Antony and the Johnsons

 
Swanlights
(Due October 12, 2010)

 


Album to be Released Secretly Canadian;

 

 

 

 

 

 
 Antony and the Johnsons will release their new album, “Swanlights”, on October 12th in the US via Secretly Canadian.  Abrams Image will simultaneously release a special edition of “Swanlights” which will include the CD inside a 144-page hard cover book containing Antony’s paintings, collages, photography and writing. The album only version of “Swanlights” on Secretly Canadian will also include the song “Flétta”, a duet with Björk. The album and book are a continuation of Antony’s work exploring his connection to the natural world.

Book to be released by Abrams Image

While I Am a Bird Now is compelling in its vulnerability, and The Crying Light is a masterpiece of austerity, Swanlights may be Antony’s most wide-rangingly emotional work to date. It is a record that is at moments heartbreakingly  tender, and at other times has a joyful gleam to its teeth. Unlike previous work, which was often quite sparsely voiced, on Swanlights the vines in the garden are overgrown and the sound palette has become more exotic; strange percussive elements, John Cale-esque string drones, heavily distorted guitars and symphonic winds and strings thread the song cycle together.

“Everything is New” opens the album with a newborn piano melody that quickly gathers in momentum and excitement. Strings and bursts of percussion carry the song forward in a feral cacophony of sound. Later on the album, the title track  “Swanlights” finds us navigating a primordial and hallucinatory world of hazy guitar tones. The enigmatic layered melody of “Swanlights” emerges from a glistening soundscape. A central image on the album, Antony explains what he means by the word “Swanlights”:  ”It’s the reflection of light on the surface of the water at night. It’s the moment when a spirit jumps out of a body and turns into a violet ghost.”  On “Thank You For Your Love”, Antony expresses a soul-infused sentiment of gratitude, but the song progresses into urgency, leaving behind the 4/4 rhythmic structure and breaking into an emotional gallop that reveals an underlying pathos.

The Swanlights book is a collection of thought-provoking paintings, drawings, collages, photography, and writings. Dreamlike and often bleakly environmental, Antony depicts a natural and spiritual world under siege. Much of the work aches with a forlorn romanticism. In some pieces, the artist draws together fragments of the past, the present and the future to create a ghostly sense of omniscience. One image features a portrait of the artist with his great grandmother’s face projected upon his own, creating a ricochet through time and genealogy.  Found images of natural landscapes are stained with scrawls of ink, indicating invisible presence and movement. Some pieces are more conceptual; in “Cut Away The Bad”, the artist removes corrupted elements in an attempt to restore balance.  In pieces like “I Want To Help” Antony sews a torn landscape back together with a magical intent.

Music and visual art intersect in these two presentations of Swanlights to create an arresting vision of the world through the artist’s eyes.

Swanlights is the fourth Antony and the Johnsons album and the follow up to the critically acclaimed “The Crying Light” which entered the European Chart at #1 was included in year-end best of lists across the globe in 2009. Antony burst into the international spotlight with his second album, “I am a Bird Now”, which won the UK’s prestigious Mercury Music Prize.

Release Note

After 10 years of exploring the highways and byways of electronic music exceptional records proudly presents a lovingly assembled sonic collection the likes of which you are unlikely to find elsewhere.

 With a heartfelt belief that there is much much more to electronic music than four to the floor and formulaic hands in the air twelves the label has consistently released a determinedly unpredictable selection of artists and mixes carving out a path lying somewhere between mainstream and experimental along the way

 This deliberately wilful approach is neatly encapsulated in “From Disco to Dubstep”  a wide ranging electronic exploration which joins many of the dots in an ever mutating series of scenes. Released as part of the label’s 10th anniversary celebrations, the double-CD release features an eclectic selection of 16 remixes of artists that currently call exceptional home. Touching on disco, lounge, electronica, house, electro, breaks, dubstep and more it throws down a challenge to narrow minded purists daring them to look, listen, and leave their comfort zone behind to explore just some of the possibilities that define electronic music.

 This is a celebration of a series of genres that may perhaps seem quite disparate, yet find common ground thanks to their roots in electronic software. Amongst some of the more familiar names on the tracklisting you can find Mock & Toof’s exuberant, 80’s-tinged deep house remix of Plej’s “Borderline”, typically impressive deep 4/4 action from Jimpster with his remix of “Awakening” by Ken Ishii, Tom Middleton’s up for it remix of “All Over Again” by Blu Mar Ten, the bazooka-bass dubstep of The Rogue Element with his remix of Nursery of Naughtiness’ “Electrified”, Reso and Raffertie trading punches,and Planas’ drastically different electronica restyling of Culprit 1’s “Screamer”. and the soulful dubby rework of Tubbs’ “New Way of Life” by Marlinspike (aka hot property Red Rack’em/Hot Coins ), featuring the chocolatey vocals of Joe Dukie. The whole package is completed with CD 2  providing the many splendoured original versions of the remixes featured on CD 1.

 “From Disco to Dubstep” then – proof positive that all is not lost in the world of compilations, and a sparkling showcase for Exceptional’s eponymous output.

Madlib Medicine Show #7: High Jazz+free mp3

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2010 by E.N.

Madlib Medicine Show #7: High Jazz is an all-new Madlib jazz production. High Jazz, the name itself a tribute to the landmark jazz-fusion album released by Stanton Davis’s Ghetto Mysticism in 1976, shows a marked development in Madlib’s craft.

Since the introduction of Madlib’s Yesterdays New Quintet releases nearly a decade ago, the producer’s core group of musicians and collaborators (known collectively as “Yesterdays Universe”) has grown by the dozens.  The notoriously elusive, publicity-shy and anti-commercial ethic of the group has kept many of the recordings from every being released, while others have been pressed anonymously, kept within the group or distributed only among private collectors.  

Among the newly released tracks on High Jazz are a Madlib, Karriem Riggins & James Poyser collaboration, the debut of groups Generation Match, The Big Black Foot Band, RMC, and a 15-minute live piece by Yesterdays New Quintet (recorded at a secret show in 2000).  The 15-track album runs a total of 61 minutes.  

Limited edition 3-disc vinyl:  Madlib has collected an additional 30 minutes of music for the limited edition vinyl release of High Jazz.  These tracks are not available on the CD or digital release.  Album covers will be hand screened by Hit+Run with a design by Jeff Jank, and individually numbered. See photos at stonesthrow.

Album track list:
1. The Jackson Conti Band – Steppin’ Into Tomorrow (Prelude)  
2. Generation Match – Electronic Dimensions  
3. Jahari Massamba Unit – Pretty Eyes
4. The Kenny Cook Octet – High Jazz  
5. Yesterdays New Quintet – Medley: Don’t You Worry Bout A Thing (Live At Spear for The Moondog)  
6. Interlude
7. The Big Black Foot Band, feat. The Black Spirits – Reality or Dream
8. Russell Jenkins Jazz Express – Drunk Again  
9.  Poyser, Riggins & Jackson – Funky Butt, Part 1 (MP3)
10. Jahari Massamba Unit – Wonderin’/Nightime
11. R.M.C. – Space & Time  
12. Yesterdays New Quintet – Conquistador  
13. The Big Black Foot Band, feat. The Black Spirits – Tarzan’s Theme
14. Interlude
15. Joe McDuphrey Experience – Kimo  

Bonus LP track list:
1. Jahari Masamba Unit – Falling  
2. Yesterdays New Quintet – Runnin’ Fast (On The Runs)  
3. Sound Directions, feat. Malcolm Catto – Shady Cops  
4. The Eddie Prince Fusion Band – The Struggle Is Over/Next Chapter  
5. O.D. – Wasted (Themes Variations)
