Ariana Grande - Sweetener|
New CD: $14.99
Sweetener is the fourth album from Ariana Grande, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi platinum, record-breaking superstar that has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. The album features the number 1 smash 'no tears left to cry,' as well as 'the light is coming (feat. Nicki Minaj)' and 'God is a woman.' With the release of 'no tears left to cry,' she became the first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first four albums debut in the Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. By the age of 24, Ariana Grande delivered three platinum-selling albums in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Since making her full-length debut with 2013's Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash 'The Way'), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Her 2014 sophomore effort My Everything garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits 'Problem' and 'Bang Bang' (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of 2016's Dangerous Woman and wrapped up her widely lauded 'Dangerous Woman Tour' in support of the album in 2017, performing 85 arena shows worldwide. Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize). She has also graced the prestigious magazine covers of TIME s Next Generation Leaders, FADER, and British Vogue.

Thee Oh Sees - Smote Reverser [LP]|
New Vinyl: $25.99
Double vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. Crack the coffers, Oh Sees have spawned another frothy album of head-destroying psych-epics to grok and rock out to. Notice the fresh dollop of organ and keyboard prowess courtesy of Memory Of A Cut Off Head-alum and noted key-stabber Tom Dolas, while the Paul Quattrone/Dan Rincon drum-corps polyrhythmic pulse continues to astound and pound in equal measure, buttressed by the nimble fingered bottom end of Sir Tim Hellman the Brave and the shred-heaven fret frying of John Dwyer, whilst Lady Brigid Dawson again graces the wax with her harmonic gifts. Aside from the familiar psych-scorch familiar to soggy pit denizens the world over, there's a fresh heavy-prog vibe that fits like a worn-in jean jacket comfortably among hairpin metal turns and the familiar but no less horns-worthy guitar fireworks Dwyer's made his calling card. Perhaps the most notable thing about Smote Reverser is the artistic restlessness underpinning it's flights of fancy. Dwyer refuses to repeat himself and for someone with such a hectic release schedule, that stretching of aesthetic borders and omnivorous appetite seems all the more superhuman!
Mitski - Be The Cowboy [LP]|
New Vinyl: $21.98
The breakout success of 2016’s Puberty 2 saw Mitski hailed as the new vanguard of indie rock, the one to save the genre from the white dudes who’ve historically dominated it. But the often overlooked aspect of being a rising star is the sheer amount of work that goes into it. “I had been on the road for a long time, which is so isolating, and had to run my own business at the same time,” Mitski explains, “a lot of this record was me not having any feelings, being completely spent, but then trying to rally myself and wake up and get back to Mitski. I was feeling really nihilistic and trying to make pop songs.” We want our artists to be strong but we also expect them to be vulnerable. Rather than avoiding this dilemma, she addresses directly the power that comes from appearing impenetrable and loneliness that follows. “With a lot of the romantic infatuations I’ve had,” she says, “when I look back, I wonder, Did I want them or did I want to be them? Did I love them or did I want to absorb whatever power they had? I decided I could just be my own cowboy gure that I so desire.” In Be The Cowboy, Mitski delves into the loneliness of being a symbol and the loneliness of being someone, and how it can feel so much like being no one.
Circles Around The Sun - Let It Wander [2LP]|
New Vinyl: $39.99
LET IT WANDER signals a new beginning for the band as they move beyond their original musical mandate of evoking the spirit of the Dead and fully embrace their own personality. “More than anything, what you hear on this album is a band growing into its own sound,” Casal says.
The songs on LET IT WANDER are focused and filled with imaginative musical turns. Horne and Levy form a veritable groove machine that knows intuitively when to tighten up and when to stretch out. They expand and collapse the rhythmic pocket around Casal and MacDougall, who pass melodies back and forth in an elaborate game of musical tag as they take turns adding color and shade from a seemingly endless kaleidoscope of cosmic sounds.
Cole Swindell - All Of It|

Julee Cruise - The Voice Of Love [LP]|
New Vinyl: $26.98
25 years after its initial release, Julee Cruise’s sophomore album The Voice of Love will be issued for the first time on vinyl August 17 via Sacred Bones Records, and on CD for the first time since its initial pressing in 1993. It would mark the final full-length collaboration between Cruise, David Lynch, and Angelo Badalamenti. In 1994, a er the release of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Lynch, Badalamenti, and Cruise returned to the studio with new compositions as well as the intent to craft previously instrumental score-based material from Fire Walk With Me and Wild at Heart into Julee Cruise songs. The result was 1993’s final studio album The Voice of Love. “In the studio, David would always say ‘[sing] like an angel, like an angel...” Cruise remembers. In many ways, this quest for “angelic” was the seed that grew an entire genre out of the inability to utilize This Mortal Coil’s “Song to the Siren” for Blue Velvet. It’s eerie to ponder what might not have been had the song actually been within reach for that film. Fitting that all these years later, Twin Peaks concluded on a similar question followed by Cruise’s performance of “The World Spins”: What happens if Laura Palmer was never murdered?

Buck Owens - Country Singer's Prayer|
New CD: $16.98
irst-release of this previously unissued album. • Buck’s last intended album for Capitol Records in 1975. • Also features his last 2 Capitol singles, and their B-sides. • Liner notes by Scott B. Bomar featuring interviews with the co-writers of the title track. Omnivore Recordings, in conjunction with the Buck Owens Estate, is proud to present Country Singer’s Prayer—Buck Owens final Capitol album from 1975 that has remained unreleased until now. By late 1975, Buck’s unequaled success at Capitol records was finally winding down. His singles were no longer topping the charts, and after the death of Don Rich the year before, Buck was starting to lose the fire that drove him through an unprecedented run of groundbreaking hits in the ’60s and early ’70s. His contract with Capitol was due to expire at the end of the year, and he and The Buckaroos readied one final album for them in November 1975. While several of Buck’s later Capitol records had not been topping the charts as before, his last single for them, “Country Singer’s Prayer,” failed to even make a showing in the charts. Likely due to the indifference shown to that last single, the decision was made to shelf this final album, and assign the selection number to what was ultimately Buck’s last Capitol album, Best Of Buck Owens, Vol. 6 that did include his last two singles originally intended for this final album: “Battle Of New Orleans,” and the title track. While Buck did revisit some of these songs with producer Norro Wilson in Nashville after signing to Warner Bros. Records, these original recordings produced at Buck’s Bakersfield studio with The Buckaroos remained in the vault. This album is finally seeing the light of day, taken from the original LP master tapes, in what was the intended sequence. Also included are the b-sides to Buck’s final two singles from the unissued album. Including new liner notes by Scott B. Bomar featuring interviews with the co-writers of “Country Singer’s Prayer” longtime Buckaroos piano player Jim Shaw and R.J. Jones (aka Rocky Topp), this is a fascinating chance to experience Buck’s last intended Capitol album.
