Jill Barber
Chansons
Jill Barber’s “Chansons,” is an album of her own interpretations of classic French songs
from both France and Québec. Jill meticulously curated the repertoire herself, selecting
material from a long list of over thirty songs, drawn both from her own collection, and
from recommendations from friends within the Francophone community.
“I spent time with the songs. I strolled the streets with Aznavour, I sat in a sidewalk cafe
with Piaf, poured a stiff drink with Gainsbourg, and I became absolutely enamoured and
inspired by French music in the process.”
With her producer and arranger Drew Jurecka, Jill whittled the list down to the twelve
songs that make up the album. Each song is treated lovingly, and with due respect by
Jill and Drew, who endeavored to keep the spirit of the original song in place. “They’re
classics for a reason. I wanted to lend my voice and offer my interpretation, expressing
how the song particularly makes me feel”.
The first single off Chansons is “Sous le ciel de Paris” a song inspired by the 1951 French
film of the same name and made famous by Piaf. “For me, this song captures the spirit
of French street music, the drama, the tenderness, the romanticism, the playfulness. It’s
the kind of song that instantly transports me to the cobblestone streets of Paris… or at
least the Paris of my imagination.”
Jill is poised to continue her burgeoning love affair with her French audience and
Francophiles alike.

Jill Barber
Chansons
Chansons, le nouvel album de Jill Barber est un disque sur lequel elle réinterprète des classiques du
répertoire français et québécois. Attentionnée et minutieuse, l’interprète ontarienne, rapidement
devenue une favorite du public québécois, a d’abord soigneusement sélectionné ses morceaux,
dressant une liste de plus de trente chansons tirées non seulement de sa propre collection, mais
aussi de celles de ses nouveaux amis francophones. Après quelques discussions et séances de studio avec son réalisateur et arrangeur, Drew Jurecka,
elle a fini par réduire la liste de 30 titres aux 12 qui composeraient le disque. «Il y a tant de
morceaux incroyables que j’aurais adoré enregistrer! s’exclame Jill. Toutefois, je sens que cette
sélection représente bien ce que j’aime dans la chanson française, que ce soient les ballades
sensuelles et romantiques, ou les valses taquines et fantaisistes.»
Artiste:Jill Barber
Titre: Chansons
C’est aussi avec amour que la francophile artiste et son réalisateur ont abordé chaque morceau,
faisant tout ce qui était en leur pouvoir pour garder l’esprit de l’original bien en place. «Ces
classiques ne sont pas des classiques pour rien! Je voulais leur prêter ma voix, sans les dénaturer,
afin d’exprimer toutes les émotions qu’ils faisaient naître en moi», explique Jill. Ensuite, Drew
a pu ajouter sa propre vision aux chansons par les magnifiques arrangements et la réalisation
réfléchie.
Mais, pour sa créatrice, Chansons n’aurait pas été complet s’il n’avait pas comporté son lot de titres
québécois. Le premier extrait du disque, c’est d’ailleurs Quand les hommes vivront d’amour. En effet, même
si la composition de Raymond Lévesque a été revisitée plusieurs fois par diverses voix à travers les ans, il
semblait naturel, pour l’interprète, de l’inclure sur son album. Surtout compte tenu de la situation mondiale
actuelle. «Cette chanson véhicule un message de paix, dit-elle. Et je crois qu’on a besoin d’en entendre
davantage par les temps qui courent…»

Si certaines histoires d’amour ne durent, en somme, que quelques instants, celle entre Jill et
son public francophone n’est guère passagère. Elle est faite pour durer. «Chanter en français
m’a permis de redécouvrir ma voix, mon instrument, confie Jill. Cette langue, surtout lorsqu’elle
est chantée, me semble particulièrement magnifique. C’est un immense plaisir pour moi de me
produire en français et j’espère que ce plaisir est palpable à l’écoute de mon disque!» Points pertinents

Six Degrees
La Jardinera
La Jardinera, the solo debut from Silvana Kane, best known as the vocalist with acclaimed, Juno
nominated, Global Pop ensemble Pacifika, is the singer’s most personal effort to date. Comprised
predominantly of cover songs by her favorite Latin American singers and composers—including
Chabuca Granda, Mercedes Sosa and Violeta Parra—Kane has transformed songs of revolt and
love into an exquisite collection of stunning ballads.

Ela
Brazilian-born cellist and vocalist Dom La Nena, is Six Degrees Records’ latest signing. Born Porto
Alegre, Brazil in 1989, Dom started her musical exploration with the piano around age five. Dom’s
debut album, Ela, is a stunningly subtle and beautifully understated journey through, in her words,
‘childhood and nostalgia.’ The thirteen songs feature her delicate voice and multi-tracked cello,
supported by minimalist arrangements by Piers Faccini and Dom that feature interweaving layers
of piano, guitars, harmonium, kora, xylophones, and vocals.

2013 marks Marcos Valle’s 70th birthday and the 50th anniversary of the Brazilian native’s debut long player. For the past few years,
we’ve been obsessed with Valle’s early ‘70s masterwork, originally recorded for the Odeon label. It’s where a new modern Brazilian
pop sound effortlessly mixed bossa nova, baião and samba with foreign influences like jazz, rock, pop, soul and funk, bringing to mind
the sounds of Jean Claude Vannier and David Axelrod.

Light In The Attic
Marcos Valle
Marcos Valle was originally released in 1970 and not only features a seductive cover image of Marcos
reading the local papers with a bottle of liquor on a side table, but a dynamic musical backing from
some of Brazil’s most gifted players. Hip-hop fans may even recognize the opening horn blasts of “Ele
E Ela,” sampled to great effect on Jay Z’s “Thank You.” Any way you spin it, we at Light In the Attic are
extremely proud to present Marcos Valle as part of our four-album Marcos Valle reissue campaign.
Consisting of an ambitious string of early 1970s landmark studio sessions (sympathetic in spirit to
Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye’s game changing work from the same era) and released on CD and
LP, Marcos Valle (including a rare bonus track on the CD version) features extensive liner notes by
San Francisco-based writer Allen Thayer (Wax Poetics) with exclusive interview content and song-bysong breakdown from Marcos himself. Fans new and old will finally have easy breezy access to these once hard-to-find Brazilian classics.

Garra
Garra continues to express a socially aware stance combined with a playful hodge-podge of samba,
bossa nova, baião (a rhythmic beat from the rural northeast of Brazil), black American music, and
psychedelic rock. Marcos and lyricist brother Paulo Sergio recorded the disc with some of Brazil’s top
studio musicians and created the pair’s most overtly political statement. Tackling topic from Presidential corruption, rampant consumerism, and the black power movement, Garra is a welcome addition
to any South American friendly record collection and sits proudly with the best of Brazil. File after Os

Sugarglider
After almost a decade of struggle, strain, and delay, the debut record from Edmontonian Renny Wilson
has now seen the light. His first ever release, Sugarglider, draws blood from disco keystones such as
Bad Girls, and the spirit of Arthur Russell. Common elements of chillwave, krautrock, and a healthy dose
of Haunted Graffiti can also be heard in a bold, tempo-matched digital-delay. Sugarglider starts out by
taking you on a saxed-out, psychedelic, electric-bass powered dance party, riddled with the sounds of
late 1980s FM Synths, 12 bit horns, and regret. The contrast of upbeat music and melancholy lyrical
content provide a tasty combination for any groove-oriented listener. Tap this valiant freshman effort into
your varicose, and you’ll find yourself crying vaseline tears of self-pity on the dance floor.

Jimbo Mathus & The Tri-State
Coalition - White Buffalo
Fat Possum
There’s a rich sense of region and history in Jimbo Mathus’ music. His voice is rough but expressive,
soulful and haunted. At times he’s a Delta Van Morrison, other times he’s got the hard-won wisdom
of the late Warren Zevon. ‘White Buffalo’ is a tribute to Mathus’ love of true American music. “I came
to discover that American music started with the people that came here from somewhere else, with
all these cultures contributing something. W.C. Handy, Jimmy Rogers, Charley Patton, Duke Ellington,
Chuck Berry, Phil Spector, and the Ramones. They all made American music and all it led somewhere
- I was determined to find out where.”

Yearling
Sometimes a great album slips through the cracks. Critics and astute music fans might find it, fellow
musicians might rave about it and tell their friends, but the album has what you might call a slow burn.
Such is the case with The Parson Redheads’ album “Yearling.” Originally released on the Arena Rock
Records label in 2011 and now out of print, Yearling’s four-part harmonies, quietly compelling songs
and wistful, Laurel Canyon-circa -71 sound are a find. Yearling has a timeless quality that continues
and expands the classic pop country-rock lineage stretching from The Byrds and Fleetwood Mac to
the Jayhawks and Wilco to their contemporaries Blitzen Trapper, Fleet Foxes and The Fruit Bats.

Oak Island is his sophomore release, new questions are explored: what happens when the human voice
is layered exponentially? Nightlands takes us on a spirit quest through lush forests down into The Uncanny Valley. Each distorted, silver-voiced melody is wrapped in the sounds of 70s AM gold — plucked
acoustic guitars, trumpets, dulcimers and hand percussion. Hartley is a prolific sideman in many notable
Philadelphia bands and the extraordinary bassist of The War on Drugs.

The “couple”, consisting of Ives Sepúlveda and Manuel Parra recorded Noctuary in Santiago, Chile.
They put together a home studio and recorded the entire album themselves, from start to finish. Noctuary plays out like a slow motion 60’s beach party dream that you never want to wake from. This is
not your typical motorik beat kraut album; rather it sounds more like a breezy take on Love or Beau

Föllakzoid began in Santiago, Chile, from what they describe as the result of “a product of a trance
experience between friends, sort of a soul abduction in which they’ve been living since 2008.” They
believe that there is some sort of gravitational force that makes South America able to dialogue
directly with other places, times and dimensions. The album shows the band growing an enormous
amount as songwriters, focusing on more developed songs and structures. Throughout these five
songs, Föllakzoid has crafted one of the finest kraut-rock record in years. Release Date: Jan. 22, 2013 CD: 16892-0945-4

True Hallucinations a mind-altering pop pill presented in widescreen Technicolor. You can detect influences ranging from vintage British and New Zealand indie pop, to Factory Records atmospherics, and
a little Velvets/Feelies jangle, along with a good dose of classic power-pop and the guitar-heavy sound
of Teenage Fanclub. In spite of this list of influences, Ex Cops’ music is very much their own, sounding
at once both classic and modern, their sugary pop songs enshrouded in a unique psychedelic haze.
Coming in at just over 30 minutes, the album never overstays its welcome, but living up to its name,
True Hallucinations will linger in your head, making for a pop trip that you’ll return to again and again.

Hidden Towers

Olympus Mon
Formed in Vancouver in 2009, Hidden Towers has been a maturing idea for close to a decade between best friends Chris Cantrell, Ben Holland & Jakub Svoboda . In 2009, Hidden Towers won CITR
radio’s Shindig competition; making them the first heavy band to win the competition since Three
Inches Of Blood in 2001. Their band sees it as their mission to create music that takes largely from
bigger than life classic metal, 70’s jazz fusion, space rock and post-hardcore – turning their stripped
down lineup into an evolved spectrum of sound.
Hidden Towers: “a band that deserves your applause, respect and, most of all, your undivided attention” - Scott Lyon, Discorder Magazine.

When told he was considered one of the fundamental greats of German Jazz, Heinz Sauer replied that
he saw himself “neither as old nor as a master”. So although the saxophonist, who will be celebrating
his 80th birthday on 25 December 2012, is rightfully known as “a giant” (FAZ) and “grand master of
saxophone” (DIE ZEIT), after all, he has been at the centre of European jazz history since his beginnings at the side of Albert Mangelsdorff. But in principle he remains to this day an adolescent; the
kind of artist who knows that the path to mastery doesn’t have a final destination.

Gamak
The idea of hybridity has been central to the music of alto saxophonist/composer Rudresh Mahanthappa
throughout his career. Most prominent, of course, has been his highly original fusion of east and west, jazz
mixed with the sounds of his Indian heritage. But that’s too easy and linear a depiction of this openeared
and inventive composer, who has absorbed an enormous variety of music into his thinking and amalgamated it into a singular vision. On his new ACT release, Gamak, Mahanthappa continues that multi-directional
evolution with a bold, striking set of music that melds leading-edge jazz with innovative reinterpretations of
traditional Indian and Middle Eastern approaches, shot through with an electric jolt of prog-rock complexity.

distortion at the foundation of drone and stoner rock...Arbouretum arises out of the psychedelic swamp
blazing with an almost shamanic power.” - New York Press

Metropolis
Empath
Empath, the second album from God Module, focused on an area far more personal to it’s creator than exposed on earlier works, a place where abstract emotion intertwines with the beauty and horror of human life.
Pounding beats and violent rhythm structures intertwine with the infectious synth melodies to create a sound
that defied electronic music trends, by melding them all into one. It is truly a testament to the talent of the act
that this remastered version of Empath sounds as vital and powerful as it did upon its original release.

Vomito Negro
CD UPC: 782388084420 Metropolis
Fall of An Empire
Vomito Negro was formed by Gin Devo in 1982. The name, Latin (portuguese/spanish) for “black
vomit”, the last stage of the disease yellow fever. One might consider Vomito Negro ‘s interest in
the darker side of the human condition as unhealthy, but in fact it is fuelled by a desire to cope with
and to understand life (and consequently death), as we know it.
Vomito Negro handles these topics with grim sarcasm and/or penetrating personal involvement…
they give way to a message of redemption, passion and purification. In times where every band
that puts together tracks using a standard sound module and vocal distortion in their bedroom is
hyped as the new hope in the “Harsh Electro” or “Dark Electro” genre, Fall Of An Empire proves
that Vomito Negro still a trademark name for a club compatible trip to hell that is bound to stir up, unsettle and electrify.

The Departing of a Dream
FAMILY
VINEYARD
Vinyl reissue of master guitarist Loren Connors’ modern classic The Departing of a Dream - the first of a
three volume series based loosely as tribute to Miles Davis’ “He Loved Him Madly.” This album finds Connors exploring slowly churned darkened hues — each collapsing onto themselves like echoes of Miles’
muted trumpet and Connors’ signature ghost melodies. Re-mastered from the master tape, this 180 gram
LP extends the closing two part suite “For NY 9/11/01” with a bonus track. Comes with download code.

Electric b/w Water Babies LP
“Electric” b/w “Water Babies” is the perfect introductory glimpse into the panoramic full-length and companion EP, forthcoming March 5 and late 2013, respectively. Swelling their captivation with smudged
Americana to untried new peaks, as a whole The Men’s Big Indian sessions come down as reaffirmation
that they truly are that rare restless force, which pulses on regardless of era, affiliation or blessing. Come
dance if you want to.

PRODUCTIONS
Hyper-prolific recording artist Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At The Drive In) proudly presents
his latest solo album Octopus Kool Aid. This album finds ORL and company concentrating once more on
electronics as opposed to guitar-based composition, a tendency encountered on 2010’s tychozorente, not
to mention The Mars Volta’s recent game changer, Noctourniquet.
