On to the recent releases!
Phish – Fuego – 2LP
Fuego, Phish’s twelfth studio album (and first in five years) is available for pre-order on CD and as a limited pressing 2-LP set on 180g Orange vinyl. Fuego was recorded in late 2013 in Nashville, TN after a series of writing sessions at The Barn in VT and was produced by Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel). While Fuego’s ten new tracks include songs that individual members brought to the table in usual Phish fashion, the bulk of the material was written by all four, working together at The Barn.
Bahamas – Bahamas Is Afie
Follow up to hugely succesful ‘Barchords’ album from this epic Canadian musician, having played for hit acts such as Feist, Howie Beck, Jason Collett, Jack Johnson, The Weather Station, and Zeus, to name a few. Afie Jurvanen isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie–a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he’s been making music under the name Bahamas–writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with crooked smiles. Through simple arrangements, he charts an escape route from the snow belt to the coral reefs.
FKA Twigs – LP1
FKA twigs, the London-based producer, singer, songwriter and video director, has released her debut full length “LP1” via the Young Turks label. “LP1” is FKA twigs defining artistic statement to date, building on the success of her two previous Eps (‘EP1’ and ‘EP2’) and accompanying videos which have elevated FKA twigs from a word-of-mouth secret to global obsession over the past two years. The album features none of these previously released EP tracks; instead each song on LP1 is brand new, born out of FKA twigs’ artistic philosophy of spontaneous creation and collaboration in the studio. “LP1” also features artwork from Jesse Kanda, who has manipulated his own photographs of twigs to stunning effect. Kanda previously directed the acclaimed videos for ‘Water Me’ and ‘How’s That’.
Ty Segall – Manipulator – 2LP
THE SEGALL HAS LANDED. And it’s fully loaded, with everything that TY SEGALL (and you and me) are gonna need in the world to come. Heads up! It’s coming down fast. Sticking his hand deeper into the machines all around him, TY is reaching ever further to the outer limits of inner space orbited throughout TWINS and SLEEPER. And now more than ever, the chunks of the world that came before are like asteroids formed in his image . . . picking up speed . . . .Still fighting the power with all the energy that a determined mind-patriot can conjure, Ty’s a fighter who loves, a surfer, a spaceman, and yeah, a casualty – like you, he’ll never be free. But unlike you, he knows it – and when he goes down and his head cracks in two, out pour the multi-colored manias that make up MANIPULATOR. Soursweet declarations featuring freaks and creeps alike: ‘The Singer’, ‘The Faker’, ‘Mister Main’, ‘Susie Thumb’, the ‘Connection Man’, and ‘The Crawler’, to name but a mutant fistful. Three-quarter quartets raising their din in a few key places. Waves of sparkling acoustics with ominous, Love-ly undertones – and then, torrents of filthy git-grunge, exploding into the chorus, washing everything away, fusing the blackness of SABBATH with the grime and grab-ass of the STOOGES and the sweet swinging tones of the STONES. All in the name of getting higher on the music. Why have one guitar solo when you can have a few in the same space? There’s so little time, and a LOT to say. In order to ensure that he got it all out, TY called a few friends to fill in special parts on certain MANIPULATOR songs.
