    Flux

    With Flux, Rich presents his most accomplished solo album to date--13 new, original songs that draw deeply on his
    diverse roots. A blues-rock odyssey straight from Robinson's soul, the guitarist returned to Applehead Studios in
    Saugerties, NY, the recording facility that has become his creative hub. Nestled away within Woodstock's famed
    artist enclave, Robinson's work at the studio has yielded Woodstock Sessions, The Ceaseless Sight, and now Flux.

    Occult Classic

    180 Gram Clear Vinyl


    The 'OCCULT CLASSIC' LP opens with the Rock City and
    AWOLNATION featured "Kill It 4 the Kids" single, whose
    whirlwind of lighters-up metal, signature bass growls and
    festival sized synthwork make up one of the release's many
    style hopping switch ups; including the Youtube flavored
    Baltimore Club of the "Dolphin on Wheels" collaboration with
    Dillon Francis, the rowdy dubstep-meets-drum & bass head
    banger, "Spitfire Riddim" with Madsonik, and the razor sharp
    bassline-backed electro thump of "Louder" with Tommy
    Trash.


    At times, the album feels like a snapshot of his adrenaline
    fueled live sets, which he's performed from some of the
    most iconic stages in the world (Coachella, Lollapalooza,
    EDC Las Vegas, Holy Ship! and the Mad Decent Block
    Party). In the midst of touring and working on music over
    the last few years, Kill the Noise has also received MTV
    Clubland's Music Video pick of the year twice (2012,
    2013), he's collaborated on official releases with Skrillex,
    Korn, Passion Pit, and Flux Pavilion, and he co-wrote and
    produced 2014's "Shell Shocked" from Paramount
    Picture's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soundtrack
    alongside Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign.

    Flux Outside

    Comprised of frontman Ryan Schaefer, drummer Chris Rusk and guitarist Sam Stratton, Royal Bangs combine catchy hooks with heavy synths to create a sound that SPIN Magazine describes as a mix of LCD Soundsystem's pulsing eletro-punk and the new Wave-y shimmer of the Strokes.


    Hailing from Knoxville, TN, Royal Bangs received some local buzz from their self-recorded album We Breed Champions, catching the attention of Patrick Carney (The Black Keys) who then re-released the progressive album on his own record label. The band followed up that effort with Let It Bleep which was released in 2009 to critical acclaim.


    In September of 2010, Royal Bangs signed with Glassnote Records. Their newest release, Flux Outside was mixed by Dave Fridman (Flaming Lips/MGMT). Gatefold double LP with MP3 download card.

    AC Power Can Make or Break Your System

    The audio you hear from your home entertainment system is essentially the incoming electricity itself, and the typically violent storms riding the AC line and its ground is very detrimental to the performance of your components. Highly resolving audio and video systems can retrieve incredible amounts of detail from your favorite recordings. Unfortunately, they can also reveal problems elsewhere in the power chain-especially when it comes to noise flowing through your valuable components from your AC power mains. The Furutech Flux-50 filter is, in every sense of the word, a top-of-the-line high-performance filter that was designed to eliminate all radiated AC noise from high-quality audio and video systems.


    What's innovative about the Furutech Flux-50 is that it eliminates AC noise without affecting any of the highest frequencies. That means the Flux-50 won't rob music of the air, dynamic contrasts and 3-D qualities that are reinforced by frequencies normally thought to be outside of the normal range of human hearing 100 kHz, 500 kHz and beyond.


    The Furutech Flux-50 filter contains many of the innovative features found in our other power filters such as:


    • 24K gold-plated Alpha non-magnetic connectors and conductors that protect against radiated noise

    • RoHS compliant flexible PVC sheath for improved isolation from vibration

    • High-grade PE insulation that helps to reduce capacitance

    • Patented Floating Field Damper which acts as a very effective earth/ground jumper system



    The Flux-50 takes these technologies a step further by combining Furutech's most advanced Piezo Ceramic bodies with rhodium-plated Alpha pure copper conductors using premium FI-50R connectors. In addition, all metallic parts are treated with the Furutech Alpha Process-a super cryogenic and demagnetizing treatment. All of this adds up to unequaled performance when it comes to reducing and eliminating radiated AC noise from high-quality audio and video systems.


    It's simple-the finest systems can be extraordinarily revealing when it comes to your recordings, your AC power mains and even your local power grid. The Flux-50 removes all that high-frequency trash noise and lets the music flow effortlessly.

    My Ion Truss

    In the distance the land kisses the sky. If you squint just right you can see Minus Story in flux there, somewhere between earthbound and ethereal, making sunspots on the horizon with their noisy and melodic headphone pop. They speak their own codified musical language as only childhood friends can share. Tirelessly artistic yet unpretentious, they are unafraid of abject noise, folk, soul, or straight-up pop rock. My Ion Truss is an epic and anthemic cross between Pearl Jam, Queen, Brian Eno, and Roxy Music.

    Prestige Series Blue Cartridge

    The Prestige (and upscale Reference) cartridges from Grado are the first released since the elder Grado's retirement, but they mark an evolution, not dramatic change, of the classic Grado style. There are three basic levels in the Prestige lineup: Black/Green, Blue/Red, and Silver/Gold. In each of these pairings, the latter model is the same as the former, but is able to meet more astringent test specifications. The Green, for instance, is taken from the top 15% of the Black models production.


    The newly redesigned Blue1 and Red1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Blue1 and Red1 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Red1 model is selected from the Blue1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 10% of the production run will meet these standards and become Red1 models.


    All Grado Prestige cartridges have a fixed magnet and coils that generate a flux field axial pivot. A small generator disc is attached to the back end of the cantilever and moves within the lines of flux of the four coils and magnet generating a signal in response to stylus movement. The user-replaceable, elliptical diamond stylus is attached to the cantilever and moves within the four separate magnetic gaps which comprise what Grado calls a "flux-bridger" generator system. The generating element creates a flux increase in one gap while decreasing it in another to reduce distortion. According to Grado's literature, this design requires fewer coil turns, resulting in lower cartridge mass and electrical inductance. The cartridge is said to be insensitive to tonearm cable capacitance. The Grado cartridges are hand-built in the U.S.,and each cartridge is tested against Grado's standard for performance.

    Tche Belew (Awaiting Repress)

    The acclaimed and highly sought-after LP by Hailu Mergia and
    the Walias, Tche Belew, an album of instrumentals released in
    1977, is perhaps the most seminal recording released in the
    aftermath of the 1974 revolution. The story of the Walias band is
    a critical chapter in Ethiopian popular music, taking place during
    a period of music industry flux and political complexity in the
    country.


    Hailu Mergia, a keyboardist and arranger diligently working the
    nightclub scene in Addis Ababa, formed the Walias in the early
    1970's with a core group of musicians assembled from prior
    working bands. They played Mergia's funk- and soul-informed
    tunes, while cutting 45rpm singles with various vocalists.


    While the Walias performed at top hotels and played the
    presidential palace twice, their relationship with the Derg regime
    was complex, evidenced by the removal of one song from the
    record by government censors.


    Decades later, Hailu Mergia was surprised to see the album
    fetching more than $4,000 at online auctions (it helped that the
    most popular of all Ethiopian tunes "Musicawi Silt" appeared on
    the record). Now everyone has the chance to listen again-or
    for the first time-to this timeless pillar of Ethiopian popular
    music.

    Whorl

    In April, Simian Mobile Disco trekked out to the Southern California desert, taking with them their new live set up - two modular synths, two sequencers, and a mixer. Over a period of three days, they jammed and rehearsed in the desert, culminating in a one off sold out live show at Pappy & Harriet's, Pioneertown, allowing 900 fans to witness part of the recording process.


    Those sessions, taped under the desert sky, became the basis for their brand new album / live project "Whorl". Now, after completing mixing and mastering, they are pleased to announce that the final studio album will be released through Anti- Records (Tom Waits, Kate Bush).


    SMD's new live system was born out of a desire to challenge themselves - to remove computers altogether, going back to hardware sequencers, and limiting themselves to a suitcase sized rack of modular synth gear each -which both reduces the sound palette but allows much more hands on, real time manipulation - constraining themselves technically, to free themselves up musically.


    Jas, on the recording process - "The recordings we did in the studio while we were writing and rehearsing the new material for Whorl were simply live takes - the system we're using has limited ability to save patterns in the sequencer, but nothing like the flexibility of a computer. Live performance and studio composition are essentially now the same process, rather than the common method of writing a track using the computer, and then working out ways to perform it live. We planned not to slavishly limit ourselves just to this performance - when we came to mixdown the album, we used portions of three sessions - the show itself, an extended jam we did in the desert the day before, and a little of our London studio rehearsal. Future live performances of Whorl are currently being planned, with a full list of tour dates to come - each show will be a live recreation of that recording process, so each time "Whorl" will be slightly different.


    To reflect the organic, analogue aims of the new musical set up, long time SMD art & video collaborators Jack Featherstone & Hans Lo have built a complimentary bespoke hardware system to create the album's visual aesthetic. The system involves feeding live generated digital content through an oscilloscope, filming the oscilloscope's screen, then further processing the image produced. This system will be used in forthcoming videos and SMD's live shows (it was debuted at Sonar this weekend). The cover image is a still grabbed from one of these oscilloscope jams, capturing a moment of flux in performance.


    The accompanying trailer showcases all the elements of the Whorl project, including the desert valley where the rehearsal/jam was recorded, the landscape that inspired the performances, the oscilloscope visuals and the show at Pappy & Harriets. In the coming weeks, further video pieces will explore different elements in more detail. The video is set to a short excerpt of "Tangents".

    Leonard is the second single from Tramp, the new album from Sharon Van Etten.The shimmering sound of Sharon Van Etten's Jagjaguwar debut album, Tramp, both defies and illuminates the unsteadiness of a life in flux. Throughout the 14 months of scattered recording sessions, Van Etten was without a home -- crashing with friends and storing her possessions between varied locations. The only constant in Van Etten's life during this time was spent in Aaron Dessner's garage studio.

    Steppenwolf Live

    In 1970, Steppenwolf hit a major home run with their double live album Steppenwolf Live. The extensive live concert album consisted of their hard rocking 60's hits, popular album tracks, along with artist and fan favorites, performed live during their amazing 1970 tour throughout the United States.


    With Friday Music already being a home to other Steppenwolf masterworks like our Slow Flux/Hour Of The Wolf/Skullduggery deluxe cd set, we are very pleased to announce for the first time in North America, the official 180 Gram Audiophile 2 LP Vinyl release of their much revered concert album Steppenwolf Live. Produced by Gabriel Mekler, the 2 Lp masterwork features the stunning original hard rock line up of John Kay, Goldy McJohn, Nick St. Nicholas, Jerry Edmonton and Larry Byrom. Showcasing a plethora of classic Steppenwolf music on four sides of audiophile vinyl, the tracks are simply some of the finest from their classic 60's-early 70's rock era with smash hits like Born To Be Wild, Magic Carpet Ride, Monster, The Pusher and their hit single from the album Hey Lawdy Mama.


    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Grand Funk Railroad/The Byrds/Johnny Winter), this limited edition Steppenwolf classic release will be presented in the original stunning gatefold cover art, not seen in years here since its first release on Lp.


    John Kay and Steppenwolf continue to be one of the world's finest gifts to the classic rock world. Their powerful songs, their live show, the audience, their musicianship and unparalleled artistry are second to none. Steppenwolf Live proves that now and forever.

    The Ornament

    Nothing gold can stay. Even as he tried to capture it in verse, Robert Frost appreciated the ephemeral nature of beauty. And so does Grant Olsen. Yet a nod to the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet is only one of the reasons the Seattle-based songwriter, best known as half of the duo Arthur & Yu, christened his new project Gold Leaves. An autumnal character imbues these nine originals. Just as foliage buds, changes color, and eventually falls from the branches every season, so too do themes of birth, death and regeneration permeate The Ornament.


    Like most creative types, Olsen's muse is always in transition. The album went through myriad permutations between inception and completion. Although he began work on it nearly four years ago, he scrapped the bulk of those early efforts after a bag containing his laptop and notebooks was stolen. The theft seemed a sign. Perhaps he was writing a second Arthur & Yu album? No. In the space of composing and refining The Ornament, Olsen had married, traveled through Central and South America, seen the birth of new family members, and watched a dear one pass. This transitional period was coupled with observations of his nation in flux, all of which informs the universe of this record. While he hoped to open these subjects up in a manner that would permit a broad range of listeners to relate to the sentiments, he recognized that their inciting intimacy precluded turning these songs into Arthur & Yu tunes.


    Although he wrote all the songs, calling Gold Leaves a solo project is a misnomer. Olsen had a great deal of help making The Ornament. Jason Quever of Papercuts was by his side through most of the recording process, serving as co-producer, engineer, and multiinstrumentalist. Quever helped guide editorial choices, keeping scratch vocals when Olsen wanted to go back into the vocal booth and try again, and laid down the four-in-the-morning cello part that haunts Hanging Window. With a resume that encompasses tutelage under Motown veterans and credits with Beach House and Brightblack Morning Light, Ben McConnell was an ideal percussionist to anchor Olsen's amorphous musical ideas. Thao Ngyuen (Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Thao & Mirah), Amy Blaschke, and members of the Moondoggies all contributed backing vocals.

    Tramp

    The shimmering sound of Tramp both defies and illuminates the unsteadiness of a life in flux. During the 14 months of scattered recording sessions, Sharon Van Etten was without a home, crashing with friends and spreading out her possessions between various locations. The only constant during this time was when Van Etten returned to the garage studio of The Nationals Aaron Dessner.


    How much more incredible then that Tramp sounds so profoundly effortless and singular-minded. Given the space to experiment, Van Etten pushed herself deeper than ever before, testing different approaches and rejecting many. Van Ettens records have been subtle and powerful, at once heartbreaking, luminous, intricate and beautiful. Now lush and triumphant, this is a fresh vision, and Van Etten has realized it with the same grace that made her first two releases so enduring.


    Van Ettens debut, Because I Was In Love, was a sparse set of solo songs, all anchored by her instantly unmistakable voice. The intricate, understated record covered so much emotional ground within its 33 minutes, you couldn't possibly absorb it all at once, nor stay too long in one place along its journey. The following year, Van Etten added a full band to her music. Fans quickly picked favorites, then found their choices changing, often more than once.


    An early fan of Van Etten, Dessner performed epic closer Love More with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. When Van Etten found out, she contacted him, and almost immediately collaborative plans were made. Dessner had just completed work on his studio, and offered up his new space, as well as his insight as a savvy producer. But with both artists near-nonstop touring schedule, recording days had to be spread out, a few days here, a couple weeks there, and a lot of floating and flying in between.


    The resulting album is an assured and strident one, and Tramp showcases an artist in control of her powers, incorporating vivid arrangements and instrumentation into the songwriting. It is a startling collection, filled with as much defiant rock (the precise venom of Serpents), as pious, minimal beauty (the breathtaking Kevins and Joke or a Lie). There are declarative hymns (in the earnest solemnity of All I Can), and remarkably sultry numbers (as in Magic Chords). Tramp features many stupendous guests, as well, including Wye Oaks Jenn Wasner, Julianna Barwick, Beiruts Zach Condon, and Dessner himself.

    Black Beauty, the never-before-released masterpiece by Arthur Lee's legendary psychedelic rock band Love, is available on 180-gram vinyl LP. Recorded in 1973 for the ambitious new label Buffalo Records,
    the album remained unreleased when the company folded. Finally, after 39 years High Moon Records is honored to fulfill Arthur Lee's wish that Black Beauty be heard by music fans worldwide. Black Beauty is making its first-ever official release
    in any format, anywhere! With unparalelled sound and state-of-the-art packaging, critics are hailing Black Beauty as an instant classic. Black Beauty is that rarest of rock artifacts: an unreleased,
    full-length studio album, from an undisputed musical
    genius. Black Beauty is the missing link in a catalog that includes Forever Changes, the classic 1967 Love album the New York Times called "one of the most affecting and beguiling albums of all time. With Black Beauty, Arthur Lee manages to combine searing 70's-rock with gorgeous melodies and stellar songwriting - topped off by his most distinctive, snarling, soulful vocals ever. With its wonderfully eclectic collection of songs, the
    album offers Love fans a rare glimpse into a previously undocumented phase of Arthur Lee's fabled career, while shining a light for new fans to discover the unique genius that is the music of Arthur Lee and Love.



    It's tempting to play what-if with Love's lost labor, Black Beauty, which was recorded in 1973 but shelved for nearly four decades. What if Buffalo Records hadn't gone out of business just prior to the album's release? What if Black Beauty had actually hit stores? What if it hadn't languished in limbo until years after Arthur Lee's death? Would it have stopped Love's slide into obscurity? Would it have signaled a comeback for the man who masterminded Forever Changes, still one of the most complex and compelling artifacts of 1960s Los Angeles? Would his life and career have played out any differently? Would we think of him today as something other than a cult artist, inspired as well as damned by his era?


    It's difficult to imagine any answers to those questions, but it says a lot about Lee that the album even raises these what-ifs and coulda-beens. The very qualities that made him such a fascinating voice-- restlessness, excitability, paranoia, perfectionism, single-mindedness-- may have doomed any commercial prospects more than his notorious fear of travel ever did. After recording Forever Changes, he fired the band and hired new musicians to take their places. Every subsequent album featured a different line-up, although the changes seem based more on personality than on musical direction or ability. Never stagnant, Love was in constant flux, always in a state of development but never quite arriving. So the operative question becomes: Was this the version of Love that Lee had been working toward?


    For Black Beauty-- which is finally seeing release via High Moon Records, although the reissue has been delayed for two years-- Lee assembled guitarist Melvan Whittington, bass player Robert Rozelle, and drummer Joe Blocker. This may be the hardiest and most muscular of Love's post-Changes rosters, with remarkable force and range. With crisp production by Paul Rothchild, best known for his work with the Doors, Love build from a potent blues rock foundation not dissimilar to that of Jimi Hendrix, but without the distracting shamanistic persona and guitar pyrotechnics. "Walk Right In" struts into country rock territory, rewriting Cannon's Jug Stompers 1929 hit into a plea for empathy, and "Beep Beep" attempts a sort of pop reggae, albeit not entirely convincingly.


    On the whole, this particular line-up sounds perfectly rough and unrehearsed, generating a tense energy on "Skid" and "Stay Away" even as they suggest a band still figuring out exactly what they can do together. It's a strong album, but it's not another Forever Changes, whose accomplishments in retrospect were unrepeatable, or even another Four Sail. On the other hand, Lee wasn't aiming to craft something in that vein. Still, especially considering the professional setbacks he had faced in the years leading up to Black Beauty-- which includes being dropped by Elektra and shuffling through a series of independent labels-- Lee sounds engaged and invigorated, forgoing the bitterness that had rankled the band for a slightly more hopeful outlook. On stand-out "Can't Find It", he sings, "Every time I cry my heart out, and every time I play the fool, but there's gotta be something in this lonely world for me." The confession is all the more bittersweet for being capped with the line, "but I can't find it without you." It's ostensibly a love song, but could just as easily be addressed to his audience. His creative satisfaction relies on having a listener to complete the circuit, which makes this album's long shelf life all the sadder.
