The Comet Is Coming tour
Published 7 March 2017 by DM

The Comet Is Coming. The Comet will once again be visible in Europe in March and May. Services will become less frequent in the second half of the year as the prophets Betamax Killer, Danalogue The Conqueror and King Shabaka work on a new testament.

To get you in the mood for these magnificent celestial events, watch video footage of forthcoming release ‘March Of The Rising Sun’ live from Chatsworth Road Festival courtesy of the great astronomers TENENTNET.

The entire performance will be streaming on the TENENTNET Facebook from 8pm on Thursday March 23rd. It includes a fire and brimstone collaboration with poet Joshua Idehen.

Parisian label Nyami Nyami have unearthed an ancient track from Zimbabwe called ‘Baleka’ which has been touched by Comet magic. Listen closely.

Introducing Snapped Ankles
Published 17 March 2017 by DM

They came from the trees.

Now settled in fertile east London, Snapped Ankles maintain the feral energy of the forest. Fight or flight. Primal motorik rhythms, the rush of white noise and post-punk angles; an aural onslaught played out on homemade log synths, electrified guitars and sticks beating hell on taut animal skin.

Snapped Ankles have flourished in the sub-tropical climes of warehouse and squat parties, moving onto performance art collaborations with filmmakers and shows in unlikely locations such as barber shops, games arcades and the forests they once called home. They plough a singular furrow at improbable angles. The woodwose have discovered electricity and they’re not afraid to use it.

Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, ‘I Want My Minutes Back’.

It is available to download for free in exchange for an email address.

There is a video. FFO: Spaghetti and sausages

One day my log will have something to say about this.

Record Store Day 2017
Published 21 March 2017 by THD

Do we have any records for Record Store Day? Do we ever! Are you paying attention? We have three classic Colleen albums, one of which has never been released on vinyl, and brand new music in the form of an EP from The Comet Is Coming.

The Comet Is Coming - Death To The Planet

Brand new 4-track EP, the follow-up to the Mercury Prize nominated Channel The Spirits. Darkness and light. The party to end all parties. Death To The Planet! Long live the planet! On “Comet Fire” orange vinyl with download code. Limited to 700 copies for the universe.

Colleen - Colleen Et Les Boîtes À Musique

This is the first time this mini-album of music box recordings has been pressed to vinyl. Originally released in 2006, it started life as a commission by the Atelier de Création Radiophonique (part of French national radio station France Culture). It features brand new artwork by long term collaborator Iker Spozio. On silver vinyl with a download code. Limited to 750 copies.

Colleen - The Golden Morning Breaks

Vinyl reissue of long out of print and sought after second album by Colleen. From 2005, The Golden Morning Breaks draws on a rich palette of live instrumentation, marking a significant leap from the sample-driven sound of Colleen’s debut album. On gold vinyl with a download code. Limited to 750 copies.

Colleen - Les Ondes Silencieuses

Colleen's final release for The Leaf Label, released a decade ago. Unavailable on vinyl for several years, Les Ondes Silencieuses utilises the rare stringed instrument the viola de gamba, acting as the hub to this highly personal, baroque-influenced album, which also features spinet, clarinet and classical guitar. On clear vinyl in gatefold sleeve with download code. Limited to 750 copies.

All of our Record Store Day have been pressed by Optimal in Germany, for the highest quality and fidelity. Record Store Day is on 22 April. Happy hunting.

Matthew Bourne - Candela (for Sascha Heeney)
Published 27 March 2017 by DM

After last year’s celebrated moogmemory project, Matthew Bourne returns to the piano for breathtaking new track ‘Candela (for Sascha Heeney)’. In tribute to new love, this is the first single from Bourne’s forthcoming album, to be released this summer.

Where Bourne’s previous work would often seek to challenge, this is a deep meditation in texture and melody: skeletal piano motifs buoyed on a bed of strings. There is an emotional directness and vulnerability that Bourne has only ever hinted at. When taken in the context of his back catalogue, this unadorned simplicity is a bold and challenging step to make, and all the more devastating for it.

'Candela (for Sascha Heeney)' is available to download for free from Bourne's Bandcamp in exchange for an email address.

Bourne is playing a moogmemory show tonight (March 27th) at The Cockpit Theatre, London.

You'll find him collaborating with east London grime artist Trim as part of Piano Day at London’s Union Chapel on Wednesday March 29th.

On Saturday May 6th, Bourne will join Franck Vigroux and Antoine Schmitt for a rare performance of 2014’s Kraftwerk-inspired Radioland project at the Jazz Café. | Twitter | Facebook |
