Nothing Is RealCrystal antlers aren't really about making some shit we've heard before, but they do take notice of some important touchstones: powerful organ runs, ragged vocals and an ability to turn even relatively short songs into something that sounds beyond epic."
- The Fader
Merging psych, garage, lo-fi, prog, and countless other influences, the group easily maintains consistency despite a complete inability to be pinned to any specific movement or trend."
Art-garage whiplash at its finest."

It's hard not to admire these out-there dudes"
They're at the point where comparisons do little justice. They're just crystal antlers now."

Currently slated for a fall 2013 release is the newest Crystal Antlers full-length Nothing Is Real, featuring cover art by famed surf/skate/graffiti legend C.R. Stecyk III and recorded as the band returns to its most fundamental roots as an agile power trio - Jonny Bell, drummer Kevin Stuart and guitarist Andrew King.
Nothing Is Real is Crystal Antlers going beyond the beyond, with songs that rattle and ricochet from desolation to delirium. Opener "Pray" sounds like what would have happened if Black Flag's Greg Ginn had produced the first Psychedelic Furs single; "Persephone" and "Anywhere But Here" match the desperate, relentless rhythm of the Wipers with the inside-out guitar melodies of the Pixies. "Licorice Pizza" recalls lost cult-punk heroes like the Flesh Eaters or the Embarrassment. On Nothing Is Real, you'll feel as much as hear echoes of bands like Wire, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr.
As Bell puts it, "With each album, we've tried to figure out ways to include more of our whole selves in the recordings, while still keeping things cohesive. And from growing up in punk bands, there always needs to be that little element of something that might piss someone off. We might be using a drum machine-but we're gonna use it completely the wrong way."1. Rattlesnake

HospitalityThe angular, intricate, and intelligent compositions of Hospitality signal a sophisticated new pop voice. Singer Amber Papinis idiosyncratic songwriting coupled with the bands rich arrangements on their self-titled debut explore youth, New York, and the bittersweet commingling of past and present in a way that feels just right, right now.
Papinis singing has a wisp of an English accent via Kansas City (she learned to sing by imitating Richard Butler on The Psychedelic Furs Talk Talk Talk) and her lyrics create a moonstruck, even cinematic vision of New York City, where the band formed in 2007.
The production by Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells) and band member Nathan Michel (guitar, drums, keyboards), who released his share of experimental bedroom pop, culminating in 2005s The Beast (Skipp/Sonig), imbues the entire record with an intimate yet prodigious sound, layering period keyboards with horns, synthesizers, and treated guitars.

Wowowwowow! That was my reaction the first time I heard
De Lux. It's got a tropical post punk flavor reminiscent of
the Talking Heads."
They have some resemblance to Talking Heads and The Rapture
and my prediction is that they are the next revelation in the Los
L.A.'s De Lux are a post-disco dance-punk DIY duo that sound like they could
have come out of 1979 or 1982 just as easily as 2013. Founders and multi-instrumentalists Sean Guerin and Isaac Franco didn't meet so much as simply appear to
each other, sometime before high school ended and after learning to correctly fall
off skateboards began. Even at age 18, however, it was the kind of connection that
had been years in the making.
Sean had been writing songs since he was 15 and had spent recent years recording
and re-recording his own songs. And Isaac had been on a strict diet of classic and
obscure disco and boogie music since he too was 15, figuring out the original source
of hip-hop's greatest samples thanks to an older brother with a DJ sideline and an
enviable collection. They both were after the same thing in music-the groove, they
say, where the bass and the beat align in a perfect way that makes you want a song to
go on forever. They were even in a band together, but it wasn't De Lux. But you can
hear the exact moment De Lux became a band when you listen to "Better At Making
Time," the song they built from Isaac's out-of-nowhere bassline just before practice
for that other band was supposed to start: "Sean was like, 'You should record that!'"
says Isaac, "and I was like, 'What, really?'"
From lead track "Better At Making Time," De Lux roars through Psychedelic Furs
or Duran Duran-style pop ("Love Is A Phase"), delivers shouts and whispers like
James Murphy at his most frantic ("Make Space"), sinks into Eno-esque moments
of bliss ("On The Day") and rockets through the agit-funk David Byrne-style rave-up finale "Sometimes Your Friends Are Not Your Friends." And this is all from the
first-take-they never re-record, says Sean. If they don't perfectly catch that beat as
it happens, they let it go. That's probably why Voyage sounds as wild and alive as it
does. Just like on that surprise recording "Better Making Time," you're not hearing
a band come together. And just like how they met, you're hearing a band appear.1. Better at Making Time

Paradise FreaksRecording with a core group featuring Al Doyle (Hot Chip/LCD Soundsystem) on bass and guitar Rob Smoughton (Hot Chip/Grovesnor) on drums and guitar and Kenny Dickenson (KT Tunstall/Red Ken) on keys, Seahawks invited some of their favourite singers to contribute vocals. Maria Minerva, Tim Burgess, Indra Dunis of Peaking Lights and missing-in-action psychedelic songsmith Nick Nicely all added their unmistakeable tones. A set of final overdubs from Tom Furse (The Horrors) and some tinkering from Seahawks' regular Cornish musical mates sealed the deal. The whole process took time but what is time when faced with the epic expanse of the cosmos - a cosmos full of soft tones and brilliant corners, unexpected collisions, warm openings, deep colours and fresh textures.1.

Call Me By Your Name Soundtrack (Out Of Stock)
First Pressing Of 1,000 Numbered Copies On 180 Gram Blue Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter
Call Me By Your Name, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by AndrÉ Aciman.
Summer of 1983, Northern Italy. An American-Italian is enamored by an American student who comes to study and live with his family. Together they share an unforgettable summer full of music, food, and romance that will forever change them.
The film received critical acclaim upon its release, being already positively compared to Brokeback Mountain and Moonlight. Critics praised in particular Chalamet, Hammer and Stuhlbarg's performances, Guadagnino's direction and the screenplay. It will be released in the United States on November 24, 2017. It was released in the U.K on October 27, 2017.
Luca Guadagnino wanted the film's music to be connected to Elio, a young pianist who likes to transcribe and adapt pieces in order to get close to Oliver. The music is used to reflect the time, the characters' family, level of education and the kind of canon they would be a part of.
Guadagnino found himself resonating with Sufjan Stevens' lyricism through his work and initially asked Stevens to record an original song. Eventually, Stevens contributed three songs to the soundtrack: Visions of Gideon, which was used at the end of the film, Mystery of Love, which was featured in the film's first trailer and a new rendition of Futile Devices with piano. Stevens penned the songs by using the script, the book, and the conversations with the director about the characters. It marks Sufjan Stevens' first soundtrack for a feature film.
The soundtrack also features songs by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Giorgio Moroder, The Psychedelic Furs and many others.

The Man Upstairs (Out Of Stock)The Man Upstairs sees psychedelic troubadour Robyn Hitchcock uniting with legendary producer Joe Boyd (Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, R.E.M.) for one of the most unique outings of his already quite distinctive career. The album - which arrives just one short year after 2013's acclaimed Love From London - sees the British singer/songwriter musing on mortality, masculinity, and the impossibility of forever via an unexpected intermingling of self-penned originals and "songs I wished I'd written." Modern standards like The Doors' "The Crystal Ship" and The Psychedelic Furs' "The Ghost In You" are reimagined as stark and melancholy folk ballads, and then set to powerful effect alongside haunting new songs like the plaintive "Recalling The Truth." Hitchcock's 20th solo studio recording - give or take a few outtake, demo, and rarities compilations - The Man Upstairs is a remarkable portrait of an artist raging quietly against the dying of the proverbial light. "Yet another autumnal record," says Robyn. "Yet another elegiac record. It's reminiscent of I Often Dream Of Trains-there's a lot of autumn on that record as well.1. The Ghost In You
