Simone Trabucchi project STILL announces debut album I on PAN, thoughtlessly made me toggle the caps lock on-and-off three times in that headline

This post was originally published on this site

Milan-based musician Simone Trabucchi — whom you may know from his former brainchild Dracula Lewis, his middle brainchild Hundebiss Records, or his most recent brainchild, a hard-hitting team-up with Simone Bertuzzi under the moniker Invernomuto — is STILL going hard at that whole “art” thing, but this time it’s with a brand new project coincidentally called…STILL. And what better way to inaugurate a new moniker than with a full-length album on PAN? The new LP is called I, and it’s out September 15.

I know what you’re wondering: Is this just going to be a re-skin of everything I already loved about Dracula Lewis and/or Invernomuto in a fancy new package? Well, the answer, friends, is “NO!” although it may tread on similar thematic minefields. STILL “follows the unearthing of the histories that connect [Trabucchi’s] hometown of Vernasca to Ethiopia and Jamaica… [in which] ‘computerized riddims’ sustain a shared gospel channeled through a polyphony of voices.” Wait a second, I know what you’re thinking again (I’m really good at this): Polyphony of voices? Whatever could that mean? Well, it turns out Trabucchi isn’t alone on this new excursion; he’s being joined by six African-Italian vocalists (also conveniently based out of Milan)! Together on I, they use “the medium of language” to contemplate “the historical weight of words” and Italy’s complicated and “overlooked” colonial legacy. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m speechless! (You’re not the only one who can play with language, Trabucchi!)

But we all know why you really read these silly news stories: those tasty pre-release songs! Lucky for you, you can listen to “Nazenèt [Wasp Riddim]” below, followed by the record’s full tracklist. But STILL (ha, sorry): be sure to say “thank you” by pre-ordering I on digital and/or vinyl formats over at STILL’s spiffy Bandcamp page…while you STILL can. And be grateful I only made one two three lazy “STILL” pun[s] in this whole article!

I tracklisting:

01. Haile Selassie Is the Micro-Chip
02. Bubbling Ambessa [Afrikan Messiah Riddim]
03. Nazenèt [Wasp Riddim]
04. Don’t Stop [Wondo Riddim]
05. Rough Rider
06. BANZINA [Banzina Riddim]
07. Gozpaal [Mustard Riddim]
08. Still Sound Boy Test {Interlude}

♫ Listen: Rob Magill – February Paintings Series [Vol. 1 & 2]

This post was originally published on this site

Vol​.​1 (Focus, Memory, Staff. “compositions from 2014​-​2016”)

Come back king, hero denier, veteran feels: Rob Magill continues to tell the story of Weird Cry in strokes of color. (Focus, Memory, Staff. “compositions from 2014​-​2016”) fucks on so many canvased sounds only the repeat offender could draw the demon out from within. It’ll only feel more and more like adulthood is moving away from youth in an old age of candy-cane:

Vol​.​2 (Escape to Freedom)

Explore the consideration of this title, (Escape to Freedom), while finding yourself caught by Magill’s literature of woodwinds. What is there to dissect? How is he fashioning the notes? At what deliberate action does he expel all conventional, but elaborates the suggestive. What are his lungs going through? At what point does this match up psychologically mid-composition. Painted, fresh:

Chance the Rapper & The Social Experiment – Gimmie A Call (feat. Taylor Bennett) [Original Mix]

This post was originally published on this site

From singing songs about his daughter to providing support to his hometown of Chicago, Chance the Rapper is an artist who quite obviously values the relationships in his life. Keeping it in the family this time, Chance has enlisted his brother, Taylor Bennett, and longtime friends and collaborators The Social Experiment for his latest offering.

In a time where popular hip hop production is an increasingly digital art form, Chance the Rapper and his friends take a step back with this soulful jam. Sparing a few piano keys and pieces of percussion, “Gimmie A Call” is performed almost completely a capella. Chance the Rapper’s friendly vocals welcome the listener into the track as the voices of The Social Experiment begin to form around his warm and unmistakable croon. The song drops to just a beat-box as Taylor Bennett lays down his inspired verse, before the Social Experiment close out the track with a calming outro.

Philip Selway, undisputed greatest drummer, member of Radiohead, and guy named Philip, announces film soundtrack, shares title track

This post was originally published on this site

On the whole, I think we can all agree that Philip Selway is underappreciated. And I don’t just mean as a great drummer…or as a member of Radiohead. I mean: even as a famous Philip! Granted, when you’re competing with Philips the likes of Collins, K. Dick, Punxsutawney, and Head Screwdriver, standing out can be a challenge. But surely, Philip Selway at least deserves to have his name on the Wikipedia page for “Philip,” sub-heading “Other Notable Philips,” no?

Well, let’s give Mr. Selway his due and see what he’s up to these days…Oh, here’s something: On September 15, Bella Union will be digitally releasing Philip Selway’s score for the upcoming Polly Steele-directed film, Let Me Go, with a physical release to come on October 27. Neat! Maybe this’ll finally put good ol’ Philip on the map.

For the score, Selway wanted to create something that reflected the film’s emotional complexity. So, while the score is grounded in piano and strings, it also makes use of things like musical saw and bowed vibraphone to give things a little more of a haunted, uneasy feeling.

Treat Philip Selway like one of the other notable Philips he is, and listen to “Let Me Go” below. Once again, the OST is out digitally on September 15, physically on October 27, and it can be pre-ordered here. Now can someone please go add Philip Selway’s name to the “Philip” Wikipedia page and make that whole first paragraph outdated? I would do it myself, but I’m a little busy at the moment…
