Young Guns Wrapping Up Work On New Album, Mixed by Damian Taylor


Via antiMusic, July 2014:

Young Guns have revealed that they are putting the finishing touches on their new album, recorded in Bath, England, with producer Steve Osborne (Joy Division, U2, Peter Gabriel) with mixing by Damian Taylor (Arcade Fire, Bjork, The Killers) at his recording studio, Golden Ratio, in Montreal.
“We’re beyond excited,” says lead singer Gustav Wood. “We’ve pushed ourselves hard to become better songwriters and challenged ourselves to be more creative. We’re extremely proud of the results and feel this our best work to date.”

The yet-untitled disc is due for an early 2015 release, with the band previewing select songs during their upcoming North American tour with fellow Brits You Me At Six.

“The past few years have been amazing for us,” says Wood. “We’ve gone from buying a van on the internet and booking our own shows to having a number one single on American radio. But this is only the beginning for this band. We’re excited to return to the States this fall with You Me at Six and begin the next chapter of our story.”

Dummy’s 21st Century Pop Music 2014 Compilation: with Tirzah “I’m Not Dancing” (Damian Taylor Remix)

Dummy_21st_Century_Pop_Compilation_Art_750_750_90_sDUMMY has released a new compilation, featuring a mixture of new, exclusive, and unreleased tracks from some of their favorite new artists.

via DUMMY:

We are very happy to announce that we are releasing a new compilation, ‘Dummy: 21st Century Pop Music 2014′, showcasing a mixture of new, exclusive, and unreleased tracks from some of their favourite new artists for 2014/15. Since launching as a website in 2009, we’ve dedicated ourselves to covering new and emerging music from across the globe under the banner of “21st Century Pop Music”.

While “pop music” is a pretty elastic phrase in 2014, we’ve always considered there to be an undercurrent of pop to everything that we write about, and that’s reflected in the tracklist of their our ever compilation … There’s also a global undercurrent to much of the music featured, something that’s always been central to our ethos. This is the first time that a lot of the tracks that make up the compilation have been given a physical release.

One of the never-before-heard tracks is the Damian Taylor remix of Greco-Roman pop singer Tirzah’s I’m Not Dancing (Dummy’s #2 song of 2013).
