    Against the bleeding-heart backdrop of Times Square at the Novotel Hotel, The Drums announced they will be releasing their third full-length,

    Noisey surprised everyone by premiering the first single, "Magic Mountain" on July 15. In fact it was the first song The Drums have released in nearly 3
    years, marking a return to the two founding core members of Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham. Spin says "the new single is still guided by that infectious
    head-bobbery, but the Brooklyn indie-popper's blithe bounce takes on a fervent frenzy." Baeble noted the prevailing "sheen of gloom and apprehension," a
    departure that Paste says "stirs in sounds in all the right ways."

    'Encyclopedia' is The Drums' third full-length album. Emerging from Brooklyn via Florida in 2009, they smashed on the scene with their 'Summertime!' EP
    that led to a spot on the BBC Sound of 2010 shortlist, The ShockWaves NME Tour, and the publication's Phillip Hall Radar Award.
    The Drums' music often explores the themes of loss, nostalgia, redemption, vulnerability, and love - with critic's raves embracing both the lyrics and their
    sonic signature. This time around, they've embraced a darker sound while making it as grand and majestic as they please.

    'Encyclopedia' is full of magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout, says Jonny. The upcoming LP marks the first
    time since the 'Summertime!' EP that Jacob and Jonny were left to their own devices, without having to ask a soul for approval. The result is an exciting
    display of personal emotion and unashamed, majestic songwriting style. In September, The Drums hit the road for the first time since the 2012.

    Abysmal Thoughts

    With The Drums' new Abysmal Thoughts, band founder Jonny Pierce is making the exact album he has always held in his heart. Of course, this is The Drums, so that heart is broken-but there's beauty and even bliss in this kind of heartbreak, as well as that special kind of glorious delirium that comes from taking everything life can throw at you and still walking away triumphant.

    Abysmal Thoughts finds Pierce back in full control of The Drums, not just writing all the songs himself but playing every instrument and bringing his exact personal vision to life. Not coincidentally, it is some of the most revelatory work he's ever done.

    If Abysmal Thoughts doesn't sound at all abysmal-really, Pierce has rarely been this irresistibly pop-that's because this is a story about how to figure out what happiness means once the worst has already happened: "If there's one thing I can rely on it's the healing power of being an artist," he says. "I'm falling back in love with music."

    On The Corner

    Scorned by critics at the time of its release, Miles Davis' 1972 album 'On The Corner' is now seen as a forerunner of Post Punk, Hip Hop, Drum and Bass and Electronic music, thanks to its revolutionary recording techniques.

    Miles wanted to reconnect with a younger audience, who had forsaken him for Rock and funk, and the experimental 'On The Corner' was his answer. Leaning more heavily on a drum and bass groundwork, the overdubs consisted of free improvisations held in the studio.

    Drums And Guns

    The eighth full-length from Minnesota's Low, and their second for Sub Pop. While these songs feature new elements (looped vocals, drum machines, etc.), and are thoroughly, radiantly contemporary, they remain undeniably Low's. "Drums And Guns" possesses the unique, subtle beauty and power we've come to expect from this band, but it's also profoundly exciting in ways that are easy to forget music can be.

    Drum Suite

    Strictly Limited To 2,500

    All-Analog Mastering By Kevin Gray

    Pressed At RTI

    "Recorded in 1956, Art Blakey's Drum Suite is a wonderful hybrid of African, Latin, and hard bop rhythms that prefigures the concept of Afro-beat by at least a decade, and the sheer energy, not to mention its very special and fresh-sounding intimacy, make it especially astounding. Even more amazing is that the three parts of the suite -- Blakey's The Sacrifice, Ray Bryant's Cubano Chant, and Oscar Pettiford's Oscalypso -- were recorded straight through live, and were only intended to be a pre-take run-through, but as is obvious here, Blakey and company nailed the whole thing right out of the box. The original LP was issued by Columbia with the drum suite on one side, and three tracks recorded by a 1956 version of the Jazz Messengers (Bill Hardman, Jackie McLean, Sam Dockery, and Spanky DeBrest) for Blakey's first Columbia album, Hard Bop, on the other side. Groundbreaking for its time, and still sounding vital, powerful, and visionary, the Drum Suite album is somewhat of a lost masterpiece that deserves a fresh audience.

    2013's self-titled Bass Drum of Death album is everything about 2011's debut GB City amplified, in every sense of the word. With nothing but his inspiration and his instruments, Barrett spent the fall of 2012 in his studio, smashing out punk rock. This time it was just him, lots of coffee, a Realistic reverb unit to give everything just a little of that stoned-in-outer-space and for the first time in Bass Drum of Death history, a bass that he used on every new track.

    Message From A Drum

    See The Light is the debut album by The Jeff Healey Band, released in 1988. See The Light may be similar to Stevie Ray Vaughan's high-octane Blues-Rock, but in blues and blues-rock, it's often the little things that count, such as guitar styles, and there's no denying that Healey has a distinctive style.

    Healey plays his Stratocaster flat on his lap, allowing him to perform unusual long stretches that give his music real heart and unpredictability. Throughout the album, his guitar work keeps things interesting, even on slow ballads like Angel Eyes (one of two John Hiatt songs, by the way, along with the ripping Confidence Man).

    That's what keeps See the Light interesting, and it's what makes it an intriguing, promising debut. It made the top 100 Albums in Canada in 1989, and was nominated for an Album of the Year Juno Award a year later.

    Teen rocker Jack Skuller is equally passionate about the melodies of the Beatles and the energy of the Ramones. A song Jack wrote, the irresistibly catchy Love Is A Drum propelled him to first place at the 101.5 FM talent show. The timeless rockabilly anthem was produced by Daniel Rey (Ramones, Ronnie Spector) and features Nada Surf's Ira Elliot on drums. Insistent and forceful, rock and roll begins again with rock's new young heart.

    Drumming (Pure Pleasure) (Pre-Order)

    Simply put, Drumming is, along with some of Philip Glass' Einstein On The Beach, one of the most fascinating pieces of first-generation minimalism. The version recorded for Elektra/Nonesuch in 1987 ranks among Reich's masterpieces. The 60-minute continuous work features one basic rhythm pattern. Throughout four segued movements it is multiplied, played in canon on various percussion instruments. Part I is for four pairs of tuned bongo drums; Part II for three marimbas (played by nine players) and two singers mimicking the sound of marimbas; Part III for three glockenspiels, piccolo, and whistling (played by Reich himself); Part IV for all previous instruments, including voices. Transitions between movements are gradual, the whole piece being built on accumulation and reduction. When it is time to go to the next movement, players are slowly removed, quarter-notes replaced by rests, in order to make room for the new instruments. The piece almost comes to a complete halt at the end of Part III, keeping only the most basic pulse before the whole process starts over, building up to the finale. There is a sense of happiness and lightness irradiating from Drumming. It is a perfect example of the paradox of the simple and the complex, the easy and the challenging underlying minimalist music. Both cerebral and vitally tribal or ritualistic, this album is a must-have.

    About Pure Pleasure

    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.

    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.

    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.

    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.

    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.

    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    - NY Times

    When Bass Drum of Death started touring the rock club circuit
    outside Oxford, Mississippi, several years ago, there was a legitimate
    concern that the band's appeal might be limited to fans of the
    garage scene. With a seemingly never-ending series of tour dates,
    BDoD nonetheless transformed rooms full of normally
    too-cool-to-rock indie crowds into a mob of sweaty, stage-diving
    maniacs. Meanwhile, Madison Avenue, eager to cash in on hip
    cachet, took notice. Since the release of 2011's GB City, "Get Found"
    has been featured in FOX promos for the NASCAR season. Rockstar
    Games' megaseller Grand Theft Auto V helped to promote last
    year's self-titled album. Gamers terrorized the freeways of Los
    Santos, living out their cops-and-robbers fantasies, as "Crawling
    After You" blasted through their car stereo speakers. Bass Drum of
    Death are teetering on the brink of reaching a mainstream audience,
    and Rip This is their attempt to record an unapologetic rock album
    for people outside their normal fan base.

    In the past, BDoD brainchild John Barrett wrote and recorded all the
    material and toured with a revolving lineup of hired guns on drums
    and guitar. This time around, drummer Len Clark joins Barrett as a
    full-time member and collaborator. The duo began discussing plans
    for a new record when touring with Unknown Mortal Orchestra in
    2013. Barrett and Clark then convinced UMO bassist Jacob Portrait
    to take on the role of producer when the band booked a session in
    March at Prairie Sun Studios in Sonoma County, California. With a
    few rough demos, Barrett, Clark, and Portrait hunkered down for two
    weeks and cranked out the band's first proper studio album. Rip This
    retains BDoD's trademark sorry-for-partyin' swagger while
    scrapping the crackling hiss and lo-fi fuzz. The result is an record
    that still relies on an obliterating attack of heavy guitars, danceable
    hooks, and kinetic drumming, but will appeal as much to KISS fans
    as the music freaks and geeks who worship Nuggets. Both a
    challenge to music critics and a rock call-to-arms, the title says it all.
    You're not going to hear many records this year that rip like this, so
    shotgun a beer, tune in, and turn up.

    Through Silver In Blood (Awaiting Repress)

    Through Silver in Blood is the fifth album from the California based post-metal band Neurosis. The album holds elements of industrial metal reminiscent of Godflesh, sludge metal, doom metal, avant-garde metal, and yet still retains faint elements of hardcore punk from the band's previous work. The vocals are usually shouted, growled or screamed, and the drums are often played in a similar way to the electronic drums exhibited in industrial metal and industrial rock, although the drums play a doom metal or sludge metal groove in many passages.
