Danish electro goth / indie rockers Nelson Can announce solo desire: remixed together collaboration project
Danish electro / goth indie rock trio Nelson Can have announced the Solo Desire: Remix Together collaboration project—an initiative to use their own audience and streaming channels to provide an opportunity for artists and musicians to further support themselves financially at this difficult time.
After disbanding earlier this year, the three-piece are providing open-source access to the stems from their final album So Long Desire, and encouraging fellow artists and producers to submit their own remixes of tracks from the record.
All submissions will then be released on a 50/50 royalty split with contributors, who the trio hope will benefit from the band’s existing profile and audience.
The deadline for submissions is midnight on 21st May 2020.
Commenting on the idea, the band say:-
“Times like these call for creative thinking. We disbanded in January so we don’t really need the publicity, but a lot of artists do. We want to offer the chance to other artists to use our platform; our name, our music and our access to fans and followers, to generate revenue for themselves. Really, it’s a no-brainer. We have something that could be valuable to others, and we are currently not using it, so why on earth shouldn’t we just allow others to use it?
It’s important to us to make clear that this is not charity; it’s about sharing and collaboration. The artists who join the project will receive credit and royalties for their work and can hopefully use it to add to the progression of their own career.”
So Long Desire was released earlier this year on Alcopop! Records and was Nelson Can's first album in six years. Their maturation as both musicians and songwriters over the course of their career can be heard strikingly in the evolution of this, their final record together.
Since parting ways, the members of Nelson Can are all embarking on new musical projects. Front woman Selina Gin has taken up the mantle as producer and lyricist in her solo project ‘SELINA GIN’, where she creates beautiful soundscapes to envelope her sometimes delicate, sometimes earth-shattering, voice in chameleonic fashion. She had her debut live performance as a solo artist supporting The National last November.
Bassist Signe SigneSigne and drummer Maria Juntunen are both also working on new projects, with details TBA.
Solo Desire: Remixed Together will be released 19th June 2020

Copenhagen based d-beat hardcore quartet Parasight has completed a new video for the track "De Skyder," which has been debuted at Decibel Magazine. The song comes from the band's impending At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb LP, out March 9th via Indisciplinarian and Modstand Records.
Of the simultaneously furious and melodic "De Skyder" ("they're shooting" in Danish), Parasight guitarist Allan Tvedebrink states, "'De skyder' is the second single from our new album, At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb, and marks our first video ever. Being a DIY band from the beginning, what else would be more obvious than to do the entire shit ourselves? Everything is filmed and edited by the band and of course we think it's pretty nifty! The song itself is one of the more melodic tracks of the album and deals with the concept of making profit of war and killing people."
Decibel offers with the video, "Denmark's Parasight have a new album's worth of crust and metallic hardcore beatings to deliver with At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb, but they also have a softer side, as you'll hear on the more melodic hardcore-leaning cut 'De Skyder'."
Watch Parasight's video for "De Skyder" at Decibel HERE.
Also hear the previously-released "Bløder Blod" via No Echo RIGHT HERE.
At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb will be released on LP and digital formats via Indisciplinarian and Modstand Records on March 9th; the LP version, limited to 500 copies worldwide, is available for preordering in the US HERE and internationally HERE.
With their second full length At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et HåB (Danish for "to live as if there was hope"), Parasight delivers a consistent metallic hardcore record which in its political songwriting carries an indignant system critique. With inspiration from the political Danish rock of the '70s, lyricist and lead singer Michael Aagesen writes easily intelligible anti-elite lyrics in which content is above form. At Leve... is produced by the band itself, mixed by Swedish producer legend Fredrik Nordström (Martyrdöd, At The Gates), mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, From Ashes Rise), with artwork by German artist Philip Janta.
Parasight will play a release show at the Huset Hardcore festival in Copenhagen on the LP's release day, and in addition they have just been confirmed for the newly formed hardcore and punk festival IlterFestival in May in Odense. More shows will be announced soon.

Gorillaz share a surprise new track, Garage Palace featuring Little Simz. The song has already been raucously received at their live shows and now it comes accompanied by a brilliantly retro 8-bit video game visualiser. Collaborating with Little Simz’ illustrator McKay Felt and director Noah Harris, this video adds to their long run of innovative and ground-breaking work, with the game ingeniously following Simz through dark alleys and cloudy skies on a series of combats, missions and obstacles to reach the top of a tower block for her final battle, but not without the collective muscle of Gorillaz behind her. Level UP!
Even more excitingly, Little Simz will be supporting Gorillaz on the Humanz tour across European and U.K. dates this Autumn/Winter. European dates commence in November which will lead to their homecoming gigs in London’s O2 Arena on December 4th and 5th, with their usual line up of surprise special guests.
The Super Deluxe Vinyl Boxset consists of Gorillaz’ new album Humanz, presented across 14 individual pieces of 12-inch different coloured vinyl, packaged in individually art-worked sleeves. All tracks on Humanz are backed with a non-album bonus track, most of which are previously unreleased. The Boxset also Includes a 54-page, cloth-bound, foil-blocked, hardback book of Gorillaz artwork by Jamie Hewlett and a download card, all housed in a bespoke 12-inch vinyl carrying case.
