>Apache Dropout – Heavy Window CD/LP (Magnetic South)
After three LPs and a clutch of 45s, Southern Indiana's Apache Dropout have loosened an adherence to the divine mono sound and forged a scaly stereo technique for
Heavy Window. This is a deeper, blown out swagger of peer-less rock & roll filtered through a lush three-dimensional spectrum. Just as their self-titled debut snapped heads back, Apache Dropout has proven again they can re-score the garage rock aesthetic and remain undisputed purveyors of true lysergic North American boogie.

>Sleeping Bag – Deep Sleep CD/LP (Joyful Noise)
Sleeping Bag’s third album takes the band into heavier, more epic territory. The sunny jangling guitars and fun whistle choruses are gone, obliterated in a full on fuzz-guitar assault.

>Souls Of Mischief – There Is Only Now 2xCD (Linear Labs)
The sixth album from legendary hip-hop group Souls Of Mischief is a unique cinematic '90s crime tale of love, loss, and revenge. A conceptual collaboration with
producer Adrian Younge and the first release on his freshly launched Linear Labs Records label, There Is Only Now gets its inspiration from a near fatal incident involving group members A-Plus, Opio, Tajai, and Phesto early in their careers. Set in 1994, the album serves as a bookend to two decades of music since the release of their seminal debut album, '93 Til Infinity. ''There Is Only Now'' sees the souls of Mischief crew members trading bars with a cast of hip-hop and soul luminaire.

>Electric Würms - Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk CD (WB)
Electric Würms is a prog-rock side project featuring The Flaming Lips' multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd on vocals, guitars, and keyboards and front man Wayne Coyne on bass and backed by Nashville psychedelic rock band Linear Downfall. Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk, will transport the listener into a new kind of transcendental orbit than one might expect from The Lips alone. Purple vinyl vinyl version due August 26.

>JJ – V CD/LP (Secretly Canadian)
"For those trying to keep track of the Swedish duo JJ — previously known by the lowercase iteration jj —
V is not its fifth album. (It's the third.) Then again, 2009's break-out jj n° 2 wasn't the group's second album, but rather its debut; N°3 followed. There's always been an internal logic underpinning what Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander do as JJ. On V, JJ strikes the most curious balance yet between such polar opposites, drawing from cringe-worthy soft pop, indie-rock, and cutting-edge R&B and hip-hop." – NPR
