Introducing…Constant Smiles

Over the last half decade, the music collective Constant Smiles has produced a prolific output of acclaimed music, culminating in their new record Kenneth Anger, masterfully brought to life by engineer Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Liars, Dougie Pool). The group is known most recently for their much-praised debut album for Sacred Bones records, Paragons, produced by Ben Greenberg.  

Divus Julius presents: Daniele Luppi

Italian-born film composer Daniele Luppi grew up listening to the groovy lounge sounds of Italian pop music in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Used in advertising, film, television and radio, this musical style became so much a part of Luppi’s life that he could not help but draw on its influence for his first full album, An Italian Story. Here, Luppi not only pays homage to the genre of his youth, but he takes it one very classy step further: he employed those musicians who originally brought the music to life to make his modern version of it shine. Born and raised in Rome, Luppi was classically trained on piano and also learned to play jazz organ, becoming a master of the Hammond B-3.

Daniele Luppi has worked with some artists, ranging from his 2011 Rome project – which included Danger Mouse and Jack White – to his 2017 recordings with Parquet Courts and Karen O.

His new EP finds the studio boffin pivoting once more, with Daniele Luppi combining with Cigarettes After Sex figure Greg Gonzalez. The incoming project is titled ‘Charm Of Pleasure’, and it merges two very distinct artists.

Music by Bergman: Parquet Courts

Parquet Courts inject their brand of deadpan post punk with the raw rock’n’roll of The Stooges, blistering funk, and early American hardcore. Since forming in 2010, the Brooklyn band has released a steady stream of music, including four studio albums and a handful of EPs, collaborations, and an LP under their Parkay Quarts alias. 

Parquet Courts have announced their new album, Sympathy for Life, due out October 22nd via Rough Trade Records. As a preview, the Brooklyn indie rockers unveiled the propulsive lead single, “Walking at a Downtown Pace.” 

Divus Julius presents…BODEGA

Brooklyn art rock outfit BODEGA announce their debut album, Endless Scroll, due out June 1st.  Endless Scroll was recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) on the same Tascam 388 tape machine used for their LP Light Up Gold. It was mixed and mastered by Jonathan Schenke at Dr. Wu’s.

The group brings together elements of Post Punk, Hip Hop, and Pop, this combination exemplified by their lead single “Can’t Knock the Hustle,”
