1 - GRAILS - BLACK TAR PROPHECIES VOL'S 1, 2, & 3 (REISSUE) - (LP) 
TEMPORARY RESIDENCE


Reissue of long out-of-print, sought-after GRAILS collection! Remastered for vinyl and reissued for the first time in over a decade, Black Tar Prophecies Vols. 1, 2, & 3 is a massive evolutionary step in the established Grails sound and is shrouded in change and pain. The somewhat clinical studio sound and recording style with which they had established a tremendous following has been replaced with a much more free and conceptual recording style. This method liberated the group in the studio and these recordings feel much more open, heavy, and psychedelic. This sound has always existed within Grails, but it was here that it became their identity.

2 - GRAILS - BLACK TAR PROPHECIES VOLS. 4, 5 & 6 - (LP) 
TEMPORARY


Following the release of their most acclaimed album of their decade-long career, "Deep Politics" (2011), GRAILS revisited "Black Tar Prophecies", their ever-expanding, enigmatic tapestry of eclectic experiments released in scarce limited editions that often disappear before most fans discover their existence. "Black Tar Prophecies Vol's 4, 5 & 6" collects the last three volumes in the BlackTar series, originally released as a limited-edition 12", and a split LP with Finish psych-rock phenoms, PHARAOH OVERLORD. Exclusive to this collection is Volume 6, three previously unreleased tracks that run the gamut from found-sound collage to moody, piano-driven soundtracks to obscure erotic horror films that never existed (but should have). Available as deluxe Gatefold 2xLP, the vinyl features four mind-blowing laser etchings - one on each side of the record, beginning where the grooves of the music end. It's pretty, and pretty unbelievable.

4 - GRAILS - CHALICE HYMNAL - (LP) 
TEMPORARY RESIDENCE


Rather than pick up where they left off, Grails take the sky-high riff-based heaviness of their earlier albums and distill it into a nuanced, widescreen opus. The perennial influences of mid-20th century Western film scores, obscure library music, and psychedelic krautrock are indelibly imprinted, but Chalice Hymnal exudes an eerie patience in unfurling the many layers of its subtle details. Produced by the band over the past five years, Chalice Hymnal bears some of the European psych and experimental hip-hop production techniques of founding members Alex Hall and Emil Amos' other group, Lilacs & Champagne. Amos' meditative metal band, Om, and longtime singer-songwriter project, Holy Sons, also naturally find their way into the Chalice cauldron. Rounding out their leaner line-up, cofounder Zak Riles (also of experimental kraut-psych trio, Watter) layers synths and programming into an electronic-prog hybrid that pushes Grails further into the deep end, displaying a profoun d resonance, both musically and emotionally. No one else sounds like Grails, and on Chalice Hymnal they sound more like themselves than ever before.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Chalice Hymnal 02. Pelham 03. Empty Chamber 04. New Prague 05. Deeper Politics 06. Tough Guy 07. Rebecca 08. Deep Snow Ii 09. The Moth & The Flame 10. Thorns Ii 11. After The Funeral

5 - GRAILS - REDLIGHT - (LP) 
PAMLICO SOUND


Instrumental stuff like Godspeed You Black Emperor, Mogwai.Originally released by Neurosis Neurot Recordings label, Burden and Redlight together represent "phase one" of theband that would go on to become one of the worlds most acclaimed instrumental/experimental rock outfits. Stillconsidered to be fan favorites of many, these first albums were recorded in a live studio setting with minimal overdubbing,an approach far from the dense psychedelic production of the records that would follow (e.g. Burning Off Impurities,Doomsdayers Holiday). This early material offers an intriguing glimpse of the genre-colliding experiments aroundthe corner, with covers of tunes by Sun City Girls and Richard Thompson, as well as a guest appearance from SteveMackay (The Stooges).

The sophomore album from enigmatic Portland instrumentalists GRAILS. Ten tracks that take the lush and even-keeled feel of the band's debut, (often compared to Godspeed You Black Emperor), and torches them up with a flame of anxious tension, extreme ...e

7 - GRAILS - TAKE REFUGE IN CLEAN LIVING (REISSUE) - (LP) 
TEMPORARY RESIDENCE


Remastered for vinyl and reissued for the first time in nearly a decade, Take Refuge In Clean Living sees Grails pulling back their already wide lens on multiple sonic horizons. Opening with a nod to Syd Barret's Pink Floyd (Piper at the Gates of Dawn) Take Refuge In Clean Living begins with morse code and drops into one of the heaviest slowburn grooves in the Grails canon. Sounding something like Hawkwind and Ravi Shankar scoring Blade Runner, it's lysergic and earthy for Grails in a new way. The rest of the record moves from blissful Eno-inspired ambience, to epic Morricone rock hymns, to an unexpected take on a Ventures tune that returns the listener to the very beginnings of instrumental rock music.
