    Landfall

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's Landfall, inspired by her experience of Hurricane Sandy, is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the groundbreaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson's powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. The Washington Post calls it riveting, gorgeous.

    Under The Pines

    So complex and substance-affected was their evolution, Bardo Pond have been creating their dreamy riffs for 26 years alongside a myriad of side projects. Returning with a career defining album, 'Under The Pines' sees them delve into the subconscious with their transcending cosmic post-rock. Over 41 minutes The Pond's fermentation, their languid throb and textured groove (flute, violin, Isobel Sollenberger's haunting vocals) sounds like cathartic dream pop wrapped in a delicately constructed barbwire shroud. "Playing fuzzed out stuff of stoner dreams since the mid '90s," (thanks Pitchfork) and beyond the mentions of free jazz, the avant garde, Sun Ra and The Book Of The Dead, Bardo Pond's remarkable career and exemplary output has seen them gain fans from all corners of the pond.


    In 2010 Lou Reed and his wife Laurie Anderson invited them to perform at the Vivid festival they curated at the Sydney Opera House, not forgetting they were recently handpicked to support Jesus & Mary Chain at London's Roundhouse as part of Mogwai's 20th Anniversary and Stewart Lee chose them for the All Tomorrow's Parties festival which he curated just last year. Hailed for their space rock, drone, shoegaze, noise and/or psychedelia, and in a super lengthy interview in Ptolemaic Terrascope enthused (back in 2001) that they were somewhere between John Cage's silence on 4'33 and Japanese noisenik Merzbow's total ear splitting cacophony. One of their finest albums to date and nearly three decades on, Bardo Pond are in it for the long haul and remain one of the most significant underground rock bands of our time.

    Sunshine (Discontinued)

    On Talk Normal's sophomore LP Sunshine, the Brooklyn duo unveils songs that sparkle with melody and dissonance. Jarring rhythms and feedback-drenched guitar tones lace Sunshine's nine surprisingly songful tunes, creating a sound informed by their predecessors (Cocteau Twins, Velvet Underground, Laurie Anderson) yet strikingly new. Featuring Sarah Register's flowing, nearly drony riffs and Andrya Ambro's finely choreographed beats, the end result is a natural sonic cohesion. It may not be the sunshine you're used to but rays within which you'll want to bask.

    I can feel you creep into my private life

    Tune-Yards' magnum opus will arrive in the form of new album I can feel you creep into my private life. Thematically, the 12 new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as Tune-Yards' most immediate and upbeat music yet- this is Tune-Yards' music to dance to.


    On I can feel you creep into my private life, Tune-Yards is officially a duo. Garbus is joined by longtime collaborator Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Garbus. Tune-Yards worked with mixer Mikaelin "Blue" BlueSpruce (Solange, Kendrick Lamar). Tune-Yards' 2014 release Nikki Nack was one of the most well-received albums of the year. New York Magazine called it "possibly the catchiest record of the year," the New Yorker praised its "joyful energy" and "surprisingly sweet singing and catchy tunes," and Entertainment Weekly said, "life needs joyful noise like this."


    Since the release of Nikki Nack, Tune-Yards has kept busy collaborating with legendary musicians David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and Yoko Ono, as well as penning the standout track, "Action," from Mavis Staples' 2016 album.

    Beak & Claw (Discontinued)

    Comes with a digital download card! Stranger things have happened, but rarely do they make such beautiful music. The three esses that comprise the enigmatically titled s / s / s are as follows: Sufjan Stevens, he of the Fifty States Project and various baroque folk-pop opuses; Serengeti, the wry-witted rapper known for in-depth on-record character studies; and Son Lux, silken-voiced singer, studio wizard and singular beatsmith. The project's roots reach back to 2009's Dark Was the Night compilation, where Stevens and Geti met over a Buck 65 remix of a song written by psych-folkie Castanets. Continuing in the spirit of (unlikely) collaboration, the pair passed beats and raps back and forth, eventually enlisting Son Lux to dream Beak and Claw into fruition.


    While this momentous EP comprises a mere four songs, each covers an immense stretch of sonic territory and emotional range. At six minutes, "Museum Day" may be the most adventurous and also the most satisfying, opening with a swath of AutoTuned heartache courtesy of Stevens, cresting with the darkly detailed raps of Geti, and closing in a hail of crashing cymbals, orchestral glitch and haunted coos from Son Lux. "Beyond Any Doubt" exchanges that taut splendor for deeper grooves whose farthest-out moments bring to mind Shabazz Palaces' cracked futurisms, albeit spiked with a falsetto'd pop hook. Fuzzy bass and industrial clang crash into lines about unrealized escapism and unpaid bills. Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond lends "If This Is Real" its Andrews Sister-like chorus, an immaculate contrast to the aural chaos that eventually overtakes the song. Meanwhile, Doseone (Subtle, Themselves) lends a similar buoyancy to "Octomom," an electrospackled, mostly spoken piece that plays like a Laurie Anderson track for the reality television generation (also featuring jaw harp and harmonica by Ohio folk vet Hal Walker). Because of its subject matter, this final song goes a long way to illustrating Beak and Claw's strange magic and, ultimately, why s / s / s works at all. Geti's humor and humanity are matched by playfulness and poignancy every step of the way. In the end, sublime confluence prevails.

    Music For Installations (Box Set) (Awaiting Repress)

    9x Vinyl Box Set


    First Time On Vinyl


    The legendary Brian Eno is set to release a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased tracks, Music For Installations, through UMG.


    The new collection will be available as a 9-LP edition vinyl box set. This is the first time any of the 'Music For Installations' tracks will be available on vinyl.


    Musician, producer, visual artist, thinker and activist Brian Eno first came to international prominence in the early 70s as a founding member of Roxy Music, and immediately followed that with a series of critically-praised and influential solo albums. His visionary production work includes albums with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Devo, Laurie Anderson and Coldplay, while his long list of collaborations includes recordings with John Cale, David Byrne, Grace Jones and James Blake.


    Less widely discussed, though equally notable and arguably even more prolific, are his visual experiments with light and video. These are the fertile ground from which so much of his other work has grown; they cover an even longer span of time than his recordings and have in recent decades paralleled his musical output.


    These highly-acclaimed works have been exhibited all over the globe - from the Venice Biennale and the Marble Palace in St Petersburg to Beijing's Ritan Park and the sails of the Sydney Opera House.


    Brian Eno said of the collection: "If you think of music as a moving, changing form, and painting as a still form, what I'm trying to do is make very still music and paintings that move. I'm trying to find in both of those forms, the space in between the traditional concept of music and the traditional concept of painting."


    Music For Installations is a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased tracks, all of which will be available on vinyl for the first time. All of the material was recorded by Eno for use in his installations covering the period from 1986 until the present (and beyond). Over this time he has emerged as the leading exponent of generative music worldwide and is recognized as one of the foremost audio-visual installation artists of his time.

    Fits & Starts


    LP Packaging Features Custom Adhesive Wrap & 16 Page Booklet


    For the tenth volume of FRKWYS, composer,
    percussionist and sound designer david Van
    tieghem alongside ten younger artists from
    across the avant spectrum become a bulletin
    of Fits & Starts.


    In July of 2012, RVNG Intl. was invited to participate in Bulletin Boards, a group
    exhibition at Venus over manhattan curated by White Columns' gallery director matthew
    Higgs. An extension of an ongoing project which resides in the entrance of White
    Columns' downtown New York gallery, Bulletin Boards featured 24 artists/entities, each
    given a new bulletin board as an inspirational starting point.


    In 1981, David Van Tieghem produced the experimental music video Ear To The
    Ground. The film features Van Tieghem "playing" downtown New York City, a world
    in which Van Tieghem established his rhythmic roots as a member of the love of life
    orchestra, a frequent collaborator with laurie anderson, and a player on steve reich's Music
    For 18 Musicians, robert ashley's Perfect Lives (Private Parts) / Perfect Lives and david Byrne
    and Brian eno's My Life in the Bush With Ghosts among other seminal recordings including
    his own.


    In Ear To The Ground, all city surfaces become communications-or bulletins-under
    Van Tieghem's twiddling, thwacking and thumping thumbs. Partially inspired by this and
    by our blank but physically limited canvas space, Van Tieghem agreed to take part in
    a sequence of improvised performances and creative editing to become part of our
    FRKWYS series.


    We also invited ten younger musicians to post objects to the board. A cross section of
    present day New York artists were represented by way of sam Hillmer as diamond terrifier
    (with the aid of max alper), Future shuttle, Georgia, roberto Carlos lange as Helado negro,
    darren Ho, eli keszler, Hiro kone and megafortress, alongside the regionally sympathetic
    Blanche Blanche Blanche and maxmillion dunbar.


    In place of business cards, broadsheets, and flyers, the objects/communications
    contributed were broken toasters, firecrackers, 2x4s, thunder drums and customized
    electronics, each intended as a percussive device. On opening night, the bulletin board,
    disguised as assemblage, welcomed David's dialogue.


    In the spirit of Ear To The Ground's infinite conversation, Van Tieghem returned to
    Venus Over Manhattan to "play" the bulletin board without an audience. The process
    of Van Tieghem discovering and responding to the objects/bulletins again was multitracked in high definition.


    These recordings were then presented to the ten contributing musicians for further
    translation, "remix" and interpretation. For the final sequence, the unique pieces were
    delivered to Van Tieghem to edit and embellish as the sound collages presented as Fits
    & Starts across two album length sides of our tenth volume in the FRKWYS series.

    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.

    Shelter (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: June 15, 2018*


    London-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney follows her 2015 Nonesuch debut, The Longest River, with Shelter, also set for release via Nonesuch Records. The album was produced by Thomas Bartlett (David Byrne, Nico Muhly, The Magnetic Fields, Sufjan Stevens, The National, St. Vincent, Father John Misty, et al.) and features eight original songs, along with Chaney's interpretations of Purcell's O Solitude and Frank Harford and Tex Ritter's Long Time Gone, first recorded by the Everly Brothers.


    Chaney describes her time writing songs for Shelter: I had been on the road a lot and was struggling with the grit and loneliness of urban life. I think I'd been questioning what home, belonging, a sense of purpose, and my own culture even meant. I'd been craving wilderness and a return to essentials for a long time. Then, while touring in the US, I realized the place I needed was already in my life. It was ancient, barely habitable, and remote.


    Thus a crumbling eighteenth-century cottage in the austere but magical hills of the North Yorkshire Moors-a family retreat since my teens, with no electricity or plumbing, where the only water comes from a spring-became the home for my work on Shelter, she continues. We brought out an Arts and Crafts Bechstein piano and an old wood burner to the house; and as summer's end turned to autumn's shorter, colder days, the room with the upright and stove fueled my stay.


    Chaney says of working with Thomas Bartlett, His close affiliation with such a varied and acclaimed group of artists was of enormous importance. His taste and sphere of understanding were as diverse as mine. He prioritized my compositions' meaning and lyricism, rather than jumping on the bandwagon of noisy popularity. I wanted a recording as intimate as the songs and their form. The only other musicians are Thomas and Jordan Hunt, my longtime collaborator who adds strings on select songs. It's just the three of us playing every sound you hear, using our instrumental and compositional craft, and Thomas' musician-producer's ear extraordinaire.


    Born in Florence, Italy, Chaney grew up in Oxford, England, in a household whose intellectual and artistic engagement was complemented by an expansive musical soundscape. This included Billie Holiday, Mozart operas, Sandy Denny, Prince, Tracy Chapman, Bert Jansch, Michael Jackson, and Joni Mitchell. She studied at London's Royal Academy of Music, where she took in everything the conservatory had to offer. Her curiosity led her further afield, from Ligeti to West African pop, Edith Piaf to Laurie Anderson, Mary Margaret O'Hara to Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, Sonic Youth to Sappho, Kate Bush to old-time country music-all while finding her own voice.


    The range of artists she's shared a stage with includes Robert Plant, Zero 7, the Labeque Sisters, Martin and Eliza Carthy, and Kronos Quartet, with whom she also recorded two songs for the 2017 Nonesuch album Folk Songs. Most recently she fronted a Grammy-nominated album, The Queen of Hearts, forming a new outfit, Offa Rex, with The Decemberists. The Guardian's review of that album said that Chaney has a magical voice, full of heft, soul and sunlight, and fRoots said, Chaney has never sounded better, while the Arts Desk said it was her voice, with its clarity, power and emotional weight, that carries Offa Rex to the heights. The Financial Times added that Chaney's singing makes 'Willie O' Winsbury' one of the best versions ever.

    So: 25th Anniversary Box Set

    Ranked 187/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    Peter Gabriel's iconic So album remastered and expanded for the 25th anniversary edition


    One of the most successful and iconic music releases of the Eighties, Peter Gabriel's 1986 album, So, has been digitally remastered for a special 25th Anniversary Edition to be released by Real World Records/EMI. Peter Gabriel has confirmed a 16-date North American tour for September and October, with many of the musicians from his 1987 'So' tour joining him to perform the album from start to finish, as well as other hits spanning his solo career.


    Peter Gabriel's So topped charts around the world, hitting Number 1 in the UK, Canada, Italy, and Holland and Number 2 in the US and Germany. So became a decade-defining album and the best-selling release of Gabriel's solo career, landing an international array of multi-Platinum certifications, including quintuple-Platinum in the US with sales of more than five million copies.


    Launched with the huge hit single ''Sledgehammer'' and its groundbreaking music video (which remains MTV's most played video of all time), So also includes ''In Your Eyes,'' famously featured in Cameron Crowe's film 'Say Anything,' the haunting duet ''Don't Give Up,'' performed with Kate Bush, and ''Big Time,'' Gabriel's bombastic, tongue-in-cheek commentary on '80s extravagance. Co-produced by Gabriel and Daniel Lanois, the album also includes contributions from Laurie Anderson, Stewart Copeland, Jim Kerr, Bill Laswell, and Nile Rodgers.


    So's 25th Anniversary Edition will be available on a 4CD/2DVD/LP/12'' Deluxe, Limited Edition box set.


    The box set includes the remastered album on CD and on 180-gram vinyl which has been mastered at half speed to maximize the audio quality and re-sequenced so the tracklist, unlike that of the original LP, is as Peter Gabriel had originally envisioned. The set also features a bounty of previously unreleased audio and video content, including the two Athens concert CDs and a 'So DNA' CD of work-in-progress drafts of So's songs, mapping the album's evolution from concept to completion.


    One of the box set's two DVDs features the fully restored Athens concert, which was filmed and recorded by director Michael Chapman and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. Gabriel's first concert to be filmed, the footage has been assembled for the first time from more than 150 reels of original 35mm negatives and its audio has been mixed in 5.1 surround. The box set's second DVD features a new 'So: Classic Album' documentary. The latest addition to the acclaimed and award-winning 'Classic Album' series tells the story behind the making of the album and its music videos, with contributions from many of those involved, including interviews with Gabriel and Lanois, among others.


    The box set also includes a 12-inch double A-side vinyl single with two previously unreleased tracks from the So sessions, ''Courage'' and ''Sangrada,'' plus an alternate version of ''Don't Give Up'' (Piano and Bvox Mix). A 60-page case-bound book with an introduction and 'So DNA' summary written by Peter Gabriel, new liner notes, and an extensive collection of rare and never before seen photographs completes the set.
