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.

TEEN
Good Fruit

Good Fruit is the fourth album by TEEN. The band have trimmed down to a core three-piece of sisters Teeny, Lizzie and Katherine Lieberson for the release, with Boshra AlSaadi contributing to songs before leaving to pursue a solo career. It’s a harmony and hook-laden synthpop album that deals with loss, specifically the death of the sisters’ father, capitalism and womanhood. Limited coloured vinyl and CD on Car Park.

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.

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.

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.

Belong
October Language

John Elliot's (Emeralds) always on point Spectrum Spools label give this classy album a much-needed vinyl reissue. Originally released back in 2006 on Carpark Records and later on Kranky, it's an album that truly deserves to remain in print. This fine work of Michael Jones and Turk Dietrich (Second Woman) has the sort of fuzzy, dense and droning emotive textures that will appeal to fans of Flying Saucer Attack, My Bloody Valentine etc.

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.

Speedy Ortiz
Real Hair

Speedy Ortiz have revived the Massachusetts music scene that was so productive in the '80s and '90s with legendary bands like Mission of Burma, Pixies, Throwing Muses and Sebadoh. They gained worthy praise for their 2013 sophomore album, Major Arcana. Their third EP, Real Hair was recorded and mixed by Boston legend Paul Q. Kolderie. Front woman Sadie Dupuis’ great guitar work is coupled with her ability to write a melody. Real Hair is available on vinyl 12".

Toro Y Moi
Underneath The Pine


  • Vinyl LP (CAK059)

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.

  • Vinyl LP (CAK052)

Palm
Shadow Expert

Blending art-rock with an indie forward motion, Philidelphian four piece Palm mix a discordant version of Battles polyrhythmic picks and sweeps nearer to Nitikowski and the odd tweeness of Deerhoof. There is a definite comparison to be made with Nnamdi Ogbonnaya but with added psych. Second full length available via Carpark.

Sad13
Slugger

Sad13 is the solo project of Sadie Dupuis out of Speedy Ortiz, in which she replaces the full band with sturdy drum machines, some fuzzed-up synths, and lots of lovely multi-tracked self-harmonies. Debut LP Slugger has a warm messy pop feel to it, with some real smart lyrics as well as the grungey tunes. Released by Carpark.

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.

MADEIRA
Bad Humors

Kim Pflaum’s latest incarnation MADEIRA is as sweet and soft as the cake that shares it’s name, though I think that’s as far as the comparison can (and should) go. Lovingly warm synth-pop songs. Lights up, end of night, one last track songs that could soundtrack a group of friends in a taxi home. So, maybe more like the cake than I thought.

Young Magic
Still Life

The new record from Young Magic grew out of an exploration of family history. Melati Malay dug into her Indonesian routes, extracting both intimate subject matter for lyrics and some wonderful sounds, including field recordings and gamelan samples. Still Life is a strong electronic pop record with a deep focus on texture as well as melody. On Carpark.

Greys
Outer Heaven

Greys started out as a noise rock band, and, to an extent, they still are. But on Outer Heaven, the harshness sits alongside notably-melodic tunes and some more dream-pop textures. So what they end up with is both sweet and sour, and also charged with an angry / ecstatic energy: a pretty great formula! On Carpark.

TEEN
Love Yes

TEEN are back with more shiny, funky soul-pop. Love Yes is principally about womanhood and expressions of sensuality that exist outside of the narrow corridor mandated by society. Wise songs, backed with infectiously grooving instrumental interplay. On the Carpark label as CD, 2LP, or an extra-limited transparent red vinyl edition.

Benny Boeldt
8 of Cups

Benny Boeldt (who formerly produced under the name Adventure) used his archive of strange old VHS tapes to assemble the tracks on 8 of Cups, combing them for catchy and / or odd samples and then putting those samples through an array of filters and other treatments, rounding it all off with some MIDI compositions. The results are pleasingly wild. LP on Carpark.

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.

GEMS
Kill The One You Love

Kill The One You Love is the first full-length fruit of the collaboration between Clifford John Usher and Lindsay Pitts, working under the name GEMS. They’ve made a record that sounds like wide-screen electro-pop made by shoegaze fans, with plenty of brooding electronic swells sweeping in and out. On Carpark.

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.

Introverted Dancefloor
Introverted Dancefloor

Introverted Dancefloor is the name of the latest project from Bevan Smith, who has been keeping himself sonically busy under all sorts of monikers for years. This LP takes Smith’s introverted vocals to the dancefloor (see what I did there?), where his productions take off into body-moving crescendoes. Huge stuff on Carpark.

The record is a full on team assault featuring some of the labels hardest hitters including Young Magic and Skylar Spence, Montag, Ear Pwr, Memory Tapes, and Dog Bite, Speedy Ortiz, Teen and GRMLN.

Chandos
Rats In Your Bed

After self-releasing two EPs on cassette, Chandos felt their fidelity needed a boost so signed with Carpark records, current home of Speedy Ortiz and Greys, to help them achieve this. Rats In Your Bed is still a raw and dirty sounding record, the Boston-based band have kept true to their roots. Rats In Your Bed will appeal to fans of At The Drive In and Japanroids.
