Hot Chip – “Look At Where We Are (Four Tet Remix)”

A couple of weeks ago, we posted Major Lazer’s fiery EDM-reggae remix of Hot Chip’s lovely synthpop lament “Look At Where We Are.” Now Four Tet has remixed it too, taking the song in the exact opposite direction and turning it into a spare and haunted eight-minute love-koan that gets busier as it rolls on.

Neneh Cherry & The Thing – “Dream Baby Dream (Four Tet Remix)” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

In April, Neneh Cherry, a late-’80s avatar of cool whose old records have held up remarkably well, released “Dream Baby Dream,” a gorgeous cover of the Suicide classic that she recorded with the Scandinavian jazz combo the Thing. It’s the first track we heard from The Cherry Thing, their collaborative covers album, which drops tomorrow. More »

Four Tet – “128 Harps”

Last month, Four Tet released his single “Jupiters” b/w “Ocoras.” And since Kieran Hebden seems to work exclusively in the medium of single these days, he’s already got a follow-up ready to go: “128 Harps,” which hit the web today. It’s a fast-moving but gorgeous example of his soulful, organic take on IDM, and it’… More »

Four Tet Remixes Neneh Cherry

On the new covers album The Cherry Thing, late-’80s embodiment of cool Neneh Cherry teams up with Scandinavian jazz crew the Thing. (Cherry herself is actually jazz royalty; she’s Don’s daughter. She’s also Eagle Eye’s sister, but let’s not hold that against her.) Fellow traveler Four Tet has remixed their great spun-out cover of Suicide’… More »

One Little Plane – “She Was Out In The Water” (Feat. Colin Greenwood)

One Little Plane is the guise of psych/folk musician Kathryn Bint, and later this spring she’ll put out a record (a follow-up to 2008’s Until) on the label run by Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden, Text Records. Listen to a track from that release, an ornate, slow-building number featuring Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood and produced by… More »

Burial + Four Tet – “Nova”

Foggy early-dubstep eminence Burial and emotive psychedelic-electronic master Four Tet have teamed up before, for a pair of tracks that also featured Thom Yorke, and now they’ve joined forces once again, sans Yorke this time. Last night, Four Tet posted a collaboration between the two called “Nova,” a six-minute track that seems to take classic… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

CMJ 2011: Stereogum, Domino, Ribbon Music, Todd P Showcase @ 285 Kent 10/19/11

Thanks to everyone who came to 285 Kent last night for our party with Domino/Ribbon Music, and Todd P, and the Software label. Hope everyone that wanted to get in, got in — I know it was a wet night to be on the sidewalk and shut out of a show. Many propers to all… More »

Radiohead @ Roseland Ballroom, NYC 9/28/11

Though I have my reservations about The King Of Limbs and, like most people, revere the back catalog enough to be considered “formative” of personal experience listening to alternative music, I had realistic expectations for Wednesday night’s Radiohead show, the first of two at NYC’s Roseland ballroom. After all, this isn’t the band from MeetingMore »

Tinariwen – “Tenere Taqqim Tossam” (Feat. Tunde Adebimpe & Kyp Malone) (Four Tet Remix)

Here Four Tet Kieran Hebden has his way with the Tishoumaren gyspy folk-blues avatars Tinariwen in seven-minute remix fashion. The African outfit’s latest LP for ANTI- Tassili is the first of theirs to abandon electric guitars in favor of acoustics, which makes Four Tet’s cut-and-paste electronic manipulations of this TVOTR-guesting track ironic, and typically creative.

FYF Fest 2011 In Photos

FYF Fest, which has had issues with security and crowds in previous years, seems to have moved past those problems and evolved into a healthier, happier festival. Standout sets included Girls, who played heavily from their upcoming Father, Son, Holy Ghost, buzzbuilders Purity Ring and steady, show-those-tikes-how-it’s-done vets like Guided By Voices and the Descendents.

Four Tet – “Locked”

Have a listen to the new, nerve-settling, subdued and beautiful early-morning beat exercise from Four Tet, titled “Locked,” culled from the end of his mix for the forthcoming Fabriclive 59 (out 10/18 in the US, 9/19 in the UK). According to P4K, Kieran Hebden also intends on releasing the cut as a single on hi… More »

Stream Four Tet’s Radiohead Remix has posted the third in the band’s ongoing series of 12″s featuring remixes of their Basement-jacked King Of Limbs LP. This third volume is anchored by Four Tet’s ambient then percussive, midrange EQ’d redo of “Separator,” and also features Pearson Sound (“Morning Mr. Magpie”) and Lone plying an almost 2-step garage feel into “Feral.”… More »

Watch Thom Yorke Debut Radiohead Remixes At Four Tet DJ Night

To kick off three consecutive nights DJing at London’s Plastic People, on Friday Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden invited Thom Yorke to join in spinning some tunes. According to Four Tet’s Twitter after the set, Thom killed it “with heavy new Radiohead remixes” (from the forthcoming King Of Limbs 12″ series). Coincidentally, earlier in the night… More »

Burial – “Stolen Dog” & “Street Halo”

Hyperdub label head Kode9 stopped into the Benji B’s BBC show and played lots of forthcoming music from his label, though as the self-described “Burial purist” says (presumably in response to those “Ego”/”Mirror” collabs with Thom Yorke and Four Tet, but also because Untrue came ages ago): it’s nice to hear some new solo Burial… More »

Thom Yorke x Four Tet x Burial – “Ego” & “Mirror”
