[Mexico / The Leaf Label]

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 4 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 Planetarium (in collaboration with the Royal Astronomer), Montreaux Jazz Festival (collaboration with Talvin Singh & Erik Truffaz) and L’Auditori at Sonar Festival in Barcelona (with the pianist Francesco Tristano). In 2008 Murcof toured a new work called Oceano in collaboration with classical musicians BCN216 and light sculptor Flicker.

[Can / Constellation]

Following the release of Eric Chenaux’s last album Say Laura (2022), The Guardian wrote “the Canadian songwriter has one of the all-time great singing voices in popular music, an intensely romantic Chet Baker-ish instrument that seems to float with piercing direction, like a paper aeroplane thrown hard through mist.” With Uncut describing his songcraft “as delicate and lovely as a rare orchid” and Record Collector praising the album’s “sublime alien balladry” such are the accolades that have accrued to Chenaux’s unique and consummately uncompromising solo music for well over a decade now.

Delights Of My Life opens a new chapter for the singer/guitarist and formally introduces the Eric Chenaux Trio, with Toronto-based musicians Ryan Driver on Wurlitzer organ and Phillipe Melanson on electronic percussion. Driver is a longtime collaborator, appearing on several of Chenaux’s solo albums (even embedded into the very title of the 2010 masterpiece Warm Weather With Ryan Driver). Melanson has a long list of involvements that include Bernice, Joseph Shabason, and U.S Girls, and a recent release with his Impossible Burger project on Chenaux’s own experimental label Rat-drifting, but this marks the first fulsome involvement between the two as players on a recording.

In many ways Delights Of My Life also picks up right where Chenaux’s previous album left off, in its subversions of a classic, timeless jazz-inflected balladry, while the interplay of the trio formation indeed unfurls many new delights. Recording together at Chenaux’s spartan home studio in rural France, Driver’s harmonically warped organ and Melanson’s electroacoustic sampling and percussion hold time in newfound ways. Where previously Chenaux relied on a freeze/sustain pedal and minimalist rhythmic triggers to generate both pulse and chordal foundations, Melanson now paints timekeeping with expressive and intricate colourations, through live deployments of fluid sampled percussion (including orchestral timbres like timpani, kettle drums, and woodblock) that blur the boundaries between acoustic and electronic. Driver also ramps up his role in the song arrangements (prefigured in his support playing on Say Laura), teasing out chords and melodic filigree on Wurlitzer that percolate more prominently with Chenaux’s signature fried guitar solos and succulent singing. Both trio members add dulcet backing vocals, most notably on the 10-minute tour-de-force of fuzzed and ring-modulated swing “This Ain’t Life” that opens the record. All seven songs on the album groove and sway, simmer and sparkle, like nothing in the inestimable Chenaux discography to date.

Chenaux’s tunes have the uncanny ability to sound like jazz standards; songs you feel you’ve heard before, though certainly never quite like this. Yet these are of course all originals, compositionally and interpretively, bent through an inimitable avant/out-music lens. Delights Of My Life conveys warm familiarity, shot through with the exuberantly experimental subversion and playful, even mischievous, iconoclasm that continues to mark Chenaux as defiantly, virtuosically, and genially one-of-kind.

Such is the degree to which Richard Dawson has drawn down long drafts from the whirlpools of Elemental North Eastern Archetypes, he may now be one himself. Fearless in his research and willingness to follow his inspiration, Dawson has created an impressive catalogue of music and storytelling steeped in both ancient myths and contemporary dread. A fog of sickness, trauma and mute inevitability inhabits these records and is often expressed in the havoc with which Dawson's hands produce sounds from his long-suffering guitar, an instrument as bruised, individual and indefatigable as its owner.

Pop in your earpiece, close your eyes and embrace the wonders (and horrors) of augmented reality and prepare to travel 500 years into the future as Richard Dawson returns with…The Ruby Cord. These seven tracks plunge us into an unreal, fantastical and at times sinister future where social mores have mutated, ethical and physical boundaries have evaporated; a place where you no longer need to engage with anyone but yourself and your own imagination. It’s a leap into a future that is well within reach, in some cases already here.

ALBUM / 2020
Dawson introduces us to grand themes through small lives. His are portraits of human beings struggling with recognisable (and dare we say it, relatable) concerns, conflicts and desires, each reminding us that tragedy and gallows humour are not mutually exclusive, and that the magical can sit next to the mundane. Lyrically it is by far Dawson’s hardest-hitting and unflinchingly honest album to date. It is his poetic masterwork.
Within, we find disgruntled civil servants dreaming of better days, anxiety-addled joggers listlessly searching Zoopla for houses they cannot afford in their spare time, amateur footballers who think they’re Lionel Messi and beleaguered pub landlords battling rising floodwaters.
Here is life, in all its strange and wonderful ways.

Getting into an album by Cyril Cyril is being invited to a party where you thought you didn't know anyone, only to realize that this chap’s gal is your bro’s cuz, and leave with everyone's cell. Their music seems familiar because it's not deaf to its neighbors, in the broadest sense : Geneva, their
lair, Europe, their playground as a duo, and the world, their grocery store. There’s plenty in those two heads, but just the two of them on stage. Cyril Yeterian fiddles with a polyglot banjo and catches his tangy voice on the fly with pedals. Cyril Bondi hauls around a huge drum kit -voted wackiest of the decade, covered in sonic shells and the occasional pad. And lo and behold, they're both singing, for our most happy confusion.

For their third Born Bad album, they have invited two lads from Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp, Inès Mouzoune, multi-instrumentalist from Amami, and Violeta Garcia’s cello on Le Futur ça marche pas. Genosidra, aka Carlos Quebrada, who crafts club delicacies in Bogotá, mixed heavy, full gravy, a challenge given the quantity of material, recorded as a family affair at Insub Studio.

Antonio Raia in “Asylum” (Clean Feed Records)
The tenor saxophone explored to its limits, its voice "undressed from the superfluous" and used as a refuge, a shelter, an “asylum” as the title suggests. 
Conceived and recorded in a 17th century ex-orphanage in the heart of Naples, and retaining all of the volcanic feel, intensity and heart wrenching beauty of the city, "Asylum" is the first work by Raia in three years and sounds as something unique, very different from anything he did before (included his collaborations with the likes of Adam Rudolph, Elio Martusciello, Chris Corsano, Alvin Curran). 
Moving around (and playing with the space between) 10 microphones displaced in the orphanage refectory by sound engineer/electro-acoustic composer Renato Fiorito, Raia's saxophone is raw, impetuous as well as poetic and romantic. His compositions are based on graphic scores or written notes, frequency indications or pure improvisations; in a few episodes he deals with the musical tradition of his hometown, offering very personal, almost abstract (and somehow freed of the weight of history), versions of classics "Torna a Surriento" and "Dicitencello Vuje". And he does the same with the jazz standard "Misty". 
The tracks feature no effects, overdubs or post-production tricks, the nakedness of the sound being as much an aesthetic as a cultural and "political" choice for an album that aims to reflect the human search for empathy, freedom and joy ("Refugees", "The Children In The Yard").

Gus Fairbairn, aka Alabaster DePlume, has a pocketful of phrases that he uses all the time whether he’s walking down the street or holding court with musicians and an audience. For a long time, the Mancunian would tell anyone who’d listen that they were doing very well. More recently, it’s another phrase which has a similar effect and which belies his unwavering commitment to personal vulnerability and collective politics: “Don’t forget you’re precious.

A process that is people-first not product-first ensures that his music is unique; often gem-like. Alabaster DePlume’s songs are built on sonorous circular melodies and luminous tones that transmit calmness and generosity in warm waves–unless they’re raging against complacency and the every day inhumanity of end times capitalism. Most importantly, he brings a valuable transparency to his work. “This is what I’m really doing,” he says. “I want to talk about why I’m doing this, and how I’m doing this.”

Mary Lattimore (Usa / Ghostly International) is a Los Angeles-based musician who uses her concert grand
harp to conjure up beautifully abstracted forms that evoke a host of memories, landscapes and allusions.
Across a breadth of recordings, collaborations and art commissions her music explores a realm of wordless
narratives and indefinite travelogues, where – with the help of effects and occasional vocals - extended
harp improvisations morph into spectral songforms. In live performance she reveals the impressionist
magic of her chosen instrument, blurring classical technique and ambient electronics to beguiling effect. In
2018 Mary released Hundreds of Days, her second LP on Ghostly International, as well as a collaborative
album with Meg Baird entitled Ghost Forests (Three Lobed).

“This mysterious and beautiful music by Alessandro Stefana entrances me. Its fragility and tenderness bring
comfort and understanding. It reflects the unique sensitivity of its creator, who has drawn on his experience to
bring this profoundly moving, and life affirming record to the world.”
- Polly Jean Harvey, Executive producer
Ipecac Recordings proudly presents the eponymous solo album by guitarist, producer and composer Alessandro
“Asso” Stefana, due for release on 17th May 2024, with PJ Harvey as Executive Producer.
The musical journey of Alessandro 'Asso' Stefana, hailing from Brescia, Italy, is a compelling one, and if you’ve
heard PJ Harvey’s The Hope Six Demolition Project, Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane, Calexico's El Mirador, or Micah P.
Hinson's I Lie to You, Penguin Cafe's Rain Before Seven..., or listened to Guano Padano’s output on Ipecac, you’ll
have encountered him.
After years of dedication, this record holds special meaning for its creator and is something he considers
“extremely intimate and precious.” As Asso put it, “it’s not as much the time spent in the creative process as the
long journey of refinement and awareness that accompanied each stage of its development”. In this journey
Asso was joined by none other than PJ Harvey who - he says - was “crucial” to his process of seeking the “true
essence of each composition… Polly gave me the strength to bring this project to fruition.”
The influence of an eclectic array of genres, spanning from rootsy folk and primitive blues to soundtracks,
psychedelia, desert ballads and ambient explorations, seeps into his solo output; however, this latest album
uproots preconceptions of his work to date. Asso explores new realms of creativity, trusting the process and
allowing “the skills of being a musician to give way to an overall vision and putting them at the service of the
music itself.” Consequently, this record presents Asso as we have not yet heard him before, in a vulnerable and
authentic expression of his talent.
Each track across the album fades in and out like a sonic vignette or fragments of emotion situated in sound. A
variety of instruments from different epochs emerge on the album, blending together in musical alchemy. From
relatively obscure or nearly forgotten instruments of the early 1900s, such as the Marxophone, to pedal steel and
lap steel guitars, tape echoes, psychedelic organs and folk fingerpicking.
On the second half of the record Roscoe Holcomb’s voice appears, taken from the precious Smithsonian
Folkways archives. “It is a powerful and moving testimony to a bygone era… I have always been fascinated by
the idea of mixing folk, a music so intimately linked to the land, with something that goes beyond the boundaries
of the genre.” One of Asso’s aims for this album was for it to feel “suspended between earth and sky” - the
interplay between decades old recordings with new improvisations evokes feelings of being grounded and
untethered at the same time.
At the age of 42, Asso is a highly regarded musical figure, respected and known for the innovation he brings to
his craft. On Alessandro “Asso” Stefana, he challenges himself to move beyond his comfort zone, and the result
is a record which speaks to his ambition and restlessness as a creative spirit.
Having embarked on a multitude of musical ventures, both as a solo artist and a collaborator, Asso has released
several albums that showcase his virtuosity as a guitarist, his versatility as a multi-instrumentalist, his
compositional ingenuity, and his acumen as a producer. His contributions have firmly established him as one of
Italy's preeminent guitarists, earning admiration and reverence from peers and aficionados alike.
In addition to those collaborations, his extensive work with acclaimed Italian songwriter Vinicio Capossela spans
over two decades, marked by collaborative albums and live performances worldwide. Most notably, his
production of Capossela's Da Solo, which achieved gold record status in Italy.
With his band Guano Padano (who have previously released two albums through Ipecac), Asso has produced a
series of cherished records featuring collaborations with luminaries like Alessandro Alessandroni and Bill Frisell.
His extensive discography also includes the solo album Poste e Telegrafi, where the album's titular track was
notably covered by Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog on the album Party Intellectuals, re-titled “Digital Handshake”.
Asso’s art extends beyond instrumentation to composition, with original soundtracks for films such as “Billy” by
Emilia Mazzacurati and “I Pionieri” by Luca Scivoletto, as well as contributions to the soundtracks of “Vengeance”

[Canada / Leaf]

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. While
cinematic in scope, there is nothing as trite as a Hollywood ending here. There is tension and darkness, the edges
cracked and frayed. “A lot of the melodic material is based on semitones,” Julia elaborates. “So in the music there is an
inherent sense of dissonance; that things are too close for comfort. More generally, it seems like a particularly dark
time in the world right now, and I think that definitely had an influence too.”
The album was recorded, produced and mixed in its entirety by Julia in her New York studio. This method of working lends the record a sense of isolation that carries a powerful resonance in our modern over-connected world. “I really like the autonomy of working alone,” she says. “I feel that I can transmit something emotionally that I might not be able to if there were someone else involved.”
Utilising looped cello, electronics and found sounds, Kent creates a world where the technological and the organic
merge in perfect symbiosis, the layers of sound peeling back to reveal a beating, bloody human heart at its centre. “I did
quite a lot of processing of the cello sound and used different electronic textures,” she explains of her technique.

 “I was trying to get away from the acoustic cello sound and “I was trying to get away from the acoustic cello sound and find one that was more textural and more expressive of the
Throughout the plaintive strains of opener ‘Hellebore’, the prowling grace of ‘The Leopard’, the elegant restraint of ‘Heavy
Eyes’ and the immersive closer ‘Tramontana’, Kent’s cello evokes romance and loss, a yearning for simplicity. This is the
soundtrack to the transitory nature of life and the inevitability of death.
Vancouver-born and New York-based, Julia Kent rose to prominence with Rasputina and Antony & The Johnsons. Her
extensive résumé includes recent work with Swans, Aidan Baker, Rachel Grimes, Rutger Zuydervelt, Barbara
Morgenstern, Library Tapes and Khan of Finland.
Kent has also composed extensively for film, theatre and dance. Her cinematic work includes the documentaries The
Boxing Girls of Kabul and Rwanda, L’Impossible Pardon, American feature A Short History of Decay, short films Doppio
Urlo, and the award-winning Oasis. Her music also was used in Paolo Sorrentino’s 2011 film This Must Be The Place. As a
solo artist she has toured extensively in Europe and North America and performed at festivals including Primavera Sound,
Reeperbahn, Unsound, and Meltdown.

Delay (2007)
Green And Grey (2011)
Character (2013)
Asperities (2015)
Temporal (2019)

On Character:
“A listening experience of nearly cavernous depth and poetic beauty”4/5 AllMusic
“This sublime performer has found her true voice…inspiring the possibility that every subsequent album will be her
greatest” A Closer Listen

“Emotionally and stylistically direct… To achieve such directness and freedom of expression through the cello – to many
listeners an instrument so closely tied to its past and cultural saturation – is no mean feat” Dummy
On Green And Grey:

“Arguably the prettiest album of the year” 4.5/5 eMusic

“Kent surrounds a fabric of gorgeous cello melodies with excerpts of burbling brooks and chirping cicadas, letting the
sounds sit closely but distinctly in one same ruminative space. Strangely and surprisingly intimate” Pitchfork

“Julia Kent plays cello with the painfully bitter sweet pensive finesse for which it was designed” The Silent Ballet

Short Bio
After years of playing cello with a myriad of artists and ensembles, Julia Kent retired to her Lower East Side apartment to make a solo record inspired by touring and the disjunctions of travel. Incorporating multitracked cello, omnichord, and field recordings from airports around the world, her "lovely, melancholy," compositions, full of "aching romanticism ... rich melodicism, and detailed arrangements," make up /Delay/, her solo debut, released by Shayo Records in Europe and Important Records in North America.

She has performed solo in Europe, the UK, New York, and Canada, using live looping and effects to create layers of melody and rhythm on the cello. Of her appearance at the Donau Festival in Austria, the Wire said: “Cellist Julia Kent's set, in which she sampled and played over herself, was a thing of miniature beauty.” Lucid Culture described a recent New York appearance as: "...riveting and frequently cinematic...moving from trippy, echoey and atmospheric to stark and haunting..."

Singer, writer, poet, and expressionist Abdullah Miniawy became, in the wake of the revolution, an artistic emblem for Egypt’s agitated youth. As a writer, his lyrics have left a mark in the Middle East region, notably during the Arab Spring, where they were displayed in places like the Yarmouk camp in Syria. Alongside Peter Corser on the saxophone and Karsten Hochapfel on the cello, he is sure to grip audiences as the complete band.
Their self-titled debut, released in January, serves as a sample of what can be achieved on the stage. Le Cri du Caire won the ‘Album de Musiques du Monde’ award at the Victoires du Jazz for their debut album. The virtuoso Sufi chant, whispered or shouted over a carpet of hypnotic loops, leads the listener into a trance-like mystical journey. Spirituality and freedom come together in the same desire for invention and sharing, to carry the hopes of peoples whose voices have been muzzled in the face of political, social and religious oppression.

Nine new songs recorded in collaboration with Barcelona producer Raul ‘Refree’ Fernandez in New York City and Barcelona between April 2015 and April 2016, with help from many of the players associated with my recent music, and some new friends as well: The Dust – Alan Licht, Steve Shelley, Tim Luntzel are all featured, as are Nels Cline, Kid Millions, and Sharon Van Etten, who sings on 6 songs including a duet with me on ‘Last Looks,’. Six of the nine lyrics on the record were written in collaboration with American author Jonathan Lethem. Cover and album art by Richard Prince.

This album extends the work of my previous two ‘song’ albums and moves into some rich new sonic territories and production techniques, experimenting with electronic beats and samples alongside the live players. I feel it’s the best thing I’ve done, and certainly one of the most inspirational album projects I’ve been involved with.

A feature documentary, HELLO HELLO HELLO : LEE RANALDO : ELECTRIC TRIM, on the year-long making of the album by filmmaker Fred Riedel is now screening at film festivals.

In life and music, Emma Tricca is an explorer. Just as ‪Davey Graham set sail for Morocco and ‪Vashti Bunyan for the Outer Hebrides in search of their elusive ‪muse, Rome-raised singer-songwriter Tricca has journeyed to London, New York, Texas and further afield to seek the heart of her own music. And like those renowned voyagers, she’s returned with a set of songs that refresh the tired old folk form. Tricca’s new album St Peter – created with a cast of supporting artists including global icon ‪Judy Collins, ‪Sonic Youth’s ‪Steve Shelley and Dream Syndicate guitarist Jason Victor – takes a bracing plunge into the unknown, leaving the folksinger tag far behind with a rolling collection of reverie-inducing raw diamonds.

It was encouragement from ‪Pentangle legend ‪John Renbourn that started Tricca on her lifelong path. An aspiring young player, she met Renbourn after a solo gig in Rome and impressed him with her fresh-cut songs. A move to the UK was inevitable, gigging around folk clubs first in Oxford and later in London, honing her craft as a songwriter and a fingerstyle guitarist. Extended stays in New York and Texas followed, before Tricca returned to London to begin work on her first melancholic masterpiece, 2009’s crystalline long-player Minor White.

The album was released on Bird Records, an offshoot of Finders Keepers run by husband and wife team ‪Jane Weaver and ‪Andy Votel, who’d been thrilled by Tricca’s talent (and her Italian leather boots) at the Green Man Festival in 2006. They secured her a show at ‪Jarvis Cocker’s Meltdown Festival in London, ensuring international exposure, a major European tour and a run of shows with her old friend Renbourn.

Five years later Tricca released Relic, an album even more poised and precise than its predecessor. Scoring rave reviews across the board – 4 stars in Record Collector and Mojo, 5 in Time Out – the album added gentle percussion and plaintive orchestration to the established pattern of hushed guitar and heartfelt vocals. A collaboration with longtime friend and guitar wizard Jason McNiff led to 2017’s sparkling Southern Star EP, while a song on the soundtrack of Patrick Stewart-starring US indie film Match raised her profile. But encouraged by Weaver – who urged her to ‘explore the weirdness’ in her music – Emma Tricca was hungry for a new challenge.

The road to St Peter began with a chance meeting at South by Southwest between Tricca and producer and musician Jason Victor, and the formation of an instant friendship. During a Skype call one Christmas morning the pair decided to start work on a new project together, hauling in ‪Sonic Youth drummer ‪Steve Shelley and New York session player Pete Galub to help Tricca explore the rougher sound that was in her head. Recorded near-live at Echo Canyon West in Hoboken, the album draws on crunchy country rock, homespun psychedelia, Morricone soundtracks, New York underground grit and English folk grandeur to weave a wholly unique and surprising spell.

More musical guests soon joined the party – gruff songwriting hero ‪Howe Gelb put in a brief cameo, while Tricca was able to live out a childhood fantasy by inviting ‪Judy Collins to appear on the album’s penultimate cut, Solomon Said. As a teenage folkie Tricca had recorded one of Collins’s TV performances onto VHS, and worn the tape out trying to mimic her picking style. Now they were working together, on perhaps the album’s most startling, transporting track.

Released on April 2018 by London-based indie label Dell’Orso, St Peter is the culmination of a life steeped in music, a journey as much for the listener as its creator. Climb on board.

Daniel Blumberg is a musician and artist from London. With a decade of musical activity behind him under various pseudonyms, he now focuses his activities under his own name to explore the intersection between classic songwriting and free improvisation, while forging ongoing exchanges with other artists and filmmakers and developing his practice as a visual artist.

On&On is his second solo album – the follow up to 2018’s Minus – and is released on Mute in July. It confirms Blumberg as a unique creative force who pushes the art of song into expansive new territories, and features contributions from a tight-knit group of musicians: Elvin Brandhi (vocals), Ute Kanngiesser (cello), Billy Steiger (violin), Tom Wheatley (double bass) and Jim White (drums). The material is radically reimagined in live settings, with a rotating cast of players casting new light on his songbook from concert to concert.

GUO, his multi-disciplinary duo with saxophonist Seymour Wright, have released a number of live documents including GUO4 (released on Mute last year) alongside films by Peter Strickland and Brady Corbet, and texts by Fran Edgerly of art collective [Assemble] and David Toop. He has also collaborated with Japanese improviser Keiji Haino, video artist Marianna Simnett, and electronic maverick Elvin Brandhi in multi-disciplinary duo BAHK.

He has composed music for The BFI/Curzon Cinema’s Agnes Varda film season Gleaning Truths and recently completed the score for Mona Fastwold’s forthcoming feature The World To Come starring Vanessa Kirby, Katherine Waterston and Casey Affleck.

Blumberg is a prolific visual artist, described by Hans Ulrich Obrist as “one of London’s most exciting emerging artists”, who makes drawings using the ancient technique of Silverpoint as well as oil monotypes, watercolour and graphite. He recently exhibited at Kunsthall (Rotterdam), Deichtorhallen (Hamburg) MK Gallery (Milton Keynes) and Union Gallery (London).

Andrea Belfi releases his album with new label Float. Titled Ore, the album places drums at the centre of a deep, hypnotic listening experience, where rhythm is combined with electronic textures and haunting sonic details.

Over the years Belfi has built a sound-world that artfully combines a modest drum set-up with an equally concise electronics component. He has searched long to produce and refine the acoustic timbres of his music, but has now reached a certain point of fulfilment, courtesy of his Saari drum-kit from Finland. Melded seamlessly with the acoustic elements is a Nord modular and sampler. On Ore, Belfi attains a masterful synthesis of these two sonic realms.

Belfi has gained a reputation for his energetic and charismatic performances, both as a solo musician and within numerous collaborations. 2016 saw him tour with Nonkeen, the German three-piece band headed by Nils Frahm. Belfi became an instant highlight at London’s Barbican Centre, lighting the stage with an impressive and explosive drum solo that became one of the most memorable moments from the evening.

[Gre-Aus / Bella Union Records]

 When Xylouris White recorded their second album, this most intuitive and inquisitive of duos did what comes naturally to them: expanded their horizons. For George Xylouris, the Cretan lute player who partners here with the Dirty Three’s preternaturally fluent Australian drummer Jim White, one aim was to extend a core metaphor of their ruggedly visionary debut album, 2014’s Goats. 
“Like goats walking in the mountain” is Xylouris’s poetic analogy for their approach: “They may not know the place, but they can walk easily and take risks and feel comfortable. Really, the goats inspired us.”
 That exploratory pitch is matched by the majestic Black Peak, named after a mountain top in Crete and, says Xylouris, “recorded everywhere”. A peak in both artists’ careers, the album testifies to their determination to stretch the scope of their instruments and forge something vigorously questing from more traditional roots. Where Goats was mostly instrumental, Black Peak gives Xylouris’s full-force baritone a lead role. And where Goats was often frisky, its tumultuous, tender and terrifically expressive follow-up drives harder and dives deeper. 

 PJ Harvey has likened White’s playing to dancing....  It took until 2013 for Xylouris and White to form as a duo, a process accelerated when White played with Xylouris and Psarantonis at a Nick Cave-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Australia. Just as other parties helped unite them, so the path to Black Peak was trod with support. The producer is Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto, as on Goats (Xylouris: “His enthusiasm and aesthetic bring richness to the proceedings.”); the ghostly harmonies on “Erotokritos” come from Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.
 “All these things together, Jim from Australia, me from Crete, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy from Kentucky, Psarantonis from Crete, Guy Picciotto from Washington give us the inspiration of the horizon,” says Xylouris. “Jim and I travel a great deal and we like to do so. We have been doing that together the past three years, which is what inspired us to think of the horizon. “We’re still goats,” he adds, “now on the horizon.” On the spectacular Black Peak, Xylouris White show just how far their horizons can stretch.

[Fra / Rephlex, Morphine Records, Marionette]

"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 to pluck at hawsers or vibrate great flapping sheets - in reality rubber bands and strips of paper. Bastien's non-synched looping machines naturally have non-human quality, like an off-kilter African drum ensemble, and this strangeness is further magnified by his carefully layered visual projections. Over the top he plays pocket trumpet phrases drawn from the earliest days of jazz, as if King Oliver is muttering in his ear. But the trumpet is often masked: somehow it plays a baseline like a tuba, or else the mute is jammed into a beaker of bubbling water. On the screen the monochrome Fritz Lang world of relentless Meccano is invaded by a beautiful fountain of blue bubbles. Like a blend of Philip Jeck's heartbreaking turntables and Max Eastley's lost-in-space musical sculptures, Bastien has created an elegant display of genuine musical surrealism. He has been refining his approach for over two decades - ten years ago Aphex Twin released Mecanoid on his Rephlex label, and this show made it clear why Richard D James was so mesmerized. Bastien wound down his mechanical mysteries after 45 minutes, but I could have happily watched for hours." Clive Bell, The Wire - Dec. 2010

[(Ch,Fr / Bongo Joe)]

Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp, espace d’entremêlements sonores orchestré par l’imaginaire de Vincent Bertholet depuis 2006, sort son 5ème album, we’re ok, but we’re lost anyway, 9 morceaux enregistrés et mixés en nov-déc 2020.
Fédérant une escadrille de 12 musiciennes, toutes extirpé.es de leur biotope respectif, il fait tinter leurs balises cognitives jusqu’à les fondre dans sa partition. En ressort une musicalité répétitive qui, déployée par vagues successives, se tuméfient jusqu’à déboucher sur un amas d’univers et de transes. Macérant free jazz, post punk, high life, brass band, mixtures symphoniques et velouté pop jusqu’à transcender leur jus et leur territorialité, il en extrait une substance qu’il décline en un rituel rotatif, tantôt syncopé, tantôt en retenu.  Adorciste, hypnotique et post-syncrétique, l’Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp c’est l’esprit de l’artiste éponyme mais décliné à contre-sens du ready-made et de son versant DIY, c’est cet esprit retranscrit sur une partition, le tout avec une précision propre à la monomanie d'un asperger. 
Loin du manifeste de Tzara, quelque part entre les psaumes phonétiques d’Hugo Ball, une procession soufie qui vire en rixe et un rite vaudou. Là où l’on trouve leur cinquième album.

[Ita / Tremoloa]
Italian guitarist Alessandro "Asso" Stefana has gall. For his solo debut, Poste e Telegrafi, Stefana treats his guitar like a quarter-piece of the puzzle. He collaborates with six people and avoids the guitar altogether on two of these seven tracks. He alternately employs the 1980s electronics artifact the omnichord, a "strings machine," various African percussion instruments, and vinyl loops to build intricate, subtly shaped substrates for his meticulous, twang-redolent guitar fantasies. Largely because it avoids the solo guitar record template, Poste e Telegrafi is one of the most striking works you'll hear from a young composer all year. His guitar playing is graceful and dexterous, his fluid phrases are precise without feeling stiff. The cast here includes guitar maverick Marc Ribot, Italian songwriter Marco Parente, and Brian Eno/Nick Cave collaborator Leo Abrahams. The ends of Stafana's phrases, though, are about not perfecting the right note, but, instead, letting the assumed resolution arrive slightly altered. The climax, to wit, is one lonesome pedal steel note pushed through a web of effects. It sounds more like Glenn Branca conducting 100 guitars than one being built into something else entirely, like a cathedral carved from a single stone. These are rare talents for someone so young, and, given Poste e Telegrafi, Stefana sounds as if he'll be wielding them among the heavyweights for a long time to come. Rating: 7.8

[Can / Constellation]

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. 


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 the foundations of JIMH as an intensely vocal-driven musical project. 

JIMH has always been an immersive sonic and visual live experience; on the musical side, an evolving effort to forge a modern experimental Arabic music that weds melismatic singing in classical Arabic modes to electronic compositions with a punk-rock production sensibility. Mo7it Al-Mo7it captures and conveys all of this, while emphasising the intimacy and narrative pace that focused, intentional studio recording allows. The result is a unique and profoundly emotive album of contemporary Arabic music, a stunningly subtle first record for a musical project that resisted documentation or any sort of fixity for so many years. Moumneh's voice has become a powerfully authentic instrument and his production techniques – applying distortion, space echo and delay to varying degrees – lend a timeless intensity to the recording. Saturated synths and the overdriven signals of Moumneh's acoustic playing on buzuk and zurna reinforce the reigning sensibility, providing bracing counterpoint to the vocals and lovely, searching instrumental narratives in their own right. 

Jerusalem In My Heart currently exists around the core of Radwan Ghazi Moumneh carrying musical duties and Montreal filmmaker Charles-André Coderre projecting hand-made visuals using analog 16mm film & 35mm slides on multiple site-specific screen installations.

Josephine Foster is a Colorado singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer whose “music plays games with our ideas of time and space” says The Guardian. The Nashville Scene describes her work a”fusion of art song and American folk music” and there we find her walking a musical high wire. Byron Coley calls her “one of this generation’s great original voices”, and the former opera student is “known to breathe new life into archaic forms, embodying the cultural archaeology of Harry Smith’s old weird America, and has lent her characteristic warbling mezzo-soprano and interpretive wit to over two decades of recordings.” Blank Forms

Josephine has released some twenty albums, song cycles drawn from her own singular songbook, performed solo or leading various ensembles, occasionally under band guises: Mendrugo, the Supposed, Born Heller.  Peripheral but not insignificant are her unorthodox arrangements of 19th century German Lieder, the folkloric collection of Lorca, or her musical settings of Dickinson and other poets. Foster is a poet herself, as well as visual artist.

On stage or in recording she has collaborated with Michael Hurley, The Cherry Blossoms, Victor Herrero, Keiji Heino, Gyða Valtýsdóttir, Sonny Simmons, Brian Goodman, Paz Lenchantin, Jason Ajemian, The Master Musicians of Joujouka, Daniel Blumberg, Shahzad Ismaily, Heather Trost, Chris Scruggs, Lorena Alvarez, Moon Bros, Alex Neilson, Ed Askew, Susan Alcorn, Michael Zerang, Lori Goldston, Eric Chenaux, Louis Landes Levi, David Pajo, Alasdair Roberts, Victoria Williams, Hamza el Fasiki, Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh, Les Fils du Détroit, and Kath Bloom.

A nomadic spirit who hails originally from Colorado, she moves between the US and her adopted Spain giving performances around the world at venues such as Cafe Oto, Issue Project Room, Zebulon, MoMA PS1, Constellation, Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea, Tangier American Legation Museum, Paradiso, Tonic, Arkaoda, Chicago Cultural Center, Les Instants Chavirés, Beirut Art Center, Teatro Fondamenta Nuove, EMPAC, Trans-Pecos, Barbican, Monasterio de Santa Maria de las Cuevas, Troubadour, Andy Warhol Museum, ZDB, Palazzo Biscari, Trinosophes,ODA, Musée national Eugène Delacroix, Brown’s Diner.

Some past festival appearances include Big Ears, Le Guess Who?, London Contemporary Music Festival, Donau, ArthurFest, Liverpool Biennal, ATP, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Etcetera, KRAAK, Million Tongues, Counterflows, Stockholm New Music Festival, Suoni per il Populi, Incubate, Green Man, Platform, Serralves, Mimi. Her music appears in film and television (appearing onscreen for a brief cameo in HBO’s Perry Mason, which featured several traditional songs she recorded with the Victor Herrero Band.)

For her austere new solo offering Domestic Sphere Josephine performs solely with her electric guitar and then subverts the usual range of her voice to embody other frequencies and sounds beyond the surface layer of the songs .

Godmother (Fire) and Spellbinder (Takuroku) are two recent solo records that brought front and center for the first time Josephine’s own synth arrangements.  Mystery Meet and What is it that ever was? , collections of improvised song experiments released as CD-R’s in 2006, are now available in their first vinyl pressings on Feeding Tube records.

“She effortlessly dissolves barriers between herself and her fellow musicians, between music and listener, between language and expression” Wire

Horse Lords return with Comradely Objects, an alloy of erudite influences and approaches given frenetic gravity in pursuit of a united musical and political vision. The band’s fifth album doesn’t document a new utopia, so much as limn a thrilling portrait of revolution underway.

On the first single from the beloved quartet’s new album Comradely Objects, Horse Lords cut the ribbon on a new polyrhythmic Internationalist uptown playground to romp unbridled across, as guitarist Owen Gardner’s spidery twang and tremolo-like pulses combine with Salsero / Madchester piano, the sub-y synthesis of Max Eilbacher’s bass playing and a churning keyboard squelch, and Sam Haberman and Andrew Bernstein’s locked-in percussion create a comprehensive, hot-stepping throb and nod.

According to the band, "'Mess Mend' is an example of the new compositional directions explored on Comradely Objects — an attempt to make an opportunity out of the impossibility of live performance in 2020. Rather than fully forming the track in rehearsal, “Mess Mend” was built and rebuilt in the process of recording and mixing. Augmented by digital instrumentation,” the patchwork piece references "rave culture’s more egalitarian 'second summer of love,’ and signals an "important rethinking how a Horse Lord’s song is made and what that might sound like.”

Whether one considers the booming, echoed-out Oberhiem DMX drum beats that helped Run DMC’s “Sucker Mcs'' usher in a new paradigm in Hip Hop or Public Enemy transforming Robert McCollough’s high-pitched sax squeal into a siren call for a new take on the politics of Black power, rap music has long employed noise as a weapon of rebellion. A renegade sound born from an outlaw culture, rap music has both historically and contemporarily pushed against established notions of musical acceptability. This sonic rebellion shows up in the form of absurdly loud 808s, speech elevated to the center of a vocal performance or samples that are mangled and obscured beyond any possible recognition of their original source material. Coupled with it’s broad rejection of conventional social norms, the sound of rap music itself is unextractable from its political stance. It is the music of the oppressed. A music where the fight for liberation plays out within the beats and rhymes itself.

For Union City, NJ-based duo, Dälek, this stance has taken the form of a brutal sonic temperament that pushes rap music’s capacity for noise and protest to some exhilarating conclusions. For their latest album, Precipice, Dälek unleashes a work that is practically bristling with fury and power. Stretched over 10 tracks, the production is among the heaviest in the group’s catalog with its dense, violent beats often giving way to gorgeous waves of texture and ambience. The album opens like the sounding of an alarm with “Lest We Forget”, a brief but captivating ambient piece pulsing within a thick coat of distortion.

Initiated before the outbreak of COVID-19, the group briefly put Precipice on hold before returning to inject a newer, more dynamic energy into the album’s songs. The result is a timely work, that is teaming with immediacy. 

“Precipice was a completely different record pre-pandemic.” MC Dälek explains. “We had been working on the sketch of what the album was going to be at the end of 2019. I think me and (Mike) Manteca had narrowed it down to 17 joints out of the 46 or so that we had started with. Me and Joshua Booth had taken the 17 and really fleshed out the joints. The idea was to bounce them back to Mike and then arrange and write lyrics. 2020 obviously had different plans for everybody. We basically put everything on hold. I ended up doing the MEDITATIONS series that year on my own. I think the catharsis of that project, it’s rawness, the pandemic, all the death, the social upheaval, everything that went down… when I went back and listened to what we had down… it just wasn’t right anymore, it wasn’t strong enough, it wasn’t heavy enough, it wasn’t angry enough. It just didn’t say what I needed it to say.”

“Boycott” comes out swinging with it’s rugged, head nodding drum break. MC Dälek projects directly from the eye of the storm, his words taking a harrowing account of what could be the end of days. By the time the drums drop out and the noise swells around him, MC Dälek spits “I been tried telling you…society’s been failing you!”, delivering the line with breathtaking gravity. For “Incite”, Dälek stokes the polemical fire with a damning indictment of capitalism, the State and the whole damn system at large “Genocide! With a catchier name. Perhaps building empires has all been in vain.”

With cuts like the softly meditative “Devotion (when I cry the wind disappears)”, the brickyard boom-bap of “Decimation (Dis Nation)” and “A Heretic's Inheritance” (feat. Adam Jones of Tool on guitar), the album is as wide-ranging musically as it is philosophically potent and its sound is the result of experimental and intentional collaboration.

“I can’t explain it. It gets to a point where joints just come together like they supposed to. It’s my favorite part about making music. “A Heretic’s Inheritance” for example: Me and Adam Jones have been wanting to work together for a while but schedules are always hectic. We had the track pretty much done but listening to the droning riff, I thought ‘Damn Adam’s guitars would be dope’. I just sent him a loop of the drums, bass, and main guitar. That brother locked himself in his studio for 48 hours straight and came back with a pro tools session with a GRIP of ideas on guitar and synth. So many variations. We ended up doing a new arrangement with basically a guitar and synth solo and then incorporated some of those sounds throughout the verses. I just love how it sounds inherently like Adam but in OUR world!”

Once again, Dälek have tapped into the heartbeat of the day and used that energy to create a vital statement about the world we live in. Continuing in the long tradition of revolutionary Hip Hop, Precipice builds new cadences born out of tumultuous times.

A Long Wait is a young singer-songwriter born in 1995, who suddenly appears on the scene with a talent, a naturalness and an inspiration that has not been heard for a long time.
A modern courteous prince who seems to come from a distant era and moves in search of a new way of experiencing his feelings.
In his songs - born between Liverpool and Manchester, brought to Italy in the summer of 2020 and included in a forthcoming EP - A Long Wait celebrates the sweetness of man, shuns the dominant figure of the brutish knight and shamelessly tells of his own sensitive side.
A young musician who, with careful expressive research on sounds, lyrics and voice, develops a modern, fluid and personal writing, already reaching remarkable heights of maturity and awareness.
A music that crosses through the memories of echoes of Nick Drake, Elliot Smith up to the first Sufjan Stevens, but that bears the authentic signature of A Long Wait.
Love generates suffering, perpetual torment, but also joy and vital fullness.

[(Usa/Spa, Mute Records)]

Ranaldo and Refree worked together Ranaldo’s last solo album, Electric Trim (Mute, 2017), and soon after the pair returned to the studio to record the follow up they realised that Names of North End Women would become what Ranaldo describes as “the beginning of a new partnership, a new configuration’”.

For one of the greatest guitarists, ranked by both Rolling Stone and Spin, of his generation (Ranaldo co-founded Sonic Youth in 1981) and an artist reinventing traditional flamenco guitar (Refree’s album with Rosalía continues to grow internationally), this is an album that features tracks with little or no guitar. Instead the duo composed using marimba and vibraphone, using samplers, a vintage 2-inch Studer tape recorder and a modified cassette machine Ranaldo had previously used in performances 25 years earlier.

“We were mixing in all these strange analogue sounds from old cassette tapes, dealing with tape hiss; using very new technology and very old technology and mixing them together,” remembers Ranaldo. Elements from a mysterious old tape Ranaldo found spooled on the Studer when he’d bought it years earlier – drum sounds, slamming doors, people talking – formed the backbone of tracks. The music, it seemed, could come from literally anywhere.

“This record began as playing with samplers and cassette players,” says Refree, “as experimental music, musique concrete, poly-rhythms.” As the process wore on, however, their abstractions materialised into songs, their elemental rhythms, ambient hums and sampler damage revealing hidden melodies and patterns upon deep listening. Ranaldo and Refree traded melodic ideas and added vocals to the tracks, singing in addition to the spoken word pieces they’d always planned these pieces to feature. The words came in a process akin to the music, a collagist philosophy prevailing, as Ranaldo recomposed poems from his archives, wrote new pieces and incorporated lines sent in by Jonathan Lethem – who’d helped pen the songs of Electric Trim.

The result is an album alive with the electric crackle of experimentalism, yet satisfying as a collection of songs.

The album’s title, and the title of the lead track came from an experience Ranaldo had walking through a neighbourhood in the North End of Winnipeg, Manitoba. All the streets were named after women: Lydia, Kate, Dagmar, Harriett, Juno, etc – first names only, which implied something anonymous, or universal. Who these women are or were is not indicated, which lends their choice a certain mystery… Men are often named in our society with their full names, but these anonymous names were perhaps stand-ins for the many unrecognised or un-specified in our society. Ranaldo jotted the names down, in poem format, and explains, “somehow it became an impetus for the lyrics in terms of the people that drift in and out of one’s life, some significant, some fleeting.” He continues, “I had this idea of using given names as a device that could inform some of the lyrics. It doesn’t play through all the lyrics, but quite a few employ this idea.”

“This album loosens the bonds from the idea of what songs can be, and both Raül and I are excited to see where we can push it further,” says Ranaldo. For now, take time to absorb Names Of North End Women, its hidden treasures and unexpected turns, and ponder where Ranaldo and Refree’s collaboration might take them next.

"War-torn industrial, experimental r&b, and visceral ambience are unified under the banner of Military Genius, an audiovisual project that mirrors the political and existential turmoil of our times. Spreading a message of peace amidst the turbulence, Military Genius blends rigid composition and free-form noise, producing abstract, meditative representations of real-life experience."

"Deep Web, the forthcoming debut LP, is a journey into the cosmic night, an exploration of internal conflict beyond sight or sound, a submission to the bliss of pure abandon. Warped piano, piercing guitar, and euphoric saxophone move through a disorienting haze of noise, crashing at each turn from distorted club rhythms to shape-shifting jazz. Altered states of consciousness venture outwards to eventually return home, humbled and spiritually renewed."

"Compiled over 4 years while performing with such acts as N0V3L, Crack Cloud, and Blanka, the first Military Genius record was entirely written, recorded and produced by Bryce Cloghesy and represents an ambitious new point of departure that expands upon previous collaborative works."

Lee Ranaldo and Leah Singer have worked together since 1991 with film and music in a live setting, performing work
that explores how sound and image interact. Chance elements are embraced; the experiential nature of the work takes
precedent over overt narrative. Attention is paid to things that often go unnoticed, to how close observation can reveal
something new. 
Recent works Sight Unseen and Contre Jour are image and sound, the drone of a guitar string, the flash of film frame,
often in an in-the-round environment. An electric guitar is suspended in the performance space, un-tethered from the
amplifiers, swinging freely like a pendulum. Projection screens are site-specific. ‘Suspended Electric Guitar Phenomena’
and film frames interact with live shadow play. There is little separation between audience and performer; any part of the
room might be incorporated into the performance space. The intention is to create a sound and light environment where
the performers and the audience are engaged in an immersive experience, more circular than linear, often in-the-round,
allowing for personal interpretation and perhaps meditation rather than fixed exposition.

Jim White and George Xylouris have been friends since Jim's early days in Dirty Three. Their musical
connection goes back to then and led them to start  Xylouris White  in 2013. Since then, they have released
three albums and been touring the world. The Sisypheans is their Drag City debut and fourth release
together. Xylouris White's fourth installment of progressive Cretan lute compositions present the sounds
of the lute, George Xylouris' vocals and Jim White's drums in an open, spacious sound-field. With the
philosophical bent that suits their music's ancient headwaters, Jim and George are meditating on the life of
a traveling musician, Sisyphyan in its repetition, but inspired in an eternal recurrence of themes and
techniques that allow them to climb ever-further into their experience as players.

Over the span of her career, Jolie Holland has knotted together a century of American
song—jazz, blues, soul, rock and roll—into some stew that is impossible to categorize with
any conventional critical terminology. This is her burden and her gift, to know all of these
American songs of the last ten decades in her head and her heart, and to have to wrestle
with their legacy. She dives straight to the pathos of a song the way the very greatest
singers, singers like Mavis Staples, or Al Green, or Skip James, or Tom Waits do. Upon first
encounter her songs seem challenging, perhaps unsettling at times, but as so many poets
and rockers have shown us (from Dante Alighieri to William Blake to Sylvia Plath to Patti
Smith to Nick Cave to Mark E. Smith) that’s where the beauty lies. As evident on her first
recordings, Holland apparently has no fear of the truth, and there is no emotional core that
she cannot reach in song. In fact she thrives on the red hot center of a musical composition,
in all its strange and brutal detail.
This fall, Jolie Holland will unveil her latest album, ‘Haunted Mountain’; intricately
connected with friend and collaborator Buck Meek’s record of the same name, ‘Haunted
Mountain’ features five songs co-written by the pair, including the mesmerizing title track.
Holland explains:

“I wrote the song a couple years ago, and it existed as two verses for many months. Buck
added a third verse, and then we both began performing it with our bands. When he told me
he was including our song on his next record, I was extremely pleased at the weirdness – I
was going to release a version as well. Then he told me he wanted to name his record
Haunted Mountain, “…only if you’re not already naming your record Haunted Mountain.”
Well, that had been the name of my next record for quite a while. We thought about it for a
minute and decided it was bizarre and wonderful. Buck’s Haunted Mountain is out in late
August. My Haunted Mountain comes out in the autumn. I love how the image of a haunted
mountain is so open ended. I love how fun it is to say. I am enormously pleased that Buck
chose it as his album name too.”
The nine-track stunner delves into a treasure trove of themes, from anti-colonial thought to
homelessness, all while exploring the profound significance of being in reciprocity with
nature. “When the world is sacred, we are moved to protect it,” Holland explains. “Elves stop
highways in Iceland. Faeries save forests in Ireland. Even though the numinous is beyond
reason, it’s a motivating, communicative idea. You can tell it to a kid, and when the kid
grows up they might understand it ecologically, or they might understand it aesthetically.
The numinous is a huge idea,”  she continues. “An old friend of mine saw the Jordan River at
a place in Palestine where it was just a little creek. His description opened up this realization
to me: every river is sacred to someone. Every inch of Earth is someone’s storied, sung
homelands. No one needs to understand this more than settler Americans.”
Working closely with her talented collaborators, Adam Brisbin and Justin
Veloso, Jolie recorded the core of the album as a trio before adding layers of intriguing
overdubs. Ever the innovator, she employed some unconventional recording techniques,
like capturing the sound of knuckles rapping on the piano and incorporating the sounds of
cicadas in album closer “What It’s Worth”. The intriguing atmosphere of “Feet On The
Ground” was created by running a drum machine through an amp into a vast barn, every
sonic experiment a testament to her willingness to push the boundaries of her art.
‘Haunted Mountain’  is a triumph of boundless creativity, profound lyricism, and thought-
provoking artistry. With poetic storytelling awash in a dream-like sonic palette, Holland
invites audiences on an alluring journey that transcends genres and leaves an indelible mark
on the heart and mind.

Efrim Manuel Menuck – founding member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion – and Kevin Doria from Growing, Total Life and Hiss Tracts, are now officially a duo. Menuck recruited Doria to help him translate his acclaimed 2018 album Pissing Stars from the studio to the stage, and the pair have been touring under the Efrim Manuel Menuck moniker for the past year (often with Doria’s latest solo project KGD opening the proceedings). They’ve also been co-writing piles of new material, diving deeper into whirling maximalist electronics, still shot through with Menuck’s incantatory singing awash in plaintive distortion and hope.

Efrim Manuel Menuck & Kevin Doria are SING SINCK, SING presents the first volume of songs forged from this febrile and fertile merger: an antifascist poetics of sound that unspools across five crushing, keening tracks driven by thick sweeping drones and ostinatos, battered by inscrutably searching, ricocheting vocals. Anguish, yearning, and desperate conviction combine in these saturated survivalist electro-hymns, for as long as the power stays on to overload the amplifiers.


As the title suggests this is also an interstitial album of sorts, an identity-bridge that leads away from Menuck as ‘solo’ artist and towards SING SINCK, SING which will be the new band name for future work by the duo. Thanks for listening.
Recorded in Mexico City and in Montréal, autumn 2018.

Mastered by Harris Newman at Greymarket, Montréal.

Intro vocals on “Do The Police Embrace?” sung by Johanna and Ezra.

Additional vocals on “Do The Police Embrace?” and “Joy Is On Her Mount And Death Is At Her Side” by Robin Wattie.

dälek BIO

Veteran agitators Dälek have never been ones to stick within the rigid parameters of genre. A group who seemingly hold the utmost contempt for conservative expectations regarding form, instead pioneering a volatile and timeless strain of hip-hop, drawing as much from My Bloody Valentine as Public Enemy. These practitioners of noise fuelled depravity are back with a whole new album, entitled Endangered Philosophies, their follow up to last years Asphalt for Eden, scheduled to come out via Ipecac Recordings September 1 2017.
With Dälek, the flow has often been usurped by scorched textures, the product of synthetic decay, themes flitting from pungent political rage through to outright Dionysian frenzy. On Endangered Philosophies, the lyrics are more focused and at the forefront than ever before, and MC Dälek's new experiments with rhyme styles and flow makes for a vital concoction. There's no doubt about it, Endangered Philosophies is a work of guttural catharsis, it is a call to arms…

Within the context of the current political landscape, the title Endangered Philosophies certainly brings to mind pertinent issues of moment, notably the rampant rise of anti-intellectualism, as well as the all too rapid erosion of genuinely progressive values in the face of fearful reactionary forces. In MC Dälek's own words…“Endangered Philosophies is a very introspective record about very external forces. This isn't about one listen... it's about your evolving perception when you immerse yourself in the layers of sound and words. Endangered Philosophies is a record about the RIGHT NOW and yet will resonate differently each time it is listened to, in a word....timeless." (Rolling Stone)

Dälek have been prone to outbursts of pummeling extremity, yet their sound is anything but one dimensional; with viscous dark-ambient soundscapes congealing atop their incessant beats, a dual focus on brute force and disembodied unease. And still, Dälek continue to evolve, as Endangered Philosophies takes a new approach to source material, this time making use of material sent to them by people they have friendships and relationships with including Toronto based Metz, manipulating and sampling in the same way they would use record samples.

Although the group have evolved their sound over the years, they continue to collaborate with the same behind the scenes crew who've been with them from the beginning, from the production team, to the artist behind the cover art (Paul Romano). Endangered Philosophies captures so many elements of past Dälek but in a new way, easily matching any of their earlier output in terms of sheer unbridled intensity.

At this stage in their career they have elevated to a frankly peerless stature; with next year marking 20 years since the release of their pivotal debut album Negro Necro Nekros, and having previously collaborated with a host of like-minded visionaries; ranging from Krautrock legends Faust, through to the 90s electronic act Techno Animal - a similarly restless project comprised of Kevin Martin (The Bug, King Midas Sound) and Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu). Fans will be thrilled - but not too surprised - to discover that with Endangered Philosophies, the group once again charge forward, continuing to resist stagnation in all of its forms.

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.

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 their arrangement each time you pass by.”
Album teaser No Matter Where I Roam is a song “about finding signs of your home in
unfamiliar places.” A Tom explains:"A funny thing happened the first time I performed 'No
Matter Where I Roam’, (Ohio, 2012). A man and his wife approached me in the lobby after
the show. They didn't know my name, they didn't know my music. We came for (headliners)
the Punch Brothers, the man admitted. But we're curious. In the song you performed tonight
you sang about sugar beets, and my wife and I thought to ourselves, OK, this kid's gotta be
from North Dakota.”
"Everywhere I go I meet someone with ties to North Dakota. For a state that doesn't have a
huge population, and not too many tourist attractions, it sure has an impressive wingspan.
When I mention where I'm from on stage, someone will always find me afterward, and say,
Guess where I'm from.”
Tom Brosseau is a North Dakota-born, LA-based songwriter and singer who learned to play
acoustic guitar from his grandmother. He has toured Japan, Canada, Portugal, Iceland,
Australia; performed in bars, backyards, grand halls, subways, theaters, old folks homes;
exchanged songs and poetry with many talented folks, including Susan Orlean, Ramblin’ Jack
Elliott, Patrick Marber, Bonnie Raitt and the late Sam Hinton. Brosseau also is a featured
performer in John Reilly & Friends with Becky Stark and actor John C. Reilly.
Tom Brosseau on his background: "I grew up with music in the church, in the school, music
at home. I learned a lot of hymnal and folk songs, both traditional and contemporary, and
since I was influenced by what my grandparents listened to, in a sense I studied the singers
and songwriters of the great American songbook.”
After moving to Los Angeles in 2003, Brosseau began performing at the renowned club,
Largo, where he met Sara and Sean Watkins. Sean Watkins recorded Brosseau’s much
praised 2014 release, Grass Punks and has also recorded North Dakota Impressions.
John Parish (PJ Harvey) produced the 2ndalbum of the trilogy, Brosseau’s 2015 album,

[Usa / Sinderlyn]

Jaye Bartell's songs are poetic yet candid and unafraid, formal but also spontaneous. His lyrics leap and land like dancers and are alive. It may not be apparent at first, but Bartell’s songs are exultations that revel in the often unsteady but always moving life, filled with subtle humor and sincere love. Like the epic panorama on the album’s cover by artist Ursula Gullow, Bartell’s songs push out from the fissure between asphalt and clouds – car crashes and kissing, great gulls and stray dogs, friends and enemies, love and hate, all braided, each defining the other. In a Time of Trouble finds Bartell working with expanded instrumentation and more sonic color. Here his vocals have been honed, hardened, and thoughtfully tempered. There is sureness in his delivery, a paradoxical feeling that nothing is urgent despite the grave urgency of a song’s subject matter. In a time of trouble, a wild exultation…

After a full U.S. tour with Kevin Morby in 2016 and a solo tour in Italy in 2017, Bartell returned to his former home of Asheville, NC for a three-week recording session in April 2017. The timing could not have been better, as nearly all of his musician allies from recordings past were either in town or passing through – his longtime and ongoing collaborator, guitar artist Shane Parish (Ahleuchatistas); multi-instrumentalist Michael Libramento; songwriter, singer, and musician Angel Olsen; J Seger and Emily Easterly, who played on 2015's Loyalty; percussion marvel Ryan Oslance (Ahleuchatistas); and singer Noel Thrasher. All was brought together by producer and engineer Adam McDaniel at his Drop of Sun Studios in West Asheville, where he and Bartell worked to capture the mostly live performances, experimenting with recording techniques and improvised instruments like an open window with chimes and springtime birds or a deconstructed music box, winding the tune “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” backwards.

Bartell's third album for Sinderlyn is a record in the full meaning of the word – of sounds, of friendships new and old, of songs that compel repeated listens and that deepen and grow richer each time. Stay with these songs, and they will stay with you.

[(Ger-Usa / Not Two Records, Trost Records)]

Ears Are Filled With Wonder, the debut release from the duo of pedal steel player Heather Leigh and reedist Peter Brötzmann, blows the old adage about improvised music somehow not being best appreciated via the recordings to beautiful pieces. This is a music that demands re-visiting, that seems to alter, slightly, every time it is played, with new details emerging, new relationships of tone and style, new romance, even. Recorded during a mammoth stint in Krakow, Poland where Brötzmann and Leigh played as part of big bands, trios, quartets and duos, this duo performance represents the diamond heart of the sessions, an improvised set that bears little relation to what either of the players have achieved outside of its prodigious gravity. 
We mentioned romance and really Ears Are Filled With Wonder, a play on a line from the poet Kenneth Patchen, showcases the full reach of Brötzmann’s rebel lyricism, his lover man style, now smoky, seductive, late night, now roaring and vibrating with energy. Leigh plays it extremely subtly, sometimes fixing on the most suggestive detail and from there spinning luscious webs of repeat-time bliss that make for some of the most psychedelic and otherworldly settings of strings and horn. Elsewhere the two of them tear the roof off with tactile fuzz and horn ascensions.
 It’s a music of organic depth, of endlessly evocative unfolding, as themes bloom and sigh and disappear and arise and it feels curiously out of time, even as both players push their instruments into futuristic configurations. As such it doesn’t sit neatly in either players’ extensive catalogues. Rather, this is a music of perpetual change, of summing up and of pushing on, a music that feels genuinely new even as it runs an umbilical deep into the tradition of getting out. Indeed, even Brötzmann’s signature artwork and sleeve design seems to have mutated in turn, forsaking the blacks and whites and reds of old, the stark iconography of previous releases, for something more subtly evocative and colourful. 
Ears Are Filled With Wonder is a coming together of two of the most original voices on their respective instruments and the title reflects the joyful uncovering of a whole new way of listening and relating. Indeed, it might well be the first ever freely improvised electric pedal steel and saxophone duet ever put to tape. Either way it is one of the most startlingly beautiful combinations of players and temperaments to orbit the European jazz scene in years. And this is only the beginning. So hold tight.

[UK / Jagjaguwar, VHF, O Genesis, No Fans]

“Imagine Richard Youngs as the junior member of a cabal of prolific and puritanical English musician­-mystics, including The Fall’s Mark E Smith, Van der Graaf Generator’s Peter Hammill, Martin Carthy and The Clangers’ composer Vernon Elliot, and still his nature will elude you” ­ Stewart Lee, Sunday Times. 

Richard Youngs has been involved with music for most of his life. He discovered the power of the art form by thumping the family piano as an angry 5 year old. In the intervening 45 years he has attempted to harness the same experimental, naive, playful power in his live performances and in all of his 140 releases. This creative openness has led him to explore different musical genres. 

He has performed floor spots at Hertfordshire folk clubs, and worked with members of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He has recorded a modern pop album (‘Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits’), and a score for the BBC SSO (‘Past Fragments of Distant Confrontation’). He was commissioned to write music for the art film ‘The Poor Stockinger, the Luddite Cropper and the Deluded Followers of Joanna Southcott’, and his music has appeared in the 2013 feature film ‘Drinking Buddies’. He is the drum machinist of the Flexibles, singer of AMOR.

“The post­punk autodidact’s post­punk autodidact” ­ Clive Bell, The Wire. 

He is classically trained in piano and guitar, but musically he grew up in the shadow cast by punk rock. Adopting guerrilla recording techniques, the independent D.I.Y. ethic is at his core. 

He is a solo artist who also works with a diverse range of artists. He has collaborated with Scottish filmmaker Luke Fowler, Arts Foundation of New Zealand Award laureate winner Alastair Galbraith, Portuguese organist David Maranha, and Japanese guitarist Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple) among others. Since 1985 he has  performed irregularly with Neil Campbell (A Band; Astral Social Club; Vibracathedral Orchestra). He was the bassist for Jandek’s inaugural live performance at Instal 2005, and plays as a duo with Damon Krukowski (Galaxy 500; Magic Hour; Damon and Naomi). 

“Fearless…bonkers” ­ Fielding Hope, Senior Producer, Cafe Oto. 

He attempts not to repeat himself, every leap of faith is an expression of Richard Youngs' essential Youngs-ness.
