Rental Yields, a Front & Follow release of artist mixes/thefts/borrows is out, benefitting SPIN (Supporting People in Need). As is always the case with the wonderful work from the Front & Follow folks, there’s already been lots of airplay for this one. I was fortunate to reimagine some sounds from The Burning Trestle and you can hear that effort on excellent shows like Resonance FM’s Sonic Imperfections and Tak Tent Radio’s Culture As A Dare.
Surprise, new release! Thrilled to be working with the Gated Canal Community again, this time doing remixes of other artists’ work to benefit SPIN (Supporting People in Need). Rental Yields: Volume One releases on August 3 and includes my reimagining of sounds from The Burning Trestle, and you can listen RIGHT NOW.
It was a big weekend for Orca, Attack!’s new cassingle out on superpolar Taïps.
First up, Avant Music News named You Won’t Remember This a “pick of the week”!
Then, Bill Barnett headed off a new episode of Permutations on WVUD with Side B from the cassingle, “World Map.” The archive is on Mixcloud or below:
The folks from Front & Follow played “You Won’t Remember This” on Reform Radio’s Gated Canal Community Radio show amongst the normal crisp talk; also available om Mixcloud or below.
The Letter UK was listening to Orca, Attack! on April 2.
Out today, Front & Follow’s You Can Never Leave, a compilation of tracks inspired by this very Lynchian advertisement for luxury housing. All proceeds go to Coffee4Craig, which provides vital support for Manchester’s homeless and people in crisis. The lads are also hosting an episode of Gated Canal Community Radio Sunday at 6pm BST / 12pm CST on Reform Radio that will include tracks from the comp as well as music from each of the contributors’ back catalogues.
If you haven’t seen it already, you can watch my track accompanying the ad here. My inspirations were the SNL digital short “Everyone’s A Critic,” Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, and the time I accidentally dumped a lifetime supply of pine nuts into my bag at the Whole Foods bulk dispensers and was too embarrassed not to pay for them, aka ultimate privileged-person-problems.
Loads of new podcasts with Orca, Attack’s! C.M.S.O. on the deck this past couple of weeks:
And there’s an extremely perceptive track-by-track review of the album up on listencorp (we expect nothing less!). My favorite part:
Reaching an ecclesiastical euphoria of harmonies and echoes, the voice doles out thank you’s from the creators of the course. After which things descend into instrumental chaos with glissando notes filling the soundscape, ending the course on an emphatic and almost ornate note tied off with a twinkling swish of pixellated bells at the very end.
Thank you Zaph for playing “Waking Up With A Cat On My Face” from ISOLATION & REJECTION Volume 1 on the newest In Memory of John Peel! There are now FIVE VOLUMES of this excellent compilation available, with proceeds going to The Brick in Wigan so you can feel good about yourself while getting a gazillion fantastic tunes.
Catch the latest In Memory of John Peel on the website or below.
Thanks Kate for another cracking episode of Dark Train on Warminster Community Radio, this one including “Waking Up With A Cat On My Face” from ISOLATION AND REJECTION which is out NOW! Catch Kate’s show, with a guest mix by Darren Giddings, on Mixcloud or below, and buy ISOLATION AND REJECTION Volume 1 on Bandcamp to benefit The Brick in Wigan.
“…a brief liminal outburst like a warped TV ident or the soundtrack of an alarming flashback.”
Aural Aggravation has a very nice review of the ISOLATION AND REJECTION VOL 1 comp up, with these kinds words about my contribution:
Elizabeth Joan Kelly’s ‘Waking Up With a Cat on My Face’ perfectly encapsulates that moment or panic, that abject spasm through a minute and three quarters of swampy discord and sonic confusion.
