Duff Mckagan - Tenderness [LP] Tenderness [LP]

Guns N’ Roses bassist and New York Times bestselling author Duff McKagan’s new solo album, Tenderness, is a reflection on his experiences traveling the globe over two and a half years on GNR’s Not In This Lifetime tour. Encountering heartbreak, anger, fear, confusion and divide on his travels during this tumultuous time in our world history, McKagan channeled a collective hurt into songs of monolithic power. The album was produced by recent Grammy winner Shooter Jennings and features Jennings’ band along with appearances by The Waters and The Suicide Horn Section, amongst others. Pressed on 180-gram audiophile black vinyl and housed in a single-pocket gatefold jacket, the vinyl edition features 10 tracks and a unique sequence carefully selected by Duff and Shooter.

Bedouine - Bird Songs of a Killjoy [LP] Bird Songs of a Killjoy [LP]
When you listen to the love songs of LA-based Bedouine, you will be reminded of Karen Dalton’s world-wise voice or the breathy seduction of Minnie Riperton's vocals, the easy cool of French ye-ye singers, and the poetry of Joan Baez. Her folk is nomadic, wandering across time and space. On first discovery you may ask whether they're dated to 2019, or whether you've uncovered some forgotten classic. It makes sense that singer-songwriter Azniv Korkejian's arrival – both musically and personally – on her second record has been influenced by her own wanderlust, displacement, and curiosity.
Bird Songs of a Killjoy is a soundtrack to Spring blossom, to warm air on skin, to the concept of possibility. Some of the songs on this sophomore effort were from that same time period of fruitful creativity as her self-titled debut, which came out in June 2017. She continued her creative partnership with Gus Seyffert (Beck, Norah Jones) who produced them in his studio. For Bedouine, these songs have already served their healing purpose. Now it's time for them to move others. 

Bedouine $19.98
Kenny Wayne Shepherd - The Traveler [LP] The Traveler [LP]

The Traveler, an album of experience and profound resonance by the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. Recorded in Los Angeles, while the band was on a break from their uncompromising tour schedule that left them road-tested and ready to rock, The Traveler showcases some world-class musicians: vocalist Noah Hunt, drummer Chris “Whipper” Layton (formerly of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble), bassist Kevin McCormick, and keyboardists Jimmy McGorman and Joe Krown. The album features ten songs including eight new originals co-written by KWS and some of Nashville’s most in-demand songwriters, plus incendiary covers of Buffalo Springfield’s “Mr. Soul” and Joe Walsh’s “Turn to Stone.”

Sacred Paws - Run Around The Sun [Limited Edition Green LP] Run Around The Sun [Limited Edition Green LP]

Limited green colored vinyl LP pressing including digital download. 2019 release. Sacred Paws have a natural inclination not to take things too seriously. You can hear it all the way through a conversation with it's two members, guitarist Rachel Aggs and drummer Eilidh Rodgers, punctuated by rolls of giggles and thoughtful pauses, and you can hear it in the light touch they bring to their music, a jangly blend of indie pop full of fizzing world rhythms and bright horns. Run Around the Sun brims with upbeat reflections on growing up and looking back. Shimmering guitar riffs dance between snappy beats and swooning melodies that will have crowds committing to far more than a simple head-bob.

Kishi Bashi - Omoiyari [LP] Omoiyari [LP]

Omoiyari is Kishi Bashi's fourth album, following the acclaimed 151a (2012), Lighght (2014), and Sonderlust (2016). Channeling the hard-learned lessons of history, Omoiyari reflects the turbulent socio-political atmosphere of present day America. "I was shocked when I saw white supremacy really starting to show it's teeth again in America," Kishi Bashi says. "My parents are immigrants, they came to the United States from Japan post-World War II. As a minority I felt very insecure for the first time in my adult life in this country. I think that was the real trigger for this project." Kishi Bashi recognized parallels between the current U.S. adminis- tration's constant talk of walls and bans, and the xenophobic anxieties that led to the forced internment of Japanese-Americans in the months following the attack on Pearl Harbor. So he immersed himself in that period, visiting former prison sites and listening to the stories of survivors, while developing musical concepts along the way. The unique creative process behind Omoiyari has been documented in a film scheduled for release in early 2020. "I didn't want this project to be about history, but rather the importance of history, and the lessons we can learn," Kishi Bashi reflects. "I gravitated toward themes of empathy, compassion, and understanding as a way to overcome fear and intolerance. But I had trouble finding an English title for the piece. Omoiyari is a Japanese word. It doesn't necessarily translate as empathy, but it refers to the idea of creating compassion towards other people by thinking about them. I think the idea of omoiyari is the single biggest thing that can help us overcome aggression and conflict." The strong conceptual elements of Omoiyari are driven by Kishi Bashi's captivating musical score. Stepping away from his past loop-based production model, he embraced a more collaborative approach when recording, and for the first time included contributions from other musicians, such as Mike Savino (aka Tall Tall Trees) on banjo and bass, and Nick Ogawa (aka Takenobu) on cello. Kishi Bashi's spectacular trademark violin soundscapes are still an essential component of his sound, but the focus of Omoiyari is centered squarely on it's songs. While the theme of Omoiyari is rooted in 1940s America, the album's message is timeless. In exploring the emotional lives of the innocent Japanese-Americans who were unjustly incarcerated, Kishi Bashi hopes to nurture a sense of empathy, or omoiyari, in all who hear the album.

Doug Seegers - A Story I Got To Tell [LP] A Story I Got To Tell [LP]

After years of struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, the then 62 year old homeless Nashville street musician Doug Seegers’ life changed overnight. A hit song catapulted him to superstar status in Sweden and since then he's played hundreds of sold out shows. And in the spring of 2018, Doug Seegers recorded his first international album in Los Angeles with master producer Joe Henry - the result is the much anticipated emotional eleven-songs album "A Story I Got to Tell” which is to be released on May 31st 2019.

Pip Blom - Boat [LP] Boat [LP]

Growing up intensely shy, 22-year-old Pip Blom was uncharacteristically plunged into the limelight during her teens when she answered an advertisement for a songwriting competition and reached the semifinals. Failing to win was anything but a deterrent and neither was struggling to find band members post-competition. Pip simply plowed on, programing drums on a computer and writing and recording both bass and guitar parts. She decided to start self-releasing songs on the internet and it didn't take long for people to start taking notice. Today, that same plucky, head-on attitude characterizes everything she does, whether that's witnessing her band's powerfully impressive live show or listening to her honest, heart-on-sleeve approach to writing songs on record. Boat is an an open book of Pip Blom, delivered via her undeniable knack for writing a hook-laden, 3-4 minute song and planting it in your head on a loop for days.


Pip Blom $19.99
Fleshtones - Layin' Pipe / Lady Nightshade [Limited Edition Vinyl Single] Layin' Pipe / Lady Nightshade [Limited Edition Vinyl Single]

In a career that spans over four decades, garage rock superheroes The Fleshtones truly have done it all. Theyre one of the final remaining original CBGB bands, theyve played on Andy Warhols short-lived MTV show while Sir Ian McKellen read Shakespeare over their jamming, and were the last band to publicly perform at the World Trade Centers Windows on the World. However, whats most incredible about The Fleshtones is that theyre putting out some of their best music yet forty years into their career, as evidenced by their brand new limited edition 45 single Layin Pipe b/w Lady Nightshade. Layin Pipe is a cover of the great Canadian blues rocker David Wilcox, but the track gets a garage rock facelift from The Fleshtones, complete with howls from Keith Streng and a leading vocal performance by The Count Peter Zaremba. Lady Nightshade is a rollicking original by The Fleshtones, featuring some haunting guitars licks and various spellbinding chants throughout the chorus.


Fleshtones $9.98
Frank Iero - Barriers [LP] Barriers [LP]

For Frank Iero, making music has always been a coping mechanism. But it's also much more than just a way of dealing with the hardships of life it's a means of stepping back to take in the hurricane that is life, both in all its glory and devastation and acknowledging the things you could, and maybe should, have done differently. 'People like to say 'I live my life without any regrets,' and I think that's bulls**t,' he says. 'I think that if you don't have any regrets then maybe you didn't really live. Life is about mistakes and life is about scars and those are the things that help us remember that we re alive. You shouldn't get everything right you should know what it feels like to feel sorry.' Regret flows through Barriers, Iero's third solo record, more than anything he's ever made before. Made with his new band, The Future Violents, and recorded and mixed by Steve Albini, it's an album that directly and deliberately challenges the doubts that plague us, whether on a trivial, everyday basis or a more meaningful level. To that extent, its fourteen songs are much more than a deeply existential journey into his heart and mind. They also reinvent who he is as a musician and tackle head-on the fundamental question of what it means to actually be alive, to be human.


Frank Iero $26.98 Digital: $9.99
Justin Rutledge - Passages [LP] Passages [LP]

Juno Award winning artist, Justin Rutledge returns with his new album, Passages.

The Gotobeds - Debt Begins At 30 [LP] Debt Begins At 30 [LP]

Give me a minute or three to extol the virtues of The Gotobeds, the modern rock and roll sensation that has always sounded like they love to play. Never maligned by having the world’s weight on their backs, The Gotobeds - Cary, TFP, Eli and Gavin - return to the fray with their third full lengther, Debt Begins at 30. The esprit de corps and anxiety-free joy that permeates their other LPs and EPs remains intact. The octane is high-test, the engine still has knocks and pings and the battery is overcharged. The Gotobeds - as Pittsburgh as it gets, the folk music of the Steel City - have more tar for us to swallow. Debt Begins at 30 is an old-fashioned blast furnace and the liquid iron flows. Debt Begins at 30 is not "pub sop" in any way or shape. Though I never considered The Gotobeds a band that needed assistance from their peers, Debt Begins at 30 features outside contributors on every track. The album's first single, "Calquer The Hound," includes local buddy Evan Richards, and Rob Henry of Kim Phuc. "Calquer The Hound" has euphony, a sly bridge, plenty of trademark bash, and a spacey outro. It's a sanguine album opener, more Al Oliver than Starling Marte. On "Twin Cities," the lads tap Tracy Wilson, formerly of Dahlia Seed and currently of Positive NO!, to share the vox, and the result is an exuberant pop song proving The Gotobeds benefit from women ruling the scene. "Twin Cities" is more Dakota Staton than Don Caballero. "Debt Begins at 30," the title trackular, includes the wizardry of Mike Seamans and legend Bob Weston. It's a brooding romp with tribal beats and slash-and-burn guitar, more Rocky Bleier than Le'Veon Bell. Unsurprisingly, The Gotobeds called partners-in-rock-crime Protomartyr a coupla times, with Joe Casey bolstering "Slang Words" and hook-fiend Greg Ahee shredding on "On Loan." "Slang Words" is a savory wrecking ball with a crunching bite, more of a soft shell crab sandwich from Wholey's Market than a 4am slop feast at Primanti Brothers. "On Loan" is an anthemic jangle-fest with high-arcing fret work, more Karl Hendricks (rest his soul) than "Weird Paul" Petroskey. Silkworm guitarist Tim Midyett is tapped on "Parallel," a grand song that enters a world of whimsy, melodic and uncomplicated, more Jaromir Jagr than Sidney Crosby. The likes of 12XU label boss Gerard Cosloy, Tre Orsi's Matt Barnhart, the wonderful Victoria Ruiz of Downtown Boys, Pittsburgh wordsmiths Jason Baldinger and Scott MacIntyre, and yours truly strut stuff on other tracks. In my case, I just scream “dross” on "Dross" several times. Good judgment on the part of The Gotobeds to know that's the best I can do, more Max Moroff than Andrew McCutchen. Anyways, The Gotobeds have quickly reached the veteran stage, but, based upon Debt Begins at 30, their best days are ahead of them. It's a pleasure to be associated with such an excellent band. --Bob Nastanovich, 1/13/2019, Des Moines

1914 - The Blind Leading The Blind The Blind Leading The Blind

Metal with WWI lyrics is a traditional affair – especially in the extreme metal sector where bands such as Endstille, God Dethroned or Hail of Bullets set the bar high. But none of them took the matter as seriously (visually too!) as 1914! The Ukrainian act mixes blackened, massive death metal with audio drama soundscapes and disquieting melodies, and tunes like ‘A7V Mephisto‘ bring in the majestic doom factor. The Blind Leading The Blind towers over the listener with dense atmosphere and technical supremacy and even has a surprise up its sleeve in shape of the blackened punk cover version of The Exploited`s ‘Beat the bastards‘. A future genre classic!


1914 $14.98
Gloryhammer - Legends From Beyond The Galactic Terrorvortex [2LP] Legends From Beyond The Galactic Terrorvortex [2LP]

Mighty warriors of the galaxy, the time has come: Gloryhammer have forged their third longplayer! The next thrilling chapter of the heroes around mastermind Christopher Bowes (Alestorm) awaits! The spies of Emperor Zargothrax are everywhere, which is why Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex has been secretly recorded in an undisclosed location in the highlands of Scotland with producer Lasse Lammert (Alestorm). Mighty fanfares guide the listener into his journey through the Terrorvortex – and only the bravest warriors will make it out of this maelstrom, clad in triumphant power metal and epic orchestral backgrounds. Could there be a more hypnotizing and beautiful place than the gloriously symphonic ‚Land of Unicorns‘? We doubt it. FOR THE ETERNAL GLORY OF DUNDEE!


Gloryhammer $23.98 Digital: $9.99
Vader - Thy Messenger Thy Messenger

Polish extreme metal veterans VADER are pleased to announce that they will release a new EP titled "Thy Messenger" on May 31st this year. The effort will contain four of the five songs that were recorded over a week-long period in January and February at Hertz Studio in Białystok, Poland under the supervision of the Wiesławski Brothers.

A new full VADER album will be recorded later this year for a tentative autumn release.

Team Dresch - Hand Grenade + 2 [Limited Edition Clear Vinyl Single] Hand Grenade + 2 [Limited Edition Clear Vinyl Single]

Team Dresch combined the likes of punk and metal with the then-radical ideologies of sexuality and female empowerment to earn their respected place among the queercore and riot grrrl movements. Nearly three decades after forming, the works of Team Dresch have never resonated louder as the relevance of such social concerns and opinions continues to enter modern day discussion. Remastered fresh pressing of long out-of-print debut 7'' from 1994, on clear vinyl.

Death Angel - Humanicide [Limited Edition Purple/Cyan Splatter LP] Humanicide [Limited Edition Purple/Cyan Splatter LP]

Ascending from the depths, the almighty DEATH ANGEL return to offer their latest, energy fueled masterpiece: “Humanicide.” A return to the wolves alongside a survivalist pack mentality are what fuel the powerful themes erupting from these fresh metal anthems. In a modern capitalist society where selfishness reigns and communal help and survival are things of the past, Death Angel produces sounds and symbols that point out the truths of attempting to exist safely in the present day. The title itself describes a plain in which humans, after generations of violence, regression, and hate, have finally extinguished themselves into dust. The wasteland they left behind is populated only by those creatures that passionately depend on their pack for survival: The Wolves. Gnashing their teeth and struggling to survive in an abandoned world, the wolves are back and galloping fiercely across the cover of the album. Adorned in the war skins of their enemies and the creatures they’ve killed together in order to survive, the powerful messages of the songs can be seen in Brent Elliott White’s fantastic piece of art.


Death Angel $32.98 Digital: $9.99
Royal Republic - Club Majesty Club Majesty

ROYAL REPUBLIC don’t believe in ‘guilty pleasures’ – only pleasures, free of compromise. Since meeting at the Malmö Academy Of Music in 2007, they’ve become Sweden’s most addictive rock’n’roll export; mixing riffy guitars, king-sized tunes and jet-packed beats with their own eclectic tastes and inimitable joie de vivre. Plus the kind of snazzy suits most of their contemporaries wish they had the balls to pull off. They’ll rock the s**t out of you and make you dance like you’ve just won the lottery. Now, with the arrival of fourth album “Club Majesty”, ‘disco rock’ has been added to the mix.


Royal Republic $12.98 Digital: $9.99

Juan Wauters - Introducing Juan Pablo [LP] Introducing Juan Pablo [LP]

The pleasure of finding something new in what we already know. The strange face of someone close. The outsider we all carry inside. The unex-plored path in our usual location. A secret, a hiding place, a surprise. This is what Juan Pablo brings us. He's the persona that Juan Wauters embodies to tell another side of his story. Not long ago, Wauters released La Onda de Juan Pablo, an album that allowed him to reinvent himself and start writing a separate chapter in his exciting career. Now, as a companion and as a prequel, he releases Introducing Juan Pablo. La Onda de Juan Pablo was a travelogue of sorts, with it's anthropologi-cal efforts, it's parade of Latin American musicians and it's choice to only feature Wauters native tongue. Introducing Juan Pablo, on the other hand, goes back and forth between Spanish and English. It is, in short, more faith-ful to the interculturalism that Wauters experiences daily. "In my house, among my family, we speak in Spanish. But outside in the neighborhood, we speak in English with my friends. Several of them speak in Spanish with their parents, but not all. It doesn't cause me any trouble to go from one language to another. I can express myself in the same way: everything is music." In a nod to both his home country and his adopted home, he in-cludes an English version of "El Hombre de la Calle" ("The Man on the Street") by Jaime Roos, one of the most popular Uruguayan songwriters. The references to the land where he was born are here on the surface. Between the first track ("Super Talking") and the last ("Greetings"), songs run in both languages, culminating with "Lora", which opens like a pop ka-leidoscope and ends in a kind of cosmic brotherhood between Eduardo Mateo and Syd Barrett. His immigrant's side. His sense of belonging. His social life and his use of language. His need to work. And the even stronger need that his work doesn't become monotonous. His dream of another possible world: a world where all worlds fit. Juan Wauters went through all this to introduce us to Juan Pablo. They are the same person: one among the whole crowd.


Juan Wauters $18.99
Apex Manor - Heartbreak City [Red LP] Heartbreak City [Red LP]

Requiring less than two weeks of studio time to complete, it's accurate to say that Apex Manor's Heartbreak City was captured more than it was recorded due to the "everybody in the same room" live sessions featuring songwriter Ross Flournoy on guitar and vocals, Dan Allaire (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) on drums, and Rob Barbato on bass and production duties. The raucous result is a sonic spectacle that cleverly balances aggressive Dinosaur Jr.-esque guitars with dreamy synth work that's reminiscent of The Cure, all mixed together with spirited instrumental performances, nuanced melodicism, and lyrics that swing wildly between being cryptic and being profound. In short, it's everything there is to love about early '90s pre-commercialized alternative rock but with a refreshingly modern absence of pretense or nostalgia.


Apex Manor $19.99
Gaahls Wyrd - Gastir Ghosts Invited [LP] Gastir Ghosts Invited [LP]

The infamous Gaahl (ex-GORGOROTH, WARDRUNA) is a grim and imposing personification of black metal's iconoclasm. Now he returns with his new band Gaahls WYRD and their massive debut album 'GastiR – Ghosts Invited'.

Borne out of a project honoring the legacy of his first band TRELLDOM , Gaahls WYRD continues on the left hand path that has defined his music for 25 years. As "From the Spear", "Ghosts Invited", and the epic "Carving the Voices" illustrate, his ghastly vocals are the cutting edge of a full-strength assault of pure Norwegian black metal. Gaahls WYRD are one of the best new metal bands to arise in the last decade, and 'GastiR – Ghosts Invited' is a towering monument of black metal malevolence and majesty.


Gaahls Wyrd $23.98 Digital: $7.99
Texas Hippie Coalition - High In The Saddle [LP] High In The Saddle [LP]

Backyard barbeques, barroom brawls, tent revivals, and big rock festivals alike are suitable environments for the Red Dirt Metal of TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION, a band with a sound so devilishly electrifying that they had to come up with a new genre to describe it. High in the Saddle is a record full of unashamed, full-throttle ass kicking. It’s the band’s second pairing with producer Bob Marlette (Black Stone Cherry, Rob Zombie) and sixth album over all, on the heels of the No. 2 Billboard Heatseekers slab, Dark Side of Black.

Sinkane - Depayse [LP] Depayse [LP]

Sinkane is unique in that he is one of few artists that has a real, tangible stake in our current cultural and political climate, and it shows in the music. For the new album Dépaysé (a French word meaning to be removed from ones habitual surroundings.) Ahmed Gallab didnt just write a few protest songs in the style of the familiar Sinkane sound. Rather, you can FEEL the difference, the change that has taken place in the art. The falsetto of the earlier records is almost entirely gone in favor of an aggressive, clearly stated tenor. There is almost nothing in the lyrics that is ambiguous or even difficult to understand, and even the musics poppier moments are confrontational and bombastic. And while the new album is reflective of what the band has become musically, a wild raging force to be reckoned with live, it is at its heart about what real frustration feels like and what real change could require. It is by far the most personal, direct, unfiltered and raw Sinkane album.


Sinkane $22.98
David Hillyard & The Rocksteady 7 - Playtime [LP] Playtime [LP]
