Chain Gang Of LoveImport
'Chain Gang Of Love', originally released in August 2003, is The Raveonettes' first full length album after they debuted with the critically acclaimed 'Whip It On' mini album in 2002.
Their sound has often been compared with that of the noisy and distorted Jesus And Mary Chain, while the Velvet Underground and even the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers are never far away either. The most noticeable difference in sound between the debut EP, which had all songs in B-flat minor, and this album is that here all songs are in B-flat major. The result is an album drenched in an uplifting fifties and sixties sound.
Because of this wall of sound you might expect a Phil Spector production, but Sune Rose Wagner himself (one half of the Danish duo which is The Raveonettes) and Richard Gottehrer (producer for a.o. Blondie and The Go-Go's, and founder of Sire Records) were responsible for this remarkable and uplifting release.Side A

I Will BeI Will Be is the debut full-length by the Dum Dum Girls. Recorded at home by Dee Dee and mixed with the help of Richard Gottehrer (Strangeloves, Voidoids, Blondie, The Go-Gos and, more recently, The Raveonettes), I Will Be is a decidedly medium-fi record. Just under 30 minutes with 11 songs, it's a short tribute to love, fun and the classic pop form of the '60s girl groups and early punk rockers.1. It Only Takes One Night

GoatRemastered from Original Masters by Steve Albini and Bob Weston.
A head-splitting jolt of relentless anxiety, frantic paranoia, concussive racket, and oddball frenzy, The Jesus Lizards Goat became an instant indie-rock landmark upon its 1991 release. Instigating, cutthroat, and snarling through broken teeth, it became the blueprint followed by the likes of Nirvana, Helmet, Fugazi, and the Melvins, and its never sounded better!
Part of Touch & Gos stellar Jesus Lizard reissue campaign, the pioneering Goat has been meticulously remastered from the original tapes by Bob Weston (Mission of Burma, Shellac) and original engineer Steve Albini. The new pressing presents Goat in a sonic light that exceeds even the best expectations. Theres greater space between instruments, heightened dynamics, a more solidified mid-range, extended imaging, deeper soundstage, and an incredible boost in energy. Benefitting from Albinis dry, no-frills production, indie-rock has seldom sounded so dangerous, physical, or fervent.

Too Tough To LiveDan Sartain returns with the new album Too Tough To Live, 13-tracks delivered in under 19 minutes! That's an average strike rate of a new tune every 1 minute and 30 seconds. Recorded at Lucky Cat, San Francisco, Too Tough To Live finds Sartain running fresh out of patience with a whole itinerary of hassles: department stores, death, the unseeing eye, the all-seeing eye, heaven, hell, Vietnam, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and you.
Too Tough To Live also boasts a guest appearance by singer/guitarist Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's on Now Now Now. The two met at a brain trust of sorts in San Francisco known as a Star Track convention. After some begging and name dropping, Wieldlin was convinced to join Sartain here, achieving one of the album's highlights in the process.
The new set finds Sartain operating at the opposite end of his range to that of 2009's Dan Sartain Lives. With adequate production values and some musical chops, the down stroke ridden Too Tough To Live is a tribute to when punk was the real deal!1. Nam Vet

ADAD-SUB-0950xDum Dum Girls
Only In DreamsOn several levels, Dum Dum Girls second full length Only in Dreams is a great leap forward for a gifted songwriter and an equally gifted band. It's heavy, deeply personal stuff and surely unprecedented for this style of music. The first record was basically the first songs I'd ever written, says band-leader Dee Dee, and I was thinking nostalgically about being a teenager. This record, it was pretty much impossible not to write about very recent, very real things.
Very real things indeed: Dee Dee wrote Hold Your Hand immediately after her mother (the pretty lady on the cover of both the Dum Dum Girls' self-titled 2009 debut EP and their 2010 debut album I Will Be) was diagnosed with what turned out to be a fatal illness, and it's one of several songs on Only in Dreams that unsparingly trace her mom's passing. Other songs spell out the emotional toll of separation from one's lover, something Dee Dee had to deal with while she and her husband (Brandon Welchez of the acclaimed noise-pop band Crocodiles) pursued their own tour schedules.
Only in Dreams more than fulfills the promise of 2011s acclaimed and fast-selling He Gets Me High EP. It retains Dum Dum Girls' signature blend of the girl-gang eyeliner punk of the Shangri-Las, the trashy propulsion of the Cramps, and the moody atmospherics of Mazzy Star, but for the first time, all four Dum Dum Girls play and sing on the album. Now the harmonies have more depth, Jules plays her own distinctive guitar leads, and the Bambi (bass)/Sandy (drums) rhythm section powers the music like a vintage V-8 engine. Best of all, tons of time on the road, including two massively successful headlining tours, have molded Dum Dum Girls into a very formidable rock & roll band, giving the music an undeniable force.
And now that power and glory is showcased by full-on studio production, while I Will Be was recorded at home and modestly spiffed up in a studio by legendary pop maestro Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Go-Go's), Only in Dreams was recorded at Josh Homme's Pink Duck Studios, and Gottehrer again produced, this time with Sune Rose Wagner from the Raveonettes.
Only in Dreams represents a musical evolution for Dum Dum Girls and a personal one for Dee Dee, and that's no coincidence. I'm for real, she says. We all are. I'm really passionate about this, it's all I know. And maybe we've just grown up a bit, or grown out a bit. There's some weight to what we do, and a pure intent, and I think that comes across on this album.1. Always Looking

Covered In Black
And they are glorious, beautiful. Sounding a bit like She &
Him might were they produced by Sufjan Stevens - to create a
sort of She & She & She & She, they are four alt-pop Brontës
who beam right into your stereo like a comforting aural torch
you never need to buy batteries for. - Drowned In Sound
"Best referenced midway between the Bangles and Go-Gos in
terms of a girl group approach, there's a kind of slacker
sensibility at work here, one that never muffles the drive or
conviction. I was meant for something more, Cottingham
sings on the final track, aptly entitled Anything and indeed a
lyric has never sounded so true." - Blurt
Precociousness always catches its observer off guard; we are
witness to a stubborn incongruity, a disproportionate relationship
between limited years and elevated levels of skill, insight, or
vision. It confounds common experience, and we wonder. When
Ortolan's debut album Time On A String was released in 2010,
three quarters of the family foursome were yet under drinking
age. Along with copious kudos given to the quality of the music
and the maturity of the songwriting, every single review made
mention of their age. Wonder indeed.
What may be the greater marvel though, is when a nascent talent
starts to grow into itself; when prodigious promise begins to
deliver something beyond spectacle, when it begins to nourish
those who are witness to it. Such is the case with Ortolan's latest,
Covered In Black.
The pulse at the heart of Ortolan's music has always been
Stephanie Cottingham's voice, a curious combination of
innocence, wisdom, and wit (all rare commodities in the greater
landscape of popular music today). These beguiling qualities
remain, but here her voice is imbued with a greater richness. The
bandwidth of color, hue, and shade has widened; the reds are
redder and the blues are bluer. Even more significant though, is
Cottingham's development as an interpreter of her own songs.
Her voice remains a thing to behold, but in the tradition of Kitty
Wells, Etta James, or Emmylou Harris, she is becoming a
storyteller. Each note is now is its own scene in a greater drama.
Each vocal push and lilt tells of loss and love, fear and
As much as Ortolan is about Stephanie Cottingham's voice and
songwriting, it is about family, and the picture is incomplete
without the powerful presence of Jill (keys), Briana (bass), and
Lara (drums). Floor toms drum and drive, strumming guitars
strum and strum faster, basses rock and keyboards swirl and
swoop. Their commitment to one another is palpable, and is as
important to the music as the notes and rhythms they're playing.
That their voices also join Stephanie's throughout the record is
not insignificant. There is an excess of animosity in the world: so
much time is spent competing, resisting, debating, conflicting,
arguing. There is something so vital and humane in joining voices
for once, in unison. One of the simplest and most powerful
activities of human beings is singing together, and this is a
central ingredient to Ortolan's music and life. Nothing is
pretended-it's what they do: voices are raised and raised
together -- to cry, to question, to pray, to laugh, to celebrate.
The color black is achieved through the mixing of different
paints and opposing pigments; as such, black represents the
presence of color, not the absence of it, and Ortolan's latest is
covered in it.1. Bottle's Broken
