ESG - Come Away With
ESG
Come Away With
LP | 1983 | UK | Reissue (Fire)
19,99 €*
Release:1983 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Come Away With ESG is the classic genre-busting debut album by the Bronx sisters ESG. The sample-friendly opus that's the inspiration for hip-hop, house and post punk. Music that falls outside of the no wave, new wave and post punk library, it's for the dance floor but it's not funk, there's no horns, no driving organ; it's the opposite of Sly And The Family Stone but no less cool and no less groovy. "A lasting document of their unique brand of minimal funk that would influence subsequent post-punk, hip-hop, and dance music acts. Stripped down to the most basic of drumbeats and rudimentary bass lines, `Come Away' confirms the notion that the real rhythm is what happens between the beats. - AllMusic
Vanishing Twin - The Age Of Immunology Black Vinyl Edition
Vanishing Twin
The Age Of Immunology Black Vinyl Edition
LP | 2019 | UK | Original (Fire)
21,99 €*
Release:2019 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves, Electronic / Dance, Pop
Vanishing Twin is songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist Cathy Lucas, drummer Valentina Magaletti, bassist Susumu Mukai, synth/guitar player Phil MFU and visual artist/film maker Elliott Arndt on flute and percussion; and on this album they have made their first artistic statement for the ages. Some of its great power comes from liberation. The album was produced by Lucas in a number of non-standard, non-studio settings. 'KRK (At Home In Strange Places)' summons up the spirit of Sun Ra's Lanquidity and Broadcast And The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio was simply recorded on an iPhone during a live set which crackled with psychic connectivity on the Croatian island of Krk. The magical Morricone-esque lounge of 'You Are Not an Island', the blissed-out Jean-Claude Vannier style arrangement of 'Invisible World' and burbling sci fi funk ode to a 1972 cult French animation, 'Plane?te Sauvage', were all recorded in nighttime sessions in an abandoned mill in Sudbury. The only two outsiders to work on the recording were '6th member' and engineer Syd Kemp and trusted friend Malcolm Catto, band leader of the spiritual jazz/future funk outfit The Heliocentrics, who mixed seven of the tracks (with Lucas taking care of the other three). Vanishing Twin formed in 2015 - their first LP, Choose Your Own Adventure, which came out on Soundway in 2016; followed by the darker, more abstract, mostly instrumental Dream By Numbers EP in 2017. The band explored their more experimental tendencies on the Magic And Machines tape released by Blank Editions in 2018, an improvised session recorded in the dead of night, offering a glimpse into their practice of deep listening, near band telepathy, and ritually improvised sound making. These sessions formed the basis of The Age Of Immunology.

Dons Savage Is An Unparalled Talent, A Savant Of The Perfect Melody And Lyrics Which Both Touch And Bite, A Throwbook To The Carole King's And Gerry Goffin's Of Brill Building Pop, An Instinctive Penseuse Besting The Originators Of The Riot Grrrl Movement By Responding To Their Conversations Of Rage And Sexuality And Finding A Place In The World Some Years Before The Initial Sparks Of That Particular Revolution Had Even Begun. Dead Famous People's First Real Album, Harry, Is Now Being Unleashed To The World. Dead Famous People First Emerged In The 1980s, Releasing On The Likes Of Flying Nun And Earning Praise From The Likes Of John Peel, Who Invited Them In For A Session. However, Things Didn't Work Out And To The Dismay Of Many Fans, They Never Released A Proper Album. Three Decades Later Dons Was Tracked Down By Fire Records And Given The Opportunity To Finally Enter The Studio To Record. Somewhat More Philosophical Than Her Earlier Work, Harry Is An Album That Feels Like The Right One For A World Of Apocalyptic Pandemic, Uncertainty And Quarantine. It Begins With A Healthy Scoop Of Dons' Earlier Humour In Looking At Girls (Expertly Mixed By Dave Trumfio) Wherein A Woman Learns Of Her Lover's Car Crash Only To Be Told The Cause Was, Well, Look At The Title. Goddess Of Chill Is A Paean To The Forces Of Artistic Inspiration In The Face Of 'A Little Worry Here, A Little Chorus There'. Dead Bird's Eye Is A Parable Of Environmentalism Through The Misdeeds Of A Small Child. Throughout These Songs, Dons' Power Over Melody And Knack For Profundity In A Single Simple Line Is Unchanged Since Dead Famous People's Original Incarnation.

22,99 €*
Release:2020 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Sun Racket' is the brand new album from legendary Boston trio Throwing Muses, consisting of Kristin Hersh, David Narcizo and Bernard Georges. The follow up to 2013's 'Purgatory/Paradise' is an outpouring of modal guitars, reverbed shapes, echoey drums and driving bass set behind Kristen Hersh's well-thumbed notebook of storylines. A ten-song opus of suitably wrought tales set against a wall of sound that's at once calm and ethereal before building into glorious cacophonous crescendos. When Throwing Muses wrote their last album, they were shattered. Pieces were coming and going, elements repeating and charging the whole. "It sounded beautiful jumping around like that". Two-minute songs reappearing as twisted instrumentals or another song's bridge. They mimicked the effect live which kept them on their toes. Whatever was happening was already over in other words. 'Sun Racket' is the opposite. It refused to do anything but sit still. It says, "sit here and deal". "All it asked of us was to comingle two completely disparate sonic vocabularies: one heavy noise, the other delicate music box. Turns out we didn't have to do much. Sun Racket knew what it was doing and pushed us aside, which is always best. After thirty years of playing together, we trust each other implicitly but we trust the music more" - Kristin Hersh And so, they continue. Business unusual. "A ground-breaking band who changed the face of alternative music rather than follow the rule book." MXDWN "Pioneers of the 80s/early 90s college rock sound" Pitchfork "One of America's finest guitar bands" The Quietus

Genre:Rock / Indie
2LP PINK vinyl, in 5mm spine sleeve. Deluxe Bookback CD & DVD. "Weaver's most illuminating guide yet to her crate digging ... An inspired makeover that only serves to complement Weaver's past achievements" MOJO. This unique package successfully archives the key elements of Jane's 'Loops In The Secret Society' tour. Housed in a concise limited-edition pocket-compendium the new CD version brings Jane's fully realised 'Loops Variations' and sonic installations into your own environment with new illustrations based on the songs by Andy Votel and DVD featuring the experimental film installation featured on the tour by Nick Farrimond. When science fiction turns science fact the effect can be truly momentous. The state demands that no-one wants an unlicensed machine-hum from an outbuilding; no-one wants clever prose mapping the future, no-one wants "music" that is attention-seeking, soul-defining, beneficial, Biblical, baroque and beautiful. No-one told Jane Weaver that. Jane Weaver's multi-layered synthetics evolved into a welcoming slew with 2014's 'The Silver Globe', continuing through to 2017's 'Modern Kosmology'. 'Loops In The Secret Society' is a re-imagined journey through parts of both albums, with new ambient pieces primed and polished; with new tangents explored in a lab-friendly blossoming of the Weaver vision that travels yet further into the psych of our future. A continuous experience with one-line observations set in glorious sense-stimulating sound. That source material was then united in an expansionist experiment in late 2018.. Co-conspirators include Henry Broadhead, PJ Phillipson and Andy Votel. Renegades all, headed by the enigmatic Weaver all under surveillance.

Clocking up a decade since its initial release “Sno Angel Like You” will be reissued this September celebrating its ten year anniversary. Collaborating with Canadian Gospel Choir, Voice of Praises following a performance at 2003’s Ottawa Bluesfest where Howe was billed alongside gospel choirs. Howe experienced his own awakening of sorts and found himself discussing with the church director the possibility of recording together. A similar run of events ensued at the same festival and Howe would go on to meet folk singer Susan Odle. Recruiting along the way, Jim Bryson’s keyboard player and recording engineer Dave Draves was soon on board and would go on to record the album. Once in the studio, Howe met drummer Jeremy Gara (pre-Arcade Fire) and together they laid down the initial recordings of the album on guitar and drums using similar recording techniques to older Giant Sand. Recording seven new songs with the choir arranging vocals, they also covered three Giant Sand songs and three Rainer Ptacek tracks. The uplifting and soulful popular tenth solo record sees “the occasionally unassuming, semi-mumble of Gelb's voice contrast marvelously with the trained, primed-for-transcendence-quality singing of Voices of Praise. The double LP is pressed to 145g black vinyl and comes with printed inners, download postcard in a beautiful gatefold cover.

Genre:Rock / Indie
“It's a devastating debut...this album has struck me with a vengeance. Because it delivers such a powerful, complex and open-ended punch, it's almost impossible at such an early stage to explain why or how in full detail.” Melody Maker. / “I would be willing to sit down and argue that modern-day rock ‘n’ roll reached its peak in 1978 with Pere Ubu’s The Modern Dance and has declined ever since." Rolling Stone / “Peru Ubu’s full length debut fancies itself a fusion of musique concrete and The Stooges. Shrill and ugly it crystallises their original version of industrial rock” Uncut / ‘The Modern Dance’ is the first studio release from Pere Ubu set for reissue on Fire Records in August, 2015. Following their self-released first singles on Hearpen Records, the uncompromising complex debut has continuously stirred critics. Today the record is still as direct and powerful as it was first heard. Exploding onto the scene with a handful of releases behind them, Pere Ubu’s ‘The Modern Dance’ stunned the music world and quickly began appearing on ‘Most Influential’ album lists. Pere Ubu originally formed as a studio project drawing on a body of musicians who were involved in the Cleveland underground music scene that had, by August 1975, seemingly run its course. The main objective of the band at that time was to document their work and then disappear. Luckily for us they were on the cusp of changing the face of rock forever. For this reworking, Paul Hamann at Suma has transferred from the original 2-track analogue mix tapes to digital at the highest resolution available which, is at least four times the resolution of the original. The tracks have carefully been re-mastered by sonic architect Brian Pyle so as to capture the unique qualities within.

Formed in Malmö, Sweden by Marleen Nilsson and Anders Hansson, Death and Vanilla utilise vintage musical equipment such as vibraphone, organ, mellotron, tremolo guitar and moog, to emulate the sounds of '60s/'70s soundtracks, library music, German Krautrock, French yé-yé beat-pop and '60s psych. 'Where The Wild Things Are' starts off with some of the most "pop" songs they ever recorded, but then proceeds into stranger territory, resulting in some of the most experimental material Death And Vanilla have yet produced.

Lp Black Vinyl, Reverse Board Sleeve, Dl Card. Brand New Album From Colorado's Freewheelin' Melodist Josephine Foster. Revolving Between Her Adopted Spain And Her Native American West, Josephine Was Stationed This Spring In Nashville With Maverick Guitarist And Comrade-In-Arms Matthew Schneider. The Result: 'No Harm Done', A Spacious And Enveloping Love Letter Of An Album. Eight New Slow-Burning Songs Branch Forth From Idiosyncratic Country Folk Blues, Sung With Sibylline Wit And A Hint Of The Absurd, Awash In Sensually Anachronic Lyricism. "The Wheel Of Fortune", Nearly A Title Track By Virtue Of Its Refrain: 'No Harm Will Come/If There's No Harm Done', Are Words Of A Homebound Wanderer Finding Refuge In Healing Stillness With Her Beloved, Having 'Time To Kill' In The Midst Of 'Hard Times To Feel At Home'. All Delivered With Calm Sagacity Upon The Pedestal Of Mr. Schneider's Pedal Steel And Underscored By A Knowing Trebled Chorus In Foster's Lower Register. Going Nowhere Never Felt Like So Righteous Of A Destination Before. Devotion In All Its Permutations, Spiritual To Carnal, Are Seamlessly Explored. In 'Conjugal Bliss', Overtones Of The 12-String And Autoharp Gently Interplay, Sounding Like Some Unearthed Carter Family Wedding Hymn (It Bears The Subversive Subtitle '69' ) While 'How Come, Honeycomb?' Bounces Low In The Hips Like A Sultry Old Music Hall Number À La Harry Nilsson. The Obliquely Sapphic 'Leonine', It's Unquiet Harp Scaling Right Out Of Ancient Lesbos, Dreams Of A Kingless Land; In 'Sure Am Devilish', A Stargazer Humbly Confesses To A Lowercase Lord. 'Old Saw', The Mesmeric Album Closer, Is A Medium's Petition To Cross The Threshold And Merge With The Holy Spirit. Josephine's Enigmatic Voice Captured Once More By Frequent Co-Producer Andrija Tokic In His Analog Bomb Shelter Studio, Where Layers Of Her Guitar, Piano, Organ Entwine With Schneider's 12-String, Pedal Steel And Electric Bass To Rouse A Spectral Yet Full Blooded Band.

Half Japanese return with another thrilling ride into unknown charters encountering beasts, celebrities, and menaces. Purveyors of noise and indie rock for over four decades, Half Japanese have inspired generations of fans from musicians and critics alike. Now set to release their 19th studio album 'Crazy Hearts' continues with their detuned, outsider pop capturing you in the way that only Jad Fair ever can. A philosophical psych-tinged journey, these whip-smart observations are uplifting with life-affirming sentiments ('Wondrous Wonder') that we are familiar with. They meld melodic classic rock riffs with heavier bass lines and darker, more twisted tones on 'My Celebrity' and 'A Phantom Menace'. Their last excursion saw Uncut praising them for their "unchanged, more ecstatic musings on love and science fiction" that continues to resonate here. Half Japanese deliver another well-wrought album with their usual DIY ethos and art punk spirit at its core ('Undisputed Champions'), all whilst wearing Jad's heart firmly on its sleeve ('Crazy Hearts'). Recorded across various studios in Spain, France and the US, Jad Fair is accompanied by his longstanding band members John Sluggett, Giles Vincent Rieder, Mick Hobbs and Jason Willett. Mastered by Brian Pyle and mixed by Jason Willett of the band. Album includes artwork from American illustrator and cartoonist, Gary Panter and David Fair.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Artist, illustrator, writer and lo-fi innovator, Tobin Sprout was the super-productive partner of Robert Pollard in the legendary Guided By Voices. The gifted songwriter returns with a pensive, expansive part autobiographical new album 'Empty Horses'. Here he's part Townes Van Zandt, part John Prine, part Robbie Robertson at his retrospective best. The album is a meticulously observed study of America and Americana (not the music, but the state of mind). An alternative American Songbook, if you will, a collection of laments to simpler times and the struggle for what's right, peppered with an examination of faith and the search for a sense of justice. Close up and personal, 'Empty Horses' is a poignant carefully etched experience, a rolling journey in modern times, nodding back to tradition, a personal snapshot filled with honesty. 'Empty Horses' is released on vinyl LP and also a deluxe bookback CD, beautifully packed with 24 pages of paintings and lyrics by Tobin Sprout, a true collectors piece for fans of Tobin's music and art. "The perfect aural encapsulation of melancholy: in turns somnambulant, romantic and all-consuming" Rolling Stone // "Raw, honest and often revelatory" Consequence Of Sound //

New album from kosmiche folk-rock quartet Modern Studies. A glorious compendium of haunted disco hallelujahs, mercurial krautrock chorales, cosmic pop adagios and euphoric, resilient, anthems. "The Weight of the Sun" sees principal songwriters Emily Scott and Rob St John further their warm, esoteric field studies with Pete Harvey and Joe Smillie, as previously reconnoitred on "Swell To Great" (2016) and "Welcome Strangers" (2018). There is a strange familiarity, and a welcome strangeness, in the quiet alchemy of Modern Studies. "The exact point where Fairport Convention meet Jim O'Rourke at a remote Scottish railway station." - Tim Burgess "Melancholic magic. recalls Johnny Marr's hazier reveries and the febrile, electrified folk of Polly Harvey's Let England Shake." - UNCUT "Setting the standards for intelligent pop" - Record Collector

Brigid Mae Power paints expansive songs that are effortless, hypnotic and folk-oriented like Judee Sill, Bill Callahan and Sharon Van Etten. The third album from the celebrated singer/songwriter, 'Head Above The Water' is a coming of age opus featuring a ground-breaking amalgamation of traditional folk and country - an engaging blend of strings, bouzouki, piano and Power's distinctive vocal make this an achingly beautiful body of work. Recorded in analogue studio The Green Door in Glasgow with Alasdair Roberts co-producing alongside Brigid and Peter Broderick. It's a continuing tale of everyday survival; more diverse, different, a bigger canvas, with broader brushstrokes_ Country and traditional folk rub shoulders, making for a juxtaposition of threads, with added instrumentation from five musicians lured into the studio to provide larger dynamics.

Sing In A World That's Falling Apart

Release:2020 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
"What Black Lips do so well is tease the horror out of wholesomeness and recast golden-age rock'n'roll in a strange, discomforting light" Pitchfork. "Cosmic country that comes strutting off a dusty back porch with gritted teeth" Consequence Of Sound. It's country music but not as we know it which begs the question: Have these Bad Kids of 21st Century rock 'n' roll finally grown up on their ninth studio album? Are they at peace with themselves? Have they made a record their parents could listen to? The Black Lips new album 'Sing In A World That's Falling Apart' continues to flick the middle finger to one and all. This ain't another gaggle of bearded southern sons fleeing their collective suburban upbringings and collegiate music education. There aren't the usual clichés about drinking, honkytonks, and heartbreak. These are, after all, the same Black Lips who rescued the waning garage punk subgenre by not sounding or dressing their musical predecessors. They also dug contemporary hip-hop and punk and actualized themselves Like so many dramatic moments in the Black Lips career, 'Sing In A World That's Falling Apart' was born out of crisis. The band's stylistic evolution through decades of prolific touring and recording took them where no garage punk band had gone before - huge venues, network television shows, and major music festivals. Here Black Lips are at their grimiest, most dangerous and equipped with the best collection of songs since the aughts. Skidding onto the asphalt in a shower of sparks, they roll on with an unapologetic southern-fried twang, pacing the beast, every now and then dropping a psycho howl into the rubber room madness lurking underneath the truckstop fireworks. This ain't your granny's country album. And conversely this ain't your mama's Black Lips.

Crystal Clear Vinyl with download. Fenella is the latest project from Jane Weaver - musical polymath and one of the most respected electronic composers of recent times - and her long-term bandmates Peter Philipson and Raz Ullah. Having already released three critically-acclaimed LP's within the last five years Weaver's creativity continues to expand ever further into the (modern) kosmos with this reimagined soundtrack to Marcell Jankovics' cult animation Fehérlófia. Released in 1981, Fehérlófia is a remarkable animation based in ancient folklore with a narrative culled from mythical tales of the Scythans, Huns and Avars. Weaver's richly emotional and psychedelic music offers a perfect contemporary dialogue with Jankovics' astonishing visual aesthetic. A mixture of ambient textures, menacing drones and spine-tingling vocals combine to create a lavish soundscape saturated with hypnotic moods and cinematic atmosphere. Fenella's self-titled LP is a continuation of Fire Records re-imagined score series.

1000 only. Long out of print, Howe Gelb's debut solo album `Dreaded Brown Recluse' is re-imagined on for RSD on brown vinyl. Back then, circa 1991 Howe's main squeeze Giant Sand were nothing short of prolific, songs were oozing from every pore, their creative id was effervescing, overflowing. With Giant Sand's colossal new album of '91 `Ramp' imminent what to do with those further outpourings? An idea: Disguise the band as Howe Gelb solo and produce a song cycle that, on repeat, melds into an eclectic stew that's easy to dip in and out of but still remains potent several hours in the oven. It's music as soundtrack to your day, a playful, anarchic piece of situationism that unfolds like all the best dramatic prose. `Dreaded Brown Recluse' includes a rethunk `Warm Storm' with strings (it also appeared on `Ramp'). It also features songs about faxing (how quaint), blankets and the insect world, as it straddles territory lost somewhere between psychotic ramshackle punk and slimmed down acoustic reverie.

50th Anniversary reissue with gatefold sleeve + bonus tracks as DL. A hugely influential album cited as the embryo for punk, grunge and beyond. A thinking man's rumination on alienation, the album is a game of two halves; side one tackling the thermo nuclear threat while side two traces riches to rags alienation in everyday London. First of a trio of ground-breaking albums that steered the band from the Blues into a heavier, more prog-based sound and a true reflection of their much-praised live sound.

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Pop
Two new tracks from Malmo's much-praised Hater. "One of the best bands in the world" Gorilla Vs Bear. Hot on the heels of last year's 'Siesta', their second studio album and first for Fire Records. It's a compelling slice of angular pop music; dysfunctional, dreamy, tempting, and teasing. 'Four Tries Down' presents an acute hand-tooled angular rasp, with its chiming guitar chopped out against a disengaged rhythm, topped with the dreamy ambience of Caroline Landahl's whispered confessional that cuts through the mesmerising hum. 'It's A Mess' is more subtle, with a teenage Nico admitting to inevitable boyfriend trouble. Drums rattle before cutting down to the basics to let Landahls pontificate as it all goes wrong - it's a beautiful mess.

White vinyl LP housed in a full colour sleeve, with lyric insert and download. The inventors of lo-fi indie rock return with a 15-track blast of melodic melancholy, all delivered by the smudged middle finger of Dinosaur Jr original Lou Barlow_ "The auteur of the subterranean lovesick blues." Houston Press Their first studio album since 2013's `Defend Yourself' and their first release with Fire Records, Lou Barlow, Jason Loewenstein and Bob D'Amico return with a smorgasbord of beautifully dysfunctional tunes harking back to their finest college rock anthems. It's Barlow at his introverted song writing best; matter-of-factly delivering a stream of self-questioning stories, punctuated by detuned guitars, spine-tingling time changes and throwaway one liners. A grainy post grunge postcard wrapped in bittersweet melodies with an aftertaste that's pure heartbreak. More songs about growing up wrong for those who continue to act surprised at life itself - all illegibly handwritten and lovingly submitted to vinyl.

central element to his creativity. Sitting neatly against his huge
back catalogue of solo records, these compelling and timeless
songs are alluringly melancholic and reflective.

2LP Gatefold. Fire Records reissue the 1978 classic debut punk record 'Crossing The Red Sea with the Adverts' on gatefold 2LP.

"Released after an ever growing live following and the string of successful chart hits The Advert"s debut has cemented its place in punk rock history.

From the sonic Armageddon which ushers in "One Chord Wonders" through to the deliriously protracted fade of "Great British Mistake", "Crossing The Red Sea" never put a foot wrong.

Created at the height of Punk, recorded with all the venom and passion which gave the era such vitality, "Crossing the Red Sea" was at once a statement of intent and a bellow of defiance, a refusal to take anything for granted, even its own brilliance.

More than that, though, the album defined and thus became the precious moment in time when the establishment rules of rock fell away, and new ones still had to be carved out.

And by those brittle standards, the Adverts weren"t simply crossing the Red Sea, They were parting it." - Dave Thompson
