Deluxe edition of their album 20/20 Vision featuring new artwork and 5 new songs. Anti-Flag is a political punk band, which is obvious from their name alone. But over the course of 12 albums across more than 25 years together, they’ve rarely set their sights on singular individuals in songs. Unlike their punk predecessors in the 80s, who made targets of Reagan and his cronies, Anti-Flag has always opted not to date their work with current references, instead focusing on fighting ongoing oppression and dismantling deeply rooted systems of injustice. But on their new album, 20/20 Vision, the band drew a big, fat line in the sand.
Pressed on translucent Red vinyl.

The music of Brainiac ended with the death of frontman Tim Taylor in 1997. Offered here is a glimpse into the working mind of Taylor as he susses out tunes and sound experiments in their rawest form, mostly alone with a four track in his mother's attic. Some are mere sketches. Many never again saw the light of day, or morphed so much they are more like distant cousins of future songs. Some of the more interesting Brainiac songs, like Fucking With The Altimeter, Silver Iodine, or Strung, were elevated from the original four and eight track demos later in the studio environment. Attic Tapes serves as a blueprint for how these types of tunes developed. The entire program is stitched together like a distorted dream. Jumping from one scene to the next, it progresses through all four sides in a historically linear fashion, from the very early days through to the final rehearsals.
While this is not an official Brainiac album, it begins to feel akin to what a Brainiac record might sound like if it were produced by neighbor and Guided by Voices raconteur Robert Pollard. Inside the release are some historically related liner notes written by guitarist John Schmersal giving further insight into the origins and backdrop of the demos and the time they were created.

Two of Louisiana’s most well-known and respected artists, Boosie Badazz and C-Murder, combined forces to deliver a one-of-a-kind release with Penitentiary Chances. The project is a strong reading from the streets with Boosie and C-Murder telling real-life street stories as only they can. Both had always wanted to work together, and being incarcerated in Angola they had time to put their heads together and come up with the project. This double clear vinyl release marks the first time Penitentiary Chances is pressed on vinyl.

The Deluxe Edition for Village of the Damned presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time, a far more complete presentation then the 1995 Original Soundtrack which was not only truncated, but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film. The set does however include the track, “Midwich Shuffle,” a fun number which was created specifically for the 1995 soundtrack despite never actually appearing in the film. Interest in John Carpenter's original film scores has never been higher, and his collaboration with Dave Davies of the Kinks is a one of a kind moment in cinematic music history. The album includes an all new original art direction with new notes and classic film stills and comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl.

In 2005, DEVO's Gerald V. Casale released the notorious Jihad Jerry & The Evildoers album as a limited edition CD from Cordless Recordings.

COMPLETE 1978 LIVE CONCERT RECORDING - FIRST TIME ON VINYL
The two-time Edison-Award winning blues band from the Netherlands, Barrelhouse, will release their complete live recording with Albert Collins as part of RSD Drops 2021.
The year is 1978 and Barrelhouse invited Albert Collins to join them for a TV show. At the time he was not as well known in Europe as he would later become. It became his first appearance on national TV outside of the United States. He returned to the Netherlands later that year for a short tour and the recording of this live album. “Albert Collins and his manager Dick Shurman arrived on the airport, he brought a flightcase with his Fender Telecaster, a packet of spare strings and a suitcase. On stage he was a star, off stage he was one of the band, wanted to travel in the Barrelhouse 9 seater.”
This RSD Drops release on 180g Translucent Red/Solid White/Black vinyl contains an extra, never-pressed-to-vinyl, track “Things I Used To Do”, which completes the concert by Collins and Barrelhouse on December 28, 1978.
A1 Frosty (Live) A2 Honey Hush (Live) A3 I've Got a Mind to Travel (Live) A4 Don't Lose Your Cool (Live) A5 Things I Used to Do (Live)

At The Village Gate is a live album by jazz guitarist Larry Coryell, the “Godfather of Fusion”, recorded on January 21 and 22, 1971 at the Village Gate in New York City. It was released by Vanguard Records. Sadly, far too few people knew of this album at the time as its distribution was limited, but it’s a record that was recorded so well it could easily be considered a live studio release, and one that never fails to open eyes or expand horizons. It’s interesting to note that Larry’s wife Julie sings for the first time on this outing and that’s his son featured on the album jacket.

'...all of these songs are based on post-Marcusian cliches sophisticated enough to get the average rock fan thinking hard, and some of them are based on post-Marcusian ideas sophisticated enough to get the average post-Marcusian thinking hard. Sounds unmusical but it isn't that either--the singing is clever and impassioned, the punkish, futuristic reggae-synthesizer fusion often catchy and always apt.' - Robert Christgau

Original Grooves showcases the vinyl cutting technique known as "parallel grooves”, where grooves are cut side-by-side instead of one after another, allowing for a different aural experience depending on where the needle is dropped. The second of this series comes from Ella Fitzgerald. This 12" Single LP features live versions of Mack the Knife and Summertime from the legendary 1960 Berlin performance, with the 1962 “Lost Berlin Tapes” versions “hidden” on the neighboring grooves.

When Jeffrey Dean Foster watched the Black Lives Matter protests following George Floyd’s murder last summer, he wanted to address the cruelty that prompted them. The result was “I’m Starting to Bleed,” a pastiche of late-period Bowie and “Cruisin’”-era Smokey Robinson infused with a creeping sense of dread. The remixed, reimagined “I’m Starting to Bleed (Pastoral)” strips the song back to its studs, trading the original instrumentation for guitars orchestrated by 1970s Film Stock. “When Was the Last Time” was recorded as a bare-bones acoustic performance at The Ramkat in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Don Dixon suggested making a record out of it, noting that Johnny Cash magicked some of his TV appearances into album tracks. Dixon and Foster’s additions of drums, bass, electric guitar and strings, Beth McKee’s Wurlitzer, and Marti Jones’ pristine backing vocals turned it into a panoramic pop song. “Tell Somebody” is a wall of sound full of sonic nods to The Who, Big Star, and Teenage Fanclub at their Bandwagonesque best. “Headin’ Home” is a tossed-off ode to pandemic isolation, like the Flamin’ Groovies reluctantly following a stay-at-home-order. Dixon and Mitch Easter pulled the mixes together, while Dave McNair (Bowie, Dylan, Patti Smith) mastered the record. The I’m Starting to Bleed EP probably couldn’t have been made outside of the disorienting cauldron of the past year. Foster is currently working on his next full-length album.
Proceeds from this release, and three others in this series support The Shalom Project (an organization that supports NC families in need).
This is a regional release and though it’s available to all RSD-participating stores, it will primarily be available at stores in North Carolina.
Side 1: 1) “I'm Starting To Bleed”
Side 2: 1) “When Was The Last Time” 2) “Tell Somebody” 3) “Headin' Home” 4) “I'm Starting To Bleed (pastoral)”
Side B: “In A Minor Key”, “It Must Be Raining Somewhere”, “Un Autre Temps”, “Come Home To Me”, “There's A Dream Around The Corner”, “Cerulean Is Lovely”
