YVES TUMOR NEW SINGLE “NOID” OUT NOW

July 25th, 2018

YvesTumor

TORONTO, ON – July 25, 2018 -  Yves Tumor? Try to unravel, and the dimensions and personas spill out like the cracked and warped contents of a grotesquely beautiful matryoshka doll. A gothic soundscape auteur? Details are scant, so the music does most of the talking… except the scarce occasion when Yves offers a few words: “A lot of people are confused about my actual whereabouts, but that’s OK,” posited in a rare interview from last year.

To see Yves Tumor step upon a stage is to be thrashed by a howling cyberpunk fiend – yet filter the recorded output and be treated to a kaleidoscopic union of classic songwriting and lobotomized sound experiments.  The duality unveils subtly but hints and images can be parsed from music and lyrics, giving that impression that on experience and listen it just might be possible that everything will come perfectly into focus.

This huge and contorted pop masterpiece called ‘Noid’ is diabolically rowdy, yet absolute in it’s crepuscular message of contemporary dread. It also seems the perfect place to start……

TORONTO, ON – July 25, 2018 -  IDLES have shared a searing takedown of toxic masculinity entitled “Samaritans,” along with music video (directed by Theo Watkins) that compiles archival clips skewing traditional masculine imagery. Fader called the track “one of their most confrontational songs to date,” listen/watch here and feel free to share: https://youtu.be/si2pZRifgIo

Speaking to the song’s message, frontman Joe Talbot says:

There’s been a long line of bullshit that has pushed men into a corner, where simple masking becomes a trope of masculinity and a catalyst for insanity. What we wear, what we eat, what razor we use, high performance chewing gum, go faster shampoo, how we treat women, how we treat ourselves, how we die. I truly believe that masculinity has gone from an evolution of cultural praxis to a disease. I wanted to encourage a conversation about gender roles by writing this song.

“Samaritans” is off IDLES’ upcoming LP Joy as an Act of Resistance. – out 8/31 on Partisan and mixed by Nick Launay and Adam “Atom” Greenspan (Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kate Bush). Last week Greg Kot of Sound Opinions featured another album highlight, pro-immigration anthem “Danny Nedelko,“ while calling the band “one of the great forthcoming bands in the world because of what they’re saying in their songs and how they’re saying it.”

IDLES will tour the US for the first time ever this fall, and they’ll be coming north for a few Canadian dates including Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. North American dates below, Full routing here: https://www.idlesband.com/

GAIKA WATCH VIDEO FOR SOPHIE CO-PRODUCED “IMMIGRANTS SONS (PESOS &GAS)”

July 11th, 2018

DEBUT ALBUM BASIC VOLUME OUT JULY 27TH DIGITALLY VIA WARP RECORDS 

PHYSICAL TO BE RELEASED SEPTEMBER 28TH

GAIKA

TORONTO, ON – July 11, 2018 - GAIKA has shared the cinematic new video for new track ‘Immigrant Sons (Pesos & Gas)’, taken from his forthcoming debut album BASIC VOLUME, out digitally on July 27 via Warp Records. Watch now on YouTube.

Produced by GAIKA and SOPHIE, ‘Immigrant Sons (Pesos & Gas)’ is a rallying cry that pushes the Brixton artist’s sound into new melodic territories, whilst maintaining the progressive edge on which he’s made his name. Directed by ‘Crown & Key’ video director Paco Raterta, the ‘Immigrant Sons’ urgent and startling visuals reflect the fresh sonic palette of the track.

GAIKA’s boundary pushing debut album BASIC VOLUME takes its name from the company that belonged to his late father. GAIKA says “BASIC VOLUME takes its name of from my fathers maroon technology. It is the science he taught me before he left this world. It is the poetry we grew under and were made strong by its force. With this knowledge I fought until my hands bled, propelled into combat by the god of metals. It’s all true, I nearly lost my heart to angry memories, waking dreams of burnt out laboratories and dead friends. I am this chemistry and it is I and so I wrote it here. BASIC VOLUME is collection of alchemical parables for all the Immigrants who wander the earth in search of themselves”.

GAIKA will celebrate the release of BASIC VOLUME with series of new live dates, including a sold out show at Peckham’s Tola on September 26th. A second London show has been announced for September 25th. See below for a full list of shows. Tickets are available now.

GAIKA has also curated SYSTEM, an evocative art installation at Somerset House Studios telling the history of sound system culture in London commissioned by Boiler Room. SYSTEM challenges the media perception of Carnival by showcasing a fair representation of the stories, characters, statistics and under celebrated sound system culture at Carnival and beyond. It forms part of a wider campaign from Boiler Room to celebrate the positive cultural impact of migration. This will take place from 1 August and run until 26 August

BASIC VOLUME is available digitally on 27th July. GAIKA can now announce that the album will be released on vinyl and CD on the 28th September and available to preorder now.
