The Band Drinks For Free. Featuring 12 songs about love, deceit, and death in classic Fleshtones style, the album carelessly (to the purists) tosses together the fuzz-guitar and Farfisa organ riffs of so-called ‘garage rock’ with rockabilly, soul, and surf.

– Wanderer 2xLP+CD+MP3 (Century Media)
Munich, Germany's Heaven Shall Burn specializes in highly controversial and politicized death metal fused with hardcore; a hybrid style often referred to as deathcore. Combining their militant defense of social concerns (racism, corruption, animal cruelty, veganism, etc.) with a seemingly boundless metallic wrath, the group's brutalizing sonic onslaught has drawn comparisons to traditional death metal bands like England's Bolt Thrower, as well as the less regimented, but equally emphatic work of Sweden's The Haunted.

>King Geedorah
– Take Me To Your Leader [Reissue/2003] 2xLP+MP3 (Big Dada/Ninja Tune)
“It’s no secret that MF DOOM had one hell of a run between the late 1990s and early 2000s, returning from the wilderness with 1999’s classic
Operation Doomsday, collaborating with Madlib on 2004’s Madvillainy, dropping Special Herbs mixtapes like it was going out of fashion and introducing two alter-egos, Viktor Vaughn and the space monster King Geedorah. Released back in 2003, Take Me To Your Leader is arguably the most cinematic of DOOM’s albums from this period: entirely produced by him, it’s all dramatic strings, skyscraping samples and reflections on earth from Geedorah’s ‘alien perspective on humans.’” -- Fact
>Kool Keith
– Feature Magnetic LP (Mello Music)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “In a world filled with cheesecake rappers, one man Kool Keith, has assembled a phenomenal team to bring you madness. Critics are calling it sensational. So stop what you're doing and get ready for a journey you've never taken before. The ultimate adventure into
Feature Magnetic. You will never be the same. Free association, sci-fi, sextastic, horrorcore, Kool Keith invented it all. His newest excursion into rhyme finds a who's who of rappers holding it down alongside Keith. From Dirty Nasty to Slug, MF Doom to Bumpy Knuckles, Mac Mall to Rass Kass -- the best to have ever done it spit hotter fire than even Dylan. Like butterscotch ice cream on your crotch or eating dead bok choy with Soldier Boy, you've got to think about it. Get cozy and sit inside the paragraph. This is Feature Magnetic, Kool Keith's newest reality breaker.” [Limited color vinyl pressing.]

Secret Name and Things We Lost In The Fire, Low released The Exit Papers as part of Temporary Residence Ltd.'s long-running CD subscription series, Travels In Constants.

>New Orleans Suspects
- Kaleidoscoped LP (Louisiana Red Hot)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
Kaleidoscoped is the fourth New Orleans Suspects album in as many years. “Many of these songs are still groove-based, but now it’s their own groove. The opening “Get It Started” combines bits of James Brown, the Meters and Dirty Dozen into a seamless whole. The song builds to a false ending before Jeff Watkins’ sax takes it to jazzier territory, yet the central riff never lets up. “You Got the Fire” and “Round Up Dem Suspects” respectively throw fresh spins on vintage local R&B and funked-up Indian chants; and you’ve always got to love a band that will write itself a theme song. Frequent touring partners Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett join in for “Dixie Highway,” but the arrangement is more slinky and sax-driven than anything Little Feat would come up with. It sounds like the Feats joining the Suspects, not the Suspects becoming the Feat.” – Offbeat
>Painkiller

>Silvo Rodriguez
– Los Clasicos de Cuba 1 - Los Grandes Exitos [Reissue/1990] LP+MP3 (Luaka Bop)
In that annoying way of Westerners to compare people from another culture to someone in their own, Silvio was often compared to being Bob Dylan of Latin America. This was not only because he sang songs of political importance but also because he could fill stadiums and he sang poetry.

>Leopold Ross/Bobby Krlic/Atticus Ross
– Almost Holy [OST] LP (Sacred Bones)
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine's social and political institutions faced massive change, including an increasingly corrupt government and crippled infrastructure. A number of the nation's youth wound up homeless and addicted to a lethal cocktail of injected cold medicine and alcohol. Steve Hoover's documentary
Almost Holy follows a pastor named Gennadiy Mokhnenko, who saves street kids, at times by forcible abduction, and brings them to his Pilgrim Republic rehabilitation center -- the largest organization of its kind in the former Soviet Union. The film's depiction of a country in the grip of poverty, addiction, and warfare is made even more powerful by its captivating electronic score by award-winning composer Atticus Ross, his brother Leopold Ross, and Bobby Krlic (The Haxan Cloak).

>Woven Hand
– Star Treatment 2xLP+MP3 (Sargent House/Glitt)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “[Woven Hand’s] David Eugene Edwards has been treading some of the same territory as Cave for a long time now. His music deals in the same darkness, the same obsessiveness. His songs are steeped in the history of American music, of folk and country and blues, and yet they owe as much to some of the clanging, confrontational forms that followed: punk, metal, hardcore, noise-rock. His songs sound like incantations, like prayers bubbling up from below. He’s not Cave, but he’s cut from the same cloth.” -- Stereogum

>Dow Jones And The Industrials – Can’t Stand The Midwest: 1979-1981 CD/2xLP+DVD (Family Vineyard)
For just more than two years starting in 1979, Dow Jones and the Industrials created roaring art-punk that collided with the confusion and celebration of technology. Their left field approach turned gnarled guitar riffs into unshakable melodies battered by synths and propelled with sharp lyrics.
Can't Stand The Midwest 1979-1981 includes 29 songs remastered from the original tapes: The Industrials' side from "Hoosier Hysteria," the rare 1980 split LP with the Gizmos; a 1981 7” EP; nine unreleased studio tracks; live versions of unrecorded songs and more.

The Complete BBC Sessions is an updated version of the collection, newly remastered with supervision by Jimmy Page and expanded with eight unreleased BBC recordings, including three rescued from a previously “lost” session from 1969. Highlights include the debut of a long-lost radio session that has achieved near-mythic status among fans. Originally broadcast in April 1969, the session included three songs: “I Can't Quit You Baby,” “You Shook Me,” and the only recorded performance of “Sunshine Woman.” Also included are two unreleased versions of both “Communication Breakdown” and “What Is And What Should Never Be.” Separated by two years, the performances vividly demonstrate the young band's rapid evolution over a short period of time.

>Bear vs. Shark
- Right Now You're in the Best of Hands/Terrorhawk [Reissue/2003/2005] 2xLP (Equal Vision)
Bear Vs Shark, the Detroit mainstays who disbanded in 2005 after two tremendous albums, hit the primal sweet spot for a lot of listeners. Not too pissed. Not too anthemic. Not too nostalgic and not too instrumentally self-indulgent. The adrenaline-pumping, aerodynamic rock tunes of BVS feel like a secret formula of sorts because it was something heavy, something intense, something fast, that never wore you down. It was acrobatic and, at times, aerobic, but never tired you out. It was contemplative and blunt but never exhausted your emotional core. Limited color 180gm vinyl.

>Sarah Mary Chadwick
– Roses Always Die LP (Rice Is Nice)
New album from the Australian singer/songwriter. Following three critically acclaimed solo albums, Sarah Mary Chadwick's
Roses Always Die expands on the quiet intensity of her previous work, exploring memory, grief and personal analysis. Her unflinching approach to songwriting introduces complex, often difficult subject matter as vivid as it is understated. An old immobile organ provides the only accompaniment to her voice, giving the album an eerie consistency that perfectly underpins the diverse, open-ended narratives that run through each song.
>Chic

>Stefan Christensen
– American Pastoral Again LP (Ever/Never)
Channeling Gate, Jim Shepard, Crystalized Movements, and Shakey himself, the twelve-minute title track consumes the entire A-side in a melancholic dirge. It is backed by four quick blasts that introduce elements of pop, noise, and more dirge. With varied approaches, Stefan’s songs are written from a unique and developed voice. A unifying thread through these works is the careful craftsmanship, each song tailored perfectly—knowing when to let it breathe, when to ramp up tension—for the most impact. Had Stefan cut his teeth in a more insular scene, in a more glamorous town, he’d have been a hitmaker, but we are thankful that was not the case. As American Pastoral Again demonstrates, he is onto something much more fulfilling and unforgettable.

Songs of sea, sex and sand sprinkled with goodbyes, divorce, truthful situations and perhaps a few laughs. “L.A.’s perennial coast and canyon outfit rinse the salt off with
Darren 4, their first LP in a decade. Two decades in, led by the Zelig-like Darren Rademaker, The Tyde remain kitted out in a unique bouillabaisse of sound often imitated yet never duplicated. It’s not gossip if it’s true. Kooks take note.” —Aquarium Drunkard

In 1968, three sisters from Fremont, New Hampshire strapped on their instruments and declared themselves The Shaggs.

Dot, Betty and Helen (and occasionally Rachel, the fourth sister) played in the group on the insistence of their father, Austin Wiggin Jr., who was convinced they were going to be big. The Shaggs entered Fleetwood Recording studios in Revere, Massachusetts to record their sole album,
Philosophy Of The World, a collection of garage rock tunes that balanced charm and discordance in equal measure.
>Show Me The Body
– Body War LP (Loma Vista)

– Darren 4 LP (Spiritual Pajamas)
Songs of sea, sex and sand sprinkled with goodbyes, divorce, truthful situations and perhaps a few laughs. “L.A.’s perennial coast and canyon outfit rinse the salt off with
Darren 4, their first LP in a decade. Two decades in, led by the Zelig-like Darren Rademaker, The Tyde remain kitted out in a unique bouillabaisse of sound often imitated yet never duplicated. It’s not gossip if it’s true. Kooks take note.” —Aquarium Drunkard

This Week’s Vinyl Exclusives:
>Hasil Adkins
– Chicken Walk [Reissue/1984] LP (Jambalaya)
Raised in Boone County, West Virginia, the son of a coal miner, Hasil Adkins grew up in poverty in a tarpaper shack on coal company property, where he taught himself to play after hearing Hank Williams on the radio. The legend goes that he didn't realize Hank had a band backing him up, and that's why Hasil learned to play guitar and drums at the same time. Adkins wrote tons of amazing original material beginning in the 1950s, which “explored an affinity for chicken, sexual intercourse, and decapitation.”
Chicken Walk is a 14-track compilation of his recordings from the ‘50s.
>All Hail The Yeti
- Screams From A Black Wilderness LP (Minus Head Recordings)
Released last May on CD – now available on vinyl. All Hail The Yeti is a modern metal band from Hollywood, evoking the likes of Acid Bath and Pantera with a healthy dose of Mötley Crüe-style excess and infectiousness.

Vinyl reissue of one of the records that helped launch the New Wave of British Heavy Metal genre in the early ‘80s. Pressed on red and yellow “flame” marbled color vinyl.

>The Beautiful Losers
– Nobody Knows The Heaven [Reissue/1976] LP (Lion)
If The Beautiful Losers’ lone LP
Nobody Knows The Heaven had been released in 1971, everyone would point to T-Rex as an influence, and call it “glam folk”; fast forward to today and it’s hard not to think “loner,” and draw comparisons with the music of Devendra Banhart. The music drips with deep nostalgia for the decadent “beautiful people” who lived and breathed and then found a home in the songs of Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen, pervaded throughout with a kind of psychedelic sadness. All of this is expressed by means of long jagged acid guitar runs (or in acoustic strums) supported by Moroccan percussion and heavy bass lines.
>Craig Bell
- aka Darwin Layne LP (Ever/Never)
To many, Craig Bell is is the bassist guitarist/singer with Mirrors and Rocket From The Tombs, two bands that were among the foundation stones upon which the Cleveland, OH music scene of the 1970s was built.

>Luke Bell
– Luke Bell LP (Bill Hill)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “Luke Bell is a country singer of seriously old timey tradition. He was born in Wyoming, where he grew up working on a ranch, dropped out of school to make music, and now he's in Nashville, the country music capital of the world. And that's not all—his music sounds like you could have heard it in the same honky tonk Hank Williams used to play (with the exception of a little profanity). ‘Sometimes,’ the first single off Bell's new self-titled album, is a two-step worthy tune about the mixed feelings he has about leaving his girl behind. ‘So now I sit alone, but mostly I don't mind/ except every now and then at closin’ time/ there's a sweet memory/ at the bottom of my glass,’ he croons with his old soul voice, transporting you straight to the stool next to him at the whiskey joint. Makes you wanna wipe those honky tonk tears off his face” – The Fader

A Mineral Love, Bibio returns with a new collection of songs featuring vocals from Olivier St Louis. Available on a limited run of clear vinyl, The Serious EP is a collection of four chilled out, soulful tracks.

Taking the track in a deeper, more digital direction, the veteran duo have crafted a classic slice of modern dancehall, reminiscent of the legendary sounds of Gussie P. and that timeless '90s vibe. Flip it over for a dubwise version.
>Bloodshot Bill and Shannon Shaw
- Honey Time b/w True 7" (Slovenly)
On this sureshot 7” the duo couples vocal duties with a raving blaster for the A-side, and flip-flop the mood with a sultry kissing-floor crooner on the lower deck.

>David Brent & Foregone Conclusion
– Life On The Road [OST] LP (Caroline International)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Since
The Office ended in 2003, the world has been starved of David Brent (Ricky Gervais). He popped up in the American version of The Office, as well as featuring in the odd segment for Comic Relief (most recently with Doc Brown for their song “Equality Street”), but now he's back and bigger than ever! New movie and soundtrack Life On The Road sees the former reality TV star turned rep head out on tour with his band Foregone Conclusion to try and achieve his dream of being a rock star.

>Cold Cave
– The Idea Of Love b/w Run The Day 7” (Heartworm Press)
With an already prolific number of releases, Cold Cave has become a name synonymous with the contemporary resurgence of darkwave and synth pop sub-genres. This picture disc 7” is released on the toes of his upcoming US tour.

>Ornette Coleman
- Change Of The Century [Reissue/1960] LP (Doxy)
The second album by Ornette Coleman's legendary quartet featuring Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins,
Change Of The Century is every bit the equal of the monumental The Shape of Jazz To Come (1959), showcasing a group that was growing ever more confident in its revolutionary approach and the chemistry in the band members' interplay. When Coleman concentrates on melody, his main themes are catchier, and when the pieces emphasize group interaction, the improvisation is freer.
>Alvin Curran
- Natural History [1983] LP (Black Truffle)
First-ever vinyl issue of Alvin Curran's
Natural History, originally released on cassette by Edition Giannozzo Berlin in 1983. A founding member of the radical electronic improvising group Musica Elettronica Viva, since the early 1970s Curran has developed an idiosyncratic body of solo work that occupies a unique position in the post-Cageian experimental tradition. Natural History consists entirely of field recordings from Curran's archive, arranged as a series of “still lifes.” Sounds recorded over the course of nearly twenty years, at Curran's home in Rome or while traveling: constructions sites, insects, children's toys, a piano being tuned, foghorns, lovemaking, a singing neighbor. It is, as Curran says, an attempt to “put the sound of the entire world on a cassette tape.”
>Delia Derbyshire and Elsa Stansfield
- Circle Of Light LP (Trunk)
Trunk Records present a highly important and previously unreleased soundtrack for
Circle Of Life, created in 1972 by musician Delia Derbyshire and artist Elsa Stansfield.

>Drosofile
- Drosofile 7" (SDZ)

>Eros And The Eschaton
- Weight Of Matter LP+MP3 (Bar/None)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Eros And The Eschaton’s second album is filled with the kind of shoegazer and psychedelic sounds that got them voted the Best Pop Band in Denver by the readers of Westword Magazine. It’s a Neil Young & Crazy Horse guitar-inspired album, dialing in tones akin to The Walkmen while maintaining the airy psychedelia of their debut,
Home Address For Civil War.
>Bernard Fevre
- Orbit Ceremony 77 LP+MP3 (Medical Records)
Lost LP from 1977, rebuilt from original tapes, by the creator of Black Devil Disco Club. The quirky, cosmic library music found on this long-deleted '70s science-fiction-themed album if full of burbling synths and off-kilter melodies. Spacy Moogs, weird clavinet, and cosmic analog drum machines: it’s all here. 180gm mustard color vinyl.

>Gallant
– Ology 2xLP (Mind Of A Genius/WB)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “Gallant was not rushed to market. Gallant is the wise, lucky beneficiary of development and time. Or we are.
Zebra, the EP that Christopher Gallant released in 2014, was adrift in a stylized haze; but on Ology, the 24 year-old singer's soulful voice is front and center, and his intent clear. This debut album is a study of his anxieties and insecurities, and musically, it walks a careful line between the feuding impulses of contemporary R&B. Some examples: ‘Episode’ edges toward disco, if Nile Rodgers were to take ‘I Don't Feel Like Dancing’ under his wing. ‘Open Up’ has notes of James Blake. ‘Miyazaki’ pulls in a phrase from Groove Theory's ‘Tell Me,’ with Gallant drinking from the same '90s-flavored well as fellow Maryland natives Abhi//Dijon and other young alternative R&B acts blowing up Soundcloud. Ology is the latest example of R&B that converses with folk and rock and dub and trip-hop and Sufjan and Top 40 in the way that everybody who listens to music does, and has for their whole life, not in no PBR&B type of way, but in a way that doesn't serve radio formats. Instead, Gallant's music serves us” – NPR
>Jerry Goldsmith
- Rudy [OST/1993] LP (Varese Sarabande)
First time pressing on 180gm gold color vinyl. Inner sleeve and jacket include many images of the Notre Dame campus and football team and a note from “Rudy” himself.

>Heart
– Beautiful Broken LP (Concord)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “Heart, essentially sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson – has a problem. A good problem, but a problem nonetheless. When you’ve FINALLY been recognized as a Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame band – Good LORD, why did that take so long? – you’re almost at the legacy stage. If you’re still making music, everything you put out is compared to the stuff you did that got you enshrined in the first place. And you can be gol-dang sure someone will say, ‘Yeah, but it’s not (fill in the blank).’ Well, OK, let me be the one to say it.
Beautiful Broken, the 16th album from the sisters and whichever players they choose to surround themselves with in this current incarnation, isn’t Dreamboat Annie and it’s not Little Queen. So what? Bleeping. What? The album actually has only three new songs on it, and technically the title cut was a bonus cut on Fanatic, Heart’s 2012 LP. The rest are reimagined versions of songs that appeared on Passionworks (1983), Private Audition (1982), and Bébé Le Strange (1980). The cut that’s getting the biggest press is ‘Beautiful Broken’ partly because Metallica’s James Hetfield chimes in on vocals with Ann Wilson, and even adds a few lyrics to the song. But the tune I love the most – and I mean love – is a new one, ‘Two,’ sung by Nancy Wilson. A rolling poignant ballad, it showcases a voice that’s often overshadowed by her sister’s Maria Callas-quality operatic vocals. Grade: A.” – Cleveland.com
>Hu Vibrational
- The Epic Botanical Beat Suite - Boonghee Music 4 LP (Meta)
Hu Vibrational's
The Epic Botanical Beat Suite - Boonghee Music 4 mixes deep percussive African rhythms and Afro-jazz with elements of hip-hop and electronica. Recorded and mixed at Bill Laswell's state of the art studio, this is the fourth album for Hu Vibrational.

>Mare
– EP [Reissue/2005] 12” (Hydra Head)
Mare remains one of the enigmatic entries in the Hydra Head roster of artists, as this eponymous EP represents the band's one and only recording. The band had a short run from 2004 to 2007, emerging out of Toronto's death/tech-metal community. On the five songs of Mare, the band assembled a menacing composite of styles and forms -- sludge-metal, math-rock, classic prog idioms, and the diaphonic harmonies from Bulgarian chorals.

The Joker, and now the band is marking that milestone with a special live album.
>Mouse On Mars
- Lichter 10"+MP3 (Infinite Greyscale)
Lichter is the first piece in a new series of electroacoustic dub compositions by Mouse On Mars. It is a massive, lurching, up-tempo percussive epic. Like much of Mouse On Mars's output, Lichter deftly traverses a varied sonic landscape, encompassing elements of jazz, dub, krautrock juke and psychedelia.

Neon-pink vinyl, single-sided with silkscreened B-side.

>Old Mate
– It Is What It Is LP (SDZ)
Old Mate began as a solo-project by Bitch Prefect's Pat Telfer. They now became a real band that consists of seven to ten musicians including members of Peak Twins and Wireheads.
It Is What It Is is moody melodrama ala Bauhaus or Nick Cave gone dole-wave.
>Asie Payton
– Just Do Me Right [2006] LP (Fat Possum)
This posthumous complement to Payton's only studio disc is something of a revelation. Not only does it confirm that he was a great blues and soul singer (just check out “Back To The Bridge,” with its “In The Midnight Hour” riff, or the lazy groove of “I Got A Friend,” with its percolating wah-wah guitar line) but it shows the man could play funk too. “1000 Years” roars out of the speakers straight to the dancefloor, powered by some unexpected horns and “Need My Help” has all the power of a latter-day Hendrix song. The result is a soaring testimony to someone who was an unsung great in his lifetime. Part of Fat Possum's 25th Anniversary reissue series. Originally released in 2006, now available on vinyl for the first time.

>Pearl Jam
– Hail, Hail [1996] 7” (Epic/Sony Legacy)

>Peymont
– Cibernetica [Reissue/1971] LP (Intervallo)
A real gem of electronic experimentation with an unknown artist; many believe Piero Umiliani, Luigi Malatesta or Egisto Macchi used this Peymont alias. Automated controls, auto-regulation, information theory -- abstract, uncommon and rarely used concepts at the time of the recording -- deeply influenced
Cibernetica.
>Poom
- 2016 2xLP (Poom)
Poom differ from the French song scenery with their electronic sounds inherited from the French touch, their love for funk and disco and a hint of symphonic orchestra. The influences of French artists such as Michel Legrand, Daft Punk, Gainsbourg or Air are apparent on

>Rik And The Pigs

>Mulan Serrico
- Discret LP (Crudités)
Discret is a dark and danceable synth-pop album from French artist Mulan Serrico. Hints of lo-fi electronics, new beat, minimal techno and acid house support puzzling French lyrics.
>Sam Shalabi / Alan Bishop
& Sam Shalabi - Mother Of All Sinners (Puppet On A String) LP (Unrock)
Unrock's string-oriented Saraswati Series presents the first part of their actively anti-Western sub-series with
Mother Of All Sinners, featuring Osama Shalabi and Alan Bishop. Shalabi, an expert oud player (Shalabi Effect & Land Of Kush), breathes his own sense of space and time through the epic “Tamara,” an 18-minute melodic, delightful improvisation. “Faith Of Our Fathers” sees Sam Shalabi and Alan Bishop run free, lose form, find intensity, and wound up creating a contemporary version of oriental psychedelic free form.
>Social Distortion

Limited white vinyl reissue of the punk/alt. rock band’s fifth album.

>Steaming Coils
- Breaded [Reissue/1988] LP+7" (Medical Records)
From the underground Los Angeles scene in the mid-'80s arose a couple of musicians that created off-kilter, complex and yet exquisitely crucial art rock. The duo comprised of Brad Laner (Savage Republic and much later Medicine, Electric Company, etc) and David Chrisman (3 Day Stubble), Steaming Coils was a project that also involved multiple other like minds from the L.A.F.M.S. (Los Angeles Free Music Society) amongst other misfits and kooks. 180gm color vinyl with bonus 7” featuring tracks from their unreleased fourth album.
