I’m starting 2014 with two support gigs:
Both of these will feature some solo singing and spoken word. As long as my throat infection’s cleared up, that is. If not, I’ll do a bit of magic.
L. Pierre’s last thing for 2013 was a Disney mix for Dazed Digital:
L. Pierre is now in hibernation.
This September sees the release of a new L. Pierre EP, Surface Noise. As it says on the back cover: “In these recordings, L. Pierre pays an affectionate tribute to the wear and tear of overplayed vinyl; the hiss, scratch and pop of records long loved but worn down. It’s the sound of survival, the echoes of a life lived well; moth eaten music of sadness and resilience, of beauty and backbone.” It will be available as a (very cool and retro) 10” vinyl (with free download) and download only. You can pre-order it HERE and listen to the lead track below.
There’s a little interview about the EP and other things HERE at the No Ripcord site.
This will be the last L. Pierre release for a while, and quite possibly forever. Never say never though, eh?
A new album by L. Pierre is now available for free! Perhaps not an album in the strictest sense – it consists of eight (theoretically never-ending) loops with video and was made in Vine. For best results, search for LPierreMusic in the Vine app on your phone/device to find the exclusive L. Pierre profile page and listen from there, preferably with earphones. Alternatively, you can hear it on the new L. Pierre Twitter profile page (HERE), and there’s a more desktop-friendly Tumblr version too, which can be found HERE. But as I say, Vine is best – the video loops were created in Vine and the results are smoother and more precise.
More L. Pierre news soon.
JD Twitch of Glasgow’s premier party duo Optimo has (expertly) remixed Bill Wells & Me’s Glasgow Jubilee! You’ll find it on The Underground Sound Of Glasgow Mix CD currently available from the Glasgow Underground label. It was also on the 12” sampler, all of which you can hear below (we’re track 2). Enjoy!
