Remember Remember To Release New Album On
Mogwai’s Rock Action Records, Share New Video

Based in Glasgow, Scotland, the instrumental ensemble Remember Remember has announced the details for their second album, The Quickening, which will see a US release on October 11th through Mogwai’s Rock Action Records. To coincide with the news, the band is sharing a new animated video from Scottish-based animator Becky Manson for one of the album’s tracks, “Scottish Widows.”

Remember Remember’s musical journey, one that began as one guy on stage with a loopstation and a bag of toys, now finds them here with The Quickening, a powerful and exciting listen that promises live experiences just as thrilling.

Recorded in early 2011 at Chem 19 Studios, Scotland against a background of tumultuous global events, The Quickening sees Remember Remember return with the same seven-piece group heard on last year’s “RR Scorpii” EP. The Quickening is still a playful, colourful record- the music dives deeper into darker, psychedelic territories hinted at on “RR Scorpii.” Pagan waltzes, apocalyptic Egyptian surf and Middle Eastern modes mingle with somber pianos and bleak string interludes, concluding with a duo of songs- “One Happier” and “John Candy,” both bittersweet and stratospheric, creating an ending made of pure, bright light.

The band has has been playing elaborately staged shows in and around Glasgow for the past few years and has been producing some of the most epic-sounding and ambitious music we’ve heard in a long time. The band will appeal to fans of Mice Parade, Animal Collective and Bjork, along with artists such as Philip Glass, Brian Eno and Yann Tiersen.

” Nero’s Joe Ray and Dan Stephens ache to bestow post-dubstep with its can-you-believe-this-shit? flash of stadium-size euphoria, enhancing (or defiling, depending on your perspective) the genre’s bass-heavy payload with trancey synths and wailing vocals,- Charles Aaron, Spin

“Welcome Reality” will inevitably soundtrack thousands of summer and fall blowouts. …Nero understand how to make things burn.”
-Jeff Weiss, Los Angeles Times

“Glorious, splinter-thin moments when a sound is both free to do whatever it wants and still functioning as a new power source…”
– Sasha Frere-Jones, New Yorker

“Déjà Vu”Lorenzo Panico

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on September 20, 2011 by E.N.

“Déjà Vu”
Lorenzo Panico
Electric Sheep Recordings – ESR039
Release Date: 17 Oct 2011

Four unique interpretations of Lorenzo Panico‘s “Déjà Vu” make up this exceptional release from Electric Sheep Recordings.

Track one sees this seasoned Italian producer and DJ invite his friend Memz to deliver a spoken word intro. Reflecting on his narcotic experiences and questioning the baffling concept and mysterious sensation of “Déjà Vu“. Lorenzo complements this monologue with an understated, enticing and seductive groove led house cut.

Track two “Piano Groove” has Panorama Bar written all over its infectious 90’s NY house tinged face, whilst the “Instrumental Mix” allows Lorenzo to dabble further with his more techno influenced vibe, offering a solid slice of tech house.

Closing the release with “Dub Mix“, the atmosphere on this returns to that of track one. A warm bassline, coupled with exceptionally tight percussion, is soon met with disembodied and haunting stabs of synthesized samples, whilst subtle, disenfranchised glass pads and the wonderful sound of the theremin add a sense of other worldliness to the production.
