Just out of their teens, it seems Copenhagen’s Iceage have only added to the anxiety and tension that made their debut album, New Brigade, so compelling. But now, they’re challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them. You're Nothing, Iceage’s sophomore album, is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, Goth, hardcore, and post-punk to even further extremes. It’s overwhelming how many ways Iceage have found to write the short aggressive rock song.
When you see Iceage live you get the feeling the songs are just about to fall apart before miraculously recovering, always rewarding you with a climax. This menacing energy is more forceful on You're Nothing. It is a more epic sound, like a rough sea.
News From The Matablog
OK, we missed Black Friday by a few days, but if that means ONE LESS TRAMPLING this holiday shopping season, it was totally worth it. On December 3, we're releasing a limited edition, one-time pressing of a $5.99 list LP , 'It's Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You', featuring 9 songs from (most of) our 2013 releases. In addition to album tracks from Chelsea Light Moving, Majical Cloudz, Body/Head, Lee Ranaldo & The Dust, Iceage and Kurt Vile, there's a live version of Queens of the Stone Age performing "If I Had A Tail" at the 2013 iTunes Festival (Roundhouse, London), Savages' "City's Full" from last summer's KEXP session, and Yo La Tengo performing "Before We Run" in those same KEXP studios. We don't have any copies for mail order, sadly, but hopefully you'll find one at your favorite record store after they're done sweeping up all the broken glass, blood, etc. from Black Friday. If you prefer, you can order a digital version of the comp. right now at the Matador Store.
One of 2013's best albums just got the BONUS treatment ; Iceage's 'You're Nothing' has been expanded in digital form to include 3 additional tracks, "To The Comrades" (Bahumutsi Drama Group), "Jackie" (Sinead O'Connor) and the previously unreleased "A-Rifle". You can order it today via iTunes, or opt for the "To The Comrades" b/w "Jackie" import 7".
As we type, Iceage are closing out 2013 with worldwide tour dates in support of the year's essential You're Nothing LP. To round out the year Iceage returned to the studio earlier this month to record a covers 7" to be released on November 19 in partnership with Denmark's Escho Records. Entitled 'To The Comrades', the 7" contains an incendiary cover of South Africa's Bahumutsi Drama Group's anthem of the same name & a smoldering take on Sinead O'Connor's "Jackie". You can listen to both tracks below & pre-order the vinyl at the Matador Store. Also, come November 19th. We'll be releasing a digital-only deluxe version of You’re Nothing featuring the album, these covers and 1 b-side. Keep an eye on the Matablog for more info on that soon. Thu.
