MOCTAR, MDOU
Sousoume Tamachek
 cover
Sahel Sounds
Fantastic, multi-track studio album from this Tuareg guitar wiz Mdou Moctar. This album has a more mellow, almost trance inducing quality to it than his previous releases with cyclical acoustic guitar riffs & overdubbed vocals. Fans of Saharan guitar in general, TINARIWEN, GROUP DOUEH, AFOUS D'AFOUS etc.. will love this. RECOMMENDED.

LIVANSKIY, KEDR
Ariadna (ltd. Edition W/ Bonus 12") (w/ Download)
 cover
2MR
2017 release from Russia's KEDR LIVANSKIY continues the ideas from her "January Sun" EP, which puts melody over electro beats in the form of synths & LIVANSKIY's distinct, but not-aching-for-the-spotlight vocals. Livanskiy eschews software synths opting for vintage gear which definitely adds to the dreamlike, almost lo-fi sound to her expertly composed electronic pop. Hints of GROUPER's use of reverb & atmosphere, the Not Not Fun & 100% Silk labels, GLASS CANDY etc..., this will definitely be one a lot of year end lists this year. RECOMMENDED! **This limited edition version comes with a bonus 12" with two extra tracks!**

LIARS
Tfcf (red Vinyl, Ltd. Ed.) (w/ Download)
 cover
Mute
"Every Liars album sounds the same" said nobody ever. Angus Andrew has been at it with LIARS for about 15 years now & it's more or less a solo project for him now as the only other remaining member Aaron Hemphill bailed surprisingly during the recording. Andrew returned home to Australia to finish it & made one of the weirdest LIARS records yet. The album is pretty dark with songs built around heavily manipulated acoustic guitars, atonal electronics & blown-out beats. In a weird way, this kind of reminds of Paul McCartney's frenzied first album (in concept, not execution) if he had access to a laptop back then. Angus Andrew has baffled us once again!

New LP $21.99

GIGAN
Undulating Waves Of Rainbiotic :iridesence (2lp)
 cover
Willowtip
Fourth album of wormhole-death metal from Chicago's GIGAN is a truly mind-bending listen. Intricate work across all instruments but without being completely jarring like a lot of tech-death. This is thinking- man's death metal, for sure. Think GORGUTS, MITHRAS or DEATHSPELL OMEGA.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $22.99

CANNABIS CORPSE
Left Hand Pass (first Press, Ltd 650)
 cover
Season of Mist
Sure, CANNABIS CORPSE began life as a tiny bud on the much bigger MUNICIPAL WASTE plant, but this band has developed into quite the potent strain. Yeah, they're all about the Devil's Lettuce, but "Left Hand Pass" is seriously crushing & well-written death metal. Classic death; not too technical or drum-machine fast.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $21.99

CLIPSE
Til The Casket Drops
 cover
Get On Down
2009 album from the CLIPSE was released without all the hubbub that went along with 2006's "Hell Hath No Fury," & is the first of their albums that features production from other than the NEPTUNES (although CHAD & PHARRELL contribute 8 of the 13 tracks on this disc), but that's OK! MALICE & PUSHA T are still top lyricists, & the beats they got from DJ KHALIL & SEAN C work perfectly fine alongside their cocaine & street tales. Like their other albums, this comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! *** First time on vinyl! 2017 release! ***
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $19.99

DILLON & DIAMOND D
Black Tie Affair (ep, Ltd 500) (w/ Download)
 cover
Full Plate
Limited to 500 copies this vinyl only EP from DITC's Diamond D, & Dillon is all about the finer things. For fans of, as they call it, "that Boom-Bap with a bowtie."
Available at: All Stores
New LP $17.99

GERMAN OAK
Down In The Bunker (2lp)
 cover
Now Again
Official, double-LP reissue/remaster of this under- ground psych/prog album that hasn't been properly heard . . . until now! Now Again Records found all three members of the band & this reissue not only includes the bizarre story of the album itself, but also includes the full versions of two songs from the album, other rare & previously-unreleased songs & photos. Dark, atmospheric material that was recorded in a WWII bunker. An amazing addition to the Now Again Reserve catalog!
Available at: Milwaukee Ave. and Loop
New LP $51.99

MAIN SOURCE
Breaking Atoms (30th Anni, 2 Blue Lp) (remaster, W/ Bonus Trks)
 cover
Ingrooves
What you have in your hands now is one of the most classic records in Hip Hop. Here we have the Large Professor at the TOP of his game, lyrically & behind the boards, with Sir Scratch & K-Cu providing vibes & cuts to bolster the Queens MCs monster, meaning filled rhymes. Breaking Atoms didn't have a big radio single, & the group broke up after this, but this album is still incredible influential, with notable tracks like "Friendly Game of Baseball," & "Live at the Barbecue," the debut of one Nasty Nasir Jones. If you like 90s rap like ATCQ, DITC, or Gangstarr, this record will not let you down.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $21.99

RODINIA
Ex Anima (w/ Download)
 cover
Now Again
First album under the RODINA moniker for JAY WHITE- FIELD, who you might know from his completely- different-than-this peojects the WHITEFIELD BROTHERS, POETS OF RHYTHM, etc. This is straight-up Krautrock similar to the classics like CLUSTER or POPOL VUH.
Available at: Broadway and Loop
New LP $18.99

TOO SHORT
Life Is...
 cover
8th Records
Absolutely one of the most classic hip-hop albums of all time!! This is where SNOOP lifted his trademark "BEYOTCH" vocal tick & put Oakland hip-hop on the map. Essential listening!
Available at: All Stores
New LP $18.99

TOADIES
Lower Side Of Uptown (140g) (w/ Download)
 cover
Kirtland
Seventh album from the TOADIES is a pretty heavy affair. Varied & dynamic guitar rock from one of the most underrated bands of the last 20 years.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $13.99

DALEK
Endangered Philosophies (2lp)
 cover
Ipecac
"Endangered Philosopies" is the second album since DALEK reformed in 2015, & we're glad their reunion wasn't a one-and-done! This is the the epitome of head-phone hip-hop; their style the boom-bap equivalent of MY BLOODY VALENTINE's shoegaze rock. It's clear that multiple listens will be necessary to fully absorb "Endangered Philosophies'" layers of production & DALEK's dense rhymes.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $26.99

IMPALED NAZARENE
Tol Cormpt Norz Norz Norz (reissue)
 cover
Osmose
1992 debut album from these Finnish freaks finally reissued! The title translates to "All Shall Be Numbered Six Six Six," but their love of Satan is matched by their love of sex (see "Goat Perversion" or "The God (Symmetry of Penis)") & general filth. Dark, blasting, borderline punk rock black/death from this truly unique band. RECOMMENDED.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $21.99

IMPALED NAZARENE
Ugra Karma (reissue)
 cover
Osmose
Awesome reissue of IMPALED NAZARENE's second album, first released in 1993! These guys are basically a super-fast punk band, so they sound like black metal but also have a perverted side (see "The Horny & the Horned" or "Sadistic 666 / Under a Golden Shower") & a dark sense of humor. Legendary stuff on Osmose!
Available at: All Stores
New LP $21.99

BRAINIAC 5
We're Ready!
 cover
Reckless
Some of our customers might not be aware of the fact that Reckless had a label in the 80's & 90's with releases by bands such as BEVIS FROND, BLACK SUN ENSEMBLE & CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN. The label was reborn in 2014 with a CD compilation for BRAINIAC 5, a late 70's UK art-punk group fronted by Reckless owner Charles Taylor. The band has officially reformed in 2012 & this is their 3rd album since then. The group continues to explore the realm of post-punk & art rock with hints of PERE UBU, WIRE & SOFT BOYS with subtle hints of progressive & jazz mixed in. RECOMMENDED OF COURSE!

New CD $9.99

EYEHATEGOD
In The Name Of Suffering (2017 Reissue)
 cover
Emetic
2017 reissue of this sludge master- piece! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for aural sadists.
Available at: Milwaukee Ave. and Loop
New LP $19.99

IRON & WINE
Beast Epic (2lp, Loser Ed. Color Vinyl)) (w/ Bonus 12", Etched Side & Download)
 cover
Sub Pop
Sam Beam is back at Sub Pop as IRON & WINE & we're not sure if it was intentional or not, but he's also returned to the stripped-down sound that he started with at the label. Beam definitely hasn't run out of ideas after 6 albums & we think this is one of his strongest releases in years. We're picking up a serious 70's soft rock vibe here with hints of James Taylor & Paul Simon throughout. Great stuff here & RECOMMENDED. Deluxe edition comes on colored vinyl with a bonus 12" featuring bonus songs & demos & an etched side.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $26.99

GOGOL BORDELLO
Seekers & Finders (ltd Blue/white Vinyl)
 cover
Cooking Vinyl
2017 album from self-proclaimed "Gypsy Punks" GOGOL BORDELLO is high-energy & comes with revolution-ready lyricism. GOGOL BORDELLO is one of the few truly unique rock bands out there; the singular REGINA SPEKTOR makes a guest appearance on album opener "Did It All."
Available at: All Stores
New LP $24.99

CAGE THE ELEPHANT
Unpeeled (2lp, Orange, Scented Vinyl) (ltd. Ed. W/ Download)
 cover
RCA
21-song, 79-minute acoustic live album from CAGE THE ELEPHANT!
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $24.99

REVERORUM IB MALACHT
Ter Agios Numini
 cover
Ajna
This is the third album by this somewhat mysterious Swedish experimental black metal band. With hints of black metal, dark ambient, industrial, drone & harsh noise, R.I.M. has created some truly terrifying sounds with themes revolving around religion, specifically Catholicism. The aren't any lyrics that we can discern, instead when there is singing it's more evil sounding grunts & groans or what sounds like a monk singing in a cathedral. Imagine the noise-leaning black metal of ABRUPTUM, the more experimental side of BEHERIT & the atmosphere of LURKER OF CHALICE & you might be able to imagine the horror that is this record. CRAZY!
Available at: All Stores
New LP $15.99

PYRRHON
What Passes For Survival ("yellow Piss/olive" Vinyl)
 cover
Throatruiner
2017 album from New York weirdos PYRRHON is a whirl- wind of borderline free-jazz death metal. Chaotic, how- does-this-not-fall-apart grinding. Very intense stuff; not for the faint of heart. On Throatruiner Records.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $19.99

GOOD MORNING
Glory / Shawcross (w/ Download & Bonus) Shawcross/ Glory
 cover
Bedroom Suck
Two EPs by the duo known as GOOD MORNING combined on one LP with a digital download that includes extra single tracks. Lo-fi indie rock that reminds us of the early CAPTURED TRACKS releases, especially the lazy sounds of Mac Demarco & hints of ATLAS SOUND.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $18.99

DJ SHADOW
Mountain Has Fallen Ep
 cover
Mass Appeal
Cool little four-song 12-inch that follows DJ SHADOW's excellent "The Mountain Will Fall" LP features guest spots from NAS, DANNY BROWN & STEVEN PRICE!
Available at: Milwaukee Ave. and Loop
New LP $14.99

CONTAINERS
Self- Contained Self-contained
 cover
Manufactured
We were pretty amped on the BEACH BULLIES reissue on Manufactured a few years back & now comes this release by BEACH BULLIES' member James A. Smith's other group THE CONTAINERS. THE CONTAINERS only existed briefly in London in 1980 & managed to make a recording in a studio that also boasted recordings by SOFT BOYS (Robyn Hitchcock was a friend who sometimes performed with the group), THE RAINCOATS & Gary Numan. Some of these songs eventually became BEACH BULLIES songs but these versions feature shared male/female vocals that give the band their true character. Think post-VELVETS alt-rock with similarities to RAINCOATS, TV PERSONALITIES, B52s, DESPERATE BICYCLES etc... RECOMMENDED.
Available at: All Stores
New LP $17.99

BULKHEAD
Lunch Truck Ep
 cover
2MR
Fat, sequenced analog riffs with a bit of a 90's sound. This sort of reminds us of local hero Magas & other stuff on his Midwich label & it fits in well the other 2MR releases up to this point.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $8.99

RAINER MARIA
S/t (w/ Download)
 cover
Polyvinyl
Before RAINER MARIA broke up in 2006, they released a few records that became classics of the early 2000s emo scene. Since then their legend has only grown & now the band are back with their first new album in over 10 years. A person's life changes quite a bit in a decade & the members of RAINER MARIA have traveled the world, released some solo records & singer Kaia Fischer came out as trans, but similar to the reformed AMERICAN FOOTBALL, they've more or less picked up where they left off musically. Fans of their early work, SLEATER- KINNEY, VELOCITY GIRL, Elliott Smith, the Polyvinyl label in general will love this. RECOMMENDED!
Available at: All Stores
New LP $17.99

ENGINES
Obsolete (colored Vinyl)
 cover
Forge Again
Driving, rough-around-the-edges, melodic punk from Chicago's ENGINES, which features ex-members of STILL- WELL, HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE & COSTANZA. Think CASKET LOTTERY but with a female vocalist & you're in the ballpark. Great stuff on Forge Again Records!
Available at: Broadway
New LP $12.99

ALL OUT WAR
Give Us Extinction (colored Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Organized Crime
2017 album from New York's ALL OUT WAR proves why this band is one of the heaviest, ever. You know this band when you hear them: the perfect blend of NYHC & like, OBITUARY. Devastating, as always!
Available at: All Stores
New LP $15.99

MYCELIUM CLOAK
Infinity Suit
 cover
Self
Debut release from Chicago's MYCELIUM CLOAK is a lo-fi, one-mic-in-the-room kinda recording with several styles of savagery: the "fuck off" style of second- wave black metal, blasting grind, a little free- jazz noise, distorted vocals/everything. A real harsh treat!
Available at: All Stores
New Cassette $6.99
