Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (O.M.D.)

Synth-pop pioneers OMD return with their dazzling 13th studio album, ''The Punishment of Luxury,'' which sees them combine the wistful nostalgia and idealised romance of their previous work while stepping out of their comfort zone. The LP is out September 1st on White Noise. This is the follow up to the critically acclaimed ''English Electric'' (released in 2013). ''The Punishment Of Luxury'' is a daring collection of stylish synth pop and masterful songwriting, which will certainly rank alongside their very best. Written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD--Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys--the album is the sound of a band in their prime. ''On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises and repetitive patterns,'' explains Andy. ''The trouble is, we just can't help but write a catchy melody!'' Described by The Quietus as ''not just one of the best synth bands ever, they are one of the best bands ever,'' OMD's influence has become ubiquitous. The XX, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy have cited Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark as an inspiration, and the likes of Future Islands and Chvrches show traces of OMD's DNA.

The Mountain Has Fallen EP [Vinyl]

‘The Mountain Has Fallen’ starts with “Systematic,” DJ Shadow and Nas’ first-ever collaboration together.  The song debuted during the season premiere of HBO’s Silicon Valley in April.  “Horror Show” finds Shadow and Danny Brown collaborating for the first time over a jagged, haunting soundscape.  “Good News” is a brand new composition, reminiscent of some of Shadow’s more free-form, fractured work found on 2016’s ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ full-length. 

The EP closes with “Corridors,” a piece featuring Academy Award-winning composer Steven Price (who scored the ‘Gravity’ film). Shadow is a massive fan of his work, and Price wrote and programmed the string parts on the song. 

"From the start of my last album, I envisioned collaborating with other instrumentalists who operate outside of the bass and hip-hop realms, ultimately working with the amazing Nils Frahm and Matthew Halsall.  Like many, I had always been enthralled by the soundtrack for the film 'Gravity,' and went about connecting with Steven purely as a fan.  I was overjoyed when the opportunity to combine on a song came to pass.  His ability to harness orchestral elements and join them with a sound design aesthetic made my contributions seem almost effortless, which is the mark of a fruitful partnership." – DJ Shadow, on “Corridors”

“Turns out sometimes you should meet your heroes.  Working with Josh to create ‘Corridors,’ hearing musical ideas and phrases come back to me twisted and skewed through the filter of his unique sensibilities, was an amazing experience.  The mark of a good collaboration is when the track heads off in a direction you could never have imagined when working on your own, and no one puts a track together like DJ Shadow.  It was an honour to work with him.” – Steven Price, on “Corridors”

‘The Mountain Has Fallen’ comes on the heels of a tremendous year for the legendary DJ and producer. He performed at Coachella 2017, marking his fifth appearance overall at the festival. He recently launched his KCRW show called Find, Share, Rewind, which airs at 10PM the first Saturday of each month.  His extensive ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ tour continues through 2017 and has seen him circle the globe more than once since launching in 2016, with recent dates in Australia, Japan and Europe.  He will finish his 2017 dates in London in October.  Shadow released his latest feature album ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ via Mass Appeal Records to raves last year, which lead to a performance on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Run The Jewels.  The music video for that track, “Nobody Speak,” just won the 2017 A2IM Libera Award for Best Music Video.

Iteration

New CD: $14.98 Buy

"Repetition is a form of change," reads one of Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies. Seth Haley knows the concept well, and his style of technicolour synth-wave takes the mantra as a challenge. Six years after Galactic Melt introduced the cosmic story of Com Truise, Iteration now concludes his sprawling saga. True to its name, the album is built on Com Truise hallmarks: neon-streaked melodies, big drums, robotic grooves, bleary nostalgia. But Iteration is also the most elegant and streamlined that Haley's singular music has ever sounded. At the album's heart is an elaborate narrative, one full of longing, hope, anxiety, and triumph. Iteration illustrates the last moments Com Truise spends on the perilous planet Wave 1, before he and his alien love escape its clutches to live in peace. "...Of Your Fake Dimension" launches the interstellar drama with its anthemic swells and widescreen sound design, before lovesick songs like "Dryswch" and "Propagation" outline scenes wrought with cybernetic pathos. Later, the frantic rhythms of "Syrthio" conjure images of panicked flight as Haley's gorgeous synth melodies gild the action in quiet heartbreak. Then comes the resounding "When Will You Find The Limit…", when Iteration's pain and sadness finds liberation in the vast unknown. The closing title track ends it all in a gush of majestic revelry. So goes the winding story that Iteration tells, and yet there's more behind its telling. "I try hard not to write from my personal life, but it's inevitably going to seep into the music," Haley explains. "It's basically like I'm scoring this film in my head, but that film I'm scoring is also somehow my life." There are glimpses of the difficult time the East Coast native spent adjusting to a new life in Los Angeles, fighting homesickness and burnout while also touring the world. It was a time full of uncertainty, transition, and self-realization. After a year and a half of living in California, Hayley finally recaptured his creativity by finding new excitement in his work. "I put more air, more breathing room in the music-- that was the big change," he says. And once that clicked, the album just poured out of him. "It was like an information dump. I feel like I finished the record in two weeks." Such a clear refinement of the Com Truise sound took time to develop, but Iteration is well worth the patience and perseverance it cost. Some of Haley's smartest, catchiest work is here, from the weightless pop of "Isostasy" to "Ternary"'s lush synth-funk. A song like "Vacuume" somehow balances massive bass drops and smashing drums with angelic gasps, and "Usurper" gracefully pairs subtle poignancy and uplifting dance beats. "For me, it feels like change," Hayley says of his second album, and yes, this is Com Truise like never before. By embracing the music's inherent nature and peerless qualities, Iteration finds new avenues of expression in its vivid, familiar surroundings.
