    This Just In: Miscontinuum

    posted by Emile

    If you follow “This Just In,” then you know I’m a fan of contemporary, experimental takes on classical styles, especially opera. Last year we lost two great composers who really opened my eyes to how far you can push opera; Robert Ashley and Elodie Lauten. But their legacy lives on in the artists who are taking the challenging form, skewing it and running with it. It’s exciting that Jan St. Werner is one of them. Probably better known as one-half of Mouse On Mars and Microstoria, I got into St. Werner’s solo Lithops project and his subsequent work under his own name a bit more than the aforementioned. 2013’s Blaze Colour Burn was on heavy rotation in the shop when it dropped, sparking lots of strange looks and customers asking “is this just a whole album of parade recordings?” It wasn’t.

    Now, with Miscontinuum, St. Werner has raised the skewed bar even higher with an electronic opera. When applying the term “opera” to this work, you can’t begin to think of it in a concrete sense. Yes, there are libretti, but they’re written by Markus Popp (Oval) and read by Dylan Carlson (Earth). And the vocals? Well, they’re screams, whispers, pitch modulations and beyond. Overall, Miscontinuum is an extension of the operatic form, utilizing experimental/electronic approaches and sounds to create a journey through an abstract atmosphere with an obtuse narrative that’s more sense- than language-based at times. It’s a feeling, a complete experience, and definitely not intended for casual listening. And if you happen to be in London early February, you can fully experience Miscontinuum live. Please go and tell me all about it. Full details from Thrill Jockey and our weekly in-stock list are below…

    Jan St. Werner – Miscontinuum Album 2LP:
    Listen/Watch: “Miscontinuum Album Medley”
    Miscontinuum Album documents an impressive new work by seminal electronic musician Jan St. Werner, whose innovations with Mouse on Mars and Microstoria are well documented. Over a period of approximately four years Miscontinuum has been developed and refined as an operatic live performance in Munich, as well as a radio play. This recorded incarnation of the work is the third entry in Werner’s lauded Fiepblatter series, and features contributions by Dylan Carlson (Earth), Markus Popp (Oval), Kathy Alberici, and Taigen Kawabe (Bo Ningen). It is a challenging listen not compromised for casual music consumption habits, but with time and close listening it yields vast rewards. Miscontinuum Album is a radical convergence of sound exploration and storytelling that has few precedents.

    The central concept of Miscontinuum explores misconceptions of time and memory, inspired by unique acoustic phenomena derived digital phasing and musical time stretching techniques. There is an aura of doom that pervades the work. Much of the album’s evocative nature comes from the interplay of Werner’s electronics with Alberici and Kawabe’s voices and the contrast between those organic and inorganic elements. Popp, a longtime collaborator with Werner in Microstoria, wrote the libretti, which is presented in five distinct scenes and recited redolently by Carlson. The surreal plot involves a progressive distinction of time as a force rather than a structuring system, and an individual who can shift consciously between states within that force. The high concepts and unusual creative partners combine for an album that is uncommonly emotionally resonant.

    Miscontinuum was first performed as a part of Werner’s Asymmetric Studio series in Munich on June 18th, 2013, and also featured video by Werner and Karl Kliem and stage design by Christina del Yelmo & Sonia Gomez Villar. It was broadcast by Bayerischer Rundfunk public radio ten days later. The striking visual elements, flowing dresses and impressionistic masses of color, make appearances on the album’s art, and will be presented in new forms in the coming months. The first revised version of the Miscontinuum featuring live video by Zoya Bassi will premiere at the St Luke’s Church in London on Feb 8th 2015 and is the first in a series of more shows to come in 2015.” -Thrill Jockey

    This Just In: Drunken Warrior Chief

    posted by Emile

    Whew! Took a few weeks to get these in, but finally, copies of LOAD’s Drunken Warrior Chief are here. You want local stuff? This is beyond essential. These will go fast, so move quick. Check out what LOAD’s drummer Fausto Figueredo has to say about the reissue below. And don’t forget this week’s in-stock list – it’s insane!

    LOAD – Drunken Warrior Chief LP (Colored Vinyl)
    Listen: “Cannon Procedure”
    “Dan from RAT TOWN Records, Tony Qualls, Frank (Rat Bastard) Falestra, Juan Montoya, Steven Toth, Chuck Loose, and The Whole South Florida Music (punk rock) Scene has had a part in this.  It started as a tribute to our brother Bobby Load. The process was long and hard. Never did we imagine that by the end of it we would have to overcome the loss of Jeff Tucci too. This record FINALLY captures LOAD in the way WE were LIVE. Re-mixed by RAT at Dan Hosker Studio. The record is NOW a tribute to both of them. The record includes a bunch of UNRELEASED TRACKS (like ‘Cannon Procedure’) that everybody will remember.” -Fausto

    Miami Girls Rock Camp Screening/Info Session

    posted by Emile

    Please join us as we host the inaugural Miami Girls Rock Camp event at Sweat this Saturday night. There will be a screening of the GIRLS ROCK! Documentary, followed by an info session to find out how you can become involved with the organization. The event runs 6-9 and the film will start at 6:15 sharp! Full info is below.

    “This will be an initial information session for people interested in volunteering for Miami Girls Rock Camp. First, we will screen the movie GIRLS ROCK! and then follow it up with an information session about volunteer opportunities, timelines, etc., and we will be able to answer any questions. Additionally, we will have all the volunteer forms available to be filled out and handed to us for processing. Light snacks will be provided.

    ‘Girls Rock! is a 2007 documentary film that follows four 8-18-year-old girls at the Rock and Roll Camp for Girls in Portland, Oregon, United States. At Rock and Roll Camp, girls ranging in age from eight to 18 are taught that it is 100% okay to be exactly who you are. The girls have a week to select a band, an instrument they may have never played before, and write a song. In between, they are taught by indie rock stars such as Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney various lessons of empowerment from self-defense to anger management. At the end of the week, all the bands perform a concert for over 700 people. The film follows several campers: Laura, a Korean adoptee obsessed with death metal; Misty, who is emerging from a life of meth addiction, homelessness and gang activity; and Amelia, an eight-year old who writes experimental rock songs about her dog Pipi.”‘
