Chicago Underground QuartetChicago Underground Quartet ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2001. Used ... $5.99
Genius work from the Chicago Underground ensemble – expanded here from the duo of Rob Mazurek and Chad Taylor, to include guitarist Jeff Parker and bassist Noel Kuppersmith. Mazurek plays cornet and just a hint of electronics, and combined with the fractured guitar work of Parker, the modalling percussion and vibes of Taylor, and the warmly soulful bass of Kuppersmith, the blend of instrumentation has all the startling presence of a lost early 60s modern session that might have been recorded for a label like New Jazz or Savoy. Tracks include "Tunnel Chrome", "Four In The Evening", "Total Recovery", "Nostalgia", "Sink, Charge, Fixture", and "Three In The Morning". CD

✨✧ Sea & CakeGlass ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $4.99
The Sea and Cake have one of the most distinctive sounds in the rock spectrum these days, indie or otherwise – and this great little EP with new cuts and remixes featuring Stereolab, Broadcast, and Carl Craig shake things up very, very nicely! If for some reason you don't know these guys, they generally have a pretty laidback, in-the-groove style honed from their years of working together, one that draws traces from obscure late 60s and 70s pop, 90s post rock and very subtle strains of bossa (more in mood than actual sound) for their own wholly unique approach. They're truly great at it – but the stylistic makeover they get here takes their already unique feel to a very sweet plateau – lots of groovy, spacey, soulful electronic touches wash through the 37 minutes of music, with Sam Prekop's breathy, confident vocals (which have gotten better and better over the years) blowing over the atmospheric tracks like a warm breeze. Very nice stuff – we'd love to see the group carry on in this vein on future LPs! Includes "To The Author (versions 1 & 2)", "Traditional Wax Coin", "An Echo In", "Tea And Cake (Stereolab mix)", "Interiors (Broadcast mix)" and "Hotel Tell (C's mix)". The enhanced CD also has animation by former Liquid Liquid guitarist Richard McGuire. CD

TortoiseLazarus Taxon (3CDs & DVD) ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1990s/2000s. Used 3CD&DVD ... $22.99
A massive collection of Tortoise rarities – including work from non-US releases, tour-only EP material, compilation tracks and more – plus the long out-of-print, heavily sought after Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters remix album – all at a great price! You really couldn't ask for a better collection of errata from the celebrated group. It features some of the best work the collective and individual members (Jeff Parker ('97-present), John Herndon, John McEntire, Doug McCombs, Dan Bitney, David Pajo ('95-'97) and Bundy Brown ('91-'94)) have ever done! Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters – featuring adventurous re-imaginings by such a diverse roster as Casey Rice, Steve Albini, Brad Wood, Jim O'Rourke and Mike Watt – is possibly the face value boon of the collection given it's known "legendary lost" status, but pretty much everything here is just as tough to find, if not literally impossible! The set contains 3CDs and a DVD, which features most of Tortoise's music videos and extensive rare live performance footage. Frankly, we'd have paid $20 just for a CD single with "Gamera", and that's just the kick off track on disc 1! Other tracks on disc 1 include "Blackbyrd", "Sex For Elizabeth", "To Day Retrieval", "Whitewater", "Autumn Sweater", "A Grape Dope", "Blue Station" and more. Disc 2 includes "Madison Area", "TNT (Nobukazu Takemura remix)", "Why We Fight", "CTA", "Adverse", Cliff Dweller Society" and more. Disc 3 (Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters) includes the tracks "Alcohall", "Your New Rod", "Cobwebbed", "The Match Incident", "Tin Cans", "Not Quite East Of The Ryan", "Cornpone Brunch" and more. DVD includes the videos for "Salt The Skies", "Dear Grandma And Grandpa", "Seneca", and more, plus live footage from Toronto in '96, the Deutches Jazz Festival in '99, Chic-A-Go-Go in '05 and the Burn To Shine project in '04.

TortoiseTortoise ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1993. Used ... $3.99
Their first one, now a classic in the once burgeoning "post rock" genre (much as we hate using that term) – and it's hands down one of best and most influential albums to come out of Chicago in the early 90s! Spare, rhythmic blend of moody grooves laid down by 2 basses, 2 drummers, and a host of other instruments. This is the one that still featured Bundy "K for Killer" Brown, and overall, it feels more like the work of a core band than some of the densely-atmospheric and thickly-layered Tortoise records to come. Includes "Magnet Pulls Through", "Night Air", "Ry Cooder". "Tin Cans & Twine", "Flyrod", "On Noble", and more. CD
(Out of print. Beautiful printed digipack edition!)

✨✧ Sam PrekopSam Prekop ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little record from this longtime stalwart of the Chicago scene. Sam started out in Shrimpboat, gained great fame in Sea & Cake, and here delivers his most wonderful performance to date – a beautiful set of jazzy pop tracks, with backing by Josh Abrams, Archer Prewitt, Jim O'Rourke, and the great drummer Chad Taylor. The tracks bristle with a lovely sense of energy, and they have a sophistication that's wonderful – matched with a lyricism that keeps them always sounding fresh. Sam's turned into a wonderful vocalist, too – and we're betting you won't be able to take this one off the turntable once you get started. Titles include "The Shadow", "Don't Bother", "The Company", and "Faces & People". CD

✨✧ Robert MazurekAmorphic Winged ... CD
Walking Road, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The leader of the "Chicago Underground" groups (duo/trio/quartet/orchestra. . .) steps out on a solo effort, that's not exactly a solo project, as he brings in help from a number of other stalwarts of the Thrill Jockey scene. Though his rich, expressive cornet playing is featured throughout, these compositions focus on analogue synth lines and laptop generated electronics, with overlapping figures and layers of pure sound. 7 lengthy compositions, including "Amorphic Winged", "The Shaping Light", "Strange Logics" & "Time Coded Single".

✨✧ LamplightersLoving, Rocking, Thrilling – The Complete Federal Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Excellent vocal group work by The Lamplighters – a less-remembered 50s outfit whose members later went onto greater fame in The Sharps and The Rivingtons! Most of the tracks on the set feature lead vocals by the amazing Thurston Harris – himself an important figure in R&B later in the decade – and all tracks on the set are from the group's King/Federal recordings, and are done at a level that easily match any other King vocal group recordings at the time! As with recordings by labelmates The Swallows, the backings on these sides is often very spare – in a way that lets the vocals carry most of the tunes, in a mode that's perfect if you really dig work with a strong focus on raw harmonies. The set features 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Rock & Thrill", "Be Bop Wino", "Crazy Times", "Give Me", "Turn Me Loose", "Yum Yum", "Bo Peep", "Roll On", "I Can't Stand It", "Ride Jockey Ride", "Hug A Little Kiss A Little", "Part Of Me", "I Used To Cry Mercy Mercy", and "Salty Dog".
