Label offering stems
of all the tracks on new Kilbey-Martin Kennedy album for fans to remix.
By Blurt Staff
Due out Jan. 26 from Second Motion is Unseen Music/Unheard Words, a joint project from the Church’s Steve
Kilbey and All India Radio’s Martin Kennedy. The record’s been out digitally
for some time already, notching up enthusiastic reviews. Check some of the fan
comments posted at Amazon.com:
“If you’re a fan of the Church, All India Radio, or Steve
Kilbey solo projects, this is a must buy. Every song is a masterpiece! Blending
swirling atmospherics and acoustic guitar with Kilbey’s baritone makes for a
“Any fan of Steve Kilbey would know right away that this is
one of his finest lyrical works. No matter how long it took to write the words.
A brilliant mix of Kennedy’s music and Steve’s voice. The two seem to be made
for each other. A wonderful piece of music indeed. This one will go down in
history as a masterpiece. Slow….and….easy.”
The label’s also sweetening the deal by offering to folks
who order the limited edition “digital deluxe version” an Ambient/Remix
album along with 8 digital illustrations from Kennedy. The remix record
includes 4 previously unreleased tracks:
all is one – black satin mix
piano 4.9 (friends are gone original piano)
stretch into the stars – raw mix
maybe soon – all india radio mix
Plus the rare track “Eyes Head,” originally done for the good folks over
at Magnet magazine.
More intriguingly, the band and label are putting on a Fan Remix Project.
