Performance And Cocktails2016 Reissue
Performance and Cocktails is the second studio album by Welsh rock band Stereophonics. It was released by V2 on 8 March 1999. The album was a surprise commercial success for the band.

Described as classic UK rock delivered with whiskey vocals, the band have been summarized as possessing a sound akin to the genres of alternative rock and British traditional rock.

Mini MansionsOn a break from Queens of the Stone Age, Michael Shuman melded heads and locked arms with longtime friends Tyler Parkford and Zach Dawes in a dusty room in the San Fernando Valley. Here, they began a collaborative sÉance out of which birthed Mini Mansions in January of 2009. Though their triangle is usually confined to piano, bass, and a cocktail drum kit, the LA-based trio generates a technicolor spectrum of sound drawn from the baroque, gothic, psychedelic, and cinematic realms. Their debut self-titled release, due out via Dangerbird Records/Rekords Rekords, curtseys to the past, bows to the present, and foreshadows a progressively more abstract future.1. Vignette #1

Live At The Grand Olympic AuditoriumImport
Zack de la Rocha, Tim Commerford, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk formed Rage Against The Machine in 1991 and released their highly successful self-titled debut album in 1992. Their fiercely polemical music against cultural imperialism and government oppression, mixed into a Molotov cocktail of punk, hip hop and thrash was a groundbreaking style.
Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium is a double LP and contains material of Rage Against The Machine's last two shows recorded in September 2000.
Hits such as Killing In The Name, Bulls On Parade, and Bullet In The Head are even more intense than on the studio albums and the two covers (MC5's Kick Out The Jams and EPMD's I'm Housin') complete this true collector's item that's fetching high prices on Ebay, Discogs etc.

UNIM-MOD-5149xThe Black And White Years
Strange FigurinesSince 2006 - when Scott Butler, Landon Thompson and John Aldridge formed The Black & White Years - their sifter has been shaking beyond the status quo. They've released two albums and one EP. Topped radio charts. Shifted directions. Nearly broken up. Added members. Won awards. And now, seven years post, what's left at the bottom of the sieve are the undeniably solid pieces of a band arriving at a capstone.
Strange Figurines is that stone. It is the unalloyed chunk that endured best and worst times, youthful decisions, egos, changes, collaborations and maturity, to become an album embodying not just style or substance. But a perfectly mixed cocktail of them both.
Strange Figurines was produced by Danny Reisch (What Made Milwaukee Famous, Dana Falconberry, Okkervil River, Shearwater and White Denim).1. Embraces

Technicolor Paradise: Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Exotic Delights (Awaiting Repress)It was a musical cocktail born in a marketing meeting: Two parts easy listening, one part jazz, a healthy dollop of conga drums, a sprinkling of bird calls, and a pinch of textless choir. Serve garnished with an alluring female on the album jacket for best results. Exotica! The soundtrack for a mythical air conditioned Eden, packaged for mid-century, tiki torch-wielding armchair safariers. Be it mosquito-bitten torch singers, landlocked surf quartets, fad-chasing jazz combos, mad genius band leaders, D-list actors, or a middle-aged loner programming bird calls into a Hammond, Exotica was always more concerned with what geography might sound like over who was conducting. Captured across three albums are 48 curious examples of the short-lived genre's reach, each summoning their own sonic visions of Shangri La, bringing their versions of the Pacific, Africa, and the Orient to the hinterlands of America. Technicolor Paradise is where one makes it, after all.LP 1

Terrestrial GriefIt's apparent from the get-go: Omotai is a band that know what they want to accomplish and how to knock it out. Following two US tours and supporting slots for The Sword, Yob, Dark Castle, Thrones, Big Business and countless others, Omotai release their follow-up LP Terrestrial Grief.
The songs are brief, frenetic explosions of sound, a deft blend of grindcore, sludge, progressive noise-rock, math metal and whatever else happens to be blowing the band's skirt up at the time, all of it reaching your ears sopping with distortion and twisted to superior volume. Melissa Lonchambon Ryan's omnipresent bass rumble lines up with Sam Waters' relentless guitar riffery like a taloned fist to a shredded glove, while Anthony Vallejo's incomparable percussive bloodlust feels more like machine-gun-equipped battalions bent on sheer attrition. All three members share vocal duties seamlessly, razored shrieks punctuated by Ryan's wispy alto, the lyrics an outlandish cocktail of drunken nihilism and avant-garde sci-fi. A tough band to pigeonhole, granted, but definitely one worth seeking out.

Fool's GoldTranslucent Gold Vinyl
My greatest hope is that it ends up becoming the soundtrack to some perfect romance, or at the very least a great cocktail party," says Jill Barber of her new album, 'Fool's Gold. Jill - aka "Canada's sweetheart" - is a two-time Juno Award nominee and Montreal Jazz Fest headliner whose last album hit #1 on the iTunes Jazz charts, and landed her a national segment with NPR. She has collaborated with Josh Ritter, Ron Sexsmith, and Kris Kristofferson has called her a "damn good songwriter." She also published a children's book, entitled 'Music is for Everyone,' this May. 'Fool's Gold' explores every nook of Jill's musical history: sultry torch songs, Hank Williams-inspired ballads, an homage to the golden era of the Brill Building, Motown and beyond. Lead single "Broken For Good" ventures into the early days of Motown with its strong backbeat, horns, a driving bass line and immediate pop appeal. She channels Patsy Cline on "The Careless One," a bittersweet Western, full of resignation and sorrow. As Jill puts it, "It hurts me to sing it, just a little. But that's how I know it is a keeper." The record was produced in Toronto by longtime collaborators and bandmates Les Cooper and Drew Jurecka.1. Broken For Good

Clean Your Clock
Colored 180 Gram Double Vinyl with Pop-Up Art
Motörhead, Kings of the Road for over förty years, are immortalized one more
time in Clean Your Clock, the superb live album recorded at The Zenith in
Munich, Germany during the Winter 2015 Bad Magic tour.
The indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume that Lemmy Kilmister,
Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee always succeeded in producing is captured
superbly by long-time producer Cameron Webb's mix, giving this landmark
Motörhead release the warmth, curve and punch which helped the band
achieve international acclaim during a career which saw the Grammy-winning
icons sell over 15 million albums and play to millions worldwide.
Clean Your Clock is also a fitting salute to the power of Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister,
who founded Motörhead back in 1975 and so sadly passed away on Dec 28th
2015. Recorded only weeks before, Lemmy snarls, roars and bangs that bass
with the magisterial air of a man who knows he's a leader.
Perhaps more than with any other Motörhead album, you need to TURN-THISUP

WARB-ROA-0117xThe Fever 333
Made An America (Pre-Order)Release Date: August 17, 2018*
Los Angeles-based trio, THE FEVER 333, is set to release their debut EP, MADE AN AMERICA, via Roadrunner Records.
Comprised of vocalist Jason Aalon Butler [ex-letlive.], drummer Aric Improta [Night Verses], and guitarist Stephen Harrison [ex-The Chariot], THE FEVER 333 are explicitly devoted to a revolutionary cause, delivering aggressive advocacy through a molotov cocktail of punk, hip-hop, and thrash.
MADE AN AMERICA exhibits THE FEVER 333's revolutionary activism, with lead track "Walking In My Shoes" serving as the banner for THE FEVER 333's focus on community, charity, and change.
"The movement is much greater than the music," says Butler. "The art is only a contingent piece. We want to make sure we're just as involved in the activism and actual activation. By no means do we expect other artists to take on this task. Most of the people who made big improvements were either assassinated or just called crazy. We make it ostensibly clear that everything we do is in an active effort for change. It's about bringing back that socio-political mindfulness. We're trying to write the soundtrack to the revolution that we know is about to happen."

Hail Mega BoysFirst Time On Vinyl
Available for the first time on vinyl as the band approaches the historic milestone of performing live on stage together for the thousandth time is the classic debut from J. Roddy Walston and the Business, the band many have come to hail as the Megaboys of Rock'n'Roll. This release has been re-mastered from the original source by the audio wizards at Lord Baltimore Recording Studio.
Born and raised near Chattanooga, TN, J. Roddy Walston is the only limb left on the once-proud family tree of the Roddy clan. It was in the Smoky Mountain hollers of Tennessee that he was raised on the Music of God and taught to play rock and roll by the hand of the Devil. As a child, his grandmother turned down the Grand Ole Opry to sing only for God and family, while his uncle chose to drink himself to death in the real honky-tonks rather than heed the calls of the Nashville hit-makers that constantly beckoned. After young Roddy watched both punctuate their refusals with the business end of a shotgun, he decided not to let the family die nameless. In as much an attempt to bring due credit to his kin as a desire to rebel against what they stood for, he moved from the shadows and secrets of the South into the spotlight and temptations of the North. Whether by divine appointment or a cocktail devised by the Devil, no one knows, but by the time he reached Baltimore, a vicious band of players had gathered around him. Together, they've been begging rock n' roll to respect its past and teaching old music new tricks. It's as though every time they strike a note goat piss is turning into gasoline...nothing less than a modern rock n' roll miracle.I'll Tell You What

How To Die In The NorthLost treasure needn't be found in the distant past; the 21st century hides many artists who disappeared into the great wide yonder. BC Camplight is one such example. The alter-ego of American songwriter Brian Christinzio released albums in 2005 and 2007, both gems of a certain psych-pop vintage, combining eloquent songwriting with a self-destructive bent. Christinzio certainly knew it - he's described himself as, "the guy who blew it."
But this sublime talent with the keening vocal and fearless approach to lyrical introspection has another chance. His new album 'How To Die In The North', recorded in his newly adopted home of Manchester, England, is a fantastically rich, stylistically diverse trip. From dramatic, layered pop to a haunted take on Sixties sunshine-pop, from blue-eyed soul to speedy surf-pop, from sparser piano balladry to psychedelic showstoppers and a grand finale that's part Nilsson and part Broadway showtune.
Originally from New Jersey, Christinzio started playing piano aged just four, inspired by his mum's Jerry Lee Lewis and Nilsson records and his Dad's classical collection. Depression and crippling hypochondria clashed with captaining the football team and a penchant for boxing. Post-school, he fell in with people, "willing to go through shit to be a musician," which saw him relocate to Philadelphia where he occasionally played live with Philly faves The War On Drugs and guested on Sharon Van Etten's album 'Epic'.
He's already done two sessions for long-term fan Marc Riley at BBC 6 Music, which featured Christinzio's band of Mancunians who he met at The Castle Hotel pub, a watering hole in the city centre particularly popular with musicians. Christinzio also heard John Grant's album on the jukebox there, which encouraged him to approach Bella Union. Grant's cocktail of depression and self-sabotage thwarted an outrageous talent, but he took his second chance. The same deserves to happen to Christinzio, a similarly outsize, sharp and funny personality with a non-conformist streak. Far from dying, BC Camplight has been reborn in the North!1.

Helen of TroyTo his chagrin, John Cale's record label released his unfinished demo tapes while he was busy producing Patti Smith's groundbreaking Horses. But to his surprise, the resulting album, Helen of Troy, is considered the most stylistically cohesive of the eclectic Island Trilogy, the trio of albums Cale recorded for Island Records during the course of 1974-75. Featuring Brian Eno's lithe synthesizer, Phil Collins' expert drumming, and Cale's manic streetwise songwriting, Helen of Troy delivers more sophistication than most final cuts, and cuts deeper in its roughness.
Back on domestic vinyl for the first time in decades, this RTI-pressed edition of Helen of Troy is cut at Mobile Fidelity by in-house engineer Krieg Wunderlich and features stunning sonics. Quiet surfaces, faithful artwork, and the opportunity to hear Cale's engaging fare unfold amidst wide soundstages and black backgrounds-not to mention the moody content within-make this Wax Cathedral LP a must for music aficionados.
From the celestial opening strains of My Maria, which sounds in places like a hymn, to the teeth-gnashing Sudden Death, Cale shows us heaven, hell, and the life in between. Employing a cocktail of wild experimentation, tonal versatility, and range of emotion, Cale's compositions whip from soaring serenades like I Keep a Close Watch to the unhinged, wild-eyed Leaving It Up to You (pulled from the original release due to its reference to the murder of Sharon Tate) to the soulful, surf-derived China Sea. Eno's synthesizer casts love spells and shadows while Chris Spedding's guitar drills bluesy, ragged holes through every composition. A tormented, sinister cover of the Modern Lovers' Pablo Picasso (Cale produced the Lovers' debut) shows what you get when you replace Jonathan Richman's dreamy smile with Cale's bared teeth.
Although we'll never know what the one-time Velvet Underground cohort had in mind for the finished product, with its labyrinthine arrangements, theatrical spontaneity, and primal rawness, Helen of Troy is a gem that's better unpolished.1. My Maria

Almost Holy: Original SoundtrackAfter the collapse of the Soviet Union, a number of Ukraine's youth wound up
homeless and addicted to a lethal cocktail of injected cold medicine and alcohol.
Steve Hoover's documentary Almost Holy follows a pastor named Gennadiy
Mokhnenko, who saves street kids, at times by forcible abduction, and brings
them to his Pilgrim Republic rehabilitation center.
The film's depiction of a
country in the grip of poverty, addiction, and warfare is made even more powerful
by its captivating electronic score by award-winning composer Atticus Ross,
his brother Leopold Ross, and Bobby Krlic (The Haxan Cloak).
"Occasionally a project comes along where one feels compelled to contribute,"
Atticus said of seeing the early footage that convinced him to work on the film.
"It's a different world over there - of course we have dire poverty in the U.S. - but
to see an army of drug-addicted children living in those conditions, children the
same age as my own, under ten years old but covered in track marks and sleeping
on sewers to stay warm, and someone is asking you to write a little music to help
the cause. It would be hard to find a reason not to."
His collaborators felt the same way, and the trio soon began work on the score
- the Ross brothers in the U.S. and Krlic in the U.K. The distance meant the composers
initially worked separately, but in the end, the soundtrack feels remarkably
The message and content of film kept the trio inspired, and once Krlic had
emigrated to the U.S., they met at Atticus' studio and continued to work on the
album as a free-standing piece. The film remained the anchor and the catalyst for
their creativity, but several of the tracks on the record don't appear in the picture
at all. Almost Holy is thus not simply a soundtrack album, but a soundtrack and
an album, one that both enriches its film and stands apart from it.1. One Block Further

Piano Man (Awaiting Repress)Billy Joels Piano Man established a legend via two elements that became a trademark of his career: simple, yet disarmingly effective lyrics that speak to universal truths and instilled feelings of pathos. With the classic title track, Joel captures the emotions and expectations all of usconsciously or notattach to our favorite musicians: Sing us a song you're the piano man/Sing us a song tonight/Well we're all in the mood for a melody/And you've got us feeling alright, he croons. Indeed, Joel has everyone feeling good on this breakout set.
Never before properly remastered, Mobile Fidelity secured the original master tapes to present this 1973 singer-songwriter masterwork in unparalleled fidelity. The cavity of Joels piano, tension of the strings, and reach of his voice are astounding on this numbered limited-edition LP pressing. The New York native finally seems as if hes playing in your room rather than down the hall.
After the commercial failure of his debut, and resulting legal disputes with his label, a determined Joel took up a six
month residency as a lounge singer in Los Angeles. The vocalist continued to pen songs, including his signature track, Piano Man, a fictional narrative motivated by the real-life stories and actions of the patrons he witnessed during his cocktail club residency. Joel also drew inspiration from a fellow peer with whom hed ultimately collaborate on a series of highly successful tours that continue to this day: Elton John. The Englishmans Tumbleweed Connection fueled a creative spurt in Joel, who extends the records Western imagery and bluesy themes.
Ignoring introspection in favor of rich character sketches, Joel utilizes his knack for melodic flair, filling out the songs with comprehensive arrangements and a swift sense of purpose. His talesThe Ballad of Billy the Kid, Captain Jack, Aint No Crimeare supported with phenomenal harmonies and thematic flavors that arrive courtesy of instrumental accents from first-rate players that include guitarist Larry Carlton, banjoist Fred Heilbrun, and drummer Ron Tutt. Joel supplies the requisite emotions, and Piano Man oozes with life.
Mobile Fidelitys 180g LP possesses a warmth that, until now, none of Joels records possess. Soundstaging, imaging, and immediacy are refined and mannered, and the enthusiasm and completeness of Joels craft come into supreme focus.
No fan of 70s rock or pop should be without this stellar pressing!

Very few modern bands are lucky enough to have such a unique, individual and inimitable style as well as blessed with such an incredible voice at the forefront, so it's very rare that a group representing traditional blues-rock can come along with all these characteristics and whip up such excitement in 2016.
BLUES PILLS contain all these elements to create extraordinary music that sounds original and new but respects those long-held rules of blues and rock and roll tradition. Although, it's the individual characteristics of the band that makes this music electrifying; the steady bass of Zack Anderson, thumping rhythm of AndrÉ Kvarnström, technical and yet improvisational guitar of Dorian Sorriaux and the sensational soaring vocals of frontwoman Elin Larsson that set this band apart.
The psychedelic sounds of the band may hail back to the prosperity of the 1960's and 1970's and it's true their distinctive sound may include a few ingredients of the past; a pinch of late 60's Americana, a sprinkling of blues, a heavy serving of rock 'n' roll, a big squeeze of soul but it's all shaken up into a brand-new cocktail of sound, and served into this heavenly new blend we call BLUES PILLS.
That's why it seems to be a sign of destiny that the stars aligned for this exceptional group to be born in 2011, only one year later the striking, soulful and organic sound of first single 'Black Smoke' was fascinating countless listeners - followed up by the EP "Bliss". When in 2014 the self-titled album was released, the whole genre was turned upside down and BLUES PILLS were charting across Europe and continually selling out larger venues. Now the fans are calling on BLUES PILLS to present their second album "Lady In Gold".
"'Lady Gold' is a character symbolizing death", explains singer Elin Larsson of the intriguing album title. "We wanted to get away from the typical stereotype of the Grim Reaper."
The mystical and dark references of the album title are echoed throughout a lot of the album - there's the ode to the female "Keeper Of The Soul" on spiritual sounding title track 'Lady In Gold' and talks of failed salvation from a deceitful messiah in the soul anthem 'Little Boy Preacher'. There's emotive blues ballads in 'I've Felt A Change' and 'Burned Out' and empowering post-heartbreak tales in 'Won't Go Back' and 'Rejection'.
Similarly to the self-titled debut "Lady In Gold" was produced in Sweden by producer Don Alsterberg and it captures everything that's made them one of the most talked about rock bands of the past few years.1. Lady In Gold
