    Gasoline Alley

    Gasoline Alley follows the same formula of Rod Stewart's first album, intercutting contemporary covers with slightly older rock & roll and folk classics and originals written in the same vein. The difference is in execution. Stewart sounds more confident, claiming Elton John's Country Comfort, the Small Faces' My Way of Giving, and the Rolling Stones' version of It's All Over Now with a ragged, laddish charm. Like its predecessor, nearly all of Gasoline Alley is played on acoustic instruments -- Stewart treats rock & roll songs like folk songs, reinterpreting them in individual, unpredictable ways. For instance, It's All Over Now becomes a shambling, loose-limbed ramble instead of a tight R&B/blues groove, and Cut Across Shorty is based around a howling, Mideastern violin instead of a rockabilly riff. Of course, being a rocker at heart, Stewart doesn't let these songs become limp acoustic numbers -- these rock harder than any fuzz-guitar workout. The drums crash and bang, the acoustic guitars are pounded with a vengeance -- it's a wild, careening sound that is positively joyous with its abandon. And on the slow songs, Stewart is nuanced and affecting -- his interpretation of Bob Dylan's Only a Hobo is one of the finest Dylan covers, while the original title track is a vivid, loving tribute to his adolescence. And that spirit is carried throughout Gasoline Alley. It's an album that celebrates tradition while moving it into the present and never once does it disown the past.

    Snakes And Ladders: The Best of Faces


    Celebrate 4 Decades Of Rod Stewart/faces With Their Greatest Hits LP From 1976!!


    First Time 180 Gram Vinyl Presentation


    Mastered From The Original Warner Bros. Tapes


    In 1976, superstars Rod Stewart/Faces were rewarded by their label Warner Bros. with their first
    greatest hits album, Snakes and Ladders/The Best of Faces. Featuring the classic line-up of Rod Stewart,
    Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones), Kenney Jones (Small Faces, The Who, The Law), Ronnie Lane (Small
    Faces), Ian McLagan (Small Faces, Bonnie Raitt) and Tetsu Yamamuchi, the Snakes and Ladders album
    has become one of their most loved works in their stunning gold and platinum career.


    With hard pub-rock classics like Stay With Me and Around the Plynth and brilliant rock standards
    like Ooh La La and Flying, the Snakes and Ladders album would go on to become one of the best-selling
    albums in their extensive catalog. The long out of print original version of this greatest hits masterpiece
    also includes the only appearance of the super rare Pineapple and the Monkey.


    Dig deeper into the grooves and there you find even more rock and blues belters like the masterful
    Miss Judy's Farm, the powerful rocker Had Me a Real Good Time, plus the English folk-rock ballad Sweet
    Lady Mary, making Snakes and Ladders/The Best of Faces one of the finest overviews ever of this sorely
    missed supergroup.


    Therefore it is with much excitement to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release
    of the legendary Rod Stewart/Faces greatest hits masterpiece Snakes and Ladders/The Best of Faces.
    Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering, this stunning LP was
    long overdue for an audiophile vinyl release.


    In addition to all the great album tracks, this collection also gathers up rare single only tracks like You
    Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything, truly making this LP the five star masterwork that it is. We believe
    this wonderful new audiophile release of Snakes and Ladders/The Best of Faces will become one of the
    most anticipated classic rock releases of the summer!

    Bo Diddley's Beach Party

    From The Original Chess/Checker Masters In Glorious Mono


    Faithful Reproduction Of The Original Artwork


    It's the beach party of your dreams. Not one of those with the squeaky-clean suburban kids doing the frug at Malibu like in the movies, oh no. This is Myrtle Beach, filled with dangerous bikers and gang members and hot mamas and escaped convicts and god knows who else (best not to ask), all cruising for kicks. It's after midnight but the heat still lingers from a blistering day. Except for a small bonfire, the dark is all-enveloping; couples vanish into it and you'd best be looking elsewhere. At the fire, some guy's carving his initials into his hand with a pen knife, and two babes are noodle-dancing to the waves, or maybe just the voices in their heads. They need music, dammit. Just then, a cloud of dust materializes at the far end of the boardwalk, heading your way, getting closer by the minute. As it approaches, you can just make out the silhouette of a rather large man atop a little motor scooter, some crazy looking guitar slung over his shoulder. Who IS this guy? The scooter chugs to a stop at your feet, and off steps the only musician in the known world who could play this party without having the shit kicked out of him. Bo Diddley.


    He plugs in, kicks off a scorching guitar riff. The band falls in. And the place goes totally batshit. Miraculously, someone thought to bring along a tape recorder. The result: Bo Diddley's Beach Party, the absolute pinnacle of vicarious musical thrills. Presented in its original, glorious, Distort-O-Phonic mono, this sweaty grungefest kicks ass from start to finish.


    Lots of albums claim to be essential, groundbreaking, and all that crap, and pointyheaded rock crits fawn over cosmic lyrical brainfarts and diminished ninths and such. Bo Ddiddley's Beach Party just kicks sand in their faces and dares you not to dance.


    Sundazed earnestly believes that you have no business calling yourself a rock 'n roll fan, an r&b maven, or even a sentient human being unless this album is in your collection, that's how crucial it is. In fact, don't even talk to us until it's in your hands. We mean it.

    Corridor Of Faces


    Limited To 500 Copies On Translucent Clear/Green Vinyl


    In a genre built on obscured and unsung genius, Corridor Of Faces transcends and stands out as a true psych masterpiece. Rising above any number of recently unearthed late-60s anglo-pop platters, the sole offering from small town Massachusetts phenomenon Lazy Smoke is a cohesive, solid, classic album in every sense. Ten songs that weave into one-another, painting some beautifully drifting sonic pictures as they go.

    Distortions

    Minneapolis was their home turf. But in the decades that followed, appreciation for Distortions swelled to tidal wave proportions among fans of amped-up, ramped-up, balls-to-the-wall rock'n'roll. Headlined by two red-hot, stone-cold killers, "Action Woman" and "Soul Searchin'"-both penned by producer Warren Kendrick-Distortions is arguably the greatest private-press garage band album of the era.


    The Litter formed in 1966 as a merger between two popular Twin Cities combos, the Victors and the Tabs. They quickly established a reputation as the wildest, loudest band on the scene. Bill Strandlof was responsible for the incendiary, feedback-laced guitar work on "Action Woman"-a local hit for the band when released as a single in January 1967-but by the summer he'd been replaced by another fast-fingered guitar slinger, Zippy Caplan. Caplan's fiery leads helped ignite the remainder of Distortions, including smoking interpretations of the Who's "Substitute," the Small Faces' "Whatcha Gonna Do About It," an intense reading of "Codine," and a comprehensive reconstruction-destruction of "I'm A Man."


    Sundazed is thrilled to present the first-ever from-the-masters vinyl reissue of Distortions, housed in the dead-cool original artwork and pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Pure, unfiltered '60s garage rock excitement is just a needle-drop away.

    Nobody Knows

    The last time I came across the Len Price 3 was in 2010 and this album give me about as much pleasure as that last one did - lots.


    If you were to define a 'London' sound of the sixties then this is it. There are echoes of The Kinks and The Who as well as later London bands like Madness but they are a quintessentially original outfit and there is nothing here that sniffs of copying.


    Their spare beat laden pop is wonderfully edgy, especially on the Farfisa laden 'Swing Like A Monkey' but the best of them is on tracks that echo the songs and the bands of the sixties, telling stories of grandparents and odd acquaintances. 'My Grandad Jim' - rocky garage punk telling a story of an old soldier seen through the eyes of a teenager. The gonzoid guitar break is worth the price of the album on its own. Or then there is 'Vultures' with its stomping Beatle-esque stomp and a very Kinks meets Small Faces sound: the horn break is magic.


    They can do the sad stuff too on tracks like 'Lonely': wistful and with harmonies that they heard on the West Coast it would make a great single.
    'Preying Mantis' is a stunning piece of garage punk, spare and harsh, the sound is pure beat era but the theme is as modern as tomorrow or as old as last week.
    'Medway Sun' is a real gem. Bucolic and wistful, definitely should be the pick for a single and definitely a theme for a forgotten part of the country.
    Final track 'The London Institute' has just about everything - redolent of youth and reminiscence and with a Who-like sound that sticks in the mind and takes you back to listen again and again.


    Every track has an identity and seems to reference a different element of the sixties sound but every track is also a tiny gem of music that can be held up to the light and marvelled at in its own right.


    The Len Price 3 are a truly fine band and deserve a greater audience - check them out and enjoy!

    Anthropos

    ''Woke up at dawn and felt a presence, nature spirits, observing me. Looked out through the window. Black shape. I went to the nearby forest and the journey had begun.Without a direct way, I went through the woods and crossed mountains. Suddenly elated by light, I was under the raven's wings. Numb. Awakened by a thud and the silhouettes of the three. Embrace. The circle was complete.'' -- Mother of God


    Born in 2008 and raised on rock in Morgårdshammar, Sweden, the four-piece Mother of God cast off a lot of the retro '70s mentality of their countrymen in favor of a more modern approach.Well, 20 years more modern, anyway. Mother of God no doubt have some appreciation for the finer things in '70s rock - there are beards to prove it - but musically they incorporate influences from grunge and the heavy grooves of the early '90s. Bands like Soundgarden and Alice in Chains mesh their downtrodden grunge melodies alongside classic inspiration drawn from Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin.


    These might sound like familiar elements - at least the names ring out - but Mother of God bring their own emotional spin to their Small Stone debut, Anthropos, and never quite cooperate with what you think they'll do next. The band has released two prior EPs - 2011's Forging a New Path and their debut - and they recorded and mixed Anthropos in BorlÄnge with Erik Nerback, Chris Goosman mastered, and Sanna Albenius, Robin Gnista and Alexander von Wieding provided art and layout design.


    In addition to festival appearances at Getaway Rock, Wacken Open Air in Germany and Peace & Love, Mother of God have shared the stage with YOB, Dozer, Graveyard, Imperial State Electric and more, and they'll look to continue their live domination in Scandinavia and beyond in support of Anthropos, shoving their eclectic sound and undeniable hooks right in the faces of everyone who thinks they know what heavy rock should sound like.

    Erode

    Straddling post-hardcore genres, Orlando's Khann blend elements of melody and abrasion to capture a sound that is both unique and familiar. While most new music trends towards extremes or becomes a mish-mash of what's hot right now, Khann have thrown a curveball by incorporating prevalent influence from the post-hardcore movement of the late '90s of bands like Small Brown Bike, Cave In and Hot Cross, an interesting about face from the sounds of the grindcore stylings of their 2007 debut, Tofutopia. The end result is refreshing albeit surprising for some. Less distorted, less screamy but much more distinct and very hard-hitting.


    Erode has a calculated ebb and flow, rising and falling like the tide as the songs weave through various emotions. Ranging in intensity from subtle to chaotic, the album focuses on themes of the erosion of self with the aura of the music mirroring the lyrical content. As the band has changed members and styles; new sounds, energy and opportunity has presented itself, reviving the group and paving the way for more profound things.


    Masterfully produced by Chris Owens (Lords, Akimbo), Erode stands as a formidable reintroduction to an amazing and interesting band as they are quickly redeveloping on the most grassroots level.

    It's Alive

    Seattle's La Luz recorded their debut EP, Damp Face, in a small trailer on a hot August day. But barring the inevitable "no-AC-in-the-van" summer tour calamity, La Luz runs cool. Their brand of coolness isn't about distance or affect; it's a mood, and-sue me, but I'm about to totally rip off Zelda Fitzgerald: Something about this music vibrates to the dusky, dreamy smell of dying moons and shadows. So yeah, that kind of cool.


    Still, La Luz's live shows, more than most these days, are about connection. It's evident that the four ridiculously talented ladies on stage are not only playing music with each other, but for each other. And they engage their audience as well. Like a proper punk band-which they are not- they give you shit for not dancing. They convey a gritty self-possession, a sense that they've been there and back again. And, like the expert, but seemingly effortless, surf licks and meandering bass lines that rise and fall throughout their songs, their mocking is playful and dreamy and disarming enough to get most of the crowd (and sometimes the keyboard player) dancing down the center line of a soul train.


    But as any half-assed Freudian will tell you, there can be no meaningful connection without first weathering some dark and lonely times. Here comes the chilly part: What makes La Luz stand out-and stand out fast-the band has only been playing together for a year and people took notice almost immediately-is that this is a band that embodies that most elusive slant on the human condition: longing, and the fleeting relief that tags alongside deep desire.


    In Spanish, La Luz means "light" and that's the perfect thing to evoke when your songs give the illusion of veering in the opposite direction. But lift out most any lyric-which is a good excuse to give a closer listen to the delicate, four-part harmonies that are fast becoming the band's signature-and you'll find that the aches and pains of love and loss, of living in a world where no foothold is ever a promise-all this is delivered with a nuanced dose of perfectly timed exhilaration, like the whole thing might just be worth it in the end.


    Last spring, La Luz returned to that steamy trailer park to record It's Alive - the much-anticipated follow up to Damp Face - with their friend and engineer Johnny Goss. From the first get-psyched drum roll and eerie chords of "Sure As Spring", the dinged-up pop gem that opens the album, the rest moves like a slow drive on a dangerous road, slinking and bending as the terrain shifts. On "What Good Am I?", the lead vocals, and the swirl of harmonies that surround it, recall the Spartan haze of Mazzy Star's misty-eyed super hit. Smack in the middle is the title track. "It's Alive" is a jangly rocker with a spooky refrain, oodles of ooohs, and a marauding narrative that nails down the misty logic of the rest of the album. Two instrumentals, "Sunstroke" and "Phantom Feelings", showcase the band's beach jam surf chops, and fall perfectly between the chilled out heartache that surrounds them.


    Imagine all of the Shangri-La's trying, precariously, to balance on top of Link Wray's surfboard.

    -- Pitchfork


    The kind of sweet surf rock with a touch of melancholy that should be the soundtrack to the slow-dancing-at-prom scene in every teen movie.

    Charles Aznavour: Collected

    Limited First Pressing Of 1,500 Individually Numbered Copies On 180 Gram French Flag Blue, White And Red Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter

    4 Page Booklet With Liner Notes And Photos

    Carefully Curated Selection Of Chansons, Including Jezebel, She, Comme Ils Disent, For Me Formidable, La BohÉme And Many More

    Duets With Frank Sinatra, Johnny Hallyday And His English Versions

    Music On Vinyl proudly presents a second release of the COLLECTED albums. The new albums will focus on memorable artists with almost a life span of original intriguing music, covering a timeless musical period!

    In the early 1950s a man of short stature attempts to win over his audience. With a hoarse voice he delivers songs that do not catch on. People jeer at him. Tomatoes fly through the air. The Frenchman with Armenian roots slinks off the stage, but does not quit.

    Ironically, the song that makes him a household name is the song in which he recalls his agonising trial. The audience reacted indifferently when Charles Aznavour decided to try out his new song on stage. But when he went on to greet the audience for one final time they all stood and gave him a thundering standing ovation.

    In the sixties, hits and classics succeed one another. Nobody is bothered any more by his husky voice, by his small stature or his rugged characterful face. The croony For Me Formidable (1963), the heart breaking Et Pourtant (1963) and the nostalgic Hier Encore (1964) confirm his standing as a fan favourite. La Bohème (1965) and Emmenez-moi (1967) turn Aznavour into a superstar.

    In La Bohème, there are impressionist painters strolling in the shadows of the SacrÉ-Coeur, the compelling Comme Ils Dissent (1972) is the first chanson after Vichy France to overtly endorse homo sexuality and in the present France Of La Manif Pour Tous (the movement that opposes gay marriage), does it again to sound particularly topical. Camarade (1977) was about the nomenklatura, the ruling elite in the Soviet Union and is a social and historical topic. Avec Un Brin De Nostalgie is an Aznavour grand cru, maybe even the best he has made over the last thirty years.

    COLLECTED by Charles Aznavour is a wonderful collection of hits and classic by the French artist that touches your soul at every moment. It's an overview of his work during the sixties, seventies and duets with Johnny Hallyday on Il Faut Savoir and with Frank Sinatra Young At Heart. Also his English versions of How Sad Venice Can Be, The Old Fashioned Way, She and four more English songs are included on this deluxe Trifold 3LP album.

    The tour combined small theatres and huge stadiums. The Fort Worth show had capacity for just 3000. The 1978 tour began in Lakeland, Florida on the 10th June, by the time they arrived in Texas the Stones had played 19 shows. Billboard magazine said of the tour, "No flash, no gimmicks, just rock 'n' roll." The band included Mick, Keith, Charlie, Ronnie, Bill and Ian Stewart on piano (the day of the Fort Worth show was his 40th birthday) as well as Ronnie's former Faces bandmate keyboard player (and now Texas resident) Ian 'Mac' McLagan.

    Founding member of Carcass and former Napalm Death guitarist Bill Steer is back with the latest offering from his main passion Firebird. Double Diamond, the bands sixth studio album, is by far the most hard-hitting yet.
    Moving on from the Humble Pie/Small Faces inspired blues and boogie rock of previous outings, Double Diamond takes in more classic metal elements bringing to mind the likes of Thin Lizzy, Budgie and Diamond Head. Certainly their heaviest outing to date; theres no stopping Mr. Steer when it comes to effortlessly delivering the goods in true organic style!

    Strange Weekend (Awaiting Repress)

    Strange Weekend is Porcelain Rafts debut record, yet in many ways its his 156th. Somewhere in New York, Rome, or maybe London, there is a suitcase full of tapes, minidiscs and CDs, days and days worth of music, all of it the result of Mauro Remiddis 27 years of travels across Europe, from his native Italy to London; of caravaning with the Berlin Youth Circus playing traditional gypsy Klezmer music; of reinterpreting traditional music in North Korea; and of a stint playing piano for an Off Broadway tap dance show.


    Amazingly, Strange Weekend, with deep roots in so many times and places, is an album that beautifully captures the fleeting right now. Remiddis interest in movement, about capturing a momentary now en route to the next, is apparent; postcards and polaroids of buildings and faces from the street flicker past. The projects genesis lies in this visual imagery. Over the past year, Remiddi has compiled a catalogue of images, gathered from the various nooks and crannies of the internet, that have served as notes, inspiration, context and a map for Porcelain Rafts music.


    Remiddis androgynous vapor of a voice weaves like a ghost between Nick Gilder and The Alessi Brothers, Julee Cruise and Judee Sill. In more contemporary terms, Porcelain Raft stands confidently on a high hill between the sounds of M83 and Beach House. Lead track Drifting In and Out is loping and anthemic; gauzy and chiming. Shapeless and Gone follows with a heavy strum reminiscent of Cosmic Dancer, full of mood and style without all the wearying excesses and feathered boas. Porcelain Rafts thesis statement hits when side-B kicks off with Unless You Speak From Your Heart. Remiddis enigmatic vocals carrying a hook so simple that you might think you sang it first; keys and bass that might make the needle jump off of your turntable; and a sense of raw sincerity that has come to trademark Remiddis songs is what ultimately resonates.


    And here, the myriad travels crystallize into something visceral; you may not be able to see the visuals Remiddi holds so dear, but you can feel them throughout Strange Weekend, and they stay with you as you travel on. Strange Weekend might have been made in a small place (a Brooklyn basement, in fact), but it is huge dream-pop, with melodies and synths billowing out in all directions.

    Ranked 306/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Songs for Swingin' Lovers! is the tenth studio album recorded by the American singer Frank Sinatra for Capitol Records, it was arranged by Nelson Riddle and released in March 1956.


    It took an alternative tack after In the Wee Small Hours (1954), recording existing pop standards in a hipper, jazzier fashion, revealing an overall exuberance in the vein of Songs for Young Lovers and Swing Easy!. The original cover had Sinatra facing away from the young couple, but in 1957 Capitol altered the cover with a new image of Sinatra facing the couple.


    The album was the first ever number one album in the UK.

    Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines

    Quazarz vs. the Jealous Machines is one of two new albums by interstellar hip-hop enigma Shabazz Palaces, aka Ishmael Butler (who, in another galaxy, performs in Digable Planets) and Tendai Maraire. Quazarz vs. the Jealous Machines, and its companion, Quazarz: Born On a Gangster Star, were both produced by Knife Knights (i.b e.b.) and mixed by Blood.

    Quazarz came to the Earth from somewhere else, a musical ambassador from his place to ours. Somehow, through fire or through fury, the Palaceer of Shabazz Palaces caught wind of the tale, and it is through his prism that we hear the story.

    The beach was there, and Atlaantiis, and chemical alterations and cell memories and Andre Norton, Richard K. Morgan, and always Octavia Butler. There were killings and there were votes, and brutality in both. There was sound and there were other worlds, and there was a vastness so participation sometimes came only at the edges. And the Palaceer coasted down with the alien notion, like Quazarz, and so became.

    On Quazarz when they look at this place they see the inhabitants, the humans, but they don't assess as we do. And so Quazarz was sent to meet a cat with vibration, a creative and courageous, caring, compassionate dude that stood out. The dude was a drug dealer, but that was neither here nor there, until his dealings squashed the rendezvous, leaving our alien alone to figure out what this place is really all about.

    Coming from a simpler, more essential, innocent place, the hero could not make heads nor tails of most advancements. From an aerial view, he saw that a good percentage of earthly vibrations were on very small squares and it became his belief that this world was very disposable and the spans short. His opinion was not of anything good nor bad but simply the truth. The machines-he noted-though at the behest of their master's voice, are scorned, and jealous as all hell.

    And so the tale is told while surfing on the board of Shabazz Palaces, with its sturdy base angled for takeoff on a new trajectory. There is new blood and space and room to be different and have different assets and different art and different ways to talk and also open up some space inside to do something new. There are pages and there are drawings, and color and faces and inked dialogues written in ancient futuristic hieroglyph. There are scales and there is melody and there are Sunny days and there is Darkness, but that-it should be noted-to the Palaceer is not a lack of illumination or brightness. Maybe it is dark, but in it is always optimism and joy, a bright darkness and a full, hopeful one as well.

    XVIII

    Eighteen Visions are back! They have returned after a 10 year hiatus, bringing with them
    their explosive new offering, XVIII. While 10 years have passed since the band's last effort,
    Eighteen Visions have retained their ability to craft hardcore rock anthems that are both
    melodic and metal at the same time. They've picked up right where they left off, and XVIII
    is proof with 10 in your face songs that are both aggressive and canorous.


    Eighteen Visions were always a bit ahead of their time, but they were one of the few bands that were able to
    make the jump from headlining small sweaty clubs in America to becoming a full force rock
    band headlining major tours and festivals all around the world and supporting larger acts like
    Avenged Sevenfold, Coheed and Cambria, Hinder, Bullet for My Valentine and HIM.


    Eighteen Visions have always had a very loyal following that felt more like a family than a fan
    base, which led to their global success and dominance. Because of this, Eighteen Visions' past
    albums have been consumed over 200,000 times in the US alone.


    Eighteen Visions didn't reunite for any reason other than their love of making music together,
    and a desire to once again share their love of aggression with the world. XVIII feels like a
    gift, not just to the rabid fan base the band left behind, but to the legacy they created.
    XVIII is an album that will be appreciated and valued for years to come.

    The Ghost Who Walks

    On her debut disc, The Ghost Who Walks, Karen Elson spins intriguingly unsettling tales of lost love, dashed hope, romantic betrayal and various crimes of passion witnessed only by the full moon. In a coolly inviting voice, strumming an acoustic guitar, she summons up a dark yet seductive atmosphere, an after-midnight world that's irresistibly alluring. The arrangements for her small band - featuring the virtuosic Jackson Smith on guitar, Elson's longtime collaborator Rachelle Garniez on accordion and vocals, and husband-producer Jack White on drums -- evoke the lonesome side of country (''Cruel Summer'') or the tormented side of the blues (''The Truth Is In the Dirt''), with eerie organ touches, and keening electric guitars.


    Until now, the British-born Elson has been better known as a top model, the face of ad campaigns for, among others, Armani, Prada, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent's Poison. With her pale white skin and shocking red hair, she seems an almost otherworldly presence on any given glossy page. While she assiduously worked as the face of various brands, she conducted an altogether different life behind the scenes as a singer and songwriter, honing what has proven to be her considerable skills. In part, she learned by doing: for the last five years, she's been a member, alongside Garniez, in the Weimar-style cabaret of New York City-based art and music collective The Citizens Band. Two of her more theatrical tracks, ''100 Years From Now'' and ''Mouths To Feed,'' inspired in part by author Tim Egan's dust bowl saga, The Worst Hard Time, were originally penned for her troupe, which combines bawdy entertainment with barbed political commentary.


    The Ghost Who Walks may not be drawn literally from Elson's life, but it does represent an aspect of her psyche she's been brave enough to explore: ''I'm very much interested in the dark side of things. In my life, truthfully, I've had a lot of bizarre and dark experiences that have definitely colored the way I think about a lot of personal things. The music I have always listened to as well has had a sorrowful, mournful, if not murderous, quality to it.'' She pauses to laugh. ''I'm not saying I would ever want to kill anybody, but sometimes love can drag you to the very depths of yourself and - my God - make you so desperate and forlorn. I really respond to songs that write about that. Hank Williams, for crying out loud, speaking of being forlorn and forsaken -- there's a song I just heard of his, an early demo, that really resonated with me. Those songs move me in a way that happy go lucky songs don't.''

    Pull It Together

    Pull It Together is Shannon Stephens' third album. Vulnerability has been replaced with a fierce confidence born of experience. Stephens sings out now with a voice free of youthful self-consciousness, filled instead with conviction, and no small amount of anger at the state of the world. She has always distilled powerful emotions into her music but this time the emotional dial is cranked.


    From the sweetly swaggering "What Love Looks Like" to the searing "Your Fabulous Friends," she balances cynicism with generous quantities of warmth, humor and empathy. Never is this fine balance more apparent than on "Faces Like Ours" where Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham) weaves his voice with hers in a duet that wryly dissects the injustice of racial and economic privilege.


    The result of this new approach is an album that is gritty, fluid, and more accessible than her previous work. Call it pragmatic pop, optimism balanced with the sharp-edged reality of life in 2012.

    Spirit Of The Golden Juice

    The world that inspired Spirit of The Golden Juice nearly 50 years ago has moved on. F.J. McMahon moved on with it.

    Originally pressed in a small quantity and scattered along the California coastline in 1969, F.J. McMahon's first and only album, Spirit Of The Golden Juice, is a spell-binding blend of singer-songwriter emotion and spiraling guitar accompaniment with a raw, adventurous character all its own.

    Well-chronicled and loved since its rediscovery, Spirit Of The Golden Juice is an album concerned with memory and mystery and the preservation of the two. It's also about the weight of personal experience and how we tow it around with us.

    F.J.'s simple, personal approach to songwriting allows us the space to fill in our own colors and our own faces. Its themes are there in plain sight, but the questions it asks are sometimes left for us to answer for ourselves.
