  • The Skull Defects – The Skull Defects (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1617223 After thirteen years as one of the centerpieces of Sweden’s experimental
    rock scene The Skull Defekts return with their fnal, self-titled album.
    The Skull Defekts are known for merging the coarse vitality of punk with
    the ritualism of folk dances to create music that is addictive, wondrously
    discordant, and rooted in a belief in the overwhelming power of pure
    sound.
    Their fnal self-titled album is the band’s most composed effort to date
    and features new member Mariam Wallentin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums)
    joining core members Joachim Nordwall (founder of groundbreaking
    iDEAL Recordings), Daniel Fagge Fagerström (8 Days of Nothing), and
    Henrik Rylander (Union Carbide Productions).
    The members of The Skull Defekts are singular forces in the European
    experimental scene. Nordwall has frequently collaborated with
    acclaimed saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, including in his Fire! Orchestra,
    alongside Wallentin, who herself has collaborated with Swedish singer
    Lykke Li. In addition to The Skull Defekts, Nordwall and Rylander have
    worked together on numerous projects, including Orchestra Of Constant
    Distress, and Saturn And The Sun. The Defekts have worked with a wide
    variety of labels, a testament to their creative energy and the diversity
    of their output, including Important, Meudiademorte, Diagonal, Aa,
    iDeal, Touch, and Kning Disk. Frequent collaborator and singular artist
    in his own right Daniel Higgs again created the album artwork.

  • ENDON – Boy Meets Girl (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1622997 ENDON is a band as mercurial as they are ferocious. Comprised of the quintet of vocalist Taichi Nagura , guitarist Koki Miyab e, drummer S hin Yokota , and electronics/noisemakers Taro Aiko and Etsuo Nagura , ENDON’s music is contained chaos, bending and colliding genres into one another atop a bed of thunderous distortion, feedback, and unearthly squeals. Vocalist Taichi’s voice embodies an unreal number of personalities with wordless howls seething one moment, and agonized cries the next, before desperate gasps for air. It comes as no surprise that they have been credited as the most extreme band in Tokyo. Boy Meets Girl was envisioned as a soundtrack to an imagined horror film about love. The core of the ensemble’s song structures are often built around Koki’s fuzz-laden guitar and Shin’s drum bombast which propel torrents of hisses and squelches from Taro and Etsuo. Taichi’s largely lyric- less screams, moans, and whimpers are potent messengers of the songs’ emotional heft. There lies an ecstatic, excited energy amidst the anarchic defiance ENDON’s music exudes. Born of the same Japanese scenes that gave rise to the likes of Merzbow and Boredoms , their sound is equally diverse and abrasive. Boy Meets Girl demonstrates ENDON’s singular faculty to produce music that is at once tortured and transcendent LP pressed on virgin vinyl with an artworked inner sleeve and free download card. CD in 4-panel mini-LP style gatefold package with 4-page booklet.

  • Elena Setien – Another Kind Of Revolution (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1623000 Elena Setién is an artist defined by her vivid songwriting and nuanced compositions. Her music exudes the bold individualism and sense of empathy associated with her homeland of Spain’s Basque region. Her careful arrangements are direct and affecting and give her room for forays into experimentation. Setién is a skilled multi-instrumentalist and performed nearly every part on the record save for a few select guitar parts by Steve Gunn . While Elena’s recordings are decidedly pop, she has considerable experience as an improviser. Another Kind Of Revolution , Elena Setién’s Thrill Jockey debut, is a work of entrancing, effortless beauty. Setién grew up during a period of political upheaval in Spain, in the Basque region. The turmoil of the post-dictatorship period of the 1980s and the intensive civic actions left her with a sense of duty to fight for progress. Her lyrics throughout Another Kind Of Revolution describe the beauty of everyday life, nature, and promote the forces of change not as a burden, but as the very source of hope to draw from. Another Kind Of Revolution tells its stories through an expansive sonic palette. Pianos and Wurlitzer take on various timbres for each song, trickling in and out of the foreground with Setién’s distinguished voice gently gliding overtop. Careful attention to specific recording techniques and allowing for the slight imperfections in the instruments and amplifiers, bring a depth to the recordings that is both direct and organic. Elena Setién’s work is elemental and bold. Her music bends simple, familiar sounds and compositional forms into thoroughly unique songs. With Another Kind Of Revolution , Elena Setién continues to defy convention with songs as gorgeous as they are auspicious.

  • SUMAC – Love In Shadow (2LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1620554 SUMAC - guitarist and vocalist Aaron Turner (Old Man Gloom, Mamiffer,
    ISIS), drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists, Erosion), and bassist Brian Cook
    (Russian Circles, Botch) - delivers their third full length album, Love in
    Shadow, a brutalizing dive into love and all its raw emotions. The album
    was recorded live in a single room at Robert Lang Studios (Nirvana, Foo
    Fighters) in Washington by Kurt Ballou (Converge), who later mixed the
    album at his own studio GodCity.
    The album ?ows with the continued momentum from their acclaimed
    collaborative release with with legendary Japanese artist Keiji Haino
    (Fushitsusha, Painkiller) earlier this year American Dollar Bill - Keep
    Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On, incorporating
    more freeform abstraction into their raw, bombastic, and jagged sound. The
    intense exploration of tension and chaos is mirrored in Turner’s striking
    visual art for the album, where strands of frayed ink and hints of color
    coalesce into a swamp-like form both elaborately disorienting and minutely
    structured in its packaging.
    Each member of SUMAC has remained prolifc within their own right, with
    Turner continuing to release albums with a myriad of projects and through
    his own imprint SIGE, Yacyshyn recently releasing new music with Baptists
    as well as scoring a horror flm soundtrack, and Cook consistently touring
    the world, sharing the stage with bands like Mastodon, Chelsea Wolfe, and
    many more.
    Love can be ugly. But at its core, it’s alive, unpredictable, and volatile. On
    Love In Shadow, SUMAC captures that passion in the most primal and
    unfettered manner possible.

    TRACK LISTING:

  • Marisa Anderson – Cloud Corner (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1618481 On her Thrill Jockey debut, acclaimed guitarist Marisa Anderson’s
    music is boundless. Anderson is undeniably a master of
    the North American traditions of country, folk, and blues on
    guitar. On Cloud Corner, Anderson expands on those styles as well
    as instrumentation. Written and recorded in a period of political
    and personal upheaval, the album is intended as a refuge, an ode
    to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. The results are an album of
    remarkably intimate beauty.
    The solo guitar work of Marisa Anderson owes its familiar tones to
    her awareness of history and her mastering of her instrument, yet it
    is completely new. Marisa Anderson flters musical history through
    her own personal experiences, as a traveler in life and in music.
    A curious and gifted player, Anderson has spent over 35 years of
    performing forging her singular, instantly recognizable voice. Marisa
    Anderson’s Cloud Corner is hopeful in the face of any discord, a
    resplendent diverse sound sanctuary that shines, a mirror of the
    horizon it looks towards.
    “Marisa Anderson doesn’t just play guitar — she sinks into bends
    and lingers over melodies, knowing when to light a fre under her
    fngers and when to wind like a creek.” – NPR Music
    “The deft and vigilant way Portland-based guitarist Marisa Anderson
    has with a six-string garnered her some old-fashioned word-ofmouth. Anderson’s ingested both the country blues and bluegrass
    lexicon in such a way so as to voice something new.”
    – Rolling Stone
    “Her sound has strength in restless variety…Anderson’s playing is
    heartfelt and utterly American- free from grandstanding and steeped
    in respect for the old tradition.” – The Wire

  • The Body – I Have Fought Against It, But… (2LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1618138 Absolutely no one makes music like The Body.
    On their follow up to 2016’s acclaimed No One Deserves Happiness,
    the Portland duo of Lee Buford and Chip King conjure the sublime
    from the unexpected by turning their compositional approach on its
    head. The Body continue to defy the constraints of what it means
    to be a “heavy” band, seamlessly combining diverse in?uences for
    an utterly singular sound. The album’s contributors include Kristin
    Hayter (Lingua Ignota), Michael Berdan (Uniform), and Ben Eberle
    (Sandworm), as well as frequent collaborator Chrissy Wolpert
    (Assembly of Light Choir). Production was handled by Machines
    With Magnets (Lightning Bolt, Battles).
    The Body transcend musical boundaries. Their ambitious creativity
    shapes their bleak worldview into propulsive, affecting, and even
    danceable music often drenched in distortion.
    The Body will be touring throughout 2018, including appearances at
    Roadburn and Sled Island festivals.
    The Body have recently collaborated with Full of Hell, Thou, Krieg,
    Haxan Cloak, and Wrekmeister Harmonies.
