As we mentioned a couple weeks ago, the Brooklyn based label Personal Injury Records has just reissued two albums from lo-fi legend R. Stevie Moore. The prolific singer, songwriter, and musician has self-released over 400 albums since 1968, mostly through the R. Stevie Moore Cassette Club, a home-based label. Moore has also worked on numerous collaborations with a wide array of artists including: Ariel Pink, Mike Watt, Dr. Dog, Eric Matthews, MGMT, The Vaccines, Tim Burgess and many more.
Moore’s classic 2nd album Delicate Tension was originally released by his uncle on HP Music in 1978.Delicate Tension is regarded as an absolute highlight of RSM’s massive discography. Reissued for the first time on vinyl in an exact-repro sleeve and mastered from a digital transfer off the original analog reels.
Glad Music, originally released on the French label New Rose in 1986, is regarded as one of the highlights of RSM’s 400+ album discography and was featured as one of his six most “essential” albums by The WIRE.
