Rounding up the latest release news…

Earth, as in the Seattle-based band named Earth, are set to release their tenth LP, which is titled ‘Primitive And Deadly’, relatively soon.

Well, in September. It finds Earth’s native pairing – long-time collaborators Dylan Carlson and Adrienne Davies – teaming their backing tracks with voxby Mark Lanegan and Rose Windows’ Rabia Shaheen Qazi. Sunn O)))’s Bill Herzog, Built To Spill’s Brett Netson and Narrows’ Jodie Cox also feature on the record’s list of creditors.

And hey, Earth’s label Southern Lord is also bringing back to life a pair of back-in-the-day LPs by the pairing, 2005’s ‘Hex; Or Printing In The Infernal Method’ and 2008’s and ‘The Bees Made Honey In The Lion’s Skull’. The big day of the re-releases is this: 24 Jun.

Pressing on intrepidly after the not exactly overwhelmingly positive reaction to their recently-released LP ‘Someday World’, Brian Eno and Karl Hyde have given their creative alliance another whirl, and will on 30 Jun release another long player titled ‘High Life’.

Explaining why he and Hyde decided to release quite so immediate a follow-on to ‘Someday World’, Brian Eno says: “When ‘Someday World’ was finished I felt like we were still on a roll and I wasn’t ready to stop working and get into ‘promotional mode’ for that record. So I suggested we immediately start on another album, a different one, where we extended some of the ideas we’d started, and attempted some of the ideas we hadn’t”.

Karl Hyde, meanwhile, adds: “I wanted to work with a stripped down set of equipment… For this album I was very keen for Brian to live process my guitar playing so that we would be effecting one another’s performance, bouncing off each other, inspiring new combinations of polyrhythms”.

Next, Brit R&B poster girl Roses Gabor (pictured) last week premiered her new single, the MNEK-mixed ‘Rush’. Landing 24 Jun on Toddla T’s Girls Music label, it looks as if the track is an initial taste of Gabor’s fast-approaching first LP, which is still TBA at the moment. Coast on over and stream ‘Rush’ now:.

NYC rap man Mykki Blanco has screened the new clip for new track ‘She Gutta’, the lead off of his brawny ‘Spring/Summer 14’ EP. It’s quite NSFW, by the way, but nonetheless you should probably just go on and watch it, because a life half-lived is barely a life at all. And also, #YOLO, and all that. Here’s the vid:

We’ll close this thing off with one final new video, this time for ‘SSIM’, the latest track to appear off electronic aesthete My Panda Shall Fly‘s latest EP, ‘No Secrets’. The animated clip, made by CGI creative Clifford Sage, follows an imaginary SIM chip as it travels through a big digital mechanism, kind of like the insides of a robot. It’s weirdly enticing, right?
