Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeFrom The River To The Ocean ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $8.99
A fresh album from one of the stronger partnerships in avant garde jazz – sax titan Fred Anderson and drummer/percussionist Hamid Drake – joined by some of the finest Chicago based players for set of slowbuilding, generously spacious material that might be even better their previous album for Thrill Jockey! Anderson's sax and Drake's drumming are as intuitive to each other as ever, and some bits of the record have a dual bass sound that really pulls us in! Josh Abrams and Harrison Bankhead bring the bass, with a great cello part by Bankhead on one track, and Jeff Parker plays some nice guitar. A masterful record with more of an ensemble approach than its predecessor! 5 long (or longish), languorously gripping tracks: "Planet E", "Strut Time", "For Brother Thompson", "From The River To The Ocean" and "Sakti/Shiva".

Catherine IrwinLittle Heater ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2012. Used ... $2.99
The first solo album from folk-country singer and songwriter Catherine Irwin in a decade – and as much as we wish she'd put one out every year, we'll take what we can get – especially if the occasional record is as moving and beautiful as Little Heater! If you don't know this already, Catherine is the other principle voice of Freakwater – a band that doesn't get nearly as much credit for turning city folk onto country-leaning folk music as they've deserved over the years. There's a wearily soulful quality to Catherine's songs that sets her pretty clearly apart from other writers – which is especially impressive, given that she draws from traditional influences – and comes up with a mood that's really all her own. Recorded by Tara Jane O'Neil. Titles include "Mockingbird", "Dusty Groove" (Irwin's Dusty Springfield-inspired song that Kelly Hogan adapted into a gorgeous country soul anthem. . .and it's done by Catherine herself as a stripped-down, beautiful folk ballad), "Hoopskirt", "Sinner Saves A Saint", "We Must Also Love The Thieves", "To Break Your Heart", "Nightshade", "Pale Horse/Pale Rider", "The Whole Of The Law", "The Banks Of The Ohio" and more.

Sea & CakeOui ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2000. Used ... $4.99
Maybe the warmest record by the Sea & Cake – drawing a lot more from their earlier The Biz and Sam Prekop's solo album than their previous The Fawn, adding strings to a lot of the melodies instead of the electronic sounds. Sunny avant pop that manages to pull off a little bit of soulfulness with their trademark laidback charm. Tracks include "Afternoon Speaker", "All The Photos", "You Beautiful Bastard", "The Colony Room", "The Leaf", "Everyday", "Two Dolphins", "Midtown", "Seemingly", and "I Missed The Glance". CD

D Charles Speer & The HelixLeaving The Commonwealth ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2011. Used Gatefold ... $3.99
Brilliant stuff from D Charles Speer & The Helix – elevating loose honky tonk and country rock into a boundlessly creative realm! The musicianship is excellent and confident, but as far from fussy as can be – and they have a way of effortlessly recalling decades of regional Americana influences but pulling them all together into a unique stew unlike anything else. Here's a record we'll come back to again and again. Includes "Razorbacked", "Days In The Kitchen", "Le Grand Cochon", "Cumberland", "Alamoosook Echoes", "Rust In The Bay", "Battle Of The Wilderness" and "Leaving The Commonwealth". CD

Nobukazu TakemuraAssembler/Assembler 2 ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $3.99
It's been pretty hard to keep up with Nobukazu Takemura lately – Assembler is the second of 3 albums he's geared to release in as many months – but there are rewards aplenty for the dedicated souls that attempt to stick with him! Assember/Assembler 2 is probably the most abstract and lonely of his recent efforts. The 7 tracks (running over an hour all together) find the Osaka experimentalist deeply enmeshed in his avant electronics mode – static-drenched sound washes, atonal atmosphere, and sound bursts ranging from drawn out mood pieces to unexpected blow-outs are the order of the day. It's all served-up by Takemura himself, without the off kilter vocals of Aki Tsuyuko that made other recent efforts a bit dreamier. This one's more geared towards the abstract experimental crowd than the playful groove scene that Nobukazu guides through equally well. Tracks include "Conical Flask", "USINE", "Ligne A Haute Tension", Kino-ear", "Molla", and Sous Terret". CD

New TortoiseIt's All Around You ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Man, this is SO not the Tortoise that first set the underground aflame in the early 90s – the group has evolved and opened up in ways we never would have expected. With It's All Around You it's emerged with an airy, open, stargazing set of tracks that resemble the languid atmosphere of Tangerine Dream as much as they do early post rock! Gone, for the most part from early Tortoise is that strong, rubbery electric bass groove and tightly thudding live drum sound. It's All Around You retains the bright vibes and sputtering electronics of the TNT album, and the out front, almost rock & roll guitar lines of the Standards album – and adds an ever present, ambient synthesizer bubble of sound to surround the thing. It's all so catchy, too, and almost sunny. If Tortoise hasn't really broken any new ground this time, it's only because they're the ones who broke it in the first place. Tracks include "It's All Around You", The Lithium Shifts", "Crest", "Stretch", "Dot/Eyes", "By Dawn", "Five Too Many" and more. CD

New OvalSystemisch (2013 Record Store Day Release – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of moodier and more atmospheric efforts from Markus Popp's creatively fruitful mid 90s period! On Systemisch, Oval is essentially a trio, featuring Popp, Frank Metzger and Sebastian Oschatz – and it marks a pretty big step forward for 90s electronic experimentalism. There's a bit of a minimalist vibe, with a sound being introduced and then revolving, and evolving, in subtle ways that are hypnotic all the way. Titles include "Textuell", "Aero Deck", "The Politics Of Digital Audio", "Schoner Wissen", "Mediaton", "Oval Office", "Gabba Nation", "Post Post" and more LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 1500 copies. Includes code for digital download.)

New Sea & CakeFawn (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1997. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The Sea & Cake seemed to step up the electronic aspects of their trade a bit with The Fawn, with some breezy synth work here and there and subtly programmed drums and percussion. But the hallmark of the group is still sweet avant pop, which in its patented way manages to be soulful and breezy, yet charmingly reserved. Nice stuff by one of the most distinctive groups around. Tracks include "Sporting Life", "The Argument", "The Fawn", "The Ravine", "Rossignol", "There You Are", "Civilise" "Bird And Flag", "Black Tree In The Bee Yard", and "Do Now Fairly Well".

New Sea & CakeNassau (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A strong, earlier record from The Sea & Cake – which works in some more diverse elements than some of their later work – but even at this early point, they've got a distinctive style all their own! It kicks off with the rawish, angular rocker "Nature Boy", and is the album goes along, brings in the more signature Sea & Cake style of moody vocal melodies, avant jazz guitar and rhythmic influences, subtle electronics and solid leftfield pop songcraft. Other titles include "Parasol", "The World Is Against You", "Soft And Sleep", "Alone, For A Moment", "I Will Hold The Tea Bag" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Sea & CakeRunner (plus download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first full out new album from avant pop veterans Sea & Cake in a few years – and it's among their most outright irresistible efforts in about a decade! We've loved this band from day one – and earlier than that even, if you want to count each member's time in preceding groups – so we're not about to start taking them for granted. It's tried-and-true Sea & Cake on one level here – breezy melodies, warm vocals and a laidback charm – plus their ever unique mix of live instrumentation and electronics. That said, the songs stand out more strongly on The Runner than on some of their recent work. They're as vital as ever! Includes "On And On", "Harps", "A Mere", "The Invitations", "Skyscraper", "Harbor Bridges", "New Patterns", "Neighbors And Township", "Pacific" and "The Runner". LP, Vinyl record album

New Sidi ToureAlafia ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning sounds from Sidi Toure – an artist who's been making music for quite a few years now, but seems to get better and better with each new release! This set's got a wonderful sense of flow right from the start – a warm blend of Sidi's guitar and vocals with additional lead guitar from Kalil Toure, N'Goni from Abdoulaye Kone, and these basslines that percolate strongly throughout – adding an additional stringed sense of rhythm to the tracks, as Toure and other singers soar out forward on the vocals. The presentation has a positive feel, but without any commercial overtones – and definitely shakes free of any Mali cliches you might have from other overwrought recordings. Titles include "Mali", "Boro Gana", "Ay Hora", "Ay Takamba", "L'Eau", "Waayey", and "Gandyey". LP, Vinyl record album

New Sorry BambaSorry Bamba Vol 1 – 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful testament to the legacy of Malian singer, flute player and group leader Sorry Bamba – documenting his years leading the Kanaga Orchestra Of Mopti throughout the 1970s – and a great, vital release on Thrill Jockey! The region's musical heritage is intergral to Sorry Bamba's music, but it's also relevant and contemporary to its period and ours – with guitar, bass, organ and horns along with more earthy percussion. His style of songs is pretty amazing, too – and often done with a sense of humor that could be easy to overlook to outsiders – but there's no overlooking how great the music is. Beautifully done by Thrill Jockey, compilers Alex Minoff & Ian Eagleson – with input and insight from Sorry Bamba himself. Includes "Yayoroba", "Boro", "Gambari", "Astan Kelly", "Sekou Amadou", "Sayouwe", "Porry", "Aisse", "Bayadjourou" and "Sare Mabo". CD
