Klaus Johann Grobe - Du Bist So Symmetrisch Pink Vinyl Edition
Klaus Johann Grobe
Du Bist So Symmetrisch Pink Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Trouble In Mind)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Pop
Die Schweizer Popgruppe Klaus Johann Grobe ist seit 2012 dabei und auch auf ihrem dritten Album "Du Bist So Symmetrisch" widersetzt sich das Duo weiterhin der konventionellen Beschreibung von Musik und verwischt die Grenzen zwischen elektronischem Pop, Psychedelic und Dance Music. "Du Bist So Symmetrisch" folgt demunvermeidlichen Weg des Vorgängeralbums "Spagat der Liebe" (Träger des Basler Pop-Preis 2016), indem sie verführerische JazzFusion Club Grooves mit mutiertem Electro-Funk verbinden. Angetrieben von einem organischen, metronomischen Beat, der punktgenau auf den Synthsound abgestimmt ist, dazu melodischer,echolastiger Gesang und ein monströser funky Bass - die Musik zielt auf eine bestimmte Art von Hypnose ab. Das Album beginnt mit dem kaskadierenden Arpeggio eines sich in den Blickwinkel rückenden Synthesizers, bevor es in den ruhigen Dancefloor-Groove der ersten Single "Discogedanken" eintaucht. Während sich die Band im Clubimmer mehr zu Hause fühlt, zielt Klaus Johann Grobe sicherlich auf die eher tänzerisch orientierte Arena der deutschen Musik (siehe auch "Der König" oder "Von Gestern") und richtet den Metro-Puls von Klaus Dinger und das spätere Techno-Werk von Kraftwerk an biologischen Faktoren aus - wie z.B. Moos, das auf dem Großrechnerwächst. Seit 2014 ist die Band ausgiebig unterwegs, u.a. mit Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Growlers und Temples, und hat Tourneen und Festivals in den USA, Großbritannien, den Niederlanden, Luxemburg, Deutschland, der Schweiz, Frankreich und Spaniengespielt.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Calling Chicago band Ethers a "supergroup" might be hyperbole to many outside the Chicago music scene, but for those who have been keeping score in the past few years, a pedigree of bands like Heavy Times, Outer Minds, Radar Eyes and The Runnies seems like a dream team.After the dissolution of his band Heavy Times, guitarist & songwriter Bo Hansen joined forces with husband & wife musical/life partners Russell Calderwood & Mary McKane & drummer Matt Rolin to concoct what would become Ethers' eponymous debut album.A self-described "bad time band", Ethers' debut consists of twelve songs of ragged, soulful rock and roll; heavy on hooks, with stark arrangements and sticky melodies that hang with an unexpected resonance.Instant earworms like opener "Empty Hours", "Rip O " and "Modern Dating" recall bands like soulful punks Royal Headache or Asheville troubadours Reigning Sound, while third quarter-album high point "CBD" rages with nervous energy like a long-lost Feelies "Crazy Rhythms" outtake.Tunes like "Carry What You Kill" and album closer "Something" are soaked in melancholy, but peppered with cynicism and charm.The band oozes a world-weariness, but the tunes yearn with a hopeful ache for better days ahead.Recorded in the raw, with very little audio adornment by Chicago engineer Dave Vettraino & mastered by Melbourne legend Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring), the spartan production allows the songs to be the main focus.

Since 2013, Columbus, Ohio's Connections have made four nearperfect albums of lofipop majesty for the seminal Midwest label Anyway Records, and "Foreign Affairs" -their latest album (and first for Trouble In Mind), continues that winning streak withfifteen songs packed with sardonic tunefulness and Buckeye bombast, firmly plantingthem in the canon of the Ohio Sound. Connections sprung forth from the ashes ofNineties pop band 84 Nash, infamous for being the only non-GBV related bandreleased on Robert Pollard's own Rockathon Records and comparisons to the IndieRock underdogs seem inevitable, if not a little shortsighted. Connections' brand ofindie rock definitely has one foot in The Nineties but maintains a classicist's penchantfor nuanced & timeless rock'n'roll. Many songs use classic pop structures (see "LoveMe Still"s quiet/loud/quiet power ballad-isms) but subvert them with a clever melodictwist, a bonkers twinguitar solo or unexpected synth squiggle underneath. These guyshave done their homework, but nothing feels studied - they've drunk from the watersof the Ohio Underground and the tunes flow forth naturally, with nods to theirNineties brethren (GBV, Breeders, Gaunt) as well as idiosyncratic Midwest legendslike Mike Rep and The Quotas or Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments. For everyobvious, life-affirming hit on 'Foreign Affairs' (the bouncy "Good Cop" or bombastic"Low Low Low") there are equal numbers of stealthy earworms like the chiming"Short Line" (with it's humming anti-chorus), or the yearning, organ-drenched"Downtown" to name a few. The sixteen songs ooze familiarity and an instant lyricalrelatability, with singer Kevin Elliot's lyrics reveling in the everyday's little details;good friends, love and rock 'n' roll with restlessness and desire in a harsh, unforgivingbut still beautiful world.

Olden Yolk Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Trouble In Mind)
17,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Olden Yolk is a New York-based group whose penchant for dystopian folk, abstract poeticism, and motorik rhythms have enveloped them in a sound uniquely of-the-moment yet simultaneously time-tested. The project is currently led by songwriters, vocalists, and multi- instrumentalists Shane Butler and Caity Shaffer, whose interlaced vocals are found guiding each composition on their enlivening self-titled debut. The project was initially conceived in 2012 by Butler as an outlet for one-off songs and visual art while touring and releasing albums with the band Quilt (Mexican Summer). Following the release of a split-record with Weyes Blood in 2014, Olden Yolk became a collaborative entity. Olden Yolk’s debut ruminates on questions surrounding love, self-doubt, and locating autonomy amidst burgeoning unrest. Wrought with hazy melancholy and halcyon joy, Butler and Shaffer’s lilting vocals play off one another through a devotional dialogue, taking form in haunting choral melodies and candid rock n' roll. These songs are ecstatic odes to the life of the city; to the subway platforms, kiosks, and monuments which enliven and encompass our collectivity, elevating into an urban-psychedelia. On the album, Butler and Shaffer are joined by drummer Dan Drohan (Tei Shi, Uni Ika Ai) and guitarist Jesse DeFrancesco who round out the studio sessions and live-band. Drohan’s deep passion for jazz, hip-hop, and experimental percussion come to fore while Defrancesco’s minimal yet powerful guitar ambiences are heard swelling in the peripheries of each song. The album was recorded at Gary’s Electric in NYC by Jarvis Taveniere (Woods) with co-production, electronics, and mixing by Jon Nellen (Ginla, Terrible Records). Other guests, such as multi-instrumentalist John Andrews (Woods, Quilt, The Yawns) and violinist Jake Falby (Mutual Benefit, Julie Byrne), add to the mercurial nature of the record, creating a landscape tinged with beatific songwriting and transgressive underpinnings.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
New Zealand's Salad Boys are back with "This Is Glue", the follow up to theircritically acclaimed 2015 debut album "Metalmania". Recorded once again bybandleader/guitarist Joe Sampson at his home studio, "This Is Glue's" twelve songsdig deeper, with sharper hooks embedded deep within a more mature musicality."This Is Glue" hones Sampson's songwriting chops to a razor edge, with many ofthe album's songs sounding utterly timeless. The riffs and melodies seem all toofamiliar, perhaps recalling greats that came before them (The Chills, R.E.M., TheBats), but Sampson has a voice all his own. The themes are darker, the lyrics moreclaustrophobic and yearning; confronting anxiety, mortality, and fear through anabstract lyrical lens. Album opener "Blown Up" kickstarts with motorik drummingthat crescendos into a thrilling guitar riff that could crack mountains. "PsychSlasher" crashes forward frenetically awash in phaser before easing into a melodicdenouem ent buoyed by a bubbling synthesizer before a tidal wave of guitarcrashes down again.

You Can GetThere From Here represents a turning point for the band, angling their scrappy, postpunkfury into a more refined & melodic pop sensibility, drawing inspiration from UKDIY pop & punk like Dolly Mixture, Cleaners From Venus & Television Personalities.Songs like "Fallen Stars" & "The Garden" temper their sonic crunch ever so slightly,relying more on the harmonic wallop of a solid hook than the sheer volume of guitars.This is urgent, chiming guitar pop that clangs with a sonorous melancholy & a ramshacklegrace. Rays can still lay it down with the rest of 'em; tunes like "Subway" & "Work ofArt" shuffle & stumble forward, skirting chaos in a flurry of strums, recalling antipodeangroups like UV Race or Dick Diver who cull inspiration from idiosyncratic UK greats likeMark E. Smith or Robyn Hitchcock. The new album finds the core group of StanleyMartinez, Eva Hannan, Troy Hewitt & Alexa Pantalone augmented by new member &keyboardist Britta Leijonflycht, whose synth flourishes add melodic embellishments, sonicheft or psychedelic swirl where needed.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Facs entstand Anfang 2017 aus der Asche der beliebten Chicagoer BandDisappears. "Negative Houses" ist ihr Debütalbum, eine Abstraktion ihrerfrüheren Inkarnation, noch minimalistischer und nackter als zuvor. "NegativeHouses" nähert sich dem harten, gothy Post-Punk, der zuvor rhythmischer undabstrakter perfektioniert wurde als in Disappears, wobei Legers maschinenhaftesTrommeln im Vordergrund steht (siehe "Skylarking" und "Others") und van HeriksGitarre im Wechsel zwischen Ausbrüchen dissonantem Ambients und perkussivemAkzent wechselt. Case wechselt in Facs von Gitarre zu Bass und fügt dem Driveder Band bei Songs wie "Just A Mirror" und dem Herzstück des Albums, der fastneunminütigen, Saxophon-getränkten Tour-de-Force "Houses Breathing", derenelektrischer Herzschlag nach vorne läutet und wie ein Outtake aus den ColdStorage Studios um 1979 klingt, ein sparsames Pochen hinzu.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Sunwatchers kehren mit dem heißen Nachfolger ihres selbstbetitelten Debüts von 2016 zurück,der passenderweise auf den Namen “II” hört. Das Quartett entzieht sich weiterhin jeder adäquatenmusikalischen Einordnung und spielt mit Elementen aus Free Jazz, Psych, Punk, äthiopischer und ThaiMusik und Funk, um zu einem schwindeligen, belebenden Sound zu gelangen. „II“ startet mit demKlicken von Drumsticks und stürzt sich kopfüber in den Opener „Nosebeers“, einem Kracher mitSaxophon, der so klingt, als würde Group Doueh mit John Zorn jammen. Ohne Pause schließtsich „The Hot Eye“ an, bevor „There Are Weapons That You Can Bring To School“ mit seinem eherkontemplativen Ton die Atmosphäre des Albums etabliert und die Message des Covers unterstreicht:„Sunwatchers stand in solidarity with the dispossessed, impoverished and embattled people of theworld“. Die Band sieht das sowohl als Mission Statement und als Kampfansage: „Wir sind Musiker undwir überlassen die politischen Implikationen denen, die darin qualifizierter sind als wir. Sämtliche Zeit,Energie und Leidenschaft, die wir aufbringen können, legen wir in die Entstehung von Musik. Voninstrumentaler Musik, die sich über die Tyrannei der Semantik in die Freiheit und die Hoffnung derUniversalität übersetzen lässt. Ohne direkte Sprache ist es unsere Herausforderung, unsere Prinzipienauf andere Art und Weise auszudrücken.“

The debut solo album from Jack Cooper of Ultimate Painting. A beautifullymelancholic song cycle about life in England's "Las Vegas of the North",Blackpool andthe desolate Fylde Coast.

Evoking the delicate but oftenwidescreen musicality of Bill Fay and the abstract lyricism of the late 60s Scott Walkerrecords, as well as the more experimental sounds of John Cale and Robert Wyatt,Sandgrown is a collection of tranquil ballads that evoke feelings of nostalgia and reevaluationabout where you come from, wherever that may be.

Massachusetts songwriter Doug Tuttle returns with his third solo album, “Peace Potato”, once again on Chicago label Trouble In Mind Records.His 2013 solo debut (after fronting his longtime psychedelic band, MMOSS) was an insular and foggy psychedelic masterpiece punctuated by Tuttle’s stinging guitar leads, accented by flashes of bedroom Fairport /Crazy Horse brilliance, towing the line nimbly between elegance and ragged assurance. We last saw Tuttle on “It Calls On Me”, his 2015 sophomore album, which pushed his songwriting toward further clarity and melody; “Peace Potato” shakes it all down with Tuttle’s strongest batch of songs yet.

Dick Diver managed to avoid the sophomore slump with their 2013 album "Calendar Days" (Chapter Music) & look to perfect a three-peat with their 3rd album "Melbourne, Florida", which hums with a strident assurance, buoyed by the benefit of the band's 4 talented songwriters whose singular voices sit comfortably beside each other in the albums 12 tracks. If Dick Diver weren't already leading the pack of new-school Australian pop (as their ranks include members of Total Control, Uv Race, Lower Plenty, & Boomgates) then "Melbourne, Florida" is sure to put them in the poleposition.

"Africa Avenue" feels more organic, sounding like the work of a cracking live band in action rather than a heady, studio construction. A breath of fresh air & without a doubt, the band's most accomplished effort to date.

Austin, TX resident Alex Cuervo (Blacktop, Hex Dispensers) turned a few heads last year with his new project Espectrostatic; his synth-based electronic project in favor of spooky electronic pulses & synth drones a'la John Carpenter & Tangeringe Dream. The new album ups the ante with more sophisticated & subtle arrangements, letting the songs unfold organically, still inferring the presence of a soundtrack to an as-yet-unmade horror flick.

When Negative Scanner membersRebecca Flores & Tom Cassling's other band, Tyler Jon Tyler disbanded in 2012, the 2 members recruited bassist Nick & guitarist Matt to flesh out the lineup &Negative Scanner was born. "Ambitious People" launches off the A-Side, wasting no time rocketing to the anthemic chorus reminiscent of savage early Mekonscarousing with The Feelies. The B-side lets the dueling guitars ebb & flow rather than bludgeon, bringing to mind the effortless, slash & burn tension exuded byNorthwest punk originators The Wipers by way of modern-day DIY heroes like Tyvek or Eddy Current Supression Ring.Limited to 300 copies.
