    Cosmic Logic

    Los Angeles, California-based duo Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis A.K.A.
    Peaking Lights are thankfully back and set to release their new album Cosmic
    Logic via Weird World Records / Domino Recording Co.


    Cosmic Logic is a heady brew of dub, kraut, minimal house, disco and pop
    influence all rendered in the inimitable Peaking Lights fashion. Recorded by
    the band themselves in a couple of LA studios and then mixed by Matt Thornley of DFA, Cosmic Logic follows the outer space pop explorations of 2012's
    critically acclaimed Lucifer and 936 before that. This time around, however,
    the band have gone for a more concise, lean approach - abandoning some of
    their psychedelic sprawl for a more pure pop experience.


    Cosmic Logic opens with the guitar and drum-heavy "Infinite Trips," a song
    which Coyes says is "an homage to the opening track 'Der Song von
    Mandelay' on The Flying Lizards debut album - we wanted to come in from
    left field." The mood of the record takes a sharp turn when the sputtering
    drum machines and spacey keyboards kick in on "Telephone Call," a song that
    tucks the cosmic into the quotidian. "It was influenced by ideas in the
    Carpenters' version of the 1977 cover of Klaatu's 'Calling Occupants of
    Interplanetary Craft,'" Coyes said. To which Dunis added: "It's about keeping
    an open mind to cosmic messages that can come from anywhere."


    The album traces a singular trajectory through Peaking Lights' current sonic
    palette, full of coruscating synths and percolating drum machines. "I think
    Aaron's rhythms are definitely influenced by whatever is on his mind:
    reggae, dancehall, funk, Afrobeat, disco, etc." Dunis said of the beats that
    power the album. Cosmic Logic both looks to other musical cultures as well
    as up to the stars for inspiration, and is a beacon in dark times, a reminder to
    be at once mindful of the terrestrial and the celestial, to be open-eared and
    open-minded.


    Or, as Dunis sings on "Telephone Call": "Use your heart and not your ears."

    Logical Revelations

    This compilation album is in three parts; the best tracks of the 1995 album 'Sea Of Light' and the 1998 album 'Sonic Origami' and the band's best known tracks recorded live at the Live Music Hall, Cologne in 1994. The album name is a combination of two of the included song titles and is in effect the primer for anyone wanting to hear the Uriah Heep of the 90´s. The songs contained in this compilation carry on the band´s legacy with Mick Box´s incisive signature guitar work and lavish helpings of Hammond organ from Phil Lanzon.

    House Of Spirits


    A more melancholic take on Brian Eno's "Baby's On Fire",
    only with dusty country-style vocal harmonies - Pitchfork


    Bells of Paonia is a lush and pretty fuzz-guitar drone with
    plenty of starry-eyed melody in there - Stereogum


    Warm organ tones shine through the fuzz, showing The Fresh &
    Onlys at their most earnest and heartfelt. - Consequence of
    Sound



    With surreal nightmares, glistening pop tempered by sinister
    undertones and even unsettling experimentalism, The Fresh & Onlys'
    fifth album, House of Spirits is the San Francisco quartet's most
    focused and most experimental yet. The material gestated during
    vocalist Tim Cohen's isolated stay on an Arizonan horse ranch where
    he documented dreams in a bedside notebook. The resultant songs are
    by turns pristine, feverish, and bizarre, as The Fresh & Onlys returned
    to Lucky Cat Studios in San Francisco with Phil Manley (Trans Am)
    to recast the textures, leaps of logic and evocative character of
    Cohen's dreams into songs.

    Wayne Shorter made a major impact on the Jazz world during 1963-64. He left Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers to become a member of the Miles Davis Quintet, and he recorded Night Dreamer and Juju as a leader for Blue Note. Speak No Evil is even notable than those two gems, for Shorter had developed into not only one of the most original tenor-saxophonists of the 1960?s but also one of its most vital composers. With superb playing by Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Freddie Hubbard and Elvin Jones, Shorter introduces six unique compositions including Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, Speak No Evil and Infant Eyes. Hubbard and Hancock consistently raise the temperature with fiery solos. Shorter's playing and writing are both beyond description, utilizing a logic all his own which, over time, has become a major influence in Modern Jazz. Throughout Speak No Evil, Shorter creates brilliant new music like no one else.

    While We're Young - Soundtrack

    While We're Young is Noah Baumbach's sparkling follow-up to his 2012 hit Frances Ha. No film has better captured the weird, upended logic of urban sophisticates: the older ones embrace their iPads and
    Netflix, the young ones crave vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes.


    The film follows Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a childless New York married couple in their mid-forties. As their other friends all start having children, the couple gravitates toward a young hipster couple named Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried). He's an aspiring documentary filmmaker, avocation Josh already has. Soon the older couple begins enjoying the energy they feel hanging out with the younger generation, but eventually Josh begins to suspect his new best friend might not be as straightforward
    and trustworthy as he thought.


    The soundtrack is filled with classics such as Paul McCartney's "1985," Lionel Richie's "All Night Long (All Night)," Survivor's "Eye of The Tiger," or David Bowie's "Golden Years" just to name a few. The score to the film comes courtesy of LCD Soundsystem's own James Murphy.

    2. All Night Long (All Night) - Lionel Richie
    3. Buggin' Out - A Tribe Called Quest

    Enjoy Your Rabbit


    "This may just be Sufjan Stevens' Magnus Opus.
    Forget Michigan, Seven Swans, Illinois . . . Enjoy Your
    Rabbit is a masterclass in doing everything that logic
    tells music not to do." - Sputnik Music


    "Sufjan Stevens proves himself adept of both long and
    short forms; downtempo and high BPM; glitches,
    scratches and ambient drones; blips, bleeps and
    bloops." - Pitchfork


    "The underlying guiding principle is wide-eyed
    exploration that fills nearly every track with a sense of
    playfulness." - All Music


    Originally released in 2001 before Michigan and Illinois,
    Sufjan Steven's Enjoy Your Rabbit foretells his 2010
    electronic Age of Adz. Though overlooked by many,
    there are fans who regard Enjoy Your Rabbit as
    Sufjan's greatest work.


    Departing from the singer-songwriter format of his
    debut Asthmatic Kitty Records album, A Sun Came,
    Rabbit is a collection of fourteen colorful instrumental
    compositions combining Sufjan's noted gift for melody
    with electronic sounds to create an unusually playful
    and human- not to mention humane- electronic
    experience. Great for dancing, driving, writing, cooking,
    painting, running, walking, and of course, eating
    Chinese food, Rabbit features nearly eighty minutes of
    music that will truly soothe the savage breast, whatever
    that means.

    Noctilucence

    Noctilucence is a new 12 recorded between in 2013 and 2014 between Los Angeles, California,
    and Cleveland, Ohio. The term "noctilucence" comes from "noctilucent clouds", the name
    given to clouds which, for some reason, emit a brilliant vibrance at night. On this recording
    we find our subject diving into the electric waters of the night sky, in long drives across the
    vast deserts of America. It's a recording about the discovery and understanding of the shadow,
    entrance to the realm not controlled by the light of day, or the logic of reason. It's about
    confronting nocturnal terrors and all of those things that go bump in the night.
    Understanding that the ancient archetypes which watch over us don't flinch, and stand firm
    across the spell of time. On Along The Way we sought the Macrobes for guidance, and on
    Noctilucence we see them taking real shape. Opening with a mantra to the perpetual
    regeneration of the spirit of love, crying out for new levels of confidence and consciousness to
    emerge from the human race, Noctilucence is a deep stare into the infinite eye of the
    shimmering night sky of the future, and all it holds in its gaze.

    Composer Daniel Pemberton follows up his movie score for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with not one but three different scores for Steve Jobs, the new Danny Boyle film starring Michael Fassbender as Apple's controversial visionary leader.


    "There is not one side of music that could reflect Jobs' personality. There is a classical side to him, a rebellious side to him, a technical side to him, a soft side to him, and a cold side to him", Pemberton explains. The movie is therefore divided into three acts, each with a different musical theme.


    The first act "Vision" is set in 1984 when Steve Jobs had his vision of what personal computing could bring to the world. Then there is "Revenge" in 1988 when he sets up this company pretty much to get revenge on the people he thought had betrayed him at Apple. Finally, "Wisdom" is the climax with his own personal realization of what his goals in life have been and what has been slightly misguided.


    Pemberton wanted to have a sound that captured the times so for the first act he used synthesizers from the early '80s. The third act is performed on a Mac computer using Logic - modern technology which wouldn't be available weren't it for Apple. For Act II, he used "the oldest computer that still exists, which is the orchestra. You give them information which is notation and they interpret that in a way better than any piece of technology has managed to beat.

    Taking mid-70's NYC underground attitudes to extreme but logical ends, Suicide's often terrifyingly apocalyptic vision of American culture sliding towards destruction was perfectly complimented by their psychotic blues and sizzling hypnotic electronics.

    Hawkins was one of the main inspirations of his fellow tenor Eddie Lockjaw Davis, so it was logical that they would one day meet up in the recording studio. This LP has many fine moments from these two highly competitive jazzmen, particularly the lengthy title cut and a heated tradeoff on In a Mellow Tone, on which Davis goes higher but Hawkins wins on ideas.

    Karajan took the young Anne-Sophie Mutter under his wing in the early 1980s and together they produced the of
    Mendelssohn's and Bruch's famous violin concertos. Mutter said: "Karajan taught me to find the common thread
    that runs through a score, to think the music through to its logical conclusion not simply to juxtapose notes in long
    overarching paragraphs but to place them in the service of the musical idea. This is something that has lodged in
    my memory with particular force.

    Flying Fantasy


    By embedding both new age and noise-oriented
    electronic themes into his pastoral pieces, Turnquist
    unites disparate traditions and ideals, essentially
    employing sonic counterweights to construct 57 minutes
    that are as surprisingly dynamic as they are perfectly
    beautiful.
    - PITCHFORK (8.2)


    New York's Turnquist is masterful. His right hand
    technique is as orchestral as Nick Drake's, sending rivulets
    of steel sadness out across the water, but applied to a
    minimalist logic with the weight of early Philip Glass or
    Steve Reich
    - UNCUT


    Turnquist layers his six and twelve string guitar
    instrumentals with electronic drones, piano and vibes.
    This first widely available release is a filmic beauty, its
    chilly pastoralism distinguished by the physicality of his
    playing
    - MOJO


    Another bravura outing from Turnquist that is, in its own
    unassuming way, a triumph
    - TEXTURA


    As an accomplished 12-string guitarist/composer, Alexander Turnquist was naturally
    alarmed when the ulnar nerve in his left hand seized up in 2013, but after a surgical procedure he gratefully started the process of learning to play guitar again. His recovery was
    cut short when not long after the surgery he was hospitalized with meningitis. Though his
    recovery is ongoing, and he continues to struggle with a weakened immune system and
    memory loss, he was inspired to soldier on, rather than being deterred by his physical
    struggles.


    Turnquist's latest full-length Flying Fantasy confirms the idea that out of great hardship
    can come great art. As he wrote the material for the new album it became clear that his
    sensitivity had sharpened, his empathy magnified, and his sense of purpose blossomed.
    The unfortunate circumstances he endured ostensibly forced his metamorphosis from a
    remarkable guitar player to a truly great composer. Much like the butterflies that adorn
    the album cover, he seems to have changed form and taken flight.


    The album opens with the sparse harmonics of House of Insomniacs, which are soon
    joined by lush swells of vibes, cello, and even wordless vocals. On the tracks that follow,
    Turnquist continues to make use of this dynamic sonic pallet, even adding organ, piano,
    marimba, steel drums, violin, and french horn to the mix. From Red Carousel, which was
    inspired by Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes, to the somber lilt of the love
    song Wildflower, to the truly arresting title track Flying Fantasy which uses only 4 open
    strummed guitars and loops of damaged tape and wire recorders, every note vibrates with
    life as Turnquist ushers us though his intoxicatingly colorful worlds of sound.

    Ease My Mind

    Ease My Mind, the fifth full-length by Shout Out Louds, is a welcome return from these Swedish pop masters.

    In their 15 years as a band, Shout Out Louds have toured the world many times. The band played a show in the Brazilian rainforest with a freezer box for a dressing room. They once performed in Yokohama,Japan, for an audience of two Austrians. They played in a Sicilian rainstorm so heavy they had to shake out their instruments afterwards,with the soaked backdrop left hung to dry on a hotel façade. Themusic sites will remind you that the band have performed for DavidLetterman and Jay Leno and toured with The Strokes during their heyday, but most importantly, they have released four albums of brilliant pop music.

    Ease My Mind was recorded with Fredrik Swahn (from the band The Amazing) who filled the band with such new energy that they were willing to commute to the 'burbs during the darkest months of the year. He was joined by Måns Lundberg who produced the song Souvenirs and Axel Algmark who produced No Logic andAngel. The band recruited Lars Skoglund for drums, known for his work with Lykke Li.

    Adam and Bebban in the band write: The world is a different place now than it was in the beginning of the 2000s. We didn't grow up very aware of political messages in music and probably didn't feel much of an urgent need to understand the world around us, in that sense. However, that has changed over the years. The world has seemed extremely dystopic and frail for quite a while now, and having children and getting older forces you to open your eyes to issues more devastating than heartbreak and feeling lost. But in our music, we still allow ourselves to address things the way we always have: through emotions rather than analysis. Music as a means of escape, a need to take a break from feeling petrified with fear. Ease My Mind is a lot about that for us.

    Dope Machines

    Every so often, one song can change everything. For The Airborne Toxic Event, that particular number happened to be an A Capella version of Queen and David Bowie's classic duet "Under Pressure".


    "Somebody played it for me, and it blew my mind," declares vocalist and guitarist Mikel Jollett. "I made a decision to change my whole approach to music. I just wanted to be joyful about it. I wasn't going to worry anymore. For the first three records, I thought mostly like writer. My mindset changed. It was about inventing a musical logic that was unabashedly catchy and rhythmic, but way weirder than anything we've done in the past."


    That "logic" came to life while Mikel composed "Hell and Back" for the Dallas Buyers Club soundtrack in August 2013. Under a tight deadline, he had no choice but to produce the track himself-a first for the Los Angeles outfit. However, he didn't stop there.


    The frontman would go on to personally produce The Airborne Toxic Event's fourth full-length album and first for Epic Records Dope Machines with the blessing and support of Steven Chen [guitar, keyboards], Anna Bulbrook [violin, keyboard, backing vocals], Daren Taylor [drums], and Adrian Rodríguez [bass].


    "Producing was massively challenging and super fun," admits Mikel. "When we finished the last record, our producer Jacquire King said to me, 'I think you're ready to produce an album now.' I felt like we had reached the apotheosis of being a proper rock band. This was the exact opposite. It was me alone in a room for 12 hours a day working harder than I'd ever worked."


    Early in the process, Mikel tapped into a boundless aesthetic, embracing electronic elements as well as pop structures and unbridled rock 'n' roll bombast. At the same time, it defied categorization at every turn. "That's one of the hallmarks of the record," he affirms. "It doesn't sound like anything else."


    The first single "Wrong" merges striking synths and an electronic swing with an evocative refrain punctuated by a robust groove. It's borderline danceable, but always chant-able.


    "It's just about a guy feeling insecure," explains Mikel. "I wrote it at a time of massive upheaval in my life. We all have that moment. You look over everything and think, 'I am an idiot!' It's not every day, but you wish you could start over. That's the idea."


    "California" turns a spotlight on a different side of the Golden State from the perspective of a true native. All the while, it still boasts an unshakable refrain and intricate instrumentation.


    "I grew up in California," he goes on. "My parents were hippies, and I was born in the back of a VW bus on the beach. I was around everybody from Beatniks to gang members to kids who just emigrated from Guatemala or Ethiopia. None of this had anything to do with the popular image of what California is-that idea of palm trees and movie stars. As soon as you've got an idea of utopia, it begs a dystopia. It's an idea of apocalypse right around the corner in a place that's considered ideal."


    Simultaneously, the title track tempers a distinct guitar bounce with entrancing harmonies, making for a provocative and potent dichotomy.


    "You can interact with all of these dope hand devices, but they make you sort of dopey an hour later," he sighs. "You make music with them. They can save you from a heart attack. They're little extensions of the things that make us fundamentally human, which is the desire to interact with one another. The machines are all of these things at the same time."


    In the middle of 2014 after moving on from Island Records, Epic Records C.E.O. L.A. Reid reached out and signed them-for the second time.


    "L.A. signed us way-back-when at Island," recalls Mikel. "He literally saw us at Bowery Ballroom in New York, came backstage, and offered us a record deal. The moment we were free, he sent us a deal memo. It's a pleasure to be working with him again. He's a big believer, and he brings a lot of energy to this."


    They've carried a similar energy through three full-length albums: The Airborne Toxic Event [2008], which spawned the gold-selling single "Sometime Around Midnight", All At Once [2010], and Such Hot Blood [2013]. In addition to reaching gold status, iTunes named "Sometime Around Midnight" the "#1 Alternative Song of the Year", and it spent a staggering eight weeks at #1 on Billboard's Heatseakers Chart. HBO utilized it on their high-profile Network Season Promo. The group has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman four times, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno four times, and on Jimmy Kimmel Live! three times. Moreover, they've taken the stage at festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza and sold over 50,000 tickets in 2013 alone.


    In many ways though, Dope Machines signals something of a rebirth.


    "It's like debuting a new phase," concludes Mikel. "It was a new approach. We've got a new label. We threw out everything we were tired of and moved on to a brand new palette. That was the goal. This isn't what The Airborne Toxic Event is supposed to be. This is who we are.

    Sonny Meets Hawk! (Pure Pleasure)

    This is a memorable meeting of a pair of genial giants - Sonny Rollins, who has been called again and again the boss of the modern tenor sax, and Coleman Hawkins, who is the father of jazz saxophone playing.



    Each has made enormous contributions to jazz improvisation, beyond the limits of his instrument. The sum total of their work forms the impressive foundation for this once-in-a-lifetime album.



    This recording is extraordinary in every sense, and not merely in that it marks the first time (except for a brief on-stage appearance at the 1963 Newport Jazz Festival, which inspired this studio recording) that these great musicians have played together. Each has blended his own strong personality with the other's, yet neither has lost his individuality. Where one reaches into the other's 'bag', it is done with musical logic and respect; always, the goal of a cohesive duet relationship is uppermost in each of their minds. And perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of this album is that neither musician plays safe; each exercises his powerful imagination throughout, running all the risks entailed in daring improvisation - but gaining also the satisfactions inherent in such an approach.



    Musicians:



    • Sonny Rollins (tenor saxophone)

    • Coleman Hawkins (tenor saxophone)

    • Paul Bley (piano)

    • Henry Grimes (bass)

    • Bob Cranshaw (bass)

    • Roy McCurdy (drums)




    Recording: July 1963 in New York City by Mickey Crofford and Paul Goodman

    Production: George Avakian



    About Pure Pleasure



    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, Pure Pleasure 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 existent 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 emphasize that Pure Pleasure 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 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 and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Secret Walls EP

    The Fresh & Onlys have had an unusually prolific past couple of years. On the heels of their critically acclaimed album Play It Strange, the band returns with a bold creative leap forward on their new EP Secret Walls. The cavernous opening sounds of Secret Walls reveal the strong threads of hazy post-punk melancholy that have been woven throughout the bands catalog and have now fully matured. Tim Cohens crooning baritone is more confident and commanding than ever as it is sewn into the dizzying tapestry of the melody, while the guitar sounds of Wymond Miles often suggest the dynamic interplay of Verlaine/Lloyd. Long in the works, this EP was recorded in guitarist Miles San Francisco studio and properly captures their ambience while bringing forward Kyle Gibsons lock-step drumming and the unique melodic play of bassist Shayde Sartin. It is the next logical step for the F&Os and their moody, jangly guitar pop.

    Centipede Hz

    Centipede Hz was co-produced by Animal Collective and Ben H. Allen III and recorded at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo TX (outside of El Paso) by Ben H. Allen III and mixed at Maze Studios in Atlanta, GA by Ben H. Allen III.



    Centipede Hz is the tenth full length Animal Collective album following the widely celebrated Merriweather Post Pavilion (2009) and also the first since Strawberry Jam (2007) to feature all four original band members: Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Geologist and Deakin. As the album's opening bars of drum crashes and radio interference on "Moonjock" immediately make clear, having returned as a four piece, Animal Collective have made their most widescreen and fully realized music to date.


    Once touring for Merriweather Post Pavilion was concluded at the end of 2009, Animal Collective released their visual album Oddsac on DVD. The film was also screened internationally at theaters and film festivals. The band created Transverse Temporal Gyrus, an installation for the Guggenheim Museum in New York City and subsequently released a 12" single of the performance and launched a website to distribute music from the event. The period between Merriweather Post Pavilion and Centipede Hz also saw the release of two solo albums: Avey Tare's Down There (2010) and Panda Bear's Tomboy (2011).


    Regrouping as a four piece with original member Deakin once more in the band, Animal Collective reconvened in their native Baltimore in January-March of 2011 to write material for Centipede Hz with a further session later in the year. Rather than swapping ideas over the internet and file-sharing Animal Collective were, for the first time in many years, exchanging ideas in the same room by playing live instruments.


    As a result Panda Bear returned to playing a sit-down drum kit for the first time since Here Comes The Indian (2003) and Geologist began playing live keyboards again. Along with using some of the samplers and sequencers with which they had previously been writing, the sound of Centipede Hz draws on the dynamics and energy of Animal Collective playing together as a band. The return of Deakin is at its most marked in "Wide Eyed," a song that he wrote, featuring his first ever lead-vocal performance and whose title captures the mood of Centipede Hz perfectly.


    Part of the inspiration for Centipede Hz included the band's memories of growing up listening to station announcements and commercials on the radio and imagining the after life of radio signals from the past, forgotten transmissions that are now lost in space and broadcasting music from other planets for other life forms. This is reflected in the sound of Centipede Hz, which features the white noise of radio interference and buried frequencies overlaid with the band's peerless melodic sensibilities and compositional methods. The result is a panoramic set of songs that shimmer with the confidence and wonder of Animal Collective's unique inner logic and the luminous warmth of their sound world.


    Animal Collective: Avey Tare (vocals, synthesizers, piano, guitar, sampler, sequencer, percussion); Panda Bear (vocals, drums, sampler, percussion); Deakin (vocals, baritone guitar, sampler, percussion); Geologist (sampler, synthesizers, piano, percussion) with: Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks, All Night Radio) lap steel guitar on "Today's Supernatural," "New Town Burnout," "Pulleys," and "Gotham," and melodica on "Rosie Oh" and Riverside Middle School Choir, which sings on "Father Time" and "New Town Burnout."
