    The Far Field

    "This is the kind of band that makes you wish other bands tried
    harder." - Pitchfork


    "An absolute and unqualified triumph" - Stereogum


    "Mournful, triumphant, heroic" - Complex


    The Far Field refines and builds on the breakthroughs of the
    Baltimore-based trio's 2014 album Singles, bursting with undeniable
    hooks and disarmingly honest lyrics written by Samuel
    T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and
    Gerrit Whelmers (keyboards, programming).


    After the success of Singles and the hundreds of Future Islands
    shows played in that period, the band began writing new material
    on the coast of North Carolina, and continued throughout
    the year in Baltimore before road-testing these songs at a series
    of secret shows under fake names. Later that year, they traveled
    to Los Angeles to record with Grammy Award-winning producer
    John Congleton at the legendary Sunset Sound, where everyone
    from The Beach Boys to Prince have laid down masterpieces.
    With string and horn arrangements by Patrick McMinn,
    The Far Field is the first Future Islands record to feature live
    drums by Michael Lowry, who joined the band prior to their sensational
    performance of "Seasons (Waiting On You)" on
    David Letterman's late night TV show. Blondie's Debbie Harry
    also makes a guest appearance, in a duet with Herring on penultimate
    track "Shadows."


    Across The Far Field's twelve chest-pounding love songs and
    odes to the road, Future Islands brilliantly expresses the band's
    central themes they've been exploring for the last decade: that
    there is power in emotional vulnerability, that one can find a way
    to laugh and cry in the same breath - and be stronger for it.

    117 Degrees

    First Pressing Of 1000 Numbered Copies On Blue Marbled Vinyl


    117 Degrees (1998) is the second studio album by former Guns N' Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin, and his first musical work not released under a band name. The album picks up right where The Ju Ju Hounds left off, offering a set of 14 bluesy hard rockers in the vein of Chuck Berry, the Stones, the Faces, Aerosmith, and Guns N'Roses


    117 Degrees features appearances from Stradlin's former Guns N' Roses bandmate Duff McKagan and former Ju Ju Hounds' bandmate Rick Richards, also ex-of The Georgia Satellites. The tracks "Memphis, Tennessee" and "Good Enough" feature the Ju Ju Hounds lineup, as the songs were recorded by the band before breaking up.


    This album rocks harder than most roots-Rock albums of the late '90s. None of his contemporaries were even trying for this kind of unassuming, straightforward, well-crafted Hard Rock.

    The President's Dead (Awaiting Repress)

    The President's Dead is the first release by Okkervil River since 2005's masterful Black Sheep Boy project. Having spent most of 2005 touring and writing, the band and Jagjaguwar wanted to get this single out before 2006 came to a close. Locked in the grooves of this limited-edition vinyl-only release is what might be Okkervil River's most accessible and most contentious song, The President's Dead. A two-minute and forty-two second serving of alternative historical fiction camouflaged as a folk anthem tarted up as a pop single that never was, The President's Dead empathetically depicts the shock felt by a young Republican upon hearing news of an assassination over the radio, its lyrics shifting sneakily from images of public horror to those of private tenderness as its music performs a similarly schizoid leap. Meanwhile, sequestered away on side 2, the lyric that bobs atop the loping, twangy pop of The Room I'm Hiding In depicts a paranoid flight from vastly more powerful pursuers determined to exact the most severe punishment.

    The Litmus Test

    Cut Chemists Litmus Test is a self-mixed retrospective showcasing one of the 1990s great DJ/producers repertoire.
    Originally released in 2004, the album ushered in his solo era as a precursor to his Warner Brothers debut release
    The Audience Is Listening.


    A mix of selected productions/mixes Cut Chemist had done to date - some for hire, some for pleasure, and many for
    the group hed become famous with, Jurassic 5. This compilation is a good snapshot of his career, and makes one
    realize the level of talent that was quietly lurking behind the turntables in J5 - from his work with retro-funk label
    Now Again (Bunkys Pick) to backpack Hip Hop kids Ugly Duckling to futuristic complex rappers Blackalicious
    and bedroom cut-up exercises in Lesson 6, Cut Chemist made a case that established his legacy as one of the
    greats of the era, expertly segueing and blending a catalogue of his own compositions, ending up with a new album,
    which turns out to be a real solid listen.


    For fans of: DJ Shadow, Edan, Q-Bert, Jurassic 5, Quannum, The Roots, Stones Throw Records and the Cut-Up genre.

    Cure For Pain (Awaiting Repress)

    Low-rock was one way enigmatic Morphine frontman Mark Sandman used to describe his bands beat-inspired blues-jazz-rock holy racket. Along with Sandmans baritone vocal delivery and laconic two-string bass styling, co-founder Dana Colley played a saxophone as his lead instrument of choice instead of the expected guitar, creating a quirky and burning sensibility. Original drummer Jerome Deupree, who was replaced by percussionist Billy Conway during the recording of 1993s Cure For Pain, flushed out the unorthodox trio.


    Released on vinyl as the second title on Light In The Attics Modern Classics Recordings imprint. Featuring the essential songs Buena, Sheila, Candy, and the moving title-track Cure For Pain, this is the albums first-ever U.S. vinyl issue. Modern Classics Cure For Pain features lovingly re-mastered audio, 180g wax, and deluxe tip-on gatefold jacket with original album art.

    No Shouts, No Calls

    Following Rock It To The Moon (2001), Power Out (2004), and Axes (2005), there seems to be a new kind of light shining on Electrelane that remains strong throughout this record, but the willingness to push the envelope hasn't left the band either.


    No Shouts No Calls is an album of enticingly irregular brilliance. Electrelane effortlessly assimilate a wide cut of moods and influences - the off kilter harmony of the Velvet Underground, the droning insistence of Krautrock heroes Can, the bratty brashness of feminist popsters Le Tigre - into a heartfelt batch of art-pop that never sounds snobby - Blender

    The Cost Of Living

    For The Revelations, their latest offering, The Cost Of Living (Decision/Sony RED), is a labor of love years in the making. Since they first came on the scene in 2008 with their Deep Soul EP(Decision), Brooklyn, NY's The Revelations have represented a twenty-first-century take on classic soul-one which shows reverence for the masters, but with a uniquely modern sensibility-a sound The New York Times' Jon Pareles calls "revivalism without poses or quotation marks".


    On The Cost Of Living, Rell Gaddis assumes the lead vocal duties previously provided by Tre Williams. This is by no means Rell's debut with The Revelations, however. Rell has been part of the group's writing team from their onset, and performed with the band for years, even contributing lead vocals to "It's Too Late" from their 2009 album The Bleeding Edge (Decision). Since being signed to Jay-Z's Roc-a-fella Records back in 1997, Rell has had a prolific singing and writing career, creating his own records, as well as penning and lending vocals to songs featuring artists Usher (Rell wrote Usher's #1 RnB Hit Here I Stand), Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mary J Blige, and many more.


    This workman-like mentality is pervasive throughout the band as well. The Revelations feature Wes Mingus on guitar, Gintas Janusonis on drums, and newcomer Ben Zwerin on bass. Each accomplished performing and session musicians in their own right, The Revelations have combined to provide music for icons such as the Wu-Tang Clan and Lee "Scratch" Perry, as well as soul royalty Otis Clay, Willie Clayton, Benny Latimore, and Swamp Dogg.


    The distinctive blues/rock/soul sound of The Cost Of Living was recorded at soul mecca Royal Studios in Memphis, TN, produced by Bob Perry with Lawrence "Boo" Mitchell, as well as The Revelations themselves. For this project, the band is joined by Stax and Hi Records session legends Bobby Manuel (guitar), Lester Snell (keyboards), and Charles Hodges (organ). Lyrically, The Cost Of Living weaves tales of perseverance despite hardship. From the opening track, "Mama", about a single mother scrounging to raise her children, to the jaded optimism of "It's Ok", the pragmatism of "Money Makes The World Go 'Round", and the heart-broken disillusionment of the soul classic "Got To Use My Imagination", The Revelations continue their tradition of presenting blues topics with soul music's urgency.


    The Revelations' engaging and energetic live performances continue to win over audiences from Brooklyn to the Mississippi Delta to California and beyond, creating fans such as A-listers B.B. King, Bobby Womack and Stevie Wonder in the process. This is new, true soul music with a sharp, modern edge.

    Ryley Walker is the reincarnation of the true American guitar player. That's as much a testament to his roving, rambling ways, or as to the fact that his Guild D-35 guitar has endured a few stints in the pawnshop. No one knows what the future holds for young Ryley Walker. Hardship and setbacks and dilapidated housing uncertainty only seem to spur him on creatively. Here, with this record, we risk limiting his access to personal disaster by flirting with success.

    Family

    In an era of social media and perceived self-impor tance, Noah Gundersen
    is in many ways the antithesis of his time. Noah's EP Family pays homage to the
    people who have shaped his life - rather than the self-aggrandizing so common
    to the often homogeneous world of singer-songwriters.


    "Family comes in many forms," says Noah. "I t lives with us, for better and for
    worse. I t shapes us. That 's what this EP is about." The songs on Family are consistently
    impressive and defy genre. Whereas roots-tinged songs like "Family "
    conjure up shades of a solo R yan Adams, the sweeping and ethereal "Fire," bears
    similarities to the lush harmonic feats of Fleet Foxes. Perhaps the album's standout
    track is the pulsating "David," which combines the haunting dark ness of Tom
    Waits with the lyrical angst of Neil Young. " The song is about who I want to be,
    while realizing who I am. I want to be less like my Father and more like my Dad."

    The New Monday (Pre-Order)

    It's been four years since Zach Saginaw, aka Shigeto, returned home to Michigan from a stint in Brooklyn, NY, and since then, the multi-faceted musician has become a part of the fabric of Detroit's music scene. While always having a personal approach to his projects, Saginaw's influences for his third album, The New Monday, are more about the community of Detroit than anything else. The record - named after a weekly DJ event called Monday is the New Monday that Saginaw does at the unassuming Motor City Wine with a group of friends - aptly features contributions from many other Detroit-based artists like Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade affiliate ZelooperZ (who Saginaw also has a side project with called ZGTO). The New Monday represents a communal effort where solidarity is the key. I think over the past four years, I can confidently say that I found my place here, describes Saginaw. I'm happy here and I feel that I have the respect from the people I need respect from, that I want respect from. It's all of the result of embracing it and embracing, not Detroit, but embracing community, embracing family, being closer to my parents, being closer to my oldest friends.

    Ben Webster And Sweets Edison

    Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes! Only 2500 Numbered Limited Edition Copies Worldwide!


    The two jazz giants Ben Webster and Harry Sweets Edison had long wanted to record an album together, and in 1962, they did. Although associated with two different orchestras (Edison was with Basie and Webster was with Ellington), these two swing kings found that they had a lot in common.


    This album features both horn men on three medium tempo blues, Better Go, Kitty, and Did You Call Her Today. Other than this, Webster gets two tenor features, contributing absolutely luscious solos on both How Long Has This Been Going On, and My Romance. After listening to these songs, there can be no doubt that Webster is one of the best balladeers jazz has ever produced. Edison gets his moment in the sun too. On the album closer, Sweets plays a wonderful, even fairly modern sounding, rendition of Embraceable You using a Harmon mute. The ballads, enhanced by the wonderful harmonic sense of pianist Hank Jones, are the highlight of this release, and show both Webster and Sweets' unbeatable melodic sense.


    Ben Webster was considered to be on of the three most important 'swing tenors' along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young. Known by some as The Brute, he had a tough, raspy and brutal tone on stompes but could deliver warmth and sentiment on softer ballads. Trumpeter Harry Sweets Edison spent his early childhood in Kentucky where he was introduced to music by his uncle. After moving back to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio at the age of 12, he began playing the trumpet with local bands, eventually landing a spot with the Count Basie Orchestra.


    Tenor-saxophonist Ben Webster and trumpeter Harry Sweets Edison, both veterans of the swing era (although associated with different orchestras), had long wanted to record a full album together. The results, a swinging quintet set with pianist Hank Jones, bassist George Duvivier and drummer Clarence Johnston, are quite rewarding. There are two ballad features for the tenor (How Long Has This Been Going on and a beautiful version of My Romance) and one for Edison (Embraceable You) along with three medium-tempo collaborations. Nothing unexpected occurs but the melodic music is quite enjoyable. - Scott Yanow, Allmusic.com


    At a time when some are steering jazz up a rather shallow third stream and others are busy digging up its roots, Webster and Edison are only motivated by the sheer love of playing.
