Vinyl Pressing: Holden Laurence – Floating, Drifting

Cleveland indie artist Holden Laurence released his new six song EP, Floating, Drifting, on October 1, 2021. Floating, Drifting examines the dissonance between the white-washed American Dream and the reality of modern life in the US. Holden meditates on mortality, emotional and political manipulation through social media, family heirlooms of hatred and prejudice, and the impending consequences of our actions on humanity and the environment.

Vinyl Pressing: Healing Together

Healing Together is a benefit compilation for mental health recovery featuring 23 ambient-electronic artists from around the world.

Recognizing that music is a bridge to normalizing conversations about the challenges people are going through, each artist was prompted to create a song that would help someone with mental health struggles know they’re not alone. This sprouted into a collection of ambient music holding space for the many emotional landscapes we experience as humans.

Healing Together features new compositions specially prepared for the compilation from the incredible line-up of women artists Nailah Hunter, Penelope Trappes, Clarice Jensen, Drum & Lace, Sofie Birch, Hollie Kenniff, Clariloops, more eaze, Ami Dang, Karen Vogt, Patricia Wolf, Zoe Polanski, Sachi Kobayashi, Christina Giannone, Ai Yamamoto, Cat Tyson Hughes, IKSRE, Inquiri, Belly Full of Stars, Claire Deak, Pechblende, Caminuata and marine eyes.

This is the 3rd benefit compilation from Past Inside The Present and the first to be released on vinyl. Cynthia Bernard (marine eyes) curated, sequenced, and provided album art for the compilation marking her first project with PITP since joining the team in Spring.

Vinyl Pressing: Marty Robbins – Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs

Marty Robbins Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs LP

Real Gone Music is proud to present the original mono version of what most folks consider to be the single greatest postwar album of Western music, Marty Robbins’ 1959 record Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs. Everything about this album is iconic, from its ‘quick draw’ cover art to the songs it contains ‘Big Iron,’ ‘Cool Water,’ ‘The Master’s Call,’ ‘Billy the Kid,’ ‘The Strawberry Roan,’ and, of course, ‘El Paso’ (here in its rare, full-length version)’ that have come to define the Western genre. The music has never sounded better than it does here: this clear with black ‘gunsmoke’ swirl pressing was remastered from the original tapes by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York with lacquers cut by Clint Holley and Dave Polster at Well Made Music. Comes complete with the amazing original album art, too’a classic album now even more collectible than before!

Vinyl Pressing: Brian Straw – Baby Stars/Dead Languages

Brian Straw - Baby Stars.Dead Languages - Pre-Sale | Indiegogo

Ahead of a string of performances bookending the US, Cleveland-based (and GGR employee) troubadour Brian Straw releases “Silent Partner.” The single is a bonus track from Straw’s debut full-length album, Baby Stars/Dead Languages, which was released in January to praise by new listeners, long-time fans, and critics alike.

A song about missed chances and making up for lost time, Straw wrote “Silent Partner” when he quit drinking and struggled to find himself. “This is a song of transition and the journey to becoming who I am. Moving away from pain and learning to embrace the now is a theme,” he says. “The range of emotions I was juggling is on display. Heartache and hope intertwine.” It also pays homage to one of his favorite artists. “‘At 42 I’m remembering what to do / gauge my worth to Earle’s Transcendental Blues’ is a nod to Steve Earle and my goals as a songwriter.”

STREAM BABY STARS/DEAD LANGUAGES. The album is also available on limited edition double vinylWATCH “OUT OF DOORS”.

Vinyl Pressing: The Ventures – NASA 25th Anniversary Album

25th Anniversary NASA Album by The Ventures is available for preorder.

The Ventures are an American instrumental rock band, formed in 1958 in Tacoma, Washington, by Don Wilson and Bob Bogle. The band, a quartet for most of its existence, helped to popularize the electric guitar in the United States and across the world during the 1960s. The classic lineup of the band consisted of Wilson (rhythm guitar), Bogle (initially lead guitar, switched to bass), Nokie Edwards(initially bass, switched to lead guitar), and Mel Taylor (drums). The Ventures enjoyed their greatest popularity and success in the US and Japan in the 1960s, but they continue to perform and record. With over 110 million albums sold worldwide, the group remains the best selling instrumental rock group of all time.

The Ventures NASA’s 25th Anniversary Commemorative Album was the official album of the L5 Society promoting Space Development and features many legendary themes used in films such as Star Wars, Close Encounters, Startrek, etc.

Available from Renaissance Records!

Vinyl Pressing: Lost Souls – Self Titled

Lost Souls - Self Titled Vinyl

The Lost Souls never released any records, yet the meager recorded evidence that survives indicates that they were one of the finest unknown American groups of the mid-’60s, able to write both catchy British Invasion-type rockers and, in their latter days, experimental psychedelic pieces with unusual tempo changes and song structures. The band were also unusual in their occasional embellishment of the typical period guitar-bass-drums lineup with flute, sax, and mandolin. Although popular in their Cleveland hometown, they broke up in 1968 to attend college. Rhythm guitarist Denny Carleton, who wrote and sang some of their best material, went on to briefly join The Choir, their chief (and more successful) rivals.” —Richie Unterberger

The music scene in Cleveland in the mid to late 1960’s was ripe with talent: the James Gang with Joe Walsh and Glenn Schwartz, The Choir, Eric Carmen (pre-Raspberries), Glass Harp with Phil Keaggy, the Damnation of Adam Blessing… and the Lost Souls. Of all those bands, only the Lost Souls never released a record. Then again, they were in high school, trying to navigate dress codes and bullies—and playing in front of a couple thousand fans when not suspended. Sure, they lost a battle of the bands at Teen Fair 1968, but it was to the James Gang with Joe Walsh. And somehow it is the Lost Souls who emerge from that time and place with the greatest mystique and some of the most adventurous music, music which few have heard. Lost Souls main songwriter Denny Carleton released a cassette of the band’s original recordings in 1984. It received airplay on hundreds of college and public radio stations in the USA (and around the world), and garnered glowing reviews… and that was it, until now.

Not only is this the first time the music of the Lost Souls has been available since that cassette, our Lion Productions edition is the first release for many additional Lost Souls cuts, including alternate versions of key tracks like the insightful ‘Things That Are Important’ and ‘I’m Falling’ (the closest to a hit the band ever had), all taken from the original tapes and carefully mastered. Seven bonus tracks highlight the work of Lost Soul’s main songwriter Denny Carleton (one-time member of The Choir, and more surprisingly, punk legends the Pagans); selections by The Choir, Moses, Milk and Carleton, many in all possible low-fi glory, recorded on various 4-Track devices, ranging from power-pop to grimy garage.
