Moulettes
Constellations
2nd June 2014 – Navigator Records

The Moulettes return with their third studio album, and their first for the Navigator Records, ‘Constellations’ on June 2nd. Recorded in studios, churches, tunnels, workshops and bedrooms around Brighton and Lewes in the summer of 2013, the album features a host of guest performances from legends Arthur Brown (“God of Hellfire”) and Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed/David Bowie) and contemporaries Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), The Unthanks  and Emma Richardson (Band Of Skulls). Brighton dub troubadour Faye Houston and dubstep producer Mike Dennis (Dface) complete a supporting cast that emphasises the band’s desire to blend musical styles and experiment with sound in a way that has been a hallmark of their recordings to date. Thus ‘Constellations’ crosses varied and expansive musical territory over its ten tracks. As songwriter, cellist and front singer Hannah Miller notes, “People can listen to Moulettes and hear Shostakovich, Miles Davis, Pentangle, Pink Floyd, Bjork and Skrillex. That is where we’ve all come from…everyone shares in over 80 years of recorded music history”.

 

‘Constellations’ contains the headrush pop folk of ‘Glorious Year’, the psycho-drama of the title track and the noir trip hop of ‘Lady Vengeance’ in an opening salvo that is unlikely to be matched in scope by many, if any, albums released this year. An album criss-crossed with stories and imagery, ‘Constellations’ can accommodate the 20’s belle époque waltz of ‘The Night Is Young’, the progressive folk of ‘The Observatory’ and the death disco dub of album closer ‘Keep It As A Memory’ whilst remaining a cohesive piece that sparkles with inventiveness and creativity throughout.

 

Few bands have the musical range of The Moulettes. Containing a mix of self taught and classically trained members who have shared the stage and studio with the likes of Mick Jagger, Nick Cave, Seasick Steve, Bonobo and Dave Gilmour, their significant initial period was spent playing live and promoting the Den Of Iniquity nights in London that brought a host of acts to public prominence.  After seven years of being a live band it was only in 2009 that their eponymous debut was released. This was followed in 2011 by ‘The Bear’s Revenge’, an album that saw MOJO hail them as “complex and beautiful…intriguing and unique”Moulettes have constantly been on the road for 4 years and have played festivals as varied as Cropredy  to End of the Road. They continue their busy gig schedule throughout April and May prior to a host of summer festival dates (see below).
‘Constellations’ is released by Navigator Records on June 2nd.  www.navigatorrecords.co.uk

THE MENZINGERS PREMIERE MUSIC VIDEO: ‘I DON’T WANNA BE AN ASSHOLE ANYMORE’

http://youtu.be/TQBG7wAVWAA 
New Album Rented World Is Out Now on Epitaph and streaming in full on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcZMZxR9uxC9mvuSXl4e1UAA3uKX3p0rY
The Menzingers premiered a new video for their single ‘I Don’t Wanna Be An Asshole Anymore’ via Stereogum here and you can now watch it on YouTube. The track is off their new album Rented World which is out this week on Epitaph and streaming in full on YouTube. According to Pitchfork, “Menzingers excel in desperate, earnest melodic punk.” Noisey called the new album “one of the best records of the year.” and SPINrecognises Rented World for its “honest, vulnerable declarations.” Kerrang! have called it “A rock’n’roll monster” and Rock Sound recognise the band as “one of the tightest songwriting units in the indie punk scene.”

No longer housemates in Scranton, PA, the title Rented World, mirrors the band’s lifestyle since moving to Philly in 2008. The band was renting separate spaces around the city, but maintaining a practice space in North Philly where the majority of the record was written. Faithfully archetypal Rust Belt punk, Rented World is an album concerned with maintaining a sense of self, the softening of posture, and the burden of harsh realities.

The Menzingers kept it Philly-local for Rented World and enlisted Jonathan Low to engineer the album at Miner Street Recordings. Low’s distinctively rich Americana sound resonates through the careers of The War On Drugs, Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile, and The National.

The Menzingers didn’t write the answers into Rented World. The record admits to an in medias res that comes with one’s late 20s, old enough to know better, but still seeking greater wisdom.

In support of the new album, the band are touring the UK and mainland Europe from next week, kicking off with a special show at the Old Blue Last which sold out in five minutes flat. Full dates are listed below and tickets are available athttp://themenzingers.com.
