One third of Test Icicles, Sam Mehran, releases a collection of works. Whilst his former band mates (Rory Atwell andDev Hynes) have been producing and working on counteless high-profile side projects, we've been privately enjoying Sam Mehran's intrepid foray into his alter ego Outer Limitz notably with the song I Kontakt. Now dropping the Z in favour of an S, Sam launches a full public assault by consolidating his Singles, Demos & Rarities into one edition for you all to enjoy as well.
'I feel like I have many stories ahead of me. Over the past few years I've learnt that people are people and music is music and I can't really judge or say I believe deep down that one this is genuinely better than another, Life is just so crazy. I used to think I was an alien, but Earth has been such an epic experience that I'm now glad to call it home. But who knows, maybe one day I'll leave and realize that home was some place else.'Sam Mehran
This compilation represents the perfect portal into a special artistic imagination, a thrilling outsider-art artefact and even more reason for excitement regarding whatever Mehran dreams up next.
Upcoming gigs: 14th March - The Islington, Angel w/ Bad For Lazarus 4th April - headlining JOYFEST Alldayer, The Windmill, Brixton 16th May - Bar Rogue @ Alternative Escape, Brighton w/ Asylums, Tuff Love
Sam Dust, AKA LA Priest has shared the video for “Oino”, the previously-revealed first track from the artist’s new project for Domino. Watch above.
The video was shot by Dust’s brother, director Isaac Eastgate, during the pair’s travels recently and was “inspired by a story our grandad told us about a man imprisoned in the desert who escapes by singing to a wizard”, according to the artist.
New Build recorded their new album 'Pour It On' at their own Lanark Studios in Shoreditch and Club Ralph in West London with Mark Ralph (Franz Ferdinand, Clean Bandit), the 10-track self-produced album follows their 2012 debut Yesterday Was Lived And Lost.
An unashamedly electronic collection, and featuring the vocals of Al Doyle (Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem) alongside Felix Martin (Hot Chip) and Tom Hopkins, Pour It On is a cohesive and assured record of rich, monolithic dance music. With shades of The Human League, textures reminiscent of Caribou or Dan Avery and vocal turns right out of Richard Thompson’s songbook, it explores the outer limits of the pop-song-structure.
An anthemic set of bold statements, Pour It On lyrically addresses very human concerns; broken lives, frustration, fear & confusion, whilst simultaneously celebrating the resistance of the human spirit.
'Pour It On' was released via Sunday Best Recordings on 17th October 2014.
