Almost nine years after the release of their debut "Monster Music" EP (adn28), Ad Noiseam is proud to present Larvae's fourth full length album, the deep and introspect "Exit Strategy" (adn160). This album, about which you can read more (or listen to) here, is now available on CD and as digital files. All pre-orders have been shipped and should be the hands of their owners.
Larvae's fourth album is a highly introspect and mesmerizing work which takes a step forward from the more electronic trilogy formed by "Fashion Victim", "Dead Weight" and "Loss Leader". An instrumental, solo work, it is a place where long strings and fragile melodies form a contemplative landscape and relegates the electronic beats to the backgrounc. An intense collection during which Larvae focuses on its most emotional and sincere side, here is a necessary album for introvert nights and profound, closed-eyes listening.
Another video for today, this time with the track "Fire" by Balkansky and Loop Stepwalker (off the "Fraktals" EP and "Adhesion" album) used in this short video against Germany's tabloid culture. Click below to watch cute little characters escaping the pages of a well known populist paper:
Those of you who have been reading our live gigs section recently should have noticed the inclusion of many shows by a new act on the label. Let's make it official now: Ruby My Dear will have his first full length album on Ad Noiseam. This CD, "Remains Of Shapes" to come (Ad Noiseam adn157), will be released in early June 2012. It was recently mastered by Angelos Liaros of Mobthrow, and you can now get a glimpse at his artwork and tracklisting here. And even better, here's a first excerpt from this album:
France's Ruby My Dear has been active for year, landing digital releases on such friendly labels as Peace Off or Acroplane. While his very first venture on Ad Noiseam will be his remix on Whourkr's coming "4247 Snare Drums" (Ad Noiseam adn158), the "Remains Of Shapes To Come" album will be his first long-player, a 13-track statement during which he single-handedly puts breakcore back on the map. Fresh, original, infectious, catchy and efficient: get ready for Ruby My Dear.
With albums ranging from instrumental hip-hop to intricate, gritty pop leanings, Raoul Sinier has always shown how open-minded (and eared) he is through his solo efforts. Starting last year, though, he experimented with not only remixes, but full-on covers of pop tracks, as an art of hommage to acts that had influenced him (remember, we already posted his version of Siouxsie & The Banshees's "Sin In My Heart" here).
The time had come for him to gather all these cover versions, which is the case today with the free release of an 11-track album, simply entitled "Covers". Based on original songs by such a wide array of artists as Björk, Morphine, Portishead or The Doors, it is available for download directly from Raoul Sinier's website or just right here. Click, listen, and enjoy how these songs can sound, re-invented by Raoul Sinier.
