(The heavy North American trio recently gave us a kick-ass taste of our own anxiety last year, via <cite><a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/sumac-ft-members-isismamiffer-russian-circles-baptists-release-new-album-thrill-jockey">What One Becomes</a></cite> and is set to hit the road for some west coast dates in&nbsp;January). </p> <p>The converged twain&#8217;s resultant collabor-album is entitled <cite>American Dollar Bill — Keep Facing Sideways, You&#8217;re Too Hideous To Look At Face On</cite>, and it comes out February 23 on Thrill Jockey. The album resulted from &#8220;a series of unrehearsed, completely non-premeditated sessions&#8221; that took place between Haino and SUMAC this past summer. And the anticipated level of intensity — what with Haino and staple of the American doom scene Aaron Turner possibly sharing vocal duties — is basically&#8230;<em>UNFATHOMABLE</em>. </p> <p>Luckily, you can pre-order the release <a href="https://thrilljockey.com/products/american-dollar-bill-keep-facing-sideways-you-re-too-hideous-to-look-at-face-on">here</a> and watch a handy album trailer down below&#8230;both of which should help a little with the&nbsp;intensity-fathoming:</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bC4GJc32mRM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><center><br /> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/unnamed_9_0.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p></p></center></p> <p><cite>American Dollar Bill — Keep Facing Sideways, You&#8217;re Too Hideous To Look At Face On</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

I sure do! (Even though dude died when I was three. (Boy, do I feel old!)) The world could use the legendary Nigerian composer and political activist&#8217;s visionary musical voice right about now. In addition to composing dinosaur-sized polyrhythmic funk tracks, the man had a rapier wit and experience tangling with absurd regimes — both of which help make his music a potent salve for, uh, all the SHIT that seems to be going on all the&nbsp;time. </p> <p>Well, Fela might not be with us, but it&#8217;s great know that his offspring are out there plying their own takes on his groovemaster/gadfly dichotomy. IN FACT, Femi Kuti, the first of Fela’s kids to kick down the door to Afro-pop stardom, has a new album dropping VERY SOON…Ok, actually it’s not out &#8216;til next year — February 23, 2018. So PRETTY SOON.

The five-track release is out January 2018 and will be a vinyl-only release via&nbsp;Domino.</p> <p>In a statement about the EP, Panda Bear speaks somewhat ambiguously about its creation and possible reception. &#8220;I hoped to make something without frills or much embellishment, principally because I&#8217;ve found more fluff tends to equal less power.

I appreciate your role as filter or translator, and by withholding my own blueprints for the album, I mean to encourage and cultivate your part in its&nbsp;trip.</p> <p>The songs aren&#8217;t lyrically linear or narrative as such, though I did scatter pieces of longer-chewed themes across the tracks. I find they still work satisfactorily alone, but strengthen each other&#8217;s messages when&nbsp;combined.</p> <p>I hoped to make something without frills or much embellishment, principally because I&#8217;ve found more fluff tends to equal less power. Since the juiciest action is entirely focused in the deeper zones of the frequency spectrum (at least from where I’ve sat), power was&nbsp;key.</p> <p>It&#8217;s not often anymore I find something specific to my life that feels worthwhile setting to song for others to consume. It&#8217;s a tough sell convincing myself that my own troubles warrant as much attention as those we all share. The strokes of the messages themselves are broad enough, then, that I think anybody can find a familiar face, if they care to&nbsp;look.</p> <p>The lion&#8217;s share of the noise is centered, or nearly, so both speakers get a taste. This is another nod towards power, but it also means HOMIES doesn&#8217;t work in the same way through headphones as it does out in the&nbsp;air.</p> <p>My greatest hope with this stuff is for it to live like my favorite songs do, which is to say like comforts or companions. Thank you very much for listening and I hope A Day With the Homies can mean something to&nbsp;you.</p></blockquote> Animal Collective Panda Bear Domino Tue, 21 Nov 2017 15:47:32 +0000 Mr P 160356 at https://www.tinymixtapes.com Etant Donnés and Michael Gira’s 1999 noise onslaught Offenbarung Und Untergang to be reissued on Munster Records 2017-11-21T11:14:08-05:00 https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/etant-donnes-and-michael-giras-offenbarung-und-untergang-be-reissued-munster-records?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tmt Music <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/mr376cd_cu.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-Article_Width" width="600" height="600" /> <p><center><em>The Legend of Georg Trakl: An Industrial Fairy Tale</em></center></p> <p><em><center>Once upon a time in the faraway land of Austria, there lived a cocaine addict named Georg Trakl. Being the early years of the 20th century, emo hadn’t been invented yet, and goth was more than a half century off, so the young Trakl could only soothe his inner torment through his macabre writing (and lots of blow). His vivid imagery took on an especially nightmarish tone when he became stationed as a pharmacist during World War I, when our hero encountered many patients he couldn’t help. Deadening his anxieties with easy access to pharmaceuticals, the horrors of war still proved too much, and Trakl committed suicide by injecting himself with a lethal dose of cocaine within a year.</center></em></p> <p><center>*</center></p> <p>Not only is Trakl’s tale is a perfect transgressive storm (drug addiction, an intense visual writing style, and a possibly incestuous relationship with his sister, oh my!), but it&#8217;s ALSO possibly the best fodder EVER for an industrial concept&nbsp;record.</p> <p>Enter: <em>Offenbarung und Untergang</em> — a 1999 collaboration between Étant Donnés, Swans-frontman Michael Gira, EBM artist Saba Komossa, and Mark Cunningham of the obscure art rock outfit Mars — which was anchored by the tragic&nbsp;narrative. </p> <p>In case you&#8217;re not up to speed on the players: The Étant Donnés brothers are a hub of noise and industrial artists, having worked with a bevy of musicians like Alan Vega (Suicide), Genesis P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV), and Lydia Lunch (all-around badass). Gira, meanwhile, narrates and sings from the prose work, while Cunningham’s trumpet peeks out amongst the dense murk of&nbsp;noise. </p> <p><a href="http://munster-records.com/en/label/munster/product/offenbarung-und-untergang">Check out</a> the reissue January 26 on Munster Records, and (re)aquaint yourself with the opening &#8220;chapter&#8221; of the album&#8217;s six brutal elegies to an artist who died far too young.

The album&#8217;s production and musical cohesiveness have been objectively improved from his prior work, and <cite>Flower Boy</cite> is packed with introspection and a fragility previously unimaginable. Thank you for finally letting us in, Tyler! Thank&nbsp;you!</p> <p>Hmm.

Those first few snowflakes are nice at first (the beauty of mother nature, blah, blah, blah), but it turns into nasty slush pretty damn quickly. The options: 1) spend months trudging through a frigid metropolis; skin dry, nose runny, jeans ruined, or 2) rack up the Uber bills. It’d be great if there was an escape hatch to a place flowing with strong <em>caipirinhas</em> and sweet, mellifluous electronic music vibes keeping winter’s brutality at&nbsp;bay.</p> <p>Don&#8217;t despair! That place exists, electronic fiends. In March — a month where spring says <i>&#8220;I’m here jk lol&#8221;</i> for most North Americans and Europeans — Dekmantel returns with its second, sunny São Paulo edition. Aside from the array of eclectic musicians, the two-day fest raises the bar with its unique venue: the abandoned Playcenter amusement park located in the middle of the city. (Easily accessible via&nbsp;trains!)</p> <p>That&#8217;s right: on March 3-4, 2018, dozens of of finest names in electronica — including chillwave mastermind Four Tet, brain rinsers Modeselektor, DJ stalwart Nina Kraviz, Detroit techno veterans Marcel Dettmann and Palms Trax, and the electrofunk grooves of Floating Points — will basically set up shop amid the ruins of <em>Jurassic Park</em>! Also joining the cabal is a host of local Brazilian acts to expand your musical horizons — including <a href="https://www.discogs.com/artist/3756-Marcos-Valle">Marcos Valle</a>, a Brazilian pop institution with almost five decades in the&nbsp;game.</p> <p><a href="http://www.dekmantelfestival.com.br/en/">Head here</a> for tickets and more details, and keep scrolling for a list of confirmed acts and a few shots of the incredibly spooky, <em>Scooby Doo</em>-esque location.

He&#8217;s unleashed a string of releases that will surely have him on more than a few year-end lists&#8221; –&nbsp;Complex</em></p> <p><b><em>WRONG</em></b>. </p> <p>G Perico does not give a FUCK about your year-end&nbsp;list. </p> <p>You probably thought you had it all figured out, right? With G Perico’s name-making <cite>All Blue</cite> from April probably landing somewhere around the top of the heap as regards revisionist gangsta rap,&nbsp;eh? </p> <p>BUT! Now Perico has announced <cite>2 Tha Left</cite>, a whole <em>&#8216;NOTHER</em> new album, out December 8 on G Perico’s own label, So Way Out, distributed by&nbsp;Priority. </p> <p><cite>2 Tha Left</cite> will be Perico’s his third full-length release of the year, if you include the debut from G-Worthy, his project with Cardo and Jay&nbsp;Worthy. </p> <p>December 8, folks: The release date itself is a flex. (December albums, like G Perico’s leave us bean-counting music dweebs like ourselves in a tough spot: do you give Perico one <em>more</em> spot on your year-end list? Or, do you say &#8220;naw, man, that’s too late for this year’s list&#8221; and leave it off, maybe say it’ll be eligible next year? But <em>you know</em> you will have inevitably forgotten its significance by the time list season 2018 rolls around, so going this route effectively means you’ll be permanently relegating a worthy record to list&nbsp;limbo.)</p> <p>But honestly; GP doesn’t care about you OR what you put on your list.

November 20: a.k.a. the day that Scherk drops his new masterwork of experimental ambient doodles and sampled sketches, a bubbling hot spring of electronic sound art that’s chock full of gentle melodies which burst as they reach the&nbsp;surface. </p> <p>Released via London cassette label <a href="https://videogamemusic01.bandcamp.com">videogamemusic</a>, <em>Modelled</em>’s textures and samples intermingle with and repeat themselves, creating patterns which can then be &#8220;molded,&#8221; &#8220;shaped,&#8221; &#8220;sculpted,&#8221; &#8220;developed,&#8221; and other-synonyms-for-“modelled” (that L!) by the mind to exhort maximum engagement. The psychological results of all this constant stimulation is an inspiring <em>rush</em> of creativity as the brain begins to fire on all cylinders. Like: I’m going to go write a book, or paint a picture, or jog for miles! (I’m NOT going to go blow up Parliament or do anything remotely Fawkesian! I should just drop that&nbsp;reference.)</p> <p>You may recognize Scherk from 2015’s gorgeous self-released <a href="https://jonathanscherk.bandcamp.com"><em>Catalogue: 1-12</em></a> and/or the <a href="https://rvng.bandcamp.com/album/peaceful-protest-2"><em>Peaceful Protest</em></a> comp released earlier this year on RVNG. Heck, you might even know him personally (from what I understand, he’s a really ace&nbsp;guy). </p> <p>But regardless of whether you&#8217;re acquainted or not, you can order yourself a copy the cassette (each of which which includes a &#8220;unique silk-screened sleeve on super nice paper&#8221;) <a here="https://videogamemusic01.bandcamp.com/album/modelled">right here</a>, and you can also check out the album track “In a state of love” below, which should give you a nice aural sense of how the burgeoning romantic feelings toward another human being can sometimes feel like fizzy Alka-Seltzer tablets and ocean currents converging inside your&nbsp;body.</p> <p><iframe style="border: 0; width: 100%; height: 470px;" src="https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=4199230902/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=63b2cc/tracklist=false/track=3864013994/transparent=true/" seamless><a href="http://videogamemusic01.bandcamp.com/album/modelled">Modelled by Jonathan William&nbsp;Scherk</a></iframe> </p> <p><em>Modelled</em>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

The proclaimed “underground house hero” returns to <a href="https://superconsciousrecords.bandcamp.com/">Superconscious Records</a> this December 15 with a new double-dose of Ibiza-ready, 120 bpm <em>bangers</em>.</p> <p>Already finding himself <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzvLiwUK3R8&amp;t=1619s>spun</a> by the notorious Richard D. James, Fantastic Man looks to continue his hot streak with <cite>P.M.T.C.</cite>, a new pair of tunes that will pluck you right out of your trodden winter misery and drop you off in a paradise of the summery Spanish coast. Can&#8217;t you just feel that warm summer&nbsp;breeze&#8230;</p> <p><cite>P.M.T.C.</cite> promises more of the bright, psychedelic dance nostalgia that made last year’s <cite><a href="https://soundcloud.com/superconscious-records/sets/fantastic-man-rhythm-algorithm-scr006">Rhythm Algorithm</a></cite> EP such a hit. Listening to its buoyant B-side, “Cool Waters” (which you can stream below), it’s easy to see why the Australian DJ&#8217;s chops carry such cred in the house&nbsp;world. </p> <p>While it starts with a familiar yet beachy boom-bap pulse, the track&#8217;s halfway point loops in some vocal splices that shove the 7-minute track beyond pleasant into an enrapturing and toasty sonic world. Basically, if you’re looking for something to bring some summer to your winter DJ sets, this is the track for&nbsp;you. </p> <p>Pre-orders are <a href=”http://aboveboarddist.co.uk/superconscious-records/SCR010>up now</a> for the two-sided EP, so hop on those potatoes while they’re still hot and ready to&nbsp;party. </p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/mVEemfsbUbk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/unnamed_7_0.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p><cite>P.M.T.C.</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.
