    Something Else (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: August 3, 2018*


    Limited Edition Green Colored Vinyl


    "The quartet continues to showcase the distinctive Gaelic lilt of vocalist Dolores O'Riordan over chiming guitars, silken strings, and military rhythms." -TIME


    The Cranberries have an utterly distinctive sound, not least due to the instantly recognisable vocal of Dolores, which on this album is brought to the forefront due to its unplugged nature. As such, Something Else offers a fantastic opportunity for a reintroduction to the band, with some of their most familiar tracks being present on this selection of songs.

    Something Else!!!! The Music Of Ornette Coleman

    This 1958 debut recording by the Ornette Coleman Quintet, which featured Coleman on his trademark white plastic alto, Don Cherry on trumpet, Billy Higgins on drums, Walter Norris on piano, and Don Payne on bass, shook up the jazz world -- particularly those musicians and critics who had entered the hard bop era with such verve and were busy using the blues as a way of creating vast solo spaces inside tight and short melody lines. Something Else!!!! is anathema to that entire idea, and must have sounded like it came from outer space at the time. First, Coleman's interest was in pitch, not being in tune. His use of pitch could take him all over -- and outside of -- a composition, as it does on Invisible, which begins in D flat. The intervals are standard, but the melodic component of the tune -- despite its hard bop tempo -- is, for the most part, free. But what is most compelling is evident in abundance here and on the next two tunes, The Blessing and Jayne: a revitalization of the blues as it expressed itself in jazz. Coleman refurbished the blues framework, threaded it through his jazz without getting rid of its folk-like, simplistic milieu. In other words, the groove Coleman was getting here was a people's groove that only confounded intellectuals at the time. Coleman restored blues to their classic beginnings in African music and unhooked their harmonies. Whether the key was D flat, A, G, whatever, Coleman revisited the 17- and 25-bar blues. There are normal signatures, however, such as Chippie in F and in eight-bar form, and The Disguise is in D, but in a strange 13-bar form where the first and the last change places, altering the talking-like voice inherent in the melodic line. But the most important thing about Something Else! was that, in its angular, almost totally oppositional way, it swung and still does; like a finger-poppin' daddy on a Saturday night, this record swings from the rafters of the human heart with the most unusually gifted, emotional, and lyrical line since Bill Evans first hit the scene. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi

    Something Else (Awaiting Repress)

    After achieving his highest-charting release with 2011's All 6's And 7's (#4 Billboard), Strange Music general Tech N9ne tackles the most ambitious album of his career with Something Else. The Kansas City emcee kept fans busy in 2012 with the release of three consecutive Top 3 rap EP releases - KLUSTERFUK, E.B.A.H., and Boiling Point.


    With demand at a fever pitch, Tech N9ne aims to give listeners an untouched piece of his life while cementing his place among rap's elite.


    The beats sound nothing like anything you've ever heard me on, say Tech. The features that I'm going for are something you would never imagine. All I can say about it now is that it's a very human album. What I mean by that is that it's contradictory. On one song I say, 'The saint is ours', like we're in the saint's corner and then I have another song called 'I'm Not A Saint'. It's so beautiful because the King, the Clown, and the G are still present on this album.


    There are no apologies in what I'm saying. I don't mind that it contradicts itself because that's what people do. The album is everywhere. It feels like it's Hell, Purgatory and Heaven all over again. I'm telling stories that I've never told - that I was afraid to tell on some songs. It's super personal and I've got a big chip on my shoulder again. It's always been there, but it's getting bigger having to prove to fans and critics that we ain't going nowhere.


    Album Features: Kendrick Lamar, The Doors, B.O.B., Wiz Kalifah, Cee Lo Green, Serge (System Of The Down), Game, Danny Brown, Big K.R.I.T., Krizz Kaliko, Mayday and others.

    Something Else Again

    "Freedom." The very mention of the song conjures images of Richie Havens at Woodstock, fiercely strumming his guitar and lost in an improvisational moment of creation. An intensely engaging performer, Havens honed his craft in the clubs and cafes of Greenwich Village, just over the bridge from his native Brooklyn. Painter, poet and multi-instrumentalist, Havens immersed himself in the Village's beatnik culture just as the nascent folk scene began to develop. Connecting with uber-manager Albert Grossman, then guiding the careers of Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary, Havens rose to the top tier of the international folk movement.


    Signed to Verve Forecast, Havens released his first album, Mixed Bag, in August of 1967. The intriguing LP gathered songs from Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, Lennon/McCartney as well as two self-penned compositions and one co-written with future acting star Lou Gossett, Jr. The album's instrumentation featured Havens on sitar and acoustic guitar played in his unique style, thumb chording songs in open D tuning. Soaring above it all was his commanding baritone, a voice that injected gravitas into every song, bringing the lyrics to vivid life. A stunning debut, it climbed both the pop and jazz Billboard charts.


    Havens followed up a year later with Something Else Again:. The cover portrait found Havens clad in dashiki and wearing beads while playing a sitar, looking like a standard bearer for the counterculture. The songs' subject matter followed that direction as well, dealing primarily with social issues rather than relationships. It was another charting record for Havens, reaching #184 on Billboard's Pop Albums. More than mere albums, Mixed Bag and Something Else Again: were signposts for a rapidly changing culture, leading the way to a more enlightened existence.

    You Are Someone Else


    Fickle Friends' hugely anticipated debut album,'You Are Someone Else,' will be released via Interscope Records.


    Blessed with the same dedication to writing quirky anthems on their own terms as The 1975, the brittle icy synth flourishes of Chvrches and a new era indie pop IT girl in singer Natti Shiner, Fickle Friends have established themselves as the essential new British indie-pop band of 2018. They've played over 350 live shows together, been playlisted regularly on Radio 1 with an incredible string of singles including 'Brooklyn', 'Glue' and 'Hello Hello', headlined a sold-out London Forum - and all before announcing their debut album. Until now


    'You Are Someone Else' is an irresistible debut record, effortlessly capturing both the joy and uncertainty of growing up a 2017 millennial. Songs addressing social awkwardness, self-doubt, anxiety and the qualms of growing into young adulthood all through a prism of perfect timeless pop.


    Current single 'Hard To Be Myself' is an undeniably brilliant pop anthem for a pre-loading generation of wasted youth that flips lyrically from gloriously hedonistic abandon to naked self-analysis, while tracks such as 'Wake Me Up' addresses angsty obsession and the art of over-thinking. The album as a whole pivots around relationships and their tireless effects on the young mind, exploring the highs and lows of dating, falling in love and of course, breaking up.


    Fickle Friends are ultimately a great band with killer tunes who have worked hard at their trade and built a devoted fanbase the old fashioned way - playing as many shows as they could for as little cost, booking their own shows and writing songs on the road. Now, after huge festival shows at Reading and Leeds and a sold out Forum in London, things are slightly easier, but the dedication to writing undeniable songs and playing great gigs remains the same and they look set to dominate festival bills next year and play their debut album to the masses.


    On writing their debut album, Natti says, this album mostly talks about the feeling that you don't fit in your own life, forever craving something else. I felt like I was stuck in a perpetual nightmare of bad relationships and worry for so long and this collection of songs kinda pulled me out of that. We wrote and produced the bulk of everything between Jack's bedroom, the tour van and LA so it's been mostly DIY with an array of producers allowing us to get that extra 20%. We always wanted to make a record that made people dance and think at the same time. If any of these songs help anyone feel cool, or strong or even just less alone then we'll have achieved what we wanted.

    Here and Nowhere Else

    On their third full-length, Cleveland-bred outt Cloud Nothings give joy
    a hard, sharp edge. I was feeling pretty good about everything so I just
    made stuff that made me happy, says founding member and
    mild-mannered chief songwriter Dylan Baldi of Here and Nowhere Else.
    I had nothing to be angry about really so the approach was more
    positive and less 'fuck everything.' I just sat down and played until I
    found something that I like, because I was nally in a position to do
    that.


    Utilizing every possible opportunity to write while on the road for 18
    consecutive months following the release of 2012's Attack on Memory,
    Baldi presented an album's worth of new material to his bandmates with
    just days before they'd enter the studio with esteemed producer John
    Congleton. I'm pretty sure every song was written in a different
    country, he says. It's the product of only having a couple of minutes
    here and there. But Cloud Nothings would enjoy a full week with
    Congleton at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey, followed by three
    days of mixing at his own studio in Dallas shortly thereafter. The result is
    Cloud Nothings, rened: impossibly melodic, white-knuckle noise-rock
    that shimmers with sumptuous detail, from Baldi's lone, corkscrewing
    guitar to his dramatically improved singing to bassist TJ Duke's
    piledriving bass lines and drummer Jayson Gerycz's volcanic lls.


    It's more subtle, says Baldi. It's not just an in-your-face rock record.
    There's more going on. You can listen to a song 20 times and still hear
    different little things in there that you didn't notice before. Every time I
    listen I notice something that I didn't even realize we did.


    It's yet another staggering show of a progress from a songwriter and
    band still coming into their own.

    Visits

    Tammar pulls off a pretty incredible trick with each and every one of its post-punk anthems, probably something of which the band doesn't take much note. They mine the classic sounds of paranoia, malaise and misanthropy (Joy Division, The Velvet Underground, The Fall and early '90s alt-rock), and fill it all with so much exuberance and joy of playing that each song becomes a triumph over anxiety and ennui. Visits finds each of the band's members stepping outside of themselves, but not in a snake-poison-ingesting, flopping-on-the-floor sense. It's something else, something full of wonder.

    Holding Hands With Jamie

    Holding Hands with Jamie, Girl Band's debut album, comes a few years into their tenure; a few years after their first tour, nine days crammed into a Fiat Panda; a few years of stamping 7" sleeves to sell at merch tables and mail-order; a few years of writing songs and touring and developing a live ferocity unmatched by nearly anyone. Recorded in April 2015, two days after returning home from their first-ever US tour, the nine tracks making up Holding Hands with Jamie capture, more than any previous recordings, the tension and abrasive energy of a Girl Band performance. Recalling any number of things but for only milliseconds at a time, Girl Band make a mockery of comparisons, because you can only get as far as "oh this bit sounds like-" before a guitar scuff-screams, the bass crunches like a car in a bailing press, or something else visceral and glorious comes from the speakers, and the thought's erased.

    Don't Lose This

    In 1998, Roebuck "Pops" Staples recorded a final session, capping an
    illustrious career as leader and patriarch of the Staples Singers. Unfinished
    at the time of his passing in 2000, the tapes went to his daughter,
    Mavis, who then waited for the right opportunity to finish the recording
    in the spirit Pops intended. When she began her series of remarkable
    collaborations with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, starting with 2010's You Are Not
    Alone and continuing with 2013's One True Vine, Mavis knew she had
    found the person to work on her father's record. Mavis Staples: "I
    chose this title because these were the words my father said to me as
    he gave me the tape of his final recordings. He was sick and lying in
    bed and asked me to play the record for him in his room. After listening
    to it, he called me to his room again. He was weak, but he handed me
    the tape and in a soft voice said 'Don't lose this, Mavis.' While Pops'
    voice and guitar sounded so good on the original recordings [and remain
    untouched on this record], I knew the songs needed something else to
    really come to life. Something special. Pops deserved that. So I called
    on my dear friend Jeff Tweedy to fill out the tracks around Pops and he's
    helped to craft this beautiful album."

    Bad The John Boy (Awaiting Repress)

    On the heels of David Lynch's hugely successful sophomore full length, The Big Dream, comes a very limited edition 12, "Bad the John Boy." While technically this track qualifies as a non-album or bonus track, Dean Hurley, Lynch's producer had this to say about the song: "it wasn't really recorded with the lP in
    mind, but it was done around the end of last year when the bulk of the album
    was being made. It was earmarked for something else entirely, but that thing
    didn't happen in a way that required the song so up until now, it was 'a song
    with no home.' "


    Complimenting Lynch's left-of-center A-side, the B-side proudly features a
    Venetian Snares remix of the album's title track. Despite the fact that Canadian
    electronic musician Aaron Funk has been known for reinventing breakcore,
    with this remix he breathes a completely new approach into the song, turning it
    into something far from your typical dance remix. Hurley describes this track
    as, "music for the end crawl of a bootlegged sci-fi/horror film that you borrowed
    from your friend's older brother and caused you to realize for the first time that
    you were actually scared in broad daylight."

    White Mountain

    Having played in various bands including Swords of Chaos and in Jónsi's touring band, White Mountain is Úlfur Hansson's debut under his own name. With influences ranging from cult cinema, esoteric literature and contemporary music, Úlfur presents a unique twist on the supernatural. In his own words:


    Every track is a collage of field-recordings made while travelling. I met so many interesting people on the road (for instance, Alexandra of Mountain Man who did amazing vocals for So Very Strange) and I always carry my tape recorder with me like a camera. Some tracks are composed of beats made from my cousin throwing rocks into a pond out in the sticks in Iceland, converging with some birds I met in Chigaco. It makes this album extremely personal to me, remembering things like that and helps me achieve greater depth with the programming aspect of it. I guess i'm searching for a more
    living breathing sound for completely electronic music.


    The title is an homage to Rene Daumal's Mount Analogue, as well as Alejandro Jodorowski's film Holy Mountain, but also something else Each individual sound has a very special memory attached to it, so the album creates these nostalgic nonexistent spaces, hidden places - an amalgamation of instances, situations that couldn't possibly exist. I imagine this White Mountain, an invisible imaginary place - a sacred place on the horizon. Maybe like a connection to the the universe above. An analogy of the journey of Man.

    Too Bright


    "Hadreas unifies his lyrical and musical ambitions
    into the most forthright, ornate, lustrous and 'pop'
    moment of his career....sounds like triumph. "
    - Pitchfork on "Queen" BEST NEW TRACK


    "Mike Hadreas doesn't so much accept the crown
    as snatch it out from the air." - DIY


    "Immeasurably cathartic.... Perfume Genius has
    never sounded this furious and confident."
    - Stereogum


    Over the course of two astonishing albums, Perfume
    Genius, aka Seattle native Mike Hadreas, cemented
    his place as a singer-songwriter of rare frankness,
    creating songs that, while achingly emotional, offered
    empathy and hope, rather than any judgment or
    handwringing. Sparse, gorgeous and with Hadreas'
    quavering vocals often only accompanied by piano,
    they were uncommonly beautiful tales of a life lived
    on the dark side - scarred, brutalised, yet ultimately,
    slowly but surely reclaimed.


    Too Bright, however, is something else altogether.
    Less self-conscious, and less concerned with
    storytelling and easily-digested melodies, it is a
    brave, bold, unpredictably quixotic exploration
    of what Hadreas calls "an underlying rage that
    has slowly been growing since ten and has just
    begun to bubble up". Recorded with Adrian Utley
    of Portishead and featuring John Parish on several
    tracks, it is a stunning about-face which brings to
    mind audacious career-shift albums like Kate Bush's
    The Dreaming or Scott Walker's Tilt, records which
    walk the tightrope between pure songwriting and
    overt experimentation.

    I'm Not Afraid

    "When people hear John Mark Nelson's music for the first time, there'soften a sense of disbelief. With arrangements that recall the work of veteran songwriters, the 19-year-old Minnesota native has been recording
    sophisticated compositions since he was 14." - NPR, Jon Schober (2013)


    The past may be prologue, but for John Mark Nelson, the present is something else entirely: a gateway into a new era of life and the new sound that defines his upcoming album, I'm Not Afraid. Having released two critically lauded albums of melodic, lilting folk songs the ages of 17 and 19, Nelson, now 21, is set to take
    listeners on a leap forward into a new sonic landscape of propulsive rhythms and bright, complex instrumental arrangements. From the irresistible bounce and frustrated romance of the first single, "Dream Last Night," to the clap-along amble of "Broken" and the timeless, elegant sweep of "I Won't Win (If I Let You In)," I'm Not
    Afraid defies genre and demands attention. As a document of what Nelson calls "a very new, very different season of life," it positions him as one of the most exciting young songwriters and multi-instrumentalists
    of his generation.

    Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper

    Domino is pleased to announce the release of Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, the
    fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah
    Lennox.


    Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, has had a far-from-quiet few years with the release of his fourth solo
    record, 2011's Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007's universally-adored Person Pitch, each new
    Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later ("Doin'
    It Right," from 2013's Random Access Memories), that's more the case than ever.


    Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of Tomboy and unpacking
    his sonic toolbox again, rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing
    concoction he refers to as "the soup." Old school hip-hop textures and production techniques meld with
    the intuitive, cyclical melodies he has become known for a sound that is at once dense and playful.
    The album signifies a pivotal point for an artist who has proven he can continue to evolve while
    remaining at the top of his game. As Noah says, "It's sort of marking change - not necessarily an
    absolute death, but the ending of something, and hopefully the beginning of something else."

    The Babe Rainbow (Aus)

    Australia's The Babe Rainbow are happy to announce they have signed to 30th Century Records, the label spearheaded by Danger Mouse. The band are set to release their debut self-titled album.

    Recorded in magicland Byron Bay where the band is based, and produced by Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Babe Rainbow's first LP is a think piece, stories from the dreamtime, all the colors of the rainbow. As with the album's teaser track Losing Something (Is Finding Something Else) and Peace Blossom Boogy, expect timeless swirling sound and endless good vibes, cool cat vibes, and similar whirly-birding up and on.

    The seeds of The Babe Rainbow were sown when Jack Cool-Breeze and Angus Darling The Hothouse Flower started a song writing partnership in middle school, but the band didn't fully-bloom until late in 2015 when, travelling through France, the duo met Venezuelan pianist Lu-Lu-Felix Domingo and became a trio. The band has previously released a self-titled EP featuring the single Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest.

    b'lieve i'm goin down...

    Kurt Vile does his own myth making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air. Recorded and mixed in a number of locations, including Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, b'lieve I'm goin' down... is a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history ("valley of ashes") of woody honest strait forward talk guthrie , and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of singer songwriter upcycling. In Kurt's words, "I wanted to get back into the habit of writing a sad song on my couch, with nobody waiting on me. I really wanted it to sound like it's on my couch -- not in a lo-fi way, just more unguarded and vulnerable." It's a weird, accepting, mature record, acknowledging the inherent immaturity of being a person whether father, husband , partner, adult, musician, not perfect, but compelling for its understanding that's life though so sad to say - Kim Gordon

    The Ballads V

    Gatefold 2xLP + CD


    THE HISTORY OF ROCK IS FULL OF MISCONCEPTIONS. WE ALL HEARD THAT POPULAR ONE: ROCK MUSIC IS LOUD AND DANGEROUS, IT´S THE DEVIL'S
    MUSIC. BUT DOESN'T EVERYBODY KNOW AT LEAST ONE BEAUTIFUL SONG BY A ROCK BAND?


    Even if you are not attending the mighty School of Rock, you know one of those bloody emotional moments when the lead guitar sings its way through the solo and the
    chorus comes back while you are flying on the wings of heaven. Or something else. We all need a little bit of silence sometimes, just to stop from being part of this crazy
    world we live in.


    One of the finest moments on this ballad compilation is the new song "On The Edge Of Our Time", being one of the best ballads he's ever written to date. But the climax of
    "The Ballads V" is without a doubt the fascinating new song "Love's Holding On". Singer Johnny Gioeli is joined by Bonnie Tyler here!


    There are 9 more songs, of course, pretty much known from his previous albums (e.g. Neil Young' "Hey Hey My My " and Deep Purple' "Mistreated") which wraps up another
    classic, dynamic and high-quality Axel Rudi Pell album. As one fan from Israel said on Facebook: "If there was justice in the music business, your ballads would be as big
    as the Scorpions one."

    8-Page LP Lyric Booklet


    Minneapolis is known for many things - pretty lakes, the Mall of America, lutefisk. But 17 years ago, hip-hop act
    Atmosphere transformed the city into something else entirely: a nexus from which underground rap spiraled-out
    to the masses. And thanks to the duo's indefatigable touring habits, Top 20-charting albums, and their galvanizing artist-owned label Rhymesayers (MF Doom, Aesop Rock), they're still pushing the boundaries of what indie
    rap can mean.


    It's with that overachieving-underdog spirit that MC Sean "Slug" Daley and producer Anthony "Ant" Davis have
    named Atmosphere's eighth studio album Southsiders (out May 6), a shout-out to their native neighborhood.
    Because, says Slug, "We have spent the majority of our career - God, we can call it a career! - repping the
    south side of Minneapolis pretty hard."


    While Southsiders is a celebration of the group's fortitude, it is also a deeply introspective, and sometimes
    conflicted, work. "It's a natural progression from the last record, The Family Sign, which was about growing my
    family," says Slug, now a father to three, who finds himself contemplating mortality. "I'm starting to think, 'What is
    post-family man? What am I supposed to rap about now?' I'm sticking to my roots, rapping about what I'm
    doing, what I think about. This record is - much like the other ones - a very detailed look at my life."


    The album captures everything from a blazing, anthemic takedown in "Southsiders," to the ebb-and-flow of loss
    in the sauntering "Arthur's Song," to emotional abandon in the rousing "Kanye West." The latter - and its
    mantra, "put your hands in the air like you really do care" - is a high-five to the rapper whose emotional
    reactions are often misperceived as not caring. Says Slug, "I wanted to write a song about loving something so
    much that you submit to the moment.

    The Recognitions

    While many couples can trace the real-time rise and fall of their
    relationship back to social media feeds and harried phone calls,
    Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church have channeled the highs
    and lows of their storybook courtship into something else
    entirely: the explosive, discomforting confessionals of
    Exitmusic. The mercurial project started the year they got
    married (2004) and all-but-imploded during their recent divorce,
    but not before the duo wrapped its most fully realized collection
    of beautifully damaged music yet titled The Recognitions.


    It wasn't easy, though, for the band has always had to balance
    its writing and recording sessions with Palladino's career as an
    actress in such acclaimed television shows as Halt and Catch
    Fire, The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Storytelling and Before
    the Devil Knows You're Dead.


    Our relationship finally cracked when Aleksa took a break from
    recording to work on a film in Iowa, explains Church. It takes
    place on a lake so deep, indigenous people believed it had no
    bottom, and was a portal to the spirit world. When Aleksa
    returned from shooting, I could tell immediately something
    major had shifted. She described an experience of standing up
    in a boat on the lake and seeing her reflection in the water, and
    having the realization that we had only been living on the
    surface of life-that there were fathomless depths to be
    explored if we were able to set each other free.


    That feeling makes itself known right from the very beginning of
    The Recognitions, as Crawl abruptly shifts from a sinister-butsubdued
    intro-think: Beach House re-scoring Suspiria-to a
    full-on exorcism, a fearless, fang-baring fight for one's life that
    leaves a trail of blood, sweat, and tears behind. Things slow
    down slightly amid the quivering strings, bold shuffleboard
    beats, and minor-key melodies of Iowa, but there's no
    denying what a wildly expressive diary entry this album is by its
    end. That goes for everything from the bittersweet piano
    balladry of The Distance to the queasy rhythms and delirious
    hooks of Criminal.

    Rest In Chaos

    Let me explain what it's like to summarize Rest in Chaos. What you have here is, in the first place, the book of Genesis as deftly reconceived by Todd Snider who has been inhabited by a spirit resembling Philip K. Dick. The rest of the Hard Working Americans are under the direction (or perhaps in the thrall) of an older wiser Jimi Hendrix and a Frank Zappa no less exacting than he was when he departed. It is rock'n'roll music, past, present and future, and that's no dream, it's just a fact. There are moments here when the walls of Babel might be falling, there are moments when they are reinvented and every time you try to pin it down, it shows you something else. "Half Ass Moses," the third song, ends by declaring "The song wasn't all that complicated."


    Like hell it isn't. When, in the very next song, "Dope is Dope," Todd Snider is a voice more inflammatory and gritty than I have ever heard from him before, "His mother didn't understand him / Whose mother ever does?" am I supposed to laugh, cry, applaud or beg for mercy. All that's really sure is, you're not leaving 'til the show's over. Even if you want to. There's nowhere else to go, and even if there were, the music's too good.


    So much for metaphysics. The actual physics of the thing is seven billion people out for what they only think is a stroll, armed with nothing more than some quite treacherous Roman candles Rest in Chaos might, if these Hard Working Americans were scientists of something other than sound, be the story of the entropy of the universe, and if you think I'm kidding that's only because you haven't taken the deep dive into its complexity, which if not quantum is at least a quandary. Albums aren't this good anymore; they're not this ambitious; their parts are not so finely conceived, the risks they take are not so reckless, the ways they resolve contradictions are not so elegant. Most of all they don't kick you in the preconceptions anywhere near so often. (How did they manage to create harmonies in "Something Else" that recall both the Hollies and the Mothers of Invention?)


    Todd's songs sound like he swiped part of them from Billy Joe Shaver and part from Tim Buckley and welded them together with spare parts from Iggy and Paul McCartney. There's a nightmare embedded here, and what cares the weight of it, the aspect of doom and the hint of doom is Dave Schools' bass. Neal Casal, who might be the most under-rated guitarist in rock, is constantly making the chaos more beautiful than you'd think possible. The roots of the sound are in the jam bands and Americana groups and singer-songwriter sessions the band members have played in but when they get to "Throwing Goats" (OK, maybe I should have said Thomas Pynchon or John Barth rather than Dick) and "Something Else" (both parts), they've joined the ranks of the rockers who no longer look for interstellar overdrive, because they've already found it.


    All this is, of course, metaphor. Well, most of it. Some of it. The part about how strong it is, how smart, how completely the product of the past ("stand up for your brother, stick it to the man") and how anticipatory of one of the best futures anyone has shown us is straight up. It's one of the most well-sustained albums I've heard in years, and what it sustains is not only my faith in rock'n'roll or even how hard the Hard Working Americans really do work to make their magic, but how much it means to them, which is the only way it can mean very much to the rest of us.


    Let me put it this way: I've heard Rest in Chaos any number of times and there's no way I'm done with it. I can tell you about its surface but I haven't gotten to the bottom of it. I'm not really sure there is one. It is humbling to confront it, and reassuring to know that there is all the rest of our lives for that. "The High Price of Inspiration"? A bargain.

    Near To The Wild Heart Of Life

    JAPANDROIDS is a two-piece band from Vancouver, BC., which began in 2006 and consists of Brian King and David Prowse. JAPANDROIDS are one guitar, one set of drums, and two vocalizers. JAPANDROIDS are maximal in their delivery; a two- piece band sounding like a five-piece band.


    With the release of their second album, Celebration Rock in 2012 the band embarked on what seemed like an endless world tour, performing over 200 shows in over 40 countries, and played their final show in support of Celebration Rock in Buenos Aires, Argentina in November 2013. They would not perform live again for three years.


    Their third album, Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, was written clandestinely throughout 2014 and 2015 in Vancouver, Toronto, New Orleans, and Mexico City. It was (mostly) recorded at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, BC (Fall of 2015), with one song, "True Love And A Free Life Of Free Will," recorded at Golden Ratio in Montreal, QC (February, 2015). The title, Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, comes from a passage in the novel A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man by James Joyce: "He was alone. He was unheeded, happy, and near to the wild heart of life."


    Like their prior albums Post-Nothing and Celebration Rock, the album is 8 songs. This is because 8 songs is the standard template for a great rock n roll album. Like Post-Nothing and Celebration Rock, the album was sequenced specifically for the LP. On Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, side A (songs 1-4) and side B (songs 5-7) each follow their own loose narrative. Taken together as one, they form an even looser narrative, with the final song on side B (song 8) acting as an epilogue.


    If Celebration Rock was the culmination of something, then Near To The Wild Heart Of Life can be considered the beginning of something else.
