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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jA9xta0V58

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).

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 19.29.46

Carnation tracklist:

1. Bled to Death
2. Heaven You Better Come In
3. Shatter You Through
4. For Every Bite
5. Daddy I Cut My Hair
6. A Rope Ain’t Enough
7. I Let Him Deal
8. Shine of the Night
9. Runaway and the Pyro
10. It Wants Everything
11. Back With the Family

Praise for Me Moan:

‘Revel in the murky atmospherics that surround the melancholy and extraordinary power of that voice’
Sunday Times ‘Album of the Week’

‘Its uniqueness makes it indispensable’
Time Out 4/5 ‘Album of the Week’

‘A bewitching star whose rumbling baritone may be one of the breakout voices of the year’
Shortlist

Me Moan is a remarkable record that takes a genre rooted in formulae and clichés – country – and spins it into something fresh, compelling and edgy’
9/10 Drowned in Sound

‘Traditionally, country music and club-derived electronics make for awkward bedfellows, but it’s a testament to the strength of Gibson’s strange vision that Me Moan might well become a touchstone of modern-day Americana’
8/10 Uncut

‘Gibson radiates confidence and a taste for the unexpected’

Jaakko Eino Kalevi has shared a new single and video for ‘Deeper Shadows‘, from his forthcoming self-titled debut album that’s due for release on Weird World on 15 June 2015.

Directed by Charlotte Rutherford (Perfume Genius, Marina & The Diamonds), the surreal, illuminous clip – which also features vocalist and album collaborator Suad Khalifa - perfectly accompanies the ebullient, fever-dream bounce of ‘Deeper Shadows’, one of Jaakko’s boldest pop moments to date. A truly mesmerising video, each frame swirls hypnotically from one to the next, as the full extent of Jaakko’s brilliant world is unveiled in idiosyncratic fashion.

Further to the news that Jaakko will be coming to the UK in June – 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.

Watch the video for ‘Feeling Good Is Good Enough’ here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBRU902bZOw

Richmond, Virginia-based singer, bandleader and modern soul visionary Matthew E. White released his second album Fresh Blood to critical acclaim earlier this year, which has been lauded as being “calibrated for maximum hot-buttered gorgeousness” by the Evening Standard in a 5/5 review, as well as being described as “transcendentally beautiful” by The Independent on Sunday.

Feeling Good Is Good Enough‘ is the endlessly enjoyable new single from Fresh Blood, a heartfelt and deeply infectious tune that is soaked in White’s affable charisma. Formed of intricate piano and soaring strings, it’s a spring staple that’ll have you hooked on its sing-along chorus for a long time to come. Accompanying the song is a new video, which features behind-the-scenes footage of White’s extraordinary show with a 30-piece orchestra at BRIC Arts Media House in Brooklyn, New York.

Following a successful UK tour – which included two sold-out nights at Village Underground - Matthew E. White will play Green Man Festival over the weekend of 20 – 23 August.

Fresh Blood is available now on CD, vinyl and digital download.

Following a colossal sold out show at Brixton Academy (“intimate yet communal rave triumph” - 4/5 The Guardian), Caribou have shared a brilliant video for the Our Love staple, ‘Can’t Do Without You‘.

Those who’ve taken a liking to the creature can try their luck and enter a competition to win it here. Entries from all over the world are welcome!

Furthermore, Caribou have also been confirmed as part of the Glastonburyline up this June. The news expands an already busy summer for the band, who also headline Field Day on 6 June and play Latitude in July as part of a wider European festival tour.
