The New Pornographers
In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights

In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights is the eighth album from these classic pop people from Canada. Working as a collective around leader and songwriter A C Newman they also include star-in-her-own-right Neko Case and have so far produced a slew of albums of melodic power-pop and indie rock. Expect thoughtful compositions and emotional lyrical concerns about the mess we are all in.  

Cybotron
Enter

Cybotron was of course the outfit who appeared right at the very beginning of the Detroit techno explosion. They featured Juan Atkins who would go on to be a major player in the movement going forward. Here they produce a fascinating form of cosmic funk which drew comparisons with Kraftwerk and George Clinton and were eventually sampled on Missy Elliott's Lose Control which is just one reason of many why the album is considered such a classic.  

Violent Femmes
Hallowed Ground

Following up a classic like the Violent Femmes debut was always going to be a big ask. However, Gordon Gano had saved some classics for Hallowed Ground, such as Country Death Song, which he wrote in 10th Grade. Gano did use Hollowed Ground to display some of his Christian beliefs, lyrically taking the band in a different direction.

Terry Callier
The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier

The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier was the debut album by the celebrated guitarist. The album was recorded in one afternoon in 1964, capturing a raw talent in his element. With just voice, guitar and a pair of bass players, Callier infuses jazz and soul with folk to create a unique sound. The album wasn’t released until 1968 as the master tape was temporarily lost. This reissue comes with new liner notes by Jason Woodbury which add a valuable narrative to the album. 50th anniversary 2LP reissue featuring 5 previously unreleased alternate takes.

Violent Femmes
Violent Femmes

Although the Violent Femmes took their cues from Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers, their self-titled debut blended folk and punk unlike anyone before or since. The album is a true classic. Contains Femmes fan favourites Gone Daddy Gone, Add It Up and the world famous Blister In The Sun. LP and CD on Concord. CD contains two bonus tracks.

Pokey LaFarge
Manic Revalations

Hello Mrs LaFarge  - is your Pokey in? It really is quite some name but that hasn’t stopped the Poke-meister from forging a decent career as an old fashioned songwriter just sayin; what he’s see in’, adding horns to it and sounding something like Graham Parker and the Rumour or maybe a hint of Dexys. Good solid fun.

Pulled Apart By Horses
The Haze

Gravel voiced rockers Pulled Apart By Horses return with their fourth album of pummelling jams. Described as Leeds' hardest rocking band they have been all the way down to Sheffield to record this with producer Ross Orton resulting in another batch of abrasive, noisy but tuneful rackets to shake your head about to. 

Stan Getz & Cal Tjader
Stan Getz & Cal Tjader Sextet

This newly reissued vinyl addition is a ‘MUST HAVE’ title for for both Getz and Tjader fans. In the vein of many a smooth West Coast jazz outing, this 1958 disc finds original cool stylist Getz paired with vibraphonist Cal Tjader on a very enjoyable selection of jazz standards and Tjader originals. The lineup includes pianist Vince Guaraldi, guitarist Eddie Duran, bassist Scott La Faro, and drummer Billy Higgins (this was one of the earliest record dates for either La Faro or Higgins, both of whom were playing with Getz at San Francisco's Black Hawk in between recording sessions). Guaraldi's spry "Ginza Samba" kicks thing off with nimble and imaginative statements by all the soloists. Tjader's swinging originals "Crow's Nest" and "Big Bear" provide prime solo vehicles as well, while his lovely waltz number "Liz-Anne" adds some nice contrast to the set, eliciting one of Getz's best solos in the process. The group rounds things out with fine ballad readings of "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" and "For All We Know."

Cannonball Adderley Quintet
In San Francisco

A classic and soulful hard-bop effort from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet. In San Francisco is a great testiment to not only Adderley and co, but to the jazz scene in the late 50's and early 60's. With bebop over a decade old and the west-coast sound pervading the start of the 50's, cats like Art Blakey, Horace Silver, and Adderley were playing their own funky gospel tinged hard-bop - taking the forum back to it's roots. With brilliant originals from Adderley, Timmons and Monk. A collection essential. Out on vinyl LP from Concord Records.
