Nicki Minaj

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Ya girl Nicki Minaj has revealed the release date for her ‘Anaconda’-carrying third LP, ‘The Pinkprint’, and shaken it about a whole lot whilst upside down. And the release date, she says via Twitter, is 24 Nov. Do with than info ‘ass’ you like. LOL.

• A microsite has appeared on the internet in the name of sonic experimentalist Holly Herndon, so that’s nice. Titled ‘Call’, it features lots of shifting images and interactive noise clips, and is linked to Holly’s label Rvng Intl, which likely means it’s signaling some kind of official HH release. Anyway, have a play with it here.

• Cat Power has announced two London shows on 10 and 11 Nov, both at Union Chapel and both supporting CP’s now-quite-old album ‘Sun’. The hope is that Cat doesn’t cancel the shows like she did that time in 2012. Go get tickets here and here. Go!

• Avant garde-ish rock band Swans are going to play a show at the Roundhouse, in London, on 21 May 2015, and have released a short film to prove and celebrate it. Pick up tickets via this page, please.

• Finally, beatsmith-to-Kanye, Evian Christ, is teaming with promotions firm Oscillate Wildly to present a Trance Party night at London’s Corsica Studios on 31 Oct (fancy dress optional). The bill features Christ B2B with Mssingno, as well as Total Freedom, NGUZUNGUZU, Boothroyd and Danny L Harle. Click here to get tickets.
