Richard Youngs Releases New ‘Rurtain’ 12″ via ALTER

Richard Youngs recently released a new electronic 12″ via London-based record label Alter. Titled Rurtain, the a-side features two long-form works. Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club), John Clyde-Evans and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) lend their musical talents to the album’s b-side, each sharing their own remix on Richard’s originals. It’s a limited release – only 300 copies available! Order yours from Alter. Listen to “Rurtain (Shonny Don).”

To celebrate the new release, Alter is hosting a special event at Cafe Oto on October 19 with an exclusive trio performance from Richard Youngs, Neil Campbell and John Clyde-Evans. Details HERE.

“It finds Youngs operating in a mode that’s several leagues from the poppier sounds of his best known work (the likes of Beyond The Valley of Ultrahits). Instead its longform title track, split into two parts – ‘Rurtain (Shonny Don)’ and ‘Rurtain (Keyomarno)’, finds him collaging percussion, wisps of his own voice and stately organ figures into disorienting and immersive patchwork quilt electronica.” – The Quietus

Peter Wolf Crier Premiere “Settling It Off” Remix

Peter Wolf Crier have released a remix of their single “Settling It Off” today. The track features Minneapolis PWC compatriots Joe Horton of No Bird Sing, Kristoff Krane, and Alexei Casselle aka MC Crescent Moon of Kill the Vultures. The four friends met when they were introduced by Mikey Larsen of Eyedea & Abilities, who passed away last year. Peter Pisano says of the track, “Can you hear it when you listen to the remix? You know how it sounds like their verses live in three tenses at once: Grandpa’s earest wisdom, Brother’s beautiful skill, and Mom and Dad’s upright courage? This is what it felt like to drink with Mike.” You can check out the remix here or over at Welikeit.indie

The band is also gearing up for a run of West Coast dates with Birds + Batteries as well as Sondre Lerche later in the month. A full list of shows is here.
