CD - Out 06.14.2019
"CD" is the long-play form of three Jack Whitescarver singles released by Dots Per Inch Music in April and May, 2019. This CD-exclusive release features the A and B sides of each of said singles, with three additional intercalary tracks that glue together the characteristically standalone records.
“Anything” - Out 04.12.2019
“Anything" is the last single before Grace's album, 2nd, is released on April 22nd. Following "Mirror" and "Icing on the Cake," "Anything" is a testament to Grace's ability to make broodier, heavier music, with no sacrifice of catchiness, immediacy, and relatability. It is the emotional center of 2nd, her debut record.
“Icing on the Cake” - Out 03.22.2019
Grace’s second single in anticipation of 2nd, “Icing on the Cake” quickly became a radio favorite across the US.
“Mirror” - Out 03.10.2019
Grace’s debut single for Dots Per Inch Music, it was covered by Pitchfork upon release which kicked into motion a steady rise for the Brooklyn native. Remixes expected in August of 2019.
“Mirror is about breaking out of obsessive self-critique. A "mirror mirror on the wall" refrain acts as a mantra of self motivation.”
“Tonight” c/w “The Feeling” - Out 05.24.2019
The third & final of a series of singles released by Whitescarver on Dots Per Inch Music in April & May of 2019.
“Tonight” captures the odd mix of pleasure and anxiety that’s involved in “going out”. The song starts off in a celebratory aura of urgency, but slowly decays into questions of fidelity and the future.
A simple love song, “The Feeling” is about giving in to fate, finding romance in a friendship, and letting the dawn break nighttime without a fight.
“Wrong Energy” c/w “ Everyday” - Out 05.10.2019
The second of a series of three singles released by Whitescarver on Dots Per Inch Music in April & May of 2019. Both songs featured music videos produced by friends of the artist. Both musically and visually, this single above the rest marked a confident embellishment of Whitescarver’s more experimental previous releases on the label and set the tone for more club-friendly releases ahead.
“Baby” c/w “Date” - Out 04.19.2019
The first of a series of three singles released by Whitescarver on Dots Per Inch Music in April & May of 2019. “Baby” was covered by Office Magazine on the day of release. Two bonafide slow jams about the throws of love, “Baby” & “Date” confidently explore themes including fidelity, loss, and romantic excitement.
2nd - Out 04.22.2019
Grace Ives’ seismic debut record released on Dots Per Inch Music in April of 2019. This record featured songs written over a 4 year span. Produced by Ives, engineered by Tom Moore of Dots Per Inch Music, and mastered by Sarah Register. Well received critically and hit #35 on non-commercial radio in the US.
