Cuba: Reissue [White Vinyl]
$17.98  14.98
The Silos' Cuba has become something of a low-flying classic since its release in 1987. The band's brand of rock & roll qualifies as pre-Uncle Tupelo alternative country, highlighted by the addition of Mary Rowell's violin. While songs like "Tennessee Fire" and "She Lives Up the Street" have given the Silos a reputation for rock & roll, they also excel with gentler ballads. The acoustic "Margaret" is one of the album's best moments, highlighted by an acoustic arrangement and Dave Pearlman's steel guitar.

Time Bandits [Movie]
Time Bandits [Criterion Collection]
$39.95  35.96
A young boy joins a group of renegade dwarves on an unpredictable journey through time in this humorous fantasy. Monty Python animator Terry Gilliam mostly achieves a tricky balancing act in his second feature as sole director, creating a dark, irreverent comedy disguised as a family adventure. Particularly amusing are the boy's encounters with various historical figures, including an entertainment-starved Napoleon Ian Holm, a powerful Agamemnon Sean Connery, and a surprisingly stuffy Robin Hood, embodied by Gilliam's Python cohort John Cleese. Episodic by nature, the film is less successful when dealing with the larger narrative, which concerns the pursuit of the dwarves and their time-traveling map by the Supreme Being. However, the combination of Gilliam's visual exuberance and the witty script by Gilliam and Michael Palin ensures an entertaining, if erratic, journey.

Mark Ronson
Uptown Special
$11.96  10.96
Uptown Special is Ronson's most inventive and vibrant work to date. Taken as a whole, the album is inspired by his musical beginnings. As a teenager growing up in New York City in the early 90s, Ronson gravitated towards hip-hop, funk, soul and R&B. Those were the records he lugged around in boxes in the early days of his club DJ career and that scratchy, inspiring vinyl was what he returned to when creating the album.

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear. It finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of 2011’s Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again (with the help of Pete “Sonic Boom” Kember), rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing concoction he refers to as “the soup.” Old school hip-hop textures and production techniques meld with the intuitive, cyclical melodies he has become known for, for a sound that is at once dense and playful.

Billy Childish is an international cult figure, painter, poet and novelist. He has released over 120 independent albums and influenced a vast range of musicians . His latest band is CTMF. Billy’s description of their sound holds true - “the sound of yesterday, tomorrow” Acorn Man is arguably one of Childish most accessible LPs, showcasing Childish's love of punk rock and beat. Traces of dirge and the The Fall mingle effortlessly with unbounded pop on tracks such as 'It's So Hard to be Happy.'

Its even more diverse than normal as they have built more confidence and fearlessness to widen their influences further. Melody and aggression will always be an important side of what they do, but with this album there was also a concerted effort to concentrate on texture too. Alongside the core of our guitar, bass, drums, electronics set-up, there s so much new instrumentation and orchestration. Writing for and recording woodwind, brass and strings was so rewarding and really felt like it brought a new dimension to the music.

Further Out, the anticipated debut full length from the reclusive Indiana trio Cloakroom, can be defined best as an exploratory sonic mission. From the album’s opener, “Paperweight,” the crushing force of a wall of distorted bass and pounding drumming collapses to uncover the airy, reverb-soaked vocals of guitarist Doyle Martin, who’s carrying a sullen burden that seems just as weighed down.  

Viet Cong
Viet Cong
$14.98  12.98
Recorded in a barn-turned-studio in rural Ontario, the seven songs that make up Viet Cong were born largely on the road, when Flegel and bandmates Mike Wallace, Scott Munro and Daniel Christiansen embarked on a 50-date tour that stretched virtually every limit imaginable. Close quarters hastened their exhaustion but also honed them as a group. You can designate records as seasonal, and you can feel Viet Cong's bleakness and declare it wintry. But the only way you get a frost is when there's something warmer to freeze up.  

Jeremy Pelt
Tales, Musings and other Reveries
$16.98  13.98
Jeremy Pelt stands as a strikingly unique musician, his work consistently sleek and polished yet bristling with the spirit of invention flourishing in a lean, modernist language influenced by classic bebop phraseology. He delivers his lines with authority and economy, the pinpoint accuracy of his tone well-suited to the heightened elegance of his delivery. With pianist Simona Premazzi laying down the changes and Ben Allison's bass lines, Jeremy is joined by the twin drums of Billy Drummond and Victor Lewis for a session of originals, standards and music by Wayne Shorter and Clifford Jordan.  

Sick Feeling
Suburban Myth
$12.98  11.98

Perfect Pussy
I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling
$13.98  11.98
Just over a year after playing their first show as a band, Perfect Pussy have quickly made a name for themselves as one of the most intense bands in the indie rock and hardcore punk communities, both live and on record. Their fast rise to success all stemmed from this 4 track demo EP, originally released as a cassette only. Simply title tracks such as “I” and “IV” earned praise from everyone to Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, to NPR and the New York Times, landing the on countless year end lists.  

Universal Togetherness Band
Universal Togetherness Band
$15.98  13.98
Between 1979 and 1982, The Universal Togetherness Band tracked unearthly portions of their sprawling songbook for bewildered students in Columbia College’s audio engineering program. Storming the gates of Chicago’s premier recording studios, the erudite party band explored permutations of soul, jazz-fusion, new wave, and disco with little regard for studio rates or the availability of magnetic tape. Universal Togetherness Band captures the brightest, never-before-heard moments from this visionary group’s 5-semester recording bender.  

Strange Wilds
Standing+2 [Vinyl Single]
Strange Wilds formed in Olympia, WA in 2012. “Standing” is a taut, churning slice of Northwest punk for the ages. B-sides, “Gator Cough” and “Never Warm”, are, respectively, a fist-banging slammer and a slow-burn rumination on low feelings. Strange Wilds’ music is soaked in the deadpan gloom endemic to their home region. Tense, quick and tight, Strange Wilds make anthems for the anxious. Shards of Bleach-era Nirvana, splinters of Jesus Lizard, even a little Born Against. This single was recorded at High Command Studios in Olympia, WA by Captain Tripps Ballsington (Nudity, Sex Vid) in 2014.  

G Stands For Go-Betweens (Vol. 1) [Box Set]
$167.98  151.18
G Stands For Go-Betweens (Vol. 1) documents the band’s origins in four LP, four CDs and an 112-page book, featuring photos and extensive liner notes. This volume documents them from 1978 to 1984 with vinyl re-pressings of their first three studio albums (Send Me A Lullaby, Before Hollywood & Spring Hill Fair). It also collects their early 7” output on a fourth LP entitled The First Five Singles. Additionally, the set comes with four CDs of rare and unreleased demos, radio sessions and a complete live concert radio broadcast from 1982.  

Alex Calder
Strange Dreams
$14.98  12.98
Alex Calder’s sophomore release with Captured Tracks is as familiar as it is foreign - brining together both infectious melodies and texture to create tidy, acid-induced pop sequences. Strange Dreams takes a confident step forward from Calder’s previous release and brings the focus and ambition of Alex’s songwriting to all aspects of his music. This record delivers, while still maintaining the youthful humour that has become his trademark.  

Amen Dunes
Cowboy Worship [Vinyl EP]
$15.98  13.98
Amen Dunes' Love took close to a year and a half, 16 musicians, and five different studios to complete. It was a song cycle that required broad experimentation before it was clear what was essential underneath the surface. In that process, much of the sound that might have made it onto the album was lost. There was just too much to say for one record. Cowboy Worship is an attempt to give life to some of the music that didn't make it past the scalpel.  

$15.98  13.98
Siskiyou returns with Nervous, a majestic album of carefully constructed art rock built around songwriter and lead singer Colin Huebert's stacked acoustic guitars and intimate, whispery vocals. Siskiyou's sound has been previously dubbed a sort of 'Northern Gothic', conjuring cold winds and the life-saving warmth of temporary shelters and tiny hearth fires. With Nervous, the band continues to push beyond the crisp lo-fi intimacy of its early work, and has forged its most confident and finely-crafted recording to date.  

Elephant Micah
Where In Our Woods
$11.98  10.98
For the past 14 years, Elephant Micah's Joseph O'Connell has quietly self-released his music, sometimes collaborating with the psych-folk imprint Time-Lag Records or other very small labels. Despite the project's almost secretive status, Elephant Micah has repeatedly caught the attention of NPR, and has been championed by an impressive cohort of like-minded artists including Jason Molina, Hiss Golden Messenger, Dark Dark Dark, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.  

Doug Paisley
Until I Find You [Vinyl Single]
Two new songs from Doug Paisley. The A-side is a haunting duet with Bonnie "Prince" Billy. B-side is the more spiritual and uplifting "Everything Is Made". Limited to 700 copies.  

12 Rods
Lost Time [Vinyl]
$17.98  14.98
It’s been 12 years since the initial release of what would be the very last album by the late Minneapolis-based 12 Rods. Aptly titled, Lost Time, this last epic perfectly defines and captures how great this band was and how truly ahead of their time it’s members were.  

Hailu Mergia
Musicawi Silt b/w Tche Belew [Vinyl Single]
Musicawi Silt is the best known Ethiopian song from Addis Ababa's golden era of 1970s pop music. The insistent drive of the rhythm and the mighty blast of the horns - a sublime, angular burst - are unmistakable. Hailu Mergia's concept for the Walias first LP "Tche Belew" was to include compositions by various band members. Since Girma Beyene, a member of the Walias, wrote this addictive song in the mid-70s and the Walias band began including it in their sets, it has spread around the world, receiving cover treatments by bands of all kinds.  

Marcus Marr
Brown Sauce [Vinyl Single]
$11.98  10.98
DFA is pleased to announce the long-awaited followup to Marcus Marr’s acclaimed 2013 single “The Music”. A music obsessive all his life, Londoner Marcus Marr’s first encounters with dance music were acid house records which augmented his vinyl collection of rock and soul, and attending all night parties under Brixton’s St Matthews church. Traveling to the south of England to watch DJ Harvey play a lengthy set, he saw the kind of power a DJ can wield over a willing crowd.
