    Last November, Jack White's Third Man and John Fahey's Revenant issued The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records, Volume One (1917-27), the first installment of the curious tale of America's most important record label. It was called spectacular (New York Times), unprecedented (Rolling Stone), breathtaking (Boing Boing), a cabinet of wonder, indeed (Pitchfork), and the most perfectly realized attempt to combine music and documentation (Fretboard Journal) and damnedest musical objet d'art (Nashville Scene) folks had ever seen.


    Third Man-Revenant now presents the final volume in the Paramount story - The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records, Volume Two (1928-32).


    As Volume Two begins, Paramount is entitled to a breather - in the previous 5 years it's been home to giants like King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Alberta Hunter, Blind Blake, Ethel Waters, Ma Rainey, Papa Charlie Jackson, Eubie Blake, Fletcher Henderson, Big Bill Broonzy, Roosevelt Sykes, James P. Johnson, Jaybird Coleman, Clarence Williams, and Fats Waller.


    But just as it seems the label might be losing steam, it begins a second act that threatens to dwarf its first. In its final 5 year push from 1928-32, Paramount embarks on a furious run for the ages, birthing the entire genre of Mississippi Delta blues and issuing some of the most coveted recordings in the history of wax - a staggering playlist including Skip James, Charley Patton, Son House, Tommy Johnson, Blind Roosevelt Graves, Willie Brown, King Solomon Hill, Tampa Red, Georgia Tom Dorsey, Little Brother Montgomery, Lottie Kimbrough, Rube Lacy, Meade Lux Lewis, Buddy Boy Hawkins, Ramblin' Thomas, Jaydee Short, George Bullet Williams, Cow Cow Davenport, Clifford Gibson, Ishman Bracey, Charlie Spand, Jabo Williams, Louise Johnson, Blind Joe Taggart, Geeshie Wiley & Elvie Thomas, and The Mississippi Sheiks.


    Paramount simply killed. But more than that, it changed how this country thought of itself. It was the first and most comprehensive chronicler of what America really sounded like in the 1920s and '30s - on its street corners, at its fish fries and country suppers, in its nightclubs and dance halls and showtents. In the process, Paramount - not some preservationist-minded enterprise like the Library of Congress - inadvertently created the most significant repository of this young nation's greatest art form.

    6 LPs feature tracks from the collection.


    USB Drive contains 800 digital tracks by 175 artists across the Paramount family of labels.

    Bones

    Described as a call to action, a document of personal and collective uprising, 'Bones' is Son Lux's fourth album since producer-composer Ryan Lott started working under the name in 2007. Having recently evolved into a three-piece with guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, 'Bones' comes after what you might typically describe as a whirlwind couple of years that have seen Lott work with Lorde, Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Busdriver and more.

    Lanterns

    Equal parts producer and composer, Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) bridges an unusual
    gap between old-world music theory and next-level experimentation. Meditative
    but heaving with energy, "Lanterns" nds a peculiar congruency between
    futuristic soul and ancient sentiment. Driving orchestral electronica (Lost It To
    Trying, No Crimes) is placed alongside creepy minimalism (Pyre), often starkly
    juxtaposing densely layered arrangements with Lott's fragile voice.


    In recent past Son Lux has gained notoriety both for his s/s/s project (with
    Sufjan Stevens and Serengeti), and from being named NPR's "Best New Artist of
    the Year". His third full-length album, and his rst for Joyful Noise (Kishi Bashi,
    Sebadoh, etc.), positions Son Lux at the helm of an impressive ensemble of
    instrumentalists and singers, including Chris Thile (The Punch Brothers), Peter
    Silberman (The Antlers), DM Stith, Lily & Madeleine, Darren King (Mutemath),
    Ieva Berberian (Gem Club) and yMusic (Dirty Projectors, Bon Iver).

    Beak & Claw (Discontinued)

    Comes with a digital download card! Stranger things have happened, but rarely do they make such beautiful music. The three esses that comprise the enigmatically titled s / s / s are as follows: Sufjan Stevens, he of the Fifty States Project and various baroque folk-pop opuses; Serengeti, the wry-witted rapper known for in-depth on-record character studies; and Son Lux, silken-voiced singer, studio wizard and singular beatsmith. The project's roots reach back to 2009's Dark Was the Night compilation, where Stevens and Geti met over a Buck 65 remix of a song written by psych-folkie Castanets. Continuing in the spirit of (unlikely) collaboration, the pair passed beats and raps back and forth, eventually enlisting Son Lux to dream Beak and Claw into fruition.


    While this momentous EP comprises a mere four songs, each covers an immense stretch of sonic territory and emotional range. At six minutes, "Museum Day" may be the most adventurous and also the most satisfying, opening with a swath of AutoTuned heartache courtesy of Stevens, cresting with the darkly detailed raps of Geti, and closing in a hail of crashing cymbals, orchestral glitch and haunted coos from Son Lux. "Beyond Any Doubt" exchanges that taut splendor for deeper grooves whose farthest-out moments bring to mind Shabazz Palaces' cracked futurisms, albeit spiked with a falsetto'd pop hook. Fuzzy bass and industrial clang crash into lines about unrealized escapism and unpaid bills. Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond lends "If This Is Real" its Andrews Sister-like chorus, an immaculate contrast to the aural chaos that eventually overtakes the song. Meanwhile, Doseone (Subtle, Themselves) lends a similar buoyancy to "Octomom," an electrospackled, mostly spoken piece that plays like a Laurie Anderson track for the reality television generation (also featuring jaw harp and harmonica by Ohio folk vet Hal Walker). Because of its subject matter, this final song goes a long way to illustrating Beak and Claw's strange magic and, ultimately, why s / s / s works at all. Geti's humor and humanity are matched by playfulness and poignancy every step of the way. In the end, sublime confluence prevails.

    Sisyphus


    "Take the romantic stings and catchy choruses from the Illinois era,
    throw in some crazed electronic percussion, melted synths, rapped verses,
    and autotuned vocals, and stir." - Beats Per Minute


    Sisyphus is the new name for the collaboration between Serengeti, Son Lux, and
    Sufjan Stevens (formally s/s/s), whose new project under this moniker is a
    self-titled album partly inspired by the art of Jim Hodges, and commissioned by
    the Walker Art Center and The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music
    series in Minneapolis/Saint Paul.

    Aromanticism

    Written in Montreal, Los Angeles, Asheville, Topanga, Laguna, Big Bear, coastal Nicaragua, and on a sleepy ship traversing the Pacific ocean, making Aromanticism was a 3-year adventure into the parts of the self that society encourages us to silence for the sake of our sanity.

    The album title was chosen before any of its songs were written. The not-yet-in-the-dictionary definition of an aromantic is simply someone who doesn't completely feel romantic attraction. I'm just trying to get it out from over the red squiggly line.

    Aromanticism features performances and production contributions from Matt Otto (Majical Cloudz), Thundercat, Joshua Willing Halpern, Paris Strother (KING), Miguel Atwood Ferguson,Rob Moose, Ian Chang (Son Lux), Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders), Nicole Miglis(Hundred Waters), Ludwig Görannson, Cam Obi, and more. All of the lyrics and vocal arrangements were written by me. Genre is shirked while choir-inspired vocal layering is employed in order to explore the multiplicities that are contained within a single person.

    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
