    Nevermind

    Ranked 17/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Released in September 1991, Nirvana's sophomore album and major label debut elevated Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl from a critically acclaimed Aberdeen, Washington, cult band to generational spokesmen who'd unwittingly created a cultural shift and musical touchstone. Rising to No. 1 the world over by year's end and ultimately selling over 30 million copies worldwide, Nevermind would come to be much more than one of the most successful and influential albums of its or any era. As the album that returned unaffected rock 'n' roll integrity and passion to the top of the charts, Nevermind would prove a singular inspiration to fans and musicians alike over the last two decades--and will undoubtedly do so for generations to come.

    In Utero: 20th Anniversary Edition (2013 Mix)


    45 RPM 180 Gram Vinyl Double Album


    Mastered At Abbey Road Studios


    Direct To Metal Mastering


    Alternate Artwork Exclusive To This Release


    The 20th anniversary of Nirvana's third and ultimately final studio album, In Utero, continues apace, with its 2013 Mix, mastered at Abbey Road Studios,
    issued as a 45 RPM 180 gram vinyl double album--cut to copper plates using the direct to metal mastering process, and housed in stunning alternate
    artwork exclusive to this release.


    The 2013 Mix finds original producer Steve Albini revisiting In Utero with the blessing and oversight of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. With an approach
    described as more of an alternate snapshot of the same entity than a typical remix or new mix, the 2013 Mix coaxes forth never before heard nuances-
    -and including unearthed alternate performances on some tracks--and finds incredible new sonic dimensions of the unwitting swansong of the single most
    influential artist of the 1990s.


    Upon its original 1993 release, In Utero was easily the most polarizing record of a generation. The most confrontational yet vulnerable material Kurt
    Cobain, Novoselic and Grohl would ever record, it was also the first record Nirvana would make with any expectations from the public. The In Utero 2013
    Mix double vinyl edition offers yet another perspective of the final and perhaps finest hour of Nirvana: of the most incredible yet conflicted rock 'n' roll band
    of the era at the peak of its powers surmounting struggles from within and without to make the record they needed to make.

    Bleach

    Continuing our legacy of reminding people Nirvana had a record before Nevermind, Sub Pop Records presents a non-deluxe, affordably-priced, single-LP version of Bleach, Nirvana's debut album. Originally released by us in June of 1989, Bleach was widely recognized as a record music retailers should probably order after that one with the naked baby on the cover did so well in 1991. Now we proudly suggest you order this single-LP version of Bleach containing the full remastered album as found on the Bleach Deluxe Edition 2LP, and a pretty printed inner sleeve. We promise it will sell.

    In Utero: 20th Anniversary Edition


    20th Anniversary Edition Features The Original Album Brilliantly Remastered At Abbey Road Studios And Pressed On Two 45 RPM 180 Gram Vinyl LPs


    The 180 Gram 33 1/3 RPM LP Includes Previously Unreleased Recordings And Demos, B-sides And Compilation Tracks And Live Material


    Ranked 439/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    A reactionary statement to the phenomenal commercial success of Nevermind, In Utero remains Nirvanas most noisy, caustic, uncompromised, and aggressive album. Its also the bands best, a brilliant combination of contagious hooks, feedback-drenched squalls, bruised beauty, and biting lyrical wit intended to blindside causal listeners with raw emotion, difficult listening, and painful honesty. Rife with medical imagery and references to disease, sickness, decay, and dismay, In Utero is the distraught sound of personal catharsis and unyielding trauma. More revealingly, the record doubles as a haunting foreshadowing of singer Kurt Cobains suicide that took place just months after its release.


    Unhappy with the high-gloss production and pop-based arrangements on Nevermind, Nirvana set out to make a harsher album that would literally alienate millions. While the trio succeeded in its goal of getting intimate with blistering dissonance and acerbic tones, In Utero resonated with the public, debuting at #1 on the Billboard charts and ultimately selling more than four million copies. Echoing John Lennon, Cobains piercing songwriting spoke to the disaffected masses that shared his anguish and set new standards for ironic depth that still stand. For every unsettling screed (Serve the Servants, Milk It, Radio Friendly Unit Shifter, Tourettes) there are introspective moments of folk-inspired elegance (All Apologies, Pennyroyal Tea, Dumb) that hint at the direction in which Nirvana was headed.


    In Utero is equally legendary for the controversies involving its production. Originally helmed by Steve Albini, an engineer known for capturing live ambience and natural tones, the album was eventually remixed by Scott Litt after the group complained about the vocal sound. While the exact specifics of what party demanded the redo remain blurry, the finished results are staggering, with the added harmonies, better bass definition, and vocal volume boosts achieving an ideal balance that satisfied the bands wishes. Now, you can hear it like never before.

    MTV Unplugged In New York


    Import


    Ranked 311/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    MTV Unplugged in New York is a live album by the American grunge band Nirvana. It features an acoustic performance taped at Sony Music Studios in New York City on November 18, 1993, for the television series MTV Unplugged. The show was directed by Beth McCarthy and first aired on the cable television network MTV on December 16, 1993. As opposed to traditional practice on the television series, the band played a setlist composed of mainly lesser-known material and cover versions of songs by The Vaselines, David Bowie, Lead Belly, and Meat Puppets, whose Cris and Curt Kirkwood joined Nirvana onstage.


    MTV Unplugged in New York was the first Nirvana album released following the death of Kurt Cobain. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and has become the group's most successful posthumous release, having been certified 5x platinum in the United States by 1997. It also won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1996.

    What Am I Doing


    Debut Album From This Brooklyn Band


    Album Produced By Annabel Alpers Of Bachelorette (Drag City)


    Mixed By Adam Cooke (Beach House / Double Dagger)


    Lushes are a band born of tensions - between art and math,
    order and chaos, planning and chance. You can hear it in their
    songs - taut, twitching art-punk that balance anxiety and elation,
    often within the space of a few bars. Album opener Harsh glides
    along slowly, feeling like a moody and measured art-rock
    meditation until you zero in on the words in the chorus: Harsh on
    my ears, that's the way I like it. This is push-pull music, songs
    that temper the jagged fitfulness of groups like June of 44 and
    Slint with the soft-focus sweetness and open-ended song
    structures of The Sea & Cake and The Notwist.


    That moods so diametrically opposed can peacefully coexist is
    part of Lushes mystery and allure. That duality extends to the
    group's background. James Ardery and Joel Myers were living in
    worlds far removed from music, both working day jobs that
    neither of them enjoyed. Their personalities were different -
    James was outspoken and gregarious, Joel introverted and
    reserved. Their musical backgrounds were different: James grew
    up pillaging his father's record collection, getting turned on to
    Nirvana and Wu-Tang Clan by his older brother and attending
    hardcore shows by pioneering bands like Fugazi at 12 years old.
    Joel was formally trained, loving classical music but almost
    completely oblivious to rock and pop. The fusion of their disparate
    influences is what animates Lushes - the anarchy of punk and
    hardcore colliding with the precision of jazz to create music that is
    marvelously ordered while still feeling seconds away from
    detonation. That tension pulses throughout What Am I Doing, the
    group's warring influences making for music that feels brittle and
    vital.

    Feel The Noise

    Yeah, it's a concept man. Rock n' roll... remember that? Well I do, like it was yesterday. Standing on the corner of Hollywood & Vine in LA or on Columbus & Broadway in front of Aquarius Records in North Beach San Francisco circa 1975... Thinking that all I wanted to do is rock out, so sick of everything I was hearing on the radio, all those bands seemed to suck to me, I couldn't understand what happened to the real rock n roll that I grew up on. Where did it go ? Where were the balls? Where were the guts? Where were the songs that blew my mind, the guitar licks, the harmonies... what happened? For too many years after that all I heard was the same old thing... "rock n roll is dead". Every time I heard it, it made me mad, it made me think... yeah... FUCK YOU! Then I heard the Ramones, and things got better for a while, and then it got bad again. Then I heard Nirvana and things got better again for a while, then they got bad again, but at that point I didn't really care anymore because I knew that Rock N Roll was never gonna die... you know why? Because there will always be a new generation of kids who will dig this shit as much as I do... Feel The Noise! Remember kids, the future is in your hands! Keep on Rocking!

    Silverchair's debut album, Frogstomp, faithfully follows the alternative rock tradition of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, which means that the group of Australian teenagers winds up sounding not like their idols, but like Stone Temple Pilots and Bush. For their age, their instrumental capabilities are quite impressive, as the guitars and vocals growl with the force of rockers in their early 20s.

    MTV Unplugged In New York

    Ranked 311/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Recorded in November 1993, less than six months before singer Kurt Cobain killed himself, Nirvanas MTV Unplugged is a watershed document that presents a band at the peak of its powers. Unlike any other unplugged affair, the diverse album is not a simple stripped-down regurgitation of greatest hits or a cash-it-in set of nostalgic favorites. Rather, the live effort is among the most emotionally naked spectacles ever released an album so starkly intense and profoundly personal, its impossible not to get chills down the spine.


    Made primarily with acoustic instrumentsGrohl even trades sticks for brushes, Krist Novoselic picks up an accordion, and cellist Lori Goldston prominently figures in the arrangementsUnplugged in New York reveals Nirvanas folksier side and clear ambition to move beyond abrasive rock. The setlist is as surprising as the stylistic makeover. Save for renditions of All Apologies and Come As You Are, the adventurous material includes brooding covers of the Meat Puppets' Lake of Fire, Plateau, and Oh Me as well as harrowing versions of David Bowies The Man Who Sold the World, and the Vaselines Jesus Dont Want Me for a Sunbeam.


    And then there's the heart-shattering climax. Intensely private and disturbingly primal, Nirvana's rendition of the Leadbelly standard Where Did You Sleep Last Night takes its place among the most cathartic songs ever committed to record. Its the musical equivalent of the insides of Cobain's soul being ripped out and put out display for all to see.


    Hurry! Do not pass up this chance to own the Nirvana swan song that Rolling Stone named one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time!

    Live At Reading

    Ranked #1 in Kerrang magazine's 100 Gigs That Shook The World and voted as Nirvana's #1 Greatest Moment by fans in an NME poll, Nirvana's historic August 30, 1992 headlining appearance at the UK's Reading Festival is one of the most bootlegged concerts in the annals of rock 'n' roll. Now, fans finally can own a pristine copy of that entire performance complete with remastered audio.


    While the show's centerpiece was a performance of nearly the entire Nevermind tracklist, also noteworthy were early performances of three as yet unrecorded songs which wouldn't be released until a year later on In Utero: All Apologies,Dumb, and, in its first ever public performance, Tourette's. The career-spanning set list also reached back to the band's 1989 Sub Pop debut album, Bleach, for Blew,About A Girl, School, Negative Creep, and the band's first single Love Buzz, and even further back for Spank Thru.


    Other songs from the Reading set would appear in studio form on the Incesticide compilation later in the year: Aneurysm, Been A Son and Sliver. Additionally, the band played a pair of beloved covers by two bands that helped shape the formative Nirvana sound: The Money Will Roll Right In by Fang and by The Wipers.

    Bleach (Deluxe Edition)


    Originally recorded over three sessions with producer Jack Endino at Seattle's Reciprocal Recording Studios in December 1988 and January 1989, Bleach was released in June of 1989 and remains unequivocally and unsurprisingly Sub Pop's very favorite Nirvana full-length. The album initially sold 40,000 copies, but was brought into the international spotlight following the release and worldwide success of the group's 1991 sophomore effort, Nevermind. Subsequently, Bleach has gone on to sell 1.7 million copies in the US alone.

    Sparkle And Fade

    Remastered From High-Res Archives For the First Time!


    One Of Two Releases From Intervention Records' Lost '90s Series


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio


    Everclear remains one of the few elite acts to emerge from the post-Nirvana grunge explosion, rockers that could not only match the crunch and aggression of Seattle's finest, but the hooks and emotional honesty. Everclear's Art Alexakis wrote songs that were a mature but hard rocking brand of power pop with gritty, achingly true lyrics about addiction, failed relationships and loneliness. Sparkle and Fade was Everclear's second release, and it broke HUGE, a platinum-selling smash with hit tunes like Santa Monica, Heroin Girl and Heartspark Dollar Sign.


    A driving passion at IR is bringing music from the dark days of the CD era to glorious new light and life on premium vinyl. So much fantastic music from this era either never saw a vinyl release at all, or saw only a very limited and all too often low-quality release ripped from CDs without much care. During that era even if the original capture was to analog tape it was often ripped to digital and loaded into workstations for choosing final mixes, sequencing and final assembly. If vinyl was released during this era it is more than likely sourced from CD files. For releases that were never assembled in analog or were fully-digital recordings IR acquires and masters from high-resolution 20-24-bit files and if needed assembles final mixes, cross-fades, etc. during mastering. The increase in musicality and purity is as exponential as the increase in bit depth! Combining superior master sources with the truly full-range mastering chain at Cohearent and RTI's dead quiet vinyl pressing results in hearing the music that was the soundtrack to our lives like never before!

    Trompe Le Monde


    The Pixies Trompe Le Monde On Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP From Mobile Fidelity


    Pixies Swan Song Sparks With Electrically Charged Hooks, Outer-Space Atmospherics, And Eminent Tunefulness



    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes: Restoration Turns 1991 Album Into A Sonic Blockbuster


    Frank Black-led Set Includes Contagious Cover Of The Jesus And Mary Chain's "Head On"


    The Pixies verged on commercial breakthrough when the now-iconic band released Trompe le Monde in September 1991. A sea change in popular music tastes that the band helped initiate began to sweep the world. And the Boston quartet seemed prepared to lead the way, with this, its eminently tuneful fourth record, jam-packed with crafty hooks, prickly tones, catchy elements, outer-space atmospherics, electrically charged energy, and delightfully quirky lyrics.


    As it stands, Trompe le Monde takes its place as one of the finest swan songs ever recorded. If the Pixies wouldn't have broken up right after its release, there's no telling what would've happened. All that you need to know is that the 15-track effort is as hard rocking and brilliantly innovative as any of the group's creations. That's no small feat.


    Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited edition 180g LP presents the ensemble's abrasively melodic landmark in a fidelity it's never enjoyed in any prior version. Featuring lusher keyboards and moodier soundscapes than its predecessors, but also reclaiming the nasty guitar edginess and swooning distortion of the group's earliest efforts, Trompe de la Monde finally comes across as the Pixies intended: A sonic bridge between college-rock's influential cruder-textured albums and the polished professionalism that distinguished alt-rock classics.


    In other words, Mobile Fidelity's version presents it as the perfect-sounding album: Replete with grit, rawness, and character, but mixed in with radio-friendly smoothness and virtuosic professionalism. Awash with incredible timbres and tonalities, myriad new details rise to the surface. Listen to the counterpoint melodies and layered vocals on "Letter to Memphis"; the trash-compactor feedback and thumping bass during the whipsawing "Planet of Sound"; the "Spyhunter"-like pace and limitless depth now present on "Subbacultcha." Dynamics, contrasts, low-end frequencies, and imaging are all significantly enhanced. Compared to the original CD, Trompe le Monde emerges as a new album-a sonic wonderland that's not far removed from that of Nirvana's celebrated blockbuster Nevermind.


    Musically, the Pixies were never better. On par with the groundbreaking Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, Trompe le Monde explodes with hyper riffs, jerks to stop-start progressions, elates with cheerful emotions, and bangs on to giddy surf-fused arrangements. With Kim Deal absent from the songwriting process, vocalist/guitarist Frank Black takes the reigns and doesn't disappoint. Tales about sea monkeys ("Palace of the Brine"), aliens ("Planet of Sound"), and love ("The Sad Punk") bop alongside memorable jabs at hipster pretensions ("Subbacultcha") and inflated egos ("U-Mass"). A contagious cover of the Jesus and Mary Chain's "Head On" will have you hitting "repeat." Power pop, wanderlust punk, theatrical glam rock, reconfigured reverb-laden country-all here, all encouraging repeat listens.


    Nearly lost due amidst the alternative trend that it played such a key role in spawning, Trompe le Monde gets new life courtesy of this extremely punchy, greatly balanced Mobile Fidelity issue. If you missed it the first time, don't make that mistake again. Essential with a capital "E," and the perfect way to close Mobile Fidelity's Pixies catalog restoration series.

    The Best Day

    The Best Day, Thurston Moore's first solo record since
    2011's Demolished Thoughts, radiates with both
    his signature dynamism of dense thrashing electric
    guitars as well as blissful 12-string acoustic ballads.
    Recorded with Thurston's current band line-up of
    James Sedwards (guitars, UK), Deb Googe (of My
    Bloody Valentine, bass, UK) and Steve Shelley (Sonic
    Youth, drums, USA), there are also a some tracks that
    feature all instrumentation by Thurston.


    Thurston Moore has been at the forefront of the
    alternative rock scene since that particular obriquet
    was first used to signify any music that challenged
    and defied the mainstream standard. He is the
    founder and ringleader of Sonic Youth, the band
    that turned on an entire generation to the value of
    experimentation in rock n' roll - from its inspiration
    on a nascent Nirvana, to Sonic Youth's own Daydream
    Nation album being chosen by the US Library of
    Congress for historical preservation in the National
    Recording Registry in 2006.


    This is a record defined by positivity and radical
    love. The songs range from opener "Speak to the
    Wild", a Crazy Horse-like paean to anti-authority
    and activism, to "Vocabularies", a paean to a new
    realization of language which includes ALL people.

    Superfuzz Bigmuff EP

    Rock & roll got a badly needed revitalizing overhaul with Seattle's grunge explosion of the late 1980's, and Mudhoney was there to make sure it got done right. Although nearly eclipsed by the success of such bands as Nirvana and Pearl Jam, Mudhoney was arguably the most important grunge band of all. Their Touch Me I'm Sick defined a generation of disenchanted middle-class malcontents bored stiff by the predictable mire that rock & roll had become.


    Superfuzz Bigmuff compiles the band's rare early singles in one convenient package. Twelve essential tracks here, and they all rock mightily. If you're old enough you'll want to say that you were there, if you know what you're talking about, folks might believe you. Do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself with the rock & roll revival that was Mudhoney.
