The album is already being hailed as the band's best ever studio release. Pressed on two 180g vinyl LPs and packaged in a beautiful gate-fold sleeve.

Joy Division: Box SetReleased in a Limited Edition of only 3,000 copies worldwide, this 180-Gram virgin vinyl, four-disc JOY DIVISION BOX SET contains new pressings of the band's two seminal studio albums - UNKNOWN PLEASURES ('79) and CLOSER ('80) - and the 1981 two-disc rarities compilation STILL.
JOY DIVISION: BOX SET allows you to experience these pioneering albums the way they were heard originally - on sonically rich vinyl LPs. The three titles - a total of four LPS - come housed in an elegant cloth-covered box designed by U.K. artist Peter Saville, who created the distinctive artwork and packaging on the original issues of these classic releases. Once the 3,000 copies sell out, the box will not be reproduced.
Joy Division's 1979 debut UNKNOWN PLEASURES is a landmark album that established the band as principal architects and ultimate icons of the post-punk movement and the U.K. Manchester scene of the late '70s. UNKNOWN PLEASURES' ten classic songs resonate with the atmospheric textures and deep sonic spaces of Martin Hannett's production. Highlights include Insight, Disorder, New Dawn Fades and She's Lost Control. The latter song is the inspiration for the title of the 2007 film Control, the acclaimed Anton Corbijn-directed feature chronicling the life and times of Joy Division's lead singer and principal songwriter, the late Ian Curtis.
Joy Division's 1980 follow-up CLOSER, another seminal post-punk masterpiece, ranks #157 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Musically and lyrically driven by the prevailing despair of Ian Curtis - who killed himself only months after the LP was released - CLOSER was also produced by Martin Hannett, who weaves sprawling emotional chaos and shifting atmospheres and textures together into an enormously powerful ten-song tour de force. Stand-outs include Heart And Soul, Isolation, Eternal, Decades and the wrenching Twenty Four Hours.
The compilation STILL came out in late 1981, over a year after Curtis' death. Comprised of twenty studio outtakes, b-sides, live cuts and other rarities, all the tracks were previously unissued at the time of STILL's original release except for Glass and Dead Souls, both compelling studio recordings from 1978 and 1979, respectively. STILL also presents material from Joy Division's last-ever concert, recorded at Birmingham University in May 1980 including the only time they performed Ceremony live (the song would later become a New Order single). Another track captured at Birmingham is Shadowplay, a selection covered in 2007 by The Killers for the soundtrack for the film Control. Other highlights include a live cover of The Velvet Underground's Sister Ray and a 1979 studio recording of Something Must Break.
Joy Division formed in Manchester, England in 1977, and had an immense and profound impact on contemporary music in a very brief time together. They recorded only two full-length studio albums, UNKNOWN PLEASURES and CLOSER, prior to lead singer Ian Curtis' 1980 suicide, just before the single Love Will Tear Us Apart became their breakthrough hit. The remaining members - guitarist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris - disbanded Joy Division after Curtis' death, and re-formed as New Order.Unknown Pleasures Track Listing:

Little JoyLittle Joy is Rodrigo Amarante (Los Hermanos), Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes) and Binki Shapiro, three friends who dropped their routine in their respective hometowns to make a record in Los Angeles, California. Through a chance encounter at a Portuguese festival in Lisbon, where both Amarante (Los Hermanos) and Moretti (The Strokes) had performed, the two talked about working together on some music that had no affiliation to their particular bands. A year later, Amarante traveled to the United States to record with Devendra Banhart on his Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon. It was there that Amarante and Moretti were introduced to Bink Shapiro through mutual acquaintances and soon after started writing original music as a band. They all moved into a house in Echo Park to demo songs and soon after, with the help of producer Noah Georgeson who had recorded Banhart's music, finished their self titled debut Little Joy named after the bar on the corner.1.

Little JoyLittle Joy is the third full-length release from the Melbourne, Australia trio My Disco. As always with My Disco, the most fascinating and unique element to their sound is space; long, deep, sometimes scary space. Their defiance of rock music's time-worn tropes is what defines them, and Little Joy explores and expands on that concept, stretching a naked few instruments to transform short blasts into heavy, rhythmic, meditative body music.
The bare bones of a drum beat, a rumbling bass, one repeated phrase and some bursts of feedback add up to a wholly compelling world of sounds between sounds. Shards of vaguely recognizable post-punk riffs fuse pounding, euphoric rhythms to hypnotic, almost psychedelic vocal mantras. The result is a new take on an old idea that occupies the unlikely space between Boredoms, The Necks, Wire and Liars.
Recorded by Steve Albini and mixed by Scott Horscroft, My Disco's minimalist instincts are perfectly suited for Albini's famously austere productions and Horscroft's textured, pop-leaning sensibilities. This unlikely marriage is at the heart of Little Joy's success. It's the sound of a band using the fewest tools to create the greatest range of possibilities, a record both expansive and minimal, a compressed expression of vast emotions.1. Closer

Led by Jonathan Meiburg, and featuring drummer Thor Harris, and bassist Kimberly Burke, Shearwater has been a favorite at Sub Pop HQ for years. On Animal Joy, Meiburg ditches the expansive approach of his recent records - particularly the epic trilogy of Palo Santo, Rook and The Golden Archipelago - to create a record that seems shockingly direct, immediate and intensely personal.

Share The JoyOn their third album (and Polyvinyl debut) Share the Joy, Brooklyns Vivian Girls continue to sharpen and refine their transcendent mix of garage thrash, girl-group warmth and infectious pop hooksmanship.
The ten-song Share the Joy finds the threesome of guitarist/vocalist Cassie Ramone, bassist/vocalist Kickball Katy and new drummer Fiona Campbell, continuing to evolve and expand, building on the D.I.Y. achievements of their 2008 debut, Vivian Girls, and its 2009 follow-up, Everything Goes Wrong, while delivering their most memorable songs and most focused performances yet.
Share the Joy's musical and emotional depth is reflected on The Other Girls and Light In Your Eyes, each of which clocks in at over six minutes. The former tune manages to encompass hammering hardcore, Beach Boys-esque melodic bliss, Neil Young/Nirvana-inflected guitar frenzy and ethereal harmonic drone, while the latter closes the album on a triumphant note of surging sonic uplift. Elsewhere, Dance If You Wanna and Take it As It Comes rank with the band's most intoxicating pop confections, while Lake House and Vanishing of Time maintain a thoughtful, introspective tone that may come as a surprise to those who'd had Vivian Girls pegged as a lo-fi garage outfit.

Measures Of Joy"Virginia Wing's neo-psych dreamscapes are delicate, yet delectable." - DIY MAG
Measures Of Joy is the debut album from South London based group Virginia Wing. The album is a work of psychedelic majesty that avoids the rockist trappings that many contemporary bands fall into; speaking to everyday anxiety and isolation and in contrast, seeking to evoke an inner world of pastoral fortification.
The startlingly realised collection draws influence from the radiophonic sounds of Broadcast, the kosmische wonder of Cluster and the rhythmic propulsion of This Heat whilst never directly emulating any particular style.
Building on the experimentations found on their 7 on Critical Heights and a 12 EP on Faux Discx, Measures Of Joy encompasses spoken-word passages, brooding electronics and musique concrete influences to create songs that are at once immediate and truly strange.
From the metronomic pulse of World Contact and the avant-pop of Marnie to the sonic experimentation of Gold Thread, Measures Of Joy is a record that consistently surprises and ensnares; a collection of hallucinogenic pop-songs played with a sense of urgency and an experimental verve.
Virginia Wing is Alice Merida Richards, Sam Pillay and Sebastian Truskolaski. The album was recorded at Holy Mountain Studios by Misha Hering.1. The Body Is a Clear Place

ADAD-RVN-7063xStellar Om Source
Joy One MileStellar OM Source's new album, Joy One Mile, marks a certain and spirited departure
into worlds unknown. A faithful leap into the infinite beat, Joy One Mile is the most
forward-reaching effort by Stellar OM Source yet.
Stellar OM Source originated from Christelle Gualdi's desire to unhinge from her
academic musical upbringing. A double bassist in the Konigin Katharina Stift
Schulorchester and a student of music theory at UniversitÉ Paris VIII, Gualdi
completed her studies in electro-acoustic composition at the Conservatoire de Paris
after earning an architecture degree.
The process of Gualdi's "unlearning" began in experimental ensemble settings,
and it became more recognizable as she moved toward solo performance.
Stellar OM Source's name is fittingly inspired in part by the pathway to higher
consciousness and cosmos via one's own voice.
Gualdi was also inspired by-and also an integral member of-the late aughts
DIY synthesizer community. Alongside Oneohtrix Point Never, Emeralds and James Ferraro,
Stellar OM Source's stream of self-released CDRs defined a zeitgeist of artists
trending away from their noisy roots via polyphonic escapism.
Based many miles away from her US counterparts in The Hague, South Holland,
Gualdi received a prophetic sign in 2010 when a regional eBay seller offered her
a mint Roland TB-303 for a mere €25-or $33. The instantly identifiable sounds of
the analog bass synthesizer began appearing in Gualdi's studio and live practices.
By virtue of her many aspirations and the array of hardware that Gualdi brought
to the table, Joy One Mile took shape in chaos. Where this disorder might cripple
others, Gualdi's response was energetically and emotionally charged.
The freedom from form that Gualdi sought with Joy One Mile was ultimately
obtained, but the severe surge of the finished recordings left her over stimulated.
Striking a dialogue with Gunnar Wendel (aka Kassem Mosse), Gualdi realized an
objective opinion and arrangement know how would allow clarity and an even
greater freedom-that from her own music.
The singularity of Gualdi's compositions, when pulled back and recalibrated even
slightly, resemble early era Warp Records, and, by that admission, the wayward
electro of early-90s Detroit. The abstractions in Gualdi's programming and mutant
melodies is what keeps Joy One Mile perfectly relegated to outsider status, akin to
the primitive techno of Esplendor Geometrico and Chris & CoseySide A

Joy Of NothingJoy Of Nothing is Foy Vance's Glassnote Records' debut. Recorded in Donegal, Ireland and produced by Irish producer/musician/engineer Michael Keeney, Joy of Nothing includes 10 original songs written and performed by Foy Vance and includes very special guest appearances by Ed Sheeran and Bonnie Raitt.
Foy Vance hails from the seaside town of Bangor in Northern Ireland. As a child, Foy relocated with his father, a preacher, to the American Midwest settling in Oklahoma. With his father, Foy travelled the American South, widening his horizons and absorbing the rich musical traditions he was exposed to. Returning to Ireland some years later, Foy began writing his own music, deeply shaped by the sounds of his youth. After a recent session with Daytrotter, they described Foy's songs and lyrics: They will haunt you with light. They'll haunt you with pangs of love. They'll haunt you with the tears of others. They'll make you realize that you've never felt anything even as remotely deep as he has.
Foy Vance supported Ed Sheeran on his UK tour in late 2012, followed by a sold-out headline UK tour earlier this year. He has spent the past few months on Sheeran's sold out US tour, and has previously toured with the likes of Michael Kiwanuka and David Gray.1. Closed Hand, Full of Friends

Joy Of A ToyAs the SOFT MACHINE's first bassist and original principal songwriter, Kevin Ayers was an overlooked force behind the group's groundbreaking recordings in 1967 and 1968. Joy Of A Toy is his debut solo album, its whimsical and unique vision is a clear indication of how Soft Machine might have progressed under Ayers' tenure. On the LP he is accompanied by his Soft Machine colleagues Robert Wyatt, Mike Ratledge and Hugh Hopper.
After a Soft Machine tour of the USA with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Ayers had decided to retire from the music business. Hendrix however, presented Ayers with an acoustic Gibson J-200 guitar on the promise that he continue his songwriting. Ayers repaired to a small London flat where he composed and arranged Joy Of A Toy features many of Ayers' most enduring songs from The Lady Rachel to Girl on a Swing.
It was on this album that Ayers developed his sonorous vocal delivery, an avant-garde song construction and an affection for bizarre instrumentation that would have a deep influence far into the 1970s and indeed the present day.1. Joy Of A Toy Continued

LanternsEqual parts producer and composer, Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) bridges an unusual
gap between old-world music theory and next-level experimentation. Meditative
but heaving with energy, "Lanterns" nds a peculiar congruency between
futuristic soul and ancient sentiment. Driving orchestral electronica (Lost It To
Trying, No Crimes) is placed alongside creepy minimalism (Pyre), often starkly
juxtaposing densely layered arrangements with Lott's fragile voice.
In recent past Son Lux has gained notoriety both for his s/s/s project (with
Sufjan Stevens and Serengeti), and from being named NPR's "Best New Artist of
the Year". His third full-length album, and his rst for Joyful Noise (Kishi Bashi,
Sebadoh, etc.), positions Son Lux at the helm of an impressive ensemble of
instrumentalists and singers, including Chris Thile (The Punch Brothers), Peter
Silberman (The Antlers), DM Stith, Lily & Madeleine, Darren King (Mutemath),

Women Of Your LifeWhite Colored Vinyl
Stripped-down, unblighted, bedroom pop songs... about girls. Women Of Your Life is the intimately facile sophomore album from indie-slackers Sleeping Bag.
The Bloomington, Indiana based trio is spearheaded by Dave Segedy, who is the group's drummer, songwriter and primary vocalist (that's right: a drummer who writes and sings all the songs!). Specializing in simple and honest songwriting, Malkmus-deadpan vocal delivery, and unusually addictive melodies, Sleeping Bag craft songs that are at once familiar and fresh.
The band's debut s/t album was released on Joyful Noise in August 2011, receiving praise from Under The Radar, Impose Magazine, Village Voice, RCRD LBL, and My Old Kentucky Blog. With their second album, the trio have matured in the ways one might expect: songs are a bit longer, lyrics a bit more personal, and arrangements more developed. But all of Sleeping Bag's signature elements are well represented
throughout: the heartfelt (In The Pocket, Still Life), the playful (Allison Cole, Saturday Night) and the unbelievably catchy (Soccer Ball, Walk Home).
Segedy's eortless melodies, accompanied by the distinctively jangling guitar work of Lewis Rogers and the tastefully minimal bass of David Woodru, combine to form a sound that summons the energy and earnestness of 90s rock, while sidestepping throwback territory. Familiar inuences are organically reconstructed into relevant,
captivating pop. These are instantly accessible songs which gain surprising depth with each obsessively repeated listen.1. Women Of Your Life
