Willie Nelson - Ride Me Back Home [LP]|
New Vinyl: $21.99
Ride Me Back Home is another incredible addition to Willie Nelson's legendary catalog that finds him working once again with producer Buddy Cannon. Ride Me Back Home sits beside 2017's God's Problem Child and 2018's Last Man Standing as a trilogy of superior songcraft exploring ideas of mortality with wisdom, empathy and a winking love of life. Nelson and Cannon co-wrote a handful of songs but also call on their favorite songsmiths…great writers with great stories to tell: Sonny Throckmorton, Guy Clark, Mac Davis, Buzz Rabin. The result is a magical collection of tunes with emphasis on the lyric. Backed by an amazing band of Nashville gunslingers, Ride Me Back Home finds Willie Nelson making some of the most inspired work of his career.
Bad Books - III [LP]|
New Vinyl: $21.98
The stars have finally aligned and the triple-tailed comet has reappeared. Keep your ears to the skies for another momentous encounter with Bad Books III. What Andy Hull calls their new “Simon & Garfunkel in space” style—sparse structures, simple harmonies, and gorgeous sonic embellishments. But considering both their inter-personal dynamics and joyful congregation, perhaps it would be more accurate to refer to the 2019 version of Bad Books as “Simon & Garfunkel as true friends.”
Titus Andronicus - An Obelisk [LP]|
New Vinyl: $19.99
Single LP on black vinyl in single jacket on uncoated paper w/ eurosleeve. Includes coupon for full download
Buddy & Julie Miller - Breakdown On 20th Ave. South [LP]|
New Vinyl: $22.98
Their first album together in nearly 10 years, Breakdown On 20th Ave. South is an album of Julie Miller songs produced by Buddy Miller. As a couple and individually, Buddy and Julie have been nominated and received multiple awards including Grammys, Americana Awards, Dove Awards among others. Julie Millers songs have been recorded by a diverse range of artists including Emmylou Harris, Lee Ann Womack, Levon Helm, Solomon Burke, and Miranda Lambert. Buddy Miller is known for his work as a guitarist, performing live and in the studio with artists such as Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris. Buddys production credits include albums with Plant, Harris, Earle, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin and many more.Breakdown On 20th Ave. South is a first rate showcase for Julies finely crafted lyrics. There is a line from the track Spittin' on Fire that best illustrates Julies sharp edged word play: You're a dangerous little storm, one part cold and one part warm. The song War Child is a cry for help that usually goes unheard. A cry for for help from thousands and thousands of children stolen from their families, forced to carry a gun at ages as young as 7 or 8. Never to see home again. Tracks like, Im Gonna Make You Love Me and Everything Is Your Fault hint at the ups and downs of love. The entire album is tied together by Buddys unfussy production style. Breakdown On 20th Ave. South is a treat for long time fans of Buddy & Julie and a delightful discovery for new listeners.
Quantic - Atlantic Oscillations [2LP]|
New Vinyl: $26.98
Atlantic Oscillations marks the return of world-renowned British producer Quantic with his most cohesive and intricate album to date. Bringing together new players and concepts with a dance orientated sound that has enchanted fans and tastemakers across the world for nearly two decades, it showcases Will Quantic Hollands artistry and rare ability to intertwine the electronic with the orchestral. Embracing his own love of albums that travel, taking the listener on twists and turns, with the loss of the album narrative that has occurred in this day of streaming, Holland utilises the space created to explore more creativity as a producer. As he admits, on the whole, the common theme on this record is that it is probably more intricate and arranged than previous records. I spent three times as long as any other Quantic record and spent a lot of time in the detail. This meticulous attitude is apparent throughout; each track has been crafted to draw the listeners attention, with elements of both musical originality and a sense of modernity.
Mannequin Pussy - Patience [LP]|
New Vinyl: $19.98
The third full-length from Mannequin Pussy, Patience is an album fascinated with the physical experience of the body, its songs tracking the movements of mouths and hands and racing hearts, skin and spit and teeth and blood. Deeply attuned to the power of their own physicality, the Philadelphia-based band channels complex emotion in blistering riffs, thrashing rhythms, vocals that feel as immediate and untamed as a gut reaction. But throughout Patience, the Philadelphia-based band contrasts that raw vitality with intricate melodies and finely detailed arrangements, building a strange and potent tension that makes the album all the more cathartic. The follow-up to Romantic—a 2016 release praised by Pitchfork for “combin[ing] punk, shoegaze, death metal, and more, with the ferocious push-pull energy of a mosh pit”—Patience came to life at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. In creating the album, Mannequin Pussy worked with producer/engineer Will Yip (Quicksand, The Menzingers), shaping an explosive sound that never overshadows the subtlety of their songwriting. “In the past there’s been a chaotic feeling to the recording process, but working with Will put us in a different headspace,” says Dabice. “It helped us show our progression over the past few years and make a very crisp-sounding record, without losing the dirtiness of what Mannequin Pussy really is.”
Marshall - Layers|
New CD: $12.98
The idea for Layers began to percolate a couple years ago, as Marshall was finding success with his joyous pop-band Walk off the Earth, the YouTube overachievers–turned–Juno winners. Still, he’d always envisioned himself falling somewhere between the musically transcendent Bob Dylan and Bon Iver. An emotionally tumultuous album, Layers is the sound of Marshall evincing everything from toxic relationships past to present insecurities and is the next-level output of an artist without boundaries.
Philip Bailey - Love Will Find A Way|
New CD: $13.95
For over 50 years, Earth Wind and Fire provided the soundtrack to the lives of many. With award winning albums and chart-topping hits such as “September”, “Devotion”, “Reasons” and “Keep Your Head to the Sky” EWF have stood the test of time and continue to be a force in music. Philp Bailey, one of the lead singers, also experienced solo success with “Easy Lover” and “Walking on the Chinese Wall.” This new album, Love Will Find A Way, has Philip teamed up with some of today’s hottest, progressive Jazz artists such as Robert Glasper, Christian McBride, Kamasi Washington, Casey Benjamin, Chick Corea, Steve Gadd and more. The single, “Billy Jack”, was written by the legendary Curtis Mayfield and produced by both Robert Glasper and Philip Bailey.
Hot Chip - A Bath Full Of Ecstasy [2LP]|
New Vinyl: $27.98
Hot Chip's electrifying seventh album, A Bath Full of Ecstasy, is the group’s definitive release, crystallizing the sound they’ve become celebrated for – bridging euphoria and melancholy with colorful melodies, idiosyncratic vocalizations and pounding electronic pop rhythms. Recorded in Paris and London, A Bath Full Of Esctasy sees the group (Owen Clarke, Al Doyle, Joe Goddard, Felix Martin and Alexis Taylor) open up to a more adventurous and collaborative song-writing process, choosing to work with outside producers for the first time: Philippe Zdar, the French maestro who’s shaped the magic of Cassius and Phoenix, and Rodaidh McDonald , the Scot who’s collaborated with The XX, David Byrne and Sampha, among others. A Bath Full of Ecstasy is a fresh, invigorating and essential new chapter in the band's career. The record is a celebration of joy but recognizes the struggle it can take to get to that point of happiness. It is time to get lost in A Bath Full of Ecstasy.
Two Door Cinema Club - False Alarm [LP]|
New Vinyl: $19.98
Two Door Cinema Club's highly-anticipated fourth album False Alarm finds the three piece gloriously unshackled and creatively at the peak of their game. Across it's ten tracks, False Alarm wryly scans and satirizes the social and environmental woes of 2019 through the prism of wonderfully off-kilter pop, simultaneously borrowing from and warping elements of future pop, disco, rock, funk and soul. Recorded in sessions between London and LA with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, The Killers), it's an LP that takes the familiar and twists it, to startling and stimulating effect.
Hollywood Vampires - Rise [2LP]|
New Vinyl: $23.98
The Hollywood Vampires return with new music from their explosive second album, 'Rise.' Rock and roll royalty Joe Perry, Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp and shock rock icon Alice Cooper join forces once again for the unmissable rock album of 2019. Seconds into the opening track 'I Want My Now,' it's clear this supergroup has created something special - the chemistry between the individuals is unmistakeable when they come together on stage or in the recording studio. Forget the star-studded lineup's individual reputations, 'Rise' is some of the purest, unapologetic and most enjoyable rock and roll of the year, made by masters of the craft and true fans of the form. ''Rise' is not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I've ever been a part of. I approached it very differently than I usually do when working on an album. Each of us; Joe, Johnny, Tommy and myself have written songs on this album. What is different though is that I didn't try to change any songs to be more 'Alice-like.' Because each of us has different influences, the sound of this album is very cool. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires' sound really is, whereas with the first album we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock n roll brothers.' - Alice Cooper
Richard Reed Parry - Quiet River Of Dust Vol. 2 [LP]|

Richard Reed Parry’s Quiet River of Dust, is a meditative, widescreen musical experience with Beach Boy harmonies and a hypnotic pulse.

In 2014, he released an album of biologically inspired compositions, Music for Heart and Breath, on the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon classical label.

Dream pop legends The Ocean Blue release their first new album in over 6 years - Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves on Korda Records.

Various Artists - This Is the Town: Tribute to Nilsson Volume 2 [LP]|
New Vinyl: $24.98
This Is The Town: A Tribute to Nilsson (Volume 2) celebrates the songs of the illustrious Harry Nilsson. Throughout this captivating 14-track set, defying expectations is a continuous theme. The kindred spirits of Nilsson assembled here are as stellar as they are varied in their art, each underscoring different facets of his songwriting. A follow up to the initial This Is The Town tribute released by Royal Potato Family in 2014, this second volume once again finds producer Kenny Siegal at the helm, capturing the album's vibrant and diverse performances at Old Soul Studios in Catskill, NY. Kicking things off in grand fashion is Mikaela Davis's rendition of Take 54, the opening cut from Nilsson s 1972 release, 'Son of Schmilsson.' Davis a classically trained harpist injects her own brand of feminist swagger, turning the masculine bravado of the original inside out. Equally intriguing is Martha Wainwright's take on Daddy's Song a standout that is particularly revealing in its approach. Here Wainwright opts to slow the tempo and strip away the 60s psychedelia of the original to reveal the heartbreak of abandon ensconced within Nilsson's lyrics. It serves as a reminder that even though Nilsson was a pop artist, he was always conscious of the depths of his emotions and surroundings; being one-part troubled troubadour, one-part song-and-dance-man never seemed in conflict. Legendary rockers Cheap Trick get down and dirty with raucous guitars that emanate manic fuzz on their reading of Ambush. Vocalist Robin Zander's sublime vocals are unparalleled in their expression of the anxieties of war. But the tension is far from bombast, as the performance does everything it can to convey Nilsson's wry wit, something he was able to masterfully weave into even the most contentious of topics. Elsewhere, indie rockers Invisible Familiars add swirling synths and a percussive march to Old Forgotten Soldier, while Valley Queen uncovers a darker, more haunting depth in the Nilsson hit I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City. The attention to detail within these 14 recordings and the obvious love for the man who penned them by the artists assembled here exemplifies the timelessness of Nilsson's songs. Look no further than his recent resurgence, thanks in no small part to the use of Gotta Get Up in the Netflix series, 'Russian Doll,' as testimony to Nilsson's enduring charm and everlasting intrigue. At its peak, This Is The Town: A Tribute to Nilsson (Volume 2) lays before the listener a roadmap of the many directions to be discovered in the songs of one of pop's most exquisite artists.
Jim Lauderdale - From Another World [LP]|
New Vinyl: $26.98
