Last month, I came across the song “Tools” from Brooklyn band Yellerkin and got hooked on the song. Perhaps it’s because I’m a big fan of Hooray For Earth, which I hear in Yellerkin‘s killer single here. As of last week the song has a video, which has the band freaking out in the woods under spotlights.
Kat Burns, aka KASHKA is celebrating the one year anniversary of her album “Bound” by releasing an acoustic EP of select tracks. The EP, “Bones” will be released on the 28th of October on her own imprint, Play the Triangle Music. Fans can pre-order the album as of the 21st of October, with special limited edition treats up for grabs; from a hand made CD version to a original painting of the fan’s name, signed by Burns.
KASHKA will be performing an acoustic set, and an electro set on November 9th at the Drake Underground. Tickets for that are available at Soundscapes or here.
Tim Ross (Cash) and Liz Lawrence (David) are London electronic duo Cash+David, who are about to release a new single (“Bones”) on December 8 2014, through their own label. “Bones” is the follow-up to previous single “Pulse”, which topped Hype Machine’s charts (which I evidently missed the boat on). Better late than never.
Of the video, director Ben Clarkson says: “It is complicated to open a conversation about the way we depict our history and our identity. Stories are powerful, and the way histories are told often reinforce the power of the powerful. How we tell the story, how our oral, written and visual traditions transmit interpretations of the past affects our behaviour, our ontology, here in the present. I would love to discuss how there are different histories. I believe that the quiet stability that many of us enjoy is a phantasm. I believe we have a great deal of work to do in order to live with one another in a way that agrees with our values (or the values we’d like to have). History is not finished and we must take ownership of it, or others will do it for us.”
