>RICHARD EDWARDS - Lemon Cotton Candy Sunset (LUNA music retail EXCLUSIVE Package) limited LP + 7" LATHE-CUT SINGLE (Joyful Noise)
"In 2014, Richard Edwards (then frontman of Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s) was diagnosed with C. diff - a rare and potentially fatal stomach ailment. Shortly after releasing Margot’s final album, he lost over 40 pounds, was to forced to abandoned a near sold-out tour, and spent the next couple years recovering and writing a new record about absence. In 2015, after the dissipation of a longtime partnership & marriage, he underwent surgery on his abdomen and re-wrote the record about absence. The result is Lemon Cotton Candy Sunset, Edwards’ first post-Margot solo album.
Produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Cass McCombs, Beck) – the album is the culmination of a personal journey we wouldn't wish on anybody...but the resulting audio is a highly personal document, equal parts beautiful and tragic." — JNR

SURPRISE! BRAND NEW ALBUM!!

>The New Pornographers – Whiteout Conditions CD/LP (Concord)
“Cohesive.” It's a word New Pornographers founder A.C. Newman still sounds a little bit surprised to say as he describes the band's seventh album,
Whiteout Conditions. It's a quality that you wouldn't necessarily intuitively associate with a so-called supergroup that, by its very collective nature, seems bound to have a good deal of stylistic variance built into the formula (or lack of it). Can an outfit built on the appeal of multiple frontmen and frontwomen develop a signature sound after all? Maybe, and maybe better late than never. “On other records,” says Newman, “it felt like sometimes it was very clear: oh, this is a fast one with me singing, and then the next would be a slow song with Neko (Case) singing. And I've always liked that in a White Album kind of way - being a band that just does whatever the hell they want from track to track. But when we did Brill Bruisers (the band's previous album, released in 2014), it was the first time where I thought: Let's try to make a cohesive record. Let’s try to give it a sound and see how focused we can make it. And on this record, I think we went a lot farther down that road.” [Limited white color vinyl pressing also available.]
Stacks Image 6580
>Arca – Arca CD/LP (XL)
Arca is the first to feature the Venezuela-born, London-based producer’s untreated singing voice. He sings in Spanish – the language of his childhood home, Venezuela. It stands as a defiant, delicate statement of intent, and cements his position as one of this turbulent decade’s defining musicians. Previous work has incorporated snatches of song and Arca’s rapping, but on Arca, his voice is front-and-center on eight of the album’s 13 tracks.

>MAC DEMARCO - This Old Dog (Indie Exclusive White Vinyl) LP (Captured Tracks) Out 05 MAY 2017
DeMarco wrote some demos for This Old Dog on an acoustic guitar, an unusual yet eye-opening method for him. He also attributes some of the delay to his exploration of new gear he’d purchased, specifically a CR-78 drum machine, which he used while writing and can be heard on his album tracks for the first time ever. "That thing helped a ton, especially for demoing," he says. "It’s on the album a lot, maybe four or five songs. I usually demo on a drum machine and then record real drums, but I liked that machine so much I kept it on the album. The majority of this album is acoustic guitar, synthesizer, some drum machine, and one song is electric guitar. So this is a new endeavor for me".
