    Within And Without


    Washed Out is the operational alias for Atlanta, GAs Ernest Greene, and their first full-length, Within and Without will be released via Sub Pop Records. Greene recorded Within and Without with Ben Allen, who, among a great many other things, co-produced Animal Collectives Merriweather Post Pavillion, Gnarls Barkleys St. Elsewhere and Deerhunters Halcyon Digest.


    In 2009, Washed Out released two critically-acclaimed EPs; Life of Leisure (Mexican Summer) and High Times (Mirror Universe Tapes). Most recently, the Washed Out song Feel It All Around, from Life of Leisure, was chosen as the theme song for the new and very funny IFC series Portlandia, which features Saturday Night Live cast member Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kinney/Sub Pop alum and current Wild Flag member Carrie Brownstein.

    Rooms Filled With Light

    Rooms Filled With Light is the sophomore release from the London-based indie pop band Fanfarolo and follow-up to their internationally acclaimed 2009 debut Reservoir. The album marks a major step forward for Fanfarlo and finds the band incorporating new textures into their already eclectic sonic palette, replacing acoustic guitars with electric and using synths and samplers instead of mandolins and glockenspiels. Rooms Filled With Light retains the lyrical and musical themes of its predecessor while expanding upon them with increased dynamics and more emphasis on atmosphere. The 12-song set was produced by by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley) and engineered by award-winning producer/engineer David Wrench (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything, Beth Orton) at North Wales Bryn Derwen Recording Studio.

    The Third Studio Album From Dot Hacker


    Pressed On Audiophile-Grade Vinyl At Pallas


    Mastered At Infrasonic Sound


    Fronted By Josh Klinghoffer, Guitarist Of Red Hot Chili Peppers


    Dot Hacker is the project of California-based musicians
    Josh Klinghoffer, Clint Walsh, Eric Gardner, and Jonathan
    Hischke. Collectively, the members have played with a
    seemingly never-ending list of artists, including Gnarls
    Barkley, Broken Bells, PJ Harvey, Morrissey, The Shins,
    Beck, Hella, Tom Morello, and so many more. Most
    notably, guitarist and lead singer Josh Klinghoffer plays
    guitar in the Red Hot Chili Peppers.


    Their third studio effort, N°3, follows the band's 2014 two-part
    album, How's Your Process?, and expands on the
    "piercing hooks and transfixing arrangements" (Billboard)
    that album had to offer. N°3 finds the band at their most
    musically creative and adventurous, and for anyone
    familiar with their past work, that says quite a lot.

    Southern Gothic

    Constellations stomping ground is Atlanta, GA, and in the wee small hours of the morning, A-Town can get awfully bizarre.



    The record is all about what happens in Atlanta from 2 AM until noon. Your tour guide on this madcap adventure is the magnetic frontman and vocalist Elijah Jones, the ringleader of the twisted circus that is The Constellations, who spent two years writing and recording the album with producer Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley), along with some storied cronies from the local scene. Not that they set out with specific intentions. Far from it. All of us wanted to do a record about Atlanta, but we never said it in words, recalls Jones. But the deeper we got into it, the more we realized we were writing a concept album.


    Atlanta is strange, he adds, because were all basically pushed together. The hip-hop heads, punk rockers, and indie kids all rub shoulders and mix it up. Southern Gothic reflects that inclusive diversity in its far-reaching sound. The record was designed to sound lyrically and melodically very thought out, and sonically very disorganized, comments Allen. One expects nothing less from a singer who cites Tom Waits and Cee-Lo of Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley as his musical heroes, working with a producer who name-checks Fela Kuti and Gorillaz among their records key influences.


    The bands name refers to the myriad musicians from the regional scene who either contributed to making Southern Gothic, or have since played in The Constellations live band. One luminary who drops in is Cee-Lo, whose verse on the electro-rocker Love Is A Murder prompted a completely overhaul the track underneath. Another guest is suburban rapper Asher Roth, lending his playful rhymes to Were Here To Save The Day, among the album's most insidious moments. On the one hand, this dittys sound is pure sing-along bliss, with a gleeful chorus delivered by Elijahs niece and nephew. Yet at the same time, Jones and Roth drop rhymes that lampoon commercial top 40 hip-hop and chest-thumping poseurs.

    Love The Future

    With their debut album Love the Future, the Harvard duo of D.A. Wallach and Maxwell Drummey, have boldy produced an album that is poised to break barriers and set new standards. The glorious She Loves Everybody mixes sensibilities equally drawing on Motown and power-pop. Beneath the Veil throws country twists into hip-hop aesthetics. Neal has echoes of swing, hip-hop and rock with a guitar break paying tribute to Les Paul.


    The band has already been lauded by the press with features such as Spin's Who's Next `08 and Rolling Stone's Artists To Watch. And take it from no less than Pharrell Williams, who signed the unclassifiable duo to his Star Trak/Interscope label after an early copy of the album, recorded by the two largely in a dorm basement studio while they were students at Harvard, was passed from them to his engineer, Drew Coleman.


    It's been a long time since I've heard a project teeming with this sort of musicality and originality, says Williams, the phenomenal artist/producer/trailblazer of Neptunes, N.E.R.D. and various other projects. You're going to watch history unfold with these guys. I feel it in my gut. That works for Wallach and Drummey, who trace an aesthetic lineage from Beethoven to Brian Wilson, from Les Paul to Prince to, well, Pharrell Williams. They see walls coming down with a new generation inspired by innovative artists like Gnarls Barkley and OutKast.

    Road From Memphis

    The Road from Memphis starts with a young Booker T. Jones hauling his stack of newspapers to Phineas Newborn's front yard where, while folding them for his after]school delivery route, he could listen to the jazz great practice piano. It ends with Booker and The Roots roaring through a set of both timeless and contemporary originals (and propulsive covers of Gnarls Barkley's Crazy and Lauren Hill's Everything Is Everything.


    Along for the ride are vocalists Matt Berninger of the National, Yim Yames of My Morning Jacket, Sharon Jones, Lou Reed, and Booker himself, telling the story of how the funk/soul sound that Booker helped invent spiraled out from Memphis, touching The Roots' hometown of Philadelphia, New York (where engineer Gabe Roth has been recreating classic soul sonics for everyone from Sharon Jones to Amy Winehouse), and Detroit.


    Detroit as in Dennis Coffey, legendary Motown session guitarist who introduced driving rock]funk rhythm to hits like Cloud Nine and Ball of Confusion by the Temptations, and brings his Detroit grit to these tracks. The Road from Memphis is classic Memphis soul, and classic Booker in the tradition of Green Onions, but beyond that it is the story of a sound, and how Booker, working with the inheritors of his sound, is keeping a tradition alive.

    Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance


    "The Scottish indie-pop group has managed to
    build a fan base the old-fashioned way: by writing
    old-fashioned songs, the kind that brim with
    melody, sensitivity, cleverness, sophistication, and
    sheer beauty. It's hard to imagine groups like The
    Shins, Arcade Fire, or Vampire Weekend sounding
    like they do without its influence"
    - Entertainment Weekly


    Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance is the longawaited
    follow-up to 2010's Write About Love.
    Produced and mixed at Maze Studios in Atlanta
    by Ben H. Allen III, best known for his work with
    Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, and Raury,
    among others, the band - who have been
    listening to things like vintage Detroit techno
    and Giorgio Moroder - have brought a danceparty
    element into their gorgeous tales of
    sensitive souls navigating a world gone awry. It
    is perhaps the most inspired and wide-reaching
    album Belle and Sebastian have ever made.


    Given that band leader Stuart Murdoch has
    openly declared himself pro-bubblegum before,
    it shouldn't come as a surprise that 'Enter Sylvia
    Plath', 'The Book Of You' and 'Play For Today' have
    keyboard hooks that recall Scandinavian pop
    machines past and present. The filmic loves,
    kitchen sink imagery and baroque touches are
    still there, too, don't worry. It's all about trusting
    in the restorative power of pop music. If you'd

    about Sylvia Plath, you'd trust Belle & Sebastian.

    Attack & Release

    Until now, guitarist-singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney of the Black Keys took an extreme do-it-yourself approach to record making, hunkering down in a basement studio or setting up equipment in one of the abandoned factories of their native Akron, Ohio. Their modus operandi was more seance than session. With a minimal set of tools, they conjured up a big, swaggering blues-rock sound, seemingly drawn from some distant time and place yet too weirdly original to ever be called retro. As Rolling Stone put it in a review of their 2006 Nonesuch debut, Magic Potion, Pure blues rock of this caliber is really timeless.


    For this album, however, the Black Keys decided not to go it alone: Attack and Release is the result of one of the most audacious and eagerly awaited collaborations in alternative rock history. As producer, Auerbach and Carney chose Danger Mouse, the mega-eclectic sonic mastermind behind the Grammy Award-winning Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere and its multi-format hit, Crazy, as well as the music-industry provocateur who created the mother of all mash-ups, The Grey Album. The Black Keys also deigned to work at an established studio, albeit one within driving distance of Akron. Suma Recording, a legendary spot in northeast Ohio renowned for its supply of great vintage gear, provided just the right ambience for the guys. As Carney put it, with genuine affection, Suma smells like a moldy cabin and looks like a haunted house.


    On Attack and Release, Danger Mouse is more creative co-conspirator than traditional figure behind the boards. He doesn't radically alter the duo's sound so much as coax out more of its inherent soulfulness, groove and bittersweet emotion. Two versions of Remember When illustrate how the duo can swing easily from smoldering ballad to thrashing rocker. I'm more pleased with the sound of this record than any one we've ever made, says Carney, and Auerbach concurs: We never let it all go like we did for this one, anything was game. It was just fun to make, and that's why I think it's so successful. The band adds more instrumentation to their mix, including piano, organ and moog synthesizer. Danger Mouse fashions subtle special effects, like the ghostly background choir that surfaces on the moody I Got Mine, which sounds as if it were samples from some old Warner Bros. cartoon. The Black Keys also invited in a few special guests: guitarist Marc Ribot and clarinetist-flautist (and Pat's uncle) Ralph Carney, both veterans of Tom Waits' band and players on countless avant-rock/jazz/noise session. Jessica Lea Mayfield a/k/a Chittlin, an impressive 18 year-old bluegrass/country singer from Kent, Ohio, sings alongside a heart-breakingly plaintive Auerbauch on the slow-dance final cut, Things Ain't Like They Used to Be

    ...Little Broken Hearts

    Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio from the original source recordings!


    200-gram audiophile vinyl double-LP pressing by Quality Record Pressings. Gatefold, tip-on jackets on heavy cardboard stock, deluxe high quality!


    Part of Analogue Productions' reissue of the Norah Jones' solo catalog, featuring the individual albums Come Away With Me, Feels Like Home, Not Too Late, The Fall and Little Broken Hearts. Each album will also be featured in an exclusive LP box set to come that will include Norah's Covers album!


    Norah Jones' Little Broken Hearts was created in collaboration with producer Brian Danger Mouse Burton, best known as the producing ace for Gnarls Barkley with singer Cee Lo Green. Jones and Danger Mouse wrote all of the material for the album together at the producer's studio in Los Angeles, and the duo performed all of the instruments themselves. This is their second time working together - Jones previously appeared as a vocalist on Rome, Danger Mouse's collaboration with Italian composer Daniele Luppi. Though Little Broken Hearts is the result of a partnership between Jones and Danger Mouse, the record will be credited only to her.


    The album's sound ranges from experimental chamber serenades to stark, electronic-embellished confessions. It's obviously very different than anything Norah's ever done, Burton says. I don't know what people will think - I hope they like it, and she doesn't lose a bunch of fans.


    I'd never gone in with nothing and wrote songs from scratch, and I'd never played bass before on a record, Jones told Rolling Stone. I was out of my comfort zone - but I was comfortable because we're friends.


    Adds Burton, The best thing was having just the two of us on those first sessions, not a whole band. Norah had as many, if not more, great ideas than I did.


    One of the boldest departures is Take It Back, which features fuzzed-out guitars and spooky, distorted vocals. I never knew how to get weird sounds, Jones says. It was all about finding a balance between those effects and making sure my voice was clear and sounded like me.


    In its own quiet way, Little Broken Hearts hews closer to heartbreak classics like Marvin Gaye's Here, My Dear than to anything in Jones' back catalog, Rolling Stone reports, This time, I've been way less concerned with self-editing, Jones says. I'm not sad, but there's a lot of hurt in there. And it felt great to say what I felt and put it down on tape. Doing that made me so happy! This album is all about saying things that needed to be said.

    The Child Of Lov

    180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl


    For Fans of: Gnarls Barkley, Beck, J Dilla, Gorillaz, Danger Mouse


    There's something about Cole Williams's voice that conjures pictures in the mind.
    Not only through the intense and compelling vocals of his recordings, either.
    There's a catch to it, a rugged rasp weathered beyond his years, that shows that his
    singing style - rich in the cadences of funk, blues and soul. Spend any time with
    them, and it's abundantly clear that Cole - or if you prefer, The Child Of Lov - is a
    true modern soul man.


    This much we know: Cole has lived in London, Paris and Amsterdam where he's
    currently based. He has, for various reasons, spent a good deal of time alone with
    music. His first inspirations were his mother's Stevie Wonder albums. By the age
    of 13 he was listening to hip hop and neo-soul, and began to try and make his own
    beats on his computer, and initially to rap. At 14, he began to teach himself guitar
    and piano, and became obsessed with the off-kilter hip hop beats of J Dilla and
    especially Madlib, the master of the thickly-layered psychedelic groove. Inspired
    by the combination of unorthodox musicality with hip hop attitude, as he picked
    out his own melodies and slowly developed his instrumental skills; it all came
    together.


    So here we are: from those years' worth of self-disciplined musical study and
    practice recordings, then a period of adjusting to their exposure to the world, have
    come the tracks that became The Child Of Lov album. They're layered with all
    the intensity and dedication that Cole has put into his listening and learning, and
    with his passion for the influences. Check out "Give Me" - the peculiar stutter of
    his abstract hip hop heroes Madlib and Dilla is there, but so is his first inspiration
    Stevie Wonder as well as brilliantly discordant hints of Prince and even Tom Waits
    in full junkyard prophet mode. Listen to the powerfully defiant "Fly" and wonder
    that the powerful, gospel-infused voice is that of a young man, and not a soul
    veteran beaten but unbowed by life's tribulations and soak up the mournful opener
    "Call Me Up" - the sort of track you'd always hoped Sly Stone might pull himself
    together and make one day

    Paracosm

    The music recorded by Ernest Greene as Washed Out has been nothing if not dreamy, and on his second full-length, Paracosm, he takes the dreamlike,
    otherworldly atmospheres of his music a huge leap further.


    The title refers to a phenomenon in which people create detailed imaginary worlds, and the idea of escaping is all over Paracosm's music and lyrics. Paracosm finds Greene reaching beyond the computers and synths that filled Washed Out's previous recordings, expanding his sonic palette to include over 50 different instruments, the most significant of which turned out to be old keyboards like the
    Mellotron, Chamberlin, Novatron, and Optigan.


    "I've grown as a songwriter to the point where I
    want to have more involved arrangements, and that's really hard to do with sampling," says Greene. "These machines were kind of a happy medium: The sounds have a very worn, distressed quality about them, much like an old sample. But they also offer much more flexibility because they're playable."


    Following two years on the road in support of
    the critically-acclaimed Within And Without, and the lauded Life Of Leisure EP (which can still be heard during Portlandia's opening credits), he and his wife, Blair (who plays in the Washed Out live band), relocated from the big-city hubbub of Atlanta to a house outside Athens, where Greene could shut out the real world in favor of an alternate universe of his own making. Listeners will be immediately struck by Paracosm's seamless melding of organic and synthetic sounds, and its lighter tone. Greene says: "I knew from the beginning I wanted this record to be optimistic, very much a daytime-sounding album. I think the last record felt more nocturnal in some ways. This one I just imagined being outside, surrounded by a beautiful, natural environment."


    With its gorgeous execution and uplifting attitude, Paracosm is primed to be this year's summer record. And it promises to do what its name suggests: take listeners to a better world.


    Paracosm was recorded at in Atlanta with Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley, Washed Out - Within and Without) at Maze Studios.

    Shame Shame

    There was this feeling inside me going into making this record that we'd never made an album before, says guitarist/vocalist Scott McMicken of Dr. Dog's Shame, Shame, their Anti-debut and the first album made outside the safe confines of their home studio. Having evolved from a band whose primary creative outlet was the album making process into one that favored the energy of their live performances, they knew they wanted to document the new dynamic they had developed on the road. Producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith) was brought in to help peel back the intricate arrangements of last album Fate to reveal the raw immediacy of a tight five-man unit honing their craft.


    Dr. Dog has created a song cycle of doubt and despair, bookended with the woozily swirling harmonies of Leaman's lonely opener Stranger and the harsh self-critique of the title track, a gnarled admission that sometimes it's best to admit your mistakes and move on. Their most openly autobiographical release, ranging from McMicken's exploration of West Philly underlife in Shadow People to his account of two soul-bearing late night conversations in Jackie Wants a Black Eye, Shame, Shame is an album whose dark themes are soothed by bright harmonies, taut guitar riffs, and soaring melodies. Shame, Shame is the release that will announce Dr. Dog to a wider world, a world waiting for the timeless songwriting and melodies of their finest album.

    Constricting Rage Of The Merciless

    From the combatant onset of Poisonous Existence In Reawakening, and the tense, hammering momentum of Unraveling Paradise, to the punkish urgency of FBS and the fiendish cascades of Schadenfreude (literally meaning the pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others), Goatwhore spew their unadulterated, subterranean metal as channeled through the historic likes of Motörhead and Bathory, with the insatiable hunger of a pack of wild boars. These are true requiems of revolt, at once predatory, epic, hate-fueled and sadistic. Due at least in part to the sheer synergy that comes from living in a van together for weeks on end, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless is razor sharp in musicianship literally writhing beneath the weight of its own sonic enormity. Duet's thick, gnarled guitar tones and bestial vocal accents coil seamlessly around Simmons' and Harvey's, brash, chest-heaving rhythms. It's all punctuated by the imposing voice and cynical prose of Falgoust who literally ran laps around the studio before taking to the mic to summon a more frantic, rasping edge to his signature tirades, now more enunciated than ever before. When Falgoust howls, WE ARE COMING TO SMASH YOUR IDOLS! (in traditional metal rager Baring Teeth For Revolt), souls weaken, forests die, planets implode. In a saturated metal landscape where sub-genres spawn sub-sub-genres and the very definition of metal seems repeatedly distorted by cross-pollinating madness, sacred are the bands who to stay true to their proverbial roots without repeating them.

    Love Is Here

    Love Is Here is the debut studio album by indie rock band Starsailor.


    Starsailor was already a critic's darling in the band's native England during mid-2001, and the group's painfully melodic debut, Love Is Here, poised the band to rise in the shadows of Doves, Coldplay, and Travis. Starsailor, however, isn't as polished as its counterparts, but that's not to say Love Is Here isn't a beautiful piece of work. It's less lilting than Coldplay's Parachutes, and frontman James Walsh's aching vocals shape his angularity as a singer/songwriter.


    Starsailor is a young band, and Love Is Here illustrates the group's sharp intellect inside basic acoustics. Singles such as the passionately violent Alcoholic and melancholic dark hues of Fever touch upon Starsailor's own pop stylings. The band isn't typically jaunty, for the members of Starsailor are a bit cynical. Lyrics reflect battles with self-discovery, independence, and being lovelorn; however, they're matches of a survivor.


    Talk Her Down, one of the album's most gnarling tracks, bounces with light psychedelic patterns, and Good Souls is probably Starsailor's closest rock & roll moment. The live soundscape found on Love Is Here sets up the simplistic beauty of this new band. They didn't go for a grand bombast of crashing guitars and angst-ridden stories similar to Oasis and Manic Street Preachers. They go for something more positive as well -- each song soars with intricate musicianship and melodic lushness. Wigan native Richard Ashcroft would be pleased.

    Sterilize (Pre-Order)

    Since 1988, UNSANE has pounded the planet with their caustic grooves and foundation-crumbling riffs, having released LPs through a wide range of labels including Matador/Atlantic, Amphetamine Reptile, Relapse, Ipecac, Alternative Tentacles, and others, not to mention a wide range of singles, splits, and live albums. The band's gnarled blend of punk, metal, noise, and hardcore helping to define the AmRep sound alongside other forerunners of the style, Today Is The Day, The Jesus Lizard, Helmet, Tad, Cows, Halo Of Flies, Melvins, and others.


    Closing a five-year gap since the 2012 release of their Wreck LP through Alternative Tentacles, UNSANE makes a vicious return with the pummeling Sterilize, a record that recalls the most defining elements of the band's seminal Scattered, Smothered, And Covered and Occupational Hazard albums, surging with the band's unrelenting singular sound created by guitarist/vocalist Chris Spencer, bassist/vocalist Dave Curran, and drummer Vinnie Signorelli. Sterilize was produced by UNSANE, recorded by Dave Curran at Gatos Trail Studios in Yucca Valley, California, mixed by Andrew Schneider at Acre in New York City, and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering in Chicago.


    Sterilize showcases UNSANE sounding as dense and damaging as ever, and sees them remaining as necessary as ever, nearly three decades since they began

    A Hairshirt Of Purpose

    Pile have never released the same album twice, since the project's 2007 beginnings the Boston quartet have been continuously evolving, pushing expectations, and obliterating good sensibility. A Hairshirt of Purpose, the band's fifth album continues that tradition in a different light. Following the raw intensity and unpredictability of You're Better Than This, the band settled down to create an album about "the joys of solitude" and "the inescapable selfishness of every action," exploring the limits of the studio in the process. If their last album was a challenge to their audience, A Hairshirt of Purpose is a challenge to the band itself.


    Recorded at home in Boston at The Record Co. the studio's big windows and close proximity marked a change from the band's previous recordings. Pile vocalist/guitarist Rick Maguire shared, "we were at home and we could see the sun, and I think both of those things lent themselves to a more focused and deliberate record." There's a warmth and radiant accessibility to be found throughout the album as the band experimented with different instruments (violin, viola, piano, organs, synths, banjo, etc) and a resounding push toward clarity. Pile balance their ferocious tendencies with moments of beauty, building tension with release never too far behind. Well known as "your favorite band's favorite band" and for a tireless work ethic, Pile have earned their following from years of DIY touring and a humble approach to uncompromising performances. Never afraid to switch styles, Pile's music has morphed over the years, embracing both the ferocious and gentle sides of punk, indie, folk, and noise rock, delivering their own brand of gnarled intensity. Since coming together as a full band in 2009, Pile have toured as much as their lives collectively allow, playing over 600 shows spread out over the US, Canada, UK and Europe.

    Muddy Waters Sings Big Bill (Speakers Corner)

    In 1960, when Muddy Waters recorded this album as a tribute to Big Bill Broonzy two years after his death, he could be sure of Broonzy's approval. »Oh yeah, Muddy is a real singer of the Blues«, Big Bill, that Mississippi foundation stone, was heard to say early on in Muddy Waters' career, although the sound of the man 15 years his junior could be likened to new shoots coming out of the gnarled root named the Blues.



    Full of confidence after a "Best Of" compilation released on the Chess label in 1959 and his legendary appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, Muddy set down his own Broonzy songs. It goes almost without saying that such successful numbers as "I Feel So Good" and "Tell Me Baby" are overflowing with a 'Chicago feeling' which gets right under your skin. Pulsating with the metallic heartbeat of the electric guitar and the gyrating licks which James Cotton conjures out of his harmonica, the cover title amalgamates the individual styles of two top-notch Blues musicians to produce a highly emotional mixture. And let's not forget the band formed around keyboarder Otis Spann, their fellow musician of many years' standing. Just listen carefully to this small but excellent ensemble and you will certainly forget the banal term 'rhythm group'!





    Musicians:



    • Muddy Waters (vocal)

    • James Cotton (harmonica)

    • Pat Hare (guitar)

    • Otis Spann (piano)

    • Andrew Stephenson (bass)

    • Francey Clay, Willie Smith (drums)




    Recording: July and August 1959 in Chicago




    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun

    Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun begins with Crater, a ragged anthem that erupts with frayed guitar and thundering rhythm. Dallas and Travis Good's trudging riffs light the low-slung growl of Gord Downie:


    Hello there / Gentle Son / A crater / We're creating!


    Crater is an arrival: the mission statement of a young band unhinged, igniting ten songs of visceral punk rock exultation. Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun is a spirited exploration of the darkness surrounding daylight, a rallying cry from the Secret Museum of Mankind:


    Crater! / Getting crushed in our dreams / Or in our dreams / Doing all the crushing


    Downie's words burn in unison with the charging Sadies, the mantra of a band forged out of primal necessity. This album is a vital, reckless, and ecstatic moment, gleaming with the proud imperfections of a group discovering its voice.


    It came together urgently but slowly, after the long-time Toronto friends first recorded together for Lake Ontario Waterkeepers in 2006. Fleeting sessions over the next seven years yielded finished songs in immediate, alchemical takes. Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun is the action of first-thought-best-thought.


    The project's namesake, The Conquering Sun fuses The Sadies' rusted psychedelia with Downie's humble, volatile wail. Mike Belitsky's roiling drums, and Sean Dean's sure, standing bass spur the band through uncharted desert-scapes.


    Working the fugitive dust / Under the conquering sun / Nature, please be good to us / Under the conquering sun


    Each song brims with energy, electricity embellishing a simple, rustic core. Acoustic inflections are cached in the album's array of fiery environments, staggering in its balance of ferocity and craft.


    Downie cries out possessed on It Didn't Start To Break My Heart Until This Afternoon: a pulsating blast of brash guitars and fuzzed-out gnarl.


    Drive it like we stole it / Through the snowflakes, into the cold of the sun


    On Budget Shoes, guitars shine over the tumbling bedrock of desolate but hopeful imagism. Downie writes in a universal voice, with a chorus taunting shadow from light. On Los Angeles Times, nations gather under that conquering blaze, singing unanimous poetry of promise and provocation:


    Raise a glass of hope / Raise a glass of liberty / And a glass of something else / May we be at ease with ourselves!


    The Sadies' effortlessly invoke this primitive emotion, intuiting Downie's themes with rollicking instrumental passages. On Devil Enough, Downie's solemn musings are liberated by The Sadies' roving plainsong; sobering internal sentiment brought to life with the flame of improvisation:


    You're making me drop things / I can't hold my cup / My state of being / Isn't what it was / The light the light / And my eyes adjust / What?s for sure is Devil Enough


    One Good Fast Job sneers like a siren, blunt guitars circling Downie's snarl. Demand Destruction pops with environmental pressure, coaxing an answer to a nuclear dilemma:


    And as the sun went down behind the shadow / Of this invisible war / You say, Is this accident ever over anymore?


    Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun spans depths and ages in its relentless half-hour, before concluding on an only note of reprieve. Saved dwells in the light of darkness, capturing our silent vibration of debt to the source. The album's last moments glint in the rapturous calm of collective awe:


    You say nothing can be saved / It all goes away / Darkness falls and colours fade / And the music gets so loud it flaps your pant legs


    Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun boils with hope and irreverence; toils with fire as a tool and a curse. This is the combustion of brotherhood and dissent: music of wisdom and innocence:


    It is the work, day is your word, night is the glue.
