Blue Songs(August 16; Moshi Moshi)

“Painted Eyes” MP3 !
US Dates At Identity Festival This Summer

genuine second album coup….Butler now dwells beside James Murphy and Hot Chip as a purveyor of soulful dance music you can think to”
– UNCUT ****
“Like a full-on rock ‘n’ roll lighter anthem, a political piano ballad, a smooth funk song sung by Kele Okereke, etc. It’s an epic offering, one that never buckles beneath the ambition.”
– Stereogum

Hercules and Love Affair’s myth started with the worldwide club smash “Blind”. Their self-titled debut garnered considerable critical and commercial acclaim around the world.  It was named a “Breakthrough Album of the Year” by The New York Times and featured in Pitchfork’s “Top Ten albums of 2008”. The legend continues with their second album Blue Songs. Lead single “My House” is already an international club staple and the new US version has three additional bonus tracks and will come with a bonus remix CD. The album will finally get a US release via Moshi Moshi on August 16th.

On Blue Songs, Hercules’ mastermind Andy Butler has shifted the focus gently away from the New York house and disco forms of the debut; relocating to Denver and recording the album in Vienna with techno producer Patrick Pulsinger. Kim Ann Foxman returns on vocals, and is joined in starring roles by Venezuelan singer Aerea Negrot, fan-turned-collaborator Shaun Wright , Kele Okereke (Bloc Party) and Mark Pistel (Meat Beat Manifesto/Consolidated). Blue Songs sees Butler broaden his musical palette  – “There’s definitely jacking house and there’s definitely even more full-blown disco, but there’s also more experimental, softer music” he explains. Be sure to catch the band on their extensive US tour as part of the Identity Festival to coincide with the release this summer.

Corrugated Tunnel & Antoinette “The Rejection”(Legowelt , Fish Go Deep remixes)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2011 by J.D.

“The Rejection”
Corrugated Tunnel & Antoinette
Process Recordings – PRCS146
Release Date: 11 Jul 2011

Corrugated Tunnel‘s album project “Minor Obsessions” started off last year with the release of “Remedy For My Soul“, graced by the wonderfully souldful voice of Antoinette. The album was received very well, and so were the further singles with remixes from Norman Nodge, Orlando Voorn, Donnacha Costello and Chymera.

It’s now time to round off this album with a final single “The Rejection“, which again features Antoinette, and has an equally impressive set of remixes. For the first remix we travel to The Hague in the Netherlands, home town of Process’ label maestro Herman, but more importantly also that of Legowelt. Danny’s “Casio RZ1 Old School Remix” turns the track into an up-tempo Italian-disco-meets-Chicago track, which rocks on somewhere between Moroder and Rebotini.

For the second remix we travel to Cork, home town of Tunnel man Edwin James himself, but also of Fish Go Deep. Greg and Shane dedicate their remix to the legendary Sir Henry’s club in Cork, where they started their career back in 1992.

Instrumentals of the original, and of the Fish Go Deep remix are part of the package, as is the Accapella

1.The Rejection
2.The Rejection (Legowelt’s Casio RZ1 Old School Remix)
3.The Rejection (Fish Go Deep’s Sir Henry’s ’92 Remix)
4.The Rejection (Instrumental)
5.The Rejection (Fish Go Deep’s Sir Henry’s ’92 Dub)

Also watch out for Edwin’s remix of D:ream‘s new single “Sleepy Head“, due for release this Summer.
