SOHN DEBUT ALBUM TREMORS ANNOUNCED ALONGSIDE VIDEO FOR ‘ARTIFICE’

Having tantalised audiences with ‘The Wheel’‘Bloodflows’‘Tempest’ and ‘Lessons’SOHN has added the final touches to his debut solo album. Eagerly anticipated, Tremors will receive its release in Australia on Friday 4th April via 4AD / Remote Control.

Tremors is the way in which past traumas, as much as past successes, linger like the aftershocks of an earthquake. Even in the calmest moments its effects continue to reverberate and inform who we become. Throughout the eleven songs that form Tremors runs a sense of the nocturnal – a sensitivity to the darkness and its inhibitions – with London-born SOHN adopting a night-time schedule for an intense period of long nights writing and recording in his Vienna studio.  “I wanted Tremors to feel like fresh air,”says SOHN. “There’s something about the way I was working overnight on the album which found its way into the sound. Every night I worked finished with a cold sunrise and a walk home… and to me that’s what Tremors sounds like.”

To coincide with the announcement, SOHN has released a video for album track and forthcoming single ‘Artifice‘. Arguably the melodic heart of Tremors, the song was given its debut airing by Zane Lowe who named ‘Artifice’ his Hottest Record In The World on his BBC Radio 1 show. Watch its accompanying video, directed by Thom Glunt, here.

COURTNEY BARNETT SIGNS WITH REMOTE CONTROL RECORDS FOR AUSTRALIAN RELEASE OF DOUBLE EP & DEBUT ALBUM

Over the past 12 months Melbourne singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett has received international acclaim for her remarkable ability to transform the most mundane events of everyday life into spellbinding, thoughtful lyrics. Courtney has quickly caught the attention of music lovers and critics the world over with Rolling Stone (USA) comparing her to “early Bob Dylan”, while NPR described Barnett as “laconic, funny and charming.”

Remote Control Records is excited to announce the signing of Courtney Barnett to its ever growing Australian roster which includes King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Teeth & Tongue, Sunbeam Sound Machine, Dirty Three, Mick Turner, Midnight Juggernauts, Miami Horror & many more.

Barnett will release her debut album later this year on her own imprint label Milk! Records backed by the team at Remote Control. More immediately her The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas will be available in store on CD format in March with a limited edition vinyl to follow.

In the USA The Double EP will be released in April on NYC-based indie powerhouse Mom + Pop, (home to revered artists like Sleigh Bells, Andrew Bird, Polica, and fellow Australians Jagwar Ma).  In the UK the album is released on Marathon and has already received a full page review in Uncut.

Courtney’s music featured strongly in 2012 end of year lists, including NME, Spin, The Music, Rolling Stone (USA), Pitchfork, Fuse and NPR.  “Avant Gardener” has already received significant play on Triple j and community radio and “History Eraser” was recently nominated for the APRA Song Of The Year.

Right now Courtney Is on a SOLD OUT tour of the UK & USA and will return to Australia in March to support Billy Brag on his National Tour. Later in 2014 Barnett will tour the UK & USA more extensively  and will make festival appearances at SasquatchPrimavera and Coachella.

RATKING ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM ‘SO IT GOES’

Following a busy 2013 that saw them playing shows with acts as diverse as GZA, Death Grips, King Krule and Trash Talk as well as collaborating with legendary photographer and filmmaker Ari Marcopoulos, RATKING are ready to announce that their debut album So It Goes will be released April 4th via Hot Charity / Remote Control.

The album finds the group perfecting the balance between the raw, unbridled energy of their live set and the warm soulful, golden-era hip hop that the members grew up on, aided in large part by engineering from Young Guru (Jay-Z, The Diplomats, Notorious B.I.G.). So It Goes is a portrait of modern day New York City painted over the course of its 11 tracks. For evidence of this, check out lead single ‘Canal’.
