Should've Learned By Now [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Silver LP]
$24.99  24.99
chart cover

It would be difficult to find a band that is more self-aware than longtime touring band Lucero. Since forming in Memphis in the late 90s, Luceros base musical hallmarks have remained similar to the bands initial sound established with their first record The Attic Tapes. In the history of their expansive discography, Lucero has evolved and embraced everything from southern rock to Stax-inspired Memphis soul, whilst simultaneously maintaining their distinctive sonic foundations. Years later, dedicated fans of the group still flock to hear the bands punchy driving rhythms, punk-rooted guitar licks, and lyrics that evoke the whiskey drenched sentimentality of Americana singer-songwriters.

For their twelfth record, Shouldve Learned by Now, Lucero drew on a lot of work from their past. Literally. By adapting songs and guitar parts that had been left over from the groups previous two albums, Lucero was able to construct one of its most comprehensive works to date.

I had a particular sound I was looking for on each record and there was no room for any goofy rock & roll or cute witticisms or even simply upbeat songs. Said primary lyricist and frontman, Ben Nichols. But now finally, it was time to revisit all of that stuff and get it out in the world. Thats how we got to the appropriately-for-us-titled album Shouldve Learned by Now. The album is basically about how we know we are fuckups and I guess we are ok with that.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer, Matt Ross-Spang, the album is a punchy, rock and roll record that utilizes the more mature production stylings the group developed over time, and combines it with the first-person introspectiveness that the band is known and loved for.

From its original Ben Nichols-designed cover art to its credits, the album is a reflection of a band that knows itself. Shouldve Learned by Now bridges the gap musically between old Lucero and new Lucero in a manner which affixes the bands position as the perfect intersection of punk initiative with hard-earned artistry. Its an album that recognizes the past in its sound and content, but leaves the door wide open to the future and for the lessons still in store.

Shook [2LP]
$27.99  27.99
chart cover
Double vinyl LP pressing. Algiers have always been unflinching, but SHOOK is at the same time notably joyous and celebratory. It was born when Fisher and Mahan found themselves back in their native Atlanta for several months, reeling from growing pressures and burnout as touring musicians. This triggered an intense period of beatmaking, reconnecting as friends over hours immersed in episodes of Rhythm Roulette and Against the Clock and descending deep into alt-rap YouTube rabbit holes. A revisit of DJ Grand Wizard Theodore's 1970s punk-infused New York City rap masterpiece 'Subway Theme' served as a spiritual moodboard for the album's cross-pollination of urban and counter-culture styles. Across the seamlessly flowing set, including spoken vignettes and ambient instrumental segues, the band pay respect to a sprawling lineage of rap and punk iconoclasts from DJ Premier, DJ Screw and Dead Boys to Lukah, Griselda and Dïat - chopping and screwing beats on a dusty SP-404 and a Sequential Circuits Tempest, building imagined sample libraries from scratch.

Rotten Bun For An Eggless Century [Lemon LP]
$22.98  24.98
chart cover

As mui zyu, Hong Kong British artist Eva Liu navigates the tricky territory of ever-changingidentity, merging fantasy and folklore to create a stage for self-acceptance and deliverance.On her debut full-lengthRotten Bun for an Eggless Century, Liu utilizes chopped-up sound-scapes, delicate industrial ambience and sweet pop melodies to introduce a characteraguidewho can be stretched across worlds to offer the catharsis of patience, perseveranceand understanding. This isnt a character formed from a desire to escape or flee the real world,but rather a way to submerge even deeper into ourselves.Rotten Bun for an Eggless Centuryis a reflection of everyone, and everything, that made us who we are.

On her 2021a wonderful thing vomits, Liu was praised for her seamless integration ofdarkened, often ominous instrumentation and pillowy-soft vocals. As the front person of UKindie-rock trio Dama Scout, Liu effortlessly navigates a disorientating genre-bending soniclandscape with a playful, gentle dexterity. Now, with the help of Dama Scout bandmateLuciano Rossi as co-producer, Lius first solo full-length builds upon these previous worlds toform a blossoming, more upbeat patchwork of lo-fi percussion, poignant lyricism and oddlyalluring arrangements.

The writing process ofRotten Bun for an Eggless Century prompted Liu to explore more of herHong Kong heritage, allowing a space for acceptance and celebration. I am Chinese and I amowning it, she explains. Before, I would resent it. I tried doing things that would make me likeless Chinese somehow. As the album began to take shape, Liu read the traditional Chinesefolklore writings of Pu Songling and joined local East and Southeast Asian groups. It openeda portal into a new self, where Liu could blend her love of video games and film scores with traditional Chinese instruments.

Food For Worms [LP]
$23.98  25.98
chart cover
Their way through their second album's identity crisis, they arrive, finally, at a place of hard-won maturity. Enter: Food for Worms, which Steen declares to be "the Lamborghini of shame records." It marks a sonic departure from anything they've done before, abandoning their post-punk beginnings for more eclectic influences, drawing from the tense atmospherics of Merchandise, the sharp yet uncomplicated lyrics of Lou Reed and the more melodic works of 90s German band, Blumfeld. For the first time, the band are not delving inwards, but seeking to capture the world around them. "I don't think you can be in your own head forever," says Steen. A conversation after one of their gigs with a friend prompted a stray thought that he held onto: "It's weird, isn't it? Popular music is always about love, heartbreak, or yourself. There isn't much about your mates." In many ways, the album is an ode to friendship, and a documentation of the dynamic that only five people who have grown up together - and grown so close, against all odds - can share.

Wederkeer [LP]
$35.98  35.98
chart cover
Five years since their much-acclaimed album VUUR VAN VERZET, early 2023 will see Dutch folk metal collective HEIDEVOLK return with their seventh studio album via Napalm Records, continuing to keep the pagan flame burning! Ever since their impressive 2005 debut, De strijdlust is geboren, HEIDEVOLK has taken the heavy music scene by storm, conquering stages throughout the world with their very own brand of folk metal. With dual clean vocals, irresistibly catchy songs, traditional instruments and fast metal riffing all fueled by their folkloric fire and pagan pride, HEIDEVOLK delivers for an uncompromising sound and musical adventure. Their new masterpiece, WEDERKEER, makes no exception, and proves why the Arnhem-based six-piece is one of the best, unrivaled and most exciting bands of their genre and beyond! In a world of myths, nature and legends of the Veluwe, Netherlands, the concept album is a powerful odyssey of the Self, deeply rooted in metal and folklore. WEDERKEER (meaning to return or revive) invites the listener to take a step back from the incessant barrage of media and stimuli and look inside, find out who we are, what is driving us, what our values are, and what weve learned from life up until now. While each of the twelve new songs individually deal with an aspect of this in mostly story form, HEIDEVOLK knows how to perfectly unleash proud hymns and direct, in-your-face metal songs! Tracks such as Klauwen Vooruit or the epic De Strijd Duurt Voort immediately kick off with the raw pagan metal power HEIDEVOLK are loved for - merging folkloric soundscapes, fast-paced riffs and ultralarge choirs. They also underline the progression of their songwriting and never forget their pagan roots on profound, emotionally haunting songs such as Drink met de Goden (Walhalla) or the epic neofolk acoustic album title track Wederkeer. Various folk musicians on vocals, violins, cello, bukkehorns and more traditional medieval instruments make WEDERKEER not only a bombastic folk and pagan metal record at its best, but a glorious return and revival of HEIDEVOLK!

Cuntry Covers Vol. 2 EP [Red Vinyl]
$21.99  21.99
chart cover
Red vinyl Loser Edition. As it's name suggested, the intimate and sultry Cuntry Covers Vol. 1 was always going to have a follow-up. Led by the brooding vocals of Bria Salmena, Cuntry Covers Vol. 2 is every bit as potent as it's predecessor whose noir-inflected alternative country-rock stood in sharp contrast to the singer's commanding delivery as leader of post-punk revivalists FRIGS. Debuting the project in 2021, the languid, reverb-drenched Cuntry Covers Vol. 1 saw her artfully collaborating with multi-instrumentalist Duncan Hay Jennings and reimagining a carefully picked collection of Americana anthems.Vol. 2 pushes the envelope further and harder. Encompassing feverish takes on tracks by Gillian Welch, Paula Cole, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Robert Lester Folsom, Glenn Campbell - by way of Nick Cave - and the late, great Loretta Lynn, Bria's deliciously dark approach shimmers through these six startling songs.Created during a break from Salmena and Jennings' work in Orville Peck's world-conquering backing band, Vol. 2 was recorded directly after Peck's second album and Bria's US tour supporting Wolf Alice. Embracing contrast, the sunny circumstances in which Vol. 1 was made were flipped on their head. Instead of a bucolic barn in the Canadian countryside, they recorded the new tracks in chilly Toronto, huddled together in their tiny makeshift home studio, with Jennings at the controls. They enlisted the help of local Toronto musicians Lucas Savatti (FRIGS), Simone Baril (US Girls, The Highest Order, Darlene Shrugg, Partner), Andrew Manktelow, and frequent collaborator Jaime Rae McCuaig.While Vol. 1 was Bria's attempt at subverting country music's conservative roots and primarily white and heterosexual agenda, here the emphasis was on experimentation. While Vol. 2 might be less personal, it's just as idiosyncratic, with half of the reversions staying true to the originals and others taken to a different universe entirely. Building on the tried-and-true/bold-and-new duality of Cuntry Covers' first offering, Vol. 2 delivers a deeper dive into the duo's brilliant alchemy of traditional and contemporary reinterpretations. The added experimental flourishes, from dizzying electronica and pulsing bass to sax-driven soul, take Bria's new EP into previously uncharted territory, signaling a thrilling new step in Bria's adventurous evolution.

There's Nothing Worse Than Too Late [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Blue & Purple Galaxy LP + Screenprinted BSide]
$20.98  22.98
chart cover

Theres Nothing Worse Than Too Late was written and recorded over the last year and half. We went back to some of our earlier influences for it. When writing, we kept referencing more timeless bands like The Starting Line, Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World and many others. It has always been important for us to write songs that are timeless, but that was in the front of our minds more than ever when compiling TNWTTL. We want our fans to go back and listen to these songs in five or ten years and still feel something. Lyrically it touches on depression, death, cutting long lasting ties for good and many other heavy subject matters. At the end of it all, if our fans feel less alone because of these songs then its a success in our eyes.

Australian psych-rock legends THE CHURCH emerge with their first new studio album in six years. The bands 26th album gleams with potential hits every bit as chiming and charming as their definitive early work. Anchored by long-time collaborator Tim Powles, drummer and producer across 17 albums since '94 and buttressed by the newly invigorated triple-guitar threat of Jeffery Cain (Remy Zero), Ashley Naylor (Even, The Stems), and ex-Powderfinger stylist Ian Haug. In the end, it's founding member, Steve Kilbey's ethereal pneumatic warble and - by his own faux-journo-speak definition in the lyrics - "reptilian bass": that hold sway, especially as the melodies get more psychedelic and prog-rock intricate on "Antarctica," "Ascendance," and the six-minute epic "Succulent." Often seen as the godfathers of an Australian psychedelic scene generating such internationally successful names as Tame Impala and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Church have continued to evolve their sound.

3 Feet High And Rising [Magenta 2LP]
$39.99  39.99
chart cover

3 Feet High and Rising is the debut studio album by hip hop trio de la Soul and was released on March 3, 1989. It marked the first of three full-length collaborations with producer Prince Paul, which would become the critical and commercial peak of both parties. Critically, as well as commercially, the album was a success. It contains the singles, "Me Myself and I", "The Magic Number, " "Buddy, " and "Eye Know". The album title came from the Johnny Cash song "Five Feet High and Rising". It is listed on Rolling Stone's 200 Essential Rock Records and The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums. When Village Voice held it's annual Pazz & Jop Critics Poll for 1989, 3 Feet High and Rising was ranked #1. It was also listed on the Rolling Stone's The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Released amid the 1989 boom in gangsta rap, which gravitated towards hardcore, confrontational, violent lyrics, de la Soul's uniquely positive style made them an oddity beginning with the first single, "Me, Myself and I". Their positivity meant many observers labeled them a "hippie" group, based on their declaration of the "D.A.I.S.Y. Age" (Da. Inner. Soul. Yall). Sampling artists as diverse as Hall & Oates, Steely Dan and The Turtles, 3 Feet High and Rising is often viewed as the stylistic beginning of 1990s alternative hip hop (and especially jazz rap).

Foreground Music [Limited Edition Orange LP]
$24.99  24.99
chart cover

FOREGROUND MUSIC, the title of Ron Gallos 4th LP, and debut for Kill Rock Stars might also be a suitable name for his own genre. In simplest terms its the opposite of background music - unavoidable, urgent, in your face - Gallos consistent theme is to confront, disrupt and sometimes even confuse people into a sense of awareness. The intention to steer away from apathy and self-empower by focusing on what we can control and make light of in a world designed to take it away. The guitar is less an instrument and more of a primal noise machine. This record is a challenge to everything and everyone, including his own self, who is holding back the progress of humanity (especially in America) into a more open, empathetic and collective unit - the words delivered with a punkish tenacity and lining even the heaviest topics with an ever-present sense of humor. It covers the full spectrum of emotion. This music feels like life feels right now. In his eyes, how could it not? Clad in caution tape and construction orange color scheme, much like his surrounding neighborhood in Philadelphia where it was written and recorded. Gallo doesnt see now (or ever) as the time to sit back and chill - this is going to be what we make it. Over the course of the record traversing between sounds akin to an exploding NYC subway station, oddball dance-punk, noise pop, even the more grave moments would sit well in whatever a modern version of CBGBs 1975 would be - in 11 songs Gallo shares detailed anecdotes and takes on male entitlement, the age of anxiety, apathy vs. action, gentrification, narcissism, retail therapy, xenophobia, the dread of future generations, right wing extremists in giant pickup trucks, capitalism, climate change and the experience

Enemy of the World: Re-Recorded [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Orange w/ Brown Splatter LP]
$32.99  32.99

New England rock band Four Year Strong have announced a re-recorded version of "Enemy of the World complete with an updated depiction of the album art. The album originally came out over 10 years ago and was a breakout record for the band. Now it sees new production and 4 extra b-sides. "We decided to re record EOTW first and foremost to be as cool as Taylor Swift, but secondly because we wanted to be able to repress the vinyl and offer it to fans that havent been able to get it since the record came out." says Alan Day. He continues "It was really interesting to revisit all of the songs down to every detail, getting to kind of relive it in a way. We recorded the drums with Will Putney (who worked on the original EOTW as a engineer), did the rest by ourselves at Dan's house, and then had Will work his magic on it and mix and master it. We had just worked with Will for the first time since 2010 on our new album Brain Pain, and figured it would be perfect to work with Will as he knows FYS old and new more than anyone. So give it a listen, come out to the tour, and party like its 2010 again."

Fauna [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Cream White LP]
$52.99  52.99
chart cover

If youre talking about modern progressive rock and dont bring up Haken, youre doing it wrong. Since the south English sextet started jamming together in 2004, theyve been one of their genres most loyal yet, simultaneously, adventurous forces. And how do you honour such an eclectic, unpredictable career? You make Fauna: Hakens most genre-busting and conceptually fascinating album to date. The premise of the album when we started writing it was that every song would have an animal assigned to it, explains singer and co-founder Ross Jennings. They all have something related to the animal kingdom that we could write about, but they also connect to the human world. Each track has layers, and some of them are more obvious than others.

Musically, Fauna represents Haken at their most diverse. Taurus commences the album with its scraping heavy metal chords, as polyrhythmic as they are jagged. However, Rosss melodic croon and the triumphant chorus are true Haken. Eyes Of Ebony is pure math rock, delicate in its start-stop clean guitar picking and chiming cymbals, while Island In The Clouds flaunts its bouncing bassline. Eighteen years deep, theyre still evolving and keeping their fans on their toes. Is there any truer definition of what making progressive rock means than that?
 

WOW [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Yellow LP]
$25.98  27.98

Kate NVs WOW offers listeners a prismatic shift in perspective and scale, a parallel dimension in which the mundane becomes funny, unfamiliar, and altogether sensational. Turning the contents of her 2020 album Room for the Moon upside down and spilling them across a floor checkered with intrigue and surprise, Kate places sound, object, and ritual under the microscope to magnify the delight hidden in plain sight of everyday life.

WOW is Kate Shilonosovas fourth full-length release as Kate NV in six years, and third for RVNG Intl. Her prolific musical output aligns with a highly attuned aesthetic and a deep commitment to visual world building. WOW is one of many of these worlds in which music is fully saturated with color, deeply tactile and textural. Shiny, sproingy, plastic. Where Room for the Moon embraced structure (abstractly speaking) and veered pop, WOW happily abandons conventional song shapes, parsing the experience of musical time into ecstatic fragments.

Kenneth Anger [Blue LP]

Over the last half decade, the music collectiveConstant Smiles has produced a prolificoutput of acclaimed music, culminating in their forthcoming record Kenneth Anger,masterfully brought to life by engineerJonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Liars, DougiePool). The group is known most recently for their much-praised debut album for SacredBones records, Paragons, an emotionally resonant offering of indie folk masterpieces that allconfront the internal ways we process our struggles with intimacies, addiction and human-ityproduced byBen Greenberg.

Constant Smiles primary singer/songwriterBen Jones uses the creative process as a tool forworking through deeply transformative periods in his life. The bands indie folk music laysbare this internal process, but onKenneth Anger, the music shifts to synth pop and looksexternally, examining creativity, community, ritual, and their place in the healing process.Ritual takes a primary role in the eponymousKenneth Anger. Not only is auteur KennethAnger himself known for his sensorial depictions of ritual, Jones often used the films as asilent visual back drop during his song writing sessions, a ritual that grounded the creationof the album. And while the directors use of saturated color inspired the warm 80s synthstyle production, the directors trailblazing spirit of authenticity also pushed Jones throughhis most vulnerable expression to date.

North Georgia Rounder is strongly related to Pony Bradshaw's last album (Calico Jim) but also stretches its legs into different territory. Place/region/localism/history has been a focus of Bradshaw's over the past few years and he has continued that focus with North Georgia Rounder. But as the album title (Rounder) suggests, its also about life on the road: in taverns, in vans, sleeping on floors, meeting good folks, etc. Bradshaw notes how he longs for a well-ordered life and acknowledges the struggle to reconcile that instinct with spending half of it on the road. But stories need to be told, he said, and somehow Ive finagled my way into a position to tell a few."

The Day The Country Died [RSD Essential Indie Colorway Deep Purple LP]
$26.99  26.99
chart cover
Indie Exclusive * The astounding debut album that established the Subhumans as a genuine force to be reckoned with, The Day The Country Died captured both the bands serious anarcho punk ideology and their irreverent sense of humour. It was apparent from the off that here was a band that could not only stimulate your brain but also put a big shit-eating grin on your face as you jumped about to them. And the now-iconic artwork by Nick Lant probably his most recognisable piece of work for the band - has adorned countless thousands of jackets and T-shirts since. Recorded over just four days during the heady summer of 1982, and released six months later in January 1983, when it quickly climbed to No. 3 in the UKs then-important Independent Charts, this exhilarating collection of songs has endured for four decades, the band still regularly kicking their live set off with the opening track, All Gone Dead.  

From The Cradle To The Grave [RSD Essential Indie Colorway Deep Purple LP]
$26.99  26.99
chart cover
Indie Exclusive * With their eclectic influences and scintillating musicianship, Subhumans were never going to be content to trot out anarcho punk by numbers, but no-one was really prepared for the progressive brilliance of their sophomore album, From The Cradle To The Grave. Whilst the A-side contains nine short sharp bursts of energised punk, gleefully embracing all points of the spikey spectrum, from the breakneck thrash of Reality Is Waiting For A Bus to the ominous dirge of Wake Up Screaming, it is the ambitious title track that really captures the imagination, its sprawling sixteen-plus-minute running time telling the sorry tale of the human life cycle across a myriad of dynamic acts. If anyone was still in any doubt, it was the band defiantly setting out their stall as a creative entity that existed outside the stifling constraints of perceived musical sub-genres. Committed to tape by the visionary John Loder at Southern Studios at the tail end of 1983, it was released in April 1984 to widespread acclaim and only kept from the No. 1 spot in the Independent Charts by New Order!

Opening with the slightly incongruous instrumental, 33322, what it lacks in rampant speed, it more than compensates for with some truly sublime compositions, assured arrangements and dizzying time changes. With a front cover illustration inked by vocalist Dick, Worlds Apart saw the band find a veritable sweet spot in their song-writing, spawning many of their best-loved tracks, such as Apathy, Businessmen and Cant Hear The Words, but every single track on the album remains an understated masterpiece.

For The Nude Party, nearly a decade has flown by in the blink of an eye. In that time, the New York-based band has released a pair of well-received albums, an EP and played numerous shows. The band has historically worked with a producer to help them create a distinct sound in their records but with their latest effort, Rides On, the band decided to handle production duties by themselves. The hands-on approach allowed the band to have as much fun creating as they ever had at any other point in their career. They recorded over 20 songs, including some that dabbled in electro-pop and stripped-down country before settling on the final 14 songs containing the best elements of 70s-driven blues rock. The relaxed vibe of the session also unleashed a diverse sonic texture compared to their previous releases. Sonically, the album is reminiscent of Sticky Fingers-era Stones, but the lyrics are mini-vignettes that embody the spirit of what The Nude Party are going for and their growth as a band. Rides On, the band confidently says, is their best record. Its also the most homegrown and organic record The Nude Party has created to date.

Mascot Records is proud to announce the release of 'Voices', the new studio album from blues rockers, The Cold Stares, available everywhere March 10th, 2023. For the past ten years, The Cold Stares have toured the world relentlessly as a duo, blowing away audiences across the US and Europe with a fierce, blistering live show that belied their bare bones, guitar-and-drums setup. Now, the band is embracing a whole new kind of chemistry as they launch their next chapter, adding a third member and channelling the classic power trio sound they grew up on with their explosive new album, Voices. "The chains were off when we made this record," says guitarist/singer Chris Tapp. "Suddenly, all the parameters that had dictated what we could and couldn't do just disappeared and we were free to create whatever sound we wanted." That sense of total artistic liberation lies at the heart of Voices, which pushes The Cold Stares' signature mix of blues, southern, and hard rock to bold new heights. Recorded almost entirely over the course of just two days with producer/engineer/mixer Mark Needham (Taj Mahal, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Walk the Moon, Fleetwood Mac), the album stands as the band's most mature, eclectic collection yet, balancing gritty muscle and tender emotion in equal measure.

If anybody knows how to fight, it's Otherwise. The Las Vegas quartet Adrian Patrick [vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar], Nick Bedrosian [bass], and Joe Conner [drums]-have weathered personal tragedy and trauma, withstood the tides of the industry, and still stand tall. If anything, the boys are stronger than ever with a one-two punch of airtight guitars, stadium-shaking grooves, and hypnotic hard-hitting hooks. Over the past decade, they've clawed their way through the rock 'n' roll ranks and emerged as an unbreakable force. Their catalog spans fan favorites such as True Love Never Dies [2012], Peace At All Costs [2014], and Sleeping Lions [2017]. Signature anthem "Soldiers" has amassed over 66 million Spotify streams and counting-unprecedented for a rock band of any era. Meanwhile, 2019's Defy kickstarted another chapter. "Crossfire" eclipsed 5.1 million Spotify streams followed by "Lifted" with 3.7 million Spotify streams. Loudwire hailed the latter as "a stomp-clap rocker." On this trip, they've also ignited the stages of Welcome To Rockville, Rocklahoma, and Shiprocked! As well as supporting Stone Sour, Papa Roach, and more. However, their fifth full-length album, Gawdzillionaire [Mascot Label Group], trumpets their fighting spirit louder than ever before.

CELEBRATING A QUARTER CENTURY OF BLACKMORE'S NIGHT. 25th ANNIVERSARY RE-MIXED EDITION OF THE MILESTONE DEBUT ALBUM "SHADOW OF THE MOON"

The band's debut album "Shadow Of The Moon" (1997) was not only Blackmore's deliberate radical cut from his previous life as celebrated rockstar in Deep Purple and Rainbow; it was a ground-breaking statement of his artistic ideals: mainly acoustic music, influenced by the songs of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance with a touch of genius that made them sound contemporary.

"Shadow Of The Moon" was a milestone album. It encompasses everything that Blackmore's Night stand for to this day: beautiful melodies and warm atmospheres that are able to reach the soul as well as joyful songs to dance to and to celebrate.

Those who really understood Ritchie Blackmore 's music in his rock years, could immediately find the essence of his greatness in Blackmore 's Night, supported by lyrics that fit his music more than ever before.

March 2023, the 25th Anniversary Edition of "Shadow Of The Moon" will be released worldwide. The album was converted in HD audio from the original recording, and it has been fully remixed, allowing the original performance to shine in its original glory. The original iconic artwork has been refreshed and reworked to celebrate the anniversary.

"More Than This is an incredibly deeply personal album to myself lyrically. But the whole band has put their heart and soul into this record. We're proud of it," says lead singer and songwriter Conrad Ellis. "It's a very personal album to me on the lyrical level, because it's all about the hurdles I've overcome in life, over the past two or three years, and coming out the other side of is as a person. It's all about growth and change. I think a lot of people will connect to it on a deep level, that's what I'm hoping anyway."

The title asks, "Do you want to be more than you are? Do you want more on the financial side of things? Do you just want more from life in general, or do you want more from your love life? You want more from your job. Do you think you deserve that in some areas?"

"'More Than This' doesn't come from a sense of entitlement," stresses Ellis. "It comes from wanting to make something of yourself and your life."

Remember You Must Die is the sound of extreme metal stalwarts SUICIDE SILENCE channeling the spirit of their classic albums like The Cleansing or No Time to Bleed and delivering a modern deathcore masterpiece.

With this record, theyre going deeper and darker, the songs often lyrically being a meditation on death and finality. Says the band: Every second the clock ticks we grow closer to death and what happens after our short bout with time is a total mystery. Remember You Must Die was written as a reminder to remember death and to not let time be our master. With artwork by acclaimed Necrosurrealist artist David Van Gough, SUICIDE SILENCE isnt merely looking back in anger. Theyre starring forward and setting the standard for metallic extremity in the process.

 

Oh Me Oh My [Clear Blue LP]
$24.99  24.99
chart cover
'Oh Me Oh My' is both elegant and ferocious. It is stirring in one moment and a balm the next. It details histories both global and personal. Lonnie Holley's harrowing youth and young manhood in the Jim Crow South are well-told at this point - his sale into a different home as a child for just a bottle of whiskey; his abuse at the infamous Mount Meigs correctional facility for boys; the destruction of his art environment by the Birmingham airport expansion. But Holley's music is less a performance of pain endured and more a display of perseverance, of relentless hope. Intricately and lovingly produced by LA's Jacknife Lee (The Cure, REM, Modest Mouse), there is both kinetic, shortwave funk that call to mind Brian Eno's 'My Life in the Bush of Ghosts' and the deep space satellite sounds of Eno's ambient works. But it's a tremendous achievement in sonics all it's own.It's also an achievement in the refinement of Holley's impressionistic, stream-of-consciousness lyrics. On the title track which deals with mutual human understanding", Holley is able to make a profound point as ever in far fewer phrases: "The deeper we go, the more chances there are, for us to understand the oh-me's and understand the oh-my's." Illustrious collaborators like Michael Stipe, Sharon Van Etten, Moor Mother and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver serve as not only as choirs of angels and co-pilots to give Lonnie's message flight but as proof of Lonnie Holley as a galvanizing, iconoclastic force across the music community.

Shalom makes strikingly direct music with such emotional openness and clarity that each track on her debut albumSublimationfeels like a quiet revelation. While the Brooklyn-based, South Africa-raised artist writes fearlessly personal songs about moments in her life combining the storytelling of Lucy Dacus with the urgency of Indigo De Souza, her honesty is so blunt its inviting. Her lyrics clear whatever tension there is to make room for catharsis. These 13 tracks are a reflection of the many sides of herself with stories of heartbreak, feeling like an outsider, self-medicating and partying, and ultimately choosing love over fear. While she paints the edges of indie rock, Shalom along with her collaborator Ryan Hemsworth (Quarter-Life Crisis) team up for challenging and vivid arrangements that are danceable, driving, and also delicate.

V [Legendary Edition 2LP]
$31.99  31.99
chart cover

Created between Palm Springs, California and Hilo, Hawai'i, V is the first double album from the Hawaiian-New Zealand singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Ruban Nielson's Unknown Mortal Orchestra band. Designed to play as one continuous movement and road-tested on dry California freeways, V is the definitive Unknown Mortal Orchestra car record. It's also the fifth full-length album Ruban has released in twelve years. Across fourteen sunbleached songs - written solo or with his brother Kody - Ruban draws from the rich traditions of West Coast AOR, yacht rock, weirdo pop and Hawaiian Hapa-haole music. Over a laidback blend of singalong anthems and cinematic instrumentals, he evokes blue skies, afternoons spent lounging by hotel swimming pools and the alluring darkness that lurks below perfect, pristine surfaces. It's a duality expressed in the dilapidated sunset blues and the saltcorroded soul Ruban explores through tracks like 'Layla' and 'Nadja. ' During the pandemic's early days, Ruban reunited with Kody at a cousin's wedding in Hawai'i. With assistance from their father, Chris Nielson (saxophone/flute) and longstanding Unknown Mortal Orchestra member Jake Portrait, they brought everything Ruban had been thinking about together. The result was V, due for release on March 3, 2023, through Jagjaguwar. When they talked about records that moved them in that spine-shivering manner, Ruban started thinking about the 70s AM radio rock and 80s pop songs that had lurked on the edge of his subconscious mind for most of his life. He wanted to write his version of records like that, leading to the two glorious uptempo singles Unknown Mortal Orchestra released in 2021, 'Weekend Run' and 'That Life'. However, the golden good times never last forever. Not long after, health issues began to plague his extended family. Putting his recordings aside, he helped his mother and his uncle move home from New Zealand and Portland to Hawai'i, and began dividing his time between Hawai'i and Palm Springs. During this period he reconnected with his relatives, reassessed his past, and started to look at things with fresh eyes. Hawai'i brought back memories of the darker side of his parents' lifestyle as entertainers. On those trips, he heard those classic AM radio rock records everywhere. They were inextricably intertwined with the palm trees, swimming pools, and glamorized hedonism he'd internalized from his childhood. There's a type of music in Hawai'i called Hapa-haole (Half white). You can hear it expressed in signature Unknown Mortal Orchestra style through the humid guitar-led atmosphere of V's penultimate song, 'I Killed Captain Cook'. Although the songs are presented in a traditional Hawaiian manner, they're mostly sung in English. Having been influenced by Hawaiian music since Unknown Mortal Orchestra's first album, Ruban saw a space for himself within the tradition. When he reflected on his success, he realised he had the responsibility and platform to represent Hapa-haole music on the global stage.

Im sorry, what? A double Say Hi LP without any vocals? Yep, youve heard right. I woke up one day not too long ago and decided I needed to take a break from words, so it seemed like a convenient time to attempt the all-instrumental-mega-synthesizer-record Ive been itching to make for a while. Now, I know what youre thinking, but these songs arent meandering, ambient sketches. Theyre just as focused and concise as Ive tried to make every other Say Hi record. Its just that the melodies here are expressed via dulcitones or vector-synthesis in lieu of my usual slightly-off-key vocal chords. Please dig in. It took me a while to get the formula right, but Im hopeful youll like it. Oh yeah, its also the 20th anniversary of Say Hi, so Ill be performing every past record around the release of the new one. -- Eric / Say Hi

The forthcoming album is set to include previously released singles mememe which was described in the story as "an ebullient carnival of ska-inflected verses that bounce off a chorus of thrash guitars and a squiggling synth line" along with the 90s Alt Rock-inspired Doritos & Fritos, which The Fader noted as "unlike any other Gecs track before it.

For those yet initiated: 100 gecs planted their flag on the proverbial pop culture moon with their 2019 debut album 1000 gecs, which was heralded by The New Yorker as, an impressively precise maximalist exercise with no rules and utterly unhinged in the best way possible by GQ. The innovative project captured the hearts of fans and critics alike - selling out all of their live shows to date along with The New York Times calling it, some of the savviest pop music of the year, and Rolling Stone dubbing it one of 2019s most exciting debuts. In just a few months following the release of 1,000 gecs, the band went from playing their first concert from inside the video game Minecraft to selling out shows across the country, proving that their rabid, rapidly multiplying fanbase doesn't only exist in the far corners of the internet. After their world tour was postponed in the summer of 2020, Brady and Les kept rolling with the release of 1000 gecs and The Tree of Clues, a rework of the original album featuring collaborations from the likes of A. G. Cook, Fall Out Boy, Charli XCX, Rico Nasty, as well as crowd sourced contributions by fans. The transformative release was described by The NME as a brain-melting, genre-crushing vision of pops future. Their subsequent international touring over the past two years has sent the unlikely wizard-cloaked pied pipers jumping from sold-out show to sold-out show, seemingly two steps ahead of the zeitgeist, not to mention having a blast while doing it.

Enveletration [White and Blue Hand-pour LP]
$33.98  33.98

Enveletration is a mix of the words: envelopment and penetration. Conceptually it is kind of a late-night space out thought trap around the perceived power dynamic of sexual organs, inside out body parts, matter density within a void, atomic structures that are analogous to solar systems, and other weird human-cosmic relations that will really eat your brain if you think on them for a while. Its basically imposter syndrome for all of humanity relative to the universe.

Creatrix [Coke Bottle Clear LP]
$26.99  26.99
chart cover

After spending the past 20 years in the studio, on concert stages all over the world and at the literal top of the charts, All-American Rejects co-founder Tyson Ritter didnt start Now More Than Ever in 2018 with the expectation it would turn into a real band but a real band is very much what it has become. In tandem with veteran musicians/songwriters/producers Scott Chesak and Izzy Fontaine, Ritter has begun a meaningful and exciting new chapter in his music career with Now More Than Evers debut album Creatrix, which will be released March 17, 2023, by Thirty Tigers.

To hear Ritter tell it, All-American Rejects relationship with the traditional music industry was in many ways the reason he was eager to try something different: simply making music with friends for fun, without any preconceived notions about what would, could or should happen next. In other words, no constraints, no A&Rs, no deadlines and no mandate to sound like anyone or anything other than themselves.

The fact that Ritter and Chesak have known each other for so long certainly helped jumpstart things, as the latter has been a multi-instrumentalist touring member of All-American Rejects since 2011. Chesak later segued into writing and producing for artists such as Weezer and Panic! At The Disco, a skill Ritter has long admired but had difficulty incorporating into his own creative process. As he began thinking about new music, he definitely knew he didnt want to write in the traditional sense with and for another artist in a studio. Scotty and I just got to talking and decided to write some tunes. It started that innocently.

We didnt have a name, or an idea of being a band, until probably a year after that, Chesak adds. We were kind of just writing for the purity of writing and trying to make something cool. Theres a huge folder of songs we made during that time that arent part of this project, but three or four of them showed us there was something cohesive there.

Having spent decades in the same musical scene, Ritter and Chesak were committed to a fresh approach when it came to the sound of their new work. We were kind of sick of guitar music, because we both come from the rock world, says Chesak, who handled bass, drums and keyboard duties during the sessions. So at first we made a rule: Fuck guitars. No guitars! Quickly they realized their beef wasnt with guitars per se, but rather the same old sound of the instrument. Enter Izzy Fontaine, who has worked closely behind the scenes with everyone from Taking Back Sunday and Glassjaw to Seal and Banks, and came up in the industry alongside many of the same bands as Ritter and Chesak.

Now More Than Ever shimmers with that spirit of freedom, its nine tracks gracefully surfing the peaks of the past four decades of pop and rock. These are the kinds of songs that used to be on the radio and certainly still should be today the ones that make you dance, shake your ass and forget about everything else for a while. The breathless electro-rock of D-E-A-D Together and the sultry power ballad Heart To Heart best embody that vibe, while horn players from Ozomatli add an instant dance party to Candle. The 80s synth-driven closer Never You started life as a Ritter acoustic song but was quickly transformed by Chesak and Fontaine into whats now the perfect soundtrack for a vintage slow dance prom scene.

To that end, Heels Up Head Over explores those themes with a tale about a werewolf and vampire getting married, while lyrical references to the ageless cool of Joan Jett and drunk, young romance make you feel right at home in Now More Than Evers company. This is a record where there was freedom in lyric, Ritter says. When youre on a major label for 15 years, you can succumb to trying to follow your last thing. That can seep into the music in a way thats so unconscious. The joy of this band is that its completely free of any oppressive overlords, ivory towers, approval processes or co-writes that have been manufactured, licked, stamped and thrown onto the assembly line.

Now More Than Ever is here to help make sure the pillars of pop and rock will never fall, and theyre prepared to go down believing. This is our little monolith, Ritter says. It might be six feet tall amongst giants, but its pure. And its truth for us. Its saccharine as fuck, and I love it.

 

Simple Things [Limited Edition Clear LP]
$28.99  28.99

Limited clear vinyl LP pressing. 2023 release by The Band of Heathens featuring 10 new songs.  

29:29 Split Vision [RSD Essential Indie Colorway Deep Purple LP]
$26.99  26.99
chart cover
Indie Exclusive * So named because the CD version originally clocked in time-wise at 29 minutes and 29 seconds, 29:29 Split Vision was recorded in December 1985, just after the band had split up, and they wanted to bring some closure to that period by recording the new songs they were working on at the time, alongside some of their older material that hadnt yet been properly recorded. Whilst the B-side hints at the underlying reasons the band split up the inevitable musical differences, with the three newest songs on the release literally worlds apart (excuse the pun) from their classic material - the five songs on the A-side are veritable belters, and Split Vision remains a frustratingly fascinating offering from this most unconventional of punk bands.  

EP-LP [RSD Essential Indie Colorway Deep Purple LP]
$26.99  26.99
chart cover
Indie Exclusive * The EP-LP was originally released in early 1986, after the band had split in November 1985, and collected for convenience the first four Subhumans EPs onto one disc. This includes the fiery six-track debut, Demolition War, that was first unleashed at the end of 1981, the powerful and provocative Reason For Existence and the perennial Religious Wars, both from 1982, and the intensely angry Evolution, from May 1983, whose title track rages so effectively against the senseless tragedy that is vivisection. Whilst never intended to be released as a full-length album when first recorded, most of the eighteen tracks on offer are still staples in the bands set to this day, and hang together very cohesively as an essential body of work.  

Time Flies + Rats [RSD Essential Indie Colorway Deep Purple LP]
$26.99  26.99
chart cover
Indie Exclusive * As the title suggests, this 1986 album compiled the eight-track Time Flies But Aeroplanes Crash 12, originally recorded and released in 1983, and the four-track EP, Rats, that had been recorded during the summer of 1984 and released in early 85. Rats might just be the bands most powerful and compelling release, the title track inspired by the Stop The City protests of 84 that sought to highlight the undeniable links between first world capitalism and third world poverty. Whilst its something of a mish-mash, with several rowdy live tracks and a few, very enjoyable re-recordings of old Stupid Humans songs (Stupid Humans being guitarist Bruces pre-Subhumans band), it contains two of the Subhumans best-loved tracks, Work Rest Play Die and Susan, the latter something of an oddity as its a stirring piano piece, with lyrics written by Steve Hamilton, an old friend of the band.

Featuring their most well-known track "I'd Love To Change The World", which regularly features in movies and TV shows, saw the band taking a more melodic direction from previous releases and showcased the band at their peak. This new (delayed) 50th Anniversary edition of the album features a brand new mix by the original producer/engineer, Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones/Emerson Lake & Palmer/Marillion), using the original 2" multitrack tapes. He has used modern day plug-ins that perfectly emulate and expand upon the original recording. The results are stunning. The second disc in this set features the original 1971 mix of the album. Both have been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.

Smash [RSD Essential Milky Clear LP]
$35.99  35.99
chart cover

RSD Essential 036 * Think Indie Exclusive * The Offspring preserve the essential ingredients of their chosen genre--guitars grinding out three chords, shouted vocals, and plenty of vitriol--and layer them over a melodic base that packs considerable popular appeal. The singles from Smash, the Offspring's breakthrough album, still receive considerable radio airplay: "Gotta Get Away," "Come Out and Play," and "Self Esteem." With these and Smash's 11 other tracks, the band chronicles the adolescent experience with clarity and surprisingly incisive wit. That pretty much describes all of their albums, but this is the one to get. It's got more shape than their earlier material and isn't as disturbingly poppy as their more recent recordings; it's the perfect blend of riffs and rage. Smash is the best-selling independent album of all time with over 20 million sold worldwide. Alongside Rancids And Out Come the Wolves and Green Days Dookie, Smash signaled the arrival of punk rock as a commercial force upon its initial release in 1994.

 

Life'll Kill Ya [RSD Essential Indie Colorway Smoking Skull LP]
$37.99  37.99
chart cover

First Time on Colored vinyl.Following a decade of stagnation and waning interest, legendary singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, who masked his soft side with his sarcastic, lyrical prose, entered the new millennium with his acclaimed 10th studio album Life'll Kill Ya. Though the album predated Zevon's fatal cancer diagnosis by two years, its title track, as well as standout cuts like "My Shit's Fucked Up" and "Don't Let Us Get Sick," brought the album critical praise as a "mournful lament on the aging process and the inevitable decay that accompanies it." Available now for the first time on colored vinyl. Ship To Shore PhonoCo's reissue of Life'll Kill Ya features expanded liner notes and rare photos from Jorge Caldern, Zevon's son, Jordan, and Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith. Other highlights include "Porcelain Monkey," which puts Elvis Presley in Zevon's sardonic crosshairs, a cover of Steve Winwood's "Back In The High Life Again" sounds as if it were written for Zevon, and "Fistful of Rain" is a melodious examination of the fickle nature of fame. Engineered as a comeback vehicle, co-produced by Paul Q. Kolderie and Sean Slade (the producing duo responsible for Radiohead's Pablo Honey), Zevon's songwriting collaborator Jorge Caldern added a lighthearted accent to Zevon's musical portraits of doom and gloom. Despite helping with a successful comeback, Life'll Kill Ya's content was revealed all too true when, in 2003, Zevon passed away of pleural mesothelioma. "I mean, the fact that life will kill you is just that," Zevon told Rolling Stone upon the album's release. "I think you have to spend a fair amount of time realizing that you will be, so that you'll remember to enjoy everything you possibly can every minute you're not. You always want to try and tell younger people that, which is very difficult because they don't really hear it because they feel a life has been imposed on them. And of course, they're absolutely correct."

Loneliness
$12.99  12.99
chart cover

Portland artist MAITAs latest offering, Loneliness is an unorthodox release for the prolific writer, in that the track listing is exactly the same as 2022s I Just Want to Be Wild For You. Following the release of IJWTBWFU, MAITA felt the urge to record a quiet, introspective record, allowing the same songs to be heard in a different light, closer to how they were originally written. The once bombastic Honey, Have I Lost It All, an ode to fearing writers block and obsolescence, comes across as gauzy yearning, while Pastel Concrete, shows up not as the jaunty surf-pop audiences are familiar with, instead a wistful reflection of the shallow depths of Southern California sunshine. Throughout the record, songwriter Maria Maita-Keppeler, accompanied only by her nylon string guitar, re-imagines I Just Want to Be Wild For You, cementing her place among the echelon of todays greatest songwriters.

Say What You Like [LP]
$26.98  28.98
chart cover
Since the release of his self-titled debut 15 years ago, Doug Paisley has earned accolades for unflinchingly self-reflective songs delivered with simplicity and beauty. The critical response to his sophomore release, Constant Companion, underlined this quality. MOJO, naming the album one of the top ten of 2010, found in its rare kind of purity evidence that an anti-star is born. While Rolling Stone deemed it to be a nearly perfect singer-songwriter record, UNCUT described it as sure-footed and agelessuncluttered, sad and unerringly lovely. The quiet and contemplative nature of his last record, Starter Home, continued this trend, earning it a place in the New Yorkers top ten albums of 2018. Dougs new record, Say What You Like, underscores his prowess as a songwriter, while exploring new sonic terrain with producer Afie Jurvanen (aka Bahamas). Distilled from more than 250 songs penned by Paisley over the last decade, the 11 tracks selected by Jurvanen combine folk, country and pop sensibilities to showcase his rich sense of melody and remarkable way with words. This is Doug at his best honest, exposed, searching comforting in his ability to communicate the universal in the struggles of the individual. In meditations on the disappointments and shortcomings of love, Paisley looks hard at middle age, and facing the time when looking young is getting old. Were always somewhere in-between forever and walking away / well spend a lifetime, you and me, day by day. One cannot help but get the sense from these songs that Paisley simply must write it's about emotional survival and the process of working through. As a songwriter these days, Paisley reflected earlier this year, theres very little to gain and very little to lose so I am working only from the heart, theres no other motive. It shows.

It is their third record with producer Josh Kaufman, and most expansive record yet, while also being unmistakably a THS record. The band wrote these songs mostly in 2021, and a few have been part of recent live shows. Craig Finn says These are some of the most cinematic songs in The Hold Steady catalog, and the record was a joy to make. I feel like we went somewhere we havent before, which is a very exciting thing for a band that is two decades in.

The Brooklyn-based band has performed in all 50 states in the USA and throughout Canada, Europe and Australia. The Hold Steady music has appeared across movies, advertising and TV, including on Game Of Thrones and Billions, in addition to writing original material for Seth Meyers cartoon The Awesomes and Meyers 2019 stand-up comedy special Lobby Baby.

Released in early 2021, The Hold Steadys most recent record Open Door Policy, achieved the bands highest chart position of any album, debuting #6 on the Billboard Current Album Chart. Vulture gushed the record expands their horizons, and gives the Hold Steady new heft and variety without undercutting the sharpness of the hooks or singer-guitarist Craig Finns heart-wrenching novelistic lyricism.

The 20th Anniversary of The Hold Steady will see an expanded collection of activities and music release to celebrate the milestone with fans. Year five of The Weekender, The Hold Steadys annual visit to the UK with a 3-night stop in London, occurs March 10-12, 2023.

The Hold Steady is: Bobby Drake (drums), Craig Finn (vocals), Tad Kubler (guitar, vocals), Franz Nicolay (keyboards, vocals), Galen Polivka (bass), and Steve Selvidge (guitar, vocals).

Obzen: 15th Anniversary Remastered Edition [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Black/White LP]
$34.99  34.99
chart cover

Formed in 1987 in Ume, Sweden, Meshuggah have gone on to be called one of the ten most important hard and heavy bands by Rolling Stone and have earned the respect and admiration from fans and musicians alike.

It is impossible to talk about experimental or avantgarde metal without mentioning this truly groundbreaking act: MESHUGGAH mix ultra-complicated rhythmic patterns with massive riffs and aggressive growls, combining Death Metal, Mathcore, Thrash and Progressive Metal to create their unique style.

The year 2023 now marks the 15th anniversary of the bands milestone: "ObZen".

Yet another masterpiece of diversity and surprises as a whole, the album contains the bands absolute massive hit, Bleed the song that tore through the industry like a shockwave and had fans and musician peers alike completely speechless. You could say that "ObZen" is some sort of a best of album of the bands early works combined with fresh, new songs at that moment in time but thats only half the truth. Compared to some of the gloomy lava realm of subconcious terror of previous releases, "ObZen" is a big butt kick. Some parts are still slo-mo groove infernos, but others, like the opener "Combustion", are high speed-massacres like the band never did before. Pure technical ass-kicking mayhem!

The re-release of this masterpiece comes in a beautifully enhanced digipak and stunning new vinyl colors, to complete every collectors dream.

And paired with a B-Side rarity, "The Twistable, Turnable Man Returns", Andrew's tribute to the Shel Silverstein poem.

 

Shabang

Scott McMicken has always thrived on switching things up. As a founding member of Philadelphia rock mainstays Dr. Dog, McMicken and his bandmates consistently explored new sounds and new ways of writing songs across 10 gleefully eclectic albums before their 2021 hiatus. While McMicken has quietly released solo projects via cassette and vinyl on his own label Press On Records, for his latest effort, hes done something hes only done once before: started a band. With Shabang, out March 31, 2023, via ANTI-, comes the debut album from Scott McMicken and THE EVER-EXPANDING, and hes made some of his freest and most adventurous music yet: a wonderfully collabora- tive collection of songs that feel lived in and true. By being present and living with these musicians (quite literally: McMicken and collaborator Michael Nau stayed in tents outside the studio) united under one com- mon goal, Shabang is full of life and endlessly candid. I knew nothing good will come of this unless I am totally free and away from any pres- sure and pretense, says McMicken. Such an incredible spectrum of emotion passed through me while making this album. There was this lightness and un-self seriousness. I feel like music and life cruises at that spot: everybody was so wholeheartedly invested and open.

Different Game [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Cyan Blue LP]
$32.99  32.99
chart cover

Different Game, is the long-awaited follow-up to their critically-acclaimed 2015 release Still Got That Hunger, which charted in Billboards Top 100 and SoundScanned over 12k units in America alone.

The band began working on this album in 2019, shortly after their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction, but it was delayed by the Pandemic - they strongly prefer to record together and capture a live band performance in the studio (just as they had to do in the 1960s). They were not willing to make this album remotely.

This album is the current-day Zombies were meant to make. It has the vintage qualities that made them stand out in the 1960s, yet still sounds modern, and reflects their continued development as songwriters and musicians. 9 of the 10 tracks are written by Rod Argent, with the closer The Sun Will Rise Again by Colin Blunstone. Rod produced the album (with engineer Dale Hanson), which includes a small string ensemble on 3 tracks. Rod arranged the strings for 2 of the songs (Different Game and You Could Be My Love), with the 3rd (I Want To Fly) by Chris Gunning (who scored the legendary string arrangements for Colins 1971 debut solo album One Year).

Circles EP [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Whiskey Smoke Vinyl]

In a time when the popular choice is to chase the double yellow line down the road to country radio, Boy Named Banjo thrives on its fringes. The Nashville-raised five-piece is a fusion of contemporary country, Americana and folk-rock stacked on a foundation of bluegrass. The band, which has been together in some iteration since members were in high school, includes Barton Davies (banjo), Ford Garrard (bass/standing bass), Sam McCullough (drums) Willard Logan (mandolin, acoustic/electric guitar) and William Reames (acoustic guitar/harmonica). Reames and Logan played in a middle school garage rock band together, but it wasn't until Reames met Davies in high school that Boy Named Banjo started taking shape. Garrard and McCullough joined later and together the five guys comprise the band Boy Named Banjo that we know today. Boy Named Banjo has crafted a sound that incorporates an energetic blend of country, bluegrass, alt-rock, and folk-pop telling their stories through an honest, emotional, roots-driven perspective. In April 2020, Boy Named Banjo signed a record deal with Mercury Records Nashville and released their debut EP, Circles, the following year. Boy Named Banjo spent 2022 on the road playing some of country musics largest festivals including Dierks Bentleys Seven Peaks and Country Jam, Kip Moores Fire on Wheels Tour, they made their CMA Fest debut playing at the Ascend Amphitheatre Nighttime Concert, and played a sold-out hometown show at Nashvilles Brooklyn Bowl. The band most recently released the tracks Heart In Motion and Heart Attack, and is currently prepping its next project to be released in spring of this year.

You Only Get A Few [LP]
$26.99  26.99
chart cover

For Upstate, the past three years have been a litany of transitions as members Mary Webster, Melanie Glenn, Harry DAgostino and Dylan McKinstry patiently navigated the unfolding hurdles presented by some of lifes most pivotal moments. Amid a whirlwind of marriages, babies, funerals, spiritual awakenings, mourning and celebration, was a long, uncertain pause. Amid the passage, Upstate embraced the chance to make a record that could touch on every corner of their lives, a deeply honest portrait. Indeed, You Only Get A Few, the bands third studio album due March 31 on Royal Potato Family, is a collection of lilting indie folkten songs blossoming from uncertainty and creative collaboration. Shedding old expectations, the album is most authentic to who the group is now, as each member leaned into their most authentic expression of themselves.

Beginning with a long exhale, You Only Get a Few leads into the lo-fi scratchy tape opening of Lovers & Friends that feels almost archival, as if were dusting off something half-forgotten. The song itself is about recognizing the preciousness of friendship. Many of the albums songs are set with field recordings made by the band, drawing us into the space from which the songs were created. The simple and elegant arrangement of Catalpa begins with the backdrop of spring rain that subtly transitions into the familiar sounds of a summer night. Glenn and Websters voices glide over a serene acoustic guitar, singing Cold march, and I dream of June. Its a song about memory, the seasons, and moments of life that arent quite solid enough to grip. Auntie serves as a reminder to listen to the advice of others and ourselves. Its drenched in harmony and bold, driving rhythms complemented by the hypnotic, colorful swirl of electric guitar, low-bellied bass, hammond organ, synthesizer, and clarinet. And while much of You Only Get A Few is inspired by the bands real-life experiences, there are also moments of spontaneous fiction, an idea propelled into something tangible. The Harry DAgostino-penned Pattys Diner is one such instance, as he tells the story from the perspective of a grieving sister, intent on realizing her late siblings dream.

On their third album, Upstate prods and searches, stews and savors, and they let go of as much as they carry throughout each transition. Its as if theres a collective breath, and, just as the album begins with an exhale, You Only Get A Few ends with one, too.

 

5K EP [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Goldfish Vinyl]
$20.98  22.98

Brooklyn-based musician and producer Barrie Lindsay,known simply as Barrie, has a passion for creating left-of-center pop music. She spends her days writing songs and tinkering in Logic, stockpiling her creations in a vast archive offolders and hard drives. When it came time to select thesongs for her sophomore LP, Barbara,she narrowed it downto sixteen tracks. As the record came together, it becameclear that there would be two separate projects - the firstbeing Barbara,an emotionally charged collection of songsdealing with the loss of a parent, the love of a new partner, andfinding one's own identity. The remaining five tracks, whichwere more light-hearted and o the cu, were compiled into anew project titled5K.

As an avid runner, Barrie named the EP after the common footrace. The aptly titled lead single, "Races," is a delightfulsynth-pop track in a unique 12/8 time, built around a bombastic drum kit and giddy key riffs. "Nocturne Interlude" acts as asegue between Barbaraand 5K,showcasing a hauntingmelody amidst dark brass-like synths. Second half highlight"Ghost World" has a distorted guitar riffand classic drumpattern that evokes a forgotten 90's radio b-side. The songwas recorded entirely by Barrie herself, serving as her ownband on guitar, bass, keys, and drum kit. Even though mostpeople would finish listening to the project front to backbefore finishing a 5k run, the short, sweet, and melodically richEP begs to be replayed over and over. With 5K,Barrie show-cases her versatility as an artist, closing the loop between thesounds found on her debut LP Happy To Be Hereand herfollow-up Barbara.

Following their 1991 debut album, Mr. Hood, KMD shed one member leaving two remaining - Subroc and his brother, Zev Love X (better known today as MF DOOM). Originally scheduled for release in 1994, their sophomore album Black Bastards showed clear progression from their debut. It was a truly amazing record, both sonically and lyrically, full of youthful creativity and tinged with the stresses of growing up as Black men in urban America. Songs like the lead single "What A N*gga Know", the slippery, bass-driven "Get U Now", and the album's title track explore Black consciousness viewed through young-but-experienced eyes. Musically alternating between bouncy and raw, the tracks gave the MC's the springboard they needed to express themselves clearly.Sadly, Subroc would face a sudden and untimely death just as the duo were finishing the album, and their label Elektra Records unceremoniously shelved the project in the eleventh hour, due to controversy surrounding the album's provocative cover art. Zev Love X tried for years to release the album on other labels, but he was continually met with dead ends. It would be 6 years before the album would see the light of day with an official release.

People Talk is the album Lauren Morrow was born to create. The Nashville-based, Atlanta-raised singer-songwriter has spent the better part of the last fifteen years cultivating her sound, pouring in a variety of influences, and honing her live show until the sound felt unabashedly her own. After spending more than a decade as the frontwoman of popular Americana band The Whiskey Gentry, Lauren stepped out with a 2018 self-titled debut EP and received widespread acclaim. She landed on many Best Of year-end lists from Rolling Stone to Garden & Gun, filmed an episode for PBS' "Bluegrass Underground" and toured the US playing festivals such as Pickathon and Bristol Rhythm & Roots. Mixed by Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White, Phish) and Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, Shania Twain), People Talk finds Morrow exploring her beyond-country influences like 90s Alternative, Britpop, and 80s New Wave bands with moody, brutally honest lyrical content and rock n roll attitudes; all with Morrow's signature soprano and vulnerable vibrato and a host of atypically-Americana vibes and tones. The end result is a patiently cultivated and refined sound not unfamiliar to fans, but a pure expression of everything Morrow is made of-- not just what we've seen so far.

Isaiah Rashad returns with The House Is Burning, a mesmerizing album full of emotional raps, dream-like production, and guest appearances from Lil Uzi Vert, SZA, Duke Deuce, 6LACK, Smino, and more. Its been over five years since the release of his critically acclaimed album The Suns Tirade, but this new record reaffirms Rashads status as one of raps most gifted storytellers. The project is varied and diverse, showcasing Rashads comfort in a host of different themes and moods. He veers between reflective and braggadocious as he unpacks troubling thoughts and ephemeral thrills over soundscapes from Kal Banx, Hollywood Cole, Kenny Beats, and more. On standout From the Garden, Rashad flaunts an intricate flow as he trades quick-fire flexes with Lil Uzi Vert, making for a song that begs to be shouted. The single Headshots (4r Da Locals), by contrast, finds Rashad in an introspective space, murmuring as he reflects on battles with addiction and past trauma. Other tracks, like Wat U Sed offer up dazed croons and low-key bounce. Each song is distinct from the last, forming a vibrant tapestry of sounds. The range speaks to the breadth of his experienceall the lessons learned and life lived in the five years between The Suns Tirade and The House Is Burning. Sifting through his psyche and further refining his raps, Rashads latest represents a new peak for the gifted artist. This album was difficult, he says. Music is where I go to express myself. Its what I do to close a chapter. You know whats crazy? Im not even ashamed to say it, I really think my albums arent different from each other. Its just me every time and eventually, one of my albums will become a classic.

It's one of the things I'm most proud of: the way it sounds. " On "Last Rites," which conjures Cure-like drum beats, Andrew pens an ode to his wife and considers how love songs evolve with long-term relationships. "These last few pandemic years, I think people's bonds have either deepened or fractured. 'Last Rites' is reflective of a connection that goes so much deeper than even I can put into words. "

Rat Saw God [Purple LP]
$25.98  27.98
chart cover

A Wednesday song is a quilt. A short story collection, a half-memory,a patchwork of portraits of the American south, disparate momentsthat somehow make sense as a whole. Karly Hartzman, the songwriter/vocalist/guitarist at the helm of the project, is a story collector asmuch as she is a storyteller: a scholar of people and one-liners. RatSaw God, the Asheville quintets new and best record, is ekphrastic butautobiographical and above all, deeply empathetic. Across the albums tentracks Hartzman, guitarist MJ Lenderman, bassist Margo Shultz, drummerAlan Miller, and lap/pedal steel player Xandy Chelmis build a shrine tominutiae. Half-funny, half-tragic dispatches from North Carolina unfurlingsomewhere between the wailing skuzz of Nineties shoegaze and classiccountry twang, that distorted lap steel and Hartzmans voice slicingthrough the din.

Rat Saw God is an album about riding a bike down a suburban stretchin Greensboro while listening to My Bloody Valentine for the first time onan iPod Nano, past a creek that runs through the neighborhood riddledwith broken glass bottles and condoms, a front yard filled with brokenand rusted car parts, a lonely and dilapidated house reclaimed by kudzu.Four Lokos and rodeo clowns and a kid who burns down a corn field.Roadside monuments, church marquees, poppers and vodka in a plasticwater bottle, the shit you get away with at Jewish summer camp, strangesentimental family heirlooms at the thrift stores. The way the South humsalive all night in the summers and into fall, the sound of high schoolfootball games, the halo effect from the lights polluting the darkness. Itsnot really bright enough to see in front of you, but in that stretch of inkyvoid somehow you see everything.

The songs on Rat Saw God dont recount epics, just the everyday.Theyre true, theyre real life, blurry and chaotic and strange which isin-line with Hartzmans own ethos: Everyones story is worthy, she says,plainly. Literally every life story is worth writing down, because peopleare so fascinating.

 

Winner [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Clear w/Black Swirl LP]
$25.99  25.99
chart cover

Overcoats, the inventive duo compromised of JJ Mitchell and Hana Elion, have announced their forthcoming eagerly awaited new studio album, Winner, set for release on April 7th via their imprint, Never Fall Back Records, distributed by Thirty Tigers.

The new album Winner was produced by two-time Grammy-winner Daniel Tashian (a co-producer on Kacey Musgravess widely acclaimed Golden Hour), and exhibits a graceful musicality first displayed on Overcoats debut album YOUNG (a 2017 release that earned praise from the likes of The New York Times and NPR Music, who placed it at #4 on its best-of-the-year list). As a bold departure from YOUNGs sparse electronic pop and the atmospheric indie-rock of The Fight (a 2020 release that nabbed them a Breakthrough Artist nomination from the American Association of Independent Music), the album encompasses a warm and luminous sound sculpted from a tightly curated mix of elements: earthy guitar tones, elegantly rugged textures, and the duos heavenly harmonies. In staying true to their origins, Overcoats also incorporated frenetic beats that perfectly echo New Yorks pulsating electricity.

In November, Overcoats released their first new song since 2021, Horsegirl, also featured on the upcoming new album. Produced and co-written with Day Wave, the lilting, dreamy Horsegirl sees Overcoats crafting a hypnotic, hum-in-the-sun pop song. The video was directed by Overcoats and Casey Pierce and sees the pair in the lush fields of Amy Grants Tennessee farm doing a single take sing-a-long, wearing prairie inspired vintage dresses from Nashvilles Starstruck Vintage.

Having previously toured with such notable artists as Mitski, Maggie Rogers, Cold War Kids, Tennis and The Japanese House, Overcoats look forward to returning to the road this spring. 2023 promises to be a significant year for the acclaimed band, with more new music to be unveiled over the coming weeks.

Ever since their emergence in early 2016 HMLTD, avid advocates of the Gesamtkunstwerk, have always striven to give audiences more. On their wildly ambitious second album, they are realising these aims on a truly epic scale.Created over the course of two years with a cast of 47 musicians including a gospel choir and a 16-piece string orchestra The Worm is less a concept album than a fully-fledged musical universe, transcending genre and medium. Set in a disorienting anachronistic version of Medieval England as steeped in dystopian sci-fi fantasy as it is folklore and Old English mythology its part political polemic, part deeply moving psychological journey.Though always admired for their defiantly genre-agnostic approach, The Worm sees HMLTD pushing sonic experimentation to a whole new level, from dissonant free jazz riffing to vintage soul and English folk fusions to rock opera. Major musical touchpoints included Stravinskys Rite Of Spring, Pink Floyd and Nina Simones rendition of Sinnerman and references for the world of The Worm included 14th century texts The Canterbury Tales and The Decameron, Aleksey Germans 2013 sci-fi film Hard To Be A God, Bergmans The Seventh Seal, Tarkovskys Andrei Rublev and the hopeful narrative arc of 90s mecha anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion.

POWERWOLF are undoubtedly one of the most celebrated and successful current heavy metal bands. Multiple #1 album chart entries, already 9 gold and platinum records, huge sold out arena shows, as well as headline slots at the biggest festivals have paved their way. In less than 20 years of band history, POWERWOLF has made it to the very highest league of heavy metal. The constant superior quality of their numerous releases, ecstatic fans at all live shows and enthusiastic critics are representative of POWERWOLF.

Just in time for the highest Christian holiday, Easter 2023, another highlight of the band's discography, Interludium, will be released on April 07, 2023. The new release features six new studio tracks, including the single "Sainted By The Storm", which was already celebrated on the band's exhilarating Wolfsnchte 2022 headline tour, as well as one of the most intense tracks in the band's history, "My Will Be Done". The new tracks unite POWERWOLF's musical trademarks and put the strengths of the band as a grown unit in the foreground. Charles and Matthew Greywolf's grandiose guitar playing, Attila Dorn's epochal voice, Roel van Helden's intensity on drums and Falk Maria Schlegel's omnipresent and recognizable organ come together perfectly.

Interludium also features gems and rarities from the band's history. "Stronger Than The Sacrament" and "Living On A Nightmare" were only available on strictly limited samplers and tour-EP-singles from 2012 and 2015. "Midnight Madonna" was released on the Earbook edition of The Sacrament Of Sin, while fans from France will know "Bte du Gvaudan" as the French version of the hit single "Beast Of Gevaudan" from an exclusive single version.

The 10 songs on the special album were produced by the outstanding quartet of Joost van den Broek, Jacob Hansen, Jens Bogren and Fredrik Nordstrm. The impressive artwork was crafted by the exceptional Zsofia Dankova once again.

Interludium comes in several editions, most of them containing another exciting surprise: the bonus album Communio Lupatum II, where eleven befriended bands like Eisbrecher, Electric Callboy, Korpiklaani and Rage cover some of the biggest hits of POWERWOLFs career. More limited versions also contain the second bonus album Interludium Orchestrale, containing eight orchestral versions of the album tracks.

Arriving shortly after their very first North American shows, one of the biggest shows of the bands career - the (Un-)Holy Easter Mass in Cologne (album release show) - and before several headline summer festival appearances, with Interludium, the whole world will once again be under the spell of the wolfpack in 2023!
