New AnikaAnika EP ... LP
Invada/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy .... $11.99
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

New VariousMinimal Wave Tapes Vol 1 ... LP
Minimal Wave/Stones Throw, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
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 BoardwalkBoardwalk (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A cool duo with a very spare, spacey sort of sound – almost a warmer, more lyrical version of Suicide for the 21st Century! Boardwalk are the duo of Mike Edge and Amber Quinto – with Mike handling guitar, keyboards, piano, bass, and drums – but often abstracted or processed in these cool ways that make all the acoustic tones a bit electric – drifting in space alongside Amber's slightly dark vocals. The music's definitely got an ear for pop, but with a spooky sort of quality too – thanks to all the use of distortion. Titles include "Crying", "Keep The Wolf", "What's Love", "I'm Not Myself", "High Water", "Oh Well", "Some Things", and "I'm To Blame". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus download.)

New JontiTwirligig ... CD
Stones Throw, 2011. Used .... Out Of Stock
Jonti's full length debut for Stones Throw – delivering with this supremely catchy, yet unbridled and densely-layered Twirligig – showing a love for primitive electronics, sunny psych melodies, erratic, sampler pastiche experimentalism and moody avant pop of all kinds. It's really all about the mood here, although there's layers and layers of vocals. There's a boundary-busting love of psych, pop and sampler pastiches of all kinds projects – from Van Dyke Parks to Madlib and myriad points between, but he reigns it all in brilliantly. Includes "Hornets Nest", "Nightshift In Blue", "Nodlews Way Home", "Spooky Sport", "Firework Spraying Moon", "Bat Milk", "Twirligig", "Snickers Hiss", "Cyclic Love" feat Otayo Dubb, "Koi Moons Daughter", "Begone Slumber" and more.

New VariousForge Your Own Chains – Heavy Psychedelic Ballads and Dirges 1968-1974 ... CD
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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. CD
