Bitchin Bajas [Bajas Fresh (2LP)]

November 17 street date. (Available on double LP or double cassette) It’s been over three years since the last proper Bitchin Bajas album — a natural paradise of woodwinds, droning organs, analog synths, field recordings, and an ever-expanding sense of MORE (and LESS). In between then and now came a series of collaborative LPs, with Natural Information Society (Automaginary), filmmaker Olivia Wyatt (Sailing a Sinking Sea) and Bonny Prince Billy (Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties). Each time these varied external stimuli came into contact with the Bitchin Bajas’ acroamatic process, it left the group with expanded perimeters to traverse. On Bajas Fresh, the cellular system of Bitchin Bajas continues to synthesize amid a growing ecosystem also of the Bajas’ making, both morphing naturally together into a state perhaps not that far removed from its former incarnation, while also essaying refreshing new tones for new zones. Succulent half-speed mastering done at Abbey Road gives the LP pressing greater depth, extension and resonance than all previous Bajas incarnations, but the double cassette version of course holds its own unique experience.
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.
Carr, James [The Best Of]

December 1 street date. James Carr’s Goldwax career, lasting from the end of 1964 to early 1970, is revered among soul music fans. He only made it into the lower half of the Hot 100 Pop charts but managed to hit the R&B charts nine times out of fourteen releases; each success is here. His intensely emotive style has continued to win fans long after his career and life ended, while his reputation has climbed into the top echelons of soul singers, mentioned by those who know with similar awe to those of Otis, Aretha and Sam Cooke. Ace has covered his Goldwax recordings in great detail but we have never released a Greatest Hits compilation for music fans who want one handy package of the very best tracks. All these tracks have been picked for their musical excellence and to show the wide range of soul styles Carr could apply himself to.
Deltron 3030 [The Instrumentals (2LP/die-cut jacket)]

November 17 street date. Deltron 3030 The Instrumentals is the sibling of Deltron 3030's legendary self-titled debut and an experience all its own. Since the record’s release in 2000, Deltron 3030 has moved into the pantheon of greatest recordings of all time, of any genre. Del’s Deltron Zero persona certainly has much to do with the release’s setting in a dystopian future. But beyond that, and beyond the great guest appearances the foundation of that setting is the sonic landscape presented by Dan The Automator. The Instrumentals puts the focus on the mood forged by The Automator’s soundscapes which create a listening experience often referred to as cinematic. Long out of print since its initial release in 2001, The Instrumentals return housed in a unique die-cut jacket with a full color obi rounding out the package. The result is a set that’s visual appeal compliments the rich soundscape created by Dan The Automator.
Ethier, Andre [Under Grape Leaves]

Please note: new street date is December 15. In Andre Ethier’s (The Deadly Snakes) remarkable album 'Under Grape Leaves', a world emerges in and out of focus under the dappled green light of a backyard arbor. This collection of songs offers a kind of escape, but the invitation is less about checking out than it is about checking in. The record feels like a surreal and subtle manifesto for embracing radical domesticity in the midst of the modern storm, which here is just a distant synthetic rumble in the background. There are shifts in perspective and in landscape, from the rhythms of dishes knocking together in the sink to the space between the sea and the sea wall. Blending acoustic guitar with common household instruments like flute, recorder, and a drum machine, this feels homemade in the most literal sense. But this isn’t to say that it the record doesn’t come across as carefully constructed — the attention to detail is evident in each well considered line and in the whole project’s wave-like flow. This is Andre's 3rd solo album, which was produced by Sandro Perri (Constellation Records / DFA).
G.B.H. [Momentum]

November 17 street date. The influential, long-lived punk metal band G.B.H rose to prominence in England during the early '80s when hardcore punk began inching toward heavy metal. Emerging from the streets of Birmingham, England, GBH pioneered hardcore punk and thrash yet refuse to categorize themselves or their music. “We play punk rock, period” says lead singer Colin Abrahall. We just carry on, playing what we like. We never set out to do anything other than that.” GBH never stray far from their working class roots. You are just as likely to find GBH playing a local pub in England as a multi-thousand fan festival in Spain or Japan. The fact is GBH enjoy playing small clubs just as much as large halls. “Some of my favorite shows in the States are in small towns”, says guitarist Colin “Jock” Blyth, “the kids there don’t get a lot of bands coming through. They’re so excited and there’s so much energy; it’s a real communal thing.” GBH maintain a very active touring schedule which includes headline shows and festivals worldwide. Their brand new Hellcat Records album entitled Momentum is GBH's 11th studio album and will be the band’s follow up to the acclaimed 2010 release, Perfume and Piss. GBH are road dogs and will be touring the world in support of Momentum. For fans of Rancid, NOFX and The Exploited.
Husker Du [Savage Young Du (4LP)]

Please note: New street date is January 12 (for LP) / December 15 (for CD) (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.
OCS (Thee Oh Sees) [Memory Of A Cut Off Head (2LP)]

Please note: New street date is December 1. It is easy to forget (especially amidst the ringing of ears and aching of muscles after a typical Oh Sees show) that initially, OCS was a rather hushed affair. After the minimalistic brutality of Coachwhips, the band was the diametric opposite corner of John Dwyer’s musical world, quiet to the point of whispered in the wind, buffeted by the airy whirr of singing saw, soft and strange. Those early records especially had a rather contraband hush about them, as if the party had gone on all night and continued into the morning and everyone’s raspy from talking too much and agrees to whisper and pantomime as they watch the sun come up over the hills. Since then of course, things got gradually louder, faster, crazier...the band evolved into the Oh Sees everyone knows. For the 20th Oh Sees release, 100th Castle Face title, and 20th year doing it, Dwyer re-examines the quieter roots of it all in particularly baroque and homesteadly fashion. Memory Of A Cut Off Head was co-written with longtime collaborator and vocal counterpoint Brigid Dawson, recorded in total in Dwyer’s own Stu Stu Studio, and it’s lush, sumptuous in texture, but satisfyingly retains the gentle grace of the early stuff. There’s beautifully executed strings throughout, courtesy of Heather Lockie’s fine arrangements, horn arrangements courtesy of Mikal Cronin, and they even brought back the old saw—Patrick Mullins, that is—on saw and electronics. A return and a refinement of old forms, a few solemn meditations on life lived at high velocity, perhaps a respite from it…a softer side of JPD and distinguished company.
Pete International Airport [Safer With the Wolves (2LP/Peter Holmstrom of Dandy Warhols)]

November 17 street date. Peter Holmström named his solo project Pete International Airport after a song by his other band The Dandy Warhols. Safer With The Wolves…’ is a meticulously crafted psyche rock journey into the dark heart of electronica on which Peter has enlisted the help of numerous like-minded musical allies. One of which, if you’re to believe a certain infamous rock documentary called Dig! is an unexpected union; Anton Newcombe is releas-ing ‘Safer With The Wolves…’ on his own record label A Recordings. The albums’ 11 tracks feature a variety of guest singers and collaborators including Robert Levon Been (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club), Alex Maas (Black Angels), Lisa Elle (Dark Horses), Jason Sebastian Russo (Hopewell, Mercury Rev), Jsun Atoms (The Upside Down, Daydream Machine), Emil Nikolaisen (Sereena-Maneesh) and Jeremy Sherrer (The Dandy Warhols, Modest Mouse, The Shins).
Prurient [Rainbow Mirror (4CD/Ltd)]

December 1 street date. “Rainbow Mirror”, the latest work from renowned noise-music artist PRURIENT, is a work comprised of 15 new time-stretching PRURIENT tracks that explores the more glacial and meditative side of Dominick Fernow’s exploration of noise and power electronics. With a total running time of almost three-and-a-half hours, “Rainbow Mirror” will be released as a 4xCD box-edition set (1000 units) through Profound Lore on Nov 17th. The 7xLP vinyl edition and digital versions will be released by Hospital Productions to coincide with the 20 year Hospital Productions Anniversary show in Brooklyn, NY on Nov 5th at Warsaw. “Rainbow Mirror”, while not necessarily the direct follow-up to the landmark “Frozen Niagara Falls” milestone, marks the second conspiracy between Profound Lore and PRURIENT and stands as another singular landmark amongst the vast repertoire Fernow has amassed under the PRURIENT moniker. While familiar moments from “Frozen Niagara Falls” can be found within the massive scope of “Rainbow Mirror”, through the three-plus hour duration of this ambient noise marathon, “Rainbow Mirror” is a monolithic crawling cinematic noisescape that conjures the atmosphere of old-school PRURIENT noise histrionics while bringing in even more dynamics and structure through this very expansive and introspective new observation. The intense, unforgiving, trance-inducing aura of “Rainbow Mirror” is presented through waves of time-stretching electronics, layered counterpoint feedback, loops, and extended droning pulsating synth passages. The 4th disc is a 3” CD which features two bonus tracks exclusive to the CD version.
Quicksand [Interiors]

November 10 street date. QUICKSAND emerged from the New York City hardcore scene in the late 80’s and featured members of Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today and Bold and Beyond. They released their now legendary debut album Slip in 1992, and toured the world. This album would bring the band critical acclaim and would go on to influence the music of such artists as At The Drive-In and Thursday. The band split in 1995 after a second album and members went on to form other bands such as Handsome and Rival Schools. They reunited in 2012 for a special one-night performance which has lead to a string of sold out tour dates across the globe. Interiors is the band’s first studio album in 22 years and the anticipation is building. The fans of Quicksand are loyal and patient and this one was worth the wait. Produced by Will Yip ( Balance and Composure, Circa Survive, Title Fight). For fans of Rival Schools, Thursday, At The Drive-In, Deftones and Rise Against.
Real McKenzies [Clash Of The Tartans (20th Anniversary Remaster)]

November 17 street date. Sudden Death Records is happy to announce the 20th anniversary re-release of The Real McKenzies’ Clash of the Tartans. Newly remastered, this album launched one of the most entertaining and hard working bands on the planet. Led by legendary front man Paul McKenzie, these kilt-wearin’ madmen cement mix-up punk with Scottish traditional music—in fact, some critics credit them for inventing this now-popular hybrid. This album is the band’s finest effort to date: once the needle hits the groove it’s a non-stop party where scotch and ale are rapidly guzzled. From the rousing opening track “Stone Of Kings” to the wild “Thistle Boy,” they combine power and some of the catchiest hooks this side of Glasgow. The third track is the now classic “Mainland,” and from there the album rages on with stirring anthems like “Will Ye Be Proud” and “To The Battle.” There’s also a ripping version of “Auld Lang Syne.” Robbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire, would heartily endorse this slab of vinyl!
Shimizu, Yasuaki [Music For Commercials]

November 17 street date (date change). Originally issued in 1987, Yasuaki Shimizu wrote and recorded this brilliant and inventive collection of short pieces, initially conceived for Japanese TV commercials. This album has achieved near-mythical status in the last few years, which have seen artists such as Oneohtrix Point Never sing its praise. It should be noted that Yasuaki is the man responsible for the wonderful record Utakata No Hibi under the name Mariah from 1983, and reissued in 2015.
Shimizu, Yasuaki [Kakashi]

December 1 street date (date change). 1982 album from Japan's visionary saxophonist Yasuaki Shimizu, the man behind Mariah 'Utakata Ho Hibi’ (PFL005). Through its 8 suite-like tracks, Kakashi transports the listener into Yasuaki's colorful sound-world, a fusion of outre jazz, new wave, ambient, and dub practices. Another high water mark in the 80s Japanese underground which has gathered cult status in recent years, and considered to be a highlight of Yasuaki's solo career.
Staples, Mavis [If All I Was Was Black]

November 17 street date. MAVIS STAPLES is an American Music legend. She was at the forefront of the civil rights movement in the 1960’s, as singer for the legendary gospel group, The Staples Singers. Mavis, along with her father, Pops, and siblings marched and worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr on the fight for equality in this country. In December 2016, Mavis went to Washington, DC to receive the coveted Kennedy Center Honors from President Obama, with whom she has had a long standing friendship. Mavis invited Wilco frontman and dear friend, Jeff Tweedy as her guest for the weekend’s festivities. The two spent hours discussing the current events and how today’s fight for equality is very similar to those in the 60’s. Inspired by these events, Mavis and Jeff got together and wrote Mavis’ new album, If All I Was Was Black, produced by Jeff Tweedy. The new album is a perfect message for our time and is by far Mavis’ best work to date. “Mavis has done it all and worked with just about everybody from Bob Dylan to Prince to Jeff Tweedy… She still is singing for justice and equality and influencing a new generation of musicians and fans.” -PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
Sweet [Sensational Sweet (9CD) Chapter One: The Wild Bunch: Brian Connolly Years]

Swingin' Utters [Drowning in the Sea, Rising With the Sun]

Dec. 8 street date. In celebration of SWINGIN' UTTERS' three decades as a band, as well as their continued forward momentum, we'’re proud to announce "Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun", a 33-song best-of compilation that serves as a testament to the band's’ peerless punk rock attack.This double LP/single CD collects songs that represent the band’s history. There are live staples, fan favorites, and even a few tracks that never work their way into the band's live show. Touching on every era of SWINGIN' UTTERS - from 1992's "Scared" to their 1995 debut album "The Streets of San Francisco", all the way up to 2014's "Fistful of Hollow" - this collection is a testament to a band that never tried to fit into anyone else's box. For fans, it's a celebration of one of the Bay Area’s longest standing creative forces. And for the uninitiated, it offers a cohesive rundown on a band that is impossible to sum up. Stay tuned for much more from one of FAT's longest running bands, with new material on the way, and tons of touring planned throughout 2018!
Tharpe, Sister Rosetta [Live In 1960]

December 15 street date. Black vinyl version. Remastered at Infrasonic Mastering, Pressed at Pallas. Sister Rosetta Tharpe was Nominated for 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction! Sister Rosetta Tharpe was the first great recording star of gospel music and among the first gospel musicians to appeal to rhythm-and-blues and rock-and-roll audiences, later being referred to as “the original soul sister” and “the godmother of rock and roll”. This live recording from 1960 had never been on vinyl, until now, a whole 57 years later. The set has plenty of variety, lots of sincere feeling, and high levels of musicianship from the unique performer. Highlights include “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands,” “Didn’t It Rain,” “The Gospel Train” and “Down By the Riverside.” The album was remastered for vinyl from analog tape and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.
V/A [Listen People: the Graham Gouldman songbook 1964-2005]

December 1 street date. • Ace’s Songwriter Series continues to pay tribute to the most eminent tunesmiths of the 20th Century. This month we bring you our salute to one of the UK’s highest profile singer-songwriters, with more than 50 years of hits under his belt – Graham Gouldman. “Listen People” offers an overview of almost half a century of great British songwriting, from Graham’s early 60s songs for his own first group the Mockingbirds, to his 21st century collaborations with Kirsty MacColl and McFly. Just about all of Graham’s best-known songs are included, many of them performed by singers and groups with whom he has long been associated such as the Hollies, Herman’s Hermits, the Yardbirds and both Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders. As is the norm with our Songwriter Series, all-time hits and unfairly obscure classics sit comfortably together for your listening pleasure. Graham’s songs have been interpreted by artists as diverse as Larry Williams & Johnny Watson, Rush, Cher, 10cc and Morrissey – all of whom are also featured.
V/A [To the Outside Of Everything (5CD) Story of UK post-punk 1977-81]

Dec. 8 street date. "Post-Punk" was a belated term adopted to describe the creative outpouring of largely independent music which flourished in the wake of the Punk explosion. Named after a lyric from Magazine's classic, "Shot By Both Sides", "To The Outside Of Eveything" tells a musical story of how the UK's post-punk scene evolved from the spirit of 1977 and the arrival of key labels such as Fast, Rough Trade, Zoo, Factory and Cherry Red. The 5 CD box includes landmark singles by Joy Division, PiL, Wire, Gang Of Four, The Slits, Killing Joke, Echo And The Bunnymen, Scritti Politti, The Pop Group, Human League, The Fall, Tubeway Army, Josef K, The Teardrop Explodes, Throbbing Gristle, The Psychedelic Furs, Theatre Of Hate, The Birthday Party, Fire Engines, and Ultravox (as well as many wonderful obscurities). The package also boasts a lengthy essay and band-by-band histories by ex-NME journalist Neil Taylor within a lavishly illustrated 48-page booklet.
Voodoo Glow Skulls [The Band Geek Mafia]

December 8 street date. Band Geek Mafia is fan favorite from VOODOO GLOW SKULLS. Originally released in 1998. This album is soon to be 20 years old, and still as fun and irreverent as the day it was released.
Waters, Muddy [Electric Mud (gatefold sleeve & poster)]

November 24 street date. Third Man Records is proud to announce the reissue of Muddy Waters' fifth studio album Electric Mud, which comes as a continuation of Third Man's partnership with Universal Music Group and the Estate of Muddy Waters. The album, which Chess originally released in 1968 has not seen a legitimate domestic vinyl release since 2002, despite its enormous influence on generations of blues rockers. It features members of Rotary Connection as Muddy's backing band and was very controversial upon its release for its fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements. The album is now recognized as a forward-thinking classic, sampled extensively by artists like The Black Keys and Gorillaz. The standard reissue will be available everywhere via Third Man Records on November 17th, with a limited edition, deluxe version available at Third Man Records’ Nashville and Detroit storefronts as well as Reckless Records in Chicago while supplies last. The limited edition version of the reissue will come on "Chess-nut Brown" vinyl, with a hand screen-printed black matte jacket with silver type (a recreation of the rare, first pressing variant), a 2-panel foldout poster, and a reproduction of the original "eight pager" booklet. The standard edition will come on black vinyl, with a gatefold vinyl jacket in its original black-on-white color scheme, and a four-panel foldout poster.
