    Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO

    The Besnard Lakes' Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO had its humble beginnings in mid-2011 and was completed over the course of a year. Ever mindful and attentive to the most subtle and nuanced details, founding band members Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas produced, recorded and mixed at the stalwart Breakglass Studios in Montreal with long time band mates Kevin Laing and Richard White. Eventually mastered by the renowned Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, this fourth album by The Besnard Lakes' features heavyweight additions by Moonface's Spencer Krug and Mike Bigelow, The Barr Brothers' Sarah Page, the always-enchanting Monica Guenter and the return of Fifth String Liberation Singers' Choir.


    The story of the album unfolds its introspection on the endurance of the human spirit during prophetic times as told by a spy or two, maybe more. Each of the eight tracks on the album takes off, coasts, and lands smoothly, with a jubilant slowburn of its own momentum for the benefit of the larger picture. The Besnard Lakes create a distinct and dreamy headspace, an enigmatic and somehow familiar placelessness. It happens in such a way that both the close and casual listener find themselves immersed in the generous sonic vision, one moment as timeless as the next.

    Hapshash and the Coloured Coat

    Featuring The Human Host And The Heavy Metal Kids


    One of the most sought-after of all '60s cult LPs, 1967's Hapshash and the Coloured Coat Featuring the Human Host and the Heavy Metal Kids is the sort of record that could only have emerged during the psychedelic era, and a vibrant manifestation of that period's freewheeling boundary-breaking spirit of adventure.


    Hapshash and the Coloured Coat, the English duo of Michael English and Nigel Weymouth, initially achieved notoriety as a graphic design team whose distinctive visual sensibility placed them at the center of London's original psychedelic explosion. The pair's vivid visual imagination spawned numerous album covers, including Cream's Disraeli Gears, and countless posters promoting performances at London's legendary UFO Club by such acts as Pink Floyd and the Incredible String Band. Those visual works brilliantly captured the London scene's buoyant, mind-expanding vibe, and feature some of the psychedelic era's most arresting imagery.


    Such was Hapshash & the Coloured Coat's prominence and influence that, in 1967, they were given the opportunity to branch out as a recording act. For the occasion, English and Weymouth teamed with legendary producer/manager/DJ/scenester Guy Stevens, whose lengthy resume encompasses work with the Rolling Stones, Procol Harum, Mott the Hoople and The Clash.


    The result was Hapshash & the Coloured Coat Featuring the Human Host and the Heavy Metal Kids. The unlikely collaboration produced a one-of-a-kind sonic experience that exemplifies the spirit of psychedelia while sounding like no other record of its time, mixing primal vocal chants and insistent tribal rhythms with proto-funk guitar and bluesy piano on such memorably titled tracks as H-O-P-P Why?, The New Messiah Coming 1985, Empires of the Sun and A Mind Blown Is a Mind Shown.


    Out of print on vinyl for decades and never before reissued domestically, Hapshash & the Coloured Coat featuring the Human Host & the Heavy Metal Kids has been meticulously restored for this LP reissue, using Sundazed's usual exacting standards. The album is pressed on high-quality audiophile vinyl, and features complete original cover art.

    Ride

    For his fiftieth birthday, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian wanted one present more than any other - the reunion of one of his favorite unsung heroes, Mother Superior - only he wanted to be a part of the lineup. They're a great, classic band that hit me in the same spot as all my favorite '70s bands, whether it's UFO, Ted Nugent, Cheap Trick or KISS, Ian explains. I knew getting to play with them would be like joining KISS.


    Thanks to Scott's wife Pearl Aday, who has been working with Mother Superior front man Jim Wilson for years, all it took was a quick phone call and the stage was literally set for Scott's dream gig.


    The band, which quickly gained the interests of Joey Vera (Armored Saint/Fates Warning) and John Tempesta (White Zombie, The Cult) called itself Motor Sister after the Mother Superior song Little Motor Sister and got together the day before the party to rehearse in Ian's jam room. The energy in the room was amazing, Ian says. It felt awesome. It was just something we did for fun and to celebrate my birthday.


    The minute I started to play with Scott, Joey and John the chemistry was amazing, Wilson says. We sounded like a band that had been together forever. Enthralled at the idea of making a record of his favorite Mother Superior songs, Ian contacted producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther, Stone Sour) and asked if he thought it was possible to recapture the same spontaneous energy generated at their makeshift gig. He said, 'Yeah, we can make the record in two days and we can make it sound really good.' So that's what we did, Ian says. A week and a half later, we made the record in LA over a two day period. We recorded the whole thing live in the studio.


    While everyone in Motor Sister is busy with their day jobs, they are all interested in playing live as much as possible. We are a great live band Ian says. We proved it to ourselves in my jam room. It was our ability to play live together that made this happen and I can see us getting onstage and playing this shit back-to-back, Ramones-style, and just blowing people's minds with the power of these songs. And the door is always open to write more material because Pearl and Jim are always working together and I'm always with them. So we'll see what happens in the future.

    The Soft Machine

    The first two albums by England's legendary Soft Machine, originally released in 1968 and 1969, remain among the most innovative and influential releases of that musically fertile era. These seminal LPs offered a visionary psychedelic-progressive-jazz-rock mix that helped to make the Soft Machine one of Britain's first significant underground bands, as well as a key force in the birth of both progressive rock and jazz-rock.


    A product of the same fabled Canterbury scene that spawned such beloved cult acts as Caravan and Hatfield and the North, the Soft Machine was the rare art-rock combo whose members possessed the instrumental skills to execute their ambitious musical ideas, as well as a playful sense of humor that balanced the band's complex compositions and adventurous improvisations. By the time they began making albums, the Soft Machine was already a sensation in the budding U.K. rock underground, thanks to their now-legendary performances at such fabled London clubs as the UFO, the Speakeasy and Middle Earth, where they shared stages with the likes of Pink Floyd and Tomorrow.


    The Soft Machine, co-produced by Chas Chandler and Tom Wilson, announced the band's arrival on the international scene in fine style. With an unusual three-man lineup comprised of Kevin Ayers on bass and vocals, Robert Wyatt on drums and vocals, and Mike Ratledge on keyboards, the album was recorded in New York, while the band was touring North America with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. In contrast to the extended pieces that would later dominate the Soft Machine's repertoire, the album focuses on shorter, more concise songs that nonetheless provide plenty of room for the musicians to demonstrate their varied abilities.


    This landmark vinyl gem has been out of print for decades, but now it is back in this meticulously packaged Sundazed edition. Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed on pristine high-definition vinyl, this lovingly restored vintage gem sounds as powerful and imaginative as ever.

    In The Wilderness

    Stranger Cat is the new project from Cat Martino, Sufjan Stevens' right hand woman for
    the Age of Adz tour and record, as well as All Delighted People. Cat was also a recording
    and touring member of Sharon Van Etten's band circa Epic. She appeared with The Shins
    on SNL and Williamsburg Park, played in Passion Pit at Governor's Ball, and sings on the
    Son Lux record Lanterns. She has had the pleasure to support Indians, Night Beds, Rufus
    Wainwright, Marissa Nadler, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Patrick Watson.


    Cat retreated from Brooklyn, NY to winter in the Sierra Foothills to write and record
    songs emerging from loops using her voice, synths, and percussion. With her pedal chain
    and gear in a small cottage she explored the gamut from ethereal to turbulence. Simple
    melodies or beats became powerful walls of sound melting through snowstorms, howling
    winds and stark silence nestled inside gargantuan oaks and the infinite starry dome.
    Joined by Sven Britt for a week, each of them traded making beats, or melodic parts on
    casios, synths, guitars, branches and spoons, while the other recorded. Often a cat would
    come to the door to listen, meowing to be let in. When it appeared daily they called it
    Stranger Cat, and observed its alien supernatural powers, as she'd heard tell of the
    Foothills' long history of UFO sightings and ghost haunts. One day they let Stranger Cat
    in. The plump feline ate all the kitty food and left.


    Out of this adventure was born In The Wilderness, the duo's debut full-length out on Joyful Noise Recordings

    Gamel

    OOIOO has always created a musical language all its own. Under the leadership of Yoshimi P-We, also a founding member of Boredoms, the group has recorded six albums that have subverted expectations and warped perceptions of what constitutes pop and experimental music. Four years of work went into to making Gamel, their bold new album inspired by the Javanese style of gamelan and the first new music from Yoshimi in over five years. Gamelan is an ancient form that has inspired a great many composers and musicians over the past century, from Erik Satie and Claude Debussy to Mouse on Mars and Sun City Girls. The introduction of this traditional form transformed the group into a super tribe, side-stepping the road between the past and the future. Their focus is not to replicate these ancient styles, but to incorporate them into their consistently inventive, constantly shifting musical frameworks. They take their love of indigenous music into an entirely new dimension by freely weaving organic and electric tones into a vivid tapestry, employing their keen sense of color and texture.


    While previous OOIOO albums have been largely studio creations, Gamel is the most accurate portrayal of the band's overwhelming, forceful live presence they have released yet. Yoshimi leads her minimalistic rhythm ensemble by making quick, impulsive shifts in tone and attack, the group acting as one mind under her expert instruction. While the gamelan elements will be brand new to many listeners, the band offsets the bizarre with familiar, at times even nostalgic and childlike, melodies. Gamel is euphoric, bursting at the seams with an exhilarating frenzy that is universal yet uniquely their own. OOIOO's music is reflected in the ear of the beholder, with each listener taking away something different.


    Yoshimi began her music career in 1986 playing drums in UFO or Die with vocalist Eye, and later joined him in the revolutionary noise-pop group Boredoms. Her explosive drum performances captivated audiences and even inspired Wayne Coyne to name a now-famous Flaming Lips album in her honor. While the band's tours of the United States are infrequent, they are as the New York Times has stated, transcendent.

    Let's Dance Raw


    Japanese Singer-Songwriter, Multi-instrumentalist's
    Follow-up To 2012's How To Live With A Phantom


    Japanese singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shintaro
    Sakamoto returns with a new full-length, Let's Dance Raw, which
    Other Music Recording Co. (distributed by Fat Possum) releases on
    September 16. The album is the follow-up to Sakamoto's solo debut,
    the otherworldly folk-pop masterpiece How to Live with a Phantom
    (2012, Other Music).


    While How to Live with a Phantom was the first many around the
    globe knew of Sakamoto, he has long been an icon in his homeland,
    having long fronted the psychedelic phenomenon Yura Yura Teikoku,
    a Tokyo-based band that emerged from Koenji's legendary UFO
    Club scene and, across their 20-year trajectory, achieved mainstream
    success throughout the country. Following the group's break-up in
    2010, Sakamoto began working on How to Live with a Phantom, a bold
    stylistic departure that eschewed Yura Yura Teikokou's psychedelic
    freak-outs for a much quieter and harder-to-define sound.


    From first glimpse of the cover of Let's Dance Raw, it's clear that
    once again, we are entering uncharted territory. The record's sleeve,
    painted by Sakamoto, features the artist sitting upon a black throne,
    a steel guitar resting on his knee like a child being protected from
    the ominous mushroom cloud of smoke billowing behind him.
    A grinning skull has replaced Sakamoto's face. This dichotomy of
    bright, innocent beauty and subtle perversity is the essence of Let's
    Dance Raw, with Sakamoto moving even further from the tough
    underground power-trio psychedelic rock of his former band.


    He hinted at the new sound throughout his solo debut, and here
    the music is blown wide open, with the steel guitar as the unifying
    force throughout. Sakamoto purchased and learned how to play the
    instrument just prior to writing and recording Let's Dance Raw, and
    it enriches the post-apocalyptic exotica on these ten songs, fusing
    together the bright and breezy shimmer of Hawaiian slack-key hula
    melodies, the dusty shuffle of southwestern desert blues, and the
    space-age bachelor-pad music of postwar suburban dreamers. The
    result is an album that revisits the soundtracks of musical escapism
    made popular in postwar American and Japanese cultures-and
    deftly updates them.


    It's all anchored by deep, jazzy grooves straight out of a 1970s
    AM radio broadcast, and peppered with flourishes of Brazilian and
    Latin percussion throughout. Atop the music, Sakamoto sings of the
    human race's downfall, the weight of the lyrics made contrastingly
    perverse via duets with robotic vocoder voices and helium-voiced
    cartoon chipmunks cooing in an unsettling fashion alongside him.
    While Sakamoto once again handles the bulk of the instrumental
    duties, faithful drummer and percussionist Yuta Suganuma also
    returns for this set, as well as bassist AYA, on loan from fellow Japanese
    psychedelic explorers OOIOO.

    Bossanova

    Originally released in 1990, Bossanova was the Pixies' third full-length and second collaboration with independent English producer Gil Norton. The album was a noted departure from their unpredictable signature sound and it's considered their first thematic project. Leader Black Francis' (Frank Thompson) songwriting reveals his twisted interpretation of surf music combined with his fascination of aliens and UFOs. The end result is Bossanova, a surf-space rock album that found the Pixies reaching new heights. Pressed on Audiophile Quality 180g Vinyl!

    Siberia

    During their initial run from 1990-1998, Polvo crafted a sound so fantastically obstinate and so perfectly cockeyed that its DNA is essentially resistant to mediocrity or repetition. On Siberia, that sound feels more limber and more aerodynamic than ever. Its songs glide and bob like UFOs, both serene and unsettling. Some of that is owed to a looser approach. "Preparing for In Prism, we
    labored over that material pretty intensively," explains founding guitarist Ash Bowie. "A lot of the songs on this album were not rehearsed much at all. I'd like to think this album has a few more adventurous moments." One of those is the spiraling "Blues Is Loss," which moves from a dense knot of sound-an impossible tangle of Bowie's and Dave Brylawski's guitars, Steve Popson's chugging bass, and Brian Quast's tumbling percussion-to a conclusion that clangs and peals like church bells. There are the classic-sounding moments, too, like terrifically herky-jerk album opener "Total Immersion," which is grounded in surging bass
    and a pair of surgically focused guitar lines.


    An obvious point of comparison would be to Today's Active Lifestyles, released-perhaps not coincidentally-exactly 20 years ago. Where that album thrived on a nervous, coiled energy,
    Siberia feels more surefooted, more poised and controlled. It's the work of a band that's been here before, but the experience has only made them more at ease. Siberia is a record that's humming with confidence, the sound of a band with nothing to
    prove, but proving it anyway.

    Volume Two

    The first two albums by England's legendary Soft Machine, originally released in 1968 and 1969, remain among the most innovative and influential releases of that musically fertile era. These seminal LPs offered a visionary psychedelic-progressive-jazz-rock mix that helped to make the Soft Machine one of Britain's first significant underground bands, as well as a key force in the birth of both progressive rock and jazz-rock.


    A product of the same fabled Canterbury scene that spawned such beloved cult acts as Caravan and Hatfield and the North, the Soft Machine was the rare art-rock combo whose members possessed the instrumental skills to execute their ambitious musical ideas, as well as a playful sense of humor that balanced the band's complex compositions and adventurous improvisations. By the time they began making albums, the Soft Machine was already a sensation in the budding U.K. rock underground, thanks to their now-legendary performances at such fabled London clubs as the UFO, the Speakeasy and Middle Earth, where they shared stages with the likes of Pink Floyd and Tomorrow.


    The aptly titled Volume Two introduced a retooled Soft Machine lineup, with Wyatt and Ratledge joined by bassist Hugh Hopper, an old Canterbury friend who had guested on the first album. The sophomore disc finds the threesome moving towards a more explicitly jazz-influenced sound, with an increased emphasis on instrumental material. The album is bookended by a pair of extended compositions, Rivmic Melodies and Esther's Nose Job, which are broken up into shorter individual tracks bearing whimsically arbitrary titles. That approach was suggested to the band by Frank Zappa, whose Mothers of Invention album Absolutely Free was reportedly an influence on Volume Two.


    This landmark vinyl gem has been out of print for decades, but now it is back in this meticulously packaged Sundazed edition. Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed on pristine high-definition vinyl, this lovingly restored vintage gem sounds as powerful and imaginative as ever.

    Out Of The Cellar (Out Of Stock)

    First Time Audiophile Vinyl Release Of This 3X Platinum Metal Classic!


    Mastered By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music And Capitol Mastering, Hollywood From The Original Atlantic Records Tapes


    Ratt have been making very loud and credible heavy metal rock albums now for over three decades. The San Diego quintet built a local club following throughout the early eighties and flourished into a mega-platinum recording act for Atlantic Records with their debut smash recording Out of the Cellar.
    The Out of the Cellar album features 10 hard hitting rock masterworks like their top charting hit singles Round and Round, Back for More and Wanted Man as well as a plethora of metal radio classics like The Morning After, She Wants Money, In Your Direction and the ever popular metal album closer Scene of the Crime.


    Out of the Cellar was also a home run for their huge video audience, as Round and Round was an MTV smash
    video hit and featured the antics of Stephen Pearcy's famous uncle the late great Milton Berle.
    Featuring the dynamic vocals of Stephen Pearcy, the dual guitar attack of Warren DeMartini and Robbin Crosby, the blistering bass of Juan Croucier and the powerful drum work of Bobby Blotzer, Ratt's Out of the Cellar album is still the go to choice for many heavy metal fans as the band continues to be a major force in the music industry.


    When Out of the Cellar was released in 1984, the compact disc and cassette were the dominant media of the day, as the original rare vinyl album release went on to become a highly priced collector's item chasing major bucks for a mint copy.


    Relayer Friday Music is very pleased to announce another heavy metal classic with the debut top five, multimillion selling album Out of the Cellar by Ratt. Mastered from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe "Heavy Metal Kid" Reagoso (Deep Purple/Alice Cooper/UFO), this first time audiophile vinyl release will be one of the most anticipated
    heavy metal audiophile releases this year.

    The World, The Flesh, The Devil is the Metal Blade Records debut album from Swedish retro-metallers In Solitude. With a potent double guitar attack and solos galore, the vintage 8-song, 58-minute set sounds like Iron Maiden, King Diamond and an evil version of UFO all in one. From the trio of killer songs The World. The Flesh. The Devil, We were Never Here and Serpents are Rising that open the album to the closing pieces Dance of the Adversary and On Burning Paths, this is traditional heavy metal at its absolute finest! The World, The Flesh, The Devil was recorded at Nicke Anderssons (the Hellacopters, Entombed) Stockholm studio, Gutterview Recorders and features production from former Dismember drummer Fred Estby (Dismember). Double vinyl pressing in gatefold sleeve.

    Images 13 (Out of Stock)


    "Dex Romweber was and is a huge influence on my music. I owned all of his records as a teenager, and was thrilled at the fact that we were able to play together recently on tour. [He is] is one of the best kept secrets of the rock n roll underground." -Jack White, White Stripes


    For a quarter century, Dex Romweber has trolled the dark corners and back shelves of the haunted thrift store of Americana ephemera and honed an extraordinarily idiomatic sound, a particular and readily identifiable DEXness for those in the know. It's a creepy doll collection of surf, proto-rockabilly, garage, dark and vengeful blues, and nobody, but nobody, plays it like Dex. First with the legendary Flat Duo Jets and now with his Duo, Dex distilled the punk ethos of less-is-more to the essential guitar/drums template. Left in the wake of his lecherous and slithery Silvertone were early acolytes like Jack White, Neko Case, and the Reigning Sound as well as a current crop of the indie pack like Ty Segall, No Age, Japandroids, and The Black Keys. All owe an unclaimed pawn ticket of debt to his sublime and spine-tingling sound. He is a live wire back to the murky, sometimes dangerous and always unpredictable headwaters of real rock and roll.


    Dex, with his whip-wristed sister Sara Romweber on drums, take Images 13 through neon-lit alleys, full of pulp fiction juvey rock, sci-fi theme songs and greasy denim hipster jive. Effortlessly versatile and raucously dismissive of genre constraints, exciting and darkly romantic, Images 13 would make everyone from Duane Eddy to Stan Kenton to Lenny Bruce crack a smile, a joke or the seal on a fifth of rye and head for the Naugahyde ice bucket.


    Recorded at Rick Miller's (Southern Culture on the Skids) Kudzu Ranch studio in North Carolina, the album bristles with a sense of drama, of tension, of release, of mystery. "Roll On" and "Long Battle Coming" display the cinematic sleaze nestled between The Cramps and West Side Story. Eerie ballads "Baby I Know What It's Like to be Alone" and "I Don't Want to Listen" reveal the crooning, bruised romantic, the harsh morning light of a strange hotel room, a Raymond Chandler novel on the bedside table. "Beyond the Moonlight" is part sea shanty longing and part campfire revival. Then, just as easily, the instrumentals take center stage. "Blackout!" updates Henry Mancini's Peter Gunn theme with a dynamic tension and sly cool, and Dex and Sara attack the big waves off Maui with a chaotic rush on "Blue Surf" - his guitar guiding you into the sweet spot of the pipeline and her drums pounding you into the sand. Hey Tarantino, wake up!


    Digging into the skeleton-filled rock 'n' roll closet, Dex Romweber Duo comes up with some obscure and wonderful gems. The early Who track "So Sad About Us," featuring Mary Huff (SCOTS) on vocals, hits an uncharacteristically sunny power pop vibe. The hopeful "We'll Be Together Again" written by Eddie Cochran's girlfriend Sharon Sheeley about his death in a car accident (that she and Gene Vincent survived). The song was never released formally but recorded by Jackie DeShannon in the early '60s. Finishing up the album is the music of Harry Lubin, who did theme music for shows like The Outer Limits and One Step Beyond. "Weird (Aurora Borealis)" is the music from the latter when ghosts, UFO's, or odd paranormal experiences begin to rear their strange heads, complete with tribal drums and Melissa Swingle (Trailer Bride, The Moaners) on the saw.


    Flat Duo Jets - so often emulated, so rarely duplicated - released the first of nine albums in 1990 to rave reviews worldwide. They starred, alongside R.E.M. and The B-52s, in the 1987 cult classic film Athens, GA: Inside/Out. Their first national tour in 1990 was as opening act for The Cramps and they made a stunning impression on Late Night with David Letterman. Dex Romweber Duo's first record Ruins of Berlin featured guest appearances by Neko Case, Cat Power, and Exene Cervenka. Dex was name-checked by Jack White in the guitar superstar documentary It Might Get Loud, and the Duo recorded a single and live album with White for his label Third Man Records in 2009. Subsequently, the Duo has shared the stage with dozens of rock icons including Wanda Jackson, Cat Power, Neko Case, and The White Stripes. In 2012, the documentary about Dex's sometimes harrowing career Two Headed Cow was released.
