NEW ALBUM RELEASE FOR DAVID GRUBBS

Blue Chopsticks has just announced that David Grubbs’s new album Creep Mission (LP/CD/DL) will be released on September 22. If “mission creep” refers to a long-haul fatigue cited with increasingly regularity in the present political moment, David Grubbs imagines “creep mission” to be a talismanic utterance in the effort to turn this ship around.

Creep Mission is an album of instrumental compositions with Grubbs’s effortlessly recombinant electric guitar at its core, and its m.o. is to go both deep and wide. The album goes deep in the sense that the guitar becomes the relentless, meditative focus of these songs without words, and it goes wide in that these pieces utilize a discontinuous set of arrangements that make the most out of an extraordinary group of musicians convened for the mission at hand.

Drummer and most simpatico sparring partner Eli Keszler picks up where his brilliant contributions to Grubbs’s 2016 Prismrose left off; trumpeter Nate Wooley defies you to identify his range of sounds as coming from a single player; and Jan St. Werner (Mouse on Mars, Lithops) can hardly contain his joy in transforming the proceedings into electro-prismatic splinters. For his part, Grubbs’s guitar playing has never before so confidently mangled commonsensical distinctions between composed and improvised music.

The album’s opener, “Slylight,” wends its way through a sequence of instrumental combinations in a manner redolent of Gastr del Sol’s Camoufleur. Before the album has concluded with the melancholy country raga of “The C in Certain,” waystations between have assumed the character of sludge-rock power trio (“Creep Mission,” “Return of the Creep”), pointillistic electroacoustic improv (“Jeremiadaic”), and bejeweled nylon-string guitar miniatures (“The Bonapartes of Baltimore,” “Jack Dracula in a Bar”).

David Grubbs’s solo albums often have a “the band has left the building” quality of dramatic left turns in the final act; on Creep Mission, peripatetic playing is basic strategy.

Previews of the album can be heard via the recent Brooklyn Rail podcast featuring two tracks plus an interview with David Grubbs | Listen on Soundcloud

There’s also a recent WFMU broadcast with a twenty-minute live in the studio performance plus interview | Listen on WFMU

LEE RANALDO – ELECTRIC TRIM OUT TODAY ON MUTE!

 

“… his finest solo LP” – MOJO ****
“… a welcome return” – Q
“… some great surprises” – Uncut *******
“Those seeking both instant gratification and the added pleasure of discovering more layers with every listen will appreciate Ranaldo’s latest.” – The Wire

Ahead of the release of a brand new album, his first for Mute, LEE RANALDO has shared the video for ‘Moroccan Mountains’, the opening track from Electric Trim, out on 15 September 2017.

In addition, Ranaldo has confirmed two Rough Trade instores, in New York tonight, and at London’s Rough Trade East on Monday 2 October plus a full band European tour for 2018. Before then, Ranaldo and the band will tour across North America in Oct / Nov this year. Further dates, including London will be announced in the coming weeks.

Watch the video for the opening track on the album here: http://po.st/LRMMVideo

Ranaldo explains, Moroccan Mountains was begun sitting atop a blood-red carpet with yellow mountain shapes woven into it that was brought back from Fes on my first trip there in 1995. I was strumming the chords that became the song and those mountain shapes took me back to my first trip to the country and into the Rif Mountains where I first met and played with the Master Musicians of Jajouka, in their little hilltop village with no running water or electricity. Somehow those memories infused a certain ‘Moroccan spirit’ into the song. It was a magical time, for Morocco is a magical place, and I found myself transported back via the chords from my guitar. The opening spoken section about ‘falling into the crack between the window and the world’ is based on true events that took place on a train approaching Grenoble, France in 2015…”

Directed by Fred Riedel, the video is an excerpt from the forthcoming documentary on the making of the album, shot on location in Morocco, France, New York City, Berlin, and somewhere in the skies over the Tyrrhenian Sea in 2016.

The feature length documentary, HELLO HELLO HELLO : LEE RANALDO : ELECTRIC TRIM tracks the making of the album by filmmakers Fred Riedel and Jerry Fried. The documentary will be touring select film festivals in Europe and the US, screenings include the New Jersey Film Festival on album release day, Fonomo Music and Film Festival in Poland and Gig Harbor Film Festival in Seattle in October and London’s Doc‘n Roll Festival in Nov (venue to be announced, tickets on sale on 27 September).

Watch the trailer for Hello Hello Hello here: http://po.st/LRHelloTrailer

Electric Trim was recorded in New York City and Barcelona in collaboration with producer Raül ‘Refree’ Fernandez and extends the work of Ranaldo’s solo canon, the most recent being his 2013 album, Last Night On Earth.

Through his collaboration with Fernandez, Ranaldo moves into some rich new sonic territories and production techniques, experimenting with electronic beats and samples alongside live players.

Ranaldo is a co-founder of Sonic Youth, a visual artist, producer and writer. In addition to Fernandez, he worked with several special guests on Electric Trim, including Sharon Van Etten who sings on six of the tracks and duets on ‘Last Looks’ and Kid Millions (aka Man Forever) as well as longtime friend and collaborator Nels Cline (Wilco). In addition, the album features Ranaldo’s band The Dust (fellow Sonic Youth member Steve Shelley, guitarist Alan Licht, and bassist Tim Luntzel).

Ranaldo collaborated with award winning New York author Jonathan Lethem (Motherless Brooklyn / The Fortress of Solitude) for lyrics on six of the songs, including ‘Thrown Over The Wall’, and the American artist, Richard Prince, who previously painted the sleeve for Sonic Youth’s 2004 album Sonic Nurse, created the artwork for the album.

NEW BAND ON ROSTER AND NEW ALBUM + TOUR FOR DÄLEK!!!

We’re happy to welcome US band dälek on Julie Tippex Roster for Europe. (Sofi at You’re not human booking will continue to handle the UK for them)

Veteran agitators Dälek have never been ones to stick within the rigid parameters of genre. A group who seemingly hold the utmost contempt for conservative expectations regarding form, instead pioneering a volatile and timeless strain of hip-hop, drawing as much from My Bloody Valentine as Public Enemy. These practitioners of noise fuelled depravity are back with a whole new album, entitled Endangered Philosophies, their follow up to last years Asphalt for Eden, scheduled to come out via Ipecac Recordings September 1, 2017.

With Dälek, the flow has often been usurped by scorched textures, the product of synthetic decay, themes flitting from pungent political rage through to outright Dionysian frenzy. On Endangered Philosophies, the lyrics are more focused and at the forefront than ever before, and MC Dälek’s new experiments with rhyme styles and flow makes for a vital concoction. There’s no doubt about it, Endangered Philosophies is a work of guttural catharsis, it is a call to arms…

Within the context of the current political landscape, the title Endangered Philosophies certainly brings to mind pertinent issues of moment, notably the rampant rise of anti-intellectualism, as well as the all too rapid erosion of genuinely progressive values in the face of fearful reactionary forces. In MC Dälek’s own words…“Endangered Philosophies is a very introspective record about very external forces. This isn’t about one listen… it’s about your evolving perception when you immerse yourself in the layers of sound and words. Endangered Philosophies is a record about the RIGHT NOW and yet will resonate differently each time it is listened to, in a word….timeless.” (Rolling Stone)

Dälek have been prone to outbursts of pummeling extremity, yet their sound is anything but one-dimensional; with viscous dark-ambient soundscapes congealing atop their incessant beats, a dual focus on brute force and disembodied unease. And still, Dälek continue to evolve, as Endangered Philosophies takes a new approach to source material, this time making use of material sent to them by people they have friendships and relationships with including Toronto-based Metz, manipulating and sampling in the same way they would use record samples.

Although the group have evolved their sound over the years, they continue to collaborate with the same behind the scenes crew who’ve been with them from the beginning, from the production team to the artist behind the cover art (Paul Romano). Endangered Philosophies captures so many elements of past Dälek but in a new way, easily matching any of their earlier output in terms of sheer unbridled intensity.

At this stage in their career they have elevated to a frankly peerless stature; with next year marking 20 years since the release of their pivotal debut album Negro Necro Nekros, and having previously collaborated with a host of like-minded visionaries; ranging from Krautrock legends Faust, through to the 90s electronic act Techno Animal – a similarly restless project comprised of Kevin Martin (The Bug, King Midas Sound) and Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu). Fans will be thrilled – but not too surprised – to discover that with Endangered Philosophies, the group once again charge forward, continuing to resist stagnation in all of its forms.

Love Theme, carnet de voyages.

Nous avions un peu perdu de vue Alex Zhang Hungtai depuis l’annonce de la fin du projet Dirty Beaches en 2014. Il y a peu, nous l’avons retrouvé au surprenant casting de la dernière saison de Twin Peaks. Membre du groupe Trouble crée pour l’occasion avec le fils de David Lynch, Alex apparaît ainsi sur la scène du mythique Roadhouse. Le morceau est en écoute sur Pitchfork ici.

Peu de temps après, nous recevions les beaux morceaux du nouveau trio Love Theme dans lequel il s’entoure de Austin Milne et Simon Frank. D’ailleurs proche de l’univers de Badalamenti, le projet est né de sessions improvisées mêlant saxos, percus, boite à rythmes, clavier, voix, et de nombreux voyages entre London, Los Angeles et Taipei. L’EP est sorti depuis le 23 juin, nous vous le recommandons vivement (en écoute sur The Fader ici) et sommes heureux de vous annoncer l’arrivée de ce beau projet chez Julie Tippex.

We’re finally ready to announce with excitement that Radian is on our roster for Europe

The long-standing experimental group Radian has been dealing with the relation between structure and abstraction and gained world wide attention promoted by the label Thrill Jockey. Martin Brandlmayr, John Norman and Martin Siewert combine the traditional instrumentation of rock music with extremely minimalist, abstract structures and create a space of tension between extreme dynamics, freely improvised parts and meticulous construction.

Their fifth and recent release ‘On Dark Silent Off’ is about the juxtaposition of extremes and contrast. It took inspiration from modern and contemporary works of art, from the abstract paintings of Ad Reinhardt to ‘Outer Space’, an impressionistic horror film by fellow Austrian Peter Tscherkassky. Vienna is the home of Radian who have been influenced by and shaped the city’s vivid scene of electronica since the early 2000s. Martin Brandlmayr works in the field between improvised music and composition, w/ Siewert and Joe Williamson he has been released music under their moniker Trapist (Thrill Jockey). Martin Siewert has recently been busy with playing in New Music contexts, performing with the likes of Uli Fussenegger (Klangforum Wien), Ernesto Molinari, and Jorge Sanchez-Chiong amongst his project Fake the Facts with Mats Gustafsson, and dieb13 (Editons Mego). John Norman is also playing guitar and singing in a shoegaze band called Snoww Crystal.  Pitchfork  RA  Artist page Video   Thrill Jockey

“A group from the fertile grounds of Vienna, Radian is an incredibly well oiled machine in concert. If their albums reflect their studio sound, then it’s the sheer pleasure these three accomplished musicians derive from performing together that make this trio a must see live ” Mutek Festival

“Radian is a machine, their music the sum of body hydraulics and fuzzy logic.” Will Montgomery, The Wire

The band is available in Europe / UK from Sep 15th to Dec 15th 2017 Booking contact is Tea Tippex : teafortippex AT gmail.com

 

Bye bye Amande

This Tuesday May 2nd we’re both sad and happy to announce you the departure of Amande Tippex from the collective, joining the forces of Puschen agency this day. Sad, because her presence in the Tippex adventure for all those years brought us a lot of freshness and creativity, and happy because it’s the most natural move for her to join Puschen which we’ve been sharing our Berlin offices with for years, and has a natural fit with Amande music tastes. We gonna miss her little craziness and total Frenchness, her incredible energy for making things happen. Julie Tippex lost today a little part of her soul, but not a friend, and we wish her to have the best adventures with Andreas, Susanne, Peter and Johannes. Tippex un jour, Tippex toujours. With gratitude !

NEW BAND ON ROSTER >> OTTO RIITA (ROCK TO THE BEAT REC.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re happy to welcome OTTO RIITA on our Roster!

After years approaching each other, yugo solo and Rescue finally team up to create some music under the moniker OTTO RIITA. Rescue is a dj, radio producer and sound artist. She is active within the french underground electronic scene since the early 2000. yugo solo is one of the guitar heroes of the french super band RIEN (RIP) and member of the crazy duo Câlin. Within OTTO RIITA they blend their skills and backgrounds to create an odd yet funky spacey disco vibe that is a real collision of worlds.

The title track ‘Azul Piscina’ is first and is a rugged affair with shooting synths, funky drums and a raw energy that really gets you going. Cosmic melodic explosions and knotted bass guitar riffs brush up with one another and make the whole thing really jump out at you. Next up, the equally interesting ‘Square Dance’ is a deeper affair, with rippling synths and big bass downstrokes taking you far off into the cosmos. It is a musical tune that mixes organic and synthetic sounds with real aplomb.

Belgian-Italo duo Front De Cadeaux step up to remix and rework ‘Azul Piscina’ into a slow and ponderous, chuggy disco prowler with tumbling percussion and loose drums falling away from the groove. It’s playful and curious and makes way for Argentinian drummer and producer Publicist to step up to tackle the same track. His version is much more direct and freaked-out with mad synths bringing a tortured feel, industrial sounds adding energy and slap-funk drums driving the whole thing along.

HERE is what The Drone thinks about it.. and HERE Gonzai! and here below a few quotes from DJ/Producer/Labels

Arnaud Rebotini > ‘Publicist remix is for me !’
Chloé > ‘love both original tracks !’
Ted Krisko from ATAXIA >‘Talk about a release that cuts through in promo world. Total standout – thank you for the absolute smashers here. Azul Piscina OG & Publicist remix get full support. ‘
Bottin >‘both original are very good. Publicist remix also interesting!’
Bufi / Ritmo Culto (Kitsuné, Correspondant, Record Makers, Turbo) > ‘NICE!’
Gemini Brothers > ‘Defo a great EP! Love ‘Azul Piscina’ orig version! Defo playing and supporting around!’
Tom Findlay from Groove Armada > ‘wicked disco ness – love it’
Severino Panzetta from Horse Meat Disco > ‘Great release Front De Cadeaux is FAB and original too ‘
Timothy Clerkin from Heretic / Eskimo Twins > ‘All amazing!’
Golden Bug > ‘Top F2C and Azul Piscina’
Id!r > ‘Nice pack ! Originals are just Brilliant, love them both.’
Il Est Vilaine > ‘Cool ep’
Alexandre Berly from La Mverte > ‘F2C remix is for me, really good !’
Marco Dos Santos > ‘Great one. ‘
Pulp Disco and The Outcasts (Her Majesty’s Ship, Correspondant, La Dame Noir) > ‘Great release. Love the originals and remixes.’
PSLKTR (Meant Records) > ‘square dance original is sick’
Travis Kirschbaum from Split Secs (Kompakt) > ‘Loving Azul and and the Publicist remix. Very nice!’
Neil Parnell from Tronik Youth > ‘great package’

They’re now available for live and Dj Set !

JEFF MILLS PRESENTS “PLANETS”

PLANETS“, Jeff Mills with Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música.
Release: 24 March 2017 on Axis Records. Planets trailer: here.
Recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound Blu-Ray + CD set.

It has been 100 years since the British composer Gustav Holst introduced his most famous score «The Planets». An elegant musical tour to each one of our Planets in the Solar System, Holst brought forth imaginary visions of space that would survive many generations and decades after. As an important piece to the classical universe,“The Planets“ is regularly played throughout the World every year as it had been the most vivid translation of our cosmic neighborhood until now.

The Electronic Music artist and producer Jeff Mills, pays tribute to this century of incredible musical production. He embarks to compose a sonic journey to re-discover our neighboring planets in a 18 piece suite that explores the nine planets, including the portions of space in between the Planets,the nine regions Mills calls LoopTransits.

Deeply inhabited by science-fiction, Jeff Mills adopts its ideas, concepts, stories and esthetics from the outset. For him, Space is an obsession and his music almost becomes a musical science-fiction. Conquering space, his music embodies the future while both respecting the past and remaining well into the present. Mills takes the rotating principle of the solar system as aesthetics, concept and model for creativity. From the beginning, his first releases explore futuristic and science fiction topics and continue to do so to this day. For Jeff Mills, the future is a powerful creative drive which explains the artist’s ceaseless activity.

Since its creation and like the intention of Holst, each track is musically imagined to invoke the psychological affect, emotions and ideas of each planet. But unlike in the year 1918, when the score was first publicly heard on the last week of World War I, 100 years later, we now have a more accurate knowledge about what each Planet is made of and what they look like.The piece should bring the audience closer to confronting each planet in ways that audiences in 1918 could only dream of.

With the French composer Sylvain Griotto, the arranger of Planets and Mills’ previous work on the album and classical score about the NASA astronaut and doctor Mamoru Morhi’s space journey in 1992 and 2000 from the album “Where Light Ends“, Mills has created an electronic music album that have been translated for symphonic and philharmonic orchestras and will accompany them in their live debut and all performances. Starting to conceptualize and produce music for it dating back to 2005, Mills constantly worked on the project over the years to bring it to fruition.

In July 2016 Jeff Mills has completed the last production stages of the Planets album at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London. Recorded and will be released in 5.1 surround on the Blue Ray digital format, the soundtrack needed a particular high level of expertise that could only be attended to at hands of the renowned senior studio engineer Jonathan Allen. The expertise and quality associated with the legendary Abbey Road Studios is recognized globally and undeniably the most famous studio in theWorld.It is with acclaim from the Beatles,Pink Floyd,or more recently Radiohead before him, that Jeff Mills will bring Planets at this legendary music institution. The mastering sessions occurred on August 2016 with the acclaimed Mastering engineer Darcy Proper in Holland.

Mills regularly performs with symphonic orchestras around the world, always to sold-out venues.
PLANETS is available for concerts with symphonic orchestras. Please contact pascal [a] julietippex.com
