    Ease My Mind

    Ease My Mind, the fifth full-length by Shout Out Louds, is a welcome return from these Swedish pop masters.

    In their 15 years as a band, Shout Out Louds have toured the world many times. The band played a show in the Brazilian rainforest with a freezer box for a dressing room. They once performed in Yokohama,Japan, for an audience of two Austrians. They played in a Sicilian rainstorm so heavy they had to shake out their instruments afterwards,with the soaked backdrop left hung to dry on a hotel façade. Themusic sites will remind you that the band have performed for DavidLetterman and Jay Leno and toured with The Strokes during their heyday, but most importantly, they have released four albums of brilliant pop music.

    Ease My Mind was recorded with Fredrik Swahn (from the band The Amazing) who filled the band with such new energy that they were willing to commute to the 'burbs during the darkest months of the year. He was joined by Måns Lundberg who produced the song Souvenirs and Axel Algmark who produced No Logic andAngel. The band recruited Lars Skoglund for drums, known for his work with Lykke Li.

    Adam and Bebban in the band write: The world is a different place now than it was in the beginning of the 2000s. We didn't grow up very aware of political messages in music and probably didn't feel much of an urgent need to understand the world around us, in that sense. However, that has changed over the years. The world has seemed extremely dystopic and frail for quite a while now, and having children and getting older forces you to open your eyes to issues more devastating than heartbreak and feeling lost. But in our music, we still allow ourselves to address things the way we always have: through emotions rather than analysis. Music as a means of escape, a need to take a break from feeling petrified with fear. Ease My Mind is a lot about that for us.

    An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979)

    An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979) compiles
    unreleased recordings from the archives of multiversal artist Ariel Kalma.
    Concerned as much with musicality as spiritual facility, Kalma's work
    vibrates aside fellow travelers along the great rainbow in curved air of
    the 1970s avant-garde.


    Ariel Kalma's boundary-blurring electronic music is heard here in
    radiant detail across a selection of work spanning his early free-jazz
    and spoken word trips to his infinite modular synthesizer and primitive
    drum machine meditations. Kalma's story is one of world travel, musical
    discovery and ego-abandonment. Yet for an artist who often discarded
    public recognition in favor of the ascetic truths in music making, An
    Evolutionary Music offers the imprint of an outright auteur.


    Born in France, but rarely in one place for long, Ariel Kalma's 1970s
    migrations took flight through the decade's furthest spaces of musical
    and spiritual invention. As a hired horn for well-known French groups,
    the young musician toured as far as India, a place where Kalma would
    learn circular breathing techniques enabling him to sustain notes without
    pause against tape-looping harmonies configured through his homemade
    effects units.


    Those effects evolved from Kalma's loyalty to a beloved dual ReVox
    set-up- two tape machines "chained" together to form a primitive delay
    unit. Over looped saxophone melodies, Kalma would mix in all shades of
    polyphonic color, synthesizing fragments of poetry with ambient space or
    setting modal flute melodies to rippling drum machine patterns and starlit
    field recordings.


    In France during the mid-1970s, Kalma was staffed as a technician at
    Pierre Henry's legendary Institut National Audiovisuel, Groupe de Recherches
    Musicales (INA GRM) studios - the same music concrÉte laboratory that
    spawned masterpieces by members Luc Ferrari, Iannis Xenakis, and Bernard
    Parmegiani. Like his predecessors and colleagues at INA GRM, Kalma's
    relationship to sound was both formal and non-hierarchical. To Kalma, all
    music existed as related universal patterns, in perfect harmony with the
    people, places and environments it was created.


    Kalma's recorded output of the 1970s culminated in the now scarcely-available Les Temps des Moissons (trans. The Time of Harvest) in 1975,
    and a masterpiece of birdsong exploration with Osmose in 1978. Osmose
    is double album featuring sculptor Richard Tinti, who had supplied Kalma
    with hours of field recordings from the rainforests of Borneo.


    An Evolutionary Music harvests uncatalogued music made between
    Kalma's private press records and onward through the many small-batch
    cassette releases Kalma would tender. With this collection of musical
    hybridity and distinct genre-corrosion, Ariel Kalma's righteous bucking of
    both popular music trends and the academic tenets of the avant-garde
    falls squarely in the spirit of other renegades of sacred new-music such as
    Terry Riley, La Monte Young, and Charlemagne Palestine.

    A Forest of Arms

    A Forest Of Arms is the new album from Tony Dekker's Great Lake Swimmers and the follow up to 2012's
    New Wild Everywhere. With a surging rhythm section, razor sharp violin, and flourishing banjo and guitars, Dekker
    and band mates have pushed their sound significantly, creating some of their most dynamic songs ever recorded.
    Those familiar with the decade-long output of Great Lake Swimmers will recognize the thematic threads of
    beauty in the natural world, environmental issues and explorations of close personal ties that hold us together. The
    familiar versus the strange theme is also running through this record, both in the instrumentation and in the
    songwriting ("Zero In The City", "I Was A Wayward Pastel Bay").
    As with past Great Lake Swimmers albums, A Forest Of Arms was recorded in several locations over the span of
    several months, covering extensive new territory while remaining true to the group's refined sound. One of the
    unique and unusual locations was Tyendinaga Cavern and Caves in Tyendinaga, Ontario, where a number of the
    vocal and acoustic guitar tracks, including the main parts for "Don't Leave Me Hanging," "The Great Bear" and
    "With Every Departure," were recorded amid haunting acoustics, stalactites, and circling bats.
    The violins were recorded at the Heliconian Club of Toronto, while the bass and drum tracks were largely recorded
    at the Chalet Studio just outside of Toronto, a unique chalet-style recording space located on 40 acres of rolling hills
    and trails, in proximity to the shores of Lake Ontario. The pastoral and elemental nature of these spaces surfaces
    throughout the album.
    The title, A Forest Of Arms, is taken from album track "The Great Bear," a song inspired by a trip Dekker took to the
    northern rainforests of British Columbia in September 2013 with the World Wildlife Fund. It's a pristine wilderness
    area that is under threat of being compromised by the construction of a pipeline, and Dekker and the group
    have been very vocal in their opposition to it. In a broader sense, the title is also a reference to the sense
    of community surrounding the Toronto-based band, as well as the band's own growing families, exhibited in
    the songs "Something Like A Storm" and "Expecting You.
