Big Star
Complete Columbia: Live at University of Missouri

In one of the more surprising moves of the '90's former Box Top and professional grump since 1976 Alex Chilton was persuaded to reform his classic early '70s power pop band Big Star. The two surviving/interested members were joined by crazy haired Seattle two-some the Posies. This collection is the complete recording of their set at University of Missouri and includes run throughs of many of their ignored at the time but now popular numbers as well as nicely a take on fallen Big Star comrade Chris Bell's 'I Am the Cosmos'.  This is the first time the complete set has been released.

Blonde Redhead
Peel Sessions

Dream pop outfit Blonde Redhead grace John Peel with their lovely songs, which sound like shoegaze if it were getting the mud off on a welcome rug. The trio offer up just two cuts for this 7", the quite nice "Where Is John?" (named after, you know, the eponymous radio guy they were waiting for), and b-side "Missile". Nice!

Captain Beefheart
Live at Knebworth 1975

Although Beefheart was in something of a creative slump mid '70s, he returned to Knebworth each year to perform his avant boogie blues. Here he seems to stick to a tried and tested setlist of freakout favourites which must have delighted any hippies still hanging on as well as proto new wavers waiting for punk to come along. Comes on orange wax and is a re-press of the RSD16 item thus banging another nail into the coffin of Record Store Day. 

Death Cab For Cutie
Tractor Rape Chain

The classic 'Bee Thousand' era Guided By Voices track has been reworked by Mark Kozelek pal Ben Gibbard and his Death Cab For Cuties for a indie-rock geek guy pleasing 7". There's another song on the B side but I'm not sure what that is. It will set you back £10.99. I got a nice Mexican Wrap, fries and half a beer for that amount last night. Who's the winner?

Malcolm Middleton
You & I

A taster for his forthcoming 'Summer of '13' record this 7" contains three new tracks from the former Arab Strap bloke with his cheeky brand of Scottish pop. On Nude. I had no idea that label was still going. You learn something every single day including how to flub your way to a word limit.

Masayoshi Fujita and Guy Andrews
Needle Six

Phil thinks Guy Andrews was the guy who sang that cover of 'Mad World' but I think he's hopelessly wrong. Guy Andrews in instead a London based producer and here he has collaborated on a live BBC 'Late Junction' session with Japanese vibraphone player Masayoshi Fujita. It has now been released on a very limited 12" to make your Record Store Day just that little bit more improvised.  

Mercury Rev / Lost Horizons
Rainy Day Record / Life Inside A Paradox

Musical theatre influenced future popsters Mercury Rev take a track from their most recent and possibly most absurd record 'The Light In You'. Overleaf is something potentially interesting, Lost Horizons contain Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins/Bella Union boss) alongside someone from Dif Juz. Sharon Van Etten guests. Don't Cease your Dif Juz ramblings for a while.  

Michael Chapman
Savage Amusement

Savage Amusement is Michael Chapman’s 8th album and was recorded in 1976. It finds Chapman’s folk guitar stylings augmented by fellow guitarists Tim Renwick (Al Stewart) and Andy Latimer (Camel) whilst the rhythm section is supplied by drummer Keef Hartley and bassist Rick Kemp (Steeleye Span). Peter Wood (Al Stewart) and Muscle Shoals session player Leo LeBlanc complete the band on keys and pedal steel respectively.

MMOTHS
Deu

Irish producer MMOTHS is in no hurry with his tracks: the title track on Deu takes its sweet time emerging from ambient haze into a lazy shuffle, backed with vocals so distant and whispy that this could almost be shoegaze. All of this is definitely a good thing of course: we like a producer whose big on atmosphere. 10” vinyl on Because Music.

Mueller_Roedelius
The Vienna Remixes

Christoph H. Mueller of Gotan Project and komische-lord Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster produced some very fine pieces of atmospheric electronic drift on their first collaboration: this release introduces some remixers to the original material. Ken Hayakawa, Takamovsky and Peter Kruder all step up and get involved. 12” on Gronland.

Patrick Gauthier
Bébé Godzilla

Listen up, you fans of vintage French prog! Patrick Gauthier has played in Heldon and Magma, so he has impeccable prog chops. Bébé Godzilla was his debut as a solo artist, in which he brought in the likes of Richard Pinhas and Christian Vander to help him realise his jazz-rock vision. First-time reissue, limited to 1000 copies on transparent blue vinyl, on Souffle Continu.

Stanley Brinks and The Kaniks
Turtle Dove

Stanley Brinks, perhaps better known as Andre Herman Dune, follows two collaborative albums with The Wave Pictures by collaborating with Norwegian Folk group The Kaniks. Recorded on a remote Norwegian island and inspired by midnight swims and midnight beer drinking, Brinks and the Kaniks recorded three albums. Turtle Dove is the first to see the light of day. Pressed on blue vinyl and housed in gatefold sleeve.

The Liminanas
Gardens Of Love / Maria's Theme

The Limiñanas are the garage/psych pop outlet for French couple Lio and Marie Limiñana. Garden of Love, which features Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order, Monaco) is taken from their latest album Malamore. It is backed with the exclusive track Maria’s Theme. 7", limited to 300 copies.

Trespassers William
Anchor

Slow team Trespassers William reissue one of their many requiems just in time for RSD: 'Anchor' is early days for the band, back when they were teens trying to one up Slint in the race for prodigal indie rock talent. These tracks see the band begin to traverse their twin sounds: wide-open ambient 'scapes and plain but plaintive indie pop songs. Lovely, of course. Of course.

Various
Pay No Attention

Too Pure have been running their monthly 7” Singles Club for long enough that they’ve amassed a catalogue 100 releases deep! They’ve decided to celebrate by issuing this limited edition LP of premium selections from the 7”s to date: Pulled Apart By Horses, Menace Beach and Hookworms are among the bands represented.

Music From The Motion Picture: The Ballad Of Genesis & Lady Jaye

This is the soundtrack of the remarkable story of the pandrogyne project between Genesis P. Orridge and his/her partner Lady Jaye in which by way of thousands of pounds worth of plastic surgery Genesis more resembled his/her wife. A tale where the lyrics of the Beautiful South song 'We Are Each Other' came true. The great soundtrack features lots Genesis's projects such as Psychic TV, Thee Majesty and other collaborations.     

Virginia Wing
Rhonda

Probably one of the better Record Store Day releases this year, ace London quartet Virginia Wing tease you a couple of new tracks from what will be their brand new record in due course. If it's anything like the last one it will appeal to fans of Broadcast, Stereolab and fans of all things kraut and pop.
