>Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds – Ghosteen 2xCD/2xLP+MP3 (Ghosteen/AWAL)
Ghosteen, the new two-part album from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, serves as the band’s 17th studio effort overall following 2016’s Skeleton Tree. “The songs on the first album are the children. The songs on the second album are their parents. Ghosteen is a migrating spirit,” notes Cave. “On the the first album Nick Cave has written and recorded entirely since the death of his teenage son, Arthur, in 2015—he sorts through his grief and all the requisite stages, occasionally as though in real time. His mood drifts between domesticity and depravity. He empathizes with the true believers who wept beneath Jesus’ feet at the crucifixion. He latches onto friendship and love in any shape they take. He loses his faith, then fights desperately for any belief that can replace it. Scored by synthesizers, pianos, and electronics, the process is alternately harrowing and comforting for the first hour of the album, Cave’s waking nightmare on full display. [Here he] emerges with one of his most powerful albums yet, an endlessly giving and complex meditation on mortality and our collective grief.” – Pitchfork, Best New Music

>Allen Stone – Building Balance CD/LP (ATO)
Allen Stone's Building Balance is his first new album in four years, spanning a time period spent figuring out how the old parts and the new parts of his universe were going to co-exist. For
Building Balance, he worked with Grammy-winning producer Nasri as well as Jamie Lidell. Stone continues to draw inspiration from ‘70s funk and soul with current flexes, sitting amid D'Angelo in its sultrier moments, Stevie Wonder at its most melodic and the production of Mark Ronson at its most modern. [Limited clear vinyl pressing also available.]

Vetiver – Up On High CD/LP (Mama Bird)
Vetiver is the long-running stage and recording name of San Francisco's Andy Cabic. 
Up On High is his seventh studio album and the first since 2015. Vetiver has toured around the world on headline tours and supporting artists that include Wilco, The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Bob Weir & Phil Lesh, and Vashti Bunyan. Vetiver craft nuanced, understated songs that reward careful listening, building a rich duality; a space where sunshine is only a chord away from melancholy, an introspective lyric underlies an extroverted chorus and subtlety tries to be outgoing in an effort to connect the dots of life's ellipsis.

Sudan Archives – Athena CD/LP (Stones Throw)
Violinist, singer and songwriter Sudan Archives (born Brittney Denise Parks) releases her debut album, 
Athena. Sudan Archives is widely acclaimed for her thrilling combination of styles: powerful and anthemic R&B, electronic music, a violin style inspired by Northeast African fiddling, and West African rhythms. For Athena, she collaborated with a wide cast of songwriters, producers and musicians for a sound that is her fullest and richest to date, while staying true to the unique blend of influences that has won her fans around the world. Athena follows the EPs Sudan Archives (2017) and Sink (2018), which received glowing coverage from tastemakers across the board.

>Morphine – Good [Reissue/1992] 2xLP (Run Out Groove)
One of the most unique, original and unusual rock bands to burst onto the alternative scene in the 90s, Morphine was originally formed by vocalist/bassist Mark Sandman (d. 1999), saxophonist Dana Colley and drummer Jerome Deupree (later replaced by Billy Conway) in Cambridge, Mass in 1989. They expertly combined blues, jazz and rock elements into a very distinct style, anchored by Sandman's deep, crooning, beat-style vocals. Run Out Groove's deluxe expanded vinyl edition of their 1992 debut
Good includes a bonus LP of alternates, live and demo tracks licensed from the Mark Sandman Estate.

>Can
– Tago Mago [Reissue/1971] 2xLP (Mute)
– Ege Bamyasi [Reissue/1972] LP (Mute)
Limited colored vinyl reissues of the krautrock band’s third and fourth albums. Of all the band’s oeuvre, the unclassifiable
Tago Mago has been most often cited as an influence for a host of artists including John Lydon, The Fall, Ariel Pink, F**k Buttons, Sonic Youth, Factory Floor and Queens Of The Stone Age. Ege Bamyasi finds the band transitioning from the edgy excursions of their earlier albums to the more nuanced ambience of their later fare, a sound that would lend itself to many soundtrack opportunities.

>DESTROYER - Have We Met (Seafoam Green Vinyl Edition) LP
In his 25 years performing under the Destroyer moniker, effusive art-rocker Dan Bejar has made some stone cold classics. Albums like Destroyer's Rubies (2006), Kaputt (2011) and ken (2017) have garnered huge love from critics & fans alike (Kaputt most recently being named one of the Top 25 Albums of the Decade by Pitchfork). His latest album features elements from all three of those albums with gauzy saxophones & synthesizers floating under Bejar's razor-sharp wit. But the roots of his new album bloomed out very un-Destroyer influences like period-specific Björk, Air, and Massive Attack!
