HeliocentricsQuatermass Sessions – From The Deep ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Not the original Quatermass EP from The Heliocentrics – but material that takes off in an even fuller, heavier direction – and which may well be the funkiest sounds we've heard from these guys so far! The music is stunning right from the very first heavy bassline and sharp drum crackle – more focused, more full-on, and more funky than before – with this mindblowing mix of super-tight rhythms and nicely trippy work on keyboards and guitar – all freaky and fuzzy, but always with a sense of purpose, too – and never just crazy for the sake of crazy! These guys really hit a new high with this set – simply wonderful, and at a level that has us falling in love with them all over again. Titles include "The Pit", "Gas Bottle", "Discovery", "Phenomenon Of Man", "Telekinesis", "Night & Day", "Looking Back", "Mass Psychosis", and "The Final Conclusion". (Deep Funk, Rock) CD

✨✧ Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing electric grooves from synth innovator Bruce Haack – whose pioneering use of analog synths and vocoder vocals in the service of great, if far out songcraft was pretty much unrivaled in the 70s and into the early 80s – the period in which this excellent compilation on Stones Throw highlights! Haack's earlier successes were children's music in the 60s, and one of the coolest aspects of his 70s recordings was how that somewhat bright-eyed and innocent sing-song-y approached moved into more surrealist, weirder realms on albums like Electric Lucifer, that album's lesser known, still quite brilliant sequel, and albums like Haackula and Bite. Choice cuts from those albums as well as rare singles are rounded up for Stones Throw's impeccably curated overview. The electric voice and synth errata brings an otherworldly vibe to catchy songs – and Haack's use of the vocoder was followed by so many others who would become household names, from Kraftwerk to Pink Floyd. Amazing stuff! 16 tracks in all: "Electric To Me Turn", "Incantation", "Rain Of Earth", "Ancient Mariner", "Man Kind", "Rita", "Lie Back", "Snow Job"m "The King", "Party Machine" and more.

✨✧ HeliocentricsQuatermass Sessions EP (with download) ... LP
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the deepest, darkest sounds we've ever heard from The Heliocentrics – and that's saying a lot, given the freak and fuzz of these guys' other work! The music has an especially echoey feel – one that comes through in the use of analogue electronics that makes some passages feel more like a horror soundtrack – and even in the funkier bits that we know more from the group – their cool blend of soul-based instrumentation and psych-based production styles! These are the core cuts that were heard on the Gaslamp Killer EP "Helio X GLK" – but they're presented here in their original form, with tracks that include "Something Bad A Coming", "Tomorrow Today", "Primitivos", "Noises & Conversations", and "Thunder & Lightning".

✨✧ Mild High ClubSkiptracing (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Easygoing, breezy avant pop from Mild High Club – nicely balancing oddball vocals atmosphere with charming and accessible grooves –and pairing 70s AOR and the softest of soft rock influences with post-millennium, indie pastiche vibe. A hazy mood and atmoshperic holds true throughout, but beyond that, the sounds from track-to-track are pretty unpredictable, with lots of different bits of instrumentation – from synths and other electric soundscapes to acoustic strings. Definitely lives up to the promise of their debut, and another step into unpredictable areas for Stones Throw. Includes the title track, "Homeage", "Cary Me Back", "Head Out", "Chasing My Tail", "Ceiling Zero", "Kocopelli" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Chocolate WatchbandMelts In Your Brain Not On Your Wrist – The Complete Recordings 1965 to 1967 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 22.99
Throw away all of your other 60s psychedelic albums – because with this massive 2CD set, you'll hardly need them! The Chocolate Watchband were one of the key groups of the California scene of the 60s – a hard-rocking outfit that emerged in the garagey psyche years, and worked in the same south bay scene as Count Five and Syndicate Of Sound. Yet unlike either of those bands, Chocolate Watchband never scored as big on the charts – and also had a harder, rougher, edgier sound that showed what a young group could really do when given the space. There's a Stones-like sense of power here – especially on the rougher, blusier numbers – but also a Love-like sense of tightness and desire to hone the power of the guitar into a key force for the youth of the 60s. And although the group's discography has been slightly mysterious for years, this 2CD set more than corrects any problems – by offering up the full scope of the group's work – including singles on the Uptown and Hanna Barbera labels, material from their Tower LPs, later unissued cuts – and full notes on everything, including those studio sessions that didn't always feature all the members of the group. 43 tracks in all – with amazing notes, photos, and details on the music!

✨✧ Barbara KeithBarbara Keith (Warner) ... LP
Warner, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful album from the lovely Barbara Keith – a singer who's a bit folksy at points, but also has all the cool Cali touches you'd expect from the canyon scene at the time – that special blend of elements that can make an early 70s album like this such a unique treasure! Barbara sings lead vocals, and provides acoustic guitar – and backing shifts from track to track, and features great contributions from folks like Spooner Oldham on Fender Rhodes and Danny Kootchmar and Lowell George on guitars! With company like that, you'll get a good idea of the style – a mode that's faithful to roots, but really pushes things forward – and with an approach that's maybe more subtle than some of Barbara's male contemporaries, but in a nice way. Titles include "Detroit Or Buffalo", "Shining All Along", "The Road I Took To You", "The Bramble & The Rose", "Rolling Water", and "A Stones Throw Away". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousForge Your Own Chains – Heavy Psychedelic Ballads and Dirges 1968 to 1974 ... CD
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Style CouncilInternationalists ... LP
Geffen, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
A later effort from Weller and Talbot, and definitely a step further along on the slick production scale, but as with all Style Council efforts, there's a few gems contained here too! The pair continue with their sophisticated modern songwriting, with soulful and jazzy touches tempering their pop sensibilities. Includes "All Gone Away", "Come To Milton Keynes", "Internationalists", "A Stones Throw Away", "A Man Of Great Promise", "Down In The Seine", "The Lodger's", "Shout To The Top" and "Walls Come Tumbling Down".

✨✧ VariousBest Of Pied Piper Days Vol 2 ... CD
Sony (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe an even cooler set than the first volume in the Pied Piper series – like that one, a wonderful batch of American sunshine pop-styled numbers from the late 60s and early 70s, brought together in tribute to the famous Pied Piper record store in Tokyo – but filled even more obscure, unusual tunes overall – in a way that has us hoping there will be lots more volumes to come! The music here is a bit hard to peg – kind of post-folk, pre-singer/songwriter – sometimes with pop production, but never overwhelmingly so – representing a move towards more sophisticated mainstream modes at the end of the 60s. CD features 24 tracks in all – and titles include "In The Name Of Love" by Estelle Levitt, "With You Girl" by The Arbors, "I'll Close My Eyes" by Gary Williams, "Something Big" by Mark Lindsay, "Never Throw Your Dreams Away" by Joanie Sommers, "Gotta Have Love" by Paul Varisco & The Milestones, "Wild World" by Bobby Scott, "Come On & Be My Love" by Kenny & Yvonne, "So Glad" by Alzo, "It's Alright" by Robey Falk & Bod, "Snow Queen" by The Association, "The Greatest Love" by Billy Joe Royal, "Nobody At All" by The Groop, and "Sunrise Highway" by Peter Anders.
