    Rufus Wainwright

    Rufus Wainwright is the eponymous debut studio album by Canadian-American singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, originally released in 1998. The album was produced by Jon Brion, except In My Arms was produced and mixed by Pierre Marchand, and Millbrook and Baby were produced by Brion and Van Dyke Parks. Lenny Waronker was the executive producer.

    Wainwright was signed to the DreamWorks label in 1996 after Waronker heard the demo tape he recorded with Marchand. Over the course of two years, Wainwright and Brion recorded 56 songs on 62 rolls of tape at a cost that exceeded $700,000, which was then narrowed down to twelve tracks for the album. No singles were released from Rufus Wainwright, though Sophie Muller directed the music video for April Fools, which featured Wainwright in Los Angeles attempting to prevent the deaths of opera heroines. To support the album, Wainwright toured throughout the United States and Canada following its release.

    Though the album failed to chart in any nations, Wainwright reached number 24 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart (which highlights sales by new and developing musical recording artists) and Rolling Stone named Wainwright the Best New Artist of 1998. Rufus Wainwright also earned him recognitions from the Gay & Lesbian American Music Awards, the GLAAD Media Awards and the Juno Awards.

    Poses is the second studio album by the American-Canadian singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, originally released in 2001, and now available on vinyl for the first time. The album was produced, recorded, and mixed by Pierre Marchand, with select tracks produced by Propellerheads' Alex Gifford (Shadows), Ethan Johns (California), Damian LeGassick (The Tower of Learning), and Greg Wells (Across the Universe).

    Poses contains ornate, piano-driven arrangements that cite a wide variety of musical sources, from indie pop to Gershwin to trip-hop and back again. The album took a year and a half to record, most of it written during Wainwright's six-month stay at the Chelsea Hotel. While Poses continues the enveloping sound established by Wainwright's debut album, collaborations between Wainwright and various producers and guest musicians pushed it in different directions, resulting in drum loops, gritty beats in unexpected places, and a fuller, live sound. Using fewer operatic elements than the previous album, in an attempt to create a more radio-friendly pop record, Poses addresses debauchery and love in less esoteric means. Guests on the album include Wainwright's sister, Martha Wainwright, fellow singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson, and rock musician Melissa Auf der Maur.

    All tracks were written by Wainwright except for Shadows, which was co-written by Alex Gifford, and One Man Guy, a song written and originally performed by Wainwright's father, Loudon Wainwright III.

    Leonard Cohen Greatest Hits


    'No-one ever listens to me anyway, I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record', Neil once said during an episode of the notorious 'Young Ones'. This has changed dramatically. Cohen's 'Hallelujah' has reached the charts several times performed by various vocalists. Massive sold out concerts and well-known artists like Lou Reed, Bono, Nick Cave, Antony and Rufus Wainwright paying homage resulted in a huge re-appreciation which led to a whole new generation getting in touch with Cohen's impressive repertoire. This album is the perfect anthology of this legend's career.

    Let's get down to brass tacks: Ridgewood, NJ's Real Estate took a mighty leap
    forward on their last go-around... more record sales... bigger shows... and, more
    importantly, a timeless classic of an album, Days. It's been two years since the
    release of Days, and it's an album that still sounds as fresh today as it did on
    release date. Their new album, Atlas, builds upon the lush guitar warmth of Days
    while adding more powerful harmonies and keyboard flourishes bringing even more
    depth to their heart-warming sound.

    Atlas was recorded over the summer at Wilco's Chicago recording studio, The Loft,
    with producer/mixer Tom Schick (Wilco, Rufus Wainwright, Alex Chilton), and while
    this pairing that looks so good on paper, sounds even better on record!
    Real Estate kick off the campaign with the dreamy pop single "Talking Backwards,"
    which was released as a limited edition 7"at the end of February.

    When I Said I Wanted To Be Your Dog (Awaiting Repress)

    Call it a curse: Jens Lekman's world is populated by an endless stream of women. There he is, his hair mussed and glasses off-kilter, sitting in the corner of the cafe with his journal once again - and he's being torn in two. Moments ago he fell in love with the redheaded barista who nailed his order - when she scooted that cappuccino across the counter, it was clear that there was a connection. And now, his eye catches the picture of divinity in the shape of the most finely featured brunette he's ever seen...and she's looking his way. But which way to go? It's tragic having to make such choices. Like Fellini's The Man Who Loved Women, Jens Lekman is a man forever at a crossroads between competing inspirations.

    At only 23, Lekman has deservedly been the center of much hype in Scandinavia. Having made a name for himself performing under the name Rocky Dennis, he recently hit #2 on the Swedish National Pop Charts. Most everyone who's heard him believes him to be the next great pop star emerging from the streets of the DIY underground. With an angelic voice and golden ears he seems to be drinking from the same hard waters as The Carpenters, Harry Nilsson, The Magnetic Fields, Runt-era Todd Rundgren, Bill Callahan's Smog, The Modern Lovers, Rufus Wainwright and Belle & Sebastian.

Since the 2005 release of their Naturally LP, the band has continued to build a worldwide following for their raw soulful recordings and blistering live performances. Like the highly acclaimed Naturally LP before it, 100 Days, 100 Nights was recorded in their self-built, self-operated, all analog recording studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn and bares the unmistakable Daptone Soul Sound - highly in demand among music fans and tastemakers alike. In the last year, producers such as Kanye West, Mark Ronson, Hank Shocklee, and Kenny Dope have been among those who came knocking at Daptone�s door seeking the inimitable Dap-Kings sound. The Dap-Kings lend a tougher edge to their own productions for such artists as Rhymefest, Lily Allen, Ghostface Killah and Amy Winehouse. Meanwhile, Sharon Jones herself has past the time between touring lending the her soulful voice to projects for Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright, They Might Be Giants and others.

    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.

    I Speak Because I Can

    Ribbon Music is pleased to announce deluxe re-issues of Laura Marlings first two critically acclaimed albums; Alas I Cannot Swim and I Speak Because I Can on LP. I Speak Because I Can was the self assured second album from the young British singer/songwriter, originally released in 2010. The album was produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainwright) and featured backing vocals from Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons).

    Since her emergence onto the London music scene in 2007 Laura Marling has steadily secured her position as one of the most exciting musical talents of her generation. By the tender age of 21 she has already won a BRIT award and been nominated for the UK Mercury Music prize twice. While so many artists of any age attempt to locate their inner child, Marling with a sometime steely gaze, measures the prerogatives of youth against the looming realities of adulthood, the specter of mortality, the betrayals of love, the balm of sex, the yearning for companionship, the need for independence. As the Times Of London recently posited, Who else is making music as ambitious, as haunting, as centuries-straddling, as thought provoking and artistically tenacious as this? And the answer is: nobody. No, really. Not a soul.

    Marling, who started out, briefly but auspiciously, with a stint in the group Noah and the Whale, was a mere 16 when she independently released her first singles and almost immediately gained serious stature as a key figure on Britains burgeoning young folk scene, alongside such artists and friends as singer/actor Johnny Flynn and Mumford & Sons. The two startlingly self-assured albums that followed, Alas I Cannot Swim (2008) and I Speak Because I Can (2010), brought the self-effacing and relatively shy Marling an extraordinary level of acclaim in her homeland, with each of them in turn being nominated for the U.K.s prestigious Mercury Prize. Remastered on 180g vinyl with deluxe gatefold packaging.

    "Musically she exists somewhere between
    Feist and Townes Van Zandt, and her New
    York-by-way-of-Kentucky pluck is a refreshing
    antidote to schmaltzy neo-folk"
    - SPIN

    "Dawn Landes' music sits neatly on the
    fulcrum between Cat Power and Neko Case"
    - PASTE

    " compelling mix of alternative folk with
    instrumental experimentation just the right
    hint of country"
    - NPR

    " Landes is a haunting presence in the world
    of alt-folk experimentalism.

    Based in Brooklyn, but raised in Louisville, singer-songwriter Dawn Landes has been writing
    songs for most of her life, and at 33 already has more than a decade of experience as a
    professional producer and engineer. After leaving NYU where she studied psychology and
    literature, Landes began honing her production and engineering skills, working at Stratosphere Sound
    (owned by James Iha, Adam Schlesinger, and Andy Chase), and at Philip Glass'
    personal recording studio, before launching Saltlands Studio in Brooklyn with partners Steve
    Salett and Gary Maurer.

    Her new album Bluebird was produced in collaboration with good friend Thomas Bartlett
    (known for his work with The National, Sharon Van Etten, Rufus Wainwright, Antony and the
    Johnsons, and many others), and features contributions from Tony Scherr, Rob Moose, and
    Norah Jones.

    Press coverage of Bluebird will understandably present this album as Dawn's answer to her
    ex's divorce record. However, like any great songwriter, she's abstracting her personal
    narratives enough to leave them open to interpretation and a larger meaning. Bartlett's
    spartan production keeps the vibe intimate, making it easy to connect with these naked and
    honest songs which manage to rise above the context in which they were written. In the end,
    the fact that Bluebird is Landes' way of processing the overwhelming emotions she dealt
    with after her divorce doesn't matter - there are two sides to every story, and this is hers.

    In The Wilderness

    Stranger Cat is the new project from Cat Martino, Sufjan Stevens' right hand woman for
    the Age of Adz tour and record, as well as All Delighted People. Cat was also a recording
    and touring member of Sharon Van Etten's band circa Epic. She appeared with The Shins
    on SNL and Williamsburg Park, played in Passion Pit at Governor's Ball, and sings on the
    Son Lux record Lanterns. She has had the pleasure to support Indians, Night Beds, Rufus
    Wainwright, Marissa Nadler, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Patrick Watson.

    Cat retreated from Brooklyn, NY to winter in the Sierra Foothills to write and record
    songs emerging from loops using her voice, synths, and percussion. With her pedal chain
    and gear in a small cottage she explored the gamut from ethereal to turbulence. Simple
    melodies or beats became powerful walls of sound melting through snowstorms, howling
    winds and stark silence nestled inside gargantuan oaks and the infinite starry dome.
    Joined by Sven Britt for a week, each of them traded making beats, or melodic parts on
    casios, synths, guitars, branches and spoons, while the other recorded. Often a cat would
    come to the door to listen, meowing to be let in. When it appeared daily they called it
    Stranger Cat, and observed its alien supernatural powers, as she'd heard tell of the
    Foothills' long history of UFO sightings and ghost haunts. One day they let Stranger Cat
    in. The plump feline ate all the kitty food and left.

    Out of this adventure was born In The Wilderness, the duo's debut full-length out on Joyful Noise Recordings

    I Am A Bird Now

    This second full-length features contributions from both Antony's peers (Rufus Wainwright, Devendra Banhart) and heroes (Lou Reed, Boy George). Their involvement reflects both their admiration for Antony and his unique place in the contemporary arts community. Reed asked Antony to perform as part of the small ensemble on Reed's American and European tours, and he gave Antony a solo turn on the Velvet Underground classic Candy Says, an homage to another one of Antony's inspirations, Andy Warhol. In fact, the image adorning the cover of this album is Peter Hujar's striking 1974 photo, Candy Darling On Her Deathbed. Like some unsettling ghost relative of Jeff Buckley and Billie Holiday singing for all the fallen, this is tough, honest, uncompromising beauty and the next great voice in music - Mojo. If a great voice is often said to be an instrument, Antony's is a near orchestra, carrying extremes of emotion, great waves of suffering, tragedy, redemption, and joy - Metro. Look for a full US tour this fall.

    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.
