We Have Band, drop latest music video to their single ‘Out The Woods’ today, with The Line Of Best Fit.
Deemed ‘Viral-ready’ on todays premiere, this video is one of an addictive nature and sure to have you watching over and over.

Words from the band:

“We stumbled across a YouTube clip of a dance troupe called TOMATO from Chibua, Japan and wanted to work with them to create a dance video for the new single. After weeks of challenging cross continental, cross linguistic, ‘google translate’ correspondence that resulted in the 3 girls being filmed many times, by their manager, performing the routine they had choreographed, a friends edit later of the fairground / diner / fantasy land / mountain top footage and the result is: WHB v TOMATO – OUT THE WOODS!”

‘Out The Woods’ is taken from the bands forthcoming ‘The Woods EP’, which is out soon.

She Crazy – Zompocalypse Now

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

She Crazy - Heads

Since forming from the charred remains of numerous other bands, this Garage Punk trio from the South coast of England have strived to create the kind of loud, hook ­laden garage rock music that sets your pulse racing and your soul ablaze. Purveying gravelly tales of sporadic excess, these three friends have but one goal; to ride out their tunes whilst having as much fun as possible. With tips of the cap to 90s legends Pavement and 00s Hardcore giants The Bronx, this band doesn’t profess prodigal originality or transcendental talent. She Crazy just wanna have a good time.

See She Crazy perform live at The Hope on October 31st. More info here.

Neneh Cherry & RocketNumberNine in session for Resident Advisor

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Visit the RA feature here.

We welcome a true original for the next instalment of RA Sessions.

The Swedish-born artist Neneh Cherry recently returned with Blank Project, her first solo album in 17 years. The record was essentially a collaboration between Cherry, one of pop’s most creative and unpredictable figures, and RocketNumberNine, a sibling duo who push an often frantic form of contemporary jazz and electronica. Four Tet produced the album, which was recorded and mixed in five days. “In terms of its energy and sheer lust for life, it could not sound fresher,” said RA’s Tony Naylor. Cherry’s music has always had this air of vitality—from her hip-hop influenced albums of the late ’80s, to her more recent work with Norwegian/Swedish jazz trio The Thing, an irrepressible spirit has characterised her music. We got to see that spirit first hand when Cherry and RocketNumberNine stopped by London to perform “Weightless,” a track that’s sure to be a highlight of the group’s many worldwide festival appearances this summer.

Hauschka – Agdam

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

German composer, songwriter and experimental musician, Hauschka, is pleased to announce ‘Agdam’, an exclusive new video taken from his critically acclaimed album ‘Abandoned City’ out now on City Slang. The video was directed by Jordan Bruner and Lee Gingold.

Named after a city in Azerbaijan that was emptied and destroyed during 1993′s Nagorno-Karabakh War, the song is among the album’s more lyrical selections, sounding like a classical-minimalist take on Yann Tiersen’s Amélie theme. Awaking the loneliness and unattainable romance of timeless unfamiliar places, cinematic melodies full of resonant overtones blend with bright cheerful keyboard patterns and dark percussive touches.

New album ‘Abandoned City’ marks a highlight in an already stunning catalogue. The album’s expansive tracks celebrate the marriage of neoclassical composition and dance music rhythms. Not only is the music on the album breathtaking, it goes to great lengths in transcending the boundaries of contemporary music.

Hauschka’s music encompasses the beautiful use of prepared piano which is intertwined with his unique twist on neoclassical composition. The piano plays simple, hooky, repeated Kraftwerkian note clusters, propulsive rhythms swish like brushes on a snare drum which combine with bright pizzicato accents that sound like a cross between koto and violin.

An EU tour stretching through Summer and Autumn in support of ‘Abandoned City’ sees Hauschka continue to push the envelope and raise the bar. Powerful in performance, Hauschka’s extraordinary experimentation with classical piano music has seen him gain accolades throughout Europe.

If you haven’t already, order ‘Abandoned City’, available on vinyl, CD, or limited edition CD including special bonus disc ‘I close my eyes’, 10 études played on a standard non-prepared piano, now from our webshop: http://glnk.it/2f9 or digitally via iTunes, http://glnk.it/2fb
