    Bustin' Surfboards

    You'd think they'd be worried sick about getting sand in their sax, but you'd be wrong. The carefree Tornadoes didn't give a rat's ass about anything but surfin' and baggin' beavers. And the world became a better place for their callous indifference to fine brass plating.

    More Lost Legends of Surf Guitar

    It's hard to think of a musical style that's more quintessentially American than surf music. Springing up along the California coast in the early 1960s, the surf sound-characterized by wet-sounding guitar reverb that echoed the sound of the sea and pummeling rhythms that emulated the ocean's currents-was originally inspired and nurtured by the culture that surrounded the sport. Despite its provincial origins, the surf genre captured the imagination of teenagers around the world, and spawned a remarkably large body of highly original music, with an emphasis on innovative guitar instrumentals that would influence rock axemen for decades to come.


    Much of that vintage surf music was originally released on small regional labels, and many of the acts that created some of the greatest surf music never released more than a handful of singles. Those factors resulted in many original surf classics remaining difficult to obtain in recent years. Sundazed Music, a longstanding champion of vintage surf music, went a long way towards remedying that situation with the release of its CD series Lost Legends of Surf Guitar. The series has been widely recognized for rescuing numerous rare, obscure and/or lesser-known gems from surf music's golden age. Now, the landmark series moves into second gear, progressing into the vinyl format with a pair of double-LP collections, each of which features 28 below-the-radar vintage surf killers.


    More Lost Legends of Surf Guitar ups the ante with 28 more vintage surf winners, with additional performances by the Challengers, Jerry Cole & His Spacemen, the Surfaris, the Tornadoes and the Trashmen, plus terrific tunes by surf innovators the Belairs, session guitar great Al Casey and regional legend Thom Starr & the Galaxies.


    This essential collection, meticulously mastered from rare vintage tapes and pressed on high-quality vinyl, is the perfect collection for gremmie and ho-dad alike, so grab this wave and jump head-first into the surf!!!

    Departing

    With The Rural Alberta Advantage's new album, 'Departing', the band further refines the exuberant guitar work; everything-on-the-table singing; songwriting full of conviction and detail; and majestic, keyboard-sprinkled arrangements that have won it so many fans. 'Departing' strings together themes of small towns, Canadian fall and winter, breakup, and redemption and serves as a companion piece to their beloved debut album 'Hometowns.' Highlights include the affecting North Star, the stark regret of Tornado, and the storming, percussive surge of Stamp, all of which vividly set the scene.

    Pain Killer

    Capitol Records Nashville, GRAMMY Award-winning group Little Big Town release their sixth studio album, Pain Killer. The album, produced by Jay Joyce, features current single Day Drinking, the bands highest chart debut to date, and was written by LBT s Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook, Phillip Sweet and songwriters Troy Verges and Barry Dean. The foursome co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks on the album.


    Sometimes you don't know what's going to happen in the studio. You just have to dive in head first and work hard to do something unique, said Fairchild. We're always striving and pushing ourselves to go somewhere new. Pain Killer is a new place for sure.


    Individually, they are four of the best singers in the world, said Mike Dungan, Chairman/CEO of Universal Music Group Nashville. Together, they are awe-inspiring. As a band, they are forever focused on taking it to the next level. The result is Pain Killer...simply the best one yet.


    Little Big Town, who have been together for 15 years, release Pain Killer on the heels of their highly successful, platinum-selling album Tornado almost exactly two years later. Tornado was one of only 10 country albums to achieve platinum certification in 2013 and features back-to-back #1 hit singles Pontoon and Tornado. The 2x platinum-selling Pontoon took home the GRAMMY Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and the CMA Award for Single of the Year.

    Unless You Speak Your Heart / Something In Between

    Porcelain Raft's thesis statement hits when side B kicks off with Unless You Speak From Your Heart. Remiddi's enigmatic vocals carrying a hook so simple that you might think you sang it first; keys and bass that might make the needle jump off of your turntable; and a sense of raw sincerity that has come to trademark Remiddi's songs is what ultimately resonates. The b-side, Something In Between, with it's shimmering Cocteau Twins guitar line, cleft bass, and colorful reverb is the gentlest of tornados.

There's also a rarely-heard track by legendary Minnesota surf-garage kings the Trashmen, the out-there Devil Surfer by Scott Engel (who would soon go on to pop stardom and cult acclaim as Scott Walker) and scarce versions of such surf anthems as Jack the Ripper, Point Panic and Moondawg.

    Workbench Songs

    Available On Vinyl For The First Time


    Offered here for the first time ever on vinyl, Workbench Songs was originally released on CD in 2006. It represented Guy Clark's 10th studio release and continued his legacy as one of the most critically acclaimed Texas songsmith's of our time. The Austin American Statesman had this to say of the 2006 release:


    Guy Clark dominates the discussion with his opinion on Townes Van Zandt whenever it comes to talking about who is the one plus ultra Texas songwriter. He has a point, of course, but if Townes is No. 1, Clark is No. 1A. Workbench Songs goes a mighty long way to proving that true. It's not just another collection of his finely crafted songs, his first for a new label. It's one of the best albums of his career. What's continually amazing about Clark is his ability to capture a sweeping range of emotions and everyday occurrences in song, from joy and pain to roadhouse rambunctious and Mexicans visiting Graceland, with exquisite simplicity and captivating lucidity. Here his co-writers are the best of their ilk, Rodney Crowell, Gary Nicholson, Darrell Scott, Lee Roy Parnell, and longtime collaborator Verlon Thompson, but there's also a chilling version of Van Zandt's "No Lonesome Tune," perhaps to demonstrate his point. Songs like Celtic flavored set opener, "Walkin' Man," the comically breezy "Tornado Time in Texas," and the universally recognizable scene set in "Out in the Parkin' Lot" stand out on a collection that may be from the workbench but is nowhere near workmanlike.

    Down The River Of Golden Dreams

    Okkervil River's Down the River of Golden Dreams takes the band's hallmarks - lush, eclectic orchestration that evokes chamber pop and soul, lapel-gripping emotional urgency, and the lyrical, direct songwriting of frontman Will Sheff - and expands and elevates them in service of a stunningly ambitious set of new songs.


    If last year's Don't Fall in Love with Everyone You See was the middle of the darkest night of the year, Down the River of Golden Dreams is the earliest light of a morning that could either bring the first breeze of spring or a battalion of tornadoes. On it the band stretches their wings, they shake off the fear and trepidation of the last record and try to look life in the face, emboldened by distorted blasts of Wurlitzer, guttural stabs of Hammond organ, urbane strings, and jaunty horns that could be the work of a shitfaced Canadian Brass. Down the River of Golden Dreams combines with Okkervil's trademark melancholy a sense of drama and play at which the last album only hinted. It oozes the band's signature string-destroying folk-rock attack and umbilical chamber-pop swoon, but it also echoes the venomous cabaret of Jacques Brel, the off-kilter swagger of the Faces and Bob Dylan's Blonde On Blonde, and the dusky balladry of Nick Cave. In addition, it displays a new confidence in frontman Will Sheff, whose concise, literary lyrics and emotionally direct delivery are rapidly distinguishing him as one of rock music's best new songwriters.

    Stranger Heads Prevail

    Green Colored Vinyl


    New Jersey alt/prog connoisseurs, Thank You Scientist, have announced details of their brand new full-length, Stranger Heads Prevail that will be released via Evil Ink Records. The label is best known for being owned and ran by Coheed and Cambria lead singer, Claudio Sanchez.


    Sanchez says of the band, "Thank You Scientist is a rare band that stretches the boundaries of the listener's expectation. Their compositions are a tornado of complexity and style that compel the audience to stay present for every note."


    Following the breakout success of their debut label album, Maps Of Non-Existent Places, the band set to follow one simple but resolute goal: no expectations. Constantly writing and with an intense rehearsal schedule, the band began crafting Stranger Heads Prevail together in late 2014 under the watchful ear of guitarist/primary songwriter Tom Monda.
    According to Monda, musically the band wanted to make a rock record with multiple layers of compartmentalized detail, a la The Beatles "Abbey Road" or Queens' "Night at the Opera". "This record has a lot of attention to detail, which will hopefully keep people coming back for more. We wanted to make something that held up to both surface listens as well as tailor to listeners who are listening with a microscope of sorts. With more listens, I feel the songs unveil themselves more and more."


    Vocalist and lyricist Salvatore Marrano adds, "This is a deeply personal record for me, albeit positive, but I found myself continually needing to find the positive in all of the negative in our lives. We're all just trying to sift through the bullshit to find a bit of hope."

    Golden Tickets EP

    Describing an act called Apogee that he performed in before forming WHY?, Yoni Wolf says,I always liked to inict a moment in the spotlight on members of the audience--not voluntary or involuntary, but just regardless of the individual's preference--to frame them in this temporary bubble of fame. Words to that eect.


    This thematic inclination towards breaking the fourth wall and incorporating the audience into the performance manifested in a novel format: WHY started writing theme songs for their fans. These songs were called Golden Tickets and together they make up the Golden Tickets EP.


    The concept, Yoni explained, was that, We would write a theme song for one customer who came to the [WHY?] web store and bought something every month. Like Mighty Mouse. It would be a song about that person. We'd read all about them on Facebook and Twitter, and sometimes even go so far as to contact their signicant other to ask them questions. Then I
    would write the song on piano, and my brother would take the skeleton of lyrics & piano and turn it into a fully realized arrangement.


    They did a Golden Ticket song to raise money for victims of the Tsunami in Japan. They did a Golden Ticket contest to benet victims of tornado devastation in the South. They sold Golden Tickets on eBay. They did an iconography contest, and gave a Golden Ticket to the winner. They did a video contest and awarded a Golden Ticket to a man who didn't even attempt to do anything sensible or interesting in any way, but merely submitted footage of his shirtless & dreaded self mouthing a wordless monologue into the silence stipulated in the rules of the contest.


    All the Golden Ticket songs are now collected here, in the Golden Tickets EP.

    Cursing The Sea (Awaiting Repress)

    Ships takes their fuzzy garage pop and colors it several shades darker, resulting in an ominous amphetamine-fueled dirge full of screeching guitars, metronomic basslines, and cooly detached vocals. The Girls' pare down their sound to its steely core on Ships, using angular guitar work to sharpen their sunniest melodies to a bleeding point, making this the most thrilling music they've released in their short existence." (Pitchfork)


    Cursing The Sea, the debut album from Ireland's September Girls, is a dark kaleidoscope of echoey drums, buzzsaw bass, angular guitars and reverb-drenched vocals that blends garage rock and post-punk to extraordinary effect. Paula (Bass/Vocals), Caoimhe (Guitar/Vocals), Lauren (Keys/Vocals), Jessie (Guitar/Vocals) and Sarah (Drums) draw inspiration from the likes of Phil Spector, The Velvets, The Cure, MBV and The Jesus And Mary Chain and play reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order. Formed in Dublin in 2011, the band quickly began booking gigs in Ireland and the UK, before releasing a handful of well-received limited edition singles on various cassette and 7" labels around the world, most recently on the Haus of PINS cassette label run by their kindred spirits PINS, with whom the band have also toured. This release, for the song "Ships", gave the band their biggest press to date, with a glowing review on Pitchfork. With four different songwriters and singers, each song begins with a secret life of its own, only to be unified by the distortion-drenched harmonies and hazy pop stylings of the band.


    Whirling around in a tornado of fuzz, dazzling harmonies, disarming lyrics and dizzying excitement, Cursing the Sea is awash with enough attitude and great songs to see September Girls safely to shore. Huge amount of UK Press including NME, Uncut, Sunday times, The Guardian, The Observer, Clash and many more.

    Negative Scanner

    Negative Scanner have been destroying rooms in Chicago's vibrant DIY since 2012, earning well-deserved accolades as one of the cities best live bands. Their electrifying debut album finds the band taking on all comers; guitarist/vocalist Rebecca Valeriano-Flores' gutteral howl & lyrics have gained confidence over the course of the band's previous two singles in 2014 (their debut on Trouble In Mind & it 's follow-up on Tall Pat Records). The band (guitarist Matt Revers, bassist Nathan Beaudoin & drummer Tom Cassling) have evolved into a lurching, post-punk tornado furiously spinning into near-chaos but never leaving the band's capable control. The album's opener "Ivy League Asshole" sets the tone - feral & ragged guitars chug over the rhythm section & Flores' manic yelp spits out lyrics borne out of confusion, agression, domination & submission to life, living, lovers & beyond. The album's eleven tracks in 28 minutes fly by the lsitener, threatening whiplash but begging to be replayed. Negative Scanner 's s/t debut was recorded by the band themselves in their practice space, mixed by Mike Lust 's Phantom Mobile Unit & mastered by Australian legend Mikey Young (Total Control/Eddy Current Suppression Ring).

    Phosphorescent Harvest


    Purple & Orange Colored Vinyl


    7 Contains Two Additional Tracks


    The CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD unveil their third studio album PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST via Silver Arrow Records. The band--Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals)--will also hit the road in conjunction with the album's release.


    PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST is a treasure trove of 10 songs--including several the band road-tested over the last few years--that advances the band's kaleidoscopic sound, which is deeply soulful, rootsy and spacey all at once. There's strong songcraft here, with a free-flowing delivery; it is music that is in no hurry to reach its destination but firmly knows where it is going. From the beginning, the CRB set out to do something different from what they had done before, creating their own scene with a musical prowess, cohesive songwriting and a unified commitment to experimentation, both in the studio and on the road (they've performed over 230 shows since forming in 2011).


    The best perspective I have on what's going on in my life--good and bad--is what comes out in the songs, says Chris Robinson. As you move on in time, you get older, you have relationships. Some of them are good, some fail. Friends. Drugs. Life. Death. People come, people go. Songwriting is a completely different emotional response to your life and to what it means, to in some poetic nature, put it out there.


    PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST follows the release of the companion albums Big Moon Ritual (June 2012) and The Magic Door (September 2012) plus last year's live quadruple vinyl Betty's S.F. Blends, Vol 1. The group continues to record with producer Thom Monahan, and Robinson wrote all of the songs with Casal, save for two that are Robinson solo compositions (Tornado, Jump The Turnstiles).


    We're really going by the electricity and the vibrations that we can sort of tune in to, Robinson recently told Relix magazine (Jan/Feb '14). There's a psychedelic component to it. That's part of the greasing the wheels of the great cosmic engine, with psychedelic thought and philosophy and action. If you get my drift. He went on to talk about the more rock and roll feel on PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST, and his overall vision for the Brotherhood: I'm not going to have hit records. I don't write pop songs. But then again, I find a deep need to express myself and how I'm feeling and where I am and where I've been and where I'm going by writing songs. Why change something to make it easier for anyone else, when I think if we stay sincere and keep our energies in a real creative place, then people will wander into our small community, and it maybe would get more popular to tend that garden is a great responsibility. But I want it to grow. Check out the whole Relix feature here.


    Rolling Stone editor David Fricke picked the CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD as one of his favorites of 2012, and praised their live performance in New York City, saying the singer's acid-country Brotherhood, with ex-Ryan Adams guitarist Neal Casal, were a sublime time onstage and across these two albums, recorded at the same sessions and issued six months apart. The Irving Plaza show was a characteristic live high. In the second set, Robinson steered out of a rattling 'Tough Mama,' from Bob Dylan's Planet Waves, into the long reverie 'Girl on the Mountain,' a song from an earlier side trip, New Earth Mud, given fresh air and a new coat of DayGlo paint (1/30/13).

    Singles (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    Over the course of their mere five-year existence, Sterling, Virginias Pageninetynine redefined what punk rock could be. This venerable squad of miscreants from the outskirts of the nations capital incorporated aspects of nearly every heavy music sub-genre into a tornado of punk fury, releasing a plethora of albums, singles, splits and more, touring relentlessly and inspiring a dedicated, diehard fanbase. Robotic Empire is pleased to announce a timely re-press of the bands landmark Document #8 album and the long-awaited vinyl release of their hard-to-find Singles compilation CD.


    Singles, first released on CD in 2003 by Reptilian Records, showcases the groups evolution from humble beginnings to a furious midpoint and experimental end. The album title is somewhat of a misnomer, as the release collects material from splits with Circle Takes the Square, City of Caterpillar, Enemy Soil, Process Is Dead and Reactor No. 7, along with other short-run EP, demo and compilation tracks. Mastered by James Plotkin for a much warmer, fuller sound not heard on the original releases, Singles is an essential document for longtime fans and newcomers alike.


    Pageninetynine will reunite in August 2011 at the Best Friends Day festival in Richmond, Virginia, where they will perform Document #8 in its entirety.

    We're Not Going Anywhere (Pre-Order)

    Austin-based songwriter David Ramirez will release We're Not Going Anywhere, the follow up to his 2015 breakthrough record Fables and second in partnership with Thirty Tigers.

    Most times, when a relationship ends, there is a season of mourning but then the clouds part, the sun rises, and we move on. What happens if and when the sun doesn't rise? What happens if, no matter how hard we try, we can't move on? Ramirez explained about the song.

    On the 10 vividly imagined and passionately performed songs on We're Not Going Anywhere David Ramirez takes in the world from his unique perspective: Being half white and half Mexican has made this current political climate especially interesting. So many cultures in this country are being viewed as un-American and it breaks my heart. My family have raised children here, created successful businesses here, and are proud to be a part of this country. Most of what I've seen as of late is misplaced fear. I wanted to write about that fear and how, instead of benefiting us, it sends us spiraling out control.

    For We're Not Going Anywhere, Ramirez partnered with producer Sam Kassirer, who has helmed albums by Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Bhi Bhiman, and many other artists. In January 2017 Ramirez and his band decamped to the Great North Sound Society, an eighteenth-century farmhouse in rural Maine that serves as Kassirer's studio.

    It's very secluded, which was part of the appeal. We were able to get out of our touring headspace and stay completely involved with the record and what we were doing, explains Ramirez.

    We're Not Going Anywhere turns that distance into a big-picture perspective- engaged and informed, compassionately political but not necessarily partisan. We'd take breaks during the day and watch the news and see all the rallies and marches and the disruption and the out-of-control feeling that was everywhere then-and, frankly, still is now. We were looking around and no one was around us. The closest house was a mile away, so it was just us. We were grateful just to retreat from that social tornado for a while and create something that we hoped would be very beautiful.

    Skid Row (Awaiting Repress)

    FIRST TIME LIMITED EDITION AUDIOPHILE VINYL RELEASE OF THIS 6 X PLATINUM METAL CLASSIC!!!


    Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music and Capitol Mastering, Hollywood From The Original Atlantic Records Tapes


    Skid Row has been making very loud and credible heavy metal rock albums now for over two decades. The New Jersey quintet built a local club following throughout the late eighties and flourished into a mega-platinum recording act for Atlantic Records with their debut smash recording Skid Row.


    The Skid Row album features eleven hard hitting rock masterworks like their top charting hit singles 18 And Life and I Remember You as well as a plethora of metal radio classics like Big Guns, Can't Stand The Heartache, Here I Am and the prog-metal album closer Midnight/Tornado.


    Featuring the dynamic vocals of Sebastian Bach, the dual guitar attack of Dave "The Snake" Sabo and Scotti Hill, the blistering bass of Rachel Bolan and the powerful drum work of Rob Affuso, this Skid Row album is still the go to choice for many heavy metal fans as the band continues to be a major force in the music industry.


    When Skid Row was released in 1989, the compact disc and cassette were the dominant media of the day, and
    the original vinyl album release went on to become a highly priced collector's item chasing hundreds for a mint copy.


    Relayer Friday Music is very pleased to announce another heavy metal classic with the debut top five, six million selling album Skid Row by Skid Row. Mastered from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe "Heavy Metal Kid" Reagoso (Deep Purple/Alice Cooper), this first time audiophile vinyl release will be one of the most anticipated heavy metal audiophile releases this summer.

    Bloodbath Over Bloodstock (Out of Stock)

    Live Onslaught By The Swedish Death Metal Masters From The UK's Bloodstock Festival, On Double 180 Gram Gatefold Vinyl


    Bloodbath is an extreme metal supergroup from Stockholm, Sweden. Formed in 1998 with a mutual fascination for the glory days of death metal (especially Swedish legends such as Entombed & Dismember), the band's core line-up has remained mostly solid through the years since their Breeding Death EP was unleashed back in 2000.


    Bloodbath Over Bloodstock presents Bloodbath live and in-the-flesh carving through a scintillating set in August 2010 at the famed Bloodstock festival - one of the UK's leading metal events. This incarnation of Bloodbath features prominent members of Katatonia and Opeth, including the unmistakable Mikael Åkerfeldt on vocals.


    This double vinyl edition offers a pummelling set of ferocious brutality featuring numerous classics and fan favorites from the band's whole catalogue to date in an unrelenting death metal attack, including songs from 2008's highly-acclaimed tornado of blasphemy, The Fathomless Mastery.


    The band has continued to scale new heights, with 2014's 'Grand Morbid Funeral' opus marking a new career highlight, with Paradise Lost's Nick Holmes stepping in to replace the departed Mikael Åkerfeldt.

    Golden Tickets EP (Bend In Cover) (On Sale)

    Describing an act called Apogee that he performed in before forming WHY?, Yoni Wolf says,I always liked to inict a moment in the spotlight on members of the audience--not voluntary or involuntary, but just regardless of the individual's preference--to frame them in this temporary bubble of fame. Words to that eect.


    This thematic inclination towards breaking the fourth wall and incorporating the audience into the performance manifested in a novel format: WHY started writing theme songs for their fans. These songs were called Golden Tickets and together they make up the Golden Tickets EP.


    The concept, Yoni explained, was that, We would write a theme song for one customer who came to the [WHY?] web store and bought something every month. Like Mighty Mouse. It would be a song about that person. We'd read all about them on Facebook and Twitter, and sometimes even go so far as to contact their signicant other to ask them questions. Then I
    would write the song on piano, and my brother would take the skeleton of lyrics & piano and turn it into a fully realized arrangement.


    They did a Golden Ticket song to raise money for victims of the Tsunami in Japan. They did a Golden Ticket contest to benet victims of tornado devastation in the South. They sold Golden Tickets on eBay. They did an iconography contest, and gave a Golden Ticket to the winner. They did a video contest and awarded a Golden Ticket to a man who didn't even attempt to do anything sensible or interesting in any way, but merely submitted footage of his shirtless & dreaded self mouthing a wordless monologue into the silence stipulated in the rules of the contest.


    All the Golden Ticket songs are now collected here, in the Golden Tickets EP.
