EOB: “BRASIL

RADIOHEAD’S ED O’BRIEN RELEASES NEAR-NINE-MINUTE SONG & SHORT FILM UNDER EOB MONIKER

EOB DEBUT ALBUM TO FOLLOW IN EARLY 2020 ON CAPITOL RECORDS

Limited Edition “Brasil” 12-inch Available for Pre-Order 

www.EOBmusic.com

Following the non-LP teaser “Santa Teresa”—hailed as “beautifully ambient” by NPR—Ed O’Brien of Radiohead has unveiled the first impression of his debut album under the moniker of EOB.

Written by O’Brien, “Brasil” is a near 9-minute epic that begins life as a plaintive ballad built on the bare bones of O’Brien’s voice and acoustic guitar before blooming into a grandiose motorik rave-up anchored by the rock solid drumming of Omar Hakim and a hypnotic bassline from O’Brien’s Radiohead bandmate Colin Greenwood. Produced by Flood (who also contributes System 700 synth) and mixed by Alan Moulder, the dimensions of “Brasil” are further expanded by engineer Adam “Cecil” Bartlett’s programming, David Okumu’s guitar playing, and recording engineer Richie Kennedy’s sampler programming.

Director Andrew Donoho’s take on “Brasil” translates the song’s otherworldly feel into a global narrative exploration of the human condition. “‘Brasil’ was one of those tracks just dripping with magic from the very beginning,” Donoho recalls. “Everything started clicking very quickly. Empathy, togetherness, wonder, spirituality, and exploration resonated from the song and the references, and I wanted to write a large scope, otherworldly concept weighted in humanity. Ed and I both shared a love of space and the abstract concepts surrounding time, so I started building a narrative around transcending the physical barriers of our bodies and the temporal barriers of linear experience.” 

In O’Brien’s words, “Brasil is a state of mind, not a place or time,” making the song a natural soundscape for a re-imagination of human experience balancing the terror of the elimination of the individual with the beauty of a universal oneness. “H.P. Lovecraft, Kubrick, and Junji Ito have created some of my favorite sci-fi narratives,” he says. “But I’ve always wanted to reinterpret their horrific premises into a more poetic and optimistic notion. What if an alien or higher being were to come to earth to help us achieve a greater existence, and not to destroy us? What would it look like if everyone on earth shared thoughts, experiences, and actions? The theory that humans, as a species, actually represent one large, singular organism has always fascinated me, and I wanted to explore that concept visually through a variety of different character perspectives, mediums, and impressionistic visual effects. All these layers and ideas culminated into our narrative for ‘Brasil.’”

The early 2020 release date of the first EOB album will be revealed shortly, as will the album’s title. The recording of the album began in the fall of 2017 and concluded in early 2019. In addition to the aforementioned production and mixing by Flood and Moulder and contributions from Omar Hakim, Colin Greenwood, Adam “Cecil” Bartlett, David Okumu and Richie Kennedy, EOB’s debut album features Laura Marling, Adrian Utley, Nathan East and Glenn Kotche.

LINDEMANN

F & M
SECOND ALBUM FROM TILL LINDEMANN + PETER TÄGTGREN OUT NOW

The German-Swedish power duo LINDEMANN—Till Lindemann (Rammstein frontman) and Peter Tägtgren (mastermind behind legendary metal bands Pain and Hypocrisy)—have unleashed FRAU & MANN (Lindemann/Caroline), the second LINDEMANN album today, the 22nd of November. In this renewed collaboration, the duo takes some unfamiliar and sometimes unexpected paths.

“We have no rules,” says Lindemann. “We can write soft songs or very hard ones. It’s about the emotions. We also want to create something new, something that we haven’t done before, whether it’s with Lindemann or our other bands.” Tägtgren adds: “We don’t know what the result is going to be, we’re just going crazy. If it makes us happy, then it’s done.”

The first LINDEMANN album, Skills In Pills, featured lyrics sung entirely in English. On this second opus the rules have changed: German lyrics sung by Till Lindemann’s unmistakable voice are set in an intense and unique musical framework. The music, once again, comes from Swedish multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren – an institution within the international Metal scene as the longstanding leader of Hypocrisy and Pain. Both of the artists sound even more free, schizophrenic, evil and sublime in 2019, which is just as it should be…

The starting point of these new LINDEMANN songs was a collaboration between Till Lindemann and the Hamburg Thalia Theater in the context of a modern adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Hänsel & Gretel”, which addresses topics such as fear, hope, poverty, abundance, cannibalism and death. Five songs from this critically acclaimed play were supplemented with six brand new masterpieces to form the impressive new studio work from LINDEMANN—an 11-song album that has been preceded by a wealth of sounds and visuals including “Steh Auf” and its “epic music video” (PEOPLE magazine) featuring a guest starring turn from Peter Stormare of FARGO fame, “Ich Weiß Es Nicht” and its mind-boggling AI-fueled clip, and “Knebel”  whose accompanying clip was deemed so unsettling that it was streamed only once in its uncensored form. 

Still to come is a timed release of a 7-minute video accompanying “Frau & Mann” the single, which was filmed in St. Petersburg, Russia and is sure to delight fans across the globe with both its clever narrative and star-studded cast.  

LINDEMANN will support the release of FRAU & MANN with a 12-date European tour taking place in February 2020. As for how the new material will be received in the current recorded and live music markets… The answer from both is simple and immediate: “We do not care.”

Described by Rolling Stone as “peak Yorke, and scary good,” “Suspirium” was the first track to be revealed from Thom Yorke’s Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film), released October 26, 2018 on XL Recordings. The song was written and arranged by Thom Yorke, recorded and produced by Thom and Sam Petts-Davies, and featured the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, and Pasha Mansurov on solo flute.


VAMPIRE WEEKEND

NOMINATED FOR THREE GRAMMY AWARDS:
ALBUM OF THE YEAR
BEST ALTERNATIVE MUSIC ALBUM 
BEST ROCK SONG

Vampire Weekend has been nominated for three GRAMMY Awards including Album of the Year. The band will be also be competing for Best Alternative Music Album (for its acclaimed fourth album Father of the Bride) and Best Rock Song (Ezra Koenig for “Harmony Hall”) when the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards take place January 26, 2020.

Father of the Bride was released May 3rd on Columbia Records, quickly becoming the third Vampire Weekend album in a row to reach #1 on the Billboard 200. Father of the Bride’s first week sales of 138,000 marked the highest single week sales of the Grammy-winning band’s career, including 20,000 vinyl copies, putting the LP at #1 on the vinyl chart by a large margin—not to mention #1 debuts on the Album Sales and Internet Sales charts.

Critical acclaim for Father of the Bride has been unanimously enthusiastic, including:

“A veritable feast of music” —Billboard

“One of the most ~important~ bands of the 21st century… With Father of the Bride, their fourth album, the group has expanded itself and the conception of what a band can be.” —GQ

“The band’s long-awaited fourth album also just became the frontrunner for best album of 2019” —New York (Vulture)

“Sonically eclectic and lyrically profound… the indie-rock band’s most affecting material to date.” —People

“A sheer delight in craft and sound.” —Rolling Stone

“Vampire Weekend returns as the best indie band of their generation… the album proves that they’re still better than most, if not all, of the other artists of that era… More important, the band has a genius-level songwriter in (Ezra) Koenig” —USA Today

“An almost universally radiant offering… an album that could soundtrack an afternoon picnic or be used as fodder for a doctorate thesis on songwriting. It’s a beautifully realized cipher in an age of unsatisfying answers.” —Variety

Vampire Weekend has won one previous GRAMMY, for Best Alternative Music Album at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards for 2013’s Modern Vampires Of The City, and was nominated for a Best Alternative Music Album at the 53rd annual GRAMMY Awards for 2010’s Contra. in 2014 Vampire Weekend performed at the yearly GRAMMY In The Schools Live! concert, accompanied by members of GRAMMY Camp — Jazz Session. The band is currently on the European leg of its Father of the Bride Tour—its biggest and most ambitious outing to date, and one that has seen the band play a triumphant September 6th homecoming staged in-the-round for a sold out crowd of nearly 20,000 fans at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The tour will continue through 2020.

“(4.5 stars) One of the most moving albums of his career… Ghosteen is a masterpiece of melancholy”—ROLLING STONE

“Some music sets out to conjure eternities. Extended drones, chantlike repeating phrases, tolling chords, spacious reverberation: Those are meditative sounds, defying fracture or interruption, tuning out the momentary and the trivial, invoking concentration, absorption, ritual and rapture. It’s the kind of music Nick Cave has chosen for Ghosteen, his 17th studio album leading the Bad Seeds.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Best New Music (8.8) One of his most powerful albums yet, an endlessly giving and complex meditation on mortality and our collective grief… you don’t need to be an expert in Cave’s wider cosmology to be swept inside of Ghosteen, to be devastated by its despair and lifted higher by its humanity. You only need the ability to suffer and the desire to survive.” —PITCHFORK

“This is the sound not of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds pushing against the heavens or crash-landing in the attempt, but floating in the stratosphere themselves… Ghosteen is another major achievement in one of the most remarkable late-career stretches anyone’s ever had… the best version of him as an artist. As a writer, he is concluding this decade at the height of his powers.” —STEREOGUM

“What Cave sends us from this new place is remarkable. Ghosteen is both his most solitary recording since 2001’s No More Shall We Part and impossible to imagine without the contributions of The Bad Seeds. Long one of rock’s most versatile and visceral bands, here they’re tasked with wrapping swirls of atmospheric sound—braids of synth, vibraphones that echo from a mile away—around Cave’s elegant piano playing. He sounds simultaneously alone at the edge of the world and surrounded by benevolent spirits, a fittingly biblical cloud of witnesses who haven’t seen the power of God so much as they’ve moved through the fallout of their own atomic blasts; theirs is a communion of radiation.” —AV CLUB

“A dream world filled with prancing fire horses, stairways to heaven, and ghastly specters traveling down rain-glossed streets. Each line evokes poetic scenes with a vibrancy to rival the best of literature”—CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“Cave’s radical openness has brought him into conversation and solidarity with this global community of people who have lost and who continue to live. For such people, Ghosteen is a sweeping and remarkable gift.” —PASTE

“Nick Cave’s ‘Ghosteen’ finds beauty and hope after darkness… when Nick sings, ‘Just want to stay in the business of making you happy,’ it’s one of the most purely beautiful lines in a love song released this year.” —BROOKLYN VEGAN
