>The Raconteurs – Help Us Stranger LP (Third Man Edition—BLACK VINYL)
The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler – are back with their long-awaited new album,
Help Us Stranger, which serves as the Grammy-winning rock band's third studio LP and first new release in more than a decade. The 12-track collection sees the mighty combo reassembled, stronger and perhaps even more vital than ever before as they continue to push rock & roll forward into its future, bonding prodigious riffs, blues power, sinewy psychedelia, Detroit funk, and Nashville soul via Benson and White's uncompromising songcraft and the band's steadfast musical muscle. The pair wrote all of the songs on the record except the lone Donovan cover, "Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness)".

>TITUS ANDRONICUS - An Obelisk (Peak Vinyl Edition) LP
Patrick Stickles taps into the heart of '77 punk, glam, pub & classic rock for what may be the most rocking & straight-to-the-point album they've ever made, Bruising guitar licks & heartworn pop hooks steer the ship for a tight 40 minutes of classic rock 'n roll sounds; and who better to have assisting you in a journey like that than a master craftsman like Bob Mould (Husker Du, Sugar, etc)? Mould produced the album, guiding them over breathless sessions at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio, An Obelisk presents the sound of Titus Andronicus, rock band, at its most irreducible, as monolithic as the album’s titular monument.

Gold Past Life marks both an end and a beginning. It's the end of an unintentional thematic trilogy of records from Eric D. Johnson that began with 2014's EDJ (a solo record by name, but a Fruit Bats release in spirit) and hit an emotional peak with 2016's Absolute Loser.

>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.
