Published Jun 18, 2019It's going to be a busy fall for Constellation Records, which has just announced not one new album release but four. Incoming from the Montreal label this fall are new albums by Fly Pan Am, Sandro Perri, Matana Roberts and Land of Kush.
Leading the way is Godspeed You! Black Emperor offshoot Fly Pan Am, who will be releasing their first new album in 15 years. Following up 2004's N'écoutez pas will be a new Fly Pan Am album called C'est ça, which will arrive on September 20.
Constellation has this to say about the band's return: "Blending tightly-wound Kosmische grooves, maximalist shoegaze noise, and bursts of sonic sabotage and deconstruction, C'est ça is a superb return to form for Fly Pan Am, picking up right where they left off, striking a glorious balance between ear-worm catchiness and unbridled sonic experimentation."
For a taste of the new album, you can hear its "Distance Dealer" below.
Sandro Perri, meanwhile, will release a new album called Soft Landing, which will arrive on September 6. It comes just 11 months after his In Another Life record.
According to Constellation, "he offers up a new and sublime collection, this time with guitar at the calmly rambling heart of these tunes: from the lushly languid 16-minute album opener 'Time (You Got Me)' to the syncopated '70s-inflected soft rock of 'Wrong About the Rain,' Soft Landing is a warm and hugely satisfying addition to Perri's diverse and unparalleled discography."
You can hear an edit of Soft Landing's "Time (You Got Me)" below.
On top of these two releases, Constellation will release a new album by Matana Roberts called COIN COIN Chapter Four: Memphis on October 18 and another LP by Land of Kush called Sand Enigma on November 8. You can hear tracks from both those albums as well below.
