Following his third album Blood Moon, released to much acclaim earlier this year, Heavenly’s M.Craft completes the line-up for the final [PIAS] Nites event of the year. Having decamped to a log cabin on the edge of the Mojave desert, Craft discovered that isolation loves a soundtrack and Blood Moon is a score for seclusion. Inspired by witnessing the titular lunar event twice during his stint as a desert resident, the album propagated in a nearby Los Angeles studio, unstructured, experimental piano pieces evolved into the album once back in his desert setting. Occasionally echoing the ghost forms of Talk Talk’s peerless Laughing Stock and the hymnal beauty of Sufjan Steven’s Seven Swans, the music is mainly Craft’s own unique meditation.
Newly signed to Bella Union, this experimental pop band from New York unveil their debut album Young Narrator In The Breakers in November. The quintet came together whilst at Yale, studying music with its various members having worked closely with a variety of musical heavyweights such as john Zorn, Here We Go Magic. Lucius, Dave Longstreth and San Fermin whilst coming together as Pavo Pavo, guitar stabs, washed out harmonies, and rumbling synthesisers come and go like the tides of the ocean, the music moves with symphonic elegance that has been hailed as “weightless pop music that sounds like it was beamed down from a glimmering utopian future”.
The new solo project from Balthazar’s Jinte Duprez under the nom de plume J.Bernhardt and thus described in a recent interview ; "The whole project is more personal in a way that reflects my philosophy about music. I really love the primitive groove thing about being a human being. You’re very much related with beats and grooves. The backings and everything on the album it’s all very gospel soul related. It’s very monotone.“ J. Bernhardt’s debut album will be released through Play It Again Sam next year.
