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’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.

 

Some of what I do here at zero zero island. Contains some computers and Simmons drums. Mercifully short.
