1 - APPETITE - SCATTERED SMOTHERED COVERED - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Early in the first track on Scattered Smothered Covered, the new album by Appetite, Teddy Briggs sings, "songs keepwriting themselves" and the resulting collection of music seems to do exactly that. Its a testament to the sense of musical ease and fluency this 27-year-old Californian creates with this record. Originally conceived as a project to, as Briggs simply puts it, "try and make songs all by myself," Appetite has, on this new disc, flourished, conjuring songs buoyed by a spirit that vibrates with the influences of downtempo electronica, hip-hop, Tropicalia, and the far-reaching sonics of Can, early Mercury Rev, and certain shades of Beck. These are songs that reveal layers upon layers for the headphone listener or just provide a nice bed of gorgeous sound for you to rest upon.

3 - BAUER, MATT - DREAM'S END - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Dream's End is set in a landscape of barrier islands,mangroves, and southern maritime forests populated by fantastical creatures and sentient, shapeshifting pillars of smoke, Matt Bauer has imagined a fantasy world that allows him to give voice to his most raw and personal songs to date. More melodic, electric, and rhythmic than previous records, Dream's End builds on Bauer's previous orchestral folk arrangements ofstring quartets and banjos. It expands his range of sounds into near subsonic pedal bass, electric guitars strung as banjos, treated and amplified bells and Wurlitzer, and drums by turns layered and at other times stark and driving (he cites Fugazi's Brendan Canty and the layered drums on Cat Power's You Are Free as inspiration).

5 - BAUER, MATT - THE JESSAMINE COUNTY BOOK OF THE - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Matt Bauer has again turns to the subject of his native Kentucky with The Jessamine County Book of the Living, a record that is an intimate, personal, and often fantastical interpretation of the natural world. At times intensely spare, but more often blooming into sweeping orchestral arrangements, The Jessamine County Book of the Living, is a vision of central and eastern Kentucky as if arranged by Moondog and filtered through Hayao Miyazakis Princess Mononoke. The record exudes a fascination with the overwhelming abundance, power, beauty, and, ultimately, crushingly neutral indifference of the natural world. The Jessamine County Book of the Living is an album both highly emotional and oddly calming, alternately sprawling and economical, with light and beauty even in the darkest corners, and a darkness in the brightest light.

7 - BE CALM HONCHO - HONCHO DREAMS - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Be Calm Honcho is a quartet of sugared, salty hams, living in San Francisco with a lumpy lunch sack of strangestrengths.

They've pooled their geographic wizardry from theidle bayous of Lafayette, LA [Jacob], citrus groves and strip malls of the San Fernando Valley [Alex] and the lushBay Area motherboard [Shannon & Mikey], and are now ramping up to the release of their first full-length albumtitled Honcho Dreams, soon to be released on Crossbill Records.

14 - LOOM, THE - TEETH - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Teeth: the part of you that outlast you longest once youre gone; that hold a record of what youve done with your time, tribute or rebuke. In comparison to their longevity, time for the rest of you is short. So, then what to do with that time? For the members of Brooklyn five-piece, The Loom, the answer to this question is the reason that they choose to play music together in the first place - the simple search for joy. Its a concern that both far outdates, and is reflected in, the searching folk, intricate percussion, and psych-influenced dissonance and atmospherics that they love and wind into their music. But Teeth, their debut, is not all joyful. Like the music that inspires them, it focuses more closely on the myriad hurdles that ensnare us along the way.

17 - MANN, JAKE & THE UPPER HAND - PARALLEL SOUTH - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Jake Mann authors rock songs imbued with the archetypal dustbowl patina of a Steinbeck story, delivering lyrical and melodic snapshots on powerful hooks. Parallel South is rife with desolation: people drifting apart, landscapes moved through - listening becomes sometimes voyeuristic, as if whats happening should be private and unrepeated. But, its too loud to be private and too native to the classic pop tradition to not be played over and over again. Thats the thing about Manns songwriting-it tells his stories of moody isolation and the hope that lies beyond destructive, worn-out situations. People cite greats whose greatness is tough to describe as touchstones - Elvis Costello, Pavement, Thiebauds overexposed vistas - theirs is the pathway Mann travels alongside on his Parallel South journey.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Signal 02. Below The Line 03. Run Away 04. Days Are Long 05. Say It's Fine 06. Get What You Came For 07. Facing To The Sun 08. Witch Hunt 09. Wrong Thing 10. Signal (reprise) 11. Signal Reprise - The Islay Banks Remix (bonus Track) 12. Days Are Long - Downer Remix By Max Hart (bonus Track) 13. Facing To The Sun - Xxx Remix By Grafton (bonus Track) 14. Get What You Came For - Demo Version (bonus Track)

19 - PIERCE, GARRETT - DUSK - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Garrett Pierce pens songs that are literary in style with well-worked lyrics and a voice that soars over dark, ethereal melodies. Dusk is a collection of stories that span a lifetime. Its a travelogue from his younger years - nostalgic episodes of seasick fishing boats, suffocating poverty, and first loves. Its a road trip soundtrack from the desert to the coastal forests, stopping at every Greyhound bus station along the way. Its the purples and grays that conclude another day; another phase of Garretts life. In a strange way it feels like a bookend and a beginning at the same time - the way the sunset brings the night, yet the darkness is oftentimes the most exciting part of the day.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Boat Song 02. Distant Thought 03. Don't Hold Back 04. These Wounds 05. Enough 06. Greyhound Song 07. Get Me Out Of This Place 08. One Last Breath 09. Not A Religious Man 10. This Town Of Mine

21 - SEA OF BEES - SONGS FOR THE RAVENS - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


The strength, innocence, honesty and purity of intention that flows throughout Sea of Bees debut, Songs For the Ravens, manifests itself compositionally and technically-most immediately with the laser beam pull of Jules captivating voice. Shes so versatile, not only as a vocalist but as a songwriter, that Songs For The Ravens finds her masterfully navigating Americana-tinged stompers ("Sidepain"), heavy, trotting expanses ("Marmalade"), soaring harmonic rock sorrow ("Wizbot") and keyboard-brightened musings ("Willis"). Aside from the drums and a few other instrumental lines, Jules wrote and played every single bit of the entire album-including handheld percussion, glockenspiel, guitar, bass, keys, marimba and slide. This is a record that will soothe your broken heart, commiserate with you when youre angry, befriend you when youre lonely and celebrate life with you through the pure joy of its being. Longing is expressed with hope; sadness with understanding. Its scope, intensity and solidity would be considered stunning for any weathered artist; its simply astounding here.

22 - TWO SHEDS - ASSEMBLING - (CD) 
CROSSBILL


Two Sheds' music takes the tender and direct pop mindset of someone like Liz Phair straight to the top floor. Caitlin's voice may remind listeners of Kristen Hersh or Mazzy Star, sounding like she's weeping in the sad songs and smiling in the happy songs. The band takes the California rock-soul of comrades like Mother Hips or 90s indie wizards Pavement, driving to the essence of a song in the shortest pathpossible. They are pushing themselves to dig down to the still-genuine heart of rock and roll, where truelove still resides, away from the false promises of the searchlights. They will dare you to not be enamored
