    Easy Eye

    During the recording of Anderson’s 2020 album Years, Dan Auerbach hatched the idea of a tribute to the genius of the country legend. The herculean talents of everyone from Luke Combs to John Prine, from Eric Church to Tyler Childers, Nathaniel Rateliff to Gillian Welch & David Rawlings and many more all came together to pay tribute to John and his remarkable contributions in this stunning album. *Low Dog Blue LP*

    Metal Blade

    The Swedish melodic death metal stalwart’s trademark sound undergoes yet another evolutionary overhaul. From the noisily rabble-rousing "Find A Way Or Make One" and the pummeling, pugilistic "Get In The Ring", to the evocative fury of "Saxons & Vikings," The Great Heathen Army encapsulates the essence of this legendary band, while still allowing acres of space for new ideas. *Triple Gatefold Blue/Black Marble LP*

The follow up to 2018’s As The Kingdom Drowns is on the horizon, and Divine Council sees the Australian band ready to push their creative boundaries in new ways as part of their ethos to always keep things fresh - both for themselves and their listeners. *Blue/Green/White/Clear LP*

    Epitaph

    Gliding across a spectrum of breathless punk rock, doo-wop, gospel, dancehall, and the band’s customary nods to the lineage of two-tone, this 14-track opus is a band rejecting the easy impulses of simply repeating what’s worked before. Featuring guests Tim Armstrong, Rhoda Dakar, Hepcat, and The Skints. *Ltd. Ed. Opaque Aqua Blue LP*

    Under Construction, Part II served as the follow-up to Missy Elliot's album of the same name. With Timbaland handling a majority of the production, the album boasts the large and flamboyant beats that we've come to expect from Timbaland as one of the top producers of his time. The album features appearances from longtime collaborators such as Missy Elliot and Sebastian, as well as notable names such as Brandy, Wyclef Jean, and Bubba Sparxxx.

    Virgin

    Honesty, nostalgia and inner-light are at core of Lauv’s sophomore album. As humans, we tend to shy away from the darkness and spotlight the good, but acceptance and courage is what takes us beyond the horizon and gives us all the strength to move forward. All 4 Nothing sees the hit maker at his highest and lowest with no pretend while bringing his ultra-modern pop beats and snappy lyrical pairings.

    Neil Young + Promise of the Real - Noise and Flowers

    Neil Young + Promise of the Real - Noise and Flowers - Reprise
    Neil Young + Promise of the Real release a new live album, Noise and Flowers, that captures the group in all their glory on their 2019 European tour. The release is accompanied by a similarly titled concert film that’s included in the album’s 2xLP+CD Deluxe Edition. Noise & Flowers documents a 9-date tour that began just two weeks after Young’s lifetime friend and manager of more than 50 years, Elliot Roberts, passed away at age 76. Performing alongside a photograph of Roberts taped to his road case, Young approached each show as a celebratory memorial service to honor his late friend. It’s a trek the legendary singer/songwriter describes as “wondrous.”

    The Interrupters - In The Wild

    The Interrupters - In The Wild - Hellcat Records
    After three studio albums and over a decade deep into the music game, The Interrupters deliver their new album, In The Wild. This 14-track opus is the real deal; it’s a story of survival, a story of resilience, by a band being bold and rejecting the easy impulses of simply repeating what’s worked before. Together during lockdown, Aimee Interrupter, partner and guitarist Kevin Bivona, and his younger twin brothers, Jesse (drums) and Justin (bass), decided to put idle hands to work. After building a home studio in their garage together, Kevin stepped up and took charge of production duties to become “the accountable one” this time around. The record took shape in an unforced and organic fashion, and the recording process was evidently a fun one, which is reflected in the sound of the album, gliding across a spectrum of breathless punk rock, doo-wop, gospel, dancehall, and the band’s customary nods to the lineage of two-tone. It’s further evidenced in the uplifting spirit and the glittering rollcall of guests (Tim Armstrong, Rhoda Dakar, Hepcat, The Skints) involved too. Thanks to the cocoon of the intimate environment they’d built and relaxed working practices, the results made for the most personal Interrupters album to date, as well as being the one all four feel most connected to.

    Rich Ruth - I Survived, It's Over - Third Man Records
    Recorded under a loft bed in the guest bedroom of his Nashville home, Michael Ruth aka Rich Ruth’s “I Survived, It's Over” starts in a humble space. And while many contemporary music projects are produced in such an environment, “I Survived, It’s Over” sets itself apart in its transformative properties as well as its transparency. What we have here is honest sound exploration, session musician-level instrumentation, and a true love for nature run through the fingers of a dude who can channel some acute and undeniable magic. This music goes deep.

    Capitol

    Rogers' voice is unfettered, cascading — running wild like the animals in her single “Horses” — and soars deliriously sometimes to the point of almost cracking. From the bubblegum pop of “Want Want” to the soaring ballad "Begging For Rain," Surrender consistently sparkles, with contributions from Florence Welch, Jon Batiste and Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett. *Ltd. Ed. Tangerine Orange LP*

    Republic

    In its slowest moments, Eddie embraces the paths of the elders before him, jumping into Americana and blues. At other times, the music is more familiar, writhing with the intensity that made its maker famous. Even then, however, Vedder assures us he’s moving forward, dressing his rock songs with all the fixings of modern production. In doing so, Earthling plants itself firmly in this moment. *Ltd. Ed. Blue/Black Marble LP*

    Century Media

    The masters of the Brazilian old school death metal Krisiun are back. After their last album, 2018’s Scourge of the Enthroned, the three Sao Paulo brothers deliver another board-hard and incredibly strong new studio album. On Mortem Solis, Krisiun convince with precise riffs and hard-hitting sound with the active support of Mark Lewis (production and mix).

    GRAMMY and Americana Award-winning singer/songwriter and violinist, Amanda Shires, has pushed the reset button with Take It Like a Man, a record that is so unlike anything she has ever recorded that you would be tempted to think it was her debut album instead of her seventh. Shires, brings forth a fearless confessional, showing the world what turning 40 looks like in 10 emotionally raw tracks. *Ltd. Ed. White LP*

    Merge

    The vital new album and Merge debut of Friendship, the Philly-via-Maine outfit led by accomplished songwriter Dan Wriggins.

    Six Shooter Records

    Carter Family meets Addams Family. Rich with quality finger picking and replete with harmonies, Easy Listening for Jerks offers many new moods of songs we think we know so well. Under a title that recalls the songwriting humour of Roger Miller and Steve Martin’s comedy stylings alike, the EPs offer a surprising and compelling mix of gravity and levity. Foggy Mountain Boys, but make it Beetlejuice.

    Rise

    Rejecting tired formulas at every step, Dance Gavin Dance merge progressive rock and post-hardcore with thick groove, brilliantly combining experimental music with hooks and a warped sense of humor. On Jackpot Juice, the seminal “swancore” outfit have crafted their most electrifying, consistent and varied release to date. *Ltd. Ed. Yellow, Red & Black Splatter LP*

    Thirty Tigers

    With this authoritative and impressive album, Whiskey Myers (Rolling Stone’s declared “new torch bearers for Southern music”) once again succeeds in working within the confines of Southern rock. The band pushes those limited borders wider with creativity and faith in their own substantial talents. With Tornillo, their recent burst of crossover popularity should be set to last. *Ltd. Ed.

    Concord

    Dawes have crafted one their shortest and tightest albums to date with Misadventures of Doomscroller, and it also happens to be one of their most enjoyably experimental. It's a vibe that evokes the proggy 1970s style of Steely Dan without losing any of the emotive, singer/songwriter pathos that marked the best of their past work. These feral dogs have set sail for jam island. *Ltd. Ed. Translucent Blood Orange LP*

    Thirty Tigers

    A compelling blend of acoustic folk and avant-garde pop playfulness, Birds in the Ceiling lives confidently in a space of its own, enriched by tradition but never encumbered by it. The songwriting that has stunned fans and critics alike since 2015’s High on Tulsa Heat remains potent, while the sonic evolution that unfolds on the record feels like a natural expansion of 2020’s acclaimed LP5. *Ltd.

    Rapper, producer, actor, and filmmaker RZA brings back his alter ego, Bobby Digital for a brand new graphic novel and soundtrack, RZA Presents: Bobby Digital and the Pit of Snakes, both released this month. The soundtrack merges hip hop, indie rock, and soul to complement and highlight the graphic novel’s storyline – as much poetry as rap, as much philosophy as sci-fi odyssey.

    Century Media

    On Spirit of Ecstasy, the avant-garde metal trio manages to surpass their already brilliant long player Alphaville. It’s rife with shrieking black metal, polyrhythmic shifts, deliberately obtuse jazz patterns and anything else that grabs their passing fancy. Traditional songs are in short supply, but eerie soundscapes and clashing, challenging slabs of noise they have in abundance.

    alt_text
    Chrysalis

    This fearless and immensely soulful work was largely inspired by the loss of a longtime friend and the lingering influence of a mercurial and charismatic father. It’s soul music, but never a stylistic tribute to some bygone era. Less a direct influence than the applying of hip-hop's inventiveness to longstanding paradigms of soul, blues and jazz, spinning it all forward into a reconfiguration of a new black Americana. *Vinyl out 9/30*

    alt_text
    New West

    Regarded as the first album where Tony Joe controlled all elements, The Beginning is stripped down and recorded without any bells and whistles. This is Tony Joe recording himself playing his classic swamp blues sound. Long out of print, New West Records remastered, re-sequenced and, due to popular demand, is now reissuing the album on CD and Limited Edition Indie Exclusive Blue Vinyl.

    Whiskey Myers - Tornillo

    Whiskey Myers - Tornillo - Wiggy Thunp Records
    For genre-bending band Whiskey Myers, 2019’s self-titled and self-produced album offered a watershed moment. With Rolling Stone declaring them “the new torch bearers for Southern music” in a story titled “How Whiskey Myers Won Over Mick Jagger and Made the Album of Their Career;” and the project debuting atop both the Country and Americana album charts, the band celebrated mainstream success a decade in the making.  Now, after spending 21 days isolated at the 2,300-acre Sonic Ranch studio deep in the heart of their native Texas, just miles from the U.S./Mexico border, the Gold-certified renegades have doubled down on what they do best: sharing honest truths with no-holds-barred instrumentation, letting the self-produced music speak for itself. Yet with Tornillo, named for the border town that is home to the pecan orchard-filled recording complex and released this week via their own Wiggy Thump Records with distribution by Thirty Tigers, the six-piece band has taken their solid decade-plus foundation and pushed themself to further explore new sonic landscapes.

    New England indie folk duo The Ballroom Thievess continue to write and share music at a feverish pace with their release of their upcoming album Clouds, the album encapsulates the duo's longing to return to touring, but also a reflection of it's difficulties (insomnia brought on by sleeping in different hotel rooms every night). Clouds gives listeners an intimate look into the band's recording process as most of the album's songs began with Martin Earley and Calin Peters writing together. And for the first time, the album features songs recorded live in the hope of bringing fans directly into the room.

    Metric Music International

    Metric’s newest collection of electro-indie drags you from the abyss that is our current day-to-day, acknowledging the fragile fate of life whilst encouraging you to appreciate the here and now. It’s dark and claustrophobic, but dreamy and imaginative with grand, cinematic synth arrangements. Lead singer Emily Haines describes it as, “an escape for yourself in your mind because you're powerless over so many things."

    Something's happening in country music. Newer artists and younger audiences are embracing instrumentation, vocal stylings and song structures long thought drowned in the ocean of slick, snap-track productions. Kimberly Kelly's debut album may prove to be the clarion call. "I like to think of it as a sub-genre of country music called 'country music,'" Kelly says with a wink.

    New West

    Ways & Means finds the New Orleans five-piece leaning on the country-folk of their debut along with the psychedelic, electrified gospel-soul sound of 2016’s Hurry Home. The sound will continue to draw comparisons to the country-funkiness of The Band, Link Wray and others but this is the sound of a band that understands the history of American music, while embracing their own contemporary approach.

To support her vision Sophie enlisted producer Daniel Lopatin, whose recent credits include the Uncut Gems movie score and The Weeknd’s Dawn FM.

    From the Brazilian standards that her family listened to while driving to the beach, to the European folk traditions she tapped into on her own, and the pursuits that interest her today – studies in archaeology, work as a gardener, and walking the world’s great trails – Naima’s music draws from family, the earth and music handed down through generations.

    Nicki Bluhm, the native San Franciscan who now calls Tennessee home, possesses a gorgeously emotive voice and her clear-eyed perspective on life informs the 10 tracks on Avondale Drive. Combining nostalgic country-rock with distinctly modern lyricism, Bluhm brings apt contrast for the process of studying one's past in order to make a better future.

    There’s a sense of optimistic yearning here, from the dreamy opener "Wonderment," to her ode to a broken heart, "Curiosity," to the pulsing promise of "Hope.
