    This Is Happening


    Double Vinyl In Matte Gatefold Sleeve With Printed Inner
    Sleeves.


    Mastered By Bob Weston At Chicago Mastering Service
    And Pressed By RTI


    Back in print, the classic third LCD Soundsystem LP.


    Of the many arresting moments that fill LCD
    Soundsystem's This Is Happening, perhaps the most
    unexpected comes less than halfway through album
    opener "Dance Yrself Clean." The seemingly unassuming,
    low-key rumble of a song morphs from its mumbled
    beginnings into an outsized flash of synth ballast and
    wailing vocals. The sudden shift is like the flicking on
    of a light, the perfect example of frontman-songwriter-mastermind James Murphy's effortless balance of restraint
    and release, organic rock and electro pop, and muted cool
    and vibrant emotion. This study in contrasts pervades LCD
    Soundsystem's third, and possibly final, release--an album
    where Murphy refracts images of heartbreak and longing
    through the scattered light of a disco ball.


    The cautious observations and honest reveals that follow
    are literally and figuratively quieter moments than that
    initial blare. On "All I Want," against a wall of whirling
    guitar, Murphy recognizes a relationship that can't be
    saved, and instead asks for "your pity" and "your bitter
    tears." "Home" shuffles over pulsing keys and bubbling
    percussion as Murphy tries to bridge physical and
    emotional distance, singing, "You might forget, forget the
    sound of a voice / Still, you shouldn't forget the things
    we laughed about." Conversely, the sparsely decorated,
    sauntering "Somebody's Calling Me" is almost hopeful
    in comparison: "Somebody's calling me" Murphy half
    whispers, "to be my girl."


    With This Is Happening, Murphy has created a work of
    both nuanced introspection and distanced observation.
    DFA is proud to offer the vinyl version of this much lauded
    release, which also includes contributions from drummer

    Dunes

    Over the past three years,the Santa Barbarian comrades that make up Gardens &Villa -Chris Lynch,Adam
    Rasmussen, Levi Hayden, Shane McKillop, and Dusty Ineman - went from playing local bills to being
    veterans of the road.After releasing their self-titled debut on Secretly Canadian in 2011, they pushed their
    van's odometer into the six-digit range, zigzagging North America and Europe with over 350 shows in just 2
    years. Gardens & Villa emerged a wiser, crystallized version of themselves.


    Those experiences planted the seeds for the band's new batch of cohesive, personal, and beautifully layered
    pop songs - homegrown in the confines of the band's beach side practice space. When it came time to
    record, they searched out acclaimed producer Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, DFA Records, LCD
    Soundsystem, Hercules & Love Affair) and these five surf-town natives found themselves traveling to the
    unlikely locale of Benton Harbor, MI (pop. 10,040) in January. There they landed at the Key Club, located
    deep in the recesses of a converted locksmith's building where they would record what would become their
    second full-length, Dunes.


    Gardens &Villa burrowed into the Key Club's retro-themed studio and living space, only leaving the facility
    five times over the next month. The disconnect between Santa Barbara's familiar sunny beaches and
    Michigan's snow-covered lake shore led to the group's creative unraveling in the studio. The band lost track
    of the hours, days, and weeks as blinking analog machines captured the intense journey. In the process,
    Dunes was poured through Sly Stone's original custom-built Flickinger recording console.


    With just a week left before deadline, Gardens & Villa sought a brief refuge from the studio where their
    progress had stalled. They went on a trip,traversing winding roads past frozen tundra and barren trees and
    into the wilderness of the nearby state park's tall dunes. The group climbed to the top and collapsed into a
    combination of sand and snow.Simultaneously reminded of home as well as their distance from it,their jaws
    dropped as they turned to see Lake Michigan's majestic and surreal expanse stretching toward the horizon.


    Supported by Goldsworthy's guidance, the band went back to the studio and ultimately emerged with a
    record beaming with dystopian energy, subconscious lyrics, and uncompromising sincerity. Lynch has
    seamlessly integrated his bansuri flutes and Rasmussen has fleshed out his looming synths alongside shades
    of '80s cult films soundscapes that lurk just underneath the songs in an unnoticeable-yet-omnipresent
    fashion.Like the awe-inspiring clarity of sitting atop Michigan's dunes,the band's forthcoming record shares
    a clear and evocative vision of where Gardens & Villa's members have traveled, what they've learned, and
    what lies ahead.

    Flux Outside

    Comprised of frontman Ryan Schaefer, drummer Chris Rusk and guitarist Sam Stratton, Royal Bangs combine catchy hooks with heavy synths to create a sound that SPIN Magazine describes as a mix of LCD Soundsystem's pulsing eletro-punk and the new Wave-y shimmer of the Strokes.


    Hailing from Knoxville, TN, Royal Bangs received some local buzz from their self-recorded album We Breed Champions, catching the attention of Patrick Carney (The Black Keys) who then re-released the progressive album on his own record label. The band followed up that effort with Let It Bleep which was released in 2009 to critical acclaim.


    In September of 2010, Royal Bangs signed with Glassnote Records. Their newest release, Flux Outside was mixed by Dave Fridman (Flaming Lips/MGMT). Gatefold double LP with MP3 download card.

    While We're Young - Soundtrack

    While We're Young is Noah Baumbach's sparkling follow-up to his 2012 hit Frances Ha. No film has better captured the weird, upended logic of urban sophisticates: the older ones embrace their iPads and
    Netflix, the young ones crave vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes.


    The film follows Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a childless New York married couple in their mid-forties. As their other friends all start having children, the couple gravitates toward a young hipster couple named Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried). He's an aspiring documentary filmmaker, avocation Josh already has. Soon the older couple begins enjoying the energy they feel hanging out with the younger generation, but eventually Josh begins to suspect his new best friend might not be as straightforward
    and trustworthy as he thought.


    The soundtrack is filled with classics such as Paul McCartney's "1985," Lionel Richie's "All Night Long (All Night)," Survivor's "Eye of The Tiger," or David Bowie's "Golden Years" just to name a few. The score to the film comes courtesy of LCD Soundsystem's own James Murphy.

    Oracular Spectacular

    Despite being founded in Connecticut by Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden in 2002, MGMT from the start sounded more Brooklyn than Bedford Avenue. Their productions are hard to describe, but if you mix psychedelic with proto-electro punk, shake it up with art noise and add some indie-pop, you just might have got the picture.


    Oracular Spectacular is the first major label studio album by MGMT and ultimately enjoyed both critical approval and commercial success, with the album selling over 500,000 copies in the U.S. and going platinum in Australia, the U.K., and Ireland. Oracular Spectacular features MGMT's signature song Kids, the funky track Electric Feel (famously covered by Weezer) and the smashing opening track Time to Pretend. The tunes sound classic and new all at once, paying homage to Bowie, the Kinks, and the Stones, while updating traditional progressions with flashes of Royal Trux, Ween, and LCD Soundsystem.


    Oracular Spectacular was named the best album of 2008 by NME and In 2009, Rolling Stone named it the 18th-best album of the decade.

    What Is The Meaning Of What (Awaiting Repress)

    What Is The Meaning Of What is the third album from New York City psych-dance-rock stalwarts, Turing Machine, their first since the critically acclaimed Zwei was released on Frenchkiss Records way back in 2004. The extended hiatus was largely due to its members other projects, most notably drummer Jerry Fuchs' relentless rotation in virtually every live band within stone's throw of the DFA orbit, including but not limited to LCD Soundsystem, Maserati, Holy Ghost!, The Juan Maclean, !!!, MSTRKRFT and Massive Attack.


    Shortly after Turing Machine began to work on what would become What Is The Meaning Of What, Fuchs tragically passed away. In his absence, guitarist Justin Chearno and bassist Scott DeSimon spent the better part of a year completing the album, with a little help from a plethora of friends, including Disappears vocalist Brian Case, and a host of musicians from the DFA roster, including Andrew Raposo and Caito Sanchez (both of Midnight Magic), Abe Seiferth, DJ McNany, and Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem).


    What Is The Meaning Of What boasts an increased focus on the dance floor while maintaining the adrenalin-fueled psychedelic post-punk fetishism that is the heart of Turing Machine. Propelled by Fuchs' unrelenting grooves and bubbling with layer upon layer of hypnotic riffs and driving synths, the album locks in and refuses to let go for its 40-minute duration.

    Summer Camp

    Summer Camp are Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth
    Sankey - the "head and heart" of the band respectively,
    as they describe themselves - and 'Summer Camp' is
    the follow up to their debut 'Welcome To Condale'.
    Elizabeth and Jeremy followed their debut with the
    'Always' EP in July 2012, five new songs that saw the
    duo equally adept at melodious dancefloor fillers as
    guitar pop. Written on piano, the tracks, including
    singles 'Life' and 'Always', took on a life of their own in
    the studio, resulting in a set described as "LCD Soundsystem versus Donna Summer" by NME, and "delirious
    disco-informed synthpop," by Stereogum, who proclaimed it "the best thing they've ever done".


    With "Summer Camp" they headed into the studio with
    legendary producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur).
    The result is an eleven-track marvel, cherry-picking the
    best bits of 'Welcome To Condale' and 'Always' , and
    weaving them into a cohesive whole that is very much
    the sound of Summer Camp in 2013, a confident, fullyrealised body of work that befits the cliche 'all killer, no
    filler'. "This album is a statement of intent: this is us,
    take it or leave it..." says Jeremy. "... Please take it."

    Cherish The Light Years

    Recorded with Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Cold Caves second album is a tour-de-force of pounding synths and soaring romantic melody. It manages to unite Power, Corruption and Lies-era New Order, late 70s Scott Walker, and the dark stadium pop of mid-period Depeche Mode, with the sensibilities of artists like LCD Soundsystem and The National. Drawing from all these influences, bandleader Wesley Eisold has crafted a tightly wrought, ambitious love letter to New York City. With his deep vocals fully to the fore on every track, Cherish The Light Years is a remarkable progression from 2008s Love Comes Close.


    Eisold is backed by diverse associates: Dominick Fernow (Prurient) on electronics, Jennifer Clavin (Mika Miko) on backing vocal and synthesizer, guitarists Tonie Joy (Moss Icon, Universal Order of Armageddon), Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Sean Martin (Hatebreed), bassists Daryl Palumbo (Glassjaw) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez) and drummer Guy Licata (Hercules and Love Affair).

    Await Barbarians

    We are pleased to announce the release of Alexis Taylor's second solo album and first for
    Domino, Await Barbarians!


    Taylor's (lead singer of Hot Chip) newest solo effort, Await Barbarians, is a series of songs
    "from the halfway line." Possessing the same immediacy as his music with Hot Chip and the
    adventurousness of his work with About Group, there is a special intimacy to these lyrics,
    a simplicity and candour in his expression of emotion that brings to mind the best singer-songwriter records from Laurel Canyon, though as always with Taylor the moments of
    honesty are matched with a sense of humour, playfulness and fun.


    Await Barbarians follows Taylor's EP from last year, Nayim From The Halfway Line. Alexis
    will be in the US for press and shows in NYC & LA to support his new solo album, while he
    takes part in Atomic Bomb! The Music Of William Onyeabor tribute shows w/ David Byrne,
    Money Mark and members of LCD Soundsystem

Mixed by former DFA house engineer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Classixx), Horizons is the work of two musicians who share a singular focus and absolute trust in each other's talents.

    While it might have seemed an odd fit for a power-riffing pop rock act to put out a record on a West Village disco label, the euphoric vibe of Free Energy perfectly complimented a roster of artistically different but equally accomplished bands, such as Black Dice, Yacht, The Rapture, and LCD Soundsystem. This sophomore release demonstrates the band doing what they love-condensing handclaps, harmonies, massive choruses, and lazer guided guitar leads into tracks like "Electric Fever", "Hey Tonight" and "Girls Want Rock" - while working
    a time-tested formula that can still sound fresh in the right hands. Much like their DFA debut, Love Sign flirts with hysteria-inducing pop songwriting and classic rock production, this time around working with John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.
    and The Hold Steady). Released on the band's new imprint "Free Energy Records".

    Orthodox

    Los Angeles-based indie rock band Beware of Darkness are set to release their debut album, Orthodox, on May 7 via Bright Antenna Records.


    Recorded at the Sound Factory and Valley Recorder in Hollywood, CA, executive produced and mixed by Dave Sardy (Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, Nine Inch Nails), and produced by Greg Gordon and frontman Kyle Nicolaides, Orthodox proves itself to be a sensuous experience - aimed somewhere between the gut and dirty dive bar - but death, and its implications for the living, is wrestled with on nearly each of the album's twelve blistering tracks. Anticipation for the album has been building since the band released their beloved Howl EP last year that earned instant acclaim and launched the single Howl, a song that has already hit Top 40 Rock Radio with over 26 stations playing it in regular rotation and whose video premiered on FUSE. Additionally, the band will be featured as Artist of The Month on all Clear Channel radio station homepages in March.


    The working title was Bleak but it eventually became Orthodox, reveals Nicolaides of his band's long-awaited album. I kept writing that word down in my journals. The first half means right and true, the second half means belief. I think the record is a lot about that too - about coming into awareness. Lyrically, Nicolaides cites literary influences, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, and David Foster Wallace. He delivers scathing lyrical content in a snarling howl tackling subject matters of depression, chaste women, pedophile priests, and post-modern paranoia. Incredibly potent and precise, these are lyrics are meant to evoke reactions.

    Museum of Love


    "Combining arty atmosphere and patient pacing with a
    sound that harkens back to the days when live disco was
    giving way to house beats, their sound is both blissful and
    brainy." - SPIN


    "Museum of Love moves at a stately pace here, offering a
    slow and steady chugger that wraps itself in gauzy vocal
    layers and takes its sweet time reaching its climactic
    peak."- Pitchfork


    Museum of Love is the musical project of Pat Mahoney
    (Founding member of LCD Soundsystem) and Dennis
    McNany (Jee Day).


    Longtime friends in New York, McNany and Mahoney
    found a similar sensibility and a shared vocabulary for
    interpreting surroundings, something that began with their
    remix of Battles' "My Machines feat. Gary Numan" and
    extended into their creation of a full length record together.
    Naming their duo in ode to Daniel Johnston's song of the
    same named, Mahoney divulges, "I had always loved the
    song, and had been thinking of what such an edifice would
    contain when we were trying to name the project." McNany
    continues, "Pat's a sculptor, I'm a painter, we make music
    and museums are sacred spaces and love is an elusive
    thing."


    McNany did most of the songwriting as well as production
    and instrumentation, while Mahoney is on vocals and
    of course, drums, but Museum of Love was an entirely
    collaborative process as the two edited and arranged
    tracks in the studio. Mahoney says the process of
    collaboration was energizing, while McNany simply
    explains, "making the record was pure pleasure. Waiting
    for it to come out has been the hardest thing."

    Soy Sauce

    Nacional Records is excited to announce the vinyl release of Mexican Institute of Sound's (M.I.S.) critically acclaimed,
    DJ-favorite albums 'Politico,' 'Pinata,' 'Mejico Maxico and 'Soy Sauce.'


    Their third album traverses Camilo Lara's wild musical imagination with a witty sense of humor for good effect - whether it's converting the traditional sounds of cumbia to a full on electronic dance track, paying tribute to J Dilla and Biggie with Mexican sonidos, or singing a love song as if Serge Gainsbourg had spent time in the Mayan jungle. Special guests include Ad-Rock (Beastie Boys), Mexican pop star Paty Cantu, Joselo Rangel (CafÉ Tacuba), and Brazilian singer Pat C.

    Pinata

    Nacional Records is excited to announce the vinyl release of Mexican Institute of Sound's (M.I.S.) critically acclaimed,
    DJ-favorite albums 'Politico,' 'Pinata,' 'Mejico Maxico and 'Soy Sauce.'


    Pinata proves to be the perfect title for the sophomore disc from Mexican Institute of Sound. It's got more colorful grooves and sweet surprises than you can shake, or swing, a stick at. One-man programming band Camilo Lara stuffs the disc with quirky samples and buoyant choruses that are decidedly Mexican but could reflect life from any corner of the globe. It's an electro-Technicolor take on world music. Killer Kumbia and Para No Vivir Desesperado come to life via chirpy cumbia grooves, as does much of the disc; and Lara effectively samples rock outfit CafÉ Tacuba during El Microfono. Lara's approach here is alternately serious and silly, combining nonsensical chatter with sly social statements. A Todos Ellos namechecks a long list of pop-culture icons, from Rocio Jurado, Sonny Bono, and R.L. Burnside, to Cantinflas, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and Oscar Wilde. The second half of the disc showcases more club-friendly grooves, and Pinata stand strong as an intriguing collection of pop revelry. - Joey Guerra
