>My Brightest Diamond – This Is My Hand CD/LP+MP3 (Asthmatic Kitty)
This Is My Hand is a journey beyond the composition of music. "I had this 'back-to-basics' moment of reading how humans were making sounds before we were using words," says Shara. Produced by Shara herself and keyboardist Zac Rae, This Is My Hand is a bold chapter in the unfurling MBD story. Its exploration of music and its rhythmic urgency escort Shara's chamber-music aesthetic out of the chamber and back into the dance hall and rock bar.

>Allah-Lahs – Worship The Sun CD/LP (Innovative Leisure)
Worship The Sun expands the sound established by the Allah-Lahs' maiden effort, honing their fusion of West Coast garage rock, Latin percussion and electric folk. The album is richly textured and timeless as a Southern California beach break, evocative of L.A.'s storied past full of beatniks, artists, surfers, nomads, remnants of a bygone Sunset Strip, golden tans and cosmic sunsets.

>This Will Destroy You – Another Language CD/2xLP+MP3 (Secretly Canadian)
Since 2004, This Will Destroy You has been forging some of the world's most brutal, dynamic, and precariously visceral instrumental rock. In addition to a vigorous tour schedule, their celebrated discography and critically renowned soundtrack work for feature films and documentaries have earned them a sizable and fervent international following
. Another Language, TWDY's fourth full length LP, marks their euphonious return from a prolonged vacuous dark period that threatened to break both the band and the members themselves.

>James – La Petite Mort CD/2xLP (BMG Rights Management)
"
La Petite Mort, the band's first album in four years, is about death. No surprise there. The title translates to English as 'The Little Death' and there's a Day Of The Dead skull in profile on the cover. Tim Booth recently lost his mother and a close friend, giving the lyrics some extra weight, naturally. Sometimes the music goes along the same path and at other times it does not. La Petite Mort finds James at a crossroads, but it's not the kind of crossroads that presents new opportunities and game-changers. It's a crossroads that asks the band and its fans if the James formula really suits their every approach. Because for subject matter so introspective, there's not much subtlety to the music inside of La Petite Mort." – Pop Matters

>The Beatles – The Beatles In Mono [Box Set] 14xLP (Capitol)
The Beatles in mono: This is how most listeners first heard the group in the 1960s, when mono was the predominant audio format. Up until 1968, each Beatles album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the mono as primary. In an audiophile-minded undertaking, The Beatles' acclaimed mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios. Each mono reissue is pressed on HQ-180gm vinyl with faithfully replicated artwork, newly mastered from the analogue master tapes.
