i think i better follow you around

Alfredo & Edeath, are a couple of music lovers who met later in life but grew up loving almost the same bands and hating others but always listening to music, old and new, and apart from collecting vinyl and books and going to see every good band coming to town, (or a few miles away), got together and created "I think i better follow you around", a website/music blog, where they share all the music they like and help promote upcoming concerts, local bands from San Diego and Tijuana and amazing artists from around the world. I think I better follow you around is an independent project.

Sharon Van Etten – “Never Gonna Change”

Sharon Van Etten has shared a new song, “Never Gonna Change”.

The song is one of two new tracks added to the deluxe version of Sharon Van Etten new re-release of her album “We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong”, out November 11th via Jagjaguwar.

Van Etten said this about the song: “It’s about managing depression and anxiety in the midst of isolation. Coping with recurring fears throughout adulthood, acknowledging that flaws, fears and triggers can’t be overcome, they are a constant part of one’s identity to learn to be at peace with.”

Andy Bell – “I Am A Strange Loop”

Andy Bell has shared the video for the track, “The Sky Without You” (David Holmes Radical Mycology Remix), off his new EP “I Am A Strange Loop” out now via Sonic Cathedral.

TRACKLIST:
1. The Sky Without You (David Holmes Radical Mycology Remix)
2. It Gets Easier (Maps Remix)
3. Something Like Love (Richard Norris Remix)
4. Way Of The World (bdrmm Remix)
5. World Of Echo (A Place To Bury Strangers Remix)
6. Sidewinder (Claude Cooper Remix)
7. Something Like Love (Richard Norris Remix – Instrumental)
8. Sidewinder (Claude Cooper Remix – Instrumental)

The video for the song was directed by Jean de Oliveira.

Andy Bell shared this about the EP: “It was so great to see what came back when I gave these tracks from ‘Flicker’ to various comrades, friends and heroes to play with.

David Holmes requested the opening track as he had formed a bit of a connection with it, and what he came up with turns the song from an introductory taster, into a hallucinogenic beast, taking pride of place here as the opening track but in a whole different way to how ‘Flicker’ opens.

James Chapman AKA Maps has taken ‘It Gets Easier’ to a bigger, brighter and shinier place, he’s given quite a downbeat track a euphoric and epic sheen. James is an absolute master of electronic production and he’s taken the same care and attention over this remix as he does with his own wonderful music.

I couldn’t put Richard Norris’s lovely widescreen take on ‘Something Like Love’ better than the man himself – in his own words he found the “hitherto undiscovered sweet spot between ‘Roscoe’ and ‘Outdoor Miner’” and he tapped into the melancholy euphoria at the core of the song.

Jordan Smith from bdrmm’s very first remix blows my mind every time I play it. It is as constantly inventive, infectious and frankly ace as the band he plays in. This is a remix for headphones, there are so many great moments to love, all held together by a bassline worthy of Jah Wobble (by way of Andrew Weatherall). If this is Jordan’s first remix imagine what he’ll be coming up with in years to come. Astonishing!

A Place to Bury Strangers take no prisoners on their mix of ‘World Of Echo’ which is pure psych-punk adrenaline. The song is almost unrecognisable. There are glimpses of the original, but more than anything it’s an incredible, if slightly unhinged, APTBS track which I enjoy very much indeed.

Claude Cooper takers ‘Sidewinder’ to a ’60s-themed house party and gives it a big tequila shot and some magic mushrooms, Which takes us back to where we started with David Holmes’ radical mycology!

Thanks to all of the above for their incredible work on giving these songs from ‘Flicker’ a new technicolour life”.

Luz Futuro – “Condena”

Luz Futuro has shared a new song, “Condena”.

The video for the song was directed by Simarro Lozano.

Daniel Benavides (Luz Futuro) shared this about the release: “With this song I would like to thank the people that have been with me when I needed them, my family and myself. It’s been a long process to have the courage to evolve emotionally and fight mentally to continue enjoying life. What a great joy it is to be able to expel what you think via music, to share it and witness how you can close a cycle. This song is very direct and it doesn’t create scenarios but unlike everything else, innuendos and metaphors in music can make it feel yours and feel like it’s been a passage in your own life. That is the intention. Cheers, believe in yourselves and have the courage the look in the mirror”.

Nation Of Language – “From The Hill”

Nation Of Language have shared a new 7″, “From The Hill”.

The video for the song was directed and edited by John Mackay.

Ian Devaney shared this: “‘From The Hill’ is a song reflecting on times when friendships fall apart over romantic entanglement, accompanied by the sensation that you’re somehow watching it happen from above with a more zoomed-out perspective. It can feel at times like certain parts of life are a story with which you’re just following along the characters enter, they play their role, and then they leave. Often it’ll feel sudden and catch you off guard, and other times you’re able to see that it’s the only way things could have played out despite what you may have wanted. For us, we’re in a moment right now where it feels good to get this out into the world. It’s one that didn’t really feel like it fit the vibe of A Way Forward, nor is it any real indication of where the next record is likely heading. When that situation arrives we like to use these 7” releases to step outside the larger framework that the albums provide and just release a track that we love, so this is us doing that once again.”

They just finished playing Austin City Limits and will now embark on an European and UK tour.

Stuart Staples shared this via a press release: “I stood in CDG, terminal two, talking to Claire on the cell phone. She was preparing to leave for Panama to start filming ‘Stars at Noon’. “And of course I need the song for the dance scene for the shoot,” she said.

“What dance scene? Is it in the script?” I replied.

“It’s in the new version of the script.”

“Ah, do I have the new version?..”. The line faded and I was left considering this, something that I expected to hit me in the months ahead but was suddenly all over me.

Stars At Noon had been in Claire’s thoughts for a long time, maybe even 10 years. We have had many conversations, I had a strong feeling for it and half a song somewhere in my mind.

I remembered the percussionist David Pattman, he played the bongos on the Trouble Every Day score 20 years before. He was happy to hear from me and we quickly arranged a recording session with Dan McKinna on double bass and Ross Stanley on Hammond organ. We had a blast those days, taking the ideas apart, putting them back together in many different forms.

At the centre was the song “Stars at Noon” – I was pushing it to be slower and slower, until it only just grooved, just on the cusp. Finding that tempo was key for me and the final version was recorded live in one take. Julian Seigel arrived later and played the beautiful tenor sax line.

I sent a rough mix to Claire in Panama, they were having production problems and she said the song cheered them all up – I heard all the crew singing along in the background”.

Danny Elfman – “Cruel Compensation” (The Locust REMIX)

The Locust have shared the video for the remix they did for the song “Cruel Compensation” from Danny Elfman’s latest album “Bigger. Messier.”.

The video for the song was directed and edited by frequent collaborator Dark Details.

Booby Bray of the Locust shared this: “The remix was the last recording Gabe Serbian did before he left this world, making this video release surreal, intense, and cathartic. When we were asked if we wanted to do a remix for Danny’s album it was one of the easiest things for the band to say yes to. After narrowing it down we finally decided on Cruel Compensation as it had a lot of parts we could put our own stamp on while reinforcing the intentions of the song, in an attempt to make the weird parts weirder and the brutal parts even more intense. We stretched a couple of parts, edited a couple of parts, cranked the bass, JP and I added some vocals, Kareem added lots of synth, I added some guitar towards the end, and Gabe redid all of the drums.During the pandemic and the previous US administration, Danny Elfman wrote the album Big Mess, which did a great job of reflecting and regurgitating the dystopian despair that was taking place. It was largely based on his guitar playing and was born out of what he called Chamber Punk. (So maybe our remix is Sci-fi Chamber Punk!)”

Fever Ray – “What They Call Us”

Fever Ray has shared a new song, “What They Call Us”, via Rabid / Mute.

The video for the song was directed by Martin Falck.

As much as this song is by Fever Ray, it was written and co-produced by Olof Dreijer. So it’s as close as a new the Knife song as we’re going to get and that is just fine.

There are no further details regarding a new album nor a tour or any other details. So just enjoy this song for the moment being.

Gabriels – “Angels and Queens”

Gabriels has released a new single, “Angels And Queens”, off their album “Angels And Queens – Part 1”.

The video for the song “Angels And Queens” was directed by Clarys Biagi.

Gabriels just finished up a short run of dates opening up for Harry Styles. Jacob Lusk (singer) said of the album: “I’m not gonna lie, I want to win every award, every Grammy! I want to perform with everybody and anybody”. Ari Balouzian (violinist, producer) said: “The success of this was actually getting to make something we’re so proud of”. Ryan Hope (keyboard, producer) said: “I got everything I needed from it; enjoying the process. I’m not looking for it to do any specific number or win a bunch of things”.

LCD Soundsystem – “New Body Rhumba”

LCD Soundsystem have shared a new single, “New Body Rhumba”, for the Noah Baumbach directed movie “White Noise”.

James Murphy is no stranger to working with Noah Baumbach since he has already scored 2 of his previous films, “Greenberg” and “While We’re Young”.

The movie will premiere in theaters on November 25th and begin streaming in Netflix on December 30th. The movie is an adaptation of the “unfilmable” book “White Noise” by Don Delillo, whose synopsis reads: “Jack Gladney is the creator and chairman of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill. This is the story of his absurd life – a life that is going well enough until a chemical spill from a rail car releases an Airborne Toxic Event, and Jack is forced to confront his biggest fear: his own mortality.” .

The movie stars Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, Jodie Turner-Smith, Don Cheadle. The original score was done by Danny Elfman.
