A Note and A New Song From Glasser

By Todd Netter on Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

The last public show Glasser played was February of last year. Since then, she’s been locked away in a studio working on her follow-up to 2010′s Ring. She’s playing her first show since then this weekend at LA’s FYF Fest. She’s decided to use the occasion to release her first new music in a while. The song is called “Shape”, it’s a very powerful song, and we can honestly say that it’s one of the best pieces of music that’s ever come out under the True Panther imprint. More Glasser very soon…in the meantime enjoy the music and this note from her.

I have been thinking a lot about space. Not only outer space and physical boundaries, but also inner mental space. There are so many beginnings and endings and edges and shores inside and outside our minds. Some are impossible to scale and they make us feel small. I feel small and far removed at times, and I push myself farther away in a kind of compulsion. These are physical comforts I cling to, but always when I cling to them I realize that the isolation I’m afraid of is in my heart and not on a crowded sidewalk. I also have moments of ecstasy, milestones that drive me forward in search of more. These emotions and sensations elude me though, they seem to exist in their own seperate planes. I still chase them. I can become so mesmerized by something outside myself, a person or place that I try to reflect its power and the way it makes me feel.

This is why I feel so lucky to be able to make art, especially music. My experiences flow together and become the stuff of invention. I spent the last year and a half making my new album, which will come out in October. I thought about architecture, a physical imposition in my life, and the fluid emotional boundaries of relationships, also sometimes imposed.

More news to come, in the meantime, enjoy “SHAPE”

Coachella stage times announced/Bands on the road – Interpol announce special Coachella set details

By Stuart on Thursday, April 14th, 2011

As announced on the official Coachella page, stage times are out now for all bands playing this weekends festival and you’ll find Matador and True Panther bands well represented, without any clashes (…hopefully) too!

Additionally, Interpol have announced exciting details about their Coachella performance in collaboration with The Creators Project, David Lynch, Andi Watson, HPX and Wieden & Kennedy:

Interpol Under Surveillance

Surrounded as we are by an ever-increasing number of cameras in our daily lives, we begin to lose ownership of our own images. Anonymous technology is analyzing, categorizing and archiving our very existence.

Interpol, in collaboration with David Lynch, Andi Watson, HPX and Wieden & Kennedy present a visual juxtaposition of the seen and the unseen. As the observer becomes the observed, the performance explores the deepening layers of covert surveillance, morphing data acquisition into visual beauty and questioning the fine line between the viewer and the voyeur.

Featuring the premiere of the David Lynch animation “I Touch A Red Button Man” for the song “Lights”, and utilizing real-time visual manipulation from Seattle-based HPX, the performance will be streamed live to the internet as well as to the audience at Coachella.

From here Interpol continue their tour around the southern states with School Of Seven Bells, The New Pornographers head out with the Walkmen in tow, Cold Cave join the Kills on the road, Glasser will be supporting TV On The Radio, whilst Delorean bring their broken Spanglish charm to headline shows in Chicago and Brooklyn.

The Coachella stages and times for all our acts are below, enjoy!

Friday
Cold Cave – 3pm @ Mohave Stage
Interpol – 7:25pm @ Coachella Stage

Saturday
Glasser – 5:15pm @ Gobi Tent
The New Pornographers –  6:35pm @ Outdoor Theatre

Sunday
Delorean – Sun, 4/17, 2pm or 3pm @ Gobi Tent
