Description:

William Ryan Fritch fans that have come late to the party are in luck: two of the folkloric contemporary classical composer's previous exclusives to subscribers of his 12-album Leave Me series are now available to those that missed them initially.

Both are from Fritch's extensive collection of music written for film, and contain some of his most distinct cues, which in album form are fleshed out into comprehensive pieces that stand on their own when absorbed in isolation from their visual catalysts.

As is the case with much of his music, The Sum of its Parts is constructed from organic instrument sources, relying on strings, French horn, prepared piano and vibraphone to convey a beautiful mix of swooning melodies sitting atop structures of cyclical, calculated repetition. It's a compelling, rousing listen whether or not you realize how cleverly the music supports the film's theme of integrating robotics into everyday life.

Old Believers has been extensively reworked since its initial release, most notably with the addition of eight new pieces. In contrast to Parts, Believers is comprised of a longer sequence of shorter cues which skew to the plaintive and wistful side, using delicate finger-picked acoustic guitar and slowly bowed, melancholy strings to support Fritch's always soul-stirring, magnificently fluid lead work on whatever assemblage of wood and wires he's coaxing to his purpose.

It's a rare quality to be able to produce such an immense volume of material that is so consistently rewarding and devoid of filler. With every piece of his musical puzzle uncovered, Fritch's tremendous body of work grows ever more unique and impressive in its impassioned construction and ever-expanding scope. (Lost Tribe Sound)

Description:

Athens, Georgia post-punk solar sisters & brothers return with their 5th album.. a double. SST & 4ad meets White Album.

A 75-minute double-vinyl masterpiece, PCP Presents Alice In Wonderland Jr, the fifth album from Athens, Georgia's Tunabunny, is the most creatively ambitious album in this most creatively ambitious band's history. Featuring singles like 'Incinerate,' 'The Rest of Us,' and 'Nevermind the Cobblestones,' the band takes their experimental rock into a place that is both stranger and more accessible than anything they've done before. It's ferocious, passionate, smart. political, desperate, feminist, and alive. Every song is important; every song goes someplace the others don't. There are no accidents; there is no filler. 28 songs structured as a song-by-song response to The Beatles' White Album (there's even an experimental track called 'Revolution None'), on PCPPAIWJR, Tunabunny prove they can do anything. Songs about surveillance, songs about futility; songs about alchemy & winter, metamorphosis & anger. Side Four features a twisting song cycle about motherhood--from pregnancy to birth, to postpartum emotional desolation, to the rebirth of self. PCPPAIWJR creates a universe of sound. As our access to music expands, as its history sits at our fingertips, this is the future of music--a glorious eclecticism that results in something original and urgently now. You can hear echoes of T Rex, Slits, Electrelane, Chills, Human League, John Cage, John Cale, GBV, Beefheart, Ono, Eno, Fine Young Cannibals, Fleetwood Mac, Luc Ferrari, Bananarama, ? and the Mysterians, Smiths, Syd Barrett, Sun Ra, and on, and on.

Description:

(8/10) Jim Matheo's creativity and inspiration doesn't seem to know any restrictions. It feels like writing new songs is a natural gift of the guitar virtuoso. Not only that he is one of the main pillars when it comes to prog metal legend Fates Warning, also his contribution to e.g. the O.S.I. project and others underlines the importance of the American guitarist when it comes to rock and metal.

This time it's another solo project initiated by him that will delight fans of progressive rock music. Matheos, who also did all the bass parts on the album, teamed-up with drummer Lloyd Hanney to create this beautiful release. "Drift", that's the name of the longplayer, is an instrumental album, with two exceptions. "Vortex Street" as well as "Westerlies" include some vocal parts done in a perfect way by Anna Lynne Williams. What you shouldn't expect in this context is lyrics telling a story. Williams' vocals are more treated as an additional instrument that adds to the totality of these two soulful songs. Next to her there's another guest who was invited to contribute to the album. Two songs include keyboard parts of no less than Kevin Moore, well-known from e.g. his times with Dream Theater.

Tuesday The Sky's debut contains tracks being build on musical perfection without losing heart and soul. In general I'm not the biggest fan of instrumental albums since very often the capabilities of the ones involved are in focus. What suffers sometimes is the joy of a song being in the spotlight. Tuesday The Sky did manage to bridge this gap. Matheos' guitar enchants musicians and non-musicians in the same way. He gives each of the ten tracks an identity that catches the listener from the first note played up to the end of the album. The feel that's involved should be experienced by listening to the album with earphones on and eyes closed. This gives you the entire width and depth which is embedded in songs like "It Comes in Waves" and "Drift".

Jim Matheos releases with "Drift" an album that is more than just a nice extra to bridge the waiting time until a new Fates Warning album will hit the shelves of the record shops. This longplayer is well-executed cornerstone in progressive rock music, an instrumental album you should have listened to.

Format: FLAC (tracks)

Description:

In April 2017, Smith and his new quartet went into the studio to record his first acoustic quartet album since 2005. Entitled 'Embodying the Light', the album will mark Smith's 50th birthday and the 50th anniversary of the death of one of his greatest inspirations, John Coltrane.

It features Coltrane compositions including "Naima", "Dear Lord" and "Resolution" and music associated with Coltrane alongside Smith compositions written in homage to Coltrane.

The group features Smith alongside one of the UK's leading young piano talents, Peter Johnstone, a former Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year and winner, with the group Square One, of the 2015 Peter Whittingham Jazz Prize. Bassist Calum Gourlay is a young veteran of gigs with Sheila Jordan, Scott Hamilton and The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, and Sebastiaan de Krom has been the drumming powerhouse behind Herbie Hancock and Jamie Cullum.

Smith has been a presence on the world jazz scene since his teenage years. At the age of nineteen he was touring internationally with Gary Burton's Whiz Kids quintet and three years later he signed to the legendary jazz label Blue Note. He has since gone on to establish and direct the internationally acclaimed Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and he regularly tours the world with Norwegian bass master Arild Andersen's trio, widely regarded as one of the premier groups working in jazz today.

Description:

Melbourne scratchy pop favourites the Stevens return with their second album Good. 18 short songs, alternately frenetic or laconic, packed with twists and hooks that merge lo-fi outsider songcraft with 70s prog wizardry and classic rock swagger. The Stevens formed in 2011 around guitarists Alex Macfarlane (Twerps, Tyrannamen) and Travis MacDonald, and were soon joined by bassist Gus Lord (Twerps, Boomgates, Tyrannamen) and drummer Matt Harkin. Chapter released their debut album A History Of Hygiene in late 2014. The album was written up by Pitchfork and The Guardian, reviewed by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts and played on BBC6. The Stevens toured the US in 2015, playing Gonerfest on the back of killer single Thirsty Eye. In Australia they have played with Wire, Parquet Courts, Real Estate and others. The Stevens recorded Good in Melbourne bedrooms/jam rooms throughout 2016, and once again employed the services of New Zealand mastering engineer Tex Houston, veteran of a thousand Flying Nun releases. Alex and Gus from The Stevens have spent the last couple of years as the newest members of Twerps, with Alex drumming on their 2015 album Range Anxiety, and Gus joining on bass a short time later.

Format: FLAC (tracks)
Quality: lossless
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

The very name the Dustbowl Revival conjures images of the Great Depression -- not just the prairies ravaged by drought, but the country and folk that were made during the '30s. The Los Angeles group chose their name for a reason and perhaps it made sense on their earliest records, particularly 2015's With a Lampshade On, but this 2017 eponymous album finds the octet wildly expanding their purview, adding a heavy dose of soul and funk that enlivens the band. The shift is evident from the get-go, when the record kicks off with the rowdy "Call My Name," a high-octane groover where the horns are pushed to the front. Throughout the album, the Dustbowl Revival return to this retro-soul sound -- "Good Egg" is as propulsive as the best Motown, "The Story" is an excellent hybrid of Philly and Memphis soul, "Gonna Fix You" bops along to its effervescent horns -- but the record is cannily structured as two complementary halves. Once the new sound is established, the group starts threading in elements of jazz -- "Debtors' Prison" is a plaintive little folk song where the horns are coloring, not the feature; "Got Over" is its heart-tugging flip -- and this is where the Dustbowl Revival wind up feeling like something new. Like a lot of Americana bands, the Dustbowl Revival are magpies taking their favorite bits from the past, but few other acts are rooted in string bands and swing, let alone sharp enough to tie this era to the soul of the '60s. It's a fresh and exciting record, a celebration of spirit and soul.

Description:

Sounds Of Crenshaw Volume 1 is produced by Terrace Martin. As a producer and musician, Terrace Martin understands the pieces of history that MATTER. And he knows the true value of Crenshaw and Slauson in his own evolution and its importance to the world. On Volume 1, he brings together some of The Pollyseeds and distills the seemingly disparate pieces of that history into an instantly recognizable sound. 'That West Coast Vibe' is eminent. A great luthier once said 'It's simple, I just take a piece of wood and cut away everything that isn't a guitar'. The Pollyseeds have done just that. Sounds Of Crenshaw Volume 1 is that record that trims the celebrity and the excess, and makes a very clear and simple statement with the sound. Let us hope that whatever gets built on Crenshaw carries the history forward with as much integrity and beauty as The Pollyseeds.
