David Axelrod

David Axelrod delivered one of the great psychedelic albums with 1968’s Song of Innocence, based around the poetry of William Blake. It is considered by many his masterpiece. Song of Innocence is this weird hybrid that no one, not even Axelrod himself, could ever really describe. The listener is pulled in by his melodies, simplistic at first blush, but colored by odd chord progressions and turn arounds, grounded by the drummer Earl Palmer and Carol Kaye’s funk, torn between the juxtaposition of musical elements – a jazz vibraphone solo here, a fuzz guitar tear here, a nod to the baroque in Don Randi’s clavichord comps – and put at ease, always, by Axe’s arrangements, which utilize brass and strings in a way that no 1960s arranger did. It’s worth noting that there are really count-on-your-hand examples of anything that might even be compared to Song of Innocence. Perhaps Arthur Verocai’s self-titled and only artist album, issued on the Brasilian Continental label in 1972, or the collaborations between Serge Gainsbourg and Jean Claude Vannier, which found their epitome in 1971’s Histoire de Melody Nelson. But even these albums, superb, in any thinking music fan’s canon of the best from this era, perhaps in their lives - and perhaps in line with Song of Innocence - are one-offs. Axelrod’s Song of Innocence set in path a series of artist albums on Capitol and other labels and influenced the world countless times over, from The Verve to DJ Shadow to Madlib to J.Dilla.
Remastered from the original tapes in a new transfer, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.

Bradley's Barn

New 2 x LP: $32.98 Buy

The Beau Brummels, taking their name from George Bryan "Beau" Brummell, who was a model dandy in British society in the 1800s, originally formed in San Francisco in 1964. The band's debut single, "Laugh Laugh" helped break them into the mainstream and would later be cited as helping to establish the San Francisco Sound. By 1968, Sal Valentine (lead vocals) and guitarist Ron Elliottt were a duo when they stepped into Owen Bradley's studio in Mt. Juliet, TN, about a half hour outside Nashville. With legendary producer Lenny Waronker in tow and backed by some of Nashville's finest session musicians, they conjured up an intimate and heartbreaking final stop on their five year journey from British-folk rockers to alternative country obscurity. What they created was like nothing else and has stood the test of time. This deluxe expanded edition for Record Store Day pulls together the homespun, inviting and timeless music created in Bradley's Barn and adds a bonus LP of demo recordings that are finally making their debut on vinyl.

SIDE A: "Turn Around", "An Added Attraction", "Deep Water", "Long Walking Down To Misery", "Little Bird", "Cherokee Girl"  SIDE B: "I'm A Sleeper", "The Loneliest Man In Town", "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down", "Jessica", "Bless You California" SIDE C: "Lift Me (Alternate Take)", "I Love You Mama (Alternate Take)", "Just A Little Bit of Lovin' (Demo)", "Tan Oak Tree", "Another", "High There", "Black Crow (Stereo Demo)", "Deep Water (Alternate Version)" SIDE D: "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down (Alternate Mix)", "Jessica (Alternate Take)", "Bittersweet", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "Long Black Veil" "Confessions (Demo)"

"Yeah Yeah"

New 12" Vinyl: $13.99 Buy

"Yeah, Yeah", by the mysterious Memphis underground group Blackrock, was originally recorded in 1969 and released as a 45 RPM 7" single. It's become a cult classic and been sampled by artists such as The Black Keys, Royce Da 5'9, The Roots, and Snow. (It's believed that Jay-Z also recorded a track featuring the sample which has never been released.)  Formed by two session musicians from Stax Records (Archie Turner, Cornell McFadden)  and two session musicians from Hi Records (Willie Pettis, Kurt Dudley), Blackrock appeared for a short time on the Memphis music scene, and it's believed that they first performed at the 1970 Memphis Country Blues Festival at what was then the Overton Park Shell, sharing the line-up with Sid Selvidge, Electric Blues Watermelon, Furry Lewis and Bukka White, among others. They recorded two incredible sides of a 45 single for the Select-O-Hits label in North Memphis. "Yeah, Yeah" was an amazing slab of funk with a rock-hard foundation of drumming provided by McFadden. The flip side "Bad Cloud Overhead" was more dark and foreboding, with lyrics about the drug culture and "gettin busted." Both singles were edited out of a longer continuous performance that had been recorded. Both appear on this RSD 2018 release, along with an extended version of "Yeah Yeah" and an unreleased track.

John Carter Cash has been producing music for the past 25 years, but has written his own music his whole life. Working out of The Cash Cabin Studio, John Carter’s creative center, "We Must Believe In Magic" is a collection of 17 songs recorded over the course of the last ten years. On this album, there comes together an assort-ed and wondrous host of musical guests, from some of the most recorded Nashville session players ever, to visionary recording artists from the bluegrass, rock, and country music world.  For the most part, the music is original, some co-written with a number of master songwriters, including Bill Miller, Shawn Camp, and Wesley Orbison. Much of the production is sparse and simple, focusing on the song and the individual instrumentalist. But John Carter certainly holds no limit or containment around his creative energy, and this double-album is certainly diverse and presents an unparalleled epic journey.

'First released on by James Iha and D'arcy Wretsky's Smashing Pumpkins offshoot label Scratchie Records in 1996, the Chainsaw Kittens' self-titled album was never officially released on vinyl. For the album, the Oklahoma four-piece enlisted the help of The Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd along with the help of a number of violinists and orchestra members, successfully making the album their most commercially successful. The Chainsaw Kittens toured with the album for over three years, selling out stadiums and theaters with bands like the Smashing Pumpkins, who often cite the Kittens as an early influence, along with Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Of the album, AllMusic says "the overall feeling of the album is more melancholy and thoughtful than any previous one, capturing the sense of sadness and desperation...". For this first ever official release of the album on vinyl, a wealth of archival material has been drudged up, including never before seen live photos and art which will be included in an inner booklet.

Can I Borrow A Dollar?

New Vinyl: $38.99 Buy

While hip-hop was experiencing a creative revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the genre was still somewhat restricted geographically, primarily dominated by New York City and Los Angeles.  Acclaimed artist Common was among the first successful rappers from elsewhere, officially putting Chicago on the hip-hop map with this debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar?.  Released in 1992, the album is a vintage boom-bap masterpiece, with famed producer No I.D. behind the boards on 12 of 13 tracks.  It also marks the beginning of a storied career, as Common would go on to release three gold albums, create classics with the likes of J Dilla and Kanye West, win multiple Grammys and even an Academy Award, and land several major roles as an actor.  Long out-of-print, Can I Borrow A Dollar? is now back on 2LP vinyl while supplies last.  This 25th anniversary edition also includes a bonus 7” featuring the rare B-side “Can-I-Bust” and the instrumental for the single “Breaker 1/9”. 

A Penny For My Thoughts, Charms Alarm, Take It EZ, Heidi Hoe, Breaker 1/9, Two Scoops Of Raisins, No Defense, Blows To The Temple, Just In The Nick Of Rhyme, Tricks Up My Sleeve, Puppy Chow, Soul By The Pound, Pitchin’ Pennies, Can-I-Bust (Bonus), Breaker 1/9 Instrumental (Bonus)

Compton's Most Wanted

There are West Coast classics, and then there is Music To Driveby, the third LP from the group that birthed MC Eiht: Compton’s Most Wanted. Although the group started in the late ‘80s with multiple MCs (including Tha Chill and Boom Bam), by 1992 Eight was pulling the group’s vocal weight – supported by DJ Mike T on turntables and production – and even producing and co-producing tracks. Music To Driveby might lack beats-per-minute variety, but to fans that’s not a bad thing. Across the board, this is mid-tempo, super deep, funky hip-hop, made for cars creeping along boulevards across the West and South, and it’s about as good as it gets for such purposes. Just about filler-free, the album struts intensely and with purpose, as Eiht throws tales of Cali street life at fans for an hour straight, almost without a break. This solo marathon is given a respite only once, with Scarface’s guest spot on “N 2 Deep,” an excellent hood roller supported by a soulful guitar lick sampled from Lyn Collins’ “Do Your Thing.” Elsewhere, Eiht rolls alone and intensely, on cuts like the classic smash single “Hood Took Me Under”; the album’s second single and Tim Dog attack “Who’s Fu**ing Who?”; the hometown big-up “Compton 4 Life”; and hustle tales like “Jack Mode” and “I Gots To Get Over.” After this album, Eiht released more classics under his own name, and with similar fan worship. It was the continuation of a legendary career and Music To Driveby still ranks high on anyone’s “West Coast Legends” playlist.  THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

Curved Air

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a strictly limited edition Picture Disc LP of Curved Air's classic 1970 debut album "Air Conditioning". Originally issued on the Warner Bros. label in November 1970, "Air Conditioning" showcased the highly innovative talents of Sonja Kristina (vocals), ex-Royal College of Music student Darryl Way (violin), former Royal Academy of Music student Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesiser), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums). Taking their name from the album "A Rainbow in Curved Air" by American composer Terry Riley, Curved Air's debut album perfectly demonstrated the band's innovative musical approach, blending classical, electronic and folk music influences in their work and featuring Sonja Kristina's sublime vocals. Featuring such classic tracks as 'It Happened Today', 'Propositions', 'Vivaldi' and 'Situations', "Air Conditioning" was a Top Ten hit in the UK and firmly established Curved Air as one of Britain's foremost progressive bands. Issued as THE first rock picture disc LP on its original release, this new picture disc edition has been cut at Abbey Road Studios and is a fitting tribute to a classic album by a legendary band.

New LP: $25.99 Buy

Billy Davis is a true rock 'n' roll troubadour. Having performed with Hank Ballard & The Midnighters and Little Richard, Davis is no stranger to rock 'n' roll. You'll hear his guitar playing on hits like 'Finger Popping Time', 'Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go'.and Jackie Wilson's 'Higher And Higher'. Davis taught Jimi Hendrix how to play the guitar (really), and he was personally invited by Elvis Presley to perform with him at Graceland. He was a close personal friend to Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson, and he rubbed shoulders with a member of the Manson family who secretly toured with Ballard in the 1980s under a different name. He's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as he should be. This is Billy Davis' inaugural release with Jett Plastic, and we are insanely proud to have worked with engineer Zach Shipps on this completely solo effort, pressed on chestnut brown vinyl with a download card and booklet enclosed.

Ruff Draft: Dilla's Mix

New Vinyl: $27.98 Buy

The producer’s own mixes – recently rediscovered - of his seminal EP, expanded with bonus tracks into a 2LP set, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.
When Ruff Draft saw its initial release in 2003, J Dilla possessed production skills on par with anyone in hip-hop – technically and creatively. “At the top of his game,” says longtime friend and collaborator, Karriem Riggins. After years of building while modestly deferring to others of both greater and lesser notoriety, Dilla finally completed the first solo endeavor on his own label, entirely on his own terms. The significance of such an autonomous success often gets overlooked, and partly accounts for why Ruff Draft is one of the lesser-referenced entries in Dilla’s oeuvre. “It’s a mysterious little project,” says his mother, Maureen Yancey. “But out of his entire career, that was the happiest time.”

Prior to recording the EP, Dilla found himself at a crossroads. Estranged from his label, MCA, and separated from the mother of his youngest daughter, frustration abounded both personally and professionally. Dilla spent parts of 2002 and 2003 working on an album for MCA that featured his rapping over contributions from other producers with whom he had connected and whose music he respected. At the time, he was known primarily for his beats, yet reviled for his MCing by most anyone not from his hometown of Detroit. The project was to be an intentional freak of the industry.

The project would go on to spur his collaborative album with Madlib, Jaylib, and would first showcase the template that he would take to his greatest heights with 2006’s Donuts. The Stones Throw reissue of Ruff Draft from 2008 featured remixes of the songs from the album, done without Dilla’s involvement. This version of the album takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixes of the album and restores his vision for the project. “Straight from the mothafuckin’ cassette,” as he phrased the sound he was going for on the EP’s intro. It is buttressed by unreleased tracks and is presented in two versions: LP one is the EP as it was originally released; LP 2 is the alternate version that Dilla had for the project. Author Ronnie Reese expands upon his original liner notes to further tell Dilla’s story, in a booklet complete with never before published photographs from the Ruff Draft photo session.

California

New Vinyl: $19.98 Buy

​The California EP pays homage to Wes’ first full-length release, Florida, where he spent much of his youth. The sonics on California share a similar tone: slow, vibey, & melancholic, a bit of a departure from the sound he has been known for in recent years. The vibe of the EP is somewhat dark, contrary to the warm and carefree lifestyle one would expect of someone living in California. This may very well be a reflection of the bleak underside of fame & excess in Hollywood​.​ The EP is much more than just a handful of tracks​; it's an introspective body of work.  Diplo has recruited industry heavyweights and newcomers alike, including Santigold, Dram, Lil’ Yachty, MØ, Goldlink and more, as well as LA-based artist, February James, who was commissioned to create inspired portraits of each of the artists that appear on the EP, housed in the gatefold jacket.

Dr. Who

The Tomb of the Cybermen launched the 1967/8 series of Doctor Who. Ascribed a legendary status by the fans, the serial was believed lost for many years until a full print of the series was recovered from Hong Kong in 1992. The action of The Tomb of the Cybermen follows directly on from that of the preceding serial The Evil of the Daleks, with the Doctor and Jamie welcoming the newly orphaned Victoria aboard the TARDIS. Commissioned as Doctor Who and the Cybermen Planet, this was the third encounter between the Doctor and his half-human, half-machine foes. It was co-written by Kit Pedler, who devised the Cybermen in The Tenth Planet, and Gerry Davis, the story editor who had helped develop them. Patrick Troughton faces the dreaded Cybermen in the digitally remastered soundtrack of the classic BBC TV story, with linking narration by Frazer Hines. 2 hours of audio over 2LP presented in a gatefold sleeve. Features brand new artwork + pressed on coloured 180g heavyweight vinyl. Also includes bespoke sleeve notes and never before seen behind the scenes photography from the filming

Double Date Original Score

New Vinyl: $33.98 Buy

Double Date is an independent British horror film that was released to great applause in 2017. The film was written by and starred Danny Morgan and was the debut movie directed by Benjamin Barfoot.  Ben approached Goat in 2016 asking them if they would be interested in appearing in the film he was making as he had a club scene where he wanted to feature a band playing live. And when he and Danny were coming up with the idea for the movie they had Goat’s ‘World Music’ album on repeat and it was the band's infectious tribal grooves that he wanted in the scene.  During filming of  Goat’s scene Ben and the band bonded and he invited Goat to score the whole film, so their unique DNA would be running throughout the whole picture. The band liked the idea and decided to take the challenge on. And we at Rocket are very excited to be able to release the complete score Goat created for the film on a special ltd edition ‘pool of blood’ coloured vinyl 10” LP especially for Record Store Day 2018. The album contains all the original music Goat created to soundtrack the film plus the music they made for the trailer.

Lost in L.A.

New LP: $19.99 Buy

In 1965, a young Tim Hardin left New York City for the 'California Dreamin' of Los Angeles. Like many singer/songwriters of the time, he landed at the folk den of the famed music venue, The Troubadour. Holding court there was noted hot L.A. record producer, Jim Dickson. A staff producer for such labels as World Pacifc, Elektra and Warner Bros Records, Jim had access to the World Pacific Recording Studio. The studio where the likes of Sam Cooke, the Beach Boys, Ravi Shankar, Byrds, etc, first recorded. Jim pursued Tim to lay down some of his songs at the studio, providing a back up group with Tim on piano. Recorded on 1/2", 3 track tape, these recordings have never been heard since they were recorded and three of the four Tim Hardin songs have never been copyright or published until now. The 180 gram vinyl records were pressed at Hand Drawn Pressings in Texas on the newly designed and manufactured 'WarmTone' automated presses. Packaged in a limited edition numbered silver foil jacket.

Steve Kalinich

Steve Kalinich is best known for his association with The Beach Boys, with whom he collaborated on songs such as “Little Bird” and “Be Still.” His songwriting partnership with Brian Wilson extends into his solo work, including “A Friend Like You,” the duet between Brian and Paul McCartney. His lyrics have always been imbued with a strong affinity for the transcendental, and this album is no exception, with the music ranging from dark Jim Carroll/Leonard Cohen-ish lamentations (“Things You Cannot Control”) to bluesy r&b rock (“Here With You”) and emphatic rockers (“13th Level” and the title track). Scrambled Eggs is the follow-up record to his first solo album, A WORLD OF PEACE which was produced by Brian Wilson in 1967. It features a dozen new songs by Stevie, cowritten with friends like Dylan LeBlanc, Tara Holloway, Ellis Hooks, Robert “Butch” Johnson, and producer Jon Tiven. Stevie’s poetic sensibilities shine forth, and he is joined by singing partners Black Francis, Bekka Bramlett, Ellis Hooks and the aforementioned Dylan LeBlanc and Tara Holloway. Musicians include Mickey Curry, Todd Snare and Shannon Pollard on drums and percussion, Sally Tiven on bass, Robert “Butch” Johnson and Jon Tiven on guitar and Tiven on most everything else.

Granfalloon

New LP: $28.99 Buy

Reissue of the only prog LP Takoma Records ever released -- the 1974 slab by L.A.'s Laser Pace. The album's title, Granfalloon, is a term created by the late Kurt Vonnegut to describe a bunch of people who pretend to be an affinity group without having any actual affinity for each other. We're uncertain if that is suppose to refer to factions inside Laser Pace, but no matter. The album is probably the strangest pieces of wax dripped by Takoma (apart from Charlie Nothing, natch) and seems wildly out of synch with the label's presumed focus. But is a goddamn monster of odd charm, no two ways about it.

Latin Playboys

New Vinyl: $21.98 Buy

Self-titled debut album of experimental band Latin Playboys. First time on vinyl. Latin Playboys is a musical group comprising David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake, active in the 1990s. The band began with a series of demo recordings made by Hidalgo on a home cassette tape 4-track machine. The demos were intended for Hidalgo's main group, Los Lobos, but producer/keyboardist Froom thought the demos were interesting enough on their own to justify a new band. With Los Lobos member Pérez, and Froom's frequent production partner Blake, Latin Playboys was formed.

The group released two albums, Latin Playboys, in 1994, and Dose, in 1999. The songs "Manifold de Amour" and "Forever Night Shade Mary," both from the 1994 self-titled debut album, are featured on the soundtrack album for the 1995 film Desperado.

Los Sospechos

Original soundtrack featuring Daptone alumni, Menahan Street Band and Budos Band. "Postales is a cross-cultural love story shot in the streets of Cusco, Peru in which a postcard-selling street kid encounters an American Tourist girl, and follows her back to her hotel, setting off a chain of events that culminates with a stolen wallet, young love, and a family losing its home." The soundtrack provided by Brooklyn Afro Latin Funk outfits Menahan and Budos Band paints just as nice a picture as the film with sometimes gritty, slightly menacing production. The signature horn section drives the tracks and is easily one of the best Deep Latin Soul records from the last decade. Colemine Records, being known for their incredible 45 catalog of modern Afro Beat and Funk, released Postales as their first full length. If you are a fan of Truth & Soul and Daptone, this is for you. Recommended.

Later That Day

New Vinyl: $31.98 Buy

A crucial founding member of the Northern Cali-birthed Solesides / Quannum collective – which included DJ Shadow and Blackalicious, among others – and one half of the groundbreaking Latyrx duo (with Lateef The Truthspeaker), Lyrics Born opened a lot of ears and minds with his 2003 solo debut, Later That Day….
On this very open-minded and chiefly self-produced long player, Lyrics Born and his crew (including Joyo Velarde, on vocals; guitarist Tommy Guerrero and Germany’s funk masters Poets of Rhythm) bring it from the funk side, boasting a warm soul stew instead of colder drum machine-based beats and chopped samples.
As shown since his earliest days, the incredibly versatile Lyrics Born mixes his flow up depending on the track, from tongue-twistingly fast to conversationally mundane, and concepts are usually at the forefront – “Cold Call” is an amusing take on telemarketers, featuring Gift of Gab; “Before And After” is about friends growing apart; “Bad Dreams” is a groovy apocalyptic shaker. The infectious “Callin’ Out” rides the party train and “Stop Complaining” timeshares between funny and serious. “Do That There” features DJ Cut Chemist with liquid cuts that work around LB’s verbal floor routine.
And even after all of the other musical fireworks, the album’s crescendo most assuredly comes on track eleven, “The Last Trumpet”: operatically dramatic and powerful, with Lyrics Born and Latyrx-mate Lateef trading verses like “the only action / we can profit from / is movement towards / the positive / progressive thought / that’s rooted up / in consciousness” at breakneck pace.
Presented for its 15th Anniversary as a 2-LP set, on colored vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with in-depth liner notes by renowned author and journalist Jeff Chang (who also helped found the Solesides movement in the early ‘90s), plus an 11”x17” poster of the amazing cover art, this is a perfect way to re-introduce this classic to a new era of fans – present and future. THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

Emperor of Sand

New 12" Picture Disc: $26.99 Buy

Every living creature must face the will and judgment of time. Ancient Greeks personified time in the form of the titan Kronos, father of Zeus, and ancient Egyptians celebrated Heh as an abstraction of endless years. Famously, William Shakespeare lamented humanity's immutable fate as "time's subjects" in Henry IV. Mastodon ponders the nature of time on their eighth album Emperor of Sand. Threading together the myth of a man sentenced to death in a majestically malevolent desert, the Atlanta quartet conjures the grains of a musical and lyrical odyssey slipping quickly through a cosmic hourglass. Emperor of Sand is pressed on full color picture disc vinyl for Record Store Day 2018.

At United Sound, the band hit the zigzag riff at light speed and stayed there, framed by searing lead guitar and explosive drumming. ‘Borderline’ was a frantic jigsaw of power-chord jolts and sheet-like harmonies detonated again, at the Grande, for the live recording of the MC5's first LP, Kick Out the Jams.”

Ennio Morricone

ARROW RECORDS is proud to present the original soundtrack to Armando Crispino's nightmarish giallo thriller, Autopsy (Macchie solari). Previously unpublished on vinyl, this is one of legendary composer Ennio Morricone's most uncompromisingly experimental scores, which largely eschews the lounge jazz sounds often associated with the giallo genre in favour of dissonant improvisations, creepy atmospherics, jarring string arrangements and extraordinary vocalisations by Edda Dell'Orso. This limited marbled orange vinyl edition has been newly mastered from the original analogue tapes by James Plotkin and is presented on 180gram wax, housed inside a 350gsm sleeve. Featuring newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys and accompanying film notes by Lovely Jon.

New Vinyl: $34.99 Buy

Nazz's second album was to be a double album (as per Todd's wishes), called Fungo Bat. Recording began in Nov 1968 and completed in Spring (March) 1969. Due to band members indifference & management decisions, it was never released as such and Todd left the band to pursue a solo career. Todd's personal copies of the Fungo Bat Acetates were among the possessions lost in a fire at his home. The source of the recordings are from an individual in Austin, Texas, who once owned one of the only known copies of the acetates for Fungo Bat. It was three 12" acetates, with typed labels. The track listing on the acetates are just in order, 24 tracks - if this was indeed the album order, what is listed above is the logical place for album side breaks With Todd Rundgren-guitar; Robert "Stewkey" Antoni- vocals keyboards; Carson Van Osten- bass; THom Mooney0 drums.

The Pagans

The Pagans, one of America's first and most influential punk bands, was formed in 1977. Along with contemporaries like The Dead Boys and Pere Ubu, The Pagans and lead singer Mike Hudson literally wrote the book on punk rock. Releasing the now classic 'Street Where Nobody Lives' 7" on Drome Records in 1978, The Pagans went on to enjoy a successful thirty-plus year run. Recorded in 2016, this 7" marks the final record by The Pagans. Mike Hudson, the groups lead singer, passed away in late 2017. All artwork and audio was approved by Hudson prior to his passing, and this pink vinyl 7" package should serve as a fitting send off to a man and a band who had a great deal to do with punk rock history.

“The dazzling symphonic album he always threatened to produce” UNCUT 5/5
“A soulful symphonic masterpiece” ROLLING STONE

Originally released in Japan only on CD in 2002, Plush's Fed lives up to the cult-like adulation it has garnered ever since. A stunning symphony of Bacharach-inspired pop, Toussaint-swing andMelody Nelson-era-Gainsbourg, it’s an album bound together by Liam Hayes' maverick genius; an uncompromising Brian Wilson-esque quest for sonic perfection. Positively indulgent in every way, this sumptuous record has long deserved to be treated to a deluxe vinyl edition. Lovingly overseen by Hayes and recent collaborator Pat Sansone (Wilco/The Autumn Defense), it will finally be available on the format it should’ve always been, this Record Store Day 2018. Remastered and presented as a double LP - cut specially at 45rpm – it comes housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket with expanded artwork throughout.
 
Its expansive, singular vision infamously took years to realise, involving Earth Wind & Fire’s horn arranger (the legendary Tom Tom MMLXXXIV) amongst other elite personnel. Recorded with five different engineers (including Steve Albini and John McEntire), Hayes meticulously extracted every ounce of pop from each note. A long list of renowned studio ringers (including soul drummer Morris Jennings) and Chicago regulars (McEntire, Rizzo, Parker) among many others provide playing of demonstrably professional precision. As such, Hayes' complex, meandering melodies are rendered far more coherent and satisfying than they otherwise might have appeared, bringing his epic, anguished pop to a rarely seen level of perfection and depth. This unstinting dedication to the overarching vision was rewarded handsomely - artistically, at least.
 
However, as might have been expected, his deluxe approach resulted in a bill too steep for any American or European label to ultimately support. It has since seemed unlikely that it would see the light of day on either side of the Atlantic. Yet we were determined not to allow Hayes' lifetime achievement to go unnoticed or let music fans across the world miss out on one of the finest albums of this century.

A wide-eyed opus of stunning intensity, Fed oozes Hayes’ impeccable influences without ever becoming overwhelmed by them. Incredibly, it touches upon Blaxploitation soul, Boz Scaggs-soft-rock, hints of jazz and blues, timeless baroque and skewed pop. In one long minute, the stabbing, soulful "So Blind" moves through five different melodic segments; horns shift easily from haunting backdrop to explosive forefront, smoothly giving way to strings as Hayes' voice casts its bewitching spell. The ambitious soul of “Having It All” has been described as the diffident cousin of Marvin Gaye’s “Save The Children” whilst the breezy "Greyhound Bus Station" is pure 70s AM Gold, evoking the easy warmth of Jimmy Webb’s beloved Land’s End period. The sublime resignation of "No Education", a beautifully slow number that begins, "Never read a book in my life/ But I feel just fine" is post-rock ballad heaven. Arriving towards the end, the title track arrives as a majestic suite; moving from a horn-and-guitar-led instrumental via shifting melodies to Hayes’ compelling vocal bursts.  
 
An album of such brilliance, Fed can comfortably sit alongside such staggering statement pieces as David Bowie's Young Americans, Randy Newman's 12 Songs or Harry Nilsson's Nilsson Schmilsson. Indeed, for all the sprawling elements that went in - lengthy guitar builds, exploding horn sections, solemn strings, female backup chorus - it is a deeply personal and original record. Employing a distinct “more is more” aesthetic, he demonstrates remarkable restraint in producing an album of such intimacy. "My creation has drowned me," he memorably sings on languid opener "Whose Blues", yet he navigates the shifting styles and ideas with enviable ease.

The Rugged Nuggets x Smoke DZA x Fly Anakin x Blu

To celebrate Record Store Day 2018, Ohio-based Funk/Soul label Colemine Records, and the Brooklyn-based indie Hip-Hop label Coalmine Records, have teamed up for a limited-edition 7-inch release, “Head Above Water.” The double label venture boasts a new Soul jazz groove from the LA-based Funk/Soul collective, The Rugged Nuggets, B/W a reinterpretation of the track, flipped by Coalmine’s go-to producer, Small Professor, which features blistering verses from Smoke DZA, Fly Anakin and Blu, with cuts by the incomparable DJ Revolution.

Side A, as referenced on the Blue Note-flipped donuts as "COLE SIDE," effortlessly demonstrates why the The Rugged Nuggets are the newest collective to carry the torch of instrumental music. Emerging from the tight-knit Los Angeles Funk/Soul community, the 7-piece live band deliver a sound on “Head Above Water” that’s as inspired, realized and refreshing as the city landscape and culture that the musicians reside within.

Side B, as noted on the buoy-themed'donut as "COAL SIDE," represents a coast-to-coast Hip-Hop flight as DZA kicks things off by putting on for his hometown of Harlem in a major way. His verse is pure braggadocio-tinged flames and brimming with bars, among them his NY Jets-referencing closing line of “I’m Broadway Joe with my mink on drag.”

After Rev shreds the first hook chock full of quotables from Mos Def, Nas, M.O.P., 50 Cent, AZ and more, Mutant Academy’s Fly Anakin picks up right where DZA left off and delivers a relentless stream of rhymes. The VA native continues the stylish boasts when he spits, “They got a warrant for my style,” amidst a flurry of raps that demand repeated listens.

That same sentiment applies to Blu’s verse, which ends “Head Above Water” with thoughtful lyrics. The Los Angeles stalwart waxes poetic about trying to make enough bread to raise his daughter and “teach her how to bodyslam Sgt. Slaughter”—the perfect blend of wisdom and bravado that’s made Blu a legend.

This sure to be collector’s item, which boasts a double-sided insert designed by Joe Buck, is now available exclusively for Record Store Day. Both the music and partnership embody the spirit of RSD, which emanates feelings of community and soul over the bullshit…cause we’re all just tryin’ to rise up and keep our heads above water.

Patty Smyth and Scandal

Patty Smyth, both with her hit band Scandal and as a solo artist, is a true "New Wave Queen" and has always been, at heart, a rock and roll chick, and that's no truer today, now that she's back on the road.. If Smyth did nothing but marry New York punk poet Richard Hell (Television, Voidoids), then noted tennis punk and commentator John McEnroe, that would be amazing enough, but she's also earned both Oscar and Grammy nominations and recorded a series of hit singles and albums. Smyth was born in New York City, and had a very bohemian upbringing. Her mother managed legendary guitarist Link Wray and ran or owned several prominent Greenwich Village nightclubs, including the Gaslight, the Café Wha?. The group burst onto the scene in 1982 with a self-titled debut EP that turned out to be the best-selling EP in Columbia Records history, featuring the hit single, "Goodbye to You," a #1 MTV video. Scandal included the hits "Love's Got a Line on You" and "Win Some, Lose Some" on the group's first full-length album, "The Warrior", released in 1984, climbing into the Top 20 on the sales chart, eventually earning RIAA-certified platinum status. "The Warrior" remains popular to this day, featured on the radio station Flash FM in the video game Grand Theft Auto and in the third installment of Guitar Hero, Rocks the '80s.

The Calling EP

New Vinyl: $27.98 Buy

The Calling is a brand new EP by Iranian-born Dutch artist Sevdaliza. In a short period of time, Sevdaliza amassed millions of plays on Youtube and Spotify. Her debut album Ison, released in 2017, received rave reviews from around the globe

"I find the imminate connection of the emotional body to the mind and soul intensely beautiful. Whenever I find ease in the mind, my physical pains dissolve. De-hydration of the soul, means drying out the cracks of the joints. These pains are experienced as real. They reflect in each layer of our being. In order to have clearness in our head, we need to clear our hearts. The Calling is the soul telling me to return. Ground. She is the birth of all that is. When her voice cracks, it tenderly does like joints.

I believe there will come an end to where these painpoints point. By listening. I am, before I am mine or yours.” - Sevdaliza

The Calling is a Record Store Day Exclusive, an individually numbered limited edition vinyl EP, pressed on unique hand mixed moonstone vinyl.
