    Frozen: The Songs

    Songs from the 2013 Disney animated film, Frozen.


    Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, Frozen is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

    Frozen Throne

    Following the summer release of his Feel The Heat EP, Groundislava is set to release his ten song concept LP and third studio album, Frozen Throne. Part of the LA-based collective and record label known as WEDIDIT, the 24 year old self-described cyberpunk producer has taken
    influence from 80s culture, TV, technology, sci-fi and video games and transformed it into a unique blend of minimal techno, house, R&B, trance and pop,
    that is equal parts nostalgia and shiny futurism.

    Frozen Letter


    LP Pressed To 120 Gram Red Translucent Vinyl


    As their name implies, when Spider Bags hook into you,
    it's hard to shake the hold. --PITCHFORK


    Formed in 2005, Chapel Hill, North Carolina's Spider Bags were largely a
    revolving cast, with only Dan McGee (guitars, vocals) persevering through
    the various incarnations of the band. But during the 2011 recording of Shake
    My Head, the current lineup consisting of Steve Oliva (bass) and Rock Forbes
    (drums) was finally solidified. Building upon the foundation laid down by
    its predecessor, Frozen Letter rocks with the clairvoyance of three musicians
    who have spent a lot of time recording and touring together over the last few
    years. "When we started this record, we weren't even thinking about it being
    released. We just did it to have fun and keep moving forward," says Forbes.
    This approach allowed the band to push itself further out into the
    psychedelic frontier than ever before, aided by engineer/producer Wesley
    Wolfe. Recorded mostly live over the course of a few days, there's an
    exhilarating urgency to the record, as heard in riff-driven rockers like "Back
    With You Again in the World" and "Chem Trails." The band brings the
    tempo down a notch for "Coffin Car," which finds them mining an ominous
    morbidity over one of their prettier chord patterns. "We Got Problems"
    comes on like a true acid trip, alternating between utter terror and unfettered
    joy. Featuring a heavy and repetitive pattern, a slew of effected guitars, and
    searing guest leads from Superchunk's Mac McCaughan, the song
    encapsulates an entire Spider Bags epoch in under six minutes. Frozen Letter is
    the band's fourth full-length record overall and first for Merge Records.

    Lights Out

    The new Bishop Allen record, Lights Out, is here at last. Here's what went into it: ten years, three full-lengths, twelve EPs, thousands of shows, a move out of Brooklyn, a new home in the wooly wilds of Kingston, NY, time off to score the films Bully and Mutual Friends, as well as an Anderson Cooper 360 special, months of demos, drum tracking in a sweat-lodge attic studio during a July heat wave, a wet Fall arranging guitars, bass, and synths in a now-chilly attic studio, the coldest December on record spent mixing, a close call with a frozen pipe and flooded hard drives, and a photo found on a friend's refrigerator.

    Library Catalog Music Series: Music For Moving In Slow Motion

    Music for Moving in Slow Motion is about the slowing, halting, and reversing of the directional flow of linear time. It is about the significance of the possibly infinite space that exists between any two instants. It is about experiencing symmetrical time. At some moments the proverbial arrow for a single event is subtly (or not so subtly) manipulated, while at others, multiple events are frozen and superimposed onto each other, creating a hyper-simultaneity out of what was once sequence, thereby eliminating it. Time is treated as space, as an elastic solid that can be twisted and moved in any direction, and there is an attempt to find the smallest temporal unit, if it exists at all. Alfred Brown is a composer and audio engineer living in Buffalo, NY.

    We Were Wonderers

    Williams Shift is a new project from Matthew Stone (Soporus, Saxon Shore) and Stephen Roessner (Saxon Shore, Small Signals). We Were Wonderers was recorded in various home studios, produced and mixed by Grammy award winning producer Roessner in conjunction with Stone, and features the vocalist Jill Purdy. Williams Shift comes to life as an outgrowth of the poppiest elements incorporated in songs recorded as members of the instrumental band Saxon Shore combined with the concept of the "Williams Shift" where defenders would align themselves to better field naturally pulled hits from Boston slugger Ted Williams. The band blends soaring synth pop influences with an ever-expanding and spiraling Williams mythology and weight of the Cosmos. Captivated by theories of human cryonic suspension and the cagey details post- Williams mortem, the band embraces an actively dreaming suspended head and an alternate future of Williams' awakening. His frozen head orbits the earth on a satellite with other cryonically frozen beings, a tragic Greek chorus echoing Williams' thoughts through Brian Wilson-esque (musician, not reliever) melodies. This is an ode to melody, love lost, remembrance, baseball, Ted Williams' legacy, and the universe with a hefty dose of artistic license and imagination and the resulting existential and philosophical ramifications. We Were Wonderers was predominantly conceived as a studio side-project, but Stone and Roessner have assembled a live band that is currently practicing and preparing Williams Shift tracks for live shows later in 2015. We Were Wonderers is available on both cd and 2xLP. The 2xLP features a 4th side etching from John Ringhofer (Halfhanded Cloud) representing some of the album's thematic elements. The vinyl is pressed on blue vinyl with white marble veins and white vinyl with blue marble veinsand presented in a gatefold jacket. Additionally, there is a limited edition cassette featuring the instrumental version of We Were Wonderers and released in conjunction with our good friends at Flannelgraph Records in Bloomington, IN.

    Yonder Is The Clock

    The Felice Brothers (Simone, Ian, and James) and their long time friends and band mates Greg Farley and Christmas Clapton, come to us from the Catskill Mountains, where a homegrown sound has been working its way through the bloodlines for generations. Titled with a phrase drawn from the pages of Mark Twain, Yonder Is The Clock is a nod to all of the American ghosts that lend their narrative and characters to the Felice BrothersÆ forthcoming release. Their studio was built from the remains of an abandoned chicken coop and it was there over the summer and fall of 2008 that they wrote and recorded this new collection of songs. Yonder Is The Clock is teaming with tales of love, death, betrayal, baseball, train stations, phantoms, pandemics, jail cells, rolling rivers and frozen winter nights. This is music that hasnÆt lost sight of the history of the land from which it came, and that quality alone makes The Felice Brothers the next great American band.

    Woman To Woman

    I was sitting in a hotel room in Spearfish, SD learning to play a Townes Van Zandt tune called Loretta, and as I was singing the words, I started to get angry, says Esme Patterson on the inspiration behind her new album 'Woman to Woman.' I started thinking how one-sided and aubjective a lot of 'love songs' are, and how a lot of women immortalized in songs might tell a different side of the story if anyone ever asked.


    That realization inspired Patterson to write an album of response songs that aims to give voice to seven women from popular music: Jolene (Dolly Parton), Alison (Elvis Costello), Loretta (Townes Van Zandt), Caroline (The Beach Boys), Eleanor Rigby (The Beatles), Evangeline (The Band), and Irene (Leadbelly).


    They are archetypes from songs, frozen forever in black and white, she says. I did my best to add some color and give them some humanity.


    Well known for her work as a vocalist for Denver, CO's Paper Bird, Patterson also appeared on Anais Mitchell's 'Hadestown,' has performed on both Letterman and Leno as a backup singer for Tennis, and has collaborated with artists like Shakey Graves, Nathaniel Rateliff, Nick Jaina, and Reed Foehl. 'Woman to Woman' is her second solo release.

    Still Life

    Dawn Golden is the work of Los Angeles-based producer Dexter Tortoriello. He gained exposure in 2010 when his other (much more serene) project, Houses began getting wide spread attention. Dawn Golden is it's opposite. Influenced by everything from doom metal bands like Neurosis to avant noise artists such as Xiu Xiu, the songs pound with a calm, but dire urgency. The project began in Tortoriello's bedroom as an experiment in different recording techniques, and quickly escalated as vocals were added and ideas rounded out. Dawn Golden released his first EP, Blow, in April 2011. The effort, which featured standouts like "Blacks" and "White Sun," received critical acclaim from NPR and Pitchfork. Post-Blow, Tortoriello started recording albums for both Dawn Golden and Houses, releasing Houses' A Quiet Darkness in May 2013. During this period, he continued working on the songs for what would become Dawn Golden's debut LP, Still Life. The album was recorded over the last three years at the Mad Decent studios in Los Angeles.


    Still Life is built around stream-of-conscious craft that explores the doleful voids of addiction, love, and death. Led by its first single "All I Want," Still Life gains its stark emotional perspective through some of the most unique production you're likely to hear this year. There's heavy exploration of sonic texture, and Tortoriello uses frozen cut-ups and creative vocal editing to flip a traditionally-futuristic sound into something that oozes feeling.

    The Revenant Soundtrack

    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Matte Tip-On Gatefold Jacket


    Limited Edition Of 3000 On Pearlescent Colored Vinyl


    Following the success of 2014's Birdman (Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director), director Alejandro G. Iñárritu pushes the limits of film making with the survival epic The Revenant. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, Wolf of Wall Street), Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises) and shot in the frozen Canadian wilderness with only natural lighting, The Revenant is a story of loss, revenge and resilience in the face of impossible odds against the furies of man and nature itself. The film is heavily favored to be a critical darling as awards season gets under way. Director Iñárritu has chosen to forgo almost all dialogue in favor of a gorgeous soundscape and a sweeping score. A film of this magnitude deserves a composer who understands creative artistry and unbridled passion. Japanese master and Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto (Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, The Last Emperor) fits the bill perfectly. Along with fellow Yellow Magic Orchestra member and frequent collaborator Alva Noto, Sakamoto has created a gripping soundtrack that is sure to be a treat for the winter crowds. Bryce Dessner (writer for Kronos Quartet and the LA Phil) also supplies additional music.


    This is a limited pressing of 3,000 copies on pearlescent colored vinyl (one translescent blue, one cloud white).

    City Music

    City Music is an airplane descending over frozen lakes into Chicago. City Music is riding the Q Train out to Coney Island to smell the ocean and a morning in Philadelphia where great cranes reconfigure the buildings like an endless puzzle. City Music is also the new album by Kevin Morby.


    Full of listless wanderlust, it's a collection inspired by and devoted to the metropolitan experience across America and beyond by a songwriter cast from his own mold. It is a collection crafted using the other side of its creator's brain, the jumping off point perhaps best once again encapsulated by an image. Here, Lou Reed and Patti Smith stare out at the listener, explains Morby.


    City Music sees Morby joined once again by cohorts Megan Duffy (guitar) and Justin Sullivan (drums). Here the vocals were recorded at night, in darkness, overlooking a Pacific Ocean illuminated only by the stars, the wash and whisper of the ebbing tidal a distant soundtrack. The record was completed with Richard Swift in Oregon (producer of Foxygen, sometime member of The Black Keys). Here the album gives voice to all those cities speaking the same universal language of chaos and commerce and culture.

    Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win

    This will be 50s first release after negotiating his independence from Interscope Records. His last release 4 years ago, BEFORE I SELF DESTRUCT
    leaked in its entirety over a month before street date. 50 Cent has sold over 30 million records to date and looks forward to continued success
    independently.


    50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, investor and actor from Queens, New York. He rose to fame with the
    release of his 2003 album Get Rich or Die Tryin', which has sold more than 8 million copies. The Grammy Award winner has sold more than 30 million
    albums worldwide and has been awarded numerous accolades including 13 Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, three American Music
    Awards and four BET Awards, to name a few. He was ranked as the #1 rap artist and most successful Hot 100 Artist of the 2000s by Billboard Magazine,
    as well as that decade's sixth-best artist and fourth top male artists of that decade. His fifth studio album, Animal Ambition, will be released in summer
    2014.


    What began as music chart dominance for the rap music phenomenon quickly transformed to success in corporate America as a multi-tiered business
    mogul to be reckoned with. 50 Cent has also carved out a successful and acclaimed career as an actor, appearing in more than 21 films including Frozen
    Ground with Nicolas Cage and John Cusack, The Tomb starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and he recently wrapped filming on
    The Prince with Bruce Willis and John Cusack. He is currently serving as executive producer and has a reoccurring role on the highly anticipated series
    POWER set to air on Starz in 2014. Recognized as one of the most talented and prolific music artists of his time, 50 Cent has managed to leverage his
    star power into record breaking brand extensions encompassing a broad spectrum of businesses including artist management, film production, footwear
    and apparel, fragrance, video games, publishing, headphones and health drinks and supplements.

    Never Really Been Into It

    The legacy of North Carolina's Ashrae Fax seems destined to be
    appreciated in retrospect, in no small part given to the
    tremendous power of the group's 2003 release Static Crash!,
    reissued twice from its initial CD-R run before appearing on
    Mexican Summer last year. The Goth/ethereal duo of vocalist
    RenÉe Mendoza and producer/guitarist Alex Chesney had built a
    long, strange and mostly undocumented legacy prior to that
    release, and Never Really Been Into It extends the tale back even
    further: ten songs, sketched out in the late '90s, most of which
    were never completed and remained unheard until now. "This
    would've been our first full-length," reflects vocalist RenÉe
    Mendoza, "if we had any idea what we were doing [back then]."


    Rescued from a shoebox of ephemera from the band's earliest
    days, when Mendoza and guitarist Alex Chesney drifted out of
    high school and into the uncertainties of early adulthood, these
    songs were the product of a band whose members had nothing
    but time and ambition, influence and desire to transcend their
    humble beginnings. Pieced together and re-recorded over a five-month period in 2013 by RenÉe Mendoza in her home studio,
    from mere stems and forgotten takes preserved on decades-old
    minidisc recordings, the songs on Never Really Been Into It reflect
    disquiet, uncertainty, hope and numbing, absolute beauty, along
    teenage obsessions with The Cocteau Twins, The Cure, and
    perhaps the Projekt Records roster, refracted through the lens of
    latter-day experience - pristine musicianship, gorgeous vocals,
    cryogenically frozen until now. Had these songs been properly
    released when initially conceived, Ashrae Fax would have no
    doubt found themselves in the midst of the upswell of ethereal
    pop bands of the '90s (The Underflowers, Ultracherry Violet, The
    Curtain Society). As such, their moment keeps happening, and

    The Year The Sun Died

    Reactivated legendary Seattle metal band, Sanctuary, have wrapped up the recording of their new album, The Year The Sun Died. Recorded in Seattle at Soundhouse Studios with Zeuss (Whitechapel, Hatebreed), the album will feature 11 tracks and a bonus track, a cover of the Doors classic, Waiting for the Sun.


    Comments singer, Warrel Dane:


    Now that hell has officially frozen over and the pigs have flown I can proudly say The Year The Sun Died is finished. The record that nobody thought would ever get here has come in kicking ... and yes there is screaming!


    Working with Zeuss (aka the commander) was great. He really pushed us all to be better. This is a very modern sounding record with roots still firmly planted in old school six string metal and I gotta give him creds for that.


    Sanctuary was formed in Seattle in 1985 and released two studio albums on Epic Records, Refuge Denied in 1987 and Into the Mirror Black in 1989. They toured the world with the likes of Megadeth, Warlock, Fates Warning, Death Angel and many more. In 1992, the band officially disbanded with singer Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard forming the critically acclaimed group, Nevermore. Sanctuary announced in 2010 that they would be reuniting and played metal festivals in both Europe and the US with the original line up save for guitarist Sean Blosl. Former Forced Entry guitarist, Brad Hull has stepped into to fill his shoes as a permanent touring and recording member.

    Slowmotionary

    Ethan Gruska's solo debut, the luminous Slowmotionary, embraces a range of sounds and styles, with influences from jazz and folk to ambient and alternative, Slowmotionary integrates everything into a whole that is original, idiosyncratic and embraces its own imperfections. I really tried to let that humanity in and to not only leave these quirky blemishes in, but to highlight them, says Gruska. I didn't want perfect. I wanted true. I wanted honest. He made room for a little serendipity in his creative process, sensing that too calculated an approach would diminish the impact of the music. That spontaneity provided a wonderful counterpoint to his thoughtful and revealing lyrics. Showcasing Gruska's hushed vocals and subtle arrangements, these songs resonate with the intimacy of an internal monologue, as though we're sharing in his darkest worries.


    The goal was to have it be like a sound collage that I had made. It was really exploratory, with a lot of sampling and reversing-techniques I had tried in the past but had never gotten to fully explore. The results are beautifully minimalist: songs as whispered confidences, with what Gruska calls an arctic sound, windswept and cold, befitting lyrics that depict moments frozen in time. I didn't want to hide behind anything. That's why it's produced and arranged the way it is. It's very barren at certain moments. These songs slow down time for me, which is why I called it Slowmotionary. I needed to put myself out there musically and lyrically.


    And that meant not making it perfect. It meant making these songs sound like the results from something other than a studio. It meant conveying the sense of music that is being written at the same moment you hear it. A lot of the record is mysterious, even to me. It's not something you always tap your foot to. You're listening to my thought process.

    Good Mood Fool

    In the winter Luke Temple moved into a cottage, a small one, in upstate New York. The snow fell quietly. He had frozen blueberries and bread and eggs and Coors Original. He sang and drank and played and drank and ate and shoveled snow and when the snow melted and the roads cleared he had his friends. Eliot Kirmsky (Glass Ghost) and Mike Johnson (Dirty Projectors) dug into Luke's hut and together they built a fire. Luke called it Good Mood Fool.


    Originally from Cape Anne, Massachusetts, Luke moved to the North West, sleeping rough in the woods,
    working in a candy store and as a janitor at a suburban mall. While in Seattle Luke met some people headed down the coast. All of his aimlessness lasted a year and half before Luke had had enough. He enrolled in school of the Museum of Fine Arts and spent five years painting portraits, after which Luke moved to New York and worked as a muralist and plasterer. As painting drifted from the foreground little songs started to emerge. He tried them out at the famous Sidewalk CafÉ Monday open mic and the people there liked it.


    After recording two critically acclaimed albums for Mill Pond, to little commercial reception, Luke was at the point of quitting a career in music. In 2008, feeling free in his new state, he made what would become the first Here We Go Magic album, forming the band and releasing the self-titled debut in 2009. Positive critical and commercial response to the record kept Luke busy with Here We Go Magic through touring and recording two more full lengths and an EP. Since Here We Go Magic's 2012 release, A Different Ship, Luke has returned to his original solo ideas.


    In a sense Good Mood Fool is an extension of the first self-titled Here We Go Magic record. It was recorded with the same sense of freedom and joy. The meat of the record finds Luke taking a sharp turn in order to keep himself interested. First single Katie is a prime slice of mid-80s intelligent pop, almost So-era Peter Gabriel in its rhythms and sound. Meanwhile, Florida is a blue-eyed soul hit, a lazy sunny evening of summer beauty. Good Mood Fool draws from myriad influences, from the hushed soulful wail of Curtis Mayfield to the dense
    harmonies of Gill Evans and the Bulgarian Women's Choir. It is meant to be clear in production and in content, hiding nothing.

    Dunes

    Over the past three years,the Santa Barbarian comrades that make up Gardens &Villa -Chris Lynch,Adam
    Rasmussen, Levi Hayden, Shane McKillop, and Dusty Ineman - went from playing local bills to being
    veterans of the road.After releasing their self-titled debut on Secretly Canadian in 2011, they pushed their
    van's odometer into the six-digit range, zigzagging North America and Europe with over 350 shows in just 2
    years. Gardens & Villa emerged a wiser, crystallized version of themselves.


    Those experiences planted the seeds for the band's new batch of cohesive, personal, and beautifully layered
    pop songs - homegrown in the confines of the band's beach side practice space. When it came time to
    record, they searched out acclaimed producer Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, DFA Records, LCD
    Soundsystem, Hercules & Love Affair) and these five surf-town natives found themselves traveling to the
    unlikely locale of Benton Harbor, MI (pop. 10,040) in January. There they landed at the Key Club, located
    deep in the recesses of a converted locksmith's building where they would record what would become their
    second full-length, Dunes.


    Gardens &Villa burrowed into the Key Club's retro-themed studio and living space, only leaving the facility
    five times over the next month. The disconnect between Santa Barbara's familiar sunny beaches and
    Michigan's snow-covered lake shore led to the group's creative unraveling in the studio. The band lost track
    of the hours, days, and weeks as blinking analog machines captured the intense journey. In the process,
    Dunes was poured through Sly Stone's original custom-built Flickinger recording console.


    With just a week left before deadline, Gardens & Villa sought a brief refuge from the studio where their
    progress had stalled. They went on a trip,traversing winding roads past frozen tundra and barren trees and
    into the wilderness of the nearby state park's tall dunes. The group climbed to the top and collapsed into a
    combination of sand and snow.Simultaneously reminded of home as well as their distance from it,their jaws
    dropped as they turned to see Lake Michigan's majestic and surreal expanse stretching toward the horizon.


    Supported by Goldsworthy's guidance, the band went back to the studio and ultimately emerged with a
    record beaming with dystopian energy, subconscious lyrics, and uncompromising sincerity. Lynch has
    seamlessly integrated his bansuri flutes and Rasmussen has fleshed out his looming synths alongside shades
    of '80s cult films soundscapes that lurk just underneath the songs in an unnoticeable-yet-omnipresent
    fashion.Like the awe-inspiring clarity of sitting atop Michigan's dunes,the band's forthcoming record shares
    a clear and evocative vision of where Gardens & Villa's members have traveled, what they've learned, and
    what lies ahead.

    Sitcom Afterlife


    Their songs are full of rich, rural details: frozen lakes, swaying
    trees, highway lights glowing in the deep night. - Rolling Stone


    Milia's lyrics roll like rich literature and are just as visually
    descriptive. - All Music Guide


    As a band steeped in the rose tint of the early 90's, the
    references to a collective history we all hold fondly are intrinsic to
    Frontier Ruckus' songcraft. The band embarked upon a trilogy of
    records surrounding these themes of place: the rust of a
    Midwestern suburbia anywhere and the edifice of those oft
    crumbling surroundings baked with the deeply passionate
    memories they evoke. The Orion Songbook (2008), Deadmalls &
    Nightfalls (2010), and Eternity of Dimming (2013) served as a trinity
    of sorts to the gravity of those View-Master cartridge visions. In
    listening one clicks thru song-slides of Matthew Milia's densely
    worded sermons, if you will, belted and cooed with a timbre that is
    full and fragile all at once, held together with netting from long-time
    friend David Jones' angular banjo throes, and fleshed out by a
    thick quasi-orchestra of brass, chord organ, and saw by Zachary
    Nichols. Long-time vocalist Anna Burch returns to touring with
    the band, providing a honey-sweet gelatin that firmly bases yet
    sets each song into a full-throated fire.


    Time has settled things, the fossils of those first records remain,
    but a new rolling house has been built upon it by the band, as if
    pulled from show to show, tour stop to tour stop. Milia and
    company aren't stopping. There's some place to be. Now 6 years
    on from their first full length, lauds from NPR, Paste, Rolling Stone,
    and Daytrotter in the rear-view, and remnants of tours to Europe
    and each corner of these United States scattered in fanny-packs
    and hollow-body guitar cases, Sitcom Afterlife speaks with a more compact and frontal
    approach. In these new songs Frontier Ruckus isn't retreading
    those two-lane highways they've came on, but leaning forward -
    there's a structured forward motion to this collection, a sense of
    urgency toward the present, and a brevity that speaks of
    immediate passion - not disregarding that lived-in past but also
    not forlornly dragging it behind this shiny-new Airstream trailer that
    is Sitcom Afterlife.

    Father of the Delta Blues: The Complete 1965 Sessions (Pure Pleasure)

    House's recording session ran over a few days and saw the studio set up like a small club with an invited audience. I remember John (Hammond) running around crazed, as was Son's manager, Dick Waterman (a man to whom Son owed everything). Al Wilson of Canned Heat was sat alongside Son, and once the recording started occasionally played harp and guitar. He appeared to have a decidedly calming influence on House, who throughout would turn to him to discuss various things. Once things had begun Son was quite nervous but ever so slowly, as time wore on, the emotional intensity of his performance transported one back to the Mississippi Delta c. 1930 when Son, as a young man, ruled the roost along with Delta legend Charlie Patton. And today, many years later, the images are frozen pieces of time, forever stored in my memory.



    Excerpt from a piece by Lawrence Cohn who was present at the session.



    Musicians:



    • Son House (vocal, steel-guitar)

    • Al Wilson (guitar, harmonica)




    Recording: April 1965 at Columbia's studios, New York City

    Production: John Hammond and Frank Driggs




    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.

    Bad Blood

    US Version Includes Three Bonus Tracks


    Bad Blood, the full-length debut from Bastilleis released by Virgin Records. Bastille is the top-selling debut act of 2013 in the U.K., where Bad Blood entered the albums chart at No. 1 earlier this year and has remained in the Top 20 ever since.


    The U.S. version of the album will include three bonus tracks - "The Silence," "Weight of Living, PT. I" and "Laughter Lines."


    Bastille will made its U.S. television debut on "Conan" July 24. The U.K. band played a sold-out show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and will return to the States in the fall of 2013 for its first North American tour.


    Haunt, Bastille's four-song EP debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart after being released digitally. "Pompeii," the lead single, is already Top 20 at Modern Rock, and has been added by numerous stations, including KROQ-Los Angeles, 98/7-Los Angeles, Live 105-San Francisco, Q877-Chicago, KTCL-Denver, WRFF-Philadelphia, KTBZ-Houston, DC101-Washington DC and SiriusXM's Alt Nation. The "Pompeii" video has more than 30 million views.


    Dan Smith, the founder of Bastille, envisioned the "Pompeii" clip as the novel I Am Legend if it were shot by the director of Drive, which hints at how inextricably intertwined music, film and literature are in his creative process. Rounding out Bastille's lineup are Will Farquarson, Kyle Simmons and Chris "Woody" Wood. The four musicians have been playing and touring together for more than two years and while each has his main role in Bastille, they effortlessly trade places on vocals, keyboards and percussion. The band's spring 2013 U.K. headline tour sold out immediately, with all 44,000 tickets gone in a day, and they are playing major festivals in the U.K, Europe and Japan this summer. Bastille's performance of "Pompeii" at Glastonbury can be seen here.


    While Bad Blood sounds lush, it was actually recorded in a tiny room on limited equipment - apart from a day spent recording strings in the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Smith, working with producer Mark Crew, aimed to approach each song differently.


    "I wanted each to be its own story with its own atmosphere which brings in different sounds and elements of production, incorporating aspects of the different genres and styles that I love: hip hop, indie, pop and folk," he explains. "Film soundtracks can be broad and varied, but tied together by the film itself. I hope the album will be something like that, but held together by my voice and the songwriting, each song a scene or part of a bigger picture."


    "Pompeii" is an epic in miniature, a conversation between two charred bodies, frozen in time, caught in the ash that engulfed the Roman city of sin while songs like the title track and "Things We Lost in Fire" touch on the changing dynamics of relationships. "'Bad Blood' is an album crafted in one of modern pop's greatest refineries," observed Artrocker, awarding it five stars, while BBC Music said, "Bastille really deliver." Q named "Overjoyed" as "Track of the Day," noting, "[Bastille's] bewitching mixture of softly delivered vocals and glitchy tracks creates an impressive atmosphere."
