>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.”

>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
th album from the R&B singer/songwriter includes guest appearances by Kanye West, Quavo, DJ Khaled, Missy Elliot, Prince Charlez, and Kaytranada.

Limited edition red colored vinyl pressing also available.

>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. We’re All Alright! is available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe adds three bonus tracks, among them a kaleidoscopic cover of The Move's “Blackberry Way.”

>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)

>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. The journey ends with a trip into psych-prog rock, with a sound not dissimilar to that coming out of the early '70s British rock scene.

>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.
>k.d. lang

The album features collaborations with Migos, YG, Kamaiyah, Diplo, Grace, Evander Griim and Stefflon Don, with production by WondaGurl, Earl The Pearl, Burberry Perry, Digital Nas, K Swisha, Southside, 30 Roc and others.

>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. Combining trance rhythms alongside more typical Porcupine Tree textures and guitar solos, Voyage 34 was a big hit in the ambient/chill out club scene of the early ‘90s (when it was originally issued as two separate 12” singles).

Rainer Maria have returned in full force with a brand new self-titled full-length written and recorded by all three founding members.

>Portugal. The ManWoodstock 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

>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.

– 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

>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. Josh Freda's incredible synth score perfectly captures all aspects of '80s videotape culture; an album full of music recalling cheesy action synth riffs, moody horror stings and neon drenched nighttime radios.

>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

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)
