Filth / Body To Body, Job To Job

    Another exciting piece of history from one of The Big Apple's meanest, creepiest, most uncompromising bands ever. As with the "Various Failures" triumph, "Filth / Body to Body, Job to Job" collects material from one of the band's golden eras, a time when bands like Swans and their contemporaries such as Glenn Branca and Sonic Youth could barely get library cards, let alone featured on the covers of magazines to which they are accustomed today.

    Disc number one reissues Swans' classic 1983 "Crawl", recorded by M.Gira, Norman Westberg, Roli Mosimann, Harry Crosby, and Jonathan Kane and features previously unreleased versions of "Strip/Burn", "Heatsheet", "Blackout", "Clay Man", "Stay Here, and "Weakling", all recorded live at the Kitchen. Disc number two reissues studio out-takes and live recordings from 1982-85, with a previously unreleased nine-minute version of "Raping a Slave," recorded live in Berlin, 1984.

    Lisa Germano

    In The Maybe World

    A gifted lyricist and powerful singer, Germano is also a talented multi-instrumentalist, playing the violin, piano, and guitar with equal aplomb. This new album features some of her best work to date. For fans of PJ Harvey, Marianne Faithful, Cat Power and Bjork, she's had previous albums on 4AD. Other projects over the years included OP8, a collaboration with Giant Sand and Calexico.

    Mi and L'au recently put the finishing touches to their beautiful new album in Brooklyn, NY. The music on their self-titled debut is austere yet simultaneously warm, expressing the passion they possess both as human beings and as songwriters. Think of a glacier with a red ember glowing in its centre. Mi was working as a model in paris when he met L'au, then involved in the french music industry. The two intensely focused individuals immediately fell in love, and after apartment-hopping around the city for a time, gave up everything and moved to the woods of Mi's native Finland to spend time discovering each other and their music. They now live in a small cabin in complete isolation with the barest of essentials, spending virtually all their time making music together in solitude. They are pure and gentle souls (indeed, Devendra Banhart's song "Gentle Soul" was written for L'au with whom he'd collaborated in Paris). Their music is bare and delicate, with simple instrumentation and sparse orchestrations.
