Double Dagger

“Pillow Talk”

Double Dagger’s new EP, Masks (TMT News), is available now via Thrill Jockey. As good ol’ Harold Shueberg put it, “The cover art for the release features some conceptual color-shifting limited-edition designs by band members Bruce Willen and Nolan Strals’ studio Post Typography. From the looks of it, this’ll definitely be a release worthy of snagging, if only for the cover art.”

Thomas Fehlmann

“Permanent Touch”

Thomas Fehlmann’s new full-length, Gute Luft, is due today on Kompakt. According to their publicist, the album “is the result of months of work scoring the hit German TV film 24H Berlin, the longest documentary film in history, which features 80 camera teams following the lives of Berliners over a 24-hour period.” If only all albums could be like this.
