KORA ANNOUNCE EAST COAST TOUR

Kora will release their highly anticipated second album Light Years on Friday 26 October 2012 via Remote Control. The five-strong collective of fearless sonic explorers have discovered a whole new constellation of future-shocked funk, soul and r’n’b – dubbing it ‘alien funk.’

Light Years steps into the unknown on a bass odyssey, eschewing guitars in favour of a high-tech arsenal of synthesisers, live and sampled drums plus the otherworldly four-part harmonies of the brothers Laughton, Francis, Stuart and Brad Kora and brother-in-arms Dan McGruer.

PREMIERED BY RCRD LBL: CHET FAKER ‘TERMS AND CONDITIONS’ (NICOLAS JAAR REMIX)

Master of sonic space Nicolas Jaar just dragged Blackstreet-covering crooner Chet Faker into his isolated, emotive world on this remix of ‘Terms And Conditions.’ It’s all metallic circularity – a house of mirrors rotating in expanding directions before breaking into a house beat with submarine bass, Faker’s pitched-to-depths voice trying to climb to the surface.
