Legrand Jazz (Awaiting Repress)Numbered Limited Edition 100% Analog 180-Gram Vinyl LP!
Limited To Only 3000 Numbered Copies!
Features Performances By John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Herbie Mann, Bill Evans & More!
In 1958, a young, successful French composer-arranger with a major infatuation on American jazz, worked his way to New York and convinced the very best players of the time to record an album of largely jazz standards. Michel Legrand would go on to win numerous prizes and accolades (3 Oscars, 5 Grammies, 2 Palmes D'or, etc.), but little of what followed matched the sheer brilliance of Legrand Jazz.
Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Ben Webster, Phil Woods and practically every other session man in town signed up for sessions with Legrand to record his idiosyncratic arrangements of standards (Django, Don't Get Around Much Anymore, Night in Tunisia, etc.). Instead of regurgitating then current bop styles, he reinvented the very nature of orchestral jazz band repertoire to make a unique and forward-looking statement on the genre.
The sound of Impex's all-analog LP preserves the wide soundstage of late 50's Columbia recordings while creating intimate spaces between players on the stage for maximum definition. This rare, highly-praised recording has never sounded as good as it does now. Go big with Legrand Jazz.
Legrand Jazz was greeted by an enthusiastic review in the magazine Down Beat. Dom Cerulli awarded it five stars out of a possible five.

DevotionFeeling lonely tonight? Turn off the TV and lower the lights. Baltimore duo Beach House have returned with their sophomore full length entitled Devotion. Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand have written 11 delicate pop tunes about love, feeling, and, of course, devotion. Their new album is a surefire antidote to the winter blues. The recording is crisper, the songs are fuller. This is a band that is taking the pop duo format to the limit. The organs, slide guitars and reverb are still there, but Beach House lay out some new sounds for their newest offering.1. Wedding Bell

Depression CherryBeach House is Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally. We have been a band for over a decade living and working in Baltimore, MD. Depression Cherry is our 5th full-length record and was recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana from November '14 through January '15. This time period crossed the anniversaries of both John Lennon's and Roy Orbison's death.
In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.1. Levitation

BloomBloom is the fourth full-length album by Beach House. Like their previous releases, Beach House (2006), Devotion (2008) and Teen Dream (2010), it further develops their distinctive sound yet stands apart as a new piece of work. The landscape of Bloom was largely designed on the road, between the countless sound checks and myriad experiences during two years of touring. Throughout this period, melodies, chords, rhythms, words and textures surfaced in moments of their own choosing. These spontaneous ideas were later gathered and developed in Baltimore, MD where the band members Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand live and work.
Bloom was then recorded in late 2011 over a period of seven weeks at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, TX and mixed for another two at Electric Lady in NC. The band co-produced the record with Chris Coady. Bloom is meant to be experienced as an album. A singular, unified vision of the world. Many songs were omitted or dropped because they lacked a place within our vision for this album, notes Scally. Though not stripped down, the many layers of Bloom are uncomplicated and meticulously constructed to ensure that there is no waste. Each chord and melody performs its role to form a whole.
The songs have depth and reveal themselves in new ways through repeated listenings. As a complete work, Bloom transcends the banality of simple emotions and arrives at a realm of honesty and complexity. It soberly reveals how frightening and temporary, yet beautiful, our existence is. It creates an honest reflection of death, as it must to relate to life. To this Legrand adds, Bloom is a journey. For me, it is about the irreplaceable power of imagination as it relates to the intense experience of living. A bloom is only temporary, a fleeting vision of life in all of its intensity and color, beautiful even if only for a moment. 2LP pressing with expanded outer sleeve in glow in the dark in, four inner sleeves and MP3 coupon.1.

B-Sides and RaritiesThis compilation contains every song Beach House - aka Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand - has made that does not exist on one of their albums. The band explains:
When we announced that we were releasing a B-sides and rarities album, someone on Twitter asked, "B-sides record?Why would Beach House put out a B-sides record? Their A-sides are like B-sides." This random person has a point. Our goal has never been to make music that is explicitly commercial.Over the years, as we have worked on our 6 LPs, it wasn't the "best or most catchy songs that made the records, just the ones that fit together to make a cohesive work. Accordingly, our B-sides are not songs that we didn't like as much, just ones that didn't have a place on the records we were making.
The oldest song is "Rain in Numbers" and was recorded in 2005, during the summer when we formed the band. We didn't have a piano, so we asked our friend if we could use his, which was pretty out of tune. We used the mic that was on the four-track machine to record the piano and vocals. It was originally the secret song on our self-titled debut.
The next couple of songs are from late 2008. We were so excited about "Used to Be" that we quickly recorded it and put it on a 7" for our fall tour with the Baltimore Round Robin. The same session begat our cover of Queen's "Play the Game" for a charity compilation benefiting AIDS research; we will continue to donate all profits from the song to that charity. As fans of Queen, we thought it would be fun and ridiculous to try to adapt their high-powered pop song into our realm. These songs were recorded at the same studio where we made Devotion.
There are a bunch of songs written and recorded in the 2009-2010 window. "Baby" was written and recorded in October 2009 with our friend Jason Quever. "10 Mile Stereo"was recorded during the Teen Dream session in July 2009.Since we used tape, we often slowed the tape way down to create effects while recording, which led to "10 Mile Stereo(Cough Syrup Remix)."
"White Moon" and "The Arrangement" were both songs that we didn't believe fit on Teen Dream. "White Moon" originally appeared on our iTunes live session. Since that was recorded and mixed very hastily, we have remixed it to better match our current aesthetics. We have also remixed and included the version of "Norway we did at that same session. We wrote and recorded "I Do Not Care for the Winter Sun" during a break between tours and released it on the internet for free,unmastered. Well, it's finally been mastered1. Chariot

Beach House (Out Of Stock)Beach House's self-titled debut album is now back on vinyl! Originally released in 2006, Beach House felt like a personal secret. With zero expectations, strategy or plans for the future, Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand laid nine tracks to tape over a short span in Baltimore City. The outcome was something extremely intimate and organic.
On their debut, the band established a distinct sound containing thrift store keyboards, organ beats, woozy slides, accidents and what would becomem Legrand's signature husky vocals. This would be the beginning of a sound that continues to grow and morph through their consecutive releases Devotion, Teen Dream, Bloom, and beyond.1. Saltwater
