    Right From Real


    "Like a fever dream of Julia Holter
    merging with Grimes, Ainsworth's future
    visions weave neoclassical flourishes and
    enchanted melody-mangles into cool 80's
    sound-beds, and it sounds fantastic."
    - Dazed


    "These soundscapes can provide a myriad
    of emotion, from reassurance to
    discomfort, anxiety to enthusiasm. [...] it's
    an unexpected achievement for such a
    young artist and a testament to the power
    of music as a purely visceral force."
    - Portals


    Composer / producer / singer Lydia Ainsworth has been secretly writing
    and recording songs over the past three years from bedrooms and
    basements between Toronto and Brooklyn. What began as pass-time
    sketches between composing music for film and multimedia projects has
    over time revealed an enchanting collection of experimental pop songs
    with a life of their own.


    Blurring the boundaries between indie music, filmic orchestration, and
    electronic music, Lydia's debut "Right From Real" thrives on haunting
    melodies and draws inspiration from a wide range of musical sources -
    Verdi's Requiem, Ace of Base, Bulgarian Choirs, Bernard Herrmann, Tones
    on Tail, Art of Noise to name a few. This sense of unexpected marriages
    of influence flows throughout much of Lydia's work which features use of
    voice sampling and string arrangements woven into a unique minimalist
    fabric.

    Perfectly imperfect - that's one way to describe LA based punk act, The Regrettes. Writing songs that proudly bear a brazen and unabashed attitude in the vein of acts Courtney Barnett or Karen O - with a pop aesthetic reminiscent of 50's and 60's acts a la the Temptations or Buddy Holly - the LA based four piece create infectious, punk driven tracks.

    Lead by outspoken frontwoman, Lydia Night, and comprised of Genessa Gariano on guitar, Sage Nicole on bass and drummer Maxx Morando, the group have left the LA rock scene floored, managing to capture the hearts of jaded rock critics while opening for acts like Kate Nash, Jack Off Jill, Bleached, Pins, Deep Vally and more.

    The Secret Sisters

    The Alabama-reared siblings, Laura and Lydia Rogers, whose new album is steeped in the familial camaraderie and mesmerizing harmonies braced by their Mussel Shoals roots, recorded their inaugural musical effort at Nashville's renowned Blackbird Studio. Produced by revered county knob-turner Dave Cobb (Waylon Jennings and Jamey Johnson), and executive-produced by T-Bone Burnett, The Secret Sisters' sound captured on their debut has been described by Burnett as as close to pure as it gets, and I've been doing this for forty years.



    Recorded in a marathon two-week recording session, the producers also brought in vintage analog recording equipment and vintage microphones, determined to properly capture the sisters' magical harmonizing and stunning vocal power. Their signature sound is evident on songs such as Why Don't Ya Love Me, Why Baby Why, and the lifting anthem Tennessee Me, among others.



    The Secret Sisters co-wrote several of the songs on the new album and reworked found treasures, including the Frank Sinatra classic Something Stupid. They also enlisted the support of legendary country musicians such as pedal steel great Robbie Turner and piano legend Pig Robbins, among others.

    The Darkening Plain

    Transmaniacon take the blueprint and soundworld laid down by Bloodrock, Mountain, Steppen-wolf, Blue Oyster Cult and Alice Cooper, and add a hefty slab of dark doom, hard riffs, punk atti-tude and stoner metal to ramp it up for the 21st century. The vibe is steeped in 70's rock, but the sound is definitely 'NOW' From the Sabbathian sludge of 'City Of Chaos' to the Dead Kennedy-esque 'An Eye For An Eye' and the stoner moves of 'Chasing The Insane' the album is shot through with twists and chock full of riffs. This is hard rock at its hardest and heaviest set against an expansive post apocalyptic backdrop. Nothing encapsulates the cinematic darkness more than the album opener, which grafts a progressive approach to hard rock and doom. 'Quintessence of Dust' is a 24 minute monolithic mindfuck of epic proportions, the now completed score to the still-born science fiction horror story possibly. An intense listen that features the spoken word talents of punk poet Lydia Lunch. 'Quintessence Of Dust' is a grim eco warning, a tale of alien invasion and payback time for a future Earth's corpulent consumer-ism, rampant waste and self centred greed. A hideous flesh and metal robot army, hybrid humans inadvertently created by man himself, invade, take over and consume the Earth Sleeve is by one of the real legends of horror, sci-fi and fantasy illustration, Ian Miller.

    Beetlejuice Soundtrack

    Reissue


    Danny Elfman provides one of his most quintessentially Elfman-esque scores for one of Tim Burton's most quintessentially Burton-esque movies, Beetlejuice. The film's dark yet sardonically funny Main Titles is among Elfman's all-time best moments, bustling along with a dark joie de vivre (or is it joie de morte?) that defines the spooky fun of both this movie, and his collaboration with Burton. The score's stylized world also includes the ironically perky Travel Music; Incantation, a tensely percussive cue that unfolds into exaggerated brass and ghostly vocals and organs; and the eerily pretty but still whimsical Lydia Discovers. The tip-toeing pizzicato strings and pianos, and the theatrical brass, organs, harps, and percussion that appear on every track -- most definitively on tracks like Enter...The Family / Sand Worm Planet -- underline the film's live-action cartoonishness, with the music's hyperactive shifts, and the addition of Harry Belafonte's Jump In Line and Banana Boat Song (Day-O) just adding another layer of quirkiness to the whole thing. A perfect mix of silliness and spookiness, Beetlejuice remains one of Elfman's most consistent scores.

    Put Your Needle Down

    The Secret Sisters' incredible story is as simple and true as the effortless harmonies that got them here. Begin anywhere -- the thick and fertile brambles
    of their own family history or light upon the branches of the wondrous, fractal menagerie that makes up their self-titled debut album. The pair of Alabama
    sisters direct from Muscle Shoals (barely twenty-somethings themselves) caught the attention of T Bone Burnett, who signed on as Executive Producer of
    their debut album after spending time with Laura and Lydia and hearing them sing live, and is releasing the album on his new label created especially for
    this release -- Beladroit. As Burnett explains, I have been making music for over forty years and The Secret Sisters album is as close to pure as it gets.


    Their self-titled debut album consists of ballads, originals, and cover songs such as Why Don't Ya Love Me?, Why Baby Why, and the Frank Sinatra
    song Somethin' Stupid. The album also includes two originals written by Laura Rogers: Tennessee Me and Waste the Day. The album was recorded
    in two weeks at Blackbird studios. Their eleven-song debut was produced by Dave Cobb, who has worked with artists such as Waylon Jennings and
    Jamey Johnson, and also executive produced by T-Bone Burnett. The Secret Sisters brough in studio musicians such as steel guitar player Robbie
    Turner and pianist Pig Robbins. Also included on the album is a cover of the 60s rock song by then teenage singer Nancy Baron I've got a Feeling,
    written by Wally Zober and C. Laverne. The album was also recorded with classic analog equipment. The production team and the Sisters utilized vintage
    microphones and classic recording techniques, down to the same type of tape they would have used fifty years ago.

    Improvisations For Theremin And Piano (Awaiting Repress)

    An album as unique as it is hauntingly beautiful, this collection of improvised pieces by theremin prodigy Carolina Eyck and fellow Leipzig-based pianist Christopher Tarnow is the only album of its kind. Recorded in close collaboration with producer Allen Farmelo, these tracks truly challenge the accepted rules of any genre. The music carries the harmonic sophistication of classical, the quasi-atonal sensibilities of Coltrane and an unexpected sense of wonder and play.


    Yet there is a darkness that lurks between the notes, a haunted sensibility informed by the production team's near miss of a lethal pedestrian-car accident that killed a young boy just days before the sessions. It's a feeling they couldn't shake, and it lingers in the music, adding depth and power to Eyck and Tarnow's virtuosic command of their instruments.


    Eyck studied Theremin from the young age of 7 with Lydia Kavina, who developed the early technique with the now legendary student of Leon Theremin himself, Clara Rockmore. By age 14 Eyck had developed her own technique, which she published at age 17 in one of the most influential instruction books on the instrument, The Art of Playing the Theremin. Her technique is generally regarded as the most advanced in the world.


    Farmelo's Producer's Notes provide both context for the theremin itself as well as insight into the way this team intentionally broke down the roles of composer, instrumentalist and producer in order to arrive at an egalitarian collaboration that would result in music borne directly from Eyck's own instinctual sense of her unique instrument. Rarely does one hear a performer from within the classical tradition play with such expressive freedom, and the team decided to leave all the music unedited in order to preserve that quality.


    The broader goals of this album are to help free the theremin from the confines of stereotypes built up through Hollywood's sci-fi and horror soundtracks, as well as through the more recent adoption of the instrument into the noisier side of electronic music. Improvisations for Theremin and Piano presents the instrument's most virtuosic performer in an exceptionally candid and heartfelt recording.

    Time To Go Home

    Chastity belt is a rock band consisting of four friends - guitarists Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm. They met in a tiny college town in eastern Washington, but their story begins for real in Seattle, that celebrated home of Macklemore and the twelfth man. Following a post-grad summer apart, a handful of shows and enthusiastic responses from the city's diy community led them, as it has countless others, into a cramped practice space. They emerged with a debut album, No Regerts, sold it out faster than anyone involved thought possible, and toured America, a country that embraced them with open-ish arms. Now they're back and the tab is settled, the lights are out, the birds are making noise even though the sun isn't really up yet: it's time to go home, their second long-player and first for hardly art. In the outside world, they realized something crucial: they didn't have to play party songs now that their audience didn't consist exclusively of inebriated 18-22 year olds, as it did in that college town. Though still built on a foundation of post-post-punk energy, jagged rhythms, and instrumental moves that couldn't be anyone else's, the songs they grew into in the months that followed are equal parts street-level takedown and gray-skied melancholy. They embody the sensation of being caught in the center of a moment while floating directly above it; shapiro's world spins around her on on the floor, grounded by Grimm and Truscott's most commanding playing committed to tape. They pay tribute to writer Sheila Heti on drone and John Carpenter with the thing, and deliver a parallel-universe stoner anthem influenced by electrelane with joke. recorded by JosÉ Díaz Rohena at the unknown, a desecrated church and former sail factory in anacortes, and mixed with a cathedral's worth of reverb by Matthew Simms (guitarist for legendary british post-punks and one-time tourmates Wire), time to go home sees Chastity Belt take the nights out and bad parties of their past to their stretching points, watch the world around them break apart in anticipatory haze, and rebuild it in their own image with stunning clarity before anyone gets hungover.

    Late Night Tales: BADBADNOTGOOD (Unmixed) (Awaiting Repress)

    Canadian quartet BadBadNotGood take on creating the ultimate "late night" selection of tracks from their record collections.


    The original trio of Matthew Tavares, Alex Sowinski and Chester Hansen formed while studying music at Toronto's Humber College (they've recently added Leland Whitty to the line-up). A shared appreciation of hip hop and instrumental covers of Gucci Mane and Earl Sweatshirt suggested a worldly outlook and reciprocated love from Tyler The Creator and Ghostface Killah, with whom they made 2015's Sour Soul. Their last album, the critically-acclaimed IV, turned heads and their collaborators continue to multiply: Snoop Dogg, Kaytranada and Kendrick Lamar among them.


    "We were really excited to have the chance to put together a LateNightTales compilation, it's a great organisation. We decided to use it as a vehicle to show everyone all the amazing music we have gotten to experience by touring and meeting new people.


    Every track on this comp was either shown to us by an incredible person or made by one of our friends. We also included a little cover of a song by one of our favourite current musicians, Andy Shauf. These artists, as well as many, many others, have influenced us to create, and kept our deep love of music alive. This mix will keep you company on a quiet night by yourself or with friends. You can check it out on the plane, the bus, a long walk, or any situation where you want a soundtrack for reflection and meditation."


    - BADBADNOTGOOD May 2017


    You can even hear little bits of BadBadNotGood through this mix, as though they are transmitting parts of themselves through the music they select. Perhaps the keys on Admas' hilariously expensive 'Anchi Bale Game', maybe, or the arrangements on Delegation's mighty Britsoul tune 'Oh Honey' or the groove from 'Vida Antiga', Erasmo Carlos' Brazilian classic. As Janis almost sang, take another little piece of my art.


    This is an international effort: Velly Joonas' Estonian version of 'Feel Like Makin' Love', Kiki Gyan, Admas and Francis Bebey representing Africa (Ghana, Ethiopia and Cameroon respectively), Les Prospection from France, Scots' Boards Of Canada and fellow Canucks River Tiber and Charlotte Day Wilson.


    Finally, there's the no-small-matter of the Late Night Tales cover version, in which BadBadNotGood take on Andy Shauf's 'To You' is turned into a mournful delight. while the Queen Of Siam herself, Lydia Lunch, delivers a sexual sermon involving only you, her and Jim Beam.


    Badbad, indeed: so good they said it twice.

    Pop Crimes

    Rowland S. Howard started playing in teenage bands in late
    70s Melbourne. Whilst still a callow youth he wrote "Shivers," an
    undisputed classic, (quietly ignoring the fact that Rowland perhaps
    doesn't see it that way and approaches the song as if it was written
    by someone else). The song was recorded by his band The Boys Next
    Door who mutated into the Birthday Party and then relocated to
    Europe to wage a guerrilla campaign against the trivialities of the
    80s, until they turned their fire upon themselves and disintegrated
    mid-decade.


    Whilst his former associates have moved on to weekend colour
    supplement acceptability, Rowland has commonly been perceived
    as the banished wastrel prince... exiled to a squalid garret on the
    colder edges of the kingdom, accompanied only by his dreams and
    inclinations. His demeanour (pale, gaunt, stick thin, sickly, dark
    humoured, fatalistic) has perhaps inadvertently added far too much
    credence to this interpretation of events. The shadow of this myth
    has seemingly obscured the sheer volume of his creativity and the
    singularity of his musical vision.


    Always respected by his peers, a scan through Rowland's
    catalogue of work sees him allied with the likes of Lydia Lunch,
    Thurston Moore, Wim Wenders, Barry Adamson, The Gun Club, Nikki
    Sudden, the Beasts Of Bourbon, the Hungry Ghosts and HTRK.
    Rowland's own ensemble These Immortal Souls gun their engines
    in the ill-lit background and the legacy of his work with The Birthday
    Party scores the skin of successive generations of musicians and
    fans.


    But it's a history Rowland would gleefully put a match to. With or
    without it Rowland S. Howard would make tense, beautiful music,
    would deliver us his personal vision of the world, would create Pop
    Crimes.


    Long-time faithful friends Mick Harvey (who played with Rowland
    for over 30 years), JP Shilo (Hungry Ghosts) and producer Lindsay
    Gravina make for a formidable backline. Out front the guitar playing
    couldn't be any one else but Rowland S Howard and his weary,
    almost journalistic vocal delivery dispassionately sits amidst the
    sweaty panic of the music, adding to the ill ease.


    The band lurch in to Pop Crimes as if dragging a rain soaked body
    across a muddy field. The ghosts of Lee Hazlewood, Snatch, Sergio
    Leone, The Shangri-Las and nameless guys from a never known chain
    gang watch on. Within the first few breaths Rowland references
    Stalin, Calvary and genocide, whilst razoring guitar lines the current
    crop of post-punk revisionists could only fantasize about.


    "Shut Me Down" is Rowland at his most romantic, though
    inevitably it's shot through with loss and longing. If only Dusty
    Springfield were alive to revel in its drama. Talk Talk's 'Life's What
    You Make It' is re-imagined as if it had risen from the grind of a
    Detroit auto plant's assembly line. '(I Know) A Girl Called Johnny'
    sees Jonnine D from HTRK sidle up to the microphone for a duet
    that will melt even the coldest of hearts. It's a glorious missing link
    between the New York girl group sound and the street smarts of
    Suicide. Townes Van Zandt's "Nothin" is given a chilling tenement
    building transformation. "Wayward Man" has the band wailing like
    alarm sirens before Rowland emerges at his most contemplative
    with the gorgeous, fragile build of "Ave Maria." Final track "The
    Golden Age Of Bloodshed" takes the album out on a swaggering,
    swashbuckling epic, with salvation slipping through the narrator's
    fingers.

    Why Love Now

    Pissed Jeans have been making gnarly noise for 13 years, and on their
    fifth album, Why Love Now, the male-fronted quartet is taking aim at
    the mundane discomforts of modern life-from fetish webcams to
    office-supply deliveries. Rock bands can retreat to the safety of what
    rock bands usually sing about. So 60 years from now, when no one
    has a telephone, bands will be writing songs like, 'I'm waiting for her
    to call me on my telephone.' Kids are going to be like, 'Grandpa, tell
    me, what was that?' I'd rather not shy away from talking about the
    internet or interactions in 2016, says frontman Matt Korvette.


    Pissed Jeans' gutter-scraped amalgamation of sludge, punk, noise,
    and bracing wit make the band-Korvette, Brad Fry (guitar), Randy
    Huth (bass) and Sean McGuinness (drums)-a release valve for a
    world where absurdity seems in a constant battle trying to outdo
    itself. Why Love Now picks at the bursting seams that are barely
    holding 21st-century life together. Take the grinding rave-up The Bar
    Is Low, which, according to Korvette, is about how every guy seems
    to be revealing themselves as a shithead. It seems like every guy is
    getting outed, across every board of entertainment and politics and
    music. There's no guy that isn't a total creep.


    The lyrics on Why Love Now are particularly pointed about gender
    relations and the minefield they present in 2016. 'It's Your Knees' is
    about the endless, unrequested, commenting on if you'd fuck a girl.
    'My great aunt won a cooking contest.' 'Oh, that's pretty hot. I'd hit
    that,' says Korvette. On Love Without Emotion Korvette channels
    Nick Cave's guttural side while bemoaning his detachment over
    cavernous guitars. Ignorecam twists the idea of fetish cam shows-
    where the woman just ignores you and watches TV or eats macaroni
    and cheese or talks on the phone-into a showcase for Korvette's
    rancid yelp and his bandmates' pummeling rock.


    As they did on their last album, 2013's Honeys, Pissed Jeans offer a
    couple of fuck that shit type songs about the working world. And the
    startling I'm A Man, which comes at the album's midpoint, finds
    author Lindsay Hunter (Ugly Girls) taking center stage, delivering a
    self-penned monologue of W.B. Mason-inspired erotica-office small
    talk about pens and coffee given just enough of a twist to expose its
    filthy underside, with Hunter adopting a grimacing menace that
    makes its depiction of curdled masculinity even more harrowing.


    No Wave legend Lydia Lunch shacked up in Philadelphia to produce
    Why Love Now alongside local metal legend Arthur Rizk (Eternal
    Champion, Goat Semen). I knew she wasn't a traditional producer,
    Korvette says of Lunch. I like how she's so cool and really intimidating.
    She ended up being so fucking awesome and crazy. She was
    super into it, constantly threatening to bend us over the bathtub. I'm
    not really sure what that entails, but I know she probably wasn't
    joking." The combination of Lunch's spiritual guidance and Rizk's
    technical prowess supercharged Pissed Jeans, and the bracing Why
    Love Now documents them at their grimy, grinning best. While its
    references may be very early-21st-century, its willingness to state its
    case cement it as an album in line with punk's tradition of turning
    norms on their heads and shaking them loose.

    Drive Soundtrack (Out Of Stock)


    Opaque Gold Colored Vinyl


    Various Artists with Original Motion Picture Score by Cliff Martinez. A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong.

    The soundtrack features original music by Cliff Martinez (The Lincoln Lawyer, Traffic) with Eurosynth-styled songs by Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx (''Nightcall''), The Chromatics (''Tick of the Clock''), Desire (''Under Your Spell''), College featuring Electric Youth (''A Real Hero''), and Riziero Ortolani featuring Katyna Ranieri (''Oh My Love''). Rolling Stone Magazine named Drive the No. 1 movie of 2011.

    The Drive soundtrack raced to the top of the iTunes album charts, hitting No. 4 within a week of its digital release and peaking at No. 35 on the Billboard Top 200. The soundtrack re-entered the charts in February 2012 when the film was released on DVD.

    ''One thing that was unique for me about this project was having songs exert such a strong influence on the score,'' said Martinez. ''That helped to create a unified, one-size-fits-all, style of soundtrack... the 80s electronic pop style made a lot of sense to me. I knew that Nicolas [Refn, director] was in love with that sound and I saw a way to acknowledge it with vintage synth sounds and cover most of the dramatic food groups while referencing that style.''

    This blending of score and song is the perfect vehicle for Cliff Martinez. Martinez moved to California in 1976, just in time for the punk movement. He had stints as drummer for the Weirdos, Lydia Lunch and Foetus frontman Jim Thirlwell, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dickies. He was also the drummer in the final incarnation of legendary iconoclasts Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.

    Martinez has since received compositional credit on many of Steven Soderbergh's projects including Kafka, The Limey, Solaris, Gray's Anatomy, Schizopolis, Traffic (which earned four Oscars and earned Martinez a Grammy nomination), and the upcoming film Contagion. He also composed the music for Espion(s) and A L'Origine, two French films released in 2009 - the latter earned a Cesar Award nomination for best original score. His other credits include Pump Up The Volume, Wicker Park, Wonderland, and The Lincoln Lawyer.
