Slime announces debut album ‘Company’24/06/2015
Company released August 14th on Weird Word Records is the debut album by Slime, the nom-de-plume of producer and multi-instrumentalist Will Archer. At a time when electronic music feels dominated by brash bombast and hyper-real concept, its ten elusive, unsettling and emotional tracks offer a master-class in nuance and sincerity. Coalescing into one unique statement, Company is as distinct and fully-formed as any debut album in recent memory, a blurred window into a deeply private, focused and possibly-quite-unusual artistic vision. With this announcement Slime shares new song Hot Dog. Listen here: soundcloud.com/slime-hot-dog

Awards triumph for Mica Levi’s Under The Skin soundtrack05/01/2015
We are proud to announce that Mica Levi has received two awards for her highly acclaimed score for the Jonathan Glazer directed feature, ‘Under The Skin’. The first comes from the European Film Awards where Mica picked up the award for ‘European Composer’, the second accolade from the LA Film Critics association for ‘Best Music Score’. For the 26 year old leader of Micachu And The Shapes, the UTS score is her first experience of composing for film. Jonathan Glazer commented on his experience of working with Mica, ‘Mica is very insightful and intuitive…We had a lot of discussions about what sounds might work and what wouldn’t, and when we heard the ones that sounded right, they became the language for the film. All those bendy and stretched notes just felt correct. It came half from the heart, half from the head.’
