A Winged Victory For The Sullen - Atomos

A Winged Victory For The Sullen - Atomos out now! picture
A Winged Victory For The Sullen return with their acclaimed second album 'Atomos', inspired by contemporary dance and new instrumentation – out now!

Wayne McGregor, resident choreographer at the Royal Ballet, was one of these fans and chose to play the album repeatedly during practices with his core group of dancers. After noticing the group's reaction with the music, he contacted Adam and Dustin to see if they could write the score for his new oeuvre. The duo were given complete artistic freedom and they treated the score with the same care and attention as their debut album.

'It's a strange and beautiful album, one that's hard to turn away from' ★★★★ – Q 

'It’s as elegant and grandiose and soothing and enveloping as it ever was' (8/10) – Drowned In Sound

'Altered states indeed’ ★★★★ – Mojo 

'The ultimate success of the listening experience is in its ability to stir an emotional reaction’ – The Quietus

Douglas Dare announces new EP 'Caroline/If Only'

 Douglas Dare announces new EP Caroline/If Only  picture
"If I knew I were alive, I could do so much better. If I knew what I had, then I could use it more wisely. If only I’d known before then I’d be in a better place already. If only."  

London-based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare releases new EP, following on from his debut album 'Whelm'. Named after album track 'Caroline' and new track 'If I Knew I Were Alive', it also features remixes by fellow label mate Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles and Houndstooth’s own electronic producer Ross Tones aka Throwing Snow.  

"The recording has this demo quality which I really enjoy. I love how revealing a demo can be, it seems to expose the fundamental ideas the songwriter had and the basic quality of the recording is very revealing. One of my favourite records is PJ Harvey’s ‘4 Track Demos’ where the songs are so stripped back that you can appreciate the finest details." – Douglas Dare

'Caroline/If Only' will be released on a Limited Edition 10” Vinyl and Download via Erased Tapes on September 22, 2014 and can be pre ordered from here.

Kiasmos announce debut album

Kiasmos announce debut album! picture
Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen will release their unique Nordic electronic sounds in album size on October 27.

After dropping several tracks and performing at select festivals throughout the years, the duo dedicated the year 2014 to explore the area in-between Ólafur’s more acoustic, piano-based solo work and Janus’s synth-heavy electro pop, with their collaborative electronic project Kiasmos.

'Full of melancholy-frosted electronics and emotive swells of classical piano, the new single from Nordic duo Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen is a delicate, icy slowburn' – NME Track Premiere 

'Brasher, braver and more raw, ‘Burnt’ seems to exude glacial coolness and heat at the same time' – DIY

"There are lots of instances of very colourful ambient sounds, which I took great care to create for each song, using various methods, from passing analogue synths through chains of effects to chopping up random sequences of recordings and forming tiny collages."
