– Digital Shades Vol. 1 [Reissue/2007] CD/LP (Mute)
– Saturdays = Youth [Reissue/2008] CD/LP (Mute)
Digital Shades Vol. 1 is the fourth studio album by M83. The mostly instrumental album was originally released on Mute in 2007, and features only founding member Anthony Gonzalez.
Old fans will note a substantial difference between
Saturdays = Youth and M83's previous releases; the album is more shoegazey in texture and more pop in construction. While the galactic, deep space vibe is still there, the overall aesthetic is more Cocteau Twins a la My Bloody Valentine rather than another addition to the towering electronic post-rock tradition that Mogwai and Sigur Rós perfected. The record draws heavily from the likes of Tears For Fears and Cocteau Twins, as well as classic John Hughes teen movies.

>Kurt Cobain – And I Love Her b/w Sappy (Early Demo) 7" (UMe)
"Brett Morgen uncovered a great amount of previously unheard Kurt Cobain material while researching his stellar documentary,
Montage Of Heck. One such song was the late Nirvana frontman's raw, acoustic take on The Beatles' 'And I Love Her,' a surprise find considering Cobain's stated dislike for Paul McCartney, who wrote the track. Previously unknown to exist, Morgen found the recording on a random tape, and included it in his film. Now, Cobain's haunting version is officially released as a 7" vinyl single b/w his own rarity, 'Sappy'." – Consequence Of Sound

– Come Fly With Me LP (Herb Alpert Presents)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Herb Alpert returns with a new album,
Come Fly With Me, a mix of new Alpert originals and classic American tunes ("Come Fly With Me," "Blue Skies," and "Take The A Train" are just a few that are featured), performed as only the beloved trumpeter can. "With his latest recording, Come Fly With Me, legendary award-winning trumpeter, producer, artist and overall Renaissance Man, Herb Alpert takes the listener on a melody-rich, groove-embellished artistic journey, offering marvelous musical perspectives and insights with both familiar and exciting new sonic landscapes." – All About Jazz
>The Besnard Lakes
– The Golden Lion 12"+MP3 (Jagjaguwar)
Three brand new tracks as a precursor to a new album due in 2016. "On 'Golden Lion,' Besnard Lakes focus their lush energy on a sunnier, catchier sound. Jace Lasek's clean falsetto is more alive when paired with high-flying guitars, and alongside the band's blanketed, nonlinear arrangements, he sounds like he's studied the Bee Gees and Brian Wilson. But there is an ease here that Besnard Lakes haven't experimented with. 'You are a golden lion,' Lasek sings, and the sweet melody is so strong that the abstract lyrics become a compliment. It's unclear if this is a love song. As a symbol, the golden lion recalls the Tarot card of Strength, but the song's adherence to a classic melody dissolves any doubts. If 'Golden Lion' isn't about loving another person, it's about loving the purest elements of pop." – Pitchfork

>Bestial Mouths
– Down To The Bones b/w Small Prey 7" (Cleopatra)
Limited edition 7" from one of the darkest new bands featuring songs from the group's forthcoming full-length album.

‎– A Night At Birdland With The Art Blakey Quintet, Vol. 2 [Reissue/1954] 10" (Blue Note)
Limited 10" vinyl pressing. A true Blue Note essential and must-own, this title is an important piece of jazz history. Recorded in New York City in 1954, this live album features Clifford Brown, Lou Donaldson and Horace Silver -- a stunning precursor to the Jazz Messengers. The recording was produced by Alfred Lion and engineered by Rudy Van Gelder for Blue Note.

>David Bowie
– Hours [Reissue/1999] LP (Friday Music)
HQ-180gm blue vinyl. 1999's
Hours, which served as David Bowie's twenty-third solo album, harkened a return to the sounds of the Hunky Dory days.
– The World Reversed 7" (Broken World Media)
The Pittsburgh based indie band made waves last year with their second LP
Now And Loud with its blend of spacey, delay damaged riffs and catchy melodies. Brightside's new follow-up EP, The World Reversed, showcases the band further mastering their songwriting craft.
>Clifford Brown
– New Star On The Horizon [Reissue/1953] 10" (Blue Note)
Limited 10" vinyl pressing of this classic 1954 release by prolific jazz trumpeter, Clifford Brown. Brown died at the age of 25 in a car accident, leaving behind only four years' worth of recordings. Nonetheless, he had a considerable influence on later jazz trumpet players, including Donald Byrd, Lee Morgan, Booker Little, and Freddie Hubbard. He was also a composer of note. Brown won the Down Beat critics' poll for the New Star of the Year in 1954; he was inducted into the Down Beat "Jazz Hall of Fame" in 1972 in the critics' poll.

>Butthole Surfers
– Electriclarryland [Reissue/1996] 2xLP (Plain)
Originally released in 1996,
Electriclarryland features the Surfers only top 40 hit with the song "Pepper". Although the sound on this album continues the more streamlined approach they started with Independent Worm Saloon, this record is by no means mainstream, even with the hit. With pile driving rockers, pop-punk raves, acid freakouts and their demented sense of humor and bizarre perspective intact, the Surfers take no prisoners. Three sides of music with the fourth side featuring etchings by Gibby Haynes.
>Nuno Canavarro
– Plux Quba [Reissue/1988] LP (Drag City)
Canavarro is a favorite of Jim O'Rouke, Christoph Heemann. There are some similarities to Robert Ashley's later work, but even that is deceiving. It is simple, gentle, melodic, amd yet completely alien. Originally released in 1988 on Ama Romanta, and reissued last in 1998 on Moikai.

>John Carpenter
– The Fog [OST/1980] 2xLP (Silva Screen)
John Carpenter's 1980 follow-up film to his smash hit
Halloween featured ghost sailors terrorizing a Californian coastal community as a dense fog descends on their homes. The multi-talented filmmaker's atmospheric synthesizer score has long been a soundtrack favorite and this double album features a 20 track LP of the entire score, drawn from the original tapes, remastered by long-time Carpenter collaborator Alan Howarth on the A/B sides and the original album which featured 20 minutes of newly released music on the C/D sides. Pressed on HQ-180gm white and green vinyl and packaged in gatefold jackets.

Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Liberman" is the fifth studio album by singer/songwriter and pianist Vanessa Carlton. "With the release of her first record in over two years, acclaimed pop-rock songstress Vanessa Carlton dives headfirst back into the fray with an entirely new and explorative sound.

>Kurt Cobain
– And I Love Her b/w Sappy (Early Demo) 7" (UMe)
"Brett Morgen uncovered a great amount of previously unheard Kurt Cobain material while researching his stellar documentary,
Montage Of Heck. One such song was the late Nirvana frontman's raw, acoustic take on The Beatles' 'And I Love Her,' a surprise find considering Cobain's stated dislike for Paul McCartney, who wrote the track. Previously unknown to exist, Morgen found the recording on a random tape, and included it in his film. Now, Cobain's haunting version is officially released as a 7" vinyl single b/w his own rarity, 'Sappy'." – Consequence Of Sound
>Shawn Colvin

>Patrick Cowley
– Kickin' In 12" (Honey Soundsystem)
Perhaps one of the most revolutionary and influential people in the canon of disco music, Cowley created his own brand of Hi-NRG dance music, "The San Francisco Sound." This
12" was culled from the final mixed down reel for "Kickin' In", an epic 12-minute journey through disco that Patrick recorded in 1978.
>The Dandy Warhols

D12 is the hip-hop group from Detroit featuring Eminem. These vinyl reissues are part of UMe's ongoing Respect The Classics vinyl reissue campaign, each featuring an animated lenticular cover.

– Songs One Through Eight LP (Virtual Label)
Among fans of the alt-county genre, the names Munly Munly, Slim Cessna, Lord Dwight Pentacost and Rebecca Vera have no doubt crossed one's lips over the past twenty years. Alongside of their work in Slim Cessna's Auto Club, and via labels as disparate as Alternative Tentacles and Pesanta Urfolk, this debut album is a parallel collaboration collectively known as DBUK (Denver Broncos UK). With
Songs One Through Eight, Munly's signature dark, high lonesome country folk and Cessna's Hank Williams II country twang meet in the middle. The quartet's bare-bones sound and unorthodox instrumentation combines traditional American folk with post-punk leanings, with a Southern Gothic sensibility that permeates both bands' repertoires.
– Karma [1997] 2xLP+MP3 (Nettwerk)
Karma is the 1997 breakthrough album from Canadian ethnic electronica/new age group Delerium; the duo comprised of Bill Leeb and his long time collaborator/co-producer Rhys Fulber (both of Frontline Assembly).

– Believe [2002] LP (Reprise)
First time on vinyl for Disturbed's second album.

>Dr. Dre
– Compton (A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre) 2xLP (Aftermath)
Now available on vinyl. "Musically, the album is a reminder that Dre's palette and appetite for sound has always been eclectic, and rather than retread, we hear him pushing into new territory. At one moment, he's sampling an obscure modern funk band from Italy (for 'One Shot One Kill') and the next, lifting a guitar riff from a random Turkish psychedelic burner. Throughout, session musicians polish out the edges, and Dre continues to lean on live keys and bass to fill out chunky bottom ends." [BNM/8.8] – Pitchfork

>Duran Duran
– Seven And The Ragged Tiger [Reissue/1983] 2xLP (Rhino)
Duran Duran – Big Thing [Reissue/1988] 2xLP (Rhino)

– Days Have Gone By [Reissue/1967] LP (4 Men With Beards)
Originally released in 1967.
Days Have Gone By continues Fahey's interest in soundscapes, sound effects and experimental music mixed in with more traditional guitar playing of his earlier musical style.
– When Earth Lets Go [2004] 2xLP+MP3 (Kscope)
Released on vinyl LP for the first time in gatefold sleeve with artwork etching. Formed in Oslo in 1996 by childhood friends Jon-Arne Vilbo and Thomas Andersen along with Jan-Henrik Ohme (later joined by Mikael Kromer, Robert R Johansen and Kristian Torp), Gazpacho have honed their unique sound over a string of critically acclaimed albums and numerous tours, including several with long-time supporters Marillion. On
When Earth Lets Go the group were joined by drummer Robert Johansen, and took the step from being a "studio band" to a "live band." The album is seen by many as a rougher edged album than Bravo, a direction Gazpacho wanted to take without repeating themselves.
>The Heads
– Time In Space 2xLP (Rooster)
Originally pressed in a limited edition for sale at Liverpool Psych Fest, The Heads'
Time In Space compiles twenty-two tracks from their highly collectable tour CDR series. Cut by Shawn Joseph and showcasing Sam Giles artwork, this collection of studio outtakes, rehearsal sessions and live tracks is the ticket to some serious cosmic adventures.

>Helta Skelta

Helta Skelta is the newest face of Australian punk. While the group already has an album and a few singles under their belt,
Beyond The Black Stump takes their sound in unexpected directions.
– 10,000 Years [2003] 2xLP (Noiseland)
The Honeydogs wry sincerity and casually brilliant songcraft have made them critic's favorites and local legends in the Twin Cities. Their 2003 album,
10,000 Years is an ambitious, sweeping epic; part Brave New World, part Three Penny Opera, part Sgt. Pepper and part Pleased To Meet Me.
>Bruce Hornsby And The Range
– The Way It Is [Reissue/1986] LP (Exhibit)

– Picking Up The Pieces LP (Sugar Hill)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Jewel produced
Picking Up The Pieces herself in Nashville, recruiting an A-list session band including 2014's ACM Guitar Player of the Year Rob McNelley and frequent Neil Young collaborators like drummer Chad Cromwell as an ode to Ben Keith, with whom she worked on Pieces of You and was a staple figure in the Young world before his death in 2010. "Though evocative of her earliest years, Picking Up The Pieces is still also true to her country side, with 'My Father's Daughter,' a collaboration with Dolly Parton that tells the story of Jewel's father and grandmother, the later whom emigrated from Europe and was an aspiring opera singer. Jewel released her first country album, Perfectly Clear, in 2008, and played June Carter Cash in the Lifetime TV movie Ring Of Fire. And she's got one heck of a mountain yodel." – Rolling Stone
>Kenji Kawai
- Devilman 'The Birth' [OST/1987] LP (Tiger Labs)

Ghost In The Shell, Ringu) is the original 1987 video animation soundtrack. The electronic and orchestral score includes two bonus tracks from the band Anthem, which play during the séance and transformation scenes from the movie.

Returning along side star Bruce Campbell, is masterful composer Joe LoDuca, who also crafted the terrifying scores to the first and second Evil Dead. Like the film, LoDuca's score to Army Of Darkness is an ambitious blending of genre that was ahead of its time.
>Loma Prieta
– Self Portrait LP (Deathwish)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. "Out of nowhere a couple weeks ago, I stumbled upon Loma Prieta's song 'Love.' It starts with a few strummed chords that quickly give way to a snarling voice, guitars so fuzzed-out they bleed together into a pulse of noise, and heavy, urgent percussion. But in the midst of this, a thread of melody held strong, small and wiry, underneath the din. It struck me in a way a lot of heavy music does, and some cursory research revealed that Jack Shirley — a producer who is infamous in some circles for producing Deafheaven's, similarly heavy and melodic
Sunbather — was also behind the boards here. Even though I just discovered them, Loma Prieta are well-known in the Bay Area, and 'Love' is the lead single off the group's fifth full-length album, Self Portrait." – Stereogum
>Joe Lovano
‎– Quartets: Live At The Village Vanguard Volume 1 2xLP (Blue Note)
Recorded at the Village Vanguard in 1994 and 1996. Part of Blue Note's ongoing 75
th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign.
>Jesse Malin
– Outsiders LP (One Little Indian)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Born out of late night recording sessions in the Pennsylvania woods with producer Don DiLego, far from any expectations,
Outsiders presents Jesse Malin in raw form. Malin himself describes it as "a record built out of optimism and disgust -- one for the leavers, the believers, the hustlers and the chicken hawks who could never catch us." The collection includes "Here's The Situation," featuring J Masics on guitar, and a cover of The The Clash's "Stay Free" – especially poignant because Jesse first played it at Ryan Adam's guitarist, Johnny McNabb's memorial last year.
>Mare Cognitum
– Phobos Monolith 2xLP (Fallen Empire)
"Cold, harsh, haunting, this one-man black metal project is a melancholic space odyssey that completely bowls you over with its intricacy and layers. It has its dreamy moments of cosmic free floating with its opening track, 'Weaving The Thread of Transcendence,' but grounds you in reality with the introduction of the second song, 'Entropic Hallucinations.' Pounding beats, piano flourishes, and the hissing rasp of creator Jacob Buczarski's vocals create the sensation of an entire other worldly orchestra. It's Enslaved in space and is absolutely beautiful."—Metal Sucks.

>MC 900 Ft. Jesus
– Welcome To My Dream [1991] LP+MP3 (Nettwerk)
Since it's 1991 CD release, MC 900 Ft. Jesus'
Welcome To My Dream has earned a cult reputation as one of the pioneering works of hip-hop, funk and jazz fusion.

>Hank Mobley
– Workout [Reissue/1962] LP (Blue Note)
Hank Mobley was an American hard bop and soul jazz tenor saxophonist and composer. Mobley was described by Leonard Feather as the "middleweight champion of the tenor saxophone," a metaphor used to describe his tone, that was neither as aggressive as John Coltrane nor as mellow as Stan Getz, and his style that was laid-back, subtle and melodic, especially in contrast with players like Sonny Rollins and Coltrane. Part of Blue Note's 75
th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign.
>Musiq (Soulchild)
– Aijuswanaseing [Reissue/2000] 2xLP (Def Jam)
With his 2000 debut album,
Aijuswanaseing (I Just Want to Sing), Musiq Soulchild made an indelible mark on the R&B soundscape. Aijuswanaseing is a remarkable collection of songs that successfully showcases Soulchild's vocal talent and versatility as he crisscrosses the analogous styles of R&B, soul, and rap. Purple vinyl, part of UMe's ongoing Respect The Classics reissue campaign.
>Genesis Breyer P-Orridge / Black Rain / Cold Cave

Pentatonix's work, which is mostly in the pop style, consists of covers of existing songs, sometimes in the form of medleys, along with original material. Their music is defined by their own arrangement style, tight vocal harmonies, extensive vocal riffing, deep and steady vocal basslines, and a diverse range of vocal percussion and beatboxing.

– Golden Years LP (Cuneiform)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The award-winning Norwegian jazz quartet Pixel is in the vanguard of a scene brimming with exceptional young musicians, charting an exhilarating, improvisation-steeped jazz path infused with the cathartic energy of indie rock. Pixel's third album Golden Years captures the next step in the band's rapid evolution. Pixel consists of double bassist and vocalist Ellen Andrea Wang, drummer Jon Audun Baar, trumpeter Jonas Kilmork Vemøy, and saxophonist Harald Lassen (with everyone contributing vocals).
The group tends toward translucent textures, tight orchestration and pop-inflected songcraft. While the sound is essentially acoustic, Vemøy and Lassen increasingly employ subtle effects that provide deeper textural depth to the already charged mélange of bright harmonies and protean rhythmic thrust.

>Red Red Meat
– Deluxe Career Retrospective 8xLP+MP3+Book (Jealous Butcher)
Hand made by the band and Jealous Butcher, this fancy autographed box set includes
There's A Star Above The Manger Tonight, Bunny Gets Paid, Jimmywine Majestic, and their self-titled LPs, all on color vinyl exclusive (which is exclusive to this edition).

Blue vinyl, part of UMe's Respect The Classics reissue campaign.
– Hyaena LP (Scarlet)
Hyaena is so thoroughly permeated by its jazz influence that it often sounds like a group of jazz musicians approaching metal, as opposed to the more familiar opposite. There's certainly a great deal of surface complexity throughout this album. First, it often favors the sort of off-beat syncopation and polyrhythm over 4/4 beat type of percussion popularized by Meshuggah and sons. Secondly, Sadist crams in a great deal of synthesizer and sample presence, including plenty of 'tribal' percussion that probably synergizes with the lyrical/visual aspects of this album. What begins to tip me off that this might not just be a mess of pseudo-progressive tropes is Sadist's adept understanding of modulation and tonality – unlike many bands that play around with it, they actually manage to use this to write more flexible riffs and build some of the changes into their song structures. That is definitely not a mere surface strength." – Death Metal Underground
– Battering Ram 2xLP+2xCD (UDR)
Limited Edition HQ-180gm double vinyl LP pressing box set in gatefold sleeve. Also includes CD plus a bonus live CD
Saxon Over Sweden 2011, taken from Saxon's Denim & Leather tour as well as a merchandise item. Legendary British heavy metal quintet Saxon's 21st studio album, Battering Ram, boasts a clinically 'heavy' echo of their glorious New Wave Of British Heavy Metal sound.

>Jake Shimabukuro

>Six Organs Of Admittance
– Hexadic II LP/Cassette (Drag City)
Hexadic II simultaneously explores the same charts and paths that gave birth to its predecessor, while creating music of a totally different order. The Hexadic II songs have direct correlates to the Hexadic songs, yet are much more than mere acoustic versions. Think of them as distant cousins to the songs on Hexadic, obsessed with Greek choir, the desert, and the sea.

Skillet – Rise [2013] LP (Atlantic)

– Thicker Than Water (A Film By Jack Johnson And The Malloys) [2003] LP (Republic)
For his
Thicker Than Water soundtrack, Jack Johnson stitched together an organically focused, acoustic-centered collection that would seem as welcome on a shady creek bank as a sunny, wave-lapped beach. Johnson offers up an acoustic take of his sophomore album's "Holes To Heaven" and the sprightly instrumentals "Moonshine" and "Cove," while longtime associate G. Love duets on the spare, rootsy "Rainbow." Love and band Special Sauce also contribute the even grittier instrumental "Hobo Blues" and laconic "Honor And Harmony."
– Soft Party LP (Telephone Explosion)
Thirteen lethal detonations running the spectrum from impenetrable down-tempo filth-jams to high velocity speed-punk.

>JD Souther
– Tenderness CD (Masterworks)

>Kelley Stoltz
– In Triangle Time LP (Castle Face)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Silver-tongued songsmith and true American treasure Kelley Stoltz presents a 2015 collection of instant classics with just a hint more synthery than 2013's
Double Exposure. For those not yet in the fan club, Kelley is like a Ray Davies/Brian Wilson/Tom Petty power pop Cerebus from another dimension where well placed tambourines, handclaps, and wry observations are a universal language. Criminally under-appreciated, Kelley's face should be on Amoeba-bucks for his contributions to the pop canon-the black-lipstick-smeared stand-out and lead-off track "Cut Me Baby" could be his walk-on music for the acceptance speech.
>Sublime with Rome
– Sirens LP (BMG Rights Management, LLC)
Released last July on CD – now available on vinyl.
Sirens is the sophomore full-length album from Sublime with Rome. Co-produced by Paul Leary and Rome, the 11-track effort follows the band's 2011 debut, Yours Truly. Sublime with Rome features original Sublime bassist Eric Wilson, vocalist and guitarist Rome and drummer Josh Freese. HQ-180gm.
>Tropic Of Cancer
– Stop Suffering 12"+MP3 (Blackest Ever Black)
Tropic Of Cancer
– Archive: The Downwards Singles 12"+MP3 (Blackest Ever Black)
Stop Suffering is first music to emerge from Camella Lobo's Tropic Of Cancer project since her 2013 debut album, Restless Idylls. The towering, time-stopping title-track is the culmination of her work to date; rarely does an arrangement so sparse exhibit such grandeur. The three original songs from Tropic Of Cancer's two 10"s on Downwards, The Dull Age/Victims (2009) and Be Brave (2011) (now both out of print and highly sought-after), are collected on Archive: The Downwards Singles with new artwork by Silent Editions. An artifact of a time and a place that can never be revisited or relived. The ultimate post-punk, post-techno death-disc.

>John Coltrane – Coltrane's Sound [Reissue.1964] 2xLP (ORG Music)
Recorded during the same three-day period as
My Favorite Things in the fall of 1960, Coltrane's Sound is one of the most highly underrated entries in Coltrane's voluminous catalog. The title could not have been more accurate, as each of the six pieces bear the unmistakable and indelible stamp of Coltrane's early-'60s style. Animating the arrangements on these sessions were Coltrane (soprano/tenor sax), Steve Davis (bass), Elvin Jones(drums), and McCoy Tyner (piano). This classic recording finally receives the ORG Music audiophile treatment with this HQ-180gm double LP 45rpm reissue, mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany. Each copy of this limited edition release is numbered with a gold foil-stamp.

>Soundtrack – Natural Born Killers [Reissue/1994] 2xLP (Interscope/UMe)
Most soundtracks simply feature the film's incidental music or songs that were heard in the background throughout the movie. Not
Natural Born Killers. Assembled by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), the soundtrack to Oliver Stone's brutally warped serial killer saga recreates the hallucinatory feeling of the film. The soundtrack includes tracks by Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, L7, Nine Inch Nails, Bob Dylan, Cowboy Junkies, Dr. Dre, Duane Eddy, Juliette Lewis, Patsy Cline, Peter Gabriel with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and others.

Affiliates of La Grande Triple Alliance Internationale de l'Est posse, Krine (Headwar), Arnelle (The Dreams) and Solene 9Dudu Geva) add their own reverbed idiosyncrasies to post punk akin to Liliput/Kleenex, chanting in indecipherable Italian, mock German and plain French, not unlike three priestesses offering voodoo enchantments.

Birthday Suits
– Spin The Bottle: Adult Party LP (Recess)
The Minneapolis two-piece play something in the vein of garage rock, but with a ballsy and crafty 'serious' musicianship that's as unkempt as The Stooges but alternately as precise as AC/DC.

Black Panties
– The Future 7" (Windian)
While his alter ego may spend time playing gigs with Midwest proto-punks Lumpy & The Dumpers, Black from Black Panties real talent shines when he dons the mask and gets behind the mic. Herein are four raging thrash punk anthems about isolation and aggravation, with seething guitar tones and enough energy to get you out of the house and burn down your city.

Neko Case

Cerrone – Give Me Remixes 2xLP+CD (Because Music)

Give Me Remixex is something of a tribute to his prolific discography, containing incredible remixes by Dimitri From Paris, The Reflex, L'Impératrice, Sacha Mambo, Alan Braxe, Joey Negro, Frankie Knuckles, Kevin Saunderson, A-Trak & Codes, and Get A Room!.
– Backwards 2xLP (Cold Spring)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. After the groundbreaking release of 1990's
Love's Secret Domain album, Coil were not dormant; their main project was Backwards, which was started in 1992, updated considerably between 1993 and 1995, and transferred in 1996 to New Orleans, where it was finished at Trent Reznor's Nothing Studios. The album saw the fruition of Jhonn Balance's recent vocal-coaching, which produced haunting, passionate vocals while reaching new heights. Now, in 2015, 23 years after it's initiation, these tracks have been beautifully preserved by Danny Hyde and are finally available in highest quality audio. Vinyl due November 13.
John Coltrane
– Coltrane's Sound [Reissue.1964] 2xLP (ORG Music)
Recorded during the same three-day period as
My Favorite Things in the fall of 1960, Coltrane's Sound is one of the most highly underrated entries in Coltrane's voluminous catalog.

The record is often considered one of the classic albums in electric jazz. HQ-180gm vinyl reissue.
– Please Please Leave 7" (Chocolate Dancer)
Dancer – Rootbeer Station 7" (Chocolate Dancer)
"Dancer must have dug up the grave of Johnny Thunders and drank his heroin-infused blood to be this f**king rock and roll. San Francisco's best rock and roll band."

Hongthong Dao-Udon
- Bump Lam Phloen: Essential Hongthong Dao-Udon LP (EM)

Miles Davis
– Monterey Jazz Festival, 1963 LP (Jambalaya)
Recorded September 20, 1963, at the Monterey Jazz Festival, this set featured Miles Davis's new quintet, with George Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams. This group, minus Coleman and with the addition of Wayne Shorter, would soon go on to make some of the most highly regarded jazz LPs of all time. This smoking set features a wonderful rendition of "So What," among others. Essential live jazz classics.

– Kumamoto 7" (Jacktone)
Dechirico is a new project from Adam Douglas, also known as Kemek, Kemek The Dope Computer, and Deeper Than Space. The guiding rhythm for Dechirico is Klaus Dinger's Neu! beat, and eighth note motorik pulse that is sublimely perfect in its driving precision. Dechirico is an attempt to update that motorik sound using modern production methods while still maintaining the spirit of the original records.

Dirty Ghosts
- Let It Pretend LP (Last Gang)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. "Any time a punk band starts experimenting, that's the era of the band that I love," remarks Dirty Ghosts guitarist and songwriter Allyson Baker while discussing the genesis of
Let It Pretend, the band's sophomore effort for Last Gang. Lead-off track "Some Kids" leaps from the speakers with tribal drums, a loping bassline and the clatter of a kicked over beer bottle. The tune spotlights Baker's plaintive vocal melody and an earworm chorus over layers of echo-soaked, interlocking guitar. Nodding to the downstroke-heavy rhythms and ethereal textures of The Stranglers and The Police on "Battery" and the pulsing, synth heavy title track, Baker shows off a spare six-string approach that places each slashing chord and ringing note with deadly economy and accuracy. Though tracks like "Light Like Speed," "So Shallow" and the ferocious "Cataract" bear the unmistakable imprint of pioneering synth-punk acts like Devo and Baker's avowed cornerstone influence Chrome, the latest Dirty Ghosts effort places an elevated focus on nuanced songcraft and pop melodies carried by her growing confidence as a lead vocalist.
DJ Medhi
– Lucky Boy [Reissue/2006] LP+CD (Ed Banger)
Gatefold LP edition, with CD included, of the 2006
Lucky Boy album by DJ Mehdi (1977-2011). Born and raised in Paris, DJ Mehdi began producing for major French hip-hop artists in 1995, and went on to release highly successful albums with his bands Ideal J and 113, remix various electronic acts, compose soundtracks for many French and international films, and collaborate with MC Solaar and Daft Punk. Lucky Boy was his second solo album, following 2002's (The Story Of) Espion. Lucky Boy's single, "I Am Somebody," features vocals from Canada's finest, Chromeo.
Drone Electric Lust/La Morte Young
- La Morte Young/Drone Electric Lust LP (Pica Disk)
Christian Malfray's crackling hot electronics meet the tape manipulation and processed guitar of Pierre Faure and Thierry Monnier on the La Morte Young side. Eric Lombaert's modest percussion provides a smattering of rhythm and Joelle Vinciarelli wails like Mike Patton over a John Zorn skit. Drone homage becomes dooming chaos. On the flip, Drone Electric Lust shuffle their feet, so to speak, with accordion-styled electronics and barely awakened jazz drums. The chaos of Kjell Runar Jenssen, Lasse Marhaug, Per Gisle Galoen and Fredrik Ness Sevendal is a seemingly quiet one that gets abstracted with impossible-to-follow guitar f**k-ups before retreating into busy, tinkering ambiance.

Duran Duran
– Notorious [Reissue/1986] 2xLP (Parlophone)
Limited double HQ-180gm vinyl LP pressing of the fourth studio album by Duran Duran. Produced by the band with Nile Rodgers, the album showcased a new musical direction for the band, emphasizing bass and brass as exemplified by the singles "Notorious" and "Skin Trade."

– Boyz-N-The-Hood [Reissue/1987] 12" (Priority/UMe)
Boyz-N-The-Hood is the debut by Eazy-E as a part of N.W.A. Ice Cube was 17 years old when he wrote the track and took it to Eazy-E. A short time later, Eazy and Cube formed N.W.A with Dr. Dre, and included this song on the N.W.A. And The Posse album. Eazy-E released yet another version of the song the following year on his 1988 solo album, Eazy-Duz-It. This reissue is part of UMe's Respect The Classics campaign.
Mathias Eick
– Skala [Reissue/2011] LP (ECM)
Mathias Eick's intensely melodic trumpet occupies the center-stage in this album of self-penned tunes which will appeal to an audience beyond jazz. Against the powerful backdrops offered by his sleek, modern band, driven by two drummers, he delivers richly lyrical soliloquies.

Esplendor Geometrico
- Selected Tracks 1. 1992-1998 4xLP (Geometrik)
Esplendor Geometrico formed in Madrid in 1980 and went on to become an international cult act and one of the most influential pioneers of industrial music. This set contains four LPs packaged inside a special deluxe box and individually screen printed using a metallic copper ink. The four covers, when put together, make up a main image. The box set also includes a poster. The LPs feature a selection of tracks recorded between 1992 and 1998, a period during which the EG sound evolved thanks to the digital synthesizers available at the time. The group developed a singular style of industrial music that incorporates techno-esque elements, hypnotic rhythms, and tribal influences.

Hans Essel
– Saitensack LP (Edition Telemark)
Long-time improv and foundational musician's "string-bag" develops new ways of playing the violin and viola. With an approach more stripped down than other experimental violinists such as Tony Conrad and Takehisa Kosugi, Hans Essel does not modify or amplify his instruments. Strings are not pressed by fingers but rather damped. Only through bowing are they excited to complex free vibrations, sometimes harsh and noisy, at other times reminiscent of uilleann pipes with cracking and breaking like in yodeling.
Saitensack focuses on the origin of tones out of the noise, zooming into the very character of string instruments. Side A features an overtone-rich performance from 1994. Side B has a harsher 1999 recording.
– Phased Out 12" (12xU)
A single note wrassles with manual techno via heady doses of tabletop manipulation.

Fossil Aerosol Mining Project
– The Day 1982 Contaminated 1971 LP (Helen Scarsdale Agency)
Dissociated fragments from nearly lost genre films of the 1970s reconstituted, filtered by scratched celluloid, bad splices, dropouts, and damaged control tracks. Within piles of reversed tape loop miasma and time-lag accumulation, Fossile Aerosol Mining Project's mesmerizing and hypnogogic studies of uncanny dislocations magnify grit and errors. Re-assembly of the materials—often culled from 35mm film and quarter-inch magnetic tape found in abandoned drive-in movie theaters and warehouses—interweaves ready-mades with their own disintegration. Jacket has fragment of 1970s intermission film affixed.

Jan Garbarek
– I Took Up The Runes [Reissue/1990] LP (ECM)
There's a stately splendor in much of this 1990 recording, whether it's infused with a broadening calm or a welling tension as Garbarek synthesizes his disparate inspirations into frequently compelling music. Mari Boine Persen, a Lapp singer, contributed the first tune, an evocative musical call that summons Garbarek's frequent use of folklore, an element that's further developed by singer Ingor Ántte Áilu Gaup on the traditional song "His Eyes Were Suns" and his own "Rahkki Sruvvis."

Marvin Gaye
– Volume Two: 1966-1970 8xLP (Motown)
Volume One released earlier this year, this is a collection of Marvin Gaye's next eight studio albums on HQ-180gm vinyl. During this period, Gaye scored hits such as "It Takes Two" with Kim Weston, plus numerous duets with Tammi Terrell including "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Your Precious Love," "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing," and "You're All I Need to Get By." In 1968, Gaye's "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," became his first to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The eight LPs are: Moods Of Marvin Gaye, Take Two (w/ Kim Weston), United (w/ Tammi Terrell), In The Groove, You're All I Need (w/ Tammi Terrell), M.P.G., Easy (w/ Tammi Terrell) and That's The Way Love Is.
- Na Mele a Ka Haku (Music Of Haku) [Reissue/1975] LP (EM)
Synthesizers and the human voice. Hawaii. The 1970s. Haku, aka Frank Tavares, a writer and musician, had a deep respect for the multiethnic character of his native Hawaii, and composed a number of theater pieces and songs to highlight this culture. However, he avoided many of the standard musical tropes, choosing to build his own studio and make all the music on synthesizers, a first for Hawaii. New age musical elements, traditional Hawaiian music, and unclassifiable madness, all played on glorious analog synths, are the foundation for songs and stories delivered in Hawaiian, Japanese, and English, reflecting Hawaii's multiethnic nature. Developed and recorded over several years, released in 1975 on vinyl, and woefully hard to find, it is now reissued for the first time.

Hand Of Dust
– Like Breath Beneath A Veil LP (Avant)
Dark folk rock extended with martial stomps, semi-acoustic guitars drenched in reverberation, and throbbing, vibrant bass lines. The fertile Danish trio's fistful of apocalyptic ballads, pregnant with tragedy and unavoidability, march onward with a solemn gait toward god knows where. With 16-page lyrics booklet.

Screamin' Jay Hawkins
- I Put A Spell On You: Rare Tracks And B-Sides LP (Jambalaya)
A comprehensive collection of the early, pre-debut LP singles from one of the most controversial frontmen of early rock and roll. With his classically-trained bass-baritone singing voice, Screamin' Jay Hawkins conjured up ghoulish images both on stage and on his records. Hawkins, evoking voodoo images and using bone-rattling sound effects, simultaneously entertained and bewildered rock 'n' roll fans. This collection features his all-time classic "I Put A Spell On You," along with a batch of hard-to-find classics from his Okeh Records days.

Heavy Breathing
- Airtight LP (Electric Cowbell)
Heavy Breathing, from Washington DC, have essentially been around for fifteen years. The core trio: Erick Jackson, handling the axes, from bass to guitars; Jeff Schmid, the drummer, who has now moved center stage; and Amanda Kleinman, playing synths and organs, made six records as The Apes, with three different vocalists; they then solved their singer problems by changing their name to Heavy Breathing and using found sounds from the World Wide Web in lieu of the old, clichèd human singer.
Airtight is their second record as Heavy Breathing, and their Black Sabbath-inflused riffrock is in a business funk suit with party calls coming from the Rhythm Machine, Erick's guitars galloping, Jeff's drums thumping four all over the floor, and Amanda's keys playing Jon-Lord-alongside-BernieWorrell.
Tim Hecker
- Norberg/Apondalifa LP (Room40)
In 2015, Room40 celebrates 15 years of editions and events; as part of the celebrations, the label is reissuing a number of editions in various formats that are out of print. One of these editions brings together two of the pieces the label had the pleasure to publish by Tim Hecker. These two works were both created in conjunction with Hecker's visits to Australia and were released in limited quantities. The 2010 7" edition of
Apondalifa basically vanished upon release. It was also originally split across both sides of the record. On this edition, cut by the wondrous Lupo at Calyx, the piece is available on vinyl for the first time in it's extended format. Norberg was originally released in 2007 as a 3" CD; Room40's original description reads, "Recorded at the Norberg Festival (Sweden) amidst the mineshafts and cluttered buildings strewn throughout parts of the city, this 21-minute live piece summarizes much of what makes Tim Hecker's music so vital and compelling."
– Dromomania LP (Joyful Noise)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Members of Duster, Built To Spill, Love As Laughter evoke the simplicity of '70s Kinks, combined with a good dose of Captain Beefheart and the randomness of The Residents. Third-wave hardcore influences meld with elements of Neu-like trance rock.

– The Infernal Storm [Reissue/2000] LP+MP3 (Relapse)
The Infernal Storm is one of a litany of classic, essential death metal titles on Relapse Records. This classic album is available for the first time in 15 years on vinyl. They redefined the bounds of brutality and blasphemy for death metal and has long been heralded as one of the heaviest and most uncompromising metal bands in the world.
Jacques Le Coque
- Tip Of My Tongue 7" (Windian)
Hailing from Stamford, Connecticut, Jacques Le Coque play Replacements-style garage pop with a very Velvet-y Underground warmth on the master mix. "... [JLC's] well-balanced, rough, raw, fuzzy rock n' roll. Bouncing from Built to Spill-style tracks, to surf rock and straight-up punk, these guys are the perfect house-party band. Listening to their songs, I can practically feel an elbow to the ribs and a PBR being spilled on my shoes."—The Deli

– Cross [Reissue/2007] 2xLP+CD (Ed Banger)
Cross isn't a collection of random dancefloor singles. Cross is for listening at home or in clubs. Cross is a link between pop at its purest and experimental music. Cross brings together hardcore elements and cheese. Cross makes the goths link arms with the rave kids. A generational manifest, ideally positioned on the side of the dancefloor, Cross, insolent with youth, is a testimony that the French electro scene is healthier than ever.

Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The third album from Kowloon Walled City finds the San Francisco band at its artistic peak, having moved even further from its sludgy, post-hardcore origins toward a sparser, sadder yet still de-tuned heaviness.

– Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance [Reissue/1980] LP (Glitterbeat)
Laraaji's glistening album
Ambient 3: Day of Radiance has from the beginning been considered an outlier. Though widely celebrated at the time of its release in 1980 -- as the third installment of Brian Eno's emerging ambient music series (Ambient 1-4) -- the album also brought with it an aura of mystification. Where did it fit in? An uncharted synthesis of resonating zither textures, interlocking, hammered rhythms and 3-D sound treatments (courtesy of Eno) Day of Radiance seemed to push open many doors at once, ambient music being only one of them.
Maciunas Ensemble
– 1976 LP (Edition Telemark)
Two previously unreleased pieces recorded December 19, 1976, performed by Paul Panhuysen, Remko Scha, Jan Van Riet, Leon Van Noorden, and Hans Schuurman. "This music is literally polyphonic," explains René van Peer in the liner notes, "A composition of multiple voices. The members of the ensemble do not engage in virtuoso playing. Although each may go down his individual path, no one attempts to outdo the others in exuberant soloing. Their approach to improvisation bears none of the hallmarks of jazz. It is a group effort. They operate as a band in the anthropological sense: a small, mobile, and fluid social formation without clear-cut leadership."

Majical Cloudz
– Are You Alone? LP+MP3 (Matador)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
Are You Alone? is the follow up to Majical Cloudz' Impersonator; a heart-on-white sleeve statement of intent that brought Devon Welsh and Matthew Otto from the Montreal underground onto arena stages, critics' year end lists and the hearts and minds of thousands. After the journey they've returned with Are You Alone? Armed with little more than the recording equipment used on Impersonator, Majical Cloudz enlisted friends and family (including Owen Pallet) for only the subtlest of studio embellishment. The record, however, immediately sounds bigger, at once more intense and more immediate -- Welsh's voice has evolved from baritone proclamation to a sweeter, almost yearning, croon.
Menstruation Sisters
– Glass Walking LP (Pica Disk)
Early recordings by the infamous Australian noise duo Oren Ambarchi and Nik Kamvissis, with producer Anthony Maher assisting and performing on some tracks. Fans of the group's later material, after Brendan Walls had joined, for example, will be struck by the almost total absence of drums and guitars, and the prominence of electronics and vocals—revealing the missing link between Hanatarash, Maurizio Bianchi and the monkeys in the Evolution Revolution. This is noise music history in reverse. Also includes the first Menstruation Sisters live concert, a ferocious and glorious performance nine-and-a-half minutes long.

Pat Metheny Group
– Pat Metheny Group [Reissue/1978] LP (ECM)
Pat Metheny Group – American Garage [Reissue/1979] LP (ECM)
Pat Metheny Group – Offramp [Reissue/1982] LP (ECM)
Pat Metheny Group is a jazz fusion band founded in 1977 around a core nucleus of guitarist Pat Metheny and keyboardist Lyle Mays. The line up has frequently changed over the years, but other long term members include bassist Steve Rodby and drummer Paul Wertico. The groups first three studio albums have been reissued on HQ-180gm vinyl by ECM.

– Kill The Whole Cast LP (FDH)
A tasteful blend of the sound of Buzzcocks, Wire, The Statues and even some Mind Spiders with the catchy and sharp, yet laconic guitar work and the melancholic and demanding undertone of Wipers, Masshystery or The Vicious, plus some electro-synth/no-wave-punk of The Units or even The Spits.

– No Doy [1996] LP (Brookvale)
moe. – Tin Cans & Tires [1998] LP (Brookvale)
First time on vinyl. To the uninitiated, moe. Is just another jam band. Like the Grateful Dead, Phish, and Dave Matthews Band before them, moe. fuse elements of rock, jazz, blues, country, and funk into their sound.

Mr. Oizo
– Lambs Anger [Reissue/2008] 2xLP+CD (Ed Banger)
"French DJ and producer Quentin Dupieux (aka Mr. Oizo) offers more of his distinctive and eccentric take on electronic dance music with this album. ... less stylistically aggressive than its immediate precursor,
Moustache (Half A Scissor), but it still offers a suitably bent approach to dance music, taking the sound and style of traditional club music and bending it into new shapes with distinctive sounds and melodic structures" -- AllMusic. Features contributions from Carmen Castro, Errorsmith, and Uffie.
– Crab Rangoon [Reissue/1997] LP (Asian Man)
Originally released in 1997,
Crab Rangoon is the definitive MU330 album, and one of the few third wave ska records from that era to truly stand the test of time. The big trombone-driven hooks are reminiscent of the Specials, while the personal lyrics and wistful melodies give Pinkerton a run for its money. Clear green vinyl.
– A Cosmic Serenade LP+CD (Hapna Sweden)
Joel Danell aka Musette has carved a niche for himself with a sound world merging both the most ancient and the newest of the new. Hip-hop, polka, novelty music and sound tracks all go down in the blender.

– Aquarius LP (Sige)
Oakeater is the Chicago trio of Alex Barnett, Seth Sher, and Jeremiah Fisher.
Aquarius is Oakeater's second full length and eighth release over all. They have released records with other labels such as Nihilist, Hydra Head Records, and Dead Accents. The members of Oakeater have also or currently play in bands/groups such as Panicsville, Barnett & Coloccia, Ga'an, The Coughs and Hide.
Augustus Pablo
– Rockers International [Reissue/1979] LP (VP)
Augustus Pablo – Rockers International 2 [Reissue/1979] LP (VP)
Reissues of the historic 1979 Augustus Pablo albums from the Greensleeves catalog on vinyl. Augustus Pablo was a Jamaican roots reggae and dub record producer, melodica player and keyboardist, active from the 1970s until his death in 1999. He popularized the use of the melodica (an instrument at that time primarily used in Jamaica to teach music to schoolchildren) in reggae music. Augustus is often regarded as one of the most important artists in reggae and dub.

Paul Panhuysen
– Pendulum Change Ringing LP (Edition Telemark)
The first vinyl LP edition since 1986 by this Dutch sound and visual artist contains a recording of the installation from Pand Koloniale Waren in Hasselt, Belgium, in 2012—which consists of twelve engraved Turkish metal platters mounted onto a black plastic bin, placed in a row twenty meters long, the rim of each of which is struck by a metal pendulum operated by tiny electromotors. Since the lengths of the arms of the pendulums are different, interlocking rhythmic patterns of the resonations don't stay the same. The rich sound texture full of dissonant overtones is not chaotic, yet its regularity is hard to comprehend. With photos of the installation and liner notes by René van Peer.

– All We Know Is Falling [Reissue/2005] LP (Fueled By Ramen)
Vinyl reissue of the Tennessee alt-rock band's debut album.

Charlie Parker
– The Complete Savoy Dial Recordings 10xLP (Savoy)

– The Hurrah LP (Otoroku)
The Hurrah is the second recorded outing from the universe-shifting free jazz trio of Evan Parker, John Edwards, and Chris Corsano. This trio has been playing together for since 2006, sometimes expanding into quartets with the likes of Noah Howard, John Russell, Joe McPhee, John Coxon, and Paul Dunmall. The material on this LP was recorded by James Dunn at Cafe OTO in London on August 22, 2014, during Corsano's four-night residency. All material recorded live; no editing or post-production.

– Monastic Living 12"+MP3 (Rough Trade)
Monastic Living is a new limited edition 12" EP from Brooklyn garage punks Parquet Courts and their first new music since the pair of acclaimed 2014 releases Sunbathing Animal and Content Nausea. Featuring artwork by band member Andrew Savage
– I, No Longer LP (Bad Timing)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Vinyl due November 13. "[
I, No Longer] sees the band combining the best of early 2000s emo (Taking Back Sunday and Spitalfield come to mind) with the anthemic hooks of western New York contemporaries like Polar Bear Club and Such Gold. The result is 12 introspective, well-produced pop punk songs that reassert the band three years after the disaster surrounding its first record." – Noisy (Music By Vice)
Professor Longhair
– Hadacol Bounce LP (Jambalaya)
Fusing diverse elements of blues, barrelhouse boogie-woogie, funk, and gospel with mambo, rhumba, and second-line street parade rhythms, Professor Longhair's contribution to today's musical vocabulary is immeasurable. You can't listen to Fats Domino, Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, James Booker, or Huey Smith without recognizing the unique "Fess" imprinting. This compilation of B-sides, rarities, and alternate takes, recorded between 1949 and 1957, honors one of the great and unique talents in rock and roll history.

Purple Seven
– Garden Eyes LP (Salinas)
The second proper-full length from this Bloomington, IN trio.

Gabriel Saloman
– Movement Building 2 LP (Shelter Press)
Over the past few years Gabriel Saloman has developed a reputation for releasing penetrating works of haunting beauty in his new role as a solo performer and composer. Known for his part in the seminal electronic-noise duo Yellow Swans (alongside Pete Swanson), Saloman has taken the sweeping drones and fried electricity of his former band and embedded them within an expanding pallette of bowed strings, martial percussion and resonant piano.

– Color Blind LP (Pure Noise)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Seaway is a five-piece pop/punk band from Oakville, Ontario Canada. The band recently finished up a successful run on the 2015 Vans Warped Tour.

– Viva Diaspora LP (Essay Recordings)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Cosmopolitan, globetrotter, paprika bambaataa, constantly in search of new sounds: Shantel gracefully turns pop-cultural clichés and conventionally-accepted genre-definitions upside-down. Viva Diaspora is strongly inspired by the creative anarchy of crisis-ridden Athens, Greece.
Viva Diaspora has no intention of jumping onto the crossover-and-remix bandwagon. It is bold, risky, and self-assured; this is how acoustic, traditional, and Mediterranean songs sound today and this is how they can come into their own in a contemporary party context.
The Silkworm
– It'll Be Cool [2004] LP (Touch & Go)
Founded in 1987, Silkworm were: Andy Cohen (also in Bottomless Pit, and Mint Mile) on various stringed instruments with frets, Michael Dahlquist on drums and cymbals and occasional guitar, and Tim Midgett (Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile) on bass and other guitars. With the core members in place,

War Of Words is the classic debut album by Singers & Players, a loose collective featuring top Jamaican deejays Prince Far I and Jah Woosh, plus members of the Arabs and Roots Radics. The mic is dominated on the record by the sweet vocals of cover star Bim Sherman. War Of Version collects four outtakes from War Of Words, all recorded in 1981.

– Kill Bill Vol. 1 [Reissue/2003] LP (Maverick)
Soundtrack – Kill Bill Vol. 2 [Reissue/2004] 2xLP (Maverick)
Two Tarantino movie soundtracks are back in print on vinyl.

– Natural Born Killers [Reissue/1994] 2xLP (Interscope/UMe)
Most soundtracks simply feature the film's incidental music or songs that were heard in the background throughout the movie. Not
Natural Born Killers. Assembled by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), the soundtrack to Oliver Stone's brutally warped serial killer saga recreates the hallucinatory feeling of the film. The soundtrack includes tracks by Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, L7, Nine Inch Nails, Bob Dylan, Cowboy Junkies, Dr. Dre, Duane Eddy, Juliette Lewis, Patsy Cline, Peter Gabriel with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and others.
State Champs
– Around The World And Back LP (Pure Noise)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Keeping in fashion with their previous releases,
The Finer Things and the EP, Overslept, the five piece continues to play captivating and addictive pop rock.
Superhuman Happiness
– Escape Velocity LP (The Royal Potato Family)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Superhuman Happiness create music for a dance party inhabited by the emotionally complicated. Led by Stuart Bogie—a perpetually in-demand songwriter, arranger and performer whose resume includes stints with Arcade Fire, David Byrne, Iron & Wine, TV On The Radio and Antibalas—the Brooklyn-based ensemble construct instantly infectious and relentlessly rhythmic records that makes bodies move. Underlying the groove, however, are lyrical concepts that take a long look at the human condition. Their latest LP,
Escape Velocity, is a seven-track effort that explores how human made technologies inversely shape our internal emotional landscapes.
– Alone LP (Out Here)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
Alone was born out of a need to maintain sanity in times of broken dreams and lies. It might be Terakaft's most rock-oriented album to date, but at the same time it is their most poetic. While their 2010 album Aratan N Azawad, and even their 2012 follow-up, Kel Tamasheq, found them still full of hope, in 2015 the soil that was supposed to blossom is burnt by selfishness and rivalry. There are too many characters in the picture, too many chiefs and not enough people," says member Diara when asked about Mali's political development since the group's last album. He used to sing political songs in the days in his rebel youth, when he was still playing guitar with Tinariwen. Since then he has begun to watch a new feeling growing inside him: ténéré, which translates to "alone."
Tiger Hatchery/Paul Flaherty
– Live In New Haven LP (Ergot)
Ben Baker Billington, Mike Forbes, Andrew Scott Young and Paul Flaherty bring the heat to fire music.
Live In New Haven documents four purveyors of the ecstatic now convulsing as one, with the labyrinthine saxophone mutations of Forbes and Flaherty squirming against the brink of the Billington-Young skins'n'strings throb unit. Despite the volcanic nature of the session, the quartet exhibit a sage capacity for both restraint and an elevated plane of almost-composed melodicism, "tracing a jagged pathway of legible melodic interplay," as noted by Tiny Mix Tapes, "that breaks off at a moment's notice into freefall runs of conjoined squalling."
– Futura Grotesk [2014] LP (Hands In The Dark)
Tomaga – Familiar Obstacles LP (Hands In The Dark)
Futurist Grotesque is a collection of minimalist compositions by former members of The Oscillation, Sh!t N Shine, Neon Neon, Riame, Voice Of The Seven Thunders, and Luke Roberts. Darkly psychedelic, elusive and deeply imbued with curiously unsettled images. On Familiar Obstacles, Valentina Magaletti and Tom Relleen's sprawling assemblage of twenty-eight feverishly divergent compositions from an unconscious interzone, fusing studio experiments, field recordings, and tonal spectra into something that by turns resembles musique concrete, imaginary soundtrack and library music.
Mick Travis
– Face Disappears After Interrogation 12"+MP3 (Midwich)
Mick Travis's
Face Disappears After Interrogation is a raw and severe experiment in modular synth, rhythm box and tape echo. Deceptively simple pulses oscillate from ear-to-ear forming head-nodding, brain-scrambling rhythmic patterns that could loosely be described as 'techno'.
Various Artists [Charles Maurice]
– AOR Global Sounds 1977-1982 LP (Favorite)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. A compilation of eight forgotten and rare tracks produced between 1977 and 1982 in all parts of the globe. At the end of the '70s, many artists all over the world were deeply influenced by such AOR stars as Steely Dan and their classic
Aja LP and strove for the same attention to sound production and detail; this specific West Coast style mixed with pop rock standards, soul, disco, and jazz influences. From Erik Tagg in the Netherlands and Ulla in Poland to Diane Tell in Quebec and Nohelani Cypriano in Hawaii, Charles Maurice has found a real link between these great songs and artists in their music clearly infused with this special AOR touch. Fully remastered from the original versions. A must-have for rare-groove collectors. Also includes tracks by Junior Mendes, Loredana Berte, Placa Luminosa, and Paul Hart.
Various Artists [Logan Sama]
– FabricLive 83 4xLP (Fabric)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Logan Sama has been at grime's forefront since the genre's inception, helping the careers of Wiley, Dizzee Rascal, Skepta and hundreds more. Far from a traditional DJ mix,
FabricLive 83 is an intricately curated album featuring contributions from luminaries and future stars of grime. Sixty-six MCs including Novelist, Meridian Dan and Ghetts, to name but a few, lay exclusive acapella bars over twenty-four expertly-mixed, brand new instrumentals from the likes of Wiley, Jme and Preditah.
– Temporal Relics LP+MP3 (Midwich)
Viands is a spontaneous collaboration beteween two auteurs of Detroit's underground music scene: Joel Peterson and David Shettler (Moon Pool and Dead Band).

Wang Chung
– To Live And Die In L.A. [OST/Reissue/1985] LP (Geffen)
Original soundtrack to the 1985 motion picture. The
To Live And Die in L.A. soundtrack is Wang Chung's third album and second on Geffen Records. Instead of following up on the success that Points On The Curve landed them, the band switched gears to produce an original motion picture soundtrack. The switch allowed for them to experiment with different styles of music from the conventional pop music on their previous album. Released in 1985, only the album's title song made it on the US Billboard Hot 100. Includes "Wake Up Stop Dreaming," "Wait" (which first appeared on Points On The Curve album) and more.
The Winery Dogs
– Hot Streak 2xLP (Loud & Proud)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. You know what they say: Familiarity breeds creativity. Just witness the aptly named
Hot Streak, the supercharged follow-up to the self-titled rabidly rocking 2013 debut of the three-piece musical dynamo known as The Winery Dogs. Hot Streak shows the powerfully pedigreed trio's initial burst of collective chemistry was no accident, from the sturm und headbang of "Captain Love" to the propulsive uplifting vibe of "The Bridge" to the introspective acoustic harmonic convergence of "Fire." Colored vinyl.
Lizz Wright
– Freedom & Surrender 2xLP (Concord)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The new album from this acclaimed vocalist is a mixture of newly written songs and covers, sitting at the crossroads of soul, jazz, and gospel. Produced by Larry Klein,
Freedom & Surrender features collaborations with some great writers such as Larry Klein, David Batteau, Maia Sharp, JD Souther, Toshi Reagon, and Jesse Harris. The album also includes a duet with Gregory Porter on the track "Right Where You Are."
Dwight Yoakam
– Come On Christmas [1997] LP (Rhino)
Come On Christmas is the eighth studio album, and the first Christmas album by Dwight Yoakam. It was originally released in 1997 on Reprise Records and peaked at #32 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. Includes holiday originals as well as Yoakam's unique versions of yuletide classics such as "Silver Bells," "Here Comes Santa Claus," "Silent Night" and more.
Marek Zebrowski & David Lynch
– Polish Night Music [2007] 2xLP (Sacred Bones)
Barren train stations, Polish factories at night, and silent hotels where lonely travelers meet. These are the images and suggested narratives that pervade the spirit of
Polish Night Music, the musical collaboration between filmmaker David Lynch and Polish concert pianist and composer Marek Zebrowski. Zebrowski and Lynch first met during the Camerimage Film Festival in Lodz, Poland and started to work together during the organic evolution of Lynch's Inland Empire. Originally, Zebrowski served as a translator for the shooting of several Lodz-based Polish scenes in Empire, but upon discovering their shared interest in musical experimentation and improvisation, Lynch invited Zebrowski to his Los Angeles studio to participate in a series of musical experiments. From these initial collaborations, inspired by their unique and distinct connections to Poland, emerged a tangible mood and distinctly modern texture that became Polish Night Music.
Hans Rudolf Zeller
– Hans Rudolf Zeller LP (Edition Telemark)
Various elements of this seldom-released composer's work collected, which often involves combinations of multiple dimensions (texts, vocals, visual projections), into one cinematological literature. The recordings here were made within the last 10 years, yet many of the underlying concepts date back to the 1960s or 1970s. Contained are two scriptophonies (combining writing and vocals, with the notion of writing being extended à la Carlfriedrich Claus and Gerhard Rühm), two vocal improvisations, one piece of Tesa sounds (produced by adhesive tape), and one piece for horn.

This Week’s Vinyl Exclusives:
William Alexander
– Strangest Things LP (Yellow K)
Recorded in his Fullerton, CA bedroom, these dusted songs are kaleidoscopic prisms of William Alexander constantly in motion, grounded by hip-hop indebted beats and stoned atmospherics. Floating somewhere above it all are Alexander's haunting vocals, which usually seem to be either coming from another room or disintegrating into nothing, sounding effortless, cool, apathetic, patient, and fed up all in the same breath.
Strangest Things is a dazed, weirdo pop record in a (hang) loose sense, but its strengths lie in its singular and unique delivery.
All Time Low
– Nothing Personal [2009] LP (Hopeless)
White vinyl edition of All Time Low’s third album. RIYL: Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, New Found Glory, All American Rejects, Paramore.

Gene Autry
– The Original Gene Autry Sings Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer [Reissue/1967] LP (Varese Sarabande)
What is generally a dollar bin classic has been, for some reason, repressed on red vinyl for 2015.

Azealia Banks
– Broke With Expensive Taste 2xLP (Prospect Park)
Released last March on CD – now available on vinyl. "
Smile, Chinese Democracy, Detox – the pop music world has never been a stranger to the frustration of the delayed album release. New York rapper and singer Azealia Banks’ Broke With Expensive Taste could have easily earned its own pedestal in such a dubious pantheon. Since she first took music blogs, dorm rooms, and block parties by storm in 2012 with the joyously vulgar earworm 212, Banks has become mired in so many Twitter feuds and record-label publicity flaps that the release of her debut album seemed increasingly unlikely by the month. Instead, she has now presented us with one of the most explosive and intriguing hip-hop releases of the year. We should hardly be surprised — Banks has always demonstrated a precocious talent for confounding expectations." – Pretty Much Amazing
Basement Benders
– Lydiad LP+7"+MP3 (No Idea)
Chattanooga, TN indie pop/punk band Basement Benders features members of Future Virgins, Hidden Spots, This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Jack Palance Band, and Black Rainbow. First pressing on colored vinyl with bonus 7".

Incredible solo front-porch blues, remastered from the original tapes and pressed in a one-time edition of 500 copies.

– Evil Triumphs Again LP (Hell’s Headbangers)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. "This is the sort of vile, primitive metal I often seek – eager to taste that corroded, metallic guitar sound which speeds along with high doses of distortion attached. These satanic curses and whips lash hard against the backdrop of a squalid bass and fast-paced, murky drum sound; all complementing one another like some wretched creation of Mendes and rounded off by that Quorthon (Bathory) – like bark and puke." – Metal Forces Magazine

James Booth
– Human Rites 12" (100% Silk)
Mancunian producer James Booth holed up in various Hulme flats and half-studios with nothing but an old iMac to craft the six lushly overcast house designs comprising his vinyl debut,
Human Rites.
R.L. Burnside
– Sound Machine Groove LP (Sutro Park)
Recorded by folklorist David Evans in 1979 and 1980, these are R.L. Burnside’s first recordings with electric guitar and also his first with a band. That band was The Sound Machine, a band he literally created himself out of members of his own family, blending raw Mississippi blues with soul, funk, R&B, contemporary beats and other urban flavors to make a marvelous amalgam of his own. Blue vinyl.

Calibro 35
– S.P.A.C.E. LP (Record Kicks)
New album from this legendary Italian cinematic funk combo.

– Carroll LP (E1)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Carroll's exercise in writing perfectly eff’d up pop gems yielded an LP that sounds like a pop approach to writing heady, woozy, psychedelic rock.

Casey Veggies
– Live & Grow LP (Epic)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. New release from the Los Angeles rapper. Casey Veggies started out as one of the founding members of the hip-hop supergroup Odd Future before he decided to strike out on his own at age 14 after the release of his first mixtape, 2007's
Customized Greatly Vol. 1. That same year, he formed the popular street wear brand Peas & Carrots International (PNCINTL), and his grassroots approach to marketing has helped him build a loyal following. Live & Grow includes the single "Backflip," featuring YG and Iamsu!.
– Far Away So Close 12" (100% Silk)
San Fran rave loyalist Chelsea Faith aka Cherushii centered her second EP around its title track, which feels like some Balearic brunch dream-jam floating in the ether off the pier of a Mediterranean isle – swooping coastlines, seagulls, liquid sky sax (courtesy of jazz multi-instrumentalist Marcia Miget), sex surfer acid.

– Death, Doom And Destruction [Reissue/1997] 2xLP (Hell’s Headbangers)
A culty name in American death metal, Cianide has stuck to their guns for over 25 years, patiently building a canon that's unrivaled in its consistency and trend-free philosophy. Theirs is a metal of death that's simple, straightforward, and effectively primitive: blunt-force trauma informed by Hellhammer and Chicago forebears DeathStrike, but with a sewer-dredging atmosphere all its own.

Phil Collins
- My Heart's In My Hand, And My Hand Is Pierced, And My Hand's In The Bag, And The Bag Is Shut, And My Heart Is Caught. 2xLP (Shady Lane Productions)
(Not to be confused with the popular Genesis drummer who launched a multi-platinum solo career and starred in a pretty cool episode of
Miami Vice in '85). Material from the Turner-nominated artist's 2013 project created from anonymized phone conversations of guests of Cologne's Gulliver homeless shelter that were then shaped into original songs by an international group of musicians. Contributors include: David Sylvian, Laetitia Sadier, Damon & Naomi, Demdike Stare, Planningtorock, Pye Corner Audio, Peaking Lights, Scritti Politti, Maria Minerva, and more.
Chris Cornell
– Higher Truth 2xLP (UMe)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Produced by Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young),
Higher Truth displays the Soundgarden frontman’s constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman telling human stories which transcend musical genres. His fifth album, Higher Truth was inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles.

The Drifters
– Under The Boardwalk [Reissue/1964] LP (Rhino)
A little history lesson: The session to record "Under The Boardwalk" was scheduled for May 20, 1964, but The Drifters lead singer Rudy Lewis was found dead that morning (the cause of death is unclear, but likely either a drug overdose or heart attack). The session was rescheduled for the next day, and Johnny Moore was called in to replace Lewis. Moore was with The Drifters in 1958 when their manager fired everyone in the band and brought in new members. He was a convenient replacement for Lewis, and stayed on as their main vocalist. The group was distraught over Lewis' death, and their subsequent performance added a tinge of melancholy to the song, which is about spending some time under a seaside Boardwalk with a love interest, out of sight from the crowds above.

- Les Chateaux De La Loire LP (BTF)
Ellesmere is the brainchild of Roberto Vitelli, bass and guitar player from Italian prog band Taproban. As opposite to the bombastic sound of the band, with Ellesmere, Vitelli focuses on an acoustic and yet symphonic approach, delivering a stunning 40-minute suite much in the style of early Genesis and Anthony Phillips works (ref.
The Geese And The Ghost). As the title suggests, every section of the suite is dedicated to one of the ancient French castles that reside along the Loire river. Several acoustic, classical and 12-string arpeggiated guitar layers are topped with beautiful strings and flute melodies, and an original vintage Mellotron provides further orchestration.
The Fire Dept.
– L’oeuf D’or [Reissue/1995] LP (M’Lady’s)
A true underrated and ready to be re-discovered gem; Fire Dept. (out of Cambridge) burn it down on both sides of this (their debut) album, lost in time and packed with ace songwriting, molten guitar playing, and covers of bands that are still unknown to squares in this so-called sophisticated age which we now find ourselves.

Fabio Frizzi

Another killer score to a gorehound classic on HQ-180gm vinyl for the first time.

– Sleepy Kids LP (Tiny Engines)
Somewhere between the art punk of Blonde Redhead and Sonic Youth, the classic indie rock of The Pixies and The Breeders and the attitude of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Haybaby impatiently reside. The band also sprinkles a little bit of sludge and noise pop into the mix and balances their raw energy with deceptive and captivating melodies.

Thee Headcoats
– Brother Is Dead… But Fly Is Gone! [Reissue/1998] LP (M’Lady’s)
Incendiary covers set from Thee Headcoats, wherein they take a walk with the ghosts of all manner of punk standards. Remodernist takes on the Clash, Buzzcocks, Johnny Moped, Electric Eels, ATV, Small Faces, Bo Diddley, and many more.

The Horrible Crowes
– Elsie [Reissu/e2011] LP+MP3 (SideOneDummy)
Most know Brian Fallon as the frontman for the Gaslight Anthem, an act who started out in Jersey basements and slowly built their way up to headlining New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Despite the success Fallon has had with his main band, he's always loved decidedly less rocking acts such as the Afghan Whigs and Tom Waits. The Horrible Crowes -- his side-project alongside longtime friend Ian Perkins -- is his lounge-friendly tip of the hat to the acts who have shaped another side of his musical vision.

Jack + Eliza
– Gentle Warnings LP (Yebo Music)
Released in August on CD – now available on vinyl. "Jack + Eliza’s debut LP
Gentle Warnings brings all the heat and fuzz of Best Coast to New York, free of their lyrical chains, while adding a spritely complexity more explicitly west coast in its musical influence, in particular, that California classic, The Beach Boys. Jazzed harmonies ('Oh No’ featuring nigh-replicas of Brian Wilson’s) are only the beginning of what the sunshine pop-rock duo evokes." – In Your Speakers
Jack Ketch And The Crowmen
– Brimfull Of Hate [Reissue/1988] LP (M’Lady’s)
Jack Ketch And The Crowmen was a one-off group, with Billy, Bruce, and Bertie out of the Milkshakes. Brutal basement executioner styles abound here, dark songs from a dark place. Incredible and mysterious, not surprising for a group named after Britain's most infamously inept hangman. For the believers.

Red Red Meat
– Red Red Meat [1992] 2xLP+MP3 (Jealous Butcher)
Red Red Meat – Jimmywine Majestic [Reissue/1993] 2xLP+MP3 (Jealous Butcher)
In Chicago in the early '90s, combustible rock outfit Friends Of Betty, led by songwriter Tim Rutili, collapsed and reconfigured itself as Red Red Meat. In 1992, the band released its self-titled debut on its own Perishable Records imprint.In 1993 Red Red Meat released its first record for Sub Pop,
Jimmywine Majestic. Building on the grungy roots of the band's self-titled debut, the second album was more confident and refined, with songwriter Tim Rutili's impressionistic lyrics hovering over twangy steel guitars, thick fuzzbox riffs, and barroom drums. The record finds the band (Rutili, Brian Deck, Glenn Girard, and Tim Hurley) moving away from the thrashing noise of the first record into more nuanced territory, maintaining its menacing swagger but injecting more space into the grooves. Double vinyl LP pressing featuring four bonus tracks, two of which are previously unreleased.

See Through Dresses
– End Of Days LP (Tiny Engines)
See Through Dresses have crafted a catalogue of songs indebted to classic post-punk and new wave artists of the '80s, but their sonic footprint more closely resembles the textural treatments of '90s dream-pop and shoegaze.

Severed Heads
– Petrol [Reissue/1986] 12" (Dark Entries)
Dark Entries digs deeper in to the archives of Severed Heads, one of the longest surviving bands to emerge from the Australian post-punk independent music scene. They began in Sydney in 1979, incorporating elements of 'industrial’ noise-generation, tape cutting and looping and electronic sound synthesis. As the project developed song-structures and vocals were employed in a more-or-less recognizable mutant electro pop style. In 1986 the band released the 12" single
Petrol on Nettwerk Records.

Sunflower Bean
– Show Me Your Seven Secrets LP (Fat Possum)
Colored vinyl. "The third track on Sunflower Bean’s debut EP is a revealing introduction to the New York band’s sound. 'Tame Impala,’ a dizzying, Sabbath-like tribute to Kevin Parker’s band, is the record’s most immediate song and has bassist and singer Julia Cumming yelping 'You always say what’s on your mind’ over heavy riffs. (Tame Impala’s 2012 album
Lonerism included a bonus track called 'Led Zeppelin’). The other five songs more than justify the buzz around the trio (completed by guitarist Nick Kivlen and drummer Jacob Faber), melding wandering psych with glimmers of metal and post-punk. 'Somebody Call A Doctor’ is largely instrumental, Kivlen’s chiming guitars wrapping around Cumming’s dancing bassline, and 'OK Mr Man’ has a glint of Joy Division to its whirling noise. Astonishingly good." – NME
– Sugarwater LP (Exploding In Sound)
Swings is a trio of old friends who sound like an indie rock band coated in teeth-rotting pop hooks timed to asymmetrical, loose jazz rhythm. Hailing from Washington, DC, the band knowingly avoids the stifling nostalgia that permeates less memorable acts. Despite recently entering their twenties, Swings display a feverish prolificacy, endlessly shedding stayed sonic shells before they become safe and stale.

Other album guests include Slim Twig (DFA), Ben Cook (F**ked Up, Young Guv), Amanda Crist (Ice Cream) and Tony Price.
