    JUNGLELYD

    s/t

    [engl] Cumbia is a Latin Americana traditional music form that originates from Colombia and has ever since spread across the whole Spanish speaking sub continent. It blends elements of indigenous South American melodies, African rhythms and European ways of developing harmonies and progress chords. With that style in mind as model nowadays many young artists from the Western hemispheres begin to develop an electronic variant that brings new life to the dancefloors of the old ghost town. Among these Danish electronic artist and DJ Kenneth Rasmussen and his band JUNGLELYD formed in 2015 explore the pathways of modern South American electronic music. Digital cumbia, Tropical bass, Zouk, Moombathon, modern sounds based on traditional Latin music for dancing purposes, all that had a slight impact on the creativity of JUNGLELYD which combine digital devices and analogue instruments in their music. The delicate flute playing adds a touch of souljazz to the hypnotical mix. All rhythms are a perfect blend of electronic beats and live percussion, while guitars, bass, brass and wood wind instruments build a rather vivid melodic superstructure. After two EPs in 2017 the band will release their debut album in 2020 on SOUNDS OF SUBTERRANIA, a label that explores the adventurous paths in music. The album begins with a relaxed cumbia styled tune that is an anthem to the greatest life elixir I personally know. Coffee. The lightweight guitar harmonies develop, float upon spacey synthesizer waves and follow rhythmical patterns that just intrude your locomotor system where they cause ongoing dance moves. Slightly more complex in its rhythmical structure, still as groovy as a cool piece could be „Boots“ comes jumping up and down from your speakers. Tropical island images enter your mind but still the electronic elements and fantastic melodies keep this song from being just a typical Latin music tune. They add the psychedelic expression of spacerock to the haunting music from the Andes. And haunting is the best adjunct to descripe the third tune „Lucerito de la Manana“ which prominently features singer Luna Ersahin on lead vocals and mystical South American pan flutes. I am not certain if that keeps the guinea pig invasion away, to point at my favorite episode of South Park, but anyway, this song with even comes up with a touch of psychedelic jazz at the end due to freaky saxophone lines. Dub, psybient, cumbia join together for the next tracks and in opalescent colours JUNGLELYD play their mostly instrumental music to their audience, which consists of psychedelic fanatics, cumbia lovers and electronic music aficionadoes. One can find a whole new spiritual world in this futuristic exotica style. The jungle to which it drags the listener exists only on giant computer screens all around the listener’s mind. I can see the dancefloors in todays clubs steam and boil while dance hungry souls float through the night. The musicianship of this collective is extraordinarily high, the wind instruments showcase an unusual dedication and determination for additional colour effects on mainly electronic sound creations. And the sweet twangy guitars here and there bring back memories of times when the ideal world also found its expression in dreamy sounds. This album is an ongoing dream and you can make it yours if you dare to explore the digital jungle created by JUNGLELYD.

    ALGIERS

    There Is No Year

    Punk meets Soul: Algiers übertreffen sich auf dem 3. Album selbst. Die aus Atlanta stammende Industrial-Soul-Urgewalt Algiers veröffentlicht am 17.01.20 ihr drittes Album "There Is No Year". Die Band, die mittlerweile nicht nur gesangstechnisch zu einer starken Stimme geworden ist, hatte bereits im September mit dem Non-Album-Track "Can The Sub Bass Speak?" ein viel diskutiertes und meinungsstarkes Slam-Poetry Stück aufhören lassen , dem nun ein nicht minder pointierter Nachfolger folgt.àDas zweite Album "The Underside Of Power" von 2017 hatte der Band bei Publikum wie Kritikern zum endgültigen Durchbruch verholfen. Fast zwei Jahre tourten Franklin James Fisher, Lee Tesche, Ryan Mahan und Matt Tong (Ex-Bloc Party) um den kompletten Erdball und spielten u.a. als Support von Depeche Mode in ausverkauften Stadien. Der dringliche Sound von Algiers klingt auf dem neuen Album noch etwas fiebriger als auf den Vorgängern. Während Sänger und Multiinstrumentalist Franklin James Fisher seine geschliffenen Lyrics von der Kanzel herab predigt, ist der wummernde Synthesizer der nervöse Puls, um den herum der unverwechselbare Klang der Band kreist - angetrieben von der Rhythmussektion um Matt Tong und Ryan Mahan.àZiel war es mit dem dritten Album ein neues Level zu erreichen. Dafür holte man sich die Produzenten Randall Dunn (Sunn O))) und Ben Greenberg ins Studio, um dem futuristischen Post-Punk-R&B eine neue Textur verpassen. Industrial-Sound geladene Klangwelten, die an Scott Walker in seiner 4AD-Ära oder Iggy Pops und Bowies Berlin Phase erinnern, treffen auf eine Synthese aus Marvin Gaye und Fever Ray.

    SKA FLAMES

    Turn-up

    [engl] 1985 in Tokyo, the Japanese ska scene saw the dawn of a new era when Ska Flames run into the circuit. Back then there wasn't even a club scene, although the city had some ska hot dances where live music was happening and DJs were playing out their gems. In fact that was the only place in Japan where you can buy or even listen to the Jamaican ska music. Those ska musicians and DJs were seen as cool and hip players causing this movement by drowning themselves into the Skatalites records. That's when an English gentleman, goes under the name of Gaz Mayall, who discovered the Ska Flames while his visit in Japan. The band released their first album "Ska Fever" for Gaz Rockin' Blues in 1989, successfully debuting the London gig the same year spreading their name across the globe. What's interesting is their song titles, "Samurai", "Kurosawa" and even "Hot Sake". They are all seemingly named by Gaz who perhaps felt the Japanese romance to their music. The Ska Flames indeed is a band that deserves it all. The Ska Flames music is unconventional - like if they only play what they felt the best ska at times. It's manly, but rich in variety and humorous at the same time. Their first single "Tokyo Shot" sounds miraculously refined like Showa pops. When you talk about the live shows of the Ska Flames, it's like a Japanese local festival. Full of atmosphere and good vibes. Every band member stands on the stage like bosses, confidence would be the only word that can explain their presence. Legendary, it is also known that their gigs sell more booze than anyone else's. In 1989, when the Skatalies and Prince Buster toured Japan, the Ska Flames represented the Japanese ska scene receiving applause from every punter. Since then, they played the same roll supporting other Jamaican legends at numeros occasions, acting as a bridge between the two countries. It's been over thirty years since the beginning, meanwhile the Japanese ska scene has strongly been established and is as bold as ever. We cannot measure how much contribution the founding members such as Kenji Miyazaki, Koji Ise, Akihito Nakasu, Seiichi Nagai, Toru Shibagaki and Kei Miyanaga, as well as the next generation Michihisa Ishii, Kei Mizorogi, Jin Shimura and Naoki Tanaka have rendered to the Japanese music. The Ska Flames have been and will always be leading the Japanese ska music spreading the good vibes all around. Right about now, I would like to present this stunning album to all the great musicians of Jamaica and no other than Prince Buster. Naoki Ienaga (Dub Store Records)

    COLD MEAT

    Hot and Flustered

    [engl] “Agh! A fresh chop from the large dusty burning murder island: Cold is the Meat to beat. Perth’s finest flesh purveyors have upped their naughty game here across ten tracks of gleefully haughty punk. Hot and Flustered is somehow at once extremely camp and deadly serious. Ashley’s vengeful, elastic rasp smears menses down the screwfaces of vacuous tastemakers, climate change deniers, perennial street perverts, and of course, ZZ top fans. There’s some surprisingly poignant forays into melody (Beach Photography) and a good grip of sudden tempo fuckery to keep us well and truly hooked. Their signature chubby and defiant riffs under snarky bouncing toms formula extends well to the album form, creating a timely reminder that hate and fear are more than reasonable responses to our hell predicament. Let’s take comfort in collective ridicule. When it’s too hot to pogo because the sky is on fire, Cold Meat will let us writhe around in the dirt like the little piggies we are.” (Bryony Beynon) Well, after a slew of 7” offerings, Perth’s Cold Meat have finally hit us with a full length record. Much like their last few releases they’ve taken an amped up approach to 70s PUNK but this time round they offer ever so slightly more diversity. Ten tracks clocking in at just over 23 minutes and cut at 45rpm for maximum volume. Get hot and flustered.

    Ja, weiter geht's im Programm!

    Es gibt Platten, über die möchte man eigentlich keine Texte schreiben, weil jedes Wort schmerzt und Wunden aufreißt. Eine dieser Platten ist "Ja, weiter geht’s im Programm”, denn diese Platte ist eine Danksagung an Udo Schulze, leidenschaftlicher Konzertveranstalter, Kneipier, DJ, Schlenderer und Freund. Erschienen auf Udo’s Label Kunta Kinte Records, zusammengetragen von Weggefährten, Künstlern und Musikern. Müsste man ein Wahrzeichen neben dem Herkules für Kassel benennen, wäre es wohl die “Mutter”, stand in einem subkulturellen Begleitheft zur documenta. Und keine Person prägte diese Spelunke so wie Udo. Ausgangs- und Endpunkt für einen kulturellen Mikrokosmos der sich nicht nur auf die Kasseler Nordstadt beschränkte, aber hier ein Biotop vorfand, welches einzigartig in Deutschland, vielleicht auf der ganzen Welt war und ist. Udo war einer der Personen, der dieses Biotop mit seiner eigenen Art hegte, pflegte und prägte, Leute für neue Musik begeisterte und jetzt nach seinem viel zu frühen Tod schmerzlich vermisst wird. Vielleicht hilft diese Platte, denen die trauern Trost zu spenden und vielleicht denen, die Udo nicht kannten, zu verstehen, wir groß und wichtig Subkultur und kulturelle Vielfalt ist. In tiefer Liebe an einen besonderen Menschen. Wir danken dir für alles, Udo. Mach es gut, alter Freund. Nachtrag: Mit dem Gewinn dieser Platte werden in Udo's Sinne kulturellen Projekte in Kassel unterstützt.

Sound, Sprache, Live-Performance, Reflexion, es entsteht alles aus einer Eruption und vermittelt aus diesem Grund auch eine Ganzheitlichkeit die man ansonsten selten findet. Vielleicht auch deswegen die Bandentscheidung, einen Teil des Weges mit Sounds of Subterrania zu gehen. Das Thema der fünften Gewalt Single beschäftigt sich mit der Verdichtung der Unmöglichkeit und Unentrinnbarkeit unserer Existenz. Genau zwei Stichpunkte gibt Gewalt zum Verständnis. Punkt eins betrifft Verheimlichung: „Können wir unsere Einsamkeit überwinden? Wenn ja, scheint der Preis dafür der zu sein, sich füreinander zurechtzustutzen.

  • OSAMU KITAJIMA

    The Early Years

    [engl] These special editions are only available in presale - Only the preordered copies will be manufactured! Presale starts NOW and ENDS on 31st MAY 2019 – Release date end of June – order now. In late June 2019 Everland Music will release a mindblowing, strictly limited and hand numbered boxset with Osamu Kitajima's first 5 highly acclaimed and superrare albums. All 5 albums are taken from the ORIGINAL MASTERS, provided by Mr. Kitajima himself. All LPs come in embossed, coated and hotfoil printed superheavy 1200g/m2 carton covers. The 5 LPs will be housed in a beautiful box with magnetic lock, the box will also contain all inserts of the original LPs. About OSAMU KITAJIMA and his first 5 albums: Osamu Kitajima was born in Chigasaki, Japan on February 3rd 1949 and studied classical guitar and piano already in his childhood days. Later on in the 1960s, when Beat and Rock music became the hot stuff in the popular music circuit, he joined his cousin's band "The Launchers" with his brother, before graduating from university. Osamu's cousin, Y?z? Kayama, is a famous Japanese film actor and musician. In 1971, when Osamu was already a successful composer of TV advertising jingles, he moved to England for a year and developed an obsession for British Rock music, especially in the Psychedelic field. The Beatles, The Bee Gees, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple and The Zombies became his major influences and inspired him to start a solo career under the name „Justin Heathcliff“, which he adopted for it’s typical English sound. His 1971 eponymous album was a typical Pop Psyche effort for it’s time, but not long after he returned home to Japan, Osamu abandoned the English sounding name and further on merged Western Progressive and Electronic music with Japanese Folk sounds. Shinchugoku (1972) - This is a beautiful early 1970s Psychedelic Folk Rock effort, on which Osamu Kitajima cooperated with Fumio Miyashita (aka FAR OUT) and members oft he very popular FAR EAST FAMILY BAND, to create a bunch of mind altering colorful tunes with a mellow, yet intense approach. Benzaiten (1976) - This album is called his masterpiece by many aficionadoes of 1970s Progressive Rock, with it’s mixture of haunting Japanese Folk elements and skillfully played spacey Rock music that takes you on a spiritual journey to the center of your mind. Osamu (1977) - His third album marks another change in direction. Still Japanese elements and some haunting melodic Space Rock elements flow gently into another, but by incorporating Jazz, Funk and even Reggae, Osamu broadens the whole musical colour palette by far. Masterless Samurai (1980) - Osamu completely abandons the Space Rock aspects here and takes a turn into Jazzrock with a Progressive edge, that he still combines with these totally exotical sounding Japanese Folk elements. Dragon King (1981) - The step from Masterless Samurai to Dragon King has not been such a big one as it has been with the albums before. We experience a softer version of Osamus Jazzrock / Japanese Folk Fusion, that often even shows Soul Pop aspects, typical for it’s time.

    [engl] Reissue of the 2010 release on Sing Sing Records, NYC, USA. This is the first album of PROTEX, recorded in 1979-1980 for a release on Polydor records, but the record never came out because the label was interested in the next big thing, after punk rock.... The guys from Sing Sing Records unearthed this masterpiece and put it out in 2010, it was sold out and OOP soon afterwards. So nearly 10 years after you have the possibility to buy this classic for a normal price. The Bachelor Records release of "Strange Obsessions" is not only a simple repress, we managed to improve the sound and speed, thanks to Eric Brady, PLUS the artwork was changed a bit too!

    BITING TONGUES

    Live It

    [engl] From the same studio that brought us 48 Chairs (Gerry & The Holograms), The Fall and The Blue Orchids, while following the bona-fide bloodline between Danny And The Dressmakers, Toolshed and 808 State, the “difficult second album” by Biting Tongues (released on a minuscule cassette run by The Buzzcocks vanity label) has since become a near mythical artefact of Mancunian DIY. Cementing the path between the Absurd label’s kitchen sink synth assaults and Factory’s 99 informed downtown aspirations, Biting Tongues’ bass-driven, pounding-sounding, schizo-skronking, squat-pop put the emergence of punk-funk under a blinding interrogation bulb then hid round the corner evading secret police. Pouring three letter words like ESG, DAF, PIL and ACR into Ken Hollings Scrabble bag would result in a unique form of wordy dictaphone agit-rap and closed-circuit commentary to Graham Massey’s overqualified punk ensemble, laying foundations of future Manc activity using uncertified sand and gravel tactics, only to be safety checked every 38 years, or thereabout. Live It, the lost Biting Tongues album, still breathes. Including what the original members of this pioneering post-punk platoon unanimously consider their greatest work, Biting Tongues seldom-heard, second roll of the dice was presented to The Buzzcock’s own label New Hormones to coincide with full-length DIY debuts by Ludus, Dislocation Dance and a distinct tightening of pursestrings. Recorded on half-price studio time (in the midst of a multi-track repair session) and duped on to compact cassettes to keep pressing costs down, the album Live It even entirely bypassed the non-existent art-department before landing in the hands of a small readership of peculiar punk die-hards, instantly slipping into obscurity, evading official band future discographies and reaching an imaginary status in the history of unchartered Manc-manufactured messthetics. Now available, on vinyl, with two sleeve variations and extensive notes from Graham Massey and Ken Hollings, Live It is a welcome misplaced release and an essential addition to Finders Keepers’ Cache Cache catalog. Biting Tongues make wise heads!

    DER MODERNE MAN

    Unmodern

    Wiederauflage der zweiten DMM-LP von 1982 mit den Bonustracks von der Sandman Single. „(…), es brodelt von gewagten Arrangements, raspelnden, splitternden Gitarren, tribalen Rhythmen und gewitzten Texten“, schrieb Xao Seffcheque im Sounds 1982 zu der eben bei No Fun Records erschienen Platte „Unmodern“. Tatsächlich wurden Der Moderne Man von vielen Kritikern für ihre zweite Platte gefeiert und galten von nun an sogar als eine der wenigen wichtigen deutschen Bands. Das war nur folgerichtig, denn die Gruppe war nach diversen Umbesetzungen und Tourneen gewachsen und der Sound war kraftvoller und organischer als noch beim Vorgänger. Das lag zu einem guten Teil auch daran, dass nach dem Ausstieg von Ziggy XY der vormalige Bassist Mattus nun das Mikrophon übernommen hatte. Dennoch klingt auf „Unmodern“ nichts glattgebügelt und auf kommerzielle Verwertbarkeit getrimmt, sondern vielmehr ist es die Wandelbarkeit der Stimmungen, Texte und Musik, die die Eigenständigkeit von DMM ausmachen. Bei dem Opener „Anakonda“ verwebt sich der schlangengleich mäandernde Bass mit einem Text, der Erotik und Altes Testament verbindet. Der Titeltrack „Unmodern“ hingegen ist wohl als Parodie auf den damaligen Zeitgeist zu verstehen und erinnert an Kraftwerk oder Devo, trotzdem bleibt er mit verschmitztem Popappeal im Ohr. Auf dieser Platte sind etliche Perlen wie „Gurus & Geheimagenten“ und „Nicht warten“ (wieder) zu entdecken, die kompositorisch wie auch textlich wunderbar gelungen sind. Der Moderne Man klingen frisch, frech und selbstironisch, ohne sich dabei in kopflastiger Avantgarde zu verstricken! Um nochmal Xao Seffcheque zu zitieren: „Unmodern ist eine der modernsten deutschen Platten der letzten Zeit, zwischen Rock und Hose, Abenteuer und Freiheit, Hinz und Kunz, … einfach hervorragend.“ Das gilt auch heute noch.

    CONTRACTIONS

    Demain Est Annule

    [engl] Demain Est Annulé (tomorrow is canceled) is the first album from indie rockers Contractions. Written in Lyon, arranged in Besançon, Demain Est Annulé makes an intimate link between the future and the past of its creators. It sums up their previous experiences with their previous bands (Baton Rouge, Hawaii Samurai, The Irradiates) and brings into the light the massive musical knowledge / experiences they acquired through the years thanks to their involvement in the local indie / punk scene of their hometowns This album has been recorded and mixed by Bruno Germain at L'Epicerie Moderne in Lyon, France in the beginning of 2019, then mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control) in Melbourne, Australia in may 2019. It got inspired by melodies coming from Kiwi Pop bands + contemporary indie garage bands such as Parquet Courts, The Babies or Reigning Sound, mixed with raw energy inherited from their DIY punk background and a common worship for Hot Snakes and 60s UK/US garage bands. Contractions though know they won't bring anything new. Because novelty is not really the point here… behind its obvious simplicity, the songwriting is very subtle. Every song has a hook. Arrangements are precise. The melodic vocals are often on the edge of being in tune. Every element of the songs and their recording actually point in the unique direction of looking for the genuine emotion. There also is in Julien's lyrics this disturbing and familiar sense of realism in the abstraction. They go through personal / intimate topics (Juste Derrière Chez Moi, Un autre Temps, Dans la peau), to this will of staying far from the dominant mass and praising the underground cultures (Passe Par le Detour, Un jour qui traîne). There is also social reflexions about the last riots / social movements in France (Trace En Ville, Demain Est Annulé) and last but not least about sexual assaults in the punk community (Rien n'est Acquis), which is a painful topic to deal with.

    VASSILIU, PIERRE

    Voyage

    [engl] "Voyage", to Pierre Vassiliu, was not only the title of an album of his, but also a philosophy of life. Travels were not for vacation or rest. They were synonyms of meetings, new music and sometimes, simply, life. These experiences around the world nourished his work, and his career allowed him to set foot on every continent. But his most beautiful travels took place in recording studios. "My parents showed up on a beach, with a camper. They landed there and we stayed for years." Sitting by a lake in Sète, Lena Vassiliu recounts how her parents Pierre and Laura chose an empty spot in the Casamance region to enjoy a few years loving each other under the sun. The legitimate child of this trip, she was conceived in Senegal. At the time, her mother said: "I want to give birth standing on my feet, holding a tree, in the sacred wood where only women can enter!" Today her mother adds: "Pierre was reluctant, so we ended up in a private hospital in Dakar." Laura Vassiliu still lives in the same apartment in Sète. Folon's original drawing for the artwork of the ‘Voyage’ LP is framed in the living room, making Pierre’s ghost more present. Laura remembers well the beautiful moments, and travels were a part of them. "Not only the moments were beautiful. On trips, he was more beautiful as well." Pierre felt good turning his back on France – which was probably already ugly –, turning his back on the fickle, mercantile record industry, as well as on an entourage that recognized his mustache but not his talent. A traveler out of obligation in his youth (Algeria and its war), he became a traveler by taste and acquired an interest in people, an essential for anyone willing to travel the Globe. He also traveled out of necessity. When smiles faded, a boat, a plane, and bye bye idiots. And he brought all those trips back into his songs. "Anytime we traveled anywhere, music attracted us. Pierre sensed the rhythm of the country we were in and he found a song." Laura Vassiliu

    GASC, JULIEN

    L'Appel de la Foret

    [engl] Confession, fiction, and observation. This is how the trajectory drawn by Julien Gasc seems to evolve from one album to the next. While Cerf, Biche et Faon took the form of a diary and Kiss Me, You Fool! that of a collection of stories, L'Appel de la Forêt concludes this trilogy in a tender and spontaneous dialogue, broaching the present with clairvoyance through melodies with bright glimmers. More adventurous than its predecessors, which respectively took root in the south of France and in London, this third chapter offers a kaleidoscopic vision, multiplying geographies and temporalities to ingrain itself in the moment all the better. Through a collection of dances of diverse origins, Julien places himself at the heart of the everyday – embracing it, sublimating it, and calling for a transfiguration to escape its imminent disaster. His voice circulate through this fragmented horizon; it is raw and immediate, sometimes so stark that it disappears, making way for its interlocutor, like an invitation to occupy the space shaped by his ritornello. Emancipated from his dandy’s costume, the rare moments where he puts it on again are to more effectively elude it. The address is deliberately frank and above all benevolent. Beyond an amorous chant d’amour, it is an ode to freedom and to the full awareness of our human condition that unfolds before us. An invitation, devoid of cynicism, to take off of our ‘social animal’ mask and decolonise the world around us – to stop wanting to possess at all costs and let those we love be free. This album is a roadside companion, with no dogma or precepts, and a simple motto: Stay joyful.
