4 - CABINESSENCE - NAKED FRIENDS - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


Borne of the patchouli-soaked rainforest of Oregons Willamette Valley, Cabinessence peppers its space-hippie country with sultry, Bolan-esque glam rock and bizarro flashes of ass- shaking motor-city funk. The ghosts of Brian Wilson and Phil Spector haunt these walls-or would, if either of them were dead. Naked Friends is the bands second long-player, and their first for Spark & Shine. Their debut Comes Back to You landed them as one of Magnet Magazines Bands to Watch. Cabinessence is led by Nathan Maricle and Jacob Arnold, formerly of NW buzz band Marigold.

5 - CURTAINS FOR YOU - AFTER NIGHTS WITHOUT SLEEP - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


Power pop has a cult following for a reason - theres usually a genuine darkness lurking underneath those deceptively sunny melodies, and Curtains For Yous After Nights Without Sleep is exceptional in its exploration of both ends of the spectrum. The band has been making some impressive headway in the year and a half since they released their last record, including handpicked slots on sold-out shows with The Posies and The Head And The Heart, as well as making the list of Seattles Top 10 new artists in City Arts magazine. From the opening notes of the impossible-to-remove-from-your-head "Daisy" through the bouncy "What Good Am I Now?"; these are songs that are as fun as they are emotional, as dark as they are light.

6 - EARL, SHELBY - SWIFT ARROWS - (LP) 
SPARK & SHINE


Swift Arrows is a record full of dark corners and dazzling shafts of light. An exploration in gamboling piano linesslowing into lingering, thrumming ballads, Earl sounds as though shes singing from the very boat she burnedbefore - throwing breakaway melodies into a whipping wind of resonant choral singers. An album about thefraying of love, about its anger and its mercy, about despair and boundless hope, knotted together with lushstrings and steady, distant drum. It is clear Earl knows that once one has "burned the boats" there is no goingback, only going forward, headlong into ones new life. Swift Arrows is about doing just that, and doing it boldly.This album is pressed on pink vinyl and has a digital download card.

Fauxbois began as a Brian Mayers Brooklyn bedroom folk project in 2000 and evolved into the full band that is ready to unleash its debut album, Carry On.

9 - MALDIVES - MUSCLE FOR THE WING - (LP) 
SPARK & SHINE


The Maldives debut full-length in 2009, Listen to the Thunder (Mt. Fuji, produced by Grammy Award-winner Kory Kruckenberg), was the culmination of years of playing together at every kind of gig imaginable and a faithful document of who The Maldives are as a live band. This time, the band took a different approach by working with producer Shawn Simmons (The Head and The Heart, Grand Hallway, Lemolo) who brought the bands assembled creativity together in a different way and explores their combined vision with expertly crafted songs that will transport you to another time and place altogether. This is where songwriter Jason Dodsons storytelling culminates intocharacters and places that blur the lines between fiction and nonfiction, the past and the present

10 - MASSY FERGUSON - DAMAGED GOODS - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


Massy Fergusons new 5-song EP showcases three new songs and two live tracks, one live track from a show at their hometown Tractor Tavern in Seattle and another at the legendary Melbourne, Australia club, The ESPY, during their Australian tour in 2009. The new tracks are all three quite a departure from each other and intentionally juxtaposed, hence the name Damaged Goods.

11 - MASSY FERGUSON - VICTORY & RUINS - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


You know only good things can come from a band that named itself after a farm-equipment company. But Seattle's twang rockers Massy Ferguson are not as hayseed as you'd expect. Their songs are steeped in the classic Americana of the Blasters, the Jayhawks, and the Backsliders. Rich with imagery of highways, truck-stop coffee, whiskey, road weariness, and bad motels, Massy Ferguson makes cinematic music about the blue-collar aspects of our country. This is what Jay Ferrar might sound like without his thesaurus.

12 - MOORE, IAN - AERIE - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


Ian Moore has been many things in his 25-year career: a fiery young blues-rock guitarist out of Austin, anintrospective balladeer singing heartbreak in falsetto, and a show-stopping bandleader directing the gloriousmiscreants who make up the Lossy Coils. In a time where artists increasingly focus on becoming more streamlinedand easily discernible, Ian has done the complete opposite, diversifying and recombining, searching for newsounds and ideas, and following his own unique designs. This inspired his latest concept, a three-EP projectencompassing his three primary musical focuses. On Aerie, the instrumentation is sparse, and the themes areshadowy and contemplative. Using guitar, cello, vibraphone, and voice, Ian sets a deeply rendered tone,intentionally naked and vulnerable.

13 - MOORE, IAN -& THE LOSSY COILS- - EL SONIDO NUEVO - (LP) 
SPARK & SHINE


Ian Moores seventh studio album and first for Spark & Shine, El Sonido Nuevo, finds him playing the frontman to a classic power trio, The Lossy Coils. Joined by Matt Harris (Oranger, The Posies) and Kyle Schneider, Moore has created a lush pop introduction that follows the same Beatles-by-the-way-of-BigStar thread that has informed the best work of contemporaries like Wilco. Moores chops are on full display on the insistent album opener, "Secondhand Store", which contains the first of many top-shelf melodies. The album doesnt let up as it alternates between rockers and flat-out gorgeous ballads. Ians lead guitar work is truly inspired throughout. This LP contains a digital download card.

14 - MOORE, IAN -& THE LOSSY COILS- - EL SONIDO NUEVO - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


El Sonido Nuevo, the seventh studio record from Austin-raised, Seattle-based singer-songwriter Ian Moore, bridges the gap between the stylistic offshoots of his past few records and the guitar-slinging bravado that characterized his earlier, often bluesier, output. "The album is a retrenching in the face of a diffuse pop culture landscape," says Moore, now fronting power-pop trio the Lossy Coils for El Sonido Nuevo. "Every band has ten members, every movie is a sequel, there are 500 channels and nothings on."

15 - REVOLT REVOLT - LATAH NIGHTS - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


RevoltRevolt formed in 2007, headed by front man Chris Bock, and Seattle bassist Ben Brunn of The Nevada Bachelors.

17 - THEE SGT. MAJOR III - THE IDEA FACTOR - (LP) 
SPARK & SHINE


In 1979, legendary Seattle guitarist/producer Kurt Bloch formed The Fastbacks. They made bright, tight and explosive music that wasnt quite Punk, not quite Pop and totally distinct. When they disbanded in 2001, Bloch initiated a new band, Sgt. Major, recruiting Young Fresh Fellows band mate Jim Sangster and ex-Posie Mike Musburger. In 2007, the current incarnation took shape with Leslie Beattie (Cantona, Flatpack) on vocals. Theirdebut, The Idea Factory, contains Blochs trademark wit,optimism and feisty schoolboy angst. The 13 songs are a sort of controlled explosion, the recipe for which: take a 1960s pop music machine and stuff it with The Who and some Ramonesy punk rock. This is the VINYL release of the CD solicited in August

Eugene Wendell Kwabena Copeland has been haunted by Boschs "Garden Of Earthly Delights" morbid renderings since pulling the book of paintings from the shelf as a small child. In The Kinks "Lola Vs. The Powerman & Money-go-Round Part 1" - the group sings hand-biting pop as the swarm of pop-stardom envelops them to the dying strains of "got to be free".The painting and Kinks record started a series of events that ledour hero to Vashon Islands El Estacado studio many years later to conjure up musical demons with shamanic guitarist, singer and producer Ian Moore. Meet Me In The Garden. is an exorcism of ripened, fermenting life to the soundtrack of early 70s guitar

20 - WILLOUGHBY, RUSTY - COBIRDS UNITE - (CD) 
SPARK & SHINE


A Pacific Northwest mainstay, Rusty Willoughby has been writing, recording and performing since 1982. Largelyknown for his work with Pure Joy, Flop and Llama, Willoughbys mostly lo-key, often lo-fi and lo-electricity records have flown under the radar for the last decade or so. Influenced by everything from Woody Guthrie to Jacques Brel, Willoughbys solo output is difficult to categorize and seemingly patterned after the most viscerally stubborn and commercially inept western minds and talents of the last century. Meet the new album, Cobirds Unite. Willoughbys twenty first century bandmates make for the lushest outing yet. Barrett Martin, Barb Antonio,Margrethe Bjorklund, Rachel Flotard, Johnny Sangster, Scott Sutherland, Lisa King and Tillman Herb help to create an ethereal, natural unfolding topography. Cobirds Unite was recorded in late Spring/early Summer of 2009 at Crackle and Pop by Sangster and Willoughby.
