    Stock For The Upcoming Week! Part 2   
    Sunday, November 07 2010 @ 08:50 am CST
    Contributed by: Dave

    These LP's & CD's are now here. This list is part 2 of the new weeks arrivals.

    Black Angels- "Directions To See A Ghost" CD (Light In The Attic)
    Back in stock on CD. Their 2nd album.

    Handsome Furs- "Face Control" LP (Sub Pop)
    Back in stock on LP.

    Beirut- "Gulag Orkestar" LP (Ba Da Bing)
    Back in stock on LP.

    Jim Bryson & The Weakerthans- "Falcon Lake Incident" LP (Kelp)
    Brand new album from Jimbo with his pals the Weakerthans. This will go fast no doubt.

    Orgone- "Killion Vaults" CD+LPx2 (Ubiquity)
    Stylin' lowdown modern day funk from Orgone.

    Ox- "Burnout" LP+MP3 (Ox)
    Canadian folk/country/rock from Sudbury Ont. Like Bonnie Billy rolled into the Velvets and sprinkled with Springsteen.

    Vaselines- "Sex With An Ex" LP (Sub Pop)
    The Vaselines broke up in 1989 just after the release of their only album, Dum Dum. The split was partly due to the members Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee splitting as a couple, partly down to not seeing a place for themselves in the music industry. Despite a brief reunion shortly after their demise to play a couple shows in support of Nirvana (Kurt Cobain was rather famously a huge fan of the band), the split seemed very final. Jump ahead almost 20 years to 1998 and a call from Sub Pop. The label, which had reissued the band’s work in 1992 with The Way of the Vaselines: A Complete History, was throwing itself a huge party for its 20th anniversary and wanted the Vaselines to appear. Kelly and McKee decided the time was right to re-form. The Sub Pop show and those they did surrounding it were quite successful, and no doubt a light bulb went off at some point and they decided to do an album. After a year of writing songs and a couple weeks of recording, the record fans of the band never thought would appear, appeared. With backing from Stevie Jackson and Bob Kildea of Belle & Sebastian and production from old cohort Jamie Watson, the album certainly sounds like a Vaselines record. Slightly cleaned up but still very simple and direct, Sex with an X is filled with wryly humorous tunes that sport extremely catchy singalong choruses. There may be less danger, drugs, and silly sex in the sound and lyrics, but that’s probably to be expected.

    Andrew Bird- "Noble Beast" LP (Fat Possum)
    Back in stock on LP.

    Andrew Bird- "Armchair Apocrypha" LP (Fat Possum)
    Back in stock on LP.

    Women- "Public Strain" LP (Flemish Eye)
    Latest from odd Calgary band. No one knows how to describe it really, but thumbs up from all who've heard it. Just the right amount of familiarity & adventure.

    Antony & The Johnsons- "Swanlights" CD+LP (Secretly Canadian)
    wanlights, the fourth full-length by Antony and the Johnsons, reveals that 2009's The Crying Light was a stepping stone that furthered his sophistication as a songwriter, arranger, and singer. While that album's tunes about acceptance, death, transformation, and loss were added to immeasurably by Nico Muhly's gorgeous string arrangements, Swanlights employs the same band, this time augmented by a chamber orchestra.

    Antony & The Johnsons- "Thank You For Your Love" 12" (Secretly Canadian)
    Latest single on clear vinyl.

    Dimmu Borgir- "Abrahadabra" LPx2 (Nuclear Blast)
    Brand new release on double vinyl. Budget priced too!

    Tom Waits- "Alice" LP (Anti)
    Vinyl Restock.

    Squarepusher presents Shobaleader One- "d'Demonstrator" CD+LPx2 (Warp)
    Q & A with Squarepusher about Shobaleader One.
    1. What is Shobaleader One?
    Shobaleader One is my band. Last summer a bunch of kids got in contact with me. They were talking about forming an ensemble, which I thought was a ridiculous idea but I was impressed by their perseverance so we met up. Their idea was that they wanted the 'fantasy group' I had written about in connection with 'Just A Souvenir' to become a real entity that would record and tour. So we had a go at doing some recording and the story so far is documented on this record.
    2. Who is in the band?
    Basically a bunch of people who you may or may not have heard of from other bands and projects. Part of their idea is that this music is a completely clean break with whatever they've done in the past so I'm not allowed to mention any names. I can tell you that they are pretty frightening players.

    Unintended- "S/T" CD (Blue Fog)
    Project from a few years back led by Eric's Trip mainman Rick White with guests the Sadies & Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo. Absolutely great mindbending blend of psyche/rock/folk. A must have if you like any of these artists.

    Explosions In The Sky- "The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place" LPx2 (Temporary Residence)
    Restock on vinyl.

    Explosions In The Sky- "Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Die..." LPx2 (Temporary Residence)
    Restock on vinyl.

    Endless Boogie- "Full House Head" LPx2 (No Quarter)
    Latest release from psyche/blues jam band. Double LP in gatefold sleeve.

    Oval- "O" CD+LPx2 (Thrill Jockey)
    Glitchy electronic acts brand new album. Always pushing the boundaries of experimental electronic pop (term pop being used loosely). LP has download for a bunch of bonus music.

    Sufjan Stevens- "Age Of Adz" CD+LP coming later this week (Asthmatic Kitty)
    Brand new full length studio album for SS. Vinyl coming very soon!

    Flying Lotus- "1983" LP (Warp)
    Back in stock on vinyl. Lots of other FL vinyl in stock now as well.

    Red Giant- "Dysfunctional Majesty" CD (Small Stone)
    This statement may be acknowledged as fact by only a small and select contingent of discerning musical enthusiasts, but no band short of perhaps West Virginia's Karma to Burn exudes a greater sense of mystique in conjunction with its uniquely recognizable, slightly skewed stoner metal aesthetic than Cleveland, OH's enigmatic Red Giant. Notoriously elusive and antisocial, the group's members have made a habit of emerging out of apparent hibernation every half-decade or so, always armed with a new collection of labyrinthine twin-guitar overtures as bruising as they are scintillating. And because they are a guitar band's guitar band by definition -- even though frontman Alex Perekrest is one hell of a singer -- it's no wonder that Red Giant prefer to mask their identities behind the grim iron helmet of "the Cosmic Welder," a Galactus-like mascot that, in one guise or another, has graced all of their album covers. In the case of their fourth full-length, 2010's Dysfunctional Majesty, said mascot stands triumphant over a throng of submissive lovelies in direct emulation of Kiss' classic Love Gun artwork, but all signs of lighthearted wit or wanting to "rock and roll all night and party every day" end right there, because when the needle hits the groove, Red Giant are all business -- heavy, indomitable business.

    Mars Volta- "Octahedron" LPx2 (RPL)
    Back in stock on vinyl after lengthy absence.

    Yeasayer- "O.N.E." 12" (Secretly Canadian)
    Back in stock.

    Black Sabbath- "S/T" LP (Nems)
    Their debut album on 180 gram vinyl.

    Cream- "Disraeli Gears" LP (Polydor)
    180 gram reissue on vinyl. Cream teamed up with producer Felix Pappalardi for their second album, Disraeli Gears, a move that helped push the power trio toward psychedelia and also helped give the album a thematic coherence missing from the debut. This, of course, means that Cream get further away from the pure blues improvisatory troupe they were intended to be, but it does get them to be who they truly are: a massive, innovative power trio. The blues still courses throughout Disraeli Gears — the swirling kaleidoscopic "Strange Brew" is built upon a riff lifted from Albert King — but it's filtered into saturated colors, as it is on "Sunshine of Your Love," or it's slowed down and blurred out, as it is on the ominous murk of "Tales of Brave Ulysses." It's a pure psychedelic move that's spurred along by Jack Bruce's flourishing collaboration with Pete Brown. Together, this pair steers the album away from recycled blues-rock and toward its eccentric British core, for with the fuzzy freakout "Swlabr," the music hall flourishes of "Dance the Night Away," the swinging "Take It Back," and of course, the schoolboy singalong "Mother's Lament," this is a very British record. Even so, this crossed the ocean and also became a major hit in America, because regardless of how whimsical certain segments are, Cream are still a heavy rock trio and Disraeli Gears is a quintessential heavy rock album of the '60s. Yes, its psychedelic trappings tie it forever to 1967, but the imagination of the arrangements, the strength of the compositions, and especially the force of the musicianship make this album transcend its time as well.

    Black Keys- "Brothers" LPx2 (Nonesuch)
    Back in stock. Double LP + CD with poster.

    My Morning Jacket- "Evil Urges" LPx2 (ATO)
    Back in stock on double LP.

    Suicidal Tendencies- "How Will I Laugh...." CD (Sony)
    cidal Tendencies regrouped successfully for one of its best efforts, How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today. The band's thrashy fusion of its hardcore roots with speed metal was fully developed by this point, and Mike Muir's social commentary and self-analysis were as ragingly compelling and by turns amusing as ever. Highlights include "Trip at the Brain," "One Too Many Times," and the title track.

    Yeah Yeah Yeahs- "It's Blitz" LP (Interscope)
    This ones always in & out of here. Back again on LP.

    Grinderman- "2" CD+LP (Anti)
    Brand new album from Nick Cave and his grinderman side project. Available in both CD (deluxe version) & LP formats. LP version comes with poster and bonus CD included.

    Mavis Staples- "We'll Never Turn Back" CD (Anti)
    2007 release from this amazing soul/blues singer. This album finds her produced and backed by Ry Cooder & band. Simply a great album on many levels.

    Dead Kennedys- "Nazi Punks Fuck Off!" 7" (AT)
    Still kicking around on 7" vinyl. Includes arm band.

    Johnny Winter- "Nothin' But The Blues" CD (Blue Sky)
    After a long period making rock records, Winter fronts the Muddy Waters band (with Waters singing) on this Chicago blues workout. He sounds happier than ever before.

    Conan O'Brien- "And They Call Me Mad" 7" (Third Man)
    Easily the most hilarious entry into the Third Man catalog yet, this Green Series ''instructional'' record features Harvard graduate/occasional late night television host Conan O'Brien at his finest. The A-side is Conan's off-the-cuff reinterpretation of the story of Frankenstein's monster and provides a bucketful of belly-laughs. The flip finds Jack White getting involved in the fun and features, in no particular order: Conan's impersonation of the rapper Ludacris, his admission that he hates jokes and White's comical list of nicknames new/old/odd for O'Brien. Guffaws guaranteed!

    Articles Of Faith- "New Normal Catastrophe" 12" (Dischord)
    The classic lineup of early-’80s Chicago punk pioneers ARTICLES OF FAITH have recorded together and are playing two live shows for the first time in 25 years! This five-track 12-inch EP is blazing fast and intelligent hardcore à la the band’s classic 'What We Want Is Free EP' (1982) and 'Give ThanksLP (1984). These songs show the members' continuing political involvement and enduring musical chops. This lineup had not written or recorded together since 1985's 'In This Life' LP. 'New Normal Catastrophe' was mixed by J. Robbins (of Jawbox and Report Suspicious Activity - the latter a collaboration between Robbins and Articles of Faith's Vic Bondi) in Baltimore.

    Jello Biafra & DOA- "Last Scream Of The Dying Neighbours" CD (AT)
    Restock on CD.

    Boards Of Canada- "Campfire Headphase" CD (Warp)
    Restock. Popular electronic act from Scotland.

    Restock. Popular electronic act from Scotland.

    Ray Lamontagne- "Gossip In The Grain" LPx2 (BMG)
    Ray's 3rd album from 2008. Back on double LP.

    Forgotten Rebels- "This Ain't Hollywood" LP (Star)
    Back in stock on vinyl for first time in almost a decade. A legendary Canadian punk rock album. Contains "Surfin' On Heroin" & "Eve Of Destruction". A rare find!

    3 Inches Of Blood- "Here Waits Thy Doom" LP (Century Media)
    The biggest defenders of traditional Heavy Metal are releasing their most punishing, epic and mighty album to date! This LP is green colored, hand numbered to 666 copies. Limited edition CD is also in stock.

    Legendary Pink Dots- "Seconds Late For The Brighton Line" LPx2 + CD (Roir)
    Now here on vinyl! Unlike most acts of their vintage, The Legendary Pink Dots look forward. After more than 25 years, they continue to make compelling new music that is demanded by fans and maintains the high level of quality that set their careers in motion. Led by singer/songwriter Edward Ka-Spel and keyboardist/songwriter Phil “Silverman” Knight, the band continues to create their singular brand of modern psychedelia. Edward Ka-Spel’s lyrics breathe with a sagacity and cleverness only found in rock’s greatest writers. Their new album “Seconds Late For The Brighton Line” finds the band in familiar territory; pulsing Krautrock, dark and sinister pop and epic post-industrial soundscapes. The album invites the listener to put on head phones, close their eyes and embark on a technicolor journey. Stand out tracks include the epic electronic groove of “Russian Roulette”, the pretty naivete of “Someday” and the chilling goth-pop of “Endless Time.” The recent departure of long-time band members Niels Van Hoorn & Martijn De Kleer has left The Legendary Pink Dots to operate as a quartet. The new crew will embark on an extensive North American tour this Fall that celebrates the band’s 30th Anniversary.

    Steve Earle- "Townes" LPx2 (New West)
    Back in stock after a lengthy absence. Steve pays homage to his main inspiration Townes Van Zandt.

    Grave Digger- "The Clans Will Rise Again" CD (Napalm)
    Highly anticipated new album from German heavy metal legends. With the mere first notes of the introduction, fans of Grave Digger will unequivocally know they have returned to the Scottish Highlands! The majestic sound of bagpipes stylistically establishes the direction of the German power metal institution's latest album. "The Clans Will Rise Again" is a formidable and compact work, in which no one song outdoes another. Grave Digger's newest addition, guitarist Axel Ritt, rejuvenates the band revolving around legendary frontman and scene grandee Chris Boltendahl, and provides them with a fresh and energy-laden springboard from which to launch their latest attack. Scotland provides Grave Digger with plenty of lyrical inspiration, ranging from its sheer mystique to its proud people. "The Clans Will Rise Again" presents a band that has managed to mark their 30th anniversary with yet another musical milestone. Strictly limited first pressing digipack includes bonus track! Recommended for fans of HAMMERFALL, ‘80s HELLOWEEN, MANOWAR, and RUNNING WILD.

    Tony Joe White- "The Shine" CD (Red Ink)
    The 21st century saw Tony Joe White resume his recording and performing career, and experience a resurgence of critical interest in his older music as well. Since 2002, "the Swamp Fox" has recorded sporadically for his own Swamp imprint, and also had his back catalog remastered and reissued. Earlier in 2010, Rhino Handmade made available That On the Road Look, a previously unreleased live date. The Shine is a (mostly) low-key, basic affair. White wrote or co-wrote everything here with his wife, Leann. The band is a quintet: White plays guitars and harmonica with drummer Jack Bruno, cellist John Catchings, bassist George Hawkins, and Tyson Rogers on piano, organ, and Wurlitzer. The sound is warm and raw; the album feels like it was cut mostly live from the floor (with guitar and vocal overdubs added) and it's full of natural atmospherics. White's acoustic nylon-string guitar is prevalent, sometimes more so than his quavering, downright spooky baritone. His electric six-string work paints the backdrop. The only real exceptions are the downright rocker "Strange Night," where White displays everything that Mark Knopfler copped from his style inside of five minutes. The levels feel off, overloaded; the vocals come from the backdrop as the guitars and drums smoulder, smoke, and bubble. A broken love song, everything in it bleeds into everything else: it expresses pain as an immediate, crushing experience; it evokes everything from anger to tenderness. "Something to Soften the Blow" is an electric country waltz, sad, beautiful, and lonely. The protagonist is desperate for comfort in seeking a one-night stand from what is perhaps a sympathetic other. White somehow manages to pull off his plea without coming off as pathetic; he wears his brokenness with dignity. "Season Man" is a classic White minor-key narrative about a drifter. "Ain't Doing Nobody No Good" is a droning swamp blues, full of dread and sinister purpose. "Long Way from the River" is a backbeat-driven deeply atmospheric folk song that contains a classic White line: "When you're running with the swamp, the rain is gonna fall." "Roll Train Toll" is pure Delta-style folk-blues, played solo on a steel-string acoustic guitar; it's loaded with a quiet yet ever-present menace ready to break the surface, though it never does, and is all the more effective as a result. Ultimately, The Shine is White's most consistent and gratifying offering since he began recording again.

    Limited edition 180 gram red and green double gatefold vinyl edition - llmited edition of 1000 copies worldwide! 1982 concert by Hawkwind, recorded over both nights of the winter 1982 tour, at London's Hammersmith Odeon. The performances featured guest slots from Michaeil Moorcock and Lemmy. Includes excellent live versions of 'Coded Languages', 'Solitary Mind Games', and best of all, a new wavey 'Waiting for Tomorrow' slipping in alongside traditional favorites 'Ejection', 'Magnu', and a maniacally churning 'Brainstorm'.

    Brand new!

    Back in stock. Includes the "Sun Giant" 12".

    No Age- "Everything In Between" LP+CD (Sub Pop)
    Los Angeles experimental lo-fi drum-and-guitar duo No Age are Dean Spunt and Randy Randall, ex-members of hardcore band Wives. Through assorted indie labels, No Age released limited runs of vinyl-only EPs before collecting many of those tracks for the singles collection Weirdo Rippers, issued by U.K. label FatCat in summer 2007. The record's cover pays respect to the Smell, a venue/art space they felt was partially responsible for the livelihood of both No Age and Wives. The duo is also known for its videos, performance art, and visual art, as well as curating an exhibition that included works by Devendra Banhart and others. The band moved to Sub Pop in 2008 and released its full-fledged debut album Nouns. The group's sophomore effort, Everything in Between, followed in 2010. LP is limited edition with giant booklet.

    Devendra Banhart- "Cripple Crow" LPx2 (XL)

    Now part of the Matador budget line. Comes with download.

    Neil Young- "Le Noise" LPx2 (Warner)

    Budos Band- "III" CD (Dapking)
    After two well-received full-lengths and an EP, Staten Island's Budos Band return with III in 2010. The group's first two recordings walked a loose tightrope line between the modern jazzed-up Afro-beat sound of Antibalas and the soulful good-time funk groove of Sugarman 3. It's also true that while they fit the Daptone label's groove-centric aesthetic, III reveals a new direction, offering the view that they are also something other. This 11-song set, recorded in 48 hours, offers a darker, more spacious tinge. Elements of psychedelic, Middle Eastern, and even Latin sounds have entered their mix, without sacrificing their dance party cachet.

    The Gaslight Anthem- "The 59 Sound: LP (Side One/Dummy)
    In 1988, Jon Bon Jovi was being interviewed by a reporter for Spin Magazine when he was asked if he was a fan of Bruce Springsteen. Bon Jovi replied "In New Jersey, if you don't like Springsteen they raise your taxes." Listening to the Gaslight Anthem's second full-length album The '59 Sound, it's pretty clear that leader Brian Fallon doesn't have to worry much about his tax bill in the Garden State. Hailing from New Brunswick, NJ, the Gaslight Anthem are that rare punk band that displays a strong and unmistakable Springsteen influence, and while Fallon's vocal resemblance to the Boss is clearly coincidental (he has more than a bit of Bruce's throaty gravity without the grit), the boys-and-girls-on-the-backstreets tone of his lyrics is not, especially when stray fragments from Springsteen's lyrics pop up in Fallon's songs (cue up "Meet Me by the River's Edge" and "High Lonesome" for evidence). If Fallon often comes off as a youthful Springsteen wannabe on The '59 Sound, he also happens to be pretty good at it; the force and sincerity of his songs roll over the occasional clunky spots, and the band brings this music across with a strength and urgency that suggests a heartland rock version of Social Distortion, with Alex Rosamila's guitars and Benny Horowitz's drumming brimming with fire and energy. (AMG)

    Tricky- "Mixed Race" LP (Domino)
    Recorded in Paris, where Tricky has been residing for the past two years, Mixed Race is his most passionate album to date. Musically his production work takes influences from UK, Jamaican, US, North African and French music. He sets out on his music mantra with the album’s lead off track, “Every Day,” and then proceeds through a lyrical journey with temptation, reflection, mischief and misbehavior.
    The album was produced by Tricky and features as always an array of talented singers and collaborators. Mixed Race introduces Irish-Italian Frankey Riley, as well as guest appearances from Jamaican singer Terry Lynn, Primal Scream front man Bobby Gillespie, lutist/vocalist Hakim Hamadouche, London-based vocalist Blackman and Tricky’s brother Marlon Thaws, who is the thirteenth of his fourteen siblings.

    The Walkmen- "Lisbon" CD+LP (Fat Possum)
    Restock.

    Clinic- "Bubblegum" CD (Domino)
    Brand new release!

    Antlers- "Hospice" LP (Antlers)
    On Hospice, Brooklyn’s the Antlers deliver a heartbreaking concept album from the perspective of two central characters: an abusive bone cancer patient on her hospital death bed and a committed nurse who becomes attached and falls deeply in love, despite impending tragedy. Written over the course of two years by core member Peter Silberman and then enhanced with additional tracks by Darby Cicci, Michael Lerner, Justin Stivers, and Sharon Van Etten, it’s a woe-heavy record that could easily be crushed by its own weight, except for the fact that it’s delivered with such ease. The narrative (completely written out in the liners) is gripping -- full of novelesque prose, reminiscent of Lou Reed’s Berlin -- and the musical accompaniment complements Silberman’s lyrics perfectly. Music box melodies are sung in a wobbly falsetto over acoustic guitar and piano, as tinges of Radiohead (Amnesiac era) electro production add accent, waiting until the perfect moment to swell up to monumental crescendos full of keyboards, accordions, harmonicas, harps, and trumpets. Arcade Fire are an overt touchstone, as are Neutral Milk Hotel.

    The Business- "Complete Singles" CD (Anagram)
    Back in stock.

    The Knife- "Silent Shout: LPx2 (Mute)
    The remoteness of the Knife (aka Olof and Karin Dreijer) and the chilliness of their music makes it easy to conjure up images of the duo working in a studio that resembles the Fortress of Solitude, playing instruments carved out of ice. But if the vibrant pop of Deep Cuts was like the northern lights, then Silent Shout is a sunless, vast expanse of tundra. A much darker, more ambitious set of songs than the Knife's previous work, the album finds the Dreijers stretching their sonics and downplaying the overt poppiness of Deep Cuts and The Knife. But, while Silent Shout isn't as whimsical or immediate as the Knife has been in the past, it's just as inventive, if not more so.

    Brian Eno- "Here Come The Warm Jets" CD (EG Records)
    His first solo album after leaving Roxy Music. Includes the legendary "Baby's On Fire".

    Brandon Flowers- "Flamingo" LP (Island)
    Earlier this year, the Killers decided to take some time off - but not brandon Flowers. "I don't blame them for taking a break," says the singer, 27. "But I'm always writing, and I wanted to chase these songs. I also have a fear that if I stop for a year, it might mess me up." Working mostly with Madonna producer Stuart Price and Daniel Lanois in tandem (Brendan O'Brien also produced a few cuts), Flowers has made a solo set that walks a line between the Killers New Wave rock and a more rootsy sound. Named after Flamingo Road, an off-strip Vegas street that Flowers calls his "Penny Lane," the LP features tunes about his spiritual beliefs ("Playing With Fire"), regret ("Hard Enough," with Jenny Lewis) and the seedy side of his hometown ("Welcome to Fabolous Las Vegas"). He'll support the disc with a tour in the fall and reconnect with the Killers in early 2011. "I seem to be at the age where you peak, and it freaks me out," he says. "I don't want to miss my chance." Inextricably tied to Vegas in both showmanship and ideology, Flamingo is a bombastic 10-track collection of stadium-ready songs that runs the gamut from expert pop executions and forlorn electro dirges to gospel tunes and even blues-tinged rock (read: pedal steel, and plenty of it). Soundgarden- "Telephantas" LPx3 (A&M)
    Latest anthology with lot's of oddities and things appearing on vinyl for the 1st time.

    Johnny Winter- "Saint & Sinners" CD (CBS)
    Johnny Winter's sixth Columbia album was also his second since his comeback from drug addiction. Its predecessor, Still Alive and Well, had been his highest charting effort. Saints & Sinners includes '50s rock & roll oldies like Chuck Berry's "Thirty Days," Larry Williams' "Bony Moronie," and Leiber & Stoller's "Riot in Cell Block #9," recent covers like the Rolling Stones' "Stray Cat Blues," and a couple of originals. (Van Morrison completists should note that the album also contains Winter's cover of Morrison's "Feedback on Highway 101," a typical bluesy groove song that Morrison recorded for his 1973 Hard Nose the Highway album but dropped. Winter's is the only released recording of the song.) Abetted by the members of the old Johnny Winter Band -- Rick Derringer, Randy Jo Hobbs, and Richard Hughes -- plus his brother Edgar Winter and Dan Hartman, Winter produced forceful hard rock focused on his searing lead guitar runs and rough-edged voice.

    Johnny Winter- "Johnny Winter And/And Live" CDx2 (BGO)
    After two late-'60s albums on Columbia, Johnny Winter hit his stride in 1970 working with Rick Derringer and the McCoys, now recruited as his sidemen and collaborators (and proving with just about every note here how far they'd gotten past "Hang on Sloopy"). In place of the bluesy focus on his first two albums, Winter extended himself into more of a rock-oriented mode here, in both his singing and his selection of material. This was hard rock with a blues edge, and had a certain commercial smoothness lacking in his earlier work. Derringer's presence on guitar and as a songwriter saw to it that Winter's blues virtuosity was balanced by perfectly placed guitar hooks, and the two guitarists complemented each other perfectly throughout as well. There wasn't a weak moment anywhere on the record, and if Johnny Winter And wasn't a huge commercial success, it was mostly because of the huge amount of competition at the time from other, equally inspired players, that kept numbers like the Winter originals "Prodigal Son" and "Guess I'll Go Away" as well as Derringer co-authored pieces such as "Look Up" from having the impact they should have had on FM radio.
    In its time, this was an enormously popular live album, especially among high-school kids just starting to discover blues-rock in the early '70s. Derived from live performances at the Fillmore East and at Pirate's World in Dania, FL, it is probably, in fairness, the best representation of Johnny Winter's sound from his prime years that one is likely to find -- the pity is that it's only about 40 minutes long, and is weighted very heavily toward Winter's covers of well-known rock & roll numbers. Considering that it was recorded along a tour promoting the Johnny Winter And album, one would expect that the band would have done a considerable number of tracks from that record, none of which are represented here. The highlights are of considerable value, however, including a searing rendition of the Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash" sandwiched between some much older repertory ("Great Balls of Fire," "Long Tall Sally," "Johnny B. Goode," etc.). Except for the opener, "Good Morning Little School Girl," on which Winter and the band try to show how many notes they can hit as quickly as they can, the players generally try for something a little more subtle and interesting, and one wishes that more of what they did had used the slow blues groove they settle into on "It's My Own Fault." Their version of "Great Balls of Fire" has some of that, mostly by default (no one did the song faster than Jerry Lee Lewis anyway), and also enough energy so one doesn't even "miss" the piano one usually expects somewhere in the song; "Long Tall Sally," by contrast, kicks in on overdrive and takes off from there. But for all of the musical virtues (and obvious joy) that Winter and company bring to those standards, the most interesting cuts here are "It's My Own Fault" and Winter's own "Mean Town Blues," and one wishes that there were more such tracks here. In that regard, it might be worthwhile for someone at Sony/Legacy to do a serious vault search and see if there are surviving tapes of any other numbers recorded from the two shows (and was it just two?) that were recorded for this album (This was just done by the way).

    Jello Biafra & NoMeansNo- "The Sky Is Falling And I Want My Mommy" CD+LP (AT)
    Recently reissued on vinyl.

    Weezer- "Hurley" LP+CD (Epitaph)
    Weezer return to their indie rock roots on Hurley, their first release on Epitaph and the start of a new chapter in the band’s storied career. In many ways, Weezer have always been the unlikeliest of pop bands, earning major radio and video play for leftfield singles like 'Undone' and 'Buddy Holly,' songs that hardly seem calculated to become radio hits. It is exactly this "uncalculated" quality that the band returns to on their eighth album. Hurley is as warm and embracing as the glowing smile on actor Jorge Garcia’s face that graces the cover, as ragged and endearing as fan favorite Pinkerton, as bold and hooky and open as 'Pork and Beans.' And as if that wasn’t confusing enough, Rivers Cuomo cowrites with Ryan Adams and legendary Elvis Presley writer Mac Davis ('In the Ghetto'). In other words, Hurley is in the classic tradition of the best Weezer albums, goofy and confessional and geeky and hugely singalong. Includes slipcase CD of full album.

    Mavis Staples- "You Are Not Alone" CD +LPx2 (Anti)
    Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and soul/gospel legend Mavis Staples delivers more wall-to-wall joy on her triumphant new Anti- album, You Are Not Alone (September 14), than any other release you’re likely to hear this year. Produced by fellow Chicagoan Jeff Tweedy at Wilco’s studio The Loft, the intimate and textured production showcases the iconic singer at her most powerful and fervent. You Are Not Alone mixes traditional gospel numbers with two new songs written for Mavis by Tweedy, plus her unique interpretations of songs by Pops Staples, Randy Newman, Allen Toussaint, John Fogerty, Rev. Gary Davis and Little Milton. Double vinyl version contains bonus CD included.

    Ronnie Hayward- "Tail Shaking" CD (El Toro)
    Calgary Rockabilly from the Spanish label El Toro.

    Street Dogs- "S/T" LP (Hellcat)
    Mike McColgan - frontman, singer and songwriter for Boston’s beloved punk rock quintet Street Dogs - has lived the life that other bands just sing about. As the founding frontman of Dropkick Murphys, McColgan helped bring his experiences as a Gulf War combat veteran to the uncompromising, working class sound that launched that band. But in 1998, following a family tradition, McColgan left the band and music to become a Boston firefighter. Four years later, he began jamming on nights off with some old friends from the Boston punk scene; he found he needed the voice that only fronting a band could give him, and the Street Dogs were born. Now Street Dogs are ready to unleash their self-titled fifth album, the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2008 Hellcat debut State of Grace, which critics called "a raucous and purposeful working man's ride" (Dallas Morning News) with "the kind of political streak rarely heard since the Clash" (Cleveland Scene).

    Procol Harum- "Broken Barricades" CD (Salvo)
    Procol Harum squeezed the recording of their fifth album 'Broken Barricades' in between tours, as was their custom. On its release in 1971, 'Broken Barricades' further enhanced Procol's standing. Three tracks were co-written by guitarist Robin Trower, who demonstrated his frustration with the restrictions placed on his playing by the Procol sound. With Trower on fine form, writing the album's obvious choice for a single, 'Poor Mohammed', and playing some of the best guitar of his career, 'Broken Barricades' is hard rock and roll, with an accent of finely-wrought musical heaviness, occasional brass adding inflection to the group's exceptional playing. 'Broken Barricades' is also Keith Reid writing searingly direct words, Gary Brooker providing appropriately powerhouse music, singing most soulfully, and pumping his piano with abandon and BJ Wilson and Chris Copping laying down a rhythm that is always interesting and accessible. This edition adds 4 bonus tracks.

    Devil's Brigade- "S/T" CD+LP (Hellcat)
    Devil’s Brigade are an all-star punk group featuring Matt Freeman and Tim Armstrong of Rancid and DJ Bonebrake, drummer of X and the Knitters. Rancid fans have always cherished Matt’s deep punk growl on his featured songs on Rancid albums, and now Devil’s Brigade brings his singing, rockabilly-inspired bass slap, and classic punk songwriting to the fore. With Tim Armstrong’s Duane Eddy lead guitar and the rock-steady rhythm of DJ Bonebrake, Devil’s Brigade offers up twelve songs that mix equal parts Johnny Cash, the Pogues, and Sun rockabilly, in a combustible cocktail that will have fans slamming on this fall’s tour with the Street Dogs. On tracks like 'Bridge of Gold' with vocals by Armstrong, the band stretches out, adding mandolin and banjo to their sound, while 'Ride Harley Ride' features some slinky vibraphone. Guest vocals from Rancid's Lars Frederiksen.

    Sword- "Warp Riders" LPx2 (Kemado)
    Restock on new double LP from this hard rockin' combo. CD here as well.

    Refused- "The Shape Of Punk To Come" CD+LP deluxe edition (Epitaph)
    Celebrating one of the most influential hardcore albums of its decade, this Deluxe Edition re-release of Refused's 1998 record The Shape Of Punk To Come brings together the original 12-track genre-bending disc with a previously unreleased live album. Also included is a DVD featuring guitarist Kristofer Steen's 2006 documentary Refused Are Fucking Dead, as well as a host of live performances and videos from the final throws of the band's seven-year career.

    Nine Inch Nails- "The Downward Spiral" LPx2 (Nothing)
    Restock of double LP.

    Cream- "Disraeli Gears" LP (Polydor)
    180 gram reissue on vinyl. Cream teamed up with producer Felix Pappalardi for their second album, Disraeli Gears, a move that helped push the power trio toward psychedelia and also helped give the album a thematic coherence missing from the debut. This, of course, means that Cream get further away from the pure blues improvisatory troupe they were intended to be, but it does get them to be who they truly are: a massive, innovative power trio. The blues still courses throughout Disraeli Gears — the swirling kaleidoscopic "Strange Brew" is built upon a riff lifted from Albert King — but it's filtered into saturated colors, as it is on "Sunshine of Your Love," or it's slowed down and blurred out, as it is on the ominous murk of "Tales of Brave Ulysses." It's a pure psychedelic move that's spurred along by Jack Bruce's flourishing collaboration with Pete Brown. Together, this pair steers the album away from recycled blues-rock and toward its eccentric British core, for with the fuzzy freakout "Swlabr," the music hall flourishes of "Dance the Night Away," the swinging "Take It Back," and of course, the schoolboy singalong "Mother's Lament," this is a very British record. Even so, this crossed the ocean and also became a major hit in America, because regardless of how whimsical certain segments are, Cream are still a heavy rock trio and Disraeli Gears is a quintessential heavy rock album of the '60s. Yes, its psychedelic trappings tie it forever to 1967, but the imagination of the arrangements, the strength of the compositions, and especially the force of the musicianship make this album transcend its time as well.

    Black Lips- S/T" LP (Bomp)
    Colored vinyl version of Black Lips first LP from 2003. Listen to the first couple of cuts from the Black Lips' self-titled debut album and it sounds like you've uncovered yet another nuevo-garage rock band with an extra shot of punk rock attitude. All well and good, but let the album sink in and you realize these kids have a bit more up their sleeves -- the tres-wasted psychedelia of "Freakout," the creepy blues crawl of "Stone Cold" and "Down and Out," and the free-form dementia of "You're Dumb" prove these guys have been absorbing their influences from any number of less than wholesome sources. A bit like the Dwarves pre-Blood Guts & Pussy, the Black Lips are looking for something dirty, dangerous, and just plain unhealthy beneath the energetic veneer of garage punk, and on this album they don't have much trouble finding it. While the performances are often ragged to the point of near collapse, that seems to be the point much of the time, and the addled wail of singer Cole Alexander is a fine mouthpiece for this journey through the gutters of your mind. Savage and not for the squeamish, but cool stuff for folks who like their rhythm hooch in a dirty glass.

    John Mayall- "Blues From Laurel Canyon" LP (Decca)
    Mayall's first post-Bluesbreakers album saw the man returning to his roots after the jazz/blues fusion that was Bare Wires. Blues from Laurel Canyon is a blues album, through and through. Testimony to this is the fact that there's a guitar solo only 50 seconds into the opening track. Indeed, Mayall dispersed the entire brass section for Blues from Laurel Canyon, and instead chose the solid but relatively limited backing of Mick Taylor (guitar), Colin Allen (drums), and Stephen Thompson (bass). Instantly, it is apparent that John Mayall hasn't lost his touch with the blues. "Vacation," the album's opener, reminds one exactly why this artist is so celebrated for his songwriting ability. The staggering Mick Taylor (here still in his teens) truly proves his worth as a blues guitarist, while Steve Thompson (also in his late teens) works superbly with one of the genre's most interesting drummers, Colin Allen. Blues from Laurel Canyon is as unerring as Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton, and equally as musically interesting. Not only is this one of the finest John Mayall albums, it is also a highlight in the blues genus.

    Jeff Beck- "Performing This Week - Live At Ronnie Scott's" LPx2 (Eagle Rock)
    180 gram release of Jeff's popular live album from 2009 on vinyl.

    Jeff Beck- "Emotion & Commotion" LP (Atco)
    When Jeff Beck last ventured into the studio it was to cut 2003’s Jeff, a deliberately modernist album steeped in electronica, to which 2010’s Emotion & Commotion almost feels like a refutation. Working with producers Steve Lipson and Trevor Horn, Beck has created an old-fashioned blues-rock-cum-prog record, balancing the sweeping vistas of a 64-piece orchestra with cool jazz-funk grooves, tarted-up Screamin' Jay Hawkins covers with a pair of Jeff Buckley tunes and a gentle reading of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Joss Stone sits in for two songs, including “I Put a Spell on You,” with jazz vocalist Imelda May and opera singer Olivia Safe taking lead on two others, but the focus remains on Beck, who is in a reserved, lyrical mood.

    Smashing Pumpkins- "Chicago Tapes & Unreleased Demos" LPx2 colored vinyl (Tarantula)
    Double LP packed with Smashing PUMPKINS rarities! The first LP features pre-'Gish' cuts that were sold only on cassette prior to getting signed - most of these tracks were never re-recorded for future albums! The second disc is BILLY CORGAN demos he did on his tape machine for the 'Mellon Collie', all acoustic with nice textures! 21 trracks.

    Acid Bath- "Paegan Terrorism Tactics" LPx2 (Rotten)
    Acid Bath's 2nd album now reissued on double vinyl in gatefold sleeve.

    Harry Belafonte- "Belafonte Sings The Blues" CD (Classics)
    After flirting with traditional African-American material in his previous albums, Belafonte, for the first time, devotes an entire album to the blues. However, of the eleven songs, only two could be classified as traditional blues: "In the Evenin' Mama" and "Cotton Fields," the latter given a five minute treatment. Belafonte would take this song on the road as part of his live act for the next decade. Of the other songs, three were covers of Ray Charles standards ("A Fool For You," "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "Mary Ann"). Another highlight is Belafonte's rendition of Billie Holiday's "God Bless the Child." Footnote: this was the first Belafonte album recorded in stereo. Recorded in 1958.

    Frazey Ford- "Obadiah" CD+LP (Nettwek)
    Debut solo CD from Be Good Tanyas member. Vinyl now here as well.

    Gorillaz- "Plastic Beach" LPx2 (EMI)
    Latest album finally released on vinyl.

    Natural Yogurt Band- "Eastern Promise" 7" (Jazzman)
    The Natural Yogurt Band don't disappoint with another glimpse into their extensive archive of ethereal, esoteric and otherworldly sounds! Percussive polyphonics, transient pulsations and phonosynthetic oscillations massage your brain and ease your senses into a floating world of physiodelic cosmic space throb. Their first album sold out everywhere, quickly, and much was said about the band, much of it rumor and conjecture. Here's a glimpse of their next record, Tuck In With The Natural Yogurt Band.

    Bad Religion- "The Dissent Of Man" LP+CD (Epitaph)
    Bad Religion entered the studio armed with 16 songs that are a testament to why Bad Religion has remained relevant for the better part of three decades. "These are some of my favorite songs I’ve ever written," says Gurewitz. "A few of them took me way outside my comfort zone as a writer to a place I haven’t gone since Recipe or Stranger than Fiction." New songs, 'Resist Stance' and 'Won’t Somebody' have already been embraced by the band’s passionate fans, as evidenced by the overwhelming response during a series of 25 live shows celebrating Bad Religion’s 30th anniversary earlier this year. These songs were recorded and given away as part of a free digital album, 30 Years Live, as a thank you to their fans for their support over the last three decades.

    Raveonettes- "Lust Lust Lust" LP (Vice)
    In on vinyl for very first time.

    Gov't Mule- "Life before Insanity/Dose" CD (Retroworld)

    Dead Confederate- "Wrecking Ball" LPx2 (Tao)
    Double LP from 2008 with download.

    Atomic Rooster- "Made In England" CD (Castle)
    Excellent early 70's organ led hard rock band from the UK.

    NOFX- "The Longest EP" LPx2 (Fat Wreck)
    It's NOFX!! You know, one of the most imitated punk bands of the last 25 years, beloved by droves of loyal fans, the standard bearer in the independent music scene, among the most influential and often controversial bands of their time, the most widely traveled group around, the authors of countless hit songs. They've got a prodigious resume to be sure and an extensive catalog to back it up: 11 full-length studio albums, 2 live records, 13 EP’s, and so many 7" singles it'll give you a headache trying to remember them all. With so many odds and ends out there, Fat Mike (singer/bassist) decided it might be nice to cull the majority of their EP's into one release, 'The Longest EP'. A collection of 30 songs, 'The Longest EP' spans NOFX’s first Fat Wreck Chords release 'The PMRC Can Suck On This' to their latest, 'Cokie The Clown'. It includes 8 tracks that have never been available on CD or digitally, and 2 songs previously unreleased in any format. With an ardent and extensive fan base, NOFX’s releases are always met with great anticipation and 'The Longest EP' will be no different. Just to up the ante, the vinyl version (double LP) will be a pressing limited to 2000 copies.

    The Weepies- "Be My Thrill" LP (Nettwerk)
    Like an earthier version of Sixpence None the Richer, the Weepies brew up a sound that’s part Lilith Fair throwback, part coffeehouse folk, and part NPR-approved pop. Be My Thrill, the duo’s third album, continues the same thread the Weepies have been spinning since their 2003 debut, with acoustic guitars and light boy/girl harmonies taking most of the spotlight.

    Lalo Schifrin- "OST: Mission Impossible" LP (Dot)
    TV soundtrack recordings from 1968-1973.

    Humble Pie- "S/T" CD (Repertoire)
    Alternating hard-driving blues-rockers with country-folk numbers, Humble Pie neatly showcases the two sides of this band's personality on their first release for a major American label and third album overall. All of the elements are in place for the sound that would reach its studio peak with the next release, Rock On, and culminate with the classic Live at the Fillmore album. "Earth and Water Song" provides a blueprint for the acoustic guitar-based sound Peter Frampton would ride to multi-platinum success as a solo artist later in the decade. "One Eyed Trouser-Snake Rumba" and "Red Light Mama, Red Hot!" show the hard-rocking direction in which Steve Marriott would move the band after Frampton's departure the following year.

    Shit Robot- "From The Cradle To The Rave" CD (DFA)
    Everyone in the music biz seems to have a story, and Irish emigre Marcus Lambkin has a whopper; after leaving Dublin for New York in the early 90's he soon became acquainted with one James "LCD Soundsystem" Murphy, founder of the legendary DFA label and - like I need to tell you - one of the key players in the noughties emergence of dance punk and twisted disco. Despite nearly two decades of DJing (After initially using his skills as a trained cabinet maker to help build the DFA studio) From The Cradle To The Rave constitutes Lambkin's debut album under the Shit Robot pseudonym, one that he's admitted is broadly influenced by his early days attending warehouse parties on Manhattan's bohemian Lower East Side. Those interested in Murphy's will he/won't he claim to be retiring LCD Soundsystem as a vehicle will note that he contributes on both production and vocal duties, the latter being on the acid-tinged closer Triumph. He's by no means the only top drawer collaborator; Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor adds his geeky falsetto to the soulful 8-bit tones of Losing My Patience, whilst Nancy Whang's turn on the supreme kitsch of Take 'Em Up sounds like a cross between LA psych poppers The Bird And The Bee and early Pet Shop Boys. It's these moments that you sense what Lambkin is referring to when he says that From The Cradle To Rave has a "Poppy side". Happily however for the Detroit obsessed there are wide open spaces designed to facilitate their more utilitarian dancefloor nature. Opener Tuff Enuff pillages Kraftwerk's Trans Europe Express - but since when the hell has that ever been a bad thing - whilst I Found Love has all the trademark leftfield finesse of Carl Craig and I Got A Feeling similarly the euphoria of classic early house. With a speed dial to kill for and his boss disapearing off into the background for a while, opportunity could be knocking belatedly for Marcus Lambkin: you assume his next outing will be less than twenty years in gestation.

    F-Minus- "Suburban Blight" CD (Hellcat)
    So-Cal crust punk from 2001 (their 2nd album).

    Joy Division- "Unknown Pleasures" LP (Rhino)
    A classic bit of 80's history now back in on LP.

    Jimmy Eat World- "Chase This Light" LP (Interscope)
    New release on vinyl.

    Porter Wagoner- "What Ain't To Be, Just Might Happen/Sings His Own" CD (Omni)
    Presented here for the very first time on CD are the late PORTER WAGONER's two greatest LPs from the early 1970's, both full of stark autobiographical moments. Most notorious of these is "The Rubber Room", a 1971 country chart hit over-brimming with pain and insanity. Other highlights abound; "If I Lose My Mind" and "Comes And Goes" both explore similar tortured terrain, while "Albert Erving" describes a broken recluse and "Be A Little Quieter" a man tormented by his ghosts. Remastered with love and care from the original RCA Victor master tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes, rare photos from Porter’s private collection and a generous clutch of extra tracks (including a rare duet with Merle Haggard). Porter Wagoner was a consummate showman, songwriter and performer who clothed the darkest jewels from the human heart in a purple sequined countrypolitan sheen. Remastered in 2010 from the original RCA Victor master tapes! 30 tracks!

    Sword- "Age Of Winters" LP (Kemado)
