New Signing: William Close

“Architecture Is Frozen Music” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Nettwerk Music Group is excited to announce the signing of experimental musician and innovator William Close. Having developed over 100 new types of musical instruments, Close is most recognized for the largest stringed instrument in the world – The Earth Harp. “It’s an instrument unlike anything Bach or Beethoven could have ever imagined,” writes The New York Times (July 2013).

Developed and built by Close, the body of the instrument rests on the stage, while the strings travel over the audience, attaching to the back of the theatre, concert hall and/or festival ground, turning every space into an instrument. Close studied sculpture and sound design at the Art Institute of Chicago. His installations and performances have been experienced around the world – including The Coliseum in Rome, The Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, The Seattle Space Needle, the temples of Vietnam, Grand Theater of Shanghai International Arts Festival, Brazil’s Theatro Municipal in São Paulo, The Dhow Harbour in Qatar, and major US festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella, Bumbershoot, Burning Man, Lightning In A Bottle, and more.

Madi Diaz 'Phantom' Out Sept 30; Tour Dates With X Ambassadors And Jamie N Commons

 

“Madi Diaz Writes The Most Danceable Break Up Record Ever” – LA Weekly

“With infectious structure and an addicting nature, Phantom should quickly find its way into an already powerfully, lady-driven indie pop movement, ready to kick down the doors of every local scene.” — High Voltage

"Instantly catchy and super upbeat, [’Stay Together’] has that special warm seasonality to surely be a fixture on many summer playlists.” — BlahBlahBlahScience

"Phantom…promises a big, bold and brightly colored production palette, keeping the organic instruments in check while amping up the electronica and big-beats.” —
Direct Current

“Madi Diaz creates gorgeous pop-infused anthems that almost definitely will shoot to the top of your summer playlists.” –
The Owl Mag

Following the releases of lead single “Stay Together” and “The Other Side EP,” Madi Diaz announces the release of her Nettwerk debut, Phantom, on September 30. Madi will celebrate by joining X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons on their “Into The Jungle” US tour, starting that same day (Sept 30) at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade. A full list of dates is below.

Hear Lead Single “Stay Together” Here:

Phantom was recorded in Madi’s newly adopted home of Los Angeles, produced by Nick Ruth (Mikky Ekko, Active Child) and mixed by John O’Mahony (Coldplay, Metric, Oh Land) at NYC’s famed Electric Lady Studios. The album’s 11 tracks expand upon Madi’s brand of sophisticated indie pop songs, providing a soundtrack for adventurous escapades on sweaty dance floors with old friends or late night introspective drives under a canopy of stars. Underneath the effervescent pop, her lyrics reveal an emotional through line.

Family Of The Year's "Hero" Featured in 'Boyhood,' Film By Richard Linklater


Official Trailer For Boyhood, Featuring “Hero”

Hero” by Nettwerk Records’ Family Of The Year is featured in the groundbreaking masterpiece, Boyhood, a film by Richard Linklater.

Last week, Boyhood made headlines with its debut at specialty box office, grossing the second best numbers of the year following Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. Filmed over short periods from 2002 to 2013, Linklater cast a child (Ellar Coltrane) as his protaganist and continues to build a story around him until he goes off to college. Rather than a documentary, the highly anticipated movie is a “complete, well-crafted character study,” (Entertainment Weekly).

Sinéad O’Connor Reveals A Behind-The-Scenes Clip

Sinéad O’Connor reveals a behind-the-scenes clip from the “Take Me To Church” music video shoot. "Take Me To Church" is the first single from her forthcoming studio album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss (Out August 12 via Nettwerk Records). With “Take Me To Church,” O’Connor explains, “the protagonist I’m writing about has had a profoundly distressing experience from which she is ultimately able to not only salvage herself but give birth to herself, coming to the conclusion, ‘I am only one I should adore.’”

Nettwerk One Publishing Artist Perfume Genius To Release New Album 'Too Bright' On September 22

Listen to “Queen” now: http://po.st/PGQYT

Over the course of two astonishing albums, Nettwerk One publishing artist Perfume Genius, aka Seattle native Mike Hadreas, cemented his place as a singer-songwriter of rare frankness, creating songs that, while achingly emotional, offered empathy and hope, rather than any judgment or hand-wringing. Sparse, gorgeous and with Hadreas’ quavering vocals often only accompanied by piano, they were uncommonly beautiful tales of a life lived on the dark side – scarred, brutal-ised, yet ultimately, slowly but surely reclaimed.

Too Bright, however, is something else altogether. Less self-conscious, and less concerned with storytelling and easily-digested melodies, it is a brave, bold, unpredictably quix-otic exploration of what Hadreas calls “an underlying rage that has slowly been growing since ten and has just begun to bubble up”. Recorded with Adrian Utley of Portishead and featuring John Parish on several tracks, it is a stunning about-face which brings to mind audacious career-shift albums like Kate Bush’s The Dreaming or Scott Walker’s Tilt, records which walk the tightrope between pure songwriting and overt experimentation.
