Sorry To Bother You: Original Score

    Tune-Yards’ original score for Boots Riley’s acclaimed surrealist social satire 2018 film ‘Sorry To Bother You’ (starring Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson) has been praised by Billboard as “a simultaneously erratic and ecstatic medley of instruments and vocal layering”. Tune-Yards’ score album follows the 2018 release of ‘Sorry To Bother You: The Soundtrack’ by The Coup. Director Boots Riley described the score as “the film’s musical voice” and explains the difference between the score and the soundtrack: “The characters can’t hear [the score]; the soundtrack, the characters can [hear].” The score also includes dialogue samples from the film and four bonus tracks never before heard in the film. The bonus tracks feature up-and-coming Oakland artists including Chhoti Maa as well as Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truthspeaker.


    Breathe / Sorry

    Second 45 from the darling dears of Rialto, CA, Brainstory. This new 7" showcases the funkier, jazzier but equally soulful side of Brainstory ahead of their debut album "Buck", produced entirely by Leon Michels out later thisyear. The A side, "Breathe", takes a page out of the Shuggie Otis playbook and then flips the script with some stoned out, west coast swag. In the words of Kevin, Brainstory's lead chanteur, 'Breathe is a song about letting go of the emotional baggage of our lives in order to become who we truly are. Before this new journey can happen we got to stop back and take a breath. Relax. Use the power of this simple act to become your higher self.' Side B, "Sorry" keeps on with the same swagger as "Breathe" but finds brother and bass player extraordinaire, Tony, taking over the vocal duties. In his words, '"Sorry" is an expression of the truth in a relationship that has ran its course. Nobody wants to say it but eventually this truth prevails and becomes undeniable.'

    Josef K

    Sorry For Laughing

      The legendary first album by cult Scottish guitar group Josef K, recorded for Postcard Records but destined to become the great ‘lost album’ of the post-punk era.

      Recorded at Castle Sound Studios (Edinburgh) in November 1980, Sorry For Laughing should have been issued as Postcard 81-1, but was shelved after the band and label boss Alan Horne decided the 12-song set sounded too polished. Perhaps two dozen white-label copies in unmade sleeves exist, and have sold for as much as £1,000 amongst collectors. Josef K issued their second stab at a debut album, The Only Fun In Town, in July 1981 – only to split after completing a promotional tour.

      This remastered vinyl-only edition of Sorry For Laughing replicates the original Robert Sharp artwork (a solarised portrait of the band atop Calton Hill, printed in silver pantone), with detailed sleeve notes on the inner bag, and the added bonus of a 12 track CD, The TV Art Demos, featuring all tracks from the band’s very first recording sessions in 1979.

      ‘They were The Sound of Young Scotland, together with Orange Juice, whose guitars were also radiant and brittle, whose rhythms were also scrubbed and blunt, whose vocals were also proud and serious, but who sounded like another group entirely’ (Paul Morley); ‘In retrospect, their aborted attempt at a debut album feels much superior to what was finally released. The early versions of the songs sound superbly coiled and keen, the sublime poise of Endless Soul their truly timeless blaze of glory’ (Simon Reynolds)

      Showgirl / Twinkle

        Sorry are back with a new 7”, following their previous 7” singles, ‘Wished’ / ‘Lies’ from last year and ‘2 Down 2 Dance’ earlier in the year.

        The ferocious ‘Showgirl’ is the third and last instalment of the band's early singles period, produced by Frank Ocean and James Blake collaborator Sean Oakley, who also helmed the band’s 2017 debut single, ‘Lies’.

        The band recently toured the UK with Sunflower Bean.

        Listed among the Dazed ‘100 for 2018’.

        “Fuzzed out guitars and production with a lo-fi edge, it's an off kilter return that recalls everyone from Pavement to The Fall's chart flirtation” – Clash.

        “A top-drawer shame spiral from a great new English altrock band. Lead singer Asha Lorenz moans about falling to pieces, and the guitars pull her hard into the emo deep” - Rolling Stone.

        Jessica Lea Mayfield

        Sorry Is Gone

          ‘Sorry Is Gone’, the highly anticipated new full length album from Jessica Lea Mayfield, is released on ATO Records.

          The 11-track record was recorded at Water Music and Electric Lady studios with producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Phosphorescent).

          Of the record, Mayfield comments, “The whole record is about me taking my life back, without really realizing it. I realized I’m the only person that is going to look out for me. I have to be my main person. No one else.” She continues, “I have to sing about things and write about things that have happened to me as therapy. That’s what connects me to other music I listen to. I want music to make me feel things. This is my inner dialogue, and my chance to get the last word.”

          ‘Sorry Is Gone’ is Mayfield’s first solo album since 2014’s ‘Make My Head Sing…’, which was released to widespread acclaim. Of the album, Rolling Stone asserted, “…Mayfield’s echo-laden bluegrass vocals mesh with scorching electric guitar lines to render remarkable results,” while Pitchfork praised, “There’s something certainly compelling about this raw, minimalist sound.”

          Superstar & Star

          Keep On Rocking - Inc. DJ I'm Sorry Remix

          Keeping it 'Gazza-grade mental' on their thirteenth release, Porridge Bullet open their arms and pressing plant to the king of late night Nebraska TV, Superstar & Star and his lo-fi, high power muzik. If you're blankly unaware of Omaha's most prolific songwriting force, then school's now in session. Neville Lawrence left his native Trinidad in the mid-80s and landed in downtown NYC, taking the smaller, seedier clubs by storm with his homemade costumes and lo-fi take on funk, hop hop and house. After a chance subway meeting with the woman of his dreams, Lawrence swapped the Big Apple for the Big O' and knuckled down in the home studio, releasing twenty CD albums - all of which are self titled. This 12", recorded in one take after a trip to the zoo last Autumn, is the first new track from the undisputed king of home-disco... Superstar. As hypnotic and floor-shaking as ever, "Keep on Rocking" keeps you on your toes through twists and turns, focused on a central mantra. It is what Jamie Principle's fathers' lullaby might have sounded if had tried to put his son to sleep with his best impression of Michael Jackson and Leroy Burgess. Throw in timewarping pitchy synths and solid percussion and we're in full Ata Kak mode. The B-Side is a powerhouse reimagining turned all the way up to 11 by the mysterious DJ Im Sorry. Brooding braindance synths and harsh, garbled sonics call to mind the looser end of the Jamal Moss spectrum, as this one marches on and on. Feel the force y'all!

          One of the most pivotal figures in the history of Malian music is Sorry Bamba. His work spans five decades and his music bridges the gap between Mali's cultural traditions and new the music which arose from the musical crossovers which occurred in Mali's post-Colonial period. 

          In 1979 Sorry produced his third LP for the Paris based Sonafric group. Long out of print Africa Seven is pleased to be re-issuing the LP with the authorization of the newly reformed Sonafric group. The re-issue benefits from extensive restoration and re-mastering to a spectral analysis level, bringing and polishing long lost and distorted sounds.The six track masterpiece opens with "Mayel". It blends Afro-space grooves, cowbell and swirling organ with psych guitar and punchy horns. "Kanaga 78" was named after his band of the time. Sounding as fresh (if not more so) in 2016 as it did in 1979 the hypnotic bass, expansive drums, twisting organ and snakelike fuzz-guitar all combine to create a masterpiece of African psychedelia. "Bayadjourou" closes off Side A of the LP with its pulsating, incessant organ hook-line and driving tom drums while adding in layers of Malian vocal from a female chorus and Sorry himself. Side B opens up with "Tjamantie Kolo" which is powered by driving conga and drums layered with traditional vocals and distorted picked electric guitar lines. "N'Nebakaidi" focuses on the song writing skill and delivery of Sorry who delivers a masterful vocal over grooves which somehow manage to sound melancholy but somehow also forlornly uplifting at the same time. The LP closes with "Nani Nani" which is a brass driven wall of African sound. Stay tuned for further re-issues of Sorry Bamba's first and second albums soon on Africa Seven.


          Patrick says: Get your oven gloves at the ready, because this record is red hot! Fusing stomping, straight ahead percussion with wild psych solos, swirling organ and proggy synth wig outs, this African trip is Bamba's masterpiece. Back in print for the first time in 27 years - buy on sight!

          The Bid-On (Giuliano Sorgini)

          Sorry Puppet

            Reprint of the rare 1972 library LP by Maestro Giuliano Sorgini under the pseudonyms of Raskovich and The Bid-On. Originally released in just a few copies for a small label owned by a friend of Maestro Sorgini, this LP includes 12 really beautiful tracks with positive vibes. From jazz dance, bossa nova, funk, and some killer breaks, with lots of percussion, growling flute and honking sax.

            Reissued with the original minimal artwork designed by Giuliano Sorgini drawn with chalk on a black sheet. Glossy Cinedelic cover. Limited to 600 copies.

            The Replacements

            Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash

            Rhino retraces the shambolic swath the influential Minneapolis quartet cut across the American Underground, reissuing deluxe editions of the band's Twin/Tone releases. All have been exquisitely remastered and generously embellished with rare and previously unreleased tracks. The band was instrumental in selecting the bonus songs, many of which have never been heard-even among the band's most ardent followers. Released in 81, "Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash" was The Replacements' audacious debut. Songs such as "Takin A Ride", "Shiftless When Idle", "Customer" and "Johnny's Gonna Die" herald the band's competing tendencies toward genius and bleary, drunken repugnance. The thirteen bonus tracks open appropriately with the four songs Westerberg gave to Peter Jesperson in 1980 that brought the band to Twin/Tone's attention.

            The Uncomfortables

            Look! Who's Sorry Now?

            The release of "Look! Who's Sorry Now?" follows the success of previous single "Windmills", backed with "Vodka Stomach" and "Set Me Free", this is intense psychedelic-surf-pop with twinges of the Modern Lovers, Twin Peaks and film noir.
