Raime recorded live at Unsound Toronto


Raime debuted their Tooth live show earlier this year at the Unsound Toronto festival, with Tom Halstead on guitar, Valentina Magaletti on drums, and Joe Andrews on electronics. If you’ve already caught one of their handful of performances in this incarnation, then you know how devastating this trio is, and how deft – not to mention unlikely – their synthesis of post-hardcore rock dynamics and instrumentation with uncompromised soundsystem pressure is. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, then listen to these live recordings of ‘Coax’ and ‘Stammer’, recorded made at Unsound Toronto by NTS:

Upcoming Raime live dates:
25/08/16 Berlin, DE Berlin Atonal
23/09/16 Brussels, BE Bozar Electronic Arts Festival
08/10/16 Odense, DK Phono Festival
12/11/16 Utrecht, NL Le Guess Who?

Unsound 2014


Blackest Ever Black’s association with Krakow’s Unsound festival dates back to 2010, when Raime gave their debut live performance there. This year’s festival, which commenced yesterday (October 12), features two groups affiliated with the label: Killing Sound, who’ll be appearing as part of the Young Echo showcase on Saturday 16 October, and Ksiezyc, who perform at St. Katherine’s Church on Friday 15 October. Additionally, our friends Diagonal host a showcase on the Saturday with Powell, Russell Haswell and more. Also looking forward to seeing Richard Pinhas, DJ Funk, Zs, Deathprod and one or two others.
