    Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres

    Eternal life can seem like an eternity. Ask any vampire. The continuous march of sun ups, sun downs, transformations of form, seductions, cape fittings & exsanguinations. Eventually it all just becomes an endless, tired routine. It all seems so exciting & so sexy to those of us who operate knowing we have limited time. But ask any vampire about the downside of eternal life, & you won't be surprised to hear tales of binge eating garlic bread just to feel the hurt, or of the occasional dangling of a wooden stake just over the center of the rib cage.


    Electric Six knows all about eternal life. Electric Six has been around forever & it can never die. That's lovely, but it's also very tiring. Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres is the new release by Electric Six on Metropolis Records. One listen & you will immediately understand that the sexiest vampires are urban vampires. Where E6 has dabbled in dance, hip-hop & R&B in the past, Fresh Blood is the whole enchilada. It's thirteen songs designed to make the listener interested in smooth & nasty fuckin', the way they do it in the city. From the Grandmaster Flash-inspired Number Of The Beast to the super smooth tour of the NYC outer boroughs Mood Is Improving, the listener finds himself immediately deposited into an urban drop zone with hustlas & dickblockas coming from behind every corner.


    The radio-ready pop hits I'll Be In Touch & Dance With Dark Forces are the tracks that get the listener off the street & into the club. & it would not be an Electric Six album without an epic closer, that being the beautiful & haunting Spacewalkin', the ballad that assures the listener that the vampire has now fed & will live a thousand more years, albeit in outer space. Electric Six changes more frequently than change itself, but ultimately this just means they're never gonna put out the same album twice. Fresh Blood for Tired Vampires is poppy & smooth, nasty & raw...& oh so life affirming, especially if you are undead.

    The Lady Gone Electric

    Limited Edition White Vinyl


    Recorded at the Electric Ladyland Studios in New York City, in December 1974 in preparation for their first US tour, this sublime Rush performance was given in front of an audience of 8-12 people in the small studio, and thus provides a fine example of this remarkable band's early live sound.


    This was also the earliest recording made with Neil Peart on drums, Peart having replaced their former skins-man John Rutsy, a few months before this show. They perform material from their first album and new songs from the soon to be released Fly by Night LP. The show was undertaken to provide a live broadcast for FM Radio, and was transmitted across the airwaves prior to the release of Fly by Night.
    We get a rare treat in Working Man, when Alex delivers a guitar solo outside of the normal structure of the song.


    Apparently, several mics were set up around the studio, with only a very basic soundboard feed. The result is a very well-mixed sound - so much so, in places it sounds as though its lifted direct from the first album.

    Electric Trim

    Lee Ranaldo has announced details of a brand new album, Electric Trim.

    Electric Trim was recorded in New York City and Barcelona in collaboration with producer RaÜl Refree Fernandez and extends the work of Ranaldo's Solo canon, the most recent being his 2013 album, Last Night On Earth.Through his collaboration with Fernandez, Ranaldo moves into some rich new sonic territories and production techniques, experimenting with electronic beats and samples alongside live players.

    Ranaldo is a co-founder of Sonic Youth, a visual artist, producer and writer. In addition to Fernandez, he worked with several special guests on Electric Trim, including Sharon Van Etten who sings on six of the tracks and duets on Last Looks and Kid Millions (aka Man Forever) as well as longtime friend and collaborator Nels Cline (Wilco). In addition, the album features Ranaldo's band The Dust (fellow Sonic Youth member Steve Shelley, guitarist Alann Licht, and bassist Tim Luntzel).

    Ranaldo collaborated with award-winning New York author Jonathan Lethem (Motherless Brooklyn / The Fortress of Solitude) for lyrics on six of the songs. The American artist Richard Prince, who previously painted the sleeve for Sonic Youth's 2004 album Sonic Nurse, created the artwork for the album.

    The nine-track album marks a return to the Mute family for Ranaldo, who says: I'm so excited about this record, it represents new developments and directions for me and I can't wait to hit the road and play this music live. I'm also so pleased to partner with Mute for this release - it's like a homecoming of sorts as Sonic Youth's early records were released on Blast First / Mute. To me, Mute has always been a true artist's label,concentrating first and foremost on the music.

    Magnolia Electric Co


    10th Anniversay Deluxe Edition


    Expanded Reissue Of Songs: Ohia's Classic Record Gathering Together One Unreleased Song, Demos And Full-band Song Only
    Previously Available In Japan.


    Includes Rare Photos From The Era In Which It Was Recorded


    The hallmark of Jason Molina's career, Magnolia Electric Co., is both a confluence of all he would create and a line in the
    sand to mark a shift in his songwriting approach. It was the last statement under his iconic Songs: Ohia moniker, and the
    moment before he began making new legends as Magnolia Electric Co. for the next 10 years. Now- here at the end of that
    decade - with Molina gone, his work gathers more weight and meaning. This expanded 10-year anniversary edition of
    Magnolia Electric Co. features one never-before-released track plus many rarities. The full-band studio outtake of fan
    favorite Whip Poor Will is a sweet and spare version that ended up being played far differently on Magnolia Electric Co.'s
    final album Josephine (2009). Also included is the studio version of The Big Game Is Every Night. Previously only available
    on the Japanese version of the album, this opus serves as Molina's thesis statement, its poetry weaving through the 20th
    Century, through art and sporting culture - ultimately questioning what it means to be an American in the autumn of the
    American Era. The edition also gathers Molina's gutting demos for the record, including those two outtakes. Nearly each
    begins with audible sound of the RECORD button being pressed down on the tape player. They are so close and intimate,
    it's hard to look them right in the eyes. But you should.


    With the wailing lap steel of the album opener Farewell Transmission, Jason Molina & Company usher in a new day,
    playing the sort of rock that your cool uncle rolled to back in the '70s. Landing somewhere on the radar sonically between
    Bob Dylan's Desire and Bob Seger's Beautiful Loser, though thematically in-line with Lynyrd Skynyrd's Simple Man, The
    Magnolia Electric Co lies at the crossroads of working class rock, white soul, swamp rock and outlaw country


    While Songs: Ohia's last record Didn't It Rain was a meditation on roots and stability, Magnolia Electric Co. finds itself
    toiling with the wages of change, which is well illustrated in I've Been Riding with the Ghost, a real rig rocker that could
    have easily fit on Time Fades Away, on which Molina sings: See I ain't getting better, I am only getting behind. Standing on
    the crossroad trying to make up my mind. Trying to remember how it got so late. Why every night pain comes from a
    different place. Now something's got to change.


    This thematic preoccupation with change also manifests itself in the rotating cast of lead vocalists. While the entire album
    boasts a doo wop-like line-up with five vocalists on the floor, six of the eight songs have Molina in the tall stool with the
    ever-enchanting Jennie Benford (of Jim & Jennie & the Pinetops, who was also a key player on Didn't It Rain) as primary
    back-up vocalist. But on two songs, new Songs: Ohia players step up to take on lead vocal duties, singing Molina-penned
    songs. Lawrence Peters takes the lead on The Old Black Hen with his fantastic Merle Haggard-esque country croon, while
    Miss Scout Niblett appears from the nether world of the Ohia wardrobe with feathers in her hair and casts her spell on the
    Ohia rig barreling through Peoria Lunch Box Blues.


    Recorded live, in its entirety, at the hands of Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago, Illinois, with the same
    core back-up band that played on the Mi Sei Apparaso Come Un Fantasma Italian live album, this is the record where the
    Songs: Ohia fan demographics make a radical shift from the dominant bedroom universe of the world's lonely, sensitive,
    overqualified young white dudes, and finds refuge in the masses by being embraced by the world's truck drivers, sorority
    chicks, and hockey players, alike. Indeed, this is the first Songs: Ohia record with more than one song that could be played
    at a strip joint or monster truck show. Amid the mid-tempo slow jams, there lie some of the most upbeat material that
    Songs: Ohia has recorded to date.

    Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band

    It all started over a year ago with the caption "MINDBLOWING PSYCHEDELIA FROM THAILAND"-the Youtube video that accompanied this headline on the Dangerous Minds Blog was exactly that. Here was a group of Thai
    musicians being filmed parading through a remote village hundreds of miles
    away from Bangkok playing some of the heaviest Psych known to mankind out
    of a crazy homemade soundsystem. Who were these men and how on earth was
    this not some unearthed archived footage from the '60s or '70s?! The Youtube
    clip quickly made its rounds amongst music enthusiasts leaving many in the
    Western hemisphere to question who this group of contemporary Thai villagers
    (loosely named Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band) was.


    Six months after that first encounter with Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band, a
    Los Angeles music producer named Josh Marcy used Facebook and some unlikely interpreters at his local Thai restaurant to get in contact with the band and
    inquire whether they'd be interested in having him travel to their town to record
    their music for a global audience. At first the band was naturally suspicious, but
    through subsequent interactions the group's leader and namesake Khun Narin
    (also known simply as "Rin") warmed to the idea of having Marcy come visit.
    And so began the journey of uncovering who these mysterious men from an
    obscure blog post actually were.


    Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band's membership is always in rotation and spans
    several generations, from high school kids to men well into their 60s. A standard
    engagement has the band setting up at the hosting household during the morning rituals, playing several low-key sets from the comfort of plastic lawn chairs
    occasionally working in a cover version of a foreign classic (The Cranberries
    'Zombie' is a recent favorite) while the beer and whiskey flow freely. After a
    mid-day banquet, they start up the generator and lead a parade through the community to the local temple, picking up more and more partiers along the way

    Musik, Die Schwer zu Twerk

    Electric Wurms, is a prog-rock side project featuring THE FLAMING LIPS multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd on vocals, guitars, and keyboards and front man Wayne Coyne on bass and backed by Nashville psychedelic rock band Linear Downfall.


    A six-song album on Warner Bros. Records. Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk, will transport the listener into a new kind of transcendental orbit than one might expect from THE LIPS alone. Instead, these six velvety compositions appear to be harvested from a higher bardo plane of sound yet maintain a pleasantly familiar rock "experience" associated with The Lipsian oeuvre.


    The first single from Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk, is a cover of British prog-rock band Yes' "Heart of The Sunrise."

    6 Feet Beneath The Moon

    Six Feet Beneath The Moon is the long-anticipated debut album from Southeast London's King Krule.


    Archy Marshall aka King Krule broke out two years ago, at the tender age of 16 with his eponymous
    EP released on True Panther. King Krule's sound, a
    hypnotic mixture indebted to working class British
    song-smiths like Billy Bragg as much as NY No-Wave
    and hip hop carries a maturity and depth far beyond
    his years. The EP's lead single, "Noose of Jah City"
    found a great deal of success on BBC's Radio 1,
    and brought Archy praise from Pitchfork, The NY
    Times, FADER and numerous other publications. His
    music has also won him fans among today's young
    music elite - Mac Miller, Frank Ocean and Tyler, The
    Creator are all supporters, collaborators and fans.


    Six Feet Beneath The Moon takes the potential
    evident in the EP and blows it out of the water.
    Across 14 tracks Archy expertly weaves incredible
    stories of London life, his own relationships and
    experiences with the swagger of a street poet, all in his incredibly distinct smoky baritone. The album, recorded mostly near Archy's South London
    home with producer Rodaidh McDonnell (The XX,
    Savages, How To Dress Well) is stark but incredibly
    rich - painting with a palate full of hip hop, jazz, no-wave and poetic influences.


    The album shares the electric confidence of some of last decade's most important debuts - Arctic
    Monkeys' Whatever People Say I Am, That's What
    I'm Not', The Streets' Original Pirate Material and
    Dizzee Rascal's Boy In Da Corner. It is somehow
    both a perfect summary of a young man's life in a
    particular part of London and a universal, deeply
    moving and compelling statement. Most importantly,
    it is the flag ushering in a new and important musical voice that is sure to be with us for quite some time.

    The Things That We Are Made Of

    The Things That We Are Made Of, the new full-length album by renowned and beloved singer, songwriter and performer Mary Chapin Carpenter, will be released on Lambent Light Records via Thirty Tigers.


    Produced by 2016 Producer of the Year Grammy-nominee Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album features eleven new songs, including the lead track "Something Tamed Something Wild. Of the song, Rolling Stone praises, " beautifully sums up where she's been and sets the stage for what's yet to come 'Something Tamed Something Wild' and indeed the entire new album finds the songwriter at her most thoughtful and also at times sweetly whimsical, perfectly capturing the buoyant spirit of her early successes and also serving as a reminder that she remains one of the most grounded, sentient songwriters of her generation."


    The Things That We Are Made Of was recorded at Nashville's Sound Emporium and Low Country Sound studios during the spring and summer of 2015. In addition to Carpenter (vocals, electric/acoustic guitar), the album features Cobb (electric/acoustic/gut string guitar, percussion, Moog, Mellotron), Annie Clements (bass), Brian Allen (bass), Chris Powell (drums, percussion), Mike Webb (piano, B3 organ, reed organ, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes) and Jimmy Wallace (piano, B3 organ).


    Of the album, Carpenter comments, "Working with Dave felt great from the first day of our sessions. He is always willing to try something new, believes that 'yes' is the only answer, and surrounds himself with wonderfully talented and generous musicians; by the end of the project, I felt as if I was a part of a new family." Cobb adds, "I wanted to work with Mary Chapin because very few people can cut with words like she can. She's an absolute poet and legend. I was so happy to collaborate on this album together."


    Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 million records. With hits like "Passionate Kisses" and "He Thinks He'll Keep Her," she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Most recently, in 2014, Carpenter released her acclaimed debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie. Arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza, the record is comprised of ten previously recorded compositions including "Between Here and Gone" and "Come On Come On." Since it's release, Carpenter has performed alongside the New York Philharmonic, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the London Concert Orchestra, the L.A. Philharmonic and the National Symphony Orchestra among many others.

    Enter

    Russian Circles was formed in Chicago in 2004 by guitarist Mike Sullivan and drummer Dave Turncrantz. The trio's 2006 debut, Enter, quickly established the band amongst heavy instruments peers. With the addition of former Botch and These Arms Are Snakes bassist Brian Cook on their second album, Station, Russian Circles solidified its lineup. To date the band has released 5 critically-praised albums and continues to headline tours worldwide. In celebration of Russian Circles' 10th anniversary, Sargent House is proud to announce a re-issue of the band's critically acclaimed debut full length, 2006's Enter. Recorded over the course of five quick days with Greg Norman (Guided By Voices, Pelican, Neurosis) at the renowned Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, Enter contains only six tracks, but they pack a lot into them - the album clocks in at 44 minutes. Each song flows into the next as if the record were one single composition in six movements.

    The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

    Explosions in the Sky's second effort takes a more studied, even lush approach to the literate chaos of their 2001 debut. But put on your sad sack thinking cap now, because Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is a contemplative and heady rush of masterful melancholia. Its six songs are multi-minute, slow motion workouts of gentle electric guitar plucks and subtle/sudden washes of percussion ù they're still instrumental, but as lyrical as anything in the indie rock universe. 'Only Moment We Were Alone' turns on a simple, melancholy guitar figure, the drums shifting from insistent catch-up mode to a studied march built to introduce the next layered crescendo. Explosions in the Sky doesn't shift as suddenly or jarringly on Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place; the quartet has applied more structural predictability this time out, but is still quick about setting the sad butterflies in your stomach to fluttering. 'Memorial' is the album's meditative heart. It begins so quietly, reduced to brittle landscapes of tone. Lightly chiming guitars drift in, like the echoes of church bells off in narrow city streets. Then, like each of the album's movements, it surges forward in a rush, like the overtures of Sonic Youth separated, dried, and ultimately lengthened in the blistering Texas sun. The final blast of distortion and staccato drumming is Earth at full bittersweet bluster. 'Your Hand in Mine' ends things as they began, with a pair of determined guitars picking out a melody that's both pretty and pretty damn heartbreaking.

    Blues Roots (Pure Pleasure)

    Although this is a blues-oriented set, there is plenty of variety in tempos and grooves. The 1968 Quartet featured the leader/pianist, baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, bassist Jack Six and drummer Alan Dawson. The repertoire on this LP ranges from Limehouse Blues (which is not really a blues) to Things Ain't What They Used To Be and several originals. These songs are average for 1968, but the soloing is remarkable and the musicians here are some of the best. Journey is a remarkably beautiful piano ballad, while Blues Roots narrowly rises above in it's epic scope, and over-the-top ending. It's probably my favourite song here. But, Broke Blues is also exceptional. This one, along with Cross Ties and Blues Roots, are fairly progressive, drawing as much from post bop as blues and traditional Jazz, pushing toward avante-garde. -G. Skate/S. Yannow

    Musicians:



    • Dave Brubeck (piano)
    • Gerry Mulligan (bassoon))
    • Jack Six (bass, electric bass)
    • Alan Dawson (drums)




    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    180 Gram Vinyl Reissue


    The first recording by the Pat Metheny Group features the innovative guitarist along with keyboardist Lyle Mays, bassist Mark Egan, and drummer Dan Gottlieb. The music is quite distinctive, floating rather than swinging, electric but not rockish, and full of folkish melodies. The best known of these six Metheny-Mays originals are Phase Dance and Jaco. This music grows in interest with each listen!

    Freddy King Gives You a Bonanza of Instrumentals

    Freddie Kings second all-instrumental album, Freddy King Gives You a Bonanza of Instrumentals, originally released in 1965 on King Records Federal subsidiary, continued the artists winning streak, with such memorable King originals as Manhole, Freeway 75, Low Tide and Funnybone. The 12-song LP demonstrates once again why King was one of his generations most revered electric guitarists.


    Although his career was tragically cut short by his death at the age of 42, Freddie King was one of Americas most distinctive and influential electric blues guitarists, leaving an indelible mark on more than one generation of guitar superstars, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Rolling Stones Mick Taylor. The Texas-born axeman began playing guitar at the age of six, and in his teens moved with his family to the South Side of Chicago, where he was inspired by witnessing club gigs by such seminal electric bluesmen as Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers and Elmore James. Originally billed as Freddy King, he began recording in 1957, revealing a massively influential style that merged his Texas and Chicago influences, and soon achieved commercial success with a series of infectious instrumental hits.

    KE*A*H** (Psalm 69)

    Ministry's 1992 album, Psalm 69 is arguably one of the most important and influential industrial metal albums in music history. Its pounding electric beats, crushing metal guitar riffs and well-placed samples make tracks like N.W.O, Justifix Psalm 69 and Jesus Built My Hotrod sound absolutely collosal and the album's success helped bring industrial metal to the mainstream.

    Ethiopia Super Krar

    Ethiopia Super Krar is the debut album by London-based Ethiopian band, The Krar Collective. The group is steadily making waves at festivals and venues in the UK, headed by the trio: Temesegen Zeleke (a former pupil of the Ethio-jazz veteran Mulatu Astatke) on krar, Robel Tesfaye on traditional Ethiopian kebero drums, and singer-dancer Genet Assefa.



    Inspired by the rich cultural diversity of Ethiopia, a land steeped in history of 80 different language and ethnic groups, The Krar Collective is, of course, all about the krar - a six-stringed harp-like instrument, tuned to a pentatonic scale that is characteristic of Ethiopian and Eritrean music. The krar is often played by singer-poets called azmari, similar to the west African griot, the Italian cantautore or British bard. The lyre itself is an ancient instrument that originated in the Nile River and spread across north and eastern Africa, Europe and Asia. Today the krar is used both as an acoustic, bass and electric instrument, and paired up to compliment the electric guitar.




    Ethiopia Super Krar is rooted in tradition but remains undisputedly fresh. The tracks were recorded to tape on an original 1960s 24-track reel-to-reel machine, which lends a live quality to the recording. Zeleke describes their sound as "Ethiopian traditional music with a rocky edge. Someone called us 'the White Stripes of Ethiopia' cos we just have drums and six strings".



    Rhythmically hypnotic, melodic, bluesy and upbeat, the Krar Collective have got us all shaking our shoulders to the ancient sounds of the krar.

    Had To Cry Today

    Blues-rock guitar wizard Joe Bonamassa can make a set of electric six-strings burn and wail, but like many such guitarists, he still requires focus for it to be truly special. Such intense focus is a hallmark of Had To Cry Today. While some guitarists squander notes, Bonamassa makes each one count whether he's engaging in country-flavored picking (the late, great Danny Gatton was clearly an influence), blistering rock-edged blues, or turbulent, inspired jamming. Had To Cry Today delivers on Bonamassa's previous promise in a big way.

    Emanations

    Emanations is the sophomore album from NYC doom super group SERPENTINE PATH. The band's 2012 self-titled debut was a boldly grim statement of unforgiving misanthropy that referenced both the filthy riffs of Autopsy and the stoney doom of Sleep. Now officially augmented by second guitarist Stephen Flam, the mastermind behind NYC doom/death legends Winter, SERPENTINE PATH are truly a heavy metal all-star team (the band also features current and former members of doom legends Electric Wizard, Unearthly Trance and Ramesses). Sure, the pedigree is undeniable, but regardless of their 'members of' status, SERPENTINE PATH are one of the heaviest bands on the planet today!
