What’s Between

LP, CD & DIGITAL

Cat. Number: TRIANGLE26

Release: 9TH JUNE 2014

25 year old multi instrumentalist James Kelly is, until now, best known as the sole permanent member and writer behind black metal outfit Altar Of Plagues, who have released two critically acclaimed albums on iconic labels Profound Lore and Candlelight. Using found sounds, homemade instruments and field recordings as a base, Altar Of Plagues create music “Full of radical tangents and alien-to-black metal elements, more focused on frailty and struggle than majesty and grandeur” – Pitchfork.

These ideas transfer to James’ solo recordings as WIFE. Embracing his long standing passion for electronic music the tracks on ‘Stoic’, his debut, limited edition EP which came out on left_blank in November 2012, showcase a diverse range of influences and are built to endure. The A-Side moves from the mournful, hypnotic opener ‘Bodies’, through the cold mantra of ‘Trials’, to the shuffling trickery of ‘Circles’. Side B contains the Gothic 2-step beauty of ‘Shards’ and the epic, industrial crescendo of ‘Endings’.

in 2013 WIFE. will be expanding upon his compelling initial offerings through Tri Angle.

Unsound & CMJ Occurrences…

This week one of the best music festivals in the world, Unsound, kicks off in Krakow, Poland. We’re very excited to have committed something of an unofficial takeover of the festival, with no less than 5 Tri Angle acts scheduled to perform. Those acts happen to be Evian Christ, Fatima Al Qadiri, Vessel (whose debut album ‘Order Of Noise’ is out today!), The Haxan Cloak, and brand new signing WIFE., whose appearance at Unsound this week will actually be his first ever live performance. Check here for details about when everyone will be playing.

Sticking with the festival theme, Holy Other will be finishing off his US tour with a couple of appearances at CMJ in NYC. On Friday he’ll be performing at the Pitchfork event at Villain in Brooklyn, alongside Death Grips, DIIV, and Joey Badass to name a few, and on Saturday he’ll be headlining La Poisson Rouge with amazing support from Autre Ne Veut and Vatican Shadow. Aside from the NYC dates, this week Holy Other will be stopping off to play some headlining shows in Oberlin and Philadelphia beforehand. Check the events section for dates and venues.

As well as all this Balam Acab, The Haxan Cloak (supporting Liars) and oOoOO are continuing on with their separate tours of Europe. They might be in a town near you very soon!
