    Steven Kemner – Gradation Movements

    ,
    You can’t predict the weather. Sometimes, life throws something at you. When it does – not if but when - hopes and expectations lie like shattered spokes. Is it fate, destiny, or circumstance? No one knows, but paths can change when there’s a sudden shift in the weather, and something that once seemed so sure and stable starts to become the opposite: uncertain and unfair. Promises peter out as a drop of rain appears. You have to stop and change course. A natural disaster plunges normality into desolation, and the same is true of our longed-for futures which so often disappear into the ether. Disappointment ensures: inclement weather. You can’t prepare for it; the hurricane warning arrived too late. Steven Kemner recently went through such a change: “I needed to move away from everything that I loved to a place I had no desire to go. This change complicated music, life and a sense of belonging”. - Steven Kemner Like the changing of the weather, ironclad clouds can appear from out of nowhere, eclipsing the sun with blackened totality, and the deep, roiling textures within the music of Gradation Movements are full of rain and turmoil, of leaving and moving on. The slow swells and hard-fought movements are indicative of clouded spells which obdurately block out the blue hope of the sky like a cruel shield. Coated in sleek silver, the notes shadow the steps of the people below. Rainy season stalks the soul; it doesn’t seem to matter where the notes walk, because the cloud always follows, indiscriminate with its downpours of rain and its trident spears of lightning. Rainfall is needed in order to grow, and that includes us. The rainy spells can make us stronger, helping us to rise up in troubling times…but too much of it, and we drown. The cirrus patterns and the cycling of the wind may be hard to understand – we may never understand – but they still have a purpose. The purpose may seem obscure, but it’s there. There’s a strong energy at work within them, and troubled times often reveal things that, in hindsight, we later come to appreciate. When sunlight fails, the music’s tones lie hidden in a shroud of slow mist. The clouds don’t always disperse. You can’t predict the future - you just have to roll with it until you finally come to terms with the strange weather.

    Irving Park – 3 5 1

    Pre-order: Release date 01.06.17 Each copy of this beautiful album will be completely unique from the next including dusty Bartholomew clothbound maps, circa 1880-1940. With each listener being in the possession of a map, treasures are waiting to be unearthed. As such, '5 2 1' takes the listener on a deeply personal journey which mirrors the very subjectivity of music; each and every listener will experience it differently. Life echoes into the music, because the journey is what ultimately matters, the invaluable experiences shaping the record for all of its days to come, and navigation is never a straight forward thing! A complete / unique vintage (very rare) Bartholomew's clothbound foldout map, 3 x hand stamped three inch CDs housed in coloured seethrough covers, set of three Gerald Leslie prints pressed on luxury 250g gesso card stock, vintage roll-bell bus tickets individually numbered to represent the number of each CD edition. All of the above rests inside stitched / sealed / numbered vintage brown waxed bags with scent. These little beauties really are completely unique 'one off limited editions'.

    Hotel Neon – Context

    ,
    Pre-Order: Release Date 01.05.17 Two tone / 4 panel hand made letter-pressed Somerset cotton covers, glass mastered CD, set of ten prints by Nieves Mingueza pressed on luxury 250g gesso card, antique (1890-1940) photograph that has been hand distressed to hold a secret message; hold to the light and all will be revealed! A set of hand numbered vintage negative prints; one black & white photo and one film slide. All of the above rests inside stitched / sealed glassine bags with patchouli scent. In the spirit of honoring the power of contextual cues and lenses on the musical translation process between artist and listener, Hotel Neon set about the task of creating an album as open to context as possible. This is a theme we had previously explored with other projects (i.e. “Forms” by The Sound Of Rescue), but never with so much awareness and personal experience driving the endeavor. “Context” is an intentionally minimal experience and although the intensity of the tracks ebbs and flows, it is equally at home in the background and foreground. This is an album ready to be enjoyed and appreciated in any circumstance or setting, and we await the interpretations. - HN

    Various – Hope

    ,
    As suggested by its title, Hope’, embodies a concept of positivity and the alleviation of strife through the creative translation of emotion into sounds sent to soothe (and) images formed to inspire. Artists were asked to create compositions that reflected their interpretation of the term Hope, producing varied yet cohesive results with a profound resonance. 50% of the profits are donated to Toybox, a charity providing aid, shelter and support for homeless children in Latin America, the majority of which are estimated a life expectancy of around four years on the street. Coupling all of this with the CD’s bespoke artwork and carbon neutral manufacture provides a consumable and tangible product that serves to aid a constructive cause through the medium of music.
