This release celebrates Zappa’s iconic, Gold‐certified album, which landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart. Frank Zappa for President? You betcha!

This album is comprised of unreleased compositions realized on the Synclavier, along with other relevant tracks mined from the Vault, with a political thread tying it all together.

NONPOINT – THE POISON RED

NONPOINT – THE POISON...

The unconquerable spirit of NONPOINT charges up the energy in any environment, from the studio to the stage. The stamina, resilience, diversity, massive power and undeniable authenticity of the enduring Active Rock crew makes them kindred spirits to their audience: fans who call upon the band’s tried-and-true anthems to help conquer adversity in their own lives. The Poison Red, the veteran rock band’s driving and ambitious ninth album, offers further testament to what makes Nonpoint such a tough act for other bands to follow on the radio dial, onstage at major festivals like Rock On The Range or Australia’s Soundwave, and in any club blessed with one of the band’s sweaty, crowd moving, exhaustion-proof performances. From their earliest ultra DIY releases, through the trio of major label albums, to their more recent work for the world’s most important indies, the energy and determination remains consistent.

MICHAEL KIWANUKA – LOVE & HATE

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

MICHAEL KIWANUKA – LOVE ...

Love & Hate was recorded in LA and London, and produced by Grammy Award winner Brian Joseph Burton AKA Danger Mouse, and young British producer, Inflo. Love & Hate is a fascinatingly assured and resonant body of work, and follows Michael’s acclaimed 2012 debut LP, Home Again. Having introduced himself and that voice to the world in 2011 with the raw soul of Tell Me A Tale, Love & Hate is a record that sounds as though it has been unearthed from a long forgotten studio canister in the seventies, but is permeated with a timelessness that defies any artist of any specific era. If the ‘death of the album’ is still an ongoing conversation, Michael Kiwanuka’s new record is a startling, emphatic response to its enduring importance. Where Home Again provoked comparisons to the likes of Bill Withers and Otis Redding, Michael’s new album struts to a much more psychedelic, freeform beat. Its opening number, the peerless ...
