The Swedish pop star explores the intricacies of her femininity on her fifth album, Dirt Femme. ďI believe masculine and feminine lives on a spectrum in all humans,Ē says Tove. There are so many more interesting nuances than most people want to accept. Songs on this album will contradict each other, will probably upset some of you, will make you want to dance, cry, fuck and drive your car really, really, fast.Ē
On their seventh album, the band pushes into some of its heaviest territory ever while also dialing in a return to the anthemic and memorable songwriting qualities that its earliest records exuded. From unrelenting rockers and mid-tempo melodic power ballads to all expansive and technically demanding progressive rockers. *Indie Exclusive Sun Yellow LP*
Producer Larry Klein pays tribute to his friend Leonard Cohen with an album that presents stunning new renditions of the legendary singer-songwriter's compositions performed by an extraordinary line-up of vocalists. The guest artists are backed by what Klein calls "a group of the most prescient and forward-looking musicians in the jazz world."
The first-ever career-spanning album from songwriter, musician, poet, novelist, and visual artist Leonard Cohen. Comprised of 17 tracks from Cohenís expansive career, this anthology features an unreleased and unforgettable live performance of ďHallelujahĒ from the 2008 Glastonbury Festival.

Plains is Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee) alongside singer-songwriter Jess Williamson, and the bandís foundation is their Southern backgrounds. Encouraging each other to plunge into these shared roots, theyíve grabbed country and shaken it. Frank and redemptive, Itís a journey of small Texas towns and wide open spaces. *Indie Exclusive Pink Clear LP*
Re-issue of the bandís 2009 beyond nu-metal album. The straight reggae of "I'll Be Ready," the bluesy rhythm of "It Can't Rain Everyday," and the (gasp!) acoustic ballad "Tell Me Why" show that this was not a memory piece or a tribute to harder days. When Angels and Serpents Dance represents the strength of one of Christian rock's greatest assets. *Limited Edition Gold LP*
Apocalypse Love is an album that emanates from a dive bar jukebox in the back of your mind; with a playlist that bends between tub thumping doom-glam, Plastic Ono singalongs, cocktail-shaken space age pop, Morricone reverberations and lo-fi outsider acoustic-punk, with mariachi horns, theremins, drum machines and harmonies filtering through the infectious melodies. *Limited Edition Violet LP*
Cry With Tears celebrates the communal nature of polyphonic singing, reasserting the primacy of female voices in the southern Balkans while revitalizing the art and connecting memories of childhood with the immediacy of daily life. Produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer, musicologist, archivist, and author Christopher C. King. *Indie Exclusive Maroon LP*
Lookman has untethered himself from any genre classifications on Ottoline. "I used to describe my music as postmodern blues," he says, "but these days I just describe it as lyrically-centred, genre-nonspecific music." Written during various lockdowns, the world's collective experience of isolation has informed large parts of the new album, thematically, but ironically it's his most collaborative to date.
Conjuring memories of first heartbreaks, small towns and cherished memories, Homecoming is the Texas bandís ninth studio album and marks their 20-year anniversary. The project is a renaissance for the band, keeping the sounds and traditions that have made them so beloved over the past two decades and delving into deeply personal topics sure to resonate with audiences around the world.
Twenty effortlessly straddles the divide between then and now, its songs casting a backwards glance at the days and years gone by, while also looking forward to the future. A collection of both brand new tracks and older ones written during the course of the band's life to date, the result is something of a paradox: this both is and isn't a new Early November record. *Indie Exclusive Pink & White Pinwheel LP*
