QUASI TO REISSUE FIRST THREE STUDIO ALBUMS

Indie rock had seen power duos before: Guv’ner, Royal Trux, Buckingham-Nicks, the Carpenters – but they’d never sounded like Quasi. Drumming like a controlled detonation; mutant blues coming out of an electric harpsichord or guitar by turns. Backwards through the backwoods of AM pop and Pebbles psych to create a new form: bar-room baroque. Honey-golden multitracked vocals and some of the bleakest, black-eyed, black-hearted lyrics put to paper since Lou Reed woke up in a bad mood. And all played with the kind of ramshackle ease that only comes from weeks of practice, months in the van, and serious chops.

Janet Weiss and Sam Coomes first collaborated in 1990 as Motorgoat, but by 1993 they had become Quasi. These initial excursions would later be re-released as Early Recordings, but 1997’s R&B Transmogrification is where they define their double act. On drums and harmonies, Weiss is all low-key Bonham-ie, power with poise. On top Coomes’ Roxichord makes you wonder how the electronic harpsichord never took off, its low-end crunch with top notes sounding like Ray Manzarek with a Superfuzz. 

From Weiss’s opening salvo, and the first action-painting splatter of Coomes’ keyboard on ‘Our Happiness is Guaranteed’, Featuring “Birds” is Quasi at their peak, melding jams-kicking rock’n’roll, punk action, and chord shifts that feel like the change of a season. The success of Weiss’s other group, Sleater-Kinney, in the meantime was clearly only firing up, rather than undercutting Quasi.

Closing in on the millennium, both feet on the pedals, Field Studies arrives in 1999. Organ edges out the Roxichord, making for a sound less jagged and more floating – like the protagonist of ‘The Star You Left Behind’, drifting out into an infinite void.  Does Field Studies have an Elliott Smith turn to the harmonies? They do share that heady hit of sweet-sour power-pop – or maybe both Quasi and Smith have a Heatmiser influence, given that’s the Portland band that Coomes and Smith had played in together.

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


The Range – Remixes EP will be out Friday, November 17th via Domino Records. The 4-track EP features a collection of new and unheard remixes of tracks from The Range’s With You / New Lots release, and his Domino debut Potential. Shared today is the Yaeji remix of “With You”, the collaboration between The Range and producer Jim E. Stack. Watch above.

The bundle features a new mix by Yaeji, the on-the-rise Korean-American producer and singer, who has released a string of underground house music singles this past year and has a new EP out now. The bundle also features a sleek and stylised remix by the French producer D.K. aka 45 ACP (Antinote / L.I.E.S.) and a driving and deep techno remix of Potential track “Florida" by Copenhagen's Kenton Slash Demon (Future Classic). James also contributes his own rework of “New Lots” that twists and pulls the vocal sample into interesting new sonic territory.
