Item ID: 473384

Richard Swift's duo debuts, 'The Novelist' and 'Walking Without Effort', are fraternal twins wrestling with same Big Questions in opposite ways... one toiling in a cinderblock basement slugging typewriter coffee; one lost on the Pacific Coast Highway, looking again and again for something in a sunset that just ain't there. One's wheezing through a crusty gramophone in some Artie Shaw air-conditioned nightmare; one's gliding on the soft tape of an 8-track, fat tears welling up behind those outlandish '70s sunglasses. Taken together, they speak to Swift's wild, preternatural shapeshifting ability, an auteur's understanding of mood and place. Yet, you always know you're seeing these new places through Swift's translucent, wolven eyes. These two recordings are his 8½, both the portal and the Rosetta Stone to Swift's singular musical universe and language.

SWIFT, RICHARD - RICHARD SWIFT AS ONASIS (2CD)

This double EP is as creatively fortifying as it is unhinged & unpolished, a primal slab thrown into the fire for dancing & merriment during the chilly months while we await his second full-length.

CURRENT JOYS - VOYAGER

CURRENT JOYS - VOYAGER

Current Joys, the project of Nick Rattigan, signed to Secretly Canadian for its seventh album, 'Voyager'. The album rattles with the live-wire feeling that's thrummed through previous releases: quavering, scream-itself-hoarse vocals and self-interrogation via song. But ... read more »

 

GOSHEN ELECTRIC CO. - THE GRAY TOWER/RING THE BELL

Goshen Electric Co. happened both all at once and gradually: an electrifying culmination of Tim Showalter's nearly two decades long love affair with Jason Molina's craft, and just one half-day in the recording studio with the members of Magnolia Electric Co.

 

WINDSOR FOR THE DERBY - WE FIGHT TILL DEATH

 

GARDENS & VILLA - GARDENS & VILLA

Channel all the taut pop precisions of 90s Britpop of bands like Blur (borrowed from the 60s anyhow), & send it through an 80s synth filter both undeniably coastal & modern. It's Spoon's Kill The Moonlight lost in a daydream, but with that same hungry energy.

 

VANDERVELDE, DAVID - MOONSTATION HOUSE BAND

This captures the highlights from his two-year immersion in Jay Bennett's Clubhouse, as he refers to the studio in Chicago where he isolated himself to record this record virtually on his own, using the former Wilco multi-instrumentalist's studio. Self-taught on guitar, ... read more »
