NEW SIGNING: MAJICAL CLOUDZ + MP3


For the past few years, Devon Welsh’s been recording solo material composed between rural Ontario and Montreal, and collaborating in production & performance with Matthew Otto under the guise Majical Cloudz.
Matador and Remote Control have the distinct pleasure to bring his next full-length to record stores worldwide.

It’s been written of Majical Cloudz: Their performance is deeply expressive — strong vocals sit on top of washes of white noise, filtered synths and sparse thuds. The songs are intensely lyrical, oriented around themes of death, patience, family and desire. The live show celebrates the joy in sadness and the value of a shared musical experience.

We’ll have more details on the full-length release shortly, but we can tell you that you’ll be hearing this song on it.
Download “Turns Turns Turns” (as previously heard on a 2012 Arbutus/Merok EP) HERE.

Watch Majical Cloudz perform the track live via Yours Truly below.

ALBUM ANNOUNCEMENT: CHELSEA LIGHT MOVING + MP3

We are pleased to announce the release of the self-titled debut album from Chelsea Light Moving on March 1 via Matador/Remote Control.

Chelsea Light Moving is the current group led by Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore.
He is the songwriter and plays over-amped hyper electric guitar and sings with raw-glam-destructo vocals. The band is a four piece featuring Samara Lubelski, who has played violin with Thurston Moore on his last two solo LPs (Demolished Thoughts and Trees Outside The Academy) and with Chelsea Light Moving plays deep psyche pop metal bass guitar.

Keith Wood, who records under the aegis Hush Arbors, plays electric guitar with a pick forged from angel wing and John Moloney, aka “Pegasus”, approaches the drums like an asteroid hurtling toward Earth.

The first CD self-titled was recorded in two spurious sessions with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato in Sone Lab, a killer studio in Easthampton, Massachusetts.

The band is ready to detonate any birthday party, wedding or hullaboo in any country, planet or stratosphere that doesn’t support right wing extremist NRA sucking bozo-ology.
