    Charlie Is My Darling: Ireland 1965

    ABKCO Films presents a meticulously restored and full-realized version of this first-ever, legendary, but never released film. Shot during a quick tour of Ireland just weeks after (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction hit #1 on the charts, The Rolling Stones Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland is an intimate, behind-the-scenes diary of life on the road with the young Stones. It features the first professionally filmed concert performances of the band and documents the early frenzy of their fans and the riots the band's appearances inspired. The band is shown traveling through the Irish countryside by train; dashing from cabs to cramped, basement dressing rooms through screaming hordes of fans. Motel rooms host impromptu songwriting sessions and familiar classics are heard in their infancy as riff and lyric are united. Charlie Is My Darling is the invaluable frame that captures the spark about to combust into The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World!

    Love And War

    Though Daniel Merriweather may be best known in the U.S. as the remarkably soulful voice behind Stop Me (a standout track from DJ/producer Mark Ronsons eclectic album version that went to #1 on the UKs airplay chart), the 27-year-old Melbourne native firmly establishes himself as a solo artist in his own right on Love & War, which pulses with 60s soul keyboards and horns, warm textures of acoustic and electric guitar, and cinematic string arrangements, all anchored by Merriweathers combustible vocals. Love & War is also a showcase for Merriweathers considerable songwriting talents. He wrote nearly every song on the album with various musician friends, and then presented his compositions to Ronson (who produced the album) and his backing band, The Dap Kings (of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings), who also played on Amy Winehouses Back to Black and Ronsons Version.

    Devils Brigade

    Devils Brigade is an all-star punk group featuring Matt Freeman and Tim Armstrong of Rancid and DJ Bonebrake, drummer of X and the Knitters. Rancid fans have always cherished Matts deep punk growl on his featured songs on Rancid albums, and now Devils Brigade brings his singing, rockabilly-inspired bass slap, and classic punk songwriting to the fore. With Tim Armstrongs Duane Eddy lead guitar and the rock-steady rhythm of DJ Bonebrake, Devils Brigade offers up twelve songs that mix equal parts Johnny Cash, the Pogues, and Sun rockabilly, in a combustible cocktail that will have fans slamming on this falls tour with the Street Dogs. On tracks like Bridge of Gold with vocals by Armstrong, the band stretches out, adding mandolin and banjo to their sound, while Ride Harley Ride features some slinky vibraphone. Also features guest vocals from Rancids Lars Frederikson.

    The back liner photo gives the impression of a grungy Midwestern garage band, but no, that doesn't describe this sophisticated jazz-rock quartet, which was simultaneously breaking into mass-market acceptance and away from the contemplative ECM stereotype. The arrangements are more structured, the playing often more intense and searching, with a more pronounced rock influence.


    On the title track, Metheny digs in and displays some authoritative rock-oriented licks and intensity, and the rhythms on The Search have a slight, at times asymmetrical Latin feeling. The nearly 13-minute The Epic finds the Metheny group developing some real combustion in the improvised sections as Metheny, keyboardist Lyle Mays, bassist Mark Egan and drummer Danny Gottlieb grow tighter as a unit.

    Hang

    Foxygen is the Big Bang of two combusting minds. It's the splayed Galaxy of polar geniuses Sam France and Jonathan Rado. It's a handshake with a knife behind your back. A sleepless night in a five star hotel. You listen to Hang properly. You take in each moment. Each new melody that threads forward from the fingertips of one of this generation's finest piano men in Jonathan Rado. And you fall in line behind Sam France's sprawling and reckless lyric. Witness his mastery. Feel them struggle against the walls of their own creations. Follow them there. To the perimeter. To the exit sign. Notice that the two young guys aren't there anymore. They're outside looking for another joint to haunt. They're already out of sight.

    80/81

    Pat Metheny's credibility with the jazz community went way up with the release of this package, a superb two-LP collaboration with a quartet of outstanding jazz musicians that dared to be uncompromising at a time when most artists would have merely continued pursuing their electric commercial successes. From the disbanded Keith Jarrett American quartet came bassist Charlie Haden and tenor Dewey Redman - who alternates with and occasionally plays alongside tenor Michael Brecker - and Jack DeJohnette provides more combustible drumming than Metheny had ever experienced on record before. Yet Metheny's off-kilter wandering on solo electric guitar is a comfortable fit for the post-bop rhythmic crosscurrents of this music. Indeed, Haden and Metheny are in total sympathy, perhaps celebrating their mutual Missouri roots, and Metheny's difficult Pretty Scattered - which he mockingly described as Guitar Revenge! - nearly manages to stump even Redman and Brecker. The first of the Two Folk Songs is a great example of the Metheny folk-jazz fusion, with furious strummed guitar underpinning Brecker's melodic line and excursions on the outside and DeJohnette's spectacular drums. Another remarkable track is Open, a group improvisation that finds DeJohnette shaping the track's direction with a pushing solo and Metheny and the saxes emerging at the end. The two original LPs were organized so that the more distinctive Metheny fusions were on sides one and four and the overt jazz tracks occupied sides two and three.

    Gorelick (Awaiting Repress)

    Dead Kenny Gs have made their punk rock masterpiece. A 17-minute EP entitled Gorelick. Not one more second is needed as the DKGs slash and burn their way through six tracks, including originals like Beer, Daddy Issues and Punk Rock Girlfriend, plus a bruising rendition of their namesake The Dead Kennedys' Kill The Poor.


    The combustible punk-jazz trio featuring saxophonist Skerik, bassist Brad Houser and vocaslist/vibraphonist/drummer Mike Dillon have garnered a fanatical cult fan-base over years of incessant touring and critical praise, as well as through related projects like Garage A Trois, Critters Buggin and Mike Dillon's Go-Go Jungle. Gorelick will be released as a limited vinyl pressing with only 500 copies being issued.


    Dead Kenny Gs is a definitive statement of purpose: a resolute denunciation of all-things artificial. Skerik and his compatriots use their un-compromised art to draw an aesthetic line in the sand at the expense of crass commercialization that contaminates our art, our food, and what passes for our political discourse. It's fun, fearless, and, if you are the ass-shaking type, you can get down accordingly. - Popmatters

    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.

    Quarterbacks

    QUARTERBACKS started as a short-lived duo playing too-fast love songs backed by guitar and a single snare drum. Basement style, old smelly carpets, house shows for punk and patch kids. This was in New
    Paltz, a college town at the bottom of a mountain in upstate New York. Dean (Dean Engle, the band's songwriter/vocalist) worked at one of the town's two record shops, as K Records-obsessed small town boys
    usually do.


    The QUARTERBACKS line-up combusted after a handful of shows. The songs sat dormant until January 2012 when Dean enlisted Max Restaino and Tom Christie to revive the project. The new three-piece
    expanded the original vision, playing love-obsessed songs with limited affectation. The songs averaged under-2 minutes, and the DIY ethic remained firm. A few tape-only releases came into being (See the
    brilliant Double Double Whammy Records of Brooklyn NY).


    Two years of upstate basement shows further refined their efficient twee punk set, new songs slowly forming from familiar themes and chord patterns, progress through recursion. Down the street from the record
    shop where Dean worked was Team Love Records, a record label that had relocated from Sugar Street in NYC's East Village to Church Street in New Paltz. The folks at Team Love and Dean found themselves
    spending way too much time discussing favorite Cat's Miaow singles and post-Young Marble Giants projects.
    On February 10th, 2015, Team Love will release the first official longplayer by QUARTERBACKS. It's 19 songs played in 22 minutes. It's fast, broken-hearted and full of people, places and things. QUARTERBACKS was recorded at the Tin Roof Sessions Studio in New Paltz by Kyle Gilbride (Swearin,' Waxahatchee, Radiator Hospital) in less than 12 hours.

    Artificial Dance

    The story of electronic music pioneer K. Leimer continues with a focus on his auteurist studio project Savant. Compiling the standalone album, 1983's The Neo Realist (At Risk), with Savant's debut 12" and a grip of compilation and unreleased tracks, Artificial Dance documents Leimer's complete collaborative venture into the unpredictable realities of music, exploring the gulf between what is expected by its creators and what is eventually - and eternally - committed to tape. Savant was designed by Leimer to tap into entropic truths, asserting an uncaged counterpart to the loop-based minimalism he produced in isolation (recently surveyed on RVNG Intl.'s A Period of Review (1975-1983)). Aligning himself with the Cage-ean principles of chance operations and musical contingency, Savant was a band sans jam. Allegorically, a blindfolded collaboration whose happenstance source music Leimer would sample, loop and sculpt at will. Leimer was creatively autonomous to the point of being a persona absentia in Seattle's 80s rock scene. Unconcerned by social status, Leimer enlisted musicians from experimental and post-punk groups in the area to come record as Savant at his home studio, Tactical. Among them were ambient composer Marc Barreca, John Foster (founder of Op Magazine - the experimental music publication), Jim and David Keller of the New Flamingos, and their bandmate Alex Petit. Others, like Roy Finch and Dennis Rea, came from a similar orbit. Even with these musicians at his beck and call, Leimer implemented a disarming musical strategy. Savant would have no fixed line up and often musicians would be asked to play instruments far outside their fortÉ. Leimer would however give loose rhythmic direction for the musicians to develop spontaneously against click-tracks. When the performance locked in with Leimer listening at the controls, he'd capture it to tape. These moments became the soul of Savant and the combustive elements that would variegate its timbres. Savant tonally operates in a space between This Heat's dark primitivism and the found sound collage of Brian Eno & David Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. These analogies are simply stylistic, as the narrative behind The Neo-Realist's production makes clear Leimer was concocting via more alchemic means, avoiding genre aspirations by looking for accidental moments of musical intrigue and discovery. Leimer explains this process in the collection's liner notes: "I was looking for flaws, for faults to act as the stand-out features of the music." Far from a provisional stab at avant-garde sensibilities, Savant represents Leimer's repudiation of ambient music's passive side. Artificial Dance embodies a perfectionist's family portrait of outrÉ musicians conforming to Leimer's nonconformist musical ethos. Fitting for its name, Leimer created conditions for asocial brilliance with Savant, materializing an outward offering from an inward studio and a collaboration of audacious invention.

    Technically speaking, fire is not an object, but an event: the rapid oxidation of a material in the chemical process of combustion by which heat and light are released into the surrounding environment. What we typically think of as "fire"-the often mysteriously beautiful and strangely hypnotic fireplace flicker of white, yellow, or red-orange glow-is actually just the visible part of the fire's flame, containing the superheated byproducts of the fire's incomplete exothermic reaction giving off visible light as excess energy is released. Interestingly, the cherry-red flame of a smoldering campfire measures somewhere around 700 Celsius; the deep orange flame of a candle, lit at a bedside or suffusing a living room with gentle aroma, typically burns at around 1000 Celsius; and the dazzling white flame created by a meteor as it enters Earth's atmosphere can often exceed 1500 Celsius! While fire is commonly considered to be a destructive event, it can also be a very effective tool for managing and enhancing fields, forests, and wetlands: Native Americans discovered that while fire killed woody plants, it encouraged the growth of fruit-bearing shrubs and forage-producing grasslands. Of course, fire's unique potential has been known for some time: It's likely that humans began using fire to heat food approximately 1 million years ago.


    Among the classical elements, fire is commonly associated with energy, assertiveness, and passion. In Greek Mythology, the cult hero Prometheus defied the gods by providing humanity the gift of fire, thereby enabling progress and civilization. People born under the astrological signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are thought to have fire personalities: They are enthusiastic, extroverted, and, like our good friend Prometheus, they are rebellious, passionate, brave, and valiant. It's no wonder that we have for so long been drawn to fire. A thing to be feared, respected, and loved, fire is that which drives us into the unknown, lights our way through darkness, and signals our way back home.

Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. While less perfectly processed silver can have the same irritating tweeter-in-your-face sound as silver-plated strands, PSS Silver's smooth surface, extraordinarily careful processing, and high purity, deliver sound as smooth and beautiful as our PSC+ Copper, but with significantly higher resolution.


    DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #S 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): Creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This dramatically reduces dielectric induced smearing of the signal, letting sound emerge from a "black" background.


    CARBON-BASED 8-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION (NDS): Shields-the-shield, reducing RFI contamination of the equipment ground plane.


    FEP AIR-TUBES (FEP IS A FLUORO-POLYMER): Almost no contact between conductors and insulation reduces smearing and preserves dynamics.


    TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: Proper ground-reference conductor prevents using the shield as an inferior ground-reference conductor.


    DOUBLE-CONTACT COLD-WELDED REUSABLE PLUGS, HANGING-SILVER PLATING DIRECTLY OVER MACHINED SOLID EXTREME-PURITY RED COPPER.

    In Time

    With a Cuban-American lead singer, garage-band ferocity, an intense live show and a deep love of both romance and pure country to go with the polyrhythmic beats they were raised on, the Mavericks were unlikely superstars. And yet, they distilled country's essences, bulked them up with big, raucous sound, then broke ground for the format that saw people from all walks of life, many cultures and some surprising places lining up for hits like Here Comes The Rain, Crying Shame, Dance The Night Away and All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.


    Twenty years later, the little-band-that-could returns, more soulful and innovative than ever. For their first sessions in almost a decade, it was spontaneous combustion; literally, the band falling into step with the euphoria they were known for. And they built quite an album from there. It took life for us to get to this point - everybody was so free. From the first notes, it sounded like an explosion of sound; we went wehere the songs took us with a singularity of purpose. We came into make music as grown-ups, to make music as men, says lead singer Raul Malo.

    Dream Center

    Couple Skate Records are extremely excited to announce the signing of
    Los Angeles-based songwriter Michael Vidal. After years of blazing coasts
    and continents, DIY enclaves and contempo-art spaces alike as the singer
    / guitarist of LA punks Abe Vigoda, Michael Vidal has stepped out of the
    combustible, hyper-color tropical punk of his former group, and onto his own
    into more pastoral, lush territory. Dream Center is Vidal's inaugural work,
    originally released onto cassette in 2013 from LA label Big Joy, reissued onto
    all additional formats from Couple Skate Records.


    The music of Dream Center is a wonderful and diverse spectrum of looping,
    beautiful guitar pop (featured on "Dreams" and "Appraisal") that evokes the
    deeper emotional shades of the likes Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout, and crystalline
    instrumental pieces ("Mono No Aware") reminiscent of Durutti Column
    and the earlier days of Felt. All touchstones aside, the music of Vidal's Dream
    Center is an impressionist paean to love, loss, and existence, an exciting new
    beginning for a uniquely creative spirit.

    Me Moan

    Let's get a few facts straight right off the bat. The name is Daughn
    Gibson - rhymes with Jaughn, or Raughn. He was born in Nazareth, PA,
    and currently resides in the sleepy college town of Carlisle, PA, where
    he frequents local watering holes like The Cave and Alibis. He's 6'5,
    200 pounds, and has a head of thick, jet-black hair thicker. He played
    drums in Pearls & Brass. Daughn was a trucker, sure, but he's also
    packed boxes in an un-air conditioned warehouse, climbed up commercial
    broadcast towers with untested levels of radiation, worked at an adult
    bookstore, done sound at dive bars and collected unemployment checks.
    Daughn's been around.


    Daughn Gibson first entered the daydreams of the general public in
    2012 with his acclaimed debut, All Hell. Armed with modern technology
    and a pile of thrift-store records, Daughn shook the ghosts out of scratchy
    Christian folk records and baptized them as fierce Americana with his
    booming baritone voice. His songs are as frequently tender as they are
    prurient, as hopeful as they are brimming with despair. He treats the
    past with respectful reverence while still being able to appreciate esoteric
    modern-day electronic music from across the pond. The only real starting
    point for the music of Daughn Gibson is Daughn Gibson.
    It's on Daughn's second album and Sub Pop debut, Me Moan, that he
    truly reveals himself to the world. If All Hell was a gritty black-and-white
    movie, Me Moan is a widescreen IMAX 3D extravaganza. While the roots
    of All Hell's sample-based music remain, these songs are performed
    live, lushly detailed and richly orchestrated.


    Live drums, guitars (by John Baizley of Baroness and Jim Elkington of Brokeback), pedal steel, horns,
    house strings, bagpipes and organs appear on this record, but never
    does it feel over-stuffed - every instrument or melody is perfectly in place.
    Me Moan isn't just Daughn Gibson's primal scream, it's a skirmish
    through the full spectrum of emotion, unfiltered and impassioned.
    Like Cormac McCarthy or Robert Altman, Daughn Gibson is a uniquely
    American artist who throws his soul into his work, free of compromise,
    possessed by unique vision and so damn intense that he constantly
    teeters on spontaneous combustion. It's not out of line to consider Me
    Moan as his Blood Meridian; his Nashville. All that's left is for you to let
    Daughn in.

    Screaming For Vengeance (Awaiting Repress)

    Screaming for Vengeance on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Double-Platinum 1982 Blockbuster Remains Judas Priest's Most Commercially Successful LP


    Includes Electric Eye, Screaming for Vengeance, You've Got Another Thing Comin'


    Dual Magnesium-Burn Guitars, Leather-Tough Percussion, Molten-Hot Melodies Help Form Triangular Equilibrium of Speed, Accessibility, and Attitude


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    You've got another thing comin'! Distinguished by dual magnesium-burn guitars, leather-tough percussion, molten-hot melodies, and the unmistakable piercing falsetto of operatic vocalist, Screaming for Vengeance became the soundtrack to millions of music lovers' lives in the early 1980s as Judas Priest continued to lay waste to its contemporaries' softer, cheesier hard-rock styles. An effort on which precision-based speed, mainstream accessibility, and resilient attitude meet in triangular equilibrium, the 1982 set remains the British metal legends' top-selling record.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Series numbered limited edition LP shows off the grand intersection of daring adventure and commercial purpose achieved via ironclad production values and entrenched grooves. The latter particularly benefit from this analog pressing, as the group never overlooks the importance of rhythm and pace even when stoking tempos to engine-combusting levels. Leagues ahead of the sonics gracing its peers' albums from the time, the sense of balance, separation, and realism is on par with that of big-budget rock creations.


    Staked by the breakout "You've Got Another Thing Comin'," which burns white-hot with foot-pounding riffs, prize-fighting percussion, and singer Rob Halford's gun-for-hire blare, Screaming for Vengeance clutches hold of the jugular and doesn't let go. A return to the band's gritty, purist roots, the record revisits the themes of darkness, menace, and the unknown firmly established on the pioneering Stained Class and Killing Machine. Along with those albums, and British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance is the template for the catchy albeit uncompromisingly heavy crossover success Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax enjoyed years later.


    With the one-two opening tandem of the instrumental "The Hellion" and stomping "Electric Eye," overseen by Halford as if he's embodying the persona of a wicked James Bond villain, Priest sounds utterly futuristic and terrifying, the instruments seemingly on a swivel and the sawed-off tones flooding the guitar solos with intimidation. A classic head-out-to-the highway anthem ("Riding on the Wind"), a racing proto-thrash banger ("Screaming for Vengeance"), and a scorching exorcism ("Devil's Child") function as the metal-hued bolts that hold the foundations of this Top 20-charting benchmark in place.


    Perhaps more so here than on any other record, Priest spit-shines hooks and collusive six-string harmonic leads to perfection, giving listeners ying-yang doses of pain and pleasure, sweet and bitter. Songs at once invite sing-a-longs and fist-pumping responses. Screaming for Vengeance marked the last time Priest would sound this heavy in the 80s. No wonder it was voted the 12th best metal album of all time in Martin Popoff's definitive book of the same name.
