Our new EP, Innocence, will be released on Friday 15th December.
During our 2016 tour we stopped off at studios in Newcastle and London to record several hours of improvised music. The most promising lumps of sound from those sessions were excavated at the start of 2017 and Innocence is the first fruit to be assembled from the wreckage.
Four new songs for you: Innocence, Hot Strings of Love, Like A Dog and These Animal’s Eyes.
Innocence is intended as the first of two related EPs. A virtual ‘Side A’ of an album, with ‘Side B’ – a sister-EP – to follow in 2018. The cover artwork is by Harumi Foster.
Also due for release soon (on the 21st December as usual) will be this year’s Winter Solstice song. For those of you who dont’t know – for the past seven years we have issued a new, longform piece of music every 21st of December. Every year presents a new creative challenge for us to bend and manipulate our sonic muscles for you in new and innapropriatly physical ways.
All of the Winter Solstice tracks so far can be found here:
…Which is where the new one will live after it has hatched from its moist egg.
One more thing… There’s a couple of new(ish) shirts available from our merch store. The Lucky Beast shirt features Andrea Voisey’s amazing cover art from last year’s album and can be found here. And the Sonny Sharrock Was Right shirt can be found here, with all the proceeds going to the Youth Music charity.
More news soon.
We are pregnant with twins. We shall very soon be releasing an EP called ‘Innocence’ with another, as yet untitled EP to follow soon after. If you would like to assist the birth, please consider subscribing to us on Bandcamp.
You’ll be helping to fund the release of these and future sonic artifacts and in return you’ll get our entire discography, every new thing we make as it’s released, LOTS of exclusive music unreleased elsewhere and generous discounts on merch.
And our undying love.
We have just recently published the second in our ongoing series of subscriber-exclusive releases.
‘Descension‘ was recorded live at the Vinyl Cafe, Deptford at the end of our March tour. To hear it (and everything else we have ever done or will do) join us as a loyal subscriber and know in your brain that you are contributing to the ongoing survival of our doings.
A little background information on ‘Descension’. On the 28th March 2016 we played a show in the basement of the Vinyl Cafe in Deptford, a truly excellent record shop and general hub of cultural love. In the abscence of a support band we elected to play two sets: one completely improvised/instrumental set and, after a short break for “human activity”, a performance of our latest album, ‘Lucky Beast’ in its entirety. Both sets were recorded direct to digital multitrack. Improvisation is a core part of The Infinite Three’s working process but this was the first time we had chosen to make music in this way in front of an audience. The additional electricity in the air from the bodies and brains of the crowd seemed to assist us in our aim to levitate towards the great cosmic womb that hovers perpetually above us. In short, we were extremely pleased with the result. We hope you find ‘Descension’ to be a rewarding and enveloping listen.
There’s a review of Lucky Beast at the German music zine Plattentests. I’m told it’s very positive indeed but my German skills are non-existent!
If anyone can do a better job than Google in translating this for us, drop us a line! “Break revolutionize the piece completely and always let run backwards before the walls”
Spill Magazine have featured the song Partisans from Lucky Beast. Take a listen at the link below. This song features the mighty Tom Jackson on saxophone.
