Cantaloupe Music released the Crash Ensemble’s recording of “Forced March” as a digital download on New Year’s Day. Sadly, in the intervening six weeks, David Lang’s inexorably paced anthem feels only more prescient.
Burning the Threshold, the new LP by Six Organs of Admittance is out February 24th.
This week, Guy Blakeslee (who records for Thrill Jockey as ENTRANCE) released a single titled “Not Gonna’ Say Your Name.” The song protests Friday’s presidential inauguration (lyrics below). Proceeds from downloads and streams benefit Planned Parenthood. On Valentine’s Day, he will be playing on a benefit concert for the organization (details below).
Mikel Rouse’s Metronome project has been in heavy rotation around these parts. His latest album, Take Down, had a five-year long gestation. Given the varied reference points, one can hear why. Two parts sci-fi electronica, one part postmodern amalgam (including field recordings), topped off with Rouse’s surefire vocals: most worthy of investigation.
Nick Zammuto’s Veryone EP is out on Temporary Residence Ltd.
