    Only In Dreams

    On several levels, Dum Dum Girls second full length Only in Dreams is a great leap forward for a gifted songwriter and an equally gifted band. It's heavy, deeply personal stuff and surely unprecedented for this style of music. The first record was basically the first songs I'd ever written, says band-leader Dee Dee, and I was thinking nostalgically about being a teenager. This record, it was pretty much impossible not to write about very recent, very real things.

    Very real things indeed: Dee Dee wrote Hold Your Hand immediately after her mother (the pretty lady on the cover of both the Dum Dum Girls' self-titled 2009 debut EP and their 2010 debut album I Will Be) was diagnosed with what turned out to be a fatal illness, and it's one of several songs on Only in Dreams that unsparingly trace her mom's passing. Other songs spell out the emotional toll of separation from one's lover, something Dee Dee had to deal with while she and her husband (Brandon Welchez of the acclaimed noise-pop band Crocodiles) pursued their own tour schedules.

    Only in Dreams more than fulfills the promise of 2011s acclaimed and fast-selling He Gets Me High EP. It retains Dum Dum Girls' signature blend of the girl-gang eyeliner punk of the Shangri-Las, the trashy propulsion of the Cramps, and the moody atmospherics of Mazzy Star, but for the first time, all four Dum Dum Girls play and sing on the album. Now the harmonies have more depth, Jules plays her own distinctive guitar leads, and the Bambi (bass)/Sandy (drums) rhythm section powers the music like a vintage V-8 engine. Best of all, tons of time on the road, including two massively successful headlining tours, have molded Dum Dum Girls into a very formidable rock & roll band, giving the music an undeniable force.

    And now that power and glory is showcased by full-on studio production, while I Will Be was recorded at home and modestly spiffed up in a studio by legendary pop maestro Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Go-Go's), Only in Dreams was recorded at Josh Homme's Pink Duck Studios, and Gottehrer again produced, this time with Sune Rose Wagner from the Raveonettes.

    Only in Dreams represents a musical evolution for Dum Dum Girls and a personal one for Dee Dee, and that's no coincidence. I'm for real, she says. We all are. I'm really passionate about this, it's all I know. And maybe we've just grown up a bit, or grown out a bit. There's some weight to what we do, and a pure intent, and I think that comes across on this album.

    Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1: Nommos / Visiting (Awaiting Repress)

    Includes Detailed Artwork And Two Essays By Leon

    Craig Leon's seminal synthesizer albums Nommos and Visiting are finally re-editioned in
    definitive form as the Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1 for RVNG Intl.'s archival

    Issued respectively by John Fahey's Takoma record label in 1980 and Leon's Arbitor
    private press in 1982, Nommos and Visiting were the twin brainchildren of studio wizard
    Craig Leon. Leon's production was pivotal in realizing the debut recordings by Ramones,
    Blondie, Richard Hell and Suicide. While those albums broke ground in new worlds of sound,
    Leon's own debut album was arguably, if not literally, more alien.

    In 1973 , the Brooklyn Museum hosted a comprehensive collection of sculptures by the
    Dogon of the Republic of Mali, a tribe whose religion is based in reveries and recollections
    of a visit from an extraterrestrial species they named Nommos. Years after experiencing the
    exhibit, Leon remained fascinated by the idea of alien visitors sharing not just stories of their
    home-planet, but musical traditions as well. For the classically trained Leon, a puzzle was
    presented and a challenge in place: what would music sound like if handed down from an
    ancient alien species? And how best to imagine it?

    Upon meeting Fahey in the late 70s, Leon pitched the concept as an opportune time to
    employ the latest and greatest synthesizer technology available. An avant empathist and
    eternally free spirit, Fahey enthusiastically green-lighted the project for his Takoma imprint.
    After a secluded week in an Austin, Texas studio with his partner, wife and collaborator
    Cassell Webb, Leon returned with a collection of incorporeal melodies generated by the
    Oberheim OB-X, Roland JP-4 and Arp 2600 synthesizers propelled by primitive rhythms
    programmed on a prototype of Roger Linn's nascent drum-machine, the LM-1.

    Issued by Fahey with zero expectation of the same radio airplay Leon accomplished
    with his pop productions, Nommos now stands as an innovative example of cosmic-synth
    composition that wasn't made for its time or any other. For this edition, Leon has in fact
    re-animated Nommos by re-recording the exact audio signals as preserved in the album's
    original studio notes. Every patch, tape-delay speed and outboard setting was transcribed
    as first scored, materializing the best possible audio from an album whose masters were lost
    in major label merger milieu years ago.

    Additionally, the re-master of Visiting was supervised firsthand by Leon. As its title
    suggests, Visiting materialized in 1982 as a conceptual continuation of Nommos. The
    album is in equal measure more improvisatory and constructed than its predecessor. Both
    albums were intended to be listened to as a set in the first volume of Leon's Anthology of
    Interplanetary Folk Music (the title was an homage to Harry Smith's influential collection of
    folk music issued two decades prior). A creative evolutionist, Leon made subtle edits and
    compositional additions to both albums to enhance the connectivity and encourage infinite

    While reissues and bootlegs have appeared to relieve the demand for these records,
    this collection will stand as the first ever version authorized by Craig Leon himself. The
    vinyl edition will be housed in a 2xLP set that includes detailed artwork and two essays by
    Leon. The first tells the complete story of the stargazing Dogon people and their prescient
    understanding of cosmology. The second details Leon's adventure in creating the Anthology
    of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1, an epic story bookended on this side of history as one
    seamless synth classic.

    Leader Of The Pack (Out Of Stock)

    Few girl groups of the 1960s can lay claim to being as influential as The Shangri-Las. Eschewing the glitz'n'glamour of their Motown contemporaries, the group's melodramatic songs and tough girl image - often at odds with lead singer Mary's tremulous vocals - have resonated across the decades in the recordings of Blondie, Amy Winehouse and, latterly, Bat For Lashes. Comprising sisters Betty and Mary Weiss and twins Marge and Mary Ann Ganser,
    the group formed in high school in Queens, NYC in 1963 and made their Red Bird debut with producer 'Shadow' Morton's opus 'Remember (Walking In The Sand)'. Between 1964 and 1966 they charted 11 US Hot
    100 singles.

    Recorded to capitalise on their US No.1 death disc classic 'Leader Of The Pack' (penned by Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry), Side 1 of this mono 12-tracker brings The Shangs' distinctive sound and penchant for tear-stained heartbreak to the fore with tracks such as 'Easier To Cry' and 'What Is Love?', while Side 2 includes rough'n'ready live recordings of the Isley Brothers' 'Twist And Shout', the Phil Upchurch stomper 'You Can't Sit Down' and, harking back to their high school roots, The Chantels' 'Maybe'. The album's opener, 'Give Him A Great Big Kiss', was immediately spun off as a single, peaking at US No.18 in early 1965.

    In the wake of producer George Morton's death earlier this year this is a timely reissue by
    one of Pop's best loved girl groups and foremost exponents of teenage angst.
