Extra GoldenHera Ma Nono ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $1.99
A sublime second album on Thrill Jockey from Extra Golden – a more cohesive blend Kenyan benga and reverent American groove rock! The globally stretched partnership of the group continues on in honor of the deceased co-founding guitarist/singer/composer Otieno Jagwasi for this one. Opiyo Bilongo steps in on guitar and vocals for the set, joining guitarists Ian Egelson and Alex Minoff, drummer/vocalist Onyango Wuod Omari and some guest musicians – this time recording in the US. This time out the benga music takes a more profound lead role in the overall groove, and the soulful rock parts have fewer lead moments – and a subtle, intertwined elemental influence overall. Great stuff! Titles include "Jakolando", "Obama" (dedicated to our senator who helped them get clearance to travel to the US), "I Miss You", "Night Runners", "Street Parade", "Brothers Gone Away", "Love Hijackers" and "Hera Ma Nono".

TortoiseStandards ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey, 2001. Used ... $1.99
This groundbreaking Chicago combo once again moves away from the pack on what might be their best album – leaving behind the host of imitators that sprung up in their wake. Standards still shows a fascination with the spare and revolving rhythms that graced the group's first few releases, but it's also a lot more complex musically – with plenty of added electronics, noisy guitars, keyboards, and some of the most sophisticated production to date – proof that these guys are great, and always growing as artists. Titles include "Seneca", "Eros", "Benway", "Eden 2", "Blackjack", "Speakeasy", and "Six Pack". CD

TortoiseTortoise: Remixed (green cover version) (Japanese pressing – with bonus track) ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey (Japan), 1996/1998. Used ... $13.99
Tour-only CD that brings together 8 of the remixes of stuff off of their Millions Now Living LP. Remixes of tracks like "Djed", "Bubble Economy", and "Galapagos" – by folks like Springheel Jack, Bundy Brown, Jim O'Rourke, and Markus Popp. As you know, some of these were on the earlier 12" singles, but those are getting pretty tough to find, and this CD brings together a number of those tracks in one cool package.

New Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeBack Together Again (plus bonus disc) ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Used 2CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A masterful set from two legends – Fred Anderson on sax, and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion! It's hard to imagine a more fulfilling 70 minutes of work from these two players than you'll find here. Anderson's sinewy, rolling lines meld beautifully with Drake's propulsive pounding. The boys build a great sound here, too – so much so that's you can scarcely believe that it's was all done in a duet setting. Nice, nice stuff! Tracks include "Leap Forward", "Black Woman", "Back Together Again", "Losel Drolma", "A Ray From The One", "Louisiana Strut", "Know Your Advantage" and more. It comes with a great bonus CD ROM disc with a lot of live studio and documentary footage, a couple of interviews and much more! CD

New Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeFrom The River To The Ocean ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A fresh album from one of the stronger partnerships in avant garde jazz – sax titan Fred Anderson and drummer/percussionist Hamid Drake – joined by some of the finest Chicago based players for set of slowbuilding, generously spacious material that might be even better their previous album for Thrill Jockey! Anderson's sax and Drake's drumming are as intuitive to each other as ever, and some bits of the record have a dual bass sound that really pulls us in! Josh Abrams and Harrison Bankhead bring the bass, with a great cello part by Bankhead on one track, and Jeff Parker plays some nice guitar. A masterful record with more of an ensemble approach than its predecessor! 5 long (or longish), languorously gripping tracks: "Planet E", "Strut Time", "For Brother Thompson", "From The River To The Ocean" and "Sakti/Shiva".

New All NaturalSecond Nature ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second full length by Capital D and Tone B Nimble as All Natural! Second Nature is jammed packed with 19 tracks featuring the cream of the Chicago underground and other guests including JUICE, Slug, Lone Catalysts, Mr. Greenweedz and others. The no-nonsense, sturdy beats and production is the most unifying factor here – with Capital D's unwavering devotion to Islam sometimes contrasting sharply with some of the more bragging and boasting of some of the guest MCs. Still, at it's best Second Nature is lyrically uncompromising and has an outlook as fresh as any new hip hop we've heard in a while. Tracks include "Second Nature", "Think Again", "The Next Mile", "Vegetarian", "Ill Advisory", "Stellar", "Uncle Sam", "Here's The Hate On Chicago", "Renaissance", "Godspeed", and "Future Is Now". CD has four extra tracks. CD

New Chicago Underground DuoIn Praise Of Shadows ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another fine effort from the Chicago Underground Duo – multi-instrumentalists Chad Talyor and Rob Mazurek – and like the duo's earlier work on Thrill Jockey, it's a wonderful listen, that traipses through elements of Don Cherry-like jazz experimentation, and percussive, minimalist avant rock! The sound is uncategorizable in the best sense, and the duo has chops that devour most of their contempories. Another great one! Mazurek works on cornet, organ, celest, piano, harpsichord and more, and Taylor is drums, perussion, gongs vibe and more. Tracks include "In Praise Of Shadows", "Falling Awake", "The Glass House", "Cities Without Citadels", "Pangea", "Funeral Of Dreams" and "The Light Between". CD

New Sea & CakeEverybody ... CD CD format
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The warm sound of the Sea & Cake gets a just a touch more guitar based on their lucky 7th album – with a bit more of a kick in the drums and bite to the strings in spots – a subtle but definite change from the one of the most consistent indie pop crews ever! This time out, longtime producer/drummer John McEntire stays behind the drums & other percussion and lets producer Brian Paulson man the booth – which may, or may not be the reason for the slightly punchier vibe, but it works. This is still very much the Sea & Cake we've loved since the get go – there's no mistaking Sam Prekop's vocals – but there's an anthemic turn or two applied to their mannered genius. Some reviewers give them flak for supposedly repeating themselves, but those folks need to listen more closely. Titles include "Up On Crutches", "Too Strong", "Crossing Line", "Coconut", "Exact To Me", "Lightning", "Introducing", "Left On" and "Transparent". CD

New Sea & CakeOui ... LP LP format
Thrill Jockey, 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the warmest record by the Sea & Cake – drawing a lot more from their earlier The Biz and Sam Prekop's solo album than their previous The Fawn, adding strings to a lot of the melodies instead of the electronic sounds. Sunny avant pop that manages to pull off a little bit of soulfulness with their trademark laidback charm. Tracks include "Afternoon Speaker", "All The Photos", "You Beautiful Bastard", "The Colony Room", "The Leaf", "Everyday", "Two Dolphins", "Midtown", "Seemingly", and "I Missed The Glance".
