Jerome Derradji's Still Music will release a follow-up to 2005's In The Dark: The Soul Of Detroit on October 29th.
That first compilation (which was re-released last year) chronicled the contemporary Detroit beatdown scene ("somewhere between Detroit techno, house and soul" according to the label), with tracks from artists like Marcellus Pittman and Rick Wilhite showing that the scene was still strong. Now, eight years later, Still Music is releasing another In The Dark collection, this time subtitled Detroit Is Back. Described as "a journey through Detroit's basement clubs, studios and warehouses," it's a look at the more soulful end of the city's musical spectrum. Pittmann and Wilhite return, as do Amp Fiddler, Delano Smith and Keith Worthy, and this time Terrence Dixon, DJ 3000, Reggie Dokes and Craig Huckaby (brother to Mike) all join the fold as well.

GRAVE103 :: Xiu Xiu 'Nina' out Dec 3rd, 2013
The first Xiu Xiu full length on Graveface is an 11 song Nina Simone covers album featuring some incredible musicians: Ches Smith, Tim Berne, Tony Malaby, Mary Halvorson, Andrea Parkins and Jamie Stewart of course. From Jamie: "The idea came being back stage in Austin TX, opening for Swans and feeling like I did not play well. Michael Gira and I had the night before talked about our mutual love for Nina Simone and how her intensity and crazy political truthfulness always pushed us to try harder. After watching the Swans that night and knowing the difficult ups and downs of their history and now their epic and beautiful persistence, they made me want to try harder as well. Nina Simone's singing is way over my head and while I was back stage feeling like i blew it that night, hearing the swans be amazing and thinking of Nina made me want to not give up. The idea came from wanting to honor her, challenge myself to be better than I think I can be and to say thank you to music. Ches Smith is the only person i know who could understand this in his heart and also handle the technical side of fearlessly reorienting such wonderful music."
