While spending time trying to conquer the audio of live-stream at home performances, I got better acquainted with my friend Adam McDaniel, an engineer and producer in Asheville, NC. Adam and I had known each other for years. When the band was a bit smaller I'd often rent his studio, Drop of Sun, for pre-recording / pre tour rehearsals. Summer 2020 was tough for many reasons. But Adam and his wife Emily opened their home to me and made it a safe space to create and let go. I had an idea to record some covers and bring some of the band into the mix, or add other players. I wanted to record 80's songs that I'd overheard walking the aisles at the grocery store, and I needed to laugh and have fun and be a little less serious about the recording process in general. I thought about completely changing some of the songs and turning them inside out. I'd heard "Gloria" by Laura Branigan for the first time at a family Christmas gathering and I was amazed at all the aunts who got up to dance. I imagined them all dancing and laughing in slow motion, and that's when I got the idea to slow the entire song down and try it out in this way. I felt that "Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats could be reinterpreted to be about this time of quarantine and the fear of being around anyone or having too much fun. It made me wonder, is it safe to laugh or dance or be free of it all for just a moment? I know it's not really in my history to do something unintentional or just for the hell of it but my connection to these songs is pretty straightforward, I just wanted to have a little fun and be a little more spontaneous, and I think I needed to remember that I could!

Com Truise - Persuasion System

Com Truise - Persuasion System

Regular price $ 22.00
/
For nearly a decade the story of Com Truise has relied on science fiction and abstract fact. Seth Haley's singular style of melodic beat music subsists as hazy machinist nostalgia, a mainframe downloaded cosmology. Yet with each release, alongside sonic refinement, comes an increasingly visible vapor trail to Haley's own ontology. His long-awaited 2017 LP Iteration brought to completion a conceptual space saga while also reflecting seismic life changes for the producer and designer. With mini-LP Persuasion System, Haley leaves the past narrative behind, settling into a new period marked by change - on this planet, in the present - putting forth his most grounded and visceral work to date. The project began as an experiment. Haley switched digital audio workstations, rebuilt his palette of sounds, and tasked himself with simply trying it out. The exercise freed him of expectations and permitted a process that echoed the tones of more immediate external environments. A gravity had seeped in; resulting material shifts between bleakness and sublime suspense, awe at the expanse of existing, in looking back and letting go. "It's a sort of sad smile and a wave goodbye but at the same time hello, a 'welcome to your life' moment," Haley says. Take the storm pattern sequence from "Gaussian" to "Ultrafiche of You": a queasy, contemplative vignette rests on a single soft-synth cloud before the latter's percussion ripples across the sky. With trademark stutters and swells, the composition conjures the sensation of searching in the afterglow. "It's a love song, and I don't write many of those." That duality - melancholy + optimism, then + now - permeates this widescreen collection. "Existence Schematic" takes flight at night, "looking down at the landscape," explains Haley, "seeing the lights in a schematic sort of way, wondering who or what is looking back up at me wondering the same things I am, the impact of a single existence, the end, the beginning, where it's gone and going." These are observations from this existential Persuasion System, and Haley hopes the music yields more, for others, that listeners may search for their own tension and release.

Guilty Simpson & Dixon Hill - Actus Reus

Guilty Simpson & Dixon Hill - Actus Reus

Regular price $ 26.00
/
'The sonic template of this album came from Dixon Hill's lifetime of crate digging, parsing 100's of hours of courtroom audio, and carefully arranged instrumentation. The lyrics are given life in the mind, pen, and voice of a legendary Detroit rap king. Guilty Simpson and Dixon Hill bring an unmatched work ethic to their music, resulting in a tightly packed meta-hardcore rap opus. The record also features a dream collaboration with Lil' Fame of MOP and Kool G Rap. The LP includes the entire 'Actus Reus' project on side A, and all instrumentals on side B. Dixon Hill had spent years prior honing his craft as multiinstrumentalist and avid record collector. Dixon Hill creates beats with grit and heart, resulting in dense musical textures evoking his idols, Pete Rock, Large Professor and Dilla. Guilty Simpson, A stalwart of the Detroit underground Hip-Hop scene, Guilty Simpson has lent his voice to classic productions from the likes of J Dilla, Madlib, and Apollo Brown. His candor and lyrical dexterity are well known and respected. Guilty's lyrics span from grief stricken lamentations to vitriolic attacks tightly packed into 7 bump-worthy tracks on 'Actus Reus'. Detroit's native son is a true threat on the mic, and he makes it clear on this project.

KAYTRANADA - 99.9%

KAYTRANADA - 99.9%

Regular price $ 40.00
/
Vinyl LP pressing. Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, 23 year-old Canadian artist KAYTRANADA is widely regarded as one of the most important new producers in the musical landscape today. Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. As he explains, "after he showed me the basics, from that day on I couldn't stop making beats," pumping out a beat a day for the next couple of years and soon after self-releasing a series of EPs and beat tapes that quickly began to expand his reach. Single releases like "Drive Me Crazy" with Vic Mensa and "Leave Me Alone" with Shay Lia soon spread his name like wildfire and gained listens reaching far into the millions. In addition to that he's produced for artists such as Mobb Deep, Kali Uchis, Freddie Gibbs, The Internet, & Talib Kweli and remixed the likes of Disclosure, Pharrell, Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, and others. KAYTRANADA soon cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to J Dilla's, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines. Last year he was tapped by the legendary Rick Rubin who has acted as a mentor, eventually signing him to a publishing relationship. 99.9% will be KAYTRANADA's first debut album on XL Recordings. The 15-track album includes guest vocals from Anderson.Paak, AlunaGeorge, BADBADNOTGOOD, Craig David, Syd, Little Dragon, Goldlink and more.

Khruangbin - Mordechai Remixes [PRE-ORDER]

Khruangbin - Mordechai Remixes [PRE-ORDER]

Regular price $ 28.00
/
Release Date: 10/29/2021

"The dancer wants to get in a groove and stay there until he has exhausted his invention or his body. The timescale and momentum of any physical activity is vastly different from the attention span of listening."

Albert Goldman "A good remix is when the remixer's sonic fingerprint is present, without sounding forced. It should feel like it's own story, with at least some of the same characters as the original." Khruangbin The art of the remix has been around for several decades, from the fervid imaginations of JA pioneers like Coxsone Dodd, Duke Reid or King Tubby to the disco enthusiasts of New York, such as Tom Moulton, who bequeathed us the modern iteration of the remix and provided a template from which most remixers still work. Moulton's first commercial remix, a reworking of BT Express' appropriately-named 'Do It 'Till You're Satisfied', which stretched it from three minutes to a luxurious five, assisted the band in securing it's first Billboard R&B Number One, as well as providing a pathway for remixers like Walter Gibbons, Larry Levan, Richie Rivera and Tee Scott, to completely reinvent the concept of a remix (and in some instances, deconstructing the idea of what comprised a song). It has subsequently been used as a marketing tool, a dancefloor-devastator, a gimmick (both cheap and expensive) or even as a way of reaching a different audience (think Tori Amos' 'Professional Widow'). Khruangbin are no slouches when it comes to the remix themselves. They've been reworked before, in 2016, with the highly collectible EP on Boogiefuturo. But this time, they're taking it a step further with an album dedicated to the art. Entering the tight-knit world of a Khruangbin song can be a little daunting. They have created this entire universe in which the trio seem to function telepathically in the way the music is composed, arranged and played. To mess with their delicate eco-system can invoke feelings similar to that of an unwanted guest crashing a good-time party. "We write our music to be interpreted; this is another wonderful interpretation of the music," reassure Khruangbin. "There is something very vulnerable about letting others work on your music. But through the correspondence with the different artists, we gained a bigger connection to the songs themselves." The choice of remixers for this album is neither arbitrary nor accidental. They're not names picked randomly out of a hat or chosen via a throw of the dice. All have some connection to the band, sometimes personal friendships, musical connections, or simply mutual musical appreciation. Harvey Sutherland and Ginger Roots have both toured with the band, Kadhja Bonet and Ron Trent had their own mutual fan club going on, Knxwledge sampled 'White Gloves' on a recent mixtape, Natasha Diggs and Soul Clap's Eli's are recent buddy-ups, Quantic is a mutual friend of Bonobo (crucial in the KB origin story), while I've known Laura for number of years; plus she is also godmother to one of Felix Dickinson's kids. Doesn't get much more intimate than that, right? Some of these remixes were specifically made so you can dance your ass off while getting down to the Khruangbin sound, while some might better be appreciated horizontally with headphones on, wearing fashionably loose clothes. The choice is yours. But all were made with love and respect for Khruangbin. "A good remix deconstructs, recontextualizes, or simply extends a good time," say the band. Amen and out. Bill Brewster

Mac Miller - Circles (Clear Vinyl + Poster)

Mac Miller - Circles (Clear Vinyl + Poster)

Regular price $ 40.00
/

Double clear vinyl LP pressing with 12-panel poster-folder.

Circles is the sixth and final studio album by Mac Miller. Conceived as a sister album to 2018's full length Swimming, the album was completed with the assistance of Jon Brion, with whom Miller worked on Swimming and had been working together on Circles at the time of his passing. While sonically distinctly different than it's predecessor, Circles features many of the hallmarks for which Swimming was critically-acclaimed upon it's release - Miller further realizing his singing voice in addition to rapping, live instrumentation and earnest, confessional lyrical content. Listeners will hear shades of some of the album's influences in it's songs, from the T-Rex guitar tone of "Surf" to the Plastic Ono Band-era John Lennon feel of it's production and the inspired cover of Arthur Lee's 1972 single "Everybody's Gotta Live." It's a momentous final entry into the discography of an artist that remains at the center of reimagining the limits of rap.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - IC-01 HANOI

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - IC-01 HANOI

Regular price $ 24.00
/
While recording Unknown Mortal Orchestra's latest release, Sex & Food, Ruban Nielson, his longtime collaborator Jacob Portrait and his brother Kody Nielson, found themselves in the Vietnamese city of Hanoi playing and recording with local musicians at Phu Sa Studios. The studio, normally used for traditional Vietnamese music, found the band jamming on sessions dubbed IC-01 Hanoi: exploring the outer edges of the band's influences in jazz, fusion and the avant-garde. The musicians, along with Ruban and Kody's father, a jazz musician in his own right, helped lay down the unique textures heard throughout Hanoi. At it's core it's a record of exploration, finding it's closest antecedent in Miles Davis' experimental On The Corner - itself a record full of nods toward avant-garde composers and jazz outsiders alike. Hanoi finds Ruban amplifying and stretching out on lead guitar, with a blown-out and wandering fuzz tone that slinks throughout the sessions. Kody and Jacob match Ruban's melodic diversions with aplomb, mining their talents to finding as easy a role in the fusion of funk as they do in the more ambient and abstract tangents.

Yaeji - What We Drew [BLUE VINYL]

Regular price $ 32.00

Limited blue colored vinyl LP pressing. Yaeji's What We Drew is titled intentionally; the project is as much indebted to her own singular creative vision as it is to her network of close-knit collaborators and friends, a team she's described as a 'family business.' What We Drew is Yaeji's first full-length release, and entirely self-produced, but she's careful to classify it as a mixtape, which belies the way that these songs came together. 'Each track is almost like a snippet of my life, a look into my diary or something, where it's reflective of how I was specifically feeling during that time.'
