MONTGOMERY CHAPEL - LP

Band:THE SEARCH PARTY
Album:MONTGOMERY CHAPEL - LP
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

The only authorized reissue of this psychedelic masterpiece •180 gram vinyl edition comes in an old-style tip-on jacket •A holy grail for collectors of psychedelia •Insert is packed with info and band history by band leader Nick Freund, plus photos from his personal archive

Search Party was the brainchild of (then Reverend) Nicholas Freund. Having left Wisconsin to join a burgeoning West Coast religious scene, Freund made his way to San Francisco in 1968 to lay down this sole effort with some of his students. The result is a spooky trip that’s equal parts acid-soaked mind expansion and God. Laced with haunting vocals and dreamlike passages, sinister farfisa, blasts of fuzz guitar and downer lyrics, Montgomery Chapel is psychedelic music at its most evocative and thanks to its depth and sense of anxiety, most truly spiritual. The ominous nine-minute drifter 'So Many Things Have Got Me Down,' for example, tackles the difficulties of an unfulfilled married life, depression and spiritual apathy, all while riding a stripped down, grooving beat. If you can imagine a lo-fi United States of America/Jefferson Airplane hybrid, you have an idea of how cool this band sounds. Only 600 copies were pressed and issued on the custom Century label; they've become holy grails of collectors. Artists as disparate as Current 93's David Tibet and Sonic Boom have heaped praise on it. We're thrilled to give this lost classic a proper reissue. Audio restoration by Anders Peterson. Insert is packed with info thanks to Nick Freund, who was gracious enough to delve into his memory, scrapbook, and photo albums to help us flesh out the portrait of one of the most potent—and perhaps most unlikely—psychedelic groups to ever record an album.

PROFESSOR MORIARTYS JUKEBOX

Band:PAUL ROLAND
Album:PROFESSOR MORIARTYS JUKEBOX
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

In the winter of 2012 British gotic psychedelic artist PAUL ROLAND formed a new band to perform at a special charity event in London at the invitation of writer/actor/TV presenter Stephen Fry. Roland was then being represented by a manager who planned to organise more UK gigs, (one of the rare times he had professional representation), but the music business being what it is and Sagittarius being misaligned with Mars, or some such, none of this actually transpired. But the band had such a jolly time rehearsing that it seemed a shame not to go in to the studio and record some of the live set for later use as radio sessions, especially since these sounded so different from the released versions. These tracks were subsequently featured on the Clockwork Cabaret podcast in America, Starship Overflow in the UK and Radio 95.8 in Greece. Paul was delighted when Baltimore steampunk band The Clockwork Dolls agreed to add backing vocals and to have the good fortune to feature psych guitarist Mick Crossley of Flyte Reaction who added his inimitable guitar parts and backing vocals. Two tracks also feature violinist Geoffrey Richardson of legendary Canterbury rock band Caravan. Then Paul Roland thought it would be a hoot to release them as part of a possible series of rare and unreleased recordings and he added some more unreleased recordings from his archive.

 

 

SANTA FE

Band:AUGIE MEYERS
Album:SANTA FE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Grammy-winning Texas music legend, Augie Meyers' new CD release, Santa Fe, delivers a bumper crop of country tunes that will be harvested for years to come with nine originals and two covers of songs by Dr. Ralph Stanley and San Antonio hillbilly rocker, Gene Jacoby. Augie says that no matter where he's ever been, his heart has always been in the country. Most of these tracks were originally recorded in the early 80s and only recently uncovered. With some slight editing and updates, they are finally available. With a 50+ year career that first gained him acclaim with the Sir Douglas Quintet, he’s been a member of the Texas Tornados as well as having been featured on landmark albums by Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, John Hammond, Tom Russell and Townes Van Zandt to name a few as well as on his eighteen solo albums.

 

 

THE LAST SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN

Band:DELFEAYO MARSALIS
Album:THE LAST SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

The Last Southern Gentlemen is a landmark recording for Delfeayo Marsalis, pairing father Ellis Marsalis, Jr. with son on a collaborative album for the first time. Marsalis' finest outing to date, the superb recording quality and meticulous production showcase his brilliant, classically trained tone as it swings effortlessly through standards and original compositions. The music is relaxed, thoughtful and provocative, acknowledging the love and respect of all people shared by Louis Armstrong and most early jazz entertainers. This sense of humanity and humility is at the center of the Southern lifestyle that birthed the original American music. Built on the intimacy of American ballads and the trombone's expressive mimicry of the human voice, The Last Southern Gentlemen is a firm acknowledgement of the existence and importance of these sweet, gentle sounds.

 

 

LEAVING

Band:CAVES
Album:LEAVING
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Third album from Bristol’s, Caves. Eight new tracks of noisy, feedback laden, pop punk.

Recorded early August 2014 it marks a significant change to the way Caves write and record music. Currently without a permanent drummer, singer / guitarist Lou Hanman takes on all three of these roles on Leaving. Thankfully with help of drumming friends from the likes of Spraynard, We Came Out Like Tigers, Young Livers & Bangers it hasn’t hampered their touring schedule either.

Now working as a duo to bring ideas to fruition, their musical experiences are now so intertwined through years of playing together on tour, they share the same vivid musical direction. Allowing them to be way more creatively direct whilst also combining the essence of the bands they love, drawing influence from the likes of The Breeders, Weezer, Swearin' and Queen.

THE FAIRWEATHER BAND

Band:FAIRWEATHER BAND
Album:THE FAIRWEATHER BAND
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:VINYL 12"
Genre:Punk / Emo

Debut ep from Exeter four piece The Fairweather Band, out 1st December on Specialist Subject Records.

The Fairweather Band’s frontman, Rory Matthews has been playing solo for a number of years under the moniker Some Sort of Threat and earlier this year formed this new group as a more rocking way to present his concise and intricate songwriting. Taking influence from the likes of Against Me!, Billy Bragg and The Weakerthans this is great, intelligent, lyrically driven rock.

It’s still early days for the band but if the quality of this EP and recent performances supporting RVIVR, Mike Watt  and Tim Kasher (Cursive) mean anything then it’s a very promising start.
