New NIN is okay, nothing super special. Could probably have been helped by being cut back a little, but then again so could the first four volumes of Ghosts...

In other new albums from today, Ringo Deathstarr came out with a self-titled effort. The first two songs aren't great, but it gets better from there; very diverse with beautiful vocals.

Quote:
To mark this year’s 88th day and as an acknowledgement to these unprecedented circumstances we find ourselves in, Piano Day founder, pianist and producer Nils Frahm releases a collection of eight solo piano pieces titled Empty out now.

Conceived of just before Nils broke his thumb and composed the similarly intimate solo piano album Screws, Empty is a soothing vessel of eight simple and serene pieces originally recorded as the music to a short art film he shot with his friend and film director Benoit Toulemonde. Drifting through emotions from the stark and sobering opener First Defeat, to the gently euphoric No Step On Wing and the contemplative but hopeful closer Black Notes, with its poignant minute of silence, Empty is a comforting score for these turbulent times.

“When I came back from the hospital with a broken thumb and listened to the recordings, I felt they were unfinished. I decided to put them aside and started to work on my small album, Screws.

Many many other notes of the piano have been struck since these days, and before we all forget about this, I thought it would be a good moment to share these lullabies with you. I hope they help you stay all strong and calm in these days of solitude – despite the hardship, we can discover introspection and reflection unexpectedly. Who knows what it is good for.

Much love, Nils”

About Piano Day:

“Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” – Nils Frahm

Piano Day is an annual event conceived of five years ago by the composer, producer and pianist Nils Frahm. It takes place on the 88th day of the year on March 28, 2020 – the number of keys on the piano. Over the past five years Piano Day has grown into a global phenomenon, celebrated in countries all over the world by artists and audiences alike.

The desire to celebrate this versatile instrument is growing greater than ever with more than 100 piano-related events planned this year around the world. But due to the current situation with regard to the coronavirus pandemic, Piano Day encourages all the piano lovers, organisers and promoters to cancel their events to put everyone’s health and safety first.

A list of all originally planned Piano Day events is available on the official site. As this is changing day-to-day, please check each event you are interested in to see if it is cancelled, postponed or shared via livestream.

The new Nicolas Jaar album, Cenizas, is a twisting, turning abstract affair and interesting counterpoint to the hard-hitting Against All Logic album he released earlier this year.

Guy’s occupying an interesting and special place in modern music.

Zoomers are even into him on Twitter and Instagram and shit.

The Against All Logic album is better, though.

Yeah, the new Yves Tumor is pretty good. Not as good as Safe in the Hands of Love from 2018, but still pretty damn solid.

Major Bummer! The launch of the mothership has been postponed to June (and it's not yet on their bandcamp). It can already be preordered from their label unday records

Gizz gets no love in "my" Gizz thread, so I thought that I would talk about them here, he said, expecting the same response.

I'm excited about the new live album (with three "other" tracks) and concert film THIS month!! Gizz gonna help me get through this fuckedupdedness.

Edit: Chunky Shrapnel, it is called.

Red Summer by ONO finally arrived at my home today, really glad I got the deluxe edition with the Epistle booklet. It's going to be hard for anything to top this 4 best of the year but it is only April. I think this is going to hold its place though. Easily one of the most truly unique groups to ever exist and this is a strong showing in a body of work with a very high standard to begin with. Highest recommendation.

TRUE STORY: When I was in third or fourth year at college, I was running out of time to finish two papers, one for communication sociology and the other for semiotics. I had less than two hours to finish both and I went, fuck this, it's impossible to write them both seriously. So I prioritized the first one (teacher was a hardass) and in the time I had left (fifteen minutes, maybe) I made up whatever junk I could come up with for the semiotics class, which was a COMPLETE JOKE taught by a schizophrenic (seriously, he was once institutionalized after yelling at the dean for not enlisting him in the CIA). Anyway, among all the "semiotic" crap I typed, I wrote, "
 
 
 
according to Yves Rousseau's proto-cross theory". THERE IS NO SUCH THING AND THERE IS NO YVES FUCKING ROUSSEAU.

Got an A. True story.

Daniel Avery and Alessandro Cortini have a collaborative album out (well, a month ago), very nice ambient/noise/drone record. Might be better if you don't listen to it on shuffle first time around like I did...
