    Ghetto Bells

    "These songs are ultimately and admirably patient and fluid, building not to grandiloquent climaxes but to a greater and greater complexity of meaning." - Pitchfork

    "The songs are all-encompassing. They sweep you up. They really get to you." - Washington Post

    Ghetto Bells matches the poetic power of Vic Chesnutt's words with some of the most elegantly simpatico backing he's ever been blessed with,including jazz icon Bill Frisell on guitars, legendary writer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Van Dyke Parks on piano, accordion, and organ, Don Heffington of Lone Justice and the Jayhawks on drums and percussion,classically trained session-man Dominic Genova on double bass, Tina Chesnutton electric bass and Liz Durrett on exquisite backing vocals. At the time,Vic Chesnutt had released a dozen albums in 15 years. Ghetto Bells has apowerful resonance that reveals itself slowly. A pair of seven-minute pieces are the heart of the album, both moving forward slowly, but ever so purposefully.One of them, "Rambunctious Cloud," is further sweetened by the presence of Van Dyke Parks on accordion and a staggering guitar solo from Bill Frisell.

    Silver Lake

    "Chesnutt's stories always strike an honest and recognizable emotionalchord, no matter how oddball the situations that surround them." - All Music

    "Vic Chesnutt might never be famous, but his songs touch on inner truths thatlurk around us. They strike something deep inside their listeners' beings." - Pop Matters

    At the time, you could count on two things with Vic Chesnutt: he wouldapproach any topic from the delicate to the mundane and he would take anunexpected angle. With an incisive eye and razor wit, he would always cutstraight to the heart of the matter. He did so to great effect on Silver Lake,giving equal weight to the tender affirmation of "In My Way, Yes" and thescathing self-critique of "Styrofoam," and applying his delightfully odd spin tothe standard love story on both "Band Camp" (a funny, nostalgic tale of romancein the high school horn section) and the Brian Wilson homage "Fa-La-La" (asaga of unanswered longing that's set in a hospital). Chesnutt's idiosyncraticquaver and nylon-string strum are abetted throughout by generous rock and soularrangements, all of which were pristinely recorded by Daniel Lanois protegeMark Howard (who also produced Lucinda Williams's World Without Tears).

    Goods And Services (On Sale)

    Giant Sand Reissue Series Release


    1995's Goods And Services was originally made for German ears only. Its vinyl re-issue will bring it to the attention of new fans as part of the Giant Sand reissue series. Once not remembered fondly by Giant Sand's Howe Gelb, time has been kind and his perception has softened with the memories of Vic Chesnutt's contribution.


    Another live record. But this sound was bloated from Euro touring and was supposed to be a reaction of only how it was sounding then. Later, that made less sense to me since every tour the bands sound would change anyway. So I am not in love with this record and thusly never made it available for the States. But now, looking back on it, it brings a smile and also moistens the eye with the missingness of Pappy and Vic Chesnutt.


    Giant Sand is a mood, explains Howe, as if trying to offer a low-key explanation for his dizzying array of artistic exploration that includes a back-catalog of some 40 albums as a singer, band leader and producer. After growing up in Pennsylvania in the 1970's, it wasn't until he moved to Tuscon, AZ that he met his musical soul mate, the guitarist Rainer Ptaceck. The two formed Giant Sandworms and issued only a handful of recordings before the Worms were put to rest; since then, Giant Sand has released 24 albums, an impressive haul when considering Howe's equally prolific output under other projects including Black Ranchette and Arizon Amp & Alternator as well as his solo releases.

    Dark Night Of The Soul

    Dark Night Of The Soul is an album by audio auteur Danger Mouse and the already much-missed Sparklehorse. The record sees the pair joined by the following remarkable roll call of guests: The Flaming Lips, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Black Francis (The Pixies), Iggy Pop, David Lynch, James Mercer (The Shins/Broken Bells), Nina Persson (The Cardigans), Suzanne Vega and Vic Chesnutt.


    Rumors of this mysterious collaborative project began to circulate in early 2009 sparking widespread anticipation and excitement. Now, following months of talks, Danger Mouse and EMI announce that Dark Night Of The Soul will be released worldwide.


    While this beautiful, haunting record being made widely and legitimately available is undoubtedly a cause for celebration, the news is shadowed by sadness following the recent passing of Mark Linkous, who released and performed under the Sparklehorse pseudonym. Dark Night Of The Soul will now stand as a defacto tribute to this well-loved, stunningly talented yet often-overlooked artist.


    In addition to be featured on two songs, celebrated film director David Lynch has created a series of original photographs for Dark Night Of The Soul adding a spectacular visual dimension that will be incorporated in to the artwork for this already unparalleled project.

    It's A Wonderful Life

    The 3rd album from the late Mark Linkous' Sparklehorse, It's A Wonderful Life, was the first to be recorded in a commercial studio with a full band. Recorded and released in 2001, after Linkous' near-fatal overdose in a London hotel room, the album is a beautiful and fragile exploration of somber themes. Featuring guest appearances from PJ Harvey, Tom Waits, and Vic Chesnutt, It's A Wonderful Life is a singer-songwriter classic reissued here on 180 gram vinyl in a deluxe gatefold jacket.

    A Rainer Ptacek Tribute: The Inner Flame (On Sale)

    Fire Records is proud to be reissuing the complete works of Rainer Ptacek, the phenomenal and much beloved slide guitarist from Tucson, Arizona, who originated Giant Sand's sound from the band's inception, as well as creating many remarkable recordings as a solo artist and with his own band, Das Combo, before succumbing to brain cancer on November 12, 1997.


    The reissues start with The Inner Flame, a compilation of accomplished and remarkably diverse artists who were brought together to honor Rainer's inspirational work, featuring talents such as Robert Plant & Jimmy Page, Emmylou Harris, Evan Dando, PJ Harvey, Victoria Williams, Vic Chesnutt, Jonathan Richman, Madeleine Peyroux and of course Giant Sand.


    Originally released in 1997, the album was conceived as both a tribute and benefit album, with the proceeds going towards Ptacek's medical bills. Reissued now as a celebration of his remarkable life and extraordinary talent, extra tracks have been added by the likes of Lucinda Williams, Grandaddy, Chuck Prophet, John Wesley Harding and Calexico's Joey Burns & John Convertino.


    We offer up this new version to pay tribute and celebrate the man, the likes of whom I've yet to ever encounter again, and allowing a glimpse now of what he had done here on the planet and to share that embrace for ever having known him at all.


    The best way here to sum up the man is perhaps by his own quote. Near the end, during his final interview, when asked the impossible question of what he thinks we are all doing here in this life, Rainer answered without hesitation: to love away the pain.

    Moths

    Jacob Morris is from Athens, Georgia. He started playing cello in Austin, TX at the age of four, and played with his musical family until he left home. The unique music community that is Athens attracted him years back. and since then he has supported some of its finest musicians and songwriters playing cello, guitar, bass, and keys with artists such as Ham 1, Vic Chesnutt, Liz Durrett, Madeline, and currently Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers. Taking cues from the psychedelic pop and folk of this robust scene, Jacob has crafted a stellar debut with his Moths album.

    You, Whom I Have Always Hated

    The Body and Thou are bands with Southern roots that have been pushing the boundaries of heavy metal for over a decade. Both have maintained relentless touring schedules, a dedication to DIY ethics and aesthetics, and a commitment to push their respective brands of extreme music into previously unexplored territories. You, Whom I Have Always Hated is a new collaborative release that showcases both bands' unique abilities to create music that is emotionally effecting and unrelenting.


    On You, Whom I Have Always Hated, each band's distinctive elements shine through and combine to create something more visceral than the sum of their parts. While the groups have different approaches to live performance and stylistic nuances, they share general creative ideas and have a history subsumed in themes of alienation, melancholy, and despair. They describe the new collaboration as "a twilight dungeon crawl exploring the winding, ruined halls of Mad King Duro's Castle, best friends at your side, enemies crushed beneath your heels, mysteries solved, and treasures found."


    In keeping with Thou's tradition of 90s worship and The Body's knack for ingenuity, the release includes versions of "Terrible Lie" by Nine inch Nails and "Coward" by Vic Chesnutt. The remainder was written collaboratively in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and then further refined on their 2014 tour together. The tour culminated in a performance at the Gilead Metal Fest in July. The Body and Thou plan to reunite in the latter half of 2015 for some more D&D and possibly even some touring.

    Wester Easter (On Sale)


    Limited To 500



    I'm at a loss to name any bands that Old Smokey sounds like. Old Smokey is a dark, gypsy/Middle Eastern, folk collision. It's a mixture of string and woodwind instruments unlike any I've seen. - Mark Ellers, Athens Banner Herald


    Old Smokey's instrumental tune Leggy, is a pleasant, wandering thing, a nice little taste of the band's upcoming full-length, reportedly titled Wester Easter. - Gabe Vodicka, Flagpole Magazine


    Local weavers of the string dream known as Old Smokey have finished their debut record, titled Wester Easter and may we say, it's an ear tickling treasure for sure. - Zeke Sayer, Gypsy Farm


    Old Smokey is a unique five piece ensemble featuring Jim Willingham on banjo, Jason Trahan on lap steel, John Fernandes on violin/clarinet/bass clarinet, Jacob Morris on cello, and Rob Lomax on drums. Their quixotic and sometimes haunting sound has developed organically; the way the instrumentation of the band blends is both complementary and evocative. This distinctive unit began playing together over two years ago. Old Smokey's first full-length album, Wester Easter will be released on Cloud Recordings.


    Wester Easter covers a wide span of musical influences, but retains a coherent sound, all its own. Some of the songs capture an Ennio Morricone spaghetti-western influence, while others take on an East Indian psychedelic palette not unlike some of the wanderings of Erkin Koray, or a lost Bollywood soundtrack from the seventies. Dead Man's Pose, a chant-y upbeat scorcher, is grounded in something akin to a New Orleans second line structure. There are a few numbers on Wester Easter that seem to be channeling the tumbleweed landscapes of The Sons of Pioneers, or the smoky country of a Roger Miller ballad. There's even a bit of a rock n' roll stomp or Velvets' rattle to numbers such as All the Way Slow -- but it's almost as if the band got lost in Appalachia on the way to the sock hop. John Fernandes, Cloud Recordings' main-man, and Old Smokey's violin and clarinet player, has approximated sonic references for Old Smokey: Fans of Bruce Langhorne, Abner Jay, Bollywood steel guitar music, and The Monks will surely dig our hard to describe sound.


    Despite a wide adventurous berth, Wester Easter is not the soundtrack of a flippant genre-jumping band. Throughout the album, their strong, sonorous mark is consistently there, as the instruments blend, swirl, and crescendo, then break down, from time to time, into the spidery banjo, drums, and plucked-cello skeletal substructure. Led by Jim's reedy lead vocal, spinning narratives or spilling out constellations of imagery, the whole band often joins, in chorus, to create layered harmonies or group chants.


    Old Smokey is compiled of veterans of the Athens music scene. Members have played with bands such as The Olivia Tremor Control, Circulatory System, Vic Chesnutt, Ham1, Moths, Madeline, The Good Ship, and The New Sound of Numbers, to name just a few of their past and current projects.
