    New Stock For The Week!   
    Monday, December 03 2012 @ 08:54 am CST
    Contributed by: Dave

    These CD's & LP's will be here Wednesday afternoon. I'll be adding more titles to the list very soon.

    Elbow- Dead In The Boot LPx2
    British pressing. Culled from singles that date back to 2001, a track from the EP Newborn ("None One"), and B-sides from 2011's well-received Build a Rocket Boys!, Dead in the Boot offers up a rare glimpse into the often insular song-building world of the Manchester outfit. Decidedly less bombastic and ornate than the majority of the band's more anthemic album offerings, Dead in the Boot is a quieter, more abstract affair that feels surprisingly autonomous.

    Graveyard- Lights Out CD
    Latest album from Swedish hard rock/stoner/psyche band.

    V/A- Reservoir Dogs OST LP
    Late arriving RSD release. First time available on mystery coloured vinyl.

    Mike Ness- Cheating At Solitaire CD
    Solo album from Social Distortions Mike Ness.

    Flying Burrito Brothers- Gilded Palace Of Sin/Burrito Deluxe CD
    Their two best albums on one CD. Classic cosmic country from the mid 70's.

    Steve Hackett- Genesis Revisited II CDx2
    2012 album from the former Genesis guitarist. It took him a while, but finally - in 1996 - he did it: Steve began to deal with his own past as a musician and started to work on a Genesis project. The result was a curious and at times brave album called Genesis Revisited, that did not only combine a large collection of musical styles, but also an impressive list of guest musicians. It seemed like Steve had finally made peace with his Genesis past, but soon after that album and a few shows, he worked on other projects. For a couple of years now, Steve has included more and more Genesis songs in his live set. Finally, Steve decided to go back again and try to recapture the old spirit with his recent confidence and also experience as a musician and arranger. Again, a lot of friends and colleagues were invited to join. This time, Steve took it a step further and it soon became clear that the result would be a double CD. Steve has more guest singers on the new album than on the first one.

    Jamey Johnson- Living For A Song; A Tribute To Hank Cochran CD
    2012 release, a tribute to Country songwriting legend Hank Cochran. When word got out that acclaimed Nashville artist Jamey Johnson was recording a tribute album to Cochran, musical superstars clamored to participate. From the ranks of the Country Music Hall of Fame came George Strait, Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Ray Price and Vince Gill, not to mention Cochran's oldest and truest friend, Willie Nelson. Veteran stars Leon Russell, Elvis Costello, Bobby Bare and Asleep at the Wheel perform on the album alongside contemporary artists such as Alison Krauss, Lee Ann Womack and Ronnie Dunn.

    Skitliv- Amfetamin CD
    Exclusive release from the doom/noise project of Maniac (ex-Mayhem), featuring Kvarforth (Shining), and with special guest vocals by Attila (Sunn O))), Mayhem).

    Brain Donor- Drain'd Boner CD
    This is Englishman Julian Cope, who fronted 80's group the Teardrop Explodes. Brain Donor is rocking, spacey, oozing, thunderous, ominous... kinda like a lost 1971 Krautrock record that actually LIVES UP to the hype that those kind of records usually (most often undeservedly) get... reference points for Drain'd Boner would include early Guru Guru, 1972-ish Hawkwind ("Where Do We Take U" would have been Hawkwind's best song ever, if Hawkwind had done it), maybe even early Black Sabbath... but after one hears Brain Donor, one tends to forget about those other bands...

    Black Moth Super Rainbow- Cobra Juicy CD+LP
    2012 release from the enigmatic and mysterious American experimental band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Cobra Juicy is the follow-up to their 2009 album Eating Us. Black Moth Super Rainbow's music contains elements of Psychedelia, Folk, Electronica and Pop. Their distinctive sound is characterized by analog electronic instruments including the vocoder, Rhodes piano and Novatron.

    Legendary Pink Dots- Plutonium Blonde CD
    Formed in London in 1980, the Legendary Pink Dots moved to Amsterdam in the middle of the decade. Members throughout the band's career have been Edward Ka-Spel (vocals, keyboards) and Phil Knight (keyboards), also known as the Silver Man, with a shifting supporting cast over the years. The Dots' music is by turns melodic pop and exotic psychedelia, with classical influences, sampling, and relentlessly dark, violent, apocalyptic lyrics.
    The folks at ROIR say that this is Legendary Pink Dots' "most commercially appealing album to date," and the scary (and kind of cool) thing is that they may well be right. Think about that while you're listening to "Torchsong," with its stomping industrial beat, its mechanical-animals-in-agony sound effects, and its faintly menacing vocals. Or the mopey synth pop of "Rainbows Too?," the weirdly whimsical spoken word interlude "An Arm and a Leg," the fingerpicked banjo on "Mailman," or the decidedly creepy album closer "Cubic Caesar." There's a little bit of something for everyone on Plutonium Blonde, and while bands that work intentionally to provide that kind of pandering variety usually end up sounding desperate, the Legendary Pink Dots just sound like the kind of band that can make all kinds of weirdness sound pleasing in many different ways.

    Forgetters- S/T CD+LP
    Members Kevin Mahon (Against Me!) and Blake Schwarzenbach (Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil) went to Baltimore, Maryland, in late 2011 / early 2012 to record this eponymous full-length with J. Robbins (Jawbox). Monophonics- In Your Brain CD+LP
    The new record from San Francisco based band MONOPHONICS entitled 'In Your Brain' sits on the fuzzy psych side of soul and funk. Paying homage to innovators such as Sly Stone, Norman Whitfield and Funkadelic's George Clinton, the 6 piece outfit displays their ability to put a moody stamp on each composition. Touching on everything from cinematic soul, heavy funk, 60s rock and spaghetti western laced with yellow sunshine acid, the album is sure to leave you tuned in and turned on! Vinyl edition includes download card.

    The Germs- GI LP
    1979. A blast of self-lacerating L.A. punk in its original glory, (GI) is simply classic; a commanding, rampaging sneer at everyone and everything infused with a particular, disturbed vision.

    Distillers- S/T LP
    Back in stock on vinyl.

    Distillers- Sing Sing Death House LP
    Back in stock on vinyl.

    Television- Marquee Moon LP
    German import on 180 gram vinyl with gate fold sleeve. Marquee Moon is a revolutionary album, but it's a subtle, understated revolution. Without question, it is a guitar rock album -- it's astonishing to hear the interplay between Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd -- but it is a guitar rock album unlike any other. Where their predecessors in the New York punk scene, most notably the Velvet Underground, had fused blues structures with avant-garde flourishes, Television completely strip away any sense of swing or groove, even when they are playing standard three-chord changes. Marquee Moon is comprised entirely of tense garage rockers that spiral into heady intellectual territory, which is achieved through the group's long, interweaving instrumental sections, not through Verlaine's words. That alone made Marquee Moon a trailblazing album -- it's impossible to imagine post-punk soundscapes without it. Of course, it wouldn't have had such an impact if Verlaine hadn't written an excellent set of songs that conveyed a fractured urban mythology unlike any of his contemporaries. From the nervy opener, "See No Evil," to the majestic title track, there is simply not a bad song on the entire record. And what has kept Marquee Moon fresh over the years is how Television flesh out Verlaine's poetry into sweeping sonic epics.

    Jamey Johnson- That Lonesome Song LPx2
    Modern country with one boot dragging in the past. This is Jamey's 2nd album from 2008. Lot's of great songs with minimal backing and plenty of pedal steel. Cut live on the studio floor.

    Ryan Bingham- Roadhouse Sun LPx2
    2009. At the age of 28, Ryan Bingham already sings like he's been howling at the moon in between shots of bourbon and sucking down filterless Chesterfields every night of his life, transplanting the voice of a hard-bitten middle-aged survivor into the body of a guy still young enough to be learning a few things about the world. This disconnect is felt more than once on Roadhouse Sun, Bingham's second major-label album. While Bingham's road-worn voice and tough melodies, which veer between twang-infused rock, rowdy roadhouse blues, and hardscrabble country, certainly sound like the real thing, and his band (Corby Schaub on guitar, Elijah Ford on bass, Matt Smith on drums) has both the chops and the attitude to make these tunes stand up and crow.

    Willie Nelson- Countryman LP
    Countryman was first brainstormed by Don Was and Chris Blackwell way back in 1995 and was originally intended for release on Blackwell's Island Records. The idea of combining Willie Nelson's patented Texas glide with some one-drop Jamaican rhythms is certainly a novel one, but the chances of it working seemed as remote as George Jones hitting Kingston and toasting "White Lightning" over a choice dubplate at the local yard. You'd have to be crazy or high to think it would work. Well, this is Willie Nelson, after all, the man who wrote "Crazy" and has had more than his share of encounters with Texas locoweed, so all concerned figured, man, this'll be great, and work began on Countryman in 1996 with Don Was producing. The project almost immediately fell victim to label monkey business, and sat on Nelson's back burner for nearly a decade, until Lost Highway hired producer Richard Feldman to come in and finish it.

    DJ Shadow- The Less You Know, The Better LPx2
    DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis) is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo' Wax label. Inspired by hip-hop's early years, he then grew to absorb the heyday of crews like Eric B. & Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy; groups which prominently featured DJs in their ranks. 'The Less You Know The Better' is DJ Shadow's fourth studio album.

    Soundgarden- King Animal LPx2
    Their brand new album on double LP.

    Melvin Sparks- Sparks LP
    Fantastic instrumental jazz funk guitar player from the 70's. Killer stuff!

    Melvin Sparks- Akilah LP
    Fantastic instrumental jazz funk guitar player from the 70's. Killer stuff!

    Vince Guaraldi Trio- A Charlie Brown Christmas LP
    Who wouldn't want to be spinning this during the holidays! This is the music from the annual Charlie Brown Xmas TV show. Green vinyl no less.

    Ray Charles- What'd I Say LP
    RAY CHARLES was the premier architect singer/songwriter/musician whose "genius" of combining jazz and blues with gospel most certainly began the American soul music movement. This modern form of R&B, which would become an American way of life forever, etched itself in total with the release of his 1959 classic hit single and album 'What’d I Say'. Fused with heavy blues, gospel and rock and roll, "What’d I Say" was one of Ray's very first top ten hits after a very long run of predominantly R&B only chart successes. Also included on this masterpiece are some of brother Ray's more refined blues rockers, like the powerful instrumental "Rockhouse", the rockin' "You Be My Baby", the shouter "Tell Me How Do You Feel", and the brilliant pre-soul sounds of "What Kind Of Man Are You", which features the Raylettes' Mary Ann Fisher. Friday Music is very honored to announce the first time ever 180 gram audiophile vinyl LP of this Ray Charles classic, mastered from the original monophonic Atlantic Records tapes!

    Sword- Age Of Winters LP
    Back in stock on vinyl.

    Firehose- Ragin' Full On LP
    When the Minutemen were forced to split up in December of 1985 due to the untimely death of singer/guitarist D. Boon, the remaining members (bassist Mike Watt and drummer George Hurley) were so devastated that they considered giving up music all together. Shortly afterwards though, a college student and major Minutemen fan, Ed Crawford, convinced the remaining members to soldier on. And soldier on they did, taking Crawford (known as "Ed fROMOHIO," due to his signature on a letter) as their new singer/guitarist, and dubbing the new outfit fIREHOSE, after the famous Bob Dylan song "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Their first album was issued less than a year after Boon's death, 1986's Ragin', Full On for SST, and surprisingly, the new band sounded completely different than it's predecessor (for example, Crawford had more of a real singing voice than Boon, the music was less unpredictable and more focused, etc.). Ex-Black Flag bassist Kira (and eventual wife of Watt) helped co-write several tracks: the hyper instrumental "Under the Influence of Meat Puppets," plus "It Matters," "Locked In," "Perfect Pairs," "Relatin' Dudes to Jazz," and "Things Could Turn Around." Other highlights included "Brave Captain," "Candle and the Flame," "Choose Any Memory," and "Caroms." While fIREHOSE would perfect their highly original sound on future albums (Flyin' the Flannel, Mr. Machinery Operator, etc.), Ragin', Full On still proved to be a worthwhile, interesting debut.

    Firehose- If'n LP
    Whereas fIREHOSE's debut, 1986's Ragin', Full On, was issued quickly to get the new outfit off the ground (two of the three members were still reeling from the death of their previous band's frontman, the Minutemen's D. Boon), their sophomore effort, 1987's If'n, included more cohesive and focused songwriting. Touring together had obviously made Watt-Hurley-Crawford tighter as a unit, and several of their best all-time compositions reside here. Although the debut incorporated other musical forms besides punk and hard rock (funk, jazz, etc.), If'n was the first fIREHOSE release to feature folk-style originals -- such as Crawford's "In Memory of Elizabeth Cotton." Standouts include the album opening highway anthem "Sometimes," the groovy '50s feel of "Honey, Please," the laid-back "Backroads," and the irate rockers "Anger" and "For the Singer of R.E.M." Also featured are several Mike Watt lead vocal spots -- the perennial concert favorite "Making the Freeway" (included on the 1993 mini-album Live Totem Pole EP), the humorous "Me & You Remembering," "Operation Solitaire," and the closing epic "Thunder Child."

    Firehose- From Ohio LP
    fIREHOSE's second release, 1987's If'n, was a major improvement over their 1986 debut, Ragin', Full On. And while their third album, 1988's fROMOHIO, was another solid set and contained its share of highlights, it seemed to be cut from the same musical cloth as its predecessor rather than a true progression. Again, the playing is inspired, and the new band had already established an original, identifiable sound. The best tracks prove to be Ed Crawford originals -- "In My Mind" and "Time with You" (the latter was an MTV video), while "Whisperin' While Hollerin'" and "What Gets Heard" soon became concert staples. The band's appreciation of folk shines through with a reading of the traditional black folk song "Vastopol" and the original "Liberty for Our Friend," and drummer George Hurley takes center stage on a pair of short, unaccompanied drum solos -- "Let the Drummer Have Some" and "'Nuf That Shit, George." Other highlights include the album opener "Riddle of the Eighties," the funky "Mas Cojones," the laid-back rock of "If'n" and "Understanding," plus the lethargic album closer "The Softest Hammer."

    Sleep- Dopesmoker LPx2
    Limited edition on double purple vinyl with 2 bonus tracks.

    Eliott Smith- XO LP
    On XO, Elliott Smith leaves the indie doldrums behind and takes wing to new, lush surroundings. By adding full instrumentation to his acoustic reveries, Smith has ascended to a new level of song-writing that shores up his gentle voice and country-tinged guitar playing with extra layers of vocal arrangements and charming piano vamps. Strains of classic rock filter into the Beatlesque "Baby Britain" and the Beach Boys-inspired "I Didn't Understand"- but Smith succeeds in adapting them to his style rather than the other way around. XO is a stunning shadow print of a soul adrift in the music industry, a dark place indeed.

    The Sword- Apocryphon CD
    Brand new CD from The Sword.

    Ray Lamontagne- Gossip In The Grain LPx2
    Gossip in the Grain is LaMontagne's most adventurous recording, yet in many ways it's also the most focused and well executed. The partnership with Ethan Johns has become almost symbiotic at this point; his songwriting has become so confident, sure, and expressive -- despite the ready intimacy in its subject matter -- that he's become a kind of force majeure. One thing is certain, that given the consistency and vision LaMontagne has shown on all three albums, punters are certain to follow him wherever he goes next.

    Exciter- Heavy Metal LP
    A Canadian metal classic.

    Les Claypool- Purple Onion LP
    2002. For his first post-Primus solo studio release, Les Claypool sounds exactly like...Les Claypool. That's certainly not a surprise. He uses core members of his touring Frog Brigade, such as longtime drummer Jay Lane, guitarist Eenor, saxophonist Skerik, and percussionist Mike Dillon. It is this latter musician who provides much aid in adding depth to Claypool's slaphappy sound, infusing the songs with shimmering vibraphone counterpoints. Claypool himself is in particularly fine and playful form, with the winged monkeys-like chant at the center of "David Makalaster" and the socially conscious stoned wisdom of "Ding Dong." The music isn't nearly as edgy or angular as his work with Primus, but that's ultimately okay.

    Acid Bath- "Paegan Terrorism Tactics" CD+LPx2
    The 2nd and final album from New Orleans sludge/stoner/psyche band.

    Middle Brother- "S/T" LP
    The side project Middle Brother, a trio of the singer/songwriters Taylor Goldsmith (of Dawes), John McCauley (of Deer Tick), and Matthew Vasquez (of Delta Spirit), works because its members share a similar sensibility, so that, although they alternate selections as if participating in a song pull, the album holds together in the same spirit. That is, it holds together loosely, since the similar sensibility is the familiar one of the drunken slacker full of gallows humor, and the folk and folk-rock music, appropriately, is played in ramshackle, thrown-together arrangements. The musicians tip their hand (and tip their hats) by covering Paul Westerberg's "Portland," and Westerberg would fit right in with this bunch of guys, with their shared wry sense of humor and skewed point of view. Of course, whether it's Goldsmith, McCauley, or Vasquez at the microphone, a constant subject of interest is romantic relationships with women, and, not surprisingly, those relationships don't seem to be going well. Though the singers can be caustic -- "Thanks for Noting" is one of Goldsmith's song titles -- they generally acknowledge that they're to blame. Not that they offer to reform. They seem to see themselves as at least potentially loveable screw-ups, and if the woman in question loses patience and takes off, well, there's always the bottle, and the guitar, and the road. In this sense, the singers reinforce their own worst tendencies, but they seem to be having fun, and since the listener isn't the one who's going to have to take them home, the music can be enjoyed without harm.

    Alice In Chains- MTV Unplugged LPx2
    Dutch audiophile pressing on 180 gram vinyl.

    Gov't Mule- S/T LPx2
    Dutch audiophile pressing on 180 gram vinyl.

    Gov't Mule- Deja Voodoo LPx2
    Dutch audiophile pressing on 180 gram vinyl.

    Tedeschi Trucks Band- Revelator LP
    Revelator is the debut studio album from the 11-piece Tedeschi-Trucks Band, who already have a reputation as a wildly exciting live jam group. That said, the record that Susan Tedeschi and husband Derek Trucks have recorded proves something beyond their well-founded reputation as a live unit: that they can write, perform, and produce great songs that capture the authentic, emotional fire and original arrangements that so many modern blues and roots recordings lack.
    Revelator is a roots record that sets a modern standard even as it draws its inspiration from the past. It's got everything a listener could want: grit, groove, raw, spiritual emotion, and expert-level musical truth.

    Paul Simon- Graceland LP
    Back in stock on 180 gram HQ vinyl.

    Patti Smith- Banga LPx2
    Patti's brand new album now here on vinyl. Just about every review of this album has been more than positive.

    Between The Buried & Me- The Parallax II LPx2
    Their latest album back in on double vinyl.

    Walk The Moon- S/T LP
    The eponymous sophomore outing from melodious, heavily carbonated, Cincinnati-based dance-pop quartet Walk the Moon occupies the same neon-splashed, hyper-literate head space as high-energy bands like Phoenix, Passion Pit, and Foster the People. Led by frontman Nicholas Petricca, who can go from a nervous David Byrne wail to a glassy 90125-era Jon Anderson falsetto in a matter of seconds, the band’s slick blend of classic new wave, tech-savvy dance rock, and mathy indie pop can be jarring upon first listen, but multiple spins reveal an impressively tight unit that understands the thin line between immaculately rendered electro-art pop cacophony and hook-friendly modern rock.

    Pentagram- Last Rites LP
    2011 saw the release of Last Rites, their first album of new material in 7 years. This now here on LP.

    Ed Gein- Bad Luck LP
    Named for one of America's most notorious serial killers (his exploits helped inspire the movies Psycho and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Ed Gein generate a suitably brutal and unforgiving sonic assault, combining the skull-crushing power of thrash metal and grindcore with the angry political ranting and social commentary of hardcore punk.

    Incubus- S.C.I.E.N.C.E. LPx2
    Late arriving RSD release.

    Incubus- If Not Now...LPx2
    back in stock on double LP.

    Iron Man- Black Night LP
    Maryland doomsters Iron Man proclaimed their unapologetic Black Sabbath worship to the planet at large with this 1993 debut album, Black Knight, which capped a five-year apprenticeship and steady rise through the ranks of the competitive local heavy metal scene. It was well worth the wait, though, since that lengthy apprenticeship refined the band's performance chops and spawned an absolutely stellar collection of songs that was pretty much all killer, no filler. Led by guitarist, chief songwriter, and overall guiding force Al Morris III, galloping power chord stallions like "Choices," "Life After Death," and the magnificent "The Liar" essentially take over where Black Sabbath's Mob Rules left off, and invariably contain positively sizzling lead runs capable of making Tony Iommi himself cry.

    Death Grips- The Money Store LP
    A confusing band from the get-go, Death Grips' first release, Exmilitary, was maybe a mixtape, maybe a debut, or maybe both, but there's little doubt that the freely downloadable monster was a headline release in the underground hip-hop renaissance of 2011.
    The dense bed of edgy grind that Stefan Burnett's working with on The Money Store is crafted by producers Andy Morin and Zach Hill (the latter being the man taking the genre-free attitude of Zorn and Laswell into the age of mixtapes), and it isn't without mercy or melody, even though it is, decidedly, an onslaught. All these elements are glued together by a Bad Brains-sized sense of purpose, which makes Death Grips sound alive and hungry in spite of their name, and while it is interesting that this dark ball of hip-hop anti-matter was released by a major, what sticks is the music. The Money Store is an important record that's also compelling, loaded with kinetic blows against the empire and fully stuffed with that attractive maverick spirit.

    Dandy Warhols- This Machine LP
    Their latest solid album from 2012.

    Goatwhore- Blood For The Master LP
    Louisiana black metal outfit Goatwhore was formed by singer/guitarist Sammy Duet following the breakup of his previous band, Acid Bath.
    While it's always interesting when bands set out to explore bold new sonic waters, there's something to be said for doing the classics incredibly well. With their fifth album, Blood for the Master, Goatwhore do just that, delivering another album of relentless and refined blackened death metal that speaks volumes about the band's level of craftsmanship. Every element of the album is airtight, and it's from this highly fortified position that the band are able to launch and all-out metal assault, digging into their arsenal of thrash, death, and black metal riffage to destroy the eardrums of anyone they come across.

    Mother Mother- The Sticks LP
    Latest album from popular Canadian act.

    The Who- Quadrophenia LPx2
    Digitally remastered double vinyl LP pressing of this 1973 concept album by the British Rock icons. This set gives a unique insight into the creation of this landmark album and features a remaster of the original double album.

    Marl Knopfler- Privateering LPx2

    Childish Gambino- Camp LPx2
    Vinyl LP pressing. 2011 album from TV writer, actor, standup comedian and rapper Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino. A unique blend of Hip Hop with multiple genres, combined with lyrical genius, Gambino has gone from a viral cult following to a mega sensation.

    Mumford & Sons- Babel LP
    Back in stock on vinyl.

    Tragically Hip- Now For Plan A LPx2
    The Tragically Hip come from a long line of bands that began as arena-rock-in-my-basement garage outfits, and actually soldiered on to make music worthy of achieving that aspiration. While it's true that 2004's In Between Evolution and the lackluster We Are the Same were missteps because they were squarely aimed at the ever elusive mainstream, Now for Plan A, the Hip's 13th long-player, produced by Gavin Brown, moves them back to their square, toward the immediacy of their earlier records. Its 11 tracks deliver a varied, mostly uptempo, solid sonic ride that combines big-budget rock & roll production with more basic elements of urgency, impulsiveness, and humor.
    Now for Plan A ably demonstrates that The Tragically Hip still have it whenever they want it.

    Nirvana- In Utero LP
    Back in stock on LP.

    Coheed & Cambria- The Afterman: Ascension LP
    Latest album from prog-rock band.

    Gallows- S/T LP
    After Gallows parted ways with singer Frank Carter over a differing opinion of what direction to take the band's sound, it was clear that some kind of change was on the horizon. That change comes to fruition on the band's third album, the eponymously titled Gallows. On the first album to feature new singer Wade MacNeil (formerly of Alexisonfire), the band's sound feels even more firmly rooted in the driving grind of Refused and Drive Like Jehu.
