Bashed OutThis Is The Kit is the much beloved musical project of Kate Stables, born in England and based in Paris. Bashed Out is her band's third album, the result of an extended period collaboration with the record's producer Aaron Dessner (Sharon Van Etten, Local Natives). Dessner--the co-founder of the Brassland label--is best known for his work in The National. Indeed, the backing band he gathered for Bashed Out combines the talents of This Is The Kit's touring members (Rozi Plain, Jesse Vernon, Jamie Whitby-Coles), alongside a number of session players drawn from the Brooklyn music scene: Bryce Dessner, Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The Gloaming), Matt Barrick (The Walkmen) and Ben Lanz (Beirut, The National) all made key instrumental contributions. This music is honest, human and humane-a folky-lovely slow-rumble. It's rock but of the hangover-friendly, stoner variety; it's folk but at a groovy speed. As notable as the music, however, is front woman Kate Stables, whose voice hearkens back to the classic singer-songwriter era--her distinctive, cutting vocals up front in the mix. It's a self-confidence gained since her previous album, 2011's Wriggle Out the Restless, which made her band a minor institution in the United Kingdom, especially on the radio which has embraced the group. This Is The Kit has received across the board support from BBC 6 DJs Lauren Laverne, Radcliffe & Maconie, Marc Riley, Cerys Matthews, and Mary Anne Hobbs--receiving further play from BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Jen & Ally, and Phil Taggart. Wonderful wonderful stuff, said DJ and Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, before arguing their last album should have made the Mercury Prize shortlist. The Line of Best Fit has already called This Is The Kit an essential fixture of British folk music for the past 10 years one of a handful of truly innovate songwriters working with the British folk template today. In America, however, the band is just building up to their breakout moment. Bruce Warren, program director at influential American AAA station WXPN has praised Stables' "warm and gorgeous voice" and we expect similar notices to come across on this new LP. From Kate's earliest year growing up in the UK town of Winchester, she learned that great art takes time. In some ways the place I grew up is defined by being a Roman Saxon medieval cathedral city, she explains. They started building the Winchester Cathedral a thousand years ago and they've been working on it ever since. It's an exciting moment to join This Is The Kit's continuing musical evolution into a synesthetic, shape-shifting entity-rooted in folk but encompassing elements of psychedelia, alternative rock, and electronic textures and sensibilities.1.

The Woods"Sleater-Kinney is America's best rock band" - Greil Marcus, Time (2001)
Sleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in
Olympia, Washington in 1994. The band's core lineup consists of Corin
Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and
Janet Weiss (drums). Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist,
left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie
rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest.
The Woods is the seventh and final studio album from Sleater-Kinney,
released on May 24, 2005 by Sub Pop. It was produced by Dave
Fridmann and recorded from November 2004 to December 2004 at
Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York.
The Woods reached #80 on the US Billboard Top 200 chart and #2
on the Independent Albums chart. The album appeared at number four
in The Village Voice's "Pazz & Jop" critics' poll for 2005.
"They bash Eighties nostalgia, tell a feminist fairy tale and even quiet
down for a couple sensitive love songs - needed breaks from music so
intense you wonder how they can contain its explosiveness." [100 Best
Albums of the 2000's] - Rolling Stone
"To survive these days, you have to be either suicidal or superficial.
Sleater-Kinney, meanwhile, get by simply sounding fucking supersonic."
[9.0/10] - Stephen Deusner, Pitchfork
The album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release.
This reissue coincides with Sub Pop's release of
remastered versions of Sleater-Kinney's six other albums, as well as a

The Art Of Self Defense180g double vinyl version from Southern Lord in Stoughton gatefold jacket with 20 page bound in 12" x 12" book and printed inner-sleeves.
Cult metal favorite High On Fire was founded by former Sleep guitarist Matt Pike in the summer of 1998. Berthed out of the need to simply play guitar again, Pike jammed with and settled on a line-up of powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and longtime guitarist compatriot George Rice, who made the switch to bass to round out the trio. They had scarcely been together for a few months before demoing three songs. That demo, featuring "Master of Fists" and instant classics "10,000 Years" and "Blood from Zion," became among the most sought-after tapes in the underground metal scene. High On Fire got straight to the point, bashing away with a neanderthal sense of purpse and creating hyptnotic, droning waves of powerful riffs and low-end thunder of the likes not heard before.
Throughout '99, High On Fire continued writing for their debut full-length. The band recorded their debut with Sleep engineer/producer Billy Anderson at Shark Bite Studios in Oakland, CA. The Art of Self Defense served up a rock hard, unorthodox form of modern metal cloaked in strange religious theology and the trio's style was unique, distinct, heavy as all fuck and absolutely crushing. The album immediately became a cult classic and not even the closure of the label that released the album (Man's Ruin) could stop the powerhouse that had been unleashed. Tee Pee records reissued the album in 2001 with 2 bonus tracks: "Steel Shoes" and a ripping cover of the Celtic Frost song "The Usurper."
Another meticulously packaged vinyl release from the masters of the craft. Without question one of the most supernal releases in the history of the label!1. Baghdad
