Sorry BambaSorry Bamba Vol 1 – 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1970s. New Copy 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 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".

Catherine IrwinLittle Heater ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2012. Used .... $6.99
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.

SchlammpeitzigerCollected Simplesongs Of My Temporary Past ... CD
Sonig/Thrill Jockey, Mid 90s-Early 2000s. Used .... $4.99
Some more groovy German electronica from Sonig and Thrill Jockey by Schlammpeitziger, aka Jo Zimmermann. Simplesongs brings together work from five different lps dating back to 1994, with some tracks mixed by Jan St. Werner of Mouse On Mars. Tracks include "Keine Sitar", "Elektronischer Country", "Quietschquarklaute", and "Mango Und Papaja Auf Tobago". Highly recommended to fans of Mouse On Mars. CD

Sea & CakeRunner (plus download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2012. New Copy .... $14.99 16.99
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

D Charles Speer & The HelixLeaving The Commonwealth ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2011. Used Gatefold .... $7.99
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

Sidi ToureAlafia ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2013. New Copy .... $13.99 16.99
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". CD

Sea & CakeFawn (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1997. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
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 OvalSystemisch (2013 Record Store Day Release – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... Temporarily 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

New Sea & CakeBiz (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1995. New Copy (reissue).... 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. LP, Vinyl record album

Thrill Jockey, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... Temporarily 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

Tortoise's first single, and about the only thing you will find by them with vocals.

New TortoiseTortoise ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1993. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Their first one, now a classic in the once burgeoning "post rock" genre (much as we hate using that term) – and it's hands down one of best and most influential albums to come out of Chicago in the early 90s! Spare, rhythmic blend of moody grooves laid down by 2 basses, 2 drummers, and a host of other instruments. This is the one that still featured Bundy "K for Killer" Brown, and overall, it feels more like the work of a core band than some of the densely-atmospheric and thickly-layered Tortoise records to come. Includes "Magnet Pulls Through", "Night Air", "Ry Cooder". "Tin Cans & Twine", "Flyrod", "On Noble", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New TortoiseBeacons Of Ancestorship (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2009. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A nice, diverse display of avant instrumental soundscapes from Tortoise – who sound as unpredictable and vital as they have in years on Beacons Of Ancesorship! All the descriptions of how groundbreaking Tortoise was in the earlier years, and forward looking they've remained throughout their career is all fine and good (and true) – but in the decade and a half of accolades, it isn't often discussed how flat out fun the group is at its best – and that's what we love about this record. Here they blend dynamics built from Krautrock and elastic proggy influences, electronic experimentalism, dubby bass, hypnotic soundtracky vibes, and even a little bit of raw, rugged punk into an overall approach that's Tortoise through and through. Their best since Standards, to say the least, and up there with their best work. Titles include "High Class Slim Came Floatin In", "Prepare Your Coffin", "Northern Something", "Gigantes", "Penumbra", "Yinxianghechechengqi", "The Fall Of The Seven Diamonds Plus One", "Minors", Monument Six Thousand One Hundred", "De Chelly" and "Charteroak Foundation".

Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Oval's masterpiece! 94 Diskont is the culmination of fascinating period for Oval – then the trio of Markus Popp, Sebastian Oschatz and Frank Metzger – moving hypnotic electronic experimentalism into a realm that defies easy categorization. LP1 is opens with the long form, completely engrossing "Do While" – which runs the better part of a half hour and it's a engrossing the entire way. Other titles include "Store Check", "Line Extension", "Cross Selling", "Commerce Server' and "Shop In Store". LP2 is a 12-inch EP of "Do While" remixes by Jim O'Rourke, Scanner, Mouse On Mars and Chritan Vogel. LP, Vinyl record album

Exploding Star Orchestra (Rob Mazurek)We Are All From Somewhere Else (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Shortwave, 2007. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold .... $29.99
An amazing blend of astral jazz and atmospheric orchestral soundscapes – composed and directed by coronetist Rob Mazurek! Exploding Star Orchestra is an apt name, but it's more of a bright and glorious explosion than a calamitous one – a sweeping couple of soundtracky suites that's the culmination of a couple years of work by Mazurek and a major contribution from Nicole Mitchell on flute – plus Jeb Bishop on trombone, Corey Wilkes on flugelhorn, Jeff Parker on guitar, John McEntire on marimba and tubular bells, John Herndon on drums, Jim Baker on piano & ARP, Jazon Adasiewicz on vibes, Matthew Lux on bass, Mike Reed on drums, percussion & saw, and others. It's part informed improvisation, part boundary free composition, and pretty wonderful all the way through! We expected something special, but this one goes above and beyond. Following the Frequency project by about 6 months, this is the second near classic avant garde jazz album on Thrill Jockey in a relative short stretch! 2 multi-part titles: The 70s style soul jazz groover "Sting Ray And The Beginning Of Time" (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 – Psycho-Tropic Electric Eel Drum and Part 4), "Cosmic Tomes For Sleep Walking Lovers" (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 – Fifteen Wais Towards A Finite Universe, and Part 5) – and the mellow, piano led centerpiece "Black Sun". LP, Vinyl record album
