1 - DROPOUT PATROL, THE - SUNNY HILL - (LP) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


Why cant people simply hold their tongues? That is, at least for half an hour at a time? The length of a concert performance. Dropout Patrol is one of those bands whose concerts are always interrupted at some point by someone who starts talking at the top of their voice. Why? Maybe its because the music is so quiet, so reserved. Like something from the days when Cat Power was still making Indie rock, Jason Molina was still alive, and Geoff Farinas exceptional band Karate was still in existence. But that makes it sound as if everything was better then, when really, it was rarely ever as good as here and now. Rock, then, in a way, but without the posturing (fortunately) and the volume (unfortunately). But also Folk, in a way, but without the long beards (fortunately) and without harmonicas, etc. (also fortunate). More minor chords than major. More loud than quiet.

2 - GOLDENEN ZITRONEN, DIE - FLOGGING A DEAD FROG - (CD) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


Die Goldenen Zitronen (The Golden Lemons), born a punk band in 1980s Hamburg and having developed into a seminal art punk collective, present their new album. After 11 long-players and countless collaborations with artists such as Peaches, Wesley Willis (with whom the band toured the US), Chicks On Speed, Franoise Cactus (of Stereo Total), Mark Stewart (of The Pop Group), DJ Koze or Michaela Melian, Flogging a Dead Frog is their first release on Altin Village & Mine.Flogging a Dead Frog assembles instrumental and, for the first time, English reworkings of songs of their most recent albums. Far from being a complacent Best of, the album directly plugs into the bands impressive body of work with the opener, >Fan Without Fan<, being a reworking of the most recent albums final track, >Wer Hier<. Flogging a Dead Frog, then, unfolds a re-contextualization in two senses: For one, its instrumental tracks emphasize the fact that the bands sound has always been much more than a musical accompaniment for the unrelenting social commentary of singer Schorsch Kamerun. Here, the album brings out the Goldies tremendous nomadism between punk, techno and krautrock, its dramaturgical condensations mirroring the diverse engagements of the six members in theater and film projects. On the other hand, in the English versions of songs such as >If I Were A Sneaker<, a song about European immigration policy, or >The Investor<, Flogging a Dead Frog proves a consequent re-adjustment of the bands political scope, opening discourse on matters that have desastrously proven to not be exclusively pertinent to Germany.As is typical for the Goldene Zitronen, these two interventions - one concerning the bands oeuvre, the other its environment - are inseparable and testament to their political aesthetics. A political aesthetics of which Flogging a Dead Frog is not a review, but a substantial extention.

4 - JASON & THEODOR - LIFE UNDER PALMTREES - (CD) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


Jason & Theodor are Berlins Sonja Deffner and Dorothee Leesing, Life under Palmtrees is their first long-play album. J&Ts name derives from verlan, a French language game, the name of which is a result of itself: in verlan, syllables are taken apart and freely rearranged in a new order; lenvers (inversion or flipside) becomes verlan, Sonja and Dorothee become Jason & Theodor. It is the same motion of deconstruction and recombination that carries their nine-song debut LP. In a stunning simultaneity of complexity and repetition, all at once chillwave, post-punks minimalism, Washington-style indie rock, 90s RnB and even IDM come to mind - a style for which Jason & Theodor themselves have half-jokingly coined the term mantra-pop, well aware of their sounds genre-defiance. The often layered and interwoven vocals tell stories of longing and belonging - historically, pops main areas of concern, which, in J&Ts interpretation, are casually diffracted and subverted.

6 - KILLDEER, PHOEBE -& THE SHIFT WITH MARIA DE MEDEIROS- - THE PIANO'S PLAYING THE DEVILS TUNE - (LP) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


Phoebe Killdeer & The Shift is the collaboration between newly Berliner Phoebe Killdeer (Nouvelle Vague, The Short Straws) with experimental musicians Thomas Mahmoud-Zahl (SFX, The Nest, Tannhuser Sterben & das Tod, Von Spar) and Ole Wulfers (Kapaikos, Party Diktator), supported by actress and singer Maria de Medeiros (i. e. The Saddest Music in the World, Pulp Fiction).The Pianos Playing The Devils Tune is free music in a most emphatic sense: The interplay between the abstract instrumentation on the one hand, equally recalling genres as diverse as noise rock, bass music and musique concree, as well as the intimate, concrete humanity of the sound on the other hand establishes a sprawling sonic space that gravitates around the haunting vocal passages of Killdeer and de Medeiros. The Pianos Playing The Devils Tune thereby succeeds in combining a decidedly experimental gesture with an urgent, uncanny familiarity and warmth; a precise sense of composition with an almost lavish casualness.Phoebe Killdeer & The Shift do not resolve the numerous paradoxes that mark The Pianos Playing The Devils Tune: The result is an equally challenging and rewarding album that in fact - as played out as this predicate may be - truly defies categorization. Devils tunes.

7 - MAP.ACHE - PS/A - (LP) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


Jan Barich aka Map.ache, long-time resident DJ of Leipzigs Conne Island, part of the reliably great KANN label and the Manamana DJ duo, presents Perception Shift /A, his first release on Altin Village & Mine. After his lauded 2015 Giegling debut, being remixed by Dixon and contributing to the Permanent Vacation compilation series, joining the AVM roster is only a seemingly surprising move for Map.ache, considering the labels long-standing relationship with (electronic) dance music and previous remixes done by Map.ache for the labels The Robocop Kraus and PTTRNS.

12 - URBAN HOMES - CENTRES - (CD) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


As a reaction to their drummers professional hiatus, Urban Homes decided to start from scratch with a Roland TR-707 drum machine. Shaped and influenced by ever-changing musical predilections, the group developed a style that drew influence from house music, dub, kraut rock, balearic, and disco - a sound that is complex and structured, but powerful when performed live. Because of this, Centres resembles a producer-record, yet it comes from a band that is rooted in the guitar underground, a design that is compa- rable to what bands such as Supersystem, !!! and The Rapture did to North American post-punk.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Ivory Tower Guard 5:03 02. Aurora 6:57 03. Ayran Gifbek Mersi 6:16 04. Full Trance Effect 6:18 05. Untitled Luv 11:07

14 - URBAN HOMES - JAMS - (CD) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


On two 12"s and over the course of a staggering 78 minutes, big things are happening on "Jams", Urban Homes monumental sophomore album. The highly ambititous attempt at a certain history of dance music, a sweaty night on the dance oor, an excursion into the fog ... But one thing at a time: The 13 Jams go back to recordings of years of communal, MIDI- and hardware-based jam sessions which, over three years, were painstakingly discarded, re ned, condensed, reconstructed and provided with occasional guest vocals by Hanitra Wagner (Oracles, Die Heiterkeit). The album was mixed by Jan-Philipp Janzen (Von Spar) at Dumbo Studios, mastered by Cem Oral at Jammin Masters. Sonja De ner (Die Heiterkeit, Jason & Theodor) is responsible for the stunning artwork.

17 - XIU XIU - FORGET - (CD) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


While writing FORGET, Xiu Xiu released the lauded Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, collaborated with Mitski on a song for an upcoming John Cameron Mitchell film, and scored an experimental reworking of the Mozart opera, The Magic Flute.All of this frantic, external activity lead to a softly damaged dreaminess and broadened intent that has not been heard before in other Xiu Xiu works. Standout track, "Wondering" is one of the catchiest boogie pop gems in the Xiu Xiu catalog, but like much of FORGET, it still bears an underlying tension that manifests differently in each piece.FORGET was produced by John Congleton (Blondie, Sigur Ros), Greg Saunier of Deerhoof and Xiu Xius own Angela Seo.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Call 02. Queen Of The Losers 03. Wondering 04. Get Up 05. Hay Choco Bananas 06. Jenny Gogo 07. At Last, At Last 08. Forget 09. Petite 10. Faith, Torn Apart

19 - YOUNG HARE - UNBREAK MY HEART - (CD) 
ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE


Young Hare owe their influence to the Frankfurt electronic culture. With approaches coming from House, R&B, and Disco, the current goal of the band is to find a new idea of pop music without sounding overly-pleasing.The sound moves along a highly polished surface after a long technical and compositional development process. On the new record, they work with different room sounds, hidden field recordings from greenhouses, reduced guitars, programmed steel drums, and doubling the acoustic drums with an MPC. Expected rhythms and cuts are erased and manipulated; in their own sense, the tracks are long and stretched-out. Sometimes music can't be long enough. A continuous self-sufficiency without fast changes evolves that can be translated to movement and dance. The sound structure is completed by a voice used as an instrument that creates different levels, turning into distinctive moments of the record, tremolos tumbling through vocal loops, and an unmistakable falsetto defining the vocal parts. The imperfect human component mixes clearly constructed samples in the recordings as well as at live concerts.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Don't Be Cruel 02. Sienna 03. Sure 04. Isla Nubla 05. The World We Are 06. Cao Lau 07. Rio Doro 08. Pond Life 09. Isle Of Emotions
