Marisa AndersonCloud Corner ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2018. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
Completely captivating work from Marisa Anderson – an instrumentalist who could easily match the groundbreaking sound of Takoma Records in the 60s with her work on albums like this! Marisa's a guitarist at heart – and mostly plays electric and acoustic on the record, using the instrument in this spare, open sort of way – far from American roots, but also very American at the same time – informed by all the modern changes on the instrument in the hands of the acoustic underground in recent decades, but delivered with a very down-to-earth approach that's extremely beautiful. Anderson plays a few other instruments over the course of the record – including a bit of Wurlitzer electric piano – bu the guitar dominates, in a wonderful way – on titles that include "Lift", "Sanctuary", "Surfacing", "Cloud Corner", "Sun Song", "Lament", "Slow Ascent", and "Pulse".

✨✧ Exploding Star Orchestra (Rob Mazurek)We Are All From Somewhere Else ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $6.99
An amazing blend of astral jazz and atmospheric orchestral soundscapes – composed and directed by coronetist Rob Mazurek! Exploding Star Orchestra is an apt name, but it's more of a bright and glorious explosion than a calamitous one – a sweeping couple of soundtracky suites that's the culmination of a couple years of work by Mazurek and a major contribution from Nicole Mitchell on flute – plus Jeb Bishop on trombone, Corey Wilkes on flugelhorn, Jeff Parker on guitar, John McEntire on marimba and tubular bells, John Herndon on drums, Jim Baker on piano & ARP, Jazon Adasiewicz on vibes, Matthew Lux on bass, Mike Reed on drums, percussion & saw, and others. It's part informed improvisation, part boundary free composition, and pretty wonderful all the way through! We expected something special, but this one goes above and beyond. Following the Frequency project by about 6 months, this is the second near classic avant garde jazz album on Thrill Jockey in a relative short stretch! 2 multi-part titles: The 70s style soul jazz groover "Sting Ray And The Beginning Of Time" (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 – Psycho-Tropic Electric Eel Drum and Part 4), "Cosmic Tomes For Sleep Walking Lovers" (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 – Fifteen Wais Towards A Finite Universe, and Part 5) – and the mellow, piano led centerpiece "Black Sun".

Fox Millions DuoBiting Through ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2019. Sealed ... $6.99
Avant percussion heroes Greg Fox and Kid Millions team up as the Fox Millions Duo! Biting Through is bigger sounding than a lot of the experimental instrumental or post-post rock out there, with a driving drum sound and thick layers of synth in both the heavier and more frenetic moments, and the more methodically paced, looser moments – even in the sparest passages the atmosphere is thick. Sharp stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Rumback & Ryley WalkerLittle Common Twist ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2019. New Copy ... $19.99 20.99
A wonderful instrumental duo effort from drummer Charles Rumback and guitarist Ryley Walker – the former a vital player in the Chicago jazz and experimental scene, the latter one one time Chicago, now NYC based player who has been as important as anyone taking the folk and blues-steeped avant garde acoustic guitar influences of Jansch, Fahey and others into new realms. Where their previous work together and some more angular edges, this one his a more hypnotic sound overall, with loose folk passages that flow into surprisingly futuristic sounds, with producer John Hughes on synth and electronics. Thrill Jockey continues to be an welcoming home to progressive instrumental music. Includes "Half Joking", "Self Blind Sun", "Idiot Parade", "And You, These Sang", "Menebhi", "Ill-Fitting/No Sickness", "If You're Around And Down" and "Worn And Held". LP, Vinyl record album

TortoiseCatastrophist (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
The first album in years from Tortoise – again stretching out creatively in fascinating ways, some subtle and others obvious – and all of it compelling! The Catastrophist is 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. For The Castastrophist record, these musical building blocks were pulled back into Tortoise-ville, where the band could do their distinctive thing. Compelling 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".

✨✧ David ByrneLead Us Not Into Temptation ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty interesting set of tunes from David Byrne – way different than anything he's recorded for Luaka Bop in the last several years! Lead Us Not To Temptation is essentially the soundtrack to a movie starring Ewan MacGregor and Tilda Swinton, but it plays really well as a stand-alone, largely instrumental mood rock album. It's a very mellow, very moody affair with lots of bottom end strings and a loose, languorous feel throughout. Byrne recorded the album in Glasgow with a number of notable indie vets from groups like Belle & Sebastian, the Delgados, and in particular Mogwai. 15 tracks including "Body In A River", "Mneumonic Discordance", "Seaside Smokes", "Canal Life", "Locks & Barges", "Inexorable", "Speechless", "The Great Western Road" and others.

Thrill Jockey, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice stuff from the duo of Chad Taylor and Rob Mazurek, two players who are currently among some of the best in Chicago's hot jazz/rock crossover scene. Taylor plays percussion and vibes, Mazurek plays cornet, piano, and flute – and the pair are joined by guitarist Jeff Parker on a number of tracks. Titles include "The Pursued", "Not Quite Dark Yet and The Stars Shining Above The Withered Fields", "Lemon Grass", and "The Big Bang Theory". CD

✨✧ TortoiseBeacons Of Ancestorship ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2009. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A diverse display of hard grooving avant instrumental soundscapes from Tortoise! All the descriptions of how groundbreaking Tortoise was in the earlier years, and forward looking they've remained throughout their career is all fine and good (and true) – but it isn't often discussed how flat out fun the group is at its best – and that's what we love about this record. Here they blend dynamics built from Krautrock and elastic proggy influences, electronic experimentalism, dubby bass, hypnotic soundtracky vibes, and even a little bit of raw, rugged punk into an overall approach that's Tortoise through and through. Titles include "High Class Slim Came Floatin In", "Prepare Your Coffin", "Northern Something", "Gigantes", "Penumbra", "Yinxianghechechengqi", "The Fall Of The Seven Diamonds Plus One", "Minors", Monument Six Thousand One Hundred", "De Chelly" and "Charteroak Foundation".

✨✧ TortoiseIt's All Around You (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wow, this is SO not the Tortoise that first set the underground aflame in the early 90s – the group has evolved and opened up in ways we never would have expected. With It's All Around You it's emerged with an airy, open, stargazing set of tracks that resemble the languid atmosphere of Tangerine Dream as much as they do early post rock! Gone, for the most part from early Tortoise is that strong, rubbery electric bass groove and tightly thudding live drum sound. It's All Around You retains the bright vibes and sputtering electronics of the TNT album, and the out front, almost rock & roll guitar lines of the Standards album – and adds an ever present, ambient synthesizer bubble of sound to surround the thing. It's all so catchy, too, and almost sunny. If Tortoise hasn't really broken any new ground this time, it's only because they're the ones who broke it in the first place. Tracks include "It's All Around You", The Lithium Shifts", "Crest", "Stretch", "Dot/Eyes", "By Dawn", "Five Too Many" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TortoiseMillions Now Living Will Never Die ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
Essential early-ish Tortoise – and among their best records ever! The bassy, heavily rhythmic aspect of their earlier recordings is as well intact and distinctive as it was on the benchmark self-titled album and earlier singles, but the group really branches out here and incorporates many more diverse elements. The 20+ minute opener "Djed" is as incredible as ever, starting with that brilliant bass line and some staticy effects, which is compelling enough, but soon the drums and organ kick in and it becomes what might be post rock's most epic instrumental anthem. The shorter tracks are hardly less vital. "A Survey", "The Taut And Tame", "Dear Grandma And Grandpa", "Glass Museum" and "Along The Banks Of Rivers". CD

✨✧ Sam PrekopComma ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A compelling step forward for Sam Prekop – a key member of Sea & Cake for many years, but maybe an even more engaging artist on his own! This set's different than some of Sam's previous records – in that it's all electric, really electronic – with modes that hearken back to early ambient experiments, and some of the Japanese work of the 80s – but which also ties things in more strongly to the crucial contemporary vibe of his scene! These aren't retro electronic modes – as some are freewheeling in rhythm, almost evoking the early Thrill Jockey records of Oval – while others are tuneful and more direct, but still with edges around the sides – a subtle rasp that makes it clear that the record is as much a project of Prekop the visual artist as it is the musician. Titles include "Comma", "September Remember", "Never Met", "Above Our Heads", "Circle Line", "Summer Places", "The New Last", and "Park Line". CD

Tortoise's third album, and pretty remarkable creative leap for the inventive Chicago ensemble – now with the great guitarist Jeff Parker in the fold! Like the earlier records, Like their earlier records, TNT features an incredibly haunting mix of percussion, electronics, and jazz-oriented instrumentation – put together with an approach that's even more sophisticated than earlier releases. That said, the guitar makes a huge difference – and there's a lot of guest players in the mix, including horns and strings. Definitely one of their best ever!

Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 Brown, and overall, it feels more like the work of a core band effort 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

✨✧ Sequoyah MurrayPenalties Of Love EP ... 12-inch
Thrill Jockey, 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A really amazing debut from Sequoyah Murray – a young soul singer we have a feeling we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Sequoyah's got a style that's very much his own – one born out of frequent collaboration and improvisation – with elements that are maybe as jazz-based at times as soul – often set to spare instrumentation with percussion, keyboards, and other subtle sonic elements – frequently very much in the low range of the sonic spectrum, but not in a way that leans heavily on basslines or beats. Instead, there's all these moody sub-spectrum elements that shimmer beneath the vocals – and which create a platform that makes the whole thing unlike anything else we've ever heard. Titles include "True Fun", "Second Born", "Haven", and "Penalties Of Love". 12-inch, Vinyl record
