GREEN RAY
Half Sentences
 cover
Reckless
NEW RECKLESS RECORDS LABEL RELEASE!! THE GREEN RAY is a London based psych rock band that features members of the much loved 70's band HELP YOURSELF. Hints of 70's psych bands such as T2, later PINK FLOYD (mainly the Gilmour esque leads) with a dusty, sort of country vibe in the background. OBVIOUSLY RECOMMENDED!

New CD $9.99

FAVOURITES
New Feeling (w/ Cd)
 cover
Reckless
NEW RECKLESS RECORDS LABEL RELEASE! THE FAVOURITES had a brief existence from 1978-79 but they managed to release a few highly acclaimed singles, opened for bands like THE ONLY ONES & SQUEEZE & made these fantastic recordings that were shockingly never released until now. The Nottingham group wrote excellent power pop songs with a punk edge to them. Think BUZZCOCKS, early SCIENTISTS, BOYS, ONLY ONES etc... The singer Daryl Hunt went on to play with THE POGUES & guitarist Duncan is an employee at our London shop. RECOMMENDED OBVIOUSLY!

TROYES
Love Comes Love Dies (2lps) Complete Recordings
 cover
Lion Productions
Much appreciated collection of material by this late 60's Michigan garage/psych band THE TROYES. The group released two singles on the Space Records label which was run by Ran Anthony, a bandleader best known for the "Dragnet" & "Peter Gunn" themes. Despite only releasing the two singles, including the minor hit "Rainbow Chaser", the band actually recorded almost two albums of material that were never released. Top-notch garage psych ala THE TROGGS & ELECTRIC PRUNES with some heavy tracks that almost sound like BLUE CHEER, mainly because of the killer lead playing. Any fan of 60's "Nuggets" will want to pick this up. RECOMMENDED!
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $27.99

A BOLHA
Um Passo A Frente (reissue, Ltd.ed.)
 cover
Lion Productions
Lion Productions brings us a limited edition reissue of this 1971 album by the Brazilian psych rock group A BOLHA. The band was part of the tropicalia scene & even backed up Gal Costa for a residency in 1970 but musically A BOLHA was on their own path. Drug fueled heavy psych rock with a hefty bed of hammond organ & farfisa. A must have for fans of 70's South American psych rock. RECOMMENDED.

BAKER, JULIEN
Turn Out The Lights (clear Vinyl)
 cover
Matador
"Turn Out the Lights" is the second album from this Memphis based singer/songwriter. At just 21, Baker is wise beyond her years & this is an incredibly mature album. Many of the songs deal with themes of break-ups & depression & the record definitely has a chilly, autumn feel to it so it's release is well-timed. The guitars are crisp & clean with a good amount of chorus & some tasteful string accompaniment. Musically, there are hints of emo on the edges of this, with nods at EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY or AMERICAN FOOTBALL triumph that doesn't ever really materialize, instead Baker's gut-wrenching voice & lyrics provides all of the atmosphere & bombast that would likely be ruined by a big rhythm section. Fans of her first album, Sharon Van Etten, CAT POWER etc...will love. RECOMMENDED.

FRUSCIANTE, JOHN
Niandra Lades & Usually Just A T-shirt
 cover
Superior Viaduct
First ever vinyl issue of this 1994 solo album by the talented ex-RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist John Frusciante. Lo-fi cassette 4 track recordings with a sort of outsider, indie rock vibe. Think 90's GUIDED BY VOICES, early SEBADOH, early FLAMING LIPS etc...
Available at: Milwaukee Ave. and Loop
New LP $34.99

BAD SONS
Hot Face (yellow/pink Vinyl, Ltd 250)
 cover
Self
Driving, anthemic punk rock from here in Chicago! This has that Midwest ring to it: gruff & absolutely "punk" but with undeniable melody & catchiness. You need it!
Available at: Broadway and Loop
New 45 $7.99

UPSET
76' (10")
 cover
Lauren
Up-tempo pop punk from ex-members of VIVIAN GIRLS, HOLE & BEST COAST! Unlike those bands, this tends to be a little more urgent but no less melodic & fun. Great stuff on Lauren Records!

ERADICATOR
Eradicator (full-length)
 cover
Stonewalled
Absolutely amazing, high-concept LP right here from Chicago/Milwaukee band THE ERADICATOR, which is based off the Kids In The Hall sketch of the same name & features members of DIRECT HIT. You might think that a concept album about a masked squash player might get old and/or be totally lame, but we assure you that's not the case. The 12 songs on this album range from super-fast hardcore burners to freaking power-ballads. and are sooooooo catchy & well-written. You've never heard a punk album like this one, we guar-an-tee. On Stonewalled Records & HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Available at: Loop
New LP $12.99

STAVE
Black Hills (grey Marble Vinyl)
 cover
Standards & Practice
Very bottom-heavy stuff here from Chicago's STAVE (one half of also-heavy TALKER). This isn't straight- forward "dance" music, but rather more of a post- apocalyptic, borderline industrial mindfuck. Dark stuff on a label you should keep an eye on . . .
Available at: Loop
New LP $16.99

SMITH, KAITLYN AURELIA
Kid (2lp, Twilight Colored Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Western Vinyl
"The Kid" is the 4th album from the California based electronic artists Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. Using her beloved Buchla synth, Smith brings in other synths & instrumentation (flute, trumpet & cello for example) to bring these contemporary new age pop songs to life. Hinting at 80's new age tape releases ala Kate Epple & Bob Stohl aka EMERALD WEB & even Alice Coltrane's devotional music, "The Kid" just might be showing us the future of new age music. RECOMMENDED.
Available at: Broadway and Loop
New LP $23.99

WOODS, JAMILA
Heavn (white Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Jagjaguwar
Jamila Woods is a Chicago singer & poet from the Southside of Chicago. This album was released to much acclaim in 2016 & now it's available to the masses via Jagjaguwar & Closed Sessions. In many ways, Woods has been building this record for most of her creative life using a collage process that she's been utilizing for many years now. Woods has sang in acappela groups as well as backing up hip-hop, jazz & soul artists as well as singing in the church choir as a child. This is one of those records where you can hear joy & the love of music in every song. Fans of positive, world & jazz influenced soul music of the past 30 years or so will connect with this immediately & the CHANCE THE RAPPER guest spot on "LSD" doesn't hurt either. SOLANGE fans will want to check this out. RECOMMENDED!

TORRES
Three Futures
 cover
4AD
"Three Future" is the third album from the Brooklyn based artist Mackenzie Scott & her TORRES project. The album exists mostly in a realm of somewhat minimal, mid-tempo art rock that hints at Patti Smith, Kate Bush & even ST. VINCENT at times while not sounding like any of those artists specifically.

KADAVAR
Rough Times (bone-white Vinyl, Ltd 500)

2017 album is the fourth from Germany's KADAVAR, & boy do they bring the riffs on this one! Pure rock heavi- ness a la SABBATH, UNCLE ACID, SAINT VITUS, etc.

CITY OF CATERPILLAR
City Of Caterpillar (coke Bottle Clear) (2017 Reissue)
 cover
Repeater
2017 reissue of this legendary 2002 post-hardcore, screamo, whatever album. CITY OF CATERPILLAR was a very dynamic hardcore band, incorporating many quiet, GODSPEED-like passages but then cranking it up & screaming their brains out with a wall of guitars coming at you full blast. One of the all-time greats!
Available at: Broadway
New LP $17.99

CITY OF CATERPILLAR
Driving Spain Up A Wall
 cover
Repeater
Wow . . . this 11-minute CITY OF CATERPILLAR song was never properly recorded (some live versions exist), but the band put it to tape in their hometown of Rich- mond, VA to coincide with a few reunion shows in 2017. The B-side has "As the Curtains Dim," which is from the same sessions as their self-titled LP but hasn't been on vinyl before. CITY OF CATERPILLAR were instru- mental in the whole post-hardcore scene of the early '00s, incorporating shoegaze-y sounds into their whirlwind, screaming hardcore. Just as good today as it did in 2002!

ROCK, PETE & INI
Center Of Attention (2lp)
 cover
Vinyl Digital
One of the most bootlegged hip-hop LPs ever, this was slated for release in 1996 but was shelved & the group broke up after. Produced entirely by PETE ROCK & featuring the members: GRAP LUVA, MARCO POLO & ROB-O, this is pure '90s backpacker hip-hop. Deep rhymes & ROCK's signature, soulful beats. CLASSIC.
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $27.99

IBEYI
Ash (fold-out Sleeve)
 cover
XL
"Ash" is the 2nd album by the French-Cuban twins known as IBEYI. The sisters continue to push the boundaries of contemporary soul music & they get some help on the track "Deathless" from the modern jazz star Kamasi Washington.

DISROTTED/ LEDGE
Disrotted/ Ledge (split) Ledge/ Disrotted
 cover
Deep Six
Two sides of sloooooow death/sludge from two (mostly) Chicago bands: DISROTTED may be the slowest band we've ever heard. Absolutely crushing death/doom. LEDGE is mainly totaly, murky sludge but speeds things up because they're ex-WEEKEND NACHOS & they just can't shake their love for fast stuff. Very, very good!
Available at: All Stores

Prolific post-rock vets MOGWAI have mastered the art of atmospheric instrumental rock & this 2017 record proves it.

 cover
ATO
Something about what the Bronx does is perfect. It's pure punk, hardcore, done fast & catchy. The LA quintet has 4 albums to it's name that very few bands can match the quality of, & this 5th one might even be a step up with a less snotty, more adult & mature approach.
