Mental Floss For The GlobeImport
At the end of the 80's -in the central part of Holland- a one-off jam session by local musicians led to the birth of an influential and groundbreaking group: The Urban Dance Squad, led by MC/Singer Rudeboy, who was backed by a traditional rockband line-up plus DJ DNA, they pioneered the Rock-meets-Rap movement in Holland and abroad. Not fitting in either one of those categories, they singlehandedly created their own mix of genres: Rocking with the toughest while maintaining street credibility.
On the heals of their 1989 debut Mental Floss for the Globe they toured on both sides of the Atlantic and gained praise by fellow musicians Rage Against The Machine and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. 'Deeper Shade of Soul' proved a song with international hit-appeal and several tracks off the album turned up in Hollywood movies.
20 years after release, this LP was voted Most Important Dutch Album by Dutch OOR Magazine. Definitely worthy of a remastered version, we present the long overdue audiophile pressing in a gatefold sleeve with a lyric sheet to rap-a-long while headbanging to 'Fast Lane', 'No Kid', 'Deeper Shade of Soul' to name a few.

RelapseAnticipation for Eminem's new studio album Relapse has been building since the fall, when the hip hop superstar first announced the album title and debuted the freestyle, I'm Having A Relapse, during an interview on his Shade 45 satellite radio station. The release of Crack A Bottle from Eminem, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent brought that anticipation to a head. The track soared to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (Eminem's second #1 after 2002's Lose Yourself) and set a Nielsen SoundScan record for opening week download sales. Crack A Bottle will be included as an album track on Relapse.
With the announcement of the release date for Relapse also comes confirmation of something that had been rumored in recent weeks: Eminem is already working on a follow-up album, Relapse 2, that fans can expect in the second half of 2009. A lot of people were expecting Relapse to drop last year, explains Eminem. I was one of them. Then Dre and I went back in the studio in September for a few days, and that turned into six months. We were on such a roll; we wound up with a ton of new music produced by Dre. Putting out Relapse 2 will let everyone get all of the best stuff.1. Dr. West (Skit)

Round About Midnight (Awaiting Repress)Hipness Personified: Davis Columbia Records Debut Highlights His Diverse Palette and Famed Quintet
Lifelike Sonics: Mobile Fidelity Presents This Standard with a Dynamic Sound That Allows You to Picture Davis Mouth as He Blows Harmon-Muted Trumpet
Blowing Cool and Hot Jazz: Quintet Plays Reflective Ballads, Pop Standards, and Fervent Bop on One of Eras Only Complete Start-to-Finish Full-Length LPs
Sketches of Spain, Milestones, Kind of Blue, Four & More, and In a Silent Way Also Available from Mobile Fidelity
Miles Davis first album for Columbia, Round About Midnight, represents both the beginning of a three-plus-decade relationship with the famed label as well as the start of an extended collaboration with then-unknown saxophonist John Coltrane. As one of the eras only complete start-to-finish full-length LPs, the 1957 set stands as a hard-bop benchmarka summation of the styles that came before its creation, an immersion into the periods cutting-edge strains, and a hint of the rivoluse modalism that would follow.
Part of Mobile Fidelitys Miles Davis catalog restoration series, Round About Midnight now resonates with a physical palpability and emotional heft never before experienced. Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, this unsurpassed 180g LP edition traces the individual paths each musician takes in contributing to the whole, whether its pianist Red Garlands left hand spinning actinoid chords or Coltrane infusing a tune with harmony-defying fills that suggest arabesque patterns. Recorded at three separate sessions, the music has never sounded so cohesive, immediate, or involving.
Historically, few jazz records claim the significance boasted by Round About Midnight. The albums creationand the assembly of Davis quintet, which also includes Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jonesstems from the headliners rousing rendition of the title-inspired track, Round Midnight, a Thelonious Monk standard, at the 1955 Newport Jazz Festival. Stunning the audience with an interpretation that witnessed him personalize the composition with a brooding tone made possible via employment of his soon-to-be-trademark Harmon mute, Davis redefined perspective and possibility, taking ownership of the ballad as his own, and further improving upon its reach in the studio. It wasnt the composers only surprise.
'Round About Midnight thrives due to diversity and consistency, a rare combination epitomized by the first-rate selection and astonishing performance of pensive ballads, bebop classics, pop standards, and folk pieces. Witness the counterpoint exchanges during Ah-Leu-Cha and its Dixieland shades. Soak up the progressive drama and swinging tempos on All of You and Bye Bye Blackbird. Delight in the mÉlange of latticed textures and schematic moods throughout the sequence, here presented in gorgeous fidelity, zeroing in on Davis warm, plush, rich, and close-up trumpet timbres and how, by playing his instrument right near the microphone, he infuses the arrangements with the sort of daring intimacy embraced by two lovers.
Tension, suggestiveness, calm, mystery, nostalgia: All here. Gather now, Round About Midnight. Slip on a pair of shades, draw the curtains, slouch into a chair, and light a cigarette. This is Miles and Co. at their best. Hipness personified.

KIN (Awaiting Repress)1st full length release from the Atlanta-based sisters.
We have a very colorful family history," explains lead singer/guitarist Rebecca, 23, who also plays mandolin and violin. "There were a lot of creative, hot-headed, and intelligent branches that went against the grain in our family tree. Our paternal grandfather suffered from schizophrenia, while our great,
great, great, great grandfather, Larkin Poe, was a Civil War wagon driver turned historian and a distant cousin to Edgar Allen Poe. Growing up with their
crazy stories definitely shaded our perception of normal. As artists, I think some of those innate eccentricities, passed down from generation to
generation, have been even further exaggerated in us!" Megan, 25, who contributes lapsteel and dobro to the line-up, chimes in, "As sisters, we just
wanted to pick a band name that had familial significance, so we decided to tip a nod to our ancestors and take on the name Larkin Poe."
The Atlanta-based sisters celebrate that unique genealogy and their own eccentricities with their debut full-length album, Kin, on RH Music, produced by
Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Lana Del Rey) in Los Angeles and Damien Lewis (Rihanna, Rita Ora) in Atlanta.
After years of being fiercely independent (i.e., they self-released five EPs and toured for three years without label support), they decided to sign with RH
Music. We signed with RH Music because they believe in our authenticity. They understand that we make music for no other reason than our need to
make music and want to support that need, explains Megan. They see our passion! Others are clearly taking note of this passion as well, including Elvis
Costello and Kristian Bush (of Sugarland). Both legends have taken the sisters out on the road to serve both as opening bands and backing bands; with
Elvis Costello calling them gifted instrumentalists, while Bush praises the poetry they make with their strings, words, and voices.
With years of domestic and international touring under their belts, and a large and loyal fan base already in place, the sisters want their fans to know that
Kin is truly their coming of age project. This is by far the most genuine piece of work we've ever released as a band, says Rebecca. It's our story,
written in our way, played and sung by us. We call it roots-rock'n'soul. It's our whole heart and soul mashed up into a musical form.1. Jailbreak

Final All-Acoustic Outing from Davis' Classic Second Quintet
Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Record's Tonal Shadings, Gradations, and Textures Come Alive
Confident 1967 Effort Steeped in Inquisitive Interplay and Subconscious Impressionism
Nefertiti will always be known as the final all-acoustic record made by Miles Davis' classic second quintet. A thematic bookend to the preceding Sorcerer, the 1967 set shares much in common with its equally nuanced predecessor yet deviates by way of its focus on rhythm and exploratory soundscapes. The low-key music blooms with colorful bouquets of shadings, gradations, and overtones that on Mobile Fidelity's analog edition bring listeners to closer to the creative passions than ever before.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g 45RPM vinyl at RTI, this collectable audiophile version of Nefertiti joins the ranks of eleven other essential Davis records given supreme sonic and packaging treatment by Mobile Fidelity. Afforded supreme dynamics and full-range extension, cyclical melodies resonate with a moody character and ambience normally only heard in small jazz clubs. Instrumental pitch, too, is spot-on accurate, a measuring stick for how all acoustic-based passages should be experienced.
As he does on Sorcerer, Davis again cedes all compositional duties to his all-star band mates and focuses on his trumpet. Familiar albeit slightly dissonant, rooted in hard bop yet signaling the onset of fusion, the songs are grounded in inquisitive interplay and subconscious impressionism. Nefertiti reveals fresh devices and new directions every time you visit its cerebral worlds. And while each musician is given ample room to solo, the effort stands as an example of groupthink in that no individual stands out or shows off. The groundbreaking title track-during which the horn section recurrently repeats the melody as drummer Tony Williams and bassist Ron Carter improvise, thus inverting the conventional sense of a rhythm section-shines as a textbook example of such chemistry and unity.
Throughout, the players' confidence, and Davis' trust in them, stamps every piece with rare self-assurance and authoritativeness. In particular, Williams and Carter bring rhythms to the forefront as the horns hypnotize and Herbie Hancock's piano points in several different directions like a compass gone crazy. Responsible for "Madness" and "Riot," Hancock contributes brief bursts of speed and slight aggression, but on a record on which complexity and introspection take precedent over blowing hot, the aural steam ultimately becomes opportunity for burrowing into unpredictable turns and deep grooves.
Indeed, the thrilling sense of interplay and inclination of the ensemble to keep searching, moving forward in a concerted manner to uncover then-unheard jazz discoveries, marks Nefertiti as one of Davis' quintessential efforts. For historians, it's the signpost to the pioneering fusion the leader would begin to pursue with greater commitment on the record's follow-up, Miles in the Sky. For the rest of us, the album is music and music-making at its intriguing best.
