It is with great delight that we announce the signing of Madison, Wisconsin duo Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis, AKA Peaking Lights to Weird World. Incredibly immersive, wonderfully distinct and hauntingly beautiful, their “936” album has been a staple of our listening diet for much of this year since its north American release on the brilliant LA based Not Not Fun label in February and so we’re honoured to give it its first domestic release in the United Kingdom and Europe this autumn.
“936” will be available on CD/deluxe “Marshmellow Yellow” coloured vinyl / digitally from November 21st.
In more news, the band are due to start recording their next record in November of this year. The record is to be self-produced and engineered by Al Carlson (Yeasayer, Ford & Lopatin, Oneohtrix Point Never) in New York City. As-of-yet untitled, it is due for release through Weird World (world ex-USA) and Mexican Summer (USA) in Spring 2012.
A note from Aaron on the next record: “The songs that we’ve been working on have been very groovy and psyched out, foraging deeper into new rhythm techniques and territories, smoother bass lines w/ a heavy dub influence looking outward to private press boogie records, african & latin rhythms and tranced vibrations of the most killer all nite party you’ve never been to: less cocaine, more weed, a sustained orgasm, maintaining 100% creative control, late hot summer nights, come down chill room and low lit zone, lazer light show, smoke machines, being naked and watching the sun rise. This has been inspired by a long wild ride of a year with the birth of our son Mikko Lorenzo Dunis Coyes being at the helm of inspiration. We’re working on moving in new directions, there’s a lot of things we’ll never give up in our passion for making killer chunes but the birth of our son has been an eye opening event to infinite possibilities…”
