    Madman Across The Water (Awaiting Repress)

    Madman Across the Water is driven by the sweeping string arrangements that gives the songs here a richly dark and haunting edge. The overall quality of the record is very high, particularly on character sketches Levon and Razor Face, as well as the melodramatic Tiny Dancer and the paranoid title track. Now on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. This title is one in a series of vinyl releases to mark Elton John's 50th anniversary in the music industry.

    Madman

    Sean Rowe has spent much of the last year traveling the country with just his guitar, performing in people's living rooms. "It's like I'm some kind of a bearded salesman," he says, "Going door to door but instead of vacuum cleaners I'm selling all these feelings that come with the songs. It's a really intense experience for listeners to have me there in their homes playing. They're not used to having a stranger show up, play music, drink their beer and eat their food. But I think that's how we're supposed to be. It only feels strange because we've made it that way."


    It is this same sense of unflinching connection that has shaped Rowe's extraordinary new album Madman. The singer, who The Wall Street Journal wrote "recalls the ecstatic intensity of late-'60s Van Morrison and stark subtlety of late-era Johnny Cash" has created a beautifully primal work. Madman is deliberately simple in both arrangement and composition. It is soul music in the purest and most literal sense, hypnotic rhythms, warmly distorted guitars and Rowe's incredible voice recalling a time, real or imagined, when music and people seemed
    distinctly more connected.


    The sound of Madman is influenced, in large part, by the hypnotic guitars of Delta blues. The influence is most apparent on the album's second track "Shine My Diamond Ring" with its guitar and stomping bass drum. "Desiree" is a raucous deconstructed take on early disco, with a pulsating bass, Nile Rogers-like guitar picking and a looser than ever Rowe singing with absolute abandon. But there are still the trademark ballads that first gained Rowe attention on his debut, Magic, showcases for the astonishing voice and honest emotional songwriting that continues to garner Sean Rowe much deserved acclaim.

    A Thing Called Divine Fits

    Divine Fits, the band comprised of Spoon's Britt Daniel, Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner and the New Bomb Turks' Sam Brown, has confirmed that its debut album, A Thing Called Divine Fits, will be released via Merge Records.



    A Thing Called Divine Fits was recorded from March-May of 2012 in a backyard studio in Los Angeles, CA. The band co-produced the album with Nick Launay and it clocks in at about 42-and-a-half minutes long. Roughly half the tracks are lead-sung by Dan and half by Britt while Alex Fischel plays keyboards like a madman throughout.



    Over the course of A Thing Called Divine Fits' 11 songs it covers such topics as the death of true love, hitchhiking, cocoa butter, emotional distance, what happens when the curtain drops, and Minneapolis, MN.

    1. My Love Is Real
    2. Flaggin a Ride

    Manifest Decimation (Awaiting Repress)

    Dallas band Power Trip play frantic crossover thrash that makes for amazing live shows. (They've toured, and are pals with, Trash Talk, and more than hold their own.) At any given time, whirling dervish Frontman Riley Gale can sound like Lemmy fronting Cro-Mags, Discharge, Exodus, or Nuclear Assault; other times, he locates a grizzlier tone that evokes guys wearing corpsepaint.


    On the quintet's huge-sounding eight-song debut LP Manifest Decimation on Southern Lord, they match the live intensity: The collection, which follows demos, 7's, and compilation appearances, finds the band easily filling 35 minutes with great riffs, catchy shout-along choruses, legit mosh parts, and brief ambient excurisions that don't take away from the overall intensity. The cover art, by Italian artist Paolo Madman Girardi, gives you an idea of that atmosphere, which includes samples about both death and Texas.

    The New Hovering Dog

    BJ Cole came to prominence in the early 1970s with the country rock outfit, Cochise. His signature pedal steel playing has marked numerous LPs including ones by T Rex, Elton John (Tumbleweed Connection and Madman Across the Water), Cat Stevens, Bjork, The Verve, Depeche Mode, Beck, Elvis Costello, David Gilmour, Emmylou Harris, Pet Shop Boys, Robert Plant, Scott Walker, and the list goes on. The man Sting once described as "the best pedal steel player in the world" is versed in many styles from pop, rock, jazz to experimental. His versatility is perhaps no better showcased than on his first solo album The New Hovering Dog; it combines poetry with orchestration and electronics with a strong cast of musicians from that era. Originally released in 1972 on United Artists, it is now available again on LP after 40 years, remastered and two bonus tracks added.

    Blue Healer

    Unkempt visionary, Squirrel Nut Zippers founder, former sideman for Jim Dickinson and Buddy Guy, self-proclaimed Arkansas Son-in-Law- Jimbo Mathus has lived many lifetimes, more than most of us could stomach. Now, Mathus is back with a new album, Blue Healer, recorded in Water Valley, Mississippi with Fat Possum & Big Legal Mess producer Bruce Watson.


    "It's the story of a man in a southern landscape who is swept insanely apart by internal and external winds," Mathus says of the new record. "He digs deeper and deeper into the very fabric of his reality, experiencing love and lust, despair, hope and sheer animal exhilaration on levels few ever do. He is tested in every way imaginable and achieves a sort of enlightenment - gains power and understanding of life's mysteries. Yet questions remain. He wonders if the struggle was worth it, or even real. Is he madman or sage? Con man or honest counsel? Is this autobiographical or fictional? Only the Blue Healer knows the answer to the great cosmic heebie-jeebie."

    London Calling (Awaiting Repress)


    Ranked 8/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Recorded in 1979 in London, which was then wrenched by surging unemployment and drug addiction, and released in America in January 1980, the dawn of an uncertain decade, London Calling is 19 songs of apocalypse, fueled by an unbending faith in rock & roll to beat back the darkness. Produced with no-surrender energy by legendary Seventies studio madman Guy Stevens, the Clash's third album skids from bleak punk (London Calling) to rampaging ska (Wrong 'Em Boyo) and disco resignation (Lost in the Supermarket).


    The album was made in dire straits too. The band was heavily in debt and openly at war with its record company. Singer-guitarists Joe Strummer and Mick Jones wrote together in Jones' grandmother's flat. Joe, once he learned how to type, would bang the lyrics out, Jones said. Then I'd be able to bang out some music while he was hitting the typewriter. Strummer, Jones, bassist Paul Simonon and drummer Topper Headon spent nearly three months rehearsing and demoing songs in a garage in the Pimlico section of London - with one light and filthy carpet on the walls for soundproofing, recalled Strummer in 1989. We felt that we were struggling, he said, about to slide down a slope or something, grasping with our fingernails. But Stevens was on hand for inspiration. He threw chairs around the room if he thought a track needed zapping up, according to Strummer. The album ends with Train in Vain, a rousing song of fidelity (unlisted on the back cover because it was added at the last minute) that became the sound of triumph: the Clash's first Top 30 single in the U.S. - Rolling Stone

    Still Rock and Roll to Him: Joel Toughens Up and Increases the Animosity, Sarcasm, Confidence, and Rock on 1980 Set


    Accessible and Angry: Phil Ramone's Stalwart Production Bristles With Boldness, Raucousness, and Directness on Definitive Mobile Fidelity Reissue


    Chart-Topper Certified Seven-Times Platinum: Includes "You May Be Right" "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," "Don't Ask Me Why"


    Elvis Costello long had a reputation for being the "angry young man." With apologies to the former Declan McManus, he had nothing on Billy Joel's Glass Houses. Fed up with inexcusable critical backlash and believing he'd still not been regarded as a serious artist, Joel ratcheted up the angst on the 1980 set that, oh, by the way, happened to sell another seven-million-plus copies and top the Billboard charts. Revenge is sweet.


    An integral part of Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, Glass Houses is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI. Honing in on producer Phil Ramone's radio-tailored albeit looser, straightforward production, this edition opens up the previously veiled soundstages, spotlights the clean yet raucous arrangements, and decongests the imaging so that every note comes to the fore. Thanks to the extra-wide grooves and meticulous remastering, Joel's urgency and temperament have never sounded so vibrant.


    In addition to firing shots at detractors, Joel further solidifies his reputation as a pop maestro on the hit "Don't Ask Me Why" and mellow classic "C'etait Toi (You Were the One)," each replete with sparkling structures and shimmering melodies. Throughout, he dials down the grand gestures, focusing more on an attitude and directness. At the time, Joel was conscious of the punk movement, and seems inspired to follow that genre's preference for simplicity, frankness, and irritability. The album's legendary artwork-the singer preparing to toss a brick through the windows of his house-is a metaphor for Joel shattering his image as a cocktail-lounge pop crooner.


    Such changes are evident in the now-signature "You May Be Right," a hard-rocking and scathing rebuttal to a romantic partner on which Joel embraces the identity of a tough-skinned madman that won't stop at anything. He inhabits the role with convincing theatrics, his voice mixing pushiness, smugness, self-evident humor, and cool that fits the resistive tone of the record's songs. Glass Houses is Joel's megaphone for stubborn independence, dogged assertiveness, and blustery confidence.


    It's also an announcement of artistic intent, a statement that's simultaneously catchy and barbed, well-crafted and rowdy. And it succeeds on all levels, bringing to commercial pop-rock a brashness and grit often absent from fare that sticks in your head for days. Joel would never be seen the same way again.

    #1 Damn Yankees Album


    Ted Nugent - Tommy Shaw (Styx) - Jack Blades (Night Ranger) & Michael Cartellone (Accept/ Lynyrd Skynyrd)


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso


    First Time Gatefold Cover Art Presentation


    Featuring Four Top Chart Hits: High Enough, Come Again, Coming Of Age, & Runaway


    Damn Yankees were a superstar collective featuring hard-rockin' guitar master Ted Nugent, pioneer prog-rock guitarist Tommy Shaw from Styx, the multi-talent Night Ranger's Jack Blades on bass and drummer Michael Cartellone from hard rockers Accept. Together these four statesmen of hard rock developed a successful formula that broke out in the early 1990's while delivering a huge debut release with their self-titled smash Damn Yankees.


    The ten song masterwork has since been a favorite album of choice in the hearts and minds of rock music lovers for many years now. Featuring the stellar dynamic dual vocals from Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades, the mind-bending guitar work from the Motor City Madman Ted Nugent, and Michael Cartellone's powerful, drum work, this powerful quartet hit the top of the charts with their mega-double platinum Damn Yankees. As classic rock time has been good to them, the album firmly places them as one of hard rock's most popular debut releases of all time.


    Jam-packed with four hit singles and six unforgettable album tracks, the Damn Yankees LP kept the rockers all over the radio dial and packing in concert arenas for several years. Who could forget the amazing power ballad High Enough, more chart-toppers like the rockin' Coming of Age and follow-up champions Runaway and Come Again.

For this special anniversary edition, we have pressed it on impeccable 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl and mastered it from the original Warner Bros tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, CA.

    Julia With Blue Jeans On

    Since January 2010, Spencer Krug has used Moonface as a venue for home-recorded instrumental and
    conceptual experimentation, expanding the ideas he developed collaboratively with Wolf Parade, Sunset
    Rubdown, and Frog Eyes. Releases under this moniker have come quickly, each distinct from the other. The
    Dreamland EP and Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I'd Hoped were conceptual excursions merging
    instrumental and thematic fixations. After moving from Montreal to Helsinki, Krug teamed up with the
    Finnish band Siinai to create a lush rock record-2012's Heartbreaking Bravery-driven by the dark despair
    of a breakup. Staying in Helsinki, Krug set off on yet another creative departure, driven by a rediscovery of
    love and a reconsideration of the Moonface persona he'd created for himself. The quietly stunning Julia with
    Blue Jeans On is the fourth Moonface release, bringing a degree of intimacy and self-reflection unlike
    anything Krug has produced to date.


    There are only two sonic elements on Julia: Spencer Krug's voice and his piano. Richly recorded, they interact
    seamlessly with one another. On the opening track "Barbarian," the piano unfolds with the hypnotic energy
    of Keith Jarrett's Koln Concert, Krug's right hand doubling his vocal melody. On the closing track "Your
    Chariot Awaits," Krug's voice recedes after a minute as the piano swells for an extended showcase with
    modern classical undertones. After nearly a decade, across a number of guises, we are well-acquainted with
    Krug's inimitable town-crier vocals; on Julia, we are introduced to a facet of his musical skill that feels
    conservatory-trained. This is Krug as singer-songwriter, moving beyond star poses to a vision that is at once
    more elegant and comfortable.


    Or, in Krug's own language, on "Barbarian II": "I have chewed through my beautiful narrative." Much of Julia
    is taken with this chewing. "Love the House You're In" opens by masquerading as self-pity, with a statement
    that reads like a press release from someone who's given up. "I regretfully withdraw my offer to try and
    improve myself," Krug gently sings, establishing a self-reflexive foundation upon which he builds the album's
    most universal, humanistic sentiment, and which he delivers via its most soaring melody.


    Purposeful self-evaluation is one tactic for reinvention, but as Krug illustrates on Julia's title track, everyday
    occurrences can prove transformative as well. The sight of a woman, clad in denim, briefly visible at the
    bottom of a staircase, he learns, is capable of "obliterating everything I've ever written down." "Julia" is an ode
    in the classical sense, pivoting around the beauty inherent in the most simple, taken-for-granted sights. Krug
    acknowledges this, opening the song by admitting that "it's a madman's game, making the commonplace
    unreal." What he leaves out in this admission, however, is the key to the countless charms of Julia with Blue
    Jeans On: by expertly playing this ridiculous game, he can erase the madness that spawned it.

    Self-Titled Album Made Nugent And His Gonzo Guitar A Rock Icon!


    There was a moment, in 1975 to be exact, when Ted Nugent was taken very seriously. As a musician. Before he decided to become whatever it is that he is now. ... Let's think back to 1975 when Ted was just a sex-crazed rock star who made a killer self-titled debut solo record that has now been remastered and reissued as a gatefold, by Chad Kassem's Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings. While his songwriting interests have never really changed, these were the best takes on all those ideas that Nugent would from this point on build his career on. ... on Ted Nugent his guitar riffs were never sharper, his playing never less indulgent. This is a record where even the inner cuts like 'Just What the Doctor Ordered' and 'Queen of the Forest' were good to great. - Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2014


    We were fortunate with this one. Fortunate you say? How so? Well for starters, the late and lauded mastering engineer George Marino at Sterling Sound mastered and cut the original 1975 release of Ted Nugent. Almost 40 years later, after some digging by George's protege, Ryan Smith, on behalf of this Analogue Productions reissue - lo and behold - George's mastering notes resurfaced as well as the original analog tape masters.


    With the release of Ted Nugent, the self-proclaimed Motor City Madman and god of gonzo guitar became not just a star, but one of rock 'n' roll's icons. The songs Motor City Madhouse and Just What The Doctor Ordered would become two of many of Ted's road anthems. These and the other 10 monster tracks on Ted Nugent were clear evidence that Ted was an artist to be reckoned with.


    Ted Nugent still likes to reflect back on what his critics were saying as he put his band, the Amboy Dukes, to rest and started the next phase of his career-one that would be under his own vision, his own direction and most importantly, his own name.


    I remember some of the more creative writers of the ilk claimed it would be 'the final nail in my coffin' - quote, unquote, Nugent says with a redemptive laugh. I knew better.


    The mention of Ted's name elicits different reactions from rock fans today in different parts of the country. Nods of familiarity on both coasts, and clenched fists and knowing grins in the vast Midwest and South. He's sold millions of albums. Rock radio couldn't play enough of him - and neither could promoters, who made him the hardest-working and top-grossing gunslinger of the mid- and late-'70s. While most other rockers posed with their sleek Stratocasters and Les Pauls, there was Nugent, whipping his mane of hair around his head as he cranked out sound on his big Gibson Birdland, a hog of a guitar with rich, thick and creamy tones - clearly not something to be trusted to amateurs. But in Nugent's hands it screamed, squealed and cried, providing a vivid 3-D voice for the monster crunch of Stranglehold, the menacing stomp of Stormtroopin and the fiery boogie of Hey Baby, Motor City Madhouse and Snakeskin Cowboys.


    We feel this is Ted's finest recording by far. And here, you'll hear this classic more clearly and vividly than ever before. This reissue was remastered by Smith in the late George Marino's mixing room at Sterling Sound using Marino's VMS 80 lathe and an ATR 102 tape machine modified by Mike Spitz-the only one of its kind in the world.. Then this 200-gram vinyl beauty was pressed by Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world's finest LPs, where it was plated for vinyl by Gary Salstrom, QRP's master plating technician and general manager. The power burned into these grooves is difficult to find anywhere else this side of the Atlantic, and indeed it remains a rare commodity anywhere in the world.


    As Ted himself proclaims: If anyone wanted to know what rock 'n' roll was all about, this is the only album they'll need.

    Disconnect

    TV Ghost's third full-length for In The Red, Disconnect is a journey to the center of dreams. The Lafayette, Indiana, band displays a newfound maturity, incorporating churning rhythms and psychedelic drone into a lush torrent of gaseous keys, sprawling guitars and eerie melody. Think Porcupine-era Echo and the Bunnymen and Tago Mago-era Can run through a Cure Pornography blender.


    "TV Ghost's 2009 debut LP, Cold Fish, is a maelstrom-10 hectic songs ripped out in 25 minutes. Stuffed to the seams with wiry guitars, trembling keyboards, crashing beats, and Tim Gick's mad-man warble, it has the creepy tension of a post-punk haunted house where the Cramps, the Scientists, or Pere Ubu might leap out from the shadows at any moment. The band deftly balances precision and abandon-every moment sounds lunatic and unhinged, yet no track collapses into complete anarchy.


    "That abandon has subsided a bit on Mass Dream, which doubles the length of its predecessor despite having only one more track. That's by design-Gick says that his intent was to "space things out more, let the songs breathe." And while I miss Cold Fish's farther-flung moments, the band has countered that loss with songs that are deeper and more open. Now, along with all the post-punk echoes rattling around, unexpected reference points pop up. At times I hear the enervated drama of Echo & the Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch, or the stridency of Ian Svenonius during his Nation of Ulysses days. And TV Ghost prove as adept at stark dread as they are at fevered bedlam...."

    Demon (Out of Stock)

    Continuing the storytelling tradition the band are acclaimed for, Gazpacho return in 2014 with their new studio album Demon.


    Based on the mad ramblings on a manuscript left behind by a mystery tenant in an apartment in Prague, Demon tells the tale of a dark force moving through history. The album delves deep within the demon that possessed the inhabitant and explores the evil he has caused and all that he is capable of.


    Written over two years, the band have described Demon as the 'most complicated and strange album Gazpacho has ever made' and whether the manuscript is truly the work of an obsessed madman or an urban legend it has certainly provided the basis for an interesting twist on a concept album.
