Joyfultalk
Plurality Trip

Do bands still get 'signed' to labels in our year of the lord 2018? If so, Joyfultalk is the newest contract artist for the unimpeachable Constellation Records, the experimental Montreal imprint that seem to be deep-diving into electronic music of late. A project of electronic artist Jay Crocker, Pluraity Trip...view item »


Godspeed You! Black Emperor
ALLELUJAH! DON'T BEND! ASCEND!

It was a genuine surprise to all of us earlier this week when the mighty Godspeed You! Black Emperor announced the near-instantaneous release of this new album after a full decade’s studio silence, and I’ve emotionally blackmai...view item »


Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress

We thought we'd lost them forever but here they are with their first single length album since their very earliest days. Recorded in late 2013/14 with Greg Norman (not the golfer but the Electrical Audio engineer), 'Asunder, Sweet and other Distress' is described as Godspeed's most focussed and best sounding record to date. Clocking in at an ana...view item »


Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven

Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s excellent second album, first released back in 2000. Awing in its scope and ambition, and uniquely optimistic and joyful within the band’s discography. I’ll never forget when I first heard the trumpets creeping in during ‘Storm’, or on ‘Sleep’ where a New Yo...view item »


Ought
More Than Any Other Day

Politicised Montreal indie rockers Ought have a debut album out on the legendary Constellation rex this week and it's pretty ace. This is straight down the line '90s indie rock with a slightly lo-fi physical immediacy to it that brings to mind bands like Rodan and June of 44 crossed wi...view item »


Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers

Post-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor return to another world phase of political turmoil and humanitarian crisis, with a record of their usual oblique serenade. Following the format of the two records of their modern era, it features four songs in sum and continues to rebrand them as God's Pee ...view item »


Jerusalem In My Heart
Daqa’iq Tudaiq

Montréal audiovisual duo Jerusalem in my Heart (Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and filmmaker Charles-André Coderre) return after three years with Daqa’iq Tudaiq. Set to excite such blogs ‘n’ mags as The Wire, A Closer Listen and The Quietus as much as did its predecessor If He Dies, If If If If If If, the a...view item »


Jessica Moss
Entanglement

Entanglement is album number three from Jessica Moss. Moss earned her stripes with a fifteen year stint in Canadian post-everything band Thee Silver Mt. Zion (and all variations on that name). She has also worked with such luminaries as Vic Chesnutt and Ca...view item »


Sandro Perri
In Another Life

Sandro Perri's newest record sees the avant-folk musician bringing in new aesthetics previously explored in his electronic project Off World. Utilising gorgeous guitar meanderings alongside creaking, squelching, zapping synths, he offers a twenty-plus minute track made with the aim of sounding "infinite". V...view item »


Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Yanqui U.X.O.

Canada’s post-rock heroes Godspeed You! Black Emperor have long been Norman favourites so the chances are that you already know everything there is to know about them. For the uninitiated who find themselves here, Yanqui U.X.O. was their third album from 2002. It was recorded by Steve Albini...view item »


Colin Stetson And Sarah Neufeld
Never Were The Way She Was

Available on 12” vinyl LP or CD from Constellation. Colin Stetson’s is renowned for his unique style with tenor and bass sax. Melding polyrhythmic blasts and clanks with prolonged and evolving drones as well as simultaneously vocalising through the mouthpiece. Joining forces with violinist Sarah Neufeld ...view item »


Do Make Say Think
Stubborn Persistent Illusions

The first album in eight years from this long running Toronto collective. Now in their third decade, the group have created a critically acclaimed back catalogue and have become one of the most venerated names in the post rock canon. Stubborn Persistent Illusions is another example of the bands DIY ethos all recorded and produced t...view item »


Efrim Manuel Menuck
Pissing Stars

Extremely exciting news! It's onwards and upwards with the rebrand of Godspeed to God's Pee, the post-rock stalwarts here giving their frontman leave to make Pissing Stars. It's the second solo record from Efrim Manuel Menuck, following the meandering chamber st...view item »


Automatisme
Transit

Automatisme is the recording moniker for Canadian electronic musician, producer and record store employee, William Jourdain. His fourth physical album release, Transit, is his second for Constellation. The album is informed by organic time signatures such as heart rate and ocean waves as well as the more mechani...view item »


Alanis Obomsawin
Bush Lady

Rare and underrated, Alanis Obomsawin's Bush Lady is a cult classic finally gaining new listeners through Montreal's Constellation. Considering the lives lived by Canada's First Nations, and the political threats to their existence, the record is both a crucial sonic document and activist statement, offer...view item »


Colin Stetson
Those Who Didn't Run

Colin Stetson is a name I know little about and, even though we sold a shed-load, I somehow managed to miss his much talked about 'New History Warfare Vol 1 & 2' albums. Stetson is a Bass and Alto sax player making a living recording/performing with the likes of Bon Ivor, Tom Waits, ...view item »


Carla Bozulich

One of Constellation Record's secret weapons, Carla Bozulich returns with Quieter an album of fleshed out unreleased tracks. The press release only compares her to other female musicians (rightly including the likes of Jenny Hval, Grouper, Noveller...view item »


Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada EP

Godspeed's most succinct document, Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada consists of two compositions -- one named "Moya", dedicated to one of the band's founding members, which builds around intricate orchestration towards a simple, cathartic climax (hey dudes, it sounds simple, but it's post-rock). "Bl...view item »


Jason Sharp
Stand Above The Streams

If you can't get enough of Colin Stetson then try Jason Sharp. He also plays the saxophone and uses it to make immersive and layered electro-acoustic music. Following the phenomenal and Norman-loved A Boat Upon Its Blood, he produces four ten minute pieces which he says is an abstracted survey of o...view item »


Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
Hang On To Each Other

Hot on the heels of their latest album, Thee Silver Mt Zion Basketball Choir and Handstand Band return with a remix 12". It's not remixes of songs from the new album, though, that'd be too obvious. These are actually dramatic reinventions of 'Hang On To Each Other' from 2005's brilliant 'Horses In The Sky', transformed from a lo-fi campfire lame...view item »


A Silver Mt Zion
Born Into Trouble

The A Silver Mt Zion LP (Born Into Trouble) sounds really good on first hearing. Very floaty in places, incredibly intense at others, big dollops of atmosphere dripping from every available orifice. Folks from Godspeed in case you didn't know. And the vinyl comes with a free poster. Nice!...view item »

Ought
Once More With Feeling

Constellation's very own rock 'n' roll band, Ought, came screeching out of the barriers earlier this year, with a record that recalled guitar geniuses such as Slint, the Talking Heads, Television and all other creative riff-makers. 'Once More With Feeling' is the follow-up EP to 'More Than Any Other Day' and doesn't let up on the band's&nbs...view item »


Eric Chenaux
Slowly Paradise

Sounding like he's playing jazz and folk influenced guitar pieces whilst sitting in the hull of a tugboat on a particularly windy day, Eric Chenaux has a totally unique seasick sound that is ripe with invention. He blurs the lines between avant garde modern composition and the type of lop-sided fretwork also explored by the like...view item »

Joni Void
Selfless

Joni Void has already been through several artistic stages, despite his young age. After a whirl of self-released material, Selfless is the project’s first label-released album, and it is made entirely out of micro-samples, carefully sourced and then re-processed musique concrete style into the catchy, sometimes g...view item »

Ought
Sun Coming Down

Sun Coming Down is the much anticipated second full length from the Montreal quartet who have found love across the globe with their debut album which topped many end of year lists with it's twitchy economical sound and yelped David Byrne-like vocal delivery. This new album continues in that angular manner, an unpolished ...view item »


Off World

Off World got off to a flying start last year with I, a record released as part of a trilogy of electronic works on Constellation echoing back to their Musique Fragile Series.

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band
13 Blues For Thirteen Moons

Both Phil and I tried to get into the latest Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-LaBand. This is way too clever for me as I just got confused at it starting on track 13 but it now makes sense as it is called '13 Blues For Thirteen Moons'. There are elements of this that are interesting but they're completely overshadowed by the grea...view item »


Do Make Say Think
And Yet And Yet

Also quite liked the Do Make Say Think LP but to me it wasn't enormously different to the others. But then I did only get chance to play it once this week.

Do Make Say Think
Other Truths

Do Make Say Think kick their new one off with one of their best tunes to date in 'Do' (the other tracks are called 'Make', 'Say' and 'Think'.. Yeah, I know). It's quite the little rocker, sporting chugging guitars and a cheeky little riff that keeps popping up like a persistent wee meerkat who just won't stay dead. It's quite poppy actually, remind...view item »


Eric Chenaux
Skullsplitter

Sometimes you gotta keep the unknowing masses at a distance. That’s what Eric Chenaux must have thought, because Skullsplitter is not filled with extremely hardcore techno. In fact, it’s overflowing with gentle and beautiful soundscapes, straight from his skull to the vinyl. Maybe that’s where the name...view item »


Sandro Perri
Spaced Out

Sandro Perri’s ‘Impossible Spaces’ was an absolute revelation, a stunning mix of Jeff Buckley-meets-Arthur Russell indie-soul and loungey jazz arrangements with a silky languorous feel which has since withstood many, many plays on the home stereo. On this 12” three of his tracks are give...view item »

Do Make Say Think
Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn

Do Make Say Think are my favourite of the Constellation bands. They avoid the unrelenting pomposity of your Godspeeds but have the melodic and arranging know-how to create records that are varied, emotional and huge in scope. Being a wanker muso, I'd say that the best thing about this record are the...view item »

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche
Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche want to play! Their new album Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much is a vibrant brew of ecstatic dance rock via psychedelic deserts: wordless vocals, sharp and clean guitars, irresistibly flowing rhythms. Properly trance-inducing stuff. The album is released by Constellation: the vinyl ve...view item »


Siskiyou
Siskiyou

This begins like Arcade Fire doing an anti-folk number before falling into a hole that David Berman might have dug one day whilst thinking of directions to take the Silver Jews in. Or possibly a ramshackle downbeat hybrid of Bon Iver & Fire on Fire? This is the new project of some former & current Great Lake Swimmers members. It's all a ...view item »


Siskiyou
Nervous

Siskiyou use whispered lyrics, stacked acoustic guitars and stripped back minimal melody and drums to evoke a tightly-wound man haunted by something unknown. Inspired by lead singer Colin Huebert's year of illness and anxiety, the record captures the internal psychological terror and unease of his experiences. The deluxe 180g LP...view item »


Carla Bozulich
Evangelista

I don't think anything can prepare someone for this album. It opens up ways to feel that are so vulnerable, yet so necessary in this world in my opinion. A generous album is a vague description.

Momentform Accumulations

One from the autumn flurry of Constellation releases, Momentform Accumulations is an offering of instrumental experiments based around ambient, techno and noise, recalling the DJed post-rock of 1-speed-bike from back in the label's old days. Automatisme is the project of the Que...view item »


Hiss Tracts
Shortwave Nights

Two debut albums in the space of a month from Constellation. When was the last time that happened? The LP of angular indie rock from Montreal's Ought is very good of course, but this Hiss Tracts one is a different kettle of fish entirely (I don't mean it's bad!). It's a droney affair from the veteran superduo of Dav...view item »

Jason Sharp
A Boat Upon Its Blood

Constellation's fall batch includes a new signing in Jason Sharp, whose music feels both quintessentially out-Montreal and also incredibly fresh: a saxophonist and sound artist, his music absorbs drone, techno and musique concrete, weaving together instrumental anthologies that cross all three paths. There are horrendo...view item »

Coin Coin Chapter Three: River Run Thee

River Run Thee is the third entry in Matana Roberts' so far incredible 12-part musical tapestry (as she called it for part two, "sound quilting") about civil rights and the history of creativity in America. Roberts' discipline is jazz, specifically avant compositions on saxophone, but, as implied with her invo...view item »

I seem to be getting a lot of reviews of apparently legendary people I've never encountered before. The latest of these is Matana Roberts's new offering on Constellation.

Everything you'd expect from a Rebecca Foon solo outing. Interesting strings, other worldly percussion, gentle vocals.
