Tag: Omnivore Recordings
The third and final installment of Omnivore Recordings’ documenting of Country singer Buck Owens’ prolific output for Capitol Records finds the singer exploring different sounds in a recording career that was taking second place to television stardom, and would come to a sudden end with the death of his musical partner and best friend. Though this era wasn’t as prominent as the decade before, this collection contains some fine music worthy of rediscovery.
Today we offer you an exclusive first listen to a track from Sounds Like Music, the forthcoming Omnivore Recordings compilation from brothers Chip and Tony Kinman.
One of the most brilliant and uniquely sounding albums from the fertile underground Texas Music scene of the 1970s gets a well-deserved reintroduction to the world.
We take a look at four recent archival reissues that highlight the talent and the creative range of the late Alex Chilton.
Minneapolis rockers Soul Asylum’s third album offered a glimpse of promise for the young band, and soon marked their farewell from the independent rock world. This reissue also includes an odds and ends EP that humorously pay tribute to their new record label.
Omnivore’s latest excursion into the vast Buck Owens vault features a fantastic look at the work of Tom Brumley, his pedal steel guitarist for the majority of the 1960s.
Dan Loves Patti’, the sole album from Chicago musician Chris Holmes’ studio project Yum-Yum, is one of the truly lost gems of the 1990s, and this reissue is a wonderful reintroduction to a band you probably never heard the first time.
The posies released their major-label debut in 1990 with Dear 23, a slick and earnest record of great promise, yet one that felt oddly empty. This deluxe edition reveals a record that suffered somewhat from sounding too polished, and the rough demos help present the album in a different and perhaps more accurate light.
Austin rock trio Fastball’s sophomore release was an unapologetically grown-up album, and to everyone’s surprise the record was an unexpected hit in 1998.
