Arcadia [LP]

New Vinyl: $23.98 Add to Cart

Video

Imagine the mind’s farthest wanderings made physical, formed into worlds that represent our internal and external expressions. Mythologically speaking, people have been naming this duality for ages: utopia and dystopia, heaven and earth, Olympus and the underworld. Now imagine this concept distilled in an eleven track, thirty-six minute album, and you arrive at Arcadia, the latest offering by songstress Lily Kershaw. Weaving warmer analog sounds like organ, harpsichord and guitar with cinematic force, Arcadia is Kershaw’s most intimate release to date. But the strongest tool Kershaw wields is her voice, both in the simmering ferocity it carries and the poetry it speaks. Though the concept behind the record is epic to say the least, Kershaw is ultimately telling a story of acceptance, both of herself and the great mystery that is the universe

Jackson 5

The original release of the Jackson 5's Greatest Hits LP in 1971 was cause for celebration, as it encapsulated an extraordinary 18-month strings of back-to-back-to-back-back-etc. hits and was itself a hit souvenir of Jacksonmania. It featured eight smash records, led by the group s phenomenal Motown debut, 'I Want You Back,' plus two immensely popular B-sides 'I Found That Girl' and 'Who's Lovin' You' and something new: 'Sugar Daddy,' a just-dropped single which went top 10 pop and no. 3 R&B; it was then not available on any other J5 LP. This LP reissue is something new again: it features the rare quadrophonic mixes, originally released in Japan only in 1975. These mixes used alternate vocals and sometimes emphasized instrumentation not heard in the J5 singles or LP and as a result these versions are much sought-after. As within this edition these mixes are the stereo folds, consumers do *not need a special decoder or four speakers to enjoy the music.

The Clash

When The Clash's third studio album 'London Calling' was released in the winter of 1979, it was clear that the band had made an instant classic, an era-defining masterpiece that stands as one of rock's all-time greatest albums. The album is a hugely compelling melting pot of musical styles, driven by a passion for action and a fierce desire for social justice, with lyrics which remain completely relevant. This limited edition 120-page, hardback scrapbook contains rarely seen content from the bands personal archives, including handwritten lyrics, Ray Lowry drawings, fanzines, original press cuttings and band images.

Willie Nelson
There would be no Austin City Limits were it not for Willie Nelson. He started it all in 1974, performing on the original pilot episode, and has been a large part of ACL history ever since. He’s appeared on more programs than any single artist, but this particular show (recorded on September 6, 1990) captures him and the family band at their best. It’s all here, all the Willie classics, his signature songs and fan favorites. His trusty guitar, “Trigger,” and that voice, that unique phrasing, that makes Willie Nelson one of the world’s most original singers, whether he’s wailing the blues, honky tonkin,’ crooning pop standards or rockin’ the house. Everybody knows the story: the boy from Abbott, Texas who grew up playing music with his sister Bobbie, who moved to Nashville to stake his claim, but after years of writing classic songs for other artists (“Crazy,” ”Night Life,” “Funny How Time Slips Away”), got tired of playing the game and moved back to Texas. He chose Austin as his new home, and nothing has been the same ever since. This performance shows Willie at the top of his game. Back then he truly was and still is the “King of Country.” - Terry Lickona (producer Austin City Limits®)

Caracara

Caracara's Summer Megalith made waves when it was originally released in the fall of 2017. Emerging from Philadelphia's burgeoning network of artists used to playing shows in basements, Caracara's sound was already too big for the rooms it was being played in. Early adopters at Pitchfork & Stereogum compared the album's ambitions to artists like Bon Iver & Wolf Parade, while understanding that the band's roots in the DIY, hardcore-adjacent Philly scene made more intense acts like Pianos Become The Teeth and Deafheaven just as likely influences. Summer Megalith has been remastered and will see it's first ever vinyl release this fall on Memory Music. Caracara's first release with the label & Summer Megalith follow-up EP Better was released this spring.
