Flying Lotus album details (ft. Thom Yorke + Jonny Greenwood), fall tour, book club, quilting circle http://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/news-12-07-flying-lotus.jpg

You may have heard about Flying Lotus’ upcoming record and featured collaboration with Thom Yorke, but that was just a teaser to the deluge of information that was subsequently released regarding the L.A.-based producer’s upcoming effort. Consequence of Sound confirms that the record, titled Until the Quiet Comes will be released October 2 courtesy of Warp Records, and will include a track, “Electric Candyman,” featuring Thom Yorke.

New to the mix are Erykah Badu, Niki Randa, and Thundercat, along with frequent Flying Lotus collaborator Laura Darlington. Mr. Ellison also mentioned today that Jonny Greenwood will show up at some point. With a lineup like that, I don’t think the quiet will ever come [rimshot]! Given Badu’s recent collaboration with The Flaming Lips, here’s hoping this outing will deliver similarly awesome goods (and not result in a subsequent public falling out).

Flying Lotus has also announced fall tour dates, with a few stops in major metropolitan areas (and Salt Lake City) on this side of the pond followed by a trek through Western Europe. While it’s unlikely that Yorke or Badu sightings will take place at these shows, Flying Lotus’ unique brand of glitch-hop and overall DJ skillz should be motivation enough to check him out live.

Dead Oceans launches subscription service, because you ain’t cool unless you launch a subscription service

Ah, another day, another record label decides to offer a subscription service through drip.fm. As we reported here and here, Ghostly International and Domino recently began their own subscription services, and now, Bloomington, IN/Austin, TX-based label Dead Oceans is joining in on the trend — drawn to it in a manner similar to how a primary school student might be peer pressured into huffing glue for the first time. Who knows what kind of damage it’ll do in the long term, but it sure gives the brain a pleasurable tingle initially.

Just in case you’re unfamiliar with Dead Oceans, their roster includes or has included fairly well-known outfits such as Akron/Family, The Tallest Man on Earth, A Place to Bury Strangers, Frog Eyes, and Califone. The details of their subscription service (Dead Oceans Sounds) are as follows: for 15 bucks a month, you’ll receive every new Dead Oceans release, either as a part of, or in addition to, the at least two albums (new or old) that they send you every month. The music is delivered straight to your email inbox in both WAV and 320 kbps MP3 formats. Upon subscribing, fans will “immediately” receive three full-length albums: The Tallest Man on Earth’s There’s No Leaving Now and A Place to Bury Strangers’ Worship, both of which were released last month, and Gauntlet Hair’s self-titled debut from last year.

Additionally, the folks at Dead Oceans promise a whole bunch of non-digital surprises, such as spots on the guest list for shows, vinyl, CDs, posters, and t-shirts “delivered straight to your door.” And speaking of t-shirts, the first 50 subscribers will be entered to win a “free” Dead Oceans t-shirt; only, it’s not actually free, since you’re still paying for the subscription, but that’s just me being a rational stick-in-the-mud. I’m deeply curious to see if this whole subscription model will still be around a year from now.

The Raveonettes excite and bum you out by announcing a new album, tour

The small Scandinavian nation of Denmark has given the world so much. Hans Christian Andersen. Fine mid-century teak furniture. The eponymous pastry. And lest we forget, 10 years ago Denmark gave us scuzzy throwback duo The Raveonettes. Ten years, can you believe it? Over the course of Sune Rose Wagner and Sharon Foo’s rockin’ decade together, the noise-lovin’ Danes have traversed a great musical land, covering ground from fuzzed-out distortion and lyrics dealing with lust, death, and other great topics from the underbelly of 1950s/1960s/surely not nooooooooow America to yearning doo wop-style harmonies and guest spots from Suicide’s Martin Rev and The Ronette’s Ronnie Specter. And now The Raveonettes are about to cross an even greater musical frontier: namely, the divide between bands that use pianos in their songs and bands that don’t. That’s right — there’s a piano in the mix on the band’s upcoming full-length, Observator, and take it from me, sonny, in typical Raveonettes fashion, she ain’t a happy piany.

So what inspired the band’s new direction? According to Wagner, he and Foo were compelled by the siren call of Los Angeles. After throwing out his back and generally feeling like s%^&, Wagner decided it was time to go West, to find the California of easy livin’ and The Doors. But instead, he says, “What I found however was quite the opposite. I found dread and despair in LA, a wicked loneliness that only furthered my intake of substances. I couldn’t focus and inspiration was fleeting or mostly absent.” (Apparently Wagner did not watch Mulholland Drive before packing up the U-Haul.) Instead of creating a super dirty Beach Boys album or whatever the band’s intention was, Wagner decided to just dive into the stories of the people he met in both California and New York, where the band is based, and start writing. Observator is the result of those songs. The album was recorded at Sunset Sound Studios in L.A. with Richard Gottehrer, who also worked on the band’s Pretty in Black. (Dude’s also a legend from having worked with Blondie, The Go-Gos, and Richard Hell.) Observator will bum you out — piano style! — when it’s released via Vice on September 11. Until then, The Raveonettes have a few shows in Chicago this month. Once the album is out, the band plans on rockin’ a full-scale US (with a brief dip into Canada) tour.

09.21.12 - Portland, OR - Hawthorne Theatre
09.22.12 - Seattle, WA- Neumo’s
09.23.12 - Vancouver, BC - Venue

Thom Yorke’s new band to release 12-inch single, so I’m pretty sure Radiohead are definitely breaking up

RADIOHEAD ARE BREAKING UP

Well, I mean, maybe. Actually, probably not. Actually, almost certainly not. Radiohead aren’t breaking up. But Thom Yorke’s other band, Atoms for Peace, are putting out a single. Clearly, Thom Yorke has no more time for Radiohead, because he is definitely dedicating all his time to putting out this single. So… RADIOHEAD ARE BREAKING UP, ALL THE SIGNS ARE POINTING THAT WAY.

But they’re probably not. Atoms for Peace are absolutely putting out that single, though. The release finds the band remixing their own track “Other Side” on the B-side. Hold up, what’s on the A-side then? Could it be a Radiohead song? No, Radiohead is absolutely no longer a band. Stillwater, Oklahoma’s Other Lives, however, are a band. Since they’re a band and Radiohead probably isn’t a band anymore, it only makes sense for Atoms for Peace to remix Other Lives’ “Tamer Animals” on the A-side. You can hear that remix over at Pitchfork, where you can also read some Radiohead reviews and reminisce about their time as a band.

On August 6, Modeselektor’s Monkeytown label will put out this Atoms for Peace single. If Radiohead were still a band, they’d probably put out a single from them, too. But that cannot be, because Radiohead are not a band. Goodbye, Radiohead.

Fine, Radiohead are still a band.

RIP: İlhan Mimaroğlu, musique concrète composer and musician

From Turkish Journal:

Famous Turkish musician and composer and member of the Advisory Board of Moon and Stars Project İlhan Mimaroğlu died.

The 86 year-old musician, internationally known for his compositions in which he utilized electronics, was equally at home producing records for major popular and jazz artists, including many who were signed to Atlantic Records.

As an executive and in-house producer for Atlantic he was responsible for recordings of Charles Mingus, Modern Jazz Quartet, John Cage, Eric Salzman, Luciano Berio, Idil Biret, Meral Güneyman, Vladimir Ussachevsky. Janis Siegel, and many others. He also collaborated with Jean DuBuffet on Coucou Bazar at the Guggenheim museum. His own label, Finnadar, that specialized in contemporary works, was highly respected for its innovative and important recordings. Mr. Mimaroğlu both studied and taught at Columbia University, was active in the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center and has lectured and written widely on music.

In 2008 Moon and Stars Project of The American Turkish Society co-sponsored a tribute to the life and work of İlhan Mimaroğlu by concert pianist Meral Güneyman. Our deepest condolences go out to his beloved wife Güngör Mimaroğlu and his family and friends.
