Let Them Talk cover art
Agent Ribbons Let Them Talk
Label: Antenna Farm
Format: 7"
Catalog Number: antf540
Release Date: September 11, 2012
This dynamic duo whose sound has been described as "Girls in the Garage doing Three Penny Opera" is back. Baroque string arrangements ran up against a garage pop sensibility for a cleverly melodic & unique sound. A return to the band's rawer earlier recordings, w/ classic Spector-esque stacked girl-group harmonies balancing on top of a raucous rock foundation. Incld download

Release Date: October 02, 2012
10/02 STREET DATE. Jessica Bailiff spent much of 2011 writing & recording "At the Down-Turned Jagged Rim Of The Sky" in her spartan home studio. Down-tuned, distorted bass guitar adds a new color to her palette, but familiar ones also come into play: fuzzed & delayed electric guitar, organ, piano, cello, & drums. Noisy pop-tinged love songs nestle slyly in a bed of off-kilter lullabies & dark, metallic waltzes. NO EXPORT TO UK/EU

Release Date: October 02, 2012
**EXCLUSIVE!! 10/02 STREET DATE. ERAAS is a tribal atmospheric quartet based in Brooklyn led by its 2 founding members Robert Toher & Austin Stawiarz which arose from the ashes of New England-based project Apse in 2011, forming with the desire to create more ritualistic & darker themes. ERAAS decided to retreat to an area steeped in history & its own distinct atmosphere - all deserted hill towns & melancholy beauty - to make this record. The decision paid rich creative dividends - this is an album that's heavy with both an ominous mood & a certain orchestral grandeur. NO EXPORT OUTSIDE OF NORTH AMERICA

Coda (For WK) cover art
Mathieu, Stephan Coda (For WK)
Label: 12k
Format: MCD
Catalog Number: 12k2024cd
Release Date: September 18, 2012
CD-EP (clocking in at 20 minutes exactly) is a coda to A Static Place (2011, 12k), created w/ his highly focused setup of two mechanical-acoustic gramophones & computer. Dedicated to the legendary "quiet" pianist Wilhelm Kempff, whose 1927 recordings of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 26 Les Adieux from a double 12" 78rpm set on Brunswick were used as input for an autogenerative process. His process emphasizes the archaic beauty & texture of this early media while using the original tones for the body of this rich extended work that is both hypnotic & grainy
 
Delta Blues cover art
McDowell, Mississippi Fred Delta Blues
Label: Arhoolie
Format: LP
Catalog Number: ahl1021lp

With nods to both classic folk-rock (Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Carole King, Emmylou Harris) & their contemporaries (Gillian Welch, My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes), they challenge existing traditional folk music forms w/ arrangements born from Miller's interest in minimalism & sound texture.
