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.

      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?”

        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.

            Horsebeach / The Pheremoans

            Alone / Removals

              'Alone' by Horsebeach captures their dreamscapey sound which has seen them get two albums in Piccadilly Records end of year review in recent times. The Pheromoans check in with' Removals' and 'My Two Careers' splitting their side of the split 7" into two beauties but be sure to play at 33rpm to avoid potential health risks when dancing

              STAFF COMMENTS

              Andy says: The Horsebeach track is like a dream set to music: beautiful. On the flip Pheremoans sound alternately like The Pastels and The Blue Aeroplanes on the two tracks showcased here. Excellent stuff.

              ‘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.

              Jack Underwood

              Wilderbeast

              "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’.
