If you ever visit our actual webpage to read this list, you might notice a new button on the menu bar. We’ve added a webshop. Now those of you not located in Edmonton, or those wondering if we’ve still got copies of the International Harvester box set in stock or maybe a Planar 6, can just hop on to our site and check. We won’t likely have EVERYTHING on there but who knows. For now we are focusing on the things you can’t walk into your local drug store to buy other big releases will also wind up on there too as we move forward. It’s still a work in progress and we are slaving away to add inventory to the site, but it’s slowly coming together and we thought, it might be easier to share it with everyone and get feedback as we go. You can also place pre-orders for some upcoming releases or put things on hold for pick up in store. We hope you enjoy!

Ornette Coleman: The Atlantic Years (Rhino) 10 LP Box
Ornette Coleman recorded one of the greatest bodies of work in jazz during a 22-month-long burst of creativity. Between 1959 and 1961, the saxophonist/composer released six studio albums on Atlantic Records that helped usher in the avant-garde, free jazz movement. Those albums, along with more than two hours of session outtakes, are featured together in the ten LP box set The Atlantic Years, all with newly remastered audio by John Webber at AIR Studios. Several of these titles are long out-of-print on vinyl. The Ornette Coleman Legacy, featuring six songs originally released for the first time in 1993 as part of the CD box set Beauty Is A Rare Thing, makes its vinyl debut. The albums featured in the set are: The Shape Of Jazz To Come (1959), Change Of The Century (1959), This Is Our Music (1960), Free Jazz: A Collective Improvisation (1960), Ornette! (1961), Ornette On Tenor (1961), The Art Of Improvisers (1970), Twins (1971), To Whom Who Keeps A Record (1975), and The Ornette Coleman Legacy (1993). The ten LPs are pressed on 180g vinyl and presented in replica European-style 1960s jackets in a side-loading slipcase. A 12 x 12 booklet with new liner notes written by renowned author-music critic Ben Ratliffand rare pictures taken by legendary jazz photographer Lee Friedlander round out the essential package.

Destroyer: City of Daughters (Merge) LP
Reissue on RED vinyl !! In the hallowed Destroyer discography, the early trinity of City Of Daughters / Thief / Streethawk: A Seduction holds an important place; for not only does it document Dan Bejar’s evolution from lo-fi bedroom tyro to bona fide master of the rock album, it also contains a massive percentage of superlative Destroyer “classics.” 1998’s City of Daughters features some of the first steps out of the demo-tapey experimentation of earlier recordings, with songs like “Comments On The World As Will” refining the sound of that stripped-down earlier work, and the seminal “No Cease Fires” offering us the first taste of just what a full-band Destroyer might conjure. 2000’s Thief naturally went further down that road, and from the opening strums of “The Temple” to the arty quirk of “Queen of Languages” to the gentle, jagged comedown of the title track, it soon became clear that Dan Bejar was master of a singular songcraft– and one that was only just getting started.

Julie Doiron: Desormais + Heart & Crime (Jagjaguwar) LP
Julie Doiron’s stunning album Désormais, originally released via Jagjaguwar in 2001, marked a departure from the Canadian artist’s grunge pop releases in the ’90s. Like its title might suggest, the intimate record is sung almost entirely in French. Across its 10 tracks, Doiron builds a disarming and warm atmosphere – through minimally-composed fingerpicking, her soft voice steers a wounded sound. Even for the English-speaking listener, the cohesion of the LP’s subdued, immersive atmosphere looms. Heart and Crime, released in 2002, traverses much of the same territory. It’s a companion to its predecessor, similarly vulnerable and scarce compositionally, save for flickers of brass or a piano line flitting in or out. Again, its weight comes from its somber simplicity, in Doiron’s wistful voice and lyricism. Désormais and Heart and Crime serve as visceral time capsules for Doiron’s own personal history. It’s fitting, then that the records are also distinct placeholders within the Jagjaguwar canon. Désormais and Heart and Crime came at a time just as the label began to widen its scope. Doiron’s work was amongst the first in a new era of Jagjaguwar artists that expanded the label’s roster and aesthetic, ushering in new and diverse definitions of their early dedication to emotional dissonance. Désormais was limited to CD and the Heart and Crime vinyl has long since been out of print. This 2LP reissue replicates each album’s original art and has been specially designed to create the illusion of two front covers.

Jeremy Enigk: Return of the Frog Queen (Sub Pop) LP
Jeremy Enigk performed with legendary indie rock band Sunny Day Real Estate from 1993 to 2000. In 1996, following the band’s first breakup (which lasted from 1995 to 1997), Enigk released his first solo album, Return of the Frog Queen. Representing a major shift in sound, it features backing from a 21-piece orchestra as he performs striking, dramatic, chamber-pop compositions that demonstrate the full breadth of his talents as a singer, musician, and songwriter. The album was produced by Greg Williamson, who also produced Sunny Day Real Estate’s 1998 comeback album, How it Feels to Be Something On. Return of the Frog Queen has been out of print since its original 1996 pressing. This reissue includes the original album, remastered in 2018, plus digital bonus tracks from Enigk’s 1996 live session on Seattle radio station The End.

Feel Alright: In Bad Faith (Pleasance) LP
Calgary-based garage rockers Feel Alright release their latest LP In Bad Faith. The album marks the full-length follow-up to 2011’s hilariously titled Hahahahahaha, though the group also released the “Oahu Ohio” 7-inch in 2012. In Bad Faith was recorded at frontman Craig Fahner’s home studio with fellow musicians Brady Kirchner and Matthew Learoyd, then mixed by Pat Kearns at his Mojave Desert cabin. Some of the songs were edited and adjusted over the course of months, while others were written and laid to tape unexpectedly quickly. “When I started Feel Alright, I was living in the US and I started writing and recording music as a means of conjuring an idealized sense of home from a distance,” Fahner tells Exclaim! “In Bad Faith feels very much like a negotiation of what it’s like to actually be in that home — seeing it as a container of warmth, comfort, conflict, turbulence, love, death, food, sleep… The songs run the gamut between nostalgic power pop love songs to darker ballads reflecting on what it’s like to go home again, when you know you can’t go home again.”

Kassin: Relax (Luakabop) LP
A not-so funny thing happens when you get divorced: your friends ask for advice on how to deal with their own relationship struggles. Maybe that’s why Alexandre Kassin’s new album, Relax, has two songs about this incredible heartbreak. First there’s “A Paisagem Morta,” a dark bossa nova tune about those initial moments once the breakup is final, when you begin to rediscover yourself. “The lyrics are about trying to keep things happening,” says Kassin, a leading producer and instrumentalist in Brazilian music. Then there’s “As Coisa Que Nos Nao Fizemo,” a mid-tempo song about divorce. Here, above twinkling chimes and stilted drums, Kassin keeps the vibe loose, reflecting upon the ways he and his former partner failed each other. In a way, these songs are therapeutic; Kassin himself went through a very bad divorce. “It’s just now getting better,” he says. Relax isn’t all gloom and doom, though. Across 11 tracks, Kassin flirts with Latin rhythms, Brazilian pop, and straight-ahead soul, using this varied sonic array to tell imagined tales of death, drug usage, politics and fate. On the deeply personal “Momento De Clareza,” Kassin sings of his sixth sense. In 1996, he and his band were slated to fly on the TAM Transportes Aéreos Regionais Flight 402, which struck two buildings and several houses and killed all 95 people on board. Kassin was finishing an assignment and had the foresight to leave sooner than expected, eluding the ill-fated flight by a day. The contrast here is intriguing: the arrangement itself feels bright and danceable, yet the theme is incredibly sullen. Such is the dichotomy of Relax, a record that speaks directly to the yin and yang of everyday life, and the uncertainty that comes with simply existing. Despite their upbeat, pop-centric arrangements, Kassin tackles heavy, thought-provoking themes. “Estricnina,” or Strychnine in English, is a self-described “strange tale.” “It’s a person propositioning another to take Strychnine,” Kassin says. “It’s an experimental samba with dark lyrics and happy sounds.” Similar in theme, “Comprimidos Demais” is about a couple that uses pills to control their mood; “O Anestesista,” Kassin says, is the most politically charged song on Relax. “In this climate,” he continues, “we wish we had a personal anesthetist to help you forget about what’s going on.” In the end, Relax isn’t Kassin’s most conceptual release. This one’s rooted in dreams and surrealism, but it’s still grounded enough to reach listeners where they are. “I wanted to make something with different arrangements and different aesthetics,” Kassin concludes. “I wanted to explore a different, diverse world.”

Mary Lattimore: Hundreds of Days (Ghostly) LP
Memories – places, vacancies, allusions – are fundamental characters in Mary Lattimore’s evocative craft. The Los Angeles-based harpist recorded her breakout 2016 album, At The Dam, during stops along a road trip across America, letting the serene landscapes of Joshua Tree and Marfa, TX color her compositions. In 2018, from a restorative station – a redwood barn, nestled in the hills above San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge – emanates Hundreds of Days, her second full-length LP with Ghostly International. The record sojourns between silences and speech, between microcosmic daily scenes and macrocosmic universal understandings, between being alien in promising new places and feeling torn from old native havens. It’s an expansive new chapter in Lattimore’s story, and an expression of mystified gratitude. A study in how ordinary components helix together to create an extraordinary world.

Bart De Paepe: Pagus Wasiae (Beyond Beyond is Beyond) LP
For over 10 years, Bart De Paepe has sated the appetites of psychedelic searchers with his label Sloow Tapes. A peerless curator, De Paepe has unleashed crucial underground transmissions ranging from paint-peeling Japanese rock to bedroom American Primitivism in microscopic editions. Those fortunate enough to have heard five or six of Sloow Tapes’ releases may be prepared for what “Pagus Wasiae”- De Paepe’s latest solo offering – has in store. The Stekene, Belgium-based artist’s Beyond Beyond Is Beyond debut, “Pagus Wasiae” trades in lysergic texture. Like Tangerine Dream’s early work, “Pagus Wasiae” casts off a ragged rock shore into a bubbling sea of electronics and navigates by dark starlight, leaving in its wake shadows and smoke. De Paepe charges waves of synth ambience, swirls clouds of electric guitar and summons subtle beats of the earth to make “Pagus Wasiae” a fully enveloping and dynamic listening experience-astral traveling without moving. Cluster, Taj Mahal Travellers, and Pink Floyd’s deepest space excursions may be waypoints to “Pagus Wasiae”, but ultimately the destination is the journey and Bart De Paepe has drawn a new map and laid it to tape for us to discover. – Jeff Conklin (WFMU)

Pedro the Lion: It’s Hard to Find a Friend (Jade Tree) LP
It’s Hard to Find a Friend is the debut full-length effort by Pedro the Lion; a solid indie rock album with plenty of lyrical talent to spare. Upon its release in 1998, the record was an instant hit, propelling singer/songwriter David Bazan into the consciousness of newfound fans around the globe and topping many critics’ lists, making it a must for any Pedro The Lion fan. 2018 is the 20th anniversary of the original release of the album and its been remastered for this new vinyl reissue from Epitaph Records. In early 2006, Bazan retired the Pedro The Lion moniker to continue on with solo work under his own name. In December of 2017 Bazan announced that Pedro The Lion will reunite after eleven years for a new album and a worldwide tour.

Quiet Slang (Beach Slang): Everything Matters But No One is Listening (Polyvinyl) LP
There’s something almost cheeky about the title of James Alex’s new project: Quiet Slang. As the name implies, Alex is embracing minimalism, smothering the fuzz in favor of a cello, a piano, and his voice. In October 2017, Quiet Slang released We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags, an EP comprised of two Beach Slang songs and two covers from The Replacements and Big Star. Consider it an introduction to what Alex calls “chamber pop for outsiders,” because it simply serves as prelude to Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, a collection of 10 Beach Slang covers. The project’s seeds were planted just six months after Beach Slang’s formation, when Alex was asked to a solo Tiny Desk Concert for NPR. “That was just me, my guitar and a clumsy excuse for charm. But, yeah, the response was beautifully unexpected and really nudged my thinking,” he says. “Even now, at almost every show we play somebody’s like, ‘I got turned onto your band from that NPR thing. You should make a record like that.'” A successful solo tour solidified the idea in Alex’s mind, but he says he wasn’t content to make a “campfire record,” elaborating that he “wanted it to have more weight than that.” Alex linked up with longtime co-producer Dave Downham for the project, who worked with him in bringing on cellist Dan Delaney and pianist Keith Giosa. Rounding out the crew were Stacey Downham, Matt Weber, Charlie Lowe and New Jersey quartet The Warhawks, who lent their voices to evoke what Alex describes as a “back alley choir.” The songs that spoke first and foremost to Alex were songs that he feels never quite achieved the vision initially had for them: “Future Mixtape for the Art Kids” and “Warpaint,” both from 2016’s A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings. “Future Mixtape For the Art Kids” is a rousing document of rebellion on A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings, but the subdued strings and soft piano of Quiet Slang reveal a love story among outsiders, a midnight connection in dim streets as beautiful as they are cruel. And while the gritted teeth of “Warpaint” remain in its quiet rendition, the empathy coursing through Alex’s call to strength and spirit here conquers his anger. “Warpaint,” and the album itself, closes with the last verse being played in reverse, a choice that helps to further distinguish Beach Slang from Quiet Slang. “I wanted the record to end not with a word, but a feeling,” he says, “even if it’s uneasy or hopeful or whatever. Just some weight of feeling.”

Sleep: The Sciences (Third Man) LP
If we had more than 2 copies of this on the shelf, it’d be the pick of the week, but thus far, our stock has been real scarce. But if you hurry, there’s a couple here right now. Sleep unleashes their first full-length album of new recordings since 1998 on Third Man Records.

Featuring guitarist Matt Pike (High On Fire), bassist/vocalist Al Cisneros (Om) and new drummer Jason Roeder (Neurosis), “This is Dopesmoker Beyond the Thunderdome, a lawless, yet demanding exploration of Sleep’s stock-and-trade, and hopefully just the hazy horizon of riffs to come” (NPR Music).

Sunny & The Sunliners: Smile Now, Cry Later (Big Crown) LP
When it comes to living legends in the Texas and Latin Music pantheon, few have been at it longer and are more revered by their fans and peers than vocalist, songwriter and bandleader Sunny Ozuna. Born and raised in San Antonio, where he still resides, Sunny became a star right out of high school in the late ‘50s and hasn’t looked back in the six decades since. Among countless other honors and notable achievements, Sunny was the first Latino artist to appear on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand (in 1963). His classic 45s regularly change hands for hundreds of dollars among collectors around the world, affirming his timeless appeal. Smile Now, Cry Later is a 12-song platter from 1966. As with most Sunny LPs, this is a mix of soulful originals – most notably, “Smile Now, Cry Later” and “Put Me In Jail” – and provocative, wide-ranging covers. Cases in point on the tributes side of this great album include the Sam & Dave shouter “Hold On I’m Comin'”; “Forever,” made famous by both the Marvelettes and Marvin Gaye, and a song that Sunny performs to this day; and the ‘60s Louis Prima crooner special “Just A Gigolo.”

Rafael Toral: Sound Mind Sound Body (Drag City) LP
In 1987, Rafael Toral began making his own compositions and solo recordings. Thirty years later, these recordings sound remarkably prescient and perfectly timeless – almost fresher today than when they were first released. Rafael has spent the time since then developing his conceptions, with continued explorations in the many records that have followed. On the 30th anniversary of his start, Drag City is reissuing Sound Mind Sound Body and Wave Field, his first two long out-of-print albums, on vinyl for the first time. Sound Mind Sound Body was partly inspired by exploring some of the working principles of Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, extrapolated by Rafael via a unique signal path leading out of his guitar. He paid notice to the massive impact of discreet gestures, creating slow-moving tones and spacious orchestral resonances, drifting and droning with glacial majesty, hardly recognizable as guitar much of the time. The first of these pieces were recorded in 1987, and in 1994, they were released on Portugal’s AnAnAnA, with material evolved in the years between, producing a remarkable equilibrium over an hour’s listening. Further evidence of the necessity for gradual development exists in subsequent reissues: for the 1998 Moikai reissue, “A E 1” was recorded, and for this edition, “A E R 7 E” was rerecorded and the material for “A E 2” was recorded for the first time ever – all from original processes as noted, and none of which will cause the listener to notice a change in the otherworldly atmosphere.

Thirty years later, these recordings sound remarkably prescient and perfectly timeless – almost fresher today than when they were first released. Rafael has spent the time since then developing his conceptions, with continued explorations in the many records that have followed. On the 30th anniversary of his start, Drag City is reissuing Sound Mind Sound Body and Wave Field, his first two long out-of-print albums, on vinyl for the first time. Wave Field, released in 1995, was a departure from the first album into new composition methods involving the dirty textures of rock guitar, sounding in the open ears of many listeners (like Jim O’Rourke, who issued the disc in the US on Dexter’s Cigar) as a synthesis of disparate elements – a nexus where Alvin Lucier, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and Eno blend together. Here, the clangorous potential of the guitar was emphasized, giving a metallic edge to the two extended pieces and “radio edit” coda. The jacket paid subtle tribute to My Bloody Valentine, which, along with the radio edit, suggested a harmony between musical directions as wildly disparate as minimalist experimental and rock. Today, such a paradoxical intent is more widely considered as a part of the artist’s purview. This allows the sounds of Wave Field and Sound Mind Sound Body to sit perfectly among the forward-reaching music of today – as it continues to evolve in our ears, moving ever towards the next conception of listening space.

Wayfarer: World’s Blood (Profound Lore) LP
World’s Blood is black metal of the American West. Wayfarer recorded the album in the Winter of early 2018 at The Thousand Caves in New York under the watchful production of Colin Marston. A reflection of the Rocky Mountains and high plains of their native Colorado, this album tells a story that is uniquely American. Drawing influence as much from the dusty, dark Americana of the “Denver Sound” and the scores of epic Westerns as they do the fury and melody of black metal, the band brings something original to the table with a sound that is at once aggressive and honest. The album paints a hallucinatory picture of the Western frontier, and the haunting presence of the blood in the soil from a culture lost to time. First brought together in 2012, the members of the band aimed to create something original, in order to contribute back to the pantheon of the great and timeless music that shaped them as people. Releasing their debut album Children Of The Iron Age in 2014, which was later picked up by Prosthetic Records, they would tour alongside the likes of Dreadnought, Falls of Rauros, Anicon, Velnias, and Haunter. Their second album Old Souls was released in 2016 and continued the band’s progression to a sound not easily confined by genre tags, more refined and decidedly darker. World’s Blood marks Wayfarer’s debut with Profound Lore Records, as they step into their own in the music underground with their strongest and most fully realized vision to date.

Wooden Shjips: V (Thrill Jockey) LP
In tomorrow? Wooden Shjips, long-time leaders of the contemporary psychedelic movement, expand their sound with V. , augmenting their already rich sound with laid back, classic summer songs written by singer/guitarist Ripley Johnson as an antidote to the pervasive anxiety both political and natural. The music is a balm against the noise and negativity. Lead single “Staring At The Sun” is a nearly 8 minute laid back, slowly building narrative, whose lyrics tell of a gentle push and pull between the desire for sun and escape and the tug of anxiety, with peaceful resistance winning the day and guiding the tone. Johnson also gives us a few of his signature traveling songs such as “Eclipse,” and “Red Line,” both showcases for the stellar rhythm section of Omar Ahsanuddin and Dusty Jermier. Their unparalleled sense of groove and restraint leaves ample room for Nash Whalen’s keyboard flourishes.

Various: Outer Himmilayan Presents (Sacred Bones/Dark Entries) LP
Dark Entries and Sacred Bones team up to release the early discography of UK synth-punk and Deathrock label Outer Himmilayan Records. Between 1979 and 1982, Nick Blinko and Martin Cooper’s Outer Himmilayan Records released 7-inches by three short-lived bands – The Magits, Soft Drinks, and S-Haters – who would nonetheless cast a massive shadow on the UK’s burgeoning post-punk/anarcho punk scene. Outer Himmilayan Presents collects all of the music found on those original records, along with rare and unreleased tracks by all three bands. It’s a snapshot of a period of frenzied creativity by some of the UK’s most thrilling experimental punks.
