    S/T II: The Cosmic Birth And Journey Of Shinju TNT

    Finally, after over a month of unanswered emails and text messages, blown deadlines, and pleas to finish and turn in their new album, last week, a large brown cardboard box showed up at the Dead Oceans doorstep. It had SHINJU TNT scrawled across the bottom of the box in black magic marker, and the return address read only AK, Detroit.



    Opening it revealed a sincere but poorly made diorama of futurist swirling spaces filled with toy astronauts and dinosaurs, four blown out song fragments on a TDK CDR in a zip-lock bag, three pictures, and a typewritten note from Akron/Family. A post-it on the bag declared the band refused to send the full album to anyone but the vinyl pressing plant, for fear of leaking and possible lost revenues.



    From the note and a short video that arrived days later, Dead Oceans pieced together that the album was written in a cabin built into the side of Mount Meakan, an active volcano in Akan National Park, on the island of Hokkaido, Japan. It was recorded in an abandoned train station in Detroit with the blackest white dude we all know, Chris Koltay (Liars, Women, Deerhunter, Holy Fuck, No Age). Chris, on tour after finishing the record, commented: this album will transcend the internet.



    Akron/Family spent the end of 2009 and half of 2010 exploring the future of sound through Bent Acid Punk Diamond fuzz and Underground Japanese noise cassettes, lower case micro tone poems and emotional Cagean field recordings, rebuilding electronic drums from the 70's and playing them with sticks they carved themselves. Upon miraculous resuscitation of the original AKAK hard drive, the album layers thousands of minute imperceptible samples of their first recordings with fuzzed-out representations of their present beings to induce pleasant emotional feeling states and many momentary transcendent inspirations.

    Monomania

    After a brief hiatus following the success of third album Halcyon Digest, during which time Bradford Cox and Lockett Pundt released their own albums as Atlas Sound and Lotus Plaza respectively, a new Deerhunter line-up (with additions of bassist Josh Mckay and guitarist Frankie Broyles) reconvened in January 2013 at Rare Book Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Produced by Nicholas Vernhes and Bradford Cox and recorded in the dead of night, Deerhunter's new longplayer Monomania will be released on 7th May. Monomania finds the group recalling its scrappy punk aesthetic; a perfect nocturnal garage rock album full of the layered and hazy vintage guitar sounds that define them.

    Parallax

    Welcome to Parallax, the third long player from Atlas Sound, the ever expansive solo project from Bradford Cox of Deerhunter. Atlas Sound is not a side-project but rather a fully fleshed musical landscape chock-full of pop chronicles culled from sci-fi fever dreams and mid century rock. This is perhaps Coxs best work to date, juxtaposing his modern, sometimes avant, songwriting sensibilities against a backdrop of ambient lonliness and a quiet feeling of desperation. The artwork and photos were done by Mick Rock, the legendary photographer best known for his work with David Bowie.


    Let the album unfurl slowly, listen repeatedly and it will reveal itself in all its intricate resplendence.

    Founding fathers of Atlanta's flower punk movement, the Black Lips are set to release Arabia Mountain, their sixth full-length album, on longtime label Vice. Arabia Mountain was recorded between Brooklyn and Atlanta over the last few months of 2010 with the collaborative assistance of celebrated DJ and producer Mark Ronson, Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter, and a human skull with a microphone jammed into it.


    Arabia Mountain marks the first time the Black Lips have worked with an outside producer. Mark Ronson, best known for his production work with the likes of Nas, Adele, Kaiser Chiefs, Duran Duran, Lily Allen, and Amy Winehouse, recorded nine of the album's 16 tracks while Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter produced 2 cuts.

    In this short span of time, Reatard has cranked out more memorable songs than some acts do in their whole careers -- Pitchfork


    For the six months leading up to this release, Matador has put out a limited edition 7-inch by Memphis boy wonder Reatard. Each generated more attention, but was released in a progressively more limited run, starting with 3,500 copies for the first and ending with 400 copies for the sixth. This package collects all six (excluding the Deerhunter track on #4), plus one extra song. Each tune is a perfect snarling pop-punk gem.

    Laraaji: Remixes

    Laraaji is a musician, mystic and laughter meditation practitioner based in New York City. He began playing music on the streets in the 1970s, improvising trance inducing jams on a modified autoharp processed through various electronic effects. Brian Eno saw him playing one night in Washington Square Park and invited him to record an album for his seminal Ambient series (Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance, released 1980). Laraaji went onto release a prolific series of albums for a wide variety of labels, many of which he recorded himself at home and sold as cassettes during his street performances. In recent years he has been collaborating with a new generation of underground musicians, such as the 2011 album he recorded for the acclaimed FRKWYS series with Blues Control (That Healing Feeling). As well as the reissues of his music on All Saints, in the past year he has been included on Light In The Attic compilation I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age Music In America 1950 - 1990, and been a live guest of Deerhunter and Jonathan Wilson.

Greene recorded Within and Without with Ben Allen, who, among a great many other things, co-produced Animal Collectives Merriweather Post Pavillion, Gnarls Barkleys St. Elsewhere and Deerhunters Halcyon Digest.


    In 2009, Washed Out released two critically-acclaimed EPs; Life of Leisure (Mexican Summer) and High Times (Mirror Universe Tapes). Most recently, the Washed Out song Feel It All Around, from Life of Leisure, was chosen as the theme song for the new and very funny IFC series Portlandia, which features Saturday Night Live cast member Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kinney/Sub Pop alum and current Wild Flag member Carrie Brownstein.

    On the Ones and Threes is the band's first LP in ten years, and possibly their best. They remain one of the best bands out theregritty yet melodic, serene yet explosive, and balanced on the brink in a way that has become somewhat of a lost art.On the Ones and Threes is something of a return to form, featuring the reappearances of original member Edward Baluyut, and engineer Nicolas Vernhes (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Cat Power, Spoon) who worked on Secret Swingers and Two Cents Plus Tax.

    Sunswimmer

    From just south of the Appalachian Mountains, in the rolling
    hills of Athens, GA., comes the roaring young four-piece,
    New Madrid. Following the critical acclaim of their 2012
    independently released album Yardboat, the band signed
    with Normaltown records and promptly began work on their
    sophomore album Sunswimmer.


    Recorded during a cool, rainy July, under the direction of David
    Barbe (Deerhunter, Drive-By Truckers), the aural landscapes forged in sunswimmer become almost palpable. Combining
    reverb-drenched vocal harmonies, soaring underwater noise
    and floating, meandering melodies, the sounds don't exit the
    speakers as much as they condense and hang in the air like the
    humid athens summer that birthed them.

    Rooms Filled With Light

    Rooms Filled With Light is the sophomore release from the London-based indie pop band Fanfarolo and follow-up to their internationally acclaimed 2009 debut Reservoir. The album marks a major step forward for Fanfarlo and finds the band incorporating new textures into their already eclectic sonic palette, replacing acoustic guitars with electric and using synths and samplers instead of mandolins and glockenspiels. Rooms Filled With Light retains the lyrical and musical themes of its predecessor while expanding upon them with increased dynamics and more emphasis on atmosphere. The 12-song set was produced by by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley) and engineered by award-winning producer/engineer David Wrench (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything, Beth Orton) at North Wales Bryn Derwen Recording Studio.

    Into The Wide

    The fourth album from San Diego-bred five-piece Delta Spirit, Into the Wide was born in a flood-ruined, cave-like, rat-colonized room in the band's new hometown of Brooklyn. After spending more than a year writing together in the windowless studio they rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy wreaked its havoc, the group resurfaced with a batch of demos and headed to Georgia to team up with Ben Allen (a
    producer/engineer known for his work with artists like Animal Collective and Deerhunter). Recorded near an old shipping yard in Atlanta, Into the Wide intimately captures the claustrophobia of Delta Spirit's creative space, turning that tension into a moody meditation on the restlessness of city life, growing older, and longing for escape. With its lyrics largely inspired by the murder ballads of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, Into the Wide proves more darkly charged than anything the band's ever offered up before but - thanks to their command of both indelible melody and sprawling, atmospheric arrangements - ultimately emerges as Delta Spirit's most gloriously heavy album so far.

    All Are Saved

    Never settling down for a second, Fred Thomas has spent the last decade and a half flying just beneath the radar of most listeners, but amassing a dedicated grassroots collection of friends and admirers.
    "All Are Saved" is technically the eighth Fred Thomas solo album, and possibly the best yet.


    The result of over a year of recording, refinement and long-labored sonic sculpting, these eleven tracks are the culmination of everything Fred Thomas has done before while being a decidedly bold move into brand new territory. Heavy, poetic lyrics are more spoken than sung, recalling the urgency and straightforwardness
    of cult bands like The Van Pelt or Life Without Buildings, while each song builds on a patchwork of grainy samples, dreamlike guitar figures and deftly produced clashes of organic instrumentation
    and vintage synth textures.


    Fred's dabblings in melancholic chamber pop (Saturday Looks Good To Me), ambient electronics (City Center), jangly but angular guitar playing (Failed Flowers) experimental production and jaw-droppingly confessional lyricism are all distilled into one unflinching statement. These are the raw nerves of the friendliest guy
    at the party, spilling out shamelessly naked feelings. The album features mixing assistance on many songs from Drew Vandenburg (of Montreal, Deerhunter), and several guest spots from friends in bands like People Get Ready, Radiator Hospital, Known Moons and even a guest backing vocal cameo from Andrew W.K.

    Body Faucet

    There is no pretense behind the Athens, GA four-piece Reptar (named after a Rugrats character) and consisting of Graham Ulicny (guitar/vocals), William Kennedy (analog keyboards), Ryan Engelberger (bass) and Andrew McFarland (drums). Still, the ability to amuse and arouse their fans is just as important to them as indulging their musical curiosities. This sonic wanderlust extends from African Music to post-punk to psych-pop and converges joyously in songs such as Blastoff and Rainbounce among others.


    Their aesthetic percolates even more vibrantly through their debut LP, Body Faucet, to be released on Vagrant Records. A set of shimmering sing-along anthems produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Washed Out), Body Faucet is propelled by jerky guitars and persistent beats. The record feels like a big dream with different chapters, says Ryan. Ghost Bike captures the space between witnessing a friend's death and surviving it. In Sebastian (named after a saint who became a gay icon), it's experiencing, then remembering, a sexual awakening with a close friend.


    Lyrics and music flow in a liquid form from real places, each song oozing with a different color and substance. We wanted to capture the thoughts we project on our surroundings and the ideas that flow in and out of us each day, says Graham. Indeed, much of the record deals with exploring and interacting with one's surroundings in new, occasionally frustrating, ways. The album builds with songs such as New House, expressing a future of possibilities. A centerpiece of sorts, notes Andrew, it's the most driving song on the record, and it's really empowering live.

    Past Life


    Includes CD Of Full Album


    When Lost In The Trees set out to record Past Life, their
    third album for ANTI-, they knew they needed a break
    with the past. On their first two releases Picker had used an
    expanded six-member band to render his carefully composed,
    classical-inflected songs. For the new album, the band is pared
    to a lean electronic-rock four-piece; the arrangements are modern,
    spare, minimal, emphasizing groove and rhythm, blending the sonic architecture of 21st century electronic dance music, and the sensual swerve
    of post-Bowie 80s pop.


    The band made their next break with past practice by electing to work with
    an outside producer for the first time. Nicolas Vernhes, whose credits include
    breakthrough albums from Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors and Animal Collective, endorsed the band's new minimal aesthetic, and the
    question in the studio became, "How much can we strip
    away?" But fans that came to the band lured by the lush
    classicism of All Alone In An Empty House and A Church That
    Fits Our Needs (the Wall Street Journal's album of the year in 2012)
    will not be disappointed. The haunting lyricism of Picker's voice and
    melodies has not diminished in the new sparer approach, but instead rises
    to the fore, bringing out that timeless quality of the melodies that is the common
    ground of both folk and pop music. This pop quality, buried but always present
    in previous efforts, shines on Past Life; not pop in any trivial, retro sense, but the
    yearning lilt of Harry Nilsson or Mark Hollis, that floating melodicism that Relix
    found so "achingly beautiful."

    Recorded At Sonic Ranch (Band Of Horses, Animal Collective)


    Engineered by Drew Vandenberg (Kishi Bashi, Deerhunter)


    "Whether exposing light or dark, or some blank hue in the middle,
    Barnes has all but bulls-eyed his status as a brilliantly daring artist."
    - PASTE


    "A thrilling, carnival-like atmosphere around Barnes' fractured perspective."
    - AV Club


    "A golden despondency" is how Kevin Barnes translates the meaning behind
    Aureate Gloom, the title he gave of Montreal's thirteenth full-length album.
    The oxymoron is one Barnes says best describes the overall state of his life and
    mental outlook while working on the record - penning lyrics so personal they
    sound like entries ripped from a journal that should be permanently kept under
    lock and key.


    "I was going through a very stormy period in my life and felt like I was just
    completely trashed," reveals Barnes. "I might be guilty of sharing or exposing
    too much of my private life, but to me the best albums are those that help
    people connect with an artist on a deep, human level and that do so without
    too much artifice or evasiveness."


    Aureate Gloom was recorded directly to tape with musicians Kevin Barnes
    (guitar, vocals), Clayton Rychlik (drums), Bob Parins (bass), Bennett Lewis
    (guitar), and JoJo Glidewell (keys), plus the help of engineer Drew Vandenberg.


    The strength of the members' musical rapport was instantly apparent. The
    group completed nearly a song a day and even wrote a brand new track
    on the spot, "Apollyon Of Blue Room," whose title references a supposedly
    haunted bedroom in a hacienda on the studio grounds. With Aureate Gloom,
    of Montreal have created one of the most unflinching, confessional and starkly
    emotional albums in their career.

    Paracosm

    The music recorded by Ernest Greene as Washed Out has been nothing if not dreamy, and on his second full-length, Paracosm, he takes the dreamlike,
    otherworldly atmospheres of his music a huge leap further.


    The title refers to a phenomenon in which people create detailed imaginary worlds, and the idea of escaping is all over Paracosm's music and lyrics. Paracosm finds Greene reaching beyond the computers and synths that filled Washed Out's previous recordings, expanding his sonic palette to include over 50 different instruments, the most significant of which turned out to be old keyboards like the
    Mellotron, Chamberlin, Novatron, and Optigan.


    "I've grown as a songwriter to the point where I
    want to have more involved arrangements, and that's really hard to do with sampling," says Greene. "These machines were kind of a happy medium: The sounds have a very worn, distressed quality about them, much like an old sample. But they also offer much more flexibility because they're playable."


    Following two years on the road in support of
    the critically-acclaimed Within And Without, and the lauded Life Of Leisure EP (which can still be heard during Portlandia's opening credits), he and his wife, Blair (who plays in the Washed Out live band), relocated from the big-city hubbub of Atlanta to a house outside Athens, where Greene could shut out the real world in favor of an alternate universe of his own making. Listeners will be immediately struck by Paracosm's seamless melding of organic and synthetic sounds, and its lighter tone. Greene says: "I knew from the beginning I wanted this record to be optimistic, very much a daytime-sounding album. I think the last record felt more nocturnal in some ways. This one I just imagined being outside, surrounded by a beautiful, natural environment."


    With its gorgeous execution and uplifting attitude, Paracosm is primed to be this year's summer record. And it promises to do what its name suggests: take listeners to a better world.


    Paracosm was recorded at in Atlanta with Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley, Washed Out - Within and Without) at Maze Studios.

    Waiting A Lifetime

    Splashh was formed in 2012 by friends Sasha Carlson and Toto Vivian. The pair have been making music together since they were teenagers in the suburbs of Australia, which to be fair, was only a few years ago.


    Their debut album, Comfort, recorded entirely on their own with a home studio in their London flat, was released in 2013 to critical acclaim. With praise from NME, BBC, CLASH, The Guardian, Clash, Drowned in Sound, Q, and many other tastemakers, the band hit the road in support of the album touring extensively through the UK, Europe, America and Australia.


    In 2015, the band divided themselves between London and New York City, for a time of "self-imposed exile to write." The idea being that the time apart, and the different influences of the two cities, would bring a new dimension to the music. With the addition of new members, and the production skills of Nicolas Vernhes, (War on Drugs, Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors) the sound that this creative time had cultivated has been beautifully captured on Waiting A Lifetime, their sophomore effort, to be released on by Cinematic Music Group in early 2017.


    "When we first went in the studio, we had a different idea of how we wanted the record to sound," says Vivian. "We had been sitting with the demos for 3 years, so we had an idea of what we thought the album should sound like. When we went into the studio with Nicolas, we started fresh and tore the songs apart. It was a lot of fun to experiment and take it as far as we could. It was liberating."


    Adding another layer to the album is the band's aesthetic. The album artwork is by artist Lucien Smith, who created original works of sculpture he then photographed for the band to use. The first round of press photos is by drummer Zachary Chick.


    "It's fast and in your face. Loud, but also pretty," says Toto. "The whole record has a lot to offer. If people like 'Rings' then I think they will love the record or not :)"

    Foil Deer

    Speedy Ortiz said they would get the flowers themselves. What a lark! What a plunge!


    When considering Massachusetts' Speedy Ortiz, that line from Virginia Woolf comes to mind. Not only for the obvious echoes to DIY, a form and function that's characterized the band's nascency, but in the proto-feminist undertones driving much of their sophomore album, Foil Deer. "I'm not bossy, I'm the boss," Sadie Dupuis sings on "Raising the Skate," invoking in spirit one half of the Carter-Knowles clan and echoing the other's wordplay. And wordplay makes sense, considering Dupuis-the band's songwriter, guitarist, and frontwoman-spent the band's first few years teaching writing at UMass Amherst. She's drawn to the dense complexity of Pynchon, the dreamlike geometry of Bolaño, the confounded yearning of Plath-all attributes you could easily apply to the band's 2013 debut Major Arcana, which fans and press alike have invested with a sense of purpose and merit uncommon in contemporary guitar rock.


    The group, including Mike Falcone on drums, Darl Ferm on bass, and new addition Devin McKnight of Grass is Green on guitar, have spent the last year on an almost endless cross-continental touring jag, tagging along with the likes of The Breeders, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, and Thurston Moore. That shift into full-time musicianship brought with it an attendant reordering of priorities when it came to songwriting, and the band members' lives in general. They would get the damn flowers themselves.


    Dupuis wrote much of Foil Deer at her mother's home in the Connecticut woods, where the songwriter imposed a self-regulated exile and physical cleansing of sorts, finding that many of the songs came to her while running or swimming alone. "I gave up wasting mental energy on people who didn't have my back," she says. "Listening to our old records, I get the sense I was putting myself in horrible situations just to write sad songs. This music isn't coming from a dark place, and without slipping into self-empowerment jargon, it feels stronger." Many of the songs deal with a similar sense of starting over, editing out the unnecessary drama. "Boys be sensitive and girls be, be aggressive," she sings on "Mister Difficult."


    And while their debut album was recorded on the fly, Speedy Ortiz spent almost a month in the studio on Foil Deer. Falcone's drums are taut, mechanistic; Ferm's bass ranges from the aggressive rattle of an AmRep classic to smoother, hip-hop inspired lines. McKnight, meanwhile, lends spacier, textural riffs to complement Dupuis' wiry, melody-driven guitar style. "The demos for our songs have always had tons of small details and production experimentation, but we never had any money to pay for more than a couple days in the studio, so the songs came out very live-sounding and guitar heavy," Dupuis says. It was recorded and mixed at Brooklyn's Rare Book Room with Nicolas Vernhes (Silver Jews, Enon, Deerhunter), with the record mastered by Emily Lazar (Sia, Haim, Beauty Pill), lending a more polished sound and a pop sensibility that will stand out to existing fans and new converts alike. For all the lyrical complexity and guitar-based excursions Speedy Ortiz have built their reputation on to this point, Foil Deer has a sense of light-footed fun. What's the point of doing things yourself if you're not going to enjoy the trip?
