While on tour in the US, Jamie ’XX’ Smith talked in-depth to Martin ‘Blackdown’ Clark about ‘We’re New Here’, his remix album for Gil Scott-Heron.
The interview was organised for the sleeve notes for the record, writen by Clark, but none of the quotes made the final cut. Clark has now posted the full interview on his blog, where Jamie reveals that he was approached with the project by XL boss Richard Russell, off the back of his 2009 remix of Florence and the Machine’s ‘You Got the Love’.
I love this edit from French Vans team rider, Jeremy Miller. Filmed and edited by Green Film.
I’ve heard this a few times now…and, well.. I love it.
I first came across this band when I was in New Zealand. They did the soundtrack for the amazing film ‘Boy’ which won best soundtrack at the NZ Film Awards. The film itself is now the highest grossing NZ film at the NZ box office of all time! ..if and when it it released over here you have to go see it!
Anyway, back to to the music…
This kiwi band have being going for over 10 years and are highly respected in New Zealand, however they’ve struggled to make waves worldwide.
The latest album ‘Buffalo’ is released on the 24th January and is already generating quite a lot of hype.
The London date of their European tour has completely sold out but if you’re lucky there might be a few tickets left for the Bristol and Brighton dates next month.
