Grammy-winning Norwegian art-noise-rock outfit Årabrot are returning on 7th September with their new album Who Do You Love. Over the years the band has collaborated with producers like Billy Anderson and Steve Albini, and musicians such as Ted Parsons (Killing Joke/Swans), Sunn O))))’s Stephen O’Malley, and Kvelertak’s Erlend Hjelvik. Most recently they appeared at this year’s Roadburn Festival which was swiftly followed by a support slot in Norway with Marilyn Manson. You can listen to the latest track from the record, ‘Maldoror’s Love’, here, now:

The London based alternative/indie rock trio Desert Mountain Tribe will release their second album on 1st June. Om Parvat Mystery is co-produced by the band with James Aparicio and was recorded in London and the Faroe Islands. Najma Akhtar, the well known British singer of Indian ancestry who has previously collaborated with the likes of Page & Plant and Jah Wobble as well as making several acclaimed solo albums in her own right, features on two songs.

Describing the new album, DMT say : “We’re very proud of this new record. It definitely shows a progression from our personal tastes in music and style of playing. We didn’t consciously make an effort to sound different from the first album but it felt like a natural development to a more experimental sound.”

Ahead of the album, and following lead single ‘Wide Eyes’, they’re streaming ‘High Drive’. Get your lugs round it here:

Prepare your mind, body, and the deepest recesses of your soul: the black gates that Dark Buddha Rising opened a decade ago with I, open further in 2018, as the band announce the II EP, due for release via Neurot Recordings on 23rd March 2018. II continues to traverse spiritual planes, opening up a vortex with their sonic, and following calls from beyond.

For 10 years, the Finnish band has convened in the now-famous Wastement studio space; set below their home city of Tampere, Finland; to roil in the sounds of the underground, to meet dark spirits, to breathe in time with rhythmic pulses sent from the skies, the stars and the very dirt around them.

On the surface, the band emits the blackest of psychedelia. Deep down, their sounds are forged in the blue fires of the ancients, exhalations of gods, goddesses and demons alike. Of this new offering, V. Ajomo says: "To drain our sonic temple, we wanted to record the new material which was made for 2016 shows in order to proceed towards the unknown with open minds and hearts. After the cleansing, we initiated our chamber with ambient meditation and opened the portals of inspiration for our future work."

II sees Dark Buddha Rising return to its purest incarnation: a three-piece rhythm section; J.Rämänen on drums, P. Rämänen on bass and V. Ajomo on guitar; and with J. Saarivuori on synths and M. Neuman on main vocals. "We have done a full cycle of the orbit and now is the time for gravitational slingshot towards the new dimensions in sound, deliverance and vision"; Ajomo adds.

The EP’s A-side was recorded and mixed in Space Junk Studio by K.Nyyssönen and B-side was recorded in Wastement by DBR and mixed by S. Tamminen.

It has been two years since Dark Buddha Rising found a home amongst kindred spirits at Neurot Recordings, who released Inversum; the first album recorded in the band’s Wastement home: "the asylum of eternal feedback".

Cinema Cinema, the full-throttle, experimentally-inclined rock duo from Brooklyn,  are getting ready to undertake their latest European tour (dates below). They are currently preparing to maser their fourth full length album, their second with Martin Bisi producing at BC Studios in Brooklyn, NY. In finishing the work they’ve overcome obstacles that included the studio – and much of their equipment being stolen from the recording studio.

Cinema Cinema first met Martin Bisi in 2012 in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Bisi, whose BC Studios was located just a few blocks away from the band’s rehearsal studio, was walking through the streets overwhelmed by the destruction he encountered when he came upon guitarist Ev Gold and drummer Paul Claro clearing ruined instruments and amps from the remains of their practice space. The three immediately struck up a friendship and kept in touch thereafter.

Soon after that incident, the band experienced an amazing outpouring of sympathy and support from their friends, fans and fellow musicians who donated money and equipment, bought records and merchandise. This allowed Cinema Cinema to refurbish and replace equipment, and – with a bit of borrowed gear – and start playing live again within two weeks. In 2013, the duo would wind up performing some 75 shows, including  a handful of dates opening for Black Flag, as well as their first European tour, opening for Bisi.  Martin had kept in contact and they shared bills in Brooklyn shows which led to the European touring and then producing A Night At The Fights.
