1 - GANGSTERS, THE - THE GANGSTERS - (LP)    UPDATED
ALBINA MUSIC TRUST


Recorded in the early 70s, this collection of instrumentals is a crystal clear glimpse into a forgotten period of Portlands music history. Fostered by the Albina Art Center, a hangout spot for creatively-inclined black youth, The Gangsters were led by trumpeter Thara Memory, who wrote and arranged all of their material, and produced the sessions heard on this vinyl-only release. After gigging around the city for a few years, the group-who were almost all in their late teens-laid down some tracks at Ripcord Studios, but they disbanded soon thereafter and the tapes sat in a closet, unheard for over 40 years.Rescued from obscurity, the tracks on this album have all the punch and hip-swinging joy of fellow jazz/funk artists like The Crusaders, Weather Report and Pleasure. But with Thara Memory leading the charge, the music has a rich complexity, best exemplified by the nine-minute "Suite for Funk Band," which runs through a series of movements that touch on Latin grooves and post-bop before culminating in an almost-psychedelic breakdown capped off by a devastating guitar solo.For many members of The Gangsters, their careers would continue to flourish. The late Thara Memory became a renowned educator and won a Grammy for his work with Esperanza Spalding on her 2013 album Radio Music Society. Jimmy and Johnny Sanders toured in B.B. Kings band throughout his final decade of performance. Bassist Lester McFarland would go on to play with jazz icons The Crusaders, The Jeff Lorber Fusion and Tom Grant. But what this record captures is lightning in a bottle, a period when these young men crossed paths and created a burst of energy and light.From start to finish, The Gangsters has been a community production completed 100% locally in Portland, Oregon. This vinyl-only release by Albina Music Trust comes with a beautifully-designed 12-page booklet featuring archival photos and advertisements from The Gangsters heyday, and an oral history of the band, told to executive producer Bobby Smith by the groups surviving members. Covers have been printed on Stumptown custom Kraft Duplex paperboard. The record has been keenly transferred by Dave Fulton and mastered by Gus Elg.

4 - GEORGIA/A MAN CALLED ADAM - SCHLEISSEN 7 - (12")    NEW
EMOTIONAL RESPONSE


The seventh instalment in the 'Scheissen' series welcomes another two intriguing and smartly selected propositions in the Emotional Response sublabel's continued exploration of the depth and breadth of ambient music. New York wild cards Georgia present five different musings on richly melodic electronica ranging from the delicate to the delightfully bonkers (one of the duo's strong points). The curveball addition of A Man Called Adam is a smart one - Sally Rodgers and Steve Jones surprise everyone with five engrossing and diverse "sketches" that leap from scatty sample manipulation to spacious drone and back again.

8 - GLASS, SAMANTHA - NINE MEMORIES BETWEEN IMPRESSION AND IMPRINT - (LP)    UPDATED
HOLODECK


Enigmatic Austin based producer/starlet Samantha Glass untangles their gorgeously twisted mind on the ambitious new full length Nine Memories Between Impression and Imprint out October 12th, 2018. Since 2010, Beau Devereaux has chronicled their romantic and turbulent process of self-identification as Samantha Glass through the use of electronics, field recordings and a seductive, baritone voice. Abstract soundscapes rise and fall around addictively brooding ballads and introspective monologues as Glass deconstructs themself beneath the weight of their poetry and lyrics. Nine Memories Between Impression and Imprint unveils an allure through vulnerability, elegantly depicting the endless audition of becoming Samantha Glass.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Dancing Against Reality 02. Carriers Of The Wind 03. Putting The Male To Rest 04. Cruel Anxiety 05. From Behind Our Wings 06. Addicted To Sweating 07. Discreet & Perfect For Travel 08. The Carpenter In Us All

10 - GOLD, ETHAN- WITH JOHN GRANT AND THE STAVES - SWAY LAKE - (7")    UPDATED
ELECTRIK GOLD


"Ethan Golds new double-A-side vinyl single "Sway Lake," from the film The Song of Sway Lake, is a limited-edition talisman from a film about characters fixated with the past, and searching for old records in a grand lake house in the Adirondack Park. The inimitable John Grant sings the haunting, quiet moonlight Lost Record Version, arranged to sound like a small group of musicians in 1939 playing after midnight in a barn. His range as a vocalist brings a pathos and gravity that is timeless, utterly convincing as a 30s performance and filled with emotion and longing.English sisters trio The Staves sing the brassy daylight Big Band Version, arranged as if it were a pop hit of 1947, all brash tight three-part harmonies, reflecting the razzle dazzle arrogance and exuberance of post-War America. Swing your honey around the dance floor! The single was mixed by Flood"

11 - GOLD, ETHAN- WITH JOHN GRANT AND THE STAVES - THE SONG OF SWAY LAKE - (CD)    UPDATED
ELECTRIK GOLD


The album. Part 1: The Song of Sway Lake contains the full film score in sequence. Two radically different versions of Ethans original title song open. Sway Lake (Lost Record Version), sung by the inimitable John Grant, is arranged to sound as its described in the film: a secret recording of the composer singing with a small group of his friends on the eve the US entry into the War, pressed onto 78 and given to the glamorous Charlie and Hal Sway on their wedding day. This is followed by Sway Lake (Big Band Version), sung by the stellar trio of English sisters The Staves. As its told in the film, this version was a big hit after the War, with all the razzle-dazzle, pride, and arrogance of America in the late 40s. The score, like the film, is contemplative, romantic, and bittersweet. Sparse and pianodriven, there are also shades of otherworldliness and dread from the trumpet of Jon Hassell and paintbrush guitar of Fred Frith. The longings of the bitter young Ollie, the charismatic Russian Nikolai, the grand and pretentious Charlie, and the ghosts of the piano-playing war hero Hal Sway and his record-collector son Timmy echo and mingle through the grand lodge, and out on the quiet lake under both sun and moon. After an intermission of Haitian big band music from the 1950s, we are treated to Part 2: Sketches of Sway, containing string arrangements, abandoned finales, and haunting sketches of the themes that ended up comprising the final score. Bringing us full circle, the record closes with two of Ethans demos of the song Sway Lake.

14 - GREAT BEYOND, THE - THE GREAT BEYOND - (CD)    UPDATED
THIS CHARMING MAN


One year after their well-received debut EP for This Charming Man, The Great Beyond from Munster, Germany unleash their first full-length LP upon fans of heavy psyched 70s rock! The band decided to step back from the predecessors rather relaxed guitar work and instead focus on highly dynamic, pushing riffing that relies much more on groove and pure rock energy. The vintage vibe is still present in abundance, combining the raw power of Queens of the Stone Age with a spectacular hard rock feeling. Fans of classics and the recent German 70s rock wave in particular should definitely get in on this release!

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Great Beyond 02. Slip Away 03. I'll Do It Again 04. Out Of Time 05. The Ride 06. Maddest Man 07. Quit 08. Trapped In The Net 09. Living Shadows 10. The Patient

16 - GUIRO MEETS RUSSIA - FOLK PSYCHOLOGY - (LP)    NEW
CANOA SNAKE


After his record debut in 2016 with Distopya -a work that caught the attention of international specialized media such as The Wire magazine- the electronic duo Guiro Meets Russia publishes its second LP 'Folk Psychology'. Juanvi Fortea and Paco Leon pick up the formula of analog synthesizers and electric guitars to revise in a very personal way the European proto-electronic heritage of krautrock and the rhythmic patterns of motorik. In this imaginary we find past references such as Neu!, Cluster, and more current ones such as Beak>, Kreidler or Boards Of Canada. It is an epic manifesto of collective despair. An emotional critique of the psychological mechanisms of mass manipulation in contemporary society.
