Watch: Yoshimi – “Hidden In Concrete”

News Senza categoria

Walking around town at night with the dog feels like the pinnacle of mystery hunting. Going through areas and alleys I typically don’t. Finding new tags on trains that I never ride. Exploring the unknown. Yoshimi’s new video for “Hidden In Concrete ” not only clarifies this desire to seek anew through curious navigation, but the song itself implores a clever appeal of serendipity to it through echoing flutes percussion’d by chimes faintly feeling the background of space as reversed loops siren mantras that hypnotize while by bouncing around listeners’ skull interiors. A graceful poise reflected by intentional resonance harmonizing like Thai Chi does one’s core cell. “Hidden In Concrete ” almost feels like an IRL glitch where you get stuck behind a wall, but can move everywhere in the map, getting into locations you’ve only been able to experience at a distance. I’m also watching The Holy Mountain right now, so listening to Yoshimi’s whole new album Tokyo Restricted Area on Dream Catalogue is fleeking me out. Listen!

Raime announce new LP, share new single, play some shows, all with their characteristically effortless sense of existential dread

News Senza categoria


Dang, guys. It’s been a MINUTE now since the London-based, gloomy, drone-y, dirge-y, quasi-industrial, brood-music master-duo Raime unleashed their howling Quarter Turns Over A Living Line, and I’m ashamed to admit that, during the interim, I’d almost forgotten how scary and dreadful life on planet earth is on a daily basis.

THANKFULLY, though, here they come again to remind me! The band’s spooky second album, titled Tooth, is due to arrive June 10 via Blackest Ever Black. Touting a tighter and more single-minded obsession with “urgent and focused futurism” than its sprawling predecessor, the album features eight “fiercely uptempo, minimal, meticulously crafted electro-acoustic rhythm tracks” — available for pre-order on double LP, CD, and digital at this very moment — that are sure to have us all feeling doomed again in to time flat.

“If Quarter Turns was an album that confronted total loss and self-destruction, even longed for it, then Tooth is the sound of resistance and counter-attack: cunning, quick, resolute; calling upon stealth as much as brute-force,” reads the press release. “No let-up, no hesitation. Needlepoint guitar, deftly junglist drum programming, brooding synths and lethal sub-bass drive the engine.” But because — let’s face it — we’re not really any good at picturing what that all sounds like for ourselves, the duo has also decided to grace us with the album’s first single, “Dead Heat,” which we can practice nervously sweating-to down below.

They’re also playing a few shows around the UK coming up, just to help reawaken the public’s general capacity for angst about the future. And right on time, too! I mean, Thank GOODNESS; I honestly can’t wait to press play on this thing and get back into the swing of eking out a day-to-day existence in the pale shadow of a nameless and subtle but palpable terror. It’s been too long, friends.

Tooth tracklisting:

01. Coax
02. Dead Heat
03. Hold Your Line
04. Front Running
05. Dialing In, Falling Out
06. Glassed
07. Cold Cain

♫ Listen: Seth Graham – “Live At Experimedia 041616”

News Senza categoria


 

This past Saturday, the ecclectic Kent, Ohio based label and record store to the stars, Experimedia, hosted a small group of underground sound manglers at their headquarters for an afternoon of live music. If you weren’t there, you missed out. Big time. That is, I think you did. I guess I don’t really know. I wasn’t there either.

But wait! For those of you who did miss out (I’m looking at you, me), Experimedia overlord Jeremy Bible captured the day’s noises and posted those bad boys up on the web. Phew!

Amongst the day’s participants was TMT favorite and fifth grade spelling bee champ, Seth Graham. For his short set, Seth pushed around an aural brush, sweeping together scraps of classical, avant-garde, vocal exercises, footwork-inspired skitters, and much more into a terrific, condenced pile. Wait, that sounds bad. His music isn’t a “pile”. Scratch that analogy.

Anywho, listen to his entire set below, check out the other acts from that day here, and be on the lookout for a long-in-the-making interview with Seth on this very website, soon.
