>Cage The Elephant – Unpeeled CD (RCA)
Cage The Elephant's new live album,
Unpeeled, was recorded over a series of intimate shows in cities including Los Angeles, Washington DC, Knoxville, and Nashville where the band performed in a stripped down arrangement with a string quartet and additional percussion. Unpeeled features 21-tracks: 18 curated songs from their past four albums plus three re-imagined versions of existing songs. Said frontman Matt Shultz about the inspiration behind the double live release: “Many times you're adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you don't realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song.” [Vinyl edition due August 25.]

>Lapalux – Ruinism CD/2xLP (Brainfeeder)
Throughout
Ruinism the British producer takes this exploration further, journeying onward to the more ominous limbo space between life and death. In this liminal space where the finite and infinite intermingle, Lapalux sounds more at home than ever. Much of Ruinism's inspiration was born out of a theatrical score Lapalux (aka Stuart Howard) wrote for the performance art piece Depart which was performed in an East London cemetery. The aptly named project served as genesis for a direction wrought with doom and melancholia. Ruinism is all sonic wreckage and rubble created using only hardware and real instruments. The sound simultaneously destroys and redeems itself across a tight and formidable 48-minutes. [Limited blue color vinyl pressing also available.]
Stacks Image 8139
>Manchester Orchestra – Black Mile To The Surface CD/2xLP+MP3 (Loma Vista)
Describing a rock record as "cinematic" usually implies a double-length, sprawling album with a full orchestra on every song; Manchester Orchestra's
A Black Mile To The Surface is cinematic in that it conjures worlds. There's magical surrealism at work, with songs about a boy with no ears ("The Alien") and the father/sleeping child callback of "The Sunshine." There's a story to parse here – three brothers, an abandoned wife and child, a mysterious journey through the depths of a miles-deep mine, a narrative of twists and turns, recurring characters, alternating timelines – but the songs and melodies stand on their own. [Deluxe color vinyl pressing with an etching on Side D also available.]

>Gillian Welch – The Harrow And The Harvest [2011] LP (Acony)
The long-awaited first pressing of Gillian Welch’s
The Harrow & The Harvest was mastered direct from the original tapes through custom Ortofon amplifiers to a Neumann VMS-80 cutting system and plated and pressed on standard-weight audiophile-quality vinyl.
Stacks Image 8039
>Dorothy Ashby - Hip Harp/On A Minor Grave 2xLP (Doxy)
A combined reissue of legendary jazz harpist and poly-instrumentalist Dorothy Ashby's
Hip Harp and In A Minor Groove, both released separately in 1958. Both albums feature Frank Wess. Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments.
Stacks Image 8055
>Link Wray - Link Wray [Reissue/1971] LP (Future Days Recordings)
Recorded in a shaky makeshift chicken shack in rural Maryland, Link Wray's eponymous 1971 solo album is a compelling and forward-looking piece of honest, handmade Americana. This album is vastly different from his previous work, foregoing instrumentals entirely. Instead, Wray, left with only one lung following a bout with tuberculosis in 1956, gives us his raw voice, full of spit and vinegar, as he blends elements of country, rock 'n' roll, roots, folk and gospel marked with fuzzy guitar and booming percussion.
Stacks Image 7935
>Roxy Music – Avalon [Reissue/1982] LP (Virgin)
Vinyl reissue of the eighth and final studio album by Roxy Music.
Avalon is widely considered one of their finest albums and filled with lush, elegant soundscapes that are far removed from the edgy pop of their early recordings. Features the singles “More Than This”, “Avalon”, and “Take A Chance With Me”.
