Fait – ‘Solace’


Fait is on her way to Bigsound next week and she’s marking the occasion with a new single and video. ‘Solace’ is a beautiful cinematic piece, a slow burning instrumental with a deep, deep bass line. The apocalyptic tune is a tension builder, and a reminder of how brilliant she is! For those new to the party, Fait is the work of Perth multi-instrumentalist Elise Higgins, who performs live with three members from Hyla (Rob Stephens, Mike Antonas and Darrell Sundai). Believe it or not but Fait sounds even better on stage (see dates).

Jakob – 'Malachite'

New Zealand post rock three-piece Jakob have wrapped up touring commitments with Mono and Russian Circles. In the new year they’ll take their live show to Europe and the UK. But the big news is that Jakob have spent the last few months recording a new album, due early 2012! It was just mixed by Aaron Harris (from ISIS) – have a listen to the original demo teasers here. The new record will be their first in six years, following ‘Solace’ which featured the brilliantly atmospheric track ‘Malachite’.
