24-year-old Californian Angelo De Augustine signed to Sufjan Steven’s Asthmatic Kitty label for his second album Swim Inside The Moon, which will be released on 18 August (US – 25 August). Along with the album announcement he shared ‘Crazy, Stoned, & Gone’ which garnered widespread praise including features from the likes of The Sunday Times and Uncut as well as radio play from 6Music‘s Lauren Laverne and Radio 1‘s Huw Stephens. Today he has shared the intricate and subtly bewitching ‘Haze’ along with the news that, following on from his support slot on Sufjan StevensNico MuhlyBryce Dessner & James McAlister‘s recent Planetarium tour, he’ll be heading out on a European tour in November with dates including Pitchfork Paris Avant-Garde and a debut London show at St Pancras Old Church. Full dates below.

The video for ‘Haze’ was animated by Matt Czap and conceptualised by Angelo De Augustine, whose original illustrations are the basis of the video. Intro sound effects also created by De Augustine.

Angelo’s setup for Swim Inside The Moon was simple: a Shure SM57 microphone next to the wall of the shower and a cable back to an analogue reel-to-reel in his nearby bedroom. He’d hit record, then run quickly to the bathroom with his guitar and sit on the edge of the tub and play and sing. For some songs, he played his mother’s 100-year-old piano in the living room, and on others he added synth and electric guitar. He kept it simple.

Swim Inside the Moon is an assured and magical collection of songs that will reach far beyond their humble origins. It contains much the same unexpected warmth and simplicity as Joanna Newsom’s The Milk Eyed Mender and Jose Gonzalez’ Veneer. A sound that took almost half his life to discover, found on his own terms; be it hitting the road to play shows, to the point of losing his voice, or the countless times he’d hit play on a recovered reel-to-reel tape machine only to have to restart the next day.

The meaning behind Angelo’s songs comes from a similarly dreamy, magical place, “I get into this place, and then I wake up with a song instead of a dream,” says Angelo, “Maybe I’ll know what it’s about later. Or maybe I knew, and I’ve forgotten.”

Last month Bedouine released her self-titled debut album via Spacebomb Records. Following the subsequent announcement of her first ever London show at London’s The Islington on Monday 9 Oct 2017 the singer and guitarist has today announced a string of tour dates later this year including support slots in the UK with Michael Kiwanuka and Matthew E. White as well as Fleet Foxes in the US next month.

Bedouine‘s release saw widespread praise including a 5/5 The Independentalbum review and features everywhere from Uncut and the Sunday Times to The FADER and Stereogum.

Bedouine has a story to match the name. Azniv Korkejian, born in Aleppo, Syria to Armenian parents, spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia, moving to America when her family won a Green Card lottery. Living at various times in Boston, Houston, Lexington, Austin, and Savannah, she eventually found a community of musicians in Los Angeles that feels like home. One day she walked into the studio of bass player / producer Gus Seyffert (BeckNorah JonesThe Black Keys) to inquire about portable reel-to-reel tape machines and ended up cutting ‘Solitary Daughter’ in a first take.

Eschewing notions of nomadic chic, Bedouine represents minimalism motivated by travel, paring down and paring down until only the essential remains. Her music establishes a sustained and complete mood, reflecting on the unending reverberations of displacement, unafraid to take pleasure along the way.

NADINE SHAH SHARES NEW TRACK ‘HOLIDAY DESTINATION’

TITLE TRACK FROM HER THIRD ALBUM COMING 25 AUGUST

ANNOUNCES ROUGH TRADE IN-STORE ON RELEASE DAY

Nadine Shah has shared the title track from her new album Holiday Destination (released 25 August) – a triumphant unification of a political message with an infectiously driving groove. The first song written for the album, ‘Holiday Destination’ led the way for Nadine to open up the deep and affecting dialogue which courses through the LP with polemical anger. She’s also announced that she’ll be playing an in-store at Rough Trade on the release date of the album.

Dealing with the subject of migration Shah cites the inspiration for the track as, “a response to this really harrowing news piece about migrants and refugees arriving on the shores of Kos in Greece by the thousands. There were some holidaymakers being interviewed and they were talking about how the situation was ruining their holiday. Despite their total and complete lack of empathy the thing which shocked me most was their bold and unashamed stance of saying such things on national television. This is what we’re seeing across the globe: people proudly expressing this hate fuelled rhetoric. It’s like, wow – some people really don’t care and they’ll happily talk about how they don’t care. I just don’t get it.”

The refrain “How you gonna sleep tonight?” echoes in the mind long after the song ends, leaving the listener to question exactly just who’s best interests are at the heart of the people in power.

The track follows on from the previously shared ‘Yes Men’ and ‘Out The Way’ – a terrific, biting and scathing lead single that received widespread praise including four weeks on the 6Music A-List.

HUNDRED WATERS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM COMMUNICATING

SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘BLANKET ME’

COMMUNICATING IS OUT 14 SEPTEMBER VIA !K7

“Extraordinary experimentation that burns bright against the stark vocals of frontwoman [Nicole] Miglis”
Best Fit

“Hundred Waters remind us just how brilliant they can be”
The 405

“Undulating, ever-evolving pop”
Clash

Listen to ‘Blanket Me’ here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usL_M7w1IEI

Website | Twitter | Facebook | Soundcloud

LA-based trio Hundred Waters – comprised of vocalist Nicole Miglis, producer Trayer Tryon and drummer Zach Tetreault – have announced their long awaited new full length, Communicating, will be released on 14 September via !K7. Along with the announcement the band have shared new single ‘Blanket Me’, a stirring piece of piano-driven catharsis that demonstrates the leap in songwriting and performance the band has undergone in the three years since 2014’s critically lauded The Moon Rang Like a Bell.

Communicating is a grand and ambitious album with an increased focus on composition that energises more than ever before. At the same time it’s more confidently experimental, unafraid to spike its pop hooks with noise, or build elaborate, fractal-like patterns out of Miglis’s multitracked voice. The album follows the release of their recent Currency EP as well as the continuing success of FORM Arcosanti, the festival they founded themselves and curate (headliners this year included James BlakeSolangeFather John Misty and Future Islands).

In the span between albums the band have travelled, separated, reunited, lost a band member, questioned relationships and strove to understand what it means to be together. At the core of the album is the relationship between Nicole and Tray, which catalysed the band in 2012. The album raises questions of romantic and non-romantic love, self-realisation, growing apart, and finding understanding. To keep it close, the album was written and recorded largely at home (the trio have maintained a shared living space over the years, moving between different homes in Los Angeles). Nicole chose to cut herself off from the outside world and recorded herself in her closet. Tray produced at the kitchen table or wherever he could make room. When they needed extra space, they set up outside the walls for a bit (drums and piano were recorded in a converted Detroit church).

Where Communicating ultimately succeeds is on the most personal, intimate level. It’s an album steeped in intense emotion at every turn, from the melodies to the rhythms to Miglis’s dramatic vocal delivery. “From a broad lens,” Miglis says, “the album is a breakup. It starts with a need for independence and it ends with an ‘all better,’ like ‘we did it’: we learned, we loved, we separated, and now it’s time for the next chapter.”

The band heads out on a US tour this Autumn; three weeks of dates across the length of the country supported at various points by Kelsey Lu and Lafawndah

Having released their latest album, FLOTUS, late last year to critical acclaim including ‘Albums of the Year’ mentions in publications such as MOJOUncutThe Guardian and Sunday TimesLambchop have shared a new version of album highlight ‘The Hustle’ entitled ‘The Hustle Unlimited’ along with news that they’ll be touring the UK in August on a run of 11 dates which include London’s Islington Assembly Hall. Lambchop will also perform at Green Man Festival.

Speaking of the new version of the track Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner said: “Sometimes things can get out of control, an impromptu idea is presented and you take that idea to a logical conclusion to see where it goes. In this case Tony Crow [piano] came up with a rather ‘Love Unlimited Orchestra’ take on the hustle during a rehearsal with Andy Stack [drums, Wye Oak]. It seemed nuts at the time but being rather nuts ourselves I thought we should try recording it and taking it all the way to full realization. Plus it was a great way to capture Andy’s tenure with us in the studio”

Lambchop’s last UK appearance was a sold-out show as a part of The Roundhouse‘s In The Round series in January and received widespread praise including four star reviews from The GuardianThe Times and the Evening Standard.

‘The Hustle Unlimited’ along with the previously shared Prince cover ‘When You Were Mine’ will be available on a limited edition 12” via City Slang during the tour and officially released on August 11th.

FLOTUS is available here.

MATTHEW DEAR SHARES NEW TRACK ‘MODAFINIL BLUES’

ANNOUNCES FIRST LONDON SHOW SINCE 2013 AT MOTH CLUB ON 21 OCTOBER

Listen to ‘Modafinil Blues’ here:
soundcloud.com/matthewdear/modafinil-blues-2/s-a7BoD

Website | Facebook | Twitter | Soundcloud

‘Modafinil Blues’ finds Matthew Dear lost in the low-hanging gloam of Topanga Canyon. He wrote it there, in the evening hours, with Troy Nōka, a longtime Frank Ocean collaborator. The song hints at conceptual roadblocks requiring more than a simple or single solution; the manifestation of a meteoric spike in cognitive function, yearning for some form of collective freedom, followed by the inevitable descent into the complexity of the fix. Dear’s baritone verse acknowledges that this existential arc is flawed, and therein lies the blues. Moody and nuanced, slightly undone and hugging the curves of the canyon; a polyrhythmic glissade through cerebral fog.

Matthew Dear is a shapeshifter, oscillating seamlessly between DJ, dance-music producer, and experimental pop auteur. He is a founding artist of both Ghostly International and its dancefloor offshoot, Spectral Sound. He writes, produces, and mixes all of his own work. He straddles multiple musical worlds and belongs to none, now nearly 20 years into his kaleidoscopic career, with five albums and two dozen EPs plus millions of miles in the rearview of his biography.

Dear kicked off 2017 as a selector, DJing regularly and contributing a deeply considered and personal mix to !K7 Records’ long established DJ-Kicksseries. This was bookended by a number of releases through his techno guise Audion. Apart from this, Dear hasn’t shared material under his own name since his 2012 LP, the multi-coloured Beams, which was preceded by the critically acclaimed avant-pop albums Black CityAsa Breed, and Leave Luck To Heaven. This return to his artistic id, apart from his other projects’ egos, makes ‘Modafinil Blues’ momentous, a prodigal shift inward to a dark and playful psyche.

Two intimate live shows have also been announced including at London’s Moth Club on 21 October. These will be Dear’s first live shows since supporting Depeche Mode on an arena tour in 2013.

Daphni (aka Caribou, aka Dan Snaith) recently announced a very special FABRICLIVE mix composed of 23 original, unreleased Daphni tracks and four new Daphni edits. Following on from the previously shared opening track ‘Face To Face’, Daphni has now shared another track taken from the mix in the form of ‘Tin’. He’s also announced that he will be playing a special 5-hour set at fabric to celebrate the launch on 21 July. The full line up is below.

For the sharper eared among Daphni fans, the full length release of ‘Tin’ has been a long time coming. The track has been floating in and out of Daphni sets for some time with fans clamouring for Snaith to upload the complete track in full. But ‘Tin’ needed to find a home that made sense and was able to fully utilise it’s euphoric build. Synthesising the steely-eyed propulsion typical of Daphni tracks with a hint of the melancholic rush of a Caribou track, ‘Tin’ finally found that home in FABRICLIVE 93.

Nadine Shah recently announced Holiday Destination – her brilliant and compelling third album out on 1965 Records (released 25 August) – an album which sees her stepping out of the shadow of the complicated relationships she examined on her second album Fast Food and taking account of the world at large. Today she has shared ‘Yes Men’, a fearless commentary on power and manipulation.

The track follows on from ‘Out The Way’ – a terrific, biting and scathing lead single that received widespread praise including four weeks on the 6Music A-List.

Speaking about ‘Yes Men’ Nadine said, “Any time is a relevant one to release a piece of work that deals with the subject matter that ‘Yes Men’ does, but this week, these upcoming days towards what could be the most important election this country has had in decades it seems so pertinent to the point that it’s violently vibrating with its own life.”

“Yes Men are the people that sell the lies and convince us that their enemy is our enemy, they’re the people who hide in plain sight behind bold typefaces on the covers of mainstream media outlets, the ones that would make us believe that the hand in power which is perpetually slapping you in the face is the hand that will someday pull us from a chasm of its own creation.

“There is a war going on but it’s not the one the Yes Men will have us believe. The real war is the divisive untruths that the Yes Men push into our homes with their aim being for us to tear ourselves apart simply to protect their own top dollar arses.”
