    The Moonlight Butterfly

    In January of 2011 Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, John McEntire, and Eric Claridge reconvened at Chicago's Soma Electronic Music Studios to record their latest release The Moonlight Butterfly.


    This 33 minute mini-album finds the band delivering much more long form and cinematic pieces. The new songs lean upon the band's more experimental tendencies, taking time to stretch the forms and in someways the new material relates to the way the band re-interprets some of their songs live.


    With the band making a shorter than usual record they were allowed to take more chances and ended up with a release that leans a bit more towards the instrumental. Rather than having the vocals be the sole focal point the shifts in emphasis to other instruments facilitated a more open approach.

    The Republic

    Regardless of the style he is working in, Sam Prekop''s music is always imbued with a sense of wide-eyed discovery and exploration. As the singer and guitarist of The Sea and Cake, Prekop has incorporated elements of traditional styles from around the world, expanding the public perception of what it means to be the leader of a pop band. In recent years, he has also established himself as a modular synthesist, building his instrument meticulously to find the perfect combination of oscillators, sequencers, limiters and filters to create a system that allows him to create sounds that are surprising and inviting. His new album The Republic is his latest synthesizer work, following 2010's Old Punch Card, and showcases Prekop''s talent for creating expressive music through mechanical patterns, repetitions, and chance. Prekop''s innate gifts of melodic turns of phrase that have made him a revered songwriter are transferred into new forms in his synthesizer work, aided by the unpredictable melodic capabilities of analog sequencers, and The Republic is an exciting new chapter in his development as an accomplished synthesist. The first half of The Republic consists of songs that were originally created as a score for a video installation of the same name by David Hartt, which was shown at the David Nolan Gallery in New York. These pieces strike an impressive balance between control and spontaneity, seamlessly transitioning from abstraction and discord into passages of blissful harmonic consonance. The second half of the record consists of some of Prekop''s most warm and inviting synth work yet, built using ideas that worked better on their own as opposed to accompanying the installation. These songs have a sense of forward motion that is often missing in many recordings by modern modular synthesists, which Prekop attributes to his incorporation of the instrument into his writing process for The Sea and Cake's acclaimed 2012 album Runner. The Republic is an entrancing album that moves Prekop''s synthesizer compositions further into the realm of the accessible without abandoning the experimental legacy of the instrument.

    Aeropop

    Alexander von Mehren is a 28 year-old Norwegian pianist, songwriter and producer. His self-recorded debut album, AÉropop, was mixed with John McEntire (Stereolab, Tortoise, The Sea and Cake) in Chicago and mastered with Steve Rooke at Abbey Road Studios in London.


    The album, featuring contributions from members of The High Llamas, Jaga Jazzist and Orwell, is especially inspired by British, French and Italian library music and soundtracks of the 60s and 70s and is focused primarily on orchestrated alternative
    pop music sung in French and English (in addition to instrumental tracks). Alex plays most of the instruments on the album himself.

    What Am I Doing


    Debut Album From This Brooklyn Band


    Album Produced By Annabel Alpers Of Bachelorette (Drag City)


    Mixed By Adam Cooke (Beach House / Double Dagger)


    Lushes are a band born of tensions - between art and math,
    order and chaos, planning and chance. You can hear it in their
    songs - taut, twitching art-punk that balance anxiety and elation,
    often within the space of a few bars. Album opener Harsh glides
    along slowly, feeling like a moody and measured art-rock
    meditation until you zero in on the words in the chorus: Harsh on
    my ears, that's the way I like it. This is push-pull music, songs
    that temper the jagged fitfulness of groups like June of 44 and
    Slint with the soft-focus sweetness and open-ended song
    structures of The Sea & Cake and The Notwist.


    That moods so diametrically opposed can peacefully coexist is
    part of Lushes mystery and allure. That duality extends to the
    group's background. James Ardery and Joel Myers were living in
    worlds far removed from music, both working day jobs that
    neither of them enjoyed. Their personalities were different -
    James was outspoken and gregarious, Joel introverted and
    reserved. Their musical backgrounds were different: James grew
    up pillaging his father's record collection, getting turned on to
    Nirvana and Wu-Tang Clan by his older brother and attending
    hardcore shows by pioneering bands like Fugazi at 12 years old.
    Joel was formally trained, loving classical music but almost
    completely oblivious to rock and pop. The fusion of their disparate
    influences is what animates Lushes - the anarchy of punk and
    hardcore colliding with the precision of jazz to create music that is
    marvelously ordered while still feeling seconds away from
    detonation. That tension pulses throughout What Am I Doing, the
    group's warring influences making for music that feels brittle and
    vital.

    TigerFace (Out Of Stock)

    Over three previous studio albums, pianist/sound-sculptor/songwriter Marco Benevento has set forth a vision for instrumental music that connects the dots between Explosions In The Sky and Tortoise on one side, Brian Eno and Brad Mehldau on the other. On his fourth studio recording, 'Tigerface', the 34-year old artist takes the next step forward in this evolution. Benevento paints his songs in a myriad of sonic colors, shimmering in acoustic piano, synths and analog keyboards. The tunes themselves conceptualized from seemingly every wisp of melody, hook and cadence that s ever tickled his ear. The album was recorded and mixed by Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Fiona Apple) and Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Akron/Family), while Benevento invited a stellar cast of musicians to help capture his ideas, including drummers Matt Chamberlain (Bill Frisell, Pearl Jam), John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea & The Cake) and Andrew Barr (The Barr Brothers), bassists Dave Dreiwitz (Ween), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) and Mike Gordon (Phish), violinist Ali Helnwein (Traction Avenue Chamber Orchestra) and saxophonist Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, Superhuman Happiness). For the first time on record he uses vocals, inviting Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket) to sing on the infectious dance rock rave-up 'Limbs Of A Pine' and the pastoral psych rock meditation 'This Is How It Goes'. Other standouts include the angelic Arcade Fire meets The Flaming Lips anthem 'Eagle Rock', the soaring garage psychadelia of 'Going West', the piano riff rock jaunt 'Escape Horse', and the happily lilting 'Fireworks', which bounces along like a long lost Italian folk song beamed down to him by ancestors from his father s homeland. As anybody who's seen Benevento perform live can attest, the pianist eyes closed, smile wide across his face, fingers free-flowing across the keys is a satellite to the muse. 'Tigerface', indeed, is the commitment to this idea; a record that rides the yes wave and in the process becomes a soundtrack for fellow travelers chasing the horizon ahead.
