    The Ventures Christmas Album

    As rocks biggest-selling and most influential instrumental combo, the Ventures are one of Americas most iconic bands. Long before anyone had heard of the Beatles, the Ventures influenced kids around the world to invest in electric guitars. The quartet delivered a sleek, instantly recognizable sound whose influence spread as far as Japan, where they remain bigger-than-life superstars. Having recently celebrated the groups 50th anniversary as well as their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Ventures continue to exercise a massive influence on nearly every instrumental guitar band that followed them.


    The Ventures were also one of the first rock acts to conquer the album market, selling large quantities of their LPs at a time when rock n roll was still largely a singles medium. One of the bands best-loved longplayers is The Ventures Christmas Album. Originally released in 1965, it finds the foursomefeaturing the legendary guitar-slinging frontline of Bob Bogle, Nokie Edwards and Don Wilsonapplying their trademark style to a dozen familiar yuletide tunes, including Sleigh Ride, Santa Claus Is Comin to Town, Jingle Bells and White Christmas. The Ventures soup up these seasonal standards by adding snazzy guitar phrases that quote then-current rock n roll hits by the likes of the Beatles, the Searchers and Johnny Rivers, as well as a few older Ventures classics.


    In the years since its release, The Ventures Christmas Album has remained a holiday favorite, as well as one of the most popular items in the bands catalog. Tracks from the album continue to grace the radio airwaves during the holiday season, and are regularly included on Christmas-themed compilation albums. But the best way to experience these instrumental gems is on the complete original vinyl LP. Sundazed Music has mastered this vintage gem from the original analog tapes and pressed it on 180 gram vinyl, with complete original cover art.

    Hawaii Five-O

    Clear Vinyl


    Sourced from the Original Masters!


    If ever there was a "band that launched a thousand bands," it would be the Ventures. Founded in Tacoma, WA in 1958, their guitar-based instrumental sound would prove hugely influential, inspiring countless followers to pick up a guitar, bass or set of drumsticks and try to emulate their heroes. As these musical neophytes would soon learn, it wasn't as easy as it initially appeared. The Ventures were masters of tone and technique, deftly arranging their instruments in a seamless approach that was instantly recognizable.


    Because they were an instrumental group, their songs needed no translation, which resulted in a huge worldwide following. While many rock bands have claimed to be "big in Japan" over the years, the Ventures were the country's first rock superstars and they maintain a devoted worldwide following to this day. With over 100 million records sold, they are the best-selling instrumental group of all time!

    Little Mountain

    In the 5 years since Said The Whale formed, the band's hook-heavy pop rock sound has propelled them to successes that include a nationally televised documentary, a Juno Award victory, and a seemingly endless series of tours across North America and beyond. In an age of overnight internet sensations, it's a true grassroots success story that has allowed the group to take its place among the Canadian indie rock elite. More diverse than the band's previous albums, Little Mountain is a multi-stylistic tour-de-force that ventures into everything from soaring, horn-laden cabaret (The Reason) to jaggedly syncopated rock (We Are 1980) and effervescent guitar pop (Loveless). 2012 and 2013 will see the band continuing to do what they do best: relentlessly touring and delivering killer songs with big-hearted passion.

    Down On The Upside

    Remastered Reissue On 180 Gram Vinyl


    After the huge commercial breakthrough of Superunknown-where Soundgarden expanded its attack to include pop hooks, psychedelic riffage, and production values-the foursome decided to work harder at rocking harder.


    From the opening chords of Pretty Noose, the group brings out the brawny guitars and slightly leavens them with sweet harmonies. With Rhinosaur, Kim Thayil churns out more guitar-hero riffs for young America to master. Zero Chance turns to the quiet side as Chris Cornell ruminates in a depressive mood: Born without a friend/And bound to die alone. Ty Cobb floors the acceleration with no brakes. Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs is evoked within Tighten & Tighter, while No Attention ventures toward Rocks-era Aerosmith, an occasional Soundgarden touchstone.


    The album's obvious centerpiece, however, is Blow Up the Outside World, with its mix of acoustic and electric guitars; it builds toward a cathartic chorus that rings true of everything Soundgarden could ever be.

    Pete Yorn

    With ten years and five studio albums under his belt, Pete Yorn is a stalwart in the singer/songwriter world. Originally receiving acclaim for his work scoring a Farrelly Brothers film (Me, Myself and Irene), Yorn quickly began garnering much deserved attention for his efforts as a songwriter outside of his work on film. Having tasted success, Yorn released his first full-length, musicforthemorningafter in 2001, which went gold and had Rolling Stone hailing him one of Ten To Watch in 2001.



    Fast forward through nearly a decade and multiple musical ventures to 2010 to find Pete Yorn releasing his sixth studio album on Vagrant Records. The 11-song collection was produced by Frank Black (The Pixies) and is comprised of raw tracks, born of shattered nerves and shifting dreams yet edged with hope.



    Recorded on the spur-of-the-moment in the summer of 2008, Yorns forthcoming album is a self-titled piece with a plain black cover. While in the midst of tracking Back & Forth, Yorn received an email from Frank Black suggesting they record some songs. After hopping a plane to Salem, OR, Black and Yorn set up an impromptu studio where they created the album in a mere five days. The result is Yorns most introspective work to date, as the self-titled album explores relationships, ambivalence and our natural fear of the future and unknown.

    The Magik Sounds of The Pine Hill Haints

    The Magik Sounds of the Pine Hill Haints ventures
    softly into the cool, dark whisper of the haunted south. Short,
    tight spun rhymes about silver quarters and vampires come
    from a late evening session in a small pink house in south
    Alabama, located next to an old Native American mound of
    shells and bones, recorded at low volume with red eyes and
    open windows. This is the 4th Halloween dance party long
    player the Haints have cut for K.


    Mrs Pac-Man sets the theme...although this record is
    quicker and faster, Buddy Holly pop driven than most other
    Haint efforts, the opening track places your mind in the
    smokey state needed to feel the Magik Sound vibe. The sad
    Queen of all truck stops and late night greasy spoons, the
    lovely Angel Mrs Pac-man hold her charm over the listener
    and keeps every loner in tune with midnight feeling.


    I used to work a lot of third shift jobs, serving crummy food to
    sweethearts, the day finished, done, another one in the
    books, and the great burden of living in a modern nightmare
    almost, almost felt like it had been lifted...the sweet early
    a.m. twilight hours, where all humans are brothers again, all
    hatreds and vices and ill wills are temporarily forgiven, folks
    smile and tell a little joke or two, and the haunted Mrs Pac-man winks eternal in the background...

    Fool's Gold

    Translucent Gold Vinyl


    My greatest hope is that it ends up becoming the soundtrack to some perfect romance, or at the very least a great cocktail party," says Jill Barber of her new album, 'Fool's Gold. Jill - aka "Canada's sweetheart" - is a two-time Juno Award nominee and Montreal Jazz Fest headliner whose last album hit #1 on the iTunes Jazz charts, and landed her a national segment with NPR. She has collaborated with Josh Ritter, Ron Sexsmith, and Kris Kristofferson has called her a "damn good songwriter." She also published a children's book, entitled 'Music is for Everyone,' this May. 'Fool's Gold' explores every nook of Jill's musical history: sultry torch songs, Hank Williams-inspired ballads, an homage to the golden era of the Brill Building, Motown and beyond. Lead single "Broken For Good" ventures into the early days of Motown with its strong backbeat, horns, a driving bass line and immediate pop appeal. She channels Patsy Cline on "The Careless One," a bittersweet Western, full of resignation and sorrow. As Jill puts it, "It hurts me to sing it, just a little. But that's how I know it is a keeper." The record was produced in Toronto by longtime collaborators and bandmates Les Cooper and Drew Jurecka.

    Half A Native


    Produced By Thom
    Monahan (Peter, Bjorn & John,
    Devendra Banhart And Vetiver)


    Won 2014 Houston Press Music
    Awards For Best Folk/Americana
    And Best Male Vocals


    Some places you feel like you only sort of fit in and it is this
    theme that permeates Houston based folk rock band Buxton's new aptly
    titled album Half A Native. One of the leading lights of an emerging music
    scene from a city with a burgeoning youth culture, Buxton have won 2
    Houston Press Music Awards as Best Houston Folk/Americana Band as
    well as Best Male Vocals (Sergio Trevino).


    Their new album ventures into vast sonic territories, sometimes
    pairing atmospheric piano with off-kilter electric guitar, blanketed by
    Trevino's heart-clenched voice and melancholic but optimistic lyrics.
    "We take from a lot of different genres and present it in a way that i think
    is most honest for us," Trevino says. "You'll hear rock, folk, country,
    ambience, and distortion, all interpreted through us."


    Recorded in Los Angeles with Thom Monahan (Peter, Bjorn & John,
    Devendra Banhart and Vetiver), the 11 new tracks broadcast a wandering
    sound, from the dusty tones of guitar-slinging anthems to lonesome
    acoustic affairs that look outward and within. Their latest effort is
    music for the search for home; the long journey to find somewhere,
    something, or someone that makes everything fall into place.

    The Open Door

    There's nothing like a breakup to focus your muse. This follow-up to the stunning, multi-platinum Fallen was penned as singer Amy Lee's troubled romance with bandmate Ben Moody was spiraling out of control, impelling her to craft an anxious record full of recriminations, revelation, and self-flagellation, as she questioned everything that kept her whole. It's a fascinating journey for the listener as she ventures into her own personal heart of darkness, her stricken, perfect voice suspended on an unsteady precipice between breakdown and breakthrough.


    Despite the loss of two members, including guitarist Moody who left mid-tour in 2003, the album has a maturity, sophistication, and a singular vision that wasn't found in their earlier work. Stately and as exotic as Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti, with its intricate instrumentation, disturbing imagery, and disembodied chorus, The Open Door shows exactly what this band is capable of. Snow White Queen is a goth-y alternative to Mariah Carey's We Belong Together, equally anthemic, but with much more grit and pain. -Jaan Uhelszki

    Red Octopus

    Mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI from the Original RCA/Grunt Records Tapes


    When Jefferson Airplane morphed successfully into Jefferson Starship in the mid-'70s, their musicianship, and recorded output was enthusiastically received and was a very important career move in the continuing story of these Bay Area superstars.


    Red Octopus surely helped award them fame even further as this amazing Jefferson Starship LP went to #1 and soon became one of the many platinum plus ventures for this much loved and respected band. Their new formula worked tremendously as this watershed release featured a plethora of chart topping hits like Miracles, Play On Love, Fast Buck Freddie and There Will Be Love.


    The band was rich with rock and roll history, consisting of Airplane mainstays Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Marty Balin, plus later Airplane alumnus David Freiberg (Quicksilver), Papa John Creach, and Johnny Barbata (CSN+Y, Turtles), as well as new additions Craig Chaquico and Pete Sears. Jefferson Starship truly delivered the goods with Red Octopus as this album went on to quickly become a classic rock masterpiece!


    Friday Music is no stranger to releasing some of the greatest music ever recorded by Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Starship and Hot Tuna, so it is with much honor they have announced the release of the masterwork Red Octopus on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl. This limited edition masterpiece has been impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI from the original RCA/ Grunt Records tapes.


    In honor of their continuing 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl series on the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship franchise, Friday Music is also issuing this wonderful album with a very limited gatefold cover, which includes the original artwork elements, plus the lyrics and photos as you remember them from the original 1975 release. As usual, you will also get a poly sleeve to protect your vinyl investment, as well as a poly bag to protect the stunning album cover.

    All Ears, All Eyes, All The Time


    180 Gram, Coke-Bottle Colored Vinyl


    First Time On Vinyl, Limited To 500


    Stones, Hendrix, and Tom Petty to legendary indie-rockers like Weezer, the Pixies, Dinosaur Jr.. Pavement, Superchunk, and Spoon to even left-of-center rap acts like A Tribe Called Quest, it's a record that ventures far beyond the clich'd constraints of the emo pigeonhole in which Piebald are so often mistakenly placed (note the jaunty piano romp Part Of Your Body Is Made Out Of Rock, the dream-rock sea-shanty All Senses Lost, or the twee, Shins-like powerpop of Giving Cup). Says Travis of Piebald's all-encompassing musical styles, We don't really feel we're an emo band; we're really more just like hippies that use distortion! Most of the time we're put in a category with emo bands, but we don't really hear the real connection. So we don't like that we're called that ' but then again, we don't really like that any band is called that.


    Although All Ears was produced by Paul Q. Kolderie (Cave-In, Dinosaur Jr., fireHOSE, Hole, Pixies, Radiohead), Piebald were admittedly still worried about whether they could top their previous landmark effort, We Are The Only Friends We Have. You always want to like your new record more and feel that it's better than your last one, otherwise you wouldn't want to put it out, says Travis. But Paul was really excited about the new songs, and all the people at the studio were excited, and it felt like we were on the right track, even though we didn't know for sure. And in the end, I think we at least did comparably musically. You still get what you need from a Piebald record. It's different, but you still get sufficiently rocked.
