John Foxx and The Maths – New Album – Rhapsody! + Gazelle Twin / ISpeakMachine New EP multibuy

FROM METAMATIC RECORDS:

We’re delighted to announce 2 new releases, Rhapsody and Exponentialism, which are available as a multi-buy HERE

John Foxx And The Maths’ Rhapsody is made up of 10 tracks recorded live at London’s MemeTune Studios in late 2011, shortly after the UK Interplay tour. The Maths line-up on this session is as follows: John Foxx (Vocals, keyboards); Benge (Percussion, keyboards); Hannah Peel (Violin, keyboards); Serafina Steer (Bass, keyboards). It’s fantastic to hear a live band playing with electronics, plus the addition of bass guitar and layers of violin also creates fresh angles and edges on many of the songs. Foxx’s voice is often stripped of effects, adding an emotional shiver to songs such as ‘Interplay’, ‘Hiroshima Mon Amour’ and ‘Just For A Moment’. Meanwhile the opening track is an instrumental version of ‘The Good Shadow’, which features – as do nearly all of the tracks – Hannah Peel on violin. Artwork is by Jonathan Barnbrook. Pre-order HERE

Gazelle Twin, I Speak Machine – Exponentialism. This limited edition EP (only 750 copies) features Gazelle Twin and I Speak Machine (Tara Busch’s new project) who explore Foxx’s lyrical themes and ideas on 4 beautifully executed cover versions which also relate strongly to their own work. I Speak Machine’s take on ‘My Sex’ transforms it into a gigantic, cyber-sensual pop song, while ‘I Want To Be A Machine’ is a much darker, stranger transformation. Gazelle Twin has been planning a cover of Foxx/Gordon’s ‘Never Let Me Go’ for a couple of years. In 2011 she told Artrocker Magazine: ‘Never Let Me Go’ is a mirage of maternal comfort in a toxic and unrelenting world. It’s one of those songs I wish I’d made; drenched in analogue pulses and drones, a lullaby-like synth melody accompanying an android (yet emotional) dual-vocal part. I can definitely feel a cover coming on.’ Meanwhile, Gazelle Twin’s stark version of ‘He’s A Liquid’ reveals a different side to her work as she delivers the surreal, dream-like lyrics in a voice that is completely different to the lullabying ‘Never Let Me Go’.

The John Foxx & The Maths/OMD tour is only just over 3 weeks away and we still have a few Gold VIP tickets for the shows. Priced at £55 the Gold VIP package includes a meet and greet with John at the venue, a VIP laminate and an ultra-rare ‘Underpass’ signed Promo CD. With artwork designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, the mixes by Dave Clarke and Oh The Gilt will ONLY be available on CD as part of VIP packages. If you want to go to the meet and greet please order HERE
Listen to the Oh The Gilt remix of ‘Underpass’ HERE – http://thequietus.com/articles/11862-john-foxx-underpass-oh-the-gilt-mix

If you only want the ‘Underpass’ CD and the VIP laminate and aren’t interested in attending the shows then you can now pre-order HERE

Please note, John Foxx & The Maths will do their best to make sure that all VIPs see the soundcheck but we’ve reduced the price to £55 because we can’t guarantee it on every occasion as they are not the headline act. Also, please note, the VIP passes do not give access to the show, so if you want to attend the concert in the evening you need to buy a separate ticket.

Happy New Year!

From Metamatic forum via Jori Hulkonnen:

Jori Hulkkonen has been talking about one of his new projects…

*****

“One of my current projects is an EP together with one of my all-time heroes, John Foxx. Writing stuff is very cool with him as there’s a very clear idea of what our sound is supposed to be like in 2012. It will be an EP, and we already have a very exciting remix from the film director David Lynch, so that’s a combo that I’m sure will raise a few eyebrows.”

*****

Is this for real? Since when did David Lynch start remixing electronic music?
Wow. Possibilities.. Foxx Music on a David Lynch Movie?
