    Merge

    The music on The Bible is more unpredictable than it’s ever been on a Lambchop record. Jazz careening into country, into disco, into funk, and back to country. All tied together with Wagner’s own voice, born from a perspective on his own life inspired by taking care of his father at the end of his life. *Indie Exclusive Peak yellow & Black Marbled 2LP*

    Merge

    Drawing on maximalist rock epics from Who's Next to Hysteria, Titus Andronicus have crafted their richest, densest, and hardest-hitting album to date, matching the sprawl and scope of their most celebrated work while also streamlining their ambitious attack to greater effect than ever before. *Indie Exclusive Silver & Black LP*

    RCA

    This unique collection is separated into 3 parts, each with a different sonic perspective. “Hallelujah” is a pared-back version of the music featuring Tyler and his band, “Jubilee” is full band including strings, horns, bgvs and a touch of sitar, and an exciting new sound in “Joyful Noise.” It’s a genuine concept album showcasing truly incredible musicianship.

    Icon For Hire

    Follow-up to their 2011 debut album Scripted. The female fronted band is comprised of Ariel (vocals), Shawn Jump (guitar) and Adam Kronshagen (drums). Since 2007, the band has been establishing their strong following by touring extensively. Often compared to Paramore, this 2013 release should silence this comparisons once and for all.

    Metric Music International

    Metric’s newest collection of electro-indie drags you from the abyss that is our current day-to-day, acknowledging the fragile fate of life whilst encouraging you to appreciate the here and now. It’s dark and claustrophobic, but dreamy and imaginative with grand, cinematic synth arrangements. *Indie Exclusive Sky Blue LP*

    alt_text
    Fat Possum

    This impenetrable, cinematic wall of sound is the band’s best offering to date. It’s an experimental pocket of creativity long enough to provide 20-tracks of unfiltered punk chaos. Remove all distractions and allow the controlled chaos of Free LSD fill your headphones with bright melodies and harsh realities. *Indie Exclusive Deep Purple LP*

    alt_text
    Nonesuch

    Includes 84 unreleased tracks of alternates, demos & instrumentals, 9/18/01 WXRT Sound Opinions performance/interview and complete 7/23/02 concert at The Pageant, St. Louis. Plus new liner notes and extensive conversation among Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche & Jim O’Rourke and hardbound book with loads of previously unseen photos.

    Herb Alpert Presents

    This new set of 11 songs contains gentle ballads, upbeat romps and covers of classics like Louis Armstrong's "On The Sunny Side Of The Street". Few artists in the history of American music have been able to stay relevant decade after decade like the 87-year-old Alpert. So, put on your shades and take a walk on the Sunny Side Of The Street.

    BMG

    Doggerel is a mature yet visceral record of gruesome folk, ballroom pop and brutal rock, haunted by the ghosts of affairs and indulgences, driven wild by cosmic forces and envisioning digital afterlives where no God has provided one. And all the while, right there on the news, another distant storm approaches. *Indie Exclusive Yellow LP*

    alt_text
    Better Noise Music

    These Detroit rock upstarts got their start five years ago and instantly began cutting their teeth in the underground rock scene, building an enthusiastic fan base the old-fashioned way. Their debut is loaded with massive arena rockers like "Coming for Blood" (feat. From Ashes To New) and "Blow (feat. Ice Nine Kills).

    alt_text
    New West

    Produced by Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Denim & Diamonds has the Highway Queen embracing a more rock-oriented sound while still maintaining the heartfelt outlaw country sound – and ‘fuck-off’ flare – she’s developed across her previous three releases. *Indie Exclusive Opaque Yellow LP*

    alt_text
    Smithsonian Folkways

    Jake Blount and his collaborators embody a group of Black climate refugees as they perform a religious service, invoking spirituals that are age-old even now, familiar in their content but extraordinary in their presentation. These songs bind this future community together and their shared past; beauty and power, devastation and heartbreak.

    BMG

    The carefully crafted record, which is sonically their best when it comes to poetic lyricism and intricate production, realistically captures their ten years of experience and proves that stepping out of your comfort zone and taking risks can pay off. 5 Seconds of Summer have truly done themselves proud with this one. *Indie Exclusive Bone LP*

    alt_text
    Domino

    As per usual, Alex wrote and demoed these songs at home; but, for the sake of both new tones and “a routine that was outside of my apartment,” he asked some half-dozen engineers to help him produce the “best” recording quality, whatever that meant. The result is an album more dynamic than ever in its sonic palette. *Indie Exclusive Clear LP*

    alt_text
    Partisan Records

    The eight album from the English songwriter is the best work of her career. Soothing, immersive, and self-produced, it conjures a dreamlike atmosphere with songs that spiral out into the ether. It’s as moving and real as Orton has ever been, embracing her electro-folk past while embracing a weathered, gorgeous future. *Clear LP*

    alt_text
    Century Media

    With tons of energy and fun on board, the band from Castrop-Rauxel delivers an unprecedentedly fulminant metalcore-firework that is second to none. On 11 incredibly strong tracks including the already released hit singles "We Got The Moves" and "Pump It" Electric Callboy show on their undoubtedly best album so far what they are made of.

    alt_text
    Prosthetic

    Enveloping Absurdity is an incredibly solid and impressive debut record, one that ruminates on philosophical absurdism, existentialism and human consciousness against a backdrop of suffocatingly minacious death metal. It’s lean musicianship brilliantly capturing the best of old school death metal without straying too far into the realms of imitation.

    alt_text
    Clouds Hill

    The Mars Volta pulses with subtle brilliance, Caribbean rhythms underpinning sophisticated, turbulent songcraft. Their sound and fury channeled to greatest effect. Distilling all the passion, poetry and power at their fingertips, The Mars Volta is the most accessible music the group have ever recorded.

    Brooke Annibale - Better By Now

    Brooke Annibale - Better By Now - Nettwerk Records
    Written in early 2021, Better By Now features 10 blossoming indie-pop tracks that Brooke Annibale describes as a "spectrum of emotions." In her trademark layered approach, Brooke reflects on love, anxiety, and how two seemingly opposing forces can exist at once. "Better By Now is almost 50% about falling in love and 50% about depression and anxiety," she says. "And what that means in my life and how that applies to the world we're in right now."

    Dayglow - People In Motion - Dayglow, LLC

Now, after racking up over a billion streams and selling out headline tours around the world, Dayglow returns with his third album People In Motion. Fun and colorful, People In Motion meditates on the ideas of commitment, inner peace, and movement, while inviting the listener to the dance floor to leave the chaos and noise of our current culture behind.

    Alvvays - Blue Rev

    Alvvays - Blue Rev - Polyvinyl Records
    Alvvays' third album, the nervy joyride that is the compulsively lovable Blue Rev, doesn't simply reassert what's always been great about Alvvays but instead reimagines it. They have, in part and sum, never been better. There are newly aggressive moments here-the gleeful and snarling guitar solo at the heart of opener "Pharmacist," or the explosive cacophony near the middle of "Many Mirrors." And there are some purely beautiful spans, too-the church- organ fantasia of "Fourth Figure," or the blue-skies bridge of "Belinda Says." But the power and magic of Blue Rev stems from Alvvays' ability to bridge ostensible binaries, to fuse elements that seem antithetical in single songs-cynicism and empathy, anger and play, clatter and melody, the soft and the steely.

    Tom Waits - Blood Money: 20th Anniversary Edition

    Tom Waits - Blood Money: 20th Anniversary Edition - Anti
    Blood Money is etched. It’s scratched out in bold, dark lines, with marimba, trumpet, and bass clarinet and contains some songs of Tom Waits’ most memorable melodies. The songs are declarative, sardonic, unforgiving, musical dispatches, from the bottom of the heap. “Blood Money is flesh and bone, earthbound,” said Waits. “The songs are rooted in reality: jealousy, rage, the human meat wheel...They are more car- nal. I like a beautiful song that tells you terrible things. We all like bad news out of a pretty mouth. I like songs to sound as though they’ve been aging in a barrel and distressed.”
