    Bushcraft (Awaiting Repress)

    Baptists advocate a creed of destruction through a blistering, discordant hybrid of punk-fueled hardcore. Recorded at the infamous Godcity studios with Kurt Ballou, the eleven anthems embodied on Bushcraft rage with nearly a half hour of lyrical angst and a seething vocal delivery propelled by white-knuckled snare-blasts, d-beat thunder, dissonant riff urgency and an overall relentless by-the-throat approach.

    Bloodmines (Awaiting Repress)

    Vancouver's BAPTISTS recently completed work on their second full-length album, the follow-up to their 2013 debut Bushcraft. Entitled Bloodmines, the new album (like the debut) was recorded at Godcity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts with with Kurt Ballou.


    Like its predecessor, Bloodmines is a fast, exhilarating album of rage, oozing with genuine raw emotion and punk rock fury. Shards of feedback make way for fast powerful riffs and savage vocals, whilst explosive drumming pumps blood around the band's beating heart. On album tracks like Vistas, Calling and the title track, Bloodmines, the pace changes, revealing powerful, almost anthemic, jagged noise rock akin to influential San Diego post-hardcore band Drive Like Jehu and similar acts which go beyond the two minute mark. Discordant guitar melodies and abrasive vocal passages are elongated, still volatile but perhaps allowing for further contemplation of the band's underlying message.


    BAPTISTS continually find new ways to express their rage and with Bloodmines they have created a memorable and commanding album.

    Jackleg Devotional To The Heart

    Jackleg Devotional to the Heart is The Baptist Generals' sophomore album. The Denton, TX band, known for its haunting, claustrophobic take on drunken folk, needed ten full years to bare its hearts, after Chris Flemmons recorded the album's first attempt in 2005, and then trashed it because, according to him, it sounded like any other indie rock-type band. Jackleg Devotional to the Heart was Co-produced by Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, Cat Power, The Walkmen, Modest Mouse, The White Stripes) and the band's Jason Reimer, and it sounds like exactly no one else.

    Emergency Ward

    Import

    Remastered


    Emergency Ward! (1972) is Nina Simone's statement on the Vietnam War, and by dealing with matters more spiritual than political, this album aptly reflect the events of the day.


    The entire first side consists of a 18-minute medley of George Harrison's My Sweet Lord and a poem by David Nelson called Today Is a Killer, set to music by Simone. This is a very strong, gospel-like performance, sometimes resembling the Capitols' Cool Jerk with a call-and-response vocal arrangement - one of Simone's finest moments. It was performed together with the Bethany Baptist Church Junior Choir of South Jamaica, New York.


    Side two consists of the Lennie BleecherJeremy Wind song Poppies and George Harrison's Isn't It A Pity. Tracks 1 and 4 were recorded november 18, 1971 at Fort Dix, and tracks 2-3 were recorded at the RCA Studio in New York City.

    Ranie Burnette's Hill Country Blues

    Ranie Burnette was born on July 4th, 1913 in Pleasant Grove, MS, located in Panola County. While he was known to have played local dances and juke joints in the hill country of North Mississippi during the 1940's and 50's, competing with the likes of Fred McDowell, no known recordings of Ranie were made until the 70's and early 80's while he was living in Senatobia.


    During that time he recorded two sides for a regional 45 single and was later recorded by Leo Bruin, both in Senatobia and during a trip Ranie made to the Netherlands. Some of those recordings appear on the Swingmaster CD Going Down South, along with tracks by harmonica player Johnny Woods and R.L. Burnside, whom Ranie mentored and often played with.


    Burnette's music, like the aforementioned artists, is strongly rooted in the rhythmic tradition of the fife and drum bands from the region, which you'll hear on this 11-song collection, also recorded by Leo Bruin. Ranie Burnette died in Memphis, TN, on January 23, 2000 and is buried in the cemetery at Ebeneezer Missionary Baptist Church in Como, MS.

    Fellow Travelers

    Fellow Travelers wasn't supposed to be a full-length record, so I'm
    a little surprised to admit that it's my favorite Shearwater album so
    far. It was meant to be a small thing to release between Animal Joy
    and the next full-length. But it took on a life of its own. Re-imagining
    and renovating songs by the bands we've toured with was like leafing
    through a scrapbook, and brought back the highs and lows of a
    decade of touring.


    Touring is an expression of faith - in yourself, in your friends, in the
    hope that the world has a place for you. In that spirit, I invited all the
    bands we covered to play on Fellow Travelers, with the caveat that you
    couldn't play on your own song. Almost everyone rose to the bait: Chris
    from the Baptist Generals turned Clinic's "Tomorrow" into a stomping
    incantation, while Clinic infected the Generals' "Fucked Up Life" with
    drum machines, radio signals, and combo organ. I added recordings I
    made of birds and waves in the Falklands to David Thomas Broughton's
    "Ambiguity," and he sent us a tape he made of sparrows, bulbuls, and
    the clanking shovels of highway workers in Pyongyang, North Korea,
    which we spliced into our rock-anthem version of Xiu Xiu's "I Luv the
    Valley OH!!" And Jenn from Wye Oak, who, like us, had also toured with
    Lou B, added vocals to "Natural One."


    Leon Trotsky, who gave the words "fellow travelers" their political aura,
    once wrote that "a protest against reality, either conscious or unconscious,
    active or passive, optimistic or pessimistic, always forms part of a really
    creative piece of work." Listening back, I get a feeling of common effort,
    of common purpose, among all of our different musical paths; we've all
    tried to defy or transform reality in small ways with our music, and to
    prove it with our performing lives.

    The Legendary Father of Folk Blues


    Legendary Delta Bluesman's Columbia LP Now On 200-Gram Vinyl!


    One Of The Truly Great Audiophile Blues Recordings Of All Time!


    Lacquers Cut By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Master Tape


    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!


    Heavyweight Glossy Tip-On Jacket By Stoughton Printing


    Mississippi's Son House was already legendary for a small collection of live field recordings made by folklorist Alan Lomax in 1941 and 1942, and for having taught some important licks to both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters before he was rediscovered by a new generation of college-age fans in 1964.


    The Father of the Delta Blues recorded this namesake LP for Columbia Records a year later in 1965. It's become, in the words of Living Blues magazine - Essential recordings by one of the greatest bluesmen ever. And now, Analogue Productions presents a reissue unmatched in sonic quality and luxury presentation. For our version we turned to Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound to remaster the recording from the original master tapes. The freshly cut lacquers were then plated and pressed on 200-gram vinyl by our own Quality Record Pressings.


    Son was born Eddie James House, Jr., on March 21, 1902, in Riverton, Miss. By the age of 15, he was preaching the gospel in various Baptist churches as the family seemingly wandered from one plantation to the next. He didn't even bother picking up a guitar until he turned 25; to quote House, I didn't like no guitar when I first heard it; oh gee, I couldn't stand a guy playin' a guitar. I didn't like none of it. But if his ambivalence to the instrument was obvious, even more obvious was the simple fact that Son hated plantation labor even more and had developed a taste for corn whiskey. After drunkenly launching into a blues at a house frolic in Lyon, Miss., one night and picking up some coin for doing it, the die seemed to be cast; Son House may have been a preacher, but he was part of the blues world now.


    Now, sit back and enjoy one of the genre's greatest, on a reissue that's the best that's been made to date. So authentic, so real - that's the Analogue Productions difference.

    The Lucid Collective (Awaiting Repress)

    Canada's ARCHSPIRE unleash an insane attack of blistering technical death metal on 'The Lucid Collective'. Guitars shred with fury, and vicious vocals swarm over whirlwind drum work in the band's potent display of 21st century extremity. More than just a collection of chops and blast beasts, the album's eight tracks showcase a fast-rising band with supreme mastery of dynamics going hand in hand with their aggression. 'The Lucid Collective' is a definitive statement of intent by one of death metal's most exciting new bands.


    'The Lucid Collective' was recorded at Rain City Recorders, in Vancouver, B.C. and was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Stuart McKillop (BAPTISTS, BISON B.C.) with additional engineering by Curtis Buckoll and Mark Mckitrick.

    The Blind Hole (Awaiting Repress)

    Atlanta's ultimate killing machine DEAD IN THE DIRT releases The Blind Hole, the faction's debut full-length recording, via Southern Lord.


    As witnessed on the trio's previous works, 2010's Vold EP and first release for Southern Lord, 2011's Fear 7", as well through their vicious on-stage presence, DEAD IN THE DIRT crushes everything in their path with a vehement and volatile crust/hardcore attack. Inspired by the scriptures of His Hero Is Gone, Left For Dead, Infest and DropDead, the faction creates some of the most morose and tonally oppressive music conceivable, all fueled with enraged socio-political lyrical content and straightedge/Vegan ethics.


    The Blind Hole surges with twenty-two tracks in less than twenty-four minutes, their downtuned, caustic riffs packed into the melee creating the most destructive blasting DEAD IN THE DIRT material yet. Though surging with crushing distortion, the album boasts incredibly clear production values, recorded at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) in Chicago, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, All Pigs Must Die, Baptists, Sleep). The cover was illustrated by Bo Orr as with the band's Fear EP.

    What One Becomes

    SUMAC is the trio of Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, Mamiffer) on guitar & vocals, Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists) on drums, and Brian Cook (Russian Circles, These Arms Are Snakes, Botch) on bass whose ability to deliver punishing music is matched only by the weight of their pedigree. Turner is the founder of the influential Hydra Head Records as well as the boundry pushing SIGE label and since his days in Isis has consistenetly challenged himself to push the boundries of heavy music. Cook's ability to delivery complex bass lines are matched by his bone shaking heavy tones. Yachyshyn's drumming abilities are much lauded, especially by Dave Grohl who often calls him out as his favorite drummer currently playing.


    Together on their new epic double album What One Becomes the trio walk the line between chaos and control. This sophomore album sees the band take a leap forward from their debut The Deal (2015) revealing a new side of Turner's combustible songwriting and guitar playing. Fans of the legendary Isis and cult heros Old Man Gloom will not be disappointed. There is a profound anxiety that leaches through What One Becomes. SUMAC's choreographed structures parallel the internal and personal struggles with anxiety. They seek to identify the source, devise a course of action, and confront that condition at hand. SUMAC channels psychic distress into their rigorously algebraic maneuvers and syllable-crack dissonance.

    The Secret History, Vol. 1

    The strangest thing about Pavement? Not that there were ever many non-strange things about Pavement? Even though they made their era's finest rock albums, the albums only told half their story. Pavement also made some of the Nineties' best albums that *never* happened. Until now.


    Pavement made five proper album-as-albums: Slanted and Enchanted (1992), Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (1994), Wowee Zowee (1995), Brighten The Corners (1997) and Terror Twilight (1999). Each has its own sound. Each has its own legend. But each of their official albums has a shadow album-and it's usually as strong as the album that actually *did* come out. It's time for the world to hear the albums Pavement could have made, if they'd been a little less ambitious about music and a little more ambitious about the music business. If they'd been the kind of band to sweat the legacy. But if they were that kind of band, would they have written so many great songs? Much less *these* great songs? No.


    Matador is finally releasing a series of these shadow albums. The first, naturally, is *The Secret History Vol. 1*, collecting the songs that got away during the era of Slanted and Enchanted, which Stephen Malkmus, Scott Kannberg and Gary Young recorded on the cheaper-than-cheap in January 1991. *Secret Slanted History* collects gems from Peel Sessions ("Kentucky Cocktail," "Circa 1762") and seven-inches ("Baptist Blacktick") as well as live slop from the first European tours, with Mark Ibold and Bob Nastanovich in the fold. Some are outtakes from *Slanted*-imagine leaving these tunes off your first album, when as far as you know or imagine, it's your *only* album. These tracks (some of which had never been rumored among Pavement freaks) came out on the 2002 *Slanted and Enchanted* reissue. But they've never been separately available as an album in their own right, and many of them have never been on vinyl before.


    The rarities collected here could have been-or maybe even should have been-cobbled together into a quickie stopgap album, a Slantedsequel.

    Live Evolution Lost (Out of Stock)

    Green, Blue, and Red Colored Vinyl Box Set


    Live Evolution Lost: The 13th Floor Elevators Live at the Houston Music Theatre is the first ever release of the complete performance of the band's legendary show from 18th February 1967.


    The trailblazing 13th Floor Elevators released the first "psychedelic" rock album in America, transforming culture throughout the 1960s and beyond. Formed in late 1965 in a small town in Texas by Electric Jug playing Tommy Hall, guitarist & vocalist Roky Erickson, guitarist Stacy Sutherland they were joined by bass player Benny Thurman, and drummer John Ike Walton; at a time where Baptist and Mormon preachers fought for the population's spiritual wellbeing, and Country & Western music filled the bars on a Saturday night. Out of these conflicting extremes, the Elevators were born and began making a name for themselves in the burgeoning music scene in Austin, Texas.


    Though Roky Erickson was the frontman, the group's sound and philosophy were created by the unpredictable & impulsive Tommy Hall. The Elevators followed their own spiritual cosmic route searching for a new path to enlightenment whilst all the while creating a reputation for excess. The band developed a sound that merged garage-punk and psychedelic experimentation. Their music, from the beginning, played and created under the influence of LSD, was raw, ambitious and hugely experimental with Sutherland's pioneering use of reverb and echo, and bluesy, acid-drenched guitar mixed with Tommy Hall's innovative electric jug 'psychedelic rock' was conceived.


    A three album edition, on green, blue and red heavyweight vinyl, which for the first time features the whole of the Elevators' historic gig on 18th February 1967 at the Houston Music Theatre. It catches the band with its classic line-up before the release of 'Easter Everywhere' and is the only known complete recording of an Elevators' gig, and the latest to survive. Mastered by Sonic Boom and put together by band expert Paul Drummond, it includes one reel unissued for over forty-five years.
