    Californication

    Ranked 399/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Californication is the seventh studio album by great American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers.



    It was released on June 8, 1999, on Warner Bros. Records and was produced by the much admired Rick Rubin.



    Californication marked the return of John Frusciante, who had previously appeared on Mother's Milk and Blood Sugar Sex Magik; to replace Dave Navarro as the band's guitarist. Frusciante's return was credited with changing the band's sound altogether, producing a notable shift in style from the music recorded with Navarro.



    The album's subject material incorporated various sexual innuendos commonly associated with the band, but also contained more varied themes than previous albums, including lust, death, contemplations of suicide, California, drugs, globalization, and travel.




    Californication is the Chili Peppers' most commercially successful studio release, with over 16 million copies sold worldwide, and more than 5 million in the United States alone. As of 2002, the album had sold over 4 million copies in Europe.



    The record produced several hits for the band, including Otherside, Californication and the Grammy Award-winning Scar Tissue. Californication peaked at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200. The record marked a significant change in style for the band, displaying a decidedly more spiritual rock n roll side.

    Working Class Dog

    Pressed On 180-Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Includes Insert


    Featuring The Classic No. 1 Hit Single Jessie's Girl


    Working Class Dog is the fifth studio album by Australian rock musician Rick Springfield, originally released in 1981. The album was certified Platinum in America and eventually sold over three million copies. It produced Springfield's biggest career hit with the #1 million-selling smash hit Jessie's Girl.


    Springfield was awarded the 1982 Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. Working Class Dog reached No.7 on the Billboard 200. Another top 10 single from the album was the Sammy Hagar-penned I've Done Everything for You.


    Love Is Alright Tonite was used to comedic effect in the film Wet Hot American Summer. Jessie's Girl is part of a prominent scene in the cult movie Boogie Nights.


    Rick Springfield has become somewhat of a cult hero in recent years, starring in several episodes of Californication in which he plays a twisted version of himself, a hedonistic Rick Springfield from the past. He also starred in Ho'ohuli Na'au, an episode of Hawaii Five-0 and had a recurring role on True Detective as a psychiatrist named Dr. Irving Pitlor.

    Soy Sauce

    Nacional Records is excited to announce the vinyl release of Mexican Institute of Sound's (M.I.S.) critically acclaimed,
    DJ-favorite albums 'Politico,' 'Pinata,' 'Mejico Maxico and 'Soy Sauce.'


    Their third album traverses Camilo Lara's wild musical imagination with a witty sense of humor for good effect - whether it's converting the traditional sounds of cumbia to a full on electronic dance track, paying tribute to J Dilla and Biggie with Mexican sonidos, or singing a love song as if Serge Gainsbourg had spent time in the Mayan jungle. Special guests include Ad-Rock (Beastie Boys), Mexican pop star Paty Cantu, Joselo Rangel (CafÉ Tacuba), and Brazilian singer Pat C.


    M.I.S. tours the world performing at major festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza, with a wide range of
    high-profile television and videogame uses, including HBO 'Entourage' & 'East Bound & Down,' as well as
    'Californication' and videogames like EA Sports' 'FIFA' and the new 'Grand Theft Auto V', for which he curated

    Pinata

    Nacional Records is excited to announce the vinyl release of Mexican Institute of Sound's (M.I.S.) critically acclaimed,
    DJ-favorite albums 'Politico,' 'Pinata,' 'Mejico Maxico and 'Soy Sauce.'


    Pinata proves to be the perfect title for the sophomore disc from Mexican Institute of Sound. It's got more colorful grooves and sweet surprises than you can shake, or swing, a stick at. One-man programming band Camilo Lara stuffs the disc with quirky samples and buoyant choruses that are decidedly Mexican but could reflect life from any corner of the globe. It's an electro-Technicolor take on world music. Killer Kumbia and Para No Vivir Desesperado come to life via chirpy cumbia grooves, as does much of the disc; and Lara effectively samples rock outfit CafÉ Tacuba during El Microfono. Lara's approach here is alternately serious and silly, combining nonsensical chatter with sly social statements. A Todos Ellos namechecks a long list of pop-culture icons, from Rocio Jurado, Sonny Bono, and R.L. Burnside, to Cantinflas, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and Oscar Wilde. The second half of the disc showcases more club-friendly grooves, and Pinata stand strong as an intriguing collection of pop revelry. - Joey Guerra

    Politico

    Nacional Records is excited to announce the vinyl release of Mexican Institute of Sound's (M.I.S.) critically acclaimed,
    DJ-favorite albums 'Politico,' 'Pinata,' 'Mejico Maxico and 'Soy Sauce.'


    Politico, the fifth full-length album by Mexican Institute of Sound (producer and songwriter Camilo Lara) is an album that almost wasn't. In 2011, an enormous amount of the explosive C4 was discovered next door to Lara's residence -- it was set to be detonated; by whom and for what purpose was never determined. In a recent interview, Lara said that he didn't deliberately set out to go into politics, but that politics had come to his house. These 13 songs, composed and assembled by Lara, address the chaos, destruction, tragedy, and violence that have become all-too-familiar elements in Mexican lives. Politico is a statement in the same way that the Clash's Sandinista! or the Sex Pistols' Never Mind the Bollocks were, but it isn't nostalgic. Nor is it sonically similar to either. Longtime fans of MIS may have some initial issues because there are vocals on almost every tune. But not only do they not they detract from the set's appeal, their urgent expressions add to it. While the topical nature of these songs is undeniable, it doesn't mean this isn't a fun record. Quite the opposite. Lara isn't didactic in his lyrics; these are personal observations, and in that way, carry more weight than slogans. His unique compositional style makes them musically irresistible, and compelling. He uses Mexico's and Latin America's folk forms -- cumbias, descargas, sons, corridos, mariachis, bandas, rancheras, cha-chas, rhumbas, pachangas, and more -- and hard welds them to slamming beats, layered melodies, and infectious keyboard grooves, all via a staggering yet organic-sounding mÉlange of samples from rock & roll, hip-hop, funk, house, disco, techno, etc. Check the wild marimba samples that introduce the melody to Tipo Raro, which originally appeared in the film Made in Mexico. Lara retains the melody throughout, but busts it from its context; he runs head-on into multi-tracked Farfisa organs, a deeply distressed beat, four-on-the-floor loops, rapping, and a brittle bassline that fires directly from the center. Especulando is a driving, funky electro jam. Es-Toy uses accordion and darkly tinged double trombones (à la Willie Colón), a pulsing organ, and chanted vocals. Despite its skittering dance beat and its mariachi horns, Más is pure, frenetic punk rock. Politico is easily the most sophisticated record in the MIS catalog. This is political music without apology; it's also frenzied dance party music that's virtually peerless. - Thom Jurek (All Music Guide)

    Shadows, Greys & Evil Ways

    The White Buffalo releases his new record 'Shadows, Greys, and Evil Ways' via Unison Music Group. NPR All Songs Considered has called songwriter Jake Smith "an amazing storyteller" and these 14 songs trace the life story of Joey White, a small town outsider who goes to war and returns home only to find more violence as he struggles to readjust to a life away from the front lines and reconcile with the girl he left behind.


    "I look at the whole thing as a love story," says Smith. "The beginning is their meeting, and because of his need and want to support her, he goes off to war, which starts his downward spiral."


    Recorded at LA's Unison Music Studios and produced by the Grammy-nominated team of Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, 'Shadows, Greys, and Evil Ways' sees the core trio of Jake Smith, bassist Tom Andrews, and drummer Matt Lynott joined by the likes of drumming legend Jim Keltner on "Don't You Want It" and ex-Jayhawk Jessy Greene.


    The White Buffalo has had songs included in both 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Californication,' and his new song "The American Dream" is included on the soundtrack to 'The Lone Ranger,' starring Johnny Depp, next month. Filter has said "influenced by musicians ranging from Bad Religion to Tom Waits, The White Buffalo is ready to break through and stampede into your speakers" and American Songwriter has praised his "deft songwriting chops and a booming whiskey voice."
