    Enema Of The State (Translucent Red Vinyl)

    Gatefold Jacket With 11 x 11 Insert


    Everyone loves a party, so most people love a party band. That's why SoCal's Blink-182 have enjoyed a relatively long life in the ephemeral world of punk rock: They know how to make being pissed off sound as inviting as the pop of a beer-can tab. Bassist-vocalist Mark Hoppus, guitarist-vocalist Tom Delonge, and drummer Travis Barker have a swell time on their third album, singing about sexual frustration (Dumpweed), alienation (the power-pop-y All the Small Things) and the sucky, suicidal state of the world (the piano-laced Adam's Song). The minimalist rat-a-tat-tat rhythms never falter; the guitar boings up and down like a sonic Superball. It's all harmless but still gnarly enough to foment the kind of anti-everything rebellion that spawned rock & roll way back in the day. Sometimes feeling good doesn't demand more than a sense of collective ennui or a bouquet of clumsy words/A simple melody (Going Away to College). Blink-182 have the formula down, and for that, if nothing else, more power to 'em.

    The Swell Season

    The Swell Seasons self-titled debut record is finally available on LP for the first time. The band has went on to wider success through their work in the Academy Award winning film, Once and have since issued both a soundtrack and a second record on Anti Records. However, this was the quiet debut release that started it all, recorded shortly prior to the filming of the movie.



    At the time Glen Hansard of The Frames had recently teamed up with classically trained Czech vocalist and pianist, Marketa Irglova to write a handful of affecting songs and compositions for their friend and filmmaker, John Carney. Some of these songs would go onto make the film, Once while others didnt.The two choose to issue this record on CD and digitally shortly after thinking it unlikely that there would ever be an actual soundtrack or distribution of the film they had just completed. Of course this could not have been further from what ultimately happened.



    Listening back through The Swell Season in comparison to Frames records, the songs on Once or their recent record, Strict Joy one cant help but be struck by just how intimate the whole affair feels. Recorded in a small studio in the Czech Republic with a limited budget the two are joined only by two other string players giving the songs a sense of space and isolation. A feeling that works particularly well for this batch of songs and in particular a vinyl record.



    The record stands on its own as a complete piece on par with some of the more personal musical statements of the last few years. The Swell Season was released prior to the Once soundtrack. When it came time to put the soundtrack together the band rerecorded four of the songs for the soundtrack. The other six songs are specific to this release and not available elsewhere.

    Jane From Occupied Europe

    Noisy and experimental, Britain's Swell Maps experienced little commercial success during the course of their chaotic career, but in hindsight they stand as one of the pivotal acts of the new wave: not only was the group an acknowledged inspiration to the likes of Sonic Youth and Pavement, but their alumni - most notably brothers Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks - continued on as key players in the underground music community.

    Ulysses (Awaiting Repress)


    Includes Two Unreleased Tracks Not Available Anywhere Else


    Victoria, B.C.'s Current Swell is set to release their new album, Ulysses, on May 6, 2014. The 12-tracks
    on Ulysses perfectly deliver the band's textured, deep-groove sound while capturing the energy of their live
    show, which has earned them scores of fans across The Americas, Australia and Europe. The band will
    debut many of these new songs next month in Austin during SXSW.


    Ulysses was produced by Nathan Sabatino (Dr. Dog, Neko Case, Giant Sand) at Vancouver's iconic
    Greenhouse Studios. The album captures every bit of warmth the studio's massive Neve console could
    provide, as heard on "Rollin'" (a showcase for Stanton's exemplary slide work), the title track "Ulysses,"
    rocker "Keys to the Kingdom" and the readymade sing-along "One Day I'll Be Rich."
    While Current Swell spent the better part of six months recording their previous album (and Nettwerk
    debut), 2012's Long Time Ago, the four band members entered the studio with a clear goal and knocked
    Ulysses out in 20 days.


    From appearances at key festivals from Australia to Canada (Byron Bay Bluesfest, Peats Ridge, Rock
    The Shores, Ottawa Bluesfest and more), to sold-out headline tours of Brazil, to support slots with such
    established artists as Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K'Naan, The
    Tragically Hip and even The Beach Boys, Current Swell's infectious sound and raucous live shows have
    earned the quartet scores of devoted fans around the word. In 2011, Current Swell earned first place at
    Vancouver's Peak Performance Project and headlined a Canada Day concert to a crowd of 45,000.

    Strict Joy

    The Swell Season are Glen Hansard (from the Irish band the Frames) and Marketa Irglova (classically trained Czech pianist and vocalist). In 2007, Once, a film about two people meeting and falling in love on the streets of Dublin, became an indie phenomenon, as audiences everywhere responded to the unassuming charm of the two leads, Glen and Marketa, and the beautiful music they made together. On the way to going gold, the Once soundtrack brought the Swell Season onto the stage of the Academy Awards, where the band won the Best Original Song award, and into the hearts of the audience and host Jon Stewart. Since then they have toured to sold-out venues as the Swell Season, Once has become a perennial top DVD rental and seller, and now the film is in development for a Broadway musical to open early in 2010.


    Now comes the much anticipated follow-up, Strict Joy, and from the first notes of first track Low Rising, the musical magic audiences found in Once is back. The band returns to map the rocky peaks and valleys of relationships in songs like the haunting I Have Loved You Wrong, a Marketa feature, and the driving, anthemic The Rain. A feature documentary will make the festival rounds this fall, covering the making of Once and Glen and Marketa's musical coming together, but in the meantime, the beautiful songs of Strict Joy will tell their story.

    A Trip To Marineville

    Brothers Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks started the Swell Maps in the early 1970s while in their teens. The band's chaotic mix of arty experimentalism, garage primitivism, and punk rock gumption established a template for the British DIY post-punk movement of the late '70s and early '80s. The band's 1979 debut, A TRIP TO MARINEVILLE, perfectly captures the band's two disparate yet strangely compatible elements. Songs such as Spitfire Parade, Another Song, and the rousing opener H.S. Art burn with youthful abandon and a glammy, knowingly primitive cool. Yet by Don't Throw Ashtrays at Me and Bridge Head, the listener is presented with an almost completely different band, as improvised noise, clattering percussion, found sounds, and ambient piano soundscapes overtake the more straightforward rock elements that introduced the album. The hypnotic pulse of Krautrock creeps in on Full Moon in My Pocket and BLAM!! and the Sonic Youth blueprint is presented fully formed on Gunboat. For the Swell Maps, the call to arms of punk rock wasn't about empty gestures toward anarchy and social rebellion, but rather the notion of a personal revolution via the limitless possibilities of art. A Trip To Marineville perfectly captures this realization.

    Vespertine (Awaiting Repress)

    Vespertine is a lush, gorgeous swell of midpace electronica, symphonic strings and Björk's uniquely alien, spectral vocals. It's Not up to You is as lovely as anything she's ever done and Cocoon, Pagan Poetry and Aurora are adrift in an enchanted reverie.

    Women's self-titled debut touches upon Velvet Underground, Swell Maps and This Heat while not really having any obvious precursors. A lo-fi masterpiece cloaked in layers of vibrato and guitar wash. Women effortlessly mix noise, static and infectious hooks that manage to lean towards progressive psychedelia without pretense. The band is made up of Patrick Flegel, Matthew Flegel, Michael Wallace and Christopher Reimer and they reside in Calgary, Canada.

    The highly anticipated debut from London's Savages, an all-female four-piece who play music with scything energy and brutal power. Recorded with Rodaidh McDonald (The xx), the album is an 11-track, 38-minute masterpiece. Limned in black and white but containing a swell of different emotions within its self-imposed strictures, the songs cover topics from masochism (Hit Me), urban dread (City's Full), materialism, possessivenes and the experience of being a woman (Husbands, I Am Here).

    Dark Skies OST

    The film "Dark Skies" is a world where the threat is not supernatural but alien in context. This powerful new score by Joseph Bishara, composer of "Insidious" and "The Conjuring" (in theaters this summer) sonically blends horror sensibilities with tense science fiction overtones as waves of static rise and swell to silent stops, unrecognizable sound manipulations soar while strings, winds, and crystal bowls hold open a reality that suggests the terrifying is also staggeringly fascinating.

    The Magic Place is the third record from Julianna Barwick, and the first to be released by Asthmatic Kitty.This nine piece, 43 minute album is a cinematic journey through glacial pacing and drifting drones. The occasional icy down-plink of piano, Julianna's gorgeous churchhouse sigh of a voice, a swell of a dozen voices rising in harmony - this is music from the inside of the fortress of solitude, the work of a solitary creator, a message from a crystal palace of reverb and avant-choral bliss.

    Between Two Shores

    Between Two Shores is the third solo
    release from acclaimed singer-song
    writer Glen Hansard.


    Glen Hansard has built a career, now
    over 2 decades strong, on struggle.
    His impassioned songs mostly veer
    between the exhausting struggle to
    make it professionally and the numbing
    struggle to keep the affections
    of a romantic partner. Pick up any
    Frames or Swell Season record, or his
    first two solo releases, 2012's Rhythm
    and Repose, and 2015's Didn't He
    Ramble to find him chipping away at

    Texas

    In a year when overproduced rock-fluff flooded radio
    waves, Texas-Sudden's 1986 solo debut for Creation-
    blasted through the saccharin for a damaged and masterful
    invocation at the imperfect alters of Chilton and Bolan,
    sonic influences the Brit bore proudly on his velvet sleeve
    throughout the course of his polarizing prolificacy. As the
    increasingly splintered Rolling Stones cultivated "Harlem
    Shuffle" cover cheese, the former Jacobite leader looked
    to the ragged Exile On Main St. and Sticky Fingers roots
    of his icons for a raw, 12-song predication melding tender
    jangle and staggering swagger. Widely considered Sudden's
    solo magnum opus, Texas is an exquisite mÉlange of the
    off-kilter sub-terrestrial songwriter.


    In founding Swell Maps, the post-punk prefacing
    Birmingham art-snots, Nikki Sudden and his drumming
    brother Epic Soundtracks charted new territory for racket
    and corrosive guitar. But after folding Swell Maps at the
    dawn of the '80s, Nikki Sudden plowed through another
    decade's worth of terrifically fertile ground. Drawing on
    his devotion to the Rolling Stones and T. Rex-alongside
    guitarist Dave Kusworth as Jacobites, plus a cheekily named
    cohort of British sidemen-Nikki Sudden cut a string of
    raw, inspired rock 'n' roll records, etched with double-edged travel melancholia and hard-bitten punk dejection.

    Dead Men Tell No Tales

    Dead Men Tell No Tales takes a stripped-down turn with plaintive lyrical confessions as pretty as they are prescient, summoning Syd Barrett?s wild spirit through a seance of simple reverb burbles and acoustic incantations. Front-and-center vocals recounting love, loss and death's lurking presence are presented against airy guitar shimmer in a demented yin and yang seemingly forecasting the scarf-swathed, underground dandy man's abrupt fall nearly 20 years later. In the midst of such weighty tomes are less downtrodden peeks into the studio, where Sudden and his Jacobites are caught on tape in a few joyful fits and starts, adding another complex layer to this celebrated post-punk. In founding Swell Maps, the post-punk prefacing Birmingham art-snots, Nikki Sudden and his drumming brother Epic Soundtracks charted new territory for racket and corrosive guitar.

    How We Lost

    How We Lost is actually a celebratory album. It's a reflective record and, in its own way, celebrates the Windsor For The Derby continuum that's been culled from their first release, Calm Hades Float in 1996 to their last, Giving Up the Ghost from 2005. Each of these recordings is a sequel to the next both musically and in narrative, especially since the band found themselves in constant dialogue about their body of work and the paths they'
    d chosen due to the rerelease of their first two records Calm Hades Float and Minnie Greutzfeldt. Also a part of that ongoing dialogue were the records that the band found itself consistently re-visiting, Swell Maps, Section 25, Psychic TV and what it was that made those recordings timeless and resonate in a personal way to the band. The songs on How We Lost is about the ways they've changed over the years, the things they hold onto and what's been left behind.

    In many ways, Please brought Euro-techno into the unsuspecting homes of millions like no other album before. This time, the boys--in this case the Pet Shop Boys--were doin' it for themselves. I Want a Lover and Tonight Is Forever are songs by boys for boys about boys that snuck past so many because of the genderless (for the most part) objects of affection in the lyrics. Please announces with every synthesizer swell layered over electronic beats, that the boys came to dance and they could complain about their love lives while they were at it. There is also a snide swat or two at the socioeconomic state of things (Opportunities), but the Pet Shop Boys' debut will always be most remembered for Neil Tennant's Al Stewart-like vocals in West End Girls. -Steve Gdula

    American Slang/So Low

    Depending on whom you ask, Jack 'Oblivian' Yarber is either a rock legend or an obsolute unknown. And no one knows this dichotomy better than Yarber, who may be Memphis' most infuential active rock musician.


    The list of noteworthy bands Yarber has been a member of over the years is massive and includes Johnny Vomit & the Dry Heaves, new-wavers the End, '68 Comeback, Knaughty Knights, and Tav Falco's Panther Burns. Two of Yarber's former bands, the Compulsive Gamblers and the Oblivians, have seen their reputation and following swell in the decade since their demise, especially the Oblivians, whose international fan base borders on rabid. Due largely to his stint in these bands, both partnerships with Greg Cartwrigth, now of Reigning Sound, Yarber has been an acknowledged influence on artists such as the White Stripes, the Hives, and Jay Reatard.


    In the years since, Yarber has toured and released a string of successful solo albums under the Jack O & the Tennessee Tearjerkers moniker. Originally conceived in 2000 as a partnership with former Impala and current Bo-Keys bassist Scott Bomar, the band quickly morphed into Yarber's solo incarnation after Bomar became occupied with film scoring and production work. The band has had a revolving door for side players ever since, at different times including current River City Tanlines John Bonds and Terrence Bishop, Neighborhood Texture Jam guitarist John Wittmore, the Reigning Sound's Greg Roberson, Bluff City Backslider Adam Woodard, and a host of other recognizable local musicians.

    Headache

    Remastered By Steve Albini And Bob Weston At Chicago Mastering


    "We liked to think we were ahead of our time. Now that time has caught up with us-well, this isn't such a swell place, and having gotten here first doesn't make it any nicer." - Steve Albini


    Headache is a 1987 EP by Chicago post-hardcore band Big Black. The record generated some controversy due to a cover photograph of a shotgun suicide victim whose head was split in half; it only appeared on a very limited edition of the record and was later replaced with a drawing by Savage Pencil.


    Original pressings bore a sticker reading Warning! Not as good as Atomizer, so don't get your hopes up, cheese!, not as a gimmick, but honestly to any fans as the band thought that Headache was not as strong as the band's previous release. This also came at a time when major labels were first starting to warn parents that albums contained explicit lyrics, and while all of Big Black's records contained such lyrics, Headache's sticker was an ironic dig at mainstream music.

    Libraries

    Among the moments captured on Libraries are Spectoresque walls of reckless sound, cavernous drums, middle-school percussion, and moody swells of stringed instruments, all decorated hastily with stray leads, which bleed beautifully all over everything. Super-solid chug-along pop songs performed with an almost startling precision on all members' parts. ~ TIME OUT NEW YORK on The Love Language 2009 CMJ performance

    Blue Lights On The Runway

    After critical raves, three national tours and multiple late-night TV bookings surrounding their breakout album Flock, Irish band Bell X1 is back with the ambitious and cutting Blue Lights on the Runway. Their second album on Yep Roc Records, BLOTR belies a synth-based metamorphosis for the group Paste Magazine called, one of Ireland's greatest bands. The central creative trio of Paul Noonan, Dave Geraghty and Dominic Phillips retained the melody-focused approach of their first album but expanded their sound through the addition of glitchy electronic nuances ('The Ribs of a Broken Umbrella') crunching, prominent guitars ('Breastfed') and glittery art pop ('The Great Defector'). Noonan's gorgeous ballad 'Light Catches Your Face' anchors the work, exemplifying the emotional gamut fans have come to expect from the versatile rockers. Touring, licensing and the excitement of their now legendarily rabid fans are sure to combine for an even greater swell of success for Bell X1 in 2009. Quite literally, Blue Lights on the Runway will mark the take-off of a long, rich career.

    Double Star

    Limited Edition



    Just ten years ago, Rick Rizzo and Tara Key put the finishing touches on their Thrill Jockey debut, Dark Edson Tiger, did a few live shows including All Tomorrow's Parties at Camber Sands, and jubilantly declared the whole affair a rousing success, vowing to ride the tsunami swell of momentum into their next project.



    And now, in a Van Winkle like-daze, they are back, a new batch of instrumental collaborations ready to test the brave new decade. It would be easy to say that they simply wanted to wait out the debacle of poor government and unmitigated corporate greed, but truth be told, the seeds for Double Star were sown in early live New York City sessions with bassist Tim Harris not long after the Dark Edson dust had settled. These let-the-tape-roll sessions produced some of the guitar psychedelia that long-time observers might have expected from these two, including the epic tracks that now comprise Noisy Attic as well as the genesis of Interruptive Organ.



    The DNA for this album of course lies in their respective Kentucky punk rock roots, but a lot of living has been done between then and now. Double Star is a barrel-aged kind of record, sometimes inviting small fragrant sips, but sometimes asking you to knock one back and burn the throat a little. Worth waiting a decade for.
