    Flight of the Conchords

    Acclaimed Kiwi novelty band Flight of the Conchords follow the release of their six-track Grammy Award winning CD/EP The Distant Future with their full-length record album debut, the conveniently titled Flight of the Conchords (which, not at all coincidentally is also the name of their HBO television series). Produced by Mickey Petralia (Beck Midnight Vultures, Ladytron Light & Sound) in Los Angeles, New York and Wellington, the album features fully fleshed-out and professionally recorded versions of Flight of the Conchords concert and television favorites. And its release finally renders pointless all the inexpert fan-made audio transfers (the modern day equivalent of holding a microphone up to the television speaker and shouting at your mom to be quiet), which have bloated hard drives the world over. The songs are heard here in expanded but reverent arrangements. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement's trademark acoustic guitars lead the blitz, backed by a diverse array of instrumentation and production technique. And, the album sounds legitimate and musically, it's incredible, but, as Shakespeare said, Does it funny? Happily, yes. If amazing, delightful and hilarious is your idea of funny, then prepare for undisappointment! These 15 songs pay homage to Pet Shop Boys, censorship, Marvin Gaye, sexism, Shabba Ranks, and backhanded compliments. To be blunt, if you can't find a rire ou sourire in the FSL study guide of opening track, Foux du Fafa, then, please notice, vous tes malade.

    Elysium

    Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe recorded 'Elysium' in Los Angeles in early 2012, the first time they have recorded an album in America. They co-produced the record with US producer Andrew Dawson, who has won three Grammys for his work on Kanye West's albums.


    'Elysium' features twelve new songs which display a warm, deep electronic sound, and includes orchestral arrangements by Joachim Horsley, Andrew Dawson, and Ben Leathers. Backing vocals are provided on many of the tracks by veteran singers Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters (whose long career spans sessions with The Jackson Five to Adele), and singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy.


    Pet Shop Boys said: It was inspiring to make an album in Los Angeles, and to work with a producer from a different musical genre, who has brought a new dimension to our music.

    Sounds From Nowheresville

    British duo The Ting Tings (Jules De Martino and Katie White) return with their highly anticipated sophomore album, Sounds From Nowheresville on Columbia Records. Featuring the signature pop sensibilities and catchy rhythms of its breakout predecessor We Started Nothing (2008) and heart on sleeve homages to influences like the Beastie Boys, Fleetwood Mac and the Pet Shop Boys, the 10-song collection serves as both a natural progression and the perfect follow-up all in one. Highlights include first single Hang It Up, synth-pop cut Silence and the sing-along anthems Guggenheim and Day to Day among others.

    Tomorrow's World

    Mute has announced the first vinyl release of Tomorrow's
    World by Erasure, their 14th album originally released in
    2011.


    Written by Vince Clarke and Andy Bell in New York,
    London, and at Clarke's cabin studio in Maine with
    producer Frankmusik (Lady Gaga, Pet Shop Boys), the
    release found Erasure settling nicely into that groove that
    the best veteran bands often do. With Clarke's vintage
    collection of analog synths providing the final touch,
    the end result is a collection of electronic songs that
    sound contemporary and classic at the same time with
    all the hallmarks of vintage Erasure: accessible songs,
    flamboyant vocals and fizzing synths.

    2. Fill Us With Fire

    Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    Richard Youngs' voice finds its inner Bowie among bright, hypnotic loops on Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits. But let it be known: this collection of house-inspired gems displays much more than a capacity for pop emulation. Its a confirmation of Youngs craft and prowess, no matter the terrain. With enviable grace, experimental minimalist Youngs sets his sights on the pop world and claims it as his own. Youngs heretofore unknown love of Pet Shop Boys and the Madchester sound is reimagined via his unique avant sensibility and atmospheric wand strokes. Originally released in 2009 as a very-limited CD-R on Paines Sonic Oyster label, Jagjaguwar is honored to present Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits, remastered and on vinyl for the first time.

    Flag

    Flag is a 1988 album by the enterprising and influential Swiss electronica sound-art group Yello consisting of vocalist/conceptualist Dieter Meier and composer/arranger Boris Blank. By far the most successful pop export from their country, Yello has often been mentioned in the same breath as other legendary pop duos like the Pet Shop Boys, Wham, Eurythmics and Sparks.


    Known for their signature mix of electronic collage music and manipulated audio-visual vocals, Flag boasts its lion's share of both as heard on the the seminal singles Tied Up, Blazing Saddles and The Race.


    Their trans-global studio-trick-sound is a branch of music that defies categorization to this day. What can you possibly call a crossing of avant-garde pop, fake-rap and sound witchcraft with a headstrong mix of funk and humor, pre-techno and snappy woodwinds? You can call it idiosyncratic, eccentric and exceptional to start! 180g audiophile vinyl reissue from Music On Vinyl.

    The New Hovering Dog

    BJ Cole came to prominence in the early 1970s with the country rock outfit, Cochise. His signature pedal steel playing has marked numerous LPs including ones by T Rex, Elton John (Tumbleweed Connection and Madman Across the Water), Cat Stevens, Bjork, The Verve, Depeche Mode, Beck, Elvis Costello, David Gilmour, Emmylou Harris, Pet Shop Boys, Robert Plant, Scott Walker, and the list goes on. The man Sting once described as "the best pedal steel player in the world" is versed in many styles from pop, rock, jazz to experimental. His versatility is perhaps no better showcased than on his first solo album The New Hovering Dog; it combines poetry with orchestration and electronics with a strong cast of musicians from that era. Originally released in 1972 on United Artists, it is now available again on LP after 40 years, remastered and two bonus tracks added.

    Bronson Soundtrack

    Before "Drive", Nicolas Winding Refn directed "Bronson". The film, starring Tom Hardy, tells the story of Charles Bronson, a young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a post office and eventually ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement. He has become the most notorious inmate in England. "Bronson" already features elements that we associate with Nicolas Winding Refn's films, such as its pumping soundtrack. A modern "Clockwork Orange", "Bronson" features unforgettable music between the recurring electro-pop "Digital Versicolor" by Glass Candy, the menacing "The Electrician" by The Walker Brothers and music by the likes of New Order and Pet Shop Boys. Balancing this modern act, the film includes beautiful classical compositions by Giuseppe Verdi, Richard Wagner, Anton Bruckner and more!

    No Matter What

    To deny reality is to create conict, he always tells us. No one knows how it happened, or when - but here in the last
    known metropolis on Earth, where all public memory has been erased, Evan Ønly is on a mission to recover the promise
    of our future. He works among other maverick scientists, artists, and revolutionaries in shadow, intent on piecing
    together our shattered history. It was mass denial that led us to the state we're in, Ønly is on a mission to prevent us
    from making the same mistake.


    His material draws inspiration from the classic "future vintage" synth pop he discovered through his archival
    explorations. His work is evocative of British pioneers Pet Shop Boys, La Roux, and David Bowie's "Let's Dance". The
    debut Evan Ønly EP, No Matter What, is a highly-evolved synth rock record. Produced by Ice Choir's Kurt Feldman at
    the pristine Winter Station, these rst six songs are personal anthems turned psychological pop. Ønly creates music in
    the belief that pop can still change the way we see ourselves and the world - the one we've inherited and the ones we'll
    build next.

    International

    To put it bluntly, Lust For Youth's International is unrecognizable as a Lust For
    Youth record on first listen. Hannes Norrvide's previous solo albums under the
    Lust for Youth moniker have been described as "dark, cold, atonal, tormented,
    lonely, and lower than lo-fi." The approach on International has shifted dramatically. Writing as a three-piece now, with longtime live collaborator Loke Rahbek
    and new band member Malthe Fisher, who produces and plays guitar, LFY have
    entered a completely new territory. The result is stunning. International is a
    buoyant synth masterpiece in the vein of early Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys
    and New Order. Norrvide's work has always had pop sensibilities buried deep
    in the reverb, but the hooks are front and center on International, and there is
    nothing lo-fi about it.


    That is not to say the record is without substance. There are still some deeply
    introspective moments as well, notably the instrumental passages "Ultras" and
    "Basorexia," which evoke the morning-after loneliness that a lot of earlier LFY
    work has explored. According to Rahbek, "the record sort of happened by
    chance. Hannes and I had talked about recording some stuff together for the
    fun of it, and Malthe offered to help us record. Initially, we were just going to do
    a song or two, but within a few weeks it was obvious that it was a combination
    that worked. The period was strange, terrible things happened in everyone's life
    outside of the studio, so as a result many hours were spent in the studio, like a
    safe zone."


    "As the title indicates," Rahbek adds, "the record deals with the rootless, sometimes almost inhuman, nature of traveling and touring. Hotel rooms and
    strangers' beds, drugs and clubs, and the impossibility of living a regular life." It
    may be an irregular life, but nothing could suit them better. International is Norrvide's magnum opus, and with Fisher's production and Rahbek's co-writing
    skills, the potential this band has always shown has been fully realized.

    Calico Review

    If you drive past the 200 block of South La Brea, there is a lamp shop, a pet shop, and a little glass door that says "Casting Agency" above it. Inside you'll find one of LA's most stereotypical rituals, where men & women from all walks of life vie for the attention and popularity of the Hollywood producer. It's a dream factory for some of them. It's also a place where Los Angeles outsiders learn what the city is really like, beyond the sun and surf and celebrities, where every brightly-lit surface eventually faces a cloud.


    Indeed, the lessons learned by the Allah-Las - guitarists Miles Michaud and Pedrum Siadatian, bassist Spencer Dunham, drummer Matthew Correia - since their auspicious formation in 2008 have been tempered with experience. Now, with their third album Calico Review (their first for Mexican Summer), their experience transforms once more, this time into wisdom. The band's trajectory, formed around mutual appreciation for the same kinds of music and a host of shared experiences, focuses on both the outer trappings of their home and surroundings, and the through line of darkness that suffuses life in LA county.


    Where the Allah-Las display their insight, and what really shines across the 12 songs that comprise Calico Review, is the way that the group has pivoted from specific influences and nods to the music they love, to crafting the feelings of freedom, grit, and melancholy in their music. That feeling - the peerless capture of music long in the tradition and mood of California pop, the sound that's captured the essence of the LA experience - aligns with their stylistic technique and their experience in the studio environment to create their strongest album to date, one which showcases their developments in songwriting and arrangements.


    The process began with their self-titled debut, which captured the Allah-Las' live set circa 2012 and continued onward with 2014's Worship the Sun, where they began to experiment with overdubs and writing songs individually instead of as a band. Now, Calico Review showcases a band that's grown confident in its own style to reflect the perspectives of each member, to craft an album that changes up the approach from song-to-song, while retaining their abilities as a cohesive unit.


    Audiences familiar with the band will recognize the levels of nuance and steadiness the Allah-Las have grown into throughout Calico Review. It's immediate, the first thing you recognize about the band in the opening moves of "Strange Heat," in the amount of control and character burning off of the band's knack for restraint. Songs like "Famous Phone Figure" cradle character sketches over delicate strains of violin, organ, and Mellotron, Correia's drumming carefully underlining a three-note theme that casts a phantom sadness over the proceedings, the group exerting a touch both light and steady enough to bring your mood to theirs. "


    Could Be You" works off a steady percussive gallop, guitarist Miles Michaud waxing reflexively on second chances while the band focuses on forward motion. "Roadside Memorial" applies the Bo Diddley beat to the open road, Pedrum Siadatian stepping up on vocals, and finding new ways to match his talents to propulsive musical ends. Elsewhere, "High & Dry," featuring drummer Matthew Correia on lead vocals, focuses on the Allah-Las most quintessential and peerless quality: writing emotionally resonant pop, at once direct and detached, casual and knowing, and instantly memorable. The dream factory itself gets called out in the fun, surf-stung number "200 South La Brea," its carnival-like atmosphere reflecting the excitement and anxiety of those who await their judgment.


    In between releases, the Allah-Las have toured around the world, and will continue that journey in support of Calico Review. The experience of traveling and idle time on tour inspired the group in different ways, and provided the pathways by which the band transports its listeners to a different place, be that wherever they are, and where the band has been.


    What the Allah-Las present is not necessarily crossing the L.A. River, coin in mouth, on the Riverboat Styx. It's not Raymond Chandler and it's not Raymond Carver. But the band's four members are aware of the pitfalls that stack against the idyllic notion of southern California life that forms from outside of the city. It's a siren call to the hopeful, and it's a successful town for tempering dreams into wakeful reality. Even with over 8,000 people per square mile, there is room for everyone, and then some, to be completely alone, by choice or otherwise.


    Calico Review bears the mark of four students becoming the teachers, sharing the sentiments of the town they call home. Join them. There's a lot to learn.

    The Smile Sessions Box Set

    With the full participation of original Beach Boys Al Jardine, Mike Love, and Brian Wilson, Capitol/EMI has, for the first time, collected and compiled the bands legendary 1966-67 sessions for the never-completed SMiLE album.


    In numerous sessions between the spring of 1966 and the summer of 1967, The Beach Boys recorded a bounty of songs and drafts for an album, SMiLE, that was intended to follow the band's 1966 masterpiece, Pet Sounds. The master tapes were ultimately shelved, and The Beach Boys' SMiLE has never been released. Drawn from the original masters, The SMiLE Sessions presents an in-depth overview of The Beach Boys' recording sessions for the enigmatic album, which has achieved legendary, mythical status for music fans around the world.


    This expanded, boxed edition of The SMiLE Sessions features the main SMiLE album tracks, plus four CDs of additional audio from the legendary sessions, a double vinyl LP set, and two 7 vinyl singles. The deluxe box also contains a 60-page hardbound book with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia from The Beach Boys archive and newly-written essays by Beach Boys Al Jardine, Mike Love, Brian Wilson, and Bruce Johnston, as well as by Beach Boys historian and author Domenic Priore and many other inner-circle participants.


    Produced by Brian Wilson, Mark Linett, Alan Boyd and Dennis Wolfe in Los Angeles The SMiLE Sessions box set includes an assembled collection of core session tracks. It also delves much deeper into the sessions, adding early song drafts, alternate takes, instrumental and vocals-only mixes, and studio chatter. The SMiLE Sessions invites the listener into the studio to experience the album's creation, with producer, singer and bassist Brian Wilson's vision leading the way as he guides his fellow Beach Boys, singer Mike Love, drummer Dennis Wilson, lead guitarist Carl Wilson, rhythm guitarist Al Jardine, and newest member Bruce Johnston (who'd replaced Brian Wilson in the touring group during 1965), through the legendary sessions.


    Artwork for all of The SMiLE Sessions has been created with and inspired by Beat-Pop artist Frank Holmes original 1967 LP sleeve art and booklet designs intended for the SMiLE album. With its three-dimensional shadowbox lid, The SMiLE Sessions box set offers a whimsical peek inside the storied SMiLE Shop.


    When Capitol/EMI and The Beach Boys first announced plans for The SMiLE Sessions 2011 release, the news spread rapidly. Pitchfork reported, The Beach Boys SMiLE is quite possibly the most storied album in rock history, Billboard proclaimed the upcoming release an event that pop music fans have been waiting for since the Summer of Love, and The Washington Post called SMiLE the most legendary unreleased album of all time.


    The best efforts have been taken by The Beach Boys, the producers, and Capitol/EMI to present the SMiLE album sessions most vital and fascinating elements. However, there will no doubt be some debate amongst Beach Boys fans around the world who, during the past four decades, have become familiar with a variety of widely-traded bootlegged bits and pieces from the sessions. As recently explained by the Detroit Metro Times, No album, released or not, has generated a more personal relationship with its audience, since no two people can ever agree on its content and purpose.


    Beginning with Good Vibrations, The Beach Boys best-selling record in a long string of hits, Brian Wilson had begun to construct songs in a modular form, crafting individual sections that would later be edited together to form a coherent whole. In several intense bursts of creative energy, Wilson, drawing on the talents of the finest studio musicians in Los Angeles and utilizing the best studio facilities available on any given day, laid down dozens of musical fragments, all designed to fit together in any number of possible combinations. No one had done this before in pop music, and his next endeavor would be an album-length version of this unique and luxurious songwriting parlance: SMiLE.


    In 1965, Brian Wilson met an up-and-coming session keyboard player and songwriter, Van Dyke Parks. Noticing Parks' conversational eloquence, Wilson felt that he could help to volley The Beach Boys songwriting into the wave of broader-messaged and socially-conscious rock 'n' roll that would come to define the '60s. They were soon collaborating on keynote songs for SMiLE, including Heroes And Villains, the bands follow-up single to Good Vibrations. Wilson and Parks would also co-write Surf's Up, Vega-Tables, Cabin Essence, Do You Like Worms, Wonderful, Wind Chimes, and other pieces of the SMiLE tapestry. Parks also introduced Frank Holmes to create album sleeve art and a booklet interpreting the albums James Joyce-mode lyrics.


    The reason SMiLE did not see a release in 1967 had more to do with back room business that obscured the creative side of the program than anything else. In late 1966, The Beach Boys formed Brother Records, initially to produce outside artists. Soon, however, The Beach Boys would become embroiled in a court action with Capitol Records with the goal to become the top-selling artists on their self-owned, independent label. The group withheld Heroes And Villains and announced they would instead release Vega-Tables recorded with the bands own money in April of '67 on Brother Records. By July of 1967, Capitol Records and The Beach Boys had come to terms, with Capitol agreeing to distribute the bands Brother Records, and it was agreed that SMiLE was no longer to be the bands next album.

    Good Thing (Out of Stock)

    80's Icon - Paul Young Returns With His First Album In 20 years - Good Thing


    Paul remembered for his Billboard Top 10 Hit - Everytime You Go Away, his Gold selling album 'The Secret Of Association' & performance at Live Aid. He was one of the biggest stars of the era, on both sides of the Atlantic.


    Executive producer and partner in the 'Good Thing' project is world renowned Arthur Baker, best known for his work with hip hop artists like Afrika Bambaataa & Planet Patrol, crossover pop acts New Order and the Pet Shop Boys, here he channels some of his later work with Al Green. The album is a collection of classic soul covers and sees Paul return to the soulful roots sound that catapulted him to worldwide fame.


    Stemming from Memphis soul as a starting point; which is why Stax Records (a major factor in the creation of Southern and Memphis Soul) feature so heavily on this new album. From Al Green's 'L-O-V-E', The Staple Singer's 'Touch A Hand, Make A Friend' and Syl Johnson's 'Back For A Taste Of Your Love', & Jonnie Taylor's 'I Believe In You' - 'Good Thing' is, in Paul's opinion, the cream of soul in one collection:


    "This album is a labor of love, my soulful dream realized for everyone to now share," states Paul. "I've carefully selected and re-recorded some of the most beautiful, iconic and rare soul tracks of all time and I hope people enjoy this album as much as I've loved creating it."
