Gary is a Robot, Au Revoir Simone, Dinosaur Jr., Lia Ices etc

My inbox has been filling up again, first up from Om Records:

A few short months after the release of the long-anticipated new Zion I record, Bay Area producer and remix mastermind AmpLive is set to unveil the inaugural record on new Om Records imprint, Child’s Play. Merging the sounds of hip hop, electro, disco, d&b and dubstep, the new brand within the Om family is a fitting home for Murder at the Discotec- AmpLive’s latest soiree into gritty electro and dancefloor-ready anthems, due in early Fall.

When Amp told us he wanted to make an electro album, we were all like, “Huh? For real? Wtf.” Well naysayers like us be damned, because the first single from the record, “Gary is a Robot,” is a synth-hop banger featuring the Bay’s own Trackademicks of Fools Gold fame & Micro Jaxson. Meanwhile, the B-side, “Get Served,” features Freestyle Fellowship legend Mykah Nyne, ginned up by unadulterated dub step production.

The single is out May 12th, but if you can’t wait til then, Turntable Lab has your exclusive pre-release download.

And then from Jez at Nile-On:

Well, the most fucked up bizarre thing just happened, I opened the mail and it looked to be a stormer of a track BUT the freaking thing has just disappeared into the ether, I have asked them to resend, it looked great, so I will endeavour to get it for you again as well as anything else they might have! Apologies for the inconvenience!!!!

And now what would a post of mine be without some tracks from RCRD LBL?:

This remixed “Shadows” track churns out maze-like layers of wonky ambient textures, meshing analog synth, clock like ticks, and deep bass.

True story: when we turned “I Want You To Know” on this morning, J. Mascis’ thick fist of fuzz came out of the speakers and used our eardrums as speed bags—Neil Young-ish chords smeared in amp waste, slacker hero mumbling, the rest of the band fighting to be heard through the walls of guitars.

Lia Ices is a rising singer/songwriter from Brooklyn, NY, who released a criminally overlooked LP, Necima, late last year. “You Will” stems from that record, a soft ballad that hangs on floating piano chords, Lia’s arching voice, and sporadic clarinet.
