Earlier in the year, Caribou shared a video for ‘Can’t Do Without You‘, offering fans a chance to win the creature that starred in it. Now, Dan Snaith offers this update:

Hello everyone,

You may have been wondering what happened to the creature from the ‘Can’t Do Without You’ video.

A couple months ago we ran a contest to find this creature a new home. We received over 500 mails from every corner of the world proposing myriad purposes for it – including an aeronautical engineering student who wanted to attach it to a rocket and fire it into space.

But right from the first time we read it, one proposal in particular grabbed our attention, and after researching the logistics of transporting this gentle giant halfway around the world, we are proud to announce the winner today!

Harry Marshall emailed us on behalf of a group of students at the Welsh School of Architecture, planning to help build a playground on the island of Koh Rong in Cambodia, together with non-profit organisation Friends of Koh Rong.

The Cambodian island of Koh Rong is certainly not the only island that is dealing with the effects of increased tourism but is one such example, where rapid change is presenting the local community with overwhelming challenges.

Friends of Koh Rong was set up in 2013 to help deal with exactly those problems through increasing (the previously limited) access to education, healthcare and increasing the community’s capacity to deal with the strain brought by more tourism:

“Our organisation aims to help in mitigating the negative impacts of the tourism industry, and to enable our beneficiaries to stand in the best possible position to benefit from the changes that have arrived on this island, their home.”

As tourist infrastructure has encroached on more and more space on the island, there is no place for the school aged children on the island to play. The playground, sitting next to the school set up by Friends of Koh Rong, will provide an area for the children to play and be safe. The creature will provide a centrepiece for the playground.

Harry and his team are raising money to complete this playground right now with construction due to begin towards the end of July – right around the time the multicoloured creature, which is just now being crated up and in preparation for its transpacific journey, will arrive on the island.

Support the construction of the playground here:

DAUGHN GIBSON SHARES VIDEO FOR ‘DADDY I CUT MY HAIR’

CARNATION TO BE RELEASED 8 JUNE 2015 VIA SUB POP

Watch the video for ‘Daddy I Cut My Hair’ here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-WSwkx9Sh0

Daughn Gibson has shared a video for ‘Daddy I Cut My Hair’, the latest track lifted from his forthcoming album Carnation. Directed by Matt Amato, it follows the movements of an eleven year old girl as she navigates the rugged terrain of an abandoned yet mesmerising American landscape. The entire clip was filmed on location in Pennsylvania’s coal region, featuring the towns of Centralia, Jim Thorpe, Mahanoy City, Mt. Carmel, Nesquehoning, Shamokin and Shenandoah.

Daughn Gibson’s Carnation will be available 8 June 2015 from Sub Pop Records.

Pre-orders of Carnation are available through iTunes. A Loser Edition on white, black and blue swirl-colored vinyl will be available from independent record stores (while supplies last).

Ahead of the release of his debut self-titled Weird World album on 15 JuneJaakko Eino Kalevi has shared a new single from the record, ‘Hush Down’.

‘Hush Down’ is another excellent example of Jaakko’s hypnotic idiosyncrasies – a spellbinding pop song sparkling with flashes of technicolour and fortified with his signature dreamlike wonder. A handsome strut and sashay, ‘Hush Down’ is at once sleek, seductive and wildly original in its execution.

Further to the news that Jaakko will be playing in the UK later this month – which includes an album launch show at Courtyard Theatre in London – he will also be heading out with Unknown Mortal Orchestra on all of their dates across the UK and Europe this September.

Bop English - AKA White Denim frontman James Petralli – has announced an instore performance at Rough Trade East in London on 3 June at 7pm, ahead of his sold out Oslo show later that day.

With a band that features former Shearwater bassist Kevin Schneider and White Denim member Steve Terebecki, the Bop English tour is rapidly gaining momentum, with Bristol, Brighton and Manchester sold out as well as London.

James has also shared a new video for recent single ‘Struck Matches‘. Having discovered someone known as Sally Cinnamon performing a hula hoop routine to the song on Instagram, James loved what he saw so much that he contacted Sally to see if she’d make a longer clip to serve as the single’s video. She was more than happy to oblige, and will consequently be attending the last show of the tour in Manchester!

RESIDENCY AT BARBICAN’S STATION TO STATION JULY 5TH – 7TH

OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS ON THE THEME “SACRED OBJECTS FROM SUBURBAN HOMES”

“a technological prophet in her own time” NY Times

“a musical tour de force” Sunday Times

“glitch-tastic American singer EMA continues her dystopian scoping, bringing an immersive “living room” set to Barbican” Time Out

“…an ability to exert control over their art, and a refusal to be silenced” Pitchfork

Since releasing the critically-acclaimed and eerily prescient album The Future’s Void in April last year, EMA has expanded her vision across a variety of mediums. She created a multimedia collection and series of politically-charged singles on NewHive, and scored an upcoming horror film starring Chloe Sevigny.

Following a year of international touring and an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, Anderson has returned to her roots with a series of non-traditional performances. Earlier this year at MoMA PS1 in New York, she worked with collaborator Zach Krausnick to create I Wanna Destroy, the first instance of “live VR” – improvised virtual reality.

Using a Microsoft Kinect to track her movements in real time, Anderson performed a new song cycle while audience members explored a bespoke virtual environment and her avatar morphed between a blonde replicant and a reptilian known as “SnakeMan”.

In May, Anderson was invited to participate and perform at the New Museum as part of Deep Lab, a cyber feminist collective tackling issues of privacy and surveillance. She presented Does It Still Feel Weird If I Just Use My Hands?, in which audience members were asked to draw on one another.

In a recent profile on artist Ryan Trecartin, the New Yorker described him as a “bridge” person, or “someone who grew up before the revolution in digital technology, whose effects are now second nature to the generation that was born into it.” Anderson considers herself part of this group: kids who remember life before cell phones and big internet, but have grown along with technology and now embrace aspects of it in their work. Despite working with hyper-modern issues of tech and connectivity, Anderson’s work retains an emotional resonance and a human touch. Her virtual reality work has been described as “DIY” and “anti-capitalist”.

For her upcoming performance at the Barbican, Anderson and Krausnick will be in residence at the Barbican Station to Station from July 5th-7th, and will be incorporating submissions from an open call for “Sacred Objects from Suburban Homes”.

According to Anderson, “suburban” is a state of mind rather than a geography, and “sacred objects” can be practical or decorative, old or new, prominently displayed or hidden away. Examples may include a TV remote, a decorative ashtray, Grandma’s place settings, a new tech gadget or a school football trophy.

Submit your own “sacred objects” on NewHive with the tag #sacredobjects or via email: sacred@iwannadestroy.com

Selected objects will be rendered in 3D and included in an immersive performance taking place on July 7th at Barbican. Anderson and Krausnick are also encouraging Barbican visitors to bring in physical objects during their residency July 5-7 to be included in the installation.

Open Book‘ is the next single lifted from the new José González album Vestiges & Claws. The video – directed by Mikel Cee Karlsson - is the second part in a two-part series. The first part was a video from Calexico, for their single ‘Falling From The Sky’.

Of the video, Karlsson said: “The ideas for this video have been lingering for a while, ever since I saw Albin Karlsson and Björn Renner’s worm-like creation made for a show at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm.

In original form, the “worm” was strictly covered in black leather. But I wanted to make it more like a living thing, like an evolutionary side step, a creature that is stuck in its co-dependency and has rather few possibilities in this world but still has the capacity to dream of better things.”

After two sell out shows at Scala in London back in March, José will return to play a third London headline show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Thursday 28 May.

DAUGHN GIBSON SHARES ‘IT WANTS EVERYTHING’ TRACK

CARNATION TO BE RELEASED 8 JUNE 2015 VIA SUB POP

Listen to ‘It Wants Everything’ here:
https://soundcloud.com/subpop/daughn-gibson-it-wants-everything/

Carnation, the third album by Daughn Gibson, is a high-wire balancing act – sexual at times, but also emotionally intense and comforting in others. The album features Daughn’s strongest and boldest songwriting yet, with lyrical subject matter that shares a fictional kinship with writers Raymond Carver and Donald Ray Pollock.

On ‘It Wants Everything’, one of Daughn’s grittiest and yet most accessible tracks to date, his haunting vocal and a brooding bass line are focal points in a truly muscular track that lingers in the mind long after it’s through. ‘It Wants Everything’ is written from the point of view of a drunk and belligerent “jester of circumstance” – a southern tale reimagined in majestic, mesmerising fashion.

Daughn Gibson’s Carnation will be available 8 June 2015 from Sub Pop Records.

Pre-orders of Carnation are available through iTunes. A Loser Edition on white, black and blue swirl-colored vinyl will be available from independent record stores (while supplies last).
