Wolf Parade: Yulia

Bravelydone.com is hosting a new video for Wolf Parade’s “Yulia,” which is a new single from their recently released album, Expo 86. Production notes by the video’s director, Scott Coffey, are included with the video.



If you don’t care about the video, the song is still pretty good.

What I Heard This Morning/Week: The Fresh & Onlys

While I wouldn't call them the second coming of Jeffrey Lee Pierce, or even The Gun Club, the song structure and jangle of "Waterfall," newest single from The Fresh & Onlys, has that refreshing timbre and evokes The Gun Club's melodic presence and even marries the guitar work of Johnny Cash and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck. At least, I hear it. Give it a listen and tell me what you think.

Shopping For Records #37: EARTH Reissue First Recording Sessions...

Via Earsplit PR:

EARTH Announce Release Details For Reissue Of First Recording Sessions



We have been blessed with a massive offering from the gods! For the first time ever the debut recordings of drone purveyours EARTH are available in one concise, beautifully documented capsule.
A Beaurocratic Desire For Extra Capsular Extraction contains the entire 1990 Smegma Studios sessions which are the debut recordings from EARTH.

Previously available scattered via the
Extra Capsular Extractions EP and Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars CD, this essential collection contains every note from the infamous first EARTH recording sessions. All 7 tracks have been carefully remastered by Mell Dettmer. It is actually questionable what mastering if any was done on the original tracks so we entrusted the task into the very capable hands of Mell who has mastered all the other EARTH releases via Southern Lord. Bearing exclusive artwork by Simon Fowler and package design via Stephen O'Malley, the end result is a burly, mammoth and crushing audio experience that makes this collection a must have even for the diehards that own previous versions of these recordings.

EARTH was founded by Dylan Carlson circa 1989, and in its infant stages contained several different members including Slim Moon (Kill Rock Stars label), Joe Preston (Thrones, Melvins, sunn 0))), High on Fire) and even Dylan's close friend Kurt Cobain. Unbeknownst to Mr. Carlson at the time was that his seemingly simplistic experimentation with heavy music would literally spawn an entire genre, style and sound borrowing from his musical theories. This collection of the very first recordings is an important insight into understanding the birth of this sound; a foreshadowing of the thunder to come.

A Bureaucratic Desire for Extra Capsular Extraction Track Listing:

1. A Bureaucratic Desire for Revenge, part 1 (7:22)
2. A Bureaucratic Desire for Revenge, part 2 (6:38)
3. Ouroboros Is Broken (18:19)
4. Geometry of Murder (7:22)
5. German Dental Work (5:20)
6. Divine and Bright (3:02)
7. Dissolution 1 (7:11)

What I Heard This Week: Bird By Snow

A few weeks ago, I received a copy of Common Wealth, which is the fourth album from psych-folk band, Bird By Snow. Admittedly I wasn't expecting much, the natural elements that grace their album's cover indicative of indistinguishable and typically light and airy folk-based acoustic music that was likely to be overly sentimental and sensitive.

Some of what I assumed to be true (i.e. "light," "airy") was, but Bird By Snow pull together some graceful harmonies and the guitar melodies are beautifully arranged and striking. I'm happily surprised at the level of sophistication Common Wealth boasts and "Friends In The City" ably qualifies as a perfect summation of Bird By Snow's sound.



Common Wealth will be released October 27th from Gnome Life Records and it is worth your time and money.

"Friends In The City"

Single was made available through Tiny Mix Tapes.

Frankie Rose & The Outs: Candy

So, Frankie Rose is given the Carrie treatment by a room full of Goths. Her vengeance is taken via the Sissy Spacek stare but, evidently, there wasn't enough of a budget to visually carry out any sort of graphic or horrifying consequences. So, the Goths yell and fall to the ground, almost as if the second single from Frankie Rose & The Outs, "Candy," was enough to cause them pain. I'm sure that's not the case as it is one of the best songs on the album, but there's little evidence of what catastrophic happenings are sending the bullying Goths into torment. Some of them are holding their ears; just saying.



Their self-titled debut was delivered Tuesday from Slumberland and the video was directed by Vice Cooler (Hawnay Troof, XBXRX).

What I Heard/Saw This Week: U.S. Christmas

Run Thick In The Night is definitely a contender for best album artwork. Information regarding the new album from U.S. Christmas is below.



Via Earsplit PR:

Psychedelic, high-volume blues rock ensemble U.S. CHRISTMAS will release their long-anticipated fifth full-length, Run Thick In The Night, via Neurot Recordings on September 20, 2010. The disc was recorded by Sanford Parker at Fahrenheit Studio in Johnson City, Tennessee, mixed by Parker and USX members Nate Hall, Matt Johnson and Josh Holt at Semaphore Studios in Chicago, IL and mastered by Collin Jordan.

Hailing from the Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee, U.S. CHRISTMAS create a kaleidoscopic brand of sound that evades easy classification. Founded in Marion, North Carolina in the summer of 2002, the band played rough biker bars, art spaces, and house shows all over the southeast dirt circuit for years, self-releasing albums in rough CDR format. Scott Kelly of Neurosis heard the band’s third record,
Salt The Wound (released in Russia by the label RAIG) through his show on Combat Music Radio/KMBT, which inevitably lead to the release of the band’s fourth album Eat The Low Dogs on Neurot Recordings.

USX now approaches a decade of playing, recording, and evolving, and continues to blur the boundaries of heavy music with earsplitting rock that is by turns jangly, crushing, dark and truly eclectic. Said Hall of the upcoming release:
"This record followed some difficult times for many of us, and I think you can hear that in RTITN. It is not as lyrically dark as ETLD, however it is a continuation of those elements. Run Thick In The Night is rooted in something outside of us, but is driven by a clear and persistent vision. It was necessary for USX to make this album, and it was something I absolutely had to do. I can't really explain it any better than to simply say that it is a very personal, spiritual album for me. ...When I hear the music now I see distinct real places that have, over time, woven into my imagination and become surreal.

"We recorded the entire 13-song album in one weekend in Tennessee, with Sanford Parker at the helm," he continues. "Our friend Travis Kammeyer helped out a lot with studio time and he added some really cool Hammond organ sounds. Minsk drummer Tony Wyioming also played hand drums on a few tracks. Our friend from North Carolina, Hush, did the original artwork, which I think really fits the mood perfectly. Josh Graham from Neurosis/A Storm Of Light did the layout work for us, and it was the perfect finishing touch. I am really proud of RTITN, and really proud of everyone in USX."

Matt Johnson – Synthesizers, Guitars, Sounds

Shopping For Records #36: May's bounty...

2010 hasn't, for the most part, been the best year in terms of financial nonchalance. It would be safe to say that, if not for the generosity of record labels and PR reps, I'd have nothing to review and Letters From A Tapehead would probably shrink to irrelevance and ultimately disappear.

But, I did manage to score a couple opportunities this year to hit the record stores, and though I sort of lagged as far as detailing my purchases, many of them have been 2010 albums that I've been meaning to discuss.

So, my first record store trip happened in May as I was armed with some gift certificates.

Chester County Book & Music Company, West Chester, PA:

Butthole Surfers
Hairway To Steven
Latino Bugger Veil
Originally Released: 4.11.88 (on Touch & Go)

Michael Azerrad's Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground, 1981-1991 is still, for me, music literature's wish list for pre-Alternative independents and Hairway To Steven was one of the book's points of discussion. I found it used for $2.99 and, for all its absurdity and callous insanity, I would've paid more.



Melvins
26 Songs
Ipecac Recordings
Released: 3.11.03

This is a compilation/reissue of some very early Melvins recordings from 1986 entitled 10 Songs, along with some outtakes and demos lifted directly from vinyl. It's actually very cool to listen to the second half of the album, the light static of the LP very crisp against the Melvins' sludgy guitar scrawl. Also used.



R.E.M.
Document
I.R.S.
Released: 9.1.87

This year's reissue of Fables of the Reconstruction inspired me to seek out and add more R.E.M. to my record collection. Document would more than constitute mandatory listening in terms of R.E.M.'s output, "The One I Love" and "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" having been breakthrough hits for the band. I find Michael Stipe's vocals incredibly forced to a flat squeak in many songs on this album, most notably their cover of Wire's "Strange," but you can't beat the timbre on "The One I Love"'s opening riff. It's iconic at this point and the most memorable moment on the album.


REM The One I Love
Uploaded by Celtiemama. - Music videos, artist interviews, concerts and more.

Iggy & The Stooges
Raw Power (Legacy Edition)
Sony/Legacy
Originally Released: 2.73
Reissued: 4.10.10

If it's not THE greatest rock album of all time, Iggy & The Stooges' Raw Power certainly warrants placement in the top ten, (though I would put it below Funhouse). Sony's Legacy imprint revived the David Bowie mix of the album after Iggy Pop's muddied speaker-bursting treatment in the late 90s, this time suitably mastered for a digital format. My first exposure to Raw Power was via Pop's mix and hearing the Legacy Edition was tantamount to culture shock. It really is like listening to a whole new album, though I can't quite determine if it's better. I'll say, without having heard the original analog recording, though, that this is probably the truest version.

I didn't have the scratch to splurge on the 3-disc version with the DVD, so the two-disc Legacy Edition with the Georgia Peaches live album had to be good enough. And, honestly, it is. The 1973 concert inclusion is truly entertaining, especially when you overhear the crowd comment on Pop's disposition with comments like "I don't think he likes us very much," or "He certainly expends a lot of energy!" And, of course, he eggs on some of the crowd and then continues to rock n' roll, cocky motherfucker with a "Cock In (His) Pocket."



The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night
Jagjaguwar
Released: 3.9.10

Liars
Sisterworld
Mute
Released: 3.9.10

Two of the year's best albums in my opinion.

The Besnard Lakes' ...Are The Roaring Night is dominated by swelling crescendos and pensive gaps of radiating atmosphere. "Albatross" is easily one of 2010's best singles, a light and airy track with bass rhythm peddling jaggedly through its ambience. It just sounded so heartfelt the first time I heard it, and this unfeigned sensitivity continues as you get through ...Are The Roaring Night; some exceptional moments propagated by a desire to leave the physical plain for another more beautifully isolated.



Sisterworld, though, is claustrophobic and paranoid; the Liars' mocking ode to Los Angeles emulative of Brett Easton Ellis' bored complacency and Travis Bickle's urban plague. "Scarecrows on a Killer Slant" perfectly illustrates their intent, the ease at which singer Angus Andrew questions ("Why'd you shoot the man with the gun?") and then answers ("'Cos he bothered you!") a perfect conveyance of apathy as a byproduct of privilege.

Over The Hill: A Few Words About Black Sabbath's Black Sabbath

My favorite recorded 14 minutes/16 seconds can be found at the end of Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut, the three-song blues assault known as “A Bit Of Finger/Sleeping Village/Warning.” I demand a complete absence of outside stimuli when immersed in its goings on, my attention undivided as the Bill Ward/Geezer Butler juggernaut craft one of the best rhythm sections in rock history. Bold statement? Probably, but to me there are few moments on any record that hold up throughout decades of “bigger and badder,” still managing to boast this level of strength, determination and blistering evil. I’m certainly not overlooking Tony Iommi’s spider-ing guitar solos or Ozzy’s eerie delivery, certainly both are at the forefront as far as the Sabbath persona and the occult-ish lean they embodied so well, but Ward and Butler champion my attention with every listen.


I sometimes feel as though I’d been born in the wrong era, especially when confronted by Sabbath’s debut and the idea of hearing this in 1970. “Black Sabbath,” with its clinging bells and pouring rain, inspires in me visions of frantic parents, pitching fits of protest and bonfires melting black platters in attempt to boil the potential Lucifer-mind meld out of any realm of possibility.

What I’ve always found rather fascinating about the quote unquote Satan bands is that they seem to rail against violence and war. “Wicked World” basically lambastes government for allowing its people to starve or die of disease when progress has allowed for the seemingly worthless advantage of landing on the moon. Sabbath utilize darkness, but never at the expense of their humanity, which is where I think they remain somewhat misunderstood. And, honestly, you don’t get more Christian than “N.I.B.” a sympathetic nod to the devil himself that's thoughtful enough to consider Lucifer's feelings for a change.

Black Sabbath's debut turned forty this year and it remains at a creative and transcendent height that few bands have been able to reach let alone surpass.

God bless you, Ozzy Osbourne.

What I Heard This Morning: Moondoggies & The Intelligence...

Moondoggies — “It’s A Shame, It’s A Pity”



Tidelands, the newest album from Moondoggies, will be released on October 12th through the Hardly Art label. "It's A Shame, It's A Pity" is a pretty laid back and lightly textured rock song, nicely harmonized and rhythmically sound. Worth the couple minutes:

"It's A Shame"

If you like what you hear, below is some information regarding Tidelands and touring.

Via Hardly Art:

“It’s a Shame, It’s a Pity” serves as a perfect introduction to Tidelands, the new Moondoggies record coming out October 12th. Embracing more deliberate songwriting and band dynamics, “It’s a Shame, It’s a Pity” is a stomping but solemn ode, marked by the somber and pensive tones found throughout Tidelands. While the band’s 2008 debut Don’t Be A Stranger won the band fans for it’s easygoing mood, Tidelands catches the Moondoggies at a more contemplative and mature moment. Carried over from the first record, however, are the harmonies, catchy hooks, and stellar musicianship that fans have come to expect.

Tidelands is now available for pre-order at the Hardly Art website, and we will be sending out a bonus Moondoggies cassette with preorders while supplies last. This limited edition tape features their 2009 Record Store Day EP on one side and their 2010 You’ll Find No Answers Here Tour EP on the other, and includes a free download of both releases.

Shopping For Records #35: The King Of Fuh...

Ever heard of a guy named, Stephen Friedland? If you have, then you know the story behind Brute Force, which was the name Friedland used to record his 1967 album, I, Brute Force — Confections Of Love.

This album is being reissued in October by Bar-None Records, having been out of print for over forty years. I’ve never heard the album, but it is a highly regarded, apparently underrated and obviously obscure thanks to its lack of circulation.

The big point of interest with the album, though, is “The King Of Fuh,” which is being included in the I, Brute Force reissue as a bonus track. “The King Of Fuh” caught the attention of John Lennon and George Harrison, both of whom issued the song as a single in 1969 via Apple Records. Capitol and EMI refused to distribute the single thanks to Frieland’s tale of the “Fuh King,” so 2,000 copies were released independently by Apple as “Apple 8.” Needless to say, the track is obscure, but I did find a YouTube clip of the single and its B-side “Nobody Knows.”



“The King Of Fuh” is also being released as part of Apple Records’ first compilation album, Come And Get It: The Best of Apple Records, which will see the light of day on October 25th.

Brute Force has a blog if you’re interested in him, his music, or you want any additional information on “The King Of Fuh” and the reissue.

Shopping For Records #32: John Lennon Reissues (Revisited)



In late June, I received a press release regarding the John Lennon reissues/compilations that were being released in honor of what would've been his 70th birthday. This time, there are pictures. Read below for more information.

Via EMI Press Release:

Sweeping Catalogue Initiative Overseen by Yoko Ono and EMI
Music Commemorates Lennon's 70th Birthday


London, England ­ September 1, 2010 ­ EMI Music unveils today the complete tracklists and cover art for a broad selection of remastered John Lennon albums and new collections to be released on CD and digitally on 4 October (5 October in North America).
