Mary Timony and Helium are often overlooked in the (indie)rock world at large, but all actual fans are die-hard. I’ve either encountered “who’s that?” or “Mary Timony is one of the most important musicians of the 90’s,” but no in- between. So here we go with an excellent expanded reissue campaign from Matador that’s suitable for beginners and even has a collection of rarities for the die-hards. One listen and you can taste Timony’s influence in so much of modern indie rock. If you’re into that sound NOW, go in reverse and learn the framework. -MLE

Helium – Ends With And 2LP, The Dirt Of Luck LP, The Magic City & No Guitars 2LP
Listen: “Pat’s Trick”

“No history of American indie should be written without a chapter on Mary Timony, who managed to straddle multiple worlds—among them Boston’s college-borne rock realm and Dischord’s DC-based DIY scene—over the course of her early career. In the Boston band Helium, Timony took center stage, playing rock and roll that was anything but straightforward… and finally their influential output is being released on May 19th on vinyl after a decade of being out of print. In addition to the reissues of 1995’s renowned The Dirt Of Luck and 1997’s The Magic City (bundled on a double LP with the No Guitars EP), Helium and Matador Records will also release a brand new collection of rarities, b-sides, and unreleased demos on a 19-track double LP (with 5 bonus downloads) titled Ends With And.” -Matador
