The Stark Reality / Acting,Thinking,Feeling -6LP+45s Box Set / Now Again

Now Againが送る一大リイシュー・プロジェクト。ボストンのさるテレビ局の音楽を担当するべく結成されたグループですがサウンドの方はおよそ一般向きでは ないトリップしまくりのクレイジーなファンク・サウンド!ヘヴィなファズ・ギター、エフェクト全開のヴァイブ、ソリッドなファンク・ビートを刻むリズム・ セクション、とサウンド的にはMPS時代のデイヴ・パイクをよりワイルドにした感じ。マッドリブのプロダクションに時折顔をのぞかせるヘヴィな部分と相通 じるところがあります。そんな彼らの録音を集大成した大ボリュームのボックス・セット。


1. 6 LP set of psychedelic jazz, restored and remastered from the original
2. Contains the entire Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop, the
1969 album and a bonus album of previously unreleased tracks.
3. Booklet with never before seen photos; extensive liner notes and
annotation; an interview with Monty Stark.

“The music of the Stark Reality is as playful as it is wild… as fantastic
as it is frazzled.”-Rolling Stone

-“One of the most prized ‘funk’ artifacts of all time, Stark’s project
allies Hendrix-stoned guitars, heavily-fuzzed vibraphone and Bitches
Brew rhythms…”-Mojo Magazine

Earlier this year, we announced we were preparing to present the
complete works of psychedelic jazz ensemble Stark Reality’s complete
works as a box set. Well, we’re happy to announce that both the 6LP and
3CD versions of this anthology – which we’re calling Acting, Thinking,
Feeling – are now in production.

This marks the first time that all of Stark Reality’s music will be available
on vinyl and CD. Included will be the entirety of their AJP-issued album
The Stark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop, their out-
of-print 1969 (first issued on this label in 2003), the two sides of their
Big Yellow 7″ single, the three part song “Acting, Thinking, Feeling”
and a series of unreleased tracks discovered by Porter Records’ Luke
Mosling – issued here for the first time!

While we have yet to set a street date (we’re hoping for late 2012 or
early 2013), our loyal Now-Again Deluxe subscribers will be able to
feast their ears on this band’s impossible to categorize, yet undeniable
sound – restored and remastered from brand new master tape transfers
in two installments, starting on October 30th.

Lady / Lady / Truth & Soul

Truth & Soulよりデビューする二人組レディ・ソウル。既にジャイルズ・ピーターソンのミックスなどに取り上げられて人気過熱中。初のフル・アルバムです。3月初旬に入荷予定




All you have to do is listen to Lady once, and you’ll remember—in
case you forgot—why they call it soul music. The honesty, the
aching sweetness, the raw power of these singers and their songs
will remind you that nothing can move you as much, or touch you
as deeply, as two women with amazing voices singing in tight

Lady is the new collaborative project by Terri Walker and Nicole
Wray. This unexpected transatlantic pairing was born out of a
shared love of soul music and the resulting album – also entitled
Lady – is a modern day interpretation of the classic sounds
pioneered by labels such as Stax, Atlantic, and Motown.

Lady unites the mellowness and pop flair of 60s soul with the
driving beat of hip-hop, and the silky rhythms of modern R&B.
These two powerful voices harmonize to create a fresh sound that
tells the stories of growing up and never giving up, of love and
friendship, of yearning and losing, bad girls and good hearts.

The lead single Money offers an overdue female perspective on
the gold digger dynamic and has been accumulating plays and
plaudits since emerging online. Other highlights include the self-
assured strut of Get Ready, the dramatic, piano-driven Karma,
Walker and Wray’s tender tribute to their mothers in Sweet Lady
and the heart-racing raunch of Good Lovin’. Lady’s vocals switch
smoothly from solos to seamless harmonies and are underpinned
throughout by Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman’s luscious production.
Better know as Truth & Soul, Michels & Silverman write, produce
and run a Brooklyn-based studio and label with a growing reputation.
The multi-talented duo’s credits include writing for Adele, production
for Lee Fields & The Expressions and both writing and production on
Aloe Blacc’s Good Things album and its worldwide hit single,
I Need A Dollar.

Lady is an authentic original, drawing from the past to infuse the
present with new power. Prepare to take your hat off to Lady. Get
ready to fall in love. There has never been, there will never be,
anything else like it.
