Saw the film, 'Dancer in the Dark' today.

Yikes.

It was a good movie, very well done. I liked it and would recommend it to people also. That being said, yikes. It will not go down on my "feel good" movies list.

"Instruments are so over," says Bjork of her new, purely vocal album, Medulla, due out late August/early September.



Yeah, Dancer in the Dark is pretty grim. I have a love-hate relationship with it.

More new album news:

http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/news/04-07/15.shtml


Details Emerge on Björk's Medulla
Beatboxing members of Spoon, Flaming Lips still waiting for that invite
Miles Barger reports:
If you've been following Pitchfork's recent news coverage of Björk, you already know that the diminutive diva's follow-up to 2001's icy Vespertine sports the title Medulla, and that it will feature, in typical Björkian fashion, contributions from her innumerable artist freak pals. If you were reading closely, you also know that one of these contributors is a Japanese beatbox artist named Dokaka. What you didn't know is that Björk apparently has plans to base much of the album-- if not its entirety-- on rhythmic structures created by mouth alone.

In a recent Rolling Stone article, Björk proclaimed that "instruments are so over." So, uh, what does that mean? Well, it means that, according to Billboard, Medulla will rely primarily on vocals, with Björk barking her charmingly broken English lyrics over beatbox rhythms. To this end, she's employed not just Dokaka, but also Shlomo (reportedly "the next step for the UK beatbox") and beatboxing legend Rahzel-- best known as a current member of The Roots, but formerly a collaborator with Grandmaster Flash and LL Cool J-- who will provide the equivalent of basslines for many of Medulla's 14 tracks.

The mouthbeats will, of course, be accompanied by more melodic vocal sounds, ranging from the trained classicism of Gregory Purnhagen and the Icelandic and London choirs, to the wildly original sounds provided by Inuit throat-singer Tanya Tagaq, and Mike Patton, the shrieking madman behind Mr. Bungle and Faith No More. Additionally, Matmos, Múm's Valgeir Sigurdsson, Olivier Alary (of Rephlex recording artists Ensemble), and Jake Davies (who has mixed previous releases by Björk, Madonna, William Orbit, and others) will contribute their programming skills.

It seems that all this reliance on the larynx stems from Björk's desire to mind-meld with Mother Nature. In an interview appearing in this month's W Magazine, Björk revealed that she was inspired by "paganism, and the rather esoteric idea of returning to a universe that is entirely human-- without tools or religion or nationalities."

Medulla is set to be released on August 31st via Elektra Records, and will appear in both CD and SACD formats. Also, Björk djörks should take note that a limited edition of the LP will feature expanded artwork and a 16-panel poster. The first single is expected to be "Oceania", which Björk is scheduled to perform live at the Olympic Games in Athens. Tracklist:

01 Pleasure Is All Mine
02 Show Me forgiveness
03 Where Is the Line?
04 Vokuro
05 Öll Birtan
06 Who Is It (Carry My Joy on the Left, Carry My Pain on the Right)
07 Submarine
08 Desired Constellation
09 Oceania
10 Sonnets/Unrealities XI
11 Piano II
12 Mouths Cradle
13 Wednesday (Midvikudags)
14 Triumph of a Heart

She's one of those rare 'multitalents' that we are blessed with every now and then, I've got all of her albums

2 songs were played on Radio 1 from the upcoming album, 'Medula', today. 'The Pleasure Is All Mine' and 'Mouth's Cradle'.....I have both of them on my computer....

Anyways, both are VERY cool!!! All of the background music was done 'vocally'. It's extremely impressive. I will KILL to see her perform these kind of songs live!!! I think I'm going to have to add this CD to my 'to buy' list!!! August 31 really isnt that far away, is it?!!!

Well that's exciting! Even though I rarely listen to her records, I love Bjork and the show I saw last summer at Red Rocks was one of the best shows I've ever seen in my life. She's extraordinary.

I'm anticipating this new album a lot, especially now that you (mofo) are saying the new songs sound so cool. Less than a month away now!

I listened to Pleasure is All Mine the other day and came away very impressed. So many potentially great albums coming out this year!

Try to get 'Mouth's Cradle'. I really like both, but I prefer Mouth's Cradle.

I guess I've no excuse then.

I surprised the whole shebang isn't online yet. I guess the big lables have good security.
