    The Final Cut

    The Final Cut is Pink Floyd's twelfth studio album, originally released on 21 March 1983 internationally and on 2 April 1983 in the United States by Columbia Records. It is Pink Floyd's last studio album to include founding member, bass guitarist and songwriter Roger Waters, and their only album on which he alone is credited for writing and composition. It is also the only Pink Floyd album that does not feature keyboardist Richard Wright.

    The Final Comedown (Pure Pleasure)

    Guitarist Grant Green is known for laid back non-chordal single note playing. He was underrated during his life, but is now seen as one of the greatest guitarists of his era. During the early 60's, both his fluid, tasteful playing in organ/guitar/drum combos and his other dates for Blue Note established Green as a star. He was off the scene for a while in the mid-60's, but came back strong in the late '60's and '70's when this album was recorded.



    The Final Comedown was Blue Note's first film soundtrack and is an excellent debut into the Blaxploitation soundtrack genre of the period. As Grant Green's entry into this blaxploitation genre it does differ to a certain degree from his other works. There are pensive mood pieces along with more funky percussive tunes. Like any film score, the moods shift from tense to tranquil, featuring staccato horn punches, dramatic tympani, bongo driven beats and wah wah guitar. Grant Green brings a deeper jazz feel to the tracks with in particular the title track being more akin to his other Blue Note material of the period.



    Musicians:



    • Grant Green (guitar)

    • Wade Marcus (composer, conductor)

    • Richard Tee (piano, organ)

    • Irving Markowitz, Marvin Stamm (trumpet, fluegel horn)

    • Phil Bodner (flute, piccolo, alto saxophone, oboe)

    • Harold Vick (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone)

    • Gordon Edwards (electric bass)

    • Grady Tate (drums)

    • Ralph MacDonald (conga, bongo)






    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.

    Quadrophenia: Super Deluxe Director's Cut

    After Who's Next, Pete Townshend created Quadrophenia, the story of Jimmy, a young mod struggling to come of age in mid-1960s England. Quadrophenia perfectly captured the era in which it was set and has remained one of the most enduring rock albums of all time.


    For Quadrophenia: Super Deluxe Director's Cut, Pete Townshend spent 6 months revisiting what he describes as the Who album I'm most proud of. The end result is a stunning limited edition 5 disc box set featuring the original studio album, now remastered, 2 discs of previously unreleased demos, a disc of 5.1 surround-sound mixes and a 7 vinyl single.


    The set also contains rare and unseen memorabilia including handwritten lyrics, unseen photos, a poster, a unique studio diary as well as an extensive essay and track by track guide to the demo recordings all written by Pete.


    The time has come for me and my team to honour Quadrophenia with a carefully presented package that features examples of the impact surround sound (quadrophonic) would have on the music, to remaster the vinyl mixes, and to collect and restore my demos. I am also going to try to shed some light on the way Quadrophenia came about, and how it was inspired by events in my life in 1970 and 1971 when I scribbled or typed the very first notes and lyrics for some of the songs that made it onto the final record. - Pete Townshend

    Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?

    WWCOHWWG? was the third and final full-length album by the Canadian indie rock act The Unicorns, and was originally released in 2003. The album gained wide and immediate praise, with broad critical and commercial acclaim from outlets as diverse at NME, Pitchfork and The Village Voice. This cult affection is probably best summarized in the album's involvement as the premise for the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother? i.e., the basis for the lead character falling in love with said "mother" being their mutual love of the obscure Who Will Cut Our Hair ? The Unicorns disbanded shortly after the release of WWCOHWWG?, with founding member Nick Thorborn going on to create the band Islands, and perform in various projects.

    Somewhere In England (On Sale)

    Remastered From The Original Analogue Master Tapes And Cut At Capitol Studios To Ensure Exceptional Audio Quality Throughout


    Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Somewhere In England, released in 1981, was the first Harrison album to be released after the death of his former Beatles bandmate John Lennon. The original recordings submitted by Harrison in 1980 were rejected by Warner Bros for being 'too laid back' and not sufficiently commercial. 'Blood From A Clone', Harrison s searing indictment of the executives behind the decision, would make the final cut. After the shock and devastation of Lennon's murder, Harrison decided to also utilize the unfinished recording of 'All Those Years Ago'. He changed the lyrics of the song to reflect the Lennon tragedy. Harrison invited Paul and Linda McCartney, and their fellow Wings bandmate Denny Laine, to record backing vocals on what would be his biggest hit since 'Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)'.

    Tomorrow's Hits

    After spending much of 2011 and 2012 on the road, including a trip upstate to
    write and record New Moon, their fourth full-length in as many years, The Men
    needed a break. They decided to take the winter of 2012 off to work on new
    material in Brooklyn. The converted founding member Mark Perro's bedroom
    in Bushwick into a practice space and rehearsed there nearly every day for three
    months, cutting more than 40 demos. By the end of that winter, the Men had
    pared that crop of songs down to 13. With their plans to take a break foiled by
    their own work ethic, they decided to record those songs before New Moon came
    out. They booked two days at Brooklyn's Strange Weather studios, clocked in,
    and tracked all 13 songs entirely live, even including a horn section.


    Eight songs from those sessions made the final cut for The Men's new LP,
    Tomorrow's Hits. This is their first album recorded in a high-end studio and,
    appropriately, the result is their most high fidelity album to date. That being said,
    it is still an incredibly straightforward record. Tomorrow's Hits is a concise
    collection of songs that nonetheless expands the band's ever-evolving musical
    palette. It's full of genre-bending risks, but it reinforces the overarching theme
    that has come to define its makers: The Men are a great rock band.

    This World Is Not Enough

    Since 2010, Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (Iceage, Vår) has used the Marching
    Church moniker to a variety of musical ends, both live and recorded. However,
    the project as it exists on This World Is Not Enough wasn't born until November
    2013. With a live performance looming and no real idea what the set would be,
    Rønnenfelt found a new vision for the band while daydreaming at a gig at the
    venue where Marching Church was set to perform. "What I pictured was me in a
    comfortable armchair, adorned in a golden robe, leading a band while a girl kept
    pouring me champagne when I required it," Rønnenfelt explained. "This raised
    the question, 'What sort of music would go along with this picture?'"


    Rønnenfelt discovered the answer to that question with a lineup rounded out by
    Kristian Emdal and Anton Rothstein of Lower, Cæcilie Trier (Choir of Young
    Believers), Bo H. Hansen (Hand of Dust, Sexdrome) and Frederikke Hoffmeier
    (Puce Mary). Under Rønnenfelt's leadership, the group composed some music,
    rehearsed twice, and played their show. It was decided that night that this incarnation
    of Marching Church would make a record.


    This World Is Not Enough was influenced at first by obscure works like David
    Maranha's experimental drone-rock saga Antarctica, and eventually by soul
    bandleaders like James Brown and Sam Cooke. "The whole month of writing
    and rehearsing and the one week we had in the studio was truly an explosion
    of ideas," Rønnenfelt said. "Improvisation, something I have never worked with
    before, was crucial in the making of this album, considering the loose nature
    of the writing on some of these songs. The album works because of the band's
    incredible ability of breathing life into these, at times, very simple ideas and
    experiments."


    The eight tracks that made the final cut are, in Rønnenfelt's words, "songs of
    nocturnal longing, preposterous self-obsession and cockeyed etiquette," and they
    are an exemplary statement of the songwriter's extraordinary growth since the
    birth of Iceage.

    In Italy

    Featuring standout renditions of Straight, No Chaser, Bemsha Swing, and Rhythm-A-Ning, In Italy captures pianist/composer Thelonious Monk
    flexing his trademark idiosyncratic chops on what would be his final recording for the Riverside label. Cut live in concert while on an extensive European
    tour, this set from 1961 serves as a final reminder of the legendary catalog Monk built while recording for Riverside and hinted at the genius yet to be
    recorded. Accompanied by tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse, bassist John Ore, and drummer Frankie Dunlop, Monk shines here, turning in more of the
    style the set him apart from his peers as an individualistic player capable of consistently expressive, stylistic and sophisticated performances.

    The Godfather Soundtrack

    Nino Rota's compositions come to life in a dark, looming, and elegant soundtrack. The soundtrack's Main Title is a classical recording, and establishes a theme for the rest of the score. I Have but One Heart is the sole vocal track on the album, featuring Al Martino switching from English to Italian lyrics. The Halls of Fear develops the theme even further by adding a dark, jazzy slant to it. The standout cut is The Godfather Finale. This is where the theme becomes undeniable, and simply striking.

    Curated By Irmin Schmidt And Daniel Miller


    Compiled By Irmin Schmidt And Jono Podmore, And Edited By Jono Podmore


    Includes A 24" Square Poster And A 28-Page Booklet With Sleeve Notes By Irmin Schmidt And Ian Harrison


    Mute are delighted to announce that, due to phenomenal demand, Can's The Lost Tapes will be re-released as a limited edition 5 LP box set on 180g vinyl. The Lost Tapes was curated by Irmin Schmidt and Daniel Miller, compiled by Irmin Schmidt and Jono Podmore, and edited by Jono Podmore. The vinyl issue of The Lost Tapes will come with a 24" square poster and a 28-page booklet with sleeve notes by Irmin Schmidt and Ian Harrison.


    As is now known, when the legendary Can studio in Weilerswist was sold to the German Rock N Pop Museum, they bought everything, including the army mattresses that covered the walls for sound protection, and relocated it to Gronau. Whilst dismantling the studio, master tapes were found and stored in the Spoon archive. With barely legible labeling, no one was sure what was on these until Irmin Schmidt and long time collaborator Jono Podmore started to go through over 50 hours of music. What they found was years of archived material, not outtakes, but rather tracks which had been shelved for a variety of reasons - soundtracks to films that were never released and tracks that didn't make it onto the final versions of albums due to space. The final cut of tracks, dating from 1968-1977, features studio material recorded at Schloss Nörvenich and Can Studio, Weilerswist with the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards, and on most tracks, vocals from Malcolm Mooney or Damo Suzuki.


    Can's influence is well known and far-reaching and the impact they made on music is felt today as keenly as it ever has been. They themselves have always been impossible to classify and reflecting this, the scope of artists who in recent years have cited Can as a major influence is varied from John Lydon to Radiohead, The Fall to Portishead.

    This Year's Best Disaster

    Available on Vinyl for the First Time in The United States!


    With former members of Garrison, Texas Is The Reason, Thursday, and Milhouse making up the lineup of I Hate Our Freedom, there wasn't a doubt that the band's second release, This Year's Best Disaster, could be anything short of jaw dropping. The disc, which will be the first available vinyl in the States, is a nostalgic collection of post-hardcore from the '90s. Featuring loud, gritty and raw vocals, edgy grooves, sleek riffs and loud drums, "3am New York City" encompasses the attitude of the sleepless city. Seamless quarter glides into "Sans Sympathie," which is a bit mellower than the previous sucker-punching cut, but keeps the release moving. As This Year's Best Disaster continued on, it was nearly impossible to not get excited to see what the next track had to offer. The combined forces of the talented veterans created something that isn't seen too often lately.


    This Year's Best Disaster peaks during the brash "Second Telling Of A First Degree." The number throttles the entire album into overdrive with its nimble and lively instruments, and Joseph Grillo's bold and rugged voice makes its mark on the listener. As much as each cut has its own unique qualities that add to their wow factor, "Letterbomb" lacks the extra oomph that the other pieces on the collection have. Despite the setback, which really doesn't severely impact the disc, I Hate Our Freedom makes a full recovery. Despite each song on This Year's Best Disaster having their own strong points, the final four cuts are some of the most intense on the album. Leaving two of the strongest pieces to close it out, I Hate Our Freedom creates the need to replay the angsty disc all over again.

    River

    River was a looser and rootsier affair than Terry Reid's first records, taken from a sprawl of sessions in London and California that generated enough material for several albums. The very looseness that gives the effort some charm is the same quality, however, that keeps it from being a major work. The songs mostly sound unfinished, as if they're friendly jams in which Reid and the musicians (including, most notably, David Lindley on half the album and percussionist Willie Bobo on the title track) are working out some song ideas or twisting around some riffs. It often brings to mind those parts of songs where the likes of Van Morrison, Tim Buckley, or Robert Plant sing-scat improvised-sounding vocal passages. The difference is that, for the most part, those singers used such sections to embellish solid songs. On River, the quasi-stream-of-consciousness vocal ramblings are the songs. The first four of the seven songs are very much in a funky, laid-back blues-rock groove, prominently featuring Lindley on steel, slide, and electric guitars. Reid, and the album itself, really begin to find more of an individual voice on 'River,' where beguiling Latin-Brazilian elements are introduced in the guitar, melody, and rhythm. The final two cuts, 'Dream' and 'Milestones,' back Reid's vocals only with acoustic guitar, and have a romantic melancholy that likewise makes them highlights of this highly personal but uneven record.

    Death To False Metal

    Death To False Metal is not a traditional collection of studio leftovers or songs from the vault, but a wholly original follow-up to Weezer's just-released Hurley. The album was created using the basic tracks of 10 previously unreleased recordings-nine never-before-heard songs plus one cover-to assemble a brand new and truly modern-sounding record. The result is an evolution for the band, a giant step forward with a nod to the past.


    ''These were great songs, great recordings, but for some reason they didn't make the final cut for previous records,'' Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo stated. ''Some just weren't right for the albums we were recording at the time-just a bit ahead of their time or too 'rock.' Now, the time is right to introduce them. Together, they are the album that should logically follow Hurley.''


    Featuring tracks the band originally began recording from the late '90s to late '00s, Death To False Metal was a labor of love for Cuomo and his co-producer Shawn Everett, as well as the entire band. Each track was individually evaluated by the production team of Cuomo and Everett to figure out how to make each of the songs reach their full potential, and ultimately fit harmoniously on the album. After that process, they then brought in each band member in to complete the parts needed. Some of the ten songs received a major overhaul, while others got the equivalent of a sonic tune-up.


    ''Turning Up The Radio'' is the result of Cuomo's 2008 collaborative YouTube project, ''Let's Write A Sawng,'' for which he invited fans to submit ideas. As they went through the steps of composing a tune, eventually, 15 people became involved. This track is one of only two songs not solely penned by Weezer for Death To False Metal.


    ''Blowin' My Stack,'' ''Losing My Mind'' (which features some of the most raw and personal emotions in a Weezer song), ''I'm A Robot,'' and a rock cover of the massive R&B hit ''Un-Break My Heart'' were all first recorded prior to the release of 2005's Make Believe. ''I Don't Want Your Loving'' was originally laid down as a demo for 2002's Maladroit. The abrasive punk-metal ''Everyone'' hails from post-1998 Pinkerton period, as does the pop song ''Trampoline.'' The piano-based ''Odd Couple'' and new-wave-style ''Auto-Pilot'' were laid down prior to 2008's Weezer (aka ''The Red Album'').


    The title Death To False Metal comes from a phrase that Cuomo and his younger brother used when they were kids. Musical integrity was a matter of life or death then, and now the new album is a reminder of how important music is for both Weezer and their many fans. At a time when many of their contemporaries seem to have forgotten how to rock, Weezer is ready to teach them. Cuomo and fellow axe-slinger Brian Bell crafted nine epic guitar solos-one for nearly every song on Death To False Metal-and with the band's signature hooks in full effect, Weezer's school of rock is back in session.

    Attack & Release

    Until now, guitarist-singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney of the Black Keys took an extreme do-it-yourself approach to record making, hunkering down in a basement studio or setting up equipment in one of the abandoned factories of their native Akron, Ohio. Their modus operandi was more seance than session. With a minimal set of tools, they conjured up a big, swaggering blues-rock sound, seemingly drawn from some distant time and place yet too weirdly original to ever be called retro. As Rolling Stone put it in a review of their 2006 Nonesuch debut, Magic Potion, Pure blues rock of this caliber is really timeless.


    For this album, however, the Black Keys decided not to go it alone: Attack and Release is the result of one of the most audacious and eagerly awaited collaborations in alternative rock history. As producer, Auerbach and Carney chose Danger Mouse, the mega-eclectic sonic mastermind behind the Grammy Award-winning Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere and its multi-format hit, Crazy, as well as the music-industry provocateur who created the mother of all mash-ups, The Grey Album. The Black Keys also deigned to work at an established studio, albeit one within driving distance of Akron. Suma Recording, a legendary spot in northeast Ohio renowned for its supply of great vintage gear, provided just the right ambience for the guys. As Carney put it, with genuine affection, Suma smells like a moldy cabin and looks like a haunted house.


    On Attack and Release, Danger Mouse is more creative co-conspirator than traditional figure behind the boards. He doesn't radically alter the duo's sound so much as coax out more of its inherent soulfulness, groove and bittersweet emotion. Two versions of Remember When illustrate how the duo can swing easily from smoldering ballad to thrashing rocker. I'm more pleased with the sound of this record than any one we've ever made, says Carney, and Auerbach concurs: We never let it all go like we did for this one, anything was game. It was just fun to make, and that's why I think it's so successful. The band adds more instrumentation to their mix, including piano, organ and moog synthesizer. Danger Mouse fashions subtle special effects, like the ghostly background choir that surfaces on the moody I Got Mine, which sounds as if it were samples from some old Warner Bros. cartoon. The Black Keys also invited in a few special guests: guitarist Marc Ribot and clarinetist-flautist (and Pat's uncle) Ralph Carney, both veterans of Tom Waits' band and players on countless avant-rock/jazz/noise session. Jessica Lea Mayfield a/k/a Chittlin, an impressive 18 year-old bluegrass/country singer from Kent, Ohio, sings alongside a heart-breakingly plaintive Auerbauch on the slow-dance final cut, Things Ain't Like They Used to Be

    Barely Real

    Seminal Slowcore Progenitor's Sub Pop Albums Reissued Individually as Deluxe 2LP + CD Editions!


    Restored from the Original Masters & Complete w/ Additional Singles, Demos, Live Recordings and Peel Sessions!


    From 1990-1994, New York City's Codeine were making somnambulant waves on a musical landscape reeling from Sub Pop's better known exports. 1991's Frigid Stars, 1992's Barely Real, and 1994's The White Birch received much critical praise upon release, but Codeine dissolved before any of that hype would carry Low, Bedhead, and the Red House Painters to international acclaim.


    All three albums will be subjected to Numero's notoriously elaborate packaging and detailed liner notes, including essays by Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman, Love Child's Alan Licht, and the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd. The albums have been faithfully restored from the original masters, and are accompanied by a plethora of singles, demos, live recordings, and Peel sessions. Each album will be packaged as a double album with a CD of the same material.


    Codeine's second release, the 6-song EP Barely Real, was originally issued in 1992. Several of the songs from the Barely Real recording sessions were rejected and would be re-recorded for the band's final album The White Birch. Features the David Grubbs solo cut W and a cover of MX-80 Sound's Promise of Love. 2LP + CD edition features 7 bonus tracks including demos and alternate takes.


    In support of this great undertaking, Codeine's original line-up of Stephen Immerwahr, John Engle, and Chris Brokaw will be reuniting for a handful of dates in the US and Europe, including All Tomorrow's Parties in both London and Japan, and Primavera in Spain.

    What Have You Done, My Brother

    Like many gospel and R&B singers, Naomi Davis Shelton learned to sing at an early age in the church where she was baptized in Alabama. She began her professional career with a gig as the house singer at a little club called the Night Cap in Brooklyn, NY. It was there where she would meet the man who would become her producer, mentor, and friend for life.


    Cliff Driver and his band were just off the road backing Baby Washington as part of the James Brown Revue, and had taken a job as the house band at the Night Cap. It would be a number of years before they would meet up again, but Cliff took an instant liking to Naomi's voice. I liked her cause she had a different type voice, a raspy sound like Mavis Staples.


    In 1999, Cliff and Naomi were doing a club set with legendary James Brown bassist Fred Thomas at Flannery's in Manhattan, when then Desco Records label man Gabriel Roth approached them about doing a recording. Naomi and Cliff cut 41st Street Breakdown. The record made some noise on the then budding deep funk scene, getting heavy rotation at overseas funk parties.


    Over the next few years, Roth formed and developed Daptone Records with partner and saxophonist Neal Sugarman. It took three sets of sessions over three years before Roth and Driver finally found the right combination of singers, songs, and musicians to cut Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens' full length. The final result, What Have You Done, My Brother?, is a testament to the singular sound of gospel and soul music.

    Arthur Lee opened many eyes when he cut 1969's uniformly wonderful Love album, Four Sail, with an entirely new supporting cast. The band's final record for Elektra features such delights as The Singing Cowboy, a loping, locoweed-dusted trail ballad, Robert Montgomery, Lee's assimilation of Eleanor Rigby's-style magic, and the band's heartfelt show-closer at the time, I'll Pray For You.

    Many Levels of Laughter


    Clear Vinyl


    The appeal of J. Fernandez and his music is summed up right there in the name - he's a bit mysterious. It isn't that he's hiding anything, he's only just revealing what he wants to, keeping the remainder close to his chest. Likewise, there's a certain, undeniable feeling associated with his songwriting, but describing it is easier said than done. That's because there are plenty of familiar touchstones and influences deep in the songs; intricately woven, Marquee Moon guitars, an affectless, Kraftwerk-ian singing style, psychedelic dissonance and melodic structures not entirely unlike The United States of America, and a modern warmth like Chris Cohen's work with The Curtains and Deerhoof. But, dropping these names doesn't adequately sum up what J. Fernandez has captured here. On Many Levels of Laughter, he's invited us into his own, very special, Universe. One that presumably exists only in his head, or at the very least in the Chicago bedroom where he recorded the album, alone.


    Giving yourself over to this record for 32-or-so minutes is a bit like agreeing to Gene Wilder's version of The Wondrous Boat Ride, you're going to experience things you don't expect. Some of it will be immediately wonderful, some of it will be confusing and magnificent. Only, instead of a nightmare-fueled, psychotropic freak-out, it feels more like a Brian Wilson daydream, magically stepping into the scraps of tape and interlude left on the cutting room floor once they finally got around to assembling SMiLE.

    Time Is Over One Day Old

    Bear In Heaven's new album is aptly titled Time is Over One Day Old. It's a record with a visceral
    relationship to time and its processes.Where invulnerability and ambition can support you as you grow,
    at some point they become dead weight, and being true to yourself means casting them off,starting anew.
    This plays out as a powerful analogy for the band across the arc of it's career.


    They've always made intriguing records, here especially. It's easy to see why musicians fall hard for this
    band.They entice and envelop you. Any Bear In Heaven song will most likely greet you with a provocative
    beat, textural synthesizers and unassuming but adeptly supportive bass and guitar, all exquisitely
    arranged and glistening.Jon Philpot's high,smooth,strong voice is so tightly wound into the music that
    it can be easy to overlook the lyrics, Bear In Heaven's capacious third dimension. Philpot is a center-seeking, contemplative writer who captures the fleeting thoughts that underscore our emotional lives,the
    interactions with the world that are both difficult to express and anathema in daily conversation.


    While all of this can be said of any Bear In Heaven album, each varies wildly in tone and approach. 2007's
    Red Bloom of the Boom is ambitious and experimental. Beast Rest Forth Mouth(2009)was a pivotal record
    that still feels important,seductive and intense.On their 2012 LP I Love You, It's Cool the structural and
    musical ideas are challenging, and masterfully developed. For Time is Over One Day Old,we witness the
    band once again turning their gaze inward and prioritizing their evocative abilities in line with or even
    slightly ahead of technical skills. It feels very much in the tradition of BRFM in that way. It's beautiful; it's
    moving.


    Here Philpot and Adam Wills are more deeply collaborative than ever. This album is darker at times,
    louder than their others; it feels personal and direct."If I Were To Lie"places Wills' bass groove front and
    center,"Demon" is riveting and propulsive in spite of its dark pointed lyric, and"They Dream"dissolves
    into three and a half minutes of deeply satisfying ambient synth work in its second half.Wills has always
    been the bands anchor, providing rock solid,rhythmic bass lines and guitars that blur the boundaries of
    Philpot's synth. Though in moments such as the final track, "You Don't Need The World," Wills cuts
    through with an audacious, biting guitar hook. It's a great culmination of the album's sense of release.
    This album isn't about being dark, it's about releasing darkness and frustration.


    When bands age well, their vitality takes shape. They wear, but with intention. They trim excesses.
    Throughout this album you'll hear a band at peace with themselves. They've learned to cut back on that
    which is merely impressive and to concentrate on simply what is crucial.For Philpot this is about making
    something lasting. "A lot of shedding, getting rid of layers and preconceptions breaking up with old
    ways of thinking, old ways of being, starting to look at this thing in a new way and finding something
    positive."The result is a record that will stay with you.

    Remastered From The Original Analogue Master Tapes And Cut At Capitol Studios To Ensure Exceptional Audio Quality Throughout


    Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Brainwashed is the twelfth and final studio album by George Harrison, released in 2002, almost a year after his death at age 58. Harrison began recording the tracks on Brainwashed as early as 1988 and continued to do so in a sporadic manner over the next decade and a half. Harrison's final work on the album was carried out at a recording studio in Switzerland shortly before his trip to the United States for cancer treatment. On 29 November 2001, Harrison died, leaving Brainwashed unfinished, but with a guide to completing it in the hands of his son and long-time collaborator and close friend, Jeff Lynne. After a few months away from the project, both the younger Harrison and Lynne returned to working on George's final songs and added the appropriate instruments, as per their composer's specifications, to complete his final album.

    Gaudi

    Gaudi was the tenth and final Alan Parsons Project studio album released in 1987. Inspired as he was by the Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi, Alan Parsons built a truly passionate concept album. Money Talks and Closer To Heaven, which were used in episodes of Miami Vice are, without a doubt, the tracks that sonically define this record. But then there's Paseo de Gracia, a fully orchestrated track in the typical vein of Alan Parsons Project, which can be counted as an exquisite instrumental masterpiece. The masterfully cut Gaudi album simply is yummy for the ears. We are extremely proud to extend the ever expanding catalogue by releasing number eight of the Project's discography!
