Video: Peter Silberman – Ahimsa

With his much-anticipated solo album Impermanence out now via Transgressive Records and ANTI-, Peter Silberman has just announced news of a number of UK and European shows in April to support the release.

Silberman has also shared the video for Ahimsa, the penultimate track on Impermanence. He says of the video, “In these strange days, it feels like the most far-fetched scenarios and disastrous outcomes have become entirely plausible. This video, assembled from two sets of archival footage, was made to express this fear-fatigue that’s set in, the exhaustion from reckoning with so many terrifying possibilities.”

Impermanence is out now on Anti Records.

The New Pornographers – This Is The World Of The Theater

Whiteout Conditions, the new full-length record from critically acclaimed supergroup The New Pornographers, is due via Caroline and the band’s own imprint, Collected Works.

Of writing the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”

Previously they shared the album’s first single, High Ticket Attractions, via an interactive lyric video. Now they have shared another song from the album, This Is the World of the Theater, with Neko Case on lead vocals.

Whiteout Conditions is out April 7 on Collected Works Records. Pre-order here.

Tei Shi – How Far

Tei Shi has announced her forthcoming debut record, Crawl Space, will be released on March 31 via Downtown Records / Interscope.

Mixing indie pop, electronic and R&B influences, Crawl Space is an assertive and masterful debut that sounds like little else out there. On this intimate record, Tei Shi brings a remarkable clarity to the act of being vulnerable, inviting her listener to bear witness to her innermost emotions.

Speaking about her stunning new song How Far, Valerie Teichier aka Tei Shi, notes, “How Far is a song about the line towed by two people between love and destruction. It talks about the process of attempting to change one another in a relationship, and the final desperate point–the last attempt–before acceptance.”

Tei Shi‘s debut LP Crawl Space is out March 31 on Downtown/Interscope. Watch the recently released video for Keep Running here.

Video: Gabriella Cohen – Beaches

Australia’s Gabriella Cohen and co. stop traffic again in her new video for Beaches – an Australian interpretation of driving around the Grand Canyon in a convertible. The video comes just in time for the announcement of her first full North American tour alongside Foxygen.

Cohen’s first solo full-length Full Closure And No Details is being reissued by Captured Tracks on March 3. The debut is the product of ten days and two microphones. Co-produced alongside close friend, bandmate, and engineer Kate ‘Babyshakes’ Dillon, the record is the result of what Cohen describes as the “ceremony” of reflecting on a relationship.

The album’s raw, personal side could be traced back to its place of birth at Dillon’s parents’ place in the country, or to the Brisbane streets the songs were composed in. The songs are soaked in the kind of aching nostalgia that is tinged with equal measures of sadness and triumph.

Full Closure And No Details is out March 3 on Captured Tracks. Pre-order here.
