Woman's Hour: Conversations

ALBUM DESCRIPTION

Woman's Hour are not your average band. The first clue comes in the name of the London-based four-piece, taken from a beloved female-focused news and culture show on BBC Radio 4. The second is in their graphic, striking monochrome visuals, meticulously curated in collaboration with TATE and MOMA certified fine artists Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg. These play with shape and texture, much like their powerful, iridescent music. On their excellent debut album 'Conversations', this has the intricate construction and intimacy of The xx and the iridescent shimmer of summer-defining indie pop. Pay attention now, or regret it later.

The War On Drugs: Lost In The Dream

ALBUM DESCRIPTION

The LP is temporarily out of stock and we expect to start shipping again the 2nd or 3rd week of April. Thank you for your patience.

The War On Drugs, the Philadelphia-based project of Adam Granduciel, is set to release their third full-length album, the beautifully sweeping Lost In The Dream, on March 18, 2014 via Secretly Canadian. Written and recorded over two-plus years in Philadelphia, North Carolina, New York and New Jersey, following almost two years of nonstop touring in support of 2011's Slave Ambient, Lost In The Dream is the outstanding presentation of Granduciel's progression and growth as a songwriter, performer, and producer. It is an immense listen to be absorbed and discovered now and for decades to come.

Tomas Barfod: Pulsing

ALBUM DESCRIPTION

Back in the summer of 2012, Tomas Barfod released his debut album under his own name, the sophisticated mesh of electronics that is Salton Sea. Lauded by the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused and Gorilla vs Bear, its success took Barfod slightly by surprise. Inspired by a move to LA and mainly written and recorded on the road, often in hotel rooms on his laptop, it was an album that was imbued with a sense of spontaneity and experimentation. Its success has paved the way for the forthcoming follow-up 'Pulsing', a single that continues this spirit of adventurousness but takes it to a whole new level.

With a supporting cast ranging from long-term collaborator Nina Kinert on the lovely electro-squelch of 'Pulsing', former Charles & Eddie legend Eddie Chacon on the twitching mesh of synths that is 'Happy', as well as enigmatic instrumentals like 'Tea Cup', 'Pulsing' effortlessly pushes and pulls dance and electronic music into a myriad different shapes.

A new album is planned for release later this Spring. More news to come soon.

Woman's Hour: Her Ghost

ALBUM DESCRIPTION

London-via-Kendal four piece Woman's Hour have joined the Secretly Canadian family and will release a brand new single, "Her Ghost", through their new label in March. "Her Ghost" is available digitally now with the full digital single including b-side out 17th February and a limited edition 7" vinyl released on 24th March.

The band will be supporting the single's release with a string of UK live dates including a special headline date at London's Purcell Room. The dates also see Woman's Hour visit the US for the first time, including performances at this year's South By South West Festival in Austin, Texas and headlining shows in New York and Los Angeles.

"Her Ghost'' is Woman's Hour's first release with their new label following a year which saw them become the 6th most blogged band of the year (Hype Machine), receive praise from the likes of Pitchfork, The Fader and The Line of Best Fit.

Placing the heart-wrenching vocals of Fiona Burgess against an intricate backdrop of expertly-crafted electronic textures, the new song finds its power through restraint with the band's attention to the smallest of details reflected in the richness of the end result. At once achingly subtle and breathtakingly powerful in its melodic display, "Her Ghost" is testament to a band fully in command of their unique identity and sound.

Woman's Hour are Fiona Burgess, William Burgess, Josh Hunnisett and Nicolas Graves.

Gardens & Villa: Dunes

ALBUM DESCRIPTION

Gardens & Villa found themselves in the unlikely locale of Benton Harbor, MI in the middle of winter to record their second full-length, Dunes. With the aid of Sly Stone’s custom Flickinger recording console, acclaimed producer Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, DFA Records, LCD Soundsystem, Hercules & The Love Affair) guided Gardens & Villa until they ultimately emerged with a record beaming with dystopian energy, subconscious lyrics, and uncompromising sincerity. Taking the album name from an inspired trip amidst the frozen sand dunes along Lake Michigan’s icy shore, Dunes shares a clear and evocative vision of where Gardens & Villa’s members have traveled, what they’ve learned and what lies ahead

Damien Jurado: Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son

ALBUM DESCRIPTION

Damien Jurado is every character in every Damien Jurado song. He is the gun, the purple anteater, the paper wings, the avalanche, the air show disaster, Ohio, the ghost of his best friend’s wife. It is a universe unto its own, with it’s own symbolism, creation myth, and liturgy. You might go as far as to call it a religion, and your religion is a character in his religion.
