    It's called The Millennium Concert as it was recorded in Vancouver, Canada on New Year's Eve 1999, a show where the reunited makeup band played some non-makeup era material (Heaven's on Fire, Lick It Up, and so on), plus the big, early hits (Shout It Out Loud, Beth, and many more). - David Jeffries (All Music Guide)

    Alive II


    180g Audiophile Vinyl Reissue


    Remastered To High Definition 192kHz/24-bit Audio For Maximum Fidelity


    Celebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now

    For Kiss' breakthrough 1975 release Alive!, the band had a total of three studio albums from which to select their in-concert repertoire. By mid-1977, Kiss had released another three studio recordings (Destroyer, Rock and Roll Over, and Love Gun), and with a new Kiss album needed for the holiday season, a second live album, Alive II, was assembled. Three sides were recorded live in concert at the Los Angeles Forum (with a few tracks recorded in Japan), while the fourth side featured five new studio recordings. Like its predecessor, there's been quite a lot of speculation concerning extensive overdubbing (the proof being that you can often hear several Paul Stanley voices singing backup simultaneously!), but Alive II shows that Kiss was still an exciting live band despite all the hype. Adrenaline-charged versions of Detroit Rock City, Love Gun, Calling Dr. Love, Shock Me, God of Thunder, I Want You, and Shout It Out Loud are all highlights. On the fourth side, Ace Frehley only plays on a single song (his self-penned classic Rocket Ride) for reasons unknown, while session guitarist Bob Kulick filled in for the AWOL Frehley. Among the studio tracks is the made-for-the-stage anthem Larger Than Life, which the band surprisingly never performed live.

    Alive! (Awaiting Repress)

    Ranked 159/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Alive! was the album that catapulted Kiss from cult attraction to mega-superstars. It was their first Top Ten album, remaining on the charts for 110 weeks and eventually going quadruple platinum. Culled from shows in Detroit, New Jersey, Iowa, and Cleveland on the Dressed to Kill tour, the record features producer Eddie Kramer doing a masterful job of capturing the band's live performance on record. The band's youthful energy is contagious, and with positively electric versions of their best early material, it's no mystery why Alive! is widely regarded as one of the greatest live hard rock recordings of all time. Rock and Roll All Nite became a Top 20 smash and was the main reason for the album's success, but there are many other tracks that are just as strong -- Deuce, Strutter, Firehouse, Parasite, She, 100,000 Years, Black Diamond, and Cold Gin all shine in a live setting. Although there's been some speculation of extensive overdubbing to correct mistakes, Alive! remains Kiss' greatest album ever. An essential addition to any rock collection.

    Ultima II Massage

    TOBACCO can't have nice things.


    On his third album, the Pennsylvania snake-synth-charmer deepens his approach
    to aural depravity. Ultima II Massage widens a jagged swath through the dude's
    own weird catalog, each disparate track damaged to the point of contributing to
    some sort of greater, lurching Frankenstein-like state. "I spent a lot of time
    breaking it in all the right places," says TOBACCO. "It ends up making the whole
    thing breathe - sometimes gasp for air. It feels more alive." Immediately after
    nishing 2010's Maniac Meat, he went to work on the beat-addled series begun
    with Fucked Up Friends in 2008. There were notable breaks en route to now - a
    surprising commission to remix White Zombie's "Thunder Kiss '65," a new BMSR
    record (Cobra Juicy), and producing Demon Queen's Exorcise Tape with vocalist
    Zackey Force Funk - but he saved the worst for last, amassing the most
    misanthropic material for Ultima. To wit, SPIN dubbed early share "Lipstick
    Destroyer" a "junkyard takedown of Daft Punk's beloved, pristine electro."
    TOBACCO explains his modied approach: "I wanted to push each song just
    enough, so that even when the album's at its wildest, it's something you can zone
    out to. It feels like a denitive end to a concept I've been trying to perfect forever.
    Maniac Meat was linear. This time I wanted to do a lot of di!erent things and have
    them come together as one meditative piece. At least for myself."


    Which, oddly enough, makes sense. This is easily TOBACCO's most diverse set to
    date - his own Stereopathetic Soulmanure, but about that 1-900 hotline life:
    massage parlors, plasticized sleaze, fake tans, old dial-ups to the fan clubs of
    dead B-actors. Fittingly, the album's only contributor is Beck music director Brian
    LeBarton who shrieks as Notrabel on the grimy freak-out "Streaker." At 17 tracks,
    Ultima is stacked with beautifully perverse hits - from the sickly sticky "Eruption,"
    to the wobbly demon swaggerer "Face Breakout," to the distorted punk spazz of
    "Dipsmack," to the apocalyptic sepia ambience of "Spitlord." You may hear
    disembodied bits of Boards of Canada, early Def Jam records, and Gary Numan,
    or maybe just public-access TV and bad VHS dubs of '80s horror icks. Or the sun
    exploding and everything you've ever loved melting. Again, TOBACCO was just
    trying to make meditation music.


    But to nd that rotted sweet spot, as always, he had to subvert his pop urges.
    TOBACCO went back to the cassette decks he started o! with - analog weapons
    of distortion to compliment his hissing vocoder and blown rhythms. Any moment
    that felt "just right" was brutally assaulted until ugly again. All to accomplish one
    end: "This might be my most purposely difcult album yet, but I promise if you let
    it in, it can fuck you up."


    Ultima II Massage. No happy ending.

    Rock And Roll Over (Awaiting Repress)


    180g Audiophile Vinyl Reissue


    Remastered To High Definition 192kHz/24-bit Audio For Maximum Fidelity


    Celebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now
    vinyl collectors will get what they've been demanding. All posters, sleeve art, stickers, etc that appeared in the original LP release where applicable have
    been faithfully reproduced for the KISS Army.


    With the massive success of their previous album, the experimental Bob Ezrin-produced Destroyer (which contained the surprise ballad hit Beth), Kiss could have taken the safe route and continued in that direction -- or return to the raw hard rock of their first four albums. They chose the latter. Hooking back up with Eddie Kramer, the producer of their 1975 breakthrough release Alive! and their very first demo, Kiss rented out the Nanuet Star Theater in upstate New York to record their next album, Rock and Roll Over. With a more direct, in-your-face production, Rock and Roll Over is one of Kiss' most consistent records. Two of the album's best tracks became hit singles -- the sleazy hard rocker Calling Dr. Love and an acoustic ballad that was originally intended for Rod Stewart, Hard Luck Woman (later covered by country star Garth Brooks). But like all other classic rock albums, the lesser-known material is often just as strong -- I Want You and Makin' Love became concert staples over the years, while Mr. Speed is one of the most underrated songs in Kiss' catalogue. Also included are the fan favorites Take Me, Ladies Room, Love 'Em and Leave 'Em, and the original version of See You in Your Dreams, which was later re-recorded for Gene Simmons' 1978 solo album.

    Little Death Shaker

    Stripped of all noise influences and focusing on straight-up songs, Little Death Shaker is a record evocative of late nights and dusty parking lots, long drives and boozy hookups. This is the work of a dude who's spent his youth and young manhood on tour and it comes through in both the music and the lyrics. Where Castanets' lyrics gave us Ray Carver-ian fragments and it's-what-you-leave-out-that-counts minimalism, here we see Raposa back from the battleground with stories to tell.



    This is the most lyric-heavy Raposa's been and it's also the most playful and humorous, and you get the feeling some of these songs would be the ones that would go down best near 2am at some weird sports bar dive in southeast Alabama/Iowa/Mississippi. (We can just see some big biker dude/fallen NASCAR star/Gary Busey lookalike sitting back-to-bar, Bud in hand, having a good-natured laugh over the punchline from Some of My Friends or the WTF premise of the Dan Reeder penned You'll Never Surf Again.)



    The record begins with fighting spirit. Allegiance comes on with a punch of electric guitar and Raposa singing I woke up feeling/bold as shit. It's his rowdiest and most confident song to date, a real knockabout that'll take you by surprise if you're used to Castanets. Up next the title track verges on Queen (Flash Gordon soundtrack?) and Some of My Friends is a barnburner with the ghosts old Sun Studios players holding court.



    Highlights are many. The dark-as-Skoal interstate roller Whippoorwill, the slowly ramping Some Kind of Fool, which rolls easy and pretty with backup vocals from Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent before building to a shitkicking rock 'n' roll peak where we find Raposa delivering some of his best and most racy lyrics, singing the very un-indie-rock, I could spend this good money wherever I care to/taste all the honies that I choose /lay myself down beside anyone's flower/all alive in the morning with the dew. It's a song about libertine freedom and heartbreak ignored and taking the bull by the horns and being, well, kind of a bastard.



    More highlights: Castanets collaborator Talia Gordon taking main vocals on You're Not Standing Like You Used To (Kate Wolf); the after-afterhours minor chord jam Stateline, Little Death Shaker's most ruckus track of all, a late-night spent trapped in the stripclub/rig cab/country bar/tour van/your own damn head. At 10 minutes it's a tale of drugs and wayward love, a real red-lit kind of aloneness, backed by a legit live crawl, with high and ghostly organ and distorted vocals crackling like a bad CB connection.



    With Meridian, Raposa and Houck bring back the vibe of Some Kind of Fool and take it on a humid trip through the deepest South, gators in the water, snakes in the sand, a stormhead looming over the sun-dappled river. When Raposa sings oh honey here comes the storm you can just FEEL the weather breaking.



    One of this record's real charms is you can close your eyes and see these 13 tracks played live; you can see the drummer leaning over his kit with his brushes (and sunglasses on?), the backup singers standing around the mic, beers in hand, eyes closed, swaying side to side, the lights crisscrossing the stage. Meridian is no different. You can see this band. You can see these people playing together, and in a world of records that bands can't duplicate live, it's crazy-refreshing!



    The album's closer, Allegiance 2, brings backlongtime Castanets collaborator Bridgit Jacobsen (nÉe Decook) for a hushed and barely-there apology. Oh lord be kind to me/after all these devils I have kissed. As a prayer, a shrug, and an exhausted offering, it's a fitting way to end an album so concerned with sin and vice. It's also a fitting end-introduction to this new band. So meet Raymond Byron and the White Freighters and their record Little Death Shaker. Here's to the new!
