Desire II Green Colored Vinyl LP

desire-ii-greensplit1_1800x

Excellent 2009 release from Desire, the Montreal group produced by Johnny Jewel. The moody cosmic disco sound of II still sounds great, and let’s not forget how perfect “Under Your Spell” was in the film Drive.

Chromatics Kill For Love Split Colored Vinyl 2LP

chromatics-killforlove-split_1800x

Another fine LP from Italians Do It Better, Kill For Love by Chromatics, is also back on split colored vinyl. Production is also handled by Mr. Jewel, and the emotive rock of “Lady,” “Back From The Grave,” “These Streets Will Never Look The Same,” and more are as #MOOD af as ever.

Johnny Jewel Lost River Soundtrack 180g Colored Vinyl 3LP

taang-groupshot-greyIG

TAANG! reissues! The Boston independent label has churned out over 200 releases since Curtis Casella launched it in 1984, and here’s a series of releases pressed directly from original masters. First is Answer The Call Vinyl LP from Kilslug, and the scuzz rock band’s 1986 LP has remained an underground classic with its potent mix of punk, noise and metal. Next up is the debut album, Devils Night Out Vinyl LP from the mighty Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and the punk-ska that these gentlemen bring still feels like a raging all-night party. Also available is a cult-favorite shoegaze full-length from 1993. The album, Blonder Tongue Audio Baton Vinyl LP, is Swirlies’s best known release, and it’s such a precious relic of the ’90s indie scene. Boston’s Negative FX dropped one album in 1982, Negative FX and the band’s fast, hard sound is back on vinyl. Lastly, the debut LP from another another Bean Town outfit, Slapshot, is reissued, and the 1988 album was also important in the hardcore straightedge movement that was prevalent during the time.

The Rolling Stones Reissues

The Rolling Stones Let It Bleed Colored Vinyl LP

rollingstones-letitbleed_1800x

Going strong since 1962 and getting better with age! The Rolling Stones are true living legends, and here’s a round-up of recent reissues of choice selections from the band’s catalog. Originally released in 1969, Let It Bleed is heavily influenced by gospel, blues and country, and the album contains classics like “Gimme Shelter” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” This is the 2013 reissue of the LP, fully mastered and pressed on 180g clear vinyl.

The Rolling Stones Exile On Main St. 2LP

rollingstones-exileonmainst_1800x

Exile On Main St. dropped as a double album in 1972, and it contains favorites like “Rocks Off,” “Rip This Joint,” “Shake Your Hips,” and “Tumbling Dice.” Widely considered one of the best works from Stones, the 18-tracker also finds itself on plenty of “greatest of all time” lists. Jagger, despite his “boredom” with rock & roll, is in top form, and Keith Richards shreds away with some of the rawest playing to be recorded.

The Rolling Stones Some Girls 180g Vinyl LP

rollingstones-somegirls_1800x

The year was 1978 when The Rolling Stones released Some Girls, and disco was in full swing. In response, and as a result of Jagger being somewhat blase about rock & roll, the band incorporates bits of the glitzy genre into the album. The move ended up being very well received, and in addition to a Grammy nod, tracks like “Miss You,” Shattered,” and “Beast of Burden” continue to receive love.

Only 1000 copies per title, and each release is hand-numbered. The duo’s 3rd album, Surrender, was originally released in 1995, and featured some big guests such as Noel Gallagher of Oasis. Come With Us followed in 2002 with a more streamlined “dance” sound, and Push The Button, released in 2005, brought home the first Grammy for the Manchester electronic outfit. We Are The Night dropped a year later in 2006, and Further is the 2009 full-length from the Chemical Brothers that featured no quest appearances. Big s/o to Astralwerks for pressing these up!

Three seminal trip-hop releases from one of the main architects of the genre, Massive Attack.

Massive Attack Protection Vinyl LP

massiveattack-protection_1800x

Also back in print is the trio’s 1994 follow-up Protection. Another classic that defined the downtempo sound, tracks like “Karmacoma,” “Weather Storm,” “Spying Glass,” and of course, the title tune, still offer much to be enjoyed.


Massive Attack V Mad Professor No Protection Vinyl LP

massiveattackvmadprofessor_1800x

The last of the Massive Attack reissues is a re-visioned edition of the aforementioned Protection, and the Mad Professor dubs out the album with mixing board tricks that make No Protection Vinyl LP a classic in its own right.
