Multiple
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Topshelf)
20,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Multiple is the sixth full length record by the prolific maximalists known as LITE. Over the past 16 years, the Japanese quartet has established itself as one of the most influential groups across a host of subgenres. Though usually referred to by touchstones such as 'math-rock' or 'post-rock,' LITE has developed an uncanny ability to fuse their influences into their own unmistakable dialect that defies generic genre classification.At times, Multiple's compositions find themselves at unlikely stylistic intersections. Conversating funk riffs will interweave with challenging rhythmic phrasing, blurring the lines between lead sections, obscuring where passages begin and end. LITE's distinct voice is emphasized in tracks such as 'Double' and '4mg Warmth,'where melodies meander incessantly, constantly taking the listener to new territory.While many LITE songs unfold at breakneck pace, others entertain entirely different worlds altogether. In songs 'Ring' and 'Blizzard,' the band tests the limits of their abilities with slowed-down, genre-bending forays into hip-hop and dub. On 'Ring,' LITE collaborated with rapper Maco Marets and singer Utena Kobayashi, where the latter's talents were also tapped for the song's ethereal steelpan section. As LITE has shown over nearly two decades, there exists no style that they cannot master or otherwise weave into their designs.

Upheaval and change are themes spread throughout the songs on Printer's Devil, the latest Ratboys LP, out February 28, 2020 via Topshelf Records. A tangible sonic shift is apparent thanks to a newly-expanded lineup - founding members Julia Steiner and Dave Sagan are now joined by Marcus Nuccio and Sean Neumann on drums and bass. What started as an acoustic duo has finally transformed into a full-scale indie-rock band with a clear identity. Recorded live at Decade Music Studios in Chicago, Printer's Devil features big-chorus power pop songs like 'Alien with a Sleep Mask On' and 'Anj' that sound massive and larger than life, alongside intimate folk songs like 'A Vision' and devastating alt-country tracks like 'Listening,' showcasing once again the group's signature versatility. Building off their previous albums'AOID (2015) and GN (2017)'Ratboys captures the bombastic, electrified fun of their live show in a bottle on Printer's Devil and showcases their growing chemistry as a tight-knit group.

Goose Bumps
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Topshelf)
18,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
On Goose Bumps, Connecticut's Boyscott present ten upbeat tracks that forge together elements of surf rock and bedroom pop. Weaving these supple sounds of yore into the techniques of today, Boyscott's distinct bedroom-recorded bops betray the limitations of their modest studio situation with a sonic depth not commonly associated with lo-fi projects.

Originally released in 2015, Goose Bumps is getting its first vinyl reissue with a co-release by Topshelf Records and Babe City Records. Although it took a few years of rotating casts, various makeshift studio experiences, and over a hundred shows, Boyscott have clearly carved out their own place in the world, garnering millions of streams and selling out many DIY physical pressings in the process.
No Vacation - Phasing

Phasing
Tape | 2019 | US | Original (Topshelf)
8,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Phasing is the latest collection of songs from the wavy-gravy dream-pop group No Vacation, comprised of five tracks that laconically capture the band's evolution and compositional acumen. While some cuts took only a couple months to complete, others had years-long gestation periods, showing the band's awareness that patience can be a powerful artistic tool. The collaborative writing process on Phasing further demonstrates No Vacation's growth, wherein each member made contributions outside of their primary instrument. Emboldened by this experimentation, each title on Phasing features a distinct structural turn, either breaking up a song entirely in half, or deftly transitioning to an unexpected mood or phrase. The result is an instrumentally dynamic, multigenre foray that calls on the sounds of shoegaze and 90s alternative rock, even boasting string arrangements which hearken back to the Romantic Era.

Madeline Crisman's visual artwork playfully relays adult themes through childlike imagery. But
with her band Crisman, she swaps the acrylics and spray paint for hazily-filtered vocals gently
layered over slowcore instrumentals to find yet another medium for masking emotional turmoil with innocence. The contrasting maturity and juvenility of Crisman's paintings are refracted throughout the measured ten-song collection. To lend its start-stop riffs an emotional touchstone, the melancholic and sinuous lead single "Surprise" pulls from childhood memories of wanting to be included and feeling misunderstood. On 'Cya,' the band employs acerbic distortion and twinkling arpeggios to explore the immaturity and inevitability of trying to forget a person or feeling that lingers far too long, where final single "Icee Blue" is about experiencing the infectiousness of a romance, a thematic reproduction of the song's infectious composition.

Led by the eponymous Adam Watkins, addy's debut album Eclipse navigates the universal themes of friendship, heartbreak, and growth on the terrain of eloquent, country-reminiscent instrumentation. Natural ASMR-inducing textures and Casio-sequenced drum hooks create a unique rhythmic foundation for addy's distinct lilt, itself occasionally adorned with honeysuckle-sweet pitch correction which lends the folkish twang an unusual yet modern slant. Lead single 'Planted' captures many of Eclipse's salient elements with its wailing violin and pedal steel, evoking the strong emotions associated with healing and growth. On 'Easier,' addy longs to alleviate the pains of a near-and-dear friend, whereas the album's triumphant apex 'Eclipse' turns the reflection inward in an entrancing, climactic ode to the self, punctuated with notes of optimism and hope.
