>Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Sex & Food CD/LP+MP3 (Jagjaguwar)
The fourth album from Ruban Nielson’s Unknown Mortal Orchestra project is a delightfully shapeshifting affair that filters these real-deal serious themes through a vibrant sonic lens that spans battered drum-machine funk, doomy and thrashing rock, and pink-hued psychedelic disco.
Stacks Image 10877
>Daniel Avery – Song For Alpha CD/2xLP (Mute)
It's enlightening to discover that Daniel Avery's second album –
Song For Alpha, the absorbing follow up to 2013's Drone Logic – was inspired largely by his transient life spent between nightclubs, flights, the passenger seats of cars and rented rooms, cementing a worldwide reputation as one of the defining techno DJs of the decade.
Stacks Image 10892
>Wye Oak – The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs CD/LP+MP3 (Merge)
Wye Oak’s fifth album pursues a litany of modern malaises, each track diligently addressing a new conflict and pinning it against walls of sound, with the song’s subject and shape inextricably and ingeniously linked. A gripping and powerful set of songs built with melodies, movement, and emotions that transcend even the best of their catalogue.
Stacks Image 10871
>Hinds – I Don’t Run CD/LP+MP3 (Mom & Pop)
Hinds' breakout debut
Leave Me Alone (2016) was an album of party anthems drenched in metaphors. Follow-up I Don't Run is the Madrid-based band's return with an honest reflection on a period that changed their lives beyond their wildest imaginations.

>DAMIEN JURADO - The Horizon Just Laughed (Black Vinyl Edition) LP
Like previous albums, The Horizon Just Laughed started with a dream – though that’s where things change, as they often do. It is Damien Jurado’s first self-produced album in a 20+ year career, more personal and more rooted than even his Maraqopa trilogy, as though after so much time on the road he’s stumbled upon his home.
The album feels like a beautiful collage — its narrative pieced together through letters and postcards, with each part contributing to its greater whole, and providing snapshots of ones journey to find a sense of place and connection to a changing world.

>KING TUFF - The Other (Rainbow Marble Vinyl Loser Edition) LP
The ten tracks that make up The Other represent a kind of psychic evolution for King Tuff. No less hooky than previous records, the new songs ditch the goofy rock-and-roll bacchanalia narratives of earlier records in favor of expansive arrangements, a diversity of instrumentation, and lyrics that straddle the fence between painful ruminations and a childlike, creative energy untarnished by cynicism.

This is the limited, "loser" vinyl pressing on RAINBOW MARBLE wax!

>COURTNEY BARNETT - Tell Me How You Really Feel (Indie Exclusive Red Edition) LP
The Grammy and Brit nominated Courtney Barnett returns with her second album - ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel.’ It follows her critically acclaimed 2015 debut album ‘Sometimes I Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit’, and a recent top 10 collaborative record, 'Lotta Sea Lice', with Kurt Vile. One of the most distinctive voices in music, Courtney is known for mixing witty observations with unflinching self-assessment - fast forward to now and although all of the cleaver turns of phrase and an eye for story telling are still there; this new collection of songs see a more serious and outwardly tone capturing the current social landscape yet still retaining moments of intimacy and warmth. As the world becomes more familiar with Courtney Barnett these songs feel comforting and emphatic yet that raw energy and the ability to make the listener think still remain.
This is the indie exclusive version, pressed on RED vinyl!

>THE SEA AND CAKE - Any Day (Indie Exclusive White Edition) LP
The Sea And Cake deliver a refreshingly intimate collection of elegantly arranged, singular pop songs. For over two decades and 11 albums, The Sea And Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate, intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies. Masters of subtlety, their compositions have continually evolved - through minute alterations in texture, unusual approaches to lyrics, and creative production choices. Any Day is testament to The Sea And Cake's artistry, song craft, and utterly unique sound. The results are intimate songs that speak to the searcher in all of us. Through shifting instrumentation and sonic exploration, the band invites you into a world that is both familiar and unexpected. Written and recorded following the departure of bassist Eric Claridge, Any Day is The Sea And Cake's first album recorded as the trio of Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire.
This is the indie exclusive version, pressed on WHITE vinyl!
