Mount Kimbie Release “Blood and Form,” New Album Out May 28th

Cold Spring Fault Less Youth Out May 28th Via Warp

“A subtle epic.” – FADER

“The first single from Cold Spring Fault Less Youth “Made to Stray,” is Mount Kimbie nudging their way toward the dancefloor, interested in filling space as much clearing room for it … By the time the vocal comes in, you’re hooked.” – Pitchfork (Best New Track)

After releasing the mesmerising, percussive “Made to Stray” just a few weeks ago, Mount Kimbie now reveal “Blood and Form” from their forthcoming second album, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. As with “Made to Stray,” “Blood and Form” marks a noticeable shift in the duo’s use of vocals; the melodies are equally hypnotic but “Blood and Form” has a raw and hazy edge. Listening to the two tracks side by side shows the evolution of Mount Kimbie’s sound and the breadth of their new material.

Mount Kimbie ‘Blood and Form’ (album ‘Cold Spring Fault Less Youth’)

Recorded in their South London studio, Mount Kimbie’s eagerly awaited sophomore record Cold Spring Fault Less Youth will be released on May 28th through Warp Records.

Since 2009, Dominic Maker and his partner in Mount Kimbie, Kai Campos, have played a central role in forging a new form for electronic music. Their influence stretches far beyond the tiny corner of the dance music underground that birthed them. They have repeatedly confounded expectations, transforming themselves from bedroom-studio producers to creators of one of the most fully realized electronic album-length statements of recent years and refining their live show to incorporate a drummer. With their second album, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, finally completed, the perception of Mount Kimbie looks set to expand again.

Cold Spring Fault Less Youth combines the electronic sensibilities of Crooks and Lovers but sees Mount Kimbie moving out of the bedroom and into a professional studio. Informed by their live shows, Dom and Kai have introduced more live instruments to broaden their sound including drums and horns, as well as experimenting with vocals. The duo have undoubtedly grown, they are more experienced, more mature, more self-aware. “Two years is a long time,” says Maker. “Tastes change, what you want out of your life changes, and so on. Naturally, how we want to sound has changed too.” Expanding from the confines of dance music, the resulting album feels looser, richer and more enveloping than the duo’s past work, yet still retains that Mount Kimbie sound.

The new record also features two collaborations with the enigmatic artist King Krule who lends his distinctive, discontented vocals to “You Took Your Time” and “Meter, Pale, Tone.” Having been friends and mutual fans of each other for some time, the collaboration between Mount Kimbie and King Krule came about naturally and they intend to work together again.

Coliseum Announce Tour, New Song “Fuzzbang”

COLISEUM ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR IN SUPPORT OF NEW ALBUM ‘SISTER FAITH’, DROP NEW SINGLE

INDIE-PUNK POWER TRIO TO SUPPORT BARONESS AFTER EAST COAST HEADLINING TOUR

HEAR NEW SINGLE “FUZZBANG”

Following the impending release of their latest and most accomplished album, Sister Faith (due April 30 on Temporary Residence Ltd.), Louisville’s Coliseum will embark on a thorough run of dates across the eastern half of North America, their first tour in nearly two years. Sister Faith’s potent amalgamation of the unchecked energy of punk, the anthemic melodies of post-hardcore, and the caustic sonic textures of noise-rock practically beg to be enjoyed as a visceral experience in the confines of a sweaty rock club. Following a run of headlining dates the trio will join genre-defying quartet Baroness as support on the Georgia band’s first run of dates since their derailing bus accident in the UK last year.

Coliseum’s Ryan Patterson adds, “We’re looking forward to powering up the amps and bringing the new material from Sister Faith to life live and loud, as well as reanimating some older tunes we haven’t played in many years. We’re very happy to have some excellent bands opening for us along the way; from California X, one of our favorite new bands, to Red Hare, the new Dischord band featuring 3/4 of the legendary Swiz,including guitarist Jason Farrell (also of Bluetip and Retisonic) who guests on Sister Faith. It’s also humbling to be joining our good friends in Baroness on their first tour back after their harrowing brush with mortality. Our history together spans the last decade (beginning when they played Coliseum’s first show in a Louisville rental hall in 2004) and we consider them among our closest allies in this journey.”

“[Coliseum] effortlessly move through a range of genres and emotions, touching on early ’90s alternative, late ’90s indie rock, ’80s new wave and timeless Louisville hardcore.” – DECIBEL

ON AN ON North American Spring Tour Dates + Wild Honey Pie Buzzsessions news

Chicago/Minneapolis trio ON AN ON have announced North American spring tour dates with Savoir Adore. The band are fresh off an incredible SXSW debut that saw them touted by Time Magazine as the #1 band to catch, named one of Paste Magazine’s Bands To See, and featured as one of 20 select acts at SXSW in NPR’s All Songs Considered’s festival preview. In May they embark upon their second European tour so far in 2013, with dates across the continent and an appearance at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton, UK (Upcoming tour dates below).

“If I’m being honest, the one SXSW song that I’ve listened to most is ‘Ghosts,’ by the moody, ethereal and distorted rock group ON AN ON. Consider me enamored.” – TIME Magazine

ON AN ON have had much to be excited about since the January 29th release of their well-received debut album Give In on Roll Call Records. In addition to wide ranging critical praise for their album and a quickly growing fan base, they were recently featured as one of iTunes “Best New Artists” and the epic music video for their single “The Hunter” has entered rotation at MTVu and MTV2.

Watch the music video for “The Hunter”

While on tour in February, ON AN ON stopped by Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, NY to record a Buzzsession with The Wild Honey Pie. Beautifully shot and with the impeccable audio of a live studio session recording, the two songs captured for this session are worth a watch, especially for anybody who has yet to catch the band live.

Watch “The Hunter” Buzzsessions from The Wild Honeypie

“From the airy synths on “Ghosts” to the bursting drums on “The Hunter”, there’s a bounding energy backed by electro beats on Give In that’s really difficult to leave alone.” – Consequence of Sound

Diamond Rings remixes with Youngblood Hawke and tour dates with O.M.D.

DIAMOND RINGS SWAPS REMIXES WITH YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE + SPRING & SUMMER TOUR AS SPECIAL GUESTS OF O.M.D.

Diamond Rings and Los Angeles indie alternative quintet, Youngblood Hawke have swapped remixes! Youngblood Hawke added a devilishly danceable energy to the Canadian stalwart’s single “Runaway Love,” while Diamond Rings took on “Last Time,” giving it a fresh and fiery spin. You can stream both of the remixes via soundcloud now, check them out here.

In addition to seven spectacular performances at SXSW (Brooklyn Vegan, FILTER, VEVOtv and Spotify to name a few), Diamond Rings is thrilled to announce an extensive tour as special guests of British New Wave pioneers, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (O.M.D.) to kick off next month.

Last fall, the band made their network TV debut performance performing “I’m Just Me” from their sophomore release Free Dimensional on The Late Show With David Letterman, followed by a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Check out the fantastic new video for the current single “Runaway Love” in addition to an acoustic version of the song which premiered on Rolling Stone.

Free Dimensional (co-produced with the Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor [Bjork, The Killers, Prodigy, UNKLE, Robyn, Austra]) retains the melodicism, clever juxtapositions, and lyrical honesty that garnered kudos for the debut, Special Affections. What’s different this time around is how the songs were conceived and produced. “I wanted the first album to have that homespun quality,” John O explains (whose fashion-forward glam-style was recently compared to Lada Gaga in Entertainment Weekly). Back then, he was wary of too many high-tech bells and whistles. “A big part of being afraid of something is not understanding it,” he admits. “Once I became more comfortable with the medium of electronic music, it was only natural to want to improve.”

Acclaim for Free Dimensional:

“EW Recommends” – Entertainment Weekly

“Diamond Rings Shine” – Billboard

“…it’s a must-download for us.” – MTV.com

“Smokey and glam” – Stereogum.com

“Hook after perfect pop hook” – TinyMixTapes

Low’s “The Invisible Way” Out Today

Sub Pop Records is excited to announce the official release of Low’s new record, The Invisible Way. Out today, March 19, the album is already getting raves from the media around the globe.

NPR hailed, “most of these songs land squarely in that sweet spot where darkness and worry are swathed in pristine beauty,” while Filter said that Low “continues to evolve into a better version of themselves…they maintain the patient emotional tone that has drawn fans to their music over the years while refining their sound into something even deeper.” Meanwhile, overseas, MOJO gave The Invisible Way four stars, called it “one of the band’s strongest albums,” and said, “immersion in The Invisible Way’s melancholia is a sublime pleasure,” and Uncut awarded it “Album of the Month” status, and claimed, “in its own quiet way, it’s as confrontational as anything the Duluth trio has ever done.”

The Invisible Way was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, engineered by Tom Schick and recorded in Wilco’s studio in Chicago, IL, during the fall of 2012. The album finds Low’s majestic melancholy in full bloom yet distinguishes itself with its starker, unadorned soundscapes, layered harmonies and drummer/vocalist extraordinaire Mimi Parker singing lead on five of the 11 songs. The album tackles large issues (“the songs are about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war,
archaeology and love,” says Sparhawk) in a manner that plays a stunning counterpoint to the sublime hush of the music.

On Thursday, March 7, saki, the boutique record store, art gallery and performance space in Chicago, partnered with the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events to present Low and The Invisible Way album producer and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy in their “Off the Record” series. At the event, Low played several stripped down versions of songs off the new record. AV Club was able to capture a few of these songs on video. Watch “Holy Ghost” and “Plastic Cup” from the links provided below.
