Jorge Elbrecht

Presentable Corpse 002

    thanks to his prolific output as a solo recording artist, producer, mixer, and visual artist. Born in Costa Rica and raised in the U.S., Elbrecht’s production and collaboration credits with the likes of Sky Ferreira, Japanese Breakfast, Gang Gang Dance, No Joy, Geneva Jacuzzi, and countless others have given him a well-deserved reputation as one of the most in-demand and respected names in independent music today.

    Presentable Corpse 002 is the inaugural full-length collection of his ongoing Presentable Corpse recordings. Elbrecht himself describes Presentable Corpse as “sunshine pop” that contains lyrics written from the perspective of a fictional Vietnam-era soldier at war, conveying a story of regret, homesickness, combat fatigue, and political anger.

    Information about Elbrecht largely comes from The Executor(s) of the Estate of Jorge Elbrecht, who claims full control over the artist’s creative output, both past and present. According to the estate, Elbrecht’s “disaffection with the milieu of the day developed into a

    pathology by his late twenties, resulting in dangerously high levels of stress and anxiety as the thematic content of his work grew darker.”

    Richard Youngs & Daniel O'Sullivan

    Twelve Of Hearts

      Twelve of Hearts is the debut album by experimental songwriters, Daniel O’Sullivan and Richard Youngs.

      Each song has four chords. No more. No less. They cycle without variation. They never change key. As Youngs sings on Oblivion Riviera, this is “the glittering formula”.

      The music is augmented by an array of sources including piano, tape machines, guitars, reeds, strings, metal sheet and computer. Constructed over several months - O’Sullivan in London, Youngs in Glasgow - only material strictly adhering to the formula has made it on to this release. The result is a cycle of 12 songs based on one chord progression.

      After releasing O’Sullivan’s two solo albums ‘Veld’ and ‘Folly’ and Youngs’ 2018 album ‘Belief’, this is the duo's first for Tim Burgess' O Genesis label.

      Tim Koh

      In Your Dreams

        In Your Dreams is Tim’s most straightforward and accessible release to date, and an exciting addition to his body of solo work, which hitherto can broadly be described as experimental noise. The poignant song collection tackles core themes of life’s calamities, broken love, and transitory relationships, yet counterbalances its essential melancholy with a whimsical, upbeat, and playful spirit throughout. While not strictly autobiographical, the songs draw from Tim’s recent personal experiences during his two-year isolation from friends and family, and create a compelling narrative of alienation, loss, and love.

        Tim wrote In Your Dreams in Amsterdam, L.A., and London in-between his time touring with Ariel Pink, and subsequently recorded the songs at home in Amsterdam while recovering from a near-fatal 2018 accident. The recurring hospitalizations that Tim has endured in recent years subtly find their way into the album through phone recordings from Tim’s actual hospital stints, underscoring the album’s themes on this highly personal work. In Your Dreams deftly juxtaposes lush, densely layered sounds with stark simplicity through a series of quick turnarounds, creating the captivating feeling of tension and release that characterizes this remarkable song collection.

        Guest musicians on In Your Dreams include Chris Cohen on guitar, and drum help from Jay Watson (Tame Impala, Gum) and Josh da Costa (CMON). Adding to the family feel of the album, longtime Ariel Pink and Tim Koh collaborator Jorge Elbrecht performed mixing duties along with mastering by Heba Kadry.

        Oh No I Love You - Silver Vinyl Edition

          ‘Oh No I Love You’ originally released in 2012 gets a Limited edition repress of 500 copies on SILVER LP, in support of Love Record Stores event– Supporting Indie retail. This additional limited colour run is due to large demand for the initial Clear Green repress which has sold out.

          “The root of this album goes right back to a Kurt Wagner show in Manchester. It was the quietest yet the most powerful live performance I had ever seen and afterwards I carried Kurt's guitar to the car for him. I took the chance to ask him if he would ever consider writing a song with me. "Sure Tim, you write the music and I'll write the words". That one song turned into an album and almost ten year's after we first talked about it, the album is ready and it's called Oh No I Love You
          Kurt gave me the number of producer Mark Nevers in Nashville. He said Mark's studio, The Beech House was the perfect place to record. We got together members of Lambchop, Clem Snide, My Morning Jacket. We used strings, brass and a gospel choir. Chris Scruggs, grandson of the legendary Earl Scruggs came and played on a couple of songs and lo fi legend R Stevie Moore stopped by and we recorded a track in one take. Further contributions came from Factory Floor’s Gabe Gurnsey and Nik Colk Void and string arrangements from head High Llama Sean O'Hagan”. - Tim Burgess

          R. Stevie Moore & Gary Wilson

          Fake News Trending

            R. Stevie Moore and Gary Wilson have recorded Fake News Trending -- their first-ever collaborative album together. The historic and long-awaited collaboration is big and welcome news around the world for fans of both of these DIY/underground music legends. Although their separate and compelling stories have included sporadic intersections (both made repeated appearances in vintage Trouser Press editions, and they have also shared the bill at live shows in New York and Los Angeles), Fake News Trending is the kindred duo’s only recorded work together. While both Wilson and Moore are already touted by an illustrious roster of artists that includes Ariel Pink, Tyler the Creator, Beck, Questlove, Henry Rollins, Earl Sweatshirt, and Jello Biafra, Fake News Trendingis a crucial contribution to both artists’ bodies of work. The album not only cements their legendary status within underground circles, but will also surely reach new and appreciate fans around the globe in the months and years to come.

            Fake News Trending boasts a formidable cast of supporting guest artists, including:
            • Jason Falkner (Beck, Air, Daniel Johnston, Paul McCartney, Jellyfish)
            • Jad Fair (Half Japanese)
            • Ryan Sinnott (The Distillers)
            • and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession, Three Mile Pilot) among others

            Although both R. Stevie Moore an Gary Wilson are each the subject of their own documentary (Cool Daddio, and You Think You Really Know Me, respectively), clearly the narrative of these two underground heroes is still evolving, and Fake News Trending will doubtless be regarded as a highlight in both of their winding, weird, and wonderful careers.

            Keel Her

            With Kindness

              Keel Her's musical output can rightfully be called prolific. Originally from Winchester, Rose Keeler Schaefler has been writing and recording her own songs from the age of 14 on instruments found in charity shops and at car boot sales, culminating in a cassette release back in 2011 on Maximum Violence Records. Since then Keel Her has made an album with lo-fi legend R Stevie Moore and has released a single on O Genesis Recordings, alongside multiple releases on Critical Heights. Her influences include Talking Heads, Linda Smith and The Beatles but there's so much originality it's hard to pinpoint and, well, it just sounds like Keel Her.

              With Kindness is a collection of Keel Her’s experiences over the past few challenging years. Her introverted, thoughtful nature is obvious within the lyrics of tracks such as ‘self-sabotage’ and her deep running empathy effects all aspects of her life, be it others’ feelings, nature or the planet. On working with Keel Her, Tim Burgess says: “In 2012 I was handed a recording by R Stevie Moore, it was a track by his favourite artist Keel Her, an artist he had been recording with in Nashville. The song was called ‘With Me Tonight’ and I asked straight away if we could release it. The answer was yes and a seven-inch single of that song with double A banger ‘Boner Hit’ – it was an early O Genesis gem. “Rose Keeler Schaefler is the most amazing and prolific artist and the intervening seven years have given us more fantastic music from the world of Keel her. It’s a pleasure to welcome her back to O Genesis with her new album With Kindness.”

              “With Kindness was recorded over a few months of 2018, at home in London onto tape (Studer 16 track),” explains Rose on the creation of the record. “Juan Jacinto on drums, myself on the rest with a few exceptions where James Hoare plays various things, and guest vocals from friends Linda Smith, and Sean Armstrong. The record is a collection of the past few years; frustrations, mental health issues, over-controlling relationships, being judged by the judgemental, being stuck in a routine you don’t want to be in. Although I am not feeling like I did then or in the same situation, it feels like it had to be recorded for the feelings to dissipate. Catharticism?”

              The Silver Field

              Rooms

                Rooms was recorded in Coral Rose’s bedroom and on the album instruments such as the double bass, cello, guitar, mandolin, harmonium and a bagpipe chanter form loops and layers, her father’s old SPX-90 drenching the rich sounds in delays and reverbs. Rooms is the perfect introduction to the sound world of Coral Rose and friends: the EVI (electronic valve instrument, a breath controlled analogue synth) is introduced on the opening track, ‘Afire’, via Cathy Lucas (Vanishing Twin), and Kiran Bhatt (Red River Dialect) drums on ‘Rain’. ‘Rain’, described by The Quietus as “a delicate and pleasing creature” earlier this year, has already had support from BBC 6Music’s Mary Ann Hobbs.

                Rooms follows recent releases on O Genesis by Daniel O’Sullivan (VELD) and Richard Youngs (Belief), and like O’Sullivan and Youngs, whose albums are very much tied to a place – the home, whether through themes or creation – in this case, The Silver Field’s Rooms is focused on leaving a home behind, both physically and emotionally.

                The home that Coral Rose feels she's leaving behind on Rooms is an old sense of self – encountering herself as an adult and more specifically, a human being. She explains, “This plays out through the metaphor of leaving a house behind – a house of the stuff that builds up around you as you grow up – leaving that behind to make your own decisions about how to live. The last track, ‘Rooms’, is just a little snippet but to me it’s a moment of looking back, seeing it all in a new light with a different perspective from outside, seeing all the feelings and meanings that were once so all-encompassing as something different – as just part of the landscape.”

                This kind of liberation often comes with a sense of loss and this is felt keenly on ‘Rosebud’, a collaged piece, which she explains “is like a moment of everything falling apart or burning down, those screeches to me sound like beams breaking”. Elsewhere on the album, Coral Rose’s imagery depicts a dreamlike world, the album takes inspiration from both Rose’s own dreams, and the underwater landscape of waking dreams.

                The artwork, created by Coral Rose, shows the artist’s connection with the landscape around her and on the cover, a particular home that she inhabited. Painted in North Wales, the front cover painting shows the artist’s view through a window, looking outwards to the rain and light while the inside sleeve artworks are polaroid photographs – multiple exposures of the setting sun through clouds.

                Analogue processes flow throughout the album – several tracks on the album have a tape loop forming the spine of the song, and, explains Coral Rose, “the unpredictability of using a loop of tape rather than dragging something about on screen means sometimes something some little part of it becomes this perfect loop that I never would have heard if I was trying to compose something from the recordings myself.” The reel-to-reel player was found at a car boot sale: “the guy gave it me for £1 – it was the last change I had on me – because I got talking to him about Daphne Oram. It wasn’t in great shape and I kind of nursed it back to life. It had extra character because of that though, I think, a lot of the songs on the album aren’t in concert pitch because it tended to speed things up or slow things down, and often added strange sounds into the mix like the bass wobble in ‘Gost’.”

                November 16th 2017 Tim Burgess tweeted, asking his followers who they would recruit if they were putting together a band: “Who would you have in your supergroup? Excluding Charlatans, mine would be: Vocals: Me & Ladyhawke Guitar: Josh Heyward (The Horrors) Keys: Martin Duffy (Primal Scream) Bass: Debbie Googe (My Bloody Valentine) Drums: Steffan Halperin (The Chavs/ Klaxons)” The difference was that Tim's band was not only a real band but they had also recorded an album. As I Was Now was recorded in Cheshire in December 2008 by a group of friends and is now being released, nearly ten years later.

                “We were complaining about how boring things were between Christmas and New Year, so we got together to record some songs. Some songs were more complete than others, others appear on this record more finished than others.” Tim Burgess 

                STAFF COMMENTS

                says: For an album it's creator forgot to release(!!?) and with such a diverse cast of contributors (My Bloody Valentine, The Horrors, Primal Scream and Ladyhawke) this will really surprise you with its cohesion and beautiful melodic sensibility. This is a really good collection of songs, easily as good as Tim's previous solo work, and the puzzle remains: why such a below the radar/ casual release? Highly recommended.

                Melodie EP

                  London band Average Sex have announced the release of their second EP ‘Melodie’, released on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings. The EP was produced by Tim Burgess and James Spencer and recorded in Cheshire and is the follow-up to the acclaimed debut EP ‘Ice Cream’ that was released in December.

                  With Average Sex it's love at first sight and love at first listen - just depends whether you see them live or hear one of their records first. If you like girls, boys, guitars, melodies and something to dance to then Laetitia, Sam, Louise, Finn and Jamie might well be your new BFFs. Finding love, falling out of love, slashing tyres, eating ice cream - all the major subjects are covered in classic three-minute pop gems that you will still be humming days later. Their songs are gorgeous and their gigs are hectic. And now they have a new EP with four reasons to love them more: ‘Ne M’Oublie Pas’, ‘U Suck’, ‘Melodie’ and ‘Sociopath’ are future classics.

                  Average Sex are like the band you've been matched with on a dating site, so be free and go meet them for a drink

                  Richard Youngs

                  Belief

                    Youngs recorded the album in his hometown, Glasgow, as a cycle of chamber songs, a 21st century update of the solo album – one musician playing all the instruments in a small one-room set up. The album itself began with Youngs collecting his own percussion samples: from handclaps, a battered old cymbal, an extractor fan vent, FM radio interference, cassette hiss and a kick from “a disastrously ‘80s sounding drum machine”. These were then used to programme beats, played back at randomly determined tempos in durations mapped to randomly chosen major label songs.

                    The original plan was to send Belief out to the ‘major’ labels and collect the rejection letters as an art project. But, as soon as the album had been mixed, Daniel O’Sullivan (Grumbling Fur, This Is Not This Heat) played the songs to Tim Burgess and before the mail art project could take off, Belief became Richard’s debut for Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings label.

                    Tear

                    Vinyl01

                      London four piece DIY punk outfit TEAR have today announced the release of their debut mini-album; 'VINYL01', due for release on 17th March via Tim Burgess' label O Genesis Recordings. The band signed to Tim's label in late 2015 for the release of their first EP, and have since been busy making a name for themselves through a string of intimate shows and festival performances. Alongside the news, the band have shared a brand new track; the fierce and focused 'Careless Again' (listen out for the Fleetwood Mac 'The Chain' influenced crescendo).

                      The seven track mini-album contains the raw power that TEAR are renowned for across their live shows; it is a fully charged and sonically tight collection of female-fronted, lo-fi rock music that will be sure to earmark the band as ones to watch in 2017.

                        ‘Over You’, recorded and self produced in London last year, was mixed by Tim Burgess and Jim Spencer and features eleven tracks including the forthcoming single ‘Medicine’

                        Meet Throwing Up. Their music is the sound of a kind of sticker book collage of the best of the past and the present, with one eye on the future. There are clues that they're from London and it's 2013 but they could be from anywhere, anytime in the last 30, or even the next 10 years – ‘Over You’ builds a house on these raw foundations. With their whistle at the bus stop hooks and snappy tunes their songs are stripped back, yet so catchy too… it’s Agit pop like we’ve not seen in a while. A little bit of something to shake the mainstream up but happy to be a poster on your bedroom wall too – We love Camille and Clare and we reckon the world will too. We love Throwing Up and they’re what we really need right now!

                        Throwing Up began early last year when Camille Benett (vocals/guitar) and Clare James Clare (bass/vocals) both formerly of unhinged girl-rage rock quartet Headless teamed up with drummer Andrew Moran. The trio have since built up a great reputation for their explosive live shows which combine the emotional impact of their songs with irreverent delivery and theirs is a sweet spot somewhere between self-awareness and youthful innocence.

                        "A few months ago it was decided that OGen004 would be a vinyl and digital release of some poems by Jack Underwood. We had no real idea how much interest would be generated by a 7" single of poetry but everyone who had heard Jack's poetry seemed to like it and the idea was we would treat it like any other release of a song by a band - we thought that if we didn't make out we thought it was a little odd that nobody else would."

                        Debut single from this Leeds via Manchester via London duo on the fledgling O Genesis Recordings label.

                        Replicas, Helena Gee (vocals/ guitar) and Ashiya Eastwood (vocals/ guitar/ keyboard), formed at the end of last year and have been quietly building a growing fan base around the country with their enchanting slant on moody, yet melodic pop.

                        Produced by Tim Burgess, the new single is a three track EP featuring ‘Hearts Beat’, ‘In The City’ and Disappear’.
