>Sedcairn Archives -Mammoth Cave LP (Warm Ratio)
Limited to 150 copies, in a deluxe Stoughton tip-on sleeve, David Adamson once again mines a seemingly endless vein of texture, beats, atmosphere and claustrophobia—to conjure something close to a sweet and menacing wordless nocturnal excursion.

LUNA music essentials...

>Smashing Pumpkins – Monuments To An Elegy CD/LP (Martha’s Music)
"…
Monuments simply revels in electric, addictive sound. This is the synthiest Corgan album since TheFutureEmbrace, and the synthiest Pumpkins album since Adore, but where those albums plumbed the goth-y, post-punk darkness of New Order and Depeche Mode, Monuments deals in the brighter side of New Wave: the Cars, Duran Duran, Cyndi Lauper’s She’s So Unusual. It’s not absent guitars, though — it just balances the two instruments. And that may seem like a fairly simple balance to achieve, but Corgan’s history to this point has suggested an inability to satisfyingly find it. But here? Here he zoned in on it with near-perfect precision." – Stereogum
Stacks Image 9864
>The Knife – Shaken-Up Versions CD/LP (Mute)
Shaken-Up Versions is a mini album of classic The Knife tracks reworked especially for the band’s recent North American leg of their Shaking The Habitual Tour. All 8 tracks were performed live in Stockholm and Berlin between 2013 and 2014.
Stacks Image 9879
>Ghostface Killah – 36 Seasons CD (Tommy Boy)
Tony Starks returns to Staten Island after nine years, like a man returning home from a war. He wants the company of old friends, to reunite with his girl, to live a quiet life. But New York has other plans for him. To visually flesh out the album s dark and twisted world, the CD's packaging includes 20 pages of striking images from a host of stellar comic artists, curated by Matthew Rosenberg the creator of Ghostface's 2013 six-issue comic mini-series,
12 Reasons To Die.
