Montreal-based DJ and electronic artist CFCF (aka Michael Silver) is carrying on from the success of his debut album, Continent, with the release of Drifts. The six-track, remix EP will be released by Paper Bag Digital on June 29th. CFCF has been keeping himself busy since the release of Continent, recently remixing critically-acclaimed artists Owen Pallett and HEALTH. The Montreal native has been creating tracks since his pre-teens and has only begun to present his music publicly in the last couple of years. CFCF’s career began to take off with his contest winning remix of Crystal Castles “Air War” and has followed up with a chain reaction of official remixes for talents such as Sally Shapiro, The Presets, The Teenagers and Hearts Revolution, among many others.

Lou Barlow and his Missingmen kicked off their first US tour at the Casbah in San Diego on June 10th .

Swansongs

June 8th, 2010

I have seen Marc Anthony Thompson AKA Chocolate genius inc. on the HBO original Everyday People acting and singing, playing a role of a street musician and loved what I heard, and started following his career. I have received this mail announcing his new release. Here is a part of the attached bio:

Born in Panama, raised in California, and molded by New York’s music scene. Two solo albums before Cobain took over. A long break, as children are raised and life is truly lived. The creation of Chocolate Genius Inc., an alter ego that quickly transcended such a title. Sound-expanding collaborations with Meshell Ndegeocello, Van Dyke Parks, Doveman, Cibo Matto, 2/3 of Medeski, Martin & Wood, and Thompson’s only constant, Marc Ribot. And then, a seemingly sudden glimpse of high thread counts and private jets on Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions Tour in 2006, followed by an “emotional roller coaster” in Senegal.

And now this: Swansongs, the final chapter in an extended trilogy (see also: 1998’s Black Music, 2001’s Godmusic and Black Yankee Rock released in 2004 ) that’s turned first-person tales into truth-seeking therapy sessions. More than just an exploration of the letter “I”, you know? Or as Thompson puts it, “Gracefully embracing decay is the constant theme. Letting go. The curse of religion. The passion is the poison. That old dilemma—worship and penance; sparkle and fade; bass and trouble.”

The same can be said for every word and note plastered across the pages of Swansongs, an album that ties up the loose ends of Thompson’s never-ending story. Meanwhile, his Chocolate Genius guise shifts ever-so-subtly, as Thompson embraces a simple idea—to “record something I didn’t have to apologize for…a complete listening experience.”

Reluctantly, the book of songs is done,” says Thompson, who also dabbles in sound design and theatre/film scores (American Splendor, Twin Falls Idaho, the Obie-winning A Huey P. Newton Story). “I say reluctantly because I’ll soon have to stare at a blank page again, and greet whatever is next. That’s always the tricky part—by the time music is released, the process usually inspires an entirely new workflow, or has you headed to the road, sofa, beach, airport or bar. At least that’s been my syndrome. Though I write constantly, I release things sporadically at best, and sometimes as quietly as a cough. As Richard Ford says, ‘When a tree falls in the forest, who cares but the monkeys?’


Prince Rama signs to Paw Tracks, readies debut LP for Sept. release

June 7th, 2010

Raised on a Hare Krishna commune in Florida, educated at art school in Boston, and now making noise and living in Brooklyn, Prince Rama are the latest addition to the Paw Tracks roster. Their new album Shadow Temple is an epic shrine of swirling synths, pulsing guitars, and thunder drums. An ethereal chorus of voices and anthemic melodies create a reverb-washed mine of sonic artifacts drawing from southeast Asian rituals, krautrock legacies, chopped and screwed homages, hallucinatory operas, and dance hall psychedelia. Recorded in Kurt Vonnegut’s grandson’s cabin and a 135-year-old haunted church with the help of Animal Collective members Avey Tare and Deakin, Shadow Temple offers itself as a sincere porthole into a mysterious realm that defies material understanding.

CALLmeKAT ANNOUNCES UPCOMING JUNE TOUR DATES

June 7th, 2010

Having recently returned to the states after a European tour, Copenhagen-via-NYC musician CALLmeKAT will be performing several dates in June, including a set of dates at NXNE in Toronto.  Known for her distinctly Scandinavian sound: melancholic, dreamy pop, CALLmeKAT is the moniker of Danish singer, keyboardista and composer Katrine Ottosen. Throughout Europe and Scandinavia, CALLmeKAT has toured as solo headliner as well as opening for notable artists such as Sebastien Tellier, Au Revoir Simone, Okkervil River, The Dø and Nouvelle Vague, amongst others.
 In 2009, CALLmeKAT played numerous critically-acclaimed shows, received an Underground Music Award for “Best Alternative Act,” and was granted one of the Danish Art Council’s prestigious grants for young, talented artists with international ambition and potential. She then made an appearance at the 2010 SXSW Festival, where she was asked to perform a “Tiny Desk SXSW Concert” on NPR‘s All Things Considered. This was followed by a pick on both Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton’s (NPR) “Who We Liked-list” from this year’s SxSW. During the festival, she was also filmed by Yours Tru.ly for an intimate parking lot performance. 
 Living in New York since early 2010, she recently collaborated with Joe Magistro (Prophet Omega) on finishing her international debut When Owls Are Out, which consists of reworked and remixed material from her Scandinavian 2008 release Fall Down, and also brand new recordings.

Check out CALLmeKAT’s video for the single “My Sea,” directed by D.R. Kelley and filmed on location in Los Angeles.

Glass Ghost Premiere “The Same” Video

June 7th, 2010

Glass Ghost represents the birth of a new musical force distilled from myriad influences, from J. Dilla to Deerhoof. The result is something completely refreshing, and fittingly, a little scary. It’s the pairing of Eliot Krimsky’s fragile and haunting falsetto with the group’s bottom-heavy, hip-hop influenced rhythm section that yields the crystalline world propelled by Mike Johnson’s ass-shakin’ beats found on their debut Idol Omen.

The unique world they’ve crafted serves as the perfect vehicle for the album’s paranoid narrative, loosely following the metamorphosis of a modern businessman into some mysterious new form.

The arc of Idol Omen’s tale is revealed in fragments as the detached protagonist wanders, observes, and occasionally interacts, with his surreal, often threatening, environment. While fear, anxiety and delusion effervesce from tracks like “Mechanical Life” and “The Same” the album ebbs and flows from frenzied to fatigued. Alternately, the beautiful and unforgettable “Like a Diamond” invokes reflections of resolute melancholy, while “Divisions” holds listeners captive in the bizarre images of a fever dream. The final track “Ending” provides a sense of release, as an unexplained confluence of events triggers the central character’s eventual mutation and transcendence.
