VariousMinimal Wave Tapes Vol 1 ... LP
Minimal Wave/Stones Throw, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $15.99
Sparsely furnished underground new wave from Europe and North America in the early 80s – the first official Minimal Wave compilation from Veronica Vasicka's Minimal Wave label and the arbiters leftfield funky errata at Stones Throw! This is some of the deepest and rarest music from the nascent electro rock and post punk electronic underground of the 80s – most purportedly released on scarcely distributed cassettes, if they were ever really distributed at all beyond the hands of the artists involved – which is fascinating and everything, but the real story here is the exceptional quality. It's incredible stuff! The sound is impeccable, those primitive synth melodies and drum machine rhythms sounding sharp and clear. The songs are great, too, maybe a bit darker edged than the mainstream of the time, and without the cheesy and poorly aging pop sheen of the hits, but we have no doubt the artists here could have been stars had the material reached the right people. It's all wholly ripe for discovery and we already can't wait for Volume 2! Titles include "Way Out Of Living" by Linear Movement, "Flying Turns" by Crash Course In Science, ""Tempus Fugit" by Tara Cross, "Mickey, Please" by Bene Gesserit, "Reassurance Ritual" by Das Ding, "Radiance" by Oppenheimer Analysis, "Who's Really Listening" by Mark Lane, "The Cabinet" by Das Kabinette and more. 14 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album

New AnikaAnika EP ... LP
Invada/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great follow-up EP to Anika's addictive Stones Throw debut – a darkness-tinged batch of covers – bringing some great songs by The Kinks, The Crystals, Chromatics and Shocking Blue along with a pair of dubbed up versions of earlier Anika singles. There's a bit of no wave vibe of stark electronics and moody vocals, but Anika's got an overall presense unlike anyone else. Once again she gets some excellent production by Geoff Barrow of Beak> and Portishead. Titles include "I Go To Sleep", "He Hit Me", "Love Buzz", "In The City", "No One's There (Dub)" and "Yang Yang (Dub)". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousForge Your Own Chains – Heavy Psychedelic Ballads and Dirges 1968 to 1974 ... LP
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99 20.98
Rare psychedelia from all over the world – rock, soul, funk and astral folk – styles flowing cohesively on a single compilation thanks to the killer melodies, hard drums & percussion, and the impeccable taste of the Now Again/Stones Throw team! Forge Your Own Chains, simply put, is one of the best ever compilations of its kind. A few of the tracks have been reissued in some capacity and have recognizable names to rare psych and funk collectors – it's to Now Again's credit that they're going for a great experience rather than simply compiling the deepest, darkest rarities – but that said, all this stuff is obscure in the grand scheme and totally amazing. It features tracks from the US, Colombia, Sweden, Iran, Nigeria and beyond – tracks by Ofege, East Of Underground, DR Hooker, Baby Grandmothers, Ana Y Jaime, The Strangers and more. Amazing, hard grooving psychedelia for obscure rock and rare beat diggers alike! Titles include "Song Of A Sinner" by Top Drawer, "Smiling Faces Sometimes" by East Of Underground, "Forge Your Own Chains" by DR Hooker, ""Don't You Feel Me" by Damon, "Two To Make A Pair" by The Strangers, "It's Not Easy" by Ofege, "Somebody's Calling My Name" by Baby Grandmothers and more. 15 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album

New Firebeats IncFirebeats Inc (with bonus tracks) ... CD
HMV/RPM (UK), 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The one and only album from Norway's Firebeats Inc – a set that barely made a dent in the 60s, but which has gone onto have legendary status over the years! The album's got a groove that's partially borrowed from the Brit Beat combos of the time – but also has this harder edge underneath, a style that's kind of a European transmogrification of elements from R&B – but in different directions than you'd hear from the London scene. The guitars are great, and give the record a nice garagey style overall – even when the vocals and songwriting are polished – and titles include "Crying", "I Never Knew The Sun Could Shine So Brightly At Night", "More & More Each Day", "This Rain", "Baby Go Home", and "The Girl That I Depend On". CD features lots of bonus tracks from singles – including "Little Girl", "Let Me Tell You", "Jack The Ripper", "Oh Carol", and "Don't Throw Stones". CD
