Head Over Heels (Talamanca System Remix)

    THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2018 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

    As per the previous PR for the Talamanca System Tribal Persuasion mix, part of the true spirit of Balearic/Ibiza has always been slightly left field pop - Prefab Sprout, It’s Immaterial, Talk Talk and of course TFF, so TFF are always held in high regard by the Balearic brigade and this song (Head over Heels) in particular. Whilst a slightly daunting prospect to remix, across the 4 remixes (two by Talamanca and two by Mark Barrott) the aim was to capture the original spirit of Ibiza across it’s different moods, from the dance floor to Sunset via the early poly-rhythms of Underworld, the dramatic majesty of Padilla’s Cafe Del Mar and the dubbed out vibe’s of Larry Heard inspired slo mo house.Whilst these are to be enjoyed by all, in many ways their natural home is on vinyl, as they capture that original spirit and re-frame it in a modern context, taking the atmosphere of the original track and intertwining it with all the aforementioned elements of Ibiza’s musical heritage. Packaging will be black in colour. 

    Television Personalities

    Closer To God

      THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2018 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

      ‘Closer To God’, as with all TVP albums, is mightily personal. Dan Treacy provides the antidote to the opening of the ill-fated Disneyland Paris and the first McDonald’s in China – it’s a white knuckle ride through his innermost hopes and fears with off stage giggling, half heard dialogue and feedback that sounds like an opera is expiring in an adjoining L-shaped room. ‘Closer To God’ is a spiritual rollercoaster that sounds as poignant and pressing as ever. Remastered double LP on limited edition on marbled black and white vinyl. 1500 copies.

      The Waterfront

      Normandy ( On A Beach ) / When The Wind Blows

        THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2018 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

        The Waterfront were a short lived Manchester supergroup from the early 80's. The band consisted of 3 original members of The Stone Roses. Andy Couzens ( Guitar ) Gary Mounfield ( bass ) John Squire ( Guitar ). The drummer was Chris Goodwin ( The High ) and David ' Kaiser' Carty on vocals. Although the band never played a gig they did record 2 tracks in a small studio in 1983. Only a handful of cassette tapes ever existed among friends of the band. Andy Couzens owns the original _ inch reel to reel tape and has kindly offered the recordings for a special release to raise money for The Christie in Manchester. Andy and John later formed The Stone Roses with Mani joining years later. Chris ended up in numerous bands before having success with Andy in The High. Kaiser chose a different path and went to serve for Queen and Country. The Rest is History.

            The Durutti Column

            Obey The Time

              THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2019 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

              Factory Benelux presents an expanded double vinyl edition of Obey the Time, the eighth studio album by Manchester ensemble The Durutti Column. Originally released by Factory Records in 1990, just 800 copies have been pressed in coloured vinyl (purple and yellow) for Record Store Day on 13 April 2019. (NON-RETURNABLE)Largely self-produced, Obey the Time saw DC mainman Vini Reilly further develop his interest in electronic music, and even embrace house and techno stylings. “The title came screaming off the TV screen in somebody’s version of Othello and captured exactly the feel of the work in progress,” explained Tony Wilson, Durutti manager and Factory founder. “We were in the middle of the Aceeed explosion. If you lived in Manchester, you were absolutely in the middle of it. Vini even explained why house made keyboards sound so fresh. Something to do with a chord being played with 3 or 4 notes into the sampler, but then different chords being triggered by a single key stroke. Creating mathematical harmonic relationships ‘which Schoenberg had searched for but never found.’”Indeed veteran Durutti percussionist Bruce Mitchell features on just one track, Art and Freight. Meanwhile dance exploration Contra-Indications was taped with New Order programmer (and later co-manager) Andy Robinson. Released in December 1990, Obey the Time would be the last Durutti Column album on Factory before the labelled collapsed beneath a mountain of debt.Disc 2 features extracts from a previously unreleased live performance at Manchester University Whitworth Hall on 23 June 1990 (opportunistically billed as ‘The Acid Guitar’), on which Reilly and Mitchell are joined by guests Andy Connell, Liu Sola and Rob Gray.The remastered vinyl set is housed in a striking gatefold sleeve by 8vo printed in pantone colours on white matt board.

                The Story So Far

                  THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2019 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

                  SEMINAL 1980 POST PUNK UK TREASURE. LIMITED 180GRM VINYL FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTERS + LYRIC SHEETS ON INNER SLEEVE + DIE-CUT A4 STICKER. INCLUDES PAINT IT BLACK, WHITE MOUSE DISCO & KRAY TWINS - Originally released in 1980 on Deram Records (a division of Decca), this is the first time this seminal UK post-punk album has been reissued on vinyl. The Mo-dettes were an all-female band, formed in 1979 by guitarist Kate Korris (The Slits), Jane Crockford (Bank of Dresden), Ramona Carlier (Kleenex) and June Miles-Kingston. They were in the heart of the late 70s London art, film & punk scene with some of the members assisting Malcolm McLaren on the set of the film, The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle, as well as living in a community squat with Joe Strummer and Sid Vicious. Their branding was eye catching too, perhaps helping to pull in a wider audience, or it could have been influenced by some of the band members’ art backgrounds too. The album features a version of The Rolling Stones’ Paint It Black, a remake of their debut single White Mice (renamed White Mice Disco), plus a cover of Edith Piaf’s Milord, along with other original penned songs.The band toured for four years and they supported two-tone ska bands such as Madness and The Specials before breaking up finally in 1982. When the members went their separate ways, many continued to work and be associated with artists such as Fun Boy Three, Everything But The Girl, and The Communards, a.o.

                                                                          Let's talk about denial.Let's talk about self-awareness.Let's talk about romantic idealism.And let's talk about pop music.Let's talk about Terry Hall and his strange relationship with all of these things: about his ability to create life-affirming pop music and about the fact that his exceptional gift was recognised by a long line of his peers before, finally, Terry Hall could no longer ignore it either.Let's talk about the album where the penny finally dropped.A record which believes in the dream of perfect love despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.Let's talk about 'Home', the first solo album by Terry Hall. Twenty-six years have elapsed since the original release of 'Home', but this Record Store Day sees its long overdue debut on vinyl.It might have been the first album which saw Hall step forward from a group identity, but 'Home' was Hall's ninth in various guises since the emergence of The Specials' self-titled LP in 1979.It had taken Hall a while to find his feet as a songwriter.With Jerry Dammers so prolific in that regard, Hall found himself in a strange position at the end of that group's collective lifetime.The Specials had made him a pop star, but he didn't feel like one.By the release of Fun Boy Three's second album 'Missing' (1983), the competition was Wham!, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Culture Club.Nothing wrong with any of those, but Hall would see himself staring back from the pages of a magazine alongside all the aforementioned names and experience what he called "a total cognitive disconnection". 'Home', then, was the culmination of a long process which saw Terry Hall separate his lack of love for the job of pop star from his adoration for pop itself.In solving that conundrum, it sounds like a weight has been lifted from Hall.Like a code has finally been cracked.Somehow emblematic of that process is the album's lead single 'Forever J', a song that Hall had started writing about his wife Jeannette almost a decade previously, but only finally came together when Hall presented it to the album's producer Ian Broudie (The Lightning Seeds) as the sessions got under way.Alloyed to a disarmingly beautiful chorus, this ticker-tape flurry of unguarded intimacies might just be the most perfect pop song of an era that wasn't exactly lacking in competition ñ and although it didn't crack the top 40 at the time, it cemented the affection in which an emerging generation of proficient popsmiths held him: Jarvis Cocker did his own remix of the song and Damon Albarn sang Hall's praises at every opportunity.In commencing the record, 'Forever J' sets the tone for what follows on the remainder of 'Home'.Yes, it's a solo album, but the engine of these performances is a stellar "house" band comprised of Craig Gannon (The Smiths, Aztec Camera, The Bluebells), Les Pattinson (Echo & The Bunnymen) and Chris Sharrock (The Icicle Works, The La's). This illustrious roll call is one that extends to the songwriters with whom Hall collaborated on the record.Co-written by Nick Heyward, 'What's Wrong With Joy' is a synergy of seeming incompatible components: its life-affirming power pop livery freighting a cargo of self-doubt ("I've got a bag full of promises I can't keep/And a hundred reasons why I don't sleep") and good intentions ("All I wanna do is make your dreams come true") to the affections of anyone who hears it.Andy Partridge steps forward to share the credit on 'Moon On Your Dress" and 'I Drew A Lemon': the latter a rebuke to the man who will never love her the way our lyrical protagonist pledges to; the former a longtime favourite among fans of both Hall and XTC for the sanguine self-deprecations that manage to captures something of both artists' relationship to the world around them. And, of course, if you have Ian Broudie manning the console, it would be obtuse not to write a song or two together.With a friendship dating back to the early days of The Specials (the young Broudie saw Hall's pre-Specials outfit The Coventry Automatics open for The Clash in 1978) the measure of the pair's chemistry stretches beyond Broudie's production role to encompass two of the album's indisputable highlights.Featuring the unforgettable couplet, "If ifs and ands were pots and pans, you'd be a kitchen", 'You' sees its protagonist trying to persuade his subject to see in him what he sees in her.The other Broudie co-write on 'Home' will need no introduction to most pop fans.'Sense' is the song which gave its name to The Lightning Seeds' second album, giving the group their third top 40 hit in 1992.The version sung here by Hall though benefits from the Sharrock's pugnacious Keith Moon-isms and, of course, the buccaneering fretboard work of Craig Gannon. It's Gannon, too, whose fingerprints can be found on a clutch of other songs which give a little more back with each repeated play.'Home' may have emerged in the era that saw the term 'Britpop' enter the cultural lexicon, but there's a fragrant melodic classicism at the heart of Gannon and Hall's collaborations that can also be found in the work of Hall's "other" 80s songwriting vehicle The Colour Field, with its nods to French chanson.It's there on 'Forever J' and it's also abundant on Hall/Gannon originals like 'No No No' and 'I Don't Got You'. And yet, for all of that, there's something about Hall's voice that is, to quote the latter song, "as English as the weather".You can hear it all over 'Home', and it works both to the advantage of this album and the listener.Like the expression of the man staring at you on the sleeve, there's an outward sense of reserve in these performances which belies the lyrical tensions hinted at in many of its songs.Hall's marriage was coming to an end when 'Home' was recorded, but these songs are manifestly the work of someone who still believes in happy ever after.Just about.They're also the work of someone who has come to an accommodation with his relationship to pop.To coin a neologism, you might say that this was the record where our hero finally learned to "own it".And if your love of great pop mirrors that of Terry Hall, 'Home' is a record you might also consider owning.

They have certainly done their 10,000 hours.Starting in the pubs and working mens clubs of Lancashire (including the legendary Pheonix Nights) this fab foursome have truly grafted and reaped the rewards with support slots for the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen, Madness, Larkins, The Libertines, Circa Waves, Sleeper, Cassia, Paul Heaton, Tom Odell and even, after a stormingly successful Glastonbury debut in June, Sir Tom Jones on his recent stadium tour ('I loved your set, especially the a cappella, you don't half get the audience going' - Tom Jones.) All of this has resulted in a live show that is completely nailed down, filled to brim with passion, personality and most importantly, banging tunes! Lead singer Thom Rylance is never happier than when entertaining a crowd, whether their own or someone else's, and this summer Thom, Kate, Rob and Joe are winning over new fans young and old, and gladdening the hearts of festival audiences all over the UK and Europe.So driven, so engaging, so smashing at promo and so spectacularly compelling on stage.By the end of any gig they become the audience's favourite new band, if you want proof of that, scroll down any of their socials! The band will be releasing their debue album on 13th March 2020 via Modern Sky whitch will include the singles Hawaii, Little Things and 21. Sometimes life can be laborious.Sometimes it's hard to think and hard to be, but I honestly believe the cure for mundanity and sadness of everyday life is love.We drew influence from our musical mothers and fathers and tried to create something exciting.

This time this limited RSD edition features (in typical eggs style) a cheeky and irreverant special reflective mirrored "moron" cover, posing the question: Who is moron? Could it be you?? 1000 copies only. Designed by TLE and Casey Raymond. Following on from their 2018 RSD release of "This is Eggland" on giant fried egg vinyl which sold out instantly, TLE return with another unique creation for RSD 2020! Cooking up another special release with collaborator Casey Raymond the band will release a very special edition of their new album "I am Moron" in a special reflective collectible cover on neon pink vinyl. ìI am Moronî is the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2017 album ìThis is Egglandî. It is their second album co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) and continues their journey through Eggland into the unknown. Throughout their 13 year career, TLE have embraced isolation. Both metaphorically and geographically the married couple have chosen to shun the social conventions of normal life and dedicated their band and their life to the pursuit of what feels right. Operating out of their hometown of Lancaster TLE are lonely pioneers and self confessed kings of idiocy. Working in an industry whose currency is money, success and nepotism, TLE want none of it. They call out everything fake and plastic about the music industry and demand you to re-evaluate on their terms. Theyíre undoubtedly the most real band in Britain, operating in a world when true authenticity is hard to find. They have also spent more time on hold to the Working Tax credit hotline than any other band on the planet. ìI Am Moronî was self recorded by the band in Lancaster (ìThe Twin Peaks of Northern Englandî) between Lancaster Musicians Co-op and their home. During the recording, Lancaster Musicians Co-op was threatened with closure so the band put their album on hold to fight the eviction. Continuing the heaviness of ì This is Egglandî ìI am Moronî brings more depth to their sound bringing with it a mix of heavy psych, pop and strangeness. Some songs flicker between an earthly realism and the otherworldly loneliness of a one way space mission. While in contrast, Insect Repellent launches a gonzo-style attack against the middle classes and Bearpit questions the essence of working class freedom. With no booking agent, manager, record label or publisher TLE are truly independent. And support for them is snowballing. They are selling out bigger and bigger venues and more eggheads are joining them in their crusade against bullshit. TLE say it how it is. Theyíve never been afraid to swim against the current and now theyíve got an army of fans behind them. Don't miss out on the most collectible record of the year! Tracks: 1. Long Stem Carnations 2. You Can Go Now 3. This Decision 4. You've Got The Ball 5. Bear Pit 6. I Wanna 7. 24 Eyes 8. The Mothership 9. Insect Repellent 10. The Digital Hair 11. Still Second Rate 12. New Dawn

Perhaps you too will be thinking similar things as you listen and reflect upon your own personal journey, especially if this record soundtracked your life all those years gone by....If you are listening to this for the very first time, may I introduce you to... The Magic Numbers Two families. The Stodart's & The Gannon's. We wanted to create music that was timeless. We wanted to create a band that you could believe in. We wanted to break your heart whilst lifting your spirit. We wanted to make a classic debut album. In 2004 The Magic Numbers were playing live almost every other night around London, making friends that soon grew into a following that spread the word the old school way, by word of mouth.People telling people about this new group comprising of two sets of brothers and sisters, who were singing a kind of country-soul-pop music with three part harmonies.From the outside things seemed to be happening very quickly, but I'd been writing songs and playing empty venues with our drummer Sean for 10 years before this momentum started building, and for us it really was always just a matter of time...but it sure took it's sweet time.Honestly though, it was only when our sisters Michele & Angela brought their magic to the band did anyone start taking notice, as then we discovered a sound.There was an energy between us that was somewhat frenetic, it was powerful, we knew we had something special and unique and because of that it also made us very cautious and protective. Fifteen years ago it felt like we were on top of the world, capable of anything, full of promise, full of innocence but also full of anxiety, still recovering from loss and having nothing.We literally had nothing but each other and this music.So many dreams of ours started coming true, from selling out shows and hearing people sing along to our songs in the crowd, to being given the opportunity to go into the studio by Heavenly.The biggest dream was to make a record.Jeff Barrett & Martin Kelly's belief in the band and myself as a songwriter at that time really gave us that extra confidence and boost that I think every artist needs whether they'd like to admit it or not.So there we were, about to make this record. Going into the studio can be a very daunting experience for a band, especially when the only real experience you've ever had was some home recording with a 4 track.We chose to work with Craig Silvey because we loved him straight away as a person and felt like he understood what we wanted to achieve.He was amazing at putting us at ease and not having us react to that red light fever that sometimes creeps up on you.He wanted to stay true to what he'd seen us do live and just try and enhance that sonically as best as he could. We had a shared vision of not wanting there to be too many overdubs on the record, as the core elements between the four of us when we played live was already telling the story in the way we had arranged the songs.It's funny now to think that we ended up playing these huge festivals with literally a guitar tuner between us as we didn't want anything else to colour the sound of our guitars being plugged straight into our amplifiers. It's always the songs for me that make a great record and we had the songs. My sister Michele & I sat at our mum and dad's and said "Right let's write a song in D major" and I started pulsing on that opening chord and Michele's bass line took us on a journey like they always do, that melodic hooky driving thing that she does is key to what makes this music.We had so much fun writing 'Mornings Eleven' that I feel the spirit of that moment was captured in the song.We never really said it out loud to each other at the time but we both knew we were trying to write our very own 'Good Vibrations' We'd have never thought that it would be the opening song on our debut album. Some of the songs on this album just appeared fully formed.'This Love' in particular was written pretty soon after I had learnt of our grandmother's death in New York, I was heartbroken that I wasn't there for her in those last days especially as she had raised me as a little boy.I can clearly remember playing that opening triplet guitar figure and the words and melody just came pouring out like they were always there, the same thing with 'Which Way To Happy' I remember the feeling of playing catch up to what was coming out.Over the years I've learnt that it's a very rare thing, songs appearing fully formed like that, it still surprises me when they do arrive like a memory of some kind.'Love's A Game' felt like it had always existed, in fact for a very long time I would ask people "But does it remind you of anything?" I don't remember writing 'Forever Lost' at all.I remember playing it to the band and us rehearsing it, having fun with the arrangement but no recollection of writing it. So many songs came from such sad places, the end of a long term relationship, death in the family, feeling so lost and vulnerable, this yearning for something else, to be someone else but I guess unknowingly we disguised it with harmonies and hooks. 'Love Me Like You' was definitely one of those, no one spoke of the meaning of the song when I first played it, we all just dived straight in and started having fun with hooks and skips in the rhythm.It was the baby of the bunch, as it was only written a few months before we began recording, whereas 'Try' was probably the eldest of almost 2 years.Then there's the duet between Angie and myself 'I See You You See Me'.My mum and dad were arguing downstairs and I knew it would only be a matter of time before they would make up and laugh about how ridiculous they were both being.I based the song on that kind of love, one that sees through everything.Angela's voice on that still melts my heart. I'd bought a set of these glockenspiel tone bars from a charity shop in Hanwell one afternoon walking home from signing on at the job-centre and all the way back I was thinking about this much more tender arrangement of a song I'd written called 'Hymn For Her'.The climax of the song on the third chorus was originally how it was all throughout.I remember that day working on it with Michele and Angela as we were so excited about how it turned out we decided to play it live that night to a small few. There's so much love and hope and joy and honesty in this album.So much fun in the arrangements, so much youth and innocence in our voices.It encapsulates a very precious time within the four of our lives.I'm still our biggest fan. Fifteen years later. We're still wanting to create music that is timeless. We're still wanting to be a band that you can believe in. We're still wanting to break your heart whilst lifting your spirit. But we can't ever make that first album again, this is it, we captured that moment in timeÖ..and upon reflection it surpassed all of our wildest expectations. Hope you enjoy listening. Romeo Stodart

The Mar-Keys, formed in 1958, were an American studio session band for Stax Records, in Memphis, Tennessee, in the 1960s.As the first house band for the label, their backing music formed the foundation for the early 1960s Stax sound.Their first and most famous recording was the organ- and saxophone-driven single "Last Night", it reached #3 Pop and #2 in the R&B charts in the United States.It also appeared on Last Night!, the first LP released by the Stax label.Selling over one million copies, earning certification as a gold disc.The lineup for this recording included the Royal Spades' Steve Cropper (normally a guitarist, here playing second keyboard; producer Chips Moman did not want a guitar part on the song), Packy Axton (tenor sax), Wayne Jackson (trumpet), and Jerry Lee "Smoochy" Smith (main keyboards), augmented by horn players Floyd Newman (baritone sax), Gilbert Caple (tenor sax) and others.The EP contains four tracks in total, Last Night, Sticks & Stones, Sit Still and Pop Eye Stroll

Thelonious Monk's compositions/improvisations feature dissonances with complicated melodic twists and are consistent with his unorthodox approach to the piano (which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of switched key releases, silences, and hesitations).Monk was known for a distinct look which included suits, hats, and sunglasses.He was also noted for an idiosyncratic habit during performances: while other musicians continued playing, Monk would stop, stand up, and dance for a few moments before returning to the piano. Thelonious started playing the piano at the age of six and was largely self-taughtÖat 17, he was playing the church organ, and in his late teens he began to find work playing jazz.In the early to mid-1940s, he was already a house pianist in several Manhattan nightclubs.In 1944 Thelonious Monk made his first studio recordingsÖand since then he recorded classic albums for labels such as Blue Note (1947-1952), Prestige (1952-1954), Riverside (1955-1961) and Columbia (1962-1968). By the mid-1970s Monk had disappeared from the scene and made only a small number of appearances during the final decade of his life.Thelonious Monk died of a stroke in 1982, leaving us with an unparalleled legacy. In 1963 Monk was at the top of his game.With his steady quartet of veteran collaborators, he had landed himself a new contract with Columbia and recorded 2 milestone albums for them (Monk's Dream and Criss-Cross).Soon after Thelonious Monk started touring in Europe to promote his freshly recorded materialÖand he brought his critically acclaimed line-up with him on tour: Charlie Rouse on saxophone, John Ore on double bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums. On the album we are presenting you today (Palais Des Beaux-Arts 1963) you'll find unearthed Belgian concert-recordings from that era.The show consisted of 2 partsÖboth were recorded by the national Belgian broadcast company BRT/RTB who had the best recording-equipment on the market at the time.The set we unearthed here (the BRT recordings part) consists of tracks from said Columbia albums which have now become omnipresent Jazz standards. Monk took the stage in his unique style with a grey wool Papakha as his hat choice.At that point unseen for the attending crowdÖthe showman shuffled across the stage, waving his arms as if he was about to lift off.He would take the crowd on a ride they would never forget.It was the first time Thelonious Monk played the prestigious Palais des Beaux-Arts venue in Brussels to an enthusiastic crowd of Belgian Jazz fans.Full house! The quartet delivers their set with true tight mastership (mixed with Monk's trademark improvisational avant-garde flair) and leaving room for a jaw dropping minute long drum solo mid-set.All this...and as an encore, the famous Monk solo rendition of the classic song Just a GigoloÖmake this a must-have for any self-respecting Jazz aficionado. This release is the product of a labor of love from a dedicated professional team of archivists and musical technicians who have spent the last 15 years carefully restoring and cleaning more than 80 years of Belgian audiovisual culture, bringing these audio-gems from their vaults in Brussels into the digital world and preserving them for future generations.

Celebrating the 40 year Anniversary of the debut LP by the Wipers. Includes individually AUTOGRAPHED concert poster by Greg Sage. Bonus 45 with four songs from the original 4 track sessions. Transparent Clear Audiophile Vinyl pressed at RTI with custom reflective mirror board jacket. Unquestionably Portland's most well-loved punk group, the Wipers formed in the late 1970s and in 1980 released their debut LP, "Is This Real?"- twelve songs of stabbing, jittery guitar, snapped vocals, and unabashed teen angst. Full of desperation and yearning, the LP has stood as a blueprint for wretched youth for over 25 years. In the early 1990s "Is This Real?" was given mainstream attention when Nirvana covered two tracks off the record and Cobain announced it was one of the primary influences on his group.

Using a variety of both classical andnovel instrument; from exotic percussion and full-scale orchestra and choir to vintage electronics, Mr Uneback paints a vivid and living tableau for the receptive listener. This is exotic orchestral seduction for those willing to embark on a journey of imagination. Submerge yourself in the sounds!

The same 11 tracks that have made a visceral connection with fans over the last 21 years - the deeply dark and confessional lyrical content, the no-frills production qualities and Greg Dulli’s soul-baring vocal performances captured on tape. In addition, the album includes all the original demos for the album, which were recorded at John Curley’s Ultrasuede studio space in Cincinnati.

The set comes packaged with a faithful reproduction of the original sleeve art and its striking front cover image, an homage to Nan Goldin’s iconic ‘Nan And Brian In Bed, New York City’.

With such talent at play though, it wasn’t long before this inspired five piece created material of their own. An album The Church of Simultaneous Existence, comprised entirely of Kuepper originals written in the period 1969-1978, was was released internationally to much fanfare and was a hit with fans and critics alike.5-6-7-8-9 is the next release from The Aints!

                                                                                                                                                                      Nearly twenty years into a career that has seen Jimmy LaValle exercising his creativity across the realms of film scoring, sound collage, and electronic / rock music, via instrumental and vocal-driven compositions alike, LaValle and The Album Leaf are poised to deliver yet another sonic triumph with 2016’s Between Waves.

                                                                                                                                                                      Born out of a thorough reinvention of LaValle's creative process and approach, Between Waves is The Album Leaf's first proper full-length record in over six years and the first to be recorded and produced as a complete band, and was written with greater emphasis on the group dynamic. The album displays multifaceted, meticulous sound design, a keen ear for balancing disparate influences, and the strongest senses of dynamics, rhythm, and composition The Album Leaf has displayed to date. From the moody evolution of "Glimmering Lights" to the wistful trip-hop stylings of "New Soul" and beyond, Between Waves is a gorgeous collection of euphoric melodies and emotionally charged, multi-instrumental driven soundscapes from the longstanding innovators. This is intelligent, beautifully composed music at its most inventive, most confident, and most impressive.

Not like 'It doesn't sound like The Album Leaf' different, it definitely does, but with an urgency previously unheard. I'm a big fan of LaValle's mellow Rhodes-based compositions (the recent reissue of 'In A Safe Place' was one of my record-buying highlights of recent times). The Rhodes is still present here fortunately, but it is backed with thumping drums in places, glitchy snares and giant swells, all topped off with silky vocal refrains. Pristinely produced and exciting from beginning to end. Rich and luxurious. Like a Creme Egg, but better for you.

                                                                                                                                                                      Tony Allen & Hugh Masekela

                                                                                                                                                                        ‘Rejoice’ is a very special collaboration between Tony Allen, the legendary drummer and co-founder of Afrobeat, and Hugh Masekela, the master trumpet player of South African jazz. Having first met in the 70s thanks to their respective close associations with FelaKuti, the two world-renowned musicians talked for decades about making an album together. When, in 2010, their touring schedules coincided in the UK, the moment presented itself and producer Nick Gold took the opportunity to record their encounter. The unfinished sessions, consisting of all original compositions by the pair, lay in archive until after Masekela passed away in 2018. With renewed resolution, Tony Allen and Nick Gold, with the blessing and participation of Hugh Masekela’s estate, unearthed the original tapes and finished recording the album in summer 2019 at the same London studio where the original sessions had taken place.

                                                                                                                                                                        ‘Rejoice’ can be seen as the long overdue confluence of two mighty African musical rivers – a union of two free-flowing souls for whom borders, whether physical or stylistic, are things to pass through or ignore completely. According to Allen, the album deals in “a kind of South African-Nigerian swing-jazz stew”, with its roots firmly in Afrobeat. Allen and Masekela are accompanied on the record by a new generation of well-respected jazz musicians including Tom Herbert (Acoustic Ladyland / The Invisible), Joe Armon-Jones (Ezra Collective), Mutale Chashi (Kokoroko) and Steve Williamson.

Especially poignant and arresting following Masekela's death a couple of years ago; it's a delight to see the musician on top of his game till his dying breadth. They don't make em like they used to!

                                                                                                                                                                        Lock yourself into the beat, but don’t become prisoner to it. The techno pioneer Jeff Mills understands that only too well. In his quest to liberate himself from the tyranny of the sequencer, Mills couldn’t wish for a better partner than the father of Afrobeat.

                                                                                                                                                                        Many consider Tony Allen to be one of the greatest drummers alive. In the last thirty years, his signature mix of Nigerian roots, polyglot jazz and no-fuss funkiness has spread like a virus, infecting the work of artists as diverse as Damon Albarn, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Moritz Oswald. Jeff Mills is a titan of the electronic dance scene and a tireless innovator, who helped to give birth to the 1980s Detroit techno scene before going on to compose electro symphonies, soundtracks and sonic odysseys inspired by futurism and space travel, working with visual artists, choreographers, classical orchestras, even astronauts.

                                                                                                                                                                        His collaboration with Tony Allen is another rhythmic conversation in a long and well-established discourse, but a special one too: “It really is a pure collaboration, not just through music, but in our minds and spirit as well.” The same goes for Tony Allen. He has already collaborated with quite a few electro artists during his long career but this is something else. “The difference is that Jeff can play with me, whereas the others cannot play with me. I can only play with them, but they cannot play with me…yunastan?”

                                                                                                                                                                        The pair first shared a stage in December 2016, at the New Morning in Paris. Their live shows have become a rhythm summit without equal, a chance to witness two of the world’s most innovative beat-makers, supplemented by the Moogs and synths of Jean-Philippe Dary, fusing past and future into an intense, seamless present where digital and analogue, jazz and electro, Africa and America, the source and the delta, become one.

                                                                                                                                                                        In some ways Allen and Mills have already fashioned their own sovereign self-designed state, one where improvisation, creativity and instinct reign. It’s rooted in Africa, yes, but like the music of Art Blakey, it goes beyond Africa, beyond America, beyond the force-fields of history and the structures of technology. That’s all the excitement - to get on board with two of the world greatest living masters of rhythm, set the controls for the heart of their spinning world, and boldly go into the unknown.

                                                                                                                                                                        "The Source" is the Nigerian drummer's first album for Blue Note, one of the most prestigious names in jazz and a label that has opened its sphere of activity considerably wider since its renaissance in the eighties. Perhaps more than any other title in the catalogue, "The Source" represents the label's classic era at the same time as it symbolizes Blue Note's innovative present. The album achieves this by means of a sound-aesthetic that has total integrity, the result of a scrupulous transcribing of the music using a technology that is exclusively analogue, and doing so according to the precepts of the virtuous philosophy inherited from the label's founders, Alfred Lion and Marx Margulis. Piccadilly regulars should be well aware of the talents of Tony Allen by now. Pretty much the most prolific musician of the afro-beat scene still alive today! 77 years old and this guy keeps on ticking - or motoring rather, as his excessive, flamboyant, but totally in-the-pocket drumming demonstrates. Like all true jazz men, his personality comes through in his performance and through the course of "The Source" we find him backed up by a more than accomplished set of musicians - skirting around trad and spiritual jazz with inspired passages and lavish arrangement. Top, top stuff indeed.

                                                                                                                                                                          North Carolina’s The Annuals have had a whirlwind ride. They released their first album, "Be He Me", in 2006 while each of their six members were only around nineteen years old. Bloggers, critics, and fans alike fell in love with the album. Two years later, they released their second album "Such Fun". The Annuals are currently embarking on their most dynamic and creative project yet, a 2010 EP release "Sweet Sister", which has been written, recorded and produced entirely by its founder, Adam Baker, in the band’s own hometown recording studio. "Sweet Sister" encompasses the pure energy that Annuals are known for: the quirky experimentalism, the intrinsic pop sensibility, the impeccable production, and the boundless independent spirit. It is electrifyingly alive, and promises to be yet another highlight in this young band’s successful and blossoming career.

                                                                                                                                                                          Recorded throughout the spring of 2010 by frontman and first time producer Martin Colclough, "Lifeline" is the album that everybody believed The Answering Machine could make. A departure and a knowing deviation from the sound that established the band on 2009’s angular debut "Another City, Another Sorry", "Lifeline" is a unique, intelligent and diverse LP. Stylistically extensive, the album clicks between moments of post rock magnificence to glitch-driven programming; at once inhaling a varied catalogue of influences and exhaling a body of work that will top End of Year polls.

                                                                                                                                                                          After working with producers from London and New York, writing songs in Tokyo, demoing in sky scrapers and honing ideas in Brooklyn, it became obvious that ‘home’ was the perfect place to pull "Lifeline" together. The cliché goes that record producers are the so-called ‘fifth member’ of the band but Manchester’s The Answering Machine decided to keep things simple and opted for an actual member of the band to produce their second album. After several successful remix projects, frontman Martin Colclough decided to step up to the role. What followed was not an expensive studio, engineers or remote location; instead the band opted for their underground practice room in the city centre. From six feet under they emerged with their lifeline.

                                                                                                                                                                          While journalists stalked the streets murmuring buzz words and hailing the new ‘Manchester scene’ The Answering Machine were hard to find. They were in fact below the city campaigning for change, creating a record that is far removed from people’s expectations of them, peeling all the layers of what journalists and fans had deemed them to be and avoiding being caught up in any industry onslaught on their city. They stand alone and by doing so have rediscovered themselves, their identity and uncovered a new sound. Central to this regeneration has been the acquisition of a number of vintage synths passed down from the Factory Records band Repetition. These, along with pump organs and acoustic guitars, opened up a new and more collaborative way of writing for the band.

                                                                                                                                                                          There are no gimmicks, stories or press angles for The Answering Machine on their second album campaign. This is because what the band have created and achieved is truly remarkable and therefore the ONLY thing worth writing about. Musically eclectic, textural and complex, lyrically sophisticated, honest and striking "Lifeline" is a very special record; the first great record of 2011. It documents a band reborn, a band who have taken the model of Radiohead and The Beatles before them, determined to make a record that sounds nothing like their last. They have succeeded with a grace and elegance all of their own.

                                                                                                                                                                          STAFF COMMENTS

                                                                                                                                                                            Based in Sydney, Peter Milton Walsh and his band, The Apartments, are acclaimed by critics and fans alike all over the world. Peter Milton Walsh formed The Apartments in Brisbane, 1978, and left Australia for New York a few years later, and relocated to England when The Apartments were signed by Rough Trade. But before leaving Australia, Walsh was sought out by Robert Forster and Grant McLennan, of Brisbane's most critically adored band, The Go-Betweens. Having been offered an 8-album deal by Beserkley Records, Forster and McLennan asked Walsh to join The Go-Betweens as their fourth member in late 1978. The union was, however, short-lived, as the deal with Beserkley fell through. Grant McLennan famously said of their different personalities, "Walsh is night, we are day. We're sun, he's rain." In and Out of the Light is a classic Apartments album, with songs, lines and melodies coming back to you long after the music has stopped playing. The album came together in a new way for The Apartments. Recording began in Sydney, at the end of winter of 2019. Working a few hours a day, one or two days a week, the album was finished in the summer, with the final mix completed the day before coronavirus lockdown hit Australia in 2020.

                                                                                                                                                                            Peter Milton Walsh and bass player Eliot Fish worked with producer Tim Kevin in his Marrickville studio in Sydney, while French Apartments, Natasha Penot and Antoine Chaperon, recorded their parts in various studios in France. English drummer Nick Allum worked in London. In and Out of the Light (their 7th studio album) again features Chris Abrahams from The Necks on piano. The vocal and piano for We Talked Through Till Dawn were recorded live in one take with Peter singing as Chris played piano. Miro Bukovsky, who played on No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal, again plays flugelhorn and trumpet. In 2015, The Apartments surprised fans by re-emerging -after over a decade of silence-with No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal, an album that saw a new audience drawn to The Apartments music. By year's end, readers and critics of French music magazine Magic named No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal #1 Album of the Year. Five years later, In and Out of the Light is the highly anticipated album that will once more appeal to existing fans and new ones as well. The Apartments exquisite instrumentation and beautiful harmonies and Peter Milton Walsh's impressionistic storytelling work together beautifully on In and Out of the Light. Here are eight songs to get lost in-for a day, for a week, for a lifetime.

                                                                                                                                                                              Considered to be one of the titans in the original second wave of emo bands, TheAppleseed Cast rose to the spotlight in the late 90's and early to mid 2000's, with a string albums, including Low Level Owl I & II, and non-stop touring, earning them high critical praise and a loyal following. Their influence can be heard in countless contemporary bands such as Chvrches - whose lead singer is a self-proclaimed super fan, Basement, Mewithoutyou and so many more.

                                                                                                                                                                              While fanship continues to grow with each new incarnation from the band, time between albums has also grown a bit over the last 10 years. Despite lineup changes or time between, Crisci is still focused, as much as ever, on touring and continuing to produce the innovative landscape of music the band is known for.

Also featured on the album are Kenny Vaughan, and Mariachi Flor de Toloache. Yours, Dreamily, includes the singles ‘Stay In My Corner’ – about which NPR Music wrote, ‘It's got a slinky, timeless feel, propelled with alluring ease by Auerbach's falsetto and a lush instrumental backdrop befitting The Arcs' roster’ – and ‘Outta My Mind’, ‘A great of slab of loose, catchy, psych-rock blues,’ in the words of the NME. 

                                                                                                                                                                              The Arcs collaboratively wrote and recorded 13 tracks for Yours, Dreamily, with the musicians playing a large array of roles both vocally and instrumentally. Co-produced by Auerbach and Michels, the album was recorded in roughly two weeks through spontaneous, informal sessions across the country at the Sound Factory in Los Angeles, the Diamond Mine in Queens, Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, and in a lounge room at Electric Lady in Manhattan. Tchad Blake mixed the album on his horse farm in Wales.

                                                                                                                                                                              Tompkins Square's recent double-LP, Imaginational Anthem vol 8 : The Private Press shed light on forgotten, impossibly rare guitar recordings spanning several decades. Tom Armstrong's The Sky Is An Empty Eye is the first of several reissues planned by Tompkins Square of full albums by artists featured on IA8. Armstrong's self-released LP from 1987 sports blissed out acoustic numbers like the one featured on IA8, along with some electric workouts and even a deep pysch vocal tune. Tom's main mode of distribution for the album was handing the LP to drunken patrons at a bar in Pinos Altos, NM. Now Tompkins Square makes it a bit easier to acquire.

Had a brief career playing open mikes and bars for tips, drinks and nominal cash payments, even gave some guitar lessons. In 1984 I was offered a half partnership in an engineering firm in Dallas, so I moved to Texas. Made a big pile of money. My wife bought me a Tascam 4 track recorder for my birthday, I went crazy with it. Recorded a bunch of melodies that had been rattling around my brain since I was 8 years old. Liked what I heard, decided to make an LP. It wasn't too hard to track down a studio to master my 4 tracks. By this time I was an old hand at graphic design for promotional material, so I designed the cover myself. Handed the albums out to business associates, as promotional material for other business interests, at a drunken open mike at a bar in Pinos Altos, NM. I continued to record for about another 10 years, blues rock, pop. Really refined my recording skills. Still play once in while, but I'm an old fart now, with all the baggage that entails.

On "He Builds Bombs", The Arm have stepped up the intensity with a relentless assault of frenzied rhythms, razor-edged guitars and acid-damaged electronica.
