    Rock Dust Light Star

    Rock Dust Light Star is the seventh album from British Jazz Funk pioneers Jamiroquai. Fronted by the charismatic Jay Kay, this is the band's first album in five years, following Dynamite with the kind of catchiness that made Jamiroquai a household name. Recorded between Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, and Thailand, Rock Dust Light Star features the single 'Blue Skies', a Take That-esque uplifting pop song - a departure from tracks such as 'Space Cowboy'. This record shows the group's talent remains as strong as it was in 1994.

    Lobby Star

    Kitty has a playfulness and humour in her lyrics that I envy very much, and I know it won't be long until the rest of the world discovers many other things to love about her too. Finn Andrews (The Veils) // Lobby Star is Kitty Finer's debut EP, recorded at Bark studio, London and engineered/co-produced by Brian O'Shaughnessy (Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine). Guest musicians on the EP include Kitty's father Jem Finer alongside his own band mates Andrew Ranken and Darryl Hunt of The Pogues, Debsey Wykes (Dolly Mixture, Coming Up Roses and St Etienne) Finn Andrews (The Veils) and brass provided by Kitty's old school friends The JJ Horns. LOBBY STAR is an introduction to the worldly Londoner, Kitty Finer. These six tracks set the tone and welcome you to her sound which crosses genres, spans time, travels the world and lands on your decks today. Influenced by her mother's records (Wreckless Eric, The Ramones, The Nips, Kirsty MacColl, The Ronettes, DollyMixture, John Cooper Clarke, Blondie, Pulp, Peaches and Bongwater) Kitty Finer arrives at a sound that combines the soul, pop, punk, garage rock and 60s Girl band influences.

    Junky Star

    Ryan Bingham and The Dead Horses' new album Junky Star follows-up the Lost Highway releases Mescalito (2007) and Roadhouse Sun (2009). Bingham recently won the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Original Song for The Weary Kind (Theme From Crazy Heart), which he co-wrote with multi-Grammy Award-winning producer/musician T-Bone Burnett. The collaboration between Bingham and Burnett developed into a solid artistic relationship during the Crazy Heart recordings, and as a result, Burnett signed on to produce Junky Star.


    All 12 songs on Junky Star were written by Bingham and performed by his longtime band The Dead Horses, featuring Matt Smith (drums), Elijah Ford (bass) and Corby Shaub (guitar/mandolin). Burnett created a recording environment that perfectly complimented the themes and textures of Binghams reflective songwriting and gravelly voice. The tracks on Junky Star range from narratives with vivid imagery (The Poet), to introspective confessionals (Hallelujah), to bluesy roadhouse stomps (Direction Of The Wind) to Sticky Fingers-era Stones (Depression) and the compelling folk balladry of Yesterdays Blues and Lay My Head On The Rail.

    Star Wars

    Star Wars is the Grammy-award winning band's ninth studio album and its first since 2011's The Whole Love.


    The new album was recorded at the band's Chicago loft and features 11 original Wilco-penned tunes. Wilco is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary, and its label dBpm has recently released two anniversary-related collections: Alpha Mike Foxtrot, a box set of rarities and What's Your 20?, a compilation of studio tracks from the band's first eight albums.


    "We've been feeling very fortunate lately being reminded of how long we've been able to do this," Tweedy said. "We believe one of the primary reasons for our good fortune has been our audiences reaction to our impulse to be heard and our habit of erring on the side of that desire to override financial ambition. Not that we don't enjoy getting paid. We do. But this is a recommitment to the idea that music is more important to our lives. Art is more worthy of our striving. And fun is more sustaining than cash. It's not intended to be a comment on the music business, just one band's wish to give our fans a jolt of joy: a fun surprise. In that spirit we hope you will accept this gift and if not, well, maybe next time."

    Ancestral Star

    Evan Caminiti (guitars, vocals) and Jon Porras (guitars, vocals, drums, harmonium) met in San Francisco in 2006 and immediately started playing music together. Over the next four years, the two gradually sculpted a vast collection of hazy desert sky meditations; ominous, barren expanses of music for desert walks at dusk and dark, pastoral passages embellished with psychedelic and atmospheric wash. A mixture between devotional ragas and dusty stomp with atmosphere and production that references shoegaze and black metal influences.


    Ancestral Star, their third LP, marks the evolution of the Barn Owl sound into a territory where it has become wholly its own, transcending the sum of its influences and taking on a life of its own. At the same time, it is a more realized extension of that sound. Caminiti and Porras paid close attention to the composition of each track and its flow within the album as a whole. Engaging throughout, every moment contributes to an overall feeling of mysterious desert expanse and a sonic narrative that unfurls like a cinematic metaphysical western.

    Star Destroyer

    On their debut full-length, this NY-based quintet have demonstrated their penchant for the electro organic; seamlessly blending the sharp and gentle, like a chain gang draped in organza. Think Can or Faust all mashed up with the personal disco of Arthur Russell. Think of the electric organ of Terry Riley's Shri Camel, slowly morphing and perpetually in motion, but remaining in step with a guitar-less and Moroder-charged Sparks. And think of a more composed Dead C, where Michael Morley sings about Big Thunder Mountain while holding a beach ball in one hand and fending off the digital shards of musique concr?te humming around his ears with the other.

    Double Star (On Sale)

    Limited Edition



    Just ten years ago, Rick Rizzo and Tara Key put the finishing touches on their Thrill Jockey debut, Dark Edson Tiger, did a few live shows including All Tomorrow's Parties at Camber Sands, and jubilantly declared the whole affair a rousing success, vowing to ride the tsunami swell of momentum into their next project.



    And now, in a Van Winkle like-daze, they are back, a new batch of instrumental collaborations ready to test the brave new decade. It would be easy to say that they simply wanted to wait out the debacle of poor government and unmitigated corporate greed, but truth be told, the seeds for Double Star were sown in early live New York City sessions with bassist Tim Harris not long after the Dark Edson dust had settled. These let-the-tape-roll sessions produced some of the guitar psychedelia that long-time observers might have expected from these two, including the epic tracks that now comprise Noisy Attic as well as the genesis of Interruptive Organ.



    The DNA for this album of course lies in their respective Kentucky punk rock roots, but a lot of living has been done between then and now. Double Star is a barrel-aged kind of record, sometimes inviting small fragrant sips, but sometimes asking you to knock one back and burn the throat a little. Worth waiting a decade for.

    Tied To A Star

    J Mascis' Tied to a Star is the follow up to his acclaimed Sub Pop debut
    Several Shades of Why. The album, led by the songs "Every Morning"
    and "Wide Awake," was recorded and produced by Mascis and mixed
    by John Agnello at Bisquiteen in Amherst, MA.


    It makes perfect sense that I was asked to write a bio for J Mascis.
    Let's face it, he and I have a long history. It all started the first time I
    saw him live. It was in New York City. I don't remember when or where,
    but I think he was walking around. I was probably walking around, too.
    The second time was also in New York, at a Mexican restaurant in the
    East Village (the one that takes credit cards now, but didn't used to).
    Years later I actually met him at the SXSW festival though a friend who
    works at Sub Pop. I guess that meeting went well, because when that
    friend from Sub Pop got married, she sat me at the same table as J.
    Sounds unbelievable? I suggest you look at the picture below. Now keep
    staring at that picture until... J's new acoustic
    album Tied to a Star comes out on Sub Pop Records. It features
    appearances by Ken Maiuri (Young@Heart Chorus), Pall Jenkins (Black
    Heart Procession), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Chan Marshall
    (Cat Power). Had I been in the area, I'm sure I would've been asked to
    play on it, too.

    A Wizard A True Star


    Celebrate 4 Decades Of A Wizard, A True Star On 2 Lp's For Maximum Audiophile Sound!


    First Time Audiophile Vinyl Presentation Of This 1973 Masterwork!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Bearsville Records Tapes


    Features The Original LP Cover Elements Not Seen In Decades


    As founding member of the late sixties Philly rockers Nazz, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter and producer Todd
    Rundgren was barely in his 20's when he began his long solo journey and became one of the music industry's most prolific and
    celebrated rock artists.


    For his very lengthy (close to sixty minutes) 4th album A Wizard, A True Star, the legendary Todd Rundgren delivered a huge
    album event complete with 19 stellar performances making this one of his most revered efforts of his four decade career. As with
    many of his solo albums, Todd played all of the instruments, sang, wrote 17 of the 19 tunes and produced this masterwork. The
    album also catapulted Todd Rundgren's marquee as a singer/songwriter even further with his smash radio hits Just One Victory,
    Sometimes I Don't Know What to Feel and his brilliant Philly soul R&B Medley: I'm So Proud, Ooh Ooh Baby, La La Means I Love You
    and Cool Jerk.


    Album opener International Feel immediately brings the listener onto a hypnotic prog-rock journey as only Todd Rundgren can
    deliver. With solid tracks like You Need Your Head, filled with exceptional guitar work, solid lyrical imagery and his rockin' vocals, the
    artist truly pours it all out on this album. More Todd favorites abound as When The Shit Hits The Fan: Sunset Blvd. sets the stage for
    the rest of this masterwork into full swing.


    Known to write some very key ballads in his long career, Todd nails one of his finest ever with his brilliant Philly soul sound
    on the aforementioned Sometimes I Don't Know What to Feel. Soon to be followed with more classic rockers like pop infused Does
    Anybody Love You and the iconic album closer Just One Victory, all would go on to become Todd Rundgren staples and some of his
    most enduring work ever recorded.


    This amazing album hasn't been on vinyl for several decades that is until now Friday Music is honored to announce for the
    first time ever release on two (2) 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl LP's, the classic Todd Rundgren masterwork A Wizard, A True Star. As a

    The Best Of Big Star

    Though power-pop forefathers Big Star were active for just a few short years in the early-mid 1970s, the Memphis band has gone on to become one of the most influential artists in modern music, with a cult status that few can compete with. This new compilation celebrates Big Star with 16 tracks spanning all 3 of their LPs (1972's #1 Record, 1974's Radio City and Third, released after the group disbanded, in 1978), and features rare single versions of some of their most popular songs. Includes liner notes from GRAMMY-winning writer and director Robert Gordon, plus an introduction by sole surviving Big Star member, drummer Jody Stephens.

    The second in Numeros series of peeks into the world of regional studios hones in on Mickey Rouses Lowland operation out of Beaumont, Texas. Long after the Boppers plane crashed and the Winter brothers (Johnny and Edgar) and Janis Joplin split, Texas Golden Triangle was home to a vibrant scene of musicians, songwriters, and entrepreneurs just trying to make it in Houston, let alone the world.


    From the ashes of a vibrant garage and stage band scene, the Lowland studio and its clientele were formed. Holed up in a rundown strip mall, groups like Mourning Sun, Insight Out, Sage, Sassy, Mother Lion, Hope, Circus, and Boot Hill tracked out hundreds of demos, most of which were put on the shelf and left to bake in the South East Texas heat. Until now.


    Over the last two years, Numero has painstakingly gone through every tape in the studios archives, selecting the best of the best (28 for this 2xLP) for this peerless compilation. The songs themselves run the gamut; southern boogie rock, CSNY clones, British blues thunder, garage-psych hangovers, Morricone-esque supper club instrumentals, yacht rock, and what can only be described as Bobby McPherin fronting the Velvet Underground, are threaded together in the way only a tightly-knit scene can be. Forget bringing these treasures back to life, Numeros giving them the life they never had.

    The Hot Rock

    "Sleater-Kinney is America's best rock band" - Greil Marcus, Time (2001)


    Sleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in
    Olympia, Washington in 1994. The band's core lineup consists of Corin
    Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and
    Janet Weiss (drums). Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist,
    left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie
    rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest.


    The Hot Rock is the fourth studio album by Sleater-Kinney, originally
    released on February 23, 1999 by Kill Rock Stars. It was produced by
    Roger Moutenot and recorded at Avast studio in Seattle, Washington in
    July 1998.


    The Hot Rock reached number 181 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart
    and number 12 on the Heatseekers Albums chart, becoming the first
    Sleater-Kinney album to enter the charts. The Hot Rock appeared at
    number 23 in The Village Voice's "Pazz & Jop" critics' poll for 1999.
    Similarly, Spin placed The Hot Rock at number 18 in its list of The Top
    20 Albums of 1999. In 2002, Rolling Stone ranked the album at
    number 17 on its list of Women in Rock: The 50 Essential Albums.
    "The expansive new sound gives Sleater-Kinney room to experiment
    with their Husker Du-style storytelling... They've earned the right to keep
    reinventing themselves. - Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone


    Tucker explores what her voice can do when it's not in overdrive,
    stretching vowels like a religious supplicant or spewing prosody like Patti
    Smith. At the same time, Brownstein blossoms as a singer herself [...]
    braiding lines with Tucker so artfully the result sounds like the voicings
    of a single restless mind. [Grade: A] - Will Hermes, Entertainment
    Weekly.


    The album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release.
    This reissue coincides with Sub Pop's release of
    remastered versions of Sleater-Kinney's six other albums, as well as a
    limited-edition, deluxe vinyl box set featuring all seven albums.

    Rock And Roll Over


    180g Audiophile Vinyl Reissue


    Remastered To High Definition 192kHz/24-bit Audio For Maximum Fidelity


    Celebrating four decades of decibels, KISS, Mercury Records and UMe proudly announce reissuing the legendary KISS albums on 180g audiophile vinyl. Remastered to high definition 192kHz/24-bit audio for maximum fidelity, these albums have never sounded so amazing and now
    vinyl collectors will get what they've been demanding. All posters, sleeve art, stickers, etc that appeared in the original LP release where applicable have
    been faithfully reproduced for the KISS Army.


    With the massive success of their previous album, the experimental Bob Ezrin-produced Destroyer (which contained the surprise ballad hit Beth), Kiss could have taken the safe route and continued in that direction -- or return to the raw hard rock of their first four albums. They chose the latter. Hooking back up with Eddie Kramer, the producer of their 1975 breakthrough release Alive! and their very first demo, Kiss rented out the Nanuet Star Theater in upstate New York to record their next album, Rock and Roll Over. With a more direct, in-your-face production, Rock and Roll Over is one of Kiss' most consistent records. Two of the album's best tracks became hit singles -- the sleazy hard rocker Calling Dr. Love and an acoustic ballad that was originally intended for Rod Stewart, Hard Luck Woman (later covered by country star Garth Brooks). But like all other classic rock albums, the lesser-known material is often just as strong -- I Want You and Makin' Love became concert staples over the years, while Mr. Speed is one of the most underrated songs in Kiss' catalogue. Also included are the fan favorites Take Me, Ladies Room, Love 'Em and Leave 'Em, and the original version of See You in Your Dreams, which was later re-recorded for Gene Simmons' 1978 solo album.
