Here are a few tasty items that have found their way into the racks lately that may have escaped your notice. Not necessarily Brand New, but, we think, worthy of your attention. Titles and minimal descriptions will be provided. The rest is up to you. If your curiosity is piqued you may refer to your favorite source of info on das internet or stop by for a more full blown enticement.

Mark Hollis-S/T
reissue of 1998 solo LP from Talk Talk frontman.

Cave - "Neverendless"
now here on CD or LP

Jim Ford - "Harlan County"
reissue of overlooked gem of Country Soul from late Seventies

Father's Children - "Who's Gonna Save The World"
Unbelievably Numero Group provides us with one more unearthed, unreleased treasure from 1973 by this fine DC soul outfit

Laura Marling - "A Creature I Don't Know"
this is getting some of the best reviews we seen in a while. Apparently quite "a stunning fulfilment of early promise" say Record Collector. This 21-yr-old British chanteuse is definitely on the way up. LP or CD

Field - "Looping State Of Mind"
yet another band that seems to improve with each new release. "Minimal techno stylings" probably does it an injustice. Top notch

A Winged Victory For The Sullen - "S/T"
the group is comprised of a dude from Stars Of The Lid and Dustin O'Halloran. It was described as "pastoral". That usually floats our boat.

*** "Jamaican Recordings & sister label Kingston Sounds drop 180-gram vinyl pressings of vintage reggae, rocksteady and ska from the 1960's-1980's. Choice comp!

BEASTIE BOYS Paul's Boutique 2xLP

FEIST Metals LP+MP3 / CD
*** *** "Astoundingly intimate, yet often exuberant; rife with transcendent & unforgettable pop gems -- a stunningly beautiful, sublime record."

KING TUBBY Dub From The Roots LP
*** "Some prime Tubby's material, with the King taking apart Cornell Campbell cut and feeding it through a head mashing matrix of echo and delay treatments with an unbridled voracity."

MINUTEMEN Double Nickels On The Dime 2xLP
*** BACK IN STOCK! And ho-lee shiiiiiiit! Do you own this yet? You have to do some serious time with this album.

MODEST MOUSE Good News For People Who Love Bad News 2xLP

*** "Fresh off the success of his album Rebel Rock Reggae, and about to enter the most prolific period of his career with legendary dub engineer King Tubby, this being their first collaboration."

LEE PERRY Roast Fish, Collie Weed & Corn Bread LP
LEE PERRY Dub Treasures From The Black Ark LP
LEE PERRY Return Of Sound System Scratch: More Lee Perry's Dub Plate Mixes Vol. 2 2xLP

*** BACK IN STOCK! Classic albums & recent compilations slay so completely.

*** Dub tracks from Black Uhuru's first album "Love Crisis", from 1977!

YOUTH LAGOON The Year Of Hibernation LP
*** "Although the music seems somewhat dreamy upon first listen, the lyrics show a different side to the matter. Hidden beneath the melodies is a voice that is eerie yet nostalgic."

NEW ARRIVALS: CDs - Bjork, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Feist, Radiohead & Jean-Claude Vannier

BJORK Biophilia CD
*** "Biophilia is the Icelandic singer and composer's most ambitious undertaking in her 20-year career. Someone actually said, 'To me, it feels like the birth of opera or the birth of cinema'."

BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY Wolfroy Goes To Town LP / CD
*** Yet another gemstone from WILL OLDHAM! And by gum, it was recorded in KENTUCKY. A bunch of people play on it -- all of them are prrrretty good musicians. Ah, music -- the nectar of life!

FEIST Metals LP+MP3 / CD
*** "Astoundingly intimate, yet often exuberant; rife with transcendent & unforgettable pop gems -- a stunningly beautiful, sublime record."

*** "New Blood is a continuum of Peter's previous Scratch My Back album - the song-swap project where he covered the songs of others, all to an orchestral backing."

GILBERTO GIL The Sound of Revolution 1968-69 CD
*** "The Sound of Revolution combines Gilberto Gil's brilliant 1968 and '69 Tropicalia albums, Frevo Rasgado and Cerebro Electronico; joyous, extraordinarily inventive pop. Two albums on one disc + 2 additional bonus tracks."

*** "The double CD set brings together all 19 remixes that form the band's current 12" vinyl singles series."

13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS Headstone: Contact Sessions 2xCD
*** BACK IN STOCK! "The Contact Sessions were the first studio recordings by The 13th Floor Elevators, recorded in 1966, which never saw the light of day in those heady drug-filled days. Mono & stereo versions included!"

*** RECOMMENDED "Electro Rapide is a collection of rare & unreleased archive material from the vaults of Jean-Claude Vannier. Taken from the period before and during his revered creative period with Serge Gainsbourg, this is a mix of JCVs familiar trade-mark motifs from his coveted work for idiosyncratic French pop vocalists (Briggitte Fontaine, Claude Nougaro, Leonie, Anna St Clair) with the seldom heard experimental music for ballets, fashion shows as well as his infamous film music (such as the soundtracks for Cannabis & La Horse)."

*** "A NEW album from JCV! The signature sound is there, complete with his brooding orchestral sweeps, pensive drum-drops, loudly plucked bass & biting clavinet."
