Aethenor

Hazel

ON SALE $19.99 Vinyl: $13.39 Buy

Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release, the fifth album from Æthenor, the group of eclectic travelers that includes Stephen O'Malley (SunnO))), KTL), Daniel O'Sullivan (Ulver, This is Not This Heat, Grumbling Fur, etc), Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver), and Steve Noble (Brötzmann Trio, N.E.W.). Together they bring their considerable pedigrees into play with unexpected and original results. Contradicting expectations of a massive blow-out of sound, everyone plays with remarkable, effective restraint. Atmospheric and layered, this release features bits and pieces of identifiable rock-moves peeking out from under a thick blanket of hard-to-identify drift. Based on live recordings made on a lengthy tour of Italy in 2010, Hazel has been extensively edited and supplemented, but without losing the elemental sound of a group playing live together. Though there's plenty of weird ambient sound to be heard, this isn't a sound effects/pedalboard record. Like the previous en Form for Bla, Noble's drums anchor the music with spare and considered playing, sometimes lashing out with abstract punctuation, and other times laying out a Can-like groove. O'Malley's guitar is also restrained, providing a bed for O'Sullivan's constantly morphing Rhodes, synths and electronic effects. Kristoffer Rygg contributes a rousing vocal incantation to "Ermanna" and peppers the mix with ghostly modular details. Æthenor's catalog continues to be not like anything else out there right now. Sleeve designed by Stephen O'Malley.

Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Arbouretum has been called "the best of the millennial classic rock bands, a guitar fuzzed powerhouse." The band, founded by guitarist and vocalist Dave Heumann, effortlessly weaves it's melodies and guitar solos with the often hypnotic rhythms of bassist Corey Allender and drummer Brian Carey around the deliberate keyboard of Matthew Pierce to lift the vocals. The results are a full sound delivered with a striking sense of intimacy. Throughout their time together, the Baltimore-based band have been praised for their ability to weave elaborate vocal lines, and guitar solos that often unravel into extended improvisation, but never with as much finesse as on Song of the Rose. In less practiced hands, these ideas could easily fall into contrivance, but on Song of the Rose, Arbouretum use these elements to perfect their craft of storytelling in song, both lyrically and sonically. Arbouretum recorded Song of the Rose with Steve Wright at Wrightway Studios. While previous records were recorded in a matter of days, Song of the Rose took weeks. Attention to production details augment their time-tested emphasis on capturing the energy of performance. Song of the Rose is the first time the band has mixed with Kyle Spence at his studios in Athens, GA (Kurt Vile, Luke Roberts, Harvey Milk). At the root of the songs and compositions on Song of the Rose is the concept of balance. As is true for the movements of Tai Chi, of which Dave Heumann is an avid practitioner, each motion both musical and lyrical has an equal but opposite motion, that works together harmoniously. "Woke Up On The Move" pores over nature s beauty as much as it heeds the warning of humankind s destructive potential. The variations that result from the constant push and pull throughout Song of the Rose make Arbouretum's music as arresting as it is thoughtful. The lyrical imagery makes it masterful. Arbouretum's lyrics explore elements of philosophy, mysticism, redemption, and the implications of human progress. Songs are written in poetic form as Heumann, Arbouretum's lyricist, prefers stories remain abstract and open rather than a more typical storytelling format, all within a more traditional song structure. Titular track "Song of the Rose" completes a trilogy of songs from past records, calling back to "Song of the Nile" and "Song of the Pearl," which have their roots in examining Taoist and Gnostic mythic traditions. Fittingly "Rose" is also a nod to Heumann's ancestor Richard Lovelace, a 17th century poet who penned "The Rose." The driving "Absolution Song," featuring the albums only instrumental guest appearance by Drums of Life, is a contemplation of the idea of writing and thereby absolving oneself of all wrongdoings, through the creative act, in this case, using poetic imagery. Arbouretum music takes these philosophical ideas and transforms them into a sonic experience that is at once contemplative and emotionally affecting.

WE is the new album from Canadian rock band Arcade Fire. This is the sixth Arcade Fire studio album, and is made up of seven songs that speak to this moment with unique directness. Written, recorded, and released during a critical historical juncture, they are divided into two distinct sides, I and WE. If the I side of the record evokes and embodies our holed-up anxiety and lack of physical connection, the WE side captures the excitement of new possibilities and the elevating thrill of committing to one another socially and personally. Produced by Nigel Godrich, Win Butler & Rgine Chassagne, WE is a 40 minute epic as much about the forces that threaten to pull us away from the people we love, as it is inspired by the urgent need to overcome them.

Limited 180gm clear vinyl LP pressing including digital download. 2018 release. Almost since Beach Slang came into being, bandleader James Alex has taken to performing his group's heartfelt anthems as more intimate solo renditions. Appropriately dubbed Quiet Slang, these alternate reality versions of Beach Slang's music have now simultaneously been stripped down and fleshed out in the studio to include piano and cello. The result is a collection of songs that peel away the layers of reverb and distortion to lay bare their starkly honest and emotional cores.

Bell Beat

Our Manderley

ON SALE $14.97 Vinyl: $10.03 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Note: The LP version comes with a CD and a CD Baby Download Card. The Bell Beat's album, Our Manderley, can be compared to a fine pint of India Pale Ale. It opens with the slow, pungent notes of an organ, hits with finely-composed complexities of musical flavor and depth, while finishing smoothly with clear intention. With this follow-up release to The Carrot Chase (performed/recorded as Sh! The Octopus), The Bell Beat has ventured introspectively forward. With song-writing firmly rooted in the storied canon of American music but tempered by varied contemporary indie rock movements, The Bell Beat manages to create a catalog of songs that swells with the nautical energy and the arboreal essence of the Great Lakes. The musical framework of each piece is layered with rich sound and verse. Lyrics anchored in a style more akin to American prose, each piece can all at once respect the work of long-dead poets and give breath to the sensible whisperings of continued oral tradition. The Bell Beat's music sounds at home both in a local Detroit pub or at a favorite camping spot buried somewhere in the Leelanau Peninsula. It has the character of the urban landscape and the fidelity of hushed leaves and folding waves. Randy Bishop is the principal songwriter and vocalist. His inspired vocals and driven guitar rhythms sail under the dancing and head-bobbingly addictive melodies of fellow guitarist Andy Stachowiak. The interplay between both these guitarists is further accented by Marina Trejo's enriching layers of vocal accents and keyboard intricacies. Joel Pearson, drummer, and Chris Sesta, bassist, anchoring these soaring mid-ranges and high-notes, compose the incredibly unshakable and complex rhythm section. The Bell Beat is, when whittled down to it's essence, a painting - flashes of bold, dots of bright, and strokes of dark shadow - in the form of musical expression and artistic camaraderie. Storied songs woven of musical and lyrical complexities, The Bell Beat's Our Manderley does not beg of you, but requires you, to stop, listen, tap, and hum along. And, it just might cajole you into drinking that pint of IPA. - Casimir Kopacki Writer/Chef/Musician.

Early in 2016, The Besnard Lakes released their finest album to date, the magisterial A Coliseum Complex Museum and toured worldwide throughout the following months. Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas, the couple at the heart of the band, had spent the previous summer on their annual retreat to their namesake Besnard Lake. In a place with so much personal significance, they spent time writing the music that was to form the album. Culling the tracks down to an album proved a difficult task and inevitably there were tracks they loved that just didn't quite fit with the overall album. So it is with delight that almost exactly a year on, the band are able to release this 12" of two brand new, exclusive tracks written and recorded at the same time as the album. "Laura Lee" is a sibling track to the album's illustrious first single, "The Golden Lion" - spacious reverb-y drums echo around an almost sci-fi vocal line sung by Olga Goreas. Meanwhile, the title track "The Divine Wind" is the Besnard Lakes at their expansive, psychedelic best: a sustained keyboard building through to a bombastic coda, complete with Lasek's unmistakable falsetto. If you ever needed a reminder of just how unique, beautiful and far-reaching this band is, then The Besnard Lakes Are the Divine Wind delivers. Theyll be on tour on the west coast of North America in December and worldwide throughout 2017.

Beware Of Darkness

Are You Real? [Vinyl]

ON SALE $17.99 Vinyl: $12.05 Buy

Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Beware of Darkness is a bold new power band with an old soul, pissed at life in the modern age. They are ready to frighten your children, sleep with your daughters, and make you shake, scream, and contort like it's a Depression-era, Southern exorcism. They play fast moving rock songs with exploding key and rhythm changes mid-song. They also play slow-cooked, sexed-up, bluesy things. Imagine Bowie's Hunky Dory with low, detuned, primal, Zeppelin-esqe guitar riffs. It's clear from the opening squeal of "Muthafucka" on the band's sophomore album Are You Real? that Beware of Darkness is on the up-and-up, and riding high on new wings while holding down that which endeared fans in the first place. That song's process - written by pairing a Tempest drum machine beat with a raw riff and bass line built from the bottom-end up - was a blueprint for much of the album, and finds frontman Kyle Nicolaides at his absolute peak. Elsewhere, tracks pulse and rage while soaring and chiming; all is perhaps a little less sinister this time around. Where earlier Beware of Darkness material may have fallen more on the side of leather and metal, these songs hearken to the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood, The Struts, Wolf Alice, Cage the Elephant, Skaters, even Nirvana. Songs like "Dope," "Summerdaze," and "Sugar in the Raw" show their subtle hip-hop influence, and in fact the trio was co-written swiftly with the female hip-hop producer Trinity, a collaboration Nicolaides says was truly magic and inspiring.

Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. When squirming black mold in a dingy Bayshore, CA, warehouse became sentient, creaked and took humanoid form it created Blank Square and their singularly odd-punk debut, Animal I - sounding like the weirder end of Flesheaters but with a sterility that can only be contemporarily compared to Total Control's Aussie hardcore no-wave and then with a pinch of what made DNA and Mars amazing. This album is captured with plenty of concrete and sheet metal kept in the mix and a highlight towards dissonant syncopations, as if it was recorded in a empty room minus one chair and definitely down a flight of wet, cement stairs. Featuring saxophone with a mild but nauseating-at-times rippling slap delay, the band cruises on a rhythm section that sounds like they've got another house show to play tonight after this one. Rectangular in all the right places, it's uncomfortable, like sleeping in a car. For listeners who love art in their sax punk, reaching way back into California's punk history (SST would've undoubtedly dug this). There you go, weirdos.

Sammy Brue embodies the kind of wisdom, talent and natural empathy that are often signs of age and maturity, and yet at 15 years old, Brue can place himself in the shoes of others, real or fictionalized, and write stories about them. The Ogden, UT based songwriter has been writing songs since the age of 10. He signed to New West Records at 14 and now, with his debut album in hand, Sammy Brue takes the next step forward. The forthcoming album, I Am Nice, produced by Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) and John Paul White (former Civil Wars) will be released June 9, 2017. Recorded in Florence, AL, they created a brilliant album with nuanced dimension that provides emotional resonance to Brues songs which Rolling Stone described as a collection of devastatingly beautiful songs that touch on heartbreak, jealousy, God and suicide. Rolling Stone would further declare Brue an Americana prodigy." Though Sammy may appear quiet and unassuming, his songs speak volumes. From busking at Sundance at age 10, to opening for Justin Townes Earle, John Paul White, Lucinda Williams and John Moreland to mention a few, as well as performing at Summer Set and the Newport Folk Festival, you will be hearing a lot about Sammy Brue as he stands on the precipice of what appears to be a long and ever-evolving creative journey.

The Film: This strikingly shot concert documentary follows enigmatic Drag City singer-songwriter Bill Callahan on a two week tour from California to New York. For the past 25 years, under both the Smog moniker and under his own name, Callahan has cultivated a legacy as both a pioneer in the lo-fi movement and one of the country’s finest troubadours. The film is built on impressionistic scenes of Callahan’s life on the road combined with his cryptic musings ("I started playing music when I was 20, and time stopped for me then in a good way”), creating a voyeuristic glimpse into his meticulously constructed universe of disaffection and disorder. It is an austere and beautiful portrait of both the musician and the multifarious American landscape.

''The Tourist'' nods to Alec Ounsworth's musical heroes--a group that includes artists such as John Cale, Robert Wyatt, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. However, this album also shows a natural progression from previous records. ''Better Off'' and ''The Vanity Of Trying'' are lush, keyboard-augmented songs, while ''A Chance To Cure'' and ''Ambulance Chaser'' are rhythmically askew, and the sighing ''Loose Ends'' is delicate, acoustic-based folk-rock. Gatefold album jacket comes with download card and limited edition white vinyl.

Vinyl LP pressing, includes digital download. The Clientele return with Music for the Age of Miracles, their first release of new music since 2010's MinotaurEP. It seems fitting that a chance meeting with a ghost from the past/future is what led to the first album of new Clientele songs in seven years. Singer and principal songwriter Alasdair MacLean and Anthony Harmer knew one another and played music together in the mid-90s but had lost touch. On Music for the Age of Miracles, Harmer joins the line-up of MacLean, James Hornsey (bass), and Mark Keen (drums, piano, percussion), contributing string and brass arrangements as well as guitars, vocals, keyboards, saz and, yes, Santoor. There's something rapturous about the ways in which tracks such as "Falling Asleep" and the exquisite "Everything You See Tonight Is Different From Itself" stretch out in choral harmony and rhythmic syncopation. In addition, Alasdair's lyrics create a series of linked, impressionistic stories or poems, even if their exact meaning may be obscure.

Limited colored vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Todd Fink and wife Orenda Fink converged first on tour, then in love and now in music. Closeness, the couple's first group together, is the result of two incredibly talented musicians melding in life and in art. Both halves of this new project have work spanning a variety of venerated musical outfits. Todd is most notably the frontman of The Faint, while Orenda is best known as one-half of the slick Azure Ray, and has credits including Moby, Bright Eyes, Paul Kalkbrenner, Eric Bachmann, Delerium, Sparklehorse, and Isaac Brock. Todd and Orenda had often talked about starting a band together after meeting and falling in love in 2002 (married in 2005) but had always been busy with other projects. In 2015, they were energized to finally realize their vision for a band together. In an amalgam of their previous work, Closeness emerges with an electronic but shadowy southern gothic sound. Todd's high-energy, cool and synthetic voice lifts and energizes Orenda's mystical and warm-hearted aura. Their debut work, which Todd recorded, produced and mixed in his home studio, is ripe with dreamlike scenarios, skirting the edge of otherworldliness. Pulsating rhythms boom and break around futuristic vocals from both. Together, they create a unified archetype that is moody, therapeutic and deeply inspired by the most basic questions about life, meaning, love and death.

Color Film sees the duo of Daryl Palumbo and Richard Penzone recontextualizing their shared set of influences into a wholly new sonic amalgam thats unmistakably familiar, yet simultaneously shimmers in a way youve never heard before. Its not a reinvention so much as it is a brave progression for this twosome whose collective musical resume includes a myriad of culture-driving projects that have created waves in the music scene. The story of Color Film began six years ago when Palumbo and Penzone united for some scheduled live dates. Palumbo explains,The two of us probably share more interests than anyone else Ive ever met in my life and there are all these wild, arty records that we both love so it only made sense for us to sit down and try to channel that into something new. Theres the pop thing, a lot of synthesizer sounds, sampled instruments and smooth bass and I feel so lucky that were in a place where we can write this type of music. The duo are the first to admit that the influences and music on Living Arrangements may be less straight-forward than their previous projects but when you consider what informed the album, it makes perfect sense.

Phil Cook

People Are My Drug [LP]

ON SALE $20.99 Vinyl: $14.06 Buy

Transforming pain and injustice into love and compassion is a rendering that has been universal to poets and prophets for centuries. In present times, choosing to amplify community and positivity through art can seem like a radical act. With the arrival of People Are My Drug, Phil Cook is taking the spark from lights left on by musical heroes and offering a torch for listeners as they navigate their own dark corners. Where 2015's Southland Mission illuminated for listens what Phil Cook hears in his head, this latest record lays bare the way that music makes him feel. Side A alone, culminating with the shiver-inducing ''Another Mother's Son,'' has the capacity to light a fire in even the coldest of hearts. Having only recently stepped to the center of the stage as a solo artist, Cook now takes a moment, citing the power of community as his thesis statement. Each track asserts that he alone is no greater than the sum of the people who have brought him to this moment. Instead of standing on the shoulders of his heroes, Cook is humbly kneeling at their feet. Since Southland Mission, Cook has performed with childhood heroes including Mavis Staples, Bruce Hornsby, John Prine, Amy Ray and the Blind Boys of Alabama. Cook notes, ''I see life on a timeline that includes multi-generations. As someone who has sought mentors my whole life, I am honoring the people who shaped who I am, not only musically, but spiritually, emotionally and personally.'' He brings that forward in every note on People Are My Drug.
