COLOR LP: S&M2, the live set from Metallica & The San Francisco Symphony is the concert event of the year! S&M2 features 20 songs (over 2.5 hours of music) from the two-night event that opened San Francisco’s new Chase Center, with many Metallica fan favorites and 2 unique classical songs chosen by San Francisco Symphony Musical Director Michael Tilson Thomas. S&M2 has newly re-mixed and remastered audio for a whole new sound from the original theatrical run in October 2019. Four marbled orange LPs with a 16-page 12x12 booklet featuring photos by Anton Cobijn. Download card included. Exclusive to independent retail and Metallica.com.

Metallica and San Francisco Symphony’s September 6 & 8, 2019 S&M2 concerts were historic on multiple levels: They served as the grand opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center, reunited the band and Symphony for the first time since the 1999 performances captured on the Grammy-winning S&M album, and featured the first-ever symphonic renditions of songs written and released since those original S&M shows.

The sold out shows were rapturously received by the 40,000 fans who traveled from nearly 70 countries, as well as the media: Rolling Stone raved “the group proved that anything was possible,” Variety noted an atmosphere “buzzing with excitement,” while the Mercury News witnessed "a concert that fans will be talking about for decades to come,” and Consequence of Sound hailed "a true celebration of Metallica and their musical prowess.”

J. Cole - 2014 Forest Hills Drive

Regular price $ 34.00

"With his third album, the North Carolina rapper J. Cole is certain he’s made his classic; he’ll tell you as much partway through the 15-minute credit roll “Note to Self”. In its quest to canonize, the record eschews both singles and guests: It’s a bold move, and where it floats, it soars, but it flops gloriously when it doesn’t."

Jamila Woods - Legacy! Legacy!

Jamila Woods - Legacy! Legacy!

Regular price $ 26.00
/
Jamila Woods has a voice and lyrical sensibility that transcends generations, and so it makes sense to have this lush and layered album that bounces seamlessly from one sonic aesthetic to another. This was the case on 2016's Heavn, which found Woods hopeful and exploratory, looking along the edges resilience and exhaustion for some measures of joy. Her new album, Legacy! Legacy! Is the logical conclusion to that looking. From the airy boom-bap of "Giovanni" to the psychedelic flourishes of "Sonia," the instrument which ties the musical threads together is the ability of Woods to find her pockets in the waves of instrumentation, stretching syllables and vowels over the harmony of noise until each puzzle piece has a home. The whimsical and malleable nature of sonic delights also grants a path for collaborators to flourish: the sparkling flows of Nitty Scott on "Sonia" and Saba on "Basquiat," or the bloom of Nico Segal's horns on "Baldwin." More than just giving the song titles the names of historical black and brown icons of literature, art, and music, Jamila Woods builds a sonic and lyrical monument to the various modes of how these icons tried to push beyond the margins a country had assigned to them.

Leon Bridges - Coming Home

Leon Bridges - Coming Home

Regular price $ 26.00

Vinyl LP pressing. Highly anticipated 2015 debut album from Fort Worth, TX native Leon Bridges. Coming Home was produced by Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of White Denim. Bridges began writing and performing 1950s and '60s style soul music that was described by Austin 360 as "a transmission straight from the heart." He began to attract followers and his break in the music industry is attributed to a run in he had at a bar with White Denim guitarist Austin Jenkins. The duo discussed clothing at the bar and a few weeks later Jenkins and bandmate Joshua Block ran into Bridges during a performance in north Texas. It was the performance of his original song "Coming Home" that caught the attention of Block and Jenkins. This debut includes that track and nine other originals.

Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release, the fourth album from country music singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves. Kacey describes this album as having a "trippy" twist, citing the Bee Gees, Sade, and Neil Young as influences. In addition to reuniting with previous collaborators such as Luke Laird, Shane McAnally, and Natalie Hemby, Musgraves sought out pals Ian Fitchuk and the Silver Seas' Daniel Tashian as her primary co-producers and co-writers. Musgraves wrote and recorded most of the songs from the album throughout 2017; about the writing process she said: "I have a lot more love songs this time around, and I've never been one to write a love song and really feel it,". She continued: "That probably sounds like the most depressing thing ever. [But] I'm coming off getting married and being in this golden hour of my personal life, where all these things are finally coming to fruition. I found myself inspired to write about this person and all these things he brought out in me that weren't there before".

Music of Many Colours is a joint album between Roy Ayers and Fela Kuti, recorded after a three week tour of Nigeria's major cities in 1979, during which Ayers performed as the opening act for Fela's band. The two artists decided to record the album as a round-up to the tour. Ayers describes the experience saying, "I met Fela Kuti in Nigeria in 1979, and we fell into a great relationship, good personal and music vibes, and we recorded that album together. Fela also came to USA in the eighties and we performed at NYC's Madison Square Garden. Amazingly energetic, Fela Kuti had a very original concept that was called Afro Beat - a genre with a very unique identity and exceptional music. One of Fela Kuti's most impressive qualities was that he was undeniably a brilliant show man, as a musician and as a huge dancer as well. His African concept was truly original... The tour was about two black men together coming together, one from Africa and other from USA, a very exciting collaboration."

Billie Eilish - When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go?

Regular price $ 28.00
/
"Her rise has been striking: At 14, she put the song “Ocean Eyes” on SoundCloud, a glassy, straightforward ballad with tearful synths and woozy, Lana Del Rey-indebted crooning. She snared a young fanbase with her hooks and raised her middle finger to pop’s status quo; here was this music that shifted between genres—from pop to trap and EDM—made by a lawless young female singer sporting baggy, androgynous clothes. She cast her bored, listless eyes upward instead of batting them at the camera. She filled her videos with flowing black tears, plunging needles, and arachnid hors d’oeuvres instead of twirling around sleek cityscapes. Eilish’s creepy eccentricity feels so removed from the pop formula; it helps distance her from the music industry’s historically lewd maceration of teen idols. Eilish just seems sharper, meaner, more self-sufficient—a young star from Los Angeles, in the grand tradition, but one that could only have come along while its hills are burning."

In November 1984, Paul Bellini rented a beatbox and started jamming in his basement with guitarist Rob Rowatt, bass player Gord Disley, and fellow York University alumni Scott Thompson. Their early recording sessions produced dozens of experimental songs with challenging lyrics and Mouth Congress was born.

Two years later, The Kids in the Hall’s Bruce McCulloch asked Mouth Congress to open for him at the Rivoli – a club where The Kids in the Hall performed regularly. Utilizing Brian Hiltz’s existing band I Want, they performed a memorable set and several months later decided to record a 7-song cassette entitled For People Only. The sessions occurred just five days before Thompson moved to New York City to begin writing the first season of The Kids in the Hall.

The band never got around to releasing the cassette in any official manner, but now, 32 years later, 3 tracks from For People Only are being made available for the first time by Captured Tracks. “Tactile”, Mouth Congress’s signature tune, is an ode to the sense of touch and a reminder that human contact is still our greatest pleasure. “Gonna Be A Man” is a love/hate song about masculinity.

Penderecki/Don Cherry & The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra - Actions - RSDAUG20

Penderecki/Don Cherry & The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra - Actions - RSDAUG20

Regular price $ 32.00

Recorded live at the Donaueschingen Music Festival on October 17, 1971, Actions features a truly mind-bending confluence of musicians of the avant-garde, in the broadest sense of the term. Don Cherry -- the brilliant American free jazz trumpeter -- had recently expatriated to Sweden and was finding his way not only among the emerging free-jazz scene of Europe but also within his own constantly expanding musical palette that had begun to incorporate elements of African rhythms, Turkish folk idioms, and Indian classical music. Cherry, in collaboration here with Krzysztof Penderecki -- one of Poland's greatest modern composers, who is perhaps best known to casual audiences for the use of his music in The Exorcist (1973), The Shining (1980), and more recently, the third season of David Lynch's Twin Peaks -- creates a sonic landscape previously unrivaled in his work. Combining modern classical and avant-garde elements, choral arrangements, and a large free jazz ensemble -- The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra, formed specifically for this performance and featuring a veritable who's who of the European scene including Peter Brötzmann, Han Bennink, Terje Rypdal, Albert Mangelsdorff, and Gunter Hampel -- Actions is one of the most expansive sets of Cherry's storied career. Limited edition of 1,000 copies on translucent red vinyl.

Vinyl LP pressing. Reissue. 19 is the debut studio album by singer/songwriter Adele, originally released in 2008. Following Adele's graduation from the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in May 2006, she began publishing songs and recorded a three-song demo for a class project and gave it to a friend. The friend posted the demo on Myspace, where it became very successful and led to interest from XL Recordings. This led to Adele signing a recording contract with the label and providing vocals for Jack Peñate, during this session for Peñate's song she met producer Jim Abbiss, who would go on to produce the majority of her debut album. Adele wrote most of the album's material solely, but did work with a select few writers and producers including Jim Abbiss, Eg White and Sacha Skarbek.

Black Fire! New Spirits! - Radical & Revolutionary Jazz In The USA 1957-82

Regular price $ 44.00

This double-disc set is the companion soundtrack to Soul Jazz's book of the same name. It documents 14 wide-ranging tracks by well-known foundational artists and those who followed the New Thing path to other realms during a fertile period during and after the Civil Rights Era. Soul Jazz has always done an admirable job both in curation and presentation. Here, the feel is less consciously outside and more global and spacious. Among the many highlights is the inclusion of Yusef Lateef's "Chang, Chang, Chang" from 1957's fantastic Before Dawn. It's a beautiful and poetic place to begin Dr. Lateef's journey from the very beginning; Dr. Lateef sought to combine the music of the East with modern sounds. Don Cherry's "Utopia and Visions," from 1973, is another excellent pick because of its complete integration of post-'60s modal and improvisational jazz with global traditions. Likewise, Grachan Moncur III's collaboration with the Jazz Composer's Orchestra seamlessly melds Latin and South African jazz to Nigerian highlife. "In the Moog" by Harold McKinney & the Creative Profile off Detroit's Tribe Records in 1974 is deeply funky, an all too brief insight into how Detroit was not only crossing musical boundaries and integrating various traditions, but was also completely unique in doing so. And speaking of funk, the inclusion of Richard Davis' "Dealin'," from his 1974 Muse album of the same name, is stellar. Archie Shepp and Jeanne Lee's "Blasé" melds everything from modal blues to moaning gospel. Lloyd McNeill and Marshall Hawkins' "The Banjo Lesson" is an exercise in chamber meets folk meets spiritual jazz. It's haunting, spare, and beautiful. The swinging pan-African post-bop of the Creative Arts Ensemble -- with Kaeef Ruzadun on piano, Gary Bias on saxophone, George Bohannon on trombone, and Henry Franklin on bass, is on full display in "Flashback of Time" from 1981. The big surprise here is the inclusion of Tyrone Washington's fantastic "Universal Spiritual Revolt," which is a joyous groove revolution with the saxophonist playing several instruments accompanied by Rene McLean, Idris Muhammad, and Hubert Eaves III, among others. Even Doug Hammond's texturally and harmonically brilliant "Spaces and Things," which is the most outside thing here, follows along rhythmic lines -- albeit labyrinthine ones. While this set is more for the newcomer than the seasoned collector, it is a hell of a mix and can be thoroughly enjoyed with or without the book.
