Snailhouse "Lies On The Prize" CD/LP

On Lies on the Prize, Snailhouse's songs hit harder, shine fiercer, than any that came before. It's due in large part to the production by Arcade Fire's Jeremy Gara. I love the affection in each track, the richness of sound, the amethysts & seashells & uppercuts they found. Snailhouse is Mike Feuerstack, who also plays in the Wooden Stars and Bell Orchestre. (Said The Gramophone)

Mock Orange "Captain Love" CD

Captain Love is an immediate classic. By continuing to take risks and stetch their already developed musical abilities, Mock Orange prove once again they are one of the most interesting and original bands making music today. One need look no further than the album’s cover, designed by Kathleen Lolley (My Morning Jacket's Z), to get an idea of the many treats that await inside. Captain Love was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Jeremy Ferguson (Be Your Own Pet, Josh Rouse).

Aloha "Light Works" Picture Disc 12"

This collection of seven new Aloha songs was conceived to be an end-of-the-calender-year pleasant surprise: a care package or a thank you note to fans and anyone who might be curious. But Aloha has a problem doing anything halfway, and the result is a set of Aloha’s most gorgeous, ambitious and fully-realized songs. Instead of saying thanks, Aloha is probably saying hello to a bunch of new listeners.

Each song is based on Tony’s acoustic guitars, but the world they inhabit is vintage Aloha: richly detailed, moody, intensely rhythmic and flowing with melody. It’s probably Aloha’s most inviting release, in spirit and in sound. Aloha multi-instrumentalist and studio wizard T.J. Lipple mixes in the studio magic while leaving the free-spirited vibe of the recording sessions intact (the EP’s closer, for example, is mainly a song written over an improvised piece). Piano, brass, oddly tuned guitars, drums, bass, mallet instruments and vintage keyboards fill out the arrangements.

Owen "The EP" 12"

Owen a.k.a. Mike Kinsella (American Football, Joan of Arc) returned in 2004 with five new songs that are as wry and biting as ever. Kinsella is joined by Cale Parks on vibraphone, Bob Hoffnar on pedal steel, Jen Tabor o and violin, and Paul Koob on vioobrophone and violoncello. The vinyl 12" has "I woke up today" from the Japanese version of Owen's latest album "I do perceive" as a bonus track.

Out of Stock  

Metal Hearts "Socialize" LP

On Socialize, Metal Hearts drop a mope-addled dose of bedroom rock. On which Anar's baritone lends a low foundation to Flora's airy registers. Sonically meshing together the angular bites of Long Drive-era Modest Mouse, the expansive bedroom drone of Arab Strap, and the subtle whispers of Cat Power.

Musika 77 "Brave You Free May" CD

Brave You Free May arrives with power restrained, like the onset of an avalanche. Eight bittersweet songs aching with memories past, holding promise for the future. An album full of stories, of bittersweet tales of life. A record about letting go, about moving on, about death and loss. About truth.

Palestar "?Mind The Landscapes!" CD

Palestar invite you on a journey of sensitive passion and brilliant pathos. Excellent songwriting combined with powerful instruments create unique emotions, that will certainly hold their promise to change things from the moment you've heard the bands music for the first time. These stardust melodies were fed by a narcissistic voice that touches your heart in an uncompared way. "?Mind the landscapes!" is not far now from the dogma of works like "Pure Phase" by Spiritualized or Mercury Rev's "Deserters Songs". Just let those guys go a little further on in. Space is the place!

Headlights "The Enemies EP" one-sided 12"

Headlights are at the forefront of the resurgent scene happening in the twin cities of Champaign-Urbana. By exhibiting an uncanny ability to merge electronics with the barest of pop elements, Headlights carve a unique niche for themselves that falls nicely between My Bloody Valentine and The Postal Service. The Vinyl includes the bonus track Pity City. CD EP released on Polyvinyl Records.

Björn Kleinhenz "Trans Pony"

It would just be too easy to see in Bjrn Kleinhenz nothing but the new Northern

Singer/Songwriter-Sensation. To be just that, his design of contemplation is too close to the less geographically obvious heroes in adagio, just as The Jayhawks, Canyon or Early Day Miners. Closest though to his own melancholies.

Buy it from Amazon or Mi Amante Records  

Rob & The Pinhole Stars "Stop and Start"

"Stop and Start" the boys recent effort is just that: pausing and beginning anew. They are celebrating the selfreflecting and warm-hearted moment of their songs in their already known devotion. But this time they dare to do it in obvious self-confidence. They dare to be Pop. They don't hold back. The acoustic and electronic elements are mutually dependent while the acoustic side knows more graceful harmonies und the electronics are enhanced to be more than just state-of-the-art. It is stop and start: Irresistibly dynamic.

Rob & The Pinhole Stars / Björn Kleinhenz - split MCD

It would just be too easy to see in Bjrn Kleinhenz nothing but the new Northern Singer/Songwriter-Sensation. To be just that, his design of contemplation is too close to the less geographically obvious heroes in adagio, just as The Jayhawks, Canyon or Early Day Miners. Closest though to his own melancholies.

Rob & The Pinhole Stars, for their part, seem to be lost to the world while celebrating their thoughtful absence. For their fusion of Singer/Songwriter and minimal electro no emotion seems big enough, as long as it's theirs.

Gregor Samsa - 27:36 + 2dot LP

Gregor Samsa's music equals a dream out of sound, ethereal female/male vocals, lucid, inspiring moments and sometimes noisy emphasis. They delve into worlds that've seen aesthetes such as L'altra, Sigur Ros or Godspeed You! Black Emperor before, yet they discover some fertile new ground. This now available LP, namely "27:36 + 2DOT", features their recent album plus one track of their first EP. Back in print! Buy it from Mi Amante Records  

Coach - "Kill 'em All" CD

The pop-appeal of Promise Ring, the melancholy of Chamberlain, the Indie-appearance of Jesus & Mary Chain and last but not least this album title - what a debut!
