1 - AUCAN - DNA - (L+C) 
AFRICANTAPE


A crossroad between styles and sounds, AUCAN's music is based on a unique energy: synthesis of the opposites. Digital and analog, cleanliness and distortion, melody and dissonance, quietness and strongness arm free-fall structures, open to direct light, leave the listener inside obscurity. Gifted of an hammering rhythmical compactness, and of a deadly technical awareness, the band's obsessive combinations contain nonetheless an emotive tissue spent on crooked roads long time ago, incarnate the need to yell out, to get lost in order to discover yourself. THE special secret DNA EP (5 gracks, 35mn), dedicated to Gerhardt Fuchs (Maseratis drummer, 1974-2009) is finally coming out on Africantape in Vinyl 12" (CD included).

3 - CAMILLA SPARKSSS - FOR YOU THE WILD - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


After a series of limited edition 7" vinyl EPs Camilla Sparksss (aka Barbara Lehnhoff) is here to release her debut album For You The Wild on April 7th 2014 for Africantape and On the Camper records. She was born at -27 C in December 1983. She grew up amongst the indian reserves on the Great Lakes of Northwestern Ontario (Canada) with her family and a small brown bear. "For You The Wild" is all of this. The wildlife, the lakes, the woods and the art of having to invent your own games. This ten track album is a storm of dirty electronic contorted pop written without rules by Barbara and her producer Aris Bassetti (also her partner in the art rock band Peter Kernel). The fil rouge of "For You The Wild" is the battle between acting sweet and dancing in your face. Its about life; wildlife. The single Move Like A Shark moves like a shark; slowly gliding through melodies of vast synths and nasty, soft vocals. The other face of the album boils with cutting metallic sounds and bizarre rapping vocals, psychedelic electro synths and snares... yes, snares. Camilla Sparksss is painting her own rainbow.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Move Like A Shark 02. Precious People 03. Ill Teach You How To Hunt 04. Europe 05. This Is Huge 06. Sharing 07. For You The Wild 08. You Are Awesome 09. Killer 10. White Cat

4 - CESARIANS, THE - I'M WITH GOD - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


The Cesarians were born in Hackney, the London borough synonymous with poverty, punk, and politics, a district that mixes multi-culture with gangster glamour. It was here, one winter, in a damp pub cellar, that the legendary producer, Craig Leon, first auditioned the band. Whisking them off across town to the leafy and gentile environs of St Johns Wood, they cut their debut album in Abbey Roads infamous studio 2. But London was not their calling.They set off, touring Europe, gigging the major cities - Paris, Barcelona, Lisbon, Zurich, Berlin and Rome - and feverishly playing all the towns in between as if in search of another home. Returning from a show in Prague at the dead end of 2010 they got the call. "How about Christmas in Italy?" Well naturally. Wasnt it here that the great English Romantic poets chose to winter? But this wasnt to be a time of hibernation for the Cesarians. Though they had found a home away from the London snow, in the shadow of the Apennine, they also found a studio. And as England dozed, fed up with its bland seasonal faire, The Cesarians were cooking.The result: A blistering new five track EP that the moves from the brooding menace of "In Your House" to the orchestrated and opiated haze (and highs) of "Im With God". It screams and blasphemes with Clash like savagery in the anthemic "Worst Thing" then redeems its self sweetly with the sad melody of "School Yard" and the lonely poetry of "Questa e lei".I dont believe in God . . . but I do believe in The Cesarians.

5 - ELECTRIC ELECTRIC - DISCIPLINE - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


Electric Electric is a french trio composed of looped and live guitars, drums, and electronics. The band was created in 2005 and played many shows in France and Europe. It was also invited at the SXSW in 2010 and Pop Montreal in 2011. They provide a sound density, a physical liberation of bodies, the repetition as a call to dance. Their percussive music evokes a trance where the polyr-hythmic elements spread in a lightning way. These three musicians influenced by noise post-punk bands and by electro- nic and spectral music, play with the codes of the modern musics such as minimal electronics and futuristic rnb, as well as with those of the ancestral and ritual musics. Electric Electric plays pop music with complex outlines, its own vision of 'dance music'.

7 - EXTRA LIFE - DREAM SEEDS - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


Since 2008 Extra Life has challenged and seduced various underground scenes by fusing the obsessive intricacy of minimalist composition, the suicidal swoon of Morrissey, the epic strength of Metal and the solemn purity of Medieval chant. With a pedigree including Zs, Dirty Projectors and Dax Riggs, the band's dark, dramatic sound, labeled by some as "Plague Pop", has been called everything from "genius" to "pretentious" to "religious"...

10 - GIDEON, ALEXIS - FLOATING OCEANS - (LP) 
AFRICANTAPE


Alexis Gideon will be presenting the third installment in his critically-acclaimed multimedia opera series, Video Musics III: Floating Oceans, beginning this fall. Portland, Oregons historic Hollywood Theatre will host the world premiere on October 11, 2012. Gideon is an interdisciplinary iconoclast whose body of work joyfully challenges the presumed constraints of visual arts and music genres. Where others attempting the same projects might get lost in the weeds, Gideons ferocious intelligence and crystal-clear vision produces some of the most engaging pieces audiences will encounter. Gideon worked with Cynthia Star (Lead Painter for Coraline, Laika Studios) and Jacob Rubin (Best New American Voices), among others, to produce the video piece. Video Musics III: Floating Oceans was funded by a generous award from The Regional Arts and Culture Council, the second consecutive grant from this organization Gideon has received. (Gideons first RACC award was for Video Musics II: Sun Wu-Kong). Video Musics III: Floating Oceans is a 38-minute stop-motion animation video opera based on the works of the early 20th century Irish writer Lord Dunsany, and inspired by the time and dream experiments of the Irish physicist John William Dunne. The piece is dedicated to Flann OBrien. Video Musics III: Floating Oceans contrasts the vivid dreams of its poet-protagonist with the foreboding routine of pedestrian life. Parts operate under the tow of dream logic. All dialogue and narration are expressed through lyrics and music performed live in front of the projected video. The piece explores non-linear and traditional linear narrative, and uses the musical meters of modern classical, hip-hop, ambient, and psychedelia.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Prologue 02. The Workman 03. Dinner Party 04. Go-by Street 05. Old Brown Coat 06. Endless Time 07. Drifting Suns 08. Return Of The Exiles 09. Alone The Immortals 10. Nightmares 11. Prayers 12. The Secret Of The Coat 13. Epilogue

11 - GIDEON, ALEXIS - SUN WU-KONG - (L+D) 
AFRICANTAPE


2LP + DVD. A one-hour multimedia video opera based on the 16th-century Chinese novel "The Journey to the West," "Video Musics II" joins the brightest lights of contemporary animation (Becca Taylor (Punk Planet, Arthur); Cynthia Star (Coraline, Moral Orel, Robot Chicken); Ezra Claytan Daniels (Darkhorse Comics, Top Shelf Comics)) with the most promising talents of contemporary music (Rachel Blumberg (M Ward, Arch Cape); Cory Gray (Norfolk & Western, Carcrashlander); Shelley Short (Hush)) to create an aural and visual universe that gleefully transcends both media. Is it film or music, high art or pop? Gideons work would fit snugly at either the Whitney Biennial or SXSW, which is to say it cannot be contained, really, by either venue. Marked throughout by the ambition, commitment to detail, and refusal to settle that have earned Gideon a cult following on both sides of the pond. Alexis Gideon has toured nationally with Dan Deacon and Shelley Short as well as played with Barr, Marnie Stern, Panther, Parts and Labor, Zs, People, Matt and Kim, and many, many others.

12 - HAZEL-RAH - THE AFRICAN TAPE (10") - (EP) 
AFRICANTAPE


Hazel-Rahs first official release. Prior to these songs, the recorded output had been sparse but pointed, consisting of lo-fi recordings that included several art-songs, a remix/reinvention of Candirias "Pull", and a French horn/baritone guitar duet played by Byrnes and Looker called "Glacier". The Africantape EP "Behold, A Firewall" and "Stars" are indeed the preeminent full-ensemble compositions from Hazel-Rahs first 5 years, captured skillfully onto tape by Colin Marston (Dysrhythmia, Krallice) and masterfully executed in performance by Tim Byrnes, Adam Minkoff, David Andrew Moore, and Charlie Looker (Extra Life). These songs epitomize Hazel-Rahs sound, juxtaposing crushing dissonance with epic cadences, and advanced rhythmic structures with trance-like passages.

13 - JOWJO - ANCORA NESSUM MESSAGGERO - (7") 
AFRICANTAPE


JOWJO is a nick name with a strange sound. Behind the name there is Sergio Carlini, guitar player from the italian punk band Three Second Kiss. Behind Sergio there is a solo project: a full-lenght (Out of the Window into the House - out in Nov. 2011 for the italian label Riff rec.) of electro-acoustic pieces, somewhere between primitive-folk, fingerpicking, chamber music, soundtracks of imaginary landscapes movies. Behind this solo project there are also friends that gave the right shape to the songs. Especially the brilliant Giovanni Fiderio, volinist, viola player and organist from the italian bands Tapso II and Mashrooms, and the special syncopated beat of Julien Fernandez. Behind the Jowjo album, there is this song "Ancora nessun messaggero", an extract of the album, a vortex of electricity and calm atmosphere, a song that Africantape and the three man decided to put out on a 7".

14 - MARTHA'S VINEYARD FERRIES, THE - MASS. GRAVE - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


The Marthas Vineyard Ferries is a rock band featuring Elisha Wiesner (Kahoots) on guitar, Bob Weston (Shellac, Volcano Suns, Mission of Burma) on bass guitar, and Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine, The New Year) on drums. As one might expect, you can hear elements of all the other bands Chris, Bob and Elisha are involved in, but ultimately, the Ferries music is truly its own thing. On Mass. Grave, the trio has developed its sound even further - though it's a sound that might be a bit hard to describe. "I think I said something like Minor Threat crossed with Eight Miles High by The Byrds," Wiesner said. "But of course we sound nothing like that. Our "sound" just happens to be what it sounds like when we all play together."

TRACKLISTING: 01. Wrist Full Of Holes 02. Parachute 03. Shes A Fucking Angel (from Fucking Heaven) 04. Ramon And Sage 05. Blonde On Blood 06. Look Up 07. One White Swan

20 - PAPAYE - LA CHALEUR - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


PAPAYE is a 3-piece outfit full of vitamins and tender flesh. Their music is like sitting on a high-speed train with needles for cushion, perfectly uncomfortable. Even though the band members also take part in Pneu, Room204 and Kommandant Cobra, according to the Africantape label manager it's the best thing they've done, then again, he also said he didn't want to be a dick about it. I personally hate side projects; it's like a bunch of bastard kids that all look the same. But I love PAPAYE. Why? Because, it's like juicy pop with sour edge to it, the only fruit you can't put in a smoothie with out ruining all the other ones. Their references are probably somewhere in between sweet Deerhoof melodies, early Don Caballero time signatures and US Maple for the "what the hell are they doing? Oh right I get it" parts. The band is concise and powerful, with no other intent than pure excitement.

21 - PAPIER TIGRE - PAPIER TIGRE - (7") 
AFRICANTAPE


The God has given us 2 new PAPIER TIGRE tracks. Playing with the end of the world, he decided to concentrate on what was truly important : this 7-inch. The A-side, "Personal Belongings" strikes immediately like an instant classic, a powerful pulse keeps the blood flowing, with the guitars interplay giving the directions, the vocal providing the heartbeat. The bands sound is immediately recognizable and the craftsmanship is here mastered, giving soul, energy and intelligence to a track you want to listen to again and again... The AA-side, "The difficult age" is a rollercoaster ride. Starting off with harsh layers of guitars, the song quickly moves on to moving atmosphere. Tension is lingering until it bursts out in the choruses. Demons are in the details, so they say. There are a couple here and there and everywhere on this song. PAPIER TIGREs first release on Chicagos own Sick Room records will be supported with a 19-day North American tour. EU release by Africantape. Lifes good when you want to.

24 - POWERDOVE - DO YOU BURN? - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


Annie Lewandowski comes from Minnesota, a place full of things that are long and longer: church services, dinner tables, and worry lines, to name a few. Somebody said there are ten thousand lakes there; if thats true, each of them shows up in some little way in Annies songs. She writes under the name Powerdove, which began as a band of one in California in 2007. A document of this brief solo era can be found on her EP Live from the Maybeck House (s/r, 2010). Before long, powerdove evolved into three; that trio (with Alex Vittum, percussion, and Jason Hoopes, bass) recorded Be Mine in 2009 (Circle into Square, 2010). On her new album, Do you Burn?, many of the songs were written along the scuzzy River Itchen in Hampshire, England, where Annie played concerts and went on the occasional European tour with Curtis McKinney, a laptop composer who uses Supercollider. After this year spent down by the sea, she returned to the US, settling in upstate New York and writing the rest of the material on the new album. When it came time to record, Annie enlisted the help of an old California friend, John Dieterich (Deerhoof), and a new French one, Thomas Bonvalet (LOcelle Mare). Three great improvisers, they worked fast. The result lies somewhere near the Marble Index, David Sylvian, Diane Cluck, and the Curtains (of which Annie is a former member). The roughness and fluidity of these tracks owe to their origin in mostly live takes, which have also lent a certain intima- cy to every sound: these are little songs to love, but there is also great mystery here, and even menace.

26 - SAVOLDI, DANIELA - TRASFORMAZIONI - (LP) 
AFRICANTAPE


Trasformazioni is the first work of Daniela Savoldi, cello solo. Synthesis of classical influences, pop, jazz, contemporary and oriental, writing music embraces the idea of improvisation overlapping emotions and different moods among them. The real thrust that drives this work is to tell and collect the steps of experiences, finally saying a clear point of crossing. A mixed in crescendo of colors and signs; an entire reworked from her only and one loop station who could follows and drives dancers, suggests, hides or reveals walks in the desert, eastern crossroads, walking animals, dissonances, surprises, people, dreams. It was urgent a say where she is and who she is just for now.The album is produced by Lorenzo Caperchi sound engineer and producer at the Red Carpet studio, Brescia (Italy).

27 - SHORT, SHELLEY - THEN CAME THE AFTER - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


'Then Came the After' was recorded throughout 2010 and 2011 at Liophant Studios with Alexis Gideon and in Mike Coykendall's Studio, both in Portland, Oregon. The songs reflect the emotions of the album title: the unknown, change, happiness and sadness of human relationships and the mystery of life. Shelley was inspired for the sound of Then Came the After by the work of Roger Miller, Loudon Wainwright 3rd, Roberta Flack, Melanie, Iris Murdoch, Joan Didion, Ron Davies, Jake Thackray, Kris Kristofferson, Nina Rota, Carson McCullers and Pharaoh Sanders. Built from many sources, Then Came the After carries the listener along with its unpredictability and the people, places and themes it touches, all held closely together by Shelley's warm and personal songs and voice.

29 - THREE SECOND KISS - TASTYVILLE - (CD) 
AFRICANTAPE


Just take a song like Maya. It starts with a deep and declamatory voice, which almost reminds a sort of Ian Curtis american melody stretched out on a carpet of obsessive drum and bass that seems to be coming from Rio de Janeiro more than from Chicago, topped by a slippery guitar that makes you think punk also bloomed in Caribbean lands. Suddenly melody changes and a skinny rock stone takes its place. It is made of solid and blank parts and the melody gives way to scratching frames, the guitar and drums chase as guttural bellowing of elephants who rest only at the end, where tribal rhythm collapses and yealds to a skeletal melancholy blues. Maya is just one of the 9 tracks featured on Tastyville, the new Three Second Kiss album after 4 years from the previous Long Distance (2008 African Tape), but it is the metaphor-song of a work born from the belly most than the brain. Each piece meets only the cinematic structure of the skin, changing course and direction without premeditation of style that is not the free guide of instinct. Tastyville shows a new strength of the Italian band, its desire to open up and let luxuriantly explode a sound - the rough and minimal sound created by the guitar, bass, drums triangle - in a brand new and free fluorescence that maintains the attitude of punk without its but visionary sound anymore. May be that's why Tastyville is an experience that embodies several emotional states rather than showing us only one philological style. No labels to spend cause everything is mixed, blended and digested. After many years of activities so many things have been told about Three Second Kiss. For us, the 9 tracks of Tastyville are primitive, emotional and visionare music. This is exactly what remains when you take away the superfluous.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Caterpillar Tracks Haircut 02. The Sky Is Mine 03. A Catastrophe Outside 04. Maya 05. Vampirized 06. Dont Dirty My Heart 07. Cut The Nerve 08. In Winter, The Sun Shines Over The Bridge 09. Mood Red
