Primal Scream

Live At Levitation [Limited Edition Pink LP]

Vinyl: $25.99 Buy

Primal Scream's fusion of indie pop and dance broke down musical boundaries and changed the face of British pop music in the '90s, helping to push dance and techno into the rock mainstream. Their lasting influence is crystallized across nine tracks, on Primal Scream - Live At Levitation. Recorded in 2015 at Levitation in front of underground rock fans from around the world, the LP marks the next release in The Reverberation Appreciation Society's Live at Levitation series, which captures key moments in psychedelic rock history and live music in Austin, Texas - pulled from Levitation's extensive archives.

Amongst a lineup of classic Levitation bands - Thee Oh Sees, Night Beats, and frontman Bobby Gillespie's old band, The Jesus And Mary Chain - The Primal Scream set shows the band's undeniable creativity and unique place in the psych-rock canon, combining psychedelic garage rock, kaleidoscopic pop, and acid house to create a sound that's simultaneously of its time and ahead of it.

Known for their explosive live sets, the recordings show why Primal Scream is still considered one of the preeminent Scottish rock groups, with the Mercury-prize winning band blasting through tracks off of 1991's touchstone album, Screamadelica, its boogie-blues-influenced follow-up Give Out But Don't Give Up, and the heavily electro-influenced cult favorite XTRMNTR. Making it an essential collection for any Primal Scream or psych-rock aficionado.

Ray Charles

True Genius [2LP]

Vinyl: $34.99 Buy

Ray Charles is both one of the most iconic artists of all time as well as one of the hardest to define by genre. At the beginning of his career, he was dubbed the Genius of Soul for boldly combining traditional R&B with Gospel music and giving birth to Soul music. Yet this momentous musical accomplishment was just the beginning of a five-decade career in which he uniquely succeeded in virtually every genre. Ray's unique mastery of music allowed him to continue to explore all forms of music, freely floating between jazz, blues, pop, rock, soul and country while continuing to combine them in new, unprecedented ways. This two (2) disc vinyl collection illustrates the many musical "sides" of Ray by focusing each album side on some of the broader genre categories he visited most.

Magdalena Bay

Mercurial World [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Red LP]

Vinyl: $25.99 UNAVAILABLE

Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin began their musical journey together over 10 years ago in a Miami after-school music program. Connecting through their shared music tastes, the two formed a band that endured until the two parted ways for college. Not long afterward, Tenenbaum and Lewin reconnected and formed what we now know as the indie-pop duo Magdalena Bay.

The duo released their EP truly moments before the pandemic pervaded through North America, bringing their tour to an abrupt end. Resiliency illustrated at its peak, Magdalena Bay dipped their heads into a focused timeline, coming out of the pandemic with their debut album, Mercurial World. Magdalena Bay peruses the sound of experimental pop, crafting a synthy world that shatters genres and bends time to the pair’s will, elevating their sound to match their philosophical reflections. Lewin shared, “We spend all of our time together, and in some ways Mercurial World is about that particular sense of madness in containment. We live together and make art together; this immerses you in our creative, insular universe.”

Geographer

Down And Out In The Garden Of Earthly Delights

CD: $13.99 Buy

Geographer captured the interests of many over the last ten years through his unique indie-pop/rock sonic scapes that have solidified his sound. The solo project for Mike Deni, Geographer, is constantly evolving and reinventing his music, which began as an outlet for Deni after his sister's tragic death; born from a place of grief but ultimately capturing the optimism that is inherent to persevering through life. He continues his quest in music exploration with his new album 'Down and Out in the Garden of Earthly Delights' - which he was inspired to name after moving to LA from SF: "Everything feels possible here. Everything should be wonderful. That's the vibe of LA: You've made it to paradise! You should be really happy... and then nobody is. There's a lot of darkness - you have to sift through everything to find your own path." On the track "Giving In," Deni pours his heart out, shortly written after a tough breakup, equating the loss to being "Like when you hear a ringing in your ears and that's the last time you'll ever hear that frequency." The beautiful ballad shows off his pure vocal tone and features a gorgeous string arrangement from Daniel Hart (film composer: 'A Ghost Story' [David Lowery], St. Vincent). Deni's song "Get There Soon" was synced to an episode of the new season of Hulu's 'Love, Victor' & the "Verona (Stripped)" version of his iconic song was also featured in the CW show 'Republic of Sarah.'

Grateful Dead

Fox Theatre, St. Louis, MO 12/10/71 [5LP]

Vinyl: $127.99 Buy

Complete, previously unreleased performance by the Grateful Dead on 180-Gram Vinyl with 10th Side Custom Etching, Limited Edition of 12,000. Plangent Processes tape restoration and speed correction, with mastering by Jeffrey Norman, Produced for release by David Lemieux.

One of the shortest-lived iterations of the Grateful Dead was the band that existed December 1971 through March 1972. Jerry, Bob, Phil, Bill, Pigpen, and Keith formed a formidable version of the Dead that only played a few shows together before Donna Jean joined as vocalist, and before Pigpen would depart the stage for good in June 1972. What this sextet lacked in quantity of shows it made up for with creativeness, power, and inspiration. When Pigpen rejoined the Dead on December 1, 1971, after a few months off during which Keith had joined as piano player, the band was now an unstoppably powerful live juggernaut it hadn't been since the height of the Primal Dead era in late 1968-1969. Widely considered one of the best shows from the Pigpen-Keith era of the Grateful Dead, December 10, 1971 in St. Louis has it all: Pigpen singing lead on four songs including an 18 minute version of Good Lovin' and a very rare performance of Run Rudolph Run; a deep dive into the Dead's psychedelic recent past with a monster version of The Other One; plus plenty of the new material from earlier in 1971 like Bertha, Loser, Sugaree, and Playing In The Band. They also hit upon much of the music that would appear the following year on Europe '72, such as Jack Straw, Tennessee Jed, Mr. Charlie, and One More Saturday Night. And no Dead show of this vintage would be complete without the "hits": Truckin', Sugar Magnolia, and Casey Jones all make appearances. This is truly one of the deepest, most dynamic, exciting, and accessible live shows in the entire Grateful Dead canon.

Converge

Bloodmoon: I

CD: $12.99 Buy

“We wanted to do something grander than the typical four-piece Converge music.”

That’s CONVERGE vocalist Jacob Bannon talking about the seed of inspiration that eventually bloomed into BLOODMOON:I, the new collaborative album created by the legendary hardcore band alongside dark songstress Chelsea Wolfe, her bandmate/writing partner Ben Chisholm and Cave In vocalist/guitarist Steve Brodsky.

What began as a mutual admiration society between festival bands has grown into a collaborative project featuring the indie music scene’s finest song writers. Harrowing and atmospheric, triumphant and melodious, BLOODMOON:I is CONVERGE as you’ve never heard them before. Produced by Kurt Ballou at his God City Studio.

“It’s hard to find new ways to be creative, but I think we’ve been good at sort of forcing ourselves to do that,” Ballou says. “And this project is no exception. Getting Steve and Chelsea and Ben to contribute with us, we were kind of playing musical Cupid with all of them. But we had a feeling that if we got this group of people together, something powerful would come out of it.”

Mike Adams at His Honest Weight

Oscillate Wisely: 10th Anniversary Edition [2CD]

CD: $16.99 Buy

For ten years now, I've understood "Oscillate Wisely" as a play on the Smiths' instrumental "Oscillate Wildly"-itself, of course, a pun on Morrissey's muse, Oscar Wilde. This is not to say that anything about Mike Adams and his band reminds me of the Smiths (especially Morrissey), as much as the idea that rock bands like Mike Adams At His Honest Weight take shape more or less as a thesaurus of past ideas-winking at them, borrowing them like a library book, checking them out from across the room, cloning them.But the best stuff is more ineffable, far more than just cut-and-paste. There's a weird grandeur to Adams' music, starting with that fully formed, geekily majestic 2011 debut LP Oscillate Wisely, that I don't hear in anything else, before or since. A sense that Adams is guiding his listeners toward a cosmic joke so personal, so inscrutable, so funny ("funny"), if you give him your attention. It's in his blood, I think. He's not Oscar Wilde, but a uniquely Midwestern type of deeply sincere romantic and dyed-in-the-wool goofball cast from the mold of Hoosier icons like Letterman and Vonnegut. He doesn't want to believe in anything, he didn't create this body, he loves a parade. It's all in fun, but it gets so personal. Onstage, Adams is gregarious and playfully self-effacing, a college town denizen telescoping backwards to the brief early 90s moment when "college rock" entered the corporate suite, and performers forced to become showmen retreated to the comfort of their native tongue: irony. And Oscillate Wisely has demonstrated for a decade that earnestness and sarcasm are as intricately bound in rock and roll's lingua franca as hang-ups and chill hangs. I've never heard any musician summon everything I love about being from Indiana so perfectly. And I'm fucking old.- Eric Harvey
