Mario Speedwagon's News Round Up: Sharon Van Etten announces tour, Young Magic sign to Carpark, Röyksopp announce US dates, Frightened Rabbit sign to Atlantic

• One of my favsies, Sharon Van Etten, is hitting the road for a small January tour in the US before she heads overseas for a string of European dates with The National. She also released her I’m Giving Up On You 7-inch this week via Polyvinyl. Check out a list of dates on her website and also take a look at her Tiny Desk Concert she filmed for NPR.

• Australian band Young Magic have signed to Carpark. The band currently resides in New York and consists of Isaac (no last name, eh?) and friends (I’m guessing it’s a revolving cast of collaborators). Carpark will be releasing the single “You with Air b/w Sparkly” on February 8, 2011 on 7-inch vinyl and digital bits. Stream the song “You with Air” on SoundCloud.

Röyksopp have announced US tourdates for March 2011. The group will be hitting major markets like New York, Montreal, Washington DC, Toronto, and Atlanta, with an eight-day break between Toronto and Montreal, which might suggest some SXSW action. More dates are to be announced so check out their website for updates. Röyksopp’s latest release Senior is “officially” available online and in stores on November 23, 2010.

• Scottish bros Frightened Rabbit have signed with Atlantic. The band previously released three records via their former home, FatCat. The end.
