Gravedigging
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Innovative Leisure)
23,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The Buttertones’ Gravedigging is more a movie waiting to happen than an album—or asoundtrack just waiting to inspire a movie, with scene after scene of action, tension andrelease set to a sound that takes everything good and true about American music beforethe Beatles prettied it up (surf, sweet soul, the boss saxophone-overdrive garage of theNorthwest wailers like the Sonics) and matches it to punk energy, post-punk precision andthe kind of personality that blows the circuit-breakers at a backyard party.Recorded at Jazzcats studio in LongBeach—home-away-from-home to fellow InnovativeLeisure artists Hanni El Khatib, Tijuana Panthers, Wall of Death and more—in the spring of2016, the sessions were supercharged with hard-won live experience from endlessstreet-level shows and relentless midnight-to-six rehearsals at the Buttertones lock-out.Think of it this way: you might not yet know how the band that made Gravedigging is goingto land—but you know it’s going to hit hard.

Ravioli Me Away
Living Is A Myth
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
14,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Un-defined by genre, Ravioli Me Away’s high energy, dangerously ambitious and delusional jazzy-post-pop-punk-hip-funk sound with stylistically schizophrenic motifs span all-known past, present and future human cultures and sub-cultures. This is social realism soaked through with a heady dose of fantasy, idiosyncratic poetics, keyboard flurries and vocal vicissitudes described as “vintage drag-queen Bananarama Youtube footage played with twice the sass and in double time with an incredulous broadband connection reflected in the eyes of a much overworked and downright exhausted Julie Burchill on acid.”Ravioli Me Away are Sian Dorrer, Rosie Ridgway and Alice Theobald and more recently, have recruited Monika Kroll as an intermittent member.Since forming in January 2013, they have performed extensively at various events, venues, festivals and galleries in the UK, France, Switzerland, Germany, Czech-Republic and Holland. They have also recorded and released records and appeared on radio shows on 6 Music, Resonance FM and NTS Radio.Theobald, Dorrer and Ridgway have a mutual interest in identity, politics, human relationships, love, gender, class and current affairs, and use performance, art and music as a means to explore, debate and express such interests using of metaphor, clichés pop references and repetition. To date they have together written and produced up to 30 songs and have performed over 80 concerts, each high-energy and curated to reflect a different theme or character inspired from everyday life ie. City workers, beauty queens, painter and decorators, sportsmen and beatnik poets to more abstract interpretations of everyday life such as luggage, snacks and e-bay. These themes are evident in costume, visuals and stage presence. More recently they have been developing their own individual alter-ego/characters for their performances.

Third Sight
LP | 2016 | UK | Original (El Paraiso)
21,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Connecticut's Landing have specialized in a mild and rural kind of psychedelia for almost two decades. 'Third Sight' - recorded specifically for El Paraiso Records' Impetus series - builds on the hallucinatory soundscapes of the band's earliest days. There's a unique sense of motoric drift to these four long pieces, and an or-ganic blend of rock instrumentation and analog electronics that brings to mind Eno's best 1970s collaborations. But the group's flair for fuzzy drones and new weirdsy commune-folk also betrays their affiliation with the experimental American east coast scene - playing shows with Bardo Pond and releasing a split EP with Windy & Carl among other things throughout their career.

Release:2015 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Mit "Paper Mâché Dream Balloon" wird am 13.11.2015 das neue Album von King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard via Heavenly erscheinen. Als die Reise des musikalischen Kollektivs um Frontmann Stu Mackenzie 2010 als Garage-Rock Band begann, konnte wohl keiner ahnen, welchen Facettenreichtum die Band entwickeln würde. Egal ob Psychedelic Rock mit stark verzerrten Sounds, Krautrock-Trips wie zuletzt auf "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" oder fast schon jazzartigen Einlagen wie auf dem letzten Album "Quarters!", King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard wussten immer schon zu überraschen. So auch geschehen auf dem neuen Album "Paper Mâché Dream Balloon", das komplett mit akustischen Instrumenten eingespielt wurde und dem es dennoch nicht an magischer Kraft mangelt.

LP | 2015 | EU | Original (Full Contact)
16,19 €* 17,99 € -10%
Release:2015 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
On 'Marshland', his second solo album, Janne Westerlund uses mainly banjo and dulcimer to accompany his unpolished and distinctive delivery. In order to emphasize the difference to the bands he plays in -Circle, Plain Ride and Pharaoh Overlord- he keeps the arrangements of his solo songs starkly sparse, using additional elements such as percussion and drums only on a few tracks. Although obviously influenced by American folk and blues, he also draws inspiration from medieval music and Scandinavian melancholic tonality.

Mushroom is back with their first new release in several yearsFor nearly 20 years, Mushroom (from the San Francisco Bay Area) has produced their own brand of mostly instrumental 1970’s inspired psychedelic grooves – as well as collaborated (on stage and/or in the studio) with the likes of Krautrock legends Faust, Soft Machine’s Kevin Ayers, Daevid Allen of Gong, and Bundy K. Brown of Tortoise.“Psychedelic Soul On Wax (Eldridge Cleaver vs. Timothy Leary)” is eighteen minutes and fifty-four seconds on Side A that blends a non-stop Krautrock groove with a 1971 speech by Eldridge Cleaver announcing his 'house arrest' of Tim Leary in Africa!Side B are 3 somewhat shorter pieces, including a deranged take on the HAIR rock-opera classic ""Let The Sun Shine In"" featuring Ralph Carney of Tin Huey & the Tom Waits Band on horns! Plus two more lengthy workouts featuring the mellotron sounds of Matt Cunitz from Brightblack Morning Light & His Golden Messenger - weird, wicked, psychedelic instrumental music!

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
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.”

In Life Will See You Now, we will see much of the same storytelling style, but with some new sounds.

While writing Forget, Xiu Xiu released the lauded Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, collaborated with Mitski on a song for an upcoming John Cameron Mitchell film, and scored an experimental reworking of the Mozart opera, The Magic Flute.All of this frantic, external activity lead to a softly damaged dreaminess and broadened intent that has not been heard before in other Xiu Xiu works. 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.

Sister Mystery is Jennifer Goodridge (Your Enemies Friends, Seaspin, and Cold & Lovely), Brian Grover (Horse the Band, Thriller, and currently Tired) and Jason of the Moonrats Coming from Southern California, Sister Mystery brings a sincere voice to the occult aesthetic revival. The band's moody blend of shoegaze, post-punk, and experimentation is reflected in the painful ecstasy of its sound, creating an atmosphere akin to dancing in the desert. Only 250 copies made!

LP | 1982 | US | Reissue (Matador)
24,99 €*
Release:1982 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Providing a retrospective of their early years, Mission Of Burma have remained one of the world’s most influential post-punk bands. The album ‘Vs’, released in 1982, was to be Mission Of Burma’s only full length studio album with the original line up before disbanding. Noise driven and melodic throughout, they kick off proceedings with ‘Secrets’ where Clint Conley’s vocals contrast Roger Miller’s unrestrained outbursts. ‘New Nails’ fiercely attacks religion where Miller’s repetitive cries of ‘don’t make an idol of me’ leave a lasting impression before tackling mental decline on ‘Mica’. Unyielding with acerbic energy, ‘Vs’ angular and abrasive post punk combines raucous power chords and Peter Prescott’s dynamic drumming with heavy bass lines, all of it bound by Martin Swope’s subtle tape manipulations which seep into the subconscious. The album was produced by Rick Harte founder of the Ace Of Hearts record label, who had also produced their debut single and EP. The acclaimed LP also featured in Pitchfork’s ‘Top 100 albums of the 1980s’ with them hailing it as “a massive legacy”. Boston residents Miller, Conley and Prescott originally formed the group back in 1979 with Swope soon brought in to add tape loops (Bob Weston from Shellac took over his role after the band reformed). At the height of their early career Mission Of Burma shared stages with the likes of Sonic Youth, Gang Of Four, Pere Ubu and Black Flag, as their acclaimed live shows became legendary and were known for being some of the loudest. On their way to commercial success, they split in 1983 when Roger Millar’s tinnitus became too severe. Following the break-up, musicians like Nirvana, Fugazi and Pixies began citing them as a major influence and covers began to emerge from REM, Moby, Graham Coxon and Syd Straw. Reforming in 2002 following some live shows, their more recent releases reaffirm them as one of the most significant bands of today.
