Blonde Redhead - Barragan CD

On Sale Now!
Price: $12.99


The ninth studio album from the Alt-Rock band. Barragan is ambitious. Tracks like 'Dripping', 'The One I Love', and 'Defeatist Anthem (Harry And I)' have all the emotional punches of previous high water marks in the band's repertoire - the just feel slightly less calculated, more serendipitous. Formed in 1993, Blonde Redhead have never made records for fame, or for money, or to ape their teenage heroes, or to indulge any of the dumb, ephemeral impulses that clog up the blogosphere with dumb, ephemeral music. They make music, simply, because they have to. (OUT 9/2/14)

   


Code Orange Kids - I Am King CD


Price:  $9.99


I Am King is the new album from Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids), recorded at God City Studios by Kurt Ballou. Unpredictability is the law as Code Orange navigate through their distorted world. Title track 'I Am King' shifts from 'heavy' to 'hard to define' through the use of unorthodox guitar work/percussion and chaotic structure. While songs 'Dreams in Inertia', 'Starve', and 'Bind You' all wear an art-rock crown while claiming a metallic throne. It's not just melodious experimentation though, 'Unclean Spirit', 'My World', and 'Thinners of the Herd' show Code Orange reimagining what aggressive music can be. Elevating and expanding what can be done within the confines of it without leaving it behind entirely. Proving that Code Orange are true artists and not just 'kids' anymore. (OUT 9/2/14)

Half Japanese - Overjoyed CD


Price:  $11.99


Overjoyed, the first album in 13 years from legendary punk band Half Japanese.

Without exaggeration, Half Japanese is one of the most important bands in the history of music. Overjoyed was recorded and produced by John Dieterich of Deerhoof, and ranks amongst the best albums of the band's catalog. (OUT 9/2/14)

Yob - Clearing the Path to Ascend CD


Price:  $17.99


Two years after leveling the expectations of critics and listeners alike with Atma, doom powerhouse YOB unleashes Clearing the Path to Ascend, an aptly titled album for what will undoubtedly be the trio s crowning achievement. As is the YOB way, the tracks here don t simply offer a vacuous glimpse into the already riff-soaked doom genre they demand the tandem attention of mind, body, and soul. True ascension requires a destruction of the barriers that prevent movement onward. Unsurprisingly, YOB pummels any and all obstacles with absolute authority, clearing the way for a genuinely visceral listening experience, the culmination of a musical journey approching two decades in length. YOB s music is not unlike the path that s led them to their current place among heavy metal s elite: slowly building from a hushed ethereal vapor into the thunderous and masterful tumult of sonic domination. The ethereal mists of Eugene, Oregon, no doubt provided the perfect catalyst for founding member and vocalist Mike Scheidt to call up the signature of surging doom that has earned YOB its current position as one of the most respected and revered bands in all of heavy metal. While giving due credit to cornerstone influences such as Cathedral, Sleep, Electric Wizard and Black Sabbath, YOB defines a sound wholly singular and utterly devastating in its cathartic enormity. The echoes of progressive rock and drone that have underscored YOB s music on past releases are fully realized on Clearing the Path to Ascend, as each track forges into the next with a ferocity that s as unhinged as it is utterly focused. Drummer Travis Foster wields rhythmic furor with bombastic precision while bassist Aaron Rieseberg coils around the sonic tide with an unforgiving churn all in a deadly synchronicity with Scheidt s uncanny vocal range and its pendulous movement between the triumphant howls of a medieval madman and the earth-splitting growls of a war-battered titan. Clearing the Path to Ascend is a work as ethereally compelling in its aesthetic as it is merciless in the magnitude of its sound. (OUT 9/2/14)
