FUCK BUTTONS 19. JULI
SLOW FOCUS
ATP
ATPRCD49 / ATPRLP49
CD/2LP
0666017262222 / 0666017262215
Fuck Buttons plasserte seg i toppsjiktet på ”alt” som var årets beste-lister for sitt
forrige album, 2009s Tarot Sport, og fortsetter knallsterkt med Slow Focus. Som
tidligere forholder de seg ikke til konvensjoner, men går sin egen vei og krysser støy,
elektronika og beats på en måte som igjen setter standarden i leftfield-landskapet.
Fun fact: Danny Boyle benyttet Fuck Buttons musikk i fjorårets OL-åpning
etter anbefaling fra elektronikalegendene Underworld.

DAUGHN GIBSON 5. JULI
ME MOAN
Sub Pop
SPCD1010 / SP1010
0098787101027 / 0098787101010
CD/LP
Med drag av Alan Vegas mørke miks av americana og elektroniske toner kommer
Daugh Gibson kjørende (Gibson er jo tidligere trucker) med et mørkt beist av et
album. Gibsons dype bariton og hans åpenbart gode øre for en sterk melodi gjør
Me Moan til et fascinerende stykke arbeid, og det hele låter svært så tidløst
tross den i utgangspunktet noe odde sjangermiksen. Anbefalt!

STILLS
Dead Oceans
DOC079 / DOC079LP
CD/LP
0656605137926 / 0656605137919
Avant pop-duoen Gauntlet Hair fikk Elsker-stempelet av Lydverket for sitt forrige
album og statsmediet sammenlignet dem den gang med Animal Collective. Den
sammenligningen står seg noenlunde fortsatt, men sammen med produsent Jacob
Portrait fra Unknown Mortal Orchestra drar de det på Stills i en mørkere retning,
og duoen nevner selv ting som White Zombie, The Durutti Column, Joy Division,
og Depeche Mode som inspirasjonskilder. Vi hører også hint av band som
No Age og Japandroids, men uansett, resultatet er eksemplarisk.

AMONG THE GREY
Yep Roc
YEP2308 / YEP2308LP
CD/LP
0634457230828 / 0634457230811
Cheyenne Mize introduserte seg først gjennom 10-tommeren Among the Gold
hvor hun delte rilleplass med Bonnie ’Prince’ Billy. Hun har også fått etiketten
Top ten discoveries at SXSW av NPR, og fikk skryt i New York Times for debuten,
Before Lately. Nå er hun her med Among the Grey, et storslått album som låter
som en krysning mellom en mer utforskende og mindre mainstream Norah Jones,
og PJ Harvey.

THRIFTSTORE MASTERPIECE 5. JULI
TROUBLE IS A LONESOME TOWN
Side One Dummy
SD1523 / SD1523-1
CD/LP
0603967152326 / 0603967152319
Produsent og bandleder Charles Normal har under navnet Thriftstore Masterpiece
samlet storfolk som Pete Yorn, Frank Black, Isaac Brock, Courtney Taylor-Taylor
og Art Bruts Eddie Argos for å gjøre hyllest til Lee Hazlewoods klassiske
debut, Trouble is a Lonesome Town. Den amerikanske utgivelsesdatoen faller
på det som ville ha vært Hazlewoods 83-årsdag (9. juli) og albumet er av det
respektfulle, og ikke minst, svært lytteverdige slaget.

BLACK TUSK 19. JULI
TEND NO WOUNDS EP
Relapse
RR7225-2 / RR7225-1
CD/LP
0781676722525 / 0781676722518
Black Tusk kommer i likhet med Kylesa fra Savannah, Georgia og sannelig om ikke
soundet deres også har mange likhetstrekk med bysbarna der de blander klassisk
southern rock med metal, hardrock og annen tyngre materie.
Tend No Wounds er en seksspors EP som fungerer utmerket som ventepølse
før bandets neste fullengder er klar. Bandet har turnert med band som Kvelertak,
Mastodon og Baroness i den senere tid og anbefales da også til fans av disse.

PSYCHIC TEMPLE II
Asthmatic Kitty
AKR105 / AKR105LP
CD/LP
0656605610528 / 0711574758418
Psychic Temple II er Chris Schlarbs visjon om “a dream ensemble that could
never actually exist”, men han og venner som Sufjan Stevens og Castanets’
Ray Raposa m.fl. gjør sitt beste der de gjør låter som Joe Jacksons Steppin’ Out,
Zappas Sofa No. 2 og The Beach Boys’ ’Til I Die til sine egne.
Schlarb har for tidligere utgivelser fått masse ros i diverse kred-presse og NPR
kåret sågar hans I Heart Lung/Interoceans-album til et av de fem beste
jazzalbumene i 2008.

CHIG002CD / CHIG002LP
CD/LP
0656605423227 / 0656605423210
Utgivelse nummer to på den Justin Vernon-kuraterte Chigliak-labelen er Sarah
Siskinds folk-höydare Covered, originalt gitt ut i et lite opplag på CD i 2001.
En nøkkelspiller på platen er Bill Frisell og det var gjennom utforsking av hans
katalog Vernon kom over albumet: ”...by chance, I came across a copy of Covered
while digging into Frisell’s catalog, for I also have a deep admiration for the music
icon and couldn’t get enough of his work. Looking back, I had no idea how much this
album would shake me down; it quickly earned its place in my heart. I listened so
much from then on that I wore out several copies, all the while pondering how such
an amazing record could go largely unnoticed by the masses.” JUSTIN VERNON

Ashley Eriksson er kjent for mange fra twee pop-yndlingene LAKE, men er i
USA best kjent for kjenningsmelodien til Cartoon Network-smashen Adventure
Time, og har gjennom den blitt noe av et household name der borte. Colours er
dog en annen dans og inspirert av et besøk til Sverige har hun sammen med
produsent Tucker Martine laget et utsøkt pianobasert album som bl.a.
inkluderer hennes versjon av Ted Gärdestads Ett Stilla Regn.

Houndstooth er en relativt nystartet folkrock-kvintett som etter Ride Out the Dark

Arty electronica fra Portland-duoen Soft Metals som tidligere i år fikk oppmerksomhet for en cover av Throbbing Gristles Hot on the Heels of Love.
“Soft Metals bears traces of virtually every bleakly gliding descendant of Kraftwerk’s
O.G. synth-pop grooves, from gothic early-1980s new wave to house, techno, and
electroclash… eerie buzzes and disjointed rhythms chart a course somewhere near the
Knife’s still-unmatched 2006 dark-electronic landmark Silent Shout.” 7.5 PITCHFORK http://www.facebook.com/SOFTMETALS Tuba Records - Karl Johansgt. 6 - 0154 Oslo - Norway

Vi greier ikke å si det bedre enn Relapse selv, så: ”Coffins’ Relapse debut
‘The Fleshland’ has all the subtlety of Godzilla’s destruction of Tokyo.”.
Det japanske doom/death-monsteret har vokst fra kultband-status til et av de
ledende i sjangeren, og har blant annet inntatt hovedscenen på Roadburn.

from fans of all metal genres and maybe wider.” 83/100 KILL YOUR STEREO

In early 2003, a young writer/director contacted Explosions in the Sky requesting permission to
use one of their songs in his second film, All the Real Girls. The filmmaker was Texas native David
Gordon Green, and their music was a perfect companion to the elegiac score from fellow Texas
composer, David Wingo. That would be the first-ever film license for Explosions in the Sky.
Tracklist:
1. Fires
2. Theme From Prince Avalanche
3. Dear Madison
4. Passing Time
5. Rain
6. Alone Time
7. Hello, This Is Your House
8. Can’t We Just Listen To The Silence

15. Send Off
Fast-forward a decade: the band’s music has become an integral part of countless film and television programs (most notably Friday Night Lights and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly); Green is an
internationally renowned, impressively eclectic filmmaker (Pineapple Express, Snow Angels); and
Wingo is a highly acclaimed film composer (Mud, Take Shelter) and leader of rising indie-rock group,
Ola Podrida. They’ve all become very close friends, and that tight-knit friendship spawned Green’s
stirring new film, Prince Avalanche.
While watching the Super Bowl together, EITS drummer Chris Hrasky casually suggested that
Green use the scorched landscape of Bastrop State Park in Bastrop, TX as the backdrop for a film.
Green took the suggestion and ran with it, remaking the Icelandic indie comedy Either Way into an
understated dramatic comedy starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. In keeping with the low-key,
under-the-Hollywood-radar nature of the film, Green tapped Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo
to score the film.
In keeping with the spirit of the filmmaking process, the soundtrack to Prince Avalanche is a casual
affair, an earnest collaboration amongst friends recorded entirely in the living rooms of its composers.
Much like the film, the soundtrack stitches dozens of tiny moments of heartfelt brilliance into an emotionally resonant whole far more expansive than its intimate roots might imply. Explosions In The Sky
excel at making even the most mundane moments in everyday life seem downright revelatory. David
Wingo and David Gordon Green have made careers out of pulling off similar feats in film. It was only
a matter of time before these guys all collaborated, and Prince Avalanche delivers on the inspired
expectations of such a union.

Friends and fans of The Love Language songwriter and frontman Stuart McLamb have
learned to expect a lot, but rarely in a timely manner. Completing a triumvirate of spiritual transmissions spent lost (2009’s The Love Language) and found (2010’s Libraries),
2013’s Ruby Red exorcises the transient brilliance fostered by McLamb within the
sheetrock walls of the album’s namesake artist space.
Featuring over twenty musicians and straddling several time zones, The Love Language’s
lone puppeteer borrowed heavier equipment, and held on to it longer. Initiated in a windowless unit at the fabled Ruby Red, several failed attempts and false starts at a songwriting
spree landed McLamb and his engineer/case worker/boxing coach BJ Burton in
Black Mountain, North Carolina, consuming every square inch of a carpeted bungalow
located a few acres too close to their skittish neighbors. Soon after, Burton’s relocation
to Minneapolis effectively thrust McLamb from their shared nest, helping Ruby Red discover its inherent propensity for flight.
Ruby Red produces new standards for the Carolina pop songbook, finding The Love
Language as an extroverted community art project made by responsible citizens of a
loosely packed scene who know that McLamb will match whatever they contribute.
The heartbreak is over. Now we’re getting somewhere.

CD/LP
There were plenty of reasons for Londoner James Mathé to simply keep course after the release
of his well received debut album, Chemical Campfires in 2008 on Fence Records: a flourishing reputation as
one of Britain’s most exciting acoustic troubadours, a prominent spot in Johnny Flynn and Jose Gonzales’
backing bands, the roar of applause from the audience at a sold-out show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom
still ringing in his ears. But Mathé had other ideas. “I loved the acoustic scene, but knew it was not all I was
about,” he remembers. “So I dug out all my old Casiotone keyboards, drum machines and analogue synths
and just started writing.”
Bloodlines, then, is a compelling reinvention and sees Mathé’s emotive missives from young adulthood rewired into elegiac electronic anthems, dusted with huge spectral gasps of reverb and soul-wrenching
organ melodies. Unusually for such an electronic album, it was recorded on vintage analogue gear and
straight to tape. “I really fancied getting back to basics,” says Mathé “I was tired of trying to iron out all the
mistakes in modern production. I wanted to record live to tape, keeping all the mistakes in, warts and all.”
From the sultry ache of opener Bloodline – a nod to Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy
“about not picking up the bad habits of the generation before you”, says Mathé – to the Pharrell Williamsinspired urban crunch of ‘Turbine’, all the way to ‘The Load’, written when Mathé was indulging in his love of
Jurassic 5 era 90s hip hop, Bloodlines is a brilliantly varied listen that pulls and paws at your heartstrings.
If there’s a gloriously loose, tenebrous feel to songs like the blue-eyed electro-soul ‘Pagliacco’, it might have
something to do with the Londoner’s organic approach to song writing. “I just sit down with my dictaphone
and make sense of what comes out afterwards. The best stuff usually comes when I’m hungover or not really thinking. The minute I try to be clever with words, it just sounds shit,” Mathé laughs. Instead, the album’s
lyrics burn with a simple, poignant immediacy and Mathé sings them with touching, soulful grace.
Recently signed to iconic London label Memphis Industries (Field Music, POLIÇA, The Go!
Team, Dutch Uncles), Mathé is influenced by everything from soul men Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo and
Levon Helm to Dirty Projectors and Sufjan Stevens. Tender yet triumphant, Bloodlines marks Mathé as
one of Britain’s most versatile and adventurous artists. Following support slots with Junip and label mates
POLIÇA, Barbarossa will be performing live across the summer including festival slots at Glastonbury and
Bestival.

11. What Can We Do
After taking nearly a decade off following the release of Here’s to Shutting Up, Mac, Laura,
Jon, and Jim decided to shout it out again in 2010 with Majesty Shredding, an album
perfectly described by its own title. It’s a celebratory set of whoa-whoa-whoas from a
group so thrilled by making music together again that they can’t contain themselves.
The band’s forthcoming release, I Hate Music, is Majesty’s dark twin. It’s similarly aggressive—often moreso (see “Staying Home”)—and every bit as energetic. It reflects the joys
of a life spent immersed in music (“Me & You & Jackie Mittoo,” “Trees of Barcelona”), but
there’s a dark undercurrent as well. That title isn’t tongue-in-cheek, but it’s really more a
question than a statement: When you’re 20, lazy co-workers and romantic missteps
number among your biggest worries; two decades later, life’s bigger questions knock
louder and louder, demanding answers.
I Hate Music is an album about love more than anything else: love of life, love of living, love
of people, and yeah, love of music. It defies its own title so completely and diligently that it
never even seems like a fair fight: There’s no pain this deep or yearning this severe without
the type of love earned over a lifetime. “I hate music – what is it worth? / Can’t bring anyone back to this earth” goes the first line in “Me & You & Jackie Mittoo.” That song and its
ten companions can’t relive the past or resurrect those lost, but they can keep them close
enough to see and hear and celebrate. It’s dark in here, but if we conjure the right words
and sounds, maybe we’ll find our way out.

It’s a rare and beautiful thing when a band emerges fully formed, but it makes perfect sense
in the case of guitarist Daniel Hindman and keyboardist Sarah Versprille’s Pure Bathing Culture.
Having backed folk rock revisionist Andy Cabic in Vetiver, the New Yorkers partnered up and moved
West in 2011, settling in Portland, Oregon. Building off their past experiences as musical collaborators, in a short time the duo have created a sound that is undeniably their own: soaring synths, chiming
keyboards, and shimmering electric guitars move in lockstep with bouncing drum machines. Sarah’s
crystalline voice floats on top of it all with divine purpose. It’s a sound that looks back momentarily for
inspiration -- Talk Talk, Prefab Sprout, Cocteau Twins -- but then fixes its gaze firmly on the present.
Further developing the sound of their acclaimed four song, self-titled 2012 EP, at the start of
2013 they set out to record Moon Tides, their first full length album. Again, they chose to work with producer Richard Swift at his National Freedom studio in rural Cottage Grove, Oregon. Throughout 2012
Swift had called on the duo to help him with other studio projects (Versprille sings on Foxygen’s latest
LP and Hindman adds his sprawling guitar work to Damien Jurado’s excellent Marqopa) which only
helped to cement the threesome’s musical partnership.
Like the earlier sessions for the EP, they worked quickly in the studio and improvised parts
around the basic song structures that they’d carefully composed up in Portland. Dan explains, “Pretty
much all tracks (vocals and instruments) are all first or very early takes. Richard is kind of a stickler
about this and I actually don’t go in with a clean, pristine idea of what I’m going to play on guitar or any
other instrument for that matter, so there’s actually a lot of improvisation as far as performances in the
studio go.
”It’s this compassion and warmth in Pure Bathing Culture that set them apart. The music is
uplifting. It invites self-reflection. It never feels alienating. “Pendulum” is a perfect mid-tempo album opener that pulses and shines. Other standout tracks from the album -- “Dream The Dare”, “Twins”, “Scotty”
and “Golden Girl” -- are slices of reverb-drenched, soulful, danceable electropop, that musically and lyrically tap into an introspective worship of the natural and psychic mysteries that surround us. Pure Bathing
Culture’s debut album Moon Tides is optimistic modern music for souls who seek to explore the infinite.
