The Fair State is a sonic meditation on the State of Indiana on its 200th birthday.
This new album by the ever-changing FIELD WORKS collective is both a celebratory and cautionary tale about Indiana.

Inspired by Stuart Hyatt’s audio field recordings made during the Indiana State Fair, the album captures the complexity of a place as it wrestles with the 21st Century.
Minimalism meets space pop ambience to provide a soundtrack to the Bicentennial. Spare arrangements for piano, cello, harp, and bass are anchored by the layered textures of Hyatt’s field recordings. Listeners will hear hundreds of interwoven sounds, including machinery, livestock, children playing, the voices of Indiana politicians, protesters, and even a rare recording of Eugene Debs.

>>>THIS EDITION ALSO INCLUDED A LIMITED, NUMBERED, SIGNED PRINT BY NATHANIEL RUSSELL!!

HOOPS  - Routines (Sky Blue LUNA music / Landlocked Edition) LP JENS LEKMAN  - 'Life Will See You Now' (Orange Vinyl Edition) LP MAC DEMARCO - This Old Dog (Indie Exclusive White Vinyl) LP

Bloomington-based HOOPS debut album is set for release 05 May 2017, on Fat Possum Records!

Jens Lekman describes his new record, Life Will See You Now, playfully, but also honestly, as "a midlife-crisis disco album; it's an existentialist record, about seeing the consequences of your choices". It's a typical Lekman album in several ways: sly humour is key to its heartfelt nature; it inverts pop's writing norm by making songs with sad concerns sound happy and songs with a happy subject sound sad; and it plays with notions of identity and the self. But, as the title suggests, it also represents a significant move forward, as if across a threshold. It's the more expansive, upbeat sound of a revitalised Lekman, who is just one of many characters in his new stories about the magic and messiness of different kinds of relationships.

DeMarco wrote some demos for This Old Dog on an acoustic guitar, an unusual yet eye-opening method for him. He also attributes some of the delay to his exploration of new gear he’d purchased, specifically a CR-78 drum machine, which he used while writing and can be heard on his album tracks for the first time ever. "That thing helped a ton, especially for demoing," he says. "It’s on the album a lot, maybe four or five songs. I usually demo on a drum machine and then record real drums, but I liked that machine so much I kept it on the album. The majority of this album is acoustic guitar, synthesizer, some drum machine, and one song is electric guitar. So this is a new endeavor for me"

MARK EITZEL–Hey Mr Ferryman LP+AUTOGRAPHED POSTER The Avalanches - Since I Left You (Blue Vinyl edition) 2-LP set >The xx - I See You LP
Hey Mr Ferryman is Eitzel’s first full studio album recorded entirely in London. It was made at 355 Studios with Mercury Prize winner Bernard Butler (ex-Suede, McAlmont & Butler), who has produced and/or recorded albums with Tricky, Ben Watt, Bert Jansch, Edwyn Collins, and more. Butler produced Hey Mr Ferryman and played all of the electric guitar, bass, and keyboard parts on the album.

Hey Mr Ferryman features the vivid melodies long associated with Eitzel’s former band American Music Club—which remains a cult favorite to this day—as well as Butler’s distinctive guitar that serves to complement Eitzel’s expressive vocals. Of that voice, Pitchfork once wrote: “If Leonard Cohen’s voice is a story about the passage of time and Levon Helm’s is a story about losing what is most precious to you, Eitzel’s is about the circuitous roads we take in search of ourselves.”

“The songs on this record are about celebrating musicians and music, about misogyny, the long shadow of history, getting one’s head out of one’s ass,” quips Eitzel on the themes of Ferryman. “Also oceans, blood, skies, hearts, gay pioneers, carpenters, weeping women, and how death waits for you even in the happiest place on earth: Las Vegas.”

The massive/mighty debut album--on vinyl in U.S. for first time!
Limited to 5000 copies, worldwide! Don't Sleep!

out 27 JAN 2017...

'I See You' is marked by a tonal shift to something close to pure, crisp pop structure, adorned by unusual crescendos that echo a dextrous DJ inching their dancer toward climax without ever quite lifting the house lights. Its lyric sheet moves from the danger and hopelessness of love to its deliciousness and rapture; a move into a more outward looking proposition.

'I See You' is recognizably still The xx but is now powered by the voluble ambition of its three perfect counterweights to one another starting to not just realize but harness their full potential. You might even want to think of the decisive move from Joy Division to New Order here, too.
