Matador At Austin’s Mid-March Trade Fair : Get Off My Lawn (And Stay In My Overpriced AirBNB Instead) Edition

By Gerard on Friday, March 13th, 2015

Alright, the moment is almost upon us. Well, upon me, actually. The moment when my adopted hometown is overrun by the craven, the venal, the self-important and self-entitled hordes demanding free drinks, free drugs and drowning out all nuanced musical performances with their hyena-like cackling. But enough about the Matador staff, there’s loads of other horrible people descending on Austin and they DESERVE to know exactly where and when Ceremony, Iceage, Steve Gunn and The New Pornographers are appearing. And as such, Robby has carefully amended a classic Mark Ohe Matador flyer (above) — he was under strict instructions to “appropriate that shit like Robin Thicke”, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Short of the entire week being cancelled, that is. See you in the pit(s of hell).

Iceage and Lower in documentary “13 Torches for a Burn”

By Gabe on Monday, November 10th, 2014

Earlier this year in Los Angeles, Iceage, Lower and many cohorts from their native Copenhagen convened for the 13 Torches for a Burn festival. The energy was combustible, so the LA Fire Department shut it down. Or so we thought…

Jacqueline Castel‘s short film “13 Torches for a Burn” tells another story. The film, premiered b Nowness this weekend, is a gorgeous transplanted scene report, bands sharing a collective musical story far from home:

Plowing Into The Field of Love by Iceage and Seek Warmer Climes by Lower are both available now.

Iceage were on Revolt TV last week and they were spectacular:

There is nothing like a Dane: Lower and Iceage on the radio today

By Hector on Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Copenhagen is better-represented than usual on the nation’s airwaves today, with Lower and Iceage making near-simultaneous appearances at two of the finer college radio stations to which you could ever hope to listen (in my humble opinion).

First off, we have Lower performing live on Radio K, which at this point has to be considered only a notch or two below Prince when it comes to Minneapolis institutions. Listen online at RadioK.org, or on their trio of radio frequencies (770AM, 100.7FM and 104.5FM) if you live in the Twin Cities, starting at 4:30PM EDT/3:30pm CDT.

Shortly thereafter, at around 5:00PM EDT, Iceage will be waltzing into the studio at New York’s WNYU for an appearance on the always vital New Afternoon Show to talk about their just-released album, Plowing Into The Field Of Love, and spin some tunes. WNYU.org is the URL, 89.1FM is the frequency.

ICEAGE LIVE ON KEXP TODAY

By Rian on Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Plowing Into The Field Of Love‘ has been out officially for one day and causing many to feel “emotion” to various degrees. Unless you saw the band when they toured this past spring, you have not yet heard these new songs live. They are back on the road this Friday with show at Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Church, but not before playing LIVE in KEXP’s The Cutting Room Studios in NYC this afternoon at 12:00 EDT. Tune in to 90.3 or kexp.org.

Friday, October 10 – First Unitarian Church, Philadelphia PA*
Saturday, October 11 – Metro Gallery, Baltimore MD*

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.
