Royksopp

Röyksopp doing what Röyksopp’s does best with a little help from Susanne Sundfør.   A beautiful track for winter with a driving heart beat set against a cinematic soundscape.

Von Haze – Mother Mountain

Rather Bauhaus-esque with the delayed, fx drum sounds and sinister bassline that dominates this very dark track.

Press Release:

Prior to the project’s formation, Katherine was working in the fashion industry for the likes of Alice Roi and Marc Jacobs and Travis was working as a woodworker and photo editor. Although they were always creatively active making music, their day jobs still held precedence. In 2009 they met Richard Fearless of Death In Vegas who later became their producer and they began recording their first music as Von Haze. Travis at that time also joined Death In Vegas as their touring guitarist. Fearless set them up to record in the famous Keyclub Recording Co., a former locksmith’s building turned music studio in Michigan where The Kills, Franz Ferdinand, and Cass McCombs have all recorded. They released a 7’’ in 2009 followed by an EP in 2010 which became the first release of the now influential indie label, Hippos In Tanks. It received praise from reviewers and had peers such as Blondes, CREEP, and White Car doing remixes for them.

Von Haze spent early part of last year recording Kar Dee Akk Ake at a secluded farm upstate in freezing weather conditions. For this collection the duo moved away from the washed-out shoegaze that permeates their earlier recordings into a realm of more restrained minimalist electronic sound all while retaining that sexy and drugged feeling that only they can deliver.

For those in the New York area, VON HAZE is playing the following date:
