Arbouretum - Let It All In Black Vinyl Edition
Arbouretum
Let It All In Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
25,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Arbouretum's mystic folk-rock uses English folk, country blues, Americana and 70s psychedelia as touchpoints in their singular and distinctive sound and they've perfected the craft of storytelling, using a delicate interplay of melodies and prosaic lyrics. Let It All In is their most accomplished and evocative album yet. Guitarist and vocalist Dave Heumann's melodies and solos remain a central focus bolstered by the hypnotic rhythms of bassist Corey Allender and drummer Brian Carey, enhanced by Matthew Pierce's substantial yet understated keyboard figures. Each song a vivid scene or tale; Heumann's deep sense of spirituality and command of storytelling through myth and metaphor transports the listener to another world and time.
Let It All In is as instantly arresting as it is deeply reflective, with layers of sound and metaphor to unravel and interpret in their own way. It is a beautiful album that lives in and reflects the present moment while sounding as if it were forged in another era. Invoking nature as a backdrop for exploring humanity's relationship to time, history, and the present socio-political climate, often highlighting water as a ubiquitous if often unconscious presence in our lives. It acts as a subtle connecting thread through each piece's imagined landscapes, as well as taking on a symbol for change and spirit. The group has always centered around Heumann's remarkable voice and songwriting. His skill as a vocalist and guitar player have led to playing with artists such as Cass McCombs, Will Oldham, and many others. Let It All In is an invitation to jump into an album rich with timeless elegance. Their live shows and the otherworldliness of their music have made Arbouretum a cultish band. Their profound music endures and rewards fans both old and new. Arbouretum has added another exceptional work to their catalog that will weather changing fashions and reward those who explore their entirely unique world.

Wrekmeister Harmonies
We Love To Look At The Carnage Blood Orange Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
26,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
We Love to Look at the Carnage the 5th album by Brooklyn's Wrekmeister Harmonies, J.R. Robinson, and Esther Shaw, features frequent collaborator Thor Harris (Swans, Shearwater) percussion and Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu) electronics. The album was tracked in a cabin in the woods and mixed with Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans) at his BC Studios. Wrekmeister Harmonies, known for their large ensemble performances and intense recordings, create immense tension with spare arrangements and instrumentation. We Love to Look at the Carnage charts a restless journey beginning in the middle of the night and ending in the wee hours of the morning. Robinson's brooding lyrics grapple with phantoms both real and imagined, apparitions amplified by the feverish anxiety of insomnia. Shaw's ethereal vocals dueling with Robinsons baritone create a delicious tension. Her stellar keyboard and violin work are on full display providing moments of calm. In keeping with the album's stark lyrical content, much of We Love to Look at the Carnage was written in relative isolation. During the deep freeze of the New York winter, the duo decamped from their home in Brooklyn to a cabin in Woodstock. Wrekmeisters music has always drawn heavily on literature, this one is no exception. Influenced by Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, they find strength in stoicism. He explains: "hanging a more positive frame on the circumstances through the practice of negative visualization, .... things could always be worse". We Love to Look at the Carnage, traverses an emotional landscape, through a metaphorical night with moments of calm between the dark storms. It is a celebration of the beauty of endurance, the hope in stoically moving against the dark forces that invade our thoughts and lives. The spare instrumentation a potent reflection of the isolation of the insomniac.

John Parish - Bird Dog Dante
John Parish
Bird Dog Dante
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
John Parish, the twice Ensor nominated composer and Mercury
Prize winning producer delivers a brand new collection of songs,
including a duet with his longtime musical partner PJ Harvey.
Bird Dog Dante was completed in a busy year for Parish. On top of
being the musical director of the extended PJ Harvey band on their
Hope Six Demolition Project world tour, he produced acclaimed
albums for This is the Kit, Nadine Khouri, and Aldous Harding.
John is an exceptionally skilled artist with a youthful delight and a
creative open mind, as well as the ability to masterfully expand on
those ideas. It is clear why Uncut said that “Parish is one of Britain’s
most resourceful and imaginative studio craftsmen.”
John’s recent solo records were instrumental, and mostly included
works composed for flm. While Bird Dog Dante contains a few
pieces written for flm, it is his frst song oriented album in nearly a
decade. Working while touring allowed him to bounce lyrics off his
long time musical partner PJ Harvey. On “Sorry for Your Loss,” a song
about their close friend Mark Linkous, it seemed only ftting to take it
further and sing the song as a duet. The music is gentle and quiet, not
unlike its creator, and its heft comes through its emotional depth and
its subtle delights from unexpected sound choices and processing.

Sea And Cake, The
Any Day Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
20,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The Sea And Cake deliver a refreshingly intimate collection of elegantly
arranged, singular pop songs. For over two decades and 11 albums, The
Sea And Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate,
intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies.
Masters of subtlety, their compositions have continually evolved - through
minute alterations in texture, unusual approaches to lyrics, and creative
production choices. Any Day is testament to The Sea And Cake’s artistry,
song craft, and utterly unique sound. The results are intimate songs that
speak to the searcher in all of us. Through shifting instrumentation and
sonic exploration, the band invites you into a world that is both familiar
and unexpected.
Written and recorded following the departure of bassist Eric Claridge, Any
Day is The Sea And Cake’s frst album recorded as the trio of Sam Prekop,
Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire. Since the release of their last album
(2012’s Runner), the band have, in addition to shows, been creatively very
busy: Prekop focusing on solo modular synthesizer and soundtrack work,
including an acclaimed collaboration with artist David Hart, McEntire’s
recording and touring with Tortoise, and maintaining a busy schedule as
a recording engineer and producer, and Prewitt’s work as a cartoonist and
illustrator, in addition to duo performances with Prekop. The band, still
actively performing with bassist Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback),
were inspired by the challenge of composing as a smaller unit.
Any Day captures The Sea And Cake’s distinctive aural alchemy, melding
longing melancholy with hopeful excitement. In other hands the
combination seems impossible, but for The Sea And Cake, it’s effortless.

Eye Flys
Tub Of Lard Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
26,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
In just over a year since their initial inception, Eye Flys have established themselves as a force beyond reckoning. Their debut full-length Tub of Lard is stunningly potency full of piss and vinegar, scientific in its ability to pulverize everything in its path. Due in part to the considerable pedigree of the band's lineup (including members of Full of Hell, Backslider, Triac), the east coast-based quartet chew through steel-barbed riffs and off-kilter rhythms with exponential force. Their 2019 debut EP Context set an early precedent for just how lean and ruthless they can be. On Tub of Lard, Eye Flys launch that potential into 10 songs of maximum impact that find both raw power and subtlety in their simplicity.
Written during the summer of 2019, in between U.S. tours with the likes of Daughters and Torche, anxiety, agnosticism, distrust, and psychedelics are all invoked to question reality both personally and globally. The album's themes are unified by Jake Smith's search for deeper meaning in the chaos and uncertainty of the world, happy to demolish any opposition along the way.Though the band's members live spread throughout the east coast, Tub of Lard took shape collaboratively. Smith took on laying down the framework with drummer Patrick Forrest, while guitarist Spencer Hazard added riffs of his own, as well as layers of noise and texture that embellish the band's penchant for reckless abandon. The gravelly muck-laden basslines by Kevin Bernstein, who also recorded the album at his Developing Nations studio in Baltimore, are handily interwoven beneath the pummel of Patrick Forrest's drums into buffets that feel almost dizzying. Searing through the ensemble's taut rhythmic fray is Smith's bark, deftly riding the line between infuriated sceptic and maniacal punisher. Across Tub of Lard Eye Flys' merciless sound coalesces through a constant push and pull that leaves every moment thrilling: direct, hypnotic blunt-force grooves that twist and fray into feedback and oblivion

Lightning Bolt
Ride The Skies Baby Blue Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
26,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Ride the Skies is the 2nd album by Lightning Bolt, and this rerelease makes it available to fans for the first time since it's original release. Compared to their first album it's cleaner, tighter, recorded in studio rather than live. Which is not to say this is boring or sanitized in any way, Lightning Bolt never fail to make magic, filling a space with loud, raw sound. Sounds of synth or guitar turn out to be bass, and riffs become patterns, become a beat in the background, become a wall of noise, become a clear sound above it all. Lightning Bolt are known for the sound that truly comes into it's own in this album. Outside of their 7 acclaimed albums, they're known for frequent & exhilirating live shows, and this reputation has created a market for their older titles. Ride the Skies is rereleased with deluxe packaging featuring jacket art that was designed by Brian Chippendale for the original release but has never been realized until now. Recent Thrill Jockey Lightning Bolt re-releases seem to move as quickly as the Brians playing live, as old and new fans jump at the rare opportunity to finally get an old favorite in a shiny new jacket."

Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
"Hypermagic Mountain is Lightning Bolt's fourth, most well-oiled album: song-by-song it chugs into rockier Van Halen, Fucking Champs, or Orthrelm territory." - Pitchfork
Hypermagic Mountain, Lightning Bolt's 4th album has been unavailable for nearly a decade since it's 2005 release. Back as a double LP including a full drawing by Brian Chippendale as the D side Etching! The package includes a large scale 4-page book (previous pressings included a cd size book). Recorded at Machines with Magnets and Lightning Bolt's home by Dave Auchenbach. Lightning Bolt play with abandon that is unmatched and remarkably undiluted and this album is just one more example of that raw power and sound.
They are often called one of the loudest rock outfits in existence, both on record and on (or famously, off) the stage. Brian Gibson creates sounds that are unexpected and remarkably varied with his virtuosic bass playing and his inventive approach to the instrument, centered around melody rather than rhythm. The dizzying fury of Brian Chippendale's drums twist from primal patterns into disorienting break beats as his distorted, and echoing vocals weave more melody into the mayhem.
"Certain loud guitar rock records serve as brain erasers, a form of shock therapy zapping through aural inputs and (to mix metaphors) cleaning the proverbial clock. Lightning Bolt is one such thing." -LA Times

LP | 2000 | US | Reissue (Thrill Jockey)
21,99 €*
Release:2000 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Musically, Standards is their most concise statement of purpose thus far. The tunes are direct and immediate, yet they maintain the exploratory edge that has always characterized the group's output. The fusion of instrumental sounds (electric, acoustic, and synthesized) is subtle and subversive. Similarly, the group's fluency within the studio environment gives the finished work a quality that alternates between artifice and reality. Whilst TNT was constructed in the studio using segments recorded, improvised or altered electronically, the "Standards" sessions began after a period of rehearsal and composition. The contrast, simply stated, is that the studio was used extensively as a compositional tool for TNT, whereas with Standards it was used predominantly as tool to realize and enhance the existing new compositions. The studio does not impose itself on the recording to the same degree we witnessed on TNT, and the resulting record is in many ways reminiscent of their unadorned self-titled debut. Sounds, notes and rhythms are manipulated (such as the drums on "Seneca") but in general, processing is spare (with the exception of first half of "Benway," which is entirely synthesized). From the dramatic opening of "Seneca" to the soaring melodies of "Blackjack"; from the swing of "Benway" to the motion of "Six Pack", Standards is anything but standard. Tortoise's highly lyrical melodies, rich and varied tonal palette and high level of musicianship were recorded in a studio designed by McEntire. The resulting record is the clearest demonstration of the band's many skills and strengths.

Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie

Helen Money, composer Alison Chesley, remains one of the most unique and versatile cellists today, her cello playing effortlessly moving from black metal to expansive ambient strings. She uses the cello to access and channel extremes of human emotion, employing extensive sonic manipulation, plucking and bowing techniques to summon an astonishing breadth and depth of sound. On her new album Atomic, Chesley pushes even further out towards the extremes of her output with daring minimalist arrangements that stand as her most intimate, direct, and emotionally bare work to date. The breadth of ideas explored throughout give Atomic a distinctive ebb and flow; an oblique narrative that conjures distinctive and palpable emotions without being prescriptive.
Atomic's title was inspired by Chesley's study of the early Roman Humanists, including Lucretius, who proposed the idea that everything is made up of tiny particles and thus interconnected. Written during a period of transition for Chesley and her family she drew immense strength from this idea of interconnectivity. The experience of recalibrating & reorienting herself in the world came to subconsciously inform Atomic's searching tone, Chesley pushing her music to surprising new places just as she and her family moved into new phases of their lives. Her embracing of minimalist structures reflects her own empathetic shift, collapsing barriers between artist and listener to find power and strength in intimacy. She mused on the implications of interconnectivity for how we should treat each other and our environment. She elaborates: "I've been thinking a lot about how the earth is our home; the universe; and how fragile this world is and how connected we all are to everything." In an increasingly fragmented world, Atomic presents a map for how we might navigate personal and collective trauma through the pursuit of openness, understanding and introspection.

Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Umberto is an artist whose work is distinctly cinematic. Composer Matt Hill’s performances and delicate compositions taken together have the cumulative ability to surprise. Hill, whose Umberto moniker is an homage to director Umberto Lenzi, is an experienced and active film composer, most recently scoring the film All That We Destroy. In addition to film and commercial work, Umberto has released a number of lauded solo recordings. On Umberto’s Thrill Jockey debut Helpless Spectator, his haunting music is otherworldly and affecting alike, leaving the listener with an unsettling and profound air of mystery.Umberto’s early recordings harken back to classic synth-driven sci-fi and horror soundtracks. Helpless Spectator uses synthesizers in an entirely different manner. Cold, looming monolith tones are now warm, softer pads that envelope the listener while guitar, cello, banjo and pedal steel add movement and light. Still, Hill unsettles with his arrangements and melodic phrasing. Unexpected shifts and turns in even the most tender movements of Helpless Spectatorare inflected with a contemplative melancholy and fragility.Umberto makes masterful use of varied textures throughout the album, blending supernatural effects and grounded instruments to create distinct atmospheres. Helpless Spectator is inquisitive and moving in equal measure, an album of somber elegance and delicate arrangements whose cumulative effect of unease is entirely unexpected.

Performing as a duo, Fox and Millions (John Colpitts) appreciation and understanding of each other’s playing is immediately obvious. Individual egos are completely dissolved in service of the music, the pair moving intuitively, creating a complex architectures of rhythm. Biting Through pushes the sonic and compositional potential of the drum kit to the limits, expanding the duo’s arsenal with modular electronics to create some of the most future-seeking sounds out today. Engineer Ernie Indradat together with the duo shaped and sculpted the mass of raw improvised material into the final tracks. Using his own modular setup, Indradat edited passages to the most potent as well as selectively altering some synthesizer sounds. The resulting tracks capture the sheer exhilaration of live performance shaped by duo’s inventive arrangements in the studio.LP version pressed on virgin vinyl with free download coupon.

High Anxiety Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Chicago’s Oozing Wound are a mass of contradictions: weed lovers whose music hits you with its breakneck head banging force. The band deal with nihilism, yet remain addictively fun. Their music is equal parts sludge and thrash, noise and riff-loaded rock. High Anxiety is an unabashed mocking of the madness of modern living, its chemical induced adventures and establishment absurdity, deriding the industrial complex behind established institutions such as NASA while savaging those who deny science. Oozing Wound on High Anxiety are nihilistic pied pipers making us laugh our way to the apocalypse. The album finds guitarist and vocalist Zack Weil drummer Kyle Reynolds and bassist Kevin Cribbin blending their ferocious energy, sonic experiments and blunt lyricism for a pummeling enjoyable head-banger with an irresistible sneer. On High Anxiety , Oozing Wound’s songs have become more complex, their attacks more ferocious, and bass and guitar lines more captivating. The album was recorded in four days at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studio. The trio ripped through live-tracking and overdubs, leaving space to experiment with new sounds and effects. The band, having an affinity for the complexities of prog music, managed to bring prog elements to High Anxiety without sacrificing any of their songs punch. Subtle layers of saxophone, flutes and synths were blended into guitar tones, adding depth and texture without cluttering arrangements. Fist-pumping blasts of white- hot riffing become a Trojan horse for sonic weirdness. The resulting recordings are at once some of their most sonically rich, immediate, and impactful. High Anxiety drips with a caustic vitriol that is both riotous and intoxicating, a feat that could only be accomplished by Oozing Wound .

On November 9th, 2018, Koen Holkamp (of Mountains) will
release his Thrill Jockey debut as BEAST, entitled Ens. Crafted
leading up to and after the birth of Koen’s frst child, Ens is a
profoundly intimate and heartfelt journey into the composer’s
psyche. BEAST reins in his sprawling sound with new resolve,
crafting tightly constructed pieces of engaging and ecstatic beauty.
BEAST’s initial releases simply titled Vol 1 & Vol 2 were
performance-centric limited editions and were directly linked
to a series of visual environments Holtkamp created with 3D
laser projections. As a purely studio project, Ens takes on a more
precise and contemplative approach, utilizing fnely tuned virtual
instruments to create a wealth of beautiful, idyllic textures. The
simple beauty of Holtkamp’s music explains the recent surge
in interest of both his solo material and Mountains’ albums, via
popular ambient and electronic playlists.
As BEAST, Holtkamp has nimbly altered his process of creating
dense, immersive music. Ens stands as not only the culmination
of his newfound methods, but also a deeply personal moment. In
crafting the graceful and passionate sonic tapestries into compact
compositions, BEAST’s Ens masterfully melds the earthbound and
the ethereal.

crafting tightly constructed pieces of engaging and ecstatic beauty.
BEAST’s initial releases simply titled Vol 1 & Vol 2 were
performance-centric limited editions and were directly linked
to a series of visual environments Holtkamp created with 3D
laser projections. As a purely studio project, Ens takes on a more
precise and contemplative approach, utilizing fnely tuned virtual
instruments to create a wealth of beautiful, idyllic textures. The
simple beauty of Holtkamp’s music explains the recent surge
in interest of both his solo material and Mountains’ albums, via
popular ambient and electronic playlists.
As BEAST, Holtkamp has nimbly altered his process of creating
dense, immersive music. Ens stands as not only the culmination
of his newfound methods, but also a deeply personal moment. In
crafting the graceful and passionate sonic tapestries into compact
compositions, BEAST’s Ens masterfully melds the earthbound and
the ethereal.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Wrekmeister Harmonies’ new album, The Alone Rush, their frst as the core duo of JR Robinson and Esther Shaw, is a hauntingly intense and dark meditation on death and isolation, whose concise compositions carry an emotional heft without the orchestrated bombast of their previous four albums.
The Alone Rush retains Wrekmeister Harmonies’ expansive and ambitious aesthetic, blending waves of ethereal keyboards, haunting string melodies, and crescendos of dissonance, but now turns central focus towards Robinson’s deep, rich, and soothing vocals. The two guests involved in The Alone Rush are longtime friend and
Swans drummer Thor Harris, performing minimal drums and clarinet, as well as acclaimed New York producer/engineer Martin Bisi. Over the course of their fve albums on Thrill Jockey Wrekmeister Harmonies have veered from drone to modern classical, outrock and extreme metal, curating and orchestrating the talents of such varied
underground luminaries as Godspeed! You Black Emperor, David Yow of The Jesus Lizard, Chip King and Lee Buford of The Body, Marissa Nadler, Jef Whitehead of Leviathan, Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten, Sanford Parker of Minsk, the freeimprov cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, Chris Brokaw of Come, and jazz composer Ken Vandermark.

Cloud Corner
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
On her Thrill Jockey debut, acclaimed guitarist Marisa Anderson’s
music is boundless. Anderson is undeniably a master of
the North American traditions of country, folk, and blues on
guitar. On Cloud Corner, Anderson expands on those styles as well
as instrumentation. Written and recorded in a period of political
and personal upheaval, the album is intended as a refuge, an ode
to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. The results are an album of
remarkably intimate beauty.
The solo guitar work of Marisa Anderson owes its familiar tones to
her awareness of history and her mastering of her instrument, yet it
is completely new. Marisa Anderson flters musical history through
her own personal experiences, as a traveler in life and in music.
A curious and gifted player, Anderson has spent over 35 years of
performing forging her singular, instantly recognizable voice. Marisa
Anderson’s Cloud Corner is hopeful in the face of any discord, a
resplendent diverse sound sanctuary that shines, a mirror of the
horizon it looks towards.
E - Negative Work

Negative Work

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
E, the savagely raw trio of Thalia Zedek (Come, Uzi, Live
Skull), Jason Sanford (Neptune), and Gavin McCarthy (Karate)
make angular, energized, and idiosyncratic rock music. These
accomplished and inventive musicians could not be more
different in the way they express themselves but their egoless
dedication to ensemble playing and writing shapes E’s distinct
sound. Following their self-titled debut which Mojo called
“both thrillingly volatile and touchingly melodic”, their second
album Negative Work is the product of three individuals whose
dedication to the collaborative process may very well be the
source of compelling tension underlying their songs.
Recorded and mixed in 4 days at Machines With Magnets
(Battles, Lightning Bolt, The Body), the album captures the
energy of E’s gripping live shows. E has been touring and
writing together steadily since their debut, at an age when many
musicians are loath to abandon what they are known for and
jump back into the grind of establishing a new band. E’s egoless
dedication, love of playing, and relentless inventiveness are
irresistible qualities making Negative Work an entirely singular
and highly compelling rock record.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The Sea And Cake deliver a refreshingly intimate collection of elegantly
arranged, singular pop songs. For over two decades and 11 albums, The
Sea And Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate,
intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies.
Masters of subtlety, their compositions have continually evolved - through
minute alterations in texture, unusual approaches to lyrics, and creative
production choices. Any Day is testament to The Sea And Cake’s artistry,
song craft, and utterly unique sound. The results are intimate songs that
speak to the searcher in all of us. Through shifting instrumentation and
sonic exploration, the band invites you into a world that is both familiar
and unexpected.
Written and recorded following the departure of bassist Eric Claridge, Any
Day is The Sea And Cake’s frst album recorded as the trio of Sam Prekop,
Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire. Since the release of their last album
(2012’s Runner), the band have, in addition to shows, been creatively very
busy: Prekop focusing on solo modular synthesizer and soundtrack work,
including an acclaimed collaboration with artist David Hart, McEntire’s
recording and touring with Tortoise, and maintaining a busy schedule as
a recording engineer and producer, and Prewitt’s work as a cartoonist and
illustrator, in addition to duo performances with Prekop. The band, still
actively performing with bassist Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback),
were inspired by the challenge of composing as a smaller unit.
Any Day captures The Sea And Cake’s distinctive aural alchemy, melding
longing melancholy with hopeful excitement. In other hands the
combination seems impossible, but for The Sea And Cake, it’s effortless.

After thirteen years as one of the centerpieces of Sweden’s experimental
rock scene The Skull Defekts return with their fnal, self-titled album.
The Skull Defekts are known for merging the coarse vitality of punk with
the ritualism of folk dances to create music that is addictive, wondrously
discordant, and rooted in a belief in the overwhelming power of pure
sound.
Their fnal self-titled album is the band’s most composed effort to date
and features new member Mariam Wallentin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums)
joining core members Joachim Nordwall (founder of groundbreaking
iDEAL Recordings), Daniel Fagge Fagerström (8 Days of Nothing), and
Henrik Rylander (Union Carbide Productions).
The members of The Skull Defekts are singular forces in the European
experimental scene. Nordwall has frequently collaborated with
acclaimed saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, including in his Fire! Orchestra,
alongside Wallentin, who herself has collaborated with Swedish singer
Lykke Li. In addition to The Skull Defekts, Nordwall and Rylander have
worked together on numerous projects, including Orchestra Of Constant
Distress, and Saturn And The Sun. The Defekts have worked with a wide
variety of labels, a testament to their creative energy and the diversity
of their output, including Important, Meudiademorte, Diagonal, Aa,
iDeal, Touch, and Kning Disk. Frequent collaborator and singular artist
in his own right Daniel Higgs again created the album artwork.

White Hills
Walks For Motorists
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Thrill Jockey)
20,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
White Hills are proponents of psychedelia as transformation. The music made by Dave W. and Ego Sensation is risky and cutting edge, rooted in dystopian futurism and hyper-conscious of society’s constant desire for a new and better drug. That progressive aesthetic is at the heart of White Hills’ newest album Walks For Motorists, a radically stripped-down record that emphasizes rhythm and groove. The album bursts forth with a new kind of intensity, one born out of laser-focused precision and detail-oriented songwriting. Possibly surprising to fans familiar with the Hawkwindian guitar squall of earlier albums, the songs on Walks For Motorists began as a keyboard melody or bass line, and several songs on the album don’t even feature guitar at all. This is propulsive, open music, surreal to its core but made to inspire people to get out of their seats and move.

Walks For Motorists was recorded with David Wrench (Caribou, Bear in Heaven, FKA Twigs, Owen Pallet) at Bryn Derwen Recording Studio in Bethesda, Wales which borders the Snowdonia National Forest. The band had 24-hour access to the studio, which allowed them to work whenever inspiration struck. Wrench’s expertise producing and mixing electronic music was an essential asset when perfecting the crisp tones heard throughout the record. This is the first album the band has recorded outside of New York City, and the vast, rolling Welsh landscape that surrounded the studio influenced the album’s uncluttered sound. Walks For Motorists is also White Hills’ most diverse album to date. Fuzzed-out rockers sit comfortably next to kraut-infused grooves, and there are more vocal contributions from Ego than ever before.
