Listen to Cassian's 'Lafayette' one day early.
Ever wish there was more RÜFÜS DU SOL in your life? The Australian trio takes its time with releases, and that's a good thing, but the band wants to fill your head with magical rhythms the whole year through. It's confident in its good taste, and it puts that confidence on the line with the launch of a new label called Rose Avenue, named after the house in Los Angeles where the band recorded its forthcoming album Solace, due this fall.
"With this label, we wanted to continue that feeling of creating a home for us and our friends, bringing the specific style of electronic music we love to the world," RÜFÜS DU SOL says in a joint emailed statement. "We’ve been in the position where we made an album we loved -- Bloom -- and had no label in North America to release it except for our buddies ODESZA. They backed us, got our album out there, and played a huge part in building our fan base outside Australia. We are forever grateful to them for that. We want to return the favor and give artists that we love and believe in that platform. There is great music out there that people aren’t willing to take a chance on. From that idea, Rose Avenue was born."
