Digitally remixed and remastered. Nominated for the 2010 Mercury Music Prize. Reflecting the urgency and claustrophobia of city life, the record dispensed with the acoustic, folky and pastoral influences of Weller's recent work and introduced more jagged rock styles with angry, urban and metallic influences - Diamond Dogs, Low-period Bowie riffs. Very experimental, mostly short songs but with a sense of adventure - often packing a suite's worth of twists into one song. Jam fans will love the tightly wound collaboration with Bruce Foxton on 'Fast Car/Slow Traffic', the dense dangerous heartbeat and militaristic sound collage of '7&3 Is the Strikers Name' (featuring My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields).

Sammy Hagar and the Circle have added some hard-rock heft to David Bowie's "Heroes," the latest song they've released from their quarantine recording sessions and the lead single from their upcoming Lockdown 2020 album.

Guitarist Vic Johnson leans into the song's riff and conjures washes of sound for the verses, while Hagar wails the vocals in the way only he can, and bassist Michael Anthony and drummer Jason Bonham keep the track on course with a steady rhythm. All proceeds from the song will go to food banks around the U.S.

Lockdown 2020 contains songs that the group recorded this year while in isolation after the Covid-19 pandemic made touring impossible. In addition to one original, "Funky Feng Shui," they tackled tunes by the Who, Bob Marley, AC/DC, Buffalo Springfield, Little Richard, and, of course, Van Halen and Hagar's solo career. The album will be available on January 8th, and preorders include "Heroes" as an instant-gratification song.

Nuclear Assault was a NYC thrash metal band that formed in 1984. They were one of the main bands of the genre to emerge from the East Coast along with Overkill, Whiplash, Toxik, Carnivore, and Anthrax. "Game Over" was their debut album on Combat Records. Leaving Anthrax to their destiny, bassist (and co-founder) Dan Lilker formed Nuclear Assault, taking 'Thrax roadie John Connelly with him on vocals and guitar. On Game Over, whilst drawing from Lilker's contributions to Fistful of Metal and Speak English or Die, Nuclear Assault debuts a delightfully ugly thrash, crossover and speed metal hybrid dripping with humour and 80s paranoia.

Psycho is the second in a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone's greatest soundtrack music. Each collection centres on a different movie genre, together they allow the listener to rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie composer of all time. The Maestro. This collection is dedicated to Morricone's work with Italian directors spanning the late 1960s up to the 1980s. These scores accompany some darkly dramatic films, some veering into the realms of horror. The music highlights the psychological tension within the films and contrasts with his work in the USA during the same era. This is Morricone where he feels truly at home, working with the nuances and drama of the Italian psyche as laid bare by Italian filmmakers. Starting 70 years ago as an arranger for the piece Mamma Bianca, Ennio Morricone is the emperor of scores and soundtracks. Morricone has always been a huge influence for the likes of Hans Zimmer, Danger Mouse, Muse, Metallica and many more musicians. He's one of the most successful composers of all-time, selling over 70 million records and winning dozens of awards. Psycho on black vinyl includes a 4-page insert with liner notes written by Claudio Fuiano. The gatefold sleeve contains a red-spot varnish on the outside and images of iconic movie posters on the inside.

Lounge is the third in a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone's greatest soundtrack music. Each collection centres on a different movie genre, together they allow the listener to rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie composer of all time. The Maestro. This collection was announced before Ennio Morricone passed away on July 6, 2020. We'll continue to release the series to honour this great composer. The term Lounge Music is not one that Ennio Morricone would have heard at the time he was composing these pieces for the movies that they enhanced, but it is one has been retrospectively applied to a certain type of music, and it is a style that Morricone has contributed a great deal towards. Lounge refers to a type of easy listening music that began to be popular in the 1950s and developed right through the 1960s and into the 1970s. This was sophisticated music for an adult audience. Lounge music combined it's American influences with music that was popular outside the USA suchas Latin, Hawaiian, Polynesian, French, and many others. This was an era that was inspired by new inventions. Lounge mimicked the space-age sound effects of the time and the advent of stereophonic technology allowed spatial audio techniques to be used to full effect. This collection is not about a specific genre of music for film, it is a celebration of Lounge style pieces by Morricone that are capable of evoking in the listener thoughts of easy living, sophistication, romantic moods, and the excitement of a 1950s cocktail lounge or a 1960s nightclub. Starting 70 years ago as an arranger for the piece Mamma Bianca, Ennio Morricone is the emperor of scores and soundtracks. Morricone has always been a huge influence for the likes of Hans Zimmer, Danger Mouse, Muse, Metallica and many more musicians. He was one of the most successful composers of all-time, selling over 70 million records and winning dozens of awards. Lounge on black vinyl includes a 4-page insert with liner notes written by Claudio Fuiano. The gatefoldsleeve contains a velvet spot varnish on the outside and images of iconic movie posters on the inside.

Dungen

Ii

$19.98
With their second album Dungen moved from a sound deeply rooted in Swedish folk music towards more psychedelia and 70's pop. This missing link between the sparse debut and the world wide break through Ta Det Lugnt moves through 60's and 70's prog, psych, pop and folk with soaring flutes, woodsy violins, wicked fuzz guitars and frenetic jazz-drums. The record was originally released in 2002 under the name Stadsvandringar and a slightly different version got a very limited vinyl release as Dungen 2. II collects all tracks from Stadsvandringar and Dungen 2 as well as a single-track never available on vinyl all remastered by the original producer Mattias Glav. Dungen's music has expanded sonic boundaries all through the 2000s and II lets you explore both the butterfly light side as well as the heavier introspective aspects of a groundbreaking, yet retrospective band.

Limited cream coolored vinyl LP pressing. The 1970 debut album from Kool and the Gang scored a couple of hits with 'The Gangs Back Again' and the title cut, but more importantly, it heralded the arrival of what was to become a juggernaut on the R&B scene. This all-instrumental record is years away from the commercial successes of 'Jungle Boogie' and 'Celebration,' and a few light years away stylistically, too. But that unique mixture of jazz, funk, and R&B punctuated by those tremendous horn arrangements (and some great drum breaks) that characterizes Kool and the Gang at it's best is here in full force. That's why original copies of this record go for a 'kool' sum. For it's first U.S. vinyl reissue in decades, and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this R&B masterpiece, we've pressed up 1250 copies in 'creamy' vinyl. A funk classic you need to check out if you haven't heard it lately! R.I.P. Ronald Bell.

Limited double pink colored vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. On October 11, 2010, Brainfeeder released the debut album by a 23 year old ex-skater, painter and music producer from Chino Hills called Teebs (real name Mtendere Mandowa). The title Ardour means great enthusiasm, love or passion and was a fitting descriptor for his inherently warm, lushly textured beats. It's an undisputed classic in the Brainfeeder canon and more widely considered an essential chapter in the ever-evolving puzzle of the global "beat scene". Brainfeeder and Teebs are celebrating the 10th anniversary with a limited special edition reissue of this landmark record. Features six previously unreleased bonus tracks.

Soft-spoken with the look of a slightly disaffected 1950s matinee idol, Aaron Frazer possesses a unique voice that's both contemporary and timeless. On Introducing... - his debut solo album produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, co-released on Easy Eye Sound and Dead Oceans - Aaron melds mid-'60s soul with Auerbach's particular sensibilities ('Over You'), songs with a message in the key of Gil Scott-Heron ('Bad News'), and uplifting tales of love told through a blend of disco, gospel, and doo-wop ('Have Mercy').The Brooklyn-based, Baltimore-raised songwriter first came into the international spotlight as multi-instrumentalist and colead singer of Durand Jones & The Indications, but he's more than a revivalist act. "I didn't want Introducing... to be an exact recreation of an era or a style," Frazer says. "I'm excited to keep breaking some of the expectations around what exactly I'm supposed to be artistically and musically, or what this scene as a whole can be." On Introducing..., Aaron expertly calibrates consciousness-raising and the desire to be enveloped by love. Where previous records were written in a partial state of turmoil, Aaron's debut LP shows maturation and range. Introducing... is both loving and gracious, critical without losing hope, and a showcase of a young artist on a seriously soulful ascent.
