Watch Frightened Rabbit's set at T In The Park Festival which is held at Strathallan Castle, Perthshire, Scotland. The set included favourites such as 'The Loneliness And The Scream' as well as material from the new album 'Painting Of A Panic Attack'.
Ahead of the release of Sam Coomes’ first ever solo album Bugger Me – due August 19th on Domino Records - he is pleased to share another cut from the record. Listen above.
Coomes is probably best known as half of the long running underground pop duo Quasi, the other half being Janet Weiss, herself better known as the drummer for Sleater-Kinney. Alongside bandmate Janet Weiss, Quasi have released nine albums over the last two decades and toured all over the world. Concurrently, Sam Coomes has played and recorded with the likes of Built to Spill, Elliott Smith and Jandek, worked as a producer and scored numerous soundtracks for underground films and art installations. In short, he is not a newcomer to the scene.
SUPERIMPOSE explores the making of The Range's new album Potential, which exclusively uses the voices of people who posted videos of themselves on YouTube. The documentary sheds light on the unique and varied human stories of the people featured on the album who were completely unknown to The Range (Brooklyn-based electronic producer James Hinton) when originally selected. The documentary travels to off-the-beaten-path neighborhoods of New York City, NY; Kingston, Jamaica and London, England to tell the stories of a wide range of unique people - from Kai, the shy Brooklyn teenager who loves singing Ariana Grande covers; to Damian “Naturaliss” Gordon, the charismatic Jamaican correctional officer by day, dancehall singer by night; to Ophqi, the determined Brixton rapper and dutiful father with a difficult past who is still waiting for his moment to succeed as a musician; and more. Directed by the gifted young filmmaker Daniel Kaufman whose resume includes short films and music videos for DJ Khaled, Waka Flocka Flame, OT Genasis, The Decemberists, and more.
An early version of the documentary screened this March at YouTube’s SXSW showcase in Austin, and this past weekend’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Further screenings of the full version of the film have been announced in New York City and London. See a list of screenings and events below.
Two percussionists, Sven Kacirek and Thomas Klein present Rhythmus I-IV. Although the two musicians each speak their own distinct rhythmic language, with only a few data transfers between Hamburg and Düsseldorf they have conjured up four compact tracks, which despite the instrumental limitations, are surprisingly diverse in terms of sound, groove and depth. Each sent the other a sketch for further development and expanded upon these blueprints. In a final meeting, formal decisions and minimal corrections were made. In addition to drums, cymbals, shakers, xylophone and vibraphone sounds, sonic treatments are clearly audible.
The End of Comedyis the debut album by Drugdealer, a new project conceived and conducted by Los Angeles artist Michael Collins (formerly of Run DMT, Salvia Plath) who guides a group of Angelenos including Ariel Pink and Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood) through a whimsical world informed by Jean Baudrillard, social media perception, Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western vistas and Collins’s endless travels.
The End of Comedy - to be released through Weird World - is a collection of vignettes - lucid, lysergic and organic - featuring homespun explorations of Carole King-esque piano ballads, Bacharach-ian orchestration, the psych-folk of Ultimate Spinach and Hendrickson Road House and even New York City subway jazz, all pulled together by Collins’s deft AOR auteurship and keen sense of humour.
The first track to be shared from the album is ‘Suddenly’ featuring Weyes Blood – watch the video above.
