SLEATER-KINNEY - NO CITIES TO LOVE, Sub Pop Records
No Cities to Love is the first album in 10 years by Sleater-Kinney (guitarist/vocalist Carrie Brownstein, vocalist/guitarist Corin Tucker, and drummer Janet Weiss), who came crashing out of the '90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk's political insight and emotional impact. Formed in Olympia, WA in 1994, Sleater-Kinney were hailed as "America's best rock band" by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006. No Cities to Love was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator John Goodmanson.

BILLY TALENT - HITS - The End Records

RYAN BINGHAM - FEAR AND SATURDAY NIGHT - Thirty Tigers
Recorded mostly live with a brand new backing band Fear And Saturday Night shows Ryan Bingham facing down his past with a poetic grace throughout. The lead single Radio is about coping with a darkness that does not want to let go, searching for a safe place to make sense of your life and the strength to stay on the right track through it all. Some of the most affecting moments on the album are in the harmonica-driven wistful waltz Broken Heart Tattoos, a song written to an unborn child, and in the title track, Fear and Saturday Night. Those hard-learned lessons, through both good times and bad, helped make Bingham the man he is today. Fear And Saturday Night is the most authentic, personal, and deeply moving portrait of that man we have heard yet.

After working with Burnett numerous times—most recently on the soundtrack for the Joel and Ethan Coen film Inside Llewyn Davis and the related Town Hall/Showtime concert Another Day, Another Time—Punch Brothers decided to join forces with the multiple Grammy Award–winning producer for their new record. Last summer, the band and Burnett spent a month at Hollywood’s Ocean Way Recording laying down the songs that guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjo player Noam Pikelny, mandolinist and lead singer Chris Thile, and fiddler Gabe Witcher had written during several writing “retreats” last winter and spring.

Formed in Melbourne in late 2008, Twerps enjoyed immediate success, releasing a series of vinyl singles and cassettes on various labels around the world. The release of their 2011 self-titled debut album led to appearances at SXSW and CMJ and tours with Real Estate, Mac DeMarco, and others.

Limited virgin vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Little introduction should be required here. Let it suffice to say that BEE THOUSAND is arguably the best, or at least among the top Guided By Voices albums in a copious discography. Accordingly, the album has stacked up accolades over the years, including being voted #1 on Amazon.com's 100 Greatest Indie Rock Albums of All Time. It's a staple of such lists, and has also placed highly on those curated by Spin, Pitchfork, Mojo and Rolling Stone. This vinyl LP pressing, the first since the late '90s, honors the album's 20th anniversary. It features new (and definitely improved) mastering from John Golden, a substantial gatefold jacket with a previously unpublished Robert Pollard collage, and high-quality virgin vinyl from RTI.

INTERLUDE marks a rare focus upon largely straight-ahead jazz and a return to interpretation from an artist who has made a habit of bending genres, writing original material and bringing new sounds and new listeners to the music. Produced, Engineered & Mixed by Benedic Lamdin for Nostalgia 77 and featuring guest spots from Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter, the album repertoire choices were inspired by the music and musicians he s featured on his award-winning UK jazz radio show over the last few years and his own crate digging tendencies, the album s fifteen tracks (including 3 bonus tracks for US release) avoid cliché with a fistful of less obvious jewels from the American songbook along with a couple modern surprises.$13.99 $11.99
The newest release from Doomtree, the Minneapolis independent hip-hop collective, is called All Hands. The title nods to the nautical rally cry, 'All hands on deck', and the album stands as the most collaborative and cohesive project the crew has yet produced. The production from Cecil Otter, Lazerbeak, Paper Tiger, and P.O.S twists through 13 booming tracks, building the raw and epic soundscapes that the group has become well known for, while adding more of-the-moment musical elements and techniques for a genre-spanning effect. Sims, P.O.S, Mike Mictlan, Dessa, and Cecil Otter drive home razor-sharp cadences, hard-hitting punchlines, and monstrous choruses
In 2002, singer Alexander Wesselsky and Noel Pix (composition/keyboard, guitar, producer) founded the industrial dark-electro rock band Eisbrecher ( Icebreaker ). The self-titled debut album and follow-ups Antikörper, Sünde, and Die Hölle muss warte forged them a rabid fan base worldwide, along with media and chart attention. With the new album, entitled Schock, Alexx and Noel have delivered another masterpiece. Emotional, honest, and forthright, Eisbrecher forges delicately brutal music without compromises where heavy industrial guitar sounds, driving electro, and Alexx s distinctive vocals are clothed in beats both modern and danceable.

Anchored by the bluesy wail of electric guitars, the swell of B3 organ, and the harmonized swoon of two voices that were born to mesh. At first listen, you might call it Americana. Dig deeper, though, and you ll hear the nuances that separate The Bros. Landreth whose members didn t grow up in the American south, but rather the isolated prairie city of Winnipeg, Manitoba from their folksy friends in the Lower 48.
