✨✧ Savath & SavalasLa Llama ... CD
Stones Throw, 2009. Used ... $1.99
The best work yet from Guillermo Scott Herren's most organic venue in his ever expanding world of aural mood mastery – the early 70s South American folk psychedelia inspired trio Savath & Savalas – the group's first album for Stones Throw! Eva Puyuelo Muns brings hushed, lovely vocals, sometimes harmonizing with male voices, and Herren's textured atmosphere blends post Tropicalia Brazilian psych folk influences with ambient experimentalism incredibly well! The group pinpoints the early 70s sounds that were happening in Brazil, specifically in Recife, Brazil, but we're hearing some pretty spacey stuff from the electronic experimentalist realms in the sound, too (up to and including Guillermo's work as Prefuse 73) – and it's pretty amazing that Herren, Muns and Roberto Carlos Lange are crafting grooves in a coherent way with such disparate influences. Titles include "La Llama", "Carajuillo", "Una Cura", "La Loba", "Barceloneta", Postlude", "No Despierta", "Adeu" and more. CD

✨✧ AnikaAnika ... CD
Invada/Stones Throw, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sparse, no wave-inspired, dubby avant grooves from Anika – produced and accompanied by Geoff Barrow of Portishead & Beak> – cool stuff that lives up to the post disco/post punk inspirations! The sound is icey cool, reverb heavy bass & drum backed vocals by Anika, in a steely spoken style – with covers of Dylan, Yoko Ono and others, plus some blunt originals. If not for some topical soundbites, this could easily pass for a lost album on 99 Records or Stiff Records – along with some of more timeless and urgent efforts of the era. Includes "Terry", "Yang Yang", "End Of The World", "Masters Of War", "Officer Officer", "Sadness", "Sadness Hides The Sun", "No One's There", "I Go To Sleep" and "Masters Of War (Dub)". CD
(NOTE: rear tray card is missing, but everything else is fine. Includes obi.)

✨✧ VariousMinimal Wave Tapes Vol 1 ... CD
Minimal Wave/Stones Throw, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Stone HarbourEmerges ... CD
Stone Harbour/Lion, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest, most tripped-out albums we've ever heard from the American underground of the 70s – a spare and psychedelic album, and one put together with an echoey, garage-like sort of sound! Stone Harbour are hardly a group, and really just more of a duo – vocalist Dave McCarty, who also plays drums and percussion, and guitarist Ric Ballas, who also plays organ, piano, synth, and bass on the record! The pair recorded this one album in early 1974 in Youngstown, Ohio – hardly a hotbed of cultural activity, which is why the record remained unnoticed for so many years. Yet, despite its obscurity, it's a heck of a compelling little set – a rough-edged set that blows away most other indie work from the time – almost more psychedelic than some of the better-remembered work of the type in the late 60s, and almost punkish in its DIY approach to its sound – although the record's not punk at all. Titles include "You'll Be A Star", "Thanitos", "Stones Throw", "Ride", "Working For The Queen", and "Grains Of Sand". CD also features 4 bonus tracks – "Taurus", "Wonderland", "Witch To You", and "Battle Axe" CD
