COFFINS ON IO

Band:KAYO DOT
Album:COFFINS ON IO
Label:FLENSER
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

When it comes to Kayo Dot, change is the only constant. And like the best pop culture chameleons of the past, Kayo Dot’s evolution is governed by an inscrutable inner-logic. Despite the accessible songwriting of Coffins on Io and the emphasis on vocal melody and electronic percussion, Kayo Dot fans will find the record’s darkness and intensity familiar and relatable. For example: the dark wave of Coffins on Io album-track “Off-ramp Cycle” might be unrecognizable to Kayo Dot’s metal fans. “The sound is kind of like a sexy combination of Type O Negative, Peter Gabriel, Sisters of Mercy,” Driver says. But the track also encompasses the brooding menace of classic Bauhaus as well as current dark wavers Cold Cave and Crystal Stilts: artists young and old who live and die in those unknowable corners where heaviness meets delicacy and sincerity meets theatricality.

Elsewhere, Driver’s penchant for prog rock surfaces in the ethereal “Spirit Photography,” complete with a saxophone melody line—strikingly gentle when compared to Kayo Dot’s brutal back catalog. “Long Time Disturbance on the Miracle Mile” could be a Bryan Ferry-era Roxy Music cut, and “The Mortality of Doves” could be Eno-produced David Bowie.

Driver says there’s also an element of sexuality in Coffins on Io.“Basically the vibe that we’re going for here is inspired by 80s retro-future noir— Blade Runner,” Driver explains. “I wanted to make a good record to put on while you drive across the desert at night under a toxic, post-apocalyptic atmosphere,” he says, adding, “There’s a weird underlying theme of murder, shame and death.”

 

 

HYPNOS

Band:HYPNOS
Album:HYPNOS
Label:Crusher
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Hypnos plays heavy action boogie rock and is at this moment one of the fastest growing bands on the Swedish heavy rock scene. Never before in the history of Crusher Records has a band been signed to the label this quickly!

Hypnos was formed in late autumn 2013 and it only took a handful of shows of intense energy backed by a solid repertoire to get Crusher Records immediate attention. Shortly a deal was struck! Hypnos wasted no time and in February 2014 the band entered Kungsten Studios to start recording their debut album.

This self-titled debut album contains eight tracks of high octane heavy rock: the initiating and nearly eight minute long Hands of Evil offers a big dose of thunderous drums, heavy riffs and singer Philip proving his skills with the flute as well as his killer voice; The Mountain, which also precedes the album as a single release, with a lovely riff of twin guitar harmonies; the semi-ballad Nightmares bringing some dynamic and balance to the album; and five additional hard rocking memorable tunes. For fans of Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple.

On Crusher Records (a specialist in digging up unknown retro acts of heavy rock and psychedelia. Some of the bands that have released their debut record on Crusher Records are: BLUES PILLS, HORISONT, TROUBLED HORSE, SPIDERS, VIDUNDER and DEAN ALLEN FOYD.)

PERSONALLY YOURS ; THE COMPLETE ANTHOLOGY

Band:THE BOSSMEN
Album:PERSONALLY YOURS ; THE COMPLETE ANTHOLOGY
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Dick Wagner and his guitar. Lou Reed's "Rock 'n' Roll Animal". Alice Cooper's "Welcome to My Nightmare".... Wagner's contribution to rock 'n' roll is immense. And it all started a little bit north of Detroit with the Bossmen. In just three years (1964-67), The Bossmen amassed an impressive run of no less than eight regional number one singles. When you listen to these eighteen original compositions you can sense the long hours and the countless amount of blood, sweat and tears that went into creating them. Whether it's a stinging guitar solo (the sonic blast of an intro on 'Sunshine' comes to mind), a regal four part vocal harmony or a soaring arrangement, each tune bears the distinct early characteristics of the ‘Wagner’ sound that would later bring him success on a global scale and write him into the annals of rock ‘n' roll history.

Liner notes by Dick Wagner and reflections on the Bossmen by Bo White and Ryan Sparks.

Great Lion Productions package - Massive color booklet with rare photos - Limited to 500 copies.

Band:THE JIGSAW SEEN
Album:OLD MAN REVERB
Label:BURNSIDE

The Jigsaw Seen have more than lived up to expectations with their new masterwork, Old Man Reverb. The album is rich with musical ideas executed by the band in an impeccable manner. From intricate orchestral arrangements to primal rock, The Jigsaw Seen seamlessly combine diverse elements that support the album’s themes of nature and music. Soaring Mellotrons embrace husky baritone guitar figures, while glammy guitars and ornamental piano runs support a Vocoder laugh track. The dynamic foursome of Dennis Davison, Jonathan Lea, Tom Currier and Teddy Freese always know just what the song requires. Echoes of Ennio Morricone, Jimmy Webb, The Stooges and Gene Clark careen through the caverns of Old Man Reverb. The songs have multiple layers and meanings and The Jigsaw Seen have many moods. This is the band at its peak of creativity, brace yourself for the reverberations.

...The Jigsaw Seen’s previous releases, Gifted (2012), Winterland (2011) and Bananas Foster (2010) have received great reviews from UNCUT (UK), The Sunday Times (UK), The Independent (UK), The Daily Mirror (UK) etc...

TOP SOUL - LP

Band:FUSION
Album:TOP SOUL - LP
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

Impossible to find jazz/soul/funk monster by Fusión, issued in Chile in 1975 by ALBA (ALD-041)—a fulsome combination of funk, electric jazz, and soul, with Latin roots. Bassist Enrique Luna had lived and studied art in New York, and knew first-hand the last, avant-garde years of John Coltrane, and Miles Davis’ mutation from hard bop trendsetter into an electric jazz pioneer; Matias Pizarro had appeared on the scene in the mid-60s as a young pianist of outstanding technical ability and advanced ideas. Together they formed a band around a core of Peruvian musicians, with soloists including David Estánovich (tenor sax) and Lautaro Rosas (guitar), plus a rhythm trio of Mario Lecaros (electric piano, former Village Trio), and Orlando Avendaño (drums), with guest appearances by trumpeter Daniel Lencina, and young percussionist Santiago Salas (Santa y su gente). Censorship during the Chilean military regime meant heavy restrictions on artists. Thus the Fusión album was pressed in a very limited quantity, and never legally re-issued—until now! 180 gram limited edition of 500 copies. Bi-lingual insert explores Fusión in the context of the rich Chilean music scene

First time vinyl reissue of 1975 funk/jazz collector Holy Grail - Super grooving, funky electric jazz with Latin roots - Bi-lingual insert explores Fusión in the context of the rich Chilean music scene - Limited to 500 copies.

 

 

THERE IS A UNIVERSE

Band:PROBE 10
Album:THERE IS A UNIVERSE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

Rare private press jazz/space rock album, on reissue wish lists for years -

Limited edition of 500 copies WORLDWIDE

Booklet comes with notes from the band - The mini LP sleeve CD edition has five non-LP bonus tracks!

"This masterpiece crawled up my spine like a kundalini snake and proceeded to take the top of my head off. Probe 10 are unquestionably linked to a very specifically American form of proto-prog-into-jazz-rock synthesis of the precise sort Elektra Records used to specialize in, from Tim Buckley's Starsailor to David Stoughton's Transformer. Toss in trumpet fanfare laden acid psych straight out of the C.A. Quintet songbook, the riotously melodic and dense brassy arrangements of McLuhan... and...well...hold on to your hookahs!" —Mutant Sounds

 

 

RING THE CHANGES - LP

Band:THE KEYS
Album:RING THE CHANGES - LP
Label:SEE MONKEY DO MONKEY
Format:LP

Psych-slackers Keys, recently dropping the definite article, have created a love letter to American Music for their latest album. Ring the Changes, is a 12 strong-song journey through their influences from across the pond, think Stooges, Violent Femmes, Velvets, Sly Stone, Jonathan Richman. The album continues the lo-fi explorations of previous releases Fire Inside (2009) and Bitten by Wolves (2011). Recorded in one weekend on 8 track tape by kindred lo-fi spirit Pixy Jones from El Goodo, Ring the Changes shuns sonic trickery for blistering performances with minimal overdubs.

A fantastic live band Keys have boasted a roster of supporters from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne, Radio 2, Shindig!, Mark Lamarr and Bethan Elfyn. In their former guise as Murry The Hump, The Keys recorded 3 sessions for John Peel, signed to Too Pure, were lauded by the NME for their ‘glorious jangle-pop’, counted Joe Strummer, Keith Allen and Damien Hirst among their biggest fans and were the “ best new band in Britain” according to Alex James and Damon Albarn. KEYS also feature on the soundtrack of indie film Svengali feat. Jonny Owen, Vicky McClure, Martin Freeman, Alan McGee and more. The film was released through universal earlier this year and followed by a soundtrack album feat. KEYS alongside The Coral, Jake Bugg, Dexys, The Small Faces, The Who and more.

SWIM TEAM

Band:ARMS AND SLEEPERS
Album:SWIM TEAM
Label:FAKE CHAPTER
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Boston's Arms and Sleepers latest full length album. Previous records included “Organ Hearts”, “Matador”, “Black Paris 86” and “Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive”. Arms and Sleepers is the music duo Max Lewis and Mirza Ramic.

Wednesday 05 November London @ Cargo Thursday / 06 November Manchester @ Eagle Inn

One of the few bands still carrying the trip-hop torch, Arms and Sleepers experiments more with electronics and beats than Morcheeba or Portishead ever did.- NPR (National Public Radio USA)

Max and Mirza write moody keyboard-driven soft pop tunes that sound very restrained and personal, but they also incorporate electronics and atmospheric sounds into the mix which give their tunes additional odd flavors… Lewis and Ramic are getting good at what they do. Quite damn good. - BABYSUE
