Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

In March 2010, Animal Collective and visual artist Danny Perez (director of Oddsac, "Summertime Clothes" video, "Who Could Win A Rabbit" video, "You Can Count On Me" video , and Panda Bear live visuals) put on an installation called "Transverse Temporal Gyrus" at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. For the audio, each member of the band made individual sounds and songs. Over the course of two three-hour performances, the basic tracks were fed into a computer program that randomized the track order, and sometimes randomly combined stems from one track with stems from another. The program also panned the music in various directions around a 36 channel surround sound system that ran through 36 speakers set up from the top of the Guggenheim's l ramp to the bottom. The music on this 12" is a collage we made consisting of the original tracks, as well as live recordings made inside the Guggenheim before the doors were opened to the public. It will be the only physical format on which any of the music will be released. Coinciding with Record Store Day, we will also launch a website that recreates the audio computer program designed for the Guggenheim event. This will give listeners a new and unique collage each time the program is run. Danny Perez, who created the artwork for this 12", will also create video content for the website consisting of footage from, and projections used in the original event.

Format: 10" Vinyl
Label: Spiritual Pajamas
Quantity: 1000
Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

Is it safe to say that Will Oldham has rarely met a recording device he didn’t like? The man who goes by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy continues to document feverishly--and yet with fine discrimination--via a steady march through the canon of modern music: rock, country, gospel, keep on listing...

The great Leon Russell’s “Hummingbird” anchors this new 10 inch, and Bonny and his assembled cast of LA musicians render it an exercise in contrast. Using Russell’s famed Shelter Records soundboard for this one-off session--with its memories of Petty and Cale, and now owned by one Jonathan Wilson--Bonny introduces a pallet of musical soundscapes including the keys of "Farmer" Dave Scher, the porch-stomp grooves of Entrance Band rhythm section Paz and Derek and the claps of a thousand hands before letting the song "fly away" in a breeze of soulful psychedelia that stretches nearly twice the original’s length.

Next up: a cover of the traditional “Tribulations,” with Cairo Gang mainman Emmett Kelly, in a purely Appalachian reflection on judgment and fear and all manner of Old Testament threat.

Rounding out this powerful trio with a nod to Lightnin' Hopkins and Michael Hurley, Bonny makes another run (this time all by his lonesome) at Merle Haggard's "Because of Your Eyes".  This one lo-fi, wooly, and unscrubbed with that recorded-in-a-kitchen-near-a-
bottle-of-whiskey sound which is often attempted but rarely nailed.  Bonny hits it square.

This Record Store Day exclusive 10 inch on Spiritual Pajamas is being released in a one-time only pressing of 1000 copies.

"In the Yard" is the second single from the Bowerbirds' third album, The Clearing. The 7" is Record Store Day exclusive for the US, UK, and Benelux. As is often the case for bands that have found steady success, they had more time and better resources to make this album. This is a bigger record, then, with bolder sounds and a broader scope. Thing is, these songs don't cede to the increased production demands. The guitars and strings, codas and bridges simply make these thoughts more urgent, more vital and more necessary, but not one bit less permanent.

Brooklyn‘s CSC Funk Band were the first funk project for the legendary New York hip-hop label Fat Beats so it only makes sense that the band would record an exclusive vinyl-only tribute record to one of hip-hop‘s most influential groups-Gang Starr. In the spring of 2011 CSC Funk Band were tapped to play Fat Beat‘s Record Store Day pop-up store in their Brooklyn warehouse and to backup MC‘s in an all-out tribute to the late, great Guru, a high point being hip hop legend Masta Ace‘s take on the Gang Starr classic “Who's Gonna Take the Weight.” Inspired by the tribute session and encouraged by their peers, CSC Funk Band began recording instrumental tracks of music inspired by Gang Starr in Fat Beats Brooklyn studio. Some of CSC Funk Band members came to funk by listening to Gang Starr records, so the opportunity pay tribute to a major source of inspiration is considered no less than an honor. Sonically distilling their rhythm section down to the core ingredients of a classic old-school hip-hop beat with live bass and drums, then rebuilding the tracks with kraut-rock synth tones, psychedelic guitar swirls, and effected oboe, CSC Funk Band have emerged with this unique musical nod to one of hip-hop‘s greatest legacies. It is no coincidence that Electric Cowbell Records will release this limited edition 45 on Record Store Day 2012. Funk and hip-hop are essentially joined at the hip in vinyl culture and have shared shelf space together on record store and collector‘s shelves all over the planet for the last 30 or so years. CSC Funk Band salutes Gang Starr and the funk from where they came for Record Store Day.

In the 1980s, music defined the moment: “Video Killed the Radio Star” ushered in MTV, “Don't You (Forget about Me)” ruled The Breakfast Club, and “I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For” became the anthem of a generation. The 1980s were also the most visually provocative era of the last millennium. Every new vinyl single hit the stands wrapped in eye-catching sleeves that reflected the latest trends. Put the Needle on the Record is pop culture historian Matthew Chojnacki‘s definitive guide to 7- and 12-inch vinyl single artwork from the &lsquo80s. He presents and compares more than 250 vinyl single covers, representing nearly every prominent musician of the decade. Read the previously untold stories behind the 1980‘s most iconic images from the designers and visual talent behind Madonna, Prince, Adam Ant, Pink Floyd, Queen, The Clash, Pet Shop Boys, Kate Bush, and more. Coupled with exclusive commentary from more than 100 of the ‘80s biggest musicians, including Annie Lennox, Duran Duran, Run-DMC, Gary Numan, The B-52‘s, Erasure, OMD, Scorpions, The Knack, and Yoko Ono, this is an authoritative journey back to the songs and images that continue to influence our culture. Contains a foreword by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and an afterword by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran.

Deep Fried Boogie Band: "Frederick & Bill"
Colossal Yes: "Wishful Thinker"

Deep Fried Boogie Band is a self explanatory band name, as far as sound & style. The perfect experimental hard rock party band.

 

Personnel: Sam Coomes (Quasi, Crock) Chris Slusarenko (Boston Spaceships, GBV), Brian Mumford (Dragging An Ox Through Water) and Paulie Pulvirenti (No. 2, Nervous Christians) Colossal Yes rides the elastic waistband of low and high fidelity classification. A heavily treated backbeat lays foundation for swirling guitars and a speculative narrative. A perfect tune to accompany sipping beer slowly on a contemplative late night.

Personnel: Utrillo Kushner (Comets On Fire) Eli Eckert (Drunk Horse, East Bay Grease), Raj Ojah (Howlin Rain, East Bay Grease) Aaron Morgan (Finches, Golden Void) and Andy Asp.

This 2 LP set was cut from a cassette recording of DEVO’s show in Seattle, WA show in November ‘81. DEVO archivist Michael Pilmer (aka Devo-Obsesso), found the tape in a shoebox full of cassettes in Bob No 2’s home fifteen years ago, which he immediately transferred it to DAT. Afterward it promptly disappeared in the flotsam of Devo history. Here resurrected it stands as a testament to Prince’s claim “Devo, you guys are crazy!” Yes, crazy tight and relentless like Caucasian James Browns on marching powder. Enjoy.

Diva Dompé is L.A.’s foremost underground polymath: musician, model, scientist, artist and sometime raw vegan chef; she’s a special talent. She returns with “Cyborg Sweetie”, a heady push of chrome and fluorescence which tells a Deckard-like tale of unrequited “techno-love” that is addictive in the extreme. Whereas last year‘s marvellous full length, “The Glitter End”, revelled in a psychedelic fug of tropicalia and analogue squelch; the first glimpse of new LP “Moon Moods” suggests our heroine has honed her pop dynamic with a gloriously melodic precision.

A special RECORD STORE DAY release from Fire Records. 1991's ‘Erase You’ is as powerful and evocative now as it was when first pumped out by the sisters of New York‘s ESG. Along with other cutting edge, raw post-punk tracks such as Dance, Erase You inspired a host of musicians to pick up their instruments and their feet. Las Kellies share the same ethos, energetic and fun, but with a serious side too, they are undoubtedly huge fans having included a cover of Erase You on their self titled album on Fire last summer. Now, Las Kellies have reworked their version for this special limited edition Record Store Day release.

"Harey Haddix"

Coming on Record Store Day 2012 is the first Euclid Sessions single recorded at Euclid Records NOLA. The Baseball Project, made up of Steve Wynn, Scott McCaughey, Peter Buck and Linda Pitmon, perform “El Hombre” a rockin’ little number that should become a major hit in Los Angeles this summer. Sorry St. Louis, but we’ll try and get TBBP to write a number about Carlos Betran. The B-Side is “Harvey Haddix” a virtual who’s who from that small fraternity of pitchers that have pitched perfect games in the big leagues and the man who was left off said list. As far as I know, this is the only song that gives a shout out to former Indian and Brave Len Barker. The cover will be a lenticular 3-D design by artist Amelie Mancini. Proceeds will benefit the estate of the late great NRBQ drummer Tom Ardolino.

With his handlebar moustache and booming baritone, Lee Hazlewood was one of the defining stars of the late '60s. Though he's perhaps best known for his work with Nancy Sinatra (including writing mega-hit "These Boots Are Made For Walking"), Hazlewood did stunning work away from that particular glamour queen and found latter day champions in Beck, Sonic Youth, and Jarvis Cocker. Now, for Record tore Day 2012, we are kicking off our excavation of the Lee Hazlewood archives with this anthology,Singles, Nudes & Backsides, collecting the best of Lee's solo songs and duets from his LHI (Lee Hazlewood Industries) imprint.

As a true legend of the great American songbook and a rebellious pioneer who left behind a lengthy trail of echo laden pop masterpieces, Lee's influence continues to reverberate today. Between 1968-71, Hazlewood not only released his finest solo work, but produced numerous artists on LHI. From acid-folk and country-rock to pop-psych and soul, LHI issued dozens of long forgotten 45s and LPs. This series will include material from LHI(re-mastered for the first time from the original analog tapes), along with Lee's output for other labels, rarities, unreleased gems, and the films of Torbjörn Axelman.

See the sleeve: surrounded by nude girls, each wearing a fake moustache, Hazlewood wears a suit, ever-so-slightly awkwardly playing the role of the '60s playboy. Just like the picture, the songs present a man conflicted; he's the tender-hearted romantic, the broken-hearted loser and the rugged cowboy, all in one. It's there in the western swing of "Califia (Stone Rider)", the loneliness of "The Bed" and the bleak beauty of "If It's Monday Morning." Hazlewood's tremulous voice was made for duets (indeed, he wrote "Some Velvet Morning", one of the greatest of all time); here, Suzi Jane Hokom, Ann-Margret and Nina Lizell play counterpart to his manly tones.

In the wonderful liner notes, written by British journalist Wyndham Wallace, the writer describes his friend Hazlewood as "a curmudgeonly, unpredictable sort at the best of times, as impatient with his own talent as he is with other people." The Hazlewood Wallace knew was puzzled by the growing interest in him in the last two decades of his life, which was ended by cancer at age 78. That late flurry of interest saw him perform at the Royal Festival Hall in 1999, his first ever solo performance in the UK.

A natural wanderer, Lee lived a big life, fighting in the Korean War, working as a radio DJ in Phoenix, Arizona, setting up Viv Records in the '50s, working as a big-shot LA producer in the '60s, signing Phil Spector to his Trey Records label and prematurely announcing retirement in the wake of the mid-'60s British invasion. He didn't: Nancy Sinatra came along, the hits started flowing and he continued producing characterful solo albums into the '70s, which saw his move to Sweden. By 2007, Hazlewood was living in Vegas, and begrudgingly enjoying that flurry of latter-day interest in his work. This landmark compilation promises to create many more converts.

Tracks:
"I'm A Freak (Wicked Lady)"
"In Space No One Can Hear You Scream, Part I"
"In Space No One Can Hear You Scream, Part II"
"Master Of The Universe (Hawkwind)"

On October 18th, 2011, JEFF The Brotherhood joined by William Tyler (Tompkins Square), Loney Hutchins (Cleft Records) and Joey Plunket in recording Volume 3 of the Upstairs at United series. Each song in this session was recorded in a single take direct to ¼ inch tape then cut at 45 RPM for the ultimate listening experience.

JEFF The Brotherhood, the sibling duo of Jake & Jamin Orrall show their prog rock side on this recording. While the recording consists of only three songs those songs totalled enough time that they rocked out until they literally ran out of tape (as can be heard at the end of ''In Space No One Can Hear You Scream, Part II').' While traditionally a two piece, JEFF The Brotherhood, was joined in this session by William Tyler on guitar, Loney Hutchins on keys and crazy space sounds, and Joey Plunket on bass. The recording features an 11 minute version of tour favorite ''I'm A Freak'', an 11 minute cover of Hawkwind's ''Master Of The Universe'' and the 8 minute improvisational jam ''In Space No One Can Hear You Scream''.

This Rough Guide spotlights the front-runners of an explosive revival of African roots music. Listen to world-class artists, such as Staff Benda Bilili and the Bedouin Jerry Can Band, mix it up by infusing traditional sounds with the ultra modern, and by using ingenious homemade instruments, many of which are built from junk-yard materials. These are the sweet sounds of a movement which has not simply preserved, but truly reinvented musical genres with outstanding results.

When you wear a bunny mask for your stage act, people think you're a joke. It can get annoying. These five catchy, antisocial numbers might be Nobunny's reaction to people constantly expecting him to be cute. These songs show minimum fidelity and maximum punk attack, a necessary purging of pent-up hostility simmering behind the mask. RIYL GG Allin, The Queers, David Icke, Alan Partridge Project, Emerson Lake & Palmer Eldritch. A prelude to his Goner release coming later this year. Springtime for Nobunny!

Preteen Zenith is the new band from Tim DeLaughter of The Polyphonic Spree and Tripping Daisy. Tim began writing and demoing songs at home in Dallas in February 2009, with the intent of merely documenting new ideas. He continued the process in New York City that summer by subletting a small apartment to get away, as it were, and focus. He wound up recording the ideas on his laptop, and shared some on his blog (thefragilearmy.blogspot.com). Enter Philip E Karnats, a longtime friend and former bandmate from Tripping Daisy who went on to play with the Secret Machines and Ike Reilly and release a solo album through DeLaughter's Good Records Recordings label in 2006. Phil happened to invite Tim to Chicago just to hang out and do some improvising and recording. Tim was excited by the idea. "It had been a long time coming," DeLaughter says. "We'd had several conversations over the recent years about doing something together. We had no idea of what we'd do, but I was definitely looking forward to it!" Initially, the idea was to record and improvise and see what they came up with, something totally separate from the demos Tim had been working on. This brings us to the album "Preteen Zenith.”

Sacred Bones Presents: Todo Muere Vol. 2

DETAILS

Label: Sacred Bones
Quantity: 1000
Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

Tracks:
War: "In Your Arms (Final Fantasy)"
Led Er Est: "The Gold Cane"
Pop. 1280: "Neon Lights"
Slug Guts: "Adult Living"
Crystal Stilts: "Dark Eyes"
Wymond Miles: "Strange Desire"
The Men: "A Minor"
Föllakzoid: "Trees"
Amen Dunes: "Ethio Song"
Psychic Ills: "Mind Daze (Demo)"

Sacred Bones is thrilled to present our second Record Store Day compilation, Todo Muere Vol. 2, featuring ten songs - nine of which have been previously unreleased or only released in limited edition. The first song, by Copenhagen's War, is a complete break from the "At War For Youth" 7" we released in February, and is a modern-day, post-apocalypse love song for the ages. Led Er Est's "The Gold Cane" is an outtake from their new full-length lP out in May, and mixed by Chris Coady. "Neon Lights," by Pop. 1280, was the A-side of a split with Hot Guts originally released on Philly's Badmaster Records. "Adult Living," the brand new single from our beloved Brisbane recreational drug enthusiasts, Slug Guts, shows a far more refined, instrumental performance, paired lovingly with a fully unhinged performance by frontman JD. The Crystal Stilts track "Dark Eyes" appears on their eP, Radiant Door, but the song is so good we felt it needed to be released twice. Side A closes with "Strange Desire" by Wymond Miles, of the Fresh & Onlys; this is a preview of his first full length which we will be releasing this summer.

Stax Records was black and white coming together in a pioneering integrated music enterprise. Native Tennessean Jim Stewart founded Satellite in the late 1950s but soon joined up with sister Estelle Axton and rechristened the label Stax Records (the "St" and "ax" of Stax respectively). This ever-evolving Memphis-based label became one of the landmark touchstones of soul, R&B, and funk throughout the 1960s and 70s, its finger snapping logo brand synonymous with sonic quality and heartfelt integrity. Releasing hundreds of long players and 45-rpm singles during its heyday, the imprint and its many subsidiaries also birthed the legendary careers of Booker T & The M.G.'s, Otis Redding, and Isaac Hayes.

Never To Be Forgotten: The Flip Side Of Stax 1968-1974 is Light In The Attic's Record Store Day 2012 love letter to some of the lesser-known Stax Records artists, collected and presented in a knock-out 7" vinyl box set. Containing 10 faithfully reproduced 45-rpm singles from Mable John, Bernie Hayes, Lee Sain, Melvin Van Peebles, Roy Lee Johnson & The Villagers, and John Gary Williams, in addition to label stalwarts Johnnie Taylor, Mad Lads, Emotions, and Rufus Thomas, prepare to move, groove, and be enthused. Never To Be Forgotten comes housed in a beautiful flip-top container case replete with an extensive 84-page bounded booklet brimming with informative interviews with the surviving musicians contained within and liner notes by Memphis writer Andria Lisle, candid photographs, and personal anecdotes from Stax enthusiasts and label veterans Stewart, co-owner Al Bell, and promotions manager Phillip Rauls. Plus, a free Download Card for those turntable-less moments.

While Stax met a dramatic and disappointing fate in a tangled web of business, politics and finance in 1975, its enduring legacy shines on as one of the all-time great record labels. If industry competitor Motown billed itself as "The Sound Of Young America," then Stax certainly earned each and every letter of its namesake "Soulsville U.S.A." Though both labels brought black music to the United States and the rest of the world, Stax's underdog status combined with a deep catalogue of the most life affirming and authentic sounds around shall retain a special place in our hearts, never to be forgotten.

You may be familiar with the genre riddled with epiphanies from Talibam!‘s deep catalog but brace yourself for a real, sure-fire surprise when we reveal that their forthcoming album Puff Up the Volume is their “No School Rap” debut. That’s right. They say “if you went to rap school, you wasted your money.” The single “Step Into The Marina” takes us to a new melange where synth pop mixes with hiphop word-play, heralding their new sound. ‘Puff up the Volume’ is the outcome of a recording session after drummer Kevin Shea's big toe on his bass drum foot was crushed during a gong accident forcing him to play bass drum with his left foot for the rest of a tour and the subsequent recording session.

Previously released in 2005 on black vinyl, and limited to 500 copies.

Washington, DC-based sophisticates Thievery Corporation (producers Rob Garza and Eric Hilton) made several albums of superb down-tempo electronica prior to THE COSMIC GAME, and each release refined the duo's sensuous blend of deep, head-nodding beats, exotic world-music melodies, and lounge-ready atmospherics. This 2005 record builds on the strengths of the Corporation's previous albums, offering more stylish, club-targeted soundscapes to excellent effect. The series of all-star guests that parades through the album raises the Corporation's profile even higher.The Flaming Lips contribute additional instruments and vocals to the dreamy opener "Marching the Hate Machines (Into the Sun),"while the trip-hop-flavored "Revolution Solution" features Perry Farrell on vocals. Indian themes surface with vocalist Gunjan and sitar player Arjuna Pashwami on "Satyam Shivam Sundaram," and Verny Varela's singing gives the crowning touch to the bossa nova track "Ambicion Eterna." Even David Byrne makes an appearance, on the spacey mariachi boogaloo "The Heart's a Lonely Hunter." This fine mix of elements results in Thievery Corporation's most pop-oriented and accessible release, without sacrificing any of the group's ear-pleasing artistry.

Sufjan Stevens w/Rosie Thomas: "Here I Am!"

Split 7” featuring new music by Rosie and Sufjan. In the first installment of this series of collaborative split singles, Rosie Thomas and Sufjan Stevens raise, and attempt to answer, a variety of important questions: How do our intersecting lives affect one another? Are we alone in the Universe? Does this face mask make me look younger? Could there be even more auto tune?
The split single features the duo's entirely new take on Thomas' Where Was I, and brand new Stevens' track Here I Am!
Both artists feature on each other's song, along with a healthy dose of synthesizers, and take auto tune to existential proportions.

They formed in 2000 when Fantômas, ex-Mr. Bungle and Faith No More singer/keyboardist Mike Patton and ex-The Jesus Lizard guitar player Duane Denison started swapping tapes with the intention of collaborating. Duane Denison then recruited ex-Helmet drummer John Stanier (currently playing with Battles), while Mike Patton brought Melvins/Cows bass player Kevin Rutmanis into the fold. Three phenominal recordings came from this formation. Kevin left the band in 2007, taking his place is Trevor Dunn, ex-Mr. Bungle, Fantomas player. New record and tour brewing for summer 2012.

In the winter of 2011 Miss Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion traveled west from their forest home in Massachusetts to the metropolis of San Francisco. They met up with the Rondo Brothers (Galatic, Mark Foster, Handsome Boy Modeling School) who sometimes prefer drum machines to banjos and other times use banjos as drum machines. Miss Guthrie and Mr Irion lent their voices and musical talents to a small batch of songs in collaborative form and a wonderful new sound was born. East Meets West. Blueberry Mountain touched down on Potrero Hill. Beat-Folk has never sounded so good.

Continuing in the mission of reissuing the nuggets of the White Stripes’ back catalog, Third Man plays Dr. Frankenstein/matchmaker to two stand-alone songs from the high time of the year 2000. “Hand Springs” was originally released as a split-single with the Dirtbombs and included free in issue #19 of Multiball magazine. “Red Death at 6:14” was initially released on the Jack White-produced compilation “Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit” and was later made available as a one-sided single from the folks at MOJO magazine. Both songs are quintessential White Stripes jams and finally pairing them together here makes (arguably) one of the best Stripes singles ever.

Widespread Panic's 'Live Wood' combines the best songs from the band's 11-date, four-city dubbed 'Wood Tour' which marks Panic's first-ever fully acoustic tour. The tour is also the final set of shows before the band goes on a long-overdue hiatus for the remainder of 2012, following what has been a fantastic 25th Anniversary year in 2011. Wood Tour began on January 24 with two nights at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD, followed by three nights at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA, January 27-29. Panic returned to Denver, CO for three nights at The Fillmore, February 10-12 before finishing up with three shows at the intimate Belly Up-Aspen in Aspen, CO, February 17-19. Wood Tour dates bookended the sold out, four-night, fully electric Panic En La Playaextravaganza, featuring the band's first-ever performances in Mexico. Panic En La Playa took place in Puerto Morelos, Mexico on the Mayan Riviera, January 31st - February 3rd. All the dates were Sold Out. This is a unique musical experience as it is inspired by the classic sit n' ski run the band did in 1996 which was and still is a hit with the fans.

John Keane plays pedal steel on Blue Indian, acoustic guitar and vocals on Degenerate and Fishing.
