"Blue" Gene Tyranny: Out of the Blue

First-ever LP reissue. "Blue" Gene Tyranny's debut album Out of the Blue - newly remastered with original cover art - which was among the first to releases on Lovely Music in 1978 alongside Robert Ashley Private Parts, David Behrman On the Other Ocean, Jon Hassell Vernal Equinox, Meredith Monk Key, and Peter Gordon Star Jaws. Disarmingly direct, funky, and profound, Out of the Blue is an equanimous, wide-open exploration of Tyranny's musical world: equal parts song cycle, tone poem, keyboard fantasia, and avant-garde pop record. Recorded and mixed by Tyranny at Mills College, this album emerged following the legendary 1976 Trust in Rock concerts, where Tyranny and collaborator Peter Gordon presented New Music for rock band. "Next Time Might Be Your Time" and "For David K." were co-produced by Gordon, and also feature Mills's Maggi Payne on flute as well as Oingo Boingo’s Steve Bartek on guitar; “Leading a Double Life” is sung by Lynne Morrow and Jane Sharp, accompanied by Tyranny on piano and polyMoog synthesizer; "A Letter from Home" is a half-hour electro-acoustic narrative meditation on "the Doppler effect as a metaphor for the development of consciousness." Out of the Blue lives up to its name: it is both surprising and familiar, revealing for the first time something that was always already there.

Anatolian Weapons feat. Seirios Savvaidis: To The Mother Of Gods

Anatolian Weapons, the project of Aggelos Baltas (Dream Weapons, Fantastikoi Hxoi), makes its Beats In Space Records debut with To The Mother Of Gods. A hypnotic journey through the psychedelic folk music of Seirios Savvaidis, To The Mother Of Gods testifies that music, through repetition and drone, can take us outside ourselves to a liminal space beyond thought and rationality. LP comes with high-quality digital download.

Crumb: Jinx

Crumb is the collaboration of Brooklyn-based musicians Lila Ramani (guitar, vocals), Brian Aronow (synth, keys, sax), Jesse Brotter (bass), and Jonathan Gilad (drums). The friends came together in 2016 with the goal of developing and recording a collection of songs Ramani had written in high school and college, the work ultimately resulting in the band's first two EPs, 2016's "Crumb" and 2017's "Locket." Encouraged by the warm reception online and at shows, the band evolved into a full time touring and recording project.

In June 2019, Crumb will release Jinx, their first full-length album and best distillation to date of their singular blend of psych-rock and jazz. On Jinx, Ramani continues to helm the songwriting, with Aronow, Brotter, and Gilad each bringing distinctive ideas to match her ethereal, intimate vocals and luminous guitar lines. Informed by two years of nearly non-stop touring, the songs sweep and swell to capture the beguiling live spirit of Crumb shows, while taking listeners one step further down the band’s dizzying, hypnotic path.

Duster: Stratosphere

Best listened to from inside the womb, Duster's 1998's debut Stratosphere simultaneously capped off and reinvented the slow core's first wave. A four track dreamscape that will wake the neighbors and then lull them back to sleep. Hazy, arpeggiated guitars layer over a deliberate drummer with no real place to be, as semi-inaudible vocals warn of millennial malaise and subtly encourage the listener to "rock out, rock out, rock out, rock out."

Duster: Contemporary Movement

A muffled cry into the technological darkness, Contemporary Movement slid into the world right as the MP3 was seeping out of college dorms. A 39-minute drift into the void, drenched in Cold War-era reverb and then submerged in four track hiss for good measure. Duster constructed a Brutalist masterpiece on the outskirts of a suburban mall, as if to say, "We were here."

Mike Adams At His Honest Weight: There Is No Feeling Better

**NOTE - Colored Vinyl pictured is fictional! It is JUST the cover artwork!**

There Is No Feeling Better, the fourth album from Bloomington, Indiana's Mike Adams at His Honest Weight finds the titular Adams-the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer at the center of the independent pop institution-focused less on who he is and more on where he is. Though the album's not short on truthful introspection, it's an outward gaze that defines these eleven songs. It's the kind of record you can make only after really knowing how to make records. It's ambitious, but never labored sounding, sweeping but always intimate.

Pulling from disparate sources, like retro-pop era Starflyer 59, ELO, the Beach Boys at their most transcendental, the Southern gospel of the Isaacs, and the dead-serious humor of The Roches, Adams has shaped these touchstones into a new world. The sock hop mysticism of "Free & Reduced," the noir mood of "That’s One Way," the lush cooing of "Educated Guess," the daydream pop of "Olivia"-you can live in songs like these. They're testaments to the act of creation and recreation, examinations of the glee that can be accessed by ripping up the map and getting lost.

SadGirl: WATER

With their new album Water, Los Angeles trio SadGirl taps into the romantic and nostalgic spirit of their native city while exuding a time-tested authenticity suggesting they've had a peek behind the curtain of the glitzy boulevards and relentless sunshine. It's a collection of breezy pop songs captured with the timbre of old-time recording techniques. Songs like "Little Queenie" touch upon the yesteryear reverberations and longing of a Ken Boothe ballad. Similarly, a tormented love song like "Miss Me" transports the listener back to slow dances at a previous generation's sock hop, only to be subverted by a chorus of "miss me with that bullshit." It's as if guitarist/vocalist Misha Lindes, drummer David Ruiz, and bassist Dakota Peterson want to conjure an idealized past only to remind us of innocence lost.
