    Currents (Black Vinyl)

    Currents will be released by Interscope Records. It's the highly anticipated third full length from the
    much loved Australian band and the follow up to 2012's Innerspeaker. A top live draw and critical darling, the group was a smash at Coachella this April and will headline Lollapalooza and Outside Lands. Accolades for the new songs include "Best New Music" (Pitchfork) and glowing reviews from Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Rolling Stone, and more.

    Currents

    First Pressing Limited to 1500 on Blue-Green Haze Vinyl

    Includes Download Card with WAV Files


    The album was self-recorded and self-produced in their home studio in Tyler, TX - the band's first time recording completely independently, which proved to be a rejuvinating and rewarding process.


    The new album sees Eisley's signature tapestry of rich harmonies, delicately woven over the band's most intricate instrumentations yet. The relaxed, creative setting also allowed for the band's most collaborative effort to date, seeing more prominent bass and guitar lines than ever before, a song written and sung by lead guitarist Chauntelle DuPree-D'Agostino (her first ever full-song solo lead vocal performance), and guest performances from Merriment and Say Anything's Max Bemis.


    "Currents is honestly the first time we've had total and complete free reign over the making of one of our records and it felt so liberating. We were able to dig deeper musically; There are lusher arrangements and more abstract themes. I feel like we really were able to experiment this time in the studio while still enjoying doing what we love which is essentially writing pop songs," explains vocalist/guitarist Sherri DuPree-Bemis.


    "I think our fans have always appreciated that Eisley doesn't sound exactly like every other band and I think we've succeeded in taking that element a bit further on this record. We're more confident as a band than we have ever been. I think the people that have always loved the darker, whimsical side of our sound will be very pleased with the songs on this record while the people who have enjoyed what's melodic, simple and sweet about Eisley will be quite pleased as well. The title Currents, to me, is relevant to how we feel as a band at this point in our career. The current is constantly moving and flowing no matter what and that's what we've always done together and plan to keep doing."

    All The Light Above It Too

    Jack Johnson has announced that his next album is called All the Light Above It Too. The album features the slyly political lead single My Mind Is for Sale.

    This album shares what has been on my mind during the past year or so, says Johnson in a statement. A year in which I sailed through the North Atlantic Gyre -- a circular system of ocean currents -- for a documentary about plastic pollution in the ocean. A year in which [Donald] Trump was elected as the President of the United States.

    A year in which I camped, surfed, got stitches, explored, dreamed, shared time and endless conversations with my family and friends, he continues. All of which inspired these songs.

    Hard Times And Nursery Rhymes

    Legendary Punk Rock Band's 1st Studio Record Since 2004



    Group Embraces Gritty, Soulful Currents on Can't-Miss Set



    Social Distortion's first new studio record in nearly six years, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes builds on singer Mike Ness twin footings, one in the haunted American landscapes of Hank Williams and the other in the raw swagger of Exile On Main Streetâ€era Rolling Stones. While these twin pillars have always been behind Social Distortions anthemic songs, on Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes they come roaring to the fore, in one of the hardest rocking, most soulful albums of Ness career.



    From opener California (Hustle and Flow), a song with enough attitude to redline a 40 Merc, to the dark rockin cover of Hank Williams' Alone and Forsaken, longtime fans will find the trademark punk roar they love. New fans, too, will be drawn to Ness maturing songwriting and vocals with an eye to his rock and roll legacy. Ness also produced Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes (his first time at the production helm).



    Cigar-puffing hoodlums, sleazy pimps, staggering winos, down-and-out blue-collar stiffs, on-the-run hustlers, wounded romantics, and spurned lovers are among the crowds that congregate on the street corners of Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, one of the most consistent, complete, soulful, and tunefully gritty records of Social Distortions career. The set reflects the groups progressive embrace of organ into arrangements. As such, subtle spiritual undercurrents coarse through several tunes.

    Reads Kaddish - A 20th Century American Ecstatic Narrative Poem

    Pressed On Red Colored Vinyl


    Along with Howl, Kaddish stands as one of Allen Ginsberg's most illustrious creations. Always a follower of popular trends in music, Ginsberg had spent parts of 1958 digging into Ray Charles' "I Got A Woman" - occasionally doing so while on morphine and methamphetamine. One evening, in this drug-induced state while cranking some Ray, Ginsberg began discussing his mother Naomi with his pal Zev Putterman. Putterman in turn, began reciting the traditional Hebrew "Kaddish" prayer for mourning the dead. Soon after, fueled by Dexedrine, LSD, and caffeine, Allen penned the majority of Kaddish. In early 1959, Kaddish received its debut performance at a poetry reading at Columbia University - in which Allen shared the bill with his lover Peter Orlovsky and fellow beat poet Gregory Corso. Over time, the manuscript was tweaked and adjusted until publication in April 1961 by City Lights. Then, in November 1964, with Orlovsky and Corso in tow, the trio performed several gigs at Harvard and Brandeis Universities, and it was at Brandeis where this recording was made. Released in 1966, Kaddish turned out to be the only record in Atlantic's spoken-word Verbum series; but if label head Jerry Wexler changed his mind about the imprint, he remained a big fan of the work, later telling Los Angeles historian Harvey Kubernik that Kaddish had stirred "the Yiddish currents in my own blood" and inspired "joy and anguish the exaltation that great poetry will bring on." Indeed, Kaddish is an intensely personal and moving work, capturing the complex relationship between Ginsberg, his mother, and his faith, and concluding with a heartrending description of her death. Real Gone Music is very proud to present the first-ever vinyl reissue of this landmark performance, in its original gatefold packaging with an added inner sleeve featuring new liner notes by Pat Thomas and memorabilia provided by the Allen Ginsberg estate over an hour of one of the towering figures in American poetry reading one of his greatest works.

    Instrumentals

    Remastered Double LP With 12-Page Booklet


    Includes Liner Notes By Tim Lawrence, Ernie Brooks And Arthur Russell


    All Material Previously Released On The Audika CD Compilation First Thought Best Thought


    Before Disco, and before the transcendent echoes, Arthur wanted to be a composer.


    His journey began in 1972, leaving home in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Heading west to Northern California, Arthur studied Indian classical composition at the Ali Akbar Khan College of Music followed by western orchestral music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, before ending two years later in New York at the Manhattan School of Music.


    Traversing the popular and the serious, Arthur composed "Instrumentals" in 1974, inspired by the photography of his Buddhist teacher, Yuko Nonomura, as Arthur described, "I was awakened, or re-awakened to the bright-sound and magical qualities of the bubblegum and easy-listening currents in American popular music".


    Initially intended to be performed in one 48 hour cycle, "Instrumentals" was in fact only performed in excerpts a handful of times as a work in progress.


    The legendary performances captured live in New York at The Kitchen (1975 and 1978) and Franklin St. Arts Center (1977) feature the cream of that eras downtown new music scene including Ernie Brooks, Rhys Chatham, Julius Eastman, Jon Gibson, Peter Gordon, Garrett List, Andy Paley, Bill Ruyle, Dave Van Tieghem, and Peter Zummo.


    Pitchfork lauded "Instrumentals" Vol. 1 as a masterpiece and one of Arthur's "greatest achievements". Americana touching on Copeland, Ives, and maybe even Brian Wilson. "Instrumentals" Vol. 2 is a moving, deeply pastoral work performed by the CETA Orchestra and conducted by Julius Eastman.


    Also included are two of Arthur's most elusive compositions, Reach One, and Sketch For "Face Of Helen". Recorded live in 1975 at Phill Niblock's Experimental Intermedia Foundation, Reach One is a minimal, hypnotic ambient soundscape written and performed for two Fender Rhodes pianos. Sketch For "Face Of Helen" was inspired by Arthur's work with friend and composer Arnold Dreyblatt, recorded with an electronic tone generator, keyboard and ambient recordings of a rumbling tugboat from the Hudson River.


    For this remastered vinyl edition, a key part of Arthur's musical life has been restored. The sparkling, multidimensional results take the listener closer to Arthur's coast-to-coast journey: his iconoclastic determination to combine pop and art music; and his desire to make music that would resonate in the present and, ultimately, across time.

    AudioQuest JitterBug USB Filter


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    AudioQuest's new dual-function JitterBug is a USB
    line (VBUS) and signal (data) filter. JitterBug
    follows the footsteps of our award-winning,
    category-defining DragonFly USB DAC, and our
    best-in-class, USB, Ethernet, FireWire and
    Thunderbolt digital interconnects, promising the
    next step forward in high-performance computeraudio
    playback.


    While USB (along with Ethernet) has become one
    of the two most important and widely adopted
    interfaces in the age of computer audio, it does
    come with its own unique sets of liabilities-mainly
    sound-degrading noise currents. All computing
    devices, whether they be laptops, phones, NAS or
    even dedicated "music servers," inherently
    generate a significant amount of noise and
    parasitic resonances. In addition to this, many
    computers (the least offensive being laptops, as
    they are required to meet rigorous safety
    standards) can and often do contribute a
    considerable amount or RFI and EMI pollution
    onto the signal paths-all of which can easily find
    its way onto your USB cables and into your audio
    system. This noise and interference has many
    negative effects. Noise-compromised digital
    circuitry increases jitter (dispersion in time) and
    packet errors, resulting in distortion that causes a
    comparatively flat and irritating sound. Noisecompromised
    analog circuitry also damages the
    sound's depth, warmth, and resolution.


    Fortunately, AudioQuest has devised a solution for
    dealing with these liabilities. JitterBug's
    dual-circuitry measurably reduces unwanted noise
    currents and parasitic resonances. It also reduces
    jitter and packet errors (in some cases, packet
    errors are completely eliminated.) The result is
    clearer, more compelling sound, music, and
    dialogue - a better audio experience.


    Slightly smaller than our DragonFly USB DAC, and
    with a handsome, unassuming appearance,
    JitterBug has a USB (male) plug on one end and a
    USB (female) port on the opposite. For those who
    already own DragonFly, JitterBug will be a fun and
    affordable upgrade: Simply plug JitterBug into any
    one of a computer's available USB ports, then
    plug DragonFly into JitterBug's USB port.


    But JitterBug is far more than an obvious partner
    for DragonFly. In fact, its versatility may very
    well match that of the USB standard itself:
    JitterBug can be successfully used with external
    USB DACs ranging from the very modest to the
    absolute state of the art. Simply plug JitterBug
    into an available USB port, and use a USB cable
    to connect JitterBug to the DAC of choice.


    Many computers include more than one USB
    port. For additional
    improvement to a system's
    overall sound, a second
    JitterBug can be used in parallel
    (but not in series) with the first.
    The improvement is audible
    through the active audio port,
    whether or not the second
    JitterBug fills an empty USB
    port, or is used in series with
    some other peripheral, such as
    a printer. Note: We recommend
    no more than two JitterBug
    filters per USB bus. If you do
    not know how many USB buses
    exist on a given device, err on the side of
    caution: Presume that there is a single bus and
    use no more than two JitterBugs.


    JitterBug can also be used with mobile phones,
    portable media devices, USB peripherals, and
    network storage/streaming devices. Many
    receivers, DACs, and automobiles include USB
    input ports that are compatible with iOS and
    Android devices, enabling music lovers to use
    their mobile phones or USB memory sticks as
    audio sources. By first plugging a JitterBug into
    the associated USB input port, the playback
    performance of such media devices can be
    significantly improved. In cases where a noisy
    external computer peripheral (such as a printer,
    camera, or hard drive) must be connected to a
    computer-audio system, JitterBug can be used in
    series with the peripheral
    device. Similarly, streamers,
    Network Attached Storage
    devices, and routers may all
    include USB ports, and all can
    benefit from JitterBug's noise
    filtering-again, regardless of
    whether the associated port has
    a device connected to it.


    Simply put, JitterBug's
    dual-circuitry measurably
    reduces the noise and ringing
    that plague both the data and
    power lines of USB ports. As
    with many things in audio, the effect of
    JitterBug on the overall sound of a system may
    vary slightly, depending on the associated gear
    and application. Experimentation is
    enthusiastically encouraged. The results will
    likely prove more than worth the effort.


    At JitterBug's modest price of $49, the question
    isn't whether your customers can afford it, but
    whether they can afford not to use one or two.

    Rega Elex-R Amplifier

    40th



    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    The Elex-R is a sublime blend of the Brio-R design with the power circuits and advanced phono stage of the Elicit-R. Rega's engineers have achieved the perfect balance of power, control and dynamics, delivering a performance that always puts the music first.


    You will find plenty of connectivity options allowing complete flexibility and integration within the rest of the Rega range.


    Design Innovation


    The Elex-R is built to the highest standard and designed to deliver the best possible audio performance whilst remaining simple to use and easy to setup.The Elex-R is built into the full width Rega case with increased heat dissipation, which along with a larger transformer enables the Elex-R to deliver 90 Watts per channel into 6 and 72.5 Watts per channel into a design centre rating of 8.


    Our time, effort & money have been spent on developing the circuit and construction utilizing the highest specification of components throughout. As part of the design we have included useful features like pre-amplifier output, to enable the new Elex-R amplifier to be used in a wide combination of systems and have avoided superfluous gadgets such as tone controls or a headphone socket as they can obstruct the signal path and degrade the produced sound quality.


    The Elex-R has been built to Rega's extremely high standards of reliability and quality to ensure many years of musical enjoyment. The primary function of an amplifier is to boost and equalize the low level signal generated by a phono cartridge, DAC and CD player or other source component to a level that can drive the loudspeakers. It is vital that the amplifier achieves this whilst minimising distortion, as this would directly affect the music. The distortion level is typically 0.007%; just under the clipping of the output.


    The volume control and pre-amplifier used in the Elex-R is designed to overcome the problems associated with the standard arrangement. This design uses a custom chip along with peripheral support IC's like a microcontroller and a custom made rotary volume control.


    The Elex-R uses a combined feedback and passive volume control, where the feedback and input levels are varied to set the required volume level. The level and tracking between the two channels is set by the close tolerance parts in the pre-amplifier circuit and less by the actual potentiometer itself, thus keeping the mismatch of channels due to volume control tracking irregularities to a minimum.As well as keeping tracking irregularities to a minimum, this method also reduces noise and input overload as the control will only 'use' the required gain to amplify the signal.This form of volume control is normally only found in professional broadcast environments where accurate low noise control of levels is required.


    Power Amplifier Technology


    The output amplifier used in the Elex-R, Elicit-R and Brio-R was born after extensive research by our engineers to develop a low source impedance emitter follower Class-A driver stage. This is based around a complementary pair of 150w Sanken Darlington output transistors. The technical and sonic improvement gained by the use of low impedance drivers is well known, however, it can feature high standing currents in the driver stage when using standard transistor configurations. By combining the low impedance driver with the Sanken Darlington transistors (with their imbedded thermal bias network running at a lower standing current) this combination forms a complementary emitter follower emulating Class-A conditions with good thermal stability with lower standing.

    Introducing the Rega ISIS flagship CD player


    We are very proud to introduce the 7th generation of Rega CD player.


    A product manufactured to the highest achievable quality inside and out, Rega's own unique CD technology, genuine black chrome lid and front facia, a custom solid anodised aluminium case weighing in at a notable 19kg! We hope you enjoy this very special CD player; we have spent a very long time creating it, drawing on our many years of experience in specialist Hi-Fi manufacturing.


    Technology behind the design of the Isis


    One important design goal was to take the current output, with no internal amplification within the D to A converter, and convert this to an analogue voltage, using discrete class A operational amplifiers and filters. This circuit can then be optimised for sonic performance. (With most CD players the use of standard operational integrated circuits locks you into the sound of those particular integrated circuits, thus narrowing the scope for improvement).


    The class A current to voltage conversion amplifier evolved out of the development of the first stage of the Rega IOS MC amplifier.


    It shares identical demands of low noise, high drive capability and gain bandwidth required of the voltage to current amplifier.


    Careful choice has been made for every component in the digital and the analogue signal path to ensure the integrity of the signal.


    The analogue and digital sections are bonded together using a substantial ground plane. It was found during the development of the player that
    adoption of RF ground plane techniques aided the sonic quality and therefore were included in the final design.


    Careful design of the PCB's ensures isolation of not just the digital and analogue sections, but also the motor, display and user interface processor.


    All sonically critical electrolytic capacitors have been by-passed with polypropylene or polyester film capacitors. In addition to this, large value electrolytic capacitors have also been by-passed with audio grade electrolytic capacitors.
    Power supply impedances in the digital to analogue converter are kept very low by the use of solid polymer capacitors.


    All power supplies utilise custom Rega K-Power smoothing capacitors, along with fast diodes which have been used throughout in power supply rectification.


    The Isis uses enhanced and optimised control code for the control of the CD processor and user display.This speeds up the initialisation process by means of a tighter control interface between the user micro and CD processor.


    Analogue section


    The analogue section employs two Burr Brown PCM1794 digital to analogue converters, running in a parallel dual mono mode, driving a high performance discrete class A current to voltage amplifier.


    This combination generates an exceptionally wide dynamic range, low distortion, and linear signal. This drives an enhanced discrete class A output amplifier. The circuit is fully balanced from the digital to analogue converters to the balanced analogue XLR outputs. The analogue stage has its own dedicated 50VA mains transformer which ensures galvanic isolation between the digital and analogue sections of the player. You will find 10 separate power supply regulators are used in the analogue circuit and each individual amplifier stage has its own dedicated low noise voltage reference.


    Digital section


    The digital section is blue printed and selected, with major improvements to the mechanism, optical amplifier, DSP core, PLL, master clock & motor power supplies. Another 10 separate power supply regulators are used in the digital circuit. The motor, user interface processor & display also have their own power supply. The digital stage also has its own 50VA transformer again ensuring galvanic isolation. The mechanism is graded and matched to the servo circuits, to ensure the servo and optical amplifiers are working at their optimum point, improving error correction and playability. The headroom of the optical amplifier has been improved by 10% by increasing the voltage in the power supply.


    Digital


    This revolutionary player has been five years in design. Rega, together with its design partners have pioneered a highly advanced servo controller that uses the latest signal processing techniques to ensure that the raw data that is recovered from the disc is of the very highest quality. Because our fully digital servo can use highly advanced algorithms the laser spot is kept in the optimum position for data recovery in terms of focus, size and tracking.


    Extra Error Correction


    Previous chip-sets always made compromises on error correction. Formerly it was possible to have good jog resistance or better musical performance.
    The Rega chip-set allows optimum musical performance and optimised jog /vibration resistance.


    Super-stable phase lock loop


    The entire IC is clocked via a very special PLL of our own design. This allows better CD data recovery as well as a big improvement in the quality of the data delivered to the DAC.


    Low noise digital design


    In the design of our CPU IC we went to great lengths to ensure that the data and address bus noise was kept to an absolute minimum. This ensures the ground and signal connections to the DAC are as 'clean' as is possible.


    USB Input


    Allowing direct connection to a laptop or PC via a USB A-B lead to stream internet radio Mp3 or WMA files directly from your computer via the high quality ISIS internal DAC.


    The USB input uses an isolated double-clocked USB interface, which permits the digital to analogue stage to be used with a computer USB interface and it's own regulated power supply.


    The USB benefits once again from galvanic isolation from the main circuitry of the ISIS player which eliminates the flow of earth currents between the CD and host computer, and eliminate computer power supply noise.


    Disc Analysis


    The ISIS will analyse each disc on an individual basis. During the initialising period (rather like the engine management system on a modern car which optimises the engine settings to temperature, fuel quality etc.) the ISIS will adjust itself to each disc in order to give optimal trouble free reading. For this reason the ISIS will often play discs with marks or scratches that other players cannot read.


    All these features amalgamate to create the supreme level of performance found in the Isis and provide a perfect partner for the Rega Osiris amplifier.

    Those Who Didn't Run EP

    To say Colin Stetson has come into his own in 2011 would be an understatement. February of 2011 saw the release of Colin's highly acclaimed solo album New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges broadly received as a sonic, conceptual, compositional and technical tour de force. Thanks to his trajectory as a session and guest player with a diverse crop of iconoclastic pop/rock practitioners (Tom Waits, Laurie Anderson, TV On The Radio, Arcade Fire) as well as his own tenure in bands like Sway Machinery and Bell
    Orchestre, Stetson was poised to bridge the gap between contemporary rock and more rarified currents of avant jazz. With the Judges album, he did just that, garnering high praise from the both the jazz and pop/rock worlds.


    Colin's astounding physical engagement with his instruments (chiefly bass and alto saxophones) produces emotionally rich and polyphonic compositions that transcend expectations of what solo horn playing can sound like. Stetson is equally at home in the avant jazz tradition of players who have pushed the boundaries of the instrument through circular breathing, embouchure, etc. (i.e. Evan Parker, Mats Gustafsson) and at the nexus of noise/drone/minimalist music that encompasses genres like dark metal, post-rock and contemporary eletronics (i.e. Tim Hecker and Ben Frost both of whom have mixed or remixed Stetson recordings).


    Stetson's non-stop gigging at SXSW 2011 (on the NPR, Pitchfork and Pop Montreal stages) led to hundreds of dropped jaws and just as many superlatives about the man's mind-altering, heart-rending music: how it defies both genre boundaries and the physical boundaries of what one person can sonically generate in live performance with a single acoustic instrument, without recourse to looping pedals or other effects.


    Through the 30-odd solo performances delivered in the wake of the Judges release in the Spring of 2011, Colin continued delving into new compositions and especially more long-form trance/transcendental explorations. Having premiered a couple of these new songs at a small art gallery show in Montreal in May of 2011, Constellation was duly blown away and encouraged Colin to record them while still in their raw, staminatesting glory. He agreed and brought in good friend (and now Grammy-winning engineer) Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Islands) to help capture the performances in Stetson's own basement rehearsal/studio space.


    The two pieces on this new EP both clock in at 10 minutes and are documented in direct fashion, using a handful of mic positions and, as usual, no looping or overdubbing of any sort. They are brilliant single-take performances that showcase Stetson's love for minimalism, a subtle pop sensibility, and a mesmerising, mantric, time-warping technical ability.


    Those Who Didn't Run EP is an amazing addition to what will no doubt be an expanding Colin Stetson discography in coming years; a wonderfully realized portrait of Colin's solo playing before he embarks on a year's worth of touring as part of Bon Iver's live band.


    Those Who Didn't Run EP is available as a 10 pressed on heavyweight audiophile vinyl and comes in a screenprinted jacket by Repetitive Press in Montreal, featuring an illustration by Nadia Moss.

    New Project Led By Montreal Cellist Rebecca Foon

    (ESMERINE, SILVER MT ZION, SET FIRE TO FLAMES)

    • Features Jamie Thompson (UNICORNS) and Guest Players from LITTLE SCREAM, PATRICK WATSON BAND
    and BELL ORCHESTRE

    • Recorded and Mixed by Grammy-Winning Engineer
    Mark Lawson (ARCADE FIRE)


    Saltland is the new project led by Montreal-based cellist Rebecca Foon, best
    known as a founding member of contemporary chamber group Esmerine and a former
    member of Thee Silver Mt. Zion and Set Fire To Flames. Foon began composing solo
    work in 2010, featuring multi-layered cello and hushed vocals at the intersection of
    drone, no-wave, improv, dream-pop and minimalism. Joined by Jamie Thompson
    (Unicorns, Esmerine) on miniature percussion, programming and signal processing,
    Foon's live performances in Montreal and abroad over the past two years have seen
    her sound progress towards gently rhythmic and electronic territory as well. She has
    transfixed audiences with this new music while sharing the stage with Mary Margaret
    O'Hara, Julia Kent, Nat Baldwin and Sam Amidon, among others. As her largely homerecorded debut album began taking shape throughout 2011, with numerous guests
    contributing to various pieces, Foon adopted the Saltland moniker for this work.


    I Thought It Was Us But It Was All Of Us is a beautifully restrained debut
    album that telescopes the directness and economy of Foon's compositional and vocal
    styles into lush, twilight atmospheres aglow with luminescent tendrils and flickering
    particles. Foon sings of childhood innocence lost, of tender utopic reveries and
    downcast dystopic horizons, and the search for soft, stoic strength in a darkening,
    devolving world. Foon's voice is discreet but defined, drifting on buoyant currents of
    sound sourced from her plucked and bowed cello lines, in most cases propelled by
    Thompson's bespoke percussion and understated programming/processing, with
    touches of guitar, bass, horns, woodwinds, strings and backing vocals added by a cast
    of supporting players. The record unfurls like a gauzy flag in a restless breeze at dusk:
    a delicate, resolute sentinel set against the fading light.


    The album's ambience also owes much to the work of Mark Lawson, the awardwinning engineer (Arcade Fire) who collaborated closely with Foon to record and mix
    these songs at Six Saint V, her apartment studio in Montreal. Lawson, along with
    friend and percussionist Thompson, helped to forge a balance between lo-fi intimacy
    and shimmering breadth with these recordings, remaining faithful to the all-anologue
    instrumentation of the source material while judiciously deploying signal processing
    strategies to subtly refract, saturate and expand the sonic landscape. With
    contributions from Laurel Sprengelmeyer and Jess Robertson (Little Scream), Mishka
    Stein (Patrick Watson), Colin Stetson (Bon Iver), Sarah Neufeld and Richard Reed Parry
    (Arcade Fire) among others, Saltland offers up an unassumingly immersive debut
    album of searching songs that blend several core influences into a distinctively
    naturalistic sound. Saltland stakes out an unaffected, meditative, clear-eyed and
    earnest space where minimalism, dream-pop, drone, shoegaze, confessional folk,
    modern chamber and ambient/electronic coexist and coalesce.

    Your Future Our Clutter

    If there is a hint of mortality on Your Future Our Clutter, it's being dealt with by whipping up a white knuckle storm. Into their next decade with the same intensity they started, The Fall are once again at their most rampant. The album, like the band's current lineup, is lean and fast. The Fall at their forward moving, bone-shaking best.
