The Foreign Exchange to Release Third Album This Fall (via Exclaim.ca)
Phonte, one half of acclaimed North Carolina rap duo Little Brother, has revealed in an Exclaim! interview that the third album from his Grammy-nominated side-project the Foreign Exchange will likely see a fall 2010 release.
Although he's promoting Little Brother's final album LeftBack, due out April 20, Phonte is hard at work on the yet-to-be-titled Foreign Exchange release with Dutch producer Nicolay. "Daykeeper" from The Foreign Exchange's sophomore album Leave It All Behind was recently up for a Grammy in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category.

"It feels really good to get that kind of recognition," says Phonte. "It lets you know that people are listening and that your peers are supporting what you do, so it's an honour."

The Foreign Exchange won't rest on Grammy laurels (via Creative Loafing Atlanta)

The Foreign Exchange won't rest on Grammy laurels (via Creative Loafing Atlanta)
Sleep is a luxury Phonte and Nicolay still can't afford.
Say what you will about the commercial excess of the Grammy Awards, for an artist, there's nothing more validating than receiving a nomination. It means even more for independents with no major-label backing. So when Phonte Coleman's wife woke him up to tell him that his alt/soul group The Foreign Exchange had received a Best Urban/Alternative Performance nod for the song "Daykeeper," he reacted like any exuberant artist would - he fell back asleep.

"Honestly, I had been working so much, it didn't hit me until I completely woke up," he laughs.

In The Lab With The Foreign Exchange (via Unique74)

I recently had the chance to catch up with the Grammy Nominated THE FOREIGN EXCHANGE. The collective have been making waves in the music scene and are setting a tone for many more great albums to come. They shared their process behind the magic of putting together Leave It All Behind to Nicolay's sojourn in Shibuya.

You guys are red hot and raising the bar. "Leave It All Behind" is in constant rotation in my mixes, the album is crazy nice (translation: its a really good record). What was the inspiration behind recording this album?

PHONTE: For me it was wanting to explore different kinds of music, doing something that I didn't have a chance to do up until that point. I wanted to stretch out and try something new.
