After releasing an EP of dreamy and ethereal bedroom vibes last year, Berlin-by-way-of-Kyoto’s CuusHe is ready to spread her wings into more dynamic grooves. She does just that on her latest single titled “I Love You.” As it opens, the tune slowly simmers with bubbling disco synths and a tight, bouncing beat. CuusHe’s vocals are nearly effervescent as they flow in layer upon layer along the tune’s groove. Then, just over a minute into the tune, it breaks into a steady boil with an upbeat and blissful rhythm as she chants sweetly “I love you” over and over again. It’s hypnotic and irresistible.

London electronic duo Mount Kimbie have extracted another piece off their upcoming sophomore LP Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. Following the pair’s first single “Made to Stray” is the new cut “Blood and Form,” featuring a woozy metronome beat at its center. [Source]
Mount Kimbie, comprised of South Londoners Dominic Maker and Kai Campos, recently released a single, “Made To Stray”, from their forthcoming album due out in late May. Entitled “Cold Spring Fault Less Youth”, the album will have 12 tracks in all and will be released through Warp Records. The single has a similar feel to their “Crooks & Lover” album which came out in 2010, but with a more refined sound, both musically and production-wise… which can be attributed at least in part to the fact that their recording this new album in the studio rather than in a bedroom.

The song was covered by the Scottish singer Lulu in 1974, who, according to biographer David Buckley, performed it in “a sleazy, almost Berlin cabaret style”. Lulu would recall Bowie inviting her to a concert he gave after which he met her in his hotel room saying: “I want to make an MF of a record with you because you’re a great singer.” Lulu – “I didn’t think it would happen but Bowie followed up two days later. He was übercool at the time and I just wanted to be led by him. I loved everything he did. I didn’t think ‘The Man Who Sold the World’ was the greatest song for my voice, but it was such a strong song in itself. I had no idea what it was about. In the studio Bowie kept telling me to smoke more cigarettes, to give my voice a certain quality.” Bowie produced the Lulu recording of “The Man Who Sold the World” with Mick Ronson during the Pin Ups sessions and also contributed guitar, saxophone and backing vocals. The remainder of the band included Ronson on guitar, Trevor Bolder on bass, Mike Garson on piano, and Aynsley Dunbar on drums. Lulu’s “The Man Who Sold the World” was released as a single on 11 January 1974 having been introduced by Lulu on the TOTP broadcast of 10 January 1974: the track only made its Top 50 debut (at #27) on the chart dated 16 January 1974 following a reprise performance by Lulu on the 24 January 1974 TOTP broadcast with a third TOTP performance by Lulu on the 7 February 1974 broadcast facilitating a boost from #13 to #5 on the chart dated 9 February 1974. In her TOTP performances in support of “The Man Who Sold the World” Lulu has been characterized as “dressed and sounding exactly like a diminutive Bowie”. On the UK Top 50 dated 16 February 1974 Lulu’s “The Man Who Sold the World” rose to #3 which proved to be the peak position for the track which subsequently made an accelerated chart descent with its overall Top 50 tenure being a comparatively brief nine weeks. Internationally “The Man Who Sold the World” afforded Lulu a major hit hit in Ireland (#8), the Netherlands (#10) and Germany (#13): the track was also a minor chart item in Australia at #81.
“Discovering Japan” by Graham Parker from the album “Squeezing Out Sparks”. In the late ’70s you had The Stones with “Some Girls,” Elvis Costello with “This Year’s Model,” Bruce with “Darkness,” and a “new discovery” that had been around forever, Graham Parker. He had been making records with his group, The Rumour, since the early 1970s. Much like Costello, his first three albums were also produced by Nick Lowe. In many ways this Jack Nitzsche-produced gem was his breakout album and deservedly so! Featuring tight hooks and enough anger to further fuel the Punk movement, Parker hatched this classic that still holds up over thirty years later. [Source]
Her heart is nearly breaking, the earth is nearly quaking
The Tokyo taxi’s braking, it’s screaming to a halt
And there’s nothing to hold on to when gravity betrays you
And every kiss enslaves you
She knows how hard her heart grows under the nuclear shadows
She can’t just escape the feeling repeating in her head
When after all the urges some kind of truth emerges
We felt the deadly surges discovering Japan, discovering Japan
The GI’s only use her, they only ram right through her
Giving an eastern promise, that they could never keep
Seeing a million miles, between their joke and smiles
She heard their hard denials
As the tears dropped sideways down her face, face
I woke up talking in the tongue of a different race, race
And as the flight touches down my watch says 8:02
But that’s midnight to you, midnight to you, midnight to you
I dreamed headlong collisions in jet lag panavisions
I shouted sayonara it didn’t mean goodbye
But lovers turn to posers show up in film exposures
Just like in travel brochures, discovering Japan, discovering Japan
Re-make/Re-model – How pop art became art pop
Tate Britain, Auditorium
Thursday 6 December 2012, 18.30 – 20.00
In the third AICA Annual Lecture, Michael Bracewell will explore the intertwined history of the art rock group Roxy Music and the ideas and attitudes emerging from British art schools and university departments during the 1960s. He will recount some of the stories unearthed through his research, linking the commercial world of pop music to the ideas of fine art. Michael Bracewell is the author of six novels and four works of non-fiction, including Re-make/Re-model 2006 and England Is Mine 1997. He writes widely on modern and contemporary British art, and is a regular contributor to Frieze magazine. His most recent book The Space Between: Collected Writings on Art 2012 is published by Ridinghouse.
The lecture will be followed by a Q&A chaired by Marco Livingstone, and a drinks reception. AICA (International Association of Art Critics UK) inaugurated this lecture series in 2010 with American art historian James Elkins on the State of Art Criticism, followed by art historian and critic Stephen Bann in 2011. This is the third annual AICA lecture at Tate Britain. In association with AICA (The International Association of Art Critics, UK). [Source]
“Elegia” is a song by the British electro/rock band, New Order. Unusually for New Order, it is an instrumental and a waltz. It can be found on their third studio album, Low-Life (1985). According to drummer Stephen Morris in an interview with Select magazine in 1993, the album version of the song was a 5-minute highlight of a recording 17 and a half minutes long. As the internet became widely available, a poor-quality mp3, allegedly of this recording, surfaced in the mid-90′s. However, it was not until the release of the compilation boxset, Retro, in 2002 that the full recording officially saw the light of day. The song was used as the conclusion to the bonus fifth disc included with early releases of the set. The mp3 that found its way onto the internet did appear to be the same as the song later released. This version was also released on the 2008 Collector’s Edition of Low-Life. Elegia is Latin for elegy. The band have stated that the song was written in memory of the late Ian Curtis, lead singer of the band’s former incarnation, Joy Division. The album version of the song was featured in the Academy Award-nominated short film More by Mark Osborne, the film Pretty In Pink, the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode “Compulsion”. It was also used in an American Masters documentary on writer Truman Capote and in “Rust” – a black-and-white music video by Nenko Genov.
