New 1k Fall 2012 Releases
New Fall/Winter Releases from 1k available now via download from 1k.
Nucultures - Tai Chi & Ruby Red (1k019)
The followup to the critically acclaimed 2007 album "Butterflies, Zebras, and Moonbeams", "Tai Chi & Ruby Red", unfolds another profound phase of Nuculture's music—sublime and from the soul. 10 new art-pop songs from Ellie Perez, Tim Motzer & Barry Meehan features "Karma Guru" and "The Mystic Pedal."
Ilsar-Motzer - Tales of the Blackwinged Bird (1k020)
"Tales of the Blackwinged Bird" is a mystifying long-form spontaneous invention by Australian master percussionist Alon Ilsar and Philadelphia guitarist Tim Motzer. This extraordinary music challenges and stretches the limits of their instruments and has more in common with modern contemporary music than left field music or jazz. It also features cameos from Bart Miltenberger on trumpet and Barry Meehan on bass. Essential.
Jeremy Carlstedt - When I Wake Up (1k022)
The stellar debut EP, "When I Wake Up", features 5 new songs by drummer-singer Jeremy Carlstedt—protege of Chico Hamilton. It is a decidedly late '60's/early 70's-inspired indie-art-rock album with incredible playing throughout. Carlstedt's dream-like vocals and drumming momentum transports you to another time and place as does producer Tim Motzer's blues-drenched & Townshend-esque guitar playing. A record of thoughts, hopes, and feelings, "When I Wake Up" takes you on a journey you'll want to hear again and again featuring "Home" and "It's With You". Not to be missed.
