Dawes – We’re All Gonna Die
For just more than two years starting in 1979, Dow Jones and the Industrials created roaring art-punk that collided with the confusion and celebration of technology. Their left field approach turned gnarled guitar riffs into unshakable melodies battered by synths and propelled with sharp lyrics. The songs railed against the boredom and cultural blandness of the Midwest and mirrored the paranoia of the era. As maverick studio producers and ace songwriters, the Industrials realized a vision and sound not only on par with contemporaries Devo and Pere Ubu, but still relevant and cutting today. Outside of bootleg compilation appearances and the overpriced collectors’ market, the music of DJI has been unavailable for 35 years until now. “Can’t Stand The Midwest 1979-1981” includes 29 songs remastered from the original tapes: The Industrials’ side from “Hoosier Hysteria,” the rare 1980 split LP with the Gizmos; 1981 7-inch EP; 9 unreleased studio tracks; live versions of unrecorded songs and more. A 12-page booklet features liner notes by the Gizmos’ Dale Lawrence and Keith Smith’s never before seen Indiana punk scene photos. The 2xLP also comes with a 70-minute DVD of a September 1980 club performance and download coupon. CD version has one less song.
Eskimeaux –
Year of the Rabbit “Year of the Rabbit” is Eskimeaux’s follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2015 full-length, “O.K.”. Rolling Stone wrote about “O.K.”, “Prolific artist Gabrielle Smith has crafted winsome songs that read like full-fledged novellas, at once capable of spitting truth, romancing the listener and offering consolation from life’s more gnarled moments”, while Pitchfork weighed in, “O.K. invites us to view the world through Smith’s eyes. The unassuming strength of her vision is what makes that invitation so worth accepting.” “Year of the Rabbit” picks up where “O.K.” left off, with 6 earnest pop songs teetering between heartbreaking and hopeful. “Year of the Rabbit” was produced by Florist’s Emily Sprague, with guest appearances by Sprague, Told Slant’s Felix Walworth, and Frankie Cosmo’s Greta Kline. Eskimeaux will be supporting “Year of the Rabbit” on a full US month long tour with Frankie Cosmos and Yowler.

Ian Hunter – Fingers Crossedihunter
180gm vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Ian Hunter’s latest studio album, Fingers Crossed unveils ten new, self-penned songs including his much-anticipated homage to David Bowie, ‘Dandy’. Recorded at HOBO Studios in New Jersey, and co-produced by Hunter and Andy York, the record features his magnificent Rant Band and is the follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed ‘When I’m President.’ As leader of ’70s British rock legends Mott the Hoople and as a hugely influential solo artist, Ian Hunter is widely revered as one of rock’n’roll’s most compelling performers and one of it’s most articulate songwriters. As author of such immortal anthems as, ‘All The Way From Memphis,’ ‘Once Bitten, Twice Shy’ and ‘Cleveland Rocks’ and the voice of such landmark albums as, ‘All The Young Dudes,’ ‘Mott,’ ‘Ian Hunter’ and ‘You’re Never Alone With A Schizophrenic,’ he remains a hero to fellow musicians and fans around the world. The compositions on Fingers Crossed see Hunter covering typically wide-ranging subject matter. ‘Dandy’, his fond tribute to David Bowie reflects on a relationship cemented in 1972 when Bowie produced Mott’s album All the Young Dudes and penned it’s hit title track. Even prior to this, with Mott, Hunter recorded four iconoclastic albums – ‘Mott The Hoople,’ ‘Mad Shadows,’ ‘Wildlife’ and ‘Brain Capers.’ The band’s artistic and commercial success continued with ‘Mott’ and ‘The Hoople,’ between them, containing the hits, ‘All The Way From Memphis,’ ‘Honaloochie Boogie,’ ‘Roll Away The Stone’ and ‘The Golden Age Of Rock ‘n’ Roll.’ On their final tour, they took out a then little known band, Queen, who would have a hit single with a song about their experiences, ‘Now I’m Here.’ It would be the only time Queen would open for anyone and the band members would stay long term friends with Ian, contributing backing vocals to his ‘All American Alien Boy’ album. Mott have also been credited by John Lydon (Sex Pistols) and Mick Jones (The Clash) as being one of the pioneers and inspirations behind the burgeoning punk / new wave movement. Later on, Ian would go on to produce Generation X’s ‘Valley Of The Dolls’ album and The Clash would play on Ian’s ‘Short Back ‘n’ Sides’ release. ‘Fingers Crossed’ continues Ian’s phenomenal run of Five Star critically acclaimed records following ‘Rant’ (2001), ‘Shrunken Heads’ (2007), ‘Man Overboard’ (2009) and ‘When I’m President’ (2012). Alongside Proper Records 30-Disc anthology box set, ‘Stranded in Reality’ due on 2 September, 2016 will be quite a year for Mr Hunter.
Led Zeppelin – The Complete BBC Sessions
In 1997, Led Zeppelin introduced the BBC Sessions, an acclaimed two-disc set of live recordings selected from the band’s appearances on BBC radio between 1969 and 1971. Later this year, the band will unveil THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS, an updated version of the collection that’s been newly remastered with supervision by Jimmy Page and expanded with eight unreleased BBC recordings, including three rescued from a previously “lost” session from 1969.

BBC Sessions was originally released in 1997 and has been certified double platinum by the RIAA. THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS builds on that collection with a third disc that boasts eight unreleased performances. In addition, the set includes extensive session-by-session liner notes written by Dave Lewis. For the first time ever, it provides accurate details and notes about all of the band’s BBC sessions.

Musical highlights on this new collection include the debut of a long-lost radio session that has achieved near-mythic status among fans. Originally broadcast in April 1969, the session included three songs: “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” “You Shook Me,” and the only recorded performance of “Sunshine Woman.”

Also included are two unreleased versions of both “Communication Breakdown” and “What Is And What Should Never Be.” Separated by two years, the performances vividly demonstrate the young band’s rapid evolution over a short period of time.

Various Artists – Afterschool Special: The 123’s of Kid Soulafterschool
The formula was simple: marry bubblegum and soul to the absolute sincerity of an enthusiastic child, cross your fingers and pray for airplay. But while the youthful sums of that formula may have grown up and walked away from their illusions of stardom, their permanent records remain. A decade removed from our acclaimed Home Schooled compilation comes a fresh batch of talent show titans. With enterprising parents, neighbors, and teachers turning play dates into recording dates, groups like Magical Connection, Little Man and the Inquires, and Five Ounces of Soul emulated the Jacksons, who’d made grade-school stardom appear easy as ABC. Afterschool Special: The 123s Of Kid Soul contains 19 tiny tunes ranging from bilingual D.A.R.E. anthem, to James Brown bio, to young love and life beyond the playground.

The California quartet’s third album, Calico Review, focuses on both the outer trappings of their home and surroundings, and the through line of darkness that suffuses life in L.A. county. Bearing the mark of four students becoming the teachers and sharing the sentiments of the town they call home, there’s a lot to learn from Allah-Las.

Willie Bobo – Dig My Feeling
Nacional Records is pleased to announce the release of legendary jazz percussionist Willie Bobo’s, Dig My Feeling. Working together with Bobo’s wife and son Eric Bobo (Cypress Hill), we have unearthed never before released gems along with some Bobo favorites for this Nacional Records exclusive release. The late Willie Bobo was a Nuyorican Latin Jazz percussionist who played with the likes of Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria and many more before becoming a band leader in his own right. With a style that captures the essence of Spanish Harlem in the 60s & 70s, Bobo’s blend of Boogaloo and Latin Soul has made him a unique and celebrated artist that has gone on to inspire jazz percussionists, breakbeat artists and hip hop pioneers alike. His work has been covered and sampled by artists like the Beastie Boys, Chet Baker, DJ Shadow and Santana. This latest addition to Willie Bobo’s catalog is one in which Nacional Records worked closely with Bobo’s family to curate a collection of songs that capture the essence of cool synonymous with Bobo’s name. With both unreleased and iconic tracks, Dig My Feeling does just that. It is a wonderful introduction to Bobo’s legacy as much as it is a lovely addition to any Latin Jazz connoisseur’s growing collection.

Tanya Donelly – Swan Song Series
Limited triple vinyl LP pressing. Tanya Donelly is a singer-songwriter and founding member of three of the most successful bands of the post-punk era. At the age of 16, she and stepsister Kristin Hersh formed Throwing Muses, which became the first American band ever signed to the influential British label 4AD. Not only did the Muses’ dreamy, swirling guitar sound prove highly influential on many of the alternative acts to emerge in their wake, but they also made any number of unprecedented advances into the male-dominated world of underground rock. Donelly later sidelined with Pixies bassist Kim Deal to form the Breeders, appearing on the debut LP, Pod. She later exited both the Breeders and Throwing Muses to form her own band, Belly. After issuing a pair of well-received EPs, Belly released their full-length debut, Star – a superb collection of luminous, fairy tale-like guitar pop songs – and for the first time in her career, Donelly earned commercial success commensurate to her usual critical accolades. Not only did the record go gold on the strength of the hit single ‘Feed the Tree’ but the band even garnered a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. Donelly would eventually disband Belly to raise her two daughters. She still found time to write and record music as a solo artist – Beautysleep, Whiskey Tango Ghosts and This Hungry Life were all exceptional albums and enjoyed critical success. The Swan Song Series is a collection of songs in which Donelly collaborated with friends, musicians and authors such as Rick Moody, Robyn Hitchcock, John Wesley Harding, Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang (Damon + Naomi/Galaxie 500), Bill Janovitz (Buffalo Tom), Tom Gorman (Belly), and Claudia Gonson (Magnetic Fields), and explored an impressive range that wasn’t always captured on previous albums. This exclusive collection includes the first 5 self-released digital EP’s plus seven brand new, previously unreleased, tracks on a 31 song set.

Daniel Lanois & Rocco Deluca –
Goodbye To Language Constructed entirely from the sounds of the pedal steel guitar, Daniel on the pedal steel and his mate Rocco Deluca on the lap steel with compositional rigour that recalls the 20th century dreamscapes of Ravel and Debussy, with a sense of sonic futurism and yet also with the naturalness that can only come from someone rooted in centuries of grassroots music. And while fusions of influence can sometimes lead to homogenisation in the blending of source material, this record does precisely the opposite: it’s about highlighting the highest common factors from a lifetime of influences. Or as he succinctly puts it: “I operate under the banner of soul music – music that just feels right and comes from a truthful place.” When a musician with as much expertise and experience as Daniel tells their own personal truth, you should really listen closely.

The Shaggs – The Philosophy of the World
Limited vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. Includes liner notes by legendary musician, writer and compiler, Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith, Nuggets). In 1968, three sisters from Fremont, New Hampshire strapped on their instruments and declared themselves The Shaggs. At that moment begun a peculiar tale that would last far beyond the group’s five-year run. Dot, Betty and Helen (and occasionally Rachel, the fourth sister) played in the group on the insistence of their father, Austin Wiggin Jr., who was convinced they were going to be big. The Shaggs entered Fleetwood Recording studios in Revere, Massachusetts to record their sole album, Philosophy Of The World, a collection of garage rock tunes that balanced charm and discordance in equal measure. Austin would spend most of his savings not only on the session but also on the manufacturing costs to press up 1,000 copies of the album (900 of which mysteriously vanished upon completion). The album failed to fulfill Austin’s expectations of rock stardom, though the group remained together until their father’s death. That might have been the end of it, until rock band NRBQ discovered a copy at a Massachusetts radio station and re-released it in 1980. Rolling Stone’s reviewer at the time described it as “the most stunningly awful wonderful record I’ve heard in ages”. Nearly 50 years later, the album ranks among the most polarizing LPs of all time. Some said it was the worst thing ever made. Others felt it was one of the great long players of the 20th century. Frank Zappa famously dubbed the band “better than The Beatles”, while Kurt Cobain placed the album at #5 on his list of Top 50 favorite albums. Decades later and one could argue that maybe Austin was right all along. We’re all here, still enthralled by the purity of The Shaggs.

Scott Walker – The Childhood of a Leader
4AD will release Scott Walker’s soundtrack to Brady Corbet’s dramatic film The Childhood Of A Leader on Friday 09 September, 2016. It is Walker’s first OST work since his remarkable score for Pola X in 1999. His dramatic contribution is at the heart of the film, a tense semi-fictional film, inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre’s short story of the same name, that follows the complicated formative years of young boy growing in France in 1918 who witnesses the signing of the Treatment of Versailles. Walker continues to work with long-term collaborators Pete Walsh (co-producer) and Mark Warman (orchestra, conductor), and were both involved in the live score performance by an orchestra of 80 that closed Rotterdam Film Festival last month.
Thomas Wander – Independence Day: The Resurrgence
Jack White – The Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 Double 180gm vinyl pressing in gatefold jacket including digital download. Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 is the definitive Jack White songwriting collection, spanning his 20+ year career. It includes White’s acoustic-based recordings with the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, and his acclaimed solo projects. The music included here is all-encompassing, highlighting White’s versatility, and the songs are presented with unique character in chronological order. As noted American author and music journalist, Greil Marcus, conveys in the albums liner notes: “The lack of electric guitar opens songs up to their own contrivance, and cuts out pretentions of seriousness and grandiosity in favor of the quiet, the ridiculous, the sly.” The completely remastered collection includes album tracks, B-Sides, remixes, alternate versions, and previously unreleased studio recordings and is a must for any fan of the genius that is Jack White.
