To Be Kind



Young God Records is delighted to announce the release of a new SWANS album, To Be Kind, out on May 13, 2014.

A NOTE FROM MICHAEL GIRA:
Hello There,
We (Swans) have recently completed our new album. It is called To Be Kind. The release date is set for May 13, 2014. It will be available as a triple vinyl album, a double CD, and a 2XCD Deluxe Edition that will include a live DVD. It will also be available digitally.
The album was produced by me, and it was recorded by the venerable John Congleton at Sonic Ranch, outside El Paso Texas, and further recordings and mixing were accomplished at John’s studio in Dallas, Texas. We commenced rehearsals as Sonic Ranch in early October 2013, began recording soon thereafter, then completed the process of mixing with John in Dallas by mid December 2013.

NPR.org: First Listen: Kelis, 'Food' (Kiana Fitzgerald)




Food is life. It's the connective tissue between families, communities and cultures. At base, it's sustenance, and at its most complex, like when it appears in song, it can evoke nostalgia, carnal desires and comfort. For , R&B's resident provocateur, Food — her first album since 2010's dance-heavy Flesh Tone — is the embodiment of what she has always contended as an artist: that she can't be molded to fit inside one genre — one flavor, one dish, one cuisine. ...

The project websites may also be affected for brief periods, but the directories get more use day-to-day.

OpenSSL hat einen extrem kritischen Bug der den Spitznamen Heartbleed bekommen hat.

This Blue World

This blue world and its countless sisters
And all that came before that day
Our atoms straining to a line
Was the universe in rehearsal for us?

When all the world is sucking on it's sleep
You'll hear an urgent morse in the gentle rain
And if you plot your course on the windowpane
You'll see the coldest star in the arms of the oldest tree
You'll know to come to me

In the back of a broken car
When the blizzard blossom flew
Reading aloud with our fingers
What we both already knew

And the blizzard blossom flew
And the blizzard blossom flew

When all the world is sucking on it's sleep
You'll hear an urgent morse in the gentle rain
And if you plot your course on the windowpane
You'll see the coldest star in the arms of the oldest tree
You'll know to come to me

A sober midnight wish flies over the rooves and down through the years
Hope that you and yours are sleeping
Safe and warm in size formation
While three chambers of my heart beat true and strong with love for another
The fourth, the fourth is yours forever.

Duo de Twang
How "deconstructed" can a group get? How about just one vocal, one bass, one guitar, and a basic beat supplied by stomping on a mini-tambourine-doohickey? That's exactly what everyone's favorite storyteller/narrator, Les Claypool, is incorporating in his new band, Duo de Twang. While Les is still pulling double duty with the Primus lads, he has also found the time to unite with his old buddy, Bryan Kehoe, who fans will recognize from several past Claypool projects, and also as one of the main actors from Les' hilarious jam band mockumentary, 'Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo.' But unlike Primus, DDT focuses more on the Americana/rootsy side of things - as heard throughout the band's debut recording Four Foot Shack, to be released via ATO Records on February 4th.

NPR.org: First Listen: Neneh Cherry, 'Blank Project'

Bild/Foto

Many will describe Blank Project as Neneh Cherry's comeback album — and, to be fair, it is her first solo work in 18 years. In that time, though, Cherry has released two collaborative LPs, contributed to numerous artists' projects, started a band with her husband and daughter, toured the world and lived in several different countries, just to name the relevant accomplishments. So, while Blank Project might seem perfectly timed for a '90s-revivalist, Coachella-baiting cash-out, it's actually the culmination of a fascinating career arc.

Pitchfork: Video: Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux, and Serengeti (aka Sisyphus): "Alcohol"



In more normal Sufjan Stevens news than what popped up yesterday, Sisyphus-- the collaboration between Sufjan, Serengeti, and Son Lux formerly known as s/s/s-- has released a new video, via Vogue. It's billed as a "lyric video" for the song "Alcohol" from Sisyphus' previously reported self-titled album, out March 18 via Asthmatic Kitty and Joyful Noise. But the lyrics are barely in it. Rather, it's a collage of images of various celebrities (Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Kanye, Obama, Bush, etc.), movies (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Gravity, etc.), news events, and Sufjan himself. ...
