Hot off the heels of her tour with Ane Brun, Gemma Ray releases her latest and most ambitious album Island Fire today on Bronze Rat Records. For a taste of the record, and a glimpse into her home turf, Gemma Ray is giving away one of the darker tracks from the album, "Flood And a Fire," together with a previously unseen film: Gemma and band performing said song at rehearsals in the shadowy Bethnal Green Working Men's Club in East London. Here is the video of performance.
Stalight Girls are releasing their debut self titled ep. The duo is presenting the Ep with this amazing video for the song Futterby, and is planning to release a 7” next month with the special featuring of Jamie Stewart of Xiù Xiù. Enjoy
Warp are pleased to announce the signing of Mount Kimbie, the two-piece comprised of Kai Campos and Dom Maker. The duo has released a handful of EPs, as well as the critically acclaimed 2010 full length Crooks & Lovers, and is currently working on their first Warp release. They have previously done several rounds of US shows in 2010 and 2011 which included gigs at SXSW and a performance at Coachella 2011. Kai and Dom set about turning London’s ambience into rhythm, its chaos into coherence. Traces of influence remain – the hard-earned spaces of Burial and The Bug live with the berserk melodrama of Xiu Xiu and Grouper’s sad-eyed glow, D’Angelo’s pervert soul gets cleansed in the intimacy of Phil Elvrum’s Microphones, Angelo Badalamenti’s swollen ‘Twin Peaks’ atmospheres find a cradle in Madlib’s lax lope. Here is the special Tiny Desk Concert, Mont Kimbie played april 18th 2011.
