David Boykin OutetEvidence Of Life On Other Planets Vol 1 ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1998. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great little jazz record that really shows the rich talents in the current Chicago scene. David Boykin plays a deep rich tenor, in the tradition of the Chicago hardbop greats, but filtered through a later AACM-ish sense of spirituality. He's working here in a nice group of lesser known players that includes the excellent flautist Nicole Mitchell, bassist Josh Abrams, drummer Chad Taylor, and vocalist Glenda Baker. The record has a rich sense of imagination, and evokes the early recordings of the AACM in a very nice way. Titles include "Astro Lilly", "Elonice", "Conundrum", and "Hypnotic".

CalifoneQuicksand/Cradlesnakes ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Califone perfects the meandering, deep blues-tinged psych-folk soul-baring Tim Rutili, Ben Massarella and co. have been working on since the great Red Red Meat dissolved. There's a lot of soft, creaky melodies beneath all the clatter that really cuts right to the bone – the group makes you work for it, but there's a helluva a lot of beauty to be dug here! Tracks include "One", "Horoscopic", Michigan Girls", "Your Golden Ass", "Town", "Mean Little Seed" and others. LP, Vinyl record album

Fox Millions DuoBiting Through (white vinyl pressing) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99 20.99
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

Sarah LouiseNighttime Birds And Morning Stars (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 20.99
The biggest creative stride yet for guitar experimentalist Sarah Louise! Sarah continues to use folk traditions – from acoustic guitar, to Appalachian songcraft, to field recordings of nature and more – as a springboard for inventive composition, but this might be the most distinctive and most abstractly inspired work we've heard from her to date. Rooted in 6 string guitar in standard tuning, but fleshed out tremendously with field recordings, bits of synth and really beautiful (and mostly wordless) vocals. Includes "Daybreak", "R Mountain", "Ancient Intelligence", "Rime", "Swarming At The Threshold", "Late Night Healing Choir", "Chitlin Flight" and "Nighttime Birds And Morning Stars".

Sequoyah MurrayPenalties Of Love EP ... 12-inch
Thrill Jockey, 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
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

Sea & CakeAny Day (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2018. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The Sea And Cake as fresh and breezy as ever! It's almost hard to believe, but Any Day marks the 25th years of The Sea And Cake – intermittently throughout that time span, anyway – and one of the most consistently brilliant runs in indie rock. They've always had an easygoing melodic sound, but never to sugary in the melodies and with slowburn appeal that makes their records forever listenable. Their sound is so distinctive, it's always good to have them back! Includes "Cover The Mountain", "I Shouldn't Care", the jazzy Brazilian pop-inspired title track, "Occurs", "Starling", "Paper Window", "Into Rain", "Circle", "These Failing Arms" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Clear vinyl pressing limited to indie stores. Includes download.)

Sea & CakeCar Alarm ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2008. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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.

Sea & CakeSea & Cake (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.99
One of the breeziest breaths of fresh air in mid 90s inide rock! As much as any band of the era, The Sea & Cake managed to filter diverse tastes into their own music, from easygoing, unaggressive indie pop & rock, to Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian pop, rock and soul rhythms, to some vaguely jazzy strains without every really sounding like anything other than The Sea & Cake. There's no overstating what a welcome sound The Sea & Cake brought to their early era, a period when noisier, much more aggressive sounds were so prominent in both the indie rock landscape and the modern rock mainstream, not that The Sea & Cake players' preceding or other concurrent projects paid much attention to overarching trends.Includes "Jacking The Ball", "Polio", "Flat Lay The Water", "So Long To The Captain", "Lost In Autumn", "Showboat Angel", "Bombay" and more.

Thrill Jockey, 2009. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A very cool tribute to the greatness of the Record Store – a limited edition record release, and one that comes with a special zine too! The zine features memories of record stores past and present – written by Mike Watt, Julie Cafritz, Nathan Means, aNDEE, Peter Margasak, and others – and also comes with a special Recordstoreism manifesto – kind of an 11 Commandments of Record Shopping! The album features 5 hard to find tracks – "High Class Slim Came Floatin In" by Tortoise, "Window" by Mountains, "Stagger Lee" by Double Dagger, "Eye To Eye" by White Hills, and "Wounded Monkey" by Trans Am. Great cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeBack Together Again (plus bonus disc) ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Sea & CakeFawn ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1997. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Sea & Cake seemed to step up the electronic aspects of their trade a bit with The Fawn, with some breezy synth work here and there and subtly programmed drums and percussion. But the hallmark of the group is still sweet avant pop, which in its patented way manages to be soulful and groovy, yet still somewhat detached and aloof at the same time. Nice stuff by one of the most distinctive groups around. Tracks include "Sporting Life", "The Argument", "The Fawn", "The Ravine", "Rossignol", "There You Are", "Civilise" "Bird And Flag", "Black Tree In The Bee Yard", and "Do Now Fairly Well".

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". CD

Thrill Jockey, 1996. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Sidi ToureToubalbero ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2018. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Thrill Jockey, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Genius work from the Chicago Underground ensemble – expanded here from the duo of Rob Mazurek and Chad Taylor, to include guitarist Jeff Parker and bassist Noel Kuppersmith. Mazurek plays cornet and just a hint of electronics, and combined with the fractured guitar work of Parker, the modalling percussion and vibes of Taylor, and the warmly soulful bass of Kuppersmith, the blend of instrumentation has all the startling presence of a lost early 60s modern session that might have been recorded for a label like New Jazz or Savoy. Tracks include "Tunnel Chrome", "Four In The Evening", "Total Recovery", "Nostalgia", "Sink, Charge, Fixture", and "Three In The Morning". CD

✨✧ Jeff ParkerRelatives ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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! 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)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TortoiseCatastrophist (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ 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
