Coming October 6 : Iceage – ‘Plowing Into The Field Of Love’, “Forever” Video, North America/EU/Australia Tour Dates

By The Management on Thursday, September 4th, 2014

“Forever” – directed by Catherine Pattinama Coleman

On October 6 (October 7 in North America, Matador will be releasing the 3rd Iceage album, ‘Plowing Into The Field Of Love’. Recorded by Jens Benz and Nis Bysted at Koppom, Sweden’s Silence Studios (and produced by Bysted and Iceage, the new record channels the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship, ‘Plowing Into The Field of Love’ features piano, mandolin, viola and organ atop Johan Suurballe-Wieth’s razor-sharp guitars and the lolloping, synchronized rhythm section of Jacob Tvilling Pless and Dan Kjær Nielsen. The record has a clear, uncompressed sound, and Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s desperate vocals are out front, nakedly accountable for the words.

On this album, Rønnenfelt sings of what it is like to be out in the world, dizzy with its offerings, perched on a plateau of false confidence, bliss, fantasy and delirious self-denial. The autobiographical “Forever,” for which Iceage have shared the video today, begins with a pretty repetitive motif over the words, “I always had the sense that I was split in two,” and climaxes with a sunburst of horns recalling South African spiritual jazz great Mongezi Feza: “If I could dive into the other, I’d lose myself forever.” At the other extreme, the album evokes a sort of euphoria, especially in the unexpectedly upbeat country number “The Lord’s Favorite,” and even humor. Yet desperation and loss lurks behind. This is an album about seeing, learning, and rejecting things, in a cycle that repeats and builds. The reference points are wildly varied, but the sound is uniquely and darkly Iceage as the record fights with itself, in the story it tells, and the sound it makes. It is not, however, a remotely difficult record. It is the anthemic sound of a band in motion, unafraid of change, filled with curiosity, musicality and ambition.

Iceage will be touring Australia, North America and Europe this fall.

Coming 12/3 : A Lower-Than-Low Priced Compilation LP Of Matador 2013 Highlights

By Gerard on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

OK, we missed Black Friday by a few days, but if that means ONE LESS TRAMPLING this holiday shopping season, it was totally worth it.  On December 3, we’re releasing a limited edition, one-time pressing of a $5.99 list LP , ‘It’s Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You‘, featuring 9 songs from (most of) our 2013 releases. In addition to album tracks from Chelsea Light Moving, Majical Cloudz, Body/Head, Lee Ranaldo & The Dust, Iceage and Kurt Vile, there’s a live version of Queens of the Stone Age performing “If I Had A Tail” at the 2013 iTunes Festival (Roundhouse, London),  Savages’ “City’s Full” from last summer’s KEXP session, and Yo La Tengo performing “Before We Run” in those same KEXP studios.

We don’t have any copies for mail order, sadly, but hopefully you’ll find one at your favorite record store after they’re done sweeping up all the broken glass, blood, etc. from Black Friday.  If you prefer, you can order a digital version of the comp. right now at the Matador Store.

Iceage ‘You’re Nothing’ is out today

By Robby on Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

 

… and just like that, Iceage’s sophomore album, ‘You’re Nothing’ is available worldwide  in all modern-day conceptions of music retailler (Matador store, Insound, Amazon, iTunes & of course your local indie).   The New York Times have dropped some praise on the album’s “coiled contraptions, unruly by design” whereas Pitchfork, awarding their ‘Best New Music’ tag note Iceage coming off “even younger, wilder, and more chaotic than on their 2011 debut, but also more experienced and nuanced” & SPIN chimes in: “smarter, faster, catchier and noisier than their debut“”.

Grab a sneak peak of the album over at AbsolutePunk, where they’re streaming the album for a week.

Then, see Iceage on tour.  Oh yeah & buy the record, you’ll love it.
