asperity (æˈspɛrɪtɪ) noun (plural) -ties
1. roughness or sharpness of temper
2. roughness or harshness of a surface, sound, taste, etc
3. a condition hard to endure; affliction
4. (physics) the elastically compressed region of contact between two surfaces caused by the normal force

“I was thinking about the concept of difficulty. Whether in life or in nature - of conflict, of being troubled. The idea of
friction. Also in geology, an asperity is some part of a faultline that doesn’t move which can create an earthquake,
which is quite an evocative concept.” Asperities is the fourth solo album by acclaimed Canadian
cellist Julia Kent. As the title suggests, this is a record born of conflict: internal, personal and global. Universal themes.
The build of pressure and the threat of violent release. Modern guilt. Modern fears.
Kent draws from a rich well of emotion, the pieces deceptively rendered, each feeling like a miniature dramatic
epic in its own right – sculpted and self-contained. Her work on recent film scores is very much in evidence. ... [read more]

Jaye Bartell’s move to Brooklyn, NY in 2013, as well as the work of Spalding Gray and Eileen Myles, heavily influence the content presented on his latest record, Light Enough. In his own words, “Resettlement is an implicit theme in much of the writing, and the process of making the album itself was an act of resettlement, finding out where I lived as a means of coming to live there.” Bartell spent about a year secluded in his Greenpoint bedroom, piecing together the intricate tunes and gentle melodies that furnish his new record. 

Originally from from Massachusetts, Jaye Bartell laid the groundwork for his music career after relocating to Asheville, NC in the early 2000’s. During this time, he began to play music among friends, parallel to his poetry and other writing endeavors, which included a reading/performance series and a small magazine. After relocating, again, to Buffalo, NY in 2006, Jaye joined up with the publishing collective House Press and released his first record, Feeling Better, Pilgrim, in the company of Buffalo musicians and writers. The record helped establish Jaye’s sound utilizing field recordings and manipulated loops, centered on vocal ... [read more]

Tim Hecker is a Canadian-based musician and sound artist, born in Vancouver. Since 1996, he has produced a range of audio works for Kranky, Alien8, Mille Plateaux, Room40, Force Inc, Staalplaat, and Fat Cat. His works have been described as “structured ambient”, “tectonic color plates” and “cathedral electronic music”. More to the point, he has focused on exploring the intersection of noise, dissonance and melody, fostering an approach to songcraft which is both physical and emotive. The New York Times has described his work as “foreboding, abstract pieces in which static and sub-bass rumbles open up around slow moving notes and chords, like fissures in the earth waiting to swallow them whole”. His Harmony in Ultraviolet received critical acclaim, including being recognized by Pitchfork as a top recording of 2006. Radio Amor was also recognized as a key recording of 2003 by Wire magazine. His work has also included commissions for contemporary dance, sound-art installations, as well as various writings. He currently resides in Montreal.

Pierre Bastien’s is a french gentleman born 1953 who builds his own machineries, at the cross between music and visual art, that blends live trumpet sounds with screen projections of on-site, mechanical sound sculptures in a very poetic way. His work is described as “a timeless sounding orchestra, both futuristic and slightly dada, conjuring ancient traditions in its surprisingly sensuous music.”
Bastien has been called a “mad musical scientist with a celebrity following” by The Guardian. Collaborating in the past with filmmaker Pierrick Sorin, fashion designer Issey Miyake, singer and composer Robert Wyatt and Aphex Twin (who released three of his albums on his label Rephlex) to name a few, he is one of the most influential experimental musicians working in the field. In 1986 he formed his own self made one man orchestra, Mecanium and made over 20 records over the years.


"Pierre Bastien uses several tiny cameras to project his Meccano-driven contraptions onto a large screen. Although we can see little wheels depressing organ keys, on the screen it seems we are in some giant factory, where machines of unguessable size perform cumbersome operations ... [read more]

Zun Zun Egui formed in Bristol in late 2008 – Mauritian guitarist and singer Kushal Gaya met and started making music with Japanese keyboard player Yoshino Shigihara after they had both moved to the UK and a core group of musicians soon formed around them. A love for experimentation, free jazz, fusion, DIY culture, throwing parties and playing wild shows was the glue that bonded the outfit together. After an early clutch of raw and experimental EPs, they focused their song-writing talents and mastery of many styles to create a recognisable Zun Zun Egui sound which included tropicalia, punk funk, Afrobeat, Ethio jazz and no wave. All of these varied disciplines were marshalled to produce their first album “Katang” which was widely hailed as one of the most exciting debuts of 2011. Even for a band as exploratory and talented as ZZE though, the step up in terms of songwriting and inspiration since “Katang” is astounding and it is clear that Shackles’ Gift looks like being one of the most unique and thrilling records that will be released in 2015.

Produced by Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons, “Shackles’ Gift” is the album that Zun Zun Egui have always threatened to deliver and we always believed ... [read more]

The new album from Lee Ranaldo and the Dust is an exclusive acoustic record released worldwide by El Segell
del Primavera. Lee Ranaldo needs no introduction: founding member of Sonic Youth, collaborator of artists such
Glenn Branca and William Hooker, Lee is considered one of the greatest guitar players of the last 30 years.
Just after the hiatus of Sonic Youth Lee started a new adventure together with The Dust, as a result they have already
released two critically acclaimed records on Matador and have toured for the last three years around the
world.

Acoustic Dust” tries to reflect the most delicate side of this project. The band often plays acoustic sets during their
tours, so it seemed like a good idea to record an album without the electric side of The Dust. The result is a great
album of Ranaldo s compositions together with some cover songs (Revolution Blues” by Neil Young, “Bushes and
Briars” by Sandy Denny and “You Just May Be The One” by The Monkees).

The record was recorded last year in Barcelona during some free dates in the middle of a European tour, with the

Eric Chenaux is a true post-modern troubadour, with a body of solo work documented across five albums released on the Constellation label since 2006, centering around Chenaux's dextrous, fried guitar playing juxtaposed with a gorgeously clear and lyrical singing voice. An ingenious recombinant use of traditional folk and consort music tropes in earlier albums has over time evolved into a wholly original form of balladry, shot through with a singular vernacular of improvised electric and nylon-string guitar excursions.

Kill the Vultures have a nocturnal, urban sound, which is undeniably avant garde, yet rooted in the traditions of hip-hop. In addition to their American audience, vocalist Crescent Moon and producer Anatomy have cultivated a sizeable fan base in Europe, where they headlined four successful tours, garnered praise from Rolling Stone, Les Inrocks, and Blogotheque and had a “Hip-hop Album of the Year” cover story in respected Italian music magazine, Blow Up. Before KTV, Moon and Anatomy were part of hip-hop group Oddjobs, a member of the Third Earth crew along with Jean Grae, Mr. Len (Company Flow), and Juggaknotts. They have toured with rap acts De La Soul, Talib Kweli, DJ Shadow, Buck 65, Lyrics Born, Atmosphere, and more.

SACRI CUORI are proud to announce that their new record, DELONE, is going to be released on Glitterbeat Records on May the 22nd 2015.

DELONE is a trip in that thin line where dreams and memories collide, and feed each other. It is about Italy and the world.
It features all the Sacri Cuori enlarged family, with special contributions by Evan Lurie, Marc Ribot, Steve Shelley, Howe Gelb, Dan Stuart, Hugo Race, Sonido Gallo Negro and several others.
It features the great voice of Carla Lippis on several songs and also an appearance from Emmanuelle Sigal.

Sacri Cuori, Fellini’s bastard children, are on the road again. Hailing from Romagna, Italy, the band is led by guitarist/producer Antonio Gramentieri and plays instrumentally topographical music that mirrors the terrain they actually experience, whether it be a Rimini beach full of nostalgia and desire or the Mojave desert in the dead of winter.
Sacri Cuori have created a stunning cinematic ouevre over their own records and in the meantime they have also been choosed as a live&studio band by: Richard Buckner, Howe Gelb, Dan Stuart (Green on Red), Hugo Race, Robyn Hitchcock, Woody Jackson, ... [read more]

Father Murphy is an Italian trio comprised of Reverend freddie Murphy (vocals, guitar), Chiara Lee (vocals, keyboards, chinese percussions) and Vittorio Demarin (drums, viola, vocals). Born in Treviso, northern Italy, from the ashes of freddie’s several previous musical projects, Father Murphy with just one album and a plethora of ep’s and limited releases became one of the most mysterious and enigmatic musical entities coming out of Italy. If their first album Six Musicians getting unknown was still somewhat rooted in twisted psychedelic pop and sounded vaguely related to Os Mutantes and Italian psych pop masters Jennifer Gentle, the new record is a bold statement and a significant step ahead - out of every familiar musical genre and right into the darkness. Recorded in San Crisostomo in Bombanella church between the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, And He told us to turn to the sun maybe was born like a rather weird attempt to a concept album about religion, but surely sounds like a collection of dark, foreboding songs that crawl and twist and hiss like that old biblical serpent. 
Think of Gnostic masses, kabbalistic chanting, chiming little bells, tinny Gregorian-like drones played on toy-keyboards and ... [read more]

Josephine Foster is a modern American folk singer-songwriter and musician from Colorado. As an adolescent she worked as a funeral and wedding singer, and aspired to become an opera singer. Several years later she abandoned the idea and began to record demos of her songs, resulting in the early recordings There are Eyes Above (2000), an album of ukulele accompanied songs strongly influenced by Tin Pan Alley, and a short album of children's songs, Little Life (2001). For several years she worked as a singing teacher in Chicago, recording and performing with a variety of musical acts on the side including Born Heller, a duo with free jazz-bassist Jason Ajemian, and The Childrens Hour a pop band formed with songwriter Andrew Bar. In 2004 joined by her occasional backing band The Supposed (Brian Goodman on guitar and Rusty Peterson on drums) she released an album of psychedelic rock called 'All the Leaves Are Gone' which has drawn comparison to Patti Smith and Jefferson Airplane[1]. The songs on her first solo studio album 'Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead You' (2005) evoke early American folk and blues forms of the early 20th century. 'A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' released in 2006, features unorthodox interpretations of 19th century German art-songs. ... [read more]

Tom Brosseau has announced the release of new album North Dakota Impressions, the 3rdin
a trilogy, following Grass Punk (2014) and Perfect Abandon (2015). The records collectively
take the listener on a journey through Tom’s homelands full of memories, imaginings,
longings for a place, a home. It's a record full of light and shade, but ultimately hope.
As Tom explains:
"My sense of home is probably the dearest thing I hold. I work to preserve it. I go back into
my memories and dreams of where I grew up and I explore, not as a detective but a
cartographer. Noting each item and each room I am able to keep everything alive, and when
everything is alive it is glorious. So daily I roam through any place or structure I've ever been.
I visit with people that have long since been dead. I sit in a park with my favorite weather.
Think of North Dakota Impressions as the third and final wing of a newer building set off
aways from the old part of the museum. There's plenty of space here to move about, the
light is always just how you want it to be, look and you will find that the dioramas have
shifted ever so slightly in ... [read more]

Jerusalem In My Heart (JIMH) has been a live audio-visual happening since 2005, with Montréal-based producer and musician Radwan Ghazi Moumneh at its core. Moumneh is a Lebanese national who has spent a large part of his adult life in Canada and has been a fixture of the Montréal independent music community from his early days as guitarist in various notable 90s bands to his tireless activity as a sound engineer and producer over the last decade. Moumneh is also active in the Beirut and Lebanese experimental music scenes, where he spends a few months every year. 

FULL BIO

With performances occurring 1-3 times per year, no two Jerusalem In My Heart events have ever been the same: configurations have ranged from 2 to 24 participants, with varying degrees of theatrical stage action alongside a film/video component. Moumneh's vocals and purposefully blown-out sonic sensibility have been the consistent thread, but the music of JIMH has never repeated itself either – one of the reasons Moumneh has resisted any official documentation or definitive recording of the project over the past eight years. At long last, in 2012 Moumneh cleared time and mental space to record a song cycle that cements ... [read more]

Debut album from L.A. Salami AKA Papa Stokely AKA The New Wave Slave… ‘Dancing With Bad Grammar’ is set for release on August 26th.
Having only picked up the guitar a few years ago after being given one for his 21st birthday L.A. Salami recorded the album in one week at Urchin Studios in Hackney, London (“I wanted to get it live; I’m not interested in the tracking thing”).
Working with engineer Dan Cox and producer Matt Ingram, who he was introduced to by old friend and touring partner Lianne Le Havas, L.A. has produced an album of 11 eclectic and exquisite tracks.
The first taste taken from the album is the single ‘The City Nowadays’; an energetic tumble of ideas and influences, mixing beat poetry, chain-gang blues, hip-hop and pithy one-liners. As L.A. explains, “I call my music postmodern blues. I’ve always loved the blues, and I think of this album as my version of blues songs. ‘The City Nowadays’ is like that.” See the video here.
Alongside the single are the more folk tinged tracks ‘Day To Day’, on which he plays harmonica like he was born to it, ‘Why Don’t You Help Me’ and ‘I Can’t Slow Her Down’ – both beautiful folk songs in the Nick Drake tradition which this brand new guitarist plays with astonishing ... [read more]

Nicholas Krgovich is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known for his work with No Kids, Gigi and P:ano.  He has been releasing records under various monikers since P:ano’s acclaimed chamber pop debut, WHEN IT’S DARK AND IT’S SUMMER (2002).  This led to his recordings with the girl group inspired Gigi, the icy displacement of the R&B informed No Kids, and most recently the singular pop dreams released under his own name.  Even though the material is often wildly diverse, there is an unmistakable sense of Krgovich’s deep commitment to exploring the endless possibilities of pop, his discerning ear for sonic detail, and an ambition that willfully borders on the absurd.

With songs that owe as much to the Great American Songbook as to perennial favorites like Sade, Prefab Sprout and The Blue Nile, Krgovich has been creating a rich musical universe comprised of intricate vocal melodies, lush orchestral arrangements, layers of analog synths, slinky guitars and tight rhythms of the human (and inhuman) variety. 

He has toured extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia with his various projects, and has collaborated with artists such as Mount Eerie, Deradoorian, Nite ... [read more]

Sin Ropas has always made the familiar strange, creating postpartum pop that unravels and spins out in a shatter of rusty beats, scratchy vocal harmonies, raw guitar, found sounds, made-up instruments, and electronic experimentation. It has the timbre of lost love and the redemption that follows it. If this all sounds a bit uncomfortable, that's because it is–their music is at once longing and revelatory while also unnerving and confounding.

On Mirror Bride, Sin Ropas’ fuzz and blur is tightened into something more sparse and rangy thanks to mixing by Brian Deck (Red Red Meat, Califone, Modest Mouse). These are bright, searing, imperfect songs that, as the title suggests, may seep into those places that you've been trying to forget or to hide. There’s a catharsis in its splattered slow party of music, in its untethered rhythms and evaporating melodies, music that suggests that there’s more than what we’ve seen or will ever see. Mirror Bride's beauty reveals itself slowly and evokes the kind of experience you didn't even know you were missing.

Brooding electronics and classical sound sources combine in the integrated sound world of Murcof. He is a very modern composer, who utilizes technology to make epic, moving suites of music with a spiritual undertow. He draws on minimalism, post modernism and baroque music to create music that moves the mind and heart. His ear for detail and undulating tempos as well as his sense of space are heightened by the themes of life, death and eternity that his work touches on. Composers such as Arvo Pärt, Henryk Górecki and Giya Kancheli are all suitable comparisons.
His work draws on his childhood exposure to pre-20th century classical music and his passion for electronic pioneers like Jean-Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream as a teenager, as well as his experiments in noise with his pre-Murcof doom/avant garde outfit, Elohim. He has released 3 critically acclaimed albums and an EP on The Leaf Label. The groundbreaking album Martes album (2002) is an established classic of minimal electronic composition. All these elements swarm together in his current phase of monumental sound construction which integrates acoustic, analogue and digital elements seamlessly.
Live performances over the years have included a site specific performance at Greenwich ... [read more]
