Carroll — As Far As Gardens Go

Moving water, a little open floor space, a reel to reel tape deck, and the old tour van packed with gear was all Carroll needed to lay down their second LP As Far As Gardens Go.

Chronicling the move from Minneapolis to Philadelphia the new songs were woven together everywhere but home. The album grew from the meals the band cooked together in other people’s kitchens, and the nights slept on hospitable floors in sleeping bags unrolled between the microphones after the console was shut down for the night.

Written and produced by the band, and mixed by Jon Low (The National, The War On Drugs, Sharon Van Etten) the sophomore full-length is out now via Shattered Orb and perfectly encapsulates the story of a band being hurtled through their lives, leaving things behind and charting a course forward.

 

David First — Same Animal, Different Cages Vol. 2: Solomonos for Analog Synthesizer LP

Image of *Subscription: DAVID FIRST "Same Animal Different Cages" Vols. 1-4

About Same Animal, Different Cages:  “Sometime in the late winter of 2014 I began experiencing a certain nagging artistic malaise. I felt like I was spending too much energy on live performances and not being as creatively vital as I’d like. With that in mind, I resolved to cut some cords in the New Year and get back to the aspects of the process I’d been missing – learning new things and creating and recording new work. I also decided to challenge myself, without running roughshod, to not get bogged down in the ‘revising, editing and perfecting’ of things – always a potential pitfall in this digital age – and make ‘honest’, unmediated tracks that would directly reflect what I’d discover. Choosing an instrument a month, through a regimen of daily practice, I would develop and record material that would result in an album by month’s end.” – David First

The first four volumes in the series will include explorations on acoustic guitar, analog modular synthesizer, harmonica, and sitar.  Available as a subscription from Fabrica Records.

 

Record Highlights — Midwich Records Debuts

Midwich Records is a new Chicago record label dedicated to electronic music, ranging from techno, ambient, experimental and noise. The label is releasing music on vinyl only, complimented with digital downloads. The covers are adorned with the retina-burning work of renowned artist Mark Salwowski.

The first two releases from the label are new records from Detroit’s Moon Pool and Dead Band and Chicago’s MAGAS.

Moon Pool and Dead Band - MEQ 2x12" (MW-001) MAGAS - Heads Plus 12" EP (MW-002)

Moon Pool and Dead Band’s MEQ (pronounced MEK–futurespeak for ‘mech’) is an album of swinging, dirty, analog techno-funk, created with mountains of old synthesizers. MEQ consists of Moon Pool and Dead Band’s earliest  track, reworked by some of Detroit’s (and ex-Detroit) best producers: Patrick Russell, BMG (Brendan M. Gillen of Ectomorph), JTC (Dabrye/Charles Manier aka Tadd Mullinix), Ice Cold Chrissy (Coyote Clean Up), Michael Dykehouse, Erno the Inferno and Nate Young in Wolf Eyes mode. MEQ plays like an album, rather than a collection of remixes.

MAGAS’s Heads Plus is the first proper vinyl release from James Marlon Magas since 2009’s Violent ARP. For the past several years, Magas has been concentrating on instrumental production, eschewing vocal histrionics of previous work, in favor of moodier, more open-ended composition. This focus has resulted in the bombastic and hallucinatory Heads Plus, an all-instrumental wallop that fuses howling ARP Odyssey, capricious Juno funk and fuzzed Rhodes anchored to the ever-present throb of the Roland TR-808 drum machine.

 

 

Record Highlight — Lake Street Dive

How is it that something so unlikely can also be so infectious, so naturally exhilarating? Pulling in familiar elements and irreverently scrambling and recombining them, Lake Street Dive are at once jazz-schooled, DIY-motivated, and classically pop obsessed. Beginning with catchy songs that are by turns openhearted and wryly inquisitive, this northeastern quartet proceeds to inject them with an irresistible blend of abandon and precision. Composed of drummer Mike Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, vocalist Rachael Price, and trumpet-wielding guitarist Mike “McDuck” Olson, Lake Street Dive encompasses a myriad of possibilities within its members’ collective experiences, and the resultant music is a vivid, largely acoustic, groove-driven strain of indie-pop. “It seems the only limitation we have,” Kearney explains, “ is that we try to make music that we would like listening to.”

The new record, Fun Machine, is available now from Signature Sounds.

 

Record Highlight — Sirs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sirs is a four-piece punk band from upstate New York. Formed in 2009 after meeting at school, original members consisted of Justin Jurgens, Dave Benton, Kyle Seely and Hart Seely.  Their fantastic self-titled LP dropped this month via Topshelf Records.  Grab it!

Customer Highlight — Converge / Dropdead

A pairing of two legendary bands celebrating their joint twenty year history within the Punk/Hardcore genre.

Both songs were recorded at Kurt Ballou’s God City Studios in early 2011, and mastered by John Golden (Neurosis, Melvins, etc). “Runaway” from Converge is an instant classic for the band, unrelenting in its speed and emotional ferocity from beginning to end. While Dropdead’s “Paths of Glory” is an unforgettable political punk/hardcore anthem, that proves that the years behind the band have only strengthened their hold on the battlefront of the true underground.

We used our “vinyl bong” technique to press literally thousands of color variants of this release.  Hit up Deathwish to grab a copy before they are all gone!

Customer Highlight — Forecast

We are proud to say that this is now our second Forecast LP pressing!  This self-titled LP comes courtesy of our friends at Youth Conspiracy Records.

The Forecast’s third full-length is self-titled for a reason: It is the band’s best work to date, completely defining their sound and purpose.  The album fuses together the best parts of mid-’90s emo, turn of the century post-hardcore and elements of both timeless country and pop.

This special pressing is comprised of eight different extremely limited runs of different color wax —

/122 Cherry 7-Up
/83 Suicide
/26 Cream Soda
/24 Mountain Dew
/14 Diet Cherry 7-Up
/3 Mello Yello
/2 Orange Fanta
/1 Vanilla Milkshake With A Cherry On Top.

You can grab a copy of these color records (while supplies last) from Youth Conspiracy.

Customer Highlight — Take Offense

Take Offense, formed in 2005, is a band that hails from the Southwestern most region of the United States; Chula Vista, CA — a 5 minute travel from the Tijuana, Mexico border.  After a self-released cassette tape and EP entitled Peace In Death, as well as the Happiness Under Chains EP released on Double Or Nothing Records, Take Offense are soon to be releasing a full length album entitled Tables Will Turn on Reaper Records. The record will feature a total of 10 songs — 7 of which brand new while 3 previously written songs will round out the release. With a full touring schedule planned in support of Tables Will Turn, be sure to keep attune for much more from Take Offense.
