            Beatnik Brilliance? Beat-sploitation? Beats me! Before Sesame Street or Yo Gabba Gabba made art for kids that their parents understood on a whole other level, there were Hip Fables. Pop prose originally put to pulp by the pen of Steve Allen circa the ‘50s, which inspired a popular album and even a book titled Hip Fables (Simon & Schuster). The original recording featured Steve Allen on the piano accompanied by King Cool himself, Chicago DJ and Impulse! recording artist Al Jazzbeaux Collins! In...

                                  A heady and adventurous experience with ever-shifting elements of jazz, fuzz guitar, blues rock and psychedelia! Graffiti’s origins can be traced back to 1967 and the dissolution of The Hangmen, a popular Washington DC area garage rock act well noted for the proto-punk stylings of their singles “What A Girl Can’t Do” and “Faces.” Singer Tony Taylor, a late addition to the band’s lineup, recruited guitarist George Strunz to the group and soon announced the band would pursue a more psychedelic...

                                    One voice, one guitar, one tranquilized trip! Isaacson’s voice is rich and warm, with hints of weary and optimism. His delivery, reminiscent of Gordon Lightfoot or Cat Stevens, holds steady against the backdrop of his textured and restrained guitar playing. An interpreter of sound, his takes on these familiar originals are introspective, well thought variations that he truly makes his own. Fresh from the attic of the acid archives, this first ever reissue of this ‘71 gem features unissued...

                                      90s French pop nirvana, on LP for the first time! Autour de Lucie’s follow-up to their geographical barrier busting debut sees the band incorporating subtle keyboards and electronic beats to their well-established sensuous dreamy pop charm. “Autour De Lucie’s self-titled debut album was a strong collection of French-language rock-pop, but their follow-up, “Immobile,” is nothing short of exquisite. Vocalist Valerie Leuillot’s angelic vocals cover a greater range this time around, and musically...

Gorgeous and luxuriously...
