JAMES IHA TO RELEASE SOLO ALBUM
LOOK TO THE SKY ON SEPTEMBER 18th

As a member of A Perfect Circle, the power pop super-group Tinted Windows, and of course, the Smashing Pumpkins, Iha has gathered musical depth and craftsmanship inspired by his many bands as well as his production work with The Sounds, Whiskeytown and Ladytron, to create a new album offering listeners sophisticated pop melodies, lyrical sharpness and guitar driven rock.

Produced by Iha and guitarist Nathan Larson (formerly of beloved indie rockers Shudder to Think) at Iha’s own studio Stratosphere Sound in New York City, the sessions for “Look To The Sky” were designed to create an atmosphere of freedom, experimentation and shared fondness for a variety of enduring genres: from bright, modern rock, to 60s nuggets and cool, clean 80s new wave.

“I wanted this record to be more eclectic and reflect all of my tastes which is why it took so long,” Iha explains. “It was important to me for the record to be multi-dimensional and complex. Being a part of the Smashing Pumpkins, and working with so many other bands and artists since my last album [1998's solo debut 'Let It Come Down'] gave me a fresh perspective on what music could be.”

This free and fun environment attracted friends and peers such as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O and Nick Zinner, Tegan And Sara’s Sara Quin, Fountains Of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger, Antony & the Johnsons and legendary Television guitarist Tom Verlaine

Working with all of these talented people helped the record evolve in great and unexpected ways.
“Look To The Sky” sees Iha returning as a solo artist after nearly a decade and a half, newly inspired, a little wiser and proud to share what he’s learned and created. “I feel like everything should lead up to something and this is a culmination of my journey”

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

“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

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.

Apache Beat -Last Chants +free mp3

Apache Beat  -Last Chants (October 5)
Free Download “Your Powers Are Magic”

Apache Beat have been championed by Pitchfork, NME, NYLON and countless others for the past two years and now their debut is finally upon us. The band has been pummeling stages with everyone from Gossip to Crystal Castles to School of Seven Bells and hinting at what was to come on their full length. Last Chants, produced/mixed by Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans) and also mixed by John Agnello (The Kills, Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth), is a spellbinding collection of songs that are as beautiful as they are dangerous. Its relentless rhythms are off set by labyrinthine melodies to get lost in. The album features contributions from members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Rapture, and Lightspeed Champion.

“Knives” opens the album with its addictive synth line before front woman Ilirjana’s powerhouse voice assaults you. The centerpiece of the album are underground classic single “Tropics”, a tale of heartbreak which first put the band on the map followed by second single “Your Powers Are Magic”. “Nightwaters” is Apache Beat at their most romantic with its gentle melody and tale of a love that wasn’t meant to be. The band bares their teeth on “Fear of Falling” with its escalating drama and aggression. Live favorite “Another Day” ends things with it’s constantly mutating melody and insurmountable walls of distorted guitars and synth drones.

Apache Beat are one of NYC’s most exciting and original bands. Their rhythms are unlike anyone else’s, their songs take risks others wouldn’t and they have the kind of front woman most bands dream about. Last Chants will infiltrate your dreams and you will be better for it.
