Video: Skye – “Featherlight”

Trip-hop’s undisputed Queen and Morcheeba frontwoman Skye returns this Autumn with her third solo record, Back To Now, released through [PIAS] America on October 30th. Production credits for the album, which is accompanied by lead single “Featherlight”, come from the Grammy Award winner Stephen Fitzmaurice (Paloma Faith, Metronomy and Professor Green).

Back To Now sees Skye on assured form in the follow up to 2009’s Keeping Secrets. The album began life in similar fashion to her two previous releases, in partnership with her longtime collaborator and husband Steve Gordon. However, in contrast to Keeping Secrets and Skye’s solo debut Mind How You Go, guitar and piano were laid to one side and tracks instead evolved from the early barebones of beats and loops. Aware of the potential of the raw material she had written, Skye specifically sought out the production services of Fitzmaurice; “I’d worked with Stephen before when he mixed (previous single) “Love Show” and knew he’d be able to take these new songs to the next level”.

Fitzmaurice’s crisp production values couple with Skye’s ethereal voice to impressive effect, across a distinctly nocturnal soundscape. Synths bubble across early album highlights “Sign of Life” and lead single, “Featherlight”, both anchored by Skye’s effortless vocals, whilst “Every Little Lie’s” chorus mines a compulsive vocal hook to memorable effect.

Tracklisting:

  1. Troubled Heart
  2. Sign of Life
  3. Featherlight
  4. Nowhere
  5. Little Bit Lost
  6. We Fall Down
  7. Every Little Lie
  8. High Life
  9. Dissolve
  10. Bright Light

MP3: Lux – “Coroner’s Office”

Seattle duo Lux has issued another peek into the sound of its debut album We Are Not The Same, due for release on April 3rd, 2012.  The new single “Coroner’s Office” follows up the album’s first single “The Window” which was recently featured as a Magnet Magazine “MP3 At 3PM” and on the KEXP “Music That Matters” podcast.

The band wrote “Coroner’s Office” “in an addled haze of oblivion” according to the male half of the duo, David Chandler. “I was watching a lot of ‘Forensic Files’ and ‘Cold Case Files.’ There was a channel that ran this stuff 24/7. I also saw documentaries about Gacy, Gein and Dahmer. This inspired song ideas and “Coroner’s Office” seemed to encapsulate these ideas the most. The song ended up being recorded at the very last minute for inclusion on the album.”

Inspired by some of the most essential artists of the era of indie and underground music (Pavement, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, The Magnetic Fields, The Jesus & Mary Chain, New Order, Blondie), Leah Rosen and David Chandler trade off vocals, guitars, synths and drum programming on We Are Not The Same which they also wrote, recorded and mixed themselves. The album is due for release on April 3rd.

Listen/download: Lux – “Coroner’s Office”

Track Listing: 

01. Coroner’s Office

02. Out Of Love

03. The Window

04. Valerie, They’ll Never Understand

05. Little Cripple

06. X

07. Cerebellar Ataxia

08. Candy Lux

09. Cachexia

10. A Study In Apathy (Drugs, Etc)

11. 1000 Airwaves

Newest Love: French Horn Rebellion

French Horn Rebellion (Robert and David Perlick-Molinari) kick off 2011 by announcing the US self-release of their debut album The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion on April 19th digitally and May 24th physically (Once Upon A Time Records). They’re also appearing at Austin’s SXSW, stopping for an Asian date with MGMT and embarking on a 27 date North American tour supporting French electro pop outfit Yelle starting 17th April.
 
Written, produced and mixed by Robert and David,The Infinite Music…’ is a debut album that warps the fabric of dance, electro, rock and funk. Crucially, the album also follows an intergalactic narrative that tracks the physical and emotional journey of an unknown French Horn player. “There is a story running through the album, it’s about the Universe. We’re pretty clear on what the story is, but what you take away from it may be something entirely different,” says David.
  
On the back of just three EP’s to date, these two unassuming brothers, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have already toured and played with the likes of Hot Chip, Sleigh Bells, The Drums, Cut Copy and SebastiAn. 

The Brooklyn-based duo already had an illustrious pedigree; David produced MGMT’s indie release, Time to Pretend EP for New York indie Cantora Records. The band have also remixed the likes of MEN, Two Door Cinema Club, OMD and Alex Winston. Following packed out NYC performances at CMJ, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival and in support to MNDR at the launch of new Neon Gold / Popjustice party POPSHOP, FHR will visit Europe in March for a handful of shows before heading home to play SXSW and then on to Asia for shows in Hong Kong (w/ MGMT), China, Korea and Japan. Their 27 date North American tour supporting Yelle kicks off in Phoenix on April 17th.

New Downloads: WOLFRAM

Euro and Italo disco, in their purest forms, are undeniably worthy strains of this thing we call club music. Austrian mixer Wolfram believes that the populace often forgets this, and we’re partial to agree—like any genre, there is a lot of bad Euro/Italo out there, clogging our ears with tacky, unimaginative glitter.

This Johan Agebjorn take on “Fireworks” (feat. Hercules & Love Affair) is the first step in Wolfram’s campaign to rid the world’s dancefloors of junk. Supple and slinky, this track is cold new wave, golden ballad, and irresistible 90s-tinged synthpop all in one. — RCRD LBL

The full debut won’t be out until April, but here’s something to hold you over.

WOLFRAM ft Haddaway “Thing Called Love” (Legowelt Remix)
WOLFRAM ft Hercules & Love Affair “Fireworks” (Johan Agebjorn Remix)

 
WOLFRAM’s full-length debut tracklisting

01.  Hold My Breath feat. HOLY GHOST!
