>Wilco – Ode To Joy CD/2xLP (dBpm)
Jeff Tweedy and Co. follow-up 2016’s Schmilco and the singer/songwriter’s pair of solo albums, Warm and Warmer, with Wilco's eleventh studio effort, Ode To Joy. Featuring 11 new songs written and produced by Tweedy and recorded by Wilco at The Loft (Chicago, IL) in January 2019, Tweedy and Glenn Kotche were the launching pad from which most of the songs on Ode To Joy materialized – Kotche’s percussion propels the music forward while Tweedy's measured words flesh out the cleared paths. As a result, the album is comprised of “really big, big folk songs, these monolithic, brutal structures that these delicate feelings are hung on,” notes Tweedy. Across the entire album, drums pound and plod with a steady one – two pulse, meant to mimic the movement of marching – a powerful act utilized on both sides of the authoritarian wall. There’s also a sense of comfort that comes with the rhythmic marching sound. [Limited indie store exclusive pink colored vinyl pressing also available.]

>Big Thief – Two Hands CD/LP+MP3 (4AD)
Big Thief had only just finished work on their recently released third album,
U.F.O.F. – “the celestial twin” – days before in a cabin studio in the woods of Washington State. Now it was time to birth U.F.O.F.’s sister album – “the earth twin” – Two Hands. 30 miles west of El Paso, surrounded by 3,000 acres of pecan orchards and only a stone’s throw from the Mexican border, Big Thief (a.k.a. Adrianne Lenker, Buck Meek, Max Oleartchik, and James Krivchenia) set up their instruments as close together as possible to capture their most important collection of songs yet.

>Elbow – Giants Of All Sizes CD/LP (Verve)
Elbow's eighth studio album,
Giants Of All Sizes, lyrically takes in moments of deep personal loss whilst reflecting its times by confronting head-on the specters of injustice and division not just in the UK but across the world. It is a record that could only have been made in the 21st Century. Given such bleak, if ultimately redeemed, subject matter, it is also, perversely, the most relaxed record which Elbow have made in some time.

>Allah-Las – Lahs CD/LP (Mexican Summer)
On their fourth LP, drummer Matt Correia, bassist Spencer Dunham, and guitarists Miles Michaud and Pedrum Siadatian turn their collective gaze outward and toward the horizon. Simply titled
Lahs (a reference to a common misspelling of the band’s name), their new release finds the band turning in their most cohesive and ambitious work yet.

>Boy Harsher – Country Girl Uncut CD/LP (Nude Club)
In October 2017 Boy Harsher released the four-track EP, Country Girl. The EP was released by Ascetic House as a one-time vinyl pressing of 600 copies, which sold out in a month. This new deluxe reissue titled
Country Girl Uncut, includes four previously unreleased tracks, for a total of eight songs. The sound defined by these two worlds that the band existed within - their quiet, modest life in small town Massachusetts and their speed-fueled weekends in New York.

>John Coltrane – Blue World CD/LP (Verve)
In 1964, the National Film Board of Canada asked John Coltrane to record the soundtrack for a French-language film titled
Le Chat Dans Le Sac (The Cat In The Bag). In June of that year, Coltrane's classic quartet entered Rudy Van Gelder's studio and recorded five previously-recorded Coltrane originals. For many years, viewers of the film who recognized the music thought that they were listening to the original recordings, though in fact they were new and had never been heard.

>The Harlem Gospel Travelers – He’s On Time CD/LP (Colemine)
The Harlem Gospel Travelers are not from Harlem. They came to Harlem, however, from far-flung corners of the five boroughs of New York City, and it was in Harlem, that legendary center of African-American culture, that they found their voices. As members of the music education program Gospel For Teens, these young men spent many hours on the subway or the bus to ultimately end up at an unassuming brownstone on W. 126th Street.

>David Bowie – VH1 Storytellers – Live At Manhattan Center 2xLP (Rhino/Parlophone)
Recorded on August 23
rd, 1999 for VH1's Storytellers, this set of songs spanning the '60s through the '90s was officially released 10 years later in 2009. Now it's available on double vinyl for its 20th anniversary.

>Kim Gordon – No Home Record CD/LP+MP3 (Matador)
Multi-disciplinary artist Kim Gordon’s first solo album,
No Home Record, follows the recent opening of her solo exhibition She Bites Her Tender Mind at IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) in Dublin and Lo-Fi Glamour at Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. The album’s title is a nod to the French-Belgian director Chantal Akerman's film No Home Movie. Despite the exhaustive nature of her résumé, the most reliable aspect of Gordon’s music may be its resistance to formula. Songs discover themselves as they unspool, each one performing a test of the medium’s possibilities and limits.

>Kurt Vile ‎– Childish Prodigy [Reissue/2009] LP+7”+MP3 (Matador)
Tenth anniversary colored vinyl LP pressing with accompanying 7". Kurt Vile's 2009 album was the complete set that he had hidden up his plaid sleeve for half a decade. Featuring nine dreamy, off kilter cuts (most by hometown master-engineer Jeff Zeigler) with the perfect level of fidelity, tunes like "Hunchback" and "Inside Looking Out" show the absolute power the Violators hold.
