Strange WeatherAnna Calvi is to release a 5 track covers EP entitled 'Strange Weather.' Produced by Thomas Bartlett
(The National, Antony and the Johnsons, Sam Amidon) and recorded in New York, the EP features
covers of tracks by FKA twigs, Connan Mockasin, Suicide, David Bowie as well as a stunning
collaboration with David Byrne on the title track, a cover of Keren Ann's 'Strange Weather'.
The cover of Suicide's Ghost Rider was recorded with drummer Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley), and Nico
Muhly contributes string arrangements to the EP opener, a deconstructed organic reworking of FKA
twigs' 'Papi Pacify.'
David Byrne said the following on working with Anna:
'I'm a big fan of Anna's two records... and I caught her tour after her first record at Bowery Ballroom
here in NY. 'Epic' I think is the word that is often used. So when Thomas Bartlett said he was going to
be in the studio producing an EP of Anna doing covers I immediately agreed to join in. I was invited
to suggest songs and I loved the last Keren Ann record and I thought Strange Weather had a haunting
quality that might suit Anna.... so we did that, and Anna then suggested I join in on the Connan
Mockasin track she'd done too.'1. Papi Pacify

FriendsWith Friends White Lies haven't so much abandoned their trademark synth-rock sound as given it a spring clean by exploring new sounds. Recorded in Bryan Ferry's private studio in London's Olympia, the album was self-produced by the band. White Lies enlisted the help of an expert team including Grammy Award-Winning engineer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys), David Wrench (Caribou, FKA Twigs) on mixing duties and long-term collaborator Ed Buller, who contributed additional production.1.

Till The TombBeaty Heart created Till The Tomb with producers David Wrench [FKA Twigs, Caribou, Jungle] & Dave Eringa
[Manic Street Preachers, Wilko Johnson].
The band members Joshua Mitchell, James Moruzzi & Charlie Rotberg
came together with a genuinely alternative vision for pop that crystallized on their 2014 full-length debut Mixed
Blessings. They began winning over U.S. audiences by touring with the likes of JUNGLE. Now it careens from the
delicate wilting hum of "Flora" to the unshakable title track.1. Flora

25 25Factory Floor return to DFA with their sonically striking sophomore album, 25 25. What was once a trio is now a duo, with members Gabe Gurnsey and Nik Void holding it down and co-writing and recording the new LP together.
Their debut self-titled album (2013) embraced industrial, post-punk, disco, acid, avant-garde minimalism, electro, dub and - most crucially - the dancefloor, without being beholden to any one genre. (Pitchfork) 25 25 certainly does not forego any of these genres. What it adds to it is a new level of intricate detail in the production and mixing, with hyper-attention paid to drums & percussion. Mixing was completed by David Wrench (Caribou, FKA Twigs) was emphasizing their love of classic & modern dub. Nik Void's hypnotic / robotic vocals also take a new-found center stage on many tracks.
This artificial and human adding an extra layer of alienation with barely discernible lyrics on top of rock-steady time keeping and the arpeggiated squelching synths Factory Floor became initially known for.LP 1

PlaymatesFat Possum Records is pleased to announce the release of Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders' upcoming album Playmates. The first taste of the record Come On Back This Way showcases newfound lightness for Ladder, weaving a glistening synth melody with a chorus duet and wordless backing from Sharon Van Etten.
Three years after the acclaimed HURTSVILLE and a move from the inner city of Sydney, Australia to the Blue Mountains, Jack Ladder returns with his new album Playmates. The album is produced by Kim Moyes of The Presets, and mixed by David Wrench (Jungle, FKA Twigs, Caribou,Seekae). The Dreamlanders - Kirin J. Callinan (whose own album Embracism was released last year on Terrible / XL) Laurence Pike (of PVT) and Donny Benet - reunite to play on the record, with Sharon Van Etten contributing vocals to two tracks.
Playmates will be Jack Ladder's fourth album, and his first on Fat Possum. His previous two albums (2008's Love Is Gone and 2011's HURTSVILLE) were shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize. It's been a long journey to this point, and Playmates finds Jack Ladder at a creative apex, moving on from the darker roads into the curious, bold komische synthesizers which backlight Playmates. Ladder's latest work cogently recalls a time when albums were made to the parameters of the encroaching technology of the compact disc. But this album is where songs take precedence over an idea.
Playmates songs are muscular, raw - yet polished to the texture of a skyscraper. The lyrics themselves are haunting; they possess the poetic slur of a black-pupilled vision of romantic despair, love's unsure footing and a palpable air of Ballardian discord beneath the surface. The songs pulse with life. Synthesizers and drum machines rub shoulders with glam guitars and pedal steel, while above all, Ladder's granite baritone slashes at love and darkness like a heavy blade. He is a tender, persistent lover; a despairing prince at the battlements.
There is also the notable presence of Sharon Van Etten. On working with Jack Ladder, she says, When I first saw Jack Ladder...it blew me away. He's got a darkness to his vocals and lyrics but with a wink. It was really fun and an interesting challenge and his songs are killer. I feel lucky to have been a part of it.
Playmates breadth of ideas, its sinister anxiety-dream lyrics and particular vision of the world offer us as complete a view of this unfathomable Jack Ladder character as we are ever likely to observe in this dimension.1. Come On Back This Way
