Air10,000 Hz Legend (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 34.98
A great early 00s effort from Air – bravely moving towards a deeper, trippier sound! For 10,000 Hz Legend, they wisely don't try to replicate the comparably effervescent vibe of their late 90s classic Moon Safari. On some level, they're still working with some of moodier textures of their work on the Virgin Suicides soundtrack, particularly in the warm, but slightly eerie melodies, but there's a much more expansive vibe here. They're still recognizable as sensual, electronics embracing avant pop composers of Moon Safari, but there's a lot more deftly layered influences here, from prog, to psych, to disco – and it's a great beginning-to-end listen. Includes "Electronic Performers", "How Does It Make You Feel", "Radio #1", "The Vagabond", "Radian", "Sex Born Poison", "People In The City", "Don't Be Light", "Caramel Prisoner" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

AirTalkie Walkie (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Atmospheric electronic pop from Air – one that really steps up the spacier avant pop touches, after some of more ethereal, almost symphonic touches on both their proper albums and soundtrack work in the preceding few years. Lots of trippy electronic touches on this one, but still with the delicate vocals and layered bits of guitar and other strings, for a nice blend of sounds. Solid work from the always adventurous duo. Includes "Venus", "Cherry Blossom Girl", "Run", "Universal Traveler", "Mike Mills", "Surfing On A Rocker", "Another Day", "Alpha Beta Gaga", "Biological" and "Alone In Kyoto". LP, Vinyl record album

AirVirgin Suicides (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2000. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A great album from French combo Air – ingeniously working on dual fronts – as both the moody original score to Sofia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, and as an amazing stand alone listening experience! While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of their usual atmospherics are dusted off with fairly jazzy instrumentation and post-Bacharach arrangements. Gordon Tracks sings guest vocals on "Playground Love" and the whole thing's got a beautiful airy 60s pop style to it – tracks include "Clouds Up", "Bathroom Girl", "Cemetary Party", "Dirty Trip", "Highschool Lover (Theme From The Virgin Suicides)", "Afternoon Sister", "Ghost Song", and "Dead Bodies".

K-OSB-Boy Stance (album, inst, acapella) ... 12-inch
Astralwerks, 2004. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A great single from K-OS – one that's a reverent hip hop time capsule and a forward looking groover at the same time. Primarily, this is a throwback B-Boy anthem – centered around the time honored "Funky Drummer" sample – with live accompaniment on guitar and keys. K-OS kicks some effortless fast flowing lyrics that are skillful enough to take notice, but more or less in service of the groove. Great stuff from one of the more under appreciated cats – makes you wonder why we have to look to a guy from Toronto to make better use of hip hop style with live instrumentation than most of the crews in the US (except for the Roots, of course). 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bettye SwannBettye Swann ... CD
EMI/Honest Jons/Astralwerks, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of late 60s southern soul from the great Bettye Swann – 22 tunes cut for Capitol between 1968 and 1970 after she jumped from the indie Money Records! Sadly, the move didn't turn Bettye into the major star Capitol no doubt expected to arise – and these fantastic tracks were largely unappreciated at the time. This release marks the very first worthy issue of most of this material, thanks to Honest Jon's – who did a similarly wonderful job rescuing some of the best material ever recorded by Bettye's contemporary Candi Staton! There's an achingly great southern soul feel to these tunes, which range from fragile soul ballads with sweet harmonies to poundingly righteous stompers. The feel is just loose enough, with roomy arrangements that leave plenty of space for Bettye's sweet vocals, but still with the ability to tighten up and pound at the crack of a whip! Masterful lost soul – and a joy to experience with a reverent reissue! Tracks include "Don't You Ever Get Tired (Of Hurting Me?)", "I'm Lonely For You", "Don't Touch Me", "Little Things Mean A Lot", "No Faith No Love", "Ain't That Peculiar", "Tell It Like It Is", "Today I Started Loving You Again" and lots more!
