    One can hardly imagine Prince, Erykah Badu, or Outkast without the influence of Betty Davis. Her style of raw and revelatory punk-funk defies any notions that women can't be visionaries in the worlds of rock and pop. In recent years, rappers from Ice Cube to Talib Kweli have rhymed over her intensely strong but sensual music. Betty penned the song ''Uptown'' for The Chambers Brothers and wrote the tunes that got The Commodores signed to Motown. The Detroit label soon came calling, pitching a Motown songwriting deal, which Betty turned down. Motown wanted to own everything. Heading to the UK, Marc Bolan of T. Rex urged the creative dynamo to start writing for herself. A common thread throughout Betty's career would be her unbending DIY ethic, which made her quickly turn down anyone who didn't fit with the vision. She would eventually say no to Eric Clapton as her album producer, seeing him as too banal. In 1968, she married Miles Davis and quickly influenced him on the magic of psychedelic rock along with introducing him to Jimi Hendrix-personally inspiring the classic album, Bitches Brew.


    Miles and Betty fans have long debated the truth of a near mythological session recorded in Studios B and E at Columbia's 52nd Street Studios on May 14th and 20th, 1969. The landmark session was produced by Miles and Teo Macero and featured Betty on vocals, accompanied by Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, guitarist John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock on keys, and Dylan/Miles session bassist Harvey Brooks. Other players included bassist Billy Cox (Band of Gypsys), saxophonist Wayne Shorter, and organist Larry Young. Now, Light In The Attic, with full support from Betty herself, presents these recordings to the public for the very first time. These historic sessions-never heard, never bootlegged-predate Miles' revolutionary album, Bitches Brew, and are the true birth of Miles' jazz-rock explorations, along with the roots for Betty's groundbreaking funk that came years later, starting with her self-titled debut in 1973. While, ultimately, these recordings would go unreleased for nearly half a century, they would greatly shape each of their careers.


    The vibe is intrinsically unique, fresh, and futuristic-jazz heavyweights playing psychedelia, rock, and jazz-fusion long before the term became commonplace. The songs include Betty originals and covers of classics by Creedence and Cream. The concepts explored on these previously unheard sessions fueled concepts that wouldn't be fully realized until years later with Miles' seminal On The Corner.


    Additionally, included here is the first time rerelease of a 1968 Columbia single, recorded in October 1968 at Columbia Studios in Los Angeles. The session was produced by Jerry Fuller and featured South African maverick Hugh Masekela on trumpet and arrangements, plus members of jazz-funk pioneers The Crusaders-including trombonist Wayne Henderson and pianist Joe Sample. Two of the three tracks included here from this session are previously unreleased.


    This deluxe package is a treasure trove for both Betty and Miles fans, including rare documents from the pen of co-producer Teo Macero, rarely seen photos from legendary photographer Baron Wolman, and new interviews with Mrs. Davis herself, Harvey Brooks, and Hugh Masekela-the entire project overseen with Betty's full blessing.

    Mask

    From 1978-1982 Bauhaus surged mercurial through the post-punk music scene, tearing into tense, bass-driven new-wave, T-Rex-esque dark-glam and swirling, clattering, orchestral atmospherics, whilst churning it into a grand, velvet, Rimbaudian hallucination. Managing to expand their sound on Mask, the members of Bauhaus stretched themselves into new areas of music and performance, resulting in an album that was arguably even better than the band's nearly flawless debut.

    Betty Davis

    One can hardly imagine the genre-busting, culture-crossing musical magic of Outkast, Prince, Erykah Badu, Rick James, The Roots, or even the early Red Hot Chili Peppers without the influence of R&B pioneer Betty Davis. Her style of raw and revelatory punk-funk defies any notions that women can't be visionaries in the worlds of rock and pop. In recent years, rappers from Ice Cube to Talib Kweli to Ludacris have rhymed over her intensely strong but sensual music.


    There is one testimonial about Betty Davis that is universal: she was a woman ahead of her time. In our contemporary moment, this may not be as self-evident as it was thirty years ago - we live in an age that's been profoundly changed by flamboyant flaunting of female sexuality: from Parlet to Madonna, Lil Kim to Kelis. Yet, back in 1973 when Betty Davis first showed up in her silver go-go boots, dazzling smile and towering Afro, who could you possibly have compared her to? Marva Whitney had the voice but not the independence. Labelle wouldn't get sexy with their "Lady Marmalade" for another year while Millie Jackson wasn't "Feelin' Bitchy" until 1977. Even Tina Turner, the most obvious predecessor to Betty's fierce style wasn't completely out of Ike's shadow until later in the decade.


    Ms. Davis's unique story, still sadly mostly unknown, is unlike any other in popular music. Betty wrote the song "Uptown" for the Chambers Brothers before marrying Miles Davis in the late '60s, influencing him with psychedelic rock, and introducing him to Jimi Hendrix - personally inspiring the classic album 'Bitches Brew.'


    But her songwriting ability was way ahead of its time as well. Betty not only wrote every song she ever recorded and produced every album after her first, but the young woman penned the tunes that got The Commodores signed to Motown. The Detroit label soon came calling, pitching a Motown songwriting deal, which Betty turned down. Motown wanted to own everything. Heading to the UK, Marc Bolan of T. Rex urged the creative dynamo to start writing for herself. A common thread throughout Betty's career would be her unbending Do-It-Yourself ethic, which made her quickly turn down anyone who didn't fit with the vision. She would eventually say no to Eric Clapton as her album producer, seeing him as too banal.


    In 1973, Davis would finally kick off her cosmic career with an amazingly progressive hard funk and sweet soul self-titled debut. Davis showcased her fiercely unique talent and features such gems as "If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up" and "Game Is My Middle Name." The album Betty Davis was recorded with Sly & The Family Stone's rhythm section, sharply produced by Sly Stone drummer Greg Errico, and featured backing vocals from Sylvester and the Pointer Sisters.

    The Masterplan

    Following a British rock tradition initiated by the Beatles and lovingly inherited by the Jam and the Clash, Oasis is the only band of the era to offer fans extra tracks on their singles that are often as good as, if not better than, the hits. Rather than saving his new songs for the next full album, Noel Gallagher prefers immediacy. Thus, this compilation of those various B-Sides works just great as a listening experience, offering metallic rushes (Acquiesce, The Swamp Song) and absolute melodic beauty (Talk Tonight, the marvelous Rockin' Chair), while conjuring up the ghosts of Mott the Hoople, T. Rex, the Fab Four, and Slade. -Bill Holdship

    Sun Structures

    'Sun Structures' is the eagerly anticipated debut album from Temples, featuring the singles 'Shelter Song', 'Colours To Life', 'Keep In The Dark' and 'Mesmerise'.


    Temples release their cracking debut album 'Sun Structures' - It's immaculately-crafted pyschedelic pop album that would sit perfectly next to The Byrds, T Rex and Tame Impala. It's full of psych drenched guitars, the odd burst of the 60s sounding organ, energetic drums and a collection of bass lines that most bands would kill for. Bursting with ideas, each track marries a stunning chorus with singer James Bagshaw's velveteen vocal, a slew of harmonies and kaleidoscopic melodies.

    The New Hovering Dog

    BJ Cole came to prominence in the early 1970s with the country rock outfit, Cochise. His signature pedal steel playing has marked numerous LPs including ones by T Rex, Elton John (Tumbleweed Connection and Madman Across the Water), Cat Stevens, Bjork, The Verve, Depeche Mode, Beck, Elvis Costello, David Gilmour, Emmylou Harris, Pet Shop Boys, Robert Plant, Scott Walker, and the list goes on. The man Sting once described as "the best pedal steel player in the world" is versed in many styles from pop, rock, jazz to experimental. His versatility is perhaps no better showcased than on his first solo album The New Hovering Dog; it combines poetry with orchestration and electronics with a strong cast of musicians from that era. Originally released in 1972 on United Artists, it is now available again on LP after 40 years, remastered and two bonus tracks added.

    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. 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.

    Disturbing Wildlife

    Invisible Familiars has announced their debut album, Disturbing Wildlife, will be released on Other Music Recording Co. In conjunction with today's LP reveal, the band premiered album track "Heavenly All" - featuring Nels Cline on guitar - via Bullet. Invisible Familiars signed to Other Music this spring, releasing the 7" single "Clever Devil" b/w "Digger's Invitation" in June. Stereogum called it, "T. Rex in a funhouse of horrors," advising, "Let it cast a spell on you." Invisible Familiars is led by Jared Samuel, a New York City-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has long made his living playing music and supporting a variety of NYC artists - from Sharon Jones to Martha Wainwright, and most recently, Cibo Matto and the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger.


    Samuel retreated to the seclusion of a houseboat docked in Jamaica Bay to write the music and words that would become Disturbing Wildlife. It was the first time I'd ever spent more than one day completely by myself, said Samuel, wondering just exactly what is real and then, ultimately, feeling fine. New single Heavenly All is a lyrical treasure map to the transformative and often playful experience of solitude: talking to myself again, cravin heavy metal. Back on land, Samuel enlisted good friend Michael Leonhart (Steely Dan/Yoko Ono) to co-produce the record and gathered a striking group of musicians to help perform it, including Robbie Mangano, Tim Kuhl, Jolie Holland, Yuka Honda & Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto), Nels Cline, Ryan Sawyer, Stuart Bogie (Antibalas), and many more.


    Disturbing Wildlife is a record that slinks and slithers through time, defying the notion of genre and embracing the risk of feeling. It never lets the listener pin it down and, instead, returns the favor, holding you still between the sometimes-dream of existence and the exquisite power of Samuel's compositions.

    Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Soundtrack

    On Red Vinyl!


    The soundtracks to movies adapted from comic books are often marketing free-for-alls; promoting bands takes precedence over choosing songs that make sense for the film. However, nothing could be further from the truth for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's music. Since so much of the comic revolves around the bands that the characters play in, the film was already somewhat protected from having a bunch of random songs crammed into its soundtrack, but the film's creative team ensured that the music was done right. Director Edgar Wright's other films (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, etc.) boast soundtracks that brim with personality onscreen and play more like mixtapes than albums in their own right; that feeling continues here with picks like Beachwood Sparks' By Your Side, T. Rex's Teenage Dream, and Frank Black's I Heard Ramona Sing.


    The musicians who bring the comic's bands to life are just as cleverly chosen. Beck revisited his slacker-punk roots with the songs he wrote for Scott's band Sex Bob-Omb; though they're performed by Michael Cera and the other actors in the film, Threshold, Summertime, and Garbage Truck still have Beck's gloriously messy early-`90s vibe to them. Later, he contributes Ramona, a dreamy ballad that sounds more like his 2000s work. Meanwhile, Broken Social Scene are Crash and the Boys, the rival band whose I'm So Sad, So Very Very Sad lasts a whopping five seconds. Every part of the soundtrack shows how much care went into it, from choosing artists like Broken Social Scene and Metric to nod to the story's Canadian setting, to the 8-bit version of Threshold that reflects Pilgrim's immersion in video games. The sweetest detail may be the song that started it all: Scott Pilgrim, by the Canadian all-female band Plumtree from their 1997 album Predicts the Future, holds within it all the breathless true love and crunchy guitar goodness that sparked the comic.


    Somehow, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's music remains true not just to the comic, but to the work of everyone involved in the story at every stage, with plenty of fun and heart to boot. ~ Heather PharesEntertainment Weekly (p.75) - 'Garbage Truck' is the keeper, with a fuzz-punk groove that's no laughing matter.

    The Life Pursuit


    Back In Print For The First Time In Years


    Oh to be free and frivolous, like Stuart Murdoch and his extensive cast of players as they engage The Life Pursuit. There's no Take Your Carriage Clock and Shove It or Get Me Away from Here, I'm Dying on this disc. Life has gotten easier, it seems, since Belle and Sebastian's early days. To boot, since 2003's Dear Catastrophe Waitress, the Belle cast has indulged a more 70s-era set of influences: Isn't that Norman Greenbaum's Spirit in the Sky beat on the funny White Collar Boy, a near sequel to Step Into My Office, Baby? And how about the T-Rex touch on the opening of The Blues Are Still Blue? No worries, Belle and Sebastian retain their gleam flawlessly. A jaunty lift is still in their step, a carefree abandon that charms even as it also reaches to the 70s for the funk-meets-psychedelia, Song for Sunshine. It's bright and breezy throughout (the titles tell some of the story: Another Sunny Day and Funny Little Frog), with memorably decorous, familiar bouncing rhythms marking much of the album. The downtone Dress Up in You and Mornington Crescent are spare and lovely, wide-open in their pacing. All the same, For the Price of a Cup of Tea, almost triggers a sing-along with just its name. --Andrew Bartlett

    Red Colored Vinyl


    Only Known, Professionally Filmed Complete Big Star Concert!


    The gig poster read: "BIG STAR IN THEIR FAREWELL U.S. PERFORMANCE." Luckily, this iconic Memphis band's homecoming show was
    nothing of the kind. As Jody Stephens points out in his liner notes, "We
    played Los Angeles three days later and went on to play together for
    another 16 years. No one ever said anything about the poster."


    Omnivore Recordings is proud to present Big Star's only known professionally filmed show in its entirety. Live In Memphis chronicles that
    October 29, 1994 performance.


    Contains Big Star classics like "Thank You Friends," "September Gurls,"
    and "The Ballad Of El Goodo," Chris Bell's "I Am The Cosmos," and
    covers of T.Rex, The Kinks, Todd Rundgren and more, performed by Big
    Star: Alex Chilton, Jody Stephens, and Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow
    from The Posies.


    Also included are notes from filmmaker Danny Graflund, Ardent Studios'
    John Fry, Jody Stephens, Jon Auer, and Ken Stringfellow. Per Omnivore tradition, the first pressing of the LP
    will be 1,000 colored vinyl, with black to follow.


    For the first time, you will not only be able to hear this legendary performance,
    but see it, as well. You will be in the New Daisy Theatre experiencing

    Barefoot in the Head

    They say the only people who know true freedom are musicians and gangsters, Chris Robinson says with a laugh. And Bob Dylan said to live outside the law you must be honest. We're living in these anxiety-filled times, in an era of 'no truth,' but what our music represents is this truly honest way of communicating with people, and that's a really freeing thing.

    If their stellar new album, 'Barefoot In The Head,' is any indication, freedom suits the Chris Robinson Brotherhood well. The band is in the midst of one of their most prolific periods to date, with a slew of studio and live records coming out amidst a rigorous tour schedule that only seems to fuel their fire even further. 'Barefoot In The Head' finds the band pushing boundaries and breaking new ground with more joy and wonder than ever before. The album showcases the continued growth of Robinson's songwriting partnership with his bandmates (guitarist Neal Casal, drummer Tony Leone, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, and bassist Jeff Hill), while reveling in the kind of playful adventurousness that can only come from five artists tuned in to the same sonic wavelength.

    The album opens with the Americana funk of Behold The Seer, which sounds like something of a mission statement for the CRB as Robinson sings, If you want to keep your engine humming / Keep your eyes wide ahead and don't look back. On the dreamy She Shares My Blanket, Robinson crafts cinematic scenes from a winter love affair in the mountains, while elegant pedal steel added by special guest Barry Sless on Blonde Light Of Day casts a warm, romantic haze and Blue Star Woman sounds like T-Rex dressed in overalls living on a West Coast commune. Throughout the album, Robinson and the band deftly intertwine country, blues and psychedelia, even channeling freewheeling 60s' folk on Hark The Herald Hermit Speaks, a breakneck stream of consciousness that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. On the English psych inspired Glow, which Robinson calls one of the most special things I've ever done in the studio, The CRB are joined by the celebrated sarodist Alam Khan (son of the legendary Ali Akbar Khan).

    After six years of solid touring with this band, we can still roll into Fayetteville, AR on a Tuesday night and have the most fun of any musical thing I've ever been a part of, says Robinson. We don't have the weight of responsibility or nostalgia, which means we're in the very psychedelic situation of getting to be totally honest and create everything in the moment. That's freedom.

    El Camino

    Reviewing The Black Keys' 2010 Top Ten breakthrough album Brothers, Rolling Stone called the duo a two-man combo with a big-band mind. That description seems downright prophetic now. With the hard-rocking El Camino, The Black Keys' fourth Nonesuch release, guitarist-singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney conjure up an exhilarating, stadium-sized sound in collaboration with producer and friend Danger Mouse. El Camino boasts a no-nonsense brilliance: The pace is fast, the mood is upbeat, the choruses unfailingly addictive made for shouting along, preferably in a large, sweaty crowd.


    A band already at the top of its game has gotten even better. And The Black Keys have done pretty damn well so far this year, with three 2011 Grammy awards for Brothers under their belt, an MTV Video Music Award for Tighten Up, more than 850,000 copies of Brothers sold in the U.S., and upwards of a million units worldwide, plus innumerable licensing placements in film, TV, and commercials. El Camino features one stand-out track after another, such as first single Lonely Boy, Gold on the Ceiling, and the surprising, acoustic-guitar-driven, tempo-shifting Little Black Submarines.


    This record is more straight ahead rock and roll raw, driving, and back to basics, says Auerbach. As Carney has put it, The Black Keys respect the past while being in the present, and that formula has made them sound like nothing less than the future of rock and roll. While the largely self-produced Brothers, recorded at the famed Muscle Shoals Studio in Alabama, had a more soul and blues-oriented sound, El Camino often recalls the blitzkrieg-paced British-style rock of the 1960s and 70s, post-Beatles and pre-punk: artists like T-Rex, The Sweet, and Gary Glitter, along with the heavier swing of such bands as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.


    The references are there, but the sound is very much contemporary and utterly their own, equally informed by The Black Keys' passion for hip hop and R&B and bolstered by the atmospheric production approach of Danger Mouse (a.k.a. Brian Burton), who was behind the boards for 2008's Attack & Release and collaborated with them on the funky Tighten Up for Brothers. As Auerbach notes, Brian understands all the different kinds of music we're into. He's got really great ideas about melody and song structure. For him it's all about the song. Also rejoining them is consistently innovative mixing engineer Tchad Blake, who Auerbach calls a genius with audio, a complete wizard.


    El Camino arrives just in time to serve as the ideal holiday gift for The Black Keys' rapidly growing fan base. It came together quickly in an unfettered burst of creativity by the hard-charging pair. They recorded these 11 tracks between tour dates for Brothers at Auerbach's new Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, where he and Carney have now relocated after years of working in their native Akron, Ohio. The duo plans to embark on a six week European Tour at the start of the New Year, with U.S. dates to follow shortly thereafter-including several arenas.


    In a time of global austerity, The Black Keys work simply and efficiently, with a minimum of tools and a wealth of ideas, to produce the richest, fattest, coolest music around. Upon the release of Brothers last year, Britain's Uncut magazine called them one of the best rock'n'roll bands on the planet, and El Camino, confirms that.

    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.

    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.

    Kiss You Kidnapped Charabanc

    Nikki Sudden's collaboration with former Birthday
    Party guitarist Rowland S. Howard peaked with Kiss You
    Kidnapped Charabanc, the duo's 1987 first and only full
    length. Howard's sinister guitar flourishes and malevolent
    lyrical motifs lead Sudden's paisley-clad disposition into
    murkier waters, drudging the same sludge inhabited by
    The Gun Club and Nick Cave's Bad Seeds. Unhinged slide
    guitars, noise and primal drumming draw up demented
    pacts forged in the blood of Southern Gothic swamp
    stomp and Depression-era devotionals-tales of lovers and
    demons split between the vocal transmissions of the two
    minds behind this goth-steeped, blues-punk essential.

    Changing Light

    On her fifth solo album, Mirah breaks it down and builds it back up
    again with the street smarts that only years behind the wheel of
    love can inspire.  Ready with the maps and driven to the rhythms
    on the radio dial, Changing Light's ten songs carry us from
    heartbreak to wholeness and all the places in between.
      


    Uprooted from her home after a scorching break-up, Mirah spent
    four years rambling and recording. Tracks were laid down in almost
    two dozen houses and apartments - from the Northwest to
    Southern California to the East Coast. Sparse demos were
    recorded with co-producer Christopher Doulgeris in Portland and
    Los Angeles. Embellishments were then added by a slew of friends
    and collaborators, including Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Mary
    Timony, Emily Wells, and Heather McEntire (Mount Moriah). In
    Philadelphia, Mirah and her sister Emily Zeitlyn (Divers) penned
    "LC," an homage to childhood inspiration Leonard Cohen.
    Seattle-based composer Jherek Bischoff drew up intricate string
    arrangements which were recorded in the living rooms of each
    individual player. And Tune-Yards producer Eli Crews
    co-produced several tracks with Mirah in her new hometown of
    Brooklyn, New York.


    Changing Light's reassuring compass is found in Mirah's
    shimmering vocals and incisive descriptions.  There is yearning
    ("Gold Rush" and "Fleetfoot Ghost") and hot anger ("Goat
    Shepherd"), but no shortage of lyrical and musical playfulness. 
    Whether it be the T. Rex-inspired rough edges of "Radiomind,"
    the rollicking lo-fi bang-and-pop of "Goat Shepherd," or the lush
    pop balladry of "Turned the Heat Off," the album corrals string
    sections and vintage synths with horns, a multitude of guitar tones
    and overdriven drums. With calm and clamor, Mirah brings us all
    closer together through her universal honesty and occasional use
    of the vocoder.


    "It's a break-up record. It has some moments of darkness, some
    twists and turns , but ultimately, there's a resolution," says Mirah. 
    So much can happen in four years, even forgiveness"


    While Mirah has been making independent pop records for well
    over a decade, Changing Light is the debut release on her new
    imprint, Absolute Magnitude Recordings.

    The band that was louder than the Who, John's Children became one of the earliest examples of psychedelic flower power. Jagged Time Lapse finds the one and only Marc Bolan (T.Rex) at his loudest and the album features everything you could ask for from one of Britains most rambunctious bands. In fact, the band's stage show, which included band members fighting each other and Bolan whipping the stage with a chain, was a huge influence on punk rock. Includes band favorites such as: Desdemona (which was banned by the BBC due to its controversial lyrics), Midsummer Nights Scene and Go-Go Girl. Also features a bonus track cover of The Beatles Help.

    Great Chicago Fire (Out of Stock)

    A Chicago band known for its muddy work boots, anarchic stage shows and fondness for committing musical "pure butchery" (the New York Times' words, not ours) may seem an odd match for the stylish craft and classicism of a Nashville songwriting treasure, but that's just what came to be on the Great Chicago Fire.


    Great Chicago Fire is a happy collaboration borne out of label mates, Paul Burch, a progenitor of the '90s Nashville Lower Broad scene, and the Waco Brothers, the Lenin-esque statue in the Square where the avenues of punk, country and rock 'n' roll intersect, sharing pitchers of Guerro's margaritas in Austin, TX at SXSW. Maybe it was the salt, maybe it was the heat, maybe it was the parade of cowboy boot shoppers and industry moguls passing before their eyes on South Congress Avenue, but two distinct creative energies decided to explore what music they could make together. Sharing songwriting, performing and production credits, it's the Wacos' first new material since 2005's Freedom and Weep and puts Paul's voice at the front and center of their mighty sonic assault; it's a willing collision of energy and ideas, of different voices, possibilities and permutations.


    It turns out that the spit of the Waco Brothers, so at home in the blue collar and punk rock dives of Chicago, share an emotional camaraderie with the polish of the traditionally minded and archetypal stories and songs Nashville's Paul Burch has skillfully produced in his career, with both styles benefiting in surprising ways. The anthemic bluster of the Wacos, exemplified on the title song, with the whiff of T. Rex in its grooves, adds muscle to the thoughtful eloquence of the Burch penned "Monterey" and the galloping "Transfusion Blues," while the Appalachian echoes in "Up On The Mountain" move from the holler to the pub.


    On the flipside, Jon Langford's jittery first-wave punk urgency on "Cannonball" is tempered by Burch's deft touch with the piano and hand jive percussion; don't even get us waxing about the tremolo guitar and those saucy sweet backing vocals by Tawney Newsome and Bethany Thomas. With Burch's inborn pop leanings as a polestar, the Wacos show they not be all fistfight energy, as with their closing time wistfulness on the gorgeous and lush "Flight to Spain." Similarly, Deano's meaty hooks and rust belt lyricism on "Give In" and "On The Sly" would fit right in at the Nashville watering hole shrine Tootsie's Orchid Lounge. Wrapping it all up with the sun's about to come up and it's time to go home giddiness of a night spent jamming with friends is a bleary and joyful singalong version of Bob Dylan's "Hard Rain's Gonna Fall."
