    The World In A Sea Shell

    A VAULT OF VINTAGE PSYCHEDELIA on 180 Gram Vinyl!


    The Strawberry Alarm Clock's unique sound-full of beautiful, day-glo pop surrounding jagged, fuzzy guitars and organs, among other garage-rock influences-is explored through a number of dreamlike gems contained in these three volumes, all presented as originally issued! Their smash "Incense and Peppermints," which reached #1 in late 1967 and remained in the Billboard pop chart for 16 weeks, is included on The Best of Strawberry Alarm Clock, and Wake Up...It's Tomorrow and The World In A Sea Shell contain fan favorites (and '60s psych gold) like "Love Me Again," "Sea Shell," "Barefoot in Baltimore," "Sit With the Guru," and many more-all mastered from the stereo UNI reels in definitive 180 gram editions!


    World In A Sea Shell: More gentle grooves and soaring voices! An adventurous mixture of psychedelia and lush pop, The World In A Sea Shell includes "Love Me Again," a nod to their earlier, harder sound, plus "Sea Shell," "Barefoot in Baltimore" and other day-glo psych masterpieces on 180 gram vinyl.

The False Alarms continues the band's electro-pop odyssey, now with a honed character and a more distinct palette of sounds. Fol Chen has also traded its cloak of anonymity for defiant confidence featuring Sinosa Loa as its new front voice. It's pop music for people who aren't sure where or when they are, but who know it's nowhere they've been before.

    F.U. Don't Take It Personal

    Pressed On 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl

    Includes A 4-Page Insert With Lyrics

    Featuring The Classic Hip Hop Tracks True Fuschnick, Ring The Alarm And La Schmoove

    Even before they made it to the record bins, three-man New York crew Fu-Schnickens created quite a buzz in the hip-hop community with the oddity of their group name. Once they dropped their debut album, F.U. Don't Take It Personal, their music turned out to be every bit as curious and intriguing.

    F.U. Don't Take It Personal is the debut studio album by American hip hop group Fu-Schnickens, released February 25, 1992. Recording sessions for the album took place at Battery Studios in New York, New York.

    The album peaked at number sixty-four on the Billboard 200 chart. By late 1992, it was certified gold by the RIAA, for shipping 500,000 copies in the United States. The album spawned three popular singles, including Ring The Alarm, True Fuschnick and La Schmoove.

    In The Village Voice, Robert Christgau praised Fu-Schnickens' ideas and illusory rhymes, calling the group 'rappers whose visions of fun, agape, and aural conquest remain open-ended, playful, and, face it, silly'.

    Saves The Day

    Saves the Day is dead. Long live Saves the Day.


    Of course, with the departure of long-time lead guitarist Dave Soloway prior to the release of Daybreak in 2009, that may have been the moment that marked the final days of an early 2000s emo powerhouse. But even that album felt more like a body of work you could have expected from Chris Conley and company in the past.


    The band's newest self-titled release marks a well-documented departure from the days of Stay What You Are, In Reverie, and, hell, even Sound the Alarm. Whereas previous entries in the band's catalogue have dealt with the anxious, even nerve-wracking realities of the young and socially awkward, Saves the Day instead starts off on a power-pop riff and hardly strays from it (not that anyone's complaining.)


    The first two tracks, "Remember" and "In the In Between," set the tone for the rest of the LP. The fast-paced, poppy tunes are care-free ventures, something missing from Conley's writing since In Reverie.


    Oddly enough, Saves the Day sounds more like the bands that have fondly proclaimed that Can't Slow Down, Through Being Cool and Stay What You Are inspired their own sounds. That sentiment becomes even more pronounced as the album plays on.


    "Beyond All of Time" slows things down a bit before "Ain't No Kind of Love" kicks the tempo back up a bit. Both tracks flow into each other nicely. And although neither stands out on its own, the songs reinforce the mood of the album.


    "Lucky Number" plays much the same, fitting into the album nicely as a piece of the puzzle, but without offering much on its own merit.


    The song "Xenophobic Left Hook" by title alone demonstrates that Conley hasn't yet lost his lyrical style. But the sound that accompanies his vocals is drastically different than ever before and it can be directly attributed to the band's ever-changing lineup.


    "The Tide of Our Times" is one of the album's truly outstanding tracks. It's catchy. It's fast. It's less than two-and-a-half minutes long and it's emblematic of everything Saves the Day does right in this album.


    "Supernova" is, lyrically, the closest we might come to a traditional Conley track. The imagery and metaphors are wonderfully woven throughout the ballad.


    "Verona" picks the pace back up, leading nicely into another of the album's best tracks: "Ring Pop." The pace is fast and the lyrics recall carefree days when a ring pop may have sufficed as a symbol of courtship. It's the essence of what makes some of Conley's best music, harkening to a past with the sentimentality ramped up to 11.


    "Stand in the Stands" is, by far, the most up-beat and optimistic album closer Saves the Day has ever composed. Standing in stark contrast to even the band's sunnier albums and closers like "Firefly" and "Tomorrow Too Late," the track starts with a bouncy melody and doesn't let up for the nearly four minutes it plays out.


    Although Daybreak was the first album where Conley was the last of the band's founding members left, it carried hints of Sound the Alarm and Under the Boards, primarily because of those three albums' conceptual ties (They were designed as a trilogy that started with 2006's Sound the Alarm).


    If Conley's way with words is what drew you to the band, this will be right up your alley. Saves the Day may not be the band you remember, but Conley's presence maintains the only lyrical and moody consistency that we really need.

    Amused To Death

    Mastered by Pink Floyd Producer/Engineer James Guthrie & Doug Sax from the Original Analog Master Tapes


    Pressed by Quality Record Pressings


    "It is the poet's responsibility to foresee the future, and it is his neighbor's duty to prevent the worst of it from taking place. With Amused To Death, surely one of the most provocative and musically dazzling records of the decade, Roger Waters has fulfilled his part of the bargain." - Timothy White, "Music to My Ears," Billboard Magazine, July 1992


    An unblinking look at an entertainment-obsessed society, Amused to Death addresses issues that have only grown in complexity and urgency over the past two decades. With Amused to Death, Roger Waters sounded the alarm about a society increasingly - and unthinkingly - in thrall to its television screens. Twenty-three years later, Amused to Death speaks to our present moment in ways that could scarcely have been anticipated two decades ago. In 2015, television is just one option in an endless array of distractions available to us anytime, anywhere, courtesy of our laptops, tablets and smartphones. With eyes glued to our screens, the dilemmas and injustices of the real world can easily recede from view.


    The 2015 2 LP 200-gram vinyl edition of Amused to Death features remastered audio completed by longtime Roger Waters / Pink Floyd collaborator and co-producer, James Guthrie, and has been pressed at Quality Record Pressings. The cover and gatefold art has been updated for 2015 by Sean Evans, the creative director of Waters' 2010-2013 The Wall Live tour and movie.

    Anchor

    "Such a breath of fresh air." - Pitchfork


    Following the dissolution of his groundbreaking collage-pop duo, the Books, Zammuto rebounded with an eponymous debut album submerged in transitional anxiety and audio effects designed to intentionally obscure the very humanistic qualities that marked Nick Zammuto's best work in the
    Books. It was in many ways the most essential album of his career, in that it established his post-Books path and introduced him to a new group of musicians (most notably renowned percussionist Sean Dixon) who have immeasurably contributed to the creative inspiration and execution of his most compelling work to date, the aptly titled Anchor.


    An enormous weight has been lifted from Nick Zammuto, and you can hear as much in the opening minutes of Anchor. The arrangements have more space, the songs are more dynamic, and the vocals are delivered with a confident intimacy that is almost alarmingly beautiful (the collaborations with the enchanting Daniela Gesundheit of Canadian indie-pop duo Snowblink are particularly transcendent).


    Written, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely at home in Zammuto's converted tractor garage recording studio (pictured on the front cover) using an expanding array of vintage analog outboard equipment, Anchor embodies the very DIY lifestyle and self-sufficient approach that has
    come to define all that is Zammuto. His is a rarified art made on its own terms - far away from the insular feedback loop of trend cycles and commodified expectations. His home is his anchor, and Anchor is his home.

    Travels In Constants

    Sometime in 2001 - sandwiched between the release of
    Ghost Tropic and its follow-up, the cryptic classic, Didn't
    It Rain - Songs: Ohia recorded an EP for Temporary
    Residence's distance-themed subscription series,
    Travels In Constants. The untitled EP consisted of a
    single 18-minute song - performed live by Jason Molina
    in his living room, recorded directly to 4-track cassette as
    the sounds of a typical Chicago night bled through the
    air. Built solely from an acoustic guitar and Molina's
    familiar melancholy croon, it's a hauntingly intimate track.
    Molina once remarked that it was probably too out
    there for a proper Songs: Ohia album, which is perhaps
    why is felt right at home in this context.


    Scarcely available in its original CD-only edition of 1,000
    copies, Travels In Constants has finally been remastered
    and reissued for vinyl. Completing this
    reissue is Howler, another unusually lengthy Songs:
    Ohia track that, like "Travels In Constants", was recorded
    and released in 2001 in an edition of only 1,000.


    These tracks are amongst the most abstractly beautiful and
    alarmingly delicate music that Molina ever committed to
    tape. It's an honor to finally make it properly available for
    the world.

    Pop Crimes

    Rowland S. Howard started playing in teenage bands in late
    70s Melbourne. Whilst still a callow youth he wrote "Shivers," an
    undisputed classic, (quietly ignoring the fact that Rowland perhaps
    doesn't see it that way and approaches the song as if it was written
    by someone else). The song was recorded by his band The Boys Next
    Door who mutated into the Birthday Party and then relocated to
    Europe to wage a guerrilla campaign against the trivialities of the
    80s, until they turned their fire upon themselves and disintegrated
    mid-decade.


    Whilst his former associates have moved on to weekend colour
    supplement acceptability, Rowland has commonly been perceived
    as the banished wastrel prince... exiled to a squalid garret on the
    colder edges of the kingdom, accompanied only by his dreams and
    inclinations. His demeanour (pale, gaunt, stick thin, sickly, dark
    humoured, fatalistic) has perhaps inadvertently added far too much
    credence to this interpretation of events. The shadow of this myth
    has seemingly obscured the sheer volume of his creativity and the
    singularity of his musical vision.


    Always respected by his peers, a scan through Rowland's
    catalogue of work sees him allied with the likes of Lydia Lunch,
    Thurston Moore, Wim Wenders, Barry Adamson, The Gun Club, Nikki
    Sudden, the Beasts Of Bourbon, the Hungry Ghosts and HTRK.
    Rowland's own ensemble These Immortal Souls gun their engines
    in the ill-lit background and the legacy of his work with The Birthday
    Party scores the skin of successive generations of musicians and
    fans.


    But it's a history Rowland would gleefully put a match to. With or
    without it Rowland S. Howard would make tense, beautiful music,
    would deliver us his personal vision of the world, would create Pop
    Crimes.


    Long-time faithful friends Mick Harvey (who played with Rowland
    for over 30 years), JP Shilo (Hungry Ghosts) and producer Lindsay
    Gravina make for a formidable backline. Out front the guitar playing
    couldn't be any one else but Rowland S Howard and his weary,
    almost journalistic vocal delivery dispassionately sits amidst the
    sweaty panic of the music, adding to the ill ease.


    The band lurch in to Pop Crimes as if dragging a rain soaked body
    across a muddy field. The ghosts of Lee Hazlewood, Snatch, Sergio
    Leone, The Shangri-Las and nameless guys from a never known chain
    gang watch on. Within the first few breaths Rowland references
    Stalin, Calvary and genocide, whilst razoring guitar lines the current
    crop of post-punk revisionists could only fantasize about.


    "Shut Me Down" is Rowland at his most romantic, though
    inevitably it's shot through with loss and longing. If only Dusty
    Springfield were alive to revel in its drama. Talk Talk's 'Life's What
    You Make It' is re-imagined as if it had risen from the grind of a
    Detroit auto plant's assembly line. '(I Know) A Girl Called Johnny'
    sees Jonnine D from HTRK sidle up to the microphone for a duet
    that will melt even the coldest of hearts. It's a glorious missing link
    between the New York girl group sound and the street smarts of
    Suicide. Townes Van Zandt's "Nothin" is given a chilling tenement
    building transformation. "Wayward Man" has the band wailing like
    alarm sirens before Rowland emerges at his most contemplative
    with the gorgeous, fragile build of "Ave Maria." Final track "The
    Golden Age Of Bloodshed" takes the album out on a swaggering,
    swashbuckling epic, with salvation slipping through the narrator's
    fingers.

    Flying Fantasy


    By embedding both new age and noise-oriented
    electronic themes into his pastoral pieces, Turnquist
    unites disparate traditions and ideals, essentially
    employing sonic counterweights to construct 57 minutes
    that are as surprisingly dynamic as they are perfectly
    beautiful.
    - PITCHFORK (8.2)


    New York's Turnquist is masterful. His right hand
    technique is as orchestral as Nick Drake's, sending rivulets
    of steel sadness out across the water, but applied to a
    minimalist logic with the weight of early Philip Glass or
    Steve Reich
    - UNCUT


    Turnquist layers his six and twelve string guitar
    instrumentals with electronic drones, piano and vibes.
    This first widely available release is a filmic beauty, its
    chilly pastoralism distinguished by the physicality of his
    playing
    - MOJO


    Another bravura outing from Turnquist that is, in its own
    unassuming way, a triumph
    - TEXTURA


    As an accomplished 12-string guitarist/composer, Alexander Turnquist was naturally
    alarmed when the ulnar nerve in his left hand seized up in 2013, but after a surgical procedure he gratefully started the process of learning to play guitar again. His recovery was
    cut short when not long after the surgery he was hospitalized with meningitis. Though his
    recovery is ongoing, and he continues to struggle with a weakened immune system and
    memory loss, he was inspired to soldier on, rather than being deterred by his physical
    struggles.


    Turnquist's latest full-length Flying Fantasy confirms the idea that out of great hardship
    can come great art. As he wrote the material for the new album it became clear that his
    sensitivity had sharpened, his empathy magnified, and his sense of purpose blossomed.
    The unfortunate circumstances he endured ostensibly forced his metamorphosis from a
    remarkable guitar player to a truly great composer. Much like the butterflies that adorn
    the album cover, he seems to have changed form and taken flight.


    The album opens with the sparse harmonics of House of Insomniacs, which are soon
    joined by lush swells of vibes, cello, and even wordless vocals. On the tracks that follow,
    Turnquist continues to make use of this dynamic sonic pallet, even adding organ, piano,
    marimba, steel drums, violin, and french horn to the mix. From Red Carousel, which was
    inspired by Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes, to the somber lilt of the love
    song Wildflower, to the truly arresting title track Flying Fantasy which uses only 4 open
    strummed guitars and loops of damaged tape and wire recorders, every note vibrates with
    life as Turnquist ushers us though his intoxicatingly colorful worlds of sound.

    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.

    Love & Torture


    Simultaneously claustrophobic and
    mesmeric curiously unsettling.
    - PITCHFORK


    "...Breathtakingly insightful and poetic..."
    -THE QUIETUS


    "...Undeniably compelling..."
    -SPIN


    Beautifully desolate piece of Americana that
    wouldn't sound out of place on the soundtrack
    for True Detective.
    - THE TIMES (UK)


    A smokey lament that comes off like a
    slightly jazzier Spiritualized.
    - STEREOGUM


    Stone Jack Jones is a survivor. On two separate occasions the rare and mysterious blood
    condition that courses through his steely West Virginian veins almost killed him. Doctors couldn't
    fully explain or treat his malady, but Jack pulled through, even after receiving last rites on one
    occasion. Spending a little time at Death's door gave him unique perspective on life. While
    recovering from one of his near death experiences he deeply pondered the necessity of death,
    the torturous pain that comes with the death of someone you love, and eventually arrived at the
    simultaneously comforting and alarming conclusion that he was both alive and dead at the same
    time.


    In 2014 Jack released Ancestor, an album which The Quietus called " breathtakingly insightful
    and poetic ", and SPIN called undeniably compelling ". As a tribute to his father, Ancestor
    was a remembrance of mountain string bands, with many of the songs worked out as an acoustic
    three-piece sitting together in a bluegrass circle. For his new album Love & Torture he took a
    different approach, working out the foundations for most of the songs in the studio with producer
    Roger Moutenot. Rather than recording everything over of a few days or weeks in the studio, the
    two met up sporadically over the course of many months, giving the songs plenty of time to
    gestate and evolve in stride with Jack's life. When it felt right, they'd invite long-time collaborators
    including Ryan Norris, Scott Martin, and Kyle Hamlett into the studio to improvise and explore
    where each song would go next. Having worked and created with the same guys for several years,
    their trust and intimacy let them extract moments of brilliance from the ether.


    The album opens with the woozy groove of Shine (one of two songs on the album featuring
    vocals by Patty Griffin), which Jack describes as a contemplation of what heaven might be like.
    The following song Thrill Thrill explores the helplessness he felt in the clutches of the blood
    disease that nearly killed him. Lambchop's Kurt Wagner contributes some serious low-end to the
    song Circumstance. As Jack recalls, I asked Kurt if he thought he could sing lower than me and
    he gave me a wily smile with a deep long ooooh yeah, took a sip of whiskey and put it in the
    basement. The mood lightens a bit on the drinking song Russia on which Jack's wife Hollis
    chants verses from Russian poet Alexander Blok, while Ben Smythe contributes a frenetic and
    deranged penny whistle to the party. The album concludes with the joyful acceptance and
    appreciation of Amen, another song about Jack's celebration of life. As dark as his creative
    output can seem at times, it's heavily infused with Jack's undeniable light and his patient will to
    ...knock a hole in the sky. Seek light in the dark. Have secrets and make the air vibrate and
    shake reality so she shows her many faces. Like a collection of swirling and inviting mantras
    Love & Torture is a sonic dialog that pulses with the all of the grace and bliss that has touched
    Jack's incredible life.

    Ultraista Remixes

    LIMITED EDITION OF 2,000 COPIES


    Ultraísta Remixes compiles a year's worth of remixes from friends and collaborators within the ever-expanding Ultraísta orbit. Though some of these tracks have become social media sensations in their own right - collectively clocking more than two million plays on the band's Soundcloud and YouTube channels - Ultraísta Remixes has been perfectly sequenced to succeed as a stand-alone album (an alarmingly strong one, no less). Rarely do remix
    albums have this level of quality control and seemingly infinite replay value.


    Whereas Ultraísta's debut album commits to its palette with uncanny precision and devotion, Remixes explodes its individual parts and reveals the group to be equally compelling as techno powerhouse (Four Tet, FaltyDL, DC Sux), dark electro-pop (Zero 7, Zammuto, ERAAS, Canon Blue), experimental dance (Prefuse 73, Matthew Herbert), and even driving industrial rock (David Lynch in an inspired
    NIN-meets-YYYs turn). The combination of all of these seemingly disparate parts makes for a surprisingly cohesive whole, and a remarkable companion to the original album.

    Ancient Melodies Of The Future

    Ancient Melodies of the Future is the fifth full-length album released by indie rock band Built to Spill. The album was recorded at Bear Creek in Woodinville, Washington. With Ancient Melodies of the Future, Built to Spill expanded on the big sound that they crafted with KEEP IT LIKE A SECRET.


    In Your Mind is a beautiful track with its Far Eastern guitar lines and thumping beat. Alarmed spirals into a satisfying guitar and keyboard noise jam, while Happiness is like a speeding car - it has the intensity, rush, and twanging swagger of an automobile race. The album closes with The Weather, a shimmering love song that begins with a resonant acoustic guitar. The narrator describes being outside in the cool night, and the stars gravitate towards you.


    These few lyrics are a fitting description of Built to Spill, a band that goes on and on, always changing, always moving forward, but somehow always staying the same - familiar and comforting - as they carry the ancient melodies of personal histories, theirs and yours, into the future.

    Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For The Whole Family

    When Nick Lowe was approached by his record label about making a Christmas album, his reaction wasn't exactly one of comfort and joy. "It was more disquiet and alarm, accompanied by feelings of 'do they really think I would wish to sully my good name on this tawdry and vulgar commercialism?'" Lowe says with a laugh. "but that feeling lasted about thirty-six and a half seconds, before I came to and thought, 'Vulgar, tawdry commercialism? Yes, please, when do we start?' seriously, I thought, 'Wait a minute, this could be really good fun.'"

    Split Series #23


    '[Gately] veers towards the fringes of pop before dancing away into weirdo ambience and
    more solemn computer music climes." - FACT


    "Hewing to a crooked axis of air-tumbling house drums and buoyant bass, Tlaotlon sparks
    off all manner of corkscrewing pings, synth stabs and scrambled electronics in a psychoactive manner belying his participation with wayward acts such as Finnish psych troupe,
    Kemialliset YstÄvÄt. " - Boomkat


    Another high quality, album-length release, the twenty-third - and penultimate - issue in
    FatCat's long-running and highy-acclaimed Split 12" Series features two emerging artists,
    each working in markedly di erent ways to forge bold new territory for modern electronic
    music. As usual, this record will be released on 12" vinyl in the Split Series' trademark
    hand-drilled and numbered packaging, pressed in a limited edition of 700 copies for the
    world.


    A hugely exciting new talent, Katie Gately is a Brooklyn-born, LA-based artist with an
    academic background in lm sound production and editing. Having only recently stepped
    out from her regular job as a sound designer in the lm industry, Katie has crafted a set of
    brilliantly intricate and ambitious sound pieces that exist in a borderzone between electro -
    acoustic composition, eld recording and deconstructed pop bringing to mind the
    widescreen scope of Scott Walker or Julia Holter and the precise playful abstraction of
    Matmos and Holly Herndon.


    Katie's o ering for this split 12" is a staggeringly bold and ambitious composition. A
    restlessly playful, hyper-intricate, 15-minute sprawl of a track, 'Pivot' shifts around
    constantly - feeling its way into being through a spartan, alien space of treated vocals
    and gestural sound-slashes set starkly against negative space. At the core of the track
    lies a song and recognisable lyrics, pitch-shifted and time-stretched, chopped and
    layered into choirs, switching its gender, rendering it into pure malleable texture, her
    heavily manipulated voice seeps throughout the track.


    Tlaotlon is the solo alias of Melbourne-based New Zealander Jeremy Coughbrough, who
    has released a clutch of records in the past few years on labels like Dungeon Taxis, Epic
    Sweep, Trensmat and 1080p. Messy, maximalist and psychedelic, Tlaotlon pro ers a kind
    of squelchy, hyper-colourful, dislocated modern electronica that might nd roots in older
    models like Phthalocyanine or Autechre but sharing commonalities with current producers
    like Patten, Sculpture, Dalglish, Astral Social Club and others.


    Starting out from a series of vivid, striking little loops, the resulting tracks rapidly grow,
    swelling into a densely-layered web of multiplying rhythms and synthetic textures to forge
    a kind of hypermodern Baroque: synthetic, slippery, endlessly playful, dense and psychedelic. Any traces of a club backbone are swiftly disoriented into a messy, mutant swirl, a
    joyful, dense tangle of rhythms and timbres. Car alarms, chipmunk vocals, space-jazz
    synth bleed, clattering debris-beats, and pitch-bent slashes all coalesce in a churning
    torrent of sound material.

    No Need For Alarm (Out Of Stock)

    After breaking out of the Bay Area underground scene in the early 90s Del The Funky Homosapien made a radical turn with his sophomore release, 93's No
    Need For Alarm." Casting aside the familiar G-funk vibe of his debut, perhaps as "No Need" was produced without the involvement of his cousin Ice Cube, he moved into a jazzier - some would say more East Coast direction on this project. The verbal content on "No Need" shifted as well, moving away from comic interludes and towards a focus on battle raps. "No Need For Alarm" was produced with his Oakland based Hieroglyphics Crew with Domino, A-Plus and Casual all contributing beats making the record one of the three "Hiero Golden Age" releases (along with Souls of Mischief's "'93 til Infinity" and Casual's "Fear Itself").


    Though some critics are harsh on "No Need For Alarm" and claim it's not as strong an effort as Del's debut, many disagree and see this release as being
    the first where Del really stood out. Regardless of which side of the fence one falls on that topic, it's without doubt that No Need For Alarm has stood the test of time and remains a challenging and uncompromising follow up from one of the most talented and eccentrically gifted artists to to ever emerge from the world of west coast hip hop.

    Recoiled (Out Of Stock)

    Recoiled is a rambunctious alchemy, of magikal Coil sensibilities and hi-tech home circa 90s mixing technique, all fused in the cave-like early studios of Danny Hyde / Peter Christopherson.


    These were the unrestrained PRE- BIG studio- mix downs, of four songs which long time Coil admirer / collaborator Trent Reznor requested Coil to remix.


    Reznor sent over the original multi-tracks and DATs to Hyde / Christopherson, who independently mixed versions and then met to synch both creations, molding them into these master versions.


    Recoiled includes a fuller, more opulent version of the track 'Closer', which eventually made it onto the opening credits to the movie SE7EN.
    These 5 lengthy compositions are pre-Ableton / laptop generation type priest song creations, with the use of baby alarms and numerous wires to create bespoke effects.


    These legendary tracks were always rumoured to exist and, only the due diligence of a dedicated NIN forum who hunted them down, are released/unleashed for your listening pleasure.
