>Buffalo Killers
– Fireball Of Sulk CD/LP (Sun Pedal Recordings)
"Cincinnati's favorite bearded, bohemian brethren, Buffalo Killers are back and are producing cool rocking music at a speed that would make Bob Pollard blush. Their newest release from Sun Pedal Recordings is called
Fireball Of Sulk and is a 6-track bookend-like follow-up to their album Heavy Reverie which just came out this past Spring. Heavy Reverie marked a huge turning point for the band in many ways: not only was it their first time working with Sun Pedal, but the band chose this moment to expand their sound by adding slide-style maestro Sven Kahns on both guitar and lap-steel." – WVXU

>Circa Survive
– Descensus CD/LP (Sumerian)
Fifth album from the prog rock band.

>Nels Cline & Julian Lage
– Room CD (Mack Avenue)
Room reminds me a little bit of the old Chet Atkins and Les Paul duets; it has some frantic energy in it. But I like the way they set up like a phrase or an idea ... and then they'll go exploring off of that, sometimes in free improvisation, which Lage has not done at all. His recorded career has been very much driven by the standards and, sort of, the classic jazz songbook. You can feel that he's stretching maybe a little bit to fit into Nels' world. And Nels is probably moving a little bit toward him. It's definitely brokering a middle place between where each of them are comfortable. And here they're playing off each other and going in places I didn't expect. I like how you really hear the attacks, too. You're getting that sense of them being right next to each other, bouncing ideas." -- NPR
– Live With Intronaut CD (Century Media)
During an off-date of Cloudkicker's inaugural tour, in which Intronaut served as his backing band, the skilled musicians headed to Fathom Tree studio in Texas for a live-to-tape recording of their set. Vinyl version due December 16.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the 1984 solo album from the Oingo Boingo leader (and later film composer).
So-Lo was performed by members of Oingo Boingo, but deliberately not released under the Oingo Boingo name in order to circumvent a dispute with the band's record label. Elfman stated that he used the opportunity to release material that would not be suitable for an actual Oingo Boingo album, moving away from the band's ska origins and more towards mainstream synthpop.
>Brian Eno/Jon Hassell
– Fourth World Vol. 1: Possible Musics [Reissue/1980] CD/LP+CD (Glitterbeat)
Fourth World Vol. 1: Possible Musics was not only a defining moment in the development of what Eno coined as "ambient music" but it also facilitated the introduction of Hassell's "future primitive" trumpet stylings and visionary "Fourth World" musical theories to the broader public.
– Escape From Witchtropolis CD/LP (Trouble In Mind)
Austin, TX resident Alex Cuervo (Blacktop, Hex Dispensers) turned a few heads last year with his new project Espectrostatic; his synth-based electronic project in favor of spooky electronic pulses and synth drones a la John Carpenter and Tangeringe Dream.
Escape From Witchtropolis ups the anté with more sophisticated and subtle arrangements, letting the songs unfold organically, still inferring the presence of a soundtrack to an as-yet-unmade horror flick. (Vinyl on either mixed color or black wax.)
>Faith Evans
– Incomparable CD (BMG Rights Management)
New album from Faith Evans, the multiple platinum selling and Grammy award winning recording artist (seven-time nominee); New York Times best-selling author; television producer, and entrepreneur is currently celebrating a 20-year career in the music industry.

– j US t Us CD/LP+CD (Bureau B)
j US t—pronounced "Just Us"—is the new album from legendary Hamburg band Faust. Founder members Jean-Hervé Peron and Zappi Diermaier have laid down twelve musical foundations, inviting the whole world to use them as a base on which to build their own music. The tracks presented by Peron and Diermaier are clearly, intrinsically typical of Faust in their own right, yet offer enough space for completely different works to develop. Which is exactly what they hope will happen.
>Flake Music

>David Guetta
– Listen CD (Atlantic/Parlophone)
"Considering Guetta is one of the world's highest-paid DJs, it's not altogether surprising that a lot of people are curious about his latest foray into the lucrative world of EDM. The buzz surrounding Listen is pretty loud right now, thanks in part to the insane number of people David has assembled to help out with the endeavor. According to the folks at Your EDM, David Guetta reached out to a ton of A-list musicians to assist with his latest record, and Listen is essentially a who's who of top tier mainstream talent. If Guetta wanted to ensure that his album sells a ton of copies when it hits retail shelves later this year, then he found the perfect recipe." – Inquisitr

>Keith Jarrett/Charlie Haden/Paul Motan
– Hamburg '72 CD (ECM)
The legendary Keith Jarrett Trio, playing live at NDR Funkhaus, Hamburg. The trio with Haden and Motian formed in 1966 was Jarrett s first great band, his choice of players a masterstroke. With the bassist who had learned his craft in Ornette Coleman s band, and the drummer from Bill Evans' ground-breaking trio, Jarrett was able to explore the full scope of modern jazz, from poetic balladry to hard-swinging time-playing to ferocious and fiery free music, the improvisation including episodes with Keith on soprano sax. The interaction between the three musicians is uncanny throughout, reaching a peak in an emotion-drenched performance of Charlie Haden's "Song For Che."

>Jupiter Lion
– Brighter CD/2xLP (Bcore)
Jupiter Lion has most often drawn comparisons to the bygone Krautrock bands of Germany in the 1970s -- a time when the synthesizer became emblematic of thinking outside the confines of music theory and individuating German music more towards experimentation.

Debut album from the Australian electro house duo.

- L'ocean Reve Dans Sa Loisivete CD (Three Four)
Fashioned around the theme of the ocean symbolizing the subconscious, the hidden world and a very personal concept of "loisivete" a combination of idleness and law, Maninkari continues exploring a weird and dreamlike world. As usual, the Charlot brothers resort almost exclusively to the use of acoustic instruments with oriental origins (bodhran, cymbalom, santoor, zurna). Percussion instruments especially the bodhran play melodic or textural figures, whereas stringed instruments become repetitive to a point where they embody the rhythmics.

>Michael Mantler
– The Jazz Composer's Orchestra Update CD (ECM)
In 1968, composer-trumpeter Michael Mantler recorded
The Jazz Composer's Orchestra. Released by ECM, this classic, groundbreaking album of composition and improvisation featured Mantler conducting a large jazz orchestra that included some of the era's iconic free improvisers as soloists: pianist Cecil Taylor, cornetist Don Cherry, trombonist Roswell Rudd, saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, guitarist Larry Coryell, saxophonist Gato Barbieri.

>CJ Ramone
– Last Chance To Dance CD (Fat Wreck Chords)
By 1989's
Brain Drain, the Ramones' eleventh and least compelling album, the band appeared creatively exhausted. Rather than pick up a New York City/CBGB has-been to fill the enormous shoes left by departing bassist Dee Dee Ramone, the band chose Christopher Joseph Ward, a young punk kid fresh out of the Marine Corps. Christened CJ Ramone, the band hit the road in 1989 on an extensive world tour that culminated in 1991's Loco Live album. CJ is back in 2014 with Last Chance To Dance, a new album of even stronger material and a stellar backing band of Steve Soto (Adolescents), Dan Root (Adolescents) and David Hidalgo Jr. (Social Distortion).

– Image Fiction CD (Aerial Ballet)
Violinist Claire Watkins loop-based experimental pop is fleshed out with an army of synthesizers, guitars, and percussion, taking this former bedroom project to new heights. Peppered with film, TV, and literary references throughout, the title of this EP is a reference to David Foster Wallace's landmark essay
E Unibus Pluram, wherein Image Fiction is described as a post-post-modernist reaction in ‘90s fiction to pop culture centric, reference-based literature. You'll hear lyrical points of reference running the gamut from The Seventh Seal to Arrested Development.
>Secret Pyramid
– The Silent March/Movements Of Night 2xCD (Students Of Decay)
Double-CD set containing Secret Pyramid's two albums,
The Silent March and Movements Of Night. Originally released in 2011 on cassette, The Silent March can be viewed as something of a mission statement for Amir Abbey's skyriding Secret Pyramid project. Critics have compared his sound to the more blasted entries in the Popul Vuh catalog and to Flying Saucer Attack's cherished fuzz devotionals. 2013's Movements Of Night finds Abbey further develop and refine the haunting, faraway sound world that earned the aforementioned release well-due praise. Deftly navigating the properties of sleep and unconsciousness, Abbey charts a course that is equal parts harrowing and funereal, tranquil and sublime. With Movements Of Night, Abbey casts his net into the abyss of the unconscious and returns with a potent paean to the dreamworld. (The Silent March has also been reissued on vinyl.)

Native North America Vol. 1 features music from the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the northern United States, recorded in the turbulent decades between 1966 to 1985.

You'll hear echoes of Neil Young, Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, and more among the songs, but injected with Native consciousness, storytelling, poetry, history, and ceremony.

Recently released on vinyl and cassette - now available on CD. Put Ty Segall's newest fascination - right into the tape deck of the heart of your brain. It's fitting that Los Angeles-based four-piece Wand is signed to Segall's Drag City imprint God? Records. Both artists make music that hearkens back to the '60s and '70s, which beam with psych-tinged guitar riffs. But whereas Segall shreds with abrasive and reckless energy, Wand charms with infectious hooks and sugary psychedelia.

>Robin Williamson
– Trusting In The Rising Light CD (ECM)
Eight years on from the widely-acclaimed
Iron Stone recording, Scottish singer/songwriter, harpist and guitarist Robin Williamson returns with a new album of self-penned pieces thoughtful and touching meditations on love, destiny, the natural world, roads traveled, and the daily pleasures of being alive today. The album finds Williamson in fine voice and in best creative form on his diverse instruments, drawing inspiration also from the ingenious improvisational input of violist Mat Maneri (further developing the association initiated on Skirting The River Road) and percussionist Ches Smith (last heard on ECM with Tim Berne's Snakeoil band).
- Antichristus Ex Utero CD (Season Of Mist)
"For those not in the know, Witchmaster is a Polish black metal band with thrash/punk overtones who first appeared as long ago as 1996 with their Thrash or Die! demo. During that time they've had tracks put on various compilation albums, a couple of demos and now they're on their fifth full length album called
Antichristus Ex Utero. So, what can be expected from this album? Well, it's very decent and catchy. Earlier material is quite rough sounding and deliberately grimy; containing an interesting thrash and punk flavored slice of black metal. To my ears, their material reminds me of what I would imagine a black metal Discharge may have sounded like – and in this particular album it evokes memories of early Impaled Nazarene. Or more specifically, the Latex Cult period." – Echoes And Dust

>The Bite
– Right Down Your Alley LP (Bcore)
The Bite return with an orchestra of our best moments, the karaoke of our cavalry, the riffs that turn us into Pavlov poodles, crazy. They make us wag our tails, ask for beer, snap our fingers, leave, hug simple and beautiful things.

Surgical Steel was released late last year, there were several alternate versions released around the world with bonus tracks. This updated version captures all of those tracks in one release.
>The Cats
– Relax On Everyone LP (Def Lep Rex)
"Steeped in the kind of splintered '90s indie rock filigree that comes with triangulation between Philly college radio/WPRB saturation, a sideline in Jersey Shore pop punk regionalism … [and] raspy female vocals in the Peppermint Patty vein," says Doug Mosurock of Still Single. "The lack of polish across all tracks here works to their advantage … as this five-piece crawls and scrapes their way through two sides of hooky, tire-kicking material, jumping carelessly between budget studio and noisy four-track."

>Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
– Nocturama [Reissue/2003] 2xLP (Mute)

The album finds Steve mixing some of his older material written decades before such as "Mercenary Song," with choice covers of the Beatles "I'm Looking Through You," Townes Van Zandt's "Tecumseh Valley" and The Melodians reggae classic "Rivers Of Babylon".

This is one of the crown jewels in Steve's long and still ongoing recording career and it includes many highlights including "Feel Alright," "The Unrepentant," "CCKMP" and a great duet with Lucinda Williams on the album closing track "You're Still Standin' There." HQ-180gm.

Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The concept of the
Human Zoo has existed in art and literature for centuries, thus Electric Six recognizes and accepts it is not breaking new conceptual ground by naming its tenth studio album Human Zoo.

>JD Emmanuel

>Robert Lester Folsom
– Ode To A Rainy Day: Archives 1972-1975 LP (Anthology Recordings)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Anthology Recordings is proud to announce the reissue of Robert Lester Folsom's extraordinary 1976 album
Music And Dreams. To commemorate this repress Anthology label head Keith Abrahamsson worked closely with Alan Lomax Archive's Executive Director Don Fleming to compile a retrospective album of Folsom's early reel-to-reel recordings entitled Ode To A Rainy Day: Archives 1972-1975. Too young to be drafted, Robert Lester Folsom spent the ‘60s growing up in Adel, Georgia, a small town nearer to Florida's northern border than anything resembling rock & roll. Convincing a friend to go in on a Sears reel-to-reel tape recorder, Folsom would write and record a wealth of material in the early ‘70s which make up the backbone of Ode To A Rainy Day: Archives 1972-1975. Ostensibly more homemade, if not entirely "outsider", Ode showcases impeccable songwriting across light folk, downer pop and woodshed country tropes. The beauty of this archival album lies in its tracking of the seasons, how each song feels like a different time of year.
>Girl Talk
– Secret Diary [2002] LP (Illegal Art)
Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Girl Talk's first release, Illegal Art presents a limited edition picture disc version of
Secret Diary. "Secret Diary has more in common with the glitch/electro sound of Kid606 and Aphex Twin than the DJ-friendly pop styles Girl Talk exhibits today." - Pop Bunker
>Terence Hannum
– Via Negativa LP (Utech Recordings)
Via Negativa is the first solo album for Utech Records by visual artist and Locrian member, Terence Hannum. Incorporating voice and organ, Hannum creates a world where time slows and sound is reduced to the steady pulse of the universe. "Via Negativa" is Latin for "negative path." It is a means of distillation. A way of describing something by saying what it is not. You might say that ambient music is the music of subtraction subtract the melody, subtract the harmony, subtract the rhythm.
>Lee Hazlewood
- There's A Dream I've Been Saving: Lee Hazlewood Industries 1966-1971 8xLP+4xCD+DVD (Light In The Attic)
Released last year on CD – now available on vinyl. This landmark box set is the ultimate artifact for Lee Hazlewood heads new and old contains a lavishly packaged, expansive 172-page LP sized hard cover book. But every good book deserves a soundtrack and in this case it comes in the form of a four CD anthology of the LHI label, along with the never-before-released 1970 film
Cowboy In Sweden on DVD. A Deluxe Edition of the box set containing all of the above housed in a cloth-bound clamshell box (gold foil stamped and featuring a debossed silhouette of Lee) with reproductions of LHI-era artifacts including press photos and a reproduction plane ticket used by Hazlewood back in '70. But for the deluxe version the true icing on the cake is three DVD data discs which include just about every 45 single and every LP ever released on LHI - in both WAV and MP3 formats, along with cover and label art. At around 17 albums and 72 singles (totaling 305 songs!), that's a whole lot of Lee.
>Hollow Mountain

Whiskey Icarus, because you deserve it.
– Our Time Will Come LP (Metropolis)

Our Time Will Come.

Pure crust/dbeat.

>Ladder Devils
– Clean Hands LP (Brutal Panda)
Philadelphia, PA noise rock quartet Ladder Devils make their long awaited return with
Clean Hands, the first proper full-length for the band. Featuring former members of hardcore heroes The Minor Times, the group previously released a series of EPs and splits with Helms Alee, Kowloon Walled City and Fight Amp, leading up to the recording of this album. With tighter songwriting and cleaner production, the band mix the punk urgency of Nirvana with the sonic experimentation of The Pixies to create a sound that is all their own. Fans of post-hardcore, noise rock, grunge and loud indie rock will surely embrace the rattling sounds of Ladder Devils. "Ladder Devils straddle the line between Unsane and hardcore-isms, but they are on their own trip."—Noisey/Vice
>Larkin Poe
– Kin LP (RH Music)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Debut album from Atlanta-based sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell.

Originally released in 1995, Joe Lovano's
Quartets: Live At The Village Vanguard was named ‘Jazz Album Of The Year' by readers of Downbeat Magazine.
– Age Of Ruin 7" (Bcore)
Madee have become bullies, as well as sound literally. Clearly emo rock in the end.

>El Mahdy Jr.
– Spirit Of F**ked Up Places LP (Boomarm Nation)
El Mahdy Jr. and his family fled the brutal Civil war of his native Algeria in the ‘90s, relocating to Turkey. Upon returning years later to Algeria, Mahdy worked as a French-Arabic translator in Algeria and later in Burkina Faso. Sick in bed with malaria, he began to paint sonic pictures of his travels in exile; digitally decoding a hazy trance-induced melting of his native Algerian music, Turkish folk, the furious polyrhythms of West Africa, and his love of slow, low-slung rap beats.

>Mary Monday & The Bitches
- I Gave My Punk Jacket To Rickie 7" (HoZac)
Former stripper Mary Monday had a life shrouded in mystery, and conflicting reports in the historic documentation as to the band and Mary's origins are still baffling punkologists to this day, including her mysterious death a few years after this single's release. A classic piece of ‘70s SF punk history, as well as one of the most memorable singles of the era that sadly slipped through the cracks.

>Misantropic/Eaten Raw
- Misantropic/Eaten Raw [Split] LP (Halfabrikat)
A hardcore holocaust.

– Bury Me At Make Out Creek LP+MP3 (Double Double Whammy)
The classically trained vocalist and pop songwriter's new record recalls the work of Angel Olsen and Mount Eerie, combined with the power pop energy of contemporaries, Swearin
ʼ and Radiator Hospital. Praised by Stereogum for her vocal prowess and "walloping guitars" in latest single, "Townie," Mitski has already grabbed the attention of a growing audience in her hometown of Brooklyn, NY and on tour with label-mates LVL UP and Frankie Cosmos. Pressed on white vinyl.
>The Monochrome Set
– Eligible Bachelors [Reissue/1982] LP (Optic Nerve)
The third Monochrome Set album is one of the classic, undiscovered albums of the early '80s. Witty, eloquent, sophisticated pop. Expanded with two bonus tracks and pressed on color vinyl.

>Lee Morgan
– The Sidewinder [Reissue/1963] LP (Blue Note)
Recorded at Van Gelder Studio in 1963,
The Sidewinder by jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan was a runaway hit that reached number 25 on the Billboard chart. The title track, now a jazz standard, is one of the most influential recordings in soul jazz. All five tracks were written by Morgan and the album features respected tenor saxophonist, Joe Henderson.
>Don Murrow
- Souffrances Et Extases Du Jeune Amour LP (Flannel Graph)
This collection, whose title translates as "The Sufferings And Ecstasies Of Young Love", is full of euphoric uppers and depressing downers that float across genres as Muro lets his young emotions flow through catchy garage rockers to smooth AM gold ballads to arena-ready prog pop anthems to the analog synthesizer compositions for which he is best known. While comparisons could be made to anyone from The Zombies to Todd Rundgren to Carole King to Pilot to Elton John to Boston, the voice and direction throughout is distinctively Don Muro, who wrote, performed and recorded every note on the record.

>Negative Scanner
– Negative Scanner 7" (Tall Pat)
Raucous but tight post-punk a bit in the vein of early Sleater-Kinney.

>The New Basement Tapes
– Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes 2xLP+MP3 (Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes is a music event 47 years in the making. It's an historic album project from five of music's finest artists -- Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) -- in unique collaboration with a 26-year-old Bob Dylan. Produced by project creator T Bone Burnett, the album was recorded in March 2014 at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where the artists and Burnett convened for two weeks to write and create music for a treasure trove of long-lost lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes. The collective completed and recorded dozens of songs, the first 20 of which appear on this album.

Crustcore vs. crust/punk.

>Ann Peebles
– Part Time Love [Reissue/1971] CD (Fat Possum)
Vinyl Reissue of the great second album by the soul singer. Peebles was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the seventh child of eleven. As a child she began singing in the choir of her father's church and with the family's group, the Peebles Choir, who regularly opened shows for gospel stars including Mahalia Jackson and the Soul Stirrers featuring Sam Cooke. She was also influenced by R&B performers, including Muddy Waters, Mary Wells and Aretha Franklin.

Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. While it plays like a classic Prince album, produced, arranged, composed, and performed by the Man In Purple,
ART OFFICIAL AGE is also a contemporary concoction of soul, R&B and funk.
>Prince & 3rdeyegirl
– Plectrumelectrum LP (WB)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
Plectrumelectrum is a classic band record, with 3rdeyegirl – a funk band comprised of Prince, Donna Grantis (guitar), Hannah Ford Welton (drums) and Ida Nielsen (bass). Recorded live and in analog, the album is an electrifying funk-rock statement. Many of the tracks were performed live on the "Hit & Run" tours of the UK earlier this year - incendiary performances in a series of historic venues - which led The Guardian to declare ''These are performances by one of the greatest funk-rock bands ever.''
– Let's Go [Reissue/1994] LP+CD (Epitaph)
th Anniversary vinyl reissue of Rancid's fifth album. Includes full album on CD.
>The Raspberry Bulbs
– Privacy LP (Blackest Ever Black)
Songs of excoriating intensity once again form the basis of the work -- the no-frills 4-track recording capturing all the violence and nuance of del Rio's vocals, of the dual guitar rapport, and the machine-gun rhythm section -- but this time they're interspersed w/ eerie electronic miniatures, instrumental pieces that suggest unseen worlds, malign enemies, forces beyond out comprehension and control.

>Rolling Stones
– From The Vault: Hampton Coliseum (Live In 1981) 3xLP+DVD (Eagle Rock Entertainment)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The Rolling Stones American Tour in 1981 was the most successful tour of that year taking a then record $50 million dollars in ticket sales. The tour was in support of the critically and commercially successful
Tattoo You album. There were fifty dates on the tour which ran from Philadelphia at the end of September through to Hampton, Virginia on the 18th and 19th of December. The show on December 18th, which was also Keith Richards birthday, was the first ever music concert to be broadcast on television as a pay-per-view event. The footage has now been carefully restored with remixed/remastered audio by Bob Clearmountain for this first official release of the show.
>Secret Pyramid
– The Silent March [2011] LP (Students Of Decay)
Originally released in 2011 on cassette,
The Silent March is the precursor to 2013's Movements Of Night and can be viewed as something of a mission statement for Amir Abbey's skyriding Secret Pyramid project. Critics have compared the Secret Pyramid sound to the more blasted entries in the Popul Vuh catalog and to Flying Saucer Attack's cherished fuzz devotionals, and indeed Abbey's reverb-drenched song forms and titanic edifices of drone do feel at times as though they've been cut from the same cloth.
>Sin 34
– Do You Feel Safe? [Reissue/1983] LP (Sinister Torch)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Formed in the wake of the first wave of L.A. punk, Sin 34 epitomized the Southern California hardcore scene at the time. Fast, defiant thrash; one part suburban teenage rebellion, one part crass satire, all held together by a thread of reckless adventuring.

– Deep Mountain LP (Riot Season)
Behind the filthy power chords (redolent at times of Harvey Milk or Melvins), the overblown scut of Les Rallizes Denudes or Mainliner, and the state-altering sonics a la Bardo Pond, a mud-scuffed classic rock sensibility informs the songs and their structures.

>Son Of A Gun
– No Bread 7" (Tall Pat)
Garage punk from Chicago.

>Stale Phish
– Rock ‘n' Roll Revert 7" (Tall Pat)
Brings to mind the classic skate punk energy and fun of bands like JFA, Drunk Injuns, and The Faction.

– Sungod LP (Holodeck)
Five expansive tracks that condense decades into seconds and centuries into minutes. Michael Sharp and Braden Balentine, who record out of their home studio with a rotating cast of like-minded musicians from Austin, incorporate an ever-broadening inventory of influences; methodical arrangements and layers of meditative repetition hearken back to '70s krautrock, while polyrhythmic drums and arpeggiated synthesizers propel the procession forward in harmony with acoustically-oriented pieces.

>Sun Ra And His Astro-Infinity Arkestra
– Sign Of The Myth LP+MP3 (Roaratorio)
One of the early ‘70s lost Impulse recordings available for the first time. Recorded during the
Pathways To Unknown Worlds sessions (Impulse 1972), it shares that album's emphasis on guided improvisation. With constantly shifting palette of Moog textures, Sun Ra tosses off a dazzling array of ideas, supported by the usual Arkestra stalwarts; in particular bassist Ronnie Boykins and drummer Clifford Jarvis shine, giving shape and solidity to the pieces.
– Stills Lit Through LP (Software)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. A hallucinatory experience rife with echoes of Autechre's corporal maneuver.

– Chica Del Metro 7" (Bcore)
A great hymn of Barcelona's urban pop.

>Tenacious D
– Pick Of Destiny [Reissue/2006] LP+MP3 (Epic)
Limited HQ-180gm vinyl LP pressing includes digital download and one previously unreleased song.

>Torn Hawk
– Let's Cry And Do Pushups At The Same Time LP (Mexican Summer)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. It's difficult to neatly categorize Luke Wyatt's genre-refracting productions. The nuts and bolts are built from live guitar, drum machines, junky synths, and layers of samples which are smeared into a cohesive whole. His guitar moves between the meditations of Manuel Gottsching, the jangle-grid of The Chameleons, and the saturation of Medicine. Throw in the melodrama of a sax on a Don Henley hit, and you get a better idea of his playfully sincere sensibility.

>Otto A. Totland
– Pino LP (Sonic Pieces)
Released earlier this year on CD – now available on vinyl. The recognizable continuation of Totland's compositions will attract fans of Deaf Center, and the cinematic and classical components of his solo work will hold sway for those familiar with Harold Budd or Dustin O'Halloran.

>Various Artists
– A Distant Invitation: Street & Ceremonial Recordings LP (Sublime Frequencies)
A hallucinogenic splatter-drift audio meltdown through the streets and back alleys of Southeast Asia. Field recordings, radio segments, street musicians and gorgeous ambience.

>Velvet Acid Christ
– Subconscious Landscapes LP (Metropolis)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. VAC's 16th studio album calls on influences such as Juno Reactor, Massive Attack, and Delerium.

>Warning Light
– XXXI CD (Stickfigure)
A rapid-fire collection of Krautrock inspired electronic music.
XXXI still ebbs with ambience, but more importantly it flows. It is an album of movement and rhythm, somewhere between synthetic soundtracks and motorik electronica.

>Acid Baby Jesus – Selected Recordings CD/LP (Slovenly)
Representing the primitivism of Athens, Greece, steadily fornicating with the modern humps of the most ancient civilizations hitherto, Acid Baby Jesus has finally assembled a collection of recordings from their past two years on the rotation. The experiments on
Selected Recordings were formulated while spending many of those moments on a secluded island in the Mediterranean sea, populated by a(n) (r)evolutionary cast of travelers, all starving for an heady atmosphere and a delicious salad. Many records were played on record players at these assemblages.
>Ariel Pink

Across its 17 tracks and 69 minutes,

Now, he is sailing under his own flag, proving once again that his multi-instrumental skills know no creative boundaries. With his excellent occupied Low Desert Punk Band, Bjork lets the scorching heat of Nevada shimmer in his songs. He also scrubs his guitar through all sorts of psychedelic effect pedals and skillfully mixes stoner rock, blues and doom-bonds to a feverish hazy brew.

>Black Taxi
– Electro Death Grip CD (No Shame)
Most of the songs on
Electro Death Grip are danceable pop jams with heavily funked-out guitar lines a-la Nile Rogers and Daft Punk. The tracks are fun and rhythmic, but at the same time, laced with the dark, sarcastic lyrics for which Black Taxi is known. The album is introspective and retrospective in its lyrical content, and futuristic in its production. Moog synths, fat trumpet lines, and jangly tambourines pay their respects to 1970s-era funk and disco records while deep, punchy drum production gives the album an ultra-modern feel.
>David Bowie
– Nothing Has Changed 3xCD/3xCD/2xLP (Sony Legacy)
Nothing Has Changed (named after a lyric from the Heathen album opener "Sunday") compiles tracks from every period of Bowie's career from his earliest incarnations with "Liza Jane" and "Can't Help Thinking About Me" right up to James Murphy's "Hello Steve Reich Mix" of "Love Is Lost" from last year.

Allen (best known for his production work with The Cure, Depeche Mode and Neneh Cherry). The Way packs the same classic UK pop punk punch they've been known for over nearly four decades. Available on CD, cassette and on white vinyl.
>Captain Beefheart
– Sun Zoom Spark: 1970-1972 4xCD/4xLP (Rhino)
In the wonderfully idiosyncratic discography of the-one-of-a-kind artist Captain Beefheart (aka Don Van Vliet), attention usually focuses on the carefully wrought, experimental music heard on his noted masterwork
Trout Mask Replica. As a consequence, the three stellar albums recorded soon after Lick My Decals Off, Baby (1970), The Spotlight Kid (1972) and Clear Spot (1972) are often criminally overlooked. This limited edition box set revisits these albums Beefheart recorded with the Magic Band in the early-‘70s. It includes all three albums, which have been remastered for the first time, as well as an entire LP featuring 14 previously unissued outtakes from the era.

>Daniella Cotton
– The Real Book CD (Cottonwood)
Danielia Cotton is a rare breed, an R&B singer who can sing rock, a rock singer with serious gospel and R&B chops.
The Real Book is an album of iconic covers, from Abbey Lincoln and The Staples Singers to Radiohead and Bruno Mars, and Cotton proves that she is up to the task. Rachael Yamagata, Amy Helm and Tracy Bonham duet with Cotton, and radio is jumping on several songs, most notably the Yamagata-Cotton duet of Eurythmics classic "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)."
– Get Olde/Second Wind CD/LP (Run For Cover)
Crying would not be possible without the power of nostalgia. The New York-based band is a blend of all things old-school: they mix an understated ‘90s emo influence, the spirit of punk in their original vision, and, most notably, the prominent use of a Gameboy programmed into their songs. Their first release on Run For Cover includes the critically acclaimed self-released EP,
Get Olde, and a set of new songs on the EP Second Wind. All of the thirteen songs have an upbeat eloquence, but the highlight of the album is vocalist Elaiza Santos.
>Defeat The Low
– A Nervous Smile CD/LP+CD (Rise)

Solo recordings by group members are also included from 1956 to 1963, the time they were recording together.

– Brutal Romantic CD (Vagrant)
Fourth album from New Zealand singer/songwriter Brooke Fraser. "Brooke Fraser leaves the gentle acoustic-pop of breakthrough albums
Albertine and Flags well and truly behind on brilliant electro-pop experiment Brutal Romantic. The Kiwi's fourth LP is heavily inspired by Scandinavian music (Peter Bjorn And John and Lykke Li, for starters) and those influences shape the eclectic, emotionally raw and sonically ambitious songs." -- Idolator

Debut album from dance music elder statesmen, Knife Party.

>Kool Keith
– El Dorado Driven CD (Volunteer Media)

– Vapor City Archives CD/2xLP+MP3 (Ninja Tune)
"The veteran producer released his
Vapor City LP last year, with the album reportedly inspired ‘by a metropolis of the same name which Travis Stewart has visited in a series of life-long recurring dreams.' Vapor City experimented with tropes of hip-hop, jungle and footwork as well as displaying the IDM influences that date back to his first record released in 2001. The Vapor City Archives is set to continue in a similar vein and will mark the end of Stewart's explorations into his conceptual metropolis." -- FactMag
>Manchester Orchestra
– Hope CD (Loma Vista/Concord)
Cope signified a definitive landmark in Manchester Orchestra's career. It proved the crowning statement that defined what past albums such as Simple Math and Mean Everything To Nothing built towards and culminated the years of heart, soul, blood, sweat and tears poured in by Andy Hull and his team. As an all—out rock band, dancing from folky to alternative to heavy grunge at times, their guitar—driven disposition often defined them, accompanying the soothing yet pained words of Hull. Now, with years of variance under their belt, a profound sense of maturity and a feeling that they've found their true sound at long last (and jeez, was it a fun ride watching them doing so along the way), Hope charters semi—new territory as a stripped down inversion of this year's release. Bare—boned, packing emotive content minus the electric aspect of the band yet continuing Hull's narrative structure of the world's weight bearing down on his shoulders" – Vinyl version due November 24.
>Delfeayo Marsalis

Based around text from Paul Smith's travel writing, and Peter Brewis's chamber-band arrangements, the pair has collaborated on a suite of songs, creating a restrained yet richly descriptive sound-world.

– Seeds CD/2xLP (Harvest/Caroline)
"For their first record since 2011's
Nine Types Of Light, Dave Sitek, Tunde Adebimpe, Kyp Malone and Jaleel Bunton have had to overcome severe adversity, following the untimely death of bassist Gerard Smith a week after Nine Types Of Light's release. Indeed, lead singer Adebimpe recently acknowledged that 'we've been through a lot of stuff in the past few years that could have stopped the band cold.' Smith's passing, however, galvanized the remaining four-piece to continue making music in his honor, and Seeds is a credit to their bassist's memory: staying true to the TOTR ethos of writing music that yo-yos between genres, its 12 expansive tracks make for a compelling and frankly splendid record that you should seriously consider adding to your collection" – Drowned In Sound.

– Unseen Ripples From A Pebble CD/LP (Optic Nerve)
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the UK band's debut album plus 15 bonus tracks. This expanded version of the album contains the band's entire recorded output for the Pink label as well as the 7'' version of ''Me'' that was released on Idea Records. The Wolfhounds formed in 1985 and debuted in the spring of 1986 with the EP
Cut The Cake. Despite the record's gritty, intense approach, it nevertheless landed the Wolfhounds a spot on the NME's legendary C-86 compilation cassette, the 22-track compilation ended up being so influential that it resulted in the unintentional creation of a new subgenre. The Wolfhounds were more post punk than jangle pop, and their incendiary live shows saw them build up a loyal following throughout Europe, where they toured regularly supporting The House Of Love and My Bloody Valentine.

Twelfth studio album from the country great and her first in seven years.

>Zero Boys
– Hollywood CDEP/7" (Z Disk)
Terry "Hollywood" Howe passed away in 2000, and was the Zero Boys' original guitar player and laid the foundation of our sound. He built perfect, catchy rock & roll songs. He destroyed boredom with a blast of electric guitar. He understood that life was simple, true, loud, and a little out of control. Leaving behind many unused recordings, the Zero Boys opted to listen to his songs and re-record them, in tribute.

Forum for a five-night stint from July 9th to 13th and this concert film features the show from July 12th.

- The Process of Self-Immolation LP (Gilead Media)
Alraune is a Nashville-based occult black-metal quartet. "An absolute beast of a recording. The band's take on occult black metal stylings draw from the Scandinavian masters, the French introverts, and their own depraved visions, singlehandedly creating a new standard for USBM to strive towards." – Pitchfork

>Angels & Airwaves
– Love Albums Part I & II 4xLP (Shop Radio Cast)
Angels & Airwaves' 2010 and 2011 albums are available for the first time on (pink) vinyl.

>Bad Axe
– Coachman b/w Poor Man, Run 7" (Permanent)
As garage faded, psych imploded and rock n roll took its bloated FM dominance to arenas nationwide, there were scores of bands that sought to ingest those Zep/Sabbath/Deep Purple/Blue Cheer moves and make them their own rally cry. Call it a second wave of "garage bands" but this time the music was more fitted for dark, hazy wood paneled basements with the requisite hi-fis, joints and cheap beers stolen from dad. These kids just outta high school, rejecting AM pop and the idealism of their hippie older siblings, set out to make their own way in the dystopian ‘70s.

>Band In Heaven
– The Boys Of Summer Sam 7" (HoZac)
Two direct hits of skull-softening Middle-Eastern tinged space rock destined to drain the fluids from your ears, while seductively stealing your valuable organs for the black market.

Following on the success of 2012's collaborative EP between Travis Barker and Yelawolf,
Psycho White is now available for the first time ever on vinyl.
>Basement Jaxx
– The Singles [2005] 2xLP (XL)

HQ-180gm reissue of Belly's debut (originally released on 4AD in 1993).

>The Blind Shake
– Breakfast of Failures LP (Goner)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Minneapolis three-piece The Blind Shake crafts dense, massive locomotive music—powerful sounds with the ability to careen through one cinematic, post-apocalyptic chase scene after another. "The Blind Shake is at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party. One guitar, one baritone guitar, a f**kload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic medal." —SF Weekly

>The Bloodhounds
– Let Loose LP (Alive)
Released last week on CD – now available on vinyl. The Bloodhounds play blues/R&B rock & roll with a fresh, edgy, almost punk edge, and add a hint of a Latin groove to the mix. Though founded on an electric sound they also dig the old jug band style of playing. Picking up cheap acoustic guitars, turning ordinary household items into instruments and constructing a traditional washtub-broomstick bass, they often busk in the streets of downtown Los Angeles to the delight of large crowds.

– Pottymouth [Reissue/1993] LP (Kill Rock Stars)
Pink vinyl reissue of 1993 album. Along with Bikini Kill, Bratmobile spearheaded the riot grrrl revolution of the early ‘90s.

– 5 Imaginary Boys 7" (HoZac)
Combines five glimpses into the Connections' melodically off-kilter yet always honest and bitter world, taking perfectly strung-out pop to another level of sardonic simplicity in each burst after bleeding burst.

– Brick Factory [Reissue/1994] LP+MP3 (Happy Happy Birthday To Me)
20th anniversary reissue with download including 21 bonus songs. Crayon took the burgeoning sound of twee pop and added punk elements, sounding something like a cross between UK indiepop bands like the Pastels and more abrasive American bands like Unwound.

>Dada Plan
– A Dada Plan Is Free LP (Kingfisher Bluez)
"Dada Plan emerge from the picturesque Great Bear Rainforest in Vancouver with their blend of trip-hop, orchestral noise polluted, synth storm rock."—Creem Magazine. "
A Dada Plan Is Free sounds like '80s outsider pop, with retro drum-machine programming and synth sounds from [Matt] Krysko's Roland Juno-60, but it's no pale homage. There is a deeper meaning at work here, a haunting, dystopian tinge to its chill metropolitan grooves inspired by Brian Eno and Robert Wyatt"—The Georgia Straight
>Dream Salon
– Soft Stab LP+MP3 (Sweet Rot/Dragnet)
If you've been paying attention to the NW rock underground of the past decade or so, you're likely familiar with the names Min Yee, Matthew Ford and Craig Chambers who have collectively played in bands like Evening Meetings, A Frames, Intelligence, Le Sang Song, Factums, Yves/Son/Ace, etc.

>Electric Eels
– Accident 7" (HoZac)
Another devastating chunk of festering Midwest protopunk from these scurrilous sub-creatures of Ohio's rich musical history. Two more cauterizing cuts of whiplash thug rock your thin plane of existence just might not survive without.

>Enema Syringe
– Upshutlenvolte 7" (Fragment Factory)
Three previously unreleased tracks from 1987, recorded in Örebro, Sweden. Raw and primitive staccato electronics with Kai Parviainen's specific touch of utter insanity.

>England's Glory
– City Of Fun 7" (HoZac)
England's Glory is the first performing band lead by UK songwriter Peter Perrett, later known across the world for his work w/the critically acclaimed Only Ones. Sounding nothing like anything else from the era, this 1971 single soars through the highs and lows of the real heartbeat of 1970s rock & roll, sounding startlingly modern even 40 years later.

>Father Yod & The Spirit Of '76
– Kohoutek LP (Drag City)
Kohoutek was the first spontaneous release that was made into a record, credited to Father Yod & The Spirit Of 76. Released in 1973, the year of Kohoutek, when the immanent arrival of the big comet spawned a new round of cosmic consciousness in the media and with people all over the planet. The two sides of Kohoutek are a special jam that passes through tranquility to exultation, a tapping of the passing flame in the skies and a greeting from Father to the messenger and bearer of such awesome gifts. Very pure.
>F**k Knights
– A Taste Of Puke 7" (Go Ape!)
12 minutes of intoxicating psychedelic garage punk.

>Ruth Garbus
– Joule EP 7" (OSR)
The former Happy Birthday member is joined by Kyle Thomas (King Tuff) and Chris Weisman on her new single. Previous albums on Autumn and Burger. RIYL: tUnEyArDs, White Fence, Jessica Pratt, Sharon Van Etten.

>M. Geddes Gengras
- Collected Works Vol. 2: New Process Music LP (Umor Rex)
New Process Music represents a major aesthetic shift, fusing the long-form modular compositions Geddes had been exploring on a bevy of small-run cassette releases with a new obsession with post-production editing to create a deeply tuned aural environment, lush analog electronics that are gritty along the edges, with rich textures and melodies materializing and wafting away like smoke. Opaque cyan vinyl.
>Steve Gunn
- Boerum Palace [Reissue/2009] LP+MP3 (Three Lobed)
Boerum Palace is Steve Gunn's second album, originally released in 2009 and is now available as a limited 140gm purple/white color vinyl pressing with insert and download code. Gunn will release a collaborative album with The Black Twig Pickers on Thrill Jockey February 2015.
– Waves LP+MP3 (Trouble In Mind)
Holögrama is the recording project of Fancisco Borja, an electronic musician from Granade, Spain. After self-releasing a slew of online albums, EPs and hand-made CDRs,
Waves marks his debut to the vinyl format. Borja performs and records the majority of everything himself, using synths, drum machines and whatever odds and ends he can scrape together to orchestrate Holögrama's sound. Think Rev and Vega, but with a more positive, hopeful vibe tinged with a whisper of melancholy.
>Patterson Hood
– Killers And Stars [Reissue/2004] LP+MP3 (New West)
Reissue of the Drive-By Trucker's frontman's solo album from 2004, available for the first time on vinyl. HQ-180gm including new liner notes from Patterson.

>Horse Lords
– Hidden Cities LP (NNA Tapes)

Recorded and mixed by Chris Freeland (Wye Oak, Lower Dens), on
Hidden Cities Horse Lords square the circle, making music that is alternately tight and loose, real-time risky and process oriented, reconciling the sweaty force of a killer basement show with the icy precision of conservatory training.
>Ice Choir
– Pure Holiday 7" (Cascine)
One of two singles produced for the 2014 holiday season and the first release since his debut album,
Afar. Each track, wrapped in a glistening synth pop package, surrounds themes of caring for one another and connectedness. All proceeds from this recording will be donated to Coalition For The Homeless.
- Psychedelic Snutskallar LP (540 Records)
Peerless d-beat, a work of art.

>Eiko Ishibashi
– Car & Freezer LP (Drag City)
The sound of
Car & Freezer has a swinging openness, with looser, rolling rhythms that suit the mood of exploration and the sense of introspection that are so much a part of Eiko's songs. The band's (Jim O'Rourke, Toshiaki Sudo, Hatano Atsuko and Yamamoto Tatsuhisa) expertly precise playing is contrasted by their intuitive choices within the songs, which are seized upon by Eiko for mood and color.
>Ken Jennings

Three new songs of thrashy emo punk from the suburbs of Vancouver's DIY scene.

>Sharon Jones

Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Sourced soon after the re-release of

– The Fish & The Fist 10" (Soleilmoon)
With their new 10" EP, Swedish band Lovac return to explore desolate places far beyond the familiar and comfortable.
The Fish & The Fist follows their 2010 debut Apes Of A Cold God with a new goth-tronic sound lifted aloft by Anders Carlsson's baritone and Erica Li's pure alto voices, and carried further with the inventive compositions and mixing of Andreas Catjar and Martin Krall.

Home Everywhere: a collection of new songs created with a gaze that is omnidirectional. An answer to no other band, movement or genre (don't be lazy, you). An ambitious work that could be no one else but said three lifer music weirdies in full inspiration mode.
>Mobb Deep
– Hell On Earth [Reissue/1996] 2xLP (Get On Down)
By the time Mobb Deep hit with their third album
Hell On Earth - they were solidified street legends. Coming off the critically acclaimed The Infamous, Havoc and Prodigy hit the lab and came back with a soundtrack that is fitting to its title.
>No Doubt

>Only Wolf
– Chemicals LP (Kingfisher Bluez)
Taking his name from a terrifying encounter with a pack of hungry wolves, Sean Parker's debut album as Only Wolf is a sprawling, late night drive of a record, that feels precise, organic and infinitely spaced out. Growing up between Canada, Spain, and the French Alps, he took in the natural sounds of the countryside -- crashing waves, clinking cowbells and creaking trees -- and armed with an MPC1000 drum machine and a guitar, distilled it into a sound that feels natural and otherworldly at the same time. Triple-color splatter vinyl.

>Pink Avalanche
– The Luminous Heart Of Nowhere LP+MP3 (Past/Futures)
Sophomore release from members of Atombombpocketknife, Poison Arrows, Brokeback, and Chatty Cathy.
The Luminous Heart Of Nowhere might evoke a sense of an ethereal void, but its music is firmly rooted in Midwestern underground rock. The band's driving, bold melodic sound hearkens to that of myriad Midwestern noisemakers like Rodan, Arcwelder and Naked Raygun.
>Joshua Rainhorn/Paulinho & Beatriz
- Wine & Cigarettes b/w Voce Tem 7" (Drag City)
Volume Three of the
Fred Armisen Presents Hometown Heroes series from Drag City. Joshua Rainhorn's imagery evoked a world of old wine bars and coffee-stained book covers. Honkytonk music and worn out shoes. Elusive, mysterious lovers. Paulinho & Beatriz hail from Brazil and experiment with jazz and traditional Brazilian music.
– LP3 CD (Side One Dummy)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. "Restorations' third album in four years marks a quick progression from its emo and pop-punk roots to the gruff and grandiose heartland rock that always hovered in the background. Think of the punks raised on Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, if you must — The Gaslight Anthem, The Hold Steady, Constantines — but LP3 is more reminiscent of when the late-'90s emo band Chamberlain." – NPR

– Kykeon LP+MP3 (Thrill Jockey)

Charles Speer And The Helix, No Neck Blues Band), Jimy SeiTang (Stygian Stride) and Rob Smith (Pigeons) Rhyton take ancestral forms, instrumentation and scales, primarily sourced from Middle Eastern and Greek traditions, and incorporate them into the context of scorching improvised rock.

Black Light. Collaborating on this album with Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral), it is a marked departure from her 2012 debut Uncut - stripping back and laying bare the beautiful song-craft of an artist clearly in her prime. The result is a selection of twelve delicate and heart-felt, folk-infused tracks woven into In The Seams - full of lush strings, softly plucked guitars and tender vocals.
>Sha La Das
– Sha La Da La La (Christmas Time) 7" (Daptone)
You may recognize their doo-wop tinged harmonies from such smash records as Charles Bradley's
Victim Of Love.
– Filth [Reissue/193] LP (Young God)
Vinyl reissue of Swans' debut album. Michael Gira says: "Here's some music I was listening to at the time: Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, The Stooges, Brian Eno, Teenage Jesus And The Jerks, DNA, The Contortions, Glenn Branca, Black Flag, early Pink Floyd, This Heat, Kraftwerk, The Germs, Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Public Image Ltd., SPK… "

>Sylvie Simmons
– Sylvie LP (Light In The Attic)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Debut album by esteemed writer and Leonard Cohen biographer. Like Devendra Banhart says, this is "a gem of an album, fragile and fearless, direct and poetic, timeless and absolutely beautiful. Like Rosalie Sorrels meets the Only Ones." Or Isobel Campbell on a lost desert night, maybe, with only the moon and a ukulele for company.

– EP3 12" (ATP Recordings)

Tracing threads from their previous deconstructed dancefloor works into thrilling new directions, the

Released last week on CD – now available on vinyl. Sasu Ripatti is one of electronic music's most prolific and eclectic producers.

He returns now under his Vladislav Delay moniker with a uniquely inspired album.
Visa is Ripatti's first foray into ambient music in over ten years, yet it is not simply passive background music. Rather it is an active entity, a soundscape built from textured layers of evocative industrial noises and dream-like melodic loops.
>Chris Weisman
– Monet In The ‘90s LP+MP3 (OSR)
New solo album from the former member of Happy Birthday (the short-lived and long-loved Sub Pop outfit).

- Savage Sons Of Yahowa [Reissue/1974] LP (Drag City)
Musically, YaHoWa13 go it on their own, with Octavius, Sunflower, Djinn, and Rhythm collaborating with Electron, who supplies powerful lead vocals. The guttural nature of Electron's vocal sound may recall the name of Beefheart to some, and Electron is occupying the same unconsciousness, free in the communal slipstream, with less blues and more country gospel in his soul.

>Adrian Younge
– Black Dynamite [OST/2009] LP (Linear Labs)
The first official release from multi-instrumentalist/composer/arranger/producer Adrian Younge,

>The Rance Allen Group
– Celebrate CD (Tyscot)
"You don't reinvent yourself; you get better with what you do" -- Bill Cosby. Like the comedy legend, The Rance Allen Group knows a thing or two about getting better with time and their new release,

>…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
– IX 2xCD (Superball Music)
"On their ninth album …And You Will Us By The Trail Of Dead are steadily continuing their journey towards being a normal rock band, but remain unable to quite finish it. As far back as their first album they've been touring the various hotspots of psychedelia, punk, classical and world music, all with a maniacal, effervescent touch. Accuse them of failing at some of these stylistic endeavors, fine - but to their immense credit, they've never been mere genre dilettantes. Nor is
IX a reactionary 'back-to-basics' attempt at shedding their excesses; it's confirmation that TOD haven't forgotten how to write exemplary, robust rock songs." – The Quietus
>Anatomy Of Habit
– Ciphers + Axioms CD/LP (Relapse)

>Andrea Belfi
– Natura Morta CD/LP+MP3 (Miasmah)
Belfi mixes influences from both Italian minimalism and the electro-acoustic contemporary scene.
Natura Morta fits somewhere between the electronics of Keith Fullerton Whitman, the percussive repetitions of Jon Mueller, and the atmospheric sensibility of Pan American.
– Mountain Jewel CD (Dark Decent)
Anguish's brand new album,
Mountain Jewel, sees the band expanding upon their oppressive brand of doom metal. The follow-up of 2012's Through The Archdemon's Head is stripped down from its predecessor, clocking in at 48 minutes (eight tracks) but injects more variation.
>Brogan Bently
– The Snake CD (Stones Throw)

>Big K.R.I.T.
– Cadillactica CD (Def Jam)
"For his second Def Jam album,
Cadillactica, Mississippi hip-hop auteur Big K.R.I.T. leaves behind the ‘dirty dirty third coast muddy water' and blasts right off into the stratosphere. The album is a 15-song Afro-futurist concept-suite taking place on the fictional planet named in the title. To take us there, K.R.I.T. has expanded his sonic palette to boldly go where his dependable country-rap mixtapes have never gone before – rubbery Zapp noises, choirs of Kate Bush-style moans, cinematic marching band drums, cicadas – in addition to his first time ever working with multiple outside producers (including Raphael Saddiq and Jim Jonsin)." – Rolling Stone

>Broughton's Rules
– Anechoic Horizon CD (Relapse)
A post-rock band with a bit of the Don Caballero in them (literally and figuratively), Broughton's Rules unleash their second record of emotive guitar signalling and climactic skyscraping.
Anechoic Horizon is a purely instrumental work that evokes the genre's blank and beautiful heydays.
>Zac Brown Band

>Celestial Shore
– Enter Ghost CD/LP+MP3 (Hometapes)
Celestial Shore's second album,
Enter Ghost, is a directive, a confession, and a confrontation. It's the reflection of its makers -- Sam Owens, Greg Albert, and Max Almario -- and the follow-up to 10x, their 2013 debut. It's a rock record, and one with the power to time travel with its instruments intact: the electric guitar, the electric bass, and the drum kit. (Vinyl pressed on milky-clear wax.)
>The Circus Devils
– Escape CD/LP (Happy Jack)
The 13th full-length from former Guided By Voices members takes a break from their brash psychedelic rock to gear down with a collection of acoustic ballads; friendly, lo-fi pop; and murky, otherworldly mood pieces.

– The Great And Secret Show CD (Nuclear Blast)
"Having fronted black metallers Cradle Of Filth for over two decades, Dani Filth has turned his mangled hand to something else and, with promises from his side-project, Temple Of The Black Moon continually falling short, this outing with Devilment on
The Great And Secret Show is a welcome one. As long as you delve into this album expecting something different from Cradle Of Filth, then there's plenty to dig your claws into. Devilment's core sound is based around earth-shattering riffs from Daniel Finch and Colin Parks, whose thick, defiant guitars anchor the record, allowing them to embrace a smorgasbord of styles while still remaining true to their original form." –
>Dire Omen
– Wrestling The Revelation Of Futility CD (Dark Decent)
Genuine charnel and blackened death metal from Canada.

>Dirty Beaches
– Stateless CD/LP (Zoo Music)
On the four-song (his final album as Dirty Beaches)
Stateless, Zhang Hungtai further explores the instrumental side of his identity that has been present since his first release in 2007. The album is a reflection on Zhang Hungtai's upbringing in various locales (Taipei/Honolulu/Montreal) and the past two years of living and drifting in Europe.

– Kill My Only Enemy CD (Disdained)
Debut album from the female-fronted progressive metal band.

>Downfall Of Gaia
- Aeon Unveils The Thrones Of Decay CD (Metal Blade)
As a slave to time, mankind is marching to the beat of a perpetually ticking clock. Musically, the album gives the listener less time to breath and features a more aggressive songwriting style than fans have heard on Downfall Of Gaia‘s their previous releases. It is as aggressive and relentless as time itself.

>Dream Police
– Hypnotized CD (Sacred Bones)
Dream Police is an American musical production by Nick Chiericozzi and Mark Perro. The project began in 2010 as a reservoir for ideas that overflowed from The Men's drain pipe. In that same year, a two-song cassette single was self-released, with a follow-up live document in 2011. Most recently, the duo has conceived an LP with longtime sonic partner, Kyle Keays-Hagerman from late 2013 through early 2014. Although the production began using the most conservative rock and roll devices, it slowly plumed into a cloud of future primitive psychedelia.

>Foo Fighters
– Sonic Highways CD/LP (RCA)
Though not a soundtrack album by any stretch,
Sonic Highways shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed currently running HBO series described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music. For the album and series, Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear wrote and recorded one song in each of these eight cities, delving into the local musical currents: how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns. Available on CD and vinyl.

>Hanzel Und Gretyl
– Black Forest Metal CD/LP (Metropolis)
Black Forest Metal is the band's seventh studio release, and marks the beginning of a new era: darker, heavier, and more metal than metal.
– The Hum CD/LP (Domino)
Hookworms' reputation, like
The Hum itself, lies in the drone and the uncontrollable constants of their music that remain even after they've shattered its thick atmosphere with sharp punches of proto-punk-inspired malevolence. Flinging themselves into the public's consciousness with 2013's Pearl Mystic, their debut LP's perfect storm of billowing textures and napalm-filled Modern Lovers licks was one of the most-acclaimed albums of 2013 -- receiving plaudits from The Guardian, NME and Drowned In Sound -- where it was their Album Of The Year.

>Allan Kaprow
– How To Make A Happening [Reissue/1966] CD (Primary Information)
Allan Kaprow lays out eleven rules on how, and how not, to participate in the art movement he began in the late 1950s and which became known for its unpredictability, open scores, and constantly-evolving form. On Primary Information's CD—reissued with the cooperation of the Estate of Allan Kaprow and the Getty Research Institute—he speaks plainly into a microphone, delivering private cut-to-the-chase style instruction on Happenings that is both informative and contradictory, both a practical and theoretical how-to with frequent dead-pan humor.

Black Beauty, the never-before-released masterpiece by Arthur Lee's legendary band Love is making its first-ever official release in any format. Chosen as one of Time Magazine's most anticipated releases, critics are hailing the album as an instant classic. Black Beauty is that rarest of rock artifacts: an un-released, full-length studio album, from an undisputed musical genius. It represents the missing link in a catalog that also includes Forever Changes, the seminal 1967 Love album the New York Times called "one of the most affecting and beguiling albums of all time." With Black Beauty, Arthur Lee manages to combine searing '70s rock with gorgeous melodies and stellar songwriting - topped off by his most distinctive, snarling, soulful vocals ever.
>Machine Head
– Bloodstone & Diamonds CD/LP (Nuclear Blast)
Eighth album from the Bay Area metal titans – available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe Edition includes a limited edition 48-page hardcover book created by Rafal Wechterowicz, Marco Vasco and long-time Machine Head art collaborator Strephon Taylor.

>Mega Bog
– Gone Banana CD (Couple Skate)
A swirling pop cloud influenced equally by the emotional psychedelia of Kevin Ayers and the pop whimsy of Steely Dan. Sounding equal parts Ariel Pink and Prefab Sprout, Mega Bog rip through nine hazy burners with a sneaky tightness hidden behind layers of drizzle and reverb.

>Idina Menzel
– Live Barefoot At The Symphony CD+DVD (Concord)
2014 may very well be the year of Idina Menzel. The multi-talented actress and singer was thrust into the mainstream pop culture dialogue earlier this year with her performance of ''Let it Go,'' the enormously popular song off 2013's
Frozen soundtrack. The track not only won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2014, but has also remained at the top of the Billboard charts for months, selling millions of units worldwide.

>The New Basement Tapes
– Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes CD (Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest)
Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes is a music event 47 years in the making.

Produced by project creator T Bone Burnett, the album was recorded in March, 2014 at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where the artists and Burnett convened for two weeks to write and create music for a treasure trove of long-lost lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes. Available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe includes five additional tracks. Vinyl version due November 24.
>New Build
– Pour It On CD/2xLP (Kartel)
"The various members of Hot Chip have, by now, spawned enough splinter material to allow us to move on from constant comparisons to the Mothership. Joe Goddard is two albums deep with The 2 Bears, and now fellow chips off the old block Al Doyle and Felix Martin have teamed up once again with studio engineer Tom Hopkins for New Build's second album outing.
Pour It On drives much further into the territory of electronic dance than their indie-leaning debut, with classic house-tinged characteristics propping up new wave vocals and synths. The lyrics can spill into the realm of over-earnestness at points, but overall this is slick and dancefloor-ready." – Clash Music
– We Are Nots CD/LP (Goner)
Guitar-driven, synth-laden debut album from current/former members of Ex-Cult, Manatees.

>Old Man Gloom
– The Ape Of God I CD (Profound Lore)
Old Man Gloom – The Ape Of God II CD (Profound Lore)
A pair of new albums from one of the most inventive and influential bands in the post-hardcore/post-metal/experimental scene.
The Ape Of God balances colossal heaviness, experimental/ambient noise and a unique aesthetic presentation.
– Africa Avenue CD/LP+MP3 (Trouble In Mind)
Recorded by the band themselves in bassist Peter Stringer-Hye's Nasville garage and mixed by Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin' Bajas),
Africa Avenue finds it's groove in it's unabashed melodicism and pop hooks. The band makes no bones of it's affection for ‘60s and ‘70s psychedelia, but Africa Avenue quietly tiptoes around easy comparisons, mutating itself into something more textured and intricate, leaning more towards avant-pop. (Limited quantities available on mixed color vinyl.)
>Pink Floyd
– The Endless River CD/CD+DVD/CD+Blu-ray/2xLP+MP3 (Columbia/Sony)
In early 1993, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright set up their equipment in their own Britannia Row Studios in Islington and created more than hundred pieces of music by jamming together, interacting with each other's performances and recording the results. In 2014 David Gilmour and Nick Mason re-entered the studio and, starting with unreleased keyboard performances by Richard Wright, who sadly died in 2008, added further instrumentation to the tracks, as well as creating new material. The result is
The Endless River, including 60% of recordings other than the 1993 sessions, but based upon them. The title is a further link, '... the endless river…' being part of the closing phrases of "High Hopes," the final song of the previous Pink Floyd album. Available in Regular and Deluxe editions.

>Damien Rice
– My Favourite Faded Fantasy CD/2xLP+MP3 (WB)
My Favourite Faded Fantasy is Damien Rice's first collection of material in eight years and was produced by Rick Rubin and Rice himself. It is a selection of songs, which Rice says are "sung straight into the metaphorical mirror." Intimate, frank and revitalized by making music again, My Favourite Faded Fantasy is a record that accepts one's faults but also begins, perhaps, to appreciate one's ability to grow up. The recording process began in Los Angeles and finished up with a cast of friends and local musicians against the stunning backdrop of Reykjavik, Iceland.
>Joe Robinson
– Gemini 1 CDEP (Joe's Garage)
New EP from the Australian-born guitarist. A largely self-taught musician from Temagog, NSW, Joe is best known for his virtuoso guitar abilities and for winning the 2008 season of

"with The Inevitable End we've moved into a darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very personal, sincere and conclusive," says RöykSvein.
>Secret Chiefs 3/Ishraqiyun
– Perichoresis CD (Mimicry)
Split release from alt-instrumental group Secret Chiefs 3 and their alter ego Ishraqiyum. Ishraqiyun has been characterized as the "neo-Pythagorean electro-folk" side of Secret Chiefs 3.

– Kenny Dennis III CD/2xLP (Joyful Noise)
New album from Serengeti - Chicago rapper and Sisyphus band-member (with Sufjan Stevens and Son Lux).
Kenny Dennis III continues the saga of 'Geti's blue-collar character, featuring sizable contributions from Anders Holm of Workaholics. This is the second Kenny Dennis LP, and the third installment of Serengeti's foray into the guise of Kenny Dennis. It furthers Serengeti's hilarious, absurdist, and subtly humane saga of a Chicago-born man with a Mike Ditka mustache, whose lovable delusions and diehard loyalty fall somewhere between Homer Simpson and a Bill Swerski Superfan. (Vinyl version pressed on neon splatter wax.)
>Bobby Shmurda
– Shmurda She Wrote CDEP (Epic)
New EP from the rap sensation.

>Son Little
– Things I Forgot CDEP (Anti)
Things I Forgot opens with "The River," a seductive and ominous reconstruction of American blues infused with elements of hip-hop. Next up is "Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches" which Little describes as "Wu-Tang sea shanty with the Beatles on background vocals." The slinky guitar groove of "Cross My Heart" bears haunting witness to departed friends, while "Joy" re-invents the cathartic soul ballad and delivers conclusive proof of Little's vocal power. "Alice" is propelled by distorted guitar and raw simple drumming, offering an inventive and captivating mix of garage punk and psychedelic soul.
– Limp. Gasp. Collapse. CD/LP (Prosthetic)
Short Sharp Shock aka SSS live up their name, making snappy, quality thrash with a strong hardcore/crossover vibe.

Sixth studio album by German rock band – Available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe two-CD edition includes four bonus tracks plus an interview with the band.

>Torn Hawk
– Let's Cry And Do Pushups At The Same Time CD (Mexican Summer)
It's difficult to neatly categorize Luke Wyatt's genre-refracting productions. The nuts and bolts are built from live guitar, drum machines, junky synths, and layers of samples which are smeared into a cohesive whole. His guitar moves between the meditations of Manuel Gottsching, the jangle-grid of The Chameleons, and the saturation of Medicine. Throw in the melodrama of a sax on a Don Henley hit, and you get a better idea of his playfully sincere sensibility. Vinyl version due November 24.

– Random Cosmic Violence CD/LP (Relapse)
"In a year that has already delivered amazing new records from Yob, Pallbearer, Triptykon, Thou, Eyehategod, and Indian (among others), it's pretty close to impossible to show up in mid-November with an album of sludge/funeral doom and make any sort of impact. But Random Cosmic Violence — the sophomore LP from Portland, OR's Usnea — arrives with the force of an asteroid, and leaves behind a f**king crater." -- Stereogum

>Various Artists
– Ten Cities CD (Soundway)
Berlin, Bristol, Cairo, Johannesburg, Kyiv, Lagos, Lisbon, Luanda, Nairobi, Naples. 50 electronic music producers and instrumentalists from these ten cities were invited to collaborate in studios over the course of more than six months. As a result hip-hop from the squats of Naples, dubstep and bass from Bristol and Lisbon, experimental techno from Berlin and jazz-tinged deep-house from Kiev are thrust upon the pumping kuduro of Luanda, the free- thinking crackled electronica of Cairo, the Afro-jazz of Lagos and Johannesburg, and the Sheng street slang of Kenyan hip-hop and rap. A selection of the results of these cross-continental experiments can be heard on this record.

– Rhubarb Rhubarb CD/LP (Heavenly/PIAS America)
"If there's a line to be drawn between T-Rex and Bowie, The Beatles and The Kinks – that isn't a couple of decades in time, then it's possible to continue it right through to
Rhubarb Rhubarb. A delightfully fun record." -- DIY
>Wildbirds & Peacedrums
– Rhythm CD (Leaf)
Wildbirds & Peacedrums return with their first record in four years; lean, hungry and defiant.

>The World Inferno Friendship Society
– This Packed Funeral CD/LP (Alternative Tentacles)
New album from the veteran punk rock cabaret ensemble. Equal parts punk, soul, klezmer and jazz, replete with horns, piano, guitar and a lot of boys and girls with very sharp teeth, the Brooklyn-based group's must-see stage charisma rivals Slim Cessna's Auto Club. The ensemble has over 40 members, including a guy from Dexys Midnight Runners who's in Black 47 now. Only about seven to thirteen show up at any given time due to parole restrictions, so one never can tell how crowded the dressing room is going to be.

DVDs + Blu-ray:
>The Doors
- Feast Of Friends DVD/Blu-ray (Eagle Vision)
Filmed in 1968,
Feast Of Friends was the first and only film produced about The Doors by The Doors. It offers a cinematic look at The Doors on the road during their summer ‘68 tour. While never truly completed, the film provides a stylistic approach in true sixties cinema verite style. Concert performances are intercut with fly-on-the-wall footage of the group in their natural habitat, sometimes playful, sensitive, chaotic and touching.

This Week's Vinyl Exclusives:
>Cannonball Adderly Sextet
– In New York: Recorded Live At The Village Vanguard [Reissue/1962] LP (Concord Music Group)
An exceedingly excellent live date from the legendary Village Vanguard, In New York captures the recording debut of the Adderley Sextet and finds Cannonball gliding through seven tunes with swinging ease on alto saxophone. Joined by brother Nat on cornet, and the versatile Yusef Lateef on tenor, flute, and oboe, Cannonball and his crew turn in what All About Jazz calls "perhaps the single most indispensable recording by the Adderley Brothers."

– NATO-Uniformen 2xLP (Hospital Productions)
This gatefold double LP set is a redacted version of Alberich's indomitable, spirit-crushing opus,
NATO-Uniformen, cut from 30 tracks in the original eight-cassette box (limited to 50 copies) to 19 tracks on this version, edited in 2014 for the Trans Industrial Assembly in NYC. Originally deployed in 2010, its bombed-out luster has become a firm favorite of everyone from Blackest Ever Black's Kiran Sande to Endangered Species' Vereker. Between the bludgeoned doom techno of "Skysweeper," the shell-strewn darkwave scenes of "Man Is Ready" and the Carpenter-esque adrenalizer, "Immortality Is No Consolation for Death," Alberich finds a very specific line through heavy electronics, synth zones, and dread techno, and holds it to the last with a shell-shocked, eviscerated aesthetic most unlike any other.
>Jorn Aleskjaer
- I'm So Glad I Spent This Day With You LP (Sounds Familyre)
Aleskjaer's musical scope stretches from Todd Rundgren-like pop-soul to Beach Boys '70s harmony escapades, often Dennis Wilson-esque songs and performances.

>Andersen/Pleym Group
- Have Your Own Feeling, Have Your Own Way [Reissue/1971] 2xLP (Mayfair Music)
Official reissue of rare Norwegian private press psych LP.

>Iggy Azalea
– The New Classic 2xLP (Def-Jam)
Released earlier this year on CD – now available on vinyl. Debut album by the Australian rapper. Azalea would be the first to admit that she's something of an outsider in the world of rap. As a white girl from rural Australia, raised in the small New South Wales town of Mullumbimby (population: 3,000), how could she not be? It's appropriate that she's risen to the status of one of the most promising new MCs in an era when hip-hop has never been more open to artists from a diversity of backgrounds.

– Heir 7"+MP3 (Western Vinyl)
Two new songs on color vinyl. "Heir I" starts things off slowly with a Wurlitzer's somber tremolo and some gently propulsive electric bass, soon joined by vibes and a soaring violin melody.

Fourth and final installment in the series includes a slipcase intended to house all four LPs in
The Chronicle. Makes use of the raw, unsettling drone elements that are their trademark.
– Cannibal LP (Primary Information)
A disorienting tour de force of the lower forms of music. Guided by a collective deftness for derailment, Destroy All Monster's Cary Loren, Cameron Jamie, and the Belgian minister of exploitation Dennis Tyfus hallucinate fifteen tracks of erratic electronics, deranged and incantatory narration, harmonica, jaw harp, dollar-bin records, found poetry, vocal sound techniques, etc. Silkscreened jacket.

>Christina Carter
– Masque Feminine [2008] LP+MP3 (Root Strata)
Vinyl reissue of 2008 album originally released as a CDR on Many Breaths. The co-founder of Charalambides has concentrated her most recent work on exploring extended improvisational guitar, with and without song-medley structures.

>Rhys Chatham
– Reve Parisien LP (Primary Information)
Four new compositions performed live at Jacob Kassay's 2010 exhibition at Art: Concept in Paris, loosely functioning as an audio catalogue and soundtrack to the exhibition. Rhys Chatham abandoned the trumpet style he developed in the '90s for a non-distorted, less effects-driven sound that complements his minimalist compositions and free jazz training. Gatefold jacket with die-cut cover.

>The Chicago Triangle
– Emergence LP (Permanent)
Previously unknown, Acid-Archives worthy, private press, basement hardrock/prog from mid-‘70s Chicago. "The Chicago Triangle is a flock of the rarest birds: a Latino hard rock quartet, emerging from Chicago's near-north side, and also harboring an arcane interest in the mysticism of the triangle. Although it was released in 1977, it could have been 1969, or 1989, or 2015… in any decade, it was destined for deepest obscurity, and is now of most profound interest." -- Rob Sevier, Numero Group

– IV.I.VIII LP (The Flenser)
New release from the notorious Indianapolis-based blackened doom metal band. Far more complex and lacerating than anything the band has attempted thus far,
IV.I.VIII offers six tracks of pure, blackened, unholy doom metal terror that will serve as the soundtrack to the inevitable dark era soon to befall this feeble mortal coil. CD version due next week, November 18.
>Co La
– Hegemony Of Delete LP (Primary Information)
Electronic music in dialogue with the real rhythms of work and leisure by Baltimore-based Matt Papich, whose six songs here are structurally digressive, rhythmically protean, and littered with distorting spatial impressions and musical non-sequiturs (the interjection of anonymous voices, ambient noise, dryly evocative samples, etc.), all of which contribute to
Hegemony Of Delete's sense of artifice. Yet the music never gets carried away with itself, mysteriously articulating its own obscure, fleeting circumstances, even as it shapes them—a delicately maintained feedback circuit, a relaxed conversation with a synthetic atmosphere.
>Color Morale
– Hold On Pain Ends LP (Fearless)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The Color Morale is a metalcore band from Rockford, Illinois.

>Consumer Electronics
– Estuary English 2x12"+CD (Dirter Promotions)

Contact is a new band featuring A.E. Paterra of Zombi and Majeure, and acclaimed film composer Paul Lawler.

– Brick Factory [Reissue/1994] LP+MP3 (Happy Happy Birthday To Me)
20th anniversary reissue with download including 21 bonus songs. Crayon took the burgeoning sound of twee pop and added punk elements, sounding something like a cross between UK indiepop bands like the Pastels and more abrasive American bands like Unwound.

>Patrick Cowley & Jorge Socarras
– Catholic LP (Dark Entries)
Vinyl issue of this lost opus of disco pioneer Patrick Cowley and Indoor Life vocalist Jorge Socarras, arranged and recorded by Cowley in his home studio, 1975-1979.

– Soft Stab LP (Dragnet)
Dreamsalon is a Seattle supergroup trio who began in 2012, rising from the ashes of the band Evening Meetings. Falling somewhere between post-garage and post-punk, they bring to mind bands like The Fall channeled through Pere Ubu and The Gun Club.

A major influence on the Washington DC hardcore and emo scene, from Bob "Derwood" Andrews and Mark Laff (Generation X). Available on HQ-200gm black and 150gm opaque red vinyl.

Back To Oblivion is there first new album in five years.
>Flesh Lights
– Free Yourself LP (12xU)
Guitarist/vocalist Max Vandever and cousin Elissa Ussery (drums/vocals) migrated from San Antonio and began their assault on Austin's live music dumps in 2008 playing as a duo under ill-advised names including but not limited to Candle Shop & The Psychic Reader, Dead Leger, and Carousel Images. After poaching bassist/vocalist Jeremy Steen from an early lineup of The Gospel Trugh, the newly dubbed Flesh Lights, the trio quickly became a fixture on whatever you-got-songs-in-my-punk/you-got-punk-in-my-songs circuit that began to coalesce around the alleged live music capital.

– Love [Reissue/2009] LP (Flipper)
Flipper – Fight (Live) [Reissue/2009] LP (Flipper)
Limited represses of two of the punk band's 2009 releases, now available on white vinyl and on clear vinyl, respectively.

>Yonatan Gat
– Iberian Passage LP (Joyful Noise)
Solo album from Monotonix guitarist. Inspired by African ensembles such as Orchestra Baobab, and the early work of Brazilian psychedelic experimentalists Os Mutantes, Gat blends his punk influences with the wild improvisational spirit of Miles Davis and Charles Mingus. White vinyl.

– Dark Sabbath: Symbols Of Evil LP (Hausu Mountain)
Multi-instrumental sessions of overwhelming synth drone and feedback-soaked noise animated by the howling voices of live trumpet performances.
Dark Sabbath pushes Grasshopper's uncompromising live assault to new heights of doom-worshipping heaviness and tonal abstraction. Their unique strain of electro-acoustic performance is ripped to shreds in a tug-of-war between the contemporary classical, DIY noise, and free-jazz traditions.
– Rookie LP (Thrill Me)
Hideout's inception began on the road. Made up of Gabriel Rodriguez (guitar/vocals) and Cory Stier (drums), the duo is longtime friends from San Diego who grew up playing in bands both together and separately. Now touring members of Cults and living on different coasts, Cory and Gabe took advantage of time on tour by writing music. Reminiscent of early Bowie,
Rookie is complete with gritty guitar loops and ethereal vocals singing tales of abduction and space travels.
– Waves LP+MP3 (Trouble In Mind)
Holögrama is the recording project of Fancisco Borja, an electronic musician from Granade, Spain. Borja performs and records the majority of everything himself, using synths, drum machines and whatever odds and ends he can scrape together to orchestrate Holögrama 's sound. Think Rev & Vega, but with a more positive, hopeful vibe tinged with a whisper of melancholy.

>John Lee Hooker
– Boogie Chillun [Reissue/1972] 2xLP (Fantasy)
Recorded live in November 1962 in San Francisco,
Boogie Chillun features Hooker performing solo in a laid-back, 'unplugged' mode. Employing a mixture of acoustic and electric sounds, Hooker treats the crowd to such classics as the titular "Boogie Chillun" and "Dimples" (retitled as "I Like to See You Walk") in an intimate setting.
>Shin Joong Hyun
- Beautiful Rivers And Mountains: The Psychedelic Rock Sound Of South Korea's Shin Joong Hyun 1958-1974 2xLP (Light In The Attic)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Inspired by jazz, soul, and traditional Korean music, Shin Joong Hyun started his career in the mid-1950s, performing for US troops stationed locally after the Korean War armistice of 1953. While his English language skills were limited, the young player had no trouble communicating through his trusty electric guitar, but Shin was no mere 6-string slinger for hire, he was able to communicate something far beyond your average professional musician.
Beautiful Rivers And Mountains is the first ever anthology outside Korea of legendary guitarist, arranger, songwriter and producer of mind-altering experimental pop, acid-folk, and extended psych funk jams. A musical trip existing somewhere between Motown, Hendrix, and the Velvet Underground.
– Unmoored By The Wind LP (New Images)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. New release from folk guitarist and songwriter Kayla Cohen aka Itasca. At once soft-spoken and virtuosic, Cohen's mesmerizing finger-picking lays gauzy groundwork for vocal work More than ever before, though, Cohen's confident singing is laid bare; vocals ride on top of arrangements, taking their rightful place in the forefront.

>Keith Jarrett/Charlie Haden
– Last Dance 2xLP (ECM)
Released late last spring on CD – now available on vinyl. Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden broaden the scope of their duo project to showcase jazz classics like Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight" and Bud Powell's spritely "Dance Of The Infidels." Love songs, however, are to the fore in this selection, with tender versions of "My Old Flame," "My Ship," "It Might As Well Be Spring," "Everything Happens To Me," and "Every Time We Say Goodbye" as well as alternate takes of "Where Can I Go Without You" and "Goodbye," every bit as touching as the Jasmine renditions. HQ-180gm.

– 7 LP (Nod And Smile)

>Bruce Langhorn
– Hired Hand [Reissue/1971] LP (Scissor Tail)
Classic 1971 Peter Fonda film soundtrack from Dylan sideman and folk scene impresario Bruce Langhorn. It is a beautifully melancholy score performed with guitars, tonal effects, fiddle, banjo, sitar, and more that evokes high plains drifting, lonesome cowpokes. "It's The West seen as Purgatory, its characters endlessly moving on, but Langhorne conjures beauty from the pain." -- The Wire

>Daniel Lanois
– Flesh And Machine LP (Anti)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.

>Barbara Lynn
– Here Is Barbara [Reissue/1968] LP (Light In The Attic)
To be a woman singing your own blues and soul songs in 1960s Texas was a rare thing. To do so while brandishing a left-handed Stratocaster and bashing out hard-edged licks was even rarer. HQ-180gm LP housed in an expanded deluxe Stoughton gatefold tip-on jacket.

>Martial Canterel
– Gyors, Lassù LP (Dais)
Gyors, Lassù marks an important milestone in the evolution of Martial Canterel's music, progressing far beyond the cages of "minimal synth" and embracing the noisier qualities of its sound with a renewed urgency, a kind of thickness embodied in multiple layers using only eurorack, Serge and Roland 100 modular systems at his disposal and flushing out the entire session in one take.

– Phantom Pop LP (Old Friends)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. If the effervescent modern pop band Wild Party has a defining characteristic, its passion. On their debut album,
Phantom Pop, sugary synths buzz around kicky rock guitars and upbeat rhythms, taking the form of summery power-pop (''Take My Advice,'' the keyboard-sprinkled ''Outright''), breezy soul-rock (''Chasin' Honey,'' ''When I Get Older'') and high-stepping indie-pop (''Violet''). Bands such as The Killers, The Strokes, Phoenix and The Format are certainly touchstones, but impressively for a band on their first release, the San Antonio, TX quartet have made it their mission to carve out a path of their own.
>Jonathan Wilson
– Slide By LP (Downtown)
>Witch Mountain
– Mobile Of Angels LP (Mountastic)
Witch Mountain are probably Portland, Oregon's oldest currently active metal band; they date back to 1997, formed by guitarist Rob Wrong and drummer Nathan Carson, at a time when Portland's heavy music scene was practically non-existent.
released 03 NOVEMBER 2014
>Joshua Abrams – Natural Information CD (Eremite)
Joshua Abrams – Represencing CD (Eremite)
Natural Information is another fascinating entry in a solo discography of recordings that gather aesthetic input from all over the map into vivid personal statements. At the heart of the album is the guimbri, a three-stringed animal hide bass traditionally used by the Gnawa of North Africa in healing ceremonies. For Represencing, recorded at home in Chicago in 2011, Abrams again organizes small group statements around the resonant grooves of the North African ceremonial instrument with a unique a broadly assimilative compositional voice.
>A Certain Ratio
– Sextet [Reissue/1982] 2xCD/2xLP (Factory Benelux)
Self-produced at Revolution Studio,
Sextet saw the original Ratio quintet of Donald Johnson, Jeremy Kerr, Martin Moscrop, Simon Topping and Peter Terrell joined by co-vocalist Martha Tili Tilson. Written and recorded following a transformative sojourn in New York in late 1980, the album reflects Latin, samba and even jazz influences, while still retaining Ratio's signature brittle funk textures, heard in full effect on Lucinda, Gum and trancelike floor filler Knife Slits Water.
Newly remastered and expanded with Peel Session tracks from 1981-82.

>Anti-Nowhere League
– We Are… The League …Uncut CD (Cleopatra)
Animal and the boys return with brand new and rowdy, re-recordings of The League's classic debut LP plus bonus tracks.

– Xen CD/LP (Mute)
Arca is the incarnation of Alejandro Ghersi, a 24-year old Venezuelan producer and musician. Having previously released EPs, mixtapes, and produced for the likes of FKA Twigs, Bjork, and Kanye West, Arca's music is uniquely his own.
Xen is a very personal record for Arca, with the underlying concept revolving around gender and sexuality. However, gender isn't the defining concept but rather a vessel with which to expose Arca's vulnerability.
>Lee Bannon
– Main/Flex CD (Chillectro)
Merges hip-hop, EDM, and drum ‘n' bass alongside an A-list of collaborators including Hak of Ratking and Charlie Benante of Anthrax.

– Dois CD/LP (Soundway)
Strands of Afro-house, Kuduro, Benga, Semba, samples from old Angolan movies and Afrobeat tracks, African MCs and musicians from all over the world are all deftly mixed together by Pedro Coquenao. Inspired by the multicultural hotbed of his home city of Lisbon and trips to Nairobi and Luanda,
Dois was predominately produced in his own garage-studio over a two-year period. Much of the remix and sampling spirit from the first record remains but Dois also features live instrumentation along with a host of different guests.
>Big Star
– Live In Memphis CD/2xLP+MP3 (Omnivore)
Big Star's only known professionally recorded show in its entirety. Contains Big Star classics like "Thank You Friends," "September Gurls," and "The Ballad Of El Goodo," Chris Bell's "I Am The Cosmos," and covers of T.Rex, The Kinks, Todd Rundgren and more, performed by Big Star: Alex Chilton, Jody Stephens, and Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow from The Posies. First 1,000 copies on vinyl pressed on red wax. Also available on stand-alone DVD.

>Black Milk
– If There's A Hell Below CD (Computer Ugly)
"Black Milk is a paradoxical artist, one defined by both wild reinvention and stasis. To this point, every other Black Milk album is a corrective, somehow a refutation of the album that came before it. He keeps pressing reset and then playing the game the same:
Tronic was his vaunted abandonment of vinyl fetishism for synthesizers; Album Of The Year his embrace of live-band instrumentation; No Poison, No Paradise his nightmare-filled stab at creating a '70s soul epic. But put them on shuffle and the delineations disappear—they all sound like Black Milk tracks. On If There's A Hell Below, for the first time, he consciously takes a sonic mulligan, trading in the same murky Castlevania synth-lines, wrecking-ball drums and dark-night-of-the-soul wails as its predecessor." -- Pitchfork
>The Bloodhounds
– Let Loose CD/LP (Alive)
The Bloodhounds play blues/R&B rock & roll with a fresh, edgy, almost punk edge, and add a hint of a Latin groove to the mix. Though founded on an electric sound they also dig the old jug band style of playing. Picking up cheap acoustic guitars, turning ordinary household items into instruments and constructing a traditional washtub-broomstick bass, they often busk in the streets of downtown Los Angeles to the delight of large crowds.

>Dean Blunt
– Black Metal CD/LP (Rough Trade)
Blunt's newest odyssey,
Black Metal, rides this tension between critical detachment and mainlined human feeling, and in fact he climbs ever-steeper theoretical heights just as his emotionally stark songs become, at times, startlingly intimate.
>Captain Beefheart
– Full Moon In Cowtown: Live 1974 Radio Broadcast CD/LP (Chrome Dreams)
By the time of this April 1974 broadcast, Captain Beefheart - and the 29th incarnation in a long line of ever-mutating Magic Bands - had reverted to more traditionally structured compositions. The touring band included some highly revered players including reedsman Del Simmons, guitarists Dean Smith and Fuzzy Fuscaldo, bassist Paul Uhrig, and drummer Ty Grimes. Caught live in Kansas City, Beefheart was amidst an extensive US tour promoting his eighth album,
Unconditionally Guaranteed.
>Cavalera Conspiracy
– Pandemonium CD/LP (Napalm)
The Cavalera brothers Max and Igor delude nobody when it comes to determination and stubbornness. In the 1990s the Brazilians brought up some of the most uncompromising death/thrash metal records as Sepultura. Their latest record
Pandemonium is no exception: frontman Max Cavalera rushes with bellow of rage into the fray, lets his brother drum coarsest grooves and puts his finger into the open wound. CD version is available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe adds two bonus tracks and is packaged in a digipak.
– September 13th 1969 CD (Cleopatra)
Recorded live at the Toronto Rock N Roll Revival, this outstanding concert performance finds Chicago at the top of their game, ripping through "25 Or 6 To 4," "I'm A Man" and more.

>The Chills
– BBC Sessions CD/LP (Fire)
Complete BBC John Peel Sessions from the New Zealand alt-pop legends, recorded in 1985, 1987 and 1988.

– Clark CD/2xLP+MP3 (Warp)
Chris Clark follows up 2012's
Iradelphic with his new self-titled full-length release. Clark has taken the techno/rave direction of his Phosphor live show and his recent Superscope'12" and produced an astounding album.
>Cockney Rejects
– Too Tough To Die: 35 Years Undefeated 2xCD (Come See Me)
Features some of the Cockney Rejects greatest hits and tracks recorded throughout their illustrious career and collects them on this double-disc digipak set. Solid gold punk rock & roll.

>Cooly G
– Wait ‘Til Night CD/LP (Hyperdub)
Cooly G returns with an album of sensitive, lo-fi bedroom music, it's lyrics sketching dreamy scenarios of seduction lust and sex. The moody South London house of her debut album
Playing Me and her DJ sets has given way to a near-horizontal, sometimes melancholy and highly original take on R&B. The tracks swing effortlessly with no-fuss musical arrangements that are filtered through reggae sound system culture and US R&B in equal amounts, with a slight hint of dark synthpop wound throughout.
>AJ Davila y Terror Amor
– Beibi CD/Cassette (Burger)
New release stacked with garage punk blasts outta Puerto Rico from members of Davila 666.

>Davila 666
– Pocos Años, Muchos Daños CD/Cassette (Burger)
"Known for their ripping live shows, Davila 666 is proof that you don't have to understand a lyric to feel the f*cking buzz. Garage psych compadres south of the border, it's a feat not to bang your head along to their unique voice. This one's packed with all their crowd favorites, and it's a perfect starting point for the unfamiliar. Rarely do I recommend a ‘greatest hits' comp, but this one's an exception." – Sly Vinyl

– La Isla Bonita CD/LP+MP3 (Polyvinyl)
"Veteran Bay Area spaz-poppers Deerhoof recorded their new album
La Isla Bonita live in a garage over one week. God Mode label head Nick Sylvester (who is, full disclosure, my friend) recorded it, and it has a bit more melody and a bit less berserk skronk pyrotechnics than a lot of other Deerhoof records. But this is still very much a Deerhoof album, and the past decade and a half of this band has probably already let you know whether this is something you need in your life" – Stereogum. (Limited initial vinyl copies pressed on gray wax.)
>Deptford Goth
– Songs CD/LP (PIAS America)
After the groundswell of adoration for his album debut
Life After Defo and the live shows that followed, Deptford Goth returns this Autumn with Songs, his second record of intensely slow-burning gems. Where the former was more affiliated with those seamless blenders of dreamy synth-pop, R&B and soul, Songs adds elements of singer-songwriter tradition to his irresistibly yearning electronica.
>Ani DiFranco
– Allergic To Water CD (Righteous Babe)
Ani's new album features some of the most subtle music to date wrapped up in lovely white embossed packaging. Throughout the record, DiFranco, her band and a few music guests, create melodies that are lilting and funky, imaginative and personal: so personal that she produced and mixed the record all on her own. Vibes, tones and rhythms constantly change while her band draws on its own expansive palette. Vinyl version due November 18.

>The Doobie Brothers
– Southbound CD (Sony Nashville/Arista)
Some of country's biggest stars join The Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald for all-new recordings of the band's classic hits. Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Casey James, Charlie Worsham, Chris Young, Jerrod Niemann, Johnnyswim's Amanda Sudano Ramirez, Love And Theft, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, Tyler Farr, and Zac Brown Band make up the roster of artists choosing their favorite Doobie songs to record with the band, with selected tracks featuring special instrumental contributions from Hunter Hayes and Vince Gill.

>Bob Dylan And The Band
– The Basement Tapes Raw: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 2xCD/6xCD (Sony Legacy)
Compiled from meticulously restored original tapes many found only recently - this historic six-disc set is the definitive chronicle of the artist's legendary 1967 recording sessions with members of his touring ensemble who would later achieve their own fame as The Band.
The Basement Tapes Complete brings together, for the first time ever, every salvageable recording from the tapes including recently discovered early gems recorded in the "Red Room" of Dylan's home in upstate New York. Garth Hudson worked closely with Canadian music archivist and producer Jan Haust to restore the deteriorating tapes to pristine sound, with much of this music preserved digitally for the first time. Double-disc version features highlights from the set. Vinyl version due November 24.
>Ronnie Fauss
– Built To Break CD/LP (New West/Normal Town)
Fauss, who was described in Vanity Fair as "a cross between Steve Earle and Gram Parsons," recorded the eleven new songs over five months in almost as many cities: Colleyville, Nashville, Dallas and Chicago. The record finds Fauss trading verses with Old 97s frontman Rhett Miller on "Eighteen Wheels," a rolling barroom ode to long-distance trucking that simultaneously pays tribute to Fauss' myriad influences: Hank, Waylon, Willie, Cash, Dylan and Emmylou. The centerpiece may be Fauss' honest and austere rendition of the beautiful 2013 Phosphorescent track "Song For Zula."

– Moments Of Matter CD/LP (Exit Stencil)
Though heavily rooted in DIY culture, Filmstrip is a band whose sound has evolved well past their simple punk rock origins. Imagine if the Meat Puppets (another brother band) circa 1985 teamed up with the indie-psych-folk stylings of Pink Mountaintops, and was informed by an upbringing heavily steeped in the Maximumrocknroll ethos.

>Fripp & Eno
– Live In Paris 28.05.1975 3xCD (Discipline Global Music)
The subject of many poor quality bootlegs, this concert - one of only a handful undertaken by Fripp & Eno - is routinely described as legendary. Hearing the tapes in fully restored audio quality, it's easy to understand why it attracts such reverence now and perhaps, why the shows attracted such hostility then. No Roxy Music hits, No King Crimson riffs, just a duo sitting in near darkness with a reel-to-reel tape recorder, improvising over the pre-recorded loops with a filmed background projection. Replace the reel-to-reel machine with a couple of laptops/iPads/sequencers and the core of much current live performance from electronica to hip-hop was there some thirty years in advance. At the time, audiences responded to such a glimpse of the future with booing, walkouts and general confusion.

>Guano Padano
– Americana CD (Ipecac)
New album from the Italian/western trio Guano Padano take their spaghetti western/jazz/swing tunes to a new level. Featuring contributions from Joey from Calexico and author Dan Fante
Guano Padano is Alessandro Asso Stefana, Zeno De Rossi and Danilo Gallo. Their works have been compared to the greats like Fellini, Leona, Coppola and more.

>Guns N' Roses
– Appetite For Democracy: Live At The Hard Rock Casino – Las Vegas 2xCD+Blu-ray+T-shirt (Interscope)
They were one of the biggest bands in the world in the late '80s and pre-grunge early '90s, but Guns N' Roses haven't given fan's a live concert film since that heyday. These brand-new performances include the hits and key cuts from all their albums plus some killer covers. The Blu-Ray includes the concert in 2D and 3D.

>Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers
– Love Whip Blues CD (Vizz Tone)
Erin learned to play delta blues guitar at an early age from her father, Maryland area bluesman Neil Harpe. Erin's travels brought her an appreciation of world music styles, particularly Afro-beat and reggae. Landing in Boston, she did solo blues gigs, simultaneously started a electro-funk dance band called Lovewhip, and self-released a couple of acoustic blues CDs. A few years ago, Erin formed the Delta Swingers, a deep blues-based group that was also a dance band with a wealth of influences.

>Calvin Harris
– Motion CD (Sony)
New album from the best-selling DJ, producer and artist.

Motion features the hit singles ''Summer'' and ''Blame'' (featuring John Newman) plus collaborations with Gwen Stefani, Ellie Goulding, Big Sean, Haim, Alesso, Hurts, R3hab and others.
>High Ends
– Super Class CD (Dine Alone)
Super Class combines the upbeat pop-rock catchiness that Innes is known for with esoteric synth textures. It was recorded with producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, The New Pornographers) at his Vancouver Island facility. During the sessions, Gold & Youth drummer Jeff Mitchelmore handled percussion, meticulously interweaving vintage drum machine programming with live playing. Louise Burns and New Pornographers member Kathryn Calder contributed backing vocals, while Ladyhawk's Darcy Hancock laid down guitar.
– Blurred CD/2xLP+CD (!K7)
"Give a quick listen to
Blurred, the debut album from Michael ‘Huxley' Dodman, and you might think the London producer is aiming to break out of the clubs, perhaps yearning for a fuller taste of success he had with the dance-floor soul of 2013's Let It Go. Blurred brims with such pop pleasures—shimmering melodies hover over bass-propelled rhythms throughout—and if it's worked so well for acts like Disclosure, why not for Dodman?" – Resident Advisor
– Oceanic [Reissue/2002] CD (Ipecac)
The classic release from Isis, originally released in 2002, remastered with new artwork.

>Jóhann Jóhannsson
– The Theory Of Everything [OST] CD (Backlot Music)
Orignal score to the 2014 motion picture by Icelandic composer/producer Johann Johannsson.
The Theory Of Everything is a new British film directed by James Marsh and penned by Anthony McCarten. The film was inspired by the memoir Travelling To Infinity: My Life With Stephen by Jane Hawking, which deals with her relationship with her ex-husband theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and his success in physics.
>King Crimson
– Starless 23xCD+2xDVD-Audio+2xBlu-ray (Discipline Global Music)
Limited to a single pressing run,
Starless offers an in-depth overview of King Crimson's celebrated mid-1970's live line-up at its most exploratory. Few bands have offered as much variety in material from night to night, and King Crimson's propensity for improvisation and fondness for playing its newest material - often unreleased on record at the time of performance - is legendary.
>Mark Kozelek
– Sings Christmas Carols CD (Caldo Verde)
Solo acoustic Christmas songs from our favorite grump.

>Larkin Poe
– Kin CD (RH Music)
Debut album from Atlanta-based sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell.

>Liv Kristine
– Vervain CD (Napalm)
Liv Kristine's fifth overall solo album unfolds as a dark rock masterpiece assembling terrific melodies, enthralling song structures and a world class voice. Haunting tunes, imaginative instrumentation and extraordinary creativity unite into the finest piece of music art eternalized in a perfect sound production.

>Les Sins
– Michael CD/LP (Company)
Michael is the debut full-length from Les Sins, the dance project of Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick. Inspired by cartoon and movie soundtracks, the largely instrumental album explores classic dance and pop music traditions. Catchy, repetitive vocal hooks gel with beats and synth work influenced by house, techno, French electronic, and ‘90s hip-hop production. Bundick made the album over two years and recorded everything in his home studio. Michael follows a 12" on Carpark Records and two singles for Jialong. The LP is the first release on Company Records, a partnership between Chaz and Carpark.
>Lia Mice
– I Love You CD/LP (Old Flame)
Lia Mice is the experimental pop project of Eleanor C Mice. After spending her teens touring Australia in punk and soul groups she lurked the Brooklyn noise scene for half a decade, playing anywhere from DIY house parties to Manhattan's Museum of Arts and Design. Inspired by a tour of Tokyo where she performed in a temple to monks, Lia Mice's 2012 debut LP
Happy New Year (originally released under the moniker Happy New Year) hid it's dark pop melodies in a cinematic landscapes of chimes, bells and vintage synths delivered at such hypnotically slow tempos that Time Out Tokyo coined the genre ‘narcoleptic pop' in her honor. Lia Mice's second solo album, and first experiment in danceable tempos, I Love You was inspired by new music uncovered during in her first year living in France: in the grooves of yé-yé singles; on the dance floors of converted boat-venues; in the theme songs of classic French cinema.
>Theophilus London
– Vibes CD (WB)
New album from the Trinidad born and Brooklyn raised New Yorker.
London was executive produced by Kanye West, art design by Virgil Abloh (Donda) and photography by Karl Lagerfeld. The album features appearances by Kanye West, Leon Ware, Devonte Hynes and more.
– Scare Force One CD (AFM)
Take the shock rock artists of the ‘70s like Alice Cooper and bring it to the next level. That's exactly what Lordi do since their very beginning with catchy hard rock hymns with strong hooks and infectious melodies.

>Noberto Lobo
– Fornalha CD/LP+7"+MP3 (Three Four)
Norberto Lobo is a mind-bending musician, modulating psychedelic ideas to the guitar.
Fornalha moves through the listening spaces like a New Orleans processional gathering and dropping sounds, as it winds through different chambers. Bowed guitars that sound more like bright cellos, a prepared guitar that sounds like a dry plastic lute and some sweet vocal oohing reminiscent of Brian Eno's fried-orchestral singing in Gavin Bryars' ensemble.
>Major League
– There's Nothing Wrong With Me CD/LP+MP3 (No Sleep)
Sophomore release from New Jersey pop-punk band. Vinyl version pressed on transparent blue wax.

>Mariache El Bronx
– Mariache El Bronx III CD/LP (ATO)
The third release by this great punk/Latin/mariachi band. Born out of a desire to challenge themselves musically, Mariachi El Bronx is the alter ego of Los Angeles punk band the Bronx. Conceived in 2006, the idea came about when the Bronx were asked to play an acoustic set and, rather than simply pare down their sound, they took their music in a whole new direction, moving away from hardcore and exploring Latin sounds. (Initial vinyl copies pressed on day-glo orange wax.)

>Paul McCartney & Wings
– Venus And Mars [Reissue/1975] 2xCD/2xCD+DVD/2xLP (Hear Music)

>Memphis Dawls
– Rooted To The Bone CD (Madjack)
In recent years, Memphis Dawls have served at the vanguard of a burgeoning Memphis folk scene. The core group is made up of three veteran musicians who have played with several successful local bands. Brought together by their similar tastes in melody and style, and perhaps with a slight nod from fate, Holly Cole (guitars, vocals), Jana Misener (cello, vocals), and Krista Wroten (viola, mandolin, accordion, vocals) deliver hauntingly romantic and lyrical folk music with a modern flair.

>Bette Midler
– It's The Girls CD (WB)
Midler covers a jaunty and celebratory selection of some of the greatest harmonies originally performed by girl groups such as The Ronettes, The Boswell Sisters, The Andrew Sisters, The Chiffons as well as Motown acts like Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, and The Marvelettes, among others.

>Thelonious Monk
- Round Midnight: Complete Blue Note Singles 1947-52 2xCD (Blue Note)
This double-disc set features all of Thelonious Monk's Blue Note recordings in their original 78 RPM sequence of release for the first time in more than 60 years. Thelonious Monk's first recordings in the late 1940s were for Blue Note Records and they signaled a new kind of Blue Note as the label was evolving from an outlet for boogie woogie and old time jazz into a flag-waver for hard bop. These recordings, which include the first version of Monk's classic composition, "'Round Midnight" (originally known as "'Round About Midnight"), were released on a series of fifteen 78 RPM singles.

– Monsieurs CD/LP (Slovenly)
Indisputably rockin' rollin' noise with sharp aesthetics, aggression and a perfect amount of pop sensibility, making this platter just palatable enough for those too timid to plunge into the sonic cesspool of lead singer's Anthony Macbain's other band, Tunnel Of Love.

>Scott Morgan
– Revolutionary Action 2xCD (Easy Action)
Collects all three solo albums from ex-Rationals, Guardian Angel, Sonics Rendezvous Band member, remastered on a double-CD.

New album from the Swedish black metal band.

>The Ocean Party
– Soft Focus CD (Jigsaw)
The Ocean Party has been around for a few years, but have never strayed outside of Australia. A wonderfully romantic treat, these 11 songs flow along quite nicely, each breezy tune melting away as another one begins. Musical counterparts include the Ladybug Transistor and the Zebras (coincidentally, also from Melbourne), with their songs full of strummy guitars and memorable melodies, yet still steeped in ambiance, courtesy of the ever-present keyboards and synths.

>Over The Rhine
– Blood Oranges In The Snow CD (Great Speckled Dog)
"Over The Rhine's Christmas songs might be the best soundtrack since
A Charlie Brown Christmas for feeling melancholy and lovesick in December. The music practically begs to be mused upon over one hot drink or another." -- Seattle Weekly
– IV: Revenge Of The Vengeance CD (Rock Ridge)
New album from the Chicago, IL based comedy rock kings.
IV is the follow up to 2011's Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs In 3-D and 2013 singles "Obey The Beard" and "Dogs Like Socks," which also appear on the new album along with tons of new tracks, plus guest appearances by Bill Manspeaker (founder of Green Jellö), Neil Patterson and Rob Nichols from Downtown Brown and many many more comedy sing-a-longs ready for the road.
– White Noise CD (Velocity/Rise)
After witnessing their performance on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, Rise quickly worked to sign this Boston pop/punk trio.

– Redinho CD/LP (Numbers)
Glasgow label Numbers put out their most extensive release to date, the self-titled debut album from Redinho, a producer with a knack for creating, bumping, colorful electronic music with plenty of funked-up energy. The highs are plentiful and giddy: "Jacuzzi" and "Playing With Fire" grinding hard with gleeful spirit, "Bubbles" seeing him concoct an enveloping, silk-smooth cocoon, "Making Up The Rules" throwing heady R&B shapes, and "Going Nowhere" an enlivening dance floor powerhouse. It's an album without an inch of fat and one that sounds vital and full of life from start to finish.

>Gruff Rhys
– American Interior CD/LP (Turnstile Music)
Fourth solo album from the Welsh singer/songwriter and Super Furry Animals frontman.
American Interior documents his latest musical road trip, retracing the fantastical American exploits of his distant relative, 18th-century explorer John Evans. The album features 13 phenomenal songs inspired by Evans original journey.
>Scout Ripley
– Image Fiction CD (Aerial Ballet)
Violinist Claire Watkins loop-based experimental pop is fleshed out with an army of synthesizers, guitars, and percussion, taking this former bedroom project to new heights. Peppered with film, TV, and literary references throughout, the title of this EP is a reference to David Foster Wallace's landmark essay
E Unibus Pluram, wherein Image Fiction is described as a post-post-modernist reaction in ‘90s fiction to pop culture centric, reference-based literature. You'll hear lyrical points of reference running the gamut from The Seventh Seal to Arrested Development. Underneath it all though, you'll hear the unique vision of a new band that is more than the sum of its parts.
>Steve Roach/Jorge Reyes
– The Ancestor Circle CD (Projekt)
Conjuring images of a primal futurism, this alchemical blending-of-sound is a ceremonial offering to the forgotten gods.
The Ancestor Circle is a new tribal-ambient-electronic collaboration, the first recording from Roach & Reyes since Vine ~ Bark & Spore.

– In The Seams CD (Surface Area)
Becky Jones aka Saint Saviour is the former lead singer with The RGBs and fronted and co-wrote the singles on Groove Armada's Grammy nominated album
Black Light. Collaborating on this album with Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral), it is a marked departure from her 2012 debut Uncut - stripping back and laying bare the beautiful song-craft of an artist clearly in her prime. The result is a selection of twelve delicate and heart-felt, folk-infused tracks woven into In The Seams - full of lush strings, softly plucked guitars and tender vocals. Vinyl version due November 18.
>The Skull

For Those Which Are Asleep, features ten tracks of elemental heavy metal.
– Sargent Place CD/LP (Dine Alone)
"For Josh Haden and Spain there has been something of a reawakening – the wonderful 2012 return,
The Soul Of Spain hinted back to the band's earliest work but clearly lit something of a fire. For, swiftly in that record's wake we received The Morning Becomes Eclectic Session – an EP-length set of (further) stripped-back versions of the Soul Of Spain material and other favorites, such as the wonderful Spiritual back from 1995's Blue Moods Of Spain album. And here now we have brand new full-length, Sargent Place. This record carries on in much the same vein as Soul Of Spain, that fire not only re-lit but set to slow-burn as opener ‘Love At First Sight' glides in on a glorious waft of bass, a nearly-creepy song forming, slowly, purposefully gathering itself up behind the breathy vocal." – Off The Tracks
>Springtime Carnivore
– Springtime Carnival CD (Autumn Tone)
"Take a step backwards to the days of carefree wanderlust. Inhale a sense of joyous pop music with a touch of old-school dance to grasp another generation. Complications fade away. Things become clear. Worries diminish and you are brought into a world of unapologetic vibrancy. Springtime Carnivore (aka Greta Morgan) delivers just that in her self-titled debut album.
Springtime Carnival is like a storybook of the sorts—full of wonderment and musical notes that take on different characters" – Sound And Silence. Vinyl version due November 10.

– Black Fire! New Spirits! Radical And Revolutionary Jazz In The USA 1957-82 2xCD/3xLP+MP3 (Soul Jazz)
Captures the radicalism and self-determination of pioneering jazz artists in the 1960s and early 1970s. During this era, jazz music in the USA was in an almost constant state of revolution with the music and lives of African-American artists radicalized by civil rights, the avant-garde, Black Power and a new spiritual awakening. At the start of the 1960s, jazz entered a unique new period of revolution as African-American musicians re-defined the art form in the context of the civil rights movement, afro-centric rhythm and thought and an ideology of black economic empowerment. Features John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, Roland Kirk, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Alice Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Leon Thomas, Cecil Taylor and more.

>Various Artists

>Various Artists [Groove Armada]
– Late Night Tales Presents Automatic Soul CD/LP (Night Time Story)
It is 1983 and you've just stepped into your Ford Capri with your girlfriend Julie. You live in Harlow, but in your head you're really somewhere near Salou in Spain, next to your yacht. But the thing you really love is soul and they play nothing but at Sups in Loughton. OK, so It s not 1983 at all. It's 2014, but listening to this electrofied soul, will put you back in the zone. Tom Findlay, one half of Grammy-nominated Groove Armada, has put this collection together: a stamp of authenticity in itself. Tom has also put a few of these through the edit wringer, reworking many of the tunes for maximum towelling sockability.

Features Steve MacKay (Stooges), Rat Scabies (The Damned), Sonny Vincent (Testors), and Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols). Pressed on translucent blue vinyl.

>Virginia Wing
– Measures Of Joy CD/LP (Fire)
Measures Of Joy is a work of psychedelic majesty that avoids the rockist trappings that many contemporary bands fall into; speaking to everyday anxiety and isolation and in contrast, seeking to evoke an inner world of pastoral fortification. The startlingly realized collection draws influence from the radiophonic sounds of Broadcast, the kosmische wonder of Cluster and the rhythmic propulsion of This Heat whilst never directly emulating any particular style.
>Wax Taylor
– Phonovisions Symphonic Orchestra 2xCD+DVD/4xLP+MP3 (Le Plan)
A multifaceted and fiercely independent artist, Wax Tailor established himself in just a few years as one of the leading voices of the post hip-hop and downtempo scenes.

Phonovisions was recorded live with over 50 musicians on stage.
>Wild Smiles
– Always Tomorrow CD/LP (Sunday Best)
Debut LP from the Winchester garage rock outfit. Spanning 11 tracks, the resulting album addresses "issues that most other young bands are too scared or ignorant of to approach," according to a press release. It goes on to say that "the album traces a thematic arc of growing up and getting out, the struggles of the debt-heavy, priced-out youth generation."

>Neil Young
– Storytone CD/2xCD (Reprise)
Storytone was recorded live in the studio with a 92-piece orchestra, choir and Young. He took a different approach with this record, recording the songs on his own, in a solo-setting to creating compelling versions of the songs in a new light, resulting in a deeply-personal emotional listening experience throughout the record. Available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe includes a version of the album recorded solo and a version recorded with the full orchestra. Vinyl version due December 16.

– Floating Into The Night [Reissue/1989] LP (Plain)
HQ-180gm vinyl reissue of Cruise's 1989 album, featuring songs written and produced by composer Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch. Essential for any
Twin Peaks fan.
>Dada Plan
– A Dada Plan Is Free LP (Kingfisher Bluez)
A Dada Plan Is Free is a trip hop-influenced orchestral noise/storm rock album polluted with synths. Sounds like '80 outsider pop, with retro drum machine programming and synth sounds from a Roland Juno-60. There is a deeper meaning at work here, a haunting, dystopian tinge to its chill metropolitan grooves inspired by Brian Eno and Robert Wyatt.
>Dinosaur Feathers
– Control LP (Ernest Jenning)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Brooklyn's Dinosaur Feathers look to Janet Jackson for spiritual guidance on their groove-laden third album
Control. Insistent drum machines and lithe pulsing bass lines meet shimmering synths, coked-out horns and soulful vocals, dragging 1983 pop/R&B kicking and screaming into the new millennium.
>Dirty Beaches
– Stateless LP (Zoo Music)
On the four-song album
Stateless, Zhang Hungtai further explores the instrumental side of his identity that has been present since his first release in 2007. The album is a reflection on Zhang Hungtai's upbringing in various locales (Taipei/Honolulu/Montreal) and the past two years of living and drifting in Europe. The title reflects several years of reflection on associated ideas like Diaspora, borders and hybridism.
>The Dismemberment Plan
– Change [2001] LP (Partisan)
HQ-180gm vinyl reissue in a gatefold sleeve with a 12-page booklet containing art, photography and lyrics to all 11 songs-including the lyrics to "Ellen And Ben," which was omitted from the original CD version.

>Peter Escott
– The Long O LP (Bedroom Suck)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Known best for his work in Tasmanian freak-rock outfit The Native Cats, long-time Australian poet and sometimes stand-up comedian Peter Escott has recently put to tape a magnificent solo opus,
The Long O. Featuring no other performers and limited to the only instruments Escott knows how to play – piano, synth, melodica, and a solitary, awkwardly self-taught guitar chord – the album is as haunting as it is direct, with Escott's voice lending a reserved gravity to the often soaring arrangements.
>Full Sun
– Itch LP/Cassette (Let's Pretend)
12-song debut from Full Sun, driven by drummer turned songwriter Jeff Grant. On
Itch Grant renews some of the straightforward power-pop of his other band, The Sands, and the punk spirit of his first songwriting venture Pink Razors.
>Future Brown
– Wanna Party/World's Mine 12" (Warp)
Experimental electronic supergroup Future Brown (composed of Fatima Al Qadiri, Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda of Nguzunguzu, and J-Cush of Lit City Trax) drops their debut EP. First up, Chicago vocalist Tink adds her unflustered rhyming to the distilled, grime spine on "Wanna Party," with her vocal flow forming a deadly interplay with the eastern chimes whilst 3D Na'Tee joins in on the remix for an extra dosage of attitude. On the flip, Ruff Sqwad members Prince Rapid and Dirty Danger go verse for verse with former Roll Deep member Roachee, offering their breathless lyrics to the panpipe melodies and rapid-fire ricocheting claps.

>Gino And The Goons
– Shake It! LP/Cassette (Slovenly)
This is the album you wanted to be budget rock. This is the album you wanted to be dumb as f*ck. This is the album that fails on both levels. This is the album that proves Ramones worship doesn't have to be predictable or generic. This is the album that proves that rock & roll doesn't have to be a fashion, and that musical style rules supreme.

>Hieroglyphic Being And The Configurative Or Modular Me Trio
– The Seer Of Cosmic Visions 2xLP (Planet Mu)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Producer and boss of Mathematics records, Chicago's Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being is a one-off musical explorer. Jamal's music takes cues from the EBM and house that played a huge part in the city's musical underground in the late eighties and early nineties, notably Ron Hardy and Adonis, but also Industrial, avant-jazz and noise.

– Plowing Into The Field Of Love LP+MP3 (Matador)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Channeling the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship,
Plowing Into The Field Of Love features piano, mandolin, viola and organ atop Johan Suurballe-Wieth s razor-sharp guitars and the lolloping, synchronized rhythm section of Jacob Tvilling Pless and Dan Kjær Nielsen. The record has a clear, uncompressed sound, and Elias Bender Rønnenfelt s desperate vocals are out front, nakedly accountable for the words.
>Ken Jennings
– She's My Rushmore 7" (Kingfisher Bluez)
Thrashy emo punk from the suburbs of Vancouver's DIY scene that echoes the heartache of a generation raised on The Promise Ring and countless late-night TV series marathons.

>Philip Johnson
– Youth In Mourning [Reissue/1982] LP+MP3 (Superior Viaduct)
Johnson is a lost figure in early industrial music/UK cassette culture. This is the first-time reissue of sole LP release from 1982. For fans of Cabaret Voltaire, John Bender and The Shadow Ring.

>Kode9 & The Spaceape
– Killing Season 12" (Hyperdub)
Hyperdub boss Kode9 and regular collaborator The Spaceape return to the label for joint EP. According to the press release, "The emotional, spiritual and psychological effects of living with illness and the "unknown" are dissected wryly, but often with unforgiving brutality in this new batch of songs."

– Second Comin' LP (Cascine)
Korallreven's second album features guest collaborations by Japanese legend Cornelius, Maria Linden of I Break Horses and the Tensta Gospel Choir.

>The Liminanas
– Crystal Anis [Reissue/2012] LP (HoZac)
The sophomore LP from this breakthrough French combo is back in print.
Crystal Anis is brimming with humming, fuzz-filled effervescent pop. It's a slice of modern French Ye-Ye gone underground, conjuring a dimly-lit atmosphere where the long lost transcendent sounds of The Factory intersperse with modern noir nuances to unbelievable effect.
>Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness
– Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness LP (10 Spot/Vanguard)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness is the latest project from the Jack's Mannequin/Something Corporate leader. Features the single "Cecilia And The Satellite."

– The Last Dawn LP (Temporary Residence)
Mono – Rays Of Darkness LP (Temporary Residence)
Released last week on CD – now available on vinyl. Two brand new companion studio albums by Japanese experimental rock group. Recorded simultaneously yet conceptually and creatively disparate, the two act as both opposing and complementary sides to a story.
The Last Dawn is the "lighter" of the two, thematically and melodically, drawing on an array of influences from minimalist film score to vintage shoegaze. Rays Of Darkness is billed as the band's blackest album ever, a collection of scorched riffs, doom rhythms, and an unexpected contribution from post-hardcore pioneer Tetsu Fukagawa of Envy.
>Only Wolf
– Chemicals LP (Kingfisher Bluez)
Taking his name from a terrifying encounter with a pack of hungry wolves, Sean Parker's debut LP as Only Wolf is a sprawling, late night drive of a record that feels precise, organic, and infinitely spaced out. Incorporating the natural sounds of the countryside (crashing waves, clinking cowbells, and creaking trees) and armed with an MPC1000 drum machine and guitar, creating a sound that feels natural and otherworldly at the same time.

>Outrageous Cherry
– The Digital Age LP+MP3 (Burger)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. A new set of rock & roll gems from Detroit power pop legends.

– The Summer Of The Shark [2003] LP+MP3 (Merge)
Mac McCaughan, co-founder of Merge Records and frontman of the band Superchunk, began recording solo albums under the name Portastatic in the early ‘90s. Beginning with this album, Portastatic evolved from a lo-fi side project to become McCaughan?s main focus throughout Superchunk's long hiatus in the early ‘00s. Recorded in Chapel Hill NC,
The Summer Of The Shark included contributions from Janet Weiss (Wild Flag, Quasi, Sleater-Kinney), Tony Crow (Lambchop), Margaret White (Versus, Matt Pond PA), Matthew McCaughan (Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger), Aaron Oliva, and John Plymale. White vinyl.
>Joey Ramone
– Don't Worry About Me [Reissue/2002] LP (Sanctuary)
Digitally remastered reissue of the out of print 2002 debut solo album from the late, legendary Joey Ramone. Features the Joey's cover of Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World." Guest appearances from Marky Ramone (drums on six tracks), The Damned's Captain Sensible, Jerry Only, and Dr. Chud.

– 2 LP (FDH)
Have you ever thought about what it might sound like if Hawkwind recruited Genesis P. Orrigdge and members of The Units into the band? Or if Kraftwerk merged w/members of Pink Floyd and Crass to work on a concept record together? Meet SGNLS, who truly blur the lines of synth-punk, industrial, psych, and krautrock while still holding a pop sensibility.

>Sick Thoughts
– Fat Kid With A 10inch 10" (Slovenly)
The nastiest recording yet from this pudgy, pimple faced f*ck. Channeling GG & The Jabbers and Japanese noise with heavy negatory spirit on each track, this is a sonically screwed and puberty drenched hatful of hateful punk rock sputum.

>Skinny Kids
– Strangers 7" (Kingfisher Bluez)
Four garage-pop reverb freakouts centering on the theme of "strangers." Deserts, gypsies, highways, and some serious Carlos Castaneda vibes.

– Forrest Gump: The Soundtrack [Reissue/1994] 3xLP (SRC Vinyl)
32 American classics on HQ-180gm red, white, and blue vinyl.

>Spacemen 3
– Live At The New Morning, Geneva, 5.18.89 LP (Mental Groove)
Sonic Boom concedes in his sleeve notes "the set presented here, is as it was... except the show was twice this length. We tuned and smoked for almost as long as we played." It's a strong set most notably for the half-hour rendition of "Suicide" that takes up the entirety of side B. It's a seething, pulsating kraut-psych monster.

>Strength Of Materials
– Occam's Depilatory 7" (Kingfisher Bluez)
Debut single featuring Ford Pier (D.O.A., Neko Case) -- a unique string quartet sounding like Mark E. Smith going orchestral. Weird, yelping dissonance, precise soaring melody, and pop culture-curmudgeon lyrics.

– Feel Not Bad LP (Old Flame)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. "
Feel Not Bad brings surprisingly bright summer pop from the heart of the country. SW/MM/NG's sound is comparable to other popular alt-rock notables. Lead singer Brian Kupillas's singing style is very similar to The Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser. Despite this apparent resemblance, SW/MM/NG maintains individuality. The songs pull different punches from the typical surf anthems of summer. Where most insert high-pitched keyboard solos, SW/MM/NG brings in spacy synth touches, which heighten the ambience of youthful wonder." – LSU Revielle
>Tomorrow's Tulips
– When LP+MP3 (Burger)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Beautifully bummed-out chiller pop.

>Tres Mission
– Stigmata 2xLP (Big Dada)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.

– Back To You b/w Always Waiting 7"+MP3 (Merge)
This single quickly follows the band's
Underlay EP and precedes their second full-length Range Anxiety, due in January. Non-album B-side.
– Every Man & Woman Is A Star [Reissue/1991] 2xLP (Rough Trade)
This album offers a mesh of acoustic textures underpinned by a sometimes dubby, sometimes upfront beat. It's a lavish mix of light yet infectious rhythms and mellow vibes, recalling lazy afternoons and bright summer seascapes. Largely instrumental, the album also features lyric snatches from Kevin Ayers and Robert Wyatt.

>Various Artists
– Ghoul's Night Out Volume 1 LP (Simpletone)
Various Artists – Ghoul's Night Out Volume 2 LP (Simpletone)
Obscure ‘50s rockers with a ghoulish theme.

>Various Artists
- I'm Just Like You" Sly's Stone Flower 1969-70 2xLP (Light In The Attic)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. In 1970, The Family Stone were at the peak of their popularity, but the maestro Sly Stone had already moved his head to a completely different space. The first evidence of Sly's musical about-turn was revealed by the small catalog of his new label, Stone Flower: a pioneering, peculiar, minimal electro-funk sound that unfolded over just four 7" singles. Stone Flower's releases were credited to their individual artists, but each had Sly's design and musicianship stamped into the grooves–and the words "Written by Sylvester Stewart/Produced and arranged by Sly Stone" on the sticker. Set up by Stone's manager David Kapralik with distribution by Atlantic Records, Stone Flower was, predictably, a family affair.

>Veruca Salt
– American Thighs [Reissue/1994] LP (Minty Fresh)
Influential '90s indie rockers Veruca Salt reissue their debut album,
American Thighs, for a 20th anniversary vinyl edition. Produced by Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Smashing Pumpkins, Placebo), the album launched the singles "Seether." "Number One Blind," and "Victorla."
– Split LP (Run For Cover)
Whirr's signature atmospheric haze enthralls more than ever in what seems like a nine-minute dream. Their masterful control of soundscapes is matched only by an intensity that their shoegazing predecessors could only wish to achieve. Nothing's contribution is a full-on aural assault: the two songs are aggressive, yet harmonious.
