28th Of September 2012 Update

28th Of September 2012 Update of New and Key Restocked Items + Reviews
at Redscroll Records

This week hit us a bit unexpected with some technical difficulties (PSA: Back up your hard drives often!). Unfortunately for us that means our inventory is a bit off. Luckily we were planning a full inventory project, but now it's coming quicker than expected. This should effect all of y'all (our customers/friends) very little except for in this update there is no delineation between electronic, general pop & rock, hip-hop, etc. genres. So, maybe you'll see something extra and that's fun, right? I think so. It also means that our update this week is a little padded with a bunch of restocks that otherwise might have been skipped in our ordinary update, but let's consider them "Key" this week. Happy browsing!

Flying Lotus Until The Quiet Comes
Steven Ellison, better known as his stage name Flying Lotus, or FlyLo to his close fans, is a multi-genre music producer from Los Angeles California.  He has had 3 successful full length albums released under his title Flying Lotus.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with FlyLo, his albums are a type of experimental, jazz, electronic, dance, hip-hop.  He has the beats and bass of a hip hop artist but the tranquility, light chimes, and repetition of a jazz artist, along with electronic beats that have a haunting vibe to them.  His tracks have the feel of being in a dream land, with a hypnotic and trippy atmosphere.  This new album from FlyLo is not far off from his past albums, but it is finer tuned and more precise.   On this album there are also two special guests, including, Erykah Badu and Thom Yorke.  Every time I listen to a new FlyLo album I expect to be completely submerged and swept away by his beats, and he has successfully done this again.  When I first began listening to FlyLo I felt like if I closed my eyes I would wake up in the jungle in the dark running around with flashing colored lights everywhere and completely disoriented.  Sure enough while listening to this album I still feel the same way.  FlyLo's haunting beats can also give off a "Twilight Zone" type of feel by being totally spacey and eccentric.  The Jazz aspects of this album are almost futuristic, such as if Jazz was being played by aliens this is what it would sound like (far fetched, I know).  However, if you want some funky dreams, the perfect album to fall asleep to would be Until The Quiet Comes.

Lightning Bolt Oblivion Hunter

Those with a taste for rock served artsy, slamming and outright loud should be familiar with this Providence, Rhode Island duo by now (and if not, now is the time.) Active for almost two decades now, Lightning Bolt has gained notoriety for their amplifier-exploding sound that bluntly unites “noise” and “rock” like few others. Brian Chippendale’s tireless drumming and uniquely echoing-in-another-dimension vocals set the foundation for Brian Gibson’s ultra-distorted bass guitar riffs, which range from being comfortably catchy to unbelievably dizzying. Their latest release (a “lost” recording from August 2008 that’s considered an EP, though it’s long enough to be a full-length) is a perfect summation of what one would expect a Lightning Bolt record to sound like. It strikes a balance between their early repetitious experimentation (such as their 1999 self-titled debut) and more critically appealing thick “rock” sound. They just sound really free throughout while exploring even more new structures. My favorites include the surprisingly foreboding opener “King Candy,” as well as those with instantly memorable fast-rocking riffs that’d fit perfectly on 2009’s Earthly Delights (such as “Oblivion Balloon” and “Salamander.”) Unsurprisingly, they threw in additional variety as well, with the curious Far East-sounding acoustic strumming of “The Soft Spoken Spectre” and 13-and-a-half noise-drenched minutes that make up the hallucinogenic outro “World Wobbly Wide.”

Susumu Yokota Dreamer

(Lo Recordings)
Since the early 90s, this English-speaking native of Japan has been composing and producing numerous albums of lush electronic ambience. His latest record is no different, kicking off with “Human Memory” endlessly pouring layers of synth upon a catchy retro-style breakbeat, along with horns that sound reminiscent of ancient times. The melding of electronic experimentation with Eastern music seems to be the running theme, from the sitar-soaked glimmer of “Flitting Ray,” and what sounds like monks chanting alongside bells in “Double Spot Image.” There’s no shortage of variation, with the driving techno of “Inception” just begging to complement a slick spy car on the move. The same style of deep synth is used on tracks that incorporate more experimental, difficult-to-describe backing sounds, such as “Animiam Of The Airy” and “Brainwashing And Senses,” while the particularly unique “Renounce The World” uses much more unusually-timed synth backed by chanting. Outro “Legendary Stream” is the most atmospheric of all, incorporating rich synth, flutes, running water and conversational speaking toward the end.
