1 - ABBOTT, JIM - JACKSON C. FRANK: THE CLEAR, HARD LIGHT OF GENIUS - (Bk) 
BA DA BING!


The story of Jackson C. Frank is tragic. The victim of a school fire in his youth, struggling with homelessness and mental illness throughout his life, half-blinded in old age before his death in 1999, Frank met continuous obstacles. And yet he enjoyed a shining moment with the release of Jackson C. Frank on Columbia Records in 1965. The album would go on to be seen as one of the greatest folk albums of the decade-maybe of all time-and its opening track "Blues Run the Game" has become a standard covered by hundreds. Jim Abbotts book is the result of years of research piecing together evidence, relations and apocryphal stories from Franks life. It is also part memoir, as Abbott cared for Frank through the final decade of his life. Their friendship was fraught with difficulties, which Abbott portrays with the honesty of a journalist. In doing so, he draws a portrait of a uniquely gifted songwriter, blessed with talent and besotted by demons. At 250 pages, Abbotts memoir shows a flawed and caring individual whose struggle was best depicted in his songs. Following the release of Jackson C. Frank: The Clear, Hard Light of Genius, Ba Da Bing will release three volumes of Jackson C. Frank: The Complete Recordings in early 2015, compiling work from throughout his life, including unreleased material. ISBN: 9780990916406.

2 - ASS - LIVE IN NEW JERSEY - (MC) 
BA DA BING!


The rage of rebellion refried and roaring, SS ("AHH-sss") marries Monoshock, Electric Eels and Red Transistor with Judas Priest and UFO in an unauthorized ceremony still illegal in most states. Made up of the underground scourges Andy Kman (TeePee Records), Brian Turner (WFMU), Andrew Shumway and Chris Larsen (honored former member, since replaced by the Crucifucks drummer), SS tear through a set recorded live in Hoboken where you can feel the scum on the walls and sweat clouds in the air. Rock festers on in the crevices..

3 - BAIRD SISTERS - UNTIL YOU FIND YOUR GREEN - (LP) 
BA DA BING!


Considering theyve collaborated ever since they were kids living under the same roof, The Baird Sisters arguably could have made an album like Until You Find Your Green years ago. Theyve released two live recordings (the first recorded by their dad) and made plenty of demos, but this marks the first time Laura and Meg Baird decided to write and record a full-length on their own terms. The songs, recorded in Lauras house, have a familial intimacy joined by skillful depth, the ideal blend for a folk record, an equal mix of comfort and talent. Growing up surrounded by music, the sisters have traveled separate paths while remaining close. Laura studied piano and trombone in school and has collaborated with Glenn Jones on his recent releases. Meg has played in Espers, Watery Love, and currently drums/sings in Heron Oblivion. Shes also released a few solo albums on Drag City. Lauras first solo record will be released by Ba Da Bing early next year. These recordings capture the complexity of seventies progressive folk rock, emphasizing acoustic ino them.strumentation with a lack of self-consciousness that can only come from a private domestic environment. Meg plays guitar,Laura banjo, singing in harmony, and ornamenting their songs with flute, cello, fiddle, mandolin, upright bass, percussion and a cricket chorus. Until You Find Your Greens songs seem traditional, but thats deceptive, and they unfold in greater depths the deeper attention paid to them.

7 - CIRCUIT DES YEUX - OVERDEU - (CD) 
BA DA BING!


A few artists have had studios built for themselves-Jimi Hendrixs Electric Lady Studios a notable example-but certainly few albums have had studios built for them. Circuit des Yeuxs Haley Fohr and Caves Cooper Crain erected USA Studios in Chicagos Little Village neighborhood over a few weeks in January 2013 for the two months of recording sessions that make up Overdue. Founded with the acquisition of a one-inch Otari MX-70 tape deck (modded to 8-track) and a vacancy in a friends apartment, the studio endured hundreds of hours over its brief flash of life. Fohrs fifth LP under the name Circuit des Yeux (her fourth to see release) weaves a sonic Bildungsroman, documenting the transition from collegiate cloister in pastoral Bloomington, Indiana, to the noisy, haggard Chicago South Side. Even with the hand-constructed baffles and grandmother-sourced quilts thickly covering the walls (and, intermittently, a light crust of sloppy snow), the sounds of Little Village are literally embedded in the recording. The strains of nearby norteos pierce the floorboards and the elevated trains murmur just a few dozen feet from USA Studios flawed sanctuary. The songs rise above the din, however-full orchestrations ("Lithonia") and damaged hallucinations ("Acarina") alike. Fans of Fohrs prior, more experimental work are not catered to with this immeasurably more sophisticated new effort-but nor will they, or any other listener, be disappointed..

9 - COLOSSAL YES - SURROUNDED BY PROGRESS - (MC) 
BA DA BING!


Utrillo Kushner, main conveyor of Colossal Yes' ivory melodics and Comets On Fire's percussive juggernauts, takes Brutalism to new levels on "Surrounded By Progress," the soundtrack to a science-fiction dystopian tale yet to be written. The music here remains wordless and instrumental, interconnecting biological rhythms with a sky the color of a television turned to a dead channel. The initial rush of inhumanity disguises the human heart at the center of "Surrounded by Progress," a living and breathing document the Monks of the Order of St Leibowitz would deify up for endless study..

10 - CONWAY-JONES, RICHARD - THE BEST OF.... - (MC) 
BA DA BING!


Richard Conway-Jones is a painter and musician who has been making records in his Twyford, England, home for over two decades. Renowned for his artwork, Conway-Jones is mostly known for his work as one half of The Marilyn Decade, a sprawling and gorgeous two-guitar band that released an album on Freek Records in 1995. Hes continued to write, record and release albums on his own, and here is an opportunity to hear a best-of compilation, with songs chosen by the artist himself. Conway-Jones's method of production, and impressive output, places him in a rarified league populated by some of the most distinct musicians. He does not quite sound like R Stevie Moore, Jandek or Robert Scott, but theres a line that connects him to all of the aforementioned. The Best of Richard Conway-Jones captures home-recording at its finest. Many songs are just guitar and his soft, nuanced vocals. Others have female vocal accompaniment, or a thick guitar distortion breaking in. The result is a musician unbounded by expectations, creating essentially beautiful songs from an intimate vantage point..

11 - COUSINS - THE HALLS OF WICKWIRE - (CD) 
BA DA BING!


We all have cousins, but Cousins are not actually cousins. Cousins are Leigh Dotey and Aaron Mangle and they are the hardest working band in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Cousins are a guitar / drums duo that plays rock and roll music for today. Their Halls of Wickwire is generously filled with fuzz and reverb. There are ten thousand bands in Halifax, rising up, gasping for air, sinking, stuck in the mud, or flaring up like model rockets over the harbors shitty waters. The geographic, cultural and economic factors of the region take their toll on the lifespan of the average Atlantic Canadian rock unit. But these Cousins have persisted and carry on. After several years of skin-shedding metamorphosis, near-endless North American touring, two full-length albums and a string of limited-edition releases on various formats and labels, theyve grown up, unencumbered by the weight of the region or their own history. This band is poised, clean and lean. Cousins break through fences and set off roman candles. Their rock and roll is devastating and joyful, full of love and punk romance. It will fix your bike and leave paint under your fingernails. It is music that will shake off all that faux, dead, cool. This record will change your life if you let it. A heartbreaker and a healer, it looks an awful world dead in the eye, fills the lungs up with all that pain and worry, and then comes back breathing a beautiful fire. This is the fine art of defense and hope. A ramshackle monument built over a steady spring of melancholy. Electricity and blood in the lines. Guitar and drums. A musical avalanche set apart from the macho and debaucherous posturing and fictions of rock culture. This is a sound set loose, rolling down hill in a shopping cart, at once full of confidence, excitement, dread and anticipation..

13 - CRONIN, CLAIR - CAME DOWN A STORM - (LP) 
BA DA BING!


Came Down a Storm is an album that creates a world. Through Claire Cronins deep, intimate voice come songs of wreckage and redemption. A published poet and English Ph.D. student as well as a musician, Cronin uses images and symbols to craft songs that reach beyond the personal. She sings of death in a field, death at sea, dreams of dying, and a vision of a future where death is no longer allowed. Yet the music is not depressing; even in its darkest lines, these songs aim to float. The album is a collaboration between Cronin and Deerhoof guitarist John Dieterich, who met by chance at a Los Angeles show and began writing songs together long-distance. After sending recordings and ideas back and forth over email for a year, Cronin joined Dieterich at his house in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to record Came Down a Storm. It was mixed with Jay Pellici at New, Improved Recordings in Oakland, California, where the full instrumentation was put in place. The album features Pellici and Chris Vatalaro on drums and Ezra Buchla and Heather Trost on strings. The spare, melancholy style of Cronins previous self-released work is evident in this album, but the music created with Dieterich takes Came Down a Storm beyond the folk genre. Cronins voice recalls Karen Dalton or Jason Molina in its sincerity and ache-plaintive and burnished with a kind of dark gold throughout. The instruments build around her singing: breaking to crescendos, driving emotional currents, or providing lively counterpoint to the lyrics funereal themes. Cronin will tour this Summer and Fall with Buchla, performing pared-down arrangements of these songs and others..

15 - CRONIN, CLAIR - OVER AND THROUGH - (MC) 
BA DA BING!


In anticipation of Came Down A Storm, Claire Cronin's full band collaboration with John Dietrich (Deerhoof) which Ba Da Bing will release next Spring, we present this Best Of compiling her solo songs of the past few years. Cronin's songs are sparse, deep, and dark, and her gravelly voice reaches unexpected levels of emotional beauty. There's something Jason Molina going on here, by way of Karen Dalton and Neil Young. Cronin is currently working towards a PhD in poetry at University of Georgia, and her lyrics reflect the intelligence and insight of someone so devoted to the written word..

16 - CROOK, BRIAN W/THE RENDERS - THIS WORLD JUST EATS ME UP ALIVE - (LP) 
BA DA BING!


While recording a group of songs that would end up being part of This World Just Eats Me Up Alive, Brian Crook took a break outside with his bandmates. A small girl nearby ran up to a woman saying "Mommy, mommy! Theres a vampire here!" The mother asked how the girl knew it was a vampire, and the girl said, "He talks like this," and proceeded to do a growling impression of a New Zealand accent. At the time, Brian was in a dark suit and had super long hair, and was playing badminton.. Crooks new solo album comprises eight years of recording, so perhaps his undead appearance is not surprising; it comprises a span of inspiration that seems almost vampiric, with themes suggested by Greek mythology, a favorite 1960s author, to the abstract electronics of Aphex Twin and Arca as influences. The album came together in parts, slowly assembled with various contributors and recording locations, the earliest trace having lyrical origins from 1991, and was done during during sessions for The Terminals, Crooks other band (you can also add NZ legends Scorched Earth Policy and Flies Inside The Sun to that list). A near decade provides a lot of material for reflective songwriting. In Crooks revelations about life in New Zealand and his tenebrous lyrical style there is more than a touch of comedy, albeit of a blackly humorous, "South Island New Zealand" nature. The lyrics and music come from a similar place as New Zealand painters Bill Hammond and Tony de Latour, evoking a kind of ceremonial primitivism.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Black Mariah 02. Dragged Both Ways 03. This World Just Eats Me Up 04. The Smoking Singularity 05. Poisoning The Well 06. Sissyphus 07. Joyce Carol Oates

BA DA BING!


Between melody and discord, Cross Records first full-length LP Be Good forges a quiet path through myriad sounds.

19 - CROSS RECORD - WABI SABI - (LP) 
BA DA BING!


In 2013, Emily Cross decamped from Chicago to the remote, idyllic town of Dripping Springs, TX, with her husband Dan Duszynski. They rented a ranch that covers eighteen acres, has a chicken coop and is located next to a bird sanctuary. During 60-hour workweeks, split between restaurants, supermarkets and nannying, she absorbed these workaday commonalities and shaped them into her smoky, atmospheric and gripping second album, Wabi-Sabi. Recording together as Cross Record throughout 2014 and into 2015 at the couples own Moon Phase Ranch, Wabi-Sabi is a crystallization of Crosss past music and her passion for art (she studied at the Burren College of Art in Ireland). For example, the scorpions depicted on the cover were found in her bathtub (something she definitely had not experienced before living in Texas) and photographed by her, and she regularly draws and paints in a nook above the studio. The way we interact with and adapt to different and strange environments is a theme that permeates the album. Most recording was done in the early and late hours of the day, with loons cawing in the distance thanks to that bird sanctuary. The ambiance of twilight evenings and orange dawns formed its heart and soul. Crosss wispy, silvery singing and minimal presentation contrast with the dark intensity of booming drums, thick guitar and destabilized electronics. It can be loud, stirring and unsettling, but also quietly still and serene. Dusynski produced and engineered the record, alongside production from one of Crosss close friends Theo Karon, while Austin-based musician Thor Harris (Swans, Bill Callahan) also contributed..

Disguised as the meandering outpourings of vacant thought and activity dialed simultaneously from zero and ten. Formed in the cauldron of a fevered mistake resolute. Surrounded by ignorance, dis-interest, and the attention of the carefully self-selected. Recorded and burned through a thousand galaxies of dust and doubt and endless infinite wonder, transforming both time and space.

Recognizing any contribution as miniscule and insignificant when placed within the greatness of the other, the dominant insolent preening satisfied, continually shouting the pre-eminence of the first world order.

Forever exiled to the very bottom of the world to reflect on the struggling desperate pile above. Recognizing any contribution as miniscule and insignificant when placed within the greatness of the other, the dominant insolent preening satisfied, continually shouting the pre-eminence of the first world order.

25 - DEAD C/RANGDA - SPLIT - (LP) 
BA DA BING!


Two of the greatest bands of the present day, each composed of two guitarists and a drummer. Every members name carries its own legendary status. Richard Bishop. Ben Chasny. Chris Corsano. Michael Morley. Bruce Russell. Robbie Yeats. Fabricated empires have risen and been destroyed by the vast output of any one of these guys. Finally, they come together on one release: a split LP between two supergroups. The Dead Cs tracks are a gem of a find. The band uncovered recordings nestled in the back corner of their archives that they completely forgot existed. These tracks were under consideration for their seminal album Eusa Kills. The loose majesty found on that album comes to the fore here, with a group finding their wings right as they are set aflame. Rangda recorded their two compositions at Russian Recording in Bloomington, Indiana. Everything that brings these musicians together uncoils and commands. Beats of silence underscore tangents that lead back to main themes and out again. Its as though the years and years of playing under their collective belts has culminated in these glorious moments..

27 - EYE - OTHER SKY - (LP) 
BA DA BING!


Other Sky is Eyes masterpiece. Recorded 12 years after their initial formation, the Dunedin trio of Peter Stapleton (The Terminals, The Pin Group, Flies Inside The Sun), Peter Porteous (Empirical) and Jon Chapman (Double Leopards, Rory Storm and the Invaders) have never sounded more on target and immense. Not that their past releases are anything shabby! With this record, theres a distinct communication going on between the players as they freely explore the dregs and corners of what is arguably still considered rock music. Recorded at The Anteroom, an old Masonic lodge in Port Chalmers, it took a steady three years to cobble together. The five tracks here alternately strike with intensity and drift with menace, with Eye casting new lines of cohering musical language into a sea of babble. Be prepared to transcend.
