DANIEL LANOIS ALBUM FLESH AND MACHINE OUT NOW
New Video For “Sioux Lookout”
2015 European Tour Dates Announced
Watch the seductive and entrancing new video for the song “Sioux Lookout” here:
Exploring the ever evolving relationship between musicians and technology, Flesh And Machine takes organic instrumentation and alters the sounds with an assortment of recording technologies in real time. Initially conceived as an ambient album, the record stylistically references the classic Brian Eno albums Lanois worked on as a brilliant bedrock to stand on to see the sonic future. As Eno remarked, “Dan Lanois is just about the most musical person I’ve ever met.”
Oscar winning composer and NIN collaborator Atticus Ross writes, “Flesh and Machine is a compelling listen. While it’s true a couple of the songs evoke the groundbreaking work Lanois did alongside Eno in the early 80’s what seems more important is that he’s harnessed that same spirit of adventure and freedom which made those records so iconic. Organic at it’s core it’s the intense and unique processing of the elements that give the album it’s electronic edge , and the achievement lies in retaining a sense of spontaneity and danger – Flesh and Machine feels alive and unpredictable.”
This November 10th at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, Lanois will curate “Anti-Thesis.” The evening will feature performances from Lanois, The Antlers and Tinariwen as well as special guest Lonnie Holley. It is a celebration of music from vastly different origins which exists outside of traditional genres, structures and rules.

VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE, ‘EAT YOU ALIVE’, UNVEILED BY RAMMSTEIN GUITARIST RICHARD KRUSPE’S EMIGRATE
SECOND EMIGRATE ALBUM, ‘SILENT SO LONG’, SET FOR RELEASE VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS ON NOVEMBER 24th
FILMED in Berlin by director Zoran Bihac, the man behind Rammstein’s legendary ‘Mein Teil’ clip, the video forEMIGRATE’s new ‘Eat You Alive’ single sees Richard Kruspe emerging from the deep in truly striking style, flanked by some of the musicians who appear on the forthcoming ‘Silent So Long’ album, with Joe Letz fromCombichrist taking over on drums (Letz also appears in the clip for ‘My World’, a track from the debut EMIGRATEalbum, released in 2007; Apocalyptica’s Mikko Siren handles drum parts on the new album).
Alongside Kruspe and Letz, the video also features Margaux Bossieux on bass and Arnaud Giroux on guitar, with vocalist Frank Delle – from chart-topping German collective Seeed – reprising his role on the album with evangelical zeal; Bossieux was previously with New York punk band Dirty Mary, while Frenchman Arnaud plays bass on the new album, as well as lending his production skills – in fact, his work on both EMIGRATE albums has been central to the cause.
For Kruspe, tapping into such varied musical personnel is very much in keeping with the ‘open door’ ethos of the project; as well as allowing the guitarist to keep his creative instincts finely honed, EMIGRATE was conceived as a vehicle for other musicians to have their say and leave their mark, harking back to the early, ever-shifting punk scene in East Berlin where he originally cut his teeth.
The result of re-kindling this spirit is a new 11-track album, ‘Silent So Long’, that sees a number of special guests adding to the overall flavour (Lemmy, Marilyn Manson, Peaches, etc.), plus a new single / video, ‘Eat You Alive’, that shows the kind of chemistry that might be conjured up were the musicians to decide to take to the road.
In the meantime, ‘Eat You Alive’ is available as an ‘instant grat’ when ‘Silent So Long’ is pre-ordered on iTunes.

L O W L Y premiered the video for their brand new single, ‘Stones in the Water’ via Clash yesterday and it is now available to stream/ embed via YouTube by clicking on the image above. Also available to stream via SoundCloud.
The single is released via Win-Win Records, 3rd November.
The band make their UK live debut at JaJaJa @The Lexington, Thursday 30thOctober
Driven by a crashing rhythmic force and insistent synth-lines ‘Stones in the Water’s lyric draws you into an almost mythical, shadowy description of nature: mysterious stones in water and tongues that glow in the dark. The video was created and directed by the Danish animation director William Reynish. Reynish has previously worked on music videos such as When Saints Go Machineʼs ‘Iodine’ and James Blakeʼs ‘Limit to Your Love’.
“The song is written about a canoeing trip in Canada I went on with my father and brother as a kid,” explains Soffie.“My dad would tell me tales of the loon on the lake and how the number of calls it made would be the same as the years you had left to live. Iʼm sure he meant well but I would stay up all night counting and being afraid to die! That loonʼs call put a serious mark on me! (And the sound is scary as hell!). The other parts of the song are mostly images and flickers from that trip.”
Lowly’s recent debut single Daydreamers picked up several plays on Lauren Laverne’s ‘Recommended’ show and served as an excellent introduction to the band’s restless, rousing pop, characterized by Nanna Schannong and Soffie Viemose’s lead vocals, typically sung in unison adding to the chorus’y psych vibe. The video has been added to theYouTube Spotlight “Emerging Artists From Across The Globe”
Hailing from Arhus, Denmark, Lowly only formed at the start of 2014 – although the 5 members had been eyeing each other’s talents for some time before finally joining forces. “We all respected and admired each other’s music a lot before actually playing together,” say the band. “Maybe there was a fear of ruining something already great, but when we finally did it, it turned out that we could make something together we couldn’t have done alone. And, relying on that, we’ve created music totally new to us all. The energy of these songs comes from our rehearsals, not from a lot of postproduction. We want people to be able to feel the inspiration and curiosity on the record. We really hope that comes across.”
Lowly is: Nanna Schannong (vocals, guitar) and Soffie Viemose (vocals,laptop), Kasper Staub (synthesizers), Thomas Lund (bass + Moog) and Steffen Lundtoft (drums and percussion).
