Metallica

The Wait is over…Actually, it’s back! Nearly three decades after going out of print, Metallica will release a remastered version of The $5.98 EP - Garage Days Re-Revisited on April 13, 2018 as part of thir ongoing remasters series via their own Blackened Recordings label.

Originally released over 30 years ago on August 21, 1987, the collection features the band covering songs by early Metallica influencers such as Diamond Head, Holocaust, Killing Joke, Budgie, and The Misfits. The five songs from the EP were later included as a part of the 1998 multi-platinum release Garage, Inc., but the band felt it was time to bring it back in the original formats!
Garage Days Re-Revisited was remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA

A Place To Bury Strangers

A couple of years ago, A Place to Bury Strangers were in search of a new drummer. Lia Simone Braswell, an L.A. native, had recently moved to New York, and was playing drums in shows around Brooklyn "just to keep her chops up." As it turned out, APTBS bassist Dion Lunadon caught one of those shows and, after seeing her play, was moved to ask her if she'd want to come to a band practice sometime. For well over a decade now, A Place to Bury Strangers-Lunadon, founding guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann, and, officially, Lia Braswell-have become well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable, often bewildering live shows, and total, some might say dangerous volume. This April marks the release of Pinned, their fifth full-length and an album that finds them converting difficult moments into some of their most urgent work to date. It's their first since the 2016 election, and their first since the 2014 closing of Death By Audio, the beloved Brooklyn DIY space where Ackermann lived, worked, and created with complete freedom. There are searing meditations on truth and government-led conspiracies ("Execution"), as well as haunting, harmonized responses to the tensions of our current political climate ("There's Only One of Us"). It all opens with "Never Coming Back," a frightening crescendo of group vocals, vertiginous guitar work, and Lunadon's unrelenting bass. It's a clear and honest statement of intent, not just for everything that follows, but for this band as a whole.

Sandy Bull

A musical alchemist, introvert, gearhead, former junky, itinerant wanderer and erstwhile musicologist, his adventurous investigations of stringed instruments, whether guitar, banjo, the Hindustani sarod or the Turkish oud, predated celebrated savants like John Fahey and Leo Kottke. But Bull’s music got lost in the haze of his brief career, which began with the seminal Fantasia in 1964 and seemingly ended with an ode to self-destruction, Demolition Derby, in 1972. It would be 16 years before he would make another record, by which time Sandy Bull was largely forgotten. In many ways Steel Tears, first released in 1996 on his own label, stands as the musical testimony of a man trying to make sense of his own history. These eleven songs form a kind of playlist as memoir, drawn from hard-won memories and a lifelong love of music, all of it shot through with sincerity and friendship. —Joe Hagan From the liner notes to Steel Tears: This, the first-ever reissue of Steel Tears, features the newly remastered album alongside Endventions, four previously unissued tracks recorded by Bull before he passed away in 2001. Wrapping up the disc is three tribute tracks recorded in Nashville by a band comprised of some pretty well known Sandy Bull fans. The tribute band includes Jeff Hanna (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Matraca Berg, Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), Kevin Welch, Glenn Word (Mark Knopfler) and Harry Stinson (Marty Stuart). “Love Is Forever” features Sandy’s vocals with Matraca Berg singing back up and Mickey Raphael adding harmonica. Jeff Hanna from The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band takes lead on “I May Never Pass Out” and the ensemble wraps up the tribute tracks with a run through the instrumental “Jesse James Jam.” A unique reissue, featuring and honoring the work of a completely unique, innovative artist, Steel Tears finally gets the wide releases it has so richly deserved for so long!

This new album features wonderful rich harmonies and warm voices, combined with Naturally 7’s unique talents to perform a variety of instruments simply with their voices. The album contains classics spanning over many decades from Anton Dvorak to Britan’s most patriotic Hymn ‚Jerusalem‘, to Roberta Flack’s ‚First Time, Ever I Saw your face’, Sting’s ’Shape Of My Heart’ feat. youTube’s a cappella-Star Peter Hollens, McCartney’s ‚Pipes Of Peace‘, the title-track: Joni Mitchell’s ‚Both Sides Now‘, , as well as the group’s original song, which always closes their live-show: ‚Caught in the moment‘, feat. Pentatonix’ Kevin Olusola on cello. …and that is the only instrument, you’re about to hear on this new masterpiece from the A Cappella-Kings. To demonstrate and to complete Naturally 7’s versatility, this 1-hr. DVD of the group’s 2017 sensational Live-concert in Berlin is a must for fans and those, who just discovered these hugely talented artists. It shows the incredible individual skills of the 7 guys, and their live-show is generally considered one of the best A Cappella live-shows in the world. The DVD features their best and most successful live material over the last 10 years. The enthusiastic Berlin-crowd celebrates the group’s “Best of“.

Uranium Club

Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 live release. "Nothing like a carb-load Italian pre-show feast and table wine to grease the gears of some live action in Fidenza, Italy. A land-locked classico right where you would pinch to hike up the boot. A club packed tight with handsome men and women abused by sonic marauders. Have you seen Uranium Club live? No? Drop everything. They are complete-package slayers. Watch-works drummer power, shred-haired bass magic (glasses flying), ripped twin guitar flexing on nerd beach, vocals poured through the skylight into your e-holes and over your thought center, sunglasses all around: fucking hypno-wheel. Tough, smart, and wiry, midwest exploded all over the globe. Minneapolis, a city known for producing the best, has taken no nap on these young men: the driest tone, the snappiest hooks. They are simply great and this recording captures a particularly good night. They shred 'til everyone's dead, including a nine-minute jam, god help us. Here's something to make you feel good about the world, to know that we have extended a strong art-handshake to our brothers and sisters in Italy. Vivia l'italia! Ciao, bella." -John Dwyer

Love In The Modern Age [LP]

New Vinyl: $22.98 Buy

MP3 Album:

$9.99

Download

For Love in the Modern Age, Josh Rouse focuses on the slick, polished sounds of 1980s adult oriented pop/rock. Specific touchstone albums he references as inspiration are the debut albums from The Blue Nile and The Style Council, and Roxy Music s, Avalon. The album is loaded with synth sounds of the era, flourishes of saxophone and female vocal harmonies that reflect the polished, suit and tie, modern pop sounds of the 80s. Standout tracks on the album include the title track, "Women and the Wind," "I'm Your Man," and "Businessman." While the sounds on the Josh Rouse produced album hark back to the early 1980s, the songs are pure Rouse - soothing hooks and deceptively intricate arrangements that feel familiar and effortless.
