The Hundred In The Hands Share Andy Stott Remix, Announce North American Tour Dates

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2012 by E.N.

The Hundred In The Hands is releasing their new album RED NIGHT on June 12th via Warp Records, and today the band has shared Andy Stott’s ethereal remix of their single “Keep It Low.” The remix swells with added bass and percussion, which Stott transposes against Eleanore Everdell’s transfixing vocals throughout. It can be found on the 12-inch “Keep It Low” single, which includes an original B-side (“Mountains”), and additional remixes from JD Twitch, who turns in two great Optimo reworks. The single will see a release on May 28th via Warp Records as well. The band is also announcing a handful of North American tour dates, including an album preview show at Brooklyn’s Glasslands tomorrow, where they’ll be debuting new material from RED NIGHT live for the first time

Of the Andy Stott remix, the band says, “We were listening to Andy Stott’s “Passed Me By” and “We Stay Together” EP’s a lot as we started the record. So many good ideas and textures, with low end in the extreme that kind of rattled our minds a bit. When it came to looking for people to remix, he was first on the list.”

RED NIGHT is a self-produced meditation on separation and reunion, love nearly lost and the long night back to it; a chronicle of late-hour pining awash in digital glow and urban buzzing. Album opener “Empty Stations” begins with a haunting string arrangement that is overtaken by a propulsive rhythm and Eleanore’s spellbinding vocal turns. “Come With Me” guitar stabs, icy keyboard, and polyrhythm underscore the lyrical siren’s call. The heart broken vocal on “Faded” wraps itself around the spiraling bell and fragile arrangements to devastating effect.

The goth R&B monster “Stay the Night” is a tale of yearning with a seductive slowed-down groove. The vast soundscapes of “Lead In The Light” start out sparse and build to an otherworldly climax and then back down again. RED NIGHT is an opportunity to enter the winding tunnels of The Hundred in the Hands’ nocturnal city where time stretches, tempos drop, and guitars plunge rumbling and throbbing out against denser and denser vocals as the story unfolds. The band’s boundary-pushing sound is unafraid to marry minimalism and abstraction with big melodies.

The Hundred In The Hands Announce “Keep It Low” Single, Share MP3

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2012 by E.N.

“Keep It Low” 12” Single Includes 4 Remixes and the B-Side “Mountains”

Free MP3 Download of “Keep it Low” or Stream the Track on YouTube

Don’t Miss The Hundred In The Hands Live at Brooklyn’s Glasslands on May 15th 

The Hundred In The Hands has announced the upcoming release of the “Keep It Low” single from their upcoming album, RED NIGHT. The 12” single is due out May 28 via Warp Records and will include an original B-side, “Mountains” and remixes from Andy Stott, Pattern, and JD Twitch of Optimo who supplies two reworks. The anthemic “Keep it Low” has a driving rhythm that underpins Eleanore Everdell’s seductive and wistful vocal turn and Jason Friedman’s echoing guitars and spiraling atmospherics building the song from its melancholy beginning to a fever pitch.

The Hundred in the Hands chose remixers who have been inspiring them, the band says: “We were listening to Andy Stott’s “Passed Me By” and “We Stay Together” EP’s a lot as we started the record. So many good ideas and textures, with low end in the extreme that kind of rattled our minds a bit. When it came to looking for people to remix, he was first on the list. The legendary Optimo duo have been such an influence on so many artists in recent years, and in maybe too many cases we end up liking their versions a bit more than the originals. We just had to ask. JD Twitch turned in two versions, each unique and equally epic. We couldn’t make up our minds so, we stuck them both on. We’d been hearing bits from Patten and got excited. It’s hallucinatory, uneasy and fractured. Pretty much everything we like. “Mountains” was a track that was written totally in the flow of the album but still just couldn’t fit in, it just wouldn’t play nice with the other tracks and just became its own beast of a thing. This seemed like the best place to let it out.”

After successful showings at two recent VICE events which included the San Francisco installment of the Creator’s Project, the band will debut their new material live for the first time next month in NYC. This Glasslands performance on May 15 will be an opportunity to join The Hundred in the Hands in their own nocturnal city where time stretches, tempos drop, and guitars plunge rumbling and throbbing out against denser and denser vocals as the story unfolds.

The Hundred In The Hands Announce New Album, Red Night(June 12, Warp Records)(Preview)+Stream Faded

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 29, 2012 by E.N.

The Hundred In The Hands 

RED NIGHT

(June 12, Warp Records)

The Hundred In The Hands’ self-titled debut quickly established them as one of the most compelling new acts of the last few years. After touring that album across the globe, the duo consisting of Eleanore Everdell and Jason Friedman, returned to their dimly-lit New York studio to work on their mesmerizing follow-up, RED NIGHT, due out June 12th via Warp Records. RED NIGHT is a self-produced meditation on separation and reunion, love nearly lost and the long night back to it; a chronicle of late-hour pining awash in
digital glow and urban buzzing.

Album opener “Empty Stations” begins with a haunting string arrangement that is overtaken by a propulsive rhythm and Eleanore’s spellbinding vocal turns. “Come With Me” guitar stabs, icy keyboard, and polyrhythm underscore the lyrical siren’s call. The heart broken vocal on “Faded” wraps itself around the spiraling bell and fragile arrangements to devastating effect. The goth RnB monster “Stay the Night” is a tale of yearning with a seductive slowed-down groove. The vast soundscapes of “Lead In The Light” start out sparse and build to an otherworldly climax and then back down again.

“From the start there was a darkness that was coming out both lyrically and sonically, the songs were all heartbreak and fear of losing something special, trying to find that better light.”

RED NIGHT is an opportunity to enter the winding tunnels of The Hundred in the Hands’ nocturnal city where time stretches, tempos drop, and guitars plunge rumbling and throbbing out against denser and denser vocals as the story unfolds. The band’s boundary-pushing sound is unafraid to marry minimalism and abstraction with big melodies. They have recently been playing some of the new material to rapturous audiences at big events including a Vice party in LA at the end of February with Odd Future and Kid Cudi as well as the most recent Creators Project event in San Francisco with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, James Murphy, and Squarepusher.  On RED NIGHT The Hundred in the Hands have created an inimitable world that is sure to be one of this year’s standouts.
