BRETON composer Yann Tiersen has shared the mesmerising new video for “Poull Boujer”, the latest track he’s divulged from his August album for Mute, Kerber – you can watch that below; and announced details of a massive worldwide tour, beginning later this year in North America and coming to Europe in 2022. The dates include …

CHEMISTRY students, listen up good. Here’s a new formula to examine. Take the wired, wild inventiveness of a Kool Keith; introduce it to the in-your-grill breaks innovation of MF DOOM; it’s gonna make a brilliantly unstable and fun isotope of leftfield hip-hop, right?

To tempt you further into his world and to pique your curiosity – and …

SARAH K. PEDINOTTI, the Brooklyn experimental popster who guises as LIP TALK, and who we last saw see-sawing twixt sin and virtue on the psychedelic synthpop of “More”, has dropped another single flirting with the concepts of the vices, the thrumming dayglo silk of “Bargain Day”, coming at pop askew with a little ESG and …

WITH their long-awaited third joining together in song, Superwolves, the direct descendent of 2005’s Superwolf, out digitally just a couple of months back, you might think Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy could rest easy, take a breather; but not a bit of it, they’ve been up to so much. For a start, Drag City are pleased as …

The Rumjacks have shared the video for ‘Rhythm Of Her Name.’ The track is taken from their new album ‘Hestia,’ which was released in March (read our review here), and follows the announcement of an extensive UK and Ireland tour in 2022.
