To be released on 16 April via Luke Younger’s Alter Records is “XMIT “, the debut album by Microcorps aka Alex Tucker. Out now the project’s newest video for the – excellent – album track “UVU”.
Tucker explains this about the new video which you can watch below: “I wanted to make something that reflected the cold realm of the current Microcorps world, using black and white digital landscapes alongside footage I shot in Walthamstow Wetlands Nature Reserve. In the film I created these liminal transitions between the synthetic and human to reflect the track’s use of machine-led systems and processed acoustic instruments.”
The new 8-track album features collaborations with Gazelle Twin, Nik Void, Simon Fisher Turner and Astrud Steehouder.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
