MANY-YEARS-OVER LONG-AWAITED REISSUE!! The debut album from MALORY, completely remastered and including two bonus tracks (one of them hidden/unlisted!)
Malory craft their beautiful, blissful sonic sound with brilliant sheets of effected guitars, drawing comparisons to the unmistakable gorgeous guitar work of Slowdive. Although the band implement the classic shoegaze-band instrumentation lineup - three guitarists, male & female vocals, drums, and bass - they definitely do not fall into the trap of countless other "ripoff" bands, but rather expand on these gorgeous sounds to create some of the most lush dreampop soundscapes in what seems like eons. Their monumental orchestral-shoegaze opuses and ethereal vocals have drawn comparisons to Slowdive, Spiritualized, Lush, My Bloody Valentine, Curve, Chapterhouse, et al.
Late in the year 2000, Clairecords got a hold of one of the most incredible debut albums we have ever heard by a German band called Malory. The album, entitled Not Here, Not Now, dug deep into our souls and we felt a compelling urge to spread the word of its brilliance. And so we did. We imported the disc from Germany through Clairecords Mailorder Direct and proceeded to sell copies at a rate we couldn't even keep up with. It remains one of our best sellers to date - even outselling some of our own proud product on our own label. In fact, we helped put the album into the sad-but-impressive out-of-print status that it has retained for the past several years. Alas, we were supposed to reissue this glorious modern shoegaze classic several years ago.
But due to a variety of snafus that not even we know or understand the extent of, the album has still been out of print all this time. Until now. Having endured weekly inquisitions from all ends of the earth asking when this would come to light, we can now proudly answer "it already has!" Clairecords' reissue of Not Here, Not Now includes a previously-unreleased bonus track "Worry About Something", plus an extra hidden surprise bonus track as well!

The Third Face is Malory's new offering and it is their first since 2002. From what I hear on this disc, the wait for the new album was more than worth the wait. Malory is shoegaze at its best, with shimmering guitars and breathy vox....a very strong album. If you love shoegaze or techno pop in anyway, this album is for you.

limited single (ehr008; only 200 copies)

single (emma's house recordings 2002)

  1. wake up (mp3)
  2. falling shine


As if you suspected otherwise??? Malory is making some of the most beautiful music on the planet today, and this is just as essential as all their other recordings. Wake Up is a new song recorded exclusively for this release - multi-layered guitars are intertwined into programmed beats with big build ups and a live sound. Falling Shine comes from their incredible Outerbeats album. Pressed on a rather unique blend of brown-tinted clear vinyl with speckles throughout. And good God man, itís limited (and hand-numbered) to just 200 copies!!

outerbeats

outerbeats (solar3d and alison records 2001)

  1. lake of doubts (mp3)
  2. xirius polar station (mp3)
  3. the choice you have
  4. falling shine (mp3)
  5. dèjà vu
  6. painted dreams
  7. i can`t stand
  8. space in your mind (mp3)
  9. argo night shuttle

Malory picks up where they left off on their debut - and takes things about 1000 steps beyond. They retain the brilliant sheets of effected guitars, drawing comparisons to the unmistakable gorgeous guitar work of Slowdive. But they also add a subtle electronic touch to this record with samples and chill beats (in addition to a live drummer) that makes Outerbeats deeper and even more bewitching than one could hope for. The leadoff track ĎLake of Doubtsí creeps in slowly, showcasing subtle electronics, wonderful male/female vocal interplay, and ebbing & flowing guitars. At around the 3-minute mark, when the guitars soar into the stratosphere and your heart skips a beat, you know you are hearing something beyond special. The rest of the album does not disappoint - every single track is 100% solid and amazing. The dual vocals of Jordis and Joerg will leave you weeping. The cascading walls of guitars (there are 3 guitarists in the band, plus a bass guitarist) will have you picking your jaw up off the floor. These tracks will make you forget about all thatís wrong with the world and see only bright, beautiful things. Absolutely stunning. Words definitely do not do it justice. More than an album, itís rather a life-changing event.

Soaring songs of beauty. Heaps of orchestral shoegaze guitars with that unmistakable Slowdive-esque sound. The instrumentation lineup looks vaguely familiar too - 3 guitarists, male & female vocals, drums, and bass. Yet they definitely do not fall into the trap of countless other "ripoff" bands, but rather expand on the gorgeous sounds to create some of the most lush dreampop soundscapes in what seems like eons. These tracks will make you forget about all thatís wrong with the world and see only bright, beautiful things. Absolutely stunning. Words definitely do not do it justice.
