Hear Masahiro Takahashis sleepytime love song Toyama Park -
Jul 24, 2014 12:54pm | Chart Attack

Retreat from Tokyo/Montreal's Masahiro Takahashi is a record of collages within a collage of glitchy glockenspiel-core, recorded over 12 years from 2001 to 2013. It's being re-released by Jeunesse Cosmique, and amongst DNTL-coloured tracks like "anti-control --," "Toyama Park -" stands out as a particularly kismetic track, combining the sour bedroom guitarist vibes of Alex G with the anything goes electro of Maltine Records's grab bag.

Buy Masahiro Takahashi's new album Retreat / on Bandcamp.

Song : Dralms : Divisions Of Labour
Jul 24, 2014 12:35pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

“Divisions Of Labour” is the new song from Vancouver quartet Dralms off their debut 7″ available on September 2nd on Fat Possum. The project is led by Christopher Smith featuring collaborators Shaunn Thomas Watt, Will Kendrick, and Peter Carruthers. The song can only be describe as boiling with dark pain slowly building throughout the song that stops just short from a full on explosion. It mixes spacey electronics layered with brooding post-rock elements. Listen below.

Gerry Read remixes every track on Lootpacks classic LP Soundpieces: Da Antidote
Jul 24, 2014 12:22pm | Fact Magazine

One remix would be intriguing enough, but Gerry Read has gone and dissected the entirety of Lootpack‘s classic debut album.

Some of you no doubt remember when Soundpieces: Da Antidote dropped back in 1999 on the Stones Throw imprint. For many listeners it was an introduction to the virtuoso production talent of Californian beatmaker Madlib, he took care of the production on the entire record, and shared mic with rapper Wildchild.

Now Gerry Read has taken each track from the classic LP and repurposed it to fit his needs, dissolving Madlib’s loose, jazzy rhythms and replacing them with 4/4 pulses and slithering house basslines. It’s an ambitious project, certainly, but one that’s well worth a listen. Just remember to grab a hold of the original record if you haven’t already – it’s essential stuff.

Light in the Attic reveals reissue of mysterious crooner Lewiss second album Romantic Times
Jul 24, 2014 12:21pm | Fact Magazine

The story of shadowy Canadian outsider Lewis is slowly becoming clearer.

We still don’t know much, but when his second album – Romantic Times – was discovered by the Light in the Attic crew, they at least found a surname – the ‘new’ record is credited to one Lewis Baloue. Those of you with a keen eye might have noticed that a super rare copy of the album – which previously had no Google fingerprint at all – appeared on eBay this weekend (bidding is currently at $1,750). Well this forced Light in the Attic’s hand, and they fast tracked the announcement of its reissue.

You can now pre-order the record (which is slated for release on November 18) on vinyl and CD, and anyone who does gets an instant download, which is rather generous. We can reveal that we’ve already heard the record and it’s a scorcher – jam packed with the kind of eerie, Lynchian ballads that made Romantic Times‘ predecessor so alluring.

Whether more records are found, or the identity of the elusive Lewis Baloue is ever discovered (we’re loving the rumors that he’s some kind of high-class con man) remains to be seen, but Canada’s answer to Jandek is a curiosity we’re totally on board with.

Listen: Gap Dream Strong Love

Gap Dream – Photo by Steele O’ Neal

Gabe Fulvimar, aka Gap Dream, besides living at Burger Records HQ and having one of the greatest stories ever about meeting Michael Stipe, is also pretty good at making swoon-worthy Ableton synth-blankets, most recently on his sophomore LP, Shine Your Light.

Today he’s back in our radar with news of a split 7-inch with San Francisco’s Part Time that’ll be available on their joint tour this summer. Strong Love is like a salty, late-night dance on the beach, even though their tour will probably include less sand and more bar grime. Listen to the track and check out those tour dates below.

Tour Dates For Gap Dream (all w/Part Time):
08/23 – San Francisco, CA – Brick and Mortar Music Hall
08/25 – Los Angeles, CA – Club Los Globos
08/26 – Tucson, AZ – Hotel Congress
08/27 – El Paso, TX – Monarch
08/28 – Austin, TX – Hotel Vegas
08/29 – Houston, TX – Walters
08/30 – New Orleans, LA – Circle Bar
08/31 – Atlanta, GA – The Earl
09/01 – Durham, NC – Duke University Coffeehouse
09/02 – Washington, DC – Comet Ping Pong
09/03 – Philadelphia, PA – Johnny Brendas

Song : The Golden Filter : Heady Filthy
Jul 24, 2014 12:12pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

New York duo The Golden Filter recently released a three volume collection called Unselected Works via Londons The Vinyl Factory (purchase here). As the title indicates, they are comprised of songs that did not fit onto their previous efforts. One of the songs is “Heady Filthy” which what we would imagine the time between night and right before the sun starts to break over the horizon would sound like. Dark with flickers of light. Listen below.

How To Dress Well Let U Know
Jul 24, 2014 12:12pm | StereoGum

How To Dress Well just released the devastating “What Is This Heart?”, one of the year’s best. But according to Tom Krell, one of the songs that didn’t make it onto the album is, in some ways, the key to the album. That song is the fragile piano ballad “Let U Know,” a “partial cover” of a song by oFF Love, a friend of Krell. Of the song, Krell writes, “In singing ’Let U Know,’ I discovered the title of my album and a lot of its meaning — I needed this song to be heard by people, even though I couldn’t find a place for it on the album proper.” Listen to it below.


Newly Discovered Second LP From Mystery 80s Artist Lewis Being Released
Jul 24, 2014 12:09pm | StereoGum

The story behind the reissue of Lewis’ 1983 album L’Amour adds to its mysterious appeal: A record collector discovers a beautiful and strange album from an enigmatic Canadian performer and no one has heard it before and no one can shed much light on who Lewis was (or is). L’Amour should have been a one-off, an oddity in the internet age. But another LP has surfaced on eBay and, right now, is going for over $1,700. Romantic Times is the 1985 followup to L’Amour and reveals a few more tantalizing clues about the artist behind the music. It was released under the name Lewis Baloue, which could possibly be his real name. It was recorded by Dan Lowe at Calgary’s Thunder Road studios, though when asked he said he “remembered little about the session other than that Lewis seemed to be ’under the influence.’” There are only two known copies in existence: the one that is on eBay right now was found in the same Calgary store warehouse that the first one was and the one that Light In The Attic is remastering the release from was discovered by Vancouver record collector Kevin “Sipreano” Howes. The album is unmistakably the work of the man who penned L’Amour — the same chiseled jawline graces the cover of Romantic Times and the music has the same haunting, dreamlike quality. As with the first album, the label is promising to pay out royalties to anyone tha...

Watch: The Gaslight Anthems video for Get Hurt
Jul 24, 2014 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

On August 19th, New Jersey rockers The Gaslight Anthem are releasing their new album, Get Hurt, via Island Records. After revealing the title track as one of the LP’s singles earlier this month, the band have let loose its accompanying video.

The clip follows The Gaslight Anthem as they perform in a dimly lit bar. But they’re not entertaining just any old rowdy crowd; instead, audience members bust out elaborate, almost contortionist-style moves, as though under a spell. One woman in particular gets a little crazy with some feathers. Watch it below.

For more of Get Hurt the album, check out “Rollin’ and Tumblin'”.

Get Hurt Tracklist:
01. Stay Vicious
02. 1,000 Years
03. Get Hurt
04. Stray Paper
05. Helter Skeleton
06. Underneath the Ground
07. Rollin and Tumblin

09. Selected Poems
10. Aint That a Shame
11. Break Your Heart
