>LowDouble Negative CD/LP+MP3 (Sub Pop)
This year Low turns 25. Since 1993, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker – the married couple whose heaven-and-earth harmonies have always held the band's center – have pioneered a subgenre, shrugged off its strictures, recorded a Christmas classic, become a magnetic onstage force, and emerged as one of music’s most steadfast and vital vehicles for pulling light from our darkest emotional recesses. But Low will not commemorate its first quarter-century with mawkish nostalgia or safe runs through songbook favorites. Instead, in faithfully defiant fashion, Low release their most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album ever:
Double Negative, an unflinching 11-song quest through snarling static and shattering beats that somehow culminates in the brightest pop song of Low's career.

>Jungle – For Ever CD/LP (XL)
The core duo of Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland describe their long awaited second album For Ever as "a post-apocalyptic radio station playing break up songs." If Jungle's first effort was their imaginary soundtrack to the places they had never been, their new record captures the landscapes they had so often dreamed of.

>Dorothy Ashby ‎– Afro-Harping [Reissue/1968] LP (Geffen)
Afro-Harping is an excellent late 60's soulful jazz harp album from Dorothy Ashby recorded for Chess Records' Cadet subsidiary with arrangements by Richard Evans. From the opening funky groove with Theremin to the reverb heavy harp solos Ashby stretches the capabilities of the harp throughout and proved that the instrument was way more than just an exotic orchestral color. Ashby's harmonic selections are as up to date now as they were then.

Released in 1980,
Heartattack And Vine was Waits' final album on Elektra Asylum and it built on the raw blues approach of Blue Valentine with the incendiary title track, the funky, organ driven "Downtown" and the stomping NOLA blues of "Mr. Siegal". This album also contains some of Waits' most popular ballads, including "Jersey Girl" which was famously a hit for Bruce Springsteen. [180gm pressing also available.]

>KURT VILE - Bottle It In (Indie Exclusive Clear Edition Vinyl) LP
Travel can inspire in surprising ways: Kurt Vile discovered as much making his first record in three years, the eclectic and electrifying Bottle It In, which he recorded at various studios around the country over two very busy years, during sessions that usually punctuated the ends of long tours or family road trips.
Every song, whether it’s a concise and catchy pop composition or a sprawling guitar epic, becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos. If Vile has become something of a rock guitar god—a mantle he would dismiss out of humility but also out of a desire to keep getting better, to continue absorbing new music, new sounds, new ideas—it’s due to his precise, witty playing style, which turns every riff and rhythm into points on a map and takes the scenic route from one to the next.

>BEN PIRANI - How Do I Talk To My Brother? (Black Edition Vinyl) LP
“It’d be easy to mistake this release for yet another soul revival album made by a dude who wasn’t there the first time around - but it’d be the listener’s mistake to make. What kind of record is a man with a punk past going to make when he’s been a mod, a rocker and a rare soul collector in between? One that draws on a familial history of activism, sacrifice and earnest hustling – the very same things we’re all being called upon to conjure as a society in this present moment. This is a body of work that lets neither performer nor listener off the hook, yet still understands the need for care and cause in the spaces between. Consider it: A band of fighters meant for the clear-eyed lovers of the world. Ben Pirani is not fooling around, and neither are the working musicians who agreed to make this record with him.” - Jocelyn Brown
Colemine Records is proud to present the debut LP from Ben Pirani. A record that feels so very easy and familiar, but at the same time fresh and relevant. Like the hype sticker says, “Soul music that’s so positive it might just spark a revolution!”

>WILL OLDHAM - Songs Of Love And Horror (Black Vinyl Edition) LP
Fall of 2018 sees the release of a celebrated lyrics archive that has been growing for over 25 years—the words to the songs sung by Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Palace Music. The author of the songs is Will Oldham, and the book, to be released by W.W. Norton, is titled Songs of Love and Horror, the same as this album.
Songs of Love and Horror is a rare entry in this oeuvre: a Will Oldham album, with the writer taking a turn as singer. As befits the nature of this project, the songs are sung and played by Will alone, in a setting enjoyed by fans of his music—that of one voice and one guitar, the better to savor the spare changes and starkly-cut lyrics, operating in quiet tension and ultimate collaboration. Will brings to the songs all that he has learned from his stagecrafting fellows over the years, singing new versions that quiver like fresh young things in the air of today.

>BLOOD ORANGE - NEGRO SWAN (Gold Edition Vinyl) 2-LP Set
“My newest album is an exploration into my own and many types of black depression, an honest look at the corners of black existence, and the ongoing anxieties of queer/people of color. A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all. The underlying thread through each piece on the album is the idea of hope, and the lights we can try to turn on within ourselves with a hopefully positive outcome of helping others out of their darkness.”
Deluxe double LP is pressed on limited edition gold vinyl with a double sided 24x36 poster. Widespine LP jacket with two printed inner sleeves
