Remote Control and 4AD are proud to announce that LA based producer Lo-Fang(nee Matthew Hemerlein)will release his debut album Blue Film on February 21st 2014.
Classically trained in violin, cello, bass, piano and guitar, Hemerlein’s soulful falsetto floats above a rich blend of classical, R&B and electronic music, telling stories of love, loss, and deceit. The album was written and recorded during Hemerlein’s world travels everywhere from a farmhouse in Maryland to a hotel in Cambodia to studios in London and Nashville. He completed the album at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles with GRAMMY Award winning producer Francois Tetaz (Gotye, Kimbra, Architecture In Helsinki).
Noted filmmaker Grant Singer (Sky Ferreira, Kendrick Lamar, DIIV) directed the stunning two-part video for album track “Look Away” that premiered overnight via VEVO. The first half nodding to the op-art movement with the second half filmed in an abandoned mansion in the Hollywood Hills where Spielberg once shot scenes from Colombo.
Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, ‘Amsterdam’ offers an intimate glimpse of the trio behind the scenes when they performed at Festival No.6, set in the picturesque coastal resort of Portmeirion, North Wales.
Using four tracks from Zomby’s forthcoming album, With Love, London based director Ollie Evans has created a tableau vivant-inspired short to preview the new record. Filmed in monochrome and slow motion, Evans takes excerpts from ‘Ascension’, ‘Sunshine in November’, ‘Overdose’ and ‘Memories’ to portray a movement through life and death.
With Love is released via 4AD / Remote Control on double CD and triple vinyl, Friday 14th June.
