Sven Libaek To Ride A White Horse - Modern jazz soundtrack to the 1968 Australian surf film - Re-mastered from the original master tapes. Continuing its focus on the film music of Sven Libaek, Votary Disk are pleased to announce the re-release of the soundtrack to the 1968 Bob Evans surf documentary To Ride A White Horse. Originally released by Festival Records in 1968, To Ride A White Horse it is one of the rarest surf movie soundtracks and a landmark jazz recording that represented a shift away from the rock n roll or psychedelic sounds that characterized many Australian surf films of the period, a delight of cinematic modal jazz, playful waltzes, and impressionistic underwater mood music. An incredible set of modernist music from one of the masters of documentary film jazz. A significant work not just within Libaek's career, but also within the development of Australian film music in general, as here we have the beginnings of one of Australia's most storied film music careers, a composer that would develop his sound, and later create one of the most singular voices within film scoring, exemplified on such unique recordings as Inner Space and Solar Flares.

Foals Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 2 Both LPs include a download code. The Indies LP is on 180g orange coloured vinyl. The second album of 2019 from the awesome FOALS, following from Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 which was released in March. From what we know, this second offering is going to be a lot bolder and heavier in comparison to the infectious and dancey vibe of Part 1, whilst still retaining the cinematic and apocalyptic concepts. We can't wait. “Part two is a heavier listen, the guitars are more emphasised and there’s some big riffs on it,” explained Philippakis in an interview with NME. “It’s a rock record and it definitely carries on the narrative from part one. Part one ended with a lot of fire and destructive imagery, part two is trying to respond to that: how you can continue in the wreckage and through the scorched earth? We’re just excited for people to hear it because it completes the journey of what we’ve made over the last year-and-a-half.” CD | LP
Sam Fender Hypersonic Missiles Indies exclusive LP is on clear vinyl. The hugely anticipated debut full length album from singer-songwriter Sam Fender. There’s a loose thread that has run through all of Sam’s songs to date and that’s in the focus of his lyrics. Observational, questioning and socially engaged, Sam has an innate gift for simplifying matters of the newsworthy and topical. “I don’t have answers only questions” he clarifies on the eyebrow-raising multi-vocal layered new track White Privilege, but there’s a canny simplicity here that seems to be touching and speaking plainly to people in their hundreds of thousands. Those words reflect conversations occurring right across the globe, amongst friends in cafes, pubs, and out on the terraces. Frustrations. Misunderstandings. Despair. CD | LP

Richard Neale EVES The latest offering from talented, local modern classical/electronic producer Richard Neale. This release is again housed in his signature fold out hexagonal packaging, a lovely thing! Following his album of evolving loops ENDS and his two part electronic/post rock/ambient Deep Blue EPs, EVES is a return to the folk sounds of his early material. The album is built around a series of improvised piano pieces, with vocals and instruments layered over, finding structure where there was none. The results are a mix of hushed folk, ambient, choral and electronic sustaining a dreamlike mood throughout. Influences can be found in artists like Grouper and Virginia Astley, with shades of Nils Frahm, Iron & Wine and Mogwai. Rain Bear Records CD
