Killer work from Nino Ferrer – maybe his most soulful album ever, and one that’s filled with loads of hard-jamming funky cuts! Nino got his start in the beat sound of the 60s – but here, he’s working with arrangements by Bernard Estardy, ones that have a trippy jazz approach […]
Featuring the propulsive Gentlemen Take Polaroids and the atmospheric, Satie-esque Nightporter, the album is widely considered as the one which consolidated Japan’s unique approach and sound.
2LP and 3LP versions available. Jazz fans take note: Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album more than lives up to its name. It features previously unreleased recordings by the late, great John Coltrane and his regular accompanying players (pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and Drummer Elvin Jones). The […]
Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales Of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside The Spookshow International served as Rob Zombie’s debut solo album after his massively successful tenure with White Zombie. A realization of his vision of the dark side – a mix of classic horror films and sleazy pop culture, creativity and extremity – […]
The year after the release of his triple platinum 1998 solo debut, Hellbilly Deluxe, Rob Zombie put out the remix version, American Made Music to Strip By, thus inventing roxploitation (with a saucy smile and a cheerfully candid photo of his wife Sheri on the front) and sating his fans […]
This is the Stones where it all started, playing the music they loved so much – Blues, R&B and even Country. Every track has been revolutionary restored via ‘Audio Source Separation’ and you will be able to hear the remarkable difference this makes to each song.

“Oh hey, it’s brothers in electronic arms Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross teaming up again to soundtrack Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s The Vietnam War. While the musical details are scarce, the amount of music isn’t – this OST features 90 minutes of new material from the pair, an undertaking […]
More polished than Day for Night, but by no means overproduced. Trouble at the Henhouse dances back and forth between quiet but still interesting tracks like “Flamenco” and loud bangers like “Gift Shop”, delivering an album that can be listened cover-to-cover unlike many other alternative rock bands of this era.
The Tragically Hip, one of Canada’s musical merrymakers, are also praised for their raw, sweaty live performances. Frontman Gordon Downie is a real dynamo, lyrically and physically, and his bandmates only support the beautiful live chaos. With that aside, the Hip treated fans with their first ever live album, Live […]
On the Tragically Hip’s fifth album, Day for Night, the band continues to churn with the same rock & roll fervor found on 1993’s enigmatic Fully Completely. Gordon Downie’s signature lyrical mysteries are just as lush, but much more dark-spirited. And that’s the intent, for he’s looking for a listener […]
Reissued for the first time since 1997 on Universal Music! In 1997, Canadian rockers The Tea Party released their fourth studio LP Transmission, which went on to reach double platinum status in the country, hit No. 3 on the Canadian charts and earn the band a Juno nomination.
A 15-track collection of tracks from one of the bands that helped create and thrive within the lounge/tango music genre. If you own any good chill out compilations, Gotan Project will no doubt be included and stand out above most other groups. Ya Basta!
Considered by many to be their “magnum opus”, Live Through This, Hole’s second studio album following Pretty On the Inside, was met with much critical acclaim. Critics praised Love’s crooning as she sings of life’s pressures, and her own personal challenges. Many of her lyrics cover deeply rooted emotions, spanning […]
