    EZ Listening Muzak


    Gatefold Double-140g Limited Edition 'Simply Noir' Vinyl


    Do you know your fondues from your fon-dont's? Fear not spuds, DEVO and FUTURISMO bring you the perfect soundtrack to your space-age bachelor or bachelorette pad with 21 tracks of pure unhinged sophistication - DEVO's EZ Listening Muzak. Whether you're entertaining guests with a bout of cheese and wine by the fire or throwing the cocktail party of the century, these mutated muzak lounge versions of DEVO classics such as 'Whip It', 'Jocko Homo' and 'It's A Beautiful World' will be the perfect hors d'oeuvres for an evening of de-evolved fun.


    Originally created as pre-concert mood setters, popularity and sound board thievery led to EZ Listening Muzak being sold back in the early 80's as two fan club only cassettes.


    This dashing Gold Ink printed Gatefold release contains either 2 x 140g Limited Edition 'Simply Noir' Vinyl, and is sure to instill your musical vocabulary with a mutated etiquette that can only be learnt from the gentlemen of DEVO. Isn't it about time you took it EZ?

    Arepa 3000: A Venezuelan Journey Into Space

    [Los Amigos Invisibles] has taken the rhythmic sass in salsa, the bass-heavy fun in funk, and even the note-bending bile in acid-jazz, and mixed it all up to produce an infectious beat. [They] have put the joy back into dancing, sending a warm current into the cold alienating waters of industrial strength techno. - LA Weekly


    We're a dance band, says Jose Luis Pardo, the guitarist for Los Amigos Invisibles. Tuned into groove culture from Detroit to London to Tokyo -- thanks to the Internet and a busy tour schedule -- the Amigos began work on their new album AREPA 3000: A VENEZUELAN JOURNEY INTO SPACE with a disco sensibility. Admiring French DJ/producers the band sought a heavier house sound in contrast to the retro and lounge elements of THE NEW SOUND OF THE VENEZUELAN GOZADERA. The lounge thing sounds more Japanese, says Jose Luis. The house sound is fresher, the disco songs we do sound more like that. The album is more electronic in certain ways.

    Fiend Club Lounge

    The two unlikely worlds of punk rock and the martini-sipping lounge scene have collided as the Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass on a hip, swinging collection entitled Fiend Club Lounge.


    Officially endorsed by the Misfits and released via their Misfits Records label imprint, Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass: Fiend Club Lounge is a smooth ride through 11 Misfits classics, as performed by Sam Elwitt's Nutley, N.J., bred Nutley Brass.


    If Grandpa Munster had a band as a teenager it would have sounded like the Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass! said Misfits founding member Jerry Only. Fun for monsters of all ages.


    FranchÉ Coma, original guitarist for the Misfits, added: 'The Misfits meet the Nutley Brass: Fiend Club Lounge' is one of the best renditions of some of the best Misfits songs ever recorded. Any true, and I mean true, musician will appreciate the intricacies of the instrumentations on this record. It takes punk music to a different level. It shows us how anything is possible if you want to make it happen.


    The lounge-core tribute to the legendary horror-punk band was envisioned by the project's Producer, John Cafiero, who had been directing a Ramones DVD and was in touch with Elwitt for use of some of his music from The Ramones Songbook as Played by the Nutley Brass. Cafiero had discovered the Nutley Brass back in 1995 and after contacting Elwitt about the Ramones DVD, the concept of Fiend Club Lounge began to develop.


    Even legendary composers of the genre like Gert Wilden, Esquivel and the Jaguar God himself, Les Baxter would be proud of these Misfits classics, served with a twist and scientifically proven to soothe your road rage, said Cafiero.


    It's supposed to be fun and funny, Elwitt said. It's not supposed to replace or improve on Misfits recordings in any sense. It's supposed to complement them. Think of it as just another way to enhance your overall Misfits experience.

    Live At The Checkerboard Lounge 1981

    White & Black Vinyl


    On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon. Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Muddy Waters' club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform. It didn't take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part. It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Now, restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time.

    The Club Album Live From Yellow Lounge

    In May of 2015, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter gave a truly unique concert: rather than standing on stage in one of the world's renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in Berlin. Recorded in front of a standing-room only audience, this new 2-LP release includes popular works by Bach, Copland, Gershwin, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi and many more. Mutter is joined by Mahan Esfahani, Lambert Orkis and the Mutter Virtuosi

    Buzzz

    Brought together by their shared fascination of experimental music and noise, the San-Francisco-based loung-collage duo Tipsy is made up of Tim Digulla and David Gardner. In 1997 they released the retro-lounge themed Trip Tease which mixed up exotica and electronics with real instruments in a slickly surreal way. By lucky coindidence, it was released at the height of the breif lounge fad and turned out to be a surprise pop success, showing up in the background everywhere; obscure indie movie soundtracks, international soda and beer commercials and TV. Tipsy has finally assembled a much anticipated new album, Buzzz, more rhythmically oriented, less loop-heavy than before. Featuring quirky Japanese singer Coppe, Tipsy continues to push their pop wierdness even further here and with great results.

    Undercard

    Comprised of John Darnielle (the Mountain Goats) and Franklin Bruno (Nothing Painted Blue, the Human Hearts) The Extra Lens began as a potential home for any song John wrote that had a) more than three chords or b) a bridge. New songs for the group only happened when John figured he'd written something that Franklin might find clever or amusing.



    Recorded with Brian Paulson (Slint, Beck, US Maple) at the Rubber Room in Carrboro, North Carolina, and with Mitch Rackin (Excepter, Heavy Hands) at Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn, NY, Undercard is the first Extra Lens record to arrive as a full collaboration between songwriters. The recording method, however, persists: John plays guitar and sings, leaving Franklin to provide arrangements as the songs require: here sparing, here ornate; sometimes gentle, sometimes not. The Extra Lens now invite you to sit down, put your feet up, and enjoy the Undercard.

    One From The Heart

    Numbered, Limited Edition


    Tom Waits and Crystal Gale Create Magic Together on Waits' Most Accessible Outing


    Small Combo Band Provides Jazzy and Bluesy Support


    Stupendous Sonics: Music Largely Recorded Live on Studio Floor


    One From the Heart ranks among the best soundtracks in history. Essential for any Tom Waits or Crystal Gayle devotee, it sets an example of what's not only possible, but should be expected and demanded, when two likeminded artists collaborate. Heartstrings are tugged, passions kindled and lost, sentiments exchanged, skeletons dragged out of closets, seasons changed, romantic truisms cited. And its wide-open sound is supreme, the result of most tracks being recorded live in the studio, free of after-effects and interference.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP presents the Academy Award-nominated One From the Heart in stunning sonic relief. You'll be able to gauge the signature tones of the guitars and hear inside the cavity of Waits' piano. Perhaps most importantly, Gayle and Waits' voices now sound just feet away, with your room converted into the world's coolest late-night lounge. Spatial cues, background accents, and studio dimensions emerge with striking realism.


    Inspired by a track Waits cut with Bette Midler on his Foreign Affairs effort, One From the Heart overflows with simpatico chemistry, poignant contrast, elegant atmospherics, and awestruck intimacy. On their four vocal duets, Gayle and Waits inhabit the personas of a man and woman breaking apart yet sharing common bonds. Their singing plumbs emotional depths that traverse melancholy, sensuality, and understanding. Made before Waits' baritone turned into a deep, gravel-laden instrument, the songs are more smoke than whiskey, more piano-man empathy than hipster growler.


    Written by Waits, the music occupies a common ground between laidback small-combo jazz, lounge pop, and downbeat blues. Classy string orchestrations abet a crack ensemble comprised of saxophonist Terry Edwards, drummer Shelly Manne, pianist Pete Jolly, bassist Greg Cohen, and others. The arrangements seamlessly melt into both vocalists' leads, allowing every note-every piano clink, acoustic bass ripple, brushed snare drum-to register with utmost magnitude.


    Experienced on stunning soliloquy pieces such as Gayle's mournful ballad "Is There Any Way Out of This Dream?" and back-and-forth collaborative efforts like the breakup take "Picking Up After You," beautiful instrumentation, spacious production, and flawless vocal phrasing take hold. You can picture the broken dreams exiting out the side doors of the dim bars and abandoned houses that pepper the narratives. Renowned for his sad songs, Waits has never been in better form, the goodbye fare clicking with unflinching honesty and personality.

    I Believe

    Translucent Orange Colored Vinyl

    Limited Edition - 1000 Copies

    The third album, I Believe, was released in 2001, after which Haden took an extended break from the band, recording a solo album for Dreamworks Records (later released on his own Diamond Soul Recordings).


    "Strip most music of its fashionable, genre-specific accoutrements and there's precious little left. Except country, perhaps. It's with this in mind that Los Angelenos Spain go about their lovelorn business. There are no frills, no zeitgeist nods here, just the simplicity of the strum, the slide and the hushed confessions of Josh Haden - son of jazz bassist Charlie and disciple of the songwriter's old skool.


    "Three albums in, 'I Believe' is a substantial offering awash with humble entreaties and doe-eyed, lounge affectations. Sure, the moniker may flirt outrageously with Monsieur Schmaltz, but there really are some sweet, sweet sounds lurking beneath the initially perceived pretence. The slow-mo beauty of 'Mary' showcases Haden's almost electronic, pitch-perfect coo (and with all genre gimmicks gone, the voice has to be exact), while the self-explanatory, nu-prairie hum of 'You Were Meant For Me' betrays a romantic absolutism that Nick Cave would be proud of.

    Yours Dreamily

    The Arcs' debut album, Yours, Dreamily, will be released Friday, September 4 on Nonesuch Records. In anticipation of the release, "Stay in My Corner" was premiered on June 9 at NPR Music. Of the song, NPR Music's Stephen Thompson praises, " it's got a slinky, timeless feel, propelled with alluring ease by Auerbach's falsetto and a lush instrumental backdrop befitting The Arcs' roster." The Arcs will be touring in support of the album; details will be announced soon.


    The Arcs collaboratively wrote and recorded 13 tracks for Yours, Dreamily, with the musicians playing a large array of roles both vocally and instrumentally. Co-produced by Auerbach and Michels, the album was recorded in roughly two weeks through spontaneous, informal sessions across the country at the Sound Factory in Los Angeles, the Diamond Mine in Queens, Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, and in a lounge room at Electric Lady in Manhattan. Tchad Blake mixed the album on his horse farm in Wales.


    In advance of Yours, Dreamily, The Arcs recently released a 7-inch single. Inspired by the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao boxing match, the single includes the songs "Stay in My Corner" b/w "Tomato Can." "Outta My Mind," a second 7-inch and the first single being released to radio, will make its debut later in June of 2015.

    Def Leppard

    Def Leppard is the 11th studio album by British rock band Def Leppard. It's the band's first release since Songs from the Sparkle Lounge (2008), marking the longest gap between studio albums in their career. The 14-track album not only nods to their history, but it hints at their future. According to vocalist Joe Elliott, ''The name itself sums everything up. It's a misspelled nonsensical mad-looking two words.'' This is Def Leppard in 2015. This is rock 'n' roll. Let's go.


    REVIEW:

    First-rate melodic pop-metal. Def Leppard tracks like Let's Go,...All Time High and Broke 'n' Brokenhearted exude the band's classic mix of Seventies pomp-glam riffing, Eighties electro-shock rhythms and patented, tremendously stacked chorus vocal harmonies in a manner that's strikingly redolent of their past. But the album also finds the band moving beyond well-trod territory, as evidenced by the slinky pop-funk strut of Man Enough, the downtuned, acoustic psych-blues of Battle of My Own and the sleek New Wave isms of Invincible. - Rolling Stone

    The Invention Of Animals (Awaiting Repress)


    A Collection Of Out-of-print And Unreleased Live Recordings


    Limited Edition 180 Gram Vinyl


    The John Lurie National Orchestra featuring John Lurie, Billy Martin and G. Calvin Weston


    Billy Martin's Amulet Records have announced the release of The Invention of Animals by The John Lurie National Orchestra. The archival compilation assembles seven previously unreleased live and out-of-print studio recordings by the acclaimed musician, actor and visual artist John Lurie leading his early 1990s' trio with percussionists Billy Martin and G. Calvin Weston.


    The three of us got together to try and write stuff for my band The Lounge Lizards, but what happened between the three of us was magical. After about a year of playing live it really came together, says John Lurie. There is something so unique and beautiful about this music. I don't think there is anything else like it.


    Billy Martin adds: John and I share the idea that this is like someone discovered a field recording of a lost civilization. Some strange and beautiful tribe unlike any other known to man.


    The Invention of Animals opens with Flutter, one of four National Orchestra performances culled from the soundtrack of John Lurie's 1991 television series, Fishing With John. Also drawn from that same soundtrack are The Beast, Little and Ignore The Giant. The additional studio recording included here is the title track to the only official John Lurie National Orchestra album Men With Sticks released in 1993. Rounding out the collection are two previously unreleased live recordings. I Came To Visit Here For Awhile was preserved at the Threadwaxing Space in New York City on May 7, 1993. The album's centerpiece and title track, The Invention of Animals, running at 19-minutes-plus, was captured by highly regarded sound engineer Claudia Engelhart from a performance on February 12, 1994 in Thessaloniki, Greece.


    John Lurie first became known for his work in the late '70s leading the band The Lounge Lizards, which went on to make music for 20 years. During this time, Lurie recorded 22 albums and composed scores for over 20 movies, including Stranger than Paradise, Down by Law, Mystery Train, Clay Pigeons, Animal Factory and Get Shorty, which earned him a Grammy nomination. Lurie also starred in three films directed by Jim Jarmusch, as well as a host of other films. He wrote, directed and starred in the aforementioned cult classic Fishing with John, a series that is now part of The Criterion Collection. Lurie is also responsible for the incredible music of Marvin Pontiac. Lurie emerged onto the art scene in the spring of 2004, when he had his first painting exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery. Since then Lurie's work has been exhibited in esteemed galleries throughout the world. His solo museum exhibits include P.S.1. Contemporary Arts Center in New York, Musee Des Beaux-Arts De Montreal, the Musee d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean in Luxembourg and the Watari Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, who gave their entire museum over to the presentation of Lurie's work. Both the Wadsorth Athenaeum in Connecticut and The Museum of Modern Art in New York have acquired his work for their permanent collections.


    The Invention of Animals by The John Lurie National Orchestra features a painting by John Lurie as its cover art.

    Calendar Girl

    Import


    Jazz critic Will Friedwald has stated that Julie London's records were so popular in the 1950s mainly because she looked so drop-dead gorgeous on the album covers. The marketing hook behind Calendar Girl may just be the main example for those critical of London's musical career, since its sleeve has made it a prized collector's item. The famous wraparound cover depicts cheesecake shots of London posed for every month of the year, while original issues of the album included a more-than-suggestive insert photo of the singer stretched out in bed. While Friedwald's correct about London's physical beauty, he's wrong in suggesting that the vocalist didn't have the talent to go along with her looks. Like Chet Baker, Julie London had an extremely limited vocal range but she did the most with what she had, possessing a special knack for torch songs that cast her in the role of a woman constantly being destroyed by love in general and by men in particular. The cover concept of Calendar Girl is carried over from the concept album, which features a narrative of romance lost and found for each month of the year before ending with one final tune called The Thirteenth Month (which is illustrated by that insert picture of London in bed). Since there aren't quality standards for every month of the year, one of Calendar Girl's pleasures can be found in the numbers written especially for the album, particularly those penned by Bobby Troup, London's husband. The jazz-oriented Troup hit pay dirt with such fine compositions as Route 66, Daddy, and The Meaning of the Blues, but too few of his smart, witty songs have been widely recorded. Calendar Girl is a fun, if often bittersweet, ride and a must-have for fans of classic vocal pop and lounge music.

    The Very Special World of Lee Hazlewood

    Lee Hazlewood was a late bloomer. Following a meandering career as a disc jockey, producer, songwriter, label executive and solo artist, Hazlewood hit the jackpot at the ripe age of 37 with "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'," the song Nancy Sinatra took to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Its success convinced MGM Records that Hazlewood was a bankable star, and they signed him as an artist in his own right the same year. But as a self-described "non-singer" whose cult 1963 debut, Trouble Is A Lonesome Town, was little more than a happy accident, they'd perhaps gotten the wrong end of the stick where Lee was concerned.


    In three years on the label, Hazlewood delivered three albums and sundry odds and ends, beginning with 1966 album The Very Special World Of Lee Hazlewood. The LP found Hazlewood gunning-in as much as he ever did-for commercial success, blending country, pop, novelty, mariachi, and lounge music into something unusually of-the-moment.


    Lushly orchestrated and-like the album that preceded it-half-sung, half-spoken in a way that Hazlewood made all his own, the album collected solo versions of songs made famous by Sinatra and others ("Sand," "Boots," "So Long Babe," "Summer Wine"-included as a bonus duet with Suzi Jane Hokom) alongside some of his career-best solo compositions, among them the Morricone-like opener, "For One Moment." It's a record of extremes: "When A Fool Loves A Fool" is as light and throwaway as anything he ever laid down, while the wistful "My Autumn's Done Come" (sample lyric: "Let those I-don't-care days come in, I'm tired of holding my stomach in") is as raw and honest.

    Cayamo Sessions At Sea

    Between busy touring schedules and time spent
    creating and recording songs, artists rarely get the
    opportunity to spend time with other musicians they
    admire and respect. Occasionally, they bump into
    each other in hotel lobbies, backstage dressing rooms,
    or airport terminals; usually no more than a hurried
    conversation passes, perhaps a quick meal together,
    a wave and a nod then everyone is off to the next gig.
    Ships that pass in the night.



    For one week each year, this changes. Musicians and
    music fans board a cruise ship together, escape the
    winter cold, and sail away for a musical adventure
    called Cayamo. Once-in-a-lifetime collaborations begin
    the minute the ship leaves port. From bow to stern,
    port to starboard, on top deck and down below, around
    every corner and in every venue you'll find musicians
    who might never otherwise have a chance to meet
    teaming up to play old favorite tunes or even create
    new ones.



    In 2012, Cayamo veteran Buddy Miller decided to try
    to capture a few of these special moments. He brought
    along some recording gear and set up a studio in the
    ship's library where he and co-host Jim Lauderdale
    recorded episodes for their SiriusXM Outlaw Country
    Buddy & Jim Radio Show. Their debut episode with
    Lucinda Williams was recorded there.



    Buddy thought the radio show recordings sounded
    really good so, in 2014, he brought more gear, an
    engineer and some great musicians. Sixthman let him
    take over the Bliss Lounge where he set up a temporary
    recording studio between the lanes of the bowling
    alley. For two days and nights, guest artists came to
    record and fans came to watch. It was so much fun,
    they did it all again in 2015.



    For those fortunate enough to have experienced
    Cayamo, these tracks might bring back fond memories.
    For those yet to sail, consider these recordings a vacation
    postcard from Buddy Miller and his talented friends and
    a musical snapshot of their journey through song.

    20 Jazz Funk Greats

    Pressed On Limited Edition Green Colored Vinyl


    Mute are delighted to announce a limited edition green LP reissue
    of 20 Jazz Funk Greats, the landmark 1979 album from industrial
    music pioneers Throbbing Gristle.


    The impetus for the record apparently came about from Genesis
    P-Orridge's mum's request that the band record something
    "nice". The tame cover photo shows the nattily dressed band -
    white disco jacket, comfy slacks, mini-skirt - stood amid flowers
    on a clifftop. The chosen scene of natural beauty was Beachy
    Head, a notorious suicide spot.


    20 Jazz Funk Greats' cheerful breaching of lounge jazz and
    disco contains some of the band's prettiest moments on songs
    like the breathy "Hot on the Heels of Love". Similarly "Tanith"
    and "Exotica" are gentle interludes in which TG's usual jagged
    punctuations are kept to a minimum. You could be fooled into
    thinking this was indeed easy-listening industrial.


    Pitchfork wrote that "20 Jazz Funk Greats finds the band waking
    up from D.O.A's dark night of the soul and feeling curiously
    frisky. Snacking on not only the titular funk and jazz, the band
    also takes touristic zig zags through exotica, rock and disco",
    ultimately describing it as a "kitsch detour toward mutant disco".
    Uncut Magazine wrote that "musically, it turned away from the
    precipice; not exactly jazz and funk, but sublimating TG's noise
    elements within electronic rhythms and proto-exotica." Dusted
    Magazine described the album as "a deliberate attempt to toy
    with the ideas behind marketing strategy and the purpose of
    musical genres."


    Pitchfork ranked 20 Jazz Funk Greats at number 91 in its list of
    the 100 greatest albums of the 1970s. UK magazine Fact named
    it the best album of the 1970s, writing that "This album is a
    rupture. It's an open crack into the unpronounceable dimensions
    into which tumble important streams of 20th century pop, art
    and underground culture, to seethe around each other, mingling,
    festering, sprouting new and unpredictable forms which in turn
    would ooze out to infest vast sections of what comes after."
