To play music for a long time, you have to surprise the people that love you—while also surprising yourself. Recorded in singer/guitarist James Mercer’s basement studio, Phil Ek’s Seattle digs, and in Oregon City with veteran producer Joe Chiccarelli (Beck, U2), Wincing the Night Away is The Shins’ third full-length album. It’s also the sound of a band growing up and out. Mercer’s infectious, indelible melodic style is still at the core, and unfaltering. But anything can happen around it—and in this case, it does. While the vocals channel the spirit of Morrissey, “Sea Legs” pairs a loping hip-hop beat with lush melody and searing guitars. Elsewhere the band toys with tweaked-out, liquid piano steeped in kaleidoscopic strings (“Red Rabbit”); fractured synth samples (“Spilt Needles”); gauzy, arpeggiated keyboards cloaking thunderous anthems (“Sleeping Lessons”); and, taking cues from early Jesus and Mary Chain albums, sweeping, fuzz-toned epics (“Phantom Limb”). Finally, “Turn on Me,” “Girl Sailor” and “Australia” are the lilting, thrilling, rollicking, rock-solid pop songs we’ve all come to covet from The Shins.

Album is hand-numbered and includes a digital download.

SL9-2017

On August 12th, 2016, nearly 22 years after the film’s original theatrical release, SPACELAB9 is honored to present, for the first time ever on vinyl format, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK DOUBLE LP. The critically acclaimed soundtrack album includes the full 18-track score from award-winning composer Thomas Newman (The Green Mile, American Beauty, Spectre) as well as additional tracks by The Ink Spots and Hank Williams plus a stunning performance of Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro” by the Deutsche Opera Berlin, recalling one of the most memorable scenes from the film.

The deluxe 180 gram double LP package includes a gatefold jacket highlighted with sleek silver foil stamping and features several images from the iconic film as well as exclusive liner notes by composer Thomas Newman. A limited “Prison Blues” blue vinyl variant is available from Barnes & Noble, while the “Suds on the Roof” yellow vinyl variant will be made available for pre-order on August 2nd, exclusively at SPACELAB9.com and will also be available in extremely limited quantities from the label’s booth at New York Comic Con in October.

The film adaption of the Steven King novella “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, renamed simply The Shawshank Redemption by screenwriter and director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Walking Dead), although not a hit at the box office upon its 1994 theatrical release, gained traction the following year having been nominated for seven Academy Awards. Following the home video release in 1995, The Shawshank Redemption became the most rented film of the year and would continue to grow in popularity throughout the next two decades to become one of the most iconic, endearing and enduring films of all time. The Shawshank Redemption has sat at #1 on IMDB’s user-generated list of the 250 top rated films since 2008 and in 2015 the United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it to be “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

The third reissue in the band’s Chasing The Sun: 1993-1997 series, Oasis are to re-release their 1997 LP Be Here Now as a super deluxe vinyl box set edition.

Featuring previously unreleased recorded on the Caribbean island of Mustique collected on “exclusive vinyl”, the box set also houses a copy of the LP and a hardback coffee table book with new liner notes.

But if Liam Gallagher’s response to the 2014 reissue of Definitely Maybe is anything to go buy, he probably doesn’t want you to buy it. After that release was announced Gallagher tweeted “HOW CAN YOU REMASTER SOMETHING THATS ALREADY BEING MASTERED.DONT BUY INTO IT.LET IT BE LG X”

The new Be Here Now reissue also features a new mix of the album opener “D’You Know What I Mean?” attributed to “NG’s 2016 Rethink”. Noel Gallagher had this to say about the reissue:

“As the years went by I’d started to accept that the songs on Be Here Now were in fact insanely long… too long! Someone (I can’t remember who) had the idea that we re-visit, re-edit the entire album for posterity’s sake. We got as far as the first track before we couldn’t be arsed anymore and gave up… it does sound fucking mega though!”

Be Here Now will be released via Big Brother Recordings on October 7th. Hear the new edit below.

Originally released on our in-house label Modern Method Records way back in 1982, ‘This is Boston, Not L.A.’ was a call for Boston artists to make their own rules, no matter what was going on elsewhere.

30 songs in 36 minutes, including multiple songs from legendary bands like Jerry’s Kids, The Proletariat, The F.U.’s, Gang Green, The Freeze and more, this record stands as the most persuasive argument for the vitality of Boston’s hardcore scene.

The Avalanches’ adored, plunderphonic debut Since I Left You is returning to vinyl for the first time since its original 2000 release.

The concept for the album was forged in the ’90s, when a rag-tag crew of Melbourne kids bonded over cheap gear, sampling, and crate-digging. The record supposedly patches together more than 3,500 vinyl samples.

Expected on 29 July, pre-order your reissue copy here.

A follow-up album was teased and mooted for over a decade; only this year did the band’s last remaining members (Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi) return with  Wildflower, which inevitably struggled to live up to the hype.
