Artist: BIG DIPPER
Title: Crashes on the Platinum Planet
Format: LP
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Big Dipper Crashes on the Platinum Planet is the latest, and perhaps boldest, excursion into the perilous realm of Astronomy Pop by veteran indie-rockers BIG DIPPER. Inspired by a triumphant reunion tour in support of Merge Records 2008 3-disc retrospective Supercluster: The Big Dipper Anthology, the band returned from the stratosphere with a stellar collection of brand new songs. Just a few weeks after touring, Big Dipper began recording the new material in GARY WALEIKs top-secret Command Module studio. The album boasts cover art by Guided By Voices main-man ROB POLLARD, a huge Big Dipper fan (Pollard rates them the 20th greatest band in rock history, #19 being T. Rex!). The recording line-up consists of guitarist/vocalist BILL GOFFRIER, drummer/vocalist JEFF OLIPHANT, late-era Dipper alum TOM BREWITT on bass and the aforementioned vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/producer Waleik, with special guest appearances by Commander FRANK BORMAN and Command Module Pilot JIM LOVELL of the Apollo 8 Mission as well as some of the Dippers offspring. The discs 12 songs shimmer with Big Dippers trademark sound: twin vocals, ethereal harmonies, dynamic guitar arrangements by Goffrier and Waleik (dubbed by some a "two-headed guitar monster"), Oliphants powerful drumming and Brewitts melodic bass playing. But longtime fans may also be surprised at how easily Dipper has stretched its own boundaries." - Almost Ready.

Artist: LIQUOR STORE
Title: Yeah Buddy
Format: Double LP
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Literally years in the making, this double LP serves as the epic statement that a certain resident of New Jersey (hint: its not Snooki) has been desperately trying to make for years. But he has been lacking in one key arena – Youth. Liquor Store are true sub-urban punks raised on mountains of pizza, bottomless kegs of Budweiser, and enough ennui to kill a normal human. Luckily, these doods are anything but normal, and theyre sprawling, yet focused, twin platter rolls up the heavies (Ramones, Dictators, Creedence, Motley Crue, Adrenalin O.D.) of this ridiculous rock n roll existence, and smokes a giant doobie of Truth, Justice, and The American Way. Take a hit. Hold it in." - The Commish.

Artist: PINK NOISE
Title: Alpha
Format: LP
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The Pink Noise became one of the best bands in the world in a single night last spring. After a week of practice in Detroit the members drove down to their debut in New York City, Gotham city, the big she-bang, only to walk onstage to instruments they couldnt play and songs they couldnt remember. After antagonizing the crowd for five minutes or so, the purposefully bad set was abruptly ended by a 300-pound bouncer, who proceeded to toss them out of the door. Nobody, including the label-heads in New York who beg to release The Pink Noises music, has heard from them since. Luckily the Alpha record was finished before this fiasco. It is the work of sinister pop scientists running on all cylinders, cramming multiple organs into a single cadaver only to reveal a skeleton for each song. Mixing influences from across the pond (theyd fit in with late-70s Manchester) and across the continent (Northern Cali pioneers such as Chrome and Minimal Man come to mind) with a primitive aura rarely adopted to this style, Alpha gets high scores in every category, its urgency and immediacy unparalleled in the land of limp keyboard amateurs. Now with live drums! Essential 09 listening." - Almost Ready.

Artist: PINK REASON
Title: Desperate Living
Format: 7"
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Pink Reason is back with a raging slab of dark, desperate hardcore. The introduction of a full band lineup and studio recording makes this the first record of its kind by Pink Reason and the bands first new record in over a year. Expanding upon territory first covered on their "Borrowed Time" single (Fashionable Idiots), the band has unleashed their most aggressive release to date with a sound reminiscent of early Husker Du, The Wipers and perhaps a hint of Totalitar. The B-side features a cover of "Your Girlfriend" by Columbus legends V3." - Almost Ready.

Artist: PREFAB MESSIAHS
Title: Franz Kafka/Prefab Sun
Format: 7"
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Cobbwebbed-basement mystery surrounds this early-80s "Wormtown" (Worcester MA) combo that dared (if they were even aware of it) to infuse proto-lo-fi post-punk sounds with drizzles of off-kilter psych and lashings of garage-pop melodicism -- all informed by an attitude that combined cryptic social digs, bone-dry wit and Dadaist pranksterism. Anthology Recordings (a one-time digital retailer of rare/collectible music) declared that The Prefab Messiahs "manage to perfectly execute the difficult joining of punk, psych, and garage." Some have waxed less analytical: in psych-legend Bobb Trimbles song "Armour of the Shroud", he wrote "Well the Rolling Stones come to town / dont throw the Prefab Messiahs out of bounds / God save those dreamers / theyre all thats left sometimes." Now Almost Ready brings you the two lead-off tracks from the as-yet-unreissued Devolver album in a handsome 7" package. Features: art & layout from Prefabs singer Xeth "Xerox" Feinberg and band photos by Bobb Trimble (the bands friend, guru, and sometime producer)." - Almost Ready.
