The Last Shadow Puppets are Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane (The Rascals). Firm friends ever since the Arctic Monkeys toured with KaneÆs previous group, The Little Flames, the pair were so inspired by listening to the likes of Scott Walker, early Bowie and David Axelrod, that they hatched a plan. The result, The Age of the Understatement, is an album of 12 full-blooded songs, bold and brassy, full of drama, wit and melody, that source the past but avoid falling into pastiche. Both Miles and Alex are 22, and this is a youthful record, full of life and the sheer pleasure of music making. The Last Shadow Puppets recorded the songs at Black Box studios near Nantes, France in two weeks during the summer of 2007, with producer and drummer James Ford. The band then approached Owen Pallett to arrange and conduct the orchestration of the tracks, which were recorded by the 22 piece London Metropolitan Orchestra at British Grove studios in London over Christmas.

Two years after the split of Bauhaus in 1983,
former members Daniel Ash, David J, and Kevin
Haskins came together to form Love and Rockets.
Combining Bauhaus’s signature gothic sound with
new elements of glam rock, pop, and psychedelics,
the band developed a cult following throughout
the late 80s. Their debut album Seventh Dream
of Teenage Heaven showcases this divergence of
sound, fully embracing a unique combination of
dark, hypnotic psychedelics, and synthpop.
For fans of Bauhaus, Echo and the Bunnymen,
Jesus and Mary Chain, and The Cure.

999, named for the British emergency phone number, was among the first wave of punk bands to emerge in 1977 from England’s summer of hate. Fully embodying the anger and frustration of the time, 999 delivered fast, hard-edged pop songs with poignant venomous relevancy that helped carve out that historical musical movement. By 1980’s The Biggest Prize in Sport—often considered the band’s masterpiece—999 had honed their craft to perfection, offering one of rock’s greatest albums.

The litany of SoCal hardcore classics continues at Drastic Plastic Records with the reissue of one of the all time greats: Wild in the Streets by the Circle Jerks.
The Circle Jerks have come to typify the last great youth movement in America: The hardcore punk movement of he late 1970s and early ‘80s. Wild in the Streets, the band’s second album, is the Jerks in classic form: poignant, political, sarcastic and raunchy. And the cover features a gang of youths led by none other than Mike Ness, of Social Distortion. Wild in the Streets proceeds Golden Shower of Hits also available on Drastic Plastic Records.
ORIGINAL MASTER: Our Wild in the Streets reissue was mastered from the original, Jerks-approved mix which only appeared on the first vinyl pressing in 1982, and never on CD.

Sonically, it is radically different from anything else coming out of the New York underground at the time, and it set the template for the singular concoction of heavy psychedelic music, krautrock, and a worship of pure sound they have explored in different variations ever since. Throughout the album the band explores themes of greed, misinformation, war, hypocrisy and their outcomes within the world’s political and economic systems, presenting these weighty topics with the same air of mystic understanding that underpins their music. Glitter Glamour Atrocity includes the song “Under Skin Or By Name,” the longest running staple in the band’s live set, which the band performed in the acclaimed film Only Lovers Left Alive at the request of director Jim Jarmusch. It is one of only two performances in the movie, which is enamored with the music making process and record collector culture.

Last summer Imelda May became a mother for the first time. You might expect her to turn to singing ballads. You would be horribly wrong.
“There are no lullabies on this album,” laughs the lady who's brought rockabilly back into fashion sixty years after it was kicked into life by young men like
Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent and Jerry Lee Lewis.
“Tribal” is as primal a rock 'n' roll record as you could ever find, infused with the spirit of Sun Studios, where the sound was born in Memphis, Tennessee -
but given a 21st century kick up the butt by a girl from the back streets of Dublin.
Tribal” – her third album, following “Love Tattoo” and the Top Ten hit “Mayhem” - is her punchiest yet.
The songs on “Tribal” are infused with the rebel spirit that launched rock 'n' roll on an unsuspecting world way back in the mid-1950s, but also the rebel
spirit of the punk bands Imelda admired growing up in Dublin in the late 1970s as the youngest of five siblings – The Clash and The Undertones, The
Buzzcocks and The Cramps.
The motto for the way Imelda lives her life is the title of her new single 'It's Good To Be Alive'. “I wrote it in the early hours of the morning one day after I
had the baby,” she reveals. “I was sleep-deprived and feeling very exhausted. I looked out of the window, watched the sun rise through the trees and felt
– God, it's good to be alive!”
Other song titles sum up Imelda's zest for life. 'It's Good To Be Alive'. 'I Wanna Dance'. 'Wicked Way'. 'Wild Woman'. Especially the latter, with its chorus:
“There's a wild woman livin' inside of me/A wicked, wicked wild woman, dyin' to be free”. “You see people toning it down and becoming more responsible
as they get older. But inside, there's still the lunatic inside”

MOTEL BEDS are a rock & roll band from Dayton, Ohio—a delightfully detached underdog city nestled in the heart of The Heartland. Seasoned veterans, Beds have worked alongside local advocates Kelley Deal (Deal duets on the lusciously hushed “Tropics of the Sand”) and Robert Pollard (guitarist Derl Robbins records Guided By Voices). Allies aside, when it comes to rock & roll, Motel Beds speak for themselves. ”These Are the Days Gone By” reveals the fruits of Beds’ labor these latter years. The album is an electrifying collection of “hits,” remastered by Carl Saff (GBV, Dinosaur Jr., etc.) and featuring added bass parts by new(est) member and local ace Tod Weidner. Over a 12-song cycle, the proficiency with which Tommy Cooper and P.J. Paslosky—Motel Beds’ core songwriting duo—augment a solid hook is set on display.

Written and recorded across a series of recording sessions in April of 2014 (some of which were open to selected media from around the world), none of the music on High Life existed before Someday World was completed! The resulting record, at 6 tracks and 45 minutes, is the clearest expression yet of the 'Reichkuti' (Steve Reich meets Fela Kuti) direction that first brought the Eno Hyde collaboration into being. And as the polyrhythms and melodies build, swirl and syncopate, the album feels truly alive with the energy of this time in the studio. High Life reunites Eno and Hyde with the 20 year old producer/multi-instrumentalist Fred Gibson, previous Eno-collaborator Leo Abrahams on guitar, drummer Chris Vatalaro, and keyboardist Don E. Taken alongside Someday World, it provides a fascinating insight in to how consistent influences can lead to very different but connected music, and continues to tell the story of two iconic musicians collaborating and exploring together. We look forward to seeing how fans select their own favorites across the two albums.

Chelsea Wolfe’s sound is best described with broad strokes: elemental, intense, radiant, ancient yet modern, intimate yet expansive, dark and sparkling. Hues of black metal and deep blues inform her ever-evolving electric folk – a warm force that wraps itself around the listener, encouraging uplift, seeking triumph. After The Grime & The Glow, Wolfe relocated to Los Angeles and recorded her second album, 2011’s Apokalypsis, which found her in an actual studio with her live band.

Hues of black metal and deep blues inform her ever-evolving electric folk – a warm force that wraps itself around the listener, encouraging uplift, seeking triumph. She began toting around an 8-track and recording as the mood hit, eventually editing her findings into a breathtaking debut album, 2010’s the Grime & The Glow. Marrying the gentle intimacy of folk, the atmospheric voodoo of death rock, and the bleak, sullen nihilism of black metal.

When unassuming young Orkney music-maker Erland Cooper picked up his guitar and travelled the length of the country to play a show in London’s
Notting Hill, little did he know that a chance encounter with musical veteran Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good The Bad & The Queen, and Gorillaz)
would be the start of a unique songwriting friendship. Together they formed Erland & The Carnival and now, nearly a decade later, arrives Closing Time –
the band’s third, most accomplished album yet.
Opening a new chapter, Closing Time is an understated, inward looking collection of songs that feature stunning string arrangements and Erland’s
impassioned vocals at centre stage. But rather than the modern folk adaptations of traditional songs, children’s poems, and ancient literature on the
band’s earlier albums or the pair’s recent conceptual folklore project The Magnetic North, this time the band tell tales of a more personal nature.
“Previously we didn’t know what we wanted to say or how to say it and would use stories and direct references to help us get to a place we could feel
secure,” admits Simon. Erland adds; “in making this record we discarded an album’s worth of material that sounded like the first two albums. We wanted
to make something different – doing another Jackson C Frank cover wasn’t an option.”
Above all, Closing Time is the very first time the listener can truly hear the wholly collaborative process that is Erland & The Carnival. Lyrical and musical
duties have always been shared, yet here the combined creativity of the pair’s working friendship is only solidified with Erland taking a more ‘hands on’
approach to production. The string arrangements, brought about by the album’s unashamed twisted and selfish love song ‘Quiet Love’, were scored by
Simon before being recorded by a quartet in his living room later that week.
Recorded in Damon Albarn’s studio13 with previous Erland & The Carnival engineer Steve Sedgewick and mixed by London Grammar producer Tim Bran
with Paul Weller guesting on two tracks. Despite creating more than 40 songs in the process of writing the album (“Some of the song melodies and ideas
on this may have even been written when I was 21 to be honest. ‘Hopeless’ certainly was,” admits Erland), it was a brilliantly spontaneous and productive
time taking just over 3 days to come to fruition. “We learnt to be incredibly disciplined” tells Simon. “It feels like pruning a tree – when you cut away the
needless and weaker branches, what you get is something much fresher and stronger coming through.”

“Sharp, creative and bringing a commendable freshness to the sometimes drearily derivative world of contemporary rock, Empires are a remarkably good
rock ‘n’ roll band. In a world full of faceless, regurgitated rhythms and emotion-by-numbers, the band’s music is strikingly compact, precise and non-excessive: There is a there there, and there are no wasted notes anywhere…Their music is some of this year’s very best”
Produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Cloud Nothings, The War on Drugs, Explosions in the Sky), Orphan is a collection of songs immersed in classic
post punk and indie rock ‘n’ roll circa 1989-1991, exploring the sonic adventurers and emotional heft of artists such as Roxy Music, Wire, and Nick Cave &
The Bad Seeds.
The guitars are rich and atmospheric, the rhythms subtle and fluid yet more powerful at the same time. Throughout the album, singer SeanVan Vleet’s
raw croon rises to match the band’s musicality, conveying anxieties, secrets, and a heartfelt longing for transcendence.

Psychocandy is the debut studio album by Scottish alternative rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain. It was released in November 1985 on Blanco y Negro Records. The album is considered a landmark recording: its combination of guitar feedback with traditional pop song structures proved influential on the forthcoming shoegaze genre and alternative rock in general.

Against the bleeding-heart backdrop of Times Square at the Novotel Hotel, The Drums announced they will be releasing their third full-length,
Noisey surprised everyone by premiering the first single, “Magic Mountain” on July 15. In fact it was the first song The Drums have released in nearly 3
years, marking a return to the two founding core members of Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham. Spin says “the new single is still guided by that infectious
head-bobbery, but the Brooklyn indie-popper's blithe bounce takes on a fervent frenzy.” Baeble noted the prevailing “sheen of gloom and apprehension,” a
departure that Paste says “stirs in sounds in all the right ways.”
‘Encyclopedia’ is The Drums’ third full-length album. Emerging from Brooklyn via Florida in 2009, they smashed on the scene with their ‘Summertime!’ EP
that led to a spot on the BBC Sound of 2010 shortlist, The ShockWaves NME Tour, and the publication’s Phillip Hall Radar Award.
The Drums‘ music often explores the themes of loss, nostalgia, redemption, vulnerability, and love – with critic’s raves embracing both the lyrics and their
sonic signature. This time around, they’ve embraced a darker sound while making it as grand and majestic as they please.
‘Encyclopedia’ is full of "magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout," says Jonny. The upcoming LP marks the first
time since the ‘Summertime!’ EP that Jacob and Jonny were left to their own devices, without having to ask a soul for approval. The result is an exciting
display of personal emotion and unashamed, majestic songwriting style. In September, The Drums hit the road for the first time since the 2012.

"Monolith of Inhumanity", the follow-up to 2009's monumental "The Harvest Floor", shows Cattle Decapitation continuing right where they left off. The musical evolution of the band continues with just enough changes to keep the listener on their toes throughout the blast, gore and eerily melodic proceedings. "Monolithâ€¦" will continue to cement Cattle's legacy as one of the most influential and important bands in extreme music. As MetalSucks.net puts it: "Cattle Decapitation have the sort of skills that put them squarely at the head of grind's noisy pack."

Remastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Analog Masters
Rainbow Bridge is being reissued on vinyl, reintroduced with original album art and track orders and remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog masters.
Rainbow Bridge was compiled and mixed by Eddie Kramer and Mitch Mitchell in 1971, with the help of Electric Lady Studios engineer John Jansen. Most of the tracks were recorded in 1969 and 1970, during the same sessions that spawned The Cry Of Love. Rainbow Bridge is often misconstrued as being an entirely live album, being that the film of the same name features excerpts of a live Jimi Hendrix performance in Maui. However, Hendrix had no role in the creation of the rambling, unfocused 1971 film which was directed by Chuck Wein. The film was not a Hendrix project in any way but instead an independent vision of his manager Michael Jeffery. After Hendrix's death in September 1970, Jeffery scrapped Hendrix's original vision of a double studio album titled First Rays Of The New Rising Sun and called for Kramer, Mitchell and Jansen to compile two posthumous albums—including one that would that would serve as a soundtrack for the Rainbow Bridge film.
Mitchell, Kramer and Jansen drew upon Hendrix's rich trove of studio recordings that the guitarist had been developing at Electric Lady Studios. Songs such as ''Dolly Dagger'' and ''Room Full Of Mirrors'' were bright examples of Hendrix's new creative direction. Other standouts on the album included a studio rendition of ''Star Spangled Banner'' as well as the majestic ''Hey Baby (New Rising Sun).'' The one live track on the album, an extraordinary rendition of Hendrix's original blues composition ''Hear My Train A Comin''' is taken from a performance at Berkeley Community Theatre in May of 1970, and not in the film at all. Buddy Miles and Noel Redding both appear on one track each, and the Ronettes provide backing vocals on ''Earth Blues.''
After Hendrix's death in September 1970, First Rays Of The New Rising Sun was scrapped and instead two posthumous albums were created from the sessions, including one that would serve as a soundtrack for the Rainbow Bridge film.
