    The Child Star (Limited Edition)

    Awol One has been a force of underground hip hop for over a decade thanks to his work with the LA crew The Shape Shifters, countless solo endeavors, as well as his critically acclaimed release with Low End Theory curator Daddy Kev, Souldoubt. Nathaniel Motte is a worldwide superstar, part of the multi-platinum electro-pop duo, 3OH!3, who has produced hits for the likes of Ke$ha and Katy Perry.


    Their new album, The Child Star, is what happens when these two forces collide: ten tracks of electro hip hop madness intended to melt your train and rock the party. Bridging the gap between club dance and hip hop; it's an 808 extravaganza that is guaranteed to get bodies moving! The album also features appearances by Slug of Atmosphere and Abstract Rude.

    Jessie Jones

    In 2013, Jessie Jones gave up her possessions, vanished into the nothingness of farm country, and found herself on interstellar overdrive - far away from her Disneyfied home in Orange County. For three years, she had fronted Burger Records' Feeding People, OC's answer to Black Sabbath. The teenage byproduct of gloomy acid trips and gospel choirs, Feeding People released two albums, got signed to Innovative Leisure in 2011, and played Low End Theory with Radiohead's Thom Yorke . The 19-year-old Jones, with her bluesy growl and whimsical melodies, was being compared to Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, and Screaming Females' Marissa Paternoster. In 2014, her voice returned to her with primal intent - like the caterwauling echoes of coyotes deep in the Hollywood hills. Earlier this year, Jones began singing with paranormal proto-punk outfit Death Valley Girls, which allowed her to release her demons and find salvation during what Jones describes as the most cosmically ordained project of her life. Reveling in the quantum wobble of her own alternative reality, Jones is now releasing her self-titled debut on Burger Records by channeling the voices in her head; not quite the sanitarium blues of Roky Erickson, but a mÉlange of Jim Morrison mysticism; a more stripped-down MGMT meets early-Grouplove; and Syd Barrett reverie. Under the guidance of producer Bobby Harlow (The Go) and Burger's Studio B, Jones' debut this summer will include guest appearances by drummer Duke Mushroom, violinist Hannah Glass, and Studio B regular King Tuff.

    Fated


    A luscious, elegant, electronic work - Los Angeles Times


    Hip-hop instrumentals and electronic sketches;
    pristine and prim - FACT


    Gorgeously haunted - Pitchfork


    We seek the new because of the numbness. If you listen to enough
    music, you're familiar with the feeling. Sounds get recycled so often
    that they can seem like geometric configurations organized via Wav
    files. Trends get time-stamped faster than a triplicate trap hi-hat.


    The most rare records emerge outside of any clearly delineated orbit.
    They're solitary visions that supply their own rhythm and arsenal.
    Music that reverberates through heart, brain, and spine. This is Nosaj
    Thing's third album, Fated.


    "I just tried to escape really, and escape even what's going on in the
    music world," says Nosaj Thing, the LA producer born Jason Chung. "It
    just felt so suffocating in a way. I just wanted to do my own thing."


    It's been six years since Nosaj Thing emerged among the vanguard of
    Low End Theory-affiliated producers. His debut Drift created 31st
    century tones and chromatic textures so sleek that they inspired
    innumerable Soundcloud imitators.


    None could match its moody iridescence, faded sadness and funky
    swing. Bach collided with Boards of Canada. Spaceships came
    equipped with rear view mirrors and a booming system bumping
    G-Funk and warped soul. Pitchfork called it "gorgeously haunted."
    Resident Advisor said it "exists in its own dimension and feeds off its
    own exhaust: full of alien choirs, conquered computers, and refracting
    stained-glass light."


    Fated exists in this same alternate dimension, but further out. If
    comparisons previously existed with other artists within the LA beat
    scene, Nosaj has rendered them baseless. His second album on
    Innovative Leisure (after 2013's Home) seeks celestial escape through
    streamlining.


    "The last record took out so much of me. I just wanted to go back to
    simplifying and overthinking so much. It was a battle," Nosaj says.
    "The soul of a song, the essence of a song-whatever you want to call
    it-should be simple."


    By stripping away all but what's really necessary, the sounds harness
    an unusual directness. Guest appearances are rare, save for vocals
    from Whoarei on "Don't Mind Me," and Chicago rap phenomenon,
    Chance the Rapper. The latter gravely spits on "Cold Stares," invoking
    terminal fevers, empty beds, devil's whispers, and insomniac fears.


    If comparisons crop up, Fated has most in common with records like
    Burial's Untrue or Dilla's Donuts. Requiems that canvass the shadowy
    hinterlands between life and death, darkness and light, loneliness and
    love. Eternal themes re-imagined in ingenious fashion.


    "The album name came from all these coincidences that just kept on
    happening to me," Nosaj says. "Specific interaction with specific
    people in unexpected places. A perpetual feeling of dÉjà vu."


    It's foundation rests on that intangible thing that some call fate or
    primordial feeling. Numbness receding, old emotions flooding back,
    un-tampered visions. Fated is what you can't explain, so it's best to
    just listen.

    Con Todo El Mundo (Awaiting Repress)

    Formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald "DJ"
    Johnson on drums; globetrotting Texan trio Khruangbin present their
    second album 'Con Todo El Mundo.'


    Whereas their 2015 debut album 'The Universe Smiles Upon You' was
    influenced by 60s and 70s Thai cassettes and compilations of southeast
    Asian pop, rock and funk, 'Con Todo El Mundo' hops east over
    India to take inspiration in similarly under discovered funk and soul
    sounds of the Middle-East, particularly from Iran. Laura Lee explains
    the album's title: "My grandpa would always ask me 'Como me quieres?'
    ('how much do you love me'?), and he'd only ever accept one
    response. 'Con todo el mundo' (With all the world)."


    Throughout 'Con Todo El Mundo', Laura Lee's melodic low-end
    theory, Mark's lyrical, free-role guitar lines, and DJ's ever-steady,
    ever-ready backbeat form something greater than their parts. A
    vibe-synchronous soul-unit travelling the planet, honing their craft,
    absorbing the sights, sounds and feels from cultures across the globe,
    processing them through the Khruangbin filter and gifting the result...
    with all the world.
