No Cover: A Carpark Covers Comp

Can you believe that it has been twenty one years since Carpark Records opened its doors? To celebrate, the New York label has asked artists past and present to do a cover song of their choosing. The Beths, Cloud Nothings, Dan Deacon, Dent May and Popstrangers are just some of the names taking part. A fine way for the label to become a fully fledged adult.

The Beths
Warm Blood

New Zealand four piece the Beths sprung to prominence with their debut album Future Me Hates Me but who knew they had already made a five track EP? Well here it is in all it's glory showcasing the catchy, buzzy sound that led Future Me Hates Me to be such a killer. Expect ear-friendly indie with nods to the Lemonheads, Flying Nun and Best Coast.  

Cloud Nothings
The Shadow I Remember

Following the Bandcamp-only release of 'The Black Hole Understands' - an album recorded under lockdown in 2020 - Dylan Baldi’s Cloud Nothings announce a more conventional studio album. Recorded with Steve Albini, the legendary producer who helped Cloud Nothings expand from Baldi’s bedroom project to full-blown band in 2012 with their excellent 'Attack On Memory' album, 'The Shadow I Remember' is in part a riotous return to basics for the post-hardcore outfit. However, the record also features certain other things for the first time, such as backing vocals and synthesiser parts.

The Beths
Future Me Hates Me

Carpark Records (Cloud Nothings, Toro Y Moi) present some fuzzy niceness from Kiwi quartet The Beths. Future Me Hates Me is a peppy synthesis of OG twee-grungers like The Lemonheads with the shy coyness found in the more recent fare of Yuck and Mitski. Nice harmonies, nice melodies, and the fact that the four members all have jazz chops ensures a higher level of musicianship that one usually finds on these sort of LPs.

Rituals of Mine
HYPE NOSTALGIA

An album about coming to terms with grief and trauma, Hype Nostalgia is Terra Lopez’s finest artistic achievement as Rituals Of Mine. Recorded to all intents and purposes as a solo artist (new drummer Adam Pierce joined only very recently), it’s an album of straightforward and empowering messages set to dark, futuristic R&B. 

Fat Tony
Exotica

Although he sounds like the sort of bloke who might have sold you a dodgy used car, Fat Tony is a Houston based regular in the rap game with appearances on ASAP Rock mixtapes and on Vice TV. His latest is an eclectic, ambitious work where a scan through the list of influences sees Kenny Rodgers rubbing shoulders with Outkast rubbing shoulders with Scritti Politti. How can this not be interesting?

Dent May
Late Checkout

Inspired by great American pop songwriters from Carole King to Randy Newman, James Dent May presents his fifth studio album Late Checkout. Having built his own studio since he completed a huge world tour for his last effort Across The Multiverse, May has had the opportunity to take his time on this one, and the rewards are tangible from first listen - it’s an accomplished and timeless work.

Madeline Kenney
Sucker's Lunch

To record her third long player, Oakland, California-based singer / songwriter Madeline Kenney enlisted the help of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack, better known as Baltimore duo, Wye Oak. Judging by the lead single, Sucker, the results of their efforts have produced some quite beautiful sun-dappled indie-folk.

Baldi / Gerycz
Blessed Repair

A splinter project from Cloud Nothings - of whom Dylan Baldi and Jayson Gerycz are both members - Blessed Repair is an expression of experimentalism freed from the pressure of expectations. With Baldi playing the saxophone and Gerycz on percussion, it’s the sound of two close friends and creators exploring different territory together.

The Beths
Jump Rope Gazers

Another round of scintillating power-pop from New Zealand’s The Beths, as they return with their second studio album Jump Rope Gazers. Written during the intense tours behind 2018’s acclaimed breakout Future Me Hates Me, Elizabeth Stokes and co. aim for very much the same mood, setting lyrics about worry and introversion to gregarious, bright rock. 

Sonic Boom
All Things Being Equal

What pleasing colours and shapes! Sonic Boom is the solo venture of Peter Kember, a one-time member of the groups Spacemen 3 and Spectrum. If you’ve forgotten all about this project, well, that’s understandable - Kember's only released on previous album as Sonic Boom, and that came out way back in 1990. He has returned, however, with 'All Things Being Equal', an LP that he was encouraged to make by Stereolab’s Tim Gane. It's a winner and all, a heavy-psych record full of spiral-staircase Krautrock tones and third-eye psych jams.

Laumė
Waterbirth

Laumė, rhymes with the surname of Kim Pflaum, formerly of Yumi Zouma. It is her synth pop project straight outta New Zealand. Waterbirth was made with the assistance of French producer Rude Jude and is inspired by the time she nearly drowned and was saved by two people thus getting a second chance. Musically she takes inspiration from singular female artists such as Sade, Kate Bush and Grimes.

Fat Tony and Taydex
Wake Up

Fat Tony is often to be found in the studio with A$AP Rocky and Das Racist. On Wake Up, he is paired with his good pal and producer, Taydex. Fat Tony’s raps are near the knuckle and detail his lifetime of experiences. This is the Nigerian-American rappers fifth album, but first album for Carpark.

Erin Anne
Tough Love

Released a few months ago in the summer, Tough Love was the much-anticipated full-length debut album from Erin Anne, and delivered on all the promise that her early output with REGI RKT had promised in its lo-fi yet determined energy. This new edition, via Carpark Records, comes on Coke bottle green coloured vinyl.

Rituals of Mine
Sleeper Hold

Created out of personal tragedy, with vocalist Terra Lopez experiencing the death of her father and her best friend within six months, Sleeper Hold is an intensely moving new EP from alternative R&B act Rituals of Mine. It’s presented here on a limited edition 12” opaque purple vinyl.

Emily Reo
Only You Can See It

Only You Can See It is Emily Reo's second album. It's upbeat and energetic and sounds like if pop stars used Game Boy's to make their tracks rather than Ableton. This collided with Reo's classical voice training makes for an album where anything feels possible. On top of everything the lyrics are deeply personal and poetic. On Carpark.

Toro Y Moi
Outer Peace

Toro Y Moi's prolific Chaz Bear moved for awhile to the wilds of Portland to make his previous album Boo Boo. Whilst there he got to thinking about how technology ruins our day to day lives and the constant instant gratification we experience. I hope this leads to a Toro Y Moi album that we can enjoy as much as his earlier albums as Chaz himself could possibly do with a step away from the computer to re-discover some form. 

Greys
Age Hasn't Spoiled You

If you believe what you read, Toronto post-punk band Greys have matured into a less noisy, more thoughtful band for their third album, Age Hasn’t Spoiled You. Judging by the track 'These Things Happen' that’s not necessarily the case. They still have that racket-making ability, coupled with an ear for melody. Basically, old fans have no need to worry. On Carpark.

Madeline Kenney
Perfect Shapes

Perfect Pitchfork-ready indie dreaming here from Madeline Kenney who has had her latest produced by Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak. She's previously been compared with Liz Phair and has worked extensively with Chaz Bear (Toro Y Moi). She's also getting ready to tour the UK and Europe just as soon as that 7.6 score comes in. 

Speedy Ortiz
Foil Deer

On gatefold 12” Vinyl or CD  both with pull-out poster, or as a limited edition gold 12” w/ chapbook and sticker. A cleaner, clearer, and almost less angsty sophomore album from Speedy Ortiz. Maybe Sadie Dupuis is all of the above as well. Pushing their sound away from something akin to Silkworm, and maturing with songs that are from a less unhappy place pushing into almost Pixies like territory.

Speedy Ortiz
Twerp Verse

Twerp Verse is the third album by Massachusetts indie-rockers, Speedy Ortiz. The band are fronted by ex-Teacher, songwriter and gnarly guitarist, Sadie Dupuis. They have been gaining a solid following over their seven years for their modern take on ‘90s american indie having toured with Thurston Moore, The Breeders and Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks. Available as pink with rainbow splatter vinyl LP, which also includes a bonus 7” and lyric insert, standard black vinyl LP with lyric insert, CD and Cassette.

Ed Schrader's Music Beat
Riddles

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat (which is Ed Schrader and his buddy Devlin Rice) decided to get serious with this record, enlisting pal and playful genius Dan Deacon as producer and close collaborator. Riddles benefits from a fleshed-out Deacon sound, which allows the Music Beat style to really shine and grow. On Carpark.

Palm
Rock Island

The nervously invigorating Palm have impressed us plenty already and return with an obnoxiously captivating record in Rock Island. It swerves away from their common, jangly lexicon and then points back towards it, offering a noisy, danceable, jubilant and melancholic record of stutter pop. They make loops sound like they're being played over and over, one at a time.

Dent May
Across The Multiverse

Despite singing about his desire to never move to LA in previous recordings, Mississippi-born musical whizz-kid Dent May has now done just that - apparently to change his backdrop and find new inspiration. After all, that’s where his heroes Brian Wilson, Harry Nilsson and Van Dyke Parks found theirs. His new album, Across The Multiverse is his most complete record yet. Whilst keeping his signature sound at its core, there is also refinement from the arrangements and song craft.

Toro Y Moi
Boo Boo

It really is about time Toro Y Moi made a good record. This one comes after a period of self reflection presumably after he realised how bad his previous record What For? was. Taking influence from artists ranging from Gigi Masin to Frank Ocean, initial impressions seem to be more R&B influenced with the dreaded autotune on show. You never show. If he ever does anything as good as Underneath the Pines again I will prepare my hat and eat it.  

Toro Y Moi
Live From Trona

A live album, done a little differently. Recorded in the middle of the Californian desert, with the Trona Pinnacles as backdrop and no-one there, it’s probably the perfect setting for laid back, full band live versions of his biggest tracks from multiple albums. Also include one new track featuring The Mattson 2.
  • Vinyl Double LP (CAK117LP)

Prince Rama
Xtreme Now

Before we go any further: good god, that cover. It turns out to be a good fit, both conceptually (Xtreme Now is all about a hallucination-inspired mission to meld art with extreme sports) and sonically: the music is as colourful and confused as that remarkable image. And that isn’t a bad thing! Xtreme Now is a wild ride for ambitious dancers, presented on neon green vinyl.

Toro Y Moi
What For?

With a background in punk bands, South Carolinian producer/ singer songwriter Chaz Bundick began making bedroom music under the name Toro Y Moi in 2001 and went on to pioneer the sludgy electronic sound that pre-empted chillwave. ‘What For?’ was recorded during an intermission from working on a record for his dance project Les Sins, and is a new direction for this musical adventurer, exploring lose themes of love and nature in a way that is intentionally vague and beautiful.

Skylar Spence
Prom King

Ryan DeRobertis's development of a live act involving a full band has influenced the evolution of his music to the extent that his latest album as Skylar Spence is a fuller bodied effort than ever before, drawing on disco, R&B and UKG along with his trademark plaintive vocals. Fans of Chromeo, Hall & Oates, Daft Punk and the 90s wave of Chic-like filtered funk will appreciate these grooves.
