Featuring Remastered Ok Computer, B-Sides and Three Never Before Released Tracks: “I Promise,” “Lift,” “Man Of War” .Rescued from defunct formats, prised from dark cupboards and brought to light after two decades in cold storage… Oknotok will be issued on June 23rd through XL Recordings, coinciding (roughly) with the original 1997 release date(s) of Radiohead’s landmark third album Ok Computer.Oknotok features the original Ok Computer twelve track album, eight B-sides, and the Radiohead completist’s dream: “I Promise,” “Lift,” and “Man Of War.” The original studio recordings of these three previously unreleased and long sought after OK COMPUTER era tracks finally receive their first official issue on OKNOTOK. All material on Oknotok is newly remastered from the original analogue tapes. OK COMPUTER was originally released on various dates ranging from May to July 1997. Produced by the band and Nigel Godrich, the album features the singles “Paranoid Android,” “Karma Police,” “Lucky” and “No Surprises,” and is widely cited as one of the greatest works of Radiohead’s--or any artist’s—catalogue. OK COMPUTER was the first Radiohead record to reach #1 in the UK and to be nominated for the Album of the Year Grammy. In 2015, The National Recording Registry selected Ok Computer to be preserved in the Library of Congress as a recording that has proven “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”One copy per customer!

Alternative Cover Artwork"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.

The seventh record by Godspeed You! Black Emperor will be released 22 September 2017 on Constellation. ‘Luciferian Towers‘ was recorded during the winter of 2016/2017 at Montreal’s Hotel2Tango, with Greg Norman once again engineering and co-producing (as he did on the band’s previous album ‘Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress‘). The music on ‘Luciferian Towers‘ took shape over the past two years, amidst GYBE’s collaborative performances with the Holy Body Tattoo dance company’s monumental, and spurred by the commissioning of new compositions memorializing the 100th anniversary of the WWI Battle of Messines, which premiered at a live concert event on the site of the massacre at Heuvelland, Belgium this past June. ‘Luciferian Towers‘ is Godspeed’s third album since the group’s ‘reunion’ in 2011 and their second consecutive single LP-length record (following three double-album releases in 2000, 2002 and 2012).

Auf ihrem siebten Langspieler klangen die Hamburger im Januar 2005 so direkt und konturiert, wie selten zuvor. "Pure Vernunft darf niemals siegen" wurde von Moses Schneider (u. a. Beatsteaks) innerhalb von nur neun Tagen produziert und von Michael Ilbert (Hives, Cardigans) abgemischt. Das facettenreiche, aber stilistisch ausgewogene Album weckte mit seiner Mischung aus entfesseltem Toco-Folk, driftender Pop-Melancholia und schwelenden Balladen ein beträchtliches Interesse der Medien und stand neun Wochen in den deutschen Charts, wo es bis auf den dritten Platz vorrückte. Tino Lange schrieb im "Spiegel": "Die drei Hanseaten und ihr neuer, aus den USA stammender Gitarrist Rick McPhail haben sich nun endgültig von den Neunzigerjahren losgesagt. Die typische Melange aus verhuschten Rhythmen, betont abstrakten Texten und Low-Fidelity-Produktion - als 'Hamburger Schule' ein fester Begriff im Musikbusiness - wurde über Bord geworfen. Stattdessen bewegen sich die Tocos in lyrischen Klang- und Textgefilden mit deutlich hörbarem Hang zum Perfektionismus." Die Nachpressung erscheint auf grünem 180-Gramm-Vinyl.

Ein ganzes Jahr haben die Beatsteaks an "YOURS" gearbeitet. Nie zuvor waren so viele Ideen zusammengekommen – und nie zuvor so unterschiedliche. "Das wurde bereits klar, als wir uns gegenseitig unsere Demos vorgespielt haben", sagt Frontmann Arnim Teutoburg-Weiss. "Alles hat sich vielseitiger und experimenteller angefühlt". Durch diesen Ansatz ist das insgesamt 8. Studioalbum das bislang vielseitigste der Berliner Band geworden. "YOURS" ist ein stilistisch enorm breit aufgestelltes Werk, das alle musikalischen Facetten der Beatsteaks aufzeigt. Es gibt illustre Gäste, mehrere Produzenten – das komplette Beatsteaks-Universum in 21 Songs.

Extra fine songwriter and longtime bedroom-pop auteur Kelley Stoltz delivers on the promise so many of his records slyly hint at. Que Aura is the platonic ideal of a Kelley Stoltz record, which is a very exciting thing indeed. Stoltz embraces his best synth-pop tendencies, with this incredibly self-assured set of tender tunes, combining in his own hangdog fashion both a disco-lit abandon and the attendant post-party sighs of dread and remorse. Great songs come out of Stoltz at an alarming rate on any given day but this particular collection is some of his most effortlessly catchy stuff yet. Ennui under the disco lights suits him very well—there’s a hearty sip of Pulp-ian white Brit shimmy with a wink, a dash of Fleetwood Mac’s cynically professional late ’70s sheen, and even a spritz or two of Echo and The Bunnymen, which should surprise no one who’s noticed Stoltz has been playing guitar with McCulloch and Company for the past year or so. This record cements Stoltz’s place in the power-pop pantheon where he belongs, right between Dwight Twilley and Martin Newell. Let the Hall of Fame know!

It is an entirely new recording constructed bycombining the most interesting moments of the past decade into unique tracks. We haveM.S. Waldron to thank as he is archival commandant of the NWW oeuvre and since 2006has recorded everything and we mean Everything. He has recorded all the live shows,sound-checks, rehearsals, off-stage events and even covertly recorded the privateconversations of the band. These recordings have been studiously and lovingly craftedinto a unique sonic tapestry by Waldron and Stapleton with delicate embroidery andfiligree added by Liles and Potter.

After a year of extensive touring in support of 2015’s The Agent Intellect, Protomartyr returned to their practice space in a former optician's office in Southwest Detroit. Inspired by The Raincoats' Odyshape, Mica Levi's orchestral compositions, and a recent collaboration with post-punk legends The Pop Group, for Rough Trade's 40th anniversary, the band began writing new music that artfully expanded on everything they’d recorded up until that point. The result is Relatives In Descent, Protomartyr's fourth full-length and Domino debut. Though not a concept album, it presents twelve variations on a theme: the unknowable nature of truth, and the existential dread that often accompanies that unknowing. This, at a moment when disinformation and garbled newspeak have become a daily reality.

The latest from the world's greatest frontman, Ian Svenonius, is the excellent live document of Chain and the Gang! Having put out full-lengths with K Records, In the Red Records and Dischord Records, Third Man is proud to join the ranks of Chain disciples in presenting their first ever live recording.This LP captures the raucous yet sagacious social commentary of Svenonius perfectly supplemented by the shaken soulful punk stylings of The Gang. This ain't 3am party dulled garage rock; this is sharp, socio-political and intelligent critique, as many DC artists have had a rich history of representing. This also must be Chain & the Gang’s decidedly lo-fi sound at its most clear.A highlight is the final track ''Come Over,'' kicking off with floor tom detonation, adding chunky power pop guitars and barely-breathing vocals pushing to the point of disintegration with the very last note of the show.

Los Angeles’s prodigal songwriting son Ariel Pink shares his eleventh studio album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, September 15. The album’s title makes a direct and heartfelt reference to a real-life L.A. musician, long presumed dead, who resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years to pen his autobiography and tragic life story in a series of blogs and YouTube tirades. “His book and life resonated with me to such a degree,” Pink states, “that I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him.” Dedicated to Bobby Jameson begins at the end and ends at the beginning. “We follow the protagonist through a battery of tests and milestones, the first of which sees him reborn into life out of death,” Pink explains, referencing the opening track “Time To Meet Your God.” “From there, he seesaws his way between the innocent love and the rock-solid edifice of childhood-worn trauma that together constitute his lifelong initiation into the realm of artifice and theatrical disposability.”

Los Angeles’s prodigal songwriting son Ariel Pink shares his eleventh studio album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, September 15. The album’s title makes a direct and heartfelt reference to a real-life L.A. musician, long presumed dead, who resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years to pen his autobiography and tragic life story in a series of blogs and YouTube tirades. “His book and life resonated with me to such a degree,” Pink states, “that I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him.” Dedicated to Bobby Jameson begins at the end and ends at the beginning. “We follow the protagonist through a battery of tests and milestones, the first of which sees him reborn into life out of death,” Pink explains, referencing the opening track “Time To Meet Your God.” “From there, he seesaws his way between the innocent love and the rock-solid edifice of childhood-worn trauma that together constitute his lifelong initiation into the realm of artifice and theatrical disposability.”

The debut solo album from Jack Cooper of Ultimate Painting. A beautifullymelancholic song cycle about life in England's "Las Vegas of the North",Blackpool andthe desolate Fylde Coast. "Everyone's from somewhere," says Jack. "I don't think it'sparticularly important people know this album is about Blackpool, but I think everyonecan empathise with the themes on the record." Evoking the delicate but oftenwidescreen musicality of Bill Fay and the abstract lyricism of the late 60s Scott Walkerrecords, as well as the more experimental sounds of John Cale and Robert Wyatt,Sandgrown is a collection of tranquil ballads that evoke feelings of nostalgia and reevaluationabout where you come from, wherever that may be.

Die zehn eindringlichen Songs auf Phoebe Bridgers Debütalbum"Stranger In The Alps" wurden von Tony Berg und Ethan Gruskaproduziert und präsentieren die einzigartige Stimme der 22-jährigen Sängerin perfekt. Auf ihrem Album herrscht eine fragileBalance. Ein Tanz zwischen verborgenen Geschichten undehrlichen Emotionen, zwischen flüstern und schreien. PhoebeBridgers betrachtet und reflektiert auf dem Album ihrepersönlichen Erfahrungen durch ihre einzigartige SongwriterPerspektive: Da sind offenkundige Referenzen von verlorenenIdolen, kanonische Popsongs und tatsächliche Ereignisse. Aberihre Geschichten entfalten sich durch die spezifische,atmosphärische Bildsprache, gesungen in ihrem zarten,konfessionellen Stil. Laut Bridgers ist alles was man auf demAlbum hört eine Sache des Gefühls; ihre Musik kommt zu ihr,wenn sie am ehrlichsten ist, ohne einen speziellen Plan, siemöchte in ihren Songs die Person sein, die sie auch in der Weltist. "I wasn't trying to be too lo-fi, too hi-fi, too self-serious, toodisingenuous.I feel pretty confident that I'm finding my voice," sagtBridgers. "I wanted the album to completely represent who I amand these songs are representative of what I set out to do." Vor"Stranger In The Alps" hat Phoebe Bridgers bereits drei Songsveröffentlicht, die von Ryan Adams in seinem Studio in L.A.produziert wurden und auf seinem Label erschienen. Seit 2016 istsie mit Julian Baker, Conor Oberst, Ryan Adams und anderen aufTour gewesen. BRIGHT EYES Mastermind Oberst ist auf"Stranger In The Alps" auch als Gastsänger in dem Song "WouldYou Rather" zu hören.

Limited repress of the desperately cool super hip post punk mega rarity. With different label so it’s different from the first pressing. The first trunk repress of this classic lost post punk single was way back in 2010. They all sold very fast. The original 7” then shot to £500+ if you can ever find one. And the Trunk 12” repress is now about £50. Three record companies approached Trunk in the last month to repress it, but it was easier just to repress this classic 12” with the original version, a radio edit and three further edits from various underground superstars. “Jive baby On A Sturday Night” is incredibly hooky. It was originally played by John Peel back in the day, but as a privately pressed record with no distribution apart from being carried about ina sprts holdall, it sold just 30 copies. Rediscovered by Thurston Moore in 2009, this super hip single is now back out with the full original version plus edits and mixes by Lemon Jelly’s Fred Deakin, Tommy Stupid and Georges Vert, AKA the Advisory Circle.

Nobody cared about their old heads, because the new ones work just fine now, don't they?.... they have the same size mouth and eyes. The song "Old Heads" is a sci-fi space anthem to technology that constantly replaces itself, proving both necessary and unnecessary at the same time. It's also a jangly pop gem, a trip through the fantastical that is ultimately warm and relatable. This remarkable coexistence is one of many achievements of Chad VanGaalen's Light Information, his sixth record on Sub Pop, due September 8th. For an album that's about "not feeling comfortable with really anything," as VanGaalen says, Light Information is nonetheless a vivid, welcoming journey through future worlds and relentless memories. The rich soundscapes and sometimes jarring imagery could only come from the mind of a creative polymath--an accomplished visual artist, animator, director, and producer, VanGaalen has scored television shows, designed puppet characters for Adult Swim, directed videos for Shabazz Palaces, Strand of Oaks, Metz, Dan Deacon, and The Head and the Heart, and produced records for Women, Alvvays, and others. While alienation has always been a theme of VanGaalen's music, Light Information draws on a new kind of wisdom--and anxiety--gained as he watches his kids growing up. "Being a parent has given me a sort of alternate perspective, worrying about exposure to a new type of consciousness that's happening through the internet," he says. Throughout the dark-wave reverb of Light Information are stories of paranoia, disembodiment, and isolation--but there's also playfulness, empathy, and intimacy. The product of six years' work, going back even before 2014's Shrink Dust, Light Information emerged from the experimental instruments that fill VanGaalen's Calgary garage studio. As always, VanGaalen wrote, played, and produced all of the music on Light Information (save Ryan Bourne's bass part on "Mystery Elementals" and vocals on "Static Shape" from his young daughters Ezzy and Pip), and designed the cover art.

Prawn's magnetism has always come from the textures they produce. Drawing as much influence from post-rock and punk as the emo world they're often written in to. Punchier and more proactive, Run refines the sound of 2014's Kingfisher LP - which swelled with both brass and string arrangement - by concentrating only on the instruments they're able to play live. Coupled with a production that is consciously raw and provocative, Run is the sound of Prawn at their intoxicating best, mirroring the restless energy of their live shows and moments of sweeping ambience that balances the whole thing on a knife-edge.

Ohne Pathos und Kitsch, stattdessenmit Fingerspitzengefühl und der Freiheit, Dinge anders zu denken und zu hinterfragen, um dafür einenadäquaten musikalischen Ausdruck zu finden. Belgrad wurde Anfang 2015 von Hendrik Rosenkranz und LeoLeopoldowitsch, die schon vorher miteinander gearbeitet haben, gegründet, als sie zusammen auf einermehrwöchigen Osteuropareise waren. Ihnen schlossen sich Stephan Mahler und Ron Henseler an.

Jim Jarmusch and Jozef Van Wissem met on the streets of New York in 2006. They shared a lot of interest and background: Blake and Swedenborg, new wave and early music, avant-garde art and history, so a collaboration and a friendship was born. Jarmusch was looking to have Van Wissem compose a score for a film he had been trying to make for years, what he described as a "crypto-vampire film" about two lovers, outsider types who have been in love for hundreds of years. Van Wissem's work comes from a tradition of avant-garde minimalism and lends itself well to the director's stark cinematic works. Jarmusch has played guitar in bands on and off since the late '70's. Van Wissem's compositional style involves hypnotic circular musical phrases that allow for a lot of contemplative space between the notes. Their first live performance was in Issue Project Room in Brooklyn in October 2011, where they appeared together for a Van Wissem curated concert program called "New Music for Early Instruments". The idea for their first album, Concerning the Entrance Into Eternity (Important Records) developed from their live performance. Jarmusch has said that he considers these songs as Van Wissem's compositions, and sees himself as someone filling in the background to Jozef's foreground, like the "scenic" on a film shoot, the one who paints the backdrops. "The sound of the lute is as bright as the sun, a beautiful red color and my stuff sounds sort of like the moon, more like blue, like mercury." This newest album, The Mystery of Heaven was recorded in New York with help from hypnotic Tilda Swinton on guest vocals.

Bolstered by singles such as “Archie, Marry Me,” and an extensive touring schedule that included multiple full U.S. and European runs, along with performances at Coachella, Glastonbury, and Reading/Leeds (plus Lollapalooza to come this August), the record’s word-of-mouth success has translated into Soundscans of over 33K and a combined Spotify play count of more than 33 million streams.

Für die Wartenden ist die letzte Publikationeine Ewigkeit her, für alle Beteiligten war es nur ein Momentvoller neuen Erfahrungen. Seit ihrer Gründung im Jahr 2011 hatdie Band eine hohe Fluktuation, das Songtextschreiber-Duo JackCleverly und Dan Simons bilden seit der Gründung dasFundament der Cymbals. Als das Duo damals die Bandformierte, ging es in erster Linie nur darum, gemeinsam viel Spaßzu haben. Dass die irgendwann einmal auf der ganzen WeltKonzerte geben würden, hätten sie nie zu träumen gewagt. In denletzten sechs Jahren hat die Band schlussendlich drei Albenherausgebracht und über zehn personelle Veränderungenvorgenommen, die die Band weiter geformt haben. Bei ,LIGHT INYOUR MIND" waren Justin Goings und Josh Hefferman amSchlagzeug beteiligt, während Alabaster DePlume bei ,FullyAutomated Luxury" Saxophon spielte.

Though Badmotorfinger was released late in 1991, the year grunge broke, it was 1992 that really put Soundgarden on the world's radar. They were touring continuously across the USA and Europe, handpicked by Guns N' Roses to open for them on the Use Your Illusion tour, as well as playing with Skid Row and Faith No More, and they were invited to be a part of the 2nd ever Lollapalooza tour along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Pearl Jam. Their Lollapalooza set on 22nd July 1992, in Bremerton, WA was a classic one, an epic live radio broadcast from one of grunge's seminal acts and most talented frontmen, the late great Chris Cornell. Another epic live broadcast on HQ vinyl from Egg Raid.

After a year of extensive touring in support of 2015’s The Agent Intellect, Protomartyr returned to their practice space in a former optician's office in Southwest Detroit. Inspired by The Raincoats' Odyshape, Mica Levi's orchestral compositions, and a recent collaboration with post-punk legends The Pop Group, for Rough Trade's 40th anniversary, the band began writing new music that artfully expanded on everything they’d recorded up until that point. The result is Relatives In Descent, Protomartyr's fourth full-length and Domino debut. Though not a concept album, it presents twelve variations on a theme: the unknowable nature of truth, and the existential dread that often accompanies that unknowing. This, at a moment when disinformation and garbled newspeak have become a daily reality.

One of the most unique, original and unusual rock bands to burst onto the alternative scene in the 90s, Morphine was originally formed by vocalist/bassist Mark Sandman, saxophonist Dana Colley and drummer Jerome Deupree (later replaced by Billy Conway) in Cambridge, Mass in 1989. They expertly combined blues, jazz and rock elements into a very distinct style, anchored by Sandman's deep, crooning, beat-style vocals. Rather than having an electric guitar as the focal point like most rock bands, the trio's sound was built around Sandman's two-string electric bass (often deployed with a slide) and Colley's growling, baritone sax which they dubbed as ''low-rock.''The band enjoyed critical acclaim but saw mixed results commercially. In the States, they were embraced on public and college radio and MTV's 120 Minutes but received little to no support from commercial rock radio or other music TV programming. They did enjoy much higher profile success overseas, especially in Belgium, Portugal France and Australia where they were featured on music television programming frequently and filled much larger venues.After five studio albums and extensive touring, Morphine disbanded after Mark tragically died of a heart attack performing on stage at the Giardini del Principe in Palestrina, Italy. Surviving members have soldiered on in various incarnations, the most recent being the Vapors of Morphine that will be on tour through the summer of 2017.Morphine was an incredibly dynamic and highly improvisational band in concert, yet released only one live album in their career. Live At The Warfield 1997 will right the ship by shedding light on a fantastic live rock n' roll document that has gone unheard for 20 years - and Mark Sandman was a stickler for fidelity of their documented live performances so this music was expertly recorded showcasing amazing room ambience.

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.

t does not happen that often any more that unreleased music from 40 years ago surfaces. Even more unlikely it is that the songs put on tape are such treasures. The Voltags were right at the forefront of the local Washington DC New Wave/Punk scene of the late 1970s. Influenced by Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, The Clash, and The B-52's, they have released only one 45rpm single during their existence. But during the time span of not even 18 months, they had recorded enough material for an entire album - but the songs remained in the can.This is the story of The Voltags, a short-lived band which could have become famous and mentioned in the same breath as the aforementioned music legends of that era – if their songs had been released back in the day. Dive in and enjoy the sound of The Voltags, it is truly special. We here at Perfect Toy are thrilled to be label to finally release their work and we sincerely hope that they are finally getting the appreciation they so richly deserve.Dave Bennett and Hangnail Phillips grew up in Brookside Park, Newark, Delaware, USA, a small suburban college town nestled midway between Philadelphia and Baltimore. Their first band project evolved into Pump Productions (Pump) under which they released their only 45rpm single in 1970 (one of the two songs, "Pappy's Rug", can be heard on "Down & Wired 3", Perfect Toy Rec.). Soon after the recording of the single the two graduated from High School and disbanded Pump. Both moved on to form two new Newark bands. Dave was a founding member of "Snake Grinder & The Shredded Fieldmice" and Hangnail co-founded "Rudy Baker & The Vegetables".In early 1979, two friends of Dave's, Nick Norris and Mike Fisher, became partners in a music production company, White Clay Productions. One of White Clay's first artists was Dave Bennett who had just written two excellent songs: "Electric Jungle" and "Son Of Sam". White Clay set up a recording session and Dave assembled a group of friends to record the songs. Before the recordings were even mixed, Dave asked Hangnail if he would join in a band to support the single and other songs he had written. When James Keesey (drums) and Rick Reid (bass) were added the line-up was complete. For a while they didn't have a name and then one day Nick Norris was looking at a photo of Dave standing next to a "Danger High Voltage" sign. Dave's head was in front of the E in Voltage and Nick laughed "Danger High Voltag?" and so it was soon suggested that the band should be called "The Voltags" (pronounced Vol'-togs). After months of preparing a repertoire they were ready to play out. Their first gig was (October 20, 1979) at a gay disco in nearby Wilmington called The Backstage. On December 30, 1979, White Clay decided to put on a big show at the State Theater to celebrate the end of the Seventies ("The End Of The Decade Bash").For the next year, with the help of White Clay, they recorded 19 songs, both studio and live recordings with White Clay's mobile unit. If not for these "off the board" recordings, many of their songs would have never been recorded. There was always talk of a second Voltags single but the strains of working so closely together were taking their toll on them and Dave decided to leave the group in December of 1980. The Voltags couldn't be The Voltags without Dave, and by the end of 1981, Hangnail, James and Rick, too, were ready to disband.

Kele Okereke veröffentlicht am 06. Oktober sein neues Album „Fatherland“ via BMG. Es ist das bislang erwachsenste und musikalisch abenteuerlichste Kapitel seiner erfolgreichen Karriere und enthält Duette mit Olly Alexander (Years & Years) sowie Corinne Bailey Rae. Das dritte Soloalbum des Bloc Party-Frontmanns ist gleichzeitig das erste, das unter seinem vollen Namen erscheint. Im Gegensatz zu den eher elektronischen Vorgängern „The Boxer“ und „Trick“ geht es musikalisch in eine völlig neue Richtung. „Fatherland” zeigt eine bisher unbekannte Facette Keles: die des Singer-Songwriters. Die Klangpalette wirkt natürlicher und fast schon klassisch: zarter Folk („Streets Been Talking“), üppiger Soul („Do U Right“) und tiefgründiges Dub-Reaggae-meets-Weimar-Cabaret („You Keep On Whispering“). Das atemberaubende „Yemaha“ wurde bereits vor einigen Wochen veröffentlicht und von Bloc Party-Bassist Justin Harris in Portland, Oregon produziert. Er und Kele arbeiteten dabei mit professionellen Musikern der Undergroundszene in Portland zusammen.

Punk rock exploded on the international scene just as Spain was awakening from theend of Franco's 35-year regime. And while new freedoms for an old country meant ablossoming of art and culture, the combination of geographical obstacles, a strugglingeconomy, and prejudices towards the countries of the Iberian Peninsula meant that theSpanish underground music scene operated with added urgency, it also operated inrelative isolation. But as anyone that's dug into Spanish punk could tell you, the scenehas an unparalleled vibrancy. Suicide Squeeze Records is proud to spread the word onthis exciting community by way of a split 7" by two of Madrid's most ecstaticcontemporary garage rock bands-the fiery quartet Hinds and the psych-tinged scorchersLos Nastys. In a nod to Madrid's close-knit underground circuit, the longstandingmusical tradition of covers, and the band's mutual admiration, the split 7" features thetwo bands tackling each others' songs. Side A finds Hinds covering Los Nastys' pop gem"Holograma" while the flipside finds Los Nastys' doing a rave-up of Hinds' "CastigadasEn El Granero." The record is both an unabashed party and an exciting document of anoft-overlooked scene. The first pressing consists of 1000 copies on translucent bloodred vinyl and includes a download card.

,Die Songs auf ,Strange Peace" handeln von Unsicherheit", erklärt AlexEdkins, Gitarrist und Sänger von METZ. ,Es geht darum, dass wir endlicherkennen müssen, dass wir eben nicht immer Herr der Lage sind unddass wir anfangen müssen, uns Fehler einzugestehen und Ängste zuakzeptieren. Wir müssen einen Weg finden, der uns einen Anschein vonFrieden inmitten all des hereingebrochenen Chaos bewahrt." ,StrangePeace" ist nicht mehr als ein emphatischer aber kunstvollerHammerschlag zum Status Quo. Es ist ein einziges Dampf ablassen, einbrutal-schonungsloser Kommentar zur sozialen Lage, der ebensoknüppelt und provoziert, wie er gleichzeitig anregt und aufrüttelt. DasTrio bestehend aus Alex Edkins, Hayden Menzies (Schlagzeug) und ChrisSlorach (Bass) hat ,Strange Peace" in Chicago bei Electrical Audioaufgenommen, dort wurde es mit der Unterstützung von Steve Albini liveund direkt auf Tape eingespielt. Den letzten Feinschliff haben sie in ihrerHeimatstadt Toronto zusammen mit ihrem langjährigen WeggefährtenEngineer und Mixer Graham Walsh getätigt. Das Resultat ist nicht nurder Beweis einer deutlichen Reifung ihrer künstlerischen Fähigkeitensondern auch der Beleg für kritisches Urteilsvermögen unddifferenzierter Wahrnehmung ihres direkten, scheinbar verrücktgewordenen, Umfelds. ,Their whiplash of distortion is made withprecision, a contained chaos. But you would never talk about them likethat. Because METZ are not something you study or analyze. They aresomething you feel: a transfer of energy, pure and simple." - LiisaLadouceur, Exclaim!

Die zehn eindringlichen Songs auf Phoebe Bridgers Debütalbum"Stranger In The Alps" wurden von Tony Berg und Ethan Gruskaproduziert und präsentieren die einzigartige Stimme der 22-jährigen Sängerin perfekt. Auf ihrem Album herrscht eine fragileBalance. Ein Tanz zwischen verborgenen Geschichten undehrlichen Emotionen, zwischen flüstern und schreien. PhoebeBridgers betrachtet und reflektiert auf dem Album ihrepersönlichen Erfahrungen durch ihre einzigartige SongwriterPerspektive: Da sind offenkundige Referenzen von verlorenenIdolen, kanonische Popsongs und tatsächliche Ereignisse. Aberihre Geschichten entfalten sich durch die spezifische,atmosphärische Bildsprache, gesungen in ihrem zarten,konfessionellen Stil. Laut Bridgers ist alles was man auf demAlbum hört eine Sache des Gefühls; ihre Musik kommt zu ihr,wenn sie am ehrlichsten ist, ohne einen speziellen Plan, siemöchte in ihren Songs die Person sein, die sie auch in der Weltist. "I wasn't trying to be too lo-fi, too hi-fi, too self-serious, toodisingenuous.I feel pretty confident that I'm finding my voice," sagtBridgers. "I wanted the album to completely represent who I amand these songs are representative of what I set out to do." Vor"Stranger In The Alps" hat Phoebe Bridgers bereits drei Songsveröffentlicht, die von Ryan Adams in seinem Studio in L.A.produziert wurden und auf seinem Label erschienen. Seit 2016 istsie mit Julian Baker, Conor Oberst, Ryan Adams und anderen aufTour gewesen.

German Exclusive Coloured Edition! Black&White swirl vinyl! Sacred Bones is pleased to release Okovi, the new album from ZOLA JESUS. For over a decade, Nika Roza Danilova has been recording music as ZOLA JESUS. She's been on Sacred Bones Records for most of that time, and Okovi marks her reunion with the label. Fittingly, the 11 electronics-driven songs on Okovi share musical DNA with her early work on Sacred Bones. The music was written in pure catharsis, and as a result, the sonics are heavy, dark, and exploratory. In addition to the contributions of Danilova's longtime live bandmate Alex DeGroot, producer/musician WIFE, cellist/noise-maker Shannon Kennedy from PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT, and percussionist Ted Byrnes all helped build Okovi's textural universe. With Okovi, ZOLA JESUS has crafted a profound meditation on loss and reconciliation that stands tall alongside the major works of its genre. The album peaks of tragedy with great wisdom and clarity. Its songs plumb dark depths, but they reflect light as well. ,This album is a deeply personal snapshot of loss, reconciliation, and a sympathy for the chains that keep us all grounded to the unforgiving laws of nature. To bring it to life, I decided to enlist the help of Alex DeGroot, who has been the only constant in my live band and helped mix the Stridulum EP back in 2010. It will be released on Sacred Bones, the closest group of people I'll ever have to blood-bound family." - Zola Jesus

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.
