>Childish Gambino
– Awaken, My Love! 2xLP (Glassnote)
Released last December on CD – now available on vinyl. In an interview with Billboard, 33-year-old rapper Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) explained that the overall feel of his latest album,
Awaken, My Love!, was sourced from childhood memories of listening to his father’s favorite music. “I remember listening to songs my dad would play – albums by the Isleys or Funkadelic – and not understanding the feeling I was feeling,” Gambino says. “I remember hearing a Funkadelic scream and being like, ‘Wow, that’s sexual and it’s scary.’ Not having a name for that, though; just having a feeling. That’s what made it great.” Gambino went on to say he approached Awaken as “an exercise in just feeling and tone.” He also summarized how some people felt in the 1970s and compares it to what’s going on around the world today. “It felt like people were trying to get out of their minds, with all the things that were happening – and that are happening right now,” Gambino said. “How do you start a global revolution, really? Is that possible with the systems we’ve set up? There’s something about that ’70s black music that felt like they were trying to start a revolution.”
>Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers
- Native Heart LP (Emmajava Recordings)
Released last June on CD – now available on vinyl. Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers are musical beacons of the Southwest fueled by witty and insightful lyrics, crunching guitar riffs, and a dynamic rhythm section.

>Copeland
– Beneath Medicine Tree [Reissue/2003] 2xLP (srcvinyl)
180gm vinyl reissue of the emo rock band’s debut album. Virtuosic vocals from frontman Aaron Marsh, at times pay homage to tenor legend Jeff Buckley with belting confidence, or gleam with elegance and passion in the vein of Coldplay's Chris Martin. The songwriting is splendid, blending pop sensible melodies, lush harmonies, and
moody lyrics with ambient guitar leads and clever arrangements encasing everything that is beautiful.

>Bob Dylan
– Hard Rain [Reissue/1976] LP+MP3 (Sony Legacy)

>Billie Eilish
– Don’t Smile At Me 12” (Darkroom/Interscope)
Debut EP from the girl W Magazine calls "pop's terrifying 15-year-old prodigy". [Limited edition opaque red vinyl pressing available.]

>Charlie Feathers
– Best of The Sun Records Sessions LP (ORG Music)
This newly compiled collection of recordings from rockabilly pioneer Charlie Feathers showcases the influential Memphis performer’s work at Sun Records (and related labels). Feathers started his musical career as a session musician at Sun Studios under Sam Phillips. His theatrical, hiccupping vocal style inspired a later generation of rock vocalists, including Lux Interior of The Cramps and Tav Falco, who contributed extensive liner notes and photos for the insert of this release.

>Neil Finn
– Out Of Silence LP (Lester Records Ltd./Kobalt)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “The multi-talented Crowded House frontman can make the most sophisticated pop music sound like the easiest thing in the world. Perhaps the first thing the listener needs to do with
Out Of Silence is forget about the circumstances in which it was created. For four consecutive Fridays in August, Neil Finn has live-streamed the making of his fourth solo album via his Facebook page, releasing the singles ‘More Than One Of You’ and ‘Second Nature’ on the 11th and 18th respectively. The recording was completed in a final four-hour session on the 25th. Clearly, this approach excited Finn and his fans. But when the process is forgotten, all that is left behind is the music itself: piano-based orchestral pop, with a minimum of drums and percussion. The album is compact at 35 minutes, and complex in its instrumentation and arrangements, scored by composer Victoria Kelly. It is beautiful on the surface and yet seemingly bottomless: these songs are too subtle and densely textured to take in all at once. Piece by piece, Neil Finn's Out Of Silence comes together in simplistic beauty.”
>Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn
– Echo In The Valley LP (Rounder)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America's rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn's second album is simultaneously familiar and wildly innovative. The results are fascinating, especially considering their strict rules for recording: all sounds must be created by the two of them, the only instruments used are banjos (they have seven between them, ranging from a ukulele to an upright bass banjo), and they must be able to perform every recorded song live. With the exception of a few restyled traditional tunes, all tracks on
Echo In The Valley are originals, and are largely co-written – a different creative approach from their first album, where songs were mostly his or hers. New original tunes range from “Over The Divide,” a song inspired by Hans Breuer, who worked to ferry Syrian refugees to safety, to “Blooming Rose,” inspired by Native American voices and lamenting a continual distancing from nature, and “Don't Let It Bring You Down” is an emphatic mantra for hard times.
>Ben Folds
– Supersunnyspeedgraphic, The LP [2006] 2xLP (Analog Spark)
First-time vinyl edition of Ben Folds’ 1996 remix compilation album.

>Wesley Fuller
– Inner City Dream LP (PIAS America)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. The debut album from the Melbourne-based power pop boy wonder.
Inner City Dream features twelve tracks of swirling psych, jangly pop and punchy, crunchy glam that show off Fuller’s broadening sonic palette and his progression as a writer and producer. RIYL: Tame Impala, The Sunchymes, Temples, Surfer Blood.
>The Golliwogs
- Fight Fire: The Complete Recordings 1964-1967 LP (Fantasy/Craft)
This comprehensive collection offers fans a unique opportunity to hear the artistic progression and apprenticeship of John and Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook, and Doug Clifford in the three years leading up to the band's transformation into Creedence Clearwater Revival.

>Davy Graham
– Folk, Blues & Beyond… [Reissue/1965] 2xLP (Creature Music)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Released last week on CD – now available on vinyl. David Michael Gordon "Davey" Graham (originally spelled Davy Graham) (26 November 1940 - 15 December 2008) was born in Leicestershire, to a Guyanese mother and a Scottish father. He learnt to play the piano and harmonica as a child and then took up the classical guitar at the age of 12. As a teenager, he was strongly influenced by the folk guitar player Steve Benbow, who had travelled widely and played a guitar style influenced by Moroccan music. Graham was one of the most influential figures in the 1960s British Folk Revival.

>The Kinks
– Sleepwalker [Reissue/1977] LP (Friday Music)
180gm audiophile colored vinyl pressing in a gatefold sleeve with poster.

>Sondre Lerche
– Pleasure LP+MP3 (Analog Spark)
Released last week on CD – now available on vinyl. “For more than a decade, Norwegian-turned-New-Yorker Sondre Lerche explored confessional singer/songwriter reveries, Burt Bacharach-tinted chamber pop and the kitchen-sink gamut of country/blues/psych-folk, much of it with a jazzy undertone. With 2014’s
Please, Lerche channeled his inner David Byrne and fully connected with his long simmering love of ’80s synth pop and Brazilian samba on a set of songs that addressed the end of his marriage. Pleasure finds Lerche similarly searching for danceable solutions, once again setting his irresistibly twisted lyric pretzels (“I’ve got so much love to give/So many graves to dig” or “I’m always watching/Call it voyeurism or masochism, a coward’s distance”) to drum machinery, Saturday-night fever sweats and twitchy ‘80s Frankie/Duran2/Soft Cell moves. The beauty of Pleasure’s vintage danceteria lies in its sharp 21st-century focus and Lerche’s consistently reliable songwriting skills, which have proven adaptable to every genre in which he’s dabbled.” – Magnet

– Complete Recordings LP (Munster)

Like Swimming tour in 1997. Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in a gatefold tip-on jacket.
>Nickelback
- Feed The Machine LP (BMG)
Released last June on CD – now available on vinyl. “The band that’s the butt of the music world’s jokes, Nickelback, recently dropped a new single called ‘Feed The Machine’, and ever since then the song has been feeding listeners’ insecurities about their own music tastes. ‘Feed The Machine’ is packing some metal-influenced guitar riffs and Muse-y lyrics, and while the band are still clearly trying to sound more like their beloved Metallica, they’ve captured the attention of people who wouldn’t normally be too keen on Nickelback music, and it’s led to some strong reactions: “Twitter confession: I listened to the new Nickelback, and, um... it's good. Nickelback is good. I like the new Nickelback. I'm a monster;’ ‘New Nickelback is good, new James Blunt is good, I had a good run as a respectable music critic, I have no regrets;’ ‘Okay, I'll concede - the new Nickelback track is really good.’”

With their new release,
Dollhouse, the band is eager to follow up last year’s critically-acclaimed Positive Thinking with urgent thoughts on the current climate of the world

>David Virelles with Román Díaz and The Nosotros Ensemble
– Gnosis LP (ECM)
Released last week on CD – now available on vinyl. In this vivid and exciting project, the Santiago-raised and New York-based pianist-composer David Virelles looks towards one melting pot from the vantage point of another. A far-reaching work with deep cultural roots,
Gnosis speaks of transculturation and traditions, and of the complex tapestry of Cuba’s music the sacred, the secular, and the ritualistic but the works shapes and forms could only have been created by a gifted contemporary player thoroughly versed in the art of the improvisers. Strings, woodwinds and percussion all have their roles to play in Gnosis, viewed by Virelles as several families functioning within one unit: this dynamic symbolizes multicultural interaction.

– What If LP (Rounder/Concord)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. 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.” [Limited colored vinyl pressing also available.]

>Joywave
– Content LP (Hollywood)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “
Content is a world of shifting dynamics. Daniel Armbruster’s (Joywave’s lead singer and lyricist) fragile words give way to howling, bewildering blasts of rock and electronic programming. Powerful, immersive, lush, emotionally distant. The production by Armbruster, bassist Sean Donnelly and Rich Costey, who has worked with layered, dense-sounding bands such as Arctic Monkeys and Muse, is careful to keep the vocals out front. Other sonic details are a treat, but hardly cute: There are what critics call ‘Beatlesque’ moments. The dreamlike segue of applause folding into a murky machine rhythm of ‘Thanks, Thanks For Coming.’ Armbruster tipping toward Paul McCartney-like Tin-Pan Alley vocals. The final track, ‘Let’s Talk About Feelings,’ is the most subversively daring of all 11 songs. ‘I am drowning in love with you,’ Armbruster sings over Bailey’s lounge piano, the shimmer of Brenner’s cymbals and cocktail-crowd chatter. Armbruster dares to carry the song like a cracked Perry Como. It’s a theatrical, murky sadness.” – Democrat & Chronicle

>Maximum Effort
– Money Lies & Media Reels LP (Big Muddy)
Madness and truth are said to be inseparable, and with their album
Money, Lies, & Media Reels, St Louis's Maximum Effort is a testament to that statement. Resting somewhere between science-fiction and stone-cold gospel, Maximum Effort is a self-described punk rock "awareness group" that uses a tightly honed guitar driven sound to deliver a spastic message about government cover-ups, alien conspiracies, and technologies that control our every move.

>ZZ Ward
– The Storm LP (Hollywood)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. ZZ Ward didn’t have to look far for inspiration on her second full-length album,
The Storm. Equally evocative of blues grit and hip-hop bounce, the Los Angeles-based vocal powerhouse and multi-instrumentalist leapt forward by taking a deeper look at some of her earliest inspirations including Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, and Vera Ward Hall and Big Mama Thornton. “For me, this album wasn’t really about experimenting,” she admits. “It was more about simplicity, honing-in on what I love about music and what makes me who I am as an artist. Growing up, I listened to a lot of hip-hop and blues, and I love those two genres so much. Sometimes, to evolve you don’t need to go outside of yourself; you can reach further inside of yourself instead.” It’s a realization earned over a whirlwind five years. The Fedora-rocking, guitar-shredding, harmonica-wielding blues siren peppered an old backporch musical recipe with hip-hop urgency and hashtaggable wisdom on her 2012 mixtape Eleven Roses, and has since practically set stages ablaze on tours with Eric Clapton, Gary Clark, Jr., and Fitz & The Tantrums at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly, and Made In America.
>Whitechapel
- Somatic Defilement [2007] LP (Metal Blade)
First time vinyl pressing.

Originally released in 2007, it's a concept album about Jack the Ripper's infamous murders of prostitutes in East London's Whitechapel district (also where the band derived its name) where death metal and technical metalcore collide. Limited colored copies available.

>Bro. Valentino
– Stay Up Zimbabwe [Reissue/1978] 12” (Analog Africa)
Bro. Valentino, Anthony Emrold Phillip, began his illustrious career in 1961 at The Big Bamboo, a minor calypso tent in Port of Spain, Trinidad, before breaking into the professional scene in 1966 at the Lord Kitchener's Caravan calypso tent. After the Black Power revolution of 1970, he transformed into a calypsonian with a conscience and a consciousness who sang on behalf of the poor and downtrodden and was dubbed "The People's Calypsonian". At the end of the heady decade of the tumultuous 1970s, with the echoes of the Black Power revolution of Trinidad still strongly reverberating, Valentino penned his two most commercially successful calypso songs, 1979's "Stay Up Zimbabwe" and 1980's "Ah Wo (Brand New Revolution)" both reflections of the revolutionary spirit which had engulfed the Caribbean in the 1970s. Silk-screen printed cover; 140 gram turquoise vinyl.

Cage The Elephant's new live album,
Unpeeled, was recorded over a series of intimate shows in cities including Los Angeles, Washington DC, Knoxville, and Nashville where the band performed in a stripped down arrangement with a string quartet and additional percussion. Unpeeled features 21-tracks: 18 curated songs from their past four albums plus three re-imagined versions of existing songs. Said frontman Matt Shultz about the inspiration behind the double live release: “Many times you're adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you don't realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song.” Limited edition Deluxe colored vinyl pressing also available.
>College

Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. College returns with its third full length album, a rich, glowing and nostalgic synth-based offering reminiscent of 2010’s “A Real Hero” (which was featured on the

>Corrupted/Noothgrush
– Noothgrush/Corrupted [Reissue/1997] LP (20 Buck Spin)
It’s hard to believe that twenty years have passed since two of the bleakest purveyors of doomed psychosis, namely Noothgrush and Corrupted, unleashed thirty-five minutes of suffering. Perhaps thought buried by grime and rust, this much sought-after split LP has now been excavated in 2017 and given a fresh layer of tar via remastered audio and new artwork.

– Dion LP (Agitated)
Debut solo album from Dion Lunadon (of A Place To Bury Strangers / The D4). From cutting his teeth back home in New Zealand as a member of The D4 to his current role as bassist of Brooklyn-based A Place to Bury Strangers, Dion Lunadon has played in some form of a rock 'n' roll band his entire life. During a short break in touring with APTBS, Lunadon had a rush of inspiration in the form of a Dion Lunadon creative spasm-a neurotic impulse to make a batch of songs and do it right then and right there. What resulted is quite a jump away from his work in APTBS and draws more influence from bands like Toy Love and The Gun Club, as well as New Zealand unknowns such as Gestalt and Supercar.

>Candy Dulfer
– Together 2xLP (Music On Vinyl)
Limited turquoise colored vinyl pressing. New album from the Dutch saxophonist.

Firewalker’s first release for Pop Wig features six new songs along with the band’s 2016 demo tape available on vinyl for the first time. CLRVYNT describes the first track “Loaded Dice” as “employing the almost death metal-esque shredded throat of Sophie Hendry with a finished product that’s as if Paul Bearer fronted early Agnostic Front or early Breakdown.”

>Free Salamander Exhibit
– Undestroyed 2xLP (Web Of Mimicry)
Undestroyed is the long-awaited debut from the genre-damning Free Salamander Exhibit of Norcal, comprised of four-fifths of the legendary Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, with the appropriate confusion of tottering riffage, clarity of intent, and apocalyptic joy.
>Serge Gainsbourg
– Indifférente LP (Jambalaya)
Collecting some of Serge Gainsbourg's finest early recordings from 1958 and 1959,
Indifférente finds the provocative chanteur in his rawest form. Pulled from his first two 10" releases and including live cuts and duets with Juliette Gréco, this is the essential document of Serge's beginnings, not long after his songwriting and singing prowess had been discovered by the famous chanteuse Michèle Arnaud who recorded some of his earliest tunes.
>Get The Shot
– Infinite Punishment LP (New Damage)
This Quebec City band plays an unpretentious spirited hardcore tinged with the desperation of a cold and disaffected youth.

>Hauschka
– Substantial [Reissue/2004] LP (Karaoke Kalk)
Substantial is based upon the least conceptual of all concepts: Improvisation. Each track is based upon an opening sequence, the theme of which is extended, modulated and varied with, as far as form or length is concerned, no specific objective in mind. What has come out is music of a differing, well, substance: Eleven atmospheric pieces in which a variety of different techniques overlap and rhythmical images with narrative depth unfold; in which further instruments, such as double bass or vibraphone make a fleeting appearance, at once lending a hint of pop, but at no time detracting from the piano as central instrument; in which experimental and electronic music is accessed without compromising the directness and ease of the improvisational approach.
>Housewives
- Ff061116 LP (Rocket Recordings)
London-based outfit Housewives’ psychic charge—equal parts brittle rhythmic drive, angular contortions, and monochrome minimalism—is as punishing in approach as the band are enigmatic in aspect.

>Rafael Anton Irisarri
- The Shameless Years LP+MP3 (Umor Rex)
Post-minimalist American composer Rafael Anton Irisarri makes his Umor Rex debut with bold new album. Inspired by a troubled socio-political climate, buried melodies punch their way through a bleak cover of noisy drones, periodically veering into some of Irisarri’s most eerily pertinent music to date.

>Jane’s Addiction

A collection of unreleased songs and instrumentals from the past few years.

>Livid
– Beneath This Shroud, The Earth Erodes LP (Prosthetic)
Released last year on CD – now available on vinyl. Minneapolis dwellers Cole Benson, Chad Padelford and Tim Leick first got together in 2013 playing instrumental post rock. It wasn't long after that the trio's influences of Eyehategod, the Melvins, Boris, Tool, Evoken and Mournful Congratulation began to manifest naturally through their music creating a more sonically cathartic endeavor. By the Fall of 2016, Livid began work on their debut album,
Beneath This Shroud, The Earth Erodes. The political climate of that time, combined with various struggles each member had, helped create an extremely dark, extremely moody, heavy and angry sounding album.
>Taj Mahal
– Ultrasonic Studios Long Island October 15th 1974 LP (Live On Vinyl)
One of the most revered figures in late 20th century American blues and roots music, by 1974 Taj Mahal had devised a unique style drawing on a huge variety of sources. This superb set typifies his eclectic approach and mastery of the guitar.

>Make Them Suffer
– Worlds Apart LP+MP3 (Rise)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Ten brand new intense, guttural tracks from the deathcore band. Red colored pressing also available.

>Marduk
- F**k Me Jesus [Reissue/1991] 12” (Osmose)
Marduk - Those Of The Unlight [Reissue/1993] LP (Osmose)
Marduk - Opus Nocturne [Reissue/1994] LP (Osmose)
Legendary Swedish band Marduk was formed in 1990 with the intent of creating the most brutal and blasphemous metal act ever. And with the release of their groundbreaking 1991 demo
F**k Me Jesus they proved to be as serious as a heart attack, laying the foundation of Swedish black metal in its wake. They proceeded to up the ante with follow-up full-length outings Dark Endless (1992) and Those Of The Unlight (1993), the latter as primal and ruthless a slab as they come true to Marduk's sinister legacy and true to the essence of black metal.
>The Memories
– Royal United Song Service LP (Burger)
Recently released on cassette – now available on vinyl.
Royal United Song Service was created by The Memories (featuring members of White Fang, Colleen Green, Free Weed, Unkle Funkle, Totally You, Jerry Rogers and more) to raise funds for their first European tour. Through this service The Memories created custom, made-to-order tunes about any topic or theme and with any lyrics, chords or time-signatures for the low, low price of $100. Everyone has a song inside them and this double album speaks to that -- the Memories making songs about other people's memories.
>Mitú
– Cosmus 2xLP (ZZK)
Mitú is the electronic music duo of Julian Salazar, ex-guitarist of Bogota's live-electronic band Bomba Estereo, and Franklin Tejedor, a master percussionist of Colombia's great rhythmic traditions. Together they make music that draws from a wide spectrum of electronic influences, anchored to the percussive, tribal beats of their native Colombia.

>M.O.D.
– U.S.A. For M.O.D. [Reissue/1987] LP (Megaforce)
Crossover New York City thrash/punk group M.O.D. (Method Of Destruction) fronted by Stormtroopers Of Death vocalist Billy Milano have maintained a steady output for over three-decades. Their debut album is back in print for its 30
th Anniversary.
>Mr. T Experience
– King Dork Approximately The Album LP (Sounds Rad)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl.
King Dork Approximately The Album is a twelve-song concept album based on singer Frank Portman's bestselling series of young adult novels. Originally released as a unique digital “balbum,” (book/album) this album is finally given proper treatment on physical format. The album is crammed with carefully crafted songs about girls, love, angst and awkwardness-themes that have resonated with fans new and old for 30 years - a soundtrack to the inside joke that is your life.
>The Mynabirds
– Be Here Now LP+MP3 (Saddle Creek)
A collection of nine songs written and recorded in just two weeks in January 2017 following the Inauguration and the Women’s March. Singer Laura Burhenn worked with producer Patrick Damphier in his Nashville studio (which he was being evicted from to make way for luxury condos) to document the news and peoples’ intense emotional responses to it all in real time. The album vacillates in style and feel to reflect a frayed nation, featuring a Burundian refugee choir on one song, and a cacophony of dissonant saxophones in a new national anthem on another.

>Nights & Weekends
– Music For Marriage LP (Ring The Alarm)
L.A.-based band Nights & Weekends is comprised of celebrated author Jenny Hollowell and her husband, producer Daron Hollowell (Best Coast, FIDLAR).
Music For Marriage, their first album, explores the regret, guilt, longing for understanding and exploration into shared and independent histories that sprung from a time of transition, change and crisis eight years into the Hollowells' marriage.
>Nodra
– Nodra LP (Sige)
Pinprick guitar lines, swaths of ethereal brass, sub-bass thuds, the clatter of distorted percussion, fever dream lullaby melodies - it can be difficult to discern what sounds we're hearing over the course of Nordra's eponymous debut given the strange and unorthodox context of their combination. And while many tech savvy artists have managed to build strange symphonies and texturally curious electronic exercises within the lonely confines of user-friendly software, those in-the-box tactics don't line up with the mission statement of Monika Khot, the mastermind behind Nordra. Blood-red vinyl and housed in a custom letter-pressed jacket.

>Nurse With Wound
– Dark Fat 3xLP (Dirter Promotions)
Released last year on CD – now available on vinyl.
Dark Fat is a celebration and documentation of ten years of NWW shows, but to call Dark Fat a live album is far too simplistic. It is an entirely new recording constructed by combining the most interesting moments of the past decade into unique tracks.
>The Odyssey Cult
– Vol. 1 LP (Silver Current)
The Odyssey Cult – Vol. 2 LP (Silver Current)
The Odyssey Cult is a highly personal, sprawling two-volume, solo electric guitar project from Ethan Miller (Feral Ohms, Howlin’ Rain). Four years in the making and his first solo instrumental guitar-oriented release, self-described as “amp melt and high volume ambient,” it is as indebted to the great minimalists and loop pioneers as to guitar-oriented Krautrock, cult film soundtrack music and the great feedback-riding, amp destroyers of the ’60s to present.

>Overkill
– The Grinding Wheel 2xLP (Nuclear Blast)
Limited yellow and black splatter colored vinyl pressing of the 18th album from the thrash metal kings.

>Pinact
– The Part That No One Knows LP+MP3 (Kanine)
The trio offers hooks by the dozen, artillery-style drumming and perfectly synchronised guitar interplay.

>The Pod
– The Pod LP (Accident Prone)
The Pod is the solo project of Make frontman Scott Endres. Citing influences from the likes of Gary Numan, Lungfish, Vangelis, Killing Joke, Godflesh, Aphex Twin, and even Casio keyboards, the self-titled debut from The Pod is worlds away from the harsh and bombastic doom metal of Make, yet the album still possesses an atmospheric and mesmerizing quality. Encompassing elements of black metal, synthesizers, and sampled beats, the album is dark and twisted journey of highs and lows, dark and light—a thrilling, yet challenging, ride with truly engrossing results.

>Potbelly
– Test Of Time LP (Sudden Death)
For their new album,
Test Of Time, Potbelly’s normal beer swillin’ and sexual debauchery is left in the past; instead, they leap forward with songs speaking out against police brutality, gang violence, racism, rape, and Trump’s new version of Amerikkka. Thrash-punk crossover madness.
>Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
- Fallen Leaves Camouflaged Behind Tropical Flowers [2011] 12” (Hospital Productions)
Marking six years of Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement’s cultish, elemental output, Dominick Fernow gives the project's debut release a vinyl pressing for the first time, coiling up two extended tracts of impure, unnatural gloom ranking amongst his most cherished works.

>David Rawlings
– Poor David’s Almanack LP+MP3 (Acony)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. 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.
>Emily Saliers
– Murmuration Nation LP (MRI Associated)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. “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.

>Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow
– Black Mirror: Men Against Fire [OST] LP (Invada)
Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow return to score a new episode
Men Against Fire from the highly acclaimed third series of Charlie Brooker's sensational Black Mirror. Further exploring their distinct style as seen in their Ivor Novello winning score for Ex Machina, and in the 2017 motion picture Freefire, Salisbury and Barrow's work on this release again delivers a completely unique sound which marries synthesizers with string orchestras, creating a soundtrack which both beautifully and eerily accompanies the episode. Limited army green colored vinyl LP pressing.
>Pharoah Sanders
– Izipho Zam (My Gifts) [Reissue/1973] LP (Everland)
Hailed by peers as the best tenor saxophonist in the world, Pharoah Sanders is a legend in jazz music.
Izipho Zam is his third album, initially recorded in January 1969, and was originally released on the Strata-East label in 1973. Passionate, intense and free, Sanders saxophone especially, is exquisite, pouring out its soul telling a story of its own.
>Ty Segall
– Fried Shallots 12” (Drag City)
Fried Shallots is a handful of numbers from different times and places over the past few years that all work together in a weird way. Profits from this release will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union.
>Sólstafir
– Masterpiece Of Bitterness [Reissue/2005] 2xLP (Spinefarm)
Sólstafir – Köld [Reissue/2005] 2xLP (Spinefarm)

– Charlie & The Chocolate Factory [OST/2005] 2xLP (Silva Screen)
Double mint marbled vinyl (first-time pressing) in a gatefold jacket.

>Juanita Stein
- America LP (Nude/Hammerheart)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Debut solo album from the Howling Bells lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist. “This is a different, yet equally valid take on pure Americana, a pure Americana old Philco tube radio with Patsy Cline’s voice, like some sort of Bible miracle, singing from the speaker. This is dreamy, soulful, and lovely country.” – Soundlab

>Supercat
– Don Dada [Reissue/1992] LP (Sony Legacy)
150gm vinyl reissue of the 1992 album from the reggae/dancehall great. Super Cat (aka William Anthony Maragh in Kingston, Jamaica) is a deejay who achieved widespread popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s dancehall movement.

>Andy Summers
– Triboluminescence LP (Cargo)
Triboluminescence is an album representing the style that Summers has evocatively dubbed “new exotic” — 14th solo album from this legendary guitarist builds on the sonic and artistic framework of his lauded 2015 set, Metal Dog.
>Temple Of Void
– Lords Of Death LP (Shadow Kingdom)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Detroit band Temple Of Void harkens back to the somber sound of early European doom, while channeling the energy and devastation of old-school American death metal.

>Trans Am
– Trans Am [Reissue/1995] LP+MP3 (Thrill Jockey)
Trans Am – Surrender To The Night [Reissue/1997] LP+MP3 (Thrill Jockey)
Trans Am – Sex Change [Reissue/2007] LP+MP3 (Thrill Jockey)
In celebration of Thrill Jockey's 25
th Anniversary, classic titles from Trans Am are available on colored vinyl for the first time.
>Aaron Turner & Daniel Menche
– Nox LP (Sige)
Aaron Turner (SUMAC, Isis) is a prolific artist whose output veers from violent guitar architectures to textural meditations. Daniel Menche is an equally prolific musician whose work in the fields of noise and experimentalism displays both savage tactile expressionism and masterful studio manipulations. Consequently, their collaborative album
Nox could have been a brutish exercise in punishing frequencies and aural assaults. Instead, Nox is what Turner describes as “a combo of Danielʼs more free-flowing form of impulsive music making and my more contemplative composition.”
>Various Artists
- Brownswood Bubblers 12 Pt. 2 LP (Brownswood)
The roll-call of artists who've appeared on the Brownswood Bubblers series is impressive. Boasting alumni like Flying Lotus, Dam-Funk and Floating Points, the compilations have long championed the rising stars of underground music. this part draws on two talents, in Broadstrokes and Skinny Pelembe, who've been nurtured through curator/compiler Gilles Peterson's Future Bubblers program - an Arts Council-funded scheme which is about helping new artists into the industry.

>Various Artists
- Panama! 2: Latin Sounds, Cumbia Tropical & Calypso Funk On The Isthmus 1967-77 [Reissue/2009] LP (Soundway)
Various Artists - Panama! 3: Calypso Panameno, Guajira Jazz and Cumbia Tipica on Theisthmus 1960-1975 [Reissue/2009] 2xLP (Soundway)
More of the golden age of Panamanian music and the music of the combos nacionales on rare recordings that have never been released outside the isthmus until 2009.

>Various Artists
- Seção Rítmica: Instrumental Funk '70s Brazil LP+7” (Atemoya)
Brazil has always had its own brand of musical virtuosity, one that combined a distinctive and innate rhythmic swing with an effortless ability to turn seemingly abstract riffs into ridiculously catchy hooks. In the late '60s and '70s when these talented players in Rio and Sao Paolo turned their focus towards the North American funk scene and bands like Kool & The Gang, the Meters and the JBs, a new element was added to the mix. Culled from the times no vocalist was claiming the spotlight, these instrumentals focus firmly on the rhythm section and its funky accompaniment, a journey through the '70s heyday of instrumental funk from Brazil from its rawest roots to refined boogie gems.

>The Veils
– The Runaway Found LP (Music On Vinyl)
The Runaway Found is an excellent debut album from this popular New Zealand band. The sound of The Veils is overall lush, romantic and literate. Lead singer Finn Andrews, who was just 17 and 18 when he composed the songs of this album, is confident and sensitive, much like Richard Ashcroft and the late Jeff Buckley. Andrews' lyrics and The Veils' mature presentation complement one another.
>Venomous Maximus
– No Warning LP (Shadow Kingdom)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. Heaving heaviness, haunting melodicism, sweaty grit, red-blooded swagger, rock-god vocals.

>Warrant
– Louder Harder Faster LP (Vinyl Eck)
Recently released on CD – now available on vinyl. 2017 release from the melodic hard rockers. Limited red colored vinyl pressing also available.

>Whiskey Meyers
– Firewater [Reissue/2011] LP (Wiggy Thump)
Whiskey Myers debut album,
Road Of Life (2008), established the guys as a worthy heir to Skynyrd’s blue-collar tradition. The sinewy sound and intense musical interplay worked well in concert, and dates began piling up in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Since September 2009, they have been touring throughout Texas and Oklahoma as well as the Midwest and the Southeast. The band's sophomore release, Firewater, ups the ante and solidifies Whiskey Myers as the genre-bending diamond in the rough, whose music has captured the attention of fans and critics alike. Produced by Leroy Powell, former guitarist for Shooter Jennings, and recorded at the famed Panhandle House in Denton, TX.
>Stevie Wonder
– Original Musiquarium I [Reissue/1982] 2xLP (Motown)
