...a fairly expansive collection...underground rap or alternative rap...according to Allmusic: "Underground Rap falls into two categories. It is either hardcore hip-hop that pushes musical boundaries and has lyrics that are more inventive than gangsta clichés, or it is hardcore gangsta rap that wallows in all of the musical and lyrical cliches of the genre. What the two styles have in common is that they have little regard for mainstream conventions, and they celebrate their independent status"...also these songs are far and away more creative than mainstream hip-hop...

Cableline's Attic EP, Vol. 1

...on my website i have began to do weekly ep's as well as the monthly full length mixtapes...i have just posted the first weekly ep there...just click on is the information...

02. Green On Red: Gravity Talks
03. Dream Syndicate: Let It Rain
04. The Long Ryders: I Had A Dream
05. Rainy Day: I'll Be Your Mirror

...a paisley underground mix...according to the paisley sound is defined as "the most distinctive subgenre of jangle pop in the mid-'80s. Like jangle pop, the bands in the paisley underground revived the clean, chiming textures of folk rock, but they had a more psychedelic bent to their sound. Jangle-pop bands weren't necessarily revivalists — they updated the ringing guitars and melodies of '60s guitar pop for the '80s — but the paisley underground was determined to keep the sound of the '60s alive, through their music and their appearance. The paisley underground gained a dedicated following in the American underground during the mid-'80s."..who am i to argue...enjoy...


...and the May 2009 full length mix should be out in about a week...going to be a good one...

København Store - Action, Please!

There is a thread running through the continent, from the north of
Europe to the north of Italy.
A long, long thread, made of chilly melodies, bedroom post-rock
and lo-fi electronica. A thread spun by København Store, one of
Italian indie’s best-kept secrets.
Born as a duo at the beginning of 2003, after a journey in
Scandinavian territory (which explains the bizarre moniker), in time
the band evolved to a fuller line-up.
After the first two electronica-tinged demos, København Store
re-discovered guitar sound and moved towards a mutated,
subtly nuanced form of post rock. Like Mùm in a lockdown with
cLOUDDEAD and Godspeed You!Black Emperor.
“Action, Please!”, their first full-length album, was released in
February 2008 by Italian label 42 Records. It was produced by
Giacomo Fiorenza (who also worked with Yuppie Flu, Giardini di
Mirò, Austin Lace and Fuck, among others), and features vocals
by Jonathan Clancy (of Settlefish, A Classic Education and His
Clancyness), Alessandro Raina (of Giardini di Mirò and Casador),
Fabio Campetti (of Ed Wood) and Simone Magnaschi, formerly the
singer in Italian punk legends Stinking Polecats, and now a fulltime
member of København Store.
Its peculiar genesis makes “Action, Please!” come across as the
“You Forgot it in People” of the Italian Broken Indie Social Scene.
The album immediately became a hot item on the national music
press, obtaining enthusiastic reviews on the most widely-read
magazines and webzines. Some of the songs included in the album
also gained airplay on major radio networks.
The live experience, however, is where København Store actually
made the grade. Their shows (over 60 dates in the main live venues
all over Italy, in little over a year) are the stuff rock’n’roll is made
of: the often ethereal, jingling melodies of the album come alive in
a barrage of sound that never fails to amaze the audience. They
have shared the stage with bands such as Mono, Giardini di Mirò,
Apse, Solvent, Populus, Disco Drive and Envelopes. It is perhaps no
coincidence that the band managed to sell over 1,000 copies of
the album, without distribution, entirely at concerts and by wordof.
The video for their first single (shot and directed by Stefano Poletti,
who also worked with several bands on the Italian mainstream
circuit) was picked up for airplay by several music channels,
among which MTV and MTV Brand:New.
March 2009 saw the Italian release of a new version of “Action,
Please!”, finally distributed in record stores by Halidon. The album
was previously available on iTunes and other digital stores, or
through mail order. In the wake of the record’s re-release, the
band is about to go back on tour. In the meantime, they are already
working on their second album, set to be released at the beginning
of 2010.
They are expected to spend the rest of 2009 touring Europe.

Faggot Rock - Collective Grizzly Bears in Rainbows


Faggot Rock is an avantgarde sleaze metal jazz fusion indie rock band hailing from all over the world. The brainchild of a mysterious European with a passionate hatred for the Swedish, Faggot Rock’s band name is at once a political statement and a call to end bigotry. Hateful words aren’t as hateful when they just become words again. Plus, Sean Penn won an Oscar for playing a gay dude.

Eureka Brown - ¡Digitalia!


eureka brown is a file sharing enthusiast from urbana illinois who makes sunny, lo-fi, psychedelic dream-pop. he began to make ripples in late 07 after releasing the first 5 songs from his debut album future vision of the digital universe on myspace. after recieving praise via a myspace comment from one of his favorite bands and influences the bees he sent them a hand made promo copy of the record along with a letter thanking them for listening and professing his passion for all of their records. a few weeks later, just as he was wrapping up a series of shows with his new drummer to promote the album, the very same day the first track (i told you so) from the new album went up, he discovered that he had become one of their top friends! over the summer of 08 he steadily released tracks from the new record immediately upon their completion until one day in august of 08 when he recieved a message from the bbc requesting permission to include his newest song, full speed ahead (only a day or two old at the time), on their 6 music radio show fresh on the net with tom robbinson. furthermore only a small percentage of the artists, about 25%, of those who were included on the live stream made it to the podcast which is now in the bbc's permanent archives, and full speed ahead was the 2nd track on the playlist! it has since been played also on daniel peñacoba's ibiza radio show la captura del sonido/the capture of sound.

this is just very exciting because it shows how in this day and age you can bypass the usual trenches of the musica industry and have something come straight from your basement to the rest of the world without waiting a second. the very moment something is completed it can become available directly from the artist and it's free to evolve into whatever it sees fit. and indeed it has. if you watched them closely along the way you know that their songs were released in a series of versions building up to the ones that we see now, and in fact the final version of full speed ahead that you see here is a slight refinement from the 2nd or 3rd version that was included on the bbc podcast. but it doesn't stop there. these guys will do anything they can think of to destroy the boundries of a conventional record release. and so with this one there is not just one album cover but two variations, each of which are an animated sequence which plays out in the item artwork viewer on the bottom left corner of your itunes library as you click through the ten tracks of the album. also included in the zip folder download is a video only .mov bonus track.

the mp3's were released live at the mike n' molly's show in champaign with coltrane motion late last night. here's what the virtual liner notes have to say about the record:

¡digitalia! is a musical style and a miniature art movement that supports it's belief in file sharing by giving away it's musical content freely. the animation and visual art are inspired by the music, which is a highly computerized form of digital recording that's made with all real instruments. the sound is characterized by it's heavy use of percussion, analog synthesizers, dub effects, vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, surf guitar & funk bass.

this album was also given this name because it's songs exemplify the culmination of the style. ¡digitalia! is the 2nd installment in a planned trilogy of mini-albums that imagine a future where man is faced with the possibility to embrace technologies that completely integrate man and machine.

Chris Clark - Growl's Garden [2009]

Chris Clark returns with six brand new tracks of powerful, atmospheric electronic music. This maritime themed album with its Nordic seatown titles conjures up images of crashing waves and men battling against the elements. Tracks that reflect the steely silver of Berlin, where Chris wrote the material, sample the sounds of boots treading on snow and rocks roughly thrown together to form the urgent basslines that run throughout. The lead track ‘Growls Garden’ features haunting vocals from Chris himself.

01. Growls Garden
02. The Magnet Mine
03. Seaweed
04. Gonk Roughage
05. Distant Father Torch
06. Farewell Mining Town

Future Of The Left - Last Night I Saved Her From Vampires [2009]

Future of the Left's first release for 4AD has just been announced by the band and it's going to be a live album but with a slight twist. Entitled Last Night I Saved Her From Vampires, it was recorded at two live shows - Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach on 13th August and London Water Rats on 20th August. It not only features tracks from feted debut album Curses but also four new ones - 'Drink Nike', 'Distant Jabs At A Soul', 'V.D.F.A' and 'Cloak The Dagger' (the latter two having been a regular fixture of the band's live set throughout this summer).

Peter Von Poehl - May Day [2009]

The whole album is moved by new vibrations, which increase the songs intensity, even if they’ve once again been made by hand. Just like Going to Where the Tea Trees Are, the majority of May Day was put together in the middle of the Swedish countryside in Christoffer Lundquist s marvellous studio. (A longtime friend and collaborator, Lundquist is once again credited as co-producer.) The arrangements on May Day are bursting with discoveries you just know were spontaneous, specific moments that grew organically out of the sessions. The tight groove of Carrier Pigeon, the irresistible pop whirlpool of Moonshot Falls, the rough blueprints of Dust in Heaven and Near the End of the World or the knowing layering of instruments in the knock-out Elisabeth all share the same sense of discovery and the same taste for play, which stretch across all the parts of von Poehl s unclassifiable songwriting. Utterly resistant to gratuitous stylistic devices from the arrangements to the style, the rhythms to the lyrics everything on May Day is there to benefit a musicality free of harmful gimmicks.

Amesoeurs - Amesoeurs [2009]

Amesoeurs was a French post-punk/black metal band formed in 2004 by guitarist/singer Neige of Alcest and Peste Noire fame and bassist/singer Audrey Sylvain. Later, drummer Winterhalter (also in Peste Noire) and guitarist Fursy Teyssier were added to the mix. In 2007 they released the EP Ruines Humaines, followed by the full-length album Amesoeurs in March 2009. After the release of the full-length, Amesoeurs split up due to personal tensions and conflicting ideas regarding the band's future.

Les Claypool - Of Fungi And Foe [2009]

Les Claypool's album "Of Fungi and Foe" is his latest album of all original music. This album is a collection of songs inspired by the projects he has been working on over the past few years, and also contains a jam session with Eugene Hütz the charismatic front-man of the band Gogol Bordello that turned into the track "Bite Out Of Life". Other musicians who appear on the cd include Lapland Miclovik, Mike Dillon, Sam Bass, Paulo Baldi, Cage Claypool, and Bryonn Bain.

The Unfinished Sympathy - Avida Dollars [2009]

The Unfinished Sympathy is a modern rock band inspired by diverse influences such as emo/indie 90's bands, 80's pop, and classic hard rock, like a combination of Jets To Brazil, The Police and Van Halen. They started in 2000 with a demo that came to the hands of BCore, which quickly signed them up. First album "The unfinished sympathy" in 2001 had such a good response that led them to their first spanish and european tours, including the recording of a John Peel Session at London's BBC, being the first spanish band ever to be invited to the show, by John himself. An extensive european tour with american band Joshua, a german tour with labelmates Maple and support for Jimmy Eat World and Bad Religion led them to their second album, "An investment in logistics" in 2003. It reached Top 1 at main spanish indie newspaper Mondo Sonoro, and number 3 for Rock Sound in their annual polls, and started to appear on the covers of specialised magazines. Another exhaustive german tour and a second visit to the BBC studios to record another John Peel Session were quickly followed by their third album, "Rock for food" (2004) which also reached Top 1, this time for Rock Sound, and number 2 for Mondo Sonoro. Before that, the advance single "This living kills" had such a big acclaim thanks to the awarded 35mm video and the cover of Undertones' classic "Teenage kicks", conceived as a gift for their friend John Peel. More than 200 shows around Europe prove this is one of the best spanish rock bands to be followed closely.

Pink Mountaintops - Outside Love [2009]

"Outside Love" is the third album by Pink Mountaintops, AKA Stephen McBean, who has slowly emerged as a distinctive voice and a very special contributor to the North American songbook. A veteran of the Vancouver/Victoria punk rock scene, McBean is best known for his contributions to acclaimed rock band Black Mountain, as principal songwriter, guitarist and co-vocalist. The ten songs on "Outside Love" are about or influenced by weddings in Montreal, winter, Pink Floyd's The Final Cut, Christmas albums, that one Exile song and that one Echo and the Bunnymen song, the Bermuda Triangle, being depressed in the sunshine, people who haven't made out yet but will in the future, The Everly Brothers, clowns in the ceilings, and bedrooms where skinheads used to live. Friends and family who contributed to or appear on "Outside Love", in no particular order, include Sophie Trudeau (A Silver Mt. Zion, Godspeed You! Black Emperor), Ted Bois (Destroyer), Jesse Sykes (Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, sunnO)))), Phil Wandscher (Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, Whiskeytown), Josh Stevenson (Jackie O Motherfucker), Ashley Webber (The Organ, Bonnie Prince Billy), Amber Webber (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust), Matthew Camirand (Black Mountain, Blood Meridian), Joshua Wells (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust), Keith Parry (Superconductor, the Gay), and Tolan McNeil (Caroline Mark). Recorded at multiple studios, "Outside Love" was mixed at Elmwood Studios by John Congleton (Modest Mouse, Black Mountain, Explosions In The Sky, The Mountain Goats).

Pet Shop Boys - Yes [2009]

Yes was produced by Brian Higgins, songwriter and producer who works under the name Xenomania. Past collaborations include work with 90’s disco-revamped Cher, Kylie Minogue and Girls Aloud. Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr also plays on several of the 11 newly recorded tracks.

The Thermals - Now We Can See [2009]

Thermal mainstays Hutch Harris and Kathy Foster recorded Now We Can See as a duo, as they did on 2006's The Body, The Blood, The Machine. Foster performed all drums and bass (and sang for the first time on a Thermals record), while Harris sang lead and played guitar. They returned to Oregon City's Supernatural Sound (where TBTBTM was tracked), with John Congleton (Explosions In The Sky, Polyphonic Spree) producing. The result is the widest, loudest piece of alternative/indie/punk rock The Thermals have yet unleashed.Lyrically, The Thermals have managed to move past religion and politics (having just about over-done them on TBTBTM), yet remain joyously obsessed with love and death. Though the subject matter may be dark at times, the lyrics, as well as the melodies, remain as catchy and uplifting as ever.

The Wooden Birds - Magnolia [2009]

Andrew Kenny is a native Texan who, after nearly six years in Brooklyn, NY, has returned to beautiful Austin, TX. He's best known as the singer/songwriter behind mellow indie favorites the American Analog Set. He's also performed as a guest artist with the Album Leaf, Her Space Holiday, Styrofoam, Arthur and Yu, Ola Podrida, and most recently the Broken Social Scene.
His latest project is called The Wooden Birds, and it is his best effort to date. The Wooden Birds' first album is Magnolia. Fans of the AmAnSet will recognize his voice and songwriting immediately, but the arrangements on Magnolia are more vocal and percussion heavy than anything Kenny has done before. The Wooden Birds also includes Ola Podrida songwriter and David Gordon Green film score composer David Wingo, along with co-producer, Chris Michaels. Vocalist, guitarist, and AmAnSet guest artist, Leslie Sisson, and Lymbic System drummer, Michael Bell, round out the line-up.

Thee Oh Sees - Help [2009]

It’s good to be from San Francisco. At least, that’s true if you’re Thee Oh Sees, who continue to be one of the best underground bands in the bay area, home of the musically diverse scene including Deerhoof and Why? Venerated as the head of garage rock in not only San Francisco but also in the nation, Thee Oh Sees derive definitive influence from 60's Phantom Surfers garage rock, but break loose from the simple power chord definition of many basement jams. Perhaps it births from frontman John Dwyer’s noise rock backgrounds with the Coachwhips and Pink and Brown, the female-male vocal head-on collisions, or the band’s thick spring-reverberated bombastic tunes. Thee Oh Sees’ latest album, The Master's Bedroom is Worth Spending a Night In , on Tomlab Records (home of David Shrigley’s Worried Noodles and previous releases by aforementioned Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu, Tussle, and more), sees the band’s most accomplished release yet. Now a quartet, the alternating coed vocals give the band vibes of the B-52s vocal interplay when the latter found themselves at their least cheesy and most epic (think Mesopotamia). The album weaves Dwyer's distorted quivering yelp—signature of predecessors Suicide and The Wipers—Brigid Dawson's elegant and haunting harmonies, punk-paced guitars, and guttural drums (at times in pairs).

The Boy Least Likely To - The Law Of The Playground [2009]

If The Best Party Ever was the sound of a band chancing their way up the ladders, then The Law Of The Playground finds them merrily sliding back down the snakes.

Condo Fucks - Fuckbook [2009]

Legendary New London, CT trio the Condo Fucks returned to the stage last March after a long absence from the Tri-State Area's concert circuit. A secretive Hoboken rehearsal was recorded and is being released March 24, 2009 by Matador as the LP/CD, Fuckbook. Eschewing such Condo Fucks originals as ‘Fuckin’ Gary Sandy’ and ‘Let’s Get Rid Of New Haven’, the trio – Georgia Condo (drums), Kid Condo (guitar), and James McNew (bass) – instead tear through covers of The Small Faces, Richard Hell, Beach Boys, Electric Eels, Troggs, Flaming Groovies and Slade classics in the style that previously won them so much acclaim from the Nutmeg State’s music journalists and radio programmers all those years ago. In the go-go 1990s, the Condo Fucks released 4 titles on the Matador label (see right), some of which were prominently advertised on the inner sleeve of Yo La Tengo’s I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One. Sadly, these titles are long out of print and we are unable to provide the media with copies. With Fuckbook, a full tour of major Connecticut nightspots is planned upon release.

Sholi - Sholi, 2009

Memory is a fickle thing: memories shift and turn on their own as our pasts become something different in mind than they were in reality. Some may seem lost forever, only to appear in fleeting moments of subconscious clarity.

The story of Sholi began when Payam Bavafa and Jonathon Bafus started playing and writing music with friend Danny Milks while attending UC Davis. “Sholi was a nickname my dad gave my brother and me when we wrestled as kids. I wanted a Persian word that sounded nice in English, and Jon liked that one,” Bavafa says.

The trio played locally, releasing a three-song demo shortly before Bavafa relocated to San Francisco to work as an electrical engineer for an experimental neuroscience lab with a brilliant “mad” scientist. Bavafa spent a year and a half processing brain-waves and analyzing data from studies on sleep and memory. Over time, elements of his work trickled through to his songwriting. Theories of memory explored in the lab found their way thematically into early versions of songs such as “Spy in the House of Memories”, “All That We Can See”, and “Out of Orbit”.

Around this time, Bafus and Bavafa began playing with several different bass players, finally coming together with their old friend Eric Ruud. The band began playing new material live, often with the help of one of Ruud. previous bandmates, Greg Hagel on keyboards and percussion.

In 2006, the band sent self-recorded demos of the songs to Greg Saunier to enlist his help in the creation of a proper album. He responded with great interest, and pre-production began shortly thereafter via email. Saunier sent the band production notes on arrangements and sounds as he listened to the songs while on tour in Spain with his band Deerhoof.

Subsequently, the band booked time at New and Improved Studios in Oakland, where Saunier and engineer Eli Crews helped shape the initial sounds of the album. After 4 days of tracking, Sholi took the album home, deconstructing the recordings and spending the next year breathing new life into the songs in apartments, attics, and living rooms that doubled as makeshift studios throughout Northern California.

In late 2007, the band recorded a politically inspired 7″ entitled Hejrat featuring a re-interpretation of the title track, originally by 70. Iranian pop-diva Googoosh. The record was well-received by the Iranian-American community as well as American critics for its unifying and original concept, eventually leading The Believer magazine to pick up the song for their 2008 Music Issue.

Meanwhile, Saunier continued his involvement with the LP helping in the final mixing stages upon his return from tour in the Summer of 2008.

The result is an album that is as self-assured as it is introspective, as warmly familiar as it is unique, and as complex as it is digestible. Concepts of memory permeate the record, both lyrically and musically, as songs grapple with perspective and perception, conscience and consequence, understanding and upheaval. Interconnected ideas appear; songs often become self-referential, folding in upon themselves. Yet underneath the elaborate musical layers and vivid lyrical imagery, there is something straightforwardly timeless in this debut.

VA - Hava Narghile: Turkish Rock Music 1966-1975

Similar to the [now out of print] Turkish Delights compilation is this great collection of vintage psychedelic rock music from Turkey. With 22 tracks, spanning the years 1966-1975, this collection is a great introduction to the fanatastic, long-lost Middle Eastern acid rock scene. These bands raved it up in Istanbul nighclubs, blending the Western garage-psych rock of the era with Turkish folk influences (electic fuzz saz!), bellydancing beats, and all manner of "exotic" flourishes. Of the 17 artists on here, only a few names were already known to us, mainly from that aforementioned Turkish Delights lp or as the Turkish entries on the fab Love Peace & Poetry: Asian Psychedelic Music compilation. Those would be the amazing Mogollar (two tracks), guitar hero Erkin Koray, Mavi Isiklar, and Baris Manco. And none of their tracks are duplicated between this comp and those other two [and there's no overlap with anything on the more recent Turkish Love, Peace & Poetry volume either]. Of the many cuts on here, everyone will have their own favorites, certainly there's many killer ones. Dionysus' Bacchus Archives imprint has done a colorful job with the packaging, illustrated with promo photos and 7" sleeves. And every track gets a good paragraph of information, so by listening and reading you'll become hip to the history of the whole Turkish psych happenin'. Highly recommended!

Current 93 - Of Ruine or Some Blazing Starre (Reissue), 2007

‘Of Ruine Or Some Blazing Starre’ is the latest re-issue from Current 93’s highly impressive and startlingly diverse back catalogue. Originally released in 1994, ‘Of Ruine..’ saw Tibet and his stripped back assemblage of musicians delivering an album that was awash with simplistic charm and character, yet was as deeply and emotionally charged as anything that had come before it.

Aided by the ever-present Steve Stapleton, the multitalented Michael Cashmore, and Phoebe Cheshire who provided occasional vocal accompaniments, Tibet managed to skilfully construct an album brimming with subtle sounds and ideas which come together to produce an immensely dense and complex framework of lyrics, music and atmosphere. On initial listens ‘Of Ruine..’ seems to be simply an expansion of the folk-esque sound that Current 93 had started to be renowned for, and in simplistic terms this could be correct. And yet this album is so much more than that. It sees a true coming-of-age for Current 93. Tibet seems immensely comfortable with himself and his music, life and beliefs and this is projected through the immensely compelling essence of ‘Of Ruine..’.

Callisto - Providence, 2009


Formed in 2001, Callisto is a metal / progressive / experimental band from Turku, Finland. With their third album "Providence", a follow-up for the widely recognized debut "True Nature Unfolds" and highly acclaimed sophomore album "Noir", the Finnish five-piece has turned a new page in broadening musical expressions. The new album is also the debut for the band’s new vocalist Jani Ala-Hukkala, whose screaming and clean vocals mark a new element in the band’s sonic palette.

Their cathartically dim and characteristic works are the means for the band to draw from a more diverse and timeless sound. Callisto expand on the whole modern sludge genre innovators of Isis and likes with its subtle jazz leanings and experimentation with unconventional rock instruments. Callisto’s lyrics contain strong Christian themes with references to artists such as Trouble and Woven Hand.

"Providence" was produced, engineered and mixed by Jonas Olsson and mastered by Svante Forsbäck. The artwork is contributed by Martin Kvamme of Unit Delta Plus (Fantomas, Satyricon, Turbonegro).

Crëvecoeur - #1, 2007

Crëvecoeur's songs are mostly instrumental pieces, a tribute to the glorious days of soundtrack music, yet with a pop sensibility. Definitely something for fans of Morricone soundtrack music, Calexico or Black Heart Procession.

Kawabata Makoto - Rainbow of Love [2009]

Brand new solo record from one of the most prolific Japanese recording artists around right now. Most people will know Kawabata Makoto as the guitar wielding shredder from Acid Mother Temple. This brand new solo recording is a two piece epic of some of the most beautiful tones I've heard in a while. Side A's 'You Are From The Rainbow Over The Sea' is an piece of bowed beauty, taking you to a higher plain of consciousness. The B Side's 'Waiting For You Till The End Of The Rainbow' is just as cosmic as its predecessor with cascading waterfalls of tones washing over you again and again... kinda reminds me of some of the Inui series, which is probably some of my favourite material from Makoto. Edition of only 265 copies in screen printed white sleeves with artwork by Darryl Norsen.

The Juan MacLean - The Future Will Come [2009]

Although the Juan MacLean’s debut album, Less Than Human, featured plenty of guest contributions, it was ostensibly a solo project from former Six Finger Satellite guitarist John MacLean. The Future Will Come was constructed in a similar manner, and features a number of vocal and musical guests, including singer Nancy Whang and MacLean’s DFA label boss James Murphy. The first single from the record, the ebullient techno-house hybrid “Happy House,” was the first signifier of The Future Will Come’s buoyant tone, and MacLean describes it as “a disco inflected Human League sounding record.” Plenty of duets between MacLean and Whang feature, with the latter firmly establishing her role in the band during her time-off from touring with LCD Soundsystem.

Papercuts - You Can Have What You Want, 2009

Mono - Hymn to the Immortal Wind, 2009


1. Ashes In The Snow
2. Burial At Sea
3. Silent Flight, Sleeping Dawn
4. Pure As Snow
5. Follow The Map
6. The Battle Of Heaven
7. Everlasting Light

Just in time for their 10-year anniversary, MONO return with their fifth studio album, the absolutely massive Hymn To The Immortal Wind. The music is naturally majestic, with MONO's trademark wall of noise crashing beautifully against the largest chamber orchestra the band has ever enlisted. The instrumentation is vast, incorporating strings, flutes, organ, piano, glockenspiel and tympani into their standard face-melting set-up. While Hymn continues to mine the cinematic drama inherent in all of MONO's music, the dynamic shifts now come more from dark-to-light instead of quiet-to-loud. The maturity to balance these elements so masterfully has become MONO's strongest virtue - save for perhaps their uncanny ability to sound every bit like a plane crashing into a Beethoven concert.

Æthenor - Faking Gold & Murder, 2009

Third earth shattering outing for Vincent De Roguin (Shora), Stephen O'Malley (Sunn0))), KTL) and Daniel O'Sullivan (Guapo). For Faking Gold and Murder, the core trio is joined by percussionists Nicolas Field and Alex Babel, as well as renown guitarist Alexander Tucker and the inimitable David Tibet. Faking Gold is Æ’s heaviest outing, driven by a weighty low end and the full fury of Babel and Field’s free-wheeling drums. The trio’s electronics, guitar, Rhodes, and organ ride the waves of sound in a tightly-controlled blare, leaving plenty of space for Tibet’s declarations of the mystical and supernatural. Tibet is on top form here, rising out of the tempest at just the right moment, almost plain-spoken in places – grounding the squall at times, voicing the apocalypse at others.

Brooding, primeval, dark alchemical epics are full of a ferocious intensity, sounding more like a starlit night being ripped open by lightning than a musical group. Intelligent and primal, like a dæmonic workshop, battering up Pandemoniums and dreaming of gold and murder, Æthenor are spectacular.”- David Tibet

1900's - Kicks [2009]

Kicks features more sassy, infectiously catchy songs about Glasgow and girls in the main, but also references Mongolian warlords, bears, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, Baader-Meinhof and Scientology. Most of the songs on Kicks are anecdotes about ex, current, future and fictional girlfriends.The album was recorded at Edwyn Collins’ West Heath Yard studio in London and it was produced by Bernard Butler. Kicks is the sound of a group careering head first, inspired by where they come from and what they can potentially do, into further adventures in sound and visions. Inspiration was taken from everything from Scary Monsters/Golden Years-era Bowie and his work with Brian Eno & Tony Visconti to Jay-Z through to Hall & Oates, the chops of Hot Chocolate and even the folk licks of Richard Thompson. Sonically Kicks is a rock record, but 1990s' intention was to make it sound slightly alien, too. The album’s a non-stop assault of pop gems. “59” eulogises the 59 bus in Pollokshields, which comes approximately once per lifetime and goes from Narnia to Brigadoon via Pollokshields. As Michael, who sings it, explains "It’s the only bus you want to get on in Pollokshields, even if it’s going in the wrong direction. The song’s about me taking this bus and checking out the girls… with gammy eyes."1990s' vocal harmonies on this album have come into their own and lead vocal duties are shared amongst the group much more so than on Cookies. Michael sings four songs, Dino sings two and Jackie sings the rest. “Kickstrasse” features Jackie addressing German 1970s terrorist group Baader-Meinhof, with help from Kate Jackson (of The Long Blondes) on backing vocals. On “Everybody Please Relax” Jackie threatens to move to Hollywood and become a Scientologist. Michael and Dino hope that he doesn't.

Madlib - Speto Da Rua (Dirty Brasilian Crates Vol. 1) [2009]

Crate-digging has become somewhat of an art in the hip-hop world. Producers and beatsmiths constantly have to challenge themselves in digging deeper into vinyl archives, looking for breaks and potential samples that haven't yet been used and over-exploited by other producers. And while that may not seem so hard (your parents probably have a bundle of old LPs in the attic that could be sample gold), it's a lot tougher than you would think. But Madlib, a DJ, producer and emcee hailing from Oxnard, California, has consistently made the competition look like a bunch of chumps, releasing handfuls of beat tapes to the public each year. His most recent mix? Speto Da Rua, the first in a six-part series of Brazilian goodies.

Vibes - You God It [2009]

It’s not every day friends get together and decide to swim upstream, but sometimes a great notion deserves great emotion – and legitimate forward motion. Then: shit happens. And then later: Vibes. LA’s most recent sub-underground non-rock quartet are a confusing composite electric dream of DIY funk, stream-of-consciousness garage soul, and groping group groove. Their live shows to date have functioned like moveable parties; the audience is either just crashin’ the thing or looking for someone they know. Regardless, You God It is the band’s first recorded statement, a six song EP featuring the bulk of their live staples, from the dizzy jangle-anthem “Honeycomb” to the slinky pow-wow dance “Spirit Soul” through to the swaggering woodblocks ballad “Shake It Off.” Love is all around, take a look. Tracked live at Bored Fortress then mixed by Ged Gengras with boss organ overdubs by Cameron Stallones, Pro-dubbed tapes in hand-numbered J-cards with full-color collage art by Amanda. Edition of 100.

Sonic Youth - Sensational Fix [2009]

The iconic postpunk band Sonic Youth is best known for blurring musical genres and transcending the boundaries of rock guitar. Its members--Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley--have also, over the course of 27 years since they first started playing together, more quietly engaged in multidisciplinary solo efforts and collaborations with visual artists, filmmakers, designers and other musicians. What we're doing is always inventing itself. I have no terminology for it," according to Moore. This comprehensive 784-page volume--which includes two 7-inch records with unpublished songs by each member, album covers, band portraits and documentary photos, many of which have never been published before--is a must for fans and anyone seeking to connect the dots between New York's various cultural scenes. It features writings by band members and contributions by a host of other luminaries, including Richard Hell, Mike Kelley, Jutta Koether, Alan Licht, Lydia Lunch and John Miller."

Elvis Perkins In Dearland - Elvis Perkins In Dearland [2009]

XL Recordings is pleased to announce the forthcoming release from Elvis Perkins in Dearland. The album, self-titled, will be released on March 10, 2009. This album is the debut album for the band and at the same time is the follow up to Perkins' first release, the critically acclaimed Ash Wednesday.Elvis Perkins in Dearland's new eponymous album feels very much like the second line to his exquisitely melancholic and much-hailed solo debut Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday gained Elvis a dedicated and reverent following for its nuanced meditations on death and grief — many moments on that first record felt as if the listener had tip-toed into the intimate confines of a private elegy, enveloped in that wondrous, old-soul quality of Elvis' voice.There are still plenty of private moments on Elvis Perkins in Dearland, but Elvis is now joined by a talented trio of friends that toured with him in support of Ash Wednesday. Along with Elvis on guitar and lead vocals, Elvis Perkins in Dearland is Brigham Brough (upright bass, saxophone, vocals), Wyndham Boylan-Garnett (pump organ, guitar, harmonium, trombone, vocals), and Nick Kinsey (drums, percussion, banjo, clarinet, vocals). Many of the new songs on Elvis Perkins in Dearland were honed on the road by the four bandmates, whose natural ease with one another allowed them to constantly experiment with arrangements on the fly.Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Chris Shaw (Public Enemy, Bob Dylan, Ween) and Elvis Perkins In Dearland, the album was recorded in Upstate New York in the latter part of 2008. Shaw recorded and mixed the album as well."On this new record we wanted to capture the spirit of our performances," drummer Nick Kinsey said. "The challenge was to get down that spontaneity." Perkins says, "This album is faster and younger than Ash Wednesday. Being in a studio with three other creatives instead of just one was a new thing for me. It takes four times as long to decide everything... but in the end, this kind of interplay made for much good."

Tosca - No Hassle [2009]

No Hassle is the fifth full-length released by the duo, who are comprised of Richard Dorfmeister (of legendary trip-hoppers Kruder & Dorfmeister) and Austrian musician Rupert Huber. Whereas much of their previous material had Dorfmeister's dubby basslines up front, this album was developed as a more ambient project, combining submerged samples and live instrumentation to create a lush and immersive hour of music."It's our personal reaction to everything," explains Richard. "To all things that are pressuring you from outside, or internally, from every angle. It's sort of the ideal position to achieve, and it's the same idea behind the music: to achieve an hour where you feel hassle free."

Ducktails - Acres Of Shade [2009]

""Acres Of Shade" is a departure from past Ducktails zones. Mondanile turns away from his lofi bedroom pop vibes, moving towards synthesizer cycles. He does not sacrifice his youthful style and tropical nostalgia; just rethinks the way it is expressed. Drifting drones lift in the air. Features all new material: "White House With Green Shutters / Surfs Up". In an edition of 100 tapes with full color covers and printed labels."

Beirut - March of the Zapotec/Realpeople Holland, 2009

After the widely acclaimed 2007 album The Flying Club Cup, which hit many album of the year lists including the NME, Uncut, Q, The Sun and The Telegraph, the extremely talented young songwriter and musician Zach Condon returns with his third record under the guise of Beirut. The full-length album entitled March Of The Zapotec is comprised of two EPs. The first, and album namesake, is a foray into Mexican folk music with the help of an obscure small-town Mexican funeral band. The second is Holland, a bedroom electro-synth pop wonder, originally an idea for Zach s previous incarnation before Beirut, when he went by the name of Realpeople. -

Stuart & Caan - The Mayfly Dance [2009]

Stuart and Caan's The Mayfly Dance came to Knw-Yr-Own from England thanks to friends Little Wings and Devendra Banhart. After opening for the two bands on the Hair Fairies Tour, Banhart invited the gents to come over and play the United States. Needless to say, Stuart and Caan fell smartly into the middle of the new weird America musical movement, taking it all in (until they were deported). With pastoral guitars, heartbreaking melodies, and a rare sense of wide-eyed wonder, The Mayfly Dance spins a timeless Anglo-folk sound.

Grouper/City Center Split 7'', 2008

So super stoked to announce officially that there's some new jams on the way. In particular, a split 7" with new, exclusive songs from me and Grouper. I've talked about Grouper, my friend Liz's amazing music on maybe like 60% of my blog postings, so it's shouldn't be a big surprise that this I'm beyond overjoyed we've gotten to play some shows and now work on this record together. Liz's song is exclusive to this release, and recorded around the same time as her last amazing full-length "Dragging A Dead Deer Uphill". It's fucking mindblowing. My song is "This Is How We See In The Dark", which I wrote just for this release after checking out Liz's song and trying to write a counterpoint piece. I've been playing it live in every show since the end of the summer, so if you've seen me play at all, it might sound familiar. This demo recording was the first version of the song, and it's gotten a lot more refined/better since then, but it should give you an idea. Lots of tape manipulation on the vocals, muddy mishap vibe.

Crime In Choir - Gift Givers [2009]

Comprised of founding members of the original At The Drive-In (pianist Kenny Hopper and guitarist Jarrett Wrenn), as well as members of The Fucking Champs (drummer Tim Soete), Jonas Reinhardt (synth player Jesse Reiner + Kenny Hopper), and The Mass (saxophonist Matt Waters), Crime In Choir have an impressive pedigree and an even more impressive sound. Intent on reinvigorating and updating the genre for today’s discriminating, post-everything indie-rock listener, Crime In Choir’s 4th album, “Gift Givers”, expands on the complex interweaving of melody, composition and sound-scape heard on 2006’s “Trumpery Metier”. “Gift Givers” brings a complex suite of six songs that harkens back to the golden age of prog while leaping infinitely forward in textures, composition and grace.
