Big Come Up

Vinyl: $28.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

The Big Come Up is the debut album by the American rock duo The Black Keys, released in 2002 on Alive Records. It was produced by drummer Patrick Carney. As of 2012, the album had sold 139,000 copies according to Nielsen Soundscan. In 2005, music critic Chuck Klosterman singled out The Big Come Up as one of 21 "high-quality albums" from the previous three years. The song "I'll Be Your Man" was used as the theme song for the HBO series Hung. "I'll Be Your Man" also appeared on the FX series Rescue Me. Alive Records re-presses this album regularly, often several times a year on different coloured vinyl or with altered sleeve artwork. These are usually marketed as limited editions. As of January 2012, Alive Records had released The Big Come Up on vinyl on at least 14 separate occasions.

KINTSUGI, which follows 2011s GRAMMY® Award-nominated CODES AND KEYS marks Death Cab for Cutie s first new album since the departure last year of founding guitarist/keyboardist/producer Chris Walla. Recorded in Los Angeles with Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Interpol) behind the board, the album takes its title from the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, highlighting cracks rather than hiding them. As such, kintsugi represents a compassionate aesthetic philosophy in which damage and wear are embraced as part of an objects history.

The Last Shadow Puppets return with their new album Everything You’ve Come To Expect out April 1, 2016 via Domino. The album finds Alex Turner and Miles Kane reunited with James Ford (production and drums) and Owen Pallett (string arrangements) and joined by Zachary Dawes (Mini Mansions) on bass, recording the follow up to 2008’s The Age Of The Understatement at Shangri-La Studio in Malibu. Everything You’ve Come To Expect is a more open and expansive work than its predecessor, wearing its influences less obviously on its sleeve – by turns the album is soaring, snarling and breathlessly seductive.

Soul singer Charles Bradleys star has been on the rise since the release of his widely praised 2011 debut album No Time For Dreaming, and his ascent has continued long after the release of his triumphant second album, 2013s Victim of Love. Dubbed The Screaming Eagle of Soul, the singer is proud to present his highly anticipated third album Changes, on Daptone imprint Dunham Records. The album is named for his popular, smoldering (SPIN) cover of the Black Sabbath track. I think about the lyrics very closely when I sing Changes and get emotional, notes Bradley. It makes me think of my mother and the changes in my life since she passed away.

Victim of Love

Vinyl: $25.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $10.99 Download

Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release from the veteran R&B vocalist AKA the 'Screaming Eagle of Soul'. Bradley and writer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Thomas "TNT" Brenneck returned to Dunham studios and have recorded the most exciting Daptone release to date. On this album, Bradley moves past his "Heartaches and Pain" to the great promise of hope and love. Though quite at home among the music that has affirmed Daptone as the world's #1 authority on Soul Music, Victim of Love proves to be a genre-bending masterpiece, picking up where the early 70's Temptations left off and edging boldly forward into psychedelic soul exploration.

For Thee Sacred Souls, the first time is often the charm. The band's first club dates led to a record deal with the revered Daptone label; their first singles racked up more than ten million streams in a year and garnered attention from Billboard, Rolling Stone, and KCRW; and their first fans included the likes of Gary Clark Jr., The Black Pumas, Princess Nokia, and Timbaland. Now, the breakout San Diego trio is ready to deliver yet another landmark first with the release of their self-titled debut.

"Every step of the way has just been so organic," says drummer Alex Garcia. "Things just seem to happen naturally when the three of us get together."

Indeed, there's something inevitable about the sound of Thee Sacred Souls, as if Garcia and his bandmates - bassist Sal Samano and singer Josh Lane - have been playing together for a lifetime already. Produced by Bosco Mann (aka Daptone co-founder Gabriel Roth), Thee Sacred Souls is a warm and textured record, mixing the easygoing grace of sweet '60s soul with the grit and groove of early '70s R&B, and the performances are utterly intoxicating, with Lane's weightless vocals anchored by the rhythm section's deep pocket and infectious chemistry. Hints of Chicano, Philly, Chicago, Memphis, and even Panama soul turn up here, and while it's tempting to toss around labels like "retro" with a deliberately analog collection like this, there's also something distinctly modern about the band that defies easy categorization, a rawness and a sincerity that transcends time and place.

Their self titled debut album is out August 26th on Daptone / Penrose Records.

Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Everything Scatter, originally released in 1975, is one of several masterpieces from early in Fela's mid-1970s purple period. In three extraordinarily productive years, Fela released 20 some albums of new material. The purple period continued up to and immediately beyond the Nigerian army attack of February 1977 which destroyed Fela's self-governing commune, Kalakuta Republic. By the time Everything Scatter was recorded, Fela had put all Afrobeat's key elements in place: the signature rhythms he had developed with drummer Tony Allen; edgy, jousting tenor and rhythm guitars; call and response vocals; fat horn arrangements and extended, jazz-based horn and keyboard solos; politically confrontational lyrics; and, crucially, the Broken English Fela adopted to take his message beyond Yoruba speakers.

Just Mustard

Heart Under [LP]

Vinyl: $28.98 Buy

Video

'Heart Under', Just Mustard's second album, asks you to forget what you know. At every turn, this remarkable record reconfigures and stretches the ideas and ambition of a rock band, and turns a year of lockdown and personal struggles into a breathtaking artistic statement. The music the five friends from Dundalk, Ireland make is strikingly untraditional. Though to look at them, it appears that the band are a five-piece with uniform make-up of a vocalist, two guitarists, a bassist and a drummer, not a single one of them utilizes their instrument in a confined or regular fashion. Guitarists David Noonan and Mete Kalyoncuoglu make their six-strings shriek and wail, the sounds produced sounding like everything from whirring machinery to horror movie monsters. Behind them, drummer Shane Maguire uses the rim of his drums almost as much as the skins, providing a clattering, metallic backbeat. Most of the melodies on offer poke through from Rob Clarke's inventive, nodding bass lines. Then there's Katie on vocals; she's the transfixing focal point of the band. Across its 10 tracks, the album presents a coherent style and ethos ' those scything guitars, Katie's magical vocals ' but still incorporates a wide and untethered vision. There are brooding, atmospheric rock songs and others that apply a lighter, dreamier touch, all tied together with impeccable instrumentation and a united vision. 'Heart Under' serves as the next stage of this development, with every instrument brilliantly pushed to its limit and every boundary of the band stretched.

2013 reissue. Import vinyl LP. Irish DJ Richard James (a.k.a. Aphex Twin) got into the techno sound at it's very dawn. He soon became a master of the "ambient" techno sound, later inspiring many other artists. Many critics consider his double album "Selected Ambient Works 85-92" as his most seminal recording. More than just a thumping raver groove, intricate melodies woven into and around the beats keep the music anything but dull. Some of it's most noted cuts are "Tha," "Heliosphan," "Hedphelym," "Schottkey 7th Path" and "Delphium." In all there are 13 tracks on this 2-LP import. This version of "Selected Ambient Works 85-92" is a reissue.

Vinyl LP pressing. Augustus Muller and Jae Matthews' fifth release entitled 'The Runner (Original Soundtrack)' is not a traditional album. Rather, it is the soundtrack to a short film, also entitled 'The Runner'. The film, written, produced, and directed by the duo, is a searching horror film, attached to a meta-style 'documentary' about Boy Harsher's recording process. The album includes several distinct components: cinematic arrangements, vocal features, and of course classic Boy Harsher dark pop. 'The Runner (Original Soundtrack)' is exactly what's in the name: a soundtrack. At first the shape of the release was nebulous - yet once realized the album is dynamic. It serves as the story of the running figure and her musical accompaniment. Those expecting a traditional release will be surprised, but not disappointed.

Double purple colored vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. The biggest British psych find of the century! Think that's hyperbole? Well, of the 24 tracks on this collection, the only two to be previously issued on vinyl, "Beeside" b/w "Vacuum Cleaner," comprise probably the rarest and most highly prized single in '60s British rock, an original copy having sold for as much as $1600! Indeed, that single was the only recording officially released by Tintern Abbey, and only a small handful of skeletal demos have leaked out since; yet, their legend persists some 55 years later. Now, after two decades of planning, research, tape transfer and sound restoration, the full story of Tintern Abbey can at last be told. The 2-LP set Beeside-The Anthology unearths 24 tracks of music recorded by Tintern Abbey between the summer of 1967 (when they spent a month in a Cornwall cottage, rehearsing and taping their performances prior to their London launch) and the end of 1968. Alongside that genre-defining Deram single and those previously-leaked demos are some astonishing treasures. Among the highlights: the intended late 1967 follow-up 45 "Snowman" (a disorientating melange of sinister Mellotron, disembodied voices and backward tapes that was abandoned when original guitarist Don Smith left the group); the Arabic-sounding "My Prayer" and the SF Sorrow-anticipating "Let The Wind Blow," along with late 1968 creations like "Raspberry Ripple," "Life Goes By," and "My House," suggesting that, even at the point of their collapse, Tintern Abbey remained a vital, vibrant unit.

The Faint

Danse Macabre [LP]

Vinyl: $25.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Do you remember a time before the words “dance” and “rock” were linked by a hyphen and the synthesized sounds of the ’80s were a regular part of the modern musical landscape? The members of The Faint do, because they were there when it started to happen. In fact, you could even say they’re one of the main reasons it happened at all. The Faint's third full-length is filled with lyrics of death, betrayal, parlyzations, and murder. The 'macabre' subject matter is easily forgotten as Todd and Jacob's keyboards overdrive the vocals with hooky, synth lines, in addition to the ferocious drum machines, spastic outbursts of noise, and edgy tension that will have you shaking out to the dance floor. And if you have an opportunity to see them live, don't miss out. "With the band tossing about wildly amongst an array of bright, ashing lights and smoke machines, while nearly encircled by equipment, their live show is a must see." Or as Spin.com put it, "If you have never seen the Faint live, well, you're lame."

Perhaps the most immediately apparent characteristic of Memorial is its wide range of emotion. Vacillating from somber-yet-soaring melodies on one track to pummeling metal heft on the next, Memorial sounds like an album with split personalities. Where one song showcases guitarist Mike Sullivan, drummer Dave Turncrantz and bassist/keyboardist Brian Cook's mastery of lush melancholic melody, the next exhibits their most abrasive underground metal leaning sound, with washed-out 16th-note riffs and crushing rhythms. The band's penchant for endless hooks remains a constant, but Memorial embodies their most dramatic ranges in tone.

Flower Of Devotion

MP3 Album: $10.99 Download

"I want nothing more than to be alone," Emily Kempf sings early on Flower of Devotion, the third album by Chicago trio Dehd. It's a startling admission coming from a songwriter who, just a year ago on Dehd's critically acclaimed Water, wrote eloquently about the joys and pains - more than anything, the necessity - of love, compassion, and companionship. But then, "admission" isn't really the right word here, given the stridency of Kempf's tone. "Loner" is a declaration.

The record ups the ante on Dehd's sound & filters in just enough polish to bring out the shin­ing and melancholy undertones in Jason Balla and Emily Kempf's songwriting, even as it cap­tures them at their most strident. Balla's guitar lines at times flirt with ticklish cosmic country, while at others they reflect the dark marble sounds of Broadcast. Kempf, meanwhile, estab­lishes herself as a singer of incredible expressive range, pinching into a high lonesome wail, letting loose a chirping "ooh!," pushing her voice below its breaking point and letting it swing down there. When she and Balla bounce descending counter-melodies off one another over McGrady's one-two thumps, or skitter off over a programmed drum pad, they sound like The B-52s shaking off heartache.

What makes Flower of Devotion so impressive is how its creation seems to have strengthened its creators, both as individuals and as unit, even as they've stared down their own limitations. It's also striking just how much fun they seem to be having in the process. "It's okay to be lighthearted in the face of despair," Kempf says. It's a theme that runs through the album, from the opening back-and-forth build of "Desire" to the click-clacking chorus of "Haha," which finds them deflating their own history. Flower of Devotion was recorded in April and August of 2019 in Chicago. It will be released on Fire Talk Records on July 17th 2020.

The album was co-produced with Stewart Lerman (Last Man on Earth, I'd Rather Lead a Band) and Dick Connette, Loudon's partner on his Grammy-winning High Wide & Handsome. The orchestration varies from solo performance, to trio work with his longstanding musical cohorts, Chaim Tannenbaum and David Mansfield, to Nashville and Memphis-style big bands, to a full-blown string arrangement by Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Amos Lee, Paul Simon). On his latest, Loudon lives up to a legacy the New York Times calls "rich, complicated and often surprisingly dark," sounding as engaged and passionate as ever, richly displaying what NPR calls his "unmatched wit and wisdom." Loudon puts his most recent achievement in the context of a lifetime of music making this way: "When I made my first record for Atlantic in 1969. I was always saying, 'I want to make a voice and guitar record, and I want it to be a record, not only a recording, but a document that captures a moment.' I was 21 and very serious, and I thought I'd be dead in four years. So I wanted to make something that would last. A testament. Now, fifty years later, I guess I still want to make a testament.
