    Try Me

    Your favorite band's favorite band, Self Defense Family enjoys a distinct renown within the punk community. Well-respected and critically lauded but difficult and idiosyncratic, the band has done things their way almost to a fault. Eschewing sing-alongs and easy anthems in favor of personal lyrics, they stand apart from their contemporaries in punk and hardcore. Their strangely tense guitar-work framed within otherwise hook laden songs lends the band an unmistakable sound. Opting to be heavy in emotion rather than heavy in sound.


    Led by vocalist, lyricist, and personality Patrick Kindlon, Self Defense Family have extended their branches to organically include touring and session musicians. Allowing them to evolve into a musical collective with more than ten active members at any given time. Interestingly enough, no member of the assemblage has played every show or played on every recording by the collective.


    Try Me is Self Defense Family's latest full length offering.

    Try It

    The Standells' key albums for the Tower label (Dirty Water, Why Pick On Me, and Try It) perfectly bottled a rebellious wave of sound sweeping across Mid-1960's teen clubs, radio playlists and record racks. Starting with the genre-defining, proto-punk smash "Dirty Water", through a series of equally memorable underdog anthems ("Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White," "Why Pick on Me") and obscenities (the banned "Try It"), the Standells left an indelible mark on their era. Those three Tower albums are a veritable feast of three chord, fuzz-drenched, Vox Organ-driven "squares"-repellant.


    Built around the banned title track, Try It is a tale of two (LP) sides; one a cohesive step into super-charged '67 Standells Soul, the other a bet-hedging exercise that compiles possibly the strongest material of the band's career. Latter includes the classic Standells style, either at its most pulverizing ("Barracuda," "Riot on Sunset Strip") or now one foot into psychedelia ("All Fall Down," "Did You Ever Have That Feeling"). It provides the perfect bookend to the Standells' legendary Tower Records era albums.

    Mama Tried

    One of Merle Haggard's finest recordings, 1968's Mama Tried is comprised of a number of strong originals and several excellent covers. While Mama Tried, I'll Always Know and You'll Never Love Me Now all happen to be some of Haggard's most solid original offerings, it's his gritty and honest interpretations of songs like Little Ole Wine Drinker Me, In the Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad), Teach Me to Forget, Run 'Em Off and Too Many Bridges to Cross Over that help distinguish Mama Tried as perhaps the most quintessential Bakersfield-Sound album ever recorded.

    Why Pick On Me

    The Standells' key albums for the Tower label (Dirty Water, Why Pick On Me, and Try It) perfectly bottled a rebellious wave of sound sweeping across Mid-1960's teen clubs, radio playlists and record racks. Starting with the genre-defining, proto-punk smash "Dirty Water", through a series of equally memorable underdog anthems ("Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White," "Why Pick on Me") and obscenities (the banned "Try It"), the Standells left an indelible mark on their era. Those three Tower albums are a veritable feast of three chord, fuzz-drenched, Vox Organ-driven "squares"-repellant.


    For their second Tower album, Why Pick On Me, the Standells received a significant sonic boost with the move to American Recording Company. Legendary engineer Richie Podolor cut the best sounding records of the era; from the Standells, Chocolate Watchband, and Electric Prunes to Steppenwolf and Three Dog Night. The drum tracks on this album are simply not to be believed, the bass drum sound possibly registering on the Richter scale. Here the Standells build on their strengths with tough originals from producer Ed Cobb, equally-hard driving outside material ("Black Hearted Woman," "Mainline"), and notably, the emergence of Larry Tamblyn as a songwriter (his "Mr. Nobody" arguably the album's highlight).

    Check Me Out

    A sterling effort from one of James Brown's most talented finds. Wearing the producer's hat, Brown showcases the Female Preacher on songs and styles from standards to funk to Southern and Philly soul. On the funk tip you have Rock Me Again & Again & Again & Again and How Long Can I Keep It Up. Collins injects soul and sweat into the standards A Foggy Day and Try a Little Tenderness; shows her southern roots on Put It on the Line; and pays homage to the sound of Philadelphia on a quality remake of Back Stabbers and a dramatic five-minute-plus rendition of If You Don't Know Me by Now.

    Come Pick Me Up

    In March of 1999, Superchunk traveled to Electrical Audio
    Studios in Chicago to record the tracks that would become
    Come Pick Me Up. The addition of producer Jim O'Rourke
    allowed Superchunk to advance their sound with more
    experimentation, including horn and string
    accompaniments. Ken Vandermark, Jeb Bishop, and Bob
    Weston provided the horn section (saxophone, trombone,
    and trumpet, respectively) while Fred Longberg-Holm and
    Suzanne Roberts contributed on cello and violin.


    "It was exciting to work in the big room downstairs at
    Electrical. For part of our visit we also slept there, in the
    dark except for lights on all the gear blinking. It snowed a
    ton the day we got there, and I didn't go outside for the first
    five or six days we were there," Mac recalls. "I read an
    interview where O'Rourke said we tried to make a twomonth
    record in two weeks or something. I'm sure he's
    right-we never wanted to spend the time or money making
    records the 'proper' way, but I like how this record came
    out, and it has some of my favorite songs of ours on it."

    Cover Me (Remixes) (Pre-Order)

    Dave Gahan wrote the song together with Peter Gordeno and Christian Eigner. Depeche Mode have said in interviews (like during the 2016 press conference) that producer James Ford taught himself to play Martin's pedal steel guitar within one day while in the studio, and thus this guitar was used in some songs including 'Cover Me'.


    Dave talked about this song extensively to Phil Marriott:


    I wanted ['Cover Me'] to be very cinematic, and I had this sort of idea of us finally destroying this beautiful planet that we live on. Hence the northern lights: it's just one in many millions of beautiful things... the oceans, just things that we take for granted. And the Northern lights was just a metaphor that I wanted to use, because I did once experience actually being there while that was happening, way up north in Scandinavia. Yeah [it's quite an emotional experience], and it's also out of the world somehow, quite spiritual, and moving, moving to the point of tears, the beauty of something happening in our universe. And so I had this idea at that time, a little lyrical idea, not really a melody. But anyway, I came back to that, and that became that song. And I also saw the song in two halves, where the second half was where we are finally leaving or something. This person or whoever it is, who I live vicariously through, leaves the planet, only to find another planet that is exactly the same as ours, and he has this horrible feeling of like, Oh wow, it's not the planet, it's me, I am doing this. I'm destroying this beautiful world that I live in. And that can be just an emotional relationship that you have with another person, or trying to be having a relationship with another person that you can't quite get to because you just can't. And that, for me, is quite often where I find myself with music and songs: I am quite often this other person. Of course it's me, but I can live vicariously through this performer, this guy that I've created, which is me, but a character. And throughout songs and films and books and stuff like that, that's where I get lost. [...] With 'Cover Me', the song that was coming to mind a lot, the feeling of the song that I wanted to get on this, and it's a totally different kind of song, but the feeling that I wanted to get was like Bowie's song 'Life On Mars', where the second half of the song seems to go to another place, or 'Space Odyssey', that kind of feeling. It opens up for you, the listener, to just be able to go off in their own dreams and ideas.

    Can't Get Past The Lips

    Harkening back to punk rock's garage glory days of the 70s and early 80's, Oklahoma outfit Broncho captures the aggression, DIY authenticity and youthful exhilaration of a bygone era and then drags it by the hair into the Here and Now, creating a fresh sound that's unlike anything being played today.


    Perhaps the best debut album of 2011 came by way of BRONCHO, a garage-punk quartet from Norman, Okla. Frontman Ryan Lindsey is better known as the keyboardist for the Starlight Mints, but this side project has been touring the Midwest since early 2010. Can't Get Past the Lips hit stores this August, and Try Me Out Sometime was an instant standout. It's not a complex song, by any means, and the simplicity is fantastic because the execution is so strong. Three chords are plenty enough backdrop for Lindsey to yelp out the hooks. Watch the excellent music video, in which the band barges into unsuspecting, unlikely venues - stores, major intersections, a college classroom - and performs increasingly disastrous versions of the song before darting out. BRONCHO has never played a show outside a narrow corridor from Austin to Chicago, so coast-dwellers will have to cross their fingers for that to change soon. -NPR

    Get On Up - The James Brown Story - Soundtrack

    "The Godfather of Soul." "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business." "Mr. Dynamite." "Soul Brother Number One." For more than 50 years, these and
    other honorifics have described American music icon James Brown.


    GET ON UP: The James Brown Story - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features studio and standout live versions of many of Brown's top soul/funk
    hits-from his first, 1956's "Please Please Please" to "Out Of Sight," "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Try Me," "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag," "It's A Man's
    Man's Man's World," and "Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine." Also included are two previously unreleased concert recordings heard in the new
    film that is in theaters nationwide on August 1. These live, spine-tingling performances of "Please Please Please" and "It's A Man's Man's Man's World"
    were recorded at the historic Fort Homer W. Hesterly Armory in Tampa, Florida on April 23, 1966.


    In 1986, James Brown was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a charter member. A multiple GRAMMY® Award winner, Brown was honored
    with the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1992, and in 2003 he received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. Brown died on
    Christmas Day 2006 at the age of 73.

    Coma Ecliptic

    Grandiose, dynamic, heavy, melodic, technically challenging: these are all words that fall equally short when trying to describe Between the Buried and Me's sonic offerings. When tasked with explaining the band's previous effort, The Parallax II: Future Sequence, Decibel Magazine claimed that the album offers more substance than most bands put forth in entire careers and Metal Hammer simply stated that it was utterly captivating. Where does a burgeoning progressive act go from there? The answer is found in their seventh full-length album, Coma Ecliptic. Spanning just over an hour, the album stands as a significant step in the evolution for the group as a whole, as well as the individual musicians: vocalist / keyboardist Tommy Rogers, guitarists Paul Waggoner and Dustie Waring, bassist Dan Briggs, and drummer Blake Richardson.


    Tommy Rogers posits: Coma Ecliptic is a new life for BTBAM. Throughout the process we worked harder than we ever have and really pushed the BTBAM sound to a new identity. In a world of repetition, I'm very proud to be a part of something that is extremely rewarding, as well as frightening. When you don't push yourself you will never know what the outcome is. The outcome is Coma Ecliptic.


    What is Coma Ecliptic? It can be interpreted as a modern rock opera, and another ambitious concept album from a band that has completely mastered that format. Dan Briggs comments: Spending the last year immersed in a world of Quadrophenia, Operation Mindcrime, The Wall- as well as Sondheim and Lloyd Webber musicals, Stravinsky and Mussorgsky symphonic suites; writing an over the top, dramatic and forward thinking rock opera was the most natural thing to do. The story follows the wanderings of an unidentified man, stuck in a coma, as he journeys through his past lives. Each song is its own episode in a modern day, sort of The Twilight Zone-esque fashion. The unidentified man enters each world and is offered a choice: stay, or move on to the next in search of something better, something more perfect. The man does find his ideal life, but then is offered the ultimate choice of life or death. He chooses life and wakes up to his own actual reality. It's at that moment he realizes that he had been in a coma - everything that happened had been dreams and false memories. After awakening, we find the man outside finally experiencing reality, and he sees what he has been missing: the world is beautiful, the air is fresh, and the people appear to be happy, and then he falls over dead. The take away from this is to make the best of your life. People are constantly searching for something better without taking the time to appreciate the things they have. What we need may already be here, and is hopefully real. We may all be in a coma in another life.


    Musically, Coma Ecliptic boasts a series of emotive peaks and valleys that drive the narrative along with the lyrics. Tracks such as Memory Palace, while sounding wholly unique, clearly have a distinct BTBAM flavor to which fans have grown so attached. The Coma Machine brings to mind prog in the most classic sense; think YES and King Crimson passages with the added layer of modern metal heaviness. Dim Ignition highlights Rogers' continuing development as a keyboardist, but don't fret, there's still plenty of speed, technically challenging guitar, bass, and drum runs, and quirkiness throughout. What makes these parts work is the interplay of the heavy and technical with the simpler, almost cinematic, soft passages; that is the power of Coma Ecliptic. The listening experience is a journey, and when Life in Velvet brings the album to a sudden, triumphant end, fans will surely be reaching for the replay button. But what does the band think? Rogers adds: If you asked me what this record sounds like, I would tell you BTBAM. With every listen I still find new exciting moments that each member has put into these songs. After all these years we still push each other to try new things and push our individual skills to the next level. It is an absolute thrill to write with such an inspiring group of people. Briggs continues: Writing with a focus on storytelling and just crushing melodic themes set the tone early on before we were even in the rehearsal room together. Put your velvet capes on and get ready for a journey!

    Dirty Water

    The Standells' key albums for the Tower label (Dirty Water, Why Pick On Me, and Try It) perfectly bottled a rebellious wave of sound sweeping across Mid-1960's teen clubs, radio playlists and record racks. Starting with the genre-defining, proto-punk smash "Dirty Water", through a series of equally memorable underdog anthems ("Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White," "Why Pick on Me") and obscenities (the banned "Try It"), the Standells left an indelible mark on their era. Those three Tower albums are a veritable feast of three chord, fuzz-drenched, Vox Organ-driven "squares"-repellant.


    The Standells' Dirty Water album, their first for Tower Records, was primarily recorded away from their Hollywood home base. Producer Ed Cobb picked a Seattle studio and engineer Kearney Barton (the Sonics), unwittingly unleashing the savage Pacific Northwest Sound on the rest of the country. As Standells founding member Larry Tamblyn tells it, "It really was the Standells raw." The results include crushing classics like "Little Sally Tease," "Medication," and "Why Did You Hurt Me."

    Cass County

    Inspired by the country music that soundtracked Henley's early days in east Texas, Cass County finds him harmonizing with Miranda Lambert, trading verses with Martina McBride and duetting with Merle Haggard.


    I'm associated with California a lot because of that other band that I play in, but I really and truly was born and raised in Cass County, Texas, Henley said last month during a private listening party in Nashville. I'm a Southerner and a Texan. I have ancestors in Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia. So this is a natural progression for me. It's not me trying to do the 'Don Henley country album.' It's who I am and where I come from.

    Calling it Adrian Thaws is saying you don't really know me," says Tricky, explaining the title of his 11th album. "So many times people have tried to put a finger on me and every album I go to a different place." "I suppose this is my club/hip hop album," he says. "I've only heard my music a few times in a club but I grew up in clubs from when I was 14: blues parties, hip hop clubs, a few raves. I'm not known for doing club music but this album has some club tracks on it - well, what I would consider club music."

    I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama

    Sourced from the Original Masters, on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl with Jacket Meticulously Recreated from the Original Art


    Janis Joplin decided to make a sharp turn after Cheap Thrills, and abandoned her previous band Big Brother And The Holding Company. Her new band, the Kozmic Blues Band provided a tighter, more soulful approach to the blues rock 'Big Brother' is known for. By going solo, Joplin made a crucial point: she's got soul for miles on end.


    Featuring a horn section and a stronger emphasis on organ, I Got Them Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! yielded soul burners Try (Just A Little Bit Harder), Work Me Lord and As Good As You've Been To This World, as well as slower tracks like Maybe and Kozmic Blues. Hearing is believing!

    Limited repressing of a long lost Killjoys mini album which originally came out on DG back in 1991, this time it's on red, white and blue vinyl! Before Kevin Rowland launched Dexys Midnight Runners he was the lead singer in this great punk band from the Midlands. Classic amphetamine punk. They were supposed to be making tapes for an album but they split before anything happened and a supposed deal with Bronze was scuppered by Mr Rowland. Around mid 77 they lost Heather and Joe 90 (on Kevin's insistence probably) and acquired a new drummer, Bob Peach, and guitarist Keith Rimell and became virtually a different band as Mr Rowland again sought to jump ship.. And lastly from Rowland himself these words from Mojo October 2001. "There was no doubt in my mind that I was at least as passionate and angry and as from the street as any punk rock singer you could name. But it was wrong for me to try to be part of someone else's thing."

    You're Not As As You Think

    Pressed On Colored Vinyl


    SORORITY NOISE write important songs. They go to uncomfortable places, unafraid to let the darkness in - but they're also not shy at kicking back until the sorrow subsides. They're songs of confusion, anger, life, death, mental health and, most importantly, hope. They're what it means to be human.


    That vulnerability has been Sorority Noise's hallmark since they formed in 2013, but it's never been as precise as it is on YOU'RE NOT AS ___ AS YOU THINK, their third album. The album follows the Connecticut-based quartet's IT KINDLY STOPPED FOR ME 7" (2016), critically acclaimed JOY, DEPARTED (2015) and debut FORGETTABLE (2014) and is the most collaborative, fully realized version of Sorority Noise to date.

    Iceberg/Freedom Of Speech

    The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech... Just Watch What You Say! is the third studio album by infamous rapper Ice-T, released in 1989. The album has an uncharacteristically gritty sound, featuring some of the darkest musical tracks that Ice-T ever released.


    The album was released after Ice-T was encountering censorship problems on tour. The album's cover, featuring a B-boy with a shotgun shoved in his mouth, and two pistols pressed against each side of his head, reflected Ice-T's experiences with the concept of freedom of speech.


    This album is arguably the closest hip-hop has come to George Orwell's 1984. Instead of focusing heavily on gangsta rap, Ice-T made First Amendment issues the album's dominant theme. Setting the album's tone is the opener, Shut Up, Be Happy, featuring Dead Kennedy's Jello Biafra. There are a few examples of first-rate gangsta rap here - including The Hunted Child and the chilling Peel Their Caps Back as well as some humoristic raps on My Word Is Bond and The Girl Tried to Kill Me.

    Legendary Debut Album


    Featuring The Hit Singles Nappy Heads, Vocab, And Boof Baf


    Blunted On Reality is the 1994 debut album by Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill and Pras Michel, collectively known as The Fugees. The album contains less political lyrics than their second album The Score, but there definitively were political intentions.


    As Wyclef Jean described the meaning of the title in an interview: When the cop is messing around with somebody for something that the person didn't do and they try to set 'em up, that makes me blunted on reality. When the government is taking money on arms and that money could be going back to the community it makes me blunted on reality. It's just awareness of what's going on that's what blunted on reality means


    The album spawned 3 singles; Nappy Heads, Vocab and Boof Baf and started selling big quantities, eventually reaching gold and platinum status, after the release of their critically acclaimed album The Score in 1996.

    Stick Together

    A work years in the making, Stick Together's debut full-length proves to be well worth the wait. The Wilkes-Barre band pummels through twelve furious anthems recalling the intensity of hardcore classics like Youth of Today's Break Down The Walls and Straight Ahead's Breakaway with a modern attitude. The production by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Inquisition) brings out the best parts of Stick Together on every song, whether it be the raw and unhinged chaos of "Society's Rule" or the groovy, bass driven "Nothing To Me."

    Spring And Fall

    This Vinyl Edition of the Album is Pressed on Beautiful 180 Gram Vinyl

    Gatefold Sleeve with Full Size 12" Booklet.


    Recorded in Gippsland, country Victoria with J. Walker (Machine Translations) - comes Australian National Treasure - Paul Kelly's long awaited first album in 5 years. Some of the guest musicians on the album include Dan Kelly, Pete and Dan Luscombe, Vika & Linda Bull and Laura Jean.


    The concept of the album is best described by Paul himself: Spring And Fall is a song cycle. It's been five years since I made a record and perhaps the experience of writing a book during that time made me attuned to the idea of developing a close knit structure for the next thing I did. I knew I didn't just want to put out a collection of songs loosely related to each other.


    Also, noticing that people are listening to music more and more now in a grazing kind of way - picking a song here and a song there - spurred me on to try and make a record that would take a stand on behalf of the Album. I'm a music grazer with the best of them but there is still a deep satisfaction in encountering a set of songs that unfolds from start to finish and demands to be heard in its entirety. So Spring And Fall has an arc suggested by its title. There are multiple viewpoints with links from song to song. Each song contains the seed of the song that follows. They are all love songs and the album is a love story.

    Rockius Of Levitatum

    To fully understand and appreciate a band like the 13th Floor Elevators, one had to see them play live, preferably more than once. The reason being that no two Elevators shows were ever alike, ranging from brilliantly euphoric to unbelievably catastrophic. Of course, the unevenness of their performances was due to one small but powerful thing called LSD which the band took in copious amounts prior to each show.


    This collection of live tracks gives those of us who weren't there during those halcyon days of psychedelia, a taste of just what lofty heights (and hellish depths) the Elevators were capable of reaching. The performances are taken from three sources: Roller Coaster, You're Gonna Miss Me and Tried to Hide from a rockin' appearance on a local Dallas/Ft. Worth television show in the spring of 1966; Don't Fall Down, Kingdom Of Heaven, She Lives In A Time of Her Own and I've Got Levitation from a notoriously shambolic gig in Houston in 1967; and the remaining eight tracks from a series of stellar performances at San Francisco's Avalon Ballroom in autumn of 1966.

    Wounded Masculinity

    In the tradition of Neil Young's 'please kick me off the label' era, or when Lou Reed tried to drive his audience away, Self Defense Family delivers brilliantly difficult listens on the new 12 EP Wounded Masculinity.

    Family member Mary Brulatour takes the songwriting reigns on four tracks that range from sullen folk to anxious kraut. The result is material unique even in Self Defense Family's varied (and sprawling) catalog.

    It's a ripper that'll make you tear up. Experience the pineapple pizza of the emotional spectrum.

    The Truth About Love

    P!nk has teamed up with producer Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foster The People & The Shins) for the very first time on this release along with long time collaborators Max Martin and Shellback, Billy Mann and Butch Walker. She has also worked with songwriter/producer Dan Wilson (Adele's Someone Like You). The album is P!nk's unique take on the different shades of love the dark, the light, the happy and the sad.

In addition, 15 of P!nk s singles have reached #1 in at least 1 or more countries. She is the recipient of 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards, 5 MTV Video Music Awards, 2 MTV Europe Awards, 2 People s Choice Awards, and many more. P!nk s last studio album Funhouse debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #1 in the UK, Australia, Netherlands, New Zealand and Switzerland. The album produced the smash single So What, which marked P!nk's 2nd #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 (after Lady Marmalade ). Her latest album, Greatest Hits So Far... debuted in the Top 10 in over 13 countries and spawned the hit singles, F**ckin Perfect which reach # 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Raise Your Glass which marked P!nk's 3rd #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
