  • Alan Parker – The Sound Of Soul

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1621946 Als Alan Parker 1976 die Killer-Bibliothek Soul-Funk-LP 'The Voice of Soul' mit der Session-Sängerin Madeline Bell aufnahm, entschied sich ein kleiner Funke bei Themes, auch alle Backing-Tracks als separate und ebenso harmlose Titel-LP 'The Sound of Soul' zu veröffentlichen. Gott sei Dank für diese hellen Funken. Die Originalbeschreibung der LP, die als Sammlung von "unaufdringlichen musikalischen Backings in verschiedenen Rhythmen" veröffentlicht wurde, erklärt trocken: "Diese Tracks sind ohne Melodie erschienen und eignen sich daher besonders für den Einsatz hinter Kommentaren. Weibliche Gesangsversionen dieser Tracks werden auf TIM 1021 The Voice Of Soul ausgegeben und es ist möglich, von Gesangsversion zu Instrumentalversion oder umgekehrt zu bearbeiten, wenn Kommentare oder Szenenwechsel auftreten". Madeline Bell wurde von The Rhythm Section unterstützt, die im Grunde genommen die The The Themes International Music House Band waren. Was wir hier also haben, ist ein ganzes Album von instrumentalen Workouts einer Band, die sich aus den gewaltigen Talenten von Alan Hawkshaw am Keyboard, Alan Parker an der Gitarre, Barry Morgan am Schlagzeug, Les Hurdle am Bass und Frank Ricotti an der Perkussion zusammensetzt. Ohne Bells Gesang erhalten diese Backing-Tracks den nötigen Raum zum Atmen. Jeder von ihnen steht mehr als allein auf. The Sound of Soul ist ein echtes Baggervergnügen und, wenig überraschend, ein unverzichtbares Gegenstück zu The Voice of Soul. Wie bei allen zehn Neuausgaben stammt der Ton für The Sound of Soul von den originalen analogen Bändern und wurde von Be With regular Simon Francis für Vinyl remastered. Mit der gleichen Sorgfalt haben wir auch bei den Ärmeln gehandelt und die Reproduktionsaufgaben an Richard Robinson übergeben, den heutigen Verwalter der Markenidentität von KPM.

    Be With has worked with the hallowed KPM to re-issue ten of our favourites from across the KPM 1000 Series and the Themes International Music catalogue, currently under KPM stewardship.

    Whether it’s killer soul-funk, sweet jazz-samba, skuzzed-up guitars or accidental Balearic beauty, these records include some of the most innovative work from some of the most talented composers and musicians of the 20th century.

    These records were never readily available, being originally released as a ready-made, affordable alternative to commissioning music for television and radio. Consequentially the originals have been unobtainable for decades by all but the most dedicated collectors.

    The audio for all ten re-issues comes from the original analogue tapes and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. We’ve taken the same care with the sleeves, handing the reproduction duties over to Richard Robinson, the current custodian of KPM’s brand identity. And don’t worry! Those KPM stickers aren’t stuck directly on the sleeves!

    But we didn’t just get a bit giddy and find ourselves re-issuing classic work from Alan Parker, Alan Hawkshaw, Brian Bennett, Nick Ingman, James Clarke, Francis Coppieters, Keith Mansfield, David Snell and John Fiddy. In the middle of the project KPM also asked Be With to be responsible for the vinyl version of Full Circle, an entire LP of new material from Alan Hawkshaw and Brian Bennett. Who were we to refuse.

    So that makes eleven records in total, all released on the 16th of November, and available for pre-order ordering now... Erhältlich ab 23.11.2018 Getaggt mit:
  • A Certain Ratio – Mind Made Up

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1619454 A Certain Ratio stammen aus Manchester. Sie wurden von dem New Order Manager Rob Gretton 1979 entdeckt und bei dem legendären Label Factory unter Vertrag genommen. In dem Spielfilm “24 Hour Party People“ bringt es Factory-Label-Manager Tony Wilson auf diesen Nenner: “having all the energy of Joy Division but better clothes”. Jedenfalls sollten A Certain Ratio später weitere Acts wie Quando Quango und Swing Out Sister hervorgehen. Dennoch existiert die Band bis zum heutigen Tag. Ihr Post-Punk Sound ist weniger puristisch angelegt als der ihrer Zeitgenossen, öffneten sich A Certain Ratio doch auch Genres wie Dub, Disco, Funk und Soul.

    „Mind Made Up“ ist das neunte Studioalbum von A Certain Ratio und stammt aus dem Jahre 2008. Nur ihrer eigenen Klangästhetik verpflichtet, besticht dieses Album abermals mit ihrem ureigenen „Punk-Funk“. Erhältlich ab 27.07.2018

    Epic Belgian 3 piece BRUTUS can today announce details of their hugely anticipated forthcoming 2nd album 'Nest', set for release on March 29th  through Hassle Records in Europe and through Sargent House in the ROTW.

    To describe the last two years as a whirlwind for BRUTUS is something of an understatement. Having signed to Hassle Records, 2017 saw the release of their debut album, Burst , which set them on a path of award nominations and ‘album of the year’ accolades, as well as picking up huge fans from Lars Ulrich of Metallica to Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro . In the last 12 or so months, they have toured with Sargent House label mates Chelsea Wolfe and Russian Circles, BRUTUS

Taking time out from the live circuit, the trio headed to Vancouver to record their second alb um, once again returning to Jesse Gander ( Japandroids, White Lung, Baptists ) at his Rain City Recorders studio in September 2018. The resulting 11 tracks form BRUTUS ’s new album, 'Nest'. By their own admission, the formative sound of the band was shaped b y their physical limitations, drummer Stefanie Mannaerts adopted vocal duties initially out of necessity. Having fully embraced her role as both vocalist and drummer, the full range of Stefanie’s multiple talents is showcased on 'Nest'. The abrasive urgenc y of her emotive vocals is mirrored in the tribalistic drumming, just as tender whispers echo the gentle roll of percussion elsewhere. Co - conspirators Stijn Vanhoegaerden (guitar) and Peter Mulders (bass) complete the magic circle with pervasive riffs, dyn amic bass lines, and a fine balance between uneasy restraint and unrepentant aggression. BRUTUS throws a net over post - rock, hardcore, metal and pop, gathering defining facets of each into their unique sound.

It’s a timeline of invincibility and doubt, of taking risks and letting go, a chronology of what the y are and what they’ve done. Bound by a thread that was intangible to others, their shared experiences, both good and bad, 'Nest' is the sound of a band who know how to use the strength of their bond to full effect, to use every part of themselves as an additional tool for conveying their message: take care of those in your own nest. BRUTUS find their places of comfort to be very different to the ones previously held dear, the nest they started out with is not quite the same one as they stand in today.

  • Matmos – Plastic Anniversary (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1623269 The incomparable duo, Matmos, have done it again! Their new album, Plastic Anniversary, was created using only plastic. Highlighting the crises of convenience, the Duo make music from our refuse. True to form, the band have assembled a promiscuous array of examples of this sturdy-yet-ersatz family of materials: Dominos, Styrofoam coolers, police riot shields, polyethylene waste containers, PVC panpipes, pinpricks of bubble wrap, pills, silicone gel breast implants and most horrifically synthetic human fat. Where did this idea come from? Drew Daniels and M.C, Schmidts own “plastic” anniversary as a couple. Matmos glide from the tongue-in-cheek fun of “Breaking Bread” (literally smashing Bread LPs) to Cronenbergian body-horror of “Interior with Billiard Balls & Synthetic Fat.” The album is playful and poppy while conveying a very serious message and on the darker implications of ignoring the havoc we are imposing on the earth all for the sake of convienience. A super special limited edition set will come with a sculptural album, embedded with plastic bottles, that while is the actual album, is rendered viruatlly unplayable by the pastic floating within. This edition also includes the album on a exclusive multi color mashup vinyl, a t-shirt, and a bonus track, all exclusive to the box. All proceeds from this special edition will benefit The Ocean Cleanup

    The sounds on Plastic Anniversary were solely derived from plastic objects.

  • Nick Waterhouse – Nick Waterhouse (180g LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1623099 Nick Waterhouse grew up in a coastal town near Long Beach, CA. It was a serene setting: the ocean stretching out for miles to the North and South, manicured lawns, two-story homes, long swathes of concrete highway, fast food chains and mega malls. He was there for two decades. Then, he left. He found a home in his early 20s in San Francisco, working at record stores alongside a collective of likeminded young crate-diggers and 45 collectors. And then he started making his own records: “Time’s All Gone” in 2012, “Holly” in 2014, and “Never Twice” in 2016. These were evocative albums, steeped in a perfectionism and clarity of vision that informed every choice, from the studios to the players, the arrangements to the album art. Everything, deliberately designed and purposeful, bubbling over with power and feeling. And as those records rolled out into the world, Waterhouse found a dedicated audience of his own as well as a bevy of influential champions and collaborators, including garage-rock mystic Ty Segall, retro-futurist R&B bandleader Leon Bridges and the LA-based quartet Allah-Las, whose first two albums he meticulously produced and played on. There is a “Waterhouse Sound” and it comes from both the man and the method — recording everything on magnetic tape, through analog equipment, and playing live (!), eyeball to eyeball, whenever possible. Now, he’s finished his fourth album. He’s calling it “Nick Waterhouse.” And whether intentional or not, it is perhaps his most reflective — and reflexive — album, employing all of the mature production techniques learned throughout his professional career while retaining a viscous edge that allows it to land with colossal impact — more raw, heavy and overtly confrontational than anything he’s made before. “Nick Waterhouse” was recorded at the finest working studio in Los Angeles, Electro Vox Recorders, and co-produced by Paul Butler (The Bees, Michael Kiwanuka, Devendra Banhart), the master of all things warm, rich and wooly. Nick’s songs here are personal, but personal in the way that “Please Mr. Postman,” “What’s Going On” and “Cathy’s Clown” are — intimate, direct, yet still malleable enough for listeners to suffuse their own life stories into the mix. The album is thick with talented players, including Andres Rentaria, Paula Henderson and the staggering, howling saxophone of Mando Dorame. All of the new Waterhouse songs sound big. Brawny and muscular. The lyrics are suspicious, outraged and, at times, very vulnerable (muscle is just flesh, after all). Waterhouse uses an economy of words to deliver complex, coded messages. He offers up equal parts criticism of the time we live in and innate human flaws. He paints relationships under the cover of darkness, slashing through neo-noir fantasies that are romantic, blood-spattered and bracingly aware of the powerlessness felt among people, amid the rapid onslaught of commercialism and technological progress. And, as has become his signature, he throws in a tune written by a close friend. On this record, he covers “I Feel an Urge Coming On” in tribute to the song’s author, Nick’s own mentor and collaborator Joshie Jo Armstead, who wrote music with Ray Charles and sang as both an Ikette and Raelette in the ’60s and ’70s. He’s four albums in, but it makes sense that this specific record is the one that takes his name. You can really here Nick on this one. Not just the band. Not just the songs. Not just the sound. HIM. You can hear his mind at work. His passion. His focus. More importantly, you can feel it.

  • Juleah – Desert Skies (LP+CD)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1623133 Am Anfang war der Hall. Und das Rauschen. Wellenberge im Bodenseee türmen sich auf - ein Beben verursacht durch sechs Saiten. Eine Stimme als Eintrittskarte für eine Strong-Mädels-WG, in der Mazzy Star und P.J. Harvey abhängen. Mit ihrem dritten Album "Desert Skies" beweist die Vorarlbergerin Julia Hummer - aka Juleah - nicht nur, dass sie auf internationaler Ebene in Sachen Sound- und Songwriting bestens mithält. Sondern auch, dass sie in ihrem ganz eigenen Musikuniversum munter die Grenzen verlegt. Erkundeten die EP "Entangled and Entwined" und der Longplayer "Melt Inside The Sun" die Trampolinlandschaft hypnotisch wirbelnder Sounds der 60er-Psychedelic und die klangexperimentellen Teppiche des Britpops à la Ride oder Stone Roses, so sind die Songs auf "Desert Skies" genauso köstliche Magic Mushrooms - und doch slightly anders: much morefunky! Von "Skies" bis zu "Darkness"- die Platte ist im Groove daheim, der Rhythmus perlt und stampft, am Horizont ahnt man fettes Slide aus der Küche des Chicago Blues. "Strawberry Shake" marschiert übermütig wie Michel aus Lönneberga auf der Suche nach dem nächsten Opfer für einen Streich. Ufos rauschen taumelnd vorbei, landen auf Supermärkten, um ihre Vorräte an Gelatine und Smarties aufzufrischen. Lässiges Stop'n'Go, knackige Licks, rumpelige Drums ... in "Catch 22" dampft im Intro kurz die Erinnerung an den Mördergroove von Kantes "Summe der einzelnen Teile" auf, bevor der Song zu einer Dronehymne mutiert. Juleah packt uns eine Wundertüte zusammen, auf 33 1/3 Umdrehungen.

  • Harriet Brown – Mall Of Fortune

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1623003 Sultry r&b solo artist Harriet Brown is back with a new batch of fully-realized future funk, a slow-burning dispatch from a dayglo dance floor. The Los Angeles by-way-of-the Bay artist honed his musical chops in church, the birthplace of so many soulful sirens. His first project, New Era EP came out in 2014, setting off a firestorm of critical and fan adulation. Who was this bowl cut rocking, falsetto dropping, shiny suit man?
    He followed up with a bombastic debut album, Contact, an expertly crafted, extraterrestrial soul rumination on the ways we fail to connect, restart, and try again. It was also a transitional album. Made between the Bay and LA, it’s about the electricity of new connections, the distance of old friends.
    Mall of Fortune is his second full-length album, an airtight meditation on anxiety, paranoia and indecisiveness – decision paralysis and the free-flowing guilt that follows. The bowl cut is gone, but the shine is intact.

    Pull Quotes:
    - Pioneer of romantic funk - *The FADER*
    - It's funk music for a new generation, for all of us worried about saving the world while having a good time - *LA Weekly*
    - Harriet Brown should be seen live. He's a luminous avant-garde beacon. The sounds are plush, the visuals are wavy, it's little goofy, elevating, funny. - *i-D Mag*

  • Larry Jon Wilson – New Beginnings

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1622322 Larry Jon Wilson kam zu spät zur Party. Als er in Nashville ankam, hatte der Country-Soul-Pionier Tony Joe White bereits sechs Alben veröffentlicht. Townes Van Zandt hatte sieben, Mickey Newbury acht gemacht. Kristofferson, der akzeptierte Hohepriester des Neuen Nashville, hatte fünf gemacht. Er begann erst im Alter von 30 Jahren mit dem Gitarrespielen, aber fünf Jahre später veröffentlichte er sein Debüt, 'New Beginnings' (1975) und folgte ihm nur ein Jahr später mit 'Let Me Sing My Song To You', beide auf Monument Records. Eine Offenbarung unter den Hipstern und Kritikern von Nashville, die dafür sorgte, dass Larry Jon sofort als Teil der Mitte der 70er Jahre beginnenden "Outlaw Country Movement" aufgenommen wurde.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Larry Jon Wilson came to the party late. When he arrived in Nashville, country soul pioneer Tony Joe White had already made six albums. Townes Van Zandt had made seven, Mickey Newbury eight. Kristofferson, the accepted High Priest of the New Nashville, had made five. Larry Jon, by the time he arrived, had spent ten years in corporate America.

    He did not start playing guitar until the age of 30, but five years later he released his debut, New Beginnings (1975) and followed it just a year later with Let Me Sing My Song To You, both on Monument Records. A revelation among the hipsters and critics of Nashville, the LPs ensured Larry Jon was immediately embraced as part of the mid-70s “outlaw country movement” that eschewed slick production in favour of a raw, gritty approach. When a film crew came to document this burgeoning sound, they made straight for Larry Jon's door. The legendary Heartworn Highways (1981) featured his mesmerising performance of “Ohoopee River Bottomland”, a boogaloo funk monster.

    He was a singer and writer of intensely private, painfully moving tales of southern life. With his deep, papa-bear voice, funky southern groove, and richly evocative narratives of rural Georgia, Larry Jon was a unique stylist but his gutsy, greasy sound did not translate into sales. Too funky for the country crowd, too heartfelt for pop radio, he fell between the cracks. We hope the long-overdue reissue of his first two albums will go some way to rectifying this. Indeed, both New Beginnings and Let Me Sing My Song to You - so similar they play like two halves of a double album – showcase his unique mix of country, folk, soul and swampy blues.

    Driven by a crack rhythm section that included Elvis guitarist Reggie Young, New Beginnings is a rich, literate record. Anyone with even a passing interest in the union between soul and country music will be able to tell they’ve located solid gold as soon as Larry Jon’s deep baritone utters the first appreciative “mm-hmm” a few bars into the opening ‘Ohoopee River Bottomland’, a fat-bottomed swamp-funk account of hard times in the city and country alike. Funny, nostalgic, sad, wistful, righteously pissed-off: New Beginnings is country-influenced American songwriting at its finest, from the feverish country-got-soul groove pulsating behind the weary sigh of “Through The Eyes of Children” to the elemental lament “Things Ain’t What It Used to Be (and Probably Never Was)”, a country standard that somehow got away, Wilson’s compelling presence and rich voice keeping saccharine and self-pity at bay at all times.

    The audio for New Beginnings comes from the original analogue tape transfers and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. We’ve taken the same care with the striking cover art and we were honoured when Larry’s close friend Jeb Loy Nichols kindly agreed to contribute wonderfully unique liner notes, presented beautifully on the printed inner sleeve opposite a gorgeous black and white shot of Larry, mid-performance.

    REMASTERED FROM ORIGINAL TAPE TRANSFERS, CAREFULLY REPRODUCED ORIGINAL ART, STRICTLY LIMITED TO 500 COPIES WORLDWIDE – NO REPRESS

  • Larry Jon Wilson – Let Me Sing My Song To You

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1622323 Larry Jon Wilson kam zu spät zur Party. Als er in Nashville ankam, hatte der Country-Soul-Pionier Tony Joe White bereits sechs Alben veröffentlicht. Townes Van Zandt hatte sieben, Mickey Newbury acht gemacht. Kristofferson, der akzeptierte Hohepriester des Neuen Nashville, hatte fünf gemacht. Er begann erst im Alter von 30 Jahren mit dem Gitarrespielen, aber fünf Jahre später veröffentlichte er sein Debüt, 'New Beginnings' (1975) und folgte ihm nur ein Jahr später mit 'Let Me Sing My Song To You', beide auf Monument Records. Eine Offenbarung unter den Hipstern und Kritikern von Nashville, die dafür sorgte, dass Larry Jon sofort als Teil der Mitte der 70er Jahre beginnenden "Outlaw Country Movement" aufgenommen wurde.

    New Beginnings failed to propel Larry Jon to even the relatively modest cult acclaim enjoyed by his likeminded contemporaries. And some of the frustration this conjured can be heard on 1976's Let Me Sing My Song To You. Both the title track and the self-deprecating “Drowning in the Mainstream” speak of Wilson’s hope to inch at least a few steps towards the big time without making too many compromises. Any album containing the likes of the heartfelt, deeply beautiful tribute of “Ballad of Handy Mackey” and the superlative country-gothic funk opus ‘Sheldon Churchyard’ – the lead track from the lauded Country Got Soul compilation - must rank as essential listening.

    The audio for Let Me Sing My Song To You comes from the original analogue tape transfers and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. We’ve taken the same care with the striking cover art and we were honoured when Larry’s close friend Jeb Loy Nichols kindly agreed to contribute wonderfully unique liner notes, presented beautifully on the printed inner sleeve opposite a gorgeous black and white shot of Larry, mid-performance.
