After all the sad news of last weekend, great news today!
First of all, UW let us know that Rick is doing well again.
Then the other good news.
Underworld proudly present “Oblivion with Bells” to be released October 2007
A new album (link to press release in pdf/zip)
from the press release:
“Oblivion with Bells” draws heavily on Rick and Karls’ vast array of musical
influences (Nick Drake, Def Mix, Ricardo Villalobos, Can, James Holden, Eno)
and experiences performing worldwide to create a truly unique Underworld
journey. The album kicks off like Saturday night with Sven Väth, Simian Mobile
Disco and Frankie Knuckles all fighting to get on the decks, then takes you over
the flat fields of rural Essex, through Kings Cross with its olympic dreams and
piss stained alleys, ending blissed out in a hidden cove in Ibiza. Epic techno
nestles next to frail acoustics, beatific prose next to sharp urban observation,
amazing sound texturing mixed with mobile phone recordings, rarely has the
Underworld palette been so rich.
I can’t wait!
