Josh Abbott Band – Until My Voice Goes Out CD (Pretty Damn Tough)
New release from the Texas country music band.

>The Accidentals
– Odyssey CD/LP (SME Masterworks)
“It wasn't all that long ago that the qualities valued most highly in the youthful sectors of folk-pop and folk-rock were earnestness and simplicity. This was music made with minimum fuss — all four-on-the-floor foot stomps, straight-ahead strumming and spirited sing-along choruses. The Accidentals were surely aware of that movement, though they'd barely reached high school in Traverse City, Mich., when Mumford & Sons blew up. But even back then, violinist Savannah Buist and cellist Katie Larson were occupied by making familiar MGMT and Led Zeppelin songs into pieces to which they could apply their classical chops. The Accidentals became a sprightly trio several years back with the addition of drummer Michael Dause. On their latest, which the three bandmates co-produced in partnership with Jason Lehning, a specialist in roots-inflected alt-pop, they display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression. The fact that all of that is in the mix doesn't, in fact, result in long songs. Most, including the closing instrumental suite, clock in under four minutes. They're just busier, more dynamic songs, animated by the tensions between aesthetic possibilities.” – NPR

>Banny Grove
– Cars In Control CD/7” (Nicey Music)
“Giddy and surreal synth-driven songs that fuse pointed social commentary with off-kilter melodies and teetering rhythms.”—Bandcamp New and Notable

>Beneath
– Ephemeris CD/LP (Unique Leader)
Third full length from the Icelandic death metal titans.

>Bobby Bland
– Here’s The Man!!! [Reissue/1962] CD/LP (Tempo)
Here's The Man!!! was originally released in 1962 on Duke Records - Houston's legendary R&B label run by the infamous Don Robey - and is the second LP from Bobby "Blue" Bland. Featuring one of his most enduring and classic hits, "Turn On Your Love Light", along with 10 other smoking R&B numbers - Here's The Man!!! is a fine showcase of one of the most influential and important R&B/soul singers of the 1960s.
>Cloakroom
– Time Well CD/LP (Relapse)
Grandiose and deeply insular, Cloakroom's second album is a work that transcends simple genre descriptors as the trio prove dually capable of conjuring lumbering walls of sound as well as forlorn Americana. Cloakroom occupies a compelling space between worlds on
Time Well, crafting its unique brand of thoughtfully heavy music.
>Reo Cragun
– Growing Pains CD (Capitol)
The emerging r ‘n’ bass artist releases his new mixtap.

>The Jerry Douglas Band
– What If CD/LP (Rounder/Concord)
Jerry Douglas, the 14x Grammy award winner who has played on over 2,000 separate recordings (Alison Krauss, Mumford & Sons, James Taylor, etc.), presents a new album with a unique sound and a brand-new outfit of musicians, hand-picked by Douglas himself. On
What If, Douglas decisively merges jazz inclinations with the bluegrass, country, blues, swing, rock, and soul he's spent his life absorbing and performing, forging a sound that flies beyond the boundaries of anything he - or anyone else - has done before. From the up-tempo combination of what Douglas calls 'bebop jazz and caveman jazz' on “Cavebop” to the symphonically sweeping title track, What If delves into areas unexplored by any other musician, much less by Dobro. The album also includes a funky, soulful take on Tom Waits' “2:19” and a blistering bluegrass-meets-jam-band reinvention of the classic “Hey Joe.” [Vinyl edition due September 15.]
>Judy Dyble & Andy Lewis
– Summer Dancing CD/LP (PIAS America)
Songwriter-player-producer Andy Lewis is introduced to Judy Dyble, erstwhile vocalist with folk luminaries Fairport Convention and proto-King Crimson founder who, after a somewhat extended stay out of music has been been making a low-key, experimental return. Connections completed, the pair draw from their rural-urban upbringings and like-minded interests in history and culture, early ideas are swapped electronically albeit fragments of tracks and lyrics that the pair have accumulated over the years. Weeks later and these formative ideas have evolved into
Summer Dancing – a kaleidoscopic collection of audio snapshots.
>Eluveitie
- Evocation II – Pantheon CD/LP (Nuclear Blast America)
Second album Swiss folk metallers.

>Rick Estrin & The Nightcats
- Groovin' In Greaseland CD (Alligator)
Wildly fun, musically fearless and bursting with bravado, Rick Estrin & The Nightcats have created one of the blues’ most instantly recognizable sounds and no-holds-barred styles. Featuring the world-class talents of harmonica master, songwriter and vocalist Rick Estrin, guitar wunderkind Chris “Kid” Andersen, keyboard wizard Lorenzo Farrell and dynamic drummer Alex Pettersen, Rick Estrin & The Nightcats serve up sharp and incisive original blues and gritty roadhouse rock ‘n’ roll.

>Eternal Boy
– Awkward Phase CD/LP (Four Chord Music)
New from the pop/punk outfit formerly known as The SpacePimps.

>Ghostpoet
– Dark Days + Canapés CD/LP (PIAS America)
Dark Days + Canapés is Ghostpoet's most defining album to date. Produced by Leo Abrahams, best known for his work with Brian Eno and Jon Hopkins, it delves even further into a fuller, guitar driven sound. Serendipity and experimentalism were embraced in the studio and several original ideas evolved or were supplanted by something unexpected. On “Freakshow” the addition of manic laughter from a gospel choir, who had turned up to sing on a different track, compounds the crazed nature of the song, whilst “Blind As A Bat...,” influenced by Talk Talk's Laughing Stock, saw string players invited to improvise with fragments of their performance sampled and overlaid to build something less structured, more wayward and reflective of the state of mind of the protagonist. [Limited white colored vinyl pressing also available.]
>Gravetemple
– Impassable Fears CD/LP (Svart)
Imploding, abstracting and distorting the concepts of ceremony, volume and density since 2006, surrealist, esoteric and experimental rock band Gravetemple (Oren Ambarchi, Stephen O'Malley and Attila Csihar) return with a new album.

>Grizzly Bear
– Painted Ruins CD/2xLP+MP3 (RCA)
Grizzly Bear release
Painted Ruins, their highly anticipated fifth full-length album and first for RCA Records. The band – Chris Bear, Ed Droste, Daniel Rossen and Chris Taylor – spent the better part of two years writing and recording the 11 new compositions on Painted Ruins. Taylor produced the album and it was mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War On Drugs, Weezer). Sessions took place at Allaire Studios in upstate New York and various locations around Los Angeles, including Taylor's own Terrible Studios. Rolling Stone called the record's lead single “Three Rings” “spellbinding” while Spin exclaimed that the band “strike gold” with straightforward second single “Mourning Sound.” Painted Ruins follows the group's critical and commercial 2012 breakthrough Shields.
>Gunplay
– Fix Tape CD (X-ray)
Fresh off the success of his sophomore album, FL-based rapper and Rick Ross protégé, Gunplay, drops his 2017 mixtape which includes 11 new tracks featuring the ferocious flow that earned Gunplay collaborations with Pharell Williams, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Wayne.

>Horrific
– Your Worst Nightmare [Reissue/2009] CD (Hell’s Headbangers)
A bizarro mix of ‘80s heavy metal, thrash, punk, and death metal. [Vinyl edition due September 15.]

>Ray Wylie Hubbard
- Tell The Devil I'm Gettin' There As Fast As I Can CD (Bordello)
Whether or not you subscribe to the adage that the devil always has the best music, you can take it on faith that anytime he pops up from a cameo in a Ray Wylie Hubbard song, the results are gonna be pretty damned entertaining. And as any fan of the Hubbard cannon knows, Old Scratch pops up in his songs a lot nearly as often as all of Hubbard's wise-cracking black birds, lyrical and musical nods to Lightnin' Hopkins, bad-ass women (usually Hubbard's own wife, Judy), and a myriad of other grifters, ruffians, and scrappy cats of the gnarly and general lowdown variety. Somewhere or another on just about every Ray Wylie Hubbard album, the devil gets his due.

>Interpol
– Our Love To Admire [Reissue/2007] CD+DVD/2xLP/2xLP+DVD (Capitol)
Digitally remastered 10th Anniversary edition expanded with a DVD featuring their 2007 performance at London Astoria. [Double heavyweight vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket including custom inner sleeves also available. Deluxe vinyl edition adds the DVD.]

>Jethro Tull
– Songs From The Wood [Reissue/1977] CD (Rhino/Parlophone)
Single-disc Steven Wilson mix.

>Kacy & Clayton
– The Siren’s Song CD/LP+MP3 (New West)
“When you grow up in a remote region of Saskatchewan, Canada, where the nearest record store is a five-hour drive, an imagination comes in handy. That's how cousins Kacy Anderson and Clayton Linthicum – aka Kacy & Clayton – coped with life in the Wood Mountain Uplands, where rolling hills outnumbered neighbors and small-town subversion hid in the verdant sheen. And, on their last LP Strange Country, they told tales of vengeful, murderous women, unwanted babies and mysterious spirits, all housed in their breed of both eerie and ethereal folk, unique enough to catch the interest of Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, who produced their forthcoming album The Siren's Song. With production from Tweedy, [album single] ‘The Light of Day’ finds the duo morphing into full-band territory, giving their sound a less pastoral, more psychedelic sheen along the lines of Gram Parson's
Grievous Angel, Buffalo Springfield or Sir Douglas Quintet if Linda Perhacs was at the wheel, with Anderson's voice leaping from a sweet mountain warble to full-on Grace Slick belt.” – Rolling Stone
>Katie Kern
– Blues For The Highway CD (Wolf)
By coincidence watching the Ry Cooder movie
Crossroads Kern became infatuated with the history of blues, especially the outstanding music of Robert Johnson. To learn how to play guitar solos she listened to the CD of B. B. King’s Live In Cook County Jail. Other strong influences include Bonnie Raitt and Mississippi John Hurt.
>Kitty In A Casket
– Rise CD/LP (Rodeostar)
This Austrian band takes a firm stand with their melodic punk rock, from radical to emotional, from undaunted to sensitive, from fast and hard to tender and susceptible.

>KMFDM
– Hell Yeah CD/2xLP (earMUSIC)
For over a quarter of a century KMFDM is the epitome and synonym for industrial rock.
Hell Yeah is their first new album in four years. [Vinyl edition pressed at 45rpm for maximum fidelity.]
>Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer
– Not Dark Yet CD (Silver Cross)
Not Dark Yet provides a potent look at the sisters' individual and collective artistry through eclectic song choices from writers ranging from the Louvin Brothers, Nick Cave, Kurt Cobain, and back to Jessie Colter. Shelby and Allison wrap their arms around the past, plant their feet in the present, and nod toward what's around the bend with the co-written “Is It Too Much” which closes out the ten-song set. [Vinyl edition due September 15.]
>Lyte
– Psychopathic Monstar CD (Psychopathic)
Lyte is the newest artist signed to Psychopathic Records.
Monstar is available in red, green, and blue versions, each with its own unique opening track.
>Major Lazer
– Know No Better CDEP (M-Theory Music)

>Dent May
– Across The Multiverse CD/LP+MP3 (Carpark)
Following the lead of musical-polymaths-with-LA-ties before him like Brian Wilson, Van Dyke Parks, and Harry Nilsson, Dent May's style on the magical mystery tour de force
Across The Multiverse will be familiar to fans of his previous work. Yet there's something more refined about this collection... Stately strings mingle with boogie piano like old friends. Synths weave a celestial backdrop throughout. Every verse, bridge and chorus in its right place, giving it the unmistakable feel of a true songwriting craftsman at work. Lyrically Dent has never been sharper, musing on themes like modern romance (“Picture On A Screen,” “Face Down In The Gutter Of Your Love”), existential dread (“Dream 4 Me,” “I'm Gonna Live Forever Until I'm Dead”), and the distance to the moon (“Distance To The Moon”) as he searches for meaning among the infinite scrolling feeds of our 21st century augmented reality. The title track, a duet with Frankie Cosmos, is a deep space love song about finding love beyond impossible boundaries. [Yellow colored vinyl pressing also available.]
>Mosquitos
– Mexican Dust CD (Six Degrees)
A unique blend of Brazilian influences, American pop smarts and witty, oddball arrangements.

>Mozzy
– 1Up Top Ahk CD (Mozzy)

>Hugh Mundell

>Phylactery
– Necromancy Enthroned CD (Dark Decent)
Debut album of wicked and brutal Canadian thrash metal.

>Raspberries
– Pop Art Live 2xCD (Omnivore)
“Having waited this long to witness the impossible—Raspberries live—we showed up two hours early, parking our car in the empty parking lot . . . [and] moments before the house lights went down, we looked at each other and said the words that we never thought we would ever say: ‘We’re at a Raspberries concert’ (Ken Sharp and Bernie Hogya from the liner notes to
Pop Art Live). November 26, 2004, the stage was set for a reunion most thought could never happen—the Raspberries live in concert. Over 30 years since the original four members of Raspberries last played together, Pop Art Live captures opening night, at Cleveland’s House Of Blues. Founding members Eric Carmen, Wally Bryson, David Smalley, and Jim Bonfanti powerfully muscle through 28 slices of pure rock ’n’ roll heaven, bringing to life the legacy of power pop’s founding fathers. Pop Art Live contains live versions of songs from all four of the Raspberries’ classic original studio albums including the hits “Go All The Way,” “I Wanna Be With You,” “Let’s Pretend,” and “Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)” as well as perfect renditions of timeless favorites by The Beatles and The Who. [Vinyl edition due November 17.]
>C-Schultz
– Frühe Jahre CD (Unseen Worlds)
Frühe Jahre is the first-time reissue of C-Schulz's early work from late 1980s and early '90s. Combining the cathartic sounds of industrial, early techno, and innovative pop with inspiration from acousmatic, new music, and Dada, Schulz's music is a prime example of the Cologne experimental music scene of the time. Rhythmic delights, outlandish juxtapositions and a sustained, unresolved, aurally-fascinating tension evoke dramatic, film-like meditations.
>Slick Rick
– The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick [Reissue/1988] CD (Get On Down)
CD reissue of the debut album from the Jamaican/London-born hip-hop artist.

>Sojourner
– Empire Of Ashes CD/LP (Avantgarde)
As equally majestic as it is furious, Empires of Ash channels that epic spirit of black metal bands like Summoning, Saor, and even Emperor. What really sets Sojourner apart from their contemporaries though is how well they weave the folk instruments into their songs; a variety of flutes, piano, and synths pour personality into the music.

>Billy Jo Spears
– C’est La Vie CD (Goldenlane)
The lost album from the country legend, recorded in the early '80s but never released.

>Thy Art Is Murder
– Dear Desolation CD/LP (Nuclear Blast America)
Combining classic and authentic death metal elements that invoke the renegade, spirit-crushing, monstrosity of early Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse and Decapitated with the precision rhythmic assault of Meshuggah and the breakdown-infused bounce of The Black Dahlia Murder, Australian metal crew Thy Art Is murder has redefined a once cast aside and maligned sub-genre, proudly re-energizing and representing the best in extremity. [Two limited edition colored vinyl pressings are available: grey and bronze and orange.]

>UNKLE
– The Road: Part 1 CD/2xLP (Cooking Vinyl)
After a seven-year hiatus, James Lavelle returns with a new album from UNKLE.
The Road: Part 1 is the project’s fifth album to date and long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s Where Did The Night Fall. the album taps into the multicultural landscape of modern London and sets out to unite an eclectic mix of ideas, cultures, and genres under the UNKLE umbrella to create something unique. Lavelle explains, “I wanted to make a record that I hadn’t been able to before, going back to the roots of where I came from, with a foot in modern London.” The lengthy list of contributors includes Queens Of The Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen and Jon Theodore, Primal Scream’s Andrew Innes, The Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss, Dhani Harrison, Keaton Henson, ESKA, and long-time UNKLE collaborator Mark Lanegan.
>Chelsea Williams
– Boomerang CD/LP+MP3 (Blue Élan)

>Victoria Williams & The Loose Band
- Victoria Williams & The Loose Band Town Hall 1995 CD (Fire America)
Released on vinyl for RSD 2017, this live archive release is now available on CD. In 1995 Victoria Williams toured with the Loose band. Critics swooned and acclaimed her live shows as "beautiful" and "intimate", set lists varied every night, special guests happened along.

>Steven Wilson
– To The Bone CD/2xLP/Blu-ray (Caroline)
Wilson’s (Porcupine Tree) fifth album is a gloriously dynamic modernist pop record. It is a hat-tip to the hugely ambitious progressive pop records of his youth (think Peter Gabriel's
So, Talk Talk's Colour Of Spring, Tears For Fears’ Seeds Of Love). [Hi-res Blu-ray audio edition also available.]
>Dizzy Wright
– The Golden Age 2 CD (Dizzy Wright)
Dizzy Wright finally drops his long-awaited
The Golden Age 2 album, which marks as his third solo studio project in his lustrous career. The former Funk Volume signee’s new release provides a whopping total of 18 tracks, which hear features from the likes of Chellé, Euroz, Big K.R.I.T., G Perico, Reezy and many more.
>Yawpers
– Boy In A Well CD/LP+MP3 (Bloodshot)
The Yawpers is a rock 'n' roll trio from Denver, Colorado. Their name is derived from the Walt Whitman poem
Song Of Myself: “I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.” The Yawpers play in a unique setting of two acoustic guitar players and drummer, yet their music is played with raucous glee comparable to seeing a metal band. Their third album, Boy In A Well, sounds like Alan Lomax using his field recorder to capture Mance Lipscomb ripping a laced joint with the Cramps and strapping on their instruments to let it fly. It's a complex concept album - manically conceived, historically situated, emotionally underscored and set in a plot-driven fictive universe. It's demented, unpredictable, taboo, ambitious, and yet distinctively cohesive.

>Roy Ayers Ubiquity
– Lifeline [Reissue/1977] LP (Polydor)
One of the most visible jazz vibraphonists of the 1960s, then an R&B bandleader in the 1970s and '80s, Roy Ayers' reputation is now that of one of the prophets of acid jazz, a man decades ahead of his time. Perhaps acid jazz would have emerged even if Ayers had never existed, but it certainly would have sounded different. Scores of DJs, hip-hoppers, acid jazzers, and others have incorporated samples of music created by Ayers into their own work, making his sound an integral part of these emerging musical forms.

>Bobby Bland
– Two Steps From The Blues [Reissue/1961] LP (Tempo)
Bobby Bland could both comfort and chill, sometimes in the same song. He does so on this undeniably classic album's "Lead Me On," which begins with the line "You know how it feels, you understand / What it is to be a stranger in this unfriendly land" and ends softly two minutes later with the promise "I'll follow you." Such drama, coupled with a mellow soulfulness, is the norm on
Two Steps. Bland has been called "the Sinatra of the blues" more than once, and this album is the best explanation ever for that appellation.
>Mary J. Blige
– Strength Of A Woman 2xLP (Capitol)
Released this past April on CD – now available on vinyl. The 13

>Cheap Trick
– We’re All Alright! 2xLP (Big Machine)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Cheap Trick's eighteenth studio album
We're All Alright! follows 2016's acclaimed Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello. Features the electrifying lead single, “Long Time Coming,” which Billboard raved is, “a crunchy hard rocker driven by a Kinks-flavored riff...a bit of a one-song tribute to Cheap Trick's influential forebears.” Cheap Trick is an indisputable American institution, beloved around the globe since 1974 for their instantly identifiable, hugely influential, brand of pop rock ‘n' roll. The band – Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass guitar), and Daxx Nielsen (drums) – are true pioneers with an unparalleled streak of certifiably classic tunes, from “He's A Whore,” “California Man” and “Dream Police” to “Surrender,” “I Want You To Want Me” and the worldwide No. 1 hit single, “The Flame.” 2016 saw Cheap Trick's long awaited induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

>Dayseeker
- Dreaming Is Sinking /// Waking Is Rising LP (Spinefarm)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Dayseeker's conceptual third full-length album maintains an inimitable and infectious intensity while representing a marked evolution for the Orange County group. Since 2012, the group has quietly sent shockwaves throughout the scene. The DNA of this story is an amalgam of the coma suffered by a friend of Rory Rodriguez's ex-girlfriend, Alex Garland's book
The Coma, and Boys Night Out's 2005 concept record Trainwreck – a personal favorite of the frontman.
>Debt Neglector
– Atomicland LP (Smart Punk)

>Haim
– Something To Tell You 2xLP (Columbia)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. When the time came to record their sophomore album, Haim decided to “go in and record as a band, keeping it a little more organic. That was kind of a mission statement for the album” offered Danielle Haim. The group first announced the release of
Something To Tell You with an in-studio video version of album track “Right Now,” which was shot and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, Boogie Nights). Haim then released the single “Want You Back,” which Rolling Stone described as having “a Hot 100 ready sheen.” Pitchfork gave “Want You Back” its coveted Best New Track saying “Haim are pulling the rug out from under our feet in the run-up to releasing their second album.” Entertainment Weekly declared “Want You Back” sees HAIM returning to their sonic roots as a funky, pop-inspired trio, complete with groovy strings, sprightly percussion, a soulful chorus, and a spritz of electronic sheen.”

>Jack Off Jill
– Sexless Demons [1998] LP (Cargo)
First-time on vinyl for the Florida based outfit’s debut album (originally on Risk Records). The LP features the bonus track “Angels F##k.” Although Jack Off Jill may never have topped the charts or headlined Madison Square Garden, their contribution to gothic-alt rock as well as the grrl band revolution isn't any less important.

>Jay-U Experience
– Enough Is Enough [Reissue/1977] LP (Soundway)
Originally released by EMI Nigeria in 1977, this now-rare album was written by Jay-U and engineered by disco-boogie artist Goddy Oku. Opening with the up-tempo reggae number "Reggae Deluxe", the album descends into mind-blowing jazz-funk featuring several killer saxophone solos.

>Mike Krol
- Mike Krol Is Never Dead: The First Two Records 2xLP+MP3 (Merge)
On
Mike Krol Is Never Dead: The First Two Records, we catch up—with the past, that is. Indeed, Turkey, released in 2015, is Chapter 3 of the Krol saga; here, finally, are its long-lost predecessors. Self-released in 2011, vinyl 10” I Hate Jazz was the opening salvo of World War Krol. Only 500 copies were pressed; they were given away to anyone who showed interest (and many who showed none whatsoever). Including Krol classics like “Fifteen Minutes” and “Like A Star,” the record has long been unavailable. His second vinyl 10” Trust Fund followed in 2013; its 500 copies sold out on the ensuing tour, fueling a mini-mania that would elevate it to cult status. This set includes both records on freshly pressed Merge vinyl; an illuminating selection of digital outtakes, demos, and B-sides; and a fold-out poster showcasing a selection of Mike Krol ephemera.

>Nosound
– A Sense Of Loss [2009] 2xLP+CD (Kscope)
Riding off the success of his 2016 opus
Scintilla, Nosound songwriter Giancarlo Erra releases A Sense Of Loss for the first time on vinyl. The album, originally released as a CD/DVD in 2009, was Nosound's follow up to 2008's Lightdark and built on its predecessor by introducing a more alternative post-rock element to Erra's ever evolving sound. Giancarlo describes the album as a "move from the classic 'rock' (or rock ambient) approach used in Lightdark to a more unique sound, with influences from more contemporary alt and post rock."
>Porcupine Tree
– Voyage 34 [Reissue/2000] 2xLP (Kscope)
Voyage 34 is an instrumental composition from ‘92/’93, split into four phases and lasting for over an hour.

>James Blunt
– The Afterlove [Extended Version] CD (Atlantic)
The Afterlove sees Blunt melding contemporary pop production with his classic brand of personal songcraft, equal parts heartfelt poignancy and self-deprecating wit. The chart-topping troubadour enlisted a who's who of modern talent to join him in writing and recording the album, among them such icons and studio luminaries as Ed Sheeran, Ryan Tedder, Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran), Johnny McDaid (Example, Biffy Clyro), Stephan Moccio (Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd), and MoZella (Miley Cyrus, One Direction).
>The Bombay Royale
– Run Kitty Run CD/LP (Hope Street)
A retro Bollywood fueled rampage through psyche-surf, 80's electro-pop and desert rock,
Run Kitty Run is, like its predecessors, conceived as the soundtrack to a lost film. The music conjures into life a devastated futuristic landscape peopled by robotic horsemen, killer satellites and grinning sadhus. Overlaid with vocals in Hindi, Bengali and English, the resulting soundtrack is one of love and betrayal, hopeless escapes and unlikely salvation.
>Bonobo
– One Offs… Remixes & B-Sides [Reissue/2002] CD/2xLP (Tru Thoughts)

One Offs offered Bonobo fans the chance to get their mitts on rare 12” and 7” cuts, as well as some truly exceptional remixes.
>Dennis Callaci
– The End Of Night CD (Shrimper)
A knee play, a low budget opera, a tone poem with broken keys,
The End Of Night follows up last year's Bed Of Light, about which Tiny Mix Tapes wrote: “Poetry from a lofi pulpit, really, though Callaci seems to technically be singing hymns of non-redemption that's too fleeting yet perfect because it'll keep you coming back.”

24 previously unreleased radio performances from the ‘50s.

>The Cribs
– 24-7 Rockstar Sh!t CD/LP (House Arrest)

Journal with a ten-track extended version. Flipped beats and layered samples abound, placed in compelling arrangements that affirm the producer’s pensive attention to detail.
>Dead Rock West
– More Love CD (Omnivore)
For their fourth album, the California vocal duo of Cindy Wasserman and Frank Lee Drennen joined forces with producer John Doe to create an album that places their achingly beautiful signature vocals and harmonies in finely etched rock, alt-country and pop settings.

>The Districts
– Popular Manipulations CD/LP (Fat Possum)
The distinctly intense sound of the Pennsylvania-borne band's third full-length – charging guitars, thunderous drumming, and Grote's searing vocals – was brought on by a few cited influences, from shoegaze's aggressive swirl to the Velvet Underground's impeccable drone-rock sound. There's a distinctly Canadian flavor to this brand of indie rock, too; Spencer Krug's anthemic, lushly inscrutable work in Wolf Parade and his defunct Sunset Rubdown side project comes to mind, as does 2000s Toronto barnburners The Diableros' overlooked 2006 gem
You Can't Break The Strings In Our Olympic Hearts. [Limited colored vinyl pressing also available.]
>Downtown Boys
– Cost Of Living CD/LP+MP3/Cassette (Sub Pop)
Downtown Boys began by combining revolutionary ideals with boundless energy and contagious, inclusive fun, and their resolve has only strengthened as their sound and audience have grown.
Cost Of Living is their third full-length, recorded with Guy Picciotto (Fugazi; producer of Blonde Redhead, The Gossip). Picciotto fostered the band’s improvisational urges while pulling the root of their music to the forefront: unflinching choruses, fearlessly confrontational vocals, and the sense that each song will incite the room into action, sending bodies into motion that were previously thought to have atrophied.
>Lindsay Ell
– The Project CD (Stoney Creek)
Debut album from the country singer/songwriter, produced by Sugarland‘s Kristian Bush.

>Luke Ferrari

>Ross Goldstein
– Inverted Jenny CD/LP (Northern Spy)
Goldstein’s second album opens with a trifecta of Van Dyke Parks-tinged open road songs, but even in the joyful discovery of these songs there's the sense that they're viewed from a loner's perspective. This feeling only grows as things shift from roadside distractions to the plush instrumentals and gentle vibes that make up the record's second half. Gorgeous arrangements set up a playful conversation between warm synths, stoned guitar leads, meticulously placed touches of chamber pop orchestration and even sounds of the natural world from Ross' own field recordings, always buzzing with life.

>Gross Reality
– Escaping Gravity CD (Divebomb)
Gross Reality’s brand of tight, high-energy thrash strikes a constant balance between focused aggression and emphatic melody, at times dipping its toe into more ambitious and prog-leaning waters, sure to pique the interest of those in search of more technical and complex fare.

>Guided By Voices
– How Do You Spell Heaven CD/LP (GBV Inc.)
Hot on the heels of the smothered-in-plaudits double album
August By Cake comes this hot and heavy fifteen-tune long player, a melody-dense thwack to the earholes that will both energize and deplete your body of its remaining music-appreciation enzymes.
>Hamell On Trial
– Tackle Box CD/LP+MP3+CD (New West)
Hamell on Trial, the musical alias of New York-based poet and folk punk hero Ed Hamell, returns with his tenth album. A one-man explosion, Hamell on Trial is a dynamic performance informed by politics, passion, intelligence and the all-important sense of humor. [Vinyl edition includes a bonus live CD.]

>Headland
– True Flowers From This Painted World CD+DVD/LP+DVD (Headland Music)
With an almost distinct Australian fever to its pitch,
True Flowers ebbs and flows like the proverbial tide it is soundtracking; the players of this collective have a long history in the underground/mainstream music scene in Australia, and with this record have created a similar cinematic/avant garde-pop as created by the likes of Calexico, Friends of Dean Martinez, Boxhead Ensemble, Lullaby For The Working Class, and even Pink Floyd and Neil Young. Includes a DVD of found super 8 film fragments depicting surfing and coastal culture in and around Lennox Head, Australia in the 1970s.
>Hinder

New album from the multi-platinum rockers.

>Steve Howe
- Anthology 2: Groups & Collaborations 3xCD (Rhino)
Anthology 2 spans more than 50 years of Howe’s prolific career with 56 tracks that mix hits with a generous selection of unreleased recordings, including several with Keith West, who was Howe’s bandmate in both Tomorrow and The In Crowd.

>Joel Jerome
– Cosmic Bear Jamboree CD/LP+MP3 (Elite)
Joel’s music easily evokes references such as Mac Demarco, Beck, Deerhunter or Ariel Pink. His dreamy psych features wide background choirs full of reverb and warm vintage guitar sounds.

>Paul Kelly
– Life Is Fine CD/LP (Cooking Vinyl)
Paul Kelly lifts the electric guitar out of the case again and unveils one of the most powerful albums of his career. Engineered and co-produced by Steve Schram,
Life Is Fine is preceded by the rock-flavored lead single “Firewood And Candles,” a rollicking track reminiscent of his finest ‘80s recordings, a feeling which permeates the entire collection.
>Ke$ha
– Rainbow CD/LP (RCA)
Kesha’s first new album in five years features Eagles Of Death Metal, Dolly Parton, and more, including a track produced by Ben Folds and artwork designed by Robert Beatty.

>King Jammy
– Waterhouse Dub CD (Greensleeves)
Returning to the ring with
Waterhouse Dub, a brand-new slab of megaton dub, King Jammy, the undisputed heavyweight champion of drum and bass, draws for a crucial selection of his toughest rub-a-dub specials to deliver 15 mind-destroying dub knock-outs. [Vinyl edition due August 25.]
>Lapalux
– Ruinism CD/2xLP (Brainfeeder)
Released on vinyl two weeks ago – now available on CD. 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.
>Live
– Mental Jewelry [25th Anniversary Edition] 2xCD/LP (Radioactive)
Multi-platinum selling Pennsylvania band Live reissue their debut album to commemorate its 25th anniversary. The package includes the remastered studio album produced by Talking Heads’ Jerry Harrison.

[Single-disc, first-time vinyl pressing also available.]

>The Lurking Fear
– Out Of The Voiceless Grave CD/LP (Century Media)
Death metal to the core, this Swedish band’s music is heavy, dirty, organic and warm in stark contrast to many modern-day productions. Pure death metal in the vein of Autopsy, (early) Death, Morbid Angel, Possessed, and Repulsion. [Limited 180gm colored vinyl pressing also available.]

>Freddie McKay
– Picture On The Wall [Reissue1971] CD/2xLP (Studio One)
Picture On The Wall is Freddie McKay's first album, originally released by Studio One in 1971. The LP served as the first real introduction to the singer for the reggae public after a series of unsuccessful singles. McKay's untimely death in 1986 cut short a promising career, but here the listener can rediscover the greatness of one of reggae's unsung heroes.
>Medusa 1975
– Rising From The Ashes CD/LP (Svart)
A combination of their original proto-metal style with straight ahead rock and prog.

>Milo
- Who Told You to Think??!!?!?!?! CD (Ruby Yacht)
New release from the iconoclastic east coast rapper. Found in gardens of intricate tones and soulfully abstract beats, vortexes of unique meaning spiral from Milo's pen.

[Vinyl edition due October 6.]

– Good Time [OST] CD/2xLP (Warp)
Rapturously received by Cannes film critics,
Good Time is directed by Josh and Benny Safdie and stars Robert Pattinson (in a widely regarded career best performance) and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The hypnotic crime thriller follows Pattinson’s Connie in a twisted odyssey through the New York underworld in a desperate attempt to get his brother out of jail. Oneohtrix Point Never received the prestigious Cannes Soundtrack Award at this year’s 70th anniversary edition of the festival for his visceral original score. OPN was in competition with the likes of Jonny Greenwood, Jed Kurzel and Ibrahim Maalouf and took home the celebrated prize.
>Buck Owens
– Live From Austin TX CD+DVD (New West)
Recorded October 23, 1988 KLRU-TV, Austin, TX. [Vinyl edition due September 8.]

>Jeremy Pinnell
– Ties Of Blood And Affection CD (Sofaburn)
Pinnell’s songs are shot through with honest and classic elements; rooted in his steady acoustic guitar, the tunes chug along in a spring-reverb dream from somewhere between, say, 1955 and 1975 - unearthing a sweet secret cache of songs that “Waylon Jennings might have written if he had cut a record with Alex Chilton” (Portland Tribune).

>Poison Blood
– Poison Blood CD/LP (Relapse)
A collaboration between Jenks Miller (Horseback) and Neill Jameson (Krieg). A dark and low-fi exercise in mystic, minimalistic black metal.

>David Rawlings
– Poor David’s Almanack CD/LP+MP3 (Acony)
Guitar man David Rawlings leaves the Machine moniker behind for his third album,
Poor David’s Almanack, a wry mixture of acoustic and electric performances rich in ageless American vernacular. Gloriously captured on analog tape by studio wizards Ken Scott and Matt Andrews, the ten new songs took shape in a rollicking weeklong session at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee where Rawlings and longtime compatriot Gillian Welch (who also designed the cover art) joined together with Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith to produce an album for all seasons.
>Rico Rodriguez & Friends
- Unreleased Early Recordings: Shuffle & Boogie 1960 CD/10” (Dubstore)
Previously unreleased early shuffle and boogie recordings from the ‘Man From Wareika’: Rico Rodriguez. One of the most talented musicians of his generation, the trombonist was a key player and founding father of Jamaican music who went on to establish ska in Britain in the early ‘60s and then add authenticity to the Two Tone ska revival of the late ‘70s.

>Frankie Rose
– Cage Tropical CD/LP (Slumberland)
The result of an existential odyssey, Frankie Rose's fourth album is awash with vintage synths, painterly effects pedals, upside down atmosphere and reverberating vocals. [Limited edition white vinyl pressing also available.]

>Emily Saliers
– Murmuration Nation CD (MRI Associated)
“What's a 53-year-old woman doing making her first solo record?” muses Saliers, best known as one half of the iconic duo Indigo Girls. In this 'post-fact' era in which we find ourselves living today, Saliers' fearless voice and insightful perspective feel more vital and relevant than ever before. The songs also reveal a new side of Saliers' artistry, one that even her most ardent fans might not expect to hear. [Vinyl edition due August 25.]

>Sheer Mag
– Need To Feel Your Love CD/LP (Wilsuns RC/Static Shock)
Recently released on vinyl – now available on CD. Sheer Mag's full-length debut sounds like a mix of a classic '70s rock, power pop and obscure English DIY. Think of the power pop delight of Protex, the lo-fi nature of The Seize, the riffs of Thin Lizzy and the powerful female vocals of Suzi Quatro.

>Shooting Guns
– Flavour Country CD/LP (Riding Easy)
While Canadian sextet Shooting Guns is known (and oft-nominated) for their film soundtrack work (like Netflix hit
WolfCop), Flavour Country is the band's fastest, heaviest and most visceral material - a collection of anthems to jettison from this universe into the multiverse. The album features some of the band's most atmospheric sounds: there are slight hints of Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western twang amidst the looping Meddle-era Pink Floyd heavy psych and driving drone reminiscent of Bobby Beausoleil's belladonna laced soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's Lucifer Rising.
>Slits
– Return Of The Giant Slits [Reissue/1981] CD (Real Gone Music)
Already far removed from the male-dominated, louder-faster ethos of punk rock, The Slits, with new drummer Bruce Smith of The Pop Group and multi-instrumentalist Steve Beresford in tow, added world music and free jazz to Ari Up’s Ono-esque ululations, Viv Albertine’s skittering guitar, and Tessa Pollitt’s dubwise bass riddims. Predictably, Sony dropped the record like a hot potato, not even bothering to release it in the U.S., and it has only been intermittently available on CD in the 35-plus years since. [Vinyl edition due September 1.]

>Luke Sital-Singh
– Time Is A Riddle CD/LP (House Arrest)
“London based singer-songwriter Luke Sital-Singh’s second full-length is a heartbreakingly emotive record. At times easy listening due to its graceful melody, at others uncomfortably affecting, this album is up there in the Julien Baker realms of super high-quality solo songwriting.” – The Fat Angel Sings

>Ben Sollee
– Ben Sollee and Kentucky Native CD (Soundly Music, LLC)
Tracing the origins of a traditional American genre back to early immigrants, Sollee takes a nontraditional approach, blending the influences of early Irish and Scottish musicians with the rhythms of Mexico, Africa and India. Inspired by the interactions and collaborations of string musicians from all walks of life,
Ben Sollee and Kentucky Native is Sollee's most personally revealing work and a reflection of his native Kentucky, a place like many others, that's still helping refine the ever-changing Bluegrass genre. Sollee and his bandmates recorded the album in a cabin at the Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest in Clermont, KY with a mobile, analog studio and with just a few overdubs. [Vinyl edition due September 1.]
>Somerdale
– Maggie Says It Again CD (Jem)
“Insanely catchy, meticulously crafted, and hook-filled” fourth album from the New Jersey band.

>So Much Light
– Oh Yuck CD/LP+MP3 (ANTI-)
So Much Light unites the electronic indie charms of Toro Y Moi and Flume with the courage and swagger of R&B stars like Neyo and The Weeknd. By seamlessly combining soul with exceedingly intelligent and thoughtfully-arranged production and textures, Verrett has expanded the boundaries of conventional genres.

>Spacemen 3
- For All The F**ked-up Children Of This World We Give You Spacemen 3 [Reissue/1995] CD (Space Age)
Spacemen 3's first ever recording session from 1984 sounds like a primitive version of what the group were to become; the dominating sound of the record is a slow, droning psychedelic blues performed with sparse instrumentation. A drum set is matched with a pair of distorted electric guitars, all of which provide a swirling foundation for Jason Pierce's vocals. Following the UK 2017 RSD limited vinyl reissue, the set is back in print on CD.

>Jo Stafford
– It Had To Be You: Lost Radio Recordings CD (Real Gone Music)
24 radio performances taken from the Carnation Contented Hour, which Jo co-hosted on the Columbia Broadcasting System.

>Sun Ra and His Astro Infinity Arkestra
– My Brother The Wind Vol. 1 (Expanded Edition) CD (Cosmic Myth)
Released by Sun Ra in 1970 (but recorded in 1969),
My Brother The Wind is one of several albums that showcase Sun Ra's initial reckonings with the then-recently introduced Moog synthesizer. The original My Brother the Wind LP on Saturn (catalog 521) featured four tracks, properly sequenced here on as tracks 1–4. For this expanded release, tracks 5–7 feature three complete session takes and more, with liner notes by Moog historian Brian Kehew. [Vinyl edition due September 8.]
>Trailer Trash Tracys
– Althaea CD/LP+MP3 (Domino)
Spanning 10-tracks,
Althaea sees Trailer Trash Tracys drift afield from traditional song structures and create a new aural lexicon of their own, one as influenced by Filipino carnival music and Latin rhythms as it is by Japanese tropical music from the ‘80s.
>Varials
– Pain Again CD (Fearless)
Varials approach heavy music from a different angle altogether on their full-length debut, Pain Again. This mindset expands the possibilities of 'heavy' throughout 12 brash, bruising, and brilliant anthems, with the band taking a collective step forward.

In the words of legendary DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall, Warm Digits create “machine funk kraut-a-delia.” Their brew of live drums, guitar and electronics betray a love of Neu!, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, My Bloody Valentine and Boards of Canada while motorik percussion, electronic basslines, Keith Levene-style guitar chops and squelchy analogue warmth coalesce.

>Awon & Linkrust
– Moon Beams LP (Vinyl Digital)
Moon Beams is a project by rapper Awon and producer Linkrust that takes the listener on a space-out Afro-futuristic journey through the streets as they exist today, yesterday, and possibly the future. The music by Linkrust is obscure, raw, and gritty yet beautiful at times composed as it is an alien operating on a different frequency.
>Big Hush
– Spirit/Wholes LP (Robotic Empire)
The music of Genevieve Ludwig, Owen Wuerker, Chris Taylor, and Emma Baker embraces collectivity and experimentation, imbued with the tension and intimacy of close friendship. Writing is communal, and everyone sings. Big Hush songs are sharpened by the unpredictable acoustics of DIY show spaces and recorded later in a basement studio. Edits are made in the backseat of a Volvo with the windows down. The songs are mostly three-minute concentrations of moody, solid indie-pop songwriting, with melodic dueling vocals and harmonies that poke out above the hiss of tape and distorted guitars.

>Bob & Gene
– If This World Were Mine [Reissue/2007] LP (Daptone)
Ten years ago, Daptone released an archival collection of the sweetest soul from upstate New York in the 1960s; Bob & Gene's
If This World Were Mine. The beautifully packaged LP sold out quickly and has remained out-of-print ever since. Its stature has grown over the years and is, these days, a desirable but hard-to-find record for fans of sweet soul. So, to respond to the demand of soul fans worldwide Daptone released this remastered pressing.

>Josh Freda
– Rewind This! [OST] LP+MP3 (Death Waltz)
Rewind This Is a must-see documentary about the home video boom of the 1980s and the tape collectors obsessing, preserving and cataloging the format today.

– Gang Nativity 10” (Hit & Run0)
Born from swampy house party revolutions in Portland and meeting somewhere at the intersection of concept art and hip-hop, rap duo Headlock are a well-loved slice of the Tucson music community. Triceratop plays the beats, Illslur puts down the raps, and together they've created "shredrap" a sound from dollar bin records, abandoned effects pedals, thrifted drum machines, heavy psych borrows and a VCR.

>Heinali & Matt Finney
– How We Lived LP (The Flenser)
Heinali & Matt Finney is a transcontinental avant-garde electronic music project consisting of Ukranian composer Oleg Shpudeiko (Heinali) and Alabama-based spoken word poet Matt Finney.

>John Lee Hooker
– The Country Blues Of John Lee Hooker [Reissue/1959] LP+MP3 (Cornbread)
By 1959 the folk revival was nearly in full swing, pushed forward by the likes of Pete Seeger, and it was in fact the first year of the Newport Folk Festival.

With the addition of drummer Johnathan Martin, the duo has made music that highlights their influences from earlier sonic pioneers, blending styles, and adding depth to their frenetic pursuit of a post-psychedelic sound. Brushing against the Los Angeles landscape, The Mad Walls offer a subdued but exploratory vision of sound and fury.

>F.J. McMahon
– Spirit Of The Golden Juice [Reissue/1969] LP (Kemado)

>Portugal. The Man
– Woodstock LP (Atlantic)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “It’s been a long time coming since 2013’s Evil Friends from Portugal. The Man, but a new album is on the way. Between 2006 and 2013, the Alaska-born psych-indie pop group released a whopping eight studio records, never leaving more than two years in between. As we approach four years since their last album, fans have begun to wonder what the wait is, — would a new album ever come? On a trip back home, frontman John Gourley was met by the same questioning by his father, who asked him ‘What’s taking so long to finish the album?’ according to a press release. ‘Isn’t that what bands do? Write songs and then put them out?’ It light a fire under PTM’s collective asses, leading them to throw out all previous material of what they were going to call
Gloomin’ And Doomin’, enlisting the help of Beastie Boys’ Mike D, Danger Mouse, and John Hill on the production side. With a bit of inspiration from finding an old Woodstock ’69 ticket of his Gourley’s father, PTM went back to the drawing room table to produce an album that can inspire some good in this ‘avalanche of flaming biohazard material sliding down a mountain of used needles into a canyon full of rat feces’ that sums up 2017 so far.” -- Indie88

Avocet Revisited is a four-track EP, commissioned by Earth recordings as a companion piece to Bert Jansch's 1979 avian-themed masterstroke Avocet. Again, drawing inspiration from the resplendence of birds native to British waters (Bert himself was a keen ornithologist), Earth invited this quartet of artists to each choose a species that particularly speaks to them, and base a track around it. The results have been universally graceful, evocative, and majestic - much like the creatures themselves.
>Washed Out
– Mister Mellow LP (Stones Throw)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Boredom. Laziness. Complete apathy. Is it a quarter-life crisis or just an excuse to never grow up? This is the world of Washed Out's (Ernest Greene) new album
Mister Mellow. A fully immersive multimedia experience, the album guides the listener through the highs and lows of this often-ridiculous struggle. In classic Millennial fashion, most young adults' perception of their own lives is overblown and over-dramatized to the point of absurdity - as are the many ways they distract themselves from the insecurities faced on a daily basis (see social media, fantasy, drugs, music). Mister Mellow shines a light on the humor found in this paradox - how we can be so bored and unhappy in what is often a very privileged, contented life? Further moving away from the synthesizer-driven sounds of his early work and the more band-driven sound of his work on iconic indie label Sub Pop, it is fitting that Greene has partnered with the rebellious beat-driven label Stones Throw as he continues to carve out a unique sonic identity that stands in direct opposition to most current trends. Limited yellow colored pressing also available.
>Wolf Eyes
– Strange Days II 12” (Lower Floor Music)
Wolf Eyes return to the audio world with two bangers of free abstraction and stretched out otherworldly electronics.
