British Sea Power will release their fifth album Machineries Of Joy on Friday 29 March 2013 via Rough Trade / Remote Control.
Machineries Of Joy was written in the Berwyn mountains in north Wales and recorded in Brighton with Dan Smith and mixer Ken Thomas (David Bowie, Sigur Ros).
“We’d like to think the album is warm and restorative,” says singer Yan. “Various things are touched on in the words – Franciscan monks, ketamine, French female bodybuilders turned erotic movie stars. The world often seems a mad, hysterical place at the moment. You can’t really be oblivious to that, but we’d like the record to be an antidote – a nice game of cards in pleasant company.”

From salt, sand and circuitry, Australian industrial dance act FORCES return with new single ‘Overland (In My Mind)’.
The taut industrial pop of ‘Overland (In My Mind)’ propels the listener across an endless terrain; the distant sound of commerce echoes deep in the earth. Taken from their brand new self titled EP, via Siberia Records, ‘Overland (In My Mind)’ was produced by the band and mixed by Kim Moyes of The Presets.
Forces will launch the release of ‘Overland (In My Mind)’ over several dates playing in Tokyo at Glad/Lounge Neo (Shibuya) on 4 February, Club 77 in Sydney on 8 February and the Liberty Social in Melbourne on 22February.
Forces self titled EP is available now on limited edition 12″ vinyl via Siberia Records. Simultaneously sumptuous and sterile, Forces new framework offers guidance through the hostile terrain it generates.
