Our Danish mutual friends Oh No Ono and Efterklang have joined in musical union by remixing tracks from each other's 2010 albums. Feel the love! Oh No Ono have turned their hands to 'Modern Drift' from Efterklang's Magic Chairs, while Efterklang have reworked 'Icicles' from Eggs. It's a match made in heaven.
To commemorate this intra-national trade, the bands got together in Copenhagen last week and recorded a video (soundtracked by the original versions of the songs). The video was filmed and edited by Kristian Sidelmann and by Andreas Munksgaard, and sees the two bands engaged in that most Danish of activities, cycling (and tricycling) around their hometown, consumating their friendship with a big splash at the end...
For Oh No Ono's remix of 'Modern Drift' go here.
For Efterklang's remix of 'Icicles' go here.
Don't forget that Oh No Ono have just released a 12"/download single of 'Internet Warrior' featuring remixes by Caribou, Phenomenal Handclap Band, The Depreciation Guild, Shlohmo and Zambri. Find out more here.
In other news, we will be reissuing Efterklang's Leaf releases as special double CD editions. Tripper will be partnered with their debut mini-album Springer, while Parades will now include the long out of print Under Giant Trees EP. Each package will also include two bonus live tracks. The original editions of Parades and Tripper have been out of print for a while, so we expect quite a lot of interest in these. We haven't confirmed release dates yet, but you can pre-order them here.
Efterklang are touring all summer, see their dates here.
Murcof Announces Collaborative UK Tour With Tristano
Published 24 June 2010 by BWL
Fernando Corona (aka Murcof) makes his first UK appearances in well over a year when he returns in October and November for four shows with Luxembourgian (we checked, and that is the right word) virtuoso pianist/composer Francesco Tristano. The pair have collaborated on several occasions since 2007, with both now resident in Barcelona. The music performed will be entirely new and original.
Tristano is a rising star of the classical world. His adventures in electronic music circles began in 2007 with the release of his Not For Piano album, which was produced by Corona, and he has since worked with Carl Craig and Moritz von Oswald. He also performs with Rami Khalifé and Aymeric Westrich as Aufgang.
The London show takes place at the Southbank's Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the London Jazz Festival on November 16.
Thursday 14 October - Howard Assembly Room, LEEDS
Friday 15 October - Le Weekend, STIRLING
Monday 15 November - Band On The Wall, MANCHESTER
Tuesday 16 November - London Jazz Festival, Queen Elizabeth Hall, LONDON
Before these shows in the autumn, Corona makes several appearances in Europe and USA, including collaborations with Erik Truffaz, MM dance company and AntiVJ . See all of his live shows here.
