We are proud to announce that the second album from Listening Center will be released October 1st via This Is Care Of.
All music was recorded live by David Mason, exclusively using analogue instruments. We still don’t quite understand how he does it, and we can’t stop listening….
Preorders for the limited edition cassette tapes are almost sold out via the Listening Center Bandcamp Store, so now might be the time if you are thinking to get a copy.
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
“When Animals Dream”, debut feature film by director Jonas Arnby (with original musical score by Mikkel Hess) is selected for the prestigious Critics Week Lineup at Cannes Film Festival 2014. Congratulations to Jonas and everyone on the team… Hurra!
The music was mainly composed and produced at This Is Care Of Studio, integrating long distance session recordings of Prague Symphony Orchestra with pump organ and other elements.

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
