Ratboys – The Window


>> JAIMIE BRANCH – Fly Or Die Fly Or Die Fly Or Die ((world war)) LP/CD (International Anthem) *Black or Ltd. Green Vinyl

The final transmission from the late, great trumpeter JAIMIE BRANCH was nearly completed a month before she passed away during the summer of 2022. On this Fly or Die edition, BRANCH sought to explore extended song templates with more vocals and a heavier, denser sound palate. And yet with Fly or Die x3, the result isn’t so much cacophony as it is deep esoteric harmony, meshing folk balladry, Latin jazz, psychedelic electronics and classical minimalism into a beautiful, organic whole. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> HUERCO S. – Colonial Patterns 2LP (Software) *10th Anniversary – Bone Vinyl

Tenth anniversary of this seminal ambient house album from producer HUERCO S., using dark, hypnotic rhythms and obscure musicality to create a sense of dissonant unrest, inspired in many ways by the overcast murk of BURIAL and the fourth world kosmiche of JON HASSELL. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> BUCK MEEK – Haunted Mountain LP/CD (4AD) *Black or Indie Exclusive Clear Green Vinyl

Third solo album from BIG THIEF guitarist BUCK MEEK plumbs earnest emotions with a playful, daydreamlike whimsy, touching on the country-leaning side of his band that also often sounds like a happier version of JASON MOLINA. Good stuff! RECOMMENDED!

>> RATBOYS – The Window CD/CS (Top Shelf) *Vinyl delayed but coming soon! ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

We got an instant classic for you right here from Chicago’s own RATBOYS. Made in collaboration with producer CHRIS WALLA (ex- DEATH CAB), The Window has the same everything-but-the-kitchen-sink-just-kidding-throw-that-in-too mentality of WILCO’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot – polished indie rock, shaggy Americana, and fuzzy power pop with lots of space for experimentation & more than a few badass guitar solos. It’s our city’s answer to the “post-country”(horseshoe gaze?) boom period we’re fortunate to be in the middle of with great records just in the past year from WEDNESDAY, MJ LENDERMAN, and FLORRY. We’re really proud of this one – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
