    Ritualize (Awaiting Repress)

    ...attitude-thick rapping...with gorgeous
    production...
    - The New York Times


    "Lushlife is an under-the-radar treasure"
    - Stereogum


    From the moment you hear the bristling boom-bap chorus on album-opener
    Totally Mutual Feeling, it's apparent that Lushlife's third full-length finds the
    Philadelphia rapper-producer at his most introspective. Themes of isolation and
    mortality permeate Ritualize, a cinematic hour-long odyssey co-produced by
    enigmatic production trio, CSLSX (pronounced Casual Sex) and featuring
    contributions from Ariel Pink, Killer Mike, Freeway, Marissa Nadler, RJD2, and
    more. With CSLSX at the boards, an entire universe opens up for Lush, where
    the pulsating Juno synths of '80s LA night music sit side-by-side with
    gorgeously propulsive indie-leaning jams, and low-fi soul burners too. The
    resulting LP is a post-blog-era joint that seems to exhale the whole of the 20th
    century in a single, fascinating breath.


    After toiling over two self-produced LPs in the last half-decade, I felt
    compelled to bring on an outside production team for Ritualize, Lushlife
    (born Raj Haldar) explains. Not only did I want to broaden the musical
    palette, but I felt like the group production effort would give me a depth of
    focus on lyrical content and emotion that I hadn't previously been afforded.
    After a chance encounter with CSLSX, who had been quietly self-releasing
    low-fi dance gems to remarkable organic blog buzz, the newly-formed team
    set out on a three-year journey that would eventually yield their new joint
    album. By the time work began on Ritualize, Lush had already been riding a
    small wave of critical acclaim for his 2012 full-length, Plateau Vision, an album
    that made several year-end lists and was described by the Sunday New York
    Times as a melding of captivating rhymes with audacious, gorgeous production.
    Still, with Ritualize, Lushlife and CSLSX seem to have gone one deeper.


    From album cut, The Waking World, which finds Lushlife spitting thorough
    sixteens from the vantage of Mark David Chapman lying in wait for John
    Lennon, to Incantation, a song that's as much inspired by Allen Ginsberg's
    Howl as the general, street-level anxieties of urban life, Ritualize is nothing short
    of a step forward. For proof, look no further than Toynbee Suite, a 10-minute,
    4-movement rap epic that explores the strange Toynbee Tile meta-art
    conspiracy that has captivated Philadelphians for decades. As the centerpiece
    of the album, Toynbee Suite was the subject of a 2013 documentary, and
    itself represents the combined work of 20+ musicians, including RJD2, Nightlands,
    Yikes the Zero, and a full chamber orchestra. On the other hand, the
    CSLSX-produced, Hong Kong (Lady of Love), a collaboration with weird
    music godhead, Ariel Pink, is a sparse yet powerful four-on-the-floor ode to LA,
    inspired by the film soundtrack work of Giorgio Moroder, Vangelis, and others.

    Dream Life

    Dream Life is lush, imaginative album, full of atmosphere and magic. Ranging from the all-out drum assault of Black Doe (the chorus fill was once described as "sounding like someone threw a drum kit down the stairs") to the saturated, candy hued "Ray Of Sunlight", and the epic power-ballad overtones of Long Gone.

    Past Life


    Includes CD Of Full Album


    When Lost In The Trees set out to record Past Life, their
    third album for ANTI-, they knew they needed a break
    with the past. On their first two releases Picker had used an
    expanded six-member band to render his carefully composed,
    classical-inflected songs. For the new album, the band is pared
    to a lean electronic-rock four-piece; the arrangements are modern,
    spare, minimal, emphasizing groove and rhythm, blending the sonic architecture of 21st century electronic dance music, and the sensual swerve
    of post-Bowie 80s pop.


    The band made their next break with past practice by electing to work with
    an outside producer for the first time. Nicolas Vernhes, whose credits include
    breakthrough albums from Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors and Animal Collective, endorsed the band's new minimal aesthetic, and the
    question in the studio became, "How much can we strip
    away?" But fans that came to the band lured by the lush
    classicism of All Alone In An Empty House and A Church That
    Fits Our Needs (the Wall Street Journal's album of the year in 2012)
    will not be disappointed. The haunting lyricism of Picker's voice and
    melodies has not diminished in the new sparer approach, but instead rises
    to the fore, bringing out that timeless quality of the melodies that is the common
    ground of both folk and pop music. This pop quality, buried but always present
    in previous efforts, shines on Past Life; not pop in any trivial, retro sense, but the
    yearning lilt of Harry Nilsson or Mark Hollis, that floating melodicism that Relix
    found so "achingly beautiful."

    Come To Life

    Cities Aviv first garnered attention in 2011 with his debut release Digital Lows, in which he created a lush soundscape by casting an array of musical influences, along with the rich heritage of Memphis rap, into the alchemical cauldron and set it to boil. Digital Lows attempted to shine light into the murky depths of interconnected living in the material plane, and explore the detritus of a technological life, while also lyrically conveying the growing pains of the new self. 2012's Black Pleasure, sonically challenged listeners, as the rich tones of Digital Lows began to deconstruct into a blown-out and gritty resonance, transporting listeners to a separate reality where the lines of pleasure and pain are entangled and debauch is the natural order. Amid this chaos, Aviv pummeled listeners with an appeal to assess their own realities, habits, and processes, and asserts that "Life is Real," a seemingly simple statement, yet a fact that is often taken for granted. His third album Come to Life sees Aviv come full circle- finding a balance amid the turbulence of burgeoning adulthood in the URL and IRL, and arising from the transformative flames as a harbinger of the new paradigm. Aviv's street gospel stylings affix themselves in union with the eternal essence, and exist outside of the confines of trend, genre, or time-signature, flowing organically within the digital corridor. While his work will forever remain personal, Come to Life is also universal, and petitions listeners to reclaim their individualities, their dreams, and their true desires. Cities Aviv is Wilbert Gavin. Life is real. Come to Life.

    Around Midnight

    Import


    In 1960, pop vocalist Julie London was really cranking out albums for the successful label Liberty Records. The success of her 1955 hit Cry Me a River put Liberty into overdrive and London responded by making some of the strongest records of her career. Her ability to interpret a song was at its strongest in the late '50s and early '60s, as is evidenced on the shimmering Around Midnight. While some of her best recordings were front of small jazz combos, Around Midnight proves that London was just as effective in front of larger orchestras and bands. The drowsy Black Coffee and lazy Lush Life typify the late-night feel of the album, leading right into The Wee Small Hours of the Morning. [Julie...At Home was released in 1996 as a two-fer as Julie...At Home/Around Midnight.]

    What's New


    Mastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound


    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Tip-On Gatefold Jacket By Stoughton Printing


    Linda Ronstadt was the leading female vocalist in rock 'n' roll when, sensing that it was time to change direction, she starred in the Broadway production of Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance, as well as the accompanying movie.


    Pirates of Penzance led the singer to a collaboration with bandleader/arranger Nelson Riddle, who arranged and conducted this 1983 collection of pop standards What's New. It was the first in a trilogy of 1980s albums Ronstadt recorded with Riddle. What's New was a considerable hit, reaching No. 3 on the charts, where it stayed for five consecutive weeks, and selling to date more than three million copies. Ronstadt's next two albums with Riddle followed - Lush Life in 1984) and For Sentimental Reasons in 1986 - also albums of pre-rock standards.


    Let's just say that the vocals on this Analogue Productions reissue, mastered from the original analog tape by Doug Sax and Robert Hadley, have never sounded richer, with a broader soundstage, and more clarity and detail in the orchestral accompaniment. Such a sweet record, made even better with a Stoughton Printing tip-on jacket showcasing the vibrant original cover designed by John Kosh. You'll settle in for some impeccably-voiced standards from pop's golden age and be transfixed by Ronstadt's interpretive skills.

    Horse Feathers third album, second on Kill Rock Stars,Thistled Springdisplays a rich progression more textured and lush than the band's previous two albums, it also captures the skillful interplay of the band's current touring lineup of Justin Ringle (on vocals & Guitar), violinist Nathan Crockett, cellist Catherine Odell, and multi-instrumentalist Sam Cooper. Lyrically Ringle continues to explore broken relationships, longing, and pain, but this album has an undercurrent of heat that translates to a thawing of frozen hearts, and music which rushes like spring torrents, all of which points to a resurgence of life after a hard winter.

    Earth, Wind & Fire

    Earth, Wind & Fire's supremely confident debut still blows our minds today. Bandleader Maurice White melds a bold, James Brown-style horn section with dreamy harmonies, tight arrangements, and positive lyrics with a hint of the spacey astrological vibe that inspired the band's name. Uplifting tracks like Help Somebody and the cuddly ballad Love Is Life are the perfect intersection of funk and psychedelic soul. The lush vocal blend of Sherry Scott, Wade Flemons, Don Whitehead, and White comes alive-and hints at the group's later hits.

    Co-produced with John Alagia, The Graduation Ceremony marks Jospeh Arthurs first solo album since Nuclear Daydream (2006) and follow-up to Fistful of Mercy, his 2010 collaboration with Ben Harper and Dhani Harrison. I wanted to make something simple, says Arthur, who originally planned to release the project as a duo with the albums drummer, the legendary Jim Keltner (Bob Dylan, John Lennon). The Graduation Ceremony began as a minimally produced, acoustic album of classic songwriting that grew to be an elegantly orchestrated, haunting body of work.


    Joseph Arthurs music has been described as a dynamic swirl of noise that somehow appears magically around him (NPR), emotional (but tuneful) exorcisms (Entertainment Weekly), and lush, poetic, squalling, spiritual, and strange. Just like life (Boston Globe). Vanity Fair has hailed him as one of our most emotionally revealing and talented singer-songwriters. Michael Stipe once told the Los Angeles Times, Jo is one of those rare writer-performers where you get the sense, whatever you believe, that something greater is being channeled through his music and voice. It touches something very deep and universal.

    Off The Wall

    Ranked 68/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Michael Jackson recorded solo prior to Off the Wall, but the 1979 album was undoubtedly his breakthrough and it firmly established the former Motown star as a prolific charting solo artist in his own right. Disco beats accompany a fusion of rock, soul and funk here in a visionary mix that is equal parts dancefloor and lush ballads.


    Songs like Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Off The Wall, Rock With You, She's Out Of My Life and Girlfriend display the brilliant songwriting and intoxicating blend of melody and rhythm that would turn Jackson into the biggest pop star in the world.

    Lenses

    Soft Metals' Lenses is a continuation of their
    ethos aiming directly at your body and subconscious mind with an intimacy that only lovers can bring.


    The song "Lenses" describes the experience of shifted consciousness with the lyrics "breaking through my perception of you, breaking through my concept of life". It celebrates the feeling of escape from a mind imprisoned with lack of presence and stuck in habit all set to an earnest beat and lush enigmatic melodies that entwine and seduce. "Tell Me", "No Turning Back", When I Look Into Your Eyes" expresses that nervous, vulnerable feeling of falling for someone, but questioning the reality of the situation asking "Is this love true? Or are we just lost in lust?", "when you said you loved me, I laid my whole life down", "When I look into your eyes, I wonder if we'll meld". "In the Air", perhaps the most movement inspiring track of the album, is a dense, pulsating piece about the power of nature, the effects of seasonal changes on all living things that rule over sexuality, productivity, and inspiration- the basis of man's various forms of mysticism.

    Put Your Back N 2 It

    Perfume Genius is Mike Hadreas, a Seattle songwriter whose jarring 2010 debut album, Learning, was called an album of rare, redemptive beauty, one of the most uniquely endearing and quietly forceful debut albums of recent years, and established him as one of the most singular songwriters around today.


    His new album, Put Your Back N 2 It, is much more universal, addressing intimacy, power, family, secrecy, and hope not just through his impressionistic lyrics, but the music itself, which is as lush as Learning was stark. Its a gorgeous soundtrack for anyone trying to keep it together in everyday life, with interest in moving forward. Recorded by Drew Morgan and John Goodmanson.

    Family

    In an era of social media and perceived self-impor tance, Noah Gundersen
    is in many ways the antithesis of his time. Noah's EP Family pays homage to the
    people who have shaped his life - rather than the self-aggrandizing so common
    to the often homogeneous world of singer-songwriters.


    "Family comes in many forms," says Noah. "I t lives with us, for better and for
    worse. I t shapes us. That 's what this EP is about." The songs on Family are consistently
    impressive and defy genre. Whereas roots-tinged songs like "Family "
    conjure up shades of a solo R yan Adams, the sweeping and ethereal "Fire," bears
    similarities to the lush harmonic feats of Fleet Foxes. Perhaps the album's standout
    track is the pulsating "David," which combines the haunting dark ness of Tom
    Waits with the lyrical angst of Neil Young. " The song is about who I want to be,
    while realizing who I am. I want to be less like my Father and more like my Dad."

    Adult Film

    Tim Kasher seems to never rest. Since 1997, he has written and released 12 full-length albums both as a solo artist and with his bands Cursive and The Good Life, and has crisscrossed North America and Europe countless times on tour. His newest album, sophomore solo effort Adult Film, began coming together in late 2011, just shortly after Cursive finished recording their seventh LP I Am Gemini (Saddle Creek, 2012). Kasher continued to work on it over the next year before heading to Electrical Audio studio in his adopted hometown of Chicago, IL in spring 2013.


    Adult Film is more thematically elastic than any other of his recent albums, and spans songs that reflect on matters such as aging and mortality, growing up and growing older, and how these things impact our relationships-including the way we interact with and view the life around us. Kasher is as lyrically incisive as ever: the album is packed
    with thoughtful apprehensions, cleverly turned phrases, and reflections on himself and the world at large, all run through his distinctive filter of dry wit and frequent self-deprecation.


    Musically, the new album plays down the orchestral element of his lush debut solo album The Game Of Monogamy (Saddle Creek, 2010) and offers a more direct, yet no less affecting, blend of rock and pop. Kasher is aided throughout by Sara Bertuldo (bass, vocals), Patrick Newbery (organ, keys, synths, horns), and Dylan Ryan (drums) - who backed him while touring around Monogamy-as well as Nate Kinsella (drums; of Make Believe and Birthmark); Laura Stevenson (vocals; of Laura Stevenson and the Cans); Matt Focht (drums; of Head Of Femur); Jenna Morrison (vocals; of Conduits); Laura Carrozza (flute; of Aficionado); and Sarah Holtschlag (saw). Adult Film was mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Wye Oak, Explosions In The Sky) at Elmwood Recording in Dallas, TX.


    Kasher has become known throughout his career for insightful, literate, and candid songwriting, and his solo work and albums with Cursive and The Good Life have been praised by Rolling Stone, Esquire, The New York Times, Alternative Press, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, The A.V. Club, and Vice, among many others.

    Standards

    British soul legend Seal returns with his new album, Standards - combining his unique voice with some of the greatest jazz standards and swing classics ever written. An artist who's been at the top of his game throughout his 30-year career, Seal's 10th studio album breathes life into iconic hits, paying tribute to legends including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nina Simone. It will be released on 10th November through Decca Records/Virgin EMI.


    Seal said: "This is the album I have always wanted to make. I grew up listening to music from the Rat Pack era, so recording these timeless tunes was a lifelong dream. It was a true honor to collaborate with the same musicians who performed with Frank Sinatra and so many of my favorite artists, in the very same studios where the magic was first made - it was one of the greatest days of my recording career."


    Seal's new album brings the glamour of Old Hollywood straight to the present. It is a natural successor to his series of soul records, made a decade ago which sold over 5 million copies around the world. Standards hears Seal's signature, velvety warm vocals bring to life classics made popular by Frank Sinatra (such as 'Luck Be A Lady', 'I've Got You Under My Skin' and 'It Was A Very Good Year'), Ella Fitzgerald ('I'm Beginning to See The Light') and Nina Simone ('I Put A Spell on You'). Elsewhere, there are lush orchestral moments captured on 'Smile' (Charlie Chaplin) and the Cole Porter gem, 'Love For Sale'.


    The unmistakable richness of Standards is largely down to Seal's choice to collaborate with the very same, legendary musicians who have performed with Frank Sinatra - Randy Waldman (pianist who toured with Sinatra and Paul Anka), Chuck Berghofer (bass player, who had performed with Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Charles) and Greg Fields (drummer who also performed with Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder).


    The making of Standards became a real pilgrimage for the Grammy Award-winning artist. The songs were recorded in the famous Capitol Records in Los Angeles (the very studio where Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat "King" Cole and many others have created some of the most treasured music of our time), and United Studios, which was established by Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, where the latter recorded It Was A Very Good Year.


    In a career spanning three decades, racking up over 30 million records sales worldwide and a string of Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello awards along the way, Seal continues to shine as one of the world's brightest music stars. His new album is full of musical gems which glisten when brought to life with his stunning voice.
