Since January, Tycho have been on an expansive world tour, traveling throughout Australia, Singapore, and Europe. The band returns stateside in April, appearing at both weekends of Coachella. Then they’ll cover much of the midwest, east coast (including new Brooklyn venue, Brooklyn Steel), and Canada. Come June, they play Primavera Sound festivals (Barcelona, Spain & Porto, Portugal), Sweden’s Way Out West festival, and more.
Com Truise returns June 16th.
How much emotion can one man convey through his machines? Iteration, the forthcoming full-length of technicolour synth-wave from producer Seth Haley aka Com Truise, challenges that notion and concludes a sprawling saga which began six years ago on his debut, Galactic Melt. True to its name, the album is built on Com Truise hallmarks: neon-streaked melodies, big drums, robotic grooves, bleary nostalgia. It’s also the most elegant and streamlined that Haley’s music has ever sounded.
Vice’s Creators Project spoke with director Michael Reisinger the hypnotic new visual treatment for Lusine’s “Just A Cloud,” built with 2,300 LED lights.
“In a lot of fictional examples, a character awakens from a simulated world and into the real world, where everything is the same. Color, light, matter—all behave the same as in the simulation. I wanted to put our character through a similar awakening, but into a reality that’s overwhelming and incomprehensible.”
On Friday, March 31st, Geotic aka Will Wiesenfeld will be djing live at NYC’s Turntable Lab from 6pm to 7pm, in celebration of the release of his latest album Absyma. Admission is free, and vinyl copies of Absyma will be available for purchase.
Earlier that day, at noon, he’ll dj at The Lot Radio in Williamsburg. And much later, at midnight, the celebration continues down the street with Geotic’s album release party at Baby’s All Right. Will’s show as Baths the night before has long been sold out, so here’s another chance to catch him in NY.
On Sunday, March 26th, Ghostly is participating two-fold during MoMA PS1 & Other Music’s Come Together festival. Find us upstairs at the label market, selling Ghostly LPs and cassettes plus select items from The Ghostly Store, and from Ghostly founder Sam Valenti’s personal record collection.
We will also debut our collaboration with Snarkitecture, The Last Crates, in a gallery space dedicated to record listening. We’ve invited artists, label reps, and friends to select an album to be played in its entirety. Together let’s listen and ponder: what would you put in your last crate?
On the heels of our inaugural event, we’ve announced the next iteration of our Spiritual America event series. Taking place next month on April 8th, we’ll return to Detroit’s El Club with a night featuring performances by Inga Copeland and Lusine as well as DJ sets by Joey Anderson, Osborne, and our resident DJ, Shigeto. See you there.
Com Truise and Clark will be touring in North America throughout May and June. Plenty of our other artists are also heading out on lengthy tours: Mary Lattimore will be opening up for Waxahatchee and Real Estate, and Tycho is in the midst of finishing his European tour before coming back to the states.
No Future was released last week along with an accompanying interactive site inspired by the themes, sounds, and images from the album. The album is still available as both a regular double LP as well as a limited edition version which features transparent blue vinyl and an embossed jacket.
Spiritual America is electronic music. The first installment welcomes a cross-section of the Ghostly and Spectral family with Hieroglyphic Being, Telefon Tel Aviv, JTC, and resident DJ, Shigeto, taking place February 25th at Detroit’s El Club.
