    Oh, Pretty Woman

    Remastered Audio


    The Lost Album From 1964!


    Now, for the first time since its appearance in the MONUMENT VINYL BOX released on Black Friday 2013, this is what would have been Roy's fourth Monument album: Oh! Pretty Woman, the missing Monument masterpiece. Made up of songs recorded late in his Monument career and carefully selected by Roy's boys - his sons Wesley, Roy Kelton, and Alex Orbison - this album features specially created artwork so that it looks just as it would have in 1964, had Roy not left Monument.


    Some songs have made their way onto hits compilations, like the title track Oh, Pretty Woman and It's Over. The haunting It's Over (1964, #9 Pop) spoke of golden days before they end. It winds up to an Orbison crescendo that reminds you that you are on the edge of your seat, knowing not how you got there. Oh, Pretty Woman (#1 Pop): the smash of all smash hits. It entered the charts twice in 1964 and garnered Roy international superstardom and a million dollar contract with another label, thus ending a magical time, with magical people, making magical music at Monument.

    White Lightning: Lost Cadence Sessions

    Surf, Cycles and Super Guitar Crunch! The kids of 1958 loved 'em, and their first single for Cadence Records shot up the charts like a label owner's dream. This is the fantastic and fiery album that was supposed to have been released as a follow-up to one of the all-time great instrumental classics, the ultra-menacing "Rumble." But faster than you can say "Drag Race," everyone-Cadence label-owner Archie Bleyer included-was talking about this new threat to the morals of American youth. That's why Link and his boys were off the imprint, and this album of prime distorto-guitar-crunch cool remained unreleased for nearly 50 years. Well here it is, and it's every bit as dirty and dangerous as you would expect!

    The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams

    An Album of Previously Unrecorded Hank Williams Lyrics Set to Music & Performed for the First Time by Bob Dylan, Jack White, Norah Jones, Alan Jackson & Other Top Artists


    Stemming from unused lyrics left behind by the legendary singer after his death in 1953 and spearheaded by Bob Dylan, The Lost Notebooks Of Hank Williams has a wide spectrum of current artists putting the music to Williams lyrics with fantastic results. The release is brought to you by Third Man Records, along with Egyptian Records, Bob Dylan's label imprint, in partnership with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's CMF Records and Columbia Records.


    The second title ever to be released on Egyptian (the first was 1997's The Songs of Jimmie Rodgers: A Tribute Album), The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams is a long-awaited collection of previously unrecorded Hank Williams lyrics newly set to music and performed for the first time as completed songs by a roster of artists with a musical and spiritual kinship to the archetypal American country music singer/songwriter.


    The release of The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams provides an audio companion to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy, a 5,000-square-foot exhibition presenting an intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of a great American musical dynasty. Family Tradition, which opened in March of 2008, is the largest and most popular temporary exhibition in the institution's history. The exhibit, which includes Hank Williams' notebooks and other memorabilia, will close on December 31, 2011.


    Created from writings left behind by country music's lovesick blues boy, The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams premieres the first-ever performances of 12 previously unheard Hank Williams lyric compositions newly set to music by 13 artists whose own sensibilities have been profoundly shaped by Williams.


    The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams project began with the idea of finding a well-known artist, one who felt Hank's inspiration and influence, to record an album's worth of the unheard songs. After veteran music industry manager/A&R executive Mary Martin approached Bob Dylan, a natural first choice for the endeavor, the project evolved into a multi-artist tribute providing a variety of sympathetic approaches to this rich mysterious material.


    From heartbreak to honky-tonking, from Jesus to gin mills, Hank Williams wrote about life's deepest truths and sang with an ethereal authority on such unforgettable songs as ''Your Cheatin' Heart,'' ''I Saw the Light,'' ''I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry,'' ''Cold, Cold Heart'' and many more.


    When Hank Williams died, at the age of 29, in the back of his Cadillac sometime early morning on New Year's Day 1953, he left behind a scuffed, embroidered brown leather briefcase, which he used to carry bound notebooks, among other items, darkening their pages with lyrics and song ideas. Some were fully finished, some just started.


    The odyssey of Hank Williams' notebooks is recounted in the album's liner notes, penned by Michael McCall from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, who observes, The history of Hank's notebooks is as complex as the legend himself. Yet, in the end, what matters most are the songs, and these new works rise from the ether with ghostly relevance. As with his many standards, these new recordings tap straight into the soul of man. This is songwriting at its most artful and most powerful.

    1. You've Been Lonesome, Too - Alan Jackson
    2. The Love That Faded - Bob Dylan
    3. How Many Times Have You Broken My Heart? - Norah Jones
    4. You Know That I Know - Jack White
    5. I'm So Happy I Found You - Lucinda Williams
    6. I Hope You Shed a Million Tears - Vince Gill and Rodney Crowell
    7. You're Through Fooling Me - Patty Loveless
    8. You'll Never Again Be Mine - Levon Helm
    9. Blue Is My Heart - Holly Williams

    Black Sheep Boy (10th Anniversary Edition)

    In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of this iconic album, Jagjaguwar is proud to present the Black Sheep Boy 10th Anniversary Edition, a three-LP set combining the classic Black Sheep Boy album and its counterpart the Black Sheep Boy Appendix with an all new unreleased album entitled There Swims a Swan: full-band recordings made six months prior to the release of Black Sheep Boy which illuminate the album's roots in the traditional American songbook.


    Featuring beautiful, emotional readings of songs popularized by such artists as Washington Phillips, Lead Belly, the Louvin Brothers, and Roscoe Holcomb, There Swims a Swan takes the listener on a trip through the songs that inspired Sheff while composing Black Sheep Boy and reads like a run-through of that album's themes. Black Sheep Boy is celebrated for its album artwork as well as its music, and the Anniversary Edition collects that artwork in a meticulously reworked package, combining every previous element of William Schaff's imagery with a large new piece by Schaff depicting an updated Black Sheep Boy. The release also includes lengthy liner notes by Will Sheff walking the listener through the circumstances surrounding the album.


    For Okkervil River fans (the most high-profile of whom was recently revealed to be President Barack Obama, who included Down Down the Deep River on his 2015 summer playlist), the Anniversary Edition is a loving, comprehensive, richly expanded presentation of a record many consider to be one of the band's best. For those new to the band, this might be the best place to start, the first step on a long road, the opening to a forest you can get lost in.

    Holy Fire

    It's all a long way from the group's early years in Oxford, where Yannis Philippakis (26), Jack Bevan (27), Walter Gervers (28), Edwin Congreave (28) and Jimmy Smith (28) convened after spells in various well regarded bands such as The Edmund Fitzgerald, whose intricacies were a league away from the Libertines-influenced indie skiffle and American garage rock that dominated at the time.


    Debut album Antidotes (2004) attempted to capture the live energy and sense of spontaneity that had made Foals one of the most sought-after live acts in the UK. 2007 follow-up Total Life Forever was a surprise to many (Foals never sit still for long) dealing in more expansive, eloquent sounds and a more mellow feel inspired in part by Foals' long-time enthusiasm for weed. Now, as they approach their 30s, Foals are moving on from the kind of lost boys club element to how we've lived for the past six years to make their best music yet.

    Territory (On Sale)

    Territory is the follow up to the Charlottetown band's Polaris Prize nominated and internationally acclaimed sophomore album, Little Jabs. Once again produced by Joel Plaskett, Territory builds on the promise of Little Jabs as the band continues to write and record sunny pop gems for the heart and head. The album also finds Two Hours Traffic discovering the shadows at the side of the road. Right from the get go this becomes apparent as the gold into lead alchemy of the rousing opener Noisemaker kicks in and by the time the title track tells its tale of disillusionment and betrayal you know you are settling in for a drive to the darker side. Indeed, songs such as Weightless One, Drop Alcohol, Wicked Side, and Lost Boys all explore the approaching dusk but just like the more hopeful tracks on the album (Happiness Burns, Sing A Little Hymn) they all lock into the close your eyes, sing along choruses and instantly memorable lyrics that have put Two Hours Traffic on the melodic map.



    Initially conceived as a two-piece, lead singer Liam Corcoran and guitarist Alec O'Hanley recruited bassist Andrew MacDonald and drummer Derek Ellis while attending university in their hometown of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. After releasing their April Storm EP in 2003 a friendship was struck up with Halifax hero Joel Plaskett who offered to produce the band's first proper album. They've been working together ever since. While their eponymous debut and their follow up Isolator EP were received warmly by critics, it wasn't until 2007's breakthrough Little Jabs that the world really took notice. Appearing on dozens of year-end best of lists, Little Jabs also garnered an ECMA for Best Pop Recording and was a finalist for the coveted Polaris Music Prize.

    Sooner Or Later


    Sooner Or Later Brings Back Into Print All Neo Boys Releases That Have Long Been Unavailable To All But Scouring Collectors, And Also Releases Material That Never Saw The Light Of Day


    In 1978, the city of Portland, OR erupted with a radical form of artistic expression some refer to as "punk" or "new wave." Restless teenage crowds were gathering in quiet alleys and meeting halls, anxious to shake off their cultural ties, and at the heart of this legendary movement was the powerful all-girl punk group the Neo Boys. Though an active band for just five years (1978-82), teenage sisters Kt (bass) and Kim Kincaid (vocals), together with Pat Baum (drums) and guitarists Jennifer Labianco and Megan Hengtes forged a place for women in the growing punk rock scene, and redefined gender roles in the 80's movement of rock and roll.


    With their bleached hair, melodic bass lines, surfy guitar strums and straight-forward poetic lyrics, they were a stand-out in the rising new wave/punk scene. Neo Boys regularly shared bills with Greg Sage and The Wipers, opened for Nico, played their first show with Television and participated in founding Portland's first all-ages collective DIY performance space, Clockwork Joes.


    Yet somehow this incredible legacy was nearly lost in the annals of history. Calvin Johnson, a Neo Boys fan since hearing their first single thirty years ago, worked with the band members to track down the missing tapes of their recordings through a rabbit hole of Northwest basements and closets. The result is Sooner or Later (KLP247), a comprehensive double LP collection of Neo Boys recordings from 1977-1982. Included are their long out-of-print 1980 7" EP (released on Greg Sage's Trap Records), and the 1982 self-released EP Crumbling Myths. Sooner or Later also contains studio recordings, early demos and live sessions that have never before been available to the public.


    Sooner or Later is divided between the Neo Boys' early, raw punk era and their more accomplished '80s era during which they recorded Crumbling Myths (which was originally meant to be an album but was cut down to a seven song EP at the last moment). "Time Keeps Time," a bouncy bass-heavy track, made popular again by Grass Widow's cover on their Milo Minute 7", demonstrates the Neo Boys timeless appeal. And Kim Kincaid's soft, not-too-sweet vocals in "Nothing To Fear," which makes two appearances on the collection, speaks to the power of the band's ideals, and the importance of pursuing your artistic vision, even in the face of adversity.


    The Neo Boys were an outspoken feminist fixture in the development of the NW underground music scene, and this legacy is cemented with the release of their complete recordings, Sooner or Later.


    "Neo Boys have been an influence not only on my approach to melody, but also to a world of imagination where anything is possible. Their music is just as pertinent and relatable today as it was 30 years ago, and with existential songs about alienation, societal problems and love, they created a world I have taken refuge in during times when I felt the effects of narrow attitudes about gender and women's voices in music." - Hannah Lew, Grass Widow

    The third full-length release from L.A.-based duo HONEYHONEY, 'III' is an album born from fascination with the sweet and the sleazy, the light and dark, the danger and the magic. Since Ben Jaffe and Suzanne Santo released the critically-acclaimed 'Billy Jack' in 2011, they've kept on the road, growing their fan base tenfold both at home and internationally. Working on this new album with Dave Cobb (the producer behind Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson), lead singer/banjo player/violinist Suzanne Santo and vocalist/guitarist Ben Jaffe twist their gritty, harmony-driven brand of Southern-flavored rock & roll through tales of lost souls, broken boys and girls with gold in their spit. The two songwriters also take a mirror to their own experience in lust and heartache - never shying away from revealing the messy truth. This album reflects their continued growth, and holds nothing back. It's easy to understand why HONEYHONEY's following ranges from lovers of the Black Keys and White Stripes to The Civil Wars. Whether they rattle, soothe or joyfully inspire, HONEYHONEY instill each song with a straight-from-the-gut honesty and elegance of storytelling that make 'III' both cathartic and electrifying.

    Sunset Blvd (Instrumental)

    Instrumental


    Delicious Vinyl will proudly release Sunset Blvd., the new album from Yancey Boys, the group piloted by John "Illa J" Yancey and Frank Nitt. The dynamic new collection is built around previously unheard tracks created by Illa J's brother: the late, great J Dilla (James Yancey). With Frank Nitt's standing as J Dilla Music Catalog Curator and the official approval of Yancey Media Group, all productions on Sunset Blvd. originate from The Lost Scrolls - the stunning cache of beats Dilla left behind.


    With its rapturous single "Quicksand" featuring Common, Sunset Blvd. also teams Yancey Boys with De La Soul's Posdnuos ("Beautiful"), The Pharcyde's SlimKid3 ("Rock My World"), and T3 of Slum Village ("Jeep Volume"), making it clear that the Dilla legacy is being represented by those who knew and collaborated with Dilla in his lifetime. Additional guests on Sunset Blvd. include DJs Rhettmatic, C-Minus, and JRocc (Beat Junkies) as well as rap roughneck Guilty Simpson and R&B strongman Eric Roberson. "We've created an album that would make Dilla proud," says Frank Nitt, who grew up with Dilla in Detroit. "But this isn't a nostalgia trip: Dilla's beats were so future-forward that they're right on time in 2013, and we've assembled the best artists possible to represent that."

    -POP MATTERS


    Having lived, worked, and created in the ever evolving Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn for over a
    decade, native Texan Travis Johnson has felt the direct impact of the growth and dissolution that comes
    with rapid gentrification. His band Grooms practiced, and recorded at Brooklyn's Death By Audio for
    seven years (first as Muggabears, then as Grooms) before they were forced out of their spiritual and
    literal home in November 2014 when DBA shut its doors. A little over a year before, with the band's
    income not providing enough money to support any of its members, bass player and co-writer Emily
    Ambruso went on hiatus from the band, leaving Johnson as the only original member. Despite these
    unfortunate blows, Johnson soldiered on, soon recruiting Jay Heiselmann on bass, and actor/comedian
    Steve Levine on drums.


    After months of experimenting with sound collages, samples, and electronic beats, the band recorded an
    obsessively detailed and melodically complex album, with a heavy focus on mood and texture. Unlike
    their previous album Infinity Caller (which Speedy Ortiz's Sadie Dupuis called ...an exercise in explosion
    and restraint hallmarked by sweeping guitars, stuttery drums, and cryptic, airy vocals...) many of the
    songs on Comb... bring the band's rhythm section to the fore, and Johnson's trademark guitar stylings
    often take a backseat to his psychedelic sample-collages and ambient electronics. Fortunately the new
    approach works, balancing pop structures with masterful experimental production that shifts in tone and
    color in harmony with Johnson's tales of acceptance, loneliness, and impotent violence.


    On Comb..., that violence is most evident on Something Wild, a song about destroying the high-priced
    waterfront condos that contribute to the rising cost of living in neighborhoods like Williamsburg and
    Greenpoint, and then feeling conflicted about it. Love is the subject matter on Bed Version (a song
    which Johnson describes as a fantasy about seeing the joy in my girlfriend's face as she realizes she's
    not cosmically alone.), and the album becomes wistful on Cross Off (a remembrance and longing for
    the good old days when Ambruso was still an active member of the band), but even on these songs
    Levine's alternately Krautrock and Elvin Jones-inspired drums, and Heiselmann's propulsive bass help to
    maintain the album's intense atmosphere. Album standouts like Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair
    and Doctor M deliver head-bobbing pop hooks as Johnson ponders his long-term struggle with
    addiction, while other songs, Savage Seminar, Will the Boys?, and Grenadine Scene from Inside,
    explore the thoughts, and feelings of fictional characters in the films Magnolia, Lost Boys, and Steel
    Magnolias, respectively.


    Whether singing from a fictional or personal perspective, Johnson's songs on Comb... are all loosely
    about letting go of bitterness and resentment. Like the Brooklyn neighborhood where he lives and works,
    his internal real estate is constantly being reevaluated, razed, and rebuilt. Fortunately his personal
    growth has yielded an album that attentive listeners will find relatable and consistently rewarding.

    Little Honey

    Lucinda Williams new Lost Highway release, Little Honey features many songs she has been performing live for years, the original Circles And X's which she initially wrote in 1985 and a legendary duet with Elvis Costello on Jailhouse Tears. The Eric Liliestrand and Tom Overby produced affair also features guest appearances from Matthew Sweet, Susanna Hoffs, Jim Lauderdale, Tim Easton and Charlie Louvin. In support here are Doug Pettibone on guitar, David Sutton on bass, Chet Lyster on guitar, Butch Norton on drums and Rob Burger on keyboards.


    Im in a different phase of my life, so there are more happy moments on this album, the singer-songwriter says of her ninth studio set. Darkly introspective, is one phrase people have used to describe a lot of my songs. There are moody songs, but Im looking outside myself a little bit more. These arent boy meets girl, boy leaves girl, girl gets bummed out songs,theres a lot more than that going on.

    Nursing Home


    Nursing Home, the second album by Lets Wrestle, was recorded in Chicago with Steve Albini. With themes that include being trapped in the suburbs and dancing boys on drugs, the band show that their view of the world is the same, theyve just put on some darker sunglasses. Lets Wrestle may have lost some of their naivety lyrically, but its certainly still there.


    If you ask singer Wesley Patrick Gonzalez what the record sounds like hell tell you Thin Lizzy and The Cars, which I guess to some extent is true. Though I wont bother to list other bands the record brings to mind, I will say that its heavier than its predecessor, maybe due to Albinis engineering, but the underlying melody displayed previously remains, with the few quiet songs on Nursing Home being perhaps the most poignant the band have recorded. - Dan Boleyn

    Paul's Not Home

    The Pope of The Butthole Surfers and Silver Screen Legend, Gibby Haynes teams up with Jack White and Third Man Records and releases into the wilds three blasts of psychic energy in the punk rock idiom exploiting a range of subjects from, teenagers on fire, Equine love affairs, and Recession shotgun stories. Yes folks, it's the Gibby Haynes Blue Series 7'' Single on Third Man Records and it's being released on Valentines Day, 2013. For lovers.


    The three-song single features two originals ''You Don't Have To Be Smart'' and ''Horse Named George,'' and a cover of Adrenalin OD's ''Paul's Not Home,'' a lost classic (cough cough... ahem) that originally appeared on the 1982 New York Thrash compilation alongside the first ever recorded material by Beastie Boys and some of the earliest known recordings by Bad Brains, Kraut and others.

    World Wide Live

    180 Gram Double LP


    Since the Scorpions' career was at its peak, World Wide Live could not have been recorded at a better time. This album contains all of their early-'80s hits, and while they aren't as energetic on-stage as they are in the studio, the band still perform with a great amount of flamboyance. The record is the Scorpions' only worthwhile live album and is a must for their fans.


    Recorded in California, France, and West Germany during 1984's Love at First Sting Tour, World Wide Live captures Scorpions at the indisputable peak of their career. Propelled by the crossover success of "Rock You Like a Hurricane," Scorpions were playing the biggest shows of their life but hadn't yet lost their early hunger. The most crucial aspect of this kind of live album is the sound. After all, it's extremely hard to retain a metal band's cohesive attack when recording in cavernous sports arenas. Fortunately, Scorpions worked with their longtime engineer Dieter Dierks, who was able to maintain a sound quality that was full-bodied and very realistic.


    These recordings are rare among concert albums in that they somehow translate both the largeness of the venues and the tightly wound attack of the music. Highlights include "Blackout," "Bad Boys Running Wild," and "Holiday." "Rock You Like a Hurricane" sounds like it was written specifically for this type of venue, and by the time you reach that performance, you start to understand the additional juice these songs are given in the live setting.

    Fold Your Hands Child You Walk Like a Peasant

    Belle & Sebastian's songs have always been instantly familiar while simultaneously original and unexpected. Listening to Belle & Sebastian, you have the inexplicable feeling that you have heard these songs somewhere before, filed away with the mothballs of your youth, or that, maybe, you have stumbled upon long-lost tapes of a young Nick Drake being backed by Village Green Preservation Society-era Kinks under the production of some low-rent Phil Spector. The fact that Belle & Sebastian have arrived at their distinct, anachronistic sound quite naturally and by accident is a large part of their charm. It's not surprising, then, that Belle & Sebastian's fourth full-length record, Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant, has arrived with the band's sincerity intact. What is surprising, however, is the record itself: an eclectic mix of the soulful and the sublime, something of a departure for the band. Unlike their last record, the amazing Boy with the Arab Strap, the songs here are not instantly recognizable, but more subtle. The hooks don't automatically grab; instead, the songs' intent is to break you down, seeping into your bloodstream and working on you from the inside out like an infection.


    The eclectic feel of the record owes itself to the fact that this is, by far, Belle & Sebastian's most record by committee affair yet, with songwriting contributions from several different band members and songs that seem to have been built up from simple ideas into lush orchestral pieces with the musical input of the band's many different instrumentalists. While Stuart Murdoch still writes and sings the bulk of the material, he collaborates with bandmates on a number of songs, including the delicately soulful Don't Leave the Light on Baby, written with keyboardist Chris Geddes. Unfortunately, songs by Belle & Sebastian cofounder and bassist Stuart David are not to be found on Fold Your Hands (he left the band during the recording). However, violinist Sarah Martin contributes her first song with the haunting Waiting for the Moon to Rise, while cellist Isobel Campbell adds the record's most surprising track, Beyond the Sunrise, sounding like a lost Leonard Cohen gem with its spare and fragile arrangement. Guitarist Stevie Jackson, who contributed some of the better songs on Arab Strap, manages only one on this outing, but it's one of the best: The Wrong Girl, a tale of misplaced love juxtaposed against swinging Spector- like strings and horns. By the time the band reaches Women's Realm, an infectious, life-affirming romp, the record's message, although never spelled out, is clear: Through all the melancholy and solitude and terrible things that could go wrong, life is still worth fighting for. --Paul Ducey

    On The Scene '73

    Import


    Previously unreleased live broadcast of intimate Tom Waits performance featuring incredible rarities - plus interviews with the man himself.


    Securing his first proper record deal with David Geffen's Asylum label in 1972, Tom Waits would go on to release seven records with the label in as many years. The first of these, Closing Time, was released in March 73 and comprised the most unique collection of original compositions that American critics and consumers had witnessed since the 1960s heyday of Beatles, Beach Boys and Bob Dylan. Informed by the wordsmiths of the beat generation, the blues howlers of a former age, the smooth jazz vocals of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, and the country flavoured ballads that Ray Charles had turned to in the early 1960s, Waits developed a cult following with his portrayals of modern American domesticity and love sought and lost. On the 12th August 1973 Waits was to be found performing an in-house set for the renowned L.A. radio series Folk Scene, broadcast weekly by KPFK FM, Tom's performances were augmented with interviews that provide a fascinating insight into his career at this time. Included too on this LP are five additional tracks from a performance Tom made in Santa Monica a few months later on 10th November 1973. Also the subject of an FM broadcast, two further cuts from The Heart of Saturday Night are complimented by a triumvirate of Waits rarities that have seldom been heard before or since.

    Pinetop Perkins

    Perkins began his blues existence primarily as a guitarist, but a mid-40's encounter with an outraged knife-toting chorus girl at a nightspot left him with severed tendons in his left arm. That dashed his guitar aspirations, but Joe Willie Perkins came back strong from the injury, concentrating solely on piano. He traveled to Helena with Robert Nighthawk in 1943, playing with the elegant slide guitarist on his radio program. Perkins soon switched over to rival Sonny Boy Williamson's beloved King Biscuit Time radio show and remained for an extended period.


    Perkins accompanied Nighthawk on a 1950 session for the Chess brothers that produced Jackson Town Gal, but Chicago couldn't hold him at the time. He hit the road, pausing at Sam Phillips's studios in Memphis long enough for Perkins to wax his first version of Pinetop's Boogie Woogie in 1953, then headed back to the windy city in 1969 when Otis Spann split from Muddy Waters. That is when the stage was set for Pinetop Perkins's reemergence. It was only then that his rolling mastery of the ivories began to assume outsized proportions.


    After joining Muddy Waters, Pinetop made up for precious lost time in the studio. Discs for Antone's, Omega (Portrait of a Delta Bluesman, a solo outing that includes fascinating interview segments), Deluge, Earwig, and several other firms ensure that his boogie legacy won't be forgotten in decades to come.


    Pinetop at a young 87 years old admits he wasn't the originator of the seminal piano piece Pinetop's Boogie Woogie, but it's a safe bet that more people associate it nowadays with Pinetop than with the man who devised it in the first place, Clarence Pinetop Smith. Pinetop plays 6 songs on a Steinway Concert Grand 9' model D with Jimmy D. Lane on guitar.

    Maze of Woods (On Sale)

    Inventions are the collaborative sum of longtime friends Matthew Cooper of Eluvium, and Mark T. Smith of Explosions In The Sky. Their 2014 eponymous debut album introduced an ambition to create music that was both challenging and comforting. Their new album, Maze of Woods, opens with a vocal sample declaring, I wanted to do something that I don't know how to do. Using this as a mission statement, Inventions have crafted a complex and exuberant album from an array of instruments, samples, found sounds, beats, chants, and raw bursts of noise, with a much greater emphasis on strong vocal accompaniment in every song. Two albums released in the span of 10 months speaks to the drive that these two have felt since they started playing together. Much like on the first record, they again mixed the album in a house on the Oregon coastline, with final mixing and production all done by Smith and Cooper. Inventions have stated that much of the inspiration for Maze of Woods comes from the closing paragraph of Denis Johnson's novella Train Dreams. In that paragraph, Johnson describes the nonverbal howl of a feral wolf boy, a pre-language that is yearning and instinctual; a statement of wordless distress and love. Maze of Woods is the product of two masters of their craft getting lost in the wilderness, doing something that they don't know how to do, and emerging with something wholly unexpected and beguilingly beautiful.

    4 Trk Mind (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    In this man are the traces of becoming. the display of veins strung into a multi-colored silhouette of a man born out of the electric dawn of the late seventies. Birthed from a songwriter father who struggled to unveil to his son the distortion world of drugs, song, and love, he discovered early that we are all in exile from one another. The boy grew up fascinated with the world of horror films, new wave pop, rap music, and graffiti. His spray paint fingers grazed dusty record sleeves, transformed a cheep home stereo into a mixer, and connected a young man with the current that changed his head. After years of journeying through sweat drenched undergrounds, and strobe light shadows, a man emerged. One who finds consolation in the fractal universe, one who has discovered love in a Technicolor death valley, and one who realized that those of the Diaspora of love can find community through song, he radiates wax for us. A man who is wired to the electric field of his past where he has loves and lost, and discovered the intervals of an off beat, kinetic world, he offers his songs as flesh, this music is an artifact of a man who shares his quantum of experience, who wants you to plug into his design, bridge the gap of our individual exiles, and discover the art of becoming electric through analog tape hiss.
