The Prettiest Curse [LP]

New Vinyl: $26.98 Add to Cart

Video

Each time they take the stage, Madrid-bred rock band Hinds create a kind of wild magic, a feel-good free-for-all often complete with synchronized dancing and giddy crowd-surfing from the members themselves. While the band s first two albums channeled the euphoric energy of their live show in their gorgeously punchy take on garage-rock, their latest full-length adds entirely new texture to their sound. Produced by Jenn Decilveo (The Wombats, Ben Platt and Anne-Marie), The Prettiest Curse finds the band letting their imaginations run more freely than ever, even as they share some of their most emotionally heavy material to date. The Prettiest Curse takes its title from the sometimes-daunting experience of giving your soul to rock-and-roll. In the making of The Prettiest Curse, Hinds devised a brilliantly unpredictable vocabulary for communicating their most painful feelings. Unfolding in frenetic guitar riffs and buzzing basslines, powerful drumming and delicate piano work, the album endlessly delivers massively catchy melodies and vocals that growl and sigh with equal ferocity. The effect of all that unrestrained expression is fantastically dizzying, made even more so by Hinds constant back-and-forth between their native tongue and English.

Junta [3LP]

New Vinyl: $45.99 Add to Cart

Junta (pronounced Joon-tah - the "oo's" sound like "book") is Phish's first official studio album now slated for re-release on audiophile vinyl. Junta was recorded at Euphoria Sound Studios in Revere Massachusetts in 1987 and 1988 on 16-track 2" tape and was mixed to 1/4" stereo reels. In addition to writing and performing all the music, the band produced the album themselves - gathering around Enginner Gordon Hookailo's console to do group fades since the studio lacked mix automation. It was a ground-breaking effort in terms of musical ambition and every song on the album is still performed by the band live. Junta was originally self-released on cassette tape in May 1989 with packaging created by the band. The album was re-mastered and re-released as a double CD (and cassette) in October 1992 on Elektra with art by Jim Pollock. The release was certified Gold but, until now, has never been heard on vinyl. The vinyl release was created from the original stereo master reels with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.
