I realize it is churlish to complain about this, but why in the world did 12th Isle not do a double LP and include ALL the tracks?

Indeed, darklands. They are shipping me my copy as I type this. My subwoofer and I are very excited.

Yes, a little bird just tweeted the same thing in my ear. Very pleased about it.

My fault for poor wording. Boomkat does not charge $35 for shipping. It would cost $35 total. The complaint is that if there is no US distribution partner for the release, those of us Stateside have to suffer (1) the exchange rate (pound and euro are ... See full review

Hi JCB91,
I know Boomkat will happily ship to the US, but do they have a stateside distribution partner? Because if not, we in the USA will have to pay $35. Copies of the black vinyl (white sold out) up for sale all over the UK and Europe, but nothing ... See full review

Someone please tell me there's going to be US distribution for this. Paying $35 for it to ship from Boomkat is not a happy circumstance.

IMO, every bit as good as the Huerco S tape on Quiet Time, and probably XYR's best to date. A serious tropical meditation with pulsating synth bass that propels the track from start to finish and carries you the distance. Got it on repeat.

Why in the hootenanny does ECM not release stuff on vinyl for that matter? I would FREAK OUT if I could get Extended Play on vinyl. Agree: this album is a MONSTER. That Billy Killson drum solo in Juggler's Parade makes me lose my mind every time I ... See full review

To be fair, all of this stuff is ultimately a total rip-off of Eno who ripped off lord-knows-who. Just enjoy it.

It's a winner. I loved me some Pole and (early) Deadbeat back in the day. This strikes me as an evolution and improvement on that sound.

Uhhhhh, you can just go to Third Man Records, the label distributing it, and order it for $30. These price gougers ought to be banned from the marketplace.

Repress out in USA in April 2018 according to at least one vendor.

Probably the EP title and song titles. They reference Deleuze. Which is gross. But I do love Don't DJ.

Anyone have word on when the repress will be released through a vendor/distributor in the United States?
posted a comment on Don't DJ - Authentic Exoticism. 8 months ago
Forced Exposure says a repress is coming its way as well. So, not only can shysters, to use the American sobriquet, take a walk, there is in addition no need for North American residents to pay import shipping. Unless of course you cannot wait for US ... See full review

For US buyers, Forced Exposure still has some. Many and big shall the tears be when the stock runneth dry. Tarry not, dear friends. 😀

If you love Endtroducing, then their whole damn discography is required. I am not trying to belittle Rehash by comparing them to DJ Shadow of the Endtroducing era. I'm just telling you that if you have often felt disappointed that there is not more ... See full review

Sheesh. Let's get a repress of this out, already.
posted a comment on Villalobos* - Alcachofa. about 1 year ago
It is utterly absurd that no label has stepped up to reissue Alcachofa on vinyl that includes Y.G.H., What You Say, and Fool's Garden. 4x12 would be fine by me. Make it happen.

Agree. I hear more depth in the second release. That does not make the first chopped liver, but I like the second LP more.

How is it that we only get four cuts? This is some of the most beastly jazz-fusion-funk I have ever heard. Be aware that these are 45rpm platters. The sound quality is beyond reproach. About 28 minutes total or 7 minutes per side. Hopefully the ... See full review

posted a comment on Gramm - (Personal_Rock). about 1 year ago
I would say that Personal Rock is much closer in spirit to the seminal Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records. Personal Rock is not as kick drum driven as the Farben releases. You can literally hear LFJR being birthed here. Personal Rock deserves a reissue every ... See full review

Not to mention the price tag that necessarily follows such a format. Sheesh.

About time. I had emailed Mr. Jelinek through Faitiche a couple of years ago and he told me he had plans to reissue the vinyl. Salivating, grip sweats, etc.

Just now coming back to this. Yes, I goofed in my first post. What I meant to say is that currently it looks that there are two separate artist listings for Dept of Edu and that they should be combined so that the Barrio Outreach and Fuel Efficiency ... See full review

Release should be added / merged with the other Dept of Edu release, no?

My sense is that this is private press only. It's not going to get any formal distribution. Discogs or bust. For those that already own the Cuban Studies/Fuel Efficiency 7", the private press market value on Barrio Outreach is looking, well, painful.

A wonderful reissue. If you slept on the original ~cape releases, snatch one of these up. Not a weak track on any of these early deadbeat lps. And man, I don't know about others, but I have an Audiotechnica LP 120 (pre USB model) I run through a Bose ... See full review

In fairness to Rose, while not dismissing your point, "plagiarism" in folk and the blues was traditionally a given and quite rampant. Consider basically ALL of Dylan's early folk stuff. Reinterpretation of others songs is pretty standard. It is ... See full review
