    Sektion: Highlights

    De LuxUm es bis zu Album Nummer drei zu schaffen, muss eine Gruppe ein überzeugendes Debüt geben und dann den Einbruch beim zweiten Album vermeiden.

  • The Molochs – Flowers In The Spring

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1620027 Das Duo The Molochs aus Los Angeles meldet sich mit seinem zweiten Album für Innovative Leisure zurück. Inspiriert von Künstlern wie Syd Barrett, Dylan, Nikki Sudden oder Peter Perrett von the Only Ones, arbeitete Sänger & Gitarrist Lucias Fitzsimons noch härter an der Qualität im Songschreiben. Die Songs sollten simpel werden, was jedoch nicht einfach ist. "Flowers In The Spring" ist ein sorgfältig ausgearbeiteter Gegenangriff gegen das Inhumane geworden, mit klaren, prägnanten, unmittelbaren, unbestreitbaren, einfachen, direkten Popsongs. Für Fans von Violent Femmes, Modern Lovers, The Byrds, The Vaselines, Mac Demarco, The Velvet Underground und Kurt Vile. Erhältlich ab 14.09.2018 Getaggt mit:
  • The Molochs – Flowers In The Spring (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1620026 First, let’s meet back up with the Molochs—you remember them, right? Their America’s
    Velvet Glory was the earliest burst of light and energy to hit in 2017, an album of electrified
    rock ‘n’ roll like Dylan and Lou Reed by a band named after the Ginsberg-ian glutton god
    who demanded the sacrifice of all things good and pure. But now it’s 2018 and Moloch
    himself is fatter and happier than ever, so the Molochs couldn’t just make another record.
    After Glory showed the world who they were, they needed to make an album that showed
    what they could do. So Flowers In The Spring is where the Molochs worked harder, thought
    harder and fought harder to be the kind of band that the times demand: “I like to think the
    world just needs some good solid songs out there,” founder Lucas Fitzsimons says. “It’s
    simple. It’s not easy … but it’s simple.”
    America’s Velvet Glory, their first-ever record for L.A.’s Innovative Leisure label, had sparked
    their first-ever U.S and European tours, first-ever festival sets, first-ever international press
    and more. (Top music mag Mojo even said they’d made one of the year’s best albums—“Any
    year!”) Follow-up Flowers bloomed almost exactly a year later at Long Beach’s Jazzcats
    studio between December of 2017 and January of 2018, where Fitzsimons and longtime
    band member Ryan Foster had recorded Glory. By the time they’d returned, they had a slate
    of songs that had come to Fitzsimons in flash moments, written on nerve-wracking
    transcontinental flights or on isolated nights in an L.A. apartment, captured at once in bursts
    of insight or rescued from almost-abandonment in discarded notebooks.
    As on Glory, inspiration from Syd Barrett, Dylan, Nikki Sudden and kindred spirit Peter Perrett
    of the Only Ones was at work, but the Molochs are endlessly (appropriately?) ravenous when
    it comes to things to read and listen to and learn from. On Flowers they’d refine and
    recombine their sound, working in that long tradition of poets who cover (or discover)
    themselves in pop songs. “To Kick In A Lover’s Door” blows Flowers open with the wit and
    precision of the Go-Betweens, and “I Wanna Say To You” draws more from some of
    Creation Records’ dreamiest dreamers than it does from any esoteric 60s howlers. “Flowers
    In The Spring” and “Pages Of Your Journal” could be two lost Kinks singles from two
    different Kinks eras—that Ray Davies-ian venom stays the same, of course—and the
    charming/disarming “Too Lost In Love” makes feeling down sound like cheering up, just like
    the Clean did.
    Yes, they do have their first-ever string section here, and that could confuse some people.
    (“People go, ‘Wow, it sounds more mature.’” says Fitzsimons. “What kind of boring shit is
    that?”) But Flowers isn’t a grown-up album or a show-off album or a break-up album or a
    just-had-to-make-another-album album because the Molochs don’t pick targets that tiny.
    Love and disgrace and life and death blur and bleed into each other, but at the core of
    Flowers is a story about standing against the inhuman by being more human, however
    messily honest that needs to be. (Or like Fitzsimons sings at the end of the record: beware
    that “determination by a whole / to destroy the human soul.” Funny how that comes in a
    song where he claims he can’t explain everything that happens to him, because he sort of
    just did.) So consider their new Flowers In The Spring a meticulously plotted counterattack
    against all things Moloch-ian, with clear, concise, immediate, undeniable, simple, direct pop
    songs, says Fitzsimons, each sharpened enough to cut through anything it touched. That’s
    what he needed to do, he says, because that’s what felt most true. Maybe it really was that
    simple, even if it wasn’t easy. Like he’d explain in a song with just seven words: “There’s
    something I wanna say to you.”

  • Vicktor Taiwo – Joy Comes In Spirit

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1619307 In einer Welt, in der Kunst kompromittiert und zu Ware gemacht wird, schrumpft sie zusammen und wird in Schubladen gepackt. Vicktor Taiwò möchte, dass wir uns öffnen. Der junge, lebhafte Singer-Songwriter sorgt mit subtilen Melodien für Gänsehaut und große emotionale Höhepunkte. Taiwòs Debütalbum ist gleichermaßen experimentell wie wohlklingend, Soul und Style werden zu etwas frischem neu arrangiert. Das Album führt einen Künstler ein, der mutig neue Wege beschreitet und musikalische und lyrische Risiken eingeht. Von Hip Hop über Soul, R&B, Folk , Electronica und Psychedelica finden sich viele Einflüsse auf dem Album. Sein Gesang wird mit James Blake, The Weeknd, oder Josef Salvat verglichen. Das Album erscheint auf Innovative Leisure, der Labelheimat von BADBADNOTGOOD, Nick Waterhouse und Nosaj Thing.

  • Mint Field – Pasar De Las Luces (Gatefold 2LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1616904 Hailing from Tijuana, Mexico and comprised of 21-year-olds Estrella Sanchez (vocals &
    guitar) and Amor Amezcua (drums & synths), Mint Field’s sound is organic, spacious, and
    inhabited by spectres that lurk behind rhythms, where Estrella’s angelic voice evokes a
    supernatural world of beauty and melancholy.
    Pasar De Las Luces, their first for LA-based Innovative Leisure Records, is “a compilation of
    our lives from two years ago to now” says the band. Its 13 immaculate tracks nod to
    everything from dream pop to fuzz-saturated shoegaze. Album opener “El Parque Parecía
    No Tener Fin,” is a melodic number with haunting melodic lines where we can appreciate their
    post-punk tendencies. “Ciudad Satélite” has woven harmonies and crescendos that detonate
    into a flurry of feelings anchored by a dramatic bassline. “Quiero Otoño De Nuevo” goes full
    krautrock and is like an introverted, reflective and delicate Neu!. ”Cambios Del Pasar”
    borrows the distorted and imperfect guitar sounds of ‘90s indie bands like Yo Lat Tengo.
    “Nada Es Estático y Evoluciona” develops from minimalism into a silent scream and “Club De
    Chicas” is probably the peppiest song of the bunch. The whole record has a unique sound
    that makes it stand apart from projects by contemporaries
