I wish people paid more attention to things.
You may not want them anymore.
But you could pass them on.
That’s my role.
I intercept the things society tries to throw away.

889614817-1Altin Village & Mine have finally released Urban Homes’ debut Centres. And that’s quite significant, not only because it’s been long awaited since the 2011 demo, but also because this project seems like the natural companion of PTTRNS, Airpeople and the likes, breaking new grounds, charting new lands. It’s music with movement, progression and reflection. But these are not confused or scared people, they embrace whatever human activity brings about and create a sound for that, not for your own personal sake, but in a much broader sense. It’s a contemporary soundtrack that holds both past and present.

And it’s one of the best releases of ’13.

Vimeo video clip for Ayran Gifbek Mersi*) 6:10

*) If you wonder what the song title means, here’s my guess: Ayran is Turkish yoghurt, gifbek is Dutch for poisonous hemlock, and mersi is latin for being drowned or overwhelmed. So that should make it pretty clear.

The Kafka recording went fantastic and is definitely the best any of our bands have ever sounded. The record will be mixed and mastered by the end of January. The 12″ will be released by our friends at I.Corrupt and Replenish Records plus one more label TBA and Skeletal Lightning will be doing the tape version.
