Kelela shares Aquaphoria WXARXP mix for Warp's 30th anniversary

Listen Now To Kelela - Aquaphoria, WXAXRXP Mix https://www.mixcloud.com/kelelam/aquaphoria/

New Merch Available Now kelela.warp.net

Contributing to Warp's epic 30th anniversary takeover of NTS.live, Kelela and long-time collaborator Asma Maroof play with effervescent abstraction, emotion and true beauty on this long-form piece of ambient free-R&B. Kelela's favorites are reimagined and one's breath is truly taken away by this combination of her sublime vocal waves and oceanic minimalist synth selections. 

"Aquaphoria is both an exploratory, healing conversation with myself and a very political, niche-filling project that has been expansive and magical to create," says Kelela. "I've always used my voice to dismantle, deconstruct and traverse genre, but this time instead of a turn up, it's for solitude, intimacy and quiet time. This one is for my people to feel whole when they are alone."

Kelela makes Aquaphoria available exclusively on kelela.warp.net alongside a newly-released short-sleeve version of her 'ribbon in the sky' tee.

From her earliest work, honesty and vulnerability have been cornerstones of Kelela's art - even when clad in the armor of the avant-garde electronics she so deftly inhabits. She delivers the emotional intensity and resonance of her message as well as the sonic seeking she is renowned for. Kelela is an artist spanning the past and future of R&B. In her hands, however, the genre knows no boundaries. 

WARP warp.net
Incubated in the charged artistic atmosphere of outlaw UK dance music in the late 1980s and early '90s, Warp quickly became synonymous with deeply adventurous experiments in sound, which also happened to capture the imagination of a wide and inspired audience. This idea of enabling idiosyncratic work to find an audience beyond the underground has come to define the label throughout its evolution into an electronic music cornerstone and eventually into the institution of visionary post-genre music that it is today.

From longtime collaborators to urgent new voices, Warp has been a consistent home for misfit artists and their distinctive visions, with a roster that has forever defied categorization. 

NTS is a global music platform and radio station, broadcasting from over fifty cities every month. NTS started as a DIY passion project in Hackney in 2011, as an alternative to stagnant mainstream radio. Since then NTS has expanded with permanent studios in Los Angeles, Manchester and Shanghai and has 600+ resident artist and DJ hosts. Consistently championing the underground scene and a leading voice in alternative culture, over half the music played on NTS isn't available on Spotify or Apple Music. With a growing global audience of 1.5 million monthly listeners, NTS is broadcasting the best in underground music on a mass scale - completely free of charge and without on-air advertising.

The Hives share new song, Third Man releasing limited 7"


THE HIVES SHARE NEW SINGLE "GOOD SAMARITAN"

THIRD MAN RECORDS LIMITED EDITION DOUBLE-A SIDE 7”
"I'M ALIVE" B/W "GOOD SAMARITAN" OUT JUNE 28th 

Photo credit: Goran Broberg


"['I'm Alive' is]...
a mighty rock stomp."


"A bold first step in a new leg of the band’s career.”
“They are still the greatest, the boldest, the colossal. You don’t watch The Hives, you experience them. This is the greatest show on Earth, and they make
sure you know it.”

Third Man Records is excited to announce The Hives' limited edition double-A side 7" of "I'm Alive" b/w "Good Samaritan," to be released on June 28. Hear "Good Samaritan" HEREBoth new tracks were produced by Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy) and recorded in Los Angeles.

In a transmission from the band they say: “This a song about helping people help themselves by not helping them? Are they sarcastic or do they hate people now? Is this punk? You never know with these Hives and it’s been a while since I saw them so let’s all go see them again and see what they are on about? Musically faster than usual but a surprising dive into the chorus that feels like going into hyper-space. Now it’s not surprising anymore. Oh well.”

Listen to “Good Samaritan” here: TheHives.lnk.to/Samaritan

The Hives recently wrapped up a string of SOLD OUT US dates with Refused. LA Weekly described the shows as “a triumphant rise from the grave by ever-demonstrative and rambunctious Hives" and the Kansas City Pitchproclaimed "these are some of the finest showmen in modern rock!" The Hives will head back to Europe for a summer festival run, including performances at the inaugural Lollapalooza Stockholm, Sjock Festival (Belgium), Mad Cool (Spain) and more. See their full tour schedule HERE.

In the twenty years since the Hives exploded around the world, they have sold out stadiums and shared stages with everyone from AC/DC to The Rolling Stones. SPIN calls The Hives “the best live band on the planet” and frontman Pelle Almqvist “the greatest frontman in rock,” and the BBC dubbed the band “a force of nature.” Rolling Stone named Veni Vidi Vicious one of the Top 100 Albums of the decade and “Hate To Say I Told You So” earned a spot on Pitchfork’s Top 500 Songs of the 2000’s. They sold millions of albums world-wide with multiple RIAA Gold-certifications.

Stay tuned for more info on what is next for The Hives.

STARDUST'S "MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER WITH YOU" OUT ON STREAMING NOW


BECAUSE MUSIC RELEASE LONG AWAITED REISSUE OF STARDUST'S "MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER WITH YOU" 

TRIO OF THOMAS BANGALTER (DAFT PUNK), ALAN BRAXE, AND BENJAMIN DIAMOND REISSUE LANDMARK SINGLE ON STREAMING PLATFORMS FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER + 12" VINYL TODAY 

STREAM/PURCHASE "MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER WITH YOU": https://stardust.lnk.to/MSBWT_PhDigi



"Stardust's 'Music Sounds Better With You' is one of the most important songs in the French house canon" - Pitchfork

"Arguably the finest example of the filter-heavy, euphoric brand of house dubbed 'French touch' that reached its zenith in the late '90s" - Billboard

"Stardust's 'Music Sounds Better With You' inadvertently changed the face of house music" - DJ MAG


The sole product of a unique collaboration between Thomas Bangalter, Alan Braxe and Benjamin Diamond, "Music Sounds Better With You" was the eye of a perfect techno-cultural storm and became an immediate touchstone for a new and uniquely French kind of dance music that foregrounded filtered disco samples and deeply swung garage rhythms. Originally released on 20th July 1998 as a single-sided 12", the landmark single today receives a long awaited vinyl reissue and has been made available on digital platforms for the first time ever via Because Music. When the reissue was announced last month the immediate and fervent response made it clear that the track has lost none of its impact over the years, including nods from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Billboard, DJ Mag, and many more.
Upon its initial release, the cut was enthusiastically embraced by France's underground nightclub scene and soon circulated throughout Europe and North America. Club by club, one DJ at a time, the song established itself as the soundtrack to a pivotal season in which electronica entered the mainstream cultural consciousness. "Music Sounds Better With You" was licensed to Virgin Records, who commissioned a video by the visionary filmmaker Michel Gondry. Buoyed by heavy rotation on MTV, the clip and song rode a wave of momentum that could only be called 'viral', selling over one million copies in an age still poised on the verge of internet virulence. 

What makes the song endure where so many other hits of that era have been relegated to curiosity? Part of it is its timelessness- the sense that it was always-already outside time: both a throwback to another generation and a musical imagining forward into a technotopian, post-human future. Another part of it is its cool simplicity, its unapologetic stripping away of anything extraneous, with nothing to disrupt or distract us from its modus operandi: to feel good experiencing music together.

the Jesus Lizard confirm December East Coast dates!

"...the Jesus Lizard endures as a force." - Chicago Tribune

THE JESUS LIZARD CONFIRM DECEMBER DATES

INCLUDES NEW YEAR'S EVE IN BROOKLYN, NY
photo by: Joshua Black Wilkins

The Jesus Lizard have confirmed 3 dates in December. The esteemed band last toured in 2018 to widespread critical acclaim and sold-out shows across the U.S. The dates are:

12/28 - Nashville, TN - Marathon Music Works ticket link
12/30 - Philadelphia, PA  - Union Transfer ticket link
12/31 - Brooklyn, NY - Brooklyn Steel  ticket link

Tickets for all shows are on sale Friday, June 27 at 10am local time.

The Jesus Lizard are singular in both performance and their career.  Speaking to the band's live show, The New York Times has used the words "extravagantly good" while Rolling Stone speaks of the band's "shattering live performances." Stereogum have called them "one of the greatest live bands ever" and  Brooklyn Vegan noted, "...it would be hard to say the Jesus Lizard have mellowed in the 30 years since forming."

The Jesus Lizard formed in late 80's Austin, TX after David Yow (vox) and David Wm. Sims' (bass) previous band Scratch Acid broke up.  They started the Jesus Lizard with Duane Denison (guitar) and a drum machine and recorded their debut EP Pure with Steve Albini in 1989.  A move to Chicago prompted the firing of the drum machine in favor of Mac McNeilly (drums) and in 1990 the band recorded their first full-length, Head, for Touch and Go.  

While the labels "seminal" and "legendary" are often applied too easily, they both accurately describe the Jesus Lizard.  They released five more remarkable LPs before disbanding in 1999, the last being 1998's Blue. During that time, they toured endlessly and issued not only the critically acclaimed studio LPs but also assorted singles, EPs, compilations and a live album.  Pitchfork has said of them: "the Jesus Lizard raised a bar that few bands have reached since...Rarely does a band have each member adding something essential to such a united, ferocious whole."
