    Soundtracks

    Out Of Print For Over 10 Years


    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.


    Soundtracks is a compilation album, first released in 1970, consisting of tracks written for film. The album marks the departure of the band's original vocalist Malcolm Mooney, who sings on two tracks, to be replaced by new member Damo Suzuki. "Don't Turn the Light On, Leave Me Alone" is Damo Suzuki's first recorded performance with Can.


    The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West (who sampled 'Sing Swan Song') and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.

    Tago Mago, Can's third studio album originally recorded in 1971 is the first album with Damo Suzuki on vocals, and features the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards.

    Surrounded

    In the time since Our Blood was released and after a few long tours, Richard Buckner attempted to work on writing short stories but found himself drawn back into the music room. The evidence of his time in
    the writer's chair is clear in the dense, lovely prose of Surrounded. The album's liner notes include text-embedded lyrics, a technique Buckner
    employed on his earlier albums Since and Impasse, but this marks the first time he used the songs' extended story to construct the album's overall
    view and track sequence.


    Throwing out the "tricks and trades" of his previous efforts, Buckner hunkered down at home and chose a few unfamiliar pieces of gear-a Suzuki QChord electronic autoharp and an Electro-Harmonix POG2
    pedal-to create basic tracks and open up more sonic possibilities. "The best outcomes happen sometimes when I'm unfamiliar with the tool that I'm using (imagine MacGyver wearing a dog cone)."


    The now-infamous process of recording and re-recording Our Blood left him a bit gun-shy, so this time, Buckner decided to get each song out of his house as soon as it was finished to avoid the contamination of overthinking. After hearing an interview with famed producer Tucker Martine, Buckner found a destination for his songs: "Tucker understood the urgency in me to tie the whole thing up before I fell into the same trap that I'd had finishing Our Blood and was generous enough to move other commitments around to fit Surrounded in. When I had finally finished Our Blood, I felt like I'd just survived a stroll through a mine field. With
    Surrounded, it was more of a sensation that I'd successfully organized a messy desk."

    Cortar Todo

    For over fifteen years, Zu's modus operandi of straddling and abusing musical genres has resulted in over fifteen unique album releases across labels such as Ipecac, Atavistic and Headz (Japan). Their experimental amalgam of metal, math, no-wave, noise and electronics, led acclaimed composer John Zorn to describe their sound as a powerful and expressive music that totally blows away what most bands do these days.


    In the running for the title of the world's hardest working band, Zu have performed over 1000 shows throughout Europe, US, Canada, Asia, Russia, Mexico and even Africa, touring with the like of Mike Patton (as the Zu/Patton quartet), also sharing the stage with Faith No More, Fantômas, The Melvins, Lightning Bolt, Sonic Youth, The Ex, and countless others. They have also collaborated with a vast number of musicians including Mike Patton, The Melvins, DÄlek, Jim O' Rourke, FM Einheit (Einsturzende Neubauten), Peter Brötzmann, Nobukazu Takemura, Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Steve MacKay (The Stooges), The Ex, Thurston Moore, Stephen O Malley, Damo Suzuki (Can), Mats Gustafsson, NoMeansNo, Joe Lally (Fugazi).


    Five years since their last full length on Ipecac, the critically acclaimed Carboniferous, and following a three year hiatus, Zu returned in May 2014 with the release of a brand new EP, Goodnight Civilization (Trost Records) and with a line up change that introduced the mighty Gabe Serbian, best known as the drummer for the legendary Californian band, The Locust.


    In March 2015, Zu are preparing to release a brand new full length via Ipecac Recordings, entitled Cortar Todo, and recorded in the countryside near Bologna, Italy, in the summer of 2014. The album features some very special guests including keyboard player Joey Karam (The Locust), Italian guitar maverick Stefano Pilia (who plays regularly with the likes of Mike Watt, David Grubbs and Rokia Traore) and perhaps most unexpectedly, a field recording of an indigenous Shipibo medicine man recorded by Massimo during his travels around the Amazon.


    Cortar Todo reveals new dynamics from the band, the album is more direct, sharp, focussed, and more intense and musical than anything we have heard from Zu so far. In addition to the album release, we can expect a long period of touring starting in Spring 2015.

    Flood (Speakers Corner)

    In the summer of 1975, the Herbie Hancock Sextet made a hugely successful tour of Japan, which made people aware of a 'new' Hancock. The last LP that the keyboard virtuoso had recorded, Thrust, was already one year old, and the film music for the Charles Bronson classic Death Wish was received negatively by his fans. At his concerts in Tokyo, Herbie Hancock reached back to his hits: Maiden Voyage, Chameleon, and the famous, soulful Watermelon Man made the fans at his concert hall and open-air appearances go wild with enthusiasm. Forty years later I have the courage to confess that I couldn't have cared less about this music at the time; in Europe there was enough that was new and exciting to see and listen to. However, this re-release in its original format has given me the opportunity to check out whether this music has withstood the test of time. And I must say: it has passed the test! Just listen to Herbie at his best!

    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    The Wanting

    The Wanting, Glenn Jones first album for Thrill Jockey, was recorded in a fourth floor apartment on Commonwealth Avenue, Allston, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, overlooking the commuter train line. If you listen carefully to the record, you can occasionally hear trains going by in the background. Reuben Son recorded the album between December 12, 2010, and April 20, 2011. The Wanting was mixed and mastered by long time collaborator Matthew Azevedo. Simply put, The Wanting is a collection of original compositions for solo acoustic steel string guitar, six-string, 10-string and bottleneck, and 5-string open-back banjo.


    Glenn Jones, a 30+ year devotee of the so-called American Primitive school of acoustic steel string guitarists, has been playing guitar since the age of 14. He formed Boston psych-rock band, Cul de Sac, in 1989 and led it on its 20 year journey to nowhere, leaving nine albums in its wake, including collaborations with guitarist John Fahey and Can's Damo Suzuki.

    Future Days

    LP Has Been Out Of Print For Over 30 Years


    Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger
    Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed
    a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of
    ethnic, electronic, experimental, and modern classical music.


    Future Days is the fifth studio album by Can. This is the
    last album to feature Japanese vocalist Damo Suzuki. On
    Future Days, the band explored the ambient direction they
    had introduced into their sound on the previous year's Ege
    Bamyasi creating a landmark in European electronic music.
    Future Days is fiercely progressive, calming, complex,
    intense, and beautiful all at once.


    The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and
    their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely
    acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James
    Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai,
    Kanye West (who sampled 'Sing Swan Song') and Radiohead
    - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and
    literature.

    Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed
    a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of
    ethnic, electronic, experimental, and modern classical music.


    Soon Over Babaluma is the sixth studio album by Can,
    the band's first album without a lead vocalist who does not
    play an instrument, following the departure of Damo Suzuki.
    The vocals are taken care of by guitarist Michael Karoli and
    keyboardist Irmin Schmidt. It is also their last album that
    was created using a two-track recorder taking the ambient
    style of Future Days and pushing it even further.

    Worship

    Guitars as jet engines; guitars as haunted electronics; guitars as filling-melting white heat: A Place To Bury Strangers' new album Worship is explosive, visceral, and dark. APTBS' DIY-braintrust of Death By Audio wizard Oliver Ackermann and bassist Dion Lunadon continue the evolution of songwriting that began with Onwards to the Wall, the band's 2011 EP.


    Now on Worship, they interweave threads of krautrock, dream-pop, and '80s goth without ever losing the edge that is quintessentially A Place To Bury Strangers. Unhinged dissonance is artfully framed within a fiercely dynamic and assured melodic sensibility. Standout You Are The One is a coldwave white squall, with Ackerman coming through like an austere and menacing Damo Suzuki. Later on Dissolved, the band methodically builds an atmospheric battle charge only to take a hard left mid-song into pure, shimmering Cure territory. There are ambitious, trend-bucking choices at every turn.


    This album was written, recorded, mixed and mastered by A Place To Bury Strangers. It is our vision of what our music should sound like in 2012, not someone else's interpretation, says Lunadon. Every sound on the album is made by us and our tools; tools created by us, used on no other recordings, and purposefully built for this project. This is real. Some of it is the band being in complete control; bending, shaping and building the songs and the sounds. Other parts are the band relinquishing control and letting the songs and sounds take over and produce themselves.We are not trying to reinvent ourselves, but simply push ourselves further in all aspects of our music.


    We made this, we recorded this, we did everything, adds Ackerman. Yes, we chose to do this and no, we didn't have to but we think it is pretty cool. No producer made us. We didn't go to school for any of this and we don't have time for tutorials. We invented this and now we are sharing it with you.

    Inherent Vice Soundtrack

    Nonesuch will release Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack to Oscar-nominated filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson's new feature film, Inherent Vice). An adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name, Inherent Vice, which will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in theaters starting on December 12, is set in the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and stars Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin and Owen Wilson. In addition to nine compositions by Jonny Greenwood, the soundtrack features Spooks, an unreleased Radiohead tune performed by members of Supergrass, as well as other recordings from the movie's era (complete track list follows). Additional performers include The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Neil Young, Can, and The Marketts, among others.


    This is the third Anderson film that Greenwood has scored. Their previous collaborations include the critically praised soundtrack for 2007's Academy Award-winning There Will Be Blood and 2012's The Master, both released by Nonesuch. Rolling Stone said of The Master that its visual poetry is matched by Jonny Greenwood's haunting, hypnotic score. The New Yorker described the music as rich and inventive. The Times of London exclaimed: Jonny Greenwood's score is superb. Of the There Will Be Blood score, the Boston Globe noted that the squealing, cicada-like strings of...Popcorn Superhet Receiver masterfully evoke the film's apocalyptic vision of the West.


    All Tracks Composed by Jonny Greenwood, except Vitamin C by Michael Karoli, Jaki Liebezeit, Irmin Schmidt, Holger Schuering, and Kenji Suzuki; Here Comes the Ho-Dads, by Joseph Saraceno; Spooks, by Colin Greenwood, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Philip Selway, and Thom Yorke; Les Fleur, by Richard Rudolph and Charles Stepney; Sukiyaki, by Rokusuke Ei and Hachidai Nakamura; Journey Through the Past, by Neil Young; Simba, by Les Baxter; and Any Day Now, by Burt Bacharach and Bob Hilliard.
