"The first three are innocent in a way, because we didn't have an audience when we were making them," Oberst says. "But from Lifted on, I was definitely aware of an audience. Lifted was well-received right away, and then everything happened with Wide Awake and Digital Ash." Those two albums came out simultaneously. And their lead singles - "Take It Easy (Love Nothing)," from the austere, remote Digital Ash, and "Lua," from the warm, folky Wide Awake - debuted in the top two slots on the Billboard Hot 100. "First Day of My Life," also from Wide Awake, would later be voted the Number One love song of all time by NPR Music's reader's poll. Bright Eyes had officially broken through. It was a heady, exciting time, but also fraughtand tense, both because of the band's careening new fame, and because of the state of the world. When Bright Eyes made their Tonight Show debut in 2006, they chose to perform none of their shiny new hits, instead delivering a searing, harrowing rendition of their caustic anti-Bush anthem, "When The President Talks To God." These days, Oberst is still amusing himself by messing with the extremes Bright Eyes baked into this era's releases, extremes that reflected the polar, with-us-or-against-us, fractious feel of the times. The reworked Digital Ash tracks, originally so clean and elegant, are, on the companion EP, full of "harmonica and mandolins - folky vibes," Oberst says. While the analogue sweetness of the Wide Awake songs have been put through a detached nihilism filter.

Double black and yellow swirled colored vinyl LP pressing. Includes digital download. Phantogram's music sounds like it's made by a band from the city. Electronic loops, Hip Hop beats, Shoegaze, Soul and Pop each finds it's way into their songs. Unexpectedly, the band doesn't live and work in a major urban center, but rather calls the town of Saratoga Springs, NY (population 26,186) home. Despite the cultural influence of local Skidmore College and a relatively small scene of adventurous musicians and listeners, Saratoga isn't exactly teeming with fans of J Dilla, My Bloody Valentine, or Serge Gainsbourg. But Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, the pair who make up Phantogram have flourished in Saratoga. In fact, the town itself isn't rural enough for their taste they drive almost every day another 45 minutes into upstate farmland to a barn they call Harmony Lodge to write and record.

Double gold colored vinyl LP pressing. There would be no Austin City Limits were it not for Willie Nelson. He started it all in 1974, performing on the original pilot episode, and has been a large part of ACL history ever since. He's appeared on more programs than any single artist, but this particular show (recorded on September 6, 1990) captures him and the family band at their best. It's all here, all the Willie classics, his signature songs and fan favorites. His trusty guitar, "Trigger, " and that voice, that unique phrasing, that makes Willie Nelson one of the world's most original singers, whether he's wailing the blues, honky tonkin, ' crooning pop standards or rockin' the house. Everybody knows the story: the boy from Abbott, Texas who grew up playing music with his sister Bobbie, who moved to Nashville to stake his claim, but after years of writing classic songs for other artists ("Crazy, " "Night Life, " "Funny How Time Slips Away"), got tired of playing the game and moved back to Texas. He chose Austin as his new home, and nothing has been the same ever since. This performance shows Willie at the top of his game. Back then he truly was and still is the "King of Country." - Terry Lickona (producer Austin City Limits)

During the rehearsals it turned out that each and every sound is important, that each and every second of the composition revealed itself causing our bursts of natural joy. We discussed the performance of all the parts in advance, and then, performed them in a totally different way to what we have arranged. The ancient magic of music prompted us with such suggestive solutions that even discussions were no longer needed. We just played the music and smiled, we smiled and played once again. The music flow carried us away, the ideas appeared suddenly but evidently, and our joy became an integral part of the composition.' Album 'Earth Particles' was released in 2017. Certified 'Gold Album' Award in Poland. 2XLP, 12', 180G, 45RPM, GATEFOLD (black colored paper, golden ink), 300 HAND NUMBERED UNITS ON CLEAR VINYL

From the anthemic Virginia (Wind In The Night), an ode to Russells native state to which hes recently relocated (If it was solely up to me, Id live her for the rest of my life, he says), to the minimal but momentous Tiebreaker, Every Shade of Blue showcases The Head and the Hearts unique ability to dip its toes into a variety of musical genres. Its the bands knack for supreme melody, however, that remains a constant. And its why many of the songs on Every Shade of Blue, including the slow-rolling title track, Every Shade of Blue, which Russell says has a Sinatra vibe, are undeniable pop-radio missiles. The bands ability to create music that appeals to listeners common denominator, Russell says, is something he not only wont shy away from but is immensely proud of.
