CyclistBones In Motion ... LP
Stones Throw/Leaving, 2013. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Cyclist rides in with Bones In Motion – a joint release by Stones Throw and Leaving Records – an icy cool mix of early electro and housey influences with grittier, more experimental touches! The hypnotic approach and 80s era synth atmosphere bring Tour De France era Kraftwerk to mind – which sure makes the name Cyclist an apt one – and whether the name is a Kraftwerk nod or not, there's a lot more going on here! It's ultimately quite unique and all Cyclist's own. There's a hazy digital fog hanging over these instrumentals that give it a far fuzzier vibe than most 80s electronics-inspired sounds of the post millenium years – plus a thoroughly modern take on avant sampler dynamics. Distorted as they might be, there's usually a compelling, danceable beat underneath, too! Titles include "Feel Beauty", "Mangel", "Bones In Motion", "Sheen", "Makeshift", "Stove", "The March", "Visions", "Fleet Meeting", Black Train", "Another Exploitation", " (New Grooves, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

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

JontiTwirligig ... LP
Stones Throw, 2011. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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.

Mild High ClubSkiptracing (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
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

✨✧ VariousMinimal Wave Tapes Vol 1 ... LP
Minimal Wave/Stones Throw, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 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.

✨✧ 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 ... Out Of Stock
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!
