Vinyl Record News & Music Notes



MOBY & MARK LANEGAN  The Lonely Night 7”


It’s the most wonderful time of the year…the day where you wake up early and eagerly scamper to unwrap your favorite new thing---VINYL! It’s like the Christmas in April for your earbuds and your record player. We know you have been counting down the months, days, hours, minutes since Jack White was announced as this year’s ambassador---but just to remind you don’t forget to set your alarm early for Saturday April 20th!

Mute’s own additions to the amazing list of releases are exclusive pieces from Moby and Junip.  Moby and Mark Lanegan were happy to join forces and record a limited edition 7” of The Lonely Night featuring a B-side remix by electronic extrodinaire Photek. 

Moby describes preparing the release, “…and in producing the song, spike stent and i incorporated some very unusual production techniques... we ran all of the instruments through a distortion pedal into a guitar amp. so really there are only 3 tracks: left channel through a distortion pedal and guitar amp, right channel through a distortion pedal and guitar amp, and mark's vocals.  the end result is intentionally very broken and atmospheric."

Junip (José González, Tobias Winterkorn and Elias Araya) couldn’t wait to share with you their sophomore self-titled release out on April 23rd so they figured they would release a limited COLOR vinyl for you just in case you wanted to host your own first listen. 

Junip is already receiving rave reviews and Billboard recently shared their own love for the record stating,  “Led by multi-culti boy wonder José González…the act's music somehow manages to incorporate everything from African rhythms to English psychedelia to keyboardist Tobias Winterkorn's spacey synth stylings, setting the band virtually in a genre of it's own making." If that doesn’t inspire you to get out early, we don’t know what will!
