Sam Thomas – ‘Gift’ ( Just Music)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2013 by E.N.

Sam_Thomas_press_shot_2_580pSam Thomas has just revealed his second single, ‘Gift’  which is out on Just Music this July.
Just Music are the original label behind Jon Hopkins. Originally signing him 14 years ago, they now continue to guide his career as managers having signed him onto Domino after his third album. Pioneers for spotting interesting and burgeoning talent, Sam Thomas is their latest find.

Son of a former Opera singer, multi-instrumentalist Sam Thomas takes influence from the slow-building classical music he listened to growing up and fuses this with the rockier sounds of his teenage years. Influenced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and My Bloody Valentine, he creates an emotive post-rock sound, juxtaposing heavy instrumentals with soft pastoral calms.

Sigur Rós – inni + festival video

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on September 17, 2011 by E.N.

SIGUR RÓS INNI
the definitive live experience. out november 7th 2011.
inni
The new sigur ros live film and double album, will be released november 7th. It is now available to pre-order in 5 different formats, including a special edition exclusive to this site, on the sigur-ros.co.uk frontpage.

‘inni’ is either the first-ever sigur rós live album, or second live film (and follow up to 2007’s acclaimed iceland tour film heima). in fact, it is both: a 75-minute film and 105-minute double live album of the band captured in full flow at the close of their last tour in november 2008, here housed within one single fat package.

filmed at alexandra palace over two nights by director vincent morisset (arcade fire’s ‘miroir noir’), the movie ‘inni’ could best be described as the anti-‘heima’. whereas that film took a band about whom the world knew little, and placed them in the cultural, social and geographical context of their homeland, (with winning and humanising results); the new film strips away everything save the raw performance of the four musicians themselves. where ‘heima’ was widescreen and open, ‘inni’ is close and single focussed.

this is intentional. for while ‘heima’ was successful at “explaining” sigur rós, it was less so at conveying what it feels like to actually watch sigur rós play. that is the job of ‘inni’. in order to accomplish this goal, morisset has taken his time and employed a number of different analogue post-production techniques to create an emotional understanding of being in the room with the band and going ‘inside’ the music. (“inni” literally means “inside”).

unlike many concerts, watching sigur rós is seldom a communal experience; it is instead intensely personal. by almost entirely removing awareness of the crowd and any sense of place, morisset brings you closer than ever to the players, using multiple camera angles to reveal in sometimes minute close up the concentration and effort involved in delivering such a powerful rock show.

originally filmed on hd digital, ‘inni’ was first transferred to 16mm film and then projected and re-filmed once, sometimes through glass and other objects to give a strong impressionistic look, a feat accomplished with the help of godspeed you! black emperor visual collaborator karl lemieux. the film was then meticulously pieced together by ‘heima’ editor nick fenton, who chose to break up the flow with unexplained archive footage, including interview and concert material from before the band’s exposure to the wider world at the tail end of the last century.

it’s worth mentioning also that the film has only one song in common with ‘heima’ (the closing ‘popplagið’) and that it draws for the most part on the darker end of the band’s material. the double live album by contrast, covers the entire sigur rós spectrum over its hour-and-three-quarters, the songs played in the same order as on the night. mixed by sigur rós house engineer birgir jon birgisson, ‘inni’, the live album, stands as the definitive sigur rós live recording.

the performance captures the band playing as a stripped down four-piece for the first time since they were joined by string section amiina at the start of the decade. this fundamental ‘boiling down’ makes ‘inni’ a more forceful and primal proposition, much at odds with the popular misconception of the band as purveyors of instant emotional heft for film-makers in need.

the album features 15 tracks, with songs taken from all five sigur rós studio albums. there is also the bonus of an unreleased studio track in the form of ‘lúppulagið’, which is used both over the credits of the film and as the final non-live track on the album. the dvd/blu-ray, meanwhile, also includes four extra songs from the night.

Mercury Rev Announces “Deserter’​s Songs” Reissue, May 16th via Co-Op+Free Download Classic Song Opus 40

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 1, 2011 by E.N.

Mercury Rev Announce Reissue of   Their Seminal Album Deserter’s Songs on May 16 via Co-Op Music

“…thoroughly, hauntingly beautiful…”– The A.V. Club
 
“Deserter’s Songs, feels like a watershed, the point where their heady mix of

orchestral pop, roots rock, psychedelia, prog, choral, and chamber music finally crystallizes into something special and damn near ineffable… let’s just call Deserter’s Songs the art-rock album of the year.” – Entertainment Weekly
 
“A modern classic.”
– NME
 

On May 16, Mercury Rev will return with a deluxe double CD reissue of their classic 1998 album, Deserter’s Songs via Co-Op Music. The release comes complete with a 13-track bonus disc of demos, b-sides, rarities and outtakes. And In honor of the album’s re-release, Mercury Rev have made their classic song “Opus 40” available for free download.

Click HERE to listen to the song.
 

Even for Mercury Rev, who had become know for their arty, left-field pop, Deserter’s Songs was something of a revelation. Tweaking their reputation for harsh noisy freakouts, the album was a lush, orchestral counterpoint to the band’s catalogue at that point. Incorporating elements of folk, jazz, ’60s rock, and even Disney soundtrack fantasia, Deserter’s Songs was like nothing that had come before it. Tracks like “The Funny Bird,” “Holes,” and “Opus 40” were cosmic epics, whose arrangements were simultaneously grandiose and tender.
 
A paradoxical, unconventional record, the album turned heads and ended up an unexpected, worldwide hit. The album was named “Album of the Year” by NME, MOJO and many other publications.  It was the record that broke Mercury Rev into the mainstream in the U.K. and Europe, with the album scoring three Top 40 singles in the U.K. for “Goddess on a Highway”, “Holes” and “Opus 40.” And in the U.S., the album remains a cult-classic, ready to be reintroduced to the next generation.
