    Pocket Full Of Kryptonite (On Sale)

    180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl


    Pocket Full of Kryptonite, originally pressed in 1991 sold over six million copies worldwide and was on Billboard's popchart for an incredible 115 straight weeks.


    This reissue of Pocket Full Of Kryptonite by SoundStageDirect is a special project for both the band and Seth Frank, President and founder of SoundStageDirect. Seth's passion for vinyl started at the young age of 11 when he began working at the Princeton Record Exchange. It was in that very record store where a friendship between Seth and Chris Barron, the lead singer of the Spin Doctors solidified over a mutual love of music.


    As the legend goes, Chris Barron went in to the Princeton Record Exchange in Princeton, N.J., when he was about 13 years old. He met 15-year-old Seth who at the time worked at the store which Chris thought was really cool. With $3 of hard-earned allowance in his pocket, Chris asked Seth, 'What's a really good album that's like, cheap?' Seth said, "Dude, 'Live At Leeds,' It's a killer album." And so Chris bought his first vinyl album for 99 cents, and walked out with enough money left over for a slice of pizza and a soda.


    The two teenagers who bonded over their passion for music and vinyl records in particular are still friends today, coming full circle with the limited edition 180 gram vinyl release of Pocket Full Of Kryptonite. It's very clear both men still share the same excitement about bringing music to people, each in their own way.


    The Spin Doctors are currently on tour with all of the original members (Chris Barron, Eric Schenkman, Aaron Comess & Mark White).

    Definition of spin doctor: a spokesperson employed to give a favorable interpretation of events to the media, especially on behalf of a political party.


    Spin Doctors weren't part of a political party but spread the word about romance. The band was formed in New York City, best known for their early 1990s hits Two Princes and Little Miss Can't Be Wrong. The singles peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 7 and No. 17 respectively.


    Pocket Full of Kryptonite is the first studio album (and second release) by the Spin Doctors which was originally released in August 1991. It peaked at #1 and #3 on Billboard's Heatseekers and Billboard 200 albums charts. It was the band's bestselling album and was certified 5x Platinum by the RIAA.


    The album's title is a reference to Kryptonite, a fictional substance from the Superman comic book series. The title is taken from the album's opening track, Jimmy Olsen's Blues, a reference to Superman supporting character Jimmy Olsen, who is attracted to Lois Lane and jealous of her romantic feelings for Superman. The cover is showing a phone booth and refers to Clark Kent frequently ducking into a nearby phone booth to change into his Superman attire.

    The Birth

    After traversing the galaxy as the road crew for fellow Oklahomans The Flaming Lips, a strange yet melodically intoxicating band has emerged, the psych/prog/experimental pop quartet Stardeath And White Dwarfs. One-half stoners with nothing to do but roll joints on their King Crimson record sleeves and one-half confetti launchers/space bubble technicians, Stardeath And White Dwarfs debut their own free-floating circus with their first full-length album, The Birth. A mind-trip of emotion and mood, recalling everything from upper dance freak-outs to downer Floyd-esque anthems, The Birth celebrates a love of all things psychedelic. This standard-weight black-vinyl release is housed in a single-pocket jacket with a digital download card for the full album.


    Stardeath And White DWarfs independently released the six song EP, Thats Cool, in 2005, followed by the 7 single in the U.K., Toast & Marmalade For Tea/Chemical, on Half Machine Records in 2008. The band has toured with Deerhoof, British Sea Power, Band Of Horses, Starlight Mints and The Flaming Lips.

    A Trip To Marineville

    Brothers Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks started the Swell Maps in the early 1970s while in their teens. The band's chaotic mix of arty experimentalism, garage primitivism, and punk rock gumption established a template for the British DIY post-punk movement of the late '70s and early '80s. The band's 1979 debut, A TRIP TO MARINEVILLE, perfectly captures the band's two disparate yet strangely compatible elements. Songs such as Spitfire Parade, Another Song, and the rousing opener H.S. Art burn with youthful abandon and a glammy, knowingly primitive cool. Yet by Don't Throw Ashtrays at Me and Bridge Head, the listener is presented with an almost completely different band, as improvised noise, clattering percussion, found sounds, and ambient piano soundscapes overtake the more straightforward rock elements that introduced the album. The hypnotic pulse of Krautrock creeps in on Full Moon in My Pocket and BLAM!! and the Sonic Youth blueprint is presented fully formed on Gunboat. For the Swell Maps, the call to arms of punk rock wasn't about empty gestures toward anarchy and social rebellion, but rather the notion of a personal revolution via the limitless possibilities of art. A Trip To Marineville perfectly captures this realization.

    As Stowaways In Cabinets Of Surf

    Asthmatic Kitty Records presents the fifth Half-Handed Cloud full-length album: As Stowaways in Cabinets of Surf, We Live-out in Our Members a Kind of Rebirth, or Stowaways for short. Connected with the lyrical tradition of 19th Century American hymns such as Shall We Gather at the River? Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb? and There Shall Be Showers of Blessing, these tunes splash about in cavernous spaces opened up by irregularly measured rhythms and pocket-orchestra arrangements integrated with creaky pianos, sound-loops, a tugboat of a church organ, guitars, and billowing banjos.



    Half-handed Clouds John Ringhofer recorded this album on his half-inch reel-to-reel tape machine in the sanctuary and custodial quarters of a church in Berkeley, California, where hes lived and worked as a custodian for the past seven years. He played most of the parts himself, joined by friends on cello, clarinet, violin, trumpet, and flute. Brandon Buckner, one-third of Ringhofers former band, Wookieback, is behind the drum-kit for the duration of this record. The album was mixed with Daniel Smith (Danielson) at Familyre Studio in Clarksboro, New Jersey.

    Lighght


    "I really felt like I was witnessing history... in a couple of years we'll be talking about,
    'Man, I saw him at this intimate little show." - NPR


    "Grand and transcendent... the layers of beautiful sound, homage to Japanese culture,
    and use of violin make 151a a dreamy, pocket-sized symphony, perfect for anyone
    needing a lift." - BUST


    "Sumptuous orchestral brilliance... It's a stunningly good record, not merely chirpy,
    zany, and whimsical-but also packed full of harmonious, heart-stopping beauty. If you
    can imagine ELO's very best moments combined with Andrew Bird and a bit of weird
    Bjork introspection-well, even that doesn't really do it justice. Apart from Pet Sounds,
    perhaps, I can't think of a record that's as singly captivating in its sonic beauty." - THE PORTLAND MERCURY


    "Kishi Bashi's music sounds surprisingly basic and natural. He's got such a great way
    of thinking about production and melody that I've yet to hear a bad song from him." -
    YOU AIN'T NO PICASO


    "The music is off-kilter, particularly the opening chants and swirl of guitar and drums.
    The middle section, though, takes a more even-keeled approach to pop, balancing the
    looped whistles with peaceful, yet evocative vocals."
    - CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND


    "A weightless, cartwheeling, electro-pop romp that's all zz and no fuss" - SPIN


    Violinist, singer, and composer Kishi Bashi is slated to release his new album on
    April 29, 2014. The album entitled "Lighght" (pronounced "Light") continues and
    expands the sound of his critically acclaimed debut, "151a" - which earned Kishi Bashi
    the *title* of "Best New Artist" by NPR. Since the profoundly successful release of
    "151a" two years ago, Kishi Bashi has toured relentlessly, captivating audiences across
    the globe with his loop-based live show, and fostering a groundswell of devotees.


    "151a" was crafted over a four-year period while Kishi Bashi was touring and recording with Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and of Montreal (where he was a full-time
    member and co-producer). In late 2012, after the success of "151a", Kishi Bashi
    decided to focus solely on his own music and began composing the new material
    which has become "Lighght".


    "Lighght" takes its title from the one-word poem by minimalist poet Aram Saroyan.
    As Kishi Bashi explains, "The poem's blatant assault on literary convention and
    classical form was attractive to me." It is apparent that such an approach informed
    the new album, which has both broadened and redened his classical foundations.
    "Though I have studied classical composition, I prefer to take an unconventional path when it comes to creating and thinking about music," says Kishi Bashi.


    Though violin remains his primary instrument and songwriting muse, Kishi Bashi has
    expanded his palette to include more diverse and nuanced instrumentation. Bright
    and soaring avant-pop songs are prevalent, as are Eastern-tinged arrangements,
    gentle ballads, Philip Glass inspired improvisations, and more than a few moments
    that irt with 70s prog (in the tradition of ELO or Yes).


    If this sounds jarringly kaleidoscopic, that's because it is. But it works. Listen and see.

    VII moves effortlessly from track to track allowing Earley to paint the colorful pictures that play in our head while singing along. there are those songs I keep writing over and over again, Ever Loved Once with all its regrets and tragic lost love, Don't Be A Stranger it's hopeful cousin but they all still point to the same worn out place in the heart of old E. Earley. And hey, we all have that place, that worn spot on the heart like the chew canister circle on the back pocket of blue jeans, or that one shred in the green felt of the table where you ground the stick in too hard May these songs minster in ways mysterious and eternal, or at least maybe make you shake a hip.

    Labor Of Love

    Previously Unreleased Late 1990s Recordings



    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings



    Taj Mahal, Loose And Casual In Informal Recording Sessions With Peers



    Taj Performs With Guest Artists: John Dee Holeman, Cool John Ferguson, Cootie Stark And Algia Mae Hinton



    Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing




    The blues live on because the blues give people life, not the other way around. Talk about the blues with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and composer Taj Mahal, or Tim Duffy, founder of the Music Maker Relief Foundation, and you'll quickly understand how deeply they grasp this. So it's no surprise that their shared love of blues has created a special vinyl-only album release that's got the loose, easy feel of a porch-sitting guitar strum, sipping sweet tea on a warm summer day.



    Labor of Love comprises recordings made by Duffy, hanging out with Taj and other artists in a Houston hotel room and during visits to the Music Maker Relief Foundation headquarters in Hillsborough, North Carolina.



    Taj and Tim first connected in the mid-1990s as Tim was establishing the foundation. The foundation is dedicated to preserving Southern roots music by directly supporting senior artists in need while documenting their music and sharing their stage and recording talents with the world.



    A CD collection released by the foundation featuring Music Maker artists caught Taj's attention. Tim invited Taj to his place in rural Pinnacle, N.C., where he hung out with several of the artists. Taj loved how they played and sang, but he especially loved getting to know their lives and how they made things work.



    Not much time passed before a performing tour was launched, with Taj as the headliner. Meanwhile, Tim, sensing an incredibly rich opportunity, was hauling along with the tour, high-end recording gear. He set it up in hotel rooms hoping to capture an impromptu session. One night in Houston, magic happened. A few senior bluesmen, Tim, Taj and the daughter of Katie Mae, immortalized in the Lightin' Hopkins classic Katie Mae Blues hung out together in a hotel room in Houston. Taj picked up an acoustic guitar and started in on classic tunes - Stack-O-Lee, Walking Blues, and more. The tape was rolling.



    During the time of the tour, Taj was also visiting during hang-out, barbecue and recording sessions at Music Maker's new North Carolina headquarters in Hillsborough. When the music got going, Taj would play some piano, bass, harp, banjo, mandolin and whatever else was needed.



    Now is the time for these immortalized sessions to be heard. So here they are on a solid piece of wax. And what wax it is - a full-on 200-gram vinyl Analogue Productions masterpiece plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's best-sounding LPs. Packaged in a Stoughton Printing tip-on gatefold jacket. You won't find a more intimate portrayal of Taj as a freewheeling, fun-loving, always-in-the-pocket sideman.

    Close to the Glass

    The Notwist's Close to the Glass, their eighth album, is a catchy and
    unpredictable marriage of playing your heart out on an instrument and
    the magnetic pulse of precise programming. We now find The Notwist
    defining their edges with no shortage of bravery or beat. As romantic as
    it is robotic, Close to the Glass is a bottomless collage: part pop song,
    part science, part band, part storytelling and all Notwist. Brothers Markus
    and Micha Archer, alongside Martin Gretchmann, Max Punktezahl and
    Andi Haberl, have finally found their human form and, at last, 'become'
    The Notwist.


    The Notwist began as a metallic hardcore band in 1989. Markus and
    Micha have always been at the core of the band; Gretchman joined in
    1997, and the band has been through countless collaborations and side
    projects (Lali Puna, Console, Ms. John Soda, to name a few), constantly
    pushing themselves both in those projects and as The Notwist. Their
    sound has transformed hugely over the years, becoming progressively
    catchier and incorporating the members' love of folk, classical, rap, rock
    and electronic music.


    Now, in 2014, we find The Notwist following up 2007's The Devil,
    You + Me with their most adventurous record yet. The strong connection
    and trust between band members allowed them to blur the lines between
    their roles more than ever. With everyone playing anything, the band
    could take their music anywhere, from sheer noise to kraut-rock beat
    pocket to arena rock ride out. Close to the Glass is also full of vocal leaps
    for Markus Acher, experimenting not only with effects but also with his
    range, leaving the comforts of his signature style to take the music
    somewhere new. Close to the Glass reflects and reveals the truth about
    The Notwist more than ever, in its collage nature, pop-music moments
    and unpredictable structures. It feels as good in expensive headphones
    as it does in the trunk, a seamless soundtrack for that movie always
    going on inside you.

    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.

    Rated O

    With Rated O, Oneida has delivered a monster which happens to be the crowning achievement of their storied creative lives. By producing this colossus they have also created the necessity of its destruction, which within the confines of this tremendous accomplishment, they do so handily and with utter fluency. Perhaps Rated O represents the encyclopedic representation of Oneida music, creativity and insatiability. The music contained within the covers of Rated O must be seen as a gifted wilderness that when traversed will grant the traveler both a fractured mirror and a demolished and worried pathway deeper into the abyss. This album is an attempt to contain the entirety of Oneida and thus it points the way to infinite rebirth and boundless creativity. It is a finite map and the suggestion of unknown worlds.


    Oneida has been releasing genre-defying music since 1997. They have nine full-length albums (one as double album, and now one as triple album) and various EPs and singles to their name. The list of great musicians and artists that Oneida have performed or collaborated with is far too extensive to briefly summarize here. They are critical darlings, they have become ambassadors for Jagjaguwar, and they are paying it forward with a label of their own called Brah Records (distributed by Jagjaguwar). For the reductivist in you, consider Oneida the bastard offspring of a Can/Suicide marriage, a band who is not afraid to pluck, tap, bend, synth or crash their way to the various extremes of rock, pop, folk and the avant-garde, and who brilliantly do so without alienating the respective fans of any of these so-called genres.

    Future archaeologists will discuss two periods in 1980s: before Run-DMC and after Run-DMC. It's no exaggeration to say that the group
    changed the course of music in the '80s, bringing the old-school of rap into the new with one simple piece of flat, black plastic.


    Coming up in the rap world of the early 1980s under the wing of Kurtis Blow (group manager Russell Simmons managed Blow, and Run
    was, at one time, a DJ known as "Son of Kurtis Blow") and Blow's bassist and burgeoning super-producer Larry Smith, the trio - Joseph
    "Run" Simmons, Darryl "DMC" McDaniels and Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell - learned from the best, but created their own path.


    1983 was the year that they first broke out. With only an Oberheim DMX drum program and some cuts by Jay, "Sucker M.C.s (Krush-Groove
    1)" was a shot across the bow to the slick, post-disco pocket rap had settled into. It was raw, pure swagger and it took both New Yorkers
    and music aficionados around the world by storm. The song's lyrics are a mandatory memorization assignment to this day by MCs learning
    their craft. "Two years ago, a friend of mine "


    The group's sound, which was laid out muscularly on Run-DMC, had a harder approach than their peers, thanks to producer Larry Smith's
    use of live musicians who laid down grooves but didn't soften the edges. Lyrically the group wasn't just about brags either, with songs like
    "Hard Times," "It's Like That" and "Wake Up" (the first two were singles). Run's and DMC's overlapping tag-team approach to lyricism was
    powerful and immensely influential.


    "Rock Box," another single and arguably the centerpiece of the album, was a nod to their hard edge, and a foreshadowing of their first
    worldwide smash, 1985's "King Of Rock." Jam Master Jay's DJ work was stellar, knowing exactly when to jump in and put listeners' ears in
    a headlock.


    The album was the first rap full-length to achieve Gold status, and as fans know, the group was just getting started - their next two LPs would
    take them to even higher status in the music world, critically and sales-wise. But this is where it all started, and it's a classic that still sounds
    fresh today as it did more than 30 years ago.

    Crooked Teeth

    Papa Roach has never taken the easy way out and they aren't going to start now. Over the past two decades the group have established themselves as true trendsetters in heavy music: They've been nominated for two Grammys, toured the globe with everyone from Eminem to Marilyn Manson and crafted the nÜ metal anthem "Last Resort," which is still in heavy rotation on rock radio seventeen years after its release. However, the group's tenth full-length Crooked Teeth sees the band returning to their humble-and hungry-roots. The album was recorded in a cramped West Hollywood studio with up-and-coming producers Nicholas "RAS" Furlong and Colin Brittain, who grew up listening to Papa Roach and inspired them to revisit some of the traits that personally endeared the band to them, most notably frontman Jacoby Shaddix's remarkable rapping technique.


    "We've always kind of considered ourselves to be the bastard cousins of everything we've every been involved with so we wanted to be true to that and switch things up this time around," Shaddix says. "The first time we met up with RAS and Colin, they said that [2000's] Infest was on constant rotation when they were growing up and they wanted to bring back some of that fire." The connection between the artists and producers was immediate and the first song Papa Roach-which also features guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance, and drummer Tony Palermo-came up with for Crooked Teeth was "My Medication," an instantly catchy banger that sees Shaddix spitting verses in between massive choruses and ambient accents. "I really felt like we had a personal connection and the music was just there waiting to be written and once we nailed that song things really clicked and we knew exactly what we had to do" Furlong explains. "We really followed our instincts and tried something unproven with this record and because of that we ended up with a bold, courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach." It was in this studio that "old school" Papa Roach ways, morphed to create this "new school" Papa Roach sound.


    From the instantly infectious nature of the title track to the atmospheric sheen of the ballad "Periscope" (which features Skylar Grey) and the hip-hop rock mashup "Sunrise Trailer Park" (which features an impassioned verse from Machine Gun Kelly). Crooked Teeth displays the various sides of Papa Roach and illustrates why they've managed to remain relevant while musical trends ebb and flow. "We didn't go into this album with the intention of trying to write radio singles," Horton explains. "The collection of songs was really about bookending everything that we've done prior to this album and reintroducing Papa Roach to people who didn't realize the depth that we have," says Palermo. "The whole idea was to take the classic elements of Papa Roach that everyone loved and revamp them into a modern version of the sound through the creative process," adds Furlong. "We just wanted to flip everything on its head and see what would happen and it turned out more amazing than any of us could have expected."


    "The people who have wanted to hear me rap for years are gonna love some of the viscousness on this record," Shaddix explains adding that while he had his own initial reservations about some of the album's more unorthodox moments - such as the 808 bass drop into a metal breakdown on the album title track, "Crooked Teeth" - ultimately those adventurous decisions are what make the album such a refreshing change of pace in a rock climate that's grown increasingly sterile. "I'd like to personally thank all of the guys in the band for making this happen because all it takes is one person to give you a shot and this was definitely mine," Furlong adds. "I want to be one of the best producers in modern day music so I wanted to work as hard for these guys as they would for themselves because as a producer it was my job to push them to get the kind of quality work everyone has been expecting."


    Just as Papa Roach felt like they still had something to prove with this record, so did the production team who attempted to bring in elements of music from different genres and parts of the world while still staying true to Papa Roach's sound. "One of the big elements in my production is finding those pockets of rhythm that people associate more with rap or reggae," Furlong explains, a fact that came in especially handy when Shaddix was fine-tuning his freestyle skills. "I know rap rhythms because I grew up listening to hip-hop, so I was able to make sure that the delivery was on point and the beat was in the pocket so it didn't suffer from a lot of the stylistic pitfalls that can happen when you merge rock and rap."


    Crooked Teeth also sees Shaddix pulling no punches lyrically, as evidenced on intensely personal tracks like "Born For Greatness," produced by Jason Evigan (Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Kehlani, Madonna), which sees Shaddix getting sentimental about his three children, or "American Dream" where the lifelong pacifist begs the listener to ask, "have you ever thought war was a sickness?" "My father is a Vietnam veteran and a lot of those soldiers came back to a country where people weren't accepting them back into society or aware of the effects that war has on your psyche," Shaddix says of the song." "Post-traumatic stress disorder and the disintegration of the American family are things I've dealt with personally and I knew other people could relate to. I think that's what makes this record bold. Nothing was off limits when it came to what was on my mind."


    Never one to shy away from difficult topics, Papa Roach dug deep with Crooked Teeth and refused to censor themselves when it came to their opinion of the current political landscape and organized religion. For example, on "None Of The Above," every ounce of musical intensity on the album is mirrored by Shaddix's words whether he's screaming, singing or rhyming. "It took me a long time, but eventually I realized that in life we're all human and we all make mistakes whether you're the president or the preacher, you know?" Shaddix explains when asked about the latter song. "It's an example of how I can get lost in a storyline and explore so many different issues in one track and that's what I love about this record. Just the spark of an idea would instantly ignite and the next thing we knew we had another song that we all loved."


    In many ways making Crooked Teeth reminded Shaddix of the band's early days, well before they sold millions of albums and became a household name. "When we were in the rehearsal space I wasn't thinking about who I needed to impress, I was thinking about how much I love making music with the guys in this band," Shaddix admits. "It feels honest and it feels pure," adds Esperance. Fittingly, throughout the process, Shaddix gained inspiration from bands like Led Zeppelin and Faith No More, acts who constantly redefined themselves and were never content to rest on the merits of a hit single." This band encompasses some of my greatest victories, but it's also brought out some of my darkest character flaws," Shaddix summarizes, "so I have kind of a love-hate relationship with this music, but I can't stop because I've got too much of my life invested in it at this point. We are a purpose-driven band and I've got a responsibility to myself and our fans to continue to create."

    Ritual

    Ritual is something of an anomaly in the Keith Jarrett archive. It's a solo album, as many of his best are, only this time it is pianist, conductor, and frequent collaborator Dennis Russell Davies at the keys playing a work penned entirely by Jarrett. The hallmarks of a Jarrett piano recital are all there-the rolling ostinatos, dense arpeggios, and profound doublings-yet are valenced differently under the rubric of "composition." In this context, we get a sense of "once removed-ness" that might not present itself under improvisational circumstances. The piece's modest 32 minutes are divided into two immodest parts. From the opening groundswell we get not only dense pockets of energy, but also nodes of emptiness. Put another way: the music's glorious peaks share the same space as the shadowy valleys at their feet, thereby encompassing a harmonious middle ground. Like a geyser, its eruptions are predictable yet manage to enthrall every time. Despite its claustrophobic beginnings, Part 1 ends in bright solitude, like a room in which the curtain has been slowly opened to welcome the morning sun. Heavier chording marks Part 2, which resolves in a hopeful melancholy, but not before gelling the emotional plasticity of its precursor. This brings us full circle, ending on a solemn intonation of a single note.


    Ritual is far more "regulated" than typical Jarrett fare, spun as it is from the surrogacy of another performer rather than through the alchemy of spontaneous creation (though there is, of course, some of each in the other). The results are captivating in their own way, stoked by every depressed key and lifted pedal. Its shapes are drawn not by what is, but what has been and will be. The present is invisible and lives on only as formless possibility, caught like a blown kiss in the cup of one's hand.


    Recorded June 1977 at Tonstudio Bauer, Ludwigsburg

    Solid Gold Heart

    The words and primary voice are those of Jad Fair, that
    enduringly idiosyncratic artist revered in discerning pockets of
    the global indie rock underground for decades. Danielson's
    Daniel Smith has long admired Fair, drawing inspiration from
    Half Japanese (the band Fair formed with his brother in the '70s)
    on through to his prolific career today. Their discussions of
    collaborating finally came to fruition when Joyful Noise
    Recordings designated Fair its "Artist In Residence" for 2014
    and Danielson was tapped as one of 4 artists (including R. Stevie
    Moore; Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake; and Strobe Talbot) to
    record separate respective albums with him for a boxed-set
    limited release. "Flattered and honored" is how Smith sums up
    his feelings about the project -- and grateful to get a game-plan
    for what always seemed a complementary pairing.


    Sounds Familyre will be doing their own non-limited release of
    Solid Gold Heart in June, on CD, digital and gold vinyl. The 11
    tracks of sweet collaboration collected under said title sound like
    what you might expect, given the respective artists: gleaming
    tunes of sincere sing-speak, resplendent with sparkling back-up
    vocals and warmly melodic, inventive instrumentation; a
    sunshine-bright outlook of positive encouragement to keep
    "rockin' on the side of gooood" -- because, after all, "We
    deserve chocolate cake/ We deserve apple pie/ Enjoy your life
    ..."


    The collaborative process commenced with Fair sending Smith
    his unique vocal demos of recited lyrics with articulated mouth-sound musical qualities (some bits remain in the final mixes).
    Smith then wrote music for each chosen track, eventually getting
    Fair and drummer Gilles Rieder into his Clarksboro, NJ studio
    to record their parts during a few hours break from touring.
    Aside from Smith's own guitar-playing and singing throughout
    the album, there were contributions made by his brothers David
    and Andrew on percussion, and sisters Rachel and Megan along
    with wife Elin on vocals. Spicing things up at Fair's behest were
    members of Texas art-polka band Brave Combo: Carl Finch on
    accordion and keys; Jeffrey Barnes on sax and woodwinds; and
    Danny O'Brien on trumpet. Bringing things full-circle was
    Kramer (Shockabilly, Bongwater, B.A.L.L. et al.) on bass, who
    also co-mixed and mastered the album.


    The result is a beguiling blend that builds off each participant's
    strengths, truly a fresh sum that is greater than its parts. "The
    goal was to make 3-minute pop songs, as accessible and fun and
    immediate as possible," notes Smith. And that's what you'll
    hear, each track an uplifting, mutually enhanced concoction.


    Anyone who ever had a Solid Gold Heart -- wouldn't they want
    to turn around and share it? Of course they would. Jad Fair and
    Danielson are happy to offer up theirs.

    Lightning to A


    No matter how you choose to connect with your music and media, AudioQuest provides a high-quality cable specifically designed for the job. Our complete line of USB cables includes four models now available with Apple's® Lightning™ connector (as used on all recent iOS devices). Whether you're connecting mobile devices to the USB ports common to so many car audio systems or streaming content to a home entertainment system, a high-quality, low-distortion cable is required for sound that is full-bodied, engaging, and three-dimensional. Thin and flat is a great look for an iPhone or iPad®, but it's not how the music from those marvelous devices should sound!


    SOLID 0.5% SILVER CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like USB audio. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality USB cables.


    HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen injected to create air pockets. 'Hard' foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.


    METAL-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS): 100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.

With the perfect amount of headband pressure, your ears will have hours of comfort.




    Patented Klipsch Balanced Dynamic Drivers

    Reference Over-Ear headphones utilize patented Klipsch Balanced Dynamic (KBD) driver technology which brings you closer to the music by equalizing the weight of the driver's diaphragm. KBD driver technology greatly improves sound, reducing the driver's intermodulation distortion (IMD) by removing lead wires from the diaphragm. Distortion reduces clarity and gives an unnatural element to the original sound. The difference is noticeable as bass becomes fluid and connected to the midrange and high frequencies without becoming bloated or disconnected. The improved dynamics create a soundstage and presence only heard in Klipsch's legendary speakers.




    Portable Design

    Apt for get-up-and-go situations, Reference Over-Ear headphones fold up and include a hard zip carrying case. A durable, tangle-resistant cable and three button mic make it simple to have full control of your Apple device without having to take it out of your pocket.

    Saosin (Awaiting Repress)

    Saosin is the debut album by post-hardcore band Saosin. Includes a matte finish with spot UV gatefold jacket and full color inner sleeve.


    The long wait is over. California's Saosin issued their debut EP Translating the Name in 2003. They already had a well-developed fan base for their unique, even enigmatic brand of post-hardcore screamo. The band, having undergone some personnel changes -- most notably singer Anthony Green's departure in 2004 and the enlisting of Cove Reber as his replacement -- also underwent a sonic change on their self-titled 2005 EP. That primer was a guidebook to the band's new sound. Their Capitol debut, produced by Howard Benson, who also plays keyboards and does minimal programming, is a much slicker and far more imaginative outing than the band's underground fans may appreciate. That's not to say it's not impressive. It is. Quite so. This quintet are fine songwriters, excellent musicians, and have actually taken their post-underground hardcore beginnings and turned them into something that may indeed further rock music itself. This is not an idle claim. The songs on this album are tight, finished, and full of unexpected twists and turns, varied dynamics, fine lyrics, and, most of all, they're surprising. The hard twin-guitar sound at the front drives a rhythm section that is always in the pocket. Justin Shekoski and Beau Burchell work symbiotically with one another. They twin riffs and single lines without ever devolving into guitar heroics. They play as a unit. Reber's beautiful high-pitched voice walks the line but never resorts to screaming, because he doesn't have to: his instrument is powerful enough to ride the top of the musical swirl. The rhythm section carries the cradle of all this innovation, never slipping or abandoning these songs to mere workmanship. Check the killer counterpoint leads on Follow and Feel, and how drummer Alex Rodriguez takes the beat to the band inside the tune. When Reber enters with Don't let them know you're watching their situation crumble... his lyric is one of dislocation and the futile attempt to understand distance and dissolution. The killer, all-out rock riff in It's So Simple is beguiling as the song's dynamics and pace change three times inside of four minutes. That's the other beauty of this record; all but one track are under four minutes. The album flows from top to bottom; songs bleed into one another yet keep their distinctive identities. It's a strange comparison, but Saosin are as unique in their way as U2 were in their right from the beginning. Though they are seasoned road warriors, it's no mean achievement that a debut album carrying so much weight seemingly so effortlessly, is so utterly sophisticated and complete . Sure, Capitol will try to make them the next big thing, and maybe they should -- when's the last time you heard anything really new in rock music? Bury Your Head is the only track here that is a carry-over from Saosin's EP. Its woven textures, explosive singing, knotty basslines, and call and response vocals are chilling and utterly effective. Saosin walk that line between metal, indie rock, post-hardcore, and many other things. But that tautness is what gives their songs such power and ruddy grace. The album may garner the charges of sell-out from the underground, but musicians grow. In a relatively short time, Saosin has evolved into a smart, utterly talented and perhaps even visionary unit that is rewriting the book in the 21st century. They have delivered a debut album that is mature, truly original, that can garner the attention of those kids -- and hopefully, older adults who still care about rock -- from almost any side of the rock & roll spectrum. - Allmusic.com

    Every March 17 on St. Patrick's Day, New York City merely paints a green line down the center of its Fifth Avenue parade route-a stunt easily pulled off by any city-but only Chicago dyes an entire river the perfect shade of emerald green to honor Irish culture. Why green? Thanks to Ireland's lush vegetation, the island is often lovingly referred to as the Emerald Isle. To the Irish, a green display of pride is not to be taken lightly. In the United States, even those of non-Irish descent know to wear green clothing on St. Patrick's Day, or else be playfully pinched by an Irish friend or colleague! But it's one thing to don a green shirt or tie, another thing altogether to transform a 156-mile long river. Chicago's Stephen M. Bailey, the man who orchestrated the transformation, boasted that he'd turn the River Chicago into the River Shannon (Ireland's longest) for a day, and, eventually, he did.


    There was no specific recipe for successfully dyeing a river. A bit of trial and error was required. Initially, over 100 pounds of dye was used, and the river stayed green for a week! In the second year, 50 pounds of dye kept the river green for three full days. In the third year, it was found that using 25 pounds of dye would turn the river green for a single day. Two years later, environmental concerns led to the formation of a new vegetable-based dye that produces a perfect sea of green and lasts for four or five hours-40 pounds of the stuff does the trick. Following suit across the nation, major canals, minor creeks, city blocks, drinking fountains, and even the Presidential Fountain at the White House are dyed green for St. Patrick's Day-all thanks to the wonderful example set in Chicago.


    SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Chicago's solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.


    NITROGEN-INJECTED HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. 'Hard' foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.

Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.


    DOUBLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: Two ideal audio conductors separate from the cable's shield. Not only does this prevent the shield from being used as an inferior audio path, but it further optimizes sound quality by only grounding the shield at one end, reducing system ground-plane modulation.


    COLD-WELDED GOLD-PLATED PLUGS: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.

    North America has two Red Rivers, North and South. Red River South has been home to many peoples; it once was the border between the US and colonial Spain, and today forms part of the border between the rival states of Texas and Oklahoma.


    Red River North forms in a confluence of rivers in North Dakota and Minnesota, but its history is Canada's. The Red River North's early settlers were the MÉtis, whose ancestry was French and aboriginal Canadian. The MÉtis in 1869 began an uprising known as the Red River Rebellion, which challenged the Canadian government, eventually leading to the formation of the province of Manitoba.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER (PSC) CONDUCTORS: Perfect-Surface Copper has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion conductor. For over 30 years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by this huge leap in performance. PSC clearly outperforms previous AQ metals that cost over ten times as much. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat dirty, harsh sound. Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Red River's very clean sound.


    NITROGEN-INJECTED HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets.

    TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: The three conductors in "Triple-Balanced" Mackenzie cables ensure that whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior conductor.


    COLD-WELDED, GOLD-PLATED TERMINATIONS: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.

    Pinkerton (Awaiting Repress)

    Pinkerton on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP from Mobile Fidelity


    1996 Sophomore Album Cited on Countless Best-of Decade Lists


    Includes El Scorcho, Pink Triangle, Tired of Sex, and The Good Life


    Loosely Related to Puccini's Madame Butterfly, Confessional Album Lays Bare Frustration, Confusion, Awkwardness, and Loneliness Amidst Power-Pop Settings


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Experience the Album's Edgier Feel as Originally Intended


    Few records claim as bizarre a history as Weezer's Pinkerton. Upon release in 1996, the band's sophomore effort failed to meet sales expectations, lacked a hit single, and drew primarily negative reviews from the press. Then, via word of mouth and reevaluation, the Little Album That Could began to build a reputation as an initially misunderstood masterwork-a bold, brave, and exposed creation that happened to have hyper-contagious hooks to accompany the confessional lyrics. Today, it's cited on virtually every Best Albums of the 1990s list in existence.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's analog version of the effort Rolling Stone awarded a full five-star review upon revisiting it eight years later brings the band's live-in-the-studio vocals and darker, raw feel to the surface like never before. Leader Rivers Cuomo's decision to record group choruses around three microphones rather than capture them separately finally can be experienced as originally intended, with the immediate vibe paying off in the form of more engaging, edgier results that parallel the songs' personal emotions and frustrated themes. Guitars, which scrape and push, augmenting the trials and tribulations documented in the narratives, are finally rendered in proper perspective.


    Comprised of nonfiction tunes largely based on Cuomo's dissatisfaction with rock-star life, and written by the singer/guitarist as he attended school at Harvard University, Pinkerton confronts disappointment, loneliness, isolation, awkwardness, and cruel romantic irony with a universal perspective to which anybody can relate. Cuomo selected the character Lieutenant Pinkerton from Puccini's Madame Butterfly as a touchstone, believing the persona symbolic of the tormented protagonists in his songs-and recognizing similar struggles to come to terms with identity.


    Weezer's aims on Pinkerton have connected with many that identify with its narratives and adore its surfeit of melodies. Surpassing cult-classic status and conquering fickle tastes, the record ranks in Guitar World's "Top 100 Guitar Albums of All-Time"; Spin's "100 Best Albums From 1985 to 2005"; Pitchfork's "Top 100 Albums of the 1990s"; and Rolling Stone's Hall of Fame.


    For all the malaise, Pinkerton also contains beloved wit and humor. Shyness and hands-in-pocket diffidence inform "El Scorcho"; incongruity and surprise surround the simultaneously funny and sad "Pink Triangle"; tedium and desire collide on the cynical "Tired of Sex." Psychosexual confusion, unrequited passion, and good intentions elicit unintended sympathies, a trait that remains one of the record's brilliant turns.

    Originally named Disappointment for dashing Alexander Mackenzie's hope that it would lead to the Pacific rather than the Arctic Ocean, the Mackenzie River is Canada's largest, longest river system. Traversing 2,635 miles, it flows through a vast network of lakes, boreal forests and arctic tundra. Mackenzie's many tributaries cover portions of three provinces-British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan-and two territories, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. Known as "The Amazon of the North," Mackenzie's sparsely populated basin remains one of the great unspoiled natural areas in the world.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS: Perfect-Surface Copper+ has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion PSC+ conductor. PSC+ is manufactured by applying the same exceptional technology to an ultra-pure copper. The resulting sound quality is even more focused and simply less in the way. For over 30 years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by the huge leap in performance made possible with Perfect-Surface Technology. PSC+ simply outperforms all previously available copper metals at any price. All of Mackenzie's conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat dirty, harsh sound. Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Mackenzie's very clean sound.


    NITROGEN-INJECTED HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. 'Hard' foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.


    CARBON-BASED 3-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS): 100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.


    TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: The three conductors in "Triple-Balanced" Mackenzie cables ensure that whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior conductor.


    COLD-WELDED HANGING-SILVER DIRECTLY OVER PURE PURPLE COPPER PLUGS: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability. Purple Copper offers a cleaner, clearer sound than the nickel-plated or OFHC metals commonly found in competing manufacturers' plugs.

    Original shop poster


    Live Mini-Poster (full color both sides)


    Reprint of Nick's handwritten set list


    This first studio album from Nick Drake, which has garnered posthumous praise and remarkable all-time greatest album ratings, is an exact replica of the original 1969 release: It is pressed on heavyweight audiophile vinyl and remastered from near-original master tapes by the album's original engineer, John Wood. Although the original tapes were unusable, John Wood had made a safety copy of the album in 1969 and those reels were used for this latest session.


    The deluxe release comes in a box containing the original shop poster, a smaller live poster and a reprint of Nick's handwritten set list used for his live appearances, together with reproductions of the master tape and box lids. The disc is housed is a single-pocket, textured sleeve just as the original release would have been.
