    This Just In: Ooooohio

    posted by Emile

    Expanding on their Punk 45 series, Soul Jazz Records just dropped two collections of 70’s/early-80’s punk from, uh, Ohio. A seemingly random regional selection at first glance, but some people consider Ohio the “true birthplace of punk music in the mid-1970s.” Makes a lot of sense when you consider the familiar names on these comps (e.g. Devo, Pere Ubu, The Waitresses). But for all the obvious, there’s also multiple tracks from some lesser-knowns to round out the offerings. Both collections are available on 2LP and CD, and as per Soul Jazz protocol, come with extensive liner notes. It’s like you get a record and a book – seriously. Pick these up alongside something from this week’s complete in-stock list below!

    Various – PUNK 45: Extermination Nights In The Sixth City – Cleveland, Ohio: Punk And the Decline Of The Mid West 1975-82 2LP, CD
    Listen: Pere Ubu – “Final Solution”
    Various – PUNK 45: Burn Rubber City Burn! – Akron, Ohio: Punk And The Decline Of The Mid West 1975-80 2LP, CD
    Listen: The Waitresses – “The Comb”

    “Soul Jazz Records’ new ‘Punk 45′ album Extermination Nights In The Sixth City charts the rise of underground punk in the mid-west city of Cleveland, Ohio, which for many people is the true birthplace of punk music in the mid-1970s.Featuring a fantastic collection of punk 45 singles from Cleveland groups including Pere Ubu, electric eels, The Pagans, Rockets From The Tomb, Mirrors, X–X and more.

    Burn, Rubber City Burn charts the rise of the music scene in the mid-west city of Akron, Ohio at a time when the city and the rubber industry it was associated with was in deep decline. Featuring a fantastic collection of Akron groups including Devo, The Bizarros, Rubber City Rebels, Jane Aire, Chi-Pig, The Waitresses and more.”

    This Just In: Thousand Thursday

    posted by Emile

    Yes, it’s Wednesday, but I’m gonna tell you about Thousand Thursday, the new record by Michna. Why? Well, not only because it’s a brilliant mix of electronic and hip-hop instrumentals, but because he grew up in New York and Miami, and will be returning on February 20th for a special DJ set at Sweat. Thousand Thursday is a great primer for some of the sounds you’ll hear that night, so start listening now and get excited!

    Michna – Thousand Thursday LP:
    Listen: “She Exists In My Mind”
    “Are we all tired of the ‘[Artist] Returns After [Number] Years in Obscurity’ headline yet? Because Michna sure is. Nearly seven years following the NYC DJ/producer’s debut album for Ghostly, Magic Monday, he’s finished the official follow up to that record, but Adrian Yin Michna doesn’t want to overstate what happened in the interim. ‘Life just moves,’ he starts casually, ‘there’s been a lot going on.’ DJ gigs, music production for video games and commercials, and film scoring have kept him busy, along with a healthy balance of painting, biking, and other non-musical endeavors. In light of Michna’s sophomore LP, Thousand Thursday, though, it all seems beside the point. Simply put, his latest record is a celebration of the producer’s love for vibrant electronic music, bothering very little with conceptual or contextual baggage.

    And yet, in many ways, Thousand Thursday effortlessly streamlines Michna’s life and cultural background into affable dancefloor sounds. ‘My dad is from Ealing in West London,’ he shares, ‘and that’s been a huge direct musical influence my whole life, especially when I was a teen and spent some time in London in the mid­-’90s.’ You can easily hear that much in the ravey breakbeats and horn stabs that sneak into synthy tracks like ‘Cherry 2000′ and ‘Time Will Tell’, or even the vibe of rain­-soaked streets that permeates Thousand Thursday. Then there’s the artist’s enduring love for classic house, disco, and hip­-hop, which is more obvious. “Nuroq Legacy” effortlessly brings all of these influences into one lively, eclectic dance track, but the wistful “Increasing Ambition” is pure neon Italo and Michna’s unclassifiable brand of of hip-hop has never sounded better than on ‘She Exists In My Mind’.

    Perhaps less apparent is how the industrial tapes from Michna’s childhood played a role in creating these 10 spirited tracks. “I started re-­listening to them primarily just to hear how they flip samples,” he elaborates, and the technique is used all over Thousand Thursday. It lends the music an added bit of personal history and what Michna calls ‘subliminal messages,’ as he borrows from years and years worth of field recordings—including bits of ‘Blackberry video, Flip camera tour footage, terrible interviews with friends, people on the street, and found sounds galore.’ Rifle through the slow-grooving robo-beats on ‘Believe In It Pt. II’, or ‘Jace the Mind Sculptor’s’ densely textural ambient drift, and you’ll uncover layer upon chopped up layer of these lovingly curated snippets. There seems to be a tapestry of life’s strange, beautiful, and unexpected moments woven into Thousand Thursday

    For all of its varying influences and reference points, Thousand Thursday is actually a strong cohesive listen; each of Michna’s productions flow seamlessly into the next. This is an album where NYC/LA dance-­pop vocalist MNDR can deliver her chilly falsetto next to a lifelong gearhead twiddling the knobs of his Akai S­950, Korg MS­20, E­mu SP­1200, and other coveted hardware. Thousand Thursday is the sound of Michna re-discovering his passion for writing tunes and crafting an album, and whether he likes it or not, it all tells us a bit about where his mind has been during the years of his process.” – Ghostly

    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.”‘
