MOODIE BLACK "MB III":

[image]

Known as pioneers of the new era noise rap scene Moodie Black has snuggly nestled themselves into alt rap lore. Over a decade strong Moodie Black has earned a reputation of being harshly uncompromising while showcasing their affinity for mood and atmosphere.

"Originally we had no intention on releasing MB I I I in the states. But this is 2019 and MB is world-wide so here it is. For this release we have teamed up with 2 French labels one is Atypeek Music who is handling the digital overseas content and the other is Rotorelief which will be releasing a 10 inch special edition vinyl that will include a track not on the digital release. Fake Four is also involved helping per usual with our states work.

Our world premiere was foiled. But MB is hardly ever contained. Thanks to the power of the content alone we have had the privilege of touring the world, being on one of the best labels in the country, and constantly popping up in national and international conversations in regards to our work. So. we continue on with MB I I I. We continue to destroy the glass ceilings.
"

«Noise rap pioneers» Moodie Black, called «brilliant and formidable» (Noisey), will release MB III, the third installment in a series of breakout EPs that began with MB which caught the attention of Anthony Fantano (The Needle Drop) and led to their signing with label Fake Four Inc. Standout tracks «Hipster Death», «Crow», and «Totem» from the first two EPs are lauded by the group’s fanbase as cult classics.

The upcoming MB III EP is no exception, with Moodie Black referring to it as their «freshest work since Nausea.» The group’s most recent record Lucas Acid was released on Fake Four Inc. in April of 2018 and landed press features in OUT, Bandcamp, and Self- Titled Mag. Lead vocalist Kdeath says the new EP is also the precursor to the next full length record to be released this fall via Fake Four - Moodie Black S T A T I C.

MEMBRANE "Burn Your Bridges"

[image]

Membrane will release their new Album Burn Your Bridges in February 2019, it was recorded and mixed throughout 2018 by Mathieu Kabi {lndie Ear Studio, Rebel Assholes) and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker... ). More refined on the Production, Membrane has always evolved keeping its vitality and its urge to create. For now, two tours are planned: a French one with Sofy Major (February) and another one in Russia (July), both in support for Burn Your Bridge. Membrane are unmatched in playing rhythms, slow and with a focus on constant tension. Deep scars of distorted bass, frozen deep in heavy loud riffs. With Burn Your Bridges the band once again releases the beast!

Ni "Pantophobie":

[image]

Ni is a four-headed monster. The big bad Ni has left the linear roads of the French department of Ain, in order to live in a complex world paced by electrical sounds and varying polyrhythms. In its temple, shouts of the quartet make the windows crack, a stunning nervousness makes the walls stand and, finally, the strong foundations remove from ages to come all doubts regarding the durability of all these things. Inside, it is always like a squall: children run in all directions and parents dance around the bonfire. The waltz, the 4/4 time signature and verse and chorus structures take one last breath before being burned to ashes at the core of this fire.

After two EPs and many terrific tour dates in Europe that have almost broken the stages, it is time for Ni to release a new album. Ni invites all those who like frantic riffs to a huge party that celebrates a sweet barbarism. No reply is expected.

3 years after Les Insurgés de Romilly, and after having spent some time with PinioL, the band is coming back with the new album Pantophobie. While being faithful to his predecessors, but probably a bit darker, Pantophobie explores various fears as a main theme. The massive production is dedicated to head-banging. With this 4th release (2 EPs and 2 LPs), the quartet crushes their cigarettes very hard, dig a hole into the ground, and leave the listeners in ashes. The band recorded with Herve Faivre, from Igorrr, and worked with Rémy Boy (Gojira, Secret Chief, Ezekiel...) for the mix.

COLLAPSE UNDER THE EMPIRE "Anomaly":

[image]

Collapse Under The Empire are back with the single Anomaly, out on December 21, 2018 via Finaltune Records. The track is a forerunner from the forthcoming album and it combines everything that Collapse Under The Empire developed in the last 10 years. Vivid synthetic sounds with guitar walls and the very own signature sound of electronic post-rock sound.

The new album The End of Something will be released in summer 2019 in line of the 10th anniversary of the duo. Furthermore, a retrospective LP box set with the best from 10 years of Collapse and some rarities is planned as a strictly limited, numbered and signed triple vinyl box.

The band was founded in summer 2008 in Hamburg and released their debut album Systembreakdown in spring 2009. Since then, Collapse Under The Empire have released instrumental, experimental and very atmospheric music on seven studio albums, 3 EPs and various singles, covering musical styles from post-rock to ambient to ice-cold electronica with references to Talk Talk and Mogwai.

Since their second album Find A Place To Be Safe (2010), Collapse Under The Empire have established themselves internationally in the post-rock scene and made a name for themselves. Influential international magazines such as Rock Sound, Q-Magazine and Clash are always enthusiastic about the band's cinematic and independent sound. Since 2012 the band releases their music on their own label Finaltune Records.

KERRETTA "Exiscens":

[image]

Surprises. Remember those? The possibility of having to wait for some- thing and not knowing what it was about what it looked or sounded like, or what gift was inside. Like a present as a kid that you shook, hoping to hear the clickity-clunk of LEGO’s or feel the hard-fold of a book cover. You may have known what was inside, but there was still the ele- ment of surprise. The age-old feeling of deferred gratification.

“I wonder if it’s a bicycle?” Four years after the release of their third LP Pirohia (2014), Kerretta’s new LP captures tracks from around that time, as well as way back to their first recordings. Exiscens is a collection of digital-only released tracks, unreleased outtakes, new songs and rarities starting from the days prior to their first 7" release (2007) until now. From the bulldozer riffs of The Trouble With Us recorded around the same time as the Vilayer LP (2009) sessions, the ambient wash of Ornithomancy, a re-work of the Pitch Black track Bird Soul, to the recent and unleashed Chroma Queens. The vault has been cracked open to release some glorious goodies all ready for Xmas 2018.

Should you choose to pre-order Exiscens, you wont know what the album will sound like until release date. You wont see the cover until it’s either in your mailbox or digitally available. It does have the previously released tracks From Elbow To Claw and The Guardsmen on it. The surprise you won’t get: any tracks with any traceably noticeable ska, waltz, or EDM. These will all find a new home on heavy pressed 12" LP vinyl and digital. Surprises. Remember those?

Tracklist
1. Uncapital
2. The Trouble With Us
3. Are We Lost
4. Nothing Seismic
5. The Guardsmen
6. Chroma Queens
7. Ornothomancy
8. From Elbow To Claw

DEWAERE "Slot Logic":

[image]

Dewaere is a french noise punk band from Saint-Brieuc claiming to play loud, heavy, noisy rock and influenced by 1990’s bands and post- punk. The band consists of vocalist Maxwell Farrington, guitarist Julien Henry, bassist Marc Aumont and drummer Hugues Le Corre.

If you had to live your last moments amongst piles of rubble, sporting your half shredded swimmers, walking around a pool miraculously still intact, Slot Logic by Dewaere would be the perfect sound track to suit such an apocalyptic occasion.

In amongst the album's sour guitars and mg42 style rhythms, the intense, boiling sounds from Dewaere peak the adrenaline throws that your first grenade; while the heart drums fast, ready to pounce.

THE ENTREPRENEURS "Noise & Romance":

[image]

Noise & Romance is the debut album by Copenhagen-based noise rockers The Entrepreneurs. The album is a potent exploration of modern rock and the trio enjoy a reputation as one of the fiercest live bands in their native Denmark, and with their debut album they're ready to take on the world. Their noisy songs are aesthetically rich and experimental variations on some rock’s most significant subgenres like punk, grunge, post-rock - always performed with an underlying dark and explosive feel.

Other than being the album’s title, the concepts of noise and romance have both been central to the band from the get-go as they perfectly describe their explosive songs and romantic lyrics.

The album’s lead singles, Joaquin and Heroine, have already seen international coverage, including airplay on heavyweights like BBC 6 Music and a plethora of local stations around Europe, as well as online support from The Line of Best Fit, the405, Everything Is Noise and many more. The Entrepreneurs are also performing on the next edition of the influential industry festival Eurosonic in the Netherlands.

Noise & Romance is equally hard-hitting, experimental and emotional. Mathias’ vocal style has been compared to singers like Jeff Buckley, their rhythmic approach to guitar riffs and distorted vocal effects aren’t unlike what Deftones incorporate in their unique style of metal, and finally the driving and repetitive beats and use of synthesizers on Noise & Romance bring back memories of the heyday of both kraut rock and bands like Sonic Youth.

HAZARDS OF SWIMMING NAKED "Take Great Joy":

[image]

Hazards Of Swimming Naked are a Brisbane, Australia based 5 piece instrumental band originating from Queensland's tropical far north. The humidity and vibrancy of that region permeates their music and culminates in a sound which shares all the cinematic grandeur of artists such as Mogwai, Godspeed You Black Emperor and Mono. Over the past ten years they have written and recorded two full length studio albums Our Lines Our Down (2009) and the new album Take Great Joy (2018).

Hazards Of Swimming Naked have headlined sold out shows and performed live soundtracks to multiple short and full length films. They have also shared stages with many of the most iconic artists in the genre – Mono, sleepmakeswaves, 65daysofstatic, This Will Destroy You, And So I Watch You From Afar & more. Hazards Of Swimming Naked are an unique, slow-moving flower, but one that is truly beautiful when in full bloom. Take Great Joy is their first full-length studio album in 9 years, it marks a continuation of the intricate and beautiful melodic compositions that marked their debut all the way back in 2009.

The band comments: "This album took a while to make, perhaps far too long. We all live pretty safe lives, maybe not secure, but safe, relatively sheltered from many of the dangers and problems in the world. What meaningful things can we say as artists? What we know is music, and how much we enjoy it, writing, and performing. So this album is basically music about music, it's an embrace of the process of making music and enjoying it. There's an earnestness about it which is oblivious to the cult of irony found in many aspects of the music industry. The album takes its title from a vocal sample where the subject talks about what it means to live."

Take Great Joy also contains the first Hazards track to feature singing. Adrian recorded a friend singing a well known Icelandic lullaby in an apartment in Reykjavik, Iceland. The lullaby “sofðu unga ástin mín” and tune are over 100 years old. The arrangement of the track was built around this accapella recording of Bjarnheiður's voice. It's part Massive Attack, part Earth, part School of Emotional Engineering.

Hazards Of Swimming Naked Take Great Joy will be available from Bird's Robe Records on November 30th, 2018 with a vinyl release scheduled for early 2019.

MILES OLIVER "Color Me"

[image]

"A kind of french Vic Chesnutt with a hoarse voice and divine dark universe." - Olivier Peel

Miles Oliver is a parisian songwriter, swinging electric & acoustic guitar, piano and loops. After Breathe (2014), and his second album I Miss Boredom (2016), his third release Color Me will be released in November 2018.

Passion and intensity define Miles Oliver as a folk songwriter of a new genre and time. Before singing his dreamy, dark and haunting melodies, the Parisian troubadour played a lot of rock and hardcore. His now folk music keeps the energy, tension and emergency of his previous musical efforts. Miles Oliver is a one-man band.

Color Me enunciates an exciting new alchemy of lo-fi rock, sad folk and poetry that reminds of acts like Bonnie Prince Billy, Sonic Youth and Troy Von Balthazar. Miles Oliver has played more than 200 shows in USA, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republik. He shared stage with Shannon Wright, Troy Von Balthazar, King Dude, Francois Virot, Jonah Matranga and House Of Wolves.
