“Your Life, Your Call”, from upcoming self-titled Junip album, out this Spring on City Slang in Europe and Mute Records in North America.
She’s over you
Boy you know it’s true
But you can’t stay here
You had it coming for years
Pull yourself together
And draw the line
Pull yourself together
Can’t stand to see you crying
It’s your life, your call
Stand up or enjoy your fall
It’s over now
You’ve been taking your time
But you can’t stay here
Boy dry up your tears
No point in looking back
Over your shoulder
Leave your worries behind
For a while
You’ll forget everything
As you get older
NON aka Boyd Rice covered the song for the Short Circuit edition of the Mute compilation Vorwärts released in 2011.
Cyclopean is a collaboration from Burnt Friedman, Jono Podmore and Can founding members Jaki Liebezeit, and Irmin Schmidt.
The four track EP will be available on 12″ Vinyl & Download on 11 Feb 2013.
Available to order from these stores:
After the release of The Lost Tapes, Can’s legacy has never felt more apparent than now, and Cyclopean brings together two giants from this legendary band, Jaki Liebezeit and Irmin Schmidt alongside long time collaborators Jono Podmore (Kumo / Metamono) and musician and producer Burnt Friedman.
The title provides a metaphor for the music: Cyclopean forms are beautiful, massive and intriguing structures that interlock, intersect and connect seemingly contradictory components. Heavy, yet light, powerful, subtle, intriguing and playful. There’s also a flavour of the ancient in this music – an artefact from a sophisticated pre-culture perhaps. Extraordinary instrumentation – rubber band guitar, theremin, prepared piano – is unified through the monumental and unique drum patterns, as the characters of the four players are at once individually unmistakably and irrevocably intertwined.
The four members of Cyclopean have worked together previously: Friedman and Liebezeit’s Secret Rhythms IV was released in 2011 on Friedman´s label Nonplace and is the most recent of their releases together which began in 2002; Podmore and Schmidt’s collaborations have included two albums released as Schmidt & Kumo as well as more recent work on The Lost Tapes and Podmore has also worked with Liebezeit in the past.
Cyclopean is the first time that Friedman, Liebezeit, Podmore and Schmidt have worked together.
Following the unfortunately named but captivating “Disco Damaged Kid,” posted to YouTube in November, “Wanderlust” is the first proper single from Polly Scattergood’s sophomore album, Arrows, out in June via Mute. The song starts with something like the sound of a UFO landing, then launches into a full-on electro ballad, a fittingly tough-sounding techno-vehicle to carry Polly Scattergood’s wispy phantom of a voice. The instrumentation is more conventionally pop than her 2009 debut, and it suits her well. The “Wanderlust” single will feature two exciting remixes, by Charli XCX and How to Dress Well. [Source]

Compulsion is a cover version of a Joe Crow (from The Nightingales) song. Counterfeit e.p. is the first solo recording by Martin L. Gore, the primary songwriter for the band Depeche Mode. Released in 1989, Counterfeit is a six-song E.P. of cover songs, hence the name, implying that the songs were not written by Gore. Counterfeit was recorded during a band hiatus after recording and touring for the album Music for the Masses; bandmate Alan Wilder also recorded and released Hydrology under the pseudonym Recoil during this period. Even though the release is strictly an EP, Mute issued it an album catalogue number (STUMM67) upon release. In France and Germany a promo single for “In a Manner of Speaking” was released.
