    The La's

    The La's is the only studio album by the English rock band The La's. It was released in 1990 and featured the hit,"There She Goes" alongside the singles "Way Out", "Timeless Melody", and "Feelin". The album was praised by both critics and fans and was a result of a three-year stint in the studio with various producers and the band.Songwriter and lead vocalist, Lee Mavers was unhappy with the recording and the album was immediately disowned by the band. This only elevated its success.

    Santana IV: Live At The House Of Blues - Las Vegas

    Import


    On March 21st, 2016, a few weeks prior to the release of the "Santana IV" album, the classic line-up of Santana took to the stage at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas. The show they delivered combined tracks from the new album with the classic hits from the band's first three albums, to which "Santana IV" is the natural successor. This was a hugely anticipated reunion of a line-up that had not performed and recorded together since the early seventies. It brought back the scintillating combination of rock, Latin, blues, jazz and African rhythms which was the band's trademark and made them truly unique. The concert was a celebration of the chemistry, dynamism and pure musical joy that had made the original band so special and earned them a place in so many fans' hearts. It is a show to be enjoyed over and over again.

    Heaven Or Las Vegas


    Heavyweight Black Vinyl Cut From HD 96/24 Masters


    Blue Bell Knoll is the fifth album by Cocteau
    Twins. Originally released in 1988 by 4AD in the UK
    and Capitol in the US, Pitchfork listed this album
    as one of the best albums of the 80s. This was the
    band's first full studio album to be released in
    the US via a distribution deal with Capitol. The
    album marked a turning point for the band. Robin
    Guthrie stated ""At first you're just trying to make
    a record, and then you're trying to make a really
    good record. And then you're trying to go further.... Blue Bell Knoll was a really important
    record to me. It really sticks as one of my favorites. Perhaps not because of how it came out,
    although it is quite listenable, but because of the
    experience of making it."  


    Heaven or Las Vegas followed in 1990, and the release was also via 4AD in the UK and Capitol in the
    US. It was the band's last album for 4AD, and was
    their most commercially successful possibly due
    to Elizabeth Fraser's much more intelligible lyrics. Numerous publications declared it one of the
    best albums of the 90s and Pitchfork called it "a
    core of ungodly gorgeous songs that is every bit
    as moving and relevant today as it ever was".


    Both of these albums have been unavailable on
    vinyl for some time. Heaven or Las Vegas has never
    been commercially available in the US on vinyl,
    while Blue Bell Knoll's vinyl via Capitol wasn't
    re-pressed after the initial release, and therefore
    hasn't been available in at least 25 years.

    Eureka (Awaiting Repress)

    Eureka, the third studio album from Canadian avante pop quintet Mother Mother, is the band's most tenacious and undaunted record to date. Slated for a Last Gang Records worldwide release, Eureka offers up eccentric, hook laden pop-meets-rock songs housed in creative arrangements with clever lyrics and intricate harmonies.


    Produced by Mother Mother's own Ryan Guldemond and mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Franz Ferdinand, Elvis Costello), the 12 new tracks that comprise the album surpass their predecessors with a greater sense of cohesion, exuberance and overall sonic depth. The Stand, Eureka's incredibly addictive lead off single is a tale of a misanthrope who corrupts the minds of two young school girls. Guldemond, the group's chief songwriter and frontman describes the album as a vivid depiction of where the band's at right now, which is the height of our musicianship, songwriting and strength as collaborators.

    Little Red Boots (Awaiting Repress)

    Lindi Ortega is a Toronto-based singer/songwriter in the mold of classic artists Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Emmy Lou Harris and contemporary acts Neko Case and Jenny Lewis. Torched songs filled with heartache and passion mixed with Lindi's Mexican/Irish heritage make for an incredible record and unique artist personality.


    With a voice that undulates with absolute splendor, Lindi recorded Little Red Boots with Juno Award winning producer Ron Lopata. CBC Radio explains her style as a dash of country, a pinch of folk, a sprinkle of rock, and a smidgeon of jazz, a genre Ortega explains as a roadside motel love affair between old school outlaws and country darlings.

    Cryptocracy (Awaiting Repress)

    From the metal-hewn flatlands of Finland comes a dark new force in electronic music. Forged in the electrical fire of industrial; nurtured through the apocalyptic feedback of art-rock, experimental and all things disruptive; and championed by the most influential names in EDM and beyond, Huoratron is deeper, stranger and harder-core than whatever came before it.


    Huoratron came to life in 2003, the brainchild of DJ/producer/mad 8-bit scientist Aku Raski. His sinister vision has taken form in just a few releases: some material for Finnish label New Judas, including the proactively aggressive Prevenge EP, containing angry blip-fest $$ Troopers and Corporate Occult, a slice of electro-house gone horribly awry. A set of remixes that changed H.I.M.'s In Venere Veritas from a jangly bit of radio rock to a doomed ride aboard a haunted 747 and M.I.A.'s Internet Connection from her usual minimal-funky hoedown to a sizzling nuclear rain storm.


    After resigning to Last Gang in 2010, Raski hit the studio, emerging a year later with Cryptocracy, his first full-length album. To be blatantly honest I do not personally feel a close resemblance to many, if any artist within my scene, Raski explains. This is mostly because I'm driven by my own vigorous motivation and do what I do despite associations made by others. I mean no disrespect by this. It is simply a fact that I, as an artist am in the center of the storm and feel content there.


    Cryptocracy is a journey of destruction, driven by chip synths, distortion and gut-punching bass. Recognizable sounds peak their heads out occasionally: a house riff on Transcendence, a dubstep pass on Sea of Meat, stripped-down techno on A699F. But they're swallowed up by an apocalyptic wave; the noises, textures and sonic sneak attacks that are Huoratron's signature, born more from a feeling than a particular genre focus.

    Angel Shadow

    It's no surprise that Kim Free started playing the violin at the age of 5. Just about everyone on her father's side of the family was musical. Her great-grandmother conducted orchestras in silent movie theaters. Her grandmother and grandfather both played violin, grandpa with the Cincinnati Symphony. Her aunt is a professional harpist in Lexington, Kentucky. It was in her blood. Growing up at the Rinzai-Ji Zen Center in West Adams, Los Angeles, she diligently practiced her violin while simultaneously absorbing the pop music of the day, especially alternative stalwarts like New Order and The The. As an undergrad at Loyola Marymount University she became Program Director of KXLU, the acclaimed radio station based at the University. She continued playing violin, but this time in a supporting role, with local LA artists like Lavender Diamond.


    After graduating in 2006, Kim decided to try her hand at making music on her own. So she took her computer into her bedroom and started crafting some lo-fi compositions. Although she didn't play her violin on her home recordings (she couldn't get the right sound quality), Kim used guitar, bass, synthesizer and sometimes vocals to build her music, which ranged from ethereal to experimental to just plain pop. The cassette DIY culture was just (re)starting in 2008, and Kim's peers wanted to release her music. She called her band Black Church and named herself Sunny Winters. Over the course of three years, there would be 5 cassette-only limited edition Black Church releases on three different labels and Kim performed about twenty shows around Los Angeles as Black Church.


    In 2010, Kim decided that her music was ready to move out of the bedroom. The new batch of songs didn't feel like Black Church, it was something new. Her friend Christy Greenwood offered to record her, and so, free of the constraints of the straight-to-GarageBand recording, she was able to once again call upon her first musical voice, the violin.


    Angel Shadow is the result of those sessions. Disarmingly fragile and hauntingly dreamy, the 11-song soundscape is scattered with instant earworms that subtly betray Kim's love for pop music. This is an album of transition, the death of Black Church and the subsequent birth of Kim Free, so it's no surprise that all of the songs (including the instrumentals) are inspired by the idea of transition, either to death, like Ease Into Piece and Guantanamo or into the unknown, like Goodbye My Love. From the instrumental opening of Diamond Channel through the hypnotic loop of Starlight Corridor and the satisfying coda of Silver Screen, Angel Shadow tells a story and invites exploration.


    Kim Free plays all of the instruments on Angel Shadow, her debut solo album, and she intends to do the same when she starts performing the songs live later in 2012. She'll be hitting performance spaces around the country armed with her mandolin, keyboard, and her grandmother's violin.

    The Sticks (Awaiting Repress)

    "Bit by bit, gonna get my bricks out in the sticks / Bit by bit, gonna build my house in the wildest thickets / Gonna get away from all those mouths and my shit / Gonna say good-bye to all the la-di-da-di-da-di-da-di-da," Mother Mother's singer and guitarist Ryan Guldemond sings on "Bit By Bit", the song he calls the benchmark piece and anthem of The Sticks. And so it goes on this Canadian five-piece's latest effort, an album about "longing to escape the clutches of the modern world."


    The album is about as unpredictable musically as it is lyrically, with "Let's Fall in Love" eventually revealing dirty, "Supermassive Black Hole"-esque guitars, "Little Pistol" busting out strings and reserving into a fuzzy, evolving folk tune, and the drums on the title track revealing themselves as a dead-ringer for "When The Levee Breaks. Random though this journey into the Canadian countryside may be, it's a damn fun ride. A pit stop in the band's more folky past pops up on track five, the acoustic, vocal-driven "Dread In My Heart", whose "We Are Going To Be Friends"-simplicity and lyrics like, "There's a god awful shitty feeling of dread in my heart / And I can't seem to change my attitude, but I can change my heart," effortlessly resonate.

    Siberia Acoustic (Awaiting Repress)

    Siberia Acoustic is the first remix album by Canadian singer-songwriter Lights.


    When electro-rock sensation Lights first hit the music scene in 2008, she was just a songwriter with a synth and a dream. She was a one-woman show who played and programmed her own instruments and sang her own lyrics. After releasing her debut album, The Listening, Lights was ready to open herself up to collaborations on her unexpectedly experimental album Siberia.


    By choosing to collaborate with live electronic outfit Holy Fuck and rising rapper Shad, she opened up her sound. Siberia's beats skitter and thwack, the retro electronics fire like decomposing lasers and the analog synths dirty up her trademark pretty melodies, propelling Lights emotion-soaked but still-cute croon into her sprawling, imperfect new sound.

    Bear Mountain's electro/dance style blends syncopated bass lines and arpeggiated synth chords with live instrumentation and soaring vocals to produce a style that is unmistakably fresh and powerfully captivating.


    With a vocal timbre reminiscent of Ray Lamontagne, and an emotive, spacious sensibility in the vein of Damien Rice, Bear Mountain performs with powerful release and vulnerable honesty.


    Certain songs make you feel younger. It's something more than nostalgia; there's a joyous enthusiasm in some music that doesn't bring you back to the time you were young, but back to the sensation of being young. With the six songs on their debut album, xo, Vancouver duo Bear Mountain achieve this heart-pumping, smile-widening freedom, parsing the elements of dozens of genres and times and spinning them around until the listener becomes gleefully dizzy. - Adam Kivel

    Live It Out (Awaiting Repress)

    Live It Out is the second album released by the Canadian indie rock band Metric. It was originally released in September 27, 2005 on Last Gang Records.


    Toronto's Metric has the ability to appeal to fans on a number of levels: the group captures the likeability of Elastica with the cheekiness of Blondie and then mixes that new wave style with just enough of a growling guitar to give it some oomph. Since their last release, the acclaimed Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, Metric's sound has morphed slightly; this follow-up is a little more guitar-based and slightly less electronic than their last, a move likely to broaden their fan base even further.


    Metric's rock-meets-new-wave is not only timely, it is joyful to boot. The driving track Handshakes could easily qualify for the next ipod commercial, while Monster Hospital's retro punk style has a Clash-inspired chorus that will stay in your head for days. By the same token, the band's musical diversity is especially evident in the beautiful The Police and the Private, where one could easily imagine that they are listening to an up-tempo Sarah Harmer track. Metric's cross-genre appeal is at least party due to frontwoman Emily Haines' delivery. A smart writer and performer, Haines' contributions to the Broken Social Scene collective have already made her voice somewhat familiar, and in her own element she shines especially bright. From her delicate whispers (the Pink Floyd-esque Ending Start) to her Eurotrash-inspired yelps (Live It Out) Haines has the it factor that makes indie rock critics swoon, and keeps fans dedicated. --Denise Sheppard

    Tin Star (Awaiting Repress)

    Tin Star, the latest album from critically lauded singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega, is released by Last Gang Records. The record follows 2012's Polaris Prize long-listed Cigarettes and Truckstops and her 2011 Juno Award-nominated debut Little Red Boots. Billboard called Cigarettes and Truckstops heartfelt and mood-inducing, a uniquely bluesy twist on pre-outlaw country while The New York Times praised Ortega for having untamed instincts, but classic bones.


    Produced by Grammy-nominated Dave Cobb (Secret Sisters, Shooter Jennings), Tin Star demonstrates the unique voice and songwriting that Ortega has come to be known for and is largely inspired by Ortega's adopted home of Nashville. Born and bred in Toronto, Ortega made the move to Music City to be closer to the musicians who inspired her. It's always my goal to raise the bar with each record I put out. I have witnessed so much talent living in Nashville that has inspired me to push myself even further, she explains. I like to work with different musicians and producers to change the feel of every release. I don't want to risk making the same record over and over. Working with a new group brings a new spirit and new ideas to the music.

    Guilt Trips

    Canada's own Ryan Hemsworth has become one of the fastest rising producers and remix artist in the past couple of years. Since his first official release in 2012 Last Words on West Coast label Wedidit Collective, he's gained notoriety for his original production and collaborations, and has since then amassed fans and charmed critics all over the world- meanwhile touring Europe, Australia, and North America with the likes of Bauuer, Daedelus, and others.


    Now, the man some call "The Internet Zack Morris" and "The Remix Ryan Gosling" is proud to announce his debut album Guilt Trips on famed label Last Gang Records due out in 2013.


    On this newest full length, Hemsworth digs deeper beyond the hip hop, r&b and dance music world to inspirations that sprout from a time before he made the type of music that people have come to expect.


    "For this project, I wanted to just expand on everything, lay as much as I could out on the table," he explains. "There's a lot more of me on this than my last projects. With a lot of the songs, I had high school in mind and during that time I was making music with my voice, guitar, and samples, so I've gone back to the first two a bit more, and also getting help from vocalists. Some of the club music that I've been surrounded by in the past year can be really cold, so I think once you throw in more melody and emotion that can only come from the human voice and guitar, it becomes a lot warmer."


    "I reached out to friends and people I admire really. I wanted kind of unexpected collaborations and people with a uniqueness to them, instead of just reaching out to random top-liners. Someone like Lofty305, who has a weird, certainly not trained voice, made sense for "Against A Wall" because I wanted it to match the mood of the track. That's so much more important to me than making a perfect song. I just wanted to flesh out that charming imperfection on a lot of the tracks. When I asked the people on it to do their parts, I didn't direct them too much but just asked them to think of a breakup or a time when they felt weird or shitty from love. All of my music is sparked from love in some form or another I think, so this album is kind of just a capsule of different moods caused by love."

    Alone For The First Time

    Upcoming studio album from producer and remix artist Ryan Hemsworth.


    Alone For The First Time comes at a busy time for the Canadian beatmaker. Not only is it landing just a year after his debut album, Guilt Trips, but also amidst a hectic world touring schedule and the release of a new compilation from the free-to-download digital label Secret Songs that he launched this past spring.


    You might already know Alone For The First Time's first single, Snow In Newark, which had hints of emo-inflected indie rock. Apparently that's the theme on the new LP, with Hemsworth claiming that he's fighting with expectations and conventional formulas in a press release, adding 'Snow In Newark' and the rest of this album are [his] personal reactions to the current state of electronic and rock music.


    In addition to vocals from Dawn Golden on that first single, the record also features appearances from New Zealand's Lontalius, trance-baiting entity Doss, Little Cloud and others. Like Guilt Trips, it'll see release on Canadian label Last Gang Records.

    Secret Life

    Toronto duo Moon King have crafted a raw, rapturous and emotional new record, which documents their ascent from an intimate conceptual project into a powerful live band. A first preview of the record comes with the chugging propulsion, soaring harmonies and cosmic haze of album opener 'Roswell'.


    In 2013, Moon King, made up of songwriter Daniel Benjamin and singer/guitarist Maddy Wilde, played over 100 shows to support a pair of EPs, Obsession I and II, which were released on Fucked Up's One Big Silence label in North America and Tough Love in UK/Europe. After a year spent on the road, it became evident they should capture the energy of their live show while it was fresh. Following a performance at Iceland Airwaves, Daniel & Maddy relocated to a cottage in northern Ontario to record the album with a group of Toronto music scene luminaries, all of whom had played in various incarnations of the live band.


    Most of the tracks on the album were recorded live off the floor, with little except the vocals added, put to tape by live sound engineer Noah Giffin (Owen Pallett, Austra, Diana). Though only five days of recording were booked, an ice storm prevented them from leaving, resulting in an extra couple of days work. The record was then mixed in New York with Jacob Portrait of Unknown Mortal Orchestra/Blouse.


    The album's production introduces further nuance to the wall-of-sound approach of the EPs, stripping back dense layers to unearth spellbinding vocals and melodies. Daniel's lyrics focus on catharsis and the weight of emotional trauma, as well as dealing with the self-doubt that stands in the way of recovery.


    Frequent show-opener "Apocalypse" begins with the confession "somehow I feel no release when I'm alone with anyone else / somehow I fall to pieces when I wake up to nothing where you should be" and builds intensity and speed until overflowing in a rush of noise, an oddly structured pop song with no repeating sections. "It's impossible / you've been run through with fear / love's a landfill / just another burning spear" chants the soaring chorus of 'Impossible'. The ultimatum at the climax of "Golden Age" - "all I want is to be wanted" channels an honest and tangible fear not common in today's pop landscape.


    This sense of loss and longing permeates the album throughout, each song carrying with it both a weight and a sense of urgency.

    After a 5 year hiatus, Canadian electronic music producers MSTRKRFT (Jessi F. Keeler & Al-P) are back. Driven by distorted drum beats, hauntingly hypnotic synths, and booming cinematic soul, OPERATOR immediately captivates. "It's probably the most acurate reflection of how we work on stage," says Jesse. "We had to be very creative with very few elements. It took time to figure that out".


    2011 was the last time we heard from MSTRKRFT with the release of the single "BACK IN THE USSA", following their Juno Award-winning debut album THE LOOKS in 2006. MSTRKRFT have released official remixes for everybody from KATY PERRY and KYLIE MINOGUE to WOLFMOTHER, Justice and Bloc Party. 2009's FIST OF GOD boasted collaborations with the likes of John Legend, Ghostface Killah, E-40, N.O.R.E., Lil' Mo and more as it predicted an eventual crossover between hip-hop and electronic music on the horizon.
