NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

Black Friday releases are now available online - all are very limited so order ASAP!!!
"Includes Never Before Issued Instrumentals! Comes Packaged In A Gatefold Jacket With A 28-Page Booklet! Earth Rot is visionary composer/ arranger/ producer David Axelrod’s third album, and the last of his Capitol trilogy. Recorded as a concept album about the decrepit state of the environment in 1970 Los Angeles, and scheduled for release on the first Earth Day, it features choral vocals and marks a departure for Axelrod’s signature sound, which would take on a jazzier feel in the 1970s. This definitive version of Earth Rot, overseen by Now-Again’s Eothen Alapatt in conjunction with Axelrod’s Estate, fulfills a request Axelrod made while alive – to see the instrumentals of this album, never beforereleased, issued. They see release here as the second LP in a 2LP set. This is an audiophile reissue, with the vocal version lacquered directly from Axelrod’s original master tapes at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster. The master was approved by Axelrod’s son Michael, who adapted ancient lyrics for the album in one of three collaborative projects he did with his father. Contains a 28 page booklet that delves into Axelrod’s incredible life and music, replete with never before published photos and an interview.

The Breeders

Safari (Black Friday 2018)

    Being released this November as part of Record Store Day’s sister Black Friday event is a faithful repress of the 12” version of The Breeders’ Safari EP, complete with Shinro Ohtake’s 1983 charcoal drawing Nairobi VIII adorning its cover. Originally released in April 1992, sandwiched between their first two albums (Pod and Last Splash), The Breeders’ Safari EP came at a time when Kim’s Pixies commitments were winding down and her new band were on the cusp of releasing a platinum-selling album.

    Their first record to feature Kim Deal’s twin Kelley, the EP was recorded in two studios with the bulk coming from a session in New York, which provided an early version of ‘Do You Love Me Now?’, ‘Don’t Call Home’ and a cover of The Who’s ‘So Sad About Us’. The title track, ‘Safari’, was recorded separately in London by Kim, Josephine Wiggs and drummer Jon Mattock (Spacemen 3 / Spiritualized).

    Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats

    Rocket 88 / Come Back Where You Belong (Black Friday 2018)

      The Byrds

      Sweetheart Of The Rodeo - Legacy Edition (Black Friday 2018)

        By the time Sweetheart Of The Rodeo was released in 1968, The Byrds had already changed the sound of rock music twice; from jangling folk-rock to experimental acid-rock, they constantly sought to push the boundaries of what rock music could be. The 1967 departure of David Crosby left a creative void filled quickly by country music-loving Gram Parsons, whose addition led Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman and company to record an album comprised mostly of authentic country material in Nashville, with the aid of local session aces (including future Byrd Clarence White). For the first time on vinyl—and on the heels of a 50th anniversary tour of the album by original members McGuinn and Hillman—this Legacy Edition of Sweetheart Of The Rodeo showcases this country-rock masterpiece alongside 28 bonus tracks, including demos, outtakes, rehearsal versions and tracks by Parsons’ pre-Byrds outfit, The International Submarine Band.

        Genre-busting album that takes onboard the 21st Century psychedelia that is inspired by bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Mercury Rev and Spiritualized and then mixes it with leftfield electronic beats and noises. This is their second album and is massive leap from the warm electronica sound that was the hallmark of their first album, the music here can be best descibed as drawn out widescreen and the addition of vocals achieves a psychedelic lyricism more usually associated with bands such as The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev. The reviews were stunning and it was Jockey Slut's album of the month, making this an album that you'll be hearing about for a long time!!

              Melt Yourself Down (Black Friday 2018)

              Melt Yourself Down’s self-titled debut album is the sound of Cairo 1957, Cologne 1972, New York 1978, and London 2013. The group is the brainchild of Pete Wareham (Acoustic Ladyland, Polar Bear), who’s roped in a distinguished crew of brilliant musicians, including Kushal Gaya (Zun Zun Egui), Shabaka Hutchings (Sons Of Kemet, Heliocentrics), Tom Skinner (Hello Skinny, Mulatu Astatke), Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland, Rokia Traoré), and Satin Singh (Fela!)/ Together they make a primal, tribal stew of horns and drums and unhinged vocals that bring to mind the Bristol-based punk-jazz craziness of Rip, Rig & Panic, Pig Pag etc.

              LP Info: White vinyl.

                    Solar guided improvisations of unbridled cacophony! Recorded in ‘73 and rejected by tin-eared major label execs in ‘75, "Crystal Spears" (or “Crystal Clear” as it appears on the tape box) subsumes a cathartic brawl between Minimoog and Yamaha combo organ, with percussionists providing tonal textures, and plaintive oboe colliding with roaring electronic keyboards over waes of rollicking marimba, devilishly chattering below the fray. "Crystal Spears" is Ra’s once lost aural cinematheque! Intended for release in 1975 by ABC/Impulse!, "Crystal Spears" was ultimately rejected by the label, perhaps the new group of execs just didn’t 'hear' what was going on on these recordings. Certainly for the uninitiated, this is not jazz as they know it but unbridled cacophony...or is it? Modern Harmonic presents the first legitimate LP release of Crystal Spears, pressed on colored vinyl and with liner notes by Ra-ficionado Brother Cleve!

                    STAFF COMMENTS

                    Matt says: Funny, despite the above claiming it a 'difficult' and 'cacophonous' listen - I actually really like this one! Such is the joy of Sun Ra - every fan seems to like a different facet of his personality and sound.
