    The North

    For more than a decade now, Stars have been winning over audiences with their sensitive, dreamy indie pop tunes. On September 4, the band will release their latest full-length offering, The North, via their own Soft Revolution Records imprint in Canada and via ATO Records south of the border. For fans who just can't wait until the disc is in stores, you can hear the whole thing now on Exclaim.ca.


    The 12-song album was co-produced by Stars along with Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, Little Scream) and Graham Lessard (Plants & Animals, Young Galaxy) at RCA Victor Studios in Montreal. It is Stars' sixth album overall and follows 2010's The Five Ghosts.

    Fans of Stars' past work are sure to find more material to enjoy here, since tracks like The Theory of Relativity and Hold On When You Get Love and Let Go When You Give It show the band at their most dreamy and pop-oriented, while the charging Backlines is slightly more rocking but will all Stars' signature sweetness.

    Intensity Ghost

    Intensity Ghost is the first studio release by Chris Forsyth with the Solar Motel Band (the new
    group formed in the wake of his critically acclaimed 2013 solo record Solar Motel) and it's a
    career-defi ning statement of purpose and a near virtual history tour of late 20th century electric
    guitar, touching on widescreen psychedelia, art rock, the late-70's New York scene, and the melting
    pot of early 90's underground bands, but writing a whole new chapter, unforeseen by most in 2014.


    Solar Motel was received as a singular work of guitarroristic finesse, turning up across many year ends
    lists (Uncut, New Yorker, etc) and provoking ecstatic comparisons to psychedelic visionaries and the
    countless champions of guitar-based music who tend to outlive the trends.


    Whereas Solar Motel was a Forsyth solo album recorded with an ad hoc studio band, upon its release
    Forsyth put together a group of players to tour the record - bassist Peter Kerlin, guitarist Paul Sukeena
    (Spacin'), and drummer Steven Urgo (ex-The War on Drugs) - who took his vision to another level.
    Forsyth brought this group, now called The Solar Motel Band, into the studio in late 2013 to make
    Intensity Ghost, largely forsaking the epic sprawl of Solar Motel in favor of a startlingly diverse and
    focused set of songs. The result is a 5-track masterwork and a rare combination of power and grace.


    Just as The Grateful Dead or Popul Vuh were able to embrace broad spectrums of sound and transform
    those infl uences, the Solar Motel Band distills Forsyth's message while avoiding any genre-exercises.
    Intensity Ghost is a giant sounding record, it's hall sized psychedelia fi lled with hooks and an immediacy
    rarely found in such sweeping, cinematic music. The in fluences are not hard to spot, but this is no retro
    reenactment trip. Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band synthesize rather than emulate what has come before,
    producing something all their own. Their music is expansive, yes, but also profoundly compelling and
    lyrical; no one is missing a singer in the Solar Motel Band. Forsyth's guitar makes sure of that.

    Tiger Army III: Ghost Tigers Rise

    Tiger Army III: Ghost Tigers Rise is Tiger Army's third full-length album. It was released by Hellcat Records on June 29, 2004. It takes the psychobilly of their first two efforts and layers it with elements of country, blues and punk to create a more mature and emotional sound than previous works. The focus of the lyrics on the album range from topics of ghosts and vampires to life and love. The album was well received and led to their first U.S. headlining tour in spring of 2005.

    A Ghost Story is the new film from director David Lowery (Pete's Dragon) starring Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea) and Rooney Mara (Carol). In this singular exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence, the movie follows a recently deceased, white-sheeted ghost returning to his suburban home to try and reconnect with his bereft wife. The score to A Ghost Story was composed by Lowrey's frequent collaborator Daniel Hart (Tumbledown). Astral in sound and cosmic in scope, Hart's compositions for A Ghost Story will haunt you.

    Disciples Of California

    A mix of pop melodies, minimal country truisms, jingle-jangling Californianism, and angular folk. Lyrically and conceptually, the duo continue down their twisted path after five full-lengths and an EP in their five year history. The ghosts of girl-beauties, whispering trees, swimming-hole cousins, crippled horses, and human-faced animal-saints all join the dizzying parade.

    There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light

    STARS have made their career telling the tales we keep in the darkest, and most
    hopeful parts of our souls. Delivering the hard and soft edges of life and love as
    only this band can, they returned with two new tracks Privilege and We Called
    It Love.


    From the reflective beauty of Amy Millan's vocal in Privilege "never got what you
    want, never got it" to Torquil Campbell's contemplative and contrary, "I don't believe
    that people change but I've changed" on We Called It Love, Stars return
    time and again to comfort and reassure us that within the experience of failure
    and fucking up is the path to a life well lived.


    A collective band statement notes, "We're back! We have a new album. It was
    recorded in Montreal and Connecticut with the great producer, Peter Katis. We
    love him and thank him for being there for us. It's our first with our friends at Last
    Gang. We made this record for ourselves, for our kids, and for you. And we are
    so happy and grateful that you're still listening to our music."


    With approaching 20 years as a band and a storied album catalog spanning
    2001's Nightsongs, the romantic upheaval of 2003's Heart and 2004's Set Yourself
    On Fire, 2007's In Our Bedroom After the War, the downcast elegies of 2010's
    The Five Ghosts, the rejuvenation of 2012's The North and sub-base, dance club
    infused No One Is Lost in 2014, Stars continue to prove themselves some of the
    finest musical storytellers in the country, moving through life with their fans.

    Meliora (Deluxe Edition)

    Deluxe Version Includes Ghost's New EP, Popestar.


    Steeped in subversive themes of humanism, counterculture and anti-establishmentarianism, Meliora was produced by Klas Ahlund, mixed by Andy Wallace, and is Ghost's heaviest and most melodic project to date. Lead singer Papa Emeritus II was 'let go' and replaced by the younger, more powerful Papa Emeritus III, who expertly leads his Ghouls through 10 scorching tracks, including 'Cirice', which means church in Old English and is an ode to institutions inventing the problem so that they can offer the solution.


    This deluxe version includes Ghost's new EP, Popestar, which features one new original song and five newly recorded cover songs .

    The Veil

    Simian Ghost is an alternative pop act from Sandviken/GÄvle, Sweden. It was initiated as a recording project by musician and visual artist Sebastian Arnström. His debut album, Infinite Traffic Everywhere, was received with blog praise and excellent reviews, topping the Critics Chart in Sweden. The second album Youth was released throughout the world to great reviews and radio support. Simian Ghost originally performed live as a trio, consisting of Sebastian on vocals and electronics, his brother Erik Klinga on drums & Mathias Zachrisson on guitar, (both members of Light Vibes). More recently, they have added two new live members Maja Agnevik on additional vocals and Wilhelm Magnusson on bass. They have already shared stages with the likes of Mount Kimbie, SBTRKT, Niki & The Dove and Tony Buck.

    LYFE


    Weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic, Brooklyn's
    Glass Ghost offers dance-friendly art pop.
    - TIME OUT NEW YORK


    ...that irresistible, disjointed mix of pop hooks and
    Beefheartian abandon.
    -VILLAGE VOICE


    ...an affecting, gently aspirated bedtime piece...In
    tune and percussion it struck me as the nocturnal
    cousin to Merriweather Post Pavilion's Guys Eyes.
    - STEREOGUM


    ...a fractured bit of art-pop featuring...intoned
    falsetto over some spare production and airy beats.
    -PITCHFORK


    Since the release of their debut album Idol Omen in 2009, Glass Ghost's founding members Eliot
    Krimsky and Michael Johnson have kept busy. In addition to playing dozens of shows, including
    a tour with White Rabbits, Johnson joined Dirty Projectors as their new drummer, Krimsky has
    been collaborating with Here We Go Magic on keys, and the duo welcomed two new members to
    the group, Tyler Wood on keyboards and percussion, and Aerial East on vocals. Like their debut,
    LYFE was produced by Tyler Wood, who also produced Joan As Policewoman's 2014 album The
    Classic. For the LYFE recording sessions, the group recruited many of their friends to contribute, including Joan Wasser of Joan As Policewoman, Nat Baldwin of Dirty Projectors, and
    Christopher Tignor of Slow Six and Wires Under Tension. Pushing their songs to new levels by
    working with Brooklyn's musical elite is nothing new for Glass Ghost. They worked with more
    than a dozen of their friends from Brooklyn's music community, including Sharon Van Etten
    (who in 2011 noted "Eliot Krimsky is one of my favorite writers."), Here We Go Magic's Luke
    Temple, and Matt Iwanusa of Caveman, for their debut which was described by the New Yorker
    as "elegant compositions of frosted indie pop," and by Time Out New York as "weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic.


    On their new album LYFE, Krimsky (who's currently working on his M.A. in Media Studies at The
    New School, where he's exploring the convergence of technological mediation, identity and
    music) turns his observations of the absurd and mundane into metaphors about living in a
    world where every detail about your life is harvested, quantified, and used by marketing companies to manipulate your behavior. Rather than sounding didactic or overly intellectual, the
    songs provide windows into the band's internal world, as Krimsky's tender falsetto glides over
    the icy landscapes of synths, strings, woodwinds, and regal horns. As the product of Krimsky,
    Johnson, and Wood's mutual trust, vision, and relentless attention to every detail, LYFE masterfully blends airy, melancholy, and chilly atmospherics with Glass Ghost's irresistible bottom-heavy grooves and hooky pop sensibilities.

    Psychic 9-5 Club

    Psychic 9-5 Club marks the beginning of a new chapter for HTRK. It's
    an album that looks back on a time of sadness and struggle, and
    within that struggle they nd hope and humour and love. It's Jonnine
    Standish and Nigel Yang's rst album recorded entirely as a duo-
    former band member Sean Stewart died halfway through the
    recording of their last LP, 2011's Work (Work, Work).


    Though the record is instantly recognisable as HTRK-Standish's vocal
    delivery remains central to the band's sound, while the productions
    are typically lean and dubby-they've found ample room for
    exploration within this framework. Gone are the reverb-soaked guitar
    explorations of 2009's Marry Me Tonight and the fuzzy growls that ran
    through Work (Work Work). They've been replaced with something
    tender, velvety and polished. This is HTRK, but the esh has been
    stripped from their sound, throwing the focus on naked arrangements
    and minimalist sound design.


    The album was recorded at Blazer Sound Studios in New Mexico with
    Excepter's Nathan Corbin, who had previously directed the video clip
    for Work (Work Work) cut Bendin. Inviting a third party into their
    world was no easy decision, but in Corbin they found a kindred spirit.
    The LP was then rened and reworked in Australia at the turn of 2013,
    before the nishing touches were applied in New York during the
    summer.


    Of all the themes that run through Psychic 9-5 Club, love is the most
    central. The word is laced throughout the album in lyrics and titles-
    love as a distraction, loving yourself, loving others. Standish's lyrics
    explore the complexities of sexuality and the body's reaction to
    personal loss, though there's room for wry humour-a constant
    through much of the best experimental Australian music of the past
    few decades.


    Standish explores her vocal range fully-her husky spoken-word drawl
    remains, but we also hear her laugh and sing. Equally, Yang's
    exploratory production techniques-particularly his well-documented
    love of dub-are given room to shine. They dip headlong into some of
    the things that make humans tick-love, loss and desire-with the
    kind of integrity that has marked the band out from day one. Psychic
    9-5 Club is truly an album for the body and for the soul.

    L1 EP

    For much of the Brooklyn duo's career, Beacon has worked
    with a kind of effervescent, forward-looking R&B that evokes
    out-of-body experiences, but with their new L1 EP, the music
    is anchored assuredly to your flesh, bone, and physical
    senses. The brawny synth timbres which open lead track
    Fault Lines and the stomping beats bolstering gauzy
    falsettos on confident songs like Minor Structure set the
    tone for a new phase in Beacon's evolution, one geared
    toward the movements and magnetism of human bodies. As
    producer Jacob Gossett puts it, Our records have often been
    described as moments after the night has given way, a
    'comedown after the club.' Hopefully, this record inspires
    people to go back out for one more.


    Mixed by Al Carlson-who has worked on Autre Ne Veut's
    Anxiety and St. Vincent's Marry Me, among many other
    notable records-L1's five tracks focus on themes provided
    by a natural phenomenon in gravitational physics known as
    Lagrangian points. The title itself refers to the point in space
    where a satellite can fall in synchronous orbit with the earth
    around the sun, caught between the two gravitational pulls
    and never falling out of sync. With a breathy voice that
    sounds as vulnerable as it does touchingly sanguine, singer
    and producer Thomas Mullarney III translates the idea to
    nuanced musings on internal conflict, human relationships,
    and questions about desire, guilt, and pleasure. I wanted to
    stage intimacy and desire as natural forces," explains
    Mullarney, "spinning with reflex and intuition, caught within
    different spheres of influence."

    The Other Side Of Desire

    In the hands of the eccentric jazz-pop poet Rickie Lee Jones, the phrase the other side of Desire could mean a lot of things. As it happens, it's where the gets her mail; the singer-songwriter has been living quietly in New Orleans for a little over a year. This past fall, she celebrated her 60th birthday with the Lost Bayou Ramblers, at d.b.a.


    The Other Side of Desire is also the title of Jones' first album of original material in more than ten years. Written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, according to press materials, it was crafted with producers Mark Howard and John Porter, whose resumes are heavy with names like Roxy Music, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and the Smiths. (Porter, who also lived in New Orleans for a time, can count locals like the Honey Island Swamp Band, Jon Cleary and Tommy Malone on his personal roster as well.)


    The album is pure Jones: warm and whimsical, with a keen storyteller's touch. This time around, it's infused with the sounds of New Orleans. Strains of swamp-pop, honky tonk and Cajun waltzes wind through The Other Side of Desire which, the release said, could not have been written without the backdrop of New Orleans; its river, trains, barroom ghosts and sudden bands all playing the same song.

    Insides

    Like many others, Ghostly became enamored with Fort Romeau's idea of slow
    listening, the concept of enriching relationships with music through careful
    attention and focus. His understated take on deep, groove-friendly house started
    pushing this practice three years ago, when the producer's debut LP, Kingdoms,
    appeared via 100% Silk. The native Londoner, born Mike Greene, has evolved
    considerably since then, finessing his sound over the course of three breezy 12s,
    one EP, and lengthy DJ sets at some of the best clubs in Europe-not the least of
    which were Berlin's famed Panorama Bar, London hotspot Plastic People, and
    Robert Johnson in Frankfurt. Those years Greene spent immersed in his craft and
    new inspirations have generously informed the eight stunning productions which
    comprise Insides, Fort Romeau's long-awaited sophomore album.


    Playing in those clubs definitely had an affect on how I approach composition and
    pacing, Greene shares. I want to allow things to breathe and develop gradually
    over longer track lengths, rather than cram everything into four or five minutes. His
    patient methods are a central component to the billowy house music on Insides,
    though this isn't an indulgent album of gratuitous buildups and tiresome
    breakdowns. Each production is pointed and purposeful, as the artist crafts every
    second of analog electronics with rich detail, nuance, and refinement.


    Throughout Insides, Fort Romeau guides us down misty corridors lined with supple
    synth pads, quietly thumping kicks, and elastic low-end sequences reinforced by an
    emotive confidence. Thick dancefloor cuts like All I Want and Folle are built on
    such satisfying elements-sounds so full-bodied, you'd swear they're knocking
    against your bones. This, too, is by design. I wanted to make sure all the songs
    have a tangible quality, says Greene of his LP's physicality, to make texture and
    grain become as important a part of the vocabulary as timbre and pitch. This was
    accomplished with an arsenal of machines, including his Moog Voyager, Yamaha
    DX7, Roland Juno-6, and Korg 770, a vintage synth he describes as having so much
    presence and vitality, it almost feels like it's alive. Equally important to the weighty
    presence of his music is meticulous post-production. The record was mixed on an
    analog desk and mastered to tape, Fort Romeau elaborates. These processes are
    as much a part of the sound as the synths and sample sources themselves.


    There is also a deep stylistic eclecticism to Insides, and coming from Greene, this
    was galvanized by deep cuts he discovered while digging to find music for his
    extensive DJ sets. Old kosmiche, disco, and early electronic records are among the
    strongest influences, and Fort Romeau used them as an impetus for creation. It's
    those strange and wonderful tracks that you find on the b-side of an old record that
    sparked my desire to make something new, he shares, but it's very important for
    me never to feel like I'm making a pastiche. Indeed, the sleek expanse of Lately
    and the title track's jacking grooves take cues from buoyantly cosmic dance music.
    And yet it's the personality of a young artist coming into his own that makes Insides
    such a graceful collection of house music, one that only further enriches the soul
    over time.

    Me Moan

    Let's get a few facts straight right off the bat. The name is Daughn
    Gibson - rhymes with Jaughn, or Raughn. He was born in Nazareth, PA,
    and currently resides in the sleepy college town of Carlisle, PA, where
    he frequents local watering holes like The Cave and Alibis. He's 6'5,
    200 pounds, and has a head of thick, jet-black hair thicker. He played
    drums in Pearls & Brass. Daughn was a trucker, sure, but he's also
    packed boxes in an un-air conditioned warehouse, climbed up commercial
    broadcast towers with untested levels of radiation, worked at an adult
    bookstore, done sound at dive bars and collected unemployment checks.
    Daughn's been around.


    Daughn Gibson first entered the daydreams of the general public in
    2012 with his acclaimed debut, All Hell. Armed with modern technology
    and a pile of thrift-store records, Daughn shook the ghosts out of scratchy
    Christian folk records and baptized them as fierce Americana with his
    booming baritone voice. His songs are as frequently tender as they are
    prurient, as hopeful as they are brimming with despair. He treats the
    past with respectful reverence while still being able to appreciate esoteric
    modern-day electronic music from across the pond. The only real starting
    point for the music of Daughn Gibson is Daughn Gibson.
    It's on Daughn's second album and Sub Pop debut, Me Moan, that he
    truly reveals himself to the world. If All Hell was a gritty black-and-white
    movie, Me Moan is a widescreen IMAX 3D extravaganza. While the roots
    of All Hell's sample-based music remain, these songs are performed
    live, lushly detailed and richly orchestrated.


    Live drums, guitars (by John Baizley of Baroness and Jim Elkington of Brokeback), pedal steel, horns,
    house strings, bagpipes and organs appear on this record, but never
    does it feel over-stuffed - every instrument or melody is perfectly in place.
    Me Moan isn't just Daughn Gibson's primal scream, it's a skirmish
    through the full spectrum of emotion, unfiltered and impassioned.
    Like Cormac McCarthy or Robert Altman, Daughn Gibson is a uniquely
    American artist who throws his soul into his work, free of compromise,
    possessed by unique vision and so damn intense that he constantly
    teeters on spontaneous combustion. It's not out of line to consider Me
    Moan as his Blood Meridian; his Nashville. All that's left is for you to let
    Daughn in.

    Oceana

    Recognized by many as the premiere rock keyboardist of his generation, Derek Sherinian has performed for millions via Black Country Communion (of which he is a current member alongside Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, Joe Bonamassa), Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Buddy Miles and as an off-stage performer accompanying KISS. He also enjoyed tenures with Billy Idol, Yngwie Malmsteen and many others.


    Favoring a guitar heavy rock based approach to fusion ala one of his musical heroes Jeff Beck, his newest release, Oceana once again displays the power and energy Sherinian creates in the studio, setting him apart from most jazz fusion ensembles in the process. He displays the rare combination of being a musical chameleon, while maintaining his signature style in no matter what genre he is playing in. With Oceana, the stage is set for Sherinians inspiration to be propelled in to the mainstream.


    Sherinian has carved out a niche for himself in the progressive metal scene. He has attracted the best players on Earth to his solo album sessions, some of whom include luminaries Al DiMeola, Steve Lukather, Yngwie Malmsteen, Slash, John Petrucci, John Sykes and Zakk Wylde. With Oceana, again an assemblage of some of the most talented players to ever strap on a guitar join Sherinian in the studio.


    Steve Lukather once again collaborated with the keyboardist for the tracks Mulholland, Euphoria and Seven Sins. Former Planet X guitarist and fusion legend Tony MacAlpine laid down performances for Five Elements and Mercury 7. The one and only Steve Stevens is featured on Ghost Runner and the title track Oceana. Black Country Communion band mate Joe Bonamassa makes an appearance as well on I Heard That, while Doug Aldrich performs on El Camino Diablo. Simon Phillips performs all drums on Oceana, while Jimmy Johnson laid down the bass on all tracks outside of Ghost Runner and the title track which features Tony Franklin.


    The 1970s saw the creation of keyboard legends, when titans including Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman and Jon Lord were superstars. It was a time when talent on the keys was not only appreciated, but celebrated in popular music. With Oceana, perhaps a rebirth is upon the precipice of change for the Santa Cruz-raised, Berklee School of Music educated Sherinian to witness a new dawn where keyboardists once again are heroes. Inevitably, it is only a matter of time before Sherinian is recognized as the premiere rock keyboardist of this generation.

    Idle Hands


    Mixed & Mastered By Peter Rutcho At Damage Studios (THE GHOST INSIDE, BURY YOUR DEAD, VANNA)


    "Energy-fueled epic-core with lots of aggression, a healthy blend of raw shouts and low end growls and foot stomping hooks." - Kerrang!


    VICTORY RECORDS is proud to release Idle Hands, the debut album from dynamic South Wales, UK metal/hardcore outfit, CONTINENTS. Formed in 2010, CONTINENTS quickly established themselves within the ever-growing UK music scene through their intense music and stage presence. They are five self-proclaimed "lads with a party attitude who love getting groups of people into a room who share their passion for music." Live, this UK bunch throws a blistering barrage of energy at the crowd which is evident in their first music video, "Trials"; which received over 10,000 views on YouTube, in just the first few days. Thanks to "Trials", in November 2011 the band was voted as a favorite YouTube UK Metal Act and was featured on the YouTube home page.


    "We've always tried to put our own passion for our music before external influence, the most important thing for us is that we enjoy the music we play, and if other people enjoy it too then that's awesome," said vocalist, Phil Cross. "We like to mix elements of our favorite styles and influences, and then put our own perspective on things to see where it takes us." CONTINENTS has created their heaviest music to date on Idle Hands all while incorporating a fresh take on modern hardcore. Expect 2013 to start off with a bang as CONTINENTS becomes a serious force to be reckoned with.

    The Apothic Gloom

    SKELETONWITCH are "a band that makes metal so brilliant, vital and special" (Metal Hammer). Relinquishing genre-boundaries with their mixture of blackened thrash, death and heavy metal, the band are a force to be reckoned with as they have incessantly spent the past ten years touring across the world while simultaneously releasing the most zealous, catchy riffs and precisely pummeling rhythms across five full-length releases with Prosthetic Records, including their most recent 2013 effort "Serpents Unleashed", which saw the band land at their highest chart position, #62 of Billboard's Top 200.


    SKELETONWITCH have cemented the group's reputation as one of metal's most important acts landing themselves on high visibility tours with the likes of Danzig, Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest, Arch Enemy, Children of Bodom, Cannibal Corpse, Amon Amarth, Ghost B.C., and The Black Dahlia Murder and extensive headlining jaunts, including a 63 shows in 65 days run.


    The band present a reenergized power with the new year as they announce new vocalist Adam Clemans (Wolvhammer) to the current line-up consisting of Evan Linger (bass), Dustin Boltjes (drums) and founding members Scott Hedrick and Nate Garnette on guitars. SKELETONWITCH debuted the first new material from their recording session at Baltimore, MD's Developing Nations with Kevin Bernsten (Noisem, Mutilation Rites) with the 7 single "Well of Despair" which they debuted live while being featured on this year's Decibel Magazine tour alongside Abbath, High on Fire and Tribulation. The single will be featured on their forthcoming EP, "The Apothic Gloom".


    Scheduled for release via Prosthetic, "The Apothic Gloom" showcases four tracks spanning just under 20 minutes of what Noisey hails as a "cold blast of icy, melodic black metal" with "plenty of shredding". #WorshipTheWitch

    Strange Weather

    Anna 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.'
