ALGIERS – “But She Was Not Flying”, February NYC Dates

By The Management on Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Algiers fuses the rapturous call and response of millenarian gospel, the bellowing urgency of 60s protest soul and the unhinged ferocity of no wave into a visceral music. With an aesthetic informed by sonic revolutionaries from Nina Simone to Suicide, The Minutemen to PJ Harvey, these three émigrés of the American Deep South conjure dead sounds to life in frightening new directions.

“It’s dark stuff, but good grief they’ve got soul” – Marc Burrows, The Guardian

Algiers’ self-titled debut album is coming later in 2015 from Matador.

Upcoming NYC shows – tickets on sale now.
Wednesday, February 4 – Mercury Lounge, New York NY
Friday, February 6 - Baby’s All Right, Brooklyn NY

Shlohmo Signs to True Panther, Releases New Single Today on True Panther/WeDidIt + Live North American Tour Announced for Spring 2015

By Rian on Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Another announcement from True Panther this afternoon, in Dean’s words:

Waking up from a miraculous dream…pinching ourselves…only to realize that it’s true.

We’re somehow fortunate enough to welcome one of our favorite young producers in the entire world to True Panther Sounds : Shlohmo born Henry Laufer. We will be releasing his forthcoming music alongside our friends, Wedidit, Shlohmo’s homegrown imprint.

As a gentle introduction to this celestial coupling we’re happy to share the first new original solo music from Shlohmo in quite some time, a single called “Emerge From Smoke”.

We printed up 1000 copies on a 7″ that features a physical-only b-side called “Ode 2 Tha Whip”.

Pre-order Emerge From Smoke 7″ HERE
buy Emerge From Smoke on iTunes

Shlohmo’s sound has evolved in ways that are difficult to describe. His unique approach to production seems as steeped in sludge metal as it is in drum & bass, as much IDM as it is R&B. It is somewhere deep within this sonic collage that he has carved out a distinct and celebrated voice in the electronic music space. His production on BANKS’ 2014 single “Brain,” and his sought-after remixes and crossover style, as witnessed in this year’s collaborative release with Jeremih, are further evidence of his immense talent and wide scope of influence.

Next spring also signifies a return to the stage for Shlohmo with a massive headlining national tour, his first with a live band, with more details on its setup to emerge in the new year. With Shlohmo’s new approach to his live set, new label home and new single “Emerge From Smoke,” Shlohmo’s 2015 marks a very exciting and distinct musical direction with a big announcement to follow after the holidays.
