release: 'In The Passing Light Of Day' by Pain of Salvation

The band's first new album in six years enters sales charts!

 

Swedish progressive rock/metal innovators Pain of Salvation have released their long-awaited new studio album 'In The Passing Light Of Day' with longtime label partners InsideOutMusic.

 

The much anticipated album is now entering the national sales charts in various countries, reaching the highest entries in the band's history.


Working together with acclaimed producer Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Strapping Young Lad, etc.) at Dugout Studio in Sweden, the band have crafted an album that sees them returning to their much praised heavier sound, featuring the syncopated rhythms, glorious melodies, and intensely personal themes that Pain of Salvation fans have long loved about the band.

 

'In the Passing Day Of Light' was released January 13th via InsideOutMusic.

Jaki Liebezeit unexpectedly passed

It is with great sadness that we learned of Jaki Liebezeit’s far too early death.

 

We consider ourselves honoured and fortunate for the opportunity to act as publishers for his Secret Rhythms project with Burnt Friedman.

 

Wherever he now dwells, we have no doubt it will be with perfect time.

upcoming debut album by a glow

'Of The Undergrowth' is scheduled for 2017.

 

a glow are singer/songwriter Jette von Roth and DJ/producer Mijk van Dijk from Berlin. Together they produce crackling campfire electronica. 'Perfect' is the first single release from their upcoming debut album 'Of The Undergrowth'.


After two instrumental solo albums on her own label roter punkt, Jette von Roth finally returns with vocal compostions, conceived and produced with Mijk van Dijk.


'Perfect' is a fine example of their style: warm and fragile, dreamy and brittle, experimental and familiar. To serve the dancefloor, Jette and Mijk conceived a super-slow club mix that shines a different light on the original.


The package is completed by epic Remix by Berlin 1990ies trance legend Cosmic Baby. Harald Blüchel's meditative sound scape and Mijk van Dijk’s own club version have already been road-tested and approved by cheering crowds all over the world.


'Monsters' will be the the second single from 'Of The Undergrowth', scheduled for 2017.

new signing: Jessica Baran-Surel

Jessica Baran-Surel breathes new life into a long-forgotten music of the Middle Ages, the Celts and the early Dutch and Italians (Ars Nova, Trecento).


Jesscica breathes new life into a long-forgotten music. Her playing summons up the vastness of the mystical world: the forests, the meadows, the cities and the sea. It is impossible to resist fascination with this graceful, elfish vision that fervently takes hold of the room.


Music has been a part of Jessica's life since she was in the cradle. Her first music lessons were with her mother and were followed by a typical music education: Instrumental studies at the Hochschule für Musik in Weimar and at the Hochschule für Künste in Bremen, a scholarship tu study with Gabriel Garido and Francis Biggi at the Conservatory in Genf, and numerous concerts with various artists and ensembles (Carlos Núnez, Lucidarium among others).


In addition to her traditional music education, she is also largely influenced by popular and folk music. As a result of her Breton roots, deeply seated in the celtic tradition, her active work as a flautist, singer and keyboard player in various bands and projects, and her long-standing work with music producer Thomas "toma" Barth, she has increasingly blurred the boundaries between different styles and genres and between classical and popular music. She has developed an effortlessness in her handling of musical language, which she shapes into something unique.

new signing: Wolfgang Tillmans

Freibank just signed fine art photographer and composer Wolfgang Tillmans!

 

Tillmans, born 1968, is best known as a fine art photographer. In 2000 he became the first photographer to win the Turner Prize, and his work hangs in the Metropolitan Museum Of Art, the Tate, MoMA and the Centre Pompidou, among others. His subject matter, themes and associations have long interwoven with club culture - he's had three sets of work installed in Panorama Bar and also provided the artwork for last year's Ostgut Ton Zehn compilation.


He's also a dedicated music fan. Not only have musicians long been his subjects for works shown in exhibitions, he also still regularly shoots artist portraits for music publications such as German Rolling Stone and Spex. His Berlin gallery Between Bridges also has exhibitions around records, featuring playback on a high-end soundsystem. If you live in Berlin, you'll see him regularly at clubs and can occasionally catch him DJing.


'Device Control' is Tillmans' second release as a musician. His first album '2016 / 1986' came out on Fragile less than three months ago. The EP's title track appeared on Frank Ocean's 'Endless' visual album - Ocean started 'Endless' with a sample from 'Device Control' and ended it by including the entire track.


Wolfgang Tillmans' era-defining career will be the subject of a major retrospective at London's Tate Modern in February 2017.

Listen to Lena Willikens' fiery reinterpretation of TAL's first release from Ogoya Nengo and The Dodo Women’s Group!

 

Lena Willikens has undeniably been one of 2016's most prolific artists.
