• Formed in the college town of Umeå in northern Sweden in 1987, MESHUGGAH have spent the last twenty seven years and cumulative fourteen releases developing, exploring, and redefining their complex, inimitable approach on the art of expressing the music they hear in their heads. A group that has not sounded like anyone else in over two decades, MESHUGGAH are one of the few purely and honestly lateral-thinking forces, genuinely dedicated to pushing the boundaries of extreme music, simply because doing so comes naturally to them.
• Celebrating over a quarter of a century as one of the spearheads of their genre, MESHUGGAH are now treating their fans to the release of a new DVD entitled »The Ophidian Trek«. This audio-visual encounter contains a full MESHUGGAH live show, recorded on May 03, 2013 at their co-headline show alongside DEVIN TOWNSEND at Brixton Academy, London.
• The thirteen tracks on »The Ophidian Trek« represent a great retrospective of MESHUGGAH’s fulminant carrier.Kicking off the show with ‘Swarm’, just one of many from their most recent album »Koloss« (2012), going back to »ObZen« (2008) with songs like ‘Lethargica’ and ‘Bleed’ and all the way to the very early days of »Chaosphere« (1998) with the track ‘New Millenium Cynadie Christ’.

Tom Petty - Wildflowers (1994/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Tom Petty
Title: Wildflowers
Genre: Rock, Heartland Rock, Rock & Roll
Label: © Warner Bros. Records
Release Date: 1994/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: PonoMusic
Duration: 01:02:36
Recorded: 1992–94 in Los Angeles, CA at Sound City and Ocean Way Recording

Wildflowers is the second solo album by American musician Tom Petty, released on the first of November, 1994. The album was the first released by Petty after signing a contract with Warner Bros. Records (where he had recorded as part of the Traveling Wilburys) and the first of three albums produced by Rick Rubin.
Three singles were released from the album between 1994 and 1995, the most successful of which, "You Don't Know How It Feels", reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Album Rock Tracks chart for one week.
The album features all members of the Heartbreakers with the exception of drummer Stan Lynch. Steve Ferrone plays drums on Wildflowers and would join the band officially the following year. However, the album was not credited to the Heartbreakers because, in Petty's words, "Rick (Rubin) and I both wanted more freedom than to be strapped into five guys."[8] Freedom notwithstanding, Petty chose to use most of his regular band as session players, demonstrating his comfort with that format. Rolling Stone placed Wildflowers at number twelve on their list of the best albums of the nineties. Guitar World placed the album at number 49 in their "Superunknown: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1994" list.

The Who - Who Are You (1978/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: The Who
Title: Who Are You
Genre: Rock
Label: © Geffen Records
Release Date: 1978/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 59:01
Recorded: October 1977 – April 1978 Ramport Studios, Battersea; Olympic Studios; RAK Studios, St John's Wood and Pete Townshend's own studio in Goring-on-Thames

By the end of the '70s, the original version of the Who was reaching the end of its tether (Keith Moon was nearing the end of his life). „Who Are You“ can be seen as something of a swan song for the spirit that ignited the rock & roll juggernaut that was the Who in its prime. The increased prominence of synthesizers here (the electronic flavoring of the title track recalls 'Baba O'Riley') points towards the direction the post-Moon '80s version of the band would take. Instead of casting aspersions on socio-political ills, Townshend was casting glances askance at current musical trends ('Sister Disco') and his own occupation ('Guitar and Pen'). Entwistle's bass still rumbles melodically through the tunes in the grand style, and Daltrey's wounded-beast roar is at its most impassioned on such songs as 'Had Enough.' The end of an era was just around the corner, but the band blazed away regardless, making WHO ARE YOU the last must-have Who album.
'Music must change,' sings The Who in the song of the same name, and yet it is ironic that while the mainstream of rock is moving toward a harder sound, The Who, considered the quintessential hard rock band, has chosen to sweeten its mix with strings and synthesizers in this, the band's first LP in over three years. Nevertheless the LP is unmistakably The Who. As so often in the past, this LP reflects Peter Townshend's preoccupation with the state of current pop culture and his and the band's place in it. Side One is the softer side with the band rocking a bit more on the flip side. Despite the strings and synthesizers, the arrangements are always spare and to the point, with flashes of old power and moments of instrumental brilliance belying any thought the band may be past its peak. The title song is a pop masterpiece. Best cuts: 'Who Are You,' 'Guitar And Pen,' 'Sister Disco,' 'Love Is Coming Down.' (Billboard)

There are 6 previously unreleased tracks, and the album’s minimal graphics have been expanded exponentially and include three sets of liner notes.

The Who - Face Dances (1981/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: The Who
Title: Face Dances
Genre: Rock
Label: © Geffen Records
Release Date: 1981/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 59:42
Recorded: July to December 1980 at Odyssey Recording Studios, London, UK

The Who's first album since the untimely passing of drummer Keith Moon, Face Dances could have been rejected as a token project by a dated band. Thankfully that's not the case and, never the victims of circumstance, The Who shine in the face of adversity.
Face Dances was not only The Who's debut album of the '80s, it was their first without the manic force of drummer Keith Moon, who passed away in 1978 and you can see the effect it has on the tight-knit, yet disorderly band.
„You Better You Bet“ is hit material from the off, while „Another Tricky Day“ and „How Can You Do It Alone“ pay note to impending middle-age and dreaded responsibility.
And with this new maturity comes Pete Townshend's thoughtful lyrics and Roger Daltrey's emphatic vocal. Meanwhile John Entwistle's bass is heavier than ever and Kenney Jones's drumming fills Moonie's manic void.
While a mood of introspection lurks throughout, it is clear The Who's fire still burns bright and no less furious. Face Dances went platinum and became the #2 album of 1981.

Schumann - Kinderszenen & Waldszenen / Janacek - On the overgrown path I - Marc-Andre Hamelin (2014 ) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Leoš Janáček (1854-1928), Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
Artist: Marc-André Hamelin
Title: Schumann- Kinderszenen & Waldszenen; Janáček- On the overgrown path I
Genre: Classical
Label: © Hyperion Records
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: hyperion-records
Duration: 74 minutes 26 seconds
Recorded: March 2013 at Henry Wood Hall, London, United Kingdom

Marc-André presents a fascinating juxtaposition of two composers who are not obviously musically related, but who are proved on this album to be a felicitous combination.
Schumann’s well-loved Kinderszenen (‘Scenes from childhood’) cycle is a masterpiece: each piece is as deftly and exquisitely crafted as anything in his more outwardly sophisticated mode. From the haunting beauty of the opening ‘From foreign lands and people’ (‘Von fremden Ländern und Menschen’), via the spare eloquence of the central ‘Dreaming’ (‘Träumerei’), to the quiet rhetoric of ‘The poet speaks’ (‘Der Dichter spricht’), the listener is taken through nuances of emotion whose effects are heartrendingly poignant.
Waldszenen (‘Forest scenes’) is another collection of miniatures, and Schumann’s last major cycle for solo piano. This deeply ‘Romantic’ work in the most psychological sense of the word is no objective foray into the woods, but a very personal reaction to an imagined landscape; and equally striking is the sense that each piece represents just a shard of a larger experience. On the whole it is the more bucolic aspect that Schumann explores, though these pieces are not without darker shadows. And while they may be technically fairly straightforward, their changeability calls for the quickest of reactions and a wealth of subtle nuance.
Over half a century separates Schumann’s nature-inspired Waldszenen from the first book of Janáček’s On the overgrown path. The subject matter is darker and more oblique and the piano writing is deceptively treacherous, many of the difficulties far from overt. The title of the overall cycle refers to a Moravian wedding song, the bride lamenting that ‘The path to my mother’s has become overgrown with clover’. The sequence of ten pieces that comprises Book 1 constitutes, as the scholar John Tyrrell has written, some of the ‘profoundest, most disturbing music that Janáček had written, their impact quite out of proportion to their modest means and ambition’.

Punch Brothers - The Phosphorescent Blues (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Punch Brothers
Title: The Phosphorescent Blues
Genre: Folk, Country, Bluegrass
Label: © Nonesuch Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 45:47
Recorded: Ocean Way Recording, Hollywood, CA and The Village Recorders, Santa Monica, CA

After working with Burnett numerous times—most recently on the soundtrack for the Joel and Ethan Coen film Inside Llewyn Davis and the related Town Hall/Showtime concert Another Day, Another Time—Punch Brothers decided to join forces with the multiple Grammy Award–winning producer for their new record. Last summer, the band and Burnett spent a month at Hollywood’s Ocean Way Recording laying down the songs that guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjo player Noam Pikelny, mandolinist and lead singer Chris Thile, and fiddler Gabe Witcher had written during several writing “retreats” last winter and spring.

Thile explains one of the ways the music on The Phosphorescent Blues reflects the band’s view of modern life: “We often go to bars after shows or writing sessions, to be around other people for a little while. And I’d see people just like me on their phones, telling people they wish they were there, texting people who really are there. Then a song would come on that somebody likes and then they see that someone else does too and maybe they both sing it together and that moment is spiritual, some shared experience, and they are interacting in the flesh, with their fellow man. And that’s communion. Many of the songs on this record dive into that: how do we cultivate beautiful, three-dimensional experiences with our fellow man in this day and age?”

Shortly before the sessions began, Thile and Witcher met with Burnett and discovered the producer had the very same things on his mind. In fact, he’d just given a commencement address at the University of Southern California on the subject of technology and human interaction. Witcher remembers, “Thile and I looked at each and said, ‘This is unbelievable. It’s exactly what we are writing about.’ So this was a perfect, serendipitous union.”

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi - Stabat Mater, Salve Regina, Flute Concerto - Florilegium (2010) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710-1736)
Artist: Florilegium
Title: Pergolesi - Stabat Mater, Salve Regina, Flute Concerto
Genre: Classical
Label: © Channel Classics Records B.V.
Release Date: 2010
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Duration: 01:12:19
Recorded: 23-25 September 2009, St John the Evangelist Church, Upper Norwood, London

As a composer Pergolesi’s productive career began at the age of twenty, and by twenty-six (March 1736) he had died of tuberculosis. During his lifetime Pergolesi’s fame was restricted, in the main, to Rome and Naples, yet after his death, his reputation eclipsed most other composers in the second half of the eighteenth century. The whole of Europe developed an increasing curiosity for his compositions. His posthumous celebrity status was such a magnet in the music world that, hoping to reap large financial profits, publishers and opera directors alike attributed his name to hundreds of vocal and instrumental works by lesser-known composers. Following Pergolesi’s death the Stabat Mater became one of the most celebrated and frequently printed works of the 18th century.

Neil Young - After The Gold Rush (1970/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Neil Young
Title: After The Gold Rush
Genre: Rock, Folk Rock, Country Rock
Label: © Reprise Records
Release Date: 1970/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: PonoMusic
Duration: 00:35:04
Recorded: Winter 1970 – June 1970; Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA; Sound City, Van Nuys, Los Angeles; Redwood Studios, Topanga, CA.

In the 15 months between the release of Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and After the Gold Rush, Neil Young issued a series of recordings in different styles that could have prepared his listeners for the differences between the two LPs. His two compositions on the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young album Déjà Vu, "Helpless" and "Country Girl," returned him to the folk and country styles he had pursued before delving into the hard rock of Everybody Knows; two other singles, "Sugar Mountain" and "Oh, Lonesome Me," also emphasized those roots. But "Ohio," a CSNY single, rocked as hard as anything on the second album. After the Gold Rush was recorded with the aid of Nils Lofgren, a 17-year-old unknown whose piano was a major instrument, turning one of the few real rockers, "Southern Man" (which had unsparing protest lyrics typical of Phil Ochs), into a more stately effort than anything on the previous album and giving a classic tone to the title track, a mystical ballad that featured some of Young's most imaginative lyrics and became one of his most memorable songs. But much of After the Gold Rush consisted of country-folk love songs, which consolidated the audience Young had earned through his tours and recordings with CSNY; its dark yet hopeful tone matched the tenor of the times in 1970, making it one of the definitive singer/songwriter albums, and it has remained among Young's major achievements. --William Ruhlmann
