Micachu & the Shapes' New Album 'NEVER' Out Now
Micachu & the Shapes' second album 'NEVER' drops worldwide today! The follow-up to their 2009 debut 'Jewellery' was self-produced by the band, recorded at band member Marc Pell's studio in Stratford and mixed by Dillip Harris and the band.
We think the album cover looks like a Magic Eye picture (it's not - we tried and gave ourselves a migraine). It's actually, as the band explained to us, "70's Flock wallpaper put through the Micachu kaleidoscope".
Some nice words from the press about 'NEVER':
'Demented but catchy... Each listen is as fresh as the first' - 8/10 - NME
'MIA's younger, grungier sister' - 4/5 - The Financial Times
'Vital and fresh' - 4/5 - The Guardian
'Avant-pop's most lawless star' - Loud & Quiet
Over the past few months the trio Micachu, Raisa and Marc have been beavering away in their East London Docklands studio making music videos for EVERY track on the album which you can now watch HERE. Prepare to have your mind well and truly boggled...
In other exciting news, Animal Collective have hand-picked Micachu & the Shapes to support them on their US tour later this year. Tickets for all dates are on sale now.
CROATIAN BAND 'VJEŠTICE' RELEASED NEW SINGLE "AJMO SE DI BILO, CURICA"
They have not been teenagers for a long time, but they still didn't lose any of their youth wits. The popular Croatian group Vještice, and especially their composer and songwriter, Samuel (Srđan) Sacher (familiar for some of the biggest Croatian hits ever, such as "Moja prva ljubav" and "Totalno drukčiji od drugih") sound as refreshing as they have ever been.
After few years of pausing Vještice, renowned for very impressive mixture of rock and traditional Croatian music, got back on the scene with a new interesting single "Ajmo se di bilo, curica" (Girl, let's do it wherever), which contains provocative lyrics, but will surely amuse the listener and bring a smile to his face. :)
To ensure a high quality sound level, they have hired Andy Jackson for the mastering of the song. Jackson is an audio engineer who had cooperated with Pink Floyd for 30 years and has been nominated twice for the Grammy award for famous Pink Floyd albums "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" and "The Division Bell".
Besides Sacher, the song also owes to Boris Leiner, Miljan Bakić, Roy Nimai, Igor Barić, Jurica Jelić, Jurij Novoselić, Josip Lukin, Hernan Patricio Chambilla Cerreso and Janko Novoselić.
Vještice announced they would release a new single every 3 months and it would only be available in digital stores. For now they don't have plans for doing a physical release.
It is also interesting to mention that the guys from the band decided not to put the song anywhere for a free digital distribution (stream, Youtube, download links), but it would only and exclusively be available for listening on the regional radio stations.
"Let It Shine" (Ibiza Dub Radio Edit 2012) - new release by PlayOne feat. Barbara Tucker"
"Let it Shine" (Ibiza Dub Radio Edit 2012) is the second single announcing the Green Gold Music compilation released last month.
Although the original version of the song has originally been released in 2009, the new Ibiza Dub version is significantly different than its original, and due to its freshness and actuality, it will be distributed and promoted through one of the biggest house music labels - Defected Records.
After collaborations with the legendary Grammy awarded producer Andy Wright, the singer Mick Hucknall (of Simply Red), followed by the new British star Peter Grant, this is another significant star in PlayOne's music career.
The song authors are Darko Juranović D'Knock, DJ Fresh Jay and Barbara Tucker, while the video for the song is being made by UltraStar Video and 5 Group company.
