Beacon Sound reissuing Insides’ 1993 4AD release Euphoria for Record Store Day 2019

This post was originally published on this site

While reissue culture continues cramming the past down our throats, it’s easy to get cynical and tell the boomers and Gen Xers to hand over the reigns of cultural commodification already. But when I get snarky af, along comes a true gem that sounds just as good now as when it was released, and I say, “Alright, you win. I love nostalgia!”

Such is the case for the upcoming Record Store Day reissue of Euphoria, the 1993 dream pop, electronica LP from Insides (singer/bassist Kirsty Yates and guitarist/programmer Julian Tardo), originally issued on 4AD imprint Guernica.

Portland, OR record store and label Beacon Sound are the brains behind the reissue, with a nice selection of “press clippings from the era” and liner notes from none other than Simon Reynolds. Here’s an excerpt of his notes: “Those who heard the record back in ‘93 may not be able to escape their own wistful hankerings for the early Nineties and its lost promise, it’s true. But if you’re listening to Euphoria for the first time, I think you will be surprised how modern it still sounds in 2019, an astonishing twenty-six years after it came out.”

Insides — all dressed up in its original packaging (complete with those 90s press clippings and Reynolds’ notes, in a limited edition of 2000 with gold-foil numbering) — is out alongside everything ELSE Record Store Day has to offer on April 13.

Insides tracklisting:

01. Walking In Straight Lines
02. Bent Double
03. Darling Effect
04. Distractions
05. Relentless
06. Skin Divers
07. Carly Simon
08. Yes
09. Skykicking

Empty Editions announces new LP from XT (Seymour Wright & Paul Abbott), Palina’tufa, share new track

This post was originally published on this site

When you start talking to me about free jazz, there better be some deep skronk-y sax action, or I’m walking! Thankfully, this latest release from Berlin audio/visual oasis Empty Editions — from sax/percussion duo XT — packs some wild, free form saxophone and skittering, occasionally glitchy percussion into an unpredictable ride across four unnamed tracks.

Palina’tufa sees saxophonist Seymour Wright and percussionist Paul Abbott dig deep into an improvisational groove and come out unscathed, with a quartet of adventurous, excellent tunes to blast you off into the unknown.

Stream “(C)” below, and keep tabs on the Empty Editions site for pre-order announcements. Until then, spend the next month wrapping your head around “(C)” and getting amped for the remainder of Palina’tufa.

deadmau5 makes his BBC Essential Mix debut as Testpilot [Stream]Movement 2017 Daily TrevorDernai 34

It’s been quite a while since deadmau5 recorded a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix: 11 years, to be exact. The producer last put forth an individual Essential Mix in 2008, but now rejoins the Essential Mix circuit, to debut his first BBC mix as Testpilot. Testpilot’s inaugural BBC showing is exactly what listeners familiar with deadmau5’s industrially oriented alias would expect: smooth, seamless scaling of the house to tech-house continuum, with some idiosyncratic Testpilot reworks of deadmau5 originals to boot.

The two hour-long effort weaves releases from signature underground imprints like Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, and Sven Väth’s Cocoon Recordings with house and techno renditions of deadmau5 classics, like “Imaginary Friends” and “The Veldt” during the first hour. Deadmau5’s comparatively more recent Rob Swire collaboration, “Monophobia” too receives a Testpilot nod. Testpilot eventually gives way to deadmau5 in the final hour of the BBC Essential Mix, in audible credit to deadmau5’s ability to glide from one artistic identity to the next.

Lunar Lunes: Tchami and Ibranovski unleash ‘Omega,’ Delta Heavy and KUURO team up on ‘Replicant’ + moreTchami Future Fest Maria Boyadgis

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Perhaps March 25th’s biggest release is a fiery collaboration between CONFESSION‘s Tchami and Ibranovski by the name of “Omega.” DEVAULT puts his own mellow spin on Alessia Cara‘s “Out of Love,” and Oliverse cranks up the intensity on a remix of Emalkay’s “Fabrication.” Golf Clap keep things smooth and grooving with their new single, “Demo Tapes,” and Riggi & Piros join forces with MOTi for “Side 2 Side.” Delta Heavy reveal their 11-track Only In Dreams LP, featuring “Replicant” with KUURO, and CloZee puts her own worldly downtempo twist on Axel Thesleff’s “Eco.” Zack Martino takes on Armin van Buuren‘s “Lonely For You” with Bonnie McKee, and Sullivan King throws it back to 2005 with a hardcore remix of Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” Grant returns to Monstercat for a contemplative new single, “Wishes,” and W&W and Maurice West link up on “Matrix.” MYRNE taps Sam Rui and Gentle Bones for “Call, Call Me,” and Amon Tobin previews his forthcoming studio album with the release of “Vipers Follow You.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Shlohmo’s long-awaited ‘The End’ gets its release [STREAM]Shlohmo Header

The End closes a four year gap in Shlohmo‘s discography. Written with the apocalypse in mind from the perspective of one who is “smoking on the couch during the extinction event” and “reading a book,” the jazzy, lo-fi bass album tells the poignantly calming tale across 13 tracks. The LP is unmistakably Shlohmo in its aesthetic; each piece is emotive, free-flowing, and twisted. However, unlike its predecessor Dark Red, The End leaves listeners with a hopeful, optimistic glow by the time it wraps up. “Still Life,” for example, closes things out on a blissful ambient note, while “Watching A Video” plays with nostalgic sound effects and warm synthesis to make one recall simpler times in life. The End ultimately succeeds in conveying the sense of acceptance one might feel in an assured doomsday event.

 

RIP: Scott Walker

Scott Walker, one of the biggest inspirations on TMT, has died at 76. From Walker’s label, 4AD:

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Scott Walker. Scott was 76 years old and is survived by his daughter, Lee, his granddaughter, Emmi-Lee, and his partner Beverly.

For half a century, the genius of the man born Noel Scott Engel has enriched the lives of thousands, first as one third of The Walker Brothers, and later as a solo artist, producer and composer of uncompromising originality.

Scott Walker has been a unique and challenging titan at the forefront of British music: audacious and questioning, he has produced works that dare to explore human vulnerability and the godless darkness encircling it. […]
