Video: A Day With Nick Zammuto

This video was posted earlier this month in Nick Zammuto’s Blog. It is a short documentary by Matt Day, portraying a day in Zammuto’s life. I enjoyed it a lot, not only because it shows his envy-worthy lifestyle, but because we can see his process of songwriting/recording. Those familiar with the sounds of The Books and Zammuto will find this interesting because he unveils many of his weird musical techniques (that are often thought to be electronic, but really are analogue… or a weird hybrid between the two).

Update: Read about The Books breaking up. :(

Daniel Rossen announces solo EP

Daniel Rossen, from Grizzly Bear and Department Of Eagles, has announced the release of an EP titled Silent Hour/Golden Mile. It will be out the 20th of March via Warp.

So far, Rossen has released one of the EP’s tracks, Saint Nothing. It’s great, I love it, but if you expect to hear Grizzly Bear here, you might get disappointed. While you can hear some similarities, Daniel Rossen has created something very different. Listen below.

March will be a good month, first Andrew Bird’s new album is announced and now this.

J. Tillman (as Father John Misty) announces new solo album

Joshua Tillman, Fleet Foxes’ drummer and (amazingly underrated) solo artist announced the release of a new album via Sub Pop. Despite the fact that he has already released seven solo albums under his actual name, this time he chose to use the moniker of Father John Misty.

The album will be titled Fear Fun, according to The Agency Group site, where the following statement appeared:

“During the summer of 2011, Joshua Tillman, left Seattle to live in his van for two months, writing a novel under the influence of fungi and suddenly began to write songs under the name of Father John Misty, “Fear Fun” was recorded in Los Angeles with Jonathan Wilson and mixed by Phil Ek in Seattle. “Fear Fun” will be launched on May 1, 2012 on Sub Pop.”

So far, only one of this project’s songs is out, I Would Love You was uploaded to Misty’s Tumblr about a week ago.

Check out Tillman’s previous solo work.

Track: Grizzly Bear – Boy From School

I usually try to post about new music, but I recently stumbled upon this and I couldn’t resist. Grizzly Bear covered Hot Chip’s Boy From School in a Triple J Radio session. Nothing like one of my favourite bands playing one of the songs I used to hear obsessively some years ago. Enjoy.
