Sic Alps – Long Way Around After the recording of their debut album, Pleasures and Treasures in 2005, Sic Alps stripped it down to become the duo of Matthew Hartman and Mike Donovan. Their hazy, vintage psych/garage rock sound along with heavy touring of both the U.S. and Europe won them fans around the globe. They recorded a handful of singles and EPs during 2006 and 2007 which are now pretty much impossible to find, or fetching absurd prices on eBay. All of these singles (along with a rare compilation track, and one previously unreleased track) are included here in this convenient, remastered 26-track compilation.

The Cave Singers – Welcome Joy
Pissed Jeans – King of Jeans
Jack Penate – Everything is New
David Daniell and Douglas McCombs – Sycamore is the first album from the duo of David Daniell (San Agustin, Rhys Chatham) and Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Eleventh Dream Day, Pullman). The album was recorded by Jeremy Lemos (Semaphore Recordings) and mixed with John McEntire at SOMA Studios. Sycamore is a delicate tapestry of spacious and ethereal guitar lines woven into abstract, slow-burning and multi-layered textural improvisations. The sounds blend and overlap to create richly faceted and thickly psychedelic passages, unveiling new layers of detail with each and every listen.


Brendan Benson – My Old Familiar Friend
Eric Copeland – Alien in a Garbage Dump With Alien In A Garbage Dump, Brooklyn’s Eric Copeland emerges from his underground bunker, having sifted through the constant stimulation found everywhere in this 21st Century, discovering connections within our united co-existence while avoiding the prejudices we are relentlessly force-fed from the powers that be. The result is a coll-ection of songs at once uniquely urban but still strangely universal in language. Fifteen years strong in the game and somehow it’s easier to see where his music is going as opposed to where it’s been.
Final – Reading All the Right Signals Wrong Justin Broadrick has always made music which could one day serve as a soundtrack to the end of the world, should we ever need one. Whether with Godflesh or Jesu — themes of urban decay, corporate greed and post-modern malaise often set the bleak tone. Final, his longest running project, is no different. Formed in 1982, it has often run parallel to his more recognizable work and served as an undefinable and more experimental outlet. The CD version of “Reading All The Right Signals Wrong” includes four bonus tracks not on the LP and runs 79 minutes in length.
