Elmar is Matt Pryor's own label. Killed or Cured is the only other release on it to my knowledge. It's in conjunction with Curb Appeal Records.

At the Foot of My Rival is my favorite album of the year so far. I did not like Story like a scar at all and loved worse for the wear. To me this album can be best compared to worse for the wear. This is definetly one of if not the best of Matt Prior's works (get up kids, new ams, terrible twos).

Everyone should give this a listen and if you only listen to one track listen to without a sound or Story like a Scar (the song).

at the foot of my rival

"at the foot of my rival" - the newest new amsterdams cd comes out sept. 25th. you can download it now from the myspace page now or from itunes and the new ams store on sept. 4th. If you download it from itunes you get the three song ep "the companion of my rival" for free. you can purchase the ep from itunes as well.

this is a record of firsts.

this is the first new ams release to come out on good vinyl. 180 gram. yeah. if you order the vinyl from our webstore (that launches spet. 4th) you get a download of the entire record for free. that will save you the hassle of having to import it. In fact, if you order the cd from our webstore you get the download for free immediately as well. you can choose mp3 or the higher quality aiff.

this is the first new ams record (of all new material) to be released on their own label after a long and fruitful relationship with Vagrant Records. The label is called Elmar, named after Matt's son Elliott Marshall and is in colaboration with Curb Appeal Records. Which, for anyone keeping score is partially owned by fellow Ex-get up kid Jim Suptic.

this is the first new ams record produced and recorded by the band at home. it took over a year to write, edit and record...mostly edit. the record was recorded at Matt's house primarily, a little at the lake of the ozarks and mixed by Colin Mahoney who did the band's Killed Or Cured 2XCD earlier this year.
the band will be on the east coast up through cmj and chicago in december with the new 5-7 piece band. the rest of the u.s. and overseas (another first) in 2008.

check out the first video for "fountain of youth" it's crazy psychedelic. Vamos.

this is, at it's heart, a rock record. as Matt would say, "I used to make rock records almost exclusively, it's been a while since I've tried it on. We were due for one".
