- Full text of "Native South Americans By Patricia J. Lyon"
Since its original vinyl release in , the prescient impact of this Australian homemade dubwise solo massive by Anthony Maher aka Sheriff Lindo has become ever-more apparent and influential. With its dual island combination of Jamaican dub and UK industrial and post-punk, and the twinning of spaced electronic drums and effects with some very fine, superbly-rooted bass lines, the tectonic Ten Dubs has proven to be a durable, doubly-solid shaker.
EM Records is also pleased to announce that they are preparing Lindo's first release since Ten Dubs was launched 25 years ago. From deep underground in Australia, rising, reverberating and resonating across the globe, Ten Dubs That Shook the World vibrates on.
Newly remastered. The title-track on the A-side sounds like a house mix from Tom Tom Club. Funny and unique, but playful. On the B-side, both tracks are sleazy, cosmic slow-mo disco. In the early years of the new millennium he almost singlehandedly invented a new musical genre with global reach that spawned a whole slew of copycats. Now we see him reinvent himself once more and are left wondering where it all fits in. Actually, it's quite simple: Shantel creates a hybrid, bringing together subculture, music history and social history, mixing them with his own creative energy.
The end result is an album that reflects his own personal experience and wanders, as he puts it, between pop culture, high culture and street cred. Music history or more precisely the early history of a popular music form that spread internationally, was the thematic focus of the album Kosher Nostra -- Jewish Gangsters' Greatest Hits, an adventurous and ambitious journey through the clubs, cabarets and casinos of the '20s to '60s. Meticulously researched and compiled by Shantel and Oz Almog, the album was highly acclaimed by Martin Scorcese.
His previous albums structured basses and beats with the obvious aim of getting the dancefloor moving. This time, in departing once again from the mainstream to create yet another unique world and a completely new approach, Shantel starts with the live situation to craft a more open sound that is riskier, rougher, rawer -- in short, more colorful. Instead of an emphasis on electronic sounds, it has a more organic, grungy, garage-band feel. Shantel writes and sings all the tracks himself, plays guitar and various other instruments, and uses no samples with one exception, as described below.
He developed the ideas for the songs at random, on his travels or during long hours spent in hotel rooms. In addition to the tight rhythmic structure, the emphasis here is clearly on melodies and harmonies -- with a consistently pumped-up energy level. With frenzied guitar riffs and howling electronic keyboard in this case a vintage Fender Rhodes piano from the '70s he deconstructs a boogie into syncopation, fires up a disco number with flamenco rock guitar, and indulges in sheer hedonism with minimalist shuffle beats and a pinch of rockabilly.
This is not so much a departure from the Shantel we know, as much as a logical progression. When a child of casts a glance at the late '50s and early '60s, that period is seen through a prism. One example of this is Shantel's reinterpretation of the fulminant Finnish tango "Letkis - A Touch of Beauty," which is the only track to use a sample.
Yet the '60s flavor is constantly fragmented and reworked from a new viewpoint -- otherwise it wouldn't be a Shantel production. Comes on gram vinyl and includes a CD copy of the album. Rooted in a kind of cosmic country music, the songs regularly journey lyrically and musically into the heart of darkness while being taken outside the cosmos via Brian's raw and visceral guitar playing. With nearly their entire discography only released on CD and long unavailable , this is your first chance to have most of these classic tunes on vinyl.
Edition of copies. Don't sleep! Finally, "Look at the Harlequins" is a perfect distillation of a sound that unfolds like a dystopian nightmare; but one that's sure to play a part in the most hedonistic moments of dancefloor abandon. An education in crazy techno, turbo-charged electro and hi-energy jackin' house, Fabriclive 72 is a frenetic, fast-paced representation of a typical Boys Noize set, condensed into 70 pulsating, sweaty minutes.
Artists include: Mr. Oizo feat. Like most kids in the late s, he was bitten by the hip-hop bug, but he also got turned on by the Led Zeppelin records he picked out from his father's record collection. Currently dwelling in the heart of the city, his efforts with the synthesizer coincided with a huge boom in Norwegian electronic music, his productions recently came to the attention of Norwegian cosmic disco mogul Prins Thomas and his Full Pupp colony. Andre's tracks share the exploratory vibe of the '80s synth-pop pioneers, and misfit electronic pop musicians like John Foxx, who were forced to learn to sculpt new sounds with new tools.
His debut album, Be a Man You Ant, computes almost infinite variations on the sounds he could extract from a single modular synthesizer. So you'll find squelchy bugs in the bass-bin, weird analog squeegee smears, bright drum machine splats and the occasional significant pause. The spaces in his music are at least as important as what fills it. Listen to the movement of "I Am Square," how he gets a yearning effect from a few vapor-trail synth wipes.
Or the vivid, neon synth solos in "Aegis" and "Second Steepest. Lacquers cut by Kevin Gray. The band only played four shows during that entire year. Remarkable for a band that toured non-stop for decades. And at their August 13th show, they rolled multi-track tape which allowed for the band decades later to properly mix the show. Because the Great American Music Hall holds less than 1, people another unique thing about this show , it was an invitation only performance in which the band debuted their recent studio album Blues for Allah in a live setting.
Although One from the Vault has been available on CD nearly continuously since , the vinyl version was only available for less than a year and in Europe only in the early s. This deluxe vinyl reissue marks the first time this legendary show has been available anywhere in over 20 years and the first time in America. Within a short period of time, he has managed to create a rapidly growing fan base who have all been avidly waiting for him to release an album for some time now. His story has been an exciting rollercoaster ride, going from being discovered by Secret Cinema through Myspace, to being picked up by Cocoon and their booking agency and now touring the globe as a part of the Gem and Bonheur agency roster.
The album takes you on a trip through Egbert's vision of melodic techno In his own words: "One thing I often miss at techno parties is warmth. I would like to bring that back to techno. We also get a taste of Egbert's raw side with the powerful pumping grooves and punishing dark bass lines on "Tegno" and "Shulgin. Lobi produced five studio albums during his career, as well as four live releases, including the solo acoustic session Rainy Season Blues Glitterhouse, But Bamako Nights offers the deepest and most intimate record of this artist's astounding power onstage in a small Bamako nightclub.
In , the Bar Bozo was a unique destination. Mali's democracy was just a few years old, and people were finding new ways to exercise freedom. The bar was an unglamorous downtown nightspot, dark and often crowded. It didn't cater to elites, but working people, who came to drink and dance and enjoy a live band long into the night. His earthy blend of Bambara roots and edgy electric guitar, and his philosophical songs concerning social life and the challenges rural people face in the city, were made-to-order for Bar Bozo. No wonder he packed the place on a weekly basis -- Lobi had begun recording albums by that time, and performing in Europe with an acoustic ensemble.
But at Bar Bozo, he and his small electric ensemble were developing a new, rawer sound, one that would make Lobi a staple of Bamako's live scene, and a legend of African blues celebrated around the world. You can hear in this smoldering session Lobi's joy at having recently acquired a flanger pedal.
His solos build to soaring, ecstatic heights, as unhinged as anything in African rock since. The set starts out slow and meditative with "Ni tugula mogo mi ko," conjuring a trance atmosphere that Lobi elevates systematically with his keening vocal and eloquent picking. You can almost feel the weight of a sweltering Bamako night as Lobi forcefully guides his band though musical catharsis.
By the time they kick into high gear on "Sigui Nyongon son fo," the weight has lifted and spirits are flying.
It's hard to say enough about Lobi as a guitar stylist. A few weeks after this recording was made, Bamako authorities closed down the Bar Bozo, and Lobi had to move his joyful party to an obscure venue on the outskirts of town. Bamako Nights is a time capsule recording. It evokes an artist, a time, and a place that came together with amazing potency, and can never be recreated. Ultra-rare second album recorded in in Nigeria by six band members from Porto Novo, a city in the eastern part of Benin. Info about the band remained really hard to find.
Sadly, all the musicians died, as did the lead singer in a tragic car accident. After their first album in , Ogassa "Oga" means master in Nigerian dialect was touring a lot in West Africa, thanks to radio hits such as "Segbele-Gbele" and "Ajimevi. Most of these songs were only pressed once on vinyl by the famous Albarika label in Cotonou and have remained unreleased since.
Presented in a heavy jacket on gram vinyl. Limited to copies only. Includes a digital download code, plus a bonus CD with unreleased tracks. After a road-trip to Babylon Babylon by Car, their first album released in , they come back to haunt dark clubs with a second album, Sans Dormir. The album consists of 10 tracks, mostly sung, some of which have already been released in the form of singles and remixes. For the second album, the battered Cadillac comes to a stop in the parking lot of a deserted nightclub, as suggested by the visuals presented with the project, abandoned French clubs as photographed by Phillipe Lebruman.
Opening with a spectral visit from downstairs, "Basement Love," the album continues with "Grands Boulevards," an instinctive, nocturnal trip where rockabilly guitars rub elbows with Moogs while giving an account of obsessions, recurring dreams and waking nightmares. The sweet "Unfinished Business" makes an attempt at reconciliation, before the synthesizers all emerge for the title-track. In the cold but heartfelt voices of the artists is a meeting of male and female intimacy, which sometimes replies to each other "Unfinished Business".
The two members of Bot'Ox are prominent figures of electronic music "made in France. Cosmo Vitelli and Julien Briffaz came together by indulging their common obsessions: an aesthetic mechanical universe, marked by the mythology of the automobile, the paradoxical fragility of its bodywork, and a fanatical mutating vision of music. This highway alternates car chases, anxiety-filled passages through customs and forest walks at dusk. Featuring vocal contributions from Marissa Nadler. This American version of the CD contains two bonus tracks not available elsewhere.
After releasing three albums in three years, Emily Jane White wrote over sketches between January and October Her new album is a compilation of these songs. Recorded in a secluded studio in Sonoma County, California, the quiet environment provided Emily a place to explore new directions and avenues with artistic integrity and creative control.
She layered synthesizer, electric guitar and multiple tracks of vocals into nine heavily reverbed scenes. With the help of friends and collaborators, Emily's worlds were diversified with strings, backing vocals, and heavy drums. Love, anger, and violence move through each vignette. Kinship generates complex intimacies. Love can entrap the unwary and betray the devoted. Some more classic house is on the menu here, starting off with "From the Ghetto," which is a strong hypno-groove house-banger. On the remix you'll find Barcelona's man of the moment, Baldo. On the other side is "Here We Are," which is a deep groovin' and warm Detroit-sounding house track.
The remix treatment is from another one of Barcelona's new emerging talents, Clip!. Here he gives us a brilliant new version featuring all the right Detroit elements. The Velvet Underground were arguably at their live peak in late Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison, Maureen Tucker and Doug Yule who'd replaced John Cale a full year previously had developed into a sensationally tight and adventurous quartet, and this show -- the first of two recorded on consecutive nights before a tiny audience in Dallas, Texas -- is unquestionably one of the finest surviving documents of them in performance.
Remastered sound and background notes included. Collberg was eight when he discovered his love for music, 16 the first time he won a band contest, 18 when he debuted his first album, and 22 when he created On the Wreath -- an album full of catchy and guitar-oriented songs, and gems many a hyped UK band would build their entire career upon. Andrew is not British, though. His hometown is Tucson, Arizona, and the opinion leaders in Great Britain haven't discovered this lively scene in the Southwest U.
Andrew Collberg belongs to a group of incredibly talented musicians such as Brian Lopez, Sergio Mendoza, and Gabriel Sullivan, who have already set foot in Europe on their legendary "Tucson Songs" tour in Minds Hits is not only another milestone in Andrew Collberg's musical evolution -- the album opens up a new perspective of the Sweden-born musician who taps the musical heritage of his adoptive hometown Tucson without prejudice and distills it to his very own sound.
Minds Hits is undoubtedly a masterpiece -- more mature and self-sufficient than its predecessor, but still as carefree as Andrew Collberg has us accustomed to. What was different was that in Snakegrinder made a record of their finest 'homegrown' attempts, for the local admirers, and then quietly slithered away. Worldwide recognition would take another generation or so. Since then, the album has garnered accolades from the Acid Archives crowd and so we felt the time was right to give the group's efforts a proper and properly licensed from the band presentation, with an 'old-style' heavy gatefold sleeve containing pics, gig posters, song lyrics and liner notes by producer and long-time fan Gregor Alligator.
Continuing a long and fruitful creative relationship, Tindersticks have completed their 7th original film score for renowned director Claire Denis, for her provocative thriller Les Salauds trans. The film premiered at Cannes in Un Certain Regard and offers confirmation, were it needed, of Denis' status as one of the most exciting and innovative filmmakers currently working, and of one of the most consistent and unique partnerships existing between a director and a group of musicians.
Marking a fundamental stylistic departure for the band, the hypnotic electronic score resonates with the darkly sensual and dream-like rhythms of the film's revenge narrative, featuring a new twist on the Hot Chocolate classic "Put Your Love in Me. On the creative process Claire Denis says: "Stuart read the screenplay, which I believe upset him a little.
It took him time to find his bearings and start composing. I told him the film began in the rain, and suggested echoing this with dissonant electronic music. We worked together as we're accustomed to: I'd go and see him in his studio in Creuse, he'd come to Paris to make me listen and we'd talk. I started to experiment with synthetic sounds -- a strange environment, I felt like that sailor, surrounded by equipment and ideas that I didn't understand. The idea to use Hot Chocolate's 'Put Your Love in Me' was an early point of connection for me, to shift the desperation in that song into a different space, to give me something to hold on to and to grow from.
The band are celebrating this special milestone with a plethora of exciting new music and art projects across including their 10th studio album Across Six Leap Years, and the autumn UK release of the book Singing Skies, the first collaboration between Staples and his wife, artist Suzanne Osborne. Now they intensify their open approach by transforming it into sublime pop -- a change that suits them extremely well.
Three artists accepted the invitation to put a new perspective on this gem. Egokind, well-booked Berlin sound scientist, adds even more deepness to the mix and makes a proposal on how Burial's vocal cuts could sound in daylight. Their M. When Messiaen set out to transcribe birds' songs as models for his compositions, he couldn't have predicted that by now wild birds would have started to learn mobile phone ringtone patterns.
For A System of Objects, Raudive maps an obliquely constructed world in which you lose all certainty of what is nature and what is design. Raudive celebrates dance and auditory scenes as rituals, employing our surroundings as sources of ahistorical "found sound" -- primitive technologies used to reach magickal states. A drum machine and a wooden stick, a sawtooth-shaped electric current and a split rock all turn into empirical objects of the same class, without a definite past or a predictable impact.
We have become dependent on technology we don't grasp beyond its display surface. Our statistics deceive us. Lost on reason, we are thrown back on the ritual to reveal the hidden relations of what surrounds us: the club as emblematic center of the emancipated individual, longing to bond with equals, again. One of the original British techno innovators in the s, after Oliver Ho shifted gear with his Raudive alias towards slower, hypnotically bouncing rhythms.

The Monuments came into being in January in Turin when Mauro Tavella keyboards, programming and Andrea Costa keyboards, voice pooled their artistic experiences. From the outset, they produced exclusively synthesized music, following the natural evolution in electronic music from the early days with monophonic synthesizers to the latest virtual sounds generated with the aid of computers.
The Monuments released in their only official record on Discordie, a mini-LP called Age, comprising six incredibly fantastic electro-pop tracks, here reissued by Mannequin Records with two bonus tracks, "Veiled Lady" and "The Seals," which are outtakes from the same period. All the tracks were recorded on a Tascam 8-track, with external synchronization of the percussion, at the TKS Studio in Torino. From onwards, they focused exclusively on music for theater, radio and independent film, writing scores for the opening sequences of programs for some of the most important Italian TV companies as well as soundtracks for documentaries.
Some critics thought of this mini-LP as the best electro-pop record ever to come out of Italy. A masterpiece. Artwork reworked from the original cover from Limited edition of copies. When Politburo split in , Tommy continued to experiment with various projects and sounds, including Thugs, Quiet with members of Monuments and Deafear , Noxeda, and Lacrimal, with whom he still plays today.
Also presented here are three bonus demo tracks: a rare version of "Close Your Eyes" and two out-takes from "Vuh-Ya" and "Tuxedo Dance. Nelson grew up around Portland and had a strong background in music and music theory. He built a PAIA synthesizer when he was in junior high and developed a keen intuition for analog synthesis. Armed with more gear as time went on Sequential Circuits sequencer, Oberheim DS-2, etc , Paul was offered an opportunity to record his own album which led to the Recording Associates sessions during which Vortex was born. The opening track 'Automated Man,' which also happens to be the only track with vocals, is a slab of genuine electro greatness with its sharp synth hooks and vocoded vocals.
The rest of side 2 'Vortex ' is a magnificent build up of ambient soundscapes that morph into a slow cosmic burner and fades out again into the darkness to close the LP. All tracks have been restored and remastered by Paul Nelson for this release. For many years this LP could be found in the PNW in record bins but over the last decade, it has been become quite rare which has led to it fetching rather high prices on the collector's market.
Medical Records is thrilled to introduce the world to this work of art again. For fans of library synth, sci-fi soundtracks, and other more sequenced electronic acts such as Tangerine Dream, Axxess, and minimal synth. This reissue is presented on high-quality gram splatter paint on opaque white vinyl. Features exact reproduction of the front and infamous back covers. The duo, consisting of Dasz also in Dolina and Ame De Boue and Christina aka Froe Char , expertly craft dark and atmospheric songs laced with unbridled passion in the context of synth-laden melodies, dominant percussion and pensive vocals.
The opening track 'Ulysses,' sets the mood with uncompromising intensity and passion with serious low frequency tones and catchy synth drenched hooks. The dreamy and brooding 'Our Bodies' starts the B side and is a definite standout tracks. The wonderful and melancholy pop track 'Flying Lights' is also included on the LP and was previously featured on the lovely compilation Circuit D'Actes 3 on the French La Forme Lente imprint earlier this year.
The relentlessly apocalyptic 'Cannibals' is yet another magnificent track worth mentioning here. Presented on high-quality gram ultra-clear heavyweight vinyl. This compilation includes five complete A and B sides as well as two other tracks that only appeared on obscure compilations in the early '80s. Featuring Chris Payne who also performed synth work on the iconic Pleasure Principle by none other than Gary Numan , the track 'Direct Lines' is pure synthpop perfection. The second featured artist is Boston's Psychic Youth who released one lone 7" in One of the members, Perry Geyer, was also a founding member of the industrial outfit Manufacture.
Geyer himself. Another excruciatingly rare 7" is the self-titled single by UK's Aaah! Possibly even rarer is the Shazam single released in in the UK. Both tracks from the single are included here. The 2 wild card tracks if you will on the record are 'Panic in Your Mind' by N. Both tracks were plucked from rare wave compilations from the early '80s. The final single featured is the solo outing by Claude Arto from Mathematiques Modernes. Released in on Celluloid France , the two tracks drip synthetic bloops and blips while being propelled by rhythmic electro sequences.
A perfect closing of each side of the LP. This collection will certainly appeal to fans of the rare minimal synth culture, early stripped down synth pop, or anybody else who has wanted even one of these tracks on wax again as they are all quite rare. This reissue is presented on high-quality gram splatter paint on transparent green vinyl. Engineered by Jorge Elbrecht, the EP finds the trio shredding through a similar soundscape: striking a balance between the blistering walls of noise they're renowned for, with airy, expansive atmospherics that allow the songs to breathe and the melodies to seep through.
Opener 'Last Boss' showcases this dynamic, with Jasamine White-Gluz's airy vocals dancing around the clear space of the verses, before the chorus' wall of pummeling guitars fill all voids. Although touching on his past in Yellow Swans with Pete Swanson , Saloman continues to explore the noises within rather than the purely physical component of his former collaborator.
That's not saying this is lighthearted material. Quite the contrary. This is an album that needs to be experienced on proper volume for potential heart-stopping effect. Sounding as if you may be the last person left on earth, Soldier's Requiem guides you through rain-filled open spaces, epic showdowns and abandoned cities.
The debris is floating and in the shadow lurks a guitar-picking Vincent Gallo. Meanwhile, there seems to be marching bands closing in on all fronts while a punk band playing Tim Hecker tracks can be heard from the horizon. Soldier's Requiem confirms Saloman as a man able to further his own musicality while regaining the key elements to his recipe. This is music for modern decay and melancholy. Formed in in Bristol, the duo of Mark Phillips MAP and Robert Lawrence came together with a shared passion for krautrock, industrial electronics, and the burgeoning DIY tape scene as well as being influence by the Dadaist movement and the works of Burroughs and Ballard.
Unconventional and quirky, yet at times melancholic and romantic their music was a perfect escape from the urban decay of early '80s Bristol and Cardiff, the two cities they travelled between at weekends to record. Although unashamedly electronic, the sound of Five Time of Dust is far harder to pin down, in part perhaps due to their location. Both Phillips and Lawrence produced music that owed little to any scene happening in London, Manchester or Sheffield at the time.
As a result, the majority of their output sounds like perfectly formed electronic curiosities. The material on Smile with the Eyes spans recordings Lawrence and Phillips made between As a follow up to The Dadacomputer, their debut cassette release as a duo which we reissued earlier this year, Smile with the Eyes remains lo-fi but is musically more complex. The recordings are catchy, curious and emotionally rich. Whereas The Dadacomputer could be compared with the early output of Robert Rental, Smile with the Eyes is a collection of works that stands all on its own.
Smile with the Eyes is a double LP pressed on gram black vinyl and housed in a heavyweight gatefold sleeve. Limited edition to numbered copies. The single features two more epic, pioneering masterpieces.isanatma.tk

And the flip side is a more straightforward BPM, 11 minute number entitled 'Ultrabase,' which is an unashamed slab of innovative dub techno from , existing completely outside of its genre. Neither of these tracks have ever been released before. The pressing is limited to copies, all pressed on gram clear electric blue vinyl, accompanied by a hand-numbered matte printed sleeve. The D. In fact it was Daniel Miller, supporter and Mute boss himself who first recognized this when he proclaimed them 'the maiden aunts of electronic music. It stands out as an important record, capturing the mundane with modern electronics and remains as an artifact representative of the band before they went on to reach pop chart success.
Apart from their releases on Survival and Polydor, Hard Corps gained some notoriety for their unique and uncompromising live shows throughout the s. It was the juxtaposition between their hard edged industrial sound and the fragile and enigmatic vocals of French front woman Regine Fetet that created an unusual dichotomy, lending to their strength of character as a band and thus allowing them to stand out from the rest.
As a follow up to Clean Tables Have to Be Burnt , Rarities compiles the outtakes and demos that were left behind. Tracks that truly never saw the light of day. Recorded in Moscow in , these are re-recordings of Artemiev's soundtracks to three classic s Tarkovsky films. At the time of its release in , there were no legitimately available versions of the original soundtracks and Artemiev chose to fill that void in the market with these re-recordings.
All officially licensed from the artist himself. She also performed the laid-back vocals on this release. Remixes by Dapayk and Daze Maxim complete the package. The original track shows influences in dub, but with an elegant touch. Statik also uses minimalistic '80s drum-sound patterns, smooth bass lines, tape-echoed chord sounds and Perera's vocals.
Dapayk moves his remix more in the tech-house genre, while Daze Maxim's remix is more in the minimal direction. Statik himself marks the finish of the EP, and his dub mix slowly rolls down the shutters. Including four different tracks, Alfred aims to surprise his audience by proving his vast artistic skills. Suit is pleased to reissue on LP some of the only known recordings from the infamous occultist, mystic, magician, poet, novelist, sexual deviant, and all-around misfit, Aleister Crowley.
Recorded onto wax cylinder in the early s, and later transferred to 78 RPM discs, this material has been unavailable on LP since the first limited edition of copies released in through the efforts of Mr. David Tibet of Current 93 infamy. The tracks include Crowley's recitation of the first two Enochian Keys, original poetry, incantations, and songs. An absolutely essential piece of occult history reissued on LP. Baptize Me in Wine compiles that classic track along with 18 other specimens of pure, unhinged, guttural R 'n' B madness into what is sure to be considered the definitive Hawkins' collection on the vinyl market.
Most tracks were originally released as singles on the Okeh label except for the last four, which are outtakes from the first album. There really must be something in the water out there. Set aside as marginal, the rest have been left ignored due to the debatable and apparently set in stone statement that the history of Spanish rock starts with the legendary festivals at Madrid's Price venue promoted by musician Pepe Nieto, then drummer in Los Pekenikes. Without wanting to reduce in the slightest the importance of those shows as a revitalizing element of Spain's rock scene, the start date of those famed Madrid matinees end of doesn't respect the fact that at the end of the '50s, and at the pace that the autarkic Spanish society of the time allowed, the foreign young rhythms slowly reached the country with the healthy intention to stay and make people dance.
Despite the insufficient development of Spain's music industry, those years enjoyed an abundance of international record releases -- dozens and dozens of splendid EPs with stunning covers of new youthful images that soon found their obligatory Spanish counterparts. But above all, these were valuable records often ignored for decades due to a rushed view of history and the cruel supremacy of some genres above others.
Today, there is hardly any doubt that the enthusiastic Spanish scene of the late '50s and early '60s was as broad and varied as was to be expected, and it's not hard to understand the tremendous excitement of a generation of musicians that started travelling fast along a road which no fellow countryfolk had crossed before.
The spectacular arrival of Twist in Spain in , undoubtedly one of the few tolerated cultural revolutions of those years, would prove to be a valuable turning point. Apart from its musical weight, Twist was easy to dance to, bursting with rhythm and not strict on the age of its followers; besides, it could be danced to in pairs without touching -- pure contemplative hedonism which would herald the coming of the mod aesthetics. Twist's popular explosion was so big, that some of Spain's early music journalists declared that its tremendous success would end rock 'n' roll.
Truth is, after Twist came other dances and rhythms almost at a monthly rate, such as surf, the Madison, the Monkey, the Hully-Gully. Compiled by the passionate expert Miguel Sr Patilla, Pippermint Twist is born with the will to dig deep into that obscure period of Spanish rock history. Obscure and well-hidden, the huge majority of the tracks chosen for this compilation were featured on B-sides, nuggets that were frequently placed there by the record company and sometimes even by the artist, still insecure about the appeal of this new music. These 24 tracks gloriously present the sense of newness, strength and youthful dignity which made them possible during some musically uncertain years.
Includes a booklet with all the original record sleeves and artist photos. Salvatore Sciarrino's music hypnotizes. Instead of resulting from laborious acts of composition, it often seems to have been captured in the here and now, as an echo of hidden mystery plays. At other times one has the impression of witnessing volcanic experiments, with a threatening bubbling that recalls the sound of water and fire meeting, solid and ethereal elements mingling in telluric depths. Any performer seeking to do justice to such music must have some grasp of the magician's art.
Salvatore Sciarrino, born in Palermo in , engaged with the visual arts from early childhood and began painting at the age of four. At the age of 12 he took composition lessons with Antonio Titone, gaining further impulses through tuition from Turi Belfiore and Franco Evangelisti. From until he studied music history at the University of Palermo, then he relocated to Rome, where he attended Evangelisti's electronic music course at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia.
After success in several competitions, his career developed as a soloist and chamber musician in Europe and the USA. He is a founding member of the Stuttgart ensemble Ascolta, with whom he has appeared at all the major festivals for new music. Music degree and PhD. Kritische Theorie der Musik. I felt the need to work separately through the different expressive areas I had previously sought to combine in the form of cycles specifically conceived for this purpose, in order to gather the necessary experience so that, one day, my musical language would once again be able to reach some form of higher synthesis.
He writes -- using conservative means -- a music whose conservative nature is experienced as non-conservative; no other composer achieved this. He is a miracle in the midst of modernity. Since moving to Switzerland in , he has had two European premieres at the Musikverein in Vienna, as well as performances in Zurich. It will be repeated in December in Lucerne. But don't miss the other pieces from Gustavo Beytelmann, Luis Borda, Pablo Aguirre, and Miguel Varvello, all of which make for a really unusual and interesting tango recording.
Two original tracks, "Maslo" and "Moment," shaped by top quality underground sounds and airy atmospheres for the dancefloors. The free download code gives access to all these tracks digitally for the first time, as well as a chance to get a sneak preview of the next Paradise Bangkok 7".
As ever, it comes in a limited edition of copies, with a numbered, hand stitched silk-screened sleeve, plus comic telling the strange myth about the origins of this mysterious Thai collective. Gathering 20 of the most fuzz-drenched obscurities to have emerged from late '60s America and beyond, it's a feast for fans of psychedelic garage rock, and comes complete with background notes and rare photos. Remastered sound. John Birks 'Dizzy' Gillespie was a demi-God of 20th Century jazz, pioneering the revolution that was be-bop.
And he was still pushing out the boundaries at Perception Records in , fusing jazz and funk in breathtaking style. Part four reflects two busy years of work and compiles different artist albums and numerous ass-shaking 12" releases on two steamy compact discs. Starring, for example, Irish queen Roisin Murphy with the slow-pumping "Simulation," which is also featured here in the floor-burning remix by Mano Le Tough.
Speaking of Mano Le Tough, he has become one of the rising stars of the international house scene in the last couple of years, and released his debut album on Permanent Vacation. Even Innervision's Dixon and Italian producers Tale Of Us became fans of Mano's warm and melodic sound and got so intrigued with the music that they both created their own anthemic versions of "Everything You've Done Before" and "Primative People," that made many dancers happy. John Talabot was also responsible for some of the most defining moments of dance music in the past two years.
Together with long time Vacationer Bostro Pesopeo, Pional also worked on their alternative vision of house music that resulted in the Yes EP, from which the title-track is featured here. Bostro Pesopeo was also not lazy himself and released his third solo EP in and comes correct here with "Cheer Up. No Permanent Vacation compilation would be complete without a Woolfy vs. Projections track, one of the most long-lived artists on the label. Also featured is the flute heaven by the tag-team of Jacob Korn, Good Guy Mikesh and Filburt, as well as heart-warming deep house by The Drifter, and vintage synth-house by Swedish whizz-kid Bobby Bell.
The compilation shows Permanent Vacation's diversity without being random and proves that they are one of the most consistent indie labels -- always trying to push boundaries in different directions, from Kraut house to quirky disco. Blumm has released his melodic experiments around the acoustic guitar for over 15 years. In their contemplative reduction, they miraculously always hit right in the heart. Pitchfork said: "The man makes some damn charming music.
Blumm proves that he doesn't opt for routine with his eighth full-length solo release: his unfailing arsenal of acoustic instruments and choice circuits frame the most energetic Blumm sound we have lived to see so far. The album title perfectly describes its energy. Blumm returns from a six-year hiatus as a solo artist in which he has "rehearsed and learned, multiplied and lost track on purpose.
It all goes on, and always up, and from there into unknown dimensions. He goes astray in the word's finest meaning. And he goes up, up, not as a sweaty "HarderBetterFasterStronger," but with Blumm's steady, heartfelt pling of the acoustic guitar with his tin cookie-box, through which he, in fact, plays back his sounds, in order to re-record them, with his double bass, his keys, and kalimba. Blumm is back from the musical travels of his collaborations. What he has experienced on these musical field trips he now returns to his solo project.
Here's the best bit: Blumm sings -- through that very cookie-box -- which sounds like an exquisite vintage amp. Blumm further defines his subtle and unique sonic identity between classical guitar and electronic production. It's house music for music lovers, and sure to go over big with discerning dancefloors. Likewise, the epic minute "You" develops with a sense of style and restraint often missing in the club, and revolves around beautifully-realized synth pads over a crisp, punchy rhythm. The first felicitator is Terrence Dixon of Tresor fame.
His track "Pacers" is an intriguing minute journey. On the flip we find "Spirals," a stirring track from Iron Curtis. After his remix for Matthias Vogt's "Together as One," the Berlin-based producer delivers his first original for Polytone. Architects that need their fixed floorplan might call it a "folk-rock album" or "electro-album," but that's only half of it. Building The Building means ethereal spaces and oscillating sound, conveyed on fragile CinemaScope. This is actual meta-pop with the right amounts of enigma.
And Quintessentials loves the music-freaks. For part three of this compilation project, Quintessentials again offers four quality cuts of house music. Deep, raw, old school, new school, pumping, jacking, mellow -- it's all there. Digitally remastered, iconic cover art intact. Beyond-essential late '70s underground listening which has carried near boundless influence.
Classic punk-electronic trance that sounds as intense and vivid as ever and unlike some of their peers from the era, still as dangerously futuristic. Label-heads John Swing and EMG touch down with their inimitable flair and mischievous beat programming, with the former delivering a signature Swing flex -- dusty, off-kilter samples and slicing percussion -- while the latter spreads the groove over two jams on the flipside -- pounding kicks, degenerate vocal snippets and gritty synth chords.
As always, Relative releases only on vinyl and cuts direct from the source -- the truth. As gifted a singer, composer and arranger as he was, his genius was destined to remain a well-kept secret during his lifetime by virtue of the complete disregard -- verging on invisibility -- in which song-poem records were held. He was a commercial musician in the most literal sense of the word, but within those confines, he displayed an oddball, personal vision that frequently transcended the work-for-hire nature of his music.
Dating from to , the sixteen previously un-reissued songs showcase the scope of his work: the should've-been-a-hit 'You and I'; the elegant exotica of 'I Love Lovely Chinese Gal'; the history lesson of 'The Explosion of Holden 22 Mine'; the harrowing psycho-killer musings of the title track; 'I'm Proud to Be a Hippie from Mississippi,' the stoner's answer to Merle Haggard's 'Okie From Muskogee'; the low-fi 'The Game of Love' which, in the tradition of Keith's infamous 'I'm Just the Other Woman,' prompted the dissatisfied customer to request a more conventional re-take ; the disturbingly desperate 'Sing My Death Note,' which was discovered on one of Keith's private reels; and the unclassifiable what-the-fuck-ness of 'Abidin' Tuh the Rule.

Improvised praise for Yehia the holy man, by masters Super Onze, recorded in the early '90s. Distortion and fuzz from pickups and tape hiss reveal the soundscape of the dusty Northern villages, where takamba blares from radios, boomboxes, and old cassette tapes.

After being burned in a fire and the death of his son, he became an NYC vagrant and eventually succumbed to pneumonia and cardiac arrest in at age With his releases for own label It's, and a releases and remixes on a bunch of other imprints such as Laid, Kann Records, and Acid Test, he has already created a tiny fanhood of moon-addicts and dreamers all around the globe. SStudios is a new venture in the Software Recording Co.
Inspired by the historical intersections of live performance and studio post-production, Wake Up Awesome is a modern kind of fusion in technique as well as genre. At its core are three artists highly experienced with both instant and labored composition. Together, they found the studio generated improvisations were iteratively developed by each on their own. Passages of real-time improvisation duck and swerve into electro-concrete tangles of samples, edits and juxtaposition -- all you'd want out of a world of mechanical possibility.
If it sounds intentional on the record, it was. If Yeh and Marhaug's more electronic affinities in their respective practices place them as the 'producers,' then Lee's cello often leads the drive as a sort of soloist. The resulting conversation is genuinely both serious and iconoclastic. All three artists have a history of dialogue, but this is the first time they've hung out for the record -- we're very happy that they did. Limited numbered edition of 1, LP includes DL code. The first release is the album from the audiovisual concept called XNX.
The live concept intervenes in a space and creates what we call a "chaos bubble" by using sound and visual design to surround people in a way that they feel inside of a space that is altering their perceptions.
This album represents the works of XNX that were made between and Over ten years of audio production that was applied to several areas of art such as contemporary dance, video and installments. Soundtrack from a Life Unexpected is made in a way that all tracks are continuous so it presents itself as a voyage through different music styles, feelings and sensations, all combined in a way that the result is a whole soundtrack itself, which should be listened in one continuous take.
Aljawal trans. Each song reflects a new stop in the journey, with new cities and new people along the way. Born in the capital city of Sudan, Khartoum, Alsarah spent the first eight years of her life here before she relocated to Taez, Yemen with her family to escape the ever-stifling regime in her native country.
She abruptly moved to the U. On Aljawal, he managed to capture and play with an analog sound that stretched the boundaries of the Sudanese rhythms and melodies that Alsarah had grown up with. A unique record was imagined and is finally presented here after a two-year interplay of ideas and interaction between France and Brooklyn, Alsarah's adopted home. The DJ QU remix is a perfect accompaniment, coating the original version's classic New York house elements with a deeper, hypnotic tribal rhythm. Whether it was the disco-infused cool of Backflash or the tribal rhythms found on his debut album Basement Story, through hard work, rather than by miracle, Marco Biagini matured into a producer who is at the top of his game.
With Music is a Miracle Kellerkind now delivers a sophomore album that offers itself as a diverse and surprising love letter to music, carrying his distinct handwriting. On "Your Love," Kellerkind organically eases us into the album as deep bongos float over casual guitar licks and drawn-out synth melodies. Gentle murmurs slowly form into a distant soul vocal while sunny saxophones create a relaxed and beautifully fragile vibe.
Here, cowbells and laser-synths scream trademark Kellerkind: sugary without being cheesy, laidback yet never losing sight of the groove. Things get a little tougher on the next tracks. While "Give Me the Beat Back" utilizes a hip-house chant, dubbed-out chords and hard-hitting snares to showcase a bouncy, UK-sounding bass-line, "Projection" loops Jake The Rapper's instantly recognizable voice and a classic disco riff to create seven minutes of fun.
Here, an extremely funky garage bass-line, Chicago strings and urgent trumpets surprise us as they drop after a Moodyman-esque monologue. On "It's Like That" a dusty dub-house groove then flows through clonking percussion and a pitched-down vocal until classicistic chords eventually wash over the arrangement.
Kellerkind reveals a completely new facet on the electronic ballad "Monologue," which features Laura Wiesmann's soulful vox. This is tasteful pop that bedazzles due to its reduced nature, honest vulnerability, and musical beat. Kellerkind doesn't like to stand still, something he certainly proves with Music is a Miracle. Lion contains two brand-new tracks, with remixes by Stimming and Wolfram.
They are all melodic and intelligent, catchy and sophisticated. Another satisfying page-turner. Family Vacation is Boman's debut album. A friend says the album sounds like 'weird Jamaican space disco,' so maybe it's a fitting reference," says Boman. Axel Boman's music has also been described as "raw and playful house music drenched in oceans of soul. Doused in both color and darkness, Afterlife sees the Sin Cos Tan duo of musical omnipresence Jori Hulkkonen and singer-songwriter Juho Paalosmaa of Villa Nah plunging head-long into a netherworld of electro-pop.
The follow-up offers a slightly different angle on the genre, adding variety, organic elements and a more thematically profound approach than the debut. Hearts are broken, spirits awoken -- and even Casey Spooner of Fischerspooner makes an appearance. Long established as a cult classic and collector's grail, Mick Burgoyne and Leigh Dolphin's sole album is presented here with their full cooperation. Recorded in when they were just 19 years old and fresh to the studio, Fresh Maggots Hatched is one of the best distillations of UK folk and psychedelia ever recorded.
Combining gentle, pastoral songs with violent fuzz guitar, it's a highly unusual and powerful record that enjoyed extravagant acclaim on release. I started to think of my Mount Rushmore of Chico journalism. Good luck to you, Robert. My window looks out on the Saturday-morning market.
I would hope that people would give me a listen and put themselves in my shoes. For me personally, it is not a problem with the market per se, but that the market has become so successful that the competition for parking spaces for our customers has pitted the market vendors and their customers against downtown businesses and their customers. The market has expanded its offerings beyond just fruits and veggies; they are now in direct competition with our businesses.
The impact has gone from being a benefit to a detriment for a majority of downtown businesses. The recent disparaging letters to the editor do nothing to solve the problems. His recent letter did nothing but harm the negotiations. QuestiOns answered Health Insurance Specialist with 12 years experience and a law degree. It will be mandatory to carry health insurance by January Jenkins, esq.
Growing Chico for Years. May 30, I frequent the market every week. And every week my family and I choose someplace different to eat or go visit. By now, we have definitely doubled and tripled visits to some places. My point is that the only reason we visit these downtown businesses on Saturdays is because we come into town for the market.
The day and location to me are ideal, and I think that the City Council should just leave well enough alone. Hear, hear! Well-written article. Unfortunately, this campaign promise has never been brought to fruition. The status-quo conditions of Southside Oroville without annexation are: No voting privileges in city issues and mayoral elections; no sidewalks for residents who are wheelchair-bound, or for mothers with strollers, and especially for students of all ages who walk to school; poor drainage in the rainy winter months make some streets a virtual wading pool and impassable; little or no county funding for low-income housing; and there is continued disparity for Southside Oroville residents.
I too. I can still recall a little coffee shop in San Francisco that we vagabonds spent many hours sitting in front of, most of us with little to no money. I was 18 and did not take such matters into consideration. I believe the majority of people sitting and lying on the sidewalks and in our doorways have chosen this lifestyle. This is a respect issue. I believe that if we simply talk to them and ask for their assistance, and explain our dependency on a thriving storefront, then many will respect that. Who would really feel comfortable sending their child or themselves through a crowd of people lounging around the door?
Mayor Goloff stated that council members struggled to get budgetary details they asked for, and faced additional uncontrollable circumstances. I agree the council did not cause the economic downturn. Over the last seven years, the liberal-majority council was told by both conservative council members and members of the public who spoke at City Council and Finance Committee meetings that the city was going in the wrong direction, just to be told they did not understand city finance.
Council members should know how to read a financial statement and know they were being given bad advice. Once more I ask that [longtime liberal council members Goloff, Gruendl and Ann Schwab] do the morally right thing and resign from the City Council. Had the last seven years been a conservative majority City Council, I would be asking for them to resign. In , the City Council was taken over by a liberal majority and has controlled the council since. From , Gruendl was the chair of the Finance Committee.
Mary Goloff was also on the committee for this time, along with one conservative committee member. Please go to www. Bill Nichols L. Absolutely not. They come down here for the market and shop around other stores. I would say it brings the community together. Everybody should have a chance to make a little something.

Clifford, and has continued as a family business ever since. The store has yet to announce a closing date, but it is holding a retirement sale in the meantime. The Nord location was purchased by neighboring Star Liquors, which plans to bulldoze the building to expand its store. The city had already been collecting the fee from cellular providers, but the measure would have codified the practice.

He showed aerial photos of graded acres—and, in some cases, greenhouses under construction—in the Paradise, Magalia and Concow areas, as well as land near Forbestown and Feather Falls.
Even so, a project that involves excavating more than 50 cubic yards requires the landowner to first apply for an exemption. A second site on the same piece of property includes a freshly plowed road and more than 1, cubic yards of excavated soil. To the south, off Crystal Ranch Road near Lake Oroville, is a site where a significant amount of erosion took place over the winter; eroded material from the site could make its way to the creeks that feed the lake, Fossum pointed out.
None of the sites have residences on them, he said, but some do have motor homes, travel trailers and greenhouses, including one that measures 70 feet long.

No beer, no business haranjiv Singh, the owner of the Mangrove Mini Mart at the corner of Fifth and Mangrove avenues, says he has been treated unfairly in his pursuit of an alcohol license.

Taking life back from hip and knee pain When the pain you are experiencing in your hips or knees severely restricts your ability to walk or perform simple activities, it may be time to talk to an orthopedic surgeon and consider a joint replacement procedure.
This includes patients who would consider themselves too young for a replacement. Feather River Hospital surgeons use unique, advanced techniques that require smaller incisions and damage less muscle tissue. These techniques allow faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay. Because surgeons are part of a skilled care team that provides a consistently high level of treatment from pre-op through recovery, patients are able to be active again more quickly. The care team comprised of surgeons, nurses, therapists and even dieticians also focuses on the patient experience and the benefit of compassionate, patient-focused care in promoting healing.
This approach has helped the program to reach a level of excellence recognized by awards such as a 5-Star Rating in Total Hip Replacements for 10 years in a row from Healthgrades. The Joint Replacement Center of Excellence offers an innovative, proactive approach to care for total knee and total hip replacement patients utilizing pre-operative learning classes and group therapy. When recovering in the hospital, patients recover as a group — exercising, enjoying various activities, and providing support and encouragement to each other. Total joint replacement patients average a hospital stay of only one to three days.
Most patients are putting weight on their new joint later in the same day that they have their surgery. For patients who once suffered from joint pain, being able to hike, golf, play with their children or even ride a motorcycle again greatly improves their lives. The frequency of elective medical procedures varies dramatically based on geographical area, new research finds.
For instance, when compared to the state average, men in Tracy are percent more likely to undergo internal radiation for prostate cancer; women in Healdsburg are percent more likely to receive a lumpectomy without radiation for breast cancer; and women in Laguna Hills and San Clemente are percent and percent, respectively, more likely to undergo breast-reconstruction surgery following mastectomy.

In April, a review of bus receipts kept by the Nevada Division of Mental Health and Development Services revealed that the Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas, a facility for adults with serious mental illness, has sent more than 1, mentalhealth patients to other cities since July , according to The Sacramento Bee. Two hundred of the patients arrived in Los Angeles County.
The ordinance requires that patients cannot be sent anywhere other than their home without written consent. Since the revelation, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval said state officials have implemented stricter discharge policies. Home Instead Senior Care has launched an online tool to help family caregivers determine whether they are at risk of adverse health effects associated with caring for a senior loved one.
That is the compound—and complex—question the Butte County Public Health Department and three local hospitals are hoping to answer with their joint Community Health Needs Assessment. A big piece of the process is an online survey, which will be conducted through June 9. As of last Wednesday May 22 , people had responded, adding their perspectives to the feedback that assessment organizers had already received from around a dozen community organizations at three focus-group meetings.

While others may not speak of the market in such worshipful terms, it should be clear to anyone spending even a short period of time at this definitively Chico-esque event—located in the city parking lot at East Second and Wall streets— that many locals love the market.

It started a year and a half ago at the Naked Lounge coffeehouse, a downtown gathering space for artists, writers and tech lovers. In the gallery were elaborate geometrical figures laser-cut from wood, as well as interlinked metal and sandstone figures that had been fashioned entirely by using a 3-D printer.
Mitchell used the computer next to it to design a simple hexagon shape, while Layman lifted the glass top and put a flat piece of wood into the machine. The laser is reflected onto a mirror that moves around the wood on two axes, emitting a sound not unlike a pet-store tag cutter. A small flame flickered where the laser cut through the wood and a sweet, campfire-like smell rose from the machine.
When the cutting was done, Sean lifted the lid and presented the hexagon to my son, who turned it over in his hand.
