    Strange Days

    Ranked 407/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Mastered by Doug Sax using an all-tube system. Overseen by Bruce Botnick, The Doors producer/engineer.

    Two 45 rpm LPs pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings



    Part of The Doors reissue series proudly presented by Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings!


    Analogue Productions presents all six of the Doors studio titles on 200g 45RPM 2LP pressed at Quality Record Pressings as well as The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting For The Sun and L.A. Woman on Hybrid multi-channel SACD, all cut from the original analog masters by Doug Stax, with the exception being The Doors which was made from the best tape copy available.


    Sax and the Doors producer/engineer Bruce Botnick have gone through a meticulous setup to guarantee a positively stunning reissue series. These masters were recorded on all-tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is also a tube machine, as is the cutting system.


    Although most of the material for their 1967 sophomore album was written around the same time as their debut which was released earlier in the same year, the songs on the genre-bending Strange Days still manage to possess their own distinct and foreboding character. The equally as impressive follow-up yielded the touchstone hits "Love Me Two Times" and "People Are Strange" as well as the the fan favorites "Moonlight Drive," "Strange Days" and "When The Music's Over." Here on 200g 45RPM 2LP.

    Strange Days

    Ranked 407/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The Band Concludes Their 50th Anniversary Year By Revisiting Strange Days With Original Mono Mix On Vinyl.


    Although most of the songs on the Doors' 1967 sophomore release had been written around the same time as their self-titled debut, Strange Days still manages to possess its own distinct and foreboding character. The album made it all the way to #3 on the charts and introduced the Doors classics People Are Strange, Love Me Two Times, Strange Days and When the Music's Over.


    With an intoxicating, genre-blending sound, provocative and uncompromising songs, and the mesmerizing power of singer Jim Morrison's poetry and presence, The Doors had a transformative impact not only on popular music but on popular culture. The Doors' arrival on the rock scene in 1967 marked not only the start of a string of hit singles and albums that would become stone classics, but also of something much bigger - a new and deeper relationship between creators and audience.


    They released six studio albums in all, as well as a live album and a compilation, before Morrison's death in 1971. Their electrifying achievements in the studio and onstage were unmatched in the annals of rock. In the decades since The Doors' heyday, the foursome has loomed ever larger in the pantheon of rock - and they remain a touchstone of insurrectionary culture for writers, activists, visual artists and other creative communities.

    Strange Country

    New West Records is proud to present Strange Country, the new full-length album from the young and gifted cousin-duo Kacy & Clayton. The ten-song collection was recorded over seven freezing Canadian winter days at Ghetto Box Studios, a historic community hall turned studio. The product of a lifetime of deep kinship, the record showcases the purity and astounding beauty of Kacy Anderson's voice, one that has been notably compared to Fairport Convention's Sandy Denny. Only Clayton Linthicum's intricate guitar work, expert time changes and vocal harmonies could forge the foundation for Kacy's voice to soar even higher - the result being an enormously satisfying and organic album. Drawing a wide swath of inspirations ranging from the Greenwich Village folk scene to the ancestral music of Southern Appalachia and the British Isles, the cousins fashion songs steeped in those traditions, simultaneously paying homage and building on those sounds.

    Play It Strange (Discontinued)

    In The Red is proud to announce the release of the new full-length from San Francisco's Fresh & Onlys, Play It Strange. After two albums (on Castle Face and Woodsist, respectively) and too many singles and EPs to count, The Fresh & Onlys deliver their most solid outing yet. Recorded by studio whiz Tim Green during an eight-day session, Play It Strange marks the band's first recording in an actual recording studio. On 2 analog tape! The results are nothing short of incredible. For those unfamiliar with The Fresh & Onlys, their sound draws from jangly psychedelia, Morricone-style Western twang, dark vibes a la Bad Seeds/Gun Club, melodic '60s sunshine pop and a hint of garage rock swagger.

    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.

    Strange Weather, Isn't It?

    Everyones got a Berlin record in them and I guess we just wanted to see what
    ours would sound like, !!!s lead singer Nic Offer says, with tongue partially in
    cheek, of the groups fourth album, Strange Weather, Isnt It? Following in the
    footsteps of artists like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Depeche Mode, who have
    flocked to Berlin in order to mainline the citys legendary dark energy, !!! traveled
    to the German capital to produce a record that is simultaneously brooding and
    somehow their poppiest, most immediate record yet. !!! has also managed to
    create the best distillation of the chaos, fun and intensity of !!!'s live show yet.
    Strange Weather, Isnt It? was co-produced by the band with Eric Broucek,
    who used to be the house engineer for DFA Records. We used everything we
    could MacGyvered it together with a popsicle stick and a rubber band to make
    it work and Eric was definitely instrumental in making that happen, says Offer.
    The result is an album that is leaner and more detailed than any of !!!s previous
    albums. In the early days wed put something deep in the mix, so that kids on
    acid could hear it the 20th time they listened to it, says Offer. Now weve
    learned how to make records better. Its like the deep techno you hear in Berlin;
    its molded down to its most basic essence, almost like a sculpture that you keep
    working on to make it both denser and clearer at the same time. Offer pauses
    for a moment to consider what hes saying. Dont get me wrong, though, you
    should still check the record out on acid. Trust me.

    The Brink is the second album from the Jezabels, and follows their gold accredited album 'Prisoner' (and 3 gold accredited EPs). It is an utterly fearless record of youthful optimism achieved through hard won experience, taut with gleaming hooks, indelible melodies, all hammered out by a tight-knit band through dark days in a strange new city. It was recorded in London under the guidance of producer Dan Grech-Marguerat (Moby, Scissors Sisters, Lana Del Rey, The Vaccines, The Kooks).

    London Fog 1966


    Collector's Edition Boxed Set Features Previously Unheard Concert Recordings From 1966 On CD And Vinyl


    Includes 8 x 10 Prints Of Unseen Photos And Replica Memorabilia


    Before The Doors took the music scene by storm in 1967, they were the house band at the London Fog, a Sunset Strip dive bar located just footsteps away from the world famous Whisky a Go Go, the future home of many of the band's most legendary performances. The Doors will open a virtual time capsule in December with LONDON FOG 1966, a Collector's Edition boxed set that features unearthed audio recorded at the club in May 1966. Previously unreleased and not even known to exist until recently, this marks the earliest recordings of the band and finds the quartet mixing blues covers with early versions of Doors originals.


    LONDON FOG 1966 will be available as an individually numbered limited edition of 18,000 copies from Rhino/Bright Midnight Archives. Presented in a lift-top package designed to look like a vintage storage box, the set features seven songs on both CD and a 10-inch record that's made to resemble a test pressing. Noted Doors engineer Bruce Botnick recently mastered the audio for this collection.


    Along with the unreleased music, the set is packed with memorabilia and historic liner notes to provide a true time capsule of that fabled night at the London Fog, including a poster, the set list handwritten by John Densmore, a program for the Royce Hall UCLA student film screening, plus a London Fog coaster. There are also liner notes included from Sunset Strip legend Ronnie Haran-Mellen, who was the talent booker at the Whisky a Go Go. Haran-Mellen saw The Doors live for the first time at the London Fog and then booked them as the permanent house band at the Whisky, leading to the band's signing to Elektra and meteoric rise to superstardom.


    Also contributing liner notes is Nettie Peña, one of the lucky few to be in attendance at the London Fog for this fabled show. Peña was a pivotal force in this release coming together as she captured the audio on a ¼" reel to reel recorder, which was the property of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Her father was a teacher for LAUSD and let her borrow the recorder to take to the show. Peña also photographed the band that evening and five black and white 8x10 reprints of these unpublished photos are included in the Collector's Edition, featuring a fresh-faced Morrison on a cramped stage with John Densmore, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek.


    The show featured on LONDON FOG 1966 took place the same year that The Doors recorded their eponymous debut. Released in January 1967, the album would become one of the most influential in rock history. Like many of the band's early concerts, the show captured on this deluxe set reflects the group's deep love for the blues with covers of standards like Muddy Waters' "Rock Me" and "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man." The set also includes raw performances of "Baby, Please Don't Go" (Big Joe Williams), "Don't Fight It" (Wilson Pickett), and "Lucille" (Little Richard).


    During their residency at the London Fog, The Doors frequently worked out new songs on stage that would eventually appear on various studio albums. At this show, the band played two originals. The first, "Strange Days," would become the title track for the band's second studio album, which also came out in 1967. This is one of the only known live recordings of this track. The other Doors original, "You Make Me Real," wasn't officially released on a studio album until Morrison Hotel in 1970.


    "To hear 'Strange Days,' that came out on their second album, in almost final shape so early on was truly amazing," says Jac Holzman, the President of Elektra Records who signed The Doors to their first recording contract.


    Going back to the band's earliest days is a natural starting point for The Doors 50th anniversary celebration.

    G Funk Classics Volumes 1 & 2

    Nate Dogg is one of the greatest singers in hip-hop's history; his ultra-smooth, church-honed voice was the key ingredient in dozens of classic singles throughout the '90s and '00s.


    He apparently never got paid for many of his early Death Row hits, and he finally left the label to release this, his long-awaited debut solo album. Upon dropping independently in 1998, it never got much exposure. Yet years later, it still impresses with 31 tracks absolutely overflowing with Nate's inimitable vocals and top-notch G-funk production from the likes of Daz Dillinger, QD3, and Warren G, among others.


    The lyrics mostly concern ladies, homies, and the streets, with his uncanny ability to bounce between bravado and a sensitive lover-man style showcased throughout. Nate Dogg remains the soul of hip-hop, and his amazing music should live on forever. Highlights here include Because I Got a Girl, She's Strange, Friends, These Days, and Nobody Does It Better.

    Pond Scum

    There are no Peel sessions anymore - that tradition was buried in the pyramids with John Peel himself upon the great man's passing. Of the thousands left in the wake, six are ascribed to Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - and of those six, three have been combined to form the deeply congruous experience of Pond Scum. A span of eight years is covered, in reverse, and many chestnuts are rolled out, freed of former contexts with sparse arrangements. (I Was Drunk at the) Pulpit feels, ten years from inception, more vividly worn; Death to Everyone is loosed from its frame, the bones decoupled and spread out, giving the song a reective air (as opposed the biting declamation of the original); Arise, Therefore adapts its metronomic base, the evangelic twist of its roots made palpable. With the center of the performance in stark relief, the gnomic qualities of two Get On Jolly pieces are intensied. Further accenting the devoted spirit of this collection is the inclusion of Bonnie's take on Prince's The Cross, as well as the previously-unreleased original Beezle.


    Bonnie's lone shadow casts over this lot, accompanied on the rst four tracks by David Heumann, but otherwise playing solo through a set of original songs (and two covers) representing a decade of progress in the almost unbearably intimate-yet-unknowable manner that was so often the vibe of those strange and wondrous days. Layers peel to reveal the subtle artistry and refinement contained within these sessions, so begin to dig deep into the vault!

    Tomorrow's Hits

    After spending much of 2011 and 2012 on the road, including a trip upstate to
    write and record New Moon, their fourth full-length in as many years, The Men
    needed a break. They decided to take the winter of 2012 off to work on new
    material in Brooklyn. The converted founding member Mark Perro's bedroom
    in Bushwick into a practice space and rehearsed there nearly every day for three
    months, cutting more than 40 demos. By the end of that winter, the Men had
    pared that crop of songs down to 13. With their plans to take a break foiled by
    their own work ethic, they decided to record those songs before New Moon came
    out. They booked two days at Brooklyn's Strange Weather studios, clocked in,
    and tracked all 13 songs entirely live, even including a horn section.


    Eight songs from those sessions made the final cut for The Men's new LP,
    Tomorrow's Hits. This is their first album recorded in a high-end studio and,
    appropriately, the result is their most high fidelity album to date. That being said,
    it is still an incredibly straightforward record. Tomorrow's Hits is a concise
    collection of songs that nonetheless expands the band's ever-evolving musical
    palette. It's full of genre-bending risks, but it reinforces the overarching theme
    that has come to define its makers: The Men are a great rock band.

The group's four members recognize the importance of life's omnipresent cycles on their sixth full-length album, Once More 'Round the Sun. The band orbits around themes of loss and rebirth, twirling a sonic spiral of its signature robust riffing, hypnotically haunting soundscapes, triage of dynamic voices, and thundering seismic grooves.


    The very title says something slightly different for each member. Quite literally, Once More 'Round the Sun means a year-in-the-life, explains Dailor. Lyrically, we were discussing things that happened to us recently, whereas in the past we looked further back for inspiration. It's about 365 days in this band. It was a tough and strange journey. We happened to be in the middle of completing a full rotation musically as everything else was going on.

    Mythomania

    Cryptacize deals in the unforgettable melody, the forsaken chord and the extravagant sentiment. The surefooted and richly nuanced vocal arabesques of Nedelle Torrisi, like a modern day Freddie Mercury or Ronnie Spector, strangely complement the guitar of Chris Cohen, which sounds like a maniacally sped-up a la Les Paul or staccato and funny like Roy Smeck or Adolph Jacobs of the Coasters. Syncopated drum corps rudiments and pit-orchestra rave-ups from Michael Carreira propel the songs with a refreshingly buoyant touch that never lapses into rock music clich?s. There are also widescreen cinematic moments that take on a mournful and otherworldly pathos, like Experiment in Terror by Henry Mancini, but with vocals by Cambodian 60's pop legend Ros Serey Sothea or like Arabic diva Fairouz singing along to a psychedelic film score by Popol Vuh.

    I Dreamt I Was A Cowboy

    Miniature Tigers mastermind Charlie Brand has been in a relationship with actress Mae Whitman for a while now, and things seem to be going great. How do I know this? Well, there are interviews from both Brand and Whitman out there that say so, but for the purposes of this review, Exhibit A is the new Miniature Tigers record. I Dreamt I Was a Cowboy is a loose concept album about being in love, complete with sappy ballads, angst that it's all going to fall apart, and even the concept album staple-a dream sequence.


    Two things are striking about this album from the get-go. There's a warmth and intimacy to opener "My Girl Forever" that sticks around for the length of the album. Brand, it turns out, is pretty good at producing indie-pop that sounds honestly romantic. That warmth makes a cheesy sentiment like, "You will be my friend forever / You will be my girlfriend" sound lovely. The other thing is the song's opening electric guitar riff, which sounds slightly out of tune. That riff runs through the entire song and eventually normalizes even though it never ends up being quite in tune. It's a weird element and a portent that Brand is going to re-embrace the off-kilter sounds that dominated Miniature Tigers' early records.


    "Dreaming" is a relaxed, slightly Caribbean-styled song dominated by a bassline played on a bass marimba and a repeating high register xylophone-esque note run. Both are cool effects that give the song a nice groove. This leads right into "I Dreamt I Was a Cowboy", where Whitman takes the lead vocals. Her breathy, quiet singing fits in snugly with the song's languid vibe. "I Dreamt I Was a Cowboy" also works as a transition point on the album. Afterward, the songs are more idiosyncratic and often more interesting.


    "Wish It Was Now" is a '60s-style folk song that hits all the right buttons. A pile of acoustic guitars is accompanied by a jangling tambourine while Brand sings possibly the best melody on the album. The multi-layered vocals on the chorus, a simple recitation of "wish it was now", are beautiful, and it all meshes together into a sublime moment. "Wheat" features a prominent pedal steel guitar and some nicely placed percussion rattles, giving the song a light Texas country feel.


    Then there's "Nobody Else", which features an out-of-nowhere sample of obscure '60s singer Millie Small with her lovely high-pitched squeak of a voice. The song opens with Small singing "What am I living for / If not for you, baby!", then uses that "baby!" as the song's anchor and hype man, punctuating many of Brand's lines. The song itself is a catchy, piano-based ballad with a warm '70s soft rock bridge, but the sample sells it. It's so effective that once you've heard the song a few times, you want to hear her "baby!" at the end of every line, not just occasionally.


    The record ends with two quiet songs, either of which would make a solid closer, but they represent two different moods. "I Never Want Our Love to End" is sparsely arranged with great harmonies, but the overwhelming feeling is melancholy as Brand sings about his insecurities. "I'm Awake Now" uses both chirpy and lush synths to provide a sunny, relaxed, early morning feel. Lyrically, though, the song starts out depressed as Brand contemplates the fact that he's so damn happy in bed with his new girl but that they're both going to have to leave, and it will be over. But the song ends with him deciding that he's going to do whatever it takes to make what's apparently a one-night stand into a relationship.


    This kind of unabashed romanticism shouldn't really work. And in the past, Miniature Tigers' attempts at straight-up love songs haven't always been successful. But Brand's honesty goes a long way here, and his willingness to use unusual sounds cuts through the cheese to make the album just a bit weird. I Dreamt I Was a Cowboy ends up effectively splitting the difference between the band's early days of twee sounds with strange lyrics and their middle period of big hooks but not very distinctive sounds.

    Pink Graffiti (Discontinued)

    Drawing on fractured psych, girl groups and minimalist composers, Secret Cities have conjured a kaleidoscopic, strangely moving whole out of disparate pieces. Distorted loops, drones, and thundering toms underpin distant voices. Pianos are pounded. Grainy acoustic guitars come through like AM transmissions received deep underground. But even as strange sounds and frequencies get pushed out front, the melodies get top billing. From the galloping heartbreak of opener Pink City to the final, cathartic release of The End, Pink Graffiti is pop music turned in on itself.

    Abyss

    Sleep paralysis plagues singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe, and that strange intersection of the conscious and the unconscious has inadvertently manifested itself within her work. Across the span of her first four albums, there is an underlying tension, a distorted and nebulous territory where dark shadows hover along the edges of the sublime and the graceful. But until now, Wolfe''s trials and tribulations with the boundaries between dreams and reality have only been a subconscious influence on her work. With her fifth album, Abyss, she deliberately confronts those boundaries and crafts a score to that realm she describes as, 'the "hazy afterlife , an inverted thunderstorm , and the dark backward the abyss of time."'

    East Is East

    In East is East, Pepi Ginsberg and her collaborators step into the golden hour of the day and embrace The most ephemeral of seasons. A mood and a time where we know that change is coming in the form of a cool wind; we hold on until we let go. The song 'Summer Sick as Love' accomplishes this feeling, with its mythical descriptions of gutter punks and wind ravaged stop-signs. Ginsberg, with arrangements expertly handled by her band, creates a world with East is East, that is the season in between, and parts the waters, navigating change in the sea of these strange times.

    Hive Mind

    If youve heard Daniel Martin-McCormicks name recently, it would have been either in association with his disco / punk / echo band Mi Ami, or as Sex Worker on the Not Not Fun label, or as Ital on NNFs sister label 100% Silk. Raised in Washington, DC, Martin-McCormick has a history in the citys hardcore scenehe was in Dischord Records band Black Eyes in the early 2000sbut was also making dance-inspired tracks during the same period, coming from a very different angle than the average guy with a copy of Logic Pro and a working knowledge of dance musics history.


    Martin-McCormicks music is a stranger thing. Hive Mind, his debut full-length under the Ital moniker, uses houses easygoing 4/4 structure as a kind of camouflage for more out-there sonic explorations, subverting expectations, seeking the links between dubs space- and sound-bending, industrials unsettling sonics and the effects and black holes of minimal at its weirdest. The album has a sculptured feel: sounds twist in space while melodies pitch-shift in an unsettling way, voices fade in and out, nothing is ever allowed to settle comfortably, everything vibrates.


    Opener Doesnt Matter (If You Love Him) sounds a bit like Tackhead if they had made house music, using a flickering and confidently repeated phrase over a lumbering drum and bass line, introducing swirling and bombing synths into the mix once the secret comes out. The strange marriage of treated voices and swelling, pitch-bent chords and effects on Floridian Void draws the listener into its strange atmosphere; its an ambient house track of sorts, but the ambience here is a swirling, confusing, watery vortex rather than fuzzy, new age pap. Privacy Settings builds creepy wolf howls over a slow bass line and cold, far-away drums, estranged from their usual disco setting, while Israel picks things up again, with weird, pitch-shifting bells over dubby toms and cold chords. Final Wave restores the album to something resembling normality, with a disco-like swing that recalls Moodymanns beat-down productions slid through brutal dub-like effects that bring out a shade of strangeness in an otherwise happy groove.

    Is Forever No Way

    Hope I Die Virgin have, with their chaste and low key mix of rainy British indie and Dischord sound, been a cult band reserved for a few seeking souls. Two self released EP's, the most recent produced by Emil Nikolaisen of Serena Maneesh, received nods of approval from besserwissers. Still the band with the strange name have been walking by themselves in the murky mud on the banks of Oslo's underground, barely visible for the past two years.


    Hope I Die Virgin let the world be and created an alternate reality in Harrys Gym studio through innumerable sessions in 2009 and 2010. Is Forever No Way was from the beginning a megalomaniac project, a fantasy of a record so extensive, so deep and discomposing that the world had never heard anything like it. The more time the band spent in the studio, the more self-exhausting their ambitions became. Every bass note, every last beating of the cymbals have been subjected to infinite interpretation and association processes. Every chord shift has been analysed with astrological and scientifical intent.

    Hellbilly Deluxe

    Picture Disc


    Just as White Zombie was on the verge of becoming the most popular metal band in the land, Rob Zombie decided he was an auteur. Stopping short of breaking up the band, Zombie set out to make sure everyone know that he was the main force in the band, as if there were any doubt in the first place. He did extracurricular animation, managed a band, started a record label, drew a sequence in Beavis & Butt-Head Do America, appeared in films, wrote the script for The Crow 3 (which he planned to direct), and most tellingly of all, he recorded a solo album, Hellbilly Deluxe. Since White Zombie was always his baby, it seems a little strange that he had the need to break away from the group, especially since the album sounds exactly like a White Zombie record, complete with thunderous industrial rhythms, drilling metal guitars, and B-movie obsessions. For most listeners, it doesn't matter if Hellbilly Deluxe is technically a White Zombie or Rob Zombie album, since it delivers the goods, arguably even better than Astro-Creep: 2000. To outsiders, the entire schlock enterprise may seem ridiculous or sound monotonous, but even the weak cuts here hit hard and give fans exactly what they want.
