    Some Great Reward

    The peak of the band's industrial-gone-mainstream fusion, and still one of the best electronic music albums yet recorded, Some Great Reward still sounds great, with the band's ever-evolving musical and production skills matching even more ambitious songwriting from Martin Gore. People Are People appears here, but finds itself outclassed by some of Depeche Mode's undisputed classics, most especially the moody, beautiful Somebody, a Gore-sung piano ballad that mixes its wit and emotion skillfully; Master and Servant, an amped-up, slamming dance track that conflates sexual and economic politics to sharp effect; and the closing Blasphemous Rumors, a slow-building anthemic number supporting one of Gore's most cynical lyrics, addressing a suicidal teen who finds God only to die soon afterward. Even lesser-known tracks like the low-key pulse of Lie to Me and the weirdly dreamy It Doesn't Matter showcase an increasingly confident band. Alan Wilder's arrangements veer from the big to the stripped down, but always with just the right touch, such as the crowd samples bubbling beneath Somebody or the call/response a cappella start to Master and Servant. With Reward, David Gahan's singing style found the mÉtier it was going to stick with for the next ten years, and while it's never gone down well with some ears, it still has a compelling edge to it that suits the material well.

    Pulse/Quartet

    Nonesuch releases Steve Reich's Pulse / Quartet. Pulse (2015) is performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE)-an artist collective committed to transforming the way music is created and experienced-and Quartet (2013) is played by the Colin Currie Group, an ensemble led by percussionist Colin Currie that specializes in the music of Steve Reich; these are also the ensembles that gave the world premiere performances of the respective works.


    Reich says, Pulse, for winds, strings, piano and electric bass, was completed in 2015 and was, in part, a reaction to Quartet, in which I changed keys more frequently than in any previous work. In Pulse I felt the need to stay put harmonically and spin out smoother wind and string melodic lines in canon over a constant pulse in the electric bass and or piano. From time to time this constant pulse is accented differently through changing hand alternation patterns on the piano. All in all, a calmer more contemplative piece.


    He continues, Quartet, when mentioned in the context of concert music, is generally assumed to mean string quartet. In my case, the quartet that has played a central role in many of my pieces (besides the string quartet) is that of two pianos and two percussion. It appears like that or in expanded form with more pianos or more percussion in The Desert Music; Sextet; Three Movements; The Four Sections; The Cave; Dance Patterns; Three Tales; You Are (Variations); Variations for Vibes, Pianos and Strings; Daniel Variations; Double Sextet; and Radio Rewrite. In Quartet, there is just this group alone: two vibes and two pianos.


    The piece is one of the more complex I have composed. It frequently changes key and often breaks off continuity to pause or take up new material. Though the parts are not unduly difficult, it calls for a high level of ensemble virtuosity. The form is one familiar throughout history: fast, slow, fast, played without pause. The slow movement introduces harmonies not usually found in my music.


    Steve Reich has been called our greatest living composer (New York Times) and the most original musical thinker of our time (New Yorker). His path has embraced not only Western Classical music, but the structures, harmonies, and rhythms of non-Western and American vernacular music, particularly jazz. There's just a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history and Steve Reich is one of them, states the Guardian. In April 2009 Steve Reich was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Music for his composition Double Sextet. Nonesuch has released twenty-three Steve Reich albums, beginning in 1985 with The Desert Music and including two box sets; his most recent album was Radio Rewrite (2014).

    Heavyweight, futurist dub from a cross-generational pairing of sound systems masters. The culmination of two years in the studio developing, re-dubbing and deconstructing tracks. Evocative of a long and strange journey from dusk til dawn, it finds the highest common factor between the two producer's techniques.

    I See Beyond The Black Sun

    This record is less the apocalyptic doom of his ramshackle post-punk group Old Time Relijun, and more of a raga influenced anthropological meditation. This music winds like an infinite snake around the vine of a central note, probing hypnotically as Mr. de Dionyso inexhaustibly exhales mandalas, spirals, unknowable cuneiforms, and other beguiling shapes, while simultaneously driving the pulse and drone to advance, like a slow motion tsunami, towards a shocking climax of release - Michael Gira, Angels Of Light / Swans.

    Born And Thrown On A Hook

    Drink Up Buttercup may hail from Philadelphia but the geography of their debut album Born & Thrown On A Hook is less easily located on a physical map. It's an occasionally surreal mythology filled with tales of hopelessly flawed characters, star-crossed lovers, drunks, fairy tales & bad trips. It exists in a world touched upon previously by Tom Waits, Hans Christian Anderson and Lloyd Kaufman while musically it follows the direct lineage of classic songwriting: Bowie, The Beatles & The Beach Boys' late 60s lysergia, early Roxy Music, Sabbath's bass heavy pulse & the crescendos of Arcade Fire.

    Wilderness Heart

    Wilderness Heart, the new album by Black Mountain, is packed with succinct rock songs that pulse and pound with startling precision: it pummels you and you ask for more. This is arguably the band's tightest, most concentrated venture, but there's still plenty of raw rock energy at work. It's our most metal and most folk oriented record so far, songwriter Stephen McBean says. I'm not gonna say it's our best record or the album that we always dreamt of making 'cause that's what everyone says. It's all about where we were at the time the machines were rolling.

    Hoyas

    Hoyas by S. Carey is a hospitable statement about love, longing and the celebration of knowing it well. You will find the familiar S. Carey modern classical repetition pushed into the vernacular of electronic music and beat making. This is the warmest electronic music you'll ever meet. The beats swing, stutter and pulse while each instrument retains a heightened awareness of its form and function within the larger family of voices. Hoyas was mixed and produced by the Grammy Award Winning team of Justin Vernon and Brian Joseph of Bon Iver.

    Escape From Evil

    On Escape From Evil, Lower Dens' Jana Hunter emerges: cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and
    incorruptible, and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice.


    Hunter stepping up and taking center stage has emboldened every other aspect of the band.
    Escape From Evil is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of
    the album is strong. Melodies are potent and songs are physical. Lyrics are direct, frank
    confrontations with life's common crises. The album title is brazen, and along with the grimly
    funny title of lead single, To Die in L.A., almost theatrical.

    Autobahn

    Ranked 253/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Limited Edition

    In 2009, Kraftwerk have upgraded their Kling Klang masters with the latest studio technology and these magnificent recordings still sound like nothing else in the history of music. Kraftwerk are unique, pristine, profound and beautiful. Decades may pass, but their streamlined synthetic symphonies stand outside time, as fresh as tomorrow, transcendent and sublime.


    Though they'd recorded three previous albums, Kraftwerk's modern pop legacy starts with this impressionistic excursion down Germany's famed superhighway. The rhythmic synth pulse that carries the title track is a sonic revelation while co-founder Florian Schneider's flute work and other more delicate melodic touches hearken back to the band's prog-rock foundations as do the atmospheric Kometenmelodie 1 & 2, Mitternacht and Morgenspaziergang.

    Young The Giant

    Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, The Shins, My Morning Jacket), mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, My Morning Jacket) and recorded at Los Angeles' Sunset Sound Studios and Kingsize Studio, the 12-song self-titled album from the California five-piece Yount The Giant is an arresting collection of bright, melodic rock that ushers in the band as a fresh and vital presence.



    From the jolting percussion and anthemic chorus of My Body to the driving guitars and lovesick fervor of Cough Syrup, Young The Giant is overflowing with addictive melodies and heartfelt lyrics at every turn. Islands marries off-kilter jazz rhythms with vocalist Sameer Gadhia's haunting falsetto to create an unnerving effect. The electric slide guitar that punctuates Street Walker shrouds the song's frenetic pulse and soaring vocals in mystery. The chiming guitars in Twelve Fingers exude pure joy, while the rhythmic swing of Strings, and the sun-stained pop of I Got capture Young The Giant in their SoCal glory.

    Crimson Throne (Awaiting Repress)


    Red/White Split Color Vinyl


    The story of the doomed mission of the Space Shuttle Ambition. Classic science fiction of the darkest order. And so it goes, every track here is the potential soundtrack for some lost B movie classic, from the almost disco drums and groovy synth pulse of the title track, wreathed in sweeping swaths of keyboard shimmer, to the creeping komische swirl of Weightless which would no doubt score some 2001 A Space Odyssey type sentient computer/alien on board seventies sci-fi thriller, to the drum machine drive new wave-y grooviness of Solar Winds, which sounds like the weirdly and creepily jaunty music that plays beneath the closing credits, over the last image freeze-framed, alternatively it also sounds like some lost cold wave gem that could be a Dark Entries resissue!

    Oh! Gravity

    The highly anticipated sixth album from Switchfoot, contains 12 new tracks written by the band an produced by Tim Palmer (Tin Machine, Pearl Jam, The Cure, Mother Love Bone, U2) & Switchfoot with Grammy winning executive producer Steve Lillywhite. The new album expands Switchfoot's sonic palette while at the same time dealing with social issues on songs like the alt-country blues of 'Dirty Second Hands,' in which Jon Foreman sings of the dehumanization that comes with technology. Other politically motivated tracks include 'Oh! Gravity' the title track's generational appeal for love, peace and understanding, 'American Dram,' with its biting truth, 'Awakening,' about trying to recover the innocence of a child in the midst of an ever harsher reality, the sawing alt-country of 'Head Over Heels,' the exotic instrumentation and Middle Eastern flavor of 'Circles,' the REM-esque pulse of '4:12', the lush Brit-pop melodies of 'Yesterdays,' the Echo and the Bunnymen/Smiths influenced 'Burn Out Bright' and Motown sound of 'Amateur Lovers.'

    Hiss Spun

    Features Etching On Side D (No Music)

    While past albums operated on the intimacy of stripped-down folk music (The Grime and the Glow, Unknown Rooms), or the throbbing pulse of supplemental electronics (Pain Is Beauty, Abyss), Chelsea Wolfe's sixth official album Hiss Spun wrings its exquisiteness out of a palette of groaning bass, pounding drums, and crunching distortion. Recorded by Kurt Ballou (Converge), the album was conceived as an emotional purge, a means of coming to terms with the tumult of the outside world by exploring the complexities of one's inner unrest. I'm at odds with myself, she explains. I got tired of trying to disappear. The record became very personal in that way. I wanted to open up more, but also create my own reality. Hiss Spun features contributions by Aaron Turner (Old Man Gloom, SUMAC) and Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure).

    Strange Hearts

    In a year full of bail-outs and bank failures, Secret Cities found themselves fortunate to occupy the basement of a recently abandoned bank in Kansas City, Missouri. Complete with bulletproof glass, functioning pneumatic tubes, and a giant vault, this space served as the band's studio as they recorded their sophomore effort, Strange Hearts.


    After recording their debut at a glacial pace over five years, Secret Cities decided to try something radically different. Working against a self imposed deadline, Strange Hearts was written and recorded within three intense, creatively fertile (if sleepless) months. The effort paid off with a taught pop record, crystallized like coal under enormous pressure.


    Filtering the classic romanticism of Dusty Springfield and the Shangri-Las through their own kaleidoscopic aesthetic, these songs pulse with an alluring mixture of melancholy and hopeful innocence, as warm and inviting as they are elusive and peculiar. While carefully crafted, the album possesses a newfound brevity and directness rooted in the excitement of creation. Ultimately, Strange Hearts is the sound of a young band testing its limits and finding that it hasn't hit them yet.

    Absolute II


    Absolute II is the final piece in Oneidas Thank Your Parents triptych of releases, begun in 2008 with Preteen Weaponry and followed by 2009s acclaimed triple disc Rated O. With this release, the Brooklyn group concludes a challenging and profound long-term project. The Thank Your Parents triptych, totaling around 200 minutes, is intended to be listened to as a whole or in its component parts. Absolute II stands on its own, in addition to serving as a chapter in an immense whole.


    The music on Absolute II is startling, rigorous and demanding. Oneida is a band that has been strongly identified with the frenetic, fluid drumming of Kid Millions and the relentless pulse of classic Krautrock, but this release contains neither audible drums nor identifiable rock music. The recordings move freely across accepted boundaries of rhythm, harmony, and tonality, not in the form of dramatic, willful experiment, but as a musical distillation of several themes that have emerged in the wake of Rated Os dynamism: paralysis, entropy, stasis, possibility, and finality among them.


    While Oneida is known for unpredictability and sui generis musical forms, this release is particularly resistant to categorization, and it remains difficult to identify precise influences on the music contained here.

    Bon Iver

    Bon Iver is Justin Vernon returning to former haunts with a new spirit. The reprises are there, solitude, quietude, hope and desperation compressed, but always a rhythm arises, a pulse vivified by gratitude and grace notes. The winter, the legend, has faded to just that, and this is the new momentary present.


    Bon Iver is often equated with just me, says Vernon, but you are who surrounds you, and for Bon Iver I wanted to invite those voices as musical catalysts. Thus on the track Beth/Rest and throughout the album, we hear the pedal steel of Greg Leisz (Lucinda Williams, Bill Frisell), the uniquely layered low end of Colin Stetsons (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire) saxophones, the riffing of Mike Lewis (Happy Apple, Andrew Bird) altos and tenors, and the lush horns of C.J. Camerieri (Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens). Bon Iver regulars Sean Carey, Mike Noyce and Matt McCaughan contributed vocals, drums and production, Rob Moose (Antony and the Johnsons, The National) helped with arranging and added strings, and fellow members of Volcano Choir, Jim Schoenecker and Tom Wincek provided processing.


    Bon Iver was recorded and mixed over the course of three years at April Base Studios, a remodeled veterinarians clinic located in rural Fall Creek, Wisconsin.

    Like Mirage

    Moholy-Nagy is the moniker of San Francisco /
    Berlin-based musicians Jefre Cantu-Ledesma (The
    Alps), Danny Paul Grody (The Drift) and Trevor
    Montgomery (Lazarus, The Drift). The trio are the
    founding members of Tarentel a group that helped
    inspired a decades worth of widescreen ambient rock
    and Like Mirage reunites them for the first time since
    that group's sophomore album, The Order of Things,
    was released almost a decade ago.


    Recorded and mixed by Phil Manley of Trans Am and
    The Fucking Champs, Like Mirage is the culmination
    of many months of improvisation, exploration and a
    few scattered live performances in the Bay Area.
    Although beginning with no particular sound or vision
    in mind, the groups interest slowly began to revolve
    around electric bass, analogue synthesizers, and the
    steady pulse of the drum machine. Expanding their
    pallet while in the recording studio to include piano,
    acoustic and electric guitars and the live drums of
    Damon Palermo (Jonas Reinhardt, Mi Ami), the
    group bottled a vibrant landscape that recalls the late
    70's explosion of cosmic and new age music as if it
    were a sunset descending on the damp streets of San
    Francisco.

    A Trip To Marineville

    Brothers Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks started the Swell Maps in the early 1970s while in their teens. The band's chaotic mix of arty experimentalism, garage primitivism, and punk rock gumption established a template for the British DIY post-punk movement of the late '70s and early '80s. The band's 1979 debut, A TRIP TO MARINEVILLE, perfectly captures the band's two disparate yet strangely compatible elements. Songs such as Spitfire Parade, Another Song, and the rousing opener H.S. Art burn with youthful abandon and a glammy, knowingly primitive cool. Yet by Don't Throw Ashtrays at Me and Bridge Head, the listener is presented with an almost completely different band, as improvised noise, clattering percussion, found sounds, and ambient piano soundscapes overtake the more straightforward rock elements that introduced the album. The hypnotic pulse of Krautrock creeps in on Full Moon in My Pocket and BLAM!! and the Sonic Youth blueprint is presented fully formed on Gunboat. For the Swell Maps, the call to arms of punk rock wasn't about empty gestures toward anarchy and social rebellion, but rather the notion of a personal revolution via the limitless possibilities of art. A Trip To Marineville perfectly captures this realization.
