Moroccan Mountains Video

 

‘MOROCCAN MOUNTAINS’ – TAKEN FROM THE NEW ALBUM ELECTRIC TRIM OUT 15 SEPTEMBER

ROUGH TRADE INSTORES NEW YORK – 14 SEP / LONDON, EAST – 2 OCT

EUROPEAN TOUR ANNOUNCED FOR 2018

 

“… his finest solo LP” – MOJO ****
“… a welcome return” – Q
“… some great surprises” – Uncut *******
“Those seeking both instant gratification and the added pleasure of discovering more layers with every listen will appreciate Ranaldo’s latest.” – The Wire

 

Ahead of the release of a brand new album, his first for Mute, LEE RANALDO has shared the video for ‘Moroccan Mountains’, the opening track from Electric Trim, out on 15 September 2017.

 

In addition, Ranaldo has confirmed two Rough Trade instores, in New York tonight, and at London’s Rough Trade East on Monday 2 October plus a full band European tour for 2018. Before then, Ranaldo and the band will tour across North America in Oct / Nov this year. Further dates, including London and Berlin, will be announced in the coming weeks.

Ranaldo explains, Moroccan Mountains was begun sitting atop a blood-red carpet with yellow mountain shapes woven into it that was brought back from Fes on my first trip there in 1995. I was strumming the chords that became the song and those mountain shapes took me back to my first trip to the country and into the Rif Mountains where I first met and played with the Master Musicians of Jajouka, in their little hilltop village with no running water or electricity. Somehow those memories infused a certain ‘Moroccan spirit’ into the song. It was a magical time, for Morocco is a magical place, and I found myself transported back via the chords from my guitar. The opening spoken section about ‘falling into the crack between the window and the world’ is based on true events that took place on a train approaching Grenoble, France in 2015…”

 

Directed by Fred Riedel, the video is an excerpt from the forthcoming documentary on the making of the album, shot on location in Morocco, France, New York City, Berlin, and somewhere in the skies over the Tyrrhenian Sea in 2016.

 

The feature length documentary, HELLO HELLO HELLO : LEE RANALDO : ELECTRIC TRIM tracks the making of the album by filmmakers Fred Riedel and Jerry Fried. The documentary will be touring select film festivals in Europe and the US, screenings include the New Jersey Film Festival on album release day, Fonomo Music and Film Festival in Poland and Gig Harbor Film Festival in Seattle in October and London’s Doc‘n Roll Festival in Nov (venue to be announced, tickets on sale on 27 September).

Electric Trim was recorded in New York City and Barcelona in collaboration with producer Raül ‘Refree’ Fernandez and extends the work of Ranaldo’s solo canon, the most recent being his 2013 album, Last Night On Earth.

 

Through his collaboration with Fernandez, Ranaldo moves into some rich new sonic territories and production techniques, experimenting with electronic beats and samples alongside live players.

 

Ranaldo is a co-founder of Sonic Youth, a visual artist, producer and writer. In addition to Fernandez, he worked with several special guests on Electric Trim, including Sharon Van Etten who sings on six of the tracks and duets on ‘Last Looks’ and Kid Millions (aka Man Forever) as well as longtime friend and collaborator Nels Cline (Wilco). In addition, the album features Ranaldo’s band The Dust (fellow Sonic Youth member Steve Shelley, guitarist Alan Licht, and bassist Tim Luntzel).

 

Ranaldo collaborated with award winning New York author Jonathan Lethem (Motherless Brooklyn / The Fortress of Solitude) for lyrics on six of the songs, including ‘Thrown Over The Wall’, and the American artist, Richard Prince, who previously painted the sleeve for Sonic Youth’s 2004 album Sonic Nurse, created the artwork for the album.
