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".

New Sorry BambaSorry Bamba Vol 1 – 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1970s. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
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

New CalifoneQuicksand/Cradlesnakes ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $5.99
Califone perfects the meandering, deep blues-tinged psych-folk-rock electric and acoustic soul-baring Tim Rutili, Ben Massarella and co have been working on since the great Red Red Meat dissolved. There's a lot of soft, creaky melodies beneath all the clatter that cuts right to the bone – the group makes you work for it, but there's a helluva a lot of beauty to be dug here! Tracks include "One", "Horoscopic", Michigan Girls", "Your Golden Ass", "Town", "Mean Little Seed" and others. CD

Extra GoldenHera Ma Nono ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $8.99
A sublime second album on Thrill Jockey from Extra Golden – a more cohesive blend Kenyan benga and reverent American groove rock! The globally stretched partnership of the group continues on in honor of the deceased co-founding guitarist/singer/composer Otieno Jagwasi for this one. Opiyo Bilongo steps in on guitar and vocals for the set, joining guitarists Ian Egelson and Alex Minoff, drummer/vocalist Onyango Wuod Omari and some guest musicians – this time recording in the US. This time out the benga music takes a more profound lead role in the overall groove, and the soulful rock parts have fewer lead moments – and a subtle, intertwined elemental influence overall. Great stuff! Titles include "Jakolando", "Obama" (dedicated to our senator who helped them get clearance to travel to the US), "I Miss You", "Night Runners", "Street Parade", "Brothers Gone Away", "Love Hijackers" and "Hera Ma Nono".

Sea & CakeOne Bedroom ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $4.99
The boys turn the whimsy back up a notch for their sweetly synth-soaked latest effort, and Prekop's voice has never been so confident and out front. The tunes seem longer and have a more languorous feel than their last couple records, but the hooks are just as sweet. It took a long while to come to the realization, but we don't know what we'd do without a new Sea & Cake record every couple of years – each one fits like a favorite sweater. As kind of a bonus track there's a nice electronic cover of Bowie's "Sound And Vision" that sounds really out of character for the usually predictable (but no less enjoyable) group. Other tracks include "Four Corners", "Left Side Clouded", "Hotel Tell", "Shoulder Length", "One Bedroom", "Interiors", "Mr. F", and "Try Nothing". CD

New Sea & CakeBiz ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most engaging earlier albums by the Chicago avant pop greats The Sea And Cake! The Biz has a reputation as one the looser, and more structurally sprawling records – but to honest, we don't really hear that – the drums are louder in the mix, the rhythms sink in deeply, Sam Prekop's vocals are more outwardly passionate – and to us, the songs are as memorable here as on any of their records. This album was the official indie pop soundtrack of '94 for some us, but it sounds great to this day! Tracks include "The Biz", Leeora", The Kiss", "Station In The Valley", "Darkest Night", "Sending", "Escort", "An Assassin", "The Transaction", and "For Minor Sky", perhaps their single best song ever.

New TortoiseMillions Now Living Will Never Die ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Their 3rd LP, and the one that broke them out of the box. Went gold on it's first week of release in the UK or something like that. Includes "Djed", "Taut & Tame", and "Glass Museum". The same spacey drum/bass/vibes/etc grooves as the first, but with a force so strong it spawned a whole generation of rock journalists. CD
