Hookworms today announce The Hum, a new studio album due for release on Tuesday, November 11. The Hum comes eighteen months after the band's debut album Pearl Mystic - a record that steadily went on to become one of 2013's most impactful breakout statements in the UK. Even more ferocious and uncompromising than its predecessor and yet more melodic and focused, The Hum further cements the band’s status as a vital force in British independent music.

The Hum will be available in vinyl, CD, and digital formats. There is also a limited pressing, deluxe edition of the album, featuring a die cut sleeve, 180g heavyweight transparent vinyl, a bonus 7” with new tracks and MP3 download. Pre-order The Hum via Weird World or iTunes.

Image: Real estate had to hear

Today, Real Estate release their new single “Had To Hear” as a limited-edition orange-colored vinyl 7”, in a run of just 500 copies. Coming backed with a b-side, a cover of The Nerves’ “Paper Dolls”, which was recorded in Chicago during the ‘Atlas’ recording session, the single is also available digitally via iTunes here. 

STREAM “PAPER DOLLS” HERE

Grab your copy of the limited edition release here: http://smarturl.it/HadToHear7

Alex Bleeker from Real Estate, on how The Nerves cover came into being:

"I'm drawn to the Nerves' intricate guitar work. We're interested in creating similar guitar parts for Real Estate, but the Nerves have a more aggressive sound so I thought it would be fun to wear that "musical costume" for a while. Blondie already did a pretty good job with "Hanging on the Telephone" so "Paper Dolls" seemed like the next logical choice."

AUSTRA SHARE VIDEO FOR 'DOEPFER'; 'HABITAT' EP OUT NOW

Austra | 08/05/14

Image: austra habitat

Following on from videos for EP tracks ‘Habitat’ and ‘Hulluu’, Austra are pleased to share a video for ‘Doepfer’. Directed by Adrienne Crossman and filmed in various locations around Toronto, the ‘Doepfer’ video premiered with THUMP today and can be viewed here.

Made up of footage taken in Toronto and Berlin, the video for Austra’s Doepfer acts as a disruptive visual meditation on the third released track from their Habitat EP. Accompanying the percussive-heavy dark synth soundtrack, the visual landscape of the video is made up of eerie footage of dark hallways, a dead mouse, silhouetted figures and mysterious textured surfaces, including a pixelated close up of billowing tin foil. As the music intensifies so do the visuals, with an increased frequency of anamorphic glitched disruption. Shot, edited and co-directed (with drummer Maya Postepski) by Adrienne Crossman, the video for Doepfer is a glance into the distorted intricacies of the band’s increasingly experimental musical nature.

Toronto-based Austra’s Habitat, a four-track EP, is out now on Domino. Order the limited-edition hand-numbered 12” here from Austra or download from iTunes.
