French Horn Rebellion (Robert and David Perlick-Molinari) kick off 2011 by announcing the US self-release of their debut album The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion on April 19th digitally and May 24th physically (Once Upon A Time Records) and a 27 date North American tour supporting French electro pop outfit Yelle starting 17th April.

Written, produced and mixed by Robert and David, The Infinite Music… is a debut album that warps the fabric of dance, electro, rock and funk and may just turn out to be a contender for this year’s most ambitious, multi-faceted and engaging debut album. Crucially, the album also follows an intergalactic narrative that tracks the physical and emotional journey of an unknown French Horn player. “There is a story running through the album, it’s about the Universe. We’re pretty clear on what the story is, but what you take away from it may be something entirely different,” says David.

The album’s artwork features the sculptures of Portland based artist Meredith Dittmar (www.corporatepig.com) who the band contacted after finding her work on the Internet. Dittmar has exhibited in New York and as far afield as, Mexico City and Istanbul.

On the back of just three EP’s to date, these two unassuming brothers, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have already toured and played with the likes of Hot Chip, Sleigh Bells, The Drums, Cut Copy and SebastiAn and have been tipped by everyone from Q Magazine, The Guardian, Time Out and French music bible Les Inrockuptibles to hometown publications such as The New York Times and NY Daily News.

The Brooklyn-based duo already had an illustrious pedigree; David produced MGMT‘s indie release, Time to Pretend EP for New York indie Cantora Records, and with previous single “Up All Night” they scored a Record of the Week on BBC Radio 1 and an opening slot on the influential Kitsuné Maison compilation series; a big deal for a virtual unknown. The band have also remixed the likes of MEN, Two Door Cinema Club, OMD and Alex Winston, the later resulting in JPlatt of New York producers du jour The Knocks madly tweeting “its like the hottest thing I’ve ever heard”!

Following packed out NYC performances at CMJ, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival and in support to MNDR at the launch of new Neon Gold / Popjustice party POPSHOP, FHR will visit Europe in March for a handful of shows before heading home to play SXSW and then on to Asia for shows in Hong Kong (w/ MGMT), China, Korea and Japan. Their 27 date North American tour supporting Yelle kicks off in Phoenix on 17th April.

The full track listing for The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion (USA version) is:

1. Up All Night
2. This Moment
3. Last Summer
4. Geomancer’s Compass and Other Quasi-Scientific Findings
5. Running Through The Wild
6. The Cantor Meets the Alien
7. What I Want
8. The Void and Fancy Free
9. The Body Electric
10. Broken Heart
11. New Florida
12. Brasilia Girl
13. Mawson’s Peak
14. Antarctica / The Decision

Toddla T – ‘Take It Back (Radio Edit)’ (Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2011 by J.D.

 
The first single to be taken from Toddla T’s forthcoming new album is the brilliant, Soul II Soul-esque ‘Take it Back’ featuring Shola Ama and J2K.

Since the release of his debut in 2009, Toddla has been working non stop on his second album ‘Watch Me Dance’ (Aug 2011). He’s been busy writing and recording in Sheffield, London and Jamaica, slotting in sessions between his mind-numbing DJ schedule and Radio 1 DJ slots.

In ensuring ‘Watch Me Dance’ was everything Toddla envisaged it could be he’s carefully selected an impressive line up of friends, peers and musical icons to guest vocal, co-produce, remix, co-write with him on the album. Names including previous collaborator Roots Manuva, fellow DJ, producer and remixer Skream, Ms Dynamite, Ross Orton, Wayne Marshall, Donaeo, Roisin Murphy and of course Shola Ama.

Remixes of ‘Take It Back’ will come from The 2 Bears, Dillion Francis, D1, Des Demure and DJ Q. – completing the re-introduction to our boy Toddla as he prepares to stamp his mark all over summer 2011.

Released by: Ninja Tune
Release/catalogue number: ZEN12285
Release date: May 23, 2011

‘Take It Back (Radio Edit) is available now from the Ninjashop and iTunes:

Tickets £39.50
http://www.fielddayfestivals.com

Field Day is ecstatic to reveal further names for what is shaping to be the most exhilarating music festival of the summer. After the sun drenched success of last year’s show, Field Day’s promoters vowed to up the musical ante yet again for this year’s event and the world’s most sonically adventurous artists have signed up to perform. Having already announced a plethora of artists including Wild Beasts, Tortoise, John Cale, Jamie XX, James Blake and Warpaint, the next wave are set to push musical limits to the boundaries

Villagers released one of the stand out albums of 2010 and they perform tracks from it at Field Day. Conor O’Brien’s enchanting melodies and darkly poetic lyrics are given greater intensity in the electric intimacy of his live performances and Villagers bring depth, sincerity and beauty in abundance to Victoria Park.

Field Day are thrilled to announce an exclusive performance from Detroit house music pioneer and dance music legend Carl Craig who as part of his 20 years of Planet E imprint will be performing a set of his 69 material live. This is a UK exclusive and the set is being performed in four cities worldwide this year. Expect sublime tracks like ‘Desire’, the frenetic ‘Jam The Box’ or the contents of 4 Jazz Funk Classics staged in front of a retina popping stage show.

One third of dub step super group, Magnetic Man, Benga is the toast of the genre is set to drop some shuddering, bass heavy gems on the east London massive alongside cohort Youngman. Field Day welcomes back Erol Alkan for a party set of energetic, trashy disco blended with electro beats, new romantic rhythms and the spirit of 70’s punk, 80’s rock and 90’s house.

Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) and James Holden have decided to unleash some serious sonic wizardry on Field Day by playing an exclusive back to back set. Kieran’s glorious, abstract sets incorporate elements of hip hop, electronica, techno, jazz and folk whilst James Holden’s adventurous, progressive electronic sounds have marked him out as the leading British techno sorcerer and psychadelic shamen. Expect much musical merriment.

Ultra hip Brooklyn duo Creep are garnering much acclaim at the moment having just released a single featuring guest vocals from the xx’s Romy Madley-Croft whilst there is a rare chance to get up close and personal with Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio, who will be performing one of his infamous DJ sets.

Warp Record’s Canadian indie kids Born Ruffians bring much uplifting exuberance whilst hotly tipped Cloud Control are recent winners of the Australian Music Prize, the antipodean equivalent of the Mercury Music Prize. Swedish band Junip boast Jose Gonzales amongst their number and make a welcome return to the live music scene after a five year hiatus and female duo 2:54 showcase their melancholic, sepia tinged desert rock

Field Day are delighted to announce a partnership with Australia’s most credible music festival Laneway. Field Day promoted a stage at Laneway in January 2011 and was keen to reciprocate by inviting Laneway to do the same in August.

Danny Rogers, co-promoter of the Laneway Festival says: “Field Day London and the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival have much in common and pride themselves on being leaders in presenting the highest calibre acts to their respective markets, often before they’ve broken. We are proud that we are committed to the same goals, ethos and ideals as such an awesome festival like Field Day and are ecstatic to be a part of something that is doing truly great things”

Field Day promoter Tom Baker comments, “I am super excited about Field Day now, the line up is so, so good I can’t really believe it. I don’t know what I am going to do on the day, there are just too many good acts to see and some exclusives like the Kieran Hebden back to back set with James Holden and Carl Craig presents 69 just can’t be missed”.

With more artists to be announced as well as details of the Village Mentality area Field Day raises the bar once again in its quest to bring you the very best in sonic entertainment.
