Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker
Leonard Cohen
You Want It Darker
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Sony)
20,69 €* 22,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / EU – Original

Now 82 years old, and sensing that time is running short, Cohen offers, writes Rolling Stone, a “gift to music lovers: a realistically grim, spiritually radiant and deeply poetic worldview, generally spiked with a romantic thrum and an existential wink.”

Get Behind Me Satan
2LP | 2005 | US | Reissue (Third Man)
21,59 €* 23,99 € -10%
Release:2005 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
The White Stripes’ 2005, fifth studio album reminds listeners of the fundamental nature of their production. While still maintaining their iconic elements listeners can immediately identify with The White Stripes, White trades in his classic, guitarheavy elements for piano ballads, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and even some touches of marimba. The Rolling Stone declared this album so “wild, it could make you weep over how pitilessly the Stripes keep crushing the other bands out there.” Get Behind Me Satan ranked number 3 on both U.S. and U.K. charts, trumping their preceding albums’ rank on U.S. charts. The album’s fi rst track and single, “Blue Orchid,” became a fast radio hit in the U.S. and U.K., making it the band’s second UK Top 10 Hit. The album’s second single, “My Doorbell,” boasts a piano and drums charge, reviewed by NME as the “funkiest tune The White Stripes have ever put their name to.” Slant Magazine invites listeners to “take solace in the unbridled honesty of simple, solid rock n’ roll” of Get Behind Me Satan, while Pitchfork crowns the album as some of the White Stripes’ best work. Get Behind Me Satan is that raw, foot-stompin’, soulful sound that will take your imagination to that peaceful front porch in some cozy, southern cabin. So sit back and stomp your foot to the melodic acoustic guitar, piano, stirring vocals, crickets, and the creaking sound of that porch.
Woods - Love Is Love
Woods
Love Is Love
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Woodsist)
17,09 €* 18,99 € -10%
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Love is Love was written and recorded in the two months immediately following the election, but it’s not a record borne entirely of angry, knee-jerk reaction to what America is becoming. Instead, it’s a meditation on love, and on what life means now. Taking cues from last year’s City Sun Eater in the River of Light, it feels very much like a record made from living, shoulder to shoulder, in a major city: weaving psychedelic swirls of guitar between languid horns reminiscent of the best Ethiopian jazz—Love is Love is a distinctly New York record. It is a document of protest in uncertain times and an open-hearted rejection of cynicism in favor of emotional honesty. It is bright, and then, unexpectedly, a little dark sometimes too.

Zos Kia was formed by John Gosling (Mekon), John Balance (Coil)and Min, with guest Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson (ThrobbingGristle). Their one and only album, 'Transparent', was releasedon tape in 1983 by Austria's now defunct Nekrophile label.These first released recordings of both Coil and Zos Kia werereissued years later by Coil (Threshold House/Eskaton) in anedited edition. Now the complete recordings appear for thefirst time, completely remastered from the unedited tapes. The music on 'Transparent' is genuinely unsettling and disturbing, with a more primal industrial feel than 'Scatology', the Coil album which followed. Here's an essential insight into the very early work of these extraordinary artists and an undeniable link between Coil and Throbbing Gristle. The double vinyl edition comes in a sumptuous gatefold sleeve with a 12-inch booklet featuring unseen images.

Es ist kein Konzeptalbum und trotzdem ist der rote Faden, der sich durch alles hindurchzieht der Gedanke von Fürsorge. Fürsorge für andere, aber auch für sich selbst.

With praise still reverberating from December's unveiling of 'Governed By Contagions', At The Drive In has issued another clarion call from its first album in 17 years: 'Incurably Innocent' is the second track to be released in advance of that record, titled in • ter a • li • a, now available for pre-order and confirmed for release May 5th on Rise Records.Pitting spacey phaser and thrash-y riffing against a sidewinder hook and siren wail, "Incurably Innocent," described by vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala as "a song about sexual abuse and being able to finally speak out," reveals additional facets of the kaleidoscopic in • ter a • li • a (Latin for "among other things"). Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Rich Costey at Hollywood's Sound Factory, the 11-song 41-minute in • ter a • li • a picks up where 2000's Relationship of Command left off... and rockets off into myriad other trajectories as unpredictable as they are intense.
Father John Misty - Pure Comedy Limited Edition
Father John Misty
Pure Comedy Limited Edition
2LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Bella Union)
58,49 €* 64,99 € -10%
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Deluxe 2xLP version on aluminum & copper vinyl, a die-cut customizable jacket with 4 interactive “background” sleeves (so you can have whatever sky you damn well feel like as the cover), all encased in a clear slipcase. Includes a fold-out poster and an exclusive holographic tarot card not available in the standard FJM’s Ha Deck by Ed Steed.Since 2012, Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman, has unexpectedly emerged as a singular (if not undeniably, um, idiosyncratic) voice. Whether by virtue of his lyrics, which routinely defy the presumed polarities of wit and empathy; his live performances which may perhaps be described best as “intimately berzerk”, or the infuriating line he seems to occupy between canny and total fraud online or in interviews, Father John Misty has cultivated a rare space for himself in the musical landscape – that of a real enigma. Pure Comedy sees Tillman at the height of these powers: as a lyricist, and equally so a cultural observer – at times bordering on freakishly prescient. Tillman’s bent critiques, bared humanity and gently warped classic songwriting are all here in equal measure and – at 75 minutes – there’s a veritable fuck ton of it. The album navigates themes of progress, technology, fame, the environment, politics, aging, social media, human nature, human connection and his own role in it all with his usual candour, and in terms as timely as they are timeless.Tillman wrote the majority of Pure Comedy throughout 2015 and recorded all the basic tracking and vocals live to tape (in no more than two takes each) at United Studios (fka the legendary Ocean Way Studios, favored by Frank Sinatra and The Beach Boys) in Los Angeles March 2016.Pure Comedy was co-produced once again by Josh Tillman and long-time producer Jonathan Wilson; mixed by Tillman, Wilson and Trevor Spencer, and mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering Studios. The album features string, horn and choral arrangements from classical iconoclast Gavin Bryars (Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet, Sinking Of The Titanic), with additional contributions from Nico Muhly and Thomas Bartlett.

Nature Reserve
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
12,59 €* 13,99 € -10%
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The fiftieth release on Deep Distance sees the welcome return of London’s kosmische / kraut maestros EAT LIGHTS BECOME LIGHTS with their first studio recordings for three years.Recorded in Berlin, London, Spain and Portugal, “Nature Reserve” is an incredible return- a beautiful LP, featuring on one hand the bands’ trademark heavy motorik workouts alongside a more pastoral set of blissful, deep space lullabies. Kicking off with the title track, it’s instantly recognisable to longterm ELBL devotees that the devastating twinned drummer attack of live shows (only, previously) make their recording debut here- and it’s debatable whether the band have ever sounded so powerful than the opener here. To these ears at least, the beauty of this record is that the incendiary power of the freakouts is equally matched and aided to by the most beautiful, serene soundscapes of tracks like “A Distant Point of Light” and “The Great Up Above” which recall “Laser Guided Melodies” era Spiritualized, achieving a killer balance of power and bliss. The band have shared the stage with the likes of Moon Duo, Sonic Boom, Warm Digits, The Silver Apples, The Early Years not to mention several stints acting as Damo Suzuki’s backing band. A great record which should draw in interested newcomers as well as more than pleasing ELBL’s older heads, the LP has a one time pressing of 500 on pink vinyl and like both the artist and labels’ output previously it is expected to sell out rapidly.

In 1992 the Melvins’ fascination / adoration / denigration of the mighty Kiss rock and roll universe compelled them to excrete out three solo masterworks inspired by the Kiss solo LPs. The first in the series is King Buzzo, from the Melvins’ giggling guitar grumpus. Four songs of atmospheric clanging and rockin’ banging. Also features the many talents, drumming and otherwise, of a famous Grunge™ superstar, whose name sort of rhymes with New Wave Asshole. The second in the series is Dale Crover, from the Melvins’ sleepy drum caveman. Four songs of gloomy heaviness, with Dale doin’ the drummin’, singin’, guitarin’, and dancin’. The third in the series is Joe Preston, from the Melvins’ electronic beard warlord. Three songs of fuzz bass computer drone temper tantrum. All three 12-inches reissued on vinyl after 100,000 years out of print.

Auf dem neuen Album wird orchestraler Pop - Streicher und Hörner inklusive - genial mit rockigen Rhythmen und wunderbaren Melodien kombiniert. Neil Hannon hat in seiner Karriere mit Künstlern wie Yann Tiersen, Tom Jones, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Air, Ute Lemper und Carl Barat zusammengearbeitet.

LP | 2017 | US | Original (Flenser)
16,19 €* 17,99 € -10%
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance
In late 2014, Planning For Burial’s Thom Wasluck left the red house in New Jersey he’d called home for the last decade to return to his childhood bedroom in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Back in the house where he grew up, Wasluck found himself cut off from the familiarities of the previous decade as he put himself to work in the family trade. The monotony of routine quickly set in; work, home, and alcohol day after day became the norm. The childhood room that had given birth to his primordial four-track recordings was now a place of emptiness. These conditions set the stage for Planning For Burial’s third full-length, Below the House. In terms of genre, Planning For Burial is often simply characterized as “gloom,” which can be seen as a blend of slowcore, shoegaze, doom, 90s alt rock and drone, and this album offers nine sullen and frequently heavy songs that brim with nostalgia and suburban ennui. It is a return to form of sorts to his beloved first album, 2010’s Leaving — an introverted work characterized by its heavy dynamics and personal obsessions. Since the beginning, Planning For Burial has been a solo endeavor. Wasluck has been recording music himself and touring extensively as a one-man band, playing hundreds of shows in DIY spaces and nightclubs, where he has shared the stage with acts like Deafheaven, King Woman and Chelsea Wolfe. Both incredibly loud and intimate, Planning For Burial plays with an unrivaled passion and funereal grace that is equally at home in basements and large venues.

In 1999 Polyvinyl, then only 3 years old, released an unassuming debut album by a band called American Football. The band played a dozen shows and then parted ways. Then something remarkable happened: for the next 15 years, the album was discovered over and over, going on to sell more than 100,000 copies and becoming one of the most influential indie/emo albums of all-time. In 2014 and 2015 American Football played their first shows in 15 years, selling out venues the world over. Organically, the band started to write new material, and years of ideas gelled into the a picture-perfect second album to be released 17 years after the first.

Als Hommage an einen der wohl schmierlappigsten Spaghetti-Westernhelden aller Zeiten, Sartana, vertont der Human Boss, wiedermals vereint mit der wunderbaren Miss Peta Devlin und den raubeinigen Herren von Smokestack Lightnin', den wildesten aller wilden Westen, die weite Prärie und den erbitterten Kampf zwischen Gut, Böse und laktosefreier Milch. Die Themenpalette der Texte ist dabei so ausladend im Gefächerten, wie die Musik musikalisch ist. Dazu viel, sehr viel Sand, Rauch und die Erkenntnis, dass sich die chinesische Küche eben doch nur aus Bohnen und Speck zusammensetzt. Darauf einen Drambuie.

Hanni El Khatib’s first idea for his Savage Times project was to do something he’d never done before. Instead, he ended up doing …well, everything he’d never done before. He’d be playing new instruments, writing in unfamiliar new ways, opening himself up to an unrelenting stream of ideas and dedicating himself totally to pure musical instinct. And the result? 19 best-of-the-sessions songs,destined for vinyl release as a Limited Edition 10” LP Box Set, as well as the kind of creative revelations that only happen when you quit looking around and start looking ahead. Originally, he’d hoped to explode the lingering idea that he was simply a blues-rock guitar player, but that’s why Savage Times touches on everything from garage rock to punk to disco, hip-hop and even some unexpected solo-guitar self-portraiture. But on the way, he also exploded his own idea of what he could do—even maybe who he was, or would be. Savage Times was an experiment as well as an experience, that touched on some of the most personal, social & political elements to date.

Genre:Rock / Indie
It’s been waiting to happen. Beyond the mystical pyramids and the mountains of Mars, Looloo’s silhouette emerges. A demigod born out of intergalactic dust, this exalted creature moves to the music of an epiphany laden with pretzels and Cherry Coke bottles. Its electric guitar-shaped head chants the arrival of a new Golden Age of distortion, an inescapable voyage to the end of the world to reconnect with the beings who brought us intelligence and hard rock. If you could only see it, you would understand... Then one day, a band falls under its spell. Suddenly entranced by Looloo’s incomprehensible Sanskrit babble, the musicians are awakened to a desire for transcendence and communion of the spirits. As if each one of us were a small speck in the constellation created by Looloo’s vintage leatherette one-piece suit. Surely this ecstasy and elation will be short-lived. Rencontrer Looloo, Chocolat’s second album after an extended hiatus, finds the band swimming through modal waters, somewhere at the confluence of hard jazz and surf metal, blended with a songwriting tradition that the media, for lack of a better term, often define as folk. A far stretch from the psychedelic kraut explorations of Tss Tss, the new opus is a sort of initiatory account of the band’s journey into orbit. Here Chocolat’s kaleidoscopic visions of space have been replaced by manifestations of stark, shiny white boulders, with edges sharper than a wild jackal’s fangs. First came a band bursting with unpredictable rock and roll violence in the middle of the new millennium’s first decade. Chocolat charmed critics with its Dylan-inspired French chansons, whose sophisticated arrangements didn’t completely cover up the band’s penchant for gritty garage tones. During this period, Chocolat released a straightforward and erotic self-titled EP in 2007, followed by Piano Élégant in 2008, a suavely romantic debut opus infused with rock and yéyé influences. Several concerts ensued, including a mini-tour with the late Jay Reatard... then the band completely disappeared from the public eye. Although Chocolat went on a hiatus, its members weren’t exactly idle. Ysaël Pépin terrorized the globe as the bass player of Demon's Claws. As for Jimmy Hunt, he explored his songwriting through a solo career, which, among other things, allowed him to recruit producer Emmanuel Ethier and keyboardist Christophe Lamarche-Ledoux (also a member of Organ Mood), yielding the wildly contagious Maladie d’amour (2013). Shortly after all this infectious madness, some strange force of nature brought the members of Chocolat back together. More fierce and fiery than ever, they released Tss Tss in 2014, an album whose expansive psychedelic sound and kraut-inspired repetitions earned the band international recognition and many tours abroad. Rencontrer Looloo, which is probably the last release ever recorded at the now defunct Studio Victor, was produced by Emmanuel Ethier, written by Jimmy Hunt, mixed by Christophe Lamarche-Ledoux, and recorded by François-Régis Pagé and Louis-Philippe Kyer. The album features (in alphabetical order) Emmanuel Ethier on guitar, Brian Hildebrand on drums, Jimmy Hunt on guitar and vocals, Christophe Lamarche-Ledoux on keyboards and saxophone, and Ysaël Pépin on bass. To get a taste of the future, simply follow the three neon red nipples that light the night sky with all their electroluminescent splendor. Once you get there, savour the sweet nectar Chocolat pours you, straight from Looloo’s flaccid and wrinkled breasts. Drink, and drink some more.

Received an 8.8 Best New Music rating from Pitchfork.Liz Harris wrote about the new album: Ruins was made in Aljezur, Portugal in 2011 on a residency set up by Galeria Zé dos Bois. I recorded everything there except the last song, which I did at mother's house in 2004. I?m still surprised by what I wound up with. It was the first time I?d sat still for a few years; processed a lot of political anger and emotional garbage. Recorded pretty simply, with a portable 4-track, Sony stereo mic and an upright piano. When I wasn?t recording songs I was hiking several miles to the beach. The path wound through the ruins of several old estates and a small village.The album is a document. A nod to that daily walk. Failed structures. Living in the remains of love. I left the songs the way they came (microwave beep from when power went out after a storm); I hope that the album bears some resemblance to the place that I was in.

Holy Holy Holy' is the second solo album by the Samsara Blues Experiment's Christian Peters. Once again, this work collects two previous releases (digitally released EP's), of which the first one featured the 20-minute modular synthesizer jam 'Modular Mono Logic' from June 2016. The second EP, from November 2016, featured different styles, including the title track 'Schorfheide Blues', a rock song roughly reminding of 'The Desert Sessions', which may very well be the strangest track here.

Dominick Fernow’s Hospital Productions hail the obscure, transfixing poetry and exquisite gothic pall of Vilains Bonshommes; a Rimbaud-inspired duo including members of Canada’s Contrepoison and Norwegian group, Mare.Éternité Retrouvée was first released as a cassette edition on Norway’s Fossbrenna Creations and remains the duo’s only available output. Apparently a further album was promised, yet never manifested, which only serves to heighten the mystery of this one; their lone, exceptional iteration. Stripped to the bare essentials of drum machine, analog synth and vocals rendered in acres of sepulchral space, the 3-track EP draws listeners into a flawlessly realised sphere of dark influence where minimalist, desiccated harmonies and bony rhythms are embedded against unfathomably bombed out, maximalist backdrops - what most would define as unmistakably gothic.Poised, arch and evoking a sense of clutching power from the jaws of despair, the EP speaks to life’s loneliest but formative experiences both literally, through the use of Rimbaud’s tortured poetry in the sagging heave of L’Éternité, and metaphorically, through economically authentic sound design in the dirges of Death Shines On Triumphant Days and The Ages Anew which both suspend the listener by icy hooks at the core of it all.

All of this frantic, external activity lead to a softly damaged dreaminess and broadened intent that has not been heard in the previous works of Xiu Xiu.

Since 2012, Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman, has unexpectedly emerged as a singular (if not undeniably, um, idiosyncratic) voice. Whether by virtue of his lyrics, which routinely defy the presumed polarities of wit and empathy; his live performances which may perhaps be described best as “intimately berzerk”, or the infuriating line he seems to occupy between canny and total fraud online or in interviews, Father John Misty has cultivated a rare space for himself in the musical landscape – that of a real enigma. Pure Comedy sees Tillman at the height of these powers: as a lyricist, and equally so a cultural observer – at times bordering on freakishly prescient. Tillman’s bent critiques, bared humanity and gently warped classic songwriting are all here in equal measure and – at 75 minutes – there’s a veritable fuck ton of it. The album navigates themes of progress, technology, fame, the environment, politics, aging, social media, human nature, human connection and his own role in it all with his usual candour, and in terms as timely as they are timeless.Tillman wrote the majority of Pure Comedy throughout 2015 and recorded all the basic tracking and vocals live to tape (in no more than two takes each) at United Studios (fka the legendary Ocean Way Studios, favored by Frank Sinatra and The Beach Boys) in Los Angeles March 2016.Pure Comedy was co-produced once again by Josh Tillman and long-time producer Jonathan Wilson; mixed by Tillman, Wilson and Trevor Spencer, and mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering Studios. The album features string, horn and choral arrangements from classical iconoclast Gavin Bryars (Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet, Sinking Of The Titanic), with additional contributions from Nico Muhly and Thomas Bartlett.

"Full of striking realizations and vignettes painted in expert strokes. Even on an album full of emotional vulnerability, there's no weakness or self-pity. Nelson brings an old-world confidence, almost a bust-through-the-saloon-door swagger to her suburban ennui." -Stereogum"Sarah Bethe Nelson sounds like a nice gal who is also nobody's fool, a combination that isn't so easy to pull off. With her soft, breathy voice and casual but effective phrasing, Nelson has a perfect instrument for smart, dreamy indie pop, but keep an ear peeled for her lyrics, and you'll quickly discover Nelson has a good head on her shoulders, has been around the block a time or two, and will only put up with other folks' nonesense for so long." -AllMusic

Previously confined to occasional, epic live shows; these three heavy guitar & percussion only (bar the whacked out vocals of Edwin in part) pieces perhaps represent something of a curveball for the label here. Hinting at nods to those revered early VU live boots, with a dose of early Amon Duul, even the mighty guitar heavy improv of early Television shows and more recently the Flower / Corsano duo.

Grovjobb was a Swedish band that formed in 1995 and existed foronly a few years, The group played an interesting hybrid ofprogressive rock, psychedelia, forest folk and world music witha definite throwback to the early '70s. Compared to the debut, the jam based approach on the band's second album takes a more hypnotic, jazzier approach and the flute playing is more fluid, resulting in a distant krauty vibe. The use of sitar and bits of Indian classical music adds a spacious feel to the material and an aura of originality.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Formed in 2015, Flasher is Taylor Mulitz (of Priests, guitar, vocals), Daniel Saperstein (bass, vocals), and Emma Baker (drums, vocals). Longtime friends, they are also established members of Washington, D.C.’s recently re-emergent DIY music scene. However, while Flasher is a product of that crew, its music operates by different physics. Where their local peers favor direct and volatile gestures, Flasher’s music exists in the tension between conflicting feelings and sensibilities. In the sometimes gritty context of a DIY venue, Flasher manages to project a bit of sensuality. They explore the overlap between aggression and intimacy. Originally, released on cassette in April of 2016 and now reissued on vinyl, the band’s self-titled debut includes seven songs recorded at Lurch, a studio run by Saperstein and OWEN WUERKER (fellow D.C. resident and member of Big Hush). The songs are born from a process of deconstruction and reassembly. Melodic motifs are transmuted into fodder for the rhythm section. Call and response vocals warp and skew established gender roles. Lyrically, the trio take on experiences of shame, guilt, and pleasure, and haul them away from abstraction toward a place of physical expression. The songs are intended as experiment in how far a body—whether composed of flesh and bone, or melody and rhythm—can be restructured and reinvented while remaining desirable or even functional. The results speak to the band’s transformation over the last year, both in personal matters and as artists.

Mark Sultan's (aka BBQ) first release on his new Chompazoid imprint is an ode to one of the styles he's mined from and revered for ages. "Ophelia" is a garage rocker, with feet planted firmly in the mid-60s, while the flip "Believe Me" could be a Dutch mover from the same era. "My commitment to real rock n roll is as deep as ever, except now I have the means—a home studio (also Chompazoid) in Germany—to mine the sound, properly." Says Sultan, "I plan to have an in-house label, like the 45 factories I admired as a kid. Record here, make artwork uniform, make it all sound good and analog, befitting of the eras I'm aping." It sounds like he says. Sultan plays all the instruments on this great debut. Mastered by Tim Warren. Label by Johnny Sampson. Sultan / Chompazoid also plans on releasing new and old recordings from his own bands, too, like Spaceshits, Sexareenos and King Khan & BBQ.

Look Who's Coming To Town (Please Let It Snow)' / 'Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer' by The Manhattan Love Suicides from Leeds is one of the four singles released as part of the fourth edition of the Snowflakes Christmas Singles Club. 'Look Who's Coming To Town (Please Let It Snow)', an original, sounds like the script of a 1960s horror movie, but the kind that you only find in that dusty cult video store somewhere in a dark alley of a mediumsized city. The song is an angry sounding snarling creature which picks up where the band's recent single 'Bikini Party / Birthday Kill' left off, and brings both The Primitives and Sonic Youth to mind. Listen to the song, and find out who is coming to town and why it is so important that it will snow.

Genre:Rock / Indie
All the elements people loved with Temples’ debut, Sun Structures, remain intact, but this time, there is a noticeable evolution presented from the outset. It’s clear Volcano is the sound of Temples squaring up to their potential, immediately evident with “Certainty.” Its beefed-up beats reveal an expanded sonic firmament, one in which bright synth hooks and insistent choruses circle around each other over chord sequences that strike just the right balance between nice and queasy. “If there’s a sense of scale,” says frontman James Bagshaw, “It was really just a result of implementing a load of things that we didn’t know about the first time around. We didn’t even have a subwoofer to listen back to things that we did on Sun Structures, so there was nothing below 50Hz on that record. We didn’t even know those frequencies were there!”Entirely self-produced and written by all four members of the band, Temples’ melodies seem to come effortlessly. There are sun-dazed numbers and lysergic dream-pop songs and those where synth and mellotron interweave to beguiling effect. One thing is certain; it’s harder to spot the influences this time around. Mystical language has been supplanted by something more direct. They’ve been broken down and blended together – fossilized into a single source of creative fuel, resulting in a sound that is undoubtedly Temples. As described by co-founding member Warmsley, “we discovered a lot as we went along, and the excitement at having done so radiates outwards.”

This unpredictable sonic sensibility is threaded together by melody but never bound to it. Turn Into offers a snapshot of her musical evolution up to this point. 2016 also saw her release a one-off 7-inch on Fat Possum Records in addition to embarking on her first proper tour with Mitski and Japanese Breakfast.

Originally self-released as a 7’’ in 1982, Plath release is definitely one of the obscure gems of the Italian underground. Plath were a duo from Prato, formed in 1982 by Silvia Innocenti (voice, bass guitar) and Fabrizio Lucarini (synth, drum machine). Plath were influenced by Throbbing Gristle and early Cabaret Voltaire works, moving in between two essential thematic actions: first, the constant search of a sound which aims to reflect the current reality as they were interpreting it and, second, the constant exposure of their anarchist ideological thinking against the established political and social system. While the A-Side includes the original single in full, with the classic “I Am Strange Now”, recently unearthed by Alessio Natalizia/Not Waving in his monumental “Mutazione” compilation released by Strut Records in 2013, the B-side instead contains a killer percussive edit of Alessandro Adriani made for the craziest mental dancefloors. Mastering by Ruud 66 and original 7’’ graphics reworked for this issue.

Oakland’s psychedelic savant, Greg Ashley, has gone through a tremulous year. Gentri cation sent an eviction notice to the doors of his Creamery Analog studio — where he recorded such acts as The Dutchess and the Duke, TV Ghost and The Mantles over almost a decade-long residence. After a spiritual retreat to Texas, Ashley returned to the Bay Area and began work on a new studio, inhabiting a church just blocks from his former location. In celebration of this transcendence, Bad Diet is releasing two archival nuggets that exhibit Greg Ashley’s genius, described by the SF Weekly as, “a true psychedelic visionary, maybe the greatest of his generation.” “Living Underground” is a slip inside the peak years of Ashley’s widely-lauded act, The Gris Gris. Recorded in 2005, the lost gem’s haunting vocals and pounding back beat combine in a ritual resurrecting the band’s nest offerings. It also grounds The Gris Gris’ stake as progenitors of the Bay Area’s contemporary psych and garage scene. “Psychopathia Homosexualis” provides a glamorous look into the heart of Sir Lord Von Raven, Ashley’s Oakland supergroup with Eric Von Raven (Time Flys), Josh Miller (Wrong Words) and the late, great Jay Bronzini. It was recorded live at the Creamery in 2010.

When you listen to the Shacks' self-titled debut EP, you might imagine that Shannon Wise and Max Shrager are mucholder than their respective 18 and 20 years. But when Shannon’s whisper-vocals breeze through the speakers, you hearthe youthfulness of their sound which then in turn explains the fearlessness of their songwriting. Both vaguely familiarand completely fresh, The Shacks are one of the most interesting NYC bands to surface in a minute.Since the release of their first single, "Strange Boy," which they recorded with El Michels Affair, The Shacks have beencompared to 90’s indie icons like Mazzy Star, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Broadcast. As good as those bands are, youwouldn’t find a single one of their records in Max and Shannon’s music collection. All these bands are drinking fromthe same well, just 20 years apart.Highlights from The Shacks EP include a cover of the Ray Davies-penned "Strange Effect," which Shannon sings as ifit were written for her, giving the song an unnerving edge that’s way more interesting than Dave Berry’s tepid original.Also included on the EP is "Orchids," one of Leon Michels and Max Shrager's first co-productions, recorded at thelegendary Diamond Mine studios. "Orchids" is a truly original piece of music that showcases The Shacks’adventurousness in the studio. "Left It With the Moon" is a lo-fi lullaby written by Shannon and recorded to 4 trackcassette at Max’s home studio in Princeton, NJ. And "Hands In Your Pockets" features the Frightnrs rhythm sectionlaying down a pitch-perfect rocksteady backing track behind Shannon’s deadpan delivery a la Jane Birkin.

Following the Byrds-indebted bliss of Primal Scream’s debut, Sonic Flower Groove, bandleader Bobby Gillespie reassembled a lineup and literally grew his hair long to prepare for the uninhibited riffs and leather-laden swagger of the group’s eponymous sophomore album in 1989. Fans were surprised—just like when Gillespie’s old group The Jesus & Mary Chain swapped noisy gauze for high-production sheen—but time has shown thrilling reinvention to be Gillespie’s greatest asset. The shift is told by the cover art: instead of Sonic Flower Groove’s nod to 1960s collegiate artist chic, Primal Scream’s cover depicts little more than wild manes in motion—the visual analog to both the blues-spew thump of “Ivy Ivy Ivy” and the incredible, Beggars Banquet-era Rolling Stones homage, “I’m Losing More Than I’ll Ever Have” (which made history again as the basis for Primal Scream’s crossover hit, “Loaded”). But Primal Scream also slays with softness: “You’re Just Dead Skin to Me” features emotive keys from Felt’s Martin Duffy, and “You’re Just Too Dark to Care” movingly evokes Alex Chilton’s hushed despair on Big Star’s 3rd. Soon after, Screamadelica christened the band with a new identity, but Primal Scream established a mode to which Gillespie would return on 1994’s excellent Give Out But Don’t Give Up.

Less than a year after their debut full-length landed on year-end lists from the likes of AV Club, Paste, SPIN, and Noisey, and earned praise from sources as diverse as Pitchfork to People magazine, Beach Slang return with their sophomore album A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings. Written and recorded in the midst of a relentless touring schedule that found the band selling out sweat drenched shows across the U.S. and Europe, A Loud Bash is exactly what its title implies—a raucous collection of shout-along punk rock anthems anchored by frontman James Alex's trademark heart-on-sleeve lyricism.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Bad Sports return with a jaw-dropping new 12-inch! While the band hasn’t released anything in a couple of years, the individual members have been anything but idle during that time. Orville Neely continues his slow takeover of the world with rock juggernauts Obn IIIs, while Daniel Fried and Gregory Rutherford’S band Video got signed to Jack White’s label Third Man Records, and has been touring ever since. The pair have also been touring a ton as one half of Radioactivity, who released the stunning Silent Kill on Dirtnap last year. Originally conceived as a series of three singles, the band and label realized that the individual seven songs worked as one piece. Living With Secrets is another step forward for Bad Sports—moving away from both the ebullient punk/power pop of 2011’s Kings Of The Weekend and the anything-goes grimy punk of 2014’s Bras, this EP is their darkest, most powerful, and weirdest. The lyrics are bleak and desperate, but the music is more dangerously catchy than ever.
