Item ID: 325826

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 (LP).

CALLAHAN, BILL - WOKE ON A WHALEHEART

Although he's sired a dozen albums under the name of SMOG, he has laid that name to rest. Boasting the propulsive, glittering and classically pretty arrangements of Neil Michael Hagerty, this 2006 album manages to bypass the trends of the modern day while shunning retro ... read more »

 

LE BON, CATE - ROCK POOL

Four non-album tracks that spin and swirl the waters with carnival pop, synth, drone and dance, all beamed along the panelectric ray of Cate's immutable blank stare. 'Rock Pool' is a short-and-sweet-play fun of a highly ambiguous nature.

 

WAND - 1000 DAYS

WAND - 1000 DAYS

The California psych rockers recorded this 2015 full-length for Drag City. The atmosphere is quicksilver and the space acoustic. A cascade of hi-fi noises for everyone's ears. These are raucous, impassive and inevitable musical expressions. Vinyl-version.
