  • Victorialand, Cocteau Twins’ fourth album, was released in spring 1986. The largely acoustic, non-percussive album was made with Elizabeth and Robin, while Simon was working on This Mortal Coil's second album. Dif Juz label mate Richard Thomas guested on tabla and saxophone. The Guardian said "It’s not quite ambient, but it’s definitely not rock’n’roll even by the Cocteaus’ standards, building on the moments of guitar shimmer from the previous years’ EPs, while also stripping back at points to where it’s nothing but a Guthrie guitar line and Fraser’s voice." 140g black vinyl, audio remastered from the original analogue tapes and with art faithful to their original 23 Envelope designs.

  • Recorded Saturday 14th January 1978 at The Masonic Temple Theatre Detroit Unaccredited support to The Runaways & The Ramones There has been much talk about this show, did they do it or did they not? Even the remaining band members don’t agree. There is no documentative proof (SRB were not billed as support). Although many shows on this tour, did, have an opening act. We ourselves were advised at the time of our SRB Box set that a tape we were given and advised to include was in fact a recording of the near legendary, if not short, MASONIC Temple gig. We later found out that it was in fact NOT a recording of one whole concert let alone The Masonic Hall, with the exception of ‘City Slang’, which is from the show. This is a good quality Bootleg recording; we tracked down the individuals responsible for recording this show who confirmed where it was and when. Upon listening one can tell immediately this is a larger venue than any other live SRB recording. So after much speculation and heated discussion this is it all five songs ..The Complete Show !

    Originally released in June of 1982, the debut album by the Cocteau Twins is considered far darker than some of their later offerings, being influenced by Siouxsie and the Banshees, early Cure and the Birthday Party. During this early period, Will Heggie's bass played a significant role in defining their sound, giving it a darker and heavily rhythmic, earthy texture. This combined with Robin Guthrie's minimalistic and heavily effected guitar arrangements; a great deal of distortion and feed-back, smoothed out with chorus, reverb and flanger. Beneath is the roland 808 drum machine thumping along, as distinctively Cocteau sounding as the guitar. All while Elizabeth Fraser seemed to veer into glossolalia and mouth music. Garlands marks the beginning of their haunting ethereal sound. A masterpiece. The debut album remastered from the original analogue tapes. MP3 download coupon included. (4AD)
  • ICEBURN | asclepius | LP

    22.00 incl. tax
    Asclepius is the new album from the ever-evolving and adventurous collective Iceburn, who return with their first new material in twenty years. Much like the mythical ouroboros that appear in their music, Iceburn have come full circle, as guitarist/vocalist Gentry Densley (also of Eagle Twin & Ascend) comments, “Iceburn had always been about progressing and pushing the boundaries, pushing the music ahead of ourselves so we had to work to catch up. This new record comes from a place of rediscovery of who we are deep down, a place that with all it’s challenges and comforts, ultimately feels like home.” The rawness of Asclepius harks back to the days of their early records (such as Hephaestus), and fuses elements of metal, jazz, psychedelia, and rock with a seamless flow, monolithic riffs, swirling harmonies, and a groove that are the cornerstones of their sound. Asclepius comprises two long-form tracks, “Healing The Ouroboros” and ‘Dahlia Rides the Firebird’, the latter is based on an old traditional Greek tune. With some members majoring in classics/philosophy, music/composition and studying ethnomusicology – classic mythology has always been a key reference point for the themes of their music. That the new record is named after the god of healing and medicine and arriving at this moment in time is coincidence, as the band comments, “It felt like we needed healing even before this pandemic hit.” (Southern Lord Records)
  • Nadja is a duo of multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker and bassist Leah Buckareff—active since 2005—and making music which can be described as ambient doom, dreamsludge, or metalgaze. Nadja’s signature sound combines the atmospheric textures of shoegaze and ambient/electronic music with the heaviness, density, and volume of metal, noise, and industrial. For the new album, Luminous Rot, the duo retain their overblown/ambient sound, and explore shorter and more tightly structured songs reflecting their interests not only in metal, but post-punk, cold-wave, shoegaze, and industrial. Thematically, the album explores ideas of ‘first contact’ and the difficulties of recognising alien intelligence. This was in part inspired by reading such writers as Stanislaw Lem and Cixin Lui — in particular, theories on astro-physics, multi-dimensionality, and spatial geometry in “The Three Body Problem” — as well as Margaret Wertheim’s “A Field Guide To Hyperbolic Space,” about mathematician Daina Taimina’s work with crochet to illustrate hyperbolic space and geometry. The album was recorded between their home studio, Broken Spine Studios, or Nadja’s live rehearsal studio, both in the district of Lichtenberg, Berlin. Luminous Rot marks the first album mixed by someone else, who in this case was David Pajo. The band comment, “as big fans of Slint, we thought he might fore-front the more angular, post-punk elements of our music – the mix is quite different from our previous albums. But, as usual, we had James Plotkin (Khanate, OLD, etc) master the album as we trust his ears and aesthetic, as he’s mastered numerous records of ours.” *LP comes housed in a gatefold jacket.

    Goat is the second full-length studio album by The Jesus Lizard, released in 1991. It is their most acclaimed album, with many critics[when?] calling it one of the best albums of the 1990s. The album was produced by Steve Albini. Its cover art, by bassist David Wm. Sims, at first glance resembles a flame, but is actually a topless woman with a close-up image of nails projected onto her body. The rear of the album, and several panels of the enclosed CD booklet include similar pictures of the same naked woman, with different images projected onto her body. It was ranked as the 38th best album of the 1990s by the online magazine Pitchfork. (Touch and Go!)
  • The 12th studio album from Pink Floyd was originally released in 1983 and was the last album to include founding member Roger Waters. ‘The Final Cut’ was another global chart-topper for Pink Floyd. During the Falklands War and the era of Thatcherism, this anti-war concept album explored the themes of fallen servicemen, the loss of loved ones and political betrayal. Pink Floyd 2016 Remasters Remastered from the Original Master Tapes 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by James Guthrie and Joel Plante Vinyl cut by Bernie Grundman Pressed in Europe Reproduction of Original Artwork Gatefold Cover On 3 June 2016, Pink Floyd Records will begin the reintroduction of the Pink Floyd catalogue on vinyl for the first time in over two decades. Pink Floyd Records will reproduce the vinyl catalogue throughout the year with release dates being announced at regular intervals. Special care has been taken to replicate the original packaging. The first batch of releases, mastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman will be pressed on 180gram vinyl for optimum sound quality. Pink Floyd featuring Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason first broke onto the music scene in 1967, with the hit single ‘Arnold Layne’. Despite the departure of Syd Barrett, the group, which now included David Gilmour, recorded some of the most innovative and ground breaking records of the time, culminating in 1973 with one of the biggest selling albums of all time, ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’. There followed numerous global number 1 albums, including, ‘The Wall’, ‘Animals’, ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘The Final Cut’ and 2014’s finale, ‘The Endless River’. Pink Floyd Records releases will be manufactured and distributed by Warner Music for the UK and Europe and by Sony Music for North America and the rest of the world. Waters originally planned the album as a soundtrack for the 1982 film Pink Floyd - The Wall. However, he re-wrote it as a concept album exploring the betrayal of his father who died serving in World War II. "The Final Cut extends the autobiography of The Wall, concentrating on Roger Waters' pain when his father died in World War II. Waters spins this off into a treatise on the futility of war, concentrating on the Falkland Islands, setting his blistering condemnations and scathing anger to impossibly subdued music that demands full attention. This is more like a novel than a record, requiring total concentration since shifts in dynamics, orchestration, and instrumentation are used as effect. This means that while this has the texture of classic Pink Floyd, somewhere between the brooding sections of The Wall and the monolithic menace of Animals, there are no songs or hooks to make these radio favorites. The even bent of the arrangements, where the music is used as texture, not music, means that The Final Cut purposely alienates all but the dedicated listener. Several of those listeners maintain that this is among Pink Floyd's finest efforts, and it certainly is an achievement of some kind -- there's not only no other Floyd album quite like it, it has no close comparisons to anybody else's work (apart from Waters' own The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking, yet that had a stronger musical core). That doesn't make this easier to embrace, of course, and it's damn near impenetrable in many respects, but with its anger, emphasis on lyrics, and sonic textures, it's clear that it's the album that Waters intended it to be." - Thomas Erlewine, All Music (Pink Floyd Records)
  • 'Obscured by Clouds' is the soundtrack to the movie of the same name. Directed by Barbet Schroeder and starring Bulle Ogier and Jean Pierre Kalfon, the movie was originally known as 'La Vallee'. The last in Pink Floyd's series of 1970s film-inspired works, 'Obscured by Clouds', like much of the band's music, has a cinematic feel. In retrospect, however, the album sounds like a warm-up for - or even a collection of high-quality outtakes from - Floyd's next and greatest record, 'Dark Side of the Moon'. The opening title track is the sort of proto-ambient music that Pink Floyd helped pioneer and, with its spooky slide guitar, sounds uncannily like some of Eno's work with U2. After another instrumental, the album takes a more traditional, song-based turn and the next seven tunes cover a dizzyingly diverse array of styles. There is stomping, Grand Funk Railroad-style hard rock and gentle ballads like 'Stay' and 'Burning Bridges' (which recalls Hendrix's 'Little Wing'). 'Childhood's End,' a funky psychedelic number, sounds like a work-in-progress version of Dark Side's 'Time.' David Gilmour, especially, is on top form. Whether creating Robert Fripp-esque soundscapes or blistering Clapton-style blues solos, Gilmour always plays for the song, effortlessly walking the thin line between guitar hero and ensemble musician. throughout, the band weaves a beautiful, yet decidedly un-flashy, tapestry of sound that makes for a subtle, varied, and ultimately essential Pink Floyd album.
