MILES AWAY

Band:HILDAMAY
Album:MILES AWAY
Label:A Wolf At Your Door Records
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Hildamay are the personification of success through sacrifice & their breathtaking debut album Miles Away is testament to this as front man Tim Lawrence explains; “I left a career in teaching to enable me to live in a sweaty, smelly van with my best mates and drive around playing shows. When handed an opportunity to do something you love doing you have to take it.” Miles Away is the stirring & heart straining sound of a band that have taken risks & the monumental highs & lows of being Miles Away from the ones they cherish.

Roughly a year since Hildamay delivered We Loved We Lost they have returned with their astonishing debut album Miles Away recorded with Oz Craggs of Feed The Rhino at Hidden Track Studios in Kent. It is evident from the outset that Miles Away has been crafted by individuals with varied & genre spanning influences. In stark comparison to the punk rock of We Loved, We Lost, this 12 track album is a thunderous & sensitive rock record. Hildamay have embraced the attack & force of post-hardcore legends Leatherface, Jawbox & Quicksand whilst combining elements of 90s grunge giving Miles Away a depth & diversity that maintains the listeners engagement throughout. However it is Hildamay’s ability to craft accessible & inviting hooks, in the vein of Deftones & Foo Fighters, which will see the record appeal to a wide range of music lovers.

August will see the band take to the tarmac once more as they tour the UK with Attention Thieves before closing a triumphant summer of festival performances which will have included Takedown, Redfest, Crash Doubt, Relentless Board Masters, Slam Dunk, main stage at Hit The Deck Festival & the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals. It has been a fraught & troubled journey but Lawrence would not have it any other way; “I couldn't ask for anything more & even though most of the time I am penniless I wouldn't change it for the world.” Miles Away is an outstanding testimony to sacrifice & conviction & with this Hildamay continue their ascension to the fore front of the UK music community one mile at a time.

 

 

RITUAL OF PASSING

Band:ATRIARCH
Album:RITUAL OF PASSING
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Portland, Oregon’s ATRIARCH, over the last few years since their formation and through several trials of finding their true sound, have already become recognized (even amongst publications such as Pitchfork and Decibel) as one of America’s most intriguing bands in the underground today. By conjuring a mesmerizing amalgamation of death rock, classic ’80s goth, along with doom and black metal respectively, ATRIARCH have finally found their sonic calling with their second full-length album “Ritual Of Passing”. While their “Forever The End” debut showed promise, the band were slowly still developing their sound which would blossom even more on the recent 12” vinyl split they did with their like-minded comrades in Alaric this past year (released on 20 Buck Spin). With their new album “Ritual Of Passing”, ATRIARCH’s promise shown on their debut (which was released last year, yet said songs on the debut being over two years old) has developed tenfold into one with more substance and depth, with a heavier sound, one that has made the band (a live band to also behold) into a force to be reckoned with within America’s underground heavy music scene.

Mirroring the sounds and aesthetics of such legendary bands as Bauhaus, Joy Division, Rudimentary Peni, early Cure, and Killing Joke, while incorporating the slightly more recent vibes of The Gault, Asunder, and Burzum, with “Ritual Of Passing” ATRIARCH have delivered one of the most stirring and mesmerizing releases of the year.

 

 

LONGING

Band:BELL WITCH
Album:LONGING
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Seattle’s BELL WITCH is an overbearing extreme doom metal duo that is only comprised of vocals, bass, and drums, that duo being bassist/vocalist Dylan Desmond (who is also the bass player in Seattle doom contingent SAMOTHRACE) and drummer/vocalist Adrian Guerra. The duo would make a huge impression within the doom metal scene with their self-titled demo, which became one of the most recognized demos within the doom metal since the PALLBEARER demo. With only the bare minimum at their disposal, Desmond and Guerra would utilize what instruments they had at hand to create some of the darkest, heaviest most-dismal time-stretching extreme doom in the scene today, and with their debut fulllength album “Longing”, they have just done that.

With a much all-encompassing sound, one that’s much heavy and sinister than their demo, “Longing” (which features guest vocals from Aerial Ruin’s Erik Moggridge on the track ‘Rows (of endless waves’) is a marathon-like exercise in extreme doom. One that does put one’s listening threshold to the test. But once engrossed in the overwhelming and emotionally draining sonic jaunt that is “Longing” (an album in which the band will also be very active on the live front for), then the listening experience becomes more enveloping and ultimately more obsessive.

For fans of ASUNDER, ALDEBARAN, and SAMOTHRACE

EARTHMOTHER

Band:SEAMOUNT
Album:EARTHMOTHER
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Fourth Album of the German / American band with Phil Swanson ( Hour of 13, Vestal Claret...) on vocals.

"This is the first concept record of sorts by Seamount. It was inspired by a friend and the change she made in me and how I look at life. Also by some revelations I had in a very deep and dark conversation with another friend when he helped me realize perhaps I have been hiding behind the negative because I had never witnessed the positive. Theres a simple tool to use when listening to this record. On the surface it plays like a spiritually themed storyline but if you replace the idea of faith and religion with “love” and god with the “one you love” then you can read between the lines. It is dedicated to the “greatest love” something Ive always wondered about and admired. I have a better understanding of what it is now and how we ourselves own our love and make it as strong as we choose. Its how much we are willing to give and offer not how much we receive. That’s why it can be “blind” at times. We create love the same as we create God, its our faith in it that makes it what it is". - Phil Swanson

 

 

GREEN VAPOUR

Band:LORD OF THE GRAVE
Album:GREEN VAPOUR
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

We all are doomed to die and sooner or later we will all end up as dust in the ground. So, we all have to face the «Lord of the Grave» some time. For those who are eager to have a slight foresight to this state can discover that here by themselves. It can be an earth shattering, almost outta-body experience, it will take you to death and even further. The hypnotic riffs and chants will disturb your mind in calming it down. Witness in an euphoric perception the stringy, sticky, blasting sound to which the undead would feast.

Lord of the Grave come from the doom of the Black Sabbath, playing the most leaden, sinister form of heavy metal/blues/rock n roll.

 

 

TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH

Band:OMAR AND THE HOWLERS
Album:TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

“Yes, I know, I know I have already released a tribute to Jimmy Reed. Let me be the first to say that I know this. On the Jimmy Reed Highway was a joy to record with Jimmie Vaughan and all of my good friends who played on that release. But damn the torpedoes, Too Much is not enough is a completely different approach to Jimmy Reed. The common thread between the two releases is the incredible talent featured on the tracks. The players are so good that the music speaks for itself. The most important reason to release these songs: they are the last recordings I did with my good friend, Gary Primich. I had planned to do a Jimmy Reed tribute for more than 20 years. My original idea was to release an Omar and the Howlers record which featured guest artists playing on some of the tracks. Too Much is not enough is the result of this vision.” Omar Kent Dykes, 2012

I LOVE HATE YOU

Band:CLAUDE HAY
Album:I LOVE HATE YOU
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Australian Claude Hay's album I Love Hate You follows up his critically acclaimed 2010 release Deep Fried Satisfied, a successful album for the indie artist worldwide. Claude performed live on National Public Radio and promptly shot to number nine on the US Billboard Blues charts. Deep Fried Satisfied hit top five on iTunes and MediaGuide, and on Amazon's top ten Blues albums of 2010, with the track 'Miss You So' polling third in Best Blues Song of the Year. I Love Hate You finds Claude in rare collaborative mood, with the input of other musicians, most notably members of the Sydney band, Chase The Sun. Mastering is courtesy of William Bowden [Gotye, Kylie Minogue, The Living End]. I Love Hate Yo' deals mainly with the things Claude loves, hates and loves to hate. From loved ones, great gigs, and motor vehicles to treacherous trans-continental bus rides and indifferent radio programmers.  

"Claude Hay is a blues/roots artist who, paradoxically, hails from Australias Blue Mountains but who delivers slide driven blues that take their inspiration from the Mississippi Delta and the Northern Mississippi Hill Country, liberally laced with funk and 60s blues rock, or should that be rocking blues. If you like Burnside, Kimbrough, North Mississippi Allstars et al then this set is for you". – Blues in Britain

 

 

LIVE IN HAMBURG - THE FABRIK CONCERT 1973

Band:EDGAR BROUGHTON BAND
Album:LIVE IN HAMBURG - THE FABRIK CONCERT 1973
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

In the course of their many tours on the European continent The Edgar Broughton Band guested on 10th of March 1973 in the FABRIK in Hamburg. What the Band did not know: the concert was recorded in full length , and then disappeared from the scene. We dug it and present it now in a digitally reworked version. A great moment in the long history of this British progressive blues band whose “Out Demons Ou”t became a political anthem of the seventies. It is, of course, among many other titles of the EBB to find on this CD. A true document.

 

 

SHIN JOONG HYUN and YUP JUNS

Band:SHIN JOONG HYUN AND YUP JUNS
Album:SHIN JOONG HYUN and YUP JUNS
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Spring of 1974 witnessed the birth of psychedelic power trio Shin Joong Hyun & Yup Juns. “In Korean, yupjun literally means a brass coin,” Shin explains. “However, during that time it was used as slang to describe a sense of unpleasantness and dislike. Since I was so unpleasant and dissatisfied [in my career], I told myself, ‘Ok, fine, I am just a yupjun,’ and named my band with a rebellious attitude.” He began by renting a room at Seoul’s Tower Hotel to serve as a creative base for the group. After six months of preparation, the group cut ten powerful songs filled with monster grooves, fuzz guitar, emotive singing, and top-notch songwriting. The album was pressed up as a broadcast-only promotional vinyl to test radio response; the response wasn’t what anyone expected, and the record label refused to release the album. The band re-recorded the album, but it is this, the original ten track version, that has become legendary—with good reason. An astounding record, and one that we are privileged to bring to the rest of the world for the first time. The 180 gram vinyl version comes in a deluxe old-style jacket, with OBI, and has a full color insert with liner notes and rare photos; the deluxe mini-LP sleeve CD version has a 20-page booklet with rare photos, and great stories about Shin Joong Hyun and his continuing place of prominence in the Korean music scene.

Packaged in a deluxe mini-LP package with OBI, enclosed in a re-sealable mylar bag. - The companion to the much-heralded Light in the Attic label compilation, Shin Joong Hyun “Beautiful Rivers and Mountains”

 

 

"1" and UNRELEASED MATERIAL

Band:KATH
Album:"1" and UNRELEASED MATERIAL
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Not many albums can get you in the mood to blow out your speakers quite like Kath, a band that evolved from local Maryland 1960’s band Badge. This is an authentic low-fi DIY effort, recorded in the home of the band’s leader (and, yes, actually dedicated to his pet monkey—and his girlfriend!), originally released in 1974 in a micro edition of 60 handmade copies, and later reconfigured for a legendary Rockadelic label LP version. Truth to tell, the Kath album is full of well written melodic songs with loose, semi-ramshackle, low-fi/no-fi production values. Nothing gets down and dirty quite like 'Say What You Feel,' with its blown out bass, killer guitar and drums, echoed vocals and sound effects; well, actually, ‘Love Me Down' is equally potent. The band also had a fondness for tape experimentation ('Seagulls') and simply screwing around ('Toilet Theme'). As Patrick the Lama said in Acid Archives, “Obscure and impressive melodic basement garage/psych excursion with a lo-fi atmosphere that would have most purveyors flip out, hits the Ampex two-track echo & tinny drum sound dead on.... At times the vibe is almost like Mystery Meat or Index, and that's not something you run across every day. A totally outside garage/psych/private LP that feels as personally projected as those Michael Yonkers sides. Nuts lo-fi recording quality and impossible-to-figure production values gives this a nicely zonked almost real-people vibe. Keyboards, fuzz, heap of amateur avant spirit and a cover of 'Norwegian Wood' that ranks up there as one of the few listenable Beatles covers ever cut by teens with brains." We've also included Badge's excellent 1978 five-track EP as bonus tracks. And since too far is never far enough for Lion Productions, we've also added an entire second disc of outtakes from the Kath recording sessions, plus other related home recordings. This 140-minute double disc set comes with twenty pages of extensive liner notes by Kath and Badge leader Val Rogolino, and a plethora of photos from his personal stash.

Budget-priced double disc package includes a 20- page booklet, with an introduction by Marcus, his incredible history in music, and lyrics.

 

 

LIMONADA

Band:LIMONADA
Album:LIMONADA
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Although they sprung ready-made from of the ashes of legendary candombe/beat group El Kinto, one of the best-kept secrets from Uruguay’s musical mythology is nevertheless the group of musicians who recorded one album as Limonada. So what happened? The story starts with the end of El Kinto, when band leader and iconoclastic maniac Eduardo Mateo decided to embark on a solo career (see our Lion Productions collection of his early music for more details), and the other members of El Kinto said “let’s do something together.” And so it was that in the middle of 1970, Limonada recorded their one and only album, “LimoNada” (Sondor 33.111). It is a strange record, with backwards tape splices and abrupt song changes, that remains at the same time absolutely accessible and very groovy, in a Tropicalia sort of way, which might explain why it was an immediate success. In truth, it’s a profound mystery why the Limonada LP—one of the ten best sellers of its time within three weeks of its release—seems to have vanished from the consciousness of even the most devoted fans of obscure music. Until now, of course. Now, on to the presentation—the highest quality mastering and pressing (done at Acoustech Mastering/RTI in California, the same people who master and press every title that audiophile label Classic Records makes); the resulting LP is housed in a poly-lined sleeve, inside an ultra-heavy 1960's style jacket, which is housed in a loose-fitting plastic sleeve. Inside you will find an insert with historical background on the Uruguayan scene, details of the band’s past, plenty of photos, as well as a brief overview of the legendary Sondor label, printed on 100% recycled paper. The LP labels are replicas of the Sondor originals. A top of the line pressing all the way. Limited edition of 500 copies.

WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST - LP

Band:ZZEBRA
Album:WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST - LP
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL - LP
Genre:Prog Rock

ZZEBRA (est. 1974) in its original encarnation was an amalgamation of two brilliant bands. Terry Smith and Dave Quincey from IF and Lasissi (Doughty) Amao from OSIBISA. Liam Genockey and John McCoy were brought in on drums and bass, and Gus Yeadon (ex-Love Affair) on keyboards and vocals. ZZEBRA was a hard-working road band and it's improvisitational natural couple with the sheer power of the rhythm section allowed it to constantly experiment without losing the audience. The combination of jazz, serious heavy rock and Nigerian folk music was incredible and new on the scene. The result can be heard on this phantastic debut album from 1974, released back on 180 gram vinyl for the first time.

PHASE V

Band:35007
Album:PHASE V
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Drone/Ambient

35007 is the code name for a projectile with a unique sound. Ranging from firm grooves drenched in multiple layers of sound and hypnotic riffs to flowing soundscapes. A fine combination of past and future in influences and technique. This sound has been captured on the very well-received albums "Especially for You" - 1994 (remastered and rereleased in '99) and "35007" - 1997, released exactly 50 years after Chuck Yeager's first sonic boom. These albums contain instrumental as well as tracks with vocals. The 10" / CDM "Sea of Tranquillity" - 2001, marked the appearance of 35007 MARK IV as well as the shift to even more hypnotic instrumental terrain. It goes beyond the conventional rock formula and astonished critics and audience. It was followed in 2002 by the fully instrumental sound track "Liquid", which continued to expand the boundaries of their sonic universe. The album contains 4 voluminous tracks which take the listener on a surprising and sometimes unexpected journey. On the latest release, "Phase V", 35007 continue the fully instrumental journey, this time leading into more abstract terrain, led by the roman philosopher Boethius (480-526) who stated that "music is mathematics made audible". With the digit 5 hovering predominantly, the album is about numbers and sounds. No words, no images. The new album has already been nicknamed "songs for the blind", appropriately "visualized" by the minimal and sensuous artwork. Without the benefit of vision, the ears seem to work much better. Phase V is an intermediate state. No physical manifestation is to be expected in the foreseeable future, only time will tell what the next phase will be. Be prepared, as 35007 catapults your head into the next dimension. 35007 is a state of mind. First time on vinyl ever!

SCRAP BOOK BALLADS VOL 1

Band:ROBERT JAMES SELBY
Album:SCRAP BOOK BALLADS VOL 1
Label:GRASMERE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

 

 "A rakish, annoyingly handsome devil, Selby’s songs eschew the introspective navel-gazing of other songwriters, each song a tribute to a life – or lives – lived. The album kicks off with the sprightly pairing of ‘Hard Love’ and ‘Cats Of Pere Lachaise’, both dancing on a Scarlet Riviera-ish violin, while Selby calls down the stars with his ebulliently untutored vocal. There’s a definite loose-limbed “let’s do the album right here”, ‘Basement Tapes’ feel to the whole album, adding wonderfully to its debauched charm. Meanwhile, the Bolan-esque ‘Illuminations’, ‘I Still Adore’ (with a hint of Smiths) and the jangling ‘Bigger Than Life’ (with gorgeous soulful backing vocals) give proceedings a slightly quirky pop edge likely to set this album apart from the rest of this year’s pack. A charming talent with a refreshing lust for life, Selby is definitely one to look out for" - Americana UK

ORAN

Band:JANNE WESTERLUND
Album:ORAN
Label:9PM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Janne Westerlund is surely one of the most interesting musicians of recent Finnish underground music's history. Guitarist of one of Finland's most influencial progressive avantgarde rock bands, Sweetheart, being today considered Finland's answer to Cpt. Beefheart. Currently he's playing in CIRCLE, one of the highest rated Finnish outfits in improvised music/psychedelic rock, one of the few Finnish bands in that genre touring regularly the US, the UK and continental Europe. As a songwriter/guitarist he's fronting PLAIN RIDE, a group with so far four outstanding Americana/Songwriter Pop releases under their belt. Particularly the PLAIN RIDE material pointed the direction he now hits full swing with his solo debut album. The material Westerlund wrote and recorded over the past three years is indeed remarkable in it's maturity and quality. Janne Westerlund combines reduced but nevertheless skilled guitar and banjo picking with the fine art of story telling. One of the things that make his approach so unique is the way he manages to sneak around standard phrasing and worn out chord changes. His ability of pushing the limits of intensity with his hoarse voice, with very personal yet vivid lyrics, on basis of brillantly picked patterns, resembling loops, is an at least exceptional go on the genre.

UK Tourdates: 04/12/12 Bristol, 05/12/12 Bath, 06/12/12 Glasgow, 07/12/12 Birmingham, 08/12/12 Brighton, 10/12/12 London

 

 

SYSTEM PREFERENCES

Band:EARLIMART
Album:SYSTEM PREFERENCES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Earlimart's System Preferences is a lush and lovely soundtrack for a sad, beautiful world. It's an album that touches on disillusionment with and acceptance of technology, complex relationships, and lost weekends. The Los Angeles-based duo of Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray retain tones and textures familiar to fans of the band's six previous albums of whispering and stomping indie rock. But they've grown as songwriters and producers. From familiar sonic waters they embark on a journey that allows them to get lost -- with the novel excitement that entails. System Preferences is their sonic dead reckoning resulting in a joyous return to the band's Californian port of call.

“From the opening guitar strum, the laid back simplicity is a trademark by this L.A.-based duo.“ - POPMATTERS

But they've grown as songwriters and producers. From familiar sonic waters they embark on a journey that allows them to get lost -- with the novel excitement that entails. System Preferences is their sonic dead reckoning resulting in a joyous return to the band's Californian port of call.

Limited edition 180 gram Double LP contains 2 bonus tracks and download card.

“From the opening guitar strum, the laid back simplicity is a trademark by this L.A.-based duo.“ - POPMATTERS

 

 

LOCAL H

Band:LOCAL H
Album:LOCAL H
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Alt Rock

"Hallelujah! I’m A Bum!" is the seventh studio album from pioneering two-man, Chicago band Local H, who are known for their gut-quaking live shows and incredibly loyal fanbase. The 17-track, double-album was produced by metal guru Sanford Parker (Yakuza, Bloodiest, Pelican) and showcases the band rocking harder than ever. It’s an epic concept record that sees frontman Scott Lucas setting his sights on the deeply divided political climate that exists in the U.S. and around the world, using his hometown as a backdrop to sardonically comment on how this polarization personally impacts people within their communities, their neighborhoods and even their relationships. A dog theme runs throughout, making it a fitting companion to the band’s widely praised 1998 concept album Pack Up the Cats, which earned a spot in SPIN magazine’s top 20 albums of that year. This is their first album of new material since 2008’s critically acclaimed 12 Angry Months, for which the Chicago Tribune named them “Chicagoans of the Year,” more than a decade after their breakthrough hit “Bound for the Floor” ruled the Modern Rock charts.

Limited Edition Double LP. Pack Up the Cats earned a spot in SPIN magazine’s top 20 albums of that year.

 

 

EAT YOUR YOUNG

Band:SOLID GOLD
Album:EAT YOUR YOUNG
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Solid Gold’s second album: Eat Your Young, is a slow-burning set of skittish synths, glassy beats, ripple effect riffs, and melancholic melodies that leave you wondering what left a trail of scar tissue deep within the group’s core trio (frontman Zack Coulter and multi-instrumentalists Matthew Locher and Adam Hurlburt). Eat Your Young creeps across your speakers like a quiet storm, ebbing and flowing at every turn, from the exorcised demons of “The Pendulum” to the bookending outbursts of “Shock Notice” and “In the Hollows.” All of which sounds incredibly confident despite the record’s shades of darkness. That’s because Solid Gold spent years developing their musical and lyrical concepts, beginning with their smoky club formation at the University of Wisconsin and becoming much more of a serious pursuit once the group moved to Minneapolis and tracked their 2008 debut, Bodies of Water.

 

 

KINDER MACHINES

Band:BEATEN BY THEM
Album:KINDER MACHINES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Beaten by Them's fifth release, Kinder Machines, could be one of the finest sounding records you will ever hear. Building on the college radio chart-topping successes of last year's thumping "Invisible Origins" and ethereal follow-up "People Start Listening", the San Francisco/Melbourne/New York ensemble's latest offering sucks the listener in from the first booming kick, never letting go over a joyous ride that was captured and mixed completely live to tape on a Northern Californian farm by Grammywinning engineer Oz Fritz (Tom Waits, Bill Laswell, The Ramones). Combining powerhouse drumming and percussion, intense bass and electronic layers, soaring cello and trumpet lines, ever-present keyboards and hypnotic acoustic guitar mantras, Kinder Machines is a triumphant musical statement that blurs musical boundaries, reaffirming Beaten by Them's critical standing as one of modern music's most exciting, creative and surprising groups. Presented in a beautiful individually numbered limited first edition hardcover digibook package.

Album:SIGNALS TO A HABITABLE ZONE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:LP/DVD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Clear vinyl LP with DVD and blueprint - Hand numbered with invisible ink and limited to 500. After a few years of consistently dazzling live audiences in that most-jaded Earthbound portal of New York City, Long Distance Poison have released compositions via Thurston Moore's label Ecstatic Peace and Steve Moore's imprint VCO, Long Distance Poison (with production by Brendon Anderegg of Mountains) have now created two pieces of true experimentation: Signals to a Habitable Zone. Long Distance Poison have utilized two distinct "signals," (songs for the stars) also set to visual accompaniment by director Matthew Caron and included on a separate DVD.

"Signals To A Habitable Zone succeeds because it dares to deploy all of the appropriate bleeps and whirrs calculated to send listeners spinning into a deep trance, yet they don't sound like anyone but themselves. Bravo." Julian Cope

 

 

TASTYVILLE

Band:THREE SECOND KISS
Album:TASTYVILLE
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

Just take a song like Maya. It starts with a deep and declamatory voice, which almost reminds a sort of Ian Curtis’ american melody stretched out on a carpet of obsessive drum and bass that seems to be coming from Rio de Janeiro more than from Chicago, topped by a slippery guitar that makes you think punk also bloomed in Caribbean lands. Suddenly melody changes and a skinny rock stone takes its place. It is made of solid and blank parts and the melody gives way to scratching frames, the guitar and drums chase as guttural bellowing of elephants who rest only at the end, where tribal rhythm collapses and yealds to a skeletal melancholy blues. Maya is just one of the 9 tracks featured on Tastyville, the new Three Second Kiss album after 4 years from the previous Long Distance (2008 African Tape), but it is the metaphor-song of a work born from the belly most than the brain. Each piece meets only the cinematic structure of the skin, changing course and direction without premeditation of style that is not the free guide of instinct. Tastyville shows a new strength of the Italian band, its desire to open up and let luxuriantly explode a sound - the rough and minimal sound created by the guitar, bass, drums triangle - in a brand new and free fluorescence that maintains the attitude of punk without its but visionary sound anymore. May be that's why Tastyville is an experience that embodies several emotional states rather than showing us only one philological style. No labels to spend ‘cause everything is mixed, blended and digested. After many years of activities so many things have been told about Three Second Kiss. For us, the 9 tracks of Tastyville are primitive, emotional and visionare music. This is exactly what remains when you take away the superfluous.

VIDEO MUSICS 3

Band:ALEXIS GIDEON
Album:VIDEO MUSICS 3
Label:African Tape
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Avantgarde/Electronic

Alexis Gideon Reveals What 20th c Irish Literature, Avant-garde Music and Stop-motion Animation Can Offer Each Other. Alexis Gideon will be presenting the third installment in his critically- acclaimed multimedia opera series, Video Musics III: Floating Oceans, beginning this fall. Portland, Oregon’s historic Hollywood Theatre will host the world premiere on October 11, 2012. Gideon is an interdisciplinary iconoclast whose body of work joyfully challenges the presumed constraints of visual arts and music genres. Where others attempting the same projects might get lost in the weeds, Gideon’s ferocious intelligence and crystal-clear vision produces some of the most engaging pieces audiences will encounter. Gideon worked with Cynthia Star (Lead Painter for Coraline, Laika Studios) and Jacob Rubin (Best New American Voices), among others, to produce the video piece. Video Musics III: Floating Oceans was funded by a generous award from The Regional Arts and Culture Council, the second consecutive grant from this organization Gideon has received. (Gideon’s first RACC award was for Video Musics II: Sun Wu-Kong). Video Musics III: Floating Oceans is a 38-minute stop-motion animation video opera based on the works of the early 20th century Irish writer Lord Dunsany, and inspired by the time and dream experiments of the Irish physicist John William Dunne. The piece is dedicated to Flann O’Brien. Video Musics III: Floating Oceans contrasts the vivid dreams of its poet-protagonist with the foreboding routine of pedestrian life. Parts operate under the tow of dream logic. All dialogue and narration are expressed through lyrics and music performed live in front of the projected video. The piece explores non-linear and traditional linear narrative, and uses the musical meters of modern classical, hip-hop, ambient, and psychedelia.

 

 

SHADOW BOXING

Band:ZION I
Album:SHADOW BOXING
Label:IDC
Format:CD
Genre:Rap/Hip Hop

Hip-Hop group Zion I continue to forge new ground musically on their latest LP Shadowboxing, a beat-heavy hip-hop album decidedly grittier than past projects. Always pushing the literal—and figurative—needle forward, the duo, consisting of emcee Zumbi, and producer Amp Live, have once again created something experimental and heartfelt. Shadowboxing features guests such as Bassnectar, Collie Buddz, Grouch and Eligh, and Goapele. A move from the live instrumentation of their last record, Shadowboxing enlists a range of producers such as Traxamillion, DexBeats, Minnesota, who bring an unconventional, eclectic flavour to the album. Thematically, Shadowboxing is signature Zion I: "This is an album about metaphorical kicks and throws at oneself," explains Zumbi, "looking inward at the shadow self, and seeking awareness in the darkness of one's own psyche."

"Pairs is a duo from Shanghai who kick out heavy hypnotic lo‐fi shit rock punk pop that kills, their sound dense and noisy and jangly and chaotic, the sound rooted in classic indie rock for sure, but here delivered in a sort of shitgaze style" -  Aquarius Records

Written, recorded and produced in a couple of weeks Pairs continue their quest to be the best band you never heard of. 17 tracks, all recorded in one weekend while buried deep in an underground cold war bunker in Shanghai, produced by The Acid Pony Club and delivered on double vinyl.

Xiao Zhong and F of Pairs say……… “If this cockroach doesn’t die, I will” is 17 songs about dying abroad, being in a shit band, having a shit boss, spending stupid amounts of time with people who bring out the worst in you and ignoring the great people around you and being frustrated by lazy people.”

ULJAS UUSI MAAILMA

Band:Kuolemanlaakso
Album:ULJAS UUSI MAAILMA
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Named after one of the lowest, dryest and hottest places on Earth, Kuolemanlaakso (”Death Valley”) took its first breath in the Spring of 2010. The band originally started out as a one man project of guitarist Laakso (Chaosweaver). Much influenced by ”Eparistera Daimones” of Triptykon, Laakso’s mission was to create an utterly dark and heavy album, full of catchy hooks and originality. A tragically beautiful world of its own. It was clear from the start that the lyrics would be recited in Finnish. They were inspired by Eino Leino’s (1878– 1926) poem collection ”Helkavirsiä”, the mystique of the Finnish forests and of the morbidness of the modern world.

The feedback from an unreleased 4-song demo recording was so overwhelmingly positive from fellow musicians, that Laakso decided to recruit some of them, and make Kuolemanlaakso a fully operating 5-head outfit. And not just anybody, but some of his favourite bandsmen: vocalist Kotamäki (Swallow the Sun, Barren Earth), guitarist Kouta (Chaosweaver, ex-Verjnuarmu), bassist Usva (Elenium, The Nibiruan) and drummer Tiera (Discard, Cult of Endtime).

The band packed their bags in February 2012 and flew to Woodshed Studio, Germany, which is operated by non other than V. Santura of Triptykon and Dark Fortress fame. Santura not only co-produced, mixed, mastered and engineered the crushing debut album ”Uljas uusi maailma” (”Brave New World”), but he also provided guest guitars on five tracks on it upon his own request as he liked the material so much.

The band’s live Missions are attracting increasing numbers of enthusiastic and loyal Legions of Squadroneers and Stuka Squadron are now busy preparing for further live work. The first confirmed date for 2013 is at Hammerfest V.

"Stuka Squadron’s force of will is a rare cause in itself, mixing bright-eyed ambition and spit 'n' sawdust endeavour that for their devoted - and sure-to-grow - legion of fans verges on unabashed delirium." Metal Hammer, Live Review May 2012

 

 

LEGIONS OF THE DEEP

Band:ARKHAM WITCH
Album:LEGIONS OF THE DEEP
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

ARKHAM WITCH is a name that should be already familiar to the old school heavy metal and doom fans, especially those into THE LAMP OF THOTH, the previous band of the vocalist Simon and drummer Emily. On their sophomore album the group serves one ridiculously catchy "hit" after another. Their influences are pretty obvious: DEEP SWITCH, HELL, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, JUDAS PRIEST, PENTAGRAM, SAINT VITUS, MANILLA ROAD... but at the same time it's not possible to mistake them for any other band (except for TLoT perhaps), as their personality shines strongly through their music and attitude. It's straightforward doom and NWOBHM laden traditional metal, occult, but with a tinge of humor, with these trademark bard/brigand type vocals of Simon. And if it makes you do weird moves and speak in strange tongues, you are not alone... you've just joined the Legions of the Deep!

Burning Saviours came together in 2003 when Mikael Marjanen (guitar) and Martin Wijkström (drums) discussed starting a heavy rock/doom metal band. They named the band after a Pentagram song from the album Day of Reckoning. They teamed up with bassist Fredrik Evertsson and vocalist Andrei Amartinesei to record their first demo entitled Dayterrors in 2004. Amartinesei picked up guitar in addition to vocals for their second demo, The Crusade of Evil, also recorded in 2004. The band soon discarded their previous songs and recorded a new demo, Into the Abyss in late 2004. This demo generated enough buzz to get the band added to the annual German "Doom Shall Rise III" festival in 2005 as well as a record contract with I Hate Records. Their self-titled debut was released in May 2005. Hundus, their second album, was released in June 2006 on I Hate Records. A single was released on Rise Above Records in December 2006.

DEMOS.

Band:ABOMINATION
Album:DEMOS.
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Death Metal

12”LP gatefold / A2 poster / insert

Along with DEATH STRIKE, SPECKMANN PROJECT and FUNERAL BITCH, ABOMINATION is the last of the many aliases used by Paul Speckmann at some point of his career to carry out his vision while for one reason or another, MASTER had to be put on the backburner for a while. But whereas all the others proved to be short-lived affairs, ABOMINATION turned out to be a much more solid and productive affair, producing two full-lenghts and one EP in the process. Yet, this is where it all started…

As Speckmann reveals himself in the extensive liner notes included with this deluxe LP, the beast awoken after he had met drummer Aaron Nicklas in 1986 while trying to keep FUNERAL BITCH afloat. Even if ABOMINATION was already an active band, it’s the combination of both Speckmann and Nicklas, completed by a series of guitar players, that really set things in motion.

Compiled here together and officially sanctioned by the band, their first two demos recordings from 1988 and 1989, simply known as the ‘Red Demo’ and the ‘Black Demo’, are reunited here for the first time on vinyl. Even if MASTER longtime fans will be able to instantly recognize Speckmann’s vitriolic stance and even some former MASTER/DEATH STRIKE material re-recorded (“The Truth”), ABOMINATION punkier and more hardcore-tinged approach set them apart from the start.

 

 

OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

Band:THE OFFHOOKS
Album:OUTSIDE LOOKING IN
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage

Some may recall The Offhooks as legends of the Scottish garage revival scene back in the late 80s/early 90s. So for all you hungry dogs who thought the dynamite mini LP ‘Off The Hook’ was the group’s only recorded legacy, here’s where things get exciting: a complete, previously unreleased album, recorded in March 1990 at Chamber Studios in Edinburgh! This is no set of demos or rehearsal tapes, this is the real deal – its original release was only scuppered by the bankruptcy of the intended label! But aside from the historical importance of this album, what about the crucial bit – the music? Rest assured – it’s a killer! Equal parts fuzz and jangle, pounding beat-tastic bass and drums [that’s hallowed Thanes frontman, Lenny Helsing rattling the traps], topped off with classic snarled-out angst-ridden vocals courtesy of Calvin Burt.

STARING AT THE SOUND

Band:THE GALILEO 7
Album:STARING AT THE SOUND
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage

As a member of such semi-legends as the Prisoners, The Solarflares and JTQ, Allan Crockford played an important part in establishing the Medway area's reputation as a hotbed for spirited, uncompromising garage rock with a strong DIY ethic. Playing with such Medway notables as Graham Day, Billy Childish and James Taylor, his reputation was as the reliable sideman for more flamboyant figures. After finally realising that songwriting wasn't one of the dark arts, he recruited some of Medway's least annoying musicians and formed The Galileo 7. The band's sound leans in a more pop-psych direction than some of Allan's previous rougher-hewn combos. While they still have the trademark gritty guitar, saturated organ, drive and energy of those unashamedly garage-rocking outfits, the new album tips the balance further towards crafted songs and harmonies.

Album:PLAY SOMETHING WE KNOW
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage

Groovy Uncle is the latest project from Medway mainstay Glenn Prangnell (Kravin’ “A”s, Goodchilde et al). Steeped in the ‘Delta Beat’ tradition, the LP features a stellar cast of supporting musicians, including Allan Crockford (Galileo 7, Prisoners, JTQ), Ben Jones (Lovedays), Paul Moss (likewise), Ian Snowball (Aunt Nelly, Effectives) and the acclaimed State session players. More importantly, the 12-song set showcases a brace of damn fine songs from Glenn, rich in Beatlesque harmonies and melody, fully realised at Sandgate Sound Studios’ analogue 8-track recording facility. Many months of intensive sessions have resulted in what can only be described as a modern masterpiece - which doesn’t sound at all modern, thankfully.

In these times of homogenised, reconstituted, pick'n'mix pop celebrity culture, where stylists, management teams and focus groups work hard to ensure that puddings are over-egged, under cooked and served with a sickly sweet dollop of banality, it comes as a refreshing change when presented with a platter like "Girl From The Neck Down". The long overdue debut LP from Cardiff- based "singist" Suzi Chunk is a collection of songs written by Glenn Prangnell and the brief was simple; to come up with the kind of record they don't make anymore. Four of the tracks have already seen the light of day while the rest have been written especially with Suzi in mind.

With 3 critically acclaimed singles and an already legendary LP under his belt, PAUL MESSIS returns to the fray with a new 45, straight outta The Haight via Sandoz Laboratories.

“Sunflower” b/w “As Nightmares Turn To Dreams” is the hip new single which features two Messis-penned psych monsters. Light and Darkness is the essence of this release: the vibrations of Springtime on one side and Autumn on the other; a yin and yang energy which is brought to life with autoharp and sitar, plus the addition of underground chanteuse Jessica Winter on vocals. The Hall Of Mirrors songstress adds an ethereal air of grace to Messis' songwriting and this combined with the songs and sound makes for the realisation of the only psychedelic single this year!

ENDESSIAH

Band:TREAH SEKTORI
Album:ENDESSIAH
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

We proudly welcome the French Dehn Sora to the Cyclic Law family with his solo project Treha Sektori. Dehn Sora is also a member of Sembler Deah (Featuring members of Amenra) and a long time collaborator of the Church Of Ra.Treha Sektori means "the place where they fall", formed in 2005 from a feeling of absence, to express through instinctive language and silent odes a falling towards the Sun. SOLVAH. SEVERAH. SOLEMNH (Where can we learn how to die, when soil became sky ?). "Endessiah" is for the end of movement, literally meanning "to let go everything". When the mind ceases to respond to the physical world around him. Endessiah was built in doubt, fear, self-beating, screams, smiles and euphoria. Maybe more in reclaim for light, but always face down. The album was composed while searching for a certain state before recording anything, to realize what will be recorded, not as an inspiration, but a recording of the moment. No keyboards were used and a predominance of voices and strings instruments (guitars, esraj, polynesian mandoline, banjo...) were utilized with a will of fading every sources into a distinctive sound mass. Endessiah comes from a surge of feelings, capturing what came to be seen, and trying to determine if it was real or not. A constant will of searching for something "alter", something, some where else. "To let go of everything". CD Edition of 1000 copies in 6 panel digi sleeve. 6 Tracks. Running Time 44:20

STRANGE GODS

Band:MINCEMEAT OR TENSPEED
Album:STRANGE GODS
Label:ZUM
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

"No synthesizers, samplers, sequencers, drum machines, computers, musical instruments." In the liner notes for "Strange Gods," Providence's David Harms has turned his methodology into an ideological stance. Using solely effects pedals and a mixer, Harms started Mincemeat Or Tenspeed as a recording project that became a live entity back in 2006. The sound of the pedals themselves took precedence over an abortive attempt to learn guitar and Harms began making rhythmic and melodic adjustments out of the feedback circuit. Labor-intensive trial and error lead to a compositional approach that is mistaken for pure improvisation. The first "official" Mincemeat Or Tenspeed CD release, the seven (and a half) tracks here set the bar for "maximal minimalism", post-apocalyptic chirps and whirrs shifting and coalescing, cresting and searching for catharsis. Reminiscent of "a smart ass take on Steve Reich" (Z Gun) or even the synth-scuzz of Mr. Brinkman, Mincemeat Or Tenspeed makes experimental music accessible by virtue of its simplicity.

"Mincemeat or 10 Speed is my favorite performer right now. He is the master of his domain. More human than human. Like four people become one person and start right awesome music for feedback manipulation. Killer diy, low budget live electronics from Philly. Super nice guys and total dorks. The real deal." - Dan Deacon, Pitchfork "Best of 2007" list

 

 

SPIRIT OF THE WEST

Band:HIGH CASTLE
Album:SPIRIT OF THE WEST
Label:ZUM
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

First album from San Francisco power trio High Castle know your plight, carving out autonomy in the midst of wasteland squalor. Paranoia and bad attitude permeate - carpooling to the riots while their peers crisp on corporate beach blankets. The black circular saw on the cover speaks for the content within, a destiny manifested tooth by jagged tooth. High Castle eschews lectures and overt philosophical talk, but naming themselves after a Phillip K Dick novel lets you know where they're coming from. "Crustaceans Demise" and "We Were Lovers" are ballads for a postapocalyptic affair gone awry, thrones usurped and food pyramids collapsed. Bassist Wilson Drozdowski (Woman's Worth), guitarist Erin Allen (Child Pornography), and powerhouse drummer Shaggy Denton (Sunny Reaper) all contribute vocals, a secret weapon that comes to the fore on "Innocence." Eleven songs tracked by Jacob Felix Heule (Ettrick, Barn Owl) at New, Improved Recordings in Oakland, CA mixed by Heule and the band.

“A record of moods, messages, brazen noise and West Coast anger, and driven by an intelligence that is kept in reserve for the appropriate moment, High Castle’s Spirit of the West is a work of some stature…It’s a great, sharp and focused record and could be a soundtrack for our times” – IncendiaryMag.com

LIGHTIN THE SHADOWS

Band:KALY LIVE DUB
Album:LIGHTIN THE SHADOWS
Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:CD
Genre:Electro Dub / Dubstep/Grime/Hip Hop

It took a couple of years of epic gigs and artistic maturation to get the raw material for “Lightin' the Shadows”, Kaly Live Dub's upcoming release. Deeply rooted in reggae, this burning double album also shows the band's ability to learn from diverse and eclectic influences. This album is made of haunting and crawling tracks, raised here and there with some Wobble Bass, or spreading an ecstatic astonishment. Hip-Hop is also given a first-rank place with the stunning “Conflicts”, carried by the singular and punchy flow of K-the-I??? (from Big Dada). Within the exploration of these new-sounding fields, the band's artistic signature remains : the fundamental basis is a warm, vibrant and organic sound, played live by talented musicians.

This album, close to excellence, clearly fulfils all expectations, and is proving once again the vitality of the French dub scene, and an always renewed inspiration for Kaly Live Dub.

HUMPPABINGO

Band:ELAKELAISET
Album:HUMPPABINGO
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

Humppa versions of rock classics and lyrics dealing with life of thee lderly, heavy on the sarcasm. Eläkeläiset was started as a joke in the spring 1993. The idea was to play rock classics in humppa style. Over the years the joke has proved to be far reaching – Eläkeläiset has earned wide recognition with bold humppa style and released not less than eight albums as well as couple of live albums and compilations alongside nine EPs. Eläkeläiset was at the peak of their popularity in 1995, when a real humppa scoop shook the nation in the summer. In the past years, the joyous noise of humppa has risen up to the heavens and carried out to foreign territories. Eläkeläiset has become a fixture.. an anarchistic and inebriated institution of sorts. In addition to cover songs, it has dabbled in composing its own humppa classics. Over the last ninteen years, it has toured all over Europe and has recording contracts in Central Europe and Russia. It has generated a book, a DVD, a couple of live albums and a plethora of merchandise raging from towels to hip flasks. Not bad for a disposable joke! The strangest thing so far is to try and qualify as Finland's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest of 2010. The band is competing with a song Hulluna humpasta which was released in a compilation Humppa Bingo in December 9th, 2009.

Genre:Black Metal

KOLP are a mysterious Hungarian horde, now solely comprising the members Knot and Jim Jones. The band's The Covered Pure Permanence debut displayed a black metal band both traditional yet adventurous, and now KOLP's The Outside sees them taking both traditionalism and adventurous even further. The Outside comprises eight tortured compositions that go to the deepest core, as the world shrinks - where light doesn't exist and darkness has no meaning. In that core where only hatred lives, there’s a gateway to the Outside, to the Void: this is the sound of KOLP's The Outside.

 

 

HEL.

Band:MELENCOLIA ESTATICA
Album:HEL.
Label:TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

MELENCOLIA ESTATICA is the sole vision of one Climaxia, arguably the most ambitious woman in black metal. Handling guitar, bass, vocal orchestrations, and overall concept, Climaxia has made MELENCOLIA ESTATICA one of Italy's premiere black metal bands this past decade, and now her third and latest Hel sees her vision growing bolder and more daring. Inspired by Fritz Lang's masterpiece Metropolis, MELENCOLIA ESTATICA’s Hel is a cruel vision of reality where hope is nothing but a shivering dream, a short moment suffocated by the greyness of factories’ background. The repetitive ticking of the clock of modernity that consumes mankind, a golden age of slavery where spirit is just a number to be forgotten: Hel marks a further step on the path of MELENCOLIA ESTATICA, a new dawn of musical decadence. MELENCOLIA ESTATICA are a new signing to TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS, having reaped critical acclaim with 2008's Letum, released on ATMF
