✨✧ Hal RubensteinGentry Man – A Guide For The Civilized Male – The Best Of Gentry Magazine 1951 to 1957 ... Book
HarperCollins, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great guide to male culture, circa 1955 – served up in images and articles from Gentry – which was a postwar magazine in the realm of GQ and Esquire! The book is beautifully done, with full page reproductions of the best features from the magazine's 22 issues – all done with a great sense of design, cool typography, and loads and loads of very cool images! Unlike other books on men's magazines, which usually tell the story and show pictures, but never offer up the whole thing – this volume really gets at the heart of Gentry, with over 250 pages that are a lot more striking and fun to read than some fragile, yellowing old issues. Loads of great articles on cars and men's fashion – plus more on eating, drinking, and even gambling! Book

TortoiseBeacons Of Ancestorship (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2009. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A nice, diverse display of avant instrumental soundscapes from Tortoise – who sound as unpredictable and vital as ever! 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".
