New Release Round-Up 09-13-19



New Releases 13 September 2019
 

Korn - The Nothing - Roadrunner Records
Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis elaborated on the forthcoming LP: “Deep, within our Earth lives an extraordinary force. Very few are aware of the magnitude and significance of this place where good/evil, dark/light, bliss/torment, loss/gain and hope/despair all exist as one - pulling at us every moment of our lives. It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this ‘presence’ that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment. It’s the place where black and white energies attach themselves to our souls, and shape our emotion, choices, perspective and ultimately our very existence. There is a miraculous and small realm within this vortex and it’s the only place where balance between these dynamic and polarizing forces exists-where the soul finds its refuge. Welcome to…..The Nothing.”

The Lumineers - III - Dualtone Music Group
Two-time GRAMMY-nominated band The Lumineers are back with their third album, III, a cinematic piece presented as a narrative in three chapters, with each one centering on one main character. III’s concept began while the band was writing in the Catskill mountains, where producer Simone Felice works. Decidedly darker than their previous work in concept, but replete with their trademark expressive vocals and dynamic arrangements, III boldly and expertly goes in an artistic direction not yet traveled by the band. The Lumineers have enjoyed substantial commercial success; their 2012 self-titled debut featuring the hit single “Ho Hey” was certified triple-platinum in 2018, and their sophomore album Cleopatra was certified platinum in the same year after its 2016 release. They’ve had multiple #1 hits on the Triple A and Alternative radio charts, and have sold out tours across the world; over 300,000 tickets were sold on 2017’s Cleopatra world tour. The Lumineers have also supported icons and their musical heroes on the road, including Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and U2’s Joshua Tree tour.

Hobo Johnson - The Fall of Hobo Johnson - Reprise
The last album was called The Rise of Hobo Johnson, and it really lived up to its name. Self-produced, self-recorded, and originally self-released in late 2017, it powered a breakout year that most musicians can only dream of, beginning with the backyard performance of “Peach Scone” that brought Hobo Johnson (née Frank Lopes Jr.) YouTube viewers by the millions, and ending with a huge, intensely devoted fan base early, anticipating his next move. That next move is called The Fall of Hobo Johnson, which is (Frank hopes) more of a metaphorical title. It’s about all of the things that Frank (the person) has gone through while Hobo Johnson (the persona) has been blowing up. Namely, a lot of falling: falling in love, falling out of it, and falling apart when it was over.

_________________________________________________________

Devendra Banhart - Ma - Nonesuch
Ma is a dedication to motherhood. The title of the album comes from the realization that the word 'Ma' is a very good candidate for our first utterance and our very last whisper, the word itself means 'Mother' in countless languages. The record contains 3 parallel narratives all pointing back to motherhood. The first is one of loss and helplessness, the narrative of a mother who reluctantly had to put up her child for adoption, still loving them, but unable to be with them. This became a metaphor for my own personal experience of observing my family in Venezuela, not being able to help in any meaningful way, and the constant feeling of complete helplessness. The second narrative is everything I would ever say to the children I may or may not have. The third narrative is one of celebration, of recognizing the Mother in each being, and of gratitude for music and its mothering qualities.  Ma was recorded in Big Sur and Los Angeles, CA and was produced, arranged, and recorded with my longtime collaborator Noah Georgeson. It features appearances by many, including Cate Le Bon and Vashti Bunyan, the archetype of a mother. It will be out September 13, 2019.-Devendra Banhart

UPCOMING RELEASES

Brittany Howard - Jaime

Brittany Howard - JaimeBrittany Howard - JaimeBrittany Howard - Jaime - ATO Records
Composed and assembled over the course of several years, Jaime is a highly personal album release combining Brittany Howard's unmistakable voice with peerless, visionary and fearless songwriting. Brittany has constructed an assemblage of songs which bend the framework of what we know from her previous work with Alabama Shakes and endeavors with Thunderbitch and Bermuda Triangle, music which wholly sits in a new terrain of sound bolstered by an incredible band of musicians including Zac Cockrell of the Shakes, drummer Nate Smith and the one and only Robert Glasper.

Keane - Cause And Effect

Keane - Cause And EffectKeane - Cause And EffectKeane - Cause And Effect - Island
Cause And Effect’ is Keane's 5th studio album. Their 4 previous albums have all entered the UK charts at number 1 and accumulated sales of over 13m worldwide and 2.6 billion streams. The birth of this new album came as something of a surprise even to the band. Singer Tom Chaplin had released two successful solo albums but missed his old sparring partner Tim Rice-Oxley. Written by Keane and produced by David Kosten and the band themselves, the album features 11 new songs recorded in London.

Robbie Robertson - Sinematic

Robbie Robertson - SinematicRobbie Robertson - SinematicRobbie Robertson - Sinematic - UME
Sinematic is an enthralling set of songs that explore the darker corridors of human nature. The 13 song collection, is Robbie Robertson's first since 2011’s How To Become Clairvoyant and themes sprang from his recent film scoring for Martin Scorsese’s organized crime pic, The Irishman and his forthcoming documentary Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band. The album features guest stars such as Van Morrison, Glen Hansard, and many more.

Andrew Combs - Ideal Man

Andrew Combs - Ideal ManAndrew Combs - Ideal ManAndrew Combs - Ideal Man - New West Records
On his new album, ‘Ideal Man,’ Andrew Combs worked with producer/engineer Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Benjamin Booker) to achieve a more raw, direct sound. The collection was captured live in Cohen’s Brooklyn studio, with compact arrangements fueled by taut, elastic grooves. While Combs may be best known as a singer/songwriter in the classic 1970’s Laurel Canyon sense, he proves the true versatility of his work here, often setting his acoustic aside in favor of atmospheric synthesizers and distorted electric guitars. Combs worked with some of his favorite writers on the album, including Dylan LeBlanc, Jeff Trott, Joe Henry, and Kenny Childers, but the stories he tells here are deeply personal and remarkably vulnerable.  A sense of danger and violence underlies the entire record, much as it does the entire country, but it only serves to make the moments of beauty and connection here that much more poignant. Life is short and the clock is ticking. Andrew Combs doesn’t plan to waste a second.

New Release Round-Up 09-06-19

Post Malone - Hollywood's Bleeding

Post Malone - Hollywood's BleedingPost Malone - Hollywood's BleedingPost Malone - Hollywood's Bleeding - Republic
Post Malone stirs a mix of genres into his own sonic sound that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. His RIAA 3x Platinum certified debut album, Stoney, led the genre-bending Dallas, TX artist to his first Top 10 Billboard 200 and first #1 R&B/Hip-Hop Album while being the “#1 Debut Hip-Hop Artist of 2016”. 2019 has been packed with one milestone and achievement after another for Post Malone including “Congratulations” being certified Diamond by the RIAA.

Barns Courtney - 404 - Capitol
Hailed by Rolling Stone as a “stomping, swaggering rock & roll balancing act teetering between blinding light and total darkness,” Barns Courtney releases his newest album, 404, this week by Capitol Records. Barns wrote and produced the 10-song collection with synth wiz and longtime friend Sam Battle. All in all, 404 is a commentary on his journey from awe struck naivety to the dark realization of adulthood. Barns Courtney has already surpassed a half billion cumulative streams globally and is currently touring with Elle King. In between headline dates, he’s opened for everyone from The Who and Blur to Ed Sheeran and The Wombats, prompting The Dallas Observer to note, “At the rate he's been performing, it won’t be long until he’s burned his name into the memory of anyone and everyone who bought a ticket to see someone different.”

_________________________________________________________

Iggy Pop - Free - Loma Vista
A uniquely somber and contemplative entry in the Iggy Pop canon. Free has virtually nothing in common sonically with its predecessor (Post Pop Depression)—or with any other Iggy Pop album. As Iggy says, “Free to recoil from guitar riffs in favor of guitarscapes, from twangs in favor of horns, from back beat in favor of space; and in large part, from the effluent of my own mind and problems, in favor of trying to interpret the poetry of others…so this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen.”

_________________________________________________________

The Highwomen - The Highwomen - Low Country Sound
The Highwomen are a cleverly named new supergroup comprising country and roots rock stars Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, Maren Morris, and Natalie Hemby. After a few months of teasers and a soft debut at April’s Loretta Lynn tribute, they’re making their official introduction to the world. The group is releasing its self-titled debut album, out this week and produced by Dave Cobb, the Nashville mainstay who always seems to be behind the boards for these types of projects. (He’s also produced recent albums by Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Lori McKenna, Ashley Monroe… you get the idea.) The album features 12 songs written by various combinations of the core members plus some notable collaborators like Isbell, McKenna, Miranda Lambert, and Ray LaMontagne. It features guest appearances from Isbell, Cobb, Sheryl Crow, Yola, the Hanseroth twins, Chris Powell, and Peter Levin.

Tinariwen - Amadjar

Tinariwen - AmadjarTinariwen - AmadjarTinariwen - Amadjar - Anti
Amadjar means ‘the unknown visitor’ in the language of Tamashek, the one who seeks hospitality and who’s condemned to an inner exile, within a territory or within himself. The story of Amadjar, the ninth Tinariwen album, begins at the end of 2018, at the Taragalte Festival of nomadic cultures in the Moroccan Sahara. After a concert and a sandstorm, Tinariwen hit the road and head for Mauritania, via southern Morocco, Western Sahara and the Atlantic coast. The destination is important but no more so than the journey itself. Tinariwen are joined by their French production team, who arrive in old camper van that’s been converted into a makeshift studio. The journey to Nouakchott, capital of Mauritania, takes a dozen days or so. Every evening, the caravan stops to set up camp and the members of Tinariwen get to work under the stars – to prepare for the recording, talking things through, letting their guitar motifs, thoughts and long buried songs come. Then, during a final camp in the desert around Nouakchott that lasts about fifteen days, to an audience of scorpions, the band record their songs under large tent. In a few takes, without headphones or effects. The Mauritanian griotte Noura Mint Seymali and her guitarist husband, Jeiche Ould Chigaly, come to throw their musical tradition on the embers lit by Tinariwen – the curling vocals of Noura Mint Seymali on the song ‘Amalouna’ will become a highlight. This nomadic album, recorded in a natural setting, is as close as you can get to Tinariwen. And also, therefore, to the idea that things can evolve: bassist Eyadou plays a lot of acoustic guitar; percussionist Said tries his hand at new instruments; Abdallah exhumes songs that he’s never played on stage with Tinariwen. And that violin that appears on several songs and reminds you of the traditional imzad ; It’s actually played by Warren Ellis. The violinist in Nick Cave’s band is one of several western guests on the album. We also hear the mandolin and charango of Micah Nelson (son of the country music giant Willie Nelson, and Neil Young’s guitarist), and the guitars of Stephen O’Malley (Sunn O)))), Cass McCombs and Rodolphe Burger. The album is mixed by Joshua Vance Smith.

Guaxe - Guaxe

Guaxe - GuaxeGuaxe - GuaxeGuaxe - Guaxe - OAR
Guaxe is a musical duo that was formed spontaneously after the encounter of two Brazilian psych rockers Dino Almeida (Boogarins) and Pedro Bonifrate (Supercordas). Both members have guested on each other's recordings and had shared the stage at a few festivals together before Supercordas' dissolution in 2016. Over recent years, Dino has paid Bonifrate and his family many short visits to his home in Paraty in coastal Brazil. During these getaways, the Guaxe album was written and recorded - with 4-track machines, computers, cranky gear, 10-string guitars, children playing, and a rainforest full of lizards all around the house.  Also check out Dino Almeida's other band Boogarins who are currently on tour following the release of their recent album Sombrou Dúvida which is available now on CD & LP

Baroness in-store June 15

Baroness in-store June 15

Baroness in-store performance and meet & greet here June 15!

Baroness are doing an Independent Record Store Tour, including a stop at Darkside Records June 15 at 2pm! The band will be in-store doing a meet & greet as well as doing a special acoustic performance. The only way to get in is to purchase a copy of the in-store exclusive transparent orange and yellow/black marble of their new album 'Gold & Grey' (which are ONLY available exclusively at these tour stops) to get in! (To anyone who's preordered a different copy of the album but still wants to get in, give us a call and we can update your preorder to the in-store exclusive vinyl.)

Pre-order the vinyl: https://darksiderecords.com/UPC/8553380008777/Baroness_Gold--Grey-In-Store-Exclusive-2LP
RSVP on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/2257270001019544/

The fifth studio album from Baroness, Gold & Grey, is out on June 14th via the band's own label, Abraxan Hymns. This in-store exclusive is orange and yellow/black marble vinyl, only available here for in-store pickup! 


Grammy-nominated exploratory rock band Baroness return with their most ambitious work to date, fifth album Gold & Grey. Set for release on the band's own Abraxan Hymns, Gold & Grey spills triumphantly past genre barriers, their anthemic alt-metal hooks ricocheting between the circuitous twists of prog and jazz, the moody swirls of space-rock and noise, and the hypnotic pulses of trip-hop and 20th Century minimalism.

 
"This is the most clear representation of the artistic vision I have for the band that we've ever done," says Baroness vocalist, guitarist and founder John Dyer Baizley. "I'm surprised that we got as far with it as we did."
 
Baizley sees the diverse, adventurous album as a "lateral step" from the streamlined, immediate guitar-rock of the band's last release, Purple, championed by Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and L.A. Weekly as one of the best metal albums of 2015. Gold & Grey works like a melodic puzzle, melodies and harmonic ideas borrowed, repurposed and reinterpreted across three sides of vinyl. Lyrics are full of sonic Easter eggs; unorthodox prog is hidden inside the most accessible songs; tunes emerge from swirling chaos and dense layers of sound. The album is given color by strings, glockenspiel, tubular bells, piano, synthesizers and even field recordings of the chaos after a transformer blew up outside of the recording studio.
 
"The term I kept using was that I wanted to create something that was more kaleidoscopic than our former records," says Baizley, who embraced the wide lens and limitless journeying of artists like Pink Floyd, Neurosis, Massive Attack and Scott Walker. "We were trying to say something new with our instruments, with our sound intact, with the spirit of the band intact, but not applying the typical conventions when possible."
 
For the first time ever, there's a spotlight on Baroness' powerhouse rhythm section – driving-and-spilling drummer Sebastian Thomson (Trans Am, Publicist) and jazz-honed bassist Nick Jost. Bustling with rhythmic complexity, the band occasionally swerves into highways of math rock, post-rock, krautrock and various strains of electronic music. In addition, the band has absorbed Gina Gleason, a gifted guitarist whose résumé includes playing with Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas and jamming with both Smashing Pumpkins and Carlos Santana. Gleason's voice harmonizes with Baizley and Jost, bringing new tone to the band.
"It's great for me to have such a full-bodied trust in the other musicians in the band because they play at such a high level," says Baizley. "I never, ever in a million years thought I'd play with musicians of that caliber and now I'm surrounded by them."
 
Like Purple, the band recorded with prismatic, Grammy-winning producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Mercury Rev) at his Tarbox Studios. "There were so many split second decisions and just weird ideas that got used," says Baizley. "I credit Dave for a lot of this because he was never one to say 'No, that's insane.' It was like almost the more out there the idea, the more likely he was to encourage it to be developed and grown.”
 
"We went outside, in front of Dave's studio, on one of his off days, we miked up a wooden post and hammered a nail into it," says Baizley. "There's so much hidden in there. There's also some audio samples of some of my friends. I literally did the Pink Floyd thing. I set up a little booth in my basement. I said, go down there, you got five minutes, tell me the toughest thing you want to tell me. And boy, it was tough to listen to. I pulled those quotes, effected them and they popped into one of the tracks."
 
Lyrically, Gold & Grey plumbs similar depths of emotion. On previous albums, Baizley has sung boldly and openly about his mental health and the recovery process from the traumatic bus accident the band and their crew suffered in 2012.
 
"Where Purple was me lyrically trying to work out how to adjust to a new normal, I think Gold & Grey is a more grown-up and more subtle collection of words that reflect how I am trying to deal with the longer term effects of having experienced so many terrible things," says Baizley. "There's a mental component. There's a physical component. I choose to use the band as a place where I can take all of this stress, pain, anxiety, all these realities, and make them something good."
 
Nearly 15 years since releasing their first EP, Baroness are finding a way forward by reveling in chaos.
 
"We'd listen to playback and there was a general sense of confusion," says Baizley of the Gold & Grey sessions. I couldn't figure out how Gina was making that sound. I didn't understand how the rhythm that Nick and Sebastian were playing worked with what I was doing – but it did. It was a really exciting to feel like we were maybe on the edge of just falling apart. We didn't want to know what was going on. We wanted to be always a little bit surprised by ourselves."

Win The Beatles vinyl autographed by Prudence Bruns ("Dear Prudence")!

The Coalition of Independent Record Stores and Darkside Records present your chance to win a copy of The Beatles 'White Album' on vinyl autographed by Prudence Farrow Bruns (of the Beatles song “Dear Prudence”) with all proceeds going to raise money for victims of Hurricane Michael. Winners will be chosen Dec 24th and tickets are available now at 611 Dutchess Tpk in Poughkeepsie NY.

When Hurricane Michael hit the Florida panhandle earlier this year it was the 3rd-most intense Atlantic hurricane to make landfall in the contiguous US and the strongest storm on record in the Florida Panhandle, causing an estimated $15 billion in Damage. Even as a month has already passed, there are thousands of families that are homeless, displaced, in shelters & pop up tent cities. So many families have lost everything & are just trying to find their way.

“Hurricane Michael has brought out the best in our community” says Tom at Central Square Records, a participating Independent Record Store located in Florida. “Local individuals, organizations and schools have all stepped up to help our neighbors to the east. From handing out hot meals & bag lunches, chain sawing trees, tarping roofs, providing free medical care, new school supplies & clothing to the kids, there is such a need for help.”

The story goes that when the Beatles went to India to learn Transcendental Meditation from the Maharishi, Mia Farrow was hanging out with John at the time. Prudence Farrow Bruns tagged along and was so taken with TM, she would stay in her little bungalow and meditate for hours. One morning, Paul and John serenaded her outside her window with a little made-up tune: "Dear Prudence... won't you come out and play." The rest is history. Today, Prudence is a Florida local and longtime supporter of independent music shops who has signed 45 copies of the new vinyl reissue of the Beatles’ “White Album” which are being raffled off at participating record shops, including Darkside Records in Poughkeepsie to raise money to be split between two FL local organizations, the Sonder Project and Point Washington Medical Clinic.

You can purchase raffle tickets at Darkside Records for a suggested donation of $5, 5 for $20, or an arms length for $50. Tickets can also be purchased online at http://bit.ly/dsprudence.  One winner will be chosen on Dec 24th.

Darkside Records is the Hudson Valley’s largest independent record shop, located at 611 Dutchess Tpk (Rt 44 in the former OTB building) in Poughkeepsie, voted Best of the Hudson Valley ‘Best Record Store’ for two consecutive years (2015-2016). Specializing in music, movies, hifi audio equipment, CBD, gifts & more in addition to hosting regular free, all ages live events including an outdoor bazaar, van shows, open mic, coloring nights (sponsored by Hudson Valley Tattoo Co), and live music (including Mike Doughty, Andrew McMahon, Songhoy Blues, Lacuna Coil & The Felice Bros).

The Sonder Project: The Sonder Project began as a group of volunteers who share a desire to strengthen not only their local communities, but communities across the world. Immediately following the storm, volunteers from The Sonder Project traveled to the impact areas to see if they could provide assistance. What began as an organic desire to assist our neighbors has since evolved into a highly organized daily operation to send volunteers and supplies street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, with direction and support from local and emergency management officials.

Point Washington Medical Clinic: Point Washington Medical Clinic (PWMC) is a volunteer-driven, free medical clinic servicing the South Walton area. The mission of Point Washington Medical Clinic is to build a stronger and healthier community by providing high-quality primary health care regardless of the patient’s means or access. PWMC has now opened a satellite location in Panama City, providing much needed medical care to those affected by Hurricane Michael.

Rockin’ Santa, aka Kiss Kringle is local to the Hudson Valley and has been performing as Santa for over 8 years for charities, NY Kiss Army get togethers, parties and two fundraisers here at Darkside Records. He has fundraised previously for EMMA's ARMY Foundation (supporting families affected by Childhood Cancer), the 
Dutchess County SPCA, North East Westchester Special Recreation, Inc.(a community-based therapeutic recreation agency serving children and adults with developmental disabilities in the North-East portion of Westchester County, NY), as well as several group homes and schools in the lower hudson valley.

Black Friday is Nov 23- see the list of exclusive titles now!


Once again we take a day to honor independent record stores and our favorite physical music format! Record Store Day takes place every year on the third saturday in April (and again on Black Friday), and we'll be celebrating with food, live music, sales, giveaways, and as always the exclusive, super limited-edition releases. 

RSVP to our facebook event for all the complete details, updates, exclusive offers and more!

Since its inception, Black Friday has turned the day after Thanksgiving into the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. Traditionally, Black Friday was about super-cheap prices, and for years was synonymous with being up super-early at chain and mall stores. In some places, that's what this is still about. But we really like the idea of a shopping season, especially when that shopping is, at its heart, a way to show the people you like that you like them. (And a way for them to show you. Gift-getting is awesome, too.

----------------------------------

Influential Cleveland, Ohio-based metal pioneers Mushroomhead recently announced the release of their upcoming DVD, entitled VOLUME III, a follow up to the widely-acclaimed DVD’s Volume 1 (2005) and Volume 2 (2008). The DVD is set to hit retailers on August 17, 2018 via Megaforce Records and will feature over 90 minutes of new material – including stunning new music videos, backstage antics, and exclusive never-seen-before content.

MUSHROOMHEAD are thrilled to release a brand new, terrifying, cinema-quality music video for the alternate version of their track, “We Are The Truth”, cut from their most recent and successful charting album, The Righteous & The Butterfly (the album debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart, and #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Chart). The track and video feature Jackie Laponza of Unsaid Fate on guest vocals.

Impressively, the video is a complete DIY production, featuring sets the band built themselves and shot in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. Watch the video here via VEVO: https://youtu.be/NxviGrBMKKY

“As you can imagine, the entire MUSHROOMHEAD camp is heavily into Horror films,” says producer/drummer/founder Steve “Skinny” Felton. “So, we decided to do an ‘Evil Dead’ tribute. Dr. F, Stitch and myself were responsible for all set designs. I think the end result is very creepy and a lot of fun.”

This single LP has been curated and produced by Ryan Graveface (Casket Girls, Dreamend) and all of the music is sourced from the original tapes. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, Unsolved Mysteries is one of the longest running programs in television and the inspiration for dozens of imitators. It is also one of the first television shows with an audience interactive call-to-action requesting viewer tips to help solve actual cases. Each episode consists of five segments profiling real-life mysteries and an update of a case which has been solved, thanks to a viewer tip. The segments are drawn from a variety of several different categories: Murder, Missing Persons, Wanted Fugitives, UFOs, Ghosts, The Unexplained (Paranormal), Missing Heirs, Amnesia, Fraud, among others. A great deal of these episodes are now on Amazon Prime if you want to brush up before picking up the LP.

New Release Round-Up 01-26-18

 

Calexico - The Thread That Keeps Us

Calexico - The Thread That Keeps UsCalexico - The Thread That Keeps UsCalexico - The Thread That Keeps Us - New West Records
Over the past two decades, a strong sense of place has shaped the music of Calexico, infusing their albums with a stylistic unpredictability and richness of texture. While 2015’s Edge of the Sun brought the Tucson-bred band to the Mexico City borough of Coyoacán, their new full-length The Thread That Keeps Us mostly came to life in a house studio near the Northern California coast nicknamed “The Phantom Ship” by CALEXICO vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino.

Hollie Cook - Vessel of Love - Merge Records
Hollie Cook combines her unique vocal talent with charming charisma to craft her own dynamic strand of lovers rock with enduring tropical vibes, weaving a path from her West London roots to an arena of diverse collaborations, critically acclaimed records, and iconic live appearances around the world. Cook’s ability to continually surprise, delight, and progress solidifies her position as one of the most exciting voices in reggae, and this is crystal clear on her third full-length and Merge debut, Vessel of Love.

Ty Segall goes all the way, flipping the Freedom coin to find passion, laughter and savagery on both sides. A head-spinning compendium of stompers, weepers, ballads, screamers, bangers and funker-uppers, all marking a different impasse, like a flag whirling into a knot, exploding and burning on contact, in the name of life and loathing and the pursuit of what you love.

It's been 4 years since the critically acclaimed, Grammy nominated, and #1 Billboard Blues album Seesaw was released by Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa.

A perfect marriage of soul, hip-hop, dub and timeless club sounds that act as a salvo masterpiece of contemporary and classic genre-blending, brilliantly solidifying Nightmares On Wax place as an inspirational electronic music figurehead.

Cornelius - Mellow Waves [LP] - Rostrum Records
Acclaimed Japanese producer, composer, and recording artist Cornelius first proper studio album in over 11 years, featuring the singles If You're Here, Sometime / Someplace, and In a Dream. 180g black vinyl gatefold LP

Gotta find Tina too, the last to see Billy. Sign the papers. Something's fishy. Maybe I should call Paul? She'd go back on their contract. He'll go with her. Get your jacket, asshole. He'll call Tina now. See what she knows. Chuck is certifiable. Chuck told that Tina was the last to see Billy. Chuck stole Billy's truck. Billy called the sheriff. Is "Chuck", Richard? Audrey's son? Charlie and Tina on the phone. This scene is endless...painfully endless. Who are all these people? Oh my goodness. Thank you, Tina. Sorry to call so late. Unbelievable what you're telling me.
