Further Information

Irmin Schmidt - Filmmusik Anthology Volume 6
Irmin Schmidt is a founding member of the legendary band Can. His solo work is being made available here as individual releases outside of the now sold out box set ‘Electro Violet’. These CD albums cover his beautiful and memorising soundtrack and operatic work as well as his avant garde recordings as a solo artist and as a collaborator with Kumo and Bruno Spoerri. After a classical education as pianist, conductor and composer, Irmin Schmidt - who studied under Stockhausen and Ligeti - established Can in the late 60s, combining classic new music with rock and jazz. The band’s powerful influence has never diminished and recently Irmin Schmidt was awarded a Knighthood - the Chevalier De L'Ordre Des Arts Et Des Lettres - for his contribution to arts and culture by the French Ministry Of Culture. When all Can members decided to part and explore new sounds, Irmin teamed up with Swiss jazz and electronics musician Bruno Spoerri to make his first post-Can album: ‘Toy Planet’ (1981). Over the years, he continued his work for film and released his second solo album, ‘Musk At Dusk’ (1987), followed by ‘Impossible Holidays’ (1991). The previously unreleased album, ‘Filmmusik Anthology Vol. 6’, includes music from across over 100 soundtracks and theatre compositions that Schmidt has worked on over the past three decades, with music from ‘Palermo Shooting’ (Wim Wenders, 2008), ‘Schneeland’ (Hans W Geissendörfer, 2005) as well as the critically acclaimed German TV series ‘Bloch & Tatort’ plus the TV film ‘Mord In Eberswalde’ by Stephan Wagner, for which Schmidt won the Best Film Music Award from the Deutsche Akademie Für Fernsehen in 2013.

Swans - Die Tür Ist Zu
Die Tür Ist Zu EP (a German language version of some of the material from Soundtracks that also includes unique material) will be released as a limited edition companion piece double vinyl set, on 20 July.

Jumbo's Jack Donnison says "A seminal moment in the Swans catalogue, 'Soundtracks for the Blind' marked a major shift in band's sound... With Gira and friends drawing more from the worlds of ambient and film soundtracks (hence the title), than from the noise-rock barrage they made their name with. With this, the 'Die Tür Ist Zu EP', we're getting the German language version of selected tracks from 'Soundtracks for the Blind'. Germanic stammer + Swans = joy."

On Dead Waves - On Dead Waves
You haven’t heard them like this before but you may already know the band. One is James Chapman, better known as Maps. The other is Polly Scattergood, the electrically charged artist who has released two solo albums on Mute. The seeds of Chapman and Scattergood’s creative partnership were sown in 2011, at Mute’s Short Circuit festival, at which Polly and James paired up to perform each other’s songs. On Dead Waves launched their debut track, ‘Blackbird’, at the end of 2015. Q said “… a world of smeared mascara and trailer-park heartache, there’s something wonderfully cinematic about this debut single,” while The Guardian wrote, “‘Blackbird’, their debut single, somehow nods to both shoegaze and country, with a David Lynchian creepiness to both music and lyrics.” On Dead Waves’ debut album is heavy of atmosphere, rich in melody and rippled with an air of malice and flowing female and male vocals.

Led by Michael Gira, Swans formed in 1982 and, after disbanding in 1997, returned with the critically acclaimed albums ‘My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky’ (2010), ‘The Seer’ (2012) and 2014’s ‘To Be Kind’.

Looper - Offgrid/Offline
Looper emerged from Belle & Sebastian in 1997, when Stuart David (co-founder and bass player of B&S) and his wife Karn (an artist who directed the early B&S videos) collaborated for a show at Glasgow School Of Art. After a break from music for a few years, Karn went back to art school to study animation and Stuart turned his focus to studying literature and writing novels, a move to the remote countryside, post-study, prompted the creation of a new body of work. ‘Offgrid:Offline’, the band’s fifth studio album, was the result - these new songs and stories, inspired by the return to peace and quiet and influenced by indie-folk music saw Looper conscious of the very different styles of previous albums. They set out to bring together elements of each into this new work.

LUH - Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing
LUH (which stands for Lost Under Heaven) are Ellery Roberts and Ebony Hoorn. Over the past two years, they have been releasing music, art, photography, film and manifestos into the world, including 2014’s ‘Unites’ video and the expansive ‘Lost Under Heaven’ music and artwork package at the end of last year. Ellery’s name might be familiar as the frontman of WU LYF, whose raw and primal voice helped create a sound that shaped a new model for the untamed fury of youth. Ebony is an audio-visual artist based in Amsterdam, where the pair now live. ‘Spiritual Songs For Lovers To Sing’ is the pair’s debut album and was produced by The Haxan Cloak (known for his own genre-bending experimental compositions and work on Björk’s ‘Vulnicura’ album) in 2015 on the remote island of Osea.

Ben Frost - The Centre Cannot Hold
The Centre Cannot Hold was recorded over ten days by Steve Albini in Chicago. The music exists not in space, but in a space; it is a document of an event, of a room, and of the composer within it. It is music that is not fully controlled and appears to be anxiously, often violently competing against its creator.   An exercise in limitation and chromatic saturation, The Centre Cannot Hold is an attempt at transcribing a spectrum of glowing ultramarine into sound.   Ben Frost released Threshold Of Faith, a seven-track 12” and digital EP, last month. Pitchfork describe the track title track as “moving from heroic vistas into a garbled, snow-blinded melee. Distant choral pads, a glistening upper-register sheen, submerged piano, and groaning harmonies all stack up into a geologic crescendo that extends into infinity.” while The 405 describe the EP as “scorching and beautiful”.

Liars - TFCF
Liars have, as a matter of course, sounded radically different with each album, pursuing new concepts and occupying diverse mindsets. On this, Liars’ eighth studio album, the bustling backdrops of Los Angeles, Berlin and New York have been replaced with a presence far more intimate and autobiographical as Liars once again boldly step out of their comfort zone into vastly new musical territory. Following an amicable parting of ways with Aaron Hemphill, Liars is now Angus Andrew, who decamped to his native Australia, specifically to a remote part of the Australian bush, to create an album unlike any Liars had attempted before. The album’s reinvention of the Liars paradigm – blurring the lines between electronic and acoustic, between the experimental impulse and the addictive pop sensibility – is evidence that Angus’ creative energies remain as healthy as ever, even given the upheaval within the group.

Band members and Jarboe and Bill Rieflin etc came and went, and somehow we crafted this thing into what it became.”

A Certain Ratio - I'd Like To See You Again
A Certain Ratio embraced the ethic and culture of the late Seventies post punk explosion but sounded like nothing else around them and refused to fit in. Formed in 1978, the band had various members throughout their career and a core line up of Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson. Hailed universally as pioneers of what became known as ‘punk funk’ thanks to the success of ‘Shack Up’ on both sides of the Atlantic, their sound is not easily pigeonholed and their influence can never be understated. The band introduced the avant garde elements of funk, jazz, electronics, tape loops and technology to the pop song, wrapping it in a post punk aesthetic, adding great clothes and the coolest haircuts.

Hailed universally as pioneers of what became known as ‘punk funk’ thanks to the success of ‘Shack Up’ on both sides of the Atlantic, their sound is not easily pigeonholed and their influence can never be understated. The band introduced the avant garde elements of funk, jazz, electronics, tape loops and technology to the pop song, wrapping it in a post punk aesthetic, adding great clothes and the coolest haircuts.

Liars - 1/1 (Original Soundtrack)
‘1/1’ is the soundtrack to Jeremy Phillips’ directorial debut. The result is a fractured, emotional response to characters within the film. Without using visual cues that might allow the music to simply mirror emotion, Liars have delved deeper into the reality of some of the more complicated themes of ‘1/1’.

Ben Frost - All That You Love Will Be Enviscerated
In collaborating with Albini, Frost chooses a new immediacy and raw directness. As an artist whose command of sound design lies at the heart of his practice, by placing himself primarily in the role of live performer and handing the studio recording process over to Albini, Frost continues pursuit of Theseus’ paradox; the question of whether a ship restored by replacing every single part remains the same ship.

Chris Carter - Chemistry Lesson Volume 1
Chemistry Lessons Volume One’ reinforces Carter’s significant role in the development of electronic music - a journey that for Carter started ahead of his work with Throbbing Gristle (alongside Cosey, Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge) and continued through Chris & Cosey, Carter Tutti and Carter Tutti Void as well as his own solo and collaborative releases under his own name. Despite having been worked on over an extended period between various artistic projects in a variety of different moods, situations and circumstances, ‘CCCL Volume 1’s experiments never feel like Carter noodling around aimlessly in his studio-laboratory. Instead there is an inner coherence and a distinctively Chris Carter approach to sound and execution. It’s an endeavour that places ‘CCCL Volume 1’ comfortably alongside everything else that this sonic scientist has been involved in and yet one that showcases a restless, questing creative spirit forever scouting for new ideas.

Chris Liebing - Burn Slow
‘Burn Slow’ is a minimalist electronic epic and the start of a new chapter for one of techno’s leading authorities. It might not be what you expect for a DJ synonymous with fast, hard and heavy techno but, according to Chris Liebing, he’s always been something of a slow starter: “I’ve wanted to do something like ‘Burn Slow’ all my life,” he says. While retaining the framework of the techno beats that Chris Liebing has dedicated his life to for the past 25 years, here he also seeks out new harmonic territories, taking aim at the heart rather than the feet, in order to tackle some deep themes.
