GEMS shares “Free Fall”

January 12, 2017 4:31 pm

“Free Fall” is the second single GEMS is releasing as part of their series “Every Full Moon”. The full moon represents a time of culmination and fulfillment, of coming full circle, and a symbolic illumination in our inner lives that is mirrored in the night sky. GEMS will be releasing a new song with every full moon.

Sometimes life pulls the rug out from under your feet and you have this sense of groundlessness, like everything is suspended in free fall. Really, we are all in free fall, all the time, but it is the moments of cataclysmic change that wake you up to the fact that there are no sure things in life. Change is the only constant. “Free Fall” is about embracing that change and hurdling forward into the unknown without regretting the past.

“Internal World” music video

January 10, 2017 11:22 am

Receive a lesson in etiquette and manners via Cloud Nothings’ new video for “Internal World.” Entertainment Weekly premiered the video along with an exclusive interview with Dylan Baldi.

“‘Generally with videos, what we try to do is just find someone that we think is gonna make something weird,’ Baldi says. ‘We just want to find someone who’s going to do something that we think will be cool and strange and might not even make sense.’ That led the band to Jonny Look, a filmmaker they knew of from their Cleveland days who has made clips for artists including Cass McCombs and Tim Darcy.

The result is a disorienting, lo-fi instructional video about ‘etiquette and manners education’ sponsored by the ‘Department of Human Being Assimilation’ and the ‘Reptile Assimilation Board.’ Baldi pauses when considering how it relates to the song itself. ‘Someone who’s a lizard might think differently than someone who’s not, I guess,’ he decides, with a laugh.”

“Internal World” is the second single from Cloud Nothings’ forthcoming album, Life Without Sound, out January 27th. Pre-orders are available here:
Carpark Records (US)

Xtreme Now Special Edition packages

January 5, 2017 4:58 pm

We’re very excited to offer a very special and limited edition Prince Rama package. The bundle includes Takara Larson’s Xtreme Now manifesto book and Prince Rama’s newest LP, Xtreme Now. Only 10 copies are available so snag one while you can!

Taraka Larson’s Xtreme Now manifesto:
XTREME NOW is the latest bold new manifesto by Taraka Larson, pushing Prince Rama’s self-proclaimed philosophy of the Now Age further and exploring life as a continuous daring act of performance art. Premiering at the NY Art Book fair, it was written as a metaphysical treatise to accompany Prince Rama’s latest album, examining the phenomenon of extreme sports through the macro lens of history as well as prophesying a future of “speed art” that fuses extreme sports, time travel and the sublime. Part critical analysis, part science fiction, and part metaphysics, Xtreme Now outlines a future where energy drinks sponsor art museums and beauty is rated by speed, all the while seducing the attention back to a dizzying state of eternal presence— “A Now Age Book of the Dead”.
