WINTERLAND

Band:THE JIGSAW SEEN
Album:WINTERLAND
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

Building on the success of their critically acclaimed, CMJ charting 2010 release Bananas Foster, The Jigsaw Seen return this autumn with the meticulously produced Winterland, a winter-themed song cycle showcasing the group’s conceptual take on the season. The tone is set for Winterland on the opening track What About Christmas? with pounding drums, fuzz bass, mellotron and a lyric cautiously anticipating the heightened emotions of the coming season. USA Today declared that the song “deserves to be part of the permanent seasonal repertoire.” The icy mellotron continues through the atmospheric piece that is December and the Massachusetts-via-Berlin groove of Snow Angels Of Pigtown, imbuing the snow angels with their own Chariots Of The Gods style mythology. A heavily reverb-soaked baritone guitar abruptly takes the proceedings into Woman Loves The Season, a song that recalls the chill-inducing ballads of Gene Clark. The twelve-string cracker Candy Cane, with its thunderous bass and drums, closes out the side with a wicked dash through a yuletide dystopia. Side two picks up with Circle Of Steel, a song that fits the Winterland concept so perfectly that you’d probably be surprised to discover it’s actually a Gordon Lightfoot song, originally appearing on his 1974 album Sundown. Christmas Behind Me sees the album’s narrator leaving the cold weather behind and taking off for a new start with some resignation. First Day Of The New Year attempts to resolve an uncertain future, as a somber organ weaves it’s way through a stately piano-driven arrangement. The listener is finally offered a release from the frigid setting with the soaring, optimistic Dreams Of Spring, a song that introduces a first for The Jigsaw Seen: a female choir at the outro to bring the penultimate track home. The album closes with Winterland’s Gone, one of the most beautiful songs The Jigsaw Seen have recorded, showcasing a delicate mix of acoustic guitars, flute and bass clarinet. The song looks back on the season with a nostalgic eye and gracefully sums up the climate of Winterland.

Among Winterland’s many highlights is a guest appearance by rock icon Dave Davies of The Kinks, lending his vocal talents to the band’s version of Gordon Lightfoot’s Circle Of Steel.

“The Jigsaw Seen plough a gloriously arranged and sumptuously produced furrow, a swoon-filled noise to stave off winter blues.” THE LONDON EVENING STANDARD

BLOOD LUST

Band:UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS
Album:BLOOD LUST
Label:SVART / KILLER CANDY
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

BACK AT LAST WITH A LIMITED REPRESS THIS MUCH SOUGHT AFTER SECOND ALBUM ! VINYL CHANGING HANDS FOR £500 - DON’T MISS OUT!

Formed in the old wastelands of witchery and paranoia, Cambridgeshire band Uncle Acid and the deadbeats deliver the new sound of 60's terror. This popular beat combo crawled from its secluded hideout in 2009 to record their debut album, 'Vol. 1' for Killer Candy Records. With a limited release in 2010, the album was warmly received with the track 'Witches Garden' appearing on a Classic Rock Magazine cover CD. The band also drew the attention of Leif Edling from legendary doom band Candlemass, who would later recommend them to Lee Dorrian at Rise Above.

The group's second album Blood Lust (2011) was recorded in a dilapidated barn known as The Slaughter House. Using old fuzz pedals and broken amps to create a lo fi saturated sound, the entire album was laid to rest on tape in the space of four cold months. Blood Lust tells the story of a drug crazed sadist who embarks on a witchfinding killing spree before meeting his own demise at the withered hands of Satan. The bands intention was to create an audio equivalent of a 60's exploitation horror film. After a steady start in sales, demand for the album eventually grew beyond all expectations with all pressings quickly selling out, including a Rise Above vinyl pressing of 350 which sold out in just 24 hours.

 

 

FREERMASONRY

Band:WOLD
Album:FREERMASONRY
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Canada’s most notorious and most alien extreme musical act WOLD (who have somewhat recently been admired by confessed fans such as Bjork and Matthew Barney) have returned with their most aesthetically powerful release to date. Entitled “Freermasonry”, the new album from the weird, bizarre, and mysterious enigma that hail from the vast desolate prairies of the Canadian wasteland is the band’s most aesthetically powerful to date. Like a raging powerful blizzard that envelopes nothing but darkness and death, the harsh sounds of psychotic hypnosis emanating from “Freermasonry” are almost akin to a haunting alien presence that’s slowly waiting to reveal its true nature upon the feeble mortal coil.

Lyrically, “Freermasonry” presentes WOLD’s deepest and most-thought provoking prose yet; an intriguing and indepth look into WOLD dictator Fortress Crookedjaw’s thesis on religious metaphor and the occult leanings of the S.O.L.

Always polarizing, yet always intriguing, “Freermasonry” is the observation where WOLD take no prisoners and could very well be the most uncompromising WOLD release to date.

 

 

THE ROOTS OF DUBSTEP

Band:MAD PROFESSOR
Album:THE ROOTS OF DUBSTEP
Label:ARIWA
Format:CD
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

Heavy bass lines, solid drums, floating keyboards, flying guitars!!! Clearly this is where the current crop of producers coined the name DUBSTEP for their brand of music Like many musical styles before, and like Christopher Columbus, the discovery is made, whilst looking for something else! There is nothing new about Dubstep. 40 years ago, King Tubbys was experimenting with the then audio technology (1/2 inch ampex machines), and customised MCI desks, tape echoes and spring reverbs. This led to a new era of music...DUB!! And for the first time, the creator was from behind the desk. Amongst the first generation of this musical form was, Lee Perry, Errol Thompson, King Jammys. They inspired the next generation like Scientist and Mad Professor...

The Roots of Dubstep is a new album, using old technology, with 4 old songs, using new technology. Highly enjoyable when sober, it will take you somewhere else, when high!! Strictly Roots!!!

Label:BURNSIDE
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Dance/Electronica

One of NYC’s truest artist and producers, T.H. White emerges with his fourth full length release How Bad do you Want it!? White’s sound interlaces his influences of golden era Hip-Hop, psychedelic 70’s funk rock as well as lush lounge beats. Critics and fans often relate to his unique blending of ultra-modern production infused with his own organic instrumentation.

“White is one of the few beat makers that can lay claim to being a musician first and DJ-Producer by default. Sprinklings of enough genres to satisfy a wide range of music fans.” - Paper Magazine

“This album is brimming with slinky rhythms, low end rumbles and lots of shimmering sheen!” - Time Out

"With such clever and eclectic touches, this throbbing electro-pop shows a gift for titillating, slinky melodies from the club to the breakfast table. White’s got the skills and the songs are energectic.” - Spin
