Horse Lords - The Common Task
Horse Lords
The Common Task
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Northern Spy)
19,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Horse Lords make music for the liberation of mind and body. The Baltimore quartet's new album The Common Task points to a utopian, modernist ideal, recalling as diverse a cohort as The Ex and Glenn Branca to raucous Saharan guitar music, Albert Ayler, and James Tenney. As evidenced by the album's title, as well as songs like 'Fanfare for Effective Freedom' and 'People's Park,' the band's penchant for radical politics is especially accentuated on this release.

Horse Lords are the Pied Piper of experimental music and radical thought. Their music is unabashedly fun, and experiencing it in a live context is an experience of collective ecstasy, each body moving to its own notion of what the beat may be. By showing just how joyous it can be to imagine new futures and possibilities, by making us dance and howl with each tectonic shift, they show how dazzling the path towards utopia could be.
Jeremy Cunningham - The Weather Up There
Jeremy Cunningham
The Weather Up There
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Northern Spy)
19,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Chicago drummer and composer Jeremy Cunningham wrote The Weather Up There in response to the loss of his brother Andrew, who died in a home invasion robbery in 2008. Co-produced by Jeff Parker and Paul Bryan, and engineered by Paul Bryan and John McEntire, this new work confronts the tragedy of violence and examines the acute ripple effect on several people's lives through the lens of memory, response, and collage. Further deepening the textural and emotive impact, Cunningham formed a 'drum choir' for these recordings, comprised of close mentors and colleagues Mike Reed, Makaya McCraven, and Mikel Patrick Avery. Cunningham also taps regular collaborators Ben LaMar Gay, Jaimie Branch, Tomeka Reid, Dustin Laurenzi, Matt Ulery, and Josh Johnson.

Shilpa Ray - Door Girl
Shilpa Ray
Door Girl
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Northern Spy)
24,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
"Shilpa Ray Stars as Door Girl" beckons from the cover of Door Girl in pink neon - reminiscent of nothing less than the pink lipstick that spells out New York Dolls on the cover of their similarly explosive record. Her song titles are gems that glitter with scorn - "Shilpa Ray's Got a Heart Full of Dirt," "You're Fucking No One," and "Morning Terrors Nights of Dread," to name a few - and underscore how extortionately rare good song titles truly are. Her voice - singular in modern popular music because of its radiant imperfection - takes neither prisoners nor guff as it offers up continuous caustic commentary on the human condition. Hers are observations gleaned from endless nights watching people in their natural habitat. These are not pretty pictures, shot through as they are with violence in the obvious and menace in the failures. Alternately dreamlike and lifelike, Door Girl carves out its portraits of nightlife with reverberation and feedback, unveiling an expansive level of production quality through which even the perfectly-recorded snare drum is as present and as crisp as the bad breath of the drunk falling asleep at your elbow. Each instrument is so clearly defined in the presentation as to become one of those selfsame dive bar habitués on which Shilpa Ray shines a stark Klieg light of absolute truth. It is the story of a city as it lives and breathes at its most basic levels, as told by an artist who is equal parts musician and magician and for whom each song is a different life she has lived and breathed and experienced like few others have.

Jason Stein's Locksmith Isidore - After Caroline
Jason Stein's Locksmith Isidore
After Caroline
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Northern Spy)
19,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Jason Stein is a ubiquitous presence on the world class Chicago improvised music scene and beyond. He's a staunch force with a monogamous passion for his instrument of choice, the darkly sonorous and notoriously difficult bass clarinet. But Stein thrives as a leader also, as witnessed by his critically-acclaimed recent quartet release. However, no other aggregation he works with has quite the road legs, perspective, and intimacy of Locksmith Isidore, his long running trio with bassist Jason Roebke and drummer Mike Pride. Of late, this decade old unit has toured arenas throughout the US opening for comedy star Amy Schumer, who happens to be Stein's kid sister. Presenting avant jazz in such massive venues as Madison Square Garden and LA's Forum has cemented Locksmith Isidore's very special bond, which is more than apparent on their fourth album After Caroline.¨
Okkyung Lee & Christian Marclay - Amalgam
Zs - Xe
Zs
Xe
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Northern Spy)
18,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Zs is devoid of genre and unclassifiable. Since 2000, founder Sam Hillmer has remained its purveying constant, and with the addition of loose-limbed, meditative percussionist Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien, Man Forever), and virtuosic avant-classical guitarist and composer Patrick Higgins, the band has found its epochal lineup. The trio’s vision is crystallized on Xe, Zs’ first full-length featuring the new trio, and first proper since 2010’s critically acclaimed New Slaves. Hillmer, Fox and Higgins—three supremely heavy sages who exchange their pulsating phraseology with a mind-blowingly telepathic bent—in one room, nailing Xe in one miraculous live take, manned by Higgins and noted A-list producer Henry Hirsch (Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Mick Jagger) at the boards in Hudson, New York’s Future-Past Studios. The music on Xe even transcends artistic mediums, influencing renowned visual artist Tauba Auerbach, who believed Zs was examining the same structural concerns as her own work. She created two 3D steel helix sculptures derived from the scientific varieties known as the Z helix and S helix, which were then arranged and photographed in various configurations for the Xe album art. The album’s minimalist, esoteric vibes aligned perfectly with Auerbach’s mind-bending and shadowy metallic sculptures. The artist attests to have never worked so hard on a record cover, nor gotten so much out of doing so, creatively and personally.
