Thank You (On Sale)This is Royal Trux's 1995 Virgin label debut produced by long time Neil Young collaborator David Briggs. Thank You was recorded almost completely live in the studio and Briggs' production and influence is readily apparent in this grimy piece of rock'n'roll. Neil Hagerty's guitar playing is wandering into noise land via unique and memorable solos but also transforming into something resembling '70s riffs while Jennifer Herrema outdoes herself and actually sings. Thank You, giving way to some surprisingly catchy tunes, is as good as modern rock classics go. A great, greasy work of non-commercial alternative rock fueled by cigarettes and junk food.

Stranger Heads PrevailGreen Colored Vinyl
New Jersey alt/prog connoisseurs, Thank You Scientist, have announced details of their brand new full-length, Stranger Heads Prevail that will be released via Evil Ink Records. The label is best known for being owned and ran by Coheed and Cambria lead singer, Claudio Sanchez.
Sanchez says of the band, "Thank You Scientist is a rare band that stretches the boundaries of the listener's expectation. Their compositions are a tornado of complexity and style that compel the audience to stay present for every note."
Following the breakout success of their debut label album, Maps Of Non-Existent Places, the band set to follow one simple but resolute goal: no expectations. Constantly writing and with an intense rehearsal schedule, the band began crafting Stranger Heads Prevail together in late 2014 under the watchful ear of guitarist/primary songwriter Tom Monda.
According to Monda, musically the band wanted to make a rock record with multiple layers of compartmentalized detail, a la The Beatles "Abbey Road" or Queens' "Night at the Opera". "This record has a lot of attention to detail, which will hopefully keep people coming back for more. We wanted to make something that held up to both surface listens as well as tailor to listeners who are listening with a microscope of sorts. With more listens, I feel the songs unveil themselves more and more."
Vocalist and lyricist Salvatore Marrano adds, "This is a deeply personal record for me, albeit positive, but I found myself continually needing to find the positive in all of the negative in our lives. We're all just trying to sift through the bullshit to find a bit of hope."1. Prologue: A Faint Applause

Thank YouAlcoa's Thank You EP has its roots set in setbacks. Defeater frontman and Alcoa mastermind Derek Archambault was informed by medical professionals earlier this year that he was in desperate need of a hip replacement. It sadly put any touring plans Defeater had to a grinding halt as Archambault continued to deal with pain and immobility in his hip and left leg. He humbly turned to his bands' fans for help and managed a successful fundraising project on PledgeMusic.com, offering a number of rewards in return. One of those rewards was a brand new, five-song acoustic covers EP from Alcoa appropriately titled Thank You, pressed on a limited number of CDs and available exclusively to his PledgeMusic donors.
Now Bridge Nine is proud to announce that the Thank You EP will be available from the label on 12 vinyl. Thank You features covers of songs by some of the best in contemporary punk and hardcore (and coincidentally, friends of Archambault): I Am the Avalanche, Blacklisted, Make Do and Mend, and Elder Brother, and also includes a new version of Defeater fan favorite I Don't Mind, originally off 2011's Empty Days & Sleepless Nights. Depending on the variant, the one-sided record will also feature a screen printed or etched B-side.1. Shambles [originally by Make Do and Mend]

Animal Prufrock co-created the infamous queer rock duo, Bitch and Animal. congratulations; thank you + i'm sorry was recorded over a period of 2 years in San Francisco and New Orleans. Animal's collection of 12 songs explores universal themes of love - triumphs and heartbreaks, without taking herself too seriously. On this record, Animal Prufrock continues where Bitch and Animal left off. The Technicolor joyride of raucous humor has changed a bit and we find a more introspective vibe of self examination on this album.

Thanks For Stickin' With TwigGold Colored Vinyl
Thank You For Stickin' With Twig is the latest long-playing
album from the artist known to the world (or at least to
his mother) as Slim Twig. Coming out July 14th, 2015 on
DFA, you may be surprised to know that it represents the
fifth album by the Toronto based songwriter / producer.
Twig has released these previous records among a swath
of EP's, singles and one-offs, displaying in the process a
complete disregard for genre or consistency. The evolution
from Contempt!, his sample-stained 2009 debut, through
to A Hound At The Hem, his symphonic tribute album to
Nabokov's Lolita (reissued by DFA in 2014), is not entirely
linear, although intriguing all the same. Like so many surfsmoothed
stones lining the beach shore, briefly unburied
only to be discarded once deemed un-skippable, so Twig
has gone about seeking the proper rock to cast at just
the right angle. One can see why he extends a gratuity to
those listeners who've stuck around.
Thank You For Stickin' With Twig is to date the most
sonically immersive album in Twig's discography. Where
some records have focused explicitly on sample-based
songwriting, while others have been completely liverecorded,
the new album arrives at a perfectly produced
fusion of fidelities. It hovers, glamorously caught between
a cloud of obscurant, half-speed tape hiss, and the most
stoned Jeff Lynne production you've ever heard. Twig
flirts here with a variety of vibes, most often opting for a
three dimensional approach whereby a warped tape aura
is overlaid with colourful, laser-cut keyboard and guitar
melodies. A fetishization of analogue texture is married to
a digital approach. All the while, we find Twig irreverently
raiding classic rock of its symbolism, sexuality, and social
ambition for ulterior subversions. In this respect, TYFSWT's
closest cousin may be Royal Trux's Accelerator.1. Slippin' Slidin'

The Lowell George & Little Feat 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Begins!
Lowell George's Final Masterpiece + 1 Bonus Track Not On Original Vinyl
Featuring Bonnie Raitt, Billy Payne, Richie Hayward, Fred Tackett, Nicky Hopkins, David Foster & More
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Warner Bros. Tapes
For an artist who first gained success as a songwriter and moved on to a stunning career with his band of
renown Little Feat, the late great Lowell George continually proved to be a major force on the music scene for his short
time on earth. His music transcended all genres of music styles, fusing rock, R&B and folk landscapes with thought
provoking and stellar lyrical content during his successful reign on the album and radio charts.
After reaching very successful heights with Little Feat, Lowell decided it was time to record a solo album with
1979's Thanks I'll Eat It Here.
Thanks I'll Eat It Here finds Lowell George groovin' back to the earlier boogie and New Orleans rock and R&B
feel found on his earlier Little Feat albums. Released a very short time before his untimely death, the album included
his brilliant 20 Million Things, a funk infused Little Feat revisit with Two Trains, plus several inspiring collaborations
with notable friends like Van Dyke Parks and Little Feat's Fred Tackett, as well as significant cover versions like Allen
Toussaint's What Do You Want the Girl to Do, which the late artist truly made his own.
The all-star recording sessions included some of the finest talents and close friends like Bonnie Raitt, John David
Souther, John Phillips, Jim Keltner, Nicky Hopkins (Quicksilver, Rolling Stones) David Foster, Floyd Sneed and Jimmy
Greenspoon (Three Dog Night), David Paich and Jeff Porcaro (Toto), and of course a handful of the original Little Feat
alumni like Richie Hayward, Fred Tackett and Billy Payne.
Out-of-print on viny for several decades now, Friday Music is very honored to offer Lowell George's first and only
solo album Thanks I'll Eat It Here/The Deluxe Edition. For this special occasion, we are including the rare original CD
only release of Heartaches featuring a stellar duet with Valerie Carter.
In addition to the newly impeccably mastered original recording, we are also enclosing the original LP sized
artwork elements in a first time rare gatefold cover featuring Neon Park's stunning front cover, as well as liner notes
from Lowell George to enhance this wonderful and classic self-produced album.
Mastered impeccably from the original Warner Bros. tapes by Joe Reagoso (Warren Zevon/Boz Scaggs/Elvis
Presley), this amazing rock classic truly shines once again.
The legacy of Lowell George continues with his 1979 classic recording Thanks I'll Eat It Here/The Deluxe

Long May You SingDirect Metal Master Cut Vinyl
Paul O'Brien is a songwriter with deep roots and broad horizons. An English-born child of Irish immigrants, he cut his teeth on Irish music. A natural story teller, Paul O'Brien has developed an eclectic folk style that is broadly appealing and not easily categorized.
A working class poet from British Columbia with a knack for straightforward language held aloft by a sweet gift of melody ... - Boulevard Magazine
The second studio album from Stockfisch records is an album of Canadian classics plus a brand new song written by Paul. On this album Paul O'Brien is joined (among others) by master Canadian guitar player and composer Don Ross. On the album there are songs written by Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Leonard Cohen to name but a few.
There's something which connects all the songs on this album: all are by Canadian composers. This is much more than a mere collection of hits - thanks to the poetic, strong and never sentimental interpretations of Paul O'Brien.
Canada is often not taken so seriously - particularly in Europe it is often regarded as a mere extension of the USA, a secret 51st federal state, at the most a paradise for sled dogs and canoe enthusiasts. Paul O'Brien breaks with these clichÉs on his album Long May You Sing and opens up a whole new perspective. He openly admits to have felt like a child in a sweet shop, picking out these songs by the great Canadian composers.
Paul O'Brien about this recording: This collection of songs is the audio equivalent of the "big kid in the candy store". To be able to choose my favourite songs written by Canadian writers was one of the most enjoyable experiences I as a singer could have. On the other hand however, it was the most frustrating because there were so many songs I could have, and perhaps should have chosen. I have a feeling this will be but Volume 1 of a long labour of love.
All of these songs have in some way touched me more than the fact they are amazing pieces of art. It was not simply cherry picking (although when I look now at the track list it looks just like cherry picking). I have taken a few artistic liberties with these tunes, and I truly hope I do not offend anyone, but it seemed to me that I had to try at least to add a little of me to the performances.
Paul O'Brien was brought up in England, received an Irish-Catholic education and formed his own musical identity in pubs and at festivals, with the inevitable mixture of positive & strengthening, but also negative and sobering experiences. In 2004, enough was enough - he shut his guitar away in its case and moved with his family to Canada, settling high up in the North-West - a barren landscape, the beauty of which he often documents with photos on Facebook (including pics of the beloved family Labrador Dooley).
Even at the risk of sounding sentimental: this country and this landscape changed him - changed the musician within - in a very positive and creative sense. He took the banished guitar out of its case and the music flowed. This artistic output reached new heights on his album for Stockfisch Records Walk Back Home. The more recent album, Long May You Sing, could even top that - it is a hymn to his new way of life.
All songs are by Canadian writers - from Bruce Cockburn, Gordon Lightfoot and Paul O'Brien right up to Neil Young, whose long Long May You Run inspired the title of the album. The original impulse for this project is not a secret. The idea came while thinking about doing something for Joni Mitchell's 70th birthday. As a tribute Paul decided to record a version of Big Yellow Taxi.
A big part in this production was played by Canadian master-guitarist and composer Don Ross, who also contributed two solo instrumental pieces. One particular piece just had to be on the album, for all those who wish to celebrate Canada's independent musical integrity: Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. All these songs move Paul emotionally - in his own words more than just in their function as fantastic works of art. This project is for him a mixture of thankfulness, fascination and positive energy from the heart of a very special country. the album has the greatness, the potential and the chance as volume one of a long labour of love' to go to the top of Paul's personal hit-parade.

Do You Believe In Magic180 Gram R.T.I. Vinyl Pressing
From the Original Kama Sutra Mono Masters
Greenwich Village, 1964: While the folk boom is still in progress, other musics began seeping into the corners and clubs of lower Manhattan. Rock, once down for the count, came back with a vengeance, largely thanks to a klatch of young British bands. Roots music, especially blues, grew rapidly in popularity as folk enthusiasts expanded their horizons. In this intoxicating milieu, John Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Joe Butler and Steve Boone united to form the Lovin' Spoonful. Originally a jug band with folk roots, they readily incorporated the sounds they heard all around them. Combining British Invasion jangle with the blues' growl and folk's attention to lyrical detail, they forged a sound completely their own. Accomplished musicians all, they had two secret weapons: the guitar virtuosity of Zal Yanovsky and the rising songwriting talent of John Sebastian.
The first Spoonful single, "Do You Believe in Magic," took AM radio by storm in June of that year, reaching #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Featuring an irrepressible melody, a chiming autoharp and Yanovsky's tasteful fills, it was an audacious debut. Their inaugural Kama Sutra LP, also titled Do You Believe in Magic, followed in November 1965. Containing three other Sebastian originals and one song credited to the band, the balance of the LP contained traditional blues covers and songs by contemporary writers. Reaching #32 on the Billboard Top 200, it established the band as one of country's brightest new talents.
By the release of their second album, Daydream, in March 1966, the band's songwriting chops had fully blossomed, particularly Sebastian's, who wrote or co-wrote all but one of the songs. The album's first single, "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice" reached #10 on the Hot 100 and married a signature Yanovsky riff with a galloping piano part to form an indelible hook. The title track, a mid-tempo reverie with an ace whistling solo, did even better, soaring to #2. Skipping ahead a few decades, the album cut "Butchie's Tune" was used to great effect in season five of Mad Men.
The band soon returned with Hums of the Lovin' Spoonful. Consciously working in different styles, the band essayed country ("Nashville Cats"), folk balladry ("Rain on the Roof") and psych- tinged rock ("Summer in the City"), among other sounds. This time, all the songs were originals and it was the last full album recorded by the original quartet. It stands as a triumphant ending to one of the most exciting chapters in the American rock story of the 1960s, a perfect encapsulation of a time when it seemed anything was possible in music. Sourced from the original Kama Sutra mono masters, these masterpieces are pressed at RTI on 180gm vinyl.1. Do You Believe In Magic

Falling Faster Than You Can Run (Awaiting Repress)Well, it doesn't take long for Falling Faster Than You Can Run to reveal that Nathaniel Rateliff isn't in a very good place. His deep funk is revealed very quickly on the opening track 'Still Trying': "If you roll in it long enough/your shit won't even smell" sings Rateliff, in between crying out, unaccompanied, "I don't know/I don't know/a god damned thing".
And that's the feeling that sticks throughout this, often very fine, new record from Denver, Colorado's Missouri-born Rateliff. On his second full-length album (dropping the & the Wheel from his name) loneliness is writ large: not the kind of loneliness from actually being along, but the kind that comes from being constantly surrounded by people yet unable to shake the feeling of complete isolation. Rateliff has toured with many, many acts over the past few years and most recently has spent time with Dr Dog and fellow Denver act (and friends) The Lumineers. Thankfully, Rateliff rarely sounds like his friends (you might say I'm not a fan) and instead writes and plays music with a lot of heart and soul. It's often his voice that's the star of the show thanks to the subtly-arranged instrumentation: part matured Kurt Wagner burr and part throat-ravaged bluesman ( a bit The Tallest Man on Earth) it's a voice you could listen to all day. But good voice is nothing without good songs, and Rateliff comes with plenty of ammunition on Falling Faster Than You Can Run.
"Still Trying" is an arresting opener; while Rateliff's heart-wrenching roars are the highlight, the backing isn't too shabby either - acoustic guitar and bass drum battle for the spotlight on a ragged country song, and it sounds authentic, like Rateliff has lived what he's singing. And things get better quickly: "I Am" is mostly just Rateliff and his guitar, as broaches his isolation singing: "you'll never know what's buried there / less you dig around". The music swells as he sings the title over and over, following a similar pattern to the album opener. But before things get too familiar, Rateliff picks up the pace with a couple of full band numbers that could almost be considered jaunty, if we were to ignore the lyrics. "Don't Get Too Close" is fine enough and ticks over nicely like a quickstep, but "Laborman" is even better. Like Wilco at their poppiest, it flies off on crunchy and bright electric guitars which belies the lyrical content: "I got a feelin' / a sleepin' depression / that somebody's gonna get hurt", sings Rateliff, followed by "you got the harness/so where you gonna drag me now?" You can see a pattern developing here; Rateliff's stuck somewhere he doesn't want to be, lonely, but how does he get out of it? Take another look at that album cover too - a couple share a bed, an arm reaches out yet it doesn't touch the other person. It's basically a visual encapsulation of what's being sung about.
The epic electric storm of "Forgetting Is Believing" leads a trio of great closing tracks, ending with the Lambchop-murmur of the title track. Rateliff's baritone is exposed and dusty as he sings "leave me alone/you can see me fall/faster than you can run", ending as he started the record - alone and isolated.
Falling Faster Than You Can Run feels, through the dirt, the shit and the whisky, and despite the loneliness, like a hard-earned triumph for Nathaniel Rateliff.

Golden Worry (On Sale)Thank You could only come from one city, at one moment in time. Like Pere Ubu's Cleveland and Joy Division's Manchester, post-industrial Baltimore serves as simultaneous playground, obstacle course, and muse to this show-stealing art-rock trio. The band's urgent collision of rhythm, melody, and noise has placed them at the creative center of today's Baltimore renaissance, sharing stages and tours with such acts as Beach House (Sub Pop), Lungfish (Dischord), Celebration (4AD), Dan Deacon (Carpark), Zomes (Holy Mountain), Jason Urick, and Future Islands (both Thrill Jockey).
Thank You's first full-length follows closely on the heels of 2009's sold-out 12 EP Pathetic Magic. A band that once limited its vocals to hums, grunts, and chants has entered the next phase, delivering a stellar collection of challenging rock-and-roll songs. But Golden Worry eschews easy, anthemic sing-alongs, instead dipping into the vocabularies of Krautrock, post-punk, no-wave, and noise to produce what is at once Thank You's most melodic and most aggressive record.1. 1-2-3 Bad

UNIM-EVI-3604xThank You Scientist
Maps Of Non-Existent PlacesClaudio Sanchez has officially launched his record label Evil Ink Records and his first signing is New Jersey's young experimental progressive rock septet
Thank You Scientist. The newly formed label, distributed by INgrooves, will be releasing a fully remixed and remastered version of the band's 2012 debut
full-length record, Maps of Non-Existent Places, in time for their run with Coheed and Cambria's "Neverender:IKSSE3 Tour."
Claudio Sanchez knows a little bit about progressive music. His career has spanned 12 years and 7 albums, likely encompassing the longest concept
album arc in the history of rock and roll. Now, in effort to further support and promote his beloved complex genre, he has launched a label dedicated to
sharing a wealth of future talent with the first signing being the extremely talented seven-piece band Thank You Scientist.
For the uninitiated, Thank You Scientist was forged from the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey when guitarist Tom Monda met
saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic and trumpeter Andrew Digrius. The three bonded over their love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Beatles and
Harry Nilsson. Those influences would become the seeds for what Thank You Scientist would evolve into today.
With the addition of vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez and violinist Ben Karas, Thank You Scientist's lineup of
virtuoso musicians was complete. The band would go on to self-release an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011 followed by their debut full-length, Maps
of Non-Existent Places, in 2012, which caught the ear of Sanchez, a fellow purveyor of progressive stylings, and led to his signing of the band.
To pinpoint Thank You Scientist's sound would be inconceivable. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship,
fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience. The
seven-piece band, who collectively play some 20 instruments, boasts a hyper-composed sound which is indebted to their experience and formal training
in both classical and jazz idioms.

There's A Riot Goin' OnRanked 99/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Since it took almost two years to make, the fifth album by now bonafide superstars Sly & the Family Stone had everyone salivating in anticipation. Needless to say, Sly did not disappoint! 1971's There's A Riot Goin' On finds the Bay Area-based genius getting funkier than before, even as his artistic vision becomes darker. Some may have been disappointed that Sly didn't simply re-create the chart successes of earlier singles, but who can argue with the flat-out brilliance of turning recent big hit Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) on its head to create the mind-boggling Thank You For Talkin' To Me Africa? Two of this hypnotic album's best tunesï¿½Family Affair and Runnin' Awayï¿½were gigantic chart hits, proving beyond any doubt that Sly Stone could totally deliver the goods!1. Luv N' Haight

The Glowing ManThe Last Album Release Of Swans' Current Incarnation
"In 2009 when I made the decision to restart Swans, I had no idea where it would lead. I knew that if I took the road of mining the past or revisiting the catalog, that it would be fruitless and stultifying. Instead I chose the five people with whom to work that I believed would most ably provide a sense of surprise, and even uncertainty, while simultaneously embodying the strength and confidence to ride the river of intention that flows from the heart of the sound wherever it would lead us - and what's the intention? LOVE!
And so finally this LOVE has now led us, with the release of the new and final recording from this configuration of Swans, The Glowing Man, through four albums (three of which contain more complexity, nuance and scope than I would have ever dreamed possible), countless and seemingly endless tours and rehearsals, and a generally exhausting regimen that has left us stunned but still invigorated and thrilled to see this thing through to its conclusion. I hereby thank my brothers and collaborators for their commitment to whatever truth lies at the center of the sound. - Michael Gira 20161. Cloud of Forgetting

Consolers of the LonelyWith this release, The Raconteurs are forgoing the usual months of lead time for press and radio set up, as well as forgoing the all important first week sales. We wanted to explore the idea of releasing an album everywhere at once and THEN marketing and promoting it thereafter. The Raconteurs would rather this release not be defined by it's first weeks sales, pre-release promotion, or by someone defining it FOR YOU before you get to hear it...
Another purpose was to also allow people to have their own choice as to exactly which format they would like to hear the album in IMMEDIATELY, rather than having to wait for their favorite format to become available. The band are also not releasing any version of this record that contains bonus tracks. Musically this album will be the same as the band created it no matter what format it is purchased in (The sound quality of each format however, is a different story. The Raconteurs recommend hearing it on vinyl, but the choice is of course up to the listener)...
We hope not to confuse anyone with too many options, or deny them the formats that they like best. The Raconteurs feel very strongly that music has worth and should be treated as such. Thank you to all those who respect music in this fashion, and thank you to our label partners for working with us to get this album to fans in as many formats as possible all at once... - The Raconteurs1.

Pay Close Attention: XL RecordingsXL Recordings is a collaborative endeavour, and many people have contributed to its evolution.
In the song "Out Of Space", Liam Howlett of The Prodigy provided a blueprint when he sampled Kool Keith of Ultramagnetic MC's rapping these
words: "Pay Close Attention".
And whilst XL has never had any outside ownership, Gil Scott-Heron advised me not to even consider XL "independent"; because everything is
This compilation is an attempt to illustrate some of these connections.
Part 1 is the roots of XL; underground music, made for DJ's. These roots
are still growing.
Part 2 features some of the singular talents who have taken the label further
than we ever envisioned. There is no unifying genre, and I'll happily confess to aesthetic opportunism; hopefully the thread of originality is evident
We've never compromised. The rave music XL first became known for was
known as "hardcore"; that spirit continues.
To show our appreciation for your support: thank you DJ's.
And thank you also to the retailers, writers and of course, ravers.
