Antietam - Tenth Life CD

$10.00
CD released in 2011 on Carrot Top Records. "As the leader of this undefeated New York trio, singer and guitarist Tara Key has never pulled her punches, but never have they landed so fiercely, and with such grace, as they do here, six songs in. “Clarion” is an instrumental, a melody building on its own lyricism, all sunsets and sunrises, until it fades into “Better Man,” where it reveals itself as a fanfare, because this is the song—relentless, confident, triumphant, every swagger earned and paid for a hundred times over—you didn’t know you were waiting for." GREIL MARCUS, TRUE BELIEVER (2011)

Antietam - Opus Mixtum CD

$15.00
Double CD. Release date 2008. "Now in their third decade, this Kentucky-spawned, New York–based trio could pass for a bunch of eager newcomers who can’t decide what kind of band they want to be when they grow up... the sprawl of ideas is dazzling: tensely elegant rockers (“Pennants and Flags”), mesmerizing free-form instrumentals (the nine-minute “Tierra del Fuego”), psychedelic-funk fusion (“King Me”), and good old-fashioned punk aggression (“You/I”). As always, Tara Key’s husky, offhand vocals and inventive yet precise guitar embody hip charisma, generating heat without straining for effect." SPIN 2/26/2008

$20.00

Antietam - Victory Park CD

$10.00
CD released in 2004 marking Anietam's return to recorded action on Carrot Top Records. Recorded and produced by Antietam and Tara Jane O'Neil. ...the Antietam family lost five close loved ones, including two fathers. One friend died in the 9-11 tragedy, and another was viciously murdered. Victory Park is Antietam's eulogy, and it's a damn lovely one...Key rips off soaring solos that fly over the kind of emotionally charged acoustic strumming that put Britpop acts like Coldplay and Travis on the charts. "The Hold" has a dark and bobbing bass line imbued with Joy Division's suicidal despondency, the mood made even more desperate by Key's wrist-slashing razor guitar strokes. "Skying" sees Antietam lifting its bowed head and squinting at the sun through a coastal morning fog - appropriate since Victory Park was recorded in a beach house near the Atlantic Ocean - burnt off by Key's breathy vocals and keyboard drifts, and Madell's rolling bongos. Supposedly, there are five stages of grief. Anger is one of them, and Antietam lets it out on "Stowaway", the bitterness evident in Key's acidic delivery of lines like "Push to shove the dominoes will fall down." LOST AT SEA (2004)

Tara Key - Ear and Echo CD

$10.00
Second "solo" TK CD released in 1995 on Homestead Records "Key's two solo albums - last year's Bourbon County and the upcoming Ear and Echo, both on Homestead - also boast spectacular feedback washes, with Tara's keening electrics often juxtaposed against a violently strummed Gibson J-200 acoustic. "The second record was a more passionate experience," she reports. "I've got to confess I threw a couple of guitars." After tracking the feedback-drenched "Left-Handed Way," the guitarist and her Gretsch Country Gentleman found themselves wrapped around a chair on the floor, the two of them having rolled their at some point during the take. "When I make feedback, I'm not thinking about anything else in the world," insists Key. "I'm just surfing. I know which positions will yield which sounds, and how to change them according to how hard I press down on the strings or which strings I damp. I love that feeling... I want to live right there. It's the absolute crest of the wave, the moment of total, open possibility." GUITAR PLAYER (1995)

Tara Key - Bourbon County CD

$10.00
First "solo" CD by TK recorded in 1993 for Homestead Records. "Bourbon County reveals a true artist at work at her own chosen speed in her own favored environment and with her own crew of colleagues. The album is captivating in its ability to portray its emotions so clearly, even when there are no lyrics to be heard. The range of styles, feelings, tempos and psyches this album possesses is quite vast and always has something different for the listener to enjoy upon each listen. This is definitely a required listen for any fan of Antietam, rock music that disregards borders or any kind of music that’s created by an authentic artist." RECORD CRATES UNITED - 2013

Antietam - Comes Alive CD

$10.00

Babylon Dance Band - "When I'm Home"/"Remains of the Beat"

$12.00
7" single self-released by the BDB in 1981. "The Louisville, Kentucky-based quartet plays no-frills rock 'n' roll that may be a bit too raw for some programmers, but exudes a compelling sincerity that stands up and out after repeated listenings. Lead vocalist Chip Nold cries from the heart, and guitarist Tara Key plays from her soul." RECORD WORLD 1982

Babylon Dance Band - "Someday"/"Rubbertown"

$12.00
7" single, released 1990 on Trash Flow Records.

Babylon Dance Band - Four On One CD

$10.00
1994 Matador Records release. "No mere reunion, this 1994 release documents why the Babs were the pinnacle of the region's early alternative music. Mainstays of late '70's and early '80's Louisville, New York and expanded scenes, this band defined and expanded the freewheeling punk style. Furious feedback guitars from goddess Tara Key, driving bass from Tim Harris, Sean Mulhall's cracking yet syncopated drums, and Chip Nold's white soul screams melded hypercharged simple riffs into anthems. Songs: My Friend Roger: "the Kentucky Louie Louie" (per Tony Briggs) - a definitive show stopper; When I'm Home: the original single got the BDB on the cover of the Village Voice, bigger than life, around 1980; Leave: cover of proteges Your Food's artsy shuffle; Bold Beginnings, Shively Spleen, SHAKE, it all rocks your world."

Antietam - Burgoo CD

$10.00
CD released in 1990 on Triple X Records. Produced by Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan. "On Burgoo the spare, pulsating anti-rhythms of bassist Tim Harris and drummer Charles Schultz are constantly on the verge of declaring war on singer/guitarist Tara Key, who uses her amp as an instrument of death, but sings like an angel with wings of desire."
