>Harry Hosono And The Yellow Magic Band ‎– Paraiso [Reissue/1978] CD/LP (Light In The Attic)
Haruomi Hosono

– Omni Sight Seeing [Reissue/1979] CD/LP (Light In The Attic)
– Philharmony [Reissue/1982] CD/LP (Light In The Attic)
The unbelievably prolific Haruomi Hosono is one of the major architects of modern Japanese pop music. With his encyclopedic knowledge of music and boundless curiosity for new sounds, Hosono is the auteur of his own idiosyncratic musical world, putting his unmistakable stamp on hundreds of recordings as an artist, session player, songwriter and producer.

>Death Cab For CutieThank You For Today CD/LP/Cassette (Atlantic)
Thank You For Today is the sound of Death Cab For Cutie both expanding and refining; a band 20 years into its evolution, still uncovering new curves in its signatures, new sonic corners to explore. The Seattle band’s ninth studio album, recorded in L.A. with producer Rich Costey in late 2017 and early 2018, stands alongside classic albums like their 1998 debut Something About Airplanes and 2003's masterful Transatlanticism as a definitive collection - 10 tracks that are by turns beautiful and dynamic and darkly anthemic and bittersweet. On songs such as the kinetic “Gold Rush”, “Northern Lights” and “You Moved Away” Ben Gibbard ruminates on the flux going on in his hometown and weaves a thread throughout the album about how interconnected geography is with memory, and how hard it can be to hold onto places, and to people, too.

>MitskiBe The Cowboy CD/LP (Dead Oceans)
After years of growing a nearly religious fanbase with albums like
Retired From Sad, New Career In Business and the indefatigable Bury Me At Makeout Creek, Mitski became an indie rock household name with her 2016 album Puberty 2. Her latest, Be The Cowboy, is self-described as her saddest ever, but it is also very much about maintaining command of one’s own world. As with Mitski’s previous LP Puberty 2 themes of love, identity, heartbreak and vulnerability abound on the new album. But where Puberty 2 cranked up the distortion on her grunge-rock guitar, Be The Cowboy comes wrapped in a glossier sheen from long-time producer Patrick Hyland – and it’s often at odds with the album’s underlying sense of isolation.

>Ross From Friends – Family Portrait CD/LP+MP3 (Brainfeeder)
Having recently made his inaugural outing on Brainfeeder with
Aphelion EP, British producer Ross From Friends aka Felix Clary Weatherall returns with his debut album on Flying Lotus’ label. Family Portrait is characterized by a perpetual desire to experiment and Felix's obsessive attention to detail, somehow marrying an intricately layered production style with warm, heavily saturated sonics that elevate, rather than stifle, his melodious funk.

>Animal CollectiveTangerine Reef CD/2xLP (Domino)
“Over the last few years, Animal Collective has been collaborating with a Miami-based multimedia company called Coral Morphologic. Founded by marine biologist Colin Foord and musician Jared McKay, Coral Morphologic seeks to bring awareness to the peril of the ocean’s reefs through preservation and art projects. Foord delivered a spoken word intro to ‘Coral Lords’ off Avey Tare’s 2017 album
Eucalyptus. More recently, AnCo and CoMo teamed on a new collection of songs called Tangerine Reef. Premiered live during the New York edition of David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption back in May, the music is now released as a double album.” – Consequence of Sound

The Moldy Peaches were established in the mid- ‘90s by Adam Green and Kimya Dawson, after meeting in upstate New York. The duo helped spawn the "anti-folk" music genre movement, bringing a more quirky, lo-fi punk element into the indie music scene.

>LOW - DOUBLE NEGATIVE (CLEAR Vinyl LOSER Edition) LP
In 2018, Low will turn twenty-five. Since 1993, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker—the married couple whose heaven-and-earth harmonies have always held the band’s center—have pioneered a subgenre, shrugged off its strictures, recorded a Christmas classic, become a magnetic onstage force, and emerged as one of music’s most steadfast and vital vehicles for pulling light from our darkest emotional recesses. But Low will not commemorate its first quarter-century with mawkish nostalgia or safe runs through songbook favorites. Instead, in faithfully defiant fashion, Low will release its most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album ever: 'Double Negative,' an unflinching eleven-song quest through snarling static and shattering beats that somehow culminates in the brightest pop song of Low’s career.

>WILD NOTHING - Indigo (Opaque Blue Edition Vinyl) LP
Although civilization's transition into a cyborg world seems inevitable, there are still those who recognize the beauty and power of a human touch to complement the circumvention. Jack Tatum understands this balance, and through a decade making music as Wild Nothing he has learned to embrace both sides of that dynamic - but perhaps never as distinctly as on Indigo, the fourth Wild Nothing album. On one hand, it is a return to the fresh, transcendent sweep of his debut, 2010's Gemini, and on the other, a culmination of heights reached, paths traveled, and lessons learned while creating the follow-ups, Nocturne and Life of Pause. Indigo finds Tatum at his most efficient, calculated, and confident - resulting in an artful blend of hi-fi humanity and technology that fires on all circuits and synapses.

>BLOOD ORANGE - NEGRO SWAN (Gold Edition Vinyl) 2-LP Set
“My newest album is an exploration into my own and many types of black depression, an honest look at the corners of black existence, and the ongoing anxieties of queer/people of color. A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all. The underlying thread through each piece on the album is the idea of hope, and the lights we can try to turn on within ourselves with a hopefully positive outcome of helping others out of their darkness.”

Can the family survive Rick’s insanity and all the chaos the universe throws at them?

>IRON & WINE - Weed Garden (Amber "Loser" Edition Vinyl) EP
Iron & Wine are following up their 2018 Grammy-nominated full-length Beast Epic with the aptly titled EP, Weed Garden. Having went over three years between releases prior to Beast Epic, Weed Garden arrives in short order, but right on time for Iron & Wine fans.
The six-song EP features material that was part of the writing phase for Beast Epic, but for various reasons went unfinished. The term “weed garden” could easily imply that which doesn’t belong, for principal songwriter Sam Beam, it was more about getting more “into the weeds” on a creative process to finish the material. Weed Garden serves as the perfect companion piece to last years full length.
While on tour last fall, the final pieces fell into place and a sense of urgency prevailed in bringing these songs to fruition. Space was created at the top of the year to return to The Loft recording studio in Chicago with the band behind Beast Epic - Joe Adamik, Jim Becker,
