CDs + Vinyl:
The 4th Movement – 4th Movement [Reissue/1980] CD/LP/Cassette (Drag City)
Death’s For the Whole World To See was a revelation of early punk music from the mid- ‘70s that didn’t see release until 2009. The true sequel to Death’s then-unreleased album – channeling both the punk-inflected rock and the introspective spirituality that began with Death.
Cyrille Aimée – Cyrille Aimée Live CD (Mack Avenue)
Recorded at a typically lively and engaging performance at New York City’s (Le) Poisson Rouge in August 2017, the album finds the acclaimed vocalist bidding a fond adieu to her long-standing band and looking forward to a brand-new phase in her life and career. The August performance marked the band’s final show together, saying goodbye to this configuration of Aimée’s band.
Arp – Zebra CD/2xLP (Mexican Summer)
NY-based artist/producer/DJ Alexis Georgopoulos (aka Arp) is no newcomer to the scene. An experimentalist who never loses sight of the generosity of pop, with Zebra, the fourth Arp long-player, Georgopoulos has boldly stepped into vastly new musical territory reinventing the project’s paradigm once again, blurring the lines between electronic and acoustic, between the experimental impulse and an addictive pop sensibility.
Arstidir – Nivalis CD/2xLP (Season Of Mist)
These eclectic Icelanders have never easily fit into any stylistic drawer and hence attracted a particular long list of attempts of a musical definition that ranges from indie rock via progressive rock, indie folk, chamber folk and pop, neo-classical to minimalism. Nivalis features string work (violin & viola) from Viktor Orri Árnason (Of Monsters And Men), drums from Magnús Trygvason Eliassen (Damien Rice) and cello from Hallgrímur Jónas Jensson (Olafur Arnalds).
Jill Barber – Metaphora CD/LP (Outside Music)
Evolving over the course of many albums from folk to jazz, R&B and pop, Jill’s success is defined not by genre, but by her undeniable songwriting chops and distinctive voice. Metaphora is a continuation of her musical story that confidently tackles everything from issues of empowerment, sexual politics, the complications of love, and depression. [Limited turquoise colored vinyl pressing also available.]
Binker & Moses – Alive In The East CD/LP (Gearbox)
Binker Golding and Moses Boyd are trailblazers in the current London jazz explosion. Ten new tracks featuring a wealth of talent, including UK free jazz legend Evan Parker.
