New And Recent Releases...
Atmosphere - Mi Vida Local
Two years on from last album Fishing Blues, the world has changed around Atmosphere, and Mi Vida Local reflects on those changes. The easygoing collaboration between Ant and Slug has begun to feel more like the life-or-death intimacy of two men trapped together on a lifeboat.
Lindsey Buckingham - Solo Anthology: The Best Of Lindsey Buckingham
The first-ever comprehensive solo anthology by legendary guitarist, songwriter and Fleetwood Mac member. Includes album tracks, live and alternate versions.
Castlecomer - Castlecomer
Castlecomer's self titled debut is equal parts rock n' roll abandon and meticulous pop craftsmanship. Chock full of contagious, arena-ready anthems, the album conjures up its own escapist world of young love and big dreams, all fueld by explosive guitars and hypnotizing grooves.
Cat Power - Wanderer
Cat Power's stunning tenth studio album Wanderer marks a pivotal moment in Chan Marshall's life and career. In the six years since the release of Sun, she has traveled the world, given birth to a child, and split with her previous label. The result is a record that is arguable the most assured artistic statement of her career. Features guest vocals by recent tourmate Lana Del Rey.
Eric Church - Desperate Man
Desperate Man is the sixth studio album by country superstar Eric Church, leading with the single of the same name, an upbeat track co-written with Texas music mainstay Ray Wylie Hubbard.

Ron Gallo - Stardust Birthday Party
Stardust Birthday Party is the result of Ron Gallo taking a reflective look at his past and inside of himself, and his evolution upon confronting big questions for the first time.
High On Fire - Electric Messiah
High On Fire's eighth album Electric Messiah was inspired by a dream Matt Pike had about Lemmy of Motorhead, who warrant comparison for their longevity. In their twenty years, the band has forged a distinct identity of towering riffs, a propulsive rhythm section, shredding solos, and poetic lyrics.
Will Hoge - My American Dream
With an album out last August and a US and European tour complete, Will Hoge didn't really need to release a record this year. But a number of timely social and political issues weighed on Hoge, and he confronts them head on with My American Dream.

Marcus King Band - The Carolina Confessions

Lenker felt a growing need to document this particular time in her life in an intimate and immediate way, resulting in new album abysskiss.
Lil Wayne - Tha Carter V
Lil Wayne's long-delayed album captures the rapper as we wish to think of him: openhearted, word-drunk, and exhilarated by the possibilities of his own voice. Some of the tracks date back years, and others were reportedly finished only weeks ago.
Mozzy - Gangland Landlord
Gangland Landlord is the newest release from Sacramento hip-hop artist Mozzy, with appearances by Schoolboy Q, YG, Ty Dolla $ign, and many others.

Joe Strummer - 001
