1 - ARC IN ROUND - ARC IN ROUND - (LP) 
LA SOCIETE


Arc in Rounds self-titled debut fits snuggly within the upper echelon of the neo-psychedelic pantheon. The albums accentuating effects and swirling, hypnotic layers of dissonant noise-built like sonic bricks to shelter the songs true melodic core-is Arc in Rounds signature design, a sound that the band has cultivated for over seven years. After two EPs (2010s Diagonal Fields and last years II), the Philly foursome pick up right where they left off, revealing a natural evolution from able-bodied shoegazers (then known as Relay) to a well-oiled, fully-realized, creative rock force.

3 - BLACK SWANS, THE - CHANGE - (CD) 
LA SOCIETE


There's something disquieting at the bottom of the Black Swans' songs, something half-shaped and half-seen, like a body in a lake. The surface of the music is usually calm and familiar, but something disturbing appears briefly in the crest of each wave of violin or guitar. On the emphatically titled Change!, their second full-length and first for La Socit Expditionnaire, that something might be dread, or fear, or some secret intelligence about which the band write and play but can never disclose. It's the same something that haunted their debut, Who Will Walk in the Darkness with You?, and their follow-up EP, Sex Brain. Paradoxically, Change! doesn't actually change any of their mysterious intent, but amplifies it.

5 - COLUMBOID - MONSTER VISION - (CD) 
LA SOCIETE


Columboid play the kind of rock that covers a wide spectrum of sound and influences. On one end they enjoy punking it up, on another end you may hear hints of garage or surf music. Or in a track like "Superlatude" youll hear some of these things run through a progressive rock filter, and then it turns somewhere unexpected a few minutes later. This is the bands monster vision, which they nicely reveal in their album called Monster Vision (La Socit Expditionnaire), where you go in one way and come out more fabulous than ever before.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Juicy Mode 06:13 02. Interlude #1 (the Crisis) 01:35 03. Superlatude 10:03 04. Interlude #2 (uncomfortably Numb) 01:40 05. Dad's Gonna Be Proud 03:39 06. Interlude #3 (the Workload) 01:22 07. Gorky 03:40 08. Shop Attack 05:30 09. Down To The Inflection 04:43 10. Epilogue (preserve All Monsters) 00:56

6 - COLUMBOID - WE WERE ONE - (LP) 
LA SOCIETE


here is a cool, detached iciness that pervades the entirety of We Were One, the mesmerizing debut record from the Brooklyn trio Columboid. But rather than coming across as insular sonic experiments, these minimalist-leaning songs are instead infused with a seductive, textured depth that gives the listener plenty of room to get lost in while the menacing, hypnotic synths and relentless rhythms swirl around them. There are dark, ominous edges threaded throughout each of these moody numbers, with most of them smoothed over by bewitching keyboard flourishes and Ryan Hamiltons impassioned vocals (a heady mix of Ian Curtis and Yeasayers Chris Keating). All of it adds up to a tense, mercurial record that effortlessly blends desolate, gothic elements with an adventurous, melodic spirit that soars amongst the darkness.

8 - DRAGON TURTLE/ GOODNIGHT STARS GOODNIGHT AIR - SPLIT - (LP) 
LA SOCIETE


Spill Out The Night" is Dragon Turtle's 17 minute call to arms, a jubilant acceptance of embracing challenge, exploration and discovery through natural wonder. On the flip side, GSGA goes microscopic with "Subluminal", as if looking through a high powered telescope into the deepest recesses of night, facing off with the cold winter sky, inspired by crystalline frozen nightscapes, deconstructed guitar drones, and broken electronics. Beautiful and monolithic walls of string scrapes slowly yield to dark melody.

9 - LEWIS & CLARKE - BLASTS OF HOLY BIRTH - (CD) 
LA SOCIETE


Lewis & Clarke takes us on a "Post-Folk Neo-Baroque" journey through the intricate mysteries of creation. The experience is one of pure subtlety and mind-altering vision, focusing on "the path" rather than obvious hooks, snares and entrapments. Nylon stringed and bowed instruments are set to transcendental verse and laced with future-primitive synth melodies, transporting us from structured chamber folk into meditative passageways. Contributions from members of Man Man and Rachel's.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Secret Of The Golden Flower 01:35 02. Blasts Of Holy Birth 06:54 03. Comfort Inn 07:36 04. Before It Breaks You 10:11 05. Black Doves 05:12 06. Crimson Carpets 08:10 07. We Think We Have Eyes 05:44 08. Be The Air We Breathe 02:50

10 - LEWIS & CLARKE - LIGHT TIME - (LP) 
LA SOCIETE


'Light Time' is a subtle and powerful 12" vinyl exercise in it's own flaws, weaknesses and strength of purpose. Side A's two tracks act as one piece of transitional music; confrontational and satisfying with the softest abandon of self-awareness. Side B glances to the past and confirms the restorative cycle of death, decay, contemplation, and re-growth. For all of the whispery voiced, faux-bohemian, lilting clichs that over populate what we can loosely term as "folk music", Lewis & Clarke once again reminds us that the heart, above all else, is a muscle.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Dead And Gone 04:01 02. Light Time 07:21 03. Petrified Forest 06:50 04. Chelsea Hotel #2

11 - MOON & MOON - VII ACTS OF AN IRON KING - (CD) 
LA SOCIETE


Moon & Moon's VII Acts of an Iron King is William Lemon's Avant-Rock Opera. Reflections of timeless struggle, self-fulfilling prophecy, and age-old triumph, with flashes of modern affectation. A fluid and evolving seven-act performance; an epic tale of angst, hunger, tragedy, failure, and ultimately, hope. Contributions by members of An Albatross, Lewis & Clarke, Barkus Born and Stephonik Youth with guest appearances by Devendra Banhart, Gibby Haynes, and Bat For Lashes.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Act I: Into The Dust 04:47 02. Act Ii: Hands Of A Man 06:27 03. Act Iii: We Are The Lights 04:39 04. Act Iv: Come Down Like A Man 05:56 05. Act V: There Can Be Only One 08:45 06. Act Vi: This Is Our Celebration 06:33 07. Act Vii: Together Alone, We Jump We Rise 05:59

12 - SOARS - SOARS - (LP) 
LA SOCIETE


Soars is a reflection and by-product of Eastern Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley; a fertile creative pool over the past decade, spawning a healthy number of noise/experimental/punk artists, bands, and venues (Brother JT, Pearls & Brass, etc). With NYC and Philadelphia in close proximity, it's all too common for the artist-as-drone to flee one's breeding grounds, leaving the assiduous worker-bees to tend the hive. Comprised of four long-time mainstays of the LV's spirited independent community (members of Memes, Goodnight Stars Goodnight Air, Dark Circles and We Have Heaven), the band's atmospheric scapes of dream-pop are awash with gauzy hints of Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine, propelled by lockstep industrial rhythms. While destroying and rebuilding sonic textures and lyrical myth, Soars mirrors the depth, beauty, and character of their regenerative post-decay rust-belt colony.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Introduction 00:36 02. The Sun Breaks Every Way But One 05:00 03. Throw Yourself Apart 04:20 04. Escape On High 06:19 05. Ditches 03:49 06. Figurehead 05:25 07. Young Adult 03:44 08. Monolith 05:18

14 - SOLTERO - YOU'RE NO DREAM - (CD) 
LA SOCIETE


lobetrotter, troubadour, teacher, migrant worker; Soltero's Tim Howard is a man with many a feather in his cap. This is lovelorn folk-pop at its finest moment: desperate and romantic. Love is declared, sold down the river, and stolen from the hand of God through the course of twelve songs.

15 - SWEENEY, JOEY - LONG HAIR - (LP) 
LA SOCIETE


On Leave Ruin, no one can accuse Timothy Showalter of being dishonest or even coy. The singer-songwriter, who was raised as a Mennonite in Indiana and now teaches at a Hebrew school in Pennsylvania, crafts spare folk with his Strand of Oaks project, and the stories he lays over these hushed compositions are deeply affecting, and sometimes uncomfortably intimate confessionals.In early 2013, Sweeney went on to record Long Hair, with Grammy award-winning producer Aaron Luis Levinson, Lushlife aka Raj Haldar, and others. Long Hair is slated to be released in 2013 by the eclectic La Socit Expditionnaire imprint (home and spawning pool of Lewis & Clarke, Judson Claiborne, Strand of Oaks, Arc In Round).

TRACKLISTING: 01. Long Hair 03:07 02. Kate Moss Hologram 02:47 03. When You Say My Name 03:58 04. Locust Bar 03:05 05. Hold My Breath For Thee 04:20 06. Records And Coffee 02:56 07. I Just Can't Bear To See The Old Gang Again 04:09 08. We Meet In Cabs 02:17 09. The Nina, The Pinta, The Santa Maria 03:51
