Man Power remix of TEEN’s “Love Yes”

April 12, 2016 12:30 pm

Producer Man Power (aka Geoff Kirkwood) gave TEEN’s track “Love Yes” the remix treatment. Head over to SPIN to stream it now. “It’s a remix that retains but re-contextualizes the sensual confusion of the original, and with its squelching synths and clanging cowbell, makes it readier for dance-floor deployment than even the most shimmying Love Yes highlights.”


“Now Is The Time Of Emotion” music video

April 12, 2016 11:51 am

Prince Rama just shared their latest music video for “Now Is The Time Of Emotion,” taken from their new album Xtreme Now. Check it out via The Fader. Video directed by Matt Hoffman and Taraka Larson.

“We basically wanted to make a video where we could do all the taboo things we’ve always wanted to do in a museum but are never allowed to. So we broke into a modern art museum and incited gangs of skateboarders, motorcyclists, fencers, small children, and crazed-townspeople to ransack its contents, destroying the artwork in bizarrely surreal manners…” — Taraka Larson

The Lines release “hull down” on Acute Records

April 6, 2016 10:59 am

From within the Carpark family, Acute Records is elated to bring you new music from U.K. post-punk and proto-new wave pioneers, The Lines, in the form of hull down, a “lost” album of sorts. Head over to SoundCloud and stream the first single “Single Engine Duster.”

After the release of their cult-classic singles, EPs, and LPs in the late 1970s and early ’80s (compiled on Acute’s Memory Span and Flood Bank releases), The Lines continued to record, first in a series of home experiments and then in William Orbit’s Guerilla Studios. Unfortunately, these recordings were never finalized as band members began to drift apart. Over 20 years after these sessions, the original cassette tapes were dusted off and different incarnations have been blended or cross-faded to create a version of what might’ve been a third LP, an alternate ’80s where The Lines continued developing and exploring.

This will be Acute Records’ final release. Pre-order it today via the Carpark shop or iTunes. Thank you for listening!
