The live-electronic trio released 'SOLACE' under their newly-launched imprint, Rose Avenue and Reprise Records
Globally renowned, live-electronic trio Rüfüs Du Sol has released their third full-length LP, 'Solace' from their newly-launched Rose Avenue imprint and Reprise Records today.
Equal parts rock n'roll temperament and ethereal electronic soundscape, the album shepherds the band into a new realm of sonic exploration. They haven't lost the anthemic qualities that propelled them to become one of electronic music's juggernauts, but from the outset, 'Solace' is their darkest and most introspective work to date.
The release comes as the band embarks on a US tour that includes sold-out shows at LA's Shrine Expo Hall and New York's Terminal 5, as well as a Halloween performance at San Diego's Valley View Casino Center. They'll also stop by Emo's in Austin, The Van Buren in Phoenix, and The Fillmore in Denver, and Voodoo Music & Arts Experience in New Orlean's before heading to Europe, Australia, and Mexico.

Tyrone Lyndvist's cry for help on 'Underwater' is visceral, but its urgency will still make packed crowds dance:
Help me out before I die
Save me now before I give up
Help me out before I drown
'Cause I just need some some space
It's this duality that makes this record so fascinating and captivating. Rüfüs Du Sol has managed to make an album full of kinetic energy and dance floor appeal, and packed it full of pain.
A sense of place has always been a crux of the Rüfüs Du Sol songwriting process. Their debut album was recorded on Australia's idyllic east coast, and their sophomore 'Bloom' was produced in Berlin. These environments imbue each record with a certain flavor, and 'Solace,' written and recorded in Venice, California, is no different. But it was not Hollywood glitz that manifested itself into 'Solace,' but rather the darker underbelly of Los Angeles and the barren-but-beautiful spaces of the desert.
'Solace' features a singular fusion of analogue sound design and emotional songwriting that has earned early support from industry titans like Pete Tong and Zane Lowe. In September, they were named Mixmag's "Cover Stars" and recently performed on KCRW's Morning Become Eclectic:

You'll never guess #1 (*wink wink*)
The 4th of July means you'll probably get plenty of time to watch movies about aliens.
Why aliens? Because it's Independence Day, silly: the day our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, freeing the thirteen American colonies from British rule. As a nation of immigrants, one could argue that we're all aliens on this special day. So without further ado, here are the top five Alien movies to watch on Independence Day (*wink wink*).

New Zealand's greatest writer-director-actor has some big new projects coming up, but it's worth looking back at his previous work
A lot of filmmakers keep themselves apart from their work.
You can watch all of their films, learn to recognize their style and vision, and still be left with the mystery of who their creator is. That's not the case with New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi.
