Landing on the Moon - We Make History Now

Made up of luminaries from the burgeoning Omaha/Saddle Creek scene, Landing on the Moon is somewhat of a super-group. With odds stacked against their continued existence as a band since day one, Omaha, Nebraska's Landing on the Moon has risen above the circumstances and maintains an ever-strong pulse. This quintet could easily be perceived as unlikely suspects to thrive in our current era of modern rock and roll. Nevertheless, the band carries itself with a bold musical swagger, a drive, and a confidence of the underdog that could convince you of their purpose on any given day. The bond is tight with this outfit, consisting of a set of siblings, a pair of spouses, and two friends that are like brothers to the rest. The writing and composition is shared. The sound is thick and detailed, from the soaring guitars, to the prominence the rhythm section, to the mesmerizing piano work, to the cap of shared harmonious dual male/female team-effort vocals - always delivering a common heartfelt message from song to song. With a completely working-class and honest approach, Landing on the Moon combines decades of musical experience and education between them with friendship. The resulting chemistry of which produces love and loss, humor and contempt, melancholy and triumph, despair and hope, joy and fear. But above all things they possess two standout defining characteristics that are unwavering: a soul and a passion in their songs - missing from much of today's music - backed with an immortal desire to share it.

Sonic Youth - Sister (Vinyl)

On 180 gram vinyl! 'EVOL was a major leap forward for Sonic Youth, but Sister is a masterpiece, demonstrating the group's rapidly evolving musicality. More than ever before, Sonic Youth's songs sound like actual songs, and their collages of noise, distortion, and alternate tunings are now used to provide texture and depth to the music, which is original, complex, and rewarding. Not only is there the full-throttle roar of "Tuff Gnarl," but there are shimmering layers of ambient harmonics and dissonance that are as haunting and challenging as any of their barrages of feedback. Furthermore, Sister has a warm sound, which lures the listeners into music that's defiantly arty but never indulgent. It's one of the singular art rock records of the '80s.' - All Music Guide

Music News & Notes

The Wonder Years And Heroes For Hire to release split 7" vinyl

To coincide with their forthcoming Australian tour, US pop-punk act The Wonder Years will be teaming up with Australia’s own Heroes For Hire for a limited-edition vinyl release titled A Split Record. The release is the handy work of Boomtown and Hopeless Records.

There will be five different purchase options for A Split Record, including multiple color combinations and one-off tee shirt designs from both bands.


MUSICA DIABLO's Debut To Receive Vinyl Release

MUSICA DIABLO — the São Paulo, Brazil-based thrash metal project featuring SEPULTURA singer Derrick Green, guitarist André NM (NITROMINDS), bassist Ricardo Brigas, guitarist André Germani Curci (KORZUS, THREAT) and drummer Edu Nicollini (NITROMINDS) — has inked a deal with the French label Deadlight Entertainment to release the band's debut album on vinyl.

"Musica Diablo" came out on May 28 via SAOL / H'Art / Zebralution. The CD's cover artwork was created by Gustavo Sazes, who has previously worked with ARCH ENEMY, GOD FORBID and OLD MAN'S CHILD.


Jefferson Airplane Never-released Live Albums To Be Issued On Collectors' Choice

On October 26, 2010, Collectors' Choice Music Live will release four previously unreleased live albums: Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/15/66 Late Show - Signe's Farewell, Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/16/66 Early & Late Shows - Grace's Debut, Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 11/25/66 & 11/27/66 - We Have Ignition, and Return to the Matrix 2/1/68.

The first three releases document the astonishing growth of the band, and follow the near-seamless absorption of Grace Slick's voice and material into the Airplane's sound just as they were entering the studio to record Surrealistic Pillow. The fourth release captures the group triumphantly returning to their home turf at Marty Balin's club The Matrix for a relaxed, exploratory set in an intimate setting, performing material from their first four albums, including Crown of Creation, seven months before its release. Hand-picked by a team of devotees, annotated by frequent Airplane flyer Craig Fenton (author of the book Take Me To A Circus Tent: The Jefferson Airplane Flight Manual), and featuring rare photos inside handsome digi-packs, these concerts distill and express the dream and promise of the Haight-Ashbury scene.

•Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/15/66 Late Show - Signe's Farewell: The Grace Slick era of the Airplane has understandably received most of the attention paid the band over the years. But they had released a good album (Jefferson Airplane Takes Off) and were already a powerful live outfit before Slick came aboard. The 10/15/66 release not only marks the first appearance on CD of a live recording featuring Signe Anderson with the band, but also her very last show. Both Marty Balin and the Fillmore's Bill Graham give her shout-outs. Songs include "3/5ths of a Mile in Ten Seconds," "Tobacco Road," "Midnight Hour," "High Flyin' Bird" and "Chauffeur Blues" (which Grace never performed out of respect for Signe, who'd made the old blues tune her own). It was the end of an era. But a new one was about to begin the very next day, and is the subject of the 10/16/66 release.

•Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/16/66 Early & Late Shows - Grace's Debut: The 10/16/66 volume chronicles the first set of concerts featuring Grace Slick as a member of the Airplane, a mere day after Signe Anderson officially left the band. The band has yet to add the material Slick brought to the band ("Somebody To Love" and "White Rabbit) to the set list, but Grace's harmony work with Marty and Paul is impressive, and you can literally hear her confidence growing from the first set to the second. The album contains "The Other Side of This Life," "Let Me In," "Don't Let Me Down," "Run Around" and "High Flying Bird," plus versions of "3/5ths of a Mile in 10 Seconds" and "Tobacco Road" with the new line-up, and Leiber & Stoller's "Kansas City," which has never appeared on any Airplane studio or live album. Surrealistic Pillow photographer Herbie Greene contributes photos. Things would never be the same for the band or for '60s rock.

•Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 11/25/66 & 11/27/66 - We Have Ignition: CCM Live subtitled these shows "We Have Ignition" as they believe this is when the Airplane transformed from a high-flying bird into a psychedelic spaceship (but not yet a Starship.) It's difficult to believe, when comparing these November shows with Grace's live debut on 10/16/66, that only six weeks have elapsed. Not only has the band (particularly guitarist Jorma Kaukonen) progressed as musicians, but the infusion of Surrealistic Pillow material some four months before the album hit the stores shifts the focus of this folk-rock band to rock. Included are "Plastic Fantastic Lover," "High Flyin' Bird," "Bringing Me Down," " D.C.B.A-25," "My Best Friend," "Go to Her," "She Has Funny Cars," "3/5ths of a Mile in 10 Seconds," "Skip Spence's "J.P.P. McStep B Blues," "White Rabbit," "Today" and more. Two rarities are a mind blowing, 9:45-minute version of "The Other Side of Life" (performed for a photo session) that neither its author, the folk singer-songwriter Fred Neil, nor the band could ever have anticipated, and the only known recording of an instrumental known in some quarters as "My Grandfather's Clock." This is the Airplane at its early apex.

•Return to the Matrix 2/1/68: The Airplane returned to the first club they ever played, the Matrix, in 1968 for a 103-minute show at the height of their commercial prowess. They band premiered two songs from the Crown of Creation album (which was months away from being released): "Share a Little Joke" and an instrumental version of "Ice Cream Phoenix." They also performed "Blues From an Airplane," a song from its first (pre-Slick) album. Also here: "Somebody to Love," "Young Girl Sunday Blues," "She Has Funny Cars," "Two Heads," "Martha," "Kansas City," "Other Side of this Life," "Today," "Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon," "It's No Secret," "Watch Her Ride," "Plastic Fantastic Lover," "Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil," "White Rabbit," "Fat Angel" and "3/5ths of a Mile in 10 Seconds."


Antony and the Johnsons EP Coming This Month Ahead of New Album

Antony and the Johnsons will release their new five song EP "Thank You For Your Love" on August 24. The title-track is the lead single from the forthcoming album "Swanlights" also being released by Secretly Canadian on October 12.

On "Thank You For Your Love", Antony expresses a soul-infused cry of gratitude, but the song progresses into urgency, leaving behind the 4/4 rhythms and breaking into an emotional gallop that reveals an underlying pathos. "You Are The Treasure" is the calm after the storm, "My Lord My Love" closes the A side as a song for a lost childhood. The B side features two unusual covers accompanied by Kevin Barker on Acoustic Guitar, the first is Bob Dylan's "Pressing On", Antony's take is sweet, upbeat and beautiful. "Imagine" collaboration with avant-garde ambient composer William Basinski is a foreboding take on John Lennon's hallowed song.

Artwork for the EP features photographs Antony took when he first arrived in NYC as a teenager in the early 90's.

Antony and the Johnsons will also release their new album, "Swanlights", on October 12th in the US via Secretly Canadian. Abrams Image will simultaneously release a special edition of "Swanlights" which will include the CD inside a 144-page hard cover book containing Antony's paintings, collages, photography and writing. The album only version of "Swanlights" on Secretly Canadian will also include the song "Flétta", a duet with Björk. The album and book are a continuation of Antony's work exploring his connection to the natural world.


More Jimi Hendrix Reissues Coming in October

Legacy Recordings have recently announced the second installment of releases for their 2010 Jimi Hendrix Catalog Project, available October 19, 2010. Legacy's next round of titles will include deluxe editions of Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions and Jimi Hendrix: Blues, his legendary Live At Woodstock performance, and Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year, the highly collectible Jimi Hendrix Christmas EP.

Originally released in 1994, the Jimi Hendrix: Blues album features 11 blues performances recorded by Hendrix between 1966 and 1970 showcasing the guitarist's mastery of the 12-bar form. The new deluxe Legacy edition comes packaged in a six-panel digipak with an expanded, 36 page booklet and includes a bonus DVD featuring an expanded, 30 minute version of "Jimi Hendrix and the Blues" from the Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues series. Directed and Produced by Alex Gibney, Janie Hendrix and John McDermott, the film features interviews and live performances not seen in the original PBS television broadcast. A double-disc 12" vinyl LP audiophile edition of Jimi Hendrix: Blues will also be available.

The Legacy edition of Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions brings together recordings from Hendrix's appearances on a variety of BBC radio and television broadcasts from 1967 through 1969. The two CD Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions comes packaged in a six-panel digipak and includes a never before released 30 minute bonus DVD documentary. The film features the group's famed January 1969 appearance on "Happening For Lulu" which featured Hendrix interrupting the live broadcast to perform a ferocious rendition of Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love" together with interviews with Jimi Hendrix Experience bandmates Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding as well as BBC staff producers Jeff Griffin and Bernie Andrews detailing the legendary sessions. The acclaimed 2 CD set includes Hendrix's unique interpretations of such classics as Bob Dylan's "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?," Muddy Waters "Hoochie Coochie Man" [with noted British blues enthusiast Alexis Korner on slide guitar], the Beatles "Day Tripper" as well as two songs featuring the dream pairing of Stevie Wonder with Hendrix. A single CD "best-of" the BBC Sessions as well as a three-disc 12" audiophile vinyl LP edition of the album will also be available. Both the 2 CD and 3 LP BBC sets feature a previoulsy unreleased version of "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" sourced from the August 24, 1967 of the Jimi Hendrix Experience on Top of The Tops.

Jimi Hendrix's watershed Live At Woodstock album, the artist's most popular live performance, will be reissued in a two CD set, available in both digipak and brilliant box configurations as well as an audiophile, three-disc 12" vinyl LP edition.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, the Jimi Hendrix seasonal single, features the celebrated 1969 medley of "Little Drummer Boy," "Silent Night," and "Auld Lang Syne" backed with "Three Little Bears." Merry Christmas & Happy New Year will be reissued as a CD as well as on 7" vinyl in a picture sleeve.

The upcoming wave of 2010 Jimi Hendrix titles culminates in the long awaited release of West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology, a definitive career-spanning four CD box set which tracks Hendrix's remarkable journey from R&B sideman to international stardom. The deluxe set is filled with previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix Experience recordings plus demos, alternate takes and more. The newly curated and assembled Jimi Hendrix anthology will include a new Hendrix documentary directed by the Grammy award winning Bob Smeaton (Beatles Anthology, Festival Express, Beatles: The Studio Recordings).

Legacy's first round of Jimi Hendrix releases opened with the release of Valleys of Neptune, a long-awaited album of previously unavailable Jimi Hendrix studio recordings, which debuted on the Billboard 200 best-selling albums chart at #4 while four additional Hendrix catalog titles -- Are You Experienced (#44), Electric Ladyland (#60), First Rays of the New Rising Sun (#63), and Axis: Bold As Love (#67) -- rocketed back into the Billboard 200 four decades after their original release dates. A testimony to the enduring vitality and importance of the trailblazing artist-guitarist-performer, Jimi Hendrix had five albums in America's Top 100 in March 2010.

"Jimi's music is as alive today as it was 40 years ago, and the success of our most recent releases with Sony Legacy provides thrilling confirmation. We have long maintained that the power of Jimi's music and the power of his message would stand the test of time and provide its own bridge to the future," said Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix LLC. "Being partnered with Legacy enables us to reach a more global audience with that message. And the best is yet to come. What we have in store will propel Jimi into a new decade, with unseen footage and unheard versions of his songs that will absolutely amaze today's music lovers. And we're confident that the distribution is in good hands, opening the door to new and fresh markets. The focus of our endeavors is, and always will be, all about Jimi's music."
