[Videos]: Goldfrapp – Tales Of Us Films

 

Notes:
Alison Goldfrapp (vocals, synthesizer) and Will Gregory (synthesizer) formed the duo Goldfrapp in 1999. Their style varies from quiet cinematic sounds to dancy pop songs.

Their sixth album “Tales Of Us” was released on Mute in September 2013. The softer sound was compared with their debut album “Felt Mountain” and 2008 release “Seventh Tree”.

For the album Lisa Gunning made five short films that were shown at a special cinema event and will be released digitally with a deluxe edition of “Tales Of Us”. Here are three of them.

Update 27th June 2014: we added the video of “Stranger” – so you can now watch below all 4 films that are available for free (the fifth film is part of the iTunes package of “Tales Of Us (Deluxe Edition)”.

Update 05th August 2014: all 5 films made for TOS are now online. “Laurel” was just added.

Press Info:
Local Suicide are a Berlin love story. Having met across a set of turntables, DJs, producers and dancefloor all-rounders Brax Moody and Vamparela have connected as a German and Greek soundclash since 2007, and ‘We Can Go Everywhere’ rubberstamps their partnership on what is their debut EP.

The onetime members of the short-lived ‘Local Suzie’ band project have gone on to dominate Berlin’s live spots, a grounding that has since seen them filling their passports from New York to Tunesia, Tel Aviv, Istanbul and Barcelona as well becoming event organisers and attractions both home and abroad wherever there’s a set of decks. Multi-taskers coming with divergent interests in hip-hop, electroclash and most things in between, and with an intimate knowledge of their respective regional movements AND the pair also running a respected music blog, Local Suicide are not usually found without their hands to the pump.

‘We Can Go Everywhere’, chanting into a Balearic underworld , is in the classic mode of synth-pop, disco-house and indie dance brought back from the future and into a past discotheque philosophy. Just when you think it’s about to bust out a set of 80s sized shoulder pads, and those synth injections scream out from a bygone era of bigger being better (admittedly the same can be said for the drop-down bass), the pair roll out the beats with a caution turning the vibe into something best served come witching hour. Sprinkling the glitz and glamour with grit and candour and a touch of Gallic groove sensibility, paves the way for three remixes to follow suit. The future-retro scale is further determined when you have the expertise of In Flagranti to truly quantize the boogie, looping the chorus just behind a mix of digital distress signals and road trip guitars until it becomes something near an incantation of Bananarama. Alex Gloor and Sasha Crnobrnja complete two halves of basement seriousness and a hop down a yellow brick road, giving off sharp catwalk glances before breaking out the worm in the name of Factory funk.

Inigo Vontier trains tracky, fractal-examining synths for a deep tech-disco hustle. Powered by low slung electrohouse blips that cram and gang up on the dancefloor so that it needs water cannon fire to disperse it, the Mexican simultaneously makes the original sound intensely alone and on the run, the vocal daring not speak its name until it rushes from the ground on the breakdown with a sense of release. The flashes of those kitsch-tipped synths again keep reminding you of the package’s Euro destination.

Tom Tom Disco’s Richard Rossa is another bringing sounds back and forward, putting spit and shine on mainframe sequences so a vintage glitterball can spin once more. With the ubiquitous synth shunts and bongo percussion not losing sight of the fact that there’s a still pop-ish party going on, the Scandinavian revels in the dust and debris that his machinery comes coloured in, coming up with a snippy slice of incessant analogue disco ensuring Local Suicide’s original revels in its retro roots to the last.

Press Info (English):
Break Line is Anand Wilder (Yeasayer co-founder, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist) and Maxwell Kardon’s passion project, created with a community of friends and ten years in the making. Break Line is cultivated from a story created back in 2004, a classic tale of betrayal, pride and love lost set to music inspired by concept albums and rock operas of the 1970’s.

Listen to Wedding Day below.

The list of players captures a very special, collaborative time in Brooklyn, when the music scene was beginning to erupt. In 2008, Anand and Maxwell put together a core band with Ira Wolf Tuton (Yeasayer) on bass and Christopher Powell (Man Man) on drums. Britt Myers (Charlift, Yeasayer, Passing Strange) helped them put their music to tape as they stayed up late experimenting with sounds and arrangements. To round out the cast they enlisted friends from a myriad of bands: James Richardson (MGMT), bandmate Chris Keating (Yeasayer), Austin Fisher (Suckers), Haley Dekle (Dirty Projectors), Ryan Kattner (Man Man), K Ishibashi (Kishi Bashi), Aku Orraca-Tetteh (Dragons of Zynth), and more.

In the years that followed, the two found moments whenever they could to complete the project. Neither can believe that what started with just the two of them huddled on a cold porch would grow to involve a once-in-a-lifetime cast of collaborators.

 

Press Info (German):
Break Line ist ein Projekt aus Leidenschaft, das Anand Wilder (Yeasayer) gemeinsam mit Max Kardon und einer Anzahl von Freunden über die letzten zehn Jahre betrieben hat. Break Line basiert auf einer Geschichte über Verrat, Stolz und Liebe, die den beiden seit 2004 im Kopf herumspukt. Musikalisch verbeugt sich das Album vor den großen Konzeptalben und Rockopern der 70er Jahre.

Den Vorabtrack Wedding Day gibt es bereits unten zu hören.

Die Namen der beteiligten Künstler ist so nur im Brooklyn der letzten 10 Jahre denkbar: Die Kernband besteht neben Wilder und Kardon aus Ira Wolf (Yeasayer) am Bass und Christopher Powell (Man Man) am Schlagzeug. Britt Myers (Charlift, Yeasayer, Passing Strange) wiederum half aus, die Musik in vielen nächtlichen Sessions aufzunehmen. Die Liste der weiteren Kollaborateure setzt sich (unter anderem(!) zusammen aus James Richardson (MGMT), Chris Keating (Yeasayer), Austin Fisher (Suckers), Haley Dekle (Dirty Projectors), Ryan Kattner (Man Man), K Ishibashi (Kishi Bashi) und Aku Orraca-Tetteh (Dragons of Zynth).

Über die Jahre fanden sie immer wieder Zeit, Break Line voranzutreiben – dass aus ihrem Liebhaber-Projekt, ausgedacht auf der Veranda, zu so einem schönen Gemeinschaftsding werden würde, hätten sie selber nicht für möglich gehalten.
