    Rapprocher


    Brooklynite Elizabeth Harper's first musical offerings appeared in the form of personal singer/songwriter fare, her airy vocals paired only with quiet strums of acoustic guitar. But having a long-held desire to make electronic music, Harper recruited producers Mark Richardson and Scott Rosenthal to assist in achieving her desired sound, and electro-pop outfit Class Actress was born. The trio wasted no time in assembling their Journal of Ardency EP, which Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor released on his Terrible Records imprint in early 2010. The five songs circulated widely, garnering acclaim and comparisons to Human League, Depeche Mode, and early Madonna at each music journal stop.


    Now settled in with the folks at Carpark, Harper and co. put forth their debut long-player, Rapprocher. The album sees her playing a similar part to Journal's playful lovelorn diva, but it pushes the EP's proto-electro revisionism into new directions. Tracks like Love Me Like You Used To and Hanging On swaddle the record's heavy disco beats in diaphanous sheets of delay, and the bouncing bass of Weekend make it a prime candidate for a feel-good summer hit. Harper remains the force that binds the songs into a cohesive statement, her winking coo darting about in the deep drums and lofty arpeggios, and her passion - backed mostly with electronics - summons thoughts of Yaz's Alison Moyet. In concurrence with the title (rapprocheris French for bring closer), the candid, sincere lyrics meld with the atmosphere, enveloping the listener into Class Actress's world of 21st century romanticism.

    The Cars (Awaiting Repress)

    Ranked 282/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Let the Good Times Roll: Half-Speed Mastered LP Sounds Amazing!


    The Cars Classic 1978 Debut a Veritable Greatest Hits Album: Nearly Every Song a Radio Staple


    My Best Friend's Girl, Just What I Needed, You're All I've Got Tonight Among the Tunes on the Hit Parade


    One of the most successful and enjoyable debuts in history, The Cars self-titled album doubles as a greatest-hits collection. Thats because not one song here is unrecognized or unknown. A huge reason why the Boston quintet became Americas most popular new-wave band, The Cars launched eight tracks still regularly heard on radio stations everywhere. Consider the hit list: Youre All Ive Got Tonight. Good Times Roll. Just What I Needed. Moving in Stereo. My Best Friends Girl. Dont Cha Stop. If youre a fan of pop music, this album is mandatory. Just call it the best new-wave rock album ever made.


    Led by Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr, the Cars managed to unite then-disparate styles: bubblegum pop melodies, angular art rock, progressive arrangements, and terse minimalism. Orrs low, understated singing and Ocaseks cool, detached vocals lend shades of doubt and double meaning to the lyrics, which are further counterbalanced by orchestral keyboard flourishes and electronic beats. The brilliant arrangements also benefit from a laidback cool and understated irony that remain uncommon in the over-the-top world of mainstream music. Obsessed with incorporating the latest technologies and sounds into its palette, the band spiced its tunes with delightfully quirky accentscountry-tinged guitar fills, echoing Syndrums, reggae splashes, hard-rock tones, robotic pulses.


    The results are the sounds of a creative landmark. At once accessible and eccentric, edgy and catchy, The Cars explodes with emotion, energy, and hooks. Its impossible not to get caught up humming and singing along to every song, an appeal that comes courtesy of Roy Thomas Bakers stellar production. The legendary producer, best known for his work with Queen, ensured that the record seamlessly packed a smooth midrange, spacious imaging, and call-and-answer choruses in one tight package. Bakers trademark touches with harmony vocals abound.


    And now, The Cars sounds better than it has in any previous incarnation. Half-speed mastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited-edition LP allows the musics oscillating rhythms, futuristic keyboard passages, panned stereo images, and rippling textures to be experienced like never before. The songs take on a surreal quality, the Cars manipulating the vibrant music at will to mesmerize the listeners senses and hold them at bay. Mobile Fidelitys unparalleled pressing epitomizes the sensation of moving in stereo!

    The Pleasure Principle

    The most popular of all the Gary Numan albums is undeniably 1979's The Pleasure Principle. The reasons are simple -- there is not a single weak moment on the disc, it contains his sole U.S. (number one worldwide) hit, "Cars." The Pleasure Principle is also one of the first Gary Numan albums to feature true ensemble playing, especially heard within the airtight, killer groove of "Metal" (one of Numan's all-time best tracks). Starting things off with the atmospheric instrumental "Airlane," the quality of the songs gets stronger and stronger as the album progresses -- "Films," "M.E.," "Observer," "Conversation," the aforementioned "Cars," and the U.K. Top Ten hit "Complex" all show Numan in top form. If you had to own just one Gary Numan album, The Pleasure Principle would be it.

    Shake It Up (Expanded)

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct The Cars in April, honoring the legendary band's incredible musical legacy and enormous commercial success. Rhino will kick off the celebration early with the expanded edition for Shake It Up.


    Each release features the original album - remastered in 2016 - expanded with rare and unreleased bonus tracks. Illustrated booklets accompany the music and contain liner notes written by renowned rock journalist David Fricke, who details the history of each album with new interviews by band member David Robinson.


    Ric Ocasek, Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes, Benjamin Orr and David Robinson recorded Shake It Up in 1981 at Syncro Sound, the group's new studio in Boston, with producer Roy Thomas Baker. Working in their own space afforded them the time to perfect the sound of the album, which became their third-straight Top 10 hit record and sold more than two million copies. It features the unforgettable singles "Since You're Gone," "Think It Over" and The Cars' first Top 10 hit single, "Shake It Up."


    Several unreleased tracks make their debut on SHAKE IT UP: EXPANDED EDITION, including an early version of "Since You're Gone," the demo for "Shake It Up" and an unreleased song called "Midnight Dancer."

    Clear Spot

    Clear Spot is the seventh album by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.


    After Trout Mask Replica, which was critically acclaimed but sold poorly, each of the group's following three albums was slightly more conventional than the one before. Beefheart wanted more commercial success - hence his decision to work with the widely respected team of producer Ted Templeman and engineer Donn Landee, who also created hits for artists such as the Doobie Brothers, Carly Simon and Van Morrison. Clear Spot gathers together much of the lyrical material that Beefheart had created or formulated at the beginning of The Spotlight Kid recordings. (via Wikipedia)

    Pacific Ocean Blue

    Import

    At first a somewhat un-noticed Wilson brother at the beginning of the Beach Boys' career, Dennis Wilson later matured into an excellent songwriter, producer, and vocalist. His heartfelt ballads and pop gems contributed heavily to the Beach Boys' late 60's and early 70's output.


    A 'target' of female enthusiasm, Dennis was assigned lead vocals for a few early novelty songs: Little Girl (You're My Miss America), Surfers Rule, and This Car of Mine. His first hit came in 1965 when Do You Wanna Dance opened the The Beach Boys Today! album and cracked the Top 20.


    After the high peaks and deep valleys of the Beach Boys career during the late '60s, Dennis began writing songs (Little Bird, Be Still) for 1968's 'Friends'. Throughout the early '70s, Beach Boys fans counted on at least two Dennis songs on each LP, often tender ballads. He made his first attempt at a solo album as early as 1970, but quietly released only one single. He started to work again in 1975, recording with friend and producer Gregg Jakobsen during 1976 to complete Pacific Ocean Blue.


    Though Dennis had started to work on his second album (provisionally titled 'Bamboo') even before the release of Pacific Ocean Blue, increasing problems caused several holdups.


    In late 1983 Wilson drowned while diving around his boat in Marina del Ray, CA. Pacific Ocean Blue is his only complete solo effort released to the public and we're pleased to offer it in audiophile quality!

    The 1978 smash LP features several of her biggest hit singles like her Everly Brothers tribute "Devoted To You" which features James Taylor, as well as one of the finest songs of the year "You Belong To Me" (co-written with Michael McDonald). Masterworks like "Boys In The Trees", "For Old Times Sake" and the powerful dance rock classic "Tranquillo (Melt My Heart)" surely made "Boys In The Trees" one of the most revered albums in Carly Simon's stellar career.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Carly Simon, that is why we are so very proud to announce another fine installment in the Carly Simon/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with her Grammy Award winning masterpiece "Boys In The Trees."


    As a timely LP release which coincides with her recent top charting autobiography "Boys In The Trees: A Memoir", the original Elektra Records classic is now mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Carly Simon, James Taylor, Hall & Oates). Also, for a very limited time, this first time audiophile release will be presented in its original gatefold cover, plus we'll be including the rare lyrics sleeve which hasn't been seen in years in the LP format.

    Candy-O

    How did the Cars move beyond their smash 1978 debut (also available on Mobile Fidelity 180-gram LP) and secure their status as one of musics leading bands for years to come? Look no further than the quadruple-platinum Candy-O. Continuing along the streamlined pop paths of its predecessor, the sophomore effort is preoccupied with desirable women that are as mysterious, sexy, and cool as the groups musicand the records pin-up cover.


    With rare exception, few new-wave artists enjoyed much of a career outside of a one-hit wonder. Candy-O proves the Cars were anything but. Its loaded with minimalist atmospherics, pulsing bass lines, catchy refrains, and labyrinthine synthesizers that stick in your mind for days. And while retaining a simplicity thats a Cars hallmark, the album also takes myriad stylistic detours: the glam-rock accents of Dangerous Type, a song whose title references the records mysterious and lusty matter; the percolating riffs of the contagious title track; the dizzying garage-rock nature of the upbeat Got a Lot on My Mind, complete with a tooting Farfisa organ. Nothing drags or feels out of place.


    Through it all, vocalists Benjamin Orr and Ric Ocasek keep their heads about themselves, singing in direct albeit detached tones that convey the tension, excitement, and risky promise inherent in the lyrics. Hook-laced choruses abound. Yet all is not what it seems.


    Hooks are mechanical by nature, but the affectlessness of these deserves special mention; only listeners who consider alienation is the craze a great insight will find much meaning here. On the other hand, only listeners who demand meaning in all things will find this useless. Cold and thin, shiny and hypnotic, it's what [the Cars] do best--rock and roll that is definitely pop without a hint of cuteness. Robert Christgau, The Consumer Guide


    Half-speed mastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited-edition LP brings the Cars distinctive melodies and exotic arrangements to the fore in ways that have never been heard outside of the recording studio. For the first time, Roy Thomas Bakers vocal production shines, with each members contributions rescued from a cold sonic murk that detracted from the musics impact on both vinyl and the extremely compressed CD. Once you hear the newly uncovered dynamics and rich textures, youll be wondering where they were all of these years. Chalk this up as an essential addition to your pop collection.

    Heartbeat City (Awaiting Repress)

    Four-Times-Platinum Heartbeat City Survives as the Cars' Final Great Album Before Break-Up


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity LP Presents the 1984 Mutt Lange-Produced Heartbeat City In Extraordinary Sound


    Loaded With Recognizable Hits: "Drive," "You Might Think," "Magic," "Hello Again," and "Why Can't I Have You" All Top 40 Singles


    1984 will always be remembered for the debut of the Macintosh computer, the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, and the ascent of MTV as the most powerful cultural medium of the era. The year is also recognized for the Cars' savvy contributions not only to the burgeoning music-video channel but to pop itself. Released in April, the four-times platinum Heartbeat City ultimately spawned five Top 40 singles-four of them landing in the Top 20, two in the Top 10-and serve as the final memorable record from the Boston group, which disbanded in 1987.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited edition 180g LP of Heartbeat City revisits the landmark album via a rich fidelity unmatched by any prior edition. Signifying the first time the set has been available on vinyl in nearly three decades, this reissue opens up the soundstages, decongests the low frequencies, and shines a spotlight on Mutt Lange's pinpoint balances and glossy hooks. Indeed, the now-household-name producer would make a lasting mark with Heartbeat City, whose radio-friendly sound, multi-layered textures, and smooth, suave, synth-heavy pulses set a precedent for the period's hit-making pop.


    Overflowing with a surfeit of finger-snapping beats, electro-pop effects, streamlined guitar notes, and bright melodies, Heartbeat City trades in efficiency, catchiness, and to-the-point craftiness. Unlike most mid-80s records, the electronic effects and sleek tonalities aren't dated due to both the focused production and irresistible songwriting. Leader Ric Ocasek penned all ten tunes, and while a mind-boggling five charted in the Top 40, what makes Heartbeat City such a staple is the fact that it's easy to imagine every song on it crashing the Billboard Hot 100. Call it the new-wave version of Thriller.


    Indeed, the record's track list automatically triggers a mental jukebox. The spare simplicity and hopefulness of "Magic." The simultaneously sad longing and soothing somberness of the Benjamin Orr-sung "Drive." The shimmer and shuffling riff of "You Might Think." The ping-pong bounce and futuristic paranoia of "Hello Again." The atmospheric, arty title track. Heartbeat City is a veritable lesson in pop tunesmithship.

    Lesser Unknown

    Baltimore and Wham City resident Adventure's 2008 self-titled debut was an energetic journey through the outer expanses of an SID chip, an experience that took listeners whizzing over pixelated mountains and explored the darker corners of the most modernized urban setting.


    This limited tonal range and lack of human vocals (save for a few dialogue samples from Bladerunner) may have made the music of Adventure seem a bit cold or impersonal, but on his newest release, Lesser Known, Benny Boeldt has brightened up his sound, adding soaring synth blasts and maximalist flourishes a la M83.


    The airy snare and pulsing bass that open the album act as fanfare, like Boeldt welcoming the listener into the spacious new environment of Lesser Known. His aesthetic remains grounded in the 1980s, but the songs sound more like retro-futuristic radio hits than the arcade conjuring modulations of his first release. On tracks like Fool's Paradise and Smoke and Mirrors, Boeldt splits the difference between New Order and Nu Shooz, creating a sound that could please even the most cynical bedroom moper while gratifying any party-goer who's simply looking to dance.


    Those fearing a record of wistful '80s pop facsimiles will be pleased to hear tunes like Relax the Mind and Lights Out connecting the dots that link Giorgio Moroder and his modern hit-making scion Dr. Luke. Dance beats permeate the bulk of Lesser Known, but the two closing songs introduce pensive atmospheres, perhaps laying the framework for Boeldt's future musical ventures.

    Surrealistic Pillow (Pre-Order)

    Ranked 146/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Surrealistic Pillow, as the name implies, is one soft ridden, slightly mad piece of psychedelic San Francisco folk-rock. From its percussive intro of She Has Funny Cars to the thumping mystique of Plastic Fantastic Lover, this album's one heaven of a trip!


    Jefferson Airplane truly hit the mark with this seminal album from 1967. Highlights that should not be overlooked are Somebody To Love, White Rabbit and Today.

    Man It Feels Like Space Again (Awaiting Repress)

    Australia's Pond was conceived by two members of Tame Impala's touring band. Their new album, Man It Feels Like Space Again lives up to the inherent wonder in its title, a sweeping collection of warm, warped psychedelic gems. It brings to mind the work of The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, mid-'70s Lennon, MGMT, Todd Rundgren, Supergrass and any number of other genre-hopping sonic/space-explorers.


    In its 45 minutes, the album covers an extraordinary amount of ground. Opener 'Waiting Around For Grace' sounds like an FM pop hit beamed in from a nearby planet, all wonky propulsion and giddy hooks - the perfect opening blast. Lead single, 'Elvis' Flaming Star' stomps like a '70s glam band coached by Bowie, before collapsing into and out of a mid-tune daydream.

    Real Hair

    On Speedy Ortiz's Real Hair, the band sets a course
    between the knotty discord of debut album Major Arcana
    and the pop bonades of the preceding Sports EP.
    Recorded and mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies
    Radiohead), the new EP nds them subtly adding new
    techniques to their songbook. Guitarists Sadie Dupuis and
    Matt Robidoux bring on additional guitar effects to color
    the roundabout feel of "Oxygal," while bassist Darl Ferm
    and drummer Mike Falcone hit hard to deliver the jump in-the-pit urgency of "American Horror".


    From the vocal melodies to the no-nonsense guitar turns,
    this is Speedy's catchiest outing yet, drawing inspiration
    from contemporary Top 40 and R&B radio in addition to
    their regular arsenal of guitar rock. Dupuis' lyrics continue
    to address concerns about identity, representation, and
    their misalignment, this time from a new angle: "While the
    last album was kind of a breakup jam, these songs are a
    lot more introspective-myself dealing with and talking to
    and making sense of myself," she says.


    With Real Hair, Speedy Ortiz once again taps into the
    four-part chemistry that brought their prior outings praise.
    They're still equal parts noisy and poetic, and now merge
    those channels more seamlessly than ever.
