    Pet Sounds (Stereo) (200 Gram 45 RPM)


    Ranked 2/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time!


    Stereo


    Lacquer Plating By Gary Salstrom


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearant Audio


    Stereo Mix Produced By Mark Linett Under The Supervision Of Brian Wilson


    The ultimate pressing of The Beach Boys' iconic album from Analogue Productions!
    Pet Sounds, the 11th studio album by The Beach Boys, is acclaimed by critics
    and musicians alike as one of the most influential works in the history of popular
    music. Brian Wilson wrote and composed almost all of the songs - mono
    mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California
    crew rose to fame, and now Analogue Productions brings them to you with THE
    definitive Pet Sounds reissue on 200-gram vinyl at 45 RPM pressed at Quality
    Record Pressings. You get to choose - either the mono or stereo album version,
    or both!


    The reception for our previously-issued 33 1/3 version drew praise from reviewer
    Michael Fremer of AnalogPlanet.com who wrote: "The instrumental separation
    and front-to-back layering is nothing short of astonishing compared to the pleasing
    mush offered up by other editions." Acclaimed mastering engineer Kevin
    Gray has been able to extract details heretofore uncaptured from the tape with
    Brian Wilson's original mono mix "and present it in a way that is pleasing and
    natural to the ear," wrote Lee Dempsey, for Endless Summer Quarterly.


    Our stereo version was mixed from an assembled digital multi-track master that
    synced the original 4-track master instrumental with the 4 or 8-track vocal overdub
    master. The stereo mix was mixed to 15 ips 1/4" analog tape with SR noise reduction.


    Even better, the 45 RPM versions of this historical musical masterpiece makes your
    cartridge a near-perfect tracker by way of reduction of inner-groove distortion, a
    clear sonic advantage. You get two 200-gram LPs in a beautiful tip-on gatefold
    jacket from Stoughton Printing.


    Pet Sounds is famous for its use of multiple layers of unorthodox instrumentation as
    well as other cutting edge audio techniques for its time. Conventional keyboards
    and guitars were combined with exotic touches of orchestrated strings, bicycle
    bells, buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, Theremin, Hawaiian-sounding string instruments,
    Coca-Cola cans, barking dogs, and more. This classic has some of the
    group's most stunning melodies - "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "God Only Knows," "Caroline
    No," and "Sloop John B" (the last of which wasn't originally intended to go on
    the album) are the well-known hits, but equally worthy are "You Still Believe in Me,"
    "Don't Talk," "I Know There's an Answer," and "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times."


    VH-1 named Pet Sounds as the No. 3 album in the Top 100 Albums in Rock 'n'
    Roll History, as judged in a poll of musicians, executives and journalists. It's been
    ranked No. 1 in several music magazines' lists of the greatest albums of all time,
    including NME, The Times and Mojo Magazine. It was ranked No. 2 in Rolling
    Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

    A true poet of the blues, Lightnin' Hopkins was a master of tall, tongue-in-cheek tales, often made up on the spot in the recording studio. The first song on this album, I'm Going to Build Me a Heaven of My Own, describes an encounter with a bearded man claiming to be Jesus Christ. Hopkins also puts his personal stamp on Willie Dixon's My Babe and Smokey Hogg's Too Many Drivers, among others.

    Digital to Analog audio conversion like you've never heard it before. The VDA•2 uses unique filters and a low jitter receiver to produce natural sound.


    Our new VDA•2 takes Digital to Analog audio conversion to a new level. Traditional DAC designs use brick-wall digital filters, usually followed by more analog filtering to reduce sampling noise, but cause signal degradation in the process. Another approach has been to use no filtering at all, but this adds noise to the analog signal. Both of these designs have their strengths and weaknesses, but neither tends to be a good trade-off. Our design uses only a mild "slow roll-off" digital filter and first order analog filter to tame the sampling noise. This architecture has reduced filtering artifacts compared to brick-wall types, and lower sampling noise than filterless types, resulting in a more "analog" sound.


    Digital input signals are accepted by Toslink optical or coaxial SPDIF, then fed to the CS8416 24 bit/192k low jitter input receiver, then to the Burr Brown PCM1794 balanced/current output DAC. Our unique output stage is a fully discrete/zero feedback design and uses only a single transistor per output to insure the purity of the audio signal. Circuit board is high quality 2 oz. copper with lead-free silver solder construction.


    Input selection and digital domain phase are selected by convenient front panel switches, and an LED indicates "LOCK" when a valid signal is being received.

    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Analog Tapes


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings!


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket


    In 1987, the Madonna of Folk returned to U.S. record shops with a vengeance, delivering here interpretations of songs by Dire Straits, Johnny Clegg, U2 and Peter Gabriel - performers, writes AllMusic, whose political consciousness had been formed by listening to old Joan Baez albums.


    We've taken a classic and kicked it up a notch. Several notches, in fact. This 200-gram stunner, pressed at Quality Record Pressings, was expertly remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Lacquer plating was by
    QRP's master technician Gary Salstrom, topped off by a heavy cardboard gatefold jacket from Stoughton Printing with vibrantly reproduced original artwork. How does it get any better?


    The title track from Recently is a stunning Joan Baez original, where she boldly answers ex-husband David Harris' downbeat memoir of the '60s, Dreams Die Hard, as well as other '80s revisionists.


    The track Asimbognagna was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording.

    It's Like This

    This lovely set of intimately arranged and meticulously recorded covers, originally issued in 2000, is precisely the kind of semi-obscure album in need of a quality all-analog reissueThe superbly natural sound produced by this record is what spending big bucks on an audio system is all about. Set the volume appropriately and Ms. Jones'll draw you into the studio for a personal song recitalThis is one to savor. Music = 9/11; Sound = 10/11 Michael Fremer, www.musicangle.com


    this effort from 2000 shows Jones conjuring such magic with the material that she deserves as much attention for reworking standards as do Carly Simon or Linda Ronstadt. Kicking off with Steely Dan's 'Show Biz Kids,' and with appearances by Joe Jackson and Ben Folds, among the highpoints is the Beatles' 'For No One' that ranks as among the finest Beatles cover ever. And considering that they number in the tens of thousands, that's about as high as praise gets. Recording = 5/5; Performances = 5/5 Album of the Month Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, April 2008


    The Rickie Lee Jones 45rpm is AWESOME UNREAL AMAZING!!! I have to get a backup copy. I'll play this one to death. Danny Kaey, Positive-Feedback Online


    Not since Billie Holiday has there been a vocalist who so completely transforms a song into her own. On It's Like This, eclectic folkie Rickie Lee Jones envelops standards, showtunes, '70s soul, and even slick jazz-rock, interpreting them with her familiar childlike, breathy shouts. In a very similar vein as 1991's Pop Pop, Jones pulls together a collection of diverse songs from throughout the 20th century and gives them a sparse, fragile spin, kind of like Diana Krall and Bjork sharing coffee at an all-night diner. Produced by Bruce Brody (who has also worked with Maria McKee and Bette Midler), this album is really a showcase for the dynamic vocalist - her voice pitching and yawing like a sloop far out at sea. Several notable artists scatter themselves unobtrusively throughout the album like Joe Jackson, Ben Folds, John Pizzarelli, and Taj Mahal; each lend a subtle bass line or harmony vocal, cautiously not stepping on any of Jones' delicate lines.

    A beautiful addition to the Davis canon. Recorded over the course of three days in April 1961, Someday My Prince Will Come showcases Miles' second great rhythm section, here at the absolute peak of their telepathic interplay. Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb were as tight a unit as any ever formed, grooving so successfully that they went on to leave Miles and form the Wynton Kelly trio. Someday My Prince Will Come also includes some positively blistering solos from guest John Coltrane in his final recording with Miles. And Hank Mobley offers up some beautiful bluesy solos.

    Pirates (Awaiting Repress)

    Rickie Lee Jones Pirates On Numbered Limited-Edition 180-gram LP From Mobile Fidelity. Singer-Songwriters gorgeous-sounding 1981 album finally remastered!


    Rickie Lee Jones' Pirates arrives like a cloudburst in the desert of Eighties formula pop music and recycled heavy-metal rock. So wrote Stephen Holden in Rolling Stone in his five-star review of the eclectic artists sophomore album, a set that continues to defy eras and styles. While less-well known than her 1979 self-titled debut, the ambitious 1981 record remains Jones definitive statementan effort steeped in biographical details, fictional circumstances, and classic literary elements.


    Narratively blending West Side Story and Romeo and Juliet while also exploring spirit worlds and her breakup with Tom Waits, Pirates is at its core an idiosyncratic fusion of possibilities. And does Jones deliver! Accompanied by an all-star lineup that includes trumpeter Randy Brecker, Steely Dan icon Donald Fagen, drumming colossus Steve Gadd, session pro Victor Feldman, and legendary jazz arranger Ralph Burns, the singer-songwriter achieves a musical nirvana that encompasses post-bop, coffeehouse folk, bohemian pop, romantic soul, Beat poetry, and Broadway showtunes.


    Harmonized vocals and jive talking bring the piano-based records rich characters to life, making it seem as if listeners are overhearing conversations between strangers. In more than one way, Pirates is a self-contained theatrical production in which Jones singing is the star attraction. Her moody whispers, cries, and coos are the voices of spurned lovers, alienated outcasts, and unlikely heroines. Albums with this kind of stylistic magnitude, close-up intimacy, and emotional intensity come around only once or so a decade.


    Mobile Fidelity is proud to have had the opportunity to remaster Pirates from the original analog master tapes and produce a version that captures every nuance of this great-sounding studio masterpiece. Co-produced by Russ Titelman and Lenny Waronker (whose long list of credits include Randy Newman, James Taylor, and Eric Clapton records), trust us when we say that this 180-gram LP is one of the finest-sounding pop records youll hear. Fans of Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, Carole King, and Sarah Vaughan should consider this requisite listening. MoFis mini-LP style packaging only adds to the allure.


    So dont hesitate: Be the Lucky Guy that Jones sings about on the record by securing your lowest-numbered copy of Mobile Fidelitys half-speed mastered LP of Pirates today!

    Julie Is Her Name Vol. 2


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Analog Tapes


    200-Gram Gatefold LP plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!


    She was the sultry film starlet-turned-torch singer-come-TV actress whose dusky alto captivated a generation. Julie London was discovered while running a department store elevator in Hollywood.


    Just three years earlier the bountiful 15 year old, born Julie Peck to her parents, a song-and-dance duo of the vaudeville era, was singing on her parents' radio show. When she started working in the movies in the 1940s, she changed her name to London. During the course of a celebrated career in acting and music, she made more than 30 albums.


    The sultry-voiced actress, who was once married to Dragnet producer-star Jack Webb, had a hit record with the 1950s single Cry Me a River. The single debuted in 1955, sold three million copies and remained in demand into the 1960s.


    Analogue Productions has brought back Julie Is Her Name Volume 2, making it an undeniable classic in every sense of the word. Remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio, and plated and pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, the result is a memory-stirring masterpiece.


    Julie Is Her Name - Volume Two, has all the sincerity and warmth of her professional album debut, the best-selling Julie Is Her Name, from Liberty. An untested singer with uncompromising musical faith, an unknown record company, sophisticated, tastefully presented standards presented simply backed by just a bass and guitar - Julie Is Her Name faced long odds of success. Yet it soared to become a best-selling hit. Julie London rose to the Top 10 of every list of female vocalists.


    And as to the cover, expect only top-notch reproduction for our Analogue Productions reissue. Originally a single LP jacket, we've upgraded to a gatefold incorporating more original photographs provided by Universal.


    London appeared in nearly two dozen motion pictures during the 1940s and '50s; she was best known to TV audiences as nurse Dixie McCall on the 1970s hospital drama Emergency! She was hired on Emergency! by Webb, her then-former spouse, to co-star with her second husband, jazz musician Bobby Troup. Troup, who composed the iconic musical hit Route 66 played a doctor on the show and it was he who helped sign Julie to the Liberty record label.


    Describing her smoky vocal style, London once said, It's only a thimbleful of a voice, and I have to use it close to a microphone. But it is a kind of over-smoked voice, and it automatically sounds intimate. A style inimitable, in our estimation.

    Since the early 1950s, Willie Dixon has been the studio kingpin of Chicago blues, having written, produced, and played bass on countless classics by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Otis Rush, Koko Taylor, and many others. Dixon has always managed to find time away from the studio to work as a performer, slapping his upright bass and singing his own tunes in a highly compelling, conversational baritone. He was working the coffeehouse circuit with pianist Memphis Slim when he cut this, his first album as a leader, in 1959. Besides his unique interpretations of "Nervous" and "Built for Comfort," it includes eight lesser-known compositions from Dixon's prolific pen. It is unlike all other albums by Dixon, as he and Slim are accompanied, not by the usual crew of Chicago blues players, but by a group of New York mainstream jazzmen, including tenor saxophonist Hal Ashby, guitarist Wally Richardson and drummer Gus Johnson.

    Laid Back


    Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound from the Original Tapes


    Plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings!


    Faithfully Reproduced Jacket Artwork; Tip-on Gatefold from Stoughton Printing


    Gregg Allman's 1973 solo debut also became his biggest hit, a No. 13 LP featuring his Top 20 classic Midnight Rider. Analogue Productions now brings forth a sparkling reissue of this classic disc, mastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound. And presented as a 200-gram sonic superstar plated and pressed at our own Quality Record Pressings!

    By the end of 1973, the Allman Brothers Band seemed to have it all nailed down, writes reviewer Rickey Wright. They'd proven their mettle with a fine synthesis of blues, jazz, folk, and country influences; expanded upon it with the definitive Fillmore East set; and moved forward after the separate losses of guitarist Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley. The group's myriad strengths, in fact, might've been the reason that one of their most obvious gifts - Gregg Allman's pained, growling voice - was sometimes overlooked.


    Laid Back, Greg Allman's first solo disc, seems in part an effort to gain a little more recognition. It worked, particularly given the strong radio response to its opening track, a loping remake of Midnight Rider. Likewise, much of the album's remainder finds Allman tweaking the band's blues (Queen of Hearts) and country sides (a cover of Jackson Browne's These Days); horns and gospelish backing vocals add to the personal, often mournful feel. Laid Back is an often convincing version of the man's music.

    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio


    This is perhaps the most exquisitely natural recording ever made. All in all, this Wilson record is a triumph of the analog recording art. - International Audio Review


    David Abel, violin. Julie Steinberg, piano. Perhaps the most transcendent of David Wilson's brilliant recordings, this remarkable album of solo violin accompanied by piano comes as close to putting the two performers in the listening room as any ever made, writes The Absolute Sound, of Sonatas for Violin & Piano.


    Recorded on Wilson's Ultramaster Recorder, built by John Curl, and using a spaced pair of Schoeps microphones driving vacuum tube electronics, the recording has a close perspective that heightens transparency and engagement as well as wonderfully capturing the beautiful tonality of Abel's Guarnerius violin and Steinberg's Hamburg Steinway without exaggerating their size.

    Blues In Orbit

    Remastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Analog Tapes


    Gatefold Old-school Tip-On On Jacket By Stoughton Printing


    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    It's tempting for Blues in Orbit to be overlooked when Duke Ellington's best albums are discussed, but truly it's an undisputed gem. There are 14 tracks, none of them is longer than 4:50 and it is all good stuff. There are some familiar favorites such as In a Mellotone and C Jam Blues as well as less often heard gems like Blues in Blueprint and Sweet and Pungent. It is also in stereo, and the arrangements are superb.


    The featured performers include Ellington stalwarts Johnnie Hodges, Ray Nance, Harry Carney and Jimmy Hamilton, as well as the less familiar Booty Wood and Matthew Gee. Johnnie, in particular is well showcased here, taking the lead not only in slow pieces like Brown Penny and Sentimental Lady, but also in the rousing, Smada.


    The full Analogue Productions reissue treatment is at work on this smashing LP - famed mastering engineer Bernie Grundman handled the remastering from the original analog tapes. The lacquers were plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs. Lastly we've stashed each super-silent 200-gram disc in a premium Stoughton Printing gatefold jacket.


    All of the takes were recorded during after midnight sessions recorded over two nights starting on December 2, 1959 in New York at Columbia Record's studio on East 30th Street. Each night Duke's late dinner arrived at 2 a.m. - a sizzling steak, a pot of coffee with lemons in it, portions of American cheese, and grapefruits. After dinner, and a breather for the band, the sessions finished around dawn in a swinging fashion.


    If you're just getting into jazz, this album is highly recommended as a great way to initiate your collection. The sound is incredible, with packaging to match. Another audiophile home run.

    Dr. John's Gumbo

    No. 404 On Rolling Stone's List Of 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time!


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original
    Analog Tapes!


    Deluxe Tip-On Jacket From Stoughton Printing!


    Dr. John's Gumbo is the fifth album by New Orleans singer and
    pianist Dr. John, a tribute to the music of his native city. The album
    is a collection of covers of New Orleans classics, played by
    a major figure in the city's music.


    Dr John's Gumbo was released in 1972 and is in many ways a
    tribute by Dr. John, aka the Night Tripper, to his hometown New
    Orleans. It features excellent interpretations of New Orleans traditionals
    ("Iko Iko", "Tipitina", "Junko Partner" and "Stack-O-Lee")
    and contemporary R&B written or played by the likes of Huey
    Piano Smith ("Blow Wind Blow" and "Huey Smith Medley") Earl
    King and Earl Gaines ("Big Chief", "Let The Good Times Roll" and
    "Lonely Lonely Nights").


    Dr. John delivers a strong set of infectious songs drenched in
    good vibes and spiced with a pinch of voodoo. His eccentric
    (stage) appearance adds unique color to his stature as master of
    the ivories and as an entertainer.


    This great album receives the full Analogue Productions reissue
    treatment here, starting with Kevin Gray's remaster from the original
    analog tapes. Then we back that up with 200-gram plating
    and pressing on super-silent vinyl by our own Quality Record
    Pressings. Finally it's all housed in a tip-on gatefold jacket from
    Stoughton Printing. Deluxe all the way; you'll be ecstatic with
    the results!

    Soul To Soul (200 Gram Vinyl)

    Expanded Double Trouble Lineup Created Vaughan's Most Diverse Album


    Mastered From The Original Analog Tapes By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound


    Cut At 45 Rpm, 200-Gram Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    The new remastering sounds amazing. Better than it ever did. I'm happy and pleasantly surprised.

    -Chris Whipper Layton


    The 45 RPM Analogue Productions reissue of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Soul To Soul is so good, as are its 45 RPM companions - Texas Flood and Couldn't Stand The Weather - that they truly represent what Gregg Geller, producer and A&R representative described as the best replication of the master tapes to date.


    We've already brought you the 33 1/3 RPM box set Texas Hurricane featuring the greatest Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute ever reissued - six of Vaughan's most classic album titles remastered for ultimate blues and guitar fanatics. We've now taken the extra step and done 45 RPM versions of these three standout LPs.


    We've used the original 30 inches-per-second, half-inch analog master tapes for all of these albums. Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed of course at our Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs.


    Stevie Ray Vaughan's myth making was already complete by the time that his third record in as many years was released in October 1985. But no one could have expected the artistic leaps and additional prowess the guitarist displays on Soul To Soul, a record on which Vaughan added a full-time keyboardist and saxophonist, and dug deep into his native state's musical well for soul, R&B and surf motifs. Vaughan wrote four of Soul to Soul's 10 tracks; two songs were released as singles. The album went to No. 34 on the Billboard 200 chart and the music video for Change It received regular rotation on MTV.


    There's not a link in this production chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy.

    Buddy Holly (200 Gram Vinyl)

    Pioneer Of Rock 'n' Roll In His Solo Album Debut!


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    All-Analog Mastering By Kevin Gray At Cohearant Audio


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    Rock 'n' roll legend Buddy Holly produced some of
    the most distinctive and influential music of his era.
    Three months after the release of The Chirping Crickets
    came this self-titled 1958 classic, Buddy's last album
    released prior to the plane crash in Iowa that struck
    him down in 1959 at age 22.


    What has Analogue Productions done to kick this classic
    album up a notch? For starters, our version features
    stellar remastering by Kevin Gray at Cohearent
    Audio. Followed by state-of-the-art plating and pressing
    on 200-gram heavyweight vinyl at Quality Record
    Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs.
    Stoughton Printing provides a sturdy old-style tip-on
    gatefold jacket with added photos to round out the
    package.


    Born on Sept. 7, 1936 in Lubbock, Texas, Buddy Holly
    was well-versed in several music styles and was a
    seasoned performer by age 16.


    When Buddy Holly & The Crickets broke through
    nationally in 1957, they were marketed by Decca Records
    as two different acts whose records were released
    on two different Decca subsidiaries - Brunswick
    for Crickets records, Coral for Holly records. But
    there was no real musical distinction between the two,
    except perhaps that the "Crickets" sides had more
    prominent backup vocals.


    This reissue marks the debut album credited to Buddy
    Holly. It features Holly's Top Ten single "Peggy Sue"
    plus several songs that have turned out to be standards:
    "I'm Gonna Love You Too," "Listen to Me," "Everyday,"
    "Words of Love," and "Rave On."

    Further Out


    Colored Vinyl


    Produced/Engineered/Mixed/Mastered Completely Analog By Matt Talbot (Hum)


    Further Out, the anticipated debut full length from the reclusive Indiana trio
    Cloakroom, can be defined best as an exploratory sonic mission. From the album's
    opener, "Paperweight," the crushing force of a wall of distorted bass and pounding
    drumming collapses to uncover the airy, reverb-soaked vocals of guitarist Doyle Martin,
    who's carrying a sullen burden that seems just as weighed down. From the headbanging
    heaviness of "Moon Funeral" to the ethereal moments of songs like "Starchild Skull"
    and Mesmer," Cloakroom's output is the end result of researching seemingly dissimilar
    elements like atmospheric post-rock, punishingly slow stoner metal, and cathartic emo
    and how their best qualities can work into a final, organic sound, masterfully navigated
    by the expert and completely analog production of Matt Talbot. Further Out boasts the
    timelessness of a classic record: it is expansive and exploratory while still reflective and
    referential to the astral tendencies of predecessors like Hum and Jesu.

    Dark Red

    Dark Red is the second full-length album from Shlohmo, aka 25 year-old Los Angeles native Henry Laufer. The album is an uncanny marriage of his ever-evolving, richly textured sound with shades of 90s IDM, R&B, cassette-tape Jungle, and, in an unexpected turn, sludge metal. "It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record," he says, "or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx." Shlohmo's music thus far exists in the poles between the subtle textured tracks of 2011's Bad Vibes and the booming sinister synths and hihats of his production work and remixes (split EP with Jeremih, Banks' "Brain", remixes for Drake + The Weeknd). Dark Red utilizes Shlohmo's existing palate but also mines the noises and imperfections inherent in analog production and naturally damaged sounds. Side-stepping current trends that lean towards pristine, computer-generated production, Dark Red explores natural distortion, fuzz and noise as compositional tools, intentionally distressing sounds to echo the feeling of the icy menace and emotional charge found on early black metal tapes. The result is a deeply personal listen, Shlohmo's boldest statement yet.
