ANTONY RELEASES BOOK TO ACCOMPANY SWANLIGHTS ALBUM

There’s not long to wait until Swanlights – October 8 to be exact – though in the meantime there’s another reason to be counting down for Antony & The Johnsons: the 144 page book of paintings, drawings, photography, collage and writings that’s accompanying the album’s release. Created and curated entirely by Antony, it’s a very beautiful collection of words and pictures that walks hand in hand with the Swanlights album. You can pre-order your own through Sydney’s Ariel bookstores now.

OLOF ARNALDS – INNUNDIR SKINNI OUT TODAY September 9th 2010 By brooke

OLOF ARNALDS – INNUNDIR SKINNI OUT TODAY

It’s a good day for music – Icelandic songstress Ólöf Arnalds’ new album, Innundir Skinni is out now in Australia.

Drawing on that distinctly intricate and organic Icelandic sound, more traditional folk and modern pop sounds take shape behind her otherworldy voice. A duet with Bjork and guestings from a handful of incredible Icelandic musicians make this a very special collection of stories, divided between her native tongue and English.

If you’re not familiar, visit Ólöf’s Myspace where the new single, Crazy Car, is streaming now. htp://www.myspace.com/olofarnalds
