Our Puram was written as Danny Seim relocated from Portland, OR to the Portland neighborhood of Louisville, KY. Wanting to make the album conceptually about Oregon, where he'd spent most of his life, he chose to focus on the Rajneeshpuram community that he'd learned about as a child. As an adult, he recognized the tragic nature of their story and found himself relating to its members on a whole new level, and he began to write from the point of view of a Rajneeshee leaving the compound.
It wasn't until the album was finished -- and Seim was 2500 miles away from the Pacific Northwest -- that he realized he'd subconsciously written about his own exodus from his homeland.
You can get the preorder HERE, and in the mean time stream the new single below, which premiered on Stereogum, while we wait until it's release!
Vinyl and spirit pairings from Joyful Noise's own beverage enthusiast Kiely:
We at JNR love a lot of things, but some of our favorites are listening to records and taking in a nice adult beverage, preferably at the same time. We would like to offer you our latest recommendation for the newest album "Command Your Weather" by Big Business.
We have two equally distinguished offerings for you. First, the Distorter Porter from Greenbush Brewing, a delightfully malty and semi-heavy beer that straddles the line between porter and stout. Best complemented by a shot (or more) of Backbone Bourbon, one of the Midwest finest (and strongest) bourbon offerings. This testosterone-inducing combo is bound to get your heart pumping. You'll probably start feeling the urge to break something right around Track 3, and who are we to discourage you from doing so?
Alternatively, this album makes for a pretty good workout soundtrack. If you're the type who prefers more healthy methods of aggression release, We would recommend starting this record by snorting a few lines of Mexican ephedrine and ending it with a 64 oz. protein shake.
"Sonderlust" is an album forged through heartbreak. After his two previous studio albums ("151a" & "Lighght"), Kishi Bashi was at a musical impasse. "As I sat down to write songs last summer, I went to all my usual conduits of creation: violin loops, guitar, piano, and I came up with the musical equivalent of fumes", says K Ishibashi. "I tried to create orchestral pop recordings that I assumed were my forte, and in turn I found myself standing in front of a creative wall of frightening heights."
At this very same moment of musical uncertainty, K's personal life was falling apart… He and his wife of 13 years had brieﬂy separated and were struggling to keep their marriage together. In his own words, "Touring and its accompanying lifestyle took a heavy toll on my soul and my family". As an outlet, K submerged himself in a new musical direction. Sonderlust emerged as a direct result of this personal struggle taking place at an artistic crossroads.
With the help of producer Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear), engineer Pat Dillet (Angelique Kidjo, David Byrne) and drummer Matt Chamberlain (Morrissey, Fiona Apple, of Montreal), Kishi Bashi has created his most personal and artistically adventurous work to date. "This album is straight from my soul. I questioned everything about what it means to love and desire. The difference between loving someone and being in love."
