We’re psyched today to share “New Organ,” the first official single, and accompanying music video, from ‘The Glare Of Success,’ the upcoming new album from The Cradle. Much like the “A Thought That Deletes” music video from The Cradle’s previous album ‘Bag Of Holding,’“New Organ” is another creative audio/visual collaboration between Paco Cathcart (The Cradle) and Anina Ivry Block (Palberta). Video art and music combine to create an abstract and intimate whole, genuinely capturing the unique spirit of Paco Cathcart’s work. Watch below, or visit our YouTube page for more content from The Cradle, plus tons of others. Also available for listening on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
‘The Glare Of Success’ is available worldwide on April 12th, 2019 on Cassette & Digital formats. Available now for pre-order in our Shop. Also available on Bandcamp.

We are psyched today to deliver some great news – new music from The Cradle is here. Following up the acclaimed 2018 NNA debut ‘Bag of Holding,’ we are now happy to officially announce that ‘The Glare of Success’ is coming April 12th, 2019 on Cassette & Digital formats. For this release, The Cradle’s Paco Cathcart has taken an innovative approach to a follow-up album by extracting the isolated orchestral and vocal elements from his ‘Bag of Holding’ full-length, and used them as source material to create an entirely new song cycle. The sounds of Sammy Weissberg‘s lush orchestral arrangements and Palberta‘s vocal harmonies are recycled and remixed, using the sonic essence of dub music as inspiration to create a new set of rhythmically-driven electronic compositions. Cathcart’s natural talents in the mixing and editing process are on full display on this recording, creating a perfect companion album to the largely acoustic worlds of ‘Bag of Holding.’ Check out a sneak preview of the track “Giving Dub” on the album teaser below:
