Deluxe Artwork incl. Artwork Cards"The title Villains isn't a political statement. It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It's simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine and what actually happened. Everyone needs someone or something to rail against-their villain-same as it ever was. You can't control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go." -Joshua Homme Seit ihrem letzten Album ist viel passiert. Nachdem die QOTSA über 100 Shows zu ".Like Clockwork" gespielt hatten, ging Josh Homme mit Iggy Pop ins Studio um dessen Album einzuspielen. Neben den Songs für das Iggy Pop-Album skizzierte er auch immer wieder neue Queens Of The Stone Age Songs. Ende 2016 ging Josh endlich wieder mit seiner eigenen Band ins Studio, um das siebte Album der Band aufzunehmen. Produziert wurde "Villains" von Mark Ronson (der Mark Ronson? Ja, der Mark Ronson), co-produziert von Mark Ranking und gemixt vom Soundmagier Alan Moulder. Josh schwebte bei den Aufnahmen nichts weniger vor als eine neue Definition ihres Sounds. "The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question 'what do we sound like now?' If you can't make a great first record, you should just stop-but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn't evolve, you become a parody of that original sound." Dabei wurde Mark Ronson zu dem fehlenden Puzzleteilchen, das das in sich geschlossene Ökosystem der Queens Of The Stone Age kreativ aufmischen sollte. Er selber beschreibt die Arbeit an "Villains" so:"Queens are and have always been my favorite rock n roll band ever since I walked into Tower on Sunset and bought Rated R in the summer of 2000, so it was incredibly surreal to be welcomed into their secret, pirate clan-or the 'jacuzzi' as Josh likes to call it. I also knew that my super fandom alone would not keep me in the jacuzzi. There were moments during the making of the album in which i was aware i was watching my musical heroes craft something that was sure to become one of my favorite moments on any Queens album. And to have some part in that felt like being in a dream--a very heavy, dark, wonderful dream."

Limited editoin box set including the album on double LP and CD plus a six track demo LP, digital download code and set of Tarbox Road photographic prints. One copy per customer.Every Country's Sun takes two decades of Mogwai's signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distills it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock, and transcendental euphoria. Produced by psych-rock luminary Dave Fridmann, it's a structural soundscape built from stark foundations up; from a gentle, twinkling, synth-rock spectre to a solid, blown-out, skyward-thrusting obelisk. There's percussive, dream-state electronics (“Coolverine”), church organs as chariots of existential fire (“Brain Sweeties”), tremulous, foreboding bleeping – possibly from a dying android (“aka 47”). Their most transportive album yet, it also hosts their most fully realized art-pop sing-along of their storied history, “Party In The Dark,” a head-spinning disco-dream double-helix echoing New Order and The Flaming Lips, featuring Braithwaite's seldom-heard melodic vocals declaring he's “directionless and innocent, searching for another piece of mind”. This is music as a keep-out chrysalis, protective audio armor through exalting organs and portentous, dissonant guitar fuzz warping at the edges, bending the world inside-out into a reality in which you'd much rather live. The last three songs ascend into explosive exorcism, closing with the colossal “Every Country's Sun,” its searching intensity whooshing towards infinity in a dazzling cosmic crescendo.

Great Many Arrows' is the 6th studio album from Damien Dubrovnik, the Danish duoof Loke Rahbek and Christian Stadsgaard. It is also the 200th release on their PoshIsolation label, marking 8 years for both the label and project. The label's inceptioncame with Damien Dubrovnik's debut album, and since then the two have beeninseparable. Without Damien Dubrovnik there would most likely have been no PoshIsolation, and vice versa.'Great Many Arrows' is undoubtedly a high point in the varieddiscographies of both Rahbek and Stadsgaard. It is the most realized DamienDubrovnik recording to date, and a standout in Posh Isolation's troves.As a record,'Great Many Arrows' manages to translate the intensity of the duo's oftenunrestrained live shows in to carefully crafted studio productions. Unlike the pair'searlier and largely electronic recordings, the compositions on 'Great Many Arrows'set organs, cellos, violas, wind and other acoustic instruments against the backdrop ofan electronic landscape.The new toolset is as apparent on the surface as it is in theenclosed detail, taking the project further from its noise roots than it has ever been.This is not to say that Rahbek and Stadsgaard have traded ferocity for formalconstraint. It is rather the opposite. While 'Great Many Arrows' is certainly the pair'smost 'musical' work to date, its veneer of accessibility might also make it their mostterrifying.The strength of the recording lies here in the interaction between themelodic, acoustic instrumentation and the bulldozing electronics. Moments of beautyand light are transfigured into utter chaos and rage, the mesmerising change anexpression of the equal and opposite form's natural sway as it beckons and slipsbetween its own passing.'Great Many Arrows' takes its name from a historic archerycompetition in Kyoto, Japan, in which archers would shoot as many arrows as possiblefor a 24 hour period. On April 26, 1686, Wasa Daihachiro from Kishu successfullyshot 8,133 out of 13,053 arrows, averaging 544 arrows an hour, or 9 arrows a minute,becoming the record holder.

Die Auferstehung einer Krautrock-Legende: Erstes Album seit 32 Jahren.Im Juni 2014 wurde das bemerkenswerte, selbstbetitelte Bröselmaschine-Debüt aus dem Jahr 1971 vomNew Yorker Musikblog "Pigeons & Planes" auf Platz 9 der 20 wichtigsten Krautrockalben aller Zeiten gewählt.Ob das die Duisburger Band dazu motivierte, wieder ins Studio zu gehen? Wie auch immer: 32 Jahre nachihrem letzten Album "Graublau" von 1985 kehrt das Urgestein der Krautrockszene mit einem phänomenalenAlbum zurück ins Rampenlicht. Abwechslungsreich, gefühlvoll und gekonnt setzt die Formation um Gitarren-Guru Peter Bursch auf "Indian Camel" ihren Liederzyklus in Szene. Dabei gelingt es der Band mitSängerin/Model Liz erneut, eine Duftmarke für die Ewigkeit zu setzen. Als Gastmusiker hören wir dasehemalige Bandmitglied Helge Schneider am Saxofon sowie den indonesischen Star-Perkussionisten NippyNoya.

Nach "Encyclopedia" (2014) und einer daran anschließenden dreijährigen Pause meldet sich Frontmann undBandgründer Jonny Pierce mit einem neuen Drums-Album zurück. Wie er vorab verriet, ist "AbysmalThoughts" genau die Platte geworden, die ihm die Liebe an Musik zurückgab und die er schon die ganze Zeitin seinem Herzen trug. Man müsste wohl anfügen: In seinem gebrochenen Herzen, schließlich sind wir hierbei The Drums, und die sind ohne den ganz großen Herzschmerz doch gar nicht möglich! "AbysmalThoughts" enthält ein Dutzend Song, die Pierce nicht nur selbst geschrieben, sondern konsequenterweiseauch komplett alleine eingespielt hat, hauptsächlich in Los Angeles. Lediglich der Produzent JonathanSchenke (Parquet Courts, Mannequin Pussy) assistierte ihm im Studio. Mit anderen Worten wurde aus demeinstigen Quartett - vom "NME" einst als "New Yorks coolste Band" geadelt - eine Einmannshow.Soundtechnisch bleibt sich Pierce jedoch treu, der tanzbare Beach-Pop, die hyperdramatische Emotionalitätder Smiths, der lärmende Klapper-Punk britischer DIY-Bands des Jahres 1979, die schnellen Rhythmen undseine flehende Stimme finden sich auch auf dem vierten Drums-Studioalbum wieder.

Neuauflage auf rotem Vinyl mit unbespielter B-Seite!Das neue Projekt von Gisbert zu Knyphausen und Moses Schneider (Produzent von u.a. Tocotronic, Beatsteaksund Annenmaykantereit).Es war die Rede davon, dass Tino Hanekamps Roman "Sowas von da" verfilmt werden sollte. Moses Schneider bekam davon Wind und fragte dendünnen Mann, ob er Lust hätte, am Soundtrack dafür mitzuschreiben. Die Band aus dem Buch brauchte Lieder. Wie das so ist, vergingen drei, vier Jahre,einige Songs entstanden, aus dem Film wurde (noch) nichts. Also gründete man eine eigene Band, die Lieder waren ja da. Zwei sind aber keine Band, alsofragten sie Gisbert zu Knyphausen, ob er mal im Studio vorbeikommen wolle, es gäbe was zu singen. Das hat er dann getan und ihm gefielen die Lieder.Aber eine ,richtige" Band mit Live-Auftritten und Album wollte man eigentlich gar nicht sein. Das Leben ist kompliziert. Schließlich traf man sich öfter inRestaurants als im Studio. Richtige Bands sind oft im Übungsraum. Moses, Gisbert und der dünne Mann nannten sich dann Husten und schraubten ihreLieder aus allen möglichen Überbleibseln der letzten zwanzig Jahre fertig zusammen. Hier ein Schlagzeug-Take, zu dem es kein Lied gab, dort ein Sample,das niemand wollte; eine übrig gebliebene Nummer vom dünnen Mann, ein Playback von Moses, neue Melodielinien von Gisbert. Mehr war das nicht.Moses und der dünne Mann kennen sich seit sie vor zwanzig Jahren die erste Viktoriapark-Platte zusammen aufgenommen haben. Gisbert und Mosesüber ihre Arbeit am Olli-Schulz-Album "Save Olli Schulz". Dann kam unweigerlich die Frage: Wenn nicht Platte, wenn nicht live, was dann? Also eine EP.Jedes Jahr eine. "Kapitän Platte" aus Bielefeld wollten die EP pressen lassen. Zum Aufklappen, mit farbigem Vinyl. Digital erscheint die erste EP beiKomma/Vikram, dem Viktoriapark-Label. Ach ja, es hat der Band so viel Spaß gemacht, dass die nächste EP ist schon fast fertig ist, ebenso dieübernächste.

The Early Days verspricht rohen Indie-Sound wie er klingt noch bevor er durch den Remix-Wolf gedreht wurde. Klar wie der Schnaps, den man dazu trinkt, und ungezwungen wie eben diese Bands, die wir immer noch lieben. Morrissey ist immer noch wichtig und The Libertines immer noch wild. Diese Nacht ist das Kapitel "1980-2010" im Geschichtsbuch zu Brit Pop, New Wave und Post Punk. Let´s dance to Joy Division. Echt jetzt! Wir spulen u.a. zurück auf 80, drücken Play und kompilieren die Wiederentdeckung. Tracks, die uns in den wichtigen Lebenslagen zur Seite standen, schön zusammengefasst in ein neues Spannungsfeld, ohne dabei die juvenile Exzentrik zu verlieren. "The Early Days" steht auf der Verpackung, die absurderweise kaum zeitgenössischer sein könnte. 8-Loch-Docs und Nietengürtel gehen gerade sowieso bestens und so treffen sich auch bei den "The Early Days" Tanzabenden, die seit 3 Jahren, neben dem großen Affen, euphorisch, siegessicher durch die Clubs ziehen, eher die hippen Kids als die Ü30-BritPopper. Die Party zur Compilytion wird erfolgreich von der renommierten King Kong Kicks Community veranstaltet. Und das in mehr als 20 großen, deutschen Städten. Aufgelegt wwerden unvergeßliche Gitarren-Hits von Bands wie: The Cure // The Smiths // Pulp // The Libertines // Joy Division // Blur // Pixies // New Order // Bloc Party // The Kooks // Ther Cure // Maximo Park // Iggy Pop // Franz Ferdinand und vielen mehr! Mit Song Shouts/Linernotes von Tocotronic, Drangsal, Abay und anderen.

Since 2000, St. Louis YOWIE has been perfecting a unique form of progressive rock that incorporates complex polyrhythms and guitar dissonance. Operating within its own unique idiom, Yowie rejects rock music s typical foundation of common time signature and standard melodic structures. Their third album, Synchromysticism, the first with guitarist Christopher Trull (formerly of Grand Ulena), marks a new level of ambition in terms of conceptual complexity, synthesizing opposing compositional approaches into a distinctive style that simultaneously elicits feelings of euphoria, perplexity, dread... and an inexorable urge to dance.

“Soft Sounds From Another Planet” von Japanese Breakfastist weniger ein Konzeptalbum über die Entdeckung desWeltraums denn ein zum Leben erwecktes Moodboard. Überzwölf Songs hinweg begibt sich Michelle Zauner in eineSoundlandschaft, die sie selbst erstellt und derenQuadratmeterzahl ausreicht, um sämtliche ihrer Einflüsseabzubilden. Es gibt Songs auf „Soft Sounds From Another Planet“,die an den Pathos der Balladen von Roy Orbison erinnern,während andere problemlos als kinematische Verarbeitung einerTotale aus „Blade Runner“ sein könnten. Die Stimme von Zaunerist raumgreifend: In einer Sekunde singt sie eine Ode an dieVergangenheit, in der nächsten erzählt sie fast roboterhaft eineLiebesgeschichte mit Texten, die persönlicher und mehr auf denPunkt sind als je zuvor. Wenn „Psychopomp“ eine Genre-übergreifende Einführung in die Welt von JapaneseBreakfast war, dann katapultiert dieses visionäre zweiteAlbum des Projekt in ungeahnte Höhen.

Powerflo is a rap metal band formed in 2017, consisting of Cypress Hill rapper Sen Dog, guitarists Billy Graziadei (Biohazard) and Roy Lozano (ex-downset.), bassist Christian Olde Wolbers (ex-Fear Factory) and Worst drummer Fernando Schaefer.The band's history can be traced back to the 1990's, where the band members would often collaborate - such as Cypress Hill and Biohazard performing on the famous Judgment Night soundtrack, or Wolbers and Lozano appearing in Cypress Hill albums Skull & Bones and Stoned Raiders. In 2015, Lozano played some demos to Sen Dog on a ride to the airport, setting the foundations for Powerflo.The name of the band comes from a comment Roy Lozano made about Sen Dog's vocal tracking for the upcoming album. Describing their sound as a "cross between Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Cypress Hill", they first unveiled the group on March 1, 2017 while recording their self-titled debut album. On May 2 2017, they released the first single "Resistance" via Metal Injection. In launching the first single, Sen Dog indicated that this is a long term project and that future Powerflo albums will be released after their self-titled is released.

Everyone needs someone or something to rail against-their villain-same as it ever was. You can't control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go." -Joshua Homme Seit ihrem letzten Album ist viel passiert. Nachdem die QOTSA über 100 Shows zu ".Like Clockwork" gespielt hatten, ging Josh Homme mit Iggy Pop ins Studio um dessen Album einzuspielen. Neben den Songs für das Iggy Pop-Album skizzierte er auch immer wieder neue Queens Of The Stone Age Songs. Ende 2016 ging Josh endlich wieder mit seiner eigenen Band ins Studio, um das siebte Album der Band aufzunehmen. Produziert wurde "Villains" von Mark Ronson (der Mark Ronson? Ja, der Mark Ronson), co-produziert von Mark Ranking und gemixt vom Soundmagier Alan Moulder. Josh schwebte bei den Aufnahmen nichts weniger vor als eine neue Definition ihres Sounds. "The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question 'what do we sound like now?' If you can't make a great first record, you should just stop-but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn't evolve, you become a parody of that original sound." Dabei wurde Mark Ronson zu dem fehlenden Puzzleteilchen, das das in sich geschlossene Ökosystem der Queens Of The Stone Age kreativ aufmischen sollte. Er selber beschreibt die Arbeit an "Villains" so:"Queens are and have always been my favorite rock n roll band ever since I walked into Tower on Sunset and bought Rated R in the summer of 2000, so it was incredibly surreal to be welcomed into their secret, pirate clan-or the 'jacuzzi' as Josh likes to call it. I also knew that my super fandom alone would not keep me in the jacuzzi. There were moments during the making of the album in which i was aware i was watching my musical heroes craft something that was sure to become one of my favorite moments on any Queens album. And to have some part in that felt like being in a dream--a very heavy, dark, wonderful dream."

Eines Morgens im April 2016 keimte bei Josh Haden, Bassist und Sänger von Spain, der Wunsch auf, in LosAngeles Konzerte zu geben. Also kontaktierte er den Besitzer einer Bar in L.A. Downtown namens The LoveSong. Schnell wurde man sich einig, und fortan traten Spain jeden Dienstagabend von Mai 2016 bis März2017 in der Liebesbar auf. In dieser Zeit wurde die Band, zu der neben Haden noch Kenny Lyon (Gitarre),Shon Sullivan (Keyboard, Gitarre) und Danny Frankel (Drums) gehören, von diversen Gästen begleitet, unteranderem dem Grammy-nominierten Jazzgitarristen Bill Frisell, dem Sun-Ra-Schlagzeuger Craig Haynes, derViolinistin und Sängerin Petra Haden, dem Best-Coast-Gitarristen Bobb Bruno, dem MultiinstrumentalistenZander Schloss (Circle Jerks), dem ehemaligen Macy-Grey-Saxofonisten Matt DeMerritt und Lili Haydn ander Violine.

Every Country's Sun takes two decades of Mogwai's signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distills it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock, and transcendental euphoria. Produced by psych-rock luminary Dave Fridmann, it's a structural soundscape built from stark foundations up; from a gentle, twinkling, synth-rock spectre to a solid, blown-out, skyward-thrusting obelisk. There's percussive, dream-state electronics (“Coolverine”), church organs as chariots of existential fire (“Brain Sweeties”), tremulous, foreboding bleeping – possibly from a dying android (“aka 47”). Their most transportive album yet, it also hosts their most fully realized art-pop sing-along of their storied history, “Party In The Dark,” a head-spinning disco-dream double-helix echoing New Order and The Flaming Lips, featuring Braithwaite's seldom-heard melodic vocals declaring he's “directionless and innocent, searching for another piece of mind”. This is music as a keep-out chrysalis, protective audio armor through exalting organs and portentous, dissonant guitar fuzz warping at the edges, bending the world inside-out into a reality in which you'd much rather live. The last three songs ascend into explosive exorcism, closing with the colossal “Every Country's Sun,” its searching intensity whooshing towards infinity in a dazzling cosmic crescendo.

One of the most acclaimed British rockers from the 1980's, this legendary band formed in Liverpool in 1978 and were forefathers of the neopsychedelic movement. Their line up consisted of vocalist Ian McCulloch, guitarist Will Sergeant, bass player Les Pattinson and drummer Pete de Freitas, eventually replacing the original drum machine.The band's cult status eventually waned with mainstream success in 1983 after they scored a UK top 10 hit with ''The Cutter'' and attendant album Porcupine which hit #2 in the UK. 1984's album Ocean Rain is considered a landmark post-punk release, featuring the lead single ''Killing Moon.''The band split in 1988 but regrouped in 1997, releasing an album in 2014 that was their first UK Top 40 entry since 1999. The band's popularity never quite made the same impact in the US as it did in Europe so they are ripe for rediscovery for anyone interested in bands such as Suede, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Blur, Interpol and Oasis.This brand new collection of their legendary live material recorded in Sweden in 1985 includes classic Rock-N-Roll covers of legendary tunes by the Doors, Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground, Television and more available on vinyl for the first time. Many of the tracks from Sweden were recorded live for Swedish National Radio at the Karen Club. Also included here is a legendary extended version of ''Do It Clean'' recorded live in concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 1983.

The newly shorn Oh Sees waste no time in racing headlong into nightmarish battle with the mighty Orc, and wouldn’t ya know it, they’ve clawed even farther up the ghastly peak last year’s A Weird Exits stormed so satisfyingly. The band is in tour-greased, anvil on a balance beam, gut-pleasingly heavy form, nimbly braining with equal dashes of abandon and menace on this fresh batch of bruisers and brooders, hypnotically stirred into to the cauldron of chaos you’ve come to expect from, ahem, Oh Sees. Fresh blood Paul Quattrone joins Dan Rincon to form a phalanx of interlocking double drums, alternately propelling and fleet footing shifting ground to pinion Dwyer’s cliff-face guitars to the boogie. Tim Hellman keeps it swinging like a battle-axe to the eyebrows. The tunes veer towards the violence of their live shows, with a few tasty swerves into other lanes… heavy to lush, groovy to stately… throughout it remains sinister in its swaggering skulk, manic in its fuzz-fried fugues… they hit all the sweet spots the heads foggily remember, and there’s plenty to sweat over if you just hopped into the sauna. Ew. More evil…more complex… more narcotic… more screech…. more blare…. more whisper… there’s even more Brigid. Less “Thee”, but more of everything else.

Guided By Voices is on a roll. One could argue that GBV is never not on a roll, that Robert Pollard’s output plows past the word “prolific” like prolific is standing still in a snowbank; and that’s true, but this new version of the band (Doug Gillard, Bobby Bare Jr, Mark Shue, Kevin March) has given Pollard new tools to complement his song-hammer. Thus, ergo, quod erat demonstrandum: roll. Hot on the heels of the smothered-in-plaudits double album August By Cake comes this hot and heavy fifteen-tune long player, a melody-dense thwack to the earholes that will both energize and deplete your body of its remaining music-appreciation enzymes. Recorded by the band in New York, and by Pollard in Ohio, How Do You Spell Heaven capitalizes on the current incarnation’s tour-buffed shine without sacrificing eternal verities such as but not limited to: off-kilter rhythmic jolts; krazy chords; purposefully imperfect harmonies; and fragmented structures that start and stop on a coin of small denomination and go somewhere else, and quickly.

Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band’s gorgeously cinematic debut album. After the phenomenal online break-out success of “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby”, from the band’s debut EP 1, the Brooklyn transplant (originally from El Paso) wanted to project his worldview on to a bigger screen, a broader canvas. As Greg explains, “This is like the novel or feature-length version of Cigarettes. I wanted it to feel like a complete work, where some of the imagery repeats – like it’s all in the same world. It’s very much a fulfilment of the feelings in the short works.”

Transgressive Records release Bruise Blood: Reimagining Steve Reich's ‘Music for Pieces of Wood’, a collaboration between Polica, an electronic pop band based in Minneapolis, and s t a r g a z e, a Berlin-based chamber orchestra interested in pop and electronics. The release sees them reinterpret Steve Reich’s 1973 composition Music For Pieces Of Wood. The first of a pair of records from this collaboration, this release sees them take minimalist pioneer Steve Reich’s Music For Pieces of Wood corrupting its polyrhythms across a continuous twenty minutes of music, pushing the boundaries of both artists in a truly engrossing and transportative collaboration. The second release in the series, to follow in September on Transgressive Records, is a more song-based album, containing new material and inspired versions of unexpected pop songs, turned inside out to expose their essence. s t a r g a z e is an ever-evolving project, marrying modern composition with alternative attitudes and sounds. Transgressive Records started working with André de Ridder, co-founder of s t a r g a z e, on his arrangement of Terry Riley’s In C Mali with Africa Express – a project that sets the precedent for this new release with its radical, yet perhaps definitive, performance of a minimalist classic. The first official s t a r g a z e release on Transgressive was a pioneering re-interpretation of the music of the alternative experimentalists Deerhoof Deerhoof Chamber Variations which led to the fulsome, and controversial takeover of the BBC Proms for the David Bowie night, which saw s t a r g a z e collaborate with artists as diverse of John Cale, Elf Kid, Mark Almond and Anna Calvi amongst others to celebrate the astounding, at times contradictory, music of this soulful, inspirational polymath. Poliça have themselves blazed a trail across the modern musical landscape – across their three albums of dark, personally political pop they have distorted the conventions of production and form to create deeply affecting songs that claw into your consciousness.

Shortly before Christmas 1984, the core songwriters, Genesis P-Orridge and Alex Fergusson, of underground arts collective PsychicTV quietly released a limited edition record containing sketches and ideas for songs. Some songs would become later fully-realizedarrangements, some abandoned and others were just covered in praise of their creator. The record, in recognition of its seasonalrelease, was simply titled "A Pagan Day" and would capture the intimate songwriting sessions that were prevalent during crucial timein the band's career. In classic Psychic TV fashion, rumors and myths surround the album's creation. Most have suggested that it wasrecorded in a single session over a cup of coffee on a lone 4-track cassette recorder above an old YMCA building in London, thoughlater revealed that the recordings were from various sessions over the course of a couple years prior to the record's release. Afterquickly pressing the songs to vinyl, the record was origina lly only available through Rough Trade for a few hours on December 23,1984 and pressed on picture discs, which adorned a photo of P-Orridge's first born, Caresse, in exactly 999 copies.

Beginning in 1982, the conceptual audiovisual troupe labeled Psychic TV set out on a multimedia journey filled with subversion,liberation and rebellion. While the members' previous works took root in the counterculture zeitgeist of late '70s UK punk andconceptual art, it was no longer a question of how to rebel against authority, but rather how to carefully subvert it through collectiveinfiltration. Parallel to Psychic TV, its members formed the anti-cult faction Thee Temple of Psychick Youth, further propagating thePsychic TV message and vision. While the ensuing years saw Psychic TV's major label infection and record breaking live album releasebinge, it wasn't until 1988 that the band started to ready itself for a chart-friendly pop endeavor in the form of "Allegory & Self". Thiswould be the band's most notable and successful endeavor but tragically, it would be the final songwriting collaboration between POrridgeand Fergusson. The record's opening track "Godstar," a song gushing obsessive praise upon the fallen Rolling Stones memberBrian Jones, would give the album its most notable identity. "Godstar's" melodic hooks and haunting, Phil Spector-era lyrical chantgives into to all the hallmarks of a chart-topping hit. All in all "Allegory and Self" was a perfect storm of catchy pop melody along withsubversive counter-culture reference and occult leanings, packaged in a perfect bundle of underground hits and would stand alone asthe band's signature apex from the original '80s line-up.

Seit ihrer Gründung 2015 sind Sextile fester Bestandteil des Undergrounds von LosAngeles. Das Quartett wirft selbstbewusst sämtliche Konventionen aus dem Fenster,um zu einem eigenständigen Sound ohne Genregrenzen zu gelangen, in dem die roheEnergie des 77er Punk auf die komplexen Elemente des Postpunk und Synth-Wave derAchtziger trifft. ,A Thousand Hands", das erste Album von Sextile, war ganzcharakteristisch eine düstere und primitive Form des Rock'n'Roll; eine Mischung ausSurfpunk, frühem Industrial und Postpunk. Live beschwört die Band eine Energieherauf, als würde jedes Venue kurz vor dem Zusammenbruch stehen. Die L.A. Szenewar an Bord. Dann zog sich die Band ein paar Woche in einen Keller im Stadtteil EchoPark zurück und stieß mit ihrem zweiten Album ,Albeit Living" wieder an dieOberfläche. Das Album ist ein Testament der verbesserten Songwriting Skills der Bandund bezeugt eine Zeit, in der Sextile ihr kompositorisches Können unter die Lupenahmen: Der Synthesizer steht hier im Mittelpunkt und hat deutliche mehr Strahlkraftals noch auf dem Vorgängeralbum. Trotz des erhöhten Anspruches von ,Albeit Living"schafft es das Album, die alles überrollende Live-Energie der Band noch zuintensivieren. ,Albeit Living" zieht den Hörer vom ersten Ton an mitten hinein in dieschnellen Drumbeats, eindringlichen Synth-Hooks und ausreichend Gitarrenfeedback,um Kevin Shields von My Bloody Valentine vor Neid erblassen zu lassen.Energie und Leidenschaft implodieren zwischen den Bandmitgliedern, die zusammeneine Spielart des Post-Punk erschaffen, in der der herrliche Noise und das Feedbackvon Jesus & Mary Chain in der ,Psychocandy"-Ära auf die eisigen analogen SynthMelodien von Cabaret Voltaire, den Mythos von Public Image Ltd. und diedüsteren Soundlandschaften von Bands wie D.A.F. und Section 25 treffen.

Mit 17 kehrte er inden Kongo zurück, entdeckte die hyperdominante Rumba und beschloss, eigene musikalischeAusdrucksformen zu finden. Er lebte auf der Straße, schlief in verlassenen Häusern und verdiente sich etwasGeld als Tam-Tam-Spieler bei Beerdigungen. In den frühen 1980ern wurde er Mitglied der Band FamousBlack, die sich später in Bongo Folk und dann in Okwess (dt.: "Lebensmittel") umbenannte.

Kurt Vile and Steve Gunn collaborated on record in 2015 for their contributions to Three Lobed Recordings Parallelogram series. That previously ornate and limited title is now released in a nonlimited format standing along and outside of that prior collection. The two artists, originally connected by mutual friends and geographic proximity, have long pushed the others continued artistic development. Despite sharing many live stages over the years, this collaborative album represents the first time that the two have worked together in the studio. Viles side sees him recast tracks by John Prine (Way Back When) and Randy Newman (Pretty Boys, featuring some truly *electric* guitar flourishes from Gunn) as if they were KV originals. The theme of reinvention continues with Vile tearing through a solo banjo rendition of his Red Apples (originally from his God Is Saying This To You LP), retitled here as Red Apples For Tom Scharpling. Gunn takes on a late period Nico track, 60/40, and pulls a lysergic rocker out of the tracks goth-ish roots. The bulk of Gunns contribution is the epically winding Spring Garden, a track in the vein of some of his other longform guitar excursions. Featuring signature contributions from Vile and Mary Lattimore, this hypnotizing cut is unmistakably a new classic in Gunns catalog.

Debut album by Moon Diagrams, the solo recording project of Deerhunter cofounderand drummer Moses John Archuleta. Gradually pieced together over a tenyearperiod, it finds Archuleta processing various stages of love, loss and regenerationvia forlorn outsider pop, minimal techno and warm, weightless experimentation.Hymnal opener "Playground" has echoes of Eno and Grouper; lengthy workouts suchas "The Ghost and the Host" recall long-lost Harmonia outtakes; the bitter pill pop of"End of Heartache" has the scratchy guitar of New Order circa Brotherhood and thesquare pegness of Dazzle Ships-era OMD. Several songs are instrumental, while"Bodymaker" features Sian Ahern (Eaux, Sian Alice Group). Subtly grandiose andquietly epic, Lifetime of Love really does live up to its title: a hopeful and curiousbeginning makes way for a morose middle, before a bittersweet, optimistic end.

Jody Grind‘s zweite und bislang letzte Veröffentlichung „Far Canal“ ist inzwischen eines der begehrtesten und gesuchtesten Proto-ProgAlben.Der Klang der Band hatte sich im Vergleich zu ihrem Debüt zwar etwas verändert, dennoch bewegte sich das Ganze in einem sehrernst zu nehmenden britischen Prog-Rock Bereich. Die jazzigen Neigungen des Debuts sind überwiegend verschwunden, vorausgesetztman lässt das atypisch geschmackvolle Instrumental "Ballade für Bridget" außen vor. Bei "We Have Had It" und Teilen von "VegetableOblivion" sind klassisch melodische Einflüsse zu hören, die weitaus zugänglicher sind als alles, was auf dem ersten Album zu hören war.Es ist etwas mehr im Einklang mit Gruppen wie z.B. YES, obwohl Jody Grind dabei weitaus weniger fröhlich klingen. Diese Platte birgt eindonnerndes Wechselspiel zwischen Gitarren und Orgeln und bietet mit den aufeinanderfolgenden Tracks "Plastic Shit", "VegetableOblivion" und "Red Worms and Lice" drei echt Zappaesque Progressive-Hard Rock Stücke

With their unique fusion of “gypsy folk rock”, Holy Moly & The Crackers hail from the North East of the UK, and have a loyal, devoted and ever-increasing fan base. The band have built themselves an enviable reputation, pulling packed houses for their ferocious, visceral live shows, and now they are heading into heavier, gutsier waters with their new album Salem - produced by Matt Terry (The Enemy), mixed by Gethin Pearson (Mallory Knox) and mastered by Nigel Watson (Scissor Sisters); to be self-released on the band’s Pink Lane Records.The band has hardly drawn breath over the last two years - furiously touring and developing their live show, yet all the while creating new material, pushing at their sound. Lyrically, Salem is steeped in references to baroque, superstitious practice and the dark arts - tarot, memento mori, witchcraft and hallucination. It is perhaps fitting that the album was recorded in a studio that was once a medievalchapel above a family tomb. Musically, Salem marks a distinct change in direction to Holy Moly’spreviously recorded material. Less gypsy, more rock. Cold Comfort Lane is reminiscent of The Zutons with a touch of the Arctic Monkeys. Lead singer Ruth Patterson sings “She’s got you in her sights” with a definite Alex Turner-esque, lip-curling snarl. As well as Cold Comfort Lane, the songs Mary, Sugar, Easy As The Sunrise and Let Go are all heading in a “heavier, crunchier direction” (Clash).Ruth Patterson (violin/singer) brings class and elegance to the compilation. Aforementioned high-octane numbers are framed by a trio of her songs that both lyrically and musically ooze a maturity way beyond Ruth’s 25 years: Yours To Keep, with its Waits-esque New Orleans groove and The Wall, with itsorchestral grandeur reminiscence of Regina Spektor, are both acute metaphorical explorations of paranoia and anxiety. The title track, Salem uses the Salem witch trials of 1692 to comment on current world events: the persecution and marginalisation of minorities and the rise of xenophobia, homophobia, sexism etc. in the mainstream conscience.

Jon Tabakins einziges, 1975 veröffentlichtes Album teilt das Schicksal so vieler künstlerischer Werke: obwohlperfekt gemacht, fand es keine Käufer.

Tabakin wuchs in Kalifornien auf und spielte als Teenager in verschiedenen Bands. Mit19 erlitt er einen schweren Motoradunfall. Diese Erfahrung veränderte ihn. Tabakin zog sich zurück undkonzentrierte sich aufs Komponieren und Verfassen von Gedichten. Er schrieb auch viele Songs, die er nachBeendigung der High School herausbringen wollte. Dafür erwarb er einen 4-Spur-Rekorder. Gesang, Gitarreund Keyboard nahm er in seinem Appartement auf, Schlagzeug und Bass kamen später im Studio dazu. DasAlbum brachte er dann auf seinem eigenen Label Larrow heraus. Es wurde überhaupt nicht wahrgenommenund floppte. Entmutigt wandte er sich vom Pop ab und klassischen Klavierimprovisationen zu. Über Umwegelandeten Tapes seiner Aufnahmen bei RCA, die - Feuer und Flamme - das Ganze unbedingt veröffentlichenwollten. Der Deal scheiterte letztlich an der Weigerung Tabakins, auf Tour zu gehen.

Er ist die unverkennbare Stimme von Bad Religion. Dass Greg Graffin neben seiner Stammformation nochandere Interessen hat, beweisen nicht allein seine beiden Universitätsabschlüsse, sondern auchgelegentliche Solo-Veröffentlichungen. 2006 brachte Graffin das Album "Cold As The Clay" heraus, dessenLP-Nachpressung auf 180-Gramm-Vinyl erscheint. "Cold As The Clay" war nach "American Lesion" von 1997Graffins zweites Soloalbum - das so solo freilich gar nicht war, denn den Bad-Religion-Frontmann begleitetenim Studio drei Mitglieder der Weakerthans, eine Streichergruppe und die Sängerin Jolie Holland. Produziertwurde die innerhalb einer Woche eingespielte Scheibe von Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion). Der war es auch,der den Anstoß zum Album gab, als er eines Tages Graffin den Folksong "Omie Wise" auf einerAkustikgitarre spielen hörte. Er schlug ihm vor, ein Album mit alten Stücken aufzunehmen. "An diesem Tagwurde der Samen für dieses Soloprojekt gepflanzt", so Graffin. Entsprechend bietet "Cold As The Clay"neben einigen folkrockigen Eigenkompositionen vor allem Coverversionen von Folksongs und USamerikanischenTraditionals.

On his debut full-length album as Marker, New Orleans artist Mike Wilkinson eschews traditional pop catharsis for total submersion into a blue, luminous tunnel. Guitar, bass, and Wilkinson's voice are all treated through a variety of outboard and software effects, gently blurring into one another. Written and recorded between 2012 and 2015, the songs distill themes of isolation and connection, unreliable memory, identity, and the problem of infinite introspection and its relationship with reality. Filled with surprise melodic turns and evocative, vaporous production, "Marker" is an immersive work of otherworldly pop, encouraging its listeners to retreat inside themselves.

Often referred to as Sub Pop's "sister label," Hardly Art is an offshoot of Sub Pop designed to spotlight emerging talent. While the label's initial focus was local when it started up in 2007, over the past decade it has expanded beyond the Cascade region to welcome artists from all over the United States and abroad to a roster that has grown increasingly varied and eclectic, encompassing the sounds of garage rock, post-punk, surf rock, power pop, electronic, and other debatably useful genre descriptors. With the goal of cultivating a stable of vital, young, and relatively undiscovered bands, Hardly Art journeyed underground while a booming Sub Pop stayed above the surface (though both operate out of a shared office space in downtown Seattle). Since its inception and immediate worldwide reception as a paradigm-shifting, taste-making powerhouse (wink), Hardly Art has expanded its staff and broadened its purview along the way to include dubiously profitable ventures like reissues, EPs, one-off seven inches, and cassettes. Now, Hardly Art will try its hand at another experiment: a compilation to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Hardly Released: Bedroom Recordings, Demos, Rarities, Unreleased, and Widely Ignored Material-available June 2nd on cassette and digital formats-makes a strong case for Hardly Art's sonic diversity. Spanning a decade of recordings, the seventeen tracks of Hardly Released culls together a wide-ranging assortment of songs from the label's history, including a little-heard gem from Hardly Art's inaugural signing (Arthur & Yu) and a tune from Chastity Belt's I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone sessions, the label's most recent release. The full list of contributors includes Colleen Green, The Dutchess & the Duke, Fergus & Geronimo, Gazebos, Grave Babies, Hausu, Hunx & His Punx, IAN SWEET, Jacuzzi Boys, Jenn Champion, La Luz, The Moondoggies, Protomartyr, Seapony, and Shannon and the Clams. Bedroom recordings, demos, rarities, unreleased, and widely ignored material!
