    Turn Blue

    The Black Keys' 2014 album, Turn Blue, was released on Nonesuch Records.
    Produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, Turn Blue features 11
    tracks including the first single, "Fever."

    Turn Blue was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood during the summer of 2013 with
    additional recording done at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI and Auerbach's Easy Eye
    Sound in Nashville in early 2014. Of the new album, the band says Turn Blue could refer to:

    A: Suffocation

    B: Sadness

    C: Numbness from extreme cold

    D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi

    E: All of the above

    Moreover, Carney comments, "We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a
    record-not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either. On this record, we let the songs
    breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We're excited for the world to hear Turn

    This is the eighth full-length album from the duo and follows 2011's critically and commercially
    acclaimed El Camino, which is now certified RIAA Platinum. Internationally, El Camino is Gold
    in Belgium, Spain, Italy and Holland; Platinum in Ireland, France and the U.K.; and double
    Platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The record also resulted in three awards at the
    55th annual Grammy Awards-Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album.
    The band now has a total of six Grammy Awards including three in 2010 for their breakout,
    RIAA Platinum album, Brothers.

    I Wish U Heaven (Single)

    12 Maxi-Single Reissue

    Featuring I Wish U Heaven And Scarlet Pussy

    I Wish U Heaven is a joyful, spiritual song with few lyrics, which runs 2:43. The 12 single is a substantially extended three-part suite which runs over ten minutes.

    Part One of the mix starts with a stripped-down version of the Lovesexy album song, remixed with a dance beat. The original drum programming and rhythmic electric guitar riffs are deleted for much of the song.

    Part Two is a gospel rendition with new lyrics, continuing the spiritual theme. This part of the song was often sung in concert during the Lovesexy World Tour. The beginning of this section paraphrases lyrics from Housequake, from the previous album Sign O the Times. Prince also quotes the film Scarface with the lines Say hello to my little friend... and then introduces the Blue Angel, a new blue version of his custom White Cloud guitar featured in the film Purple Rain. Sheila E. is also given a call out, and her voice can be heard responding in this section.

    Part Three is based on an outtake called Take This Beat and deviates quite a bit from the original theme. This segment has Prince using his Jamie Starr persona to humorously tout the fact that he's funky, musically talented, and has plenty of beats (songs) that are so fine. The song ends with a looped repeat of the title. This version of the song became one of the highlights during the supporting tour in which Prince would usually order the house lights to be turned up, and instruct the crowd during a call and response segment.

    The B-side, Scarlet Pussy, is credited to Prince's alter ego, Camille. The song is very sexual, using metaphors of cats and dogs for sexual organs, a theme Prince previously used for the B-side La, La, La, He, He, Hee. Prince uses his sped-up Camille vocals, as well as a slowed-down vocal, similar to Bob George from The Black Album. The song features a saxophone solo from Eric Leeds. The decision to include such a raunchy song with the spiritual A-side was noteworthy. The edit of Scarlet Pussy was included on 1993's The Hits/The B-Sides.

    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'.

    Being Elastic

    In 2014 Each Other will release their first LP,
    Being Elastic, on Lefse Records. Recorded to tape in their
    home-built studio in Montreal between tours across
    Canada, Europe and the U.S., Being Elastic is a document
    of a band always trying to move further out in terms
    of songwriting and production. Initial recordings were
    shelved in favor of starting over, as new songs piled up
    and intra-band shreddery intensified. The restless energy
    that defines their work habits shows up everywhere in
    their music.

    The songs have a solid foundation in avant-rock-pop traditions but are thwarted from sounding
    like any kind of reverent tribute to what's come before
    by being adventurous and exploratory. Surprise breaks,
    abrupt left-turns, tangled riffage, sidelong-glancing lyrics
    and Space Echo murk all punctuate the full-throated
    harmonies, artful melody and bright, ringing tone
    that makes up the core of these songs. At every turn,
    this is a record that sounds forward-looking but not
    futuristic, meticulously constructed but not formulaic
    or predictable. It's the sound of three people working
    hard on their own terms, without a promo budget or
    obnoxious social media hustling, to make a record that
    speaks for itself.

    In The Pink Of Condition

    Recorded at Seahorse Sound Studios in LA and produced by long-time cohort, fellow Welsh ÉmigrÉ and musical maven Cate le Bon, In the Pink Of Condition is his 3rd album, following 2010's A Cup Of Salt and 2011's The Strange Uses Of Ox Gall.

    An album of "strange pop" (words borrowed from Huw) it's a controlled explosion of lazer-guided guitar melody - think a careering Television show or Pavement outside the original site of Spillers - and whip smart bi-lingual wordplay.

    Although reluctant to cite a shopping list's worth of influences, Huw nods to two permanent inspirations - the maverick U.S. author Richard Brautigan (the Hawkline name appropriated from Brautigan's 1974 'gothic western' The Hawkline Monster) and a just-turned-solo Paul McCartney (Huw namechecks Ram, an album coincidentally recorded when the once-and-future Beatle was also twenty-nine). From the former, a wistful ways with words - songs constructed as slices of life, surrealist observations on the everyday. From the latter - what else would one ask for other than a just smidgeon of MCCartney's six sense for abundant, tumbling melody?

    Moody Blues: Collected


    4 Page Booklet With Liner Notes And Photos

    Solid Selection Of Songs By The Band's Career, Including Go Now, Nights In White Satin, Never Comes The Day, Gypsy, I Never Thought I'd Live To Be A Hundred, I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock 'n Roll Band) And Many More

    The Moody Blues formed in the early 1960s in Erdington, Birmingham, England. Ray Thomas, John Lodge, and Michael Pinder had been members of El Riot & the Rebels. They disbanded when Lodge went to college and Pinder joined the army. The pair recruited guitarist/vocalist Denny Laine, band manager-turned drummer Graeme Edge, and bassist Clint Warwick. The five appeared as the Moody Blues for the first time in Birmingham in 1964.

    It was the single, Go Now (released later that year), which launched their career. The single became a huge hit in the U.K. and landed the number 1 spot in the charts. The band soon realised that their style of R&B-derived rock and pop was not working for them and decided to develop an original new style, featuring the symphonic sounds of the mellotron and Ray Thomas' flute.

    Assigned to make a rock and roll version of Antonin Dvorák's New World Symphony, Moody Blues insisted that they be given artistic freedom and be left without supervision. The result was Days of Future Passed (1967), which combined the band's tracks with orchestral interludes arranged and conducted by Peter Knight. The album plus two singles, Nights in White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon, became substantial hits.

    Their follow-up album was In Search of the Lost Chord (1968). The album was again a big success with hits as Ride My See-Saw and Voices in the Sky. Their next album On a Threshold of a Dream (1969) featured the sensitive ballad Never Comes a Day and was their first number 1 album in the U.K.

    The band's music continued to become more complex and symphonic, resulting in 1969's To Our Children's Children's Children, a concept album. It closes with the fan-favorite Watching and Waiting. To Our Children's Children's Children was also the first release of the group's own founded label, Threshold Records.

    Released in 1981, Long Distance Voyager was a success, reaching number 1 on Billboard and top 5 in the U.K. The album featured the hit, The Voice, written by Hayward.

    The remaining Moody Blues trio continues to tour and to this day the Moody Blues are one of classic rock's most enduring institutions, with world-wide sales of nearly 80 million albums and a following that continues to support the band. COLLECTED by Moody Blues is a careful selection of the distinctive sound of the band, presenting the different periods the band has gone through.

    The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

    Explosions in the Sky's second effort takes a more studied, even lush approach to the literate chaos of their 2001 debut. But put on your sad sack thinking cap now, because Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is a contemplative and heady rush of masterful melancholia. Its six songs are multi-minute, slow motion workouts of gentle electric guitar plucks and subtle/sudden washes of percussion ù they're still instrumental, but as lyrical as anything in the indie rock universe. 'Only Moment We Were Alone' turns on a simple, melancholy guitar figure, the drums shifting from insistent catch-up mode to a studied march built to introduce the next layered crescendo. Explosions in the Sky doesn't shift as suddenly or jarringly on Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place; the quartet has applied more structural predictability this time out, but is still quick about setting the sad butterflies in your stomach to fluttering. 'Memorial' is the album's meditative heart. It begins so quietly, reduced to brittle landscapes of tone. Lightly chiming guitars drift in, like the echoes of church bells off in narrow city streets. Then, like each of the album's movements, it surges forward in a rush, like the overtures of Sonic Youth separated, dried, and ultimately lengthened in the blistering Texas sun. The final blast of distortion and staccato drumming is Earth at full bittersweet bluster. 'Your Hand in Mine' ends things as they began, with a pair of determined guitars picking out a melody that's both pretty and pretty damn heartbreaking.

    Prince's Smash 1981 LP Back on Vinyl for First Time in Ages: Provacateur Turns More Sultry and Political, Increases Synthesizers and Sonic Range

    Mastered from the Original Tapes: Lacquers Cut by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering

    Pressed at RTI and Features Complete Reproduction of Original Packaging: Comes With Collectable Poster

    Continuing on with the pioneering directions he began pursuing on Dirty Mind, Prince again comes up roses on 1981's Controversy, an enterprising record on which he turns more political and furher assimilates keyboards and synthesizers into arrangements. Dirty Mind is also home to the piano ballad and chart smash Do Me, Baby, a sensitive song that's considered by many as his finest vocal effort. Given that we're talking Prince, that's saying something.

    As had already become customary, Prince again handles all production, arrangements and composition duties, using Controversy, Annie Christian, and the unsparingly direct Ronnie, Talk to Russia as potent sociopolitical statements during an era which responsibility had lapsed and conservatism set in. Willing to stir it up, Prince injects contagious grooves, melodies, and refrains into arrangements that mix new wave, rock, funk, and pop, all serving to heighten the immediacy of the lyrics. And he knows how to have fun. Saucy, stylized, and sexy, Jack U Off and Let's Work are tailor-made for getting the opposite sex between the sheets.

    After more than two decades of being out of print, Controversy is finally back on vinyl--and how. Mastered from the original tapes, with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, and pressed at RTI on 180g vinyl, this is the very best version you'll ever hope to hear. No longer will you have to settle for the slightly compressed original or nearly unlistenable CD versions. Rhino's analog reissue also boasts replicate original packaging and comes with the poster that accompanied the first-generation pressings.

    Prestige Series Blue Cartridge

    The Prestige (and upscale Reference) cartridges from Grado are the first released since the elder Grado's retirement, but they mark an evolution, not dramatic change, of the classic Grado style. There are three basic levels in the Prestige lineup: Black/Green, Blue/Red, and Silver/Gold. In each of these pairings, the latter model is the same as the former, but is able to meet more astringent test specifications. The Green, for instance, is taken from the top 15% of the Black models production.

    The newly redesigned Blue1 and Red1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Blue1 and Red1 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Red1 model is selected from the Blue1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 10% of the production run will meet these standards and become Red1 models.

    All Grado Prestige cartridges have a fixed magnet and coils that generate a flux field axial pivot. A small generator disc is attached to the back end of the cantilever and moves within the lines of flux of the four coils and magnet generating a signal in response to stylus movement. The user-replaceable, elliptical diamond stylus is attached to the cantilever and moves within the four separate magnetic gaps which comprise what Grado calls a "flux-bridger" generator system. The generating element creates a flux increase in one gap while decreasing it in another to reduce distortion. According to Grado's literature, this design requires fewer coil turns, resulting in lower cartridge mass and electrical inductance. The cartridge is said to be insensitive to tonearm cable capacitance. The Grado cartridges are hand-built in the U.S.,and each cartridge is tested against Grado's standard for performance.

  • Remembrance Remembrance Quick View

    Buy Now


    Remembrance is the Software Recording Co. debut from Baton
    Rouge's Suicideyear (born James Prudhomme). Written and
    produced between Florida and Louisiana during the summer and
    fall of 2013, Remembrance recalls those southern U.S. landscapes
    and Prudhomme's experiences across eight songs equally
    intimate, intoxicating and mercurial.

    We first fell in love with Suicideyear by way of his Japan mixtape, a
    remarkable convergence of ATL trap beats and mid-late century
    American minimalism that turned and twisted more than a few
    heads. Software's own label head Daniel Lopatin was privy to an
    eerily similar convergence at an All Tomorrow's Parties festival one
    year earlier in which two performers, Big Boi and Terry Riley,
    converged at a nearby Burger King. When James revealed his
    childhood adoration for Speakerboxxx, we knew it was on.

    Prudhomme wrote Remembrance while reflecting on themes of
    love and loss against the backdrop of the deep American south he
    calls home. Remembrance deals with letting go, Prudhomme
    explains. The name stems from my attempt to accept the loss
    and difficulty of the past year without dwelling, instead trying to
    move on.

    James' experiences of reflection and resolution led to the vivid,
    emotionally charged production that makes up Remembrance.
    Alive with an idiosyncratic sense of melodic space, his repertoire
    eschews a topical palette for a personal aesthetic that offers a
    visceral love letter to abstraction. Prudhomme references both
    forms we know to exist ("Caroline", "U S" and "When You Sleep")
    and speculates on how they can be newly realized ("I Don't Care
    About Death Because I Smoke" and "Hope Building A").

    Remembrance proves a mature turn for Prudhomme without
    discounting his wisdom - and experience - already beyond his
    years. His obsessive focus on construction, attention to detail and
    elusive self-reflection is embodied in a music devoid of language.
    That it speaks so clearly tells us its the real thing.

    Vauxhall & I

    20th Anniversary Definitive Master

    While it isn't a gutsy rock & roll record like Your Arsenal, Vauxhall and I is equally impressive. Filled with carefully constructed guitar pop gems, the album contains some of Morrissey's best material since the Smiths. Out of all of his solo albums, Vauxhall and I sounds the most like his former band, yet the textured, ringing guitar on this record is an extension of his past, not a replication of it. In fact, with songs like Now My Heart Is Full and Hold on to Your Friends, Morrissey sounds more comfortable and peaceful than he ever has. And The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get, Speedway, and Spring-Heeled Jim prove that he hasn't lost his vicious wit.

    - Stephen Thomas Erlewine (All Music Guide)

    As the lead singer of the Smiths, arguably the most important indie band in Britain during the '80s, Morrissey's theatrical crooning and literate, poetic lyrics -- filled with romantic angst, social alienation, and cutting wit -- connected powerfully with a legion of similarly sensitive, disaffected youth. These fans turned the Smiths into stars in Britain, exerting tremendous pull over much of the country's guitar-based music for many years after their breakup, and even if the group remained underground cult artists in the States, they had a fan base that slowly, steadily grew larger over the years. Indeed, a few years after the Smiths' breakup in 1987, Morrissey's American cult had grown to the point where he became more popular in the U.S. than in his homeland, where he nevertheless was never far from the music press headlines. After a quiet period around the turn of the millennium, Morrissey launched a comeback in 2004 with You Are the Quarry, an album whose success proved that he remained one of the most beloved figures in alternative rock.

    The Edgar Winter/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!

    Celebrate 4 Decades Of Edgar Winter's White Trash

    First Time 180 Gram White Vinyl!

    Featuring Guitar Legends: Johnny Winter & Rick Derringer

    The legendary rocker and blues statesman Edgar Winter continues to enthrall audiences the world over.
    With his unique brand of musical genius and keyboard, sax and vocal prowess, Edgar's style will always be truly
    unmatched in purity and longevity.

    While he tours, produces and records non-stop, it's no secret that his live shows have always been top notch
    and legendary. In 1972, Edgar Winter along with his band White Trash played a series of shows at the famed Apollo
    Theatre and Academy Of Music in New York City, plus the Whisky A Go-Go in L.A. Luckily, Epic Records captured
    the prolific event on tape and the amazing album Roadwork was born.

    For Roadwork, the artist surely becomes a superstar on this mammoth 2 LP set. Featuring rock and soul classics
    like Chuck Berry's Back In the U.S.A. and Otis Redding's I Can't Turn You Loose, plus tunes from his first two
    albums like the epic 17 minute version of Tobacco Road, Roadwork proves to be a never ending festival of rock,
    blues, gospel and R&B earth shattering performances. The band features his friends like guitar hero Rick Derringer
    as well as power vocalist Jerry LaCroix, and of course his late great brother Johnny Winter brings the house down
    with his surprise visit on the smash hit Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo.

    The masterpiece was also a primer for a lot of rockers who for the first time would be treated to the likes of

    Music Night

    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!

    When legendary record producer John Culshaw left Decca in 1967 to become Head of Music at BBC Television, he inaugurated and supervised several series of Andre Previn's Music Night, in which Previn would talk informally direct to camera and then turn and conduct the London Symphony Orchestra, whose members were dressed not in evening clothes but in casual sweaters or shirts. The programme attracted unprecedented viewing figures for classical music in the early and mid 1970s in the U.K.

    Taking advantage of the television programme's success, EMI recorded Previn and the LSO at the Kingsway Hall, London on 15 December 1974 and 19 & 20 May 1975 in a programme of popular music typical of the series. These recordings were produced and engineered by Christopher Bishop and Christopher Parker respectively.

    Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS80 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional playback head. Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards.

    James Bond: Live and Let Die Soundtrack

    1973 Soundtrack Includes Paul McCartney & Wings Performing Live And Let Die!

    Live and Let Die is the soundtrack to the eighth James Bond film of the same name. It was scored by George Martin. The title song was written by Paul and Linda McCartney and performed by Paul McCartney & Wings.

    It was the first Bond film score not to involve John Barry.

    Producers Saltzman and Albert Broccoli approached Paul McCartney to write the theme song and McCartney in turn asked Martin to record it for him. Impressed with the orchestration for the finished track, Saltzman and Broccoli considered Martin for the film's score.

    Martin worked closely with director Guy Hamilton who described what the music should convey in each scene as it unfolds. Only very minor changes to the finished score were asked for. Martin felt that this was as much for Hamilton's accurate briefing.

    The orchestra was conducted by Martin and recorded at AIR studios. The soundtrack was also released in quadrophonic.

    Live and Let Die was the first time that a rock music arrangement was used to open a Bond film. It was also the first time that McCartney and Martin had worked together since Abbey Road in 1969. McCartney had been considered as title song composer for the previous Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever.
    The Live and Let Die single was a major success in the U.S. and U.K. and continues to be a highlight of McCartney's live shows.

    Return Of Saturn

    Just like the heavenly occasion which inspires its name, Return of Saturn, the latest album from Southern California rock band No Doubt, is best experienced with both feet firmly on the ground, and with eyes and ears held wide open.

    The album's title refers to the notion that in the first 29 years of someone's life (the same time it takes the planet Saturn to orbit the Sun), a person is only beginning to understand himself or herself, which, singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani explains, helped her to discern her own place in life as she turned 30 years old. I wrote the song 'Artificial Sweetener', Gwen says, which has the line, 'the Return of Saturn, assessing my life, second guessing.' From the time you're born till the time Saturn returns to that point is a time of reassessment and a growing period, where you second-guess everything, and you clear out things that are going to be in the way of moving on in your life. I really did feel like I was going through a transitional phase in my life as I made this album. I think the name Return of Saturn is relevant in the sense that it shows how we've grown as a band, and as songwriters.

    The culmination of two years of creative blood, sweat and tears for the quartet, Return of Saturn is a bold and exciting coming-of-age saga. An intimate view of the world as seen by a group of musicians and friends who watched their humble worlds turned literally upside-down by the unexpected (though well-deserved) success of No Doubt's third album, Tragic Kingdom. While that youthful recording reflects the concerns and observations of a band at the edge of possibility, Return of Saturn represents that same group looking collectively inward. What they saw and what they created those two years, will surprise and fascinate you. Who am I, and how did I get to this point in my life, when I thought I was going to be something completely different? -- that pretty much sums up the subject of this album, says Gwen.

    Return of Saturn was recorded in two Los Angeles studios during 1998 and 1999. Twelve of the album's 13 songs were produced by Glen Ballard, (Alanis Morissette, Aerosmith), whose contribution was a key ingredient in the album's creation. In our band, everyone has such strong opinions that if you put the four of us in the room together you could have some troubles, says bassist Tony Kanal. But if you get somebody as experienced as Glen, not only as a producer but as a songwriter, you can bounce ideas off him and get some really cool objective answers, and it helps level the creative playing field.

    One song on the album, New (also heard on the GO soundtrack) was produced by the band with Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads, Live). It was fun to start with a clean slate and create something brand new, says guitarist Tom Dumont, who also wrote much of the album's music. We hadn't really done much writing on the road, so when it came time, we had to come up with the entire record. Every time we wrote a song it was like having a baby. It's such a good feeling to sit down with an acoustic guitar and a tape recorder, and later to have created something really cool.

    In light of the international success of Tragic Kingdom (more than 15 million copies sold worldwide, including over 11 million in the U.S.), the four band members were bound to be subject to any number of outside influences and pressures when it came time to make their follow-up.

    But as it turned out, the band was able to turn any outside distraction to their ultimate benefit, beginning with pre-production and writing sessions at a rented Hollywood Hills house. I remember being in a very open, optimistic mood, says Tony, getting the house up in the hills, and just feeling like we had time to do it right. There was no deadline to deliver a record, so I remember not feeling pressure. It just felt like a good place to be, creatively.

    Drummer Adrian Young agrees: We were just more conscious of the fact that we're following a huge record, and we need good songs, but I don't know what kind of album we wanted, or expected to make. It was very experimental most of the time. In fact, we didn't have any predisposition about it. That's always a good way for us to approach the music. We've always been across the board, stylistically, and I'm glad we didn't lose that part of the band, he says.

    Songs on Return of Saturn like Marry Me, Simple Kind of Life and the album's first single Ex Girlfriend show vocalist Gwen Stefani in a reflective and unashamedly romantic mood, traits which she says are often overlooked in her hectic life. I think I am a romantic at heart, but my life in a lot of ways these days doesn't reflect that, she remarks. So I have this inner conflict about it, and this guilt about it. I'm very hopeful that someday those things will happen in my life, because it's all I've ever dreamed of. But right now it seems like my life doesn't have any room for it, and I won't make any room for it because I'm so passionate about what No Doubt is doing right now.

    The music on each of No Doubt's three previous albums (1992's No Doubt, 1995's Beacon Street Incident, Tragic Kingdom) runs the stylistic gamut, mixing in as many influences as the band members can think of, and this collection is no different. Tom says the band has few rules when it comes to songwriting. We discovered a way to write on songs like Just a Girl and Spiderwebs and some of the older ones, which we incorporated when we started this album, and that was that there were no preconceived ideas at all. We would sit down in a room with a tape recorder and acoustic guitars and start improvising things. All the songs were written very spontaneously, starting from a blank slate every time.

    The truth is, I feel like I've been turned inside-out after writing this album, adds Gwen. It's everything that I have been in the last two years, which have been really hard years for me. I just feet this sense of accomplishment, and this lightness has come over me since the album has been finished. It's so rewarding to be done and feel so proud of it, I can't wait for people to hear it.

    The Last Laugh

    The Last Laugh is the debut album from U.K. based Joker's Daughter, featuring vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Helena Costas. This fresh folk-pop excursion reveals new facets of the renowned artist and producer Danger Mouse, who collaborates with Costas throughout.

    Born in London to Greek Cypriot parents, Helena learned violin from ages 7 to 13. Later, she taught herself guitar and keyboards. All the while, she developed a unique inner language and logic, rich with unconscious resonance, mythic allusions and complex food analogies. She wrote songs incessantly, and learned the art of production, using the studio as an instrument. Meanwhile, she developed her confidence by playing constant gigs around London, where she faced demanding audiences and learned to improvise.

    In 2003, she began mailing her home recordings to the esteemed artist and producer Danger Mouse. As his international fame grew, the pair kept in touch. They discovered a natural affinity and decided to collaborate, naming their project Joker's Daughter after one of Helena's many porous artistic personae. Helena describes Joker's Daughter as a dualistic character who draws from the serious to turn it into humor.

    Helena's striking melodies and rich, sensory lyrics reveal the depth, passion and prankishness in her psyche. Danger Mouse collaborates fully at every stage, contributing his farsighted skills as a songwriter, producer and musician. The result is an intoxicating, disorienting blend of folk music from some strange, timeless, uncharted dream world. The project also features the horns of Neutral Milk Hotel's Scott Spillane and the string arrangements of frequent Danger Mouse collaborator Daniele Luppi.

    I Speak Because I Can

    Ribbon Music is pleased to announce deluxe re-issues of Laura Marlings first two critically acclaimed albums; Alas I Cannot Swim and I Speak Because I Can on LP. I Speak Because I Can was the self assured second album from the young British singer/songwriter, originally released in 2010. The album was produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainwright) and featured backing vocals from Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons).

    Since her emergence onto the London music scene in 2007 Laura Marling has steadily secured her position as one of the most exciting musical talents of her generation. By the tender age of 21 she has already won a BRIT award and been nominated for the UK Mercury Music prize twice. While so many artists of any age attempt to locate their inner child, Marling with a sometime steely gaze, measures the prerogatives of youth against the looming realities of adulthood, the specter of mortality, the betrayals of love, the balm of sex, the yearning for companionship, the need for independence. As the Times Of London recently posited, Who else is making music as ambitious, as haunting, as centuries-straddling, as thought provoking and artistically tenacious as this? And the answer is: nobody. No, really. Not a soul.

    Marling, who started out, briefly but auspiciously, with a stint in the group Noah and the Whale, was a mere 16 when she independently released her first singles and almost immediately gained serious stature as a key figure on Britains burgeoning young folk scene, alongside such artists and friends as singer/actor Johnny Flynn and Mumford & Sons. The two startlingly self-assured albums that followed, Alas I Cannot Swim (2008) and I Speak Because I Can (2010), brought the self-effacing and relatively shy Marling an extraordinary level of acclaim in her homeland, with each of them in turn being nominated for the U.K.s prestigious Mercury Prize. Remastered on 180g vinyl with deluxe gatefold packaging.

    Regions Of Light And Sound Of God

    Regions of Light and Sound of God is the first solo album from Jim James, the singer, songwriter and guitarist for My Morning Jacket. Over the course of fifteen years and six studio albums, James has been the focal point of a group that has grown into one of the most acclaimed and successful rock and roll bands in the world. With this project, he reaches into new territory that extends, but doesn't break from, My Morning Jacket's accomplishments.

    Until now, James had never felt the call to create a longer-form album on his own. "I'm very lucky to play in a band with guys that I love, who are great at what they do," he says, "so on My Morning Jacket records, I don't have a need to play bass or keys or what have you. But as a person and as a musician, I love to play every instrument under the sun, and I wanted to make a record where I played all the instruments and produced/engineered it myself."

    The results are nine songs that resist easy categorization, from the hazy space-funk of the opening "State of the Art (A.E.I.O.U.)" to the chiming, operatic pop of "A New Life." On Regions of Light and Sound of God, nothing is what it seems-touchstones from old-school R&B or island folk or hip-hop flicker into focus and then disappear; a delicate instrumental is titled "Exploding." It's complex but cohesive, intimate and hypnotic where My Morning Jacket might turn more wide-screen and epic.

    "The album knew what it wanted to be," says James. "The songs would tell me what they wanted to be, and I just had to search around and find those sounds to bring them into this world."

    This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there's something deeper and more musical to it. I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our 'sound'.-Dave Grohl

    FOO FIGHTERS have confirmed the worldwide release date of the band's long awaited follow up the 4X-Grammy-winning, international #1 Wasting Light: The band's eighth studio album of all-new material will be titled Sonic Highways.

    Produced by Butch Vig and Foo Fighters and being released in the U.S. on Roswell Records/RCA Records, Sonic Highways clocks in at just over 44 minutes and is made up of the following tracks:

    Though not a soundtrack album by any stretch, Sonic Highways shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed eight-episode HBO series described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music and premiering Friday, October 17 at 11 p.m.. For the album and series, Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear wrote and recorded one song in each of these eight cities, delving into the local musical currents: how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns. All songs feature local legends sitting in, with every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews for the HBO series, and other local personalities who became part of the process.

    MTV Unplugged, 2001

    R.E.M. Unplugged, 2001 shares the band's set for MTV's MTV Unplugged acoustic performance. The release highlighted the band's 2001 album Reveal.

    R.E.M. mark the point when post-punk turned into alternative rock. When their first single, Radio Free Europe, was released in 1981, it sparked a back-to-the-garage movement in the American underground. While there were a number of hardcore and punk bands in the U.S. during the early '80s, R.E.M. brought guitar pop back into the underground lexicon. Combining ringing guitar hooks with mumbled, cryptic lyrics and a D.I.Y. aesthetic borrowed from post-punk, the band simultaneously sounded traditional and modern. Throughout the '80s, they worked relentlessly, releasing records every year and touring constantly, playing both theaters and backwoods dives. Along the way, they inspired countless bands, from the legions of jangle pop groups in the mid-'80s to scores of alternative pop groups in the '90s, who admired their slow climb to stardom.
