ost BLACK GIRL CD
*** "One of the rarest and most obscure of the soundtracks for black movies from the 70s feat. BETTY EVERETT, rare contributions from Rodger Collins and Walter Hawkins, and instrumentals with MERL SAUNDERS on organ."
DESTROY ALL MONSTERS 1974-1976 3xCD
*** RECOMMENDED "Finally! The 3 CD set that introduced the world to the pre-punk DAM. Out of the gloomy basements of Ann Arbor Michigan flowed the horrid strains of a music never before heard. Experience it in all of its musty glory. Yes, Destroy All Monsters rises again. 76 tracks."
JACK JOHNSON To The Sea LP+MP3 / CD
*** "The fifth studio album from the acclaimed singer/songwriter, recorded at the Mango Tree Studio in Hawaii, and the Solar Powered Plastic Plant in LA using 100% solar power."
KALEIDOSCOPE Pulsating Dreams 3xCD
*** "The entire 1967-1970 output from one of the most eclectic bands of the psychedelic era while signed to Epic Records. Features David Lindley on guitar & a host of exotic stringed instruments. Described by Jimmy Page as 'My favorite band of all time'."
MELVINS The Bride Screamed Murder CD
*** Perhaps you've heard of them! The MELVINS -- can't stop, won't stop! And now they have two drummers which is never a bad idea.
SCOTT MORGAN Scott Morgan CD
*** "The legendary Scott Morgan (RATIONALS and SONIC'S RENDEZVOUS BAND) has teamed up with some of Detroit's most highly regarded underground luminaries to make his definitive solo album where Detroit soul tradition meets Ann Arbor music history in a blast of Downtown Detroit contemporary rockn'roll culture."
TERRY RILEY A Rainbow In Curved Air CD
*** RECOMMENDED "Riley is one of the granddaddies of Minimalism. A spooky & hypnotic masterpiece, the music on this extraordinary disc was made with electric organ, electric harpsichord, "rocksichord," dumbec, tambourine, and soprano saxophone."
GUILTY SIMPSON OJ Simpson CD
*** "OJ Simpson. That's the name of the album. No bloody gloves. No Ford Broncos. 12 hard-hitting tracks featuring Guilty's inimitable baritone, and an equal number of Madlib's signature album-as-soundtrack/radio/sideshow arrangements, where the beat & sequence is as important as the rap."
SLEIGH BELLS Treats CD
*** "Rhythmic pop songs that combine overdriven guitar riffs and sugary female vocal melodies, earning the adoration of critics at the New Yorker, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and the Village Voice. M.I.A. put this shit out!"
PAUL WELLER Wake Up The Nation CD+BONUS MP3s
*** "Lean, mean and as uncompromisingly focused as its maker, feat. members of THE JAM, ELO, and MY BLOODY VALENTINE."
