On this epic 19-track release, titled <cite>Nextcentury</cite>, Vektroid invokes her vaporwave skill set, slicing and looping through a sacred tapestry of hyper-edited time-fuckery, slap bass and pitched vocals and janked rhythms simultaneously enlivened and crushed by her violent yet cartoonish&nbsp;cut-ups. </p> <p>No word on when this was recorded.

This is a big thing. It&#8217;s a big thing both in its &#8220;thingness,&#8221; its physicality — and also its immaterial, historical quality. How about that? It&#8217;s a <b>4D</b> thing. <cite>The Photographs of Charles Duvelle</cite> bends time and space more than any other album in history. How cool is that? It&#8217;s like a massive celestial object with its own gravity. It&#8217;s like a quantum string. It&#8217;s like the <em>übermensch</em> thinking they&#8217;re the center of the world. I write to you, reader, across these dual planes in an attempt to reach you! To make you feel! To break the hyper-speed music news cycle that deadens our minds and our senses!! Lo and behold!!! <em>Let me DE-REIFY&nbsp;us!!!!</em></p> <p>OK&#8230;look, I see you leering at me through the screen. I&#8217;d better get to the point: I have to write about the actual album and give you the frickin&#8217; &#8220;press lowdown&#8221; on the music and the formats and the release date and where you can get the thing. If I don&#8217;t, my editor banishes me from the TMT forums, and then I can no longer info-tain TMT&#8217;s audience of millions — and <em>then</em> I just become another Raskolnikov kid bumbling about musicology in a Bushwick coffee shop. AND THEN I have to start my own blog. (Do you dislike me&nbsp;yet?)</p> <p>Well, here goes nothing. Or maybe it will be &#8220;something?&#8221; Or maybe. Or maybe&#8230; it will be more than something. <em>Ahhh-hhhem</em>:</p> <p>Charles Duvelle, an important figure in musicology and a pioneer of field recording. The Frenchman traveled all over the world to document the musical practices of indigenous cultures, releasing hundreds of recordings on his own imprint <a href="https://www.discogs.com/label/57784-Ocora">Disques Ocora</a>. Check the discography for an encyclopedic archive of the world&#8217;s musics. Carl Sagan even included one of Duvelle&#8217;s Benin recordings among the Voyager Golden Records which were sent off to space on the Voyager spacecraft, to be picked up perhaps by E.T., or maybe by the Engineers (<em>if</em> they&#8217;re still out there; I&#8217;m seeing <cite>Alien Covenant</cite> tonight and I&#8217;m&nbsp;psyched).</p> <p>But as the Voyager continues to drift — and as E.T. awaits his first taste of Duvelle&#8217;s lovely ear for human sound-making — those of us still on earth just get more and more of it! The Sublime Frequencies label has put together a big ol&#8217; bundled package that includes a 2xCD compilation of unreleased and extended recordings from Africa and Asia and an art book showing off 246 of Duvelle&#8217;s field photographs, as well as a lengthy interview conducted by Sublime Frequencies co-founder Hisham Mayet. The book is a luxurious thing, &#8220;printed on 170-GSM LumiSilk matte art paper and bound in gray buckram with gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine,&#8221; paying tribute to Ocora&#8217;s great design work. Check out all the info, including full press release, bundle contents, and track samples, through US distributor <a href="http://www.forcedexposure.com/Catalog/duvelle-and-hisham-mayet-charles-the-photographs-of-charles-duvelle-2cd-book/SF.110CD.html">Forced Exposure</a>.

But &#8220;seminal&#8221; doesn&#8217;t even <em>begin</em> to describe Morton Subotnick&#8217;s caliber as a pioneering composer of electronic music; nor does it seem to do justice to the paramount influence of his 1967 full-length LP <cite>Silver Apples of the Moon</cite>. </p> <p>Made with the use of the original <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buchla_Electronic_Musical_Instruments">Buchla</a> synthesizer (whose very creation was, in fact, <a href="https://youtu.be/CG48Y5dL9J8">commissioned by Subotnick</a>), this pioneering and otherworldly piece was created specifically for a release on Nonesuch Records as &#8220;a musical composition for which the performance was the recording&#8221; (Allmusic.com). But for all its historically significant <a href="http://www.allmusic.com/composition/silver-apples-of-the-moon-mc0002418911">backstory</a> — and <em>despite</em> its rigorously experimental nature — <cite>Silver Apples of the Moon</cite> is also simply a gorgeous record to listen&nbsp;to.</p> <p>Did I say 1967? Yes, it&#8217;s been exactly fifty years since the release of the album, and Subotnick is celebrating the anniversary in several ways. First, the composer has started an <a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/subotnick-portrait-of-an-electronic-music-pioneer#/">Indiegogo campaign</a> to fund a documentary film about his life, produced by the <a href="http://www.idreamofwires.org/"><cite>I Dream of Wires</cite></a> team <a href="http://www.waveshapermedia.com/">Waveshaper Media</a> and featuring &#8220;a series of candid interviews and illuminating conversations with key figures from [Subotnick&#8217;s] past and present.&#8221; Secondly, the contributor perks for the campaign include black, orange, red, and blue anniversary vinyl represses of <cite>Silver Apples of the Moon</cite>, as well as a cassette version (for the first time since the original&nbsp;release)!</p> <p>Finally, &#8220;the &#8216;founding father&#8217; of electronica&#8221; is set to perform at New York&#8217;s Lincoln Center in July and premiere a new &#8220;multi-media tone poem for voice, electronic sound, and live imagery,&#8221; titled &#8220;Crowds and Power.&#8221; Tickets for that epic-sounding new work can be purchased <a href="http://www.lincolncenter.org/lc-festival/show/subotnick">here</a>.</p> <p>Once again, head over to Subotnick&#8217;s <a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/subotnick-portrait-of-an-electronic-music-pioneer#/">Indiegogo site</a> now for more details and/or to lend your support to the project, and watch the official trailer of the documentary&nbsp;below:</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Veab3zDZLhA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> Morton Subotnick Nonesuch Wed, 24 May 2017 14:04:18 +0000 Patryk Mrozek 157835 at https://www.tinymixtapes.com It’s May and Dent May has a new album coming out in a month that is decidedly not May 2017-05-23T16:03:31-04:00 https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/dent-may-announces-new-album-across-multiverse-duets-frankie-cosmos-title-track?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tmt Music <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1705/dent-may.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-Article_Width" width="800" height="533" /> <p>Even though <em>BIG CALENDAR</em> forces us to believe that spring begins in March, it&#8217;s not until the April showers bring May flowers that the season synonymous with rebirth <em>truly</em> starts. In May, you can finally (maybe) start going outside without a jacket again, baseball season really gets going, and those Justin Timberlake <a href="http://popcrush.com/files/2016/04/rs_600x796-150430104629-CD20z_PVIAAfh6j.jpg">memes</a> that <em>never</em> get old start showing up all over our social media feeds. Yes, there&#8217;s just something special about May and the warmth it brings into our&nbsp;lives. </p> <p>That&#8217;s why it feels <em>so</em> right that Dent May — <em>in</em>the month of May — has announced that his new album is coming out in&#8230; <strong><em>August</em></strong>&#8230;wait what? Feels like there was a <em>pretty</em> cohesive &#8220;May&#8221; theme going on in these first two paragraphs that just got straight-up obliterated! Like, it really seemed we were headed in a &#8220;Hey, it&#8217;s May, here&#8217;s the new Dent May album coming out in May, it&#8217;s a concept album about May that talks up all the great things about May,&#8221; direction,&nbsp;but&#8230; </p> <p>Well at any rate, yes, the latest from Dent May, entitled <cite>Across The Multiverse</cite>, is due for release on August 18 via Carpark&nbsp;Records. </p> <p>It&#8217;s rather fitting that Dent May fancies himself the combination of a &#8220;hotel bar lounge singer and aspiring daytime TV talk show host,&#8221; because the songs on <cite>Across The Multiverse</cite> really do sound like they&#8217;d be at home in either a hotel bar lounge or on a daytime TV talk show. Or a discotheque, really. Ooh, or a roller rink! If <cite>Across The Multiverse</cite> doesn&#8217;t single-handedly revive America&#8217;s collective interest in roller rink culture, I don&#8217;t know <em>what</em>&nbsp;will.</p> <p>Seriously. Take a listen to the album&#8217;s title track (featuring Frankie Cosmos) below, and <em>tell me honestly</em> that you can&#8217;t see yourself busting some sweet, highly advanced, roller skate-based dance moves to it.

Danish electronic label Posh Isolation is set to put out their 200th release soon! And fittingly enough, it comes in the form of the fourth LP from Damien Dubrovnik. Comprised of label founders Loke Rahbek (a.k.a. Croatian Amor) and Christian Stadsgaard, the duo were also the <em>very first</em> act to release a record on the now eight-year old label. &#8220;Without Damien Dubrovnik there would most likely have been no Posh Isolation, and vice versa.&#8221; Awww.&nbsp;&lt;3</p> <p>Titled <cite>Great Many Arrows</cite>, the album will be out on June 30. The project&#8217;s first since 2015, it trades in some of their noisy industrial vistas for gentle touches of &#8220;organs, cellos, violas, wind and other acoustic instruments,&#8221; and sets them against a thick synthesized background. According to the label, &#8220;The strength of the recording lies here in the interaction between the melodic, acoustic instrumentation and the bulldozing&nbsp;electronics.&#8221; </p> <p>The first cut of the album, six-minute-long &#8220;Arrow 5,&#8221; was released alongside the announcement.

Long Beach rapper and bane of upper-middle-class Christian moms everywhere Vince Staples has finally dropped <em>some</em> of the details regarding his new album and shared a new&nbsp;song. </p> <p>The album is called <cite>Big Fish Theory</cite>, and it’s out June 23 via Def Jam/ARTium. As you can see above, its accompanying <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BUFtpYXAHjb/?taken-by=vincestaples&amp;hl=en">artwork</a> features what is ostensibly a normal-sized fish in a very small bowl. This is called&nbsp;&#8220;symbolism.&#8221;</p> <p>And while I would ordinarily just assume that something called <cite>Big Fish Theory</cite> is some weird, off-brand cross-promotion between <cite>The Big Bang Theory</cite> and the upcoming <cite>Pirates of the Caribbean</cite> movie, Staples&#8217; record is actually the hotly anticipated follow-up to the previously hotly anticipated <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/vince-staples-announces-next-weeks-release-date-new-ep"><cite>Prima Donna</cite></a> EP from last year, which followed 2015’s hotly acclaimed LP <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/music-review/vince-staples-summertime-06"><cite>Summertime ‘06</cite></a>. Vince previously embarked on a worldwide voyage he appropriately called The Life Aquatic Tour—because he <em>really hates</em> mixing metaphors—but he still has plenty of festival dates lined-up through summertime&nbsp;‘17.</p> <p>While no official tracklisting has &#8220;surfaced,&#8221; the rapper just premiered the music video for a new track from the album called “Big Fish,” which features open ocean, a shipwreck, and sharks (<em>godDAMN</em>, his theming is on-point). Watch it below.

And, similar to the way that the band awesomely <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/swans-be-joined-former-member-jarboe-atlanta-show">brought in</a> former member Jarboe as a righteous homage to/celebration of the latest Swans incarnation, the three final shows — which are all taking place at Brooklyn&#8217;s Warsaw venue — will also feature three purposefully chosen guest musicians. The lovingly abrasive cellist Okkyung Lee will also be reviving her support role for the August shows, while Baby Dee will rejoin shortly&nbsp;thereafter.</p> <p>Those three final guests, though? Well, those would be Carla Bozulich on November 2, Swedish singer/songwriter Anna Von Hausswolff on November 3, and the somewhat contrasting ADULT. on November&nbsp;4. </p> <p>Also worth noting is the 2xCD live album <cite><a href="https://younggodrecords.com/products/deliquescence">Deliquescence</a></cite>, which was released just a few days ago as a tangible recollection of these final tour dates. Check out the complete list of final, <em>final</em>, FINAL dates below, after you read Gira&#8217;s own vibrant feedback regarding the band and these last seven&nbsp;years:</p> <blockquote><p>Much love to these intrepid explorers of sonic truth!

Instead, for the relaunch of <cite>Twin Peaks</cite>, we were treated to new characters, new locations, horrifying mutilation, and a whole lot of The Red Room. It was incredibly dark. It was unnervingly quiet. It was the Lynch known to anyone who has followed his trajectory since <cite>Twin Peaks</cite> originally aired in the 1990s, the Lynch whose four key episodes from a 22-episode season two were captivating enough to make fans overlook the otherwise flailing, misguided&nbsp;series.</p> <p>Despite its bold use of silence, <cite>Twin Peaks: The Return</cite> is already centering its televisual landscape around its music. To that end, two soundtracks will be released, <cite>Twin Peaks (Music From the Limited Event Series)</cite> and <cite>Twin Peaks (Limited Event Series Original Soundtrack)</cite>. The former will feature Angelo Badalamenti&#8217;s score, while the latter will collect already-used songs by Chromatics, Au Revoir Simone, and The Cactus Blossoms, as well as perhaps tracks from other previously announced musicians, such as Julee Cruise, Eddie Vedder, Sky Ferreira, Sharon Van Etten, and&nbsp;more.</p> <p>Both soundtracks are out September 8 via Rhino. Listen to Chromatics&#8217; &#8220;Shadow&#8221; below (which ended part 2 in the new series), and revisit our <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/series/twin-peaks-week">Twin Peaks Week</a>&nbsp;series. </p> <p>Now excuse me while I taste this Indica-baked banana bread with infused spreadable jam, which is ideal for creative sojourns of a solitary nature.
