Lullabies To Paralyze

Top/ Fever Ray (Rabid Records, 2009) is the debut solo album from Fever Ray, an alias of Karin Dreijer Andersson of the electronic duo The Knife, formed in Sweden with her brother Olof Dreijer and currently on hiatus. It was widely praised. Andersson was previously the vocalist and guitarist of the alternative rock band Honey Is Cool. Her vocal style is notable for both shrill and deep, distorted tones combined with her distinctive accent and the use of pitch-shifting, while her image as a performer tends to include the wearing of masks and other theatrical elements. "If I Had a Heart", the first single of the album, was released digitally on 15 December 2008. In 2009 the collection of feminist pornographic shorts Dirty Diaries was released with a soundtrack composed by Andersson. The Knife have listed David Lynch, Laurie Anderson, Aki Kaurismäki, Korean cinema, Trailer Park Boys, Donnie Darko, Doom, and Black Hole as inspirations for their work. In addition, Olof Dreijer cited techno, grime, and Southern hip hop, while Andersson named Sonic Youth, Kate Bush, dEUS, Le Tigre and Siouxsie and the Banshees. Bottom/ Cosmic tunes for the party tonight. Acid Washed is a two-man process primarily, following the blueprint devised over the past year by Richard D’Alpert and Andrew Claristidge: two DJ’s keen on using modern and vintage equipment to create sophisticated electronics with a sharp pop aesthetic. The result is the self-titled Acid Washed (Records Makers, 2010), a fusion of late nineties French house vibes and DFA disco touches that acknowledges the influence of Chicago and Detroit without being overly reverential. Throw names like Steve Reich and Giorgio Moroder into the hat as well if you like. Artistic direction for the project comes from British designer Anthony Burrill. His striking, geometric visuals adorn their record sleeves as well as providing the hypnotic, focal point of their music videos and visceral live show.

Duchess Of Coolsville

Joanna Newsom is a harpist, pianist, harpsichordist, singer and songwriter from Nevada City, California. A follow-up to the The Milk-Eyed Mender (2004), her second album Ys (Drag City, 2006) (top) was named for a mythical city in Brittany, and features full orchestra arrangements by Van Dyke Parks and mixing by Drag City label-mate Jim O'Rourke. While the media have labeled her as one of the most prominent members of the modern psych folk movement, Newsom's songwriting incorporates elements of Appalachian music, avant-garde modernism, and African kora rhythms. On February 23, 2010 Drag City released Have One on Me as the official follow up to the harpirst's highly acclaimed second studio release, 2006's Ys. It is a triple album produced by herself and mixed by long-time collaborators Jim O'Rourke and Noah Georgeson, with the accompanying arrangements by Ryan Francesconi. Have One on Me received perfect scores and extremely positive evaluations by many publications, as well as earning Newsom favorable comparisons to other singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro, Rickie Lee Jones and Kate Bush. Allison Stewart of The Washington Post called Have One on Me "her magnum opus, a three-disc set being likened to a freak-folk Sandinista!, though it feels more like a musical Ulysses." Spin's Andy Beta expressed that Newsom "gives what few artists can deliver: a self-contained world of warmth, crystalline detail, and intimacy that lies far beyond a Twitter feed" in his 4 star review. Will Dean of The Guardian pointed that "at two-hours-plus, it's a record that demands concentration to appreciate its splatterings of beauty. But pour yourself a glass and listen, because they don't make them like this too often."

Break The Night With Colour

Bottom/ Fredo Viola is an American singer/songwriter and multi-media artist. He was born in London, England, but has resided in the United States for most of his life. He graduated from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, but has always been most passionate about music. Viola lists some influential artists, such as Shostakovich, Britten, Bartok, Stravinsky and Belle & Sebastian. In 2004, "Let the Sad Out" was licensed for use in Jonathan Demme’s film The Manchurian Candidate. In 2007, he signed with French label Because Music. He released his debut album, The Turn, on December 2008. Most recently, "The Sad Song" was used in the 2008 film Birds of America. Viola currently lives in Woodstock, N.Y. Top/ In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Julia Stone of Australian singer-songwriter duo Angus & Julia Stone revealed she recorded a solo album in New York in late 2008. Her song "This Love" appears in the 2009 Australian film The Waiting City. She has described the album as mellow but darker and spookier in tone than the brother-sister duo's 2010 album Down The Way. On August 24, she confirmed the album would be called The Memory Machine. Both Angus and Julia have distinctive vocal styles. Their song "Big Jet Plane" came first on Triple J's Hottest 100 for 2010. The Sydney Morning Herald's Bernard Zuel described their vocals as such: "Her voice has a fractured feel like Jolie Holland; his has a smoke-on-the-beach drawl." UK journalist Johnny Sharp stated, "Most impressive, though, are the songs - simple but blindingly effective acoustic compositions, warm boy-girl harmonies and delicate, less-is-more arrangements. Resistance is surely futile."

Sons Of The Silent Age

Absolute Dissent (Spinefarm Records, 2010) is the fourteenth studio album by Killing Joke. Absolute Dissent has the sludgy sonic quality of their 2006 release Hosannas from the Basements of Hell, much of the same metal influence of their 2003 album Killing Joke, and the melodic grandeur of 1986's Brighter Than a Thousand Suns. Apocalypse, geopolitics, population, societal control, and random acts of kindness are some of the main themes in the album. The opening track, "Absolute Dissent", with its chopping guitar, the frantic dance beat, the hymn-like chorus, and the apocalyptic content, sounds utterly euphoric somehow mimic their classic 1980 song "Pssyche". The album's second track, "The Great Cull", is a heavy song in the style of their 2003 album, Killing Joke. It talks about Malthusianism, the Codex Alimentarius for creating a sick population, water fluoridation and dopamine increased in the brain, chemtrails, malleable population, and mass control to maintain the population preferably around 500 million. Single "European Super State", the most commercial track on the album, is a mixture of dance-punk, UK hard house, and electronic body music, with a soundscape fitting of Depeche Mode's Violator era. It is a continuation of their convictions about the European dream. Q magazine gave the album a rating of four stars out of five, pointing out that "The post-punk provocateurs' 13th album finds them straddling post-millennial metal and ritualistic pounding, Jaz Coleman still roaring like he's the only sane person in a world of fools". Killing Joke are an English post-punk band formed in October 1978 in Notting Hill, London, England. Founding members Jaz Coleman (vocals, keyboards) and Geordie Walker (guitars) have been the only constant members. A key influence on industrial rock, their early music was described by critics Stephen Thomas Erlewine and John Dougan as "quasi-metal ... dancing to a tune of doom and gloom," which gradually evolved over the years, incorporating elements of electronic music, synth-pop, gothic rock and alternative rock, though always emphasising Coleman's "savagely strident vocals."
