NEW RELEASES FEBBRAIO 2019: WHAT'S GOING ON MY MUSIC PLAYER?
BEIRUT
"Gallipoli"

"Gallipoli started, in my mind, when I finally had my old Farfisa organ shipped to New York from my parent’s home in Santa Fe, NM. I acquired the organ from my first job at the CCA; the local foreign film theater and gallery space. A traveling circus’ keyboard player (not a joke) had left it in the warehouse after certain keys and functions of the organ had broken down and stopped working. I spent the next three years writing every song I could possibly squeeze out of it."

COTONETE
"Super-vilains"
Originally starting out in the late 90s, Paris-based 8 piece, Cotonete originally gained fame for renditions of tracks from their contemporaries, the likes of: Deodato, Lalo Schiffrin and Banda Black Rio. Replicating the heavy grooves, sweaty jazz-funk with a nod to the Brazilian warmth and beach breeze. Before bowing out of the game thinking the fun was over.

DELINES
"Imperial"

A Fender Rhodes kicks in and you know you’re in a safe place. It’s lush resonant tones set the scene, a lap steel slides in to introduce a laconic but oh-so dulcet tune. Crying guitars present tales of broken hearts. Smooth soulful vocals and the sweet golden tones of a brass section complete the mellowest album this year so far.

EX:RE
"S/t"

Elena Tonra is the singer, songwriter and guitarist for Daughter. This is her first album for the new project that she runs simultaneously alongside Daughter.

JULIA KENT
"Temporal"

Much of the music that comprises the album was originally written to accompany theatre and dance productions. “The initial inspiration was more external than internal, in that many of these pieces began as a response to a text or a choreographic concept,” Julia explains, “but they all seemed to be coming from the same emotional world and it made sense to weave them together into a record.”

SARAH LOUISE
"Nighttime birds and morning stars"

Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars is Sarah Louise’s most fearless work to date. Louise broadens beyond folk forms on her latest, turning streams of raw electric guitar into entire oceans of aural texture. Her rich playing is warped beyond recognition through inventive synthesizing and digital manipulations.

MERCURY REV
"Bobbie Gentry's The Delta Sweete revisited"

“Ode to Bilie Joe” Bobbie Gentry’s 1967 debut as a singer-songwriter and a Number One single for three weeks in the late Summer of Love, was the most psychedelic record of that year not from San Francisco or London, as if Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Brian Wilson had conspired to make a country-rock Pet Sounds. Gentry’s hit was a revolutionary act, a quietly thorough feminism in vision, deed and success amid the strict, paternal order of the country-music industry.

PIROSHKA
"Brickbat"

The four band members are former Lush vocalist/guitarist (and former redhead) Miki Berenyi, former Moose guitarist KJ McKillop, Modern English bassist Mick Conroy and former Elastica drummer Justin Welch. The connections between them are a veritably tangled family tree. Before they lived together and raised a family, Miki and Moose were notable figures on the so-called shoegaze scene, while Elastica were Britpop peers.

"Fare Thee Well" and "Poly Blue" retain glimmers of On Your Own Love Again's hazy day spells, but delicate arrangements for piano, flute, organ and strings instill a lush, chamber pop.

"Gravity pairs"

Beacon’s third full-length record enters sight as a work of meticulous revision and refraction.

EMANUELE ERRANTE
"Evanescence of a thousand colours"

Ever since his widely acclaimed debut LP Migrations was released in 2006, tone color has always been an important aspect of Emanuele Errante’s music. Drawing from both electronic and acoustic sources, his compositions paint impressionistic vignettes with sonic intensities.
His fourth LP The Evanescence of a Thousand Colors, his second solo release on the Berlin-based Karaoke Kalk label, deals more explicitly with color than before.

Heather Leigh takes her Throne as queen of pedal steel with a suite of heartbleed ballads cauterised with burning riffs. Leigh's artwork (which she photographed and designed) is a visual mirror of the songs on Throne. It is an album of cosmic echoes, abstractions and introspection, of characters and stories that make up Leigh's first best pop record, its melodies and hooks set alight with the fiery core of her unique and distinctive pedal steel.

Shadow Aesthetics results from a virtual arsenal of digital and analog sources operating in a complex system of origination, structuring, processing and editing. The result is a moving, articulate and complex album: music that is profoundly emotive, original, and experimental. In every way Shadow Aesthetics reveals itself as a culmination of decades of listening, performing and composing.

Marie Davidson’s new album turns the mirror on herself. "Working Class Woman” is the Montreal-based producer’s fourth and most self-reflective record: it’s a document of her state of mind, a reflection of the past year she’s spent living in Berlin, and a comment on the stresses and strains of operating within the spheres of dance music and club culture.

"A soundtrack for a film"

The title of this new Factory Floor record is playfully coy. These tracks were, indeed, initially conceived to score a film, specifically a 90th anniversary showing of Fritz Lang’s 1927 movie Metropolis at the London Science Museum’s IMAX screen. A Soundtrack For A Film is a hugely ambitious work, clocking in at around 150 minutes and filled with ideas.

The Canadian’s 9th solo release Konoyo, like its predecessor, Love Streams [2016] also finds Hecker drawn to acoustic instruments and collaboration with a larger ensemble or collective, this time working with the Tokyo Gakuso ensemble after commanding an Icelandic choir on his previous album. However, the results here have a different purpose, swapping out ecstatic density for an intently refined and spacious approach, allowing his processed sources to ring out beautifully un/true in a sort of parallel dimensional harmonic spectrum.

Karen Peris' gift for melodic subtlety manifests itself on a number of highlights like Green Bus and the more expansive Shadow of the Pines, two songs that dance nimbly between the dark and light places where emotions are most vulnerable. Poignant and poetic, she builds evocative vignettes out of seemingly simple scenes, describing with surprising richness the movements of her brother in the dusty afternoon light of the title song. The arrangements on these ten tracks are somewhat denser and more intricate than on the band's previous few outings, relying on rich string arrangements, horns, reverberating piano thrums and even a handful of clamorous drums - All Music Guide

We are simultaneously the creators of our personal universe and creations of our personal universe. The Earth side of this album represents the world as I see it outwardly, the world that I am a part of.

CRISPY AMBULANCE
"The plateau phase"

Factory Benelux presents a new CD edition of The Plateau Phase, the debut album by Manchester postpunk group Crispy Ambulance, originally issued in March 1982.

THE NAMES
"Swimming"

Factory Benelux presents a new CD edition of Swimming, the debut album by Belgian new wave group The Names, originally issued in June 1982. Swimming has come to be regarded as a European cold wave classic. Bonus tracks include the popular singles Calcutta and Nightshift (also produced by Hannett) and the band's John Peel session from February 1982. This new Factory Benelux CD edition also features original artwork and poster design by Benoit Hennebert.

RIP RIG + PANIC
"God"

Named after a Roland Kirk album, Rip Rig + Panic were one of the most exciting bandsof the 1980s, fusing funk, jazz, punk and world music influences into a unique whole. With lead singer Neneh Cherry, the band recorded three albums for Virgin Records which have never been legitimately available on Cd. All three LPs are now remastered from the original master tapes with a raft of bonus tracks taken from non-album singles. Original band members Gareth Sager (ex-Pop Group) and Mark Springer are involved with these releases, with the blessing of Neneh Cherry and (current PiL) drummer Bruce Smith.

ANNETTE PEACOCK
"I'm the one"

In 2010 Annette Peacock quietly reissued her 1972 album I'm The One on CD via her own Ironic label. It was only available via her site or CDBaby, but now I'm The One is being given a full reissue shakedown by Light In The Attic. Peacock collaborated with Salvador Dali, bought a Moog direct from Robert Moog, was confidant to Timothy Leary, and turned down an offer to tour with David Bowie, telling him to buy his own synthesizer.

THE POP GROUP
"For how much longer do we tolerate
mass murder?"

Reissue of The Pop Group’s ‘For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder’ - one of the most challenging records of the post-punk era. Upon its release in 1980, For How Much Longer received mixed reviews, with publications at the center of post-punk discourse (such as the NME) dismissing its agit-prop didacticism in favor of the fevered mysticism of the group's debut album, Y.

LIZZY MERCIER DESCLOUX
"One for the soul"

Remastered from original tapes. Housed in heavyweight, tip on-style gatefold with essay by Vivian Goldman and download code including 2 bonus tracks “By the time poet, singer-songwriter, and artist Lizzy Mercier Descloux recorded 1984’s Zulu Rock, she’d marked herself out as both a globe trotter with more passport stamps than Tintin and a musical innovator whose loose, arty spirit could be applied to styles as varied as no wave, Bavarian oompa and Soweto jive.

VIVIEN GOLDMAN
"Resolutionary (Songs 1979-1982)"

Vivien Goldman went from being a musical participant of the early-'80s London-New York fusion of dub, post-punk, reggae, hip-hop and African sounds to a keen, informative critic and professor of those genres in general. This excellent album is the first collection of Goldman's brief yet vibrant musical explorations. Included among the various talents are members of the Slits, PiL, the Raincoats, Robert Wyatt, Steve Beresford, David Toop, and Adrian Sherwood. These tracks combine a pop sensibility with the avant-dub deconstructionist mindset that lends her work that rare and special mix of accessibility and experimentation.

SECTION 25
"Always now"

Factory Benelux presents a deluxe double disc edition of Always Now, the debut album by cult Factory Records group Section 25, produced by legendary sonic architect Martin Hannett in 1981. Recorded as a trio at Pink Floyd's Britannia Row studio in London, Always Now combined austere post-punk rhythms with elements of Can, Krautrock and modern psychedelia. Key tracks include non-albums singles Charnel Ground, Je Veux Ton Amour and Girls Don’t Count. This new Factory Benelux 2xCD edition is housed in a miniature version of the folding pochette wallet designed by Peter Saville - famously one of the most expensive sleeves produced by Factory.

Ridateci il vinile, ridateci la possibilità di avere dischi che durano trenta, quaranta minuti, fatti di canzoni e brani che gli artisti hanno voluto metterci, senza inutili e insulsi riempitivi, Ridateci il vinile, ridateci un oggetto che magari si sente peggio, che non è portatile, che è grande e scomodo, ma che rappresenta la musica quanto la musica che contiene. Ridateci il vinile, che ha un valore intrinseco che nessun CD riuscirà mai ad avere. Ridateci il vinile, assieme ai file mp3 e ai Compact Disc, utili ognuno per un motivo diverso. Certo, magari guadagnerete meno, magari i clamorosi fatturati che l'industria discografica ha fatto quando è arrivato il CD non li vedrete più, ma di sicuro non perderete l'anima e il lavoro. Il lavoro lo state già perdendo, e anche l'anima, trasformandovi in venditori di magliette, poster, gadget. Venditori di diritti televisivi e radiofonici, produttori di concerti e di DVD di certo non più "discografici". Ridateci il vinile e provate a salvare il vostro, nostro, mercato della musica. Abbandonate l'idea di vendere pezzi di plastica e tornate a vendere dischi.
