Mark Pritchard – Beautiful People

If you haven’t pressed the play button yet, think of the video for “Beautiful People” as an animated version of the Mark Pritchard album cover, yet more music-video than those teaser animations that made the rounds before the album came out. The Michał Marczak directed video coincides with the release of the first single taken from the said album, and for those that haven’t heard it yet: it features Radiohead’s Thom Yorke on vocals. Order your copy on vinyl or digital from Bleep!

Also for those that haven’t heard the album, make sure to check out the wonderful radioshow by Mark, in which he plays 2 hours of music that inspired the album.

Mark Pritchard on NTS Live

Following the release of the highly anticipated Mark Pritchard album “Under The Sun”, the man himself stepped up for a two hour radio-show on NTS Live, playing music influencing his sound, the new album and over-all favourites. From Steve Reich to Moondog, Delia Derbyshire to Krzysztof Penderecki, Siouxsie & The Banshees to The Cure, this is a much recommended listen. Finally available on Mixcloud, for those who missed it live!

Mark Pritchard – Sad Alron

It’s been a while since Mark Pritchard delivered a series of badman tunes for Warp throughout 2013. Finally, the label revealed its plans to release „Under The Sun”, the first LP under his legal name, to be released on May 13th, 2016.

The album will feature the stellar “?”, previously released on Ho Hum Records in 2009 and a longtime favourite of mine. The first new track that was revealed with the announcement is “Sad Alron”, which you can see in the video above, directed by Jonathan Zawada.
