fyfe dangerfield – fly yellow moon 2010

Following Guillemots 2008 album ‘Red’, mercurial singer-songwriter Fyfe
Dangerfield has used the window of time created to spread his wings and
lovingly record his beautiful debut solo album ‘Fly Yellow Moon’,.

‘Fly Yellow Moon’ is written entirely by Fyfe and produced by Adam
Noble in Urchin Studios, London the same studios where Guillemots
recorded their first classic E.P. ‘I Saw Such Things In My Sleep’. The
10-track record startles from start to finish, magnificently eclectic,
warm and uplifting, haunting and melodic it sounds like a classic
upon its first listen.

Opening track ‘When You Walk In The Room’ (Free digitally track out
November 9th) strikes the perfect chord for the following nine sublime
tracks, capturing Fyfe’s truly remarkable voice, while flaunting his
daring, expansive and mystical songwriting.

The record flows with highlights including from the beautiful ‘So Brand
New’, the joyous ‘Faster Than The Setting Sun’ to the scintillating
‘She Needs Me’ (First single out January 11th) and the stunningly
reflective ‘Don’t Be Shy’.

Fyfe recorded the album in five days in what he describes as ‘the best
ever little studio’, which ended up being the happiest days he has ever
spent in studio land. The songs were written over a 12-month period in
snatched moments after soundchecks, before nights out, and after
moments of unmitigated lovestruck bliss.

He met up with Bernard Butler to mix a couple of songs (‘She Needs Me’,
‘Faster Than The Setting Sun’) on a 1960s-mixing desk to colour the
record in a different shade. The rest of the tracks remained just as
they were from their first recording session. “It often sounded best
this way, says Fyfe. “Capturing the moment they were recorded and not
being painted over too much.”

“A good time was had by all,” notes Fyfe, and we hope you do too!

ryan adams – gold 2001 (weekend classic album)

ryan adams

The “it” boy of early-’00s roots-rock, former Whiskeytown leader Ryan Adams has responded to the mountain of hype surrounding him with an arrogance worthy of his idol, mid-’60s Bob Dylan. Accordingly he follows his stripped-down solo debut with a two-disc, fully produced set that finds him grasping for the mantle of alt-country messiah. GOLD picks up where Whiskeytown’s swan song FAITHLESS STREET left off; a step removed from the country-rock hard line but still full of rootsy, organic, Band-like warmth.

The up-tempo opening tune “New York, New York” recalls vintage Steve Forbert, while “Answering Bell” sounds like David Gray fronting the aforementioned Band on a rewritten “The Weight.” The epic, acoustic guitar-based ballad “Nobody’s Girl” is one of the more overtly Dylanesque pieces here, and while trying to overshadow Zimmy is a fool’s errand no matter how big your britches, one has to admire Adams for the considerable chutzpah necessary to even take up the task. Whether you believe he’s the Gram Parsons of the 21st century or not, its that undeniable spirit and ambition that lay at the heart of GOLD’s appeal.

tim cohen – two sides of tim cohen 2009

pic

As if fronting super hyped garage rockers the Fresh & Onlys wasn’t enough, or being the one man in one man weirdo black metal horde AmocomA, or playing in Black Fiction and Three Leafs or any of a number of other local bands, or even being the back up band for psych rock legend Rodriguez, well, apparently none of that is enough, as here’s a brand new full length from Mr. Tim Cohen, he of all the above mentioned rockness.

Seems Tim Cohen’s a busy man these days, with the Fresh & Onlys last LP barely dying down to a simmer and an upcoming release impending on Woodsist; hey why not throw in a solo album as well? The Two Sides of Tim Cohen strays far from the work Cohen’s been doing lately with Fresh & Onlys, mixing a strong slice of loner psych into the haunted mysticism that permeated his previous work in Black Fiction. There are bursts of pop that peek through the rain soaked windows of Cohen’s songwriting, occasionally letting a little light into his bittersweet temperament, but for the most part the album burns a slow path through the minor key. As a result it doesn’t clinch on the first listen, or even the second, instead Two Sides reveals itself to be a slow grower over repeated listens. Each new layer peeled back from Cohen’s exterior reveals another marbled tear, another queasy calmness that echoes not only Tim’s past, but your own as well. Piece by piece the album pounds, stitches and tapes back together the human psyche only to offer it up to the hounds that tore it apart in the first place.

langhorne slim – be set free 2009

langhorne slim

Something of a one-man mixture of the Cramps, Beck’s early indie records (circa One Foot in the Grave), and the soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou, singer and guitarist Langhorne Slim offers a sardonic, modern take on traditional folk, country, and blues. Fancifully dubbed “the bastard son of Hasil Adkins” in some of his early press releases, Langhorne Slim is in fact a Pennsylvania native who resettled in Brooklyn after his graduation from the State University of New York at Purchase. After a self-released demo garnered some local and online attention (as well as a semi-regular gig as the opening act for indie novelty outfit the Trachtenberg Family Slideshow Players), Langhorne Slim signed with the indie label Narnack Records and released his first EP, Electric Love Letter, in March 2004. The more varied and band-oriented full-length When the Sun’s Gone Down followed in the spring of 2005. Much touring ensued over the next year, including support dates with Lucero and Murder by Death, with drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and upright bassist Paul DeFiglia (aka “the War Eagles”) in tow. In 2006, Langhorne Slim signed with the larger (though still not major) label V2 Records, which released the all-new EP Engine in September of that year, as the singer was finishing recording his second full album, produced by Josh Ritter’s keyboardist, Sam Kassirer. The deal fell through, however, and the band was left labelless. Langhorne Slim found a new home on Kemado Records, who released the self-titled album in the spring of 2008
