>Sunflower Bean – Twentytwo In Blue CD/LP/Cassette (Mom + Pop)
Sophomore album from the NY-based alt-rock band. While the trio remains a guitar band at its core, new and different textures shine on
Twentytwo In Blue. Sunflower Bean's diverse sound has allowed them to tour alongside DIIV, Best Coast, Pixes and Wolf Alice. "New York is still home to bands as varied as Sunflower Bean, whose music suggests what might have happened if psychedelia had emerged after punk and the Police rather than before." – The New York Times

>Kyle Craft – Full Circle Nightmare CD/LP+MP3 (Sub Pop)
Ever since his debut album
Dolls Of Highland was released in 2016, Kyle Craft has been a critic's dream. Based in Portland, Oregon he serves up all the observational, storytelling talent with none of the attitude that so often comes with male singer-songwriter territory. His second album, Full Circle Nightmare, is entirely autobiographical. Sonically, thematically, lyrically, it's a huge leap forward from his 2016 release.

>TY SEGALL - Freedom's Goblin (Black Vinyl Edition) LP
Freedom's Goblin is the new TY SEGALL album: 19 tracks strong, filling four sides of vinyl nonstop, with an unrestricted sense of coming together to make an album. Out JANUARY 26TH VIA DRAG CITY. The songs came in the flow of the year: days of vomit and days of ecstasy and escape too, and days between. The rulebook's been tossed, but Freedom's Goblin is thick with deep songwriting resources, be it stomper, weeper, ballad, screamer, banger or funker-upper, all diverted into new Tydentities in the name of love and loathing.

>Michael VM – The Happiest Man On Earth LP (Suah Sounds)
"Much like the juxtaposition of life with The Everymen (MVM's previous band), these songs were borne of a voice and a guitar, pensive, pained, hurting, yet they soon became dressed up in the joy and happiness of making music with your closest friends. As such the album is a reflection of the healing process I went through in the wake of losing my best friend, the darkness of death and loss, while at the same time honoring the lightness of love, the falling in love with the woman who would become my wife, in family and, of course, in the unfaltering, unwavering, unabashed oneness of true friendship."-MVM 2017
