After the groundswell of adoration for his album debut Life After Defo and the live shows that followed, Deptford Goth returns this Autumn with Songs, his second record of intensely slow-burning gems. Where the former was more affiliated with those seamless blenders of dreamy synth-pop, R&B and soul, Songs adds elements of singer-songwriter tradition to his irresistibly yearning electronica. “It wasn’t a conscious decision,” says Daniel Woolhouse. “But I’ve become more accepting of my voice, so it’s more prominent now, which led to structuring the songs in a more classic way. I also wanted people to hear the lyrics. It’s a process of being more upfront and honest.”
Songs‘ mood is still downbeat but tracks such ‘Two Hearts’ as ‘The Lovers’ would suggest he’s found more happiness in his life. “Life After Defo had bits of hope hidden inside but this one’s definitely more joyous,” Daniel agrees. “Instead of closing down I’m opening up and feeling more at peace with myself about certain things.”
Songs also bears the mark of its origins. Last year, Daniel left his south-east London flat where he recorded and Life After Defo for a place by the sea. “It’s pretty peaceful here,” he says. “And more space meant I could develop things a bit more.”
As if to underline his singular mission, Songs’ artwork echoes that of Life After Defo, being by the same artist, Jordan Kasey. “I wanted a continuation. I wanted something figurative, but that resembled a landscape too. It represents to me a connection between the physical self and it’s surroundings, which is one of the album’s themes.” Over 11 chapters, from dark to light and various points in between, Songs is a unique landscape of the mind, body and soul, and one of 2014’s most beautiful.

On September 13th, 1978, the RAMONES were guests in the tv-studios of Radio Bremen. It was the first tv-appearance of the band in Europe at all. For the at that time successful tv-series MUSIKLADEN they played 25 titles in about 50 minutes and left an ecstatic audience. Here is this unbelievable appearance - unabridged with all encores for the first time on vinyl & DVD. For the band it must have been quite a shock when they entered the stage at the tv-studio of Radio Bremen. Although the slightly ragged backdrop of MUSIKLADEN was okay to Joey, Dee Dee, Johnny and Marky Ramone, this was not valid to the main group of the audience. Joerg Sonntag, today director and editor, former assistant of Mike Leckebusch, remembers in an interview (bonus-title on the dvd) that the night before the concert he strolled around the bars and pubs of Bremen and gave away free tickets. The RAMONES performed songs mostly compounded out of their first two studio albums. Finally they succeeded to leave an overwhelmed audience. For the american punk legends this first tv-appearance not only meant hardest work but also the final breakthrough in Europe.

Devo captured live in Oakland, performing early experimental tracks. No matter how messy, beginnings are exciting. Especially when what happens next endures the test of time. For Devo the beginning happened in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio. The songs they wrote were raw and unfiltered with no commercial intent. They called it Hardcore Devo.

Produced by NICKELBACK, the album’s stand out lead single “Edge Of A Revolution” is soaring up rock radio charts, becoming one of the band’s fastest rising singles. Bolstered by thudding guitars and stadium-filling prowess that have been the hallmark of NICKELBACK’s sound, “Edge Of A Revolution” highlights the

Barsuk Records is pleased to reissue Cymbals Eat Guitars’ stunning debut Why There Are Mountains on vinyl. Originally self released in 2009, Why There Are Mountains seemed to appear out of nowhere to massive critical acclaim (partially thanks to Pitchfork bestowing the album with the much coveted Best New Music designation) and took the indie-rock world by storm. The band spent the following year and a half touring the world and sharing the stage with Los Campesinos!, The Thermals, The Flaming Lips, The Hold Steady and more before releasing their Barsuk debut Lenses Alien in 2011.

From the desk of King Tuff: This album changed my life in so many ways, as it slowly trickled out into the world. I never expected anyone to hear it, let alone connect with it. I never would have left Vermont, never met the boys at Burger Records or any of the other insane, beautiful, cartoonish characters that now populate my life in the best way. It's an expression of my infinitely teenage heart and soul, and I'm really proud of it. So here it is again, thanks to Burger Records. These songs belong to the Strutters and the Stutterers, the Headbangers and the Stoop Hangers, the Ruthies and the Gold Toothies, and of course, the A-N-I-M-A-L-S...

The bands 8th studio Album, simply entitled 'The Asteroid #4' finally gets very limited vinyl release which comes hand numbered. Over the last decade and a half they've built a trove of eight full length albums, well over a dozen compilation appearances, digital only rarity releases and multiple singles; a feat that many modern bands would certainly find daunting. They've impressively managed to grow this lengthy body of work whilst building a solid underground fanbase in the USA, aided by extensive touring with old psyche buddies: THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE & THE LILYS whilst still remaining solidly underground, cult band. The A4 sound is a hypnotic hybrid of several different genres filtered through the kaleidoscope of all things psychedelic, "Krautrock", "Shoegaze", folk and even 70s "Cosmic" country rock and despite never shying away from wearing their influences squarely on their sleeves, it's their longevity that has matured them to the point of originality rather than simply homage. It is that same longevity that has enabled them to do whatever they want, when they want, allowing them the freedom to experiment, which certainly makes up the foundation for anything truly "psychedelic".

The Art Of McCartney is a very special project celebrating the songs
of Sir Paul McCartney. It features McCartney classics such as Maybe
I’m Amazed, My, Love, The Long And Winding Road, When I’m 64, Let
It Be, Helter Skelter, Eleanor Rigby, Live And Let Die and many more,
recorded by some of the world’s greatest artists and all backed by

The Art Of McCartney is the brainchild of Los Angeles producer Ralph
Sall, who had the pleasure of working with Sir Paul in 2003 to revive a
song from the 1971 Ram sessions for a movie soundtrack. Once Ralph
had the idea of an album to honor Paul, he recruited McCartney’s gifted
backing band guitarists, Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray, keyboard player
Paul “Wix” Wickens, and drummer, Abe Laboriel, Jr. to play the backing
tracks of all the songs.
All aspects of Paul’s peerless back catalogue have been explored from
The Beatles to his experimental early solo work, to Wings and his latter
solo output. Whether it is The Cure’s Robert Smith, Corrine Bailey Rae,
Smokey Robinson, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel or Kiss singing, Paul’s timeless
songs are re-interpreted in a way that is both new and classic at the

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2009 album from the Mael brothers. The Seduction Of Ingmar Bergman is just over 60 minutes of wonderfully original music that tells a fantasy what if story. Though his films' themes have traditionally centred on matters of death, faith, God's existence, and the struggle to find love and meaning in our lives, Bergman is confronted in the musical by the lure of a mythological Hollywood seemingly at odds with all he stands for---a Hollywood that tempts him and ultimately tries to control him. What starts as an exploration by Bergman of the possible mutual benefits of his working in Hollywood turns into a Kafkaesque nightmare, a nightmare ended with the aid of a most unlikely saviour.

Alive 1997 reveals the French duo Daft Punk as one of the brightest entertainers in the occasionally stale world of album-based electronic dance. True, techno and house DJs can light up a crowd like few others, but the increasing artist slant of electronica often results in push-button programming and straight-from-DAT live performances, with most of the heavy lifting relegated to the lighting supervisor and effects computers. This brief glimpse at Daft Punk's live show circa 1997 (their major breakout year) is a tour de force of high-energy theatrics and flair. Aside from the pair of "WDPK" interludes, Alive 1997 includes only three tracks, but they're so radically different from their album versions that they're only barely familiar. The duo's biggest hit so far, "Da Funk," is stretched out to 16 minutes with a start-and-stop improvisation section that brings the crowd to a peak, while "Rollin' & Scratchin'" never looks back after breaking right on through the red-line. An energizing document, Alive 1997 is one of the few live records to approximate the excitement of the original live show.
The limited deluxe collection will include Alive 2007 on two solid white vinyl records along with a bonus vinyl with the show’s encore on one side and an etched pyramid logo on the other. This box comes with a 52-page book of photos taken during the 2007 tour, replica VIP pass, and a a slipmat, as well as a silver vinyl edition of the Alive 1997 album.
Widely Recognized As Cradle's Rawest And Most Authentic Black Metal Recording
Cradle of Filth helped usher in a wave of black metal with their wholly unique sound, rife with dark keyboard
melodies, vile riffs, and of course, Dani Filth's unmistakable vocals. The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh and V Empire, the first two official releases from the band stand as two of the most influential and outstanding metal records ever put to tape. These two releases, never officially released on vinyl in North America, will now be available on deluxe colored marble vinyl with gatefold covers! An essential part of any Cradle Of Filth or extreme metal fan's collection.

Timed to perfection, Daft Punk's second live album landed exactly ten years after the first, and provides a fitting complement to Alive 1997, easily the best live non-DJ electronica record ever released. While the original featured only a handful of tracks (but found them transformed and tweaked ad infinitum), Alive 2007 is packed with productions, most of them short and many of them getting a big crowd response (all recorded at one show in Paris in June of 2007). As on their first two classic full-lengths, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo display excellent crowd control, pacing the record well, spacing the hits, and building the mood like the good crowd-pleasers they are. It has the feel of a greatest-hits-live concert, but energized by Daft Punk's talents at weaving songs in and out of each other. Even songs from the comparatively desultory Human After All sound rejuvenated in context, with "Robot Rock" getting the show off to a rousing start. It may not be better or stronger than the original Alive 1997, but it's definitely harder and faster.

You Could Have It So Much Better is the second studio album by Glaswegian indie rock band Franz Ferdinand that was first released 3 October 2005 in the United Kingdom. Recorded in both the United States and their own studio in Glasgow with producer Rich Costey, the album gave birth to the release of four UK Top 30 singles "Do You Want To" on 23 August 2005, "The Fallen / L. Wells", "Walk Away" and "Eleanor Put Your Boots On." The album became the band's first UK #1 album and although their debut album was relatively successful in the USA, going platinum and reaching #32, You Could Have It So Much Better managed to reach #8 and earned gold status in the States. The cover design is modeled on Alexander Rodchenko's 1924 portrait of Lilya Brik. It was produced by Rick Costey and Franz Ferdinand.

The Sex Pistols legendary June 1967 Manchester gig and the first performance of Magazine both inspired vocalist Alan Hempsall to form Crispy Ambulance in 1978. The band released their seminal and only full lenght LP, The Plateau Phase, in 1982 on Factory Benelux. This avant-garde sound is now considered an influence on post-punk, post-rock, gothic rock and other atmospheric/melodic music with an artistic edge. Full of complex yet minimalistic strings of music that surprise with intricacy and force, this collection sounds as relevant today as in the year of its initial release. Faithfully reproduced aurally and visually, one can hear the influences of Brian Eno, Popul Vuh, and Joy Division pressing through Crispy Ambulance's strummings and croonings on this utterly original work. A truly haunting tour de force.

Puscifer is the brainchild of Tool/A Perfect Circle front man Maynard James Keenan. Spin said of the debut album: "...sharp and giant-sounding, with a delightfully subversive sense of melody" while Kerrang described the set as "Filthy, sexy, electronic beats that writhe and shake it like Tool never could." With Conditions of My Parole, Keenan retreated to his Arizona homestead, recording the twelve-track album he describes as "Twin Peaks in the desert." The result is twelve slightly sinister yet perversely danceable songs that use the notoriously reclusive Keenan's surroundings as inspiration.

Ranked 71/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
The second of three consecutive masterpieces Neil Young recorded between 1969 and 1972, After the Gold Rush captures the vibes, emotions, and cautious optimism of the era better than any album of its time. Moreover, it contains a host of impeccably written and performed songs that transcend the period and stand as an inextricable part of the American conscious.
Recorded at Youngs Topanga Canyon Ranch and featuring backing from the legendary Crazy Horse, the then-unknown prodigy Nils Lofgren, and several other friends, the 1970 album embraces many of the seemingly artistic contradictions and eccentric diversity that have made Young so peerless. The title track, a devastatingly gorgeous balladic meditation on the '60s and a warning of what may come in the 1970s, proved prophetic. Every other song is equally spectacular and significant.
The bristling whip-crack of Southern Man furthered Youngs no-holds-barred political commentary and prompted a response song in the form of Lynyrd Skynyrds Sweet Home Alabama, an anthem that its target praised. The country heartache of Oh, Lonesome Me simultaneously plays off and into the romantic spirit of the uplifting Dont Let It Bring You Down and the exuberant romp of When You Dance You Can Really Love. In one swoop, Young and company traverse the Heartland, Southern plantations, Appalachian valleys, and Los Angeles hills.
Having languished for decades, this masterwork (named as one of the '100 Best Albums of All-Time' by Rolling Stone) has finally received the long-overdue sonic treatment its deserved. Remastered from the original tapes by Youngs expert team and overseen by the artist himself, After the Gold Rush now sounds better than ever. Young has never sounded so immediate, detailed, rich, or present on a studio album.
The record joins 1968's Neil Young, 1969s Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, and 1972s Harvest as part of the initial batch of Young recordings pristinely mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high-quality audiophile-grade LP, and packaged in sleeves that faithfully mirror those of the originals.
