New Releases - July 19

Thom Yorke - Anima (XL)

Thom Yorke's new album was written by Thom Yorke and produced by Nigel Godrich. The album features 9 tracks, with an extra track exclusively on the vinyl. A 'one-reeler' film, also entitled ANIMA, is available to watch exclusively via Netflix made by Paul Thomas Anderson to music from Thom's album. Limited color vinyl while it lasts. Free sticker set with purchase of CD or LP!

Purple Mountains - s/t (Drag City)

After a decade in the wilderness, David Berman has returned - this time around as Purple Mountains, leaving his iconic Silver Jews brand to history. Fortunately for all the fans, he's retained his iconic songwriting style, with a new batch of tunes conveying an astonishing variety of 21st-century mid-life crises. Featuring full-on technicolor production intervention from Woods' Jarvis Taveniere and Jeremy Earle, the debut stands tall among Berman's classic albums, with knee-slappers and eye-wipers alike - 10 tracks ready to go into suffering jukeboxes across the land.

Tycho - Weather (Mom+Pop)

Tycho has produced and released a hugely successful back catalogue which has drawn comparisons to the likes of Boards of Canada, Ulrich Schnauss and Jon Hopkins. Tycho's 5th studio album is an exciting progression from his previous output, with most of the new tracks being vocal lead, while still retaining the signature Tycho sound. The sonic shift is enhanced by a collaboration with a young exciting new voice - vocalist Saint Sinner who will be joining the live band following her time in the studio.

Damon Locks Black Monument Ensemble - Where Future Unfolds (International Anthem)

Starting as a solo sound collage piece, over 4 years the project has blossomed into a 15-piece ensemble featuring musicians, dancers, and singers. A live capture of the their epic debut at the Garfield Park Botanical Conservatory on the West Side of Chicago, the album recalls the spirits of Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble, Eddie Gale's Ghetto Music, Archie Shepp's Attica Blues, and Public Enemy's It Takes a Nation of Millions in an inspired & utterly immediate contemporary intersection of gospel, jazz, activism & 808 breaks. Recommended!

Gibson & Toutant - s/t [tape] (Flannelgraph)

Featuring Josephine McRobbie (Tammar, Thee Tsunamis) and Joe O'Connell (Elephant Micah), the maiden-named duo chose their moniker to pay tribute to two loved ones who fervently consumed American roots music from their respective perches in Texas and Queensland. While digging into these cultural and family memories, the duo struck the earthy tangle of inter-hemispheric inspiration that equated the Far North with the Deep South. Call it Australian Americana or American Australiana.

Brian Eno - Apollo: Soundtracks & Atmospheres (Universal)

Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks was written, produced and performed by Brian Eno together with his brother Roger and Daniel Lanois. The music was originally recorded in 1983 for a landmark feature-length documentary, For All Mankind, directed by American journalist, film director and screenwriter, Al Reinert. Apollo: Soundtracks & Atmospheres Extended Edition features the original album remastered by Abbey Road's Miles Showell as well as an accompanying album comprising of 11 NEW instrumental compositions reimagining the soundtrack to For All Mankind.

Prince - Originals (WB)

By the mid-80s, Prince was dominating the charts as a writer/producer with songs he'd composed and recorded for others. In addition to releasing some of his most successful albums, he also recorded endless reels of material for The Time, Vanity 6, Sheila E, Apollonia 6, Jill Jones, the Family, and Mazarati. Occasionally, his demos would be used as master takes on their albums, with only minor alterations and a replacement of the vocal tracks. Other times, artists would rely on his demos to guide them. Free tote w/ purchase of CD or LP!

The Rats - In A Desperate Red LP (Mississippi)

Fred and Toody Cole (Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows) ultimate pop masterpiece. The last record by the Portland punk legends before Dead Moon. Two songs from the first Dead Moon LP hail from these same sessions. It finds the band in an almost new wave/art punk/pop mode. Years of work went into mixing and remastering this version - with Fred twisting knobs and obsessing over it's every detail and then Greg Shadoan and Tim Stollenwerk finishing the job. Impossible to find for many years - at last available as it was meant to be heard. Includes a huge color 40 page booklet and replica of a show poster.

VA - Freedom For The Stallion 3xLP (Cairo)

The 4th in the Cairo's soul compilation series (after "The Love You Save", "All This Goes Too", and "The Truth Is A Lie"). This comp spans everything from very popular well known soul artists to hard to find singles by obscure but equally great artists. It's all HEAVY soul songs with lots of deep ballads and a few groovers. There are also some amazing stripped down demo versions of popular tunes never before on vinyl. Gold foil print, TRIPLE LP, and 20 page full color liner notes.
