Ten In The Swear Jar (Xiu Xiu)

Before Xiu Xiu, Jamie Stewart fronted a project called Ten in the Swear Jar (XITSJ). The songs are very much so Jamie Stewart written but with all the excellent musicians that made up the band and the songs being written long ago they feel focused, melodic and quite impressive. This is not music to ignore but rather is music to engage with. You will not be disappointed.

Herbie Hancock

“Dedication” is a unique Herbie Hancock outing in more ways than one. This is a solo Hancock release, all sounds heard on this recording are Hancock at the keyboards, be it an acoustic piano, a Fender Rhodes or a synth. The result being a recording that’s full of air and space, yet thoroughly funky. The project was recorded live in Tokyo in July of 1974 and never saw release outside of Japan until well into the 21st century. No official vinyl issue has ever happened outside of Japan where the LP has been out of print for decades.

For Record Store Day 2019 Get On Down presents the first ever US vinyl release of this important piece of Hancock’s artistic legacy.

The 28 song soundtrack for the indie film No Alternative, coming on April 2. A coming-of-age drama that blasts open the world of grunge-era teenagers in the early '90s. High schooler Thomas Harrison is determined to start his own alternative band after the suicide of Kurt Cobain — it’s an obsession that blinds him to what’s either the mental collapse, or the eruption of musical genius, of his little sister, Bridget. Bridget boldly rejects her brother’s music, and the music of an entire generation of slackers, by taking on the persona of a gangsta’ rapper named ‘Bri Da B.’ The writer and director of the film, William Dickerson, uses his own 1990s high school band "Latterday Saints" and his sister's gangsta' rap persona "Bri D B" for never-before-heard original music to complement the '90s music (Mudhoney, Sebadoh, Lisa Loeb) of the time.

Bowie contributed a piece of music to the film; his so-called "Revolutionary Song", played by a band called The Rebels. Later it became a collector’s item. Besides this track the 7-inch include the 1928 title song Just a Gigolo, performed by Marlene Dietrich. It was her last film appearance and last song she recorded during her lifetime.

Sugar Hill Records was the birthplace label for hip hop. It gave listeners their first exposure to urban rhyming and scratching that transformed pop music during the ‘80s. Many of the 12” singles and vinyl versions of their classics have been out of print for years, missing the rise of hip hop during the 80’s and 90’s. This 12” boxset will not only be a must have for the listeners who grew up on the music, but for the DJ’s to be able to go back to the beginning and mix each strategically placed single into their own vinyl DJ set . This 6 Disc Vinyl 12” Boxed set will incorporate all of the label’s classic A-sides - many in their full length mixes. We will have a small summary of the label and how it changed hip hop as liners and the boxed set will be packaged in a beautiful Sugar Hill Records slip case that pays tribute to the old school “feel” of the generation. In addition to the vinyl boxed set, we will be offering a special “DJ” version for digital download that will be a 1 hour and 17 minute non-stop “party mix” using each of the tracks, in their respectable order, with no breaks so it can be played at any party from start to finish, giving the party a DJ without an actual DJ present!

James Brown

Sho is Funky Down Here and The Grodeck Whipperjenny are a pair of albums that are the result of an unlikely but highly productive musical relationship between James Brown, a superstar at the creative and commercial peaks of his long career, and David Matthews, a then young arranger-musician whose limited professional experience had little or nothing to do with the funk and soul of his collaborator.

James Brown’s psychedelic album, created by his then-bandleader David Matthews, and issued at the same time as Matthews’ classic The Grodeck Whipperjenny. Underground, fuzzy, rambling psych-funk. The genesis of Brown’s “Talking Loud And Saying Nothing,” a 1990s hip hop sample staple, informing A Tribe Called Quest, Large Professor, Brand Nubian and others.

Lacquered directly from the original master tapes at Capitol Studios. This is the first official reissue of both of this rare titles. Contains an extensive booklet with full annotation, liner notes by Brown historian Alan Leeds and never-before-published photos.

Our year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock kicks off with this 3LP reconstruction of the original Woodstock soundtrack in glorious mono. Sourced primarily from the original soundboard recordings (with a few selections drawn from mono roughs and the ultra-rare promotional mono mix, where the soundboard tapes weren’t available) it’s a fresh perspective on some very familiar repertoire, and includes the full-length versions of many tracks that were shortened on the original release. If you’d been in the audience at Woodstock, this is what you would have heard coming out of the loudspeakers! The tracklisting follows the same sequence as the original 1970 Woodstock 3LP, and features performances by Arlo Guthrie, CSNY, The Who, Richie Havens, Joe Cocker, Santana, Country Joe & The Fish, John Sebastian, Joan Baez, Ten Years After, Jefferson Airplane, Canned Heat, Sly & The Family Stone, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Jimi Hendrix, and (of course!)

Vitamin String Quartet

When Björk won the 2010 Polar Music Prize, it was in recognition of her "deeply personal music and lyrics, her precise arrangements and her unique voice." Truer words couldn’t be spoken for exactly why Vitamin String Quartet had to honor the Icelandic icon. Throughout her career, she has radiated an eclectic and avant-garde air, incorporating aspects of electronic, experimental, glitch, jazz, alternative rock, and contemporary classical music. She consistently defies categorization and VSQ was passionate about making an album that reflected that audacious outlook. Björk often calls herself a pop artist. VSQ considers her restlessly innovative and ethereal, something they’ve strived for in equal measure on this record.

Link Wray

Easy Eye Sound is proud to release the legendary Link Wray lost tracks “Vernon’s Diamond” recorded between 1958-59 at the Broadway Recording Studio in NYC and “My Brother, My Son” recorded in 1970 at Fred Foster Studios in Nashville, TN.

In late 1958, Link was in New York for a gig. He walked into Broadway Recording Studio and laid down the song, “Vernon’s Diamond,” which was cut live to 45 acetate disc. The disc sat on a shelf for 60 years before being recently discovered. One label had a typewritten title, “A Cook for Mr. General,,” that was crossed out, and the title “Vernon’s Diamond,” had been handwritten in ink across it. Broadway Recording Studio was located at 1697 Broadway. The studio was located in the Ed Sullivan Building, which was the same building where CBS broadcast the Kraft Mystery Theater show in the ‘50s. One of the episode's broadcast was entitled “A Cook for Mr. Generall". Acetate discs were hand-cut and labeled in the studio. Keeping with Link’s practice of re-naming versions of his music throughout the years, “A Cook for Mr. General” transformed into “Vernon’s Diamond.” Then, recorded again later, was renamed one more time and became Link’s “Ace of Spades.”

Said Dan Auerbach of Wray’s importance, “I saw him play in Cleveland at the Grog Shop, and he blew my mind. To get the chance to put out unreleased songs on Easy Eye Sound is amazing and a dream I never thought was possible. It’s time we give Link Wray a statue on the top of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.” “Vernon’s Diamond” is a never-released track from the Link Wray Archives. This song, along with another never heard track, "My Brother, My Son," as the B-side, is releasing as a 7-inch vinyl on Record Store Day.

Insides

Beacon Sound present a reissue of the 1993 album Euphoria by UK duo Insides (previously Earwig). Euphoria sits at the crossroads of a very exciting time in the early 1990s when artists like Seefeel, Moonshake, and Aphex Twin were mining emerging technologies and pushing British music in new directions.

A leftfield electronic pop album without peer, Euphoria incorporates programmed beats, elements of neoclassical minimalism, and the soothing voice and acerbic lyrics of singer Kirsty Yates into a memorable and masterful collection of songs that sound Like nothing else, either then or now. Reviews at the time reference composers like Steve Reich and Brian Eno as well as groups like My Bloody Valentine and AR Kane and describe it as being both "danceable" and "ambient".

Originally released on 4AD offshoot label Guernica (Unrest, Bettie Serveert, Spoonfed Hybrid), it made many year-end lists in 1993 and demands rediscovery and reappraisal in 2019 given our current era of genre-splicing experimentation. Licensed from 4AD and remastered by Julian Tardo from HD audio files transferred from the original tapes, this RSD release features the original packaging as well as a new insert with press clippings from the era and liner notes by Simon Reynolds, who coined the term "post-rock" while writing about the group in 1993.

Insurgence DC

Insurgence, AKA Insurgence DC,  bring us their first full length album in 20  years with "Broken In The Theater Of The Absurd". With a strong punk 1980's influence, in the stylings of the Clash, Fugazi and the Minutemen)  this entire Insurgence DC ( Da Capo) album is about recognizing and surviving in the greedy, corrupt and polarized landscape of modern day America. The anthemic "Salt" starts out with the words "Of The People, By The People and For The Few It Seems".  The powerful "Outlines Of Chalk" displays strong, outspoken commentary ("A gun is a gun, but not all are equal-The AR-15 fills us with unlimited sequels") . "Outline Of Chalk" is an intense, heartfelt  voice against leaders who take their "blood pay from the NRA".  Many other songs such as "Poison Profits", "Pick Pocket Pirates" ,"Dishonor" and "Polarization" also point out and reveal the unethical politicians on Capitol Hill ("Snakes in Suits") and the slimy corporations that pay these leaders until they 'Kick That Can"  and leave it for future generations to clean up. In doing so they "The Few" have tapped into and virtually broken the backbone of our entire legislative and legal sysem. The songs "True To Life" and  "Third Part Opinions"  are more  introspective anthems, suggesting people form their own opinions and take an individual stance on matters rather than "following like sheep".  Insurgence formed in 1987 and have remained DIY and fiercely independent for their entire existence. From 1987 to 1999 they played over 400 shows and had three full length albums and several releases on 7" and cassette. Since returning from hiatus in 2014, they have had two 7" releases and been on three compilations. 'Broken In The Theater Of The Absurd' was recorded at various studios and mixed in 2018-2019 in Arlington, VA at Inner Ear Studios with Don Zientara and in Raleigh, NC at Pershing Hill Studios with Greg Elkins. This pressing is on 180 gram vinyl and is limited to 700 numbered copies, 300 on colored vinyl and 400 on black. Comes with a digital download. 400 Black/300 Smoke Vinyl Pressing.

Complesso Strumentale Italiano, Giulio Confalconieri

Decca proudly presents a unique artefact from its vaults for the first time since the original release in 1962. In Venice, August 1961, the most prominent surrealist artist of all time, Salvador Dalí staged a very unique performance at the Teatro La Fenice and Decca were on hand to document the event. Available for the first time since its original release this fascinating document is presented with its original artwork reproducing Dalí’s own designs and includes exclusive interviews with the artist himself.

Best known for his striking and bizarre images (and the Chupa Chups® logo), Salvador Dalí was a highly imaginative individual and constantly indulging in unusual and grandiose behaviour.

His public appearances were always a spectacle and in August 1961 it was announced that the Master would arrive in Venice by whale. Nobody knows whether he did or not, but certainly his presence caused the most bizarre spectacle in the most beautiful opera house, the Teatro La Fenice – in fact the first completely surrealistic stage performance Dalí had known . . .

. . . On stage a blind man watches television, a wardrobe mistress constantly irons, a carcass of beef hangs surrounded by flies, a limp watch is handed around; and before Dalí's famous paintings there are processions of limping beggars, gondoliers, and finally the Master himself in a gondolier's gleaming white uniform and a red Catalan cap.

Decca were on hand to document the event in Venice, August 1961. This iconic moment and accompanying performances were caught on record by two legendary Decca employees: Producer Erik Smith and engineer Roy Wallace*
*the co-creator [alongside his colleague Arthur Haddy] of the "Decca Tree" and Decca's unique stereo recording technique, i.e. the signature "Decca Sound"

Decca now proudly presents, for the first time since its original release in 1962, this unique artefact from the vaults. It is a fascinating insight to one of the most prominent surrealist artists of all time.

This release is lovingly presented with the original artwork [representing the original set designs by Dalí] and includes exclusive interviews with the artist himself.

With dozens of museums and permanent exhibitions around the world on one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century, this should be a true collector's item.

John the Martyr

Born at the crossroads of good old-fashioned Harlem soul power and next generation New Orleans sounds, John The Martyr's debut album is best described by lead singer Bill Hudson as a "gumbo". “Cross The Line” taps into a modern gospel flare with timeless Detroit styling and "Feeling Good" is a one-two punch of Motown heart and New Orleans gusto. It has also been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network's Queen Sugar. “That one lives up to its title,” laughs Bill. “It’s all about feeling good.”
