LUNA music essentials...

>Georgia – Seeking Thrills CD/LP+MP3 (Domino)
Inspired by the Chicago House and Detroit Techno of the early ‘80s,
Seeking Thrills is a sonic feat of exploration and excellence, with textures that reflect Georgia's background in ethnic musicology, and hours upon hours spent rifling through records. Feminine without being saccharine, Georgia’s deep, brooding reflections carry us through euphoria, heartache and melancholy but always with the memory of the good times. “The singer and producer has absorbed Chicago house, Robyn-style pop and dub reggae, and refashioned them into an album about being ‘consumed by night’” – The Guardian

>Devon Gilfillian – Black Hole Rainbow CD/LP (Capitol)
Devon Gilfillian, hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the most exciting young artists in Nashville's burgeoning soul scene, releases his debut album. Produced by Grammy Award-winning studio wizard Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Kacey Musgraves, The War On Drugs) in his iconic Downtown LA studio, Black Hole Rainbow masters the art of blending varied influences, styles, and methods to create a powerful vibe and inspired sensibility. At its core, it's a hip-shaking record about love-on multiple levels. As Devon puts it, "with these songs I want to instill a sense of vulnerability... I want these songs to motivate listeners to take action in their lives, and to better themselves so they can go out and give love to others."

>Fat Freddie’s Drop – Special Edition Part 1 CD/2xLP (The Drop)
New Zealand juggernaut Fat Freddy's Drop return with a new studio album. Supremely crafted at Freddy's own BAYS studio in hometown Wellington, the deep musical and rich vocal layers reflect Freddy's inspiration from the black music lexicon and is a response to the crowd energy at their world dominating live shows.
Special Edition Part 1 is the first release of a long envisaged double album project with separate chapters.

>Chris Bell – I Am The Cosmos [Reissue/1992] LP (Omnivore)
After co-founding Big Star, the world only received two tracks of new music from Chris Bell during his lifetime – a 1978 single on the Car Records label run by Chris Stamey (dB's, Sneakers) titled "I Am The Cosmos" b/w "You And Your Sister". He would tragically be killed in a car accident later that same year. However, those were not the only tracks Bell had recorded in his post-Big Star years.

>Coil ‎– Stolen And Contaminated Songs [Reissue/1992] LP (Cold Spring)
A long-awaited reissue of Coil's 1992 album,
Stolen And Contaminated Songs, comprised of over 60 minutes of outtakes and unreleased songs, evolved during the recording sessions for their prior album, Love's Secret Domain (1991).
Stacks Image 11579
>Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross – Bird Box [OST] 4xLP (The Null Corporation)
Extended compositions and explorations created during the
Bird Box scoring sessions from Academy Award winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Over two hours of music completed in various hotel rooms before and after Nine Inch Nails' 2018 Cold, Black And Infinite US tour. The intense pace and pressures of nightly performances began to bleed through into the work. What started as a film score began to mutate and expand into something far beyond what you saw on the screen.

>DESTROYER - Have We Met (Seafoam Green Vinyl Edition) LP
In his 25 years performing under the Destroyer moniker, effusive art-rocker Dan Bejar has made some stone cold classics. Albums like Destroyer's Rubies (2006), Kaputt (2011) and ken (2017) have garnered huge love from critics & fans alike (Kaputt most recently being named one of the Top 25 Albums of the Decade by Pitchfork). His latest album features elements from all three of those albums with gauzy saxophones & synthesizers floating under Bejar's razor-sharp wit. But the roots of his new album bloomed out very un-Destroyer influences like period-specific Björk, Air, and Massive Attack!
