Minor Threat was a compilation album by the American hardcore punk band Minor Threat. It was released in March 1984 through Dischord Records. The compilation consisted of the group’s first two extended plays, Minor Threat (originally released June 1981) and In My Eyes (originally released December 1981). The 1984 Minor Threat LP featured the same cover as the 1981 Minor Theat EP, depicting vocalist Ian MacKaye’s younger brother Alec (Untouchables, The Faith).
OFFICIAL REISSUE OF FLEETWOOD MAC’S RUMOURS pressed up on virgin audiophile vinyl. Not the rarest record by any means (it is after all the second biggest-selling record of all time), but still heavily sweated amongst djs, collectors, and music lovers alike for good reason. This is the one with all hits – “Dreams,” “Don’t Stop,” “Go Your Own Way,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “The Chain,” etc. Stevie Nicks and company were at the top of their game with this one making it the top album of 1977 (catching a Grammy for best album and Diamond award from R.I.A.A.). Classic and essential.
Heavy post-rockers Vago Sagrado set a peaceful atmosphere with “K is Kool,” the opening track of their third album, Vol. III, that is hard to resist. They’ll soon enough pump in contrast via the foreboding low end of “La Pieza Oscura,” but the feeling of purposeful drift in the guitar remains resonant, even as the drums and vocals take on a kind of punkish feel. The mix is one that the Chilean three-piece seem to delight in, reveling in tonal adventurousness in the quiet/loud tradeoff of “Fire (In Your Head)” and the New Wave shuffle of “Sundown” before “Centinela” kicks off side B with the kind of groove that Queens of the Stone Age fans have been missing for the last 15 years. Things get far out in “Listen & Obey,” but Vago Sagrado never completely lose their sense of direction, and that only makes the proceedings more engaging as the hypnotic “One More Time with Feeling” leads into the nine-minute closer “Mekong,” wherein the wash teased all along comes to fruition.
