Brainiac

Attic Tapes (Rsd) [Colored Vinyl] [Record Store Day] [RSD Drops 2021]

Vinyl: $34.98 Buy

June Limited Run

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.

Gruntruck

Push [RSD Drops 2021]

2 x LP: $44.99 Buy

June Exclusive

Another grunge metal classic! Gruntruck's bloodlines were impeccable; the band was founded (where else?) in Seattle by two members of the pioneering grunge band Skin Yard, vocalist Ben McMillan and drummer Norman Scott. While in Skin Yard, Scott also briefly joined Soundgarden, and collaborated with Chris Cornell on a lesser-known band, the low frequency power trio Bass Truck. Lead guitarist Tommy Niemeyer from metal thrashers The Accüsed and bassist Tim Paul, previously of PDX hardcore punks Final Warning, rounded out the initial, classic line-up, which is what you hear on this 1992 record, which was produced by the band and fellow ex-Skin Yard member (and go-to grunge producer) Jack Endino. Previously released on vinyl only in Europe and Brazil (!), original copies of Push are virtually impossible to find, which is too bad; this record offered a mesmerizing mix of atonal riffage and hooky tunes like the single "Tribe." This is its first-ever domestic vinyl release, and we're giving it a real "Push"; we've added two never-on-LP tracks ("Crucifunkin'" and "Flesh Fever") that the band recorded in between the sessions for Push and their first album, Inside Yours, and expanded the release to a killer 2-LP set (sequenced by Jack Endino himself) housed inside a gatefold jacket. Clear with opaque red and yellow swirl vinyl, limited to 2500 copies, exclusive for RSD Drops 2021.

June Limited Run

Created in 2010 by Marlon Magnée and Sacha Got, two young men from Biarritz in France, La Femme is a very unique band. Between psychedelia, surf rock, electronica, krautrock and even disco they have managed to create their own very recognizable sound and have become one of the most influential French indie bands of the century. After two Gold records in France, several sold-out US tours and glowing support from the likes of The New Yorker, KCRW, NPR, Flaunt, The Guardian, Q, Uncut, Paste and many more, La Femme will be releasing their third album in the Spring. And for RSD Drops, they would like to please their fans by releasing two unreleased tracks on vinyl.

“Runway” / “Me Suive”

Daniel Lanois

Heavy Sun (Rsd) [Colored Vinyl] [Record Store Day] [RSD Drops 2021]

Vinyl: $29.99 Buy

June - RSD First

Heavy Sun, the soulful, debut from Daniel Lanois and his invigorating new all-star band. Recorded in Los Angeles and Toronto, the album fuses classic gospel and modern electronics, mixing gritty, human textures with crisp, digital accents and lush, swirling atmospherics to create a sound that's at once warmly familiar and boldly unexpected. The arrangements here are spacious and dreamy, anchored by rich, righteous organ topped with airy falsetto and mesmerizing four-part harmony, and the writing is buoyant and soulful to match, tapping into the shared uncertainty of the human condition to offer hope, comfort, and connection at a time when all three run in desperately short supply. For RSD Drops this year comes the vinyl debut of this critically acclaimed album. Pressed on Translucent Ruby inside Opaque Orchid colored vinyl, and limited to a worldwide run of 4000.  Includes a download card.

The album, W H O K I L L, marks a time when everything came together into one cohesive whole, recorded in a studio and influenced heavily by Merrill Garbus’ moving to Oakland, California. She and Nate Brenner made an album that delivered on her early promise. Lyrically, Garbus explores constructs of femininity and sexuality with the threat of violence that lurks on the streets where she now lives, while the energy of their show has been translated perfectly to record.

Demoitis Vol.1 [RSD Drops 2021]

Vinyl: $21.99 Buy

June Limited Run

Sometimes the demo recording of a song has a vibe that cannot be duplicated. Whether that first recording is a voice memo on your phone or half haphazardly recorded with one mic in the room, there’s an undeniable charm to these recordings. If you spend some time listening to them, when the “real” recording is made, many times one has a hard time letting go of the demo. The medical term for this is called “Demoitis”. On that note, Big Crown Records is proud to present Demoitis Vol. 1, a release that is easily a decade in the making.

The songwriting process can be cathartic, especially if you're trying to make sense of things in your life through the music. Lady Wray wrote and recorded the demo version of “Guilty” just days after her brother was incarcerated. The rawness of what she was going through will surely send a chill through the listener’s soul.

Some of these demos were recorded to pitch the music to the label or producer. Bobby Oroza’s “This Love” demo (originally called “Breaktru”) is him at home with an MPC, recording music to show to the guys at Timmion in hopes of working together. Brainstory’s version of “Breathe” also falls into this category. There are cases where someone writes a song for an artist and actually sings it as a reference for them to learn the tune. “Will I Get Off Easy” & “Regenerate” were both originally sung by Leon Michels for Lee Fields to learn and record them later. Of course no one can hold a candle to Mr Lee Fields’ vocals, but the El Michels versions of these are killers in their own right. Again, this is what this record is about, not better or worse, but enjoying all the steps in the process.

Paul Schalda from Paul & The Tall Trees sent us the demos to his sophomore album and they blew us away. When he got in the studio to make the record there was a strong sentiment of sticking close to the demos and trying to recapture that intimacy. On the other side of that coin some of these are a testament to the production. Liam Bailey’s “Don’t Blame NY” demo is something of a loose freestyle that comes across as a Jazz number. It is always interesting to see what twists and turns a song takes from inception to the finished version.

We hope you enjoy Demotis Vol. 1 as much as we do. It is a pleasure to share this stuff with the world. It is a great listen and we hope it inspires people to write and record more music with whatever means you have of doing so.

And while eleven CDs might be a bit much to commit to wax, we've come up with the next-best thing: a double LP distillation of the best rare and unreleased tracks on the box set! Dek'd features two dozen tracks divided into four thematically-organized sides, including a side of unreleased uptempo band recordings, another side of collaborations with such folks as Chris Cacavas of Green on Red, Richard Lloyd of Television, Barbara Manning, Steve's wife Linda Pitmon, and the Fleshtones, another side of unreleased home demos, and a whole side of unreleased outtakes and demos from Wynn's classic My Midnight album. Linda Pitmon pens disarmingly personal notes inside a gorgeous gatefold package. Double LP clear pink vinyl pressing limited to 1600 copies worldwide!
