Ripple Music -- Scant Amount of Rare Limited Edition LP's Recently Found
Ripple Music Limited Edition LP's tend to sell out in minutes (like the Mothership II Cosmic Edition which was cleaned out completely in 15 minutes). But every once in a while we discover a few in the warehouse and that becomes your opportunity to get in before they're all gone. Not all Limited Editions are available (once they're sold out--they're out). But we do have these gorgeous slabs of vinyl in very scant quantities available in the Ripple Store now.
A conceptual album that mixes animal aggression and technical precision, APE MACHINE’s Mangled By The Machine carries an organic depth and warmth rarely heard since the time of rock’s glorious early years, and infused with an exceptional modern sensibility. When the mystical lyrics lock in with the band’s stone-cold groove, APE MACHINE demonstrates an earth-shaking ability to rock. A true four-piece, the group has been called real heavy-psych for the iPhone generation that delivers true guts and glory rock and roll.
