Funeral

by Arcade Fire
$19.99
Arcade Fire brought a fresh theatricality, intensity, insanity, and a penchant for amazing hooks to their debut full length release, Funeral. Channelling elements of Neutral Milk Hotel, Broken Social Scene, and Roxy Music's first two albums, it's unlikely you've heard such energy, such beauty and such emotion from such a young band. Their breakthrough release was heralded with nearly universal praise upon its release in 2004, and it was subsequently nominated for a Grammy for Alternative Music Album of the Year. Funeral has continued to gain popularity and accolades among music fans and critics alike ever since, appearing on numerous "Best of the Decade" lists around the world including NMEQPitchforkThe GuardianMOJO, and Rolling Stone, which named it the No. 1 album of the '00s.

Bob Dylan - More Blood, More Tracks - The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 - the latest chapter in Columbia/Legacy's highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series makes available the pivotal studio recordings made by Bob Dylan during six extraordinary sessions in 1974--four in New York (September 16, 17, 18, 19) and two in Minneapolis (December 27, 30)--that resulted in the artist's 1975 masterpiece, Blood On The Tracks. One of the top-selling albums of Dylan's career, Blood On The Tracks redefined the boundaries and structures of modern pop songwriting (a genre Dylan had virtually invented a decade prior), reached #1 on the Billboard 200, achieved RIAA 2x Platinum status and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2015. 

The single disc of More Blood, More Tracks assembles 10 of the most emotionally resonant alternate takes of each of the 10 songs appearing the original Blood On The Tracks plus a previously unreleased version of "Up to Me."

Post-Apocalypto (LP)

by Tenacious D
$44.99
Acclaimed rock duo and basically everyone’s favourite band ever Tenacious D -- comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass -- will release not one but TWO incredible works this fall.  Both are called Post-Apocalypto.  Both are amazing.  Here’s what you need to know:

 

Post-Apocalypto - THE SERIES - is an original, six-part animated video series from the minds of Tenacious D.  Each frame of every episode was hand-drawn by Jack himself, with every character voiced by Black and Gass. 

 

All six episodes feature new Tenacious D songs, culminating in a new Tenacious D album -- also called POST-APOCALYPTO, set for release on November 2, 2018. Produced by John Spiker, and featuring long-time collaborator Dave Grohl on drums, POST-APOCALYPTO - THE ALBUM - is a genius addition to The D’s already scintillating catalogue of rock greatness.

 

True to the title, Post-Apocalypto finds Tenacious D thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb.  Surviving the attack in classic cinematic fashion (a good old imperishable 1950’s refrigerator), the duo quickly learns that new forms of evil have spawned from the blast.  One thing becomes apparent -- for humanity to prevail, Tenacious D must save the world.

    Experience Hendrix, Legacy Recordings, and Sony Music Entertainment, proudly release Both Sides of the Sky, a dynamic new Jimi Hendrix album featuring 13 studio recordings made between 1968 and 1970 - 10 of which have never before been released.

Beginning with Valleys of Neptune (2010), and followed by People, Hell and Angels (2013). This third release is anticipated to complete the spectacular recording event in epic fashion.

    Recorded between January 1968 and February 1970, Jimi’s desire to push the boundaries of blues music can be heard throughout. Both Sides of the Sky additionally highlights Jimi’s mastery of studio production and his increasing use of these facilities as a proving ground for new sounds, material, and techniques.

    Both Sides of the Sky also features an assortment of notable guest musicians, including Stephen Stills, Johnny Winter, and Lonnie Youngblood.

    Both Sides of the Sky was produced by Janie Hendrix, John McDermott, and Eddie Kramer. Kramer served as recording engineer on every Jimi Hendrix album made during the artist’s life.

    SPECIES DECEASES (GOLD SERIES CD)

    by Midnight Oil
    $9.95

    Released in 1985 Species Deceases was Midnight Oil's second four-track EP. Stand out tracks include "Progress" - a fine guitar anthem with tons of solid riffs, and "Hercules" - exciting dynamics, a nice singalong chorus, and even some backwards guitars on the fade.

    REDNECK WONDERLAND (GOLD SERIES CD)

    by Midnight Oil
    $9.95

     

    This release is very much a response to the Australian political landscape of its time. With race and immigration issues dominant, then and today, Midnight Oil re-name Australia as something less than grand, Redneck Wonderland. Beneath the gun-toting kangaroo on the cover, you'll find a fortified, biting Midnight Oil. The title track is worth its weight in gold, while other stand-out moments include White Skin Black Heart and Safety Chain Blues. Fierce and true of heart, the Oils have never sounded better.

    1. Redneck
    2. Concrete
    3. Cemetery In My Mind
    4. Comfortable Place On The Couch

    RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET (GOLD SERIES CD)
    The sails refer to the shell-like roof of the Sydney Opera House. They're red because they're glowing - glowing in the aftermath of a nuclear blast, as the cover art so blatantly depicts. The amazing, futuristic artwork is by Japanese artist Tsunehisa Kimura, and its themes are echoed in tracks like Harrisburg (the plant is burning down ... you cannot get out) and When Generals Talk. Also includes the stomping Best Of Both Worlds.

    I can’t believe the perfect family on my colour TV. If I don’t make it to the top it’ll never bother me.' Ah, but make it to the top they did, and with grace and integrity. This is vintage Oils, with the unforgettable title track dominating the show. Don't Wanna Be the One (from which the above lyrics were taken) is a stomper, while Lucky Country tells it like it is.

    $9.95
    Already well on their way to becoming one of the best live acts this country has ever produced, Midnight Oil released this debut disc on their own, newly-formed label, Powderworks, in 1978. A kind of pre-politicised version of the Oils, some of the many mighty tracks include Used And Abused and the single Run By Night. Only a hint of what was to come...

    1. Powderworks
    2. Head Over Heels
    3. Dust
    4. Used And Abused
    5. Surfing With A Spoon
    6. Run By Night

    HEAD INJURIES (GOLD SERIES CD)

    HEAD INJURIES (GOLD SERIES CD)

    by Midnight Oil
    $9.95
    A sense of urgency underlines this release. Recorded in Sydney in 1979, the power of Head Injuries remains undiminished. The biting No Reaction and Cold Cold Change are stand-out moments, but the centrepiece has got to be Section 5 (Bus To Bondi). You can't hop on a bus to Sydney's most famous beachside suburb without humming it. Classic, timeless Midnight Oil - a must-have release.

    1. Cold Cold Change
    2. Section 5 (Bus To Bondi)
    3. Naked Flame

    CAPRICORNIA (GOLD SERIES CD)

    CAPRICORNIA (GOLD SERIES CD)

    by Midnight Oil
    $9.95

     

    Since 1990's benchmark Blue Sky Mining disc, Australian agitprop rockers Midnight Oil have arguably functioned better in theory than in practice. You can't nitpick the band's politics--however left they may lean, they are at their core humanist--but while theirs is a noble cause, music, at its core, is entertainment. Tough talk about land misappropriated from aboriginals is just not what most folks crave day after day, record after record. While no one will walk away from Capricornia confusing Midnight Oil with knuckleheads like Sum 41, most will notice an appreciable softening of the edges, especially musically. Songs like the outstanding "Tone Poem," though lyrically driven by sobering ecological questions, is also notable for a bridge and chorus built on a chiming, instantly memorable guitar part. Similarly, "Under the Overpass" drapes a snippet of melody from Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" over a springy keyboard bit that Brian Wilson might have fashioned for a top-down corker. Capricornia--its title track buoyed by one of the Oil's most insistent choruses--is a rock record, but it's one with more settings than "pummel."

    1. Golden Ag
    2. Too Much Sunshine
    3. Capricornia
    4. Luritja Way

    BREATHE (GOLD SERIES CD)

    by Midnight Oil
    $9.95
    This long-surviving, quintessential Australian band has always been a multi-faced beast. This is not the rollicking, angry Oils we’re used to. Breathe sees Midnight Oil take a more subtle approach, without sacrificing any of the power that made them great. Country flavours dominate in One Too Many Times, while melody and rhythm meld in Underwater. The gorgeous Surf Up Tonight hints quietly at their roots, while other highlights include Gravelrash, Time To Heal and the mesmerising refrain of Star Of Hope. Country queen Emmylou Harris makes a guest appearance.

    1. Underwater

    by Midnight Oil
    $9.95

     

    Midnight Oil sing about yellow bellied black snakes and Peter Brock on King Of The Mountain, one of their most rockingly striking tunes to date. It’s worth getting this disc just for that track, but there’s heaps more here, such as Shakers And Movers, Antarctica and the song which gives the disc its name. Indispensable Oils.

    1. Blue Sky Mine
    2. Stars Of Warburton
    3. Bedlam Bridge
    4. Forgotten Years
    5. Mountains Of Burma

    by Midnight Oil
    $9.95
    Bird Noises' is Midnight Oil's first extended play, which was released on 24 November 1980 under the band's own independent label, Powderworks / Sprint Music.
    'Bird Noises' reached the Top 30 on the Australian Singles Chart. The EP "continued the development heard on [their previous album], with 'No Time for Games' and 'I'm the Cure' being particularly impressive. It also boasted the anomalous, but delightful Shadows-like instrumental 'Wedding Cake Island'

    1. No Time For Games

    3. Wedding Cake Island
    4. I'm The Cure
    10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 (GOLD SERIES CD)
    This early Midnight Oil release contains many of the songs and stances which they would come to be identified with. A political album, the most unconservative Oils stomp their way through the incendiary US Forces and Power And The Passion. The intense Short Memory tells of their anti-war agenda, while Only the Strong remains one of their most potent tracks. Unbelievably excellent.

    Synthesis (CD)

    by Evanescence
    $19.95

    EVANESCENCE return with SYNTHESIS, their fourth and most ambitious album to date, set for release on November 10th via Sony Music Entertainment. The album features a reworking of some of EVANESCENCE’s best-loved songs, recorded with a full orchestra and electronica, combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice. 

    EVANESCENCE--lead singer-songwriter and pianist Amy Lee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist Jen Majura worked with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell on SYNTHESIS which also features two new EVANESCENCE songs, the first of which, entitled ‘Imperfection’ released today.  SYNTHESIS also includes a guest performance by famed violinist Lindsey Stirling on ‘Hi-Lo’ the other new song on the album.

    “This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” explains Amy Lee of EVANESCENCE. “I’ve always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation. This will be our first time touring with orchestra and I’m so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we’ve built over the years. I’m also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack.”

    Australia holds a huge fan base for EVANESCENCE with the band having in excess of 700,000 ARIA accredited album sales over their career so far. 

    In what promises to be the biggest year for EVANESCENCE yet, the group are pleased to announce they will be returning to our shores for the first time in 6 years for an exclusive East Coast SYNTHESIS LIVE tour in February 2018, produced by TEG Live and Sony Music Entertainment. With this unique tour, the band will be performing songs from their highly anticipated new album SYNTHESIS along with many of their fan favourites. Hosting their brand new live show in some of the country’s most picturesque venues, EVANESCENCE are offering fans an experience like never before.
