Since their founding in 2015, Swedish post-punk band Viagra Boys have made a name for themselves burning up stages around the world. There’s a little Iggy Pop spit and seethe, a David Yow drunken stumble, and a bite of Nick Cave’s haunted bark. Add a dash of motorik groove, a pinch of post-punk grime, and a dose of no wave howl.
On their debut release, BAD OPERATION navigates an exciting mixture of speedy, upbeat numbers and laid back grooves. Fast tunes like “Perilous”, “Brain” & “Bagel Rooks” brim with energy that would make Mike Park proud. Eccentric samples and overdubs on songs like “Kinda Together”, “Siren’s Call”, and “Baby In Arms” create a sound inspired by dub manipulators like Lee “Scratch” Perry. The group has clearly hit their stride on these sessions, recorded in the comfort of their practice space by lead guitarist Brian Pretus. BAD OPERATION features members of prominent current and past New Orleans punk/ska groups, such as PEARS, All People, and Fatter Than Albert.

William Basinski’s reputation as the foremost producer of profound meditations on death and decay has long been established, but on his new album, Lamentations, he transforms operatic tragedy into abyssal beauty.

You Might be Happy Someday is a smeared window into the (kindly) cynical thoughts of a romantic misanthrope. Like the work of other U.S. depresso-pop purveyors East River Pipe, The Reds, Pinks and Purples’ mini-album is the kind of record that is both unsettling and comforting. When you’re four drinks deep and you’ve worn your Smiths records out, You Might Be Happy Someday is on deck to have wine spilled on it while you dance alone in the kitchen.

Now, in a time of uncertainty, Belgium’s NASTY is bringing the certainty of crushing sounds with their Century Media debut full-length, “Menace”. According to the band, “Menace” partially manifested itself during these globally turbulent times. “When the pandemic started it hit us all pretty bad during the recording and writing process. We wanted to write about the craziness in this world. This world is a menace for you, but you are also in danger of becoming a menace to this world through the input given by it.”
ESP-Disk present a vinyl reissue of Henry Grimes Trio’s The Call, originally released in 1966. It has occasionally been assumed that Henry Grimes got this December 28, 1965 recording date as a reward for his long service in the avant-garde of jazz. Having already honed his musical conception with a varied range of players, from Benny Goodman and Arnett Cobb to Lee Morgan, Gerry Mulligan, and Sonny Rollins to McCoy Tyner, Steve Lacy, Albert Ayler — including Spirits Rejoice (ESPDISK 1020CD/LP)–, Don Cherry, and Cecil Taylor (to name just a few), the service was certainly there, but he got this gig fully on his merits.
Legendary Sun Ra bassist (Ronnie Boykins 1935-1980) stepped out on his own for his first and only release as a leader on The Will Come, Is Now. He was invited by ESP in 1964 to record his own album, and in February 1974, he told ESP that he was finally ready, and the session took place later that month. This recording not only features Boykins’s solid abilities as a bassist, including his marvelous arco work, but also his talents as a composer and arranger. In addition, one is treated to an all-natural bass sound, a rare sound during this particular era of jazz history. In septet format, Boykins’s six originals create a variety of moods and textures that not only evoke the music of Sun Ra but also reflect Boykins’s own sensibilities as an artist.

Amorino is the first solo album released by Isobel Campbell following her departure from Belle and Sebastian. The album was originally released on October 7, 2003 on Snowstorm, and has long been out of print especially on vinyl. The album is full of autumnal melancholia and delicate arrangements with Isobel’s breathy and fragile vocal floating over the instrumentation. It’s a natural extension of her work in Belle and Sebastian and two albums as the Gentle Waves.

If you don’t count their archival vault digging exercise in 2013, it’s been no less than 14 years since we last heard a record from the mighty Bent. Expert purveyors of sophisticated downtempo meanderings with depth beyond the average coffee table enterprise, their original run in the early 00s was peerless and oh so easy on the ears. Now they’re back like a particularly chilled bolt out of the blue with a whole new album for you to melt into. Existing Bent fans will certainly be satisfied with the sound on offer, while their mellow and melodious approach enjoys renewed relevance in the wake of these ambient-friendly times.
Limited Edition 2x Purple Vinyl
The Moonlit Branches of Powder is a compilation of two demos Nocturnal Effigy recorded in the mountains of Montana. First demo is tracks 1 – 5 and second are tracks 6 – 10.
Recorded directly to tape. These demos are themed a “wampyric”. A take on the vampirish view of its themes. Loneliness, cold nature, towering mountains, twinkling streams. You could call it Wampyric Dungeon Synth.
“Rap legend Nas has announced his highly-anticipated forthcoming album King’s Disease. The album is entirely produced by Hit-Boy, and Hit-Boy and Gabriel ‘G Code’ Zardes serve as the album’s co-executive producers. ‘Ultra Black’ is an anthemic, uplifting reminder of the unignorable contributions made by the Black community. A testament of the times, ‘Ultra Black’ is a statement to being unapologetically Pro-Black, and thus pro-humanity. While the color black often connotes feelings of darkness, Nas reimagines the term to represent its richness, complexity, and profound beauty. An electrifying phrase honoring the Black community as the life force of culture, the term extends beyond race, class, or creed. It is symbolic of the fortitude, power, legacy, and interconnectedness of all people worldwide. Just as black absorbs all light, ‘Ultra Black’ represents the unification of all people, spotlighting Black joy and the promising future ahead.”
Like a modern day Alice in Wonderland, Pearl Charles beckons you to slip and fall into her world. You’ll find yourself drifting with the tide – the ups, downs, and all-arounds of a life well-lived and well- loved. From start to finish you float along a reflective river, dancing in your own/the personal / private Studio 54 of your living room, decked out in sequins or nothing at all. It’s a feel good album that asks us to actually take the time to feel good. Magic Mirror follows the cartography of a girl, growing into a woman, as she moves through life from singledom, to the expansive space of self-reflection, and the newly appreciated perspective of coming back together again and finding yourself, this time with someone new. A love letter to the self, a dance party for life, and at times as introspective as your best trip, Pearl takes us on a journey that, like life and love, has the tendency to surprise, delight, and leave you breathless. All you have to do is let yourself enjoy it.
This 4xLP set distills the very best of the subscription-only digital album series A Dream in the Dark into an epic chronological live compilation that doubles as an Okkervil River songbook, presenting the greatest hits of Will Sheff’s celebrated band in live, alternate, expanded and re-imagined versions, as captured in sweaty dive bars, lavish concert halls, and festival stages across the world.

NOME NOMA is a new language standing at the crossroads of Glam Punk and Synth Pop. Anglophone and Francophone united in their desire to loosen up a province that’s still searching for its identity. They are pioneers and free electrons innovating beyond the fringe on these 13 tracks that are previously unreleased or literally impossible to get a hold since the 1980s!

Jugoton Funk Vol.1, a first of its kind, celebrates the pioneer years of funk-infused music released by Jugoton. While in pursuit of these treasures all over the Balkan region and beyond, the compilation’s selectors, Dr. Smeđi Šećer & Višeslav Laboš, both active as DJ’s and crate diggers from the sole beginnings of the ex-Yu craze, wanted to capture the authentic and idiosyncratic funk sound of Jugoton and Yugoslavia. So here it is, comb your mustache, light up a fat one, turn up the amplifier and headbang away to these amazing tunes remastered from original master tapes dug out of the Jugoton vaults (now Croatia Records).

Adversity does not incite the best feelings: frustration, anger, fear, anxiety – nothing unusual for today’s world. The members of MOURN know quite a bit about these setbacks, but a latent belief persists within: the negative will eventually become positive. It’s the belief of facing and overcoming a problem. To come out reinforced: the wonder of resilience. It’s the belief of what they are worth, whatever people say. It’s the name they chose for their new album: Self Worth.
Inspired by Pebbles, Killed By Death, Soul Jazz and Numero Group compilations, Excavations is a series dedicated to compiling forgotten music from the 1970s – 1990s that has a connection to Captured Tracks’ sound and aesthetic. Much like the Cleaners from Venus, the Wake, and Saäda Bonaire reissues we’ve put out, Excavations releases will bridge the past to our current roster and showcase the kinds of sounds that inspire us.
Olafur Arnalds new album, some kind of peace is his most revealing and vulnerable work to date. Within, you’ll find a self-confessed perfectionist grappling with the messier realities of everyday life: the possibilities of love, of settling down, and how to navigate all of that during a global pandemic (the album was half-written prior to lockdown, and completed at Arnalds’ harbour studio in downtown Reykjavik). What’s emerged on some kind of peace is a record about letting your guard down, and ultimately what it means to be alive.

Sweet Trip’s third album You Will Never Know Why (2009) still sounds new and unlike anything else. Laden with bossa, latin, electronic and shoegaze influences, male/female vocal interplay, immaculate acoustic guitars, pulsing bass lines, complex rhythms, odd time signatures, lush strings and imaginative sound effects, there’s a lot going on with the Sweet Trip sound; however, you couldn’t possibly tire of it. The songs are always so refreshing.
Ken Kesey’s Ultra Rare 1966 studio recording of the Acid Test with The Grateful Dead. Legendary documentation of the 1965-66 Bay Area Acid Test scene from 14 hours of the actual trip (recorded in a studio).

Limited Edition of 1000 on Transparent Yellow Highlighter Colored Vinyl.

I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW) is the new project led by frontman, multi-instrumentalist, and mastermind Dallon Weekes. Dallon wrote what would become Razzmatazz out of his own studio in Salt Lake City, UT. Working with producer Tim Pagnotta, he fine-tuned and finalized the vision in early 2020.
An absolute winner of an album. Like a mix of The Primitives really early on with the minimal nature of Beat Happening. It sounds like it could fall apart at any moment and it’s all the better for it.
The planets align this October as the mighty Sun Ra Arkestra, under the direction of the maestro Marshall Allen, release their first studio album in over twenty years, ‘Swirling’. Recorded at Rittenhouse Soundworks in Philadelphia, the new recording represents the continuation of a heartfelt rebirth of the Arkestra under Allen’s guidance since Sun Ra left the planet in 1993, gaining new generations of followers from their regular touring across the globe. With a big band line-up featuring long-standing Arkestra members including Danny Ray Thompson (RIP), Michael Ray, Vincent Chancey, Knoel Scott, Cecil Brooks, Atakatune (RIP), Elson Nascimento and Tyler Mitchell, the album is a full-blooded celebration of Sun Ra’s legacy.
A vibrant electronic fusion of lounge, jazz, and disco is maybe not the first (or fifth) thing you would expect to hear from one of the world’s most renowned modern composers and ambient tape loop pioneers, but upon first listen, it makes so much sense that one wonders why it didn’t happen sooner.
The World Only Ends When You Die is a cinematic psych folk opera about someone who finds themselves incapable of coping with a new uncertain reality that followed a near death experience. Under a spell of mixed wisdom by several “trickster guides” hailing from the future, this confused person leaps back into the world of the dead only to spend a hero’s journey climbing out, returning to this strange existence of America in 2020.
With his wonderful new album Stardust, Luka Kuplowsky makes a refreshing argument for the relevance of acoustic music as a place to hold thought; an open space to place impeccably chosen words, ideas, and images.
