    The Pretty Things (Discontinued)

    With sneers on their mugs and hair down to here and a punkier sound than even the Rolling Stones could produce the Pretty Things were the British Invasion outfit that made parents of teenagers think maybe Mick Jagger and the boys weren't so bad after all! Led by the raucous vocals of Phil May and the stinging lead guitar of Dick Taylor, the Pretty Things' first American album was stuffed with powerful workouts like Rosalyn, Honey I Need and Don't Bring Me Down and ranks right up there with anything the Kinks, the Who and the Stones had to offer.

    Sweet Heart Sweet Light

    For an artist as consistent as Spiritualized's Jason Spaceman, whose 7th studio album Sweet Heart Sweet Light will see its release on Fat Possum, it's easy to assume that there's a certain effortlessness to the creative process. In fact, the three years since the release of 2008's acclaimed Songs in A&E were some of the roughest imaginable for Jason.


    After a near death from double pneumonia in 2005 it was a slow road to recovery, a process he touched upon on with great grace on the last album. His return to full health saw him release Songs in A&E and mount critically lauded performances of his 1997 game-changer Ladies And Gentlemen....We Are Floating In Space on both sides of the Atlantic.


    However, shortly after recording Sweet Heart Sweet Light in far flung locales such as Los Angeles, Reykavik and Wales, Jason found himself weakened by a degenerative liver disease and was subjected to six months of chemo treatment, a procedure that left him virtually housebound while he mixed the album.


    In a classic case of triumph over tribulation, the resulting album is Spiritualized at their most vibrant; full voiced and utterly sublime. In Jason Spaceman's orbit rock and roll is the salve and listeners will hear all of the epic grandiosity and brain worming melodies for which they're renowned, as well as the gorgeous gospel delium that makes hearing a new Spiritualized album an exhilarating and emotional experience.


    "Hey Jane," an energetic 8+ minutes of rousing organ, glittering guitar fuzz and swirling choirs, is first the single and indication that new album Sweet Heart Sweet Light is another epic body of work from the anthemic master. It's been three years in the making for renowned perfectionist Jason Spaceman and the resulting music captured in this first single, showcases them at their most vibrant and sublime.


    The album also features a first for Spiritualized: Jason is joined by his 11 year old daughter Poppy Spaceman on the starkly beautiful So Long You Pretty Thing for which she also has a writing credit for the opening couplet. Elsewhere on the album is I Am What I Am which was co-written by Jason and Mac Rebennack aka Dr. John.

    The First Blossoming Of One Of The Truly Singular Talents In American Music


    For the series of sessions that laid the foundation for Willie Nelson's career and thus changed the course of modern country music, these recordings have been treated pretty cavalierly over the years. But first, a little history Willie Nelson was a struggling songwriter, hungry for work and maybe even just plain hungry, when he moved to Nashville in late 1960 with his wife and kids and met Hank Cochran, who was a writer for Pamper Music. Pamper, which was owned by country star Ray Price, fiddle player Hal Smith, and a baker (!) from Pico Rivera, California named Claude Caviness, was the hottest publishing company in town, thanks to writers like Cochran and Harlan Howard and songs like "Heartaches by the Number" and "I Fall to Pieces." At first, Willie wasn't going to sign with Pamper because Hal Smith wouldn't give Willie the draw he needed, but Cochran told Smith to front Willie fifty bucks a week from his own draw. So Willie, determined to reward Cochran's trust, got to work. "I was writing to prove I could write," he said. "To get the money and feel like I was earning it." He would end most work days with a new song, and then he and Cochran would call a session with A-team musicians who didn't have major label studio work that day. The result: a body of work that just may well represent the most fertile creative period ever to issue from a country songwriter.


    The songs Willie recorded for Pamper during the early '60s remain among his most famous, and include tunes he still performs to this day: "Crazy," "Funny (How Time Slips Away),' "Night Life," "Pretty Paper," "Half a Man," "Hello Walls," "Healing Hands of Time," and more. And these, the Pamper demos, are the first recordings of those legendary songs. In other words, this is what artists and label guys back in the day heard when Hal Smith or Hank Cochran handed over a little acetate, and said, "Hey, listen here to what our guy Willie Nelson just come up with." It simply doesn't get much more historic than that! But, for some reason, these demos have hitherto turned up in bits and pieces, mostly on budget packages with little documentation or care.


    Now, finally, these incredibly important recordings are getting the respect they deserve. Things to Remember-The Pamper Demos brings together these 28 performances for the first time (several of which have hitherto eluded compilation), all remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision to sound much better than they ever have, and annotated by Grammy-winning writer Colin Escott, with photos courtesy of Bear Family label founder Richard Weize. Available from Real Gone Music as a gatefold , red vinyl double-LP limited to 1000 copies, this collection is indispensable for any Willie Nelson fan or any lover of great country music it's the first blossoming of one of our greatest songwriters, presented the way work of this stature should be, with great sound and packaging.

    Pretty. Odd

    For Panic At The Discos sophomore follow-up to their Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen break-through debut 2005s A Fever You Cant Sweat Out, the band holed up in a Las Vegas studio with renowned producer Rob Mathes. What they created is nothing short of a masterpiece, the 60s pop-inspired Pretty Odd. This time around, the band opted for real instruments and live tracking over Pro Tools software, citing influences as The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. Guitarist Ryan Ross explains, We want to make music that is simple and timeless and not too pretentious. The band also did additional tracking at the Abbey Road Studio in London, adding a Beatles-esque flavor to their usual Vegas flare. The song lyrics have moved away from the whole one-liner, sarcastic thing says Ross, in favor of more everyday things. Lead single Nine In The Afternoon has the band showing a healthy dose of maturity, having grown as songwriters and instrumentalists.

    Hawkwind's 1970 debut album produced with former Pretty Things guitarist Dick Taylor is a perfect introduction to what was going to be a long and peculiar journey.

    The Indestructible Sounds Of

    This raw rhythm''n''beat garage-rock''n''roll combo, headed up by the ubiquitous veteran rocker, Sir Bald Diddley (aka Hipbone Slim), delivers super rough, tough and wild mid-'60's inspired sounds that are just about as frantic as a pack of dogs in a lamp post factory. It's British beat at its best, loaded with grab-your-throat guitar riffs, snarling vocals, wailing harp and much maraca shaking -- proper raw-as-you-like freakbeat, inspired by the likes of the Pretty Things, Kinks, Downliners Sect, Them, Birds, Stones, Yardbirds, Jimmy Reed, Sonics ...

    Bowie At The Beeb: The Best Of The BBC Radio Sessions '68-'72 (Awaiting Repress)

    Previously released on CD, this is the debut of the Best Of David Bowie's BBC radio sessions from 1968 - 1972 on vinyl. The 39-track 4 LP set comes in a lift off lid box and features a full color 20 page booklet.


    This vinyl version features Oh! You Pretty Things from the Sounds Of The 70s Bob Harris session, broadcast in September 1971, which was previously exclusive to the Japanese release of the CD.
    This performance features just David and Mick Ronson as a duo.Completely exclusive to this collection, and therefore making its debut, is the once lost The Supermen from the Sounds Of The 70s Andy Ferris session, broadcast in March 1970, and performed by The Hype. This recording was only rediscovered during the research for the original CD set and remained unreleased until now.

    Inside/Absent

    Joel Peterson wrote this record without any input from fellow band members. I think it was because of that separation from other people's input that the writing style shifted. I found myself keeping things a little more elemental; steering away from programming, opting for sparser percussion, and keeping instrumentation as minimal as songs could take. The lyrics became a lot more direct and the vocal style kind of followed suit. It just didn't seem appropriate to layer these things that were said in pretty bare, straightforward terms with a ton of effects...I wanted to at least make myself feel something through music, and it seemed that the best way to do that was just to be as real and honest as possible.

    Spirit Electricity: Live

    Seeing the legendary Bad Brains live is an incredible experience, and over four separate live albums, the band has never really been able to capture that experience perfectly on record...but Spirit Electricity comes close. Anchored by the bands best reggae song, The Youth Are Getting Restless, which clocks in at nearly eight minutes, the disc captures both sides of Bad Brains -- the punk legends and the lifelong reggae fans...with both sides heavily steeped in Rasta philosophy. A combined reggae cover of The Beatles' Day Tripper and the Rolling Stones' She's a Rainbow is the other gem here. The cover, a live favorite, is yet another example of how distinctive the Bad Brains sound...even if they're playing someone else's music. Guitarist Dr. Know really shines on the reggae songs, using his jazz-fusion background and unique style of rhythm playing to beautify what would otherwise be fairly harsh songs. The punk side of things is pretty righteous as well. The version of their standard Banned in D.C. found here is arguably the best recording the band has ever made, and the one-two punch of Return to Heaven and Let Me Help that kicks off the disc is incredible. Next time the band has a reunion tour (seems to happen every few years), check 'em out. If you can't do that, this is the next best thing. reggae-reviews.com

    Southsiders

    Full Color Custom Printed Sleeves


    8-Page LP Lyric Booklet


    Minneapolis is known for many things - pretty lakes, the Mall of America, lutefisk. But 17 years ago, hip-hop act
    Atmosphere transformed the city into something else entirely: a nexus from which underground rap spiraled-out
    to the masses. And thanks to the duo's indefatigable touring habits, Top 20-charting albums, and their galvanizing artist-owned label Rhymesayers (MF Doom, Aesop Rock), they're still pushing the boundaries of what indie
    rap can mean.


    It's with that overachieving-underdog spirit that MC Sean "Slug" Daley and producer Anthony "Ant" Davis have
    named Atmosphere's eighth studio album Southsiders (out May 6), a shout-out to their native neighborhood.
    Because, says Slug, "We have spent the majority of our career - God, we can call it a career! - repping the
    south side of Minneapolis pretty hard."


    While Southsiders is a celebration of the group's fortitude, it is also a deeply introspective, and sometimes
    conflicted, work. "It's a natural progression from the last record, The Family Sign, which was about growing my
    family," says Slug, now a father to three, who finds himself contemplating mortality. "I'm starting to think, 'What is
    post-family man? What am I supposed to rap about now?' I'm sticking to my roots, rapping about what I'm
    doing, what I think about. This record is - much like the other ones - a very detailed look at my life."


    The album captures everything from a blazing, anthemic takedown in "Southsiders," to the ebb-and-flow of loss
    in the sauntering "Arthur's Song," to emotional abandon in the rousing "Kanye West." The latter - and its
    mantra, "put your hands in the air like you really do care" - is a high-five to the rapper whose emotional
    reactions are often misperceived as not caring. Says Slug, "I wanted to write a song about loving something so
    much that you submit to the moment.

    Blood Money

    Blood Money is based on the socio/political play Woyzeck, originally written by a young German poet Georg Buchner as a spare, cinematic piece in 1837 and inspired by the true story of a German soldier who was driven mad by bizarre army medical experiments and infidelity, which led him to murder his lover. Waits, along with wife and collaborator Kathleen Brennan, wrote songs for an avant-garde production of Woyzeck directed by Robert Wilson, which premiered in November 2000 at the Betty Nansen Theater in Copenhagen and went on to win Denmark's version of the Tony for Best Musical. The album careens from the brutal to the tender with assaulting rhythms and romantic melodies. It's a grim musical deposition on the human condition, a dark mortality play where Tin Pan Alley meets the Weimer Republic.Blood Money is flesh and bone, earthbound, said Waits. The songs are rooted in reality: jealousy, rage, the human meat wheel...They are more carnal. I like a beautiful song that tells you terrible things. We all like bad news out of a pretty mouth. I like songs to sound as though they've been aging in a barrel and distressed.

    Only In Dreams

    On several levels, Dum Dum Girls second full length Only in Dreams is a great leap forward for a gifted songwriter and an equally gifted band. It's heavy, deeply personal stuff and surely unprecedented for this style of music. The first record was basically the first songs I'd ever written, says band-leader Dee Dee, and I was thinking nostalgically about being a teenager. This record, it was pretty much impossible not to write about very recent, very real things.


    Very real things indeed: Dee Dee wrote Hold Your Hand immediately after her mother (the pretty lady on the cover of both the Dum Dum Girls' self-titled 2009 debut EP and their 2010 debut album I Will Be) was diagnosed with what turned out to be a fatal illness, and it's one of several songs on Only in Dreams that unsparingly trace her mom's passing. Other songs spell out the emotional toll of separation from one's lover, something Dee Dee had to deal with while she and her husband (Brandon Welchez of the acclaimed noise-pop band Crocodiles) pursued their own tour schedules.


    Only in Dreams more than fulfills the promise of 2011s acclaimed and fast-selling He Gets Me High EP. It retains Dum Dum Girls' signature blend of the girl-gang eyeliner punk of the Shangri-Las, the trashy propulsion of the Cramps, and the moody atmospherics of Mazzy Star, but for the first time, all four Dum Dum Girls play and sing on the album. Now the harmonies have more depth, Jules plays her own distinctive guitar leads, and the Bambi (bass)/Sandy (drums) rhythm section powers the music like a vintage V-8 engine. Best of all, tons of time on the road, including two massively successful headlining tours, have molded Dum Dum Girls into a very formidable rock & roll band, giving the music an undeniable force.


    And now that power and glory is showcased by full-on studio production, while I Will Be was recorded at home and modestly spiffed up in a studio by legendary pop maestro Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Go-Go's), Only in Dreams was recorded at Josh Homme's Pink Duck Studios, and Gottehrer again produced, this time with Sune Rose Wagner from the Raveonettes.


    Only in Dreams represents a musical evolution for Dum Dum Girls and a personal one for Dee Dee, and that's no coincidence. I'm for real, she says. We all are. I'm really passionate about this, it's all I know. And maybe we've just grown up a bit, or grown out a bit. There's some weight to what we do, and a pure intent, and I think that comes across on this album.

    I'm Not The Devil

    Cody Jinks was raised on country music but he cut his teeth on metal. "Metallica was king. They set the tone for me and I spent a good part of my youth wanting to be James Hetfield." After a dedicated stint as a frontman in a thrash metal band, Jinks willingly found himself back to where it all began. "My dad loved the outlaw country icons, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. That never ending consistency of incredible music growing up laid some very deep seeds. I'm mean, come on nothing better than mentally diving into 'The Hag' and metal when it comes time for me to write songs."


    Always avoiding trends and ferociously choosing his direction was the only option from day one, even though that very path could have prevented success. "What is success if you can't wake up everyday being who you really are. In the end, that will catch up with you." Jinks has been tested countless times by his career choices. The better part of the last 15 years have included numerous empty bar rooms and a never ending financial loss. "Yeah, I've been pretty good at losing money. Not the greatest feeling in the world to be gone from home for long stretches of time, only to walk in the door broke. Luckily I've got a damn good woman in my life. She has stood by me with unmeasurable strength to say the least and it is an absolute fact that I seriously overplayed my hand when landing her."


    His long, dark beard and endless array of tattoos are no fad. They unquestionably define Cody Jinks. His prototypical metal/hard rock band frontman look is not a well orchestrated image, but again, define Cody Jinks. Diving into to his album, I'm Not the Devil is the perpetual truth of who he is and where he has found himself at this point in his career. "I'm just glad that I ended up where I am now," Jinks said. "It makes complete sense that I'm at this place in my life. Country music found me when I was young and chased me down as I grew older"


    Jinks' latest project is his deepest, darkest and most provocative album to date, with a metal common denominator, the apocalypse, running throughout the record. "It's a pretty scary time," Jinks said. "There are some evil people running things in the world. It hits me since I have a six and three-year old."
    There's not a weightier song than the aptly titled "Heavy Load." It's the most apocalyptic song on the album but the dense cut, with a pretty violin break, is a gorgeous tune. The vocal hook grabs ears when Jinks croons "Train Jumps Tracks Some Time Ago/You Can't Root That Heavy Load." "That was the last song I wrote on the record," Jinks said. "I couldn't be happier how that one turned out."


    "All You Can" features a pretty piano line and sobering wordplay. When Jinks belts out 'What Are You Living For," you can't help but think about the serious question posed in what is becoming an increasingly shallow existence. "I was really tired when I wrote that song," Jinks said. "We had been on the road for awhile. The bottom line is that if you're not helping people, you're not doing your job as a human being. It's time to quit feeling sorry for yourself and do something."
    One of Jinks' favorite songs on the album is "The Way I Am," a cover of a Merle Haggard classic. "I love that song," Jinks says. "I wrapped it up just before Merle died. The song always resonated with me. I relate to that one since there are times I would rather be out fishing."


    "No Words" is a stunner of a gritty, autobiographical love song, which is a throwback to how songs used to be written. It is a tuneful gem, inspired by reality. Jinks starts out dark as night. "My Whole View of the World has Changed/ I Guess that Comes with Age/I Don't Believe there is Good in Every Man Like I Did Back Then/I May Drink More Than I Should/You've Seen Me on the Floor/I Spent my Lifetime in this Cage I Built Around Me." But the song is actually a tip of the hat to his beloved wife of 19 years. "There Aint' No Words/ To Say How Much I Need You/With You Here/ You Make This Life I Lead Worth Living." "It's about my wife," Jinks says. "But the funny thing is that she doesn't like it. She thinks it sounds too sad."


    With the title track "I'm Not the Devil," Jinks wakes us all up to the realities of mistakes and the heartfelt desire to be forgiven. "We are all guilty of mistakes and very guilty of pointing out the mistakes of others. Forgiveness feels so much better or so I think."


    It's impressive how Jinks is getting his message across. Jinks utilizes space well in his songs. Notes aren't crammed in. Jinks lets his songs breathe. "After all I've experienced, I think I've matured," Jinks says. "I think you can hear it in the music. I've grown up."


    Even though he still looks the part of the headbanger he was back in the day, he has moved on. "It's all for the best, Jinks says. "I'm where I was meant to be."


    It's all about the music and the fans, who are the fuel that drives Jinks. "They come out night after night giving up hard earned money and precious time to see me play," Jinks says. " It's truly is amazing when you really think about it. The best way I can say thanks is by giving back with effort and gratitude."

    The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

    Explosions in the Sky's second effort takes a more studied, even lush approach to the literate chaos of their 2001 debut. But put on your sad sack thinking cap now, because Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is a contemplative and heady rush of masterful melancholia. Its six songs are multi-minute, slow motion workouts of gentle electric guitar plucks and subtle/sudden washes of percussion รน they're still instrumental, but as lyrical as anything in the indie rock universe. 'Only Moment We Were Alone' turns on a simple, melancholy guitar figure, the drums shifting from insistent catch-up mode to a studied march built to introduce the next layered crescendo. Explosions in the Sky doesn't shift as suddenly or jarringly on Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place; the quartet has applied more structural predictability this time out, but is still quick about setting the sad butterflies in your stomach to fluttering. 'Memorial' is the album's meditative heart. It begins so quietly, reduced to brittle landscapes of tone. Lightly chiming guitars drift in, like the echoes of church bells off in narrow city streets. Then, like each of the album's movements, it surges forward in a rush, like the overtures of Sonic Youth separated, dried, and ultimately lengthened in the blistering Texas sun. The final blast of distortion and staccato drumming is Earth at full bittersweet bluster. 'Your Hand in Mine' ends things as they began, with a pair of determined guitars picking out a melody that's both pretty and pretty damn heartbreaking.

    Poorly Formed

    Get ready to redefine just who the Swingin' Utters are, since they're not a band who's ever made the same record twice. And while the tones and arrangements set this record apart from their recent work, there's still plenty of piss 'n' vinegar along with all the other hallmarks of a great Swingin' Utters record: catchy melodies, diverse instrumentation, and intelligent, heartfelt lyrics. Guitarist Darius Koski describes just what went into this new record:


    "Our new record was written pretty quickly, more so than anything we've done in the past. One of the reasons, I think, was that Jack had several songs in various stages of completeness, but once he decided to give Johnny the music, and have Johnny write the lyrics and vocal melody to his instrumentation, things started to fly So there are several of these Johnny/Jack songs on the record (which marks the first songs Jack's written with us). In that way, it was a brand new writing process for us, so it was pretty exciting, and we're really happy with the way all of these songs came out in the end.

    Slave To The Sword (Awaiting Repress)

    Includes Color Lyric Insert


    It's that mix of thrash, death metal and SHRED that make Exmortus so absolutely irresistible! We're so sure you'll feel the same way that we've decided to premiere to the world the title track from their forthcoming album Slave To The Sword. If you liked "Immortality Made Flesh" - also on the album and part of an exclusive 7 with a Judas Priest cover on the B-side - you'll most definitely like this one too. 2014 is the year that Exmortus are going to make their imprint upon the metal scene at large; they're just too damned good not to, and with Prosthetic Records backing them this time around they'll have the support they deserve.


    Here's a quote from drummer Mario Moreno:


    2013 has been a pretty exciting year for EXMORTUS. We recorded a killer album with engineer/ producer Zack Ohren, got amazing album art done by Phil Lawvere, signed a record deal with Prosthetic Records and now we're finally announcing a release date for our upcoming album "Slave to the Sword". Pretty damn exciting right!? The year isnt over and we're already stoked on 2014. Our relationship with Prosthetic is still fresh but things are already off to a great start. Be sure to pick up a copy of Slave to the Sword in February online, in stores or on our upcoming North American Tour with Dark Tranquility and Omnium Gatherum starting February 1st in Atlanta, GA at The Masquerade. See you all soon! \m/

    World Painted Blood

    2009 release from one of the veteran Metal band. Nine studio albums, thousands of live shows and nearly three decades into a career that's made them one of the biggest and most important Metal bands in the world, the members of Slayer know exactly what kind of music they make: brutal but beautiful, punishing yet precise. A fresh Slayer record is a thing of terror but also one of trust: You can depend on what you're getting even if you're unprepared for it. As guitarist Jeff Hanneman says, ''At this point, I think a Slayer album pretty much speaks for itself.''

    Wondrous Bughouse

    Wondrous Bughouse, Trevor Powers (Youth Lagoon)'s sophomore album, was spawned from what he describes as becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world. During the time he wrote, Powers became intrigued with the metaphysical universe and blending those ideas with pop music. Youth Lagoon is something so personal to me because writing music is how I sort my thoughts, as well as where I transfer my fears, explains Powers. My mental state is usually pretty sporadic...a lot of this record was influenced by a fear of mortality but embracing it at the same time. Realizing that human life is only great because it is temporary. Experimenting with ideas about dimensions. I'm not a gifted spear, so explaining things is difficult for me. But music always makes sense.

    Here and Nowhere Else

    On their third full-length, Cleveland-bred outt Cloud Nothings give joy
    a hard, sharp edge. I was feeling pretty good about everything so I just
    made stuff that made me happy, says founding member and
    mild-mannered chief songwriter Dylan Baldi of Here and Nowhere Else.
    I had nothing to be angry about really so the approach was more
    positive and less 'fuck everything.' I just sat down and played until I
    found something that I like, because I was nally in a position to do
    that.


    Utilizing every possible opportunity to write while on the road for 18
    consecutive months following the release of 2012's Attack on Memory,
    Baldi presented an album's worth of new material to his bandmates with
    just days before they'd enter the studio with esteemed producer John
    Congleton. I'm pretty sure every song was written in a different
    country, he says. It's the product of only having a couple of minutes
    here and there. But Cloud Nothings would enjoy a full week with
    Congleton at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey, followed by three
    days of mixing at his own studio in Dallas shortly thereafter. The result is
    Cloud Nothings, rened: impossibly melodic, white-knuckle noise-rock
    that shimmers with sumptuous detail, from Baldi's lone, corkscrewing
    guitar to his dramatically improved singing to bassist TJ Duke's
    piledriving bass lines and drummer Jayson Gerycz's volcanic lls.


    It's more subtle, says Baldi. It's not just an in-your-face rock record.
    There's more going on. You can listen to a song 20 times and still hear
    different little things in there that you didn't notice before. Every time I
    listen I notice something that I didn't even realize we did.


    It's yet another staggering show of a progress from a songwriter and
    band still coming into their own.

    Songs

    After the groundswell of adoration for his album debut Life After Defo and the live shows that followed, Deptford Goth returns this Autumn with Songs, his second record of intensely slow-burning gems. Where the former was more affiliated with those seamless blenders of dreamy synth-pop, R&B and soul, Songs adds elements of singer-songwriter tradition to his irresistibly yearning electronica. "It wasn't a conscious decision," says Daniel Woolhouse. "But I've become more accepting of my voice, so it's more prominent now, which led to structuring the songs in a more classic way. I also wanted people to hear the lyrics. It's a process of being more upfront and honest."


    Songs' mood is still downbeat but tracks such 'Two Hearts' as 'The Lovers' would suggest he's found more happiness in his life. "Life After Defo had bits of hope hidden inside but this one's definitely more joyous," Daniel agrees. "Instead of closing down I'm opening up and feeling more at peace with myself about certain things."


    Songs also bears the mark of its origins. Last year, Daniel left his south-east London flat where he recorded and Life After Defo for a place by the sea. "It's pretty peaceful here," he says. "And more space meant I could develop things a bit more."


    As if to underline his singular mission, Songs' artwork echoes that of Life After Defo, being by the same artist, Jordan Kasey. "I wanted a continuation. I wanted something figurative, but that resembled a landscape too. It represents to me a connection between the physical self and it's surroundings, which is one of the album's themes." Over 11 chapters, from dark to light and various points in between, Songs is a unique landscape of the mind, body and soul, and one of 2014's most beautiful.

    Preparations


    Limited To 1000 Copies


    'Preparations' is the first record to be released on Tri Angle by Fis. Based in Wellington, New Zealand, Fis has steadily been building a name for himself on the underground as a producer to keep an eye on. Having already put out a number of very limited edition and very well received releases through a handful of drum and bass oriented labels, 'Preparations' finds Fis at a point in his music making career where he's ready to be introduced to a wider audience and confirm why websites like Resident Advisor have had things like this to say about him in the past; 'A producer that has suddenly appeared, rather fully-formed, doing something completely individual, sounding like absolutely no one else.' It's pretty difficult to explain exactly what Fis sounds like. Drawing upon a rich history of New Zealand customs and periods of heavy meditation for inspiration, Fis's tracks have the ability to completely disorientate and absorb the listener, creating rhythms that constantly seem to be cannibalizing one another. 'Preparations' feels forward thinking in the extreme and yet entirely elemental and strangely ancient.
