Die Bunte Seite Der Macht Limited Mini Fan Edition
Box Set | 2017 | EU | Original (Berliner Plattenbau)
29,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Pop
Nur eine Box pro Kunde!SDP dürften in ihrer Karriere bereits alles erreicht haben. Dazu zählen sieben Alben, die Platin-Single “Ich will nur, dass du weißt”, über 200 Mio. Views auf YouTube, unzählige Headliner-Gigs auf sämtlichen großen Festivals und ausverkaufte Konzerthallen der letzten Tour mit knapp 60.000 Besuchern. Trotzdem lässt sich das Spandauer Duo nicht gern in Schubladen stecken und überrascht immer wieder mit ihrem genreübergreifenden Kreativmix. Ihre Leichtigkeit und Unbekümmertheit haben Vincent und Dag sich auf dem neuen Album erhalten und so verwundert es nicht, dass das Ohrwurmpotenzial wieder mal auf Anschlag gepegelt ist. Ihre selbst geschaffene Musikmischung, die aus allem besteht, was Vincent und Dag lieben und musikalisch fühlen, bedient sich wieder Punk-, Pop-,Rock- und Dancehall-Anleihen (das ist sicher nicht alles) und lässt ein einzigartiges, stilistisches Spektrum entstehen. Die andere Gabe der beiden Musikautodidakten, neben ihren eingängigen Partytexten, ist ein feines Gespür für gesellschaftlich relevante Themen. Manchmal satirisch, manchmal charmant, manchmal unverschämt deutlich, sprechen SDP Probleme an, die jeden Einzelnen oder ganze Gemeinschaften betreffen. Jetzt kehren sie auf die Bühnen zurück mit ihrem neuen Album „Die Bunte Seite Der Macht“. Die „Limited Fan Edition Box“ enthält das CD Album und weitere Goodies für den echten SDP-Fan. Allerdings sind Details dazu noch Geheimsache.

Hot Thoughts Purple Vinyl Edition
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Matador)
22,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
’Hot Thoughts’’ is the bravest, most sonically inventive work of Spoon’s career. With all due respect to earlier efforts that have made the quintet both critically acclaimed and a commercial contender, preconceptions about this band are about to be obliterated. That’s not to say ‘Hot Thoughts’ doesn’t have a requisite supply of infectious earworms but there’s a lyrical bent that’s as carnal as it’s crafty, and a newfound sense of sonic exploration that results in the genresmasher Spoon have flirted with in the past but not fully consummated.

Flying Microtonal Banana is King Gizzard’s first-ever experience in microtonal tuning, which features intervals smaller than a semitone and not found in customary Western tuning octaves. “Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for (lead singer and guitar player) Stu Mackenzie,” drummer Eric Moore explained. “The guitar was modified to play in 24-TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal.”

Oz Waves
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Efficient Space)
19,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Efficient Space continues to expose Australia's esoteric musical history with Oz Waves - a collection of 80s DIY recordings, compiled by odd wave anthropologist Steele Bonus. Definitive proof that inhabitants of the Down Underground were links in a global network of creative kooks, Oz Waves connects those who utilised mobile recording rigs and small press releases to create and disseminate misfit synth-punk, tape loop experiments and inner city pop. Through overseas mail order exchanges, anonymous groups like Zerox Dreamflesh could find place on Belgian compilations, while Chris and Cosey lullabied their son to sleep with Irena Xero and her interdisciplinary art collective Zip. Bonus selects 10 survivors from the fertile period (1982-1989), most of which were only issued on cassette in tiny editions of 5 to 100 copies. M Squared affiliates Prod join the extraterrestrial Software Seduction, He Dark Age's minimal wave neglect and the irreverent cut ups of The Horse He's Sick and MK Ultra & the Assassins of Light. The remaining tracks have been sourced from musicians' private archives and are being officially released on Oz Waves for the first time - Andy Rantzen's industrial dub Itch-E & Scratch-E precursor, the buoyant vocal-drone of Ironing Music and Moral Fibro, Sydney's short lived answer to Weekend and Marine Girls.

Moon Duo
Occult Architecture Volume 1 Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Sacred Bones)
19,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Meaning all things magick and supernatural, the root of the word occult is that which is hidden, concealed, beyond the limits of our minds. If this is occult, then the Occult Architecture of Moon Duo’s fourth album - a psychedelic opus in two separate volumes released in 2017 - is an intricately woven hymn to the invisible structures found in the cycle of seasons and the journey of day into night, dark into light.  Offering a cosmic glimpse into the hidden patterning embedded in everything, Occult Architecture reflects the harmonious duality of these light and dark energies through the Chinese theory of Yin and Yang. In Chinese, Yin means “the shady side of the hill” and is associated with the feminine, darkness, night, earth. Following this logic, Vol. 1 embraces and embodies Moon Duo’s darker qualities — released appropriately on February 3, in the heart of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

Temples - Volcano Neon Orange Vinyl Edition
Temples
Volcano Neon Orange Vinyl Edition
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Heavenly)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
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.”

It's tough to keep up with garage rock's wunderkind Ty Segall. Betweenhis steady release schedule of LPs, raucous side projects like Fuzz andGoggs, and collaborations with fellow songwriters Mikal Cronin andTim Presley, it's as if a season can't pass without Segall dropping a newrecord. And that's not even taking his cassettes, splits, and EPs intoconsideration. Fortunately, Segall's bottomless well of creativity,production savvy, and boundless fascination with the various niches ofthe rock world makes every new release an occasion to celebrate.Suicide Squeeze Records is proud to offer the latest entry in Ty'simpressive canon with the Sentimental Goblin 7". Side A features “Pan”,a fuzz-soaked proto-metal jam that links Beatles' pioneering guitar dirge“I Want You (She's So Heavy)” to later lurch classics by Sir LordBaltimore and Pentagram. In true Segall fashion, he switches gears onside B and conjures the erudite pop appeal of T. Rex and Bowie withthe lush glam rocker “Black Magick”. Suicide Squeeze Records is proudto release Sentimental Goblin to the world on March 17, 2017. Theinitial pressing consists of 1000 copies on half blue / half yellow vinyl andincludes a download card. In a testament to his restless creativity andtireless work ethic, Ty also provides the artwork for the record.

It’s pop as high art, delivered with total confidence and focus.

On In Mind, the fourth full-length record from Real Estate, the band fine-tunes the winsome songwriting and profound earnestness that made previous albums—2009’s Real Estate, 2011’s Days, and 2014’s Atlas—so beloved. Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Cole M. Greif-Neill (Julia Holter, Beck), In Mind delivers the same kind of warmth and soft-focus narratives that one has come to expect from the band—pastoral guitars, elegantly deployed arrangements, a sort of mindful melancholy—but there is also a newly adventurous sonic edge to the proceedings.It offers a mild shifting of the gears, positing a band engaged in the push/pull of burgeoning adulthood. Reflecting a change in lineup, changes in geography, and a general desire to move forward without looking back, the record casts the band in a new light —one that replaces the wistful ennui of teenage suburbia with an equally complicated adult version.

Talking about the making of 'Flying Microtonal Banana', Eric Moore of the band said:Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu. The guitar was modified to play in 24-TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal. The record features the modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards and harmonica as well as a Turkish horn called a Zurna.Shimmering, hypnotic and propulsive and powered along, as ever, by the metronomic beat of two drummers, Flying Microtonal Banana takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its predecessor, Nonagon Infinity which was released earlier this year. Trance like, in parts clipped and concise yet deeply psychedelic, it reveals yet another musical side to a band seemingly in perpetual motion.

Ears
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Western Vinyl)
20,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Composer, performer, and producer Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith's new album EARS is an immersive listening experience in which dizzying swirls of organic and synthesized sounds work together to create a sense of three-dimensional space and propulsion. Dense and carefully crafted, each of the songs on EARS unfolds with a fluid elegance, while maintaining a spontaneous energy, and a sprightly sense of discovery. Listeners familiar with her previous album Euclid (an album that prompted Dazed to call her “…one of the most pioneering musicians in the world.”) will no doubt notice her heavier use of vocals on EARS. On all but one song, her gently ecstatic swells of vocals emerge to soar over a dense jungle of synths and woodwinds. Much of the album's warmth and energy stems from Smith's use of the versatile analog synthesizer, the Buchla Music Easel. According to Smith, “…nothing compares to the sound of a Buchla. In my mind a Buchla synthesizer has the most human sound in it. I wanted to show the Easel’s versatility and range of motion within a live set. I also wanted to spend as little time as possible in front of the computer during the creation.” After initially composing on the Buchla, she wrote arrangements for a woodwind quintet, added vocals, and further refined the pieces with granular synthesis techniques she developed in her sound design work (she contributed sound design to Panda Bear's “Boys Latin” video, and handled sound design and original compositions for Brasilia co-written by and starring Reggie Watts). Though the pallet of sounds Smith employs on EARS is darker than the ebullient tenor we heard on Euclid, she's careful to let in just enough light to covey a feeling of cosmic bliss and transcendence. Kinetic arpeggios of synths pulse, often buoying her graceful vocal mantras, while woodwinds breathe and flutter, emulating the wildlife Smith observed while growing up on the West Coast (she even studied recordings of slowed down bird calls prior to composing these pieces). Though some of her gestures echo the musical tropes used by early minimalist composers, the world she creates on EARS is uniquely hypnotic and full of life, not unlike Miyzaki's film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, which she cites as an inspiration. EARS is a masterful articulation of Smith's vision, which she achieved in part by spending time preparing her mind prior to composing the album. As she explains, “I am very intentional about the months leading up to when I am going to compose something new. I really trust the subconscious and try and feed it only information I want it to feed back to me. I make playlists that I listen to nonstop, or have images I look at daily, or I go to places I want to be inspired by…I do all this prep work and then try and forget it when I am writing.” Listening to EARS, it's clear that her approach paid off, and that the seeds she planted within have born a vibrant and hyper-natural world that's as joyful to experience as the flora and fauna that inspired it.

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.

Bubbling up from his post-everything cesspit, $hit & $hine cups another killer album boff to the grill of Diagonal with Total $hit!, his 2nd LP and 3rd full release for Powell and Jaime Williams’ indomitable imprint.A rancid ruck of rock ’n roll and industrial entrails squeezed for sustenance and sploshed with classic ‘80s disco, Total $hit! is nothing if not a definitive Craig Clouse record; insistently playful, scatty and demented in equal measures, but with a couldn’t care less attitude that’s always refreshing and welcome around these parts.Following his grindcore lash Teardrops for Riot Season, this one is a return to the heavy truckin’ styles last heard on Everybody’s A Fuuckin Expert with Mego and the Good White Good Green for Glasgow’s Heated Heads, depositing nine examples of his nonchalant style at its most distended, unsettling and, funnily enough, its most funked-up and effective.He makes a big entrance with the blind-drunk swagger of Hot Shovel trammelling rabid tribal drums, grunts and pitched voices in a febrile hot mess, before Chklt Shk possibly betrays his no f**ks attitude with some of his canniest, adroit tweaks applied to what sounds like Anthony Shakir and MMM fighting over the last cubicle after a plate of bad seafood, then it’s back to twisted smiles and buckie-sloshing skank with the acrid disco nip of Long Island City.The record’s longest, murkiest section follows with the Jacko-shampling Dodge Pot dispensing a slimy hot streak of flatulent mongrel boogie that perhaps outstays its welcome, hence the entrance of two squabbling lasses who tell it where to go, which leaves us with a version of the recumbent coke standard White Horse ready for the knacker’s yard, plus a trio of saltier, off-the-wrist jags that only serve to agitate and infect the sore he’s been prodding at ’til this point.Let’s be fair: Total $hit! is not big or clever but, it is messy and fun; like the soundtrack to a lock-in at a boozer exclusively full of mad c*nts who were chucked out of every other place.

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.
Planning For Burial - Below The House
Planning For Burial
Below The House
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Flenser)
17,99 €*
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.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Throughout years of traveling, John Andrews has documented his life with his home recordings. His first record, Bit By The Fang, found him living in the amish country of Lancaster, PA. On his latest record, Bad Posture, he waves farewell to Pennsylvania and greets the wooded hills of Barrington, NH. These songs were written slowly and quietly throughout the winter, usually late at night next to the wood stove. It was recorded in Andrews’ barn with the doors ajar, welcoming the springtime — inviting the outside noises in. You can hear the crickets chirping and the occasional truck driving by. The songs themselves lend their hand like slow backwoods Beatles demos covered in a thin blanket of tape hiss. Andrews’ band, The Yawns, has been crystallized with staples from the New England freak scene: Rachel Neveu and Lukas Goudreault (MMOSS / Soft Eyes) and Joey Schneider. The album was mixed with headphones at the foot of Emma Critchett’s grave, who lived in the Yawns’ house during the 1800s. The record is an ode to her and all who have lived there. It paints a picture of living in the “freecountry” on the precipice of a rapidly changing political climate.

Moh Lhean Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Joyful Noise)
24,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The final words sung on the sixth album by WHY? are an apt place to begin: "Hold on, what's going on?" Because while there's much familiar about the oddly named Moh Lhean - mastermind Yoni Wolf's sour-sweet croon, his deadpan poet's drawl and ear for stunningly fluid psych-pop-folk-whatever arrangement - a great deal has changed in the four years that've passed since 2012's Mumps, Etc., an LP that honed the band's orchestral precision and self-deprecating swagger to a fine point.It's significant that this is the first fully home-recorded WHY? album since the project's 2003 debut.Made mostly in Wolf's studio and co-produced by his brother Josiah, the result is obsessive, of course, but also intimate, and flush with warmth and looseness.But the biggest transformation is a bit subtler. After years of eying his world, in part, with a cynical squint, Wolf here learns a new mode.While Moh Lhean never stoops to outright optimism, it chronicles our hero finding peace in the unknowing, trading the wry smirk for a holy shrug, and looking past corporeal pain for something more cosmic and, rest assured, equally weird.

21,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Swedish band Centralstödet contributes three tracks to Side A, each radiating the mysterious energy of music composed in the moment. The tactile frequencies of guitar and bass played through powerful vintage amps create an intimate atmosphere as the band stretches up and out of the fuzzy Sabbath grooves theyre best known for and into new territory. The Myrrors unleash two tracks (or rather, two parts of a longer thirty-minute piece) that is the best material they've produced in terms of ambition and execution. 2016's 'EntrancedEarth' saw The Myrrors achieve near-perfect balance in terms of arranged elements and free improvisation within lush and deeply meditative drones. Here, 'Rayuela' and 'Night Flower Codex' come from the same head space as 'Entranced Earth'. That is, songs inspired by jams performed live on their European tour. But these two songs have nailed what they've been hinting atfor ages. It's out-and-out kraut perfection: a cacophonous rain forest of flute, viola, tape loops, saxophone, and guitar that churns, cavorts, and babbles exuberantly under a cruisey jazz ride and sinuous bassline. Split release with Sky Lantern Records.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Sometimes it can take years to find your calling. Not so for Julie Byrne, whose power of lyrical expression and musical nous seems inborn. Her second album, Not Even Happiness, has evolved at its own pace. It spans recollections of bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast, and the irresolvable mysteries of love. Teaching herself guitar, having picked it up when her father became ill and could no longer play, Byrne also admits she can’t read music and doesn’t even listen to it all that much—her own vinyl was the first in her possession. “Without possessing the right words, I’d describe to [producer] Eric Littman (Phantom Posse) and Jake Falby (who contributed strings) the feeling I wanted a song to evoke, or I would take a shot at singing what was in my head. Though over all, their contributions to the record are entirely their own vision and their own power.” The follow-up to 2014’s critically lauded Rooms With Walls And Windows, this latest offers a bigger picture through a wider exploration of instruments and atmospherics, revealing an artist who has grown in confidence over time. Whether witnessing the Pacific Northwest for the first time (“Melting Grid”), the morning sky in the mountains of Boulder (“Natural Blue”), or a journey fragrant with rose water or reading Frank O’Hara aloud from the passenger seat during a drive through the Utah desert into the rainforest of Washington State (“The Sea As It Glides”), Not Even Happiness is Byrne’s beguiling ode to the fringes of life.

Standout track, “Wondering” is one of the catchiest boogie pop gems in the Xiu Xiu catalog, but like much of Forget, it still bears an underlying tension that manifests differently in each piece. Forget was produced by John Congleton (Blondie, Sigur Ros), Greg Saunier of Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu’s own Angela Seo.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Emerging from the distant light is the new double-LP from John Dwyer’s Thee Oh Sees—the first studio recordings to capture the muscular rhythm section of twin drummers Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon with ringer bassist Tim Hellman cracking spines. The groove and bludgeon one has come to expect from the band’s live shows is captured seamlessly here—they go from zero to head-splitter, and on the rare occasions they do let up on the gas a bit, you’re treated to some locked-in hypnotizers, too. The guitar sounds more colossal and ethereal at the same time, riding roughshod over the vacuum-sealed rhythm section, spiraling skywards, and diving into the emerald depths so quick your guts tingle. Synths, strings and smoke-soaked things crawl behind the scenes to make an extra far-out party platter, served on 45 RPM plates for most excellent listening quality.

Release:1997 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. Yet all of this would simply be showmanship if the songs weren't strong in themselves, and OK Computer is filled with moody masterpieces, from the shimmering "Subterranean Homesick Alien" and the sighing "Karma Police" to the gothic crawl of "Exit Music (For a Film)." OK Computer is the album that establishes Radiohead as one of the most inventive and rewarding guitar rock bands of the '90s. - allmusic.com

Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Universal Themes is the follow-up to Sun Kil Moon's 2014 album Benji, which unexpectedly became one of the most critically acclaimed albums of that year. Like that album, Universal Themes is extremely autobiographical, with songwriter Mark Kozelek spinning yarns about friends, family, his childhood, and other life experiences, with frequent references to boxing, music, films, television, and food. Lyrically, Universal Themes isn't as heavily fixated on death as Benji; instead, there are more songs like "Ben's My Friend," wherein Kozelek sings about his experiences traveling and playing shows. Opener "The Possum" does both, intertwining a story about an old dying possum with an anecdote about hanging out with Justin Broadrick before witnessing an incredible concert by his band Godflesh. "Little Rascals" and "Garden of Lavender" reference previous Kozelek songs by name, as well as fans' reactions to his lyrics, such as a heckler who asks if he really hates Nels Cline (he doesn't; his name just happened to rhyme). The album doesn't contain any references to Kozelek's notorious one-sided media feud with the War on Drugs, but it does include "Cry Me a River Williamsburg Sleeve Tattoo Blues" (complete with text message notification sounds), which starts out from the point of view of a jaded fan who complains that Kozelek won't play his old material, before going into several grim short stories about early deaths and tortures, in order to drive home the first-world-problems message. There's also plenty of lighter, more joyous recollections, such as Kozelek's memory of receiving his first guitar, and a multitude of stories about the best times of his life spent with family and friends. Most of the album's eight songs hover around nine or ten minutes in length, and there are stretches of spoken monologue rather than singing. Musically, Kozelek plays almost all of the instruments himself, other than drums from Steve Shelley and guest appearances by bassist Alex Schwartz and keyboards by Chris Connolly on one track each. A few of the songs rock out more aggressively than any of Kozelek's previous work, and he practically barks out "With a Sort of Grace I Walked to the Bathroom to Cry." As with all Sun Kil Moon albums, Kozelek produced the album himself, and his arrangements remain inventive and gorgeous; the lengthy songs are layered, multi-part suites that frequently switch tempos, drifting off into ethereal passages or graceful tarantellas before snapping back to the driving rhythm framing the story at hand. Like Benji, Universal Themes is a challenging listen, and some might view it as Kozelek's most indulgent album yet. But his brilliant musicianship and guitar playing combined with his fascinating storytelling skills ensure that his music is as poignant and life-affirming as ever, and the album is yet another success in his remarkable catalog. - Paul Simpson at allmusic.com

The whole thing is just gooey with tape manipulations, saturations and wah pedal, yet many tasty tidbits bubble to the top.

Fuzz is Ty Segall (drums / vocals), Charlie Moothart (guitar / vocals) and Roland Cosio (bass).They're heavy rock lifers-three California-bred dudes who have been refining their riffs and getting weird together since high school (which wasn't that long ago, actually). Fuzz was formed a couple years ago as a collaboration between Segall and Moothart, but only recently did the pair have sufficient time to guide the band out of side-project limbo and into a recording studio. Since then, they have released two singles, "This Time I Got a Reason" (Trouble In Mind) and "Sleigh Ride" (In The Red). Around the time of the latter, Cosio joined on bass. They are not dabblers or dilettantes. Fuzz flipped through used bins, hard drives and record collections of the world, seeking out the finest weirdo cuts. The band's self-titled debut LP dives deep, drawing inspiration from the more esoteric reaches of heavy metal pre-history. There are Sabbath and Hendrix nods, obviously, but on "Sleigh Bells" you might also catch a whiff of UK progressive blues business like The Groundhogs, particularly when the song quits its 10/4-time intro and reboots into full-bore choogle. Maybe you'll even glimpse the ghost of Australian guitar legend / sharpie guru Lobby Lloyde sniffing around "Raise." The mood is not light. The songs project a state of perpetual paranoia and eroding mental health. And as it should be, you know? It's a record for the burners. Vinyl includes digital download coupon.

inc. Joakim RemixNYC-based duo Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper write songs through a telepathic kinship they’ve developed since they started making music together. "We have these sort of unspoken criteria when we're writing music. We never really need to explain what that is but we both know when it's missing or when we've hit it.” The pair, AKA Tempers, are set to release their ‘Fundamental Fantasy’ EP via The Vinyl Factory on 24th February. Creating an emotional and tonal tension of sensual and mechanical impulses, their brand of dark electronica sets haunting song writing to a sinister disco beat, pop melodies floating in an almost industrial soundscape. It follows the band’s 2015 debut full-length ‘Services.’“‘Fundamental Fantasy’ is about exploring the creative scenery of romantic illusions. Our need for them, how we justify them to ourselves, that moment when the imagined story line collides with reality. The ways we fictionalize people to fit into the narratives we have about love - to reflect our own beliefs, virtues and flaws. It is about celebrating fantasies swelling and getting undone, so we can pick up the pieces and craft new ones that serve us better’ TempersMusically, ‘Fundamental Fantasy’ is an evolution in both song writing and process, while still tracing a clear line to their earlier output. Many of the EP's melodies were born of live improvisation, which helped them create an instinctive, natural immediacy within their electronic arrangements. The cover of the EP depicts the duo on the volcanic island of Stromboli, where they performed at The Volcano Extravaganza, an art and music festival curated by The Vinyl Factory. “It is a perfect landscape to mirror the mood of ‘Fundamental Fantasy.’ A seemingly idyllic place that is isolated from the outside world.”

It’s usually a rite of passage to get burned before the wounds can heal and often takes a new perspective to truly understand yourself. 18 months and 10,000kms travelled since many needles first dropped on her debut LP Listen To Formation Look For The Signs, it’s safe to say with new album Preservation, Nadia Reid now knows herself extremely well.

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!”

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
With Alice, Meatbodies return ascending toward ground level. A “heavy-pop” concept, metal on molly. Chad Ubovich, Patrick Nolan, and Kevin Boog step out in new form, soaring through diverse stories, tones, and characters. Dancing between quiet and loud, funk and doom, pop and noise. Their message preached is celestial and deafening, a sacred scripture for today’s world: a warbling rhodes piano, a liquifying electric guitar, a ghostly synthesizer skating across the sands of a twelve-stringed acoustic.The band digs deep into the rich soils of Earth to reveal the chaotic sensual vibrations underneath the fields we walk upon. Connecting our limbs, our mouths, our consciousness to the microcosms of the grime, all while being lit by black light. Captured wriggling and alive in San Francisco by Ubovich and Eric Bauer at The Bauer Mansion, this album is a step in the right direction, a new direction, a new way of thinking.Watching the futures, watching the world burn.

Wir haben wirklich Glück mit Schnipo Schranke. Dass in einer Zeit, in der alles Gestörte, Neurotische entweder zu riesigen Funmonstern aufgeblasen oder unter den Teppich gekehrt wird, plötzlich diese beiden Songwriterinnen um die Eckegekommen sind. Als vor anderthalb Jahren das Debüt von Daniela Reis und FritziErnst alias Schnipo Schranke herauskam, war man irgendwie irritiert bisbegeistert: Dass diese beiden jungen Frauen so derbe Sachen zu soentzückenden Melodien singen. Sie haben nicht locker gelassen und weitergetextet und komponiert, immer weiter: Auch um klar zu machen, dass diewirklich derben Sachen nichts mit "Pimmel" oder "Pisse" singen zu tun haben. Sondern mit Liebe, Tod, Vergangenheit, zum Beispiel. Sie können sich die Augen und die Ohren reiben: Wie schaffen die das wohl? Daniela Reis und Fritzi Ernst, haben im ersten Jahr ihrer Starwerdung so viel um die Ohren gehabt: Ihr Debütalbum haben sie in die Welt getragen, ständigKonzerte gespielt, Termine, Termine. Und währenddessen haben sie noch einsolches zweites Album produziert."Stars hängen an der Wand / Ich hänge in den Seilen" heißt es in dem Song"Stars". Das zweite Album hätte auch "Sick" heißen können, denn SchnipoSchranke sind voll gestört und darin sehr ehrlich. Sie hängen oft in den Seilen,sind aber total fleißig (sie würden sagen: streberhaft). Und diese Mischung istselten, um nicht zu sagen: Rare. Außerdem kann rare noch blutig heißen undindifferent, dünn, blau, halbgar, rar, kaum und nicht zuletzt eigentümlich.Sie haben sich das DIY-Konzept nicht ausreden lassen. Keine Streicher, keineGastmusiker, die ihre tollen Melodien umspielen. Wieder hat Ted Gaier (DieGoldenen Zitronen) das Album produziert, diesmal sind die drei nach Reichenowgefahren, in die ehemalige Scheune einer LPG des kommunistischenDeutschlands. "Wir wussten, was wir anders und besser machen wollten", sagtDaniela Reis. Ausgefuchster ist es geworden, rhythmisch und soundmäßiginteressanter, düsterer, wilder."Singer/Songwriter" im deutschen Kontext, da denken wir alle an Männer mitBart und Hut, die Stadien füllen, in dem sie sentimental von Heimat oder Frühersingen. Aber Früher und Heimat sind nicht sentimental und Liebe ist nicht diesesSchmusegefühl. Heimat sind auch die Schatten der Vergangenheit und Liebe istauch einsam auf dem Baum sitzen und warten, bis du endlich mal lüftest.Fassungslos dem Tod ins Gesicht schauen. Von all dem handeln die Songs vonSchnipo Schranke. Dass man durch Pipi, Sperma und Eiter reiten muss, es gehtum's Sich-Aushalten-Müssen, ums Eingeliefertwerden, um Dope, auf Tour sein,down sein, eine von den Geilen sein und dabei ist "Rare" auch immer wiederschrecklich lustig. Allzeit likebereit, das höchste der Gefuhle. Danke Schnipo.Autor: Christoph Twickel

Gurr - In My Head
Gurr
In My Head
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Duchess Box)
19,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
When two best friends start a band, songs get filled with inside jokes. In My Head takes the listener on a journey of Andreya Casablanca and Laura Lee's friendship, their life, and a step further into the world of Gurr.Having met in an American Studies class in Berlin, and after spending time in the US together, the US West coast sound was an obvious influence on their music, but Andreya and Laura draw from a wide set of pop culture references and personal experiences for their debut album. How to deal with one's own ignorance (first single release Moby Dick), let yourself go and have nights that turn into mornings (Breathless), or deal with the loss of love through someone else's perspective (Yosemite). Instead of telling stories of how it was, the two friends want to create a world of characters, stories and feelings everyone can relate to − and everyone can tell in their head for themselves.First Wave Gurrlcore they call their own genre, always with a slight and acknowledging nod to riot girl culture and yet stressing that they want to invent their own style − they pair straight−forward garage rock tunes with more psychedelic and wave elements on their debut album.

The DJ-Kicks series was born in Berlin in 1995, the first officially licensed DJ mix series available commercially. Over the past 20 years, the series has maintained a steady finger on the pulse of electronic music, earning a reputation as an essential barometer for what’s happening right now in the world of dance music. To celebrate the 50th entry in the series, we’ve brought the series back to Germany with a very special mix from the iconoclastic DJ Koze.Characteristically refusing to hew to any particular genre or style, Koze’s mix nonetheless creates a uniform color, incorporating underground hip-hop, melodic techno, indie pop, and vintage songwriting for a selection of tracks that is at once nostalgic and futuristic, melancholy and joyful.In order to incorporate a variety of styles, Koze created a number of custom edits and blends for the set. He also takes a novel approach to the concept of a “mix,” often eschewing long overlays in favor of serendipitous juxtapositions. “During the day I don’t have the requirement of hearing anything mixed in strict time,” he says. “Instead I focus on harmoniousness. The idea is more to create the appearance of a radio show, in the vein of John Peel for example. There is a giant cosmos of music running through my filter.”DJ-Kicks also includes a new DJ Koze original, in the form of the dilla-esque “I Have Not Been Everywhere But It’s On My List.” With its fragile soul samples, pinched, anxious-expressive vocal snippets, and sweet guitar riffs, the track sets a luxurious tone for the mix. The mood is gentle, laid back, extremely open and willingly to take risks.Special white vinyl

From The Lions Mouth
LP | 1981 | US | Reissue (1972)
18,99 €*
Release:1981 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
For THE SOUND's sophomore LP, the group decided to work with producer HUGH JONES (Echo & the Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, Bauhaus). The resulting album is more richly layered than their debut, fusing the band's atmospheric, affecting sound with a set of accessible yet invigorating songs. At the time, From the Lions Mouth gained great marks from the British music press, but did not break the band beyond its devoted cult of fans. Now it is considered a post-punk classic. A relatively restrained but vital follow-up to the charged and ragged Jeopardy, From The Lions Mouth proves that The Sound's critical stature among the post-punk elite was no fluke. A more robust recording budget allows them to explore a fuller, more cohesive sound, while ADRIAN BORLAND's lyrics are even more introspective (a jarring turn after the often political bent of Jeopardy). However despondent the singer's words became, the tone, as pointed out in the original NME review of the album, never descend into "pessimistic wallowing." The bleak nature of the lyrics would be the first true displays of Borland's mercurial nature. While he waged a tragically losing battle with depression for the rest of his life, it's hard not to view this album as an enduring and fascinating document of the beginnings of madness. Contains the unlisted bonus track "Hothouse."
