New TVOTR Album

(I don;t know why I lack on posts, it just happens that way...)

Last week, Pitchfork Media had the first details on TV On The Radio's upcoming album, Dear Science,. It got me rather excited, as 'Return To Cookie Mountain' was quite possibly my favorite album from 2006. Then today, I catch this stellar review over at Rolling Stone, and I'm doing fucking headspins on my desk!!1

So they touring in September, but no stop in Toronto. Do us a favour? Check their show and tell me how it was. Cheers.

Album is out Sept. 23rd, GIT IT!

Amon Tobin Dot Com

There are run-of-the-mill artist websites where nothing ever changes and flash looks disguise lack of content. That’s around 90% of them accounted for. Then there are those few where you get stuff you’re not getting anywhere else.

Once a month for the next six months, Amon Tobin will be releasing one exclusive track (not previously released on any album) made available for sale directly through his web site. But not only is there exclusive material, there’s the chance to generate your own exclusive material. Site users are being invited to submit videos for these songs for compilation on an eventual DVD release.

Tobin’s web site already features a community element. The Fans’ Videos section of the site provides a platform for people to submit their own films for his tracks. Tobin’s music is known for being cinematic and providing a perfect accompaniment to moving pictures (as evidenced in his score of films such as 'Taxidermia' and games such as 'Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory'). You only have to look at the list of his scored and licensed works (also on the site, in the Media section) to see that. Amon Tobin has decided to embrace this marriage of music and image and see what results are forthcoming.

Don’t get us wrong, though – Tobin’s site has enough bells and whistles to keep any midget-attention span satisfied. Check out the game that’s prominently featured - through a 360 degree search and a series of clicks, you can unlock the creatures that live within the site to witness a unique demonstration of 3D animation in synch with Amon’s scores. Set up the right speakers and note that the whole experience is in surround sound.

In addition to the exclusive tracks in the coming months, Tobin will be offering a digital release of his soundtrack to 'Taxidermia', live mixes, ringtones and ringbacks, as well as new designs for t-shirts, hats, posters, desktops, CDs and vinyl. You can stay posted by grabbing the Amon Tobin Gydget.

So stop reading, log on, enjoy.

Kid Koala's Montreal

XLR8R.TV on Revision 3 catches up with turntablist legend, Kid Koala, for a personalized tour of his hometown Montreal, Quebec.

Man, I love that city. Seeing the sites in the vid, even for only a brief period of time, reminds me I have to make that trek up the 401 for another weekend of culture and debauchery sooner than later!

R.I.P. Jonny Cern

Sad news today out of New Zealand, Jonny Beck from the high praised production duo Cern, has passed away.

2008 was a real breakout year for Cern after a number of prized tracks released on various Triple Vision in-house labels. Their latest on Syndrome Audio ('Voodooguru' b/w 'Tense Passed') was exceptional, drawing stunning comparrison to the early work of Ed Rush & Optical on Virus.

This is a great loss for dnb and humanity itself. He will be sorely missed.

The Bug Hits North America

Great news out of the Ninja Tune camp, The Bug is set to embark on a mini tour of North America this month in support of his forthcoming album, 'London Zoo' (out now!).

Thankfully, the Toronto collective, The Curb Crawlers, has graciously stepped up and secured a date with the man, July 24th at The Drake Hotel. And riding shotgun this stretch, Warrior Queen! (should be HYPE!)

To sample the selection of the London Zoo album, checks this minimix by Kode9.

Looking forward to some rumbling rupturous bass riddims like this:

Portishead Interview With Last.FM

Last.FM just upped a tidy little interview with the men behind the music of the dynamic Portishead. In the video, Geoff and Adrian talk about their early experiences and influences in "music", those which have helped shape and mold the Portishead legend into what it is today.

(Love this type of interview, very personal and full of insight.)


NME Mag reports today that the band expects to record their fourth album later this year.
