Both Crooked Man albums on 2xLP, one affordable bundled price.
On Crooked Man - Crooked Man: The Crooked Man’s music blends wonky electronic rhythms, heavy bass and razor sharp, politically aware lyrics, often delivered by the honeyed tonsils of Pete Simpson. For proof, check out the banker‐baiting “Scum (Always Rises The Top)”, or the bittersweet social commentary of “Fools & Fanatics”. The Crooked Man may be world weary, but he’s still brimming with rage. Few could have foreseen a link between this jaded recluse and New York’s militantly forward‐looking DFA Records. But then again, the Crooked Man does have history. Read the complete copy and hear the LP here.
On Crooked Man - Crooked House: The elusive Crooked Man returns to DFA with Crooked House, a maximalist take on electronic and house music that picks up where 2016’s self-titled LP left off. Teaming up again with Michael Somerset Ward (Clock DVA) and David Lewin (Bleep & Booster) in the studio, Richard Barratt crafts a comprehensive journey of hi-fi house belters with more sinister electro-pop mixed in for good measure. The LP is influenced by two historic epicenters of electronic music: Sheffield, UK, where Richard has had an illustrious career in a mix of legendary groups like Funky Worm, Sweet Exorcist, and The All Seeing I; and the NYC Loft-era disco sound, where extended grooves were layered with peak-time choruses.

Originally conceived as a series of 3x12" singles, the first blast of Black Meteoric Star tracks ended up coming together on a self-titled "album" in 2009. It being 2009 and all, the collection only came out digitally and on CD (?). It never got a proper vinyl release.
So, this is the next best thing: all three original BMS twelves, purchasable as a unit, at a special bundled price.
Death From Abroad was a DFA sub-label dedicated to making awesome music from international artists available at home in the US. These were records we found whilst traveling, DJing, shopping and meeting wonderful people the world over. (This was in 2007 - before YouTube, streaming, and the rise of online vinyl sales rendered endeavors such as this relatively moot.)
We have but a few sets of the original twelves available. Cop 'em here for the nice bundled price.
