Well&#8230;&#8221;<em>new</em>.&#8221; </p> <p>Like <em>Disney</em> (obviously one of her main artistic inspirations), Olsen has just &#8220;opened up the vault&#8221; to share a collection of archival b-sides, rarities and demos. But, <em>unlike</em> cruel, unforgiving <em>Disney</em> (<b>maybe <em>not</em></b> one of her main artistic inspirations?), she won&#8217;t be offering these songs &#8220;for a limited time only&#8221; before shutting them away forever and rubbing our noses in it. Nope, all of these songs will find a permanent, forever-home as a part of <cite>Phases</cite>, out November 11 via&nbsp;Jagjaguwar.</p> <p>Throughout her career, Angel Olsen hasn&#8217;t stayed in one particular lane with her sound, ranging from the sparse, lo-fi folk of her 2010 debut EP <cite>Strange Cacti</cite>, to the electric, hi-def rock &#8216;n&#8217; roll of last year&#8217;s <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/music-review/angel-olsen-my-woman"><cite>MY WOMAN</cite></a>, and everywhere in between. For fans and newbies alike, <cite>Phases</cite> will show off both Olsen&#8217;s range, how far she has come, and (again, not unlike <em>Disney</em>) how <em>damn good</em> she is at writing&nbsp;songs.</p> <p>Listen to two of the phases from <cite>Phases</cite> down below. The seven-minute sprawling &#8220;Special&#8221; is a previously unreleased song from the <cite>MY WOMAN</cite> sessions, while the Orbison-esque &#8220;Fly On Your Wall&#8221; was released a part of the <cite>Our First 100 Days</cite> series from earlier this year. Keep those eyes peeled while you&#8217;re down there for the full <cite>Phases</cite> track listing, as well as all of Angel Olsen&#8217;s upcoming tour dates for the fall.

Some musical artists — like electro-pop excitement-seekers <a href="http://www.theblow.org/">The Blow</a> — have the knack of wringing more genuine emotionally-charged goodies out of music + words than most. Bold souls who want more will be ecstatic to hear that the band&#8217;s new self-released album is out <a href="https://twitter.com/thebl0w">TODAY!</a></p> <p><cite>Brand New Abyss</cite> is <a href="http://www.khaelamaricich.com/">Khaela Maricich’s and <a href="http://www.melissadyne.com/">Melissa Dyne’s</a> latest dancefloor call-to-arms, and it is a more hands-on affair than previous releases — <em>literally</em>, because this time around, the duo have built a physical system of modular synths for their sounds rather than constructing sample-based songs. We asked the duo about the change in sound development and its adaptability to&nbsp;performance. </a></p> <blockquote><p>We’ve spent so much time building this rig that we can use to produce electronic music in a live setting with just the two of us, it’s taken years figure out how to create sounds from scratch and put them all together and basically to make a little home for ourselves out of frequency. When we get ourselves into a groove it feels like we are taking our sound-house around with us, setting it up on each stage we play on, leaning back and stretching out and making ourselves comfortable with the audiences in a deeper way than we’ve either ever really done before. The system is kind of a beast to carry around; it’s a fair number of cases to load in and out every night, so this deeper comfort makes it all really worth&nbsp;it!</p></blockquote> <p>As the leading Marxist/Freudian theorist Edmund Wilson once quipped, “There is nothing more demoralizing than a small but adequate income.” To make sure Maricich and Dyne don’t fall into this discouraging wage bracket, get over to <a href="http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/theblow">PledgeMusic</a> and pick up a copy of <cite>Brand New Abyss</cite> — either as a standalone CD/DL/LP or as part of an impressive amount of charming packages. Singles have been trickling out over the past couple of months, including the NPR-premiered ear-rally <a href="http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2017/07/11/536483405/new-mix-music-from-the-big-sick-rhye-protomartyr-more?utm_source=twitter.com&amp;utm_medium=social&amp;utm_campaign=nprmusic&amp;utm_term=music&amp;utm_content=20170711">“Get Up,”</a> the Bust-premiere of <a href="http://bust.com/music/193397-the-blow-releases-video-the-woman-you-want-her-to-be-bust-premiere-3.html">“The Woman You Want Her to Be,”</a> and the refined intensity of “Think About Me,&#8221; viewable down&nbsp;below.</p> <p>“America’s greatest reader” Edmund Wilson once claimed, “What a gulf between the self which experiences and the self which describes experience.” Bridge this experience gulf within yourself by witnessing the striking spectacle of <a href="https://www.facebook.com/thebl0w">The Blow</a> live. All shows from October 26 onward are with the red-hot <a href="http://www.iwannadestroy.com/">EMA</a>, who released her compelling <cite>Exile in the Outer Ring</cite> album last month. To hammer the point home: these upcoming shows will be <em>deadly fun</em>, and YES you should be going to at least one of them. Rightfully so, The Blow is pumped for the tour and playing with&nbsp;EMA: </p> <blockquote><p>We are so excited about the tour. We are calling it the ‘Power Convergence’ tour &#8212; we’ve found a kindred punk spirit in EMA, she seems equally fed up with the current B.S. and ready to address it with her special mid-western cool-stare perspective, and we are really happy to be merging forces with her. We in fact picked special local acts in every city to help us converge even more powers, and the line-up of performers is really inspiring. There are so many people out there doing such cool&nbsp;stuff.</p></blockquote> <p>Lastly, all thoughts of the dreamy Edmund Wilson aside, The Blow is <em>never</em> just about hype-cycle trivialities like “new albums” and “new tours.” All music fans should do themselves a huge favor and take some time to browse around <a href="http://womanproducer.com/">Woman Producer</a>, a site run by the act that features great vintage pics of, well, woman producers (it is the name of the site!), complete with an exhaustive list of profile links. It also contains infos on past panel discussion events. About the site, the groop&nbsp;affirms,</p> <blockquote><p>We designed it with the hope that people could get lost in the depth of information there is out there about women/trans/non-binary sound makers. Yes, we would love to do more events to bring people together around the topic of shredding apart the bored old gender expectations. It seems like we should be so far beyond having to make distinctions around gender, like women being producers really shouldn’t be any kind of revolutionary, but apparently, it’s still not seen as totally commonplace, so there’s still a lot to talk about and&nbsp;discover.</p></blockquote> <p>Alright, enough talk. It&#8217;s time to &#8220;get up&#8221; and <em>get at</em> all-things-Blow! Because, as serial adulterer and piss-poor drunk Edmund Wilson once said, “Oh! Who gives a fuck about Edmund&nbsp;Wilson!”</p> <p><iframe width="100%" height="460" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yIPpSD3wJE4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1709/brandnewabysscover.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p><cite>Brand New Abyss</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

We’re talking Julianna Barwick, Dan Deacon, Jarvis Cocker, and Kevin Shields alongside some of the most <em>dangerous</em> musical minds Iceland has to offer, including Sin Fang, Sóley <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Örvar Smárason, JFDR, Hugar, and Sigur Rós themselves, who will be performing <em>four shows</em> over the course of the festival like they’re the goddamn String Cheese Incident or something. <em>What terror hast thou wrought,&nbsp;Jónsi?!</em></p> <p>Norður og Niður will take place from December 27–30 in the new cultural capital of Earth: Reykjavík. If you’re planning to jump on the Icelandic imperial bandwagon (which I assume is more of a fjord-traversing schooner), you can check out a <a href="https://open.spotify.com/user/thesigurros/playlist/1ZQQxIkzRp4UJ2agY16sjL">Spotify playlist</a> created in honor of the auspicious coup and buy tickets to the specific Sigur Rós shows now at the <a href="https://nordurognidur.is/">festival&#8217;s website</a>, thereby granting yourself early-access to Norður og Niður 4-day passes, which are <em>actually</em> on sale September 28. I gotta say, though: if the whole epoch of the Modern Icelandic Empire is held down by this much red tape, it’s gonna get <em>real</em> irritating <em>real</em> fast.&nbsp;:-/</p> <p><iframe width="100%" height="460" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Jolx3efYDks" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> Dan Deacon Jarvis Cocker Julianna Barwick Kevin Shields Sigur Rós Thu, 21 Sep 2017 19:51:59 +0000 Colin Fitzgerald 159498 at https://www.tinymixtapes.com Ambient composer Gregg Kowalsky goes all Hollywood on us with L’Orange, L’Orange, his first new solo album in eight years 2017-09-21T13:36:28-04:00 https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/ambient-composer-gregg-kowalsky-announces-lorange-lorange-his-first-new-solo-album-eight-years?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tmt Music <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1709/tumblr_nc46qlaj401trcq8bo4_r2_1280.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-Article_Width" width="896" height="597" /> <p>While it&#8217;s still probably a safe bet to say it won&#8217;t be getting into any pop chart wars with the Red Hot Chili Peppers or anything, electroacoustic composer Gregg Kowalsky&#8217;s just-announced new album, <cite>L&#8217;Orange, L&#8217;Orange</cite>, sure sounds pretty&nbsp;&#8220;L.A.&#8221;</p> <p>The Miami-born Kowalsky moved to the City of Angels after years spent in cold, dark, distant Oakland — and evidently, his new home&#8217;s weather soaked into his creative process (and even into the album&#8217;s sun-soaked title). &#8220;That&#8217;s the color I started to hear when I mixed these tracks,&#8221; Kowalsky says. &#8220;Mixing when it&#8217;s sunny out every day affects you.&#8221; His approach on the album (his first solo record in eight years) differs from the complex, often installation-based composition of much of his previous work, including his <cite>Tape Chants</cite> series, the first recorded version of which were released in 2009. The &#8220;chants&#8221; were an exploration of individual performance spaces that involved setting up cassette players loaded with sine wave tape loops throughout specific locations (for example, a WWII military bunker) and recording the playback for a sonic&nbsp;document.</p> <p><cite>L&#8217;Orange, L&#8217;Orange</cite>, by contrast, seems to be a slightly warmer and more lighthearted affair. For instance, it includes tracks with names like &#8220;Maliblue Dream Sequence&#8221; and &#8220;Tonal Bath for Bubbles,&#8221; and it was composed on using analog synthesizers and mixed on a laptop. &#8220;I just wanted to make music to make music, and not think as much about concepts and making the process part of the composition,&#8221; he says. &#8220;I wanted it to feel like a human made&nbsp;it.&#8221;</p> <p><cite>L&#8217;Orange, L&#8217;Orange</cite> is out November 10 on Mexican Summer — which has played host to &#8220;very-very L.A.&#8221; artists like <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/music-review/ariel-pink-dedicated-bobby-jameson">Ariel Pink</a> and Best Coast&#8230;<em>coincidence???</em> (Yup, probably; since Kowalsky&#8217;s duo Date Palms was also on the label.)

Quit looking out that window and pay attention to this <em>screen</em>; this is IMPORTANT: Danish composer and pianist August Rosenbaum is premiering the third single from his upcoming album <cite>Vista</cite>. Titled &#8220;Calling Out,&#8221; it features the Danish vocalist Philip Owusu, of the duo Owusu/Hannibal. Rosenbaum recalls first hearing the vocalist&#8217;s work when he was 19, name-dropped by none other than the perpetually youthful Pharrell&nbsp;Williams. </p> <p>Part delta blues hymnal, part idyllic romp with a wedding big band, &#8220;Calling Out&#8221; features the vocalist gliding over Rosenbaum&#8217;s characteristically floral arrangements. He hums for two sweet minutes before belting out some hair-raising lines about &#8220;honey bees.&#8221; This cut is free and breezy. Displaying Rosenbaum&#8217;s dexterity for establishing a mood, it&#8217;s a far cry from the grimly evocative &#8220;<a href="https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/new-music/discovery/august-rosenbaum-nebula">Nebula</a>,&#8221; shared back in&nbsp;June. </p> <p><cite>Vista</cite> is going to be released by the adventurous Copenhagen label <a href="http://tambourhinoceros.net/">Tambourhinoceros</a> on November 24.

When Adolph Zukor first headed out west, Hollywood was a desert. Put a little tinsel in the tree and it&#8217;s Christmas. But who needs tinsel — or Hollywood&#8230;or holidays — when the tree we&#8217;re talking about is a Dragon Blood&nbsp;tree? </p> <p>On <cite>Travel</cite>, &#8220;Imagination is the theme,&#8221; writes (Solange and Blood Orange collaborator) John Carroll Kirby. A fleshy imagination, informed by experience and heightened by introspection, brought out from the quiet, largely &#8220;composed in a small village in Belize, where the only sounds were chickens and children and the occasional small boat on the&nbsp;river.&#8221; </p> <p>Like Martin Denny&#8217;s <cite>Forbidden Island</cite>; Les Baxter&#8217;s <cite>Caribbean Moonlight</cite>; Piero Umiliani&#8217;s <cite>Africa</cite>; Haruomi Hosono, Shigeru Suzuki, and Tatsuro Yamashita&#8217;s <cite>Pacific</cite>, <a href=https://johncarrollkirby.com target="blank">Kirby&#8217;s</a> <cite>Travel</cite> provides the transportation for exotic transformation.

An extraterrestrial yet earthly encounter among endemic flora and golden synthesizers, and a worthy first tour stop from Kirby&#8217;s daydream&nbsp;archipelago. </p> <p><a href=https://www.outsideinsight.earth target="_blank">Outside Insight</a> will release <cite>Travel</cite> on October 27.

Nearly all of the sounds on the new album were created directly by (or derived from) Wiegand&#8217;s software baby, so you can be reasonably certain that he got borderline-surgical during the creative process. The Berliner himself describes the album as &#8220;rather accessible and cheerful; at times ridiculously cheerful but still very sincere and&nbsp;emotional.&#8221;</p> <p>This is one to anticipate and <a href="https://errorsmithpan.bandcamp.com/album/superlative-fatigue">pre-order</a>, if you&#8217;re into that sort of thing.

Until then, we have the oh-so-fashionable vinyl; and then we also have the oh-so-fashionably-obsolescent <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/chocolate-grinder/watch-lee-noble-copshow">Lee Noble</a>: the Los Angeles-based musician who&#8217;s done his part to shine a light on the lowly <em>cassette</em>. A good portion of Noble&#8217;s efforts over the past seven years have been released on cassette; in fact, the <a href="http://nokingsrecord.co/">No Kings</a> record label that he now principally runs from his SoCal home base has essentially been a <a href="https://www.discogs.com/label/213974-No-Kings">tapes-only</a> operation since its inception. (What&#8217;s that, Lee? More tapes with careful artwork&nbsp;consideration?)</p> <p>Although it represents a continuation of the improved fidelity, intelligibility, and heterogeneity of recent albums like <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/chocolate-grinder/premiere-lee-noble-wring-the-rag">Ruiner</a> and <cite><a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/chocolate-grinder/listen-lee-nobel-un-look">Un Look</a></cite>, Noble&#8217;s upcoming release, <cite>The Hell of You Come In</cite>, still promises more of the same kind of fog-enveloped songwriting that should capture the hearts and minds of any self-respecting member of the International Reverb Fan Club. But be warned: Noble seems no longer content with merely playing folk underwater (heck, the new one even boasts multiple earnest-sounding synth&nbsp;tracks!).</p> <p><cite>The Hell of You Come In</cite> is out October 27. Look for the cassette courtesy of No Kings, with <a href="https://www.palebluerecords.net/">Pale Blue Records</a> co-sponsoring the digital release. Spotify-heads can stream the track &#8220;Electra&#8221; on October 10. Until then, you&#8217;ll just have to content yourself with digitally streaming some highlights from the aforementioned <cite>Un Look</cite> via Noble&#8217;s Bandcamp down below.
