Isotope 217Unstable Molecule (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.99
Timeless avant grooves from Isotope 217! We can remember when these guys were just a loose collective of musicians, playing Miles-influenced spacey jazz jams in unadvertised Monday night gigs at Chicago's legendary Rainbo Room. On record they've metamorphosized into one of the most distinctive groups in the late 90s Chi scene –inflecting experimental rock with a more jazz-oriented sensibility. Titles include "Kryptonite Smokes The Red Line", "Prince Naymor", "Audio Boxing", "Beneath The Undertow", and "La Jetee". LP, Vinyl record album

Jeff ParkerRelatives ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2005. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Great early post-millennium outing from Tortoise's Jeff Parker! This set for Thrill Jockey sounds great with the addition of Sam Barsheshet to the group on Rhodes and Wurlitzer. Drummer/percussionist Chad Taylor and bassist/multi-instrumentalist Chris Lopes fill out the group. Parker's style is clean, generous and collaborative, leaving plenty of casual space within the tunes for the players and room on the tracklist for the other players' compositions. The centerpiece of the album is a great version of Marvin Gaye's "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You", which the group turns into more of an after hours sweet spot than a mournful soul lament. Nice, nice work! Other tracks include "Istanbul", "Mannerisms", "Sea Change", "Beanstalk", "Toyboat" and "Rang (For Michael Zerang)". CD

A fine quartet outing from Tortoise's Jeff Parker – a great guitarist who stays busy without ever wearing out his welcome, and in fact leaves us wishing for more straighter jazz-Great early post-millennium outing from Tortoise's Jeff Parker!

Sea & CakeCar Alarm ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2008. Used ... $5.99
The Sea & Cake's most instantly addictive album in years – one that blends the more anthemic style of their recent work with some bubbling synthy grooves! The group is nothing if not consistent, and they don't radically rework the set structure – with Sam Prekop's effervescent, breathy vocals over arrangements that sometimes lean on the uptempo rockishness that accented the previous LP, along with more glossy electronic impulses. Another essential album from one of our favorite bands of the past decade +! Titles include "Aerial", "A Fuller Moon", "On A Letter", "Car Alarm", "Weekend", "New Schools", "Window Sills", "Down In The City", "Pages", "The Staircase", "Mirrors" and more. CD

Sea & CakeEverybody (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2007. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 18.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Sea & CakeMoonlight Butterfly (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2011. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
Freethinking, breezy avant pop greats The Sea & Cake's Moonlight Butterfly – an album that marks nearly 20 years in the band's history – and they're as uniquely appealing in the post-millennium as they were in the early 90s! The group never disappoints, but this one is particularly strong. It's got 6 longish tunes that slyly metamorphose as they float along, songs that do carry the unique Sea & Cake sound as we've known and loved all those time, but subtly changing textures throughout. Titles include "Covers", "Lyric", "The Moonlight Butterfly", "Up On The North Shore", "Inn Keeping" and "Monday". LP, Vinyl record album

Sea & CakeNassau (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $19.99 20.99
One of the best by The Sea & Cake – working in some more diverse elements than some of their later work – but even at this earlyish point, they've got a distinctive style all their own! It kicks off with the rawish, angular rocker "Nature Boy", but as the album goes along, in brings in the more signature Sea & Cake style of moody vocal melodies, avant, kinda jazzy guitar and rhythmic influences, subtle electronics and more leftfield pop songcraft. Tracks include "Parasol", "A Man Who Never Sees A Pretty Girl That He Doesn't Love Her A Little", "The World Is Against You", "Soft And Sleep", "Alone, For A Moment", "I Will Hold The Tea Bag" and more.

TortoiseTortoise (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
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! A 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 more atmospheric and thickly-layered Tortoise records to come. Includes "Magnet Pulls Through", "Night Air", "Ry Cooder". "Tin Cans & Twine", "Flyrod", "On Noble", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BrokebackIllinois River Valley Blues ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the warmest, best instrumental music yet from Doug McCombs's Brokeback – maybe a bit less abstract than most earlier Brokeback efforts – but just as alluring, even while working with more a immediately engaging sound. McCombs is on guitars here with multi-instrumentalist James Elkington, Pete Croke on bass and Arief Sless-Kitain on drums & percussion, and occasional atmospheric vocals by Amalea Tshild. Illinois River Valley Blues manages to bring in more identifiable jazz, rock and soundtrack-y influences, while still wholly distinctive – and the way McCombs is inspired by lesser traveled points on the map of his (and our own) home state has always been a fascinating aspect of his work in Brokeback – never more so than on this one. Includes "Ride Ahead And Light The Way For Me", "Cairo Levee", "The Canyons Of Illinois", "Andalusia, IL"., "Spanish Venus", "Ursula", "The Stroller's Memorial", "Night Falls On Chillicothe" and more.

✨✧ TortoiseCatastrophist Tour Book (CD & book) ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album in years from Tortoise – plus a bonus download of rare live recordings and great little photo journal of the band on tour – shot by Andrew Paynter! The Catastrophist album finds the Chi post rock heroes stretching out creatively in fascinating ways, some subtle and others obvious – and all of it compelling! Partly inspired by work Tortoise was commissioned to produce by the City Of Chicago, material that could be used in collaboration with the city's great jazz and improvistional musical community, these aural building blocks were pulled back into Tortoise-ville on the record, where the band could do their distinctive thing. Drums and percussion, creative guitar and bass grooves, and divergent keyboard textures make up the connective tissue – but it's a pretty diverse sound overall! Two of the more fascinating stylistic departures have vocals – a bass-y, synth-steeped cover of the early 70s David Essex hit "Rock On", and the moody, melodic "Yonder Blue" with Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo. Other titles include"The Catastrophist', "Ox Duke","Gopher Island", "Shake Hands With Danger", "The Clearing Fills", "Gesceap", "Tesseract", "Hot Coffee" and "At Odds With Logic". CD
