NE154: Pye Corner Audio x Not Waving

The split Pye Corner Audio/Not Waving spy themed 12 is due at the end of this month, they have put together an excellent mixtape for Self Titled magazine highlighting some wonderful music. Listen below

A Winged Victory for the Sullen- Atmos VI

A Winged Victory for the Sullen return in October with their new record 'ATMOS'. The album came about in unusual fashion:

Wayne McGregor, founder of Random Dance Company and resident choreographer at the Royal Ballet, 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. They recorded more than sixty minutes of music over a four-month period during the summer of 2013 across studios in Brussels, Berlin and Reykjavik, with the help of their long time collaborative sound engineer Francesco Donadello. During the recording process they realised, that this would become their official second studio album. McGregor provided them with the inspiration to expand their sound palette into more electronic territory, whilst keeping their signature chamber sound, resulting in a very unique record.

“As a wise man once said, one who procrastinates their own choosing will inevitably have their choice served to them by circumstance. We had virtually no time for second guessing ourselves. That being said, we tried to balance the discordance between being creative, and fulfilling our duties for a commissioned soundtrack with a very strict deadline, and all the while staying true to our collective melancholy.‘’ – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie
