✨✧ Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeFrom The River To The Ocean ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $8.99
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".

Extra GoldenOk-Oyot System ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2006. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A partnership between US indie guitarists Ian Egelson and Alex Minoff of Golden – with Onyango Wuod Omari and the late Otieno Jagwasi of Nairobi based benga band Orchestra Extra Solar Africa – for an lightly funky, deeply melodic blend of hypnotic tunes! It's a true partnership – jumping back and forth between what each side brings of their own sounds – with the distinctions blending surprisingly well! Titles include "Ilando Gima Onge", "It's Not Easy", "OK-Oyot System", "Osama Rach", "Tussin And Fightin'" and "Nyajondere. LP, Vinyl record album

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

Sea & CakeCar Alarm (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2008. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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 Chicago bands! 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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition colored vinyl – with download.)

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

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

Sidi ToureToubalbero ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2018. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A more joyous, upbeat side of Mali blues singer and guitarist Sidi Toure – and maybe his best yet for Thrill Jockey! Backed by a tight group featuring Boubou Diallo on backing vocals, Djadke Traore on guitar, Ousmane Dagnon on n'goni, Baba Traore on bass and Mamadou Kone on drums, Sidi soars out front with his trademark spindly electric guitar and soaring vocals on songs that are as lively as any we've heard. Part of that might be due to this being his most electric guitar based album we've heard, but the songs themselves have a bigger, loftier sound. Includes "Hendjero", "Moulaye", "BK", "Djirbi Mardkie", "Toubalbero", "Tchirey", "Handaraizo", "Heyyeya", "Sitiali Boubou", "Kaoula" and "Tarzidet". CD

✨✧ Sea & CakeNassau ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1995. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Sea & CakeRunner (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2012. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Runner arrived as the first new album from avant pop veterans Sea & Cake in a few years – and it's among their most outright irresistible efforts in around about a decade! We've loved this band from day one – and earlier than that even, if you want to count each member's time in preceding groups – so we're not about to start taking them for granted. It's tried-and-true Sea & Cake on one level here – breezy melodies, warm vocals and a laidback charm – plus their ever unique mix of live instrumentation and electronics. That said, the songs stand out more strongly on The Runner than on some of their recent work. They're as vital as ever! Includes "On And On", "Harps", "A Mere", "The Invitations", "Skyscraper", "Harbor Bridges", "New Patterns", "Neighbors And Township", "Pacific" and "The Runner". LP, Vinyl record album
