Underworld;
Oblivion with Bells

Out October 2007

When Underworld released their last album "A Hundred Days off " no one thought it would be nearly 2000 days until the next one arrived. It hasn't been a case of lazing around in the Essex countryside though as the last 5 years have thrown up the 1992-2002 anthology album, two major film scores (Anthony Mingellas’ "Breaking and Entering" and Danny Boyles’ 2007 "Sunshine"), a self-published typographic journal "In The Belly of Saint Paul", a series of pioneering digital-only releases, internet-radio broadcasts, a groundbreaking live web-tv broadcast and gig in partnership with Apple and Frankfurts’ techno giants Cocoon and countless gigs around the world.

During all of this action Rick and Karl, with the aid of trusty laptops, a couple of home studios, Abbey Roads’ legendary facilities and a Pig Shed, have been carefully developing ideas for the new album "Oblivion with Bells", an album that was finally completed in a flurry of activity and excitement in spring 2007.

True to form Underworld tread their own path through modern electronic music tipping a nod to current sounds, styles and production techniques but never afraid to let their song writing and musicianship shine out in this digital world. "Oblivion with Bells" draws heavily on Rick and Karls’ vast array of musical influences (Nick Drake, Def Mix, Ricardo Villalobos, Can, James Holden, Eno) and experiences performing worldwide to create a truly unique Underworld journey. The album kicks off like Saturday night with Sven Väth, Simian Mobile Disco and Frankie Knuckles all fighting to get on the decks, then takes you over the flat fields of rural Essex, through Kings Cross with its olympic dreams and piss stained alleys, ending blissed out in a hidden cove in Ibiza. Epic techno nestles next to frail acoustics, beatific prose next to sharp urban observation, amazing sound texturing mixed with mobile phone recordings, rarely has the Underworld palette been so rich.


Ok so who think Coachella 2008 now sounds very likely. Raise your silly glow sticked hands people.

I'm stoked about the new CD but it's not released until Oct (according to their website) - the LA show is in Sep, would like to have heard at least some to the new material before the show so I could be a little familiar with it. Their website said they would "showcase their new album" - I hope that means they will at least play some of their classics! Either way I feel lucky to have a ticket and look forward to a great night, even if it's at the Bowl.

This is the festival I was talking about.

http://www.91x.com/

The Southern Comfort Music Experience (SCMX) is taking over San Diego this September with a FREE two day music festival incorporating food, music, and most importantly, creating legendary nights with friends. SCMX kicked off its summer tour in Atlanta and at Philadelphia's Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing. The third stop on the SoCo Music Experience tour will hit San Diego September 9-10 in the East Village at 7th and Market. SCMX is a 21+ event which will last from 3PM-Midnight on Saturday September 9th and 1PM-10PM on Sunday September 10th. scmx.htFor 2 days the East Village lot at 7th and Market will be transformed into a rocking festival filled with great music, great food and great spirits. The mainstage will mix in some New Orleans spice with mainstream music including such bands as The Roots, Flogging Molly, Mudhoney, Cowboy Mouth, Spank Rock, and Family Force 5. Apart from the superstar lineup, SoCo Music Experience will boast the all new SoCo Lime®-Light Lounge, Southern Comfort Hurricane® trailers and bars, and the best local grub.



Haven't heard of the other bands, but Flogging Molly, Spank Rock, Mudhoney and The Roots for free? Can't pass it up

Dont say that cause then they play the same day and conflict. We would all kill Paul Tollett for that one.

That conflict would never happen anyways, unless you let the same people who do the ACL festival do Coachella :lool

Underworld at Coachella 2008 would be heeeeyuuuuge. I've been to 3 Coachellas and I do believe the Underworld show was the nicest moment I had at any of them, with the possible exception of Radiohead.

Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but their new single "Crocodile" is up on their myspace page. It's pretty sweet. I'm super excited for the new album & their performance in Central Park.

For the few (or many?) Darren Emerson fans, the july issue of DJ Magazine in UK comes with a Darren Emerson mix. You can find it here (http://www.juno.co.uk/products/275374-01.htm)

If his forthcoming solo album is like that, what a waste.

I hate how they sell UK magazines over here for 4 times the price. Bastards.

darrren emerson has been a bit disappointing after his split with underworld.
