Beach Boys – Live In Japan ’66
William Bell – Bound To Happen
Bobo Yeye – Belle Epoque in Upper Volta
From his studio in central Bobo-Dioulasso, photographer Sory Sanlé documented a nation’s transformation from colonial foothold to cosmopolitan oasis. Bobo Yeye: Belle Epoque in Upper Volta provides an intimate look into the landlocked nation’s pop culture explosion of the 112''_GATEFOLD_BLEED970s. A melange of community elders and emboldened youth spill from the brightly lit confines of Sanlé’s Volta Photo into the dimly lit nightclubs of Upper Volta’s cultural capital. Accompanying this hardbound monograph are dozens of rare and evocative recordings spread over three discs by Bobo-Dioulasso’s musical titans: Volta Jazz, Dafra Star, Echo Del Africa, and Les Imbattables Léopards.

The Luna Long Players Box Set gathers the band’s five albums from the 90’s as well as a compilation of demos and B-sides recorded contemporaneously. They are all housed in a beautiful textured canvas box. Accompanying the records is a 12″ x 12″ book featuring archival imagery, an interview with Dean Wareham conducted by Noah Baumbach, and an oral history with the band and their producers. As the majority of these records were never released on vinyl outside of limited pressings, this is a boon to longtime fans and new listeners alike.

Maxwell – Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite
Muuy Bien – Age of Uncertainty
Rafter – XYZ

She & Him – Christmas Party
Soft Hair – Soft Hair
Soft Hair are Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust (LA PRIEST / Late of The Pier). The album’s recording took place over five years around the pair’s solo careers and outside lives. After the dispersion of Late of the Pier, whom Connan supported on tour in 2009 (the first time the two met), Sam traveled in the far east, Africa, Europe and elsewhere, spending time inventing his own instruments, producing and directing. Eventually re-emerging as LA PRIEST in 2015 with debut solo album Inji. Connan meanwhile released the albums Forever Dolphin Love and Caramel and toured the world extensively, working with artists such as James Blake, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Vince Staples. The songs on this album were written and recorded in a wide array of locations using methods that neither Mockasin nor Dust had used previously. As a result, the record gives the listener a view into an exotic world with a blend of familiar, unfamiliar and unconventionally attractive sounds.

Jim Ford – Allergic To Love
Goat – Requiem
098787117110goat-smlIn a culture obsessed with content, saturation, and continual exposure, it’s rare to find artists who prefer to lurk outside of the public eye. Thomas Pynchon is perhaps the most notable contemporary recluse—a virtually faceless figure who occasionally creeps out of hiding to offer up an elaborate novel steeped in history and warped by imagination—but for crate diggers and guitar mystics, Sweden’s enigmatic GOAT may qualify as the greatest modern pop-culture mystery. Who are these masked musicians? Are they truly members of the Arctic community of Korpilombolo? Are their songs part of their isolated communal heritage? Their third studio album, Requiem, offers more questions than answers, but much like any of Pynchon’s knotty yarns, the reward is not in the untangling but in the journey through the labyrinth. Western exports may have dominated the consciousness of international rock fans for the entirety of the 20th century, but our increasing global awareness has unearthed a treasure trove of transcendental grooves and spellbinding riffage from exotic and remote corners of the planet. GOAT’s previous albums World Music and Commune were perfect testaments to this heightened awareness, with Silk Road psychedelia, desert blues, and Third World pop all serving as governing forces within the band’s sound. But GOAT’s strange amalgam isn’t some cheap game of cultural appropriation—it’s nearly impossible to pinpoint the exact origins of the elusive group’s sound. The fact that they pledge allegiance to a spot on the periphery of our maps bolsters the nomadic quality of their sonic explorations. With Requiem, GOAT continue to rock and writhe to a beat beholden to no nation, no state. GOAT’s only outright declaration for Requiem is that it is their “folk” album, and the album is focused more on their subdued bucolic ritualism than psilocybin freakouts. But GOAT hasn’t completely foregone their fiery charms—tracks like “All-Seeing Eye” and “Goatfuzz” conjure the sultry heathen pulsations that ensnared us on their previous albums. Perhaps the most puzzling aspect of Requiem comes with the closing track “Ubuntu”. The song is little more than a melodic delay-driven electric piano line, until we hear the refrain from “Diarabi”—the first song on their first album—sneak into the mix. It creates a kind of musical ouroboros—an infinite cycle of reflection and rejuvenation, death and rebirth. Much like fellow recluse Pynchon, rather than offering explanations for their strange trajectories, GOAT create a world where the line between truth and fiction is so obscured that all you can do is bask in their cryptic genius.

Hopeton Lewis  – Take It Easy
Moondoggies – Don’t Be A Stranger
Seattle’s Moondoggies play timeless American music. Warm three-part harmonies, gothic Rhodes organ, and wanderlust guitar mark a sound rooted in boogie blues and cosmic country. Whipsmart songwriting leads to hook-heavy tunes that bristle with originality. Shades of gospel, blues, rock, and country commingle, and wall-of-sound harmonies radiate joy and passion. The influences of The Band, The Byrds, and especially early Grateful Dead are evident, though The Moondoggies’ lyrical economy and compositional sensibility render these tracks fresh and unique.
Oasis – Be Here Now
Pied Piper – The Pinnacle of Detroit Northern Soul
Otis Redding – The Complete & Unbelievable Dictionary of Soul

Shonen Knife – Pretty Little Baca Guy

Shovels & Rope – Little Seeds
Little Seeds is as loud as we’ve ever been and it’s as quiet as we’ve ever been. It’s our most personal record and reflects some of those extremes we’ve experienced both sonically and lyrically. It has been nothing short of a harrowing couple of years, full of beauty and sorrow. We got served an adult portion. We grew up. From raw and primal electric guitar feedback slammers to mandolin led ballads, it’s just us being ourselves…and stretching. – Shovels & Rope
Silver Apples – Clinging To A Dream
Sleep – Sleep’s Holy Mountain
Suede – Coming Up
UFO – Hard Rock Legends
Dwight Yoakam – Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… dwightDwight developed a love for bluegrass music at an early age, and for years has wanted to record an all bluegrass album.
