And Sumney is also someone who can fill up a camera frame; his astonishing self-directed video for “Virile” proved that well enough. Last night, Sumney got to combine those … More »

Moog has resumed production of its iconic, 16 Channel Vocoder, first introduced in 1978. Following its debut in the late 70s, the hardware was swiftly embraced by musicians as a means to transform synthesizers, electronically encode sound, and transmute vocals.
Although the Vocoder will get an update in Moog’s 2020 rerelease, its purpose will remain the same. The new Vocoder includes 16 frequency bands from 50Hz to 5,080 Hz, external patching, and a sample and hold feature that allows users to lock specific tones. Moog has yet to set a price for the piece, but offered potential buyers a first glimpse of the Vocoder in a new promotional video that shows Moses Sumney performing with the model. A market launch date is forthcoming.

We’re going to … More »

Carroll’s Mindscape podcast this week, where she talked about the intersection of music and technology and the possibilities of AI creating music.

You might remember seven [cold] days ago when we hit you with an unconfirmed-but-certainly-credible-and-up-to-accepted-journalistic-standards report that a certain Mr.
James Woods, I mean: William Blake, I mean: James Blake was plotting the release of a new album titled Assume Form later this very [chilly] month.
Well, as it turns out, seven [freezing] days makes quite a difference in the music biz, because it’s finally been confirmed that Assume Form will assume form this month — NOT on January 25 as previously (and irresponsibly!!!) rumored, but on the much more attractive date of January 18. That’s seven [ostensibly not warm] days earlier!
Coming via Republic Records, Blake’s fourth studio album features ROSALÍA, André 3000, Travis Scott, Moses Sumney, and Metro Boomin (as previously and RESPONSIBLY rumored), as well as last year’s single “Don’t Miss It.” But it does not contain neither hide nor hair of 2018’s “If the Car Beside You Moves Ahead” (so don’t miss THAT, either). Check out the full tracklisting (which you’ve definitely never seen before) below.
Assume Form tracklisting:
01. Assume Form
02. Mile High (ft. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin)
03. Tell Them (ft. Moses Sumney & Metro Boomin)
