CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA Ma Fleur LP
*** NOW ON VINYL!
A HAWK AND A HACKSAW And The Hun Hangar Ensemble CD
*** "Consisting of eight newly recorded and songs, both original and traditional, the EP serves as an introduction for both the listener and the artists themselves as they get to know each other, providing a platform from which music and ideas can evolve. In addition to the CD, a 20-minute bonus DVD (An Introduction To A Hawk And A Hacksaw) documents the last two years of almost continuous touring."
CHRIS CORNELL Carry On CD
*** If it isn't the voice of rock hisself! You may know this fellow from SOUNDGARDEN or AUDIOSLAVE or from his other solo album or from the new James Bond movie.
DAN DEACON Spiderman Of Rings CD
*** BACK IN STOCK! "A brand new album from Baltimore-based electronic artist and classically trained composer DAN DEACON--who sports a Masters degree in electroacoustic composition. Spiderman of the Rings is a nine-track blast of sweat-and-grime-soaked electronics that form the foundation of Deacon's raging, maxed-out party music, intricate instrumentals, and humorous monologues."
DOME Dome 1&2 CD
*** REISSUE! Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis of WIRE, during Wire's 1980-1984 hiatus, turned up the experimentalism and produced several albums of lo-fi minimalist somewhat droney tunes made from tape loops, found sounds, and sparse instrumentation.
DREAM THEATER Systematic Chaos CD
*** Brand new, and how they love those long songs!
POP GROUP Y CD
*** REISSUE! A brilliant work, striking in its originality at the time (although relatively unmatched even now), The Pop Group's 1979 debut is an amalgam of rock, funk, dub and audio collage. This is the first time in years that their work has been available in the US outside of some appearances on Soul Jazz compilations.
TV ON THE RADIO Live At Amoeba CD
*** A low-priced 4-song EP recorded live at Amoeba Music in Hollywood.
