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.

VIDEO : Lower – “Daft Persuasion”

Lower are back on the road (this time with Merchandise), playing shows across the US and Canada through mid-October. Before they took off they made a new music video for “Daft Persuasion” off debut album Seek Warmer Climes. Watch the band-directed video above. It premiered this morning on Stereogum.
