News : First Impressions: Deerhunter, “Halcyon Digest”

Delivered... info@filtermmm.com | Scene | Tue 31 Aug 2010 7:13 pm
First Impressions: Deerhunter, “Halcyon Digest”

Deerhunter
Halcyon Digest
4AD
Release Date: September 28


Tracklist:

01. Earthquake
02. Don’t Try
03. Revival
04. Sailing
05. Memory Boy
06. Desire Lines
07. Basement Scenes
08. Helicopter
09. Foundation Stairs
10. Coronado
11. He Would Have Laughed



First Impressions:

-This is the Atlanta, Georgia, outfit’s first LP since 2008’s Microcastle/Weird Era Cont. The band recorded the album at nearby Chase Park Transduction Studios in Athens and Notown Sound in Marietta. The final track of the album, “He Would Have Laughed,” was recorded separately by singer Bradford Cox and is a tribute to his friend, the late Jay Reatard.

-The album begins with the melancholy “Earthquake.” Cox’s vocals are dark and haunting, especially since the vocals are lo-fi and are layered on top of an acoustic guitar, synth and drums. It’s a cool sounding art rock track.

-“Revival” is the album’s first single. It is an upbeat tune that also feature Cox’s lo-fi sounding vocals. You can hear the band channeling early-era R.E.M. throughout the song.

-“Memory Boy” is a near perfect blend of indie-pop and alt-rock. This song is a real rocker. The band channels groups from the I.R.S. Records heyday during the '80s college rock boom in Athens and the band doesn’t waste a second--the song clocking in at a brisk 2:09.


Key Tracks:

“Don’t Cry,” “Desire Lanes,” “Helicopter.”

Predictions:

Once again and not surprisingly, Deerhunter delivers a very strong album. Combining its brand of bright indie-pop and dark alt-rock, Halycon Digest shows maturity in the band’s songwriting and there are so many great things about this album that you it's nearly impossible able to list them all. That being said, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see this album on many critics’ best album list as one of the best of 2010.

Weekend Weapons: Todd Terry

Delivered... Posted by Alex Hughes | Scene | Tue 31 Aug 2010 5:38 pm
Few artists personify house music's range like Todd Terry: from his roots as one of New York's pivotal underground DJs, he's gone on to become a massive crossover fave. When he submitted his Weekend Weapons to Beatport, Terry told us how he stays inspired by traveling frequently between the overground and the underground: "DJing this year has been about playing in two different worlds, but trying to give each world a taste of the other. One world I call the "big room" commercial clubs and festivals, and the other world I call the old school house clubs. I'm playing different records, different types of sets in each, and it's great to be touring and play a house club in Naples on a Friday night and then a big room in Belgrade on a Saturday night to see what the different crowds are dancing to. I have been at this for a minute and as a DJ you have to know where the crowd wants to go, and it's my job to take them there. In the big rooms I'm playing Steve Angello mixes, and in the house clubs I can always throw in some of my classics like 'Samba', 'Can U Party', and 'Bango'." Check out his full list of tunes, with audio and Terry's commentary, after the jump.

Sounds by Richard Devine, Granulation on iOS, and Footsteps of a Wasp

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Tue 31 Aug 2010 5:01 pm

Exploring granular sound on the iPad in the application Curtis. Image courtesy the developers.

Named for Curtis Roads, Curtis is an iPad and iPhone/iPod touch application that implements granular sound processing – a technique, imagined early on by the composer Xenakis, which divides sound into tiny granules, allowing more liquid modification of the audio. Roads brought this idea to digital synthesis, and the results can transform recorded samples in pitch and time.

Composer, producer, and sound designer Richard Devine has long made use of granular techniques in his own work, so it’s little surprise Richard is turning his sonic compositional efforts to the iPad app. The latest release includes a new sound set he designed, but he also writes CDM to point out a track he’s shared on SoundCloud, free to download and hear and for your remixing and re-compositional use.

The track is a composition of samples, and it shows just how much you can do with recorded audio:

This piece is a Acousmatic composition based on everyday found objects. I recorded various wine glasses, gears, metal, motors, Ratchets, chimes, croaking frog scraper, Indian bells, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Santoor, waterphone, piano, hematite magnets, processed voice, underwater ambiances, computer, and sprinkled bits of Buchla 200e/Doepfer Euro rack Modular.

All of the sounds originally captured at 24-bit 96khz with a Neumann RSM 191 A/S stereo shotgun mic, SMK4060 Stereo Matched 4060-BM Miniature Omnidirectional Microphones and Sound Devices 702 recorder.

Objects Of Granularity by RichardDevine

If you want to try out Curtis, you can do so on both iPad (pictured above) and iPhone:

Curtis for iPad
Curtis Heavy for iPhone

I love the geometric/vector-style twist on the wave display. New in the recent 1.1 release: pitch control, echo effect, volume control … and the all-important MP3 import. (Usually working with uncompressed files is more successful, however. With WAV or MP3 files, simply drag-and-drop files from iTunes.)

In other sound design experiments, Richard records an insect’s footsteps inside a box, recorded on a catch-and-release program, from earlier this summer.

Found a large Velvet Ant walking on my driveway today, and couldn’t help but notice the odd sounds this insect was making. The recording is of the insect crawling around inside a cardboard box, before I let it go back into my backyard. The Velvet Ant, also known as the “Cow Killer” is actually not an ant, but a wasp. I recorded this with 2 DPA 4060 Lav’s and Sound Devices 702 recorder at 24bit-96Khz.

F*>K Dance, Let’s Art

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Tue 31 Aug 2010 3:18 pm

!K7 have announced they will be releasing a compilation of brand new music focusing on the best music coming from the emerging movement where indie and electronic meet, entitled F*>K Dance, Let’s Art. It seems like this particular wave, like this compilation, is plagued by terrible names such as chill wave, new gaze, surf pop and countless other arbitrary monikers which, to be fair, don’t quite do the music or this compilation justice.

However, once you get past the name and to the music, you won’t be disappointed. It features the best bits from the leaders of the pack: Toro y Moi, Washed Out, Animal Collective, Crystal Castles VS HEALTH and The Phenomenal Hand Clap Band.

A concise journey through the contemporary psychedelic electronic pop sounds coming out of the States currently.

Tracklist:
01. Baghdaddy – Hot Shit (Creep Remix)
02. Balam Acab – See Birds
03. Peter’s House Music – Body Heat
04. Small Black – Despicable Dogs
05. Toro y Moi – Fax Shadow
06. Hideous Men – Tangled
07. Slava – Anything
08. Washed Out – Feel It All Around
09. Truman Peyote – Kartwheels
10. Psychobuildings – Paradise
11. Animal Collective – My Girls
12. Crystal Castles VS HEALTH – Crimewave
13. Raw Moans – Aqua Net
14. Pictureplane – Transparent Now (Thin Veil)
15. The Phenomenal Handclap Band – 15 to 20 (Bim Marx Remix)
16. oOoOO – Sedsumthing
17. Memory Tapes – Bicycle (Horrors Cosmic Dub)
18. Bear in Heaven – Lovesick Teenagers

!K7 will release F*>k Dance, Let’s Art on September 28th, 2010.

Phonica re-rub a Bob Holroyd classic

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Tue 31 Aug 2010 3:10 pm

Phonica Records (the label of our favourite record shop) are re-releasing Bob Holroyd’s classic track ‘African Drug’ with a brace of killer remixes from Four Tet (read our interview with the man here) and T. Wiliams.

Originally released in 1994, ‘African Drug’ was included on both Francois K’s Essential Mix and Journeys By DJ: Coldcut – two stellar mixes from acknowledged masters of the craft. Featuring African rhythms (really?!), the track is as hypnotic as it is fresh.

However, having had a sneak preview of the release – which also comes with two exclusive digital only cuts (a second T Williams mix and the original 12 minute bomb) – it is these remixes, and especially the Four Tet one, that we think that will be doing some serious damage on the dance-floor.

‘African Drug’ will be released via Phonica on Sept 27th.

Weekend Weapons: DJ Fresh

Delivered... Posted by Caleb Rakes | Scene | Tue 31 Aug 2010 12:57 pm
DJ Fresh’s long overdue comeback album is one of the most anticipated drum & bass albums of 2010. Having taunted us with singles from the longplayer over the past two years, including ‘Gold Dust’ and ‘Hypercaine’, Fresh’s return to the scene after an extended absence is a chance to reclaim his title as one of the best producers on the scene. Having come full force after resurrecting his career post-Bad Company, Fresh (aka Dan Stein) went on to set up the infamous Breakbeat Kaos imprint and became heavily involved in introducing Pendulum to the world. His 2006 debut album, ‘Escape from Planet Monday’, gathered serious critical acclaim on the back of tracks like ‘The Pink Panther’, ‘All That Jazz’, and ‘Submarines’. Fresh takes the time out to take us through the records that have causing epic rewinds and burning holes on the decks throughout his gigs, keep reading to find out more.
