180-Gram High Quality Virgin Vinyl - Limited Gatefold Edition. One of the most celebrated and emblematic LPs of Brazilian music, Todos Os Olhos was an album in which Tom Ze presented, with a lot of courage, a different way of fighting his country's military dictatorship. "This was the record that took me out of circulation," explained Tom Ze. "Until then I was played on the radio." However, he admitted that, "This album is something so joyful that I've done, that I don't even know how to explain. It was the best thing I've accomplished after years of incomprehensible lack of motivation. I noticed that my heart could stand being unpopular, and this conviction spread comfortably inside me. This record had the faculty of bringing back my internal joy. It has brought back the joy of singing, of making music, of creating, of accomplishing. It's what I'm doing." 1130 GRAM HIGH QUALITY VIRGIN VINYL LIMITED EDITION

Rich Ruth, the recording project of Nashville multi-instrumentalist Michael Ruth, makes wholly immersive instrumental songs that thread the line between gleefully adventurous and calmingly meditative. His music starts in solitude with mesmerizing loops and drones anchoring the arrangements that are eventually colored in by an eclectic cast of collaborators. The resulting exploratory compositions, which combine spiritual jazz, synth-infused post-rock, and cosmic ambient, often beguile but they always soar with a palpable immediacy. His new album Water Still Flows is both his heaviest and his most cathartic. Across seven songs, the LP is both a document of an artist stretching the limits of his process and a testament to how songwriting can be a personally grounding force.
