Underworld & The Necks Reveal "Appleshine Continuum" (#Drift, Ep 2, Pt. 6)

Electronic icons Underworld and Australian experimental trio The Necks have revealed a 47-minute film for "Appleshine Continuum", Part 6 of Episode 2, of their #DRIFT series.

Drift is an ongoing experiment that will regularly publish new Underworld material – music, film, stories, etc – via the band’s official website.

This Thursday’s DRIFT release, Episode 2 concludes with Appleshine Continuum – one of a series of collaborations between Underworld and The Necks. Recorded in a single take during two days of improvising at AIR Studios, Appleshine Continuum takes Underworld’s original version of Appleshine (Ep.2 Pt.1) as its starting point and quickly takes flight, only returning to Earth’s atmosphere after 47 mesmerising minutes….

“Sometimes they terrify me on stage... I get this thrill like they’re destroying their instruments right in front of me. Their personalities off-stage couldn’t be more different. They’re remarkably open and welcoming and generous, and they still seem to be full of wonder when you talk to them. They all have an ease and.. an ability to just enter into what’s going on, and not be judgmental.” – Karl

New Entry: Jaws Unleash New Single "Fear"

Birmingham indie pop/alt rock band Jaws have unleashed their new single "Fear".

The song is taken from their forthcoming new album 'The Ceiling', set to be released on April 5th. Pre-order it here

Jaws explain: "we wanted to try something different, and really step out of our comfort zone at times with this record and this is something we are all really proud of. I think it might be my favourite song that we've ever put together, not only musically but for how it opened the door to write the rest of the record. The song is about fight or flight, trying to live via love rather than fear."

Pixx Announces New LP ‘Small Mercies’, Streams "Disgrace"

UK indie pop artist Pixx (aka 23 year-old Hannah Rodgers) has announced the release of her new album ‘Small Mercies’.

The follow up to 2017's debut album The Age Of Anxiety, will be out on 7th June via 4AD. It was co-produced by Simon Byrt (who worked on both her EP and debut album) and Dan Carey, and sees Pixx assuming different personas to examine the damage done by religion, gender-based power hierarchies and stereotypes, the tipping point of Earth’s destruction and love. Pre-order you copy here.

“I felt more of a drive to write about certain subjects with this album,” Pixx says.  “Man negotiating with God, God negotiating with man and man negotiating with the planet.  I find it hard to have an understanding of relationships in general – I think everyone does – and the addictive tendency that we have to look for something that’s eternal is something that intrigues me.  So, if you love God maybe what draws you to that is the idea of something that’s never going to end and that really intense love often takes place in human relationships, too.”

Pixx has also shared the record;s lead single "Disgrace". "This song is about growing up in an ultra-conservative Catholic school which was restrictive and oppressive," Rodgers explains. "I think this is a lack of humanity in the way the system works, rather than teaching empathy and kindness it forces people into a dangerous self-loathing cycle. This is an ode to anyone trapped in a place they feel they don't belong."
