Baba Ali – This House EP

BABA ALI RELEASES NEW EP THIS HOUSELISTEN

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE ‘SHAME BLUES’ OUT NOW

EP Cover Front

 

 

UK-via-NYC artist Baba Ali makes his debut on 30th Century Records with the release of his genre-bending new EP This House, available to stream and download now. 

‘Shame Blues’ is the first song Baba Ali wrote for the EP and his playful mediation on the concept of shame; it is the follow up to his breakout track ‘House’ which saw him A-listed on BBC 6Music and added to a slew of summer festivals.

Watch Shame Blues

“This House marks a point of evolution in my songwriting”, says Baba Ali. “There’s more grit and attitude to the sound, which reflects my recent experiences and what I’ve observed out in the world. What’s remained is the perspective I write from, and I’ve toyed with the balance between playing the journalist and being the jester.”

Listen to This House EP

Born in New York, Baba Ali was previously part of the future-soul duo Voices of Black, before moving to the UK to undertake a masters degree in fine art at Goldsmiths. He released his debut solo Nomad EP in 2017 and tours with the likes of Gold Panda, Shigeto, Kele Okereke and Jonny Greenwood’s Junun project followed.

A new set of music, recorded with The Kills’ Jamie Hince in LA, found their way to acclaimed artist-producer Brian Burton, AKA Danger Mouse, who made Baba the latest signing to his 30th Century Records label.

Those songs became the four-track This House EP – a perfect entry point to what Baba Ali has to offer. Opening track and previous single ‘House’ provides the launching point for Ali and Hince’s collaboration – the spiky, swaggering single broke down all the walls and allowed the floodgates to open for the remainder of the project. ‘Cirque de Bizarre’ elaborates on a melody that was locked inside Ali’s head since he was a teenager. With the help of Hince, he was finally able to crack the code and unleash the hook-laden track. ‘El Dorado’ ties together the bluesy tones within the EP while adding in more experimental elements. It is, as Ali puts it, “an apt way to close out the EP with an eye on the future.”

St Francis Hotel Feat. Portugal. The Man – Milkshake

ST FRANCIS HOTEL
‘MILKSHAKE’
FEAT. PORTUGAL. THE MAN

LISTEN / DOWNLOAD HERE

SFH LP ARTWORK

‘Milkshake’ follows the duo’s latest single ‘The Truth Is Dead’, which was featured across BBC Radio 6 Music,
NME, The Line Of Best Fit and more. The track is the latest to be taken from their upcoming debut
album We Fall Together, out on the 27th January 2020, which includes collaborations with Gaz
Coombes, Warpaint’s Theresa Wayman, Max Rad, and Waterstrider, and more.

The song was written with Portugal. The Man, who perform the vocals, and The Clash’s Mick Jones, who plays lead guitar.

Inspired by old school Hip-Hop and Soul, the track’s delicate groove, intricate piano and guitar melodies combine
to create a lo-fi jam reminiscent of 70s Shuggie Otis. The track is highlighted by Portugal. The Man’s recognizable vocals, whose cynical lyrics are inspired by the rise of ‘milkshaking’ right-wing politicians in recent times.

“When Danger Mouse called me up and introduced me to the St Francis Hotel guys, I was excited because I rarely get a song from someone else that I feel like I can easily sing on” says Portugal. The Man’s John Gourley. “I had been seeing a lot of news stories about big tough dudes in black shirts being terrified of milkshakes so I thought it would be a good subject to sing about”

As producers, St Francis Hotel recent production / collaborations include Michael Kiwanuka, Arcade Fire’s Regine Chassagne, and Art School Girlfriend.

Alexandra Savior – The Archer

ALEXANDRA SAVIOR
SHARES NEW ALBUM
THE ARCHER
LISTEN TO THE ARCHER HERE

“Portland’s mystery girl (VICE)” may no longer be a kept secret, but Alexandra Savior can never be fully figured out. However, she’s down a lot of growing up in the past few years and this shines through as she shares her sophomore album, The Archer, today, January 10, via 30th Century Records.
Billboard, who exclusively premiered her album, says she is “more empowered and focused than she was before,” and also that “she acknowledges there’s an intentional #MeToo aspect to many of the new songs… Savior also struggled through an abusive personal relationship that she says many of The Archer’s songs are about.”
In her own words, Savior explains, saying:
“I think I went through a period of time where I was very innocent and I was being taken advantage of by a lot of manipulative forces in my life… I was very young and naive when I first left home and came into the music industry. I think I was prey for a lot of those sort of characters to come in and control what I was doing. I never felt I was being seen for who I was; I was being seen for what they could push me into and what was most sellable.
It was only when I was rejected by those forces when I began to have a voice… I wrote from a place of being rejected and confused, insecure and angry and depressed. But I was writing about me, and I think creatively there was a weight lifted off of me and I feel like so much has opened up to me. I think I have a lot less anxiety in general now.”
The Archer, which was produced by Sam Cohen, often known as a fan of collaboration, most recently teaming up with Kevin Morby for his Oh My God album. On working with Savior, Cohen says, “It’s really a joy to work with someone who’s got such a strong sense of melody and also such a strong sense of what she wants stylistically.”
Ladygunn says, “Savior has a unique voice that veers away from the cookie cutter pop that is dominating the mainstream right now.” The new album showcases that standout vocality Savior is now known for, and also weaves a bittersweet story together with clever wordplay and broodingly beautiful layers of melody.
Savior’s debut record, Belladonna of Sadness, was written in collaboration with Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and NME says, “Savior continues to build on that bold arrival and is becoming a star in her own right.” Her new album shows that not only does her voice stand alone, but that her musicality stands alone, too.
Savior recently announced her 2020 North American tour dates, which will bring her mesmerizing live show to Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles, CA, San Diego, CA and New York, NY in February. Fans can hear the “striking and smoky vocals [that] belong solely to Savior (NME)” and these new picturesque melodies live. Tickets are on sale now. For more information, head to Alexandra Savior’s website: alexandrasavior.com.

St Francis Hotel feat. TT – The Truth is Dead

LISTEN HERE

St Francis Hotel are an Irish duo based in London. Their new single ’The Truth Is Dead’ is being released on 26th November 2019 via 30th Century Records. The band wrote the song with Carla Azar (Autolux), with vocals from Theresa Wayman (WarpaintTT).

The track appears on the Danger Mouse curated 30th Century Records Volume 2, to be released on December 6th. An unreleased Danger Mouse / Sparklehorse collaboration featuring MF Doom was released from the compilation last week.

’The Truth Is Dead‘ follows the duo’s critically acclaimed single ‘Liar, Liar, Liar (feat. Gaz Coombes)’ and is the latest to be taken from their upcoming debut album We Fall Together (Jan 2020), which includes collaborations with Portugal. The ManMax Rad, and Waterstrider, with more names to be announced.

The track’s title is probably pretty self-explanatory as to what it’s about. It feels like the kind of song that could only be written now. If you put the four of us in a room together four years ago, we probably couldn’t have conceived this song. Hopefully in a year’s time people won’t need to write songs with titles like ’The Truth Is Dead’”.

As producers, St Francis Hotel recent production / collaborations include Michael KiwanukaArcade Fire’s Regine Chassagne, and Art School Girlfriend.

30th Century Volume 2 features highlights from the label’s 2019 releases including Adam Green, The Babe Rainbow, Sam Cohen, Big Search and Husky Loops, plus music by new signings 20-year-old Los Angeles native Poppy Jean Crawford, New Yorker Baba Ali and Portland’s Alexandra Savior.

  4. Alexandra Savior – Howl
  5. Grandaddy – Bison on the Plains

Alexandra Savior – Howl

archer cover

“Portland’s mystery girl (VICE)” may no longer be a kept secret, but Alexandra Savior can never be fully figured out. Today, she shares “HOWL,” the last single from her forthcoming album, The Archer, which will be released via 30th Century Records and announces the LP’s release date: January 10, 2020. Speaking about the new single, Alexandra Savior says: “I originally wrote “HOWL” as a simple piece of poetry featured on an experimental sound tape that I created on my four-track recorder a few years ago. I never had any intention of releasing “HOWL” or any of the other pieces from that tape. But over time, I kept revisiting “HOWL” naturally, and continued to build a narrative. Consequence of Sound, who debuted the single and video, said: “If new single “Howl” represents that reclaimed autonomy, Savior has really hit the mark with The Archer. Dubious synthesizers creep along a slinking bass line, instilling the track with an eerie sense of steely caution. “Handsome dictator of my crimes/ I can’t tell if they’re yours/ I can’t tell if they’re mine,” sings Savior, slowly picking apart a manipulative relationship. Despite the sensual insecurity of the track, there’s a supreme confidence in its execution, a winning example of the Portland-based musician’s talent.” Nina Ljeti, who fronts the LA-based band Kills Birds, directed the music video for “HOWL,” which was shot in LA. Savior and Ljeti spoke to Consequence of Sound about the song and video, citing their inspirations. Savior noted that her Tascam 4-track recorder played a major role, as did Humbert, Humbert, the narrator of “Lolita” — especially in the context of psychological manipulation. Savior says: Humbert, Humbert, the narrator of “Lolita” is a reference for me because of his ability to characterize Lolita in a way that rationalizes his own desire for a child. In a manipulative relationship, it is oftentimes difficult to see whom the perpetrator is and who the victim is, I wanted to relay that confusion from the perspective of the young woman. Ljeti channeled influences such as Harold and Maude (“particularly the sequences where Harold stages these elaborate death scenes as a way of coping with the world around him. There is obviously a dark humor to that, which we applied to the video,” says Ljeti), Laurel Nakadate, “Suspiria,” every Paul Thomas Anderson movie ever. Ladygunn says, “Savior has a unique voice that veers away from the cookie cutter pop that is dominating the mainstream right now.” The new album showcases that standout vocality Savior is now known for, and also weaves a bittersweet story together with clever wordplay and broodingly beautiful layers of melody. Savior’s forthcoming, sophomore album, The Archer, which was produced by Sam Cohen, often known as a fan of collaboration, most recently teaming up with Kevin Morby for his Oh My God album. On working with Savior, Cohen says, “It’s really a joy to work with someone who’s got such a strong sense of melody and also such a strong sense of what she wants stylistically.” Savior’s debut record, Belladonna of Sadness, was written in collaboration with Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and NME says, “Savior continues to build on that bold arrival and is becoming a star in her own right.” Her new album shows that not only does her voice stand alone, but that her musicality stands alone, too.

Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse Feat. MF Doom

Print

“Ninjarous” is a never before released song by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse featuring MF Doom. The song is available now and also features Patrick Carney on drums. Listen to “Ninjarous” HERE
 
“Ninjarous” is a product of the prolific relationship between Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and the late Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse). Danger Mouse was inspired to release “Ninajarous” by his memories of Linkous’s particular affection for the song. 
 
“Mark and I worked on a lot of music together,” Danger Mouse recalls.  “But the song we did with MF DOOM was always one of Mark’s favorites. He’d kept on me to put it out, so I’m happy to pay tribute to him by getting it out there.”
 
Prior to “Ninjarous,” Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse’s creative partnership was documented by the 2010 album Dark Night of the Soul, which featured The Flaming Lips, Iggy Pop, Julian Casablancas, James Mercer, and Suzanne Vega, with visuals by David Lynch. 
 
While Dark Night of the Soul was completed, and unofficially released before Linkous’s untimely passing, he did not survive to see its official release.
 
“Ninjarous” will appear on 30th Century Volume 2, the second installment of the label’s compilation series curated by Danger Mouse, the details of which are forthcoming.

Upcoming live performance
November 19th at The Bootleg in Los Angeles
Portland’s mystery girl (VICE)” may no longer be a kept secret, but Alexandra Savior can never be fully figured out. She wears many colored hats, quite literally, as she explores a lighthouse, in her brand new video for the title track to her forthcoming album, The Archer, out now on Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records.
Today, Savior also announces her 2020 North American tour dates, which will bring her mesmerizing live show to Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY in February. Tickets will be on-sale on Wednesday, October 30th.
Describing her album’s title track and latest release, Savior says:
“I wrote “The Archer” on Christmas Eve as a gift for a lover. At the time, my perception was that I was writing a song about how it feels to love someone, but now when I listen back to “The Archer”, I realize that I was writing an observation of a psychologically unhealthy relationship, from the perspective of someone who is unconsciously aware that she is being emotionally mistreated. In 2017, I filmed the Super 8 video for “The Archer” in Port Townsend, WA with artist Alexandria Saleem. The lighthouse and the grim December sky, represented to me the isolation I felt during that time in my relationship.”
Ladygunn says, “Savior has a unique voice that veers away from the cookie cutter pop that is dominating the mainstream right now.” New single, “The Archer,” showcases that standout vocality Savior is now known for, and also weaves a bittersweet story together with clever wordplay and broodingly beautiful layers of melody.
“The Archer” is the third single from Savior’s forthcoming, sophomore album, The Archer, which was produced by Sam Cohen, often known as a fan of collaboration, most recently teaming up with Kevin Morby for his Oh My God album. On working with Savior, Cohen says, “It’s really a joy to work with someone who’s got such a strong sense of melody and also such a strong sense of what she wants stylistically.”
Savior’s debut record, Belladonna of Sadness, was written in collaboration with Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and NME says, “Savior continues to build on that bold arrival and is becoming a star in her own right.” Her new album shows that not only does her voice stand alone, but that her musicality stands alone, too.
Along with Savior’s newly announced tour dates, a previously announced, special live performance will take place on November 19 at The Bootleg in Los Angeles. Fans can hear the “striking and smoky vocals [that] belong solely to Savior (NME)” and these new picturesque melodies live.

BIO
It all started with a feeling of relief. Just after midnight on New Year’s Eve, Alexandra Savior, who was six months out of a rocky relationship and appreciating her independence, sat down and wrote the song that would become “Crying All the Time.” The melodic, heart-rending ballad, she says, “is about how it feels to be in a relationship with a person who’s disappointed in you,” but it’s also a clarion call announcing the arrival of her sophomore album, The Archer, out DATETK. The dreamy, melancholy song, the first single from The Archer, feels at once classic and contemporary; it’s a torch song for a new generation.
“There’s depression and there’s heartbreak,” Savior says of the album’s themes, which play out over 10 haunting tracks. “But each song represents a different emotional state. I tried to project some sort of strength; I wrote during a time when I was a young woman growing into my identity and developing my confidence, and I hope that comes through.”
Her message gets across loud and clear. Tracks like “Crying All the Time” and “Saving Grace” are big songs—ambitious and atmospheric—that put Savior’s ethereal voice and sharp writing on display. “It came from a place of anger,” she says of “Saving Grace,” the album’s writhing second single. “I had gone through a breakup and people kept telling me it was a saving grace, and I found it ironic because I was so heartbroken.” In some of the songs, Savior’s emotions unfold like thunderstorms and envelop everything going on around them. Other numbers, like “Soft Currents,” feel quiet and more intimate, like a whispered secret nobody was meant to hear.
And while Savior shoulders the responsibility for the lion’s share of her output herself, writing her own songs, creating the artwork for her album’s cover, and even filming her own videos, The Archer was created with an indispensable set of collaborators who helped harness her vision. Its Savior’s first release on 30th Century Records, the label run by her friend and collaborator Danger Mouse, and was produced by Sam Cohen, who’s best known for his work with artists like Kevin Morby and Benjamin Booker. “It’s really a joy to work with someone who’s got such a strong sense of melody and of what she wants stylistically,” Cohen says. “It was amazing to go into her world of 1960s B-movie love stories; Alexandra had a vision that really spoke to me.”
Of course, he wasn’t the first to appreciate her talent. The Oregon native first gained industry attention in 2012 when she posted a cover of Angus Stone’s “Big Jet Plane” on YouTube. The playful, haunting performance landed her a legion of influential fans—she ended up songwriting with Linda Perry, who compared her to Fiona Apple—and put her on the road toward releasing her debut album, 2017’s Belladonna of Sadness, which was written in tandem with the Arctic Monkey’s Alex Turner and produced by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford. Pitchfork praised the album, saying, “Savior has a penchant for clever wordplay and a voice that can hypnotize, terrorize, or both,” and the Guardian swooned for Savior’s “preternatural self-possession” and “crystalline, intimate voice.”
Still, with The Archer, Savior says, “I felt like I needed to establish my own voice and show my independence again.” A listen to the new album will prove that she’s done that, and then some. It’s not only the establishment of a voice, but a showcase for an extraordinary talent at the peak of her power. She’s already at work writing songs for what will be her next release.

Faux Ferocious – No Pressure

FAUX FEROCIOUS RELEASE NEW 7-INCH PRODUCED BY PATRICK CARNEY OF THE BLACK KEYS

“NO PRESSURE” PREMIERING NOW ON BILLBOARD!

“…another exceptional dose of stoned to the bones motorik psych and jittery punk…” –Post-Trash

“…gutsy, bracing psychedelic punk…” –Nashville Scene

“Hairy hypnotic rock ‘n’ roll that will still slap you into a pause. The best kind.” Aquarium Drunkard

October 1, 2019 — Today, Nashville based kraut-punk project Faux Ferocious releases the follow-up to their 2019 Burger Records full length, Pretty Groovy, with a vicious new 7-inch. The project was produced by Patrick Carney of the Black Keys and engineered by Marc Whitmore in Nashville, TN at Carney’s studio, Audio Eagle Studio. “No Pressure” is the second track to be released and is premiering now on Billboard.
These singles are the perfect follow up to Pretty Groovy as Faux Ferocious continues to evolve their motorik post-punk sound and walk the line between experimental and reachable. The songs have a natural flow and uncluttered lyrics where nothing hides behind walls of reverb and delay. Each part of the music is good enough to stand on its own, but the totality is bizarrely exceptional.

Faux Ferocious’s new 7″ inch is out now.

Broken Bells – Good Luck

Broken Bells (Danger Mouse and James Mercer), have released their newest song “Good Luck.”

BB_GOODLUCK_HiRESlayer 3000

Listen:: https://brokenbells.lnk.to/GoodLuck 

Much like last year’s “as adventurous as always” (Stereogumstandalone single “Shelter,” “Good Luck” bears the unmistakable sonic signature of Broken Bells unveiled on 2010’s eponymous debut and 2014’s After The Disco—in other words, the instantly recognizable audible fingerprints of both Mercer and Burton melded into something entirely other. As with neo-classic Broken Bells tracks including “The High Road” and “Holding On For Life,” “Good Luck” is completed by deceptively apocalyptic sonic and lyrical imagery that is actually more rooted in present day reality than any dystopian future.

In other news, it can now be confirmed that Mercer and Burton have reconvened in the studio and are hard at work on a third Broken Bells album.  No release date has been set for this first collection of new Broken Bells material since 2014.

“As with ‘Shelter,’ we wanted to release ‘Good Luck’ while it felt timely and reflective of specific discussions between the two of us, questioning the state of things, as we do…”

Engine Of Paradise Out Today, Sept. 6th, Graphic Novel War And Paradise Out Today Sept. 6th

Free PDF Of Graphic Novel War and Paradise Available From AdamGreen.Info

LISTEN & SHARE: Adam Green – Engine Of Paradise LP

Adam Green has released his new LP ‘Engine of Paradise’ today along with a new comic book styled music video for the title track. When talking about the LP Adam says: ‘Engine of Paradise’ is some soil to plant yourself in.  It’s a place to relax, like being in a movie theater, where the players are jewelers of melodic time.  My graphic novel, “War of Paradise”, is a companion to the album and also out today for FREE to download from AdamGreen.info, and hard copies are available to order through PioneerWorks.Org!

Exploring the same themes as the upcoming album, Green is also releasing his first graphic novel, a psychedelic war epic called “War and Paradise” set in the colorful universe of his film “Adam Green’s Aladdin.”  The graphic novel will be released concurrently with the album.

Adam Green is an artistic polymath — a songwriter, filmmaker, visual artist, and poet. As part of New York’s downtown antifolk scene at the end of the nineties, Green made up one half of The Moldy Peaches, who later enjoyed mainstream success via the 2007 Grammy-winning Juno soundtrack. As a solo artist, Green has recorded 10 albums, many of which have become cult hits. His songs have been performed by artists as diverse as The Libertines, Carla Bruni, Kelly Willis, Dean & Britta, and Will Oldham. His 2005 record Gemstones went Gold in Europe.

Green’s paintings and sculptures have been the subject of exhibitions in America, Asia and Europe, including a 2016 solo-show at the prestigious Fondation Beyeler Museum in Basel, Switzerland. Green first combined his visual aesthetic, psychedelic writings and musical compositions in the The Wrong Ferarri (2010), the first feature film shot entirely on an iPhone. The “screwball tragedy” was described by Rolling Stone magazine as “Fellini on Ketamine” and went on to feature in the curriculum of NYU’s Tisch Film School.

His second feature film, Adam Green‘s Aladdin (2016) — an immersive fantasy film starring Macaulay Culkin, Natasha Lyonne, Alia Shawkat, Jack Dishel and Francesco Clemente and shot entirely on papier-mache sets — was described by Buzzfeed.com as “the trippiest movie ever made,” while RogerEbert.com called Aladdin “a movie that belongs inside a museum.”  An instant cult hit, the movie was screened theatrically in a midnight movie context, at over a hundred of Green’s concerts around the world, as well as the Andy Warhol Museum in Philadelphia.

After first publishing a bilingual volume of his poetry with Suhrkamp Verlag, Green’s newest book War and Paradise is a graphic novel that combines his lyrical and visual vocabulary. The satirical war epic is about the clash of humans with machines, the meeting of spirituality with singularity, and the bidirectional relationship between life and the afterlife.  Green’s 10th solo album, Engine of Paradise, is a musical exploration of these same themes. Recorded in Brooklyn, New York, by Loren Humphrey, the forthcoming album reimagines the baroque orchestral style of his early 2000s era records and features performances by James Richardson (MGMT), Florence Welch (Florence and the Machine) and Jonathan Rado (Foxygen).
