Jarboe and Helen Money join forces on our first release for 2015. We are honoured to be working with such inspirational musicians.
Legend of underground music Jarboe joins forces with visionary cellist Helen Money (aka Alison Chesley) to create what is probably the most beautiful release in the label's history. While still a "heavy" record in many ways, Chesley's cello looming massive and distorted over much of the proceedings, there are moments of transcendent beauty with Jarboe's ethereal vocal and piano work soaring above the drones, reaching for the beyond.
Working together and separately on the compositions, the album comes together as a seamless whole under the mastering of Kris Force, with moments of sparse beauty mirrored by howling squawls of intensity. This is a very human record, organic, the voice of Jarboe and the many textured strings of Chesley's cello combining with an earthy depth but reaching for the stars.
Released as a black vinyl LP and 4 panel digifile to coincide with their European tour. Street date March 2nd 2015. Catalogue number ABX063.
- Jarboe is a famed vocalist, musician and performer, who came to prominence as co-front and co-writer in The Swans. In addition to her X solo albums, she has notably worked with Neurosis as well as many other legends such as Blixa Bargeld.
- Helen Money is the nomme de guerre of cellist Alison Chesley. In addition to working with Mono, Anthrax and Russian Circles, she has toured with Joe Lally and Shellac among others, and released her third album 'Arriving Angels' on respected metal label Profound Lore in 2013.

The incredible debut from Montreal's USA OUT OF VIETNAM titled "Crashing Diseases And Incurable Airplanes" is out now on Aurora Borealis. Available as gatefold 180g vinyl double LP with download coupon, CD digi pack and digital.
PLEASE NOTE: Vinyl is almost sold out (as of 8th Jan 2015)
On their debut, USA Out of Vietnam proudly boast of their love of lush harmony and infectious melody but also like to push past the 3 minute traditional pop format with 10 minute epics - psychedelic, in the truest sense of the word.
Crashing Diseases and Incurable Airplanes slowly reels the listener in as opposed to attacking them with ballast and decibels. USA Out of Vietnam have created an enveloping and vivid piece of work - but flush that incense and peppermint flotsam out of your head because USA Out of Vietnam insist that this trip is for real.

"USA Out Of Vietnam is a four-piece Montreal band that doesn't fit neatly into any one specific genre. They combine elements of psych pop, prog rock, and drone pop so effortlessly that the resulting music is equal parts brilliant and confounding. The five track album is a heavy journey through various experiments with sound, making it a truly original project." - Noisey.com

Further release news for 2015 will be announced in the coming weeks.
