    In Spades

    "Cleromancy" isn't a word one normally finds in rock lyrics. Then again, In Spades - the forthcoming album by The Afghan Whigs, from which the new song "Oriole" hails - is defined only by its own mystical inner logic. The term means to divine, in a supernatural manner, a prediction of destiny from the random casting of lots: the throwing of dice, picking a card from a deck. From its evocative cover art to the troubled spirits haunting its halls, In Spades casts a spell that challenges the listener to unpack its dark metaphors and spectral imagery.


    On the one hand, In Spades is as quintessentially Afghan Whigs as anything the group has ever done - fulfilling its original mandate to explore the missing link between howling Midwestern punk like Die Kreuzen and HÜsker DÜ, The Temptations' psychedelic soul symphonies, and the expansive hard-rock tapestries of Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd. At the same time, this new record continues to push beyond anything in the Whigs' previous repertoire - another trademark, along with the explosive group dynamic captured on the recording.


    Indeed, the chemistry of the lineup - Dulli, guitarists Dave Rosser and Jon Skibic, drummer Patrick Keeler, multi-instrumentalist Rick Nelson, and Whigs co-founder/bassist John Curley - set the tone for In Spades' creation. When it came to follow up the band's triumphant return to recording - Do To the Beast (2014), which was the band's first ever Top 40 album, - the die was cast. "This is the first time since Black Love [the Whigs' 1996 noir masterpiece] that we've done a full-blown band album," Dulli says.


    The joys, sorrows, and upheavals of innocence and experience echo throughout In Spades: it powerfully documents where The Afghan Whigs have been, and where they might go next. For Dulli and Curley, it's a journey that, since their origins as one of the first Sub Pop acts to be signed from outside the label's Pacific Northwest base, has spanned decades. Dulli notes they were barely in their twenties when they first started the band, and yet here they are, fulfilling dreams long held and frequently realized. "Having a break from the Whigs helped me remember what made it so rewarding," Curley says. "Over the course of a lifetime, there are constants, and there's also change. You see who's dropped off the vine - who's going in reverse, and who's still by your side. It's interesting to see where life takes you, and where it doesn't. That's the journey and it hasn't stopped."


    In Spades was recorded at Rick Nelson's studio Marigny Sound in New Orleans, LA.

    In Glendale

    For the last decade, Tim Heidecker (along with his comedy partner Eric Wareheim) has proven to be one of our cult-comedy greats with his Adult Swim series Tim & Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job! and Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories. He's starred in indie films and played sold out stand-up sets around the world.


    But who is Tim Heidecker? Is he a real man with all the regular feels? Well, yes, of course he is. He resides on a hill in Glendale, CA, up to his armpits in diapers, bills, his mortgage, in the workaday life of a writer. It's this pedestrian side of his life from which Heidecker pulls the fodder for the aptly titled In Glendale, his first earnest collection of songwriting under his full name.


    In Glendale shows Heidecker shifting deftly from the mundane to the idiosyncratic; from the sentimental to the caustic; from the earnest to the humorous. His knack for crafting catchy tunes amid curious subject matter pops up in spades across In Glendale. Ghost In My Bed is a lovely little number about cutting off someone's head, sticking it in a plastic bag and burying it beneath the Hollywood sign.


    After an album's worth of songs about Hollywood murder fantasies, diaper changes and even a cameo from director David Gordon Green, you're left desperately trying to wipe the smile off your face.

    In Step (45 RPM)

    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    All-Analog Mastering By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Tapes


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    On 1989's In Step, Vaughan found his own songwriting voice, blending blues, soul, and rock in unique ways, and writing with startling emotional honesty. Yes, there are a few covers, all well chosen, but the heart of the album rests in the songs he cowrote with Doyle Bramhall, the man who penned the Soul to Soul highlight "Change It." Fueled by a desire to make up for lost time and delight in his reawakened commitment to life and sobriety, Vaughan turned in what many consider his greatest artistic statement, an album ensconced in sweat, soul, determination, and not an ounce of filler.


    "Travis Walk" offers a heady rush of flat-picking, "The House is Rockin'" is full-tilt roots-boogie, "Let Me Love You Baby" and "Leave My Girl Alone" are sweet blues epiphanies, and the nine-minute instrumental "Riviera Paradise" is a truly soulful mix of blues and jazz. By now, just a year before his untimely death, Vaughan had also tamed his bawling voice into a rich instrument. In short, this 1989 session is Vaughan at his artistic peak.


    In Step remains one of the five greatest blues records of the past quarter century. There's not a link in this chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy. We're passionate about the blues AND Stevie Ray and the passion shows up here in spades.

    Livin' In Exile

    The band is called Blood for Blood, the album is called Livin' In Exile, they represent the East Coast and the release is on Victory. Without even listening to a note on this record, you already know what it's going to sound like. But for all those with their head in the clouds: hardcore in that metallic chugga-chugga sort of way with some hits of OI! and a blatant Slapshot influence -they're both from Boston after all. But what makes this stand out is a lack of cheesiness, testosterone -well, maybe a little bit- and bone headed lyrics. Even a Motorhead cover of Ace of Spades, but like they needed it to impress all the Victory Record followers.

    In The Beginning (200 Gram Vinyl)


    Mastered From The Original Tapes By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound


    200-Gram Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the '80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Otis Rush and Hubert Sumlin and rock 'n' roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre.


    Before the Montreaux Jazz Festival, before Bowie's Let's Dance album, before Texas Flood, before the Grammys, before the cocaine and alcohol abuse, before the redemption of sobriety, before the joyful In Step and Family Style ..... before August 27, 1990..... before the all-star tributes, before The Legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan......


    There was an unknown, hardworking 24-year-old gunslinger named Little Stevie Vaughan, learning his craft the hard way in the trenches of the Austin Texas clubs, trying his darndest to get out of the shadow of his famous older brother Jimmie.


    It wouldn't be long.


    Anyone lucky enough to have been in the audience at this early live show, on April Fools Day in 1980, could have told you that. Young Stevie Vaughan (he had yet to become Stevie Ray) blasted the hometown crowd with a style that was already very well-formed. With Chris Layton on drums and bassist Jackie Newhouse (Tommy Shannon would join up a year later), his basic sound was already in place, albeit still in need of some polishing.


    Taken from the surviving two-track master, Vaughan's guitar is raw and in your face every note of the way. His takes on Freddie King's In the Open and the lengthy Tin Pan Alley are the real highlights here.


    As we did with our vaunted box set reissues, Texas Hurricane, again Analogue Productions is bringing you the finest-sounding Stevie Ray Vaughan collections ever preserved on 200-gram vinyl. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed of course at Quality Record Pressings.

    If ever there was a group in the Britpop movement that brought spirituality to the table, Kula Shaker did it in spades, and magnificently at that.


    After a trip to India lead singer and front man Crispian Mills became interested in Indian music, culture and tradition and decided to use instruments like the sitar, tamboura and tabla and write songs in the ancient and sacred Hindu language.

    The combination with the psychedelic swirling guitars and a Beatles-esque vibe ensured a string of top-ten hits, including Tattva, Govinda, Hey Dude, and their cover of the Deep Purple classic Hush.


    'K' climbed to the top of the British album charts, went double platinum and won Kula Shaker the 1997 BRIT award for Best Breakthrough Act.

    Sasquanaut

    As I said a handful of reviews ago, it's always refreshing when I come across an album that doesn't reek of the usual influences. Enter Columbus, Ohio's Lo Pan, who eschews the Kyuss-Sabbath-Queens of the Stone Age trifecta for that of Boston's Only Living Witness.


    Most of that stems from vocalist Jeff Martin, who's a dead ringer for OLW frontman Jonah Jenkins. But that's not to say that the rest of the band - Brian Fristoe, J. Bartz, and Skot Thompson - isn't that far removed from the Innocents and Prone Mortal Form hardcore-meets-rock riff slinging. There's definitely a correlation between Sasquanaut's ''Dragline'' and ''Kramer'' and OLW's ''Total Particle Reversal'' and ''December.''


    Mind you, I'm not complaining. In the wild, woolly world of stoner rock, there are more than enough bands dishing out the prerequisite fat riffs and thick grooves. It's refreshing to hear a rock band that balances a harder edge with some classic, soaring vocals. You get that in spades with Sasquanaut, and if you're a fan of OLW - or Disengage, another like-minded band that burned bright and fast - you'll find Lo Pan to be exactly what you need.

    Last Chance To Dance

    While Fat has a long history of bands influenced BY the Ramones (Chixdiggit!, Teenage Bottlerocket, Masked Intruder, Screeching Weasel), releasing an album FROM an actual Ramone is a first and a true honor. Last Chance to Dance is CJ Ramone's second solo album and was recorded with the stellar backing band of Steve Soto (Adolescents), Dan Root (Adolescents), and David Hidalgo, Jr. (Social Distortion). With a sound and style true to the Ramones, CJ has created a positively infectious punk rock record. Sometimes you just "need a Ramones fix," the expression goes, and CJ Ramone's Last Chance to Dance satisfies that craving in spades. And now, a word from the man himself, CJ RAMONE:


    Hey kids CJ Ramone here. My new record Last Chance to Dance is coming out November 25th!!! It's 12 tracks of everything you'd expect from a CJ Ramone record. Hard chargin' and vicious with some sweet melodies to smooth out the edges. Keep an eye for dates for our 2015 World Tour. See y'all on the big road.

    Calling Out

    It wouldn't be entirely accurate to say that EZTV met while trying out for J. Spaceman's
    latest US touring line-up of Spiritualized, but it's not far from the truth.
    Songwriter and audio engineer Ezra Tenenbaum had been casually working
    on solo home recordings on his Tascam 8-Track in the vein of Shoes, Emitt
    Rhodes and Cleaners For Venus, and, in a desire to round out the songs, he
    enlisted bassist Shane O'Connell and drummer Michael Stasiak (formerly of
    Widowspeak). As it happened, the trio's first chance to play together was an
    audition for the American touring version of Spiritualized (they didn't get the job).
    But, the trio kept meeting and working, turning Ezra recording as a solo artist
    into Ezra, Shane and Michael playing as a band; thus, EZTV was formed.


    With a pool of over 30 demos to work with and Jarvis Taveniere of Woods
    onboard to produce, the band headed to Thump Studios in Greenpoint,
    Brooklyn, to record their debut LP for Captured Tracks. The result is Calling
    Out, a cohesive 12-song statement in the long tradition of fully realized debuts,
    stripped of artifice, but full of hooks and songwriting chops. Tracks like
    first single "The Light," premiering today via The FADER, exhibit what you would
    call the EZTV mantra: presenting songs with only the required embellishments.
    They've got one foot firmly planted in classic American power-pop and college
    rock while the other utilizes more left-of-the-dial sonic experimentation.
    The result is a sound that's both familiar and new, but always about the songs.


    In an era of independent music with a lot more emphasis placed on "story" and
    meaningless twitter feuds, EZTV present a record that speaks for itself. It's an
    LP made for an audience that doesn't want or need any kind of angle or controversy,
    but desires songs that resonate and have a lasting appeal, something
    available here in spades.

    Dad Country

    Nashville songwriter Jonny Fritz's work ethic and boldness have paid off in spades. It's been a big year for Jonny with opening stints for Alabama Shakes, Deer Tick, Dawes, Shooter Jennings and kudos from CMT and Rolling Stone, among many others. He signed his deal this week (he actually signed the deal with gravy at Nashville landmark Arnold's Country Kitchen), and his third full-length album, Dad Country, is set for release on April 16, 2013.


    Produced by Jonny and Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith, recorded at Jackson Browne's Los Angeles studio and finished up in Music City, USA; this breakthrough album balances Jonny's trademark earthy humor and unfiltered worldview with some of his darkest material to date. Co-producer Goldsmith says, "Funny as they can be at moments, his songs access realities and experiences that we're all familiar with but sometimes fail to consider the depths of."
    While immersing himself in the music world, Jonny began running marathons from Philadelphia to Barcelona and pounding out his signature leather works - the dog collars and guitar straps - seen all over Nashville and half the musical universe. He found himself in NYC for year trying to save a relationship, and its slow, painful unraveling (and demise) inspired Dad Country's bleakest, heartrending tracks, including "All We Do Is Complain" and "Have You Ever Wanted to Die."


    These days, life has never been better for Jonny Fritz. He's back in Nashville again and putting down roots- and has even gone and bought himself a house. "It just keeps getting better. Now, the band is getting paid, I'm getting paid, everybody's happy, and we're packing 'em in when we play."
    "This is the dream life. I couldn't really ask for anything else."

    Coltrane Jazz

    180 Gram 45 RPM Double LP Remastered From Original Master Tapes


    Pressed at Pallas and Mastered by Bernie Grundman


    Originally released in 1960, and on the heels of Giant Steps, Coltrane Jazz came in the midst of the saxophonist's peak Atlantic period. The album is among several recordings that Coltrane issued from 1959-1961, and which, ultimately, forever changed the face of music.


    Featuring pianists Wynton Kelly and McCoy Tyner, bassists Paul Chambers and Steve Davis, and drummers Elvin Jones and Jimmy Cobb, the set was recorded at three separate sessions. The expert personnel are a harbinger of the great quartet Coltrane soon would assemble for 1960's My Favorite Things. And while not as famous as that iconic title, Coltrane Jazz belongs in the pantheon of phenomenal jazz albums and is an absolute must for any music fan.


    In addition to boasting superior performances and playing, the set marks Trane's first use of multiphonics, the practice of extracting more than one tone at a time from the horn, which here, and unlike on any other Coltrane record, is querulously pitched, allowing him to explore new tonalities on tracks such as Harmonique. Innovations abound. Every cut is an original composition save for Johnny Mercer's My Shining Hour. Not surprisingly, Miles Davis' influence is felt throughout; his rhythm section is used on all but one selection.


    ORG Music continues its praiseworthy archival vinyl series, presenting this landmark jazz effort cut at 45RPM and on first-rate 180g vinyl. Mastered from the original master tapes with meticulous care, Coltrane Jazz teems with new life, with the headliner's horn playing and tonalities assuming lifelike richness, boldness, and presence. The supporting cast's movements and fills are heard in pristine clarity, and the airiness that all jazz lovers prize is here in spades.

    Double 1990 Grammy Award Winner: Best Contemporary Blues Album, Best Rock Instrumental Performance - "D/FW"


    Stevie Ray had made music beyond the powers of most musicians but for this 1990 studio collaboration he returned to the things he loved: upbeat music and working with the brother he idolized his whole life. In his early years, Stevie Ray Vaughan often remarked that he would like to do an album with his brother. He fulfilled that wish in his very last studio performance, which was released nearly a month after his death. The liner notes end with "Thanks Mama V. for letting us play." With slick production from Nile Rodgers and employing neither guitarist's band (Double Trouble nor the Fabulous Thunderbirds), this is bluesy, but far from purist. Jimmie makes his vocal debut on "White Boots"
    and "Good Texan" and the brothers blur the lines between their expected guitar styles - Stevie sometimes going for a less sustained twang, Jimmie moving into Albert King territory.


    As we did with our vaunted box set reissues, Texas Hurricane, again Analogue Productions is bringing you the finest-sounding Stevie Ray Vaughan collections ever preserved on 200-gram vinyl. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed of course at Quality Record Pressings.

    RIP Gibraltar, long live Castle Rock! Like Gibraltar before it, Castle Rock is designed as an
    extremely high-performance cable which provides true Double-BiWire performance in a single
    attractive cable. Original Gibraltar's all important basics - superior geometry, magnetic
    autonomy of each quad-conductor section, Perfect-Surface metal technology, conductor-size
    optimization (AQ's Spread-Spectrum Technology), etc. - are the fundamentals of Castle Rock.
    Castle Rock employs AQ's best copper conductor metal (Perfect-Surface Copper+),
    AudioQuest's DBS (Dielectric-Bias System) and NDS (Noise-Dissipation System).


    A very recent advancement featured in Castle Rock (and all other Tree and Rock Series speaker
    cables) is the addition of the sleek new Hanging Silver 1000 Series Multi-Spades and Bananas.
    Originally developed for the WEL Signature Series speaker cables, these plugs are made using a
    Hanging Silver over pure Red Copper process in which the spades and bananas are submerged
    ("hung") into a vat of extreme-purity silver, resulting in a very thick direct-silver plate. No
    intermediary performance-degrading materials (such as nickel or alloy) are used.


    Also new to Castle Rock is a more-neatly-sculpted "breakout" (the covering where the cable
    separates into red and black legs), which is now made of a synthetic non-magnetic polymer,
    rather than metal. We're making this all-models upgrade because speaker cables and AC power
    cables carry large magnetic fields which interact with any metal "collar" around the cable.
    Eliminating metal in the breakouts is another significant (and clearly audible) step forward in our
    goal of eliminating distortion and making the cable sonically invisible.


    Castle Rock represents the culmination of Gibraltar's long-term evolution along with
    performance-enhancing new systems and materials. These ingredients add up to important
    audible improvements and more pleasurable listening!

    Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic

    Hey, what's this? Well that, my friend, is the newest album from The
    Gotobeds, entitled Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic. It's their second
    full-length LP and their first for Sub Pop. Whoa, whoa, please slow down.
    I'm already completely lost. What you just said sounded like a stream of
    complete gibberish. Okay, I'll lay it out for you and if you have any
    questions could you yell them at me? SOUNDS GOOD. The Gotobeds
    formed vaguely around 2009 in Pittsburgh and play a mutant strain of rock
    music that is often filed under punk, indie rock, or 99-cent discount bin.
    WAIT, THE GOTOBEDS? I HEARD THEY WERE KNUCKLEHEADS! Only if
    the knuckle is the part of the human body that contains the brains. Much
    like their previous releases on underground stalwart labels like Mind Cure
    and 12XU, this new album artfully slips intelligence and experimentation
    into a dying art form. It's a harder feat than you'd think.


    And sure, their live shows have often been compared to an all night party
    where I feared for my life and the lives of everybody in the five block
    radius, and their recorded output is akin to the sonic manifestos of four
    men deprived of human love and raised on beer and Swell Maps, Mission
    of Burma, and old Fall records. But what you get with The Gotobeds,
    delivered in spades on this album, is smart, noisy rock with just the right
    amount of stupid.


    FAIR ENOUGH. SO HOW'D THIS GET MADE? It was recorded in bursts
    over several months of 2015 in their friend My War Matt's basement in
    Pittsburgh. Unlike previously, the songs were conceived and recorded in
    blocks, which resulted in a more experimental feel. But this is no chin
    stroking curate's egg. You like loud, double guitar leads? OF COURSE I DO.
    WHO DOESN'T? You're in luck, because this album is carpeted with em,
    thanks to Eli Kasan and TFP. On a song like 'Bodies,' it sounds as if
    you've walked into the biggest Guitar Center, but, you know, not terrible.
    Keeping it all locked down is the rhythm section of drummer, Cary Belback
    and bassist, Gavin Jensen. They allow the downright prettiness of a song
    like Red Alphabet to shine, and the lyrics on the anti-sexism thrash of
    Crisis Time to punch through.


    THIS ALL SOUNDS WONDERFUL, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED
    TO CARE ABOUT? Eh, probably not. Except that Tim Midyett (Silkworm,
    Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile) and some bum (Protomartyr) are featured as
    guest vocalists on Rope and Why'd You, respectively. Also, I'd be remiss
    to not mention the fact that the band's live show is a testament to the
    cathartic nature of speed, skill, repetition, noise, and red stage lights. If
    you don't believe me, ask the bands they have played with, like Total
    Control, Tyvek, or The Replacements. Also, they rep Pittsburgh harder than
    anyone possibly could and come off better for it...which is saying
    something.


    I THINK I UNDERSTAND. BLOOD // SUGAR // SECS // TRAFFIC IS THE
    GREATEST ALBUM SINCE THE LAST GOTOBEDS RECORD? Yes. Now
    please stop yelling. -Joe Casey, Protomartyr

    Blood On The Tracks

    Ranked 16/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Dylans Masterpiece Break-Up Album: Sentimental Redemption Arises Amidst Sorrow, Turmoil, Sadness, and Pain


    Presence, Immediacy, Naturalness, Realism in Spades: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Makes Blood on the Tracks Among Most Lifelike-Sounding Albums You'll Ever Hear



    Songs Flow Like Rivers, Acoustic and Electric Elements Merge Like Bezels on a Diamond


    Includes Tangled Up In Blue, Simple Twist of Fate, Idiot Wind, Buckets of Rain


    The Freewheelin Bob Dylan, Another Side of Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home, Blonde on Blonde, and The Basement Tapes Also Available from Mobile Fidelity


    Bob Dylan was at several crossroads in the mid-1970s. Artistically, he was largely written off as being past his prime. Emotionally, he was suffering through a painful divorce from his then-wife Sara Lowndes. Creatively, he appeared at a stalemate, his previous decades unprecedented run of transformational brilliance finished. Then came Blood on the Tracks.


    A start-to-finish cycle that documents a lovers pursuit of, entanglement with, and loss of a woman, the bracingly intimate 1975 effort remains one of the most encompassing break-up albums ever made and ranks as the most personal statement of the Bards career. To hear it is to experience the agony, frustration, trauma, highs, lows, confusion, sadness, and, ultimately, requisite redemption associated with intimate relationships gone astray. Dylan maintains its a work of fiction, but its evident close-vested autobiographical premise is what helps make it universal: Its the icon singing through tears, going out of his mind, battling hallowing emptiness, firing shots across the bow, and accepting culpability. It is, in short, a consummate expression of loves darker sides and the consequences of what happens when dreams unravel.


    As part of its Bob Dylan catalog restoration series, Mobile Fidelity is thoroughly humbled to have the privilege of mastering the iconic LP from the original master tapes and pressing it on dead-quiet LPs at RTI. The end result is the very finest, most transparent analog edition of Blood on the Tracks ever producedand the first-ever proper analog reissue. Fantastically presenting both the solo acoustic and band-supported songs with the utmost clarity, dynamics, presence, immediacy, spaciousness, imaging, and balance, this version shines a high-powered light on the fluid vocal phrasing, timbral shifts, functional rhythms, and inward-looking strumming that contribute to every song here serving as a wound-exposing confessional.


    For all the melancholic pain, unresolved questions, shattered memories, wasted times, unrequited dialogs, and weary regret within, Blood on the Tracks remains as daring as it is reflective. Rather than follow for a monotone caustic vibe, Dylans songs burrow into the subconscious for the manners in which they are even-keeled, mellow, and occasionally, even peaceful. Dignity, honor, poignancy, and fairnessall traits uncommon in any situation in which partners dissolve histories, change hearts, and attribute blameinstill the record with equilibrium on par with the consistency of the flowing melodies.


    Throughout, tunes come on and proceed as if they could continue forever, Dylan spinning poetic verses and conversations amidst finely tied knots of acoustic notes, chords, and fills, the deceivingly simple architecture conjuring the intertwined refractions of a bezeled jewel, various angles, colors, and textures conjoining into a gorgeously inseparable whole. Backed by Tony Browns flexible albeit subtle bass, Buddy Cages country-streaked pedal-steel guitar, and Paul Griffins soul-baring organan instrument used to shadow, tuckpoint, and illuminate here as effectively as any time in rock historyDylan pours soulful emotion, open his veins, and bleeds.


    Ranked 16 on Rolling Stones list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and replete with existential thought, piercing directness, raw singing, and majestic arrangements,


    Given the sonic and artistic merit of this album, we anticipate huge demand.

    Scorpion Child

    Black Double-LP in Gatefold

    Includes Bonus Track and Poster. Side D: Etched!


    Hooks: a musical idea or short riff, passage, or phrase that catches the ear of the listener. Some bands have 'em, most don't. Austin-based five-piece SCORPION CHILD have 'em in spades. Whether it's an extended blues jam or a short slice of bombastic heavy rock "The Child" lay a hook so tasty everyone bites. SCORPION CHILD come from lots of different places, not only logistically but musically. Their sound heralds back to early 70's kraut and psych-rock with a modern twist and lists PENTAGRAM, HAIRY CHAPTER and LUCIFER'S FRIEND as influences. They originally formed in 2006 and have spent the last few years perfecting both their songwriting and stage presence. Aryn Jonathan Black fronts the outfit with a siren-like voice reminiscent of a young Robert Plant. Guitarists Christopher Jay Cowart and Tom Frank layer high-energy twin-guitars over the band's driving rhythm section fueled by Shaun Avants (bass) and Shawn Alvear (drums). "Our influences are diversified as classic 80's thrash metal to the old school southern blues of Blind Willie Johnson, Lemon Jefferson and Willie McTell," says Black. "We came to Austin to form a band with a single vision and though we've played in different bands with a range of styles, after jamming together, we found our footing in what we do best." Balancing full-time jobs at coffee shops and bars around town forced the group to be very disciplined. "Austin's a great city to develop and hone your skills musically," admits Black. "Every genre can be found here from blues and jazz to punk and hardcore." In 2010, after years of slogging it out in the Austin scene, SCORPION CHILD gained peer recognition with critical praise from local and regional press while selling out high profile gigs at SXSW. The stage was set for the band's recording debut. After songwriting sessions in Nashville, the band spent last year recording their self-titled album with Grammy-nominated producer Chris "Frenchie" Smith known for his work with THE ANSWER, JET, AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD, DAX RIGGS, and many others). The result is a hybrid of nine, hook-filled heavy-psych classics that breathe new life into a stale hard rock market. Their music erupts with big drums, thunderous guitar riffs and dangerous soul ridden bass lines. Black's powerful rock vocals convey a sexiness and swagger not heard since the days of FREE and HUMBLE PIE. A surge of electricity bursts from the first notes of "Kings Highway" to the pummeling drive of "The Secret Spot" and the highly addictive open-chord "Liquor". Built for the big stage is "Salvation Slave" which hearkens back to a time when guitar rock ruled the airwaves and made going to a concert the ultimate main event. Building on dynamic tension comes the acid-infused "Antioch", a progressive number with hypnotic beats and subtle shades of light that build into a blinding guitar duet. A galloping pulse distinguishes "In The Arms of Ecstasy" as a celebration of groove that is followed by the raw unchained riffage of "Paradigm". The album concludes with the slow building "Red Blood (The River Flows)" which continues to attract comparisons to LED ZEPPELIN. "We do have this whole acoustic side that sounds very ZEPPELIN III with a lot of gospel", says Black. "ZEPPELIN were very innovative and not afraid to go outside the usual confines of electric blues. I guess that's where the comparison comes from." Recently signed to legendary metal label Nuclear Blast the band has pulled "Polygon of Eyes" as their lead single. A nod to DIO-era RAINBOW, the song is four minutes of power-heavy rock plowing through an ancient storyline of swords and mystics. Says Black, "I've always wanted to hear new musical ingredients within a classic heavy sound. We want to maintain spontaneity while putting special emphasis into integral hooks." As vinyl continues to gain momentum, SCORPION CHILD with Nuclear Blast have plans to release their debut in June 2013 as a glorious gatefold edition with different colored vinyl in each pressing. Building up to the debut release was a large-scale tour with CLUTCH and UK's ORANGE GOBLIN the perfect event to introduce SCORPION CHILD to the masses. Several summer festivals are to follow including Rock The Range and Rocklahoma. The band join an elite few including THE SWORD, GRAVEYARD, WOLFMOTHER and RIVAL SONS who celebrate a warm Marshall and liquid feedback while still pushing boundarie

    Anvil Is Anvil

    High Class Double Gatefold LP Version With Clear Vinyl + CD


    Anvil is Anvil! A self confident statement. A band philosophy. And what's more: a life motto. Anvil is Anvil, that's the title of their latest album. And the name says it all: an unambiguous, uncompromising recording, typical of this band. At the same time it's fresh, occasionally surprising and generally exciting through and through. A stalwart metal manifesto by a band who stand for authenticity and credibility like few others in this fast lived business.


    Anvil is Anvil sounds all of one piece and presents the band's amazing diversity, combined with their conscious loyalty to the compositional DNA of their own classics. "Die For A Lie" for example sounds like a contemporary version of "Jackhammer" and the stomping "Runaway Train" features the same directives as "Smoking Green", only based on Kudlow's present day maturity.


    Anvil is Anvil was produced by Martin "Mattes" Pfeiffer (U.D.O.) at the Redhead 4 Studios in Pulheim near Cologne, Germany. For Lips, whose family is Jewish, as is drummer Robb Reiner's, it was a special moment to work with a German producer in a German studio.


    Anvil is Anvil not only touches on sensitive issues but also documents the band's lust for life, their dynamic musical style and their absolute down to earthiness. When Lips delivers the line "Ace of Spades and the joker is wild" on "It's Your Move" with a surprisingly realistic Motörhead timbre, it proves his sense of humor and is an homage at the same time. And when Anvil invite their fans to the studio to join the choir on "Daggers And Rum", it only shows the closeness between the musicians and their fans.

    Elan 35 Speakers - Black


    Have a question about this product? Please email our href=mailto:audioadvisor@soundstagedirect.com>audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Elan 35 is the largest floor-stand speaker in this new range. Its design holds true to the purist principles followed by Epos. The two woofers work together at low frequencies to provide even higher sensitivity and power handling than the bookshelf models - in addition to delivering deeper and more powerful bass. We believe this design philosophy delivers the very best sound quality and musical performance for the money.


    Design

    Only the finest real-wood veneers are selected, book-matched and hand-laid. Several coats of polyurethane are applied and polished for a high-quality finish. To minimise unwanted vibration and coloration, extensive horizontal and vertical internal bracing are positioned inside the sturdy 18mm thick MDF cabinets. For optimum performance and stability, they should be fitted with the plinths supplied, together with the adjustable spiked feet, designed to decouple unwanted energy from the cabinet into the floor.


    Elan 35 is supplied with two baffles. The standard audiophile baffle with no visible fixing screws is fitted. If required, this can easily be swapped for the alternative cloth covered version, which is designed with the same profile as the naked baffle. Both types of baffle fit snugly around the tweeter and are both gently contoured around the woofers. So, unlike a conventional grille frame, there are no obstructions or sharp edges to cause reflections and sound colorations. The sound from both types of baffle will therefore sound similar.


    Tweeter

    Epos has developed a new soft-dome tweeter for the Epic and Elan range. By using virtual-performance CAD simulation tools, this new tweeter has been designed to achieve the accuracy and speed of a metal dome but with smoothness associated with a soft dome. It has a low resonance frequency, high sensitivity and extended high frequency response. With its 25mm (one inch) doped-fabric dome, short horn, high-temperature Ferro-fluid cooled voice-coil and shielded neodymium magnet, it is capable of high output levels for extended periods. Its natural high sensitivity is necessary to match the much increased output from the new bass and mid-range drivers.


    Mid-Bass

    A new long-throw eight-Ohm 187mm bass/mid driver has been developed for the Elan 35. Built on to an open-frame cast-aluminium alloy chassis, with a generously ventilated spider and vented magnet pole, this driver minimises colorations and distortions while allowing greater sound pressure levels than earlier Epos drivers.


    The bass/mid units feature a high-quality polypropylene cone and 'bullet'-shaped dust cap. These form a stiff yet pliable, well-damped structure which retains its shape, even at high power. This helps the woofers to produce a dynamic sound, with a very even frequency response and naturally smooth roll-off. The lower woofer is rolled-off by the crossover (filtered) so that it only plays bass, allowing the top mid-woofer to play bass and mid-range smoothly. The mid-woofer is rolled-off (filtered) at higher frequencies by the crossover to integrate properly with the tweeter. This is essentially a true 2 ½ way configuration.


    Both woofers are loaded by a very large diameter port, flared at both ends, to reduce turbulence. Together they produce plenty of clean deep bass coupled with a clear, smooth and detailed mid-range. In some rooms, or in placing them close to a wall or corner of a room, this may be too much, so we have supplied a custom foam bung to fit inside the entrance to the port to restrict the airflow and roll-off the bass earlier.


    A special feature of this floor-standing speaker is its high sensitive, making it suitable for use with a wide range of amplifiers, from as small as 10 watts to as large as 200 watts into 4 Ohms. So, tube fans should find this amp a perfect match.


    Crossover

    In typical Epos fashion, the Elan 35 crossover is as simple as we can make it: both the woofer and tweeter networks are 2nd order filters at 800Hz and 3.2kHz. To ensure the highest sound quality, all the resistors are metal oxide, all the capacitors are high-quality polypropylene-foil dielectric types and internal wiring uses proprietary solid-core wire covered in a sponge sheath to prevent vibration. Inductors are designed for low distortion even at high powers: air-core for the tweeter and an over-sized laminated-iron core for the woofer. All connections to drive units and crossover are hand soldered. The input terminals are bi-wirable, using a proprietary metal terminal panel with solid metal binding post equipped for 4mm plus and large spade lugs.


    Detail

    We paid great attention to every single minute detail during the design of the Elan 35, to give customers the best sound at the best price. It comes as no surprise that this elegant speaker will have you in awe from the first note. In addition to the astonishing bass power, detail and depth, sound stage, depth and detail are truly exceptional, with a clarity that outshines the competition and many higher priced speakers.


    This is a truly eye and ear-opening loudspeaker that will keep you enthralled listening to your favorite tracks for many years to come.

    Rocket 44 incorporates Perfect-Surface Copper+ into its blend of conductors. PSC+ has fewer grain boundaries, which reduces harshness in the sound. This carefully finessed combination of PSC and PSC+ enables Rocket 44 to deliver a clear and faithful presentation.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+/PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER (PSC+/PSC) CONDUCTORS: Rocket 44 uses a carefully finessed combination of extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ and Perfect-Surface Copper. The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC further eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity. Rocket 44's conductor mix is dominated by PSC+.


    CARBON-BASED NOISE-DISSIPATION and CROSS-TALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEMS (INSULATION): The four negative conductors in Rocket 44 are insulated with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and better dimensionality that comes whenever RF garbage is reduced in an audio circuit. Rocket 44 uses Nitrogen-Injected Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on its positive conductors because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss with a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation, it causes much less of the "out-of-focus" effect common to other materials.


    DOUBLE STAR-QUAD GEOMETRY: The relationship between conductors defines a cable's most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly affect the sound. The Double Star-Quad construction of Rocket 44 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.


    SPREAD-SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY (SST): Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature. SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different sized conductors. The different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Rocket 44 allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.

    This Double Star-Quad Geometry "Rocket" cable does not look normal on the outside, and it is not at all normal on the inside. A sophisticated combination of extraordinary materials and extremely refined design allows the Rockets to honor all types of music equally.


    SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER/PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER (LGC/PSC) CONDUCTORS: Rocket 33 uses a carefully finessed combination of Long-Grain Copper and extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance. The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC further eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity.


    CARBON-BASED NOISE-DISSIPATION and CROSS-TALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEMS (INSULATION): The four negative conductors in Rocket 33 are insulated with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene.

    AG-4 represents the ultimate refinement of AudioQuest's Star-Quad design. Solid Perfect-Surface Silver conductors offer unprecedented clarity and dynamics over all other conductors. AG-4 is invisible when you don't want to see it. Beautiful when you want to gaze upon it.


    SOLID 100% PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER (PSS) CONDUCTORS: AG-4's Perfect-Surface Silver has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. PSS's extreme transparency is made possible by applying Perfect-Surface Technology to ultra-pure solid silver. For fifteen years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals, but even we were surprised by the huge leap in performance made possible with Perfect-Surface Technology. PSS is the ultimate example of how far this remarkable technology can take us. All drawn metal exhibits directionality, whether in hardware store wire or in the best AQ cable. We wish we could design away this awkwardness. Since we can't, we pay close attention to optimizing performance by clearly marking the cables and our terminations. Please watch for these markings when installing any audio cables.


    CARBON-BASED NOISE-DISSIPATION and CROSS-TALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEMS (INSULATION):The two negative conductors in AG-4 are insulated with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and better dimensionality that comes whenever RF garbage is reduced in an audio circuit. AG-4 uses Nitrogen-Injected Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on its positive conductors because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.


    STAR-QUAD GEOMETRY: The relationship between conductors defines a cable's most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly affect the sound. The Star-Quad construction of AG-4 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.


    SPREAD-SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY (SST): Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature. SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different size conductors. The different SST-determined conductor sizes used in AG-4 allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.


    DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #s 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest's DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur. Sound appears from a surprisingly black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check.

    Redwood stands as a giant among its peers. The carefully finessed combination of Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ and Perfect-Surface Silver conductors allow your music to present a sound field that is both large (as it was intended) and coherent. The addition of silver offers a significant improvement in ease and resolution.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+/PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER (PSC+/PSS) CONDUCTORS: Redwood uses a carefully finessed combination of Perfect-Surface Copper+ and extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver conductors in a Self-Shielding Counter-Spiral HyperLitz. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, which is the greatest single source of distortion in an audio cable or an AC power cable. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. Extremely high-purity PSS further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.


    CARBON-BASED MULTI-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION and CROSS-TALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (INSULATION): The negative conductors in Redwood are insulated with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and better dimensionality that comes whenever RF garbage is reduced in an audio circuit. Redwood uses Nitrogen-Injected Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on its positive conductors because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile.

    DOUBLE COUNTER-SPIRAL GEOMETRY: Redwood and the other AQ "Tree Feature" cables have an inner circular array of positive conductors spiraling in one direction. Around this inner group are the negative conductors, spiraling in the opposite direction. Even while the positive and negative conductors are crossing each other instead of being parallel, the relationship between the positive and negative groups is fixed and non-changing, adhering to one of AudioQuest's most basic design tenets: consistency. The result is an astonishing clarity, like focusing a camera lens you had no idea was so far out of focus.


    SPREAD-SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY (SST): Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid round or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature. SST uses a precise combination of different size conductors in order to significantly reduce the audibility of these character flaws. The different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Redwood allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.
