  • The Sea And Cake – Any Day (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1618141 The Sea And Cake deliver a refreshingly intimate collection of elegantly
    arranged, singular pop songs. For over two decades and 11 albums, The
    Sea And Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate,
    intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies.
    Masters of subtlety, their compositions have continually evolved – through
    minute alterations in texture, unusual approaches to lyrics, and creative
    production choices. Any Day is testament to The Sea And Cake’s artistry,
    song craft, and utterly unique sound. The results are intimate songs that
    speak to the searcher in all of us. Through shifting instrumentation and
    sonic exploration, the band invites you into a world that is both familiar
    and unexpected.
    Written and recorded following the departure of bassist Eric Claridge, Any
    Day is The Sea And Cake’s frst album recorded as the trio of Sam Prekop,
    Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire. Since the release of their last album
    (2012’s Runner), the band have, in addition to shows, been creatively very
    busy: Prekop focusing on solo modular synthesizer and soundtrack work,
    including an acclaimed collaboration with artist David Hart, McEntire’s
    recording and touring with Tortoise, and maintaining a busy schedule as
    a recording engineer and producer, and Prewitt’s work as a cartoonist and
    illustrator, in addition to duo performances with Prekop. The band, still
    actively performing with bassist Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback),
    were inspired by the challenge of composing as a smaller unit.
    Any Day captures The Sea And Cake’s distinctive aural alchemy, melding
    longing melancholy with hopeful excitement. In other hands the
    combination seems impossible, but for The Sea And Cake, it’s effortless.

    Image: 1607953 Brokeback ist das langjährige Projekt von Douglas McCombs, bekannt von Tortoise, Pullman und Eleventh Dream Day oder auch als Kollaborateur mit Tom Ze, Azita Youseffi, Will Oldham, Calexico oder Yo La Tengo. Nachdem 2013 mit “Brokeback And The Black Rock” das erste Album nach einer 10-jährigen Pause erschien, hat McCombs Inspiration für “Illinois River Valley Blues” schneller eingesetzt. Das derzeitige Quartett besteht neben McCombs aus James Elkington (Tweedy, Steve Gunn), Pete Croke (Exit Verse, Tight Phantomz) und Areif Sless-Kitain (The Eternals). Das Album wurde von John McEntire (Stereolab, Yo La Tengo) produziert, und die Fotos zum Album stammen von Sam Prekop (The Sea and Cake). Amalea Tshilds (the Paulina Hollers) hat Vocals als Gast beigetragen. Die LP-Version erscheint mit MP3-Download Coupon. Erhältlich ab 24.02.2017

  • Brokeback – Illinois River Valley Blues (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1607954 A sense of place has been essential to the music of Brokeback since guitarist/bassist
    Douglas McCombs frst launched the project in 1995. Initially conceived as a solo
    outlet, the Chicago group has taken on new dimensions over the past two decades,
    morphing from the lean, pastoral ambience of the frst album, Field Recordings
    from the Cook County Water Table, to the more muscular, taut arrangements
    and dynamic swells of the last release, Brokeback and the Black Rock, for which
    McCombs assembled a new quartet lineup. Each album develops with exacting
    detail, revealing McCombs’s gift for dialing in the essence of a mood, feeling, or
    distant locale with a handful of reverb-laden guitar tones, elegant and sustained,
    strategically placed and sparingly deployed. The instrumental landscapes he creates
    on Illinois River Valley Blues are utterly transportive, evoking familiar open-frontier
    soundtracks and charting out new sonic territory.
    McCombs’s singular approach to guitar and bass, characteristic of his work with
    Tortoise, is expertly enhanced here by James Elkington (Tweedy, Steve Gunn) on
    second guitar (moving over from drums on the last record). The two salute one of
    McCombs’s favorite bands, Television, with latticed dual leads on the stately yet
    aggressive “On the Move and Vanishing,” while Elkington’s subtle layers of pedal
    steel and organ burnish more ruminative forays like “Andalusia, IL” and “Ursula.”
    Their intertwining ?ights are anchored by the sturdy yet versatile rhythm team of
    bassist Pete Croke (Exit Verse, Tight Phantomz) and drummer Areif Sless-Kitain
    (the Eternals), the newest member of Brokeback.
    Thematically this is McCombs’s most personal offering yet, re?ecting on his early
    years growing up along the Illinois River corridor between Peoria and Chicago.
    Though the inspiration is McCombs’s, the execution is wholly a group effort. With
    the same instrumentation and mostly the same lineup as the previous album, the
    band stretches its leader’s eternal fascination with the roots of American guitar
    music in bold new directions. A serpentine mystique runs through “Rise, Fernanda,
    Rise!,” and “Cairo Levee” conjures a desert atmosphere closer to the Sahara than
    the American southwest. Side one of the album closes with a moody, meditative
    take on “Spanish Venus,” a ballad written by cornetist and sometime Brokeback
    collaborator Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground, Exploding Star Orchestra). “I
    could hear Brokeback doing the tune from the moment I heard him workshopping
    it with Pulsar Quartet at a little cocktail bar in Logan Square,” says McCombs.
    Several songs feature lush, multi-layered vocals by Amalea Tshilds (the Paulina
    Hollers), who made a deep impression on McCombs with a spellbinding a cappella
    performance a couple years ago. “I often imagine female vocals on Brokeback
    records, but I wanted it to be someone that I have personal history with, someone
    who can nail it, not to mention someone who I know digs the music,” he says.
    “That’s why Mary Hansen (Stereolab) sang on all those earlier records and why I
    wanted Lea for this.”
    Illinois River Valley Blues is a winding, wistful travelogue that not only captures
    darker textures but mines their depths. That’s been part of McCombs’s vision for
    Brokeback from the start: “To me a song is not worth writing if it doesn’t have a
    strong sense of melancholy,” he says
