You guys must be tired of hearing us talk about Gold Fields, since we talk about them so often. I have some updates on the Australian band, their debut album will be called Black Sun and it's set for release February 26th, 2013..…
Look like the Australian group Gold Fields will be heading back to Minneapolis this February 17th! I tried to warn these guys the last few times they were here to not tour here in the Winter, but … I guess we'll find out how they like the weather, haha.
Look for Gold Fields to make their debut television appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! On February 27th, just a day after the release of their highly anticipated debut album Black Sun on Astralwerks.

Award-winning singer/songwriter essence goldman is releasing her debut children album A Dog Named Moo and His Friend Roo on January 29th, 2013, via myKaZoo Music/Universal Music Enterprises.
The story behind the album was the album began as a gift of love for her son. She had all these fun songs written that she decided to put it in an album to share with the world.
In addition to the A Dog Named Moo... album, she is releasing "T REXXXXX!" as a book; "Everybody Has a Butt" as a smart phone app; and three animated videos ("T REXXXXX!" in claymation, "Everybody Has a Butt" and "Yum Yum").
MY GOLD MASK
Gretta Rochelle and Jack Armondo are My Gold Mask, and their new album, Leave Me Midnight is coming out February 19th, 2013. Check out "Further It Gets" from the upcoming album:
The band will be heading out on tour in support of Leave Me Midnight soon.
Hawklion's debut EP Gold & Silver was released recently. No other details about the band were given, other than that they're from Dublin, Ireland.
I believe the EP is out on Manazo Record and hopefully that's the correct cover artwork (the one on their soundcloud page is incorrect).
