Mike Patton / Ictus Ensemble – Laborintus II

23rd Apr 12 (Mon) Leave a comment

Update 5/17/12 for youtube excerpt below…

Mike Patton & the Ictus Ensemble is putting out Laborintus II in July 3, 2012, on Ipecac Recordings.  The cover art is below…

This is presumably taken from live recordings from Holland Fest 2010.  More news as it’s available.

Also, Mike Patton-related, if you missed the Record Store Day 2012 3-LP boxset from Tomahawk called eponymous-to-anonymous over the weekend, there are allegedly 5,000 copies floating around per Ipecac news; so you may have decent luck finding it this week at your local indie stores (or eBay).  Tomahawk’s 4th album is due out late Summer/early Fall 2012.

new music from Nellie McKay & My Brightest Diamond

Jazzy, piano-pop songstress Nellie McKay just got done with a stint of tour dates for her death-row musical review I Want To Live! (double Oregon show review here).

Now she’s off with a new show entitled SILENT SPRING – It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature, a tribute to trailblazing environmentalist, Rachel Carson (Nellie made up as Rachel to the right).

She is currently amidst her Silent Spring residency at Feinstein’s in NYC.  The show runs March 20 to 31, 2012.  No word on if Silent Spring will make it out of NYC for a tour, but this seems similar to the path that I Want To Live! took… so, who knows, maybe we’ll see Silent Spring out West in late 2012/early 2013?

Listen to Nellie’s version of the song “Rio de Lua (Moon River)” below:

Shara Worden / My Brightest Diamond has recorded a guitar-based version of “I Have Never Loved Someone” for a limited release (1000 hand-numbered copies) as a 7″ through Holland-based Nowhere Fast Records.  For the B-side, Shara has sung Leonard Cohen’sBird On A Wire” with guitar accompaniment by Marc Ribot.  The album is set for release on Record Store Day (21 April 2012), and it will be available in Europe, the UK and the US markets.
