Golden Earring - Moontan - Vinyl Record (Import 2009)

This 1973 outing is the album that raised Golden Earring to an international level of popularity, primarily on the strength of the hit single and enduring radio favorite "Radar Love." However, there is much more to this album than just that hit. In many ways, Moontan is like a summation of everything the group had learned on their first three albums. It presents a similar combination of prog epics, heavy rockers, and songs that combine both elements, but everything is raised to a new level of inspiration and polish. It starts with a bang thanks to "Candy's Going Bad," a piece that starts off as a thunderous, pounding rocker but transforms midway into a bluesy instrumental mood piece. Other highlights include the hit single "Radar Love," a relentless rock tune with a left-field instrumental break in which tribal drums duel with a big band-style horn section, and "Just Like Vince Taylor," a guitar-slinging slice of boogie rock that pays tribute to the fallen rock idol of the title.

Wolvserpent - Perigaea Antahkarana (Purple) 2XLP

Available 9/17/13

Boise, Idaho duo WOLVSERPENT summon a deeply lush and powerful amalgamation of doom, dark-folk, drone, chamber music and black metal on their Relapse debut ‘Perigaea Antahkarana’. Shimmering tribal drone dances with epic blackened metal to create a sound much much bigger than its two human parts.

Simultaneously dark and beautiful, WOLVSERPENT’s sprawling Relapse debut gracefully blends stringed amplified instruments with a 21st century approach to composition to create a 4 part masterwork that is dark, emotional, menacing, cinematic, atmospheric, and heartbreakingly lovely.

Pressing Info:

First Press
900 x Grimace Purple Standard Gram
100 x Clear (do not request clear)
***2XLP version comes housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket and Includes a Free Digital Download of the Album***

Pre-Order Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Fly By Wire

The Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Fly By Wire split color vinyl just arrived and it looks...well...just take a peek for yourself because we're speechless!

As great as the record looks, we can happily say the music is even better.

Recorded in the same attic as SSLYBY's beloved debut Broom, Fly By Wire contains many similarities to that album's lo-fi aesthetic while still providing a healthy dose of the band's infectious pop hooks.

Stream "Nightwater Girlfriend," "Harrison Ford," and "Young Presidents" here.

The album is available for pre-order on all of the following formats:
Mailorder exclusive Split Red/White vinyl (limited to 800 copies)
Red tape (limited to 100 copies)
"Fly By Shire" T-Shirt+MP3 (printed on ultra-soft AA Tri-Blend Track shirts)

White vinyl is limited to 71 copies. Exclusive shirt-pack is limited to 24 copies. Black version limited to 195 copies. No reprints.

Architect's sixth full length album Mine constitutes an appreciable shift in direction compared to his previous works by adding compositional and instrumental innovations brand new to this project. Supported by well-respected artists such as Ben Lukas Boysen a.k.a. Hecq, guitarist and cellist Felix Gerlach, Dejan Samardzic (dsx), legendary producer, engineer and remixer Paul Kendall (Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb, Erasure, Recoil), Canadian musician and sound designer Comaduster and Hungarian vocalist Emese Arvai-Illes (Black Nail Cabaret), Architect marches to no one's beat but his own, expanding ambitious electronica with comprehensive down-tempo song structures. Moderate yet decisive beats and precise keyboard and string arrangements build the foundation for Emese's exceptional voice, transmitting suspense, depth and sinister beauty with perfectly fitting lyrics.

Depending on how and when you listen, this atmospheric release can fill you with menace and sadness, or send you into a deep reverie. Uncompromising, muscular and powerful, the music of Mine is also full of subtle touches and a supple sense of rhythm. Highly recommended for devotees of Moderat, Recoil or House of Black Lanterns - this album will be 'yours' for sure.
