The Animals. What can one say about the Animals? Out of sight? That’s old. That they fly? They’ve been flying since they began. That they’re great. This record proves it. Well, if one were looking for things to say, one could say that everything is better about this album, especially the recording of vocals and drums. But, of course, the only real question is, how is Eric? Eric is, of course, in orbit (he’s also the lead vocalist, for those of you who aren’t Animals fans). The whole of side one is an uninterrupted symphony of R&B. Just listen to the two versions of the absurdly great “C. C. Rider”. On the other hand (also on the other side, side two) is most of their psychedelic material. Compared to the previous Animals albums, this just seems to pack a little more punch than any of the others with the possible exception of Animal Tracks. Jenkins’s drumming really makes a difference in the overall sound. The group seems freer now, especially on the uptempo material (check “Shake, Rattle And Roll”). And Burdon’s vocals seem to be constantly improving, which is a crucial point. I can think of nothing he has done previously to equal “Tobacco Road” or “When I Was Young.” In any event, the fact is that this album rocks. And when the Animals rock, no one can touch them. My one hope is that there is enough material in the can to put out another album as good as this one. Limited to 2000 copies worldwide.

In 2017, Detroit’s Stef Chura released her debut album, Messes, to widespread acclaim. Stereogum wrote, "In Messes, you can hear the idea that DIY rock music can be as warm and friendly and melodic as any other kind of music.” Pitchfork called Stef’s lyrics "poetic and sharply rendered,” and said the album "falls just right, like a stretched-out sweater with holes in the collar.” Since Messes came out, Stef toured relentlessly, signed with Saddle Creek, and even found time to record some songs with Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest fame. Those songs can be found on the Record Store Day exclusive 7” Degrees / Sour Honey, available April 21st at your favorite independent record store.

The producer’s own mixes – recently rediscovered - of his seminal EP, expanded with bonus tracks into a 2LP set, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.
When Ruff Draft saw its initial release in 2003, J Dilla possessed production skills on par with anyone in hip-hop – technically and creatively. “At the top of his game,” says longtime friend and collaborator, Karriem Riggins. After years of building while modestly deferring to others of both greater and lesser notoriety, Dilla finally completed the first solo endeavor on his own label, entirely on his own terms. The significance of such an autonomous success often gets overlooked, and partly accounts for why Ruff Draft is one of the lesser-referenced entries in Dilla’s oeuvre. “It’s a mysterious little project,” says his mother, Maureen Yancey. “But out of his entire career, that was the happiest time.”

Prior to recording the EP, Dilla found himself at a crossroads. Estranged from his label, MCA, and separated from the mother of his youngest daughter, frustration abounded both personally and professionally. Dilla spent parts of 2002 and 2003 working on an album for MCA that featured his rapping over contributions from other producers with whom he had connected and whose music he respected. At the time, he was known primarily for his beats, yet reviled for his MCing by most anyone not from his hometown of Detroit. The project was to be an intentional freak of the industry.

The project would go on to spur his collaborative album with Madlib, Jaylib, and would first showcase the template that he would take to his greatest heights with 2006’s Donuts. The Stones Throw reissue of Ruff Draft from 2008 featured remixes of the songs from the album, done without Dilla’s involvement. This version of the album takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixes of the album and restores his vision for the project. “Straight from the mothafuckin’ cassette,” as he phrased the sound he was going for on the EP’s intro. It is buttressed by unreleased tracks and is presented in two versions: LP one is the EP as it was originally released; LP 2 is the alternate version that Dilla had for the project. Author Ronnie Reese expands upon his original liner notes to further tell Dilla’s story, in a booklet complete with never before published photographs from the Ruff Draft photo session.

California

Vinyl: $18.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $5.99 Download

​The California EP pays homage to Wes’ first full-length release, Florida, where he spent much of his youth. The sonics on California share a similar tone: slow, vibey, & melancholic, a bit of a departure from the sound he has been known for in recent years. The vibe of the EP is somewhat dark, contrary to the warm and carefree lifestyle one would expect of someone living in California. This may very well be a reflection of the bleak underside of fame & excess in Hollywood​.​ The EP is much more than just a handful of tracks​; it's an introspective body of work.  Diplo has recruited industry heavyweights and newcomers alike, including Santigold, Dram, Lil’ Yachty, MØ, Goldlink and more, as well as LA-based artist, February James, who was commissioned to create inspired portraits of each of the artists that appear on the EP, housed in the gatefold jacket.

Steve Kalinich is best known for his association with The Beach Boys, with whom he collaborated on songs such as “Little Bird” and “Be Still.” His songwriting partnership with Brian Wilson extends into his solo work, including “A Friend Like You,” the duet between Brian and Paul McCartney. His lyrics have always been imbued with a strong affinity for the transcendental, and this album is no exception, with the music ranging from dark Jim Carroll/Leonard Cohen-ish lamentations (“Things You Cannot Control”) to bluesy r&b rock (“Here With You”) and emphatic rockers (“13th Level” and the title track). Scrambled Eggs is the follow-up record to his first solo album, A WORLD OF PEACE which was produced by Brian Wilson in 1967. It features a dozen new songs by Stevie, cowritten with friends like Dylan LeBlanc, Tara Holloway, Ellis Hooks, Robert “Butch” Johnson, and producer Jon Tiven. Stevie’s poetic sensibilities shine forth, and he is joined by singing partners Black Francis, Bekka Bramlett, Ellis Hooks and the aforementioned Dylan LeBlanc and Tara Holloway. Musicians include Mickey Curry, Todd Snare and Shannon Pollard on drums and percussion, Sally Tiven on bass, Robert “Butch” Johnson and Jon Tiven on guitar and Tiven on most everything else.

Reissue of the only prog LP Takoma Records ever released -- the 1974 slab by L.A.'s Laser Pace. The album's title, Granfalloon, is a term created by the late Kurt Vonnegut to describe a bunch of people who pretend to be an affinity group without having any actual affinity for each other. We're uncertain if that is suppose to refer to factions inside Laser Pace, but no matter. The album is probably the strangest pieces of wax dripped by Takoma (apart from Charlie Nothing, natch) and seems wildly out of synch with the label's presumed focus. But is a goddamn monster of odd charm, no two ways about it.

Self-titled debut album of experimental band Latin Playboys. First time on vinyl. Latin Playboys is a musical group comprising David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake, active in the 1990s. The band began with a series of demo recordings made by Hidalgo on a home cassette tape 4-track machine. The demos were intended for Hidalgo's main group, Los Lobos, but producer/keyboardist Froom thought the demos were interesting enough on their own to justify a new band. With Los Lobos member Pérez, and Froom's frequent production partner Blake, Latin Playboys was formed.

The group released two albums, Latin Playboys, in 1994, and Dose, in 1999. The songs "Manifold de Amour" and "Forever Night Shade Mary," both from the 1994 self-titled debut album, are featured on the soundtrack album for the 1995 film Desperado.

Postales (Original Soundtrack)

Vinyl: $24.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Original soundtrack featuring Daptone alumni, Menahan Street Band and Budos Band. "Postales is a cross-cultural love story shot in the streets of Cusco, Peru in which a postcard-selling street kid encounters an American Tourist girl, and follows her back to her hotel, setting off a chain of events that culminates with a stolen wallet, young love, and a family losing its home." The soundtrack provided by Brooklyn Afro Latin Funk outfits Menahan and Budos Band paints just as nice a picture as the film with sometimes gritty, slightly menacing production. The signature horn section drives the tracks and is easily one of the best Deep Latin Soul records from the last decade. Colemine Records, being known for their incredible 45 catalog of modern Afro Beat and Funk, released Postales as their first full length. If you are a fan of Truth & Soul and Daptone, this is for you. Recommended.

Sir George Martin, known as “the Fifth Beatle”, is one of the greatest producers of all-time and recorded a dozen international hit singles. It was a natural progression for George to write for films - two of which are featured here. “THEME ONE” is the exciting instrumental George was commissioned to write for BBC’s Radio I. George adores Bach and these pieces are an opportunity for him to indulge in his admiration for this great composer. “THE BOND SUITE” consists of different arrangements of the James Bond theme and a groovy version of Wings’ classic “Live and Let Die”. Beatles to Bond And Bach is a small glimpse of an exceptionally gifted person. “THE BEATLES SUITE” is focused on the orchestral sounds of some Beatle classics.  Limited Edition of 2.500 Individually Numbered Copies on 180g Blue Vinyl

Every living creature must face the will and judgment of time. Ancient Greeks personified time in the form of the titan Kronos, father of Zeus, and ancient Egyptians celebrated Heh as an abstraction of endless years. Famously, William Shakespeare lamented humanity's immutable fate as "time's subjects" in Henry IV. Mastodon ponders the nature of time on their eighth album Emperor of Sand. Threading together the myth of a man sentenced to death in a majestically malevolent desert, the Atlanta quartet conjures the grains of a musical and lyrical odyssey slipping quickly through a cosmic hourglass. Emperor of Sand is pressed on full color picture disc vinyl for Record Store Day 2018.
