Allah-Las [Covers #1 (Ltd)]

November 3 street date. Following their 2016 album Calico Review, Allah-Las return with Covers #1, the first in a series of EPs exploring tunes near and new to the band. For the debut EP in the series, the band offers renditions of George Harrison's "Fish On The Sand," Kathy Heideman's "The Earth Won't Hold Me," 90s LA cult band Further's "JO Eleven," and Television's "Hard On Love,” an unreleased song from the band’s Marquee Moon recording sessions. Allah-Las recorded Covers #1 at the Pump House in Topanga Canyon while working on material for their next full-length release. The selections are comprised of old faves and newly discovered tracks that became ubiquitous sounds in the studio between album takes. The EP will be released on Mexican Summer on November 3, 2017 as a limited edition 10” encased in a high quality embossed jacket and through all digital formats.
Bell Witch [Mirror Reaper (2LP)]

October 20 street date. Seattle duo’s follow-up to acclaimed album Four Phantoms from 2015! Produced by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Melvins, Neurosis, Pallbearer, Red House Painters, etc.) With their third full-length album Mirror Reaper, Seattle doom metal duo Bell Witch have created their most enormous and all-encompassing work to date. The band takes their blueprint for minimalistic, mournful, yet massive sound and expands it to a new level, doing the unthinkable in the genre: a continuous 83-minute piece unfolding as a single time-stretching track. Once again engineered and mixed by veteran producer Billy Anderson (who claims this as one of the milestones in his entire producing career) the duo of Dylan Desmond (bass, vocals) and Jesse Shreibman (drums, vocals, organ) push the sound even further beyond their landmark 2015 album, the genre-defining Four Phantoms. With organ adding a new layer, the album also sees honorary member and guest vocalist Erik Moogridge (Aerial Ruin) return once again offering an even more prominent presence with his vocals. The doom metal album to push all boundaries: a single 83 minute track—a milestone in the genre! (Look for them on TOUR!)
Bring Me The Horizon [2004-2013]

Please note: new street date is November 24. (Vinyl is 2LP w/ Download) Their greatest hits from the Epitaph years including “Can You Feel My Heart” and “Sleepwalking” !! BRING ME THE HORIZON are currently one of the biggest bands in the active rock scene. But back in the early part of the century they were angst ridden boys from England and their sound was deathcore. BMTH have changed a lot over the years, when they formed in 2003, the band played thrashy, breakdown-studded songs influenced by the screaming, slashing sound of American metalcore. Gradually, the group began incorporating electronic passages, acoustic strumming, ominous keyboards and orchestral elements into their music, and the band became all the more popular for it. Yet, despite their experimentation, BRING ME THE HORIZON remained undeniably rooted in metal. This collection of songs showcases the roots of the band, the best songs from their early releases on Epitaph Records, from 2004- 2013.

Cool Blue Halo [Kangaroo (re-issue of 1996 album from Halifax 4 piece)]

October 27 street date. Cool Blue Halo were a Halifax N.S. based power-pop four-piece. The album was originally issued in 1996 on a tiny independent label, No Records. Now, just over 20 years after its initial release, Kangaroo is getting a new lease on life via Toronto-based DWRecordings. Home to Michelle McAdorey’s Polaris Prize long-listed solo album, Into Her Future, the label is releasing an anniversary edition of Kangaroo on vinyl, & CD, remastered from the original tapes by renowned engineer João Carvalho and complete with new artwork featuring never-before-seen photos from Toronto-based photographer Katherine Pittman.

The song has never been officially available on CD. This is also the first time it's available on vinyl!!
Destroyer [Ken]

October 20 street date. (Standard LP is black vinyl in matte jacket with spot gloss detail & die cut Euro jacket. 11 x 11 insert + full album download included // CD is 4-panel matte digipak with spot gloss & 12-page insert (lyrics & credits)) Of his 12th studio album and its enigmatic title, Destroyer’s Dan Bejar offers the following: Sometime last year, I discovered that the original name for “The Wild Ones” (one of the great English-language ballads of the last 100 years or so) was “Ken.” I had an epiphany, I was physically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold on to this feeling, I decided to lift the original title of that song and use it for my own purposes. It’s unclear to me what that purpose is, or what the connection is. I was not thinking about Suede when making this record. I was thinking about the last few years of the Thatcher era. Those were the years when music first really came at me like a sickness, I had it bad. Maybe “The Wild Ones” speaks to that feeling, probably why Suede made no sense in America. I think “ken” also means “to know.” ken was produced by Josh Wells of Black Mountain, who has been the drummer in Destroyer since 2012. The album was recorded in its entirety in the jam space/studio space that the group calls The Balloon Factory. However, unlike Poison Season, ken was not recorded as a “band” record, though everyone in the band does make an appearance.
Escape-ism [Introduction To Escape-ism]

November 10 street date. Introduction to Escape-ism by Escape-ism isn’t a typical record. Oh, sure, it looks like one, with a label in the center and mysterious grooves etched on a sleek, black disc that glints in the light with a perverse air of knowing treachery. And sure, when a diamond needle is dragged through said groove, it shrieks and sputters with the familiar range of “rock ’n’ roll” sound effects: low-frequency bass, high-end hi-hat stutters, and a middlebrow voice that gasps and cries for love, justice, redemption, insurrection, everything. But this disc is different. Why? Because it’s the first “solo” record by Ian Svenonius—of groups The Make-Up, Chain & the Gang, XYZ, Weird War, etc. and author of underground bestsellers such as The Psychic Soviet, Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock ’n’ Roll Group, and Censorship Now!!—and as such, it’s profound, prophetic, perverse, and poetic… It’s introverted glitter, violence against the state, obsessive desire; it stomps on convention, shreds constitutions, clobbers pre-conceived notions of what a record can be. Yes, that’s right: a single-person performance by I F Svenonius—recognized by Performer Magazine as the “greatest performer on the planet”—Introduction to Escapeism is a bite into a one-banana bunch. A drum box, a guitar, a cassette player, and a single slobbering, sinful voice singing out… for a way out. Live, it’s a new paradigm of performance: raw, gestural, idiotic, sublime, revolutionary, poetic, faux naïf, unknowing, a drainage pipe that leads to who knows where. Escape-ism’s Introduction to Escape-ism isn’t just the soundtrack for a late-night drive on a lonely interstate, or a platter played to incite abandon at a pajama party with one’s pals. It’s also a tunnel to tomorrow. It’s a mineshaft to the motherlode.
Feathers, Charlie [Best Of the Sun Records Sessions]

November 3 street date. This newly compiled collection of recordings from rockabilly pioneer Charlie Feathers showcases the influential Memphis performer’s work at Sun Records (and related labels). Feathers started his musical career as a session musician at Sun Studios under Sam Phillips. His theatrical, hiccupping vocal style inspired a later generation of rock vocalists, including Lux Interior of The Cramps and Tav Falco, who contributed extensive liner notes and photos for the insert of this release.
Funkadelic [Reworked By Detroiters (3LP)]

November 3 street date. Funkadelic were the most influential group to emerge from Detroit in the 1970s. Their early albums have cast a long shadow over everything that came afterwards in the city. It was music that understood the past but was firmly aiming towards the future and mixed soul, funk and rock into an almost unimaginable stew. Albums such as “Maggot Brain”, “Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow” and “Cosmic Slop” are regularly featured in all-time greatest lists. Spearheaded by Brendan Gillen of Interdimensional Transmissions, the set features have full-on remixes, futuristic creations using the original track as an inspiration, disco-fied re-edits and skeletal dubs by some of the very finest talent now active in Detroit including Underground Resistance, Moodymann, Anthony Shake Shakir, Claude Young Jr., Recloose, Alton Miller, Dirtbombs, Amp Fiddler, Ectomorph and more. Available as a limited edition triple vinyl LP and as a 2CD digipak.
Harding, Curtis [Face Your Fear]

October 27 street date. CURTIS HARDING could best be described as a student of the gritty, sweat-dripping, hip-swinging blues that wafted through the air of the American sixties. The offspring of a mother who sang gospel, and a retired veteran, he traveled all over the country as a child, singing alongside his parents, learning that music was in fact the great communicator, and that the key was not just in how pretty the notes were, but how if you were honest in what you were singing, you could stir a person on the inside. This is what Otis Redding knew. What Sam Cooke, and Bo Diddley, and B. B. King knew. That somehow there was a way to take your experiences, your pain and joy, and give them melody, cause them to live and breathe and massage the hearts and minds of all those who hear. That is what CURTIS HARDING does on his new album, Face Your Fear. He figures out how to tap into the old soul man of the past without mimicking or bastardizing it, but instead evoking the spirit of the true Soul music of yesterday, meshed with the realities of now. With a little production help from his friends Sam Cohen and Danger Mouse, CURTIS HARDING has put together a collection of tunes that NME described as “soul-meets-garage pop perfection.”
Husker Du [Savage Young Du (4LP)]

November 10 street date. (available as 3CD or 4LP box) Experience the punishing sonic origins of a punk icon. Collected here for the first time, and skillfully remastered from original board tapes, demos, and session masters, this collection is an authoritative chronicling of the wellspring and maturation of Grant Hart, Greg Norton and Bob Mould—three St. Paul teenagers who’d go on to become the most heralded trio of the American punk underground. Follow the Hüskers to their earliest gigs in 1979, through extensive road dog touring, and to the start of their partnership with West Coast tastemak er SST in 1983. This primitive stage in the fabled car eer of Hüsker Dü is presented as a deluxe box set and packaged with a hardbound book crammed full of never before seen photos, flyers, and a sprawling essay with participation from the band. Spread across four LPs or three CDs, 47 of the 69 songs compiled here are previously unissued. Also included are Statues/Amusement, In A Free Land, Everything Falls Apart, and an alternate recording of the Land Speed Record set.
Jackson, Lynn [Follow That Fire]

October 20 street date. Already Top 10 in the Folk/Roots chart in Canada, the new Lynn Jackson album features 10 great new songs. Produced by Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) who also plays guitar alongside Josh Finlayson (Skydiggers) and Peter Timmins (Cowboy Junkies), the album is garnering rave reviews around the globe. It's a beautifully lush and vibey album that very much works as a complete piece. Andy Maize (Skydiggers) makes a guest appearance !
Loveless, Lydia [Boy Crazy & Single(s) (180g yellow vinyl)]

October 13 street date. A new collection of Lydia Loveless's summery 5-song EP Boy Crazy, on vinyl for the first time, plus six non-album singles and B-sides, including original songs in addition to inventive and bare-bones covers of Prince, Elvis Costello, and Kesha. The recordings span from 2012 to 2015, many of which are on CD and LP for the first time. These songs see Lydia and her band roping in their signature twangy pedalsteel- laden rock beat-em-ups and tying them tightly with the crisp Southern air of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Damn the Torpedoes and the snarling-but-sweet delivery of Juliana Hatfield's heyday. It's a summer set that arrives a little tardy this year just in time to prolong those long buzz-chasing July days when you hang out where you know you aren’t supposed to. This time you just don't care about getting caught.
Martinez, Cliff [Contagion: Original Soundtrack (gold & red vinyl)]

November 3 street date. Former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Cliff Martinez’s long-standing collaboration with director Steven Soderbergh ranks right up there with some of the other great composer-director teams in film history, like Bernard Herrmann-Alfred Hitchcock and Ennio Morricone-Sergio Leone, and his 2011 score for the disaster blockbuster Contagion is among his best work. Oddly, it owes some of its uniqueness to the fact that Soderbergh radically recut the film three different times, causing Martinez to adjust the score on the fly, first starting with a more conventional score indebted to thrillers like Marathon Man and The French Connection, then moving in a more dream-like, Tangerine Dream direction, before settling on a sound that incorporated orchestral and electronic timbres into highly propulsive and rhythmic framework. It’s like the most chilling, “chill-out” electronica you’ve ever heard, simultaneously hypnotic and horrifying…and for its first-ever vinyl release, we at Real Gone Music have fashioned a gatefold album cover featuring film production stills housing a limited gold and red “biohazard” starburst vinyl edition limited to 1200 copies. Between the look of the package and the disquieting music, this one’s guaranteed to get you to sign up for a flu shot.
Motorhead [Motorhead: 40th Anniversary edition (12 bonus tracks)]

November 3 street date. To mark the 40th anniversary of the very first Motörhead album, originally released on 21 August 1977, Ace Records present a 20-track digipak (with silver logo) CD which includes previously unheard recordings from the original album sessions. This new release is an expanded version of the original album with the addition of 7 previously unissued recordings made at the Escape Studio sessions on 28 and 29 April 1977. These previously unissued recordings were discovered when the original album tapes were taken out of storage for the first time in 35 years. In addition to the nine tracks from the original LP and four tracks from the “Beerdrinkers” EP, the new CD has seven alternate takes of well-loved Motorhead songs, namely, ‘Lost Johnny’, ‘City Kids’, ‘Witch Doctor’, ‘The Watcher’, ‘White Line Fever’, ‘Keep Us On The Road’ and ‘Motörhead’. A new 4000-word note by Ted Carroll and many fresh pix complete the package. Carroll promises that long-time Motörhead fans will love these alternate takes, especially the different version of ‘Motörhead’ with a ‘steaming’ guitar solo from Eddie Clarke
Phish [A Live One (4LP box)]

October 27 street date. A Live One, Phish’s first live album released originally released by Elektra in1995 on CD and cassette, was recorded primarily throughout Phish’s 1994 summer, fall and holiday concert tours. It was the first Phish album to be certified gold and remains Phish’s best selling album. The band produced the album in 1995 with Ed Thacker and his team of engineers at Bearsville Studios and was recorded by Paul Languedoc on multitrack DA-88 DTRS digital tapes. The 4-LP vinyl set contains twelve original tracks, five of which were previously unreleased. The laquers for the vinyl edition were cut from the 1/2" flat masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Each LP is pressed onto 180g split red/blue vinyl and includes full color extensive photo booklet and a free MP3 download of the album transferred from vinyl.
Propagandhi [Victory Lap]

September 29 street date / October 13 for LP (date change). VICTORY LAP IS THE BAND’S SEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM (Their first in 5 years!! Rejoice!!) The first thing to know, if you want to know about Propagandhi, is that they came here to rock. Right from the snarling opening riff of their seventh album, Victory Lap, that much is clear. For everything else that swirls around the band now, and for the last 31 years — the politics, the people and, lately, a gnawing sense of despair — the sheer volume of it all hasn’t changed. Frontman Chris Hannah and bassist Todd Kowalski experienced a big change in the band when after nine years with Propagandhi, guitarist David “The Beaver” Guillas left the band for a teaching position and the band added a new member , Sulynn Hago, a seasoned guitar-slinger from Tampa, Florida. (That said, Guillas is still all over Victory Lap, contributing licks to four songs.) So what do you do, when you’re an unapologetically political band in a time when political speech seems more fractured than it has been in years? When the darkness looms and the rapacious maws of power seem to devour more by the day? You can’t stop the violence; you can’t save the world. But neither can you stand to sit back, and just watch it all burn. So here’s what you do: you strap up a guitar and get ready to rock.
Roach, Steve [Structures From Silence]

Please note new street date: October 20. Deluxe 1st time reissue of Steve Roach's game-changing 1984 ambient album!! Includes bonus download for 3 hours of unreleased material!! - In 1984, electronic composer (and Motocross racer) Steve Roach released a cassette that went on to change the face of modern ambient music forever. That album is "Structures From Silence" and Telephone Explosion will be reissuing it on vinyl September 29. "Structures From Silence" marked a significant change for Roach and his approach to making music. Gone was the sequencer-driven trance of his earliest ambient releases, replaced entirely with tracks devoid of percussion. The result is an album that breathes and sways with exquisite gentleness. "Structures From Silence might be less trumpeted than, say, Eno’s Ambient records, but in terms of emotional affect and textural flair, it more than trumps them." - Fact Magazine. // "The three extended compositions that comprise Structures arise out of such quiescence; the loops and gentle melodic refrains spire upwards and suggest vistas." Pitchfork's "Best Ambient Albums Of All Time"
Segall, Ty [Slaughterhouse (2x12" +Bonus Track)]

October 20 street date. A reissue of the 2012 debut release by the Ty Segall Band on In The Red, featuring a bonus song not on the original release! The Ty Segall Band is Ty Segall (obviously), Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moonheart and Emily Rose Epstein. While Segall has released many incredible solo releases, Slaughterhouse marks the first time he recorded with his touring band. For this mini-album (originally released as a double 10-inch, but now expanded to a double 12-inch) the band recorded with Chris Woodhouse at the Hangar, turned their amps all the way up, set their fuzz pedals on “obliterate” and commenced to kick ass and take names. Seriously, this record will melt your face. All of Segall’s usual psych-pop sensibilities are present but Slaughterhouse adds the full-throttle, go-for-the-throat bombast that the band delivers in the live setting. The fuzz riffs, bratty howl and Cro-Magnon bashing culminate with a feedback freakout that’s clearly the only sensible way to end a workout of this magnitude in shit to announce the debut release by the Ty Segall Band.
Shane, Jackie [Any Other Way (2LP)]

October 20 street date. Known by genre aficionados as one of the greatest singers and most riveting stage presences in soul music, Jackie Shane has remained largely unknown outside Toronto, where her career briefly flowered in the 1960s. Beyond her unmistakable gift of the gab, Shane is a pioneer of transgender rights, born in a male body but unabashedly living her entire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed unthinkable. Any Other Way is the first artist-approved collection of Ms. Shane’s work, collecting all six of her 45s and every highlight from the legendary 1967 live sessions at the Sapphire Tavern, including three mind blowing, previously unreleased tracks. Rob Bowman’s 20,000 word essay is Jackie’s first communication with the public in nearly half a century, telling for the first time ever Jackie Shane’s story in her own wor ds. This deluxe two album (or two CD) set is copiously illustrated with never-before seen pictures from a career and a life unlike any other.
Spoon [Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2LP includes "Get Nice" EP) 2017 remaster]

October 20 street date. (2LP is double gatefold with LP1 in Euro sleeve & LP2 in die-cut red paper sleeve + full album download) Remastered by Howie Weinberg, the 10th anniversary 2-LP edition of Spoon’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga features the studio album on one LP and the 12-track Get Nice! EP—previously available only as a bonus CD—on the other. Both are pressed on 180-gram vinyl packaged in a gatefold jacket with updated art. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga was recorded throughout 2006 in Austin, TX, by the band and Mike McCarthy (except “The Underdog” which was recorded in Los Angeles with Jon Brion). Upon release, critics and listeners alike praised the record, which subsequently received Best New Music status from Pitchfork and cracked the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s Best Albums of 2007.
