DON CHERRY – Cherry Jam LP (Gearbox)
A nice reissue by Gearbox of these 1965 recordings of Don Cherry from Danish national radio. Three Don Cherry originals are included along with a cover of the song “You Took Advantage of Me.”
EYEHATEGOD – A History of Nomadic Behavior LP/CD (Century Media) limited evergreen color vinyl or black
The Louisiana sludge lords EYEHATEGOD return with their first new record in 7 years. Tons of nasty riffs & odd time signatures that make us think of SAINT VITUS & even BLACK FLAG at times. Fans won’t be disappointed with this riff fest!
GANG OF FOUR – 77-81 5LP/TAPE box set (Matador)
Amazing box set features remastered versions of the classic albums “Entertainment!” & “Solid Gold”, an LP of singles, a great sounding live LP from 1980 that’s exclusive to this box & a cassette with 26 outtakes & rarities that have never been released before. The box also includes a 100 page book. RECOMMENDED!
MICROPHONES – Foghorn Tape LP (P.W. Elverum & Sun)
Here’s a limited edition, surprise MICROPHONES LP & it’s an ambient/drone record of a “foghorn” sound that’s actually a pitch-bent bass sound that he uses in the background of “Glow Pt. 2” & some other records.
LINDA SMITH – Another Time: 1988- 1996 LP/CD (Captured Tracks)
Like many independent artists in the 80s & 90s, the 4 track tape recorder was a main weapon & that was certainly the case for the NYC/Baltimore based musician Linda Smith. Smith played & recorded these songs at home & they share a lot of the same charm as other lo-fi artists of the era like SEBADOH, early MOUNTAIN GOATS, Simon Joyner etc… with some post-VELVETS/RAINCOATS 60’s girl group sounds mixed in too. Some of these songs were released on tapes & 7″ by labels like Slumberland & Harriet. RECOMMENDED!
A WINGED VICTORY FOR THE SULLEN – Invisible Cities LP/CD (Artificial Pinearch) limited “beer” color vinyl
The duo of Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Halloran release their score for the stage production of “Invisible Cities”, based on the novel by Italo Calvino. These are gentle and meditative ambient pieces that showcase the pair’s mastery of tone and dynamics. Good stuff!
