  • Brokeback – Illinois River Valley Blues (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1607954 A sense of place has been essential to the music of Brokeback since guitarist/bassist
    Douglas McCombs frst launched the project in 1995. Initially conceived as a solo
    outlet, the Chicago group has taken on new dimensions over the past two decades,
    morphing from the lean, pastoral ambience of the frst album, Field Recordings
    from the Cook County Water Table, to the more muscular, taut arrangements
    and dynamic swells of the last release, Brokeback and the Black Rock, for which
    McCombs assembled a new quartet lineup. Each album develops with exacting
    detail, revealing McCombs’s gift for dialing in the essence of a mood, feeling, or
    distant locale with a handful of reverb-laden guitar tones, elegant and sustained,
    strategically placed and sparingly deployed. The instrumental landscapes he creates
    on Illinois River Valley Blues are utterly transportive, evoking familiar open-frontier
    soundtracks and charting out new sonic territory.
    McCombs’s singular approach to guitar and bass, characteristic of his work with
    Tortoise, is expertly enhanced here by James Elkington (Tweedy, Steve Gunn) on
    second guitar (moving over from drums on the last record). The two salute one of
    McCombs’s favorite bands, Television, with latticed dual leads on the stately yet
    aggressive “On the Move and Vanishing,” while Elkington’s subtle layers of pedal
    steel and organ burnish more ruminative forays like “Andalusia, IL” and “Ursula.”
    Their intertwining ?ights are anchored by the sturdy yet versatile rhythm team of
    bassist Pete Croke (Exit Verse, Tight Phantomz) and drummer Areif Sless-Kitain
    (the Eternals), the newest member of Brokeback.
    Thematically this is McCombs’s most personal offering yet, re?ecting on his early
    years growing up along the Illinois River corridor between Peoria and Chicago.
    Though the inspiration is McCombs’s, the execution is wholly a group effort. With
    the same instrumentation and mostly the same lineup as the previous album, the
    band stretches its leader’s eternal fascination with the roots of American guitar
    music in bold new directions. A serpentine mystique runs through “Rise, Fernanda,
    Rise!,” and “Cairo Levee” conjures a desert atmosphere closer to the Sahara than
    the American southwest. Side one of the album closes with a moody, meditative
    take on “Spanish Venus,” a ballad written by cornetist and sometime Brokeback
    collaborator Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground, Exploding Star Orchestra). “I
    could hear Brokeback doing the tune from the moment I heard him workshopping
    it with Pulsar Quartet at a little cocktail bar in Logan Square,” says McCombs.
    Several songs feature lush, multi-layered vocals by Amalea Tshilds (the Paulina
    Hollers), who made a deep impression on McCombs with a spellbinding a cappella
    performance a couple years ago. “I often imagine female vocals on Brokeback
    records, but I wanted it to be someone that I have personal history with, someone
    who can nail it, not to mention someone who I know digs the music,” he says.
    “That’s why Mary Hansen (Stereolab) sang on all those earlier records and why I
    wanted Lea for this.”
    Illinois River Valley Blues is a winding, wistful travelogue that not only captures
    darker textures but mines their depths. That’s been part of McCombs’s vision for
    Brokeback from the start: “To me a song is not worth writing if it doesn’t have a
    strong sense of melancholy,” he says

  • Fickle Pickle – Sinful Skinful (LP+7” / RSD)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1618112 It’s always tempting to compensate for an artist’s commercial or critical obscurity by making outrageous claims on their behalf – an idea spoofed by self-deprecating album titles like Wizz Jones’s The Legendary Me and the TV Personalities’ They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles. While nobody is suggesting that Fickle Pickle were ever likely to eclipse the Fab Four, they were certainly one of the more interesting acts operating in the early ’70s post-Beatles Britpop wasteland. Boasting four writers, singers and multi-instrumentalists who, between them, also handled production, engineering and arrangement duties, Fickle Pickle had the wit, cynicism, hooks, harmonies and technical dexterity to bridge the barren years between the demise of The Beatles and the eventual arrival in late 1972 of their kindred spirits 10cc.

    As it turned out, Fickle Pickle did score a couple of hits in The Netherlands, and it was those minor successes that gave these studio-bound pop polymaths the impetus to assemble an entire album. Almost criminally, however, Sinful Skinful failed to gain a release outside of Holland – and, even then, only on a tiny independent label, Explosion. Sinful Skinful duly sold about seven-and-a-half copies before disappearing into the ether, and when follow-up singles also missed the mark, the members of Fickle Pickle vanished once more into the backroom, just another dropped stitch in the unknowable, unending tapestry of British pop.

    Nearly half-a-century after the Dutch public had largely ignored its release, this first-ever vinyl reissue of the Sinful Skinful album is joined by a four-track EP that features a trio of non-LP single tracks from the era as well as the November 1970 outtake ‘Through The Days’ – the belated appearance of which will at least thrill its writer (and vocalist) Cliff Wade, whose McCartney impersonation on a cloning of ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ went some way towards giving a largely non-existent outfit the chance to sire the album that you’re now holding in your impeccably manicured hand…

  • Dommengang – Love Jail (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1616778 Dommengang, guitarist Dan “Sig” Wilson, bassist Brian Markham, and
    drummer Adam Bulgasem, recorded their sophomore album Love Jail
    shortly after relocating to Los Angeles. It was not just a coast shift for two
    of the members, but the frst time the band were together in one city. The
    sophomore album re?ects the openness of their new surroundings as well
    as the energy and experience of being reunited and playing together in the
    same place. Dommengang have adapted to the arid climates, and imbued
    their particular brand of rock with a heavy dose of the best of 1970’s rock
    aesthetics, including at least one ballad. The album was produced by
    The Fucking Champs guitarist and engineer Tim Green (Joanna Newson,
    Howlin’ Rain, Sleepy Sun, Fresh and Onlys) who perfectly captured the
    band’s sound while creating the space of older analog recordings. Love Jail
    includes Dommengang’s most melodic and lyric-heavy songs to date – a
    great road trip record, and a dynamic listen that is of the moment, organic
    and earthy with a heavy nod to the clear, lean recordings of a time long
    before any of its members were born.
    Over the course of ten songs, Dommengang draw widely from the American
    rock music lexicon, primarily in?uenced by electric blues. The band draws
    from the guitar-driven sounds of the blues as much its energy and sense of
    freedom. The clash of Sig Wilson’s psychedelic roots and the punk-tinged
    backgrounds of Markham and Bulgasem, gives Love Jail its grit. From the
    earth-scorching passages of “Pastel City” to the spaced-out ?ourishes of
    “Dave’s Boogie,” to the dirty funk of “I’m Out Mine,” the album is a desert
    driver’s dream. The guitar and vocal interplay of “Color Out of Space,” or
    the anthemic choruses of “Going Down Fast” are rock the way it used to be:
    no heavy effects, just bass, drums, and guitar, great songs of love and lust,
    all with a healthy dose of guitar solos. In short Love Jail is Dommengang at
    their catchiest. Shimmering with the clarity of Tim Green’s engineering, the
    album’s live, in-the-room energy perfectly translates Dommengang’s core
    ethos: rock and roll will never die.
