    Let The Dancers Inherit The Party

    Acclaimed UK rock outfit British Sea Power are back with the forthcoming LP Let The Dancers Inherit The Party out
    March 31st on Golden Chariot. The band's first new material since 2013's Machineries of Joy, Let The Dancers
    Inherit The Party is a melodic call to arms, direct and brimming with emotional urgency. It's an album where rock
    muscularity joins inseparably with pop immediacy like a crate of bubbly exploding inside a Marshall stack.

    Call By Night

    Wymond Miles was raised in the working-class small towns of the American
    West. On Call by Night, the singer's latest widescreen opus, Miles masterfully
    evokes that lost landscape, all while grappling with issues of fatherhood, privacy,
    PTSD, violence, and dissipated romance. The album adds a critical new chapter
    to the Fresh & Onlys guitarist's story as an artist, and reasserts him as a major
    voice in contemporary songwriting.


    Call by Night sees Miles building a noticeably bigger sound than on his previous
    solo records, while simultaneously standing as his most intimate work. It's a
    record explicitly written for the fidelity of the vinyl format, with louder songs
    beginning each album side and quieter songs at the interior. His attention to
    sequencing paid off; the album flows like a piece of classic cinema, and sounds
    like it's splashed across a drive-in screen in 70mm. Recorded using vintage gear
    by Phil Manley (The Fucking Champs, Trans Am) at El Studio in San Francisco
    and Miles' Garden Chamber home studio, the record is a treasure of tube-amp
    warmth, and a landmark in the songwriter's catalog.


    Miles wrote most of Call by Night on piano, and while the wall-of-sound guitar
    and cinematic synth playing that helped define his earlier efforts is still present,
    the beating heart of the songs is left more open thanks to his new method. Where
    previous full-lengths were cloaked in distinct aesthetic choices, this record exists
    outside of any stylistic restraints. "Divided in Two," the lead single, considers
    dignity, class, honor, and father-son relationships through the devastating lens of
    PTSD, all set to a sardonic flag-waving waltz, with martial percussive bomb blasts.
    The title track explores the enduring aesthetic of British psych-folk. Other songs
    dip into the traditions of gospel music, sea shanties, and even big-box power
    ballads, using antique instruments and Miles' unique perspective on the modern
    world to forge a new collection of entries for the American songbook.


    Miles has said the songs on Call by Night mark his "more definitive commitment
    to seek, listen, and give voice to an enduring muse." If that's true, then the muse
    has obviously been singing to him loud and clear.

    The Power Out (Awaiting Repress)


    Back In Print Due To Popular Demand!


    Electrelane's second album, The Power Out, is also their debut for the esteemed, arty British label Too Pure, the perfect home for a band that resembles so many of the imprint's other acts. The similarities appear early on, with the Stereolab-eqsue motorik and French vocals that drive Gone Under Sea, the wobbly-yet-charming singing on Birds that recalls Pram's Rosie Cuckston, and the intricate interplay of guitars and keyboards on every track that bring to mind th' Faith Healers (and their later incarnation, Quickspace). But these similarities are far from derivative; instead, on The Power Out, Electrelane feel like they're in the tradition of these other messy, angular, decidedly British art-punk bands, so much so that it's hard to imagine the band on any other label (with all due respect to Mr. Lady, who released Electrelane's debut, Rock It to the Moon). But even though the group perfectly defines the way that so many British art-school bands have sounded since the late '70s, in Electrelane's hands it still seems fresh.


    The Power Out also seems fresher than Rock It to the Moon, perhaps because, paradoxically, it's more focused than their debut. That's a relative term, though; the noodly, jam-based feel that dominated Rock It to the Moon is still here, particularly on The Power Out's more rock-based songs such as Take the Bit Between Your Teeth and the closing instrumentals, Only One Thing Is Needed and You Make Me Weak at the Knees. But overall, the songs are more concise here, giving songs like On Parade and the lovely Enter Laughing an immediate, if not exactly poppy, feel.


    The band finds different ways to channel the ambitions it so boldly displayed on Rock It to the Moon: Oh Sombra! is an eerie, passionate song fashioned from a sonnet from Spanish poet Juan Boscan, and This Deed borrows a line from Nietzsche to fit its appropriately dramatic air. Most striking of all is The Valleys, a choral rock piece that features Chicago A Cappella and Verity Sussman's arresting vocals, and attains a ceremonial, spiritual grandeur that hasn't been seen in many rock records save the Microphones' Mount Eerie. The Power Out manages to be unique without being a radical departure, and it augurs more good things for Electrelane's stint with Too Pure.

    The Birth

    After traversing the galaxy as the road crew for fellow Oklahomans The Flaming Lips, a strange yet melodically intoxicating band has emerged, the psych/prog/experimental pop quartet Stardeath And White Dwarfs. One-half stoners with nothing to do but roll joints on their King Crimson record sleeves and one-half confetti launchers/space bubble technicians, Stardeath And White Dwarfs debut their own free-floating circus with their first full-length album, The Birth. A mind-trip of emotion and mood, recalling everything from upper dance freak-outs to downer Floyd-esque anthems, The Birth celebrates a love of all things psychedelic. This standard-weight black-vinyl release is housed in a single-pocket jacket with a digital download card for the full album.


    Stardeath And White DWarfs independently released the six song EP, Thats Cool, in 2005, followed by the 7 single in the U.K., Toast & Marmalade For Tea/Chemical, on Half Machine Records in 2008. The band has toured with Deerhoof, British Sea Power, Band Of Horses, Starlight Mints and The Flaming Lips.
