    La La Land

    It's not easy to label the kind of music Plants and Animals make, but it's easy for it to feel instantly familiar. Maybe that's because they record to tape, and their records sound like they could have been made in 1972. But for all their analog warmth, it's also impossible to deny how raw and recent the songs sound. Their latest offering La La Land is louder and tougher than their debut Parc Avenue, but it also showcases the band at their smoothest and most cohesive.

    La Dusseldorf

    Upon the breakup of legendary Krautrock duo Neu!, drummer Klaus Dinger formed La DÜsseldorf with his brother Thomas and keyboard player Hans Lampe. This, their self-titled debut, was recorded in 1975 and is a staggering mix of Dinger's trademark motorik rhythms, glammy synths, pulsing organs and urgent guitar work that altogether creates a sound that, at times, predates both punk and post-punk, no small feat. Featuring their European hit single Silver Cloud, La DÜsseldorf's debut record is classic Krautrock on par with the best offerings of Neu!, Kraftwerk and Can.

    La Lechuza

    Includes CD + Limited Edition Poster


    Co-founded ten years ago by percussionist Bruce Cawdron (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and cellist Rebecca Foon (Thee Silver Mt. Zion), Esmerine enters its second decade with the new album, La Lechuza and an expanded line-up which includes harp-player Sarah Page and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Barr.


    La Lechuza documents the evolution of Esmerine under the influence of this expanded membership, and is dedicated to beloved and internationally-renowned Montreal-based singer Lhasa de Sela, who died on New Year's Day 2010 at the age of 37. The album includes the posthumous track Fish On Land, an alternate version of the song that she recorded with Emserine and on which she sings.


    While primarily tracked in Patrick Watson's loft in Montreal, La Lechuza was mixed by Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, The Unicorns, Islands) with the exception of three tracks. La Lechuza also features guest appearances by Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire) and Colin Stetson.

    La Question

    LP reissue of the French Pop superstar's 1971 album, one of her finest and most distinctive efforts. Initially considered a departure from her more commercial hits from the '60s, La Question has become a virtual calling-card for Hardy and has proven to be extremely influential on the modern French Pop scene. Though sparse in it's execution, the album demands the listener's attention and offers more of it's secrets with each additional spin. La Question continues to be embraced by new generations of music fans. 12 tracks including 'Chanson D'O' and 'Le Martien'.

    Shangri La

    Barely a year after his debut, in November 2013 Jake Bugg returns with its bar-raising follow-up, Shangri La. The album shares a title with the Malibu studio where it was made, once the 70s haven of Bob Dylan and The Band, now the creative hib of legendary producer Rick Rubin, the recording Titan whose jawdropping c.v. spans from Def Jam and Johnny Cash to Adele and Kanye West.


    Rubin's assembled wrecking crew of Shangri La session regulars includes guitarist Matt Sweeney (Bonnie `Prince' Billy, Neil Diamond, Endless Boogie), bassist Jason Lader (The Mars Volta), and drummers Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello). Yet for all its stellar cast and production kudos, the real star of Shangri La is, unquestionably, Bugg himself.


    Asked to compare Shangri La with its predecessor, Bugg concludes: 'My first album felt like a list of songs, whereas this one feels like a whole entity with something to say. Or if my first album was the colour of grey reality, this one's the colour of the sun'. The colour of our planet's nearest star. Or maybe the sound of a new star intensifying their musical colours. Listening to his second album, you dare to wonder where a talent like Jake Bugg could find themselves in ten years' time. His prediction: 'Up front for England'.

    LA EP

    Earlier this year, Atlanta's Dog Bite found themselves with downtime in Los Angeles between a successful tour with labelmates Toro Y Moi and shows at SXSW in Austin. The four-piece that makes up the touring group started messing around with different sounds and came up with their rst full-band release, the LA EP. This document of the road-tested crew is a stunning sequel to Velvet Changes, the band's debut LP, which showcased the talents of singer-songwriter Phil Jones and bassist Woody
    Shortridge.


    The LA EP begins with "Warm, Wake Up," a song that
    captures the bliss of a sunny day in the palm tree-dotted landscape and the romantic intrigue of Hollywood's studio lots. Motoring back down that winding road, we hear "Hunting Seasons where mid-20th century boogie haunts the track's guitars as the reverberating beat oats us back up to the clouds.


    A feeling of melancholia drifts throughout the EP's songs. But the saddest part about this collection is its 13-minute length. It ies by like a short vacation or a cool breeze. But much more than sorrow for its passing, the LA EP inspires excitement for the next gust of wind.

    La Futura

    La Futura, the first new studio album from ZZ Top in nine years, is set for release on American Recordings. The album harkens back to the hallmark raw sound of the band's formative years and will, inevitably, be considered a return to form on multiple levels. Produced by Rick Rubin and Billy Gibbons, the album finds the legendary group infusing their newly recorded work with the electric blues/roots approach that typified ZZ Top's earliest work while, at the same time, reaching for new sonic horizons. At its fundament, this is the incarnation of the band whose influence resonates today with such artists as The Black Keys, Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age and many others.


    The fact that the new album's title is in Spanish is a nod to an early ZZ Top tradition manifested in the titles of some of the band's earliest albums including Tres Hombres, Fandango!, El Loco and DegÜello. Known for decades by the sobriquet "That Little Ol' Band From Texas," ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Keith Richards in 2004 and has maintained a very active international and domestic touring schedule over the intervening years. They signed to American Recordings a few years ago and have been working on what would become La Futura in spurts since then.

    La Peste

    Alabama 3's second album shows off their trademark uplifting quality, albeit in a "Screamadelica"-style fusion of euphoria and melancholy. Songs like SAD EYED LADY OF THE LOWLIFE and recent single TOO SICK TO PRAY have a gospel-like hugeness about them, while WADE INTO THE WATER and MANSION ON THE HILL twang with countrified swagger.


    The album runs the gamut of emotions in the face of adversity: from the incandescent beauty of the shimmering WALKING IN MY SLEEP and the closing SINKING " to the claustrophobic beats of COCAINE (KILLED MY COMMUNITY) and the energy rush of STRANGE, adding a sense of dope-fuelled urban paranoia.Of particular note are a twisted beat-heavy cover of the Eagles' HOTEL CALIFORNIA, throwing a totally new slant on the song as the last cocaine-addled stop on the country musician's road to oblivion, and THE THRILLS HAVE GONE, whose spoken word contribution from Birmingham 6 survivor Paddy Hill brings into focus exactly what the band mean when they talk about injustice.
    LA PESTE (THE PLAGUE) may well be HIV, computer viruses or simply a global decline in justice and morality, but Alabama 3 are imploring us to come together and get loaded anyway. After all, we all have to die sometime. -PHASE9.tv

    La Spagna


    Reissued On 180-Gram Vinyl For The First Time Since It Was Recorded


    Half-Speed Mastered From The Original Analog Tapes By Stan Ricker, Plated And Pressed At Pallas In Germany


    Double 33 1/3 Rpm Gatefold Lp Limited To 1,000 Copies


    On The The Absolute Sound List Of Must-hear Audiophile Recordings


    This double LP set has resided on The Absolute Sound's 'Super Disc' list since dinosaurs ruled. It has an incredible variety of music and instruments from a 200-year period. There are no voices. The sound is very clean, transparent, complex and extended in the highs. The harmonic richness and decay within the hall is outstanding. The soundstage is very deep, but it is not unusually wide.


    The disc is simply ravishing. It's a classic analogue recording from 1980, lovingly produced, engineered and edited by Robert von Bahr using a Revox A77 and two - presumably spaced - simple Sennheiser MKH105 omni condenser mikes (vintage early '60's design); it amply shows the merits of a simple signal path, combined with minimal intervention and post-processing.


    The recording immediately astonishes with its fluid, natural and utterly truthful sound, And the acoustic of the Chapel of the Imperial College, Madrid is just beautiful. The music, all 80 minutes of it, features variations on three archetypal Spanish themes (La Spagna, a Spagnoletta and Pavane), as interpreted by different composers such as Praetorius, Farnaby, Negri, Josquin Desprez, Ortiz and others. Aided by impeccable playing and 'realisation' of the basic themes, the end result is lively, fun and eclectic.


    This is the very first audiophile version of this disc.

    La Folia De La Spagna (Speakers Corner)

    First mentioned around 1500 in Portugal, no forms or melodies have come down to us for the Folia. Described by historians as a noisy dance which was performed by masked and disguised figures who leapt about as though they had lost their reason, a tranquil, sarabande-like form asserted itself in Europe in the early 17th century.



    GrÉgorio Paniagua, director of the Atrium Musicae de Madrid, demonstrates once again his virtuosity in his treatment of historical material. His arrangements are not confined to medieval and baroque instruments but also employ a whole arsenal of percussion, such as various small drums, triangle, tambourine, castanets and xylophone. As the title of the LP suggests, the ensemble adds spice to the airy variety of timbres with a small touch of madness here and there. Unbelievably, a jazz solo is heard which recalls the Pink Panther Theme, and the Orient is conjured up by two Indian tunes (ragas) in which the sitar chirps passionately to the powerful plop-plop-plop of tabla rhythms.



    With its high resolution sound which places a high demand on hi-fi equipment in order to get the best reproduction, this record is both cult and legend.




    Musicians:

    Recording: June 1980 by Jean-François Pontefract

    Production: Eva Coutaz




    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.

    La Vie Est Belle

    Yannick Ilunga AKA Petite Noir doesn't mince words when he outlines the message woven into his debut album La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful: STAY POSITIVE. Yannick is half-Congolese, half-Angolan and was raised in South Africa. His musical background ranges from metal to nu-disco. He's since developed into a confident, singer and songwriter with a wide palette reflecting all the cultural dimensions of his life. Earlier 2015's EP The King of Anxiety blended raw angular energy, bright African rhythms and subtle R&B into his alt guitar sound, and now La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful takes that sound to louder, more defiant places. It's what Ilunga calls Noirwave, which is more of a concept than a specific sound. Inspired by innovators like Mos Def and Kanye and legends like Fela Kuti and Tabu Ley, Noirwave encompasses a new African aesthetic, plain and simple.

    La Di Da Di

    Battles are the Networked Band, or perhaps the-band-as network. An island chain linked by a unique combination of artistry, experimentation, technology and singular focus. Aband that holds computerized loops in their brains, leaves sweat on their machines and whose sonic heartbeat is almost brutally human.


    Dave Konopka, Ian Williams and John Stanier have turned the tables on themselves this time, confronted their own ideas of what Battles is - and here on their third album, have willed an answer to that question into existence. As the name might imply, La Di Da Di is a mushrooming monolith of repetition.


    Here is an organic techno thrum of nearly infinite loops that refuse to remain consistent. The rhythmic genus of Battles is here as ever; full frontal, heightened and unforgiving - the gauntlet through which melody and harmony must pass, assailed at every turn. Battles continue to be one of the best live bands on the road.

    Sueno De La Maquina

    Latin GRAMMY nominees Kinky's new album 'Sueño de la Maquina' was produced and mixed by legendary Dust Brother, John King, who has produced Beck, Rolling Stones and Beastie Boys. The album was mastered by Howie Weinberg, whose credits include iconic albums like Red Hot Chili Peppers' Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Nirvana's Nevermind and U2's Pop.


    More than 10 years ago, Kinky submitted a demo to the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC), where they ended up winning the conference's prestigious LAMC Discovery Contest. At LAMC, Kinky first connected with British producer Chris Allison (The Beta Band, Coldplay) and recorded their self-titled debut album, which was received with rave reviews from both international and domestic press. The album featured massive hit songs such as "Mas" and "Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor".


    Kinky's music has been featured in numerous soundtracks, TV commercials (Motorola, Smirnoff Ice, Nissan, Honda), and video games like EA Sports
    'FIFA and Tiger Woods' PGA Tour. The band's popularity is palpable in each of its concerts. Their popular live shows have allowed the band to tour around the world, performing at Coachella, New Orleans' Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, Bumbershoot, Outside Lands and many more.

    La Isla Bonita


    Gray Colored Vinyl


    For years, Deerhoof was the only band that sounded like Deerhoof. Deerhoof's
    neck-snapping syncopations, classical melody, minimal gear and maximal music has
    slowly become part of the vocabulary: St. Vincent, Flaming Lips, Tune-Yards and Dirty
    Projectors are just a few of the bands to have absorbed some Deerhoof DNA.


    Deerhoof banged out recordings to send to producer and Godmode Records
    honcho Nick Sylvester. No one gave much thought to microphone placement and
    other technical matters, or playing the parts perfectly, or even staying in tune. It was
    unselfconscious, spontaneous and fun, all four musicians playing in the same tiny
    room at the same time. "We forgot," says Greg, "that the camera was there." The
    music was ineffably evocative and powerful.


    In May, Sylvester recorded the vocals, and that's where the album's pop side comes
    out: Satomi's singing is front and center, and if it sounds like she's commanding the
    band, it's because she was. Satomi was determined to make a record that was not
    just for hardcore Deerhoof fans but instead would speak to everybody.


    But there's a darkness to the songs. While Satomi's voice might ring like a sweet bell,
    John and Ed's guitars resound with uncanny, virtuosic abandon, and Greg drums
    with his ingenious wallop, the gnomic lyrics juxtapose images of false paradise with a
    sense of declining empires and decay, a foreboding portrait of an American Weimar.
    La Isla Bonita is the glorious sound of four musicians owning their own hard-won and
    richly deserved legacy. Even as western civilization goes down the tubes.

    La Cuna (Speakers Corner)

    Ray Barretto disliked his music being labelled 'Latin Jazz' - yet the album La Cuna is one of the most memorable of this genre, since it amalgamates the diverse moods of both Americas. In this album, the expertise of the legendary producer Creed Taylor is combined with an all-star ensemble and the supreme musicality of the skilful jazz percussionist Barretto to create a tightly-knit performance. The title-giving opening number sails along merrily with a salsa swing, but then the soaring flute melodies and the powerful piano improvisations cool down the Caribbean rhythms. How the players mingle driving patterns with delicate melodies to form beautiful song is demonstrated best in Doloroso and also in Mambotango, whereby the latter exudes controlled coolness in the somewhat electric mood.


    John Tropea leans seemingly intentionally towards Santana and his art of guitar-playing, and this is further enhanced by the late Joe Farrell's phenomenal performance.
    A further tribute is paid to one of the greatest musicians ever to combine various styles and trends with a speeded-up version of Stevie Wonder's Pastime Paradise.


    To conclude: if not Latin Jazz, then definitely Latin AND Jazz.

    Musicians:



    • Ray Barretto (conga, percussion)

    • Joe Farrell (tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, flute)

    • John Tropea (guitar)

    • Charlie Palmieri (piano,percussion)

    • Carlos Franzetti (piano)

    • Jeremy Wall (synthesizer)

    • Francisco Centeno (bass)

    • Steve Gadd, Mark Craney (drums)

    • Willy Torres (vocal)

    • Tito Puentes (timbales)



    Recording: August 1979 at Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA

    Production: Creed Taylor

    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.
