    Toys In The Attic

    Ranked 228/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Remastered From The Original Source Tapes!


    Contains the classics Sweet Emotion, Walk This Way, & Toys In The Attic


    After nearly getting off the ground with Get Your Wings, Aerosmith finally perfected their mix of Stonesy raunch and Zeppelin-esque riffing with their third album, Toys in the Attic. The success of the album derives from a combination of an increased sense of songwriting skills and purpose. Not only does Joe Perry turn out indelible riffs like Walk This Way, Toys in the Attic, and Sweet Emotion, but Steven Tyler has fully embraced sleaziness as his artistic muse. Taking his cue from the old dirty blues Big Ten Inch Record, Tyler writes with a gleeful impishness about sex throughout Toys in the Attic, whether it's the teenage heavy petting of Walk This Way, the promiscuous Sweet Emotion, or the double-entendres of Uncle Salty and Adam's Apple. The rest of Aerosmith, led by Perry's dirty, exaggerated riffing, provide an appropriately greasy backing. Before Toys in the Attic, no other hard rock band sounded like this. Sure, Aerosmith cribbed heavily from the records of the Rolling Stones, New York Dolls, and Led Zeppelin, but they didn't have any of the menace of their influences, nor any of their mystique. Aerosmith was a gritty, street-wise hard rock band who played their blues as blooze and were in it for a good time; Toys in the Attic crystallizes that attitude.

    Sweet Heart Sweet Light

    For an artist as consistent as Spiritualized's Jason Spaceman, whose 7th studio album Sweet Heart Sweet Light will see its release on Fat Possum, it's easy to assume that there's a certain effortlessness to the creative process. In fact, the three years since the release of 2008's acclaimed Songs in A&E were some of the roughest imaginable for Jason.


    After a near death from double pneumonia in 2005 it was a slow road to recovery, a process he touched upon on with great grace on the last album. His return to full health saw him release Songs in A&E and mount critically lauded performances of his 1997 game-changer Ladies And Gentlemen....We Are Floating In Space on both sides of the Atlantic.


    However, shortly after recording Sweet Heart Sweet Light in far flung locales such as Los Angeles, Reykavik and Wales, Jason found himself weakened by a degenerative liver disease and was subjected to six months of chemo treatment, a procedure that left him virtually housebound while he mixed the album.


    In a classic case of triumph over tribulation, the resulting album is Spiritualized at their most vibrant; full voiced and utterly sublime. In Jason Spaceman's orbit rock and roll is the salve and listeners will hear all of the epic grandiosity and brain worming melodies for which they're renowned, as well as the gorgeous gospel delium that makes hearing a new Spiritualized album an exhilarating and emotional experience.


    "Hey Jane," an energetic 8+ minutes of rousing organ, glittering guitar fuzz and swirling choirs, is first the single and indication that new album Sweet Heart Sweet Light is another epic body of work from the anthemic master. It's been three years in the making for renowned perfectionist Jason Spaceman and the resulting music captured in this first single, showcases them at their most vibrant and sublime.


    The album also features a first for Spiritualized: Jason is joined by his 11 year old daughter Poppy Spaceman on the starkly beautiful So Long You Pretty Thing for which she also has a writing credit for the opening couplet. Elsewhere on the album is I Am What I Am which was co-written by Jason and Mac Rebennack aka Dr. John.

    Limited Edition



    Brooklyn's Titan specialize in crafting epic rock jams; smokey, sprawling stretches of sweet riffs, swirling synths, and all the right kinds of rock bombast. They have an instinctual grasp on tension and release, with each song building to several emotional crescendos before ebbing, only to repeat in the most compelling of ways. Sweet Dreams, and especially the track Wooded Altar Beyond The Wander, prove that Titan is one of America's finest rock exports.

    Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress

    "If Godspeed around the turn of the millennium felt like a band of the moment, now, in a time of rapid cultural turnover and bite-sized music consumption, they feel out of step in a very necessary way." - PITCHFORK


    "This Montreal collective still sound like nothing else The Godspeed ethos of wordlessly eliciting universal truths remains as devastatingly effective as ever." - THE GUARDIAN


    Godspeed You! Black Emperor (GYBE) returns with its first single LP-length release
    since the group's earliest days in 1997-99. 'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress'
    clocks in at a succinct 40 minutes and is arguably the most focused and bestsounding
    recording of the band's career. Working with sound engineer Greg
    Norman (Electrical Audio) at studios in North Carolina and MontrÉal, GYBE slowly
    and steadily put the new album together through late 2013 and 2014, emerging with
    a mighty slab of superlative sonics, shot through with all the band's inimitable
    signposts and touchstones: huge unison riffage, savage noise/drone, oscillating
    overtones, guitar vs. string counterpoint, inexorable crescendos and scorchedearth
    transitions.


    Following Godspeed's return from a long hiatus at the end of 2010 to begin playing
    live shows again, and with the hugely acclaimed 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!
    release in 2012 marking their first new release in a decade, the group continued to
    perform regularly on their own headlining tours (and as headliners at many leading
    festivals), often including a new multi-movement piece in concert over the past
    couple of years. Known to fans and through live show recordings by the sobriquet
    "Behemoth", GYBE has gradually distilled this new work down to a fastidious and
    uncompromising essence in the studio, with the swing-time swagger of the opening
    unison riff in "Peasantry or 'Light! Inside of Light!'" giving way to increasing
    microtonal divergences and an exhilarating immersion in the harmonic power of
    massed amplified instruments, before collapsing into some of the most visceral and
    unalloyed noise/drone the band has yet committed to tape on "Lambs' Breath" and
    "Asunder, Sweet". The album closes with "Piss Crowns Are Trebled", a 14-minute
    piece of vintage Godspeed, where ascending and descending guitar and violin
    melodies intertwine over gut-rattling distorted bass in 3/4 time, segueing into a
    pummeling four-on-the-floor series of sparkling, soaring crescendos.


    'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress' finds Godspeed in top form; a sterling
    celebration of the band's awesome dialectic, where composition, emotion and
    'note-choice' is inextricable from an exacting focus on tone, timbre, resonance and
    the sheer materiality of sound. The album is available on 180 gram vinyl in a
    gatefold jacket with printed inner dust sleeve and insert poster. Thanks for listening.

    Little Earthquakes (Awaiting Repress)

    Emotionally and musically intense, Little Earthquakes shows that the piano is as much a rock & roll instrument as the guitar. Tori Amos's debut (if one disregards Y Kant Tori Read, as one would be well advised to do) is at once listenable and challenging; she takes on every topic, from sex to gender to religion, in an uncompromising manner.


    Her music appears gentle at first, but this appearance is deceiving, as one quickly learns upon listening to the wrenching Crucify or the almost violent Precious Things. By the time the album gets around to Me and a Gun, sung hauntingly by Amos without accompaniment from her piano, the juxtaposition of Amos' sweet voice and the emotional complexity of her lyrics is both familiar and shocking. Sandman fans should listen for a reference to author Neil Gaiman in Tear in Your Hand.

    Lights Out

    With the strum of an acoustic guitar set against the fuzzed out chords of an electric guitar and the tones of a boy / girl vocal, the London-based duo announced their arrival in the summer of last year. Since then Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe (aka Big Deal) have been making waves with their tales of teen angst and adult compromise.


    Lights Out, co-produced by Underwood and Dean Reid, emerges from its bedroom beginnings as a collection of 12 deeply personal songs with universal appeal, innately tapping into the innocence, insecurity, wonder and (sometimes unrequited) love and lust of relationships. These are songs which are structurally sparse yet emotively rich, sweet and seductive yet raw and jagged.

    Dopamine

    It's no surprise that Michigan's BORNS moved to L.A. before recording Dopamine-it's pure Southern California in a bottle. In the studio, Garrett Borns' sunkissed falsetto and intricately penned confessionals are given a glitzy bump. "Electric Love" explodes with a crunchy T. Rex-style riff before it takes a turn for sweet, breathy indie pop. On "The Emotion", BORNS channels Jeff Buckley and Bjôrk in equal measure over a shimmering wash of guitars. But what threads these lilting gems and electro-pop heaters together is that most narcotising of emotions-love is the drug he's thinking of.

    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.

    Tomorrow's Daughter (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: May 18, 2018*


    "When I was young, the artists that I really admired were the ones who always found a way to keep making music and expressing themselves," Matthew Sweet says on the occasion of the release of his 13th solo album Tomorrow's Daughter. "To me, those guys were the real artists, and I've tried to hold on to that attitude in my own work."


    The seasoned singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist is currently in the midst of a personal musical renaissance that's seen him produce some of the most compelling and ambitious music of his three-decade career.


    That description applies to Tomorrow's Daughter, on which such instantly memorable new tunes as "Belong," "Run Away," "Lady Frankenstein" and "Out of My Misery" demonstrate his uncanny ability to tap into a bottomless well of pop history to craft music that's effortlessly catchy yet deeply personal.


    Tomorrow's Daughter-the follow-up to the artist's acclaimed 2017 set Tomorrow Forever-is a persuasive testament to the enduring qualities of Sweet's adventurous, emotion-charged songcraft. The new album's 12 songs abound with the punchy melodic sensibility, playful sonic experimentalism and introspective lyrical insight that have been constants in his expansive catalog.


    Tomorrow's Daughter is the product of a burst of creative inspiration that followed Sweet's 2013 return to his native Nebraska, where he reestablished his Black Squirrel Submarine home studio. This period yielded 38 brilliant new songs, 17 of which appeared on Tomorrow Forever. It instantly became clear that this potent body of work merited a follow-up release, hence Tomorrow's Daughter.


    "It just sort of became my next record," Sweet says of Tomorrow's Daughter, which like its predecessor is released via his own Honeycomb Hideout imprint but this time distributed by MRI / Sony. Both albums feature Sweet's current touring band, comprised of guitarist Jason Victor (also a member of the recently-reformed Dream Syndicate) and his longtime rhythm section of bassist Paul Chastain and drummer Ric Menck (also known for their own acclaimed work with Velvet Crush).


    "When I put together Tomorrow's Daughter out of what I'd recorded, the 12 songs totally made sense to me in sequence," Sweet explains. "I enlisted some of the people around me, friends and family, to listen to everything I'd recorded and pick their favorites, and everyone pretty much agreed on what was the top stuff. I think it stands up as a separate record, and as a time capsule of the time that we made it."


    The distinctive musical and lyrical qualities that illuminate Tomorrow's Daughter have been hallmarks of Matthew Sweet's work since he began making music as a high school student in his native Lincoln, Nebraska. While attending the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, he became active in that town's burgeoning underground music scene, as a member of the now-legendary indie combos Oh-OK and Buzz of Delight, and in collaborations with R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe and Chris Stamey of The dB's.


    A demo recorded with producer Don Dixon led to solo deals with Columbia (which released Sweet's debut album Inside in 1986), A&M (1989's Earth) and finally Zoo, which issued his commercial and creative breakthrough Girlfriend in 1991. Girlfriend won raves from critics and established him with a wide international fan base that continues to support him today.


    Sweet continued to reveal new layers of songwriting depth and sonic creativity on his subsequent efforts Altered Beast, the spin-off EP Son of Altered Beast, 100% Fun, Blue Sky on Mars and In Reverse. His musical gifts continued to shine into the new century with Kimi Ga Suki, Living Things, Sunshine Lies, Modern Art and the Under the Covers series, a three-volume collaboration with Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles (Sweet also served as producer of the Bangles' 2011 album Sweetheart of the Sun).


    "I can barely even fathom it," Sweet says of his massive body of recorded work. "But here I am, so I try to live up to whatever it is I've established so far. To do the work is the really important thing to me, but knowing that I'm connecting with people makes me happy. I've continued touring pretty consistently, and it's nice to see that people still care enough to come out to the shows. There seems to be a real emotional attachment for them, which means a lot to me."


    Sweet is in the midst of an especially productive period that's seen him continue to generate new material at a prolific pace. He's already recorded


    Wicked System of Things, a collection of new original songs to be released as a limited-edition vinyl LP in November 2018 for Black Friday Record Store Day, and is planning his next general-release album.


    "I feel like I'm gonna be pretty active for awhile, and it's fun to be releasing a lot of music," he says. "I thought that there might be some resistance to putting out so much stuff, but that hasn't been the case, and that's encouraged me to keep going."


    Now firmly ensconced, along with his wife, cats and vintage recording gear, in Nebraska after a two-decade-plus stretch in Los Angeles, Sweet works out of his home studio, which allows him to indulge his bottomless musical imagination, and to engage in long-distance collaborations with musicians in other locations-a method that he employed on both Tomorrow Forever and Tomorrow's Daughter.


    "In some ways I think that moving has had a positive effect musically," he reflects. "I think it reconnected me a little bit to what it felt like when I was really young and music was new to me, and maybe that's reflected in the music. But it's hard to say, because making music is so internal for me that it's mostly in my head rather than my surroundings."


    Meanwhile, Sweet's catalog continues to be a source of inspiration for longtime fans and new converts. For instance, the Intervention label is planning deluxe two-LP vinyl editions of Girlfriend, Altered Beast, Son of Altered Beast and 100% Fun, which will feature a wealth of rare and unreleased material. But it's creating new music that remains Matthew Sweet's main concern, and he continues to do so with renewed intensity.


    "This feels like a really good time for me, and I feel lucky and grateful to still be doing what I love to do," Sweet asserts. "I feel like I'm in a totally positive place, and maybe moving has been a catalyst for that.


    "When I meet young people and they ask for advice about a career in music, I always say, 'Do music because it's what you love to do, and because you'd do it no matter what happens,'" he concludes. "I've tried to keep that attitude about it, because that's always worked for me. I just try to keep doing my thing and keep believing."

    Sefronia (180 Gram)

    180 Gram Black Vinyl

    Limited To 400 Copies

    Newly Remastered From The Original Master Tapes By Bill Inglot

    The list of '60s and '70s singer-songwriters is long and full of legends; but perhaps the most talented of that very talented bunch was Tim Buckley. Certainly when it came to singing Buckley was at the very top; his range was unmatched, capable of covering several octaves and acres of emotion in one breath, from sweet, tenor tenderness to hoarse, cracking anguish. And his songwriting showed a similar wide range; in the course of eight short years Buckley went from baroque, psychedelic folk rock to jazzy, even avant-garde ravings to blue-eyed soul.

    This extreme eclecticism, of course, worked against Buckley commercially; by the time his fans caught up to his latest stylistic change he was off on another. But it's also one of the reasons why his reputation has steadily grown in the years since his untimely death in 1975; countless listeners only familiar with his early Elektra albums have found themselves floored by his later output. Which is where we find ourselves with 1973's Sefronia, one of the most controversial albums of his career. Long-time fans decried this record as a sellout, and indeed its soft '70s funk feel is jarring to those used to his more adventurous work. But Buckley proves himself to be one helluva R&B singer on this album, which deserved a much larger audience than it got (by this time Buckley was on Frank Zappa and Herb Cohen's label DiscReet).

    Now, Real Gone Music is proud to present both Sefronia on vinyl for the first time since the late '80s, in a version newly remastered from the original master tapes by Bill Inglot. This release marks a significant upgrade in sound from what's heretofore been available, and to celebrate, we're offering a limited edition of 400 copies in audiophile 180-gram black vinyl. It's high time this album was reappraised; this vinyl release displays it at its very best!

    Go All the Way: The Absolute Finest Singles from the 1970s Power-Pop Mavens


    Vocalist Eric Carmen and Co. Deliver One Punchy Chord and Contagious Melody After Another


    Britpop, Psychedelia, Pop, and Arena Rock Blends Drive Hits Such as "Go All the Way" and "I Wanna Be With You"


    Mellifluously Airy Harmonies: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Red Colored Vinyl


    The matching Mod suits, trim haircuts, and youthful appearance weren't just for play. The Raspberries' looks extended to their irresistibly catchy and refreshingly concise music, a blend of bouncy Britpop, lazy-day psychedelia, mellifluous pop, and crunch arena rock that stands apart from the epic pomposity of most of the early 70s' commercial trends and continues to linger as some of the most expertly crafted sounds ever created. Over the course of four albums, the singles-minded group cut their share of memorable sides. They're all here on this 1976 compilation. And now, they possess a fidelity that even the original LPs lacked.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's internationally renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP extracts more information from the grooves, extending the spaces between instruments and breathing newfound life into the swirling vocal harmonies. The group's trademark singing is airier, the highs free of constraints, and the string-laden accents enriched with natural decay. Improved, too, are the quartet's amplifier-driven chords and frisky drumming, aspects that possess a palpable crunch typical of British Invasion acts.


    Adept at both gorgeous devotional ballads and upbeat, fist-pumping rockers, the Raspberries claim a multifaceted talent in leader Eric Carmen, a crooner whose capacity to turn on a dime from a sweet falsetto to searing cry infuses the band's tunes with emotional exuberance and bittersweet weight. He lends sentimental grace to epic piano weepers such as "Don't Want to Say Goodbye" and amiable snarl to carefree numbers like "I Wanna Be With You." However, the Raspberries' greatest asset relates to their harmonic prowess.


    Multi-part group vocals on bounding, surf-referencing fare ("Drivin' Around") and catchy, summery material ("Tonight") recall both the Beach Boys and Beatles. Yet the Raspberries bring a unique edge and R&B-etched rhythm to tunes that stand as proto power-pop staples. Thematically, the ensemble keeps lyrics as simple and memorable as its hooks, with a majority of songs speaking to the pleasures of romance and love. Breezy, fun, and indelible, it's music that never goes out of style.

    Time Well

    Inspired by the harsh, rural landscapes of Indiana which they call home, CLOAKROOM drifts through a range of emotions and styles on their sophomore full-length Time Well. Fuzzy and depressive. Expressive and expansive. An amalgam of doomy stoner rock, psychedelic shoegaze, and moody, pop-influenced, sonic abrasion, Time Well is 10 songs and 60+ minutes of crunchy, guitar-driven atmosphere and downbeat rhythms layered atop deceptively sweet and tranquil melodies. At times crushingly heavy, others gorgeously contemplative, CLOAKROOM write music with purpose and intent; to dissolve from this world into an infinite blur.

    Aretha's Gold


    Astonishing Collection of The Queen of Soul's Greatest Songs for Atlantic Records: Aretha's Gold Includes Nine Top Ten Hits: Respect, Chain of Fools, and Think Among Them


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes and Pressed at RTI: Breathtaking Sonics on Mobile Fidelity 180g 45RPM 2LP of Aretha's Gold Get to the Heart of Franklin's Range, Emotions, Expressiveness


    Aretha Franklin made her Hall of Fame reputation at Atlantic Records between 1967-1968. This astonishing two-year period witnessed the singer score nine Top 10 hits and define soul music, a era chronicled on Aretha's Gold. Pairing with producer Jerry Wexler and a flawless Muscle Shoals studio band, Franklin unleashed bolder sides of her artistry kept under wraps during her tenure at Columbia. The rest is history - a history that, until now, has never been in heard in true audiophile sound. And if there's any voice you want to experience to the most realistic extent, it's that of the vocalist Rolling Stone crowned the Greatest Singer of All Time.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP of Aretha's Gold presents Franklin's most seminal early Atlantic songs with reference-standard sonics. Finally, hear the full range of the Queen of Soul's depth, reach, and expressiveness. Complementing her timeless classics with tremendous dynamics, restored balances, and stunning clarity, this collectible analog set sheds new light on Franklin's power and technique, honesty and confidence, enunciation and directness.


    Hear why Franklin is even better than you likely think or remember. You just haven't been able to hear the Detroit native on a format that mirrors exactly what went down in the studios when she recorded songs that, to this day, remain the bar by which all other singers are measured. The same goes for Franklin's backing band, known as the Swampers, whose instrumental savvy, feel, and textures are so unique, the group is credited with creating its own style: The Muscle Shoals Sound. On this vinyl edition of Aretha's Gold, experience every picked guitar note, brushed snare, and fluid bass line. Seldom has a band and vocalist ever made a more formidable, memorable, and emotional combination.


    The evidence plays out across these 14 songs, each a soul landmark, each unforgettable thanks to Franklin's impassioned performances and empowering attitude. The Sweet Impressions (Franklin's backing vocalists) and sweeping string arrangements bolster the foundation, but the material belongs to Franklin. A veritable hit parade, the track listing on Aretha's Gold reads like a dictionary of soul.


    I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Loved You), Respect, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, Chain of Fools, Since You've Been Gone (Sweet Sweet Baby), Think, The House That Jack Built, I Say a Little Prayer, Baby I Love You: All Top 10 hits. Plus five more tunes, including a riveting cover of Sam Cooke's You Send Me, that charted.


    You know the songs by heart. You know the voice by memory. But you've never quite known them so intimately. Aretha's Gold on Mobile Fidelity gives the Queen the royal treatment she deserves.

    Beyond Words

    Pressed By Pallas In Germany


    First Ever Release On Vinyl


    Surely no one appreciates the sweet curse of the monster hit better than Bobby McFerrin, writes Christopher Loudon for JazzTimes. Mention McFerrin's name in casual conversation and you're sure to hear him dismissed as a one-hit wonder who was briefly hot in 1988 with his peppy paean to positive thinking, Don't Worry, Be Happy, on Simple Pleasures. Little do most folks realize that he ranks among the most dynamically diverse performers on the planet. As accomplished a composer, conductor and producer as he is a singer, McFerrin is an artist of incomparable flexibility who is equally at home with jazz, soul, classical or blues


    Actually, McFerrin's remarkable gift for expressing complex sounds, themes and emotions without words has been evident as far back as his eponymous debut in 1982. Not until now, though, has that gift been the sole focus of an entire solo album. In less capable hands, Beyond Words would likely be perceived as self-indulgent posturing or experimentation merely for the sake of avant-gardism. With McFerrin at the helm, the album emerges as an expertly navigated celebration of creative independence. It is, for the record, also the first of his albums on which he plays keyboards.

    Greatest Hits (Patsy Cline)

    200-gram, 45 RPM Vinyl Pressing by Quality Record Pressings!


    Now Presented in an Upgraded, Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket with Patsy's Timeless Classics Spread Across Four Sides!


    Cut at Sterling Sound directly from the original master tape. This was a straight transfer, bypassing the console altogether. There was no EQ of any kind. A true direct transfer, using a VMS 80, the most sophisticated lathe. You're hearing the master tape!


    In the late 1950s and the '60s, country music was essentially a singles medium. This album, first released in 1967, collects a dozen of Patsy Cline's biggest hits - all of them from the country singles market - including Walkin' After Midnight, Sweet Dreams (Of You), Crazy, and I Fall to Pieces. Producer Owen Bradley surrounds Cline's full-throated, emotionally charged vocals with lush, sophisticated arrangements that set the standard for Nashville's countrypolitan sound. Before Shania Twain found a new (though not necessarily improved) way to combine country and pop in the 1990s, this was the top-selling country album of all time by a female artist.

    Songs In A&E

    Who would have thought that Jason Pierce's Spiritualized would have had any life in them after the rather uninspiring Amazing Grace in 2003? In the intervening five years, Pierce nearly died from double pneumonia. Near death experiences by their very nature are life-changing events. The music on Songs in A&E were recorded in that aftermath, but most of the album was written two years before he got sick; with so much of it about near death and survival, it feels like life imitating art. From the first notes of Sweet Talk, it's obvious that a very different Spiritualized is up and about; an acoustic guitar, a sparse drum kit, the voice quartet, a few horns, and a minimal bassline fuel it. Pierce sweetly croons to a loved one in waltz time; his words are
    simultaneously appeasing and accusatory. The gospel chorus isn't as overblown as it was on Amazing Grace or Let It Come Down. They are in a support role, offering Pierce's reedy voice a fullness and authority it wouldn't have otherwise. The arrangement is lilting but powerful. How strange, then, the sounds of a ventilator that usher in the next track Death Take Your Fiddle: I think I'll drink myself into a coma/And I'll take every way out I can find/But morphine, codeine, Whisky, they won't alter/The way I feel/Now death is not around...Death take your fiddle/And play a song for me. Minor-key acoustic
    guitar and ghostly bass frame Pierce singing a mutant folk-blues that evokes Gary Davis' Death Don't Have No Mercy. The backing vocals float
    wordlessly like death angels, hovering around the vocalist and giving the tune an otherworldly quality.


    But this isn't a song about dying; it's a song about coming close and cheating it; it's eerie. The proof? The next two tracks: I Gotta Fire, and Soul on
    Fire. The former is a taut, Gimme Shelter-esque rocker, the latter, a lush, uptempo love song. Sitting on Fire is a beautifully orchestrated love song:
    it's an admission of weakness and codependency but celebrates both of them at the same time: Baby, I'm sitting on fire/but the flames put a hole in my
    heart/when we're together we stand so tall/But a part of me falls to the floor/Sets me free /I do believe it'll burn up in me for the rest of my life. Strings,
    vibes, marimbas, and drums crash in to the center of the mix carrying the protagonist into oblivion. Yeah, Yeah is a scorching rocker that feels like the
    Bad Seeds meeting the old Spacemen 3. You Lie You Cheat, crashes in Velvets style with acoustic guitar and screeching feedback. The chorus sings
    atop a flailing drum kit, distorted strings, and wailing electric guitar. The marimbas and strings that power Baby, I'm Just a Fool, sweetly underscore a
    very dark pop song, complete with da-do-da-do-dat det-det-do's. It descends into beautifully textured chaos led by a loopy violin solo over seven
    minutes. Songs in A&E is the most consistent recording Spiritualized has issued since 1997's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space. It
    contains the best elements of the band's signature sound, and paradoxically hedonistic yet utterly spiritual lyric themes. That said, newly focused energy,
    willfully restrained arrangements, and taut compositions give the set a sheer emotional power that no Spiritualized recording has ever displayed before,
    making it, quite possibly, their finest outing yet.

    Black Metal

    In its review of Dean Blunt's The Redeemer - which they later named their top album of 2013 - FACT called Blunt "the premier art prankster
    of our time," while acknowledging his earnestness; Tiny Mix Tapes,
    who would give the album the #2 spot in their best of the year rank- ings, praise the work for its liberating "short-circuiting of the bound- aries of taste and instilled critical response," while speaking to the
    album's near-paradoxical emotional depth.


    Blunt's newest odyssey, Black Metal, rides this tension between criti- cal detachment and mainlined human feeling, and in fact he climbs
    ever-steeper theoretical heights just as his emotionally stark songs
    become, at times, startlingly intimate.


    A true multi-media vanguard, Blunt employs original instrumentation
    along with elements of pastiche and his unique vocal performances
    to create songs and recordings that are not only beautiful, but also tie
    into his larger project that incorporates music, visual art, and the writ- ten word to play with identity, cultural signifiers, and artistic agency.


    But Black Metal is above all a brilliant, majestic collection of songs, encompassing everything from hypnotic long-form experiments to
    ballads almost disarming in their sweet simplicity, swirling equally
    with fascinating sounds and fascinating ideas. Blunt's influences are
    wide-ranging, from rock's underground pioneers (he quotes Sonic
    Youth in interviews; the album leads with a Big Star sample), to neo- classical composers, to early indie pop (another track samples The
    Pastels), to classic rock, hip-hop, and R&B. But rather than coldly
    compiling them, Blunt brings the works and genres he draws from
    into a new musical and cultural conversation.


    In the cover story to September's issue of The Wire, Blunt explains
    his relationship to his listeners: "Whatever is communicated through
    the purity of intention is out of my hands because I didn't know
    anything beyond that." With his newest, most accomplished, and
    most vexing album, Blunt invites us to draw our own conclusions in
    his expansive and fascinating world.

    New Multitudes

    New Multitudes is an intimate interpretation of American icon and musical legend Woody Guthries previously unrecorded lyrics from a dream team of Americana torchbearers: Jay Farrar (Son Volt), Will Johnson (Centro-matic), Anders Parker (Varnaline) and Jim James (My Morning Jacket). What makes this album such a rarity in todays music world is the allowance of the songs infectious simplicity to stand alone in all their glory. In doing so, Farrar, Johnson, Parker and James, pay the greatest compliment to Woody Guthrie and the collaborative spirit he so greatly embodied. This is an album which seamlessly converges the sepia-toned essence of the time honored past with the risks needed to forge the future.


    Under the invitation of Nora Guthrie, Woody's daughter, to tour the Guthrie archives, each of the four songwriters were offered the chance to plumb and mine the plethora of notebooks, scratch pads, napkins, etc. for anything that might inspire them to lend their voices and give the words new life.


    These guys worked on an amazing group of lyrics says Nora. Much of it was culled from Woody's times in L.A. Lyric wise, it's a part of the story that is still mostly unknown. From Woody's experiences on L.A.'s skid row to his later years in Topanga Canyon, they are uniquely intimate, and relate two distinctly emotional periods in his life.


    Musically, it is the sense of collaboration that makes New Multitudes not just another trite and traditional acoustic regurgitation of back porch blues. From the ragged jangle of its opening track, Hoping Machine, the loping lilt of Fly High, the floorboard stomp of No Fear, to the lush warmth and sudden sonic gut punch of My Revolutionary Mind, the cohorts deliver a lesson in discovering a song's sweet spot time and time again. It's the function and preparedness of each artist's dogged work ethic gleaned the old-fashion way; veracious songs, road weary odometers and sweat stained live shows, all attributes of the man they are honoring.

    II: Void Worship

    Wizards and warriors, rejoice, for the chosen one has returned! The Misery Wizard lives!


    Since the early 2012 unveiling of their debut sonic behemoth MISERY WIZARD, fans and critics alike have patiently yet anxiously awaited the second chapter in the ongoing legacy of the almighty PILGRIM, a three-piece doom metal band from Rhode Island, USA.


    Their first release shook the doom metal underground to its core, making a loud, in your face effort to bring doom metal back to its most minimalist and archaic roots, restoring it to its former glory. Their critical success, paired with their controversial interviews and emotionally draining live performances have lead PILGRIM to excellence, traversing the globe performing sold-out shows in multiple countries and playing festivals alongside some of the biggest names in their genre. Two years later, the fabled outfit has returned with a brand new record, the highly anticipated next installment of their aural adventure PILGRIM II: VOID WORSHIP.


    PILGRIM returns more powerful than ever, wielding eight new epic tracks laden with tales of sword and sorcery, death, doom and destruction. Recorded at Moonlight Mile Recording by audio mastermind Mike Moebius, II: VOID WORSHIP delivers an absolutely unrivaled quality of tone and heaviness that many critics felt their original effort MISERY WIZARD had lacked. The band takes a new approach to their song writing, replacing meditated, repetitive hypnosis-inducing dirges with more calculated and demented powerhouse riffs. They build, shape, and climb into frenzied climaxes and fade into sweet sonic releases, molding perfectly crafted rock songs into twisting spires of evil doom metal masterpieces. It is obvious that PILGRIM has matured, both musically and as individuals, in their past two years of global conquest.

    All-Analog Mastering By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Tapes


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    On 1989's In Step, Vaughan found his own songwriting voice, blending blues, soul, and rock in unique ways, and writing with startling emotional honesty. Yes, there are a few covers, all well chosen, but the heart of the album rests in the songs he cowrote with Doyle Bramhall, the man who penned the Soul to Soul highlight "Change It." Fueled by a desire to make up for lost time and delight in his reawakened commitment to life and sobriety, Vaughan turned in what many consider his greatest artistic statement, an album ensconced in sweat, soul, determination, and not an ounce of filler.


    "Travis Walk" offers a heady rush of flat-picking, "The House is Rockin'" is full-tilt roots-boogie, "Let Me Love You Baby" and "Leave My Girl Alone" are sweet blues epiphanies, and the nine-minute instrumental "Riviera Paradise" is a truly soulful mix of blues and jazz. By now, just a year before his untimely death, Vaughan had also tamed his bawling voice into a rich instrument. In short, this 1989 session is Vaughan at his artistic peak.


    In Step remains one of the five greatest blues records of the past quarter century. There's not a link in this chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy. We're passionate about the blues AND Stevie Ray and the passion shows up here in spades.
