CTD Press Update 7/5!

Now Available Exclusively/Semi Exclusively from CTD:

FEATURED:

Com Truise
“Galactic Melt”
Ghostly International: gi138
PITCHFORK 7.3!!:
“…with its staccato, bonus level synth stabs, keening psychedelia and 1980s-drenched drum sounds, Melt is still very identifiably Truise.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15604-galactic-melt/

SPIN 7/10:
“Boards of Canada meets Vangelis….”
http://www.spin.com/reviews/com-truise-galactic-melt-ghostly-international

BBC BEST ALBUMS OF JUNE 2011:
“(Com Truise) demonstrates a sight more depth than a lot of stuff that's been tagged as chillwave.”
http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcmusic/2011/07/the_best_albums_of_june_2011.html

URB 4/5:
“Galactic Melt manages to be both dark and upbeat at the same time. It’s filled with well-composed and highly aesthetic tracks. Com Truise makes synthetic and emotional music, nostalgic and spaced out like a German or Russian Sci-fi score, and the songs melt into each other without sounding repetitive and recycled. 10 tracks of pure seamless joy.”
http://www.urb.com/2011/07/05/com-truise-galactic-melt/

FLAVORPILL 10 UNDERRATED 2011 ALBUMS YOU NEED TO HEAR:
“this sci-fi analog synth workout is an absolute belter of a debut album from New Jersey producer Seth Haley (aka Com Truise).”
http://flavorwire.com/190957/10-underrated-2011-albums-you-need-to-hear/8#post_body

XLR8R Preview of “Polyhurt”:
http://www.xlr8r.com/mp3/2011/04/polyhurt

PITCHFORK Forkcast of “Polyhurt”:
“...Seth Haley, aka Com Truise, is gearing up to release the "Fairlight" single via new label Ghostly International on May 3. "Polyhurt" is one laser-cut slice from it.”
http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/15677-polyhurt/

URB - TOP 10 DETROIT ACTS YOU HAVEN’T HEARD:
“...now is a great time to be catching Seth Haley’s Com Truise project. His mix of downtempo breaks with some of the spaciest synths to be found produces auditory sci-fi.”
http://www.urb.com/2011/05/16/top-10-movement-detroit-acts-you-havent-likely-heard/

LOS ANGELES TIMES:
“It conjures a Macintosh nostalgia for futures dreamed up decades ago. Synthesizers bright as lasers and drums loose as dust....Ideal summer music.”
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/music_blog/2011/04/com-truise-flash-beta-eyes-set-to-release-debut-on-ghostly-international.html

PITCHFORK Forkcast of “Cathode Girls”:

STILL FRESH & OUT NOW!

Cliffie Swan
“Memories Come True”
Drag City: dc451
PITCHFORK 7.3!!:
“Just as the disc's knotty pop lead-in often calls to mind Fleetwood Mac without ever quite going full McVie, there's something about this mid-LP mix of vocal serenity and bleary guitar crunch that suggests they've been rummaging around in the mid-90s buzzbin. But they've gotten so good at couching even their more obvious influences in threads of ambling melody that any easy comparisons seem somehow beside the point. That's a big shift from Rites, an album that seemed most impressive for the derring-do of its genre-stacking. Echoes of everything from the Breeders to Black Sabbath may ring throughout Memories now and again, but there's a serenity and self-possession driving these tunes that isn't on loan from any other band.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15573-memories-come-true/

Ty Segall
“Goodbye Bread”
Drag City: dc479
PITCHFORK 8.1!:
“In Goodbye Bread, his first full-length for Drag City, Segall has embraced singer-songwriter craft wholeheartedly. While garage rock O.G.s like the Troggs and the Stooges continue to be an influence, Segall has turned in a relatively calm effort here, choosing to downshift into slower tempos and cleaner sounds, evoking instead the work of John Lennon, Neil Young, and Marc Bolan. Heavyweights. But what makes Goodbye Bread such a success is that we get an even keener sense of what a Ty Segall song sounds like and what that means.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15557-goodbye-bread/

FADER:
“The way Segall glides through the spaces from all-out raucous rock-mode to mellow and mild-mannered and everything in between and simply owns all of it. This ability mixed with a readily apparent improvement in songwriting means that though Goodbye Bread is no doubt impressive on repeat listens. Whatever comes next could be scary good.”
http://www.thefader.com/2011/06/20/the-tripwire-ty-segalls-gliding-through-all-things-rock/

DUSTED:
“Segall is still young, and appears to be moving at an accelerated rate. Each record is better than the one before it. This isn’t something you get to watch every day. This is someone entering his prime, on the cusp of finding a voice. If you aren’t already, the time to pay attention is now.”
http://dustedmagazine.com/reviews/6493

WASHINGTON POST:
“Segall has both diversified and focused his sound, making for his best album to date….”
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/click-track/post/quick-spins-ty-segall-iceage-justin-moore/2011/06/21/AGxtOTeH_blog.html

ADEQUACY.NET:
“Goodbye Bread is a fitting development on an impeccable path. The depth accomplished through five albums is obviously grand and it’s definitely as if Segall is purely improving with every passing year.”
http://www.adequacy.net/2011/06/ty-segall-–-goodbye-bread/

Nadler, Marissa
“S/T”
Box of Cedar: boc001
NPR FIRST LISTEN STREAMING “S/T”:
“Marissa Nadler has drawn a big response...Her dreamy, fragile folk songs are revered among an assortment of tastemakers, but they haven't yet broken through to a larger audience. Her new self-titled album should help change all that.'”
http://www.npr.org/2011/06/05/136829503/first-listen-marissa-nadler-marissa-nadler

SPIN BEST NEW ARTIST FOR JUNE 2011:
SPIN Music Editor Charles Aaron says: “There are several mixtape keepers on this album, where her willingness to be openly vulnerable, and to expose her voice to the point that it even sounds shaky or strained, pays off in wonderfully poignant drama, especially when the slide guitar sighs just so.”
http://www.spin.com/gallery/spins-5-best-new-artists-june?page=4#main

PITCHFORK FORKCAST OF “The Sun Always Reminds Me Of You”:
“‘The Sun Always Reminds Me Of You’ is a pedal steel-wrapped heartbreaker….”
http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/15795-the-sun-always-reminds-me-of-you/

PITCHFORK VIDEO OF “Baby, I Will Leave You In The Morning”:
http://pitchfork.com/news/42488-watch-new-marissa-nadler-video/

PITCHFORK FORKCAST OF “Baby, I Will Leave You In The Morning”:
“This is the sound of an artist coming into her own.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/12146-baby-i-will-leave-you-in-the-morning/

PITCHFORK NEW RELEASE INFO:
“...Nadler says, 'It's the most honest, natural record I've ever written... I'm no longer hiding. The mystery still exists in the music as an aesthetic tool, but the songs cut harder because of the vocal mix, with more varied colors than my other records.'”
http://pitchfork.com/news/42014-marissa-nadler-announces-new-album/

NO DEPRESSION:
“There is a lot of talent, strength and intelligence in this woman….”
http://www.nodepression.com/profiles/blogs/the-demystification-of-marissa

CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND:
"The dream-folk songstress possesses long, flowing hair, classic beauty, a lush, emotive voice, and crafts songs with equal parts pain and sweetness."

Diskjokke
“Sagara”
Smalltown Supersound: sts204
NEW YORK TIMES Preview of Sagara:
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/12/arts/music/new-cds-by-bbc-woods-diskjokke-and-youssou-ndour.html?_r=2

PITCHFORK FORKCAST OF “Pantup”:
http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/15679-panutup/

EXCLAIM!:
“...if the lead track "Panutup" is like the rest of the album, it will be one unique listening experience.”
http://exclaim.ca/News/diskjokke_returns_with_sagara_lp

SOME KIND OF AWESOME:
“I don't know what the heck is going on in Norway but I do not care. The electronic music that comes out of that country is RIDICULOUS!.”
http://www.somekindofawesome.com/journal/2011/4/22/download-diskjokke-panutup.html

CHART ATTACK:
“There's no space for judgment while you're listening; its songs need to be absorbed en masse. Whether or not you're willing give it a second spin may hinge on how good your headphones are. The right cans pick up a lot of subtleties in this disc.”
http://www.chartattack.com/reviews/2011/jun/15/diskjokke-—-sagara

TIME OUT NEW YORK:
“Sagara’s not a total break from his past work, as Dyrdahl’s repertoire has always had a sedate, hypnotic, and richly melodic edge to it. But it does perhaps show a promising evolution in the path that this evolving artist is taking—at the very least, he’s picked up a few more tricks for his next cosmic-disco odyssey.”
http://newyork.timeout.com/music-nightlife/nightlife/1570543/diskjokke

V/A
“Wallahi Le Zein: Wezin, Jackwar & Guitar Boogie From The Islamic Republic of Mauritania”
Locust/Latitude: latitude07
PITCHFORK 8.0!!:
“Wallahi Le Zein is somewhat similar to a Sublime Frequencies radio or field recording release, except that this has a much deeper interest in the musicological, historical, and cultural underpinnings of what's going on here. Lavoie isn't just putting this stuff out there for you - the liner notes are an educational document reflecting years of research and real, focused passion for the subject matter, rather than a basic interest in otherness. This is in some ways this compilation's greatest gift - this is the first curated collection of unfiltered Mauritanian guitar music ever, and I'm glad it's been introduced with such thoroughness and care.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15470-wallahi-le-zein-wezin-jakwar-and-guitar-boogie-from-the-islamic-republic-of-mauritania/

These Trails
“S/T”
Drag City: dc463
PITCHFORK 7.5:
“Primarily written and performed by singer-songwriters Margaret Morgan and Patrick Cockett, the album has long circulated among fans of obscure psych-folk, and it has been reissued several times in perhaps-not-entirely-legit versions. The album's reputation is well-earned, as These Trails is a lovely and incredibly evocative slice of Pacific folk-rock, and Drag City has performed a good service by finally reissuing the album in a handsome new authorized edition..”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15508-these-trails/

Pechenga
“Helt Borte”
Smalltown Supersound: sts202
ALL MUSIC:
“Helt Borte is absolutely haunting, entrancing, and lush, and not in a cheap or facile way, either. The basic musical methodology throughout, rests on sinuous, slow-moving melodies and deep, thick synthesizer drones, often eerily dark and brooding….”
http://allmusic.com/album/helt-borte-r2180714/review

ALTERED ZONES TRACK REVIEW of “Gitaro”
“‘Gitaro’ comes to us as a taste of the purported subzero weather inspired sounds that the album holds. Will this be your gateway drug to ambient music? Regardless, it’s certainly another healthy mutation of that genre.”

http://alteredzones.com/posts/1153/pechenga-gitaro/
STEREO SUBVERSION TRACK REVIEW of “Gitaro”
“The music makes me feel warm and fuzzy like hot chocolate with a shot of whiskey.”
http://stereosubversion.com/pechenga-gitaro

Newbury, Mickey
“The American Trilogy (4xCD Box Set)”
“Looks Like Rain”
“Frisco Mabel Joy”
“Heaven Help The Child”
“Better Days”
Drag City: dc485, dc474, dc475, dc476, dc477
ROLLING STONE 4/5:
“His grainy vocal tenderness in San Francisco Mabel Joy evokes the combined haunting of Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake, while An American Trilogy is, in Newbury's grip, patriotic anguish for a country at war with itself.”
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/an-american-trilogy-box-set-20110621

PITCHFORK BEST NEW REISSUE 8.6!!:
“Every word or line or stanza complements the others and shades their meanings, contributing crucially to the whole.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15473-an-american-trilogy/

MOJO 4 STARS:
“Three of his early albums, possibly his best, are collected here in a lovingly conceived box set.”
http://www.mojo4music.com

UNCUT - REISSUE OF THE MONTH (JUNE 2011):
“The least his memory deserves is to hear the songs the way he heard them, and this set represents a chance that should be seized lustily...An overdue monument to an overlooked songwriter.”
http://www.uncut.co.uk/

THE WIRE:
“His songs feel like prayers for the brokenhearted many, as if he has consigned himself to perpetual heartache to imbue the songs with a crueler reality.”
http://www.thewire.co.uk

RECORD COLLECTOR:
“This exquisite collection offers a more fitting context for Newbury’s neglected recordings - once heard, forever smitten. It’s impossible to resist the emotional pull of his voice and artistry.”
http://www.recordcollectormag.com/reviews/review-detail/6973

NO DEPRESSION:
“There is only one word that comes to mind for making this package so detailed, so intimate, and so passionate in the little things that made Newbury’s music so endearing to those who got it - and that word is Love.”
http://www.nodepression.com/profiles/blogs/an-american-trilogy-mickey

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER:
“An American Trilogy is an excellent introduction to the mind and music of Mickey Newbury. The three albums contained here form the highlights of an often overlooked career that is well worth resurrecting.”
http://www.seattlepi.com/default/article/Music-Review-Mickey-Newbury-An-American-1387959.php

Antietam
“Tenth Life”
Carrot Top Records: saki052
BIG TAKOVER:
“...ten tracks of good old-fashioned guitar rock – crunchy, loud and tuneful...there are few rock groups as dependable as Antietam.”
http://www.bigtakeover.com/recordings/antietam-tenth-life-carrot-top

CHICAGO TRIBUNE:
“…[Tenth Life] is among its most direct, 10 fat-free songs gorged on melody, with typically thoughtful lyrics that consider midlife as both a challenge and an opportunity.”
http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune.com/turn_it_up/2011/06/antietams-tara-key-on-a-mission-to-claim-rock-for-my-generation.html

ADEQUACY:
“…Tenth Life is another solid, memorable and crucial piece in a jigsaw-like canon that refuses to be finished without an age-defying fight.”
http://www.adequacy.net/2011/05/antietam-tenth-life/

CYCLIC DEFROST:
“Tenth Life is at once a continuation of the classic first-generation indie rock sound and – at its core – just an amazing guitar record.”
http://www.cyclicdefrost.com/blog/2011/03/31/antietam-–-tenth-life-carrot-top/

Bathgate, Chris
“Salt Year”
Quite Scientific: qsr021
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND:
“Chris Bathgate owns the voice and the melancholy of someone twice his age, and Salt Year packages enough charm to spare.”
http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/04/album-review-chris-bathgate-salt-year/

AV CLUB:
“...there’s a welcome hint of triumph in the personal trials Bathgate and band swaddle in layers of stormy guitar, lonesome fiddle, and clattering percussion.”
http://www.avclub.com/articles/chris-bathgate-salt-year,55083/


STILL AVAILABLE
Implodes
“Black Earth”
Kranky: krank156
PITCHFORK 7.5:
“...the most interesting thing about Black Earth is what it bodes for Implodes' future. If they can already mold this many sounds into the same tonal shape, imagine what further sonic territory they might someday place their stamp on.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15465-black-earth/

STEREOGUM "BAND TO WATCH":
“At times these songs feels more dire or dirge-like — the beautiful riverside sunset on the cover comes with a woman wielding a knife — but each of the 11 tracks is beautifully melodic. Most are patiently catchy, darkly propulsive.”
http://stereogum.com/641731/band-to-watch-implodes/franchises/band-to-watch/

DROWNED IN SOUND:
“Implodes will do fine so long as they keep carving out bleak soundscapes that are as atmospheric, otherworldly and starkly beautiful as Black Earth”
http://drownedinsound.com/releases/16191/reviews/4142592

FENSEPOST:
“Put on headphones, crank up Black Earth, close your eyes and watch the nightmare that your subconscious produces on the backs of your eyelids. It will be terrifying and brilliant.”
http://www.fensepost.com/main/2011/04/05/implodes-black-earth-album-review/

Arborea
“Red Planet”
Strange Attractors Audio House: saah067
NPR WORLD CAFE NEXT:
“Shanti and Buck Curran live in the western mountains of Maine and are already names in psychedelic music circles. The recently released Red Planet, the band's fourth LP, will likely expand on that audience.”

http://www.npr.org/2011/05/02/135924916/arborea-on-world-cafe-next
PORTLAND PHOENIX:
“...Shanti and Buck Curran also seem to exist outside of time itself, both inhabiting a world that never actually was and pacing their songs so that they seem to make time elastic.”

http://portland.thephoenix.com/music/119232-arborea-sail-across-a-fossil-sea
PORTLAND HERALD PRESS:
“The project enjoys an utterly unteachable gift in Shanti's weightless vocals. Her instrument is rich and trembling bellows, capable of holding gauzy pitches on clouds of air.”

http://www.pressherald.com/life/go/arboreas-red-planet-beguiles-and-rewards-the-soulful-listener-_2011-04-21.html?searchterm=Arborea
DELTA-SLIDER.COM:
“After 51 minutes of being under the Arborea spell you might wonder where you’ve been. It’s a time spent in another world, it feels a bit frightening but irresistible.”

http://delta-slider.blogspot.com/2011/04/arborea-red-planet.html
UNCUT PLAYLIST FOR THE WEEK OF April 20:

http://www.uncut.co.uk/blog/index.php?blog=6&p=1683&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1#mor
Depper, Dave
“The Ram Project”
Jackpot Records: jpr7110
MAGNET MAGAZINE:
“He's penetrating, he's ironic, he's intimate, he's elusive, he's distant and calcified, he's vulnerable and warm-- it's all there, album to album, song to song, and sometimes line to line.”
http://www.magnetmagazine.com/2011/04/29/what-record-are-you-most-looking-forward-to-next-week-20/

DELI MAGAZINE ALBUM OF THE MONTH FOR MAY 2011:
“I honestly must admit that the echo from another room of Dave’s voice hanging in the air during 'Long Haired Lady' sparked such a feeling that made me forget that it wasn’t Paul behind the microphone.”
http://national.thedelimagazine.com/5438/album-month-ram-project-dave-depper

DELI MAGAZINE (REVIEW):
“Portland's own multi-project-multi-instrumentalist Dave Depper has taken this sweet lamb with horns under his musical wings to create quite the cover album, full of intricate liberties that sets The Ram Project apart, just enough to give you chills.”
http://nyc.thedelimagazine.com/4805/ram-project

Callahan, Bill
“Apocalypse”
Drag City: dc450
PITCHFORK 8.0!:
“He's penetrating, he's ironic, he's intimate, he's elusive, he's distant and calcified, he's vulnerable and warm-- it's all there, album to album, song to song, and sometimes line to line.”
http://www.pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15285-apocalypse/

NEW YORK TIMES:
“This is what Mr. Callahan does: put a big and mysterious idea in a modest place. He has gotten better and better at it. 'The thing that’s uniquely his,' said the singer-songwriter John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats in a recent e-mail, 'is to sort of smuggle in scenes of remarkable emotional and, I gotta say, spiritual weight within these fairly light constructions.'”
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/10/arts/music/bill-callahan-apocalypse-on-drag-city-label.html?_r=2&ref=arts

DUSTED:
“Sometimes I Wish I Were An Eagle is like a Technicolor epic — brass accents, swelling strings and an odd, lingering hollowness at its core. Apocalypse, on the other hand, is more like an 80-minute Ranown picture - sinuous, slippery, less accessible, more satisfying.”
http://www.dustedmagazine.com/reviews/6362

DROWNED IN SOUND:
“…That it [Apocalypse] happens to be both heartbreaking and life affirming is just something we’ve come to expect.”
http://drownedinsound.com/releases/16135/reviews/4142442

Baby Dee
“Regifted Light”
Drag City: dc462
PITCHFORK 8.0!:
“...Dee is simply a musician making very earnest art about a very unusual life. Regifted Light doesn't seem built to shock or cajole, but to connect with all sorts of people, and to last.”
http://www.pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15240-regifted-light/

OPTION:
“This is the magic of Baby Dee: she illuminates her music - however you define it - with a mix of childlike exuberance and hard-won experience few others, in any discipline, can match”
http://option-magazine.com/2011/03/29/baby-dee-regifted-light-drag-city/

DUSTED:
“The darkness of gender dysmorphia may indeed be vast, but given the right illuminating gift, Baby Dee proves there’s still light nonetheless -- even for her own chamber music.”
