After three years of non-stop touring following the release of 2010′s debut Feel It Break, when it came time to record Olympia, Austra had evolved into a collaborative effort between its six members and presents a quantum evolution in the Toronto-based band’s sound, structure and style. Produced by Austra with additional production by Mike Haliechuk, the album also features vocal production by Damian Taylor (Björk, The Killers), engineering by Bill Skibbe and Leon Taheny and was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Erasure, Hot Chip).

Brand new EP from Reggio Emilia-based post-rockers Portfolio, featuring two unreleased tracks plus Beth Gibbons e Kim Novak, taken from their debut The Standing Babas, but here nicely re-worked. The first remixed by Silent Panda | Deadly Panda (a.k.a. Luca G from Julie’s Haircut), who plays guitars also on James Horses Chariot and Sion. The second one shows a wonderful different skin with less electronics and the introduction of a string quartet. An appreciated appetizer while waiting for their second full-length, sweetly enhanced by Laura Loriga‘s (Mimes of Wine, Giardini di Mirò) voice.

Brand, highly-awaited, new single for Depeche Mode, first extract from the upcoming Delta Machine. Heaven projects an intimately dark atmosphere with a fuzzily infectious bass lead and solemn piano echoes. Dave Gahan’s voice sounds as good as ever, especially with his uptick in emotion during the second verse and its grimy longing. The bass-guitar interplay during the aerial chorus is also excellent. Exclusively for RS readers, this maxi-bonus edition features the b-side All That’s Mine and four stunning remixes by Matthew Dear, Blawan, Owlle, and Steps to Heaven.

Thom Yorke has confirmed details of Atoms For Peace‘s debut album Amok, which is set for release on February 25th. Atoms For Peace are the Radiohead frontman’s side project with Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, super-producer Nigel Godrich and percussionist Mauro Refosco. We’ve already heard ’round the web the first two singles Default and Judge Jury and Executuioner, plus the stunning b-side What the Eyeballs Did. To celebrate such a colossal issue (and maybe to make the hype around it even bigger), Yorke has set up a mix of some of his favourite tunes, unreleased solo material and remixes.
Suffice to say, it’s essential listening.

Grimes is the moniker of Canadian producer, singer and artist Claire Boucher. She approaches music in a way that is both sensually pleasurable and exploratory: sonic experimentalism run through a ‘pop’ filter. The music is youthfully schizophrenic and searching, a voyage into the yet undefined territory of post-internet, re-spiritualized sound. Grimes strongly values a physical and communal experience of music (it’s danceability), experimental vocalization, and psychedelia. Grimes is self-indulgence, devastation and ecstasy: humanity, spirituality, escapism, identity, reality.

Divine Fits, if you don’t know, is a supergroup / side-project featuring Britt Daniel of Spoon, Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs, and drummer Sam Brown of New Bomb Turks. Daniel and Boeckner are a pair of tightly wound songwriters, and they’ve totally avoided the pitfalls of ego-clash and indulgent showiness that can befall typical supergroups. You might expect a group comprised of three members of other groups might sound divergent and pull in different directions, but actually Divine Fits sounds like a band: a really cool band at that, the kind of band that hangs out in a big garage together, playing rock music, drinking beer, and kicking back. Even the album’s name, A Thing Called Divine Fits, feels like a working title, like something they scribbled on the booking form at the rehearsal rooms or recording studio and kept because it seemed cool. The fact is that these three guys sound like they’re having fun, like being in a band is an authentically fun thing to do. In these trying times for the music industry, that’s something to hold on to.

The Twilight Sad‘s third full-length, No One Can Ever Know, marked a sonic shift for the band. Freshly inspired by a listening diet of Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Magazine, Autechre, and Public Image Ltd., the band turn to a dark and synth-heavy sound. Now the band further immerses itself in dark electronic impulses with a set of remixes from contemporaries including Liars, Optimo, Com Truise, Tom Furse of The Horrors, Ambassadeurs, Breton and more. The remixes open up the dark, crackling originals and add a pulsating snake of rhythm and an intriguing obfuscation of angry static and twitch. It’s a perfect compliment to the seething originals and a new side of the band that many fans will find endlessly enthralling.

A Wrenched Virile Lore is not strictly a remix album to Mogwai’s seventh studio record Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. In fact, Justin Broadrick’s opening take on George Square Thatcher Death Party is billed as a ‘reshape’, whilst long-time friend R.M. Hubbert delivers an incongruous yet beautiful acoustic reworking of Mexican Grand Prix, mixing the original vocals and effects with his own sombre folk style. Anyway, also the more conventional remixes are no less effective, leading to moments which on occasion eclipse its parent album. No small praise.

When you’re listening to Boys Noize’s new album Out of the Black you get a real sense that you’re listening to an artist who was always been torn between the industrial sounds of his native Germany and the unpredictability and flamboyancy of French electronic music.
Out of the Black plays out as an unrelenting power struggle between the best of Germany and France, as he splices gleaming melodies with acid riffs, rasping synths with pummelling drums, and warm robotic vocals with analogue grinding filth. Don’t be fooled though: it’s still hard, loud and in-your-face, but it finally sees Alex Ridha balance his famed raw energy with moments of spine-tingling melancholy, excitement and fun.

DIIV is the nom-de-plume of Z. Cole Smith, musical provocateur and frontman of an atmospheric and autumnally-charged new Brooklyn four-piece that created instant vibrations in the blog-world with their impressionistic debut single Sometime. Enlisting the aid of NYC indie-scene-luminary, Devin Ruben Perez, former Smith Westerns drummer Colby Hewitt, and Mr. Smith’s childhood friend Andrew Bailey, DIIV craft a sound that is at once familial and frost-bitten. Indebted to classic kraut, dreamy psychedelia and the primitive-crunch of late-80s Seattle, the band walk a divisive yet perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence.

In recent years, the members of Bloc Party have spent their down time in various side projects. Frontman Kele Okereke’s extracurricular gigs have been the most high-profile—a dance-music-inspired solo album, The Boxer, as well as vocal cameos on songs by superstar DJs Tiësto and Martin Solveig, while guitarist Russell Lissack toured with Ash. But as it turns out, bassist Gordon Moakes’ spiky post-hardcore sidecar, Young Legionnaire, has the most influence on Bloc Party’s Four. For starters, the album’s producer/mixer is Alex Newport, whose résumé also includes mixing Young Legionnaire’s Wreckonomics EP (along with work for At The Drive-In, Polysics, and Death Cab For Cutie). Newport’s ability to capture post-punk’s harsh angles and jolting energy is one of his biggest strengths, which makes him ideal to wrangle Four’s harsh, raw riffs and rumbling low end. In fact, Bloc Party’s energy and intensity on Four compare with its earliest EPs and first album, Silent Alarm. The aggression of these songs is only magnified by examining Four’s lyrics, which are preoccupied with violence, paranoia, and anarchy. In the end, Four reinforces that Bloc Party continues to be one of the most innovative, vibrant bands to emerge in the last decade, even when they expressly return to the basics.

Citizens! are the bright young thing discovered by Franz Ferdinand‘s Alex Kapranos, and it certainly isn’t hard to discern his influence all over their debut album Here We Are: seductive vocals, a simple two-chord hook, and a bouncy rhythm that swelled into a full-blown disco assault. The aim seems clear: reclaim pop. Propelled ever onwards by Mike Evan‘s unfussy drumming and Martyn Richmond‘s bass, everything else (synths, vocals, and guitars) flit in and out and around them, merely serving as embellishments and providing nothing that could be described as a hook.

So here we are with another great compilation from German label !K7. For its latest Tapes collection Foals have been invited to put together on a mixtape their favourite tracks and it’s not totally surprising to find they’re into new house, old disco, vintage finds and strange instrumental jams. Yes, this is a mixtape of other people’s tunes, like you’ve made in your bedroom dozens of times before. This is a mixtape in the iTunes era: but it isn’t nostalgia, it’s very 2012.
