ANOHNI shares ‘4 DEGREES’

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 10.44.55 AMANOHNI, the lead singer from Antony and the Johnsons, has released a new song ‘4 DEGREES.’ The track sees ANOHNI collaborate with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never.

The song has been released to support the Paris climate conference and tackles the issue of global boiling and collapsing biodiversity.

As discussed by ANOHNI, “I have grown tired of grieving for humanity, and I also thought I was not being entirely honest by pretending that I am not a part of the problem,” she said. “‘4 DEGREES’ is kind of a brutal attempt to hold myself accountable, not just valorize my intentions, but also reflect on the true impact of my behaviors.”

Listen to the track via Spotify / Apple Music

‘4 DEGREES’ is the first single from her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS. Stay tuned for more information about the forthcoming release.

Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 2.56.00 pm

Our friends EL VY have shared the video for ‘No Time To Crank The Sun’. The band made a promise to eeping with their to create a video for every track on their debut album, ‘Return To The Moon’ which is out now! Directed by Tom Berninger (Matt’s sibling, director of the award-winning Mistaken For Strangers film and creator of all preceding EL VY videos thus far), the video pieces together behind-the-scenes footage of Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf.

EL VY is a project Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf have been thinking about for years. Their friendship spans nearly a decade, starting back when the National and Brent’s previous band Menomena played small half-empty clubs along America’s west coast. Finally, in the winter and spring of 2014-15, they actually got together to make an album and it is pretty great!

Wild Nothing, a.k.a Brooklyn-based musician Jake Tatum, is pleased to announce his third-studio album, ‘Life of Pause’, will be released Friday 19th February via Captured Tracks / Remote Control Records.

Watch the first two cuts from from the album; ‘TV Queen’ and ‘To Know You,’ both of which can be streamed via the video link below.

When Jack Tatum began work on Life of Pause he had fascinating ambitions. “I desperately wanted for this to be the kind of record that would displace me,” he says. “I’m terrified by the idea of being any one thing, or being of any one genre. And whether or not I accomplish that, I know that my only hope of getting there is to constantly reinvent. That reinvention doesn’t need to be drastic, but every new record has to have it’s own identity, and it has to have a separate set of goals from what came before.”

Life of Pause is an exquisitely arranged and beautifully recorded collection of songs that marry the immediate with the indefinable. “I allowed myself to go down every route I could imagine even if it ended up not working for me,” he says. “I owe it to myself to take as many risks as possible. Songs are songs and you have to allow yourself to be open to everything.”
