SEVDALIZA RELEASES 'THE CALLING' EP TODAY

LISTEN TO THE EP HERE:

INTRODUCES VIRTUAL FORTUNE TELLER, MAJORA:





Iranian-born Dutch artist Sevdaliza releases 'The Calling' EP today via her own her own independent label, Twisted Elegance. The haunting EP solidifies Sevdaliza as true force as she continues to expand on her varied skills as a self-taught singer, songwriter, producer, director and composer. It also sees her further evolve her abstract and frequently minimalistic brand of music fused with breakbeat, triphop, grime, punk and experimental elements and 100% unapologetic art. The EP is out on all DSPs now and a special Moonstone colored vinyl of EP will arrive on April 21st. For more info visit: http://sevdaliza.com/.

Lined with a solar connection, the EP comes a day before the arrival of the "Full Blue moon" and she also dropped the previous singles on the arrivals of two different moons, the "Black Moon" and the "Blue Moon". Today she introduces Majora, a digital project and virtual fortune teller who visually captures the essence of the EP and shares personalized poems with fans on her website. The stunning 3-D model also captures fans' zodiac information and will deliver custom poems to them via Sevdaliza's social channels in the coming months. It was developed by Hirad Sab and Dalena Tran. Check out Majora here: http://majora.sevdaliza.com/.

More on Majora:
Majora is about 60 years old, chain-smoking, her face wears her age, and wears Persian traditional face tattoos. She is blind, her eyes glazing right through you, bright white like the lightbulb in front of her. She recites a short script of circa 30 seconds she makes you feel at ease, like you came to the right place because you didn't know exactly what it is that you are looking for, she ensures you that you might find it here. she recites a short personalized poem (randomly scripted out of 40 poems), she explains that in order to follow up, she needs you to give her a small piece of information.

From Sevdaliza:
"I find the imminate connection of the emotional body to the mind and soul intensely beautiful. Whenever I find ease in the mind, my physical pains dissolve. De-hydration of the soul, means drying out the cracks of the joints. These pains are experienced as real. They reflect in each layer of our being. In order to have clearness in our head, we need to clear our hearts. 'The Calling' is the soul telling me to return. Ground. She is the birth of all that is. When her voice cracks, it tenderly does like joints.

I believe there will come an end to where these painpoints point. By listening.

I am,

before I am mine or yours."

LORD HURON’S NEW SONG “WHEN THE NIGHT IS OVER” DEBUTS TODAY

LORD HURON’S NEW SONG “WHEN THE NIGHT IS OVER” DEBUTS TODAY

VIDE NOIR OUT APRIL 20 ON
WHISPERING PINES/REPUBLIC RECORDS

UNRELEASED SONGS STREAMING AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS
ACROSS THE COUNTRY

EXTENSIVE WORLD TOUR ON SALE NOW

When the Night is Over,” a new song from Lord Huron, debuts today. Listen/share it here:https://LordHuron.lnk.to/WTNIOPR. Of the track, singer/songwriter/producer Ben Schneider says, “We wanted this song to feel something like a Raymond Chandler story, a desperate search through a rain-soaked, neon-lit city. The groove section in the middle is one of my favorite passages on the album.” The track appears on the band’s highly anticipated record Vide Noir, out April 20 on Whispering Pines/Republic RecordsVide Noir can be pre-ordered here:https://LordHuron.lnk.to/VideNoirPR

Additionally, the band have made the additional seven songs off Vide Noir available to stream at geo-locations across the US, Canada and UK. Locations include hikes, national parks, beaches and even a volcano. Head to followtheemeraldstar.com for more information. The band has hinted at further immersive experiences to come, crafted to expand upon the album’s narratives and theme. A true multi-media artist, Schneider has once again created a hidden world to inhabit within Vide Noir. Watch the album trailer at http://bit.ly/2FjvWsi

In support of Vide Noir, the band is set for a worldwide tour beginning this spring. Even as the band headlines their largest venues to date, many shows (including New York City, Chicago, Boston, Oakland and Seattle) have sold out months in advance. Every pair of tickets ordered for the U.S. headlining tour includes a copy of Vide Noir. Tickets for the dates are on sale now at http://lordhuron.com.

Most recently, the band performed their lead single “Wait by the River” on “
Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The single is already the subject of widespread critical praise; the Los Angeles Timesproclaims, “It’s a gorgeous song, one with the majesty of a 1950s doo-wop ballad,” while SPINadds, “[‘Wait by the River’] offers a refined, waltz-like sound that can’t quite cover for the sins of a fatalistically obsessed narrator.”

Vide Noir was written and recorded over the past two years at Lord Huron’s Los Angeles studio and informal clubhouse, Whispering Pines, and was mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips/MGMT). Schneider found inspiration wandering restlessly through his adopted home of L.A. at night: “My nighttime drives ranged all over the city—across the twinkling grid of the valley, into the creeping shadows of the foothills, through downtown’s neon canyons and way out to the darksome ocean. I started imagining Vide Noir as an epic odyssey through the city, across dimensions, and out into the cosmos. A journey along the spectrum of human experience. A search for meaning amidst the cold indifference of The Universe,” he says.


Originally a musical and visual solo project by Michigan-native-turned-Angeleno Schneider, Lord Huron now includes members Mark Barry (percussion), Miguel Briseño (bass) and Tom Renaud (guitar). After a pair of independent EPs, Lord Huron released two full-length albums Lonesome Dreams (2012) and Strange Trails(2015) on IAMSOUND Records, followed by extensive touring and prestigious festival appearances both stateside and abroad. After appearing in the hit Netflix show “13 Reasons Why” the band’s song “The Night We Met” (from Strange Trails) was officially certified Platinum in January 2018.

Chris Carter (ex-Throbbing Gristle) Releases First New Album in 17 Years; Listen Now

CHRIS CARTER (EX-THROBBING GRISTLE)

RELEASES FIRST SOLO ALBUM IN 17 YEARS

LISTEN TO CHEMISTRY LESSONS VOLUME ONE
Photo: Cosey F Tutti
“… a new electronic masterpiece” – Electronic Sound

“An atmospheric masterclass” – Q Magazine

“…simultaneously looks back over its shoulder and glares straight into the eye of the future” – The Wire

“… one of the most astonishing electronic works…” - PROG

"...each [song is] propelled by percolating, Age Of Tomorrow synthesizers and awash in ghostly, extra-terrestrial voices to conjure late-night adventures in the lab." – AV CLUB

"...an overarching etude on experimental electronic music." – POPMATTERS

CHRIS CARTER has released his eagerly awaited new album – and his first in 17 years – Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lessons Volume One. Listen to the album here.

In addition, Carter has launched a series of “chemistry lesson” videos with Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lesson on Artwork. In the lessonCarter explains the process and inspirations behind his self-designed artwork. This will be followed tomorrow by Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lesson on Effects Pedals. Keep checking http://ccclv1.net/ – Chris’s newly launched website featuring an interactive periodic table – for additional lessons in the coming weeks.

Chemistry Lessons Volume One is populated with insistent melodic patterns and a distinct sense of wonderment at the limitless possibilities of science. “If there’s an influence on the album, it’s definitely ‘60s radiophonic,” Carter says. “And over the last few years I’ve also been listening to old English folk music, almost like a guilty pleasure, and so some of tracks on the album hark back to an almost ingrained DNA we have for those kinds of melodies.”

As a founding member of Throbbing Gristle alongside Cosey Fanni Tutti, Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Chris Carter has had a significant role in the development of electronic music – a journey which has continued through his releases as one half of Chris & Cosey and Carter Tutti and a third of Carter Tutti Void – as well as with his own solo and collaborative releases.

He is also credited with the invention and production of groundbreaking electronics – from the legendary Gristleizer home-soldered effects unit through to the Dirty Carter Experimental Sound Generating Instrument and the sold-out TG One Eurorack module (designed with Tiptop Audio, these modules can be heard during Carter’s set at a recent Rough Trade event) and the Future Sound Systems Gristleizer modules – Carter has created the means to make sounds as well as making the sounds themselves.

The 25-track album was recorded in Carter’s own Norfolk, England studio and the artwork and accompanying videos were self-created, taking cues in part from battered old experimental BBC broadcast LPs.

Despite having been worked on over an extended period between various artistic projects in a variety of different moods, situations and circumstances, Chemistry Lessons Volume One’s experiments never feel like Carter noodling around aimlessly in his studio-laboratory. Instead there is an inner coherence and a distinctively Chris Carter approach to sound and execution that showcases the sonic scientist’s restless, questing creative spirit forever scouting for new ideas.
