The Olivia Tremor Control
“North Term Reality”

We love The Olivia Tremor Control at TMT, and we especially love their new track, “North Term Reality,” their first new song in years. It appears on a compilation of experimental/Eureka-ish music called AUX Vol. 2. Check out our recent interview with OTC’s Will Cullen Hart here, and listen to the new OTC track at our big-breasted sister site: http://pitchfork.com/news/40141-listen-olivia-tremor-control-return

Dam-Funk

“Hood Pass Intact” [vocal version]

Here’s a video for the vocal version of Dam-Funk’s “Hood Pass Intact.” This is the second video off Toeachizown, a “modern funk album” in five parts, LAtrik, Fly, Life, Hood, and Sky. As Dam-Funk explains it:

LAtrik is more of my ‘electric style’ (hence the title of this volume) which is influenced by, yet never bitin’, such great artist as Juan Atkins (Cybotron) & Prince to name just a few. It also highlights the more Modern sounds of L.A. based Funk right now with instrumentals like ‘Toeachizown’ & vocal tracks like ‘Mirrors’ which, I feel are distinctly my sound, humbly speaking. I hope U dig it, as this was made 4 U! Stay tuned 4 Volumes: 2. 3, 4, & 5.

Bird By Snow

“Friends In The City”

Fletcher Tucker, a.k.a. Bird By Snow, has been self-releasing home recordings on his own imprint Gnome Life for the past few years, which in internet years translates to roughly 6.5 years. This means that Bird By Snow is a veteran on the web’s hyper-accelerated temporal scale, and his fourth album, Common Wealth — produced by Tim Green (Wolves In The Throne Room, Citay, The Fucking Champs) — proves as much. The album is due in late October, and with beautiful locks like his, why wouldn’t you check it out? I mean, seriously, you can’t get that kind of hair using cheap shit like Pert Plus. I want his hair on my chest.

ICP Orchestra

“Steigerpijp”

A day in the life of European improvisers Instant Composers Pool Orchestra: Han Bennink hollers out the window of a vintage Volvo, Misha Mengelberg (temporarily) befriends a metal pipe, Tristan Honsinger heads straight for the pool hall, Thomas Heberer becomes an ostrich, Mary Oliver pulls a knife from her violin case, Ab Baars is prepped for his gig as a window mannequin, Wolter Wierbos finally catches a ride, Tobias Delius blows tenor on the street, Michael Moore meditates in the middle of the road, Ernst Glerum plays double bass on the back of a naked woman.

“Steigerpijp” is the first video from ICP 049, which is out now on their ICP Records imprint. The tentet will be bringing their pranks to North American streets in Spring 2011, with select dates in Boston, New York, New Haven, Baltimore, and Philadelphia.
