[ 28.02.2007 ] - New single and album from Motor

«Unhuman»
«Unhuman»

Mr. No and Bryan Black known as eletro project Motor are ready to new adventure. Their second album «Unhuman» (cat. no.: NOMU177CD) will be released on March 19th, 2007 via Mute. New material has taken this mutant disco hybrid and coerced it into a sleeker and more mature sound that smoothes the edges yet retains the attitude of their previous clubland destroying singles.

Tracklisting:

[01] Bleep #1
[02] Unhuman
[03] Drug Punk
[04] 20 Volts Of Steel
[05] Night Drive
[06] Tête En Plastique
[07] Flashback
[08] Re-format
[09] AC 775
[10] Sikk

«Bleep#1»
«Bleep#1»

The first example of this album is new single «Bleep#1», which as its name suggests builds around a incessant computer bleep groove and rolling bass synth, creating a dynamic and pulsating bionic bontempi rhythm. Already road tested to great effect «Bleep#1» has fast become a live show fave. Next up, one of the hottest producers around, Whitey strips down the beat to a more organic live sound with his unique production stamp. «Bleep#1» (cat. no.: 12NOMU174) will released as 12" single on March 12th, 2007 via Mute.

Tracklisting:

[01] Bleep#1 (Extended Version)
[02] Bleep#1 (Whitey 'Clean Machines Mix')

[ 28.02.2007 ] - Hot news from Marc Almond

Marc Almond
Marc Almond

As we were informed, Marc Almond has signed a new 3 album recording deal with Sanctuary Records under which his new studio album, «Stardom Road», will be the first release in late May 2007.

This album is a collection of cover songs (although there is one original song, too) that embody all the diverse influences that have shaped much of Marcs musical life. The songs represent many of the styles which Marc has been associated with over the years; from the «Torch Song» ballad, Chanson, the crooners of the 1950's, the 1960's grand orchestral sounds, the «over the top» pop glam of the 70's and the electro style of the 80's that made him famous. The album is, above all else, a musical journey through Marc Almond's life as an artist, a personal glimpse into his inspirations, aspirations and conclusions. It is perhaps his most important album being the first release since his near fatal motorcycle crash in 2004, from which he has had to make a public and private recovery. The crash was, as such ordeals are for all victims of traffic accidents, life changing. For Marc, recovery has proven to be frustrating and difficult, in addition his confidence as a performer and ability as a singer severely impaired by his injuries. Recording this album has formed part of the recovery process and thereby represents a turning point as an artist.

The album has been compiled with the help of Tris Penna, who in turn produced many of the tracks with the acclaimed producer Marius de Vries and arranger Mike Smith. It features guest spots from Antony Hegarty (Antony and the Johnsons), Jools Holland, who Marc often tours with and Sarah Cracknell (St Etienne).

On April 7th, 2007 Marc Almond will perform in Moscow at «Apelsin» club. More details - later!
