UNPRECEDENTED SH!T [INDIE EXCLUSIVE COKE BOTTLE CLEAR LP]
$29.98  29.98
chart cover

These days, every artists album needs to have a story. The music cant speak for itself.

But after 22 records, why cant Ani DiFrancos work speak for itself? Yes, her forthcoming album is shaped by stories ones about reproductive freedom, the double-edged sword of the pandemic, identity and ever-evolving belief systems that have shaped each of its 11 songs. It was paramount to the folk-feminist hero that listeners not be saddled with preconceived notions while diving into her 23rd album Unprecedented Sh!t. I believe there is a rhyme and a reason as to why these songs have come together in this way now and I want people to experience this album as a journey, a piece of art, without being influenced by a cacophony of surrounding narratives.

While many of DiFrancos albums were made more insularly, shes opened herself up to collaboration in recent years. For 21 of DiFrancos 22 albums, she opted to self-produce. With Unprecedented Sh!t, she wanted to try working with a producer and tapped BJ Burton, who produced one of her favorite albums, Bon Ivers 22, A Million.

The title Unprecedented Sh!t is not only representative of how much of a sonic departure the 11-track album is from Anis other work, but also a political and social commentary on the current state of the world. We find ourselves in unprecedented times in many ways, faced with unprecedented challenges. So, our responses to them and our discourse around them, need to rise to that level.

ARTIST QUOTE:I learned the traditional song Going to Georgia from a few different places so my version is something of a collage. There are a number of variants out there. Ralph Stanley played a version of it, as did the great song collector and revivalist/interpreter Paul Clayton. My main source was an early 1980s field recording of The Eller Family of Hiawassee, Georgia, brought to us by artist-documentarians Art and Margo Rosenbaum via their wonderful Folkways anthology Folk Visions & Voices: Traditional Music and Song in Northern Georgia.
 

Fool's Parade [Orange Dream LP]
$28.98  28.98
chart cover

The color green can represent many things. It can symbolize money, of course, but also weed. And envy. It implies newness, the rebirth of spring, but it can also evoke illness and infection. Its an apt name for a band that is defined by its adaptability, by its knack for doing many different things all at once. On the Color Greens second full-lengththeir first as a quartetthey ground their cosmic jams in earthy melodies, drawing from 60s SoCal folk-r0ck, 70s classic rock, 80s underground rock, 90s psychedelic dance-rock, and many other sources. In the two years the band has been touring, it has already shared stages with a range of groups that reflect both the sophistication and the wild malleability of their sound, including Fuzz, Kikagaku Moyo, Circles Around the Sun, and Young Guv. When we play live, I dont really know whats going to happen, says guitarist Noah Kohll. You really have no idea what youre going to get with this band, which keeps things fresh for us and maybe makes the live experience special. Adds drummer Corey Rose, One thing about this band that I really appreciate is that we can camouflage into any environment or any show. We can play with Hiss Golden Messenger and lean into that funky country vibe, or we can play with the Brian Jonestown Massacre and get evil. We all love a variety of music, so lets not put ourselves in a box. That wild, mercurial quality is reflected on Fools Parade, a meditation on loss, grief, confusion, frustration, and the clarity to which they all lead. Their songs are vehicles for self-explorations, not just a means of putting their feelings into lyrics and notes but molding them, night after night, into different shapes to get different insights. I feel like thats the endless spiritual journey of this band, says Madden. Theres always this thing that is mysterious, that you can never put your finger on. Music is a way to give yourself ground within the unknown. Its a way to convene with something outside yourself, whether you call that the muse or God or the collective unconsciousness or whatever. Maybe thats relatable to people because we live in a very noisy and confusing world. Everybodys trying to find that ground.

Hold My Beer, Vol. 3 + 4 [LP]
$24.98  24.98
chart cover
Country music's Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen are back with more tunes, announcing that their EP Hold My Beer Vol. 4 will arrive on July 12. The latest entry to their Hold My Beer canon, Vol. 4 contains six songs exploring love, nostalgia, life on the road and, of course, drinking. Following the release, the two friends will hit the road on the HOLD MY BEER TOUR beginning in July. And the guys will be offering Vol. 3 and Vol. 4 combined on a limited edition LP and CD. Both veterans of the Country music scene, Rogers and Bowen decided to team up in a professional capacity in 2015 when they released Hold My Beer, Vol. 1. Their newest project, much like the first EP and 2020's Vol. 2, is a collection of twang-heavy tracks made for drinking, dancing and reminiscing, with Rogers and Bowen trading off as they sing over steel guitars and fiddles. "Hold my Beer Vol. 4 is finally here," Rogers shares. "I absolutely love making these records with Wade and am so proud of these songs — we wrote every single one. Listen responsibly. Cheers!" "If you don’t have fun listening to these songs, I feel sorry for ya," Bowen adds. "No reason we should have this much fun 'working!' I hope you love these songs as much as we love making them. Grab some friends and drink a few for us! Cheers!" Rogers and Bowen's Hold My Beer projects are the culmination of over two decades of friendship, the initial collaboration an unplanned happenstance that has since blossomed into a thriving outlet of artistic expression that "offers up a lightheartedness — a departure from their more heartache-ridden solo work — and the fine art of breaking open a cold one with buddies," as declared by American Songwriter. With Hold My Beer Vol. 4 and their HOLD MY BEER TOUR Rogers and Bowen will only continue their "pitcher perfect" partnership.

Love Direction, the follow-up to 2022's Sticking With It (which landed at #1 on the Billboard Current R&B Albums Chart) is the band's fourth full-length studio album. Despite the title, this latest record isn't a collection of straightforward love songs, but an investigation into the different angles and challenges that relationships can bring. Expanding on the album's theme, Eddy notes "These aren't 'Love Songs' in the most obvious sense. They deal with the middle stages, the hinterlands of love and life together - figuring someone out and what they need, learning how to communicate, and examining your own faults. We set out to write music that felt more grown, a little wiser. The songs that emerged all pointed in the Love Direction.

$24.98  24.98
chart cover

Let us advance our mortal bodies up
Where hearts and minds will go
Lets walk, lets roll.

So sings Madeleine Peyroux on the upbeat title track of her captivating tenth album, Lets Walk, the acclaimed singer-songwriters most assured, courageous work to date. Powered by the distinctive, honeyed croon that delivered her from the Paris streets to concert halls, these ten unabashedly personal songs, all co-written by the versatile Peyroux, deftly interweave jazz, folk, and chamber pop, with themes ranging from the confessional to the political, from whimsy to yearning. In every note, Peyroux digs deep, rendering this exquisite work with the disarming grace and gravitas of an artist in peak form.

Lets Walk was a long time coming, but well worth the wait. Following Peyrouxs 2018 album, Anthem, the enforced isolation of the global pandemic made any real-time community gathering impossible. From a creative standpoint, however, Covid offered Peyroux a silver lining: she seized the opportunity to hunker down with longtime collaborator, multi-instrumentalist Jon Herington (Steely Dan, Lucy Kaplansky). The pair reflected on the seismic era at hand and wrote and re-wrote in what Peyroux calls a shadow of reckoning. When multi-Emmy-and-Grammy-winning producer Elliott Scheiner (Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles) heard a sampling of the new material, including Lets Walk, he mandated no covers for the album. The longtime studio veteran knew the time was ripe to highlight Peyrouxs incisive, often topical lyrics meshed with Heringtons ear for melody and arrangements.

Album opener Find True Love came to Peyroux during the George Floyd murder trial. Like Lets Walk, Find True Love is an irresistible entreaty to join a journey. First stop: New Orleans. I was searching for solace in the American landscape, Peyroux says. I was imagining the first step toward healing, if there could be a future worth living for. The last line of each verse is a striking, yet inarguable Cornel West quote: [One must] learn how to die. Heringtons pulsing, finger-picked acoustic guitar, interwoven with Andy Ezrins shimmering keys, propel Peyrouxs message of steadfast hope in the face of encroaching darkness. Says Peyroux: The ideas in this song let me imagine a place where I can become a better me.

An astonished Peyroux says the title track came to her in a dream including the words, the rhythm, and the form a rarity for her. The lyric refers to mass mobilization of marchers for civil rights around the world, Peyroux says. A voluntarily unified action in support of a humanitarian ideology. Within two days, Herington fleshed out Lets Walk with gospel textures, organ, and a steady, infectious beat, enlisting buoyant harmonies from Grammy-winning artist Catherine Russell (David Bowie, Rosanne Cash), along with vocalists supreme Cindy Mizelle (Bruce Springsteen) and Keith Fluitt (Patti LaBelle, Michael Jackson). Their churchy call-and-response with Peyrouxs burnished lead elevate Please Come On Inside and Blues for Heaven into a revival of emotion.

How I Wish is Peyrouxs response to the horrific murders over a period of three months in 2020 of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmad Arbery. This melancholy, minor key waltz acknowledges her privilege, and her anguish. 2020 was the year I woke up, she says. Immersing herself in the work of such writers as Cornel West, she was struck by Wests repeated references to Black musicians as Love Warriors, responding to oppression with game-changing music: Nina Simone, Louis Armstrong, Marian Anderson, to name a few. These are my teachers and my heroes, Peyroux says. African American music has been the one constant, true path in my life.

One such mentor was Dan William Fitzgerald, aka Showman Dan, for whom Peyroux wrote a rollicking ode after her longtime friend passed away in 2017. As leader of the Lost Wandering Blues and Jazz Band, the American-born expat took a very young, inexperienced Peyroux under his wing to perform across Europe, as she says, on the street, in the underground, the public square, jazz clubs, restaurants, and private homes of dukes and duchesses. Like many Black artists before him, Fitzgerald found he could get more artistic traction in France than he could in his homeland and conveyed his love of street theater to Peyroux, whod moved with her mother to Paris at age 12.

During her years in Paris, Peyroux witnessed the custom of bourgeois parents gifting their young adult children with an apartment. For the satirical Et Puis (And Then), Peyroux, fluent in French, assumes the role of that young adult as one both blissfully ignorant of their privilege and consciously disgusted by its injustice.

For Nothing Personal, Peyroux not only bravely grapples head-on with sexual assault both her own, and others she offers an alternative to incarceration, which she maintains is a ridiculous waste of time. Rather, the perpetrator should learn every aspect of the consequence of their actions and be party to recovery in whatever way is welcome by the victim. Heringtons mournful, insistent piano and acoustic guitar recall the intensity of Plastic Ono Band, with Peyrouxs painful-yet-resolved vocals intimate and beautifully unadorned.

Peyroux changes gears with the playful, Caribbean-flavored Me and the Mosquito, and rapid-fire spoken-word album closer, Take Care. The former, inspired by Hank Williams hilarious classic Fly Trouble, offers perhaps the most humanist treatise ever on what Peyroux calls the elusive singular mosquito which can ruin a nights sleep. For the latter, Peyroux prayed to the spoken-word genius of Linton Kwesi Johnson to deliver a heartfelt advisory re: avoiding the pervasive toxins in food, clothing, and modern culture in general. I dont recommend a morose existence, she recites over Heringtons ska-flavored guitar and sampled marimba, but life is an art and perspective needs distance / But ya gotta get lean and scrappy and fight / If youre gonna begin to get livin right.

When the road beckons this spring, Peyrouxs community of loyal fans is in for a singular treat. Thanks to serendipitous delay, her collaborators Herington and Scheiner, and the very perspective she shares in Take Care, the spare, slow burning Lets Walk material will be set free in venues around the world, effortlessly dovetailing with Peyrouxs beloved versions of Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Tom Waits (to name a few) classics. As she learned in her busking years, a great song can wield powerful magic, and inspire the best in any type of crowd. With Lets Walk, Madeleine Peyroux takes full ownership of that magic.

Your Own Becoming [Black Ice LP]
$25.98  25.98
chart cover

We began writing this record on New Years Day 2023. With that sentiment we felt like it was destined to be a totally new experience and we truly put our best feet forward. Since MILLY began, it was pretty much just myself writing everything but with this record it was much different. We solidified our lineup and we worked as hard as we could together, meeting 2 - 3 times a week for 6 months and playing music as a band because we wanted the record to have that feel. It sounds silly saying it that way as we are a rock band, but we had never spent more than a week or two actually preparing in a room before recording in the past. Everything previously was done very on the fly whereas this record we tried as many things as we coul d and used our heads. We talked about music a lot, and the way we wanted people to feel when they heard our new stuff -- the way that we feel when we listen to our favorites. We kept pondering if we could reinvent the wheel for ourselves in some way, even if minor.. just to feel a bit different and fresh. A large majority of the songs originated from jams that we recorded in our practice space and then I took home and chopped up. Once Sonny got involved, he really helped us structure everything all together nicely. We took rehearsing and pre production extremely seriously the way Nirvana did before tracking Nevermind and we are very proud of the raw live feeling that this album has. Though we are now a 4 piece band, for this process it was the 3 of us (Brend an, Yarden, Conner) so a lot of trios were in the back of our heads for inspiration (Failure, Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr), especially in the guitar category. It felt like picking a guitar up for the first time in some ways, trying to reinvent my regular playing style as much as I could.

Sommargryningsljus [LP]
$44.98  44.98
chart cover

Kaipa are back! In the summer of 1964 Hans Lundin's musical career started when he became a member of his first band as organist and singer. He says that the following years were "the best education I could ever get". Nine years later in 1973 he formed the group KAIPA.  Now 60 years into his career he and his current bandmates Per Nilsson, Jonas Reingold, Darby Todd, Patrik Lundstrm & Aleena Gibson are proud to announce the release of Kaipa's 15th studio album Sommargryningsljus (Summer Dawn Light).    A whispering dawn the sun's on its way to open up a brand new day out of the shadows of the night is the opening phrase of the song Songs in Our Hands.  The dawn theme has always been close to Hans Lundin's heart in his songwriting. On the self titled debut album released in 1975, 49 years ago, he wrote about this in the song Se var morgon gry. Also in the songs Dagens port and Visa i sommaren on the following albums he returned to this theme. With the new album he closes the circle and returns to where it all began.     Sommargryningsljus contains eight tracks portraying a nocturnal journey from dusk until dawn, with the first two tracks representing the twilight and the closing two indicating dawn. This nighttime odyssey can be seen as a metaphor for the state between death and rebirth, or as an allegory of life told in reverse.   As a bonus track, Sommargryningsljus (single edit) is included where the entire song can be heard as it was originally written including Sommarskymningsljus.   The basic structures of two of the four long songs in the middle section of the album (Seven Birds & Spiderweb Train) were originally written in the late 90's. The same period as the songs for Kaipas comeback album Notes from the past (2002) were written.   Sommargryningsljus is available as Ltd. CD Mediabook, 12 Gatefold 180g 2LP vinyl in black and digital album

Manual Manic Procedures [Indie Exclusive Disfigured Face LP]
$32.98  32.98
chart cover

Cleveland death metal legends-in-waiting 200 Stab Wounds have returned with Manual Manic Procedures, a superlative sophomore effort that follows 2021s Slave to the Scalpel, their tour de force debut. The new album is a brutal slab of old school death metal with a contemporary edge. Not for the faint-hearted, Manual Manic Procedures may well be the album that puts classic gore-themed ferocity back into the metal communitys collective consciousness. The band's debut, "Slave to the Scalpel" saw 200 Stab Wounds insinuate themselves into the minds of extreme metal fans, leading to praise from Pitchfork for their unpretentious brilliance, pitch-black sense of humor and an aesthetic [thats] built around a chugging, groovy riff that stomps down a path of destruction. Manual Manic Procedures sees the band upping the ante both musically and lyrically. Ultimately, for 200 Stab Wounds, its all about creating art that they enjoy. I know that if we like it, our fans will like it, says Buhl. That's really all that matters to us. And if we keep touring, it's just gonna get bigger and bigger. Then everyone's happy, far as I'm concerned. The songs on Manual Manic Procedures are not safe for work perhaps unsafe most anywhere. But thats its dark charm in a world where even heavy music can play it too safely. 200 Stab Wounds have crafted Manual Manic Procedures for themselves and like-minded brethren: thrill-seekers, carnage cravers, horror fans, and aficionados of the most extreme metal. Above all, 200SW created a future death metal classic.

God Said No [ Indie Exclusive Gold LP Gatefold with printed inner sleeve and poster]
$31.98  31.98
chart cover
Traversing the bounds of genre and language in his songs, singer-songwriter GRAMMY nominated Omar Apollo captures the adventurous spirit that this multi-hyphenate moment in pop demands, returning with his highly anticipated sophomore album, God Said No. God Said No is Omar’s interpretation of “lo que sera, sera” which translates to “whatever will be, will be”. The phrase embodies the album with Omar’s tongue-in-cheek humorous outlook on the suffering that comes from surrendering and accepting whatever is thrown at you by life, a relationship, or lover. Omar believes his natural state is longing for love or stability, and elements of the album are about surrendering to that. The record was created with Teo Halm, Blake Slatkin, Carter Lang, Dylan Wiggins, and Oscar Santander, among other contributors. In 2022 with the release of Ivory, Apollo’s eclectic debut, his hit single and career first Billboard Hot 100 entry “Evergreen (You Didn’t Deserve Me at All)” was certified platinum, sold out his first headlining tour, and performed arenas with SZA and Daniel Caesar. Omar Apollo is a true visionary, whose one-of-a-kind pop synthesis unites listeners from all walks of life in a shared passion for rhythm and soul.

Double vinyl LP pressing. In 1999, the same year that Jason Moran released his debut recording Soundtrack To Human Motion, the pianist and composer also joined New Directions, a band made up of young stars from the Blue Note roster. At the core of New Directions was the genesis of a rhythm section-with Moran, bassist Tarus Mateen, and drummer Nasheet Waits-that would go on to become one of the most enduringly creative and acclaimed piano trios in jazz. The Bandwagon made their first recording as a trio with Facing Left in 2000 and has been the foundation of the majority of Moran's artistic statements since. On his 2010 album Ten, Moran celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Bandwagon with an assured album that was a snapshot of a mature band with a decade of shared musical experience from which to draw. In addition to provocative originals the album presented singular interpretations of pieces by Thelonious Monk, Jaki Byard, Leonard Bernstein, and Conlon Nancarrow.

Songs in A&E [LP]
$35.98  35.98
chart cover

Songs in A&E is a beautiful, chilling record and it was very nearly the last thing J Spaceman would ever release. In 2005, with the writing and recording well underway, Spaceman was rushed to the Royal London Infirmary with double pneumonia. The sleeve of this reissue is a photograph taken as he lay in what his close friends and family feared at the time was his deathbed. We thought hed gone, recalled band mate John Coxon at the time. The album is collection of graceful, country-influenced songs that muse on familiar themes of love, death, hope and hopelessness. The country element was informed by a small black 1928 Gibson acoustic hed bought in Cincinnati while the band toured the Amazing Grace record. Spaceman called it The Devil. J Spaceman: Mostly, when you buy a guitar, like most things, you don't really have any idea of whether it's good or not. And this shop had about eight of the same models for comparison, but this one was in a cage, to keep people away from it, like they knew it was kind of special. And it's beautiful. It just sings. And it kind of came with those songs, which is obviously a sort of romantic notion, but it really felt like it did. I'd never written on a guitar until this point and it seemed to come with all of this information.

On her new album, Sunset Drive, Denitia shares her story of going after something new a life back in Nashville, where she attended college, immersed in both the citys roots music scene and the community of the artist collective Black Opry while experiencing the menagerie of emotions that come with leaving behind what you knew and starting over. Across the album, she draws from the country and alternative rock music she listened to growing up outside of Houston; the songs of artists such as the Eagles, Vince Gill, Waylon Jennings, Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton, and Neil Young, ever present in her life; and the decade she spent entrenched in Brooklyns indie music scene. Denitias music has been featured in the films Nanny and The Invitation, as well as in the series Better Things (FX), Broad City (Comedy Central), Dear White People (Netflix), Shrinking (Apple TV+), and The Terminal List (Amazon). She has toured extensively with the Black Opry Revue; been invited to perform at the National Museum of African American Music and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville; and shared stages with Jason Isbell, Amythyst Kiah, Joy Oladokun, and Allison Russell, among other artists.

Opaque Red LP (Indie Exclusive).

Mj Lenderman is a songwriter born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina. The anatomy of an MJ record might go something like this: warped pedal steels and skuzzed out guitar; crackin' a cold one with some buds; a voice reminiscent of the high-lonesome warble of a choirboy. Songs snake their way from a lo-fi home recording to something glossier made with longtime friends at Asheville's Drop of Sun studios, but the recording setting doesn't seem to matter much - at it's core, a Lenderman song rings true.Manning Fireworks is a remarkable development in Mj Lenderman's story as an incredibly incisive singer-songwriter, whose propensity for humor always points to some uneasy, disorienting darkness. The punchlines are still here, as are the rusted-wire guitar solos that have made Lenderman a favorite for indie rock fans looking for an emerging guitar hero. There's a new sincerity, too, as Lenderman let's listeners clearly see the world through his warped lens.

Bastion [Hardwood Colored LP]
$24.98  24.98
chart cover
Wayne Graham (the band) has long been at the forefront of the new movement of artists shaping the New Appalachian Sound - shaped by tradition, but intentionally set on forging a new sonic landscape. The new album, Bastion firmly establishes them as the architects of a new sound coming from the region. The songs on the album are treated like the complex feelings we feel, vague and cloaked in mystery, or sometimes blunt and pleading for change. Different instruments wash in and out like a stream of thoughts; some soothing, some disruptive. Year after year, our perspectives unravel into new version after new version, losing vital information with each update. The songs on this record speak to the forgetting. The name or phrase on the tip of our tongue that we cant say, because its hiding in our mind behind a worry or distraction. Because every song starts as a question, we attempt to avoid the urge to find an answer, and we ask more questions. When nothing is 100% anything, then what is concrete enough to define fully? No definitions here, just ideas with no value outside of their real time impact on the thinker. No promise of understanding, and all you can do is sing.

Allah-Las met while working at Amoeba Music, a key destination for music lovers in Los Angeles. While this experience helped shape their sensibility, their sound was forged in an underground basement where they came together as a band. They began gigging in Los Angeles in 2008, refining their live performance, and finally released their first 7 single Catamaran / Long Journey in 2011. In 2012, they began their relationship with Innovative Leisure, releasing their first self-titled album, Allah-Las, anchored by their second single Tell Me (Whats On Your Mind) / Sacred Sands. The release was met with critical acclaim and the band toured extensively in the States and abroad before going back into the studio to record their follow-up. Allah-Las second album, Worship The Sun, expands on the sound established by their maiden effort, honing their fusion of West Coast garage rock and roll, Latin percussion and electric folk. As richly textured and timeless as a Southern California beach break, the songs are evocative of Los Angeles storied past. Beatniks, artists, surfers, nomads. Remnants of a bygone Sunset Strip. Golden tans and cosmic sunsets. One can feel the warmth of the sun, but the band deftly avoids the kitsch so often indulged by lovers of these things. Hints of Byrds, Love, Felt, and those who follow are threaded into the tapestry.

$29.98  29.98

Shirt is part angsty fantasy, part confessional melodrama a rock album that oscillates between reality and make-believe to reflect both the innocence of suburban youth and the frayed reality of adulthood. A fusion of chaotic impulses, insatiable desires, and a perpetual yearning, Shirt plays with the tension between one's person and persona the weight of your dreams crashing up against your reality. The result is something both familiar and uncanny, an anthemic tribute to this intrinsic duality built on crashing and caressing sounds.

Shirt is instantly recognizable as Porches' heaviest album to date. Grungy guitars that shine with a menacing glint, drums and bass that punch you warmly in the stomach, interspersed with moments of eerie calmness to create a physical sense of tension and release that resonates with each track.

A concise record that thrusts listeners into a fevered state, Shirts hormonal rock songs collide with emotional ballads to create a dynamic tension that propels the listener ahead. The album speaks in broad, relatable terms while maintaining an intimate connection with its creator, blurring the line between universality and personal revelation. Shirt is as much about the climaxes as it is about the banality between life's most memorable moments, celebrating not just the first kiss but also the anxiety intertwined with it.

A founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show, and a staple on the folk and americana circuit - Willie is no stranger to the stage and to audiences.

Willie didn't make any specific pact with him, but he had been tangled up with him his whole life. This album is about finding himself free of that devil, and learning to love himself again. It is about no longer leaning on old sounds and old folk singers and the music they made, and instead about learning to express himself freely and without limits. The result is a masterpiece.  

The Forest Is The Path [Indie Exclusive Marbled Blue 2 LP Limited Edition]
$39.98  39.98
chart cover
Including the new single, “The Beginning,” The Forest Is The Path is an album rooted in reflection, introspection and interrogation. One of its key building blocks, says Gary Lightbody, was the idea of love from a distance, “I haven’t been in a relationship for a very long time, 10 years or more, so love from a distance to me meant the way a relationship sits in your memory from a distance of, say, 10 years. That’s not something I’d previously thought about as a way to write about love. So, it’s like, when you’re in love, you’re standing in the lobby of the Empire State Building. When you’ve broken up with that person, you’re out in the street. You can still see the building, but you’re not in there anymore. And when it’s 10 years later, now you’re standing in Brooklyn looking at the Manhattan skyline.”

Devourer [Red & Black 2 LP]
$44.98  44.98
chart cover
Very few bands manage to last decades, and for the ones that do, its often easy to settle down and get a little too comfortable. But theres nothing comfortable about Devourer, the explosive new album from Cursive. The iconic Omaha group is known for their intensity, ambition, and execution, and has spent 30 years creating a bold discography thats defined as much by its cathartic sound as its weighty, challenging lyrical themes. And Devourer is as daring as ever. Full of intense and incisive songs, the album proves exactly why Cursive have been so influential and enduringand why they remain so vital today. In the years since their 1995 formation, Cursive developed into one of the most important groups to emerge from the late-90s/early 00s moment when the lines between indie rock and post-hard-core began blurring into something altogether new. Albums like Domestica (2000) and The Ugly Organ (2003) became essential touchstones whose echoes can still be heard in new bands today. Devourer, as an expansive new double-album, examines humanitys bottomless capacity for consumption through a series of songs that act like vignettes, driven by frontman Tim Kashers never-end-ing appetite for both taking in and creating art. I am obsessive about consuming the arts, he explains. Music, film, literature. Ive come to recognize that I devour all of these art forms then, in turn, create my own versions of these things and spew them out onto the world. Its positive; youre part of an ecosystem. But I quickly recognized that the term, Devourer, may also embody something gnarly, sinister. Fans have come to expect such heady topics from Cursive, but Devourer sets a new standard. While Cursives music hasnt gotten any more comfortable, perhaps its being released into a world thats at least a little more shaped in their image. Devourer sounds urgent and fresh, the work of a band still experimenting, still hungering to find new creative heights. On album highlight Consumers, the protagonist bemoans, I saw ourn future and I want to go back. But Cursive are only moving forward.

Dayglow [LP]
$32.99  32.99
chart cover

Multi-platinum indie pop artist Dayglow reveals his new self-titled project and celebrates the official announcement by dropping his latest single Cocoon. DAYGLOW embodies exactly who Sloan Struble is as an artist and creative and acts as a proper introduction into the bright and colorful Dayglow world. The 10-track debut record was solely written, performed, recorded, produced, and mixed by Struble himself in his Malibu home studio. He opens up and shares, When I was 18 years old, I made my mixtape Fuzzybrain. I was a pretty introverted kid from a reasonably small town in Texas, so I didnt expect much to happen commercially for the recordI just made it for my own enjoyment, really. As a fan of the 2010s indie music scene (MGMT, The Strokes, Phoenix, Passion Pit, etc.), I wanted to see what kind of album I could make completely alone in my bedroom. So, out of the quest to make something I loved, Dayglow was born. It was a clear reflection of myself at that time. It was pure, naive, goofy, guitar-driven indie-pop made to be played live by a 5-piece band (that I didnt even have yet).

My good friend told me this is the sexiest album I've ever made. Honestly, I think she's right." The record is a nocturne about love and loss - what else is there? - and a reckoning with our collective disorientation, part hymn to holding on and part benediction of letting go. Joan has toured the globe, performing in dive bars and symphony halls, at independent music festivals and on the BBC, and has collaborated with a kaleidoscope of luminaries, including Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright, Tony Allen, Damon Albarn, John Cale, Laurie Anderson, Sufjan Stevens, Anohni, Beck, Meshell Ndegeocello, Toshi Reagon, David Byrne, and Daniel Johnston.

Flood [Indie Exclusive Clear Galaxy 2 LP]
$32.98  32.98
chart cover
Hippo Campus' singer Jake Luppen had been listening to the band's work as they rolled around the country, trying to tease out how much work remained. All of it, he soon decided. Obfuscated by the need to sound sophisticated and the overwhelming ambition to make the best Hippo Campus LP ever, a deeper and more profound record that reflected how their lives were changing. But Luppen and all of Hippo Campus decided they didn't actually like what they were making.So they called an audible. They were going to start over. And three months later, the four-member core of Hippo Campus rendezvoused with longtime collaborator Caleb Wright and producer Brad Cook at Sonic Ranch, a playground-like studio complex on the Texas border. They gave themselves 10 days to cut the tracks they liked best, to make something to which they could commit at last. Less than two weeks later, they emerged with what they'd given themselves half a decade to make-Flood, or the best album Hippo Campus has ever made. The sentiments on Flood are raw, real, and unguarded, a testament to Hippo Campus dropping preconceptions of how they had to sound after so many failed attempts to re-record these songs. They wiped the slate clean, starting over without beliefs about what Hippo Campus or this record needed to be. Still, sophistication lurks in subtle key and tempo changes, in the almost innate shifts that a band of longtime best friends can tap after so much time spent helping to shape one another's musical language. Flood doesn't need to tell you it's important or interesting; it simply is, just by virtue of how it's written, built, and rendered, a map of what it's like to feel everything at once. This rebirth is accompanied by a crucial career shift for Hippo Campus, too, as they exit the traditional label system to issue LP4 via Psychic Hotline, a truly independent imprint run by peers and pals. If you're working to let go of expectations, why not jettison them all? There's a bravery to that, and you can hear it's revivifying spirit in every second of LP4.Early into the endlessly propulsive "Paranoid," where stunted acoustic strums undergird an inescapable jangle, Luppen asks an existential question: "Is there something waiting out there for us at the finish line?" For the next three minutes, the band cycles with him through his woes, from the title's overwhelming worry to notions of dislocation and loneliness. (Also, is there any other refrain ever that manages to make the phrase "so god-damned fucking" sound so catchy and natural?) But in the final verse, with his voice breaking through a scrim of distortion, he stumbles upon a new credo: "Wait, I wanna give this life all that I have in me." That is precisely what Hippo Campus have done with Flood after realizing it doesn't take a lifetime-or, well, five years-to do just that.  

3rd
$34.98  34.98

"Is the third time always a charm?" Mitchell Tenpenny vulnerably wonders on his song "The 3rd," the title track and cornerstone of his upcoming third studio album. The husky-voiced, tenderhearted chart-topper is the third James Mitchell Tenpenny in his family and feels the weight of the responsibility that comes with that history. Is he living up to his potential? Is he making his family proud? What happens to the name if he doesn't have a son? The song is a relatable gut punch for anyone concerned with meeting familial expectations - it's unflinching sincerity the unbreakable tie that binds the album. - Mitchell's vision for the The 3rd is a testament to his personal growth and artistic evolution. No longer playing games, he has crafted an album that resonates with his own experiences and emotions. This honest and empathetic collection not only showcases his maturity as a man, singer, songwriter, and storyteller but also invites listeners to join him on his creative journey through life and music. - An eclectic mix of songs, styles and genres that are each meaningful and representative of the singer, The 3rd is designed to offer something for everyone. Mitchell worked with the preciseness of an artistic surgeon while choosing songs and sequencing, even opting to cover The Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris," the first song he learned to play on guitar. Mitchell's distinct voice glides through uptempo tracks laced with synth, anchored with loops and driven by banjo then turns convicted and passionate, soaring with hard-driving guitar solos and wailing through heartbreaking choruses. - The 3rd is both his story - and a made-up narrative. Stitching each genre, style, and story so seamlessly together is a musical triumph for himself and his fans, showcasing the courage and unparalleled artistry of James Mitchell Tenpenny.
