the best reason to listen to a ron sexsmith album is always his songs, and >blue boy< – his 4th album, produced by steve earle- offers 14 pieces of evidence that this man ranks among the most gifted singer/songwriters working today. balancing a youthful charm with a strikingly mature perspective, sexsmith sings about the stuff of ordinary people -life, love, and fate - with a perceptive intelligence, emotional depth, and subtle and compassionate wit thats truly one of a kind. anyone who has heard his work knows that ron sexsmith is a superb songwriter. after his latest album >long player late bloomer< (movlp262) we thought this release would make a nice addition to our catalog.

now its time for gallaghers first two albums to get fully remastered and pressed on audiophile 180-grams vinyl. rory gallagher released his eponymous solo debut album in 1971. this album marked the departure from taste, the first band which gallagher founded, and the start of his solo career. gallagher wrote all the songs himself and recorded the album with two befriended belfast musicians.
>deuce< is gallaghers second solo album and was originally released in 1971 as well. in contrast with his previous well-produced album, >deuce< was an effort by to capture the energy of a live performance. in order to do so gallagher would often record immediately before or after live performances while keeping production at a minimum.

the mary onettes return with >love forever< produced by dan lissvik. gone are the echoing reverbs reverbs, the 80s guitars and the big, splashing drums. instead, the new ep is a wonder of genre-blurring fearlessness drawing on ambient textures, avant-garde rhythms and intricate arrangements. a delicately beautiful collection of songs.

endlich als vinyl erhältlich! mit >done so wrong< liefern die flying eyes ihren 2. longplayer ab. das junge quartett aus baltimore (usa) hat seinen sound weiterentwickelt und an der intensität gefeilt. die 10 eigenkompositionen sind nun um einiges düsterer, hypnotischer und druckvoller, heavy psychedelic blues rock mit 70er wurzeln aber dennoch zeitlos - mit einflüssen von black sabbath über danzig bis black keys.
from the 1970s, people in the caribbean coast of colombia, became captivated by a host of african rhythms. records brought in by merchant sailors from africa, became the new craze, with local sound systems, becoming the main driving force behind the popularity of african music in the region. record labels, seeing an opportunity to capitalize on this new phenomenon, began hiring local bands and creating new lineups to cover and re-adapt these african styles into spanish
toby leeming aka the third man returns with his 3rd ep for art - and what a belter it is. maintaining the high quality of previous releases >future tense< and >more than one< both aim for the dancefloor whilst retaining the melodic and harmonic sophistication that made tangier (art-dds4) and messier 66 (art-dds2) such sought-after tracks. another buy-on-sight release from art
here we have a new label and its some of the best techy drum and bass we have heard for a while. counterstrike and cooh do what they do best and bring their trademark tight production along with a load of bass that will rumble any bass bin. looking forward to hearing what else this exciting label has up its sleeve.
re-release! melodies and words are in faccinis bones and his finely crafted songs resonate with traces of his ancestry. if his songs were maps they would stretch from the english moors to the saharan dunes via the parched plains of the mediterrannean before spanning the atlantic ocean all the way to the mississippi delta. for piers, recording albums means surrounding himself with old friends, people he can talk music with, true accomplices, fellow souls who share a common vision. a soulful and expressive singer/songwriter whose music fuses folk, acoustic blues, and west african textures.
double 12 inch vinyl plus cd-copy of the full album.
years of research into the bio-electric output of the human brain have now been harnessed with the creation of a device that allows man to monitor and interface with anothers brain using a box that appears to be no more complicated than a guitar effects pedal! batohs experiements with this machine are only part of the album, the other tracks utilize traditional japanese ritual melodies and instrumentation to form a prayer/requiem for the victims of the great east japan earthquake. a deep and soothing album that intends to bring the potential for inner peace to all who listen to their brain. we highly recommend headphone listening on this album
von vielen fachmagazinen bereits jetzt als einer der newcomer des jahres gehandelt! lernen sie the jezabels kennen: ein quartett aus sydney, eine band voll glühender emotionen, zwingender refrains und engagierter ambitionen. so, wie sie echte stadion-chöre mit makabrer nonchalance verbinden, erinnert ihre musik sowohl an die bittersüße lieblichkeit von fleetwood mac als auch an den gotischen romantizismus einer kate bush oder die straffe intensität von the temper trap. von diesen qualitäten berichteten bisher drei eps die sich allesamt (ohne promo!) in den deutschen itunes charts platzieren konnten. wie der albumtitel bereits vermuten lässt, findet man hier nicht gerade das übliche superfröhliche sommerpop-gejauchze, das man für gewöhnlich von einem aussie-act erwarten würde. wenn the jezabels überhaupt etwas eindeutiges sind, dann eine gehaltvolle gegenreaktion auf alles zu leichtfertig dahin jubilierende.

12" Vinyl lp D02.03.12
nach zwei >funky fräuleins<-compilations (2009 und 2011) ist es zeit für die >beat fräuleins<. wir gehen zurück in die tiefen 60er-jahre, als der beat in die unschuldige welt des deutschen schlagers drang. als die rhythmen heißer und die texte frecher wurden, als das schlagzeug lauter und die gitarre verzerrter wurde. >beat fräuleins< versammelt 19 highlights aus dieser zeit, u. a. marion maerz (das beat-fräulein mit dem beat-fräulein-track), caterina valente (als feministin), inga rumpf, conny froboess, die sich von ihrem teenager-image befreit, und wencke myhre, die orchestral schmachtet.

>the something rain< is tindersticks ninth studio album and like its predecessors >the hungry saw< and >falling down a mountain< it projects a bold spirit, something charged with what uncut described as a restored self-belief, again loving doing what they do and doing it better than anyone else. though within >the something rain< there is something else, the band, the ideas are formed - it touches what it is reaching for.
