>Ducktails – St. Catherine CD/LP+MP3 (Domino)
The latest album by the solo project of Real Estate's Matt Mondanile is filled with his baroque pop flourishes and layered with his soothing, but sharp vocals. Recorded in Los Angeles and Berlin and mixed by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, FIDLAR),
St. Catherine is a complex, moody work filled with yearning and lots of the gorgeous melodic fretwork for which Mondanile has become well known for with his work in Real Estate.

>Titus Andronicus – The Lost Lamentable Tragedy 2xCD/3xLP+MP3 (Merge)
The Most Lamentable Tragedy is the fourth studio album by Titus Andronicus, and is a rock opera in five acts. The central narrative of TMLT ("a work of fiction," claims singer/songwriter Patrick Stickles) concerns an unnamed protagonist whom we meet in deep despair. Following an encounter with his own doppelgänger (an enigmatic stranger, identical in appearance though opposite in disposition), long held secrets are revealed, sending our protagonist on a transformative odyssey, through past lives and new loves, to the shocking revelation that the very thing that sustains him may be the thing to destroy him.

>Albert Hammond Jr. - Momentary Masters CD/LP (Vagrant)
The third solo album from The Strokes' guitarist. "The 35-year-old's music, however, has always revealed a more thoughtful, sensitive soul. Hammond's third solo album takes its title from Carl Sagan's
Pale Blue Dot, a book about mankind's place in the universe and our potential to transcend it, while thematically, he's been talking up the influence of the confessional poet Anne Sexton on his lyric writing. His previous albums, 2006's Yours To Keep and 2008's ¿Cómo Te Llama? have shown a knack for sweet, lovingly-crafted, mid-fi pop songs, some of which are good enough to make you wonder if the next Strokes album could be that long-awaited rival to Is This It. Realistically, The Strokes seem to be moving further away from what Hammond does, and that's a shame, because on this evidence, he's getting better and better at it." – NME

>Air – Moon Safari [Reissue/1998] LP (Rhino/Parlophone)
French postmodernists Air raid every aspect of retro pop music, from the sublime to the ridiculous, in fashioning their sonic bricolage. Everything from Krautrock-inspired electronics to 1960s lounge music is incorporated into the work of Nicolas Godin and J.B. Dunckel. Their full-length debut, 1998's
Moon Safari, earned massive critical plaudits and put the duo at the forefront of modern, electronic-oriented pop.

>Parliament – Mothership Connection [Reissue/1975] LP (UMe)

Part of the Respect The Classics vinyl reissue campaign, this repress features a limited edition lenticular 3D cover.
