  • White Ring – Gate Of Grief (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1619390 WHITE RING mark a triumphant return with a brand new full-length Gate Of Grief, due out on Rocket Girl on 22 June 2018. Their debut album arrives a full eight years since their benchmark EP, Black Earth That Made Me, which sold out almost instantly, making their records some of the most highly sought after on the underground scene and earning them a cult following across the globe. Swerving from aggressively abrasive to beautifully ethereal, musically they draw from varied and challenging palette, whilst tackling themes of loss and acceptance due to struggles with drug addiction and existential dread on a broader scope.

    WHITE RING were originally formed by Bryan Kurkimilis and Kendra Malia, before they were joined by Adina Viarengo, with Bryan and Adina currently touring as a duo. One of the most acclaimed proponents of the “Witch House” movement, WHITE RING blend heavy, distorted electronics with eerie, unsettling vocals. However, their new material, created over the course of seven years, pushes the boundaries further, subverting genre ideas and mashing them all together, with industrial, metal, rave, chopped and screwed, rap, grunge, neo folk, post punk and new wave all in the mix. As Bryan Kurkimilis explains, “We treat our influences like tools to create a certain feeling. We are interested in covering more ground than sticking to a certain formula.”
    Bryan and Kendra originally met on Myspace in 2006. At the time Bryan lived in New Orleans and Kendra was in New York, and they didn’t even meet face-to-face until 2008 after they had already released a few singles. In 2010 they released the EP Black Earth That Made Me, which was a collection of songs that they mostly recorded before they met in person. The record confounded expectations by selling out immediately on pre-order, making it very rare and highly sought after, with copies going on Ebay for large sums. It was reissued by Rocket Girl in 2011 and still continues to sell in voluminous amounts.

    They started playing live in 2009 and rapidly grew a reputation for their captivating performances, usually bringing their own lighting equipment and putting on a spectacular laser show. They have played for large crowds in their hometown of NYC and toured the UK in 2010 in support of their sold out split 7″ with oOoOO, playing InTheCity and SWN festivals – which were their first shows outside of New York. They have since shared the stage with the likes of Cold Cave, araabMUZIK, Liturgy, Blank Dogs, Gatekeeper, Blondes, oOoOO, Clams Casino, and others.  
    They started recording Gate Of Grief in 2010, with the hope of exploring new musical territory, however they took a while to find their path. Bryan and Kendra had some tough personal battles to fight, a sense that pervades the whole album. Thematically it delves in to some pretty dark places whilst exploring the concept of time and what it does to people, relationships and society. As Bryan explains, “There is a lot of tragedy in this album but there is also hope at the end of it.”

    By 2016 pressure was building to finish recording, however due to Kendra’s ill health, they needed to bring in someone new to assist with vocals. Fortunately they found Adina Viarengo, who had played in various bands and gave them the impetus needed to complete the album. Shortly after meeting in Brooklyn, Bryan and Adina moved to Joshua Tree, California to finish recording the album, before settling in Massachusetts. Her vocal style fitted in seamlessly with what Kendra had been doing, and although she sang on half the songs, it’s almost impossible to tell who is singing on which track, thus making her the perfect addition to the band.
    Gate of Grief can be considered the second part of Black Earth That Made Me, or rather, they are the first two chapters in an overarching trilogy about evolution. As Bryan explains, “First you are born but then you realize what you are and what is against you and it’s a flood of emotion that you can only hope to hold on for and let it pass.”
    The album title, Gate of Grief, refers to the real gate between Africa and Saudi Arabia that is believed to be the spot where the first humans migrated out of Africa and went on to populate the rest of the world. The album art ties in with this concept, with an image depicting a group of settlers in the USA in early 1900 during a parade. They were actually from a cult in the early 1900s in Bryan’s hometown of Fort Myers, Florida.
    Dwelling on the outskirts of pop music, WHITE RING grew up in the age of the internet and were exposed to a huge range of music. They have developed a unique style while pushing the boundaries of accessibility and musical genre. They have created a piece of art that is brimming with symbolism and underlying tensions, that seduces and scares in equal measure.

    “Fantastically dark as it fuses slo-mo hip-hop and distorted trance its scare comes in how seductive if it is.” Loud & Quiet 9/10
     
    “With their distorted synths, gunshot claps and ghoulish diva… evoking a horribly claustrophobic atmosphere.” Uncut

  • Pieter Nooten – Stem

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1618873 Eine der faszinierendsten Kollaborationen des Jahres 2018 präsentiert Rocket Girl mit Pieter Nootens viertem Soloalbum “STEM”. Nooten schließ sich mit dem legendären Produzenten / Mixer/ Soundkünstler Stephen W Tayler (Kate Bush, Underworld) in Peter Gabriels Real World Studios ein und produzierte wohl das bislang beste Werk seiner Karriere seit der Zusammenarbeit mit Michael Brook vor 30 Jahren für den zeitlosen Kultklassiker “Sleeps With The Fishes”.

    Er knüpft an seine 2013er Doppel-CD “HAVEN” an , lootet weiter die Grenzen zwischen Neoklassik und Ambient aus und liefert ein Album mit herzzerreißenden, tiefgründigen melodischen Kompositionen, die dazu einladen, “STEM” immer wieder zu hören. Die CD-Version ist 60 Minuten lang (inklusive Bonustrack “I Felt”). Die Vinyl-Version ist angepasst, um auf eine Platte zu passen. Die limitierte Auflage erscheint als 180g Vinyl und kommt mit einer Postkarte und einem Downloadcode des gesamten 60-minütigen Albums.

    Erhältlich ab 01.06.2018

  • Pieter Nooten – Stem (180g / LP+MP3)

    Image: 1618874 “Organic Beauty From The Digital Age”

    Rumored to be one of the most intriguing collaborations of 2018, Rocket Girl presents Pieter Nooten’s 4th solo album ‘STEM’ as Nooten teams up with legendary producer/ mixer/sound-artist Stephen W Tayler (Kate Bush, Underworld) at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios. ‘STEM’ is probably Nooten’s finest work since collaborating with Michael Brook 30 years ago, producing the timeless cult classic ‘Sleeps With The Fishes’.

    Setting the tone in his 2013 double CD ‘HAVEN’, Nooten further explores the boundaries between the neoclassical and ambient genre, delivering an album of heart wrenching, profound melodic compositions that invites you to listen to ‘STEM’ over and over again.

    “Moments in life so often slip by with only the rusted acquaintance of memory to recall them but with a masterpiece like Haven in your collection you won’t ever walk alone. No matter the slips and pitfalls you encounter or the loves you recriminate yourself for squandering, Pieter Nooten’s newest will allow you to dwell with your thoughts in private with dignity…”

    “Haven is the kind of record that gives modern composition a good name. It will also give countless budding musicians the belief that they can create a valid piece of work with nothing but a laptop. This may not be a bad thing, but it will be a while before anything in the genre matches the maturity, warmth and technical ability displayed by Nooten…”

    The CD version is 60 minutes long (including bonus track I Felt.)

    The vinyl version is specially adapted to fit on a record. Limited edition, 180g vinyl. Comes with a postcard and a download code of the full 60 minute album.
