    All We Love We Leave Behind

    All We Love We Leave Behind is the latest album from Converge. Once again recorded and mixed by guitarist Kurt Ballou at his renowned Godcity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts, All We Love We Leave Behind is a no-frills Converge album that sees the band-which also features vocalist Jacob Bannon, bassist Nate Newton and drummer Ben Koller-eschewing fancy production techniques in order to create seventeen songs that work as a cohesive whole yet can also stand on their own. There's no artificial distortion, triggers, or Auto-Tune on this album, Ballou explains, it's all organic, it's real sounds that capture the way the band performs live.


    From the classic rock-inflected, guitar tapping madness of Sadness Comes Home to the technical acrobatics of Aimless Arrow and relentless assault of Shame In The Way, this is an extremely varied album that has enough sonic shifts to captivate each listener's attention. It's always been important for us to have a lot of dynamics in our music because no one wants to listen to a million miles an hour all the time, Bannon responds when asked about the melodic mid-tempo groove of a song like Coral Blue. I really enjoy that song, it has a lot of twists musically that aggressive songs don't usually have and that's something we take pride in.


    Lyrically Bannon approached All We Love We Leave Behind by once again writing about his own personal experiences, however there's no question that this time around his vocals are more direct and decipherable than they've been in the past. This is a personal record and all of the songs tell their own stories, Bannon explains. Every song is rooted in real life, documenting what I have experienced over the past few years. Correspondingly the title of the album is an apology letter to everything he has had to leave behind in order to pursue his path in art and music. Bannon explains that he feels like it's important to acknowledge these sacrifices in order to be a self aware individual.


    All of our albums are emotional but I feel this is our most potent album to date, Bannon continues. For me a songs like 'Predatory Glow' and 'Empty on the Inside' have a tone and resonance that communicates in a new way for our band, he adds, chalking up this ability to the fact that the group have become better songwriters by spending so much time on the road and in the studio perfecting their craft. Success to me is creating something that's moving and fulfilling and I truly feel both of those things when I experience this album from start to finish.


    Converge have always been the type of band that never fit into one subculture and the band credit that to the fact that since their 2001 landmark album Jane Doe they haven't had any member changes. I think because it's been the same four people for the past five records we've been able to really get comfortable with each other and develop our own personality, Ballou explains. I don't listen to much music outside of what we've recorded so I think we're more influenced by our own history of playing together than what's currently happening in any scene.


    In other words when Ballou explains that Converge is the kind of band who have always existed between worlds, it's not just lip service. We don't have one typical type of listener but they tend to be intelligent people who can make up their own minds about things. That works to our advantage because they're willing to go on this journey with us and follow along with whatever twists and turns we take them on, he summarizes. Ultimately All We Love We Leave Behind may not be the most straightforward musical journey you'll embark on but it's one that you'll revisit over and over again to relive prior experiences and simultaneously create new ones. It all begins now.

    Unloved And Weeded Out

    The previous Reflection Records version (available in Europe only) of this 12LP has been out of print for years.


    Converge are the underground's proven aggressive music pioneers. They fuse the most exciting elements of hardcore, metal, and punk rock together into ademented, non-definable hybrid. Their trademark approach is unmistakable, making them one of the most important bands active within the independent music scene today.


    Unloved and Weeded Out, is a collection of 14 rare, out of print and highly sought after early tracks from the band. All of the songs were remixed and remastered by acclaimed producer and member Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studios. Clocking in at just over 40 minutes, this rare material is essential to the ever growing Converge catalog.

    Meir

    180 Gram Vinyl - Gatefold Sleeve - Printed Innersleeves


    They're called punk and metal, but at their hearts Norwegian berserkers Kvelertak are the living, firebreathing embodiment of rock and roll.


    Since their formation in 2006, they've built a die-hard fan-base hungry for their utterly ferocious live shows that have already burned two flaming tire-tracks across the globe.
    Kvelertak's euphorically-received self-titled 2011 debut was iTunes 2011's US Metal Breakthrough Artist of The Year. Pitchfork described their sound as having monolithic walls of adrenal-gland-strangling sound while LA Weekly named frontman Erland Hjelvik #2 on their list of top ten metal frontmen (and women) under 30.


    Produced by Converge's Kurt Ballou, Kvelertak will release their highly anticipated sophomore album entitled Meir (which means more in English) .
    Unlike the majority of heavier bands, they sing in their native language, adding even more character to their already unique sound.

    Inheritance

    The Last Bison march forward with their full-length debut album Inheritance. The critically acclaimed seven-piece folk enclave transports listeners into the untamed heart of Virginia with sweet melodies and intricate instrumentation. These elements converge and yield the band's self-proclaimed mountaintop chamber sound.


    Channeling a rustic spirit through an artful amalgam of folk, classical, and rock, the group consistently sets itself apart. Ben Hardesty leads the Last Bison, and his dad Dan and sister Annah join him. Among the family are close friends Andrew and Jay Benfante, Teresa Totheroh, and Amos Housworth.


    In addition to the four songs from their Inheritance EP, the full album boasts another seven thoughtful sonic ponderings. With vivid lyrics, first single Switzerland echoes the beating heart of a world traveler seekingn shelter from the winter cold. Meanwhile, tracks like Autumn Snow and Quill prove to be pensive and poetic. The entire album remains an epic journey that's both intimate and expansive in scope.

    Dragged Down A Dead End Path

    Rarely does a debut record come bursting out of the gates this ferociously angry and, frankly, awesome. Stirring up a pissed off mix of Napalm Death and His Hero Is Gone, Colorado's Call Of The Void pound out a furious ten-song grand slam of a record. Dragged Down A Dead End Path truly lives up to its name, because this is a record that beats listeners into submission. Blending hardcore, sludge, powerviolence, crust and grind, Call Of The Void are legit rising stars in hardcore and metal. Dragged Down A Dead End Path's crust and grind elements seamlessly merge to conjure visions of grind godfathers Pig Destroyer while effortlessly treading the abrasive caustic nature of Converge's hybrid progressive hardcore and Mastodon's technical metal-tinged rock mastery.

    Dissociation

    Experimental metal outfit the Dillinger Escape Plan have announced a new album, Dissociation, out via Party Smashers Inc./Cooking Vinyl America. Among the producers who worked on the album was Converge's Kurt Ballou, who mixed it at GodCity in Boston. Along with the announcement, the band have shared the record's first single, "Limerent Death." In a press release, guitarist Ben Weinman called the track one of his "all-time favorite DEP songs."


    In the same press release, the band - which formed in 1997 - announced that Dissociation is "potentially" their last release before they go on an "extended hiatus" when they finish touring. In a new interview with Noisey, Weinman (who is an original member of the band) elaborated on the decision. He said, "I think in some ways we wanted to pull a 'Seinfeld' and go out while we're still on top."

    Nothing For Us Here

    Cult Leader are the next evolutionary leap forward for three-quarters of Gaza, arguably one of the best metallic bands of the last decade. After the early 2013 dissolution of the aforementioned band, remaining members Michael Mason, Casey Hansen, and Anthony Lucero were joined by bassist Sam Richards to form this brand new beast.


    Nothing For Us Here is a complex crusher as you would expect. Brilliantly heavy, technical musicianship complimented by Anthony Lucero's newfound brutal vocal delivery (previously he played bass in Gaza). All of it coming together as an unconventional tangle of metal/hardcore/punk wreckage. Proving that even in their primordial state, Cult Leader are capable of standing as contemporaries Converge and Coalesce as new monsters of the aggressive music genre.

The first release from Red horse, the exciting new supergroup in the tradition of the late 1990s ensemble Cry, Cry, Cry! The trio has created a new project awash in great harmony singing and songwriting.

    Ramming Speed have signed to Prosthetic Records, and, surprisingly enough, crafted the follow-up to 2008s Brainwreck full-length.


    Titled Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die and tracked by Converge studio wizard Kurt Ballou, Ramming Speed's second will catapult them from cult, from-the-corner thrash act to recognized purveyors of NWOBHM/grind hybrid.

    Bleeder

    Bleeder was recorded by drummer Ben Koller's Converge bandmate Kurt Ballou at his GodCity studio in Salem, MA. While Helium Head was recorded as a duo, the upcoming LP expands the original lineup of Koller and vocalist/guitarist Stephen Brodsky to include bassist Nick Cageao. The album is said to have bigger production, increased ferocity, and the bolstered confidence from writing as a three-piece unit, offering up everything from hardcore, to NWOBHM-styled arrangements, to sludge. The album's 1000 Mile Stare and Soft Spot in My Skull apparently blend thrash with King Crimson-minded prog, while other touchstones include Ronnie James Dio-period Black Sabbath.

    Shadow of the Sun


    Comes With 7 Featuring Lead Single "Animal" & Vinyl-Exclusive B-Side "Fadeaway"


    Moon Duo began work on their latest album during a period in which they
    faced a curious new reality. Freed from deadlines and expectations, and suddenly
    off the road for a stretch, Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada found themselves
    each experiencing strange shifts in their perceptions of reality. Like the beginning
    of an acid trip, or the edge of dusk, when shadows converge mysteriously with
    light, life began to slip into a surreal dream, and then back, suddenly, without
    warning. Unstable in these strange shadows and light, the band turned to music
    to tether themselves to a kind of working sanity.


    Shadow of the Sun is the result of a few months of wrangling with this new unsettling
    way of being. Working both in a dark basement in Portland, and above
    ground in sunny San Francisco, these new sounds and songs veered dramatically
    from groove to groove, revealing sonic textures the duo had not previously
    explored. The song "Night Beat," with its woozy dance rhythm, is an attempt at
    finding joy and acceptance on this new, shifting ground, while "Wilding" plays
    off the familiar Moon Duo sound, taking refuge in a repetitive, grounding
    riff-scape. Elsewhere the band gives itself entirely up to the trip, cruising along
    on the fuzzed rhythms of "Slow Down Low" and "Free the Skull," crashing into
    the clenched-teeth herky-jerk of "Zero," and floating down, down, down, on the
    narcotic mist of "In a Cloud."


    To further coat the album in a fog of stoned confusion, the duo decamped to
    Berlin to mix with Finnish beat-meister Jonas Verwijnen of Kaiku Studios. There
    they managed to entirely reverse the clarity of the album, increasing the overall
    focus, and creating an unorthodox argument for sanity through extreme negation
    of proper technique and conventionality.


    The result, at the end of the trip, is the album Shadow of the Sun.

    Remembrance

    Remembrance is the Software Recording Co. debut from Baton
    Rouge's Suicideyear (born James Prudhomme). Written and
    produced between Florida and Louisiana during the summer and
    fall of 2013, Remembrance recalls those southern U.S. landscapes
    and Prudhomme's experiences across eight songs equally
    intimate, intoxicating and mercurial.


    We first fell in love with Suicideyear by way of his Japan mixtape, a
    remarkable convergence of ATL trap beats and mid-late century
    American minimalism that turned and twisted more than a few
    heads. Software's own label head Daniel Lopatin was privy to an
    eerily similar convergence at an All Tomorrow's Parties festival one
    year earlier in which two performers, Big Boi and Terry Riley,
    converged at a nearby Burger King. When James revealed his
    childhood adoration for Speakerboxxx, we knew it was on.


    Prudhomme wrote Remembrance while reflecting on themes of
    love and loss against the backdrop of the deep American south he
    calls home. Remembrance deals with letting go, Prudhomme
    explains. The name stems from my attempt to accept the loss
    and difficulty of the past year without dwelling, instead trying to
    move on.


    James' experiences of reflection and resolution led to the vivid,
    emotionally charged production that makes up Remembrance.
    Alive with an idiosyncratic sense of melodic space, his repertoire
    eschews a topical palette for a personal aesthetic that offers a
    visceral love letter to abstraction. Prudhomme references both
    forms we know to exist ("Caroline", "U S" and "When You Sleep")
    and speculates on how they can be newly realized ("I Don't Care
    About Death Because I Smoke" and "Hope Building A").


    Remembrance proves a mature turn for Prudhomme without
    discounting his wisdom - and experience - already beyond his
    years. His obsessive focus on construction, attention to detail and
    elusive self-reflection is embodied in a music devoid of language.
    That it speaks so clearly tells us its the real thing.

    Miscontinuum Album

    Miscontinuum Album documents an impressive new work by seminal electronic musician Jan St. Werner, whose innovations with Mouse on Mars and Microstoria are well documented. This album is the third entry in Werner's lauded Fiepblatter Catalogue series, and features contributions from Dylan Carlson (Earth), Markus Popp (Oval), Taigen Kawabe (Bo Ningen), and Kathy Alberici. Miscontinuum Album is a radical convergence of sound exploration and storytelling that has few precedents. It is a dark gothic electronic work whose dense layers reveal more with each listen.

    All We Grow

    The debut album from S. Carey, All We Grow, is the result of a young lifetime spent immersed in music. As a band member of Bon Iver from the very beginning, Sean Carey witnessed a flip of his formal training to step firmly into a worldwide-touring rock band. His performance degree in classical percussion from the University of Wisconsin and his love for jazz drumming prepared him for a central role in the inspiring force of the Bon Iver live show.


    All We Grow is a convergence of Carey's Waltz For Debby-era Bill Evans inflected jazz tendencies, and traditional rock band experience, taking leads from Mark Hollis' Talk Talk. It also retests the waters of modern classical composition, investigating the moodiness generated by percussive repetition in a manner familiar to fans of Steve Reich. In his downtime on tour with Bon Iver, Sean would spend time composing. During infrequent tour breaks at home he would patiently record these pieces, adding layers eachtime. Two years later, the parts converged to make an album.


    For as much room to breathe as Carey allows his compositions, there are incredibly dynamic moments of bombast held right next to moments of subtle depth and texture. Engineered by Jaime Hansen and Brian Joseph, intermittently at home and at April Base (Justin Vernon's studio outside Eau Claire), All We Grow is an all-encompassing headphone experience as intimate as chamber music and as ambitious as a symphony.

    Crosby, Stills and Nash

    Ranked 259/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    One of the most enduring musical partnerships of our time, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) are revered for their peerless vocal harmonies, inspired songwriting and musical virtuosity. When the trio first sang together at a friends Laurel Canyon house in 1968, their uncanny harmonic convergence was immediately apparent, and CSN took shape. Each member came to the new venture from other high-profile bands, Crosby from the Byrds, Stills from Buffalo Springfield and Nash from the Hollies, and together they formed that rarest of musical entities, a supergroup that lived up to its billing.


    CSNs stunning 1969 self-titled debut album is one of the true masterpieces of the rock n roll canon. The album made it all the way to #6 on the Billboard charts and delivered two Top 40 Pop singles with Marrakesh Express and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes. Also features the CSN classics Guinnevere, Wooden Ships, Helplessly Hoping and Long Time Gone.


    Crosby, Stills & Nash are a most important part of the brilliant history at Atlantic Records. The uniqueness of their vocal blend, as well as the uniqueness of each solo voice, made them the top vocal group in the world, and they are still today thrilling millions of fans they have accumulated over the years.

    White Mountain

    Having played in various bands including Swords of Chaos and in Jónsi's touring band, White Mountain is Úlfur Hansson's debut under his own name. With influences ranging from cult cinema, esoteric literature and contemporary music, Úlfur presents a unique twist on the supernatural. In his own words:


    Every track is a collage of field-recordings made while travelling. I met so many interesting people on the road (for instance, Alexandra of Mountain Man who did amazing vocals for So Very Strange) and I always carry my tape recorder with me like a camera. Some tracks are composed of beats made from my cousin throwing rocks into a pond out in the sticks in Iceland, converging with some birds I met in Chigaco. It makes this album extremely personal to me, remembering things like that and helps me achieve greater depth with the programming aspect of it. I guess i'm searching for a more
    living breathing sound for completely electronic music.


    The title is an homage to Rene Daumal's Mount Analogue, as well as Alejandro Jodorowski's film Holy Mountain, but also something else Each individual sound has a very special memory attached to it, so the album creates these nostalgic nonexistent spaces, hidden places - an amalgamation of instances, situations that couldn't possibly exist. I imagine this White Mountain, an invisible imaginary place - a sacred place on the horizon. Maybe like a connection to the the universe above. An analogy of the journey of Man.

    Cut Yourself Free

    On the heels of last years critically acclaimed debut LP, Under the Pale Moon, and Earth Has Doors EP comes the sophomore full length from Wymond Miles, guitarist of San Francisco garage-pop titans The Fresh & Onlys.


    Cut Yourself Free assembles another convergence of moon-lit romantic swagger and post-punk massacred
    urgency. Again self recorded and produced to tape, Miles' song-craft has emerged more refined and poignant, benefitting from the avalanche of his frenzied live shows, but also adhering to a more minimalistic fashion with crooning mid-era Nick Cave or Bowie/Roxy Music strains of pop-modernism. But what stands at the forefront is Miles' command of his textural guitar and vintage-synth sprawl
    that on his choosing can open dream-like vistas, or pierce with an engine's snarl.


    Turning to the narrative, Miles weaves each song with its own vignette of story line, often with a vaguely obscured protagonist/antagonist dialog. Relationships in Miles' sketches are always tangled, if not licentious affairs, but are presented more
    as lustrous gateways to mend and revitalize rather than squalor in.

    St. Carolyn By The Sea / Suite From 'There Will Be Blood'

    Dessner: St. Carolyn By The Sea; Greenwood: Suite From 'There Will Be Blood'


    Never before have classical and rock converged in such an organic, compelling and sensual way as they do in the three short orchestral works written by and featuring The National guitarist Bryce Dessner on his new release St. Carolyn by the Sea, performed with the Copenhagen Phil and conducted by Andree de Ridder.


    Dessner presents three pieces of modern classical music, written from the perspective of a rock musician who is keenly aware of the raw emotional impact music any music can have on an audience. He draws on elements from Baroque and folk music, late Romanticism and modernism, minimalist music and the blues, among others, as well as referencing the work of such legendary figures as John Fahey, La Monte Young, Bela Bartook, Glenn Branca, Benjamin Britten, Morton Feldman, Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Despite this broad spectrum of influences, his voice remains individual and distinct.


    With this album, which also showcases a suite drawn from Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwoods soundtrack for There Will Be Blood, Bryce Dessner and Jonny Greenwood open up a new frontier for symphonic music.
