eleven:eleven - premeire! 

At approximately 21:35 GMT/4:35pm US Eastern today, our track eleven:eleven aired as part of the experimental radio event The Dark Outside. 

A 28+hours long continuous broadcast, we’ve been listening here and in France since its kickoff this morning at noon London time. Just great work by all. Proud to be a part of it. 

Thanks, guys!

 

Dark Outside - Broadcast April 4 

Super psyched to be part of this again this year.

London's live experimental radio event The Dark Outside is going ahead this weekend as an online broadcast - no track list, no archive, only live and once. Broadcast (link here) begins noon UK time this Saturday April 4.

Our piece, eleven:eleven, composed and recorded especially for it, included.

Dark Outside 2020 

Hey, we recorded a track for this year's Dark Outside - the London-based experimental radio event - which was meant to broadcast tomorrow at the UK's Aerial Festival. Needless to say, the festival itself has been postponed - until September. But we found out today that The Dark Outside will go on... inside and online next week. 

A 24 hour broadcast, which usually only can be heard within distance of their remote transmitter, it will instead be broadcast live online, without archive or track listings, still a true one-off. All works are original, created for the event, never heard before. 

Our track - eleven:eleven - will be among them. The link has not yet been published and we're not quite sure what day next week Dark Outside will go live, so watch this space for more info! 

Stay safe, everyone! 

- Summer & Michael & Sylvia

WFMU compilation album 

The band are incredibly honored to have been asked to contribute a track for a special compilation album curated by the great Carol Crow of WFMU. 

The album is being offered as a premium during the station's annual "Marathon" pledge drive, underway today! The new track is called Two Visions, composed by Michael and recorded by the band last month in NYC. 

We love Carol's amazing show and are longtime listeners and fans of WFMU - the greatest radio station in the world! Grateful and honored, indeed, to be a part of this.

New album 

The band are currently at work in NYC on their 9th album, tentatively entitled "Deux Anges". With Summer's tracks already recorded, Michael and Sylvia are busy completing basic tracks. It's a big record, quite possibly another double (the band's third double)! Expected release late spring, as ever on Slugg Records. Watch this space!

Happy Birthday, Summer! 

Summer's 40th birthday is today, Nov 13, 2019. We assembled and released this video at midnight to honor and remember her. It's "Flag Day (Summer Dream Version)" from our 2018 double-album, Sometimes In Dreams. A thousand divine angels watch, bless and keep you, little sweetheart. Love you forever.
