DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR (REMASTERED 20TH ANNIVERSARY)(2LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK15.05.18
back in 90s san francisco scott, gavin and robbie hardkiss helped pioneer the american underground scene with their club nights, warehouse parties and groundbreaking record label. they forged a new direction for dance music with a string of vinyl releases by hawke, god within, little wing and rabbit in the moon, culminating in the seminal compilation delusions of grandeur released in 1995. delusions of grandeur made the billboard dance charts, went to no.1 on the rolling stone alternative album chart and launched the international dj/production careers of the hardkiss brothers. in 2018 to celebrate the 20th anniversary, the album was remastered and re-released with this new vinyl.
indianizer was born in 2013, springing from the minds of psychonauts drawing inspiration from animal collective s wild frenzies and django django s tropical rhythms. following two self-produced eps (-pandas-, 2013 and -jungle beatnik-, 2014), their first full-length -neon hawaii- (edison box/pbp, 2015) was released in 2015. thanks to this debut album, chosen as one of the top 50 records of the year by noisey, the band toured italy and europe. -zenith- is the second full-length produced by the band together with edison box, musica altra and bordello a parigi which will be out on the 27th of march 2018: -a psychedelic texture, ancestral, made possible by vortical bass lines and cosmic patterns. an extraterrestrial cumbia in essence- (rolling stone).
this is a great sophomore effort by this scottish outfit. the singer has a unique semi-quavering voice with a melodramatic quality that suits the music and would equally suit him on stage in a musical. some songs are aggressive but with a dark hue. opening cut -a leaving song- finds sutherland carving his way through jangly and buzzing guitars set to a skittery beat with a touch of the theatrical. closing is -home-, a forlorn ballad with sutherland delicately pleading -please let me come home-, elegiac and sweet.
the procedure club is a collaborative -bedroom-pop- project founded by andrea and polish emigré adam malec in new haven, connecticut in 2008. the two began recording as a natural progression from their boredom with living in poverty in new haven, sharing musical tastes in shoegaze and pop bands of the 80s and 90s, such as black tambourine, and the jesus and mary chain, as well as a common admiration for baroque artists such as purcell and bach. out of this god-forsaken alliance comes procedure club, in which adam and andrea have combined melodic song structures with heavily reverbed vocals, stuttering mechanical drum beats, dirty bass, synths, and alternately washed-out and jangly guitars.

this may look like just another lp, but in reality, it s a journey. i always made electronic music, but sometimes i wanted to get a musical point across that a synthesizer couldn t reach: the human touch, the perfection of imperfections, atonal experiments, the euphoria of the slightly out-of-tune fuzz guitar. so 7 years ago, my friend weytkin and me started a guitar combo to see what we could do with our collection of guitars and vintage equipment. the only machine i was 100% familiar with was the drummer: my trusty roland tr-808.- – ruud lekx (rude 66, jagdstaffel 66, lekx).
aufgenommen wurde universal high im sommer 2016 in den maze studios in atlanta, wobei niemand geringerer als der legendõre ben h allen (gnarls barkley, animal collective, deerhunter) in die produzentenrolle schl³pfte und mit bandleader ben romans-hopscraft eine kreative allianz formte. man k÷nnte -universal high- durchaus als eine wiedergeburt sehen: es setzt sich fast bis zur unkenntlichkeit vom dub-geladenen psychedelic-indie ihres deb³ts ab. der neue sound ist dagegen viel mehr geprõgt von den stra?en des s³dens, auf denen er entstand, vermischt mit dem 70 s soul von the isley brothers, curtis mayfield und shuggie otis.
oraculo records looks to the past in very few occasions and monomen deserves to be one of the exceptions. the norvegian band momonen released back in 2007 one of the best electronic post-punk albums of the beginning of xxi centurty on trust me records, not only for the music quality but because all the band members had only 19 years old at the time. suddenly the band gets dissolved after only 1 ep and 1 album. now, 10 years later, oraculo records proudly recovers the best tracks of their album (+1 one of the previous ep) on a record that will be very searched and valued. all tracks mastered and remastered specially for vinyl by eric van wonterghem at prodam studio (berlin).
an original copy of the brasileira lp by brazilian singer maria rita stumpf has been on top of collectors and music lovers wishlist for the past couple of years, since cântico brasileiro no 3 (kamaiura)- broke out and cast a spell worldwide – from japan to brazil, from norway to south africa, everybody was flabbergasted after they first heard the song, and each and every time they heard it again. for the lucky ones that could listen to her whole album – and get to know other gems such as lamento africano/rictus and a cidade it is clear that it is an ouvre that more people should have access to, not only an elite of listeners and connaisseurs. the good news are that the lp will be available again in its entirety in a new, glossy, loud and clear pressing released through selva discos, a new label run by augusto olivani and millos kaiser (the dj/production duo known as selvagem) in partnership with jd twitch s optimo music. it s a legit reissue overviewed by maria rita stumpf herself, the music being remastered from the remaining dat tape of the original release and artwork faithfully updated by brazilian design studio colletivo, featuring liner notes by the singer/songwriter.

the 6-track *swim mountain ep* was self-recorded and produced by multi-instrumentalist tom skyrme half in los angeles, half in london and features the widely-blogged *dream it real*. the ep is a psych-pop collage of sounds fusing 60s studio ethics and modern production techniques. drawing influences from the harmony-heavy songwriters of the 60s and 70s (argent & blunsonte, rundgren, nillson and the wilson brothers) and the bossa nova chord progressions of brazilians tom jobim and joao gilberto. having been composed and recorded between the juxtaposing environments of rainy london streets and the sunny beaches of la, this accomplished debut has a a genuinely unique sound that is truly striking for a debut record.

corbu are an electronic, indie-rock band from brooklyn, new york spearheaded by producer and multi-instrumentalist jonathan graves. corbu are jonathan, todd hoellerman (drums, keys), amanda scott (synths, percussion), julian ferraldo (guitar, keys) and brian murphy (bass, keys). named after french architect le corbusier, the band has a strong creative aesthetic. graves writes the music from visual ideas, which he translates into sound. corbu songs are often heard partially or entirely in dreams, and are influenced by films, physical spaces and a childhood love of nature and science fiction. and it works. corbus music is beautifully crafted, taking the listener on a journey from day to night, through exhilarating sunsoaked sonic landscapes to land softly on the surface of the moon. jonathan began singing and playing different instruments at age nine, and eventually fell in love with samplers and their ability to bend conventional sounds into something abstract and new.

for nearly a decade, tycho has been known as the musical alias of scott hansen, but with the release of awake – his second lp for ghostly international – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. relating closer to post-rock than ambient soundscapes, the record is situated in the present, sounding more like hansen than drawing from his influences. this is, in many ways, the first true tycho record.

audiolith - musical luckybag with a masterplan. ten years from now, back in 2003 the label started as musical one-man-show without any kind of business plan. a decade has passed since then and audiolith grew into a proper company with two associates, employees, office, online mailorder store and not less than 200 releases under its belt. but still some things never change, especially when it comes to release politics. no matter what ever style comes in whenever the boss likes it there will be a release. no compromise, no fear of failure that is what audiolith is all about and lars lewerenz is, has been and stays the musically approving authority, no matter if we talk electropunk, drum n bass, indie or punkrock, hiphop, trap, deep. emotin-driven house or electropop. his widely varied taste is the reason why audiolith still remains fresh and surprising a musical luckybag, but one with a masterplan. now the year is 2013 and audiolith is still loved by many - and hated by some for giving away golden gifts to fans instead of waiting for presents itself.

*foundation* is the new ep from especially good, the most exciting band from detroit in recent memory. the eight track ep showcases the trios dynamic energy of julio dominguezs vocals, joe flis synthesizers and drum programing and paul kirys bass - culminating in songs that are equally raw, brutal and honest. the sound of e.g. exists in a space of its own, but one can hear influences of throbbing gristle, factory records and detroit techno in the rhythms and sonic textures throughout *foundation*. recorded and mixed in detroit by sam consiglio and adam lee miller (of adult). released on est. 83 records
after a 12 inch for the souterrain transmissions label and a split lp with ducktails on no fun productions, dracula lewis delivers his long-awaited debut full length u$e your illu$ion$, a title which evokes an imaginary deviant glamour which is synonymous with the teasing nature and sense of mystery which is a part of dracula lewis world. working with an abundance of pop based ideas with an abstract mentality, the record brings to mind, in manner and tone, hallucinatory avant strategies that were typical of the second wave of industrial.

mit silver wilkinson liefert der britische elektronikproduzent bibio sein meisterwerk ab. auf 11 bezaubernden tracks verschmelzt er electropop und indiefolk zu einem pastellfarbenen, auralen gemälde voller sinnlichkeit und schönheit. während die ehrwürdige times von off-kilter-popsongs spricht, die wie nichts anderes klingen, beschreibt das britische musikmagazin the fly das album als kaleidoskopische landschaft aus vernebelten, elektronischen tangenten und diesig-komplexem alternative-pop, als den verstand herrlich betörende kollektion. symptomatisch dabei ist der kernsong des albums a tout a l heure, der mit seiner deutlichen popstruktur auch vorab als single erscheint und wie ein amalgam aus mgmt, boards of canada, pink floyd und jose gonzalez klingt.
the latest emotional response release provides something very special indeed, in the form of a new track from under the radar psychedelic rock musician nick nicely. nicely has been making music from the 70s onwards, but his music has recently undergone something of a critical reappraisal, with the likes of robert wyatt and robyn hitchcock supposedly inspired by his work, wrottersley road provides the ideal entry into his music, a masterful piece of shoegaze pop filled with fuzzed out guitars and eastern psychedelic tones. remixes are provided by invisible hands, who provide a minimal 80s inspired electro-pop version, which comes saturated in radiophonic textures, and the oscillation, who take the track into even more abstract ambient territory than the original, deep into a place where time seems to stand still entirely, drawing its rich textures out into infinity.
