Prince Buju ‘We Are In The War’ CD/LP

Prince Buju (real name Aduko Saabo) is a Kologo musician from the north of Ghana. He has a rough and direct voice which he uses to sing emotionally charged songs. These deal with loss and disaster, war and hatred, and with people who should realize that, if they want to have a happier life, they should change their ways. With only two strings and one grinding voice he cuts through borders and languages and reaches out to the rest of the world. Many of the songs on We Are In War were previously released on casette in Ghana. Though Prince Buju is a dedicated rastafarian, his music -as a style- has little to do with roots reggae. If you enjoyed the Makkum release of King Ayisoba, you’ll love this one too!

CD version released in February 2015, LP to follow 6th of April.


Kurws ‘All That Is Solid Melts Into Air’ LP

(the) Kurws formed in May 2008 as an unexpected result of a ping pong session. Since then they have pursued their own search, not so much in defined genres, but within the very foundations of rock, expression, and sound. It is a workshop where improvisation penetrates through composed material, a congealed form of the creation process. Armed with repetitions, recombinations, variations and contrasts, they frolic with memory and expectations. Post punk, krautrock, rock in opposition, funk, no wave – they present modes of playing, motives, and riffs we have heard time and time again in a totally different context, dissected from their original environment, placed side by side, used in a brand new manner, deconstructed and distilled.

Their debut album “Hole in the ghetto” was released in 2011 in Europe in a joint venture by Qulturap, Oficyna Biedota, Trująca Fala, and Blinded, and in the US by Bat Shit Records. The band has played numerous gigs throughout Europe and are faithful henchmen of DIY principles.

Depending on the circumstances, the band functions as a trio:

Dawid Bargenda (drums)
Hubert Kostkiewicz (guitar)
Kuba Majchrzak (bass)

… or as a quartet/quintet, enriched with one or several of the following members:

Piotrek Zabrodzki (LXMP, Baaba, Efekt Moozgu) – synthesizer (2012 -)
Oskar Carls (Saigon, Davaj) – saxophone (2012 -)
Piotr Łyszkiewicz – saxophone (2013 – )

Ex members: Krzysztof Tokarski – saxophone (2009 – 2012), Wojciech Bajda – bass clarinet, clarinet B (2011-2012)

Keith John Adams ‘Roughhousing’ LP

Vinyl co-release on 4 labels: Vacilando ‘68 in the UK, Red Wig in Germany, PIAPTK in Tucson, Arizona & Gray Sky from San Francisco.

Peculiar vinyl mastering: The digital version of the album is a recording of the vinyl album being played on a vintage hi-fi turntable, replete with suface noise and the odd pop. It’s available on CD and from the usual online stores from Functional Electric in the UK.

Keith John Adams says the title of his new album, Roughhousing, is both a description of the recording and a mission statement. The tracks were bashed out at speed to maintain the fun and excitement of recording and to give them a chaotic edge. Adams played nearly all the instruments in a series of sessions around his home town, London. Like a character actor, he adopted different personas for the different instruments to give the recording more of a band sound - despite it being a multi-tracked single musician. Keeping the rough edges also helped it sound more like a rehearsal tape - as was the plan. The tracks Change, No Room & Music In My Feet have already been played on the BBC’s 6Music in the UK. Keith John Adams and the Wildlife will be playing shows in Europe and the US in 2015.

Of the Music in My Feet/No Room double a-side:
“The contrast of sounds is brilliant... This single is great” SEESOUND
“Good wholesome fun from start to finish. This is honest, open and catchy music” WHISPERIN AND HOLLERIN’

Roughhousing is KJA’s 4th solo album after a slow 6 years, prompted chiefly by becoming a father of two. He’s been making music solo since the start of the century though, chiefly in the US where the Athens, Georgia based HHBTM label released two of his albums. That led to tours playing on bills with Of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel, Apples in Stereo, Deerhoof and Mountain Goats. He’s also toured Japan with HHBTM label mates Elekibass.

“Great non-programatic pop” THE WIRE
“Addictively fun and off-beat” TREBLEZINE
“Joyously upbeat, reminiscent of Macca at his most catchy” RECORD COLLECTOR

The first three solo albums:
2002’s Sunshine Loft, a quirky folk-pop live recording made in a loft in east London with some longtime collaborators including Rhodri Marsden, currently playing keyboards for Scritti Politti, Matt Armstrong, currently playing bass on Bill Fay’s new records, and an occasional dripping cistern.
2005’s Pip, a fun pop freak-beat affair recorded in London by Ant Chapman of Collapsed Lung.
2008’s Unclever, a garage rock/pop album recorded in Athens GA with Casper and the Cookies (ex Of Montreal) as backing band. KJA wrote and recorded personal songs for the first 40 people to pre-order Unclever from the label, a gruelling assignment that was written about in the Guardian. It took six weeks of almost constant writing and recording.

The more youthful KJA was the singer and driving force behind the 1990s band, Zuno Men. The Melody Maker put them in their A to Z of Crusty, perhaps for want of any other bands beginning with Z. Their 1997 single, Stay in with Me, was Single of the Week on Mark Radcliffe and Mark Riley’s BBC Radio 1 afternoon show. They were labelled art-skiffle by the NME, and the description still often holds true for KJA’s sometimes folky, sometimes garagey, odd-ball pop music.

Released 1st December 2014.

Great album by this guy from London. Filled with clever, catchy and witty, joyously upbeat and uplifting pop songs! Sounds smart and makes you feel good from start to finish. One song is called "Music In My Feet", and that's exactly what it sound and feels like. http://www.x-mist.de/band/6054/keith_john_adams

'Medicine' by Trash Kit, taken from their forthcoming album 'Confidence' on Upset The Rhythm. The record will be out december 1st and red wig will have a couple of copies for sale as well.


PRINCE BUJU - IN THE WAR

A great tune: Late January 2014, Ghana, Accra, North Kanishie, just outside King Ayisoba's bar, sitting with Abayete and King Ayisoba, his brother and friends. King Buju gets the kologo and plays a fantastic song. Arnold filmed it with the help of the light on his phone.


KEITH JOHN ADAMS - MUSIC IN MY FEET


This song is available as a double a-side with No Room for free at http://keithjohnadams.bandcamp.com - released officially in the usual digital stores in September. Both songs feature on the forthcoming album, Roughhousing.


IT LOOKED SHORTER ON THE MAP by OTPMD


New Video: IT LOOKED SHORTER ON THE MAP by OTPMD from Le Gentil Garçon on Vimeo.

From the new album, ROTOROTOR, release on march 31st on Moi J'connais Records and Red Wig.
Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp presents ROTOROTOR, a thrilling third album produced by John Parish (P.J Harvey, Eels, Giant Sand, Dominique A…) and recorded by Ali Chant at Toybox Studio in Bristol. ROTOROTOR (a nod to Duchamp's famous rotoreliefs and to the latter's taste for palindromes) is a manifesto for free and adventurous music, organised in versatile pop songs; playful and fervent, incandescent, funny and impetuous, assuming without ostentation a sort of fragmented futurist traditionalism, combining festivity and war, wedding dances and battle-cries.

Le troisième disque (Rotorotor) de l'Orchestre, produit par John Parish (P.J Harvey, Eels, Giant Sand, Dominique A…) est enregistré par Ali Chant au Toybox Studio à Bristol. Ce qu'on entend ici c'est un groupe au syncrétisme épuré, aux lignes nettes et anguleuses à l'intérieur des quelles un curseur affolé se déplace sans cesse d'une intensité à l'autre, l'imagination toujours en mouvement. Rotorotor est un manifeste de musique libre et aventureuse, organisée en popsongs versatiles, tour à tour ludiques et ferventes, incandescentes, drôles et emportées, assumant sans effet de manche une espèce de traditionalisme futuriste à fragmentation, de multiples identités chatoyantes, un art conjugué de la fête et de la guerre, danses nuptiales et chants de bataille jetés ensemble sur le plancher défoncé.
