The New Acrylic Series
The new Acrylic-Series is stunning - not only from a visual point of view. Thanks to elaborate control circuitry, an extremely stable acrylic plinth and a heavy aluminium platter, the turntables are made to sound as exciting as they look.
The external motor unit of the Thorens Acrylic-Series was constructed in a way that there is no mechanical contact to the plinth, thus avoiding transfer of vibration. In addition, the entire turntable rests on special feet which effectively dampen all kinds of air-born or footfall vibrations and eventually ensure a continuous, undisturbed run of the platter.
The TP 92 Tonearm
The TP 92 tonearm, which was specially designed for Thorens turntables, uses an ultra-low-friction bearing and an innovative magnetic anti-bias system with zero stiction. The arm tube is made from rolled aluminium that is damped using RMR (Reduced Modal Resonance) technology. The brass counterweight at the end of the arm tube is double-decoupled, and the tonearm is so designed that its centre of gravity is level with the stylus.$6,399.00Thorens TD 2035 Turntable Buy Now
All Hail West TexasRemastered
The last of the all-home-recordings albums by the Mountain Goats and the only one about which that claim is true, All Hail West Texas was originally released as a free-standing compact disc on the late, lamented Emperor Jones. That was about a decade ago. The songs were originally transferred from the cassettes onto which they were recorded to 1/4 reels at Tiny Telephone by Alex Newport, who also played in Fudge Tunnel. John got really excited when he realized his tapes were being EQ'd by the guy from Fudge Tunnel.
Remastered from those reels, along with 7 unearthed songs from the two surviving contemporaneous cassettes, All Hail West Texas stands as the peak of the Mountain Goats' home recording era, a time people like to refer to as when John Darnielle had his four-track, except John did not actually use a four-track. He used the condenser mic of a Panasonic boombox and there was no overdubbing. All songs recorded on the day they were written, usually within minutes of the actual composition. Highlights include Jenny, Fall of the Star High School Running Back, and The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton, a song which has compelled audiences around the globe to yell Hail Satan, and to mean it.

Blood // Sugar // Secs // TrafficHey, what's this? Well that, my friend, is the newest album from The
Gotobeds, entitled Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic. It's their second
full-length LP and their first for Sub Pop. Whoa, whoa, please slow down.
I'm already completely lost. What you just said sounded like a stream of
complete gibberish. Okay, I'll lay it out for you and if you have any
questions could you yell them at me? SOUNDS GOOD. The Gotobeds
formed vaguely around 2009 in Pittsburgh and play a mutant strain of rock
music that is often filed under punk, indie rock, or 99-cent discount bin.
WAIT, THE GOTOBEDS? I HEARD THEY WERE KNUCKLEHEADS! Only if
the knuckle is the part of the human body that contains the brains. Much
like their previous releases on underground stalwart labels like Mind Cure
and 12XU, this new album artfully slips intelligence and experimentation
into a dying art form. It's a harder feat than you'd think.
And sure, their live shows have often been compared to an all night party
where I feared for my life and the lives of everybody in the five block
radius, and their recorded output is akin to the sonic manifestos of four
men deprived of human love and raised on beer and Swell Maps, Mission
of Burma, and old Fall records. But what you get with The Gotobeds,
delivered in spades on this album, is smart, noisy rock with just the right
amount of stupid.
FAIR ENOUGH. SO HOW'D THIS GET MADE? It was recorded in bursts
over several months of 2015 in their friend My War Matt's basement in
Pittsburgh. Unlike previously, the songs were conceived and recorded in
blocks, which resulted in a more experimental feel. But this is no chin
stroking curate's egg. You like loud, double guitar leads? OF COURSE I DO.
WHO DOESN'T? You're in luck, because this album is carpeted with em,
thanks to Eli Kasan and TFP. On a song like 'Bodies,' it sounds as if
you've walked into the biggest Guitar Center, but, you know, not terrible.
Keeping it all locked down is the rhythm section of drummer, Cary Belback
and bassist, Gavin Jensen. They allow the downright prettiness of a song
like Red Alphabet to shine, and the lyrics on the anti-sexism thrash of
Crisis Time to punch through.
THIS ALL SOUNDS WONDERFUL, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED
TO CARE ABOUT? Eh, probably not. Except that Tim Midyett (Silkworm,
Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile) and some bum (Protomartyr) are featured as
guest vocalists on Rope and Why'd You, respectively. Also, I'd be remiss
to not mention the fact that the band's live show is a testament to the
cathartic nature of speed, skill, repetition, noise, and red stage lights. If
you don't believe me, ask the bands they have played with, like Total
Control, Tyvek, or The Replacements. Also, they rep Pittsburgh harder than
anyone possibly could and come off better for it...which is saying

WARB-ATL-0825xPortugal The Man
WoodstockWell, we're two full months into 2017 and the world continues to burn like an avalanche of flaming biohazard material sliding down a mountain of used needles into a canyon full of rat feces. But hey, it's not all bad: Portugal. The Man has a new album coming out called Woodstock.
PTM's last album came out over three years ago-a long gap for a band who've dropped roughly an album a year since 2006. And in true, prolific band fashion, they've spent almost every minute since 2013 working on an album called Gloomin + Doomin. They created a shit-ton of individual songs, but as a whole, none of them hung together in a way that felt right. Then John Gourley, PTM's lead singer, made a trip home to Wasilla, Alaska, (Home of Portugal. The Man's biggest fan, Sarah Palin) and two things happened that completely changed the album's trajectory.
First, John got some parental tough love from his old man, who called John on the proverbial carpet or dogsled or whatever you put people on when you want to yell at them in Alaska. What's taking so long to finish the album? John's dad said. Isn't that what bands do? Write songs and then put them out? Like fathers and unlicensed therapists tend to do, John's dad cut him deep. The whole thing started John thinking about why the band seemed to be stuck on a musical elliptical machine from hell and, more importantly, about how to get off of it.
Second, fate stuck its wiener in John's ear again when he found his dad's ticket stub from the original 1969 Woodstock music festival. It seems like a small thing, but talking to his dad about Woodstock '69 knocked something loose in John's head. He realized that, in the same tradition of bands from that era, Portugal. The Man needed to speak out about the world crumbling around them. With these two ideas converging, the band made a seemingly bat-shit-crazy decision: they took all of the work they had done for the three years prior and they threw it out.
It wasn't easy and there was the constant threat that the band's record label might have them killed, but the totally insane decision paid off. With new, full-on, musical boners, the band went back to the studio-working with John Hill (In The Mountain In The Cloud), Danger Mouse (Evil Friends), Mike D (Everything Cool), and longtime collaborator Casey Bates (The one consistent producer since the first record). In this new-found creative territory, the album that became Woodstock rolled out naturally from there
Remember that mountain of burning needles we were talking about? Good. Because Woodstock is an album (Including the new single Feel It Still) that-with optimism and heart-points at the giant pile and says, Hey, this pile is fucked up! And if you think that pile is fucked up too, you owe it to yourself-hell, to all of us-to get out there and do something about it.1. Number One

ManhattanWhen it came time to record their Warner Bros. debut, the band looked directly to its hometown for inspiration. MANHATTAN is more than an album -it's a statement of purpose and a portrait of life in New York City. We were all bartenders, so the songs are tales of experiences we had or saw, and other people who were characters in our life during the first year we were in this band, Cummings says. (And for the record, SKATERS chose their band name because it captures their young and fearless attitude.
The album kicks off with subway noises, Because that's the sound of our lives, Cummings says. The disc was even recorded by John Hill (Santigold, Wavves) in the API room at Greenwich Village's iconic Electric Lady Studios, named after its one-of-a-kind board.
MANHATTAN features other little pieces of the city, too, in the form of sounds and conversations Hubbard nabbed on an old-school handheld tape recorder. There's a cab ride in there, there's kids yelling in Brooklyn, girls talking in a cafÉ, Rubin says. It's like a book of short stories, Cummings adds, deadpanning, It's Salinger's Nine Stories but it's Eleven Stories by SKATERS. And the writing is much better.1. One Of Us

It didn't come fast and it didn't come easy. It's been over
two decades since Tim Kinsella, Mike Kinsella, Victor
Villarreal, and Sam Zurick formed Cap'n Jazz as teenagers,
and 13 years since they followed up that band with their
debut self-titled album under the name owls.
In the time that has passed since then, the members have
kept active with a string of other endeavors (including
owen, Joan of Arc, Make Believe, and ghosts and Vodka)
that have never failed to showcase their vast, diverse, and
ever-evolving musical aptitudes.
Slowly, but surely, new owls songs fell into place: Villarreal
would introduce a guitar riff from which Tim Kinsella would
build a simple chord sequence and vocal melody. Then, the
entire group would hash out the rest of the song amidst
yelling, arguing, and practices that were often cut short or
"The band dynamic was eerily similar to the first record,"
reveals Mike Kinsella. "In some ways I think we all regressed
to whatever roles we filled then, for better and for worse."
While sonically their technique still has the ability to dazzle,
age and experience have lent new perspectives to tracks
such as "I'm Surprised " and "Ancient Stars Seed..." --
making them more aggressive and direct, but certainly no
In a world that increasingly favors style over substance,
owls is unwilling to compromise the latter for the former.

A bold introduction to who Bauer is on his own! the brisk and
straight-forward instrumentation immediately drops a sense of
escape and newfound confidence over the song's surface. - XPN
Along with the band's signature guitar tones, Bauer proves to be a
formidable vocalist, channeling Leithauser's swaggering yell. - CoS
A scruffy, reverb-spaced take on heartland American rock, it brings to
mind fellow East Coast highway dreamers the War on Drugs. - Spin
Liberation! is the title of Peter Matthew Bauer's debut solo
album, a poignant and anthemic blend of soulful balladry, folk-tinged meditations, and full-bore rock & roll, crafted with an
oblique nod towards the explosion of art, rock, and attitude that
emerged from NYC in the '70s. Formerly a member of beloved
NYC group The Walkmen, Bauer uses Liberation! as an
opportunity to welcome the rest of the world into his personal
history of a childhood spent living in ashrams, and a life shaped
by the constant presence of religion and mythology amidst
uncertainty. It's a bold, bracing collection of songs for the mind,
body and spirit with the power to grab you and shake you out of
your environment. Leveraging traces of Eastern arrangements
in a solidly Western rock experience, Liberation! is the
soundtrack of one man's journey inside himself, in preparation
for the rest of the world to follow.1. I Was Born in an Ashram

Devil MusicThe Men are Rich Samis, Kevin Faulkner, Nick Chiericozzi and Mark Perro. We created Devil Music in our practice space over a weekend in January.
We wanted to give ourselves something enjoyable to listen to with this record... Something that had our personality in it, not just another record to get reviewed, to get into festivals, to get on tv, to participate in some sort of endless, winless game. This isn't a campaign.
Jordan Lovelace (mem. of Pampers) engineered and recorded Devil Music. Jonathan Schenke (mem. of Eaters and engineer of 100's of records) mastered the sessions on a Neve console in New York. These fine gentlemen knew we were after a raw four track sound. They used our strokes on the tape to get us where we wanted to go. Every record sounds a bit different than you think it will.
Some newer things came along for the ride like cassette cut ups, damaged vocal cords from years of yelling, a saxophone and of course the ten new songs. Some old ideas are still in the mix: the tracks were done live, including the vocals. The packaging/artwork was designed and produced by us.1. Dreamer

What's RealDear Listener / Internet Surfer / Intrigued Music Consumer-
Thank for you for taking the time to read about our new record, What's Real. We have been working on this album for the better part of two years. Or maybe I have been working on this album since I was 14. That was when I first heard the bands that made me want to pick up the guitar and learn to play. When I became consumed over the angst, the freedom, the recklessness of rock and roll, the escape it created and allowed, and the feeling of unity with anyone who was discovering and finding the same.
I started writing this album as soon as we got home from touring behind our debut record Out In The Light. All of a sudden, I was sitting still for the first time in years, and I dove into my early musical influences to find that what I once thought were alternative anthems of recklessness, of angst, of societal alienation, were also perfectly constructed songs. It wasn't pop. But it became popular for a reason. And as a songwriter I began to see that music in a new light.
I approached this album from that place. From a place of seeing that songs can sound big, feel big, and still be incredibly personal. Still be brutally honest. Still leave everything on the table. And while current alternative radio is pumping out songs about the "best day of my life" and "wanting to be like the cool kids", I wanted to write songs about heartbreak, about finding clarity, about feeling stuck in your hometown. And I wrote it with the hope that people connect with it in a visceral way. In an emotional way. The way I am connecting to it. A connection I feel is not as expected these days.
This record was recorded over a 15 month period while I was living in San Francisco and taking road trips down to record with friend and Grouplove producer/drummer Ryan Rabin. The first song we recorded together was "Got To My Head". He got where I was coming from and became my collaborator throughout the majority of the process. We pushed this record to the extremes, trying to fit as many hooks at times, capturing throat wrenching vocal takes at others. I was writing while recording. A lot of the writing takes on past tragic relationships I have since moved on from. "I Feel Everything" is a song about the addiction of abusive and extreme relationships, "Over It" is a song about finally getting out of it, and "What's Real" is about the constant struggle to weed out the impersonal and temporary relationships and yearning for something more. The songs came from desperate times. They came from a place where I would rather be in any situation than the one I was in. Some of them were written while in it, some of them are reflection.
I recorded a handful of the songs with another producer Carlos De La Garza. Among those are "Rebel Yell", a song about longing for the drive to care about the state of the world like I once did so intensely, but has faded with the distractions of adulthood, and "Mom And Dad's," a song about the realities of having to move back in with your parents after you thought you were gone for good, and finding everything both completely changed and exactly the same.
This record could not have been possible without my band. I met them all while living in San Francisco. It's a new band from the last record. Andrew Wales plays Drums. Brian DaMert plays Guitar. Greg Sellin plays Bass. And Sara DaMert plays Keys. They have helped me take these songs from my headphones to the stage and have realized them in the greatest way possible. they do them every justice I could have asked. I am so grateful to have them.
When we finished the record I felt like we had made a sonic place. It felt like my bedroom in high school. We accomplished my goal in providing a world for someone who needs a real alternative. An escape. I don't care if that sounds cheesy. I am not worried about it. Come to our shows. Participate in the energy. We will leave it all on the table. We expect the audience to as well. There is something really rewarding in doing so. It's what I dreamt about when I was 14 and started playing guitar. It's what I still dream about today. It's What's Real.

Cuffed, Collared And Tagged (Out Of Stock)One of the great characters in rock and soul music is Jerry Williams, better known as the eccentric, idiosyncratic, and always entertaining Swamp Dogg (no relation to Snoop Doggy Dogg). A Virginia native, Williams invented his own legend by claiming that he had little proper schooling, only to wake up one day and find himself a musical genius (his words). Actually, Williams is very talented, and an early association with Jerry Wexler and Phil Walden led to him working for a number of years as a producer, engineer, and occasional songwriter with Atlantic in the '60s. At decade's end, however, he decided that the time was right to unleash Swamp Dogg's singular view of the world on an unsuspecting public.
Although he spent years working in the industry, Dogg was simply not the standard-issue soul type. And that was good. Dogg continued to make records, albeit infrequently, after 1969, some good, a few great, and most all extremely difficult to find. With contemporary soul sounding increasingly mannered and sterile, Dogg's yelling, screaming, and general craziness is missed. Thankfully, he hasn't disappeared for good, although he only makes records when he feels like it. It would be wise to not count him out; just when you think this Dogg is down and out, he sneaks up and bites you. Originally released in 1972, Cuffed, Collared And Tagged is making a vinyl comeback via Fat Possum.
