>Raymond Scott
– Soothing Sounds For Baby [Reissue/1963] 3xLP+MP3 (Music On Vinyl)
– Manhattan Research Inc. [Reissue/2001] 3xLP+MP3 (Music On Vinyl)
During Scott's career as a popular bandleader, there were reports of an alter ego - inventor, professor in the lab coat, electronic music pioneer. But little of this work received public exposure. That changed in 1997 with a reissue of Scott's 1963
Soothing Sounds For Baby (SSFB) trilogy. These albums, largely overlooked upon their original LP release, contained gentle, all-electronic sonic companions designed to calm and delight infants. In retrospect, however, Scott's pioneering and little-heard explorations of synthesized rhythmic minimalism and low-key ambience foreshadowed the subsequent conjuring of Terry Riley, Phillip Glass, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno. Most of Scott's works were performed on vacuum tube- and transistor-rigged music machines which he designed and built. Now, Music On Vinyl presents new editions of the Soothing Sounds For Baby and Manhattan Research Inc. on vinyl, each including full track notes, a historical overview, and newly designed covers. Limited triple 180gm color vinyl pressings.
This Week’s Vinyl Exclusives:
>Acceptance
– Colliding By Design LP+MP3 (Rise)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. New comeback album from the Seattle-based alt-punk band. Limited color vinyl pressing.

>Olivier Alary
– Fiction / Non-Fiction LP (FatCat)
Montreal-based Frenchman Olivier Alary is a highly talented composer, who has previously collaborated with Björk and released albums on FatCat and Aphex Twin's Rephlex label under the name Ensemble, Over the past five or six years Olivier has moved away from that song-based project to focus on composing material for a stream of films and artistic collaborations. As the album title alludes,
Fiction / Non-Fiction is a compilation of this film music, dating from the past five years, none of which has been previously released. Olivier's material here might sit somewhere among the likes of Jóhann Jóhannsson, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Stars Of The Lid, and Set Fire To Flames, while having the same masterly ear for sonic detail as Oneohtrix Point Never or Tim Hecker, but throughout the tracks are imprinted with Olivier's own, signature sound.
>Bestial Warlust
– Storming Bestial Legions: Live 1996 LP (Hells Headbangers)
Everything that made Bestial Warlust so deadly -- bulldozing heaviness, gnawing violence, hypnotic hatred -- is captured in its rawest, most red-eyed state here, making the album an indispensable component to any Bestial diehard's collection and a rare document of black/death primitivism in the pre-social media era.

>Craig Brown Band
– The Lucky Ones Forget LP (Third Man)
Detroit’s most beloved bartender, cook, and ping-pong champion has gone solo. Well, solo in the sense that he’s put a firecracker musical act together and called it The Craig Brown Band. The debut full-length album,
The Lucky Ones Forget, was recorded “almost live!” by Warren Defever (His Name Is Alive). It’s a long-player filled with songs about heartbreak, drinking, and vans—built upon the work of those daring punks who embraced country music (Replacements, Meat Puppets, Tom Petty, et al.).
>Deana Carter
– Did I Shave My Legs For This? [1996] LP (Capitol Nashville)
Vinyl debut of the 1996 hit album that contains the No. 1 hit and Country Music Award Single of the Year, “Strawberry Wine.”

>Jarvis Cocker/Chilly Gonzales
– Room 29 LP (Deutsche Grammophon)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Jarvis Cocker, former frontman of the famous Brit pop band Pulp and Canadian pianist/rapper/producer/composer Chilly Gonzales have teamed up for this exciting new project.
Room 29 was initially conceived as a theatre piece about the legendary room 29 of Hollywood hotel Chateau Marmont. Cocker wrote the piece during his own stay there, inspired by one of the room’s more unusual features – a baby-grand piano – as a witness of all the countless dramas that must have taken place within. The tales from the Chateau have become so legendary that anyone with even a passing interest in rock 'n' roll – or any facet of the entertainment industry for that matter – will have heard a Hollywood story related to the Chateau.
>Death
– Human [Reissue/1991] LP (Relapse)
Vinyl reissue of Death’s legendary fourth album. Limited metallic gold color pressing also available.

>Ramin Djawadi
– The Great Wall [OST] LP+MP3 (Milan)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Best known for his iconic scores to
Game Of Thrones and Iron Man, Djawadi has also provided the music for Warcraft, Pacific Rim and Westworld among countless other projects. His score to The Great Wall is sweeping and grand featuring rumbling drums, an army of strings and traditional Chinese chanting.
>Michael Giacchino
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 2xLP (Walt Disney)
Released last December on CD – now available on vinyl. Music from the recent
Star Wars spin-off.
>Gold Connections
– Gold Connections LP (Fat Possum)
RIYL: Car Seat Headrest, The Districts, Pavement, Modest Mouse, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Bright Eyes, Pinegrove, Built to Spill, The Walkmen. “...an animal of its own. Languid atmospherics give birth to howlingly aggressive rock ‘n’ roll that ultimately builds to a richly arranged climax.” – Stereogum

>The Ahmad Jamal Trio
– The Awakening [Reissue/1970] LP (Be With)
Vinyl reissue of this landmark deep trio session -- recorded in NYC and released on Impulse! In 1970. As a "Zen master of jazz piano" and one of its greatest innovators, Jamal evolved his elegant sound with this adventurous record.
The Awakening showcases his fast, richly melodic chops in remarkable variation.
>Dadisi Komolafe
- Hassan's Walk [Reissue/1983] LP (PMG)
This modal to slightly free jazz outfit from California takes the listener on a journey back to the late '60s and very early '70s, into the spiritual realms of greats like John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, John McLaughlin, and Miles Davis.

>Lagartijeando
– El Grand Poder LP (Wonderwheel Recordings)
Lagartijeando is the name of producer, musician and DJ Mati Zundel who was born, raised and currently living in a small town on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Strongly influenced by his travels through Latin America, Mati's signature psychedelic dance tracks latch onto everything from traditional folk sounds from the Bolivian altiplano to the jungle beats of Brazil. Mati hypnotically fuses his traditional influences (with an emphasis on shaman chant and charango loops) with contemporary electronic beats.

>Travis Linville
– Up Ahead LP (Cen)
There's something inexplicably authentic about Oklahoma's Travis Linville, and it's carried him from dive bars and classrooms to The Tonight Show and esteemed theaters and festivals across the globe. The Oklahoma Gazette rightly called him a “godfather of modern Oklahoma folk” and noted that his success opened doors for a state teeming with talent: a mentor and contemporary for other Oklahoma acts like Fullbright, Millsap, Turnpike Troubadours and John Moreland.

>Reba McEntire
– Songs Of Faith & Hope 2xLP (Nash Icon)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The country music vocalist’s new double-disc project highlights traditional hymns of faith throughout the first 10 songs while more contemporary tracks of hope round out the back half.

>Monster Movie
– Keep The Voices Distant LP+MP3 (Graveface)
New release from the alt-rock/shoegaze outfit. Limited color vinyl pressing.

>My Chemical Romance
– Welcome To The Black Parade (Steve Aoki 10th Anniversary Remix) 12” (Dim Mak)
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the “Welcome To The Black Parade” single, My Chemical Romance tapped Dim Mak label head Steve Aoki to breathe new life into the 2006 emo classic. Now available on a vibrant limited edition 12” picture disc, Aoki imbued his signature electro flair, keeping the vocals of Gerard Way intact in an amalgamation of new-school and old-school.

>Jean-Jacques Perrey
– Mood Indigo [Reissue/1970] LP (Vanguard)
Sonically adventurous,
Moog Indigo is a kaleidoscopic array of sounds delivered with imagination and a playful sensibility. Perrey's approach blends funk, lounge, and the avant-garde in a meticulously arranged tapestry of Moog, tape loops, and ondioline. An absolute must-have for vintage electronica heads, space-age pop enthusiasts, producers, audiophiles, and all fans of adventurous pop music. Audiophile quality 180gm pressing.
>Raymond Scott
– Soothing Sounds For Baby [Reissue/1963] 3xLP+MP3 (Music On Vinyl)
Raymond Scott – Manhattan Research Inc. [Reissue/2001] 3xLP+MP3 (Music On Vinyl)
During Scott's career as a popular bandleader, there were reports of an alter ego - inventor, professor in the lab coat, electronic music pioneer. But little of this work received public exposure. That changed in 1997 with a reissue of Scott's 1963
Soothing Sounds For Baby (SSFB) trilogy. These albums, largely overlooked upon their original LP release, contained gentle, all-electronic sonic companions designed to calm and delight infants. In retrospect, however, Scott's pioneering and little-heard explorations of synthesized rhythmic minimalism and low-key ambience foreshadowed the subsequent conjuring of Terry Riley, Phillip Glass, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno. Most of Scott's works were performed on vacuum tube- and transistor-rigged music machines which he designed and built. Now, Music On Vinyl presents new editions of the Soothing Sounds For Baby and Manhattan Research Inc. on vinyl, each including full track notes, a historical overview, and newly designed covers. Limited triple 180gm color vinyl pressings.
>Tall Ships
– Impressions LP (FatCat)
Following the release of their acclaimed 2012 debut,
Everything Touching, Tall Ships were championed by both the BBC and NME, selling out shows across the UK and headlining the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds Festival. Their debut earned a wealth of critical praise, with Pitchfork citing its penchant for "the more swashbuckling strains of Okkervil River and Modest Mouse, M83's downcast glimmer, and Sigur Ros' misty yawn," and BBC Music claiming, “the trio's debut displays dizzying craftsmanship.” Impressions bristles with a fresh intensity: it's a set that feels constantly on a knife edge of unpredictability, capable within a single song of being both disconcertingly tender and universal - easily the most ambitious and anthemic music the band has ever written, marking them out as one of the UK's most promising rock bands but one worn with the battle scars of doubt, fragility and lessons learned the hard way.
>Jack Tempchin
– One More Song LP (Blue Elan Records)
Released last year on CD – now available on vinyl. Jack Tempchin is known for penning some of the most durable tunes in American music for a variety of artists that includes the Eagles, George Jones, Glenn Frey, Randy Meisner, Glen Campbell, Emmylou Harris, Trisha Yearwood, Chris Hillman, Patty Loveless, Tom Rush, Kate Wolf, and many others. He's also co-written with a who's who of American roots, rock, country, and folk composers that embraces Tom Waits, J.D. Souther, Bobby Whitlock, Jim Lauderdale and Beth Nielsen Chapman.

>Tei Shi
– Crawl Space LP (Interscope)
Debut album from critically-acclaimed solo artist Tei Shi (born Valerie Teicher). The Argenine indie artist has toured with Grimes, Years & Years, Jungle, and Glass Animals. Past press features include W Magazine, Noisey, The Guardian, Spin, The Fader, and more.
Crawl Space was recorded over the span of a year and a half, and hears the singer documenting her transition from a “curious new kid on the block” to a “confident, self-possessed” artist. According to a press release, the record delivers a “palpable physicality” — from the claustrophobic space referenced in the LP title, to active song names like “Keep Running” and “Lift Me,” all the while evoking a feeling of moving forward through constraining situations and being able to center oneself.
>Brett Young
– Brett Young LP (Big Machine)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Good looks, honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed the “Caliville” style.

Thrash/death metal from Kansas City, MO.

>Arrested Development
- 3 Years, 5 Months And 2 Days In The Life Of… [Reissue/1992] 2xLP (Capitol)
Originally released in 1992 to widespread critical acclaim, Arrested Development’s debut album
3 Years, 5 Months And 2 Days In The Life Of… stood in stark contrast to much of the hip-hop around at the time. It helped them become the first rap group to win a Grammy for New Artist, and features hits like “Tennessee,” “People Everyday” and “Mr. Wendel.” Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the album has been reissued on double-vinyl.
>Julien Baker
– Funeral Pyre b/w Distant Solar System 7”+MP3 (Matador)
“Memphis, TN-based songwriter Julien Baker is the latest addition to the renowned Matador Records roster. The 21-year-old’s devastating, delicate, plaintive, vulnerable debut album,
Sprained Ankle (I could keep going with the adjectives, but really, ‘striking’ might be my favorite, as the music completely captivated us and left us no choice but to add it to our roster), which was released in 2015. A previously unreleased song ‘Funeral Pyre,’ is the title-track and A-side for Baker’s new 7”. Only Baker can make such a darkly macabre subject so heartbreakingly gorgeous, her signature hushed-yet- lofty vocals soaring over a quietly fingerpicked melody, crescendoing into layered, almost-orchestral beauty.
>George Barnes
– Country Jazz LP (Modern Harmonic)
Jazz-meets-country in an impossibly hot session circa 1959 -- a platter of lightning-fast picking and impeccable taste from the legendary musician.

>Califone
– Quicksand / Cradlesnakes [Reissue/2003] 2xLP (Dead Oceans)
In the summer of 2002, Tim Rutili and the rest of Califone had just come out of a busy year that included touring with
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot-era Wilco and collaborating with Issac Brock's alter-ego project, Ugly Casanova. With new creative energy unlocked, the band began work on the follow-up to their breakout full-length debut, Roomsound. The result, the much celebrated Quicksand / Cradlesnakes, brims with earned confidence. Here, Califone began to master the mix of blues, country and technical glitchery so oft-referenced today, all the while creating something timeless.
>Al Cohn Quintet
– Cohn On The Saxophone [Reissue/1956] LP (Modern Harmonic)
Al Cohn first sprung on the national scene as one of the saxophonists on the Woody Herman hit “Four Brothers,” a crazy arrangement of “Jeepers Creepers” featuring each “brother” on a wild-and-crazy swingin' sax solo. Along with fellow “brother” Zoot Sims, Cohn became one of New York's leading sax men, forming with Sims a quintet that played in the hot beatnik jazz scene of the day, even backing up Jack Kerouac on a few poetry recordings.
Cohn On The Saxophone finds our man Cohn taking the lead on a series of great jazz standards. Blue color vinyl pressing.
>Counting Crows
– August And Everything After [Reissue/1993] 2xLP (Geffen)
Counting Crows – Recovering The Satellites [Reissue/1993] 2xLP (Geffen)

Dead Can Dance – Aion [Reissue/1990] LP (4AD)
Dead Can Dance – Spiritchaser [Reissue/1996] 2xLP (4AD)
Vinyl reissues of DCD’s fourth, fifth, and seventh albums. This completes the recent vinyl reissue campaign of their classic 4AD back-catalog.

>Donovan
– Wear Your Love Like Heaven [Reissue/1967] LP (Speakers Corner)
Donovan's 1967 release
Wear Your Love Like Heaven is one of his brightest and most upbeat albums. Also released as the first half of the landmark two-CD box set A Gift From A Flower To A Garden, it finds Donovan in mostly electric mode, and taking an increasingly active production role that he would maintain for the rest of his career. In addition to its pristine original mono mix, this definitive LP edition boasts one of Donovan's most memorable cover designs, featuring a haunting infrared photograph of the artist by noted photographer Karl Ferris.
>Enya
– The Celts [Reissue/1986] LP (Reprise)
Born Eithne Ni Bhraonain, this classically-trained pianist was kid sister in the musical family that became Clannad, joining the Irish band in 1979 but dropping out amicably three years later to pursue her own muse. This music, produced in the mid-'80s as the soundtrack to a BBC series, was released as her debut in 1987 and promptly ignored -- yet its mix of atmospheric soundscapes and Enya's lush, layered vocals, sung in both English and Gaelic, is the template for her subsequent global hits, beginning with
Watermark the following year.
>Lee Fields & The Expressions
– Special Night Instrumentals LP (Big Crown)
Produced by Leon Michels and Thomas Brenneck, and brilliantly performed by The Expressions,
Special Night was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely to tape in three weeks at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios in Queens, NY. A sense of urgency, equal parts fun and inspiration, and a decent amount of beer and Jack Daniels were the driving forces during the sessions that produced Lee Fields & The Expressions latest offering.

Peter Gabriel – 2 [Reissue/1978] LP+MP3 (Real World)

Limited silver color vinyl pressing of the metal band’s debut album.

>Nikki Lane
– Highway Queen LP+MP3 (New West)
Limited picture disc vinyl edition. Nikki Lane’s third album
Highway Queen sees the young Nashville rebel emerge as one of country and rock’s most gifted songwriters. Produced by Lane and fellow singer/songwriter Jonathan Tyler, and recorded in Denton, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee, Highway Queen is an emotional tour-de-force. Blending potent lyrics, unbridled blues guitars and vintage ‘60s country-pop swagger, Lane’s new music will resonate as easily with Black Keys and Lana Del Rey fans as those of Neil Young and Tom Petty. Highway Queen starts with the whiskey-soaked restlessness of “700,000 Rednecks,” a rowdy call to action, and ends on the profoundly raw “Forever Lasts Forever,” where Lane belts freely, mourning a failed marriage – the “lighter shade of skin” left behind from her wedding ring. Lane’s journey to heartbreak takes exquisite turns. “Companion” is pure Everly Brothers’ dreaminess (“I would spend a lifetime/ Playing catch you if I can”). Elsewhere, she goes on a Vegas bender on the rollicking “Jackpot,” fights last-call blues (“Foolish Heart”) and tosses off brazen one-liners at a backroom piano (“Big Mouth”).
>Let’s Go Bowling
– Music To Bowl By [1991] LP (Asian Man)
Let’s Go Bowling – Mr. Twist [1996] LP (Asian Man)
First time on vinyl! Limited color pressings of the California ska band’s first two albums.

>Necrophagist
– Epitaph [Reissue/2004] LP (Relapse)
Limited orange color vinyl pressing of the German technical death metal band’s second album.

>New Gen
– New Gen 2xLP (XL)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. An album bringing together the best of the UK’s underground grime and rap scenes with collaborations between 17 young artists “anchored in the half space between trap, grime and new wave R&B, the melting pot which has typically come to represent the New Gen sound.”

>Palisades
– Palisades LP+MP3 (Rise)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. New album from the New Jersey “electronicore” band. Limited clear vinyl pressing also available.

>Pia Fraus / Rocketship
– Cloudy Eyes b/w Outer Otherness 7” (Seksound)
The collaborative single of these musical soulmates includes a new track from both bands, recorded specially for this release. Pia Fraus contributes with a dreampop track “Cloudy Eyes,” that, in addition to their usual dreamy boy/girl vocals and hazy guitars, the band flirts with drum machine beats and even dub-like baselines. Rocketship presents their “Outer Otherness” through a slightly lo-fi synth-pop prism, leaving out the guitars but still holding on to a pop sound in vocals and synths.

>P.O.S.
– Chill, Dummy 2xLP+MP3 (Doomtree)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The Minneapolis rapper and founding member of Doomtree, releases his first solo album since 2012's
We Don't Even Live Here. Chill, Dummy marks the rapper's return to form following a 2014 kidney transplant. Features Justin Vernon, Astronautalis, Kathleen Hanna, Lizzo, Allan Kingdom, Busdriver and Open Mike Eagle and many others.
>Prins Thomas
- Dungen / Sun Araw Remixes 12” (Smalltown Supersound)
Remixes of “D” by experimentalist Sun Araw, “B” by Swedish prog rockers Dungen, plus previously unreleased / unfinished Prins Thomas original track “J”.

>Public Memory
– Veil Of Council LP (Felte)
Public Memory is a concoction of damaged dubbed-out percussion, unfurling tape-delayed synths and sparse sampling - all strung together by producer Robert Toher's snarling tenor. This music is a kind of exotic crossroads between krautrock, trip-hop and coldwave, with traces of Radiohead's
Kid A drifting up through its floor.
>Pulp
– Different Class [Reissue/1995] LP (Plain)
Limited peach color vinyl pressing of Pulp’s Mercury Prize winning fifth LP.

>Jimmy Raney
– Visits Paris [Reissue/1958] LP (Modern Harmonic)
By the time Jimmy Raney recorded the ultra-cool
Visits Paris, he was already at the peak of his career. Having started in 1944 with the Jerry Wald band, he'd pass through a passel of great jazz combos before ending up with Stan Getz in his classic quintet. There, the guitarist became world-renowned, and just weeks before cutting this album, in 1954, he was voted the number one guitarist in the world by French magazine Le Hot Jazz. The album finds Raney on a (very) brief break from touring France, taking the opportunity to cut an album with some local musicians and putting himself very much in the foreground after having been a sideman on previous projects. Red color vinyl pressing.
>Linda Ronstadt
– Living In The USA [Reissue/1978] LP (Friday Music)
Limited 180gm audiophile translucent blue vinyl pressing featuring the long out-of-print gatefold album cover graphics.

>Run-D.M.C.
– King Of Rock [Reissue/1985] LP (Get On Down)
Run-D.M.C.'s self-titled 1984 debut pushed the doors of pop music wide open, showing that hip-hop was not the fad that haters had prophesized. As they proved decisively on Run-D.M.C., rap was a legit art form, fully capable of producing long-players full of no-fast-forward cuts. By 1985, any doubters were running on fumes, as the group's
King Of Rock blew the aforementioned pop doors off their hinges.
>Secret Shine
– There Is Only Now LP (Saint Marie)
New release from the twee/shoegaze/dream pop legends originally signed to the Sarah Records label. Limited assorted color vinyl pressings also available.

>Skeletonwitch
– Beyond The Permafrost [Reissue/2007] LP (Prosthetic)
Skeletonwitch – Serpents Unleashed [Reissue/2013] LP (Prosthetic)
Limited vinyl reissues of the Ohio thrash metal band’s second and fifth albums. [

>Roosevelt Sykes
– Music Is My Business [Reissue/1977] LP (Fat Possum)
1999 Blues Hall Of Fame inductee Roosevelt Sykes' piano blues classic
Music Is My Business reissued on vinyl for the first time in a decade. Recorded September 17, 1975, it also includes appearances by Johnny Shines and Louisiana Red.
>Toots And The Maytals
– In The Dark [Reissue/1973] LP (Get On Down)
Vinyl reissue of the reggae group’s classic second LP. “
In The Dark is a ska/reggae classic that captures the Maytals in their prime, brimming with energy. In the group's music, the positive vibrations of reggae and the deep soul of singer Frederick "Toots" Hibbert are united and elevated by a pervasive spirituality. Exuding warmth and goodwill, Toots & The Maytals seek to excise their sorrows through joyful celebration and praise.” -- AllMusic
>Slim Willet
– Texas Oil Patch Songs [Reissue/1959] LP (Modern Harmonic)
Country singer and disc jockey Slim Willet's ode to tool-pushing,
Texas Oil Patch Songs, was originally issued in 1959 by the artist on his own Winston label, and now is an impossibly-rare LP to dig up – and this Modern Harmonic edition is faithful to the original, including all twelve tracks, liner notes, and restored artwork. Color vinyl.
>Steve Winwood
– Back In The High Life [Reissue/1986] LP (Island)
Steve Winwood – Roll With It [Reissue/1988] LP (Island)
Vinyl reissues of the British rock icon’s fourth and fifth albums.

>Wolfheart
– Tyhjyys LP (Spinefarm)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
Tyhjyys ('Emptiness' to non-Finnish speakers) is the majestic soundtrack to all things with fangs that trot in the wilderness. Over eight majestic new tracks, Wolfheart convey the harsh beauty of Mother Nature while challenging the boundaries of extreme metal.

>Lambchop – Is A Woman [Reissue/2002] 2xLP+MP3 (Merge)
Deluxe vinyl reissue of Lamchop’s 2002 album.
Is A Woman is a very quiet album best heard loud. On a musical landscape of sophisticated, uncluttered melancholy, Kurt Wagner’s lyrics are given unprecedented space, allowing every guttural detail of every single word to be heard, revealing densely poetic texts as intimate as they were incisive, as comic as they were confessional.

>The Besnard Lakes
– The Besnard Lakes Are The Divine Wind 12” (Jagjaguwar)
Two exclusive tracks written and recorded at the same time as their 2016 album
A Coliseum Complex Museum. “Laura Lee” is a sibling track to the album's illustrious first single, “The Golden Lion” -- spacious reverb-y drums echo around an almost sci-fi vocal line sung by Olga Goreas. Meanwhile, the title track “The Divine Wind” is the Besnard Lakes at their expansive, psychedelic best: a sustained keyboard building through to a bombastic coda, complete with Jace Lasek's unmistakable falsetto.
>Bill + Phil
– Songs Of Darkness And Despair LP (Housecore)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “This mini-album is a strange creature in which every track has a different feel, but opener ‘Dirty Eye’ is the only one to feature any straightforward metal, a mid-paced chugfest with few surprises. In contrast, ‘Corpus Crispy’ is an unsettling piece of southern blues, laying down psychedelic lyrics over a traditional beat while a distorted guitar screams incoherently through the fog. ‘Tonight’s The Night We Die’ is a largely acoustic piece that calls Johnny Cash to mind, and ‘Widder Woman’ is a 30-second skit containing a jangling xylophone, a cackling witch and a horror poem about the titular character. It’s a strange and a rather creepy affair that seems thrown together over a hazy weekend.” – Angry Metal Guy

>Bleached
– Can You Deal? LP (Dead Oceans)
Fueled by the experiences they've had as women in their calling for music,
Can You Deal? takes on the complexities of issues female musicians encounter in an industry dominated by men. Four tracks featuring their triumphant mix of sunny melodies, thrashing guitars and lyrics highlighting the darker sides of life. White color vinyl pressing.
>City And Colour

>Lambchop
– Is A Woman [Reissue/2002] 2xLP+MP3 (Merge)
Deluxe vinyl reissue of Lamchop’s 2002 album.
Is A Woman is a very quiet album best heard loud. On a musical landscape of sophisticated, uncluttered melancholy, Kurt Wagner’s lyrics are given unprecedented space, allowing every guttural detail of every single word to be heard, revealing densely poetic texts as intimate as they were incisive, as comic as they were confessional.
>Tim Maia
– Tim Maia [Reissue/1973] LP (Oficial Arquivos)
A great step forward for the legendary Tim Maia – working here in a style that's even tighter and more sophisticated than before – yet still equally filled with funk and soul. The arrangements are a bit bigger than before, and the production a bit more professional – but that change only brings Tim into even more heavenly soul territory – with a mix of grooves and strings that lays somewhere between the best early ‘70s work on labels like Curtom or Motown.

>John Mayall
– Talk About That LP (Forty Below)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “John Mayall is the influential British bluesman who formed his band The Bluesbreakers in 1963. A great guitarist, harmonica player, singer, songwriter and bandleader he is still going strong after more than fifty years. The band on
Talk About That includes Mayall, vocals, Hammond organ, piano, harmonica, and guitar; Rocky Athas, rhythm and lead guitar; Greg Rzab, bass; and Jay Davenport, drums and percussion. The album was recorded in February 2016 at The House of Blues Studios in Encino, CA. Eight of the eleven tracks are new songs written by Mayall. Mayall states that the title track ‘Talk About That’ is a modern bit of funk and a reflection on thoughts that, at the time, were running through his head. Mayall solos on organ. A horn section is added on the New Orleans styled ‘Gimme Some Of That Gumbo’ featuring Ron Dziubla, tenor and baritone sax; Mark Pender, trumpet; and Nick Lane, trombone. This tune with its infectious second line beat is my favorite on this fine album.” – Making A Scene
>The Monkees

Head is pressed on 180gm audiophile translucent gold vinyl.
>Mozart’s Sister
– Field Of Love LP (Arbutus)

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum – Of Natural History [2004] 2xLP (Blood Music)
Sleepytime Gorilla Museum – In Glorious Times [2007] 2xLP (Blood Music)
The legendary avant-rock band Sleepytime Gorilla Museum’s three albums are available on vinyl for the first time. A band that leaps beyond mere categorization, SGM represents a defiance against anything we've come to expect about musical delivery. Steeped somewhere in the pantheon of 19th-century scientific lectures, vaudevillian blasts of excitement, puppet shows, self-made instruments, formless abstraction, soothing atmospheres, man-on-the-street interviews, and death metal - SGM has proven itself as one of the most prominent experimental forces in the musical underground of the last 15 years. Harkening back to the mischievous influences of The Residents, Frank Zappa, and Captain Beefheart; SGM has fashioned their own intense Dadaist universe out of a string of legends that manifest in the mysterious manners of being unable to be proven true or untrue.
