    Old Ramon

    Old Ramon, the sixth Red House Painters album, recorded in the
    fall of 1997 through the spring of 1998, was intended for release
    that summer. But the mega-major label merger catastrophe that
    left hundreds of bands homeless spared few. Red House Painters
    looked for a brief moment like survivors, but subsequent delays
    eventually turned into permanent layoff. Old Ramon sat in limbo
    and grew into legend as another great, lost album only the
    privileged few would ever properly hear. They've unintentionally
    put the wait back into the term "long-awaited."


    Singer Mark Kozelek kept busy with a series of other projects. He
    served as producer for Take Me Home: A Tribute to John Denver.
    As archivist for the 4AD Red House Painters Retrospective album,
    assembling rarities and live tracks. As solo artist with several
    tracks on the Shanti Project album, and two albums Rock 'n' Roll
    Singer and What's Next to the Moon, a collection of AC/DC songs
    reinterpreted. As live performer, touring the United States, United
    Kingdom, Spain, Sweden and his first ever shows in South Korea.
    As film scorer for the independent film Last Ball. And, finally, as
    actor in Cameron Crowe's critically acclaimed Almost Famous.


    But while playing a musician in a movie-Kozelek appears as the
    bassist of Stillwater in Almost Famous-was an exciting diversion,
    it also pointed out the absurdity and irony of the situation. He'd
    been writing and performing his own music since the 1980s, with
    Red House Painters since the early 1990s. He was a musician, not
    just someone who might play one on TV.


    With Old Ramon sitting on the shelf, it was like reading a book
    with a chapter missing. Kozelek had written most of the album
    throughout 1996 and 1997. There were "Between Days" and
    "Wop-a-din-din," written during the months he stayed in Oaxaca,
    Mexico about his time there and his cat waiting at home in San
    Francisco; "Cruiser" written on an airplane ride from Los Angeles
    to San Francisco about a friend he'd met during the John Cale
    tour; and "Golden," a song in tribute to John Denver, written and
    recorded in a single day during December of 1997, just a few
    months after Denver's tragic death. "Michigan" and "River" had
    been road-tested on the band's previous tour.


    The album, in fact, had come together with a good feeling, reuniting
    the band with their old friend and engineer Billy Anderson,
    who'd worked on their earlier records Down Colorful Hill and the
    two self-titled releases (Rollercoaster and Bridge by their covers).
    Sessions in San Francisco, Mendocino, California and Austin,
    Texas resulted in several hours' worth of music being recorded.
    The band had spread out and worked up various arrangements for
    a majority of the tunes. Sadly, a twenty-minute version of "Michigan"
    fell to the cutting room floor.


    But the ten songs packed onto Old Ramon (the title comes from a
    Spanish children's book that caught Kozelek's fancy) well
    represent the band that will take to the road for the first time in
    several years with extensive touring throughout the United States
    and Europe. Once freed from their major label commitments,
    reputable independent labels bid for the band's services. This,
    however, is the album exactly as it was intended-untouched-three
    years to the month of its completion. Good news:
    The wait is officially over.

    Bridge (On Sale)

    The second of the band's eponymous albums of 1993 and with a bridge on the cover to give it it's unofficial title, this set was shorter, collecting eight more tracks from the studio sessions the band embarked on upon signing to 4AD. Holding back signature classics like 'Evil', 'Uncle Joe' and 'Blindfold' for this record, it's arguably
    the most experimental and darkest of their 4AD releases, reflecting the winter month it was released in. It's also notable for containing the first "Kozeleked" cover versions, with 'I Am A Rock' and the 'Star Spangled Banner' both getting his treatment.

    to record, capturing every sound as it happened.
    Out of print since, it's now been reformatted
    to become a double 12" LP so to also
    include the four-track Shock Me EP of 1994.

    Beulah

    Beulah. It's a small, complicated word with a tangle of meanings.


    It's the title of John Paul White's new album, his first in nearly a decade, a remarkably and assuredly diverse collection spanning plaintive folk balladry, swampy southern rock, lonesome campfire songs, and dark acoustic pop. Gothic and ambitious, with a rustic, lived-in sound, it's a meditation on love curdling into its opposite, on recrimination defining relationships, on hope finally filtering through doubt.


    Beulah is also a White family nickname. "It's a term of endearment around our house," White explains, "like you would call someone 'Honey.' My dad used to call my little sister Beulah, and I call my daughter Beulah. It's something I've always been around."


    Beulah is also something much loftier. For the poet and painter William Blake, Beulah was a place deep in the collective spiritual unconscious. "I won't pretend to be the smartest guy in the world," says White, "but I dig a lot of what he's written. Beulah was a place you could go in your dreams. You could go there in meditation, to relax and heal and center B photo credit: Allister Ann 119 west 57th street, penthouse north, new york, ny 10019 t 212.741.1000 www.sacksco.com SACKS A CO. N D yourself. It wasn't a place you could stay, but you came back to the world in a better state."


    And perhaps the music on this album originated in that "pleasant lovely Shadow where no dispute can come." According to White, the songs came to him unbidden-and not entirely welcome. "When these songs started popping into my head, I had been home for a while and I was perfectly happy. I wasn't looking for songs. I didn't know whether any would pop back in my head again, and I was honestly okay with that. I'm a very happy father and husband, and I love where I live. I love working with artists for a label that I think is doing good work."


    Far from the grind and glamour of Nashville-where he worked for years as a working songwriter before stepping into the spotlight himself-White settled in his hometown of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, a wellspring of gritty Southern rock and soul since the 1960s. Together with Alabama Shakes keyboard player Ben Tanner and Shoals native Will Trapp, he founded and runs Single Lock Records, a local indie label that has released records by some of the Yellowhammer State's finest, including Dylan LeBlanc, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, and legendary songwriter and keyboard player Donnie Fritts. The label is based in a small ranch house a stone's throw from White's own home, which would come in handy when those songs started invading his head.


    "Honestly, I tried to avoid them, but then I realized the only way I was going to get rid of them was if I wrote them down. I got my phone out and I'd sing these little bits of melody, then put it away and move on. But eventually I got to a place where it was a roar in my head, and that pissed me off." Due to his experiences as a gun-for-hire in Nashville, White was reluctant to romanticize the creative process, to turn it into a spiritual pursuit. "Then one day I told my wife I think I'm going to go write a song. She was as surprised as I was. I went and wrote probably eight songs in three days. It was like turning on a faucet."


    Most artists would kill for such a downpour, but White was wary of the consequences. He knew that writing songs would lead to recording them, which would result in releasing them, and that means touring and leaving home for weeks at a time. "As soon as I write a song, I start thinking what other people might think of it. I've talked to friends about this: What is it about us that makes us do that? Why can't I just sit on my back porch and sing these songs out into the ether? I don't have an answer for it yet, but I think it's just part of who I am. I need that reaction. I need to feel like I'm moving someone in a good way or in a bad way. I need to feel like there's a connection."


    White threw himself into the project, no longer the reluctant songwriter but a craftsman determined to make the best album possible-to do these songs justice. He cut several songs at the renowned FAME Studios in his hometown, where Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, the Allmans, the Osmonds, Bobbie Gentry, Arthur Conley, and Clarence Carter recorded some of their most popular hits.


    One product of those sessions is "What's So," which introduces itself by way of a fire-andbrimstone riff, as heavy as a guilty conscience-the kind of riff you wouldn't be surprised to hear on a Sabbath album. But White's vocals are gritty and soulful, a product of the Shoals, almost preacherly as he sings about earthly and eternal damnation: "Sell your damn soul or get 119 west 57th street, penthouse north, new york, ny 10019 t 212.741.1000 www.sacksco.com SACKS A CO. N D right with the man, keep treading water as long as you can," he exhorts the listener. "But before you do, you must understand that you don't get above your raisin'." It's the heaviest moment on the record, perhaps the darkest in White's career.


    At the other end of the spectrum is "The Martyr," one of the catchiest tunes White has ever penned. The spryness of the melody imagines Elliott Smith wandering the banks of the Tennessee River, yet the song is shot through with a pervasive melancholy as White wrestles with his own demons. "Keep falling on your sword, sink down a little more," he sings over a dexterous acoustic guitar theme. This is not, however, a song about some unnamed person, but rather a pained self-diagnosis: "These are the wounds that I will not let heal, the ones that I deserve and seem so real." White knows he's playing the martyr, but he leaves the song hauntingly open-ended, as though he isn't sure what to do with this epiphany beyond putting it in a song.


    The rest of Beulah was recorded in the Single Lock offices/studio near White's home. "I can be more relaxed about the process. We can all just sit there and talk about records or baseball without feeling like someone's standing over our shoulders. That's a big deal to me, not to feel pressured. And I'm only about twenty yards away from home, so I can walk over and throw a baseball with my kids or make dinner with my wife."


    Some of the quieter-but no less intense-songs on Beulah were created in that environment, including the ominously erotic opener "Black Leaf" and the Southern gothic love song "Make You Cry." As he worked, a distinctive and intriguing aesthetic began to grow clearer and clearer, one based in austere arrangements and plaintive moods. These are songs with empty spaces in them, dark corners that could hold ghosts or worse. "There were certain moments when Ben and I would finish up a song, listen back to it, and think how in the world did we get here. But that's just what the songs ask for. These are the sounds in my head. This is the sound of me thinking and living and breathing and doing."


    Once White had everything assembled and sequenced, it was time to give the album a title, to wrap everything up for the listener. Beulah stuck-not only because of family history or Blake, but because White realized that making music was his own trip to Beulah. "If you had to sum up what music is for most people in this world, it's that. It's that escape. It's that refuge. You go there and you come back and you use that to help you with your life. You always have that as a place to go."

    The White Birch (Awaiting Repress)

    Seminal Slowcore Progenitor's Sub Pop Albums Reissued Individually as Deluxe 2LP + CD Editions!


    Restored from the Original Masters Complete w/ Additional Singles, Demos, Live Recordings and Peel Sessions!


    From 1990-1994, New York City's Codeine were making somnambulant waves on a musical landscape reeling from Sub Pop's better known exports. 1991's Frigid Stars, 1992's Barely Real, and 1994's The White Birch received much critical praise upon release, but Codeine dissolved before any of that hype would carry Low, Bedhead, and the Red House Painters to international acclaim.


    All three albums will be subjected to Numero's notoriously elaborate packaging and detailed liner notes, including essays by Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman, Love Child's Alan Licht, and the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd. The albums have been faithfully restored from the original masters, and are accompanied by a plethora of singles, demos, live recordings, and Peel sessions. Each album will be packaged as a double album with a CD of the same material.


    Codeine's third overall release and second full-length, The White Birch, was originally issued in 1994 and would be the band's final offering. Regarded as their best album, the 9-song set is bookended by the murky opener Sea and the contemplative closer Smoking Room with highlights Vacancy and Washed Up in between. 2LP + CD edition features 8 bonus tracks including demos, live takes and Peel sessions.


    In support of this great undertaking, Codeine's original line-up of Stephen Immerwahr, John Engle, and Chris Brokaw will be reuniting for a handful of dates in the US and Europe, including All Tomorrow's Parties in both London and Japan, and Primavera in Spain.

    We Have The Facts And We're Voting Yes


    Newly Reissued 180 Gram Version


    Like the also-great Idaho or Wheat, to file Death Cab for Cutie under the mellow-pop umbrella that shelters tranquil chamber outfits such as Red House Painters, Low, or (post-dance-pop) Talk Talk would do them a gross, miscalculated service. While they're no strangers to the tickling knelling of guitars searching out the extra space found in laggard tempos, that predilection only encompasses a fourth of Death Cab for Cutie's output (like on Title Track and Little Fury Bugs). Heck, they're not even remotely quiet for half of We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes -- the best and brightest LP of their three fine albums to date. Ben Gibbard has turned into a sublime composer, using melodies sparingly but with splendid tunefulness, as all four players marinate his writing with delicately plucked, picked, and pulled arpeggios, ringing chords, and non-obvious atmosphere building. Verily, the slow, broody stuff is but a change of pace; it's when the volume doubles (if only occasionally crashes), when the band shows potency, that We Have the Facts starts flying, soaring with exigency beyond even the threatening storm clouds from the last flight plan, 1998's Something About Airplanes. Lowell, MA and Company Calls are perfect examples: drummer Nathan Good actually gets to punish his snare and toms, the other three dig in with him, and the words indie pop suddenly sounds fresh and alive, with real aggressive, post-dream pop guitar popscapes. Loud and soft, or most of all both, and plenty of points in between, DCFC write and record finished songs that emote, that do more than merely fill a slot in a form in a preconceived genre. In short, they're superb. And getting greater.

    Live In Copenhagen

    Originally given away as a free, limited-edition, unmastered CD, with pre-orders‰ on the Caldo Verde website in 2012, this is amongst the most popular/in-demand of the live Kozelek oeuvre.


    Balancing between Red House Painters songs, covers, and 'Admiral Fell Promises'-era Sun Kil Moon 'Live In Copenhagen' hits the sweet spot, for all eras of Kozelek. House in a heavyweight, single-pocket/double-wide jacket, this one-time only pressing (with first-time mastering and lacquer cutting by the legendary John Golden) is the best the audio has been presented, to date.

    I.

    Formed in 2008, the group has been host to a number of different musical collaborators, working through a variety of sounds since its inception. In the spring of 2012, inspired by the Trinity Session, Cocteau Twins, Red House Painters, Mazzy Star & the sound of early '60s records like I Love You How You Love Me by the Paris Sisters, they recorded their first proper EP, I., live over the course of a single night in the stairway of a four-story building.

    Drifting Your Majesty (Awaiting Repress)

    The driving force behind Desertshore is the partnership between guitarist Phil Carney and keyboard player Chris Connolly. The former has played with both of sadcore king Mark Kozelek's bands, Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon, and the latter has a classical background, though he also loves the gauzy, ethereal indie rock sounds that came out of England's 4AD label (which was also home to Red House Painters). With third man Dave Muench on drums and a couple of guests (including Kozelek), Carney and Connolly made Desertshore's all-instrumental debut album a place where all their varied influences intertwine.


    The album's title offers a hint about the mood of the music -- Drifting Your Majesty maintains a haunting, dreamlike quality throughout its 14 tracks. Though these pieces are not without dynamics, they remain on the impressionistic, ethereal side, whether it's an intimate duet between Connolly and Carney that's taking place, or something more fully fleshed out with rhythm section and second guitar. As the tunes gently rise and fall, they roll rather seamlessly through a wide array of styles, blending psychedelia, post-rock, and international touches. Sometimes these tracks evoke the mellower, more contemplative circa end-of-1969 Neil Young or Grateful Dead improvisatory expeditions (Desertshore are, after all, a Bay Area band). At other points, there are echoes of a more contemporary post-rock sound à la Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky, and occasionally, Connolly and Carney dip into some Middle Eastern-tinged modalities, suggesting some quality time spent listening to early world music-inclined '60s guitarists like Peter Walker and Sandy Bull. Drifting Your Majesty manifests a moody, meditative feeling, but is never monochromatic.

    Barely Real

    Seminal Slowcore Progenitor's Sub Pop Albums Reissued Individually as Deluxe 2LP + CD Editions!


    Restored from the Original Masters & Complete w/ Additional Singles, Demos, Live Recordings and Peel Sessions!


    From 1990-1994, New York City's Codeine were making somnambulant waves on a musical landscape reeling from Sub Pop's better known exports. 1991's Frigid Stars, 1992's Barely Real, and 1994's The White Birch received much critical praise upon release, but Codeine dissolved before any of that hype would carry Low, Bedhead, and the Red House Painters to international acclaim.


    All three albums will be subjected to Numero's notoriously elaborate packaging and detailed liner notes, including essays by Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman, Love Child's Alan Licht, and the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd. The albums have been faithfully restored from the original masters, and are accompanied by a plethora of singles, demos, live recordings, and Peel sessions. Each album will be packaged as a double album with a CD of the same material.


    Codeine's second release, the 6-song EP Barely Real, was originally issued in 1992. Several of the songs from the Barely Real recording sessions were rejected and would be re-recorded for the band's final album The White Birch. Features the David Grubbs solo cut W and a cover of MX-80 Sound's Promise of Love. 2LP + CD edition features 7 bonus tracks including demos and alternate takes.


    In support of this great undertaking, Codeine's original line-up of Stephen Immerwahr, John Engle, and Chris Brokaw will be reuniting for a handful of dates in the US and Europe, including All Tomorrow's Parties in both London and Japan, and Primavera in Spain.

    Massachusetts 2010 (On Sale)

    Trained as a painter but best known for his role as a founding member (and the extraordinarily agile bassist) of chamber pop heavy-hitters Ra Ra Riot, Mathieu Santos has surprised himself by making a solo record. The songs that compose Massachusetts 2010, to be released this summer on Barsuk, were first written, you guessed it, last year in the great state of Massachusetts. Following their recording, however, those demos were set aside and left to sit while Santos spent time on the road with his main band. In the winter and spring of 2011, he returned to the 10 songs with fresh perspective and a critical distance from the context in which they were originally written.


    Applying his visual artists focus on only the most essential compositional elements, Santos borrowed a friends guest house in rural New Jersey and finalized the album in just a few days there. He worked quickly, maintaining the impulsive freedom of the original writing process but stripping down the palette and creating an arresting sonic environment that sparkles with tantalizing abstract imagery and finely-observed details, set against a backdrop of wide open spaces.


    Santos sings with an echoing, bounding tenderness on opener I Can Hear The Trains Coming, and its balance of youthful exuberance and skillful elegance sets the tone for the rest of the album. Spritely vocals bounce off stark arrangements, the instrumentation referencing the natural musicality of ordinary things from seagull shrieks to dial-up modem rings. As the album title suggests, these songs represent a particular time and place for Santos, and although the lyrics are largely impressionistic, phrases emerge regularly to make the album resonate with echoes of warmth, loneliness, love, regret, loss, and joy. Even if you werent there then, Massachusetts 2010 is a place and time that anyone with ears and a heart can hear and feel.

    Country Sleep

    Welcome to the sound of Winston Yellen and Night Beds, who in one stunning ten-track debut album Country Sleep, have shown that there is plenty of life left in the world of American music if you have the voice, the songs and the gift to touch hearts and souls. Think of a space between Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon), Gram Parsons and the dreamier side of My Morning Jacket; a heavenly place of pure country soul, touched by an endearing innocence and honesty that can only come from someone still in their early twenties.
