DEEP FANTASY by White Lung Available On Vinyl

Resilient and hard hitting rock n’ roll outfit, White Lung released their third album Deep Fantasy via Domino on June 16th/17th. The band is every bit as confrontational as before, but they’ve managed to open their sound up just enough to draw listeners in before kicking them in the face.  In a very good way.

After a year plus of near constant touring behind Sorry — which won raves from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Interview —White Lung slimmed to a trio in the studio; vocalist Mish Way, drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou and guitarist Kenneth William.  Deep Fantasy was made primarily in Vancouver with producer Jesse Gander (who did both Sorry and their 2010 debut It’s The Evil) in just two, ten day-long sessions at the end of last year and the start of this one.  William handled bass duties on Deep Fantasy while Wax Idols' Hether Fortune will take up bass and backing vocal duties on tour for the foreseeable future.

Way is more provocative and melodic than ever on Deep Fantasy, lyrically surveying addiction (“Drown With the Monster”), body dysmorphia (“Snake Jaw”) and sexual dynamics (“Down It Goes,”) amongst other dinner table topics.  William, a devotee of Johnny Marr “plays with the speed of an 80s hardcore dude” whirled in Vassiliou’s relentless and seemingly effortless approach to drumming.

R.E.M.'s I.R.S. Records Singles Gathered for New Vinyl Seven-Inch Collection, 7 IN - 83-88

7IN – 83-88 is a new boxed collection of eleven vinyl seven-inch singles to be released worldwide December 9 by Capitol/I.R.S. The singles feature replicated original picture sleeve art and labels, including two U.K. releases making their U.S. vinyl seven-inch debuts: “Finest Worksong” / “Time After Time” (live) and the double-pack single for “Wendell Gee” with “Crazy,” “Ages of You,” and “Burning Down.”

R.E.M.'s early storytelling was both epic and familiar, with themes of loss and alienation expressed in several songs, including "So. Central Rain (I'm Sorry)," "(Don't Go Back To) Rockville," and in their 1987 Top 10, "The One I Love." This new, transformative music emitted from the sleepy/sharp college town of Athens, Georgia, where R.E.M. and other bands forged a scene, which spawned a movement and ultimately led to a cultural sea change in music.

1987's "Its The End Of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was a tongue-twisting pop culture rally cry, beckoning to the tuned-out masses, listless casualties of 1980s economics, politics, and general 'Me Generation' malaise.

R.E.M. '7IN - 83-88'
 "Radio Free Europe" / "There She Goes Again"
 "So. Central Rain (I'm Sorry)" / "King of the Road"
 "(Don't Go Back To) Rockville" / "Catapult" (Live)
 "Can't Get There From Here" / "Bandwagon"
 "Driver 8" / "Crazy"
 "Wendell G" / "Crazy" + "Ages of You" / "Burning Down" [U.K. double-pack, previously unreleased on vinyl in U.S.]

 "The One I Love" / "Maps and Legends" (Live)

Pre-Order 'Tell 'Em I'm Gone' by Yusuf/Cat Stevens on Vinyl

Tell 'Em I'm Gone is the first new Yusuf album to be released since 2009's acclaimed Roadsinger. Recorded all over the world, including Los Angeles, Dubai, Brussels, and London, the album features 10 brand-new studio recordings, including five originals and five carefully-chosen cover songs. Tell 'Em I'm Gone features musical contributions from Richard Thompson, blues harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite, singer-songwriter Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Tuareg group Tinariwen, and guitarist Matt Sweeney. The album was produced by Yusuf, with Rick Rubin also producing select tracks.

Each track on Tell 'Em I'm Gone revives the age-old themes of freedom and peace that have prevailed through more than four decades of Yusuf's musical career. On this album, Yusuf returns to the roots of his teenage musical inspiration: American blues and R&B, using these genres to explore humanity's climb to freedom with songs that recall the spirit of his earliest days as a nascent singer-songwriter in London.

Stunning originals like "I Was Raised In Babylon" and "Cat And The Dog Trap" plus covers of American standards ("Big Boss Man," "You Are My Sunshine") and a moving version of Edgar Winter's "Dying To Live" find Yusuf as strong of voice and as engaging a performer as ever before.

Ladies and gentlemen...The Rolling Stones!

The definitive, authorized illustrated history of the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band

The kind of fame and success The Rolling Stones have achieved in their 50-years and counting career is without parallel; their most famous riffs and catchiest lyrics are indelibly engraved in our collective memory. With their bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and mesmerizing off and onstage presence, the Stones redefined the music of the 1960s and 1970s and paved the way for rock as we know it today. They also set the standard for how a rock band should look and behave. Produced in close collaboration with the band, this book charts the Stones’ remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle in over 500 pages of photographs and illustrations, many previously unseen, and gathered from archives all over the world. Unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones’ own archives in New York and London adds an equally extraordinary, more private side to their story. For Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie this is their official photographic record.

Features:
  • Over 500 pages of incredible images from some of the world’s greatest photographers, including David Bailey, Peter Beard, Cecil Beaton, Bob Bonis, Anton Corbijn, Annie Leibovitz, Gered Mankowitz, Helmut Newton, Bent Rej, and Norman Parkinson
  • A foreword written by President Bill Clinton
  • Three new essays from award-winning writers David Dalton, Waldemar Januszczak, and Luc Sante
  • Appendix including Stones in the media, a Stones timeline, a discography, and photographers’ biographies

TV ON THE RADIO - SEEDS

TV On the Radio will release their new album, Seeds, November 17th on Harvest Records. The band’s new single “Happy Idiot” ignites a hearty introduction to Seeds, catapulting out of the gate with an earnestly frenetic beat over a sweet sweet chorus of resignation. One thing that remains a constant with TV on the Radio is that there is no constant, and one curveball trounces another on Seeds.

SOUNDTRACK (OST) - CARRIE

Carrie is the 2013 remake of the classic horror tale about Carrie White, a shy girl who is outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother. Carrie unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, Carrie is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Lawrence D. Cohen and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, with top actresses Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore signing for the lead roles.

The haunting classical score by Marco Beltrami vividly accompanies the eerie and terrifying scenes of the film. The dynamic soundtrack is wonderfully suited for a vinyl issue, making this without a doubt an audiophile collectible. In cinema's now!

SOUNDTRACK (OST) - UTOPIA : SERIES 1

One of the most critically acclaimed scores of 2013, UTOPIA SERIES 1’s soundtrack was described by The Arts Desk as "Cristobal Tapia de Veer's cunning, menacing music”.

Coming out in September on DLP vinyl for the first time (and on limited yellow vinyl at that), the score features instruments ranging from a rare Chilean trutruka recorded in Borough tube station to the percussion sounds of a rhino turd from Zimbabwe! This one of the most eclectic and innovative TV scores in a long while and has been specially mastered for this vinyl release.

“This show. This music. Everything about is so odd and so perfect. The soundtrack to this show is quite honestly one of the best I've ever heard…” - Waterman Butterly (Top tracks of 2013 - UTOPIA OVERTURE - CRISTOBAL TAPIA DE VEER)

Trans-Siberian Orchestra The Christmas Attic

“THE HOLIDAY TRADITION FOR A NEW GENERATION!”

Originally released in 1998, "The Christmas Attic" is the second album by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and the second installment of their Christmas Trilogy. The story begins On Christmas Eve,  when a young girl's curiosity leads her to a night of mischief and magic when she decides to sneak up into the attic of her parents' home while she should be asleep.  This album contains a mix of vocal and instrumental songs. The track “Christmas Canon,” one of the TSO's most well-known songs, is a variation of Pachelbel's famous Canon in D Major, with lyrics and new music added as well as Boughs of Holly and a soulful rendition of Music Box Blues.

“The Christmas Attic” is being made available on vinyl for the first time in a 2-LP set. The brilliantly remastered records are packaged in a seasonal gatefold jacket that includes a colorful 12-page booklet filled with the tale of The Christmas Attic as well as the lyrics to all the songs.

When founder and producer Paul O'Neill first conceived Trans-Siberian Orchestra, his goal was as straightforward as it was ambitious: “...create a progressive rock band that would push the boundaries further than any group before, following in the footsteps of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Pink Floyd, the Who...but take it way, way further.”

With more than 9 million albums sold TSO has inspired generations of fans to rediscover the multi-dimensional art form of the rock opera. They've become one of the world's top acts and listed in Billboard magazine as one of the top touring artists of the past decade. Their $20 million-plus stage production has played to over 11 million people in 80+ cities across the globe. TSO will once again be touring during the 2014 and 2015 holiday season with “The Christmas Attic” show. Last year they welcomed-in the New Year in front of over one million German fans in a nationally televised show live from the Brandenberg Gate.

Pre-Order Deerhoof's 'La Isla Bonita' Via Polyvinyl

Blame it on the Ramones. After Deerhoof finished recording demos for La Isla Bonita this past February, they began rehearsing for an upcoming tour. Halfway through a run-through of a long-time Deerhoof live favorite, their cover of the Ramones classic "Pinhead," someone offhandedly asked, "Why don't we ever write a song like this?" So Greg quickly dashed off a song on a scrap of paper, showed it to the band, and they recorded the breakneck stomper "Exit Only" in one take.

La Isla Bonita was recorded in guitarist Ed Rodriguez's basement. Situated next to a parking garage, it was perfect for making noise till the wee hours. They recorded live, DIY style, "a weeklong sleepover arguing over whether to try and sound like Joan Jett or Janet Jackson, cracking each other up, one guitarist whose name starts with J always putting too much red chile into the rations," says Greg. But more than that La Isla Bonita is about the eclectic worldwide community that has supported them.

You'll hear them pay musical tributes to their improbable list of heroes-turned-fans: David Bowie, Ric Ocasek, The Roots, Lou Reed, David Byrne, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Beck. Of course their intent is never reverence, but provocation. They are always on the hunt for that perfect union of the hilarious and the terrifying that one hears in other bands of their generation like Bikini Kill and Lightning Bolt. 2014 has been a killer year for young, aggressive female-fronted bands (St. Vincent, Tune-Yards, Perfect Pussy, Karen O, Speedy Ortiz) and La Isla Bonita is also partly a discourse with them.

To produce the vocals they tapped former journalist-turned-label owner and producer Nick Sylvester, and that's where the album's pop side comes out: Satomi's singing is front and center, and if it sounds

like she's commanding the band, it's because she was. "Satomi determined the direction the music would go," says Greg. As the inevitable temptation to sweeten the mix and edit down the takes crept in, Satomi kept everything focused on repeating grooves and simple arrangements. This is the glorious sound of four musicians owning their own hard-won and richly deserved legacy.

NERVES - One Way Ticket

LTD EDITION of 150 ATOMIC ORANGE VINYL 

Formed in 1975 by guitarist JACK LEE, bassist PETER CASE, and drummer PAUL COLLINS, the Nerves are one of the most influential garage/punk pop outfits to come out of the mid-70's LA scene, and certainly one of the least documented... until now.

Mostly remembered for their classic "Hanging On The Telephone," a Jack Lee composition which has been covered over the years by a myriad of artists from BLONDIE to L7 to CAT POWER, the Nerves were above all a high energy rock'n'roll band with all three members composing and singing. Playing fast, ear-catching garage pop songs, sometimes wearing matching suits, the trio had more than a bit of the stripped down street energy of the Los Angeles's early punk movement. They shared the stage with the Ramones and Mink Deville during their infamous US "Magical Blistering Tour," played the Punk Palace and the legendary Masque in Hollywood, and headlined shows with the Avengers, the Zeros, The Dils, The Screamers and Shock, to name just a few.

After the band's break-up in 1978, Peter Case and Paul Collins formed The BREAKAWAYS, and later went on to front the legendary PLIMSOULS and The BEAT, respectively. Following the success of "Hanging On the Telephone," JACK LEE has mostly focused on his songwriting career, releasing an album in 1981. Both Peter and Paul are still recording and touring. PETER CASE's latest album "Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John" (Yeproc 2007) was nominated for a Grammy. This collection, authorized for the first time ever by the three band members, features their 1976 EP (now regarded as a power pop classic), as well as demos and previously unreleased live recordings, REMASTERED and complete with notes and photos.

Ennio Morricone's 'A Lizard in a Woman's Skin' Gets Deluxe Vinyl Reissue Via Death Waltz

It is a proud day for Death Waltz Recording Company as we prepare to release a score by one of the biggest composers in film music history. Ennio Morricone has produced masterpiece after masterpiece, but none so creatively unsettling as his score to the 1971 Lucio Fulci giallo A LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN (aka UNA LUCERTOLA CON LA PELLE DI DONNA). Like many of Fulci’s movies, LIZARD blurs the line between dreams and reality, with hedonistic nightmares featuring narcotic-fuelled orgies leading to real murder that may or may not have been committed during one of the dreams.

Morricone’s music is as unhinged as the film itself, mixing post-sixties funk and jazz with increasingly uncomfortable effects to provide a haunting and biting backdrop for the turn of the century thriller. As always, elements of the maestro’s music are beautiful, with ethereal vocals by regular collaborator Edda dell’Orso, and this works even better in stark contrast with the harsher sections, with eerie woodwinds, the requisite whistling, wind instruments that sound like coyote howls, and low rhythmic bass that hits your head and your stomach at a point where you start to wonder if someone else is if the house with you. Still, if you’re going to be graphically murdered, A LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN is the soundtrack to have it done to you by.

Ask Mr. Music by Jerry Osborne

FOR THE WEEKS OF OCTOBER 20 & 27, 2014


DEAR JERRY: Occasionally, a catchy TV show theme song, or some variation of it, was also issued on records. 

I can only think of a few, but I would like to know of more. 

Can you put together such a list? 
—Jolene Henning, Garland, Texas 


DEAR JOLENE: Would a few hundred such TV themes help get you by for now?

Our list is alphabetical by program title, followed by a song title when it's something other than a variation of "Theme from." Next is the artist, and when their record came out, which is not always when the series aired.

We may identify one or two versions of a theme, but many others may exist. Not all can be listed here.

IZ ZAT SO? When Tom T. Hall wrote "Harper Valley P.T.A." he could never have imagined what a cultural phenomenon he'd created.

Not only did Jeannie C. Riley's 1968 recording top both the pop and country charts in the U.S. and Canada — the first time ever accomplished by a female — but that one little phonograph record inspired a feature film (1978) AND a TV series (1981). That too had never happened before.

new arrivals from our friends at SoundStageDirect

Can by Can

Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic, experimental, and modern classical music.

Can, the 11th studio album by Can was originally released in 1979. Lost during its initial release amongst the punk explosion, Can features the classic tracks “Sodom” and “Can Be”. Holger Czukay’s involvement took a back seat on this album. Can is also the last album before Can reunited with Malcolm Mooney on the reunion album, Rite Time in 1986.

The band’s powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West (who sampled ‘Sing Swan Song’) and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.

All Hands On The Bad One by Sleater-Kinney

Sleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994. The band's core lineup consists of Corin Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and Janet Weiss (drums). Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist, left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest.

All Hands on the Bad One is the fifth studio album by Sleater-Kinney, originally released on May 2, 2000 by Kill Rock Stars. The album was produced by John Goodmanson and recorded from December 1999 to January 2000 at Jackpot! Studio in Portland, Oregon and John & Stu's Place in Seattle, Washington.

Upon release, All Hands on the Bad One reached number 177 on the US Billboard Top 200 chart and number 12 on the Heatseekers Albums chart. All Hands on the Bad One appeared on several end-of-year lists and received a nomination for Outstanding Music Album at the 12th Annual Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Awards. The Village Voice placed it at number 10 in its 2000 “Pazz & Jop” Critics' Poll.

The album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release. This reissue coincides with Sub Pop’s release of remastered versions of Sleater-Kinney’s six other albums, as well as a limited-edition, deluxe vinyl box set featuring all seven albums.

AMERICAN SHARKS RELEASE SPECIAL EDITION "COLOR-YOUR-OWN" VINYL RE-PRESS 

American Sharks first pressing of their debut album sold out a few weeks ago. Yesterday, the band announced on their Facebook page that they are releasing a special edition “color-your-own” vinyl re-press limited to 500 copies. They stripped the original gatefold jacket of all color, leaving just the black and white outline, and packaged the record with custom markers so you can “color-your-own."

The vinyl itself is white with black splatter to match the jacket. The custom markers are named after the bands favorite weed flavors (strawberry cough, blue dream, grape ape, green crack, pineapple kush, sweet island skunk, & hashish). To make things even more fun they are holding a coloring contest and giving away $666 to the winner. To enter the contest you have to buy the special edition re-press, use the markers they provided to color it in, and submit photos on instagram by tagging @americansharks and hash tagging #americansharks.

All We Are Self-Titled LP Up For Pre-Order

We are proud to announce the debut self-titled album release from All We Are, on February 3rd 2015.

A global gathering made up of Ireland’s Richard O’Flynn (drums), Norway’s Guro Gikling (bass) and Brazil’s Luis Santos (guitar), the up-and-coming trio won over this summer’s festivals with their languid three way vocals and atmospheric live show. With the summer under their belts they’re getting ready to release their self-titled debut album, produced by Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, MIA, Hot Chip).

A total democracy, the band write music and lyrics together, jamming tracks and words until they are perfect. They rehearse every day in Richard’s unique living quarters in Toxteth - an abandoned school nursery of which he is the sole guardian. Most of the album was recorded in this space.

Currently prepping for support slots with London Grammar, All We Are have already been taken out on the road by Warpaint, with whom they are now good friends, and by Jungle, who discovered the band on SoundCloud. Performances at End of The Road, Port Eliot, Field Day, Reading and Leeds, Green Man and Electric Picnic have also seen them deliver electrifying sets, with their intense brand of performance featuring Richard’s stand-up drumming and an almost telepathic kind of playing, focused around a triangular, inward facing positioning of the three players.

Inspired by a shared love of hip-hop and modern soul music, Guro calls their sound “psychedelic boogie”, born of long, late nights and inspired by the great outdoors. Dreamy melodies, supple psychedelics and gorgeous midnight disco grooves – this is the sublime, swirling sound of All We Are.   180gm heavyweight LP plus download code with bonus 7" featuring two exclusive tracks 'Just Give It To Me' & 'Reach'

Pre-order the album and receive an instant MP3 download of "I Wear You" And "Feel Safe"

Mannequin Pussy - Gypsy Pervert 

Mannequin Pussy began as a duo, Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul, childhood pals turned degenerates. The band expanded to a three-piece for their debut album, Gypsy Pervert. The beefed up sound is evident from the beginning as the band shifts seamlessly from grungey punk rock blasts to more textured shoegazey pop. Clocking in at less than 20 minutes, Gypsy Pervert sways urgently back and forth.

Raw and confrontational yet still melodic and inviting, Mannequin Pussy shows off a diverse palette on their debut album.

Minus The Bear 'They Make Beer Commercials Like This' Reissue Available On Orange Vinyl

10 year anniversary orange vinyl reissue of Minus The Bear's excellent They Make Beer Commercials Like This. Featuring great songs like Fine + 2 Points!

Even if 'Beer Commercials' doesn't fit within your definition of pop music, the unorthodox energetic charm of this relatively low-profile release serves as an exciting reminder of why Minus The Bear became one of the most important and influential indie rock bands of the new century.

Cretin 'Stranger' Pre-Order Available From Relaspe

California's grindcore/death metal misfits Cretin return with their first new material of freakish, extreme metal in over eight years!   A perverted homage to the glory days of proto-grind and raw, depraved death metal, Cretin have perfected the lo-fi stylings of Repulsion, Autopsy and early Napalm Death with their highly anticipated sophomore full-length, Stranger.  Oozing with violent, buzz-saw guitars, grinding grooves and blasts, a gut-wrenching low end and utterly deviant vocals/lyrics, Stranger will bring a malignant smile to those who prefer their listening sick and twisted.
