Kindness shares video for Robyn-aided “Who Do You Love?”, announces US tour dates



UK singer Adam Bainbridge, aka Kindness, returns today with a video for his Robyn collaboration, “Who Do You Love?”. Directed by Daniel Brereton, it features portraits of both singers’ family and friends. Explained Bainbridge, “This video and this song is about people and connection, and how you can identify who you are by those you love. Those people say a hell of a lot about you.”

Additionally, Kindness has announced the first batch of 2015 tour dates in support of his recently released sophomore album, Otherness. The itinerary includes a few dates in February, but really picks up in March, with additional shows still to be announced. Watch the video and see the current tour schedule below.

Philippe Zdar To Produce The Rapture Album

Back in June, the Rapture announced that co-frontman Mattie Safer had left the group, and the storied New York dance-punk quartet was now a trio. In the blog post announcing Safer’s departure, keyboardist Gabe Andruzzi said that the group had “been on a creative tear.” Pedestrian.TV reports that to harness that creative tear, they’ve roped in a pretty august producer: Philippe Zdar, one half of the French dance duo Cassius.

Zdar’s production credits include Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix and Cut Copy’s Bright Like Neon Love, and he has worked with Daft Punk, Air, and Bloc Party, among others.

Zdar told Pedestrian that he’s doing work on the new Rapture album: “They came to me and said, ‘We loved the Phoenix album, and we want to do some new music. Will you be able to help us?'”

The album still seems to be very much in the planning stages, and they might still use other producers besides Zdar. But Zdar likes what he’s hearing so far: “I think it’s a very good direction. All the songs are stronger– well, the seven or eight they sent me. There’s still a lot of what I loved about the first album on these new tracks, and also a lot of new futuristic stuff, so it’s really interesting.”

The Rapture have plenty of experience working with respected producers. The DFA helmed Echoes, the band’s debut (and Pitchfork’s #57 album of the decade). And Paul Epworth, Ewan Pearson, and Danger Mouse all contributed production to their 2006 follow-up Pieces of the People We Love.

Meanwhile, the Rapture continue to run their label Throne of Blood. The latest Throne of Blood single, John Selway’s “Shake the Snow”, is out today.

Creativity has always been essential for our cultural growth, but there are still many misconceptions about this elusive process.

Creativity has always been essential for our cultural growth, but there are still many misconceptions about this elusive process. Not the left-brain/right-brain binary that we’ve come to believe, being creative is considerably more complex, and requires a nuanced understanding of ourself and others. Being a powerful creative person involves letting go of preconceived notions of what an artist is, and discovering and inventing new processes that yield great ideas. Most importantly, creators must push forward, whether the light bulb illuminates or not.
