    Cold Fact

    First Official Reissue!


    Mastered from the Original Tapes


    Co-produced by Motown Guitar God Dennis Coffey & Mike Theodore


    Featuring Members of the Legendary Motown Players The Funk Bros.


    Limited Edition Vinyl LP on 180 Gram Wax


    Its one of the lost classics of the 60s, a psychedelic masterpiece drenched in colour and inspired by life, love, poverty, rebellion. The album is Cold Fact, and whats more intriguing is that its maker a shadowy figure known as Rodriguez was, for many years, lost too. A decade ago, he was rediscovered working as a menial day laborer in Detroit, Michigan. He was unaware that his defining album had become not only a cult classic, but for the people of South Africa, a beacon of revolution.


    Rodriguez recorded Cold Fact his debut album in 1969, and released it in March 1970. Its crushingly good stuff, filled with tales of bad drugs, lost love, and itchy-footed songs about life in late 60s inner-city America. Gun sales are soaring/Housewives find life boring/Divorce the only answer/Smoking causes cancer, says the Dylan-esque
    Establishment Blues.


    But the album sank without trace, thanks, in part, to some of Rodriguezs more idiosyncratic behavior, like performing at an industry showcase with his back to the audience throughout. When the follow-up, 1972s Coming From Reality, also sold poorly, Rodriguez called an end to his recording career. Hed never even played a proper gig. And he got on with life. Over the years, he turned his hand to local politics, gaining a degree in philosophy, factory work and eventually, hard labour.


    As his music career became a memory, Rodriguezs legend was growing on the other side of the world. In South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Cold Fact had become a major word of mouth success, particularly among young people in the South African armed forces, who identified with its counter-cultural bent. But Rodriguez was an enigma not even the label knew where to find him and his demise became the subject of debate and conjecture. Some rumours said hed died of a drug overdose or burned to death on stage. Others said he was in a mental institution, or in prison for murdering his girlfriend. Barring a couple of sold out Australian tours in 1979 and 1981, nothing had been heard of him for almost 30 years.


    But the tide began to turn in 1996, when journalist Craig Bartholemew set out to get to the bottom of the mystery. After many dead ends, he found Rodriguez alive, well, free and perfectly sane in Detroit, ending years of speculation. Rodriguez himself had no idea about his fame in South Africa (the album had gone multi-platinum, Rodriguez has received not so much as a Rand in royalties), and embarked on a triumphant South African tour followed, filling 5,000 capacity venues across the country. A documentary named Dead Men Dont Tour: Rodriguez in South Africa 1998 was screened on national TV.


    Rodriguez is spoken of in the same reverent tones as The Doors, Love and Jimi Hendrix.

    Searching For Sugar Man

    The story remains one of the music world's most unusual tales of the 1970s: an obscure debut LP by a Detroit singer-songwriter becomes a source of hope and inspiration to the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa. Now, the story of Rodriguez and his cult album Cold Fact is the basis for Searching For Sugar Man, a riveting new documentary by filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul. Light In The Attic Records in partnership with Sony Legacy are honored to announce the release of the original motion picture soundtrack, comprising tracks from Cold Fact and its 1971 follow-up Coming From Reality - both reissued in 2008 and 2009 by Light In The Attic. The soundtrack begins with the otherworldly "Sugar Man" and acts as a primer to this long-overlooked musician's fusion of gritty funk, political poetry and blissful psych-folk.


    Searching For Sugar Man, a Red Box Films & Passion Pictures Production in association with Canfield Pictures & The Documentary Company, distributed by Sony Pictures Classics in the U.S., was a big hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival where it won the world documentary audience award and a special jury award, and then went on to screen at SXSW, Tribeca, and the Sheffield Doc Fest. The film opens in New York, Los Angeles, and London (via Studio Canal) on July 27th and will play in other cities throughout the coming months. For a complete release schedule, visit the film's website: www.SearchingForSugarManMovie.com.


    Back in the late '60s, Rodriguez was discovered in a Detroit bar by renowned producers Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore. They recorded a 1970 album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. Instead, Cold Fact bombed, and despite the release of a second LP, entitled Coming From Reality and produced by Steve Rowland, Rodriguez drifted into obscurity, even being subject to some fantastic rumors of a dramatic onstage death.


    Cold Fact took on a life of its own when a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid-era South Africa. Banned by the government, the album became a country-wide phenomenon over the next two decades, and the soundtrack to a resistance movement of liberal African youth. Back in Detroit, working in construction and renovation (he also ran for mayor), Rodriguez was totally unaware that he was not just a folk hero but a household name thousands of miles away.


    Decades later, two South African fans, Stephen 'Sugar' Segerman and Craig Bartholomew-Strydom set out to find out what really happened to their hero, and their investigation led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the many myths they'd heard. Their story forms the basis of Searching For Sugar Man.


    Both sides of the story, Rodriguez's life in Detroit and the subsequent impact of his music in South Africa, proved fascinating to Stockholm-based documentary filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul. His short documentary films for Swedish Television's international cultural weekly show Kobra became the basis for such films as Men Who Stare At Goats (George Clooney) and The Terminal (Tom Hanks). The evolution of the financing, production, and filming of Searching For Sugar Man is as fascinating and complex as the life of Rodriguez himself.


    "I describe myself as 'musico-politico'," Rodriguez said recently. "I was born and bred in Detroit, four blocks from the city center. Back then, I was influenced by the urban sounds that were going on around me all the time. Music is art and art is a cultural force. As far as my work from Detroit comparing to the South African Apartheid, the similarities echo. The placards of the 1970s in the United States read things like: We Want Jobs and Stop the War - I was looking at the music from a working class perspective that was relevant, as it turns out, to the kids in South Africa."

    Mourn


    "More importantly, the Catalonian quartet play with an unshakable conviction and
    a lack of self-consciousness, recording straight-to-tape, letting the harmonies bleed
    together and drums play at maxed-out levels." - Pitchfork


    "Their first song for the label, "Silver Gold", is a sludgy track, drowning in slippery
    distortion and Pixies-esque fire." - Impose Magazine


    "Jazz Rodriguez Bueno, Carla Perez Vas, Antonio Postius and Leia Rodriguez pierce
    the surface with unified cries, screams and howls that seize attention in a flash."-
    DIY Magazine



    MOURN is a very young quartet formed from the friendship of Jazz Rodríguez Bueno and
    Carla PÉrez Vas- both born in 1996 in El Maresme, Catalonia, Spain. The duo armed themselves
    with inspiration from PJ Harvey, Patti Smith, Sebadoh and Sleater Kinney and began
    writing material, which they quickly released, raw and acoustic, on their YouTube channel.
    These recordings caught the attention of their homeland's Sones Records. Despite being
    teenagers, earlier this year they came out of the studio (along with drummer Antonio Postius
    and bassist Leia Rodríguez) with a brilliant treatise of indie rock that has stunned those who
    have had the opportunity to listen to it. Jazz (18), Carla (18), Leia (15) and Antonio (18) came
    together to present these tracks with authenticity and self-awareness beyond their age. With
    the confidence only residing in youth, the Mourn debut was recorded live in the studio in
    two days, proof of which is in their live-in-the-studio videos for singles "Otitis" and "YourBrain
    is Made of Candy." Both tracks perfectly capture the bands' affinity for the brevity of The
    Ramones with the lyrical and melodic sophistication of The Pixies.

    Dreaming Is Sinking /// Waking Is Rising

    Pressed On Opaque Pink Vinyl

    Southern California's Dayseeker has revealed key details about their new album and Spinefarm Records debut, Dreaming Is Sinking /// Waking Is Rising.

    Frontman Rory Rodriguez told AP:

    This song is not only the start of our album, but it's also written for our dear friend who was a victim of sexual assault. This is a huge issue that we wanted to write about, not only to bring to light the trauma a person goes through when this happens but to hopefully offer solace to those same people as well.

    Regarding the album, Rodriguez furthered:

    This album is our proudest work to date. From beginning to end, you will hear a full concept album following the journey of a man who has fallen into a deep coma and his long journey to escape the mental prison he finds himself in.

    The album operates off an intricate concept: A man avenges the unspeakable crimes committed against his wife only to be bludgeoned into a coma. Locked in a vegetative state, changes erupt throughout his world, spanning the dissolution of his marriage and the death of his estranged mother. While his hospital bed doubles as a front row seat to the chaos, questions arise

    Is any of this happening? Is it real? What does it mean?

    Some of the answers may or may not be encoded within the 12 tracks comprising Dayseeker's 2017 conceptual third full-length album, Dreaming Is Sinking /// Waking Is Rising. Maintaining an inimitable and infectious intensity, the music represents a marked evolution for the Orange County group.

    The Fate of the Furious (alternatively known as Fast & Furious 8 and Fast 8) is the eighth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise. The film stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson. The Fate of the Furious follows Dominic Toretto, who has settled down with his wife Letty (Rodriguez), until cyberterrorist Cipher coerces him into working for her and turns him against his team, forcing them to find Dom and take down Cipher.

    The film turned out to be a huge blockbuster and has grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide, making it the second highest-grossing film of 2017 and the eleventh highest-grossing film of all time.

    The score is written and produced by Brian Tyler. Tyler is easily one of the busiest composers around today. He won Composer of the Year at the 2013 Cue Awards and was nominated for a 2014 BAFTA Award. In 2010, Tyler was inducted into the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

    The first pressing of Fate Of The Furious is available on silver vinyl. This is a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies.

    The 2LP set package contains an exclusive poster, as well as a 4-page booklet with pictures and credits. The gatefold has a special spot varnish effect.

    Amid The Noise And Haste

    DC-natives SOJA are thrilled to announce the release of new album "Amid the Noise and Haste" via ATO Records. It is band's fifth full-length and was produced by multiple GRAMMY award winning Jamaican producer Supa Dups (Bruno Mars, Eminem, Rihanna, John Legend). Featured
    guests include Michael Franti, Damian Marley, J Boog and Collie Buddz.


    Jacob Hemphill (lead singer/guitarist) and Bobby Lee (bass) met in the first grade in Virginia. The two instantly became best friends, finding common
    ground through their love of hip hop, rock and reggae, which they performed together at middle school talent shows. Throughout high school, they met
    Ryan Berty (drums), Kenneth Brownell (percussion) and Patrick O'Shea (keyboards) and formed SOJA. Rafael Rodriguez (trumpet), Hellman Escorcia
    (saxophone) & Trevor Young (lead guitar) joined the band when things started to heat up.


    Over the course of the past few years, SOJA has sold more than 200,000 albums, headlined shows in more than 20 countries around the world,
    generated over 3 million Facebook fans, 60 million YouTube views, and attracted an almost Grateful Dead-like international fan base that grows each
    tour, with caravans of diehards following them from city to city.


    SOJA will be hitting the road this month with stops at Hangout Music Fest and California Roots Festival and will follow with a national run of amphitheater
    performances on the Soulshine tour with Michael Franti & Spearhead, Brett Dennen and Trevor Hall.

    Me

    "Can I make it clear?" Lorely Rodriguez asks within the opening moments of her debut album, Me. If clarity is what she seeks, Lorely has found it: her voice upfront, every word audible and strong. Her singular voice is the centerpiece of Me, her first full-formed vision of an album, following her previously shorter and more abstract releases as Empress Of. "Don't tell me who I am," she sings seconds later. Where her previous recordings worked in moody abstractions, layered soundscapes hinting at a voice deep under the surface, Me plays out like diary entries from one female voice musing on the personal, the political, and all the middle ground between. Bringing to life her unique blend of deeply personal yet incredibly celebratory dance music. However, "this record...it's about me," Lorely adds. "It's very much about my experiences. I learned how to let my voice out through this record. I learned how to record, how to produce. I learned how to write way better songs. I didn't realize this until i was almost done with it, but it was all about growth, and all about kind of being selfish and taking time for myself to really understand what events in my life have shaped me as a person."

    The Flying Club Cup

    Since its release in May of 2006, Beirut's internationally celebrated Gulag Orkestar album has soundscanned more than 45,000 copies, and the band has done a tsunami of interviews, photoshoots and features (including NY Times, Spin, Pitchfork, Urb, and Village Voice). This great fervor developed around an album conceived and constructed in a teenager's New Mexico bedroom.


    Six months of recording has led to The Flying Club Cup, an homage to France's culture, fashion, history, and music. Two years ago, Zach Condon immersed himself in Balkan folk, absorbed sounds, scales, styles, and the sonic joys of a skeletally structured, cacophonic ensembleoand moved west. Soaking up the likes of Francois Hardy, Charles Aznavour, and, most notably, Jacques Brel (a huge influence on both Scott Walker and Mark E. Smith), Condon has been articulating his conversational French.


    Most of the album was created at a nondescript Albuquerque office space, a.k.a. A Hawk and a Hacksaw's practice room; Heather Trost plays violin and viola on three songs. Engineering and production assistance came from Griffin Rodriguez (A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Man Man). He helped separate the many instrumentalists involved in recording, as opposed to Gulag's largely solo flight.The orkestar, which has solidified into a core group of eight members, has grand plans for replicating the album live, and is now an integral part of Beirut's identity. Additional recording was done with Owen Pallet (Final Fantasy) at the Masonic church studio owned by The Arcade Fire.


    Within the spectacle and intimacy of The Flying Club Cup, you can hear a love letter to the joie de vivre that defines our existence. Listen closer, and you also hear the emergence of a singular musical talent of Mr. Zachary F. Condon, at present living in Paris-- unbounded by cultural borders and by where his heart travels.


    A September-October '07 tour of nice theaters in large U.S. cities is in the planning stages, as are more dates in 2008.

    Hackamore Brick's One Kiss Leads to Another
    Defines the Term Cult Classic

    What makes a record a true cult classic? First, it
    must be released to a modicum of critical acclaim but zero commercial success. Second, in
    almost all cases the artists behind the release
    have to disappear immediately into obscurity.
    And third, over the course of decades, a dedicated core of record collectors, critics and
    true believers must spread the word about
    the album in question. Well, by those standards, New York band Hackamore Brick's 1970 LP One
    Kiss Leads to Another is the cult classic to end all cult classics (the
    only recent contenders might be Rodriguez's albums Cold Fact and
    Coming from Reality). Released on the bubblegum-centric Kama Sutra
    label to positive reactions from critics ranging from Richard Meltzer to
    Lenny Kaye, One Kiss sounded very different from anything else on the
    label or, for that matter, anything else on the 1970 music scene; often
    cited as the first post-Velvet Underground album, it does indeed provoke comparison's to VU's third, self-titled record and Loaded as well
    as other descendants like the Modern Lovers and Television. But the
    country-ish harmonies of vocalists Tommy Moonlight and Chick Newman lend the record a sound not unlike any number of current alternative "beard rock" bands plying their wares, and the discursive lyrics
    recall the Kinks.


    In short, One Kiss Leads to Another passes the fourth
    and hardest test of cult classic-dom, which is to remain relevant into
    the present, even though Moonlight and Newman didn't record another
    note together as Hackamore Brick until 2009. Real Gone Music is proud
    to present this remarkable record on both vinyl and CD, with a bonus
    track, the single side "Searchin'," appearing on both formats. Liner notes by Tony Rettman featuring quotes from Tommy Moonlight and pictures from the Hackamore

    Planetario

    From their humble start, file-sharing musical ideas and producing their first album in separate countries during the dawn of the internet, Novalima is now a live musical force revered worldwide for breaking boundaries and uniting seemingly irreconcilable genres, communities, and generations. They have created an inspiring movement and revolutionized the music scene in their native Peru by bridging a longstanding divide between the mainstream and the minority Afro-Peruvian community, who have struggled against discrimination and cultural dissolution for generations. Over the last two years, Novalima created their newest offering, Planetario to be released June 16th on Wonderwheel Recordings. The album's name signals Novalima's musical growth and international connections - much of the album was recorded on tour when they collaborated with top local and international musicians. There is a strong connection to Colombia created through a remarkable recording session in Bogota organized by members of La-33 including Sidestepper vocalist Eka Muñoz, Pernett and La Mamba Negra. The album also has offerings from global artists such as Marc de Clive Lowe (UK/NZ), Panko from Ojos de Brujo (Spain), and Kumar (Cuban rapper based in Barcelona). The album's debut single, "Como Yo" (to be released May 19th on digital single and 7" vinyl) honors the legendary Peruvian percussionist and longtime band member Mangue Vasquez who passed away in 2014. Not one for sentimentality, Mangue implored his friends to celebrate his life with song and dance when he passed rather than shed any tears. The life affirming lyrics are underscored by rolling percussion, twinkling synths, and a celebratory sing-song chant chorus: Gozen la vida como yo - Enjoy life, like I do. Novalima has garnered worldwide critical acclaim from mainstream (NPR, UK Guardian, Wall Street Journal, La Presse, Metro, Billboard) and underground media (Giant Step, Remezcla, Nat Geo) alike, delivered legendary performances around the world at festivals such as Roskilde, WOMAD, Pirineos Sur, NYC Central Park, Montreal Jazz Festival and Chicago's Millennium Park, earned a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album, and were featured in cult filmmaker Robert Rodriguez's hit Mexploitation movie Machete. For their upcoming year of international touring Novalima has designed a brand new live show that will debut in Lima at the Grand Teatro National on May 28th as part of the country's celebration of 100 years of Afro-Peruvian culture. Novalima''s international tour begins in North America this June.
