    Buy Now


    Three-Four is a collection of three EP's (plus extra bonus material) made by the band The Shipping News (commonly referred to as RMSN) and originally released in 2003 via Quarterstick Records. The project grew from the desire to take a different approach to making songs and recordings.

    The rules were each band member (Kyle Crabtree, Jeff Mueller, Jason Noble) would record one solo song per EP. They would make songs quickly and with little preconception; open to whatever ideas arrived in a short time period and document them almost immediately. These would be made without talking to each other about content or style then assembled later. The three EPs would be released over the course of one year. This would happen while they worked on their next full album together, and some of the EP material would be reworked as band music eventually.

    The series was limited to 1,000 copies per EP, which allowed for the packaging to be handmade. Kerri Sancomb and Jeff Mueller designed, printed, and stitched each copy personally.

    In such a limited quantity these special EP's became highly sought-after pieces, and each EP sold out soon after it was released.

    This collection includes all of the songs that appeared on each EP, and as an added bonus it also includes three entirely new songs exclusive to Three-Four. This is the sound of The Shipping News broken down into component parts, each part working independently to find its way back to the others.

    Flies The Fields

    This Louisville and Chicago trio has added a fourth member in the form of Todd Cook (The For Carnation, Parlour). Upon first listen to "Flies The Fields", one may note the varying colors the band displays, from groove, to urgency, to subtle menace. This is a group making music that breathes and moves, lurches and crawls.

    If Then Not When

    The ghost stories, murder ballads and grimoires on Louisville, KY's King's Daughters & Sons full-length album If Then Not When are haunting, spare and at times explosively unsettling; part William Faulkner, part Led Zeppelin. Informed by, but not beholden to the history of its members (Shipping News, Rachel's, The For Carnation, Shannon Wright), their songs are singular, thoughtful and best heard loud. If Then Not When was made direct to 2 tape in 2008 and 2009 at The Funeral Home by Kevin Ratterman, engineer for California Guitar Trio, My Morning Jacket and Wax Fang. Mastered by Bob Weston, Chicago Mastering Service.

    Fifteen Quiet Years

    Features members June of '44, Rachels, The Sonora Pine, The Shipping News, and Retsin

    Includes UNRELEASED BBC studios session from 1994 for the legendary John Peel show

    LP Jacket letterpress printed by Jeff Mueller at Desterity Press studio

    Remastered at Chicago Mastering Service with Bob Weston

    Fifteen Quiet Years is a celebratory document four
    years in the making; a repository for all the important Rodan
    recordings that fans of Rusty have long wished they could
    unearth. The collection includes the 1994 BBC Peel session,
    together with all of Rodan's long-out-of-print 7s and
    compilation tracks. In 2009, Bob Weston, Jeff Mueller and
    Jason Noble lovingly re-mastered the tracks at Chicago
    Mastering Service. The packaging for the vinyl album and CD was
    designed by Jason Noble and Jeff Mueller, and has been
    letterpress printed by Jeff Mueller at his own Dexterity Press

    Despite the brief time span of their existence (1992-
    1994), Rodan appeared on a surprising number of records.
    Aside from their classic (and only) full length album Rusty
    (1994 on Quarterstick Records), the band released the Aviary
    demo cassette, and the How The Winter Was Passed single.
    They also contributed tracks to the Compulsiv For Two,
    Inclined Plane, and Merry Christmas Is For Rockers
    compilations as well as releasing a song on the soundtrack to
    the film Half Cocked (in which they also acted), and recording
    a brilliant session at the BBC studios in London for the John
    Peel show (unreleased until now).

    House With A Curse

    How much change is a band willing to endure in pursuit of a dream? In the case of Coliseum, as much as it takes. In the three years since their second album, No Salvation (their first and only for Relapse Records), the Louisville power trio have changed labels, producers, engineers, and replaced the frenetic breakneck speed of former drummer Chris Maggio with the emphatic rhythmic stomp of Carter Wilson, all in the service of producing the album they always dreamed of. That album is House With A Curse, their third full-length and first for Temporary Residence Ltd.

    Produced by the band at The Funeral Home in Louisville and mixed by J. Robbins in Baltimore, House With A Curse features no less than a half dozen guests: Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy), J. Robbins (Jawbox), Jason Noble (Shipping News, Rachel, Rodan), Peter Searcy (Squirrel Bait) and more all stopped by to add vocals, extra guitar, strings and whatever else a particular song might have called for. House is not just a new and exciting chapter in the Coliseum story, it's a celebration of the underground music community that inspired its very existence.

    Whistle Stop

    Blue Note Reissue

    As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their hands. Back home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent me. I hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud. Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008

    ...these first five Acoustic Sounds Blue Note re-issues are pure bop genius...The best news is that Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman were keen enough to do nothing more than gently clean up the masters, bringing us even closer to the hard bop edge. The 45 rpm pressings that I received were all super quiet with every last drop of resolution from the master tapes. I had almost forgotten just how good Paul Chambers and Phil Joe were together as the backbone of these groups. I've always loved this music but I didn't remember it sounding this good! Hank Mobley offers us some brilliant sax bits on one of Kenny Dorham's finest recordings, Whistle Stop and Dexter Gordon's performance blew me away as well. The biggest surprise were the Lee Morgan records. I suggest turning these up loud, since they possess unlimited energy and some hooks that will knock you out. Amazing! Just a small warning: Once you start playing these Blue Note recordings you will be hooked. The good news is that Acoustic Sounds is working on at least 20 more of these jazz gems. So make sure your turntable has a setting for 45 rpm, clean your stylus occassionally, and get ready to be transported to nirvana. - Dan Babineau, Tone Audio, No. 14 2008,

    Rightfully considered one of Kenny Dorham's best, this album features great originals and great trumpet playing. The superb cast consists of Hank Mobley, Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. The title tune and Philly Twist are often heard, but the entire album represents a great composing achievement for KD.

    Stage Four

    TOUCHÉ AMORÉ, is a Los Angeles based punk band whose earnest and artful approach to song writing, along with relentless touring, fueled their rise to prominence in the hardcore community.

    In 2013 TOUCHÉ AMORÉ crossed into new territory with their beloved release, Is Survived By. The band had reached a high point in notoriety when frontman Jeremy Bolm received news that his mother had been diagnosed with Stage Four cancer. With the band's support, Bolm wanted to go on hiatus to care for his ailing mother. However, as his biggest supporter, she encouraged him to continue on living his dream. So he returned to the road with bandmates- guitarists Nick Steinhardt and Clayton Stevens, bassist Tyler Kirby, and drummer Elliot Babin. In October of 2014 while TOUCHÉ AMORÉ was headlining Fest in Gainesville, FL, the final stop on their tour, Bolm received a call that his mother passed. He went home the next day.

    Now from a band both living its dream and marred by loss comes their new album Stage Four. Triumphant in sound and cathartic in delivery, Stage Four is a powerfully creative leap for TOUCHÉ AMORÉ. The first single is the catchy "Palm Dreams," and it's instantly clear from Bolm's vocals that TOUCHÉ AMORÉ is breaking new ground: the career screamer is actually singing, in a quite capable sing-speak harmony. The final track, the lush, jangly "Skyscraper," featuring haunting guest vocals from Julien Baker, ends the album with an atmospheric departure, both sonically and in spirit.

    Strangers Almanac

    Whiskeytown, a highly acclaimed founding band of the alt-country/No Depression scene, launched the solo career of four-time Grammy®-nominated singer-songwriter-guitarist Ryan Adams as well as that of fiddler-singer-songwriter Caitlin Cary. Now the groups 1997 major label debut album, an overlooked gem from a band considered one of the genres most promising, is being released for the first time ever on vinyl.

    1997's Strangers Almanac was Whiskeytown's major-label debut and the album that first introduced Ryan Adams to a wide audience, but at the same time it marked the beginning of the end for the group. When Whiskeytown went into the studio to record Strangers Almanac, the band had undergone the first of what would become a long line of personnel shakeups, and in addition to Ryan Adams, the only proper members of the group on hand for the sessions were violinist and vocalist Caitlin Cary and guitarist Phil Wandscher; session musicians filled out the lineup, while the new rhythm section, Jeff Rice (bass) and Steve Terry (drums), was hired only two weeks before recording began. Despite its chaotic creation, Strangers Almanac sounds stronger and more cohesive than its ragged but forceful indie predecessor, Faithless Street, and there's a deeper resonance in Ryan Adams' tales of wasted nights and wasted lives, such as Inn Town, Losering, and Dancing with the Women at the Bar. Strangers Almanac doesn't rock as hard as Whiskeytown's earlier material, but when the guitars kick into high gear on Yesterday's News and Waiting to Derail, it reveals just how good a match Ryan Adams and Wandscher were, and Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart Tonight and 16 Days are as strong and moving as their country gestures got. Strangers Almanac captures Whiskeytown when they still had some business calling themselves a band rather than just Ryan Adams' backing musicians, and the glorious world-weariness of its best moments makes it a far more satisfying listen than most of what would follow once Ryan Adams struck out on his own.

    Ride Out

    Bob Seger has emerged from the studio equipped with a new album, Ride Out, set to be released on Capitol Records. The first single, "Detroit
    Made," pays homage to America's love affair with the automobile. The uptempo song hit radio airwaves August 15, serving as the perfect backdrop to the
    20th annual Woodward Dream Cruise, the world's largest one day celebration of classic car culture.

    "I feel really good about this record," says Seger. "This album touches on how I think a lot of us feel about finding our place in a more complicated world - from how we appreciate things as simple and pure as love, to navigating through the corruption and violence that permeates the news. It sums up a lot of
    feelings I have about a variety of subjects."

    Produced by Seger, the new collection stays true to his legendary sound as he effortlessly marries rock, blues and country, yielding an album with all the
    hallmarks of the rocker's deep catalog of hits. Seger began teasing tracks from the album during his 2013 tour, including "Detroit Made," "All of The
    Roads" and "California Stars." Ride Out is Seger's first studio album since his 2006 platinum-certified Face The Promise and follows his 2011 platinum-certified release, Ultimate Hits: Rock and Roll Never Forgets.

    Bob Seger has sold more than 51 million albums and has racked up 13 platinum and 7 multi-platinum RIAA-certified album sales awards in the U.S.
    alone. He is both a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and his Greatest Hits, Against The Wind, Night Moves, Stranger In
    Town, Nine Tonight, and Live Bullet have been RIAA-certified for more than five million U.S. album sales each. The 1994 Greatest Hits collection was the
    #1 best-selling catalog album in the U.S. during the past decade (2001-2009), as reported by Billboard/SoundScan.
