"One of the most unique musicians produced by the UK in recent years, FACT found the news out while interviewing 4AD label boss Simon Halliday. Speaking to Joe Muggs, Halliday revealed that “Zomby’s in New York, and he’s chill. He’s happy. He’s getting some music together and it’s sounding great – really summery and smooth, kinda like that feeling Aphex would get to sometimes, that sort of Richard D. James album where it was really melodic.”

“He seems happy”, Halliday continues. “He sends stuff over, and there’s some great tracks in there, it makes me happy too. I think his last album for us was great, it showed a really great palette of musical tastes, and that he’s a great programmer in terms of actually putting a record together. He doesn’t speed records out for the sake of it, he takes his own time, he’s very thoughtful – but I think if he can do a couple more good albums, he’ll prove to be one of the great producers.”

I bought the 1st album when it came out on Vinyl. Second one wasnt great so I didnt bother. If this is good I'll get it, if not, fuck him.

 

I dont have to like how an artist conducts himself to buy decent tunes.

So I take it Zomby steals music and is an asshole.

 

Whatever, don't like him much anyway. The only good song I've heard by him is Aquafresh.

It's To Be Announced if you guys aren't joking. If you are then erm...whoops.

He makes fantastic music, so I don't really give a fuck.

      Grimes' next LP is slated for release in October. It's been tentatively announced for awhile now, having been scrapped altogether late last year.
       
      Fader cover story on her here, where the release date was mentioned.
       
      She's made it clear none of the singles she's released post-Visions will be on the album, and further stated they don't sound anything like the albums' tracks. I'm relieved by that, while "Go" grew on me I haven't dug the other songs she's put out this year. That said I'm still pretty anxious over whether I'll like the new album or not. I'm glad she's saying she's making it with no outsider expectations factored in though.

      When I First heard "Home" I checked out Hollys other stuff and wished there was an entire album that sounded like that track. Judging by the preview track (which is fucking rad) thats what this album should be. Comes out may 19th apparently.

      Canadian duo Megan James and Corin Roddick - aka Purity Ring - will return with a second album entitled 'Another Eternity’ on March 3rd.
       
      Their 2012 breakthrough debut ‘Shrines’ was in many ways a prescient suggestion of indie and popular music to come. The album earned the #1 spot on iTunes electronic chart, Pitchfork “Best New Music” laurels and praise from New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR and more.
      While ‘Shrines' was composed remotely between Halifax and Montreal, 'Another Eternity' marks the first time Megan and Corin were able to create a record in the same room. The pair ventured home to the frozen industrial landscapes of their birthplace Edmonton, Alberta to document much of what was to become the album. Megan and Corin recorded and produced their follow-up themselves, as always.
       
      With 'Another Eternity', Purity Ring trade the claustrophobic atmospheres of ‘Shrines' for wide-open expanses of sound. Between the brooding anthem ‘begin again’, the infectious ‘bodyache’, and the time suspending ‘stillness in woe’, the emotional geography of Another Eternity is wider than ever: gloomy valleys and gleaming peaks in equal measure. Megan’s vocals are in sharper focus as she details her lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by seacastles, rattling spines and weeping drawers. Corin's gift for evocative melody remains intact but his percussive skills and sense of composition have been refined and honed.

      Tracklisting:
      1. heartsigh
      2. bodyache
      3. push pull
      4. repetition
      5. stranger than earth
      6. begin again
      7. dust hymn
      8. flood on the floor
      9. sea castle
      10. stillness in woe

      This guy seems to do some pretty gnarly drawings - similar to those which I would probably spend hours doing/concentrating on as a kid - to go along with his descriptive pieces about certain artists:
       
      Autechre
       

       
       
       
      Zomby
       

       
       
       
      Kraftwerk
       

       
       
      Have a nose around on his tumblr, plenty more artists are lovingly rendered (apologies if jazz)
