ED SCHRADER'S MUSIC BEAT: NEW
VIDEO AND LIVE DATES

20 August 2014

Here's the beyond-awesome new video for "Televan" from Ed Schrader's Music Beat's most recent album 'Party Jail'.

Big thanks to The Quietus for premiering it and to Justin Barnes for directing the eyeball-popping visuals!

The band are presently on tour in the USA and coming to Europe very soon, with two stops in London. Here are the full dates.

DEERHOOF'S 'LA ISLA BONITA'

20 August 2014

Almost 11 years ago, we put on our first show by a band named Deerhoof. Now we're releasing their new album! It's also their 20th anniversary!

'La Isla Bonita' will come out on 3 November, with 10 new songs that alternate between minimalism and bombast, melody and dissonance, and dynamism and tranquility.

The first song to drop is "Exit Only", which you can hear in our 'Latest Releases Mixtape' below.

You can also find out more over at the blog and pre-order the CD or LP now for shipping later in the year.

VEXX'S 'VEXX' OUT SOON

10 August 2014

We'll be releasing VEXX's re-mastered debut record 'Vexx' on 29 September, as a joint venture with our friends at M'Lady's Records.

Living in and playing out of Olympia, Washington, VEXX have been devastating the Pacific Northwest music hubs for the last year now, so this mini album is one helluva death-defying listen.

You can stream it over at SoundCloud or pre-order the CD or LP now.

A Cosmic and Earthly History of Recorded Music according to Mississippi Records, featuring...

MARISA ANDERSON, LORI GOLDSTON, DRAGGING AN OX THROUGH WATER & ERIC ISAACSON

A Cosmic and Earthly History of Recorded Music according to Mississippi Records is Eric Isaacson's new concoction - a combination of film, slide show, lecture and soundscape. It instinctively and idiosyncratically illustrates an entire history of recorded music - from the birth of the first star in the universe all the way to the dark ages of the 1980s. The ultimate intention of this travelling exhibition is to give the audience a sense of wonder; that anything is possible and art is worth doing. Tonally, the presentation navigates into the outer reaches, bypassing academic stuffiness in favour of entertainment value and immediacy. This whirlwind 90 minute sound and visual representation will attempt to sum up as many important points in the evolution of recorded music that can be done in such a short amount of time, using materials from Mississippi Records' vast and seldom seen archive of film, music and art.

MARISA ANDERSON is a composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from Portland, Oregon who works both solo and in beautiful tandem. Inspired by Delta blues, West African guitar, country and western radio from the 60′s and 70′s, gospel, noise, rhythms, cycles, mortality, and praise. Featuring an impressive 12 improvisations for guitar and lap steel Marisa has released two albums on Mississippi. In the past two years, Anderson's music has landed her slots with artists including Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Devil Makes 3 and Sharon Van Etten.

LORI GOLDSTON is a cellist, based in Seattle, with an emotional and magic touch. Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher. Her voice as a cellist, amplified or acoustic is full, textured, committed and original. She wanders recklessly across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography, performing in clubs, cafes, galleries, arenas, concert halls, sheds, ceremonies, barbecues, and sanctuaries. Collaborations famously include being thrown in the dark end with Nirvana and enjoying the songs of David Byrne and Cat Power. Lori also co-founded Black Cat Orchestra and has been key to Earth live shows. She has received commissions to do live scores for several silent films.

DRAGGING AN OX THROUGH WATER is a solo project from Brian Mumform, performing songs rooted in folk and country traditions, though ruptured, complicated, and complimented with broken textures of feedback, drones, tape hiss, and homemade oscillators. Chance elements and candlelight sensitive instruments destabilize customary electro-amplified-tightness & introduce improvisation to the recitation of these songs. Brian also plays in Sun Foot, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Deep Fried Boogie Band, & Jewelry Rash. He runs a small cassette & CDR label called Musical Impressions. Brian has collaborated with TJO, Chris Johanson, John Wiese, Makino Takashi, John Butcher, Gino Robair, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Vic Chesnutt, Pete Swanson, and many others.

E.E.K. featuring ISLAM CHIPSY come direct from Cairo, launching their Shaabi keyboard sounds with deadly accuracy at your pineal gland via the irresistible propulsion of two raging drum kits. Chipsy's new wave Chaabi and Nile Delta synth has erupted out of the recent change in the social structures of Egypt, that disrupted existing power structures (to a certain degree) and created a whole new way of distributing art, politics and philosophy. E.E.K.'s debut album came out on the brilliant Nashazphone label in January this year, furnished with sleevenotes by Alan Bishop (of Sun city Girls) and mastering by his Sublime Frequencies ally Mark Gergis.

Chipsy's shameless yet dazzling showboating rides atop the gigantic dual rhythms, creating a riotous North African dance music that could send any audience into an absolute frenzy. The keyboards sound like sirens and there's a pure, violent virtuosity present. Traditional piano players use all their fingers to play a chord. House music revolutionised this, by allowing the producer to use only one finger. Chipsy introduced a new approach: he fires tone clusters with his fists, palms and edges of his hands all over the keyboard, and slamming down the keys, but still in a controlled manner. It's psychedelic and pumping. It 's tight and distorted. Sometimes there's cheers and yells, but nothing disrupts the very smart compositional glee lurking beneath.

CONTAINER is the stripped-down, beat-oriented electronic project of Providence, RI's Ren Schofield, who somehow sculpts viscious punk sonics into raw jackhammer rhythms that groove in the most relentless, hypnotic, unstoppable and psychedelic ways currently working the grid. This lo-fi mesh of maxed-out drum patterns, spiralling loops and mesmerising arrangements makes for live music of serious weight and function, capable of both rushing the high-end dancefloors of Unsound, Donau and Berghain, and banging the below-stairs basements of Europe into submission. After a string of various cassette releases, the debut full length "LP" was released by Editions Mego sub-label Spectrum Spools in 2011, and has since been followed up by a second Spools LP and the Treatment 12" on the Morphine label...a steaming new 12" pulled in earlier this year on Liberation Technologies, as well as the thrillingly violent mauling of Four Tet's Kool FM as linked to below.
