>> DEL THE FUNKY HOMOSAPIEN – No Need for Alarm 2LP (Get On Down) *30th Anniversary – #’d & Ltd. Color Vinyl

Sophomore release from DEL THE FUNKY HOMOSAPIEN, & 30 years later it’s become a classic. Del’s first LP was put together with some help from his cousin, ICE CUBE & it should be no surprise to listeners that this second record, produced primarily by Hiero crew members Domino, A-Plus, Casual & Del himself, is a bit Jazzier & less G-Funky. Del’s got a great ear, a great pen, & an incredible voice, & if you don’t have a copy of this recOrd, you should grab this anniversary release before it’s too late. Promise you it’s worth it. RECOMMENDED!

>> ARIEL KALMA, JEREMIAH CHIU & MARTA SOFIA HONER – The Closest Thing to Silence LP/CD (International Anthem)

This collaboration between French-Australian new age luminary ARIEL KALMA and Int’l Anthem experimentalists JEREMIAH CHIU and MARTA SOFIA HONER was born at first from a meeting on BBC Radio’s “Late Junction” series, where the trio would exchange and work on fragments of each other’s original music. The initial twenty minute broadcast inspired them to expand their collaboration into a full length album, weaving together classical minimalism, fourth world rhythmic jazz, drone & sound design into a captivating collage. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> THE LAST DINNER PARTY – Prelude to Ecstasy LP (Island) *”Midnight” Black Vinyl w/ poster

UK five-piece THE LAST DINNER PARTY have built up an impressive amount of hype in their short time as a band, cracking the charts overseas and opening for the STONES all without a full-length to their name. Now Prelude to Ecstasy is finally here and, frankly, it rules. Bombastic & theatrical alt-pop in the vein of SPARKS or KATE BUSH with hooks for days, a really inventive rhythm section, and some serious guitar heroics that also line this up neatly with ST VINCENT or T.REX. Produced by JAMES FORD (JESSIE WARE, ARCTIC MONKEYS) and HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> METH. – Shame LP/CD (Prostethic) *White Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Chicago “experimental heavy band” METH. are back with another heater, their second on Prosthetic Records. Shame’s seven tracks assault the senses relentlessly with pummeling tempos & harsh sonics that, in concert with the vox & lyrics, offer a stark, harrowing glimpse into cycles of addiction, trauma & depression. They channel many of the same influences as peers like CHAT PILE and PRIMITIVE MAN – i.e. if you’re a fan of GODFLESH, THE JESUS LIZARD, SWANS BIG BLACK/SHELLAC etc, you’ll find lots to love here and you’ll relish the challenging listen. Another Chi-town drop we can be proud of… RECOMMENDED!
