New Arrivals for November 18th

Fugazi - First Demo (Dischord)

In early 1988 and after only 10 shows, Fugazi decided to go into Inner Ear Studio to see what their music sounded like on tape. Despite the fact that they had been playing together for nearly a year, it was still early days for the band. Guy had only been a member of Fugazi for a few months and only sang lead on one song. It would be nearly another year before he would start playing guitar with the band. The sessions only lasted a couple of days, but tour dates and indecision about the tape would delay the final mix for another two months. In the spring, Fugazi went out on its first US tour and a few weeks after returning from the road they went back to record what would become their debut Dischord release, the self-titled 7-song 12 inch EP. The only song from the demo session that was formally released was "In Defense of Humans" which appeared on the State of the Union compilation in 1989.

TV on the Radio - Seeds (Harvest)

Happy Idiot ignites a hearty introduction to Seeds, catapulting out of the gate with an earnestly frenetic beat over a sweet sweet chorus of resignation. One thing that remains a constant with TV on the Radio is that there is no constant, and one curveball trounces another on Seeds. Seeds was recorded at Federal Prism in Los Angeles and produced by guitarist David Andrew Sitek.

Ty Segall - $ingle$ 2 (Drag City)

$ingle$ 2 slinks low and flat-out sprints behind the scenes of the Goodbye Bread-Twins-Sleeper trilogy, collecting all the now-out-of-print sides that totally work amazingly well together when placed back-to-back-to-back as an album. The super-deadly "Spiders" single is spun again here in full, as well as the epically pop B-sides for "I Can't Feel It," "The Hill," and "Would You Be My Love," plus tracks for other righteous labels, like Permanent, Castleface and Famous Class, and covers of The Groundhogs, the Velvets and GG Allin! Sure, there's the knotting up of all the loose ends for the heavy-breathin', AADin' freak-fans - but $ingle$ 2 is really about the rush of getting a single for the A-side and then finding a total sunshine jewel on the flip.

Wilco - Alpha Mike Foxtrot (Nonesuch)

Wilco - Whats Your Twenty? (Nonesuch)

Two new Wilco collections in conjunction with the Chicago band's 20th anniversary. The first, Alpha Mike Foxtrot, is a 4CD/4LP box-set of rare studio and live recordings collected from the band's extensive audio archives. The second, What's Your 20, is a 2CD compilation of essential tracks culled from the band's previously released studio recordings. "Like a lot of fans, I had collected these straggling tracks over the past two decades of following Wilco's every move," Pawelski said. "Alpha Mike Foxtrot includes almost every unique, essential performance that appeared on soundtracks, tribute albums and B-sides-and there are probably a few surprises for even the sharpest collector. This set presents an alternate history of the band, kind of a sideways view, and ultimately, it's a super-fun listening experience."

Manchester Orchestra - Hope (Loma Vista)

Atlanta-based hard rock quintet Manchester Orchestra is thrilled to announced the release of HOPE, a startling re-imagination of COPE, their most recent album, issued earlier this year. Searching for the sonic direction of what would become their fourth full-length album, the hard-hitting COPE, earlier this year; Manchester Orchestra discovered something pretty amazing. The unapologetically heavy anthems seemed to work just as well (or even better) when stripped to their essence. 'We were noticing that all the beautiful, slow stuff was working with all the really loud and fast stuff,' said lead vocalist, Andy Hull. 'The seed was planted to go back and create a full circle of an album.'

Ariel Pink - Pom Pom (4AD)

Across its 17 tracks and 69 minutes, pom pom is unfiltered Ariel Pink, featuring infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O. The record sees the Los Angeles native strike it out alone, returning to the solo moniker he has adopted for well over a decade. (Delayed by weather, this should be here tomorrow!)

Bryan Ferry - Avonmore (BMG)

Bryan's 14th solo album features 8 new compositions plus his cinematic interpretation of Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. Produced by Ferry and Rhett Davies in Ferry's London studio, the album was mixed by Craig Silvey and features performances by many of Ferry's long-term musical partners including Nile Rodgers, Johnny Marr and Marcus Miller. Highlights include the singles 'Loop De Li' and 'Soldier of Fortune' (co-written by Johnny Marr) plus closing track 'Johnny & Mary', Ferry's recent collaboration with Norwegian producer and DJ Todd Terje.

Thompson - Family (Fantasy)

Teddy Thompson, together with parents Richard and Linda, brother Jack, younger sister Kami, her husband James Walbourne, and nephew Zak Hobbs collectively dubbed Thompson will release a collaborative album of all new original songs entitled Family (Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group). The album's deluxe Edition features the beautifully rendered 15-minute film 'Thompson: The Making of Family' on DVD. Utilizing interviews, studio footage and vintage family photos, the film captures the warmth, intelligence and humor of this supremely talented family as they record together for the very first time.

VA - The Art of McCartney (Arctic Poppy)

Brogan Bentley - The Snake (Leaving)

Young producer Brogan Bentley returns with his debut LP, The Snake. Its 12 compositions writhe, slink, and crawl through the dark and hazy fog-scape of Bentley's native San Francisco in the Year of the Snake. According to the producer, "The Snake is a sonic documentation of coming into new skin, living in it and shedding it."

Crying - Get Olde (Second Wind)

Crying would not be possible without the power of nostalgia. The New York-based band is a blend of all things old-school: they mix an understated 90's emo influence, the spirit of punk in their original vision, and, most notably, the prominent use of a Gameboy programmed into their songs.

VA - Language Lessons (Third Man)

Language Lessons: Volume I box set includes a hardbound book of contemporary poetry and prose, two vinyl LPs of jazz, psychedelic-punk, poetry, blues and pop, and 5 pieces of hangable art all housed in a hard-case clothbound sleeve. In 321 pages, the book includes over 20 award winning and / or nominated contemporary poets and authors such as Dale Ray Phillips, a Pulitzer Prize nominee in fiction, CD Wright, a National Book Award finalist in poetry, and Adrian Matejka, a National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist in poetry.
