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.

Do you remember Nicole Brenny and her solo-project Vague-à-Bonde? Her first album Involution/Evolution was recorded while Nicole was traveling as a true vagabond- sleeping in basements, houses and couch-surfing alone across North America. She currently has settled in Minneapolis, MN and she is working on her second release, co-producing with Chris Heidman (producer of Howler‘s America Give Up). Evolved represents a departure from her first album: it is the first single on her second release which is due out this fall. Evolved is one of many catchy pop songs on the new record that showcase the sonic feeling of what came from so much time alone recording in the woods and exploring the American and Canadian landscape from the driver’s seat. What else? Well begun is half done.

A mysterious SBTRKT‘s remix hit the ground during these days: Hold On comes from heretofore unheard of artist Sisi BakBak. And here’s the strange thing: how can exist an artist that no ones ever heard of, in the internet age? Something smells fishy here and actually it seems to smell like Radiohead! In fact everyone has decided that Thom Yorke is behind this (very good) remix, and it definitely has his spasmodic lilt to it. So check out this super secret one (and its robotic-looped video, directed by Sam Pilling) and let’s hope it’s really him or we’ll all look foolish.
Much appreciated XMas gift from Radiohead: two more pearls from the TKOL sessions.
The Daily Mail has been doing the rounds for a little while now, resonating in hushed movements through the band’s live show and their From In The Basement live show. Now it finally gets its release moment in the spotlight in all its angst-like glory, along with the beautifully effervescent Staircase, a track of buoyant skittering percussion and gently simmering synth-work.

April 16th is Record Store Day: this is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Radiohead couldn’t miss such an occasion and release two new tracks that the band says to be the last ones form The King of Limb sessions we will hear this year. So enjoy!.
