    Everything In Between

    Vinyl LP + Book

    Since the release of Weirdo Rippers (2007), through Nouns (2008), and beyond, LA duo No Age has earned enthusiastic notice from Pitchfork to The New Yorker, and found themselves unlikely Grammy nominees. Everything In Between sees No Age expand on the emotional force at the core of their catchy song-writing through tone, structure, noise, and samples. They've pushed themselves in challenging and different directions, deconstructing their weird-out pop songs while still maintaining their original aesthetic and intent. And, it's their best record yet.

    Weirdo Rippers


    First US vinyl pressing of their seminal debut for FatCat


    "Despite an overload of music these days, if often feels like there are fewer essential listens.
    At the end of Weirdo Rippers, you're left with a rare sense of having discovered something
    new." 8.0/10 - Pitchfork


    "Weirdo Rippers created an entire world within an album....so obviously a Los Angeles
    record. From the ambient guitar scratch on "Loosen This Job" to the plaintive field
    recording of waves on "Every Artist Needs a Tragedy" to the defiant, almost snotty "Boy
    Void," which sounded like it was recorded from inside a crusty cardboard box, the Los
    Angeles that No Age were writing was all warehouses, skating at sunset and unpretentious
    unity."- Stereogum


    Shimmering shoegaze pop and glowering punk collide and burst into flames on this
    delightfully rude debut. Surging waves of frayed yet beautiful electronica give way to urgent
    rants, with voices buried in the mix like distant cries for help. - SPIN


    By now the two young heavyweights
    from the LA Skate / Art /
    Punk underworld, No Age, are a
    well-known and established part
    of the indie pantheon. But back
    in 2007 Dean Spunt and Randy
    Randall were just building quite a
    bit of noise in the wake of the
    demise of their previous band
    Wives.


    After working out their sound in
    the LA scene revolving around
    the now fabled venue The Smell
    (pictured on the cover of Weirdo
    Rippers) they decided to release
    five ltd. vinyl only releases on a
    variety of DIY indie labels across
    the globe on the same day (namely
    UTR, Deleted Art, Teardrops, Youth Attack, and Dean's own PPM label). Designed by
    Brian Roettinger, Randall and Spunt, the back of each record's sleeve was a different
    color, and had one of the letters that, when you collected all of them, would join to spell
    No Age. Their debut LP release for FatCat, 'Weirdo Rippers', was a collection of
    recorded highlights taken from the aforementioned releases. At the time it was readily
    available on CD and has since found a home digitally but it's not found its way back to the
    vinyl format that first gave many of these tracks life. Now we're presenting the first
    domestically available version of 'Weirdo Rippers' pressed to vinyl; an utterly essential
    piece of No Age's past.

    Divisionary

    Having spent much of the last two years in willful isolation, Ages and Ages surface at last with Divisionary, an emotive and emotional song cycle that sees the Portland, Oregon-based collective wrestling with many of the contradictions and confusion that life has to offer. Pervasive acclaim and a fervent fanbase followed 2011's debut, Alright You Restless, but the band soon found themselves confronting what co-founder/frontman Tim Perry refers to as "some dark-ass shit."


    Ages and Ages tackled those challenges by amping up their multi-layered modus operandi - all gang harmonies, rhythmic discovery, and inner conflict - the contrast between joyous sound and disheartening subject matter instilling songs such as "No Pressure" and "Our Demons" with striking pragmatism and undeniable muscle. Fraught with heartfelt drama, celebratory spirit, and sonic ingenuity, Divisionary finds Ages and Ages torn and frayed but more optimistic than ever, empowered and transcendent in spite of their turmoil and trials.


    Produced and mixed by Tony Lash

    Silver Age

    Those familiar with the decades-spanning oeuvre of Bob Mould, from his pioneering early '80s work with HÜsker DÜ to his solo work in singer/songwriter, electronic, and rock modes, to the deafening pop sparkle of Sugar, might expect a new album bearing the title Silver Age to be a somber and reflective set in the mode of his last album, 2009's Life and Times and they'd be way off the mark.



    The new record features Bob's current band which includes drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and bassist Jason Narducy (Verbow, Split Single), on 10 brand-new Mould compositions in the punishingly loud, melodically sparkling pop/rock vein of the Sugar catalog and the intensity of his latter-day HÜsker DÜ output.



    "I'd been batting around the idea of another aggressive pop record for some time," Bob says, "especially as the 20th anniversary of Copper Blue kept getting closer. It's no surprise, then, that Silver Age careens out of the speakers with a sense of exhilaration that reflects the excitement with which Bob and his live band cranked out the record in a tight whirlwind of a window in early 2012.

    Rave Age

    Vitalic's third album Rave Age does not mess around. The French producer has made a beast of a record that takes the laser-guided disco for which he's known to an altogether wilder but no less euphoric place. This is a savage and carefree statement from a dancefloor visionary who's spent the last decade redefining electronic music in his own particular fashion and has decided, as only he can, to keep things simple.

    Art Official Age

    Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the '80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era, capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he release a series of groundbreaking albums; he toured frequently, produced albums and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of songs that still lie unreleased in his vaults. With each album he released, Prince has shown remarkable stylistic growth and musical diversity, constantly experimenting with different sounds, textures, and genres. Occasionally, his music can be maddeningly inconsistent because of this eclecticism, but his experiments frequently succeed; no other contemporary artist can blend so many diverse styles into a cohesive whole.


    ART OFFICIAL AGE is a classic Prince album, produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince and Joshua Welton. Sonically the record is a contemporary concoction of soul, R&B and funk. The melodies are immediate and prominent as ever and Prince's vocals are rich and solid, taking full advantage of his vocal range with decidedly, seductive lyrics.

    The Gasoline Age


    First Time Available On Vinyl


    Includes 9 Previously Unreleased Bonus Tracks From Various Years


    Merge celebrates our long relationship with East River Pipe by releasing their critically
    acclaimed fourth album The Gasoline Age on vinyl.


    Saluted by ROLLING STONE as "the most gifted of the new loners," F.M. Cornog,
    aka East River Pipe, originally released The Gasoline Age in 1999. Named Album of
    the Year by both THE NEW YORK TIMES and England's THE INDEPENDENT,
    The Gasoline Age was inspired in large part by nighttime drives on New Jersey's seedy
    Route 22. Automobile imagery appears throughout the album: cybercars, stolen cars,
    pimpmobiles. The cars all seem to carry with them a romanticism that emphasizes
    even further Cornog's gift of creating a lyrical mood without tying his flights of fancy
    down to specifics.


    The Gasoline Age explores the suburban landscape and turnpike stretches outside
    Cornog's door and calmly runs down bleak facts over the gentle pulse and chorused
    strums Cornog has been perfecting since his early singles. Some of the songs are built
    on merely six concise lines of clear-eyed warning, though sometimes ("Hell Is an
    Open Door") he sounds like he might actually be looking forward to the
    darkness on the horizon. On other tracks, like the ironically titled "Party Drive," it
    sounds as though Cornog is barely going to make it to the curb. But for the character
    in the song, going on that drive is the only thing that makes it seem like "we're gonna
    be OK."


    The disconnect between the unsettling dead ends Cornog sings about and the peaceful
    swells of the keyboards and the glimmering guitars is what brings emotional weight to
    the entire album. One doesn't get the sense that a whole lot has changed in the last 15
    years for the characters inhabiting this world.


    Merge came to know East River Pipe through his string of memorable and
    mysterious singles on Hell Gate and Sarah Records. Merge co-founder Mac
    McCaughan writes, "We had friends who were early fans of those records, including
    Jim Wilbur of Superchunk, and it seemed that no one took East River Pipe fandom
    lightly-once you were in on the secret, you were all in. After Ajax Records compiled
    the sparkling early sides, we started working with Fred and his wife and partner
    Barbara Powers and have been looking forward to the next batch of periodic broadcasts from his bedroom studio ever since."

    No Mas

    One of the most notable acts to emerge this year: (They) have the incredible ability to create music that makes you happy. - LA Times.


    Javelin throw a party that sees nothing wrong with dropping crooked disco (On It On It), schoolyard funk (Intervales Theme), abstract R&B (Dep) and pitch-perfect pop (Mossy Woodland) in the same set. At least that's the way things unfold on Javelin's debut album, No Más, the eagerly-awaited follow-up to a self-released collection of demos (Jamz n Jemz) and a pair of limited Thrill Jockey 12-inches (Javelin, Number Two). It's as if Javelin were programmed to reproduce the golden age of every genre known to man, bouncing between samplers and strings, drum machines and drum sets, and a growing collection of guitars, horns and homemade thumb pianos. You read that right: Most of No Más' dusty 45 moments aren't lifted from actual record crates. They're painstakingly recreated, note by note, from the jukebox in Javelin's collective mind. So if you're trying to 'figure Javelin out', don't bother.

    The Golden Age of Harpsichord Music (Speakers Corner)

    The harpsichord, sometimes disrespectfully referred to as a plucked instrument with keys, left its stamp on the musical language of the Baroque as no other. Whether employed as a continuous bass to accompany delicate chamber music, or heard in heady open-air concerts, or just as a solo instrument, its bright sound, rich in overtones, was highly esteemed by all important composers and musicians of the era. Due to the construction of the instrument it is not possible to play with a differentiated volume of sound, so performers made a virtue of necessity in that they concentrated upon lively phrasing and a well-considered choice of register.



    In the present recording Rafael Puyana plays a two-manual Pleyel harpsichord and interprets a wide and varied range of European keyboard works from the 17th and 18th centuries. Along with compositions by Louis Couperin and Domenico Scarlatti's, both of whom had a great influence on style in their day, this compilation has at its heart works by the English composers John Bull, William Byrd and Peter Philips, which are taken from the most famous collection of all Baroque compositions, the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. Short notes on the back cover provide useful information on the works' historical context.



    Musicians:



    • Besard, Couperin, Francisque, Scarlatti, Freixanet, Bach, Bull, Byrd, Philips, Peerson, and AlbÉniz - Rafael Puyana (harpischord)




    Recording: April and May 1962 at Ballroom Studio A of Fine Recording, New York City, by C. Robert Fine and Robert Eberenz

    Production: Wilma Cozart-Fine and Harold Lawrence




    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    No Deal (Awaiting Repress)

    Melanie De Biasio is a graduate of the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles and already an acclaimed artist in her home country of Belgium and in the neighbouring Francophone nation to the south. Initially heralded as a new voice in jazz, albeit jazz d'autres univers, other-worldly, so to speak, her first album A Stomach Is Burning was closer to the smoky, smouldering sound you dream of stumbling upon in a jazz cellar. Preferably in Paris or New York in, let's say, 1959.


    No Deal, her sophomore album, appears almost monochromatically minimalist at first, A simple cover shot. Melanie has cut her hair. Miles Davis A Kind Of Blue typography. Seven songs, through which her own voice drifts gracefully, at times disappearing altogether. Like a tintype photograph, this record needs time to develop, for the details to become clear, as if by magic.


    No Deal comes in at 33 and a third minutes, which could be mistaken for a nod to the golden age of the jazz LP. And yet its brevity (or succinctness) is genuinely hard to believe. It reverberates, echoes an resonates. Throw a stone into the lake and the concentric ripples seem to go on for ever.

    Being No One, Going Nowhere

    Pressed 180-Gram Light Blue Vinyl


    Being No One, Going Nowhere. The title of STRFKR's fourth album may seam bleak at first. But hold it in your head a minute, feel its weight, and you may recognize the phrase for what it is: a goal. In the era of the personal brand-amid the FOMO Age-it's increasingly hard to shed a stifling sense of self, or to just be in the moment that you're in. Well, consider this an invitation to get blissfully insignificant. That's what STRFKR founder Joshua Hodges aimed to do when he exiled himself to the desert to create this record, but he returned with his most significant work yet: a set of darkly glistening dance songs rife with sticky beats, earworming hooks, philosophical heft, and bittersweet beauty.

    The Rega RP8 skeletal turntable.


    Rega is extremely pleased to announce the launch of the much awaited RP8 turntable. A turntable which takes Rega's design philosophy further than ever before. A radical new plinth using custom designed materials, a new tonearm bearing assembly, 24v low volt-age motor controlled by a hand tuned electronic power supply and a custom version of our Planar 9 engineered hub bearing assembly. These are just some of the features of this amazing new turntable designed to extract more music from your vinyl than ever before.


    The Evolution of Revolution


    Evolution is a well proven and documented process in many areas of our lives. This applies in particular to design engineers and machines. Over the past forty years our cars have become more reliable and economical whilst we take for granted the reliability and speed of modern aircraft. Rega is no exception to evolution. Rega's experience and previous achievements allow us to continually develop and produce better products.


    The RP8 represents probably the biggest step forward in the evolution of Roy Gandy's turntable design philosophies. Low mass, high rigidity plinths combined with electronically controlled low vibration motors, high flywheel effect platters and lower mass higher stability tonearms.


    The RP8 is the first of our new "skeletal" design turntables offering groundbreaking levels of performance and amazing value for money.


    The RP8 will also be available with its perfect partner, the Apheta moving coil cartridge, factory fitted as a package option.

    2 Steps From The Middle Ages

    Pressed On Translucent Orange Vinyl


    Packaging Includes Rare And Previously Unseen Photos From The Band's Photographer, Robert Toren


    The Reissue Also Features Essays From Easter, Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star), And Franklin Bruno (The Village Voice, Salon.com)


    Their final studio album - remastered and expanded! Following up 1987's Lolita Nation (whose reissue appeared on numerous year-end "best of" lists for 2016) would be no easy task for Game Theory. But, Scott Miller and company were certainly up for the task.


    Re-teaming with producer Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Marshall Crenshaw, Velvet Crush), 2 Steps From The Middle Ages was released in 1988 and showed the band had no shortage of energy, experimentation, and excellent material.


    The first pressing of this LP reissue, on vinyl for the first time since its initial release, comes on translucent orange colored vinyl. Packaging includes rare and previously unseen photos from the band's photographer, Robert Toren, as well as essays from Easter, Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star), and Franklin Bruno (The Village Voice, Salon.com).


    The band's drummer, Gil Ray, who was involved in all aspects of the Game Theory reissue series including this title, sadly passed away earlier this year. This reissue is lovingly dedicated to him.


    As the first track says, there's "room for one more, honey." That 1 more is 2 Steps From The Middle Ages.

    An Object

    An Object, No Age's fourth full-length album, is hummable, political, recognizably rooted in underground rock, and informed by an aesthetic in which the relationships between guitar, percussion, and vocals become relationships between things.


    Again working with Grammy-nominated designer Brian Roettinger, the band prepared and assembled the
    physical packaging of An Object, fusing the roles of manufacturer, artist, and musician. An Object was recorded by longtime No Age collaborator Facundo Bermudez and No Age at Gaucho's Electronics in Los Angeles.

    Old No. 1

    Guy Clark's debut from 1975 is one of the all time classic country singer-songwriter records. By the time of its release the Texas native had been shopping his tunes in Nashville for a few years and the songs from Old No. 1 were already well aged and often covered. Regardless, though Clark considers himself more a songwriter than a recording artist, nobody holds a candle to these performances. From the rollicking Texas swing of opener Rita Ballou to the finger picked heartbreak of closer Let Him Roll there is not a stinker to be found. Features help from Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and a young Steve Earle.

    Bruckner: Symphony No. 5 / Mozart: Symphony No. 36 (Speakers Corner)

    Eugen Jochum was a modest man who did not use the media to draw attention to himself but rather to document his musical intentions. And right from the very beginning he focussed on magnitude. Aged only 23, he made his debut in Munich with Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 and so laid the foundations for his lifelong devotion to the Austrian composer's works, as is demonstrated by his complete recording of the Symphonies that was made during the years 1958-1967. The present account of the Fifth Symphony was recorded roughly half way through his thorough exploration and study of Bruckner's symphonic works. From the very beginning, the Concertgebouw Orchestra strides majestically towards the Finale with its sonorous brass sound in the chorale, and fugal sections. A divine atmosphere is guaranteed - quite literally - by the work being performed in the hallowed halls of the Benedictine Abbey in Ottobeuren to celebrate its foundation 1200 years ago.



    Jochum's fresh and scholarly account of Mozart's "Linz" Symphony reminds us of his superb mastery of the Viennese Classics. The music, which ranges from festive cheerfulness to abrupt gloominess, is resolutely conducted - with the happy result that the hackneyed image of Jochum as an otherworldly specialist of the Romantic era is completely abolished. Measured against the conductor's self-concept as a universal medium for expressing the ideas of the great maestros, the present recording is a befitting portrait of his superb versatility on the rostrum.





    Recording: May 1964 at Benedictiner Abbey, Ottobeuren, Germany, by Henk Jansen

    Production: Jaap van Ginneke



    Format: 2LPs 33rpm



    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Desperate Souls of Tortured Times

    Welcome to the Taurean Empire; a decaying land where disease, war and corruption is rife. A wretched place of man and beast, where deception, fear and despair fills every dank alleyway and the stench of suffering drifts across endless, sun-scorched plains. As way of ensuring safe passage through this hellish hour, let us introduce your guides for the journey; four road-hardened mortals, brought together by luck, power and coincidence. Ladies and Gentlemen, take up arms and go safely as Age of Taurus show you a world inhabited by the Desperate Souls of Tortured Times....UK based Age of Taurus make no frills Doom-laden heavy metal, with an emphasis on HEAVY. Produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Angel Witch, Hexvessel, Ghost), 'Desperate Souls of Tortured Times' is a 42 minute collection of material written during their transition over the past three years. It's an unashamedly heavy voyage down a road less travelled, where each of the seven songs acts as a chapter from an altogether longer tale. Monstrous, mountain-shaking riffs are order of the day in the Empire, stepping aside only for Riddell's searing leads to take hold, whilst the lock-tight Bruce/Claydon rhythm section underpins all. Heading the charge from centre stage, Wright's lyrics act as a vivid narrative, painting pictures of ancient ritual and sprawling landscapes, somewhat reminiscent of Manilla Road and Brocas Helm in their prime. Some might assume that DSOTT is a concept album, however in reality, Age of Taurus is more like a 'concept band', intent on delivering undiluted and intriguing heavy metal to all that will listen.

    iFi Audio Gemini Dual-Headed USB Cable

    The iFi Gemini Dual-Headed USB cable will rule them all. Audio and power cables are not laid side by side yet in the USB configuration because of its origins, transmits this way. The iFi Gemini carries Audio + Power in two separate cables. Critically, the special geometry adheres to the 90 ohm impedance specification better than even the USB 2.0 standard. Resistance is 4x lower than textbook. The FINAL USB machined connectors provide impeccable shielding from end-to-end. The atypicalrf3silencer design spans the whole of the frequency range to totally banish all noise.


    With this unorthodox array of features, the Gemini Dual-Headed USB cable sonically, eclipses them all.


    A simple, yet effective illustration is the graph below. The Gemini cable adheres to the 90ohm specification of the USB transmission protocol exhibiting just a 1% deviation from the 90ohm impedance end-to-end (ie. connector + cable together).


    Other expensive audiophile cables by comparison, vary as much as 15% (or 78ohm-103ohm!) This one key parameter is often overlooked yet is essential to maximise the quality of the signal transfer.


    The Gemini D-H USB cable. This Twin is not identical.


    There are dual-headed designs and there is the Gemini Dual-Headed design. The following picture clearly illustrates audio and power in two separate cables. Upon closer examination, power is heavier gauge and audio has more cores. Further, signal and ground have their own respective geometry to conduct optimally. This is the Gemini difference.


    The signal runs through the cable and connector. Therefore, the connector must be as exceptional as the cable. Most USB Cables use moulded plastic covered connections. Plastic cannot shield the high frequencies present in the USB Data link, so noise will radiate out. Durability is also compromised. The FINAL USB connectors provides impeccable end-to-end RF shielding, being machined entirely from solid aluminium. Gold-plated connections make for years of steadfast service.


    iFi's proprietary machine connector looks and feels like it was hewn from a solid block of aluminium. This is not far from the truth. This is the iFi standard.


    Addressing RF issues is usually non-existent in USB cables. Even those with filters fitted, they are off the shelf and as such, work only over too narrow a range. Also, too few are fitted and common RFI filtering is placed at the ends of the cables, leaving the whole length of the cable to act as effective antennae.


    The Gemini cable is fitted with three custom-made metal oxide ceramic RF noise silencers. Each with different effective ranges; thus they greatly broaden the range over which RF noise is silenced. Further the middle silencer is design to be adjustable (moved along the whole length), to "detune" the antennae formed by the cable, depending on the conditions and requirements in the system. The other 2 silencers which are not affixed, should be kept as close to each respective end as possible.


    To reach the absolute zenith in USB audio quality, we recommend the Gemini cable (for separate audio and power transmission) AND the iUSB Power (to supply pure, clean power). This combination is unique to iFi because no one drills down to the fundamentals like we do. The use of the Gemini cable + iUSB Power is simply unparalleled when it comes to attaining the quietest and smoothest music playback from computer audio. There is just no competition, period.

    Villains

    Housed In a Gatefold With Two Inner Sleeves & A Lyric Sheet

    Etching On Side 4 (No Music)

    The title Villains isn't a political statement. It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It's simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine and what actually happened Everyone needs someone or something to rail against-their villain-same as it ever was. You can't control that.The only thing you can really control is when you let go.-Joshua Homme

    Hundreds of epic shows, memory lapses, unexplained injuries, one yearlong detour with Iggy Pop and multiple Grammy nominations later, Queens Of The Stone Age reemerge from the desert newly scarred and somehow strangely prettier with lucky seventh album, Villains, set for release on Matador Records.

    Produced by Mark Ronson and co-produced by Mark Rankin and mixed by Alan Moulder, Villains is the first full album offering from Queens Of The Stone Age since 2013's Like Clockwork gave the band its first #1 albumin the U.S. Like the stunning artwork of returning illustrator Boneface, the sonic signatures of the lineup that took Like Clockwork around the world and back are as unmistakable as ever, though coexisting with sufficient new twists to induce recurring double takes. As Homme himself puts it, The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question 'what do we sound like now?' If you can't make a great first record, you should just stop-but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn't evolve, you become a parody of that original sound.

    Longtime Queens cohort co-producer Mark Rankin added, After the baptism of fire that was Like Clockwork,I was excited to get into the studio again with the challenge of pushing the sound for this record, especially with the addition of Ronson into the creative mix What we've made is forward looking yet unmistakably Queens.

    OCD Go Go Go Girls (Discontinued)

    Although, originally hailing from different parts of the UK, the Lovvers formed while all four members were living in Nottingham in 2005. The group re-calls the spirit of the Germs, the weirdeness of Flipper, the pop-style of the Wipers, and the carefree attitude of The Replacements.


    Having released four noisy 7 singles, the band signed to Wichita Recordings in 2008 and released the Think EP that same year. With OCD Go Go Girls the Lovvers set about making a record that in their own words is an unconventional weird pop record. The first single of the same name takes the Real Kids or Television and perhaps adds a touch of influence from the Lovvers other favorite bands, such as No Age or Times New Viking. The album is new-meets-old but by the end its fuzzed out Woodstock. This is vintage stuff; a completely analog recording.
