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

WATCH: SHARON VAN ETTEN LIVE ON CONAN

“Cancel ALL of your evening plans. Plant yourself in front of your television and prepare yourself for three or so minutes of some serious greatness. It’s definitely going to be worth it!”

Did you heed our advice yesterday? Tell me you didn’t miss Sharon Van Etten’s performance of “Leonard” last night on “mini” Conan! Luckily for all of us, the fine people at Conan have provided us with the video. WATCH IT ABOVE. Also, don’t miss Sharon perched next to Shaq at the end of show! Uhhhh, can we just say how awesome that was?!?!

Last week, Sharon played to over 3,000 SXSW-goers at the NPR showcase then went on to headline the Jagjaguwar party, only to leave Austin soon after for a Los Angeles take down. Perhaps you heard Sharon play on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic Monday morning? If not, no worries! Stream it HERE. As you can tell, it seems there’s no stopping point in sight. Catch her live with The War on Drugs this spring; full list of dates HERE.
