CAULDRON OF THE WILD

Band:WITCH MOUNTAIN
Album:CAULDRON OF THE WILD
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Portland’s oldest doom metal band, WITCH MOUNTAIN, have had quite the interesting history leading up to the present day. Initially formed in 1997 by guitarist Rob Wrong (Iommi Stubbs, ex-M99) and drummer Nathan Carson (Point Line Plane, Two Ton Boa, Sunn0))) collaborator, etc), the band released heir debut album “…Come The Mountain” to critical acclaim in 2001. The album wouldn’t take long to ultimately go out of print not too long after its release. But between 1998 and 2002 Witch Mountain became a live staple in the Northwest and on the national circuit, touring with Weedeater and Spirit Caravan, and gigging with the likes of Lost Goat, Bongzilla, Goatsnake, Acid King, High on Fire, Orange Goblin, Electric Wizard, YOB, Unsane, EyeHateGod, Alabama Thunderpussy, Clutch, Unida, Solitude Aeturnus, Unorthodox, Sour Vein, Isis, Soilent Green, Karma to Burn, Nebula, Penance, Raging Slab, Warhorse, Agalloch, Thrones, etc, etc. After that, a period of hibernation was in effect. That is until 2009 when WITCH MOUNTAIN would re-surface with an addition to the band, the soulful, soaring, and unparalleled female vocalist Uta Plotkin. Her addition to the fold would make the analogy that WITCH MOUNTAIN were what Black Sabbath would sound like if Janis Joplin fronted them.

In 2010 WITCH MOUNTAIN recorded their sophomore album “South Of Salem” with mega-producer Billy Anderson and the band would release “South Of Salem” themselves on vinyl only and was officially in April of 2011. The record garnered exceptional press as well as serious nods from NPR (which named it the #4 metal album of 2011), Decibel magazine, and beyond. The band would then forge an agreement with Profound Lore, as the label would immediately issue the CD version of “South Of Salem”, to make it more readily available, and prepare for the band’s follow-up full-length album “Cauldron Of The Wild”.

“Cauldron Of The Wild” is easily WITCH MOUNTAIN’s mightiest release to date. and will bring proper recognition and awareness to this veteran American doom metal band.

INTO THE LAIR OF THE SUN GOD

Band:DAWNBRINGER
Album:INTO THE LAIR OF THE SUN GOD
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

DAWNBRINGER were always seen as one of the most underrated American metal bands, heralded by many as the best and most unique American metal band you’ve never heard and at the time, the one band that mastermind Chris Black had been involved in that many people who knew his body of work with the other bands he’s involved in, hadn’t even heard of, even though DAWNBRINGER was the band that Black had been involved in the longest. When Profound Lore released DAWNBRINGER’s “Nucleus” album in 2010, four years after its “In Sickness And In Dreams” predecessor (in which said album was released six years after the band’s second album!), the metal world took notice as DAWNBRINGER finally began getting the recognition they deserved as one of America’s most prominent heavy metal bands as “Nucleus” took on year end reigns on all 2010 best-of lists.

In what will easily be seen as one of the best American heavy metal albums to be released in 2012, “Into The Lair Of The Sun God” continues in the DAWNBRINGER fashion by providing unique epic forward-thinking heavy metal that captures the classic metal spirit of the past, and forges the heavy metal movement forward to the future. An album that’s warmer with tighter performances and ultimately, one that is the most musical DAWNBRINGER album to date. And of course it’s an album that fully opposes the novelty poser heavy metal bands of the modern day.

 

 

THE TIME LORD

Band:PAGAN ALTAR
Album:THE TIME LORD
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

PAGAN ALTAR is a legendary dark doom metal band hailing from UK, led by Terry (vocals) and Alan (guitar) Jones. Formed back in the late 70s, PAGAN ALTAR wasn’t able to gain the success they deserved during the NWOBHM explosion, being their proposal quite out of the Metal classic schemes of those days. The band was put on hiatus. Nevertheless the cult-status of the band only grew stronger with time, and definitely exploded in 1998 with the official re-release of “Volume I”, the only album recorded by the band at that time and that had never seen the light, except as a bootlegged tape. The release brought interest on the band and enthusiasm in the same band-leading members. Then the reformed Pagan Altar recorded and released two more full-length albums, “Lords of Hypocrisy” and “Mythical and Magical” in 2004 and 2006 respectively and are on the verge of releasing their new album “Never Quite Dead” (a title that quite sums up their career) in the second half of 2012.

“Time Lord” collects material written and recorded around 1978 and 1979 in different studios and later saved for posterity on cassette format (thus the “original” sound quality of this release). So far it has been released only on vinyl format, originally by I HATE RECORDS in 2004, and later in 2011 by BURIED BY TIME AND DUST. Both editions were quickly sold out.

 

 

WISH UPON A BLACKSTAR

Band:CELLDWELLER
Album:WISH UPON A BLACKSTAR
Label:FIXT
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Wish Upon A Blackstar, the sophomore Celldweller album, is here. The product of six years of writing, demoing, and refining, Wish Upon A Blackstar is a masterwork by a master artist: Klayton. Sixteen songs seamlessly blend genres from electro and dubstep to rock and orchestral with an intricacy and precision seldom heard in today's music. But it's not all just studio wizardry and digital complexity; Klayton brings his deeply honed songwriting ability to bear, making Wish Upon A Blackstar an album that will long outlast its contemporaries. Truly epic in scope and execution, Wish Upon A Blackstar will not only leave a lasting mark on the always-changing landscape of electronic music, but will also stand steadfast as a remarkable statement of artistic virtue in a sea of disposable trends.

“Klayton (Celldweller) has ruthlessly forged a fantastic metal-infused dubstep sound tainted with unholy guitar riffs and haunting, glitchy, and highly nostalgic melodic work. When accompanied by a growling and slightly robotic lead synth capable of shredding the very fabric of reality, nothing can stand in the way of Celldweller.” - Dubstep.net

 

 

BLUE STAHLI

Band:BLUE STAHLI
Album:BLUE STAHLI
Label:FIXT
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Blue Stahli arrives at your party in suave style with a bombshell on each arm, martini in hand, but by night's end he will be throwing burning couches into your pool. Such is the one-two punch of the debut Blue Stahli album - ten tracks of cathartically vengeful alternative rock with a streak of Ray-Ban-sporting electro-funk that gives it a sexiness punk never had. Stahli doesn't shy away from playing with the reigning dance styles of our day but each track retains the distinct Stahli flavor that wrenches your head open, climbs in, and uses your brainy bits to pantomime Pete Townsend's entire history of guitarsmashing. With powerful vocal hooks and a knack for hybridizing genres, Blue Stahli is an album aimed squarely at the front lines of alternative music.

"The all encompassing vocal range combined with anthemic songs and well thought out lyrics has made this one of the best debut albums I have heard in a long time, and will be a part of my music collection for a long time." -Coma Music Magazine

 

 

BEAT BOYS

Band:BEAT BOYS
Album:BEAT BOYS
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

“Caetano called the Beat Boys, an Argentinean group settled in São Paulo who had been inspired by the Beatles, to accompany him in ‘Alegria, Alegria.’ That, in fact marked the beginning of the Tropicalista thing.” —Gilberto Gil

Along with Os Mutantes, the Beat Boys represented the most radical element in Brazilian rock: their name, clothes, hair—and intense fuzz guitar raves—were all fierce indicators of a rebel spirit, and this in a dangerous time for such self-expression. The simple truth: The Beat Boys were at the very epicenter of the cultural revolution that convulsed Brazil during the late 1960’s, that movement of rupture, that bringing together of electricity and avant-garde erudition that has come to be known as “Tropicália.” They backed Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil for their defining moments as artists—both live, and in the studio on tracks which became the opening Tropicalist salvo (a rare EP). So, what were this group of Argentine rock musicians doing in the forefront of all things outrageous in Brazil? More to the point, why is it that few people, even among the Brazilian music cognoscenti, have heard of them? One explanation must be that the band were essentially outsiders to the Brazilian music scene. As unlikely as it was for them to penetrate the inner circles of Brazilian elite musicians (it was unlikely), it was even more unlikely that they would remain there once their closest friends, Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, were exiled from Brazil. This disc includes the Beat Boys entire output under their own name: their sole album—an exercise in what one might call “controlled Tropicália”, laden with torrid psychedelic moments (1968), as well as a rare singles track from the same year. A 20- page booklet includes lyrics, and an exploration of the Beat Boys’ fascinating story.

 

 

MEXICO

Band:ERGO SUM
Album:MEXICO
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Along with the two records by Nurse With Wound favorites Moving Gelatine Plates, Ergo Sum’s weird and wonderful album “Mexico” is an unusual portal into the intense creativity of early 1970’s French music. True, the bands are not musically similar; yet these three albums are distinguished not only by their instrumental richness, but by their unceasing sense of adventure. We’d go so far to say that Ergo Sum presents one of the most distinctive experiences in a rock idiom (apart from Zeuhl music juggernaut Magma) to ever come from France. The band’s one and only album (1971) features the unique voice of Lionel Ledissez—his guttural sort-of-English language delivery described as being “somewhere between Family’s Roger Chapman and a drunken Champs-Elysees taxi driver,” although more sober comparisons to Tim and/or Jeff Buckley have also been made. The compositions develop at a relaxed pace; incredible jazz-inflected guitar, flute, piano and droning violin swirl around the vocals, and keep one submerged in, yet attentive to the intimate mood. Tracks full of instrumental richness—they simmer, rather than blaze, which makes the rewards ever so great for patient listeners. Bonus tracks include the superb ‘All’s So Comic,’ one of the highlights of the “Puissance 13+2” Thélème label anthology, as well as both sides of Ergo Sum’s musically relevant single from 1972. A fulsome 28-page booklet includes band history, photos, lyrics, and a contemporary 1971 review from Superhebdo magazine. A three o-clock in the morning, slow burn album if ever there was one.

 

 

BACK HOME; THE LOST 1975 SESSIONS

Band:OPA
Album:BACK HOME; THE LOST 1975 SESSIONS
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

This disc is a departure from the other reissues in our Uruguayan music series. It’s not remotely in a psychedelic or rock idiom; it was not released on the mighty Sondor label. Yet when given the opportunity to reissue these “lost” sessions, we did not hesitate for a moment. This music is funky and jazzy, groovy and urban, even sounding like Fela (on ‘Goldenwings’ at least); it has the sunny feel of sweltering days on South American beaches, but it also has a heavy dose of the grittiness of mid 1970’s New York City. There are connections to the great bands of Uruguay, of course: both Fattoruso brothers, so successful with their beat band Los Shakers, greatly admired the work of the much less successful Eduardo Mateo, Ruben Rada and their band El Kinto. Opa had their own style, and the critical acclaim for their recorded legacy would soon eclipse on an international level that of anything else from their native land.

After coming to NYC in 1969, a regular club gig led to Opa becoming backing band for Brazilian percussionist Airto Moreira (Weather Report/Return to Forever); they toured the USA, working on a sound that resulted in the “Fingers” album for the CTI label (1973), Airto’s most successful record. Things looked grim when Flora Purim, Airto’s wife and singer of the band, was sentenced to two years in prison for drug possession. But drummer and producer Larry Rosen invited Opa to record in his small home studio. They recorded nine demos with Rosen during 1975 (all but one of the tracks that give this reissue a reason to exist, the other being the band’s first demo recording from 1972). Included are versions of songs which would later be re-recorded the following year for Opa’s debut album for Milestone Records. Rhythm-laden tracks that range from the heavily funkified to chilled out, shimmering, and trance-inducing. A 16-page booklet includes band history and photos.

 

 

OPHIUCUS

Band:OPHIUCUS
Album:OPHIUCUS
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Ophiucus may be the name of an obscure constellation, but it's also the name of a French band that recorded an exceptional album in 1972 for the Barclay label. All the members of the band had already enjoyed ample success in music before musician/actor Emmanuel Booz brought them together in 1971: Jean-Pierre Pouret was a well-known session-man for Sylvie Vartan; brothers Alain and Bernard Labacci released albums as Tom & Jerry, and supported Jimi Hendrix for a TV appearance; Michel Bonnecarrere had founded the band Zoo (one of Andy Votel from the B-Music label’s favorites), and was one of the composers, arrangers and musicians for that group’s first two albums. Apropos of the period, the band members decided to live together as a small family in Flagy, a small town in France, where they lived a happy life, and wrote the tracks which adorn this reissue. The ambitious “Ophiucus” album somehow manages to blend grungy psychedelic rock, acoustic blues, and densely orchestrated French pop/psych (in an Ilous & Decuyper vein) into an impressive and cohesive whole. Sandy Spencer, cellist and member of Mormos contributed wonderful playing on ‘Ne cherche plus’ and ‘Inachevée.’ This reissue includes the original album plus eight bonus tracks in English meant to be the basis of an international album that was never issued. A fulsome 28-page booklet includes band history and commentaries on the songs written by Ophiucus, photos, lyrics (French and English), and a contemporary review.

 

 

CHEQUERED

Band:CHUBBY CHECKER
Album:CHEQUERED
Label:Sunbeam
Format:LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Like several other icons of early 60s pop, by the end of the decade Chubby Checker was eager to update his sound and message. The result was this enigmatic set of raw, soulful, psych-tinged ballads and rockers. Overseen by Jimi Hendrix ‘s early producer Ed Chalpin, it was released in the UK only in 1971,complete with background notes and a stupendous bonus track. 

Lost classic - Long-awaited official reissue - Fully remastered LP.

WE TRAVEL THE SPACEWAYS

Band:NRBQ
Album:WE TRAVEL THE SPACEWAYS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

"NRBQ follows up Keep This Love Goin’, their critically-acclaimed 2011 CD, with a powerful and propulsive new live recording. The dozen songs, recorded last spring, showcase everything we love about NRBQ – energy, musicianship, playfulness, swing, and their brilliant mix of rock, jazz, pop, and who-knows-what. There are originals spanning NRBQ’s 40-plus-year career, Q-takes on Thelonious Monk and Piano Red and, as always, unexpected arrangements of tunes we think we may have heard before but aren’t sure where. Present is former NRBQ drummer Tom Ardolino, who passed away early this year. He was on hand for this show, as he often was in recent years, and is showcased on four tracks, side-by-side with Conrad Choucroun, sounding “like a choir of drummers” according to WFMU’s Bob Brainen who was in the audience that night. Also joining the band is saxophonist Klem Klimek.

 

 

PLEASURE AND PAIN

Band:CHRIS WATSON
Album:PLEASURE AND PAIN
Label:BURNSIDE

Genre:Blues

After his first studio release, Just For Show, Chris was named the “Future of the Blues” by the Blues Underground Network and has been billed with some of the greats such as BB King, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Robert Cray, and the list goes on. 

“Unlike a lot of young players more interested in being just for show, Watson proves on this collection of originals that he knows it’s not all about him and his guitar. Sure there’s guitar here but he’s smart enough to step back and let the groove itself step into the spotlight. ” — Blue Lisa, Southwest Blues Magazine

 

 

IN GOOD COMPANY

Band:BILL EVANS
Album:IN GOOD COMPANY
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Bluegrass

Banjo powerhouse and Banjo for Dummies author Bill Evans' In Good Company features an all star cast headlined by the Infamous Stringdusters, Tim O'Brien, Joy Kills Sorrow, David Grier, Stuart Duncan, Rob Ickes, Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Laurie Lewis and many more. This auspicious line-up performs five Evans compositions, a four song, ten-minute Beatles medley and songs pairing Bill with The Infamous Stringdusters (performing John Martyn's Walk to the Water), Joy Kills Sorrow (performing Sarah Siskind's On and On) and Tim O'Brien (performing Follow the Drinking Gourd). The sonic landscape moves from hard-driving bluegrass to expansive new acoustic sounds.

"Bill Evans has outdone himself with this, his latest project. The picking, singing, tune writing and production values are on a ridiculously high level. Bill's ideas are immensely satisfying and fresh. The supporting cast burns up the musical pavement and if there's any justice, Grammy voters will take note!" Tony Trischka

 

 

DUNE

Band:OTTMAR LIEBERT AND LUNA NEGRA
Album:DUNE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:world/new age

Dune contains the haunting southwest border-country flamenco music Ottmar and his band Luna Negra are famous for. This isn't old school Flamenco. Acoustic guitar mixes with electric, gypsy accordion, electric bass, funky drumboxing and percussion. There's no rain in this music, just poetic sunshine at midnight. “I wanted to play guitar melodies that sounded sung”, says Ottmar. “For some reason I kept thinking about old jazz and pop crooners. So I sang almost every melody first and then figured out how to play it on guitar. Perhaps it’s guitar anti-shredding!” What better analogy than Dune to describe Ottmar’s passion for melody… an ever-changing landscape.

Screaming Trees/ Seattle drummer and composer Barrett Martin and his group return with their 5th album in 8 years titled, Artifact. Produced by legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Screaming Trees), Artifact is by far the band's best and most adventurous album to date. The album showcases a perfect rhythmic fusion of Barrett's jazz-rock world beats and the band's liberal use of world music style, exotic melodies, and psychedelic jazz. Now grown into a septet made up of Seattle's top jazz musicians, "The BMG" also features Hindustani vocalist Mehnaz Hoosein, from Mumbai, India. The band will be playing dates throughout the US and Europe throughout the summer and fall of 2012 in support of Artifact, as well as their previous 4 albums.

 

 

FOR THE LOVE OF THUGS AND FOOLS

Band:BIBLE OF THE DEVIL
Album:FOR THE LOVE OF THUGS AND FOOLS
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Bible of the Devil is a four-piece high-intensity Rock n' Roll Metal band from Chicago, Illinois. With numerous albums and 7" singles to their credit, the band has carved themselves quite a niche in the heavy rock underground over the past 13 years as carriers of the flame of classic, loud, hook-filled guitar rock, yet with their own modern interpretation. The band has toured the United States and mainland Europe extensively during this period, and continue to do so in 2012, whether or not Mayan predictions of an apocalypse prove to be true.

For the Love of Thugs and Fools, Bible of the Devil's eagerly anticipated follow-up to their 2008 release, Freedom Metal, is a collection of raging Rock n' Roll songs that encapsulate the band's saga musically and personally over the years since the last full-length. Returning to Phantom Manor studios in Chicago to work with engineer Mike Lust, who has engineered numerous BOTD recordings in the past, the band sought to emphasize their trademark bludgeoning two-guitar attack and mammoth hooks with an increased attention to soaring, anthemic vocals.

DARK AGES

Band:BISON B.C.
Album:DARK AGES
Label:WAR ON MUSIC
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Brooding, dark, and unreasonably heavy. A genre expanding colossal offering from the unrivaled titans of precision sludge metal. Everything that you could guess about BISON B.C.'s music from their name is probably true. It can shift a plodding stomp into a breakneck stampede with shocking agility, it's well versed in stone age metal and it thrives on a whole lot of grass. Dark Ages isn't math-rock, but Bison b.c. change progressions like someone auditioning for music college. "Fear Cave" blitzes a heavy trudge into hypersonic hardcore before crashing into something that sounds like your speakers failing. Premiere track "Stressed Elephant" might be about the mightiest mammal fretting over losing its place in the animal kingdom.

For fans of High On Fire, Mastodon, Melvins, Kvelertak, Baroness - Limited Pressing Gatefold LP

PROCESSION

Band:DESIDERII MAGINIS
Album:PROCESSION
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

"Procession" heralds the reawakening of the acclaimed swedish dark ambient project Desiderii Marginis, an album that sounds at the same time warmingly familiar and inspiringly new. While Desiderii Marginis is perhaps not as prolific as some other acts, it's "quality over quantity" motto always makes it well worth the wait and this is certainly no exception. The eight pieces that make up this new album stand firmly on their own, and yet form an even more remarkable whole. Johan Levin envokes a grand soundscape, beneath the faded remnants of the celestial spheres where timbres have space to grow, evolve and reflect off each other, a sombre, melancholic thoughtfullness, a calm to dwell in, and long back to. The atmosphere of the album is not that of solid darkness, or an abyss opening beneath you, but rather a wintery pale, grey dusk casting long, sweeping shadows. A haze that makes you uncertain if it’s really getting lighter or darker. We're honored to welcome Johan Levin's long standing project to the ever expanding Cyclic Law family. Edition of 1000 copies in 6 panel Digipack.

 

 

SOMNIA

Band:SHRINE
Album:SOMNIA
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

It's with great pleasure that we present you the new album from Bulgaria's Shrine. Somnia is a complex audio metaphor that can be interpreted as an aural equivalent of a "low level" lucid dreamstate - a dream in which the dreamer is not fully aware he is dreaming but is still having the ability to control the dream. Based on processing of multiple sound sources ranging from audio synthesis, acoustic instruments and field recordings, the album explores several imaginary realities immersing you into a lucid-like experience through sound. Almost an hour long, it contains 8 thematically independent compositions representing an extended blend of ambient, acoustic music and nature sounds. Use it as a sound guide to lucid dreaming. Edition of 600 copies in 6 panel Digipack.

Label:METAL POSTCARD
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

THE THIRD ALBUM FROM THE GODFATHERS OF THE SYDNEY ELECTRONIC MUSIC SECENE. APE DELAY IS INSPIRED BY THE ORIGINAL EUROPEAN MINIMAL WAVE POP SCENE OF THE 1980’S AND 1990’S

"The second album from Sydney’s Ollo, The If If, doesn’t disappoint; it’s a strange and imaginative collection of anti-pop songs that uses simple, melodic electronica to create trance-like soundscapes. ...an eerie and well crafted musical excursion where you never quite know where you’re heading, or where you’ve just been." [Rolling Stone]

"Like an Aussie Beta Band with a touch of the kind of playful sound of acts like Department of Eagles, Errors and Tunng. Very promising." [Pure Groove :: UK]

 

 

LADY PHERES

Band:STEVE MORELL AND MONICA POKORNA
Album:LADY PHERES
Label:PALE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL
Format:VINYL
Genre:Avant-Garde

“Lady Pheres” is like the black pearl of Steve Morell´s upcoming album “The Life And Death Of Jimmy Pheres And His Rise From The Underworld“. It is as seducing as a melody played by a music box over and over again, possibly somewhere deep beneath the surface of the earth. With a hint of pop and its avant-garde elements the song has the potential to turn into one of the most romantic singles in decades.

Feat. Musicians from Goldfish, Einstürzende Neubauten, Adam & The Ants and Noblesse Oblige

BEHAVIOUR OF THE BIRDS

Band:RANDY TWIGG
Album:BEHAVIOUR OF THE BIRDS
Label:PALE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Hitting below the belt with catchy, disjointed riffs, Canadian Randy Twigg restores the simple beauty of heavy rock and roll. Originating from the rock and punk scene of Toronto, she has been quickly adopted by Berlin, one of the most influential creative capitals of the world. Currently based there, she has thoroughly colluded and conspired a fresh sound in the local music scene. Before relocating to Europe Twigg was a driving force behind the electro metal duo, Fuck Puppets (BugEyed Records), but has since moved to the top of Berlin's unique underground music scene with her no holds barred power rock. Flight cases moving in and out of airports, Twigg has toured as a solo artist as well as a bass player with the American band, Mt. Sims, with French artist, Mell, collaborating and playing live with Kid Congo Powers (Gun Club, The Cramps) and Tobi Dammit (Iggy Pop, Jessie Evans). Merging fuzzed out bass guitar, synthesizers, and live drums, she began a natural progression into the world of raw instrumentation. Now she operates on stage with one bass and one voice accompanied only by Alexis Gaffuri on drums. Twigg has masterminded a live sound so massive it is shocking to be produced by only 2 instruments.

 

 

SANDRO CODAZZI

Band:SANDRO CODAZZI
Album:SANDRO CODAZZI
Label:PALE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Put in your music shaker two fingers of the best italo disco vibes mixed with good old spacey analogue synth on the rocks. Shake it to a steady 4/4 beat. Now pour it in your glass, add a bittersweet lime of new wave melancholy, siphon it all with shining sparkles of 8 bit soda and you’ll get a imaginary foretaste of Sandro Codazzi’s stunning debut album. A ten tracks prodigy made for driving through and beyond Electro-pop Galaxy’s time frontiers and space boundaries. Sandro Codazzi is the ultimate synth pop virtuoso and a true cult figure for the growing Spaghetti electro underground scene aficionados. After his beginnings as dark wave bass player for several small bands he focused his composition talent on synthesizers, inspired by the German pioneers of the Seventies, the Italo disco heroes of the Eighties and the most audacious techno acts of the following decade. Old analogue machines, robotic vocoders and Commodore 64 music softwares became key ingredients in his musical approach.

 

 

THE TREACHERY OF THINGS

Band:A THOUSAND FUEGOS
Album:THE TREACHERY OF THINGS
Label:Seayou
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Matthias Peyker’s alias A Thousand Fuegos’ electronic style is neither hip nor urban. It is as rural as the place “The Treachery Of Things” has been recorded at: an abandoned house at the foot of the ‘Affenberg’ in the picturesque countryside of southern Austria. Beats, loops and spacey synths mirror the feeling of rural isolation and introspectiveness and lay the foundation for the lyrical examination of the “Treachery Of Things”: the notion that we can never grasp the true identity of the things around us so that we have to set them free. “The Treachery Of Things” is a unique mix of pop, electronic and experimental music that’s full of melody and cold beats hammered into distinct arrangements.

 

 

DROP YOUR SOUL

Label:Seayou
Format:CDEP

It was recorded in the couple’s idiosyncratic home studio in Berlin using analogue synthesizers/drum machines and digital recording equipment as it aims to sonically and lyrically capture the most elusive everyday moments. The Artist is confirmed for LONDON FIELD DAY FESTIVAL 2012

 

 

SOFT AIRPLANE

Band:CHAD VANGAALEN
Album:SOFT AIRPLANE
Label:ALTIN VILLAGE AND MINE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

"Retreating a bit from the wide-ranging experimentation of 2007's Skelliconnection, Canadian singer-songwriter Chad VanGaalen favors a low-key form of indie folk-rock on his third album. Featuring his most direct and immediately appealing set of pop songs yet, with none of the brief noise interludes that decorated his first two albums, Soft Airplane features impressively varied tunes like the Beck-like rocker "Poisonous Heads" and the pretty but unsettling falsetto reverie "Molten Light." This is VanGaalen's most accomplished and intriguing album so far" - Hmv

EU vinyl release for this Sub Pop album - Comes in Gatefold Sleeved Vinyl for the first time with drawings by Chad VanGaalen on the inside.

EIGENGIFT

Band:TANNHAUSER STERBEN AND DAS TOD
Album:EIGENGIFT
Label:ALTIN VILLAGE AND MINE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Drone/Ambient

After several offerings on their own Editionmutation imprint, the Berlin duo Tannhäuser Sterben & das Tod, comprised of Thomas Mahmoud (ex- VON SPAR) and Gerald Mandl (MEDIENGRUPPE TELEKOMMANDER), have completed their first full length Eigengift for Altin Village & Mine Records. Tannhäuser Sterben & das Tod‘s cut-ups and layering results in a diverse yet stunningly coherent album that with its compositional playfulness and focus on rhythmic, ritualistic delivery plunges into the space. We are politely shown, and then left to the aesthetic potential that is to be unfolded where there is no contradiction between vocal meditations and reggaeton guitars, field recordings and anthemic choruses: an uncannily familiar place. 

LP comes with MP3 Download Code

 

 

THE KENYA SESSIONS

Band:SVEN KACIREK
Album:THE KENYA SESSIONS
Label:ALTIN VILLAGE AND MINE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Sven Kacirek studied drums and marimba at the conservatory in Arnhem/NL, at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg and at the Drummers Collective in New York City. Besides his cooperation with musicians and bands like Hauschka, F.S. Blumm, Jan Dvorak, Jan Plewka, Martin Bisi, Alexander Schubert and Uwe Haas, Sven has composed and performed music for modern dance theatre pieces and contemporary ballet. He worked with choreographers like Angela Guerreiro, Filip van Huffel, Antje Pfundtner, Johnny Lloyd among others. In 2009 Sven Kacirek composed the soundtrack of the movie “Five Ways to Dario” by Dario Aguirre. This is the first time „The Kenya Sessions“ will be available on Vinyl, licensed from the german label Pingipung. For „The Kenya Sessions“, Sven Kacirek traveled through Kenya, equipped with loads of microphones. A pretty solid idea. On „The Kenya Sessions“ we find recordings of kenyan singers and musicians carefully composed to a flow of 15 pieces mixed with Percussion-, Marimba- and Piano-elements. What strikes most while listening is the outstanding quality of the recordings and the accuracy of Sven‘s work. It‘s hard to tell which elemnts are added via overdub and what was recorded in Kenya which results in a very organic listening experience. That‘s when a „drumming kenyan community‘s welcome ceremony“ gently forms into the track „Dear Anastasia“ sung by 80 year old kenyan women Ogoya Nengo. Sven‘s sensitivity for „the gentle tone“ which could cast a spell on the listener already on „The Palmin Sessions“, gets lifted to a whole new level on this kenyan cooperation ...

First time on vinyl - includes Vinyl-Only Bonus Track “Kayamba Fever”

 

 

SCIENCE PINATA

Band:PTTRNS
Album:SCIENCE PINATA
Label:ALTIN VILLAGE AND MINE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Post Punk

PTTRNS are three charming multi-instrumentalists who share a doorbell in Cologne, Germany and who know exactly what they’re doing. Their idea of music isn’t restricted to the sheer production of sound, but instead contains an entire aesthetics, a claim to nothing less than the participation of everyone, the breaking down of distance and the orchestration of a concert as a communal performance – everyone plays everything. After 32 months, two cassette tapes and three vinyl singles, „Science Piñata“ is the first PTTRNS album, produced by Guido Lucas, mastered by Josh Bonati (Aa) and nicely packaged by Our Polite Society. But most of all, „Science Piñata“ is a successful documentation of their restlessness and energy, in its organic immediacy far away from a fixation on technique while still skillful and elaborate. An outstanding pop-sensibility, clearly informed by disco and afrobeat, is worked to give polyrhythmic post-punk-layers their soul back and to create something genuinely new and sincere in the process. The ‚thinking (wo)man’s dance album’, if you will.

 

 

ATLANTIC OCEAN BLUES

Band:BARR
Album:ATLANTIC OCEAN BLUES
Label:SAKUNTALA
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

"Atlantic Ocean Blues" is a tribute to the sea, the sun, space and the music that's coloured by these elements. It has been four years since "Skogsbo Is The Place", BARR's latest effort that was recorded in a derelict cottage owned by a relative. It's BARR's time to step out of that cottage, to find their way into the forest and in the studio. Into a musical world that the band always dreamed of.

"Atlantic Ocean Blues" is in addition to an constant evolving band also a homage to the forest, to the darkness and to folk psychadelia. A true masterpiece and a story about a bands step into wilderness and unknown grounds. And they sure master it.

In many ways "Aged to Perfection" picks up where "We Came too Late" left off with its focus on great tunes, but with the bands initial space rock fundament added to the package. The band always strives for full artistic freedom and have once again written, recorded, mixed and produced the album all by themselves.

Linköpings daily news recently wrote - "ODYSSEY's performances are probably the most energetic and violent in Sweden at the moment, and definetly worth that detour to witness..."

Available as a collector’s edition cd featuring an enhanced sound quality, this is sure to be a prized possession for connoisseurs of unconventional music anywhere. The subtitle of this collection reveals already how there is some kind of fitting well together amount of bands in Russia who have some root in psychedelia. The main title “TripWave” in facts describes it a bit in what sense or direction. Almost any of these of these bands show aspects of a late night trippy trance-related jammed way of playing, with all the time of the world , while their roots are related or rooted in post-rock song styles, an alternative wave of shoegazed rock.

“An ultra-intense blast of industrial metal performed by enslaved heavy machinery, and at it's most intense, sounds like a symphony of hellish steel presses and tank-tread drum machine rhythms..." -Crucial Blast

"Like Godflesh meets The Bug meets Flying Lotus." – MSN Meta

l “This grinding, overdriven track has, in fact, inspired us to formally, uh, dub Author & Punisher’s music “mechadoom.” Listen at your own peril, mortals!” – Decibel Magazine

Author & Punisher is an industrial doom metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines are designed to require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding doom influenced sounds that are created. Author & Punisher has performed and shown these machines in festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad extensively. His new record, focused primarily on the newer Dub Machines, entitled “Ursus Americanus”, will be his first release on Seventh Rule.

INTERNAL AFFAIRS

Band:NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA
Album:INTERNAL AFFAIRS
Label:CORONER
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

"The Night Flight Orchestra" started like so many others as an innocent yet serious drunken idea when Björn Strid (Soilwork) and David Andersson (Mean Streak, Soilwork session player) were on the road together somewhere in North America in 2007. Björn and David were bonding over what they considered "classic" or not, from rock'n'roll conspiracies to being arrested in a lobby with nothing but leather pants on. All those scenarios, fictional or real, needed a soundtrack. They also came to think that whether you're on a metal tour or not, a lot of classic rock songs say it all and can really lend you a helping hand and make you forget about everything, especially when in motion or travelling. The classic escape. The never-ending road trip. The transatlantic night flight. It may sound simple and naive but what it all comes down to is that we all need that soundtrack to feel extra special, whether you have been arrested in a lobby or not. It didn't take long before bass player Sharlee D'Angelo (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars) joined forces as well as keyboard player Richard Larsson (Von Benzo) and drummer Jonas Källsbäck (Mean Streak). The goal was to reclaim the 70's/early 80's sense for classic melody, the forgotten recipe to a timeless song, preferably a song mentioning a city, street name or an exhilarating alcoholic beverage. Anything that will have you spitting out the word "classic". 

Björn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork) on vocals , Sharlee D'Angelo (Arch Enemy) on bass. • Original project by very known metal artists who challenge themselves in a different music genre, not another metal side-project.

FROM WISDOM TO HATE

Band:GORGUTS
Album:FROM WISDOM TO HATE
Label:WAR ON MUSIC
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Death Metal

Groundbreaking Jazz-blasted techincal death metal. In sound and style, FWTH is actually more predecessor than successor to the previous release "Obscura". Less frenetic, more focused and more precise in its ultimate goal. Where "Obscura" shot at you from a thousand different directions at once, this album hits you square between the eyes with one single thread of light. Still remaining are the guitar psychoscrapes from Luc Lemay and newly-acquired axeman Daniel Mongrain (VOIVOD, MARTYR), but they have been more skilfully interspersed between the bodies of the main riffs. A painfully underrated album, FWTH is perfect combination of the early traditional Gorguts records, and the avant garde mania of Obscura 

Gorguts are soon to perform select dates as direct support on the upcoming ‘Chuck Shuldiner Tribute Tour’

Never before released on vinyl • Limited Pressing!!!

 

 

OBSCURA

Band:GORGUTS
Album:OBSCURA
Label:WAR ON MUSIC
Format:VINYL LP

Relentless, punishing & highly evolved death metal compositions which compel repeated listens and command respect. A definite but logical departure from their earlier more traditional RoadRunner offerings, Obscura sees the band return after 5 years with a new lineup and a much more original, innovative and extreme approach to metal. Obscura is technical, jarring, quite often harsh and discordant, yet maintains a seamless flow and includes elements of disciplined groove and sophisticated harmony. It is quite rightly regarded as a groundbreaking and pioneering work of extreme metal. Over an hour long, this unrivalled monsterous onslaught comes to vinyl for the first time ever - Double Gatefold LP, 180g limited pressing on classic black wax

Never before released on vinyl • Limited Pressing • 180g Vinyl • Gatefold Sleeve!

Second H. Sam is a solo project by Samuele Gottardello. In less than a year of live shows he amazed the audience with his minimal approach to the music, inspired by glowing romantic scenarios, seen through psychedelic and lo-fi glasses. In his music you can find a little of Johnny Cash, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, Fred Neil, Nick Cave, Lee Hazlewood, Fabrizio De Andrè, Daniel Johnston, Syd Barret, Beck e Thurstone Moore. They say about him: "A blues author from the age of the computers, a Muddy Waters with a MIDi keyboard, a Daniel Johnston without obesity and ADHD syndrome. Reverbered semi acoustic guitar with vocal sinking in a sea of tape-echoes". The four songs from this debut EP were recorded at the “Outside Inside” in Montebelluna, with the artistic production of Emanuele "Nene" Baratto from the Movie Star Junkies. Sam is the singer of the Hormonas from Venezia and the Buzz Aldrin from Bologna. He was also the singer of the John Woo, a punk wave band from the 2000s.

GAREEDA

Band:GAREEDA
Album:GAREEDA
Label:WASTED STATE
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Formed in the first quarter of 2010 following turbulent times in not just the local music scene, but the UK, Gareeda formed over a mutual taste in music, principles and methods of consuming bourbon.

The original line-up of Stu Gordon, Tommy Concrete, Michael Branagh & Toni Martone quickly entered the studio and started writing the first album. Following an offer to join The Exploited as guitarist, lyricist and singer Tommy had to step aside due to touring commitments. Following a search of replacements, Gareeda recruited Stu Lillis to take the mic, bringing his own take on Tommy’s outstanding lyrics.

Mixing all the best bits from blues, metal, rock and roll and booze, Gareeda’s sound is unforgettable. This is a band that is here to stay. And although, the time from inception to public unveiling has been longer than other bands, it proves the band’s intent and dedication.
