Inspired by old western film scores and vintage Latin American sounds, Hermanos Gutiérrez's new Dan Auerbach-produced album El Bueno Y El Malo takes listeners on a hypnotic and sensual instrumental journey through a haunted landscape where the haze of the desert meets the blue of a Kodachrome ocean. *Indie Exclusive Blue & White Opaque Marble LP*
One of the most important works of electronic music and modern classical, Mike Oldfield'sTubular Bells is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Includes additional selections from Oldfield's ouvre that have never before been performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with the London Contemporary Voices Choir.
With their 10th album, the nu-grass pioneers offer an evocative look at life’s uncertainties. Alpenglow is an affecting album, one that creates a supple sound from its blend of fiddles, banjos, mandolins and musings. Indeed, it’s hard to imagine a more emotive offering overall. *Indie Exclusive Coke Bottle Clear LP + 7”*
A party platter of stanky jams, silken R&B, jazz, and pop-funk, We Never Stop features several guest appearances, including Chic guitarist, producer, songwriter, and three-time GRAMMY Award-winner Nile Rodgers. Give the people an invigorating beat, some swanky sax uplift, and watch the pain melt away.
Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple) speaks his mind as loudly as possible on his eleventh full-length offering Belly Of The Beast. Joining forces with producer Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Pain, Lindemann), the New Jersey-born powerhouse conjures up the kind of heavy metal that not only makes you throw your fist in the air, but also makes you think.
Onward’s resurrection by founding member and international guitar legend Toby Knapp. Of Epoch and Inferno features new vocalist Robert Van War, best known for his tenure with US Power / Heavy Metal act Attika. A supreme return in top form from one of America’s most popular and celebrated progressive Heavy Metal bands.
Dead Cross is a snarling beast from some of music’s most experimental and hardcore musicians: Dave Lombardo (drums), Michael Crain (guitar), Justin Pearson (bass) and Mike Patton on vocals, but at its core it’s a group of friends having fun, paying homage to the music they love and asking music fans to come along. *Indie Exclusive Glass Coffin LP*
The pioneers of blood-soaked “Gore” Metal return with the macabre culmination of decades upon decades of nightmarish riffs, obliterating blast beats, and hellish screams from the very depths the band crawled out from. The most fun you’ve ever had being disgusted! *Indie Exclusive Blood Red LP*
Midnights is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams. The floors we pace and the demons we face - the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout Taylor’s life. It’s a thread tying where Swift has been and where she’s going—referencing her old material while making leaps and bounds forward.
This is a love letter of New Orleans. Not strictly classical, jazz or ambient electronica but rather a body of “movements,” Pigments is an expressive soundscape that is an immersive passage through the city as seen through the eyes of a young Black girl with dreams to paint her future with the pigments given to her. *Indie Exclusive Opaque Baby Blue LP*
Reasons In Decline is not a last grasp at relevance from a band past their peak. It is a vital addition to an impressive catalogue from a group who deserve your attention. It’s one of those rare reunion albums that satisfies a need, even if it doesn’t land as hard as some may have hoped. *Indie Exclusive Red & Purple Swirl LP*
A Family Christmas is beautiful, intimate, and warm. The Bocelli family sings to you from the sanctuary of their own sitting room, by their fire, relaxing as they momentarily switch off from the rest of the world. It is the sound of a family taking a precious moment to be with each other and celebrate what is truly important.
The songs here are still short and bittersweet, but there's more weight to them on the whole, as Kline negotiates self-examination, affection, regret, and apprehension. Their unique sound of breezy guitar-rock paired with simply beautiful, intimate lyrics make this album truly feel as though it was shaped by a delicate hand. *Limited Edition Clear LP*
Four years after Simple Minds returned to form on Walk Between Worlds, they emerged more confident on their adrenaline-fueled 19th album. Here, with conviction and confidence, they wield pulsing synths, arena rock drums, silvery-sounding guitars, and Jim Kerr's dry, emphatic vocals for a cache of fine songs. *Indie Exclusive Transparent Orange LP*
Drawing comparisons to Chris Stapleton and Sturgill Simpson for his signature, cavernous vocal and gritty, go-your-own-way charisma, Williams returns with is long-awaited sophomore album. Waging Peace is rooted in country tradition and a bold, against-the-grain swagger, accompanied by Williams' organic twang and retrofuzz.
Like Motörhead before them (albeit dealing in languid grooves rather than pedal-to-the-metal noise), the song appears to remain the same over the course of a long and brilliant catalogue, but like Motörhead, Clutch's genius lies in their inherent them-ness. And though change is small, slight, and un-radical, theirs is a creative spring that remains deep and plentiful.
Spirits further proves Nothing More’s expertise in the rock genre and beyond, documenting the past two years’ desperation and isolation of lockdown, the spiral of substance abuse, the pain of broken relationships and survival in self-reliance while summarizing the band’s mission: reflect, provoke, inspire. *Indie Exclusive Red w/ White Swirl 2LP*
Like its sibling Unlimited Love, Dream Canteen benefits from the positive energy of these four friends just having fun in the studio, and is designed for listeners to plug in and bliss out. It’s a surprisingly introspective set filled with references to forgotten actors, classic bands, and, most tellingly, decades-old Chili Peppers songs. *Indie Exclusive Alternate Cover Gold LP*
