    Oh Mercy

    Released in 1989, Oh Mercy found Bob Dylan at the top of his game. Widely regarded as his best album in over a decade, Oh Mercy reaches back to Dylan's artfulness from his early years. Lyrically, the album boasts a healthy mix of social works, love songs and poetical subject matter. Especially the laidback and airy production by Daniel Lanois (whose CV mentions U2's Joshua Tree, Album Of The Year in 1988) makes Oh Mercy undoubtedly the pinnacle of Bob Dylan's eighties output!

    The Fool

    Warpaint, the all-girl quartet from Los Angeles, weave intricate guitar lines, hypnotic vocals and driving post punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling songs that skirt the line between psychedelia and intimacy. Both live and on record, Warpaint sound like theyre channelling something truly otherworldly, mystical. The Fool is their utterly mesmeric debut full-length album on Rough Trade Records and follows-up 2009s Exquisite Corpse EP.



    The Fool was produced and mixed by Tom Biller (Liars, Jon Brion, Sean Lennon) in Los Angeles, with further mixes from Andrew Weatherall (Bjork, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream) and Adam Samuels (John Frusciante, Daniel Lanois). Warpaint is Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Theresa Wayman (guitar/vocals), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals) and Stella Mozgawa (drums).



    One of the years most promising new acts, Warpaint construct mysterious songs that pair the rhythmic chug of Pylon with the otherworldly eeriness of Throwing Muses. - Rolling Stone

    For The Beauty Of Wynona

    Superproducer Daniel Lanois took a rare turn on center stage as a performer on his second solo release, For the Beauty of Wynona. Released in 1993, the album follows his earlier release, Acadie. Unlike that album, which had some superstar appearances, For the Beauty of Wynona is a more low-key affair and has a more subtle impact. Lanois has a limited range as a vocalist, but he possesses a warmth that draws in the listener. Producing himself, Lanois also is an accomplished guitarist, although his protÉgÉ, Malcolm Burn, also adds some guitar as well as keyboards. The music is often moody and watercolored, but there are some more upbeat moments like the jaunty melody of Sleeping in the Devil's Bed, which has a country feel, and the single Lotta Love to Give, which is wispy but anchored by twang guitar and has a catchy chorus and serrated guitar solo. For the Beauty of Wynona is not an immediately striking album but rather one that slowly grows on the listener. It also proves that Lanois has something to say on his own.

    Time Out Of Mind

    This is the 30th Bob Dylan album, released in 1997. Time Out of Mind is hailed as one of Dylan's best albums, and it went on to win three Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year in 1998.


    The album features a particularly atmospheric sound, the work of producer (and past Dylan collaborator) Daniel Lanois, whose innovative work with carefully placed microphones and strategic mixing. Sonically, the album is reminiscent of Oh Mercy, the last album Dylan recorded with producer Daniel Lanois, but Time Out of Mind has a grittier foundation - by and large, the songs are bitter and resigned, and Dylan gives them appropriately anguished performances.


    Original vinyl copies of Time Out Of Mind were made in small numbers, making this official reissue a much needed one!

    Drugs 'N Hymns

    Drugs 'n Hymns is the newest release from LA-based artist Rocco Deluca. The album finds the blues-steeped musician forging a solo path armed with his National guitar, distinctively emotive voice and 10 reflective, vivid song-stories. The hypnotically spare compositions conjure a world of characters seeking a certain solace and salvation while continually mired in the disturbed darkness. The album was anti-produced by Rocco DeLuca and features guests such as the Echo Park Jubilee Tambo Flower Unsung Heroes Choir. Drugs 'N Hymns is a fascinating recording in its quiet intensity, conveying a wide swathe of emotions from quietude mixed with underlying dread to hopeful exhilaration.


    Rocco DeLuca was born in Southern California surrounded by a vibrant arts community that inspired him to follow his muses at an early age. By seven he was learning to play listening to Billy Holiday, Nina Simone and the Delta Blues heroes of the 1920s. He soon crossed paths and performed with the likes of John Lee Hooker, Johnny Cash and June Carter and Daniel Lanois, an amazing musical association key in the evolution of DeLucas unique sound whether fronting a band or playing solo.


    Says Daniel Lanois: I fully believe in DeLuca. I think that hes got the power to be a contemporary troubadour, as I see it, and I hope I can be his friend for a long time, whether I am operating in the same limelight, ahead of him, behind him, in his shadow, whatever it takes, Ill be there. The one thing that I love about Rocco DeLuca is he is driven by his own heart.

    Flesh And Machine


    LP Contains CD Of Full Album


    Daniel Lanois is one of the most influential record producers
    of the modern era: the man who brought Bob Dylan back;
    longtime collaborator with Brian Eno, soundsculpting a series
    of mammoth releases for U2; and producer of breakthrough
    late-career albums by Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris. But
    before all that, Daniel Lanois was an experimental musician, recording his unique guitar voicings for groundbreaking albums
    with guys like Brian Eno and Jon Hassell, along the way helping
    to invent a genre called ambient music. What is lost in the
    wild success of his production career is Lanois' musical life at
    the edge, which is where Flesh and Machine, his new album
    on ANTI-, comes full circle.


    A wildly ambitious, diverse exploration of modern sonics, Flesh and Machine careens from the
    huge guitar skronk of "The End" to the haunted landscapes of
    "Iceland." But perhaps for the first time, Lanois' new album
    highlights the strange parallel evolution that has taken place in Daniel's music; alongside
    the developments in IDM that launched from the same 70s avante-intrumental roots as Eno
    and company, Lanois' music has developed a rhythmic complexity heard in the most adventurous music by Autechre or Matmos. Only for Lanois, nothing is digital. Dense, visceral
    music that combines the primitive stomach-pounding volume of rock with the heartbreaking
    found sonics of early electronic music, Flesh and Machine reminds us that we are bodies in a
    mechanized world, and that in the midst of our digital noise we must not forget to breathe.

    The Unforgettable Fire

    The Unforgettable Fire is U2's first album featuring the production team of Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. Moody gems such as A Sort of Homecoming and the entrancing Bad set the table for more explosive fare such as Pride, Wire, and the title track. This is the album that made U2 a career act, showing that their music could grow by leaps and bounds, even at the hand of another, without sacrificing its soul.

    Silver Bell

    Silver Bell, recorded in 2000 and intended to be the follow-up to Patty Griffin's hard-rocking 1998 sophomore release, Flaming Red was shelved by A&M
    Records, a victim of the label's turn-of-the-century ownership change. Now, newly mixed by legendary producer Glyn Johns, Silver Bell will get its release with the original songs that were recorded at Daniel Lanois' Kingsway Studio in New Orleans. Despite its 13 years of limbo, the sought-after album spawned two huge hits for the Dixie Chicks, who covered both "Top Of The World" and "Truth #2" for their six-million-selling 2002 Home album. In
    addition, the band's Natalie Maines recorded the album's title track for her recent solo debut, Mother.


    Big awareness among fans of this early career, never-before-released album. Emmylou Harris sings harmony on "Truth #2". Patty's 2010 album
    Downtown Church won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Gospel Album. Patty's songs have been covered by all types of artists; from Kelly Clarkson
    and Jessica Simpson to Bon Iver and Ben Harper, expanding her audience beyond the core indie/ Americana fan.

    Produced by Stuart Price, Daniel Lanois and Brendan O'Brien and featuring guest vocals by Jenny Lewis, Flamingo is a brilliant collection from an artist whose voice and songwriting prowess have left an indelible mark on the music world, most notably with his band the Killers. Inextricably tied to Las Vegas in both showmanship and ideology, Flamingo is packed full of sparkling, stadium-ready songs that run the gamut from expert pop executions and forlorn electro dirges to gospel tunes and even blues-tinged rock.

    Good Advice is the fizzing, phosphorescing new pop LP by songwriter Basia Bulat. Captured and produced by My Morning Jacket leader Jim James in Louisville, KY, it follows on 2013's Polaris- and Juno-nominated Tall Tall Shadow and two years of tour-dates alongside acts like Sufjan Stevens, Daniel Lanois and Destroyer. These are 10 songs of desire and redemption, lit up with a bottle-rocket of liberated, faintly psychedelic sound.

    Offshore

    Mentored by Daniel Lanois, Daniel Burton has been putting his project-oriented stamp on a variety of records the last ten years and it has all coalesced into this career-defining work. Offshore is one continuous piece, made up of six distinct songs. It's equally beautiful and noisy, composed though loose, akin to the late '80s/early '90s 4AD-laden world of shoegaze wash-rock like Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Mark Hollis, their predecessor Peter Gabriel, or modern day saint William Basinski. In the Lanois/Eno tradition, Burton collected an all-star cast to flesh out his vision with members of Horace Pinker, Olo, Black Mountain, Windsor For The Derby, Unwed Sailor, and Tortoise.

It was originally released on November 22nd, 2004 on Island Records and Interscope Records and features the singles Vertigo, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, City Of Blinding Lights, All Because of You, and Original of the Species.


    Much like their previous album, All That You Can't Leave Behind, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb exhibits a more mainstream rock sound after the band experimented with alternative rock and dance music in the 1990s. The album was produced by Steve Lillywhite, with additional production from Chris Thomas, Jacknife Lee, Nellee Hooper, Flood, Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno, and Carl Glanville.

    Silver Lake

    "Chesnutt's stories always strike an honest and recognizable emotionalchord, no matter how oddball the situations that surround them." - All Music

    "Vic Chesnutt might never be famous, but his songs touch on inner truths thatlurk around us. They strike something deep inside their listeners' beings." - Pop Matters

    At the time, you could count on two things with Vic Chesnutt: he wouldapproach any topic from the delicate to the mundane and he would take anunexpected angle. With an incisive eye and razor wit, he would always cutstraight to the heart of the matter. He did so to great effect on Silver Lake,giving equal weight to the tender affirmation of "In My Way, Yes" and thescathing self-critique of "Styrofoam," and applying his delightfully odd spin tothe standard love story on both "Band Camp" (a funny, nostalgic tale of romancein the high school horn section) and the Brian Wilson homage "Fa-La-La" (asaga of unanswered longing that's set in a hospital). Chesnutt's idiosyncraticquaver and nylon-string strum are abetted throughout by generous rock and soularrangements, all of which were pristinely recorded by Daniel Lanois protegeMark Howard (who also produced Lucinda Williams's World Without Tears).

    Battle Born

    From out of the wreckage of the American Civil War, the great state of Nevada came into being on October 31st, 1864. Its creation immediately helped to secure the re-election of Abraham Lincoln, the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment and, ultimately, the future of the union. Today, that proud but painful history is enshrined in the two words emblazoned on the upper left-hand corner of the state flag: Battle Born.


    That phrase has always resonated with Brandon Flowers. It's what The Killers named their studio in Las Vegas, and when the band reconvened last May to start work on the follow-up to 2008's Day & Age, it became first a song title, then a thematic touchstone, and eventually the name of the album itself. But not all battles are blood and thunder: after a yearlong hiatus that saw three of the four Killers launch solo careers, they quickly discovered that timing and circumstance can be daunting adversaries in their own right.


    Safe to say, Battle Born's title was well-earned. "It's the hardest thing I've ever done, no question," says Brandon. "It's the longest we've ever taken to make a record, and the longest I've ever spent on the lyrics. We thought we had enough songs, but then we realized that we didn't, and so we had to pound away and grind it out until we were certain that we were ready."


    A small-town drama of epic-scale proportions, "Runaways" is everything you could wish for from a Killers comeback single; an unmistakably American expression of romance and optimism that heralds their return with cyclonic, Who-esque guitars and a chorus big enough to be bellowed from one end of the Mojave to the other.


    One of the album's oldest songs, the bare bones were written in 2009 on the Day & Age tour, but, says Brandon, "We never knew what to do with it. Day & Age was us trying to be more of a pop group, but Runaways was rootsy and American, and it threw me for a curve. I knew it was a powerful song. But when it came time to make the album, there was an understanding the four of us had that we were gonna do what we're good at. The Killers write a specific kind of song, and we're not gonna shy away from it. So 'Runaways' became a kind of launching pad."


    More songs followed: the title track, a musical 'brother' to its lead single; "Here With Me," the album's heartstring-tugging emotional gravity-centre; the stadia-quaking electro-rock of "Flesh & Bone." By the time the band had satisfactorily refined that body of songs, however, none of the producers on their shortlist could commit to making a whole album, necessitating a process whereby they recorded in fits and starts with a stellar roll-call of names that included Daniel Lanois, Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Stuart Price and Brendan O'Brien.


    And therein lies Battle Born's real triumph. Recorded almost entirely at the studio that shares its name, it incorporates elements from each of the records that came before it; Hot Fuss' storytelling eye for detail; the yearning, mythic Americana of Sam's Town; the gratuitous hooks and pop nous of Day & Age; without sounding overtly like any one in particular. It's the sound of a band recognizing, and celebrating, their own identity. To borrow Brandon's maxim, Battle Born is The Killers "Doing what we do best."

    Blackberry Light

    Charlie Mars has been a journeyman artist with all the ups and downs that entails. He has gone from uncertainty to redemption with major label releases and high profile gigs opening for the likes of R.E.M., KT Turnstall, Citizen Cope and Steve Earle, among others. Now, with the extraordinary new Blackberry Light, the Mississippi-based troubadour builds his distinctive musical approach employing supple grooves and ambient Daniel Lanois-inspired production to enhance the elemental force of his classic songwriting influenced by Bob Marley, Bill Withers and Dire Straits.



    From the dreamlike Nothing But The Rain, to the shimmering Picture of An Island, Blackberry Light sees Mars delving deep within to offer insight and a path to self awareness and ultimately transcendence via a gracefully beatific distillation of folk, rock, and smooth acoustic soul. Mars took a modest tack towards overall recording of Blackberry Light, which took place at Austin's Treefort Studios under production prowess of Billy Harvey (Bob Schneider), looking to capture those perfect uncalculated moments where everything just clicks.



    Upon the sessions' conclusion, Mars sought out one of his dream collaborators legendary producer/engineer/mixer Tchad Blake. The Grammy-award winner, known for his distinctive work with such artists as Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson and Sheryl Crow, ultimately agreed and helped give Blackberry Light much of its uniquely spacious warmth. Like any songwriter worth his salt, Mars employs his art as a channel towards personal discovery, candidly exploring all the human limitations, from pride and fear to cynicism and self-doubt, that stand in the way of his attaining true happiness. 180g gatefold vinyl.

    So: 25th Anniversary Box Set (Out Of Stock)

    Ranked 187/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    Peter Gabriel's iconic So album remastered and expanded for the 25th anniversary edition


    One of the most successful and iconic music releases of the Eighties, Peter Gabriel's 1986 album, So, has been digitally remastered for a special 25th Anniversary Edition to be released by Real World Records/EMI. Peter Gabriel has confirmed a 16-date North American tour for September and October, with many of the musicians from his 1987 'So' tour joining him to perform the album from start to finish, as well as other hits spanning his solo career.


    Peter Gabriel's So topped charts around the world, hitting Number 1 in the UK, Canada, Italy, and Holland and Number 2 in the US and Germany. So became a decade-defining album and the best-selling release of Gabriel's solo career, landing an international array of multi-Platinum certifications, including quintuple-Platinum in the US with sales of more than five million copies.


    Launched with the huge hit single ''Sledgehammer'' and its groundbreaking music video (which remains MTV's most played video of all time), So also includes ''In Your Eyes,'' famously featured in Cameron Crowe's film 'Say Anything,' the haunting duet ''Don't Give Up,'' performed with Kate Bush, and ''Big Time,'' Gabriel's bombastic, tongue-in-cheek commentary on '80s extravagance. Co-produced by Gabriel and Daniel Lanois, the album also includes contributions from Laurie Anderson, Stewart Copeland, Jim Kerr, Bill Laswell, and Nile Rodgers.


    So's 25th Anniversary Edition will be available on a 4CD/2DVD/LP/12'' Deluxe, Limited Edition box set.


    The box set includes the remastered album on CD and on 180-gram vinyl which has been mastered at half speed to maximize the audio quality and re-sequenced so the tracklist, unlike that of the original LP, is as Peter Gabriel had originally envisioned. The set also features a bounty of previously unreleased audio and video content, including the two Athens concert CDs and a 'So DNA' CD of work-in-progress drafts of So's songs, mapping the album's evolution from concept to completion.


    One of the box set's two DVDs features the fully restored Athens concert, which was filmed and recorded by director Michael Chapman and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. Gabriel's first concert to be filmed, the footage has been assembled for the first time from more than 150 reels of original 35mm negatives and its audio has been mixed in 5.1 surround. The box set's second DVD features a new 'So: Classic Album' documentary. The latest addition to the acclaimed and award-winning 'Classic Album' series tells the story behind the making of the album and its music videos, with contributions from many of those involved, including interviews with Gabriel and Lanois, among others.


    The box set also includes a 12-inch double A-side vinyl single with two previously unreleased tracks from the So sessions, ''Courage'' and ''Sangrada,'' plus an alternate version of ''Don't Give Up'' (Piano and Bvox Mix). A 60-page case-bound book with an introduction and 'So DNA' summary written by Peter Gabriel, new liner notes, and an extensive collection of rare and never before seen photographs completes the set.
