Holly Golightly - Truly She Is None Other (Expanded Version) - CD/LP/Download

10 year anniversary re-issue of Holly's greatest album with 2 BONUS UNRELEASED tracks!

Collector's edition on RED vinyl and digipak CD

It's been out of stock for a while so we've decided to make this re-issue a little bit special. Often cited as perhaps her best solo album Truly She Is None Other was recorded in 2002/3 at Toe-Rag Studios by Liam Watson and features the song 'Tell Me Now So I Know' which was picked for the main title theme for Jim Jarmush's 'Broken Flowers' movie.

Among the nine Holly originals the album features two Ray Davies songs ('Time Will Tell' & 'Tell Me Now So I Know'), along with 'There's An End', (penned by her friend Craig Fox from The Greenhornes.) There's also a fine version of Jessie Mae Robinson's 'Black Night', a song most famously covered by Muddy Waters.

Backed by the cream of Toe-Rag's in house musicians, this is Holly Golightly at her finest.
With sleeve notes by none other than Jack White III.

King Crimson - Larks Tongues In Aspic (vinyl preorder)

Larks' Tongues In Aspic is the fifth in a series of audiophile King Crimson vinyl reissues.

Newly cut from masters approved by Robert Fripp, this super-heavyweight 200gm vinyl re-issue is housed in a reprint of the original sleeve and contains bonus MP3 codes giving access to a download of a transfer of an original 1973 pressing.

With its raw tone, inspired improvisations and hard hitting odd-metered rhythms, the album marked a radical departure for this most forward thinking of groups and was the first to include Bill Bruford and John Wetton as band members.

Pre-order for 23rd September release.

Brooklyn Record Company Continues To Clean Up Mess Left By Sandy


THE HUSSY 'Pagan Hiss' Available on Vinyl

Just a year after Weed Seizure was released, THE HUSSY returns with Pagan Hiss: 14 tracks of pungent and poignant psych-punk/trash-art that twists the limits of both punk and pop music. Over the 14 tracks, The Hussy seamlessly crafts a smart and catchy record that’s full of dark depth, torrid twists and sparkling surprises you’ll stumble upon after each repeated listen. As with Weed Seizure and Cement Tomb Mind Control, Pagan Hiss was recorded by BOBBY HUSSY at the band’s practice space in Madison, Wisconsin (with additional tracking done at Bobby Hussy’s home). Bobby Hussy’s engineering ensures the new record stays true to The Hussy’s vision of a crafted and produced recording that still has firm lo-fi roots. Guest appearances by JORDON DAVIS (of THE MYSTERY GIRLS fame) on organ, DEAD LUKE (Moon Glyph and Sacred Bones recording artist, ex-PINK REASON) on guitar and recorder and JUSTIN ATEN on violin help fill out the sound on a few of the tracks. Never a band to stagnate, the Hussy has already released TWO new 7" singles (their 6th and 7th respectively) and a brand new European Tour 10" EP alongside Pagan Hiss. Each of the four 2013 releases contain completely exclusive material!

The Hussy just returned home from a monthlong nine country European Tour and is embarking on a large scale two-part US Tour for the majority of the summer.

The Vinyl Revival - From The Frontline - Author Graham Jones on the indie shop’s return

Last Shop Standing

Last Shop Standing inspired by the book of the same name by Graham Jones takes you behind the counter to discover why nearly 2000 record shops have already disappeared across the UK. The film charts the rapid rise of record shops in the 1960's, 70's and 80's, the influence of the chart, the underhand deals, the demise of vinyl and rise of the CD as well as new technologies. Where did it all go wrong? Why were 3 shops a week closing? Will we be left with no record shops with the continuing rise of downloading? Hear from over 20 record shop owners and music industry leaders as well as musicians including Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Nerina Pallot, Richard Hawley and Clint Boon as they all tell us how the shops became and still are a part of their own musical education, a place to cherish and discover new bands and new music.
