>Lillie MaeOther Girls CD/LP (Third Man)
Lillie Mae's new Third Man Records album
Other Girls features eleven new, original songs produced by Grammy-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A. The Nashville singer, songwriter, downtown scene slayer, and most-wanted fiddler signals a reclaimed confidence and bold evolution here, telling women's stories – including her own – that build on the strength of her 2017 Jack White-produced debut.

>Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Bandana CD/LP (RCA)
The second collaborative studio album by rapper Freddie Gibbs and record producer Madlib. Entirely produced by Madlib,
Bandana is the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2014 album Piñata, and their sixth project as MadGibbs overall. The album features guest appearances from Pusha T, Killer Mike, Anderson Paak, Yasiin Bey, and Black Thought.After a decade in the wilderness, David Berman has returned to record-making - this time around as Purple Mountains, leaving his iconic Silver Jews brand to history. Fortunately for all the fans, he's retained his iconic songwriting style, with a new batch of tunes conveying an astonishing variety of 21st-century mid-life crises.

>Tyler ChildersCountry Squire CD/LP+M{3 (RCA)
Rising singer/songwriter Tyler Childers returns with
Country Squire, his second official full-length effort. Produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, the album was recorded at The Butcher Shoppe in Nashville and consists of nine new originals. In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the long player features several world-renowned musicians including Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, banjo), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jaw harp, baritone). Of the mission behind the album, Childers notes, “I hope that people in the area that I grew up in find something they can relate to. I hope that I'm doing my people justice and I hope that maybe someone from somewhere else can get a glimpse of the life of a Kentucky boy.” Ushered in by the yearning bluegrass-tinged tale, “House Fire”, Country Squire continues a series of breakout years for the promising artist, whose acclaimed debut, Purgatory - also produced by Simpson and Ferguson – landed on multiple Best of 2017 lists. [Indie store exclusive color splatter vinyl LP edition also available.]

>Ride – This Is Not A Safe Place CD/2xLP+MP3 (Wichita)
Ride return with the sixth studio album of their career and their second since reforming in 2014. As with their previous album,
Weather Diaries, Erol Alkan was in the producer's chair, and Alan Moulder (with Caesar Edmunds) took care of the mixing (making this the fourth Ride album he has worked on). Gathering influences from sources such as the Jean Michel Basquiat exhibition at the Barbican, and the post punk sound of The Fall and Sonic Youth, Ride has made an album which contains echoes of their earliest days as a band, while bringing these elements into 2019. Both musically and lyrically, this is clearly an album made by a band who love being back together and who are at the very top of their game.

>Clairo – Immunity CD (FADER Label)
Clairo, the moniker of 20-year-old multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Claire Cottrill, drops her debut album,
Immunity. Following-up her debut EP Diary 001, which featured the hit singles “Pretty Girl”, “Flamin’ Hot Cheetos” and “4EVER”, Immunity sees Clairo team up with co-producer Rostam (Vampire Weekend) in a stunning glimpse into an artist’s growth.

>King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard – Infest The Rats’ Nest CD/LP (ATO)
Infest The Rats’ Nest is the sound of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard scratching the thrash metal itch, fully and unequivocally. Ferocious and direct, “Organ Farmer” is built on drums that gallop away like a battalion of wild horses over the horizon and a triple guitar attack set to stun. It’s the type of sub-three-minute song you wish Hetfield and Co. still made.
Stacks Image 11496
>Thee Oh Sees – Face Stabber CD (Castle Face)
Face Stabber is Soundcloud hip-hop reversed, a far flung nemesis of contemporary country and flaccid algorithmic pop-barf. No songs about money or love are floating in the ether. Just memories, echoes, foggy blurs, blip-blop goes the scope, heavy funk, dystopia-punk canons, long jams, bloated solos dribbling down your caved-in chest. Human cattle like a beef avalanche, right on your burned out face hole. For fans of fried prog burn-out, squished old-school drool, double drums, lead weight bass, wizard keys (now with poison), old-ass guitar and horrible words with daft meanings. [Vinyl edition due September 13.]

>The Hold Steady – Thrashing Thru The Passion CD/LP (French Kiss)
The Hold Steady’s seventh album
collects five new songs alongside five of the nine singles the band has intermittently released since 2017. Thrashing Thru The Passion is a signature set of snarling electric guitars, chiming piano chords and the clever, deadpan observations of frontman Craig Finn.

>Ikebe Shakedown – Kings Left Behind CD/LP/Cassette (Colemine)
Ten years ago, Ikebe Shakedown began pushing the boundaries of instrumental music. Each new track and live set has sent them deeper into combining the primal elements of '70s soul, raw psychedelic style, and cinematic Western soundtracks with powerful grooves and soaring melodies.

>Zero 7 ‎– When It Falls [Reissue/2004] 2xCD/2xLP (New State Music)
Expanded CD (and double LP vinyl) reissue of the British electronica duo’s second album. Zero 7 were formed in 1997 by producers Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker. In 2001 their debut album
Simple Things was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

>Frank Black
–Frank Black
–Teenager Of The Year [Reissue/1994]
Recording his debut album during the hiatus and breakup of the Pixies in late-1992, frontman Black Francis inverted his stage persona for his solo work. Coproduced with Eric Drew-Feldman (Captain Beefheart/Pere Ubu), Frank let his inner rock historian loose on
Frank Black, channeling greats like Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, The Beach Boys & David Bowie in a thrilling way that felt like a natural next step on from Trompe Le Monde (the last Pixies album before they reconvened two decades later).

>WILCO - Ode to Joy (Indie Pink vinyl edition) LP
Ode to Joy- the 11th studio album from the pioneering Chicago rock band Wilco – will be released Oct. 4 via dBpm Records. The album features 11 new songs written and produced by Jeff Tweedy and recorded by Wilco at the bands' own Chicago studio dubbed The Loft.

"The record is, in a weird way, an ode; this terrible stuff is happening, this deepening sense of creeping authoritarianism that weighs on everybody's psyche on a daily basis, and you're allowed to feel a lot of things at once. And one thing that is worth feeling, that is worth fighting for, is your freedom to still have joy even though things are going to shit." - Jeff Tweedy

>Hiss Golden Messenger - Terms of Surrender (Peak Vinyl Edition) LP
M.C. says that he wanted to make Terms of Surrender “a wandering record. I wanted where we recorded it to mirror the searching spirit of the music.” Having written upwards of 40 songs—in motel rooms, his studio in Durham, and a secluded cottage outside of Charlottesville, Virginia—Taylor winnowed them down to the ten works that comprise Terms of Surrender. With regular collaborators—including Phil and Brad Cook, Josh Kaufman, and Matt McCaughan—and new friends like Jenny Lewis and Aaron Dessner (of The National), the crew decamped to Dessner’s Long Pond studio in upstate New York, Sound City in Los Angeles, and producer Roger Moutenot’s Haptown studio in Nashville to create the most fully realized and genre-defying Hiss Golden Messenger album to date.
