…..news letter #632 – addiction 101…..

Well, if acquiring a 1500 piece collection on Friday wasn’t enough, Saturday night I went out digging and pulled a few sweet boxes of used gems for your listening pleasure. It has been brought to my attention that I perhaps have a record problem, I like to think I’m just dedicated to providing you guys with sweet wax! Anyway it seems like this was the perfect week for it since there wasn’t a whole lot new, and probably won’t be from now until Record Store Day, which is rapidly approaching! So, on with the records….

…..pick of the week…..


Jon Porras: Light Divide (Thrill Jockey) LP
Jon Porras (Barn Owl) creates drone music with a refined sense of atmosphere and remarkable forward motion. Regardless of the tools he uses, be it guitars and stacks of amplifiers or modular synthesizers, Porras creates cavernous sound-worlds that are as inviting as they are alien. Light Divide, his second solo release for Thrill Jockey, shows Porras shifting his focus entirely to electronic synthesis, using a wide array of analog and digital systems to exponentially expand his sonic palate. The resulting sounds are silhouettes of distant rhythms, abstracted traces of techno wastelands that come in and out of focus like an urban, post-industrial sprawl being overtaken by fog. Porras constructed and arranged the tracks on Light Divide as an architect would design a building, thinking of the sub-bass as a foundation, percussion as walls and support beams, and white noise and oblique melodies as the light filling the open spaces. Rather than writing passages or song structures, he focused on designing sounds from the ground up, building gestural movements with these sculpted slabs. Through this technique, patterns and musical phrases emerge in subtle and surprising ways. This theme of architecture and design is also reflected in the album cover, which was taken at Maison La Roche, a villa designed and built by Le Corbusier. Light Divide reveals Porras as a restless explorer, constantly finding new means by which to create expansive, impressionistic music. It demands close listening, and stands apart in Porras’ solo and Barn Owl discography for its intense attention to detail.

bardo1Bardo Pond: Refulgo (3Lobed) LP
In 2000 a deep love for Bardo Pond provided the inspiration to establish Three Lobed Recordings. Fourteen years later, Bardo Pond and Three Lobed are proud to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the band’s initial releases with Refulgo, an epic double LP collection of the band’s earliest 7” singles, split 7” tracks, and compilation appearances. This collection, the first of a series, compiles these essential Bardo Pond tracks in a manner to augment their enjoyment by longtime fans while also introducing this material to those who do not yet possess an encyclopedic knowledge of these modern psych rock pioneers. The material presented on Refulgo all comes from long out-of-print releases (which have also been largely unavailable digitally) and the entire content has been remastered. It has never sounded better. Bardo Pond has stood alongside psych rock peers yet unmistakably alone over the course of the twenty-plus years as a band. While their catalog is vast and spans a virtual wheelbarrow-load of albums, singles, splits and compilations, what is perhaps most remarkable is just how quickly as a band they developed their unique sound and voice. Refulgo presents as compelling an argument for that thesis as its two LPs worth of music present a band whose collective vision emerged effectively fully formed. Their first 7”, “Die Easy” / “Apple Eye” (first released on Compulsiv in January of 1994) is a primordial ooze of swampy, sludgey psych blues that clearly demonstrated the essential DNA that has become Bardo Pond’s multi-decade calling card. Track those building blocks through the subsequent releases and the sound is there in full bloom quickly, really by “New Drunks,” but really stretches out in full within the twenty-minute triumphant, genre-defining victory lap which is “Sangh Seriatim” (first released on Drunken Fish’s “Harmony of the Spheres” compilation in November of 1996). The temporal gap between the tracks from that first single, the first two presented on Refulgo, and “Sangh Seriatim,” the compilation’s concluding track, is shockingly small at less than three years. Most bands never fully realize their potential; this compilation demonstrates that Bardo Pond did it with remarkable speed as well as a high degree of maturity. Refulgo is released in a limited edition of 1,000 copies and is pressed on two pieces of 140 gram Dutch vinyl by Record Industry. The album is housed within an old style Stoughton tip-on gatefold bearing new artwork from Bardo Pond’s Clint Takeda. The album is accompanied by a download coupon for DRM-free digital files of the downloader’s choice.

Bardo Pond: Shone Like A Ton (3Lobed) LP
This is the first ever formal release of Bardo Pond’s 1992 self-released cassette Shone Like A Ton. The 6-track set has been remastered by Patrick Klem and Michael Gibbons and is released in a limited edition of 650 copies and is pressed on 140 gram Dutch vinyl by Record Industry. The album is housed within a traditional LP sleeve bearing new artwork by Bardo Pond’s Michael Gibbons. The album is accompanied by a download coupon for DRM-free digital files of the downloader’s choice. Bardo Pond were more than happy to do it themselves in their earliest days as a band. They recorded and self-released a handful of cassette-only albums to serve as merch table offerings as well as booking demos. Each of these cassettes offered a real-time snapshot of where Bardo Pond started sonically, each containing a primordial ooze of swampy, sludgey psych blues, demonstrating the essential DNA that has become Bardo Pond’s multi-decade calling card. Over the years a few of these cassettes have surfaced as band-issued CDRs and the like. However, 1992’s Shone Like A Ton has never been re-issued apart from those old, original cassette copies. This vinyl edition of this album marks the material’s first wide release, first vinyl release, and first digital release. Three Lobed Recordings is proud to release Shone Like A Ton in conjunction with Refulgo, a 2LP collection of Bardo Pond’s earliest singles and compilations tracks.

black lipsBlack Lips: Underneath The Rainbow (Vice) LP/CD
In tomorrow! Atlanta’s favorite sons the Black Lips are back with their first full-length in three years, Underneath the Rainbow. The Vice Records release was recorded at a variety of locations over the course of 2013 and its twelve songs boast a stable of studio collaborators whose pedigree speaks to how much the band has grown and sonically matured over the course of their 15 year long career. After letters to incarcerated studio legend Phil Spector to produce went unanswered the band convened at Dunham Studios in New York to record initial tracks with Dap Kings music director Tommy Brenneck (Cee Lo, Charles Bradley). The group then decamped to Nashville to record several songs with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys producing, finally rounding out the album with a couple of songs co-produced with lifetime Lips recording collaborator, Ed Rawls. The resultant collection was mixed by Grammy winner Jimmy Douglass (Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Björk) and features artwork shot by legendary photographer Mick Rock (David Bowie, Queen, Lou Reed). Underneath the Rainbow blends southern rock with throwback C&W and blues on lead single “Boys in the Wood,” while “Funny” stands as the first Black Lips’ song with a prominent synth, however, the album owes just as much to the kiwi pop of New Zealand’s South Island and the Chicago South Side’s Crucial Conflict as it does the standard American South. It never strays far from the traditional roots music that has always found a comfortable home with the Black Lips, but invites enough curiosity with its approach to attract even the most unlikely listener. Since the release of 2011’s Arabia Mountain, which landed the Black Lips on the cover of SPIN among many other distinctions, the band have been a live fixture worldwide, including festival appearances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Primavera, All Tomorrows Parties, Austin City Limits, as well as positioning themselves as international music diplomats via tours in Thailand, Turkey, Australia, and a highly ambitious, ground-breaking tour of the Middle East (which was the subject of an NPR All Things Considered piece as well as a feature length documentary Kids Like You & Me). “Does what all great psych rock ought to: It freaks you out, but in the best possible way.” – Rolling Stone

cashJohnny Cash: Out Among the Stars (Legacy) LP
In tomorrow! Legacy Recordings is proud to announce the release of Out Among The Stars (Columbia/Legacy), a remarkable new album comprised of 12 recently discovered Johnny Cash studio recordings. The tracks on Out Among The Stars were originally recorded in Nashville, Tennessee at Columbia Studios in 1981 and 1111 Sound Studios in 1984 and produced by Billy Sherrill, the architect of the “countrypolitan” sound who was heading A&R at CBS Records Nashville at the time. On these songs – which include duets with June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings – Johnny worked with an expanded ensemble featuring a young Marty Stuart on guitar and mandolin and Nashville A-Team members Jerry Kennedy (guitar), Pete Drake (steel guitar), Hargus “Pig” Robbins (piano) and Henry Strzelecki (bass). The recordings, which have never been released in any form, are not demos, outtakes or alternate versions. They remained in the vaults during the years Columbia Records released Johnny Cash’s last albums for the label and were subsequently forgotten. The recordings on Out Among The Stars first surfaced in 2012, when John Carter Cash, along with the Cash experts at Legacy, was cataloging his father’s and mother’s exhaustive archives in Hendersonville, Tennessee, and at the Sony Music Archives. “When my parents passed away, it became necessary to go through this material,” he says. “We found these recordings that were produced by Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s…they were beautiful.” John Carter Cash, along with co-producer and archivist Steve Berkowitz, enlisted Marty Stuart, Buddy Miller and Carlene Carter, as well as other master musicians, to collaborate in restoring the album at the Cash Cabin Studios in Hendersonville, TN. The result, Out Among The Stars, is a great lost Johnny Cash album connecting the revolutionary rockabilly of his Sun Records years to the epochal final albums he made for American Recordings. Across five decades of making music, Cash was not only one of the most prolific artists to ever cut records, he was also an American music archetype, the Man in Black who crossed over into pop culture and never sold out. Thirty years in the making, Out Among The Stars is a classic Johnny Cash album, about to be heard for the very first time!

mac demarcoMac Demarco: Salad Days (Captured Tracks) LP/CD
“As I’m getting older, chip up on my shoulder…” is the opening line from Mac DeMarco’s second full-length LP Salad Days, the follow up to 2012’s lauded Mac DeMarco 2. Amongst that familiar croon and lilting guitar, that initial line from the title track sets the tone for an LP of a maturing singer/songwriter/producer. Someone strangely self-aware of the positives and negatives of their current situation at the ripe old age of 23. Written and recorded around a relentless tour schedule, Salad Days gives the listener a very personal insight into what it’s all about to be Mac amidst the craziness of a rising career in a very public format. The lead single, “Passing Out Pieces,” set to huge overdriven organ chords, contains lines like “…never been reluctant to share, passing out pieces of me…” Clearly, this isn’t the same record that breezily gave us “Dreamin,” and “Ode to Viceroy” but the result of what comes from their success. “Chamber of Reflection,” a track featuring icy synth stabs and soulful crooning, wouldn’t be out of place on a fantasy Shuggie Otis and Prince collaboration. Standout tracks like these show Mac’s widening sound, whether insights into future directions or even just welcome one-off forays into new territory. Still, this is musically, lyrically and melodically good old Mac DeMarco, through and through. The same crisp John Lennon/Phil Spector era homegrown lush production that could have walked out of Geoff Emerick’s mixing board in 1972, but with that peculiar Mac touch that’s completely of right now. “Brother,” a complete future classic, is Mac at his most soulful and easygoing but with that distinct weirdness and bite that can only come from Mr. DeMarco. “Treat Her Better” is rife with “Mac-isms,” heavily chorused slinky lead guitar, swooning vocal melodies, effortless chords that come along only after years of effort, and the other elements seriously lacking in independent music: sentiment and heartfelt sincerity.

Kevin Drew: Darlings (Arts & Crafts) LP
Broken Social Scene’s founder, songwriter, and front man Kevin Drew will be releasing his newest solo album, Darlings, on Arts & Crafts. Darlings shows Drew growing from his role in indie vanguard Broken Social Scene to create a breakthrough statement of personal artistry. Darlings is also his first solo album that is truly, to put it bluntly, solo. If Drew’s 2007 effort Spirit If… was his inaugural step beyond the decade-long shadow of his former band, Darlings spotlights Drew with seven years more experience and maturity. Darlings reveals a more focused and refined sound; more honest, revelatory songwriting, with Drew’s craft concentrated on lyrical and emotional connections, less so than guitar pedals and studio jams. This isn’t to say these aren’t classic Kevin Drew songs. His unorthodox lyrical explorations of family, hope and disappointment, skin and spit, intercourse, cultural infection and the death of communication, figure clearer than ever into the hallmark of his infectious melodic phrasing. Darlings is a fist-pumping fight for the euphoria of the after-party and the crush of pre-dawn passions. It’s a best friend’s zealous pep talk to not give up, and bring youth back into the fresh focus of life. On Darlings, Drew casts reflective inspiration forward into the brightness of the future with a soundtrack to kick everything into high gear. Darlings features longtime collaborators Charles Spearin and Ohad Benchetrit (Do Make Say Think, Broken Social Scene) along with Dean Stone (Apostle of Hustle) and Dave Hamelin (The Stills). Darlings was co-produced by Dave Hamelin, Kevin Drew and Graham Lessard. “I made this record surrounded by mountains and lakes with the greatest people. Charlie and Ohad have been with me since I began making records. I call their style “river and canoe.” They have been playing together since high school and move around each other with an original melodic grace and ease. There is no one out there like them. Working with Dean Stone was something I’ve wanted to do ever since watching his old funk band on speed during my late teens. “I met Graham Lessard in Banff and he is a wonderful engineer who inspired great sessions from us. We spent a couple of weeks at the Banff Centre. We hung out and did additional recording and mixing at the Bathouse Studio, then put the recording on hold so I could finish up the album I was making with Andy Kim. Andy became a big inspiration for me. He reminded me about the magic of making records. Without working with Andy Kim I am not sure Darlings would have happened. “One of the real golden moments was introducing Dave Hamelin to the project. Turning him into a mixer/producer was amazing to witness. He brought such incredible energy into it and really helped me find my songs. This record is a celebration of memories. It’s about the rise and fall of love and sex, in my own life and in today’s society. This topic has been with me for years. I approached it focused purely on the songwriting, leaving all the tricks and explosions behind. I hope you like it… and if you don’t, give to someone who will.” – Kevin Drew

Liars: Mess (Mute) LP/CD
In tomorrow! Mess is the follow up to 2012’s WIXIW, the sound of a band in an ambiguous, fragile in-between state. Mess, on the other hand, is Liars with their balls out – an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics that sacrifices self persecution for potent, purposeful abandon. Explains Angus Andrew, “We are a reactionary, or maybe a better word is schizophrenic band. We go from one extreme to the other. Working on the last record was really doubtful and paranoid, and that’s fine, but it just meant that when work started on this one, it was the exact opposite. It was way more instinctual, fun and confident.” Produced by Angus Andrew and mixed by Timothy ‘Q’ Wiles (whose previous production credits include label-mates VCMG), the new album is less concerned with place as on previous albums, but sees the band back in their own studio in LA. Liars’ career has seen the band rattle through pigeonholes in an attempt to avoid them all together: brittle yet taught punk funk; liminal no-wave; ecstatic noise-pop; 21st-century garage rock; post-millennial post-rock; delicate electronics; reaching here, where Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross now find themselves.

Omar Souleyman: Wenu Wenu (Domino) LP
If you missed this last time around, don’t sleep on it this time!!! Omar Souleyman – the Syrian artist who not only changed the vibe of weddings throughout the Middle East with his Shaabi street sound but also brought it to the West through his notorious late night festival slots – has finally recorded an album. After three compilations and a live release, Wenu Wenu is his first album to be recorded in a studio. Produced by Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Wenu Wenu combines aspects of Middle Eastern dabke dance music and traditional songs with his own contemporary style. Often described as “Syrian techno,” Souleyman records and performs live with long-time collaborator Rizan Sa’id. Citing Hebden and Bjork as fans, Souleyman’s audience has expanded, no longer just appealing to those interested in Middle Eastern music and tradition. His festival performances including at this year’s Primavera Sound in Spain has seen appreciation for his well-crafted, hectic and – at times – intense music grow and transcend not only language, but cultural barriers. Recorded primarily live in the studio, Wenu Wenu distills Omar’s enthralling live performances into laser blasts of recorded techno scales ascending and descending around his iconic voice. The LP is pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl and includes a MP3 download card. The album cover was painted by acclaimed New York City based artist Spencer Sweeney.

Tycho: Awake (Ghostly) LP
For nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, but with the release of Awake – his second LP for Ghostly International – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Relating closer to post-rock than ambient soundscapes, the record is situated in the present, sounding more like Hansen than drawing from his influences. “This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record.” Following 2011’s Dive LP, the San Francisco-based designer toured extensively, and with a full band on stage, his sound coalesced into a percussive, organic whole. Zac Brown (guitars, bass) rejoined Scott on the road for this tour, but it was the particular addition of Rory O’Connor’s live drumming that ultimately sent Hansen back to the studio with a more precise vision. “After the tour, I decided that I wanted to capture the more energetic, driven sound of the live show on the next album,” Hansen recalls. Bringing musicians into Tycho’s creative process was a step towards expanding his own songwriting and advancing the project beyond its current sound. In a cabin near Tahoe last winter, Zac and Scott began fleshing out the structure of the new record, but it wasn’t until they set up shop in the hills of Santa Cruz with Rory that it all fell into place. “It crystallized the vision of how the drums would come to the forefront on this record,” says Hansen. The sound was much more stripped-down and concise with more organic instruments in the fold. Songs like “Montana” and “Awake” are a departure from Tycho’s previous material – unique to the group effort poured into the songs on the new record – while “See” and “Dye” echo ideas from previous works, bridging a middle ground between the old and new. Working with Count Eldridge, who also engineered Dive, the team could fixate on the pulses that Tycho might previously layer under synthesizers and exhume them with distinct bass and guitar patterns. Also known for his design work as ISO50, Hansen’s visual and sonic efforts have dovetailed throughout the course of his career. “This is the first time in my life I’ve dropped everything to focus on one artistic pursuit,” notes Hansen. Previous Tycho releases came to fruition when an amalgam of songs were nearing completion, but Awake is where music becomes the focus and true expression becomes the result.

Various: Bombay Disco (Cultures of Soul) LP/CD
“The sound of Disco rose out of Philadelphia in the ’70’s before being nurtured in New York and later rising to the top of the pops. By 1979 it made its way to India, where it was blended with sitars, tablas and huge orchestras in a wildly inventive, and often boldly surreal, fusion of Purab aur Pachhim (East and West). When a film producer told Bollywood composer Bappi Lahiri, ‘I want to have music like ‘Saturday Night Fever’, Bombay Disco was born. Soon nearly every South Asian film, it seemed, had a disco track blaring from cinema screens. Although disco’s popularity waned in the west, it soared in the east throughout the ’80’s. Disco songs appeared in every type of film, from family dramas and historical epics to curry westerns and horror movies. Cultures Of Soul Records presents Bombay Disco, 13 selections excavated from the dusty bazaars of India by DJ Brother Cleve. The hunt even brought him to Bappi Lahiri’s home, where India’s ‘Disco King’ regaled him with music and stories. Bombay Disco showcases the unique musical hybrid that is Bollywood film music. Don your leisure suit, puff a chillum, and get on the dancefloor.”
