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. You can pre-order <cite>Vista</cite> <a href="http://smarturl.it/TAMB178LP">here</a> and stream &#8220;Calling Out&#8221; — with all of its accompanying stone-faced mood visuals — down below.

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. It&#8217;s an easy&nbsp;escape. </p> <p>Case in point: Socotra the island doesn’t need the song. “Socotra” the song doesn’t need the island. Together, what do we get? 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. Pre-order it <a href="https://johncarrollkirby.bandcamp.com/">here</a> and, to kill time while you&#8217;re waiting, set sail for the aural island of &#8220;Socotra&#8221; as many times as you&#8217;d like, down&nbsp;below.</p> <p><iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/343383139%3Fsecret_token%3Ds-ui9Uf&amp;color=%23ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false"></iframe></p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1709/outin002-cover-3000x3000-web-final.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p><cite>Travel</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

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. If you&#8217;re <em>not</em>, get nudged by listening to the track &#8220;I&#8217;m Interesting, Cheerful <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Sociable&#8221; below.

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.

I&nbsp;do.)</p> <p>Now then, great news: we officially don&#8217;t have to miss Sun City Girls quite as much anymore! Because Alan Bishop — the big boss of <a href="http://www.sublimefrequencies.com/">Sublime Frequencies</a> Sun City&#8217;s resident sun god — is back on the experimental folk-rock scene with a <em>huge</em> new album. Comprised of 35 (!) brand new songs recorded in Cairo between 2014 and 2017 — and featuring members of The Invisible Hands, The Spoils, Master Musicians of Bukkake, The Dwarfs of East Agouza, and Climax Golden Twins — this new jukebox of megajams is entitled <cite>With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven</cite> (who&#8217;s hungry?). It&#8217;s due November 3 as a 90&#8217;s-nostalgia-ready double-CD via the Abduction label, and it comes with a &#8220;24-page booklet with artwork, lyrics, and credits.&#8221; Wow, B.,&nbsp;Wow!</p> <p>Okay, case closed, right? All you gotta do is <a href="http://forcedexposure.com/Catalog/alvarius-b-with-a-beaker-on-the-burner-and-an-otter-in-the-oven-2cd/ABDT.059CD.html">pre-order the little bugger here</a>, track down working CD player, and begin enjoying your life again! End of TMT news post. That&#8217;s all,&nbsp;folks!!! </p> <p>&#8230;OH WAIT. Nope. I sorta forgot to mention: because this is Alan Bishop we&#8217;re talking about here (and because you might not be able to find a working CD player after all), the album is <em>ALSO</em>coming out as three separate LP&#8217;s, each with its own release date and title. Volume 1, SUB-entitled <cite>Natural Wonder</cite> <a href="http://forcedexposure.com/Catalog/alvarius-b-with-a-beaker-on-the-burner-and-an-otter-in-the-oven-vol-lp/ABDT.059A.LP.html">comes out on October 6</a>; while Volume 2 (<cite>A Mark Twain August</cite>) <a href="http://forcedexposure.com/Catalog/alvarius-b-with-a-beaker-on-the-burner-and-an-otter-in-the-oven-vol-lp/ABDT.059B.LP.html">hits on October 20</a>, with the final volume (<cite>Heathen Folklore</cite>) <a href="http://forcedexposure.com/Catalog/alvarius-b-with-a-beaker-on-the-burner-and-an-otter-in-the-oven-vol-lp/ABDT.059C.LP.html">following on November 3.</a> Got all&nbsp;that? </p> <p>Good. Then there&#8217;s absolutely no need to watch the trailer/explanatory video embedded below for more information! (I&#8217;ll just go ahead and stick it down there anyway — along with the 2-CD version&#8217;s cover art and tracklisting — but, seriously&#8230;DO NOT WATCH IT.

Hmm&#8230;well, either way, that fine, generous, and glistening example of a human being <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/artists/jason-lescalleet">Jason Lescalleet</a> has heard your/my/our irrational lamentation &#8220;loud and clear&#8221; and has decided to do something characteristically &#8220;soft and murky&#8221; about&nbsp;it. </p> <p>And so, with all the gentle power of his <a href="https://glisteningexamples.bandcamp.com/">Glistening Examples</a> imprint, he&#8217;s just opened his gentle palm and released two new soft, float-y, downy feathers into the Tuesday wind. First up, we have Darren McClure&#8217;s <cite>Nature Mirror</cite>, comprised of four impressionistic vignettes which were &#8220;composed and recorded during late spring 2017, as the rice fields of Nagano [Japan] were being filled with water and planted&#8221; in a process known as “waking up the fields.&#8221; According to McClure, &#8220;stillness, parallel lines, and nature are represented in the music, just as clouds and mountains are reflected in the flooded&nbsp;fields.&#8221; </p> <p>Next, there&#8217;s <cite>TIME + PLACE</cite>, a recondite, contemplative, and fog-enshrouded new offering (also comprised of four long-form tracks) from the Vancouver, BC-based composer Joda Clément. Both albums were mastered by Lescalleet himself (for MAXIMUM, LOUDNESS WAR-PULVERIZING <b>POWER!</b>) at his Glistening Labs, USA and are stream-able down&nbsp;below. </p> <p>If you like what you hear, pick up <cite>Nature Mirror</cite> <a href="https://glisteningexamples.bandcamp.com/album/nature-mirror">right here</a> and <cite>TIME + PLACE</cite> <a href="https://glisteningexamples.bandcamp.com/album/time-place">over here</a>. And if you&#8217;re feeling <em>really</em> nostalgic for the old &#8220;New Music Tuesday&#8221; effect, pick up both albums&#8217; physical CD editions — both of which also come with some stupifyingly serene photography and design action. You&#8217;ll have more soothing new music than you can <em>possibly</em> listen to on your evening commute in no time&nbsp;flat. </p> <p>Ahhh; I don&#8217;t know about you, but I&#8217;m feeling a little better about Tuesday&nbsp;already&#8230;</p> <p><iframe style="border: 0; width: 100%; height: 470px;" src="https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=641243475/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/tracklist=false/transparent=true/" seamless><a href="http://glisteningexamples.bandcamp.com/album/nature-mirror">Nature Mirror by Darren&nbsp;McClure</a></iframe></p> <p><cite>Nature Mirror</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting: </p> <p>01.

The bells are chiming. The thurible swings back and forth. The mass is back in session. There must be a new holy new mixtape out now on Berlin&#8217;s venerable <a href="http://janusberlin.com/">Janus</a> label. And this time, the celebrants are the pair of stellar Danish producers Why Be and&nbsp;Beacktearer.</p> <p>It&#8217;s no secret that we&#8217;ve been worshipers of Why Be and Backtearer for a little while now. Both Why Be&#8217;s <em><a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/music-review/why-be-snipestreet">Snipestreet</a></em> and Backtearer&#8217;s <em><a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/music-review/backtearer-swear">Swear</a></em> impressed us in 2015, and since then, these two have popped up on amazing mixes and records with the likes of Elysia Crampton, Chino Amobi, Rabit and many more. Pretty heavenly company all around,&nbsp;no? </p> <p>And now the blessings continue with the <cite>dc</cite> mixtape, which Janus describes as &#8220;an oneiric suite, moving through expressive registers alternately liturgical, pastoral, and diaristic.&#8221; Though the two international producers have joined forces before on &#8220;Freedom Amph,&#8221; a track off <em>Swear,</em> this EP marks their first complete collaborative project (the cover art was also contributed by none other than TMT-crush Chino Amobi). Setting aside the caustic club sounds they both frequent, <em>dc</em> consists of one 15-minute composite suite of elevatory, processional ambient music. It&#8217;s as beautiful and as beatless as either artist has ever&nbsp;been.</p> <p>Stream the that angelic mix of beautiful, beatless hymns for yourself down below. And of course, you can <a href="https://boomkat.com/products/dc-0cb25ddc-5473-49a8-9bbf-ba1b9bc61961">capture it forever on vinyl</a>,&nbsp;too. </p> <p>The mass is now ended.
