Tuesday’s Forthcoming Releases [Part III]

 

THE OTHER TWO REISSUES [Release Date 25/01/2010]

LTM presents an expanded CD edition of the debut album by The Other Two, the electronic pop duo comprising Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert of New Order.

The Other Two came into being in 1990, spurred by Morris and Gilbert's work on television soundtrack and a temporary lull in New Order activity in which Electronic and Revenge also released albums.

First album 'The Other Two & You' features ten original synth pop gems produced by the duo with Stephen Hague, with surprise vocals by Gillian, showcased on the singles 'Tasty Fish' and 'Selfish'.

Originally scheduled for release on Factory Records in late 1992, 'The Other Two & You' was delayed by the collapse of the label, and instead emerged on London in 1993. This expanded edition features all tracks from the original Factory/London album as well as six bonus tracks from companion singles, including superb mixes by Moby, Pascal Gabriel and Boys Own.

The album also includes 'Loved It', originally released as a free CD to celebrate the opening of the controversial Factory HQ building on Charles Street, Manchester in September 1990. The remastered CD runs for 76 minutes, and features new artwork and detailed sleevenotes.

ANIMAL COLLECTIVE ‘Campfire Songs’ [Release Date 25/01/2010]

CD:    http://991.com/Buy/ProductInformation.aspx?StockNumber=492374

Paw Tracks is proud to present the reissue of Animal Collective's 2003 album 'Campfire Songs'. Since the CD's original issue on Catsup Plate recently went out of print, it is our intention to simply keep the CD in print for as long as possible.

An idea originally thought up by Dave Portner and Noah Lennox while in college, 'Campfire Songs' is not a record of songs sung around a campfire but a record that hints at songs emerging from the fire itself: "We wanted to give the music the feeling and atmosphere of the outdoors and the warmth of a fire, so people could bring it indoors."

A collection of five songs written over a period of four to five years, 'Campfire Songs' is an escape from the clutter and electronic assault of the group's 2001 release 'Danse Manatee' and the tour that preceded it. However, the tapestry quality of the songs and the lines that blur endings from beginnings and jams from compositions highlight a style that the boys had become comfortable with from touring and would continue to work on in the years that followed on records like 'Here Comes The Indian' and 'Feels'.

While the songs were completed in the apartment that three of the members shared (Geologist does not play on this album) they chose to record the music on a screened-in porch in Maryland using portable mini disc players so as to allow the ambience of trees blowing in the wind, the birds chirping and the insects in the area to become an integral part of the sound flow. What remains intact are the melodies that have always been a part of the AC sound, though here they have been stripped away of any electronic accompaniment and stretched and slowed to a calmer place than anywhere AC had been before and perhaps has gone since.
