CD/LP
Portland er som kjent et av de mest spennende stedene for nye favoritter
for tiden og her kommer enda en: Pure Bathing Culture, en duo bestående
av Daniel Hindman og Sarah Vesprille fra Vetiver. Guardian beskriver
dem på følgende måte: ”Recalling the gauzy, sun-dappled haze of Beach
House and the dreamier side of Fleetwood Mac”. Akkurat det er en linje
tekst som i alle fall overbeviser oss og noen lytt på platen backer
den engelske avisens utsagn perfekt opp.
”…a blissful and quietly cosmic experience” 4/5 Q

album too wintry” 8/10 UNCUT 4/5 THE GUARDIAN

Disappears mørke blanding av drivende kraut, garasjerock og shoegaze
har lenge vært favoritter i kred-pressen og med Era fortsetter de å imponere tross flere utskiftninger i besetningen siden sist. For nye lyttere kan
bandets sound løst beskrives som en reise fra Suicide via Sonic Youth og
My Bloody Valentine til samtiden, og av kontemporære, sammenlignbare
band kan for eksempel A Place To Bury Strangers nevnes.

CD/LP
Mandolin Orange, en North Carolina-duo som opererer innen Appalachias
old timey-tradisjon og som gjør akkurat det svært godt. På This Side of
Jordan er de dessuten backet av et framifrå band som mykt støtter opp
under de flotte vokalarbeidene. En naturlig sammenligning er Gillian
Welch og David Rawlings og andre navn som kan trekkes frem når man
skal prate Mandolin Orange er The Civil Wars, Nickel Creek og Alison
Krauss.

0634457608528 / 0634457608511
Duoen Sarah Lee Guthrie og Johnny Irion har siden 2005 gitt oss nydelig tradisjonell folk, og på Wassaic Way får vi mer av nettopp dette. Platen ble spilt inn av
Wilcos Jeff Tweedy og Pat Sansone i deres Loft i Chicago og de, samt Wilcobassist John Stirratt, Spencer Tweedy og andre, er med på instrumenter og vokal.
Fine greier.
“…an album that captures Guthrie and Irion’s remarkable melodic strengths
and marries them to Tweedy and Sansone’s sympathetic and beautifully
shaped production.” 3.5/5 AMERICAN SONGWRITER

Youth/Polvo/Dinosaur Jr.-lignende fuzz-indie. Bandet var nær ved å legge gitarene
på hylla, men en invitasjon fra Michael Azerrad til å spille på et Our Band Could
Be Your Life-arrangement sammen med St. Vincent, Wye Oak og Dan Deacon
ga dem en ny boost. Vi takker Azerrad for det.

MRG486 / MRG486LP

CD/LP
It has been a lengthy hiatus, but we have finally finished our latest “masterpiece” and
named it after an incredible indigenous-rights movement that is happening right now called
Idle No More. I was born and raised in Montreal and spent a lot of time on the Kahnawake
Mohawk Indian reservation.
Tracklist:
1. Born to Die
2. Bite My Tongue
3. Thorn in Her Pride
4. Luckiest Man
5. Better Luck Next Time
6. Darkness
7. Pray for Lil
8. Bad Boy
9. So Wild
10. Yes I Can’t
11. I Got Made
12. Of Madness I Dream
Idle No More is probably the most refined piece of music we have made to date.
The songs are about the state of the world we live in today.
Originally, I was going to call the album Of Madness I Dream, but then I became very
enthused about the amazing work of the Idle No More movement. Everyone I asked had
never heard of it, so I contacted the leaders of the movement and, with their permission,
decided to rename the album Idle No More in hopes that it would increase the world’s
awareness of this miracle that is taking place for the indigenous peoples of the world.
If you are not familiar with Idle No More, look it up and GET INVOLVED!
It took a long time to make, but we are very proud and pleased to bring you this album.
I hope that the future will brighten up every time it is played. Ultimately, John and Yoko
were absolutely right: LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED!
Peace and Love,
King Bama Lama Khan

Incident:
I packed up most of the familiar and brought in a few new sound dispensers and bearding effects
with certain re-enactors in mind. Restraints suggested surrender, though, so I sent the scraps
to a magician for repurposing.

2. When You Tell Me How It Is
3. Beautiful Question
4. Foundation
5. Portrait
6. Mood
7. Go
8. Cut
9. Lean-To
Synopsis:
Part I. An insomniac waits, armed with redactions as
Part II. Morning arrives in a prosecuting funk with a pack of frequently-lost answers.
Part III. Silhouettes are staged in the recesses while the interrogator bears down.
Part IV. The subject is declared evanescent
Part V. and the sentence is reduced to a simmering loop.
Resume:
1964-1985:
Born to transients and miseducated in 30 locations.
1986-1993:
Exhaled on both coasts while failing to write.
1994:
Traipsed into the hamster wheel with a first release.
1995-2006:
Spun out, locked horns, drove around and remembered none of it.
2007-2010:
Tooled in indoor erosion and root rot for a silenced score.
2011-2012:
Took up avalanche-embracing.
2013:
Surrounded.

Meric Long and Logan Kroeber recorded The Dodos new album, Carrier, in their
hometown of San Francisco. After guitarist Chris Reimer passed away in early 2012,
The Dodos reassessed everything about the band - in particular Long’s songwriting.
“Chris was a huge influence on the way I think about guitar, songwriting, and music in
general,” reveals Long. “Seeing how he could transform and shape sound with an electric
guitar inspired me to explore more tones and use those tones to begin writing a song.”
And so, when he began to formulate the tracks that would ultimately comprise Carrier,
Long employed two principles he inherited from Reimer: patience to let a song develop
and a judgment-free enthusiasm for sound.

Yep Roc
YEP2348 / YEP2348LP
0634457234826 / 0634457234819
CD/LP
In just a few weeks, the heralded hit-maker and swamp-rocker Tony Joe White will enter
his seventh decade. After more than fifty years of playing music, handfuls of chart topping
singles, and collaborations with some of the most revered musicians of the century, White
is set to release a brand new album, Hoodoo, via Yep Roc.
Tracklist:
1) The Gift
2) Holed Up
3) Who You Gonna Hoodoo Now?
4) 9 Foot Sack
5) Alligator, Mississippi
6) The Flood
7) Storm Comin’
8) Gypsy Epilogue
9) Sweet Tooth
Hoodoo features autobiographical songs about his life growing up on farm and learning
the blues (“9 Foot Sack”), cautionary tales of rural Mississippi (“Alligator, Mississippi”), and
a tale of his trek homeward after the Nashville flood of 2010 (“The Flood”). Despite his
illustrious past, White feels no pressure to top himself. “There’s not a push nowhere,” he
concludes. “Maybe I’ll stop playing shows and making records when the songs quit coming
to me. But they still come to me. You see, I don’t work for a song-but once I get a hold of it
I don’t let go. I just keep writing, and when I do, I want to go out and play it for somebody.
It’s the songwriting that keeps me going.”

Consisting of brothers Dallas and Travis Good, drummer Mike Belitsky and upright
bassist Sean Dean, The Sadies’ inspired culmination of psychedelia, country and western
and instrumental rock has made them the preeminent torchbearers of cosmic Canadiana
music. Internal Sounds was recorded in Toronto. Though Gary Louris was an integral
part in making the album, it was produced by Dallas Good. “There was a conscious effort
to deliver a finished product that wouldn’t suffer from a deadline or budget. We recorded
this record over a span of a year, in session for twenty plus days. By the end, we’d spent
every dime we had and used up every favour. There is usually a sense of immediacy to our
records, maybe because we make a lot of them. I didn’t want that this time” says Good.
This time, Peter J. Moore was enlisted to mix with The Sadies, a first for them. Internal
Sounds also welcomes Canadian legend Buffy Sainte-Marie who contributes her
haunting voice to the closing track “We Are Circling”.
The Sadies continue working to make a greater live show and better albums, integrity
intact. Internal Sounds is The Sadies continuing to grow, and getting better with each step
