Various bits of news in the absence of a podcast this week……
Master Musicians of Bukkake have unveiled details of a new full-length, the follow-up to their Totemtrilogy. The album is entitled Far West and is set for release in June 2013 through Important Records. There will be a european tour in May and June with UK dates to follow possibly. Here is the opening track:
Pitchfork have premiered a new video for two clips from Colin Stetson’s forthcoming New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light. It icludes an excerpt from “In Mirrors” as well as Justin Vernon-assisted album-opener “And In Truth”. The album will be available in stores on April 29 via Constellation records. I shall be featuring the album next week.
Public Service Broadcasting are set to release their much anticipated debut album Inform – Educate – Entertain on 6 May 2013 on Test Card Recordings, accompanied by a 46-date spring / summer UK tour. Here is the video of the new single Signal 30 which has already been featured on the podcast. They play Sound Control Manchester on May 14th.
Los Angeles’ favorite trance-inducing doom weavers IDES OF GEMINI will release a new 7” entitled Hexagram 45. It is released on Record Store Day April 20th via Magic Bullet Records, Hexagram 45 features two new tracks: “Spectral Queen” and “Darkness At Noon.”
The members of Atlanta-based grindcore trio DEAD IN THE DIRT have completed the writing process for their pending debut LP, and will travel seven hundred miles north, set to record with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) at Bricktop Recording Studio in Chicago this week which will be delivered later in the year as their first full-length release, The Blind Hole. Following their initial 2010-released Vold EP, they caught the attention of Southern Lord, who signed the band immediately for the release of their Fear 7”, and The Blind Hole will see release through the lable later in the year. Here is what they look and sound like live, not the highest fidelity but you can get the sense of it all….nice beard!
