Merzbow + HEXA announce collaborative "Achromatic" LP for Dais Records

MERZBOW + HEXA ANNOUNCE COLLABORATIVE LP ACHROMATIC
OUT JULY 27 ON DAIS RECORDS
LISTEN TO "MERZHEX PART 2" HERE

                                                                                                                        
The esoteric noise duo known as HEXA is the sonic union of Xiu Xiu’s focal point Jamie Stewart and sonic provocateur Lawrence English. Forged out of a mutual interest in exotic birds and the decaying charms of the post-industrial age, their collaboration explores the physicality of sound and its abilities to infiltrate and occupy the body. Their collaborative work has been described as being possessed by cascading low frequency pulses and tectonic plates of sound, suspended in cavernous cathedral-like spaces.

Legendary noise artist Merzbow needs no introduction, given his prolific output and notorious experiments within the realm of human endurance and audible extremes. While Merzbow has remained a solemn figure within the canon of noise, and he is no stranger to the members of HEXA. Jamie Stewart and Merzbow worked together as a duet on a collaborative Merzxiu LP in 2015. On the other side of the spectrum, Lawrence English has curated numerous concerts for Merzbow across his native Australia.

A partnership of these three artists was born out of the collective goal of framing their work against particular sonic and visual architectures. HEXA’s initial utilization of this idea, Factory Photographs, was a commissioned piece to soundtrack the photography of filmmaker David Lynch. HEXA approached Merzbow with the idea of a collaboration that sought to collide their particular approach to physical sonics against Merzbow’s resoundingly ontological noise practice.

The result of this collision turned into a full length album, aptly titled Achromatic. Focus laid on the severe reverberation of relative noises, brandishing extreme frequencies familiar only to Merzbow and coupled by HEXA’s brutalist pulsation. Each side of the album is produced and mixed by the other, making their audio interpretation of Achromatic a sort of reverse exquisite corpse. A true snapshot afterthought from the decay of the modern age.

Dais Records is proud to announce the official release of Merzbow + HEXA - Achromatic on July 27, 2018. Mastered by Lawrence English and cut by engineer Josh Bonati, the vinyl release is pressed onto LP vinyl and is packaged in a minimalist styled 24pt stock reverse matte LP jacket designed by Joe Stewart. Comes on black vinyl as well as limited editions on clear and smoke vinyl variants. As well as worldwide digital release.

PAUL McCARTNEY EGYPT STATION NEW STUDIO ALBUM OUT SEPTEMBER 7, 2018

PAUL McCARTNEY 
EGYPT STATION
NEW STUDIO ALBUM OUT SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 on CAPITOL RECORDS
PRE-ORDERS LIVE NOW, INCLUDING DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE “I DON’T KNOW”/“COME ON TO ME”
Paul McCartney invites you on a musical journey to Egypt Station,estimated time of arrival September 7, 2018 by way of Capitol Records.
Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides–plaintive ballad  “I Don’t Know” and raucous stomper  “Come On To Me”—Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).
Of the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make.., Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”
True to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Station’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals “Station I” and “Station II,” each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (“Happy With You”), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (“People Want Peace”), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos (“Despite Repeated Warnings”). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now–with Paul’s singular unmistakeable melodic sensibility serving as guide.
Confirmation of Egypt Station’s release puts an end to speculation about a new Paul McCartney album that began with the whiting out of his Instagram account as Paul turned up at various landmarks in Liverpool. The capper was a June 9 surprise gig at Liverpool’s tiny Philharmonic Pub, during which “Come On To Me” was debuted alongside a set of classics spanning Paul’s career. Further details to come…
PRE-ORDER Egypt Station HERE, available in the following formats:
– Limited Edition heavyweight Concertina vinyl package
– Limited Edition Concertina CD package
– Digital album
– Super Deluxe Limited Edition hand numbered box set package featuring bonus tracks coming soon.

Still Corners are back with new album Slow Air which will be out August 17

still-corners
Synthpop duo Still Corners are back with new album Slow Air which will be out August 17 via Wrecking Light. (It’s their first LP in two years.) Originally from London, Still Corners are now based out of Woodstock, NY and wrote and recorded this new album in Austin, TX. “We wanted to hear beautiful guitar and drums and an otherworldliness, something almost indefinable along with a classic song writing vibe,” says Tessa Murray. “We’re always trying to get the sound we hear inside of ourselves, so we moved fast to avoid our brains getting in the way too much. The name Slow Air evokes the feel of the album to me, steady, eerie and beautiful.” First single “Black Lagoon” definitely features more guitar than we’ve heard from Still Corners in a while, while still evoking that eery night drive in the desert vibe. You can watch the video below.
Still Corners will be on tour later this year and will play Brooklyn’s Elsewhere Hall on September 18Tickets for that show go on sale June 27 at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Steady Holiday Announces New Record "Nobody's Watching," Out 8/24 on Barsuk Records, Shares Title Track

STEADY HOLIDAY

ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD NOBODY'S WATCHING

OUT AUGUST 24 ON BARSUK RECORDS


ON TOUR THIS FALL

Photo credit: Isaac Ravishankara


Steady Holiday, the indie-pop project of LA's Dre Babinski, announced her new recordNobody's Watching today -- the album is her first since signing to Barsuk Records and will be released on August 24. Produced by Gus Seyffert (Roger Waters, Beck, Bedouine), Nobody's Watching folds a sense of paranoia in the modern age into Steady Holiday's evocative soundscapes, resulting in an album that's both dreamy and unsettling. 

Stereogum premiered the album's title track today, calling it "shaggy and casual, synths cascading like a devilish grin... [Babinski] spent the time in between the two albums touring and becoming increasingly terrified at the state of the world around us. Her new album confronts that fear head-on through a series of sketches that demonstrate bad people have been in play since the beginning of time and that evil is nothing new."

Nobody's Watching is available for pre-order now

There’s no rest for Frankie Cosmos who have announced additional North American dates starting on September 13th in Baltimore, with shows in Durham, Atlanta, Austin, Detroit and Pittsburgh, ending on Oct 7th in their home of New York City. These dates will follow the band's European shows in July & August and are in support of their latest release, Vessel. See below for a full list of shows.

Ever wonder what it would be like to co-write an album with a band? Now you have the chance to find out. Loosely inspired by conceptual artist, Sol LeWitt's wall drawings, Frankie Cosmos front person, Greta Kline has created An Induced Album. Moved by the idea that LeWitt's artwork can still be installed in new forms even after his death, Kline sought to create a version of this for her songwriting. “It's the only thing I've ever made that I feel is incomplete until it is out in the world” says Kline. “Releasing recorded music is great, but I have never felt an excitement quite like this one-- that once I release this, it really changes what it is. It's not done until the audience participates, which really excites me (or actually, maybe it's never "done"). It's also very out of my control once I release it, unlike a finished recorded album, so that's scary, but fun.”

UNIFORM announce new album 'The Long Walk' on Sacred Bones. Share video & first single "The Walk". Full summer tour w/ Deafheaven.

UNIFORM ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM THE LONG WALK
OUT AUGUST 17TH ON SACRED BONES


TOURING THIS SUMMER WITH DEAFHEAVEN 


Uniform hit us with their most powerful, most emotional and bleakest endeavor yet.
Vocalist Michael Berdan and instrumentalist Ben Greenberg have joined forces with drummer Greg Fox (Liturgy, Zs) to perfect their vicious post-industrial dystopian cyber-punk. Today they've revealed a video for the album's lead single "The Walk". Created by Danny Perez, the video highlights the cynicism, absurdities and downright bloodlust of our current news cycle.  


Berdan explains, "In Stephen King's book, 'The Walk' is a shorthand colloquialism for an annual race ordered by a totalitarian American government called 'The Long Walk'. In this contest, 100 boys are made to walk south from the Maine/Canada border at a constant rate of 4mph until only one is left standing. The winner is granted anything he wants for the rest of his life, while a far more nefarious fate awaits the 99 behind him. It is one of the most cynical stories I've ever read and speaks volumes to many of the ugliest parts of the human condition."

"Over time I've come to view aspects of the book as loosely parallel to feelings I've had towards organized religion and capitalism, where for some people an unattainable ideal is set as an absolute.  We allow ourselves to be broken under rigidly defined norms regarding traditional strata, where lack of compliance leads to ostracization and success as dictated by religious and economic rule often leads to the disintegration of one's own hopes and dreams. As someone existing in late capitalism who sees beauty and personal empowerment in many of the basic tenants of all world religions, these are subjects that I wrestle with constantly."

Following the release of critically acclaimed LP Wake in Fright, which had two songs featured in the new season of David Lynch's Twin Peaks, it was time for Uniformto return to the studio. The duo upped the ante and added a third member to round out their noise, pushing them into an entirely new dimension of their signature sound. Using a mix of triggered samples and real drums along with layered synths and good old electric guitar, the trio arrived at what would become The Long Walk after only a few short days in the studio.

Lyrically throughout, The Long Walk deals with paradoxes in spirituality and organized religion. Growing up in a devout Irish Catholic household in an Irish Catholic neighborhood, Berdan went to Catholic school for most of his primary education, and even was an altar boy. Fear of Biblical hell and damnation felt tangible. As Berdan grew and matured emotionally, he began to reject Catholicism bit by bit, viewing the church as a judgmental, repressive people who choose to live their lives dictated by hateful, fear-mongering dogma.

In the recent past, Berdan found himself slowly reconnecting with his Catholic background, observing how the faith that he found so repressive served as a great source of comfort and strength for so many. Eventually, Berdan began to view at the root of Catholicism and all major world religions a practice of love, tolerance, peace, and altruism. He began identifying as Catholic again, finding that basic tenets to be good guiding principles for daily life. Yet therein lay the contradiction that drove him from religion in the first place - many of the human traditions of the church also dealt in repression, intolerance, and bigotry, and some of mankind's most hateful acts have been carried out in the name of God. Could one observe the rituals and practice of a faith while acknowledging and rejecting its ugliest elements?

The Long Walk is out August 17 on Sacred Bones Records. Uniform joinDeafheaven on a full North American tour this summer. See below for a full list of dates and pre-order information.

FLORENCE + THE MACHINE DEBUT NEW SONG “BIG GOD”

FLORENCE + THE MACHINE DEBUT NEW SONG “BIG GOD”

VIDEO OUT TODAY

SECOND SHOWS ADDED AT
BARCLAYS CENTER, HOLLYWOOD BOWL
 AND D.C.’S THE ANTHEM


HIGH AS HOPE OUT JUNE 29

 

 
NEW YORK, NY (June 21, 2018) – Florence + the Machine unveil a new song, “Big God,” and video today—watch it, choreographed by Akram Khan and Florence and directed by Autumn de WildeHERE. “Big God” is the third track to be released from Florence + the Machine’s hugely anticipated fourth studio album High As Hope, out June 29 on Republic Records.

Listen to Big God 
HERE.

Watch the music video
 HERE.

Says Florence:
‘Big God’ was written about that feeling when someone has not replied to your text, the modern phenomenon of ‘Ghosting’ which is one of my favourite words but not my favourite feeling. I was describing it to someone and they said to me ‘You need a big god’, as if the need in me were so cavernous, it would take something enormous to fill it. Probably something bigger than a text message.
It’s always been a very physical song. I saw a dance piece in my head as I was writing it, so to co choreograph something with Akram Khan was a huge honour. Autumn de Wilde fully understood what I was trying to do. The power of the desire within the void, left with yourself to rage and wonder and really it is yourself you are raging against. Not the ghost.

Akram Khan adds:
For me, this encounter with Florence and her powerful song somehow navigated itself towards the element—water. But the direction of the dance also became a resistance to all things that wish to oppress, a sort of protest dance and yet a celebratory one towards a new found freedom.

Furthermore, the band have added additional shows to their 23-city North American fall headline tour, including second nights at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl September 26Washington, D.C.’s The Anthem October 6 and New York’s Barclays Center October 10. Tickets are available to the public Friday, June 29, with pre-sales beginning Monday, June 25. Previously announced dates—on sale now—include SeattlePortlandNashvilleWashington, D.C., PhiladelphiaChicago and more. Visit

High As Hope was co-produced by Florence and Emile Haynie and features contributions fromKamasi WashingtonSamphaTobias Jesso JrKelsey LuJamie xx and Thomas Barlett. Watch the A.G. Rojas-directed video for first official single “Hunger”

The Garden Announce European Live Dates for this Autumn

THE GARDEN ANNOUNCE 10 DATE EUROPEAN LIVE RUN, INCLUDING STOPS IN LONDON & MANCHESTER
HAVING RELEASED ‘MIRROR MIGHT STEAL YOUR CHARM' VIA EPITAPH IN MARCH, THE CALIFORNIAN NEO-PUNK TWINS RETURN TO OUR SHORES THIS AUTUMN
 
‘Mirror Might Steal Your Charm’ - Listen here
 
Once again leaving genre boundaries in the dust, The Garden twins returned with ‘Mirror Might Steal Your Charm’ back in March. Taking the audience away into a still unfathomed sound world and bringing back some of the scuzzier elements of their earlier work, the duo’s more guitar focused third album was another sublime slice of post-modern pop, familiar, slightly out of sync, and a little bit unnerving.
 
Wyatt and Fletcher Shears (24) have been conceptualising their own style since well before the formation of the band in 2011. Described as auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralised, the duo represent a youthful punk scene in California with their DIY principles, thrift store-cum-glam fashion style and a vast list of influences. While 2013’s ‘Life And Times Of A Paperclip' offered a glimpse into their breakbeat-propelled world of electro-punk anarchy, it was their innovative Epitaph debut ‘Haha’ (2015) that proved them to be much more than style over substance, sadistically teasing all essences of musical genres into 17 wonderfully chaotic tracks.
 
The Garden strip off everything unnecessary about modern punk and get straight to the heart of it, consistently defying categorisation and breaking new ground with their own ‘Vada Vada’ philosophy, an idea that represents pure creative expression, disregarding all previously made genres and ideals. This is outsider music made from the inside, and when the multitude of sounds collide at pace, the results are spectacular. They play 10 shows across Europe this Autumn, starting at Plan B in Sweden on 21st October and ending with 2 nights at The Garage on 31st Oct/1st Nov. Full dates here:

Drivin' N Cryin' To Reissue 1997 Eponymous Album As "Too Late To Turn Back Now" July 27th - Relix Magazine Premieres Remastered "Keepin' It Close To My Heart"

DRIVIN’ N CRYIN’ TO REISSUE 1997 EPONYMOUS ALBUM AS TOO LATE TO TURN BACK NOW JULY 27th, 2018 VIA NEW WEST RECORDS 
 
AVAILABLE ON VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME 
 
RELIX MAGAZINE PREMIERES REMASTERED “KEEPIN’ IT CLOSE TO MY HEART” 
 
 
Drivin’ N Cryin’ are set to reissue their long out of print, 1997 eponymous album as Too Late To Turn Back Now on July 27th via New West Records.  The record was produced by Kosmo Vinyl (associate to The Clash, The Jam, and Stiff Records) and features the Drivin’ N Cryin’ trio of founding members Kevn Kinney on vocals/guitar, Tim Nielsen on bass/mandolin, along with Jeff Sullivan on drums.  The newly christened Too Late To Turn Back Now was remastered by Chris Griffin and features new, original artwork by Kosmo Vinyl which was assembled by Kosmo and longtime Drivin’ N Cryin’ tour poster artist Mike Sears.  Available for the first time on vinyl, the album was pressed at Kindercore Vinyl in Athens, GA.  Following their departure from Geffen Records, Drivin’ N Cryin’ returned to their hometown, independent roots.  Of this time, longtime tour manager Scott Munn said, “The band was firing on all cylinders going into the studio, and there was a feeling that this was their truest representation and the record they had always wanted to make.  Producer Kosmo Vinyl offered, “...I’d been around enough musicians, and in enough recording studios, to know what didn’t work.  I wanted to make a record that sounded, and felt, like the Drivin’ N Cryin’ you would go see live.  If I could do that, then I knew it would be good.  All told, we spent about two weeks at Casino Studio, and I think we got what we wanted.”  Upon its initial release, the album had success at radio with their cover of John Denver’s iconic “Leaving On A Jet Plane.”  Relix Magazine has premiered the newly remastered lead off track “Keepin’ It Close To My Heart” which can be heard HERE.  Too Late To Turn Back Now is available for pre-order now via NEW WEST RECORDS.
 
Drivin N Cryin’ frontman Kevn Kinney says of the album’s inception, “Too Late to Turn Back Nowstarted out as a series of 45 rpm 7 inches.  It was recorded in Clay Harper’s little Five Points studio and produced by Kosmo Vinyl.  Kosmo had done a couple of Clay’s singles...production and artwork, and I asked him if he’d be interested in working with us for a 45?  The first single was about Lenny Bruce!  ‘Let Lenny B’ was a song from my early 80s punk band The Prosecutors.  As well as the song Drivin N Cryin’.  Kosmo IS real life rock and roll legacy.  Not only his tenure with The Clash but his early days working at Stiff Records.  I owned every Stiff 45 and would drive from Milwaukee to Chicago to get the newest ones!  I was so honored to have his energy collaborating with us in this small, hot studio!!  This is why I do this.  This is who I am.  Gone are the major labels.  Gone are the tour buses.  And the trappings of big empty studios and expenses.  Well boys, it’s just us...None of those things have anything to do with making art.  Well, one single turned to two and since we were already four songs in, let’s add a few more and make an album…’album’ refers to a collection of recorded music by the way.  But it took 23 years to debut in all its vinyl glory!!  We can’t thank everyone at New West Records enough for this.  It sounds amazing.  I toured Kindercore Vinyl last week and was blown away.  I got my copy hot off the presses (literally) and I’ve played it every day.  It’s too late to turn back now...I’m ready!”
