last summer i recorded some roots-goth / 4AD cover songs. it was sisters, banshees, bauhaus, cocteaus, and then on to making demos for The Next Album of You Shriek Original Material. cue the vast gravity-well of escapist delight in reworking cherished classics, and it’s almost august again. i was going start on a new 2013 collection, different genre.

but the first EP of 4 songs doesn’t cover enough of my favorites from that era, and there’s no sense getting completely sidetracked from working on new songs anyway, so i’ve got another track to add to Hagiography I. watch this space, it’ll be out this week.

 

I’m almost finished mixing this one. agonizing over final details, which often occurs on the verge of starting over and completely nailing it in a matter of hours, therefore it may or may not sound exactly like this.

 

 

i’d been searching for motivation to make a new episode of this series for a couple of years. perfect opportunity: to collaborate with my friend and colleague Juan / Cellmod. music came as easily as ever, but this was the hardest one to edit. let’s say i’ve fallen out of practice planning shots. nevertheless, it turned into a fitting documentation of a great piece. i’m pleased. hope you are.

Cellmod’s post contains much more embellishment about the process and great time we had. as always, view the whole series on the spies website or subscribe in iTunes.

screens and shadowsAn honor: Dark Horizons Radio made us artist of the month for July, and more: they spun one of our earliest tracks, Grim on the annual Coffin Classics show today. Download the podcast— there’s some memories from Tones On Tail, Chameleons, Cyberaktif, Xymox. Thank you very much, Theresa & Edd.
Further on that topic, we just submitted an exclusive club mix of Ever and Anon for the 7th Dark Horizons Compilation CD. I’d bet on that track making the cut, along with a killer from Cellmod which carries a small/low performance contribution from yours truly.

Add Grave Concerns magazine to the growing list of insightful and incisive reviews written of Somewhere Between (Heaven & Sorrow). We’re also eagerly awaiting a paper copy of Dominion Magazine on import from across the pond that’s got us covered— issue #10.

Listen for an interview segment on an upcoming episode of the impossibly eclectic solipsisticNATION podcast (Subscribe/get schooled if you think you know electronic music. Respect.)

“Work” “continues” on a video (photo evidence directly above) for the Goodbye Berlin remix. No idea what the exact purpose of this project is, but as a proof-of-concept, archival footage is going a long way toward looking kind-of cool intercut with a small amount of The Band. This might be entertaining. And might be finished within a couple of weeks.

 

Woke to an unprecedented stream of hits on my alert for web posts about the band; Today is the day my brand new album showed up on all of the illegal torrent sites, mp3 0day forums, and http filedump hosts. There are a couple of different rips going around, both of which were done by people to whom I mailed a disc… (there’s a photo of it.) Maybe they were 2nd owners already. Whatever. Life is weird.

If you’re thinking about getting it for free, please also consider going to youshriek.com and paying for a disc, vinyl record or lossless download. Perhaps more importantly, spread the word, follow @youshriek on twitter, Facebook-Like fb.me/youshriek, and download Goodbye Berlin from youshriek.com in exchange for your email address so we can stay in touch. And offer legitimate free stuff once in a while.

Thank you for choosing to support the band. It means more than ever.

 

You were born, and you still exist. Good job, mate. There are some notes on this one. They’re on the album page. You could read them while you listen. That’s how I wrote them, last night. This gift isn’t quite as old as the last one. I hope it fits.

UPDATE: swiftly gone. that’s all for the gifts, since pre-sales are about to begin. working on that NOW.

 

Oh, what the hell… my birthday is some time this week or month or year, so I’m going to give the gift of a bunch of albums for the rest of February so you can give me the gift of downloading You Shriek songs. This EP is our first CD release from 1994. Info page really has info. Love you all. Enjoy the music, junkies.

UPDATE: party favors are gone. no more downloads of this EP, but you can listen.

Lara presented the 1st mockup of the Caesium Fallout EP 12″ sleeve. It’ll be brilliant.
