That's how I feel! Rhett Miller is an extraordinary songwriter —his best stuff is Paul Westerberg at-his-best good— and no one else here cares! No one cares!

Emily A Sprague's Water Memory/Mount Vision is good. Electronic/Ambient. Technically a re-release of two eps but there are a few bonus tracks.

False - Portent
This is an incredibly talented and very epic black metal 6 piece from my area. I have watched them develop since the beginning and their success has been incredibly gratifying to witness. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen. Their compositional prowess is astounding.

Out September 27:


From :


This limited edition and EXCLUSIVE bundle comes with a 14-track cassette featuring highlights from the box along with two additional unreleased tracks: the outtake "Asking Me Lies" and an instrumental of "I Won't" (Bearsville Version). The cassette also features the original, unused cover art for Don't Tell A Soul.

Back in 1987, Minneapolis rock and roll renegades The Replacements famously stole their Twin/Tone master tapes and threw them in the Mississippi River. A year later —while wrapping up work on their Warner Bros. album Don't Tell A Soul— the group absconded with a collection of their reels from Paisley Park studios. Thankfully, those tapes were spared a watery fate, and instead stashed away for decades by the band. Now they've been recovered to form the basis of The Replacements first-ever boxed set, DEAD MAN'S POP.

Although Don't Tell A Soul ultimately became the group's best-selling effort, The Replacements were unsatisfied with the sound of the record. The band has radically reimagined Don't Tell A Soul to create a 4CD/1LP set that features the album mixed as it was originally intended (Don't Tell A Soul Redux), along with a collection of previously unheard tracks (We Know The Night: Rare & Unreleased), and a classic concert from 1989 (The Complete Inconcerated Live).

The box features a newly completed mix of the album by Don't Tell A Soul producer Matt Wallace (based on his 1988 Paisley Park mix); a disc of unreleased recordings (including a session with Tom Waits); plus the band's entire June 2, 1989 show at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In total, the box includes 60 tracks–58 of which have never been heard before.

Presented in a 12 x 12 hardcover book —loaded with dozens of rarely seen photos— the set features a detailed history of the Don't Tell A Soul era written by Bob Mehr, who produced the box with Rhino's Jason Jones and also authored the New York Times bestseller Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements.

Mehr writes: "While it's impossible to unhear a record that's been around for three decades, this version, Don't Tell A Soul Redux, is the album the band made and intended to release. In addition to Matt Wallace's mix, Redux also restores several crucial elements from the sessions, including original drums tracks, vocal takes and tempos that were altered in post-production… [and] the band's original sequence of the album."

Wallace says: "The true spirit of The Replacements was always there on the recordings we did back in 1988, and now you can hear and feel it clearly… This was the project of a lifetime for me when we recorded it 30-plus years ago, and it's even truer today as we've finally fulfilled our original vision."

Paul Westerberg, Slim Dunlap, Tommy Stinson and Chris Mars started recording Don't Tell A Soul in June 1988 with Tony Berg at Bearsville Studios, but the chaotic sessions were cut short and mothballed. Nine unreleased tracks from Bearsville appear on Dead Man's Pop, including early versions of "I'll Be You," "Darlin' One" and "Achin' To Be" and the previously unheard "Last Thing in the World." The collection also features tracks the band recorded with Tom Waits, five of which have never been officially released: among them, "Lowdown Monkey Blues," "We Know The Night" and a cover of Billy Swan's "I Can Help."

The final two CDs of Dead Man's Pop capture the band performing live in Milwaukee during the "Don't Tell A Soul Tour." A few songs from the concert originally appeared on the promo-only EP Inconcerated Live (1989), but the bulk of the 29 tracks included have never been released. The entire show has been newly mixed by Brian Kehew (Ramones, The Faces).

Additionally, Dead Man's Pop will include Wallace's Don't Tell A Soul Redux mix on 180-gram vinyl.

Out October 4:



"The record is, in a weird way, an ode; this terrible stuff is happening, this deepening sense of creeping authoritarianism that weighs on everybody's psyche on a daily basis, and you're allowed to feel a lot of things at once. And one thing that is worth feeling, that is worth fighting for, is your freedom to still have joy even though things are going to SHIT." —Jeff Tweedy

A band I like called Tennis System - kinda shoegaze / hardcore crossover - have an album out in about a month.

The Soup Nazi 08.04.2019 06:05 PM

More or less a recent-ish/recent/new/upcoming releases data DUMP, avoiding some that have already been mentioned (Lea Bertucci, Oren Ambarchi, Royal Trux, etc.):

Sylvie Courvoisier/Mark Feldman - Time Gone Out

Sarah Angliss - Air Loom

The Minus 5 - Stroke Manor
With Corin Tucker, Jeff Tweedy, Linda Pitmon, Steve Wynn and more.

Chuck Cleaver (Wussy) - Send Aid

Kelly Moran - Origin EP

Fire! Orchestra - Arrival
Bitchen cover of Chic's "At Last I Am Free".

Mats Gustafsson and Jason Adasiewicz - Timeless

Anthony Braxton - Quartet (New Haven) 2014
Anthony Braxton/Taylor Ho Bynum/Nels Cline/Greg Saunier in a 4CD set with titles like "Improvisation One (For guitarist/composer Jimi Hendrix)" and "Improvisation Three (For vocalist/composer James Brown)". (The other two are Janis Joplin and Merle Haggard). I fuckin' love it already!

Steve Gunn - "Be Still Moon"/"Shrunken Heads"
He also covered Neil Young's "Motion Pictures (For Carrie)" for the Amazon Original series:

The Hold Steady - Thrashing Thru The Passion
I wonder whether the title is a nod to the R.E.M. song.

Joyero (Wye Oak's [and Lambchop's!] Andy Stack) - Release The Dogs

Mount Eerie - (fireworks & wind)
One track for a buck. "fireworks and wind recorded July 4th, 2019 from outside town. no big deal. no reason for this recording. no physical release. the wind gradually increases."

Art Ensemble Of Chicago - We Are On The Edge

Joan Shelley - Like The River Loves The Sea

Dyson Stringer Cloher - "Falling Clouds"
One track, probably a preview of the album they recorded at Wilco's The Loft with Glenn Kotche on drums/percussion.

Tropical Fuck Storm - "Who's My Eugene [Radio Edit]"
Of all the things the internet supposedly wiped out, one would think a "radio edit" should be damn near the top. Unless your attention span is really shitty, that is; on the other hand, this is just 33 seconds shorter than the upcoming album version, so it ain't gonna tilt the cart. ANYWAY, it's Tropical Fuck Storm - if you don't want everything by them you're probably a Coalition supporter or summat.

Juliana Hatfield - Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police

Bill Orcutt - Odds Against Tomorrow
This one looks awesome. Out October 11.

Guided By Voices - Warp And Woof

Spoon - Everything Hits At Once: The Best Of Spoon
New song "No Bullets Spent" also out as 7"/virtual.

Brian Eno with Daniel Lanois & Roger Eno - Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks Extended Edition
"The original Apollo album remastered for the first time + For All Mankind, a brand new album of 11 instrumentals". Wait, so my 2009 or whatever it is CD version is not remastered? I'm pretty sure it is; I think they mean "first time remastered on vinyl".

Jeff Mills - Moon: The Area Of Influence

Lloyd Cole - Guesswork
Tom Verlaine guests!

Violent Femmes - Hotel Last Resort
Tom Verlaine guests! (No, I'm not becoming senile; he guests on this album too).

Robyn Hitchcock/Andy Partridge - Planet England EP
"Andy Partridge and I are thrilled in our own dismal, British way to announce that the recordings we began in his shed in Swindon in 2006 are now complete and released on APE records. After a long hiatus we returned to the project last year, adding a fourth song to three completed ones, enough for an EP entitled PLANET ENGLAND." —RH

Incidentally, Anna Calvi did the score for Peaky Blinders, season 5:

Hopefully it will become available in one format or another eventually.

Clairo released an aoa couple weeks ago. I had no idea it was coming. Pretty subdued. Nice mesh of her styles, way more heavily rock oriented.

FINALLY got the new Bertucci. Good. Not mind blowing, but I had been looking forward to it a while.

This album by YATTA is pretty neat. It's kind of spoken word/beat poetry influenced, but with some unique soundscapes. Some parts remind me of Animal Collective vocals on Hollindagain.

d.sound 08.12.2019 05:35 PM

Oh and there's a new Jefre Cantu-Ledesma album. Nice ambient guitar, a horn on one track. Peeps here would like it.

Out October 4: Tomeka Reid Quartet - Old New

Tomeka Reid, cello
Mary Halvorson, guitar
Jason Roebke, bass
Tomas Fujiwara, drums

_tunic_ 08.15.2019 04:14 PM


Stofwolk’ is the first music from Ottla, the new 6 piece band around guitarist and composer Bert Dockx (Flying Horseman; Dans Dans). It’s a spacious and moody guitar epic, mysterious and exciting.
Listen to the full track:

Drawing by Mori Yuzan. Animated by Visuals Internationals.

‘Ottla’ is the latest addition to our roster, their debut album is due this fall on Unday records (in collab with WERF Records), more on that soon.

Following Dans Dans and Flying Horseman (and the odd solo-venture; see Strand and Transit), Ottla is the latest outlet for the boundless energies of Bert Dockx. He gathered an outstanding sextet with an unexpected – double drummer – line up featuring:

Bert Dockx (guitar)
Frans Van Isacker (alto sax)
Thomas Jillings (tenor sax)
Nicolas Rombouts (bass)
Louis Evrard (drums, percussion)
Yannick Dupont (drums, percussion, electronics)

Ottla's self titled debut album is due fall 2019.
