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.

*) 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.

sciencepinataSorry that I’m late with this… PTTRNS are from Cologne and have had a few songs out on a 7″, 2 splits and 2 casettes. Their sound is a musical alloy best described as DC post-hardcore, funkier and more fluent than for instance Q and Not U ever were, even on “Power”. And a bit out of time, akin Pit Er Pat. I heard the 3 tracks from People I Adore 7″… it was promising.. didn’t totally catch me, but nonetheless I found myself putting it on once in a while for a year or so.. and after putting PTTRNS into rotation again, I decided that they must’ve released something new by now. The band was doing small releases for 32 months before finally releasing Science Piñata this April. I’m still waiting to hear all of it, but whatever… I trust what I’ve heard.

Band says:

Long time no speak. But not for no reason: we just finished mixing our LP with the awesome Guido Lucas at Blubox Studios. It‘s really good. It‘s called SCIENCE PIÑATA and it will be out on Altin Village & Mine Records on April 1st. Recording was difficult and tiresome – Benjamin and Daniel both fell ill in the process so we had to get Sting to lay down some bass and that guy from Arctic Monkeys to play the remaining drum parts. However, Guido is a wizard and edited it all. You probably won‘t be able to tell the difference. Get into it!
