    Everything Feels Better Now


    Limited Edition Pink / Lime Green Colored Vinyl


    "Drawing a bit from the Ben
    Gibbard school of vocalization,
    a little slice of pop perfection"
    - A.V. Club


    "With velvety vocal
    arrangements and punch lyrics
    that explore the abstract
    meanings of life and death
    Absent Sounds is barefaced,
    American alt-rock done
    exceptionally well." - Nylon


    From Indian Lakes return with their 3rd full length Everything Feels Better Now. The new full length was recorded with producer
    Kevin Augunas (Edwards Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Cold War Kids, Needtobreathe) at the legendary Sound City Studios
    a.k.a. Fairfax Recording. From Indian Lakes took a very different approach on this record with songwriter and singer Joey
    Vannucchi recording all instruments and vocals for the album. "I feel like I had to write a ton of songs before I could get to this
    sound, took time off from doing anything really. When it came time to record I wasn't sure what to expect. Every time I think I've
    gone as deep as I can, I peel back skin and discover another layer that's been there waiting. That's what this album is" Vannucchi
    said about making the record. Everything Feels Better Now picks up where Absent Sounds left off and adds an element of dream
    pop to an already expansive sound.

    Now That Everything's Been Said

    We all know the Carole King who wrote some of the biggest hits of the '60s, from "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" to "Pleasant Valley Sunday," via "The Locomotion" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." We also know the singer-songwriter behind Tapestry, the album that launched King as a solo singer in her own right. But in between-and not nearly as well known-is King's band, The City, and their album, Now That Everything's Been Said.


    By the mid-'60s, King's marriage to Gerry Goffin, with whom she'd written many of those wonderful hits, had hit the rocks. A divorce loomed, and King all but retired to raise their two daughters. She headed west to Laurel Canyon in '67, taking the children with her, and made the previously unlikely move of joining a progressive folk-rock band. King formed The City with future husband Charles Larkey on bass and Danny Kortchmar on guitar and vocals. With King on piano and vocals, they created a folk rock sound that pre-empted the singer-songwriter boom of the '70s.


    Produced by Lou Adler and featuring Jimmy Gordon on drums, The City's sound is deep and soulful, imperfect but passionate. And the songs, with King writing or co-writing all but one, are as exceptional as you'd expect and as widely covered as her factory work. "Now That Everything's Been Said" was a hit for American Spring, "A Man Without A Dream" was tackled by The Monkees, and "Hi-De-Ho (That Old Sweet Roll)" was a hit for Blood, Sweat & Tears. Central to the album's appeal is King's own stirring reading of her track "Wasn't Born To Follow," covered masterfully by The Byrds for the Easy Rider soundtrack.


    King had been used to a life on the sidelines, and her stage fright left the trio unable to tour the LP which adversely affected their fortunes. That, plus some behind-the-scenes distribution problems, meant the album was quickly deleted, and it remained so for the next thirty years-partly at King's request. Even so, its failure was a surprise to those concerned. "I was 26 when Now That Everything's Been Said was released in 1968," King says of the album. "[We] expected it to zoom to the top of the charts within, at most, a few weeks. Individually and together, we optimistically imagined the album's success as if it had already happened. Danny and Charlie kept telling each other, 'It's a great album. The City is gonna be Number 1 with a bullet!'


    Listening now, you can feel the threads that lead to Tapestry and to the hugely successful performing career that followed. It's not so much an oddity in King's work as the missing link between her two lives. Reissued here in deluxe vinyl, this is, at long last, a chance to own this lost album.

    The Search For Everything

    On his 10th album, The Search For Everything, John Mayer meditates on getting older. "Time's been talking to me/Whispering in my ear," he sings on "Changing," a wistful song about embracing life's complexities. While some of the album's songs read like diary entries from a man in reflection, others display a forward momentum. Shrugging off some of that inner torment in the name of fun, The Search For Everything is loose, lively, and delightfully diverse, finding him dabbling in funk, folk, blues, and soul, with support from the John Mayer Trio.


    It's taken John Mayer two decades to sound this peaceful, and now, he wants us to go with the flow, too.

    Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything


    Marks The 15th Anniversary Of The Band, Founded And Led By Efrim Menuck Of Godspeed You! Black Emperor


    First New SMZ Full Length Since GYBE's Return To Action In 2011


    Recorded In Quebec By Greg Norman (electrical Audio)


    Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra (SMZ) has traced a barbed-wire arc of
    genre-defying protest music since its inception in 1999. Formed by Efrim Menuck, with
    Thierry Amar and Sophie Trudeau, the initial iteration of the band was a predominantly
    instrumental trio that forged a more intimate and ragged chamber-punk than Godspeed
    You! Black Emperor, in which group all three founding SMZ members also played (and
    continue to play). Through seven albums from 2000-2010, SMZ expanded its line-up and
    shifted towards an increasing use of lead and group vocals, with Menuck penning politically charged lyrics to anchor long-form multi-movement compositions that juxtaposed electrified
    guitars against a 4-piece string section of violins,cello and contrabass.


    Most recently, SMZ has pared back to five players, with Menuck's massive spectrum spanning electric guitar sound emerging as the spine around which two violins, bass (now
    more often electric than acoustic) and drums are deployed. SMZ have managed a handful
    of short tours in the past couple of years (in the gaps between GYBE commitments) and
    as anyone who has seen the band in its recent incarnation can attest, their current sound
    is more honed, laser-guided and bone-rattling than ever, melding hardcore, blues, garage
    and dark metal influences that have nothing to do with anything so quaint as "post-rock"
    (a tag the group has always and rightly rejected).


    Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything is the first definitive document of
    the band's newfound sound and style as a quintet. It's also their first single LP-length
    work since the band's debut record as a trio almost 15 years ago, and features road tested pummeling rock-outs "Fuck Off Get Free (For The Island Of MontrÉal)", "Take
    Away These Early Grave Blues" and "What We Loved Was Not Enough" alongside the
    previously unheard lullabyes/minuets "Little Ones Run" and "Rains Thru The Roof At Thee
    Grande Ballroom (For Capital Steeze)" and the album centerpiece "Austerity Blues" with
    its closing lyric "Lord let my son live long enough to see that mountain torn down"
    sung in varying incarnations throughout the second half of this 14-minute epic.


    This lyric in many ways encapsulates Menuck's unflinching take on a world replete with
    shabbiness, greed and injustice, seen through the lens of parenthood, mortality, endurance
    and defiance. There are few other musicians who deliver social critique with the courage
    and honesty of lines like "All our cities gonna burn / All our bridges gonna snap / All our
    pennies gonna rot / Lightning roll across our tracks / All our children gonna die". Feel-good
    music this is not; but neither can it reductively be tagged apocalyptic or world-weary.
    Fuck Off Get Free rages with scorn and with hope, utterly passionate but pointedly
    unromantic. Thee Silver Mt. Zion once again demonstrates, like few other bands working
    today, that there is much to fight for and against, and plenty more fight songs to sing.

    3. Take Away These Early Grave Blues

    Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?

    They say there's no time like the present; what they really mean is there's no such thing as the present. Five seconds into the future will be five seconds in the past once you finish reading this sentence. Translated into rock 'n' roll, terms, it means you're either ahead of your time or past your prime. And we're cool with that. We like categories and demographics and timelines because they allow us not to think; everything can be explained with the check of a box or a dot on a graph. But Metric don't let you off that easy. Their measures are decidedly cubist: eternal, multilayered portraits of instantaneous moments, the luminous blur of street life rendered as a freeze-tableaux, daily rituals portrayed in a fantastical light. This is music born out of sly, considered observation instead of gratuitous introspection - which makes it refreshingly anomalous in an era when so much popular music fudges the line between self-absorption and self-parody. Their debut album, OLD WORLD UNDERGROUND, WHERE ARE YOU NOW? launched Metric's career and helped to usher in a wave (or New Wave) of Canadian indie bands such as Broken Social Scene and Arcade Fire. They have since gone on to sell over a million singles and 500,000 albums worldwide.Finally available on vinyl, the album sounds as urgent and timeless today as it did in 2003 and like all of Metric's music to date, OLD WORLD UNDERGROUND, WHERE ARE YOU NOW? isn't so much a summation of influences as experiences. The old world underground they so romanticize; they're not sure if it ever truly existed.

    Movie Music Volume One

    From their inception in 1993, Braid released nearly as many songs on 7's, split 7's, and compilations as on its three albums. The idea of finding all of the original masters to the songs and releasing them was conceived by Braid as early as 1997. Movie Music Volume One is a complete collection of songs from the group's many 7 singles. Braid was notorious for keeping much of their best material off of the full-length releases, so this collection is of no small interest. Like volume two, Movie Music, Vol. 1 is chronologically sequenced, thus allowing listeners an opportunity to chart the band's growth. Established fan favorites like I'm Afraid of Everything and Now I'm Exhausted are not only release highlights, but also career standouts. Available here as a deluxe double gatefold 180g edition for the first time. Includes liner notes, rare photos and lyrics.

If Ruined was their declaration, Violence Violence is their first wave assault, a soundtrack to wage war. A war against everything that hardcore has stood against, but now has been co-opted into its ranks. There's no TRL song on here, there's nothing that'll be heard at a school dance.

    Donald Fagen's (one half of Steely Dan),  fourth solo album for Warner Reprise, Sunken Condos, will be released on October 16. His first three solo albums, The Nightfly, Kamakiriad and Morph the Cat comprised the project known as the Nightfly Trilogy. Sunken Condos begins a new chapter in in the creative evolution of this innovative artist, whose career is still going strong after forty years.


    The nine tracks on Sunken Condos were co-produced by Michael Leonhart and Donald. All but one track, an Ashkenazi recasting of Isaac Hayes' Out of the Ghetto, are new Fagen originals. Some familiar names from the Steely Dan family of players are on hand (Jon Herington, the Steely Dan horns, Freddie Washington) plus some new faces. The word is that, from now on, everything Donald does has got to be funky.

    1000 Palms

    1000 Palms marks a return to Surfer Blood's DIY ethos. Abandoning the big time
    studio, the band decided to head back home to self-record and self-produce their
    third full-length album. Free of major-label-influence, Surfer Blood has delivered a
    uniquely compelling album, unlike anything in their catalog.


    The story of 1000 Palms began on January 1st 2014, after playing a New Year's show in
    Portland, OR. The band decided to stick around for the rest of the month, renting a
    practice space and sorting through a backlog of ideas. By February, as their lease ran
    out, Surfer Blood had recorded demos for most of the tracks that are now featured
    on their third LP.


    After a frustrating time at their previous home, Warner Brothers, the quartet was
    beyond ready to return to a more DIY recording process, completely void of the
    middlemen scrutinizing every bar of previous LP, Pythons. With the band
    self-recording, it was in the glamorous setting of an attic studio above a doctor's office
    where drums were committed to tape. Of the work, frontman John Paul Pitts states
    "fortunately none of us are strangers to DIY recording, so this seemed like the kind of
    challenge well-suited to our band".


    The making of 1000 Palms also owes a lot to the kindness of friends and family, with
    the remaining instrument sessions taking place at the home of drummer Tyler
    Schwartz's parents, while they were on vacation. Following a few days of very little
    sleep and after the band pooled resources and called in favors, the band had
    managed to craft everything you now hear on the upcoming record.

    Smoke Ring For My Halo

    Philadelphia singer/songwriter Kurt Vile returns with his second proper album (2008s Childish Prodigy was a compendium of sorts). Smoke Ring For My Halo is a gorgeously layered record. Ranging from the tender breezy folk in Jesus Fever to the tuff urban guitar riff of Puppet To The Man, Viles distinctive Philly-accented vocal ties together a sweeping and evocative project, a true American psychedelic folk album.


    This is no pastoral listening experience however, when Vile sings, society is my friend: he makes me lie down in a cool bloodbath, he sounds both exhausted and distanced from the ringing harmonics of his guitar and Mike Zanghis pounding drums. Even the gentler songs, such as On Tour and Babys Arms have a distinctly dark lyrical tone. The closest that Vile gets to some kind of acceptance is in the central track, the rueful In My Time, where he sings, I know when we get older, Im dying, but I got everything I need here now, and thats fine, now...thats fine.


    Recorded at the Magic Shop by John Agnello, Smoke Ring For My Halo is a massive step forward for one of the countrys most beloved rock songwriters.

    Sweeten The Distance

    The first line of the title track on Neal Casal's tenth studio effort Sweeten The Distance says much about where the storied singer/songwriter/guitarist finds himself in his career: Nothing's gonna stop you now, everything you want is coming in good time. After 20-plus years of writing songs, recording albums and touring the world, there's a confidence and patience in his latest work that reveals an artist in full creative flight.


    Produced by Thom Monahan (Fruit Bats, Devendra Banhart, Vetiver), Sweeten The Distance is indeed a defining moment in Casal's discography. Rich acoustic textures and sophisticated melodies of songs like Bird With No Name, and Need Shelter and Gyrls of Wynter give way to a psyched-out ambience on White Fence Round House, Feathers for Bakersfield and How Quiet It Got.


    The depth of production, with its purposefully layered sounds and oceanic atmospherics, makes Sweeten The Distance as much a multi-dimensional headphone experience as a soul-stirring modern songwriter record. And as such, Casal emerges as an essential voice in the new cosmic California movement.


    In addition to his critically acclaimed solo work, Neal Casal made a name for himself as the lead guitarist in Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, with whom he recorded four albums: Easy Tiger, Follow the Lights, Cardinology and III/IV. Currently he serves as a central component of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood with whom he contributes lead guitar and vocal harmonies. Over the last year, Casal also added guitar and vocals to Ryan Adams Ashes & Fire, Fruit Bats Tripper, The Jayhawks Mockingbird Time, Vetiver The Errant Charm and a forthcoming recording by Beachwood Sparks.

    Victory Lap (Pre-Order)

    The first thing to know, if you want to know about Propagandhi, is that they came here to rock. Right from the snarling opening riff of their seventh album,Victory Lap, that much is clear. For everything else that swirls around the band now, and for the last 31 years - the politics, the people and, lately,a gnawing sense of despair - the sheer volume of it all hasn't changed.

    Frontman Chris Hannah and bassist Todd Kowalski experienced a big change in the band when after nine years with Propagandhi, guitarist DavidThe Beaver Guillas left the band for a teaching position and the band added a new member , Sulynn Hago, a seasoned guitar-slinger from Tampa,Florida. (That said, Guillas is still all over Victory Lap, contributing licksto four songs.)

    So what do you do, when you're an unapologetically political band in a time when political speech seems more fractured than it has been in years? When the darkness looms and the rapacious maws of power seem to devour more by the day? You can't stop the violence; you can't save the world. But neither can you stand to sit back, and just watch it all burn. So here's what you do: you strap up a guitar and get ready to rock.

    Standing In The Way Of Control

    The first thing that strikes you is the rhythm. The Gossip have been making punks dance since they debuted 5 years ago, long before dance punk existed. Soulful and jagged, you can hear everything from Dischord to Motown in Brace's playing. Now, with the addition of new drummer Hannah Blilie (Shoplifting, ex-Chromatics) they have a new thundering beat for the kids to dance to on the corners and in the clubs.


    The next thing that smacks you is Beth's voice, all the guttural blues of the South is in that inimitable instrument. It resonates with the confidence that is in her lyrics asking people to hold on just a little bit longer, re-assuring the youth that there are others out there, and spitting in the face of all who say otherwise!


    Standing in the Way of Control, their third album, was recorded by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi) at Seattle's Bear Creek. From heartbreakers like ''Coal to Diamonds'' to the anthemic title track, released as a single with a Le Tigre remix, the band is unafraid to put it all out there and take their audience to new places. This is the sound of a band destroying and surpassing all expectations placed on them.

    Holy Fuck took the world by surprise around 2005 because there was
    just nothing like them-a hardcore thrift-store found-object punk
    band with a relentless commitment to rhythm and a sense for
    atmosphere better matched to a close encounter of the third kind
    than a simple rock concert. Think EinstÜrzende Neubauten re-inspired
    by Fela Kuti with Brian Eno working as keyboard tech and every
    channel on the mixer set to max power. It was the best ride out there
    while it lasted, up to and including their 2010 full-length Latin,
    recorded largely in too-brief breaks while on the road. That album
    cemented Holy Fuck's sound and reputation for unapologetic
    instrumental noise but at the end of yet another insane touring cycle,
    it was time to take a break which turned into a hiatus which turned
    into a chance to explore other projects and production work. (Like the
    bands Lids, Dusted and Etiquette, or production for Metz, Alvvays and
    Viet Cong.)


    They'd been moving faster than they'd ever expected, especially after
    a 2007 sophomore release that came close to securing Canada's
    prestigious Juno and Polaris Music Prize. (Not to mention festival slots
    at All Tomorrow's Parties, Glastonbury, Coachella and more-plus Lou
    Reed said they were the best band he'd seen at SXSW.) The strategy
    was just to stay busy, says founder and noisemaster Brian Borcherdt,
    but soon they started to feel like Indiana Jones running from that
    boulder: "He had to step aside and let things settle!"


    But there's nothing Indiana Jones does better than the shock reveal, is
    there? And so in 2016 Holy Fuck suddenly announced the release of
    Congrats, a surprise full-length two years in the making that is by any
    scientific measure their holiest fuckiest release ever: "When you're
    sitting still in a van and staring out the windows, you start to dream
    about all the other things you want to do," says Borcherdt. "This album
    is exactly what we couldn't do then."


    Checking into a "proper" studio, rather than the barn in rural Ontario
    where most of Holy Fuck's records were made, Congrats was
    recorded by the same lineup that recorded Latin: Borcherdt, Graham
    Walsh, Matt "Punchy" McQuaid, and Matt Schulz. As they worked, they
    discovered that Congrats was a process of refining things, Walsh
    says-both physically and philosophically. Their ad hoc arsenal of
    low-budget hi-tech toys has been streamlined down to what he calls
    the nervous system of the band: "What gets run through our system is
    the seed of the idea for our music, and the system is what we play. This
    record is almost a beginning-the first stage of a new way for us."


    So consider those previous albums prelude to Holy Fuck's true
    breakthrough, and recognize Congrats as the moment when Holy
    Fuck take the chaos and craziness (and charm) that have always been
    at the heart of their band and not so much control it as concentrate it.
    Now they're heavier, wilder, leaner, sharper, more daring and more
    unpredictable than ever before, on fire with the power of inspired
    outsiders like Suicide, Silver Apples, Can, Mission of Burma or the
    Monks or even Sun Ra, says Borcherdt, whose pursuit of his own kind
    of musical purity is exactly what Holy Fuck are after. Yes, it took them
    a few years, which in 2016 is supposed to be the career suicide, but
    they took that time to take chances. "We were told we did everything
    wrong," Borcherdt says now, laughing-but really Congrats is the
    sound of a band doing absolutely everything right.

    Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 in F Major, Op. 68 (Columbia Symphony Orchestra) (45 RPM) (Pre-Order)

    The Famed Recording Returns In A Premier Vinyl Reissue From Analogue Productions


    Now Cut At 45 RPM On 2LPs


    Mastered From The Original 3-track Tapes By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound


    Deluxe Gatefold Tip-On Jacket From Stoughton Printing With Rare Photos


    200-Gram LPs Pressed At Acoustic Sounds' State-Of-The-Art Pressing Plant, Quality Record Pressings


    Bruno Walter helped shape the very essence of interpretive style among conductors. Walter's rendition of Beethoven's sixth symphony is perhaps the greatest ever recorded - his reading of the score comes off sounding like a piece of literature or poetry, but that is a great thing and perfectly blends with the music to create a benchmark recording.


    And here, once again, Analogue Productions has taken a classic and shaped it to make the premier reissue of this famed LP. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound mastered this album from the original analog tapes. The cut lacquers were plated and pressed to 200-gram vinyl by our own Quality Record Pressings. The Stoughton Printing old-style tip-on gatefold jacket has been upgraded handsomely by a series of rarely-seen photos of Walter from the Sony Music Archives. Everything about this reissue radiates quality.


    Now with Analogue Production's 45 RPM release, the best-sounding version of this historic album gives listeners an even richer sonic experience. The dead-quiet double-LP, with the music spread over four sides of vinyl, reduces distortion and high frequency loss as the wider-spaced grooves let your stereo cartridge track more accurately.


    Written in 1808, Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 in F Major (Pastoral), Op. 68, is deemed one of the most influential by the famed composer. Unlike the vast majority of assumed names by which his works have become known, Beethoven directed from the very outset that his sixth symphony be titled Pastoral Symphony, or a recollection of country life. It was a musical approach to the forces of nature that inspired Beethoven.


    Walter's late life was marked by stereo recordings with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble of professional musicians assembled by Columbia Records for recordings.


    Originally released in 1958, this recording still sounds fresh, with a broad soundstage, persuasive depth, and a remarkable sense of air and presence. Simply because of Walter's vibrant, fluid interpretation, taking into account both variable tempi and heightened accents, the result is one of the most passionate, awe-inspiring recorded versions of this symphony that's ever been recorded.

    Ascension Heights (Pure Pleasure)

    At the pimply age of 15, Surrey-born Anthony 'Top' Topham stepped onto stage in May 1963 at the Eel Pie Island Club in Twickenham with his new blues-wailing band - The Yardbirds. A few months later he was replaced with Eric Clapton and after that a certain Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page also joined that volatile crew. When you consider what a staggering influence Cream, Beck and Led Zeppelin have had on everything in rock then and now - it's a damn shame that Top Topham got musically lost in the mix somehow and has never been given the catalyst credit he so deserves.



    The album Ascension Heights has always been a £100+ vinyl rarity, so its reissue here is to be welcomed. But it has also divided Blues purists for years because - for a blues label release - it's a slightly strange record! Firstly it's entirely instrumental - and not in a blues way either. It doesn't seem to quite know what it is. One minute it has the playfulness of Django Reinhardt jazz noodlings on Spider Drag, the next minute it's Sixties Chet Atkins on Globetrottin', the next second its funky Blood, Sweat and Tears without the vocals on the brass filled Mini-Minor-Mo. It also features Pete Wingfield on Piano. There are even times on Hot Ginger where it sounds like a soulful version of Fleetwood Mac's debut album! A heady mix to say the least! It's a varied album, daring in its choices and remember - most are original songs by Topham. Ascension Heights is a grower that bears repeated listening.



    Attention: Both sides of this LP were cut at 45rpm.

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    The Genius Sings the Blues (On Sale)

    Numbered Limited-Edition 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity



    1961 Collection Gathers 12 Must-Have Songs from Charles' Peak Era



    Mobile Fidelity Has Righted the Sonic Wrongs That Plagued Earlier Versions - You Won't Find a Better-Sounding Ray Charles LP



    Genius doesnt even begin to describe the greatness of The Genius Sings the Blues. Comprised of a dozen songs Ray Charles made between 1952 and 1960, the collection was released in 1961 by Atlantic Records to counter the singers migration to rival ABC Paramount. What Atlantic originally underestimated is that the album contained many of Charles greatest works, all unified by their bluesy emotions and stirring arrangements. A classic of the soul and R&B canon, The Genius Sings the Blues is a snapshot of the evolution of timeless American music captured by the pianists indelible rhythmic pace, gospel roots, jazz backgrounds, and Southern-styled accents. And its never sounded so good.



    From the iconic cover art (a photo of Charles taken by legendary photographer Lee Friedlander) to the distinguished music within, everything about the thematic record is iconic. Now, nearly 50 years later, it can be heard in pristine fidelity sourced from the original mono master tapes. Mobile Fidelitys engineers have taken great pains to ensure that every clink of the piano keys, ache of Charles rolling voice, and rush of the backing arrangements sounds better than they have since first being recorded in the studio. This 180g LP simply lays waste to the competition.



    Previous editions of The Genius Sings the Blues, including a remastered digital edition from Rhino, suffered from varying levels, distracting static and noise, and inconsistent vocal balances. Mobile Fidelity has gone back to the original mono master tapes to correct these problems, giving music lovers what is now unquestionably the best-sounding Charles album to stem from his peak era. And these performances are simply on fire.



    Whether inhabiting the sadness in Night Time (Is the Right Time) or personifying the loss of Hard Times, Charles invests each song with supreme emotion and undeniable conviction that makes the lyrics ring true and the blues resonate with cathartic pathos. Uptempo country blues numbers (Im Movin On, Early in the Mornin) balance the mournful slow fare, and again prove Charles a master composer, interpreter, and musician who could make any style his own. The Genius Sings the Blues also speaks to legendary jazz pianist Billy Taylors initial impressions of Charles upon hearing him in a way in which few other Charles recordings do.



    Taylor recalled: While playing through some new music for a projected Ruth Brown record date, I was asked to listen to an original song played and sung by a young composer and pianist from Seattle, Washington. I can still remember how surprised I was to hear this kind of music from a Northwesterner. He reminded me of Charles Brown, another pianist-singer who was very popular in the Forties, but he had a very personal sound and there was something different about his rhythmic approach. In his handling of melody he seemed to be using devices similar to those used by Dinah Washington and a small group of popular singers who allowed their gospel singing backgrounds to influence their interpretation of popular songs... I was intrigued by the emotional quality projected by both his piano playing and his unusual voice and was not surprised when Ahmet ErtegÜn said that he wanted to let the young musician record some of his own material. He communicates just like the old blues singers, Ahmet said.



    Indeed, that innate blues aesthetic dominates this collection, as does Charles distinctive rhythmic mannerisms. Finally, hear them as theyve always been intended to be experienced.

    Binary

    "My last record was very inward-looking," says Ani DiFranco. "I was pregnant and then raising a screaming infant. But now that kid is about to turn four, so I got out of the weeds of personal space and started looking outward again, being more engaged, more big 'P' Political. As an artist, I like to be out in the world, and what initially compelled me was to try to push society to a better place. So when I'm not in heartbreak or motherhood mode, that's where you'll naturally find me."

    With her twentieth studio album, Binary, the iconic singer/songwriter/activist/poet/DIY trendsetter returns to territory that brought her to the world's attention more than twenty-five years ago. One of the first artists to create her own label in 1990, she has been recognized among the feminist pantheon for her entrepreneurship, social activism, and outspoken political lyrics. At a time of global chaos and confusion, DiFranco is kicking ass and taking names, with a set of songs offering a wide range of perspective and musical scope.

    She describes a moment during the writing of "Play God," an unblinking pro-choice battle cry, as a particular breakthrough. (A live version of the song was included in the anti-Trump "30 Days, 30 Songs" campaign alongside tracks from Death Cab for Cutie, Aimee Mann, Franz Ferdinand, and more.)

    "When I wrote the line 'You don't get to play god, man/I do,' I paused and thought, 'Can I say that?,' " she says. "It's not the first time I've thought that, but it's been a while. And in that moment, I thought, 'I'm back, mothafuckas!'"

    "When you make a record about family and relationships, people assume you're mommy now and you've lost your edge, and it's going to be all buttercups from here on. So that line had the feeling of 'Take that! My kid is sleeping right now and I want to talk about some shit!"

    On Binary, DiFranco tackles the challenge and necessity of teaching non-violence with "Pacifist's Lament" and the need for empathy in "Terrifying Sight." Remarkably, though, these songs-recorded, in her usual fashion, in a couple of short full-sprint sessions spread across several years-were all written prior to the 2016 elections and attendant political turmoil.

    "I'm not surprised," says DiFranco. "Over twenty-five years, I've found that my songwriting is often full of premonition. It shows me, in a deep and spooky way, how we know things on levels below consciousness. I write songs and then they happen, and later I realize what they're about. I'm just happy to have some good tools in my toolbox to address what's happening now-the feminist diatribes are turned up nice and high on this record!"

    She notes that Binary's title track is key to her intention on this project. "I always title a record from the song that seems to be at its core," she says. "An underlying theme in the songs, and in the feminism I want to engage society with, is the idea that autonomy is a fallacy-nothing exists except in relationship to something else. We are, in some senses individuals with individual liberties and unique powers, but that's only a surface story."

    Though this concept is closely tied up in our present-day obsession with technology ("Sitting alone at home, staring at a screen, you can't really know anything, because knowing is engaging," she says), DiFranco also reveals a growing connection to nature and the physical world.

    "Every year on Goddess' Green Earth, I understand my relationship to it more," she says. "My early songs were all human drama. I don't think I noticed the bigger picture at all-I was transfixed by power dynamics between people. Now I see that it's largely the providence of women to really embody nature, so I do think I'm getting back to basics, and it's a shift for me."

    The backbone of Binary's sound is DiFranco's long-time rhythm section of bassist Todd Sickafoose and drummer Terence Higgins, but on much of the album, the trio is augmented with some all-star guests. "I knew I wanted to involve some of my brilliant friends this time out," she says. "We made some calls and got a party going. That was the idea, to reach out and have some other spirits enter."

    Virtuoso violinist Jenny Scheinman and keyboard wizard Ivan Neville both join in for more than half of the record; "they are so captivating and they elevate my shit whenever they come near it," says DiFranco. Other contributors include the legendary Maceo Parker, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, and Gail Ann Dorsey, longtime bassist for David Bowie. New Orleans resident DiFranco takes special pride in the Crescent City funk spearheaded by natives Higgins and Neville on a number of the tunes. "Their souls are of this place," she says. "The feel they bring is something they got in utero."

    For the better part of 2016, DiFranco beat the drum for voter turnout on her "Vote Dammit!" tour, focusing on registering and inspiring people to vote. In the days following the election, fans turned to her for guidance with renewed earnestness, anxious to hear music and wisdom from the longtime activist. Ani encouraged fans to take political action and did the same herself, participating in the Women's March on Washington and performing at the official Women's March after party benefitting Planned Parenthood with The National and Sleater-Kinney.

    Binary, of course, is being released into a world in which music distribution and consumption have transformed rapidly and dramatically. For DiFranco, a true pioneer in the music industry with her Righteous Babe label, it's a time to reconsider the possibilities and ambitions of her business.

    "While I was precedent-setting at one time with Righteous Babe and my indie crusade, I feel like, in the time it took me to nurse another baby into being, I've fallen behind," she says. "The universe and technology have continued to evolve, and the idea of harnessing technology and crowd-sourcing everything-money, knowledge, revolution-is a very powerful concept that I'm ready to get more involved with. Righteous Babe is starting to grow now into something that will hopefully become avant-garde once again- more of a collective, more dynamic."

    "I'm trying to figure it out daily," says Ani DiFranco. "Just like always."

    All Hell (Awaiting Repress)

    One thing that has come out of sharing our lives through songs and touring is the comforting knowledge that we all live, breathe, suffer, and survive together, says singer Davey Muise.


    No matter how dark the past or deep the problems, each of us have the power to let everything out through music and begin to not only heal but rebuild. All Hell is everything we've been through, all the problems, all the pain, all the lessons we've learned or were forced to face. But make no mistake. These songs aren't confessions - they're us being proud and owning the people we are now. This record is you on the other side of the hell you've gone through: better, stronger, and ready for more. No matter what you fought through, bled about and survived, we feel it, we're with you and this records is our anthem. This is the sound when All Hell comes crashing down.
