    Strange Days

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


    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.

    Strange Grey Days

    Vancouver, Ca., sextet Chains of Love release their debut: a group of nine, garage-bred slabs of pure Phil Spector-meets-early-'80s-post-punk. Recorded on a fourtrack in their hometown, Chain of Love have already found fans in Dum Dum girls, Sharon Jones and her dapper Dap Kings.

    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.

    Strange Weather

    Numbered, Limited Edition Vinyl Pressed by The Pallas Group, Germany


    Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Masters


    Strange Weather was Marianne Faithfull's first complete studio album following her recovery from a 17-year drug addiction. In her earlier recording career, many people were won over by her soft, feathery voice. Unfortunately, Faithfull's public image became tainted during her relationship with Mick Jagger in the late 1960s and drugs took over her life until the mid-1980s. The 1987 release contains a mix of rock, blues and cabaret and includes her re-recorded hit, As Tears Go By which proved to be even more poignant the second time around.

    Strange Peace

    Since releasing their self-titled debut record in 2012, which The New
    Yorker called, "One of the year's best albums a punishing, noisy,
    exhilarating thing," the Toronto-based 3-piece METZ have garnered
    international acclaim as one of the most electrifying and forceful live acts,
    touring widely and extensively, playing hundreds of shows each year around
    the world.


    Now, Alex Edkins (guitar, vocals), along with Hayden Menzies (drums), and
    Chris Slorach (bass) are set to unleash their highly-anticipated third
    full-length album, Strange Peace, an emphatic but artful hammer swing to
    the status quo.


    The best punk isn't an assault as much as it's a challenge - to what's
    normal, to what's comfortable, or simply to what's expected. Teetering on
    the edge of perpetual implosion," NPR wrote in their glowing review of
    METZ's 2015 second album, II.


    Strange Peace was recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve
    Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming
    territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while
    capturing the notorious intensity of their live show. The trio continued to
    assemble the album (including home recordings, additional
    instrumentation) in their hometown, adding the finishing touches with
    longtime collaborator, engineer and mixer, Graham Walsh.


    Strange Peace isn't merely a collection of eleven uninhibited and urgent
    songs. It's also a kind of sonic venting, a truculent social commentary that
    bludgeons and provokes, excites and unsettles. With all the pleasurable
    tension and anxiety of a fever dream, Strange Peace is equal parts
    challenging and accessible. It is this implausible balancing act, moving
    from one end of the musical spectrum to the other, that only a band of
    METZ's power and capacity can maintain: discordant and melodic,
    powerful and controlled, meticulous and instinctive, subtle and complex,
    precise and reckless, wholehearted and merciless, brutal and optimistic,
    terrifying and fun.


    "Their whiplash of distortion is made with precision, a contained chaos.
    But you would never talk about them like that. Because METZ are not
    something you study or analyze," wrote Liisa Ladouceur in Exclaim! "They
    are something you feel: a transfer of energy, pure and simple." In other
    words: to feel something, fiercely and intensely, but together, not alone.

    Strange Little Birds


    Etched D Side


    Garbage have announced their sixth studio album and self-produced follow-up to 2012's Not Your Kind of People, Strange Little Birds.


    In a press release, frontwoman Shirley Manson described the album's overlying principle as keeping it fresh, and relying on instinct both lyrically and musically. She also compared it to their 1995 self-titled debut, which the group reissued and took on tour for its twentieth anniversary last year. To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than any of the previous records, she explained. It's getting back to that beginner's headspace.--Pitchfork

    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.


    The Doors mined new territory with their 1969 release, The Soft Parade incorporating brass, strings and even a full orchestra into the mix, albeit with the same results as it became their fourth Top 10 album in a row. The album climbed all the way to #6 on the strength of the huge hit Touch Me. Here on 200g 45RPM 2LP.

    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.

    Once More Round The Sun

    Art is a cyclical beast. The same can easily be said of Grammy Award nominated hard rock juggernaut Mastodon. 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.
