Well, after the last couple of weeks, and the massive amount of new releases flooding the shelves, this week a bit of reprive. That isn’t to say there’s nothing new, but there’s a lot less. Which is fine since we all could probably use a week or two to catch up on all the new wax. Of course next week, there will be copious new releases again I’m sure.
…..picks of the week…..
*Shampoo Boy: Licht (Blackest Ever Black) LP
Licht is the debut album by Shampoo Boy, a new guitar, bass and electronics trio from Vienna, comprising members Christian Schachinger, Christina Nemec, and Peter Rehberg. Schachinger and Rehberg have played together in various projects over the last 25 years, most notably Peterlicker — see Last Slave (2010) and Nicht(2011), both released on Editions Mego. Schachinger was also involved in Der Scheitel, their album In einem Haus das Liebe heißt being a classic of German “Schlagermusik.” Rehberg currently operates the Editions Mego family of labels and is a member of KTL, R/S, and Fenn O’Berg as well as working on theater productions with Gisele Vienne, and with choreographer Margret Gudjonsdottir. Nemec’s background is in avant-rock and industrial outfits such as Bray and her own performance group SV Damenkraft. She remains highly active as a solo artist, both as Chra and under her own name, and she has performed on several occasions with Lydia Lunch. Licht is made up of four improvisations recorded and mixed at Twisted, Wien between April 2012 and January 2013. Mastered by Noel Summerville at 3345, London. Artwork by Stephen O’Malley.

Camera Obscura: Desire Lines (4AD) CD
Not many bands keep going through everything, through thick and thin. Camera Obscura have been a group for seventeen years. They’ve made music that rouses the soul, fills the heart, and squeezes on your dancing shoes. But this time, things are different. Last winter, the band took their music to Portland, Oregon to work with producer Tucker Martine, who had added so much to the music of R.E.M., The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket and Sufjan Stevens. This time, the band also wanted clarity and space in their sound, and not just capture a string of moments from disparate days. They didn’t want to hide behind effects or reverb either. They wanted their music to feel freer, as they did, and take their listeners with them. They also brought in other singers to complement their songs: Neko Case and Jim James from My Morning Jacket contribute vocals. Desire Lines is a big, gorgeous pop record that sounds like it means it. It wears its heart on its sleeve, and its music shines with light. Here are guitars that have a heavenly glow, drums that rouse you from your slumbers, vocals that make your blood rush, choruses that beam for miles. Here are beautiful songs about what people go through, in honest terms. Desire Lines is an album about appreciating which path you’re on, say the band. The way you really want to go, and can go. About the way they are going. Sample it here!
Caribou: Milk of Human Kindness
Caribou: Start Breaking My Heart
Caribou: Up In Flames
In tomorrow… It’s hard to believe it’s been twelve years since Dan Snaith released his first album as Manitoba back in the spring of 2001. In fact, April 2013 marks the tenth anniversary of his breakthrough album Up in Flames, still the biggest selling album in The Leaf Label’s history. To celebrate, Leaf is re-releasing his first three albums, making them available on vinyl for the first time in years-not to mention the first time Up in Flames and The Milk of Human Kindness have been available on Leaf in North America (both were previously on Domino). All copies will also include a CD of the album. Subject to a well-documented lawsuit, Snaith was obliged to change his artist name to Caribou, which was first used for the release of 2005’s The Milk of Human Kindness. Start Breaking My Heart and Up in Flames will be available for the first time under the Caribou name, with fully restored album artwork, while The Milk of Human Kindness will be an exact reproduction of the original vinyl release. Sample it here! And here!
Dirty Beaches: Drifters/Love is the Devil (Zoo) LP
In tomorrow… Dirty Beaches, aka Alex Zhang Hungtai, started off as a one-man band in 2005 in Montreal. A trans-Pacific nomad and genre-hopping sound-smith, he has released music ranging from drone instrumentals to film scores, and possesses a fascination for dissecting popular American music like blues, rockabilly, soul, R&B and hip hop, often rendering it to a point where it is no longer recognizable. Hungtai’s latest release, Drifters / Love Is the Devil, is a sprawling double-album that chronicles the musician’s life on the road over the past two years-through the labyrinths of Berlin, Belgrade, Paris, and many other cities; through heartbreak, rebirth and masochistic, existential self-reflection. Recorded between Montreal and Berlin in the winter of 2012, the two halves of Drifters / Love Is the Devil are separated only by aesthetics, as they are tightly woven together thematically as one conceptual piece. If 2011’s Badlands was an exercise in exorcising past ghosts in a semi-fictional world, then Drifters / Love Is the Devil is a reflection on the fragility of reality-that of the outside world in which the artist explores the nightlife of bright neon temptations and hedonistic values, and that of the inner world, one of remorse and lovelorn tragedies. Sample it here!
Ekin Fil: s/t (Students of Decay) LP
In tomorrow… Operating out of Istanbul, Ekin Fil is the solo project of Turkish musician Ekin Uezeltuezenci. Her music first came to the ears of many by way of Language, a 2011 cassette release on the Root Strata label that presented listeners with a fractured, hazy sound-world in which half-remembered melodies and wraith-like vocals cohered into dark and hypnotic masses. On Ekin Fil, Uezeltuezenci opens the curtains a bit, letting in some light and offering up an even more refined work. This haunting collection of songs wouldn’t sound out of place on Drunken Fish Records in 1995, effectively channeling the ghosts of Roy Montgomery and the Bristol shoegaze scene, while occupying similar sonic climes to those traversed by Grouper and Jessica Bailiff. “Anything Anywhere” opens the album and articulates its central concerns, with obscured, rhythmic guitar shapes coiling around Uezeltuezenci’s ethereal voice. Later, field recordings usher in the blackened night of “Two Stars,” one of the record’s most stark and exhilarating movements. Ultimately, Ekin Fil is a remarkably cohesive statement, an album of devotional pieces that function together to form a beautiful, faraway whole. Sample it here!
Flesh Eaters: No Questions Asked (Mono) LP
In tomorrow… Before the nihilistic hardcore of Black Flag and wasteland blues of the Gun Club was the void. And from that void crept forth a schoolteacher named Chris Desjardins who in the fall of 1977 was about to simplify his name to Chris D. and start one of the most complicated and uncompromising bands ever to emerge from Los Angeles. He had charisma and connections and an irresistible vision, and he recruited members of X, Wall Of Voodoo, The Controllers, The Screamers, The Flyboys and The Plugz-a rotating roster of future punk legends who’d split time from their own bands to become The Flesh Eaters. By the summer of 1980, the Flesh Eaters had left scorch marks across their genre and their generation both, releasing the debut ‘Disintegration Nation’ 7″, a compilation called Tooth And Nail and a first annihilating full-length called No Questions Asked that critic Richard Meltzer called ‘goddam genius.’ In the Flesh Eaters, murder ballads and cut-up Burroughs-ian imagery and wrecked-in-the-head rock ‘n’ roll were boiled and bled into one terrifying thing by people who practically invented West Coast punk, and who at the direction of Chris D. were now inventing something else. Now Mono Records releases this deluxe LP version of No Questions Asked with complete bonus tracks including the ‘Disintegration Nation’ 7″, the three tracks from the Tooth and Nail and never-before-on-vinyl demos restored at Chris D.’s direction-all material unavailable in the U.S. since its original release, and the definitive reissue of the last great lost L.A. punk band”-Chris Zeigler Sample it here!
*Henry Flynt: Graduation (Superior Viaduct) LP
In tomorrow… Henry Flynt took a high-brow approach to so-called low-brow music. Combining sounds from his native North Carolina with an avant-garde sensibility honed in New York City’s loft scene in the 1960s, Flynt created what he describes as “new American ethnic music.” As a student of Hindustani singer Pandit Pran Nath alongside La Monte Young and Terry Riley, an associate of the Fluxus movement, and even a live collaborator with the Velvet Underground, Flynt was a part of one of the 20th century’s richest art and music milieus. Graduation, recorded between 1975 and 1979, was meant to be the debut of his avant-garde hillbilly music. The album’s title track is a slow, twisted ballad that unfolds like a funeral dream over dirge-like country riffs. “Celestial Power,” the album’s 20-minute closing track, is an entrancing minimalist composition performed strictly with oscillating vibrato guitar. As Flynt explains, “I aspire to a beauty which is ecstatic and perpetual, while at the same time being concretely human and emotionally profound.” Shelved upon its completion in 1980, Graduation was not released until after the turn of the century. In 2013, it still sounds years ahead of its time. Sample it here!
I Signori Della Galassia: Iceman (Medical) LP
In tomorrow… Medical Records presents a reissue of the very rare and sought after 1979 opus by Italy’s I Signori Della Galassia. Iceman was released in 1979 and has been long out of print for over 30 years fetching very high prices on the collector’s market. I Signori Della Galassia (translated as The Men Of Galaxy) is best described as a sonic hybrid of space disco/cosmic meets Italian progressive pop/rock. They were founded in Savona in the late ‘70s. Played with analog gear such as a variety of synthesizers as well as traditional guitar and drums. It is a very rich and diverse LP with multiple interesting twists and turns. The opener “Proxima Centauri” is a space disco odyssey with super-catchy synth melodies over driving disco beats mixed with hypnotic passages. The title track “Iceman” is a fusion of Italian pop and space disco which makes for an interesting combination. Other tracks have a completely different feel with elements of prog and experimental rock overtones. “Archeopterix” is another standout track with washing synths, warbling filters, and gentle backing vocals. The LP contains two bonus tracks (at the end of each side) which were released as singles at the time (“Luce” and “Eliane”). The LP features preserved front cover artwork and slightly modified back cover original artwork (at the artist’s request). This LP will surely appeal to lovers of Space, Rockets, Kraftwerk, Milkways, and Zodiac. Presented on 180 gram silver opaque high-quality vinyl in a limited edition of 650 copies. Sample it here! And here! And here!
Simon Joyner & Dennis Callaci: New Secrets (Shrimper) LP
In tomorrow… Simon Joyner, who over the course of thirteen albums has released a unique and influential body of work on a myriad of independent labels, and Dennis Callaci, who has recorded nearly as many records with his band REFRIGERATOR and runs one of those said labels, present their second record together. Their first collaborative release was a one-sided vinyl-only release on Catsup Plate Records a decade back entitled Stranger Blues, a direct-to-one-track live recording of the two playing together and sharing one mic. Though recorded in the same spot (i.e. the living room of the Callaci home), New Secrets is a different record altogether-a call and response exercise of sorts, with a Joyner song answering the plea to the preceding Callaci dirge. Recorded and mixed live by Jarvis Taveniere (noted for his Rearhouse recordings and as a member of Woods) over the course of three days, the duo was backed up by Joyner’s band from the Ghosts record of last year. Augmenting the album’s eleven tracks are guest appearances by Franklin Bruno (Human Hearts, Nothing Painted Blue) and Kevin Morby (The Babies). Reuniting the original cast from the first release, noted artist Rob Carmichael designed the cover art around Callaci’s drawings. Sample it here!
Milk Music: Beyond Living (Perennial) LP
In tomorrow…. Available again!!! “Wild prayers of humanity that blur the line between Hardcore and Rock. The new Vibe for the new era. Slow crashing waves of low tones that shiver across your being. Om Mani Padme. Bright beams of sound. Alien Abductions. You are far above what you thought was your body, but you can still smoke weed. You are receiving it now. God’s Radio. You are receiving it now. It jams in the space behind your face. Beyond Living. greatest hits. 6 tracks. For people and dogs of Earth. Made in the USA. 45RPM.” Sample it here!
Oblivians: Desperation (In The Red) LP
In tomorrow… In The Red is proud to announce the release of The Oblivians’ first studio full-length album since 1997’s …Play Nine Songs with Mr. Quintron. Desperation picks up right where the band left off, delivering fourteen scorching tracks of soulful punk-garage-blues trash rock informed in equal parts by ’50s rock ‘n’ roll, ’60s garage rock, Memphis soul, Delta blues and Killed By Death-style punk. There’s even a Cajun Zydeco cover here! As Greg Oblivian puts it, “Between our last record as a band in ’97 and now, a lot of water has passed below that bridge. We three went our own ways after that and pursued our own musical goals. Personally, I often missed the dynamic that Jack and Eric offered to my songwriting. Almost as much as I missed being given carte blanche to add a thing or two to theirs. I’ve played with lots of great musicians in the interim but needless to say, it’s a hard itch to scratch. The dynamic between us was a singular thing. So, over the years as we would occasionally reunite for a festival or special occasion, the idea began to grow in the back of my mind-the idea of making a new record. I mean, if you’re going to keep playing as a band eventually you’ll want new songs to play. Because as much as we enjoyed playing together the thing I missed the most was creating together. So that’s what we did.” Sample it here!
Queens Of The Stone Age: …Like Clockwork (Matador) LP/CD
For their first album in six years, Joshua Homme’s mighty Queens Of The Stone Age called back classic members Dave Grohl and Joey Castillo on drums, and Nick Oliveri and Mark Lanegan on vocals. Of course the current lineup of Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman and Dean Fertita are also featured throughout. …Like Clockwork which Homme describes as “an audio documentary of a manic year,” contains the QOTSA mastermind’s most intense, personal and beautiful songwriting to date. While the thunder of Queens past is still evident (especially in lead single “My God Is The Sun”) there are a number of gorgeous ballads – meditations on time passing, the struggle to create art, and the nearness of mortality. The music lives up to the album’s lyrical and conceptual ambitions, with some of Homme’s finest guitar work to date, at times recalling past greats such as Brian May or George Harrison, at other times uniquely his own. The rhythm section starts and stops on a dime, and in some of the more complex songs, the ensembles playing is virtuosic – but never sterile. …Like Clockwork was produced by Joshua Homme and QOTSA, recorded by Mark Rankin with additional engineering byJustin Smith, at Josh’s studio, Pink Duck, in Burbank, California. This standard pressing includes the album on two 150g discs playing at 45RPM with accompanying MP3 coupon. The striking album artwork, imagery and intro animations are by young British artist Boneface, working closely with Homme. Sample it here!
Red Temple Spirits: s/t (Independent Project) 3CD
In tomorrow… Independent Project Records is thrilled to announce the long-awaited CD reissue of the two phenomenal albums released by enigmatic Los Angeles band Red Temple Spirits: Dancing to Restore an Eclipsed Moon and If Tomorrow I Were Leaving for Lhasa, I Wouldn’t Stay a Minute More… Originally released in 1988 and 1989, these records sound like nothing else from the period, deftly blending gothic post-punk with pagan tribal psychedelia. Red Temple Spirits’ debut is a haunting masterpiece laden with exotic musicianship and a unique combination of Native American and Eastern mysticism. While shimmering guitar textures weave patterns over heavy hypnotic rhythms, the enchanting lyrical imagery of vocalist William Faircloth brings a trippy, shamanistic quality. On its ten powerful originals, plus what may be the finest cover version extant of Pink Floyd’s “Nile Song,” Dancing to Restore an Eclipsed Moon showcases an austerity, grace and pureness to form that remains fresh over two decades after it was originally recorded. A fully developed excursion into other realms, the band’s second album is marked by rumbling basslines and slithery guitar washes of elegant brilliance. Once again drawing inspiration from Tibetan and Native American cultures, vocalist Faircloth leads the listener through a tangle of mystical themes while guitarist Dallas Taylor, bassist Dino Paredes and drummer Thomas Pierik blend heavy tribal rhythms and etherial guitar. In addition to the nine originals, If Tomorrow… also features cover versions of Pink Floyd and 13th Floor Elevators. Both albums have been completely re-mastered and are supplemented with three bonus tracks (both sides of the New Land single, originally released on Independent Project in 1989, along with a previously unreleased later version of the song “New Land”) and a third disc reproducing the band’s first demo tape. Packaged in a deluxe over-sized four-color hand-letterpress discfolio designed by Bruce Licher, with full-color lyric inserts and gilded letterpress-printed glassine inner sleeves, this essential reissue is limited to a numbered edition of 1,000 copies. Sample it here!
Rilo Kiley: Rkives (Little Record Co.) LP
Rkives is a long awaited collection of unreleased songs, b-sides, and rarities spanning Rilo Kiley’s decade-long career which will be issued on Pierre de Reeder’s own indie label, Little Record Company. Rkives kicks things off with many of its nine never before released tracks, then meanders nostalgically backwards in time with a variety of demos, b-sides, and previously hard to find tracks to complete this 16 song double vinyl set. Complimented by artwork lovingly designed by the band with a rich mix of personal photos, collages, and hand written lyrics. Sample it here!
RP Boo: Legacy (Planet Mu) LP
In tomorrow… RP BOO-aka Kavain Space -is revered and respected among the dance music cognoscenti. He’s cited as one of the originators of footwork, the fast, repetitive, rhythmically syncopated music and dance style that’s a grandchild of Chicago house and which has gained international recognition via releases from Planet Mu and others, alongside internet archaeology from fans, experts and enthusiasts. Going back to the roots of this music, Space’s self-released 1997 track “Baby Come On” sampled and looped up ODB over tough syncopated drums, and in doing so helped to solidify the style that became known as footwork. Later on, in 1999, his track “11-47-99″ (aka”The Godzilla Track”) was monumental in the evolution of sampling in footwork, chopping up the Godzilla theme taken from “Simon Says” by Pharoahe Monche and setting off a trend for footwork versions of hip-hop tracks. Many cite RP Boo as the originator of footwork music, and it’s hard to argue, when the scrambled, syncopated drum patterns common to footwork can be largely traced back to him. RP Boo’s music is singular and unusual in footwork, featuring raps and dialogue adopted from juke, often in combination with sharp-edged and incidental samples giving some tracks a paranoid atmosphere. Sample it here!
Sigur Ros: Hvarf/Heim (XL) 2LP
Hvarf / Heim is comprised of two EPs. The title of the first, Hvarf, translates appropriately as “disappeared” as its five tracks are new studio recordings of lost songs from various points in Sigur Rós’ history. The first three, “Salka,” “Hljomalind” and “I Gaer” were never released either because they were not recorded, or because they were recorded and then not included on a finished album. The fourth and fifth songs, “Von” and perennial live favorite “Hafsol” are radical and complete reimaginings of songs from the band’s first album, the original versions of which were recorded by the band’s Jonsi Birgisson and Georg Holm with drummer Agust Gunnarsson prior to Kjartan Sveinsson and Orri Dyrason joining the band. An alternative translation of Hvarf is “Haven” which ties into the title of the second EP, Heim, or “Home.” Heim’s six tracks are live acoustic versions of songs from all four Sigur Rós studio albums recorded in Iceland during the band’s summer 2006 tour and early this spring. The unplugged scenario had been pretty much imposed on the band, there being no power at some of the locations. “Samskeyti,” “Vaka,” “Agaetis Byrjun” (never performed live before last summer) and “Heysatan” were played acoustically on the road during their summer tour, with the remaining “Staralfur” and “Von” being first interpreted for a protest concert against a planned road development. Limited edition double 150g multi-colored vinyl of only 1200 copies.
Sixth Station: Deep Night (Numero) LP
In tomorrow…. “A raw cry from the dark night of one man’s soul. Cloistered away from the popular culture of 1982, rural Illinois priest Tony Trosley painted a pastoral refraction of early 1970s Laurel Canyon watercolors with this stand-alone set of songs. Openhearted and naively psychedelic, Deep Night was recorded during a single pre-dawn marathon, and mixed live-to tape in an isolated chapel. Cobbled together out of local players to help fill out this ethereal soundscape, Trosley’s band brought an earnest but bluntly unsophisticated backdrop to his phaser-drenched 12-string guitar. The Sixth Station — named for a grim New Testament tableau in which Veronica washes the tortured face of Jesus — managed to avoid overtly Christian themes in favor of a mystical humanism that resonates timelessly, and to any sort of listener. This Deep Night is as profound and eerie as the images conjured by its title.” Sample it here!
Solar Bears: Supermigration (Planet Mu) LP
In tomorrow… A real sense of drama runs through Solar Bears’ music, and Supermigration, their second album following 2010’s critically lauded She Was Coloured In, is full of all kinds—from the intimate to the psychedelic, from the chase to the suppression. Supermigration is the result of a year and a half spent on / off in a state-of-the-art studio in the Wicklow Mountains (a far cry from the bedroom setup where they produced their debut). Occasionally one hears parallels in approach to the recent work of Broadcast and the Ghost Box crew, and Solar Bears’ music also possesses an electronic sci-fi sheen as rich as their Planet Mu peers, but an emotive, nostalgic side to Supermigration also transcends the now, cutting a path through their diverse inspirations that include everything from Erik Satie to the Incredible String Band, from Cluster to Madlib. Kowalski rightly notes, “It’s fair to say we listen to a lot of music from decades gone, but we get inspired far more from spontaneity in the studio.” If pushed, Kowalski might also admit the cut “Cosmic Runner” (leaked a while ago on various sites including Pitchfork) was inspired directly by Robert Anton Wilson’s Cosmic Trigger and that “Rainbow Collision” came from a “psychedelic daydream of two stained glass rainbows colliding over a Technicolor ocean….” Solar Bears are all about layers, a sense of movement and drama, brought about by a deep process that has resulted in one of the most exciting sophomore albums this year. Welcome to the trip.. Sample it here!
Various: King Bullard Version – Songs of the BOS Label (Numero) LP
In tomorrow… “On Cleveland’s late ’60s gospel scene, the BOS label was the refined, professional ying to Boddie’s lo-fi yang, galloping to the fore bearing a torch for Curtis Mayfield’s robe-wearing roots. Founded by gospel impresario James Bullard, BOS is the first chapter in story that includes stints producing major spiritual albums for the Birthright, Roadshow, and Word labels. BOS got its start inside Lester Johnson and Bill Branch’s Way Out concern, running the devotional wing of Cleveland’s largest black-owned record company, and picking up a ton of Way Out’s soulful flavor in the process. Compiled here are BOS’s less traditional moments — 12 bridges between FM R&B and AM sermons from a time when those worlds were splitting apart.”
Various: The Thing From The Crypt (Dark Entries) LP
In tomorrow… Dark Entries is proud to present The Thing From The Crypt, a 16-track compilation of UK DIY/Synth/New Wave/Post-Punk originally released in 1981. Showcasing the thriving post punk sound of Watford, a town in Hertfordshire, England, located 20 minutes northwest of central London. The Thing From The Crypt neither attempts to sell a ‘Wotford sound’ nor claims to be a comprehensive guide to the area’s best beat bands. Like all good compilations, its essence is variety: some tracks will make you come whilst other will make you vomit.”—original liner notes by Robert Dellar. This compilation features 8 bands with two songs included by each group. Tracks from Exhibit A, Sad Lovers & Giants, Mex, Gambit Of Shame, Flying Beechcraft, Image in Ruin, Soft Drinks, S-Haters, and Soft Drinks. All songs have been transferred from the master tapes by Paul Mex and remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a full color printed jacket using the original silk screened artwork. Each LP includes a copy of the 12 page booklet that came with the original pressing. The Thing From The Crypt is more than a local compilation, its the stuff John Peel shows were made of. Sample it here!
