    The Old Magic

    Of Nick Lowe, NPR once observed, Few musicians get better with age, Nick Lowe is an exception. While it's undeniable that his last album garnered Lowe the best reviews of his career and his best one-week sales in the Soundscan era, there is little doubt that he has always been at the forefront of modern music. Be it his production work with The Damned, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders or his stone-classic solo albums Jesus of Cool or Labour of Lust, Nick has always set the standard for smart, switchblade-sharp pop music.


    His latest album, The Old Magic continues Lowe's late-career evolution with arguably his best collection yet. Amidst urbanely insistent grooves (Sensitive Man), and spare-yet-imposing shuffles (Checkout Time), The Old Magic features three exceptional Lowe ballads: album opener Stoplight Roses, House for Sale and I Read A Lot. As is his custom, Lowe also peppers the album with three covers by Elvis Costello, Tom T. Hall and Jeff West that fit seamlessly with his originals. The Old Magic might be the album title equivalent of calling your shot, but for Nick Lowe it seems more a simple statement of fact.

    Peace... Back By Popular Demand (Pure Pleasure)

    Peace ... Back By Popular Demand finds Keb' Mo' covering nine classic protest and peace songs from the 1960s and early '70s, and what is immediately apparent is how well these songs translate forward into the current political milieu. This is an album where the songs themselves are the stars, and Keb' Mo' wisely takes a low-key and measured vocal approach to each of them, letting the messages take hold over light soul-jazz backings, with just enough funk in the horn charts to give the arrangements some push. It's hard to argue with the song selection, but as an interpreter, Mo' seldom makes any of these tracks his own, and behind each stands the ghostly but clear memory of the original version. Obviously Mo' isn't trying to top the Hit Parade with anything here, and his effort to bring these important songs into a new light is laudable. Peace ... Back By Popular Demand is not a major album, but it does have some major things to say, or re-say, in this case, and it serves as a reminder that every era could use (and deserves) some peace.





    Musicians:



    • Keb' Mo' (guitar, bass, mandolin, vocal, dobro)

    • Mindi Abair (alto saxophone, soprano saxophone)

    • Nick Lane (trombone)

    • Jeff Paris (keyboards, mandolin, piano, organ)

    • James Harrah (guitar)

    • Mark Cargill (violin, director)

    • Reggie McBride (bass)

    • Paulinho Da Costa (percussion)

    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.

    Uniquely Yours

    A decade before he was topping the country charts, Joe Stampley fronted one of the deep souths most legendary and rockin 60s combos, the Uniques. Once signed to Shreveport, Louisiana-based Paula Records, the Uniques made waves nationally on their very first release, Not Too Long Ago. That pop classic (faithfully/recently covered by Nick Lowe) is just one of many highlights of their 66 debut LP, Uniquely Yours. According to the master tape, this record was originally going to be tagged The Uniques in Action; a shelved album title that could not have been more apt.


    Finally reissued (and in fabulous mono, to boot), this is southern rock n soul at its finest; a real mÉlange of styles that swings wildly from deep-fried garage rock, frenzied frat-beat, infectious Stampley-penned pop, and gorgeously soulful ballads. From Presley and Gene Vincent to any Justice label 60s garage band worth mentioning, southerners have always littered their LPs with this latter fare. But when it comes to delivering a soulful ballad, Joe Stampley is up there with the very best of em. Uniquely Yours includes the groups all-time biggest regional hit, a cover of Art Nevilles All These Things (in its original mix, unadorned by string overdubs) and a Georgia (On My Mind) that simply blows away all other white boy soul renditions. But make no mistake, this is a largely uptempo set marked by the ferocious punk pace of You Aint Tuff, updated rockabilly funkiness of Fast Way of Living, blistering guitar workouts like Strange, plus some of the best damned covers ever waxed. For a positively unique album experience, Sundazed includes the classy period sleeve design from the original Paula release.

    The Whole Love

    Wilco The Whole Love on 180g 2LP + CD


    Double Audiophile 180g Gatefold Vinyl Pressed by Pallas in Germany w/ CD Housed in a Cardboard Sleeve


    The Band's Debut Release on their Newly Launched dBpm Records


    For Wilco, the release of The Whole Love represents more than just the eighth studio album from this innovative Chicago rock band. It signifies yet another new chapter in the bands constantly evolving, enduring and storied career. Just as their departure from Warner Bros. for the release of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot created a thrilling story, now The Whole Love, on their newly launched dBpm Records, sets one of contemporary music's most creative and independent-minded bands on a wide open road.


    Recorded in their northside Chicago loft, the 12 new songs on The Whole Love capture the balance between the bands art sensibilities, their fondness for traditional American music and their love of classic guitar-driven pop rock. The Whole Love is a veritable sonic stew, showcasing Wilcos far-reaching musical prowess (multiple guitars, keyboards, synthesizers and percussion plus Mellotron, strings, loops and more) perfectly accompany Jeff Tweedys provocative and insightful lyrics. The album was produced by the band and engineered by Tom Schick (Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainwright).


    Coinciding with the albums release will be the first leg of Wilcos North American tour, including 2 nights in Toronto's Massey Hall, New York City's Central Park, Nashville's Ryman Auditorium and Atlanta plus shows in Boston, DC, Raleigh, St. Louis and a bunch of other cool stuff east of the Mississippi. Nick Lowe, whose song I Love My Label was ceremoniously covered by the band for the b-side of their I Might 7 single, supports on all dates.

    Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For The Whole Family

    When Nick Lowe was approached by his record label about making a Christmas album, his reaction wasn't exactly one of comfort and joy. "It was more disquiet and alarm, accompanied by feelings of 'do they really think I would wish to sully my good name on this tawdry and vulgar commercialism?'" Lowe says with a laugh. "but that feeling lasted about thirty-six and a half seconds, before I came to and thought, 'Vulgar, tawdry commercialism? Yes, please, when do we start?' seriously, I thought, 'Wait a minute, this could be really good fun.'"

    Featuring Nick Lowe on bass (who recorded with John Hiatt's Bring The Family and Little Village) Brutal Youth is unmistakably the best album Costello made in the '90s.

    American Recordings

    In 1994 Cash stunned the music world with this commanding collection of 13 solo acoustic performances that roll from gospel to cowboy to sarcastic folk.
    Minimalism had long been Cash's meal ticket, but this time around, producer Rick Rubin stripped it all away, recording the bulk of the record in Cash's
    cabin or his own living room (two cuts were captured live at the Viper Room in front of an emphatic audience). Cash offers five typically direct and vivid
    originals, but he also seizes control of songs by Kris Kristofferson, Nick Lowe, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Loudon Wainwright. Forty years after Hey
    Porter, Cash delivers a pure, naked, and incredibly moving record that, dare we say, rivals the impact of his greatest achievements. --Marc Greilsamer


    Johnny Cash had already recorded some of the most important Country albums in the history of the genre, yet, although he was still making quality music
    throughout the '80s, record sales and label support were the lowest he'd ever experienced in his entire career. By the early '90s, he was without a label for
    the first time in four decades. Longtime fan, label owner and producer Rick Rubin stepped in, asked Johnny to return to his roots and together, they recreated
    the legend of the Man In Black. Features Cash performing his own compositions as well as songs from Loudon Wainwright, Leonard Cohen, Nick
    Lowe, Tom Waits and Glenn Danzig. American Recordings earned Johnny a 1995 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. A stunning return
    to form.

    Ernie Graham

    This is the self titled debut album by former Eire Apparent member Ernie Graham (Ernie would also found pub rock group Clancy after this album) originally released in 1971. Backed by Nick Lowe and his group Brinsley Schwarz, this is an underground roots rock classic that sounds like it could have been a lost album by The Band. Opening with the beautiful, Dylanesque folk number Sebastian, the album kicks into gear on tracks like "So Lonely" and "Don't Want Me Around" and ends with the song "Belfast" which takes us home to Ernie's roots in Ireland. All Music's Bruce Elder has called this record..."one of the great albums (and perhaps the greatest unknown album) of the 1970s.

    Blood And Chocolate

    180 Gram Vinyl


    Now on 180 gram vinyl and re-mastered from the original master tapes this 1986 release finds Costello at his rawest with furious rockers like "I Hope You're Happy Now" and "Tokyo Storm Warning." Even the ballad "I Want You" is menacing.


    Known in his youth as the angry young man, Elvis Costello waited until 1986 to create the most vicious record of his career. Stripped to the studs and produced by Nick Lowe, Blood and Chocolate seethes with vindictiveness, spite, and rancor. The 11-track effort clatters with raw rock n' roll menace and clangs with darkly humorous intent. Venomous, acerbic, and aggressive, it values rhythm and attack over harmony and melody. A volatile rite of passage on which harsh Telecaster riffs cut like razor blades and Costello spits words as if they were Molotov cocktails tossed at enemies, this is the satisfying sound of emotional catharsis.

    The Stiff Singles 1976 - 1977 (Pre-Order)

    It was the summer of 1976 when Dave Vanian, Rat Scabies and Captain Sensible recruited guitarist and songwriter Brian James, they played their first gig supporting the Sex Pistols at the 100 Club and quickly signed to Stiff Records and began writing the very first chapter of the punk rock history books. Their debut 7" - New Rose - was written by Brian James and backed by a proto-thrash version of The Beatles' Help. It was recorded by Stiff's in-house producer, Nick Lowe and set the punk dream alight at exactly 9.00am when record shops opened for business on 22 October 1976, stealing a march on the Pistols by becoming what is widely acknowledged as the very first punk record ever released.


    The band really came into their own with their second single - Neat Neat Neat - which had two cuts on the B-side, Stab Yor Back and Singalongascabies. Produced, like New Rose, by Nick Lowe, the vinyl had a message from one band member scratched in the run-out groove: "this is your captain speaking..." So what were Captain Sensible's favourite acts on Stiff, one journalist asked him in 2007? "I wasn't interested!" he insists. "It was mainly pub rock in the early days, which we despised and sneered at in our young and snotty way " After a special 7" - Stretcher Case Baby - cut to give away at gigs celebrating the band's first anniversary, they went back into the studio, this time with Pink Floyd's Nick Mason at the controls.


    Third single Problem Child was written by Brian James with Rat Scabies and featured new recruit Lu Edmonds on guitar. An incendiary two minutes of the band in their prime, it failed to crack the UK top 40 but did make number 27 in NME's alternative singles chart. By the end of 1977, the Damned were ready to part with Stiff, just as Brian James and Lu Edmonds were ready to part with The Damned. Their last single was Don't Cry Wolf, backed with another Nick Mason-produced track, One Way Love.


    BMG now proudly present this limited edition set comprising of 5 x 7 vinyl singles including the famed first ever punk single 'New Rose' and all the other early hits from the impressively chaotic punk quartet. All singles have been recreated with their original artwork, including the ultra-rare, previously fan club only 'Stretcher Case Baby'. These are all packed in a superb box, collaged with original press cuttings from back in the day. Also included is a Damned embroidered patch, exclusive to this boxset.

    Her 3rd and last album for John Peel's Dandelion Records (originally released in 1972).

    One True Vine

    Coming off the huge success of her first collaboration with Wilco frontman
    Jeff Tweedy - the Grammy winning You Are Not Alone - Mavis Staples
    wanted to make their second album together both a continuation of the
    joyous spirit of the first, and an evolution. With new song offerings from
    Alan Sparhawk of Low, Nick Lowe, and three new Tweedy originals, One True
    Vine is at once a darker and more uplifting album, anchored by reinventions
    of two 70s classics - Funkadelic's "Can You Get to That?" and the Staples
    Singer's "I Like the Things About Me." Tweedy and Staples have constructed
    a dense narrative arc, that starts with the literal soulsearching of Sparhawk's
    "One Holy Ghost" and Tweedy's "Jesus Wept," and then breaks wide open
    with Nick Lowe'ssoaring "Far Celestial Shores," a song he wrote for Mavis
    after touring together with Wilco. After that,the album builds to full tent
    revival mode, as the dark night of the soul passes and joy arrives in the form
    of Mavis' glorious voice. Closing out with Tweedy's rapturoustitle track,
    One True Vine truly builds on the promise of You Are Not Alone, and will
    delight the myriad fans discovering Mavis for the first time though her
    Grammy wins and performances, her White House performance in the
    tribute to Memphis Soul, and the glorious second act of this American icon.

    Press On

    June Carter Cash has lived a charmed life: as a child member of her name-sake kin, The Carter Family, late-night duets with Elvis Presley, a movie appearance with Robert Duvall, romance with James Dean, and a Grammy Award-winning performing and songwriting career with her husband Johnny Cash.



    But, to hear her sing such moving hymns as Diamonds in the Rough is to enjoy the holy, country hospitality of a simple countrywoman of a pure and spiritual heart. On Press On are other such gems as a touching, acoustic version of Ring of Fire, which June co-wrote. Throughout this album, June plays the Autoharp, a type of strummed dulcimer that lends a light, bouncy feel to these pieces that often contain no traditional rhythm section. She displays a worldly sensibility on such folk-rock numbers as the bitter Losin You and humor mixed with wisdom in Tiffany Anastasia Lowe,a song for her granddaughter, the child of daughter Carlene Carter and husband Nick Lowe. June concludes this warm and personal release as she began it, with a moving spiritual rendition of her familys standard, Will the Circle Be Unbroken.



    Press On was originally released in 1999 on the tiny Risk Records label. The album immediately garnered tremendous press accolades, culminating with a Grammy award that year. Risk Records went under shortly after release and Press On has been out of print ever since. Dualtone is proud to make this album available on vinyl for the very first time. Press On features guest performances from Johnny Cash, Marty Stuart, Rodney Crowell and Norman Blake.

    Blood And Chocolate


    Elvis Costello Blood and Chocolate on Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Emotionally Cathartic Nick Lowe-Produced Set Includes I Want You, I Hope You're Happy Now, and Uncomplicated


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes and Pressed at RTI: Guitar-Driven, Stripped-Down 1986 Album Teems With Stacked Rhythms, Tonalities, Punch, and Tension


    Costello at His Most Vicious: Songs Rumble and Storm, Dark Humor and Biting Lyrics Address Tumult, Jealousy, Vindictiveness


    Part of Mobile Fidelity's Elvis Costello Reissue Series: Singer-Songwriter's First Eleven Studio Albums Available on Sumptuously Sounding 180g LP


    Known in his youth as the angry young man, Elvis Costello waited until 1986 to create the most vicious record of his career. Stripped to the studs and produced by Nick Lowe, Blood and Chocolate seethes with vindictiveness, spite, and rancor. The 11-track effort clatters with raw rock n' roll menace and clangs with darkly humorous intent. Venomous, acerbic, and aggressive, it values rhythm and attack over harmony and melody. A volatile rite of passage on which harsh Telecaster riffs cut like razor blades and Costello spits words as if they were Molotov cocktails tossed at enemies, this is the satisfying sound of emotional catharsis.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, this collectable edition of Blood and Chocolate joins Mobile Fidelity's acclaimed Costello reissues series in presenting the icon's vital records in rich, dynamic, three-dimensional analog sound. That's never been truer than it is here. Costello and Co. recorded the songs in a large room at London's Olympic Studios while playing at stage volumes, an unconventional approach that nonetheless suited the music's raw feel. Nearly every track was done in three takes or less, with minimal vocal fixes and overdubs added immediately afterward. Such energy, spark, force, and pace thrive on this reissue.


    Capturing the decibel-laden atmosphere that heightens the rhythmic pace and elevates the urgency of the deliveries, Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP delivers the band's performances with wall-of-sound hugeness and booming authority. And while this isn't a record where subtlety reigns, listeners can now discern the acoustic guitar strummed by Lowe for the foundation of the savage Uncomplicated as well as the nuanced final bars of the inimitable I Want You on which each member's instrumental track is switched off to bleed into Costello's vocal microphone. Indeed, for all the apparent chaos, Steve Nieve's keyboards even get accurate placement and imaging on this incredible pressing. Then there's the temperament of the songs themselves-perhaps best described by Costello.


    The album title and Eamon Singer's crude cover painting reflected some intense and uncertain situations. The record might have well been a blurred polaroid: a smashed-up room, a squashed box of chocolates, some broken glass and a little blood smeared on the wall, wrote the singer in 2002. The album [is] a pissed-off 32-year-old divorce's version of the musical blueprint with which I had begun my recording career with the Attractions. Indeed, the band-on the verge of fraying at the seams and at each other's throats in close confines-pummels twanging chords, beats up on notes, turns up amplifiers, and eyes everything with great suspicion.


    Lyrically, Costello has seldom been wittier, sharper, or more malicious. The snarling, tables-turning I Hope You're Happy Now joins Bob Dylan's Positively Fourth Street as among the most lacerating kiss-off tunes ever penned. Similarly sarcastic, Next Time Round lends a pop rave-up air to the album's otherwise dark assault. The bloodletting Crimes of Paris and Poor Napoleon (featuring Pogues singer Cait O'Riordan playing the role of the voice of pity) confront the consequences of traumatic relationships and lustful choices with a savvy intellect. Given the mood and mindset of everyone and everything involved, it's no surprise that Costello and the Attractions wouldn't again work together until eight years later. Saying that Blood and Chocolate was worth the sacrifice is an understatement.

    Right On Time

    There's a narrative at work in The Brought Low's best songs, chronicling existence in the inner-cities outer boroughs and the pratfalls of hard work, hard liquor and hard time. The essence of these stories mirror the band's own: the past couple years has been a repetition of arrivals and departures: family dying and being born, band members entering in and then walking out. There was a local new wave revival whose aesthetic they couldn't have less to do with, a cycle of touring, working, and touring again, a decrepit practice space that's become a decrepit second home. On the other side of the tunnel they've come out stronger, more resolute in their conviction, and wired for maximum impact.


    Singer/ guitarist/ songwriter Benjamin Howard Smith and drummer Nick Heller have been the nucleus of The Brought Low since the rolling thunder of their NYC debut in 1999. The band's universally-lauded self-titled debut album on Tee Pee Records earned them a loyal audience, and the howling overdrive of their impassioned live shows have become the stuff of city folklore. 2003 saw the addition of bassist Robert Russell as well as second guitarist Kevin Eleven, who left the band shortly after recording concluded, returning them to their original power trio format. Following the release of Right On Time, The Brought Low band has planned a series of guerrilla tours throughout the country that will carry them well into 2007.

    Soft Friday

    Coves, the highly buzzed about 60's infused, indie psych-rock duo comprised of singer Rebekah Wood and multi-instrumentalist John Rigard bring their critically acclaimed debut album, Soft Friday, stateside. Mixed by Brendan Lynch (Primal Scream, Paul Weller), Clash Magazine says of the album, "With those driving, Spector-esque drums and that sweeping grandeur, theirs is a teenage melodrama fuelled by a passion for noise swirling psychedelia with a visceral edge."


    Coves released Soft Friday in the UK to critical acclaim, and quickly won the support of BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Nick Grimshaw and more, as well as attention from influential press outlets like Q Magazine, Clash, Dazed & Confused, Noisey, The Guardian, and NME who rated the album 9/10 and featured the album as one of its best albums of 2014.

    Remastered by Nick Davis


    Perhaps his most low-key and reflective work, as demonstrated with This Love This Heart and You Touch My Heart, Testify moves confidently into other territory with the escalating beats and rhythms of Driving Me Crazy and the gospel-tinged title track. The album's lead single, an interpretation of Leo Sayer's I Can't Stop Loving You demonstrated Collins' continuing ability to create hits, as it topped Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.

    Duskland

    "He dwells in the same darkness as Cass McCombs, punctuating the cobwebbed stillness with lowing organ and severe, almost pagan imagery. The Crimson moon, the city of refuge: Thesewould be hapless signi ers in
    another singer's mouth. Cale's drawl molds them back into tremendous fra gments, oating in a skyline somewhere just beyond the dusk. All of Duskland possesses that same fantastic self-assurance." -Stereogum


    Zachary Cale has been releasing records under his own name for just shy of a decade. Duskland,
    the title of his latest record, is a work of craftsmanship full of elegant lyricism and mysterious
    imagery; a collection of songs that look directly into the face of darkness yet drive beyond it,
    forging new paths.


    Allegorical in nature, Cale's songs move away from the inward reveries of his last album, Blue Rider,
    and divide outward into the voices of others. The album projects images of wide-open spaces and
    landscapes constructed from half remembered dreams. There isn't always a clear resolution, characters
    remain in a state of twilight, wandering from place to place in search of an undefined illumination. The
    lyric: So many lifetimes I lived in one / I've got to bury them now / No surprises this time around /
    Not beneath this crown, taken from I Left The Old Cell, aptly captures the human complexities found
    throughout the songs.


    Taking cues from artists like Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind era Dylan and Nick Cave's work with the
    Bad Seeds, Duskland evokes a restless spirit, one that is informed by American myths and tall tales.
    There's a Western flair to many of the album's songs with nods to soundtrack composers such as
    Morricone and the dream-laden noir of Badalamenti. Many of the album's highlights maintain a
    ceremonial grace. Sundowner opens the album with a lush organ progression played over a
    plaintive march. As the tension builds, Cale muses Branded as a fugitive / Dressed in the clothes
    of an innocent / Sirens ricochet / From bloodless lips I hear them call my name. From there the
    album moves forward like one long processional; Cale leads his band through up-tempo folk rock
    and charming country waltzes to minor key dirges and atmospheric instrumentals until ending with a
    horn section dragging over a funeral beat in the long form ballad Low Light Serenade.

    Passerby

    In a world where instant gratification is the norm, patience has become
    a rare commodity. But for Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett, who make up
    indie-folk duo Luluc (pronounced Loo-LUKE), letting things unfold in
    due time not only defines their career trajectory, it also works as a pretty
    good description of their approach to making music. Music that Sub
    Pop co-founder Jonathan Poneman describes as bracing, subtle, tender
    and magnificent.


    So while it may seem like Randell and Hassett's history is littered with
    all kinds of good luck-from their initial meeting to their relationship
    with The National's Aaron Dessner to opening slots with artists like
    Lucinda Williams, Fleet Foxes, and JosÉ Gonzàlez; to their deal with Sub
    Pop; to grabbing the attention of Nick Drake's producer-being in the
    right place at the right time isn't just about fate. It's about knowing when
    something feels right and having the confidence that people will respond
    when they're ready.


    There's no question that everything these Australians (who split their
    time between Melbourne and their adopted hometown of Brooklyn) have
    done in their lives has been leading up to this summer's Passerby, their
    second album overall and first available worldwide. Passerby is a gorgeously
    crafted 10-track album full of beautiful, slow-burning melodies and
    delicate harmonies, which drip out of their mouths like honey. The
    attention to detail is unmistakable, and highlights like "Reverie On
    Norfolk Street" and "Early Night" are as haunting as they are hummable.
    Unadorned guitars and voices make up the bulk of the dreamy sound,
    though the power of the added instrumentation can't be overstated, with
    well-placed piano, percussion, double bass, sax, trumpet, trombone,
    and more adding color to the cosmopolitan atmosphere. Band favorites
    like Simon and Garfunkel and Gillian Welch (and, of course, Nick Drake)
    can be felt throughout Passerby, while the poignant restraint aligns them
    well with labelmates Low.


    Co-produced by the band and Dessner, Passerby shows off all of Luluc's
    best qualities, retaining the gentle beauty of the duo's debut while adding
    textures built with a cadre of impressive players. It's the trophy celebrating
    Luluc's airtight case that good things-no, make that great things-really
    do come to those who wait. The wait is over. The world is ready to hear
    Luluc quiet and clear.

    Nervous


    "Carefully crafted, perfectly balanced, addictively
    melodic" - ROCK-A-ROLLA


    "In cold surroundings, moments of warmth arrive
    with life-affirming brightness, and that's what
    makes Siskiyou's music so memorable" - BLURT


    Siskiyou returns with Nervous, a majestic album of carefully constructed art rock
    built around songwriter and lead singer Colin Huebert's stacked acoustic guitars
    and intimate, whispery vocals. Siskiyou's sound has been previously dubbed a sort
    of 'Northern Gothic', conjuring cold winds and the life-saving warmth of temporary
    shelters and tiny hearth fires. With Nervous, the band continues to push beyond
    the crisp lo-fi intimacy of its early work, and has forged its most confident and
    finely-crafted recording to date, moving fully into auteur and chamber-pop
    territory with a song cycle that brings to mind the meticulousness of mood and
    sonics found in recent work by PJ Harvey, Nick Cave and Tindersticks. Inflected
    by an anxious, sussurant restraint, Huebert's voice is supported by the falsetto
    backing vocal counterpoint and economical instrumentation of bandmates Erik
    Arnesen, Peter Carruthers and Shaunn Watt. Fans of the understated and
    underrated 1990s group Swell may also hear a welcome evocation of that group's
    acoustic guitar-driven simplicity and austere deployment of adornments.


    Following Siskiyou's excellent sophomore release Keep Away The Dead in 2011,
    Huebert became afflicted with a serious inner ear condition that eluded
    conventional diagnosis. While honouring a previously-scheduled songwriting
    residency in Dawson City, Yukon in winter 2012, Huebert found himself grappling
    with severe anxiety and an unwelcome interiority, engendered by hyperacusis and
    a house that felt utterly haunted. Intense chronic ear-ringing and panic attacks
    continued throughout the year, for which conventional medicine was unable to find
    any cause or effective treatment; Huebert began focusing on meditation, retreated to
    silence for a period, and then began rehearsing his new songs with the band at
    extremely low volumes. The songs on Nervous are shot through with the entirety of
    this experience: the literal feeling of being trapped in one's head and the physica-lpsychological
    feedback loop of debilitating anxiety; the lyrical themes and tense,
    whispered singing amidst tightly-wrought compositions and arrangements.


    Huebert found solace in new working methods within the controlled environment
    of studio-based production and composition, developing new sonic palettes and
    pursuing new avenues of instrumental arrangement and recording fidelity.
    Working with producer/engineer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett/Final Fantasy, Dusted,
    Austra) on most of Nervous, Siskiyou has emerged with by far its most assured,
    ambitious and authoritative recordings, while preserving the economy of elements,
    deft structures, and assiduous melodic deliberation for which the band has been
    rightly celebrated over its two previous albums. In charting escape paths from his
    disquieting cranial confinement, Huebert has very much succeeded in setting his
    songs out on an expansive canvas, while preserving a palpable sense of nervous
    interiority and quiet desperation at their heart.
