Eric Copeland ‎– Al Anon

$10.99

Al Anon concludes Eric Copeland’s two part album entitled Alien In A Garbage Dump (available on CD from Paw Tracks). Where the first half offered a discombobulated collection of radio cross-signaling, here the alien finds its groove for a minute and tidies up the frequencies. There is still something outsiderish here, but with more of an effort to get inside, to play by the rules even? Or maybe the motivation is to sneak something subversive into the norms’ hideout? 

Since Al Anon was recorded at the same time as two Black Dice albums, there are obvious parallels in the results; an uncompromised sonic landscape. But outside the group setting, Copeland has found places one can only find alone: small inner dialogues and isolated mind caves where an idea may only last a moment. He captures and tweaks these ideas into fragments of many memories; a déjà vu record déjà vu record. Funny characters drop in and out. Songs come and go. Al Anonproves to be a strangely curated time capsule of OUR time right NOW; music where birds beat-box with car-stereo subwoofers and the neighbors’ Espanol sings on top the Sabbath siren. With all this going on, Copeland sometimes disappears into the anonymity, playing a ‘behind-the-scenes’ role, pushing cords and pulling buttons, laughing because the batteries are dying. Here the familiar becomes mysterious and the unknown feels normal and we can listen to this one all day trying to make those distinctions.

Edition of 500 copies with jaw-droppingly amazing black and white collage artwork by Copeland, screenprinted by VG Kids.

5 sealed copies of the original Hi-Ball Records pressing (HBLP-0996) of Evergreeen. Produced by James Murphy. Discogs sellers be damned

"Formed from the ashes of Louisville legends Cinderblock in the early 90s and boasting a revolving line-up that would make Spinal Tap blush, Evergreen solidified in 1993 when Britt Walford (Slint, The Breeders, The For Carnation) joined on drums. A tight mix of percussive guitars, strolling, funky bass and relentlessly catchy drum beats escalated the drunken vocal sways of Sean McLoughlin to immeasurable heights. Equally inspired by Fugazi, Television and The Stooges, Evergreen was a breath of fresh air that only Louisville folks were really ready to breathe. While the rest of the world was too busy going ape shit over increasingly soulless faux-jazz, Evergreen were throwing down party-punk jams to tear the roof down and/or get them arrested for public indecency and disturbing the peace (but that's another story for another time). Recorded in brilliant stereophonic mid-fi by James Murphy (of the DFA), this album seemed like a throwback in 1995. Oddly, it now feels more at home soaring above the increasingly soulless faux-garage rock revival. When all is said and done and you are left with nothing but the music to tell the story, it's damned near impossible to tell when this record was made and it's even harder to care. It's truly a timeless classic that has always deserved more attention than it has gotten." (text via Evergreen bandcamp)

Factory Floor unfold their full length live score to Fritz Lang’s seminal, silent 1920s sci-fi ‘Metropolis’, which they previously performed live at the Science Museum’s IMAX in April 2017, coinciding with the film’s 90th anniversary of release. 

With over 150 minutes of the film to soundtrack, Gabe Gurnsey and Nik Colk Void a.k.a. Factory Floor cover a lot of bases, from tense greyscale ambient to needling electro and pulsating techno and industrial minimalism, often in the same track, which scale from tense, 3 minutes themes, and up to a 20 minute-long tract of woozy slow electro.

Sandro Perri - Spaced Out

$9.75

Tracklist:
1. Love & Light (Larry Gus - Panamix) 
2. Wolfman (Le Révélateur - Sky Mix) 
3. How Will I? (Imugem Orihasam - Outlook Mix) 

Credits:

Release Info: 
(text via Constellation Records) While Sandro Perri's acclaimed and meticulously constructed album 
Impossible Spaceswas a decidedly avant-rock affair conjured from guitar, bass, drums, synth and voice (with flourishes of woodwinds and brass), longtime fans of Perri will also be familiar with his deep roots in electronic music, chiefly via his Polmo Polpo project from the early 2000s. So it was natural for him to tap friends and peers for remixes of the Impossible Spaces material. This yielded an embarrassment of remix riches, spread across a series of three EPs, of which Spaced Out is the third and final installment (following 2012 releases on the DFA and Phonica labels). 

Spaced Out kicks off with what is probably the closest thing to a banger in the entire batch of remix material, courtesy of Larry Gus (DFA, Lefse), whose treatment of "Love & Light" employs over 500 samples extracted from the song's stems. The result is an intricate, dense, exuberantly satisfying groove-based track that chops and channels the woozy rhythmic complexity and mellifluous vocal of the original. This is followed by the pulsing ambient maximalism of Le Révélateur (Root Strata), the current alter-ego of Roger Tellier-Craig (Fly Pan Am, Pas Chic Chic), who reworks "Wolfman" as a beautifully building swarm of layered loops and long delays – an homage of sorts to Perri's own Polmo Polpo sound palette. The EP's B-Side features an extended, non-linear re-interpretation of "How Will I?" by Japanese producer Imugem Orihasam(Fragil) that extrapolates a sweet and loose abstract-House vibe from the original, bringing the highly detailed swing of the song's live drum tracks to the fore, allowing Perri's vocal to unfurl against a minimal, skittering, plunderphonic arrangement. 

We're thrilled to wrap up these Impossible Spaces remixes in a final installment; Spaced Out provides an intense, diverse and richly detailed 22-minute journey that wildly re-imagines the original album across three distinct pieces, each of which remains true to Perri's core aesthetics in uniquely additive fashion.
