    Motion

    Just as Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, Calvin Harris is the Emperor of EDM, with Motion, his fourth album, serving to express the glory of the empire, not revolutionize it. While Ellie Goulding, Gwen Stefani, and John Newman enliven their respective Vegas club staples, and Summer contains one of the year's most grandiose synth crescendos, it's the curveballs that steal the show here. The opalescent Pray to God sounds more like a Haim song spiced up by Calvin Harris than vice versa, and Dollar Signs, featuring vocals by R&B young turk TinashÉ, is a clever funk-EDM hybrid. Open Wide, featuring Big Sean, sucks the air out of the room with clobbering bass.

    Over the past years, Calvin Harris has had number 1 hit after number 1 hit with his EDM-style songs (most recently with Summer) and collaborations with the likes of Rihanna, Kelis, Dizzy Rascal, Florence Welch, Example, Ellie Goulding.


    His debut album I Created Disco (2007) is much more funky and not so much EDM, but contained a handful of chartbusters as well. Acceptable In The 80s, Colours, Vegas, The Girls and Merrymaking At My Place were very successful in the European charts. Harris combined all the right ingredients on I Created Disco; 80's Wave, Soul, Disco, House, Electro and Pop.

    Ready For The Weekend

    Ready For The Weekend is the second studio album by Scottish recording artist Calvin Harris, released in 2009. The album topped the UK Albums Chart and was certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry.


    Harris had been working on the album since the release of his debut album, I Created Disco [MOVLP1185], with the first tracks being recorded in 2008. In April 2008, Harris stated that the only existing copy of his then-upcoming album was lost when his laptop was misplaced during the baggage handling problems at the opening of London Heathrow Terminal 5. He later stated on the BBC's Glastonbury Festival 2008 coverage that he got his baggage back including the album within a few days. However, Harris ultimately admitted in April 2009 that this was a lie as the album was not in his luggage at all, and that he hoped that what he said would give him more time to finish recording the album.


    I'm Not Alone was released as the album's lead single. The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, knocking off Lady Gaga's Poker Face. It spent two weeks atop the chart, before dropping to number three in its third week. Ready for the Weekend was released as the album's second single, peaking at number three on the UK Singles Chart. Flashback and You Used to Hold Me, were also released as singles. An extended version of Harris's 2008 chart-topping collaboration with Dizzee Rascal, Dance wiv Me, is also included on the album. Yeah Yeah Yeah La La La was used in a Coca-Cola advertisement in the summer of 2009.

    Lynch the Swan b/w Selector Dub Narcotic Dub theSwan

    The Hive Dwellers are a small grouping of Pacific Northwest natives, led by the large sound of one Calvin Johnson. On their latest musical effort, Lynch the Swan b/w Selector Dub Narcotic Dub the Swan Johnson and his alternating collection of collaborators fuse baritone vocals with melodica for an awkwardly peppy groove sensation.


    Last year the Hive Dwellers stepped into Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, Washington to record a 7 45 rpm phonograph record of a particular type: a Dub Narcotic Disco Plate. That being a single on which the A side is a strong, hit-bound song by the artist in question, and the B side is a remix of said song by the fabulous Selector Dub Narcotic. The results were joy-producing.


    For this particular session the Hive Dwellers consists of Calvin Johnson on electric guitar & vocals, Karl Blau playing the electric bass guitar, and Andrew Dorsett keeping rhythm on the drum set, providing stylish flourishes on the keyboard. Powerful stuffs.

    Gravel b/w Selector Dub Narcotic Re-Grade

    The second album LAKE recorded for K, Let's Build a Roof [KLP213], included a song by drummer/multi-instrumentalist Lindsay Schief many consider one of its highlights, Gravel. When the band returned from their U.S. tour following the release of Let's Build a Roof Gravel had a new fluid soulful feel to it that struck resident Dub Narcotic Studio producer Selector Dub Narcotic (aka Calvin Johnson) as a ripe candidate for the Dub Narcotic Disco Plate series of 7 45 rpm phonograph records. He approached the band about the idea and they agreed to give it a try.

    Look Around

    A Remastered, Double Album Anthology, Handpicked By The Band


    Formed in the early '80s in Olympia, Washington by Calvin Johnson, Heather Lewis and Bret Lunsford, Beat Happening combined a primitive pop sound with a D.I.Y. attitude and inspired countless artists along the way. The community that arose around the band and their label, K Records, was in many ways, the sonic antithesis of their Seattle neighbors (and friends) but was no less influential. Look Around is a remastered, double album anthology, handpicked by the band. It's a great starting point for the uninitiated as well a refreshing reminder to those who caught the wave the first time around.

    One Foot In The Grave: Expanded Edition

    This 15th Anniversary Expanded Edition of Beck's One Foot In The Grave features the original album remastered, plus 16 bonus tracks including 13 previously unreleased recordings. Also includes songs from the It's All In Your Mind single.


    Recorded before Mellow Gold, One Foot In The Grave showcases Beck as a postmodern folkie, and the results are revelatory. Stripped of the intoxicating production that dominated Mellow Gold, Becks songs prove to be wonderful, vibrant tunes, teeming with emotion, haunting wordplay, and simple, memorable melodies. Its alternately haunting and jubilant, and Calvin Johnsons occasional harmonies lend the record an intimate warmth. Its a gentle record, and its collection of small gems are every bit as impressive as the songs on Mellow Gold or its 1996 follow-up, Odelay.

    Do The Rump!

    On Vinyl for the First Time!


    In 1979, historian David Evans, a Professor of Music at the University of Memphis, chanced upon Junior Kimbrough playing at Ethel's Juke Joint in Holly Springs, Mississippi. The University had recently created its own small record label called High Water and he brought Kimbrough in to cut some sides, including his next single at the time titled, Keep Your Hands Off Her. The sides would be compiled for Junior's first full-length album, Do The Rump. The result has become hill country legend, and his band, featuring Calvin Jackson on drums (father to Cedric Burnside and one of the most rock steady drummers of all time), created a sound that launched a whole new generation of blues fans.

    Pith

    Anyone who has seen Emily Beanblossom perform has surely left entirely taken with her. As the lead singer of Christmas, a band whose unique style of psych rock made them a cult marvel, Emily sold out both shows and records, due in no small part to her captivating, cultivated persona and the rare power of her voice. A vagabond for our ilk, she has lived life on the road and in collaborations, drifting down
    the line until she was called back to her family farm outside Chicago, Ill. Here she paused to lay down the hollowed noise that would become Ruby Fray. Her premier album Pith is a string of musical gems that range from harmonic americana and folk to shadowy psychedelia, united in their spectral chamber arrangements.


    Each of the twelve tracks on Pith come from demos Emily has been keeping close, and showcase her varieties of influence.And the Moon, with its steady drum machine loop, eerie harmonies and mandolin strings stands apart from its follower, Mint Ice Cream, a playful Americana-style duet with Calvin Johnson.Closed Eye is the same, a drifting melody punctuated by tinny drums and fuzzy guitar
    strumming. But this is the beauty of Pithlike the single,Lets Grow Older,it gambols,and then fallsto despair and questioning, is both the blossom and the thorny edge. Ruby Fray is a dark star risen, and the power and soul of Emilys voice changes all that it shines upon.


    Pith includes the talents of numerous Pacific Northwest masterminds: producer & engineer Ben Hargett (who recorded the Christmas LP), songwriting and production assistant Ian Van Veen (Legs The Crab, Georgy), and harmony/strings specialist Giselle Garcia. As per K / Dub Narcotic tradition, a number of artists from the K roster also play on Pith, including Arrington de Dionyso, Gordon Baker (Mailaikat dan Singa, Desolation Wilderness), Andrew Dorsett (LAKE, Desolation Wilderness), Angelo Spencer, Markly Morrison (LAKE), Jake Jones (Christmas), and Calvin Johnson.


    Quite honestly her vocals are so beautiful,you almost feel theyre being wasted on a raw punk band like Christmas. But then again Christmasis a classic punk band without a lot of nonsense and its Beanblossoms vocals that make theyre music special.

    Warpaint

    WARPAINT is a Los Angeles based quartet comprised of Emily Kokal
    (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals), Theresa Wayman
    (guitar/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums). To say that this follow-up
    is "highly anticipated" is an understatement, considering the reception
    that their debut received when it was released at the end of 2010, and
    the excitement at their recent sold-out shows in New York and LA. They
    are currently also featured in a Calvin Klein jeans campaign which has
    received 2 million views via the YouTube ad alone.


    Warpaint was recorded and mixed by Flood, aside from two songs that
    were mixed by Nigel Godrich. The album was conceived after some truly
    inspirational writing and recording sessions that took place in The
    Joshua Tree late last year. The band was joined there by visionary
    director Chris Cunningham, who has partnered with them for many of the
    album visuals including the cover. He spent two years filming and photographing the band as they made new music.


    Warpaint is a well-oiled machine. They weave intricate guitar lines,
    hypnotic vocals and driving post punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling
    songs that skirt the line between psychedelia and intimacy. Both live
    and on record, Warpaint sound like they're channeling something truly
    otherworldly, and mystical. They are also a band that truly enjoys playing
    together. Emily and Theresa have been friends since they were kids, and
    the bond that the four of them have is truly special.

    Sad Sappy Sucker

    After stepping up to the major-label plate with The Moon and Antarctica, Modest Mouse reach back to their roots with Sad Sappy Sucker. Sucker is actually the band's first recording, released in 2001 but created back in 1994. It was shelved in favor of Lonesome Crowded West as their debut, but Sucker is still a fine piece of the Modest Mouse lineage.


    Although parts of Sucker are experimental compared to the band's current polish, this isn't some rarity to be enjoyed only by collectors. Breezy melodies build into jagged choruses as singer Isaac Brock shows he can be both tender and playfully aggressive. Most of the songs clock in between two and three minutes, leaving room for numerous gems in the course of the 24-track album. While 12 of the songs come from a recording session with K Records' Calvin Johnson, a chunk of Sucker material comes from Brock's Dial-a-Song phase, during which callers heard new songs by dialing into his answering machine. These experiments range from lo-fi combos of distorted instruments and whiny vocals to complete songs, like the bluesy rock jam on Secret Agent X-9. The Dial-a-Songs--and a message left by Murder City Devils front man Spencer Moody (Call to Dial-a-Song)--are both comic relief and proof that Modest Mouse didn't gain their indie-rock cult status by accident. The talent's been there from the beginning. --Jennifer Maerz

    You Know What To Do


    Their psychedelic surf-rock blew the audience away - KEXP


    The Shivas might be Portland's best band. There, I said it - Ryan J Prado of the
    Portland Mercury


    Tight and entergetic - ssgmusic


    Recorded at K's own Dub Narcotic Studios, The Shivas' fourth LP will have
    you on your feet. With all of the fierce energy and body shakin' that The Shivas
    are known for, You Know What To Do encapsulates that, and much
    more. Recorded and mixed on tape by Calvin Johnson, it is an apt follow-up
    to Whiteout, and features the title track of The Shivas You Make
    Me Wanna Die" 7" EP released last April.


    Amongst the 13 tracks of the album, you can glance the many faces of the The
    Shivas' musical style. From the blistering heat of tracks like "Old Lightning
    Rod" to the cool groove of "Ride On", the record also touches down into the

    The Invention Of Animals (Awaiting Repress)


    A Collection Of Out-of-print And Unreleased Live Recordings


    Limited Edition 180 Gram Vinyl


    The John Lurie National Orchestra featuring John Lurie, Billy Martin and G. Calvin Weston


    Billy Martin's Amulet Records have announced the release of The Invention of Animals by The John Lurie National Orchestra. The archival compilation assembles seven previously unreleased live and out-of-print studio recordings by the acclaimed musician, actor and visual artist John Lurie leading his early 1990s' trio with percussionists Billy Martin and G. Calvin Weston.


    The three of us got together to try and write stuff for my band The Lounge Lizards, but what happened between the three of us was magical. After about a year of playing live it really came together, says John Lurie. There is something so unique and beautiful about this music. I don't think there is anything else like it.


    Billy Martin adds: John and I share the idea that this is like someone discovered a field recording of a lost civilization. Some strange and beautiful tribe unlike any other known to man.


    The Invention of Animals opens with Flutter, one of four National Orchestra performances culled from the soundtrack of John Lurie's 1991 television series, Fishing With John. Also drawn from that same soundtrack are The Beast, Little and Ignore The Giant. The additional studio recording included here is the title track to the only official John Lurie National Orchestra album Men With Sticks released in 1993. Rounding out the collection are two previously unreleased live recordings. I Came To Visit Here For Awhile was preserved at the Threadwaxing Space in New York City on May 7, 1993. The album's centerpiece and title track, The Invention of Animals, running at 19-minutes-plus, was captured by highly regarded sound engineer Claudia Engelhart from a performance on February 12, 1994 in Thessaloniki, Greece.


    John Lurie first became known for his work in the late '70s leading the band The Lounge Lizards, which went on to make music for 20 years. During this time, Lurie recorded 22 albums and composed scores for over 20 movies, including Stranger than Paradise, Down by Law, Mystery Train, Clay Pigeons, Animal Factory and Get Shorty, which earned him a Grammy nomination. Lurie also starred in three films directed by Jim Jarmusch, as well as a host of other films. He wrote, directed and starred in the aforementioned cult classic Fishing with John, a series that is now part of The Criterion Collection. Lurie is also responsible for the incredible music of Marvin Pontiac. Lurie emerged onto the art scene in the spring of 2004, when he had his first painting exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery. Since then Lurie's work has been exhibited in esteemed galleries throughout the world. His solo museum exhibits include P.S.1. Contemporary Arts Center in New York, Musee Des Beaux-Arts De Montreal, the Musee d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean in Luxembourg and the Watari Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, who gave their entire museum over to the presentation of Lurie's work. Both the Wadsorth Athenaeum in Connecticut and The Museum of Modern Art in New York have acquired his work for their permanent collections.


    The Invention of Animals by The John Lurie National Orchestra features a painting by John Lurie as its cover art.

    The Mechanics Of Hovering Flight

    In a year of constant touring with her many projects, Kendl Winter has taken her love of superstition to the birds, literally: bluebirds mean good luck, chickadees mean call home, and a whippoorwills morning song is a sign of a good day. And so it follows that she would name The Mechanics of Hovering Flight, her second full-length K Records release, for the hummingbird and its opposing ideas of flight and motionlessness. A traveler, a dreamer, a banjo player, Kendl sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of her tour van and counts the days until she returns home to her house boat to write songs on her banjo through the rainy afternoons.


    Growing out of her previous release, Apple Core, some songs on The Mechanics of Hovering Flight are folk. Some are bluegrass. Some smack a bit more of country, with twangy guitar and foot-stomping rhythm, but somehow Kendl has created an album that is one moving piece, that tells a story between the liner notes. Perhaps it is her voice. Unwavering, at times haunting, Kendls song reminds one of the legendary Lucinda Williams. Perhaps its her pure dedication to writing the perfect song that serves her so well, to write a song that plays to the seasons, to the harvest, and speaks to the truth about life. About love. About the simple love of a singer and her banjo.


    Recorded with Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studios, the 13-songs of The Mechanics of Hovering Flight are fluid and rich. In line with her organic vision, Kendl invited her friends to record and sing on many tracks. Her partner Joe Capoccia plays bass, Austin Cooper and Kevin Raspberry play the drums, Derek Johnson plays cello and buddy Pam Margon plays fiddle. Their joy and spirit of community are palpable, even in the darker songs of the album. But it is Kendl who is storyteller, who takes the listener by the ears and holds them, captivated, until she is finished.

    Cells

    Four years and four EPs on, Keating is still something of an enigma. He doesn't prey on fame, he does very few interviews and he isn't part of a DJ crew: he has always preferred to let his music speak for itself. He's been in no hurry to release a record either - until now, that is. Keating has found a home on Different Recordings, which counts club crusaders like Tiga, Felix Da Housecat and Vitalic among its roster, and is finally ready to present his mission statement: Cells.


    An album is such a personal manifesto, he says, of why he has waited until now to release Cells, and, in some ways, I didn't feel as if I'd earned that. I hadn't got their full attention yet. He should, however, give himself more credit. Since Mars, Keating has released another chart-nudging single, I Think I Like It, remixed with everyone from Hot Chip and Gossip to Calvin Harris and Sway, produced three memorable mixes for Radio 1 and appeared on huge party bills with the biggest names in dance music. He has also started a label, Blood Music, and has hosted its showcases at Social Club in Paris and London's Fabric. And he has just dropped a new EP, Yes/No, to ready fans for his debut long-player. The world, as it happens, is bloodthirstily waiting: Cells is one of the most anticipated dance albums of 2012.


    It's a daring one at that. Cells is an 11-track distillation of Keating's surreal vision, an electronic masterpiece skewered by his love of the macabre, the uncanny and the sinister. He has trapped his signature breed of savage, Godzilla-strength basslines and laser-blazing four-to-the-floor inside his very own suspense thriller.

    It Can Be Done!

    It Can Be Done! is an album of new beginnings. The past year has seen Kendl Winter leave the successful bluegrass group The Blackberry Bushes to tour the country as a solo act, walking her banjo into dark bars, smoky music halls and packed amphitheaters night after night. It's also full of intimacy. With a voice that is marvelously unique and bold, and songs that are both classically poetic and rooted deep in her own experience, Kendl draws upon an old-time Americana and bluegrass bent that brings to mind the haunting vocal work of Karen Dalton and Gillian Welch. Her banjo work on the album is striking, showcasing a kind of expertise that comes from years of companionship with a beloved instrument. It Can Be Done! is a victory album of sorts, and Kendl's third release on K, the follow up to her beautiful 2012 landmark The Mechanics of Hovering Flight.


    Recorded by Calvin Johnson on reel-to-reel tape at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, WA, on It Can Be Done! Kendl is backed by The Summer Gold, Austin Cooper (drums), Joe Capoccia (guitar) and Derek Johnson (cello). Together they explored her year of new horizons. In sweet spinning songs like "Centrifugal Forces," Kendl makes even the awkward, arduous task of foreign laundry seem a steady triumph: "I'm out walking, Tulsa wind, stumbling in place again. Who knew it would be so hard to do your laundry in Berlin?" The following lead tracks "Rosie" and "Dreaming of Babylon," both convey the spirit Kendl has been working from this past year, the very idea that she can choose to live her life outside of cultural expectations and guidelines, even if when its difficult, even if when terrifying. That It is, in fact, possible to manifest the life of your dreams. It can be done!

    Inventions

    After releasing the excellent double A single for 'No Expression/Alone' the other week, it was very nice indeed to get my first listen of 'Inventions' from The Sufis - an album that comes in collaboration from arguably two of the most interesting labels out there at the minute in Ample Play and Burger Records.


    ...After receiving critical acclaim for their debut last year, the psych-pop band from Nashville, Tennessee, which is made up of Calvin Laporte and Evan Smith, are back and have expanded their pop sound with great results on their latest offering.


    Kicking off with 'All Of The Time', the band transport you back in time. With the groove and thunderous drum role, there is more than a hint of 'Revolver' and tracks like 'Taxman' in its sound, although the record has a lot more to it than just that. Short sharp bursts of ingenious songwriting are littered all over the record. The harmonica and cymbal crashing led beauty of 'Most Peculiar Happening Cat' or the floating melody of 'Wallflower' are great examples of this. In fact, it's worth noting that only one song on the album actually runs over the 3 minute mark. These guys don't do epic - but they make great tunes.


    The album is a collection of great ideas all captured beautifully in a style of their own. Using old school equipment and effects they've invented themselves, the sound is impressive, with an array of instrumentation being used throughout. Personal favourites are many on the album and 'I'll Come To See You' and the more up tempo 'Expressions', which is probably the most rocking track on the LP, are excellent. 'The End', where the maraca beat changes to tambourines is nothing short of quality, as trumpet, piano and excellent guitar work thrown into the mix make this and 'Gotta Get Away' my personal picks - although to be honest it's pretty difficult to choose with so many great songs.


    Fans of the first record will not be disappointed one bit. In fact, the band have stepped it up another level on 'Inventions' and this is an album that you will definitely want to get your hands on. Another sold out vinyl? I think so.

    Sooner Or Later


    Sooner Or Later Brings Back Into Print All Neo Boys Releases That Have Long Been Unavailable To All But Scouring Collectors, And Also Releases Material That Never Saw The Light Of Day


    In 1978, the city of Portland, OR erupted with a radical form of artistic expression some refer to as "punk" or "new wave." Restless teenage crowds were gathering in quiet alleys and meeting halls, anxious to shake off their cultural ties, and at the heart of this legendary movement was the powerful all-girl punk group the Neo Boys. Though an active band for just five years (1978-82), teenage sisters Kt (bass) and Kim Kincaid (vocals), together with Pat Baum (drums) and guitarists Jennifer Labianco and Megan Hengtes forged a place for women in the growing punk rock scene, and redefined gender roles in the 80's movement of rock and roll.


    With their bleached hair, melodic bass lines, surfy guitar strums and straight-forward poetic lyrics, they were a stand-out in the rising new wave/punk scene. Neo Boys regularly shared bills with Greg Sage and The Wipers, opened for Nico, played their first show with Television and participated in founding Portland's first all-ages collective DIY performance space, Clockwork Joes.


    Yet somehow this incredible legacy was nearly lost in the annals of history. Calvin Johnson, a Neo Boys fan since hearing their first single thirty years ago, worked with the band members to track down the missing tapes of their recordings through a rabbit hole of Northwest basements and closets. The result is Sooner or Later (KLP247), a comprehensive double LP collection of Neo Boys recordings from 1977-1982. Included are their long out-of-print 1980 7" EP (released on Greg Sage's Trap Records), and the 1982 self-released EP Crumbling Myths. Sooner or Later also contains studio recordings, early demos and live sessions that have never before been available to the public.


    Sooner or Later is divided between the Neo Boys' early, raw punk era and their more accomplished '80s era during which they recorded Crumbling Myths (which was originally meant to be an album but was cut down to a seven song EP at the last moment). "Time Keeps Time," a bouncy bass-heavy track, made popular again by Grass Widow's cover on their Milo Minute 7", demonstrates the Neo Boys timeless appeal. And Kim Kincaid's soft, not-too-sweet vocals in "Nothing To Fear," which makes two appearances on the collection, speaks to the power of the band's ideals, and the importance of pursuing your artistic vision, even in the face of adversity.


    The Neo Boys were an outspoken feminist fixture in the development of the NW underground music scene, and this legacy is cemented with the release of their complete recordings, Sooner or Later.


    "Neo Boys have been an influence not only on my approach to melody, but also to a world of imagination where anything is possible. Their music is just as pertinent and relatable today as it was 30 years ago, and with existential songs about alienation, societal problems and love, they created a world I have taken refuge in during times when I felt the effects of narrow attitudes about gender and women's voices in music." - Hannah Lew, Grass Widow
