Steven Wilson’s TAPE EXPERIMENTS 1985-1986

9th Nov 10 (Tue) Leave a comment

Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson is always putting out something… this week, he announced he’s making available Tape Experiments 1985-1986 on vinyl via Tone Float.

It was originally intended as a pre-order bonus to his Insurgentes dvd movie release (but withdrawn in favor of a much more recent piece of music), Steven Wilson decided to make his two and four track tape experiments from 1985/1986 available via Soundcloud (free legal download link).

Those tracks are now being released as 180 gram black vinyl album, entitled Tape Experiments 1985/1986.  In tie with the flaws of the original grimy cassettes they were taken from, the album is designed with the 70s vinyl bootleg records in mind (and in particular the legendary takrl label), complete with an insert cover.  The release date is November 29, 2010, and the album is available exclusively from the Tonefloat store.

Introduction to Elliott Smith

26th Oct 10 (Tue) Leave a comment

Next week (Nov 2nd), a new Introduction to Elliott Smith release comes out.  There aren’t any new songs, but it’s being put out digitally, on CD, and on vinyl, too.  That, in and of itself, means I need to get it… as I have all of his albums on vinyl… can’t stop… :)

More importantly, if you don’t know any Elliott Smith, this would be the album to get.  You will soon fall in love.

XO,

Mondo Cane on Vinyl

24th Oct 10 (Sun) Leave a comment

One of the best records out this year is Mike Patton‘s Mondo Cane.  You may know Mike Patton for Faith No More, Mr Bungle, or other avant-garde projects… well, Mondo Cane was recorded at a series of European performances, this album features traditional Italian pop songs as well as a rendition of Ennio Morricone’s “Deep Down.” Sung in Italian, Patton worked with a full orchestra and choir to create the unique new sound.  There will only be 5,000 made of the triple-gatefold 180g vinyl.

It comes out November 22nd, and it’s available for pre-order NOW on Amazon.

David Bazan’s Christmas 2010 7″ vinyl

11th Oct 10 (Mon) 1 comment

It’s October… leaves are starting to change, school is in full swing, days are getting even shorter, and David Bazan‘s annual Christmas 7″ vinyl is up for pre-order… starting with the Pedro the Lion days (2002’s The First Noel 7″), it’s become an indie rock tradition to get your mits on the meloncholy holiday tunes pressed to wax from Bazan.

For 2010, the songs are “WISH MY KIDS WERE HERE” and “I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY.”  Suicide Squeeze Records has it – limited to 1000 copies (200 Orange, 400 Opaque Red, 400 Opaque Yellow). This 7-inch EP opens with a Bazan original, a heartbreaker of a track titled, “Wish My Kids Were Here.” The flip revisits an old favorite, Longfellow’s “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” an update on a song he first recorded/released, in 2002, at the start of the series.

ORDER HERE:

John Zorn THE DREAMERS on vinyl(!!)

2nd Oct 10 (Sat) 2 comments

So, there was a hint a few months ago about a vinyl release from Tzadik… my hunch was that it would be John Zorn / The Dreamers O’o release (out on CD in 2009).  Well, posted on Tzadik graphic artist Hueng-Hueng “Chippy” Chin’s Chippy Design flickr site yesterday was this…

“The Dreamers vinyl”
(click for larger)

It’s available for pre-order at Amazon under the title Dreamers – The Gentle Side… out Nov 23rd, 2010.

Update (10/8): the picture disc…

Here’s the latest, lo-fi video from Hoquiam (Damien and Drake Jurado)… Zombies of the Sea:

The vinyl-or-mp3-only, self-titled debut by Hoquiam is available on St. Ives/Secretly Canadian.  That release and Damien’s solo Saint Bartlett rank in my faves this year.

Sufjan Stevens – The Age of Adz

26th Aug 10 (Thu) 1 comment

Last week they announced the All Delighted People EP. And the week before the fall tour was announced. And today, Asthmatic Kitty announced the upcoming release of The Age of Adz (pronounced Odds), the first song-based full-length from Sufjan Stevens since 2005’s Illinois.

8/27 update: Preview of “I Walked” HERE.

http://asthmatickitty.com/the-age-of-adz

The Age of Adz tracklist
1. Futile Devices – 2:11
2. Too Much – 6:44
3. Age of Adz – 8:00
4. I Walked – 5:01 preview
5. Now That I’m Older – 4:56
6. Get Real Get Right – 5:10
7. Bad Communication – 2:24
8. Vesuvius – 5:26
9. All for Myself – 2:55
10. I Want To Be Well – 6:27
11. Impossible Soul – 25:35

The Age of Adz will drop on October 12th (CD, MP3) with a double-LP following on November 9th. For the next three weeks you can pre-order the CD or LP, and receive an MP3 download on September 28th, two weeks before the release date.

Per Asthmatic Kitty:

It’s much too soon to cast descriptive lots, but we can say the new album sounds nothing like the All Delighted EP (although it shares similar themes of love, loss, and the apocalypse). Nor is this new album built around any conceptual underpinning (no odes to states, astrology, or urban expressways). We can say it shows an extensive use of electronics (banjos and acoustic guitars give way to drum machines and analog synthesizers), and an obsession with cosmic fantasies (space, heaven, aliens, love), to create an explicit pop-song extravaganza, augmented by heavy orchestration, and maybe even a few danceable moments. Enjoy Your Rabbit meets the BQE. But with songs. Verse, chorus, bridge, backbeat. Gated reverb. Space echo. Get your boogey on. The ‘Adz’ of the title loosely refers to the apocalyptic paintings of outsider artist Royal Robertson (1930-1997), whose work is used for the album cover, interior design, and as general inspiration for the tone of the album.”

Wow… 2010 is the Year of the Sufjan.

Goddamn Electric Bill – Jazz (vinyl)

22nd Aug 10 (Sun) Leave a comment

Jason Torbert, aka Goddamn Electric Bill, is putting out his fourth album soon… this time on vinyl, and this time with our help.  He’s started a campaign via Kickstarter to gain enough pre-order support to make the vinyl happen.

There are several different packages including vinyl only, vinyl + bsides, vinyl+ bsides + CD, et cetera.  He needs to raise $1,500 by Sept 17th.  He’s about half way there as of now, but the project won’t happen if he doesn’t raise enough.  For those not in the know about GdEB, it’s a fantastic melodic, organic electronic soundscape.  Check out some tunes on MySpace or his video for “Ten Thousand Years” here:

I pitched in… I hope you dig the music and do the same.  Let’s make GdEB’s Jazz album on vinyl a reality!

Wussy’s 2010 plans

15th Jan 10 (Fri) Leave a comment

From the Wussy camp’s website…

We are gearing up for a busy winter and spring so keep your ears peeled. Right now we’re planning spring tour dates and working on a new record. We’ll have a single (vinyl-only) on Shake It Records coming out this spring as part of their Dangerous Highway series, a tribute to Eddie Hinton. The A-Side is our take on the classic “Breakfast in Bed” made famous by Dusty Springfield. More news on that soon. The Drive By Truckers and Greg Dulli 45’s are out now (see shakeitrecords.com for more info).

In the meantime, we’re also working on a live album and a collection of Wussy remixes from other artists.

In other news, Wussy’s self-titled album was #10 on Christgau’s 2009 Dean’s List!
www.wussymusic.com

Cool!  I’m looking forward to any new recorded music and touring from this great band!

Nellie McKay is adorable

14th Oct 09 (Wed) Leave a comment

As Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin would say… Nellie McKay‘s latest is frickin’ sweet.  It came out on Tuesday (10/13/09), and its 13 tracks are great!  You can hear a glimpse streaming over at nelliemckay.com.  Here’s a promo “making of” video (click picture):

Normal As Blueberry Pie is Nellie’s Doris Day tribute album with the quite cute album cover.  You can also get some cute (and quite campy) wallpapers over on her official page:

Slight gripes… I bought it on CD & vinyl and then found out that Barnes & Noble’s version of the CD has a bonus track (“I Want to Be Happy“) and the album only version on iTunes had a different bonus track (“I’ll Never Smile Again“).  Eff me!  I hate you, big label Universal Music Group (you suck)!
