Yellow Year signing Alessi’s Ark releasing video for 'DLD' - song features Maccabees members Felix & Will

Alessi's Ark
+ New video for single from album Love Is The Currency
+ Song features Maccabees members Felix & Will
+ Support from Consequence of Sound, Dork, Guardian, The Line of Best Fit, Mojo
 
 
 
 
“The understated arrangements suggest you’re listening to a woman with impeccable taste.” MOJO

“It takes several plays to appreciate all the small touches that make each delicate piece.” The Guardian
 
 

 


London based singer-songwriter Alessi’s Ark AKA Alessi Laurent-Marke releases a warming video this winter for the single ‘DLD (Door Light Dream)’ from her new album Love is the Currency, produced by Mercury Prize nominated producer Jago Jago, and in collaboration with Felix and Will White of the Maccabees.

DLD (Door.Light.Dream), is the directorial debut for long-time friends Aude Chagnon-Caument and Paris based photographer, Julien Bourgeois. Having collaborated on the album cover of Love is the Currency, Julien and Aude were the natural pairing for Alessi's new video.

DLD captures the closing of British summertime on the beautiful Isle of Wight. Weaving through the hills and along the coast, the video follows two strangers while they independently traverse the same route through a Victorian seaside town. For a moment, their paths intersect. However, the strangers never actually meet.

The video closes as Alessi discovers a photograph of the two strangers together, looking out to sea, and we're left wondering whether the photo is a premonition of the two strangers eventually finding one another. 

Hailing from Hammersmith, Alessi Laurent-Marke takes influence from bands such as Broken Social Scene to incorporate electronic elements into folk songwriting. Her work has seen her tour with the likes of Laura Marling, Jenny Lewis, M. Ward and John Grant.

Alessi’s Ark will be performing a string of live dates across the UK in Spring 2018 following a tour of Japan as well as a US stint with Jake Bellows (Neva Dinova / Whispertown).

DAVID BYRNE ANNOUNCES OPENING ACTS FOR WORLD TOUR  INCLUDING PERFUME GENIUS, JUANA MOLINA, IBEYI, AND MORE...

AMERICAN UTOPIA OUT MARCH 9 ON TODOMUNDO/NONESUCH RECORDS

David Byrne has officially announced openers for his upcoming world tour in support of his new solo album American Utopia, out March 9 on Todomundo/Nonesuch Records. Each internationally celebrated act was handpicked by Byrne, who has long championed younger, innovative artists from varied backgrounds through touring, collaborations, David Byrne Radio and more. Support includes Lisandro Aristimuño in Argentina; Juana Molina in Uruguay; Karina Zeviani in Brazil; Mexican Institute of Sound in Mexico; Perfume Genius, Benjamin Clementine, and Ibeyi in the United States; and Laura Mvula in Europe.  On the tour, which is selling quickly, Byrne will perform new songs from American Utopia, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads. A twelve-piece band will also join Byrne on stage for an Annie-B Parson choreographed concert that he has called  “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.” Annie-B Parson also choreographed the  St. Vincent and David Byrne collaboration tour around Love This Giant.

David had this to say about some of the opening acts via Twitter:

Juana Molina
“Juana Molina will be bringing her ‘powerful hallucinogenic vibes’ to the #AmericanUtopia show in Montevideo next month! @spin  @teatrodeverona”

Mexican Institute of Sound
“I included Mexican Institute of Sound in my November 2014 DB Radio playlist and I'm so excited to have them open the #AmericanUtopia shows in Mexico! @tmetropolitanmx  @AuditorioPM”

Benjamin Clementine
“I was introduced to Benjamin Clementine’s music through a friend. I was floored! I asked him to perform in the 2015 #MeltdownFest I curated in London and am honored to have him join me at various stops along the #AmericanUtopia US Tour!”

Laura Mvula
“In tough times one might expect artists to play it safe... But everyone here is taking chances; it’s heartening.” From a June 2016 playlist that included Laura Mvula and it couldn't be more relevant now. Looking forward to Laura joining some #AmericanUtopia dates across Europe this summer!”

Lisandro Aristimuño
“Lisandro Aristimuño has been on a number of my Latin Rock playlists over the years and it’s a privilege to have him and his band join me at my show in Buenos Aires.

Ibeyi
In the Yoruba language, Ibeyi is an Orisha who is embodied as a pair of twins. A Candomble priest read my shells in Salvador and determined that my primary Orisha is Obatala. What happens when Ibeyi meets Obatala? We'll see when they join #AmericanUtopia dates on the West Coast!

Karina Zeviani
I met Karina years ago in NY and knew her from her work with NouvelleVague. I was drawn to her lovely bossa/sambas and hooked when she took her sound in a more experimental/electronic direction. Karina will join the #AmericanUtopia tour in Brazil!

Perfume Genius
“Perfume Genius’s gorgeous songs are filled with unexpected sounds and deeply personal—and his costumes would have made Bowie jealous. I am looking forward to sharing the stage with Mike during some #AmericaUtopia dates this Spring!  

More about American Utopia
 
While David Byrne has collaborated on joint releases with Eno, Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim), and most recently St. Vincent over the past decade, American Utopia is Byrne’s first solo album since, 2004’s Grown Backwards, also on Nonesuch. American Utopia morphed during the writing and recording process, beginning with longtime collaborator Eno, and eventually growing to include collaboration with producer Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, King Krule, Sampha, Savages) alongside a diverse cast of creative contributors including Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), Jam City, Thomas Bartlett (St. Vincent producer, aka Doveman), Jack Peñate, and others. The album was recorded in New York City at David’s home studio, Reservoir Studios, Oscilloscope, XL Studios, and Crowdspacer Studio and in London at Livingston Studio 1.
 
The album packaging features the work of “outsider artist” Purvis Young, whose work was often a blend of painting/drawing and collaged elements comprised of everyday found objects. A painting depicting a head with a face of indeterminate race or possibly gender—dreaming, meditating, contemplating—is on the album’s cover.

David Byrne’s recent works include Joan of Arc: Into the Fire, a theatrical exploration of the historical heroine which premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2017); The Institute Presents: NEUROSOCIETY, a series of interactive environments created in conjunction with PACE Arts + Technology that question human perception and bias (2016); Contemporary Color, an event inspired by the American folk tradition of color guard and performed at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre (2015); Here Lies Love, a twenty-two-song theatrical production about the life of Imelda Marcos, authored in collaboration with Fatboy Slim that premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2013), traveled to London’s National Theater for a sold-out run (201415), and was remounted at the Seattle Repertory Theater (2017); Love This Giant, a studio album and worldwide tour created with St. Vincent (2012); and How Music Works, a book about the history, experience, and social aspects of music (2012). In 2015 Byrne curated Southbank Centre’s annual Meltdown festival in London. Aco-founder of the group Talking Heads (1976–88), he has released nine studio albums and worked on multiple other projects, including collaborations with Brian Eno, Twyla Tharp, Robert Wilson, and Jonathan Demme, among others. He also founded the highly respected record label Luaka Bop. Recognition of Byrne’s various works include Obies, Drama Desk, Lortel, and Evening Standard awards for Here Lies Love, an Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe for the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Talking Heads. Byrne has published and exhibited visual art since his college days, including photography, filmmaking and writing. He lives in New York City.

LISTEN: LITTLE DRAGON'S "SWAY DAISY"

LITTLE DRAGON:  "SWAY DAISY"
Catch Them On Tour This Spring!

little dragon newer


Little Dragon have unveiled a brand new song ahead of their North American spring tour. Entitled "Sway Daisy," the track is a slow burning synth pop fever dream.  Click HERE to listen to it.  Tour dates are below.  

"Sway Daisy" follows last year's acclaimed album Season High, out now on Loma Vista Recordings, which Brooklyn Vegan called"continued proof of how timeless this band can be." From the album came irresistibly smooth singles "High," which Pigeons & Planes included in their Best Songs of 2017, and "Sweet."

Praise for Little Dragon and Season High:
"This group has never felt compelled to induce whiplash; in fact, their willingness to lay back and luxuriate presaged a wave of reflective, unhurried pop that remains trendy today." - Rolling Stone

"Season High, Little Dragon's latest triumph, is continued proof of how timeless this band can be." - Brooklyn Vegan

"Like its predecessors, their fifth full-length Season High  purposefully avoids marquee guests and wild stylistic leaps in favor of cautiously controlled, luxury mood music."
-  Pitchfork

"With an evolved new collection of tracks that are both hot and smart, Little Dragon has set themselves further apart." - Under The Radar

"Season High i s typical Little Dragon fare, and we mean that in the best way possible. This is perfect pre-summer music." - Pigeons & Planes

"Throwback synths welcome in the warm slice of alternative R&B, a track full of smooth, subtle low-end and snapping percussion. "High" is equal parts meditative and sensual..."
- Consequence of Sound

"Season High moves from slinky Prince pastiche to body-jacking house music, and it takes all of them with a smooth sense of assurance." - Stereogum

"This paean to loose trips and close touches is a reliable soundtrack to a narcotized Valentine's Day in with a main squeeze." - NPR

"beautiful dream-pop vocals from lead singer Yukimi Nagano, layered over slow-dance-appropriate electronic beats" - Paste Magazine

"Here's your new, woozy bedroom anthem. Press play and vibe out. This is music therapy at its most alleviating." - NYLON


Tour Dates:
March 02 | Pioneertown, CA at Pappy & Harriet's (Inside)
March 03 | San Diego, CA at CRSSD Festival
March 04 | Phoenix, AZ at Crescent Ballroom
March 06 | Tucson, AZ at The Rialto Theater

Liars Release New Remix EP "VFCF"

LIARS

RELEASE NEW REMIX EP VFCF

LISTEN NOW
"[TFCF] couldn’t be a more appropriate marker of the irrepressible project’s evolution, nor a more fitting testament to Liars’ legacy." – Pitchfork

“TFCF signals yet another rebirth.” – Spin

"...fuckin' great...absolutely lovely..." – Noisey

“a triumph that [Liars] continue successfully exploring such drastically different paths." – Brooklyn Vegan
 
LIARS have today released a new remix EP, VFCF (Variations From Crying Fountain), featuring reworkings of “Staring At Zero” and “Cred Woes,” two of the singles from Liars’ latest album TFCF. Listen to the EP here.

“Staring At Zero” has been given the remix treatment by Mark Reeder, the director of B Movie: Lust & Sound in West Berlin (1979-1989), who recently remixed New Order’s "Academic" and ADULT., who released their latest album, Detroit House Guests, on Mute.

“Cred Woes” has been reworked by 33, aka Mary Pearson of High Places and LA’s HXXS, whose recent album release, MKDRONE, was produced by Angus Andrew.

Liars have just launched a competition to remix “No Help Pamphlet,” the winning remix will win Native Instruments’ Komplete Ultimate 11 production suite, a Native Instruments voucher, a yearlong subscription to LANDR Pro and will be featured on a future Liars release via Mute. Go to https://metapop.com/pages/promos/liars-no-help for full details.

Liars have, as a matter of course, sounded radically different with each album, pursuing new concepts and occupying diverse mindsets. On TFCF, Liars’ eighth studio album, the bustling backdrops of Los Angeles, Berlin and New York have been replaced with a presence far more intimate and autobiographical as Liars once again boldly step out of their comfort zone into vastly new musical territory and reinvent the band’s paradigm – blurring the lines between electronic and acoustic, between the experimental impulse and the addictive pop sensibility.

Angus Andrew decamped to his native Australia, specifically to a remote part of the Australian bush, to create an album unlike any Liars had attempted before. Cut off from the rest of the world in his remote home studio, with no other distractions, Angus gave free reign to artistic impulses he’d never explored and those included experimenting with the acoustic guitar and sampling.

Liars were recently shortlisted for the 13th Australian Music Prize awards, due for announcement later this year.

"One would be remiss to say that Holly Miranda's greatest asset is her voice. Of course, the unearthly power it conveys can quickly capture a listener, but there's always more at play behind it...There's reinvention that rekindles what won fans in the first place, there's her songwriting—which opens pathways to emotional reckoning—and, more than ever, there's her ability to collaborate with exponential effect."
- Cool Hunting

"It’s a woozy blend of contemplative guitars a la ’90s Fiona Apple with the horns and production of Dear Science-era TVOTR.."
- Consequence Of Sound
Today Billboard has shared Holly Miranda's new LP 'Mutual Horse'. The album provided three singles: "To Be Loved", "Golden Spiral" and "Exquisite", the last of which features T.V. On The Radio's Kyp Malone. "Exquisite" also has a video which is directed by Kyp. All three tracks will be available on Holly's new LP 'Mutual Horse', out today on Dangerbird Records. You can order the LP here. Holly will also be playing shows in NYC & L.A., including a show at Park Church Co-op in Brooklyn.

When talking about the LP Holly says, ““It's a heavy thing and a very beautiful thing to share right now,”That's not to say it's a mournful listening experience. I would say it's one of the more joyful and funky things I've ever made, but there are a few tracks that will be tough for me to sing live. It's a journey, for sure."

Tour Dates:
3/8 - Los Angeles, CA @ Zebulon
3/22 - Brooklyn, NY @ Park Church Co-op
