    This Just In: Lily-O

    posted by Emile

    I’ve been a huge fan of Sam Amidon since a friend turned me on to his All Is Well album back in ’08. At that point I was just starting to become familiar with American folk and blues, so hearing a contemporary artist experimentally reworking some of those standards was really exciting. His version of “Oh Death” is probably my favorite. All Is Well was Amidon’s second album, and this week Lily-O, his fifth, is available on vinyl. His voice might not be something a lot of people can get into, but it gives a uniqueness to his songs, original and traditional alike. And voice notwithstanding, he’s an incredible banjo and fiddle player. Plus he’s always got an arsenal of amazing musicians filling in the atmospheres. Hell, he’s married to Beth Orton (who sings on some older material), has Shahzad Ismaily handling multiple instruments on multiple albums, and even nabbed Bill Frisell to play some guitar on Lily-O. Check out “Walkin’ Boss” below (apparently one the first songs Amidon learned how to play on banjo as a teenager), and come pick up the record. There’s also an insane list of in-stocks this week, so don’t forget to check that out too!

    Sam Amidon – Lily-O LP:
    Listen: “Walkin’ Boss”

    Lily-O, a new album of reimagined folk songs by Vermont-born singer / fiddler / banjoist / guitarist Sam Amidon will be released September 30 by Nonesuch Records (with vinyl to come October 28). The album was produced by Valgeir Sigurðsson (Björk, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Feist) and features the innovative jazz guitarist and composer Bill Frisell, along with Amidon’s other frequent collaborators, bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Chris Vatalaro.

    Lily-O’s 10 songs are mostly traditional folk songs gathered from disparate sources and refashioned in Amidon’s signature way. The interplay between the four musicians is informed by their backgrounds in improvised music and the spontaneous nature of the sessions. As always, the central element is Amidon’s voice, which, in his deceptively understated manner, tells tales of adventure, love, violence and redemption.

    Lily-O follows four albums by Amidon including his 2013 Nonesuch debut, Bright Sunny South. 2010’s I See The Sign and 2008’s All Is Well were made for the Icelandic label Bedroom Community and featured orchestral arrangements by composer Nico Muhly. Along the way Amidon has performed worldwide in myriad contexts, collaborating with musicians such as Muhly, Thomas Bartlett/Doveman, Beth Orton and Glen Hansard. He has appeared as a guest artist on recent albums by Tune-Yards, Aoife O’Donovan and the Blind Boys of Alabama.” -Nonesuch

    This Just In: dubnobasswithmyheadman

    posted by Emile

    This record needs no full explanation. 20 years later, Underworld’s dubnobasswithmyheadman is still one of the most influential and important electronic records ever made. Whether you know it or not, if you’ve been alive the past 20 years, you’ve heard bits and pieces of this throughout most of your life. Finally fuckin’ reissued, tricked-out and totally worth it! As they so perfectly put it: “dubnobasswithmyheadman was hailed as a game changer on release at the start of 1994. Two decades on, it is unarguably one of the most influential British electronic records of all time – a signpost for everything from dance music’s easy relationship with festival main stages, to the radio and globe-conquering EDM phenomenon.” Know your roots!

    TURN ON #1 is Tonight!

    posted by Lolo

    Fellow music enthusiasts: we’re so excited because tonight is the first in our new series of music discussion nights entitled TURN ON!

    Each one will start with an “expert” presentation, I’ll be doing the first one tonight, talking about él and Cherry Red Records and the post-post-punk/art-pop scene in the UK in the late ’80s/early ’90s. Obscure? Sure, but the whole point of this is for everyone to get turned on to something new.

    After that each attendee will be able to submit one topic into the Devo energy dome and we’ll draw them at random and discuss as a group. At the end there will be time to hang out, continue debating, and generally geek out further.

    There will be snacks, and huge thanks to PBR for donating beer. We’ll see you tonight!

    This Just In: Tche Belew

    posted by Emile

    We’re really big on Ethiopian music here at Sweat. Walk in on any given day and you’re bound to hear sounds of the vast Ethiopiques series (Vol 17: Tlahoun Gèssèssè is my favorite), or the more well-known works of Mulatu Astatke. Another artist we play the hell out of is Hailu Mergia. So naturally, I was stoked when the promo for Hailu Mergia & The Walias – Tche Belew arrived. Awesome Tapes from Africa doesn’t ever disappoint, but this might just be their finest reissue yet. Not only is the music enthralling, moving and fun, it carries a heavy socio-political history, which is rare for an instrumental album. Take a listen and read more about Tche Belew’s history below.

    Hailu Mergia & The Walias – Tche Belew LP:
    Listen – “Eti Gual Blenai

    “The acclaimed and highly sought-after LP by Hailu Mergia and the Walias, Tche Belew, an album of instrumentals released in 1977, is perhaps the most seminal recording released in the aftermath of the 1974 revolution. The story of the Walias band is a critical chapter in Ethiopian popular music, taking place during a period of music industry flux and political complexity in the country.

    Hailu Mergia, a keyboardist and arranger diligently working the nightclub scene in Addis Ababa, formed the Walias in the early 1970’s with a core group of musicians assembled from prior working bands. They played Mergia’s funk- and soul-informed tunes, while cutting 45rpm singles with various vocalists.

    While the Walias performed at top hotels and played the presidential palace twice, their relationship with the Derg regime was complex, evidenced by the removal of one song from the record by government censors.

    Decades later, Hailu Mergia was surprised to see the album fetching more than $4,000 at online auctions (it helped that the most popular of all Ethiopian tunes “Musicawi Silt” appeared on the record). Now everyone has the chance to listen again—or for the first time—to this timeless pillar of Ethiopian popular music.” -Awesome Tapes From Africa

    This Just In: Believe The Hype

    posted by Emile

    You’ve probably been hearing a lot about the new Caribou and Flying Lotus albums. Of course you have – they’ve got the PR forces of legendary labels behind them. But if you follow “This Just In,” you know I don’t typically herald the things that already have the needed funding and logistics to thrive in fickle, consumerist record land. So why am I coming at you today with two albums that you already know about? Well, it’s because I know some of you might be quick to dismiss something you keep seeing/reading/hearing about all over the interwebs as being “all hype.” While that may be true in many (if not most) cases, the new efforts by Caribou and Flying Lotus are more than worth the hype. These are freakin’ incredible records! One, a smooth ambling house/r&b-tinged affair, the other, exercises in the outer limits of jazz/hip-hop/glitch-digital maximalism (with insane visuals to boot!). Check out some clips below and then grab a seat next to me on the hype machine. And if you still need further proof, you can catch Flying Lotus this weekend at III Points in Wynwood, and Caribou next month at Grand Central.
