    Slow Dazzle

    In 1975, mad scientist and Velvet Underground alum John Cale returned to the lab to record another experiment. Slow Dazzle, his fifth solo album and second collaboration with Roxy Music's Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera, dissects rock and avant-garde, hacks the limbs off of pop and jazz, and fuses the styles together into a limber, impassioned creation.


    Back on domestic vinyl for the first time in decades, this RTI-pressed edition of Slow Dazzle is cut at Mobile Fidelity by in-house engineer Krieg Wunderlich and features stunning sonics. Quiet surfaces, faithful artwork, and the opportunity to hear Cale's incisive fare unfold amidst wide soundstages and black backgrounds-not to mention the emotionally unsettling content within-make this Wax Cathedral LP a must for music aficionados.


    Sometimes jaunty and beer-soaked, sometimes maniacally spitting into the microphone about killing his wife's lover, sometimes despairing, sometimes sweet, Cale holds forth with schizophrenic authority. Manzanera's sordid guitar dirges ambidextrously switch to cheerful riffs as Eno's synthesizer rubber-bands its way through sunshine and smoke-machine fog. Chris Thomas, who recorded with the Beatles and engineered albums for Pink Floyd and the Sex Pistols, throws haunted violin and dissonant electric piano into the formula.


    Whether he's heaping neon sleaze atop earnest surf harmonies in an ode to the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson (Mr. Wilson), lulling you into a blurred, easy-listening trance (Ski Patrol, I'm Not the Loving Kind), or growling a pre-goth era cover of Elvis' Heartbreak Hotel" with mascara-running intensity, Cale delivers an elastic range of artistry. Ditties like "Dirty Ass Rock 'N' Roll" and "Guts" place psychopath tendencies into the body of a catchy pop song, turn up the electricity, twitch, and grab.


    By all means, Cale's experiment was a success. Slow Dazzle is alive.

    Ring

    Delicate Cutters return in 2012 with Ring, their third album overall and second for Skybucket Records.



    Not a revivalist outfit, not a gimmick band peddling an image as identity, Delicate Cutters are a band from the American South. Theirs is a music about the remarkable and mundane moments comprising a human existence. About the connective tissue found between them.



    For the follow-up to their heralded 2011 release Some Creatures, Delicate Cutters opted to forgo the home studio for the first time. Recording at Ol Elegante Studio under the guidance of Lester Nuby III (Verbena, Vulture Whale, Maria Taylor, Wooden Wand) Delicate Cutters have delivered their most focused and dynamic recordings to date.



    From the deep country haunt of Where the Cottonmouths Hung, the manic turn of Tilt-A-Whirl, to the slow burn of New Life and strung out revelations of Resurrection Fern, Delicate Cutters emerge as a band in full command of its voice and fearless in using it.

    Burnt Black Cars

    Saskatoon's Slow Down Molasses is a five-piece indie-rock collective described as "the Broken Social Scene of the
    prairies" by Exclaim! Magazine. Taking cues from the wide-open spaces of their home, they craft expansive, texture heavy pop songs that break into storm squalls of drone, delay and feedback. For new record 'Burnt Black Cars', they have turned to producer Jace Lasek (SUUNS, Besnard Lakes).

    Let's Face The Music And Dance

    This year Willie Nelson turns 80 years old, a milestone which has not slowed down the American icon in the slightest. Following the success of 2012's Heroes, which debuted at #18 on the album charts (his highest chart debut in over 20 years), Willie returns with another brand new album featuring a selection of songs that are near and dear to him and his band "The Family." Like the man himself, this stunning collection is not easily dened as a set genre or style. They include American standards and country classics, Irving Berlin and Carl Perkins, Django Reinhart as well as Willie-penned originals. Yet the result is a beautiful, cohesive set - songs about love and reection - in Willie's inimitable style. It is a record in the vein of both Stardust and RedHeaded Stranger and destined to become a classic.

    I'm Just Like You: Sly's Stone Flower 1969-70

    Compilation And Notes By Alec Palao


    An Exclusive New Interview With Sly Stone Himself


    In-depth Liner Notes With First-hand Reminiscences Of The Stone Flower Era From Many Of The Participants


    Features All Five Stone Flower Produced Singles Plus Ten Previously Unissued Cuts From The Label Archives


    All Tracks Newly Remastered From The Original Tapes


    In 1970, The Family Stone were at the peak of their popularity, but the maestro Sly Stone had already moved his head to a completely different space. The first evidence of Sly's musical about-turn was revealed by the small catalog of his new label, Stone Flower: a pioneering, peculiar, minimal electro-funk sound that unfolded over just four seven-inch singles. Stone Flower's releases were credited to their individual artists, but each had Sly's design and musicianship stamped into the grooves-and the words "Written by Sylvester Stewart/Produced and arranged by Sly Stone" on the sticker.


    Set up by Stone's manager David Kapralik with distribution by Atlantic Records, Stone Flower was, predictably, a family affair: the first release was by Little Sister, fronted by Stone's little sister Vaetta Stewart. It was short lived too-the imprint folded in 1971-but its influence was longer lasting. The sound Stone formulated while working on Stone Flower's output would shape the next phase in his own career as a recording artist: it was here he began experimenting with the brand new Maestro Rhythm King drum machine. In conjunction with languid, effected organ and guitar sounds and a distinctly lo-fi soundscape, Sly's productions for Stone Flower would inform the basis of his masterwork There's A Riot Goin' On.


    The first 45 came in February 1970: Little Sister's dancefloor-ready "You're The One" hit Number 22 in the charts-the label's highest showing. The follow-up, "Stanga, also by Little Sister, made the wah pedal the star. The third release came from 6IX, a six-piece multi-racial rock group whose sole release, a super-slow version of The Family Stone's "Dynamite, featured only the lead singer and harmonica player from the group. Joe Hicks was the final Stone Flower stablemate; his pulsing, electronic Life And Death In G&A" is one of the bleakest moments Sly Stone ever created on disc (Hicks' prior single for Scepter, "Home Sweet Home," the first released Stone Flower production, is also included).


    This long overdue compilation of Sly's Stone Flower era gathers each side of the five 45s plus ten previously unissued cuts from the label archives, all newly remastered from the original tapes. In these grooves you'll find the missing link between the rocky, soulful Sly Stone of Stand! and the dark, drum machine-punctuated, overdubbed sound of There's A Riot Going On. I'm Just Like You: Sly's Stone Flower 1969-70 opens up the mysteries of an obscure but monumental phase in Stone's career.

    Transmissions From The Satellite Heart

    1993's Transmissions From The Satellite Heart is the Flaming Lips' second release for Warner Bros. and first with guitarist Ronald Jones and drummer Steven Drozd. The band's transition from indie noisemakers to pop provocateurs was magnified tenfold here by the out of nowhere smash She Don't Use Jelly, which was not only their first charting radio hit but heavily rotated on MTV. No one trick pony, the ambitious 11-song set balances further pop fare like Turn It On and extended numbers like Moth In The Incubator and Slow Nerve Action, with an acoustic folk cut in Plastic Jesus, all with a post-modern style and grace.

    Above

    Pearl Jam + Alice In Chains + Screaming Trees = Mad Season. Includes 3 songs from mythical unfinished second album with NEWLY RECORDED vocals by Mark Lanegan.


    Previously unreleased instrumental Interlude, Remixed version of John Lennon cover I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier, 180 Gram, 2LP gatefold


    Think of the one-shot Seattle supergroup Mad Season as the grunge version of sober living. Guitarist Mike McCready, best known as the main six-string slinger in Pearl Jam, met bassist John Baker Saunders while in rehab, and the two paired with Screaming Trees' drummer Barrett Martin and Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, partially in hopes of steering the singer onto the path of the straight and narrow. Ultimately, the plan didn't pan out, but for a brief while, the quartet -- who adopted the name Mad Season -- did have their moment of clarity, captured on the 1995 album Above. There was a single issued to modern rock radio -- River of Deceit -- but this record downplayed easy hooks and melody in favor of churning introspection and slow vamps that occasionally flirt with blues (the never-ending 12-bar Artificial Red, balanced by the distorto riffs of I Don't Everything), but usually conjure nothing more than the dank sludge of Seattle. Mad Season aren't quite mired in the darkest areas of grunge -- they're clever enough to let a saxophonist lend color to Long Gone Day -- but the lack of melodicism is a bit of a drag over the long haul, turning Above into a bit of heavy mood music. In a sense, it's the id of Seattle run rampant: all the bands involved, outside of Saunders' Walkabouts and Martin's Trees (who were nevertheless considerably more popular than Saunders' group), enjoyed commercial success in 1995, so they could have gotten away with anything and, in a sense, they did, as a major-label actually released this turgid bit of soul-baring heavy rock. McCready gets plenty of room for his elliptical guitar, the players has space to dig into their minor-key vamps, Staley essays his only set of completely original lyrics, but the whole thing feels kind of inert and indulgent, which may be appropriate for a band treating rock & roll as therapy.

    Unchained Spirit

    Personnel includes: Buju Banton, Gramps, LMS, Beres Hammond, Luciano, Stephen Marley, Rancid, Wayne Wonder. Producers include: Donovan Germain, Mark Myrie, Tyrone Downie, Stephen Marsden, Tony Kelly. The once controversial Buju Banton, vilified for his anti-homosexual sentiments on his early single Boom Bye Bye and for his typically violent and slack dancehall, artistically turned the corner in 1995 with the release of the conscious and wistful Til Shiloh. The follow-up in 1998, Inna Heights, was equally spiritual and devoid of negativity. The third installment in this awakening is Unchained Spirit, released in September of 2000: a vital and rhythmic mix of homegrown Jamaican philosophy, biblical harmonizing, and just plain eerie dancehall. Banton sets the album off with a slow chant of Psalm 23, giving the album a spiritual center with which the rest radiates.

    MTV Unplugged, 2001

    R.E.M. Unplugged, 2001 shares the band's set for MTV's MTV Unplugged acoustic performance. The release highlighted the band's 2001 album Reveal.


    R.E.M. mark the point when post-punk turned into alternative rock. When their first single, Radio Free Europe, was released in 1981, it sparked a back-to-the-garage movement in the American underground. While there were a number of hardcore and punk bands in the U.S. during the early '80s, R.E.M. brought guitar pop back into the underground lexicon. Combining ringing guitar hooks with mumbled, cryptic lyrics and a D.I.Y. aesthetic borrowed from post-punk, the band simultaneously sounded traditional and modern. Throughout the '80s, they worked relentlessly, releasing records every year and touring constantly, playing both theaters and backwoods dives. Along the way, they inspired countless bands, from the legions of jangle pop groups in the mid-'80s to scores of alternative pop groups in the '90s, who admired their slow climb to stardom.

    Build With Erosion

    The Berg Sans Nipple are set to release their third album, Build With Erosion. After the critically lauded Along the Quai in 2007 they are poised to turn heads once again. Build With Erosion has been described as truly original and truly unique, a pretty incredible place, from dancehall to gamelan, from psyche/prog to minimal composition and electronics, from heart wrenching emotion to fun fun fun. The album dives into new sonic territory, with a vision of capturing the live impact of the duo on stage, which has often been the place that the band has fully broken through and captured audiences around the world.


    For Build With Erosion, The Berg Sans Nipple returned to work with Along the Quai producer Antoine Gaillet (M83, NTM, Zombie Zombie). After 6 years of the duo, Shane Aspegren and Lori Sean Berg, living and playing in Paris, this is the first album to be made with the members separated by the Atlantic, and has been all about the slow simmer of ideas.

    Antics

    The title of Interpol's second album, ANTICS, may conjure up images of carefree adventure, but anyone familiar with the New York City band's brooding post-punk sound knows that there's nothing lighthearted about their music. Although it's not a radical departure, ANTICS does reveal a broadening of the group's sonic palette. The opening track, Next Exit, is a slowly building, piano-laden anthem, marked by singer Paul Banks's remarkably widened vocal range and strangely hopeful lyrics. Clearly the group is eager to move beyond the endless Joy Division comparisons they previously garnered, and this bid works to wonderful effect. Of course, many of the elements that made their debut, TURN ON THE BRIGHT LIGHTS, so entrancing--soaring guitar riffs, tight bass lines, frenetic drumming--are still present, particularly on Narc and Slow Hands, but even these tracks aren't merely content to repeat past glories. A solid album that improves upon its predecessor, ANTICS sees Interpol shaking off the mixed blessing of being the Next Big Thing, and hitting a new creative stride.

    Losing

    While Bully's 2013 debut Feels Like tumbled headlong into the precarious nature of Alicia Bognanno's young adult life, its follow-up Losing is their first for Sub Pop (which in many ways feels like their spiritual home; Bully's sound is an outgrowth of the bands the label championed in the late '80s and '90s). Losing is a document of the complexity of growth: navigating breakups with sensitivity, learning not to flee from your troubles but to face them down no matter how messy they may be ("Well, this isn't the summer I wanted," she muses on "Blame," before admitting that she's trying to "cut down on booze and you"). Written as the group slowed down from touring constantly and Bognanno attempted to adjust to how different a home schedule is from a road schedule, her songwriting has matured from the quick one-two punches of Feels Like to tracks that contemplate the necessity of space in both song structure and emotion. Bognanno's gruff yet dynamic voice is allowed to bloom, and it has a tenderness and openness to it here that's new. There are multiple layers of wistfulness and care to her delivery of lines like "It just takes one disagreement for you to remember the one time I fucked up," from "Spiral," turning songs that could be one-dimensional kiss-offs into warm and complex expressions of regret.


    The group returned to Electrical Audio in Chicago, another home for Bognanno, to record Losing. Their core-Bognanno, guitarist Clayton Parker, and bassist Reece Lazarus-truly solidified during the process, a detail-oriented push for perfection in which each moving part was labored over and polished. Emily Lazar's mastering adds the perfect cap to Bognanno's engineering; this is a record that has both shimmer and heft. There's power in the guitar attack, delicacy and toughness in the melodic hooks, precision in the drums, and backbone in the bass.


    While Bognanno wouldn't call this a political record, she doesn't deny that the current political atmosphere and its urgency and tension haven't shaped some of her ideas on this record, too-though she does not want that to be its focus. Mostly, this is an internal record, a universalized diary, and an exorcism-not of any one specific demon, but of the host of them that characterize contemporary anxieties. Bully is growing up, sure, but their fire is in no way diminishing.

    The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

    Explosions in the Sky's second effort takes a more studied, even lush approach to the literate chaos of their 2001 debut. But put on your sad sack thinking cap now, because Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is a contemplative and heady rush of masterful melancholia. Its six songs are multi-minute, slow motion workouts of gentle electric guitar plucks and subtle/sudden washes of percussion ù they're still instrumental, but as lyrical as anything in the indie rock universe. 'Only Moment We Were Alone' turns on a simple, melancholy guitar figure, the drums shifting from insistent catch-up mode to a studied march built to introduce the next layered crescendo. Explosions in the Sky doesn't shift as suddenly or jarringly on Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place; the quartet has applied more structural predictability this time out, but is still quick about setting the sad butterflies in your stomach to fluttering. 'Memorial' is the album's meditative heart. It begins so quietly, reduced to brittle landscapes of tone. Lightly chiming guitars drift in, like the echoes of church bells off in narrow city streets. Then, like each of the album's movements, it surges forward in a rush, like the overtures of Sonic Youth separated, dried, and ultimately lengthened in the blistering Texas sun. The final blast of distortion and staccato drumming is Earth at full bittersweet bluster. 'Your Hand in Mine' ends things as they began, with a pair of determined guitars picking out a melody that's both pretty and pretty damn heartbreaking.

    Library Catalog Music Series: Music For Troubled Machinery

    What started out as a total bummer--musical sketches and ideas hindered by
    a conked out machine--actually turned into an album. What you are hearing
    on Music for Troubled Machinery is the slow and unruly death of Leb Laze's
    core production tool..the MPC 2000 (R.I.P). When this device begins to die
    it randomly freezes at any given moment, often times wiping out anything
    that has been created within its path. What is interesting though is when
    an MPC freezes it begins to uncontrollably spit out all of the sounds that
    are loaded within it in their raw and unedited form..over and over and
    over. This occurrence is like nothing I have ever heard. The machine
    begins to have a mind of its own.


    Leb Laze began to record and embrace these freakouts, using them as a
    basis for the majority of the songs on this album..adding to them,
    enhancing them and/or sculpting around them. Two shorter pieces,

    MTV Unplugged, 1991

    R.E.M. Unplugged, 1991 shares the band's set for MTV's MTV Unplugged acoustic performance. The release draws largely from 1991's Out of Time and five albums in total, as well as a cover of the Troggs' Love Is All Around.


    R.E.M. mark the point when post-punk turned into alternative rock. When their first single, Radio Free Europe, was released in 1981, it sparked a back-to-the-garage movement in the American underground. While there were a number of hardcore and punk bands in the U.S. during the early '80s, R.E.M. brought guitar pop back into the underground lexicon. Combining ringing guitar hooks with mumbled, cryptic lyrics and a D.I.Y. aesthetic borrowed from post-punk, the band simultaneously sounded traditional and modern. Throughout the '80s, they worked relentlessly, releasing records every year and touring constantly, playing both theaters and backwoods dives. Along the way, they inspired countless bands, from the legions of jangle pop groups in the mid-'80s to scores of alternative pop groups in the '90s, who admired their slow climb to stardom.

    Turkish Leather

    Detroit three piece Ritual Howls new album tells stories fit for Poe
    or Lovecraft. On their debut full length for felte, titled Turkish
    Leather, they incorporate a variety of styles into an ominously
    self-assured statement of intent, Ben Saginaw and Chris
    Samuels' sounds providing an imposing form for Paul Bancell's
    darkly alive lyrics to inhabit. Their influences range from English
    post-punk to Nick Cave to the industrial sounds of Skinny Puppy,
    and the band melds them expertly. Combining field recordings
    with electronics, this music is sound design turned pop.

    Many tracks here feel cinematic - whether it's the industrial
    clanging of "A Taste of You," which brings to mind a Lynchian bar
    scene, or the gothy synths of "Take Me Up," a slow burning track
    that escalates into full on melodrama. It's easy to imagine these
    twangy guitar lines gracing a scene in a Jarmusch film: their
    aesthetic owes as much to Tom Waits as it does Ennio
    Moriccone.


    Ritual Howls manages to take all these influences and come out
    sounding uniquely morbid, raw and unyielding - never derivative.
    It's a record that holds nothing back: the band announcing
    themselves to the world with all of the confidence of long time
    professionals. Their future audience will greet them with
    enthusiasm.

    40

    Foreigner will celebrate 40 years as one of rock's most popular and enduring acts with a new career-spanning compilation titled 40 that features 23 hits from 40 years recorded between 1977 and 2017.


    Following its self-titled debut in 1977, Foreigner went on to record some of rock's most enduring anthems - "Juke Box Hero" and "Hot Blooded" - as well as the #1 smash "I Want To Know What Love Is." The group has 10 multi-platinum albums to its credit and is one of the best-selling bands of all time, with worldwide sales in excess of 75 million.


    40 brings together the best songs from Foreigner's nine studio albums, including all 16 of its Top 30 hits: "Feels Like The First Time," "Cold As Ice," "Waiting For A Girl Like You" and more. The collection features "Too Late" from the group's 2008 retrospective No End In Sight and "The Flame Still Burns," the title track from a vinyl EP released just last year. All prior recordings have been remastered.


    The first LP covers Foreigner's first five albums: Foreigner (1977), Double Vision (1978), Head Games (1979), 4 (1981) and Agent Provocateur (1984). The 21 tracks include some the group's biggest hits ("Urgent" and "Feels Like The First Time") as well as deeper cuts like "Luanne." The second LP features songs from Inside Information (1987), Unusual Heat (1991), Mr. Moonlight (1994) and Can't Slow Down (2009), and features "Rain," "When It Comes to Love" and "Heart Turns To Stone."

    The David Bowie/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series Begins!


    David Bowie's 2002 Masterwork Album!


    Produced By David Bowie & Tony Visconti


    Mastered By Joe Reagoso - Pressed At R.T.I.


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Translucent Blue Vinyl & Tri-Fold Cover Presentation


    Featuring Pete Townsend, Dave Grohl Tony Levin, & Carlos Alomar


    David Bowie is truly a gift to rock music fans everywhere. There will
    never be another David Bowie, an artistic genius who has enthralled
    generations of aspiring musicians and music lovers the world over with
    the many fine recordings and concert tours he's created seamlessly for
    many years.


    Celebrating over four decades in the music business, this English
    native initially captivated millions of kids in the 70's with his Ziggy Stardust
    persona. He drove the rockers mad with his stellar concerts and dynamic
    presence on the stage. As David moved on and started venturing into other
    fields of music, film and art, he soon emerged as one of the early founders
    of alternative and ambient music with albums like Low and Heroes. At the
    turn of the millennium, Bowie scored a new legion of fans with more harder
    edged recordings like his 2002 multi-platinum masterwork Heathen.


    Heathen kicks things off with the hard rock guitar sounds on Sunday.
    This radio and fan favorite graced the alternative and college radio stations
    and helped bolster even further the rest of the Lp with follow up hits like
    the tour de force Slow Burn featuring the legendary Pete Townsend, and a
    stellar revisit of Neil Young's I've Been Waiting For You featuring the guitar
    work of Dave Grohl. All in all, a truly remarkable album which paved the
    way to a whole new level of fans as David Bowie continues to be a major
    force in the music of now and forever.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary David Bowie,
    as we've been releasing his fine recordings on our label. That is why
    we are so very proud to announce another first installment in The David
    Bowie/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his legendary
    masterpiece Heathen.


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (David Bowie/Jeff Beck/Deep
    Purple) for the first time on audiophile vinyl, David Bowie's Heathen will
    truly become one of the most important and historical 180 Gram Audiophile
    Vinyl titles in quite some time.


    To celebrate David Bowie's amazing career, we further enhance this
    limited anniversary edition with a stunning tri-fold cover featuring the
    original artwork elements as well as being pressed by R.T.I on translucent
    blue vinyl.

    Who Me?

    "In contrast to his shambolic band's [the Beets] crude punkish impressions, the man's solo material hews more acoustic and bare, showcasing his warm voice and knack for, yes, poetry, that feels beamed in from a halcyon era." - Spin


    Over ten years ago, a teenage Juan Wauters came to New York from Uruguay. Quickly after his arrival to the Big Apple, he turned to music to take control of the loneliness that came with his new surroundings. However, his isolation didn't last long though and, in the Queen's neighborhood Jackson Heights, he formed The Beets with new friends, garnering a reputation that allowed him to record three albums and tour the United States extensively. As the band began to slow down in 2012, Juan had more to say and he kept
    going on his own with his debut solo album, N.A.P. North American Poetry, released on Captured Tracks in 2014.


    Who Me? is the next chapter in the ongoing story of Juan Wauters. Whereas his debut solo record was recorded casually over the course of one year, his new album was crafted in under two weeks at Future Apple Tree in Rock Island, Illinois. Inspired by both the arrangements of Uruguayan songwriter Jaime Roos and the production of American master Dr. Dre, this collection of songs presents his continued approach to existential questioning through pop music. Tracks like "She Might Get Shot" and "I Was Well," which may seem like wisdom addressed to the listener, are in fact part of Juan's reciprocal process of self-actualization through songwriting and performing. Bringing new sounds to his repertoire, "This Is I" and "Through That Red" add a spiritual tone with ethereal string arrangements. Juan's voice - which has risen to the forefront of his music since his first recordings with The Beets - intensifies with added nuance. This year Juan Wauters will continue to tour the world in support of his second solo record.

    This box set includes some of the band's most acclaimed albums, new liner notes from David Fair and several new pieces of art from Jad Fair. All albums restored to their original track listings.


    Be careful. You can't unlearn information. I think that the best that you can hope for is a bad memory, but our brains are very remarkable and it is very difficult to actually unlearn something. I came upon this realization too late to help me with visual arts. I had already been taught about proportions and perspective. It's very hard to draw someone in the background larger than their friend in the foreground. Anyone farther away would look smaller. That is how our eyes see them and my brain knows this. I cannot turn off this knowledge and draw it the other way around. I can choose to ignore it, but that is not the same. That is a strategy for dealing with the situation, but not as freeing as simple ignorance would be. It is a nagging strategy that whispers the rules and acknowledges your participation in their breaking.


    Luckily, with music, I do not carry the burden of knowledge. I was not educated in its terms and rules. I am not bound by its limits.


    I know that I have guitar skills. I have played around with one enough to know what feels right to me. If I were to turn it upside down and attempt to play it in a left-handed manner, my ability would feel awkward and diminished. I am not unskilled; I am merely untrained. For me, this is the ideal situation. Others may prefer acquiring rules and limits. I prefer that my art be directed by my heart rather than my brain.


    I have played in bands for nearly 40 years. In all of that time I have only learned three chords. I have resisted acquiring more. If I continue at this rate I am at risk of knowing six chords forty years from now. Instead, I am consciously slowing down. Hopefully in four decades I will remember even less about music convention than I know today.


    Forty years is a long time to wait. In the meantime, here's Half Japanese Vol 2. It might get better in the future, but Vol 2 is here already.

    First New Album In 13 Years!


    Whenever one of the most celebrated and influential electronic artist, Richard D. James can compete with the music flip to influence built. The better part of a decagon, James Polygon Window, Caustic Window, GAK and maintain, including `Aphex Twin has unreleased music under several thousand monikers great pace.

Area of various musical score, James Analogue Booblebath EP was released in 1891, the results of the first series, he decided to record his gown music. Another influential London radio station piss FM's attention, and then label immediately signed him to their rooster, then post & poplieereRS. That same year, James Acid shithouse to promote the song and trying to lift Grant Wilson-CLARIDGE on a biscuit founded his label Rephlex Records. Selekted Flambient Works moving to London and Release 85-92: After a while, the two main points to be made, round the bend

    LYFE


    Weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic, Brooklyn's
    Glass Ghost offers dance-friendly art pop.
    - TIME OUT NEW YORK


    ...that irresistible, disjointed mix of pop hooks and
    Beefheartian abandon.
    -VILLAGE VOICE


    ...an affecting, gently aspirated bedtime piece...In
    tune and percussion it struck me as the nocturnal
    cousin to Merriweather Post Pavilion's Guys Eyes.
    - STEREOGUM


    ...a fractured bit of art-pop featuring...intoned
    falsetto over some spare production and airy beats.
    -PITCHFORK


    Since the release of their debut album Idol Omen in 2009, Glass Ghost's founding members Eliot
    Krimsky and Michael Johnson have kept busy. In addition to playing dozens of shows, including
    a tour with White Rabbits, Johnson joined Dirty Projectors as their new drummer, Krimsky has
    been collaborating with Here We Go Magic on keys, and the duo welcomed two new members to
    the group, Tyler Wood on keyboards and percussion, and Aerial East on vocals. Like their debut,
    LYFE was produced by Tyler Wood, who also produced Joan As Policewoman's 2014 album The
    Classic. For the LYFE recording sessions, the group recruited many of their friends to contribute, including Joan Wasser of Joan As Policewoman, Nat Baldwin of Dirty Projectors, and
    Christopher Tignor of Slow Six and Wires Under Tension. Pushing their songs to new levels by
    working with Brooklyn's musical elite is nothing new for Glass Ghost. They worked with more
    than a dozen of their friends from Brooklyn's music community, including Sharon Van Etten
    (who in 2011 noted "Eliot Krimsky is one of my favorite writers."), Here We Go Magic's Luke
    Temple, and Matt Iwanusa of Caveman, for their debut which was described by the New Yorker
    as "elegant compositions of frosted indie pop," and by Time Out New York as "weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic.


    On their new album LYFE, Krimsky (who's currently working on his M.A. in Media Studies at The
    New School, where he's exploring the convergence of technological mediation, identity and
    music) turns his observations of the absurd and mundane into metaphors about living in a
    world where every detail about your life is harvested, quantified, and used by marketing companies to manipulate your behavior. Rather than sounding didactic or overly intellectual, the
    songs provide windows into the band's internal world, as Krimsky's tender falsetto glides over
    the icy landscapes of synths, strings, woodwinds, and regal horns. As the product of Krimsky,
    Johnson, and Wood's mutual trust, vision, and relentless attention to every detail, LYFE masterfully blends airy, melancholy, and chilly atmospherics with Glass Ghost's irresistible bottom-heavy grooves and hooky pop sensibilities.
