    An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979)

    An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979) compiles
    unreleased recordings from the archives of multiversal artist Ariel Kalma.
    Concerned as much with musicality as spiritual facility, Kalma's work
    vibrates aside fellow travelers along the great rainbow in curved air of
    the 1970s avant-garde.


    Ariel Kalma's boundary-blurring electronic music is heard here in
    radiant detail across a selection of work spanning his early free-jazz
    and spoken word trips to his infinite modular synthesizer and primitive
    drum machine meditations. Kalma's story is one of world travel, musical
    discovery and ego-abandonment. Yet for an artist who often discarded
    public recognition in favor of the ascetic truths in music making, An
    Evolutionary Music offers the imprint of an outright auteur.


    Born in France, but rarely in one place for long, Ariel Kalma's 1970s
    migrations took flight through the decade's furthest spaces of musical
    and spiritual invention. As a hired horn for well-known French groups,
    the young musician toured as far as India, a place where Kalma would
    learn circular breathing techniques enabling him to sustain notes without
    pause against tape-looping harmonies configured through his homemade
    effects units.


    Those effects evolved from Kalma's loyalty to a beloved dual ReVox
    set-up- two tape machines "chained" together to form a primitive delay
    unit. Over looped saxophone melodies, Kalma would mix in all shades of
    polyphonic color, synthesizing fragments of poetry with ambient space or
    setting modal flute melodies to rippling drum machine patterns and starlit
    field recordings.


    In France during the mid-1970s, Kalma was staffed as a technician at
    Pierre Henry's legendary Institut National Audiovisuel, Groupe de Recherches
    Musicales (INA GRM) studios - the same music concrÉte laboratory that
    spawned masterpieces by members Luc Ferrari, Iannis Xenakis, and Bernard
    Parmegiani. Like his predecessors and colleagues at INA GRM, Kalma's
    relationship to sound was both formal and non-hierarchical. To Kalma, all
    music existed as related universal patterns, in perfect harmony with the
    people, places and environments it was created.


    Kalma's recorded output of the 1970s culminated in the now scarcely-available Les Temps des Moissons (trans. The Time of Harvest) in 1975,
    and a masterpiece of birdsong exploration with Osmose in 1978. Osmose
    is double album featuring sculptor Richard Tinti, who had supplied Kalma
    with hours of field recordings from the rainforests of Borneo.


    An Evolutionary Music harvests uncatalogued music made between
    Kalma's private press records and onward through the many small-batch
    cassette releases Kalma would tender. With this collection of musical
    hybridity and distinct genre-corrosion, Ariel Kalma's righteous bucking of
    both popular music trends and the academic tenets of the avant-garde
    falls squarely in the spirit of other renegades of sacred new-music such as
    Terry Riley, La Monte Young, and Charlemagne Palestine.

    Bones

    On The Delta Saints' new album, Bones, their first for Loud & Proud Records, the Nashville-based band have stripped their roots/blues sound down to its essence, having rearranged the elements into something uniquely their own. Steeped in rock 'n' roll's building blocks - country, R&B, soul and gospel - The Delta Saints' second full-length effort explores influences like Jack White, The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses and Led Zeppelin. Producer/engineer/mixer and Third Man Records alum, Eddie Spear [Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, Neil Young] provided a ghostly, psychedelic atmosphere at Nashville's Sputnik Sound studios, yielding a sound unlike anything they have created before.


    "We got to the point where what we were recording and playing had veered from what we were listening to and loving on our turntables, which can lead to discontent," said Louisiana-born singer/lyricist Ben Ringel, who co-founded the band almost eight years ago with fellow Belmont University student, Kansas native bassist David Supica. Soon after, they were joined by Tennessee-bred guitarist Dylan Fitch and later, after a health scare with the band's former harmonica player, enlisted Louisville resident and keyboardist, Nate Kremer, who was added to the lineup only two weeks before a two month long European tour.


    Taking a novel approach of writing songs spontaneously in the studio, The Delta Saints were challenged to create in the moment and as a result, Bones is their most adventurous effort yet. The album is a collection of eclectic songs, beginning with The White Stripes-meets-Led Zeppelin fuzz-toned garage-rock blast of "Sometimes I Worry." The spare, spooky strains of "Butte la Rose" tell the band's tale of a Louisiana town purposely flooded and displaced five years ago to save New Orleans. The Grapes of Wrath drama of "Dust," based on Ringel's grandfather, an East Kansas farmer, builds to a primal wail at nature with a stunning coda in which Dylan Fitch's guitar drops out and Kremer's B3 organ provides the climax. The title track, "Bones" features hoodoo organ riffs and African-influenced trance music, which came from listening to the Sahara desert African groove of Niger's Tuareg guitarist Omara "Bombino" Moctar and Mali's Tinariwen. The grindhouse honky-tonk chain gang chants of "Heavy Hammer" celebrates the work ethic in no uncertain terms, a call for unity in the wake of Ringel's frustration about getting stuck in the rat race and feeling trapped by some of life's mundane tasks. "Berlin," the first song they recorded after adding Nate on keys, started out as an instrumental penned in the title city while on tour. It eventually metamorphosed into a country twang intro and a prog-rock jam. Bones is a complete work veering between despair and apocalyptic dread.


    "We're trying to push ourselves forward to do something more modern, but at the same time incorporating where we come from," explained Ringel.


    "It was incredible to be able to write a song on the spot and immediately hear what it sounded like," added Supica. "It was a great way to capture the magic right when you come up with an idea, preserving that raw element. We were used to playing a song for months on the road before we recorded it. Still, on the flip side, it was absolutely terrifying to sit in the studio watching the clock tick and waiting for a song to come out. That's where (producer) Ed Spear came into play; he was so good at keeping us pointed in the right direction."


    "This record was made out of both necessity and desire. We needed to be fulfilled and surprised by music again, and we also needed to fulfill that love of writing and recording again."


    The Delta Saints have independently released two EPs (2010's Pray On and A Bird Called Angola), a full-length album (2012's Death Letter Jubilee) and a live disc (2014's Live at Exit/In). They have spent the last eight years touring the US averaging almost 200 shows per year, organically growing their audience, fan by fan, city by city. Major appearances include several festivals including Wakarusa, Summer Camp, Harvest, The Ride, Summerfest and The Simple Man Cruise. A testament to their mixed appeal, they have opened for such diverse acts as Blackberry Smoke, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Taj Mahal, Dickey Betts and Michael Franti & Spearhead.


    The Delta Saints have also have a large international fan base having toured Europe a total of six times, selling out countless venues and playing more than 200 shows in Spain, Sweden, France, Switzerland and Germany, as well as several festivals in Holland (Moulin Blues, Ribs and Blues), Belgium (Gevarenwinkel) and Germany (Grolsch Blues Fest).


    With all that they've accomplished as a hard-working group on their own, The Delta Saints have earned their graduation to industry veteran Tom Lipsky's Loud & Proud Records (which has been the home of Rush, Lynyrd Skynyrd, KISS, Robert Plant, Rob Zombie, Lenny Kravitz and The String Cheese Incident, among others).


    "Don't look so tired, my dear," sings Ringel in Bones' closing track, "Berlin," echoing the band's progress. "We may be bruised, but the day is almost here."


    "It's hard to see progress when you're in the middle of things," said Supica about The Delta Saints' ambitions. "We try to take stock every six months or so and look back from where we've come, from eating at McDonald's and sleeping on people's floors to staying at a Motel 6 and graduating to La Quinta. We mark our success by the hotel chain where we're staying. When we get to Marriott, we know we've made it."


    Bones proves The Delta Saints are well on their way to making that reservation.

    LYFE


    Weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic, Brooklyn's
    Glass Ghost offers dance-friendly art pop.
    - TIME OUT NEW YORK


    ...that irresistible, disjointed mix of pop hooks and
    Beefheartian abandon.
    -VILLAGE VOICE


    ...an affecting, gently aspirated bedtime piece...In
    tune and percussion it struck me as the nocturnal
    cousin to Merriweather Post Pavilion's Guys Eyes.
    - STEREOGUM


    ...a fractured bit of art-pop featuring...intoned
    falsetto over some spare production and airy beats.
    -PITCHFORK


    Since the release of their debut album Idol Omen in 2009, Glass Ghost's founding members Eliot
    Krimsky and Michael Johnson have kept busy. In addition to playing dozens of shows, including
    a tour with White Rabbits, Johnson joined Dirty Projectors as their new drummer, Krimsky has
    been collaborating with Here We Go Magic on keys, and the duo welcomed two new members to
    the group, Tyler Wood on keyboards and percussion, and Aerial East on vocals. Like their debut,
    LYFE was produced by Tyler Wood, who also produced Joan As Policewoman's 2014 album The
    Classic. For the LYFE recording sessions, the group recruited many of their friends to contribute, including Joan Wasser of Joan As Policewoman, Nat Baldwin of Dirty Projectors, and
    Christopher Tignor of Slow Six and Wires Under Tension. Pushing their songs to new levels by
    working with Brooklyn's musical elite is nothing new for Glass Ghost. They worked with more
    than a dozen of their friends from Brooklyn's music community, including Sharon Van Etten
    (who in 2011 noted "Eliot Krimsky is one of my favorite writers."), Here We Go Magic's Luke
    Temple, and Matt Iwanusa of Caveman, for their debut which was described by the New Yorker
    as "elegant compositions of frosted indie pop," and by Time Out New York as "weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic.


    On their new album LYFE, Krimsky (who's currently working on his M.A. in Media Studies at The
    New School, where he's exploring the convergence of technological mediation, identity and
    music) turns his observations of the absurd and mundane into metaphors about living in a
    world where every detail about your life is harvested, quantified, and used by marketing companies to manipulate your behavior. Rather than sounding didactic or overly intellectual, the
    songs provide windows into the band's internal world, as Krimsky's tender falsetto glides over
    the icy landscapes of synths, strings, woodwinds, and regal horns. As the product of Krimsky,
    Johnson, and Wood's mutual trust, vision, and relentless attention to every detail, LYFE masterfully blends airy, melancholy, and chilly atmospherics with Glass Ghost's irresistible bottom-heavy grooves and hooky pop sensibilities.

    A Treasure (Out Of Stock)

    Live Album from 1984-85 Tour!


    Includes Free Limited Time mp3 Digital Download of the entire album!


    Experience this live, 12-track ablum which includes 6 previously unreleased track recorded with legendary band, The International Harvesters, while on tour in the US in 1984. This Limited-Edition Vinyl pressing is on 140 Gram Double-Disc Vinyl featuring special artwork etched into the fourth side.


    Neil Young unearths this live country album recorded with the International Harvesters. The 12-track album includes songs recorded during their 1984-85 U.S. tour. Selections include Grey Riders and artists include the late Ben Keith on steel and slide guitar, Rufus Thibodeaux on fiddle, Spooner Oldham and Hargus Robbins on piano, Tim Drummond and Joe Allen on bass, Karl Himmel on drums, Anthony Crawford on guitar, banjo and mandolin among others!


    The live album captures this iconic artist during a fascinating time in his career, when he was facing criticism and lawsuits from his then current record company for exploring a more traditionally country sound. You can call me erratic, Young said when asked at the time about his tendency toward musical shape-shifting, but Ive been consistent about it, consistently erratic. Always celebrated for his musical versatility, A Treasure, is akin to a sonic time capsule, instantly transporting the listener to the time and place when it was made.


    I love this record. I hadn't heard these takes in 25 years, but when we unearthed them co-producer Ben Keith said, 'This is a treasure'. - Neil Young

    Latest In Young's Archive Performance Series Spotlights Artist's Incredible 1984-85 Run w/ the All-Star Lineup of the International Harvesters


    Bound for Glory: Young's Country-Minded Gems Sparkle Onstage


    Five of the Dozen Tracks Never Before Released Including Sought-After Grey Riders


    Audiophile-Grade Vinyl: 4th Side Features Special Etching


    Includes MP3 Download of Entire Album


    Neil Young's Archive Performance Series returns in 2011 with a true gem that will please both hardcore fans as well as music listeners seeking insight into one of the most unheralded, unexpected tours in history. Captured during Young's 1984-85 tour with a group of country pros named the International Harvesters, and featuring several of the most acclaimed performances in the legendary artist's career, A Treasure lives up to its name and more. 180g 2LP, mastered by Chris Bellman from the original tapes and pressed at Pallas, features a special art etching on the fourth side. In addition to the incredible sound, it's the music that really matters.


    The 12-track live album includes songs, five of which are previously unreleased, recorded during Young's 1984 and 1985 U.S. tours without the support of an album or Young's then-record label due to unique and unusual circumstances. A Treasure features Young's onstage work with some of the greatest artists in the history of country music, including the late, great Ben Keith on steel and slide guitar and Rufus Thibodeaux on fiddle, along with living legends Spooner Oldham and Hargus Pig Robbins on piano, Tim Drummond and Joe Allen on bass, and Karl Himmel on drums, among many others.


    The live album captures the iconic artist during a fascinating time in his career, when he was facing criticism and lawsuits from his then-current record company for exploring a more traditionally country sound. You can call me erratic, Young said when asked at the time about his tendency toward musical shape-shifting, but I've been consistent about it, consistently erratic. A Treasure is akin to a sonic time capsule, instantly transporting the listener to the time and place when it was made. I love this record, Young says. I hadn't heard these takes in 25 years, but when we unearthed them, co-producer Ben Keith said, 'This is a treasure.'


    Part of what makes A Treasure so compelling is the musical contributions of The International Harvesters, with whom Young was playing at the time. Many of them were already paragons within the country music world and their notoriety has only grown in the years since. I just love to hear those guys, Young says. They're all country music legends. Those behind the scenes also made significant contributions to A Treasure's sonic potency. Tim Mulligan mixed and mastered the tracks. At the time these songs were recorded, Bob Sterne was the tour manager, Tim Foster ran the stage, and Larry Cragg was in charge of the band's instruments.


    Mastered from the original tapes by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, pressed at Pallas, and featuring heavenly sound, this is both an audiophile delight and musical revelation. Also includes MP3 download of entire record. Don't pass this up!
