Explosions in the Sky "take care, take care, take care" Album Premiere Party TONIGHT!

Tonight at 10pm, out on the Echo's back patio, we will be premiering the brand new full length LP take care, take care, take care by the legendary post-rock outfit Explosions in the Sky! Be one of the first to hear the album out on Temporary Residence and buy it on wax! Not only is the album an awesome and beautiful barrage of sonic euphoria, it's also the best album art of the year. Check the photos out below!

2xLP Quadruple Gatefold
36x36” Foldout Poster and Postcard

Pitchfork reviewed it today and gave it a 7.2. Here's what they had to say:

Four years ago, Explosions in the Sky ended their last album with a short (for them) song called "So Long, Lonesome". It was pretty and melancholy, not so unlike a lot of their other music, really, but as its title suggests, it had the feel of a goodbye. It seemed so final. But no, the Austin quartet is not done. Take Care, Take Care, Take Care finds the band returning with a renewed focus on its most basic sound: multiple guitars with drums and a bit of bass. The piano that helped lend "So Long, Lonesome" its sense of cold finality is gone, and the band sounds confident getting back to the setup on which they built their reputation.

The band famously doesn't consider itself post-rock, but if we're being honest, today they may be the last true exponent of turn-of-the-century post-rock-- unlike Mogwai, they never wandered away from drifting instrumentals constructed around loud-soft dynamics and the contrast between soft guitar tones and pounding drums. Most of their other contemporaries from the period are gone or found dub or electronics or something else. But Explosions in the Sky are sticking to their guns-- Take Care is less ragged than Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, but it's otherwise a very similar album.

So whether or not you dive into Take Care will largely depend on your appetite for loud/soft instrumental post-rock. If your appetite for it is boundless, you will be very pleased by this album, and probably also its elaborate artwork, which can be folded several ways to make the interior or exterior of a building. At its best, Take Care is ruled by drummer Chris Hrasky. The guitars tend to hang on particular figures or throw up an e-bowed haze, and Hrasky is the one who can cut through that. On "Trembling Hands" his drum kit is the lead instrument as he unleashes Keith Moon-worthy torrents of snare, tom, and cymbal, throwing himself at the guitars as though they were a wall to break through.

One could argue that the music here is predictable and even a bit old-hat. We've lived with this sound for well over a decade now, and we have classics to compare it to, including Explosions in the Sky's own work. And that argument holds some water. But the simple fact is that Explosions in the Sky are very good at this particular thing, and it seems as though no matter how many crescendos and diminuendos they play, there remains a certain amount of cathartic power to their music. The emotion in it is ambiguous, and you can read whatever you want into it-- the soundtrack to your rainy day might be the soundtrack to someone else's overwhelming joy, and that too is important to its appeal.

— Joe Tangari, April 25, 2011

We will also be DJing some fine tunes out on the back patio all night. This is the last night of Amanda Jo Williams' month long rezzie. If you haven't had a chance to check out her Laurel Canyon country rock, tonight's the night!

Here are the deets:
Origami Vinyl and The Echo Present: Amanda Jo Williams Monday Night Residency
The Echo | 1822 W. Sunset Blvd in Echo Park
FREE | 21+ | 8:30pm
- 04/25 :: Amanda Jo Williams / The Overstreets / Dick and Jane Family Orchestra / Matthew O'Neill

"Listening to Amanda Jo Williams' rough-shod country-folk is like eating a squirrel stew supper before falling into bed, where you then lie awake and hear the haunted scrabbles of raccoons, coyotes, and bears and wonder if you staggered out there, would you be eaten alive or inducted into some ritualistic animal society. Her primal music is an open maw to the mysteries and fears of the world. With a twang-heavy voice that sometimes breaks into manic gibberish or other cartoonish effects, she sounds like an unruly, sometimes lonely little girl left to her own devices" - LA Times
- I really don't know what the hell these guys at LA Times are smokin but that is a pretty out there description that somehow works. enticing isn't it?

Lower Heaven at 8pm TONIGHT in our loft!

Come out tonight at 8pm to catch the lovely Lower Heaven. You will not be bummed if you do!

Hailing from the sun-drenched hills of eastside Los Angeles, Lower Heaven create dark, shimmering waves of sinister neo-shoegaze on this vinyl version of their buzzed-about debut. Recorded with the engineers behind West Coast institutions BRMC and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, these songs are equally indebted to the early Creation Records sounds of Ride, MBV, et al. Covers printed on heavy-duty plastic-coated stock with metallic spraypainted interiors.

Therapies Son rockin' our loft TONIGHT at 7pm!!!

We are STOKED to present Therapies Son in our loft tonight @ 7pm! They will be celebrating their 10" EP release, Over The Sea out on Sargent House. Check out what Paul O'Donnell had to say about them on The Whiteboard Project

Okay, we can all probably agree that we may have overdosed on lo-fi in the last year or so.

Bands jumped on the lo-fi wagon and rode it with gay abandon, to the extent that music reviewers eventually started to get a a bit perturbed by the lo-fi nation. However, used correctly, it is an effective method of music and todays Band Of The Day has it down. Alex Jacob records as Therapies Son and he produces music that has touched the heart of the meanest of editors and reviewers. Much like Porcelain Raft, Perfume Genius and Idiot Glee, Jacob is a bedroom troubador, pouring his emotions into music which is experimental in how evocative it is and troubling in how raw it sounds. It is believed that Jacob began his musical journey after having his heart broken by a girl. The resulting angst-filled songs naturally caught the attention of the far-from-joyful Transparent records, the home of the wondeful Perfume Genius. Since joing this stable, Jacob has released music that has staggered people. An uneasy fragility and a feeling of poignancy permeates through his music.
He does differ to the aforementioned soul-baring , DIY bunch though. Dare I say, there is a tad more musical experimentation. Dare I go further, he sometimes sounds like a mix of The Beach Boys and an Andrew Lloyd Weber Musical. He varies his arrangements to create musical landscapes that differ from the last. One constant is his delivery. It is often fraught and damaged, even in songs that sound carnivalesque like Yellow Mama. I hope that girl is happy with herself….

There is big talent here! Exploring it should be a journey.

Don't is One Day Without Shoes day

One Day Without Shoes is an annual event hosted by TOMS Shoes in which people host or participate in events without shoes. Some go without shoes for an hour, some for the whole day, but all become a part of a greater movement toward change. By doing so, we’ll help raise awareness of the impact a simple pair of shoes can bring to a child’s life.

Today Origami Vinyl is going without shoes so that kids don't have to.

Haroula Rose at 6pm TONIGHT

Join us at 6pm tonight for Haroula Rose in the Origami Loft.

"Chicago-bred, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Haroula Rose's self-released These Open Roads is a deceptively easy-on-the-ears debut that launches Rose as a triple threat: a deft and resourceful melodicist, a subtly superb acoustic guitar crafter and a distinctly winsome vocal presence.”
--LA Weekly (Live Music Pick)

"The feathery tones of Haroula Rose’s debut album, “These Open Roads,” are pretty enough to cause suspicion...each listen to her 12 songs (and one Mason Jennings cover) reveals a new melodic turn that the ear didn’t pick up on before. Rose picked the right company to realize this highly textured collection that explores a few different moods, though always at a tender remove. The fragmentary “Lavender Moon” is the standout, a spooked love song kissed with atmospherics that would give Tom Waits the shivers."
--LA Times

When does this recipe ever go wrong? Simple, poppy country rounds sung by a pretty-girl voice with some semi-exotic arrangements—tiny, twinkling bells or lazy cabasa—peppered throughout to keep things interesting. The best moments on the record come when Haroula sings the same thing over and over and over, like the last minute of “Duluth,” when she repeats “I’m gonna marry that boy” like a Lucinda Williams mantra. Let the lady ease your little sufferin’.
