Radiohead return with their highly anticipated ninth studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool, featuring “Burn The Witch,” “Daydreaming” and “True Love Waits.” The album is available on CD, Vinyl and an Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Opaque White Vinyl. "Only now does it seem like Radiohead, a group too big to break up, could call it quits after pouring everything into their music, ending with a record of personal exhaust examined through leisurely means." - Consequence Of Sound
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS - The Getaway - Warner Bros.
The Getaway is the 11th full-length studio release for Red Hot Chili Peppers and was produced by Danger Mouse. Features the singles "The Getaway" and "We Turn Red." "The Getaway proves not only that the longtime rockers still sizzle 30 years in, but also are capable of victoriously revamping their sound." - USA Today
CASE/LANG/VEIRS - Case/Lang/Veirs - Anti
Case/Lang/Veirs, a true collaboration between three phenomenal, self-driven artists: avant-rock icon Neko Case, legendary musical nomad k.d. Lang, and indie folk star Laura Veirs. The women wrote all 14 songs and shared lead vocals equally, sometimes even within the same track. Full of stunning harmonies and spellbinding rhythms, case/lang/veirs travels through aches and eras, torch songs and tributes to the undersung. Vinyl available 7/14
JON PARDI - California Sunrise - Capitol Nashville
Capitol Records Nashville's Jon Pardi releases his highly-anticipated sophomore album, California Sunrise, on June 17. The album's lead single, Head Over Boots, is a swinging, mid-tempo tune and immediately connects with fans and gives a taste of what to expect from the California native's upcoming second studio album. Pardi is often commended for sticking to his traditional country roots. "I always want to have the traditional country soul while meeting the new standards of country music," explains Pardi. California Sunrise is the follow-up to Pardi's celebrated debut album, Write You A Song, featuring his Gold-selling Top 10 hit, "Up All Night."
MOGWAI - Atomic - Temporary Residence
Atomic, the new album by Scottish experimental rock legends Mogwai, is composed of reworked versions of the music recorded for the soundtrack to director Mark Cousins' acclaimed documentary Atomic: Living In Dread and Promise, which first aired on BBC Four last summer. Constructed entirely of archive film, Atomic is an impressionistic kaleidoscope of the horrors of our nuclear times - protest marches, Cold War sabre-rattling, Chernobyl and Fukishima - but also the sublime beauty of the atomic world, and how x-rays and MRI scans have improved human lives.
MUMFORD & SONS - Johannesburg EP - Glassnote
Mumford & Sons release their new set of recordings entitled Johannesburg, made with Baaba Maal, Beatenberg and The Very Best. The songs were recorded in Studio 2 and the Auditorium of the South African Broadcasting Corporation, Johannesburg in February over two all-day and all-night sessions and produced by Mumford & Sons and The Very Best's Swedish electronic music maestro, Johan Hugo.
