    GRAHAM, WAYNE

    Joy!

    „Joy!“ knüpft genau dort an. Die beiden schreiben fantastische Songs, teilweise ganz wortwörtlich über Nacht, an denen andere monatelang feilen müssten. Sie sind virtuose Musiker und clevere Produzenten ihrer selbst, aber sie bleiben dabei stets sachlich, fast nüchtern. Eine Doktrin, die wohl einerseits auf ihre Helden zurückgeht - Leute wie J.J. Cale oder der auf dem Album zitierte, jüngst verstorbene Don Williams, vor allem aber John Prine, der - genau wie Sänger Kenny Miles - vor seiner Musikkarriere als Postbote im ländlichen Kentucky unterwegs war. Andererseits liegt jene höfliche Dezenz ganz sicher auch in ihrer Erziehung begründet. Die beiden sind in einer ebenso gläubigen wie Familie aufgewachsen. Ihr Vater hat einst in ihrer Heimatstadt eine Kirche gegründet in der die beiden Brüder – damals gerade acht und 13 Jahre alt – ihn regelmäßig bei Gottesdiensten an Schlagzeug und Bass begleiten. Nichtsdestotrotz erweitert das neue Album ihre Farbpalette um ein gutes Stück. Der Opener „On My Throne“ rollt überraschend bluesig und bitter politsch aus Lautsprechern (“I’m better off than I deserve | I’m full of war but I never had to serve”) und auch das treibende, textlich so schön verrätselte „White Rose“ hat man so nicht kommen sehen.

    CASSELL, MATHEW LARKIN

    Pieces

    [engl] Originally from San Francisco, Matthew Larkin Cassell is a talented songwriter, vocalist and multi–instrumentalist. During the ’70s–80s, Cassell fronted a trio in the Bay Area, opening for major acts like The Tubes and Sylvester. Playing a particular fusion of funk, R&B, soul–jazz and 70s pop, he self–financed and released his first album, "Pieces", in 1977. Distributed only locally at the time, the album remained buried until it was discovered in the ’00s by beat makers and crate diggers which led to some of the tracks being sampled and included on mixes by people like Kon & Amir, Madlib and M.F. Doom. Reputed labels like Stones Throw and P–Vine reissued Casell’s music at the same time that the original album was sought–after by funk collectors and reached outrageous prices. Here’s a straight reissue in original artwork with master tape sound and including a lyrics insert.

    CYRIL CYRIL

    Certaines Ruines

    [engl] 
    Of all the Cyrils born in the city of Calvin at the dawn of the 80s, these two were bound to find each other. Two Cyrils like two dizygotic souls whose contingencies have brought their meeting forward. Cyril Cyril. A liberated hydra, born in this city of diplomats where Borges duplicated his rejuvenated ego in “The Other”. On the ruins of their worn out bands, they put together an innately cosmopolitan empire. Because these Cyrils have devoured miles, away from their Genovese haven. A muezzin without borders, Cyril Yeterian came to the disheveled world through Mama Rosin, a three-piece that stirred the ghosts of the rogue bayou, the clammy Mardi Gras of some electric Louisiana. Soon, the world fell in love with their flair. The BBC celebrated them, Jon Spencer produced them, records proliferated. And then in 2017, the honeymoon period passed. Cyril was alone. Well, not quite: music kept popping up around him. Inside his Bongo Joe record store, on the label of the same name, in the underground DJ sets he stirred up, Yeterian explored like crazy, in a binge of exiled grooves. Within the same space-time, Cyril Bondi hit the road. Diatribes, La Tène, Insub Meta Orchestra, the most adventurous projects of the Geneva scene all had a bone to pick with this percussionist in search of unheard beats.

    ANTILLES MECHANT BATEAU - Deep biguines & Gwo ka from 60’s french West-indies

    [engl] 
    The West Indies – a sweet coastline subject to many clichés from another time. That postcard with coconut trees, a glass of rum to sip on, those so exotic madras dresses... Almost as many as in Compagnie Créole’s "doudouist" songs, that say a lot about the misunderstandings from both sides of the ocean. West Indians are still as stuck with this distorted outlook as in the good old days of the colonies. Because, underneath the veneer of moldy images, a completely different reality is woven. ‘They beat drums but were never number one’ – to misquote the chorus by a Martinique-born French singer. This is the subject of this collection – musicians drumming on percussion as a way of asserting their creolized identity. Songs that tell, in veiled terms, a different reality from what mainlanders were fed with. Special cases, with cries of joy and laments accompanied by cadences, as an invitation to trance, all immersed in the Caribbean melting pot of rhythm. “’Antilles’ Méchant Bateau”, a low-tempo number with a bolero feel, indeed a pure case of the blues, and a terrific saxophone solo. What else would you expect to set the tone for this selection, in which beguine regains its original colors, in the darkness of the gwo ka drums. This 45 by André Mahy, released under the Aux Ondes sublabel, was recorded in the 1960s at Célini’s, one of Guadeloupe’s two main houses.

    CASSELL, MATHEW LARKIN

    Matt The Cat

    [engl] Originally from San Francisco, Matthew Larkin Cassell is a talented songwriter, vocalist and multi–instrumentalist. During the ’70s–80s, Cassell fronted a trio in the Bay Area, opening for major acts like The Tubes and Sylvester. Playing an unique fusion of funk, R&B, jazz and soft–rock, he recorded his first LP, "Pieces" in 1977, followed by a 12" titled "Matt The Cat" in 1978. Both were privately pressed and modestly distributed at the time. Fast forward to the early ’00s: Cassell’s albums are discovered by beat diggers & hip–hop producers, which led to some of his songs being sampled and included on mixes by people like Kon & Amir, Madlib and M.F. Doom. Famous labels such as Stones Throw and P–Vine reissue his music at the same time that his original albums reach outrageous prices in the collector’s market. Here’s an overdue reissue of Cassell’s second effort, "Matt The Cat", originally released in 1978. A great fusion of FUNK, R&B, SOUL–JAZZ and 70s SSW / AOR, featuring "All I’m Missing Is You", sampled by People Under The Stairs. Includes two bonus tracks from his rare "Love To Love" / "When I Go Down" 45 from 1980.

    MELNYK, LUBOMYR

    Concert-Requiem / -Islands-

    [engl] Limited All Analog Remastering Recording This is one my most beloved albums ... it always reminds me of the horror that occurred in my homeland, Ukraine, in 1933. And I am always thankful when I hear it. It is good to remember the suffering of other people ! Otherwise, life is not worth living..... This album came about in an interesting way .... there came to me a melody at some point that year ... I was not even at the piano .... a melody that I just began to sing ... When I played it on the piano for my friend, the artist Dmitri Farkavec, he right away loved it and suggested that it would be a great opening for a piece dedicated to the multi-millions of Ukrainians who suffered a terrible and deliberate extinction at the hands of the Russians who had invaded my country. As he said to me, "1983 is the 50 year commemoration of the Terror Famine --- it would be a good year to make this piece." And so it came to be ! "CONCERT-REQUIEM" is dedicated to the over seven million Ukrainians who were killed by the Forced Starvation of 1933 who watched in agony as Communist police destroyed grain as they and their children lay starving to death. This album also contains "ISLANDS" for solo piano --- a remarkable bass-oriented piece depicting enormous masses of mystical and murky islands moving through an imaginary sea.. It was inspired by and created for a dance performance by Windwitches of Stockholm. Original Release: 1984 Limited All Analog Remastering Recording

    Odds

    In dem Video zu »Iron«, der ersten Singleauskopplung von »Odds« sieht man sich hilflos wankend durch den Wald irren, wackelig auf den eigenen Beinen. Fast wie in Zeitlupe verschwimmen die dichten Tannen immer wieder. »Oh, it feels like nobody’s home / Yeah it feels like that, when your sorrows leave their hole« singt Sänger Kai Lehmann darüber, während man unter einzelnen Tannenzapfen und Ästen hinweg taucht, trunken aber bedacht um jeden Schritt den man geht. Der Blick zu Boden. Den Blick in den Himmel. »Iron« bildet auf dem Album den Schluss und thematisiert ihn gleichermaßen indem er mit etwas Abstand auf eine Trennung zurückblickt, nüchtern, für sich alleine und trotzdem musikalisch so dicht, dass es beständig zwischen textlicher Ebene und instrumentaler Vielschichtigkeit hin und her pendelt.+++ »Odds« bewegt sich neun Songs hindurch zwischen scheinbaren Gegensätzlichkeiten. Der nüchterne Rückblick auf eine gescheiterte Beziehung wird mit einer verletzlichen Emotionalität ausgedrückt, die charakteristisch für Garda ist. Jedes Mal, wenn man denkt, man bekommt einen Song zu fassen, verschwimmt er schon wieder vor Augen. Langsam zäh dahin fließende Momenten werden von einer sich majestätisch aufbäumenden Instrumentalisierung aufgefangen.

    The Lund - St.Petri Symphony

    [engl] " In 1978 I arrived for my first time to Sweden, to the town of Lund .. and there I met a remarkable man named Jean Sellem who ran a tiny gallery in the middle of the town, "The Galleri St.Petri: Dedicated To Modern Art and Thought "... and he was one of the few and first people who saw the greatness and beauty of Continuous Music .. and since I was a complete "unknown" at that time, I really needed his moral support ! --- and he created with me, the idea of a huge work for multiple pianos ... three pianos .. in stages ... and it became as he had envisioned ! and was first performed on a small upright piano in 1978 in his gallery, and the piece was called THE LUND.St.PETRI SYPMPHONY .. becuase it was so symphonic in grandeur (once the three pianos came together ...) The Lund - St. Petri Symphony, from 1979, is the second album from Lubomyr Melnyk and the first composition for double piano which he released. In this work, the early minimalist tendencies which played such a major part in the emergence of Continuous music, are very significant and clearly evident. This Double LP set sold out within 1 year of production, Only 1000 copies were made. Original Release: 1980 Limited All Analog Remastering Recording

    The Song of Galadriel

    [engl] "Reading Tolkein´s LORD OF THE RINGS saga was one of the greatest experiences of my life ... his amazing talent for words was mindboggling ... and the great topics he touched upon remain forever as the most important topics of life ... they are still most valid today .. and will be for all eternity. Everything he described through his magical words came to life before my eyes ! So it was most natural that he would inspire music within me ... music that I can not describe in words how it relates to the Saga .. but deep inside me, it all shines clear as a lamp-post on a dark street ... and it shines into my soul in many, many dimensions....." .... and on a technical note, this piece marked the first time I created Arpegge Melodies within Continuous Music !" In the ”Song of Galadriel” Lubomyr Melnyk has created one of the great epics of piano music in our century, a work of visionary character, filled with haunting and delicate melodies that evoke the mystical world of Tolkein's ”Lord Of The Rings”.

    KHALAB

    Black Noise 2084

    Khalab ist ein italienischer Elektronikproduzent. Mit "Black Noise 2084" räumt er endgültig mit dem abgenutzten und oberflächlichen Klischee auf, "black music" wäre ein Konzept, das sich auf Soul beschränke. Da Soul einen letztlich affirmativen und besänftigenden Charakter besäße, gelte es stattdessen, all den Terror und die Unterdrückung, welche die Bewohner Afrikas und deren Nachfahren in der "Neuen Welt" erleiden mussten, im Sinne einer Katharsis hörbar zu machen. Dabei gingen Khalab prominente Mitstreiter wie Shabaka Hutchings, Moses Boyd, Tamar "The Collocutor" Osborn, Gabin Dabire, Tenesha The Wordsmith, Tommaso Cappellato, Prince Buju und Clap! Clap! zur Hand. Für seine loopbasierten Sounds nutzte Khalab Feldaufnahmen aus dem Archiv des Königlichen Museums für Zentral-Afrika in Brüssel, in dem zahlreiche ethnografische Zeugnisse der europäischen, insbesondere belgischen Kolonialgeschichte gelagert sind. Rein musikalisch gesehen vereinen die zehn Stücke auf "Black Noise 2084" tribalistische Perkussion sowie Sprach-, Gesangs- und Chor-Beiträge, bei denen es sich teilweise um Samples handelt, mit elektronischen Klängen, die durchaus auch im Clubkontext funktionieren würden, und jazzigen Sounds.

    OYEWOLE, EJI

    Charity Begins At Home

    (BBE)
    Reissue eines Klassikers der nigerianischen Afrobeat-Szene. Er lebte in London, Genf, Hamburg und Lyon, spielte mit Fela Kuti, King Sunny Adé, Miles Davis und Bob Marley und zählt noch heute zu den großen Namen des Afrobeats und Highlife: Der Nigerianer Eji Oyewole steht für das goldene Zeitalter westafrikanischer Musik. In eine royale Familie hineingeboren, kann Prince Eji Oyewole auf eine über 50-jährige Karriere als Flötist, Saxofonist und Bandleader zurückblicken. Das Album "Charity Begins At Home", das jetzt neu gemastert wieder vorliegt, entstand Ende der 70er-Jahre für EMI Nigeria und stellt eindrucksvoll Oyewoles Version von Highlife vor: weniger Dominanz der Gitarren, dafür mehr Bläser, viele Einflüsse aus amerikanischem Funk und Jazz und natürlich die für afrikanische Musik typische kräftige perkussive Unterstützung.

    TRUE STORIES

    Pop

    [engl] Bart Medoza is, undoubtedly, one of the greatest pop songwriters America has given us in the last three decades, as he has proved along the years as the leading force behind Manual Scan and then The Shambles. Now he is back with a new project, True Stories, where he has joined some usual suspects from San Diego, including long-time friend David Fleminger (Manual Scan). After a cd released in the U.S.A and a few appearances in tribute albums all over the world, here we have their first vinyl 45 with a selection of their finest moments, probably some of the best songs ever penned by Bart. Classic powerpop shots with a Zombiesque organ sound here and there, sublime stuff.

    KING JARTUR & HIS LORDS

    Summer Fun

    [engl] Our lord and his brave knights are back! Their vinyl heroic deeds are worldwide known: two heartfelt tributes to their pop & garage heroes released as 45s by Tryptic & Bickerton some years ago (both sold out now) and a fantastic first album “Ah de la Almena!!” in 2015 that placed them among Spanish top bands if you're talking about frat-rock, garage and surf-pop. But the party can't stop so King Jartur & His Lords have decided to charge against boredom and give us the perfect soundtrack for the fortcoming summertime. They fit themselves in their coats of mail, changed their horses for surf boards and here they are again. The band from Toledo give us four new surf-pop hits, three self-penned compositions plus an ace cover of the timeless classic “Anywhere The Girls Are”. Pure ambrosia for beach sounds fans in a killer artwork by Roberto Argüelles.

    OSAMU KITAJIMA

    Osamu (1977)

    [engl] 
    This is the third album by Osamu Kitajima, one of Japan's most prolific artists from the ethno rock, world music and progressive department. You can certainly not divide all the mentioned stylistic aspects from each other for they were all incorporated in a homogenious sound and complex arrangements. It is the same with his other albums like „Benzaiten“ and or his fourth „Masterless Samurai“; traditional Japanese music meets Western jazzrock and progressive sounds to form a new style unheard by most people in Western countries at the time. Osamu Kitajima easily plays with elements of reggae and funk, fusion jazz and colorful pop while staying true to his Japanese roots with bits and pieces of traditional melodies and the use of old Asiatic instruments. The Japanese influence makes this music uniqe and still it gets as close to Western rock and pop sounds as it could. An adventurous journey through the world from East Asia to West Africa and to the steaming metropolises of the UK and USA is your reward when you put this perfectly produced album onto your turntable. The former PINK FLOYD comparison coming with „Benzaiten“ is not totally out of place with this selftitled 1977 album here but there is much more latitude in the allover style. Osamu Kitajima gathers a few well talented musicians around him on this record despite playing and arranging most of the instrumental passages himself.

    KIKI GYAN

    Feeling So Good

    [engl] 
    First time reissued on CD! This is in fact more than just a rare record and definitely more than just a vinyl share for insatiable collectors who only judge a record by it's monetary value. This is a prime example of overflowing talent coupled with a simmering passion for music and the hunger for life right at the moment. The story begins on Jue 7th 1957 in a small Ghanaian village where Kofi Kwarko Gyan, nicknamed Kiki, was born into a middle class family. Soon his talent as a musician began to show when he started taking piano lessions by the age of 5 and went professional by the age of 12. He dropped out of school shortly after and began living a life on the road with regional Ghanaian bands. One trip abroad took him to London in the early 70s where his career received a giant push at the age of 15. He joined afro rock legends OSIBISA in 1972 as their new keyboardist after his predecessor had left the band. By the mid 70s Kiki Gyan had played with OSIBISA to giant audiences allover the world and met personalities from the international music scene such as Elton John and Mick Jagger. He was not only a steady keyboardist for OSIBISA but also a very popular session man for fellow African bands and musicians, among them OFEGE from Nigeria. He released a couple of solo albums and we take a closer look now at his second effort from 1979, “Feeling so good”.

    GERALDO PINO

    Afro Soco Soul Live

    [engl] 
    He was born in Sierra Leone in the 1930s. Fact is that Gerald Pine was son to a lawyer working in Nigeria, lost his mother and sister at a very young age and found relief in music. He played social clubs by the early 60s with his newly founded band THE HEARTBEATS delivering cover-versions of American hits and Congolese rumba tunes that were then utterly popular in the West Africa area. Due to the influence of Congolese popular musicians Franco and Dr. Nico he adopted the more exotic sounding stage name of Geraldo Pino and he moved on from there. THE HEARTBEATS literally played until their fingers bled in popular night clubs in Sierra Leone, became one of the highest earning bands of Western Africa and were even able to put up their own television show after television had been introduced in Sierra Leone in 1962. All those developments put Geraldo Pino and his band in the position as leading figures in the African popular music that even a legend such as Nigerian cult musician Fela Kuti, who is often credited with originally creating the so called “Afro Beat” style stated Geraldo Pino and THE HEARTBEATS as major influence which even made him setting sail to the USA to introduce his musical vision over there for he could not match with Geraldo Pino concerning popularity in Africa.

    BUILDINGS, THE

    Death & Fun

    [engl] The Buildings come from Cáceres - Spain -, they are noise, beer, love, 3-minute-songs and 12-hour-nights. Strange beings in perpetual motion, imperceptible to the human eye but deafening to the hearing. After a successful 45 released in 2013 that took them to a tour all around Spain and to radio stations from all over the world, these young punks are back with an album wisely produced by Alex Pis (Ídolos del Extrarradio) of stunning brilliance. Self-penned compositions from rabid punk shots to noise litanies and dreamy pop, all wrapped in a killer artwork by Carlos González.

    DEALERS, THE

    Turning Upside Down

    [engl] Two sold-out 45s and one of the best Spanish albums in decades can be found in the cv of this outstanding Basque combo. Now they are back with new songs recorded at Circo Perrotti analogue studios last Christmas in which they return to their r&b roots with three self-penned stompers of pure 60's freakbeat-r&b full of wild harmonicas, acid guitars and echoes of the Pretty Things, Downliners Sect, Crawdaddys or Headcoats. Their best 45 so far, and that's pretty much!
