The Life AcousticFeatures 10 Tracks From Everlast And House Of Pain's Catalog Performed Acoustically, With The Addition Of Two Covers
Grammy-winner Everlast releases his new album, The Life Acoustic, via his own label Martyr Inc. Records, in partnership with INgrooves. The Life Acoustic is a sort of retrospective on the singer/songwriter's career, with a mixture of classic Everlast and House of Pain material all stripped down to their acoustic essence.
"I wanted to dig up some of the songs that I felt were gems, yet they didn't get enough of a look the first time; and maybe in this light, they'll shine," says Everlast. "I picked my favorite songs, and recorded them straight-up acoustic, maybe a little keyboard and that's it. There's part of me that thinks maybe this is what I'm supposed to be doing I've done a couple of European tours acoustically now, and this just feels like the right time to put out an acoustic album."
The Valley Stream born rapper emerged as a member of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate for his 1990 solo album, Forever Everlasting, then formed the pioneering rap group House of Pain with friends DJ Lethal and Danny Boy. Signed to legendary dance and hip-hop label Tommy Boy Records, the group went multi-platinum with their self-titled 1992 debut which produced the legendary rap classic "Jump Around."
Everlast is a genre-bending veteran that has sold millions of records as both a solo artist and a member of two groups (House of Pain and La Coka Nostra.) He's won a Grammy and been nominated for two more. He also received an Emmy nomination for his work on the theme song for TNT's Saving Grace. He's successfully reinvented himself as an artist, started his own label, amassed an impressive art collection, and continues to evolve as a prominent singer / songwriter.

OVSE-MOV-801xHouse of Pain
House Of Pain (Fine Malt Lyrics)House of Pain was an Irish-styled American hip-hop group who released three albums in the 90's. Rapper Everlast teamed up with DJ Lethal and high school friend Danny Boy to form House of Pain. The group was signed to Tommy Boy Records, and their self-titled debut album (1992) went multi-platinum, spawning the successful DJ Muggs' (Cypress Hill) produced single Jump Around.
Fashioning themselves as rowdy Irish-American hooligans, they toured with various rap and alternative-rock bands after their breakthrough. You can also find them on the influential 1993 rock-rap collaborative Judgment Night movie soundtrack on which they perform a track together with Helmet. Put on your shit kickers and kick some...1.

American IV: The Man Comes AroundOn first thought, the idea of the Man in Black recording such covers as Bridge over Troubled Water, Danny Boy, and The First Time Ever I Saw Your
Face might seem odd, even for an artist who's been able to put his personal stamp on just about everything. But American IV: The Man Comes Around,
which also draws on Cash's original songs as well as those by Nine Inch Nails (Hurt), Sting (I Hung My Head), and Depeche Mode (Personal Jesus),
may be one of the most autobiographical albums of the 70-year-old singer-songwriter's career. Nearly every tune seems chosen to afford the ailing giant
of popular music a chance to reflect on his life, and look ahead to what's around the corner. From the opening track--Cash's own The Man Comes
Around, filled with frightening images of Armageddon--the album, produced by Rick Rubin, advances a quiet power and pathos, built around spare
arrangements and unflinching honesty in performance and subject. In 15 songs, Cash moves through dark, haunted meditations on death and
destruction, poignant farewells, testaments to everlasting love, and hopeful salutes to redemption. He sounds as if he means every word, his baritonebass,
frequently frayed and ravaged, taking on a weary beauty. By the time he gets to the Beatles' In My Life, you'll very nearly cry. Go ahead. He
sounds as if he's about to, too. Unforgettable. --Alanna Nash
This is the fourth in a series of collaborations between the original Man in Black, Johnny Cash, and producer Rick Rubin. The Man Comes Around
features new Cash compositions as well as a diverse array of cover songs, including Nine Inch Nails Hurt, Hank Williams I'm So Lonesome I Could
Cry, and Paul Simon's Bridge Over Troubled Waters. He duets with Don Henley on Desperado.1. The Man Comes Around

Everlasting EPDespite some personal problems and a general sense of chaos surrounding the band, Refused successfully managed to put together this seven-song EP of classic Swedish hardcore in 1994. Originally released in Europe on Startrec Records, Everlasting eventually hit stores in America on the Equal Vision imprint in 1997. More metallic than earlier releases, this disc has a progressive hardcore sound that bested the band's full-length debut, This Just Might Be the Truth. If the music changed a little, the group's staunch left-wing political outspokenness remained intact as just about every track rails against all things Western, especially cold corporate might and cultural imperialism. Standout tracks like Burn It and The Real stand up to the best American hardcore with their punchy riffs and highly charged, yet intelligent vocals. While much more raw than Refused's most recognized and accomplished effort, 1998's The Shape of Punk to Come, Everlasting is perhaps the group's second-best offering, demonstrating their significant mid-career development.

Its B-Side, a cover of "California Soul," was popular as well. When Tammi unfortunately died a few months after the album's release, Easy became a testament to her artistry and the everlasting work she did with Marvin Gaye.1. Good Lovin' Ain't Easy To Come By

ADAD-LOU-4635xJonathan Jackson + Enation
Radio CinematicJonathan Jackson is a five-time Daytime EMMY Award-winning actor for his role in General Hospital, and currently stars in the ABC primetime drama Nashville. Jonathan is also known for his roles in film, including Columbia's Deep End of the Ocean Disney's Tuck Everlasting and Warner Bros. Insomnia.
The foundations of Jonathan Jackson and his band Enation started with brothers Jonathan and Richard Jackson. Having been raised in Battle Ground, WA they moved to Hollywood, CA to pursue careers as actors at the ripe ages of 10 and 13. Music was in their blood, as their father Ricky Lee Jackson was a Nashville recording country music artist. Jonathan picked up the guitar and began writing songs and Richard had been playing drums since elementary school. Sibling rivalry turned into a synergy of complementary talent as the brothers began to play music together over the ensuing years, culminating in the partnership that is currently Enation along with longtime friend bass player Daniel Sweatt. The band spent the past year recording Radio Cinematic in Nashville, TN. Richard is also an actor who has appeared in film and television, most recently in Grimm.1. Young World's Riot

Wilco (The Album)Wilcos newest release and seventh studio outing, Wilco (the album), took shape quickly in January 2009 after the band traveled to Auckland, New Zealand to participate in an Oxfam International benefit project. The band began cutting tracks for the new album, producing it themselves with the help of engineer Jim Scott. The sextet completed the album at its Chicago loft studio and performed some of the new material in April at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Wilco (the album) combines the intimacy of its previous studio release, Sky Blue Sky (2007), with the experimentation of A Ghost Is Born (2004) in a set that boasts strong melodies and gorgeous, often unabashedly pop arrangements. Wilco has clearly laid out the welcome mat to admirers of all aspects of its career. The album even opens with Wilco (the song), originally unveiled in the groups performance on The Colbert Report last October.
Vocalist Jeff Tweedys lyrics remain frank and fascinating, and, similar to Sky Blue Sky, most songs are conscise. Bull Black Nova, however, features a dramatically building arrangement and thrilling guitar crescendo that comes across as more of a duel than a jam. Its followed by the gentle You and I, a duet between Tweedy and Canadian indie sensation Feist, and You Never Know, a glorious anthem. The album culminates with Everlasting Everything, a piano-driven ballad with delicate sonic nuances that lyrically celebrates loves enduring power.
The vinyl version of Wilco (the album) is pressed on 180-gram audiophile-quality vinyl and includes the complete album on CD and MP3. Per Wilco's high standards, the sonics are tremendous, filled with immense detail, warmth, and presence. Yet another masterwork by the best American rock band going.

Music From Big PinkRanked 34/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Take a Load Off with the Very Best-Sounding Analog Big Pink Ever Pressed
Half-Speed Mastered from the Original Master Tapes and Pressed at RTI
Includes The Weight, I Shall Be Released, This Wheel's On Fire
Youve likely heard the story. Now hear the results of one of the most famous sessions in history with a clarity and warmth never thought possible.
In late 1965 and early 1966, Bob Dylan shattered the boundaries between folk and rock music on a controversial tour that found the generation spokesman plugging in and shocking purist audiences that reviled in horror at the sight of their hero playing electric with a bunch of ragtag Canadian mates. Then known as the Hawks, the Band was that backing group, serving Dylan not only on the road but, playing with him after his motorcycle accident, on his seminal Basement Tapes collection.
Recorded in 1968 and ranked #34 on Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list, The Bands Music From Big Pink stems from the same localea pink farmhouse in upstate Woodstock, New Yorkas the Basement Tapes and is just as rustic, timeless, and mysterious as Dylans celebrated work. A debut for the ages, the album features two songs co-written with DylanThis Wheels on Fire, Tears of Rageas well as whats universally recognized as the definitive version of Dylans I Shall Be Released. More famously, it also includes The Weight, a standard covered by everyone from the Grateful Dead to Weezer to Aretha Franklin. But the power of this set doesnt lie in one song but the entire album.
A groundbreaking statement, Music From Big Pink lays bare the magnetism of the American South, Appalachian traditions, and country-rock innovations. That guitarist Robbie Robertson, pianist Garth Hudson, bassist Rick Danko, drummer/vocalist Levon Helm, and organist Richard Manuel are all household names only adds to the proof of this must-have records everlasting appeal. This is the majesty of what Greil Marcus called the old, weird America.
Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's analog version practically gives you a spot on the floor at Big Pink as the sessions went down. Curl up, close your eyes, and listen as the music's sublimely organic sounds appear with full-range dynamics, life-size imaging, and tremendous soundstaging. This is one of the reasons why you have a turntable. Prepare for your system, and your ears, to glow.

Bitches Brew (Out Of Stock)Monumental 1970 Double Album is Signpost for Jazz Fusion: Psychedelic Record Still Sounds Ahead of Its Time More Than 40 Years Later
Otherworldly Sonics: Mobile Fidelity Delivers the Consummate Pressing of the Uncompromising Work Ranked by Rolling Stone as Among the Greatest 100 Albums of All Time
Grammy Award-Winning Set Ignores Convention, Pursues Funk and Rock Directions Via Innovative Rhythms and Groundbreaking Ensemble Configurations
A Dozen Five-Star Miles Davis Albums Spanning 1958-1971 Available from Mobile Fidelity on Definitive-Sounding LP
"Listen to This." As the original working title for Bitches Brew, the invitation resonates as the best way to approach a record that shattered conventions, altered music history, and still sounds far ahead of its time. The aural Mount Rushmore of jazz fusion, Bitches Brew is rightly ranked by virtually every significant press outlet among the 100 greatest albums ever made in any genre.
Sewn together with vibrant colors, voodoo textures, and ethereal moods, the 1970 landmark emerges with supreme detail and nonpareil feeling on Mobile Fidelity's definitive 180g 2LP. Mastered from the original master tapes, these audiophile editions join the ranks of eleven other essential Davis sets given supreme sonic treatment by Mobile Fidelity.
Davis conceived Bitches Brew by having the musicians stand in a semi-circle, where he pointed at them with vague directions for tempo, solos, and cues. The collective improvisation and interplay spawned a galaxy of melodies and grooves later spliced together by producer Ted Macero. Here, these distinct creations take shape with utmost realism.
Mobile Fidelity's reissues envelop you in expansive warm tonal blankets.
Gathering a Hall of Fame-worthy lineup of musicians, Davis follows through on his idea to "put together the greatest rock and roll band you ever heard" on Bitches Brew. The vast psychedelic expanses of warped echoes, liquid reverb, and tape loops speak to the leader's ambitious contrasts of light and dark, fear and hope. Yet the most absolute characteristic of this watershed effort lies in how it encourages free thought-the very principle with which Davis
conceived the everlasting beauty that is Bitches Brew.

BrothersW/ CD version of the album included.
The maturation of the Black Keys as record makers and performers has been both subtle and startling. With their 2008 Nonesuch release Attack & Release, the fifth album of their eight-year career which doubled the sales of their previous album and Nonesuch debut Magic Potion, guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney illustrated the durability of their few-frills sound, a mysterious and heavy brew of '70s-vintage rock, classic R&B and timeless, downhearted blues. Producer and pal Danger Mouse, their first outside collaborator, didn't try to reinvent their sound but further isolated its essence with the help of a few carefully chosen guest players and some retro-modern electronic gear. It didn't need to get slicker to get better, or, as the Boston Globe put it, Attack & Release proves that cleaning up the boys still won't stop them from tracking mud all over the house.
Danger Mouse returned to co-produce Tighten Up on Brothers, but for the most part, the duo was on its own, spending ten days at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama and coming up with the an even more intensely focused, deeply soulful set that includes a cover of Jerry Butler's Never Gonna Give You Up. The performances are inventive and impassioned: Auerbach extends his vocal range to falsetto on lead-off track Everlasting Light and The Only One; Howlin' For You opens with a Gary Glitter-style drum riff and the chorus practically invites singing along. The tunes offer a surprising amount of lyrical candor and more than a little dark humor; the grooves alternate between ballsy swagger and bluesy rumination. The album reflects where Auerbach and Carney have been lately, most recently collaborating with a who's who of New York City MC's, including RZA, Q Tip, Mos Def and Raekwon on the 2009 BlakRocBlack Keys fan Damon Dash. They've also pursued projects on their own, Auerbach with his solo Keep It Hid album and tour, Carney with his band Drummer and its debut disc, Feels Good Together. Their maturation didn't happen just in the studio, though. Carney admits, Dan and I grew up a lot as individuals and musicians prior to making this album. Our relationship was tested in many ways but at the end of the day, we're brothers, and I think these songs reflect that. super-session organized by hip-hop impresario and
Brothers was primarily cut in Muscle Shoals, a setting that turned out to have more in common with the Akron, Ohio factories where the Black Keys used to record. The place was desolate, the town depressed, so once again the duo slipped into a world all its own. They did additional recording at Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound System in Akron and The Bunker in Brooklyn. The album was mixed by engineer Tchad Blake, a veteran of sessions with Los Lobos, Pearl Jam and Peter Gabriel. Says Carney, The way he approaches mixing is the same way we approach making music.

Rarely is so much meaning conveyed in the space of six letters. And with regard to Xiu Xiu, its applications are infinite: always relevant, always provocative, always surprising, always evolving, always glittering.
It's fitting, then, that as the band (now comprised of Jamie Stewart, Angela Seo, Bettina Escauriza, Marc Riordan, and returning member Devin Hoff) marks a decade in existence, such a powerful sentiment would serve as the title of its latest album.
At its core, Always symbolizes the mutual camaraderie with and deep dedication to each person who has internalized Xiu Xius work, tattooed its name on their skin or soul, and throughout the past ten years made the band a part of their lives. The origin of these intense, everlasting bonds is Stewart. His fearless lyrics have given voice to life's most untouchable and taboo subjects, while his distinctively committed but hushed vocals crystallize and medicate their unsettling impact.
Those familiar with the band's work will take particular note of the times Stewart re-visits profoundly personal accounts from his own life -- most prominently on Beauty Towne (a not-so-uplifting postscript to the muddle of those depicted in Clowne Towne from 2004's Fabulous Muscles) and Black Drum Machine (which finishes the narrative of incest and molestation begun on Black Keyboard from 2008's Women as Lovers).
Elsewhere, Stewart's willingness to broach any subject finds him confronting both the topical and the intimate in equally meaningful ways: Gul Mudin seeks to bring comfort to an Afghani teenage boy murdered for sport by American soldiers; Joey's Song strives to do the same for Stewart's brother in the aftermath of a family tragedy.
Factory Girls chronicles the sexual objectification and desperate existence of Chinese female, migrant workers. I Luv Abortion, featuring perhaps Stewart's most unhinged vocal ever, careens through the resolute heartache of a friend too young to be pregnant and seeks to personalize this most political issue.
But while such writing is worthy of reverence, Always' most arresting moments lie in its sonic innovation -- transforming avant pop elements from an undertone into a bright black focal point while adding new influences such as choral music, kraut rock and animal field recordings.
Produced by Deerhoof's Greg Saunier (who also contributes drums and vocals to the album) and mixed by John Congleton (Antony and the Johnsons, Marylin Manson, the Roots) the album is positively vibrant.
During recording, Stewart saw a Bible verse spray painted on the wall of his gym. He interpreted the verse to mean, Horror and beauty are the same; love and hate are the same, the tireless dread of our own lives and of living can be embraced with the same fervency as what we find beautiful.
Composed of this essence, the album proves that perhaps the only six letters to carry the same weight as always are these: Xiu Xiu.1. Hi

This Is My Truth, Tell Me YoursManic Street Preachers originally gained a loyal following and cult status with their combination of androgynous glam punk imagery, outspoken invective and songs about culture, alienation, boredom and despair.
The band's later albums retained a leftist politicization and intellectual lyrical style, while adopting a broader alternative rock sound, especially after the mysterious disappearance of lyricist and rhythm guitarist Richey Edwards in 1995.
'This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours' is their fifth album, originally released in 1998.
It features the singles 'The Everlasting', 'You Stole the Sun from My Heart', 'Tsunami' and 'If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next'.
The latter was their first single to debut at #1 on the UK Singles Chart.
On top of this, the album won Best British Album at the 1999 Brit Awards.1. The Everlasting

Modern Vampires Of The CityModern Vampires of the City is Vampire Weekend's third album, and it will be released on May 7th, 2013. The album is a bustling world of voices and visions - from the death of Henry Hudson to the Orthodox girl falling in love at an uptown falafel shop, from Hannah Hunt tearing up the New York
Times on a distant beach to the lethal chandelier of "Everlasting Arms", from the ardent yearning of "Don't Lie" to the harmonized voice of hope in "Young Lion".
For this album, Rostam Batmanglij and Ezra Koenig traveled to LA to collaborate with Rostam's longtime friend, and fellow producer, Ariel Rechtshaid. They brought with them writing and recording sessions from New York and Martha's Vineyard and began to stride towards realizing the finished album and were later joined by drummer Chris Tomson and bassist Chris Baio. Drums and bass were recorded to analog tape at Vox Studios. Built in the 1930's, it's one
of the oldest privately owned studios in Los Angeles. Those parts were then reintegrated with the sessions and further manipulated to create a synthesis of sound and tone, both old and new. Modern Vampires of the City has a grandeur and romanticism evocative of the city where it was conceived.1. Obvious Bicycle

The PlatformOn the West Coast, gangsta rap held sway in hip-hop as the 21st century began. The alternative and conscious rap music of the early-to-mid-90s had all but faded into the underground. The scene was set for a comeback, perhaps as a backlash to the perceived violence and misogyny of gangsta rap's content. Leading the resurgence of alternative hip-hop were groups like Jurassic 5, and recent signees to Capitol Records; a West coast trio that had been building steam underground since the early 90s called Dilated Peoples.
Anticipation was high for the release of the debut album from Evidence, Rakaa, and DJ Babu. (Of the influential turntablist collective Beat Junkies.) When The Platform arrived in May of 2000 it was met with critical and underground acclaim, as well as affording Dilated Peoples their first Billboard chartings. It featured a back-to-basics sound with a heavy debt to the old-school hip-hop ethos, the kind of sound that harkened back to the early days of legends like De La Soul & A Tribe Called Quest. Hits like No Retreat and The Platform were bolstered by Evidence & Rakaa's subtle, abstract wit, and swift, adroit wordplay, while DJ Babu provided production chops and dextrous scratches. On The Platform, the trio was joined by the likes of B-Real, Tha Alkoholiks, Everlast, Planet Asia, and many more providing guest vocals, while boasting guest production from The Alchemist & Kut Masta Kurt, among others.
Since its 2000 release this influential record, which heralded the return of alternative hip-hop, has never seen a vinyl reissue. With that, Get On Down-always on top of giving the greatest hip-hop albums their due is proud to present this re-release of The Platform. The rhymes are still fresh, the production is still pristine, and the album is now back on vinyl for the first time in 17 years.LP 1

I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time (Out Of Stock)Hailing from Canterbury, England, Moose Blood was formed in 2012 by close friends Brewerton, Mark Osborne, Glenn Harvey and Kyle Todd. United by
their passion for music and love for mid 90's emo, the band set out to create a sound that was distinctly their own. Since their inception the band has
released two EPs, Moving Home and Boston/Orlando, and a split 7" with labelmates Departures with their new label No Sleep Records and has toured
with bands like Appleseed Cast, I Am The Avalanche, Major League and Dads. Two short years after forming, Moose Blood returns with their impressive,
debut full-length record, I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time.
"I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is everything that we've been working towards since the start of the band in 2012," says drummer Glenn
Harvey. "I think there is a much more personal and honest feel to this record than on anything else we've done up to this point. Seeing these songs turn
from ideas at our practice space to a finished 11 track album has been an incredible experience. We're all really proud of this record and we can't wait for
everybody to finally hear it."
Moose Blood aren't afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Produced by Saosin guitarist Beau Burchell, I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is
replete with heartfelt, yearning lyrics about life and love that exude vulnerability with a comforting warmth. The record moves through waves of emotion
from the pensive opening balad "Cherry" to the follow-up upbeat tempo of "Anyway," sailing through the mounting crescendos of "I Hope You're Missing
Me" to the memorable, driving rhythm of "Swim Down." With each chorus and riff, I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time draws listeners in with its
unrelenting honesty and intense passion. 2014 will undoubtedly be the year Moose Blood makes their everlasting mark on the alternative rock scene.1. Cherry
