Called his first proper full length album, James Prudhomme – AKA Suicideyear ‘s “Color the Weather” was released today (July 6th). It features collaborations with Georgia (Domino Recordings) and Canadian talent Casey MQ. All the artwork for the record is by Ezra Miller and Mikey Joyce. With the new release, the electronic recording artist adds 11 more tracks, influenced by shoegaze, cloud rap, future garage, witch house and other related subgenres he experiments with.
Earlier this year he performed at Moogfest 2018 and is planning an eight city tour to promote the album as well. Before the new album and recent appearances, he split time recently with collaborators Little Pain, Lil Ugly Mane and Yung Lean – playing at Berlin’s Berghain Club and recording for Oneohtrix Point Never’s Software label. Suicideyear feels the music on Color The Weather reflects this – the 808 weight of his local rap influences with the delicate and intimate flourishes of ambience and beauty – both vocal and textural – make Color the Weather a development from his previous beat based material whilst still containing all the hallmarks that have been present on his earlier work. He suggests to enjoy it as a continuous piece “despite the cliche”.
You can find it on LuckyMe Records and its also available on all major digital media.
