Music By Rodgers & Hammerstein
Multiple Award Winning 1965 Soundtrack
The Sound of Music is the final collaboration between the composer Richard Rodgers and the lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II and one of their most famous collaborations. A lot of the songs from the musical have become standards, like Edelweiss, Do-Re-Mi and My Favorite Things. The story about the Austrian woman who is sent to a villa to be the governess of the Trapp Family during the second world war became known as a great Broadway production in 1959, winning different awards. The movie adaption from 1965 reached an even bigger audience and is even now as popular as ever. One of the reasons for its popularity are the sing-along tracks that are part of the fantastic soundtrack. Shortly after releasing the 1965 film musical Oscar Hammerstein died of cancer. But even now decades later the music lives on in the countless reproductions of the musical and the many artists who performed all these classic songs.
The musical, movie and soundtrack of The Sound of Music received many awards, including multiple Academy, Tony and Golden Globe Awards. The play also gained recognition by being listed in numerous top film lists all over the world.

Making Movies (45 RPM) (Pre-Order)
Dire Straits Expand Musical Framework And Come Into Own On Making Movies: Co-Produced By Jimmy Iovine, Thematic Album Soars With Personal Songwriting And Epic Arrangements
Cinematic Landscapes And Intricate Passages Sound Sublime: Mobile Fidelity 45RPM 2LP Pressing Of Making Movies Mastered From Original Master Tapes, Features Audiophile Dynamics
Bruce Springsteen Pianist Roy Bittan, Mark Knopfler's Guitar Playing, And Passionate Performances Turn Making Movies Into A Classic: Includes Romeo And Juliet, Tunnel Of Love, Solid Rock
Making Movies marks a magnificent turning point in Dire Straits' career. Considered by many fans to be the group's most complete album, the 1980 set witnesses leader Mark Knopfler greatly expanding his songwriting palette and setting his storytelling amidst more complex, involving arrangements. Dire Straits also benefits from crucial contributions from Bruce Springsteen pianist Roy Bittan and the departure of rhythm guitarist David Knopfler. The songs spark with a mÉlange of poetry, passion, and cohesion that engages the senses and begs to be experienced again and again.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Making Movies breathes with reference-caliber airiness, spaciousness, dynamics, and separation. Produced by Jimmy Iovine and Knopfler, the record - which contains many Springsteen-esque elements - features the cleanliness and clarity that have long been Dire Straits trademarks. The extra-wide 45RPM grooves on this edition provide previously unattainable detail, information, and soundstaging. This is what audiophile recordings are all about.
You know you're in the presence of sonic greatness as soon as the first few seconds of the opening Tunnel of Love pass, as the introductory passage built on organ and piano - new additions to Dire Straits' palette - intertwine with the unmistakable coil-spring twang of Knopfler's guitar. The three-dimensional, full-bodied presentation of the latter instrument on this Mobile Fidelity LP is alone worth the price of admission. Crisp, rich, and balanced, the analog sound brings Knopfler's Fender Vibrolux and Music Man HD130 amplifiers into your room. The romanticism of Bittan's piano, precision timekeeping of drummer Pick Withers, and steady roll of bassist John Illsley come across with similar potency, scale, and verve.
Always more about the whole than the sum of their individual parts, Dire Straits demonstrate that while Knopfler is the lynchpin, this record is a true band effort. Bittan's role cannot be overstated. His melodicism poetically complements Knopfler's subtle staccato rhythms and more than makes up for the exit of David Knopfler. Expansive and cinematic, the aptly titled Making Movies puts a premium on interrelated subjects (love, relationships, heartbreak) and deep-seated emotions that play out in heartfelt lyrics, intense singing, and epic frameworks. Everything clicks.
The album's power isn't lost on Iovine, who later told Rolling Stone: The right people were in the room together. It really was making a record in the pure sense of the term. The whole thing sounds like one song. But you what that is? That's the writing, the guy who wrote it. He wrote the album like that; he wanted to make the album like that.
Indeed, the first five tracks - Tunnel of Love, Romeo and Juliet, Skateaway, Expresso Love, Hand in Hand - comprise a mini-suite united by theme, harmony, and spirit. Every member of the newly configured Dire Straits has a say in the shaping of the material. There's not a note out of place. Iovine and Knopfler's standout production puts it over the top.

Expect The BestHamilton and Thomas excel at setting heartbroken lyrics to addictively catchy melodies. - All Music
....this two-person country-tinged-dream-pop band have a steady, velvety sound that you just want to wander over to on a lazy weekend. - GQ
Seven years in, Widowspeak remain purveyors of mood. They're an outfit ever preoccupied with the influence of place and the passage of time on personal experience: the way vivid memories can feel like movies or dreams. Existing In a sonic overlap of somber indie rock, dream pop, downtrodden shoegaze,slow-core and invented cowboy grunge, Widowspeak use familiar aesthetics as a narrative device, a purposeful nostalgic backdrop for songs that ask,How Did we get here? Expect the Best, their fourth for Brooklyn's Captured Tracks,sees Widowspeak finding balance between opposing forces: darkness and light, quiet and loud, tension and calm.
Written while singer and songwriter Molly Hamilton and lead guitarist Robert Earl Thomas were living in Tacoma, WA after previous stints in upstate New York and Brooklyn, so much moving around -- specifically the move back to the place she grew up -- was the catalyst for a record concerned with self examination and the sense of dread that comes from feeling adrift (Dog).Whether navigating the anxieties of the digital age (Expect the Best), struggling for motivation (When I Tried), or critiquing wanderlust and aspiration(The Dream), the songs recognize there's no going back in time. Hamilton's Lyrics explore the space between regret and anticipation, reconciling the desire to dwell with a need to expect the best, even as the best seems unlikely.
Although Widowspeak's previous two records -- Almanac (2013) and All Yours(2015) -- were conceived as a duo, Expect the Best finds them playing to the specific strengths of their current touring incarnation. The album exhibits a palpable energy that reflects the band's live shows.. The band navigates dynamic changes with subtlety and restraint; the nine tracks brim with both wide-eyed optimism and resigned melancholy. Their usual palette of dusty guitars and angular twang are still front and center, but now with a 90s homage, even if abstractly. It's their heaviest record to date, but never loses the sense of intimacy Widowspeak is known for.1. The Dream

Crimson Throne (Awaiting Repress)
Red/White Split Color Vinyl
The story of the doomed mission of the Space Shuttle Ambition. Classic science fiction of the darkest order. And so it goes, every track here is the potential soundtrack for some lost B movie classic, from the almost disco drums and groovy synth pulse of the title track, wreathed in sweeping swaths of keyboard shimmer, to the creeping komische swirl of Weightless which would no doubt score some 2001 A Space Odyssey type sentient computer/alien on board seventies sci-fi thriller, to the drum machine drive new wave-y grooviness of Solar Winds, which sounds like the weirdly and creepily jaunty music that plays beneath the closing credits, over the last image freeze-framed, alternatively it also sounds like some lost cold wave gem that could be a Dark Entries resissue!1.

Rhythm And StealthImport
After Leftfield's debut album Leftism, which was released in 1995, it took 4 years for the London-based producers duo to release the sequel.
Sounding completely different than the first album, Rhythm and Stealth was worth waiting for. It sounds more diverse and solid than its predecessor and contains exciting collaborations with Roots Manuva on the track Dusted and Hip Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa on the dance floor killer Afrika Shox, which was accompanied by a state-of-the-art and shocking video. Rhythm and Stealth is a great excursion into many different styles; it moves from funk to hip hop to techno to electro, to ambient and dub, but still sounds cohesive.
You might even recognize some of the tracks from the movies. Swords was featured in the 1999 movie Go and Afrika Shox can be heard in the box office success movie Vanilla Sky, starring Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz.1. Dusted

West Side StoryImport
West Side Story is the soundtrack to the 1961 film by the same name. All music is composed by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim. When released, the soundtrack spent 54 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's album charts, giving it the longest run at No. 1 of any album in history. Perhaps Michael Jackson's Thriller comes close, on the grounds that West Side Story was listed on a chart for stereo albums only at a time when many albums were recorded in mono.
In 1962, it won a Grammy award for Best Sound Track Album - Original Cast and Johnny Richards orchestrations of the movie score (on Kenton's West Side Story) also winning a Grammy in 1962 for Best Large Ensemble Jazz Album further bolstering the popularity of the movie and soundtrack. In the United States, it was the best-selling album of the 1960s, certifying three times Platinum in over two decades.

Wet Leather (Awaiting Repress)Originally issued as a limited cassette on Mirror Universe Tapes, Wet Leather is fully realized with 6 bonus tracks and expanded artwork. The Slasher Film Festival Strategy has recorded countless releases over the last 17 years. Think of Wet Leather as the score to an unrealized film that channels b-movies, slasher films, horror, and of course John Carpenter. Aquarius Records speaks highly of SFFS. This guy does it way better than most. The synth sounds are thick and gristly, the melodies sinister and ominous, the tracks laced with skeletal drum machines, and sweeping epic backdrops, as far as Carpenter / Goblin worship goes, it doesn't get much better than this.

Annabel Dream ReaderFormed in Brighton in 2011, The Wytches comprises Kristian Bell (vocals, guitar), Dan Rumsey (bass, vocals) and Gianni Honey (drums). Led by Bell's luminous lyricism, feral delivery and overdriven, surf-like guitar bends, the trio create a sound that is at once raucous and unruly, and yet decorated with semi-automatic poetry and authentic emotional clout.
Recorded at Liam Watson's 8-track analogue ToeRag Studios in Hackney, Annabel Dream Reader was tracked in two days under the supervision of producer Bill Ryder-Jones (ex-The Coral). Comprising thirteen songs, Annabel Dream Reader sees the three-piece accomplish a dark and heady sound that embraces the black arts and the more extreme limits of rock, but which is never prescriptively macabre. Far from it, the band displays a broadness of influences - all at once the songs reference surf, grunge, metalcore, spy movie scores.1. Digsaw

American Hustle SoundtrackLike Goodfellas and Boogie Nights before it, American Hustle's music celebrates the epic feel of '70s pop, rock, and disco and uses it to give its story extra heft. David O. Russell's tale of con men, Feds, and the mob has a lighter touch than either of those two movies, however, and this is reflected in the soundtrack's song choices. More than a few of these tracks are by Electric Light Orchestra as well as Jeff Lynne on his own, and the whimsical yet driving sound of 10538 Orchestra, Long Black Road, and Stream of Stars lends a tongue-in-cheek tone supported by Tom Jones' Delilah and Chris Stills' Live to Live. The album touches on some of the decade's definitive songs (Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Wings' Live and Let Die, Donna Summer's I Feel Love) but never sounds like a prepackaged hits-of-the-'70s collection, due in large part to unique choices like Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' gritty version of Don't Leave Me This Way and Mayssa Karaa's otherworldly Arabic interpretation of Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit, which is so striking that it's one of the finest songs on an album packed with big names. A nuanced and playful soundtrack, American Hustle works well as a companion piece to the movie that spawned it and on its own.

If You Knew My MindCapps is a southern rock troubadour with an eye on the human condition and a pen to write about it. -- OffBeat Magazine
Grayson Capps is like a whiskey-soaked, back-alley poet sired by Tom Waits and Robert Johnson. -- Razor Magazine
It takes less than 30 seconds for the debut album from this New Orleans-based singer/songwriter to pull you in. A lone harmonica blows over a softly strummed electric guitar as a lazy rhythm section props up the beat. Grayson Capps' weathered voice then enters: Yesterday was a very fine day indeed, I got a pint of beer, went outside and brushed my teeth. That about sums up this impressive yet unassuming bluesy debut from one of the many musicians who sound like what New Orleans feels like: languid, a little grimy and dangerous, but with a sense of history and self that wafts up from the streets. Those who listened closely to the soundtrack of the movie A Love Song for Bobby Long will recognize Capps, as his music was used to excellent effect in that rather obscure flick. In fact, Lorraine's Song, the most recognizable tune on that soundtrack, is a Capps composition and gets a suitably impressive and subtle performance here, as does the song whose title inspired the movie. He has a way with a drowsy melody, and after a few spins, these tracks gradually take hold. Certainly anyone who has explored the back streets of New Orleans will recognize the downtrodden characters who populate this album. Capps mythologizes their misery and sadness in songs that are heartfelt and edgy, but he never shortchanges melodies in exchange for gritty, often poetic lyrics. Guitar solos, such as the one in the Crazy Horse-styled Buckshot, are short, tight, and succinct, just like the band that ably supports Capps. His voice sounds like he just woke up and started singing before his first cup of coffee, but that adds to the effect. The album loses a little steam as it winds down, yet this is still a stirring first effort. It conveys the sense, sounds, and dark allure of New Orleans and many of its residents more effectively than a stroll through the French Quarter.

Singles (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (Deluxe)A Newly Expanded And Remastered Edition In Celebration Of The Film's 25th Anniversary
2xLP Vinyl Package Containing Bonus CD Of Rarities And Unreleased Tracks
Newly Released Bonus CD Features Previously Unreleased Recordings By Chris Cornell, Mike Mccready, Mudhoney, And Paul Westerberg In Addition To Rarities Such As Cornell's 1992 EP Poncier
Includes Liner Notes And A Track-By-Track Description Of The Album's Music Written Especially For This Collection By Cameron Crowe, The Screenwriter And Director Of "Singles"
Epic Soundtrax and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Cameron Crowe's groundbreaking romantic comedy, "Singles," with the release of a newly expanded and remastered edition of the Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album.
The 2xLP edition features the album's original 13 tracks newly mastered and freshly pressed across four sides of collectible 12 vinyl. The bonus CD of rarities and unreleased tracks is included as a special insert in the 2xLP 12 vinyl package.
The newly released bonus CD features previously unreleased recordings by Chris Cornell, Mike McCready, Mudhoney, and Paul Westerberg in addition to rarities such as Cornell's 1992 EP Poncier (debuting an early rendition of "Spoonman") and tracks from the film not included on the best-selling soundtrack album first released on June 30, 1992. The success of "Singles" helped establish a then-emerging new generation of rock artists-including 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and Soundgarden-as musical forces to be reckoned with.
The expanded edition of the "Singles" soundtrack includes, for the first time on CD, "Touch Me I'm Dick," the signature track from "Singles" performed by Citizen Dick (a fictional band created for the film featuring frontman Matt Dillon backed by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament).
The new Epic Soundtrax/Legacy Recordings edition of the Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack includes liner notes-and a track-by-track description of the album's music-written for especially for this collection by Cameron Crowe, the screenwriter and director of "Singles." The newly expanded edition of the film's soundtrack is produced by Danny Bramson and Cameron Crowe and mastered by Mike Piacentini at Battery Studios, New York.
Set in Seattle at the beginning of the 1990s, Crowe's film featured music by relatively obscure (at that time) bands like Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and Soundgarden, providing an introduction to an emerging grunge rock music scene for a welcoming mainstream audience. The film became a cult classic while the soundtrack achieved RIAA double platinum status in the US.
A romantic comedy capturing the zeitgeist of an era, "Singles" helped define the look, sound, attitude and style of Generation X with a fresh-faced ensemble cast featuring Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, Matt Dillon, Bill Pullman, Sheila Kelly, Jim True-Frost, James LeGros, Ally Walker, Jeremy Piven, Eric Stoltz, Tim Burton and more.
Crowe's groundbreaking film chronicling the lives of Seattle's twentysomethings touched a nerve in the culture while the movie's best-selling soundtrack-with tracks from new artists and classic rockers-provided a critical overview of the roots of grunge and the essential contributions of Seattle rock. Alongside new songs like Alice In Chains' "Would?" and Pearl Jam's "Breath" and "State of Love and Trust" stood the Jimi Hendrix Experience's "May This Be Love" and a breathtaking cover of Led Zeppelin's "The Battle of Evermore" performed by The Lovemongers (a musical side project created by Heart's Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson).
The first edition of the Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was originally released on June 30, 1992 and became a chart-topping best-seller three months prior to the theatrical release of the film. The soundtrack included music from key bands from the Seattle music scene-including Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden-while Paul Westerberg, in his first solo recordings outside The Replacements-contributed two songs and provided the score for the film. Smashing Pumpkins were also featured on the soundtrack with the song "Drown."
"The album itself was always designed to be sort of an anti-soundtrack, more like a souvenir and a simple mix-tape of some of Seattle's finest," said Cameron Crowe. "It really is and was a tribute to those hard-working bands that welcomed me to their city with open arms, and the music so many still love so much. Anyway, here we are now revisiting 'Singles,' the film, as well as the soundtrack you hold in your hands, expanded with a special tip of the hat to the fans of the original release. Included are unreleased and raw elements that helped shape the experience of making the movie back in 1991. Hope you enjoy the trip back as much as I did - Viva Seattle!"
25 years ago, the film "Singles" and its soundtrack worked together to bring the underground Seattle music scene to the forefront of mainstream consciousness. The album was among the first top-selling movie soundtracks of the 1990s to showcase new material from emerging contemporary bands. The expanded edition of Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is cause to celebrate anew the radical rock sounds that radiated out of the American Northwest a quarter century ago and changed pop music forever.LP 1

Goodmorning RestrainedOriginally released digitally in 2009 on Sounds Of Zilence, Magna Carta Cartel's [MCC] debut album Goodmorning Restrained has become a classic amongst music lovers who have found their way to this album and band. The album is an 8 track experience of what the band refers to as soundtracks for movies yet unmade or Radio-edited movie themes, for daily life and death. Magna Carta Cartel's music has impressed people all across the world and from all walks of life, and the demand for physical copies of this album have been increasing over the years. Lövely Records now offers the first ever physical formats of this legendary album. The release come with original artwork done by designer/graphic artist and director Claudio Marino.
What Magna Carta Cartel are up to today few or no one knows. What we do know though, is the fact that they once made this strange, different and beautiful album, and that it's now about time it is being materialised into this world. Magna Carta Cartel is a five piece Swedish rock band, often rumoured to be mysteriously connected to the highly secretive band Ghost. The band themselves describe their music like this: It reminds of Vangelis meeting Tom Petty, trying to reach U2, willing to be Joy Division, feeling like ABBA, longing to be Brian Eno, remembering Jean Michel Jarre, looking at Metallica, sleeping with Mike Oldfield, dancing to Koto, hunting the Beatles, killing Morricone in a duel, snorting to Moroder etc.1.

You and the Night Soundtrack
"This score is really for lovers and ghosts." -Anthony Gonzalez
M83 is excited to announce their latest collaboration: the soundtrack to Yann Gonzalez's first feature film, You And The Night. Anthony warns that You And The Night is not a typical M83 release. "People who only like "Midnight City" are going to be disappointed. Mellow and romantic, this soundtrack pays tribute to French soundtracks from the 70s and is much more intimate than Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and the Oblivion Soundtrack. This score is really for lovers and ghosts."
Growing up together in Antibes, France, Anthony and his brother Yann were both inspired from an early age by European filmmakers such as Luis Bunuel, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Pier Paolo Pasolini. Similar themes underline each of their individual artistic expressions, via both film and music: an appreciation for the majesty of hope and an overall embrace of humanity. Describing his career up until now, Yann explains "if all of my films are put together they form a kind of ensemble, a sort of community. And that is precisely what You And The Night is about: an emotional community, the utopia of a community." For the Gonzalez brothers community and family allowed them to grow into their roles as filmmakers and musicians, so when the time came to chose someone to create a soundtrack for his first feature film it was obvious that Yann would look to work with his brother. "Music is an organic part of the films I make." "M83's compositions bring together the most diverse kinds of music that can only communicate in the end through the logic of emotion and the faith you place in them."
For Anthony You And The Night is a film about love, loss, new love and melancholia. He comments "The movie is very emotional and it's the movie of my brother, so it was a very important project for me. Yet as we share the same values, have the same artistic influences, it was also a very natural and uncomplicated process."
In creating this sultry and luminous soundtrack Anthony reunited with several of his previous collaborators. Joe Trapanese (Oblivion, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming) returned to assist with the orchestral arrangements, whilst long-term M83 collaborator Morgan Kibby (M83, White Sea) and Susanne Sundfør (Oblivion) performed vocals on several tracks on the album. Evolving from their time working together on Oblivion's title track, it seemed a natural step for Sundfør to become involved in the recording sessions for You And The Night. Susanne comments "It was very inspiring to see how Anthony works and how his perfectionism and high ambitions brought out the best in everyone around him. It's something I'm grateful to have been a part of, and I think the soundtrack ended up sounding beautiful and mystical, just like the movie."
Once again You And The Night highlights the musical richness of M83 and adds an impressive chapter to the growing repertoire of work that Gonzalez has produced since his initial, self-titled release. M83, in 2001, right through to the 2011 Grammy Nominated release Nominated Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, which included the platinum selling hit-single "Midnight City".
Though of course, as Anthony warns, don't expect to hear anything like that on this record!1. L'inconnu

180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
First Pressing Of 2000 Numbered Copies On Silver Transparent Vinyl
Take A Look In The Mirror is the sixth studio album by American Nu-Metal band Korn, released in 2003. It is the first album self-produced by the band. Korn explained that they wanted fans to hear the music as it should be. They returned to a more aggressive sound as featured on their earlier albums, with guitarists Brian Head Welch and James Munky Shaffer mostly utilizing thick, heavy distortion and the occasional clean tones for contrast. The album peaked at number 9 of the Billboard 200 album charts and was certified platinum.
The track Did My Time was previously released as a single for the movie Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. The single debuted and peaked at number thirty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Korn's first top-forty hit in the United States. Did My Time gave Korn another Grammy nomination in the Best Metal Performance category. The track Right Now was accompanied by a provocative cartoon video animated by Spike and Mike.
The album also contains a reworked and re-recorded version of the track Alive, which had previously only been released on the band's first demo, Neidermeyer's Mind. The track Play Me features rapper Nas, making Take A Look In The Mirror the first Korn album since Follow The Leader to feature such a collaboration. Jonathan Davis plays bagpipes on Let's Do This Now, marking the return of a tradition that has previous to the album, only been absent on Untouchables.

On My Way and Shoutin' AgainImport
When Count Basie returned to Verve Records in 1962, Neal Hefti was contracted to write the tunes and arrangements, a revival of their partnership from the 1958 Roulette LP Basie Plays Hefti. While none of these selections is as famous as his songs like Cute, Little Pony, Splanky, Li'l Darlin', and Repetition, the substantial originality of this music is hard to deny, not to mention that the expert musicians playing his music bring these tracks fully to life in a livelier fashion than most laid-back Basie studio sessions. In fact, it has the feeling of a concert date that trumps the more clean, controlled environment of a session that was recorded on a three-track reel-to-reel. There's also plenty of room for exceptional solos from most of the participants, as Hefti is mindful of who is in the band and how each musician might sound when given his head.
This is tried and true swing-oriented modern big-band music that actually sounds advanced for its time frame, and is solid as anything Basie has done post-April in Paris. The band is atypically bold and brazen on the opener, I'm Shoutin' Again, with Frank Wess on alto (not tenor) sax for his spirited solo. The great chart of Jump for Johnny is a hard bopper for Johnny Carson, basic Basie with tenor saxophonist Frank Foster and trumpeter Sonny Cohn trading licks. Hefti's best work is showcased during Together Again, as the hopping brass and singing horns take tuneful twists and turns. This set also includes the classic track The Long Night, a famous blues featuring the sly flute of Wess in front of the horn section and a masterful muted solo by trumpeter Thad Jones. There are other tunes that are derivative, as you can clearly hear the borrowed phrases of C Jam Blues/Duke's Place in the low-key then blasted-out Eee Dee, Shiny Stockings sprinkled about during the more typical laid-back Rose Bud, and Groove Merchant or Hallelujah, I Just Love Him So in the easy-swinging soul groove of Ain't That Right. Hefti's movie soundtrack experience comes to the fore on Shanghaied, definite spy music with Cohn's muted trumpet masking phobias and paranoia. There are two cute tunes: Skippin' with Skitch, led by three flutes (Wess, Eric Dixon, and Charlie Fowlkes); and the lightly strutting Ducky Bumps, featuring Henry Coker's trombone, with brief solos from Basie's piano and bassist Buddy Catlett.
A solid and worthwhile album that has been out of print for far too long, this will be a welcome addition to any Basie lover's collection, and comes highly recommended to anyone even mildly interested in excellent large-ensemble mainstream jazz.

The Tower Of ForonicityThe return of Icelandic Singapore Sling with their seventh studio album. Twelve tracks of that dark, moody and broody sound that we all have come to know so well. It's like a surrealistic dream sequence out of a David Lynch movie. Walls and walls of sound, layered between darkness and light. The album contains some of the bands best songs to date, including the opening track "You Drive Me Insane" with its thump coming at you, it'll have you tasting the blood immediately. It was born out of love and hate. Love of the various music from the past, mainly rock 'n' roll, and hatred of the majority of the music around him.1. You Drive Me Insane

EgomaniacFollowing two successful years on the road supporting 2014's breakout Lunatic, KONGOS returned home in late 2015 with a bevy of ideas. The guys wrote initial demos separately and convened at Tokoloshe Studios-their full-scale production studio located in their hometown of Phoenix, Arizona. While sharing ideas, they collectively realized a thematic commonality, which would eventually inform the creation of Egomaniac.
"We started to see this theme of egomania in everyone's songs," explains Dylan. "It came from recognizing egomania in every aspect of life and throughout our surroundings. If you have any inkling of self-awareness, you also notice it inside yourself. It's so palpable in our world. By referencing another human condition in so many songs, we thought it was a nice follow-up to our last album Lunatic. If you're going to name an album Egomaniac, you have to incorporate big sounds and songs. The chorus of 'Take It From Me' embodies the entire record's theme perfectly."
Egomaniac boasts 13 new tracks from the group. These range from the blues guitar-driven accordion shuffle of "I Don't Mind," which instantly became a live favorite, to the skittering electronics and sharp commentary on "Autocorrect" and the epic send-off at the heart of "Look At Me."
In 2014, "Come With Me Now" from Lunatic put KONGOS on the map. The group became unanimously recognized as one of rock music's most infectious and invigorating new voices as the track went RIAA double-platinum for sales in excess of 2 million. It occupied the #1 spot at Alternative Radio for five weeks, marking the quickest ascent to the top by a new band in history. The song was heard everywhere with placements by The Expendables 3, Universal Studios, Dodge Ram, Samsung Galaxy, American Idol, The Originals, MTV Movie Awards, HBO, FX, CNN, NBC Sports, ESPN, NFL, WWE, Playstation 4 and more. The video has been viewed over 45 million times. They've hit the stage at Late Night With Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Today Show and more and received acclaim from Rolling Stone, USA Today, and many others.
The brothers KONGOS-Johnny, Jesse, Dylan, and Danny-have music in their blood. Their dad John Kongos landed multiple chart hits in the seventies, and the boys picked up instruments at a young age. Now, they've got a musical legacy all their own.LP 1

Volume ThreeWith fourteen songs-11 Deschanel originals and three covers-
Volume 3 is an effortlessly effervescent, bleached-out-in-the-sun pop
record. The album features some of the most dynamic, complex
songs Deschanel has ever written, allowing for tempo shifts, disco
grooves, string arrangements on multiple tracks, and horn flourishes
that perfectly suit the She & Him sound. Produced by M. Ward and
recorded in Los Angeles, Portland, and New York City, Volume 3
features guest contributions from NRBQ's Joey Spampinato, Mike
Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder from Rilo Kiley, and Tom
Hagerman from Devotchka.
Since the release of the band's album Volume Two in 2010, much
has happened to both She and to Him. Deschanel, whose television
show New Girl has cemented her status as a sitcom star, continued
to hone her songwriting skills, writing the theme song for her new
show in addition to being nominated for a GRAMMY for Best
Original Song for the movie Winnie the Pooh. She wrote songs for
Volume 3 during small pockets of downtime while filming New Girl,
as Ward toured the world behind his latest solo creation, A
Wasteland Companion, which was released to massive critical acclaim
last year. Together and separately, the duo has sold over a million
albums domestically-a testament to their classic sonic
arrangements, their rich, incomparable voices, and their ability to

King Creole (Awaiting Repress)
The Elvis Presley/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!
Celebrate The 55th Anniversary Of Elvis Presley's Smash Soundtrack Album King Creole!
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso And Manufactured At R.t.i.
Elvis Aaron Presley was born during The Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during
the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys.
These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his
contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King Of Rock And
Roll" trademark to his name.
In 1958 after several chart topping albums and a bevy of number one singles, more incredible fame followed as the King
Creole movie starring Elvis Presley became a box office smash. The soundtrack album also was a blockbuster as it topped the
charts, making this his sixth smash album in a row! Both the King Creole movie and soundtrack LP truly proved once again that his
career was unlike any other in music history.
Filled with more hits than a New Orleans jukebox, the King Creole album takes off with several smashes in a row, including
the classic title track rocker King Creole featuring Scotty Moore's trail blazing guitar work and the chart topping single Hard Headed
Woman. More soundtrack treasures follow with the beautiful ballad Young Dreams and the rockin' blues of his huge classic Trouble,
which truly made the album a treasure trove of hits. The album also features the stellar bayou rock blues of Crawfish which amazingly sounds like some of the classic southern rock sounds to grace the radio throughout the sixties and seventies. In total, the
album showcases 11 important Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics.
In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is very proud and honored to announce
the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the RCA Victor classic King Creole by Elvis Presley.
As another classic installment in our exciting Elvis Presley 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, we are very pleased to present

R.T.I., King Creole will be a much anticipated audiophile dream release for Elvis fans everywhere!

Noothgrush / Coffins SplitSouthern Lord brings forth a split album release from two of the heaviest sludge bands in existence. COFFINS from Tokyo, Japan churn out some of the filthiest, nastiest noise this year, while Oakland, California's sludge pioneers NOOTHGRUSH crawl from the grave to teach us a lesson in joylessness. Featuring artwork by Josh Graham, this utterly oppressive slab of crushing doom shall be officially released on 12 via Southern Lord.
NOOTHGRUSH return with their first new material since they reformed in 2011, and the disdain, the disgust It hasn't faded one bit. Their gruesome sludge is rooted in the real life, in the misery, hatred and despair of humanity - there are no traces of fantasy or psychedelic moments of horror movie nostalgia in this amoral cut of agonizing doom. With Dino Somesse, the man who personified anguish in '90s crust sludge golden calves, Dystopia, joining the band on vocals, this is a rare ignition of the scum-ridden sludge sound which America hemorrhaged during the last decade of the millennium. NOOTHGRUSH's side of the split opens with crawling, pained riffs punctuated with sparse percussion, and then the weight of the world comes down; rasping vocals, disturbing samples, and songs which grab you by the throat and open your eyes to a manmade hell.
COFFINS, the Japanese masters of rocking death-doom, have (once again) succeeded in making exactly the kind of music you would feel comfortable having as your soundtrack whilst riding a Harley Davidson into hell like you own the place. Their hammer comes down heavier than ever on these two tracks, wielding monstrous groove with downright foul tactics. Guttural is an understatement - what comes out of the mouth of vocalist Uchino is a tar-thick gargle with the stench of death, laying to waste whatever living creatures inhale it. Plants will wither, animals scurry, and metal fans will bang their heads! Channeling the old-school death metal filth of Autopsy with an altogether more rollicking lurch, this is horrific doom metal to rage toNoothgrush:

UnlearnNamed after the rival child gang leaders from the 1994 movie War Of The Buttons, Fergus And Geronimo's music is at times both focused and loose, and comes from a wide range of unexpected influences. At the core of the group is Jason Kelly and Andrew Savage, who met while Kelly was recording and mixing a record for Teenage Cool Kids, a band started by Savage. During that four month process of recording, Kelly and Savage bonded over music, the creative process of recording, and the possibility of having a band that draws from a variety of sources. Black and Chicano doo-wop, the energy and atmosphere of classic soul, the precise control of Frank Zappa, psychedelia, and a thought to nearly everything in between.
Unlearn is the group's first full-length after releasing a handful of singles on various labels over the past two years. Unlearn is an 11-track history lesson on the world of popular music with lush R&B harmonies, authentic rock and roll energy, and a fair share of experimentation. Both members share writing duties and play and sing everything on the record, with the exception of Elyse Schrock's vocals on the title track, and Casey Carpenter and Monet Robbins on flute and sax, respectively. We went out of our way to treat every song as its own and to give each song different tones and atmosphere, says Kelly. This concept pays off like a jackpot, with each song as a unique piece of a patchwork quilt that fits all of the sounds and styles together like a brilliant puzzle. Unlearn at times sounds old and at times new, but always authentic and informed.1. Girls With English Accents
