POP/ ROCK
American Football "s/t" [2nd album] 2xLP (Polyvinyl)
Limited 180-gram orange-colored vinyl LP pressing, includes digital download. Vinyl reissue of the band's second self-titled album, originally released in 2016.

Batiste, Jon "Anatomy Of Angels: Live At The Village Vanguard" CD (Verve) 
Recorded live at the historic Village Vanguard in NYC in the Fall of 2018 during Jon Batiste's residency, this album incorporates original material and covers. The music on this release is primarily instrumental music aside from "The Very Thought of You" featuring Lake Street Dive's Rachel Price on vocals.

Bones UK "s/t" [1/2 & 1/2 Black Clear Vinyl] LP (Sumerian) 
For London-bred band Bones UK, every song is a chance to speak their minds and to shed light on the disconnect between the status quo and the far more glorious world inside their heads. On their self-titled debut album, vocalist Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg confront everything from the beauty industrial complex to toxic masculinity to music-scene sexism, embedding each track with choruses primed for passionate shouting-along. Bones UK offer up an album that's both provocative and endlessly exhilarating, even in its most outraged moments.

Burch, Molly "Ballads" 7" (Captured Tracks) 
Following the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore album, 'First Flower', last October, Texan chanteuse Molly Burch returns with two heart-stopping tracks. Entitled 'Ballads' in homage to the strong and powerful female vocalists that she admires, this 7" EP embodies what Burch loves to do and what she does best: crafting music with emotion, drama and romance, giving her voice all the room it needs to burn bright.

Durant, Erin "Islands" LP (Keeled Scales) 
Vinyl now in stock. Erin Durant's stunning second album Islands, produced by TV On The Radio's Kyp Malone, is a full, carefully arranged epic that has drawn comparisons to Joanna Newsom, Joni Mitchell, and Julie Byrne. It's a sprawling, full album featuring varied instrumentation and overarching narratives with Erin's strong, clear voice cutting through.

Follakzoid "I" clear LP (Sacred Bones Records) 
Long-awaited fourth album from the Chilean kraturock band.

Grizfolk "Rarest Of Birds " LP (Nettwerk) 
Based in Los Angeles and Nashville with roots in Sweden, alternative-rockers Grizfolk's new album Rarest Of Birds is an ode to Southern California classic rock with a 2019 spin.
 
Harmaleighs, The "She Won't Make Sense" LP (Nettwerk) 
Nashville indie duo The Harmaleighs (Haley Grant and Kaylee Jasperson) present their new full-length album, She Won't Make Sense. Produced by Dan Molad (Lucius, JD McPherson, Tweedy), it's a stark contrast from their previous releases, having evolved from their acoustic beginnings to a fuller sound involving synths, strings and drums. She Won't Make Sense covers the full spectrum of sound, from heavier rock tunes to somber folk, to create the frenetic energy needed to convey the emotional weight of the album's subject matter.

Idles "Mercedes Marxist" 7" (Partisan) 
Two previously unreleased tracks from Idles' critically acclaimed album, Joy as an Act of Resistance.

Jagwar Twin "Subject To Flooding" [Coke Bottle Clear Vinyl] LP (Atlantic) 
Drawn magnetically to a shared human spirit, Jagwar Twin melds a worldly-ensemble of alternative sounds on the debut album Subject to Flooding. Roy English, the driving force behind Jagwar Twin, emerges as a spiritual monk warrior with a powerful voice and prophet-like poetry paired against a landscape of 60's style guitars, gritty hip-hop break beats, and flipped MPC samples reminiscent of Dark Fantasy-era Kanye West. Life's duality and the search for balance and self-discovery is what powers Jagwar Twin - just as one can be flooded with love, flooding can also bring destruction.

Kero Kero Bonito "Bonito Generation" CS (Polyvinyl) 
Kero Kero Bonito "TOTEP" CS (Polyvinyl) 
Now on cassette!

Lettuce "Elevate" CD (Lettuce Records) 
The sixth studio album from genre-defying funk-jazz-soul-hip-hop-psychedelic-jam-art-rock-experimental-avant-garde music titans Lettuce. Elevate marks the band's first new original music in three years and is a dynamic showcase of their ever-changing and all-inclusive musical palette.

Lung, Francis "A Dream is U" [Indie Exclusive Color Vinyl] LP (Memphis Industries) 
When Francis Lung describes his new album as sounding "like a short Mancunian boy single-handedly trying to incite Beatlemania" he's really not too far wide of the mark. Lung's much-anticipated debut album 'A Dream Is U' is both bold and enthusiastic, a kaleidoscopic journey informed by the greats but also one that is wonderfully enigmatic, the sound of a multi-instrumentalist tying together all manner of influences into one beautifully cohesive album.

Mabel "High Expectations" CD 
High Expectations is that rare record which feels both like a graduation and, also, just the beginning for Mabel. The twice-Brit-nominated singer and songwriter has already sold over three million singles in the UK (two platinum, three gold, and two silver), surpassed one billion streams, and sold out the likes of Brixton Academy. Across her formative singles and first long-form project, 'Ivy To Roses' which is approaching silver with 55,000 sales, Mabel has written with startling honesty.

LP version now available.

Penny and Sparrow "Finch" CD 
Beginning with 2013's Tenboom, the staunchly DIY pair Penny & Sparrow released a series of critically lauded records that garnered comparisons to the hushed intimacy of Iron & Wine and the adventurous beauty of James Blake, building up a devoted fanbase along the way through relentless touring and word-of-mouth buzz. Penny & Sparrow's magnificent sixth album finds the band reckoning with a prolonged period of intense personal transformation, a profound awakening that altered their perceptions of masculinity, sex, religion, divorce, friendship, vanity, purpose, and, perhaps most importantly, self.

Possible Humans "Everybody Split" red LP (Trouble In Mind) 
Debut album of REM & Feelies-inspired jangle rock, care of the Melbourne, Australia quintet.
 
Rosenstock, Jeff "I Look Like Shit" [180-gram Colored Vinyl] LP (Polyvinyl)

Russian Circles "Blood Year" [Indie Only Color Vinyl] LP/CD  (Sargent House) 
Seventh full length LP by Chicago post-metal trio. Produced by Kurt Ballou at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studio.

Segall, Ty "First Taste" LP/CD/CS (Drag City)  
Even as propulsive beats abound, Ty's new album is every bit as introspective as "Freedom's Goblin" was extroverted. He probes his past and family experiences-and gazes into the future, too -as an expansive palette of sounds (horns, brass, synths, two full drums sets at once, a dizzying array of acoustic instruments...) unfolds before your ears. It's a sprawling affair but a tightly revolving song cycle, too: "Taste," "Whatever," "Ice Plant," "The Fall," "I Worship the Dog," "The Arms," "Lone Cowboys" and more.

Sublime with Rome "Blessings" LP (Orchard) 
New album produced by Rob Cavallo.

Sweet Valley "SV" LP (Ghost Ramp)

Sequenced in chronological release order including every track and remix, embracing a host of pop culture threads from art, music and writing with all the ironic wit and wisdom of a master tunesmith.

Teskey Brothers, The "Run Home Slow" CD (Glassnote/AWAL) 
Run Home Slow is the sophomore album from The Teskey Brothers. The Australian band are two brothers (Josh and Sam Teskey) and their friends Liam Gough and Brendon Love. Onstage the band is as tight as any in the game, bringing horns and keys into the fray to deliver a show that soars and dives with masterful control. It's anyone's guess how far The Teskey Brothers are going to take their music but all indications so far suggest the love will go deep and wide around the world for this special combo.

PUNK / HARDCORE  
Agnostic Front "First Warning: The 'United Blood' Era Recordings, New York City, 1983" LP (Radiation Deluxe Series) 
Controversial East Coast punk band Agnostic Front were linchpins of the New York hardcore scene. Often misunderstood in their early days due largely to their majority skinhead following and the shock imagery of their record covers, the group carved out its reputation in the dilapidated Lower East Side of Manhattan. The recordings featured on this incendiary compilation date from the very start of their recording career, beginning with the demos that led to their debut seven-inch release, the self-issued United Blood EP (1983), bolstered by other recordings from the period that were left unissued at the time. Some of the material included here later appeared on the Raw And Unreleased CD (1995), but several songs are appearing on vinyl here for the very first time.

Cro-Mags "Don't Give In" 7" (Victory) 
Victory Records announced the signing of hardcore icons Cro-Mags, led by founder Harley Flanagan.

METAL
Batushka "Hospodi" LP (Metal Blade) 
Emerging from the shadows of eastern Poland back in 2015, Batushka have already established themselves as one of the modern era's most powerful and evocative bands. More than four years on from their debut, the second Batushka album is destined to be 2019's most transformative metal release. Named after an Old Church Slavonic word for God, Hospodi enhances all the unique qualities that made the band such an instant phenomenon, while offering an entirely distinct and fresh sensory experience, replete with the most ferocious and bewitching songs the Poles have penned to date and a newfound sense of rock swagger.

Tanith "In Another Time" LP (Metal Blade) 
Taking their name from a character in the classic Hammer Horror film 'The Devil Rides Out', NYC's Tanith play vintage hard rock that harks back to the glory days of Blue Oyster Cult, Thin Lizzy and Uriah Heep. However, while such influences resonate through their music, they are never derivative, having a strong musical identity and forging their own sound. There is also something inarguably organic and natural about everything that they do, no posing or trying to be anything that they are not, and the pleasure they take in the music they create is palpable.


JAZZ
Hill, Andrew "Black Fire" LP (Blue Note) 
Andrew Hill's Black Fire is both the pianist and composer's debut and an acknowledged masterpiece of modern post-bop jazz. Featuring a sublime quartet with Joe Henderson on tenor saxophone, Richard Davis on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums, the music still sounds as fresh today as it did the day it was recorded in November 1963, the start of an astounding creative streak that also produced Hill's great albums Smokestack, Judgment!, and Point of Departure during a period of just four months.

Jarrett, Keith "Live at Sendai Jazz Festival, Denryoku Hall, Japan, 20.10.1986" LP (Alternative Fox)

Limited to 1,000. 

Liston-Smith, Lonnie "Cosmic Funk" [Limited Gold Vinyl Edition] LP (Real Gone Music) 
1974's Cosmic Funk was his second album as a bandleader; nestled somewhere between the soul jazz, spiritual jazz, fusion, and post-bop sub-genres, this record headed, as the title indicates, in a funkier direction, with Lonnie Liston Smith's brother Donald contributing smooth vocal stylings to John Coltrane's 'Naima' among other tunes. Limited to 1,000.

New York Contemporary Five, The "Live at Koncertsal, Copenhagen, 17.10.1963" LP (Alternative Fox)

It was formed in 1962 with trumpeter Don Cherry, tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp, Danish alto saxophonist John Tchicai, acoustic bassist Don Moore, and drummer JC Moses. This rare performance, given at Copenhagen's Koncertsal on October 17, 1963, has epically-extended cuts of Don Cherry's "Consequences" and Ornette Coleman's "Emotions", plus a peppy take of Thelonious Monk's "Monk's Mood".

Produced, composed, and arranged by Gian Piero Reverberi (once part of the progressive cult heroes Le Orme and then the man behind the "classical gone disco" project Rondò Veneziano).

Reissue of the reggae singer's 1991 album.

Mad Professor "A Caribbean Taste Of Technology" LP (Ariwa Sounds) 
Made during the middle of Mad Professor's infamous Dub Me Crazy series, but not officially apart of the Dub Me Crazy segment. This album is the perfect soundtrack to the Hot Caribbean sunshine, laying on a hammock between two coconut trees with a cool rum punch, listening to sweet dub music.


SOUL / FUNK / R&B
9th Creation "Bubble Gum" LP (Past Due) 
9th Creation "Reaching For The Top" LP (Past Due) 
9th Creation "Step Ahead" LP (Past Due) 
Reissues of all three full-lengths by The 9th Creation, one of the best soul, funk, disco and boogie bands that sadly evaded the successes of their peers. Still, the music that founders J.D, A.D Burrise and their 10-12 band members created was a perfect combination of West Coast raw soul, disco and funk that resulted in a religious fan following across the globe.

Chocolate Buttermilk Band 2LP "Head Games:The Story Of Larry Akles & CBM Records" LP (Past Due) 
Founded by Larry Akles in 1971 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, The Chocolate Buttermilk Band, has been one of the busiest and most successful cover and backing bands in the southern United States for the last several decades. While they're little known outside the region, their handful of singles from the early 1980s are, for record collectors, among the best and most desirable in modern soul and boogie funk.

Dixon, Larry "Can't Price Love" LP (Past Due) 
Dixon, Larry "I'm So In Love" LP (Past Due)

Hawkins, Screamin' Jay "The Bizarre Years" [Limited Purple Vinyl] LP (Real Gone Music) 
This 10-track compilation captures the best tracks that Hawkins cut in the early '90s for Bizarre Records, the imprint originally founded by Frank Zappa and his business partner/manager Herb Cohen. Among the highlights are his two Tom Waits covers, 'Whistling Past the Graveyard' and 'Heart Attack and Vine,' Jay's first-time-on-vinyl disquisition on oral hygiene, 'Shut Your Mouth When You Sneeze,' and his lustful ode to the Twin Peaks star, 'Sherilyn Fenn.' Pressed in lurid purple vinyl limited to 1000 copies, with the aforementioned notes by Mr. Morris.

Logg "s/t" LP (Be With) 
The undisputed Godfather of Boogie, Leroy Burgess's Logg project is his grand masterpiece. The self-titled LP, originally released on Salsoul in August 1981, is one of the greatest albums of the post-disco era. With all the touchstones of Burgess's finest work - breezy grooves, undulating synths, funk-drenched bass and life-affirming lyrics - delivered with gospel-derived vocals and harmonies - it's a record to uplift both body and spirit.

Mason, Vaughan & Butch Dayo "Feel My Love" LP (Be With) 
If ever an album could transport you to the hazy sunshine and imagined halcyon paradise of Southern California in the mid-1980s, could capture the early evening warmth of hanging at an inclusive boogie jam as it approaches "magic hour" in Santa Ana or Anaheim, then it's Vaughan Mason and Butch Dayo's Feel My Love. A brilliantly produced deep slung, low rider funk classic originally released on Salsoul in 1983. It's a masterpiece of "funk love music".

"Freedom for the Stallion" by v/a 3xLP (Cairo)  
The 4th in the Cairo Records soul compilation series (after "The Love You Save", "All This Goes Too", and "The Truth Is A Lie"). For this one, all the stops have been pulled. This compilation spans everything from very popular well known soul artists to hard to find singles by obscure but equally great artists. It's all HEAVY soul songs - no light weight fare here. Lots of deep ballads and a few groovers. There are also some amazing stripped down demo versions of popular tunes never before on vinyl. Gold foil print on cover, triple LP, black inner sleeves and 20 page full color liner notes. This record will go fast, so get it while you can.

"Puro Tayta Shanti" by v/a LP (Little Axe) 
From the central sierra of Peru. Tayta Shanti's long history of complex syncretism is expressed through its simple song structure.

Compilation includes liner notes and photos.


COMPOSERS / LIBRARY MUSIC / NEW AGE

EXPERIMENTAL
Fennesz "Agora" LP (Touch) 
Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. His lush and luminous compositions resemble sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece. Full color inner and outer sleeve. Mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye. "The experimental musician's sweeping, ambient album works in small, fascinating ways from moment to moment but has a cumulative force that is unlike anything he's done in years." --Pitchfork (8.5, Best New Music)

Makino, Kayo & Tori Kudo "Ein Traum Fur Dich" LP (Black Truffle)  
Black Truffle release a genuine head-scratcher, the first collaboration between DJ/mixtape-compiler Kayo Makino and underground legend Tori Kudo (Maher Shalal Hash Baz). These two side-long pieces are sonic environments constructed by Makino for Kudo's piano to inhabit, or, as the LP's credits suggest, a cinéma pour l'oreille in which Kudo's piano plays the starring role. Two unique musical personalities bridge the mundane and the surreal, opening up a dream-space both haunted and hospitable. Mastered by Jim O'Rourke at Steamroom, Japan. Vinyl cut by Rashed Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.

Includes a 28-page book, with exclusive photographs, and a long-form interview with Masami Akita charting the continuum of Merzbow from 1979 to the present day.

Shiraishi, Takayuki "Missing Link" LP (Studio Mule) Studio Mule presents Missing Link, a collection by Japanese living legend electronic producer Takayuki Shiraishi.

"Seito: In the Beginning, Woman Was the Sun"  by v/a LP (Akuphone) 
Seito: In the Beginning, Woman Was the Sun gathers Japanese female artists from various electronic and experimental music fields. Like the Tokyo Flashback series issued by P.S.F. in the early 1990s, this collection recorded between 2017 and 2019 exposes the richness of the contemporary Japanese underground music scene. The title refers to a cult feminist magazine printed in Japan in the 1910s.

First EP from Austin-based psychedelic bluesmen. 

Friday, July 26th

POP/ ROCK
B Boys "Dudu" LP/CD (Captured Tracks) 
New York's B Boys find inspiration in the chaos that surrounds them: the aggressive attitude and sonic lawlessness of the city they live, work, and breathe in every day. Their raw, yet meticulous style is characterized by rhythmic complexity, commanding riffs, and introspective lyrics that are as playful and self-aware as they are cutting. The sprightly sarcasm and acerbic commentary continues on the band's highly anticipated sophomore LP, Dudu. Recorded by Gabe Wax (Deerhunter, Ought, Crumb) at Outlier Inn, and mixed by Andy Chugg (Pill, Pop. 1280, Bambara).

Body of Light "Time To Kill" LP/CD (DAIS) 
Birthed from Arizona's regaled Ascetic House collective, Body of Light is a dark synth-pop outfit comprised of young brothers Andrew and Alexander Jarson. What began as a vehicle for their exploration of noise and sound during their early teens has evolved into an established production over the last decade, as Body of Light continues to carve out their own style of complex, structured, and moving dancefloor electronics. On their third album Time to Kill, Body of Light refines their brand of cold and driving synth pop with a bold pallet of sounds and a focus on uncharted technique and purpose.

Caamp "By and By" LP/CD (Mom & Pop) 
Blending heartfelt acoustic songs with live performances full of infectious intensity, Caamp have been blowing up on Spotify and on festival stages around the world.

CFM (Charlie Moonheart) "Soundtrack to an Empty Room" LP (In the Red) 
Charles Moothart is releasing his third album under the moniker CFM. It's called Soundtrack For An Empty Room and keeps it cookin' off 2016's Still Life Of Citrus And Slime and 2017's Dichotomy Desaturated. Moothart is a frequent contributor on many of Ty Segall's solo ventures but also as a co-conspirator in bands like the blazing jam unit Fuzz, and a fantastic monster of a group called GØGGS, which throws Segall and Moothart in with Chris Shaw of Ex-Cult.

Cherubs "Immaculada High" LP/CD (Relapse) 
Rightfully hailed as "the noisiest pop music on the planet" by Pitchfork, Austin, TX's cult noise rock trio Cherubs have been purveyors of sonic bedlam since their inception in 1991. After an unforeseen return to the scene from a two-decade hiatus in 2014, the Cherubs have now joined forces with the equally revered Relapse Records for the release of their fifth long-player Immaculada High. Recorded and engineered by Erik Wofford (Explosions in the Sky, The Black Angels, My Morning Jacket) at Cacophony Studio in Austin, Immaculada High is 11 songs of signature Cherubs clamor with an added twist of Texas-sized, psychedelic racket. Smooth, rumbling low-end rhythms interplay with feedback drenched, chuggin' guitars, relentless tone and vocalist Kevin Whitley's shrill, life-of-the-LSD-party vocals. On Immaculada High, Cherubs loudly proclaim their title as bonafide noise rock legends who continue to forge transgressive yet remarkably accessible punk for a jaded world.

Cross Record "s/t" LP (Ba Da Bing!) 
"What is your wish? What do you expect?" Cross Record's self-titled third album begins with Emily Cross's disembodied voice intoning from an otherworldly vacuum. In the three years since her last album, Cross has divorced, quit drinking, become a death doula, started the observational podcast What I'm Looking At, and toured and recorded with Sub Pop's Loma, the trio she formed with Dan Duszynski on drums and Jonathan Meiburg (Shearwater) on guitar / vocals. On Cross Record, she guides the listener like a sonic Virgil, delivering a textured soundscape of meditative curiosity, akin to Low's Double Negative, Broadcast's The Noise Made By People and Radiohead's Kid A.

Crover, Dale "The Fickle Finger Of Fate" CS (Burger) 
New solo album from Melvins drummer.

De Lorians "s/t" LP (Beyond Beyond is Beyond) 
Meet De Lorians, Tokyos newest fire music exports, by way of their self-titled debut. Grown from the always-heady Tokyo music scene and led by Takefumi Ishida, playing sax and synth, all five De Lorians contribute material to what they call pataphysical music. Ranging in age from 22 to 27, the five De Lorians tap into a library of ideas from their precursors, less in retro-loving emulation than for alchemical strategy. The seven tracks here burst with overstuffed Weasels Ripped My Flesh-style action: bonkers horn arrangements, savage guitar solos, constant movement, through-composed sections, improv, surreality, and the occasional peaceful woodwind-dabbled valley.

Dude York "Falling" LP/CD (Hardly Art) 
On Falling, their second full-length for Hardly Art, the Seattle trio explores that sentiment-evoked by the broken cake on the album cover and the soft confetti on the inside sleeve-through impossibly catchy and emotive songs that investigate the ways you can fall in and out of relationships, and sometimes fall back together. Recorded at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco with producer Patrick Brown, Falling finds Dude York sounding bigger and more fully-realized than ever with hits that would feel perfectly at home sandwiched between Jimmy Eat World and Third Eye Blind in early 2000s alt-rock radio rotation, while somehow still sounding utterly their own.

Eno, Brian "Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks" 2xCD (Capitol) 
Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks was written, produced and performed by Brian Eno together with his brother Roger and Daniel Lanois. The music was originally recorded in 1983 for a landmark feature-length documentary, For All Mankind, directed by American journalist, film director and screenwriter, Al Reinert.

Johnston, Daniel "Hi, How Are You / Yip Jump Music" LP (PIAS) 
Diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, singer-songwriter, musician and visual artist Daniel Johnston is highly regarded in the lo-fi and alternative music scenes for his cassette recordings which are notable for their pure and childlike soul. He gathered a cult following when Kurt Cobain was seen wearing a t-shirt featuring the artwork from Johnston's 1983 album Hi, How Are You. According to Cobain Johnston's Yip Jump Music was in his Top 50 albums of all time. Johnston's songs have been covered by the likes of Tom Waits, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Bright Eyes, Teenage Fanclub, Beck, Wilco, Spiritualized and TV on the Radio among others. 35 years after their release, the inimitable artist's much loved cassette recordings Hi, How Are You and Yip Jump Music are available together in a triple vinyl package for the first time.

Normil Hawaiians "What's Going On" LP (Upset the Rhythm) 
Reissue, originally released in 1984. Material mostly recorded at Foel Studios in Powys, Wales led by studio Dave Anderson (Hawkwind/Amon Düül II). Whereas More Wealth Than Money had evolved in the recording studio, What's Going On began to develop as a more pre-meditated, albeit piecemeal work. LP version comes in printed gatefold sleeve; includes offset (matte) paper inner sleeve and booklet; edition of 500.

Of Monsters and Men "Fever Dream" LP/CD (Republic) 
You think you know the Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men, but you have no idea. Within the first minute of their new single 'Alligator' you'll be wondering if this huge anthem is the brainchild of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs fronting Arcade Fire -all thumping drums, brimming guitars and a call-to-arms chorus about taking control.

Solange "When I Get Home" LP (Columbia) 
When I Get Home is the new album from Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and visual artist Solange Knowles. This release represents the next phase in Solange's evolution as an artist, and is the follow up to her critically acclaimed 2016 album A Seat at the Table. The album is an exploration of origin. It asks the question how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution. The artist returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this. When I Get Home was written, performed, and executive produced by Solange, and includes contributions from Tyler, the Creator, Chassol, Playboi Carti, Standing on the Corner, Panda Bear, Devin the Dude, The-Dream, and more. It also features samples from Third Ward's own Debbie Allen, Phylicia Rashad, poet Pat Parker, and Scarface.

New album from the long-running alternative group.

Wedding Present, The "Tommy 30" LP+CD (Scopitones) 
The Wedding Present's Tommy, released in 1989, was made up of the early songs from the singles and radio sessions that had catapulted them from being bedsit musicians into indie darlings. Tommy 30, however, is a brand-new re-recording of Tommy. Enter a more confident vocalist... an altogether growlier guitar. A bigger sound. Standard LP version includes CD. 

v/a "You're Not from Around Here" LP (Numero Group) 
The previously unissued soundtrack to the 1964 western noir, discovered after 55 years in the Wayne Louis Moody archive. Sixteen languid guitar instrumentals, femme fatale dirges, and cinematic country crooners score the loneliest night of one man's life.

Runaways "Queen of Noise" LP (Modern Harmonic) 
Arriving mere months after their self-titled debut, the Runaways' sophomore LP (and last with singer Cherie Currie) found the fiery femmes cranking up the intensity with these amped-up odes to sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and rebellion: "Queens of Noise," "Take It or Leave It," "Midnight Music," "Born to Be Bad," "Neon Angels on the Road to Ruin," "I Love Playin' with Fire," "Johnny Guitar," "Heartbeat" and more. Blast this on CD or on the first-ever authorized U.S. vinyl reissue (in a replica of the original jacket, with lyric insert).

Runaways "s/t" LP (Modern Harmonic) 
How could this be? And yet, it's true: this is the first ever authorized U.S. vinyl reissue of the 1976 Runaways debut that changed the face (and gender) of rock 'n' roll. These snarling adolescent anthems inspired generations of future rebels (and, of course, set Joan Jett on her path to stardom): "Cherry Bomb," "You Drive Me Wild," "Thunder," "Secrets," "Lovers," "Blackmail" and more. Your black vinyl LP arrives in a replica of the original gatefold jacket (with lyric insert).


PUNK / HARDCORE  
Dark Carnival "The Last Great Ride" LP (Bang!) 
Niagara (Destroy All Monsters) and Ron Asheton (The Stooges), among other great Detroit musicians, recorded this killer album back in 1996. Remastered and reissued on vinyl with two added tracks to the original vinyl release. Detroit high-energy rock at its purest essence! 150 gram vinyl; edition of 500.

Suicide "s/t" LP (Mute) 
Suicide's landmark self-titled LP was originally released in 1977, seven years after the group's initial conception as part of the performance art scene on New York's Lower East Side. It's hard to overstate the importance of the seven tracks on Suicide, which paved the way for punk, industrial, hip hop, noise and beyond. "Ghost Rider" accelerates with brutal anguish and desire for everything rock 'n' roll. Martin Rev's utterly singular "instrument" pounds out a synthetic soundscape, while Alan Vega's oversaturated vocals obsess over motorcycle getaways. "Rocket U.S.A." distills the duo's dynamic power down to a ghostly pulse, while the psycho-drama of "Frankie Teardrop" (Bruce Springsteen's all-time favorite song) delves even further into cinematic storytelling and, at the same time, clears the room at the end of the night.


METAL
Abbath "Outstrider" LP (Season of Mist) 
New album from Abbath, frontman of black metal legends Immortal.

Iron Maiden "Brave New World" CD (Sanctuary) 
Remastered reissue in digipack.

Nebula "Holy Shit" LP (Heavy Psych Sounds) 
22 years after their first release (1999) and ten years after their last album (2008), Nebula present their sixth album, Holy Shit. Holy Shit quickly puts to rest the question that's loomed since guitarist/vocalist Eddie Glass, bassist Tom Davies, and drummer Michael Amster announced the band's reformation in 2017: Nebula are still Nebula. The basic tracks were done in two days, recorded at Mysterious Mammal Studios in LA with Matt Lynch (also of Snail) at the helm.

Neurosis & Jarboe "s/t" LP (Neurot) 
Neurot Recordings are proud to reissue the landmark collaboration Neurosis & Jarboe, which was originally released in 2003. This latest version is fully remastered and with entirely new artwork from Aaron Turner, available on vinyl for the first time, as well as CD and digital formats.

Recorded in the company of several dogs and numerous cats with a Zoom Sampletrack ST-224, two mini disc recorders, a Tascam four track cassette machine, a pile of Arthur Lyman and Martin Denny CDs, and Cooper's lap steel. Mike Cooper on the recording: "My intention was to create a kind of music that I had hoped to hear when we visited Hawaii in the early '90s (some kind of Hawaiian Futurism maybe?) which we never did." 


REGGAE
Mighty Sparrow, The "The Slave" LP (Modern Harmonic) 
"When I heard Mighty Sparrow sing 'The Slave,' I knew what I wanted to do with my music." So said Bob Marley, one of countless fans of this Calypso King from Trinidad. Here's the first reissue of the iconic 1963 debut of Sparrow's own National Recording Company: "The Slave," "Harry & Mama," "Stupid Married Man," "Kennedy & Khrushchev," "The Old Man & the Donkey," "Popularity Contest," and more style, wit and (sometimes) scathing songs by the incendiary Sparrow. First vinyl reissue (red vinyl) and first CD release of this massively influential LP.

SOUL / FUNK / R&B
Channels 4, The "Cross My Heart b/w Carla & The Carlettes Groovin" 7" (Big Crown) 
For the first time ever on a 45, two tunes pulled from one of Brooklyn's most sought after "Holy Grail" soul records, YIA Talent Hunt Winners. Youth in Action, Inc. (YIA) was formed in 1963 when the Central Brooklyn Coordinating Council received a grant to develop a youth services program in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community. At one point they threw a local talent show and the winners of the talent show were invited into the studio to record some of their tunes. The Talent Show Winners album is the top five amateur vocal groups backed by a local band known as The Thrillers Band, recorded sometime around 1968. There's an unduplicatable charm on these recordings coming from the lo fi studio set up of the time, the fervor that the youths on these records are perform- ing, and the pumped in audience applause they went with to make it see like the recordings were from the actual talent show.

Oroza, Bobby "Lonely Girl b/w Alone Again" 7" (Big Crown) 
"Lonely Girl" is a uptempo dancer sure to fill the floor at soul parties around the world. Bobby finds a kindred spirit in an introverted young lady and puts his best foot forward to persuade her to take a chance on him. The Cold Diamond & Mink production puts this one over the top with their signature tough drums and lush instrumentation laying down the perfect paper for Bobby's poetry to be inked on. The B side is another one of the crushing ballads that made Bobby famous in the first place. "Alone Again" fits perfectly in both the warmest sunny day in California and the coldest darkest winter night in Helsinki. It is undeniable that Bobby and Cold Diamond & Mink are a match made in heaven and have come up with a sound that is entirely their own. Here's another two-sider showcasing two different variations on that sound.

Peru Negro "s/t" LP (Vampisoul) 
Reissue of Perú Negro's self-titled album, sub-titled Gran Premio Del Festival Hispanoamericano De La Danza Y La Cancion, originally released in 1973. Afro-Peruvian music, also known as "música criolla", finds its roots in West African music, Spanish and European genres and native musical traditions from Peru. After a long struggle to preserve it through oral means over generations, a renewed interest in those rhythms and melodies arose in the 1950s. The dance company Perú Negro won the main award at 1969's Festival Hispanoamericano de la Danza y la Canción, and a few years later their repertoire was included in this album, a key record in Afro-Peruvian culture which introduced música criolla to a wider audience. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.

Edgar Valcárcel is responsible for introducing locally the new languages of the international musical avant-garde, in a meeting with the legacies of Peruvian native music, where the folkloric material was used under very free and abstract conceptions. Although Valcárcel distinguished himself as a prolific and remarkable composer of orchestral and chamber music, as well as a notable pianist, his interest in electronic composition was registered in four pieces, presented here on vinyl for the first time. Part of the Essentials Sounds collection, with which Buh Records presents a series of fundamental works of the musical avant-garde in Peru.

Superpitcher wrote the lyrics and Dip In The Pool's Miyako Koda translated to Japanese and did the reading. "Mishima" on side B is a Superpitcher trademark melancholic house tune. It sounds like updated percussive NYC house from the early '90s.


EXPERIMENTAL
Dang, Ami "Parted Plains" LP (Leaving Records) 
Ami Dang fuses sitar, voice, and electronics to create east-meets-west, ambient, experimental, psych music. On the experimental instrumental album Parted Plains, she draws inspiration from South Asian and Middle Eastern folktales.
