Atomic Bomb Band

We never knew when we put out an album of the music of the late William Onyeabor that William had never performed live - though we did know he had no interest in doing it now. So we thought we should put together a band to play his music live. What an amazing time it's been. It's been so enjoayable that we thought we should document the group playing Williams music live in a studio. This document is not in anyway trying to compete with the amazing work that William Onyeabor did originally. This is a limited LP only edition which we hope you enjoy. Please welcome - The Atomic Bomb Band. Featured on this album: Jamie Lidell, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Luke Jenner (The Rapture), Charles Lloyd, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Ahmed Gallab (Sinkane), Jason Trammell, Ish Montgomery, Johnny Lamm, Jas Walton & Jordan McLean (Antibalas), Lekan Babaloa, Kofo the Wonderman, Felicia Douglas, & Ananda Kihiri.

Hold / Still Remix

New Vinyl: $21.98 Buy

Almost a year to the day from the release of Suuns' most-far reaching and creative record Hold/Still comes an album of remixes. Spanning an incredibly diverse range of artists and sounds, each one of these remixes takes the original track and twists and turns it into some very unique. The source material leant itself perfectly to a remix project - these are songs that are complex, layered, experimental. The remixes vary from the dancefloor fillers from the likes of Redshape or Marvin & Guy through to the ambience of Lee Gamble and Beatrice Dillon and the techno of VRIL, and shows Suuns as one of the most forward thinking and fertile bands around. Time to go and get lost. Comes as a double, colored, limited vinyl. 

01 Instrument - Redshape remix 02 UN-NO - Marvin & Guy Brown Eyes remix 03 Brainwash - Lee Gamble reconstruction 04 Translate - Dark Sky ‘Psych' remix 05 Paralyzer - VRIL remix 06 UN-NO - Marvin & Guy Blue Eyes remix 07 Translate - Dark Sky ‘Pressure' remix 08 UN-NO - Marvin & Guy Black Eyes remix 09 Infinity - Beatrice Dillon remix

Tribu Baharu

Electric Cowbell Records offer an exclusive Record Store Day limited-edition release 7” 45RPM  from Tribu Baharú, a Champeta criolla and World music band from Bogotá, Colombia. It's been denigrated and damned, boycotted and banned, but it can never be stopped: champeta, the ever evolving, high-energy hybrid of Columbian, African and Afro-Caribbean styles just keeps on coming. And leading a new charge are Tribu Baharú, barrelling out of Bogotá, championing their version of champeta, inspired by the legendary, street-shaking Pico sound-systems of Columbia's Caribbean coast. Sparkling Congolese guitar driven by high-speed bass and drums and the all-animating upfront singers. Champeta was swept away by the ubiquitous Reggaeton in the '90s but Tribu Baharú are part of a wave of nuevas musicas Colombianas based in the capital city who are reestablishing it as a prime force and adding more ingredients to the recipe. Contain traces of soukous, zouk, calypso, mbaqanga, soca, compa Haitiano, rap and ragamuffin. Essential ammunition for the globally-minded DJ.  Limited-edition of 500 pressed. 7” 45RPM on black vinyl. Comes in full-color die-cut sleeve with center hole and full-color label.

The Bevis Frond emerged fully-formed from the skull of British rock, and Pitchfork called it "A Cult Favorite".  This white vinyl reissue of the heavy third offering from Nick Saloman bursts with 60s-psych and includes epic track ""Tangerine Infringement Beak"" clocking in at nearly 20 minutes, "Into The Cryptic Mist" and "Lights Are Changing" a song that went on to be covered by Mary Lou Lord. A labour of love and fiercely independent, his prolific output has seen as many releases in as many years and an uncompromising vision under his own label Woronzow. Hailed as “a Hendrix devotee every bit as tough and contemporary as the serrated guitar chorales of Sonic Youth and Pixies” by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, his immense psych-stoner-rock has seen him become a cult figure in his own right. The Bevis Frond’s legion of loyal fans includes Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Mary Lou Lord, who have all covered his music.
