The new Hessismore album is out now, released by This Is Care Of in collaboration with Concierge Records.
Vinyl, CD, Lossless Digital Download and Sheet Music available through the band webstore at www.hessismore.com
This is the first album to feature the full transatlantic ensemble – recorded mostly live to tape at Midnight Sun Studio in Greenpoint. The repertoire was assembled during Hessismore’s residency at the Clocktower Gallery, and somehow this does not sound like any other record we know of.
We hope you will enjoy the music – and the terrific artwork created by NR2154
This Is Care Of recently released the debut album “Example One” from Listening Center. Now the great UK based label Ghostbox features Listening Center on vinyl with a brand new track Titoli + Pye Corner Audio remix of “Town of Tomorrow”. Yes Sir Mason!
The largest Danish newspaper on Facebook ‘Dagbladet Information’ runs story on creative collective ‘This Is Care Of’. The article is based on an interview with Martin Burcharth at Clocktower Gallery NYC, May 2013. (Text in Danish) : >>http://www.information.dk/462458
The Sun Also Rises features two sets of songs: Five obscure tracks of African origin, recorded between the early ’80s and this past year, alongside five reinterpretations by artists drawn from the Scandinavian dance-music world. The album was initiated by Quartz+Co to create a musical reflection of its activities in Africa, where the company, which is based in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, has worked extensively to aid local entrepreneurship. To create the album, Quartz+Co called upon the services of This Is Care Of, a multimedia arts collective centered around the musicians Rasmus Bille Bahncke and Mikkel Hess and the designer Jacob Wildschioedtz—all Danish natives living in New York City. Unearthing the songs proved no small task. As Hess notes, “It was especially important to find songs that were, basically, the most bad-ass things we had heard in a long time.” – J. Ruttenberg Dec 3rd 2012, New York >> www.thesunalsorises.info
We are proud to have contributed with 2 tracks from This Is Care Of. Theodor Clausen’s remix of “Call for Change” (Hess Is More feat. Nomi Ruiz) and Willie Mays’ remix of “Portable Electronic Musical Instrument” (Listening Center).
Yes, the remix album is out now and we are pretty very much proud of it. Tracks from “Hess Is More – Creation Keeps the Devil Away” remixed by our friends and heroes! Artwork by Jacob Wildschiødtz / NR2154.
