Muddy Waters, the undisputed king of Chicago blues, hit a string of highly successful albums in the late 70s. In between Hard Again and King Bee came in 1978 I'm Ready, a powerful blues record containing new material and classic reworks. Driving blues burners such as Willie Dixon's "I'm Ready" and "Rock Me" are varied by slow jams like "33 Years", "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Screamin' And Cryin'". Muddy is clearly feeling alright with these song selections. As on Hard Again, Johnny Winter is taking care of the production duties, allowing I'm Ready to be a spontaneous outburst of pure bluesyness, with a lively feel.1. I'm Ready

Take Care, Take Care, Take CareIn the four years since the release of Explosions In The Sky's previous album, All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone, they've amassed a steady stream of unlikely achievements for a band most known for stirring instrumentals that often push the 10 minute mark. They toured with The Flaming Lips, headlined a sold-out Central Park concert, performed on the legendary Austin City Limits television program, and curated the world-renowned ATP Festival, all with the humble resolve of a band who still hauls all of their own gear on and off the stage every night. And let's not forget their indelible impact on the cultural landscape of film and television since their breakthrough score for Friday Night Lights marked an aesthetic shift towards evocative, real-life grittiness in mainstream cinema.
On their fifth album, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, the band take some of their greatest creative leaps yet, experimenting with layers of haunting, unplaceable sounds, euphoric vocals, classical guitar, body percussion, Japanese singing bowls and more. With solitary focus and collaborative vision, each instrument clearly exudes the spirit and inspiration of its player, squeezing more expression and lyricism out of guitars and drums than most singers could ever conjure with their voices.1.

Audeze Leather Care KitHave a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.
Like many quality products some easy maintenance will add longevity to your Audeze headphones. We craft our LCD earpads and headbands with premium leather and recommend you protect them from dust, dirt, oils, and everyday wear with our Custom Leather Care Kit. Doing so assures that the leather remains as soft and lustrous as the day you first put them on.
The Audeze Leather Care Kit includes an environmentally-friendly, plant-based leather conditioner sourced from a local California company. It's made of a blend of premium oils, gentle soap, traditional plant extracts and natural waxes that penetrate deep into the leather to clean, moisturize, protect, and shine.
Navel orange oil and mild soap gently remove dirt, dust and oils. Lanolin, coconut oil and aloe vera condition the leather so it remains supple. Finally, carnauba wax and beeswax offer superior protection of your investment when compared to chemical blends.
Class 100 Cleanroom Wipes
Audeze sampled the microfiber cloths that mass market leather kits provide but found they trapped dust and dirt plus absorbed more conditioner then they released. The ideal match was found in a scientific catalog; class 100 cleanroom wipes cost more to purchase because they're designed to meet specifications for ISO class 5 or higher cleanrooms. Audeze doesn't compromise and they're worth every penny. These soft, ultra-low-lint polyester fabric wipes are absorbent, non-abrasive, machine washable and reusable. They're not just better for your headphones, they're also better for the planet and for you -- we buy them in bulk and pass the savings on to our customers.
Our Custom Leather Care Kit is easy to use. Just apply a pea-sized bead to the supplied cleanroom-approved polyester cloth and gently rub it into the leather on your ear pads and/or headband. The entire process takes less than two minutes.
Leather Care Kit - For Leather Only
A note of caution: Although our Leather Care Kit is perfect for revitalizing your leather headband and earpads it can damage Audeze's non-leather bands and pads.
You'll get one 2-fl. oz. (59 ml) bottle of premium leather conditioner and two machine-washable, cleanroom-quality cleaning wipes.$10.00Audeze Custom Leather Care Kit Buy Now
I Care Because You DoReissue Of Third Album, Originally Released In 1995
The Crowning Achievement In The Aphex Twin Canon
First-Ever Domestic Vinyl Edition
...I Care Because You Do is the third studio album Richard D. James recorded under the Aphex Twin moniker and marks the end of his initial analog era. It's also the crowning achievement in the Aphex Twin canon. Veering from his previous acid house, ambient and general techno undertakings, James builds compositions out of lengthy and intricate drum machine loops, elaborately layered analog synths and intermittent string pieces. The final product comes off like a Replicant dance-party. Never one to take his art too seriously, James infuses ...I Care Because You Do with in-jokes and innuendos. "Ventolin," named after an asthma medicine, is one of the harshest tracks on the album and features a high-pitch frequency that mimics symptoms of tinnitus; "Alberto Balsalm" is named for a British line of hair care products; "Come On You Slags" samples dialog from a pornographic film. Additionally, several of the song titles are anagrams: Aphex Twin is reworked as "Wax the Nip", The Aphex Twin morphs into "The Waxen Pith," "Wet Tip Hen Ax," and "Next Heap With," and Richard David James becomes "Acrid Avid Jam Shred." ...I Care Because You Do's equal infatuation with hip-hop rhythms and melodic counterpoint provides an effective bridge between his pioneering early releases and the cunning explorations of his later work. As much as the front cover self-portrait captures a snapshot of the artist's own image, the music inside provides a glimpse of an artist on the cusp of an invigorating new period of sound experimentation, but still producing his unique blend of melancholy and aggression at an elite level. Generally seen as one of the quintessential IDM releases of all time (and once named by Q Magazine as one of the top 20 loudest albums of all time), the album finds a middle ground between Phillip Glass and the Wu-Tang Clan. Fans of either will not be disappointed.1. Acrid Avid Jam Shred

The WildernessFeatures An 8-Panel Gatefold Jacket With O-Card Slipcase
The Wilderness is Explosions In The Sky's sixth album, and first non-soundtrack release since 2011's Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. True to its title, The Wilderness explores the infinite unknown, utilizing several of the band's own definitions of "space (outer space, mental space, physical geography of space) as compositional tools. The band uses their gift for dynamics and texture in new and unique ways-rather than intuitively fill those empty spaces, they shine a light into them to illuminate all the colors of the dark. From the electronic textures of the opening track to the ambient dissolve of closer "Landing Cliffs," The Wilderness is an aggressively modern and forward-thinking work-one that wouldn't seem the slightest bit out of place on a shelf between original pressings of Meddle and Obscured By Clouds. It is an album where shoegaze, electronic experimentation, punk damaged dub, noise, and ambient folk somehow coexist without a hint of contrivance-and cohere into some of the most memorable and listenable moments of the band's expansive body of work-"proper" studio albums and major motion picture soundtracks alike.
The progressive ambience of early Peter Gabriel, the triumphant romanticism of The Cure in their prime, and the more melancholy moments of Fleetwood Mac all inform the curious beauty of The Wilderness. The uncanny ability to reconcile the tension between discordant, nightmarish cacophony and laid-back, Laurel Canyon-inspired folk-rock is a cornerstone of this album, and the center of Explosions In The Sky's remarkable evolution. If The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place was the defining album of Explosions In The Sky's career, The Wilderness is the band's [re]defining album.1. Wilderness

Field Commander Cohen Tour 1979Available On Vinyl For The First Time
Includes Insert With Song Lyrics
In 1979, after the release of his album Recent Songs [MOVLP311], Cohen set out on an international concert tour accompanied by members of the Austin-based Jazz-Rock group Passenger; Field Commander Cohen was compiled in 2000 from recordings of the 1979 tour, and it presents an especially strong argument for Cohen's gifts as a musician.
This is the first ever vinyl release of these live recordings at London's Hammersmith Odeon and Brighton's Dome Theatre. This may well be Cohen's best set of recorded performances as a singer, and having Jennifer Warnes and Sharon Robinson on hand as duet partners is especially rich icing on the cake. While the musicians take care to never intrude upon the songs, they play beautifully, with remarkable taste and skill; they bring out the nuances of these songs with a sure but gentle hand.LP1

All Around UsClear Vinyl W/ Black Swirl
Briana's lyrics are forceful, and throughout her second album, All Around Us, traditional song structure gives way to plainspoken declarations that pull back the record's shroud. Her first single,Surrender is musically delicate at first, with flickering blips and chords that float into earshot like fireflies. Take Care of Me is the album's brightest and most immediate song, a buoyant celebration of friendship with a skittering beat and a warm, sweet melody. And title track All Around Us is a stark but inspiring beauty, built on the memory of a family member of Briana's who passed away, and the sadness of not being able to say goodbye or I love you one last time. It is the balance of the abstract and the intimate that makes Briana Marela and All Around Us so special.1. Follow It

One Way Street (Box Set)180 Gram 6 LP Box Set
Housed In A Sleeve Reproducing The Art For Its Original Release
One Way Street set compiles the first five solo albums recorded by Mark Lanegan, the Pacific-Northwest icon also known for his work with Screaming Trees, Gutter Twins, Mad Season, Queens of the Stone Age, Isobel Campbell, and more. The Winding Sheet, Mark Lanegan's first solo work, is notable in its departure from the characteristic sound of Screaming Trees, the band he fronted from 1985 until 2000.
Its follow-up, Whiskey for The Holy Ghost, released during the grunge explosion of the early 1990s, showcases Lanegan's growing maturity as a songwriter and vocalist. Scraps at Midnight could be considered the final installment of a trilogy of albums featuring Lanegan's interpretation of American roots music accompanied by his troubling lyrics of loss, sin, and redemption. I'll Take Care of You, Lanegan's fourth solo effort, consists entirely of cover songs with interpretation of songs from a wide variety of songwriters, including Tim Rose, Tim Hardin, Booker T. Jones, and Buck Owens. On Lanegan's fifth and final solo album for Sub Pop, Field Songs, Lanegan seems to have taken the best elements from his previous work to create one of the most fulfilled, and fulfilling, albums of his career; Field Songs also includes "Kimiko's Dream House," which Mark co-wrote with Jeffrey Lee Pierce of The Gun Club.
Three of these five albums have been out of print on vinyl for many years; I'll Take Care of You was only released on vinyl in Europe, and Field Songs was only issued on CD. Each album in the One Way Street box set was pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and is housed in a sleeve reproducing the art for its original release.The Winding Sheet (1990)

I Blame YouBrooklyn, NY's Obits is made up of Rick Froberg, Sohrab Habibion, Greg Simpson, and Scott Gursky. They released their first single, One Cross Apiece b/w Put It in Writing in December of '08 on their own Stint Records label and did some touring with the Constantines and The Night Marchers. Produced by G. Sanoff, E. Janney and Obits, I Blame You is the band's debut full-length album.
We're not into innovation as a band, says Froberg, who's already done his fair share of innovating with Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. I think innovation is overrated and an overestimated quality. Anything that's going to be original is going to happen without your control. Things that make your band sound like you, are things you wouldn't be able to change anyway.

The Sky As Well As SpaceWe last heard from the boys in Memory Map with the release of their 2011 debut LP
"Holiday Band". We couldn't be more excited to see them return with the release of
their sophomore album "The Sky As Well As Space."
With "The Sky as Well as Space", Memory Map continue to esh out their uniquely
guitar-driven blend of indie pop. Few bands straddle song-craft and technical prowess
as eortlessly as Memory Map. Using three guitars (one which cheats its way into
acting as a bass), a three-piece drum kit, and vocals from all four members, Memory
Map organically fuse cascading guitar lines, complex rhythms, and layered vocal
harmonies into shamelessly accessible guitar pop.
In the three years since their debut, Memory Map have gained depth both in
composition and production. The album simultaneously showcases the band at their
most catchy ("Magnetic Center"), menacing ("Dark Freshman"), and emotional
("Order In the Waves", "Antelope Earth").
Why the three-year gap between albums you ask? Well, the delay is largely due to the
popularity of a certain cat. Band member Mike Bridavsky owns and takes care of the
most famous cat on the planet, Lil BUB. And because Memory Map have been so
exible in working around Lil BUB's schedule, the band is ofcially BUB approved.1. The Celebrated Summer

At NewportLimited Edition of 500 on Audiophile Clear Vinyl
The afternoon concerts at the Newport Jazz Festivals usually are given over to the presentation of new jazz talent, new groups, foreign born artists, and "new directions!' Taking care of the latter category at the 1957 show were, prominent among several others, the Cecil Taylor Quartet and the Gryce-Byrd Jazz Lab group. It's doubtful that either had ever played before an audience more attentive, more earnest in its desire to understand (...)I believe the overwhelming majority of jazz fans got some message, and came away convinced that these groups merited many more hearings.

Fitz And The TantrumsFitz and The Tantrums' natural exuberance permeates their new self-titled album, which celebrates walking to the beat of your own drum.
Lead singer, Michael Fitzpatrick, says of the new record, We've always tried to push ourselves at every turn. For our third album, we continued to challenge ourselves, taking care not to write the same record again.
Turn It Up, Fitz exhorts at the top of album opener and first single HandClap. The horn-and-beats fueled track captures the exhilarating sense of promise - and danger - that a night out and a new romance hold. The staccato Complicated paints a relationship that's packed with both chemistry and conflict and bursts into an unexpected cheer. Echo and otherworldly keyboards make Tricky an intoxicating dance-floor anthem and a warning to any future lover, while A Place For Us, the album closer, encapsulates the band's belief that there is a place in the world for each of us to belong, regardless of our differences.
Overall, this is an album about desire - the desire for intimacy, for sex, for acceptance on your own terms and the struggle not to compromise, explains Fitz.
Fitz and The Tantrums was recorded in the band's hometown of Los Angeles. Jesse Shatkin (Sia, Matt & Kim) produced eight of the album's eleven tracks. Fitz produced Fadeback while Joel Little (Lorde) produced Do What You Want and Ricky Reed (Jessie J) helmed HandClap.1. HandClap

MalaLP comes with Bonus CD and 7" Vinyl Single with Two Bonus Tracks
Devendra Banhart releases his Nonesuch debut, Mala, on March 12, 2013. The singer/songwriter co-produced the record with his longtime bandmate, guitarist Noah Georgeson. Banhart's eighth studio album, Mala was recorded in his then-home in Los Angeles. (He now resides in New York City.) He and Georgeson played most of the instruments themselves, using borrowed equipment and a vintage Tascam recorder they'd found in a pawn shop. "A lot of early hip-hop had been made on [the Tascam]," says Banhart. "And knowing my songs are not hip-hop whatsoever, we thought it would be interesting to see how these kinds of songs would sound on equipment that was used to record our favorite rap. Let's see how this technology would work for us." It was a new approach for the pair. "In the past we were more like, let's use the oldest equipment we could find."
Banhart also notes how his voice has developed over the years: "I don't really take care of my voice, but, just like with playing guitar, you get more familiar with it, and you get better at it. I've always said that I'm very good at not knowing how to play the guitar but, really, it's just that I'm very comfortable with the utter uncertainty of my approach."
Banhart's previous release, 2009's What Will We Be, received critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone calling it "the best he's ever made." The Los Angeles Times said the record "found him making comfortable, laid-back folk that didn't sound like a compromise-more like an artist growing into his own."1. Golden Girls

Days Are GoneDays Are Gone is the debut album from indie-rock outfit/sisters Haim.
Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher, Vampire Weekend) and James Ford (Florence and the Machine, Arctic Monkeys), Days Are Gone is an album years in the making. Since their first show as a group, which took place on July 7th, 2007, Haim have been gigging extensively. The first five years we just played every show we could play in L.A., Alana recalls. All we wanted to do was play. Then finally we realized we were playing too much. The sisters credit Casablancas specifcially for advising them that playing too many live shows is not the answer. To that end, the girls have now been more selective when lining up future tours. Still, as Alana explains, it was hard to turn down opening-slot offers from groups they love, specifically Florence and the Machine and Mumford & Sons. They take care of me like I'm their little sister, Alana says of the Mumfords, with whom Haim again will be playing support for later this year.
Ask the girls to describe specific tracks on Days Are Gone and they quickly fire back: If I told you I'd have to kill you, Este deadpans. Wait, really? No clues at all? The thing is, she explains, you can ask me anything about anything and I'll tell you except for our music. The record is something we're tight-lipped about. Haim do reveal that the album contains a healthy dose of the songs they've been playing in their live sets - "Falling," "Forever," "Don't Save Me" - in addition to, as Alana says, a lot of new jams. What little they'll reveal about the new material is that the album's title track was co-written with Jessie Ware and Kid Harpoon.
Rolling Stone had a chance to take the new album for a spin, however. And it's every bit worth the wait. There's palpable maturity in the lyrics: On If I Could Change Your Mind, Danielle is a self-admitted newbie at the whole love thing (I've never done this before/drove a million miles/back when you were mine/I was too young to know you were the one to find); later she's brushing off a former lover on Honey & I, then flat-out giving dude the cold shoulder (Honey, I'm not your honey-pie,) over a ripping electric guitar lick and a bass wobble generally reserved for sweaty dance clubs on the pop-friendly My Song 5. Sonically, the LP is a highly textural affair, from the 8-bit keyboard clatter on the title track to the lush, Eighties-style synths that sizzle throughout Running If You Call My Name.

A Definitive "Rock Of The 80's" Classic Album
Iggy Pop continues to be known as one of the original pioneers of
the punk rock and underground rock movement of the late sixties and
seventies. Thrilling audiences with The Stooges or with his own innovative
solo projects, Iggy's iconic history shows a plethora of amazing albums
over the last 4 decades, truly creating some of the coolest music ever
waxed for the classic rock era.
In 1980, Iggy Pop delivered his hard hitting 80's alternative classic
Soldier for Arista Records. Featuring the David Bowie collaboration Play
It Safe, Solider was a solid effort which continues to be one of his most
revered albums to this day. This stunning release featured a good amount
of staple Iggy Pop classics like I'm A Conservative, Mr. Dynamite, Dog
Food and the hard rockin' Take Care Of Me. Augmented with powerhouse
musicians like Ivan Kral (Patti Smith Group), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols),
Barry Andrews (XTC) and uncredited support from David Bowie and
Simple Minds, this amazing 80's power punk classic hasn't been available
on vinyl for many decades... that is until now!

Sabougla VoicesIn today's frenetically paced world, uncovering a lost treasure is often met with great enthusiasm, excitement, and anticipation. Lost footage of Gene Kelly dancing. A Vincent van Gogh no one knew existed. An Arthur Crudup album lost in a vault for 40 years. Jimi Hendrix material coming to light after 40 years. Well, now we can also celebrate the "discovery" of a blues master stepping into the sunlight, and delivering the best gospel album since Elvis gave us "How Great Thou Art" in February, 1967. The paradox is that Leo Welch has been there all along, living in Sabougla, Mississippi, first playing blues, and then moving to gospel. Born in 1932, Welch grew up playing blues. As his style of blues became less popular, he began to play gospel because churches offered more opportunities to play. Consequently, he was overlooked because blues aficionados frequented juke joints. Most blues lovers would never think to find blues, or blues related music in a church.
After an off-the-cuff call by Welch to Big Legal Mess Records, things continued to fall into place, and he was able to record his debut album, Sabougla Voices. It is really difficult to accurately describe this stunning album, and faithfully convey the vibe, the atmosphere, and way it moves a listener. Welch has poured a lifetime of learning, living, loving, playing, and praying into this work, and it shows!
This album is stripped down, bare bones joyful gospel being played and sung from the heart. This is not your daddy's gospel though. Sabougla Voices is a shot of love to your heart, a cool cleansing breeze blowing through your soul, and an orgasm for your ears. The album opens with "Praise His Name," which is beautifully sparse, raw, and has a great bouncing beat. "You Can't Hurry God" is almost a gospel honky-tonk that has a juke joint vibe. "Take Care Of Me Lord" has a very early Magic Slim and The Teardrops sound to it. "Mother Loves Her Children" is really basic, slow, artfully delicate blues. "Somebody Touched Me" has a mid 1960s Rolling Stones blues flavor, and nice backing vocals. "A Long Journey" is delightfully slow, and begs to be pulled over you like a comforting blanket of blues. "His Holy Name" is gospel as a shuffle, and definitely has the church rocking! The album closes with "The Lord Will Make A Way," an acoustic performance that is slow and stark, but very moving.
If this is Welch's debut alum, we can't wait for the follow-up! This album is definitely a must-have.

A Distortion Of Love (On Sale)A Distortion of Love on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP from Mobile Fidelity
Acclaimed Pianist/Singer's Oft-Neglected 1992 Sophomore Effort Teems With Poetic Enterprise and Intrepid Originality
Smooth, Transparent Sonics Worthy of an Intimate Venue: One of Only Two Barber Albums to Never Have Been Reissued-Until Now
Audiophile Favorite Steams Up Mirrors With Enchanting Melodies, Breathy Vocals, Daring Originality
Patricia Barber's origins are commonly associated with 1994's CafÉ Blue and the follow-up, 1998's Modern Cool. Both quickly established the singer/pianist as an immediate audiophile favorite whose rare combination of astute instrumental performance, daring originality, poetic enterprise, intrepid vocals, and sculpted production announced her as an artist that both takes immense care in her music as well as in her sound. While largely unknown to many, 1992's diverse A Distortion of Love signaled the beginning of Barber's unfettered creativity.
Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered, limited-edition 180 gram LP of the Chicagoan's sophomore album features the similar wowing detail and perspective-altering clarity offered on the reissue label's celebrated versions of Mythologies, The Cole Porter Mix, and the now out-of-print and extremely sought-after CafÉ Blue, Modern Cool, Companion, and Nightclub.
Such is the attention brought to Barber's tastefully reverb-assisted singing, the quartet's stripped-down arrangements, the grand piano's resonance, the background finger snaps, and the astounding transparency of every note and breath uttered in the studio. Smoothness, balance, and neutrality abound. Through and through, this is an audiophile delight.
While national acclaim wouldn't come to Barber until the mid-90s, it wasn't because she didn't provide notice of her monumental talent and MacArthur Grant-worthy inventiveness. On A Distortion of Love, her individuality manifests on a surprisingly eerie rendition of the standard "Summertime" and subsequent "Subway Station No. 5," a lengthy piece adorned with atmospheric nervousness, tonal shifts, and contrapuntal movements that ultimately lead into a swinging theme.
Barber, guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, bassist Marc Johnson, and percussionist Adam Nussbaum achieve like-minded heights on an improvised and clever read of the Temptations' "My Girl." Here, and again especially on the aptly titled "You Stepped Out of a Dream," Barber's textured vocals seemingly float on a jet-black plain, emanating as if her lips and mouth are just feet away, the slap of the acoustic bass and patter of the drums responding in kind to her expressiveness. Whether you're familiar with this album, a longtime Barber fan, or just coming to her for the first time, Mobile Fidelity's pressing of this record will please even the sternest critics of vocal jazz.

Paperback Ghosts (On Sale)COMET GAIN return with their seventh album, following 2011's critically acclaimed "Howl of The Lonely Crowd". Recorded at Soup Studios with producer Simon Trought at the helm, and inspired by the psycho-geography of walks in North London woods and in the forgotten grey hinterland of the city's back streets, "Paperback Ghosts" comes soaked in autumn melancholy. Blending psychedelia, folk-rock, garage muscle and 4am sadness, the songs draw on the esoteric that lies behind the ordinary. Comet Gain are David Charlie Feck (vocals, guitar), Ben Phillipson (guitar), Rachel Evans (vocals), ex-Morrissey/The Meteors drummer Woodie Taylor (percussion), Anne Laure Guillain (keyboards) and new recruit, Clientele bassist James Hornsey - a motley group of like-minded romantics, taking pride in an abject failure to care about the normal band model.. On each album they record, Comet Gain bring together their myriad of influences, creating a cohesive aesthetic between sound, artwork, liner notes and ideas. Paperback Ghosts is no different, offering us a glimpse into a haunted half-world with its strings, yearning harmonies, 12-string acoustic guitars and half-focused vision of pianos in reverb, while remaining at heart a pop record, a richly textured affirmation of Comet Gain's twenty-year anti-career.1.
