    Sum 41 - Order In Decline - HOPELESS RECORDS
    Grammy nominated rock band Sum 41 is back and bigger than ever with their seventh studio album Order In Decline. Written, produced, mixed, and engineered by frontman Deryck Whibley, Order In Decline is a burst of uninhibited feeling, a page out of his journal, a window into his soul that reflects on extremely personal and vulnerable events. The album is undoubtedly Sum 41's heaviest and most aggressive album in their storied career, while also being it's most dynamic and raw.

    UPCOMING RELEASES 

    Violent Femmes - Hotel Last Resort

    Violent Femmes - Hotel Last ResortViolent Femmes - Hotel Last ResortViolent Femmes - Hotel Last Resort - PIAS America
    The groundbreaking band’s 10thstudio album, Hotel Last Resort resides among Violent Femmes’ finest work, simultaneously refining and redefining their one-of-a-kind take on American music, mingling front porch folk, post-punk, spiritual jazz, country blues, avant garde improvisation, and golden age rock ‘n’ roll. Founded and fronted of course by Gano and Ritchie, the group remains as warm, wise and weird as ever before, with such new favorites as “Another Chorus” and “Everlasting You” continuing to mine the vast range of ideas, melodic complexity, and organic sonic craftsmanship that has characterized the band’s body of work since their landmark 1983 debut.

    Of Monsters And Men - Fever Dream

    Of Monsters And Men - Fever DreamOf Monsters And Men - Fever DreamOf Monsters And Men - Fever Dream - Republic
    You think you know the Icelandic band Of Monsters And Men, but you have no idea. Within the first minute of their new single 'Alligator' you'll be wondering if this huge anthem is the brainchild of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs fronting Arcade Fire –all thumping drums, brimming guitars and a call-to-arms chorus about taking control. During a day of final mixing at the LA studio of their co-producer Rich Costey (MUSE, Vampire Weekend, Chvrches), the five-piece gather in stages.

    Particle Kid - Window Rock

    Particle Kid - Window RockParticle Kid - Window RockParticle Kid - Window Rock - OAR
    Window Rock, releasing on OAR, is an album yearning to find meaning in a morally ambivalent world. Micah Nelson, who records under the name Particle Kid, seeks to achieve this goal via 9 new, kaleidoscopic tracks, exploring the mythology of the self, with verve, minimalism and simplicity. Window Rock proves to be Particle Kid's most outward facing work thus far, with Micah's reverberant lyricism and melodic scope now grounded by the chemistry of Tony Peluso and Je Smith, the rhythm section of his longtime touring band Insects vs Robots. The LP will be released on a 180gram vinyl, with a custom center-split die cut gatefold jacket.

    Glitterer - Looking Through The Shades

    Glitterer - Looking Through The ShadesGlitterer - Looking Through The ShadesGlitterer - Looking Through The Shades - Anti
    Looking Through The Shades, is Glitterer's debut full-length album, featuring Ned Russin, bassist/vocalist of Title Fight. This is Glitterer all glown up. Now there are live drums (twin brother Ben did the honours) and dopamine-releasing fuzzy guitars to go with the synths, the bass, and the voice. Now there’s a full 14-song tracklist to luxuriate in. Produced by Alex Giannascoli and Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Power Trip, Sumerlands) the album delivers Glitterer’s best-yet sonics and songs. The lyrics are still insouciantly tortured, in a reluctant-college-boy kind of way, the choruses are still obscenely catchy, and the arrangements still carry not so much as an ounce of excess fat. From the saturated distortion of the opener, “The Race” (“I wish I could look at your life and know it’s mine”), through the road-weary “1001” (“I sang 1,000 songs / didn’t want to sing again”) and the vox-and-bass-only Side B outlier “The News” (“I used to be original”), the listener is simultaneously satiated and left wanting more.

    Yuna - Rouge

    Yuna - RougeYuna - RougeYuna - Rouge - Verve
    There's a timeless groove to the R&B of Yuna on her fourth forthcoming album Rouge, one that s been two years in the making. It's the most ambitious project the songwriter has ever taken on, and the first album she's putting out as a fully realized woman. It's also an LP that she worked harder than ever on, re-visiting songs, editing them down, adding new layers, enriching every single moment to make it the most luscious musical experience for her audience. Yuna makes soulful pop that contains the sultriness of Sade, the flair of Aaliyah, and the sweetness of Brandy. Via her three pre-existing albums, Yuna has built her palette of melodic, uplifting soul. Her third album Chapters in 2016 was something of a breakthrough, featuring production from Fisticuffs and features with Usher ("Crush") and Jhene Aiko. Her new album s list of features is mouth-wateringly impressive. It includes: Little Simz, Kyle, G-Eazy, Jay Park and Masego. Together with executive producer Robin Hannibal and a team of producers (Jason "J. Lbs" Pounds, Fisticuffs, Cardiak, Jordan Reyes) she explored sampling culture for the first time. The title Rouge is for the color red, which has been calling to her at this moment. "It's a feeling I'm having right now. I just got married. I've become the woman I've always wanted to be. The whole album is about how I am with myself: I'm comfortable with my relationship, with my focus on my career. It's the color of becoming this woman that I am."

    Paul McCartney - Paul Is Live

    Paul McCartney - Paul Is LivePaul McCartney - Paul Is LivePaul McCartney - Paul Is Live - Capitol
    Paul Is Live, recorded during the tour in support of Off The Ground, was Paul McCartney's fifth live album and is famous for its title's double meaning and the rumour-scotching cover art. Ever since the 1969 release of Abbey Road, there had been hoax-fuelled stories of Paul's untimely death. The new title was a way of saying that this was most definitely not the case. The artwork is a play on the famous Abbey Road cover, with Paul crossing that same street but wearing shoes and using his left hand this time. (Originally, his bare feet and the holding of a cigarette in his right hand had supposedly been clues that it wasn't him on the cover.) As well as a raft of solo, Wings and Beatles favourites, the album also offers an insight into the band's sound checks, the final three songs all being improvised during rehearsals in various locations on the tour. Performed by Paul McCartney: Vocals, Bass, Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Piano Linda McCartney: Vocals, Keyboards Hamish Stuart: Vocals, Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Bass Robbie McIntosh: Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Vocals Wix Wickens: Keyboards, Vocals Blair Cunningham: Drums, Percussion

    Paul McCartney - Amoeba GigPaul McCartney - Amoeba GigPaul McCartney - Amoeba Gig - Capitol
    Amoeba Gig is the first full length commercial release of Paul McCartney's surprise free concert at Hollywood’s Amoeba Music on June 27, 2007. To date only four songs have seen wide release as the Amoeba’s Secret EP, two of which were nominated for Grammy Awards in 2008: "That Was Me" for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and "I Saw Her Standing There" for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance. A few years later in November 2012, an extended 12-song excerpt of the Amoeba show titled Live in Los Angeles – The Extended Set was made available free to PaulMcCartney.com premium members for a limited period. And this week, a full 21-song recording documenting possibly the most intimate L.A. show Paul has ever played will be made available to the public for the first time. The millions of people not among the luckier than lucky few hundred rubbing elbows with the likes of Ringo Starr and Woody Harrelson during that once in a lifetime in-store set will be able to experience those performances of Beatles classics “The Long And Winding Road,” “I’ll Follow The Sun” and “I’ve Got A Feeling,” Flaming Pie’s “Calico Skies,” plus Carl Perkins’ “Matchbox,” Jan Garber’s “Baby Face” and an emotional rendition of “Here Today.” Additionally, the LP will include an exclusive soundcheck recording of “Coming Up."

    Paul McCartney - Choba B CCCP

    Paul McCartney - Choba B CCCPPaul McCartney - Choba B CCCPPaul McCartney - Choba B CCCP - Capitol
    The live-in-studio Choba B CCCP (Russian for “Back In The USSR”) was released in the Soviet Union in 1988, making Paul McCartney the first Western artist to issue an album exclusively for that market. In a conscious decision to get back to his roots, Paul spontaneously spent two days covering his favorite hits from the 1950s. The sessions produced 22 songs in total (and one of the outtakes being a version of The Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There”). Choba B CCCP was a deeply personal album and a way to acknowledge fans who had supported him and The Beatles since the start. “When I was very young I asked my dad if people wanted peace,” Paul explained at the time. “He said to me, ‘Yes, people everywhere want peace – it’s usually politicians that cause trouble.’ It always seemed to me that the way The Beatles’ music was admired in the USSR tended to prove his point, that people the world over have a great deal in common. In releasing this record exclusively in the Soviet Union, I extend the hand of peace and friendship to the people of Russia.” Choba B CCCP was released in the rest of the world following the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.

    Paul McCartney & Wings - Wings Over America

    Paul McCartney & Wings - Wings Over AmericaPaul McCartney & Wings - Wings Over AmericaPaul McCartney & Wings - Wings Over America - Capitol
    Rare #1-charting triple live album, Wings Over America is a document of one the most sophisticated and dazzling rock shows of the 1970s or any decade. Paul McCartney & Wings would eventually perform to more than 600,000 people at 31 shows in the US and Canada, ending with three historic nights at The Forum in Los Angeles. It’s no exaggeration to say that the excitement that greeted Paul McCartney & Wings (Linda McCartney, Joe English, Denny Laine and Jimmy McCulloch) in the spring of 1976 as they embarked on what would become their one and only North American tour was overwhelming. Having released four consecutive chart topping albums — Red Rose Speedway, Band on the Run, Venus and Mars and At The Speed Of Sound – not to mention 1973’s Academy Award-winning James Bond theme “Live and Let Die” – Wings' career was in full flight… and as Paul’s first U.S. tour since The Beatles, the sheer joy of both the band and its fans were off the charts throughout the 90 hours of recordings distilled into this triple album. Wings Over America was last reissued in 2013 as part of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection series winning the Grammy Award for Boxed or Special Limited-Edition Package.

    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.

Tuxedo, Los Angeles-based recording artist Mayer Hawthorne and Seattle-based producer Jake One, has been steadily making a name for themselves over the past five years, standing at the forefront of a new wave of gangster boogie - one that owes as much to G-funk as P-funk. This is the territory of pre- and post-hydraulic low riders: a mélange of Cali boom-bap, analog synth bass and elegant disco that resonates truth and authenticity in an era where so many are faking the funk. Their third album, Tuxedo III, will be released on 7/19/19.

Choochtown will also see its first proper vinyl release worldwide. The vinyl version is a remastered version of the original album released in 1999. Ed Hamell on ChoochtownI was living in Brooklyn, constantly on the road, and been dropped from my major label deal on Mercury/Universal. I really had nothing to lose and I was very inspired, if I remember, by the movie Pulp Fiction and the Biggie Smalls record: Ready To Die. I recorded anywhere I could. My friend Billy Nicgorski had an analog one inch studio in his basement, his younger brother had a band and I would use them. I also did a bunch of it in my basement in Brooklyn which had a dirt floor and I set the recording gear up on plastic paint pails. Used them as drums sometimes too. I released it on my own label Such-A-Punch and it got licensed to Evangeline in the UK where it got rave reviews and established my career over there. After all the press I got for my first two albums on a major I couldn't get anything over here in the States, only that CMJ magazine which took their silliness pretty seriously who basically said, We don't know what it is but it's art. Duh. I'm pretty proud of all my records, I've been very lucky in that I've always been able to maintain complete creative control but this one I was particularly proud of because every inch of it, from the recording which one track as you'll see was recorded on my boom box, to the artwork, was all mine. ...amazing and entertaining and poignant... -- The Stereo Times Online Magazine, October 2000 ...high-spirited...manic energy..artful -- CMJ, April 2000 *****(5 stars--highest rating) Absolutely brilliant! -- UNCUT Magazine, April 2001

Scott Stapp - The Space Between The Shadows [LP]

Scott Stapp - The Space Between The Shadows [LP]

New Vinyl: $21.99   $19.99

Scott Stapp is known as a Grammy winning songwriter and frontman for Creed (over 50 million albums sold worldwide), and for his work as a solo artist who released the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013) which featured his first solo Billboard #1, “Slow Suicide.” His next solo venture reflects a new outlook after the biggest fight of his life – five years and counting. With new single “Purpose For Pain,” one of rock’s biggest names roars back to the scene with a driving, introspective new single. It is the first song from Scott Stapp’s upcoming album, THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SHADOWS, set for July 2019 release on Napalm Records. The album documents a five-year journey to find meaning – and redemption – in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light. Scott’s evolution, both personally and professionally, now reflects a powerful vocal style from an artist with a strong sense of purpose in sharing the silver lining of his survival. As such, he is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression. Scott Stapp’s With Arms Wide Open Foundation helps military vets and their families with issues of drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded Scott Stapp with the Florida Service Award and in 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.

Prince - Originals [2LP]

Prince - Originals [2LP]

New Vinyl: $35.99

This June, The Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner Bros. Records and TIDAL, will release Originals, a 15-track album featuring 14 previously unreleased recordings that illuminate the vital, behind-the-scenes role Prince played in other artists' careers. The tracks were selected collaboratively by Troy Carter, on behalf of The Prince Estate, and JAY-Z.

By the mid-1980s, Prince was dominating the charts even as a writer/producer with songs he'd composed and recorded for others. In addition to releasing nine of his most commercially successful full-length albums, he also wrote and recorded endless reels of material for proteges The Time, Vanity 6, Sheila E., Apollonia 6, Jill Jones, the Family, and Mazarati. Occasionally, Prince's original demo recordings would be used as master takes on their albums, with only minor alterations to the instrumentation and a replacement of the vocal tracks. Other times, artists would rely on his demos to guide them through their own recording process, with Prince's initial take informing their final version of his song. The aggregate effect was a complete saturation and transformation of the pop music landscape, with Prince both leading and subverting mainstream culture.

Sleepwalkers - Ages [LP]

Sleepwalkers - Ages [LP]

New Vinyl: $19.98

Each track on Sleepwalkers' Ages feels like the title song to some lost Hollywood production of the late 70s to late 80s, those formative movies that shaped young imaginations, touchstones of humor, struggle, romance and adventure. Through fourteen electrifying tracks, Sleepwalkers absorb the symbologies of American pop production and the iconographies of American rock performance with tremendous depth and feeling. Ages is a bona fide party record that is able to convey a mood of bittersweet elation through a series of well-aimed emotional arcs. The follow-up to their ‘60s fanstasia, cult-favorite debut, Greenwood Shade (2014), it feels equally effortless, backed by the band’s facility with the structures and language of pop music.

Behind this maximalist pop masterpiece are two brothers, Michael and Austin York, and Alex DeJong. Sleepwalkers are an astonishing live band possessing a sound both stadium-filling and soul-nourishing, proven over tours supporting J. Roddy Walston & The Business, The Lumineers, and The Shins. Fantastic natural songwriting, personal experience amplified to a broad lyricism, uncompromising sincerity and uncompromising commitment to ‘having a fine evening,’ all of it steeped in the vernacular culture of Richmond, Virginia.

Various Artists - The Lion King (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Live Action

Various Artists - The Lion King (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Live Action

New CD: $13.95

The Lion King —like the original 1994 version—features unforgettable music by an award-winning team, including Oscar and GRAMMY-winning superstar Elton John and Oscar and GRAMMY-winning lyricist Tim Rice, who’ve written an uplifting new song, “Never Too Late,” performed by John, that features an African choir and will appear in the film’s end credits and also on the Walt Disney Records original motion picture soundtrack.

“Just hearing that music strikes you deeply,” Favreau said. “Even if you don’t know the film or stage show, there is a spiritual strength in it. But if you know the film, and if you grew up with this music—now it can suddenly and immediately evoke the story itself, as well as all the connected memories and emotions that you have from your own past experience with ‘The Lion King,’ or from the time of your life that you were in, or your childhood, or the life events it’s connected to.

” Added Mitchell Leib, president of music and soundtracks for The Walt Disney Studios, “The incredible musical talents who came together to contribute to this project are unparalleled. Jon Favreau’s deep love and instinct for musical collaboration inspired Hans Zimmer, Lebo M, Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Tim Rice, Beyoncé, Donald Glover and the entire music team to an awesome level of generosity, spirit and commitment, resulting in a powerful journey of song, production and performance.”

“The Lion King” original motion picture soundtrack features new recordings of the original songs written by Elton John and Tim Rice, score by Oscar and GRAMMY-winning composer Hans Zimmer, plus African vocal and choir arrangements by GRAMMY-winning South African producer and composer Lebo M (Rhythm of the Pride Lands). Oscar-nominated and GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams (“Hidden Figures”/producer, “Happy”), produced five songs on the soundtrack.

In revisiting the score for “The Lion King,” Zimmer realized the original themes and music were the “emotional spine of the story.” He brought back many who worked on the original film, including Lebo M, orchestrator Bruce Fowler, conductor Nick Glennie-Smith, arranger Mark Mancina, plus several singers from the choir including Carmen Twillie (who performed “Circle of Life” in the 1994 movie).

Zimmer wanted to approach the score differently for the new film and enlisted the Re-Collective Orchestra (led by founders Matt Jones and Stephanie Matthews), along with the Hollywood Studio Symphony (comprised of Los Angeles-based session players), and his band. The goal was to rehearse and record the score like a live concert performance.

Music from the animated film released in 1994 won two Academy Awards (original song and original score), four GRAMMYS and two Golden Globes. The soundtrack was No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for 10 nonconsecutive weeks and was certified Diamond by the RIAA, for 10 million units sold.

IDER - Emotional Education [LP]

IDER - Emotional Education [LP]

New Vinyl: $21.99

Themes of anxiety, identity, mental health, and the human condition run throughout the albums 11 songs. They are consistently intricate and intimate, but draw from a multitude of influences, reflecting the multi-instrumentalists' diverse tastes. To understand the symbiosis that exists between Ider, you need only learn how the London duo's debut album got it's name. "It came from a song that I had written," says Megan Markwick, referring to the raw electro-pop anthem 'Saddest Generation', a beautiful examination of millennial malaise. "But then Lily had put in that lyric - 'Where's the emotional education we're all looking for?' And it was a penny drop moment. It's such a perfect example of the way we work, this partnership that is all entangled." "Emotional Education is what we give each other," adds Lily Somerville, "and what we're going to give you with this album."

Laville - The Wanderer [LP]

Laville - The Wanderer [LP]

New Vinyl: $19.98

Laville's teenage years followed a familiar journey through joy and trauma that saw him singing locally, before University briefly curtailed his musical ambitions. His debut album, The Wanderer, was steered by the expert hand of producer Tristan Longworth. Fascinated by cinema and poetry, Laville's lyrics dig a little deeper than most. Love, passion and commitment are recurring themes on the album, with Laville moving from the super-smooth ''Love Shine'' to the curiously infectious ''Wavy Love.'' ''Easy'' is a reflection on his gritty North London roots, and soulful standout ''The Answer'' is about toxic relationships. A bold voice that adds something distinctly new to the tapestry of soul, Laville's talent is too strong to remain a secret forever. It's time for The Wanderer to come home.
