    Pulling Chain


    Colored Vinyl


    Anne's proper debut LP - "Pulling Chain" leads a dark and dirty dance oozing
    with gothic sexuality. Combining vibing, moody synths with thumping electronic back beats, Pulling Chain marks a change in form as frontman David Lindell
    continues Anne into electronic territory. His vocals dip and tease between a
    lusty, bellowing baritone and a playful falsetto. Maintaining post-punk rhythmic
    tendencies and stepping out of the reverbed cloudiness of previous work, Lindell
    emerges with a collection of songs that carry a grinding, primal urgency.

    Double Vision (Awaiting Repress) (On Sale)

    So much for sophomore jinxes that almost always go hand-in-hand with groups that explode onto the scene. Overflowing with first-rate songwriting, lascivious hooks, and sing-a-long choruses, Foreigners Double Vision lays waste to conventional sophomore-release wisdom and went on to actually exceed the popularity of the bands blockbuster debut. More than seven million copies and two Top Five singles later, the 1978 set still rocks with definite purpose.



    Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelitys collectible audiophile 180g LP of this longtime favorite classic-rock staple bursts with tremendous dynamics, soaring vocal timbres, bottom-end punch, and newfound instrumental separation. Sure, you may have heard songs such as Double Vision and Hot Blooded countless times, but trust us, youve never really heard them (outside of an arena setting, stadium amplifiers blaring) like this. You may just find yourself investing in a new power amp to get every last degree of detail thats been uncovered!



    Synonymous with AOR (album-oriented rock), Foreigner essentially perfects the style throughout this concise, focused, down-and-dirty ten-song set. The key to any memorable 70s rock record is a catchy single, and the quintet has several lying in the waiting. The title track, inspired by New York Rangers goalie John Davidson getting whacked in the head by a hockey puck, spills over with double-entendre meaning, tough-cut riffs, and a rotating groove, not to mention a mystical keyboard refrain. Equally memorable, and a permanent part of any radio stations rotation, Hot Blooded is the ideal come-on, the groups open-ended rhythm and dance-inspiring beats pouring with promise, salaciousness, and ass-kicking sexuality. A terrific power ballad infused with woe and longing, Blue Morning, Blue Day features insistent harmonies and piano notes that grab you by the collar and doesnt let go.



    Of course, great songs alone dont make for great records. The bands chemistry and performance needs to be on par with that of the material. And what else can be said of leather-lunged vocalist Lou Gramm and guitar-hero Mick Jones save for the fact the pair combine for a legendary one-two punch, leading their mates through sensational melodies and swaggering leads. Seldom has the balance between tough and polished, light and heavy, fun and reserved been better established and maintained.



    Ready to rock out? Wait until you hear Mobile Fidelitys analog remaster. Itll bring back (double) visions of hot stage lights, dry-ice fog, feel-good times, and amplifiers cranked to 10only this time, the experience will take place inside the confines of your own home. Check it and see!

    4everevolution

    Roots Manuva's brand new studio album, '4everevolution,' via Big Dada/Banana Klan, is just a few seconds under an hour long, consists of seventeen tracks and covers every style from wonky reggae through pop-funk, street spitting, straight up hip hop, sung ballads and epic death-disco. We think it's his very best work since Run Come Save Me. We're wondering (whisper it) whether it might be his best album... (sshh) ever.


    The album mainly revolves around Roots' own production and voice, with contributions from Banana Klan stalwarts including Ricky Ranking, DJ MK and Daddy Kope. In addition, on three tracks Mr Manuva introduces talented young singer Rokhsan. Other guests include Skin and Cass Lewis from Skunk Anansie, Elan Tamara and Spikey T. Production, meanwhile, comes from as far afield as Australia, Rodney Smith's travels allowing him to meet beatmakers and producers all over the world.


    Overall, though, the vision remains that of one man. Roots Manuva has honed his craft across four previous studio albums, picking up a MOBO, plus Brit and Mercury nominations along the way. This record, though, represents some of his freshest, most urgent work. Whether castigating politicians or himself, joking about girls or men in love with their computers, ruminating on the void at the heart of urban music or bigging himself up, crooning an apology or growling about loins, Roots Manuva remains one of the foremost lyricists and musicians of his generation.


    The first taste from this epic is already out and about in the form of Watch Me Dance. A dirty little funk ditty with its origins in Ricky Ranking's earliest live performances with the Manuva band, Rodney demoed the track 18 months or so ago and then gave the parts to Toddla T to see what he could do with them. They both agreed that the results sounded more like a Toddla T track than a Roots Manuva track, so that version gave Toddla's new album its name, but Rodney's own version is also out and about. To get the world at large in the mood for the record to follow, we're offering the chance to download Roots Manuva's version of Watch Me Dance for free. The download link is here: bigdada.com/rootsmanuva.


    Is Watch Me Dance typical of the album that follows? No, it isn't. This record is so varied that we couldn't really pick a track to represent it. Just treat is as representing one facet of the many facets of a great recording artist...

    Solid Gravy!

    Second album from one of the hottest garage rock''n'roll acts in London, setting clubs alight with their own red hot take on "the music the Sonics were listening to". Having spent a good year or more honing their set and finding out which songs make the girls dance (ie. all of them!), their debut LP, Music for Chicken, cemented the globe-spanning gang as the finest purveyors of Pacific Northwest rhythm and blues in the land. With new bassist Fernando on board, MFC Chicken have continued touring the world and found time to knock out a brand new album that is EVEN better than their debut.

    Big Smoke London Town

    The Dustaphonics occupy the space where the talented few, committed and bright, stick to their guns'. Some groups are capable of doing things more intensely than others. The Dustaphonics is a group that knows how to grab your attention and get people dancing. The music is a fantastic mash-up that details their musical influences, from booze-soaked 1950s rhythm and blues, vintage stomping 'buttshaker' soul, '60s garage rock and british beat / r&b, Vegas lounge, sleazy grind instrumentals and surf guitar. And the whole deal is sealed and delivered with the spirit of '70s punk. Although the influences are vintage, there is something remarkably and distinctively fresh and progressive about their songs that takes the music beyond simple imitation and infuses it with tremendous energy and passion.

    "The three-part harmonies are so big and bold and powerful they could knock down buildings
    the kind of songs that sound best while dancing on a bed, and we can easily imagine hearing [them] over the top of every rom-com film trailer over the next year" - Village Voice


    Recipients of the Village Voice's award for "Best Pop Band in NYC 2014", PARLOUR TRICKS has been hailed as "the perfect combo of pretty and gritty" (The Wild Magazine). Consisting of Lily Cato (Lead Singer), Morgane Hollowell (Vocals), DeeDee Golub (Vocals), Brian Kesley (Bass), Terry Moore (Drums), and Angelo Spagnolo (Guitar), Parlour Tricks creates a kind of indie pop symmetry that sounds "50's nostalgic, 90's familiar, and 2020 progressive all at once" (The Most Definitely). With their "punchy, infectious, danceable rhythms, clean
    guitar, dirty synth, and heavenly voices" (Village Voice) it's not too hard to see why Spotify took a shine to them, calling their sound "Vintage pop for the future."

    20 Years of Henry Street Music - The Definitive Collection

    Incredible 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!

    When Jackson emerged from the lingering disco after-smoke of the 'French Touch' scene that nurtured Daft Punk and Phoenix amongst others, Paris and the rest of the world were changing. Slowly and methodically, strands of music were moving from warehouse raves into the global mainstream and at the time of his debut Smash, in 2005, he and his Computer Band embodied the bleeding edge of this transition.

    LYFE


    Weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic, Brooklyn's
    Glass Ghost offers dance-friendly art pop.
    - TIME OUT NEW YORK


    ...that irresistible, disjointed mix of pop hooks and
    Beefheartian abandon.
    -VILLAGE VOICE


    ...an affecting, gently aspirated bedtime piece...In
    tune and percussion it struck me as the nocturnal

    - STEREOGUM


    ...a fractured bit of art-pop featuring...intoned
    falsetto over some spare production and airy beats.
    -PITCHFORK


    Since the release of their debut album Idol Omen in 2009, Glass Ghost's founding members Eliot
    Krimsky and Michael Johnson have kept busy. In addition to playing dozens of shows, including
    a tour with White Rabbits, Johnson joined Dirty Projectors as their new drummer, Krimsky has
    been collaborating with Here We Go Magic on keys, and the duo welcomed two new members to
    the group, Tyler Wood on keyboards and percussion, and Aerial East on vocals. Like their debut,
    LYFE was produced by Tyler Wood, who also produced Joan As Policewoman's 2014 album The
    Classic. For the LYFE recording sessions, the group recruited many of their friends to contribute, including Joan Wasser of Joan As Policewoman, Nat Baldwin of Dirty Projectors, and
    Christopher Tignor of Slow Six and Wires Under Tension. Pushing their songs to new levels by
    working with Brooklyn's musical elite is nothing new for Glass Ghost. They worked with more
    than a dozen of their friends from Brooklyn's music community, including Sharon Van Etten
    (who in 2011 noted "Eliot Krimsky is one of my favorite writers."), Here We Go Magic's Luke
    Temple, and Matt Iwanusa of Caveman, for their debut which was described by the New Yorker
    as "elegant compositions of frosted indie pop," and by Time Out New York as "weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic.


    On their new album LYFE, Krimsky (who's currently working on his M.A. in Media Studies at The
    New School, where he's exploring the convergence of technological mediation, identity and
    music) turns his observations of the absurd and mundane into metaphors about living in a
    world where every detail about your life is harvested, quantified, and used by marketing companies to manipulate your behavior. Rather than sounding didactic or overly intellectual, the
    songs provide windows into the band's internal world, as Krimsky's tender falsetto glides over
    the icy landscapes of synths, strings, woodwinds, and regal horns. As the product of Krimsky,
    Johnson, and Wood's mutual trust, vision, and relentless attention to every detail, LYFE masterfully blends airy, melancholy, and chilly atmospherics with Glass Ghost's irresistible bottom-heavy grooves and hooky pop sensibilities.

    Past Life


    Includes CD Of Full Album


    When Lost In The Trees set out to record Past Life, their
    third album for ANTI-, they knew they needed a break
    with the past. On their first two releases Picker had used an
    expanded six-member band to render his carefully composed,
    classical-inflected songs. For the new album, the band is pared
    to a lean electronic-rock four-piece; the arrangements are modern,
    spare, minimal, emphasizing groove and rhythm, blending the sonic architecture of 21st century electronic dance music, and the sensual swerve
    of post-Bowie 80s pop.


    The band made their next break with past practice by electing to work with
    an outside producer for the first time. Nicolas Vernhes, whose credits include
    breakthrough albums from Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors and Animal Collective, endorsed the band's new minimal aesthetic, and the
    question in the studio became, "How much can we strip
    away?" But fans that came to the band lured by the lush
    classicism of All Alone In An Empty House and A Church That
    Fits Our Needs (the Wall Street Journal's album of the year in 2012)
    will not be disappointed. The haunting lyricism of Picker's voice and
    melodies has not diminished in the new sparer approach, but instead rises
    to the fore, bringing out that timeless quality of the melodies that is the common
    ground of both folk and pop music. This pop quality, buried but always present
    in previous efforts, shines on Past Life; not pop in any trivial, retro sense, but the
    yearning lilt of Harry Nilsson or Mark Hollis, that floating melodicism that Relix
    found so "achingly beautiful."

    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


    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
    one of the radio stations 'East Los FM.'


    The sound of old Mexican cumbias, boleros and mariachi tunes scrambled with samples, effects and beats.

    Camilo Lara works the electro-dance scene like the James Murphy [LCD Soundsystem] of Latin America.

    " equal parts brain and soul, pairing tricked-out synth work with Motown-inspired dance
    grooves."
    - THE NEW YORKER


    After years of writing and performing, Ava Luna has refined their doo-wop soul meets
    punk-as-fuck aesthetic into something bold and glaringly defiant in today's indie
    music landscape. Following the release of their critically lauded first proper
    full-length Ice Level, the band spent an intense 2-week period writing and recording in
    upstate New York. Unlike previous efforts that were meticulously mapped out, the
    songs that would become Electric Balloon were a family effort. according to frontman Carlos Hernandez. For the new album, former Columbia composition student
    Hernandez relinquished the reins a bit, opting for a more organic approach to writing
    the material for what would become Electric Balloon. As Hernandez explains, it was a
    birth of confidence. I grew closer to my bandmates, began to see the roles of a
    family playing out. Ethan cooks dinner for all of us, we make lewd jokes, and then
    'after-dinner storytelling' takes the form of playing music.


    In the wake of Ice Level, Ava Luna's sharp edges have melted away just enough, making
    it easier to connect with their no-wave grooves and soaring harmonies. Distilling
    everything from James Chance and ESG to contemporaries like Dirty Projectors and Of
    Montreal, Ava Luna have landed on an aggressively unique sound that still manages to
    be accessible. Hernandez goes on to explain the stories and moments here are
    clearer, as in a conversation. The moment appears, you grab it with your hands, screw
    the lid on the mason jar. There was no tweaking, no second-guessing. Julian's mantra
    for the process: 'First thought best thought.' .And for my part, I sing my best about
    encounters, friendships, some moments beautiful and others painful. A bike shop
    manager in New Orleans, a derelict porch on Brighton Beach, a yellow sweater in a
    kitchen in the Catskills, a water duct in the New Mexico desert

    409

    Purple play pop music. Messy, dirty, raucous, grit-spitting, tequila-glugging pop music. They do not apologise for this. They have a big streak of it running skunk-like up their backs and through urgent tunes full of indie-punk snarl and piss and vinegar, but driven by grooves deep enough to rival any hop-hop classics. They are wrestling pop away from the world of vocoders, slick dance routines and coquettish airheads and bringing back to where it belongs: to the beach, to the house party, dancing on the table in that bar you need a fake ID to get into. They like to bare flesh and play until they bleed. Good things followed: a huge local following, two managers and endless touring.


    '(409)' is the name of the area code for their East Texas neighbour and the name of Purple's debut album produced by Chris 'Frenchie' Smith (...Trail Of Dead, Jet ). Recorded in El Paso, '(409)' is an album that's borne out of endless jams and no shortage of live shows where Purple offer a combination of the explosive and the celebratory. Instruments are abused and crowds are surfed; their shows are somewhere between the wild, fleshy abandonment of early White Stripes. "We're positive people," shrugs Busby. "We're always looking for the party somewhere. Or maybe we are the party."


    Pop is there in the 60s garage-influenced brilliance of 'Beach Buddy', a song propelled by a dual girl/boy vocal and the same endless summer joie de vivre of Ramones, Black Lips and Weezer . The chorus is an earworm that burrows deep. It's there too in 'Wallflower', a joyously uplifting song that flips the usual script and sees a girl ardently - some might say aggressively - pursuing an admirer through the upended bottles, overflowing ashtrays and tangled limbs of a party: "I'm a girl - you're supposed to be chasing me!" With definite shades of Bikini Kill and No Doubt it's the best femme-punk song we've heard in an aeon. 'Head On The Floor' meanwhile is a proto-grunge song that swings like early Hole and has a whole of soul.


    '(409)' is certainly an album with sand in its shoes and a rocket up its ass. It transports you to a better place. Listening to Purple quickens your pulse. Gives you the sweats. Has you reaching for a cold one. And then another. And then ten more. They make you feel alive. They are good for you.

    LP

    Discovery is the recording project of Rostam Batmanglij and Wes Miles, friends who began recording together in the summer of 2005. One year later they had committed themselves to their respective bands, Vampire Weekend and Ra Ra Riot, but nonetheless continued to record together when they both found themselves in the same city. The project is many things: it's partly an attempt to realize Wes' concept of a band where everyone plays synthesizers, and of Rostam's concept for an album where handclaps keep the backbeat instead of snares drums. It's an embrace and also a commentary on the pop music of the past decade, of booming 808 bass and jittery sixteenth note high-hats. Elements of European electronic dance music skittering in double-time over steady R&B. If soul music is secularized, sexualized gospel, Discovery is an attempt to see if soul music can survive being plasticized, roboticized, quantized, chopped, and finally, screwed. The album features Rostam and Wes each singing half the songs and guest vocals from Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend) and Angel Deradoorian (Dirty Projecters).

    Uzi Mahmood (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    NOW AVAILABLE ON CD!!! BRYN JONES died January 14, 1999. The man best known as MUSLIMGAUZE was 37 years old, and at the peak of his career. During his short life he recorded an astonishing number of albums, some 200 at last count so its no wonder new material continues to surface so long after his passing. Uzi Mahmood was recorded to satisfy a specific request. Soleilmoon wanted a 12-inch single that DJs could play in nightclubs. The idea was to introduce Muslimgauze to a potentially enormous new audience. Two weeks after agreeing to record a disco album for Soleilmoon, Uzi Mahmood was delivered to the label. But instead of the agreed on two or three tracks, he sent an eleven song compact disc, followed a week later by a 90-minute digital audio tape containing the entire CD plus two more pieces. Four songs were eventually selected for the experiment, and in the spring of 1998 a dirty-and-dubby 12-inch EP was released. Two more songs were later used to replace a pair of corrupted tracks on the master tape for Hussein Mahmood Jeeb Tehar Gass, released on CD in 1999. The music was well received by fans, but the hoped-for dance floor revolution never happened, and the little record with the unconventional beats went out of print a few years later. Fast forward to the present: The year is 2009 and the four-song EP has been out of print for more than five years, seven more songs lie waiting in the vault, still unreleased, and the two tracks tacked onto Hussein Mahmood Jeeb Tehar Gass are the only ones in wide circulation. Now available as a two CD set. Disc one has the eleven tracks from the original master, disc two has the two extra songs that came on the DAT.
