Ladies Of The Canyon'
Ladies Of The CanyonJoni Mitchell's third release found her moving away from the wistful folk of her debut and Clouds, branching out into the progressive pop and jazz elements that would define her best work. The bright, poppy Big Yellow Taxi, the album's single, is here, as is her epoch-defining Woodstock, a soulful, stirring song about the 1969 rock festival that was later covered by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. But the material on Ladies Of The Canyon is uniformly strong, demonstrating the mature style and vision that made her one of the leading voices of the '70s. Ladies Of The Canyon was Mitchell's first classic album, one that helped pave the way for its watershed successor, Blue.1. Morning Morgantown

What A Beautiful PlaceSince arriving on London racks in the summer of 1970, Catherine HoweÆs debut album has been unavailable in its original format. Less than 20 LP copies survived Reflection RecordsÆ demise, and the album sat in the can until NumeroÆs 2007 CD issue. Produced by the legendary jazz pianist Bobby Scott, this orchestral-folk master stroke has once again been set to lacquer, remastered and restored directly from the original master tapes specifically for this deluxe vinyl release. Gatefold package includes replica LP art and complete annotation on the sessions and history of this forgotten Brit-folk treasure.

Wounded RhymesProduced by Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn & John and recorded in Stockholm, Wounded Rhymes is the follow up to Lykke Li's critically-acclaimed debut, Youth Novels. Channeling the demise of The Shangri-La's Leader of the Pack, women under the influence, ladies and gentlemen of the canyon, a Kung-fu Marianne Faithful, and an armed Nancy Sinatra on peyote, Lykke Li has created a ten song album that sounds like no other. The record is packed full of pounding, voodoo drums, girl group gang vocals, sparkling guitar lines, woozy keyboards, love unrequited, hope reignited and her own very powerful voice, sounding bigger and bolder than ever before.1.

Greasepaint SmileThe unreleased second album by an original lady from the canyon. Recorded and recanted in 1969, Greasepaint Smile is more assured than its self-titled, Tetragrammaton-issued predecessor. Weinberg's finger-picked acoustic is layered over distant drumming, while her gravel-pit voice evokes life, love, and mortality. Fellow Torontonian Neil Young sears "Houses" with his signature fuzz-tone, casting chaos over the beautiful ballad, while J.D. Souther, Kenny Edwards, and Nils Lofgren, pick up the slack. Masterfully produced by David Briggs, Greasepaint Smile has climbed out of the canyon and is bound for every turntable east of the 405.1. What You Call It

Wayfaring Strangers: Lonesome HeroesThe standard route for popular music, songwriter to publisher to label to artist, survived the '60s only to be overrun by a generation of folkies agog at giants strumming in the rearview. They were inspired by iconoclasts from Charley Patton to Woody Guthrie, artists entirely reliant on one guitar, one voice, and ones own words. But our heroes were not the agrarian luddites of yesterfolk. They cheered when Dylan plugged in and were rapt when Lennon and McCartney modernized songcraft, making the studio process justas important to song creation as setting the chords and words down.
The resultant work wasnt as readily reduced to words on paper as the Broadside pages that preceded them, success relied heavily on the way these songs were captured and transmitted: the sound of the room, the turn of a phrase, the odd way a piano got miced, or the way a guitar fell perfectly out of tune. As long as the end result was somber, dark, and meditative, it didnt matter if it was a conscious choice or a happily unhappy accident.
Each of our lonesome heroes began his journey from a wildly divergent place. Some of the stops may been similar, but each was made in different ways at different times for different reasons. All these travelers somehow found their ultimate destination on this disc. From artists who never played one professional gig to those that never stopped playing professionally, whose only shared experience is a journey set upon with no known end, sharing their thoughts, emotions and dreams with a lonely few along the way.
Wayfaring Stranger: Lonesome Heroes is the male singer/songwriter companion to Numero 008, Wayfaring Strangers: Ladies From The Canyon and Numero 018, Wayfaring Strangers: Guitar Soli.
Features 17 rare tracks by folk unknowns Jim Schoenfeld, Jim Ransom, Richard Smyrnios, Tucker Zimmermann, Kieran White, Les Moore, Rob Carr, Jack Hardy, George Cromarty, Jay Bolotin, Tony Trosley, Roger Lewis, Tim Ward, David Kaufmann, John Villemonte, Bob Brown and Robb Kunkel.

Back To Forever (Awaiting Repress)Since the release of her critically acclaimed 2010 debut album 'Catching a Tiger', expectation has been steadily growing for the hugely talented, enigmatic rock-singer's follow up. 'Back To Forever' is Lissie's 2nd studio studio album.
Produced by Garret Jacknife Lee (REM, Bloc Party, Snow Patrol) in Topanga Canyon LA, the record sees Lissie return on blistering form, writing a collection of stunningly frank and beautifully crafted tracks showcasing her captivating and heartfelt voice which has never sounded better.
Lissie grew up in Rock Island, Illinois, near the Mississippi River, speaking her mind and writing songs from an early age. Her full-length debut, 'Catching a Tiger' which was co-produced by Bill Reynolds of Band of Horses and Jacquire King (Kings of Leon) was released in 2010 and won her widespread critical acclaim. Festival performances (including Glastonbury, iTunes Festival, Bonnaroo, Coachella and Lollapalooza) television appearances and film/TV song placements followed. Along the way, Lissie also released a live CD/DVD of her sold-out show at London's Shepherds Bush Empire, racked up more than five-million cumulative views for her live videos of songs like Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance', Kid Cudi's 'Pursuit of Happiness' and Metallica's 'Nothing Else Matters', collaborated with cult hip-hop artists Schoolboy Q and ASAP Rocky for their hit track 'Hands on the Wheel' and developed her own brand of special edition Mezcal.1.

I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now (Awaiting Repress)Got at Girl starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Dan "The Automator" Nakamura - are thrilled to announce the release of I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now, on Bulk Recordings. The pair's enthralling debut album, sees Nakamura - whose innumerable, inimitable credits include influential production (Kool Keith/Dr. Octagon, Gorillaz) and membership in such visionary collaborations as Deltron 3030, Lovage, and Handsome Boy Modeling School - and Winstead - known for her work in the films Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, The Spectacular Now, and next seen in Kill the Messenger - sweetly detached vocal delivery and nuanced lyricism.
Winstead and Nakamura first crossed paths while both worked on 2010s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, the actor acting and the musician contributing to the score. Winstead - who counts Lovage's Music To Make Love To Your Old Lady By as "one of my favorite albums of all time" - approached Nakamura after a cast and crew dinner to let him know she was a big fan, assuming that would be that. "About a year later, Dan came up to me at the premiere and said, 'We should do something sometime,'" Winstead says. "I was like, okay! I would love to! I didn't think it was real."
Right from the jump, the two seemingly disparate artists found they were both surfing similar waves of inspiration. Each were especially enthused by the daft, dewy and even slightly degenerate sounds of 1960s French pop, that uniquely Gallic soufflÉ of girl group soul, cafÉ jazz, lush arrangements and groovy eroticism.
"It was a meeting of the minds," says Nakamura. "A kindred spirit kind of thing." He sent a skeletal track to Winstead, suggesting she begin thinking of songwriting in terms of character and story. For the nascent lyricist, the task came with no little pressure. Winstead and Nakamura soon commenced writing together, collaborating on lyrics as they learned more about each other's creative strengths and interests.
"I've had the fortune of working with a lot of very talented people," Nakamura says. "When it's right, it's right. That makes it work really easily. Working with Mary is like working with Del (The Funkee Homosapien) or working with Damon (Albarn) - it's really natural. It just works."
I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now is surprisingly seamless, a perfectly realized union of atmospheric ambience and ambitious songcraft. The Automator is of course a master of genre subversion and experimental futurism, effortlessly transmogrifying hip-hop, psychedelia, found sounds, and all manners of pop and world music with his singular taste for prolix wordplay, multiple personas and conceptual adventure. For Got A Girl, he has assembled a rich, enveloping sound world all its own, with hints of Laurel Canyon folk, yacht rock, and sunshine pop stylized and synthesized through sumptuous arrangements, intricate electronics, and unfettered melodic invention. The sonic landscape calls up far flung locales both real and imagined, knit together by restless grooves, elastic dubby beats, and Winstead's complex characterizations.
