Josephine Foster - Fairy Faithful Harmony Colored Vinyl Edition
Josephine Foster
Fairy Faithful Harmony Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Fire)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Glaube und Fügung, Schicksal und Hingabe, dunkle Nächte und schummrige Lichter. Themen die Josephine Foster auf diesem vierteiligen Doppelalbum erforscht. Dem Ruhm ihrer Stimme folgen Refrains über geflügelte Wesenheiten (und einem Space Shuttle), die ein Labyrinth von Spirituals auf- und absteigen lassen: rituelle Gebete, Bluesklagen, jungfräuliche Hymnen und jubelnde Segnungen. Die Ränder der Naturwelt sind rotierende Kulissen, von denen aus unsere Erzählerin auf symbolischen Abgründen sitzt oder durch den trostlosen, schneebedeckten Wald schlendert und ewige Themen von Sterblichkeit und Moral erforscht, unter dem Mond und im gelegentlichen Dialog mit einem mysteriösen Herrn der Liebe, einer mehrdeutigen mystischen Gestalt. Begleitet von Gitarre, Klavier, Orgel, Harfe und Autoharfe, greift dieser Zyklus von 18 neuen Songs auf verschiedene Facetten von Fosters anachronistischem Werk zurück (die esoterischen Balladen von ,This Coming Gladness", die nativen Rhythmen von ,Blood Rushing", schlafwandlerischen Walzer von ,I'm a Dreamer", der Shaker-Primitivismus von ,Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead You"). Himmlischer Humor und verheerende Unschuld werden mit Beiträgen von Victor Herrero (Leadgitarren), Gyda Valtysdóttir (Cello), Chris Scruggs (Pedalstahl), Jon Estes (Bass) sowie Mitgliedern von The Cherry Blossoms und anderen geliefert. Aufgenommen, inszeniert und gemischt von Andrija Tokic in seinem Nashville Bomb Shelter Studio, gemastert von John Baldwin, und produziert von Josephine selbst.

Genre:Film / TV
It’s 1932 and Danish film director Carl Theodor is making a movie of a grim tale for both French and German audiences. To get over the language barrier he decides to have the majority of dialogue on silent movie title cards.Imagine the scene, you’re sleepy, you’re in a strange house, you doze. You wake with as a man places a package on the table with a note instructing it should be opened only on his death. He vanishes.Inevitably you’re lured to a castle, the man is shot, you open the package, it’s a book about horrific demons called vampyrs. The castle is manned by servants - there are also two sisters (one with bite wounds, the other in a trance-like stupor), a doctor and an old woman complete the cast. There’s a blood transfusion to save one of the sisters followed by a dream like sequence where you’re buried alive. It’s a cliff hanger, we’ll leave it there…Some 70 years later, what’s needed is a band who used to rehearse above a cemetery in Malmo to play live on Hallowe’en at the Fantastisk Filmfestival, Lunds Stadsteater. One year to the day later, they release the music in a now super rare limited edition of 150 blood red cassettes.Now re-issued as a double vinyl package, ‘Vampyr’ is full of “eerie haunted ambience” (©The Guardian), an atmospheric and spaced out 78 minutes that galvanizes Moog, glockenspiel, zither and vibraphonette in a beautiful piece of claustrophobia, a timeless slice of suitably scary sound filled with an unnerving sonic vibe that sticks in the psyche.

LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Fire)
25,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Die neueste Postkarte von The Chills' epischer Reise ist ein Album über "Konsolidierung, Neugruppierung, Akzeptanz und Sterblichkeit", so Martin Phillipps, der Chef der Band. "Hoffentlich eine Art Carole King ,Tapisserie` für alternde Punks." Wow! Dürfen Rockbands anmutig alt werden und dabei die Welt und ihre Unzulänglichkeiten einschätzen? Ist es möglich, dem Offensichtlichen auszuweichen und etwas zu machen, das im Ton bittersüß, aber am Ohr harmonisch ist? Natürlich ist es das. Auf `Snow Bound' werden verlorene Helden beklagt, Beziehungen neu bewertet, Sühne gesucht, die Sterblichkeit überdacht und Fake News untergraben. Es ist ernsthaftes Zeug, die Gedanken eines dysfunktionalen Mittfünfzigers, der mit dem Altern ringt und herausfindet, dass die Post-Punk DIY Überzeugungen immer noch eine echte Stimme haben, die zwischen den Fans der frühen Jahre schwingt und die nun an die nächste Generation weitergegeben werden kann. Zum Vorgänger ,Silver Bullets" schrieb The Guardian: "Sie klingen fast wie die musikalische Verkörperung des Herbstes". Drei Jahre später schmiegt sich ,Snow Bound' herzlich in seinen eigenen Winter der Unzufriedenheit. Und das alles mit einem humorvollen melodischen Schwung sowie Martin Phillipps Gabe für die temperierte Tändelei von Strophe und Chor und diese wunderschönen euphorischen Orgelfüllungen.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Sampled on TV ads, lauded by critics and swooned over on the dancefloor,ESG's post-punk took out the grunge and polished the basics. 'Keep OnMoving' was released just over ten years ago to much praise (Q said it was"even better" than 2002's much loved 'Step Off'). ESG had been sparringpartners for PiL and early hip hop and four years after the 'Off', they were ontosomething new - rhythm as core, reflective storylines about relationshipmanagement, sensuality and insanity gather around the bass fix but they'remuch blurrier than the incessant beats. Inadvertently they unmask techno andglitch and leave out any kind of superfluous fluff. It's hard and temple throbbing.Turn it up. And keep moving.

Yellow Opaque Double Vinyl! Hater's powerful vulnerability and charm has seen them rise quickly through the ranks earning kudos from NPR (Austin 100), Stereogum (Best New Bands Of 2017), The Fader, BBC6 Music, BBC Radio 1 and more. Effortless and assured, the Scandi quartet drift eloquently into well-structured and stunning melodies. Resolute in their sound, 'Siesta' is the perfect soundtrack for that summer romance and the inevitable break up. Heartbreak has never sounded so sweet!. Produced by Joakim Lindberg (Yast and Hey Elbow) at Studio Sickan within old railway sheds outside of Malmö Sweden. Hater tackle their personal experiences of life, love and relationships yet through their shared songwriting there's a togetherness. Synth pop earworm 'It's So Easy' contrasts the slower paced 'I Wish I Gave You More Time Because I Love You' that blends beautiful sweeping sax from Inge Petersson Lindbäck. Hater "boast Marr-esque guitars and vocals reminiscent of fellow Swedes and The Concretes" (Norman Records) whilst having the pop sensibilities of The Chills, Alvvays, Snail Mail and Makthaverskan. "Hater's songs epitomize jangling grace as Caroline Landahl coos with maximum approachability." NPR "Their unique take on rock music feels familiar and lived-in, taking bits from indie-pop, post-punk and classic rock." Stereogum "Gorgeous, achingly bittersweet vocals, perpetually swaying between comforting and devastating." Gorilla Vs Bear

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
With one eye on the dancefloor and another on those sprawling existential questions’ (The Quietus),‘The Architect’ sees Jane Weaver evolving with an aero-lite melodicism, the drum heavy vivacious pop song evokes vivid images of early Modernist art, Archigram blue-prints with a rigid back-bone of Eames worthy construction. Directly inspired by Hilma af Klint’s séances, spiritualism and the science of anthroposophy that formed the artist’s abstract paintings, Weaver finds herself in a transformative state channelling her inner spirituality, it’s place within her music and the cosmos. Shifting perspectives with her meditative vocal explorations and oneiric flow on ‘Code’. Eight-minute psych-pop opus ‘Element’ is richly melodic replete with pulsating analogue synths, unrelenting motorik rhythms and incessant beats. The perfect antidote to those longing for more music since the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Modern Kosmology’, the release features title track alongside unreleased new tracks and a special remix by Finders Keepers’ Andy Votel.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
In der Welt der Neopsychedelia hält die Drone-Königin Hof. Bereits 2014 kam dieser mythische Ausflug in einen überwucherten Ideenwald, gespielt in motorischem Rhythmus. Jane Weavers "The Silver Globe" ist eine konzeptionelle Delikatesse - ein synth-befallenes, postapokalyptisches Prog-Pop-Opus, das auf fest bestickten, nichtlinearen, wiederkehrenden Themen basiert, inspiriert von esoterischen Geschichten, kosmischen Bildern und neu gefilterten vergangenen Erfahrungen. Seit diesen berauschenden Anfängen ist unsere Heldin in dunklere Zeiten gereist und wurde für ihre glorreiches ,Modern Kosmology" (Top-Album von 2017 - hier, da, überall) gefeiert. "Ein Album, das kultische Eckpfeiler zu einem schlanken und aufregend süchtig machenden Stück unheimlichen Pop verschmilzt", trompetete The Guardian. Mit von David Holmes koproduzierten Tracks, Gastauftritten der australischen Vintage Space-Rocker Cybotron, einem recycelten Stück eines Hawkwind-Tracks, einem komplizierten Damon Gough Gitarrensolo, einigen Suzanne Ciani Wellen und Postproduktion sowie Remix-Blumen von Andy Votel ist ,The Silver Globe" ein glänzend schön polierter Edelstein. Jetzt neu aufgelegt mit dem von Andy Votel aktualisiertem Artwork, so dass dieser kreative Meilenstein wieder gehört und gesehen werden kann, und dies unabhängig von New Age/Old Wave Präferenzen. Es ist laut The Quietus "ein groß angelegter Sprung in die kosmische Leere des zeitgenössischen Space Rock". "Als Kind der 1970er Jahre kann ich den Brüdern meiner Freunde für ihre Space-Rock-Plattensammlungen und Konzeptalbum-Coverhüllen danken, die ich stundenlang anschauen würde, dann meine erste Liebe zu Kate Bush, gefolgt von einer kräftigen Dosis Disco und Synthie-Pop. Ich schätze ,The Silver Globe" ist nur ein unterbewusst inspirierter Abdruck von den Dingen, die mich nie verlassen haben, verheiratet mit einer zufälligen Betrachtung eines alten polnischen Sci-Fi-Films, der so bizarr war, dass ich nicht aufhören konnte, darüber nachzudenken und so wurde er meine Muse...." - Jane Weaver.

Thethird in the four-part boxed set series, "Les Haricots Sont Pas Salé 1987-1991"sits between "The Architecture Of Language 1979-1982" and "Drive, He Said1994-2002". "Solid as the band can be, it's also likely to dissolve songs from thebottom up. For all Pere Ubu's uncertainty, the band isn't arbitrary; its music hasthe off-the-wall unity of a Marx Brothers routine," said Jon Pareles of The NewYork Times on "The Tenement Year". One year later and things were furtherobscured with "Cloudland" when they released "their industrial-strengthequivalent of a class Beach Boys album from musicians more familiar with factoriesthan surf." (Greg Kot, Chicago Sun Times). Then, in 1991, "Worlds In Collision"became "the most atmospheric, carefully sculpted recording in the band's 13-album catalog." (Tom Moon, Spin). Here we have Pere Ubu between 1987 and1991 with three phenomenal pop albums, together with the "The Lost Album", an11-track record of demos that sounds like they'd loosened the nut and bolts ofthe genre even further. Four of these tracks, "Around The Fire", "Down By TheRiver", "Like A Rolling Stone" and "Invisible Man" were recorded as demos for thealbum originally designed to follow "Cloudland". Referred to by the band as "TheLost Album" they are now joined with songs from "Cloudland" that wouldn't fit onthe original vinyl release due to the length limitations of vinyl.

"There is a calmness in its melancholy, a beauty in its blues. These are songs that see the mystical beyond the material, abstracted folk ballads awash in memory" ****MOJO. Forming out of a recording project via Scotland and Lancashire, the band first came together in 2015; 'I played in his band and he played in mine' composer and singer Emily Scott says of Rob St John. A natural move saw her similarly recruit Pete Harvey (King Creosote, The Leg) and Joe Smillie (Call To Mind). Inspired by an antique Victorian harmonium that eventually found its way from Northern Ireland to Scotland, Modern Studies' debut album well To Great', aptly named after an organ stop, was unusually written with the malfunctioning instrument at the centre of their songwriting. A stimulating approach that melds the old and new through their instruments, delicate harmonies and rich compositions that are steeped in traditional and contemporary folk music. The restrictive process even had their wheezy founding member, the harmonium, controlling the pitch as the intrepid band members tuned their tools accordingly. T+he quartet's songs are embedded in the sea and the landscape of the shoreline. Emily Scott's tender lead vocals soar over the sweeping cello, bellowing harmonium and gentle percussive crashes on 'Black Street', 'Bottle Green' and 'Sleep', while hidden in its depths Rob St John, experiments with tape loops that are buried within the layers of their orchestral arrangements. St John, known for his field recordings and art-science projects, cites as his guiding inspiration Brian Eno's experimentalism and pop sensibilities. Unfurling bucolic stories come with Scott's lyrics for each song. Includes an exceptional ode to Shirley Collins' rendition of traditional song 'Bold Fisherman' that featured on 'Shirley Inspired' compilation.

To get over the language barrier hedecides to have the majority of dialogue on silent movie title cards. Imagine the scene,you're sleepy, you're in a strange house, you doze. Inevitably you're lured to a castle,you open a package, it's a book about horrific demons called vampyrs. The castle ismanned by servants - there are also two sisters (one with bite wounds, the other in atrance-like stupor), a doctor and an old woman complete the cast. There's a bloodtransfusion to save one of the sisters followed by a dream like sequence where you'reburied alive. It's a cliff hanger, we'll leave it there.

Clocking up a decade since its initial release “Sno Angel Like You” will be reissued this September celebrating its ten year anniversary. Collaborating with Canadian Gospel Choir, Voice of Praises following a performance at 2003’s Ottawa Bluesfest where Howe was billed alongside gospel choirs. Howe experienced his own awakening of sorts and found himself discussing with the church director the possibility of recording together. A similar run of events ensued at the same festival and Howe would go on to meet folk singer Susan Odle. Recruiting along the way, Jim Bryson’s keyboard player and recording engineer Dave Draves was soon on board and would go on to record the album. Once in the studio, Howe met drummer Jeremy Gara (pre-Arcade Fire) and together they laid down the initial recordings of the album on guitar and drums using similar recording techniques to older Giant Sand. Recording seven new songs with the choir arranging vocals, they also covered three Giant Sand songs and three Rainer Ptacek tracks. The uplifting and soulful popular tenth solo record sees “the occasionally unassuming, semi-mumble of Gelb's voice contrast marvelously with the trained, primed-for-transcendence-quality singing of Voices of Praise. The double LP is pressed to 145g black vinyl and comes with printed inners, download postcard in a beautiful gatefold cover.

“It's a devastating debut...this album has struck me with a vengeance. Because it delivers such a powerful, complex and open-ended punch, it's almost impossible at such an early stage to explain why or how in full detail.” Melody Maker. / “I would be willing to sit down and argue that modern-day rock ‘n’ roll reached its peak in 1978 with Pere Ubu’s The Modern Dance and has declined ever since." Rolling Stone / “Peru Ubu’s full length debut fancies itself a fusion of musique concrete and The Stooges. Shrill and ugly it crystallises their original version of industrial rock” Uncut / ‘The Modern Dance’ is the first studio release from Pere Ubu set for reissue on Fire Records in August, 2015. Following their self-released first singles on Hearpen Records, the uncompromising complex debut has continuously stirred critics. Today the record is still as direct and powerful as it was first heard. Exploding onto the scene with a handful of releases behind them, Pere Ubu’s ‘The Modern Dance’ stunned the music world and quickly began appearing on ‘Most Influential’ album lists. Pere Ubu originally formed as a studio project drawing on a body of musicians who were involved in the Cleveland underground music scene that had, by August 1975, seemingly run its course. The main objective of the band at that time was to document their work and then disappear. Luckily for us they were on the cusp of changing the face of rock forever. For this reworking, Paul Hamann at Suma has transferred from the original 2-track analogue mix tapes to digital at the highest resolution available which, is at least four times the resolution of the original. The tracks have carefully been re-mastered by sonic architect Brian Pyle so as to capture the unique qualities within.
