Ian William Craig & Daniel Lentz – FRKWYS Vol. 16: In a Word

In a Word, the sixteenth installment of the intergenerational collaboration series FRKWYS, brings together postminimalist composer Daniel Lentz with vocalist and sound artist Ian William Craig for an album that embraces erosion and the fertility of the loam left behind. A document of shared transformation, Lentz’s elegant piano figures and Craig’s trembling tenor are wilted, warbled, and looped through manipulated tape machines in a real time composition that evokes a strange warmth and layered beauty. 

Experience the first offering from In a Word, “Poire,” with a video directed by Eli Welbourne taken from the upcoming documentary on Craig and Lentz, below:

Engage. Change. Heal. Now.

rvng echoes the call to reverse the history of abuse, neglect, and oppression of black people in america. we recognize the complicity in silence and stand in solidarity with all black lives ~

we pledge our support to fellow agents of change against state sponsored violence. mass incarceration and the over criminalization of black people must end once and for all ~

financial contributions make an immediate impact, and we encourage you to research these and many other resources:

http://www.ally.wiki/

beyond personal contributions, rvng and commend have pledged $1000 today to national bail out + communities united for police reform ~

this friday, bandcamp will again waive their site fees. we pledge to redistribute our label’s income portion of all sales towards individual black artists living in nyc, working with black community leaders to identify and reach those individuals ~

change can happen hand in hand, and the responsibility of white-owned businesses to step the eff up remains a priority ~

we will continue this work by converting commend to a 501(c) non-profit and supporting our network to nyc’s black artist community in the meantime. please be in touch if you feel compelled

Kate NV – Plans


Today Kate NV shares “Plans”, the third offering from her forthcoming album Room for the Moon. The video, directed by Kate and Pavel Kling, is best described as a hallucinatory news report.

In Kate’s own words: “The song is about how everything constantly collapses and changes, that nothing is really clear and that it is impossible to plan everything or anything.” Written before the present world crisis, the song’s surreal dissociation as presented through Kate’s pop proficiency is prescient of this moment if not peculiar:  “Who would tell us what it was like before it turned to this. Who would outline the plans.”
