Weird weekend music: Björk x TRI▼ANGLE Records; Nicolas Jaar variations
June 26, 2015 7:19 PM   Subscribe

Björk has been getting involved with TRI▼ANGLE Records a good bit, after The Haxan Cloak, a notable inclusion on the Tri Angle roster, was involved making Vulnicura, as well as producing a new remix. Back in February, Björk represented Tri Angle on Rinse FM with Holy Other and Celestial Trax, and then in May, she dropped in on Tri Angle's 5th Anniversary/Birthday Party to mix for an hour, and uploaded that set to Soundcloud (if you prefer YouTube, someone uploaded the set in four parts: 1, 2, 3, 4 - set to repeating video recorded from the show). If you'd like some more weirdness for your weekend, Nicolas Jaar recently shared a new, non-syncing version of Pomegranates (previously) as a free download linked through Facebook and Twitter, reposted by Factmag, where you can read some of the extensive liner notes before downloading the file.

Ooh. Have not been up on Björk, but looks like a promising direction for her. I thought some of her previous collaborations with electronic producers seemed a little novelty or less inspired at times, but Tri Angle seems to compliment her style and voice well- i.e. dramatic, dark almost to the point of creepy, but with some warm organic feel too.

In terms of selection I'm reminded of her remix album Bastards, which I'd thoroughly recommend.

Worth mentioning her other Vulnicura collaborator, Arca, who is responsible for one of the better albums of last year.

(also tangent: haxan cloak has been working with the noisy guys of HEALTH... you can kind of tell based on the first few seconds of their new single "new coke"... that sub-bass! a++!)

Holy Other was the opening act for part of Amon Tobin's US Tour last year, it's awesome to hear his new work and awesome to hear Bjork talking about it.
