"New Order will return this autumn with their first album in over a decade, Music Complete.

 

Largely produced by the band themselves, with a couple of tracks of helmed by The Chemical Brothers Tom Rowlands, Music Complete features vocals from Brandon Flowers, Iggy Ppop and La Roux.

 

The first track to be unveiled from the album, however, is a straight-up New Order offering titled Restless, which finds the group contemplating life in the modern world. The single will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally on October 9, while Music Complete is out on September 25 on CD, download and limited edition clear vinyl. There will also be an eight-piece deluxe vinyl collection including the album plus extended versions of all 11 tracks on coloured vinyl."

Interesting... I keep meaning to go back and check out what they did after Republic (my last New Order purchase, not counting The Best of New Order).

I think it sounds pretty good. I won't be ordering the 8 disc hypebeast MLG #420 Doritos version but I'll listen to it on Spotify.

I'm more optimistic than I thought I'd be, but the guest vocalists list is scary.

I'll check it out. I think I've got all their albums up until Get Ready and they all get regular spins. Though If I'm honest I'm not expecting much (probably because there's no Hooky)

I'm looking forward to hearing this, since apparently they've been getting into Elektron gear over the past few years..

Got it today. Album is solid but the mastering (on a few tracks) sounds like Hudson Mohawk (i.e utter shit).

 

If you liked their 1989 album, 'Technique', you'll enjoy this.

I really like the synths and production on Plastic, though the vocals remind me of Pop era Bono, and some of the lyrics are pretty cringey (especially on that first single...yeeeee). New Order's been on my discogs-to-check-out list forever. I should probably get on that before checking out the new album.

I whipped through this on youtube and didn't like it, and being old school I have that voice in the back of my head telling me that mostly all of my favorite music I never liked that much on first play. Still, I chose to ignore that and decided to invest my time somewhere else click click click click....

 

But these tracks keep coming on the radio and are getting better and better and proving me wrong.

      "Diamond Version is a collaborative project between two of the most groundbreaking, experimental and forward thinking creators in modern music, Byetone and Alva Noto."

      "As joint heads of the German-based label Raster-Noton, and with solo projects Alva Noto (Carsten Nicolai) and Byetone (Olaf Bender), they have been releasing work that spectacularly blurs the lines between the visceral and the conceptual, bridging the gap between gallery and dancefloor. The release will be supported by audio-visual live performances with featured special guests and the premiere of Diamond Version TV, at Sónar 2012 on Saturday 16 June will feature Atsuhiro Ito."

      "Opening the EP series is Technology At The Speed Of Life / Empowering Change. The combined effect of these tracks’ crisp, synthetic surfaces and the slogans hyperreal imagery is twofold, drawing attention to the sinister utopias the titles suggest, while also hinting at their inherent absurdity."

      “Diamond Version is a project born out of a live situation. We occasionally performed encores together after our solo sets. These spontaneous and improvised tracks always had a kind of “special energy” which we missed in our solo works.”

      “Diamond Version tries to capture this energy and combines it with conceptual ideas: every day we are exposed to the Daily Short Message Information Culture (DSMC), the aesthetic of this information system became a strong topic and a Blueprint of the visual identity of the Diamond Version project.” explains Diamond Version.
      Diamond Version’s aesthetic is charged with surreal and subversive humour, drawing titles and iconography from a host of corporate slogans which are used as track titles across the releases. “We both are obsessed with company logos,” says Nicolai. “We collected these slogans and started reading them, without knowing the companies. In this amount and concentration they become absurd.”

      The duo have known one another since they were teenagers growing up in Germany. A common ground proved intuitively easy to tap into. “Carsten and I share a strong interest in rhythmic music. We also share an idea of general aesthetic, as in design, and prefer even in music, more and more roughness. With Diamond Version we will follow this rough rhythmic direction, we are not DJs and we’re less interested in delivering a functional music to a social situation,” Bender explains, though he’s keen to emphasise that despite its very powerful presence, Diamond Version is not simply a project aimed at club floors. “It’s a bit harsh, and a bit more noisy [than our solo projects], but this is not the main focus.”
