Need something hype to tickle your arsch? Check out “Upwards Spiral” from Hammered Satin, taken from the band’s forthcoming album. The video was nicely directed by Ant Boyd and it is a beaut. Make it shine.
Audio Fidelity are wrapping up 2015 in a major way after releasing a number of quality discs throughout the year. These two hybrid SACD’s will be out on December 11th, just in time for the holiday season and they couldn’t be any more different from one another but then again, there are a few similarities.
First off: they are for Alice Cooper’s great 1973 album Muscle Of Love and Judy Collins’ 1972 album Colors Of The Day. A part of the SACD will feature each album newly remastered and for you quadraphonic heads, the quad mixes are being remastered as well for the first time. To make things more interesting, the packaging of the Cooper SACD even simulates the oily/greasy box of the original album cover. However, it is not a 100% reconstruction of the cardboard box cover, just the imagery printed on the sleeve but it’s a nice idea nonetheless.
Colors Of The Day was a compilation album and featured all of the hits she had up until that point, including her biggest hit, “Both Sides Now”. This may be the best way you’ve ever heard these songs, so pick it up, pick both of them up, or get them as gifts. It’s a must.
Both remasters can be pre-ordered below from Amazon.com by clicking the covers below.
Even though he is primarily known for one hit song, the influence of Marc Bolan is still evident in many of today’s pop and rock artists. Bolan, through his band T. Rex, will have his music reissued by Fat Possum on vinyl, CD, and as MP3’s.
The first album in this reissue series to be released will be The Slider. The CD and MP3’s will be released next week (October 26th), while the vinyl will be out on November 23rd. The vinyl and CD can be pre-ordered directly from Fat Possum, while the MP3’s will be available next week through your favorite MP3 merchants, including Amazon.com.
