Breaking through the dirt and shooting upward into our atmosphere is a new variety of exotic BONNIE PRINCE BILLY plant. Stronger. Stinkier. It blooms in low light and cold but thrives in the sun as well, showing enticing spots and eating small creatures as they wander into its jaws. Though Beware shares spit with its immediate predecessor, Lie Down in the Light, its reach is longer, its arches more grandiose. Where fiddle and steel contribute their rustic timbre alongside guitars and voices, a thickening thud of low tone rolls beneath, giving the record a bottom that's fun to watch bounce in new clothes. This intensifies the air and heralds Beware as Bonnie most ambidextrous record to date-even more so than The Letting Go. A listen or two through and you too may conclude that this could also be the great Bonnie 'Prince' Billy contempo-country record-though, as always, the 'Prince' goes his own special way, even when climbing the charts with brawny arms and classic titles like "I Don't Belong to Anyone," "You Can't Hurt Me Now," and "I Am Goodbye." Received A Best New Music Tag In Pitchfork.

Also available: BEWARE (CD).

HANSON, CORY - THE UNBORN CAPITALIST FROM LIMBO

The debut solo-LP by Wand frontman Cory Hanson. This is the kind of delicate psych folk hinted at on Wand's '1000 Days'. The music features gorgeous string arrangements by Heather Lockie.

 

HOWLING HEX - EARTH JUNK

All-new, all-different record. An electric country-pop hoedown for small ensemble (featuring circus organ), as minimal & repetitive as all rock & roll while creating a bit of curiosity and perplexity, Howling Hex are convinced that they owe the audience something of ... read more »

 

CANAVARRO, NUNO - PLUX QUBA

BACK IN PRINT on the LP-format, this is a reissue of an interesting 1988 work by the highly regarded Portuguese composer. The music is simple, gentle, melodic and yet completely alien. There are some similarities to Robert Ashley's later work, but even that is deceiving.

 

MONOTONIX - NOT YET

Recorded by Steve Albini, "Not Yet" is the second Monotonix full-length album, focusing the band's energy like a beam, searing away everything extraneous, leaving only the essentials. Monotonix are kicking it with pure, slamming rawness from start to finish on ... read more »

 

SEGALL, TY - SLEEPER

Vinyl version. 'Sleeper' is Ty-fi, for sure. It's a hard-knock existence, but there's plenty tenderness to try, and the trip is crafted especially to fit in your ears and sail down the canals deep into your skull.

 

CAVE - THREACE

CAVE are known for playing with rolling funk minimalism. 'Threace' finds them inhabiting their cut-up aesthetic with tremendous ease and fewer reference points than before. They access new depths of meditative stasis and then torpedo the dream and turn on a dime to ride the ... read more »
