3 Songs: On Repeat – Remixed, Remastered & Reissued Edition

My Morning Jacket – “Run Thru” (My Morning Jacket’s breakout album, It Still Moves was released in 2003.  It was praised as an instant classic and was loved for its silo-sized reverb-rich sound so when it was announced that the band was going to reissue the album with a remixed and remastered sound I was a bit put off but frontman Jim James was never as fond of the record’s sound and wanted to update it.  Out Friday, May 27 via ATO Records – in celebration of the label’s 15th anniversary - is the It Still Moves Deluxe Reissue and good news…it still rocks with mightier, crisper production and the addition of three b-sides as well as ten demo versions of album tracks all previously unreleased.)

Wolf Parade – “Snakes On A Ladder” (In conjunction with their recent reformation, Sub Pop has released a reissued deluxe edition of Apologies To The Queen Mary, the Canadian band’s acclaimed debut album.  In addition to an all new remixed version of the album, the three-LP set includes their 2003 and 2004 self-titled EPs on vinyl for the first time and also includes the previously unreleased track “Snakes on the Ladder”, taken from the Apologies sessions and heard here.)

Death – “Torn To Pieces (Original Florida Session)” (Over the last couple of years, Relapse Records has been reissuing the death metal pioneers’ influential albums and have been including a ton of previously unreleased demos, rehearsals and instrumental tracks with each expanded edition.  They have completed their project with Death’s ground-breaking debut album, Scream Bloody Gore which was released last week.  The late Chuck Schuldiner’s legacy is preserved on the Limited Edition 3CD Deluxe Reissue which features 42 tracks including several different rehearsal versions as well as the original Florida recording sessions.  Hear where it all began as the album ignited the extreme metal community, sparking a new genre altogether.)
