Sea & CakeGlass ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $2.99
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

Nobukazu TakemuraSign EP ... 12-inch
Thrill Jockey, 2000. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $6.99
Nobukazu Takemura is getting sweet again, woking in his new minimalist vein – but most of the tracks have a beat to them, and the overall sound is a lot prettier than some of his other recent records. The 4 track ep kicks off with "Sign", which is done later on the record in a cool little acapella version that sounds like one of those old Speak N Spell toys! Side two features a cool extended work called "Souvenir In Chicago" – which features guest playing by Bundy K Brown, John McIntire, and Doug McCombs. The track's got a wonderful mellow minimal quality – almost like the work of LaMont Young, but with more of a soul, thanks to some lovely processing by Takemura! 12-inch, Vinyl record

TortoiseLazarus Taxon (3CDs & DVD) ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1990s/2000s. Used 3CD&DVD ... $11.99
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.

✨✧ Chicago Underground TrioSlon ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another salvo from Mazurek and crew, and they come out swinging on this one. Recorded immediately after their return from a European tour and in response to the US invasion of Iraq that commenced during that tour, the music was on this disc was conceived of as a representation of the group's live sets during that tour, but with some added studio polish and finesse, and a bit of electronics too! 9 tracks bristling with raw energy: "Protest", "Slon", "Zagreb", "Sevens", "CampbellTtown", "Kite", "Palermo", "Shoe Lace" and "Pear".

✨✧ 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".
