    The Something Rain

    Tindersticks has been charting a glorious trajectory since returning to action in 2008 following a 5-year hiatus. With band leader Stuart A. Staples and co-founders David Boutler and Neil Fraser forming a core trio of original members, Tindersticks definitively returned to form with two critically-acclaimed albums in 2008 and 2010. The band's new record, The Something Rain, makes this a trifecta.


    The Something Rain brims and bristles with canny narrative thrust. Slinky, supple compositions are spiked with plenty of barbed edges and sparkling fizz. Right out of the gate, album opener Chocolate features David Boulter's sequel to the spoken-word classic My Sister from Tindersticks' eponymous 1995 release. Boulter narrates the story while the band works up a brilliant, brewing crescendo, abetted by the swirling horns of long-time collaborator Terry Edwards.


    The Something Rain is indeed a new Tindersticks classic, edgier, more exuberant and more expansive, a fine 9-song set of rolling, at times rollicking, and always inimitably Tinderstickian takes on smoky Northern Soul. First Tindersticks album to be entirely produced by the band, with Stuart A. Staples assuming full recording and mixing duties at his own Le Chien Chanceux studio. Features renowned horn player Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Gallon Drunk) and vocalist Gina Foster on several tracks. 180g LP includes art print poster and download code.

    Tindersticks (2nd Album)

    First 1000 numbered & limited on colored vinyl


    British band Tindersticks formed in 1991, renowned for their orchestral sound and their vocalist Stuart A. Staples' characteristic baritone. Essentially the group combined the dark romanticism of Leonard Cohen, Ian Curtis, and Scott Walker with the song craft of Lee Hazlewood and the aesthetics of indie rock. This is especially apparent on their first few records, such as Tindersticks (II) their second eponymous album.


    We release this modern day classic on a 180 gram vinyl double LP accompanied with a 4-page booklet. First 1000 copies numbered and pressed on baby blue vinyl!

    Tindersticks 1

    A thrilling debut for one of the most original British bands of the '90s. A romantic and elegant chamber pop masterpiece that mixes indie rock forms, the maverick pop song craft of a Lee Hazlewood and/or Van Dyke Parks, and the dark charm and hip romanticism of Ian Curtis, Scott Walker and Leonard Cohen.


    While in the U.K. it was named album of the year (1993) by Melody Maker, in the U.S. Rolling Stone wrote: The 1st Tindersticks album draws inspiration from the playful narrative style of producer Lee Hazlewood, the Cinemascope orchestrations of John Barry and the twilight-zone claustrophobia of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. 180 gram vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.

    Last Ex


    180 Gram Audiophile Pressing Includes Art Print
    Poster


    Last Ex is the new instrumental rock ensemble led by Simon Trottier and
    Olivier Fairfield, long active in Quebec's experimental/punk scene, though
    perhaps best known as core members of Timber Timbre, which spawned the
    Last Ex project.


    Last Ex is the new instrumental rock ensemble led by Simon Trottier and
    Olivier Fairfield, long active in Quebec's experimental/punk scene, though
    perhaps best known as core members of Timber Timbre, which spawned the
    Last Ex project.


    Constellation knew nothing of this back story when the label received the
    Last Ex demos in spring 2014; we just heard a compelling, compact, coherent,
    highly evocative instrumental album that kept worming its way into our ears.
    By the tenth time someone in the office said Let's play that Last Ex stuff
    again - and everyone enthusiastically agreed - it was time to contact the
    band. This music belonged in the Constellation catalogue: an instrumental
    rock album of superb compositional and melodic sensibility, balancing
    minimalism and restraint with atmosphere and tone, bound by a refreshingly
    original approach to production.


    Last Ex makes ample use of the electric guitar as both lead instrument and
    textural sound source, structuring most of the pieces around deliberate
    melodic and contrapuntal deployments of Spaghetti Western twang, while
    distressing, degrading and redeploying those sonics through Fairfield's analog
    tape-based manipulations. Trottier takes on most of the guitar duties, with
    Timbre Timber's Taylor Kirk contributing on a couple of tunes as well. Tight
    bursts of trap set rhythms played by Fairfield, and usually captured with just a
    couple of microphones, along with consistently excellent basslines laid down
    by both Simon and Olivier, propel the album and make this anything but an
    ambient listen. Strings appear on several pieces, courtesy Mika Posen (also of
    Timber Timbre), in a wide range of textures and treatments.


    With its combination of assured lyricism, cinematic guitars, dusky analog
    atmospherics and taut percussion, this is a vivid, concise and expressive
    instrumental album that sits snugly between fellow label acts Do Make Say
    Think and Exhaust on the one hand, Hrsta, Tindersticks and Evangelista on the
    other. Fans of early Trans Am, early/mid Tortoise, Calexico and (obviously)
    Timbre Timber should appreciate this as a very satisfying grower of an album
    as well. Thanks for listening.

    Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams

    Cameron Avery has arrived as a new breed of nocturnal crooner, a train-wreck romantic creating timeless, ambitious music for the modern age. Utilizing his soulful wit, shrewd arrangements, and a deep, husky baritone, Avery harnesses the dark power and humor of artists like Nick Cave, Scott Walker, and Tindersticks to expertly walk the fine line between vulnerable and venerable.


    Hailing from the late 2000s-era Perth, Australia, a healthy scene of hard-hitting garage rock bands, including a long stint as the drummer of Pond, Avery found his musical footing while playing with friends but sought the reward of his own outfit. Encouraged by his friend Kevin Parker of Tame Impala to record on his own, Avery started The Growl as his solo project in 2007, making an EP and an album of aggressive, distorted psychedelic rock and roll. When Parker asked him to join Tame Impala as its touring bassist in 2013, Avery jumped at the chance and rose with that band to the top of the psych-rock heap, but all the while remained focused on carving out his singular identity as an artist and following his own muse.


    On a break from touring, Avery decided to head to the US to work on his album. He would settle in Los Angeles at the behest of Jonathan Wilson, the Echo Park musician and producer who also encouraged Avery to shine a spotlight on his baritone singing voice, unlike the snarling, obscured vocals of The Growl. It was a lofty idea, but one to which Avery aspired, encouraged by the challenge.


    Melancholic machismo is written into the very DNA of Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams. From the classical, finger-picked guitar on the opener "A Time and Place" and the orchestral vamping of "Do You Know Me By Heart?" to the bombastic, self-assured swagger of "Dance with Me." He takes an emotive page from the Leonard Cohen songbook-of-longing on "Big Town Girl" just as naturally as he thumbs an aggressive note of Bad Seed strut and Cramps rut on "Watch Me Take It Away." And by the time he purrs that earnest refrain of "Baby, it's you" on the album's closer "C'est Toi," Avery has surely mastered that drunken tightrope dance. Now a resident of New York City, Avery looks to continue his search for the ultimate sensations from a fresh vantage point.

    Mysteries

    East London's Tigercats return with their new album and first release for Fortuna POP! Mysteries is vividly emotional and sonical-ly expansive, blending the very best of indiepop with complex song structures, lush production and beautiful arrangements. Tigercats combine the talents of songwriter, singer and guitarist Duncan Barrett with his brother Giles on bass, Laura Kovic on keyboards and vocals, and Jonny Evans on drums, as well as recent recruit Paul Rains from Allo Darlin' on guitar. And on Mysteries they're joined by living legend Terry Edwards (Gallon Drunk / Tindersticks), who contributes saxo-phone and trumpet on several tracks. Tigercats have toured across Europe, playing at Primavera and appearing on Spanish TV, while back in the UK they've appeared at both Indietracks and End of the Road festivals. Many of the songs on the album have been live sta-ples, starting off one way and mutating in to something totally different, giving the songs time to grow and develop before heading in to the studio. And once they did head in, bassist Giles Barrett's day job at London's legendary Soup Studios allowed the band nearly unlimited time to get deeper in to the recording process - so deep that it verged on insanity. Mysteries is the sound of a band of outstanding musicians fulfilling their potential and using their talents in the studio to realise their musical vision, retaining their infectious hooks, their heart and their sheer danceability, and coupling it with a bright new contempo-rary sound. Superbly crafted and full of personality, Tigercats' second album suggests that they won't remain a mystery much longer.

    Nervous


    "Carefully crafted, perfectly balanced, addictively
    melodic" - ROCK-A-ROLLA


    "In cold surroundings, moments of warmth arrive
    with life-affirming brightness, and that's what
    makes Siskiyou's music so memorable" - BLURT


    Siskiyou returns with Nervous, a majestic album of carefully constructed art rock
    built around songwriter and lead singer Colin Huebert's stacked acoustic guitars
    and intimate, whispery vocals. Siskiyou's sound has been previously dubbed a sort
    of 'Northern Gothic', conjuring cold winds and the life-saving warmth of temporary
    shelters and tiny hearth fires. With Nervous, the band continues to push beyond
    the crisp lo-fi intimacy of its early work, and has forged its most confident and
    finely-crafted recording to date, moving fully into auteur and chamber-pop
    territory with a song cycle that brings to mind the meticulousness of mood and
    sonics found in recent work by PJ Harvey, Nick Cave and Tindersticks. Inflected
    by an anxious, sussurant restraint, Huebert's voice is supported by the falsetto
    backing vocal counterpoint and economical instrumentation of bandmates Erik
    Arnesen, Peter Carruthers and Shaunn Watt. Fans of the understated and
    underrated 1990s group Swell may also hear a welcome evocation of that group's
    acoustic guitar-driven simplicity and austere deployment of adornments.


    Following Siskiyou's excellent sophomore release Keep Away The Dead in 2011,
    Huebert became afflicted with a serious inner ear condition that eluded
    conventional diagnosis. While honouring a previously-scheduled songwriting
    residency in Dawson City, Yukon in winter 2012, Huebert found himself grappling
    with severe anxiety and an unwelcome interiority, engendered by hyperacusis and
    a house that felt utterly haunted. Intense chronic ear-ringing and panic attacks
    continued throughout the year, for which conventional medicine was unable to find
    any cause or effective treatment; Huebert began focusing on meditation, retreated to
    silence for a period, and then began rehearsing his new songs with the band at
    extremely low volumes. The songs on Nervous are shot through with the entirety of
    this experience: the literal feeling of being trapped in one's head and the physica-lpsychological
    feedback loop of debilitating anxiety; the lyrical themes and tense,
    whispered singing amidst tightly-wrought compositions and arrangements.


    Huebert found solace in new working methods within the controlled environment
    of studio-based production and composition, developing new sonic palettes and
    pursuing new avenues of instrumental arrangement and recording fidelity.
    Working with producer/engineer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett/Final Fantasy, Dusted,
    Austra) on most of Nervous, Siskiyou has emerged with by far its most assured,
    ambitious and authoritative recordings, while preserving the economy of elements,
    deft structures, and assiduous melodic deliberation for which the band has been
    rightly celebrated over its two previous albums. In charting escape paths from his
    disquieting cranial confinement, Huebert has very much succeeded in setting his
    songs out on an expansive canvas, while preserving a palpable sense of nervous
    interiority and quiet desperation at their heart.
