Mikael Simpson – Os 2 + Lidt Ro 2002 (Vinyl)

Mikael Simpson “Os 2 + Lidt Ro 2002”
6 maj 2022 er det 20 år siden at Mikael Simpson debuterede med den geniale ”Os2 + lidt ro 2002” – en plade der i den grad var med til at starte Mikael Simspons imponerende karriere og som også var det album der var med til at definere Mikael Simpsons musik som elektronisk soverværelses dub. Os 2 + lidt ro 2002 , de ti skud og stille og uroligt var en triologi som til sammen udgjorde et unikt kapitel i moderne dansk musikhistorie.

”Os2 + lidt ro 2002” er tidligere udkommet som vinyl i et andet artwork (picturedisc) i begrænset oplag.

Immolation – Acts Of God

Just as you can smell a storm brewing on the horizon, IMMOLATION’s cataclysmic tremors are approaching to unleash their latest massive creation: ACTS OF GOD.

Set for release in 2022, this 11th studio album is the next chapter in IMMOLATIONS’ death metal epic. 5 long years have passed since the last studio album ATONEMENT, ACTS OF GOD energetically demonstrates IMMOLATION’s ability to consistently create mesmerizing sounds while still being firmly rooted in the old school, New York death metal they are known for.

Fittingly, the closing track “Apostle” was the last song written for the album. “Some of those choruses have a strange, almost dreamlike quality,” Dolan describes. Its ever-growing momentum unloads rounds of guitar solos and relentless vocals that eventually lead to an explosive finale to the album.

The interesting thing about Immolation, for an old school death metal band, is that they converted their fans and/or gained new young fans with their last album.

Melody Gardot & Philippe Powell – Entre Eux Deux

She has done it again: the musical chameleon Melody Gardot has recorded an album that is not comparable with any of her predecessors and once again shows her immense talent as a singer and songwriter before your eyes, or ears. Only in duet with an equally talented musician she develops a rare musical pull and poetic magic. The album is an oasis of calm and musical concentration, which is able to grab the listener in a delicate way. As if whispering directly into your ear, Gardot sings great new songs here that seem like half-forgotten evergreens.

Porridge Radio – Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder To The Sky (Sort)

When Porridge Radio’s Dana Margolin, one of the most vital new voices in rock, began thinking about the themes of her new album, three haunting words emerged: Joy, Fear and Infinity. The artwork for the band’s third album, “Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder To The Sky,” is a surreal image that evokes the ducking and diving, the slippery slopes and existential fears of recent life. “For me, the feelings of joy, fear and infinity coexist,” Dana says. “You’re never just happy or unhappy.”

Mars Volta, The – Noctourniquet (Blå/Lilla)

Noctourniquet And then everything went black, at least for a while, at least for The Mars Volta. In the months and years following their fifth full-length, Octahedron, Omar kept on at his usual fearsome creative pace. In fact, he ramped up his output considerably, starting up his own Rodriguez Lopez Productions label and releasing a slew of solo albums. It was a practice he’d begun shortly after De-Loused’s release, with his solo debut A Manual Dexterity: Soundtrack Volume One, but as the decade reached its close, Omar grew to rely upon his solo recordings as an outlet for his prolific creativity, these albums often exploring musical pastures far beyond even The Mars Volta’s wide-ranging parameters. Before choosing to release music under his own name, Omar would always play it to Cedric first, to see if the frontman thought it had potential to become Mars Volta music. * Shortly after Octahedron’s completion, Cedric flagged one batch of tracks Omar had cut with Deantoni Parks, a brilliant drummer and composer who’d briefly occupied the Mars Volta drumstool in-between Jon Theodore and Thomas Pridgen’s tenures, and whose volcanic creativity and unique, unpredictable approach to rhythm and composition had quickly made him one of Omar’s favourite artistic foils.

John Mellencamp – Strictly A One-Eyed Jack

Mari Samuelsen – Lys

Mari Samuelsen’s latest Deutsche Grammophon album explores the phenomenon on which so much of life on earth depends. Lys – Norwegian for “Light” – presents music by thirteen female composers, from Hildegard of Bingen to Hildur Guðnadóttir, combining specially commissioned works with new arrangements of existing pieces. The fourteen tracks are woven together to create a meditation in sound on something so fundamental that it is often taken for granted. The Norwegian violinist’s eclectic programme moves through light’s infinitely subtle qualities to reveal a musical world of boundless shades of emotion and expression.

John Coltrane – My Favorite Things

“My Favorite Things” was released in March 1961 and was the first album on which John Coltrane played soprano saxophone in addition to his tenor saxophone. His soprano stars on two of the album’s four songs, including his unforgettable rendition of the title track, written by Rodgers and Hammerstein for the musical The Sound of Music.

Nancy Sinatra – Boots (Blå Vinyl)

“Dumb stuff, as Lee used to call it. Dumb doesn’t mean stupid. It means human and understandable. It was the sound of three guitars, drums, and bass. It was simple, very, very simple. I can still see the room, the studio. With Carol Kaye, Glen Campbell, Donnie Owens… I can still see them all sitting there and chunking away. I guess simple was the best way to explain it, uncomplicated.” – Nancy Sinatra

Light in the Attic is proud to present the next installment of the Nancy Sinatra Archival Series with a deluxe reissue of Nancy’s first album, Boots.
