Barsuk is happy to announce that Endless Wonder, the new full length recording from Say Hi, will be released on June 17th, 2014. The band will be touring with noted Australian band and labelmates Big Scary in anticipation of the record, starting April 11th in Vancouver, BC. Stereogum premiered "Such A Drag", the first single off Endless Wonder, yesterday saying it "points to a more bombastic release. Moving from brittle drums and glaring synths to sections of skronky guitars it goes all over the map while still keeping a tight structure".

Endless Wonder is available for preorder now from Barsuk (with an instant download of the album!), or from iTunes here. Download/listen to "Such A Drag" here. ·read less·

In celebration of the release of Free Samples (Music From The Film), Say Hi premiered the song "Love, Love, Love" at Stereogum (here, or listen on Soundcloud).

Free Samples (Music From The Film) is a collection of mostly instrumental music that Say Hi's Eric Elbogen wrote and recorded for the independent motion picture Free Samples between the end of touring on the last Say Hi full-length (2011's Um, Uh Oh) and before starting the next Say Hi album (due on Barsuk this fall).

Free Samples premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and will be in select theatres May 31st. Staring Jess Weixler, Jason Ritter, Tippi Hedren, Halley Feiffer and Jesse Eisenberg, the film is about Stanford Law School dropout Jillian (Jess Weixler) who finds herself trapped in food-truck hell, doling out free samples of ice cream topped with extra attitude. Over the course of one crazy day, she encounters a cast of oddball characters, including a retired movie star (Tippi Hedren), last night's drunken hook-up (Jesse Eisenberg), a friend who dreams of serving ice cream pants-less (Jason Ritter), and, of course, her ex-fianc&eacut;.

In between touring behind the brilliant Um, Uh Oh and working on a new record, Say Hi mastermind Eric Elbogen found time to compose original music for the film Free Samples. This trailer along with the film's world premiere dates at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival have just been announced. The film includes brand new, original Say Hi music and some reworked hits from previous releases.

Free Samples finds a hungover law-school dropout filling in as the server at her friend's ice cream truck, doling out free samples to locals and oddball friends alike, including a man courting her who she barely remembers from the night before. Starring Jess Weixler, Halley Feiffer, Jesse Eisenberg, with Jason Ritter and Tippi Hedren, the film was written by Jim Beggarly and directed by Jay Gammill. ·read less·
