Video: Tycho – Japan

Having recently announced their new album ‘Weather’ is due July 12th via Mom + Pop Music x Ninja Tune, Tycho are sharing their new single “Japan”.

The track comes in two forms, the first features the addition of vocals from Hannah Cottrell (Saint Sinner) and the second is an instrumental piece, which features the vivid signature soundscapes present in the classic Tycho sound.

Scott Hansen of Tycho said “Similar to ‘Pink & Blue’ the instrumental versions are not just the songs with vocals muted, they are different arrangements with different instrumentation and melodies in place of the vocals. I wanted to explore the idea of approaching songs from two entirely different perspectives.”

With visuals from director Charles Bergquist, Hansen said the following about the new song “I had just returned from spending some time in Hakone, Japan with my wife’s Japanese relatives. I was thinking a lot about the kinds of electronic music instruments I had been using when I first started making music in the late ‘90s. With Japan I was trying to recapture a part of that sound and combine it with the imagery and experiences from my trip to Hakone. I sent the song to Hannah with nothing more than the title of Japan and she wrote all of the lyrics.”

Video: Mechanimal – Red Mirror

After a three-year wait, last week Greece’s “drone’n’roll” act Mechanimal (Giannis Papaioanou, Freddie Faulkenberry) returned with the new song “Easy Dead,” the A-side of their new EP, “White Flag Single”, due out June 21st. Now Athenian’s scene pioneers, Mechanimal are sharing a new clip for their new EP’s B-side “Red Mirror”.

Giannis P. – “The video for “Red Mirror” was shot and directed by John Karabelas. We all admire the way images and video can be bitcrushed and pixelated and kinetic, so they turn more to some abstract painting than encoding errors. We love this kind of glitched-out aestheticism that actually has roots in net art movement of the early aughts. It’s all about hacking, cloning and copying our own stuff, when questions about rights and authenticity really become issues.”

Freddie F. – “Red Mirror is a hymn to reconstruction, rebirth, and all that comes hand in hand with that, destruction, erasing and rebuilding. It’s about decline, but not necessarily with a negative outcome.”
