    Beautiful Noise

    Beautiful Noise is the third album by Neil Diamond on Columbia Records (tenth studio album overall), originally released in 1976. Dry Your Eyes was performed with The Band at their farewell show and is featured in Martin Scorsese's The Last Waltz.


    Beautiful Noise marked a radical departure in production, style, arrangements and compositional diversity for Diamond. It was billed at the time of its release as something of a comeback album for the artist and did mark a new and highly productive phase of his recording and touring career.

    Apocalypse, girl

    Think big, girl, like a king, think kingsize. Jenny Hval's new record opens with a
    quote from the Danish poet Mette Moestrup, and continues towards the abyss.
    Apocalypse, girl is a hallucinatory narrative that exists somewhere between fiction
    and reality, a post-op fever dream, a colorful timelapse of death and rebirth,
    close-ups of impossible bodies - all told through the language of transgressive
    pop music.


    When Norwegian noise legend Lasse Marhaug interviewed Jenny Hval for his
    fanzine in early 2014, they started talking about movies, and the conversation
    was so interesting that she asked him to produce her next record. It turned out
    that talking about film was a great jumping off point for album production.
    Hval's songs slowly expanded from solo computer loops and vocal edits to contributions
    from bandmates Håvard Volden and Kyrre Laastad, before finally
    exploding into collaborations with Øystein Moen (Jaga Jazzist/Puma), Thor
    Harris (Swans), improv cellist Okkyung Lee and harpist Rhodri Davis. All of
    these musicians have two things in common: they are fierce players with a great
    ear for intimacy, and they hear music in the closing of a suitcase as much as in a
    beautiful melody.


    And so Apocalypse, girl is a very intimate, very visual beast. It dreams of an old
    science fiction movie where gospel choir girls are punks and run the world with
    auto-erotic impulses. It's a gentle hum from a doomsday cult, a soft desire for
    collective devotion, an ode to the close-up and magnified, unruly desires.
    Jenny Hval has developed her own take on intimate sound since the release of
    her debut album in 2006. Her work, which includes 2013's critically celebrated
    Innocence Is Kinky (Rune Grammofon), has gradually incorporated books, sound
    installations and collaborations with poets and visual artists. For Hval, language
    is central, always torn between the vulnerable, the explosive and total humiliation.

    Muizenberg

    Barry Lynn returns for album number two on Mu. Continuing his hugely successful trademark dubstep/electronica sound from the 2006 album Oneiric, Lynn ups the ante and Glyphic certainly delivers. From the opening title track, Boxcutter's totally unique sound excels. Floating pads and astral jazz samples sit above deep dub basses, with all manner of instruments thrown into the mix, resulting in a beautiful noise throughout. He pursues dubstep with Bug Octet and the dub inflected J Dub, and break orientated electronica with Kaleid and Fieldtrip. With the outstanding Foxy he blends deep bass, soulful organ and vocals with soaring pads and an infectious 2-Step Garage skippy break.


    Boxcutter is an artist who pushes the dubstep sound to a new level while keeping the dub roots of the music firmly intact, injecting a truly unique flavour to everything he produces. Another huge album from Northern Ireland's biggest and best Dubstep producer.

    Maps For Sleep

    Formed in the Fall of 1991 by Brandon Capps (guitar/vocals), Kimber Lanning (drums) and Tim Patterson (bass), Half String created a lush, guitar-driven brand of noise pop. Their sound was an antidote to the desert jangle bar band scene that dominated Tempe, AZ at the time. While the group shared an aesthetic with much of the British shoegaze scene, and occasionally recalled the spirit of early 4AD and Factory Records, they certainly carved out a beautiful noise all their own. During their austere six-year lifespan, Half String inspired an underground music scene in their hometown, and gained a small but loyal following from beyond the desert.


    Half Strings first demo was hand delivered to Independent Project Records Bruce Licher during the summer of 1992. Impressed, Licher released the 3-songs as the Eclipse 7 single on his revered post-punk fine art imprint. Matt Kruse joined on second guitar in 1993, adding another layer of texture and intricate melody to the bands broadening sound. This was evident on Oval, Half Strings second single, and the subsequent Tripped Up Breathing EP, both released by IPR in 1994. Patterson left the band that Winter, and was replaced by Dave Rogers, a multi-instrumentalist who added backing vocals.


    In 1995, Germanys Pop Goes On! and IPR co-released Eclipse*Oval*Hue as a CD mini-album collecting together the first two singles along with three unreleased tracks. Later that same year, the group recorded their debut album, A Fascination With Heights. Issued by IPR in 1996, this would be Half Strings last release before the band parted amicably the following Summer and the fifth addition to Captured Tracks' recently launched Shoegaze Archives series.

    Hymn To The Immortal Wind

    Just in time for their 10-year anniversary, Mono return with their fifth studio album, the absolutely massive Hymn To The Immortal Wind.


    After touring almost non-stop for five years, the band hibernated for over a year to focus solely on writing Hymn. The result is their most thoughtful and eclectic album to date. Written and arranged with a hopeful, romantic narrative in mind, the songs string together like chapters in an epic love story. The music is naturally majestic, with Monos trademark wall of noise crashing beautifully against the largest chamber orchestra the band has ever enlisted. The instrumentation is vast, incorporating strings, flutes, organ, piano, glockenspiel and tympani into their standard face-melting set-up.


    Recorded to analog tape with long-time friend and producer Steve Albini, there is an intimacy captured here that is at once beautiful and a little terrifying. The creaking of old wooden chairs as the orchestra rocks in their seats (both literally and figuratively), puckered lips rolling along flutes, and even the conductors opening cue can be heard during the hauntingly quiet sections.


    While Hymn continues to mine the cinematic drama inherent in all of Monos music, the dynamic shifts now come more from dark-to-light instead of quiet-to-loud. The maturity to balance these elements masterfully has become Monos strongest virtue.

    Fade

    Fade is the most direct, personal and cohesive album of Yo La Tengo's career. Recorded with John McEntire at Soma Studios in Chicago, it recalls the sonic innovation and lush cohesion of career high points like 1997's I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One and 2000's And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out. The album is a tapestry of fine melody and elegant noise, rhythmic shadowplay and shy-eyed orchestral beauty, songfulness and experimentation.

    This Is PIL

    Public Image Limited's new self-funded 12-track set, their first in 20 years, is entitled This Is PIL, and will be released on the band's own label PIL Official via Cargo UK Distribution. All the new material was recorded in the UK last year at Steve Winwood's studio in the Cotswolds.


    John Lydon talks about This Is PIL: "Well, 12 songs, where do I begin? Everything and anything that attracts my attention.'One Drop' is about my early youth in Finsbury Park. Fantastic! Hello, we're all teenagers don't you forget it! At any age, stay young. 'Lollipop Opera' is basically a beautiful bunch of background noise and music to sum up Britain and all its wonderful ambidextrousness! 'The Room I Am In' well that's about drugs and council flats. And there's a tragedy that still continues. 'I Must Be Dreaming' Well, you know, I must be to put up with these governments.


    Following on from their monumental live performance at BBC Radio 6 Birthday Celebrations at Queen Elizabeth Hall on Friday March 16th which saw PIL include and baptize 2 new songs: Deeper Water and One Drop, PIL also played two very special shows at London's Heaven showcasing more tracks from the new album with The Times commenting "This was an evening of uncompromising art music, worthy of the total concentration of the audience."


    The track One Drop has now also received airplay from BBC Radio 6, XFM and Absolute Radio. Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time PIL's music and vision earned them 5 UK Top 20 Singles and 5 UK Top 20 Albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound former Sex Pistol frontman John Lydon formed Public Image Ltd in 1978, guiding the band from their debut album First Issue in 1978 through to 1992's That What Is Not, before a 17 year hiatus. John then resurrected PIL in 2009 playing live worldwide. Now after 20 years yet another new and unique chapter is set to unfold in the shape of new PIL material!


    Lu Edmonds, multi-instrumentalist and former guitarist in The Damned joined PIL in 1986 recording and playing on the album Happy? and co-writing the album 9, adding yet another dimension to the PIL sound. Bruce Smith, former drummer in The Pop Group and The Slits became percussionist for PIL, also in 1986, playing and recording on the albums Happy? and 9. Scott Firth, bass player/multi instrumentalist has collaborated and played with a variety of top musicians and bands including Steve Winwood, John Martyn, and Elvis Costello.

    To The Happy Few

    Eighteen years after they called it quits as a working band, 2013 finds the original members of Medicine reunited and proudly offering a newly recorded LP on Captured Tracks. "To The Happy Few" is the sound of a highly inspired group reclaiming its creative legacy, thoroughly immersed in the practice of mixing harsh noise with obsessive melodic detail and heavily groovy rocking.


    Returning is the core trio of lead singer/ chanteuse Beth Thompson, guitarist / vocalist Brad Laner, and drummer Jim Goodall, the same team which created the still vital, influential and controversial LPs "Shot Forth Self Living" (1992) , "The Buried Life" (1993) and "Her Highness" (1995) as well as a stand-out appearance in the 1994 film "The Crow".


    As it happens, it's really all the fault of Captured Tracks. In 2012 C/T pulled off the seemingly
    impossible and secured the rights to reissue the aforementioned two original Medicine LPs in loving and expanded fashion. This was a rather emotional moment for the original band members. So much so that upon meeting up at Brad's home studio in May 2012 for the first time since 1995 in order to divide up the vinyl goodies and ultra-limited box sets, the trio laid down the basic track for what became the final song on the new LP. Emboldened by the natural ease with which they slipped back into Medicine mode, the trio spent the remainder of the year leisurely recording the new LP and enjoying each other's company far removed from the stress and turmoil of their original early 90's run. The resulting LP is not your parent's Shoegaze record. The sonic palette and the hands, feet and mouths that utilize it may be the same, but the end result more subtly reflects the amassed life experiences and refined aesthetics of three mature artists only just now approaching the peak of their powers.


    The members of Medicine stayed quite busy with music in the interim between 1995 and 2012: Jim Goodall recorded and toured with his legendary evil country western band Jon Wayne which had its first LP reissued by Jack White's Third Man label. He also toured as a member of UK noise gods Whitehouse and recorded with Current 93. Beth Thompson made a collaborative album as The Shway and performed with The Furry Things. Brad Laner has released a bunch of solo and collaborative LPs under various names and recorded with the likes of Brian Eno, M83, Caribou and Blinker The Star.


    "Long As The Sun," the first single from Medicine, simultaneously references the origins of the band and explodes into brand new territory. An exuberant, belligerently pounding carnival of sound and harmony. A joyful acceptance of something that just simply works. Noise for beauty's sake. You know, Medicine

    Lighght


    "I really felt like I was witnessing history... in a couple of years we'll be talking about,
    'Man, I saw him at this intimate little show." - NPR


    "Grand and transcendent... the layers of beautiful sound, homage to Japanese culture,
    and use of violin make 151a a dreamy, pocket-sized symphony, perfect for anyone
    needing a lift." - BUST


    "Sumptuous orchestral brilliance... It's a stunningly good record, not merely chirpy,
    zany, and whimsical-but also packed full of harmonious, heart-stopping beauty. If you
    can imagine ELO's very best moments combined with Andrew Bird and a bit of weird
    Bjork introspection-well, even that doesn't really do it justice. Apart from Pet Sounds,
    perhaps, I can't think of a record that's as singly captivating in its sonic beauty." - THE PORTLAND MERCURY


    "Kishi Bashi's music sounds surprisingly basic and natural. He's got such a great way
    of thinking about production and melody that I've yet to hear a bad song from him." -
    YOU AIN'T NO PICASO


    "The music is off-kilter, particularly the opening chants and swirl of guitar and drums.
    The middle section, though, takes a more even-keeled approach to pop, balancing the
    looped whistles with peaceful, yet evocative vocals."
    - CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND


    "A weightless, cartwheeling, electro-pop romp that's all zz and no fuss" - SPIN


    Violinist, singer, and composer Kishi Bashi is slated to release his new album on
    April 29, 2014. The album entitled "Lighght" (pronounced "Light") continues and
    expands the sound of his critically acclaimed debut, "151a" - which earned Kishi Bashi
    the *title* of "Best New Artist" by NPR. Since the profoundly successful release of
    "151a" two years ago, Kishi Bashi has toured relentlessly, captivating audiences across
    the globe with his loop-based live show, and fostering a groundswell of devotees.


    "151a" was crafted over a four-year period while Kishi Bashi was touring and recording with Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and of Montreal (where he was a full-time
    member and co-producer). In late 2012, after the success of "151a", Kishi Bashi
    decided to focus solely on his own music and began composing the new material
    which has become "Lighght".


    "Lighght" takes its title from the one-word poem by minimalist poet Aram Saroyan.
    As Kishi Bashi explains, "The poem's blatant assault on literary convention and
    classical form was attractive to me." It is apparent that such an approach informed
    the new album, which has both broadened and redened his classical foundations.
    "Though I have studied classical composition, I prefer to take an unconventional path when it comes to creating and thinking about music," says Kishi Bashi.


    Though violin remains his primary instrument and songwriting muse, Kishi Bashi has
    expanded his palette to include more diverse and nuanced instrumentation. Bright
    and soaring avant-pop songs are prevalent, as are Eastern-tinged arrangements,
    gentle ballads, Philip Glass inspired improvisations, and more than a few moments
    that irt with 70s prog (in the tradition of ELO or Yes).


    If this sounds jarringly kaleidoscopic, that's because it is. But it works. Listen and see.

    He's Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands

    Twenty years now there's been this thing, our band, Joan of Arc. Sometimes we forget about it
    and let it fizzle out for a year while we tend to our lives. Sometimes we cling to it for a year and
    wake up surprised and exhausted every day for months on end, given walking tours of old
    Italian towns, browsing dreary British pedestrian malls or barefooted organic grocers on the
    Pacific coast. We know how lucky we are.


    The less we feel like a band-the more we can continue to be a band, but escape that feeling of
    doing all those shitty, corny things expected of bands-the truer to ourselves we feel. And you
    all know it, everyone knows it even if everyone has to bury it to get on with their day-to-day:
    the truer to ourselves we feel, the better everything gets.


    We have shifted shapes and modified our approaches quite a number of times in the course of
    twenty years. And we've done so always aiming to stay true to ourselves at that moment, by
    instinct and with conscious intent. This time, it took us a long time to figure out how to start
    back up. We threw away a lot of songs and started over, over and over.


    But here's the thing: We are getting better at being ourselves. So many of the postures of
    youth just fall away with time. Most bands break up by that point, or become caricatures of
    their younger selves. Because money is tricky, or I should say, it comes to be that energy is
    tricky to muster after all of it goes into the basics of sustaining yourself.


    Every day, at some point, it occurs to me that Richard Brautigan killed himself at the age that I
    am now. But I got this community of weirdo collaborators to lean on that he never had.
    We've never had an audience that gets any validation of its coolness through liking us. We've
    mangled, juxtaposed, and collaged too many elements for that social contract. But we trust
    each other.


    This time, finally, we trusted each other enough to throw all the songs away, to even throw
    away every preconceived idea about which one of us should take position at which instrument.
    We hit Record and played, and our collective tastes emerged. And they, our tastes in the
    moment, were the only standards in all the expanse of the stupefying and beautiful unknown
    universe, that we regarded as relevant in the least.

    Mountain Moves (Pre-Order)

    This is no time for the tortured artist. Right now, we're living in two worlds at once.The first is a death-driven monoculture: cutthroat, cynical, exploitative, literally deranged. This is the dominant, unlistening world, the unmoved mountain. Then there's the other world: the still-breathing, idealistic, and wholly life-affirming underground.

    Mountain Moves is a celebration of the under-sung communities that have nourished us with their joy, their energy, their individualism, their pointless beauty.Starring the singing, playing, and songwriting of guests whose musical and political voices we admire, Mountain Moves is partly an ecstatic snapshot of a would-be utopia.

    Fragmentation is more than an aesthetic. One moment your head's exploding over the stupidity and sadism of our leaders and systems, the next your favorite singer has just emailed you a vocal track recorded in their hotel room on tour. Mountain Moves explores the extremes of despair and hope that make up so much of our minute-to-minute experience.

    We met a lot of crowds this year, at Brazilian music festivals, arena shows, protests.The power and potential of a crowd is like music itself - inspiring, healing, urgent.We made Mountain Moves fast, in hopes of capturing some of that communal energy. Please dance and sing along.

    Giving Up The Ghost

    Windsor for the Derby are a study in dualities. It is made of two primary band members preserving not only a musical identity but a friendship over many years and many miles. Creating music that is equal parts dance and folk, a truly disparate combination of styles that come out sounding completely organic. While listening to Giving Up The Ghost, you hear not only the beautiful stylistic tension of two styles at play, but also the room and atmosphere itself. Windsor's music has always been a play on modern pop, infused with giant amounts of space, a space that both reflected the physical distance between its members as well as providing an artistic counterpoint to the massive inundation of noise and data that our society is bombarded with daily.


    The past eleven years have seen Windsor For The Derby reach across the country and make the long distance relationship somehow work. With founding members Jason McNeely in Austin, TX and Dan Matz in various locales along the east coast, WFTD always seemed more a project than a band. Last summer both found themselves living in the same city as they both relocated to Philadelphia. In the past WFTD had to rely on their semi-annual meetings to conduct their business, but now they are regularly playing live shows and prolifically recording in their home studio.

    Ancient Melodies Of The Future

    Ancient Melodies of the Future is the fifth full-length album released by indie rock band Built to Spill. The album was recorded at Bear Creek in Woodinville, Washington. With Ancient Melodies of the Future, Built to Spill expanded on the big sound that they crafted with KEEP IT LIKE A SECRET.


    In Your Mind is a beautiful track with its Far Eastern guitar lines and thumping beat. Alarmed spirals into a satisfying guitar and keyboard noise jam, while Happiness is like a speeding car - it has the intensity, rush, and twanging swagger of an automobile race. The album closes with The Weather, a shimmering love song that begins with a resonant acoustic guitar. The narrator describes being outside in the cool night, and the stars gravitate towards you.


    These few lyrics are a fitting description of Built to Spill, a band that goes on and on, always changing, always moving forward, but somehow always staying the same - familiar and comforting - as they carry the ancient melodies of personal histories, theirs and yours, into the future.

    This Side Of Jordan

    At its core, Mandolin Orange is a duo - Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz - from Carrboro, NC. Their harmonies are ethereal, their chemistry vibrant, bringing to mind the atmosphere invoked by classic duos such as Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons, or Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.


    Andrew and Emily provide the foundation of the group's timeless Americana sound, while enlisting a full band to flesh out their dynamics. This Side of Jordan is the group's 3rd full length. The band has made quite a bit of noise on the folk/Americana circuit, while displaying a virtuosity and exuberance that crosses over to more indie-rock inclined audiences. This Side of Jordan is a stunning work of beauty and grace from a young band destined for great things.

    e-TP80 Power Distributor/AC Power Filter +GC-303

    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    The e-TP80 is a sophisticated, luxuriously made power distributor that eliminates many common problems found with audio and video components caused by massively contaminated electrical power. The AC waveform becomes severely distorted by ground noise, voltage spikes and sags, high frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, plus radiated high frequency digital noise from processors and digital interconnects. There are also distortion products at the top and bottom of the AC waveform created by switch-mode power supplies in electronic devices on the same circuit. Additionally, you're never alone; your residential AC mains supply is shared with other apartments, homes, and businesses on the same utility transformer. That's why many audio and video enthusiasts notice their systems are more enjoyable late at night or on weekends! The beautifully crafted special grade aluminum chassis effectively shields against another common problem, RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), and a layer of Formula GC-303 blocks EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference). Internal wiring is Furutech FURUTECH µ-14 wire(14 AWG) that guarantees low resistance. Furutech Hyper Quality Audio Grade Receptacles are wired to the gold plated IEC AC input of the e-TP80. Receptacles feature 24K gold-plated phosphor bronze, non-magnetic conductors for stable, long lasting, optimized power transfer.


    Furutech's Two-Stage Cryogenic and Demagnetization Alpha Process The Final Result The 2-Step Cryogenic and Demagnetizing Alpha Process works in tandem with other design-in features to create the most optimized AC power transfer possible. Furutech's total awareness and devotion to detail results in a greater sense of power, dynamics, and resolution, with cleaner, blacker backgrounds and a larger, more stable soundstage, vivid tonal colors and deeper extension at both ends of the frequency range. The e-TP80 will allow the delicacy, refinement and nuance of a performance through, along with micro- and macro-dynamics that will leave you breathlessly engaged. Displays of all types will exhibit greater, sharper resolution with less ghosting, color shift, "snow", or vertical and horizontal lines.

    AudioQuest NightOwl Carbon Headphones


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Offering a unique combination of unsurpassed comfort,
    state-of-the-art design, and naturally beautiful sound,
    AudioQuest's first headphone, NightHawk, has been
    lovingly featured in the pages of magazines and websites
    as far-reaching as Stereophile, Rolling Stone, CNET, Wired,
    Head-Fi, Digital Trends, The Verge, and many more. This
    is evidence of the intensifying convergence between the
    high-fidelity and high-technology worlds, and testament
    to NightHawk's uncanny ability to captivate and inspire a
    diverse audience of thinkers, builders, engineers, and, of
    course, music lovers.


    While NightHawk's many innovative design elements-
    Liquid Wood earcups, biomimetic sound-diffusing grilles,
    and high-performance solid-conductor cable, to name just
    a few-have impressed listeners worldwide, many have
    expressed interest in different paint finishes, more versatile
    cables, and closed-back designs.


    AudioQuest takes the first of many steps toward satisfying
    those interests with two new around-the-ear models:
    NightHawk Carbon and NightOwl Carbon.


    The closed-back NightOwl Carbon further advances
    the state of the headphone art, replacing NightHawk's
    sound-diffusing grille with an intelligently designed
    aperiodic damping system for excellent isolation of both
    external noise, and ensuring privacy for the listener and
    those nearby.


    Hidden beneath the central circular portion of NightOwl's
    earcups, a vent runs along the perimeter of each dome
    and exits through a hidden airflow-resistive port. Thus,
    unlike other headphones that use a sealed enclosure,
    NightOwl is designed to effectively relieve the buildup of
    pressure, allowing the drivers to breathe freely, ensuring
    that any impulses quickly return to an innocuous resting
    state-with no ringing, oscillation, or resonance.
    Further, we've implemented several closely related
    acoustic, ergonomic, and cosmetic refinements, each of
    which seamlessly complements the whole, delivering
    improved performance while elevating the overall user
    experience.


    Acoustic Refinements


    • Modified internal parts: Tighter tolerances reduce air
      leakage for improved airflow and lower distortion
    • Two sets of earpads: Protein Leather Boost Pads seal
      tighter for better isolation and slightly enhanced treble
      clarity; Microsuede Pads breathe freer for greater comfort
      and slightly reduced bass impact
    • Improved plugs: High-purity Tellurium Copper (TeCu)
      base metal for smoother surface, higher plating quality,
      better mating contact, and, consequently, less noise


    Ergonomic Refinements


    • Improved headpad: Genuine leather headpad with
      stitched detailing for enhanced comfort, more luxurious
      look and feel
    • Improved cable: Shorter (4.25ft) length for easier use
      at the desktop or with mobile devices; flexible, nonbraided
      jacket increases durability, eliminates kinking,
      minimizes microphonics; robustly engineered and
      rigorously tested strain relief further increases durability;
      discrete microphone and smartphone controls enable
      phone calls and playback functions (Play, Pause, Skip)
      without compromising sound quality


    Cosmetic Refinements


    • Luxurious finish: Porsche Carbon Grey Metallic highgloss
      paint meticulously applied via multistage process
    • Improved inner presentation: Includes microfiber
      pouches for headphones and accessories for safer,
      simpler travel


    With the new semiopen
    NightHawk Carbon and closed-back NightOwl
    Carbon headphones, you can listen longer, later, and with
    greater pleasure, enjoying even deeper immersion in your
    favorite music, movies, videos, and games.
