    The Hum

    Hookworms return with their new album, The Hum, which follows the Leeds quintet's debut album Pearl Mystic - a record that steadily went on to become
    one of 2013's most impactful breakout statements in the UK!


    Even more ferocious and uncompromising than its predecessor and yet more
    melodic and focused, The Hum further cements the band's status as a vital
    force in British independent music. The Hum takes the blueprint of Pearl
    Mystic - proto-punk, garage rock, Washington DC hardcore, 80's British
    spacerock - and further stamps it with the band's seal. Leaner, meaner and
    more propulsive thanks to the muscular playing of new drummer JN, the
    record boasts both the most straight-up punk song the band have written to
    date in eviscerating opener "The Impasse" ("we wanted it to sound like
    Suicide if they had a full band", explains MJ) and moments of patient,
    widescreen beauty only hinted at previously.


    "We were writing Pearl Mystic to an audience in the same way your diary has
    an audience", says guitarist SS. "It's written to one but if no one ever reads
    it that's not a big deal. This time round though we knew we had a really clear
    audience, so The Hum is really about different freedoms and constraints -
    with Pearl Mystic the possibilities were almost too vast, this time around we
    had a much clearer idea of what the record should be like and that became
    freeing because we didn't need to worry about its direction so much. That
    word "free" is a good way to approach The Hum, a record that could only be
    made by a band in total command of their personality.

    Further inspired by Frank Schröder, designed by Peter Ledermann... Soundsmith's NEW top of the line moving
    Iron cartridge ~ The Hyperion ~ The laws of physics dictate how moving systems operate, therefore cartridges must strictly adhere to first principles to get sublime results. In accord with these laws, the Hyperion's Cactus needle Cantilever has the best of all worlds - thanks to Mother Nature. Other Cantilevers are synthesized -
    we GROW these.


    Superior cantilever designs have always employed tapered cantilevers - Hard to do with aluminum, and all but impossible with the super hard and durable materials, such as boron, ruby or diamond. Cantilevers must also have dualistic qualities that are mutually exclusive; both stiffness and damping are required.


    The tapered, longitudinal stacked columnar fibers, stacked and damped with desicated resin are exactly what one would build if one could - fortunately "nature" has done it for us. The best of both worlds - extreme rigidity, internal damping, and tremendous strength define what we feel is the best cantilever that can be built. Used in conjunction with our most highly refined Moving Iron cartridge design, the Hyperion has realized our hope - to further resolve our enjoyment of vinyl replay. Our moving iron design allows the required stationary magnetic parts to be rigidly held in exact position at all times thereby allowing dramatic reduction of the moving mass in the generating system. Our fully shielded design allows totally hum free operation, RF shielding, and extreme mechanical stability.

    Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful

    180 Gram R.T.I. Vinyl Pressing


    From the Original Kama Sutra Mono Masters


    Greenwich Village, 1964: While the folk boom is still in progress, other musics began seeping into the corners and clubs of lower Manhattan. Rock, once down for the count, came back with a vengeance, largely thanks to a klatch of young British bands. Roots music, especially blues, grew rapidly in popularity as folk enthusiasts expanded their horizons. In this intoxicating milieu, John Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Joe Butler and Steve Boone united to form the Lovin' Spoonful. Originally a jug band with folk roots, they readily incorporated the sounds they heard all around them. Combining British Invasion jangle with the blues' growl and folk's attention to lyrical detail, they forged a sound completely their own. Accomplished musicians all, they had two secret weapons: the guitar virtuosity of Zal Yanovsky and the rising songwriting talent of John Sebastian.


    The first Spoonful single, "Do You Believe in Magic," took AM radio by storm in June of that year, reaching #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Featuring an irrepressible melody, a chiming autoharp and Yanovsky's tasteful fills, it was an audacious debut. Their inaugural Kama Sutra LP, also titled Do You Believe in Magic, followed in November 1965. Containing three other Sebastian originals and one song credited to the band, the balance of the LP contained traditional blues covers and songs by contemporary writers. Reaching #32 on the Billboard Top 200, it established the band as one of country's brightest new talents.


    By the release of their second album, Daydream, in March 1966, the band's songwriting chops had fully blossomed, particularly Sebastian's, who wrote or co-wrote all but one of the songs. The album's first single, "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice" reached #10 on the Hot 100 and married a signature Yanovsky riff with a galloping piano part to form an indelible hook. The title track, a mid-tempo reverie with an ace whistling solo, did even better, soaring to #2. Skipping ahead a few decades, the album cut "Butchie's Tune" was used to great effect in season five of Mad Men.


    The band soon returned with Hums of the Lovin' Spoonful. Consciously working in different styles, the band essayed country ("Nashville Cats"), folk balladry ("Rain on the Roof") and psych- tinged rock ("Summer in the City"), among other sounds. This time, all the songs were originals and it was the last full album recorded by the original quartet. It stands as a triumphant ending to one of the most exciting chapters in the American rock story of the 1960s, a perfect encapsulation of a time when it seemed anything was possible in music. Sourced from the original Kama Sutra mono masters, these masterpieces are pressed at RTI on 180gm vinyl.

    Electronic Sound Constructions

    A hypnotic, transcendent document that generates the warm analogue hum we've all come to associate with the Bristol Sound. The ESC recordings are characterized by distant vintage synth drones anchored by looped, jazzy drumming; both are underpinned by the golden, haunting emanation of vinyl taching at 16RPM... coalescing beautifully as immaculately stoned rhythm in the background.

    Further Out


    Colored Vinyl


    Produced/Engineered/Mixed/Mastered Completely Analog By Matt Talbot (Hum)


    Further Out, the anticipated debut full length from the reclusive Indiana trio
    Cloakroom, can be defined best as an exploratory sonic mission. From the album's
    opener, "Paperweight," the crushing force of a wall of distorted bass and pounding
    drumming collapses to uncover the airy, reverb-soaked vocals of guitarist Doyle Martin,
    who's carrying a sullen burden that seems just as weighed down. From the headbanging
    heaviness of "Moon Funeral" to the ethereal moments of songs like "Starchild Skull"
    and Mesmer," Cloakroom's output is the end result of researching seemingly dissimilar
    elements like atmospheric post-rock, punishingly slow stoner metal, and cathartic emo
    and how their best qualities can work into a final, organic sound, masterfully navigated
    by the expert and completely analog production of Matt Talbot. Further Out boasts the
    timelessness of a classic record: it is expansive and exploratory while still reflective and
    referential to the astral tendencies of predecessors like Hum and Jesu.

    Tightropes

    Tall Tales And The Silver Lining is a Los Angeles based band led by songwriter Trevor Beld Jimenez. Beld Jimenez grew up on the sounds of '70's AM radio, along with L.A. classics like Jackson Browne, Court and Spark-era Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Crazy Horse and the Byrds. His music incorporates all of that -- classic songwriting, great playing, simple, hook-heavy arrangements and thoughtful production -- but updates the sound for today. It's straightforward, heartfelt rock & roll, ten songs of love and loss, ocean-scented breezes and the hum of the open road beneath your wheels.

    Tonight's The Night

    By 1975 Young had written some of the most enduring anthems in rock history. But from the slow, tension-building piano opening of Tonight's the Night, he downshifts into darkness and Crazy Horse's folk-country melodies take on a guttural hum that would eventually speak to generations of punk and grunge musicians.


    Inspired by the overdose deaths of two of Young's friends, roadie Bruce Berry and guitarist Danny Whitten, the title track (and its closing reprise) is a hypnotic cry of why? Even the relative party songs, Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown and Roll Another Number, fit the album's bus-to-nowhere resignation. -Steve Knopper

    Bobby Rush - Upstairs At United, Vol 11

    On February 4th, 2014, 73 year old Grammy nominated blues and R&B legend Bobby Rush added a generous helping of all analog, direct to tape, soul to Upstairs at United series. The set opens with a blistering take on the Beatles ''Come Together'' where most of the vocal is ''sung'' by the harmonica, followed by a sultry take on Otis Redding's ''Hard To Handle.'' Side two starts with a newly penned gem ''Why Do They Act Like That'' and finishes with Floyd-ish take on a Bobby Rush classic, ''2 Eyes Full of Tears.'' As traditional to the series, these recordings were done live to tape above the mechanical hum of the record presses at United Record Pressing then cut as a 45 RPM 12'' EP for the optimum listening experience.

    Salad Boys came together at the end of 2012 with members from other illustrious Christchurch groups T54, Bang! Bang! Eche! and the Dance Asthmatics. Recorded, the Salad Boys are deceivingly charming, presenting a careful but curious balance of well-informed pop melodies, hypnotizing rhythms and heady instrumentation. The group's self-titled mini-album released in 2013 caused something of a mini-sensation, receiving praise from the likes of Stolen Girlfriends Club, Mess and Noise,hhhhappy.com and many more. In real life, the Salad Boys perform a wondrous assault: a charged up blitz of clanging guitars, intoxicating drones, head-down acid repetition and an abundance of dazzling pop hooks. This notoriety has scored the group a wealth of engagements up and down New Zealand including slots at the Camp a Low Hum and Chronophonium festivals, gigs with Sebadoh, The Bats, & Parquet Courts as well as a highly honorable spot performing as backing band for David Kilgour of legendary NZ group The Clean.

    Portrait Of Sheila

    During the Blue Note 75th anniversary celebration the label released 100 essential Blue Note LPs and asked New York Times readers what titles they'd like to see make the list. This album is one of five new reissues that were hand-selected by Blue Note President, Don Was, based on New York Times reader recommendations.


    Sheila Jordan's debut recording was one of the very few vocal records made for Blue Note during Alfred Lion's reign. Accompanied by the subtle guitarist Barry Galbraith, bassist Steve Swallow, and drummer Denzil Best, Jordan sounds quite distinctive, cool-toned, and adventurous during her classic date. Her interpretations of Oscar Brown, Jr.'s Hum Drum Blues and 11 standards (including Falling in Love With Love, Dat Dere, Baltimore Oriole, and I'm a Fool to Want You) are both swinging and haunting. Possibly because of her originality, Sheila Jordan would not record again for over a dozen years, making this highly recommended set quite historic.

    Total Dust

    Dusted is Brian Borcherdt (Holy Fuck, LIDS) and Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula). Wanting to explore a different sound, but unsure of where or how to find it, Borcherdt spent a December weekend in Nova Scotia. Alone and unable to sleep in a cold, dank cabin, he drew musical inspiration from his sparse surroundings. Fueled by a psychedelic hum underneath a veil of low drone-y distortion, Total Dust is Borcherdt's revelation.


    Most bands don't record through a small, blown-out practice amp. You may find however that it works, as the guitar fights its way through, only the most important notes survive. Their songs don't exist to be overproduced. They're recorded lean and they stay that way. In fact, it's almost impossible to manipulate anything when your studio is either a small converted garage or a rural cabin stocked with a scattered drum kit, a bass synth, and a tambourine. That's why every track was laid completely bare, stripped of all unnecessary instrumentation so that what remains is sometimes melodic, sometimes haunting, and always integral.


    Before even one song had been released, the band signed with Polyvinyl and played a show with labelmates Deerhoof and of Montreal. Their performance challenged the limitations of a two-piece: vocals and guitar expelled over a raucous backbone of live drums, 808 samples, and bass synth.

    Broken Ground, the opening track from the forthcoming album Black Curtain, features spikes of reverb-drenched guitar that sprawl across a humming electronic horizon, over which delicately draped vocal melodies twist, collide and dissolve.

    "Strip most music of its fashionable, genre-specific accoutrements and there's precious little left. Except country, perhaps. It's with this in mind that Los Angelenos Spain go about their lovelorn business. There are no frills, no zeitgeist nods here, just the simplicity of the strum, the slide and the hushed confessions of Josh Haden - son of jazz bassist Charlie and disciple of the songwriter's old skool.


    "Three albums in, 'I Believe' is a substantial offering awash with humble entreaties and doe-eyed, lounge affectations. Sure, the moniker may flirt outrageously with Monsieur Schmaltz, but there really are some sweet, sweet sounds lurking beneath the initially perceived pretence. The slow-mo beauty of 'Mary' showcases Haden's almost electronic, pitch-perfect coo (and with all genre gimmicks gone, the voice has to be exact), while the self-explanatory, nu-prairie hum of 'You Were Meant For Me' betrays a romantic absolutism that Nick Cave would be proud of.

    Frames

    The debut Brian Haas & Matt Chamberlain album Frames features 11 instrumental compositions that spiral through the tempered scale. A through-composed work for piano and percussion, it was written entirely by Haas, the internationally renowned pianist and founder of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Now based in Santa Fe, Haas wrote Frames as a suite, equally influenced by stride piano masters Earl Hines, James P. Johnson and Fats Waller; the early minimalist works of Philip Glass and Steve Reich; and the lush aesthetic of modernists James Blake, Flying Lotus and Nigel Godrich. The music is pastoral, intensely melodic and tells the story of an imagined human life.


    "After several years of non-stop touring with my band Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey I felt completely drained," explains Haas. "I was pulled to move to the high desert and mountains of Sante Fe; the space/distance from the road, the unearthly view from my house and the strange hum of my new surroundings inspired this music. What started as an exercise in all 12 keys turned into Frames."


    Brian Haas has recorded 21 albums and toured the world for two decades with Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, a band he started while a student at The University of Tulsa. Grammy Award-winning drummer Matt Chamberlain is one of the most revered musicians of his time having toured and recorded with the likes of Brad Mehldau, Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians, Critters Buggin, Tori Amos, Bill Frisell and Frank Ocean among others.

    Geist


    Clear Vinyl


    "Musically, the band has clearly found inspiration from the likes of Joy
    Division, Disappears, and The Jesus and Mary Chain, with an emphasis
    on heavy waves of drone and lots of visceral fuzz to create a slate-gray
    soundscape that's as frightening as it is aggressive."
    - Consequence of Sound


    "Something tells me Stagnant Pools are going to end up much more
    than Bloomington big." - Chicago Reader
    "The band sounds ready to escape something here, as a bucking rhythm
    and Strokes-like melody peeks through a hovering coal-dust cloud of
    distorted guitar sustain and reverb" - Pitchfork


    Following the release of their debut full-length Temporary Room,
    Stagnant Pools embarked on several high profile tours supporting
    the likes of David Bazan, Maximo Park, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and
    more.


    All this time spent on the road gave the Indianapolis-based duo
    a fresh perspective on their strengths and weaknesses as a band,
    feedback that brothers Bryan and Douglass Enas took to heart
    while spending last year working on new material.


    As a result, Stagnant Pools' sophomore release Geist (which was
    recorded and mixed directly to tape with Hum singer/guitarist
    Matt Talbott) finds the pair refining and expanding on a shoegaze-meets-noise pop sound that has drawn comparisons to Joy
    Division, Sonic Youth, and The Strokes.

    Zenith

    Like Bert & Ernie and Felix & Oscar, the bond of friendship can be peculiar. It is indisputable, though, that there exists a palpable, visceral energy that attracts strangers to form a perfect union. And, in those flawless entities we find a truer sense of being, a holy, deeper meaning that art only strives to approximate.


    Eastern Midwestern shoots for the moon, and only most-artfully turns back on itself. Whether it's the genteel storytelling of the Middle West, or the affected attitude of the jagged Eastern seaboard, this unique foursome of de-facto New Yorkers aims to please even the most discerning ear.


    They dare you not to hum back a melody, to not swing your arms in grand air guitar gestures, or flail faux-fills down dribbling air-toms. You'll have no control as your inner-bassist contorts the corners of your mouth into Bass Face, your under bite leading your head in an approving Rock Nod.


    Enjoy your ride to Zenith and back! It is the capital of your favorite fictional state: Winnemac, so equally eastern and so equally midwestern.
