    Exploding Head

    Exploding Head is A Place To Bury Strangers' sophomore album and first for Mute. The band had one simple goal during the recording process: The original idea, says vocalist/guitarist Oliver Ackermann, was to create the craziest, most f'ed-up recording ever.


    In late 2008, shortly following a support slot on MGMT's U.K. tour, APTBS began tracking new songs at Death By Audio, the rehearsal/recording/living space that Ackermann helped build in 2005. The DIY-or-die building is also an independent venue and the headquarters of Ackermann's Death By Audio company, a customized guitar pedal manufacturer that counts U2, TV on the Radio and My Bloody Valentine among its many happy customers.


    During the Exploding Head recording process engineer Andy Smith (Paul Simon, David Bowie) took the band to a whole other level says Ackermann. I love the interplay and contrasts between something that's pretty and something that's scary, he explains. Taking listeners to different places, even in one song, is so important, whether it makes them cry or pissed off. If you listen closely, some of the riffs on this record are actually like Ramones songs or '60s bubblegum pop.

    Onwards To The Wall

    Without any official testing, Dead Oceans can safely say that the master recording for Onwards to the Wall is the loudest one ever submitted to the label for approval. Usually, they crank the volume to catch any digital pops or hisses that may foil a master. But this one they actually had to, ashamedly, put at half volume. This thing is pummeling. Theres no other way to capture the music of A Place To Bury Strangers than just beyond the boundary of whats considered properly loud. Produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by APTBS themselves, this is the sound of a band in control of making out of control music.


    Onwards to the Wall packs every bit of the searing sonic maelstrom listeners have come to expect from APTBS. Yet, the adroit songcraft thats always been there is brought more to the fore, pop hooks are repurposed and more instantly recognizable. Now joined by bassist Dion Lunadon, formerly of The D4, Ackerman has found a crucial companion in pulling timeless melodies from their jet engine textures. Standout So Far Away takes all the pure pop perfection of The Box Tops The Letter and shoots it through with a barely-harnessed dark energy and snarling propulsion. The title track carries a similar balance of classic, '60s-pop hooks and doomed-out vibes, employing a boy-girl vocal trade-off thats at once both sexy and menacing.


    Onwards to the Wall is a fresh, complete artistic statement from A Place To Bury Strangers . Its a new chapter, a prelude for what awaits us on the horizon. It is a taste of greatness to come.

    Worship

    Guitars as jet engines; guitars as haunted electronics; guitars as filling-melting white heat: A Place To Bury Strangers' new album Worship is explosive, visceral, and dark. APTBS' DIY-braintrust of Death By Audio wizard Oliver Ackermann and bassist Dion Lunadon continue the evolution of songwriting that began with Onwards to the Wall, the band's 2011 EP.


    Now on Worship, they interweave threads of krautrock, dream-pop, and '80s goth without ever losing the edge that is quintessentially A Place To Bury Strangers. Unhinged dissonance is artfully framed within a fiercely dynamic and assured melodic sensibility. Standout You Are The One is a coldwave white squall, with Ackerman coming through like an austere and menacing Damo Suzuki. Later on Dissolved, the band methodically builds an atmospheric battle charge only to take a hard left mid-song into pure, shimmering Cure territory. There are ambitious, trend-bucking choices at every turn.


    This album was written, recorded, mixed and mastered by A Place To Bury Strangers. It is our vision of what our music should sound like in 2012, not someone else's interpretation, says Lunadon. Every sound on the album is made by us and our tools; tools created by us, used on no other recordings, and purposefully built for this project. This is real. Some of it is the band being in complete control; bending, shaping and building the songs and the sounds. Other parts are the band relinquishing control and letting the songs and sounds take over and produce themselves.We are not trying to reinvent ourselves, but simply push ourselves further in all aspects of our music.


    We made this, we recorded this, we did everything, adds Ackerman. Yes, we chose to do this and no, we didn't have to but we think it is pretty cool. No producer made us. We didn't go to school for any of this and we don't have time for tutorials. We invented this and now we are sharing it with you.

    Transfixiation


    Limited To 2,000 Copies Worldwide


    [A Place to Bury Strangers] sculpts something unexpectedly elegant out of the type of din you'd expect to
    hear on an airport tarmac - SPIN MAGAZINE


    Hypnotic and forward-looking, A Place to Bury Strangers sound more vital than ever"- ALLMUSIC


    A real sonic adventure that never relinquishes its grip on structure, despite the fact that the guitar effects
    pedals are practically stomped into the floor- POPMATTERS


    That's the most intense fear and feeling-when you go to a show and you're actually scared, says Oliver
    Ackermann, guitarist and frontman of Brooklyn trio A Place To Bury Strangers.


    Or you can palpably feel the danger in the music, adds bassit Dion Lunadon, Like it's going to fall apart
    at any moment and the players doing it are so in the moment they don't give a shit about anything else.
    They're just going for it. It's a gutter kinda vibe; everything about it is icky and evil and dangerous.


    The same could be said the band's fourth album, Transfixiation. Rather than fixate on the minute details
    like they may have done in the past, the group, rounded out by drummer Robi Gonzalez, trust their
    instincts and try to keep things as pure as possible. Music is much more exhilarating when it's
    unpredictable even on repeat plays, and this is very much an unpredictable record. Gonzalez makes his
    recording debut with the band here, and it's obvious that he's helped pushed the band's recordings closer
    to the level of their infamous live shows.


    The one thing we have in common is this fire when we're playing, adds Gonzalez. I don't know; it's real
    intense.

    Pinned

    A couple of years ago, A Place to Bury Strangers were in search of a new
    drummer. Lia Simone Braswell, an L.A. native, had recently moved to
    New York, and was playing drums in shows around Brooklyn "just to keep
    her chops up." As it turned out, APTBS bassist Dion Lunadon caught one
    of those shows and, after seeing her play, was moved to ask her if she'd
    want to come to a band practice sometime.


    For well over a decade now, A Place to Bury Strangers-Lunadon, founding
    guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann, and, officially, Lia Braswell-have
    become well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable,
    often bewildering live shows, and total, some might say dangerous
    volume.


    This April marks the release of Pinned, their fifth full-length and an album
    that finds them converting difficult moments into some of their most
    urgent work to date. It's their first since the 2016 election, and their first
    since the 2014 closing of Death By Audio, the beloved Brooklyn DIY space
    where Ackermann lived, worked, and created with complete freedom.


    There are searing meditations on truth and government-led conspiracies
    ("Execution"), as well as haunting, harmonized responses to the tensions
    of our current political climate ("There's Only One of Us"). It all opens
    with "Never Coming Back," a frightening crescendo of group vocals,
    vertiginous guitar work, and Lunadon's unrelenting bass. It's a clear and
    honest statement of intent, not just for everything that follows, but for
    this band as a whole.

    Gray Waves (Discontinued)

    Hailing from Athens, GA, Twin Tigers are ready to unleash their dynamic sound unto the world. Along with other elements of the past five decades of rock music, Twin Tigers blend noise textures with pop structure and shoegaze overtones shaping a sound that's all new.


    Formed by co-workers at the Grit restaurant, guitarist/vocalist Matthew Rain and bassist Aimee Morris began Twin Tigers as their previous bands dissolved. In February of 2008, the Curious Faces/Violet Future EP was released to critical acclaim. The band quickly started building a solid fan base throughout the southeast and played shows with Deerhunter, Dead Confederate, Black Lips, Dungen, Woods, Snowden and A Place to Bury Strangers.


    After a slew of revolving guitarists and drummers the band debuted its current lineup with drummer Doug Crump and guitarist Forrest Hall, opening for Les Savy Fav at the Earl in Atlanta only a few weeks before their first trip to SXSW 2009. Upon returning from SXSW, the band began recording Gray Waves which is being released courtesy of Brooklyn based Old Flame Records.

    Passage (Awaiting Repress)

    Brooklyn, NY's Exitmusic, comprised of Devon Church and Aleksa Palladino, present their debut album, Passage. The 10-song set is a collection of newly-written songs and some of their older tunes that received some new coats of paint. Here, the two tethers that make up Exitmusic's sound, one stirring atmospherics, one of grandioise and thoughtful pop, are let to bow further out than ever before. They are, however, also pulled into a tighter, sharper knot at the center. There are big, emotional dynamic shifts, and a wave-crashing momentum across the set without ever breaking a sustained feeling of tenderness. It's dream-pop for those of us whose dreams are Lawrence of Arabia-epic in scope: lulling, apocalyptic, celestial, triumphant.


    Recorded at Rare Book Room in Brooklyn with mixer Nicholas Vernhes (Dirty Projectors, Deerhunter), Church and Palladino, along with the assistance of new bandmates drummer Dru Prentiss and live electronics by Nicholas Shelestak, built on the chilling, beautiful aesthetic they had created as a duo when recording at home. The result is a sound that is more powerful and more nuanced, covering broad oceans of emotional terrain. Opener and title track "Passage" is like watching a great shifting of tides through rapid time-lapse photography, introducing new dynamics in one magnificent breath. It is a statement of intent that tears down the Victorian boudoir gauze found on previous efforts. The ghosts are still piercing the veil, but now they're throwing chairs. The song begins gently, with candlelight piano plucks, distant explosions on the horizon, aching breaths and moans. But in moments, the oceans swell and lurch as it detonates into a shower of brilliant shrapnel.


    Elsewhere, on album standout "The Night," Exitmusic's gaze moves upwards with chiming, blurry guitars, the heavenly sighs of Palladino in the background and one of the album's finest choruses in the foreground. And "Storms" sounds like Peng-era Stereolab as seen through a fun house carnival mirror. The album has a bona fide, fist-pumping anthem "The Modern Age" and closes elegantly with the starkly devastating "Sparks of Light. Simply put: This is arena goth.


    Passage is a longtime in the making, and certainly worth the wait. Church and Palladino started writing together several years ago, when the Canadian-born Church moved to New York City, Palladino's home, following a year teaching English in Taiwan and India. Their collective sonic interests: layers, textures, churning, spacious guitars (Palladino had been playing hers since age 12), blinking electronics, shimmering vocals, created a fruitful writing partnership immediately. Their songs began to take on new dimensions when the pair moved to Los Angeles a year later, finally committing their compositions to the recording process. A few twists and turns, and a move back to New York City, later, Exitmusic found a home with Secretly Canadian who released their first EP, From Silence, in the Fall of 2011. Critical raves for the four song collection poured in globally, with everyone from New York Magazine to The Guardian heralding the band's arrival. With the new live line-up, Exitmusic will have toured with artists such as Phantogram, School of Seven Bells, The Joy Formidable and A Place To Bury Strangers.

    The World Is Real (Awaiting Repress)

    LAKE's comprehensive pop vision has always been anchored in an honest mournfulness, a sensitivity to nature, and the vulnerability of life. These mark
    LAKE's more down tempo, contemplative grooves, which are given their fullest voice yet on The World Is Real, LAKE's fourth album for K and sixth overall.
    It follows 2008's Oh, the Places We'll Go, 2009's Let's Build A Roof, and 2011's Giving & Receiving, and was similarly recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio at K headquarters in their hometown of Olympia, Washington.


    The songwriting partnership of Ashley Eriksson and Eli Moore is the locus of LAKE's creative engine, but the additional members are as integral and
    longstanding. They are the diversely talented Andrew Dorsett, Markly Morisson, and Lindsay Schief. The creative sound that surrounds LAKE is storied in collaboration, sonic adventure and an allegiance to exploring the limits of crafting pop songs. They have toured, recorded and allied with some of the most pioneering figures in contemporary independent music: R. Stevie Moore, Chris Cohen, Karl Blau, and Phil Elverum's Mt. Eerie, for example.


    Lead track Do You Recall? offers wide and subtle nods to working-class 80's classics like Mellencamp's Jack & Diane, or Hornsby's The Way It Is. Featuring drum machine and nostalgic guitar riffs, the lead and group vocals float through droning synths like wind to a bounded world.


    Dog in the Desert one of the album's centerpieces, was initially inspired by the text-works of conceptual artist, Richard Long, and his "art made by walking in landscapes" (richardlong.org). Eriksson's voice, and the dark plodding instrumentation of the song, take Long's images and shape them into a meditation on abandonment, loss and reconciliation with nature.


    Tellingly, the earthbound bass groove on Dog in the Desert is a quotation of Steely Dan's Black Cow. It is not the only song to directly live sample Fagen and Becker: Perfect Fit mashes up the chordal rhythms of Peg to excellent effect.
    It's clear that LAKE enjoys to boldly tread and rework the classics in this way, most notably in Mark Morrison's first personal LAKE offering Takin' My Time, a direct reference to the Isley Brothers song "Caravan of Love." This smooth R&B pop seducer - a wild crowd favorite at LAKE's local Olympia outings - is a bit of an aside from The World Is Real's more meditative core.


    Other highlights on The World Is Real: Bury the House takes its 60's styled psychedelic setting for a playful, self-deprecating riff on LAKE's own new age-y ideals: Bury the house / under the garden / make an attempt to go outside. Composure and "I Wish For You" have the pop attributes of Pet Sounds and Smile era Beach Boys - faintly forlorn, but still warm and sweet. And the community oriented compassion exhibited by LAKE's members is beautifully summarized in the opening lines of album closer Reconcile: How do we exist under the sun
    but not in bliss? / What could have been? / Act on it.


    Lovers of hybrid pop will hear the bright whirring electronic keys that notably set McCartney II apart from the rest of Paul's catalog, as well as the bittersweet organ and keyboard influence of Yo La Tengo, and the minimalist funk of Talking Heads on
    this record. However, precise comparison is difficult: The World is Real avoids easy genre comparisons. An album full of the articulation of discontent and loss, LAKE captures these emotions in tandem with the pop music joys they have so expertly reigned in for many years.

    Duskland

    "He dwells in the same darkness as Cass McCombs, punctuating the cobwebbed stillness with lowing organ and severe, almost pagan imagery. The Crimson moon, the city of refuge: Thesewould be hapless signi ers in
    another singer's mouth. Cale's drawl molds them back into tremendous fra gments, oating in a skyline somewhere just beyond the dusk. All of Duskland possesses that same fantastic self-assurance." -Stereogum


    Zachary Cale has been releasing records under his own name for just shy of a decade. Duskland,
    the title of his latest record, is a work of craftsmanship full of elegant lyricism and mysterious
    imagery; a collection of songs that look directly into the face of darkness yet drive beyond it,
    forging new paths.


    Allegorical in nature, Cale's songs move away from the inward reveries of his last album, Blue Rider,
    and divide outward into the voices of others. The album projects images of wide-open spaces and
    landscapes constructed from half remembered dreams. There isn't always a clear resolution, characters
    remain in a state of twilight, wandering from place to place in search of an undefined illumination. The
    lyric: So many lifetimes I lived in one / I've got to bury them now / No surprises this time around /
    Not beneath this crown, taken from I Left The Old Cell, aptly captures the human complexities found
    throughout the songs.


    Taking cues from artists like Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind era Dylan and Nick Cave's work with the
    Bad Seeds, Duskland evokes a restless spirit, one that is informed by American myths and tall tales.
    There's a Western flair to many of the album's songs with nods to soundtrack composers such as
    Morricone and the dream-laden noir of Badalamenti. Many of the album's highlights maintain a
    ceremonial grace. Sundowner opens the album with a lush organ progression played over a
    plaintive march. As the tension builds, Cale muses Branded as a fugitive / Dressed in the clothes
    of an innocent / Sirens ricochet / From bloodless lips I hear them call my name. From there the
    album moves forward like one long processional; Cale leads his band through up-tempo folk rock
    and charming country waltzes to minor key dirges and atmospheric instrumentals until ending with a
    horn section dragging over a funeral beat in the long form ballad Low Light Serenade.

    Pygmalion

    Import

    When Slowdive disbanded in 1995 music fans widely associated it with the demise of the shoegaze genre. Their last sign of life was Pygmalion and it was, after Just For A Day and Souvlaki a totally different and more abstract album. Where the band attempted to put more song structures in place on Souvlaki, they began to incorporate more elements of ambient electronica on Pygmalion. Which resulted in a more complete album than the two previous albums. Tracks like Blue Skied An' Clear and Crazy For You demonstrate that the songs are still there, somewhere -- they're just buried under more abstract sounds than before.

    1922 (Original Score) (Pre-Order)

    Mike Patton's (Faith No More, Dead Cross) expanded score to the Stephen King sourced Netflix film, 1922, is set for release via Ipecac Recordings.


    The release serves as Patton's scoring follow-up to his critically-acclaimed composition to The Place Beyond The Pines, a musical outing that Pitchfork said served as "the glue uniting the film's three disparate sections and many different tones" and Movie Music UK said Patton offered an "intelligent way of arranging his collages of sounds into fascinating musical effects."


    1922 is based on Stephen King's 131-page story, telling of a man's confession of his wife's murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story's unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.

    Screen Memories

    John Maus is a truly enigmatic musician. Broadly cut from the synth pop cloth, he's fashioned the
    frosty minimalism of its fabric into a cloak of infinite meaning, genuine grace and absurdist humor
    over the course of three defining albums since 2006. His music is a highly mutable affair, whilst
    often described as retro-futurist on behalf of the 80's drum machines and synth sounds employed,
    John's music is more personal than the nostalgic re-tread implied. There's a cinematic quality to
    his songs, with pathos conjured through propelling bass-lines, trailing arpeggios and of course his
    deeply resonant vocal. Moroder helped map out the territory but Maus is more interested in seeking
    cadence through his love of Renaissance polyphony and the experimentation behind post punk. It's
    an amalgamation of musical ideas as radical as its intent.


    Maus is a "man out of time" trying to make sense of the inhumanity of our world through his
    mobilisation of the language of punk rock. His aim is true as he reaches for the seemingly impossible.
    It's a want to emerge as part of greater multiplicity, to appear, to become, to connect that powers his
    songs and the man himself.


    It's now been six years since the widely lauded 2011's 'We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of
    Ourselves' appeared like a thunderbolt of maniacal energy and turned everyone's heads. Now
    regarded an experimental pop classic, Pitiless Censors was a huge breakthrough for Maus as a
    recognised artist and led to a vast reappraisal of his past work. Debut album 2006's Songs and the
    masterful follow up 2008's Love Is Real sounded better than ever the second time round for this
    groundswell of new followers. After touring Pitiless Censors around the world and pulling together
    a collection of rarities and unreleased tracks, Maus then returned to academic pursuits. In 2014, he
    was awarded a doctorate in Political Philosophy for his dissertation on communication and control.
    Shortly thereafter, he began building his own modular synthesizer, etching the printed circuit boards,
    soldering components, and assembling panels, until he had an instrument that matched his vision.
    With this prodigious task completed Maus turned his hand back to song writing and began work on
    what is now his fourth album proper Screen Memories.


    'Screen Memories' was written, recorded, and engineered by Maus over the last few years in his
    home in Minnesota, known genially as the Funny Farm. It's a solitary place situated in the corn plains
    of rural American Midwest. The landscape is as majestic as it is austere and inevitably some of the
    sub-zero winter temperatures creep into the songs as do the buzzing wasps of summer.


    Through the whole album Maus has an undeniable talent in grasping the mettle of each song,
    reaching within and building up a sincere core, before teasing out the edges in acknowledgement to
    the very ridiculousness of its existence. Rather than creating these songs through an enjoyment of the
    process Maus considers himself more in the role of someone discovering them buried just beneath
    the surface. Perhaps the songs presented here are the ones that mask his real intentions, Freud
    pressing record and turning the TV channel to snow. All we can be certain of now though is that John
    Maus is back and he sounds gloriously alive. The triumph of the human is upon us and all the false
    gods and bad jokes will be the first to fall.

    Before The Flood

    Before the Flood on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Live 1974 Set Documents Acclaimed Reunion of Bob Dylan and The Band


    Mobile Fidelity's Reissue Gives You a Prime Seat for the Historic Performances


    Record Features Solo Dylan, Solo The Band, and Plenty of Collaboration


    Dylan's Radical Rearrangements of Classics Give Songs Renewed Meaning and Relevance


    The live reunion of Bob Dylan and The Band during 1973-74 yielded one of the decade's most celebrated, dynamic, and astonishing tours. Captured on Before the Flood, the results portray the two artists' shared chemistry as well as Dylan's instinctive ability to challenge audiences, his group, and himself via inventive rearrangements of classics that simultaneously ward off nostalgia and renew with meaning. Said by noted critic Robert Christgau to be at its best, [the] craziest and strongest rock and roll ever recorded, Before the Flood crackles with intensity, relevance, and unhinged performances.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this restored analog version cracks wide open the ceiling previously obscuring many of the tonal details, revealing microdynamics, and vocal nuances on the recording. Distinguished with an immediately recognizable sound, The Band comes across in three-dimensional form, while Dylan takes center stage, feet from your listening chair. The two artists play like two souls in communion, a facet displayed here courtesy of the increased airiness, enhanced soundstage depth, and lifelike imaging.


    There's so much new information here, this already-iconic album only gains in stature. As experienced on Mobile Fidelity, Before the Flood unquestionably takes its place as one of the ten-best concert releases ever made. Notes are rounded, Garth Hudson's organ claims a tube-like glow, Levon Helm's drumming possesses its own space, voices are perceptible all the way down the singers' throats, and Dylan's awe-inspiring phrasing resonates with palpable urgency. Audiophiles and Dylan fans, prepare to be astonished.


    Arriving at a crucial time for both Dylan and The Band, Before the Flood is the furthest thing possible from a nostalgia trip. It's where Dylan begins his now-trademark feat of turning songs upside-down, taking risks, surprising and challenging expectations, leaving audiences riveted to the edge of their seats in anticipation of what might come next. He sings with unabated passion, the moods spanning bitterness to jubilation, his willingness to play fast and loose with the music giving way to compelling shifts, under-the-surface textures, complementary intricacies, and a sense of newness and discovery on par with that of an adventurer embracing total freedom.


    Before the Flood buries any notion of limits, safeguards, or borders. It is an open map, each song a route begging for exploration without need or concern for exactness or an appointed leader. Collaborative in every sense, it's a portrait of six inimitable musicians feeding off one another, trusting in their past history as they hurdle towards uncharted territory, using soulfulness as a compass and opportunity as their vehicle.


    Wholly different than the live episodes heard on Bob Dylan Live 1966, The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert, Before the Flood is equally seminal and, from the perspective of witnessing an artist dare not only his audience but himself to break through to a new plane, even better. Utterly astounding.

    Every Color Of Darkness

    It has been four years since Guillermo S. Herren released
    anything significant from his most famous and respected
    moniker, Prefuse 73 (though he did keep busy with live
    shows, collaborations, and remixes). That's a long time for
    virtually any artist, but it's an eternity for Herren, whose first
    three Prefuse 73 albums dropped in the span of four years.
    As if to make up for lost time, 2015 will see the release of
    not one, but three major works from Prefuse 73. After
    several albums that saw Herren progressively drift away
    from the beatmaking prowess that made him synonymous
    with emotionally resonant, damaged hip-hop, he's found
    himself reinvigorated - thanks in large part to an emotionally
    draining, creatively cashed few years. As Herren puts it, I've
    come back to hyper focusing - immersing myself in the
    sounds, rhythms, and formations that created Prefuse 73 in
    the first place. Recently, I've found a new life in the whole
    process of refining what I've created over the years as
    "Prefuse". Right now I'm at my most confident and
    comfortable since 05/06.


    It shows. The conclusion of a triptych of new recordings,
    Every Color of Darkness basks in the darkest corners of
    Prefuse 73's world, finding an eerie romanticism in manic
    beats and damaged jazz. It's a record that showcases his
    uncanny ability to excavate and exploit a source of light
    buried in pitch black.


    For an artist who has played an undeniably integral role in
    the careers of so many influential artists - from MF Doom
    to Battles to Flying Lotus - it's not just refreshing to hear
    him return to top form...it's revelatory.

    Destroyer: Resurrected

    Ranked 496/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    This album has received recognition many years later.

    In 1989, Kerrang! magazine listed the album at #36 among the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time.

    In 2006, it was placed at #60 on Guitar World magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time.

    The album was also featured in 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.


    This is KISS's 1976 multi-platinum, landmark album Destroyer: Resurrected, newly remixed from the original master tapes by the album's original producer, Bob Ezrin. Ezrin pulled the tapes from the vaults and painstakingly remixed the entire album, enhancing the sound and bringing out its rich texture and vibrancy, while keeping the integrity of the original recording intact. Destroyer: Resurrected will also include rare and unreleased recordings rediscovered during the remixing process, plus the originally intended cover artwork.


    Hot on the heels of their breakthrough hit album Alive!, KISS released their fourth studio album Destroyer which is considered the most ambitious studio recording of KISS's '70s catalog. Bob Ezrin, who had previously worked with Alice Cooper, was brought in to produce the album and among the production flourishes Ezrin introduced to KISS were sound effects, strings, a children's choir, reversed drumming and the eerie, echoing sounds of screaming children over Gene Simmons' vocals on "God of Thunder." Upon its release, Destroyer reached the No. 11 position on the Billboard Top 200 and, with the help of the surprise top-10 hit "Beth," was their first album to go platinum.


    Originally released as the B-side to the single "Detroit Rock City," "Beth,"-the heart-yearning ballad co-written and performed by drummer Peter Criss-was quickly picked up by radio nationwide and became the first top 10 for KISS, climbing all the way to the No. 7 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. While going through the original tapes, a forgotten vocal piece that was originally edited out in the final mix of "Beth" was discovered and now, for the first time, the complete original vocal recording has been restored and is included in the final mix. Other rediscovered gems include a complete, alternate guitar solo for the track "Sweet Pain," now heard for the first time since it was originally recorded. The newly remixed "Sweet Pain" with the original guitar solo will be included as a bonus track. In addition to the treasures found buried in the hours of recordings, KISS classics such as "Detroit Rock City," "Shout It Out Loud," "Do You Love Me?" and "God of Thunder" were painstakingly remixed by Ezrin as he fleshed out the drums and guitars, bringing out the bottom end to the bass, making his mixes tight and tough.


    In addition, Destroyer: Resurrected will now be issued with the originally intended cover art thought too controversial for the time. Created by artist Ken Kelly, the "brown" cover depicts KISS dressed in their ALIVE! costumes and standing on rubble in front of a burning city in ruins. At the time, the record company thought it was too violent and settled for the tamer "blue" version known today. This release also marked the first time that a comic-book illustration of the band appeared on the cover, confirming that the band was transforming from hard rockers to superheroes.

    News Of The World (40th Anniversary Box Set)


    Pure Analogue Re-Cut Of The Original Vinyl LP, Direct From The Unmastered Analogue Master Mix Tapes


    Presented In A Facsimile Original Sleeve


    Three Posters And A 60-page Book Of Images


    Original Album On CD, Plus Two Further CDs Of Recently Unearthed Out-Takes And Rarities From The Band's Archives


    Brand New One-Hour DVD Documentary, Queen : The American Dream


    A special box set of Queen's landmark 1977 album News of the World is set for release, marking the 40th anniversary of the original release.


    Originally launched in October 1977, News of the World is one of Queen's biggest selling albums of all time. It opens with two of the band's most indestructible worldwide hits, the Brian May-penned We Will Rock You and Freddie Mercury's We Are The Champions, monumental stadium anthems which remain a staple of major sporting events all around the world to this day. With songs written by all four band members, NOTW, Queen's sixth album, set a new standard in stylistic diversity, from Roger Taylor's proto-punk blast of Sheer Heart Attack to the salacious funk-rock groove workout Get Down Make Love, to the fragrant tropical calypso-pop Who Needs You. News of the World also features the hit Spread Your Wings, the epic rock saga It's Late and Freddie's wistfully romantic My Melancholy Blues.


    The new package includes the original album on CD, plus two further CDs of recently unearthed out-takes and rarities from the band's archives, one of which is a newly created 'alternative' version of the whole album - Raw Sessions.


    For many Queen devotees, this Raw Sessions CD will be the most intriguing component of the new release. Mined deep from long-vaulted studio multi-track tapes, this extraordinary parallel album brings to light never-before-heard alternative versions of each of the album's 11 tracks. Every lead vocal is different, as are most of the lead guitar parts and a great many other instrumental details. Here we experience We Are The Champions anew, with many unfamiliar vocal and instrumental elements, and for the first time at its full-recorded length rather than the edited 1977 album cut. Here also is the chance to discover peak era Freddie Mercury vocals on a track that nobody outside Queen's inner circle has heard him sing before at all - Brian May's All Dead, All Dead. The original album version features May himself on vocals. Roger Taylor's Sheer Heart Attack can be heard with its original long-lost guitar intro and uncut ending. Taylor's other song, Fight From The Inside, is more remarkable in that we hear his demo vocal worked on in his home studio in preparation for the next sessions, 'homework' that all of the band members would regularly carry out. As a point of note, Taylor plays all instruments on these two recordings, except for some lead guitar. In this age of digital leaks and obsessive fan culture, there is already great excitement that these recordings are, in 2017, truly New to the World.


    The third CD in the package, Bonus Tracks, features a feast of previously released but hard-to-find versions of News of the World tracks recorded in concert, for radio shows, or in alternate mixes. Included is the band's entire five-song final live session recorded for BBC Radio in October 1977, seven live performances of NOTW songs, plus rare backing tracks and instrumentals of the Queen classics We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, Spread Your Wings, Get Down, Make Love and Fight From The Inside. Also on this third disc is the seldom-heard US radio edit of It's Late, making its belated CD debut, and the rowdy stomper Feelings Feelings, which was recorded during the original NOTW sessions but not included on the final album.


    Another outstanding feature of this weighty 40th anniversary box is another first - a pure analogue re-cut of the original vinyl LP, direct from the unmastered analogue master mix tapes. This exceptional album collector's piece is presented in a facsimile original sleeve. There is also a rich selection of NOTW related memorabilia including three posters and a 60-page book of images, mostly previously unseen.


    The package is completed with a brand new one-hour DVD documentary, Queen : The American Dream, created from backstage material filmed during Queen's 1977 USA News of the World tour. In November that year, Queen embarked on another headlining US tour. The highly respected British radio and TV presenter Bob Harris, complete with full film crew, followed their journey as part of a proposed documentary that has remained incomplete and unreleased - until now. The crew had unlimited access to the band on and off stage, in the recording studio and during rehearsals. This one-hour documentary includes superb live footage of Queen at the Houston Summit in December. We also see moments from the birth of We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions, songs that would both earn a place in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Queen : The American Dream is a fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into a young British band at a creative peak, defying the odds as they take the USA by storm.


    For casual fans and Queen connoisseurs alike, the new NOTW package, with its feast of extra material, is manna from Heaven - a bumper haul of buried treasure from a world-beating band in its prime.

    Blood!

    As far as stories of lost and found recorded material go, few tales can be told where all the pieces of the puzzle come together in fortunate ways, resulting in a brand new recording that surprised even the band themselves.


    Having formed in 1982, infamous Santa Cruz hardcore legends BL'AST! released their first album, The Power of Expression in 1985. This debut blew everyone away and went on to become one of the highly sought after, "must- have" hardcore albums of the '80s. BL'AST! was beyond intense, continually pushing the boundaries of hardcore with their advanced musicianship, unstoppable energetic delivery and explosive live performances. This overwhelming power caught the attention of SST records, who released the band's second album, It's In My Blood in 1987. Their third LP, Take The Manic Ride, was then released by the label in 1989. BL'AST!'s wide-eyed, ambitious approach and intense perseverance became an influence for many bands to come. Shortly after the release of Take The Manic Ride, the band broke up and their story was buried by time and dust .UNTIL NOW!


    Earlier this year BL'AST! guitarist Mike Neider contacted Southern Lord with news that he had found some mysterious old BL'AST! master tapes in a abandoned storage locker. Greg Anderson, a BL'AST! fanatic, wasted no time in sending the tapes to a studio to be baked. Needless to say, after 25 years gathering dust, the quality had deteriorated. Still, nobody could have anticipated what would follow. With the audio digitized, Southern Lord contacted fellow longtime BL'AST! fiend, Dave Grohl about mixing this recording, his response was an enthusiastic "FUCK YEAH!, LETS DO THIS"!


    Whilst inside Grohl's famous 606 Studios (and with the Neve console as featured in the recent Grohl produced documentary Sound City) an astonishing discovery was made; a completely unheard, unreleased BL'AST! recording session from the mid-'80s.


    The lineup of the band at the time of the recording included second guitarist William Duvall (from Neon Christ, and now the current vocalist for Alice In Chains) who had moved from his hometown of Atlanta out to Santa Cruz on a tip from mutual friends, Corrosion of Conformity, to join the band. Unfortunately, his tenure with BL'AST! was short-lived and no recordings from that lineup were ever released.


    From the thunderous bass intro of "Only Time Will Tell" to the apocalyptic warnings of "It's In My Blood," the album completely rips and rages from start to finish. All parties involved were completely amazed at how vibrant, unique and fresh this newly-discovered material sounded. All things considered, it is miraculous the record survived this long and that everyone who was involved in bringing this recording to life, could be. Everything fell into place, when it could have easily crumbled along the way. This record is a time capsule that is meant to be heard!


    There is no doubt in our minds that Blood will be a crucial purchase for any current hardcore fiend as well as punk/hardcore fans who loved the band back in the day. START THE MACHINE!

    Falling Faster Than You Can Run

    Well, it doesn't take long for Falling Faster Than You Can Run to reveal that Nathaniel Rateliff isn't in a very good place. His deep funk is revealed very quickly on the opening track 'Still Trying': "If you roll in it long enough/your shit won't even smell" sings Rateliff, in between crying out, unaccompanied, "I don't know/I don't know/a god damned thing".


    And that's the feeling that sticks throughout this, often very fine, new record from Denver, Colorado's Missouri-born Rateliff. On his second full-length album (dropping the & the Wheel from his name) loneliness is writ large: not the kind of loneliness from actually being along, but the kind that comes from being constantly surrounded by people yet unable to shake the feeling of complete isolation. Rateliff has toured with many, many acts over the past few years and most recently has spent time with Dr Dog and fellow Denver act (and friends) The Lumineers. Thankfully, Rateliff rarely sounds like his friends (you might say I'm not a fan) and instead writes and plays music with a lot of heart and soul. It's often his voice that's the star of the show thanks to the subtly-arranged instrumentation: part matured Kurt Wagner burr and part throat-ravaged bluesman ( a bit The Tallest Man on Earth) it's a voice you could listen to all day. But good voice is nothing without good songs, and Rateliff comes with plenty of ammunition on Falling Faster Than You Can Run.


    "Still Trying" is an arresting opener; while Rateliff's heart-wrenching roars are the highlight, the backing isn't too shabby either - acoustic guitar and bass drum battle for the spotlight on a ragged country song, and it sounds authentic, like Rateliff has lived what he's singing. And things get better quickly: "I Am" is mostly just Rateliff and his guitar, as broaches his isolation singing: "you'll never know what's buried there / less you dig around". The music swells as he sings the title over and over, following a similar pattern to the album opener. But before things get too familiar, Rateliff picks up the pace with a couple of full band numbers that could almost be considered jaunty, if we were to ignore the lyrics. "Don't Get Too Close" is fine enough and ticks over nicely like a quickstep, but "Laborman" is even better. Like Wilco at their poppiest, it flies off on crunchy and bright electric guitars which belies the lyrical content: "I got a feelin' / a sleepin' depression / that somebody's gonna get hurt", sings Rateliff, followed by "you got the harness/so where you gonna drag me now?" You can see a pattern developing here; Rateliff's stuck somewhere he doesn't want to be, lonely, but how does he get out of it? Take another look at that album cover too - a couple share a bed, an arm reaches out yet it doesn't touch the other person. It's basically a visual encapsulation of what's being sung about.


    The epic electric storm of "Forgetting Is Believing" leads a trio of great closing tracks, ending with the Lambchop-murmur of the title track. Rateliff's baritone is exposed and dusty as he sings "leave me alone/you can see me fall/faster than you can run", ending as he started the record - alone and isolated.


    Falling Faster Than You Can Run feels, through the dirt, the shit and the whisky, and despite the loneliness, like a hard-earned triumph for Nathaniel Rateliff.

    Vessel

    The first track of Vessels, "Fear the Followers", comes in with tight frantic riffing coupled by a stark immediate thrash part. The song, bordering on hardcore underneath, is screamed in two separate distinct voices; one being a screechier version of the lower growls. A strict delivery of sharp metalcore is prevalent. But then the middle dips into some Sabbath swings before further slowing with cymbals crashing and synths.


    Track two, "Buried in the City", however exploits the notion of the riff and just goes full throttle doom metal. The tidal journey is engrossing, barbaric! Without rehashing any hacked riff, Cokegoat comes in with snarling bit of doom metal. It carries significant weight as a tribute to classic sounds while approaching them differently. The layered vocal and galloping metal guitars spark the energy of the finish.


    "Dogs" contrasts that with a cosmic synth aura and a taut minimalist riff approach for a tense 3 minutes. Then the explosion of a sinister 1970's free-wheeling riff takes center stage. All of which are to be manipulated into an Unsane, Faith No More ("Malpractice, "Caffeine") ugly place. Eventually, among static shorelines, we get a dreamy recoil into a bluesy meandering.


    Cokegoat begs you to pinpoint them, not by album but by the minute.


    There are continuous bounces from Strife type hardcore intros (I swear) to scathing black metal nods. Usually bands that boast that spectrum of influence are raw and crusty and loose in the production. This is tight as sutures. Andy Nelson of Weekend Nachos engineered this and Carl Saff (Unsane, Red Fang, Earthless) mastered the final sound for this. Not surprising. Heavy is a key factor in Vessels.


    Vessels is one hell of a debut. This bitch has balls. But quickly flashes some groove. "The End of Your Life Pt 2" is controlled chaos. It also is one of two 2-part songs. Yeah. This is foresight, ambition, ardor and grit in this album. Here we have "three guitarists, three voices, synths, bass and drums," kept on a production leash that adds an urgency to the manic time changes. Which crush. The atmospheric layers are just touches. They add mood but never take center stage. This is about riffs, but Cokegoat know where to accent their talents as well.

    Stranger Things Vol. 2 (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack) (Out Of Stock)

    Housed In A Gatefold Sleeve


    STRANGER THINGS is the breakout Netflix original series set in 1983 Indiana where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the '80s supernatural classics that captivated a generation, STRANGER THINGS stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Matthew Modine, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton. The series is now streaming on Netflix globally.


    Formed in 2009, the prolific Austin, TX experimental synth quartet S U R V I V E have released two full-lengths and numerous EPs / singles since their inception, including recent contributions to the soundtrack for the acclaimed indie horror film The Guest. Additionally, two of the group's members recently scored the soundtrack for the first season of STRANGER THINGS, launched this summer on Netflix. S U R V I V E has appeared at esteemed festivals across the US including Moogfest, Levitation Fest, Fun Fun Fun, Beserktown, Day in The Desert, Decibel, etc. and have played alongside acts like Goblin, John Maus, Tame Impala, Lightning Bolt, This Will Destroy You, A Place To Bury Strangers, Max Cooper, and many others; Noisey even called their live show ''transcendental.''


    Now, S U R V I V E have completed self recording their second full length via their home studios, which will see a September 30 via Relapse. The synth quartet's sophomore full length and Relapse debut is a dark, sweeping exercise in analog synth mastery. The pulsating, 9-song instrumental release showcases immense diversity between tracks - RR7349's compositions range from grim tom-tom thunder to space-age epics, pairing tense plodding grooves with meditative ambience and driving, rhythmic beats. Inspired by IDM and horror scores alike, RR7349 is simultaneously ominous and hopeful; tense and relaxed; percussive and melodic. A unique addition to the Relapse discography, and unquestionably S U R V I V E's best work to date.


    The first season of STRANGER THINGS is available to stream now on Netflix.

    Teaser - 40th Anniversary Box Set (Out Of Stock)

    Tommy Bolin, the bright young US guitar God who created a whirlwind with his loud, stylish, free-form fusion performances before his untimely death at the age of 25 in 1976, left a masterpiece that has been previously buried. TEASER should've been the album which broke Bolin worldwide. Instead, as a member of Deep Purple when the album came out in 1975, Bolin never got the chance to promote the album and it became a cult classic.


    40 years after it was made, that is finally about to change. In May 2015, UDR Records will put out THE DEFINITIVE TEASER, a 3 album deluxe vinyl box-set supplemented with two live CDs and celebrating the 40th anniversary of this legendary release. Featuring long-lost outtakes and alternative mixes from the original TEASER studio sessions, plus two live CDs comprising performances from Ebbets Field, The Northern Lights, My Father's Place and Albany, THE DEFINITIVE TEASER is set to satiate the appetites of Bolin fans worldwide.
