    MAXIMALISM

    Amaranthe, the cutting edge outfit with the triple lead vocal attack, will release MAXIMALISM via Spinefarm. It's a hyper-modern, metallic beast produced by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat). The band deliver tracks that fully live up to the bigger, bolder promise of the title. Refusing to be pinned down by genre or convention, Amaranthe have consistently pursued the less-travelled path, blending sounds & styles to create a signature hybrid approach.

    Pause

    Four Tets now classic albums of the electronic genre, Pause (2001) and Rounds (2003), are available again on gorgeously rich vinyl.



    Originally created as a side-project from his group Fridge, Kieran Hebden's solo work as Four Tet has explored cutting edge electronica using source material from jazz, folk and field recordings. His 2001 effort, Pause, explicitly borrows from the rich sonic firmament of '70s acoustic-based, instrumental music.



    Applying a dizzying array sample-driven manipulations and other DSP processes, Hebden utilizes his computer, not so much as an editing tool, but an improvisational instrument in its own right, summoning improbable electro-acoustic textures that appear to live and breathe in the same auditory space.

    Action-Refraction

    Action-Refraction marks bassist, compser and bandleader Ben Allison's 10th album and first collection of music composed by other artists. With nine critically acclaimed albums as a bandleader to his credit, Allison has solidified his rep as a cutting edge composer. To celebrate his 10th, he turned his ear towards the music of some of his favorite artists, creating an inspired, atmospheric, and at times art-rock mix tape featuring the music of PJ Harvey, Donny Hathaway, Thelonious Monk, Neil Young, Samuel Barber and Roger Nichols.

    Ventriloquizzing

    After two years experimenting in the shadows, cutting edge minimalist-funk heroes Fujiya & Miyagi are back with their darkest and most propulsive set yet. The band's fourth full-length, Ventriloquizzing has a dark heart, via its throbbing electro-glam beat and menacing lyrics. I think there's an underlying anger, or perhaps just annoyance, at institutions and people in general, and probably ourselves too, says singer/guitarist David Best. And it also seemed like the right time to work with someone else to help us avoid going to our default setting, which the band combated by bringing in a co-producer for the first time in the form of famed producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver, Pernice Brothers), their first time not self-producing. Written in Brighton, UK and recorded in Sacramento, CA; Ventriloquizzing is likely the first (and last) black comedy you can dance to.

    I Set My Friends On Fire have come a long way since their electro]hardcore cover of Soulja Boyfs gCrank Dath became an internet sensation in 2008. Their Epitaph debut You Canft Spell Laughter Without Slaughter both established them as a unique blend of boy]band pop, Timbaland elctrobeat and Grindcore, and placed them at the cutting edge of a movement that includes breakout bands like Attack Attack and I See Stars.


    Now comes their long anticipated second release, Astral Rejection, continuing the trajectory started with their debut, but finding the band experimenting with dubstep and IDM, and finding a heavier hardcore sound. Building on the successes of the first album, from their triumphant run on the 2010 Scream It Like You Mean It tour with Silverstein and Emery, to the 15 million Youtube views for their Smosh.com collaboration gSex Ed Rocks,h Astral Rejection will launch I Set My Friends On Fire to the stars and beyond.

    Back In The USA


    Ranked 451/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The incendiary Detroit quintet MC5 (the MC stood for "Motor City") burned briefly but brightly at rock's cutting edge in the late 1960s and early 1970s, building a reputation of high energy, high volume performances. They were seen as a hugely influential
    force on punk music and in the words of Rob Tyner (lead singer), MC5, "were Punk, before Punk...New Wave, before New Wave...Metal, before Metal... even "M.C" before Hammer."


    Released in 1970 Back in the USA was their first studio album, following their live debut Kick Out the Jams, it features covers of the classic Little Richard track 'Tutti-Frutti' and title track 'Back in the USA' by Chuck Berry.

    Missing In Action

    The first new Missing Persons studio album in over 25 years featuring the unmistakable voice of '80s new wave icon, influential lead singer Dale Bozzio.


    Such memorable hits as "Words," "Destination Unknown," and "Walking In L.A." made Missing Persons a household name in the '80s and a staple of early MTV thanks in part to the cutting edge fashion statements of Bozzio, which inspired the likes of Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Lady GaGa, and others.


    Written and produced by the multi-talented Billy Sherwood (William Shatner / Prog Collective) who worked closely with Bozzio to create an album that can stand alongside the rest of the Missing Persons catalog while bringing a modern twist that fans will appreciate.

    The Wild Places

    After two critically acclaimed albums showing his Renaissance influenced acoustic guitar picking, Duncan Browne went full-on electric half way through the Seventies with both his newly formed band Metro and several solo albums. It brought him near the cutting edge of the music industry and the closest he ever got to rock stardom, his records sought after in locales like New York's East Village and played on American college radio stations.


    The Wild Places is the first of these electric solo albums, featuring the hit single title tack. Originally released in 1978, the music has a sense of drama closer to Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music than his previous efforts. Featuring a fierce sound with lush keyboards and beautiful melodies, this is Browne at the top of his game.

    Walks For Motorists

    White Hills are proponents of psychedelia as transformation. The music made by Dave W. and Ego Sensation is risky and cutting edge, rooted in dystopian futurism and hyperconscious of society's constant desire for a new and better drug. That progressive aesthetic is at the heart of White Hills' newest album Walks For Motorists, a radically stripped-down record that emphasizes rhythm and groove. The album bursts forth with a new kind of intensity, one born out of laser-focused precision and detail-oriented songwriting. Possibly surprising to fans familiar with the Hawkwindian guitar squall of earlier albums, the songs on Walks For Motorists began as a keyboard melody or bass line, and several songs on the album don't even feature guitar at all. This is propulsive, open music, surreal to its core but made to inspire people to get out of their seats and move.

    Linda Ronstadt just couldn't lose. Another of her interpretive masterworks, 1977's stunning Simple Dreams continued a creative streak that found the singer turning out album after album of incredible material at an astonishing one-per-year rate until she finally began to come back down to earth in the early 1980s. Featuring an expanded palette of styles and cutting-edge narratives, Simple Dreams may go down in history as Ronstadt's greatest work.

On the Restoration 12, the band's cutting-edge cronies Four Tet and Born Ruffians join the fray, remixing 'Restoration' and 'Crossed Wires' from The Acorn's forthcoming full length album No Ghost, due 9/7/10 on Bella Union. Side A houses album highlights 'Restoration' and 'No Ghost.'

    Skunkworks (Pre-Order)

    Firmly established as a
    solo artist, Bruce could
    easily have settled into
    a cozy routine of pumping out sparky hard rock
    albums every couple of years, and keeping his still
    vast fanbase happy. Instead, he took a far more
    daring route, embracing the cutting edge alt-rock
    sound of the mid-'90s and conjuring the dark, gritty
    Skunkworks album in 1996. Named in tribute to
    the alias used by US aerospace titan Lockheed's
    Advanced Development Programs, the source of
    many legendary aircraft designs. "Skunkworks" was
    originally to be the name of Bruce's new band, but
    after concerns that the absence of the singer's name
    would limit the new project's potential, it became the
    album's title. Produced by underground rock legend
    Jack Endino, Skunkworks has stood the test of time
    incredibly well, Bruce's harnessing of less traditional
    heavy tropes, the vibrant performances of his young
    cohorts, and a generous sprinkling of sci-fi imagery,
    combining to thrilling effect, particularly on album
    highlights "Space Race," "Back From The Edge" and
    "Inside The Machine."

    In God We Trust

    With Grand Puba's departure shortly after the issue of the group's debut full-length, Brand Nubian as a trio
    was no more. Grand Puba went on as a solo artist while Lord Jamar and Sadat X (formerly Derek) kept the
    Brand Nubian name and released the amazing follow up In God We Trust. The album quickly silenced anyone
    who had any doubt that they would be able to follow up their debut classic with another classic as they did just
    that.


    "Allah U Akbar starts things off and was a clear sign that they were back in business in a very real way. Songs
    like "Pass the Gat" and "Steady Bootlegging" show the no nonsense style that had come to be expected from
    the Nubians, while "Love Me or Leave Me Alone" surprised all with how perfectly they blended the subject
    matter of woman and relationships, without it being corny. "Black Star Line", "The Travel Jam" and "Ain't No
    Mystery" all round out the album and are a perfect mix of cutting edge production and the five percent subject matter the group is known to espouse.


    The albums classic single, the Diamond D produced "Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down" was the cut that truly
    lit a fire under hip hop's collective rear-end. The album version of the song went hard but the remix utilized in
    the music video-confirmed that THIS Brand Nubian were here to stay.

    Bethlehem Records was a major jazz label in the 1950's formed by Gus Wildi with an impressive roster of artists including singers Nina Simone, Carmen MacRae, Chris Conner & Mel Torme, to name a few; arrangers: Marty Paich, Russ Garcia, Frank Hunter; and musicians including: Dexter Gordon, Roland Kirk, Charles Mingus, Frank Rosolino, Herbie Mann, Stan Levey, Art Blakey, Milt Hinton, Errol Garner, Zoot Sims, Duke Ellington, J.J. Johnson and many, many others. The label distinguished itself by giving artists creative control of their projects and presented albums of rather cutting edge graphic design. Its legacy is a lengthy discography that freshly and ambitiously captured and preserved an era of truly amazing music including West Coast Cool Jazz, East Coast Bop, and Vocalists. For many of the artists, their first or greatest recorded work happened at Bethlehem. By trusting its staff and artists to make their own creative decisions, to experiment, and thus to flourish, Bethlehem actively helped create and not just document a whole and diverse era of Jazz music.
    1960, when this album was recorded, was one of Zoot Sims' most productive years. The performances here are recognised as being the masterpieces of Sims' middle period.

    One of the most stunning debuts in rock history, and one of the definitive albums of the psychedelic era. On Are You Experienced?, Jimi Hendrix synthesized various elements of the cutting edge of 1967 rock into music that sounded both futuristic and rooted in the best traditions of rock, blues, pop, and soul. It was his mind-boggling guitar work, of course, that got most of the ink, building upon the experiments of British innovators like Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend to chart new sonic territories in feedback, distortion, and sheer volume. It wouldn't have meant much, however, without his excellent material, whether psychedelic frenzy (Foxey Lady, Manic Depression, Purple Haze), instrumental freak-out jams (Third Stone from the Sun), blues (Hey Joe), or tender, poetic compositions (The Wind Cries Mary) that demonstrated the breadth of his songwriting talents. Not to be underestimated were the contributions of drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding, who gave the music a rhythmic pulse that fused parts of rock and improvised jazz. Many of these songs are among Hendrix's very finest; it may be true that he would continue to develop at a rapid pace throughout the rest of his brief career, but he would never surpass his first LP in terms of consistently high quality.

    Directors Of Photography


    Vinyl Packaging Includes Full Color Gatefold Jacket With Spot Gloss Finish, Double Clear Vinyl, &
    Full Album Lyrics


    Dilated Peoples have released four acclaimed albums, toured extensively and enjoyed
    sustained success as solo artists. Now, after an eight-year hiatus, Dilated Peoples returns with
    Directors Of Photography, the group's remarkable debut album under the Expansion
    Team/Rhymesayers Entertainment banner.


    Evidence, Rakaa (Iriscience) and DJ Babu's new collection demonstrates how the group has
    been able to remain loyal to its signature sound, style and sentiment while adding new and
    dramatic artistic wrinkles to its already-extensive musical repertoire.


    With Directors Of Photography, Dilated Peoples shows it only improved during its hiatus,
    returning to a genre quick to dismiss veterans. "I think the statement we made this time around
    is that the three of us are still here standing, making quality Hip Hop from our hearts," DJ Babu
    says. "We never chased trends and we always stayed true to ourselves. Even with the changes
    in the music industry and the world, we still managed to stay cutting edge and classic and, in
    many ways, independent. This LP is very full circle for us."

    The Noise Made By People

    Broadcast will have their long out of print albums made available again through Warp Records on LP. This seminal catalogue encompasses the albums Work And Non Work, The Noise Made By People, Haha Sound, Tender Buttons, The Future Crayon and ...Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age.


    After being mired in the studio for nearly three years, Broadcast returned with their first proper full-length album, The Noise Made by People, a collection of more shimmering, weightless pop that is nostalgic for yesterday's visions of the future but remains on the cutting edge of contemporary music. Where their early singles (collected on 1997's Work and Non-Work) painted small, quaint portraits of their retro-futurism, The Noise Made by People delivers their sound in widescreen, filmic grandeur. Richly layered yet airy pieces like the album bookends, Long Was the Year and Dead the Long Year, seamlessly blend symphonic, electronic, and pop elements into smoky, evocative epics, while synth-based interludes such as Minus One and The Tower of Our Tuning present Broadcast's more detached, scientific side. Likewise, Trish Keenan's air-conditioned vocals sometime suggest a robotized Sandie Shaw or Cilla Black, but her humanity peeks out on Come on Let's Go and Papercuts. Echo's Answer and Until Then are two of the other highlights from the album, which despite all of its chilly unearthliness, is a noise made by (very talented) people.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary Mad Max franchise, comes Mad Max: Fury Road, a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky. An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.


    Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There's Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.


    The film's epic score is written by Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, a Grammy nominated and multi-Platinum producer, musician, and composer. Junkie XL's versatility puts him on the cutting edge of contemporary music, as well as in the vanguard of exciting new film composers. He is able to draw on his extensive knowledge of Classical forms and structures while keeping one finger planted firmly on the pulse of popular music. When this eclectic background is paired with his skill as a multi-instrumentalist (he plays keyboards, guitar, drums, violin, and bass) and mastery of studio technology, a portrait emerges of an artist for whom anything is possible.

    Manfred Mann's 1980 album is a strange mix of topical songwriting, progressive rock, and power pop -- from its opening seconds, the Earth Band is pressing serious messages and social commentary on their listenership amid swirling prog rock keyboards and catchy guitar hooks and choruses. The whole package is challenging in ways that should have put them on the cutting edge of rock music at the outset of that decade, but one suspects that Mann and company were too musically adept and sophisticated for their own good -- a little dumbing down and maybe a little less musicianship on display would have made them more accessible to the coming MTV generation. As it is, the album has held up remarkably well across a quarter century, however, even if it now seems an uncomfortably accurate warning of the way the world would go, in terms of politics and society, in the decades to come. It would also be three years before another Earth Band album was forthcoming, and that one would be steeped in world music sounds.
