Four Tet – Pink [News/Listen]

Over the past year or so Kieran Hebden AKA Four Tet has been releasing a number of 12” singles via his own Text record label. For the benefit of those without a turntable he has decided to bring these tracks together in album form. This new collection of tracks is called Pink (artwork above). It has been released digitally via Hebden’s Text label today, and is available from all the usual places. There will be a CD release of the album too, although this is restricted to Japan only. You can listen to two of the tracks from the album below.

Ultraista [Listen]

Radiohead super producer Nigel Godrich has started a new music project and it’s awesome. His new musical venture is called Ultraista and it consists of himself, Mauro Refosco (Smashing Pumpkins/Beck/Atoms For Peace) and Laura Bettinson (formerly of Dimbleby and Capper, she now records as Femme). Not much else is known about the band, as information on the group’s website is scarce, however they appear to take their name from early-20th century Spanish literary movement ultraísmo. They do have Soundcloud, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Their debut album will be released on 2nd October via Temporary Residence, and you can hear two of the tracks from the album below.

Ultraista – Static Light

Ultraista – Small Talk

Atoms For Peace [Listen]

If you haven’t heard of Atoms For Peace you must have been living under a rock or in space for the last few years. Just in-case this applies to you then I will explain. They are the supergroup originally created by Thom Yorke of Radiohead, to tour his 2006 solo album The Eraser. The band played a small US tour in 2010 where they played the Coachella Festival, the only date outside of America played being the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. The band itself consists of Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker and long-time Radiohead collaborator and producer Nigel Godrich.

Since playing their final live date in Japan, all has been quiet with the band. That was until September 2011 when Thom Yorke confirmed that he was preparing an album by the band for release. Flea then also confirmed soon after in a separate interview that the band had recorded together and an album would be out soon. The album is expected to be released this year.

In April of this year Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich also performed a DJ set in LA using the name Atoms For Peace. At this DJ set they played several new songs, but it is still unclear whether these tracks were actual songs or remixes of Atoms for Peace songs. They also now have another DJ set lined up at MoMa PS1 in September. You can watch a video of the band performing Cymbal Rush from Fuji Rock Festival 2010 below.

Finally, earlier this month it was announced that the band would release its first music in the form of a 12” on Monkeytown Records, the label run by Modeselektor. This vinyl consists of a remix of the track Tamer Animals by Other Lives and on the B-side they have remixed their own song Other Side.

Tracklisting
A1. Other Lives – Tamer Animals (Atoms For Peace Remix)
B1. Atoms For Peace – Other Side (Stuck Together Remix)

You can listen to samples of both the tracks below, and keep an eye out for the album which will hopefully be out soon, it’s sure to be an amazing piece of music.

Koreless – Lost In Tokyo [Listen]

Fans of minimalist dubstep will no doubt be very exited that Glasgow based producer Koreless has finally released another track. If you have never heard of Lewis Roberts AKA Koreless before, then you would file him next to James Blake, Mount Kimbie and Four Tet in your record collections. His debut 12” was released last year on Pictures Music and is now considered quite a collectable as both tracks on that record have been very highly rated ever since their release, and many people, myself included, have been eagerly awaiting new tracks from him.

Finally late last year, Jamie xx featured a new track in his BBC Essential Mix. That track has now finally had a digital and vinyl release. It is aptly called “Lost In Tokyo”, as I imagine it’s the perfect music to listen to while cruising round Tokyo on a night bus. The vinyl is being released on Jacques Greene’s Vase label and his remix of Lost In Tokyo is on the B-side. You can stream the original track below along with the mix that Koreless did for The Boiler Room, which is one of my favourite Boiler Room mixes and contains both the tracks of his debut 12”.

It was released on Monday (23rd July) and is available for free download. It is a collaboration with OFWGKTA member Earl Sweatshirt and someone who calls themselves Captain Murphy. It’s a belter
