>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.
>>>Limited, indie-only Peak Vinyl includes coke bottle green color vinyl & large foldout poster.

>LUMINEERS - III (Opaque Silver Vinyl) LP
The new album III is audacious: every note, every syllable, and every moment of silence in between is emotionally charged. The album is darker in tone than previous albums and is presented in three chapters, with each one centering on one main character from a fictitious family known as the Sparks, who span three generations in the album’s storyline. III’s concept began while the band was writing in the Catskill mountains, where producer Simone Felice works. Mixing raw emotional themes with their ear-catching melodies, expressive vocals and trademark acoustic sound, III moves masterly in artistic directions not yet traveled by the band.
Written by the two founding members, Schultz and multi-instrumentalist Jeremiah Fraites, the album sees violinist/vocalist Lauren Jacobson officially joining the band. Her playing can be heard on the band’s previous two albums. She joins the touring lineup that includes pianist Stelth Ulvang, bassist/backing vocalist Byron Isaacs and multi-instrumentalist Brandon Miller. (After eight years, cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek left the group in 2018 to embark on a solo career.)
Regarding the new album, Fraites says, “This collection of songs worked out in a beautiful way, and I feel with this album we’ve really hit our stride.”

>Chastity Belt – Chastity Belt CD/LP (Hardly Art)
With the luxury of spending several weeks in the studio with Jay Som's Melina Duterte, Chastity Belt was able to experiment on their fourth record. The new self-titled collection is the work of the band playing "old songs, and trying new things on top of it," like adding more dynamic harmonies and violin. Lydia Lund, Gretchen Grimm, and Julia Shapiro all share lead vocals on different tracks on the album as well. The result is their most sonically developed and nuanced record yet; one that's not only a product of, but a series of reflections on what it means to take what you need and to understand yourself better.

>Brittany Howard – Jaime CD/LP (ATO)
As the frontwoman and guitarist for Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard has become one of music's most celebrated figures. In between albums and tours with Alabama Shakes, however, Howard grows restless. “To me, there is no time off – I’m a creative person and I need to create, or I just feel weird, not fully human,” she says. She’s channeled that relentless creativity into her solo debut,
Jaime. While Howard admits it was daunting, stepping out alone from her work with Alabama Shakes and revealing so much of herself, it was a necessary step. “I turned 30 and I was like, ‘What do I want the rest of my life to look like?’” she recalls. “Do I want to play the same songs until I’m 50 and then retire, or do I do something that's scarier for me?

>M83 – DSVII CD/2xLP (Mute)
“At first there was this vivid memory of Dungeons And Dragons, this childhood sensation of living in an imaginary world set in a faraway past or a lost future. I wanted to create some music that could be part of this adventure and journey with all its solitary knights, dreamy landscapes, strange animals, forgotten myths and old spells. Originally, the
Digital Shades project was supposed to be much more intimate - a collection of B-sides and unused tracks destined for the hardcore fan base. Digital Shades was the name chosen to dissociate it from a proper studio album, although it would be fully part of M83's discography. Digital Shades became an excuse to give a second life to some tracks instead of letting them disappear into the void. I wanted to create a production of ambient music that could evolve throughout the years.” – Anthony Gonzalez [Limited colored vinyl pressing also available.]

>Cassius – Dreems CD/2xLP (Caroline)
Twenty years on from their landmark debut 1999, which established the foundations of French touch, the duo of the late Philippe ‘Zdar' Cerboneschi and Hubert ‘Boom Bass' Blanc-Francard aka Cassius release their fifth and final opus,
Dreems. The album brings Cassius back to their original house sound, the one that has always fed their energetic DJ sets, but faded lately behind the sophisticated pop of previous albums. Back to basics, then, both in design and its influences, Dreems is a magical place with an organic sound and new subtleties that the initiates will appreciate, and longtime fans will cherish, in the wake of Zdar's tragic death in June 2019.

Written and produced by Michael Gira, leaving meaning. is Swans fifteenth studio album and features contributions from recent and former Swans, members of Angels of Light as well as guest artists Anna and Maria von Hausswolff, Ben Frost, The Necks, Baby Dee, and a Hawk and a Hacksaw.
Michael Gira explains, “leaving meaning. is the first Swans album to be released since I dissolved the lineup of musicians that constituted Swans from 2010 – 2017. Swans is now comprised of a revolving cast of musicians, selected for both their musical and personal character, chosen according to what I intuit best suits the atmosphere in which I’d like to see the songs I’ve written presented. In collaboration with me, the musicians, through their personality, skill and taste, contribute greatly to the arrangement of the material. They’re all people whose work I admire and whose company I personally enjoy.

>PRINCE - 1999 Remastered (Super Deluxe Edition ) 10-LP + DVD Set
Considered one of the most iconic and influential double albums in rock history, Prince’s "1999" was released at a major turning point in the artist’s career. After years of being relegated to the R&B charts, he experienced his first true crossover moment with the mega-hits “Little Red Corvette,” “1999,” and “Delirious,“ shattering barriers with his revolutionary blend of rock, funk, R&B and new wave pop, and making history by being one of the first black artists to have their videos in heavy rotation on MTV.
The songs included on "1999" were just a small sampling of the work that was pouring out of Prince in the intensely prolific period of 1981 and 1982. In addition to his own material, he was also working up tracks that he would give to his protégés Vanity 6 and The Time, and recording dozens of songs that would be stored for possible later use, archiving them in his growing vault of unreleased material.
