    Eric Copeland is a member of Black Dice from New York. His solo work under his own name exhibits an exciting and intensely original take on song structure, delivery and approach.

On his previous three 7 releases Doo Doo Run b/w Fundinkdeath, Puerto Rican b/w The Eyeball and Whorehouse Blues b/w Guk & UFO's Over Vampire City, Eric has taken and warped pop song ideas and skewed them incredibly,crafting out some very killer tunes.

    No Need For Alarm

    After breaking out of the Bay Area underground scene in the early 90s Del The Funky Homosapien made a radical turn with his sophomore release, 93's No
    Need For Alarm." Casting aside the familiar G-funk vibe of his debut, perhaps as "No Need" was produced without the involvement of his cousin Ice Cube, he moved into a jazzier - some would say more East Coast direction on this project. The verbal content on "No Need" shifted as well, moving away from comic interludes and towards a focus on battle raps. "No Need For Alarm" was produced with his Oakland based Hieroglyphics Crew with Domino, A-Plus and Casual all contributing beats making the record one of the three "Hiero Golden Age" releases (along with Souls of Mischief's "'93 til Infinity" and Casual's "Fear Itself").

    Though some critics are harsh on "No Need For Alarm" and claim it's not as strong an effort as Del's debut, many disagree and see this release as being
    the first where Del really stood out. Regardless of which side of the fence one falls on that topic, it's without doubt that No Need For Alarm has stood the test of time and remains a challenging and uncompromising follow up from one of the most talented and eccentrically gifted artists to to ever emerge from the world of west coast hip hop.

    Incense And Peppermints

    The Strawberry Alarm Clock made musical history with its first single, the infectious, psychedelic Incense and Peppermints, which topped the national singles charts in December of 1967 and remains one of the Aquarian Age's most enduring anthems. As the California combo's debut LP demonstrates, there was a lot more to the Strawberry Alarm Clock than their iconic trademark hit.

    Incense and Peppermints combines catchy melodic flights with an edgy progressive sensibility that minifests itself in the trippy soundscapes, sophisticated harmonies and evocative lyrics of such memorable tracks as The World's on Fire, Birds in My Tree, Rainy Day Mushroom Pillow and Paxton's Back Street Carvinal.

    Unavailable in its original LP format for decades, Incense and Peppermints has been meticulously restored to its original glory for this LP reissue, using Sundazed's exacting technical and aesthetic standards. The album is pressed on high-quality, high-definition vinyl, and features a complete reproduction of the album's unique original cover art.

    Featuring The Classic Hip Hop Tracks True Fuschnick, Ring The Alarm And La Schmoove

    Even before they made it to the record bins, three-man New York crew Fu-Schnickens created quite a buzz in the hip-hop community with the oddity of their group name. Once they dropped their debut album, F.U. Don't Take It Personal, their music turned out to be every bit as curious and intriguing.

    F.U. Don't Take It Personal is the debut studio album by American hip hop group Fu-Schnickens, released February 25, 1992. Recording sessions for the album took place at Battery Studios in New York, New York.

    The album peaked at number sixty-four on the Billboard 200 chart. By late 1992, it was certified gold by the RIAA, for shipping 500,000 copies in the United States. The album spawned three popular singles, including Ring The Alarm, True Fuschnick and La Schmoove.

    In The Village Voice, Robert Christgau praised Fu-Schnickens' ideas and illusory rhymes, calling the group 'rappers whose visions of fun, agape, and aural conquest remain open-ended, playful, and, face it, silly'.

    Saves The Day

    Saves the Day is dead. Long live Saves the Day.

    Of course, with the departure of long-time lead guitarist Dave Soloway prior to the release of Daybreak in 2009, that may have been the moment that marked the final days of an early 2000s emo powerhouse. But even that album felt more like a body of work you could have expected from Chris Conley and company in the past.

    The band's newest self-titled release marks a well-documented departure from the days of Stay What You Are, In Reverie, and, hell, even Sound the Alarm. Whereas previous entries in the band's catalogue have dealt with the anxious, even nerve-wracking realities of the young and socially awkward, Saves the Day instead starts off on a power-pop riff and hardly strays from it (not that anyone's complaining.)

    The first two tracks, "Remember" and "In the In Between," set the tone for the rest of the LP. The fast-paced, poppy tunes are care-free ventures, something missing from Conley's writing since In Reverie.

    Oddly enough, Saves the Day sounds more like the bands that have fondly proclaimed that Can't Slow Down, Through Being Cool and Stay What You Are inspired their own sounds. That sentiment becomes even more pronounced as the album plays on.

    "Beyond All of Time" slows things down a bit before "Ain't No Kind of Love" kicks the tempo back up a bit. Both tracks flow into each other nicely. And although neither stands out on its own, the songs reinforce the mood of the album.

    "Lucky Number" plays much the same, fitting into the album nicely as a piece of the puzzle, but without offering much on its own merit.

    The song "Xenophobic Left Hook" by title alone demonstrates that Conley hasn't yet lost his lyrical style. But the sound that accompanies his vocals is drastically different than ever before and it can be directly attributed to the band's ever-changing lineup.

    "The Tide of Our Times" is one of the album's truly outstanding tracks. It's catchy. It's fast. It's less than two-and-a-half minutes long and it's emblematic of everything Saves the Day does right in this album.

    "Supernova" is, lyrically, the closest we might come to a traditional Conley track. The imagery and metaphors are wonderfully woven throughout the ballad.

    "Verona" picks the pace back up, leading nicely into another of the album's best tracks: "Ring Pop." The pace is fast and the lyrics recall carefree days when a ring pop may have sufficed as a symbol of courtship. It's the essence of what makes some of Conley's best music, harkening to a past with the sentimentality ramped up to 11.

    "Stand in the Stands" is, by far, the most up-beat and optimistic album closer Saves the Day has ever composed. Standing in stark contrast to even the band's sunnier albums and closers like "Firefly" and "Tomorrow Too Late," the track starts with a bouncy melody and doesn't let up for the nearly four minutes it plays out.

    Although Daybreak was the first album where Conley was the last of the band's founding members left, it carried hints of Sound the Alarm and Under the Boards, primarily because of those three albums' conceptual ties (They were designed as a trilogy that started with 2006's Sound the Alarm).

    If Conley's way with words is what drew you to the band, this will be right up your alley. Saves the Day may not be the band you remember, but Conley's presence maintains the only lyrical and moody consistency that we really need.

    Evil Dead Soundtrack (Awaiting Repress)

    Deluxe 2xLP housed in gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves featuring movie photos

    Transparent Red And Transparent Green Vinyl

    UNSEEN FORCES is proud to present the complete motion picture soundtrack from Fede Alvarez's incendiary 2013 reimagining of cult horror masterpiece the EVIL DEAD. Spanish composer Roque Baños dazzles with a crisp modern orchestral score that bows reverently toward such genre classics as Jerry Goldsmith's The Omen Suite, Anton Webern and Krzysztof Penderecki's creepy string movements from The Exorcist and Joseph LoDuca's beautifully understated atmospherics for Sam Raimi's original creation that launched the grisly Kandarian franchise and revolutionized the contemporary horror film with its startling velocity.

    Anxious purists need not fret. Baños studied music at the Upper Music Conservatory of Murcia and Madrid's Real Conservatorio Superior before graduating from Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music, but with EVIL DEAD he steps beyond the jazz influences evidenced in his previous scores. Here the maestro eloquently assumes the role of firestarter, conducting like a pyromaniac invoking the destructive majesty of flame - both demonic and cleansing - with smoldering strings and brass building toward total aural incineration. To that end, he cleverly employs a prominent siren motif that at turns suggests a dreadful fire alarm in slow motion, the nostalgia of an amusement park haunted house attraction and a prodigious yawning door somewhere in the deepest chasm of hell. A thoroughly cinematic experience suffused with sweeping overtures and jarring choral crescendos, Baños has created a dark and vital epic for the ages. DLP pressed to 140 gram gore splattered vinyl - with a locked groove for extended terror! - and entombed in a lavish gatefold cover, this gorgeous collection carves through the glut of overblown soundtrack reissues of late like a trusty chainsaw. It is, in a word... Groovy!

    Amused To Death

    Mastered by Pink Floyd Producer/Engineer James Guthrie & Doug Sax from the Original Analog Master Tapes

    Pressed by Quality Record Pressings

    "It is the poet's responsibility to foresee the future, and it is his neighbor's duty to prevent the worst of it from taking place. With Amused To Death, surely one of the most provocative and musically dazzling records of the decade, Roger Waters has fulfilled his part of the bargain." - Timothy White, "Music to My Ears," Billboard Magazine, July 1992

    An unblinking look at an entertainment-obsessed society, Amused to Death addresses issues that have only grown in complexity and urgency over the past two decades. With Amused to Death, Roger Waters sounded the alarm about a society increasingly - and unthinkingly - in thrall to its television screens. Twenty-three years later, Amused to Death speaks to our present moment in ways that could scarcely have been anticipated two decades ago. In 2015, television is just one option in an endless array of distractions available to us anytime, anywhere, courtesy of our laptops, tablets and smartphones. With eyes glued to our screens, the dilemmas and injustices of the real world can easily recede from view.

    The 2015 2 LP 200-gram vinyl edition of Amused to Death features remastered audio completed by longtime Roger Waters / Pink Floyd collaborator and co-producer, James Guthrie, and has been pressed at Quality Record Pressings. The cover and gatefold art has been updated for 2015 by Sean Evans, the creative director of Waters' 2010-2013 The Wall Live tour and movie.

    Don't spook the horse? Too late. Neil Young and one of the greatest garage-rock bands in history reunite on their first studio LP in nearly nine years on Americana, a charged set of familiar folk tunes and murder ballads brilliantly re-imagined by the tireless guitarist/provocateur and his able mates.

    Young has never been predictable, and during a time when his adopted country is largely at a crossroads and dealing with issues related to economic disparity, political fallout, and social upheaval, the Canadian native upends everything on this salient statement, as contemporary as it is timeless. Long preoccupied with topics relating to freedom, justice, and common people, Young turns in what's one of his most salient and relevant reflections on these matters and more by turning to history and tradition.

    Featuring standards such as Oh Susannah, Clementine, God Save the Queen, and Wayfarin' Stranger, the record takes aim at modern issues through the lens of tunes that were bonding agents and communal anthems in the past. Young and Crazy Horse assume a position that functions as a voice of America, speaking to a heritage while sounding alarm bells and wake-up calls to heed in our present. The collective performs Woody Guthrie's signature This Land Is Your Land with the original verses, restoring the song's biting verve and fearless intent.

    Young's seriousness is reflected in the liner notes he penned to accompany each track. As always, the analog aficionado ensured optimal recording methods deliver stunningly lifelike dynamic sound on LP. Young, John Hanlon, and Mark Humphreys produced; John Hausmann, Jeff Pinn, and Hanlon engineered.

    As a thematic bookend to Bruce Springsteen's recent Wrecking Ball, and yet another pertinent Young & Crazy Horse effort, Americana is a seminal collection that no music fan should be without.

    Pop Crimes

    Rowland S. Howard started playing in teenage bands in late
    70s Melbourne. Whilst still a callow youth he wrote "Shivers," an
    undisputed classic, (quietly ignoring the fact that Rowland perhaps
    doesn't see it that way and approaches the song as if it was written
    by someone else). The song was recorded by his band The Boys Next

    Europe to wage a guerrilla campaign against the trivialities of the
    80s, until they turned their fire upon themselves and disintegrated

    Whilst his former associates have moved on to weekend colour
    supplement acceptability, Rowland has commonly been perceived
    as the banished wastrel prince... exiled to a squalid garret on the
    colder edges of the kingdom, accompanied only by his dreams and
    inclinations. His demeanour (pale, gaunt, stick thin, sickly, dark
    humoured, fatalistic) has perhaps inadvertently added far too much
    credence to this interpretation of events. The shadow of this myth
    has seemingly obscured the sheer volume of his creativity and the
    singularity of his musical vision.

    Always respected by his peers, a scan through Rowland's
    catalogue of work sees him allied with the likes of Lydia Lunch,
    Thurston Moore, Wim Wenders, Barry Adamson, The Gun Club, Nikki
    Sudden, the Beasts Of Bourbon, the Hungry Ghosts and HTRK.
    Rowland's own ensemble These Immortal Souls gun their engines
    in the ill-lit background and the legacy of his work with The Birthday

    But it's a history Rowland would gleefully put a match to. With or
    without it Rowland S. Howard would make tense, beautiful music,
    would deliver us his personal vision of the world, would create Pop

    Long-time faithful friends Mick Harvey (who played with Rowland
    for over 30 years), JP Shilo (Hungry Ghosts) and producer Lindsay
    Gravina make for a formidable backline. Out front the guitar playing
    couldn't be any one else but Rowland S Howard and his weary,
    almost journalistic vocal delivery dispassionately sits amidst the
    sweaty panic of the music, adding to the ill ease.

    The band lurch in to Pop Crimes as if dragging a rain soaked body
    across a muddy field. The ghosts of Lee Hazlewood, Snatch, Sergio
    Leone, The Shangri-Las and nameless guys from a never known chain
    gang watch on. Within the first few breaths Rowland references
    Stalin, Calvary and genocide, whilst razoring guitar lines the current
    crop of post-punk revisionists could only fantasize about.

    "Shut Me Down" is Rowland at his most romantic, though
    inevitably it's shot through with loss and longing. If only Dusty
    Springfield were alive to revel in its drama. Talk Talk's 'Life's What
    You Make It' is re-imagined as if it had risen from the grind of a
    Detroit auto plant's assembly line. '(I Know) A Girl Called Johnny'
    sees Jonnine D from HTRK sidle up to the microphone for a duet
    that will melt even the coldest of hearts. It's a glorious missing link
    between the New York girl group sound and the street smarts of
    Suicide. Townes Van Zandt's "Nothin" is given a chilling tenement
    building transformation. "Wayward Man" has the band wailing like
    alarm sirens before Rowland emerges at his most contemplative
    with the gorgeous, fragile build of "Ave Maria." Final track "The
    Golden Age Of Bloodshed" takes the album out on a swaggering,
    swashbuckling epic, with salvation slipping through the narrator's

    Ancient Melodies Of The Future

    Ancient Melodies of the Future is the fifth full-length album released by indie rock band Built to Spill. The album was recorded at Bear Creek in Woodinville, Washington. With Ancient Melodies of the Future, Built to Spill expanded on the big sound that they crafted with KEEP IT LIKE A SECRET.

    In Your Mind is a beautiful track with its Far Eastern guitar lines and thumping beat. Alarmed spirals into a satisfying guitar and keyboard noise jam, while Happiness is like a speeding car - it has the intensity, rush, and twanging swagger of an automobile race. The album closes with The Weather, a shimmering love song that begins with a resonant acoustic guitar. The narrator describes being outside in the cool night, and the stars gravitate towards you.

    These few lyrics are a fitting description of Built to Spill, a band that goes on and on, always changing, always moving forward, but somehow always staying the same - familiar and comforting - as they carry the ancient melodies of personal histories, theirs and yours, into the future.

    Ultraista Remixes


    Ultraísta Remixes compiles a year's worth of remixes from friends and collaborators within the ever-expanding Ultraísta orbit. Though some of these tracks have become social media sensations in their own right - collectively clocking more than two million plays on the band's Soundcloud and YouTube channels - Ultraísta Remixes has been perfectly sequenced to succeed as a stand-alone album (an alarmingly strong one, no less). Rarely do remix
    albums have this level of quality control and seemingly infinite replay value.

    Whereas Ultraísta's debut album commits to its palette with uncanny precision and devotion, Remixes explodes its individual parts and reveals the group to be equally compelling as techno powerhouse (Four Tet, FaltyDL, DC Sux), dark electro-pop (Zero 7, Zammuto, ERAAS, Canon Blue), experimental dance (Prefuse 73, Matthew Herbert), and even driving industrial rock (David Lynch in an inspired
    NIN-meets-YYYs turn). The combination of all of these seemingly disparate parts makes for a surprisingly cohesive whole, and a remarkable companion to the original album.

    Keel Her

    Known for her prolific songwriting and soundcloud posting Rose Keeler-Schffelers debut album features eighteen powerfully but economically packed tracks, cherry picked from her vast repertoire. Keel Hers songs are intimate vignettes drawn from Roses own experiences delivered in a chatty, honest and delightfully conversational manner. Guitars and synths vie for melodic prominence over vast swathes of fuzz and feedback, where Roses indecipherable vocals swim amongst buzzing melodies, swampy reverb and broken beats. Although much of her sound and aesthetic harks back to 90s slacker culture, the variety of styles she has absorbed makes it harder to specifically pinpoint her sound. Veering sonically from Beat Happening to Ariel Pink, Wavves to Bikini Kill, Real Estate to Guided By Voices and all the way back again, it wasnt long before her bedroom pop reached the ears of home recording supremo R. Stevie Moore. The R Stevie Moore collaboration started when Rose wrote a song for him called Robert. He was won over and they recorded the double A-side single Boner Hit/With Me Tonight. Rose invited Moore to remix the album track I'd Be Your Slave, which also sees him playing bass. Having grown up in Winchester, Rose Keeler-Schffeler began writing and recording in her bedroom at an early age and for over a year posted tracks online at an alarming rate. Now residing in Brighton, she remains blissfully unconcerned with glossy production values, clichd lyrics and formulaic hooks and instead taps in to seemingly bottomless well of creativity on her own terms.

    "Such a breath of fresh air." - Pitchfork

    Following the dissolution of his groundbreaking collage-pop duo, the Books, Zammuto rebounded with an eponymous debut album submerged in transitional anxiety and audio effects designed to intentionally obscure the very humanistic qualities that marked Nick Zammuto's best work in the
    Books. It was in many ways the most essential album of his career, in that it established his post-Books path and introduced him to a new group of musicians (most notably renowned percussionist Sean Dixon) who have immeasurably contributed to the creative inspiration and execution of his most compelling work to date, the aptly titled Anchor.

    An enormous weight has been lifted from Nick Zammuto, and you can hear as much in the opening minutes of Anchor. The arrangements have more space, the songs are more dynamic, and the vocals are delivered with a confident intimacy that is almost alarmingly beautiful (the collaborations with the enchanting Daniela Gesundheit of Canadian indie-pop duo Snowblink are particularly transcendent).

    Written, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely at home in Zammuto's converted tractor garage recording studio (pictured on the front cover) using an expanding array of vintage analog outboard equipment, Anchor embodies the very DIY lifestyle and self-sufficient approach that has
    come to define all that is Zammuto. His is a rarified art made on its own terms - far away from the insular feedback loop of trend cycles and commodified expectations. His home is his anchor, and Anchor is his home.

    Akron/Family (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    Akron/Family came to NYC in 2002 to make music, hoping to find a thread of real magic still winding through The Big Apple's music scene by retreating into a tiny Brooklyn apartment, where they made their own world instead, in complete and stubborn isolation. They grew alarmingly long beards, developed a playful but hermetic, quasi-religious, sonic worldview / creed known as Ak or sometimes Ak-Ak and recorded on crude home equipment at least three albums' worth of material, which they compulsively chop, splice, and orchestrate into fractal jewels of song and schismatically opposed atmospheres.

    The music veers from gentle American country folk to unabashed electronic noise, to gathering and erupting crescendos, to extended skronk improvisations that suddenly cut to an LSD version of a backwoods barbershop quartet or a Louvin Brothers spiritual - sometimes all within the course of one ridiculously long song. Their enthusiasm for pure sound too is evident in instances such as a squeaking chair played by Miles Seaton, all four Akrons simultaneously violently beating their chests, the resulting percussive sound being the air released from their mouths with each beat. As the band recorded with Michael Gira and Jason La Farge, a song would sometimes be described as too red or not aluminum enough or some other arcane reference, but inevitably, corrections made with the aid of a screwdriver or maybe the sanded metal rails of a staircase resulted in an unpredictable but correct result.

    When the pure and sonorous voice of Ryan Vanderhoof, who sings lead on most of the songs, slides up to the higher registers, it inevitably evokes comparisons to angels and elicits uncomfortable feelings in girl and boy alike; when they all sing together its like the goddamn Beatles or Beach Boys or maybe an eerie and twisted version of The Band.
