This Year's Model180 Gram Vinyl
Elvis Costello's follow-up to his debut release is now on 180 gram vinyl re-mastered from the original master tapes. This was Elvis's first album with The Attractions and includes the songs "Pump It Up," "I Don't Want To Go To (Chelsea)" and "Radio, Radio."
Stylistically versatile, deeply varied, and melodically catchy, this where Costello came into his ownand where the chemistry between virtuosic keyboardist Steve Nieve, bassist Bruce Thomas, and drummer Pete Thomas produced one of rocks best groups. A dynamic maelstrom of emotional spite, bitter frustration, sexual angst, and caustic political commentary, the 1978 set boosted Costellos star and yielded innumerable standards: the undying MOR protest Radio Radio, fervent Pump It Up, smart (I Dont Want to Go to) Chelsea, and spunky No Action are all here. While often cited as Costellos angry record,
This Years Model has more to do with disappointments and denials. The album bursts forth with a savage energy not possible without the Attractions, which are responsible for the songs being built from the ground up. Where Costellos voice and twangy guitar dominate My Aim Is True, here, sizzling rhythms and Nieves colorful organ runs anchor the foundations. This is a group effort, with Costellos biting lyrics taking chances and forcing the listener to mull double meanings all the while the music zooms by at a fast clip.1. No Action

After the punky heft and wildness of 2014's Hour of the Dawn,
an LP that thrashed against expectation, La Sera returns with
a set of songs that double down on the power of wry lyrics,

Ryan Adams joins to produce the fruit of their union, La Sera's

good love, bad love, dead men, and confused kids.
As a testament to the chemistry that happened in that

Pure HeroineAfter hearing the opening song Bravado on Lorde's debut EP, The Love Club, it'd be easy to mistake Ella Yelich-O'Connor for a seasoned tunesmith
from the American South, one who carries a heavy heart that's been ravaged by careless men over time. But in truth, Lorde recorded these songs as a 16
-year old Kiwi championed by the likes of Perez Hilton and Grimes.
Her youthful exuberance is only somewhat more evident in the following single Royals, which balances her seemingly timeless knack for songcraft with
a sophisticated pop savvy that most people over 30 can't find without collaboration. Lorde needs no collaborative hacks -- she writes and sings her own
songs. The confidence in Royals and the financial fantasies of Million Dollar Bills pulse and pump with the sultry R&B pomp of a Beyonce hit, save for
production that's slightly more confectionery.
Even when she sings in her higher vocal range about teenage politics, Lorde carries herself with the grace and poise of someone like Beth Orton.

DereconstructedWhat awaits you when the needle drops on Dereconstructed, the
new album by Lee Bains lll & the Glory Fires? Nothing less than
pure fucking heaven, that's what.
Consider the record's opener, "The Company Man." It revs up with
a riff sleazy enough to clog Rod Stewart's stomach pump as an
incantation that only a Yellowhammer can truly understand is
bellowed and then screamed. Before you know it, the joint is hotter
than a Birmingham soaking pit while you, the listener, are reminded,
lest you forget, don't ever trust the company man.
Dereconstructed is a careening, road raging, all night party of a
record. Informed by a distinctly southern hoodoo, it is a master
class in authentic Gulf Coast choogle. Having cut his teeth in the
Dexateens, Lee Bains lll has been properly schooled in how to throw
down, so much so that even his hyper literate musings are no match
for the blown out distortion that gives this record it's blistering
Songs like "The Kudzu and The Concrete," "Dirt Track" and the
roaring, blissfully-shambolic title track could be anthems looking
for a stadium, but they're also reminders as to why Lee Bains lll &
the Glory Fires are such a formidable party machine: simply put,
Dereconstructed was recorded by Tim Kerr, and mixed by Jeremy

7800 Degrees FahrenheitBon Jovi's sophomore release found the New Jersey group continuing with its engaging mix of hard rock dynamics and blatant pop-metal overtones, and primed the pump for the coming popular explosion of Slippery When Wet. Ever since the keyboard call to arms of the breakthrough Runaway, Bon Jovi had understood that real success lay in a billowing smoke, soft-focus derivation of true metal, where Journey-style synthesizers and soft rock chorus vocals were the name of the game. To that end, 7800° Fahrenheit tempered its black-leather rock & roll with a rudimentary form of the sound that would make Bon Jovi superstars. They puffed out their chests for the groupie-groping, Mötley CrÜe-style catcalls of In and Out of Love and made sure King of the Mountain rumbled with boys-night-out bravado. But they seemed much more comfortable with the twittering ballad Silent Night or Price of Love, where arena-ready riffing met smoke machine keys and vocal trills. There was even Tokyo Road, a valiant attempt at the epic scope of Springsteen that featured a Japanese-language intro and full-on character development. It was in these moments -- when the tenets of metal tried on the hairstyles of pop -- that 7800° Fahrenheit burned its brightest; the professional songwriting and increased cash flow of Slippery When Wet just made the existing mercury burst.1.

The Neon Demon Soundtrack
Two 180-Gram Vinyl - One Blue And One Green
Milan Records will release THE NEON DEMON - Original Motion Picture soundtrack. The album features the film's original score by Cliff Martinez (DRIVE, TV's THE KNICK), the original track "Waving Goodbye" performed by Sia, and two songs by Julian Winding ("Mine" performed by Sweet Tempest and "The Demon Dance"). The film is the third collaboration between Martinez and director Nicolas Winding Refn (DRIVE, ONLY GOD FORGIVES).
THE NEON DEMON is a story about an aspiring model, Jesse (played by Elle Fanning) who moved to Los Angeles to chase her dreams. Her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she does. The film also stars Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks and Jena Malone. This is the third Nicolas Winding Refn film Martinez has a part of, first with DRIVE and secondly with ONLY GOD FORGIVES marking it as another trifecta of perfection for the duo.
Perhaps it is because of his time in the punk scene that Cliff Martinez's approach to scoring is nontraditional. His scores tend towards being stark and sparse, utilizing a modern tonal palette to paint the backdrop for films that are often dark, psychological stories like PUMP UP THE VOLUME (1990), THE LIMEY (2009) WONDERLAND (2003), WICKER PARK (2004), and DRIVE (2011). Martinez has been nominated for a Grammy Award (Steven Soderbergh's TRAFFIC), a Cesar Award (Xavier Giannoli's A L'origine), and a Broadcast Film Critics Award (DRIVE).LP 1

Featuring Wild Wild West, Will 2K, La Fiesta, Pump Me Up Featuring DJ Jazzy Jeff
The Willennium album was only the second solo studio album by the then already famous actor, rapper Will Smith. Recorded with various producers and with his former collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff, the album was a commercial success. It reached #5 on the US Billboard 200 and was certified multi-platinum by the RIAA. Willennium also reached the top ten on the UK Albums chart and was successful in other regions.
At the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards, the music video for the single Wild Wild West received nominations for the Video of the Year, Best Video from a Film and Best Choreography awards. Smith won the award for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist at the 27th American Music Awards in January 2000.
The single Wild Wild West was the theme song to Will Smith's 1999 same titled summer blockbuster movie and samples Stevie Wonder's I Wish and Kool Moe Dee's Wild Wild West old school hip/hop track. Will 2K sampling The Clash's Rock The Casbah and Freakin' It were also released as singles.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine described Willennium on AllMusic positively as gaudy, giddy, infectiously silly, and proudly over-the-top praising the album for featuring bright, joyful party music that celebrates its big beats and big hooks.

DevastatesElfin Saddle deepens its compositional and conceptual agenda on Devastates, the band's third full-length album and its most urgent, ornate and impassioned work to date. The Montreal group, led by multi-instrumentalists Emi Honda and Jordan McKenzie (who also share vocal duties), has always shown a profound engagement with issues of environmental sustainability and the emotional impact of economic/political ideologies that continually foreclose on the possibility of genuine, progressive renewal and redirection. The band's music-making, and the parallel art practice on display in Honda and McKenzie's installation and video work, investigates the tensions between nature and technology on multiple levels. With Devastates, this is explicit in the lyrical narrative of the album as a whole and implicit in the band's use of found and re-purposed objects to create its soundworld.
The new abulm weds an operetta-style song cycle to an organic, junkshop aesthetic to great effect, forging a unique hybrid of folk music that weaves Honda's thrilling vocals (often singing in Japanese) and McKenzie's woodsy, unaffected baritone with threads of clattering steam-engine percussion, ukulele, accordion, glockenspiel and pump organ. The addition of Kristina Koropecki's cello alongside long-standing third member Nathan Gage on upright bass allows for a doubly melodic/rhythmic low-end.
Recorded in a small, abandoned chapel in rural Quebec, Devastates is intimate and humbly epic, anchored by a DIY aesthetic and fueled by the desire to say something both critical and hopeful about our common earthly trajectory. This is profoundly un-escapist and engaged folk music that avoids the obvious trappings of the folk traditions, grounding the listener in a sonic and narrative terrain that stakes out a highly original and distinctive definition of a protest song. 180g vinyl with a full color liner notes insert, screen printed art poster and download code.1.

This Year's Model (Awaiting Repress)Ranked 98/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
The first record he made with his legendary backing band the Attractions, This Years Model is Elvis Costellos most explosive and urgent album. Picking up where his fine My Aim Is True left off, the British singer/guitarist blasts through 13 excellent tracks with the fervent purpose and headlong pace of someone who has a cab waiting for him outside.
Stylistically versatile, deeply varied, and melodically catchy, this where Costello came into his ownand where the chemistry between virtuosic keyboardist Steve Nieve, bassist Bruce Thomas, and drummer Pete Thomas produced one of rocks best groups. A dynamic maelstrom of emotional spite, bitter frustration, sexual angst, and caustic political commentary, the 1978 set boosted Costellos star and yielded innumerable standards: the undying MOR protest Radio Radio, fervent Pump It Up, smart (I Dont Want to Go to) Chelsea, and spunky No Action are all here.
While often cited as Costellos angry record, This Years Model has more to do with disappointments and denials. The album bursts forth with a savage energy not possible without the Attractions, which are responsible for the songs being built from the ground up. Where Costellos voice and twangy guitar dominate My Aim Is True, here, sizzling rhythms and Nieves colorful organ runs anchor the foundations. This is a group effort, with Costellos biting lyrics taking chances and forcing the listener to mull double meanings all the while the music zooms by at a fast clip.
More than 30 years after its original release, This Years Model will still leave you breathless. Railing against unachievable desires, Costello and company delight in the anguish, and spit such torment back out in the form of hook-ridden music that functions as a brilliant form of situational confirmation and emotional catharsis.
Half-speed mastered from the original tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited-edition 180-gram LP brings This Years Models vicious songs to the forefront like never before. Punchier, gutsier, and livelier than any of the myriad CD remasters, this analog edition offers a transparent window onto the Attractions' loose interplay, Nieve's carnivalesque organ work, and rabid pounce of the Thomas-Thomas rhythm section. Here, for the first time, are previously buried tones, textures, and details. It took years to happen, but this is how This Years Model was always supposed to sound.

Smart FleshIncludes CD
With its dreamy, rustic take on the idea of Americana, the Low Anthem's Smart Flesh builds on the promise of the group's universally praised 2008 Nonesuch Records debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. As the Washington Post has put it, The Low Anthem isn't the first bunch of indie rockers to experiment with older string-band instruments and echoes of the songs of pre-1940 rural America. But no one has done it better than this Rhode Island trio... That's because very few bands have paid so much attention to detail, or to beauty.
To record Charlie Darwin, the three original band members-Jocie Adams, Ben Knox Miller, and Jeff Prystowskytook over a Block Island cabin in the dead of winter. To record Smart Flesh, the group now expanded to a quartet with the addition of drummer Mat Davidson-found a former pasta factory in Central Falls, Rhode Island, a cavernous loft space that became crucial to the shape of the album. Says vocalist Miller, We knew right away when we stepped into the factory that the space was really the main instrument for the whole record. The resonance was chilling. We were able to experiment with new recording techniques to capture the sound at different distances. Mics 100-200 feet away caught the sound barreling across the room. Additional tracks were recorded in a garage that had previously been home to a reptile breeder, another unconventional studio space that the quartet dubbed the gator pit.
The group self-produced Smart Flesh, bringing in Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk, M. Ward) to mix the Pasta Sauce sessions and Jesse Lauter (Elvis Perkins, April Smith) to engineer. Instrumentation included jaw harp, musical saw, stylophone, oversized drum kits, and three antique pump organs that the band had found and restored. The exquisitely crafted, achingly spare arrangements at times recall the early recordings of Leonard Cohen, and Miller's voice, on a track like Burn, displays a similarly gruff yet plaintive timbre. The deeply melancholic mood the group favors, starting with a spellbindingly slow-motion rendering of George Carter's 1920's era Ghost Woman Blues, will appeal to fans of the backwoods musings of Bon Iver or the lovelorn southern balladry of the Avett Brothers, with whom The Low Anthem has toured.1.

There And BackWhenever Jeff Beck releases an album, it's always a musical event. As the third in a trilogy of multifaceted career defining albums, preceded by Blow By Blow and Wired, the iconic guitarist unleashed one of the most popular albums in his ever enduring catalog with 1980's There And Back.
This masterwork unites the guitar hero with his powerful team of world class musicians, Jan Hammer (keyboards), Simon Phillips (drums), Tony Hymas (keyboards) and Mo Foster (bass). The brilliant guitar shredder and his quartet of amazing master musicians truly throw down some of his classiest and hardest driving repertoire for this Jeff Beck and Ken Scott (David Bowie/Kansas/Supertramp) production.
The album begins with the rhythmic rocker Star Cycle. The tune finds Beck and Hammer dueling on some very solid power riffs making this a great opening track for the listener. The soulful vibe of Too Much To Lose has the tremendous voicing of Jeff's guitar with Hymas' fine keyboard elements and Phillips' wonderful drum work throughout.
Always an astute bluesman, The Pump retains a solid groove which allows Beck to power away with some very intricate fret work, making this album the classic that it is. Hard rock fusion continues with more classics like You Never Know, El Becko and Space Boogie. These and his jazz rock leaning hits like The Golden Road and The Final Peace truly reward his fans with one of the finest albums in his decorated career!
Friday Music proudly presents the limited edition 180g audiophile release of Jeff Beck's classic There And Back. As a continuation of their highly regarded Jeff Beck Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series, this fine recording is mastered from the original Epic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Jeff Beck, Deep Purple, Yes) at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray.

Various Artists with Original Motion Picture Score by Cliff Martinez. A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong.
The soundtrack features original music by Cliff Martinez (The Lincoln Lawyer, Traffic) with Eurosynth-styled songs by Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx (''Nightcall''), The Chromatics (''Tick of the Clock''), Desire (''Under Your Spell''), College featuring Electric Youth (''A Real Hero''), and Riziero Ortolani featuring Katyna Ranieri (''Oh My Love''). Rolling Stone Magazine named Drive the No. 1 movie of 2011.
The Drive soundtrack raced to the top of the iTunes album charts, hitting No. 4 within a week of its digital release and peaking at No. 35 on the Billboard Top 200. The soundtrack re-entered the charts in February 2012 when the film was released on DVD.
''One thing that was unique for me about this project was having songs exert such a strong influence on the score,'' said Martinez. ''That helped to create a unified, one-size-fits-all, style of soundtrack... the 80s electronic pop style made a lot of sense to me. I knew that Nicolas [Refn, director] was in love with that sound and I saw a way to acknowledge it with vintage synth sounds and cover most of the dramatic food groups while referencing that style.''
This blending of score and song is the perfect vehicle for Cliff Martinez. Martinez moved to California in 1976, just in time for the punk movement. He had stints as drummer for the Weirdos, Lydia Lunch and Foetus frontman Jim Thirlwell, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dickies. He was also the drummer in the final incarnation of legendary iconoclasts Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.
Martinez has since received compositional credit on many of Steven Soderbergh's projects including Kafka, The Limey, Solaris, Gray's Anatomy, Schizopolis, Traffic (which earned four Oscars and earned Martinez a Grammy nomination), and the upcoming film Contagion. He also composed the music for Espion(s) and A L'Origine, two French films released in 2009 - the latter earned a Cesar Award nomination for best original score. His other credits include Pump Up The Volume, Wicker Park, Wonderland, and The Lincoln Lawyer.LP1
