Wolfmother Remixes “New Moon Rising”

new-moon-rising_1The first single from Wolfmother‘s sophomore release Cosmic Egg, “New Moon Rising”, is a thumping, ripping slice of optimistic future-blues, complete with textbook flaming Wolfmother guitar and joyously bludgeoning drums. It’s a thrilling rush of goodtimes direct to the soul and one that’s sure to be inescapable very, very soon.

On remix duties, London’s Henry “Riton” concocts a pair of sophisticated rubs with quirky electronic melodies. Portland’s indie dance duo YACHT fix-up synth-y, mutant disco with punk-funk handclaps, and Gothenburg’s Fontän rework the single with psychedelic effects and stylings.

Knitting Factory Records Celebrates Fela Kuti with Deluxe Reissues

picture-21The forthcoming release of The Best of the Black President signifies the rebirth of Knitting Factory Records. Earlier this year, KFR licensed the 45-album Fela Kuti catalogue. Over the next 18 months, they will release remasters of all the Fela CDs in unique digi-packs with the original artwork, as well as certain releases on vinyl for the first time in North America.  KFR will also be giving the first official release to the entire Koola Lobitos catalogue- this was Fela’s highlife band which he fronted through the 60′s.

The Best of the Black President, to be released October 27th, compiles thirteen of the most popular Fela compositions, all fully remastered. It will be released in two forms, one as a deluxe version including a bonus DVD.

In addition to The Knitting Factory Records reissues, the first ever official Fela Kuti website has been launched (Fela.net), and a Broadway musical (Fela!) opens in November at Eugene O’Neil Theatre. Also keep your eyes peeled for Felabration events happening across the country and the world in mid-October, to celebrate the birthday of Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
