Washed Out shares Amtrac remix of “Hide,” a standout from Purple Noon

Washed Out’s “Hide,” a standout from Purple Noon, his acclaimed album of 2020, has been remixed by producer/DJ Amtrac, and is available now on all DSPs from Sub Pop.
Washed Out’s Ernest Greene says of the remix, “I’ve been a fan of Amtrac’s music for a long time as I’ve been DJing his music for years. I think his songs transcend a lot of other more obvious club music as at their core they are very emotionally resonant. I had a feeling he would reinvent “Hide” in this same way. He took a very insular and personal song and translated it into something that feels much more anthem-like - that is best shared by a large group of people on a dance floor. I can’t wait to play it at my next DJ gig…”
The anthemic new rework follows the remix of Purple Noon’s lead single “Too Late” by Puerto Rico’s Buscabulla, released earlier this summer.
Washed Out’s previously announced headline tour for 2022, will see Greene and longtime band members Dylan Lee and Cameron Gardener, take their incredible live show on the road beginning Monday, January 10th, 2022 in Asheville, NC at the Orange Peel runs through Saturday, February 12th, 2022, closing with a hometown show in Atlanta, GA at the Eastern.

Watch the METZ Live at the Opera House Concert Film in its entirety + Tour Dates

Long considered one of the planet’s most bombastic live acts and foremost purveyors of abrasive melodicism, METZ has spent the majority of their 11-year tenure crisscrossing the globe and bringing their unparalleled energy directly to the people. Determined to connect with their fans and to find a way within the confines of the pandemic to create a live experience as dynamic as their most recent full length, Atlas Vending, METZ took to the stage in October 2020 at the Opera House in Toronto to livestream a performance of Atlas Vending in its entirety. Directed by the band’s longtime video collaborator Scott Cudmore, you can now watch this stunning performance on YouTube. Click here to watch. 

The film is a reminder of METZ’s intense, life-affirming performances, which they are bringing back to the stages of North America this November and December with longtime friends and equally excellent bands, Preoccupations and FACS. The tour begins November 18th in Phoenix and will close with METZ headlining a two-night stand in Toronto at Lee’s Palace on December 17th-18th. The band will return to Europe and the UK in the spring of 2022. 

Live at the Opera House was recorded by Graham Walsh, mixed by Seth Manchester and is available now on all digital service providers. The limited-edition 1,000-piece pressing on tricolor (Black/White/Oxblood) vinyl is practically sold out. If you miss the chance to buy this handsome, collectible LP online, you can and should (FINALLY) go see METZ at one of their upcoming shows where they will have a limited number of these Live at the Opera House LPs for sale.

Shabazz Palaces announces headlining European tour dates for 2022

Shabazz Palaces is announcing new, headlining European tour dates for 2022 which begin March 18th in Brighton, UK at Patterns and currently end on April 30th in Lille, FR at L’Aeronef. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 29th at 10 am (local).
Preceding the European tour in 2021, Shabazz Palaces has a few U.S. shows including October 30th in Austin, TX at Stubbs (with Thundercat), and Saturday, November 6th in Springfield, MO at Outland Ballroom.
Shabazz Palaces is currently working on the follow-up to the internationally acclaimed The Don of Diamond Dreamswhich is available now worldwide from Sub PopThe New Yorker says of the album, “[Shabazz Palaces’] spontaneity and irreverence for rap conventions feel particularly urgent; these experiments are malleable and resistant to form at a time when declarative statements on the current era seem futile. Instead, the group continues bludgeoning musical complacency with songs as equivocal as inkblot tests.” Uncut continues, ”The Don of Diamond Dreams finds Butler’s effects-treated voice rippling through a prism of mutated funk and R&B that feels simultaneously sumptuous and deeply unconventional (8/10).”
Earlier this year, Shabazz Palaces’ self-released the single and official video for “20 Gear Science”, which Stereogum noted for its “spacy, synthy” sound. Even more recently, he celebrated the 10th anniversary of his landmark album Black Up. The AV Club says of the album, “The record still shifts uncomfortably in and out of view, pulses of static coalescing into hooks that vaporize after one incantation.” Meanwhile,  Pitchfork offered this, “From great mystery exploded an album of impossible vision.”
