Ki:Theory Teams Up With Holy Fuck, Release “Holiday Heart” Single MP3!

Ki:Theory (a.k.a. Joel Burleson) is a recording artist and producer who walks the tightrope between electronic and indie/alternative rock. Ki:Theory has also lent his adventurous sound  to remixes for Daft Punk, Queens of the Stone Age, Ladytron, and Brazilian Girls among others. Having already rocked Bonnaroo and djed for Betsey Johnson’s during NYC fashion week, Ki:Theory has returned to the studio to work on new material. Today, May 24, he has released the single for “Holiday Heart.” For the B-side, he teamed up with Holy Fuck for a remix of UNKLE’s track “Natural Selection” which features The Black Angels.

Check out the “Holiday Heart” MP3  HERE!

“Holiday Heart” has a bright vocal melody, skittering beat, and an instantly memorable hook with something a little darker brewing beneath the surface. “(Holiday Heart) is actually a medical condition you get when you’ve been hitting the whiskey and summer sausage a little too hard (commonly around the holidays).  I’ve always thought it makes a great metaphor for ‘to much of a good thing.”, explains Burleson. The b-side is an Olympian collaboration between Ki:Theory, UNKLE, Holy Fuck, and The Black Angels. “Natural Selection” is such a great song to start.  I’m a huge fan of UNKLE, The Black Angels, and Holy Fuck. I did a remix for UNKLE once before [2007’s “Hold My Hand”], so getting asked to contribute to something all these great artists had collaborated on was just phenomenal.  Holy Fuck had already laid some really nice textures and ambient soundscapes for the remix so getting in there with big drums and some leads seemed like a cool direction.”, says Burleson.
Ki:Theory has also recently contributed a remix of Daft Punk’s “The Son of Flynn” to Daft Punk/Tron: Legacy remix album “Reconfigured”. His song “Arms for Legs” is also featured alongside Sleigh Bells and Silversun Pickups in the trailer for John Singleton’s new film “Abduction”. This month, his remix of  the song “Angelica” is also featured on  the “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” soundtrack by Rodrigo y Gabriela with Hans Zimmer.

Alain Johannes Gets New Release Date For Solo Debut -“Spark” October 5th on Joshua Homme’s +Free MP3

Alain Johannes Gets New Release Date For Solo

Debut, Spark

 Album to be Released October 5th  on Joshua Homme’s
Rekords Rekords

Click HERE to Download “Endless Eyes” MP3

Fresh off his latest run of shows playing guitar for Them Crooked Vultures, and currently on a tour of Europe to include appearances at Reading and Leeds festivals, Alain Johannes is getting ready to release his solo debut, Spark (Rekords Rekords/ Ipecac Recordings), which has the new release date of October 5th.  With a resume that includes co-founding the band Eleven and collaborations with Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Chris Cornell, Mark Lanegan, and Spinnerette (Brody Dalle’s latest project) among numerous others, Alain Johannes has already established himself as a gifted and prolific musical talent.  However, Sparkis where Johannes’ strengths as a songwriter, vocalist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist are finally showcased all at once.
Queens of the Stone Age/Them Crooked Vultures frontman Joshua Homme, whose label Rekords Rekords will co-release Spark with Ipecac Recordings, says: Alain’s record is the total embodiment of what the label stands for—the war against endorsing mediocrity and the uncensored attempt to take a leap off the musical cliff.  Spark is a stunning examination of figuring out what you do when someone’s gone, and it’s utterly breathtaking.”
Spark opens with “Endless Eyes,” a beautiful flurry of cigar box guitars churning out layers of highly rhythmic riffs.  Johannes’ soulful vocals soar on top, creating a mystical, eastern-flavored sound.  The track is an ode to Natasha Shneider, Johannes’ late wife and creative partner.  After she passed away in 2008, Queens of the Stone Age organized an all-star benefit show in Los Angeles to celebrate Shneider’s life.  Johannes composed “Endless Eyes” specifically for the show, and the song ended up settling the wheels in motion for what would become Spark.
From beginning to end, the album showcases the remarkable technical precision and versatility that has made Johannes such an in-demand guitar player.  Spark also reveals him to be far more than a rock guitarist, with elements of classical, flamenco, and Indian music displayed throughout.  Tying it all together is his ability to craft melodies ripe with nuance, which is what truly makes each of the eight tracks captivating and emotionally resonant.
