Panicsville “A Dragonfly For Each Corpse” LP+7″

Smeraldina-Rima 10
Edition of 400, heavy-weight vinyl with screenprinted open sleeve.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

A Dragonfly For Each Corpse is a record that stands no daylight. A feverish nightmare of an album, dragging us into a brown paper bag —ferocious cannibal jungle ambience seeping through— till we’re cast down some stairs into a cellar made out of spit. A twirling folkballad sung by a ghost made out of chewing gum turns into a symphony of typing fingers, ticking clocks and slamming car doors, like a noirish soundtrack to the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby, accompanied by squeaking stuffed animals as eyewitnesses. A record that feels like a horror franchise turning into understated drama, where mourners and killers change places in unexpected and drastic fashion. With the collaboration of John Wiese, Josephine Foster, MV Carbon, Thymme Jones.” —w

Peeesseye + Talibam! 2xLP

Smeraldina-Rima 13
Only 600 copies available, artwork by Rachel Lowther.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

“Talibam! (Kevin Shea on drums, Matt Mottel on keyboards) and Peeesseye (Jaime Fennelly on electronics, Chris Forsyth on guitars and Fritz Welch on drums) have been pals and Evolving Ear labelmates for a while now, so it was only a matter of time before they all got together and let it rip. And rip this certainly does, driven on by the double-barrelled percussion attack, underpinned by Fennelly’s drones and scribbled all over by Mottel and Forsyth, whose wild gonzo soloing is a happy and healthy reminder that one-chord jamming was part and parcel of American alt.rock before the word alt.rock even existed, back when Fugs roamed the Earth and Angus MacLise still turned up for rehearsals, back when these laddies were still twinkles in their daddies’ eyes. Of course, it’s not all one-chord rock —sometimes they dispense with chords altogether and dive headlong into the primeval murky soundpool, with scant regard for whatever sharp rocks and nasty beasties might be lurking under the surface. Loud, messy, dangerous and glorious.” —Dan Warburton

Alex Monk “Indiscreet Mirror” LP (Red / Blue)

According to its creator, Alex Monk‘s fourth album —the follow-up to 2010’s wonderful The Safety Machine— “explores the tension between innocence and experience that late adolescence can evoke.” I would say, however, that this is a very personal exploration of a very specific adolescence; one endured in a rural village or small town, introverted and largely alone, one more absorbed in nature, landscape and the changing seasons than social pressures, career ambitions and drunken nights out. Not that I’m suggesting that Alex Monk was a clean-limbed Boy Scout solely occupied by bracing country walks and pure thoughts of a subtly religious nature; the game-changing discoveries of sex, hash and LSD are surely the engines that keep this record turning, buried and unmentioned as they are. But if you’re looking for a well-observed dissection and reflection of contemporary urban teenage existence, then you should probably look elsewhere. If, however, your transition from childhood to young adulthood can be reflected in an impressionistic collage of dream and memory, a sonic patchwork of acid folk and ambient electronics, then step through the looking glass and join Alex Monk on the other side. […]
— Ben Graham, The Quietus

Hyena “Outside, The Great Drought” LP

Smeraldina-Rima 18
NY-based multi-instrumentalist Colby Nathan delivers a debut that contains a jumpy and highly neurotic form of outsiderpop combining bebopdrenched rants and surrealistic torchsongs with lush arrangements that constantly test the limits of self-control and good reason. “Outside, The Great Drought” offers baroque exuberance and teenage angst through sixties inspired craftsmanship that keeps spiraling out of this worldly realm. Think Jonathan Richman, Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks.
