American Hustle SoundtrackLike Goodfellas and Boogie Nights before it, American Hustle's music celebrates the epic feel of '70s pop, rock, and disco and uses it to give its story extra heft. David O. Russell's tale of con men, Feds, and the mob has a lighter touch than either of those two movies, however, and this is reflected in the soundtrack's song choices. More than a few of these tracks are by Electric Light Orchestra as well as Jeff Lynne on his own, and the whimsical yet driving sound of 10538 Orchestra, Long Black Road, and Stream of Stars lends a tongue-in-cheek tone supported by Tom Jones' Delilah and Chris Stills' Live to Live. The album touches on some of the decade's definitive songs (Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Wings' Live and Let Die, Donna Summer's I Feel Love) but never sounds like a prepackaged hits-of-the-'70s collection, due in large part to unique choices like Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' gritty version of Don't Leave Me This Way and Mayssa Karaa's otherworldly Arabic interpretation of Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit, which is so striking that it's one of the finest songs on an album packed with big names. A nuanced and playful soundtrack, American Hustle works well as a companion piece to the movie that spawned it and on its own.

American WrestlersScotland-via-Missouri's American Wrestlers is announcing his self-titled debut full-length, set for release in the U.S. via Fat Possum. The latest single from the new album Kelly. The song's jittery opening and shimmering charm are the perfect taster of American Wrestlers' stripped back and timeless approach to songwriting. Armed with little more than a TASCAM 8-track and the cheapest instruments to hand, the upcoming self-titled debut took shape in remote and rural America, and that comforting step away from the hustle and bustle is felt throughout "Kelly."
Now based in Missouri, the Scotsman's journey is something of wonderment. Born and raised in Glasgow, he then found his way to Manchester, UK, where he recorded some demos under a different name and posted the songs online. It was then, and as a result of his songs, that his now-wife first got in touch. After becoming enraptured with one another, he moved across the Atlantic to get married. The move to Missouri saw American Wrestlers take form, recording in a tiny, remote house, on a Tascam 8-track and the cheapest pawnshop instruments he could afford. The music of American Wrestlers is familiar. It recalls first love, twilight as the day turns to night, and the feeling of discovery that was, at one point, so precious to us; that moment when we are first shockd and beguiled by a melody that strikes us so acutely that our stomachs jump for joy into our chests.1.

Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd (45 RPM)
45 RPM 200-Gram Gatefold Double LP Reissue
Remastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Analog Tapes
Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!
Tip-On Gatefold Jacket By Stoughton Printing
What would American southern rock be without the scorching sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd? Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings have already brought you exceptional reissues of Second Helping and Nuthin' Fancy. Back to the well then, we go, for two more Skynyrd favorites - the epic Gimme Back My Bullets and the band's bluesy, hard-rocking 1973 debut Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd.
Remastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, our Analogue Productions reissue of Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd is the ultimate in luxurious reproduction and unbeatable sound. 200-gram plating and pressing by Quality Record Pressings, and a tip-on Stoughton Printing jacket round out the package.
The undeniable youthful hunger of Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd pumps through the subtly witty songs, all strongly rooted in Southern heritage and working-class values. Independent of the most-requested tune in history, Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd bleeds red, white, and blue and encapsulates the wondrous dichotomies of Southern rock.
Months before Lynyrd Skynyrd enjoyed the privilege of recording its debut, the band entered its seventh year of playing juke joints and assorted dives in a bootstraps effort to land a deal. During a residency at a hardscrabble Georgian club, the group's rambunctious rock, swaggering attitude, blue-collar determination, and country-reared cadence caught the ear of producer/musician Al Kooper. The rest is history. Kooper inked the ensemble to his new imprint and hustled everyone into a Georgia studio for sessions that occurred March through April 1973.
It's at the Studio One space that Lynyrd Skynyrd flashed scampering tempos, cutting give-and-take riffs, loose barroom lines, and off-the-cuff vocalese that entirely separated its approach from that of the more jazz-styled affairs of the Allman Brothers Band. Confederate flags, empty whiskey bottles, cocked pistols, rotgut habits, scorned women, and prodigal drifters populate the songs, nearly all written from first-person perspectives that add to their genuineness. Prophetic touches - twinkling piano notes, soaring mellotrons, a one-off harmonica - provide ideal complements to the intertwined guitar melodies and singer Ronnie Van Zant's comfortable gruffness and way of expressing local customs.1.

Hard Times And Nursery RhymesLegendary Punk Rock Band's 1st Studio Record Since 2004
Group Embraces Gritty, Soulful Currents on Can't-Miss Set
Social Distortion's first new studio record in nearly six years, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes builds on singer Mike Ness twin footings, one in the haunted American landscapes of Hank Williams and the other in the raw swagger of Exile On Main Streetâ€era Rolling Stones. While these twin pillars have always been behind Social Distortions anthemic songs, on Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes they come roaring to the fore, in one of the hardest rocking, most soulful albums of Ness career.
From opener California (Hustle and Flow), a song with enough attitude to redline a 40 Merc, to the dark rockin cover of Hank Williams' Alone and Forsaken, longtime fans will find the trademark punk roar they love. New fans, too, will be drawn to Ness maturing songwriting and vocals with an eye to his rock and roll legacy. Ness also produced Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes (his first time at the production helm).
Cigar-puffing hoodlums, sleazy pimps, staggering winos, down-and-out blue-collar stiffs, on-the-run hustlers, wounded romantics, and spurned lovers are among the crowds that congregate on the street corners of Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, one of the most consistent, complete, soulful, and tunefully gritty records of Social Distortions career. The set reflects the groups progressive embrace of organ into arrangements. As such, subtle spiritual undercurrents coarse through several tunes.

Melbourne (On Sale)It's the original rock n' roll fantasy: to be genius, aloof, deserving. To be instantaneously swept from the wings of obscurity into the arms of acclaim. Well, that's what I've heard at least.
But who does this really happen to? Most successful musicians will tell you it's not enough to make brilliant music. You've got to work it constantly, clawing and hustling to get people to the next show, to finance the next record. How pedestrian. How droll. Why can't it just happen?
No, it would seem there are no rock n' roll fairytales anymore. Or are there?
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Jackson Scott, indie's newest prince charming. At the tender age of 20, Scott is already receiving more attention for his forthcoming debut, Melbourne than many musicians get in a lifetime.
When an artist blows up this quickly it's hard to hear their music from an unbiased position. Questions unfailingly arise: What's the deal? Is he really that f-in' good? Did Daddy pay the promo man (remember The Strokes)? Is this guy for real?
So, before we go on, let me just say, this record is good. Like, really good. Like, "I'm kinda freaked out that a kid who's been making music for a year did this by himself on a 4-track" good.
So, let's ignore the hype for a while.
First, the strength of Scott's songwriting is undeniable. Yea, there are some instrumentals here... but overall these songs stick with you. They have power, and with most of them clocking in at around the two minute mark, you won't get bored. Lyrically, Scott both flirts with and repudiates the kind of adolescent moodiness associated with the mopey 90's. Conversely, his musings also betray a connection to the well-fed and perpetually distracted iPhone generation.
Melbourne also offers plenty of rewards in its production. Scott has the hissy, tape, psych-pop thing down. He's experimental where he needs to be and hooky where it counts. These homespun recordings sound like early Ty Segall as produced by The Elephant 6 Recording Co. While Scott acknowledges Segall as an influence, he claims ignorance of the famed recording collective. That said, his misanthropic use of sped-up vocals suggests otherwise.
Melbourne opens with "Only Eternal", a wash of ambient guitar. This brooding intro slyly transitions into "Evie", with its sludgy, driving rhythm, Twilight Zone guitar hooks, and wavering harmonies. Peppy and short, "Sandy" is a druggy acoustic-pop highlight.
"That Awful Sound" is the song that gained Scott so much attention in the first place. Nothing if not a solid single, its strummed acoustics, booming rhythm, and pseudo-Chipmunk vocals are impossible to hear without thinking of Elephant 6. It's not surprising that the crew at Pitchfork (no doubt approaching middle age and feeling a little nostalgic) picked this track to be "the song". This kind of thing ruled all hell in 1998. If not the best track on the record, it is at least the most classifiable, and by extension the most marketable.
"Any Way"... is the high-water mark for Scott's pitch-shifted vocals. It's the kind of song Jackson Scott really sells. It's quick, melody driven, and vaguely flippant. With its toy marimba solo, it also exposes the childlike undercurrent running throughout this record.
"Together Forever" is one of my favorite songs on Melbourne. If you listen closely you can hear the famous background vocals from "Where is My Mind?" at the beginning. To me this is Jackson Scott playing it straight. His voice sounds like a real person and his noisy guitar swells are just as mind-bending as anything coming out of the current psych-revival.
"In The Sun" is reminiscent of the late Scott Miller's more stripped-down moments with Game Theory. The song's chorus reminds us of how much an inspiration Kurt Cobain is to Scott.
Notwithstanding the strength, charisma, and raw talent exhibited on Melbourne, it feels like Jackson Scott has skipped a few levels. Although Cinderella sometimes does well in sports and American Idol, Jackson Scott is going for something much weightier, much deeper. Dare we call it, legitimacy?

20 Years of Henry Street Music - The Definitive CollectionIncredible as it seems, this year marks twenty years since the launch of Johnny D'Mairo's Henry Street Music label. To celebrate, BBE is marking the occasion with a sumptuous five- disc CD retrospective, a fitting tribute to one of the most important of all house labels. This is one of the most extensive grand summations yet done of a dance label. Henry Street Music exemplified its era as much as Trax and Nu-Groove had theirs. Come the mid-'90s, the disco cut-up became ubiquitous, as thousands tried to emu late the success of Henry Street's first big killer, The Bucketheads' Tha Bomb -still a dancefloor staple two decades on. Many of the movers and shakers of the day had their best moments on Henry Street, and they're all here: Johnnick, Armand Van Helden, DJ Duke, DJ Sneak, Dirty Harry, Davidson Ospina, Todd Terry, Mateo and Matos, Brutal Bill, Josh Wink, even the UK's own Ashley Beedle, and many more -a veritable roll-call of the premiere-league of dance at the time, an era when dance music still seemed incredibly fertile and the link with its own past was still vital. Some of the American originals can struggle to get props among the countless mutations of house out there vying for attention in today's digitalized dance scene, but the real house-heads always knew to check them, and will recognize this as quality product, through and through. Henry Street (named after Brooklyn homeboy Johnny's neighbourhood) always had a 'New York' vibe, and even when drawing its producers from further afield, the label encapsulated the city's melting-pot of talent and raw, bristling energy... energy captured here, and exploding off these remastered tracks like it's 1999 all over again! Alongside the massive dancefloor anthems from the likes of Kenny Dope and Armand Van Helden are some real gems that got away, some exclusive mixes, and the thoughts of Johnny D, one of the prime-movers of the New York dance scene even before he came up with his own label, responsible for countless hits as promotions man and as dance A&R at Atlantic. Never one for the limelight, Johnny's own story is nonetheless inextricably bound up with the transition from disco through house to the ubiquity of dance music today. So... dust off those dancing shoes, and get ready to feel the heat, it's one more time for the Henry Street Hustle!LP1
