Dexter Gordon – One Flight Up

En udgivelse på Blue Note’s ny serie Tone Poet, hvor der virkeligt er blevet kælet for lyden.

Iceage – Seek Shelter

Iceage skubber gang på gang til grænserne for, hvordan deres musik kan lyde, og den kommende udgivelse er ingen undtagelse. Elementer af blues og gospel samt bandets nyeste tilføjelse, guitaristen Casper Morilla Fernandez, spiller op ad eksperimenterende produktioner. Det danner ramme for nye udtryk som romantiske Jacques Brel-noter på “Drink Rain”, ubarmhjertige hævntemaer på “Vendetta” og fængslende og tight flirt med en The Clash-lignende funk på “High & Hurt”. ​Seek Shelter​ er produceret i samarbejde med den legendariske producer Sonic Boom (Peter Kember fra Spacemen 3) samt bandets faste partner Nis Bysted. Albummet er mixet af Shawn Everett (HAIM, The Killers, Vampire Weekend, The War On Drugs), som formår at bringe de mange facetter sammen til et nyt, samlet punkt for det københavnske band, der allerede vækker genklang overalt i verden.

Iceage har gennem mere end et årti været i konstant bevægelse, fra den internationalt roste debutplade ​New Brigade ​(2011) til opfølgeren ​You’re Nothing (2013)​, d​ er cementerede deres status som punkrockens nye bannerførere og frem mod ​Plowing Into The Field Of Love (​ 2014) og ​Beyondless ​(2018), som i stigende grad udvidede bandets lyd med blandt andet klaver, strygere, country-inspirerede guitarriffs og langsomme, storladne kompositioner. Iceage tilføjer konstant elementer til deres soniske palette, samtidig med at de bibeholder den nerve som kendetegner bandet. De har været igennem en stor musikalsk og personlig udvikling fra begyndelsen i den hyperlokale undergrund af København, til scener over hele verden gennem årene, hvor bandet trods deres stadigt unge alder har spillet hundredvis af koncerter hvert år siden debuten.

Seek Shelter​ er kommet til verden over tolv intense dage i et tidligere radiostudie i Lissabon. Omgivelserne faciliterede en blanding af ny sjæl og nostalgi, studiet med huller i det høje loft krævede klude hængende over et utal af spande for forhindre regndråber i at blive fanget af mikrofonerne mens Peter Kember havde fyldt hele rummet med havelamper. Det er den længste tid Iceage nogensinde har brugt på at indspille en plade, og det er første gang en anden producer end Nis Bysted bistår som en del af processen.

Elias Bender Rønnenfelt beskriver produceren Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) som en unik sparringspartner; et nyt sind, der både kunne forstå og udfordre de ideer, som bandet bragte til bordet. Partnerskabet kom i stand efter at Iceage havde læst et interview med Kember, hvori han udtrykte begejstring for bandet og et ønske om samarbejde – et ønske, som var gengældt af Iceage. Rønnenfelt husker, hvordan han som 12-13 årig lyttede til Spacemen 3, som Kember grundlagde som 16 årig i 1982. “Det var en af de ting der bare resonerede i mit væsen. Med ​Seek Shelter havde vi brug for en producer, der kunne komme med et andet perspektiv end vores eget – måske mere en magiker end en egentlig producer. Det ønske viste sig at blive opfyldt. Han [Peter Kember] ankom på førstedagen i Lissabon med en vognfuld af mærkeligt gear vi aldrig havde set før, og hans tilgang virkede perfekt for os.” Kember udtaler selv om bandet: “they’re fucking show offs, like everyone who was ever great and emotional and honest.”

Two singles were released from the album: both the title track and “The Modern Rome Burning”. Other popular songs from this album are “Good And Ready”, “Spit In The Face” and “Vices”. The song “Wake Up The Town” features guest vocals by Billy Talent-songer Benjamin Kowalewicz. Produced by Tony Visconti, Anti-Flag sounds fiery and angry as ever on this album.

OST – 300: Rise Of An Empire

300: Rise of an Empire is a 2014 American epic action film written and produced by Zack Snyder and directed by Noam Murro. It is a sequel to the 2007 film 300, taking place before, during, and after the main events of that film, and is loosely based on the Battle of Artemisium and the Battle of Salamis.

Its score was created by Dutch DJ and composer Junkie XL. This was made possible because in 2013, Hans Zimmer became responsible for the creation of the score to Snyder’s Man of Steel, for which he asked Junkie XL to collaborate with him and Snyder loved the end result. The score to 300: Rise of an Empire was performed by the Hollywood Studio Symphony, led by Nick-Glennie Smith. The vocals were provided by Hilda Örvarsdóttir and MC Rai. Junkie XL himself added the guitar, bass, drums, piano and synthesizer parts and mixed the full soundtrack at the Computer Hell Cabin studio.

This is a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on translucent red vinyl. The package includes an insert with pictures from the movie.

OST – The Place Beyond The Pines

The Place Beyond the Pines is Derek Cianfrance 2012 crime drama film. The critically acclaimed film reunites Cianfance and Ryan Gosling, whom had previously collaborated on 2010’s Blue Valentine. It also stars Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta.

Mike Patton, American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal/experimental rock bands Faith No More and Mr. Bungle, delivers a sweeping and brooding score. Like a red thread, his music guides the audience through this multi-generational story often linking characters and locations.

In addition to Mike’s score, the album features an eclectic selection of music by the likes of Bon Iver (“The Wolves”), Ennio Morricone (“Ninna Nanna Per Adulteri”) & The Cryin’ Shames (“Please Stay”).

Accept is a German heavy metal band from the town of Solingen, originally assembled by former vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann and bassist Peter Baltes. Their beginnings can be traced back to the late ‘60s.

Staying a Life is available on black vinyl.

OST – It Follows

The film was met with much critical acclaim and established Monroe as the movie industry’s newest “scream queen”.

It Follows features a stunning, electronic-driven score, heavy with pulsating synths and dread in equal measure. It was composed by the renowned musician Disasterpeace. This electro, 80s influenced score is a character in itself in the movie, and will haunt the listener long after the film has stopped rolling.

This is a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on translucent red vinyl. There are some secret inscriptions in the run-out groove.
